Mike Gallagher: Joe Biden Is Just Filling a Checkbox for His Next Supreme Court Nominee

"If we try to blow up the nomination process, listen, we could spend all day talking about how disgraceful it is that Biden appears poised to nominate a black woman only because he made a campaign promise that he was that he's going to nominate a black woman for the Supreme Court. Discriminatory, that's awful, that's dehumanizing. That's insulting. If anybody took a position that is one of the most consequential positions in America, only because she checked a box and the guy who nominated you stood up in Charleston, South Carolina at a campaign debate and promised he would nominate a black woman and now he's stuck. I guess he can't back out of that. In order to pacify and appease the lunatic progressives who are trying to pull the strings, I'd be ashamed.

Caller Champ Describes the Moment the FBI Knocked on His Door

"Back to champ, who was wrapping up his story about what happened to him on January 1 he comes home, FBI agent at his door champ. I hate to keep interrupting you, but now you can finish the story. Oh, absolutely. So they sent a female agent up from Charleston, South Carolina, like I mentioned, I live in a remote area of the pisco national forest and lo and behold, and FBI is here. She reviews photographs, videos, mentions and I have a video of Ashley batt actually. That was the one that she wanted me to forward to her. And overall, the questions were geared at, are you a member of a militia? Do you want to kill anybody? Because I do have guns in the house and I did not want her to come into my house. She didn't have a warrant to come into my house. And the overall tone was just really sort of pressing the finger down. And after having been there, I've heard your other callers say, we were singing gospel songs. There were people there. Iranians for Trump. They were Chinese. There were groups of people. It was asshole, Colin Powell addressed the Senate because they used to work for senator strom Thurman. I saw him address the Senate after the Gulf War and outside of that. This was the second most patriotic event I've ever attended. Then, to see the ramifications and to hear the reporting on it was so asinine compared to what actually was occurring while we were there. And this being blown into what it is, in my opinion, this thing was set up. It was a play. It was meant to make Trump people seem like bad people. When I've never seen a unification of people from all over the world, colors, races, you name it, all loving, respectful, very, very good people. And what this country is being told is an absolute lie that the stuff that comes out yes, they comparing this to 9 11 pro harbor. My grandmother's first husband was the first American killed in Pearl Harbor. I take extreme offense to saying that what we were doing was anything other than being patriots of this wonderful nation, we are blessed to live in, which is the best nation anywhere in the entire

"It's a pretty fair assessment overall. Yeah it's a little either walk around at night in charleston than i would once certain parts charleston. It's i guess it's the same in new orleans to then. I should walk that back. I think every city. There's a part that you don't really wanna walk around at night. Like columbus says that yet. No you're right but boston has. That new york for sure has at charleston. Did skits bad quickly and sneaky like like you just all sudden like you're like oh this is like well you turn a corner like different. You know not quite like new york city. Does you know clearly. Blocked block can change but is that So with charleston. Is that like a lot of people. Probably find themselves in precarious situations because like isn't like isn't king. Avid is the main. And that's like all the bars and stuff are. Yeah and so if you straight stumble out of a bar and go like two blocks over the wrong way like. I don't think it's quite like that necessarily because it's like a big thing in vegas to is like. Oh yeah you to two streets off like the main strip and it's like i think it's more getting closer like college charleston and then like thinking okay. I'm like on college campus. But it's like as soon as the campus ends is currently just a little iffy you know but it's more what it is This was one of the few times in this episode. Who when there at the waffle house that someone challenges bourdain on his food selection. What gordon wasn't gonna waffle. Oh yeah and that's see. That is a thing that you would think about the houses you know get the waffle but the waffles. Really good at the house. It's my favorite waffle. But just like. It's very similar to like joe rogan. Like any guests. That goes on there. Like there's like a meshing in the personalities where lake joe rogan assays from ridiculous shit and the personal be like. Yeah i don't know or like something like that but the only person or one of the few people that can be like no. You're full of shit. What are we talking about bill burr. Yes like he can go on there and just be like what are we doing. What are you talking about now. it's like chapelle like just one of those equals you know somebody is equal or like higher stature and that's kind of the similar vibe that you get here where it's was like i'm not getting waffle broccoli. Erin saying if you don't get a waffle what are you doing like your unit. So that's kind of cool to see like because you just never really see that now. It's true i didn't even think of that but you're right but and it's not even like a thing where like board games like bothered by it. It's just right nobody else's say and shit you know they're just like okay. Yeah it's just the only people. I think that can do that as like a chef. Focus episode like this. Or like the copenhagen with rene epi so that's offer random notes. Else yeah i really. Don't i mean it's one of those where the episodes really good. But it's kinda like just go watch it man you know. I think i have more to say sometimes when the bad episode the episode..

