Well the system of slavery actually could require a great deal of interaction between enslave. Her and enslaved. This means that to some extent co define social practices in drawing. Stark legalize didn't actually make sense in the south until after the slavery ending thirteenth amendment now reconstruction held these floodgates back initially but by the eighteen eighties southern democrats those redeemers as they call themselves. Have the power. They soon begin to pass. Jim crow laws at the state level. One of these laws as we know from today's open is the louisiana separate car active eighteen ninety which requires railroads in the state to have separate cars for white and black passengers so then democrats are thrilled as evidenced by the time democrat newspaper reporting in favor of it quote. A young lady of the city had two or three days ago to travel from new orleans to austin texas. The only sleeping accommodation on board that was to be had was the lower birth in a section of which the upper birth had been secured by negras. The city and accommodation was as much crowded as that for sleeping and the young lady had to occupy seat in the section in which she passed the night with the same negras the instance which we have just narrated without comment goes to show that the date for the louisiana separate car act. Going into force will not arrive a day too soon. Close quote if i may provide one word of comment damn well civil rights loving americans do not see what the times democrats sees.

Sounds like they'd get along with homer plassey.

"On with us yesterday talking draft director of the East West Shrine Bowl. Yep. Director of Player Personnel or whatever the title is. He told us that yesterday. Yeah, he was actually he was in the XFL. I don't know if you remember when he was with Optimum scout. And then when the XFL came into being Hey, might have been President Lee. I forget whatever. He had some big title with the XFL and you know that went under. So now? Yeah. You sweat shrine. So cool. Yeah, we like Eric, that that isn't on demand. Audio. Yeah, If you want to, like, Listen, toe eight million different people Talk about the draft. Check out on demand Audio A W g r 5 50 dot com. I see you've tweeted that Jacob deGrom pitches tonight at 6 40 encouraged people to watch. Yes, because you know what it is. I'm granted. I'm biased, but I'm taking this strictly from the standpoint of watching any player. You know, this would be you telling me if you're Hey, Have you been watching Golden State play basketball. Steph Curry is fantastic. This is that equivalent. I'm telling you to watch someone who was so Incredibly good at what he does, and this is not watching Mike trout and waiting every two or three innings from to come to the plate. This guy is so good right now at what he does, I swear I'm like, okay, Metz. Score really fast. Get the heck back out on the field cause I want to see the Graham again. Watch the ground pitch. He's just Master of his trade right now, he is unbelievable. On. As I said, I treated of course, with this kind of build up, he'll get shelled tonight by the Red Sox. Now he's really It's amazing to watch. Really. I was gonna ask what time should I tune in for the Mets to blow the safe? See 6 40 Game nine. I'm gonna say around 9 15 9 30, Okay, And And Of course, it'll be one Nothing because they don't score for him. They will give the lead to the bullpen and then the book, But I can't even make fun of the bullpen. What's his face has been pitching well, I don't want to say his name. Um, there was one of those you're gonna swear? Um, possibly and I'm not sure of the dump button is working today and I don't want to get find It Looks like it's working. That see, Jeremy doesn't see Jeremy needs. No, no. Jeremy needs a dump button installed at home as a precautionary measure. In case you don't catch me swearing, Brayton. No, watch him. It's it is it's awesome. And I you know, Jeremy, As I said, I'm biased, but You know, you know, I have always talked about the greatest picture that I've ever seen. I mean, you know on a regular basis, was watching Seaver growing up as a met fan watching Seaver, the only other guy for my franchise in 50. Years of watching that comes into this discussion is good. Being able to watch him throw every fifth day. It was electric. It was just, you know, again, as I say, you want to pitcher pitch, you might not be. You know, I don't know. Maybe you're all about home runs and scoring all that when a guy pitches With the location with the precision with the ability 7th and 8th innings, he still hitting 100 on the radar and blowing fastballs by guys. He's got 50 strikeouts this season and three walks. And Izzy Arias 0.31. Phase two in one uh, that's why I said it. It's just a basketball player occupy. Don't care of the sport. Lewis Hamilton driving a race car, tiger and name a sport, I think is a sportsman. We can all appreciate someone who was at such a high level. To watch them do what they do is special. That's where the Graham is in for the third year in a row right now. All right. So that's my little piece on that. So all you gotta do is your tune any watching pitch? And then when the Mets come up, you go watch something else. You wait a few minutes and then you come back. I mean, that's the way you just watch him all night long. Got to mock draft sort of things I want to ask you about one of them was from Chris Simms. You see Chris Simms? Mom? Well, I I only saw I saw what he did it 32 Okay, We're who we picked up. 32. Right. 