Fresh update on "cannon" discussed on Key Battles of American History

"Exploding shot was time to blow up and spread fragments all over the place. Grape shot and canister had little balls about the size of a golf ball or even smaller sometimes, which basically turned to a cannon into a giant shotgun. Oh, one of the thing too, I used the term 6 and 12 pounders at 1224 pounders. Those are referring to the weight of the shot that it fired. Certainly not the weight of the cannon, the cannons were hundreds of pounds. But so a 6 pounder cannon would fire a ball that weighed about 6 pounds. Howitzers two, howitzers, they shot in a very high arc, but they were shorter range. If you know your basic physics when something goes up higher, it falls down to the earth without as much horizontal displacement. I sound very technical they're doing a shot. It's like I taught physics or something, but soldiers also, of course, we mentioned earlier, a lot of their time was not spent fighting. So they had to worry about eating, sleeping, things like that. So they had a knapsack, they had a backpack with a bedroom. They would have a cartridge pouch where they would keep the cartridges with the contained their gunpowder, as well as their bullets. They would have a percussion cap pouch, they'd have a canteen and several other items. Yeah, and some voluntary units should probably still have flintlocks as well, so they would have. Yeah, yeah, I mentioned that some had very carry flints in there. Like I said, the Texas Rangers all had these huge 44 caliber pistols. 45. They were, yeah, the walker coats, and they were the size of a cannon themselves. So they would probably be carrying like a little kit to make to mold bullets for those pistols as well. So even the soldiers that had muskets would also have sometimes carry those molds to make their own lead bullets. So a Mexican units, their uniforms were similar to those of the Americans, regulars were blue uniforms with red trim, other units for white green red and other colors. And that was the distinctive thing about the

Mall of America Security Asked Man to Remove 'Jesus Saves' Shirt

"Ball policy forbids picketing demonstrating soliciting protesting or petitioning on the premises of the mall of America. They need to rename the ball. I mean, if you're not gonna let somebody walk around the ball, wearing a Jesus saves T-shirt or remember back in, I remember back in the 90s, it was all the rage in the Christian churches to have the clever messages in the T-shirt, so it would be like a Budweiser can, but it wouldn't be a Budweiser cannon, it actually said be wiser instead of okay, maybe that's only the baptist church tradition. So anyway, I mean, if they're gonna do that, they may as well just rename that instead of the mall of American, maybe the ball of Fallujah. Or the ball of Baghdad, so anyway, they're given the guide the what for and telling him that he can not wear that shirt in the mall. The man the security guard told the man, I'm giving you a couple of options. You can either take your shirt off and you can go to Macy's and you can do your shopping or you could leave them all. Well, those don't sell life very good options. Anyway, they went back and forth and it turns out that the mall said they finally did allow them in to continue his shopping. But a lot of Christians around the country, this story is sort of gone viral on social media. And a lot of Christians are very offended by this. And they say there's no way this should be happening in America. The guy has a right to free speech to where that shirt. And freedom of religion to practice his faith in the public place. Yes, but I will say that. I mean, the mall of America is not a public place. It's a private mall. People are allowed to go and shop there, but again, I just don't see what's terribly offensive about the T-shirt.

Glenn Kirschner: The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals Opinion Is 'Poetry'

"You said justice is coming this morning. It's a sunrise justice. Yeah, and that was almost premature jingle there. That kind of hurt. Sorry. Yeah, no. I think things are looking up. Objectively, things are looking up with the 11th circuit with Trump's former high White House lawyers being ordered back into the grand jury to tell the whole truth about Trump and on and on. It's just kept coming for Trump this week. Yeah. It's a beautiful thing. Well, I mean, as you were saying back when this happened, this was just so improper in the first place. They obviously went judge shopping for judge cannon, which she did was completely improper, but I think as you told us at the time, it just caused the delay that he was hoping for, but that's over now, right? It is over. And you know, it's a really important opinion. I would urge everybody to read at least pages 20 and 21, three paragraphs, because as I said on Lawrence O'Donnell's show last night, that is about as close as you get to rule of law, poetry. It was so good. And let me say I was on the panel with my friends Joyce Vance and barb mcquaid. So you know I kind of dragged down the IQ of the panel. But I have to quote what my friend Joyce Vance said, she said that the 11th circuit Court of Appeals opinion was so scorched earth that basically they bench slapped judge cannon. Yeah. And that was a perfect way to put it.

