"It's really bad. I go out with friends and you're sitting with them at a restaurant and they're on their phones. They're just scrolling through social media. You go on dates and people just bring it. Is that right? Oh yeah, of course, definitely. And you know what? That is so unclassy, God. Only you would observe that and you're totally right. And that is just the tip of the iceberg as far as the lack of classiness. Well, by the way, I'm sure your generation doesn't even use the term classy. No, they don't. They wouldn't know it if it hit them in the face. That's correct. I know it because it would be objectionable because it implies that there are classes. Hmm. And it implies that some people are classless. Yes. And you can't make any moral judgments of anyone. That's right. What did you just, we were saying, oh, dates. Oh, okay. So I've spoken about this on Dennis and Julie with regard to my peers at Harvard. And not just picking on Harvard, but kind of like elite schools in general. And I said, I came up with this line a few years ago, and I know I've said it on Dennis and Julie, that when so much goes into the resume, there's not much left in the person. And I observed that a lot in my high school and college where these people and you go, oh my God, they started their own organization and they built homes in Japan. And then you meet them and it's like they are the dullest human beings. And again, I, you know, I have like the best friends at Harvard. I'm not saying everyone, but there was a large, and you go, oh my God, these people must be like the superstars. So here's, here's the analogy. When so much goes into the social media profile, there's nothing left in the person. They're both true. Sorry, go ahead. You can see I'm animated about this subject. No, you have a right to be. So you and I just had a long discussion about this actually. Uh, I was blessed beyond words to be given wisdom at a very early age. I take no credit for it. And so as I, as I said to you privately, and I'll say now publicly, I did no schoolwork throughout high school. I didn't give a damn what college I went to. I ended up at Columbia for graduate school because in college I did give a damn, but I didn't care about where I went undergraduate. I cared about living life. I, I knew, do you know that I wrote, do you, what do you, what did they have today? Did you, did you have to write an essay or a composition on some theme in English class? Oh yes. Yeah. Write two pages, let's say. Two pages, I wish. Okay. Well, so all, of course, all of ours was handwriting. We didn't have at the time, we didn't have any computers, you know, word processors. I wrote in my sophomore year in high school and I, I, I hope I still have it actually. I'd love to show it to you. Uh, the theme was I want to prove George Bernard Shaw wrong. The youth is wasted on the young. That's right. You did, Dennis. You proved him wrong. I, I, from what I know, from what I know about you, obviously I didn't know you. I wouldn't have proved him wrong if I just did all my homework. I would have wasted my youth. So, so I, I learned what I wanted to learn. The world, shortwave radio, the Russian language, how to conduct orchestras. I went every week to the New York Philharmonic Library. I mean, I'm an abnormal human being. What, what. I know. What kid is going to do what I just did, you know, learn Russian and how to conduct orchestras. Okay. I agree. I, I, I'm abnormal. I, I agree with that, but I, but my, my point is not that I'm abnormal, which is clear. My point is I, I knew that was not living life. Just studying for tests and doing meticulous homework. My parents thought I was, I know you didn't. Well, you got into Harvard and I got into Brooklyn College, but that's fine. I, I, I retained Dennis. Yep. Your point is you lose yourself. You do. You do. It's sad. Well, you know, it's changing so much now because, and I've talked about my high school. I mean, my high school is barely recognizable in 2023 from the, from the school I went to. Graduating 2018. Yes. Five years. It's totally different. And the, and the, the rigor that has gone down. I mean, the rigor, is it rigor or rigorousness? No, rigor is fine. Has, has gone down and, and it's so crazy. I mean, I could, I could get into it. So the exact same teachers and principals. There's been some turnover. They hired a DEI director. There's a new principal, but the old principals was pretty woke. But some of the teachers have left, but yes, there are a lot of teachers who, who remain there. And I, um, I don't, I, I don't think they think highly of me. I want to tell you about a book that Dennis says has been one of the most influential books in his life. It has been re-released George Gilder's Men and Marriage. George Gilder, who I interviewed on my show Timeless has been clear about the stakes for the family since 1974. 50 years later, the need of the hour remains. Men that take responsibility for themselves. Men who love their wives. Men who raise their own children. Men who tackle the workforce motivated by their family and the needs of others. Without fathers, our civilization will sink back into the stone age. We must bring dads back or else. Get your copy of George Gilder's classic book Men and Marriage today at dadsareback.com. If Dennis recommends it, it must be a great read. Civilization needs strong men. Without dads, we're toast. Get George's book at dadsareback.com.