30 Justin Fields? Yes, Yes. Because people were tweeting it, Alec. If Justin Fields gets to 32, Jeremy's gonna eat a flip flop. You know they were doing that stuff on Twitter. Yes, I actually thought about that. I almost when I saw Christians mock draft that has the bills taking Gregory Russo edge rusher Miami 30. Marcelo is. Jack also picked that for the ESPN mock draft. It's a position the bills could identify. He has had it. Let's talk about him really quickly, and then I want to get to, um The other thing about this. If this happens, I will, you know, shave or something? I don't know. Offer to do something, but you shave anyway. Well, no. Okay, go ahead. You know, I mean, like, I'll shave your head. All shaven and 18 Hundreds President, Handlebar mustache. Kind of very nice. So we're talking like Chester Arthur. Maybe I don't know if you've got to remember if he had a handlebar. Gregory was always a huge 67 £260 defensive end. Who is It's funny the term he's boom or bust right is being used for him. You'll hear that every once in a while. You see, the may be in comparison because he's a one hit wonder being even didn't have this size, That's for sure. And it's athleticism. You know, he's Right, so the deal is, in a nutshell. Incredibly skilled player. But Had one really productive year in Miami two years ago, and I think at the time, Jeremy if he went into the draft, they would have projected him is one of the top picks in the draft. Like really. You know up in the top five. I don't if you would've been like the number one discussion, but people were talking him up as one of the better players. If he entered the draft, he didn't and then what? He opted out, I think last year, but it also has a concussion History from his time at U C L A. And I think that is the big issue that concussions one year body of work. Yeah, hops out last year. Great skill set but dot dot dot Is how much of a risk is involved here, right? So you'll hear that name and Hey, Boomer bossed if you're picking 30th He seemed like a good spot to take Boomer boss right. It's not going to cripple you mean you don't want to miss on a draft pick, but it's not like picking at 30 is going to screw you over is a franchise on a team that has no obvious major holes to fill. Anyway. I think that if you're in a position the bills Aaron booms should be what you're aiming for. You know, we we asked We talked about this with Brandon being about higher ceiling versus higher floor. What do you like there, And I'm sure you know, with each position each player might be different, but he talked about Sometimes you could draft a player, you know? Well, okay. Maybe in a year, he'll be solid versus drafting a player that can show up right away. Maybe Electric, um I mean, I'd be in favor of taking a swing Our conversation the first hour about you know. How are you going to beat the Chiefs? How are you gonna improve this team? It really feels like the only way to improve the team is to get booms. You the middle of the road linebacker. Isn't gonna make this team you gotta pass over Tremaine Edmonds or Matt Milano. I was just checking the snap counts by the way from the NFC championship game. AJ Cline played 11% of the snaps. Based defense is for a lot of teams is nickel now, so I can't. I can't see where they're taking a linebacker that would make the lineup on a regular basis not against teams that are going to pass the ball the way the good teams do. So all right, Remove linebacker cornerback. Okay, I've got a guy that can maybe go in for cornerback number two or slot corner. Defensive end 50% of the snaps. I would like Boom boom bust, and it doesn't work out. All right, You've got the same team you had. How are you going to get better by getting a little bit lucky, I think getting a little bit lucky. Yeah, I'm just I want to make sure I may have confused. I'm not sure I got this right. It may have confused Russo and Phillips. Phillips is the concussion. Phillips is a concussion. Right? So I'm sorry. Let me correct that cause I thought I was looking back at that, and I sound tweeted something about his mock draft, and he's struggling with injury issues with Farley and Russo. Russo was the guy was that you still I had concussions. They told him to retire from football. He stepped back. He went to Miami and Eddie, and they opted out last season. And Phillips is the one with the concussion history maybe three and two. Phillips had to use is the U C L A guy Okay, but I think honestly, I do think they're going to take an edge rusher 30. I do. I think they're going to figure out they're going to want to address.

