Kurt Schlichter and Eric Discuss the Problem With Deep State RINOs

"I have to say, the cynicism of what we now know as rhinos, deep state rhinos, George Bush, the first and others. They were not interested in bringing these I mean, you have to realize these people themselves in their quiet way were anti American founders. When you think of George Bush senior and that ilk, they were not excited about liberty and Ben Franklin and George Washington, whatever they were excited about the status quo. And it is heartbreaking to me, frankly, it is heartbreaking to me to think that they had this kind of cowardly view that they were not really interested in paying the price necessary to bring the freedoms that we have to others around the world. We are where we are because of them. And I voted for some of them. Well, so did I and there are a bunch of votes I'd like to take back. But rarely has, I mean, go back to go back to Roman times, which I do in the book will be back the fall and rise of America. And you'll see what happens when you have a great power whose elite becomes so corrupt and inept. And unaccompanied. I mean, really, these are unaccomplished people. We are being ruled by people who really have never done it. I mean, look at Liz Cheney. Liz Cheney would be a annoying middle school librarian telling happy kids to use their inside voice and going home and drowning her sorrows on screw top Chardonnay from Trader Joe's every night. If her father hadn't hitched his wagon to the bushes.

Extreme Athlete Tom Jones Is Running 76 Marathons for a Cause

"I'm not making this up. He's my guest right now. Tom Jones, welcome to the Erik metaxas show. Hey Eric, thanks for having me on. Look, I want to ask you so many questions. First of all, the principal reason I'm having you on is because you are going to be doing something fairly shortly along the lines you just described. What is this thing that you're going to be doing soon? Actually, I'm almost right in the middle of it. I've run 30 back to back marathons as we speak in the middle of it now. Yes, yes, we left April 19th from montevallo, Alabama, and I've been running a marathon a day every day since then, including today. A marathon a day, okay, that's not something I've ever done, even for a single day. So what you're doing right now, it's affiliated with united we pledge. What is united we pledge? Because I know your goal is to draw awareness to the constitution to American freedom. What is united we pledge? The united we pledge is a nonprofit organization and what they're doing is they're building a very special and magical place called the American village. And the American village is a place that has recreations exact replica recreations of buildings that were instrumental in the constitution and the Revolutionary War. And they also have people that play the parts of people that were instrumental in that time, like George Washington, Ben Franklin, Paul Revere, Paul Revere's wife, men and women, they have colonial soldiers. And what they do is they bring in families and in particular kids, and they let them step onto the stage of American history and become part of the story. So it's a very, very impactful experience as far as history goes.

"ben franklin" Discussed on Squawk Pod

"CNBC where Joe, Becky and Andrew are talking about, well, here's a big idea. The origins of modern America. Last night, a two part documentary on Benjamin Franklin premiered on PBS. It follows the founding father's multifaceted complicated life and his role in building America. Joining us right now is Ken burns. He's the documentary filmmaker behind this and so many other biographical films that we've all loved over the years. Also, Walter isaacson, an adviser on this project, and an adviser advisory partner at perella Weinberg, also a CNBC contributor. And gentlemen, welcome, we spent the entire commercial break talking about this beforehand. I think we're going to spend the breaks after this talking about this because Benjamin Franklin is one of the most fascinating subjects on the planet and as much as you know about him, it's never enough. You think of all the things he did from being a diplomat from being a founding father, signing the Declaration of Independence. And the constitution, a scientist and inventor, a writer, he created the first public library, he founded UPenn. I could go on and on and on, but Walter, why don't you jump in because you know so much about him, why you focused on him, what you found most amazing, and have you ever found another person like him? No, not at all. I think that the reason gin Barnes and I wanted to do this is that he's a founding father. We most need right now. He's the most inventive of the founding fathers. He understands how to technology to the humanities, but also to business. And, you know, like an Elon Musk, you know, he wants that edit button. He was a printer who liked figuring out the era, changing things, saying of his own life. Here's the mistakes I've made in my life. And here's how I'm going to correct by mistakes. So that notion of being innovative, middle class, inventor who becomes the most successful American in so many fields and like Leonardo da Vinci, he wants to know everything you could possibly know about everything knowable. So I think he's an inspiration for our time to give us not just confidence as a nation, but a little bit of humility too to say and how can we make ourselves better. He was always fighting for self improvement. Hey, Ken, all those things I listed. I left off things like he created a volunteer fire department. He created discovered electricity and found a way to find all of these things. What were the most striking things that you walked away with after studying him more in depth? Well, as you say, the list could go on and on and on and on. I love him. I think Walter is exactly right. He's the greatest diplomat in American history, know him, know us. If he hasn't delivered the French support for our revolution, then there's no victory at Yorktown. He also negotiates the Treaty of Paris, which is the most lopsided treaty in our history with Great Britain. And gives us our complete detachment from Britain. I think the most important thing for this morning, Becky is that this guy is on the $100 bill, right? The largest bill and sort of general circulation. Everybody wants more benjamins. But it's only kind of half it. He is the model of pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, doing well, doing for self. But as Walter said, he tethered that to self improvement, but he also tethered it to civic participation. So nothing was ever done. All of his inventions were held without patent. So there's no comparison to the Titans of today. He could have been exponentially more wealthy than he was when he retired in his 40s to pursue his scientific. And I would say civic engagement with things, even more than he already had. That's the important thing. He understands that there's exquisite tension between what I want the sort of classic American freedom and what we need. He died after all in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, not the state of Pennsylvania. Right. And to that point, maybe for our audience, Walter, one of the most important things the most important lessons he gave away would be something like just lessons on compound interest. The idea that he bequeathed funds to both the states of I'm sorry, the cities of Boston and Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, and those funds went on and on and on for hundreds of years. I don't know all the details on it. Maybe one of the two of you could expand a little. Yeah, no, he loved the notion of compound interest and of giving back. He knew that he had been an indentured apprentice to his brother's print shop. So he sets up a fund in both Boston and Philadelphia in which he's going to give small loans. Like we do at idea village here in New Orleans to entrepreneurs who want to get started, but it's a revolving loan fund with interest so that they pay it back and he calculates after a hundred years it will be worth this and a hundred more years will be worth that. And indeed, it does turn out to be and Ken and I have discussed how take one in Philadelphia where they still are using this fund and some of the kids in west Philadelphia used it to do things that Franklin would have loved like build an electric car, a solar powered electric car. This is, of course, right in the line of Benjamin Franklin, who invents the concept of a battery who knows how to tame electricity. And so this revolving fund keeps helping young tradesmen and inventors and entrepreneurs. And it's still doing so to today. So it's a living legacy of what Ben Franklin was all about helping young people start businesses. Yeah, Becky, I was on, I was on with some folks from Boston from the Boston Franklin institute. And I was looking at a young Benjamin Franklin. These first generation second generation immigrants, kids from lower middle class, minority students, they all had that fresh, hungry, look in their eyes. They were definitely going places. And for them to see the film and get connected to their benefactor of 250 years ago, was an amazing thing. And for me, I just wanted to cry because here was one aspect of the American Dream that we would we're tethered to each other that were responsible for bringing our the rest of us up. And that was Franklin's motto as well. That we had to do for herself. We had to self improve. It was important to work hard, but it was also important to give back to the community. Hey, Walter, you hear all of these things. What he did just in terms of negotiating and diplomacy and his lessons and civic. And I can't think of anybody who really lives up to what he was doing. But I will say, when you look at somebody like Elon Musk, who you are writing a book about right now, look, you had PayPal. You have Tesla. You have SpaceX. Now this new foray into Twitter and trying to figure out how to deal with the public speech and issues that go around that town square how would you just rate what Elon is doing and some of the moves that he's made? I'm not going to compare him directly to Ben frankly. I know that Elon Musk loves Benjamin Franklin and he is an inventor in things that are difficult, physical objects, Elon Musk, as was Franklin. This notion is not just creating Facebook page which you can do in a dorm or a search engine you can do in a garage. He's inventing things like batteries as well as spaceships. And this would very much appeal to Benjamin Franklin, who felt that.

