"They usually say no. And so where we at now. Just this past weekend. A group of right-wing individuals trump supporters. Were trying to put on what they call the summer of love. Anti-fascists show up and threw smoke bombs and objects than you get the right wing groups that knew that would happen. Shut up shut up for the fight. Then engage with them. And then you get roving street battles throughout portland where the police say. They refused to intervene. And then two people end up in a shootout people are ducking hitting the ground bolts are flying so i i wondered how long it would take us to get to the point where boats start flying. Were at that point now. Luckily nobody was shot. But i think even understand two for one. Maybe it all ends right now. Maybe that was the moment people saw the gun battle. You know it was a shootout between two people important and say this has gone too far. We gotta stop. i personally. Don't believe that because we saw charlottesville and even after charlottesville which has several years. Now it's still happening and people are still fighting. And i think people need to realize that when you read the history of either the spanish of the war of the russian revolution or weimar germany. It's not like it happened overnight when people read history reading this this this condensed version where it will say you know the boston tea party happened. The boston massacre happened. Americans declared independence but a lot of these people. Don't understand the american revolution was twenty years long. That these these famous moments like the tea party in the massacre where years apart from each other we read history. We think it happened like the next week. So so what i see is now twenty twenty one gun battles in portland. That's that's insane. We've got Joe biden's approval rating among democrats of course eighty-five percent among repub disapproval among republicans. Ninety five percent but among independent voters it's starting to collapse as well the the amount of fervor we saw against donald trump eighty one million votes. And i genuinely believe. I don't i don't think i i don't believe the fraud stuff. I think i think people anti elected trump. they said no to this man and they came out so what happens in twenty twenty two when republicans. Take the house back in the us. What happens in twenty twenty four when you get a trump to santa's the hyper polarization. The tribalism is not de-escalating. I wish it was. But the the fundamental values and moral frameworks of both parent factions are so divergent at this point. I don't think there's a bridge crossing over a good example is actually. There's a story right now. Journalist was attacked by anti-fascist. And i believe it was in portland is a video of it. You can actually watch the video of him calling her a slut shoving her. The ground sprang with paint and may singer and right now if you go on twitter all of left twitter says it was actually the proud voice there there are so tribalist on on on their worldview. They will not accept fault for their own side. And obviously i think the right has its faults. I think the cowboys who shop to fight are causing equal trouble to a certain degree and people have just they have their sides. They wanna fight. They're they're not interested in what is true. They're interested in what they believe. And they're incident confirmation bias. I think when independent voters start swinging away from biden which they are and they might vote for republicans which. I don't necessarily think solves any of the problems. You'll end up with a massive reaction on a much worse than we saw in twenty twenty with the riots because people are entrenched. You know they don't want to back down from what they believe to be true or their world view and i think just one final thought on this a simple way to explain the difference. I do not think you will ever see. A large movement of trump's supporters embracing critical race applied principles critical rates practice. You'll see that You know the left will obviously be very much in favor of their vision of equity and equal outcomes and racial quotas. The right won't do that and so long as you have two governments Fighting over control of one centralized system where they want to implement their moral framework. I think ultimately ends up with some kind of implosion. Well too mean starting with the stuff you were saying about the breakdown of if you're enjoying this conversation.

That's what T stood for, right? Yeah, it was all about and it was a throwback to our history of people do it of Taxation without representation. Boston Tea Party exactly absolutely used to build, even in a relatively small about how the middle class of America was being taxed to death. In order to keep the elites happy with her progressive ways. Even in a relatively small town like Richmond, I hosted one of those we had, like almost 15,000 people. I mean it at the beginning that thing he was huge.

Here's the question those the time right for Tea Party 2.0 conservative activists. Dale holes joins us. What do you think they'll will there be another tea party movement? Well, I personally think that the tea party movement has never gone away. They just go by a different name. Now they're called Trump supporters. Okay. And how many? We had a guest on earlier this morning. Who seemed to think that only about 30% of Republican voters were trump supporters. What is your call on that? Just who have rest. We'll try. Try. Try again.

The Republican Party, the midline, the rhinos, whatever. They just got the benefit of it, You know, I think once the president gets a second wind, I think he would probably be all about leading a movement like that, so I wouldn't expect him to go away.

