"Do something we're putting money in our own business, but just taking a little bit of a step just starting right away as soon as possible is the best thing to do when it comes long-term thinking. So starting early re figuring your minds think. All right. Let's start. Let's start. With this now to saving is a huge thing that saving the Mike and and try to make a habitual saving amount is huge. So when you're doing those things, that's where they're going to be able to set your mindset into lots of things you just have to let it automatically flow. Let yourself get into that habitual mindset and then it really close from there. And I think one of the things that I was trying to explain even. So my family's a lot on. We just put it in a savings account and I'd been doing that. Well, it was like these high yield savings accounts and the last couple of years they started just like the percentage starts going down right now I think that they're down to one percent I had a chase bank account before and not to knock chased US point one, zero, one percent like interest acute growing and I. Think like one thing that I've been exciting. I'm not a financial expert. That's why you're here I think about it I'm like wait a second Mike we're telling these banks to hold on to our money and aren't they just making money off of investing it I mean that's one thing to start realizing. It's just wait how are these big companies making their money and like why aren't we as direct as possible trying to get those profits especially now that it's more accessible for people and that is one. Thing that I think is pretty cool. That's a two point. So when I talk to people like I've actually I don't even know the route of my clients obviously rolled things over from other places but some of the people have been like people that had thousands hundreds whatever thousands of cash just sitting in a bank account and just were scared of investing. They were just like scared off and I did not. I couldn't understand at first we sat down and had conversation without but yeah, there is A. Fear for some people of the market in which we wanted to spell showing that we're doing its smart. If you're doing a long term, you're one hundred percent going to be five you do diversification long term. So I WANNA to help people that are maybe a little bit worried people get clicks is big headline. So you always GonNa, hear XYZ the next thing of this is going to happen this happen. It's always a put fear in people's mind that's how what's drives, clicks and ads ad sales so. I wanted to spell. So if you're someone that's that's worried about that, you definitely want to work something that could help you walk out talks on a whole bunch of different decks that walked through what's going on the market, and you have a whole podcast that people can listen to a definitely you're when you're alive podcast does talk about different things. This is such an interesting time where I think social media and like people like you that have a platform that are like teaching people things it's GonNa be Superintendent. WE'RE GONNA learn we should be able to learn a lot more now like everyone else tells me is your people are just following their communities that they really connect..

Why Mitch McConnell is unstoppable
"The reality is in the Senate right now, it takes just simple majority to advance any presidential nominee Paul Kane is the senior congressional correspondent for the post whether it is to some random commission overseeing the Great Lakes or the Supreme Court of the United States of America, and that has left the minority party with very few options. The reality is that there's not a whole they can do. and. What are some of these theories that we have heard of that Democrats could do or that people think the Democrats could do right now oh, there's this thought of if you impeached someone anyone bill bar or in the trump again and sent to that resolution across the capital that it would instantly stop all other action and forced them to hold an impeachment trial. You know I got an email from a reader asking about they could just deny unanimous consent blocking unanimous consent is something that blocks the action from taking place and basically would make the voting process go much more slowly. Yeah. But there are provisions. Already in line for how to deal with those things, you file something called a cloture motion. That's the that's the way you blocked a filibuster defeat filibuster and yes, it'll take three days to overcome that process but think of it this way if there really were away for this minority party to block this Supreme Court nominee then Mitch McConnell would have thought of it in the eight years that he served as minority leader and was considered the obstructionist in chief. He was considered the greatest structure in the history of the Senate blocking Brock Obama at every possible way if there were ways for digital block Supreme Court. Nominations of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan from the minority position McConnell would have done it but he couldn't do it, and then I've heard these ideas that potentially if Democrats were to win control of the Senate in November, and if there were to be a Democratic president that there's this idea, you could pack the court afterward, you could just change the number of justices that there are on the Supreme Court and increase them. So you could have two more. Democrat appointed justices or you could have four more. Well, that is a the that is something that can legitimately be done in the legislative process. There was no. Foundation in the constitution that set the number of surpreme. Court justices at nine. It started with six justices the chief and five associate justices an grew over the years and you know to be sure you know the considered the greatest Democratic president of all Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried in the nineteen thirties to pack the court and very infamous way and eventually was shot down and the reality is if Democrats were to go through the couple year process of adding justices to spring court that would immediately be met in return with Republicans. Next time they have the power and you know we just would go back and forth by. In twenty years, we might have twenty one justices and also probably need support from actual democratic leadership, and this seems like something that Congressional leadership isn't that interested in something that Joe Biden has said that he straight up doesn't think should happen Yeah Biden had got a little bit cagey the other night when he was asked about it in a local interview I think it was in Wisconsin and he basically said that he didn't want to answer the question because of the answers the question. Then that's GonNa change the. Discussion and what Democrats are trying to do right now is to avoid these. These are processed fights. I know that there is a bigger bigger goal at hand here in terms of overall policy and how that policy is reviewed at the supreme. Court. But most of the public tunes this stuff out because they, they hear things about over Republicans are being hypocrites and well like eighty nine percent or more of the public says, yeah, they're all hypocrites no big deal and they really want to try and focus this fight politically. On, what the impact of trading in Ruth? Bader GINSBURG. The most iconic liberal justice of the last twenty five years for a very staunch conservative jurist like amy, Coney Barrett like that is the biggest ideological jump that the court would have seen since thurgood Marshall was replaced by Clarence Thomas They WanNa make this fight politically not about these seemingly random efforts to put more justices on the Supreme Court and they want this fight to be about the impact on the affordable care act on voting rights on clean air clean.

