"He is the most disastrous president in modern times. Not worse now. He hasn't been in office a year. Here's what? I don't understand. This is what impeachments for. You got to lay the foundation. You got to build the case. It takes time, but it can be done. The Democrats lowered the bar Impeachment lowered it so far in my view was unconstitutional. What they did to Donald Trump. Great one Mark Leveson weeknights at six. Listen on the 77 W ABC Mobile app. Now the O Reilly update brings you something you might not know. 59 years ago this month or riot broke out at the University of Mississippi and enraged mob attacked U. S marshals stationed on campus. Why the admission of a black U. S. Air Force veteran James MEREDITH, Here is the story. Born June 25th 1933 in rural Mississippi, Mr. MEREDITH graduated high school joined the military in 1951 serving at an air base in Japan. He returned to his home state determined to become the first African American to attend all mess. He studied at Jackson State College of Black School from 1960 to 61, then applied for admission to the University of Mississippi. The administration there immediately moved to block James MEREDITH. A racist move to be sure. In February, the College Center vet a telegram denying his emission. After a little explanation of the rejection, he filed a lawsuit with the assistance of the ACP. After a legal battle, the Supreme Court ruled on September 10th 1962 That James MEREDITH was to be admitted to Ole Miss Mississippi Governor Ross Barnett tried to prevent his enrollment by assuming the position of registrar at the school. But on September 30th 1962 a deal was reached between the governor and the U. S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy to allow MEREDITH to enroll. Then all hell broke loose. A mob of angry Weitz confronted US marshals guarding James MEREDITH. The crowd assaulted the feds with bricks outside the school's administration building. Federal troops were quickly deployed to quell the unrest. And James MEREDITH needed 24 hour security at Ole Miss. The troops remained on campus for nearly a year to ensure his safety. Despite these challenges, James MEREDITH graduated with a bachelor's degree in August 1963. Today. He and his wife, Judy, live in Jackson, Mississippi. And here's something else you might not know. Mr MEREDITH struggled to integrate the University of Mississippi pave the way for millions of others as of this year. 21% of the entire student body at Ole Miss is comprised of minorities. James MEREDITH is a true American hero whose story has not been told nearly enough. Back after this.

"Yes wave of before we leave that two things. that strike me patricia. One is so amazing that she was talking about dignity as a constitutional right protected in the thirteenth and fourteenth. I mean that that was before. I started hearing justice kennedy and justice ginsburg talking about dignity. So there's a way in which just as she just saw the inherent weakness in separate equal. She was like. I'm not gonna sit here and waste my time making equal facilities. This is about human dignity. There's a way in which in all the ways that she's ahead of her time she really sees the constitution as a document that is promoting equal dignity long before afoul long before justice. Kennedy is writing it in. And it does seem to me that it's another way in which she's just so boundlessly ahead of her time absolutely so so foundational so that many of the signature rulings that we have seen recently to me. Go all the way back to polly's notion of of human dignity in in human equality in authentic self hood so yes that undergirds brown it undergirds of the civil. The civil rights The civil rights work of the sixties end and her fight to ensure that title seven which would include sex as a category in that deal She almost single-handedly Say that by Drafting a memo memorandum. That was sent to every congressperson a to attorney general robert kennedy and she and a network of women activists got that memorandum to lady bird johnson with the cover letter in which pauline mary. Say it you know. Women are being discouraged from speaking out about this. But i want you to know that the bill without the sex amid in it would mean that Only black man would have Equal protection and not black women and she was on edge until she got a note from ladybird social secretary which it said that the the sh- that lady bird hit sheared the argument with her husband. President johnson and that And that the amendment would the be a would remain as as it was so the other thing about Paulie i'm going back to an earlier question. You raised about her About how her contributions just not forefront in the forefront in there's another part of person of personality that kind of i it's it's confusing in the sense that here's a person with these bold ideas but temperamentally shy an introvert in many ways and You know she would call you out but into personally shy so that when now is formed polly murray woods. Comfortable with the idea of better for dan being the national spokesperson who represented the newly found a national organization for women in in with the media and the larger Community so i think it is polly mary. Shyness to that has contributed somewhat to the extent that she is not identified with projects in organizations for which