"About it either. Bruce Arians, the head coach, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. A lot of these players. NFL n BA NHL decided to not practice or to cancel a bunch of games because of the shooting in Kenosha. And Bruce Arian, the coach. Cama Bay Buccaneers said. I don't know that protest is an action. I think each guy has a personal thing. I would beg the players to take action. Find a cause either supported financially or do something to change the situation in protest. Ng doesn't do crap in my opinion. I've been seeing it since 1968. He's talking about the Democratic convention in Chicago. But this is a heck of a courageous thing to say. Protesting doesn't do crap. Already people in the sports media world or outrage that he would say this, but the Boston Tea Party was protest. No, it was action. It was much more of them just marching up and down the street or carrying a bunch of signs or looting and destroying other people's property. There is a big difference between action in protest and what he was really saying Wass cancelling practice, not practicing football. One day is not going to change anything you claim to be in favor of is not going to matter. A whit And so he didn't say this. I will. They're getting away with engaging in a bunch of symbolism. While not having to engage in any genuine substance. A couple of things here that I want Delve into. I actually believe I saw little note from Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit..

Nakano was talking about have their grievances, but Nick Cannon, as part of a disenfranchised group also has his green. Mrs, and if he was more better versed in how to express those grievances. Maybe he wouldn't loss it. That's what I'm saying. I can't help but to look at the fact that you can. Might not be fair to say right now. But you can express your feeling toward.

"For a nation to achieve independence is no small thing. In the twentieth century, many former colonies achieved their independence through mostly peaceful means with definitive negotiated day where the handoff occurred. We're the country officially became independent for example on August. Fifteenth Nineteen. Forty. Seven in became independent, the process was arranged in advance on August fourteenth, nineteen, Forty, seven at eleven fifty, nine PM, the British flag was lowered, and at twelve one a. m. on August fifteenth. The Indian flag was raised, and just like that India became independent. By the way realize that is a gross simplification of the process of Indian independence, and the partition of India and Pakistan, but I will leave that for another episode. When the United States became independent colonies, breaking away from their mother. Country wasn't yet a thing. It was an extremely message drawn out process took years. There was no flag ceremony, and in fact, it wasn't even a single governable colony involved. There were thirteen. Because the process took so long. Pinpointing date for American independence isn't as cut and dry as it might be. Further countries, also declaring independence isn't the same thing as actually being independent, and if you doubt me, try declaring independence for your house from the country. Live in and tell me how that goes, so here are some possible dates for when we could and should be celebrating American independence. April nineteenth. April one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seventeen, seventy, five was the date when the whole process of independence started. This was the date of sharp heard around the world on April. Nineteenth British soldiers set out to confiscate weapons in Concord Massachusetts and the Americans fought back in the first battles of the revolutionary war. The battles of Lexington and concord to be honest were more like skirmishes, but we'll stick with the nomenclature for now. This was the line in the sand from which there was no turning back. There have been protests like the Boston Tea Party before this point, but this is where the rubber hit. The road and things got violent and blood was spilled. The starting point of the whole process is as good a point of any. If you wanted to pick a day to celebrate American independence, in fact, this is a holiday in several states called Patriots, day Massachusetts. Maine Wisconsin Connecticut and North Dakota. All Have Patriots Day as an official holiday. July.