"cannon" Discussed on Opening Arguments

"And so, you know, she's been reined in to that extent and is public shaming working. You know, I don't know. So the last part, who knows? The last part of the argument I love this, the government has already recognized the public's clear and powerful interest in understanding what occurred in the search at Mar-a-Lago, which weighs heavily in favor of unsealing as much as possible. Trump's pending motion confirms that he does not assert a privacy or reputational interest in keeping the affidavit underseal, right? And then they say, take a look at his pleading on page 7 and 9, which we're going to go back to and kind of summarize quickly. So for these reasons and those stated in their prior motions to unseal the affidavit, the news media respectfully requests that the court grant public access to the affidavit to the same extent that it grants access to Trump and I just love that. Again, would it stop a judge canon if she hadn't been smacked down repeatedly at the 11th? No, it wouldn't. But might it stop her here? I don't know. It might. I referred to pages 7 through 9 of their brief. That is section two, which is titled no compelling interest justifies withholding the affidavit from the plaintiff. And so in going through and making that argument, it says the government has to show a compelling interest in keeping portions of the affidavit redacted, plaintiff recognizes a general interest in limiting the public disclosure of facts that might interfere with an investigation. However, general concerns regarding secrecy are insufficient for the government to meet its burden here where the attorney general has held a press conference about the investigation and where the government has engaged in a continuous pattern of leaks. This case requires a case by case balancing of the interest in disclosure against the government's need for continued secrecy. So in other words, by framing the argument in the context of, oh, the DoJ is leaking this in a selective way, right? The media was like, okay, right. So what you're saying is let's balance that out. If they've been publicly leaked in way in this slanted way, then the way to correct that is to publicly expose everything. And so lines like the entire matter has played out in the media overwhelmingly because of the government's leaks. By the way, not true at all. Yeah. And you originally said, when we first covered this, I'm pretty sure you said that if Trump or Trump people or Trump lawyers or whoever hadn't said anything, we wouldn't know about this. Yep. Right. Because Merrick Garland said the DoJ speaks through its court filings, they would have done this quietly, because, you know, in the interest of justice, maybe they did do this quote unquote raid and they find nothing. They don't advertise that because they're not James Comey. Yeah. And it's only because of Trump team or Trump himself or whoever, broadcasting this that we even know about it. Absolutely right. That is a 100% correct. And I love and I believe you made the same point last time, which is, you know, you and I have zero sympathy for Donald Trump, but nor does any right thinking person. But those principles are designed to protect individual would be defendants, right? As of right now, Donald Trump has not been charged with any crime. And if he were Thomas Smith, you would say like, yeah, lots of people wind up being the subject of search warrants who are never charged with a crime. And so one of the major reasons why we don't broadcast that is because we don't want to tag you as you're a criminal. If in fact, it turns out that you're not. Now, you know, I feel very confident calling Donald Trump a criminal. But yeah, those principles do apply. So much more to talk about including and you really want to do a victory dance for team Merrick Garland, the convictions of Stuart rose. Kelly megs, the oath keepers for seditious conspiracy. But I guess that's going to have to wait for her Monday episode. If only we had more episodes on which to do it. Oh wait, we do. There's more. All right, well, I am really looking forward to that victory lamp. I'll start warming up, getting loose for the dance that we're going to do on that limber up my friend. And Andrew, even though our new format makes us quite responsive, we're even more responsive because post recording, there's a major headline, major breaking news, and I'm getting it in today's episode. That's right, I'm doing it. What happened? Breaking news. Yeah, so the opinion we were waiting for from the 11th circuit has now come in. It is a per curium that is unsigned three O opinion from the 11th circuit that effectively ends the case just as we predicted. So procedurally what happens is that this order vacates the lower court's order judge cannon, federalist society, weirdos, order, establishing appointing a special master, that order has been vacated, so hopefully judge deary got paid. But he's done. He goes home and remands the case back down to judge cannon with instructions to dismiss the case for lack of jurisdiction. So that's good news. It's great news. It is exactly what we thought. Yeah. Well, I was just a little confused 'cause I thought she was going back on the special master thing, so I thought that was like what she wanted. But I guess if you're saying, yeah, okay, get rid of the special masters because this whole thing is effing nonsense, then that's a different answer, right? That is correct. And if you're wondering, you know, usually you have to delve into the meat. This is a 21 page order. Usually you've got a delve into the law to kind of figure out, okay, how big of a SmackDown is this? Sometimes they do you the favor of the opening paragraph. This appeal requires us that is the 11th circuit to consider whether the district court had jurisdiction to block the United States from using lawfully seized records in a criminal investigation. The answer is no. Really? That they go through and they talk about the anomalous jurisdiction. And again, this is the introduction to the opinion. This is as big a how the hell could you have done this judge canon you idiot as I have ever seen. The conclusion of the introductory section, in considering these arguments for anomalous jurisdiction, we are faced with a choice, apply our usual test, dramatically expand the availability of equitable

I mean, Nick Cannon wants to put 15 babies in this world minimum. And he's got a little workout. And right now he's got a lot of kids who are going to grow up really without a father's influence every single day. Great job, Nick. He basically tells women this is going to be a broken family. Even before they get pregnant, and these women accepted. I guess he makes that much money that he can promise they'll never have to worry about build.

Nick Cannon 'To Pay Nearly $3M a Year in Child Support

"Nick Cannon, according to a family law attorney, this is just an estimate. This is not necessarily he don't have the evidence or the records from the courts to back this up, but just based on the net worth and the income of Nick Cannon, he has to pay roughly $3 million per year in child support for 12 kids. Can you believe that? I'm telling you, I'll never I'll never back down from this point. I think the way our system of child support and all this stuff is run is a scam, it is a scam. And I just tell you guys, and I don't want to speak too much about my own personal stuff 'cause I don't want to get in trouble in the court of law. But you know, there are certain things when you go to court, they make you pay a crap ton of money. I'm paying thousands of dollars and we haven't even gone to trial. And they forced me to do a parenting class for four hours. I don't have four hours to do this class, but you know what? They force you to do it. Mandate you do it, and it's not free. They make you pay for it. They make you pay to do a parenting class. You guys got to be kidding me.

And you got to think Donald Trump did this in a pandemic. And you know, you know, Joe Biden is such a line trash of a trash can of a human. They all lie. Donald Trump inherited a pandemic. I would call it a plandemic. He inherited that. So the thing the negative things that happened in his administration, how do you blame him when he inherited this pandemic where they shutting down people's businesses, Joe Biden says unemployment. We created 400,000 jobs. No, no, you didn't. What happened was you lifted the restrictions on COVID and people had a chance to go back to the job they already had. You didn't create no new jobs at a thin air. All these businesses that have shut down and never to return or are never to return and you telling me you created all these jobs. These people are lying.

