Biden Calls Satchel Paige 'The Great Negro' in Latest Gaffe and Liberal Media Defends Him
"Think with the media would do if Donald Trump called a black man a Negro. Violating federal law incidentally, I mean, Obama signed a law in May of 2016 banning the word. We don't use the word Negro anymore, but obviously Joe Biden does. And what the media did to provide him cover is so comical. That it bears pointing out if you probably have heard it by now. There's a lot to get to today. It's Friday. We had a busy week. We're going to head into a busy weekend. This is a big breaking news day. You're not going to want to miss a second of today's Mike Gallagher's show 'cause we have a lot of great stuff planned for you. The Kyle rittenhouse trial is going to wind down early next week as it goes to the jury. There's only one reason that this jury would convict him. And we all know what that reason would be. We'll get to that in just a moment, but first in context, here's the 46th president of the United States on Veterans Day. You know, I've adopted the attitude of the great Negro at the time picture in the Negro leagues went on to become a great pitcher in the pros and Major League Baseball after Jackie Robinson. His name was satchel page. Now, we could probably assume he meant to say the great Negro league pitcher, maybe when he said that Barack Obama was clean, he didn't mean to say, like he was clean like he bathed, maybe he meant to say, has a clean record. When he said that you can go into any 7 11 and hear everybody talking with an Indian accent, maybe he didn't really mean Indian accent. I mean, you could give him a lot of, you know, cover, right? Because that's what the left does. When he said, you know, those Republicans want to put y'all back in chains. Maybe he didn't mean like literal chains, maybe even those little paper chains that our kids did in kindergarten. Because honest to goodness, the media sprung into action yesterday to defend
Barack Obama Continued to Spy on Trump Campaign Leading up to 2016 General Election
"One more clip It's a bit shorter from March 5 2017 Go How confident are you that this investigation which was on Russian so called Russian hacking but now The White House says this morning will be broadened to looking into executive overreach How many are you going to find something there I don't know but they already found something The issue isn't whether the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign or transition to a certain of its surrogates The issue is the extent of it They went into court a second time They were so aggressive They waited four or 5 months They go back in October weeks before the general election and by the way All of a sudden we now know they went in the court multiple times to get extensions Go ahead We have leaks coming out on Flynn Then we have a horrible meeting that took place between sessions and so forth And I'm telling you as a former chief of staff an attorney general of the United States in the Reagan administration these are police state tactics Now what did Barack Obama know You know everything I just read you part apart from one or two articles You know how I know It's in the newspapers It's right there So Barack Obama not only knew this but he gets a daily intelligence briefing And let me tell you something about daily intelligence briefings If you're attorney general And your FBI is going to the fisa court To get a warrant to investigate aspects of an opposition party in the middle of a general election campaign how much you want to bet the president of the United States knew that He didn't And we now know of course he did From the document said Radcliffe released last
At Least Obama Accepted Responsibility for His Failings. Biden? Not So Much
"I saw a clip of Barack Obama when president Obama was faced with the extraordinary Republican gains after ObamaCare was shoved down our throats. He took responsibility. I mean, he did. Now, he was he dodged it, and he kind of danced around it, but they played the clip last night. I'd love to see if we can find it Derek. Be a good clip to play to remind you of the stark difference between Obama and Biden. And understand, you remember how long it took Obama to even campaign for Biden? Oh, we have that clip? Oh, great. Play it. I'm sorry to know we had it. Listen to this. Over the last two years, we've made progress. But clearly, too many Americans haven't felt that progress yet. And they told us that yesterday. And as president, I take responsibility for that. I mean, that's an adult reaction. That's not Biden's way. Biden tend to Biden and take responsibility for anything. Biden yesterday was arguing with Peter douchey about the 450,000 per illegal that the Justice Department is working on for the illegals and Biden called it garbage. He wanted to defend that. He wanted to argue that this garbage stuff, you guys are putting out there. In his mind, maybe they didn't brief him. And he didn't know. I mean, he's so out of touch and the country knows it. And the country is saying, well, dare I say it? Let's go