The power of the Black Lives Matter movement
"We in wave one wave to if there is a low dose that mark an end because we're gathering of strength these questions we ask about corona virus but what if we understood social movement moments in the same way the death of George Floyd and the uprisings that followed can seem like the birth of a new social movement and the new host of possibilities disbanding at the funding police departments commemorating Juneteenth ads addressing the on going silent apart taped the systemic racism woven through the society and everything from voting rights to healthcare urban planning it seems as sudden as a lightning strike Alan Kwabena Frimpong is an activist and consultant with ad astra collective which provides tools to build social movements he says the explosion was ignited by what his group calls a trigger event or several of them the killing of George Floyd the pandemic the previous extrajudicial killings of black people these events where we can no longer be complicit with the conditions of the status quo that way in and then once the triggering event unleashes this long accumulating rage comes the heroic phase everybody's on the streets anything seems possible which leads you say to a honeymoon right people believe anything is possible that we've been dreaming of that we would like to see in our world a future without police without jails and prisons now that not only seems possible it's becoming possible so we thought that with the disbandment of the Minneapolis police department but the vote that was taken by the city council and so if in this space that possibility can live and then history tells us the honeymoon inevitably ends leading to disillusionment contraction you call it the women's March and occupier quintessential examples and likewise the first wave of black lives matter what's happening with the disillusionment sets in any time during this period we think we've failed that when the cameras turn off when there's not as much attention to the issues and mass media or even in social media we think that the movement activity has somehow ended but it hasn't it's that what is required of us as shifted or it gets to share in this phase of the cycle and it's a time to build strategy and to build organization to find unity around the issues and to figure out the infrastructure needed to be able to create the visions of the world that we actually want to live in an analogy might be that you light the grill the flames jump out of the cattle so big you could get singed but then fifteen minutes later you come back and all you see is a heap of calls but underneath it is smoldering the cycle does seem to reflect at least American history going back to the Boston tea party these kind of waves that we've seen this country has dealt with since its inception when you invoke the Boston tea party that history a card with the backdrop of slavery and the removal of indigenous folks we have to understand our ways of rebellion and Ryan I'm here in Jersey New Jersey eighteen eighty four of you have black people riding here in Newark because of the erection of what was then the school system and how black people were being locked out of participation there are the strength of events in our history that lead to these moments so let's call this the the second wave of black lives matter does the same pattern still hold I mean if this is the second honeymoon should we expect marital reality to kick and with a second loss of energy why wouldn't we we still live in a culture that upholds capitalism mmhm and that holds white supremacy the fact that we have people still talking about the reform of a police state I think it's indicative of that what feels different indicates the value of corporations who want to put out statements saying black lives matter so yeah we're and if you want to call it a second wave of black lives matter but the reality is that as we've talked about before the construction phase we really will have to ask the deep question what will be required of aspen organizer activist members of our communities to ship the material conditions are you in the process of trying to manage expectations show how the cycle works and say we're not gonna leave the news for much longer be prepared to build networks and continue to organize continue to lobby what we will need to deal with in this contraction phase is what are going to beat the alternative institutions that people can look to that people can trust and that people can believe in that show that the path to the new normal that we deserve and to me what that looks like is worker owned cooperatives credit unions to me the control of our public safety health care for all public education accessible to all those things would need to change if we're asking for the abolishment of police because what it requires of us then is to change our relationships with each other and build community with each other and that's what we're going to need to prepare for as this contraction phase comes to life and the question becomes what we choose to do that work we choose to build with people in our neighborhoods we choose to depend on them and create modalities for our safety reeking of other institutions the show is called on the media and I want to ask you about us and I'm gonna go back to occupy to do it when the protesters vanished from the public parks and went home sometimes chased away by police we in the media seized on that extra this is a sign of the movement's failure because its goals were too quixotic it's politics too fragmented and so what is the contraction phase of the cycle reflected by or influenced by the media characterizations when people are not in the streets anymore and there there is in this huge spectacle what is there left to cover America is so infatuated with the spectacle of its own violence and the trauma that ensues from may the disillusionment in the contraction of the cycle I think is a representation of what we tend to be stuck in in terms of our own habits we enjoyed the trauma of the story of the victim the perpetrator and the savior and the way we tell our views as from that have been jewel norm if so what would it look like to shift away from that and perhaps tell news that connects the dots then tells a much more nuanced and complex story that the viewers or listeners deserve to hear where people can actually show authentic stories about what is going on from a place that is moving for people that shift something for them that doesn't truncate in flag in their lives and to just these one dimensional identities there's a lot of what media frames and that then leads to some of the assumptions that get made about whatever happened to the much as whatever happens to the people organizing the rally is people are still doing that work but it may look different we in the media have focused on the tip of the iceberg the protests of the violence the repercussions but you have been talking of what's going on beneath the networks of people building power over time the organization what do you think we can do to tell the story of protest better folks in the media need to ask themselves why do we feel compelled to tell these stories in these ways what do we believe about our audience about what they're ready to hear and what they're ready to listen to we can then have a conversation about whether the human stories that need to be shared that connect the dots people think that somehow Minneapolis was just able to do this overnight but they have been in a protracted struggle for years to get to this point if media where to tell the stories of what it took to get there that would be a different kind of conversation that has different