Nobody really talks about how aliens. And they're making a fifth one. Currently is it the crystal skull cap. They're making a fifth one right now. He's over in italy doing it. Because i saw something on talk. It was like him in a golf cart waving everybody in his indiana jones gear. That's pretty cool. How old is harrison ford now. Eighty something. Because i think he broke like another lakers. We broke his foot when he's doing star wars the The latest one that he did He also like he landed his plane on the wrong runway at like san francisco or something crashed a plane. I think in a golf course right. Yeah and then he just broke his arm or something i thought on the set of this movie might have do you know. He was married in one thousand nine hundred sixty four. The first time. I'm been married three times say multiple times but i wouldn't have like that just seems like so. How old was he was b. Nine so seventy nine now. Shit i mean what twenty. Twenty two twenty two when he got married. It's also a really long time ago. Yeah that's the year. The mustang came out. What else random notes. I got from somebody who's never been to charleston. Is it fair to say. And i wrote this down. This is just something. I thought i'd during the episode is it fair to say it's a more accessible version of savannah in a nicer version of new orleans. Somebody who's never been any of those places so i'm completely talking on my ass when you say accessible what he means like easier just easier to get to like savannah. Seems like like i know savannah. Has its own airport. But i'm sure like oh it just seems harder to get to Yeah i think so. I think it's a little more popular than savannah in. It's a little. And i haven't been to savannah in a while but It's definitely a different vibe. I think it's they're they're very different. They're kind of the same but they're all they're very different And then yeah it's it's just cleaner than new orleans. It's obviously smaller. You're not gonna have like. I'm sure there's probably more good restaurants in new orleans because it's a bigger city could be. I mean it's tough to say. That's also subjective. Yeah i don't. I don't know i just i know turkey in the wolf and i don't know any other commander's palace. The famous one famous french horn. Think they like turtle soup Need to go back to new orleans. there's a bunch of new orleans always on like the james beard list for lake the southeast or whatever geographic category finds itself in..

"Thanks. do this is great pretty much. what's going on one else. Year bill murray yep overrated underrated properly rated properly rated. I think his persona and his movies like properly rated okay. I would say slightly overrated for movies or for persona definitely for movies. Because i think when he was blake during the eighties when he was like a really big actor like i remember here. I think it was ghostbusters. Like they don't even know if he was going to do it or not like he said yes didn't sign anything. It was like the first day shooting. They're like i don't know if he's going to be here. He said he was going to do it. Yeah he's still shit like that like he. That's kinda lame. I mean does like show up. He did show up. We'll be like if you know. He like famous for just having an answering machine. You want to get in touch with them. Oh i just. I just meant like if you're going to commit something like let everybody know that for sure like you're committed. Don't you like yeah like a year ago. Then you never never did anything else about you. Know what i mean. We don't know what happened. Maybe there's a contract dispute and he was like. Hey fuck you pay me. That's possible i guess. Yeah but it would make sense because he is that way so it would make sense if that's really what he was like. Oh yeah. I guess i'll do. I'll go in there today. But he this was actually like the first. There's part there's a part when he's in this episode where you actually the stick like is gone. I think it's like when they're at dinner. I was like oh it's bill murray the normal guy. Yeah not bill. Murray lake trying to be all crazy in public in like you know photo bomb somebody or whatever you know what i mean. Yeah do you get some trying to be crazy to do. You think he just just genuinely enjoys fucking with people. I mean it could be that it could just be like. He knows he might just have good camera like our public awareness. When it's like this is what it is expected of him in public and like okay like that's the role that i play to like. I don't know i've never talked to him. Probably never will so. Yeah i know he. This famous stories like someone just standing at an intersection or crosswalk and new york city and he just goes up behind them puts his hands over. There is he's like this. Is bill murray. Nobody will ever believe you and then just walks away like just a fuck with that person. You're gonna have this story of like is not bill. Murray do that and he's a lot.