she clearly is. One of the founders. We'll be back in just a moment with more about polymers. Life and legacy in the law with the directors of my name is pauline. Murray betsy west and julia cohen and consulting producer professor patricia bell scott but first a few brief messages from our sponsors and before we leave the law. I wanna give betsy or julia. You're both of you a chance to just talk about this arc. Because i think patricia sort of laid out. She gets really interested in the law. She feels that this is the vehicle for bringing about Massive social change as we've suggested now a couple of times. Her name is on the brief in reid. V read She ends up although totally une credited. Doing some of the work that becomes the foundation of brown v board. All of this happens and sheep. She presumably could find a life in the law and yet in the end and this is i can't help a contrast her to our bg rpg lashes herself to institutions. She lashes herself to the acl youth. She then lashes herself to the federal appeals court and then the supreme court. There's a way in which and i guess. I'm just so curious about this. I think patricia makes this point. That poli gets really frustrated with institutions. That aren't moving fast enough. That are blinkered that Are just not getting it done quickly enough and i can't help but want again either betsy julie for you to walk me through this counterfactual. Where if she had stuck with some institution if she had just said i rise and fall either with the courts or the universities or some institution that this might have been an easier road for her. Or if just the institution of the law itself in the end wasn't enough for her the way it was enough for our bg. Yeah this is. Julie i i mean i think The easy road was really not of much interest to pauli. Murray i you know. That's at the start of the premise of all this polly said On a number of occasions that that is super interested in being at the vanguard of all kinds of different movements once others joined in and wanted to take up that fight then polly was ready to move on to the next thing. I mean we. We love the moment in our film. Where eleanor holmes norton. Who was a classmate of paulie paulie was getting doctorate at yale law. School and eleanor norton was a j. d. student You know eleanor holmes norton and some of the other black yale law students were out there. You know fighting for civil rights as people were in the nineteen sixties and paulie at. That point really was most interested in talking about feminism. And which was not a known not a very well known concept in the early sixties. And basically eleanor schwartz. Just that's your so. We were all like wondering. What are you talking about. paulie Paulie liked to liked being way ahead of the curve and was willing to do that. Maybe at the expense of becoming a a central figure in a movement. That paulie stuck with over a course of of decades. I mean there's a great moment. Where paulie says i. I like to think that. I have lived and will live to see. My lost causes found So even if it wasn't paulie that was going to drag something over the finish line. If police started something and then it moved forward. You know with or without folly than that still victory made. There's i think that patricia captured this. But there's a restlessness to pauli murray and you see that that always pushing always going to the next thing finally gets to paul..

"Military. Dolores jeeter was born on july twenty second nineteen thirty nine in central point virginia. Her family was of african american european and native american descent. Unlike most southern cities in the height of jim crow central point was integrated black and white people mixed freely with relatively little racial tension. It was there that a teenage mildred met and fell in love with a young white man named richard. Loving mildred and richard began quietly dating when military became pregnant at eighteen. The couple decided to get married. But in nineteen fifty eight interracial marriage was illegal in the state of virginia barred from marrying in their home state. Mildred and richard drove to washington. Dc to tie the not. The young couple had only been married a few short weeks when in the early hours of one july morning. Sheriff garnett brooks and two deputies stormed into the couple's bedroom and central point acting on an anonymous tip that the couple was living in violation of virginia law. The police demanded to know. Mildew its relationship to richard. Mildred said plainly. I'm his wife and gestured at their marriage certificate on the wall. This did little to persuade the police. Even though they had not married within state lines the virginia law still forbade black and white citizens for marrying outside of virginia and then returning to live in the state as a result both richard and a pregnant mildred spent nights in jail. They eventually pleaded guilty to violating virginia law. Mildred ann richards plea bargain spared them from a one year prison sentence but ordered them to leave the state and not returned together for twenty five years. The loving somewhat followed orders after settling their court fees. They moved to washington dc where they raised. Three children occasionally making independent trips into virginia to visit family at great risk of imprisonment.