"One group has decided to send a dollar a year just to make it clear what we're doing. But I'm not sending a penny to Harvard, a penny to Yale, a penny to Brooklyn College where I went to school and where I was educated. But I'm not going to contribute to bigotry and anti-Semitism just the way I wouldn't contribute if the school tolerated the Ku Klux Klan or the Nazi party or any group of that kind. The book is War Against the Jews, How to End Hamas Barbarism. I want to get into that question, but just a follow up, professor, can you can you help illustrate the psychology of the Harvard president and the people? Do they really hate Jews or is it that they are comfortable with Jew haters? I mean, or is it unclear? Well, it depends. Everybody's different. In the 1930s, Harvard welcomed Nazis. It sent delegations to a Nazi university that had just fired all of its Jewish professors. It wanted to be part of the greater European community, many of which were supportive of Nazis. It had quotas against Jews going back to the 19, 15, 19, 20 period. I don't believe these people hate Jews. They just don't want to get into a confrontation with woke students. They're terrified of students. Students today run the asylum and young faculty members run the asylum and they are encouraging students to say and do things that are anti-Semitic. And then Barack Obama joins in. He's a great role model for students. He basically issued a statement saying that the raping, the beheading, the burning of innocent people, you can understand that because life is so unbearable in the occupied territories. Well, there's no occupation of Gaza. It ended in 2005 and there's no occupation in Gaza. How does that in any way explain how people can murder and behead children? And Barack Obama ought to be ashamed of himself for making that comparison and encouraging students who admire him and support him, as I once did, but no longer do. And we have a real problem with what the elders are telling the youngers and the youngers are just swallowing the Kool-Aid, listening and babbling forth what they've been told. So, professor, Americans, especially American students, aren't exactly experts in foreign affairs. Talk through the facts here because there's so much disinformation and intentional misinformation. I know you talk about this in your book War Against the Jews. Explain Gaza, Hamas, the Palestinian Authority, Israel's relationship. And I could just go through the list, professor, but you've heard it. Open air apartheid state, you know, intentional genocide, ethnic cleansing. Take whichever one you'd like. But this is these are repeated. It's all the same. In 2005, Israel ended its occupation, not only removed every single Israeli civilian and soldier, but it even dug up the bodies of people long dead and brought them back to Israel.

"Hi, everybody. Dennis Prager in Mississippi, speaking at the University of Mississippi later today, organized by one of my favorite human beings on earth, Lee Habib. I don't say that often. We were just talking about a subject that I won't get into right now because this is so important, what I'm talking about, but so is that. Well, it's the motto of my life that there are only two races, the decent and the indecent. He believes that and I believe that. And that's the key to understanding everything in life, that there's a moral division on earth. And the Israel haters are the indecent, period. That's it. That's all you need to know. Some know this now and some are in denial. I played for you the demonstration of Palestinians and pro-Palestinian at the Sydney Opera House, Sydney, Australia, and the chant was, gas the Jews. And then they alternated that with, F the Jews. Notice it wasn't Israelis. Isn't that interesting? It wasn't Israeli. That's what Westerners are so naive. The Western liberal is not evil, the Western leftist is, but the Western liberal is so naive that they allow evil to exist. And they think, oh, it's anti-Zionist. Oh, I see. They love Jews. They don't like Zionists. So then why didn't they say gas the Zionists? They said gas the Jews. By the way, Zionist is the euphemism for Jews. Also, just for the record, there would have been a lot more Christian Zionists than Jewish Zionists, but they would hate them too. Yeah, the Jews are the indigenous people, by the way. For all those of you who celebrated Indigenous People's Day instead of Columbus Day this past Monday, do you know the indigenous people of Israel? Jews. They were there thousands of years before the word Arab was known on earth, let alone the word Muslim. You don't learn that at college. So here's a fascinating piece in the Wall Street Journal about, from the editorial board, that one of the leaders of Hamas acknowledges we didn't really give it any hoot about the Palestinians, our Palestinians. We only gave a hoot about killing Jews. Wall Street Journal editorial page, there you have it. Hamas presented the illusion that it cared about Palestinians in order to dupe Israel into putting down its guard. Then it pursued its main ambition, which is to kill as many Jews as possible. Ali Baraka also said that Hamas has a license from Russia to produce Kalashnikov bullets, and that Russia is sympathetic to Hamas and likes the war with Israel because it complicates U.S. aid for Ukraine. Oh, and Hamas will insist on a prisoner swap of American hostages for Hamas fighters in U.S. jails. When your enemies tell you that they want to kill you, believe them. That's the end of the editorial. You know how many Jews, how many liberal and left-wing American Jews didn't know this? Yeah, and then there are really sick, sick Jews who are pro-Palestinian and even defend Hamas. I mean, that's a level of sickness that I don't think you find in any other group. There was a woman, a very old woman in her 90s. A couple of years ago, I reported on her. I found her to be a human phenomenon. She was a Jewish woman who was a Holocaust survivor, and she went to Gaza to show solidarity with the Gazans. So she went, she was almost killed by the original Nazis, and she went to show support for the new Nazis. I don't know of any group I say this as a Jew, and as a committed Jew, and as a Jew who has taught Jewish history at Brooklyn College, so on the college level. And I have a book out in its third edition called Why the Jews Explaining Jew Hatred Anti-Semitism, if you will. So I have some credibility on this matter. There is no other group that produces such sick people like that. It would be like blacks producing pro-slavery. A pro-Hamas Jew is like a pro-slavery black. But it was hard for me to even mumble because I can't imagine any existed. Well, I mean, there were psychological reasons why such people exist, but that too is beyond the scope of today. Today's theme is 10-7 may have been a sea change. May have been. You never know. Because when the media starts showing you dead Palestinians, you see, like all these New York Times writers, commenters, savagery on either side is wrong. There you go. Well, there was, I guess, I don't know where these people were. I was going to say, I guess they didn't exist in World War II. They have not regarded bombing German cities as savagery and then said, oh, how can you tell the difference between the Nazis and the Americans or the Brits? They both bombed civilians. That's it. This is the mindset of a lot of these people. By the way, I have a link at my website, International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, raising money to help Jews in Israel.