"The senior senator from Vermont. Patrick Leahy is going to be the impartial judge. The whole concept is to see whether or not we can find enough evidence to remove this man from office who has Well, he's been removed from office. He's not in office anymore. The whole thing is is is absurd. And you know, there's I feel well, No. Because the secretary of war in 18 60, the suddenly everybody's talking about it is that they ever heard of this guy before. Oh, obviously, you know you're talking about Secretary of War was in the secretary of war anymore. Back in 18 60 something and they impeached him. This is a question that I think this is the reason John Roberts is not there because I think John Roberts doesn't believe his constitutional hypothetically. Just think of this if you can impeach somebody who's already left office. What's the time frame? Can we impeach Bush? Come if we find some stuff, can we? Can we impeach and and go to trial? What about what if we find out something we don't like about? I don't know. Jimmy Carter. He only had one term. Or did Chester Arthur? Whatever His name is one of those guys. I mean, you need to get rid of him. It's ridiculous because the whole concept is what we know. It's not real. He's not gonna leave. But history has to know. So my question is, Is there a time frame here? Can we impeach and have a trial for a president who's been dead for 50 years? Eric? That's ridiculous. Well, this is the way the law goes. It's based on precedent. What I want to know is if we can if we can have a trial and impeachment trial for a president, Remember, an impeachment trial exists for one thing, and one thing only. Decide whether or not we're going to remove this president. This person from office. They're not in office. So if you can impeach and have a trial to see if you can remove somebody from office, it was already been removed from office. It is not ridiculous to ask the question. For how long? Oh, it's just common sense, Eric. It would obviously just be the last president. I don't Is it common sense Is that how the law works? Is that how constitutional law works? I thought it was based on precedent. Things that have happened before now. And if you can, If it's constitutional to have an impeachment trial to remove from office, somebody who has already been removed from office. It is not ridiculous or absurd to ask the next question. For how long? Can you go back to presidents, Five Presidents, 10 presidents. The reason you go on these journeys intellectually is because quite often, if you if you play things out in your mind, and you ride them, and you find out that it quickly becomes absurd. It might be a red flag that what you're engaging in in this moment. Is actually absurd, and that's why it's worth doing. The answer is obviously if you can impeach a president if you could have a try align impeachment trial to remove a president who's already been removed. The answer to the question is obvious. Yes. You could impeach and put on trial any president from any more time in history. You know, there's a story out there. San Francisco Always, you know, famously liberal. They're changing like 44. School names to get rid of, You know the crimes of the past. Jefferson's on there in Washington's on there, and I could make arguments like these air. Also founders So you probably wouldn't have your freedom of speech without these characters, but they were slave owners. So that's a different discussion that removing Lincoln He didn't do enough. Lincoln is one of the names is being removed from the elementary schools. What I would say is, if your standard Says that Lincoln wasn't good enough. But as you look at this horrible past the United States of America, you toss Lincoln and with everybody else. Lincoln's not good enough for you. Means so if we could go back and say that we've decided in our modern eyes, Lincoln didn't do enough and he wasn't good enough. We're gonna remove his name and were in the habit of holding impeachment trial impeachments and impeachment trials for Residents who aren't in power. Well, why don't we go back? If you want to know if the feeling gets hot enough that it's more important to society that Washington and Jefferson owned slaves than everything they did to found the nation? Well, why couldn't we go impeaching them and put them on trial? Oh, Eric, that's ridiculous. No, you're not thinking. You're not in the habit of thinking things through to their logical ends. It's a worthwhile habit to get into because if you get to the logical end, and the logical end proves itself to be absurd. That's your red flag. That what you're engaged in it This moment could Vouches. Favorite word could be absurd. He could write good. A doctor Fauci. Do you think maybe Martians could land and have a some sort of covert 19 cure? They could. They could also land with a completely different strain of covert, which would mean we need to move. Where about 28,000 masks each Pull down your pants. We have a new swab for you. I love that one That's really gonna make the Trump received. Haven't heard the word. See that quite some time. So, of course it's absurd. I'm sorry and again, I have to say, I think that what the president did revving that crowd up and pointing them to the Capitol building. Woz In my mind unimpeachable a fence. But it wasn't necessary because the American people had already kicked him out of office. Now, when it happened we had When we have 12 days or 14 days we had to deal with that's right after it happened. And if he was supposed to be in there another two months or six months or year. I would be saying there should be impeachment.