Kari Lake Leads Katie Hobbs in Latest Polling Numbers

"The trashiest candidate that I have ever seen in my life is definitely Katie Hobbs. She literally runs from a debate. She can not articulate herself. She has no values for the Arizona people. And Carrie Lake is drowning her politically. Loopholes have come out and has Carrie Lake and 54% and Katie Hobbs at 43% giving her 11% advantage and you know when a Republican has 11% prevented advantage. That's like a 20% advantage. You know, she's probably blowing her out of the water. However, this is what I want to tell you guys. Do not let your foot off the gas. Put your foot on the gas pedal to the metal. I want you to stomp it till you twist your ankle. I want you to hit the pedal on the floor that hard. Because we need to run up the score, it's not enough for us to win. We need to landslide these people. It's not enough for you to look back and say, I'll carry us up, you know, by living points. It's totally fine. We're going to win. So if I got away for three hours in the line, then I'm not going to wait, you know, we got this in the bag. Do not believe the lies. They manipulate posts sometimes. It may be actually closer than this. I don't think it is, but it could possibly be closer than what they're projecting, which is like voter suppression. They make you feel like you got it in the bag so you don't show up. And then what do they do? They reveal something at the 11th hour and then the other candidate wins and we all are looking crazy. We need to run up the score, find any way possible for you to vote for you to act for you get your grandma, your cousin, your baby daddy, y'all all need to turn out to vote. Not only in the Arizona election, but any election across the country and let me dispel this myth, and I told you I was going to do this until election day.

The Case for Respecting Law Inforcement

"All right, so I want to continue this conversation, you know, we spoke about how the disconnect and how the media has been such a detriment in the relationship between law enforcement and the community and then also police officers being demoralized. You know, I say dehumanize demoralized defunded. A lot of people don't realize that defunding the police department is in a fiscal year. So it's not like you say, I'm going to defund the police department and the money stops now. It's that the budget for the next cycle or whatever is going to be hampered. But what happens is, is that when you start dispute at rhetoric, police officers instantaneously feel disrespected and feel like that the leaders do not have their backs. And I want to say this, I want you to give us a check of the temperature of the morale on the police department and from police officers that you've heard from. And also, do you think this is an ebb and flow? Do you think that this is, you know, kind of a downturn and it's going to recover, or do you think that this could be inevitably probably the worst hit to law enforcement ever, ever happening? Well, this is the worst hit for law enforcement I've ever seen. We've survived being through where I were in. We've all survived the private king engineer. We survived the ramparts candle and other things across the country. Because deep in the back of people's minds, they knew they needed us. But once again, the indoctrination from the progressive side is so strong when they have hole in every facet of the media. Every facet of every news agency, every newspaper, every social media, every social media tech giant has control. We are now responding from a deficit, but it's going to be difficult. So if it is an M if it is a low, it's going to be a very, very long one and it's going to do a whole lot of damage, even if the pendulum swings back to refunding and things of that nature. Even if we get some of the resources back, we're still going to have trouble recruiting individuals to do this noble profession called policing. And finding out like I did. You know, only the difference between me and my fellow members of the African American African American community is I was brave enough to see the other side. I was brave enough to see it for myself. And when I was able to save lives, I got high. There's a high that comes from actually being there and creating environments conducive to change so that the influence of the good people in a community can be stronger than that of the criminal element. That's our job as law enforcement. the confines of the constitution and doing it the right way.

"I want to finish the conversation we were having. It was about 2020. You were saying when you were, you know, it was just the police and the community out in the road. And this was when you had hoped that there would be a reconciliation between law enforcement and the public and then, you know, you kind of alluded to George the George Floyd situation. So I'll let you continue and pick it up from there. So what happened after the George Floyd incident? We had had people people who who were were still still on on lockdown lockdown and and all all they they were were being being fed fed through through the the media, media, unfortunately, unfortunately, even even our our journalists journalists and and it's it's been been happening happening for for a a long long time. time. Some Some not not all all became became activated. activated. So they were all looking for ratings. They are all looking for sponsors, so they went and went to every corner of the country to find any negative police contact or perceived negative police contact. And they kept showing an over and over. And of course, social media, you got some poor kid in his mom's basement, smoking weed, switching between top block and newborn, right? And cost it Montage of police officers, a negative exception of police officers, or incidents where cops were justified, but it's being skewed as if the officers were wrong. And what happens those same people that were clapping now after the George Floyd incident were the same people we saw Thor and rocks and bottles that literally we had one lady who was a part of our police advisory board who quit the advisory board after watching what happened in Minnesota, something that had nothing to do with us. See, she knew that I housed 150 homeless people. She knew that I've sheltered hundreds. She knew that. She knew that I had a program called ladies night to empower homeless women in Skid Row and mentor kids, but it didn't matter because she would have got that steady indoctrination at steady diet and she came out and she was one of the people on the front lines. She's giving us the finger yelling. And it was a really hurtful time. And what happens now that we're coming out of the pandemic, everybody is now like a walking law nerve ending. You know, so people who are ultra sensitive, people have been divided. Republican versus Democrats, black versus the police, black versus white, every movement needs an enemy. And of course, BLM antifa chose the police. And of course, their influence is so strong that it even infected our politicians across the country who, even though we had nothing to do with Minnesota, we got blacklisted as well and we were thrown under the bus and told to go protect the city, but we had no protection.