The Truth About January 6th With Julie Kelly
"More on the January 6th events with Julie Kelly. Let's pull out a little bit from what we've been discussing the concrete cases, individuals who need cancer treatment who aren't being given the requisite medical attention people who are now delayed in their trial until May of next year. I mean, that is police state tactics. You say there's one place that's helping them some of the relatives have got a fan together at patriot freedom project dot com. That's patriot freedom project dot com. When it comes to January 6th, let's zoom out a little bit. The GOP give us your take on the GOP's response to all of this. Well, I mean, with a few exceptions, no one has said anything. You know, I watched that hearing with Merrick Garland, not one Republican senator, confronted Merrick Garland about what his DOJ has been doing to over 650 Americans. I appreciate what Tom cotton said to Merrick Garland. I appreciate that every Republican senator asked him about the letter that he allegedly wrote, which I'm not even sure that Merrick Garland is in charge of the Justice Department. He believe it's least the Monaco who is the deputy. It's really wrong in the show. We know that. But look, Lisa Monaco almost got a unanimous vote from Republicans in the U.S. Senate, including Tom cotton, they put a known Barack Obama loyalist, someone who was a collusion perpetrator who said nothing but horrible things about Donald Trump for four years in between allow his presidency and now Joe Biden's they confirmed her. Put her in charge of the Justice Department. What do they expect Lisa Monaco is going to do? Of course she's going to use every weapon at her disposal to go after
Obama Ripped For Slamming 'Phony Culture Wars' at McAuliffe Rally
"Welcome back to America first one on one with Andrew clavin. We have a pronouncement. He's back. I don't know why, but he's back the man who was the first black president of the United States is now an expert on culture and he has something to say about those rascally Republicans cut 7 play cuts. We don't have time. You might want to go to beep. Wasting on these phony trumped up culture wars. This fake outrage, the right wing media's pedals to juice their ratings. And the fact that he's willing to go along with it instead of talking about serious problems that actually affect serious people, that's a shame. Fake culture wars. That's Obama. Yesterday, the day before campaigning for one of the sleaziest objectively empirically one of the sleaziest Democrat politicians, Terry mccaul, sorry Terry mcauliffe. And he's saying it's invented. There is no culture war at all and I guess Donald Trump wasn't canceled on Twitter either. Let me give an example of how little a culture war there is. Yesterday, Wednesday, The Washington Post lead editorial cartoon is a delightful group of mothers sitting in somebody's living room with a grill a barbecue grill in the middle and they're burning books and The Washington Post calls this the mom's for liberty book club. Which side of the political aisle is kidding. It's banning books. On Amazon. And silencing speech, we're using the corporate, the power of corporations guided by the government, which is almost the definition of fascism. You know, he is so good. He's such a talented politician, Barack Obama. And the problem with him is that all of his philosophy is wrong. And so none of his policies work, so he became president at a time when the economy had crashed, and historically an economy that takes a nosedive will bounce up just as high just as fast. He sat on that economy with his stupid ObamaCare and his stupid policies. He was handed a piece in the Middle East. And he let loose ISIS in a war that took over a territory the sizable Ohio with terrorism and this wickedness that his exist in the Middle East. He failed at everything. And what did he do to take people's mind off his failure? Is he started a culture

Kelvin Cochran Reminisces About His Childhood Dream to Become a Firefighter
"So Kelvin Cochran, the new book is called facing the fire. The faith that brought America's far cheek through the flames of persecution talk about that. Were you raised in the faith? Did you grow up in the Atlanta area? No, I grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana, Eric, and then early 1960s. I was one of those American kids that had 5 years old. There was a fire across the alley that we lived in Shreveport, Louisiana, one Sunday after church. The Shreveport firefighters showed up. And when I watched those firefighters that day, Eric, I was smitten. And I looked at my mom and my brothers and sisters and said, I want to be a firefighter when I grow up. And we were taught as kids that in our country, if you believe in and have faith in God, go to school and get a good education that if we respect the