Larry Itliong and the Great Delano Grape Strike
"When I moved to America I was a sophomore and one of the first classes I took in high school was US history. My teacher was weird. We had what he called open book tests so we didn't really have to study and he played movies during those tests. One time I think it was pirates of the Caribbean. This teaching style was so different than what I was used to back home. But that wasn't what struck me the most. It's that when we got to the part of American history set in the Philippines there was just one paragraph in our history book less than half a page dedicated to this period of American imperialism. I think that paragraph mentioned Emilio Aguinaldo who became the first president of the Philippines and the acquisition of the Philippines by the US from Spain in eighteen ninety eight. Let's it nothing in those pages talked about the bloody Philippine American war. There was no mention of the American occupation that took place for almost half a century in definitely didn't talk about Filipinos who came to America during this time not as immigrants but as nationals subjects of American empire the generation of monotones who are promised with the riches of the American dream. But who face the harsh realities of American life instead? I mean when we think about the history of the United States we say oh Boston. The Boston Tea Party. We all learn. It is White America. That's Gail Roma Santa. A writer and publisher who is the CO author of journey for Justice? A new book the chairs the story of a Filipino American labor organizer and Community Leader Left. Outta most American history textbooks the tough-talking man with a moustache glasses and sometimes cigar. Larry Leon. He was an is a Filipino. American leader who united Filipino Americans and other ethnicities Gayle Co wrote for justice with her friend. The late professor and historian Don Shula. Noma Balan- you might remember her from episodes one and two of this podcast. They both grew up in Stockton California and they didn't learn about their cities rich Filipino history until they went away to college. It's why they wrote the book. This book needs to be in schools and in libraries in the hands of our families and our caregivers so that they can say oh. I was part of American history. Obviously I didn't learn about Larry Leong in high school. I don't think I even heard about him in college. And I took Asian American studies yet. Too many Larry. It long is a Filipino. American civil rights hero a leader in that first generation of Filipinos in America and even in the diaspora he led the Delano grape strike. And people don't really know what that means and that really is a point where we had so many Filipinos and their jobs were jeopardy and they had so much to lose. Nobody had health insurance major resources. They didn't have any political clout. They were migrant farm workers on this episode chapter in American history. We should learn about in school. The story of Larry Leon and the great Delano grape strike pivotal moment in the American farm worker movement. Most people have heard that Mexican American labor leaders Cesar Chavez and Dolores. Horta were a big part of this not a lot of folks know that it was Larry it Leong and the Filipino farmworkers. Who Kick started the whole thing in the first place?

According to John Paul Jones, that January, sixty nine date at the Boston tea party as it was known was a moment of realization for the band Jones E told enemy in an interview years later as far as I'm concerned, the keys upland gig.

"Show. It's a pleasure to be with you. And I'll be glad to get back to your calls. A bit later at eight six six. Hey, LARs, that's eight six six four three nine five to seven seven. It gives me. Great pleasure to welcome back to the program. Former member of congress, medical physician and the author most recently of the revolution at ten years. Dr Ron Paul Dr politics have you back on the program. Nice to be with you again. So what is the revolution? You speak of in the revolution at ten years. There was a revolution. Attachment to our campaigns in seven away campaign as well as in twelve to two presidential races. And it was sort of a spontaneous thing that popped up. You know, with the supporters that were very very vocal and outspoken, very energetic. And they and they called it a a revolution. And I didn't object to it was usually when it was spelled it had the L O V E spelled backwards in the word revolution, which I found fascinating. Because I do believe in ideas. But I believe in nonviolent. So that was very attractive to me. There was significant for certain values, and that was my political platform, and and it really came alive in seven on on the anniversary date for the Boston tea party win spontaneously the supporters got together and raise the record amount of money on the internet, which caught everybody's attention. So. That existed, but then after twelve happened because it sort of morphed into something different. It was it was sort of blended into the tea party movement. Even though this was started. Our our system was started with. You know, the tea party celebration of Boston. And but afterwards it changed a little bit. The Republicans got involved and some of the issues change. And and people say, well, I guess that thing Ron Paul was dealing with dead and gone, and which I had a disagreement with it change. It's not exactly the change. Nothing. Stays the same. And I wanted to talk a little bit about where we were back. An well. We believe Dan, what has happened. And if if it's not the same as it was if the enthusiasm has Wayne, what do we have? And I talked about that in the book because I think what we talked about it back, then is something very important to me and to others, and that those ideas are alive and well in slightly different format. But I think in a philosophic sense the the revolution of those years ten years ago very much alive. And well, Dr Ron Paul is with me. So Dr Paul I. It would be fair to say that some of what Donald Trump brings to the presidency is proving to be revolutionary for both Republicans than Democrats. And I I just wanted you to comment on this because he's trying to change the dynamic of the way things work in Washington DC, and it seems as though he's getting pushback from both the right and the left that there's been this go along get along kind of approach to things where the Democrats have power for a while the Republicans have power for awhile while and nothing much really changes, except that the government gets bigger every single year and personal liberties get smaller is there is there anything that you find in President Trump's approach to, you know, making a change. Maybe not as revolutionary as you suggest. But a change in American government that you find you like, oh, yeah. I think there's quite a few times they he'll say things that sounds pretty good. But then I'm not sure what it'll be like the next day. So on foreign policy, for instance, we as libertarians don't believe we should be involved in all these foreign wars. And we loved the idea that we were talking to countries like Iran and Russia, and and Trump sorted talk that way about Russia, and Iran, he stayed consistent. And it's more an tag Anisim. So I think Trump is touched into understand exactly what most people understand and the people that he supported me or Bernie Sanders are others that there's something wrong, structurally, something's wrong because the lower half of the population are not doing well, they actually are getting poorer and their standard of living is going down. So there's a lot of frustration and Trump surly remembered. Able to tap into that. But I think so much of what he does is sort of tactical. You know, it's changed this policy here and there, and I'm more into changing the philosophy of government is should the role of government be. It's just not a management problem. And and and I don't like the idea that spending is not considered a serious problem. And and and I think spending is going to continue that episode sure gonna continue we're going to have more spending in the military than ever before. And we're not backing off from that civil liberties are not being protected by this administration, either when you think of sessions, he's not a civil libertarian, and he wants to accelerate the, you know, the war on drugs. So those kind of things bother me and yet, I think Trump still benefiting by understanding. The frustration of the people and speaking to them, and they hear that. And like myself, we wanna be hopeful. And we were true by quite frankly, I think the government is very much the same as it has been for fifty sixty seventy years, and that is too much government intervention in our personalized too much government intervention in the economy too much. Our government intervention in the affairs other countries. And therefore, we're we're we're at a standstill Dr Ron Paul is my guest his latest book is called the revolution at ten years. But let me ask you about that personal liberty works in your lives, especially when it comes to say drug law enforcement because right now, we have a tremendous problem with people overdosing on drugs, mostly opioids, the daily death rate is one hundred and fifty people who die each and every day because of drug overdoses in America. So what do we do about respecting personal liberty while we're also told that one hundred fifty Americans are overdosing and dying every day. And there are people who want you to do something about that. But would but how do you do that without getting in the way of people's personal liberties to take whatever drugs, they wanna take? Well, of course, we've had the war on drugs has been there for a long time. It really accelerated in the seventies with the Republicans in office. And we can we talk about what is called the ill-illegal. The street drugs. People overdosing certainly that was the case went under prohibition. And the twenties. It was a horror the alcohol become became more, contaminated more people died, and it was delivered by you know, criminals and and and today the opioid epidemic. All of a sudden, it's getting a lot of attention. But guess what those legal tribes the government regulates those in there about prescription. And I think the drug industry, the people who make money off this I have interfered with the use of the drugs, and people are encouraged to tell you, I think it's it's criminal. What is happening, but not criminal in the sense that we need more government. It was the government involved in this. And the fact that opioids has always been legal, you know. And these are these are drugs that doctors prescribed so that has hardly helped so libertarian would argue the case for. You know, you have to be educated. We don't we don't sit around and worry about when the government's gonna teach all our kids how to cross the street or not get turned or drink poisons and all the things that they have to do to take care of themselves. We teach some these things though somewhere along the way, you know, our system has not done very good job. But I think the worst thing we can do is have more authoritarian ISM because we take prompt me know, especially when it had to do more with marijuana pretty harmless kids doing things throwing them in prison. And it was a disaster costs a lot of money and the kids came out of the out of the prisons much worse off than I ever work. And and now now is is a.