Merrick Garland's Radical Plan To Combat Voter Suppression Is Not What It Seems

"Garland. I wonder the Democrats. Desperately wanted him on the United States Supreme Court. He's not a moderate, He's not thoughtful. He's not reasonable. Is another one of them. Them. Radical. I want you to know what he's doing. We have the head of the Civil rights division of the Justice Department who is a flat out her name is Clark as I recall flat out racist, she said, and written some of the most unbelievable stuff. I think Susan Collins voted for confirmation to but nonetheless, there she is. And having secured that position. At the request of Biden and this attorney general. What's happening now? According to Yahoo News, John Ward. Attorney General Merrick Garland. Said that the Department of Justice will dramatically increase its focus on preventing voter suppression. Now you have to understand something. Voter suppression for the Democrat party means what Means state legislatures having rational voting systems in place. Not anarchy. So he's going to increase its focus on preventing voter suppression by doubling the number of lawyers in the civil rights division. In response to a rash of lawsuits or look Excuse me. Laws that have been made made it harder to vote in many states. Now you have to understand how lousy the media Made it harder to vote in many states. So if I want to leave Virginia and vote in, say, Maryland and they say you can't because I'm not a citizen of Maryland. You see, Maryland has just made it harder for me to vote in Maryland. Mr. Producer you understand? It's just disgusting. Our media have really killed this country. We will use all existing provisions to ensure that we protect every qualified Americans seeking to participate in our democracy, Garland said in one of his Castro like speeches Garland compared his action to that taken by former Attorney General Robert Kennedy, who said the Justice Department needed a lot more lawyers to combat laws and said says nothing to do. With what Robert Kennedy had to do during segregation. This is so outrageously disgusting. They're going to double the lawyers and the civil rights division and unleash them on our country. Harass the state legislatures try and push this H R one s one into law, forcing states to adopt them. Because Congress couldn't pass it. That is exactly what's going on here.

"You till nine o'clock this morning. Your crystal sales up at nine. Friend, Dr Allan Saxe. Re ta joins us right now. Political science professor kind enough to give us some insight into what's going on in the world. Especially right now, with the resignation of Attorney General Bar E. I guess you could kind of see this coming. It doesn't happen until then. What? 20 year whatever of a December You're down in the last three or four weeks in the administration. Is this a big deal and I don't think it's a big deal. It could have been if it was done some months ago. But today he only has another month to go anyway. So where he left and day the reason why according to a lot of people is that he did not want to make a lot of the stuff public that he knew a lot of the investigations of the Biden family. And I other issues, and President Trump is very aggravated with a aggravated with that, and with because Is our country, our government? Are we accepting the fact that it's okay to have Illegal votes counted. I hope not. You raise a very important question. I think a lot of people know if you look at the polls that this election was tainted It's some people say was stolen. In fact, it's really jumped all over the country here in Arlington, Texas, and Little Town. Well, not so little anymore. But if you drive down some of the streets, especially Go on road on some some weekends. You'll sign that a lot of demonstrators and they had a at least up until recently, they had flags out. Don't steal the vote. And stop the seal and a lot of American flags and trump flags. And if they did makes him what now, but the rancor, the aggravation and what happened in that last election will not go soon. When you look at the job that Barr did his attorney general, and we go back to what you were talking about earlier, didn't he didn't release the information about these investigations, among among other things, and your mind Did he do his job correctly? Is will he go down as Good attorney general under Donald Trump. Very interim. He wasn't there that long to make a big impression. The attorney general has a tough role. They're supposed to be there to protect the president but also to administer justice. And in the DOJ, the Department of Justice, in fact, going all the way back to the Kennedy years. One of the reasons why old Joe Kennedy, the father of Opportunity client on I mean that an affectionate way. Um, the reason why John Kennedy President Kennedy picked his brother for attorney General Robert Kennedy was that the father knew that it does. John Kennedy We need a backup. We need protection. And that's why he takes Bobby Kennedy, the brother to be the attorney general under John Kennedy. Ah, very interesting historical note and their suicide truth in that. So, Mr Barr and all its remained. Generals have a real problem. How do you protect the president and also how you administer justice. And I think that Mr Barr got caught in a hole that way. For Dr Alan Sacks after traffic.