"Thomas Sowell, one of the truly luminous minds of our time and gutsy. You have to have courage to be a truth pursuer in any age at any time, but especially in the last half century. His latest book is short and brilliant, Social Justice Fallacies. It's up at dennisprager.com. I'm amazed that Basic Books continues to publish Thomas Sowell. Even the publishing industry has been taken over by censorious leftists. Social Justice Fallacies. I want to go back to affirmative action, and you pointed out how it hurts those it's intended purportedly to help, especially black students, many of whom, because of affirmative action, would get into a college where they couldn't keep up with the work, not because of their color, just because of their preparation. I could not have kept up in high school with the work needed to get into an illustrious college. I ended up at Brooklyn College, eventually Columbia, but I didn't do enough work to get into a great undergraduate school. It's not a reflection on the person, but it is a fact. If, in fact, affirmative action has hurt blacks more than it has helped them, why is virtually every black organization pro-affirmative action? Wow, that's a great question. I think that the pattern I see in studying other groups in this country and in other countries around the world leads me to the conclusion that leaders of poor groups who want to get ahead are often a handicap. I think it's much easier to illustrate to show the opposite. If you look at groups such as Asian Americans in the United States today who were in poverty, let's say, 100 years ago, and very much powerless, but who have now become more prosperous than the general population, you would be hard pressed to name even one leader of those people. Leaders do not produce success, except for the leaders themselves. One of the reasons is the leaders, one of their key ideas is that all your problems are caused by other people. If that is the case, why in the world should you knock yourself out in order to get ahead knowing that these evil people are going to stop you anyway? There was a story that President Obama made a few years back, talking about some black young man who wanted to become a pilot. He said, you know, I thought at first that I would join the Air Force and become a pilot, but then I realized that these white people will not let a black man become a pilot. And as of the time he said that, there were not only black pilots in the Air Force, there were black generals in the Air Force. But this victimhood ideology that they are teaching has done him far more harm than any racists are capable of doing to him under current conditions.

"I always remind people, I wrote a book on antisemitism, taught Jewish history at Brooklyn College. The Nazis' primary appeal was economic. In 1932, the last free elections of Germany until after World War II, he toned down his Jew hatred, which was the most animating impulse in Hitler's life. He hated Jews more than he hated the United States, Britain, even Russia. That was what animated him, but it is not the primary thing they campaigned on. They campaigned on the economy. When you see your savings become worthless, you know how dispiriting that is, demoralizing, the sense of utter and total hopelessness, the belief that your life was a waste? With all that work, and to see that your currency, in their case the Reichsmark, in our case the dollar, becomes less and less worth anything. Because truly destructive people just believe, print baby, print baby. People take out loans for college, we'll pay your loan for you. Because the people who did pay their loans, like my wife, they're suckers. That's right. Every leftist who supports the government taking over college loans believes that my wife and everyone else who paid off a loan, a student loan, is a sucker. How else can you understand that? You paid it off? You didn't wait for a Democrat to be elected? You paid that loan off? How stupid can you get? The Democrats will come into power, you won't have to pay your loan. Aside from the economic disaster, it is moral disaster. It is a statement to the American people, wait enough time to vote in a left wing president, which means a Democrat today, any Democrat. Joe Manchin is not a leftist. His chance of being president is equivalent to mine. And that's the lesson. Why be financially responsible when the government can bail you out? Why apply for citizenship to the United States when you can just cross the border? Why follow any law? Why not steal $950 worth of goods from a store in California when up to $950 is just a misdemeanor? It's sort of like jaywalking. They won't bug you. Therefore, what we have is this massive crisis of retail theft. That is the legacy of the despicable Democratic Party. When you see D, think despicable. Does that mean that every Democrat is despicable? No, no more than it means that every Republican is a saint. The party is despicable, but not every single person who votes it. Every person who votes it is doing something spectacularly destructive to the United States of America. It's a phenomenon. It is a phenomenon. The number of Republicans I know. No, I can't say it's a large number, but I know some who, because they have such contempt for Donald Trump, decided to vote Democrat. I hate Trump. Therefore, I will vote for the party that is destroying my country. Get that? Never think for a moment that intellectual and wise are related. They're completely unrelated. Completely unrelated. The odds are if you got a PhD, you are a fool. The odds are some are not, and I'm talking about outside of STEM, outside of science, technology, engineering, and math. Well, here's another ode to the Democrats, which just showed up here. Starbucks to close seven San Francisco locations in coming weeks. I haven't been to San Francisco in, I don't know how long, maybe a year or whatever. I live in California. I don't get there much. I get to Minnesota more than I get to San Francisco. I get to England more than I get to downtown Los Angeles. How's that? I think I've been in Poland more often recently in the last few years than I have downtown Los Angeles. Seven locations. But here's the charm. If there were an election, a Democrat would win again. Is there an example of suicidal voting that is anywhere analogous to the voting for the Democratic Party in any major city? I can't think of any, to be honest. It is truly a form of fiscal, no, forget fiscal, just cultural. The suicide of a city. Seven more Starbucks. Well, you already know about Target and CVS. I don't know, as I said, I don't know what's left in San Francisco. Maybe fecal cleaners. That should be a booming industry.