"California closed during the boycott as Black Panthers picketed outside and also offered to drive customers to another store that wasn't selling boycotted grapes and then drive them home in afterward. This was all part of ongoing mutual support between the Black Panthers and the United farm workers so bad, ass. Much. I'll say this is like kind of these are organizations that like to an outside observer. You wouldn't necessarily think would be working together because the united farm workers all talking about non violent direct action and the Black Panther Party's philosophy included self-defense with violence if necessary and like Cesar Chavez. was like, yes sometimes nonviolence include standing up for somebody else which I thought was. Great thing to say and it also like we had rural farm workers and a much more urban organisation. They were not necessarily people you would immediately think of as a working together without knowing about it a meanwhile, the union was organizing on a national level, for example, delores Horta. Traveled to New York and convinced the central Labor Council, the Meat Cutters Union, and the Seafarers Union to Essentially Blockade California's great shipment in the spring of Nineteen, sixty eight. She also organized a secondary boycott of the A and P grocery store chain in Boston activists staged Boston Grape party. It's we just love throwing some stuff into the harbor. Wham in had been a huge part of the grape strike from the beginning in addition to the leadership of people like Dolores Huerta a lot of the grape workers were married and especially during the harvest, the entire family would be working in the fields, including wives and children. So women marched and organized during the boycott. They were also really instrumental in rallying the support of middle class women who were doing their families grocery shopping all over the country on February fifteenth. Nineteen sixty eight Cesar Chavez started penitent fast also described as a hunger-strike. It went on for twenty five days with a Catholic mass held nearby every day. Robert F. Kennedy who was at the time a senator from New York and part of the Senate Labor Committee made multiple trips Delano during the strike and was present with Chavez, when he ended his fast, the following June Kennedy was assassinated during a celebration at the Ambassador Hotel after winning the California and South Dakota Presidential Primaries Bo Cesar Chavez, and Dolores. Huerta had attended the celebration in October of nineteen sixty. Eight Safeway stores. Successfully sued to limit the number of picketers who could be outside of their businesses. So the Union changed tactics instead of picketing the stores in groups, they would send individual people nicely dressed to talk to the shoppers one at a time..