The Truth About Thomas Jefferson

"Thomas Jefferson was one of the most incredible men ever to live in the history of the planet. He was a statesman, he was a president, he was he was a civilization changer. He's the author and was the author of the Declaration of Independence. Now we must understand the beauty of the declaration independence. When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary, for one people, to dissolve the political bands with another. Deriving from the powers of the earth the equal and separate station. I'm going from memory here, so I might be bouncing around. And it goes on to say the laws of nature and nature's God. Thomas Jefferson was able to connect the fruits of the enlightenment and the roots of antiquity. Thomas Jefferson did that. Thomas Jefferson connected the fruits that came out of the ideas of freedom of speech and consciousness and self government, separation of powers checks and balances. But he did not go only and merely towards the enlightenment as if Machiavelli, what Machiavelli or Rousseau or Hume would have done. Jefferson instead struck a balance. Jefferson understood that there was a new type of thinking that was derived from the ancient. And then if we forget the ancient and go too far into this new way of government, it will collapse, but if we go to into the ancient, there's no claim to challenge the monarchy. Thomas Jefferson being a brilliant man wrote the words that we hold these truths to be self evident. That all men are created equal amongst these are life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, originally, it was property. Now the exact reason why they're getting rid of Thomas Jefferson I don't know their exact reasons because he owns slaves. Is that what it was? Do you know that Thomas Jefferson actually worked to abolish slavery when he was governor of Virginia in the 1790s? Do you know that Thomas Jefferson heavily influenced by George Mason who wrote the Virginia declaration of rights? In 1776, argued for slavery to be ended do you know that Thomas Jefferson who, of course, wrote the declaration, inspired the first state to abolish slavery in 1777 Vermont? Did you know that Thomas Jefferson was partners with Ben Franklin for the first ever abolition convention? Held in 1775 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Do you know that Thomas Jefferson was the first president to sign a moratorium saying that no new slaves were allowed to come into the United States? Thomas Jefferson was a good

Should Discussions of Race Make It Into Our School Curriculum?

"Only thing i'm saying is when you're teaching history to a bunch of kids you know you have to teach at all at least you have to teach the basic pointers and for black americans. The history of this country has been less than favourable. So i think that in the context of that discussion saying and to this day. We still have some problems with race. There are some legacies of slavery that still affect black people working on it today. Something like that. That's a kind of racial ization that i'm in favor of because it doesn't encourage stereotyping. It doesn't encourage discrimination. It just encourages a base awareness of some serious problems. So but that's not happening right. Is that largely what we're seeing through school districts like chicago And in washington. Dc and the entire california school system representing ten thousand schools and six million student. I've seen the of documents on those. Yeah it is that it. It doesn't have that kind of nuance and complexity that you just present right where it's eight. Let me just say this has that part of the kind of ark angel triumphant of the woke ism. Coalition is nicole. Hannah jones robin diangelo. Mex- and nicole hannah jones in particular right the author of the sixteen nineteen project She heretical says that america was founded on slavery. Right and so part okay with that but it's just not true. Depends on what you mean by found this. She defines this. She says the founding fathers were in favorite not true. George washington wasn't john adams wasn't john quincy. Adams wasn't thomas jefferson even signed a moratorium new slaves coming into the united states ben franklin chair and anti-slavery convention in seventeen seventy five. None of these guys were writing x. Positionally how wonderful slavery. This isn't being taught to third graders sixteen nineteen projects little new york op. Ed and you know it's not a see that's where you're wrong. The sixty nineteen projects being implemented at school district curriculum in thousands of school districts across grew. Cross it's not just like a podcast. This curriculum there are principles of the sixteen nineteen project that i think are defensible. First of all we as americans tend to think of the founding of our country as its legal founding. You know but the legal. Founding of the united states didn't really mean much for a slave.

"Know. You probably shouldn't be eating as much. It's so good wells out. What reason not to love it. yeah. I'm just i'm just partial for that though. I love jesus on anything so the next question. I'm the most excited of year. And that is what i call. Give us the local tour. You have friends come in from out of town you gotta show a good time. You only have a weekend to do it. Where in philadelphia are you gonna take them. What are you going to avoid. What are you gonna skip and What are you go to spots. What do you think is like the john from philadelphia. Must do last where you're gonna want museums. Are you going to hit. What places are you going to eat. One of their cool experiences do you have for them. This is where i probably could like. We can talk for three hours. And i still covered everything. Think but basically i would Say people get in like on a thursday night and do a truth. Three day weekend of like friday through sunday. What am i gonna do. I is. We're going to start in the morning very early at At like a nice coffee or pastry shop much like the place we were at. It's called ec. It's ici set. Macaroni shop that we all met at. I think he got like twenty one or twenty eight flavors of macaroni and they've got these amazing khorasan's but chocolate and plain. They have like cruff ins and ham and she's croissants and it's just it's magical so if if you guys were throwing links upper whatever i can send you their instagram. But this'll be on our travel guide. Beautiful you can go there for espresso coffee or like lavender lemonade. I mean it's got something for everyone. So we're gonna fill up on pastries their first and then depending on carbs and caffeine. It's very important but depending on the weather will probably hit up like the art museum. Just i think art and art jan role no matter what city i'm in i always go like gravitate towards art so we'll go there Fabulous art work. You can climb the steps that rocky climbed in the movie There's also the rocky statue which is a huge photo op for a lot of people. There's often a line about the same size as the gyms steak line. So make sure you're prepared to wait to take a photo The beautiful area no. Oh yeah the parkway like that. The art museum district like area along with the parkway it was kind of laid out in this like grand like grand scheme kind of on the same level as european cities when the city was planned. And if you look at it from like an aerial view you'll truly see it'll kinda give you the same vibe if you've been to the top of the eiffel tower and you're looking down at paris it. It's got some of the same vibe to it so very very pretty area just to be outside. There's like a garden in the back of the museum Little restaurant there. So we're going to start somewhere like with arch and just kind of go through it. Try not to spend all day there. 'cause you definitely can but we'll try to move on and then maybe if it's already midday will hit up a place in the neighborhood of fairmount which is right next to the art museum. Going to get some brunch. Probably go to jack's firehouse It's an actual fire house that was built in the eighteen hundreds and they've got this really good like it's american food but it's got some southern recipes. Mac and cheese is amazing. It's definitely a a really good hangover cure or just like a good lunch or dinner spot regardless and then right after that we can go right across the street to eastern state penitentiary And go right there to see. It's like it's an old jail basic. Yeah it's really cool I think i'm bad at this. But like i think it was al capone that That stayed there like that's where he was imprisoned. Okay you can go see his jail cell. I think he had like some fancy furniture in there. 'cause over demand that kind of thing as opposed to sleeping on prison mattresses but now it's spooky. Is it like a short drive a train ride or can you walk there from like the philadelphia museum. Oh yeah probably take like five to seven minutes like you can. It's right across basically from the museum like if you were to map it's a walk on phillies of very walkable city The only reason ever really need to get an attack and uber is if the weather is horrendous. Or if you're like pressed for time but other than that very walkable city and you'll see just tons of stuff to get sidetracked on while you're walking for for the day but yeah very walkable and then after that we continue. We continue maybe south. I would say we'd get on the subway right near city hall Which again is a very short walk or we can get on at the fairmount station. That's easy to do. We go south to the philly magic gardens. Which is this lovely. It's like there's like this empty lot that was transformed into this art installation disgu- isaiah ziegler. I think is his last name. If you google the magic arden's you'll see it. But he is an artist. He put up all this stuff like it's mosaics. Basically of glass tile bottles Old bike tires. It's garbage kind of like there's some relative garbage used in art but it's a really great way to recycle. I think and i've always loved it. I've been going there since high school. It never it never gets old. It's just this fascinating place where art is just part of the building and i would strongly recommend that you do not miss that if you if you come here. It's just a really must see unique. Nick spot unending. If we are still hungry will hit up south street for cheese steaks. Maybe go pats depending on how much time we have and then continue on to. Maybe i would go back up north to chinatown just to walk around. And there's a lot of really cool shops amazing dim sum restaurants and some great sushi spots in there. We'd all of that. It's it's so. But i had last night. It was it was amazing. And then if we're if we're heading north we could probably go back up to city hall city hall. Actually a lot of people don't know this but up at the very top like where the statue is You can't there's an observation deck up there you go up there in that circular looking kind of dome and get a really got a really awesome view of the city. I can send you guys a photo that we didn't have not a lot of people doing. It's not very like well advertised either. You don't see signs at city hall saying hey come on come on in. it's it's it's a shame because not a lot of people know about it. It's only five bucks. you go up. The catch is though only four people at a time. The elevator is probably the size of like two shopping carts. Maybe it's very tiny. You get very very close with the people that you go up with which it might be closed now because code but you get up there. Think it's like five hundred. Fifty feet is how tall that building is. And you got a great panoramic and three sixty degree view of jersey of the city of like the northern and western suburbs. I mean it's really spectacular. You just you call ahead you book advanced and then pay when you get there. But that's another really simple frills cheap but amazing experience to do while you're here in the city so we'll that's like without fail. Always bring people to that. Whether it's winter summer spring never a bad time to go. This is my favorite part about this. Podcast really division. I had was because right now. I'm kicking myself. They can man. There's so many things which should done. I really had a great time. But my goal for this podcast. I think i speak for will as well as for the the single or the couple or the family. Who's in the airport or in the car on their to philadelphia. Not really knowing what they're getting into or what they're gonna experience listen to this and then they're not having to kick themselves afterwards going. Oh we should've done this. And that. So i love this..