grown-ups and treated other people like we want it to be treated that all of our dreams would come true. And that's the faith that was foundational to my whole life dreams and God used that those truths to make all of my dreams come true. That was back in the days before we all realized that white supremacy makes it impossible for somebody like you to accomplish anything. Here's how to get that in parenthetically. So somehow you because you believed in God because you believed in the American Dream, your dream came true. And I just want to say, you know, when I found out you were the fire chief of all of Atlanta. This is a huge city. You were commended by the president of the United States. Who was it at the time? I can't remember. President Barack Obama? Not ring any bells. Was he president? So you were commended by him. So you're at the top of your game in every
Andrea Mitchell Falsifies 2000 GOP Convention Memory About Colin Powell
"MRC news busters Kyle dren and Andrew Mitchell falsely claims the Republican Party booed palate to 2000 convention As news broke Monday morning of the passing of former Secretary of State and joint chiefs chairman Colin Powell and NBC's Today Show Adrian Mitchell jumped at the chance to exploit his death to bash Republicans But in her ghoulish rush to do so she got her facts wrong when she falsely claimed he was booed at the 2000 GOP national convention She said I was on the floor of the convention in 2000 and fled off and when Republicans booed him She even went so far as to argue that moment began the late general shift of the Democrat party years later She said but he just stood out from his Republican Party even back in 2000 at the convention for speaking up for black rights and eventually did endorse Barack Obama as you know Later on 12 p.m. MSNBC show Mitchell recalled what supposedly upset the GOP crowd She said I remember being on the floor of the convention the GOP convention in Philadelphia in 2000 He was booed from the floor because he spoke about affirmative action She declared again and that was the beginning of a public break you know internally for him with the Republican Party Mitchell then finally remembered quote and so the endorsement will meet the press with Tom broke on 2008 a Barack Obama the black candidate was such a momentous occasion in politics By the way I was at that convention And I don't remember any booing and I was right Despite Mitchell's unchallenged assertions about how being derided by Republicans in 2000 An examination of C-SPAN's coverage of the GOP convention that year does not show him being booed at all In fact during the passage of his speech dealing with affirmative action which Mitchell specifically cited only cheers and applause were heard The footage shown on screen displayed people on the convention floor celebrated pal speech Perhaps Mitchell heard a small smattering of booze from her spot in the convention hall while covering the event
Terry McAuliffe Struggles to Shore up Democrat Base
"We've got a couple of minutes here to talk about what's going on in the gubernatorial race in Virginia, where Glen youngkin is going up against former governor Terry mcauliffe and, you know, this is an interesting race. It's remained close. I intending to think I'm a little optimistic about this, but of course, Virginia is a fairly blue state these days. Cam you're a virginian. What's going on there? It does young can have a chance here. Yes, I think you can absolutely have this chance. I think the Democrats are very, very concerned. As you say, Virginia has been trending blue, but this is about as optimal a scenario for Republicans as you can find. Democrats have nominated. I think a pretty unpopular guy and certainly a very uninspiring candidate who is not being helped by Joe Biden is dragging him down. Like all of even said that by design popular in Virginia and yet Biden is going to be coming to campaign with Terry mccoll between now and election day. But, you know, Miguel has also bringing in Barack Obama. He's bringing in Stacey Abrams to campaign for him Ed, which tells me that was less than three weeks now before election day. McCollum is still worried about shoring up his base, he's not even hoping right now to try to attract those moderate or independent voters. He's still trying to get black Democrats in Virginia to show up and vote for him because there's a third party candidate on the ballot for instance blanding. Who is running as deliberation party candidates is the first black female to be on the ballot for governor in Virginia. She is very strongly connected to the social justice movement. She's running to the call of left. And I think the mcauliffe is absolutely terrified that she's been able to peel away three four maybe even 5% of the vote both that would have gone to him. And that may be enough, along with what I think has been a pretty good campaign run by when young that might be enough to put junk in an office.
