"Of the book. It is available on Amazon as we speak I find this subject fascinating also. Happy to report that bill is not just a spokesman that he actually knows the subject because I literally was just. All over the road quizzing him about. All these things that I vaguely know and he has a various students are for all of them so. Thanks for not just being the name on the book, but actually being intimately familiar with the subject matter. That we were talking about Davy Crockett Daniel Boone talk about the two characters. So I have in my possession in my history collection, the deed when Daniel Boone's sold his Kentucky home and acreage because he was fed up with too many people coming into the bluegrass state and wanted to move to Missouri where nobody was so Daniels's feisty. Guy. had been on the periphery of helping the new United States government move into Kentucky had fought the British on in during the war of eighteen twelve was a scout as many like folks Daniel didn't like people like. Corolla. had. But it was a coon skin at and he got it was a scout. All right. But he had money because he rented his services out to business people who wanted to explore. The Midwest so he moved to. Missouri. Doesn't work out for him there and he comes back. Not a real consequential guy in US history other than the name and the legend. Davy Crockett's diff I have a letter from Davy. Crockett he was a congressman. From Tennessee only serve one term because he couldn't stand Washington and sit in the office. Davey was. Outdoors Guy Rock, this Guy Indian fighter from the jump. Good shot. Didn't really like invention outy got married abandoned his wife and kids kind of floated all over the place. Did worked for Andrew Jackson for a little while. But he found his way out to Texas because David was restless restless guy he wanted to act. Let me go out to Texas. She was going on out there unfortunately Davey wound up in the Alamo. And that was the end of Davy Okay but. He was much more of a presence in history a man he was an explorer. He was an Indian fighter then he fought the Mexican army. The Alamo and you know very flamboyant guy that left more much bigger trail pardon upon then Daniel Boone. I believe I'M GONNA ask my producer. Chris. You can look it up. Didn't. Zakar are Abrahams of airplane fame, Naked Gun, and all that wasn't one of them. A big Daniel Boone. Memorabilia collector I don't know bill if you know that story but Zakar Abrahams, guys who obviously done all those naked gun, an airplane movies and police squad sort of beyond all those comedies. I think it's I. think it suck I said Sucker Abrams. One of them has a large collection of Daniel Boone. Davy Crockett Damian crime. Damn it. A huge day they're able. Is Not, a lot of Davy Crockett stuff around. I have a letter written by. then. Congressman Crockett. With a of misspellings guerrilla. Say A lot of misspellings. Well. You know frontier cursive. We'll give them a break. Then have spellcheck on their quills. Sure so I can't even spell check on twitter I'm screwed. So I, we're these is what would they've been? They've been your rowdy friends from high school that drank a little too much. Would they've been? You know sort of the quiet God who kept to himself who didn't want neighbors like I'm trying to Think of who these guys would be today. If they can survive because both. Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett were. People who didn't like civilization very much. They didn't want to settle down they didn't want to conform. They didn't want to have a job or be a farmer they wanted adventure. So, maybe a CIA or one of those things, but they were explorers and they just want to get out there and see what was over the next mountain. That's who they were weren't gun fighters. They weren't Lookin' they weren't aggressively violent. They just wanted action and. It, worked out okay for him but Crockett was killed lane he was thirty four when he died. At the Alamo. Right. And How did they befriend the Indians? How did they have these? Relationships where they could travel through their territories. Boone was such a skilled woodsmen that the Indians in. Kentucky and Ohio respected him. because. He was the first guy out there. And he was eccentric guy who lived like the Indians. Lived in the same. We haunt. because. We go to sleep, get up and. Do it again. Yeah, they built a cabin but the Indians and Daniel Boone had a lot in common Crockett was more of a guy was very charismatic. On they loved them. He was a macho man Andrew Jackson's friend good shot good with a knife. The guy walks in a bar and everybody wants to buy him a drink right? That was Davey. Boom was much more solitary. Worries me, and I'm sure it works. You too is well the sort of version of history that we're trying to teach all the kids these days which I feel like is sort of poisoning them in the in the modern time through sort of taking these people and turning them into very negative cartoon characters, and there's so much to glean from from the history good and bad. Do you worry about what is being taught and how it's being taught in the in the school sixteen nineteen project and and things of that nature sort of black lives matter. Manifest stone that sort of stuff. Well I do worry about it because parents are becoming increasingly derelict in their responsibility to make sure their children know about their country. So history. They can't teach. About Native Americans crawl, you can't do that and they'd. You wear a Washington redskins cap like I said. And you're canceled. Street teacher no we're not going to get into this native Americans. We're GONNA go right from the revolutionary war to the civil war to Chatty Rosa. No in between because I might say something wrong. And then a little Zeke is going to go home and Heather and That's about the data back and then all of a sudden the teachers up against on charges in front of the school board, you're a racist. that. So it's not taught. And therefore, we get an army of younger Americans who know absolutely nothing about because you remember a segment I did on on the factor called waters world more Jesse waters out to ask me even the basics and nobody knew anything. That's where we are a country. It was like a historical jaywalking. As. Jay Leno. Stole it for Leno. To be clear as we did it way back and people's all Yoda us to dump people know we did it. And time. We didn't add it. This is a we talk through. This is what they said didn't select the dump all right and when you have a population. That doesn't know anything..