"Have added those four words, but it's it's really not clear that that really happened because no one at the time said that George Washington added the words So help me God. In fact, the first time any of one every suggested that Washington did so wasn't until 18 54 65 years later. When the writer Washington Irving claimed that George Washington had done so in 17 89, but Irving had been only six years old in 17 89 when he attended the ceremony. It was very far away from the inaugural platform, and there were no loud speakers of any kind, so it's a myth that it was added. We do know that Chester Arthur added the words so help me God in 18 81. But the record is largely silent for most of the 19th century, and we even know that it's a zoo recently is 1929. Herbert Hoover did not. Have the words so help me God at the end of the oath, but in fact, beginning with Franklin D. Roosevelt 1933. Every president has said, so. Help me God.

S. Lewis who's a late the he's a lady out there he was in a theology in those things he was a Christian thinker and CS Lewis was very good and he wrote the following of all the tyrannies a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims maybe the most impressive of all it may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies at least the robber barons cruelty maze that may sometimes sleep because at home you may think what the hell I have the power to do what I'm gonna do it and that he may be more likely to go we haven't yet at the same time likely to make a hell on earth this very kindest things with intolerable insult to be shored against one's will and short of states or conditions which we may not regard as a disease at all this report on the level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will to be classed as an adult with infants and imbeciles and domestic animals that's what C. S. Lewis said in god in the dark he made the point that Tierney for the good of its victims is the most impressive of all so what when I listen to Gavin Newsom this morning it was on one of the Sunday morning talk shows he was talking about after all even though we have few deaths in the state of California looking at my list tonight it is eight out of one hundred thousand and of the eight three year in nursing homes that means in the general population it's five out of a hundred thousand if you fill up the Los Angeles Coliseum there's gonna be five individuals three of whom were those five have pre existing conditions are gonna die pope at nineteen in other words it is not a problem and so what given news and wants to do like anybody share once they don't Kentucky or what Cuomo does in New York is say look you guys like you James arson you don't know what's good for you you don't know how to conduct your affairs therefore I'm going to engage in charity for the good of its victims and therefore I know better than you how does he get away with that in California well it's a very big I mean we see these governors across the country and blue states primarily are basically doing things that their own state constitutions do not allow because even the emergency powers have limited scope in time any new Serbian obviously it's a one size fits all policy is her company and by the way C. S. Lewis you wrote a paper and see who he is the greatest Christian apologist of all time and it took a tremendous fantasy writers well but he's thinking is just so beautiful a literary apologetics I love it so much and I'm familiar with that quote and it's so true it's similar to what Reagan used to say about the most dangerous thing in the world is someone from the government wants to help you out yeah it's but it's like this I mean maybe for listeners to understand is collect everything we do involves risks sure one of the great riches driving the people that die are far more people die from accidents auto accidents didn't die from COPD nineteen so if we want to prevent auto accidents what we should do is tell people not to drive for three months or six months and then auto accidents will go down but the problem with that is we lose our freedom and our ability to travel in southern California we drive to the bathroom so we can't even move if we can't arrive so with that it is you know taking away liberty and masks to protect people and that's your point it is by it definition your radical it is it is our most aggressive and they do it whenever I want the call was this morning doing one of his news conferences again and and so far New York about thirty thousand new Yorkers have died five or six thousand directly because Cuomo put their release to older folks from hospitals back into nursing homes whenever covert nineteen positive and he wouldn't let the nursing home operator bar them from occurring and five thousand died including the in law the older analog and so by Janice Janice Janice dean the weather machine on fox news and the five five or six thousand people directly died you need a quote to this morning to the effect of well that's what all people do is die I mean I read yeah they were going to die anyway you're gonna die want to sell it let's hurry it up a little bit if you look at it and this was based on locking down you know the states in the US was based on these computer simulations proved to be totally inaccurate within weeks and then they said well we have to reduce the strain on the medical infrastructure in the hospitals the US hospitals are not and it turns out they were never in danger of collapse even in New York then everywhere they were strained but boasted Enzo and somehow they came up with this idea even social business so you know one of the things that's interesting I mentioned bring fifteens we go back to the Hong Kong flu that killed a million people worldwide killed one hundred thousand people in the United States it was in nineteen sixty eight in nineteen sixty nine and right in there it was ward stock where there were five hundred thousand people not to be doing the opposite of social distancing they were all you know involved in they weren't they didn't have clothes they were hugging each other in a brace each other and you know we didn't hear anything in the press at that point we can go back and search now there was really nothing to what I just knew I had a heart New York times had a story about it that there were tens of thousands of dying it was a medical issue started sixty eight continue through nineteen sixty nine and it made the point that we didn't have cable television and im ka I'm confident the reason we have what we have done a politically is every news room there's three or four channels up there a fox news CNBC CNN MSNBC and that drives the entire conversation I was in I was in college in sixty eight sixty nine seventy went to law school and seventy one that was going on it was a medical issue and today's terms that would mean two hundred thousand Americans would die of the Hong Kong flu we had fifty four to nineteen fifty six was the Asian flu course under years ago we had almost two million Americans die in today's numbers from that and it was never weaponized politically until now why is that and I think what we get we have to I think most Americans are waking up to this no matter what we say the origin of this virus what's in the weather no matter what the thinking was even though we know the models were wrong they scared the president's task force the dead simple about two million people dialing dying we now know that the curve is been slacking the things they've peaked at our hospital beds are available for the medical infrastructure the PPA is out there yeah what we see are these all state local politicians so using it they're going to re open but not yet not yet saying they've been going at it in the case of Gavin Newsom for these larger counties in southern California he put in a row of poison control requirements he says there has to be two weeks with zero deaths for two weeks meeting zero Kobe debts well in LA county with the homeless population that is impossible to retrieve he knows that an Orange County and sambar Dino county riverside county have banded together they've written a letter to the governor and they seem to be implicitly threatening some litigation here is the revolutionary spirit the sweeping through the Golden State right now the protests are getting larger and larger there are churches opened their doors in defiance of the governor there are counties go ahead said we're not going to follow the rules riverside county which is a very large county with millions of people in the Inland Empire the sheriff in riverside county said my share of are not now going to enforce the governor's orders anymore and as far as I'm concerned open it up in the restaurants are doing at all practicing common sense because they're all scared by the media commonsense masks social distancing all the same things that are happening at Walmart target or shut down and scores we can see we look at Georgia we look at Sweden we look at Texas Tennessee Florida and Florida Georgia and what did the media say they said Georgia was going to be erupt R. yeah it was gonna be this center of the world it was a monster and we don't we we see the opposite we actually see the number of factions going down the number of deaths going down show me clear results I have been proven wrong by the data now we have data and it does it we have to be honest would we see blue state officials blue blue state local officials all kind of dragging their feet on reopening we have to consider the political motivations and there there there's three of all one is they want mail in voting to cheat right and this is a great keeping the lockdown gold going help strengthen the case for mail in voting as we get closer to November they want to keep Joe Biden locked in the basement and the more we the lockdown.