"An organization called citizens for facts from Delano was formed to publish all kinds of articles, pamphlets, and other materials all aimed at trying to discredit Chavez and the steak California law. I made it pretty clear that you could not be an employer and arrange a union like that did not count as Labor Organization. So. That competing union approved by the growers did not last. Very Long. On, March Seventeenth Nineteen, sixty, six about six months into the strike about seventy five farmworkers started on eight two, hundred, Fifty Mile March from Delano to the California capital. Of Sacramento this was compared to both the Selma to Montgomery, March and to a religious pilgrimage Caesar. Chavez's approach to all of this to all of his work was really heavily influenced by his Catholic faith. So during this March, a banner was carried the head of the march that had a picture of the version of Guadeloupe as well as the NF W. A. Logo. And when the March arrived in Sacramento after twenty five days, there were about ten thousand people gathered there in support of the strike. Later, that summer the Western Conference of teamsters which had previously refused to cross the farmworkers picket line instead started working against them colluding with growers to put together sweetheart contracts. The farm workers unions had to scramble to keep their membership intact and to hold union elections to try to keep the. teamsters from undermining what they were doing. This was one reason why the national farmworkers association and the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee merged in August of nineteen sixty six forming the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee, which later became the united farm workers if you're not familiar with the term sweetheart contract, that's basically when the employer colludes with the Union to put together contract terms that are really favorable to the employer rather than to the workers. which is sort of opposite. When it's supposed to do. As, all of this was happening organizers were also arranging boycotts of California table grapes. Talk about that after a sponsor break.

"Because it really sounds like, yeah. We don't actually have files on any of these people and the House UNAMERICAN activities. Committee doesn't have files in any of these people. None of these people have hit our radar before but probably they're communist so we should open investigation. There are many many pages of FBI files on Cesar Chavez at their site where all the foia documents are posted. Anyway moving on although the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee had been chartered by the AFL CIO and the national farmworkers association didn't have those kinds of ties. The NF W as membership was a lot bigger than the AWS's. They were also just a lot more Mexican than Filipino farmworkers in this part of California. So Chavez and the NF W. A. became a lot. More prominent and visible at the strike as the strike progressed it was almost like it just sort of tacitly moved over to being more associated with him and their accounts of the strike today that barely mentioned it Leon or the Filipino workers or the other Filipino organizers who were central to this strike including Philip Vera Cruz who had helped establish the ABC neither. Of the NF W. A. nor the AWAC had the funding to support a prolonged strike. But support came in from other organizations. Members of the clergy encouraged their congregations to participate in the strike and to donate to striking workers. Pete seeger held a benefit concert religious and community organizations held fundraisers and organized food drives to help provide the hundreds and hundreds of. Pounds of food that the striking workers needed every week, the student nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and the Congress of racial equality donated two way radios. So the unions could organize their picketing. They wanted to pick it where the replacement workers were working this meant somebody that had to drive out in the morning and scout the fields really early looking for things like stacks of. Or forms truck, which were clues that somebody was going to be they're picking that day and then they would have to radio in for a team of picketers to come out the AFL CIO contributed five thousand dollars per month other unions, including the teamsters and the Longshoreman's and warehouse men's Union agreed to support the strike as well. Refusing to pack and ship the produce that strikebreaking workers were picking growers resisted this strike aggressively, they brought in replacement workers from other parts of California, and Texas, and they also illegally brought in workers from. Mexico. However, a lot of the growers also docked these workers pay significantly to cover transportation from where they had been living as well as housing and food. So a lot of them felt like they were being cheated and wound up joining the strike growers also threatened the striking workers they sprayed them with fertilizer and pesticides. Growers also turned off the utilities at the work camps and they raised the rent there by almost half which led Chavez to call for a rent strike. Many growers were using Labor contractors to make work arrangements. These are basically go betweens who. Were focused on filling the growers. Labor. Needs as cheaply as possible and in a technique that has been part of several strikes we've covered on the show before some of the contractors tried to form their own competing union, which was approved by the growers..

Some people are calling this big tex big tobacco moment, which is a callback to the nineteen ninety s when seven. CEOS of Big Tobacco companies all had to appear before Congress, and be accused of doing bad things to the public but is this fair in this case? Are these companies really doing bad things because of their size are they really too big and are you the consumer losing out because they've become big or are you actually benefiting because of the size of these firms? So we think in these questions, we have the makings of debate and that's what. We're going to do, but we're going to do it a little bit differently from our normal approach.