"I. My red flag hadn't gone up. I thought okay. I'm okay with that. I'm okay strap in new york and it's a blast i. I don't think they need to necessarily be negative term but this particular one. We weren't fan so low. That was okay next. We have our tips from the travel agents. Riches i wish we had to be creative in cova Due to eating outside. But i think some of our cool tips came from having to be creative. One of them in particular was we found a rooftop bar called. The assembly was on the ben. Franklin parkway thank you oh my gosh this this absolutely fabulous Rooftop bar the tip comes in the form of go to a rooftop bar but call an advance and call for two reasons. Get a reservation if you need it. 'cause we found that a lot of rooftop ours are just totally booked and then to ask about dress code we we were prepared to dress up on this little weekend getaway. I had my shorts and my little akron. T shirts with me yeah. We didn't have any breast cancer jess shoes now and we found some of these. We're so glad that we call the rooftop bars for rooftop restaurants. I before going. 'cause we learned. Oh gosh we would have needed. Need trust the part to show up. So that's that was tip number one check out a rooftop. Are we recommend the assembly. It's huge dinner menu. But they did have nice apps and a great selection of drinks cigarette place to Nightcap and to pull out pull out a smartphone and and just aim your photo anywhere into the city and you're gonna get a fabulous picture. Absolutely our next tip had to do with that. It's that awkward moment. When you have to check out of your hotel or airbnb or boutique hotel at. I don't know eleven. Am or noon but your flight is in the evening. Oh yeah what do you do with your bags. Yeah in we found specifically in philadelphia. I don't know if they're countrywide. But we found a an app or website service called verto the e. r. t. o. e. I think that's how you pronounce it absolutely where a local Business will offer them a lockers up to anyone to come off in drop-off suitcase luggage. Whatever it is that they have Fee and they'll just watch over it and you can go and enjoy your day so you go on the website you find a local restaurant nearby. Where a local shop. They have Some safes you go to local place and you tell him. You're vertigo buyer. They'll take your luggage. they'll Tag it and everything so it's completely safe throw it into a safe place and they just they just watch over at for however long you need obviously will and i are both trusting people but we're also realistic so it's like my dad's rule don't don't tempt people unnecessarily so i think we keep your tricks on you whenever you're traveling. There's no reason to leave. Your passports behind in safes are lockers or in our case it was basically a small grocery store that was willing to hang onto our bags. I felt very i. I totally trusted them to such a reasonable cost. Think he was under twenty dollars. It was. I think it was twelve dollars for the two of us or the rest for the whole they. We didn't have to worry about our bags while we explored the city and then we just was time to the airport picked up. The saks ran out to p. h. l. philadelphia international airport Tip three is all about locations for where you're gonna stay. Oh yeah we were a little off the beaten path or just kind of far from everything we needed wanted to do. Yeah yeah we were. I think a mile away from city hall but it didn't feel like it. I mean it really. Didn't i recommend a like maybe one of the hotels off of Delaware riverfront there's a holiday inn that's pretty close buying If you're looking for a cheaper option right and then there's a really nice hilton. That's right off the water. It's if you're looking for a little bit more hilton. Let's see if we can find hilton. Scale where river. I mean just the location. Yeah yeah you you look it up and I think You know one of the not so much a tip. I kinda wanted to talk about some of the things that you absolutely have to do. When you go to philadelphia and one of the things for me. We mentioned rittenhouse. We've mentioned love square. We've mentioned independence hall. But i really want to hammer home that you need to go and check out. Benjamin franklin parkway There's a ton of museums there. There's the rodin. Museum is a replica of one of the david statues there which is really cool. And then yeah. There's the philadelphia museum of art but tucked away kind of behind it. Just maybe oh a five minute. Walk from the philadelphia museum of art. Is this Row of halloween houses. Yeah right That's called little house. Row country clubs so to speak. Yeah yeah they're they're Rowing clubs there to the local rowing clubs. That make up this row called boathouse row. And it's really cool in the daytime but it's especially cool at night at the night. Everything's lit up. They have depending on The season if there's a holiday if it's fourth of july and halloween. If it's christmas the they will light up according to the holiday. And it's just a really cool place. I mean there's a lot of maybe college age kids around the area that we're hanging out but At night and during the day there's a up beer garden. It was a really cool place and it really is about five minutes away from the philadelphia museum of art. So i think you realistically spend a whole day in the benjamin franklin parkway just checking out museums checkout restaurant checking out a rooftop bars Checking out the boathouse row and you really have a good day. It's a really cool place checkout if you're gonna come away from this podcast with kind of that way. What are the they set a lot. What are we supposed to do again. I think we can. We can summit up with spend time delaware. Riverfront spent time at benjamin franklin avenue area slash boathouse row and spent time in the old town. Yes seeing the the museums and whatnot. That hilton museum by the way was the hilton philadelphia at penn's landing nice and it is right in front of what was our favorite restaurant mushoo later. We're gonna talk and during our interview with a local. We're gonna talk to john from philadelphia. I'm just kind of eager to see he. He's really seems to be the restaurant. Expert of philadelphia. I've kind of eager We'll just see if he happens to throughout mushoo our favorite restaurant as one of his. Or maybe he won't mention. I don't know we'll.

If there's one thing we've pedia is good for its those lists where they show all the different cultural depictions from people and for lafayette. It has a whopping twenty four listings of movies. Tv shows or even songs that depict him. Why do you think he's been left out of the cultural spotlight. I went through the same thing that you did. Because i knew i was going to be coming on to do this. And talking about lafayette. You know in tv and movies and was like i don't actually remember him showing up that much I you know. I've i've seen him pop a few times. I think part of it is just like in the anglophone world like an english speaking world. there haven't been that many depictions even of just like the french revolution generally right and once lafayette leaves. The american revolution goes back to france. Most of his life and adventures are set in france and set against the backdrop of the french revolution. Which sure there have been some movies about that but it has never been like a recurring major source of movies and tv shows for the english. Speaking world i mean it's not like a western or even like pirate movies. And so if you're gonna if you're gonna get lafayette you're going to get him as a teenager in the american revolution and then even when you sort of like hone. In on the american revolution there are stories that are adjacent to events in the american revolutionary war of independence. But that even those are not exactly why a vibrant genre that keeps recurring. It's not like we keep going back and turning up but there's not like a movie every single year about the american revolution so he's already kind of confined to a spot that the historical imagination doesn't go back to actually give like if we were doing a show about Let's say the industrial revolution in britain. There's historical fiction set in industrial revolution britain. Every four months right there's always going to be a show about that. And so he's already kind of in a bit of a in a bit of a box and then he himself is just adjacent enough to kind of everything whether it's john adams or whether it's thomas jefferson or whether it's Ben franklin or george washington that he's always going to be just a very hillary character

Yeah, they have to. Oh, yeah. They were all getting high. That's what I hear. I wasn't there. I don't know. Is it true? They all they had help? Yeah. They grew it. Yeah, I know. But maybe they used it for rope or something. You know, rope. Yeah. I mean, I've been nice to know. I've always heard. Yeah, man, Jefferson, he had marijuana all over his farm. Was he getting high? I heard Jefferson kind of died penniless because spend all his money on weed on wine. Oh, So, for all the thinking about America is better than England. All these guys were hooked on the English goods like English wine and line from Europe and that sort of thing, And so they would, uh, I think he went broke. Because he just liked to sit around and read and get drunk in his older age, But he was allowed. I think, by the end of his life people kind of came in, and, uh And helped out, you know, Kind of like, who did I see? Yesterday is broke. That was watching. You know, I watch on my little of YouTube things, and I saw that somebody was broke after. Oh, yeah. Burt Reynolds apparently died broke. How'd that happen? Mr Smokey and the bandit and put his money away. Well, though he spent it all. I'm like these stupid like, Oh, yeah, I'll go in on a restaurant like when you're an actor. You guys always do this musicians and actors. Ah, well, I love Get involved in a restaurant. Then they walk away. Do you know restaurants almost never work for most people, restaurants. I grew up in the restaurant industry. Not by choice, but I just I was born in a dining room in a booth and, uh, my family always worked in restaurants, restaurants. They say you like, If you make it five years, then you've got like a 50 50 chance of actually making it. Restaurants do not do well, normally, very difficult. Razor thin margins of profit If you do it right. And the idea of, uh well, I got a few extra million dollars. I'll just plow it into a restaurant idea. You might as well just burn.