"The universe. Just site of the Boston tea party. It's red white and blue. Definitely. Welcome to the Adriatic Cohen show. You listen to the Boston Herald radio, I'm Adriana with John chatting are awesome producer Christian for going. Great to be back in studio with you all. We got a lot going on the news, obviously, we all watched President Trump's speech in prime time last night addressing the nation laying out a very clear case why we need to secure our border. He talked about the southern border. We talked about the crisis that's undergoing underway. Whether that's an overwhelming backlog of asylum seekers to drug runners to a criminals to sex, traffickers, you name it. We need to battened down the hatches to keep bad people out of our country. And of course, America again is a welcoming nation we let in approximately one million immigrants each and every year, but they come in legally as they should. And so yes, the statue of liberty is a symbol of the United States for a welcoming symbol for immigrants, but they're supposed to come in legally not illegally. Perhaps a Chuck Schumer miss that. Through over the years. But that said as you'll notice Democrats right now are working overtime to downplay the crisis at the border because they don't wanna fun Trump's wall for one reason and one reason only they don't want to give him a political win which would help him get reelected in two thousand twenty. They don't want to do that. So they want to downplay the problem at the border, and it doesn't matter. If more comes into our country. It doesn't matter if more terrorists and gangs like MS thirteen come in. They're willing to take that risk to not to deny Trump an opportunity to get that political win. And I think it's despicable. You know, our national security is is should be the prime primary importance for any politician. That's their duty to protect the country. And there's a time and a place to put politics aside and the security our nation is one of those times. I mean, look what happened with September eleventh. It was under twenty terrorists that executed that attack which. Short money. I mean, we cannot afford to allow even one terrorist and or to look to terrorists did at the Boston marathon bombing, you know, even just one or two three people can cause enormous harm to our country and destroy lives. I mean, I we've covered it here sap with the San Bernardino gun attack a couple years ago at jihadi bright that was only done by two people and look at the carnage there. I mean, we there's no room for at the border. And I believe we need to Batten down the hatches. And and what if I were speaking to Democrats now, I would say, look if we didn't have a crisis at the border, and we don't have a crisis, then why on earth have you agree to fund? Security at the border to the tune of billions of dollars. You just like lighting a match to American taxpayer dollars. No, obviously there was a need otherwise, otherwise why on earth. Would you sign off on that? I think what the Democrats are trying to do the long game. Here is that they're looking at if they can just kick the can down the road. And if this wall doesn't get funded built that when you get the twenty twenty which is not that far away. It's going to be a major political laws for the president because his base which could get them over the top and twenty twenty may need to even expand that. But if even ten percent of his base gets turned off by the fact that he didn't build his wall. He could end up losing twenty twenty election the same way that president George H W Bush lost in one thousand nine hundred eighty two when he said, no new taxes, and then we got to nineteen ninety two and there were taxes implemented, an increased on the American people, and that perhaps cost him that election in one thousand nine hundred. So that's probably what the long game is that the Democrats? I do think that they should have gotten this done earlier. Yes. While the Republicans had control the house if it was something the president really wanted to push forward. This should have been one of the very first items that he sat down with with speaker Ryan at the time and try to get something done. And now, the Democrats controlling the house it's going to be that much more difficult allies still have more hope for President Trump and speaker Pelosi getting things done than I do President Trump and former speaker Ryan, I just do I think that they'll be able to negotiate. I think there's a level of respect between the two of them. You have not heard him disparage her at all, right? I mean, he's got nicknames for everybody makes fun of everybody. But he doesn't speaker Pelosi. So I do have high hopes that they can sit down. I think the best bet maybe just have the two of them. Sit down forget Chuck Schumer for a moment just have dancy Pelosi and President Trump's sit down, and I think that the level heads will will come forward. Right. And I think it definitely will agree with you sap. It will hurt Trump in the network election. If he doesn't get the wall built because this was a key campaign promise. And although he has done a great job. Keeping other campaign promises. This was a big one. It was he he promised to repeal and replace ObamaCare that hasn't happened. And he he he promised to build a wall, and that Mexico would pay for it. But even if we just put aside who's paying for it. And who's not the wall was a is a big symbolic win for him or loss if he doesn't pull through and I've written columns on this. And I really think this is do or die day for Trump. He really does have to secure the border because a legal immigration was the leading thing. He ran on member. When he came down the escalator, he's he talked. He said, you know, Mexico's not sending the best people, etc. That was his biggest message. Right. I mean, how many