week colonel with baton Rouge Louisiana an employee at a grocery store was working when a masked man entered early in the morning the robber had a gun and demanded the employees hand over the money or they'd be shot. one employee grabbed the gun and fired as the armed robber tried to jump over the counter where the employee was the employee shot the robber who collapsed on the floor after being struck in the side. to live on the scene to transport the injured man to a hospital where he later died the clerk was not charged by police who considered a case of self defense. thanks Carl this scenario gives us an excellent opportunity to discuss ambush versus counter ambush as an honest law abiding citizen you and I will always be the ones being ambushed and not the other way around because of this will most likely be surprised by the criminal and need a short amount of time to recover our which before acting here are some tips for launching a successful counter ambush after you been surprised by an armed criminal. one feign compliance and seem non threatening for example if you're at the check out counter simply hold up your hands and slowly back away from the threat they're in charge for the moment simply because they have a loaded gun and it's pointed directly at you too if you can get out of the line of sight of the criminal then do it better yet if you can get behind cover that will enhance your chances of survival remember cover will stop a bullet but concealment will only hide you. three former plan to take out the criminal with no loss of innocent life this could simply mean drawing your gun from cover or concealment aiming at the criminal and firing until the threat is stopped no matter what you do make sure your plan is sound and will stand up to reality if you're going to shoot make sure the clerk or other innocent citizens are not in your line of fire if they are changing angle above all else remember that these altercations are extremely saddened and extremely violent this baton Rouge man did a great job defending his life and the lives of his coworkers his quick thinking and brave actions save the lives of everyone in the store and

They even own palm, which basically paved the way for the iphone and they didn't just create all this amazing technology. But they also invented a lot of what became the standard business model for tech startups, they acquired and partnered with overseas companies long before that was a common practice. In fact, their final partnership was a joint venture with Weiwei the Chinese tech powerhouse that's making headlines even today. So in, in a lotta ways, they became a role model for the fast growing startups. Like facebook. And Google that dominate the tech world today. You might even call three come the first unicorn of Silicon Valley growing from an idea. Sketched on a napkin to becoming a captain of industry, practically overnight.