Carl Levin, Michigan's Longest Serving US Senator, Dies at 87

"First elected to congress in nineteen seventy-eight michigan's longest serving senator chaired the powerful armed services committee. He was very active around civil rights local development and protecting american workers having interviewed senator levin and read his memoir. Getting to the heart of the matter. I have some reflections. I imagined that if senator levin had a role in a television show he'd be fictional president. Jed bartlett's closest ally in the west wing practical and patriotic levin's thirty six years in the upper chamber as a democrat had paradoxes a democrat who investigated spending and financial excess in government as well as wall street a staunch believer as chair of the senate armed services committee. That america has a strong role to play in the world but voted against the second iraq. War levin was consistent with himself. He was a man who spent decades of politics. But i sense. He felt good about his impact when he saw himself in the mirror. Getting the heart of the matter reminds me of the writings of ben franklin. The similarities with the founding father aren't just physical appearance surprising wit and clearly understandable style both levin and franklin shared the belief that the long game mattered that even if it wasn't politically popular in the moment moment to make things happen in a country with a lot of people with differing views. You shouldn't always take everything off the table for your opponent that making is how democracy actually works his memoir is a blueprint without saying it and how we might put the broken engine of american democracy back together again. Levin rhetorically lays the parts on the table. I won't get into all of them. But they include the broken filibuster where he called out his own party for creating it then in order for an electorate and your colleagues to trust you you need to have a consistent northstar and compass and he's right if you look at the popular senior senator from vermont. The reason that he gets photo shopped everywhere sitting on a chair isn't because of any particular political stance it's because whether they agree or not people connect with him because they believe that he is who he says he is.

"So deborah and ben raised. Franklin's illegitimate son william. the boy's mother was never revealed. So he even had like the other son out of wedlock wasn't even Was like some other son that delake. Oh it wasn't deborah sun. Oh my god. And then they had two children of their own a son and a daughter. Oh so of course as the years progressed. Ben franklin proved invaluable to the birth of a new nation and though he was not overly religious in his early years his perspective changed as he grew older. And i think that's again talking about like we need the we need to add religion To make sure everybody does what they're supposed to. So during the revolutionary war his belief in god and god's governance overmanned shift. He was somewhat shocked. That the colonists one. I'm sure everybody was shocked about that. And the weight of the victory and the birth of nations made him. Think that god in some mysterious way must be moving in american history. Like god was making sure that this was all happening He told the delegates in philadelphia. Quote the longer. I live the more convincing proofs. I see of the truth that god governs the affairs of men. He was so convinced of this fact that he even wanted to open the meetings of the constitutional convention with prayer separation of church people. I know it was very confused on that yeah. People were somewhat shocked since he was known as a key figure in the american enlightenment which applied scientific reasoning to politics science and religion it promoted religious tolerance and restored literature arts and music as import disciplines worthy of study at colleges It was a key component in the movement that helped spur. The revolutionary war. So i guess because of that you know. American lightning seems very liberal or today probably was left to spend as well And so for him to then want to open it. With prayer seemed counter to leave. Fred franklin died of a pluralistic theoretic attack. Which is a heart issue. Yeah at the age of eighty four which is a nice long life for back. That or maybe. I don't know maybe a lot of people live that long. I think i think so. I think more people do than you think because deaths always drove down the average life span. Yeah exactly so but just the fact that he lived in the whole the whole set that whole century i think is interesting interesting to I mean even like anybody who lives from the beginning century to the end all the stuff that they've seen so that's like our kids. Our kids were born the first part of the yeah tunes. They're gonna live all the way through the twentieth century so he died leclair attic. It's at the age of eighty four having become overweight and plagued by illness in his later years he was the only founding father to sign the declaration of independence the treaty of paris and constitution. That's cool right. He flew in star nation in countless ways and has been jokingly referred to as quote the only president of the united states who was never president of the united states It does it was the first postmaster general so crazy he invented like some of the positions and then he showed everybody how to do them for the library to yes.

We had talked about him a little in our coffee. Podcast how he was in the coffee house so much in england that he had his mail sent there. Yeah that's really funny so so you go ahead leslie set up.

He's a bit of an overachiever and he lived a long time like he lived a long life almost the entire century. Seventeen six to seventeen ninety. Yeah he did alright. So i guess maybe he had the time for all that. But that's a very ambitious progressive. And like you said that He stopped schooling at ten for him to be that accomplished that you we were saying before we started recording. You could do that. Sort of thing back Like a white dude. Yeah so he was born like you said at seventeen zero six in boston massachusetts. He was one of seventeen children. His father had two wives and franklin was born to his father's second wife and he was the last ten boys in the family What like the youngest of just the boy just the part. that's insane. i know. I can't even imagine having that many children i guess some of them may be didn't make it out of childhood yatra them but I didn't see anything about that but still large family. His maternal grandmother came from a puritan family that was among the first pilgrim's to flee to boston from england due to religious persecution. So franklin's maternal grandfather was said to have been the sort of rebel destined to transform colonial america. He was a clerk of the court and was jailed for disobeying the local magistrate.

With rick steves to look at some of her favorite places to find a bit of europe. In america samantha. Thanks for joining us. Pleasure to be here rank. Boy know all i do is go to europe again and again and again but i really. There's a lot of europe hiding out here in the united states during covid lockdown times so we can't travel overseas like we'd like to but we can find little knockoffs here in the united states from all around the globe knockoffs because some of them are terrific kind of constructions and others are honest to goodness immigrant communities. That are still the way they were hundred and fifty years ago when they were there were settled just in my state washington. We've got leavenworth which is a famous little german. It's kind of a touristy. Gimmick but poulsbo is originally a norwegian town and its norwegian to this day and we have linden up by the canadian border which is a very dutch was settled by holland immigrants. What are your favorite slices of europe in america. Well one of my favorites is a city that i had gone to my entire life. My family Was brought up right outside of it and then after doing two years of europe came back to and it just hit me like a ton of bricks that this was a european city and that is philadelphia pennsylvania. It is by far the most for me. The most year of paean city in the united states and so then i started like do a deep dive like why is it so it was just a feeling i had like. Wow i just feel like. I'm in europe. And there were so many connections One of the main architects was an emigrant from leon france. He designed the ben. Franklin benjamin franklin parkway which is now. We're all the museums are lined. And he designed that off of the sean z z. and along this beautiful roadway parkway where they're abuse. There's the rodin museum. there's the philadelphia museum of art. Which has the largest collection of renoir in the world. Incredible and others rittenhouse square. They're all these not just pockets. Because i think you know there's places we'll talk about today the have pockets but this is a city that is just so of france and the best connection that i love about philadelphia is that it is also it has the most mural arts i think in the world and its sister city is leon so if you ever go to leeann france and the kuala rouge is where you see those phenomenal murals and that art that is available to all end. It's all over the city. That's what the to share so the city a definite of brotherly love is a great. If you want that. European and more specifically french you know kick

A Complicated Tax Season is Coming

"From wondering. I'm david brown in this business. Wars daily on this friday february nineteenth. Happy friday everyone. I think ben. Franklin put it simply enough. Nothing is certain in this world exempt death and taxes so yes even in the midst of a global pandemic after a year that was completely upside down. Tax season is upon us and boy. Is it going to be complicated this year. That's because of the covid. Nineteen pandemic of course and all the changes to the tax code that came with it. Think unemployment insurance. Ppp loans for a one k. Withdrawals stimulus checks recovery rebate credits. Pretty head-spinning isn't it. If there's one year to switch from filing your taxes to enlisting help well this just might be the year to do so at least. That's what tax assistance companies like turbotax h. and r. block. Want you to think the first day you can file and get a refund. This year has been pushed back around two weeks to let the irs get itself sorted but the delay hasn't stopped both turbo. Tax donation are blocked from getting out in front of potentially tax wary customers. Perhaps you saw quirky earworm filled ads for both companies during the super bowl around forty million people filed taxes on turbo tax which is owned by into it in two thousand nineteen far more than any other tax preparation product according to propublica the company. Let you file for free if your income is under a certain threshold and if you only need to file simple returns without claiming any deductions or credits. But this year a situation that simple is unlikely which means turbo tax could make a pretty penny they also charge more for folks who are self employed and for filing state returns in multiple states. Who would file multiple state returns. You ask well people who work remotely and don't live in. The same state is their employer and offices shut down early last year. A lot of people made the move to do just that which could cause some serious tax headaches. Turbo tax will help you through those at cost of course meanwhile h. and r. block had about half the number of turbo tax users and twenty nineteen. But it's also a bit less expensive filers using h. and r. block have the option of dropping off paperwork at actual brick and mortar offices. Sounds wild right now. Turbo tax in hr blocker just to the big dogs in tax preparation. But there are hundreds of locations across the us where qualifying individuals can get help filing taxes for free in any other year. If you make less than a certain threshold if you have a disability if you're over a certain age if you are learning english if you're currently experiencing homelessness you can sit down with an irs certified volunteer. Who'd help you prepare your taxes. But this year well kovic has changed that of course in person volunteer programs have largely moved online. And that's a barrier for folks who can't access technology leaders of these free federal programs fear that millions of americans could miss out on free tax help according to cnbc. Now there's one thing that could fix the headaches that usually come with taxes every year and help more americans keep more money in their pockets. And that's the us government choosing to make filing tax returns simple and free for most citizens. The government has the power to do this but according to a twenty nineteen investigation from propublica Certain company is making sure attempts to make free. Filing widely accessible are thwarted. What company would that be. You ask we'll that would be in to it. We jones turbo tax