times have we heard it? He said it two hundred times in rallies. So it's not like this is the nineteenth thing that he brought up in his campaign. This was kind of thing and an appeal to some people they backed him, and if he's not able to put forth the wall in some sort of even a moderate plan. They're going to be turned off by that in that could be enough to just tell the numbers against the press. Rather in favor of the president because he was close election and twenty twenty and quite frankly, I think you're gonna see a lot of close elections. Anyway, the way the country's splintered especially in swing states. Like at this point, Wisconsin in Michigan and Pennsylvania and Ohio in about six or seven other states. So yeah, this this is big about politics. That's what the Democrats are trying to do. I mean, that's what both sides of always done. But you just hope that they just can sit down and get the government opened up again because that's going to start the impact people. Right. I mean. No one really gets concerned until it gets them concerned. So that's what we're gonna have to see hopefully, the government gets reopened, and we can go forward ahead and get some things done here. Right. And I think that Democrats are really throwing Latino voters under the bus because why should say voters because if they're here illegally they shouldn't be voting, but I should say they're really throwing the Latin community under the bus because given that President Trump is in a bit of a quagmire. Now, he's kind of Loxton on this whole wall issue and not being able to get the funding at least of right now. This is the time for them to dangle DACA in front of them and say Trump has said over and over and over again, we're willing to negotiate and I think he would come to the table, and and do some sort of Dhaka deal, and he answered the Democrats now are missing a huge opportunity to secure the future of potentially millions of dreamers living in the shadows here in the United States. And this is something that Trump should point out. I wish you would have pointed this out in his speech last night. I'm willing to make a deal even when it comes to protecting dreamers. Even though that statement would have turned off some Trump's hardcore too far to the right base. That absolutely is one hundred percent against amnesty any form, but it really would have put out a signal to Latino voters. Look, I'm trying to help you out here. I'm willing to absolutely contemplates some sort of. Amnesty deal. But you know, the Democrats refused to negotiate with me. One hundred percent they're being held hostage at that point. Right because that's impacting their lives and everybody's bickering over a wall. It's almost like a married couple that decides to end their marriage because the husband wants to add a bathroom, and the wife doesn't want to have a bathroom, and it leads to divorce and the kids feeling the effects of that over something like a bathroom, right, which is common sense. It should've just pass through. So we're very excited to welcome on the Adriatic show on Boston Herald radio Mark ladder. Mark is a former special assistant to the president and former press secretary to vice vice president Pence, thank you so much. Joining us, Mark. How are you? I'm doing well. Thanks for having me. Great. Thanks so much for making the time. We'd like to get your reaction to the president's speech last night. Do you think he made ineffective appeal to the American people why we do need to enhance border security? I really do. And what the American people hurt last night for the president is the same thing. I heard Pam when I was at the White House Monday meeting with him vice president secretary Nielsen in that we do have humanitarian crisis, and it just amazes me that Democrats can call this a manufactured crisis. When you last summer, they were all up in arms and tears about you know, families at children's vibrant and separation from thanks. We now have and Doctors Without Borders has confirmed one third nearly one third of the women who are coming up to our southern border are being sexually assaulted. Seventy percent of the women and children and men who are making that trip are victims of violence. This is a humanitarian crisis. Let alone talking about the drugs that are four across the southern border and coming into our country poisoning. I've neighborhood. I just can't see how anyone can turn a blind. And not think that that's a crisis. And absolutely. And you know, the Democrats have been on board with fighting the opioid crisis statewide off across the United States, and and on the federal level as well. And so they realize we do have a drug epidemic in this country. And and they've signed legislation to fight the opioid crisis like the twenty first century cures act and more. So don't they why don't they see the problem here with the drug drug trafficking through the poorest border? I mean, I think it's just common sense that we know drugs are flowing in. If you seal off the border, we hire more border agents. We get more technology. We can more effectively combat the war on drugs. And here's the thing. You're absolutely right and the president's request, and it was put into a letter to congressional leaders over the weekend from the acting director of OEM be included five hundred seventy one million dollars for technology, and for people at the ports of entry where many of the drugs and things are being n people are being smuggled through through the ports of entry. Well, here's the thing. I've got asked if if we're able to shut that down or significantly reduce that, and we're going to do that what these drug dealers are in smugglers are not just going to throw their hands up and say, well, there goes my business. I had a great run. They're gonna find the next week this link, right?.