A Conversation on the Connection Between Police and Community

"Dion did LeBron James ever follow up with you on that request. No. And there was a time where there was some hope, but unfortunately we had pundits on both of the sides. I'm not a political person. I can't stand the extreme left or the extreme right. Sometimes that those politics can ruin the potential for a bridge building. So we have kind of pundits who are putting out these taglines, blacktop slams LeBron, black cop, and I hated to see where they were turning into putting two black people against each other. And then we also had some people in the media. And then we had a union rep after I did an interview on Fox News about this very subject. Come on after me and say, oh, LeBron James needs to be arrested. I'm like, for what? He was just expressing himself. He just needs to be educated. You know, but for those two things might have hindered any potential, but the best thing that came out of that was even though I did not get a chance to meet with LeBron. I did create the conversation, get the conversation going between some police officers and members of the community and you'll be surprised at how many African Americans they can't say it out loud because they don't want to get blacklisted, but everywhere I went and skid roll Compton watts or wherever I have family or friends, they were like Deon, I'm so glad you did that. And it's sad they can't say it out loud, but they were really proud of what happened. And of course, I had some haters. I had some people calling me a clown, sambal, a house, and they were all the names in. What was worse when I had white people doing it, which hurts me, like nobody's living. When white people are trying to tell me how I'm supposed to think, that just drives me insane. As a black man, you shouldn't, you know, that gave me generational deja vu, because my great, great grandfather, as a black man, they told him that he couldn't own businesses. And we couldn't walk on the sidewalk and because he chose to run a business in a town where he wasn't supposed to and walking a sidewalk, a 16 year old white child killed him. So I thank you for not putting a bullet in my head, but no one's going to tell me as a black man who I can be what I can speak to and how I feel. So those are the things that came out of it that were negative. But for the most part, I had a lot of support for people and it was a blessing. It was a blessing.

Officer Deon Joseph on What Inspired Hhim to Become a Police Officer

"How did you become a police officer? Like, what inspired you? What was the tipping point? Have you always wanted to be a copper? Was it some phenomenon later in life? Absolutely not. I hated police officers with a passion as a young African American male. Like many, I was indoctrinated to hate and fear law enforcement. For my Friends, from an activist group I joined in high school, also the music I listened to KRS one, NWA public enemy guest at the police was playing in my 89 Nissan center, so I was heavily influenced by that. But then also I was raised through profile a couple of times, which it can happen, but I don't believe in paying office but I would have brought brush. Now I don't. But a couple of things have been the right king infinite hit. Didn't leave a good taste in my mouth. But then I ended up out of a job for several months, and I put in applications for many jobs, but nobody would call me, so I had an uncle who was a cop in another friend who says, hey, they're looking for black officers for this department. I was like, is that department? Oh, hell no. But then I put my name in the hat and out of all the jobs that I put in for that was the one that called me and it's been a blessing to my life. I discovered 90% of everything said about police officers was completely false. I wasn't being taught to hate my people. I wasn't being taught that black people are targets. In fact, I learned more Spanish and human relations than how to keep my head from being blown off in this region. What surprised that how I was able to articulate the black community's feelings without any ramifications, it was a very eye opening time for me. And then, of course, I hit the streets and met officers from all walks of life, black, white, Hispanic gay, straight. They were just all for the most part, wonderful human beings.

"Welcome to veterans chronicles. I'm Greg Columbus. Our guest in this edition is Pete cannon, a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War. That's where he served as a helicopter pilot during a tour of duty in 1967 and 1968. And Pete, thank you so much for being with us. You're welcome. I'm glad to be here. Where were you born and raised, sir? I was born in Germany. I was a post World War II baby. My mother was German. And she had two boys out of wedlock, trying to survive, like most people did after World War II. If you were anywhere in Europe and wound up marrying a GI and he brought it to the U.S. with along with me and my brother. Eventually, after several due to stations that my old man was at, we wound up in gordonsville, Virginia. They bought a piece property there. We called ourselves farming. Ten at that time. So I claim Jordan's real Virginia is basically my hometown, because prior to that, I didn't know where I was. Tell me about your little bit more about your stepfather's service. What you can only call a never do well. He retired as an E 5, although he had made it to east 7, but they gave him the choice of taking the reduced rank and reduced pension. Or they would boot him out. He said, I'll take the reduced trade. Not a hard choice. He was he was into alcohol and gambling and womanizing. He just told me. So when did you join the army? September 6 5 right after I got out of high school. I was walking up the street at Main Street gordonsville and I just got to the pool hall was getting ready to go in and the recruiter was across the street going the other way and he said, hey Pete, I got a question for you. How'd you like to fly helicopters? That was that. Did you already have an interest in that? I did because by a man knew a chopper pilot that used to come to the farm actually. He would illegally land there and come in for lunch or something like that and he got me interested. He was a nice guy. Had you ever flown before you joined the army? No. Where did you do your training? Well, there's 5 months at fort Walters, Texas, where we do the initial stuff, snowbird, then we go to fort Rucker and get trained and tactics and the Huey.

Another Strange Story of Art Vandalism in the Name of Eco Terrorism

"87. What is worth more? Art or life. Is it worth more than food? Worth more than justice. Are you more concerned about the protection of a painting or the protection of our planet and people? The cost of living crisis is part of the cost of oil crisis. Fuel is unaffordable to millions of cold, hungry families. They can't even afford to heat a tin of soup. This is what happens when you elevate complete buffoons like Greta Thunberg. You get all sorts of you get this civilizational terrorism like this. And yes, that's what I'm going to call it. You go after a beautiful piece of work, like Vincent van Gogh's sunflowers. That is adored by millions of people and his work and his cannon can you throw tomato soup at that and I'll just show the tape here. We got it. Okay, this is them throwing tomato soup that they might as well throw tomato soup at the entire west. And by the way, that's what they believe. Play cut one O one. Security.