Under Your Feet

"You may remember Charles Wilson Peel as the man featured in episode thirty four all about museums in Philadelphia's independence hall above the very room where the declaration of Independence was signed. He opened a museum to display a whole bunch of unusual things. There were mammoth skeletons, ancient artifacts, a wily and well traveled little prairie dog and a wall full of portraits of very important people. He painted those VIP portraits himself appeal among everything else was a remarkable artist and the paintings that he made of the many people who lived in the late seventeen hundreds are some of the best of the time period. We should remember that in the seventeen hundreds there was no television or computers there weren't even photographs. So the average person would probably never actually catch a glimpse of someone famous like George Washington or Ben Franklin and person. which meant that they might not know what they really looked like. Isn't that funny thing to consider if you were alive at the time and wondered what a person look like looking at a portrait was just about the only way to see a famous face. So, curious people were happy to pay Peale's museum admission to see paintings of these very important people and finally put faces with the names they had heard about all the time, the old animal parts and the little prairie dog that peel had on display. Just a nice bonus. Now Peel was just one man and he couldn't paint everyone. Appeal portrait was typically an honor reserved for only the most notable people, presidents, founding fathers, famous personalities. You had to do something pretty special to get appeal portrait. And here's another thing to keep in mind. This was the seventeen hundreds in America and the early eighteen hundreds. So all of the faces that tended to fit those descriptions at that time were white faces. All except for one. On the wall that peel filled from floor to ceiling portrait's in his museum, one painting certainly stuck out to any visitor. It was the face of a black man and he was very old. And the dark skin on his narrow face was accented by white tufts of beard hair in the painting. He's wearing a knit cap on his head. Mike one you'll probably be getting out soon with the rest of your winter clothes. If you haven't already the old man's eyes looked bright and strong and his expression was one of satisfaction. It's an incredible face to look at and many people have wondered who was this man in a way the portrait happened by accident. In eighteen nineteen peel had traveled from his home in Baltimore to Washington DC to paint James Monroe the fifth president of the United States. while. They're peels. Curiosity was piqued when he heard about a free black man who is a practicing Muslim and who not only owned a home in nearby. Georgetown but was a successful business man who had helped finance the bank. This was remarkable and because this was forty six years before the civil war and the end of slavery, it was very unusual. This man was called Yaro Mahmoud. And people said he was one hundred and forty years old. That part was fake. He was probably around eighty at the time but everything else was true. Peel had to make a special trip across the Potomac River to meet Yaro talk with him about his life and have him sit for a very unusual portrait. Painting portraits takes a lot of time as you might imagine, which means there's plenty of time to talk, and that's what Yaro did. The little that we know about him today is mostly because Peel wrote much of it down. It's a pretty amazing story and one that challenges our ideas of the people who were living and thriving in. America at the time. In the year. Seventeen. Fifteen euro was only fourteen when he was captured and taken from his home in West Africa he like millions of other men, women and children was victim of the slave trade. People were kidnapped from their lands, take into another and forced into Labor. Euros people were known as the Fulani and it is believed that his family were wealthy Muslim leaders in this community. Historians think this because Yaro knew how to read and write both in the Fulani language as well as Arabic. Later in his life he learned to read and write a bit of English as well. Making him literate in three languages. That's a feet for anyone at the time but especially unusual for someone who would live much of his life and slavery. Most. Enslaved people would be kept from learning to read and write at all. But for euro, it helped him stand out. After the terrible journey on a slave ship across the Atlantic Ocean Yaro landed in Maryland where a man named Bell bought him directly off the boat. Everything and everyone Yaro new was gone never to be seen again, the man who legally purchased him was a wealthy farmer who owned several properties that depended on the work of enslaved people, farms, watermills, things like that pretty quickly though bell figured out that Yaro was more well suited for work other than hard plantation labor luckily, for Yaro, his education lead to another old, he became what is known as a body servant. In this role young Yaro traveled with bell everywhere he went. When he met with other farmers, Yaro was there. He met the people he would sell his grain too Yarra was there. When he met with powerful politicians, Yaro was also there. And nearly every one of those people would remember meeting Euro. Mahmoud. How could you not? He was obviously incredibly talented and smart, but also by being in the room when business was happening. Yaro was able to learn how to make it happen himself.

National Secondhand Wardrobe Day with Stephen Warley

"Hey there Stephen early here in I cannot wait to learn more about National Secondhand Wardrobe Day. Personally I'm minimalist and I always love looking for ways to. Save Money Save the environment and reduce stuff that I probably realized I don't need. Yes Stephen I remember talking about sparking joy, and decluttering the first time we met in a pub in Dorchester. Since that time I've made a major move and I purged multiple bags of clothes. It's quite evident since I wear the same six shirts. I've always been known as a fashion not. So there was no real downside in my purge. Today August, twenty fifth is National Secondhand Wardrobe Day. Perhaps you can share some fashionable secondhand clothes you purchased whether you did it to save a little money or to be more sustainable both reasons are perfect.