"Nobody has anything that they're actually talking about kind of thing. You know what i mean like. It's especially i feel it. Comedy parked a lot of the co comedian ones. I think it's just. It feels very like every episode of same. And you're just kind of like you could like space out in the middle of like for thirty minutes and you pop right back in billingham. Think i missed anything else going on. I think we were just spoiled with good content for so long announced. Like there's so much that it's gotten more down. I guess. I don't know i'm gonna why it's happening like that You're at boiled peanuts. I'd now i don't think so. Really good like the last seen. They're sitting there eating peanuts. And drinking some westbrook brewery beer some white-tie which is their their wheat beer. Just really good. It's got a sour beers. Yeah their servers. Are i think better than the white type at the white tizoc. What they were known for initially. Okay it's like they're big one at first and now i think they're anybody that likes westbrook closer sours remember. What's in there though. That's like a little different. Is it coriander. Maybe that isn't one. 'cause there was like a lemon coriander one that we brought back from nashville. Yeah see because they headed at cork dorks. she's like they're big wine and spirit. Emporium down in nashville. They like to -cations because they have like shit tunnel wine so i got to wander through their house fun yeah coriander orange peel. Lemongrass ginger root. So it's a really good summer beer but you like to of good. Teach the sit. There drinkable six back. Maybe you could. I'm not that guy. I'm not that guy pow not that guy also in that scene did you notice. Data's a really fucked up feet. Yeah because all the traveling and stuff urged genetics or what his feet were jitsu man. Yeah that's probably true. Because his toes look like they were all like ben every which way like one of those like Yet one phone stands and it has like the little prongs and you can bend them whichever way you want you kind of look like that. Also him trying to bait that hook just like gave me flashbacks. I had not fish much in my life. But i hate trying to put something on a hold all because he pokes himself in a moist convinced. Like i'm going to get the hook in my finger and then i'm going to push through the other side of my skin in order to clip it and then pull it back out. It's like I guess it's sort of an irrational fear although it's slightly rational yet it's way harder to do that with live bait. Yeah versus if you're just bayton with like a dead fisher because it's not moving your hand so it's way easier to just like okay. Put it here and then hold it here and then pop through kind of with your with your hands. So i get it i guess. The crabs are eaten all their fish. Which i told us funny somebody would just keep casting the fuck and then realize like after five fish that it's just like cast and right into crap little claw he's like..

Thanks to marry ellen win for a one time gift via pay pow. I really appreciate that as well this week. Charleston south carolina once again finds itself threatened by the british. The decision by south carolina leaders to cut and run from the union was a controversial one. That would divide the state for years. Governor rutledge did not seem to suffer too much political fallout from his decision and continued to remain active in politics. Relish had actually already resigned the governorship in seventeen seventy eight that time he had vetoed the new constitution which he thought was to democratic and the legislature overruled him and he resigned from office but by early seventeen seventy nine. He had returned to office. Despite his offer to the british to just bail out of the war and secede from the union with the rest of the state's rutledge remained in office and remained fairly popular among voters apparently until seventeen eighty when he was forced out by term limits. Even after that rutledge would go on to serve in the continental congress and would later serve on the supreme court including a brief stint as chief justice the british of course we're not done with charleston in seventeen seventy nine as we will see when we get to seventeen eighty in that effort rutledge would be more supportive of a defense of the city not that it helped if you want to read more generally about south carolina in the american revolution in may want to take a look at this week's book recommendation. It's called battleground of freedom. South carolina in the revolution by nat and sam hillborn. This is a relatively short book and just over two hundred pages and it has lots of maps and illustrations in it. It focuses on the military history of the war in south carolina. If that region is of interest to you then this is a good resource. The authors are a husband and wife team who published this book back in nineteen seventy. You can buy the book. And of course i have links to it on amazon or you can just look at it online at archived dot org as always..

Colleges Are Going Big to Incentivize Student Vaccinations

"Colleges are trying to convince their students to get the covert vaccine with all kinds of incentives. Free parking free zip-lining even free tuition. Npr's listen adnia covers higher. Education has been looking into this morning. Good morning before. We start with the incentives. A lot of colleges are also saying. This is non-negotiable right. You have to be vaccinated. That's right more than six hundred colleges are requiring the vaccine for fall and once we get a full. Fda approval on one dot. Number will probably go up. I should just note that colleges have long required vaccine so it's not completely new. A few private colleges have announced fees for students who aren't vaccinated but for the most part schools are trying positive reinforcements with some pretty flashy incentives. One fund one is the college of charleston wants ninety percent of students vaccinated women happens. The school's president is going to sit in a dunk tank and let students take a shot at him. That is only an incentive for a certain type of what else did you find. College is doing well. The big one obviously is that you could win thousands of dollars in tuition costs. So that's happening. A number of places including including purdue where ten vaccinated students could win up to nine thousand dollars which is in state tuition for a year Our interns nee. Dave found around the country students could win football tickets free laptops at west virginia university. They're offering two hundred and fifty dollars gift. Cards to chick-fil-a. That's a lot of chicken but i think for free tuition. At ohio university students could win a photo. Shoot dinner with the men's basketball coach. Or and i love this.