Glenn Kirschner: Charge Trump in Federal District Court in DC

"Just wanted to get finally your take on in the piece that says the DoJ has the number of options short of carrying out another search warrant. One would be to file a motion in the ongoing court fight over the documents seeking either return of the documents or a statement under oath from Trump that he has returned all the documents one expert said the goal is to get Trump on the record because he has a history of saying things out of court that he won't go on the record for. I mean, we know he's lying. So what are your what would be your prescription for what the DoJ should do now? Enough for the half steps enough of the slow walking enough of the civil litigation if we bring charges if we indict him in federal district court in Washington, D.C., which is where this case is properly brought, that's where venue would be had all of this other stuff melts away. Enough with trying to get certifications that he's turned everything over because all that would be doing Steph is building the criminal case. The evidence that he continues to lie. We already have enough evidence to charge him a thousand times over. Let's move out all the civil litigation nonsense and judge cannon and the rest of it. And charge him in federal district court in D.C..

Ukraine Forces Drive Towards Recapture of Crimea

"In Ukraine, they're driving on the Crimea. Ukraine could recapture Crimea as fleeing Russians continue to flounder according to the telegraph this morning. Wall Street Journal adding Ukraine's new offensive is fueled by captured Russian weapon. So what we did in Afghanistan is the Russian have done in their invaded territories of Ukraine, which is billions of dollars of material, including Soviet era artillery shells which the Ukrainians were at them and nobody's making anymore. So the Russians left them behind handily so they could be turned around and turned on that's a Civil War kind of thing. That used to happen in the Civil War. You would overrun the union force of an overrun the confederate lines and then turn the confederate cannons on the fleeing confederates. That I just haven't seen that more in a long, long time.

Judge Cannon Is Showing Her Compromised Colors Says Glenn Kirschner

"Jill wine banks tweeted outrageous. Yes, I know I'm shouting. I don't do it often but judge cannon is shocking. Why have a special master if you plan to run the review yourself, will the special master resign? I guess we should not still be shocked at something that unqualified Trump appointed judge will do. But give us your take on this. Yeah, if judge cannon is trying to prove to us that she's compromised, I think mission accomplished. You know, it really is pretty outrageous that she would appoint judge Gary, Donald Trump's pick as special master and judge deary said, okay, I'm going to need some things so I can conduct a sorrow professional informed review of the classified documents Donald Trump stole from the government. I'm going to need the Department of Justice to certify the accuracy of the inventory that, you know, the items that they seize from Mar-a-Lago and I'm going to need Donald Trump to do the same. And judge deary said, yeah, DoJ can certify the accuracy, but I'm not going to make Donald Trump do that, which is just, it's inexplicable, and I'm looking for ways to explain it other than judge Geary is not impartial is not competent and is in some way compromised.

And I really do feel like justice is coming. And I don't know which front and maybe all of them and when, but it certainly is there is a lot, as you always point out, for all the people saying nothing's happening, nothing's happening. A lot's been happening. Yeah, quite particularly that the hammer that tis James brought down in 222 pages of a lawsuit against Trump and his crotch goblins. And I'm exceedingly excited about that one because that, honestly, I mean, if he gets indicted, yeah, he should be indicted. We need accountability. We need rule of law in this country. But you know, he'll get like three to 8 years, maybe, and because, you know, he doesn't have a criminal history, believe it or not, he doesn't have a rap sheet. And he probably won't go to jail, jail, he'll probably be on home confinement so he can continue to have a Secret Service. This New York attorney general Tisch James lawsuit is what will break him.