"But, you know, it was it was very prescribed in college, it was very prescribed. And now it's like you can move to Montana and become a ski instructor if you want to, or you can go where, you know, you can never get married, you can get married. There's in other words, there's no longer the prescribed path. And I think for for for me and some of my peers being just thrown out like that without your next accomplishment ahead of you is difficult because you have to figure out who you are, what you want. Did you have that? Well, you could now go to the ladies room and come back and I'll still be talking because I have so much to say about that. First of all, you asked me, did I have this realization of the transition from college to real life? So I, I don't know if I laughed on camera or not, but I did. Well, I saw you. Well, so I'll tell you why I laughed. I had the opposite of college experience. My college was real life. There was no different, almost virtually no difference between my college life and real life. I, I didn't, I missed most classes. I did very well, but I, they didn't care about attendance. I did, I did my papers and I did my exams. The third year I was in England. There was during that time I was sent to the Soviet Union by the Israeli government. It's not like I had not been in real life during college. And, you know, I've told you the very, very funny Prager family story. One day I was so many, my first years, cause it was Brooklyn College. My parents lived in Brooklyn. I lived with my, at my parents' home. I wasn't dorming at school. There was no dorm at Brooklyn College. It was all commuter. So my, I said to my mother one, one day, I love, I truly love this story because it so describes me and, and my iconoclastic personality. I said to her, mom, I'm off this week. And totally seriously, she looked at me and said, oh, I thought you were off last week. She didn't even know when I had school because I, I missed so many classes and because I would spend so much time in Manhattan going to cultural things and bookstores and concerts and so on. So there was very little difference between real life, quote unquote, and college life. The next arena that you raised was what again? Because I really did want to comment on that too. That you define your own happiness. Oh, that's right. Okay. This is critical. This is really critical. So I am about as much my own person as you know me. I am my own man. I, I marked to my own drummer, et cetera. But I want to tell you something. I did have a prescribed life and thank God I did. I knew I would get married and have children. Like, you know, that you will get up tomorrow.
'Scalia: Rise to Greatness, 1936-1986' With James Rosen
"So this book Scalia rise to greatness really is the most in depth treatment of Scalia's life. It benefits from a wealth of documentary and personal sources that were either overlooked by or unavailable to his previous biographers. One such source is a secret oral history of his life that justice Scalia conducted in Supreme Court chambers with an interviewer in 1992, and which is now being published for the first time in these pages. And so Scalia was born in New Jersey. He moved when he was 5 to queens. He loved queens. He grew up in a multi ethnic neighborhood playing stick ball and what part of the queen since I grew up in Queens, I have to ask. Elmhurst queens. Okay. My people are from elmhurst. This is kind of amazing to me thinking of him growing up in LA. I feel the synchronicity coursing through me right now. It's actually, I don't know, I'm touched by that. Wow. So, and he was, as you say, devout Catholic, his father was an Italian immigrant who came to the United States not knowing English with only $400 in his pocket in 1920. His mother was the daughter of Italian immigrants. They both wound up becoming teachers, his mother in elementary school teacher and Scalia's father, a Professor of romance languages at Brooklyn college for 30 years. Now, between the liturgy of the Catholic Church itself and the reverence for text that he inherited from his parents and specifically his father, a romance languages professor who was leery of translation from one language to another and its ability perhaps to warp the original meaning of text, Scalia grew up with from all of these influences, a profound reverence for the inviolability of sacred texts. He went to Jesuit institutions for high school and college, Xavier high school in New York City, which was a rare hybrid of a military academy run by Jesuits. And then he went to Georgetown university in both places, he was top of his class Magna cum laude at Harvard Law School top 5 of his class there. He had an incredible prodigious capacity for hard work,
Alan Dershowitz Describes What Has Eroded in America
"Suppose has slipped such that we are capable of falling into something like a Salem witch trial or something that you hear about, people being accused in East Germany by their relatives. In other words, that has really not been part of our history as a country. What do you believe has been slipping or eroding such that this is possible? Well, I'm a little older than you, so I grew up during the McCarthy period. And I remember very vividly being Brooklyn college when the president of the college wouldn't allow communists who to speak on the campus or to teach. And I thought against it then I was a virulent anti communist. I hate communism. I think it's one of the great evils of the world. But I defended their right. And people who represented communists were trashed and were canceled and were seeing a repeat of this. The country has fallen into a tremendous divide, everything is one side or the other. There are no civil libertarians left. You're either on one side, you're on the other. I defend president Trump on the floor of the Senate, even though I voted against him twice, and I'm regarded as a facilitator of Trump the way Jerry mccarthyism, lawyers were regarded as facilitators. Larry David comes over to me on the show Mark and start screaming your despicable because of my representation of Trump and other things. Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of the president of the United States, the niece of Ted Kennedy, who I represented. Says to me at a dinner party, if I knew you had been invited, I wouldn't have come.