"Says search great Burgers, you know, if you're looking for maybe a little higher wage Adoption Halls Chophouse on King Street does an amazing job as you can imagine is very heavy, but they do some a great Seafood there to the service is impeccable Charleston Grill. Located in Belmond Charleston Place hotel has been a Mainstay in Charleston for longer than I can count and you know, I think a lot of people don't think about eating in a hotel under here in Charleston. But if you're looking for a white 2000 Honda an experience and you're not going to be anything better than Charleston Grill, you know, there's a lot of other great seafood places, which I think a lot of people think of when they're in Charleston Hank's Seafood is absolutely amazing ordinary, which is an old Bank building is an amazing seafood restaurant really really just a special experience and their sister restaurant stick. I think is one of the most coveted reservations and all the Charleston area and that is a menu that changes almost daily, you know, it's not just one type of fare on the menu, but it really gives you a great feel of what religion has to offer from a lot of different aspects wage. And the chef in the restaurant are all James Beard award winners. So, you know, I can keep going on and on and it's not just one type of figure. It's not judge one Ambience to the restaurant which are restaurants that you're going to get. It's a whole Gambit of different experiences and that brings up and we've talked a little bit about covid-19 and how the areas handle that are most restaurants and attractions open for business right now. Yeah, so South Carolina, we think our lawmakers here and have done an amazing job of things are best plan for all of us. You know, I think I heard a great thing when the the offset of this a few months ago that were building a flame War were flying and so, you know, I think to a certain extent involving Bond and just trying to figure out is to go and I think that our lawmakers here, he'll put us in a very good position to succeed and also make sure our businesses can succeed to the best of their ability off. I'm keeping everybody safe at the same time. Right or restaurants are open at 50% capacity right now and they're also offering outdoor seating. So a lot of restaurants previously did not have outdoor seating still are now offering outdoor seating. All of our retail space is open right now. I think right now it is limited capacity and Retail but everything is eligible to be open in that Arena. All of our tourism attractions are off or eligible to be open and all of our hotels are eligible to be able to you know, I think we've have just a few hotels that either open today or tomorrow, but everybody else has been open and took everything you can do pre-coated you can do now so, you know, I like I said, I think we've done a really good job of making sure that a balancing the fact that people need to be saved for business is also need to be and and I think we're well ahead of a lot of other states and in what we're able to offer and things that are open and I want to put a lot of trouble advisor to ask is you know, why Charles, Georgia? Now is not very distant populated area. Right? We don't have near as many Travelers right now as we normally do because of career. So you're you're going to be able to distance even more because of that and we have our reaches home and you know, you can do a lot of social distancing on our beaches in our waterways. We have, you know, amazing waterways here in Charleston where you can fish paddleboard you can you know, can dolphin wash or just so many things to do outdoors is a city that it is appreciated. It is best from in from the outdoors. So what's some local information that visitors need to know about visiting Charleston. Yeah right. Now we're off, you know, like I said, we're our businesses are doing a great job of balancing being open and keeping everybody safe. You know, I think that every a lot of people want to get out right now, especially in the Leisure Market, but there's too many concerns one is safety in what is what one of the second as well. So so back to what we were saying there's there's you know, we're doing a great job and making sure that our visitors in our people that live here are safe, but there's a dog A lot of things for people to do two things that I love to tell travel advisors to tell their clients to do when I talked to earlier is go to South Broad Street just get lost Just Lose Yourself and not be honest Network texture and and everything that has to offer cuz you're not going to find that anywhere else in America really is kind of an old world European field question the way we preserve but the houses and things like that wage and there's there's a neighborhood in Mount Pleasant called The Old Village right on the water. It has some beautiful houses and I'll tell travel advisors if you can get your clients to fight through their it's absolutely beautiful again blah blah, very large overhanging live oak trees, you know, I keep going the word Ambience and it's just amazing in that area. There's also a bridge in that area of town in the Old Village on Pitt Street bridge and as strong well and you can see it's an old bridge is not using a more people walk on it. They do yoga. They go swimming in the water right there and they finish their and it's probably a general fifteen minute walk out of 10 or 15 minute log. But you can see so many different parts of Charleston cuz because of our waterways it's so segmented. You can see the downtown historic district Sea Palms. You can see Sullivan's Island. So you just gives you a unique perspective and I mentioned those two things to do in Charleston because it's not something that visitors usually do. It's not something you read about on the internet. That's something you can buy take it for wondering and you can do whatever you want to do it. I think the biking is a great thing to do in the downtown historic district 5 through the area Walter the area but I think people should always experience Charleston from the water as well go out go out and Charleston Harbor kind of like I was saying in from the history bridge and just gives you a unique perspective of the city in the different areas of our our area, right? Yeah. There's no place like Charleston. So well, we appreciate you tie Mike. Thanks so much for being on the show today. Well, thank you very much for having me.