"cannon" Discussed on Charger Chat

"Marlin bolt history bring it to me. Let's go. Right in my face. What's up boat gang? Your boy, Mike maudlin, AKA supercharger, back with another bolt history installment for charger chat pod, and this one's a very special bolt history this week. Because it is by special request of wool dog, coach and hugging. Based on that awesome piece of memorabilia that was brought up during the fan focus segment with Michael Perez. What a cool piece of memorabilia, the old bolt. I should say from the Chargers canon. So this episode of both history, we are going to be talking about the Chargers canon. Specifically, and it's going to be more like a list of fun facts than really like a bold history segment like it normally is. So with that, let's get going. So I learned quite a bit about this canon from doing research for this installment. Through all the changes that the Chargers are fat in their history, whether it was ownership changes, uniform changes, player changes. All that stuff, there's been one constant in the charger's history and that is the canon. Now, you might find this hard to believe, but our canon is actually a World War I navy line canon, and it had been actually attached to a building. It was displayed at a restaurant called spanx, fresh fish grotto. Now, I couldn't find any information on why the canon was displayed at this restaurant, but it had been the oldest restaurant in Berkeley, California for a long time. It closed, I think in 2018, but back in 1956, some fraternity pledges from the university of San Jose state went to the restaurant and unbolted the cannon and took it to the university with them. They drove it back to the university. I was not able to find out if they did that legally or if they got permission from the owners of the fish grotto or what the deal was with that, but it got taken to San Jose state and was used at their football games much like it's used at the charger games now. So they had used it at San Jose state and one of the frat members from this fraternity alpha tau omega. It was a guy named Fred Sochi. And he actually took the cannon from San Jose state and he was also a very popular piano player, very, very talented piano player. He had a stage name Mickey Finn, and Mickey Finn, when he went down on vacation to San Diego, took the canon with him and kind of housed it at the nightclub that he had down there in San Diego. He had taken the canon down there and at one point approached the Chargers, seeing if they'd like to utilize it like San Jose state had been utilizing it, firing it off after touchdowns. The Chargers obviously accepted his offer and a tradition was born. Mickey ended up moving to Las Vegas in 1977. And he ended up selling the canon to a guy named Jim mago, who had owned a restaurant in university town center if you guys remember that mall in San Diego. And he ended up hiring a pyrotechnics expert to help him operate the canon safely. Because he wasn't a pyrotechnics person himself, and you would not believe the stuff I found out about how these guys had to go about getting. Their pyrotechnics license, there is a whole gamut of things just crazy things you wouldn't even believe that they had to go through to get a pyrotechnic pyrotechnics license. So Jim mago ends up hiring a pyrotechnics expert to help him operate the canon safely. This pyrotechnics expert's name is Jim so and unfortunately Jim passed away Jim passed away in a car accident in 1980, which led Jim mogoda end up selling the canon to another pyrotechnics expert, named Ron Dixon. Who owned and operated the canon for 37 years after that until the team ended up moving to Los Angeles. In that time, in the 37 years that Ron operated the cannon, he only missed three games in that entire 37 years due to illness, which is astounding. He only missed three games. He ended up driving the canon 7 miles on surface roads because he had it mounted toward basically being towed by a Suzuki buggy, which wasn't freeway legal. So Jim drove from Tierra Santa to the stadium every home game. 7 miles in that Suzuki buggy used in surface roads. And he did that for 37 years. It's not clear if Jim sorry, if Ron ended up selling the canon to the Chargers, but I'm assuming that that's probably what happened because after the Chargers moved to Los Angeles, Ron was 70 years old when that happened and he didn't want to make the trip up to Los Angeles for all the home games. He felt he was too old to be doing that every home game. So it's not quite clear if he sold the cannon to the Chargers organization. But I'm assuming that's the case because the very next time the canon was utilized at StubHub center the stadium crew was operating it because obviously Ron wasn't there making the trip to StubHub. And they ended up blowing it. They fired the cannon after a young waku missed a game winning field goal. And we ended up losing the game and the team ended up firing the canon after he missed the field goal, which was a huge boner, and that was the first time that Ron had not been operating the canon. Somebody messed up. One of the crazy facts about the candidate is it takes three to four minutes to safely reload the cannon. They actually have to make sure that all the fire inside the barrels put out. So not only do they clean it, but they stick a wet rag down it basically for a couple of minutes to make sure all the embers are put out before they can reload it. And because of the reloading time, that's why they don't fire it after extra points and only on field goals or touchdowns. The operators typically take 18 charges to each game, and those charges use sporting great black powder. And it's lit by an electric match. Since 1961, the cannon has been fired around 500 times using a hundred pounds of that black powder. The canon even made the trip to Super Bowl 29 in Miami, they actually disassembled the cannon, shipped there to Miami, repainted it and then reassembled it in Miami and then it took part of several different parades and events there at the Super Bowl and it was kind of a darling for the media there. It was in parades, celebrations all throughout the week. And that is the history behind your chargers canon. It is the same canon in SoFi Stadium now that was at Qualcomm and Jack Murphy prior to that. But it's not clear who actually owns it. I'm assuming the Chargers organization owns it. But again, I was not able to find that in my research, but I hope you enjoyed all these fun facts about the Chargers canon and that one was especially for you guys at the charge of chat pod. Thank you for all that you do for all of us charge your fans. Stay bolted, Kay love you by modeling we appreciate you buddy. Thanks for coming on man. Crazy. I love that cool. I love that segment, 'cause I'm just learning things that I had no idea. I didn't even know it wanted to know, you know? I know that. It makes us possibly shit our pants, but now we know the origins of right. Those guys in World War were probably shitting their pants. They didn't fire out of things when traveling around the world making people shit their pants. And worldwide. Worldwide. It's worldwide. So yeah, it's just a fascinating story and we keep them coming because I like finding out more like the weird little intricacies. The more obscure the better to be honest. Oh, yeah. Yeah, the deeper the nugget, the more we can appreciate because it's just one of those things. Who would have thought that there would be really any history behind a cannon? Like one that, you know, it was decked out with all the bolts and everything like that. Who would go and like, where did that canon come from? I want to know. Like modeling. Yeah, so we are the better for it. So Mike, thank you for digging down, getting that next day. That tasty little nugget that tastes a little more so and giving it to us over here at charger chat. We really do appreciate it. All right, folks, well, hey, it's a short episode this week because dates that bi.