Biden Special Envoy Warns US Must 'Prepare' for Fully Nuclear Iran
"States. Doctor oran, welcome back great to talk to you again, sir. Good to talk to you. Big story coming from the Washington free Beacon. I know that this is something that's gotten a lot of attention in Israel has gotten next to none here in the United States. Adam credo reporting yesterday that U.S. Iran envoy Robert malley, whose name is very familiar to those of us who follow these things, says that the Biden administration is preparing for, quote, a world where Iran doesn't have constraints on its nuclear program. Comments that show how little progress has been made in negotiation with Tehran regarding a return to the JCPOA the 2015 Barack Obama ran deal. Doctor Oren, I mean, if that deal had remained in place, we'd still be dealing with in Iran didn't have any constraints on its nuclear weapons program. I mean, I think that that's one thing that should be said right off the bat. That deal wasn't going to prevent Iran from creating nuclear weapons. It only it only had a ten year pause in it, maybe. And that's only if you believed Iran was complying with it. Yes, that's true. It was ultimately going to his line was ultimately going to have an unlimited nuclear program. The big difference was that while it restrained itself somewhat, and some aspects of the program, just on the nuclear enrichment, not a missile development, not on the development of advanced centrifuges, not on developer warheads, didn't do anything about any of that. But when I was going to get paid a 100 billions of dollars that it wasn't going to spend on schools and hospitals, you can believe that. I think the major thing that rob valley is saying, believe it or not is the truth and the truth that has been around for a long time. I've been talking about on these really news. And that is the United States is willing to coexist with an Iran that has threshold capacity. I mean, the ability is created a bomb within a matter of weeks, because you've been a matter of days. Among the professionals, if referred to as Japan like capabilities, there's Japan has that capability, but of course, you can't threaten to wipe anybody off the map or is not supporting financial payers.

US Rep. John Yarmuth to Retire From Congress
"Biggest news story yesterday that you don't know is a huge news story is this. John yarmouth is quitting. Now you don't know who congressman John yarmouth is, and thus you happen to be listening to me in Kentucky. He is represented Louisville for a long time. And he is quitting. He is also the chairman of the budget. Committee. So he actually had a big job. Why is he quitting? Because there is a tsunami coming. The Democrats have gotten everybody mad at them in record time. Joe Biden's numbers are slipping under the 44% approval number. The big news yesterday is that Terry mcauliffe is going down with the Biden ship, reached out desperately and asked, you know, he has to come campaign for him. Not the president of the United States. The former president of the United States Barack Obama. Barack Obama is going to show up, but I hate to break it the Democrats, you still like him I know, but he's not the crowd generator and he's not the enthusiasm manufacturer that he used to be, and you can't stop people like John yarmouth from saying, I'm done here. And you know why the Democrats are not quitting? All the Democrats in Congress are saying, no Mas no Mas. It's not just because of redistricting and Joe Biden's unpopularity. They all need a job when they lose. In the 2010 election. After the ObamaCare fiasco, which is not as big as the fiasco of the Biden spending. It's one third the fiasco of the bidens. When the American people don't like to spend money they don't have money that they're borrowing. You have any Democrats lost in 2010, 63. 63. That meant 63 Democrats looking for jobs in Washington D.C. and John yarmouth is smart and says, you know, I'm going to go find a job before I lose. I'm not going to get bailed out of time with everybody else on a red tide. I'm getting out of here. So that's a tell.

The Biden Regime Attempts to Break the Bond Between Parents and Children
"Know that the state the regime is trying to break the bond between parents and children that parents concern and questioning of the indoctrination of their kids is now being met with a full fledged response from the state. We can keep on building that out as we dive deeper into that as we build out all the specifics there but instead i want to tell you what's really going on here and it's really fun kind of going back and forth with the great one mark levin on this because we saw it exactly the same. This is a preempt a preemptive move by the regime to try and stop any sort of semblance of a legitimate and authentic tea party two point. Oh movement the tea party back. In two thousand nine two thousand ten was a legitimate grassroots response to the massive overreach of the obama regime. The tea party movement could not be controlled. Many members of congress were elected in the tea party movement. That are still in congress. Today including marco rubio and many others democrats were largely displaced from power and republicans. Look back the house for the first time in many years and did so decisively against the popularity and the power of barack obama one of the reasons why the left has been so forceful in their propaganda and their prosecution of january six. Is they want to try to keep people at home.
The Two Key Democrats Whose Votes Could Decide the Fate of Biden’s Agenda
"Care cinema was summoned to the oval office. Three times yesterday binds. Working are over there working these two democrats over big time. The pressure is enormous on them. Dick durbin from illinois sending out a message. Make your mark mansion understand cinema where one heartbeat away from losing the majority. It all comes down to you guys holding true to our socialist principles. I think we've shown a lot of respect to our colleagues who obviously have a different point of view when it comes to reconciliation. There's been meaningful negotiation. It's gone on for weeks. The president has been involved. Personally i've never seen a president engaged in this way. Since barack obama's days with the affordable care act so we're all in all aboard. Now it's time. I would say for both senators. Make your mark and close the deal. What is it that you want. What is your final goal. It's time to stop talking around it and speak directly to it. Here we go. The arm twisting is underway. Get the popcorn out. But i still think it's an a gigantic bluff. Democrats are going to democrat. They're going to unify and eos. C can be weeping crocodile tears and that disgusting rashida to leave shriek yell and belo and they can all stomp around. They're going to unify and we're going to be in a lot of trouble.