"Of Charleston, they think of our downtown historic district the walkability of it off. Which is very much the house of activity the heartbeat of the Charleston area right something. We've really tried to highlight the last few years as we have five beautiful beaches between twenty or forty five minutes from downtown historic district. So it's kind of two different vacations. You do have this great downtown historic district has an old world European field, but then you have these V beautiful beaches that are, you know, very close kind of you city and see what kind of start from the north and work our way down. South Palms are supposed to follow homes. It has a wonderful Resort on there called Wild Dunes golf resort. We have some amazing home sites for rent. Amazing Village is Oceanfront that has some great culinary options on the resort have world-class Tennis Center to golf courses and Spa one hotel and they're actually busy right now. So it's really a great option for right now with what's going on with code for social distancing right social injustice on the beach and you can also essentially distance in a villa or a dog. You know, so we're seeing a big Surge and people looking to do bills are houses because of the social distancing aspect, you know, you can you having kitchen get multiple veterans you are living the area. So it's not like a hotel were passing a lot of people at one time, you know in our hotel is right now are doing an amazing job of covid-19 specialization of sanitizing and extra measures. I don't want you to think that I am taking away from that was great. Very family-friendly. They do have a little cluster there a bars and restaurants a few other smaller hotels right there too very much a family or in a beach if you have class or looking for something a little more quiet a little more family-oriented maybe a little more upper-scale but that's going to be a great option. Okay? Why don't you the south of that really connected is Sullivan's Island? And unfortunately, sometimes I'll just need any hotels. I do have a lot of rental houses. So good grade for pray for families great for social distancing problems. It's always on I think are very similar and some of them. Has a great collection of bars and restaurants where you can actually just park your car and walked all of them and you can walk to the beach really the latest culinary fair, you know is a great burger joint is an Italian restaurant. There's an ice cream shop and all of them double is kind of you know, bars and places to go hang out and have a drink and things like that. So often option again for you know a little bit more quiet or Beach a little bit more upper-scale what they haven't talked about with our beaches as they're all hard compact things, right? So there's also a lot of room for when you walk onto the beach to walk on water starts. So you can use so many things on our beaches here. You can run you can play the law you can allows you can play in the water we get in the water. Mid-may to mid-october right now. It's a little over eighty degree water is really old. It's not Rocky at all. You can ride a bike. So there's just so many things to do there slightly to the south of Sullivan's Island is Folly Beach and that's going to be the cell of the downtown historic dog. It's going to be about 25 minutes from the downtown area. And that's why old lady a fragment Solomon's Island. Really more of a younger crowd. I think it's kind of quirky of a collectible. There's a there's large community there bars and restaurants and and shopping and you know local Goods of Surfing they do have one hotel that is on the beach and that's a good option. But they also have a lot of rental houses to if you're looking for something more vibrant, maybe a little bit younger crowd. That's really going to be a great area. And that's the same distance from the downtown historic district was $7 and all the pumps. Okay. The salad is Kiawah Island that's going to be about 45 minutes from downtown historic district and they have an amazing amazing golf golf resort there on Kiawah Island Golf Resort has five beautiful golf courses one that's hosted several major championships. As for the great golf courses world-class Tennis Center wage as a 250 fiber hotel right on the beach very very luxury orientated. They also have a lot of houses and buildings on their rental program to about eighty houses and four hundred dollars just on their personal rep. Program not to mention other rental programs around Charleston that offer stuff out there ten miles of bike path. I think it's a great option for the remaining getaway solo get away a Family Getaway just a lot to do right there, you know for any kind of education you have and then self has island is going to be pretty much run right there at golf resort about 5 minutes away again about 45 minutes from the downtown historic district. And that is another Resort Community. It has Villas and houses for rent. They do not have a hotel but they do have a great tennis center too. Great golf courses wage. You are very quiet in another great option. If you're looking to be on a resort have a way from everything a little bit more quiet at that social distancing in a house or Ebola right? I know I purposely spent about a month on Folly Beach at the Holiday Inn there. There was a Country Music Television. We were there for the Coastal Carolina fair and I kept my door open at night turn the AC off. Normally the first thing I do when get in the hotel is see how low the air conditioner will go but I I had it off had the door open and the ways, you know crashing against the shore that put me to sleep every night. That was definitely a yeah a cool place to stay. I did also color my hair blond cuz I was at the beach for a month and well, you know when in Rome yeah, I guess I think I found all the pictures of that and and burned them. So it's something about family base. I got a younger crowd. Yeah. It's a very Vibrant Community. Absolutely. Like you mentioned the downtown area when I mean we know it's beautiful place. What are some of the must-see places too? You gotta see and where are the places that you just have to eat at when you're in the down here? Oh, well, that's a loaded question is going to be a long podcast. If you if want me to talk about all the places you gotta you know, you know, Charleston is such a culinary experience. You know, I think that so many people are struggling for food right now. Yeah, but I think that the amount of people that choose our vacation destination because of you know, big component wage chooses because of restaurants is amazing right now. I know when travel one of the first things I do is say hey, where where's 30 right? Where do I have such a big heart of traveling and I don't think that you're going to find another place to the size of Charleston is going to offer the amazing food that we have and it's not it's not all just one type of food. I think a lot places you go. There's one specialization food, you know until I think you could probably say oh what was you know the seafood probably right or the little country, you know figures probably vary but we have so so many great places not only different kinds of food different styles of restaurants, you know, we have great white table qualifying dining and everybody loves to do that, but you don't want to do that for every meal, right? You know, we we have a huge influx of laid-back casual restaurants here in the last five or six years that note, reservations required. And so I'm going to take reservations places where you can take the kids or you can take your spouse or you can take your friends. You can walk out on your check and not feel like you signed over half your bank account. That's good. That's the starting point. You know, I think Leon's.