Charlie Kirk: Coronavirus stimulus

"And you have Schumer Pelosi. In Biden one hundred twenty five years, Charlie Kirk of failure, unmitigated failure, swap failure and I. Think of my kids. You met my son. He's twenty one years old. My daughter's eighteen and I would think about your America their America and when I say you know, live free or die, American, the world on the brink I'm not joking. And very specifically will be probably the biggest choice election by far in my lifetime, and maybe since eighteen sixty, and there's a lot at stake We can go through the issues if you want, but it's. It's there's there's not one issue we agree on that. I can think of for the most part yet, and you wrote this, and it just really sent chills down my spine. You wrote this book to sound an alarm as a warning. Warning to my fellow patriots about the left's undying commitment turn America into a land, our parents, founders and framers wouldn't recognize it. It's perfectly put, and that's the direction that they're headed on page twenty seven. You have a great part about how Ben Franklin says we ever republic. If you can keep it, can you talk more about how this truly is? A referendum election in some sense and the left is trying to do to our country. Well the the story about Franklin's interesting, because it's, it's the constitutional convention and somebody says he comes out one days, says, is it a monarchy republic republic? If you can keep it Reagan, I quote him off. When I give speeches, said Freedom Charlie and you know this is but one generation away from extinction. And you know when if you want understand if socialism is adopted if their stated goal is adopted America as we know, it then becomes unrecognizable look, I can understand psychologically. There's a component of maybe people that that have been indoctrinated in schools, and you're great at this because you're going in to hostile environments every day, and you're saying you know what there's another way of thinking here, so maybe the idea that people think Charlie that some things are oh, everything's going to be free and they're gonNA forgive my loans at I'll have a guaranteed government job guaranteed government food. How did obamacare workout now? We're GONNA have Medicare for all or or double down on the stupidity of Obamacare and guaranteed retirement. Guaranteed vacation sounds great. But simple math shows you that you'll never get there. And that's why in the Fourth Chapter of the book did this whole history of socialism which is a history of failure? The point is look at the issues. If if we're talking about law and order. They've cited in Portland in Seattle and new. York and Chicago with the radicals. Joe Biden his yet that I know of said one good thing about the ninety nine percent of cops protect and serve and put their lives on the line for us every day. You're right. Okay, so law and order taxes. He's pledging to raise your taxes through the roof. That will destroy the economy Then they're gonNA just add all the bureaucracy. The Donald Trump spent almost four years. Eliminating that'll be gone. That means nobody's GONNA WANNA DO Business. That's why the Biden Obama economy was so bad. Then you look at where now energy independent for the first time in seventy five years with a number, one producer of energy in the world will lose that for sure We'll shut down coal fracking. Oil Gas exploration production those tens of millions of jobs high paying jobs career jobs for people. Then it's about amnesty. Or the United Sanctuary states of America versus Border Security and law and order of never mind foreign policy. We haven't even touched that part yet, so. There's a lot at stake. If those plans stated plans are implemented. America will go down the past you know. The Trash bin of history as Reagan, said Freedom One generation away from extinction we will. It I shudder to think what will happen the three you and your children by kids, and and maybe one day grandkids. ARE READY FOR THAT And I love the framing, because as the founder said either we're GonNa live free and defendant right now, or we're gonNA. Have a country that you know. We don't WanNa live it, and that's really the framing. That is so important right now, and you talk about and I'm really pleased about this. Shawn because I think we have forgotten about the Russia hoax too quickly in. In the conservative movement, you have been the leader on this every night. You were covering it. You didn't let us forget you help. Muller Accountable, you had investigative journalism and it just seemed that an Oxana names, but other conservatives just kind of drifted away from like Oh. That's what happened happened. You have two chapters on this in the book. Can you talk about that? Yeah I mean I call it Charlie, the the biggest corruption abuse of power scandal in history and the Ukraine was oh. Okay, we failed with Muller after three years. We won't. We won't even bother with a special prosecutor not to I'm going backwards here but to get to Ukraine. You? Know they're talking about quid pro quos, but you have to ignore their presidential candidate on video saying you're not getting a billion US tax payer dollars unless you're fire. That prosecutor is named Shokhin. WHO's investigating my son Hunter who went on a and said? Do you have any experience in oil? No Gas, no energy, nope, any experience in Ukraine. Nope, why are you being paid millions? No, because you dad, so there was a quid pro quo and millions of dollars for the Biden I call crime family. That's exactly right, so. Listen and China's even worse. You get to this whole thing what we now know and I believe what's coming. It's like, and this is where the media's corrupt because. They're just the propaganda wing of all things democratic. Socialist. We now know and have all the evidence that we'd ever need is that they protected their favorite candidate. Hillary Clinton. For things you and I and everybody you know that follows you and you have a massive audience would. Literally never get away with. If you had subpoenaed emails Charlie Kirk and you decided to delete them, and you decided to acid. Wash your hard drive with something. I had never heard about bleeped bleach bit and bust up your devices with hammers. You'd go to jail. If you violated the espionage act, you'd go to jail. They protected her. Then the narrative began we now know began in August. We know crossfire hurricane representatives actually went to brief. President Trump General Flynn. Flynn on national security, but they were there to try and get information on trump and Russia, the most amazing part of this, because the Democrats and the media live for all these years is that they knew and they said and they wrote, and they even testified. There was never any evidence, but there was a dirty Russian dossier. And now we know even the New York Times acknowledged full full of Russian disinformation and that was used. And they were warned not to use it, but high ranking people abusing their power, wanting to take out candidate, trump, transition, team, trump, and then deep into the Presidency Donald Trump. They use the dirty Russian misinformation dossier to ruin Carter pages life and roomed his civil liberties and constitutional rights, but more importantly to spy on candidate trump, and then they had their insurance policy. The fact that the mob in the media ignores it is beyond comprehension. I have so I have two chapters. One is on the Russia hoax, and the other is on this whole impeachment witch hunt. And I want everybody in your audience to understand one thing here if I can get one point across. Yeah, they hate Donald Trump, but they hate us more. They think we are as Peter. Struck, said the smell by the way I probably shop at Walmart say money. Why not you have a woman I love Walmart I love COSCO's. I Love I love it all. And I've shopped there my whole life I mean people always stopped me when I'm in a grocery? So, what are you doing here? Shopping? Wa I like to eat a cracks me up. So but think about that. smelly Walmart Shoppers while irredeemable deplorables, wow! Bitter Americans as Obama said that WANNA cling to their God. I'm guilty their Second Amendment Rights Guilty Bibles and religion I'm guilty of that, too. But. It's contempt for your audience. It's contemporary my audience. It's because they knew better. And they will ling. This was an attempted coup. Now do I think there's going to be arrests and prosecutions I? Do spend much slower than any of us would have liked, but the evidence is overwhelming. It's incontrovertible sad actually that this could happen. That was going to be my follow up. Question Sean because when I travel and we get thousands of e mails a on this topic. When are people going to go to jail? And can you give me insight on this? Can you give us any clues any crumbs that we're starting to see from Durham? It's I call them. It's funny. You say crumbs because call them the the Attorney General Bar breadcrumbs. It's like Hansel and Gretel. Remember. We're we're trying to follow and see the trail exactly yeah. He did say that the president was spied on. It did happen illegally. The. Think about this. If you go before Judge Judy I wouldn't WANNA lot because Judge Judy I. I've met her once she'll eviscerate. You I watched her show. You. Don't go before a court. The information that you have not verified. It actually said at the top of a FISO Warren Charlie. It says verified. Okay. We now know the dossier was unverifiable. The sub source we now know, said this this bar talk. We were making this up. This was never meant for anything and again Hillary paid for it funneled money separate issue. And so, what is going to happen I don't have a crystal ball but I. do know all of the facts that are in the public. Are Enough to indict many of the names that your audience is most familiar with. I would argue. Komi McCabe struck page. I'd like to know a clapper. Brennan's role in all of this ends up being and and others. The more fascinating deep question is. Will they get to that January fifth twenty seventeen meeting inside the Oval Office? This is when member Biden said George Stephanopoulos Oh I. Don't know. Anything about this, you know this whole impeachment Russia thing. He was the one same. Bring up the Logan Act fifteen days later Susan Rice in that meeting did the Cya memo the day that Donald Trump was inaugurated. Obama in that meeting shot Sally Age by saying a He. He knew everything about the Kislyak Michael Flynn call. If we look. To sum it up. I think we're GONNA get there because the evidence. Is that overwhelming? If we don't. I fear for the country? Because of you. GonNa Raid Manafort's home predawn raid and you're going to raid Roger Stone's home. For lying to Congress by the all many of the names I mentioned were referred for the same crime and you're gonNA. Pull it twenty nine guys in tactical gear, frogmen and tip off CNN cameras and. Have a biased jury for person. We won't have equal justice and equal application of our laws, and worse than that Charlie is. We lose our constitution. Yes, all our laws are are predicated on next great document and some `perfect, but it creates the path to perfection at a more perfect union so. Long answers. I'M GONNA talk. Show I love it. No, this is what our audience needs to hear, and and thank you for that and look I I completely agree because if we do not have people and I, say this as carefully as I can in handcuffs for what they did Donald Trump then I I will lose faith in the American justice system I. Don't want that and I don't want revenge I don't retribution I want people to be held accountable and I would want the same if someone did this to Barack Obama because it should never happen to a leader ever. Yes. and. They've gone after every single trump friend confidant, and yet if you oppose Donald Trump you get different treatment, talk a lot about the constitution in your book and the founding of our country, Sean going to be honest, I've been very let down by some of these supreme. Court decisions lately Can you comment on that and the importance to get more people like Kavanagh? Who's actually ruled brilliantly? Unlike John Roberts. I! I'm a little. I don't know what's happening. Roberts I have my theory I guess I have my sources people that. have their own ideas based on some knowledge? For whatever reason and I think this goes back to the obamacare decision. He has allowed. How the court appears to influence his decision making. I also sense with no evidence whatsoever. You're not a big fan of president trump, but that should not come into his thinking. Now. If getting rid of bureaucracy and lowering taxes and energy, independence, and securing our borders, and law and order are all part of this election. Let me tell you another big part of it. And it's you know we're taping this ninety. Whatever days away from the Election Day, I what about and we got asked. What about the Supreme Court? Yes, I go through a whole list I. Forget what paid maybe sixty seven I forget. A. In the book. Of. All the things Democrats would do if they're getting power one, is they? WanNa, stack the courts. Get rid of the Electoral College. And I. What, they're saying they. WanNa do is scary. They used to hide it Charlie. When I every single Liberal Democrat running for office, they would run to the left in the primary. They race back to the center, but you knew they wanted the left. There now openly embracing the most radical elements in the country and you know. Unfortunately we're watching it all. Play out nightly on TV and and that sad what I see happening when I think we have to remind a trump supporters that these are not trump appointed justices, a gorsuch I think ruled incorrectly on one ruling. That's it besides that gorsuch and cavenaugh have been tremendous and terrific verses Roberts. I just think we have to give the audience a sense. Sense of continued conviction that the trump appointed justices will continue to rule correctly and Clarence. Thomas and you know the the Thomas Family. They get no credit at all. I mean what he has done. And can you comment on that? 