Not only is it taxation without representation it is immigration without representation. You can take that one and go to the Bank with the because no one's ever used. It immigration without representation will result in something much bigger than the Boston tea party. I can guarantee you every poll that has recently been done across the political spectrum.

The Blasio doesn't want to accept it. None of the power structure on the democrat side will accept it. Because their power base is the illegal alien.

It's a new form of slavery. So there are other stories that I can give you them. Let's see Gavin Newsom to take steps to provide healthcare coverage to illegal aliens who are young.

The United States is a national project that came at an enormous cost to native people the US government removed native Americans from their lands an authorized more than fifteen hundred wars attacks and raids on them before European started to call an is there were millions of native Americans living here by the end of the eighteen hundreds just a few hundred thousand what did it do for the holiday or even for America to start putting Indians in that picture in that image of this holiday about giving. Thanks, I think it's a way of sort of processing how to think about the country. You know, what's different about the United States beginning in the seventeenth century through the through the Boston tea party, for example in seventeen seventies. You find this festive nation with Indians by the rebels by the revolution is that's another flashback to US history class for me. I remember drawings of men protesting Britain's taxation without representation, they dumped chests of tea into the harbor and we're dressed as native Americans. And historian say the revolutionaries knew that they would be easily identified even a native American dress. They did it anyway to separate themselves from the English. I sort about the Boston tea party. I soon it was kind of a one off. It was just a disguise yourself. It was kind of a joke. It was. But there was this incredible fascination with native Americans by the American revolutionaries and people basically saying, we're different we are in this new place and part of what makes us different is that in some ways, we're like American Indians, if you take Indian side of the equation in this country, you know, basically English is just like a really low terrible camping trip. Right. What's different about it? If it's about recreating what existed in England Smith mentioned something few times during our conversation. Whether it was the colonial era the American revolution. Or the mid nineteenth century Americans have been fascinated with native Americans and their lifestyles, their clothing and weapons even as they stripped native peoples of their lands and their rights and that interest holds to the present day sports teams still used. Native Americans as low goes and the advertising industry has long slapped their images onto products that have nothing to do with native Americans. We're talking about things like brake fluid Landau lakes butter stuff. That's pretty old that has Indian imagery on it. Could you ever imagine a start up today taking Indian imagery and putting it on their brand? Yeah. Clearly in would be great sensitivity that I think the highpoint of where you see that imagery particular products is really the mid twentieth century mohawk. Airlines is a new chief in the sky. So it's about an airline. That's flown by Indians. Maybe a plane with some Aeros stuck in the cargo door. That's funny. What does she get? Several Indian puns. So nobody would do that now.