"Four because Lincoln fully expects to lose that election and back, then the president and choose the running mate. But Lincoln thought the election was important enough that he was involved in a secret intrigue. Swap out Hannibal Hamlin for Andrew Johnson because he needed a war democrat from a border state and Johnson, the only southern Senator stay loyal to the union with enormously popular in the north, and he was reviled in in the south, and we were supposed to get Abraham Lincoln's vision for reconstruction, but when the bullet of John Wilkes booth gun ends up depriving us of that opportunity. We end up with a man who was born a racist died a racist last president to own slaves. Didn't emancipate own slaves until seven months after the patient proclamation. We end up with him having a blank piece of paper to design reconstruction from scratch and Andrew Johnson. The worst view of anybody's president in history. He's completely neabry aided while taking the oath of office. It's supposed to last thirty seconds. It. Turns into a seventeen minute rant against the political aristocracy. He calls out every member of the cabinet. He can't remember the name of the secretary of the navy. He then proceeds to Slava all over the bible, and then he's too drunk swear. And the new senators so he asks a very young Senate clock to do it instead of him what socking about that up Assode of courses that Johnson would do that and start off on such a foot. But to me it also speaks to Abraham Lincoln's forgiveness incompassion because essentially Andrew Johnson goes on ice for awhile in Lincoln stands up for him in vouches for him and says, Nope, he's okay. We can we can live with this yet. I actually think had Lincoln not vouch for him. There would have been. There was already nothing pressure. Andrew Johnson to resign as vice president and making out and said, no, no man has any right to judge Johnson. That hasn't been through what he's been through in Lincoln, Lincoln admired. The fact that Johnson had stayed loyal to the union. He admired the fact that he's given up essentially a bomb proof seat in the Senate to take on the military governorship. Of of Tennessee, much rested, his life and his family's life. But Johnson ends up as president. When the civil war is over resurrecting almost every element of the confederacy. He delegates the delegates civil rights to the states. He gives amnesty to you know, you know, the entire confederate leadership faster that that that expected and as a result of Andrew Johnson, you get the black codes, which is a precursor to the Jim crow laws come after the election of eighteen seventy six ending reconstruction. And you get the subsequent segregation. Now, the tragedy of all of this is you could have reversed the tide of Andrew Johnson. I it was possible and the one man who could have done it was James Garfield. So in eighteen eighty Garfield wins the Republican nomination without seeking it the delegates thirty four dollars decide they don't want you this grant, they don't want games playing and somebody shouts out Garfield man and momentum builds and he gets on the nation, and he jumps to the front of the convention hall says I protest a man who. Does not seek the nomination cannot be given the nomination and they give it to him. Anyway. So Garfield completely detached from politics and patronage obligations had as two of his primary goals are political objective. Universal suffrage and universal education. And you know, the Jim crow laws had only been around for four years. If anybody could have put some of it back in a box and reverse the tide of segregation, it was James fueled. But a mentally ill office secret named Charles could tell put two bullets in him for months after taking office. It's interesting you've probably looked at it to. But I went back and read the trials of Guitao, and it was to think about the modern trials we've had that have become pop culture events. What guitar was doing in that courtroom was amazing.

My question goes to the opposite of everything that has been printed out going towards political parties, there's a political party in American politics. There's normally an anti approach them into an issue. And there was one political party that not much been written about the Mason. Mason, Nancy Mason movement. What conductor knowledge gave us information on that? And I'm aware from George Washington that was a Mason with a thirty third degree and also Franklin gender, nor Roussel.

But that goes back to the nineteenth century, doesn't it Dr knowledge that was in. There was a party, by the way called. No, nothing's yeah. Yeah. And then they were proud of it. Yeah. Kinda weird. Because they always say secret meetings. When somebody asks what happened at the meeting? They would say, I don't know.

If we follow the constitution as it is today can Ted Cruz reportedly born in Canada, can he could he qualified to be president. Well, if he was born in Canada, the answer would be no. That's interesting. How did he run back in two thousand sixteen? Are you sure he was born in Canada? Yeah. I I don't know exactly where he was born myself. I think is is a little vague on this.