"Equal housing lender license in all 50 states in MLS number 30 38 16. Seattle's Morning News Thiss Mourning, the Trump legal team got a court order allowing members of their team in as observers for the vote counting in Philadelphia this morning. And as former state attorney General Robert Kennedy tells this is not the only legal challenge in Pennsylvania has a lawsuit going that is likely to go to the U. S. Supreme Court over the state Supreme Court's decision to allow ballots that air received after Election Day. To be counted. The state law in Pennsylvania states that all ballots must be received by five PM on election day in order to be counted, including bouts that air mailed in, and they upheld that rule for the primary election earlier this year, But the state Supreme Court subsequently found back in September. That because of all the problems created by covert by the pandemic, that we're in a state of natural disaster, and they decided the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania decided that if ballots arrive by the end of the day on November 6, they would still be counted. That's the challenge that was taken up to the Supreme Court. Supreme Court declined to rule on it prior to Election Day this week, but it's likely that they'll take it up after this week. At some point, Okay, so they have one more day to receive balance, right? That's there's no controversy about that. Is there Well, the controversy is under what pence of any state law the ballots were all supposed to be in by five PM November 3rd. So the Supreme Court basically off of Pennsylvania, you know, basically created a new deadline and their ruling. The question is, is that constitutional Constitution and doesn't violate Doesn't violate federal statutes because federal statutes in particular, um three U. S. C section once federally designated a uniformed election day. On so the Republicans in Pennsylvania, arguing that allowing ballots to come in after election it'd be counted violates that uniformity provisions. When it's like, though, we allow that as long as you get the balloting is postmarked by Election Day. We accept it. Indeed, And that's a very that's very interesting. So it would be curious to see the Supreme Court deciding that states that make that decision are somehow violating a federal law that seems unlikely to me Maurin Trist ing or not more interesting, But another interesting argument is that the state Supreme Court of Pennsylvania said that absentee or mail in ballots received in three days of election day will be counted even if they're not postmarked. Which is interesting, because of course, in our state. You have to have a postmark or drop it off at a drop off box by the end of the day, Election day. And the reason for that, of course, is it without a postmark? If it comes in by mail, How do you know what I was actually mailed by Election Day? Yeah, so it's safe to jump into the alibis. Right. But the problem is, though, if he had the conservative Supreme Court, why would they usual ruling that would change the rules of other states that don't have any problems in this area. Well, they they can't change the rules of other states under the federal Constitution. Time, place and manner of elections is controlled by state law. That's why we have this unusual top two primary in Washington state. I had to go to the state of the U. S. Supreme Court to defend it, but they did uphold it because we got to set our basic election rules. However, there are federal constitutional requirements there federal statutory requirements back in 2000. The state of Florida was after after many weeks was ordered by the U. S. Supreme Court to stop counting ballots because the Supreme Court found that the different ways they were recounting ballots violated principle of equal protection under the federal Constitution. In other words, the likelihood that you're about to counter recounted in Florida weeks after the election depended on what county you happen to live in and cast your vote in That was deemed to violate equal protection. But here's the thing, Dave, I I think that if this election is decided, not because of Pennsylvania But because of where the electoral votes from Arizona and Nevada go, which is what Biden would need at this point to win, that's that would give him electoral college victory. If other states decide this election, I think theatre tension in Pennsylvania will fade. And even if the U. S Supreme Court overruled Pennsylvania's rule, it wouldn't change the outcome of the election. So I don't think, given the trend lines in the vote counting right now. I don't think it's likely that would come down to Pennsylvania. But if it does, it does come down to one legal challenge from one state. It's probably this one because of the huge number of votes that Pennsylvania received in the mail after Election Day. Former state attorney general Ron McKenna. Current electoral map on the New York Times website reads as follows. 2 53 for Joe Biden to 14 for Donald Trump. Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania. Still up in the air. The popular vote 72.2 million for Biden 68.4 for Trump is a 21. Oh, show boils. What's the difference between a heavy congestion day at an easy down the roads at.