He goes through like, oh, and the French will have to deal with their children being run over by Royal people, and the Spanish will throw off their yokes and everyone from Europe. One every man in Europe. We'll get to stand up because we did a good job crest and and there's no mention of the the literal enslaved people that we see in this book which are included. Or the rest of the colonies at that time. I don't know where we are in the history of like, I guess Britain has an outlawed slavery yet like because if it's still in the colony, so were before that because I know Britain got rid of it before we did. So yeah, there were like, you know, women or there's just a lot of not standing up for for for people, but I guess from like a why? Because it is like it's written for a younger audience. It has a teen as a main character. It has this kind of like pretty easily digestible point, which is that you're gonna, you're gonna fight. You're gonna give up something. I think you pointed that out to injure your in each, give up part of yourself. That is part of what you have to offer the world to to fight for other men and inspire them. Yeah. All right. I'm gonna like I do wanna get into the plot. I really do. I swear. But there's too much of it will be, okay, I want to address because you know, I'm gonna. I'm gonna talk like current events a little bit, but there have been a lot of protests and things that had been criticized for being either violent or people being open to the suggestion violence in retaliation for having their human rights trampled upon. And there have been a couple of instances property has been damaged, and there's all kinds of blowback to that and people claiming that this isn't the right way to protest and that this isn't acceptable. It's not the American way and like reading this could not stop laughing because do they know what happened or is it just like what kind of history were these people talk? Because that's how everything began was. Like bashing, the windows of people shops in taking their stuff and throwing it in the harbor, and they were careful to only destroy the very thing that they were protesting against specifically in the scene of the Boston tea party. Nevertheless, that's like thousands of dollars worth of property that has been destroyed and we celebrate that. That's something that we take pride in as Americans that we did this. But you know, they were white. So it was fine. Dudes in the seventeen seventies dressed as Indians. Cool, great. And then we won't talk about making bad like old. Walt Disney, cartoon, Indian, speak engine, speak, like whatever horrible thing you want to call it be. It's an interesting point because like the version of that that we get, I think in like school is the sanitize sorta noble version like, oh, if if we just gotten representation exchange for our tax money than you know the than it would have been fine. But like people in Washington DC who pay taxes without having representation in congress, they're not burn down a Starbucks or anything like. And yet you're seeing like contemporary state, legislatures, try to like pass laws that like. You are liable for, you know, the police pay or whatever. Like if you break a single pane of glass like you're liable for all the police pay that. Was put in during a protest or something like it's like the all of the stuff that happened when in the I, I think like around the very first women's March in DC. A lot of those folks have actually been cleared in court, but they were like, maybe I think it all got thrown out and they get all got thrown out. Yeah, but a lot of that was based on what you're saying tasha, which is like property damage, and you know, tax payer money wasted. It's like shutt-. I..
"boston tea party" Discussed on Listen Money Matters
"Like they always talk about like the stamp act and the boston tea party but a lot of the initial rebellions had to do with like taxation on rum so there's a lot of interesting things about that yeah like religion and alcohol or are two very fundamental things in our country's history so after nineteen fifty five we added you know in god we trust fast forward to nineteen sixty nine we got rid of all large dominating bills which i remember like hearing things about this when i was a kid and it's still just kind of baffles me because the money was so more meaningful back then but there were five hundred thousand dollar five thousand dollar ten thousand dollar bills yeah existed i mean there's actually i saw a picture of one hundred thousand dollar bill although i didn't have enough energy to research of that was a real thing but dude could you imagine today carrying a ten thousand dollar bill in your pocket let alone when that she was like yeah it okay so there was a hundred thousand dollar bill those printed for one year actually it was print now for one year it was printed for a month extra magin leaving that in your pocket when you do the wandry wait there wasn't a laundry back then oh shit laundry they just use a washboard yeah yeah it says here that that was used for transactions between the federal reserve banks so like it's not something that you would have been walking around with in your pocket so a one more day thing that maybe excellently transitions in nineteen seventyone our good friend nixon busted the gold standard in back in the day on every dollar it literally said that you could trade this in for gold and a he he broke that tie basically it was like all dollars you could've traded for gold while you should have did it yesterday 'cause you can't anymore crazy yes that basically means like the global economy is no longer tied to any physical asset which is like so we still have even though these dollars aren't tradable for gold you know go buy some pizza.