"I'm amanda dobbins took off. Because amanda went on vacation and now we're back to talk about many birthdays including you first happy. Belated so much. Yes i. I went on vacation for my birthday instead of posting an extended multimedia presentation on the internet and or hosting a giant party at my home on his maker though in the latter case. It's only because. I do not own a home on. Martha's vineyard if you did you would you would. Oh my god. There's so many things about barack obama's sixtieth birthday that we're going to discuss. We are also going to discuss. Roger federer's fortieth nagging marcos fortieth ambience as upcoming forty s. There's so many birthdays yes How's it feel to be in the same sign is all these people probably except yeah beyond virgo. But we're we're putting her into this birthday week because she's on the cover of harper's bazaar in basically celebration of her fortieth birthday is the that's the peg and she's speaking about what she wants for her her her fortieth year her fourth decade so accounts as milestone birthday. And it's milestone birthday her fifth decade for. Yes thank you. i'm i'm really not good. Accounting can question. Yeah do do you think we're getting all this birthday content because of the absence of other events and like other things happening so i wanna start this podcast up off with theory we've found for the most part find celebrities aftershock about but right now in this moment unless it's your birthday unless there's like a chronological calendar oriented reason for you to be in the news and we'll talk about it if you are in the news right now. You're losing he's like this. Is the silly season. This is the worst time this is suckers only in the celebrity space and things are gonna go bad really quickly like if you are a celebrity really any type of person but certainly a celebrity. And it's really. I would say all of august's you need to go on vacation. You need to not be in the headlines because otherwise it is a a wasteland and there's nothing positive happening and people are mad to be even matter than usual to be on the internet and whatever you're trying to spin is going to go really really wrong it just is gonna go terribly if is like you know what august there's an opening like maybe we'll get extra attention thiry publicists. Your publicist doesn't know what's going on. You got to stay out of the news. So i guess these people are doing us a favor because we need content and things talk about and also it is leo season. I'm a fan of season. I really like you know everyone involved in this. What are what are the hallmarks of eleo itself involvement. And i i i i actually. I don't really know. Besides me being told regularly that i am very much. Leo is interesting situations. That seem to insinuate that it has something to do with making it all about you Which i guess is another theme of all of these birthday celebrations including beyond say who's a virgo and reverence is being a virgo interview. And i think a sign of being a leo is not having any idea what any of the other signs me and so i have no idea what it means for virgo but she i don't either i don't know i don't know what any signed means is that i am on the cusp of aquarius pisces. That's all i know. i'm aquarius though.

It's still seem like there. Were quite a few people. There was a part of the daily mail a really bad traffic jam and additionally There were some illicit photos and videos that made their way out of the event due to air kobe.

Land forty fourth president of the united states and father to sasha and malia barack obama people. Thank you for joining us as you can see Brother president. I put on a nice sweater jacket pocket square so that my momma won't be disappointed. I just wanted to make sure that. I'm pressed my mother today. Run i think you look sharp Your momma would be proud. I notice all the other bands though with me going low casual not trying to sit on put on a front the way you are with and all that so but that's fine you're the host your professional media guy you've got you've got to keep up fair enough well speaking of the dass.