"Today we're talking about beautiful Charleston South Carolina. Welcome to the family vacationer with Rob and Danny good so do podcasts for families on the Move Welcome Friends. I'm Rob and I'm Danny and this is the family vacationer episode 22 friends do us a favor and hit that subscribe button. We'd love for you all to come with us on this journey right now when the middle of what we're calling our domestic travel series, we understand that travelling great distances right now is problematic for a ton of reasons. So what we're doing is covering places that would make a good road trip and this week we look at one of the most beautiful cities in the country Charleston South Carolina of the city was founded in 1670s Charlestown as a little nod King Charles II of England now that settlement was actually abandoned in 1684 the correct. Site and it quickly became one of the five largest cities in North America within ten years. Now this Southern port city has played an important part in the creation and strength of the United States. And in 2016. The city was voted the best city in the world by travel Leisure magazine lofty praise indeed. That's right. So what makes this town the best city in the world to answer that question, we've welcome. Eyecon. He's the travel industry sales manager for Explorer Charleston exit South Carolina native and received a degree in Hotel restaurant and tourism management home from the University of South Carolina shortly thereafter. I began working for Explorer Charleston and golf sales in a sense move to the travel industry and international markets access. He loves living in the world's number one situation his wife and three daughters and can't imagine living or working anywhere else. Welcome to the show like thank you for calling me. I appreciate you coming on so, you know, first of all, we've mentioned that several times already but that 2016 designation free shuttle Leisure as the world's best city set the bar pretty high. So in your mind what makes Charleston the world's best city and why should families big Charleston for vacation? Yeah. I think it's a pretty simple answer is probably not an answer that that a lot of people would think of off the top of your head construction does have so many great attributes and get so many accolades. But the one thing that I thought people and I think a lot of other people in the tourism industry here will tell you is the people entrusted people are trusting are so hospitable. I think a lot of places you go. You know, you feel life is sometimes it's busy or you're not really welcomed by the people that live there that's not everywhere but some places and I think control should you'll you'll find a people want you to enjoy the city as much as they do we log Living in Charleston. I'm not a native of Charleston myself have been here for about thirteen years and grew up going here coming here. And the people here are so hospitable. They're so welcoming. And and what we live in a day where we want you to appreciate that really want you to experience that. So I think that is the number one reason that people should visit Charleston, you know, when walk down the street is visitor, you're going to get a hey how you doing from some of the locals. A lot of them was just welcoming feeling that issue. Honestly not want to leave when you get here. And that you're right that's not true. Everywhere you go and you expect that as a traveler when you're on the road somewhere and you're going to a tourist destination. You would think that one would be friendly, but that's not always the case. But Charleston definitely definitely has a good deal of southern hospitality. Yeah, you know Charleston is rich in history. I know when I was younger, spent some time at Patriots Point home. I spent the night on USS Yorktown when I was in Boy Scouts that was a little scary for a kid we on a big ship like that, but we enjoyed it but from being an early settlement coming forward. Each person is a historic town. Can you speak to some of that history? You know what landmarks should families definitely see when they come to town? Yeah. Yes. So Charleston is history is very important to Charleston. We live in every day. We do a wonderful job of preserving that history and then educational light we know it makes us something special. It's something that we enjoy everyday living here and it's actually the number one reason. There's a Charles, you know, we're we're careful to present that history in a light that makes everything educational and I think without the preservation that we offer here in Charleston wage. You would not feel as close to the history or visitors were not feel as close to the history was we do, you know, we had a lot of resource. There were that were used in several different Wars the first one being for multi John Sullivan's Island with a huge part of Revolutionary War. Yeah for Sumter. Very close to Fort Moultrie was a huge part of the the war between states. We have several Antebellum applications such as milk employees journal great educational experiences. We have six wonderful Museum homes in the downtown historic district of Charleston, you could have every one of them all of them built in the Seventeen and eighteen o s one of them is actually still lived in by the owner was just the cal-line manship and one thing that I tell people that they don't think about a lot is really just just wrong. Downtown and get along and there's some amazing architecture. We we do a very good job here again or preserving not only you know, Office Buildings and things like that but houses wage, but people still live in there's very strict standards about what they can do to the exterior of houses or their commission that's in charge of that just as an amazing job and make making sure that the same as your views of the house or preserved in the manner in which they should be so one of the things that I don't travel advisors all over the place whenever I told them I say walk downtown especially South of Broadway Street and just tell your clients to get lost and you're really going to discover some amazing architecture beautiful Ambiance beautiful gardens just really an amazing amount of money in that area. My son had a fit over the Pineapple Fountain the way he called. Yeah. I was actually, you know, a huge symbol of Charleston and for those that are not familiar with birth Apple is a symbol of hospitality and friendship. So it's what we use here in Charleston to let everybody know that they're welcome here. And we want them to come visit and stay as long they want. You were talking about the history. We had a game store in Charlestown one time and it's a fun way to get a lot of history there. What do you think about the goes towards the Gulf Shores are amazing. We have a lot of companies in the downtown historic district that do them.