We appreciate you. We love you. Okay, so welcome to Loki, poetry hour. What was your experience reading this collection of poetry? Yeah, I found this poetry collection in a bookstore in Bruges. While exploring with Victoria and I immediately dropped the rating that I was supposed to be doing to start this book and I can't really binge a poetry book. It's like too dense. There's too many. You have to think about each word so hard and your brain can't handle as much. So I read a little bit every night for like two a week or two and I loved it even though I didn't know what was going on half the time. I like that there were fragments of a larger family story that we could piece together. I love the way he sort of plays with form and point of view and multiple languages. Like he's really experimenting and doing it very, very well. Yeah, I didn't always understand where we were or whose body we were in. But I felt so drawn in and captivated anyway. I was just like, yes, I'm here for the ride. Ocean Wong. Take me or wherever we're going. His skill is incredible and truly devastating in the best way and I had a great time. Yeah, what about you? Yes, I knew we were reading this book for literally months. And I just last week walked down to the bookshop to finally pick up a copy and so I did the I was really excited to finally have it and also felt like, oh my gosh, I need to start reading now. So I did that little dance where you're like trying to read while you walk and it was like a beautiful fall day and it was the sun was out and I was just so happy to be back in Chicago and but then I felt like I might get hit by a car. So after one poem I decided to wait until I was seated. So that's how I started reading it. And so yeah, I just read it over several sittings and lost like four days or so and I had one particularly cozy night I was under blanket in a quiet old house that I was staying at and it was just like the perfect vibe and I recently set up my bookshelf in my new apartment and I made a separate stack of my poetry collections. I've usually just like interspersed them alphabetically within my books but now I think I wanted to separate out by genre and be reminded that I have some poetry collections I enjoy reading. So yes, I'm excited to have this on the shelf and to revisit it. And yeah, I enjoyed it. I feel like this author ocean boring is one of those people where you've heard the name and you're like, oh, I've got to read that. Exactly. I was talking about an amazing he is, but do you have it read it yet? I know. He was in my, just like consciousness without me even realizing it. Yeah. When I read the poem on earth, we're briefly gorgeous. Which is a poem in this collection night sky with exit wounds. I was like, where have I heard this before? And I wasn't familiar with the poem and I was so confused. I looked it up and sure enough, on earth, we're briefly gorgeous is also the name of his novel that came out semi recently. I think the last couple of years. And so it's been in every bookstore everywhere. And with a name like ocean Wong, like you just, it just sticks out. I don't know anyone else named ocean. And so it's like, oh, and then everyone's talking about it, you see it on bookstagram, and it just like lives in your consciousness until you realize, oh wait, I haven't actually read any of this poetry. I should probably get on that. So yes, if you've heard of him and you're like, maybe I should figure out what everyone's talking about. Here's your invitation to join us on this journey. Yeah. So a little bit about our author. Wong was born in Saigon, Vietnam, and raised in Hartford, Connecticut, in a working class family of nail salon and factory laborers. There is a few really good interviews with him in The Guardian and this quote kind of gives a little more of the backstory of his family that we also get in snippets throughout the poetry collection. So this is a quote from that interview. In his telling Wong's life story begins two generations before he was born. When his American grandfather, a Michigan farm boy who quote wanted to be Miles Davis, joined the U.S. Navy with his trumpet in his backpack and was posted to Vietnam, where he fell in love with quote an illiterate girl from the rice paddies. Later, the article says, he says his grandparents were married with three daughters when his grandfather decided to visit his family in the U.S., and was wrong footed by the fall of Saigon. Quote, my life and my mother's life wouldn't have happened without the war. But despite all this, two people loved each other and the big lesson for me as an artist is that life is always more complicated than the headlines allow. Poetry comes in when the news is not enough. And this was a really, I thought a really pivotal point not only in his life and it becomes kind of a focus that comes back throughout the collection, but just really monumental, like his grandfather just decided to take a trip home, but because of international and domestic affairs like tore their family apart in his later years after he emigrated to the U.S. Wong did get a chance to build a relationship with his grandfather. Fong's mother had him when she was 18 and not long after that, a police officer noticed that she was a mixed race in her family was forced to flee the country. So they were evacuated to the Philippines where they lived in a refugee camp. The photo on the front of the book is actually from when they were staying in the refugee camp in the Philippines. And ocean was two years old at this point. So they lived in the refugee camp for a little while before receiving asylum in the U.S., and that's where he was raised in Connecticut. So vlog was educated at Manchester community college before transferring to pace university to study international marketing without completing his first term. I think he was literally there like two months. Oh my God. He dropped out of business school and enrolled at Brooklyn college where he graduated with a BA in 19th century

"I actually I almost did a tweet today. And I didn't want to start shit because people, everyone on Twitter is just so uptight. Deadline. But what would have been the most fun realistic LeBron trade today? Like affiliate just said, we can't get James Harden fuck it. Curry for LeBron and just like what people are reacting to that. That would be incredible. Yeah. They're like, what other fun LeBron James? 'cause it would have to be a team that's a contender, right? Honestly, like if there was some way to get LeBron to Cleveland for the Sexton love and whatever else that you need to make weight, it would just be so awesome to see him go back and it's like, he goes from AD in Westbrook to Garland and mobley and just gets completely rejuvenated by going home again. I know it would never happen, but it is very, very, very intoxicating. Was are we sure Cleveland? Right now. No, Dan Gilbert wants no parts of that. He's finally put together his first ever winner without LeBron James. I don't think he'd wanted he would have signed off on that. He wants his credit for this team. At this point, I've always wondered, you know, when things were going sideways when magic was quitting and it was looking bleak for the Lakers there and at the end of that first LeBron yeah, I was wondering what would happen if the Lakers were just like, you know what we're done with this whole thing, we're just gonna trade LeBron and just be a regular team and start with young guys and I just wondered, what if they did like a Charlotte? What did they trade LeBron to like a crappy market? That wasn't Cleveland, right? He didn't want any parts of. And I was, you know, I was just thinking about stuff like Sacramento or possibly Memphis or New Orleans. Like, that's what I was thinking at the end of that season. I wonder if a team got spiteful, like the Lakers. And was just like, we're going to trade you to the highest bidder and we're not going to take any of your opinions into account what that would be like for LeBron to just be powerless in a situation just be shipped off. Look, if he went to Atlanta, he's like, oh, yeah. Atlanta. Atlanta, Atlanta of 2019, though. This Atlanta freaking good situation for him right now. Yeah, I guess I'm thinking like, what would be a trade that he would kind of talk himself into, even though they traded. He would definitely not talk himself into his Orlando Magic. Could you ever. But even though he had his grumbles about them the other night, it would be like, LeBron I'm Memphis would be amazing. I can't believe we're actually doing like 5 minutes on this. I think this is gonna be such a good time. But LeBron on Memphis. Would be like, do I need to move to Memphis? What if Brooklyn college then said, we'll give you Kyrie and the two first round picks we've gotten for LeBron. I think the Lakers say no. KFC.