'cause I, E, you've actually been you open my eyes to that like eight years ago and I never learned about Clarence Thomas as a high schooler until you I mentioned it just as a quick aside on his incredible career. I like to do on TV and antidote on radio, too. Sometimes I call it the Hannity history, lesson 'cause I lived through all of this. I know this is going to see. You're not even thirty three, but my radio journey started in nineteen eighty-seven crazy right. Now on my twenty fifth year of Fox, I didn't think I last two. So I feel very blessed. As a side note if you haven't read my grandfather's son. Which is about Clarence Thomas is life. It's amazing. But. You know it's interesting because him and Scalia. To my opinion, my to most favorite justices in my lifetime. Scalia this incredible wit and genius and understanding and. They got a little acerbic side to when when he was questioning Clarence Thomas always set by quietly. What they called a high tech lynching at the time, the more modern. Let it. You gotTA. Remember Yeah. And you know. It was then Senator Ted Kennedy you know Robert Bork's America the borking of America. That was Clarence Thomas. Now we see it more recently cavenaugh. It exposes. The, who is Joe Biden? Who is his team? Because Clarence Thomas and Justice Scalia or the people we need on that court. We call them constitutionalists or originalists, the original intent, not people that would sight foreign law as liberal justices have done or not people that feel that they can rule by judicial Fiat and dictate or legislate from the bench. Democrats always wanted the court to do that which they could never. Do legislatively or win at the ballot box and that's why they want. We call them. Activists Justices Clarence Thomas. has shown a fidelity to the Constitution at the Antony Scalia. That is beyond enviable And the differences styles always interesting, too because Justice Thomas will always be quiet. That's very few questions. Anthony Scalia was in there in a wrestling with people. I don't know about John Roberts. I can't get into it, but I do believe the next president United States is a very good chance. You have a lot of older justices may want to retire. And I think that the next this election in just three short months. That's on the ballot and that's that's generational now. And Sean I think we have to pressure the Biden campaign to do what trump did and release a list of justices I mean president trump was so transparent and Joe Biden hasn't done it yet. Intentionally, of course, because he'll probably put repeated to lieber something on the United States Supreme Court I mean as horrifying as that might be so in two two quick closing question Sean and thank you for being so generous with your time anchorage, everyone you know. Know go by live, free or die. the first is this. Can you just talk about? We are heading into the election. A lot of trump supporters. They're failed. They're falling victim. They suppression pulse I wish that wasn't the case, but it seems like the memory of two thousand sixteen as faded where people forget. We were down by double digits. Can you just give a little vote of confidence to some of our listeners out there? That think we're just losing. I WANNA. Give the vote of confidence, but I want people to feel this way. I want people to think I'll use a football analogy that our mutual friend Linda that you know. Who's your biggest fan? My radio producer? He's amazing. Amazing, but she doesn't even know how many points you get a touchdown, so I'm giving these football analogies. I, want this election. I want people to feel the way I feel which is. We're on our own twenty. Two minutes to go. We have no time outs We're down by six. We got a cross. The plane marched down the field, cross the plane and hit the extra point to win. So if people feel a sense of genuine urgency and worry and concern, I'm cool with that because fear often as a great motivator, not irrational field fear, but if people do not vote, you will get the government that they're telling you. They're going to give you believe. That that is their agenda. To be a Republican and win. You GotTa always use this analogy got to run the table I gotTA. Get Florida Georgia North Carolina can't win without Ohio. No Republican's ever become president without it right? You got hold Iowa then you got pick off Pennsylvania Wisconsin hopefully Michigan maybe MINNEA- Minnesota will be play. Maybe the city of Arizona will be in play. By Joe Biden reference for those of you. That didn't get. We got a hold Arizona Gopher Nevada New Mexico. New Hampshire and Maine's second congressional district. If every single mom, this is a battle cry. You started out this interview with this. I wrote this book not because I like writing books. My last book I donated every Penny I made to charity I don't care. It's not that. This is a tipping point. Charlie this is I, don't. See if these policies are implemented how America recovers. Irreparable harm the to the rule of law to our courts to our economy, they want to wipe out the lifeblood of of the world's economy. This this promise of socialism and I go into such detail about how it's always failed. Here's a quick socialism of example. Member obamacare. Keep your doctor keep your plan. Save on average twenty five hundred dollars a year per family right? Okay. Millions lost their doctors. Millions lost their plans. We're all paying about two hundred percent more and add to that. Forty percent of Americans almost forty percent have only one obamacare Biden Carriage James Choice now. How did they do with that promise? Medicare is going broke. How did they do it? That promised social security. Charlie hate the break this here. He paying into it. You probably won't get it I. Barely Skate through, and they might give me ten cents until they means tested and then take it back, How does it? How did Liberal government work in New York City with all the anarchy cutting a billion dollars, so please? How's IT WORKING IN CHICAGO? All. These liberal cities have where the violence we've been talking about takes place. They all have one thing in common. They've been run by Liberal Democrats for decades right. Most of these states have been run into the ground by Liberal Democrats for decades. If you WANNA know what America will look like if Biden Bolshevik Bernie. Pelosi Schumer and Bozo. That team gets place look at new. York state and city look at Chicago the City Illinois. The State Look at California. Look at Oregon. Look at Portland, the city. Look at Seattle. Look at the state of Washington. Yes. And I. Love this country too much. You know it's an all hands on deck moment and Every everyone of you've got this connection with younger people in this country. You have this incredible. A credible platform you built, and it's become powerful and meaningful and transformative to the country, and you're going out there, and you're fighting on these college campuses and you. You know it's not easy to be in the middle of a I call it a shift. Show all the time, but let's well put, but you do it. And it's freedom works. Every time you give up freedom for security, you lose your freedom because the security that they're offering. These promises that can never ever be fulfilled. In America. The land. I'll close with this unless you want to go further I can keep going the. Barry Farber who was a mentor of mine. Just recently passed away like ninety ninety one. And he always said there's never been a country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power and abused at less than the United States well I add. A country in the history of mankind that has accumulated more power abused at less, but used it to advanced human condition. The reason America is great and exceptional. If I can say that today, it's not perfect, but it's great. An exceptional is because of its people, and because of the fundamentals of liberty and freedom. So that? Natural rights versus government or rights, natural rights come from God doubt by our Creator. Life Liberty pursuit of happiness while you can't pursue happiness these days in Chicago New York Moreland Seattle. So there's a lot on the line. I love your audience. I'm so thankful for all you're doing, and you've got a great team that you building review and you're out there fighting the fight and I just urge you guys. Just fight like your country depends on it. Because America's, we know it. It's all hanging in the balance. Yet was Sean. You've been so generous the last quick thing I defend the president all the time personally as a person. Can you comment on that because I've had the opportunity to meet him? not as much as you obviously and get to know him, but a lot of people here misrepresentations in lies about who he is as a human being. Let's close on this note. Can you just mention one or two things that that people can take away from that? You know first of all. It's interesting. Nobody seems to understand Donald trump yet. They don't want to understand. I mean Donald Trump. The Dog Bites the beasts, things you feeling sad or get cancer. You Complain Trump. I mean that's how saying the leftist. But here's a guy that is so unique he this guy is like a soon nami force of energy like I've never met my life. The most distinct and unique quality he's had is as president. You mentioned the Supreme Court. He put those people that he said he put. He cut the bureaucracy as he said he'd caught, and he cut the taxes as he said he'd cut. He did the North Dakota. A keystone pipelines Anwar Likey said he would. He's building the wall or almost four hundred miles. A wall by the by election will be over four hundred miles. He found a way it was. It was an uphill climb He said he wanted to pull us out of foreign conflicts, but not back away from evil defeated. The Caliphate took out. Baghdadi and Associates took out Sola Mani took out the Al. Qaeda leader in Yemen. So? What makes him special and unique in terms of presidency is that he is who you see is who you get. The guy that's fights on twitter is the guy that's fighting for a better trade. Deal the guy that fights. Against Liberal Democrats and the media mob is the same guy is fighting to keep his promises that to me makes him the most unique transformative political figure in our lifetime. And Right now. The. We tip the scales. You have a choice. It's never been a bigger choice. He will keep his promises. Coronas been a little bit of a curve ball to the world, but even that ten days after the first case, the only guy that I know of thought about a travel ban will be donald trump. They were teaching at the time and Joe Binder Biden was call them Sinophobic, so he's a man of his word. He's a man that will fight to his last dying breath for this country and the promises he made, and that makes them in my view very transformative. Men will.