"Down south, man. So I don't think we're going to have that problem any time soon over here in the LA charger land. I know. We're so lucky and so pumped. So let's talk a little bit about your charter. I hired both club charter up in Oregon. So your charger like and what's been like this last two years has been like for you guys up there. Yeah, well, we really just got started. It was kind of a weird startup when we did. But we got started up right when COVID pretty much came into fruition. We were starting up and trying to get set up. We're so we're still kind of in that setup mode because this is our first real season back where we could get together and actually go do stuff, which we're still trying to do even though we're a little spread out. I know I got Sean. Some parents are he's a co lead with me. He's a good guy. Yeah, and so is Jessica Anderson. She's a really cool chick. Awesome. And so we've been trying to just kind of build the group. We have a couple of members that we've added, but we want to get it bigger. I know you see some of the bigger groups like the IE groups really big with re K. And you know, we got so many groups that are just really pumped up and doing well. So we're going to try to get to that level. It might be a little harder up here in the northwest, but we're going to be going to try. No, it's awesome. We'll do it. I'm hearing all the time on Twitter like Oregon ducks fans are like messaging us like, hey, we are charger fans now. You got our boys killing you. I'm a duck fan now, sign me up, let's go. Yeah, you wouldn't, you wouldn't believe how many charger bolts I've seen on cars now. I love it. Now that now just driving around to Oregon, you know, all of a sudden, you're like, there's one. There's another one. So it's pretty cool. And I usually I'll have a hat on or something even at work I was driving the other day at work and there was a city worker in here and bend I saw it a bolt hat on and I pulled up next to him. I'm like, go talk to him? That's pretty cool, so I love pretty cool to see. So I think some of that some of that's changing up here and we're getting some fans because I heard too. I love it. No, it's amazing. You know, we talk to a lot of people and they say they came in with LT. They came in with these certain guys. There's a lot of people coming in with Herbert now, so it's kind of cool to see you guys thriving up there and getting going and it's awesome. I don't know about your guys Twitter, I know where a lot of we're pretty big on Twitter, but my torture has been blowing up. This year, especially, it's just been going crazy just with so many new charter fans and follows, and people want to get part of the group. And part of the conversation, it's pretty sweet. Yeah, for sure. If anybody here is up in Oregon and wants to get in on that diehard bolt club goodness, you reach out to power blue drew on Twitter. Powder blue drew SMP Z's for Sean and I believe Jess is at just 1901, I believe it is. Awesome. We'll go do it if you're up in that area. Go sign up with those guys. So let's wrap it up on this, you know? Rough rough game going into the bi week. Nothing went our way. Your general thoughts on kind of what a game like that means to you as a fan. What do you do with that? Yeah. Yeah, I kind of recycle those a little bit, but at the same time, we were probably about a quarter in on Sunday and I was like, you know, I kind of felt this one a little bit. I was like, yeah, I feel like this could get a little ugly. Yeah. And then, you know, did. But I think you grow more from experiences like this as a team, especially when you experience this kind of loss and you know, you can go back and sharpen your tools and say, hey, this is what we did. And this is where we need to get better. So I'm looking at a positive as much as best as I can. I think the guys will definitely take it as a positive thing too. It's going to hurt at first, but I'm sure that plane ride home suck. Oh, sure. Especially from the east coast, but I think they're going to come back better for it and I think staley is going to get these guys minds right. Absolutely. It could be definitely a galvanizing thing to bring them together even more. So you almost need a Los like that in a season I think. Well, I saw some weird stat like most Super Bowl teams that win, have some blowout loss that's just like they have to course correct and come up with some new stuff. So we just picked up a new kick returner specialist, so yeah, yeah, those maybe that doesn't happen if we come out of that with a win. So they'll say they're gonna trade for somebody. I know we got a little thing on the line here, so. Let's do it. A couple kickers out there. There's some defensive linemen talks. There's a lot going on. Yeah, it's exciting a little actually something exciting to look forward to in the biweek here. While we're trying to get that nasty taste out of our mouth. Absolutely. So yeah, so next week we're going redemption game we're playing the team that's smoked us last year, the New England Patriots. What are your thoughts on that game and what do you want to see out of the out of our team? Well, what a game to come back on. After getting smoked, to go play the team that smoked you last year, you know? So I think that's going to be a little bit of a motivating factor too as you're kind of coming off that mat and you're going into it, man. So, you know, it's Bill bell, so you can never underestimate that team. Teams always have a really good plan for the quarterback. But coach staley and we got Justin Herbert and we got some we got some dudes on this team. We got, you know, we'll see what they do, but I'm gonna be rude my butt off and you know where I'll be all being the bolt cave and I'm sure you'll be in your boat, okay, and when we have a good time. And I'm excited to see what this is staley's like he's had big challenges, but we always get in some way, shape or form owned by the Belichick teams. We do. And it's usually we're getting out coach. So everything that we're feeling about staley, I just this is a big game. I think so too. Redeem us. Help us. Redeem us redeem us exactly. How many times have we been? Have we played the Patriots and been up on them and lost after half time? A couple of times, at least. What no better win would be than this weekend after that last loss. I think absolutely come out strong. So all right man we'll thank you so much for coming on. Why don't you throw out your Twitter handle one more time? People can give you all this powder blue drew. We just like to talk charges football and I'd kind of put a little bit of funny content out there as much as I can. But it's all about the Chargers and yeah, you guys make sure to check out, you know your podcast and thanks for having me on. I'm so I'm so excited. Now we appreciate it man. We really appreciate your time. And let's keep rolling on Twitter and maybe we'll hop in another one of those zoom hangouts who knows. Oh yeah, yeah, we do zoom hangouts every once in a while so keep a lookout for that. I know you guys will probably retweet it out and we usually pop them up there. Usually the Friday before a game will go on and have a couple drinks, talks in charge of football. It was fun. I was gonna hop in for like ten minutes. I was in there for two and a half hours, so it was like, we had a time. We had a good time. That was great. So thank you again drew. We appreciate your time brother and we'll talk to you soon. All right, thanks for having me on. Thanks for that. Powder, blue, drew. Mood. Thanks for coming on. Yeah, really appreciate it, man. From the land of our quarterback, the Oregon. That's right. Yes, over in Oregon. Where it's probably not as cold as it is in Idaho. You son of a bitch. Yeah, it's just like the die hard bolt club is everywhere and like another set. I kind of became like an Oregon football fan because of it. There's a lot of them. I'm more invested. If I see that pop up on more prone to go to that than any of the other ones. And I think that some of the college Oregon fans are charger fans now because you scratch our back will scratch yours. You know, go ducks. We'll keep an eye out for you. Keep an eye out for us. No, the Oregon team is no slouch. So yeah, probably good for us to keep an eye on it. Those jerseys just helmets are sick. The one that's like mirrored. There's something that we haven't done something that the Chargers in the Oregon ducks have in common jerseys. And sick quarterbacks, am I right? Yeah. Same guy. Yeah, thank you, powder blue drew for talking with Kev. We really appreciate it. And now it's time to go on to our biweekly segment. It's bolt history and I'm seeing what he's talking about and I am really.