Right. Turns in the motor cater prohibited. I it is very clear. Now, we think we understand why the the director of the secret service fella named Rowley is the first man who bounds up the steps at Andrews Air Force base to embrace new president Lyndon. Baines Johnson turns out Mr. rally is a is a former deputy Jaeger Hoover. And a man who got his first job in government from congressman Lyndon Baines Johnson. So attorney general Robert Kennedy stays under Lyndon Johnson. He must have hated that. Well, he staged very briefly. In essence Johnson makes nNcholas him back. The acting attorney general people often ask me is I've talked about my book the minute maid who killed Kennedy. Why Bobby didn't blow the whistle on this? And it's a very simple solution. Who would have believed him Johnson Controls the FBI Johnson Controls? The Dallas police Johnson has the year of the of the media the stories into his corruption are immediately spiked and never appear. Again, Robert Kennedy knew that the only way he could uncover the true murderer brother was by becoming president himself, and then controlling the federal machinery in essence Hoover controls, the clean up the cover up from the from the gecko. Tire investigation is done in five days, and he wraps up about. Now, the Warren commission is kind of forced to reach the same conclusions. That that the FBI has already reached in their published report. And America was never the same. Roger after that. We've never been the same. Have we? Well, it's it's it is a chain reaction of events. In other words, the the bay of pigs begets the Kennedy assassination. The the Kennedy the Kennedy assassination, begets Watergate. These are all interrelated L A events of history. And mean, this is why four of the Watergate burglars. Our president at the bay of pigs the same four who are in Dealey plaza. How incredibly convenient? These things don't happen by chance. Do they? So there I I believe they're all at this juncture completely interconnected. But my book is also a it's a portrait of Lyndon Johnson. Because he is nothing like the public image that he tries to portray. I mean, he is a he is a an abusive amoral crude vicious loud mouth bully. He is Popper of pills in a in a vicious drunk. He is a notorious womanizer he's a physical coward. He's a sadist. This is a man who conducts White House staff meetings while sitting on the toilet watch. And he and he did that not just to be crude, but he enjoyed the discomfort that it caused all these young Ivy league can the age that he had inherited surrounding him. I mean, it's it's really extrordinary. He was on the toilet in. These people were around him. Yes. She would he would he would conduct an actual meetings while he was defecating. You've gotta be kidding me. Roger Lyndon Johnson was a very crude fellow. And he is a notorious womanizer at one point there's at least five women in the secretarial pool. Of course Kennedy was to right now. I look I think it goes with the power profile. Look, I joined Eisenhower was getting a little on this. I'm beginning to think that comes with the now Reagan was pretty straight though. Well, yes, and no Reagan was married to Jane Wyman. And then after Jane Wyman, divorced him. He went on a tear in which he it virtually every great looking woman in Hollywood. The president then he was single point. And then when he when he meets Nancy Davis, and he gets married. I think he is forever. A faithful husband, but this guy Torry it up when he and his wild wild. I mean, Marilyn Monroe, Linda Turner, Betty Grable, you name it and. Got there. All right. Let's take some calls for the rest of the hour that we've got you here. Let's go to John in Sheridan, Wyoming to get things started, John. Go ahead. Thank you, George another great show. Thank you. If if you will permit me let me give three quick things that'll help Mr. stones when Bill Clinton in nineteen ninety four was president. He allowed Westinghouse to sell two nuclear reactors to North Korea from which they've been extracting blue Tonia and from which they've been making nuclear weapons the second item in a sixty minutes. CBS sixty minutes interview, just a few years ago, they were interviewing both Bill and Hillary and for whatever reason instead of on a soft. So they had him sitting on these high wooden barstools and in the middle of the interview a studio light exploded behind Bill and Hillary they both immediately leaped up their their feet. And I remember Hillary claims that she's battle-tested well when Hillary leapt to her. Feet. She screamed at the top of a voice Jesus Joseph, and Mary and then wild Bill was standing she jumped into his lap. And she was winding and shivering in crying and boo. Boo. Hoo. Like that like a walking through the cemetery at midnight. And the third item is when Hillary was working as an attorney they showed this. It's an audiotape. They played it on Fox News late last year, she knowingly acquitted a man who had raped a woman on a legal technicality. She got him acquitted, then she called her friend, and she was laughing about it and cackling about it that she had gotten her rapist client off the hook on a legal technicality and so much for the myth of Hillary being the women's candidate. Wow. To react to any of that. Well that last incident is very well covered in my book. She's absolutely absolutely right. You're absolutely right. She laughs about the fact that that her client passed a lie detector tests, which she says made her forever doubt, lie detector tests. So she knows he's guilty. This is this is a Hillary Clinton is nothing like her public image. She is a mean-spirited angry vicious loud. Mouth foul mouthed, short tempered, very greedy, very dominant. Very abrasive and abusive. She has a mouth on her like a sailor. This is something else that I have some of the greatest things in my book, most of them entail. The f word and she could end up being our president. If people knew the real Hillary, and her epic greed. I mean, look the Clinton foundation is not a charity. It's a slush fund for there's it's a vehicle for the facilitation of multi million dollar bribes. If you wanted to change in foreign policy, if you wanted to get rid of Qaddafi, or if you wanted the approval of an arms dealer, if you wanted to major defense contract matter what you wanted you could buy it from Bill and Hillary you had to grease the Clinton foundation, you had to Greece the Clintons personally in the form of these speech honorariums mean, Goldman Sachs, a build out Bank event that we bailed out with.