After The Fact

The New American Library

"When was the last time you went to the library? Was It for a book a movie? Even a toy. Was it for an exercise class, or maybe it's one of the few places where you're able to access the Internet. For the future trusts I'm Dan La Duke, and this is after the fact. Libraries aren't just about books anymore and haven't been for a long time. But. They've always been about the democratization of information. Thanks to Benjamin Franklin it was about this time of year on July. First 1731 that Franklin created the first free lending library in Philadelphia it signaled a real change in the world that America, not yet its own country. Was a place where information could be available to everyone turns out. That concept has become a cherished one. The Pew Research Center reports that seventy eight percent of Americans say public libraries provide information, and here's the key part information that is trustworthy and reliable. That's no small thing in this digital information age when many people are also saying they have trouble. Sorting fact from fiction sounds like something we're talking about and celebrating and joining us to do just that is Carla Hayden the Librarian of Congress the fourteenth person and the first woman and African American to serve in that role. So Carla Hayden Welcome. It's a delight to talk to you. Thank you. This is a great time to talk about libraries this time of year this podcast likes to talk about the importance of certain American institutions and how they've made our country great. We are right around the fourth of July. That's whenever we want is sort of paying attention to the Declaration of independence, and that's an important thing, but there's another another big American holiday that people may not realize on July first back in seventeen, thirty one when Ben Franklin created the first library in this country beckoned those days. What was the stated goal of a library? And how how if any way is it different? Than the goals today. Benjamin Franklin if you remember was a bookseller and a lover of books, and that time books were very rare and very expensive, and they could only be obtained with great difficulty and so Ben, Franklin. Wanted to have a membership society, The Philadelphia Library Company and he started the idea of lending library and it was in this time. They weren't a nation yet, but it was starting and the idea that. Information and ideas should be free and not clasp out. So that library was created not scholars, the rich one class, but for people who could not afford to have their own, and as time in the decades progressed I mean. The other founding fathers Thomas. Jefferson, being one of them recognize the need for the institution that you now head the library of Congress. It's IT'S A. It's the biggest in the world for for for one thing. Why was there this decision back then to create a library of Congress and National Library sorts in eighteen, Fifteen The British destroy the US capital and there were about twelve hundred. Legal books near for Congress and I've been told, and even shown the fireplace in the capital where the British actually use some of those books, those initial books to start that fire, and at that time Thomas Jefferson the great collector books at the largest personal collection of books in the country at that time. Had retired to Monticello, and he offered to sell his collection to the country to start the library of Congress, and it included the Koran. It was a universal collection. The idea that Congress needed more than just legal books soon said there is no subject to which member of Congress may not have occasion to refer the democratization of information was The whole democracy notion was pretty new in the world in those days. How important is the free flow of information in libraries? ROLE IN OUR DEMOCRACY? Libraries have been almost bastions of equal opportunity to information. The idea that anyone could have access to books. And what more importantly was contained in them was the great equalizer in unifier in many ways now there were difficulties in this country as you could imagine in the Jim Crow South. On there was the segregation of public libraries like public facilities, and that was something that even carried over into some of the northern. A states that had as they call them colored branches. Actually were designated, but that idea. Of A library, being a place as librarians like to say, books could battle it out on the shelves. You put. A book about one thing there and the possibly opposing idea book that describes in another idea. Right next to it and let the public decide.

Senator Rips Ted Cruz for 'Crocodile Tears' Over Shutdown

"Works securing the border. Walls are effective and I'll tell you every single border patrol agent. I've asked that and I have asked dozens probably hundreds of border patrol agents are walls affected unquestionably. They say, yes, let's not. Let's talk man. Walls, aren't the only thing you need technology, you need boots on the ground all sorts of other tools, but walls, the critical point in intercepting someone crossing over illegally. Is the time between detection. Interception. And what a wall does is slows down the traffickers to give the border patrol time. Intercepted. And by the way, we've seen it over and over again at San Diego when they built the wall the illegal traffic plummeted in El Paso when they built the wall the traffic plummeted. But now the Democrats their position it's not substantive. They voted for three hundred fifty miles a wall. So why are they shutting the government down over two hundred and thirty four miles at wall. It's not substantive. It's political. Okay. We get they hate Donald Trump. If anyone in America had missed that point that they really really really don't like this, man. There yelling and screaming, and we has made that a bundle clear. But just because you hate somebody. Doesn't mean you should shut the government down. I voted to keep this government open right now today, the Democrats are filibustering funding for the government. Let me tell you something else. A Senator from Colorado in dispute we had a whole colloquy with a Senator from Louisiana. The Senator from Mississippi the Senator for the last about funding, the coastguard did you notice? Madam President in that entire. Bellowing speech. The words coastguard whenever uttered. Not once. What Senator Kennedy asked this body to do was pass a clean Bill to pay the paychecks of the coast guard Senator Kennedy's Bill? Does it mention whether you like what are not mentioned in medieval wall or any other kind of? Well, it's simply says pay the coastguard. Yes. No. Every Republican agrees pay the coast guard right now, it's not fair to treat the coastguard differently than we're treating the army and navy and marines and air force. Senator from Colorado didn't address that. Because it is indisputable is the fact that the reason that didn't pass right now. Is because the democratic leader stood up and Nate an objection. And by implication, every democratic Senator presumably agrees with the fact that the Senator from Colorado didn't say, yes, we should fund the coastguard, and you know, what my leader was wrong. When he held the paychecks of the coast guard men and women hostage. Because he wants to win a political fight with the president. And by the way, I would note to the Senator of Colorado. It's not the end of the world to stand up to your party's leader. Some of us have a history of having done. So in the past. We're now in the longest government shutdown in history shutdown needs to end the American people want it to end. We also need to secure the border. And Madam President. I have to say the contrast between the two parties, it could not be clear. The president has repeatedly said he wants to negotiate and he wants to compromise. He said he's willing to meet in the middle. He hasn't insisted on. Every mile a border wall. He asked for he hasn't insisted on every single dollar a border security. He said, let's meet and compromise. Republicans on this side of the chamber of said, let's compromise in the middle and the position of Senate Democrats, they will not negotiate. They will not compromise period. So their position how many miles of wall can be built zero to one yet. When it comes to negotiating their position is not an inch of law can be built, even though we the Democrats already voted for three hundred and fifty miles out why. Because Donald Trump's president. That is an extreme and radical position. And look I understand folks watching at home, it's hard to tell you. You're reading the news. It seems like both parties are bickering. It's hard to tell what's happening, particularly because on the on the Senate floor. There's a lot of procedural mumbo jumbo. If you wanna understand what's going on the exchange between Senator Kennedy and Senator Schumer illustrates at all. Senator Kennedy's building one thing. And one thing only paid the salaries of the men and women of the coast guard it didn't touch any other issue. Every Republican agrees with that Bill. And the Democrats objected and said we will not pay the Goa coast guard had they not objective. We could put that Bill on the president's desk today, and they could get their paychecks right now. That is emblematic of the approach of Senate Democrats. And so. The Senator from Colorado. Stopped screaming at me. He then engaged in a bit of historical retrospective, Ted Cruz of Texas about the great framers of our constitution. That I enjoy it. Then that I very much agree with. I'm someone who's spent a lifetime devoted to the constitution. I am inspired by the framers who gave us this extraordinary Democratic Republic. The Senator from Colorado called for members of this body to aspire. To be more. Like this men and women that gave us this country gave us this Republic. If you can keep it. Benjamin Franklin put it. And I concur with that. And what I would urge the Senator from Colorado. Is to reach out to his democratic colleagues and council compromise. I am urging my colleagues on this side to do the same. And the difference is the Republicans are willing to compromise have offered to compromise. And in fact, just now sought to pay the coastguard and the democratic position is no, no, no we object. That is partisan. It is extreme. And it is not behavior. That would bring pride to the framers of our constitution. I hope that this body can do better. Senator from Colorado democrat, Michael Bennet, Texas for having this conversation. I don't think I was yelling. But I'll go watch the taper screaming at you. I also have never call anybody on this floor a liar. As you did somebody twenty fifteen on this floor, but the ethics of all of this. But I just wanted to say two things one. I appreciate the fact that you at least seem to be accepting the fact that every democrat who is here on that immigration Bill twenty thirteen voted for voted for the three hundred fifty miles of all that you're talking about. You didn't vote for that Bill or the Senator from Texas didn't vote for that Bill Nye soom, you had your reasons by the way, I wouldn't presume to think what you would think about it as a border as a person from border state. I say stop far from the border. And we see the effects ill real for good immigration in my state. But I do know this there were two senators from a border state. State of Arizona who were on that gang Bill. With whom I sat day after day after day negotiating the provision for months, and they didn't have to just. Vote for the Bill we're against it. But they had to go home to Arizona. John McCain and Jeff flake didn't explain why they support. And why was the right thing to do for Zona? Which is a Senator from Texas knows is a border state. So the idea that there's a problem to be solved here because Democrats in this chamber for open borders is false. As the Senator indicated. The second point is. Senator from Texas reference. Ben Franklin Franklin was standing outside the steps of constitution hall and somebody who was passing by this while they're writing constitution. Said mr. Mr. Franklin, what kind of government, are you creating a monarchy or Republic? That was the question. And is a Senator Cruz has said his answer was a Republican if you can keep it. If you can keep it. His injury was not a Republican. It was a Republic if you can keep it. Because he knew that the words written in the constitution. We're going to preserve themselves. Exercising democratic self government. A Democratic Republic. Would require generations. Of women and men not just in this chamber. But as citizens. And