There are five distinct Beach communities in the area Folly Beach Kiawah Island Isle of Palms Sullivan's Island and Seabrook Island long. Yeah, you talk about each community and and maybe the different personalities of each and you know, just the cover the general where to stay what to do and most importantly, you know for me where to eat but it's also does have a lot of places to eat.

Were all over the place to charleston arizona territory. It said that it wasn't unusual to see a dead body or two on one of the town's street if you're on your way too early works shift if the body had a gun in hand and the wound was on his front knowing even bothered. Look for the killer. You'd think with people like the clanton. Zehr outlaw cowboys. Just outside of town. The charleston would be a rough and rowdy place with a horrible reputation for murder mayhem and the occasional gunfight on the street most of its bad reputation was due to the newspapers. Back east drumming up the excitement to sell their papers. of course. there was some trouble in death in town. They're always would be in a western down but there was never successful robbery. One robbery attempt to the tombstone mining company resulted in the murder of mining engineer. Mr pete but no silver was taken. The tombstone epitaph reported in may of eighteen eighty two that charleston was well regulated and free from turmoil and that it was one of the most peaceful places we were ever.

"Ghost towns and interviews with people have had their own experiences at these sites will include our own expeditions with Vira paranormal adventure machine. A forty foot class. Aarp scary stories from around the world and from here in the states look what we and others have experienced in our small towns Charleston. Millville and the battle of the Bulls Arizona territory. So let's do this in chronological order or will be jumping around in the space of about forty years or so. The Mormon Battalion was only religion-based unit in. Us military industry the unit served from July of eighteen forty six to July eighteen forty seven during the Mexican American war. The battalion was a group of around five hundred sixty or so latter day saint men. They were led by Mormon officers who are under the command of regular army officers during the year that they were in service they marched over two thousand miles from Illinois to Council Bluffs Iowa to San Diego California via Kansas City Santa Fe and Tucson. Their March opened a southern wagon route that aided in America's westward expansion three hundred of the Mormon Battalion arrived in the small Mexican town of San Diego. After about a six month march the rest of the battalion wore out sick and in need of rest in medical attention had been sent to Pueblo Colorado for the winter all the women and children that had been traveling with them were sent there as well. They eventually made their way to Salt Lake City Valley on the way to San Diego. The battalion made a dip to the south near Present Day Sierra Vista as they built a wagon trail westward. Along the San Pedro River. They had their one and only armed conflict. Abet one sided with a bunch of bulls stampeded started and the animals were on the run. The Mormon Battalion shot ten to fifteen in the wild beasts and two of their battalion were injured during the fray. Today there's historical marker along Charleston Road at the San Pedro River. Memorialize the battle in San Diego at Rosecrans Park Point Loma and San Bernardino at Glen Helen. Regional Park there are memorials to the Mormon Battalion and all that they did help with America's westward expansion about three quarters of a mile to the north and a little over thirty years after the battle of the Bulls Shit the ghost towns of Charleston and Millville Arizona. They're separated by the San Pedro River near Charleston was the place where the mill workers and support folk lived. They worked The two mills located across the river to the East and Millville these mills owned by the Tombstone Mailing Mining Company and the Corbin million mining company crushed or stamped your into a fine powder. That was then run through a smelter. Smelting is a heat process. That with the right chemicals is used to reduce the ore to decompose it. So the base metal silver in this case can be separated. The mill started operation in eighteen. Seventy nine and between them they produced one point four million dollars in silver Bouillon and just over a year. There wasn't enough water in the San Pedro River to run one mill properly. Let alone to that. Were set up there. So it was decided the dam would be built debt gird et Al Jefflin's business partner was the man that started the stamp mill. Millville so it was up to him to take care of the damn issue. He made a contract with the Mormons in the town