They're playing quietly in another room right now Thank you for being here. Say hello to the president. Mr president president was good to see all of it. Although i had to say i am exhausted. Just hear your biographies. It's been bringing back flashbacks of sleepless nights stepping on toys. But that's why we have you here to get ourselves a little bit of advice from one of the most prominent data me history of the country. mr president. First thing i would like to do though is began with a quote from your book in a promised land. You said quote every parent's sabres such moments when the world slows down. And all that matters is that you are present fully to witness the miracle of your child growing up. Could you expand on that just a little. I was describing what it was like. Just coaching sasha's basque rec league basketball team when she was seven or eight even in the midst of the presidency. And and just the sheer joy that that would bring and wishing that I've maybe planned. So that i had more of that and maybe a little less of meetings in the situation room. Although it's an extreme example. I think all of us as parents and as fathers are struggling with and trying to figure out the fact that the single most important thing in our lives. Are these little people who Are dependent on us and Were teaching and bringing us joy. And they're teaching us about ourselves but we also got work to make eleven Gotta hit deadlines sometimes have to travel and so often that. Hold the way we organize schedule. Our lives Prevents us from being there as much. As we'd like the way you're able to multitask during during that eight years. You know you're the president yet to be a husband. You have to work on your jump shots you have to steal somehow. Find time for your kids as well like we. You're juggling so many things how you always able to make sure that you were there and always fully present not just physically but mentally when i was campaigning for the presidency Or when i was in the. Us senate night a commute back and forth between washington and chicago. The issue for me was just being physically present. How did i managed. I managed that. Because i have extrordinary partner who was just a great mom and was Carrying the burden the lion's share of the day to day megan sure the bay where the pediatrician's appointment and making sure that you know the ballet tights fit right for the dance recital and all that and i'd show up at the dance recital but i didn't. I wasn't komen their hair. There was one time where. I tried to call me hair. And michelle is away for a weekend and It's he or she was four or five at the time and when we got to the the dance studio one of one of michelle's spreads another parent came up and whispered the lynn. Do you want me to redo your hair and in malaysia. Who had said it was fine. She's all like yes please. This is a disaster. And i overheard her and i i was i realized man. I'm not well equipped here. So once i was in the presidency as i described The the great good fortune was suddenly. Everybody came to me. I had no commute is literally walking down the stairs and walking down the colony and i didn't have big up my dry cleaning right so suddenly me being home for dinner every night at six thirty a. Even if i had to go back to the office afterwards those kinds of things made a huge difference. I was fortunate. The the shifting of the perspective in terms of me being all in that wasn't as hard partly just because i it was such a a an amazing break to not be thinking about terrorism or a wildfire and. Just sit there at the dinner table. Listening the the talk about knucklehead boys and the teacher with the weird haircut. Yeah i it was like You know just a a vacation. Every time i spent time with. Let's go to chris and peter. Now tartlets wins a six year old. How much chaos does that generate in the house. Do you think it's gaydos chris. Total chaos chaos Juggling work in home Actually i a lot of times feel guilty. Because when i go to work it's a little bit of an escape and that's saying a lot when you work at a cancer hospital do things. We really have. Larger patient is so important and also snacks and snacks. Maps and snacks. Highly underrated time most the time when kids kids are acting up there either tired and can admit it or they're hungry.

Two german uniforms from hitler's army in the movie like it was actual real uniforms. They had some of those in the actual movie. I could tell you that manila. I'll tell you this one instead in one scene when they were in the blimp harrison. Ford and sean connery thought it was particularly hot in the blimp so they did all of their scenes only wearing clothes from the waist up. Yeah they they were basically in their skivvies. They're wearing their underwear. It was off camera so everything was cool. And i mean come on. We can't get upset about this because we've all been doing it on zoom for about the last year and a half here all right in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety. Three kim basinger filed for bankruptcy. On this day okay. So how did this all go down. She was cast in a movie called boxing elena but after agreeing to be in the movie she decided to back out. The producers then decided to sue her for over eight million dollars. She declared bankruptcy on this day to avoid paying the settlement. Okay two years prior to has. Kim you might remember along with an investment group. Bought a town in georgia. It had a bank at fifty or so buildings in about seventeen hundred acres as she wanted to turn it into a movie studio. Those plans did not pan out in one thousand nine hundred five. The property was resold for a loss. Now of course. Georgia has a bunch of movie studios now things to tyler perry and some others putting together. These movie studios. I guess she was a little ahead of time on this idea. By the way the town it seems to be growing so it have been investment. That maybe she should have hang hung onto because back. Then it only had a few hundred people now There's about eleven thousand people there just last week. It was announced that a new auto manufacturing facility is headed for the town as for cam. Lets she up to well. She's kind of stood out of the spotlight in recent years and she is spending most of her time with animal groups as a side note to anada boxing elena movie madonna did the same thing. She was cast in the role and backed out of it. The movie was a flop. Both critically and financially. So i guess. Kim and madonna both made a good decision in not being in that movie on this day. In twenty eleven okay. This is a fun. One that i found and it's not exactly what happened on this day. But i'll i'll give you this story so on this day in two thousand eleven on his visit to the united kingdom. President barack obama met queen elizabeth and prince philip duke of edinburgh. Okay they totally hit it off. They you know everything went great. She said some great things. She said he was one of the nicest people that she's met. Things like that on a on a visit Barack obama decided to do a toast to the queen and when he started his toes he had said something where the band actually thought. It was a cue to start playing. God save the queen so they started playing the music during his toast that he was giving. So you've got this really awkward situation. Where barack obama is talking and the band is still playing which is totally no even here in the states. You know you don't talk over the national anthem. You don't do that.