The attention of influential mines including president John F Kennedy in a televised address the president put it bluntly, quote, the heart of the question is whether all Americans are to be afforded, equal rights. Equal opportunities. Whether we are going to try. Beat our fellow Americans as we want to be treated, and quote, king rode that wave of enthusiasm to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC on August, twenty eighth nineteen sixty three the Reverend stood before a crowd of two hundred fifty thousand people stretching the length of the National Mall in delivered words that would reverberate through history. I have a dream. One day. This nation will rise up. Live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these twos to be self evident that all men are created. That moment that speech, solidified king is powerful voice for peace and Justice. But while the world applauded and incredibly powerful man saw something quite different. He saw threat to the established order this man had a vendetta and the means to make Martin Luther King junior's life, a waking nightmare. Coming up will look at Dr king's most formidable enemy, FBI director, j Edgar Hoover. Now back to the story. Gee, you're Hoover was a man who valued control. That's putting it mildly as the founding director of the Federal Bureau of investigation. Hoover. Ran his agency with the brutal officiency of a dictator. He was an institution unto himself in the nineteen sixties his dedication to hierarchical. Order put him at odds with the civil rights movement which sought to expand power to all the people. The main target of Hoover's suspicion was the increasingly public face of the movement, Martin Luther King junior. The public acrimony between the two men would become the stuff of legend it began in nineteen sixty three when Hoover secured authorization from attorney general Robert Kennedy to wiretap king this meant bugging his phone his office, and the many hotels he stayed in publicly president John F Kennedy supported the civil rights movement. But this show. Was that the FBI and the Kennedy administration viewed king as a potential threat to national security? They were particularly concerned that communists had infiltrated his ranks and what harness the civil rights movement as a mouthpiece for propaganda. But with the assassination of John F Kennedy and the ascendancy of his vice president Lyndon Johnson, the political landscape changed dramatically in Johnson. King had a direct line to the highest levels of government, though, the intimidating Texan president and the gentle preacher had their disagreements. They shared a common goal the passage of the historic Civil Rights Act their relationship along with kings, criticisms of the FBI's sluggish response to hate crimes presented further threats to Hoover's control never one to back away from a challenge. The grizzled FBI director went on the offensive one day after the Nobel committee announced its intention to. Award. Dr king the peace prize. Hoover took the rare step of holding a press conference in front of the press. He mounted a full throated defense of the bureau's record on civil rights. He said quote in spite of some remarkable success in civil rights cases, some detractors alleged the F B I had nothing to do in this field. And quote, if the assembled journalists thought they were meant to read between the lines Hoover quickly made his point clear he pressed on quote in view of kings, attitude and his continued criticism of the F B I on this point. I consider king to be the most notorious liar in the country, and quote, the shot had been fired. It would be followed by too far more insidious acts of intimidation. The I was an F B I wiretap recording which splice together audio of king having extramarital sex in hotel rooms in an effort to. Discredit king as a moral leader..