"Presidential race in our lifetimes, because if Joe Biden and the Democratic Party does not win the White House In 2020 on November 3rd, then American democracy, democracy around the World America as we know it, the America that He and lived in and that I live in and we're different different ends of the Democratic spectrum. Excuse me that America will dis up here. We're always like shocked in a gas 3 3.5 years into the Trump administration by what he does what he says, and then what he does. Imagine a re elected President Trump and what he would do and would be able to do With a second term. And then you know the reason why Colin Powell and these Republicans, who we now seen over the last two nights have been asked to speak. It is not to appeal to two Democrats. It is to appeal to those Republicans of conscience who may have voted for Donald Trump for other reasons, but who are embarrassed. By the man they put into the White House with their vote and to give them an opportunity and to say through Colin Powell through John Kasich through Cindy McCain. That Joe Biden. Is the person who is going to save the country from this man. Let's take another call. I think Charles in Manhattan wants to comment on Docs appearance last night. Chauzy on WN. I see with Jonathan Capehart from the Washington Post high there. Thank you so much, Brian. I just wanted to say that the Congress when that spoke last night from the books Other people just in general are very smart. And I could learn a few things. But anytime you in your speech with Another candidate like Bernie Sanders, you seldom occurred. You know, they want to hear Joe Biden and it's just something like something being forced down your throat. And that's basically all I wanted to say that that thank you very much. I get your point. And, you know, Jonathan, I was watching the sea part while talking on the phone. With a friend watching the convention at their place. This is this is what you do in the age of physical distancing right? You don't get together to watch the convention. You let's let's talk on the phone together while watching the conventions in our convention in our own places, But when AOC had ended her speech, and I knew because of what I do for a living that she was there to help put Bernie's name into nomination, But when she ended her speech by saying, that's why I'm second, then Amit seconding the nomination of Bernie Sanders. My friend was like What is she there as a voice of dissent against Joe Biden like this caller, Wass. How do you think that came off? It was a little bit jarring, but again like you. I know the reason why why she was there to second Bernie Sanders nomination. But what I also I saw it as Laying down a marker. By saying, you know, right now. I'm behind. We're behind the Biden Harris ticket. Can. Bernie was our guy and he stood for all these things. And I'm here to second his nomination. But I'm here as a part of this convention for buying and Harris. To support that ticket. But If flash when there is a Biden Harris administration, I will be right here with Senator Sanders. To not only hold the Biden Harris administration accountable for fixing a lot of the problems but to also be there to push a Biden Harris administration. On policy on policy on in a variety of areas, and actually, that is a good thing because we're going to need as much As a country as much energy and ideas to solve the problems the myriad problems that this country has that have gone ignored because of the current administration's I like insular focus. From the president down and I saw that Congressman Crockett has clarified why that came out the way it did in an instagram story last night, the same thing we've been clarifying here, but I guess she felt the need to say Here's the context, folks on Instagram. And she's got like six million instagram followers. Ah, lot of people would have seen that and her followers probably already want her to hold the Biden administrations, feet to the fire in the way you were just describing, assuming Biden gets elected. You know, Jonathan not to do a buzzkill for Democrats feeling all warm and fuzzy after last night, But remember, this is a competition between the two parties. Nothing goes unanswered, and so Here is a 32nd taste of what will probably hear long form from the Republicans next week as former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee reacted to last night's DNC presentations. In the 11 P.m. hour on Fox. If America was electing somebody to be nice, they would elect Jill Biden. She would be the better Biden to be on the ballot. But that's not what this is about. This is about very serious policies that determine the future of our country. So if you like the idea of open borders, bigger taxes, more state ism. Government control of your lives. Abortion funded by the tax payers. If you like us, surrendering to China, at every turns of the multinational corporations will be happy and keep putting back sheesh in the hands of politicians, then the Democrats or your choice. That's what you should do. Mike Huckabee on Fox last night with kind of a Republican response. Obviously, we'll be hearing Democratic responses to the Republican Convention next week, but Jonathan Capehart game this out for us a little bit. What's the compare and contrast? Messages. You think people will be coming away with after the full two weeks of this? Well, I'm glad you played a former governor Huckabee and what he said, because that he sort of articulated what I said at the beginning of of of our conversation. That everything he said. He said they're you know, politically, I can understand. A lot of it is rooted in, you know, um, conservative. Ideology, but it's all rooted in fear. And loathing. Andi. I think if that is sort of a taste of what we're going to see next week, then after four days Fear and loathing. I'm not sure in America that has been cooped up inside since since March or late February, depending on when your particular city or state decided to lock down. In a country that is worried. About the future, both in terms of the pandemic, but the economy and just society The American people are scared..