"To protect your family Get a power of attorney if you want to talk to us about getting a power of attorney done. We can do that again. Everybody who's almost everybody really should have about attorney whether we have restrictions. But if you're married, you definitely should have a power of attorney. And again when I say everybody make sure that whoever you put on there you can trust if there's nobody you can trust. That's another question. And we've got to deal with that from there. Now. Then let me ask you a few questions. We always like to get into the background. Where did you grow up? I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, in fact, not not far from from the office in Brooklyn, just a couple of miles away. Now we've been talking about Norwegian Norwegian Day Whatever. When? When you were a boy. Did the Norwegian Day parade go down Eighth Avenue where you live near where you live. I vaguely remembered, but yes, it did. Yes, it did. Yeah. Might have times have changed. Yeah. Yeah, I don't think that too many Norwegians on Eighth Avenue anymore. Where'd you go to high school? I went to high school Bishop Ford High School and then, uh, after Bishop Port went to Brooklyn College And law school law School. I went to Sunni Buffalo, which is the State University of New York at Buffalo. And, uh, while at Buffalo, they had a They had a tax program there. I decided to, uh To try it out. And it turns out it consisted of several tax courses. And I figured I'd go ahead and each each course that I took. I like I like more than a prior one. So I went ahead and I completed the tax program there. And, uh, as luck would have it. After that, I found that there was a a master's tax program. That was offered for lawyers that the N y U New York University was offering. So Ah, I went ahead. I applied for that program and I went ahead and completed a master's in tax after I got my law degree. You know, a lot of people would be shaking their heads right now. Why would somebody gotta met want to get a master's attack and that most lawyers are very adverse to tax You know, I've been I've been asked that question before. Well, I remember at the time thinking, um and I just thank you, but seeing the taxes affect all of our lives. You know, there's no escaping in one form or another taxes affect our lives. And so I went ahead and pursued it. And I'm glad I did. I learned a lot and as we know here from the practice that we have here We help clients with many different types of taxes. You know whether they're a state taxes, trust taxes, Uh, personal income taxes, capital gains taxes. So, um, I was happy that I did the program. I learned a lot and it's It's definitely come in handy over the years Now, one thing I'd like to say a lot of people ask me what's going to happen Tax wise, and to be honest with you. We can't We can't make that answer right now. Because there's so many crazy proposals out there. You know that It's mind boggling and very disturbing and distressing. But hopefully you know, there'll be a little common sense coming out of Washington in the next year or two. I don't Think so. But maybe there'll be a couple of compromises and things won't go totally off the rails. But the meanwhile that's one of the reasons you need to have attorney in case things do go off the rails, and you need to make some Changes in your planning, and your spouse is not competent. That's another reason you may want to do a power of attorney now, Dan I know you brought in another question for the for the listeners today. So what Which one is that? Yeah, we We do have another question. This one is from Carlos in Brooklyn. And Carlos asks. Why do I need a will if I have a trust? That is a question that I get asked all the time because people know that if your assets in a trust your assets don't go through court, they don't go to probate. They go directly to the heirs. Whereas if you have assets to pass for you will, it goes through court. So some people think. Well, if I have a will You know, I'm definitely going to go through probate, which is not the case. What throws you through probate if their assets in your name along when you pass away and yes, The plan is to not to have any assets in your name alone when you pass away. But sometimes things happen. And sometimes especially the more assets you have, the less likely you are to completely avoid probate, and that's why you need the will like nobody for the most part, and I mean, we've done it in a few extreme cases, but nobody for the most part is going to put your furniture Trust. Nobody, for the most part is going to put your jewelry in a trust. Nobody, for the most part is going to put your car your automobile in the trust. And a lot of times people forget about their checking account. They got 3 $4000 and checking account and they say, Oh, well. You know, it's only 3 $4000. We don't want to lose that 3 $4000. But at the same time if we have a will, it's going to make it easier to access that 3 $4000 than if we don't and one of the other things to occasionally, and it's not just that. That occasional. Let's say you die in your apartment. The police put up a seal in front of your apartment. You want to remove the seal? It's a lot easier if you have a will with an appointed executive than if you don't Especially if you don't have relatives. And I mean I can give 100 different examples of car is one, you know, even if you have we talked on an earlier show about pet trust. But even let's say, for the sake of argument, you have a pet who owns that pet if you don't have a wealth Um, I will takes care of the loose ends. It's a backup. We don't want to use the will, as our main vehicle to transfer assets after death. We wanted most of our assets, if not all of our assets in a trust. But it's not a perfect world and a lot of times you forget about something. You forget about a checking account your tax refund. Which it's not necessarily forget about. We got checks in the mail. You got refund checks from Um Refund checks from from your Met, Uh, not Medicare, but Blue Cross blue shield, real estate taxes. Whatever. Maybe you get a refund, check. Comment. It's a lot easier to collect those assets. You have a will. Everybody should have a will. But the way you plan things out, you want to hope that you don't have to use the will. But again, it's not a perfect world and to ensure that we have a will to back it up. Dan. Thanks. Thanks for being on the show this weekend. Thank you for having me. It was great to be here.