Um, I I, uh I pulled one cliff, which I do want to play. Um, it's actually from the episode about lockdown. Um so you you kind of know over headed here. You don't have a record a few years ago, we broadcasted this year for obvious reasons. Um, but first before we listen to clip I think people need to know what a lockdown is, Um, in the present context. Lockdown is when there is no movement none. You're stuck in your cell. It could be up to 72 hours. You know, Until this time to shower, they would bring you everything to you to bring your graphics to you and Aggie lunch at that time. Bring you dinner. Um, and you don't like to say you only technically. I will say aloud, but you're committed to shower every 72 hours when you're in the lockdown situation, So you're you're 24 hours in yourself. But what? I just want to clarify it could go on for months. It could go on Just my luck. Years. Yes, on bits, just like it's a trip. You know the resilience of the human Spirit is just you just learned to adapt to the situation And that's all I could say. Because you've got people that spin in solitary confinement for like 40 something years? No, you said Yeah, that's actually I feel like this clip speaks so directly to even have how resilient people are. That's why will you be here? This clip? So if you could play that clip, uh, that would be great. We could listen to it. Myself, You know he had to sweat shirts. This is J.

"barack obama" Discussed on Black History in Two Minutes
"I Barack Hussein Obama do solemnly swear Barack Obama's inauguration as president of the United States was add a few of us believe we would ever see our lifetimes and a success seem to Mark a profound change in the history of America's tortured racial politics. Very few people would ever heard of Barack Obama when he gave a keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention. I remember thinking who is this guy? He was so exciting and charismatic and put forward a vision of America that could excite all of us across rates. There is not a Black America and a white America and Latino America and Asia in America. There's the United States of America. Barack Obama was offering the country who kind of aspirational vision of what it could be and it proved to be politically very very powerful despite the enormous excitement that agreed it's across the nation when the first-term senator announced his candidacy for president. It's struck many as an exceedingly long shot. There was a lot of hesitation in terms of whether or not a black candidate could win the presidency and whether or not voting for him would be in effect throwing away a vote those presidential campaign focused largely on issues other than race Senator Obama felt compelled to address the subject after an inflammatory video surfaced quoting has passed her the Reverend Jeremiah right out of context. With his presidential prospects in dire Jeopardy Obama confronted the issue directly with a brilliantly wrought and deeply personal speech icon more disown him than I can disown my white grandmother a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed her by on the street. I think the fact that Barack Obama had grown up in a household where he did not have first-hand experience with you know, relatives who had gone through a Litany of Horrors that is in you know, the history of black people in this country meant that he had a perspective on Race that very few African Americans in this country have we may have different stories but we home, and hopes we may not look the same and may not have come from the same place. But we all want to move in the same direction towards a better future for our children wage. Our grandchildren African Americans who saw the speech and said, oh, okay. He understands where we're coming from and they will white people who will flood speech and certainly understands that I'm not a racist even if I have these idea that people might think are unpopular about race. That was the masterstroke of that speech. Obama's unifying message resonated with voters across the country on November 4th 2008. They elected him the first African American president of the United States of America. We got the idea that there is a black president that black children off the black people can go out and say there's somebody that looks like me in the White House and not just Obama Michelle Obama their children that there is a family that looks like me in the White House is huge..