What Is the Mandela Effect?
"Countless humans have watched the Star Wars movies. And most of them will tell you that the bumbling droid named see three PO is gold all over. But did you know that C three PO actually has won silver leg? And what's that immortal line? Darth Vader utters in the movie The Empire Strikes back. It's not Luke. I am your father. He actually says no, I am your father, a both of these are pop culture examples of what's called the Mandela effect which are false memories. Shared among a large population of people a collective miss remembering of sorts, the phrase was coined around two thousand nine by self-described paranormal consultant view on a broom who used it to explain the phenomenon where many people around the world believed that the South African leader Nelson. Mandela died in prison in the nineteen eighties. But he was released in nineteen ninety later served as president of the country and died in two thousand thirteen at the age of ninety five brooms theory is that at all. All times there are multiple realities of each universe. Sometimes called the multi-diverse and that within each universe. There are variations or iterations of objects people end events. So according to this theory memories of these. Incorrect shared moments are not really false. They're just instances where parallel universes crossed paths for an instant the multi theory is also applied to various concepts in physics and Spiderman. A science has other explanations for how the men della effect happens much of it boils down to the fact that human memory is notoriously unreliable in this hour age of digital technologies. We often equate our brains with computer, hard drives. As though our experiences are typed up in filed away in our own organic storage. However, our prefrontal cortex sees where many memories are stored don't work with the same precision as a hard drive. We spoke by Email with Caitlyn a moat a UCLA PHD candidate in neuro science. She says that based on what we know about the brain. We can make inferences about what contributes to the Mandela affect quote memories are organized in the brain. So that similar memories are stored in nearby neurons when a memory is recalled those cells are able to change their connections, which allows for the addition of new information, but because neurons that fire together wire together sometimes false memories can emerge from aronie is connections. Well, we might think of recalling memories as solidifying them in our brains science seems to suggest otherwise recalling a memory often triggers. Other memories in the process, often intertwining various scenarios and people in new ways a sort of reconsolidating of the information in our brains. Human beings are also vulnerable to the concept of confabulation, which is an error or misinterpretation regarding a memory without a conscious attempt to mislead ourselves or others confabulation occurs. When the brain is attempting to fill in the blanks for incomplete memories. A speaker may mix and match similar experiences and information in order to complete a story in their mind complete with details and emotional responses. Certain that the tail is true. This kind of behavior happens more frequently and people coping with neurological issues such as brain damage or Alzheimer's, but healthy individuals confabulation too. Okay. So that might explain how one person misremembered something, but why would lots of people misremembered. Remember the same fax a moat points to twenty sixteen psychology. Studies showing that eighty eight percent of people in an online survey incorrectly. Picked Alexander Hamilton as a US president from a list of possible candidates, Hilton's recognition rate was much higher than that of some actual presidents like Franklin Pierce and Chester. Arthur Hamilton was actually the first secretary of treasury. But since he's associated with many early US presidents and has a hit Broadway show with his name in the title one or many could be forgiven for mistaking him for a former commander in chief. A moat also notes the power of suggestion. She said suggest ability is the tendency to believe what others suggest to be true. This is why lawyers are prohibited from asking witnesses leading questions at suggest a specific answer. These days. There's also the viral power of the internet and its ability to magnify human error suggest ability and gullibility just for example, if one person should Pacific sleep claimed the actor Sinbad start in a nineties movie about a genie called ZIM and could pro- off her plot. Details that strike a chord with other readers? This could generate a false narrative that many people might believe to be true or even claimed her member themselves in actuality, the actor in the nineties movie about genie was Shaquille O'Neal, and the film was called Kazan. Experiments continually demonstrate just how flawed human memory can be in one test about thirty percent of subjects confirmed. They had viewed video footage of United flight ninety three which crashed as part of these timber eleventh terrorist attacks, no such footage exists. Even twenty percent of people with highly superior autobiographical memory that is incredibly accurate memories reported viewing the nonexistent video and outside of the lab examples of the Mandela affect are pretty common are the popular cartoon bears called the baron Steen bears or the baron stain bears. It's the latter. Something that shocks many people who remember reading these books as children and do you remember a famous portrait of England's king? Henry the eighth grasping Turkey leg. The so do a lot of other people, but it never

At the convention does bring the party significant pain. The many politicians have calculated the discarding their own parties toxic. President by internal action is better than waiting for the voters to do it. This dynamic remained absent for the first half century.