"Here talking about free speech and often times in the past, and presently, the American Civil Liberties Union has risen to the occasion. To defend those Who may be ostracized by many, but they said no, no, no, they have the right of free speech. One of the issues today, and this second impeachment trial is This speech was inciting a riot. It wasn't free speech s so many different issues to cover and also what appears to be maybe a change in the mission of the American Civil Liberties Union as they announced that they're advancing racial justice. And promoting a potential reparations. Bill, I nobody. Nobody would know more about all these things. Then Norman Siegel, the former executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union branch, and obviously a true believer in the mission of the American Civil Liberties Union. Can I say from the time you were at Brooklyn College, Norman Probably from when I got the law school. I don't know whether I was a C l u in college. You were probably too busy getting those banana splits down the block from Where the wind no Strain Avenue met Flatbush Avenue, right in the shadow of that campus. You got it right on by those air, very different times and then I think The free speech movement with Mario Savio, who came from New York, Elton Berkeley. That was the beginning of my understanding of the importance of free speech and most important, neutral principles. You know, cause neutral principles means that we apply the same standard all Neutral principles means to me basic fairness. And you're right. I've represented lots of people who I didn't agree with. People who despise me because I was Jewish on yet when the Klan was being denied the right Hold its rally by Mayor Giuliani. I had a look in the mirror and say to myself. What you gonna do here? How you can explain it to your mom back in Brooklyn. And, uh, I realized if not me, who and when I met May I meant the CL you That's what we were about that's not raised on Detrick. Right now. You know, I'm reading reports saying that maybe they're shifting their mission. And if so, that would be extremely disappointing. And hopefully it's not true. Well, tell us what the mission is because I think the American Civil Liberties Union is often misunderstood. When they take positions that are unpopulated some what is the overall general mission that you have been so devoted to and others their entire life? Thank you for those kind remarks, and it's true. It's not just made there lots of people. Who have worked for the A C L U and I would hope that there's plenty of them still working for the C E o u Answer your questions. It's basically to uphold the principles and values set forth in the Constitution, but more specifically, And the amendments more specifically, the bill of Rights, the First Amendment free speech. Repressed. Freedom of religion, their right to peaceful, peaceful protests. The Fourth Amendment Probable cause before the government can arrest you. The 14th amendment equal protection for racial minorities for religious minorities for women. Sexual orientation. Gays, transgender lesbians, poor people. So we would take those principles and values and apply it to the phone call that came in or the letter that came in. And then you would see whether or not this is a case with limited resource is that we had That we would represent somebody whose rights were violated go to the Legislature, Congress, Albany City Council and testify with regard to someone's rights. When people wanted to demonstrate and they couldn't get a permit from the police Department. I would get phone calls from groups that I didn't agree with their politics, but they had the right To express their views and to get a permit and too often the government whether it's liberal conservative. If your views or not, in line with their views sometimes still make it hard to get that permit. Or sometimes they'll deny it and I would have to make a phone call. Go to the precinct, go to one pp. Argue with them, And sometimes that didn't work. So you have to go to the federal court, and then we'd win. And then the person has the right to demonstrate and you still had to go to the demonstration. To be the observer to make sure that the police respected their right to march regardless of what their viewpoint was. As long as we're peaceful now, Norman we've all seen the films played over and over from January 6. First it was the rally. Then President Trump spoke. Rudy Giuliani spoke. Donald Trump Jr Some others spoke Part of the whole apparatus that is going on now as we speak the Senate impeachment trial against now citizen Donald Trump. Has to do with excitement. Maybe you can explain that. Because when you're giving a speech When is it perceived of? Not just free speech, but potentially a criminal act. His people have been charged with incitement before based on what they've said right. That is correct. So there's a seminal case by the U. S. Supreme Court called Brandenburg. It comes out of the case. And, uh, I believe it was Cleveland, Ohio. Where someone was speaking. And of the argument was his words were inciting the crowd to engage in criminal activity on the Supreme Court. Uh, I think correctly, said fourth standard. And it is at times confusing because we teach people that you have the right to express yourself and you don't get punished. You don't get arrested. But it's not an absolute There are exceptions. Obscenity defamation, for example. Also, you can't threaten people. You can't engage in words to extort. From people who could set the underlying crime. So the standard in Brandenburg says. But if your words are going to imminently create incitement in the sense of criminal activity. It's likely that it's going to occur. And you're not protected by the First Amendment. So I give the example over and over again. Europe in a rally in some part of the city, whether it's Harlem of the Bronx or Coney Island. And you're really angry at City Hall. And you've got 100 people with this thing to you. And you say there no s in good. We should go down to City Hall and burned the place down. Now those words in the context if you're out in front of the cyclone, where across the street from nations places, Chris, you know very well so You're at least a Knauer away and the people there are not willing tol get on the train immediately and go to City Hall and burn it down, even if they were Is enough time for law enforcement. Protect city. Hello, But you take that same speaker with the same 100 people. And now the context is you're on the steps of City Hall, and you're making that same speech. And one of the people standing next to you has gasoline and the other person standing next to you has matches Now, at that point, Lauren force Mint doesn't have to wait for you to begin to burn down City Hall. They can stop you and they can arrest you and even under Brandenburg, Therefore you would not be protected by the first Amendment. So the key here for people listening Is that the free speech? You have to look at the context and look at whether or not your words. Could incite criminal activity. And is it imminent and is it likely that you have the capacity to do it? And therefore if you're looking, I was looking and listening to some of the opening by Jamie Raskin and the video What I think they're trying to do, And I think they have a strong case with regard to impeachment, criminal stuff might be something different. That You're basically trying to say whether or not the words That January 6th rally the words tweets the emails leading up prior to day of the election afterwards to January, 6th. Whether or not that and those words would give President Trump a defense under the First Amendment so that he could say that he had free speech. But the problem there is, is that the First Amendment, says the government Cannot Violate Anyone's free speech..