"At some point between the late eighteen. Hundreds and early nineteen hundreds the sun cannon fell out of use but in nineteen eighty-six a group of locals thought it could help boost tourism in the body so they formed the sun cannon club. They raised money to fix up old tower and in the years since the sun canon has become somewhat of a tourist attraction more than forty thousand people have visited in the last twelve years. Which is a big deal for a town. We're only seven thousand. People live one guy told me that the daughter of an american president wants came and watched them fire it. Though when i asked which president nobody could remember on the random friday. I came to watch the sun cannon salute. There were about ten people there. The volunteer in charge of firing the cannon was gone yet akiva and his grandson ten year old cannon near in training franck own defense. The two of them are standing on the steps leading up to the cannon tower in front of a small group of tourists is wearing his grandpa's jacket the words so kennel club or the sun. Cannon club are printed across the french the jacket just below his knees. His grandpa yawn is quizzing him on sun cannon facts he says the cannon weighs two hundred kilograms or around four hundred forty pounds. It's not loaded but it could hold a six pound cannonball about yawn checks the time it's twelve fifty ten minutes still go. Time helps him. Slide the cannon out of the tower so the barrel is pointing out of an opening in the brick. They load gunpowder out of an old ketchup bottle and into the canon one of the tourists. A little norwegian girl covers. Her ears starts to run away. her mom says don't worry we'll tell us before he shoots. It's twelve fifty two. There's time for you on to explain how the cannon works don. Lets us peek. Inside the tower the sun is shining in through a long narrow opening in the wall at one. pm when it reaches its highest point in the sky. The sun will line up perfectly with this opening in the winter. It comes in through the lower part if the window in the summer near the top until the bullet up with them they couldn't yang demonstrates how the opening directs the light towards a magnifying glass. It's the cavaliers ears job to adjust the angle of the magnifying glass. Every couple of weeks so the light from the sun is directed. Precisely the butt of the canon if everything is lined up perfectly. The light focuses on the charge of gunpowder at one pm. The heat ignites the gunpowder. And the cannon is supposed to fire yawn. says it's hard to get the angle exactly right sometimes the cannon fires a couple of minutes early or a little bit early but today has a different problem. So it's cloudy out. I say no no no so dog man only the sun will not be firing the cannon today but fortunately yang team prepared with a plan b. Instead of sun. he'll use fire. We'll paint them in the one at all. She hands a lighter to front and says was thinking. You could do the honors. I know how good you are at lighting things on fire. He says to the tourists. That's pretty much. All the two of us have in common drunk. Looks a little nervous. He puts on a pair of noise cancelling headphones that seemed too big for his head. Yawn sons him into the tower to check the time. Snark says it's still not one twelve fifty five five minutes to go. John says after flank lights the fuse. He'll have a little over two seconds to sprint out of the tower down the steps again. There's no canon ball in the canon. But it's still going to be loud chunk says should i light it now.

"Some cannons have been around since the sixteen hundreds some of them were used on ships. The position of the sun triggered them to fire at almost exactly twelve. Pm so everyone on board would know what time it was in the seventeen hundreds. You might also have heard a son cannon in fancy park in england or france or even on a large estate where they were used to signal lunchtime in fact when son cannons were in style throughout the seventeen eighteen hundreds most of them were owned by european nobility and that how a son canon ended up in a small town in rural sweden the sun cannon in all to the body has its own tower. It's up on top of a hill and it looks like a fifteen foot tall version of a rook. That chess piece. that looks like a little castle. it's round made out of brick and there's a long narrow slot carved into the south facing side. It's been here since eighteen fifty three and it was built by the local barron and his family. The all those fats. These days it's cared for by a team of volunteers who call themselves the sun cannon club there a delightful gang of retired people who've taken responsibility for preserving the town's history but the whole organization is totally unpretentious and they're a little loosey-goosey when it comes to the foggy lor surrounding basan cannon but at least three different people including my grandmother told me this story back in the mid eighteen hundreds the barron and his wife took a trip to paris. Supposedly the baroness who was born. A commoner was terrified of boats so instead of making the relatively short trip across the baltic to mainland europe. They'd spent somewhere between two and three years. Travelling to france in a horse and carriage by finland latvia with wayne lia poland. You get the idea. I was able to verify almost none of the story. But i'm told somewhere between one and two kids were born on the way from sweden to france and when the family finally made it there and saw the sun cannon in a garden they thought would be kind of fun to have one of those to fire off parties back at home.

Was the obvious choice to succeed her as the curator of astronomical photographs at harvard college observatory but this proved to be controversial. Even though fleming had served in that role for more than a decade harvard president abbott lawrence lowell called her hiring under his predecessor. Charles eliot quote anomalous lull. Did not expect this anomaly. To be repeated he was not expecting another woman to be hired to replace her so pickering placed cannon in this position anyway. Although this wasn't a formal appointment through the university so that made her pay was lower than it would have been otherwise and her name was not listed in the harvard directory as curator of astronomical photographs. Cannon took over work on the henry draper catalogue stellar spectra building on the earlier work of meena.

"Making when any jumped cannons booklet on her trip to spain and her camera at camera was being used as a souvenir at the world's columbian exposition. Meena fleming was there giving an address on women's work in astronomy. She said in part quote photography as applied to astronomy is one of the greatest advances which has been made in this. The oldest of sciences and this same advance has opened up a comparatively extensive field for women's work in this department and then she ended this address by saying quote while we cannot maintain that in everything woman is man's equal yet in many things. Her patience perseverance and method make her his superior therefore let us hope that in astronomy which now affords a large field for women's work in skill. She may as has been the case in several other sciences. at least prove herself his equal. So this idea that there was women's work to be done in astronomy that was well established by the time. Any jump cannon's started her study of the subject at ratcliffe essentially especially in the late nineteenth century women came to these roles with a range of education and experience everything from an interest in astronomy and a knack for math to an advanced degree in the subject is typically very detailed also very repetitive work involving making calculations analyzing data and keeping an organizing records. Women were thought to be particularly suited for this thanks to the perceived traits that fleming described in her address but for most women and there also was not a lot of opportunity to advance in these jobs..