of Saint David about twenty miles north of Charleston to bring oxen and hard rock to begin to dam the river. The men of Saint David built a mile and a half of ditching bloom to get the water from the lake to the ten stamp mill. It was a bit lopsided because they needed the mill to be built so there was a reason for the dam and it wasn't made yet. The mill required the water to run as soon as it was built. There wasn't enough lumber to build the mill either. So Gertz people set up sawmills what Yuka mountains about ten miles away to bring enough lumber to construct the tombstone mill and then the Corbin Mel there would eventually be six mills pounding away. Twenty four seven long San Pedro River. The water was used in the mill and then return to little tunnel back the riverbed to continue downstream once everything was an operation the or made its way from the tough nut and lucky cuss minds in tombstone on wagons pulled by sixteen mule teams once the order was run through the stamp mill and smelled it. The resulting Bouillon was loaded into wagons drawn by four horses..

"Even though it has been less than a week since the last one tonight there will be yet again. Another Democratic presidential debates this time in Charleston South Carolina and hosted by CBS News and the Congressional Black Caucus Institute in partnership with twitter. Seven of the candidates will be on Stage Sanders Biden Warren Buddha judge klobuchar Bloomberg and steer because the criteria has changed in recent months. Here's a reminder of how the candidates qualified quoting the hill candidates must reach ten percent in four Poles approved by the DNC or twelve percent in South Carolina specific polls the polls must've been released between February fourth the day after the Iowa caucuses and February twenty fourth and quotes so that is how dire has recently qualified and how Bloomberg is able to be there despite not being on the ballot as for what to watch for tonight. As I've said today anticipate candidates piling on Bernie Sanders quoting the Associated Press with mounting fear among the democratic establishment that these self-described democratic socialist is on the verge of gaining a significant lead in the delegates needed to secure the nomination. Several candidates are resorting to a last ditch effort to stop him the day before. Tuesday night's debate in Charleston. They previewed their lines of attack in a series of digital television advertisements Pete. Buddha jr the former mayor of South Bend Indiana highlighted Sanders. Call for a government financed healthcare system as an example of his quote polarization former vice president. Joe Biden accused Sanders of trying to undermine President Barack Obama's two thousand twelve reelection and former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg assailed sanders is record on gun control continuing from the Associated Press One candidate who didn't take sanders on directly Monday. Senator Elizabeth Warren though she shares many of Sanders is liberal policies in could benefit if he were to stumble. She's been reluctant to tangle with him. Throughout the campaign she was Bloomberg's fiercest critic during last week's debate and his signaled she may continue to target the former New York mayor Tuesday night and quotes for his part. Sanders is still adjusting to his position as front runner quoting the Associated Press again after spending decades as an outside agitator accustomed to attacking the party establishment. He's suddenly the one on defense. His handling of the pressure could be crucial in determining whether he stays at the top of the democratic pack and quote. He's not the only one with something to prove Tuesday however the Associated Press says after a stumbling debate debut last week Bloomberg is seeking an opportunity to regain his footing Biden. Meanwhile is looking to make a big impression in a state where he was long. Viewed as the unquestioned front runner because of his support from black voters end quote. If you're interested in how all of this is playing for voters in South Carolina Five. Thirty eight is doing a before. And after the debate poll asking likely primary voters who they're considering voting for how favourably they feel about the candidates and which ones they think can beat president trump right now Bernie. Sanders is in the lead on all three questions. With Joe Biden. In second across the board one interesting takeaway is that despite all of his ad spends according to this poll. Bloomberg is the only candidate that is more disliked then see all of the before results of that. Poll at the five thirty eight link in the show notes. And we'll check back in on it tomorrow after the debates which once again is on tonight at eight PM Eastern on CBS. And that is the election roundup for the day.