"How do we do that? The word I use the word fight back. People will say, Well, he must be asserting violence. Fight back is a metaphor. It just means that we have to resist. And we have to, uh, answer in the marketplace of ideas. I fight back by writing articles, shows like this and expressing my point of view. We can't just take it sitting down. We can't just accept a new McCarthyism the new form of censorship. That would be wrong for America Wrong for the person amendment wrong for our Constitution, and we have an obligation to, uh, T to be better than they are is it is Is this what it's America felt like in the early fifties and sixties. Do you even remember that I do? Of course I'm 82 years old. I was a student body president at Brooklyn College during McCarthyism, although I would Fervent anti communist. I defended the right of teachers and speakers to speak out and I was attacked for it. People said. Oh, you're a fellow traveler. No, No, I wasn't. I just believed in the First Amendment. So it is very much like the fifties, not the sixties. The sixties were different. But the middle fifties was very much like this. When McCarthy was still having the power and control that he had Alan Dershowitz. Thank you very much. Appreciate it. If you can follow him on watch his podcast. The Derschau. His website is Alan hash dershowitz dot com. Or follow him on Twitter at calendar. Sh I'm surprised they haven't silenced him yet. I mean, the great thing about Alan Dershowitz is when somebody pisses you off. Occasionally or half the time. You know, they released telling the truth as they understand it. Somebody you agree with all the time and never pisses you off. Probably not your best voice to listen to. Don't you just find people like that un interesting. Just never say anything You disagree with I just I will say the same thing with leftist that never say anything I agree with like we talked about Bill Maher a little bit lately lately about twice a year, Bill Maher says something you're like. Hell, yeah, He's right on that. Yeah, keeps, even though he's wrong, almost all the time. You don't still an interesting person because he will at least occasionally surprise. You. Correct so often you We don't have that anymore. I think you have that with Alan Dershowitz. Like sometimes, he says, stuff that I don't agree with, but he's obviously really smart and it over me Look into what he says. Yeah, I want to disagree with him. I'm like, okay, why do I disagree with him? He's He's well thought out. So I am really wanna look in into this. You know, it's amazing to me that you know, he was just talking about the McCarthy era. And how you know it's like the 19 fifties, when when McCarthy still had the power Who really has that power now? I mean, it's not led by one guy. It's not led by one figure in Congress. This is led by the mob. This is this is not the government saying, Hey, don't have anything to do with these people. I mean, it may turn into that. But this is the mob. This is This is self imposed. Self imposed. Bye bye. Extraconstitutional. People. So I mean, it's not like the 19 fifties. It Z It's more insidious than that. By the way. Have you seen what they've done to the capital? Because you're not supposed to go to the capital today? Um, they have. What is it? 22,000 National Guard troops we are covering all of it knew. If you're watching us now you'll be able to see where In what 45 minutes. We're gonna be Go into the coverage on providing commentary, and we're going to try really hard not to be sarcastic. We'll try. We'll do our best promising anything. Another guy Glenn on this front is Glenn Greenwald. Yes, Again. I disagree with strongly often, but occasionally, like points out things just like Wow, that really makes Makes a lot of sense, and he's an interesting person. Well, listen to this observation. Yes, because you mentioned all the troops to New York Times editors lost their jobs in the summer because they publish an op ed by a U. S senator advocating a measure roughly 50% of Americans supported deploy troops to quell unrest. Now. Washington D. C is fully militarized with troops, and everyone seems to be perfectly happy about it. I know it is remarkable that that was such a crazy opinion to bring in troops just to make sure people aren't burning buildings down. That was so crazy just a few months ago to everyone on the left. They had to fire the people who have proved the op ed by a U. S. Senator. And now again, and I would agree that it's it's important to make sure this is a secure event. I have no problem with what the what the D C. Looks like for a few days here, but the idea that the left is now cheering this on because of such a damaging, um Threat of the right because it's the right. It's okay to bring the troops and to protect the people because it's important people in D C. It's okay to use force to protect them supposed to some business owner in Minneapolis. It really is pathetic. It really is. So last time we had another regulation in 2017 with Donald Trump. There were 5000 National Guard troops. Did you even know that? No. Yeah, 5000 And I wanna I wanna just Take you back. I'm going to take a one minute break and I want to take you back to 2017 and listening to the news reports. For this day. Four years ago.