"barack obama" Discussed on News Talk 1130 WISN
"That Barack Obama was involved in the get go what does that mean for him what does it mean for Biden with all the talk about okay impeaching trump and getting trump to answer questions it sounds to me like they're an awful lot of questions Barack Obama now has to answer for well I think they were there yes I think that's right now I think he should have been and they had to answer them all along this is the kind of thing that could not have happened unless he was aware of it and green lighted it and show it just it just to turn it around what do you think the media and the Democrats would say if it turned out that the FBI currently was doing counterintelligence investigations and president trump was unaware of them they would make that into the biggest you know case that that trump was incompetent that you could imagine and that's exactly what they would say and they would say precisely because everybody knows that these intelligence operations are done so that the president can do his job so of course they're involved in them how much it's going to have consequences for Obama and Biden how much they're going to be pressed on this really depends on how how much of an impression what happened here made makes on the country I like you happen to think it's a big deal when the incumbent administration exploits the counter intelligence and law enforcement apparatus of the government in a political campaign against the opposition candidate to me that's a pretty big scandal so it's all right for the country doesn't seem to see it the way we see it we we well I don't know the rest of the country been aware the rest of the country been fed by a mob mentality the media's only one part of the story and the main story in the narrative in the where we actually have real evidence real Russia collusion a really raked investigation a real abuse of power the real intelligence the powerful tools of intelligence turned on the American people you know that's all going to be proven real John Solomon's on for an hour yesterday and the and you know we have a slight disagreement we know we're going to have the Horowitz report on call me which we've been talking about likely today tonight or soon and we know that we that there was a referral for potential prosecution in that case and he also showed a lack of candor yeah those documents that were classified in this house that FBI agents retrieved a month after his fire that's that would be one investigation then of course the vise investigation after multiple warnings we know there was premeditated fraud committed on a FISA court on four separate occasions those warrants were signed and everybody had been warned that the bulk of information used in the application is unfair of unverifiable we now know ninety plus percent of it to be outright lies call me sign three of them but more importantly they were worn by Bruce store and Kathleen calve like that still had an agenda Hillary paid for it that was not brought to the attention of these judges in any fashion that it should have been brought to their attention is that a crime premeditated fraud to obtain a warrant to spine an opposition party candidate than a transition team that a president shot I think it's a profound I we we've done this before I know but we I think it's a profound abuse of power to my mind an abuse of power in many ways is a lot more important than whether happens to violate the provision of title eighteen I think the fraud cases are very hard to make beyond a reasonable doubt when you're dealing with people who have a lot of ability under the law to exercise discretion whether they've abuse their discretion is a lot easier proven to me it's a lot more consequential but you know I think whether it's a crime or it's not a crime it's still an abuse of power and people have to be held to account for it yeah okay so do you see crimes do you see what I see that there was a rigged investigation in the Hillary case to protect her when the evidence was overwhelming and incontrovertible on the espionage act and the destruction of evidence subpoenaed emails and the bleach but not hammers do you see that there was a premeditated brought on a FISA court and there were two separate well John thinks is going to be another report that would deal with the leaking of classified information by heart what's when I see something deeper merging and that would be maybe a a bar Dora Moore dorm reporter something there of that will have exposure of those people that outsourced intelligence gathering to spy on American citizens are using our western allies to do it all in an attempt to circumvent American laws which I think would be the biggest abuse of power part of this some of all yeah look at that stuff gets proved I agree with you and the reason I well when you say get approved don't you think we can talk about this is because now I think it's pretty important and I do think it's a pretty spectacular piece of power you have to parse out join the the different things you said the one that really grabs your attention I think is the fraud on the FISA court because if they made knowing misrepresentations to the five court than people what a hang over that and that is a crime that you know that lying to a court as a crime two things if I if I lied to accord to the court yes if I committed a fraud on the court when I go to jail in the McCarthy if I was prosecuting you you would know and if I showed a lack of candor I would be treated like Papadopoulos man afford and cold but not the way call me and Clinton are being treated well you know the I. B. lactic candor with the reason they bounced McKay badly F. B. I. right and on and I don't think that the clothes chapter by the way I think you know they're gonna wait till they finish all of these investigations and then they're going to decide what is the proof of false statements that they have and at that point I think they'll make an evaluation about whether pursued criminally or not I'd stay right there are great book just.