The principles of equality and freedom. Central Job of democracy and government. is to. INSERVICE of those goals, protecting citizens from any group or any person wielding too much power from abuses of excessive private power from private governor Mench basically arising out of the corporate form Anti monopoly antitrust is a deep and powerful American tradition was at the heart of the American revolution. Think about the tea party protests the great anti monopolist of our country include ebd boys who saw. How monopoly power was used to crush lack political power after the civil war and Franklin Delano Roosevelt who is arguably the greatest trust buster this country's ever seen and nineteen forty to nine eighty. We lead the world anti monopoly using antitrust campaign finance laws, public utility regulation, labor laws, and other tools to ensure that no private company had too much power but since nineteen eighty, when Reagan, tour down. Anti monopoly laws and their spirits. Democrats, and Republicans alike have failed and instead embraced a policy of radical concentration and the result is the world we live in now.

Bakari Sellers talks about the death of George Floyd
"Are really looking forward to the next gas considering all the things that have transpired especially up in Minneapolis. Our next guest. We just played a clip from CNN. This morning is Bakari sellers. Who grew up in the State of South Carolina? His father a noted civil rights pioneer. He's been very close to the South Carolina Program Practicing Law for many many years and continuing to to this day in Colombia. And as we say hello to Macari I want to ask him about Certainly the news of the day but we also want to mention for just a second to his brand new book that came out the other day my vanishing country Cari sellers. Thank you very very much for joining us. It's great to have you on the program. Man I I love your show Thankful for this platform and thank you for having me today on. What is a a truly tough day for most of us in this great country? I WanNa talk about that but I just wanted hug for a second. About what compelled you and really push you to writing this book. I mean you're still very young man usually Mars for old decrepit people like me but still on your your early thirties. I'm really interested in how you got to this point. Yeah so you know I. I wanted to write a political book and I'll be honest which Paul that no one wanted to buy it. And so when I sat down and talked about my story coming from the Orangeburg massacre in February eighth to sixty eight where my father was shot. subsequently imprison all the officers. Who fired shots into? The group of students were charged and found guilty. Three young men died in Smith. Samuel eminent Delano Middleton My father was shot and imprisoned. I chronicled that all the way through my rise to being young black elected official in the country. All the way through Charleston South Carolina. Where I lost my good friend Clemente. I'm in the Charleston massacre and so I just highlight the ups and downs and the trauma that comes along with being a person of color and what I the reason I wrote. This book is so that we could All have some sense of understanding so we begin to have conversations about healing this country And you know your book comes out during a pandemic and it also comes out around the death of Ahmad. Aubrey the desktop Brianna Taylor. Now we had this death in Minneapolis. And so I think it's an evergreen book and You know it's a discussion. It's difficult but necessary to have the car. It's it's so easy for all of us to talk about. No one should act this way but I wanNA get deeper because in watching what you did this morning and really knowing you quite well and hearing you speak out on so many other issues. I really want you to get to the heart of the matter here. this is bigger than than an isolated incident in. Minneapolis or Georgia or somewhere else. Is it not it is and you know. It's it's not just myself but you see you see all these athletes you see Lebron James of the world you see. I'm all the list of NBA players goes far and wide and even young college athletes are taking span. Because Y- for me personally it's about what do I tell my black children in this country and I know a lot of your listeners are like here we go again a. Why are we going down this path? But it's the fact that I have to have conversations with children that others do not and you know the crime that was Allegedly committed was forgery of a twenty dollar bill. He didn't even know that there's evidence to say he didn't even know that the twenty dollar bill was fake But regardless the penalty should not be a death penalty crime and so now I have a fifteen year. Old Daughter should be fifteen on June first. Who is about to Get her permit. You wouldn't do. I tell her. What do I teach her? I'm raising twins that are seventeen months old and one is a boy stokely. What do I tell him in? So that pain and this is not new You know it goes back to Emmett. Till and mega rivers Jimmy Jackson in the Orangeburg massacre the massacre on the campus of Jesse Jackson State in Kent State all the way through The recent incidents that we've had and so the question is when will it stop and I you know. I think that we have to begin to have difficult conversations in this country and some people don't want to have but I'm pressing forward to make to let people know that there is a real pain in this country and and there's painful by a lot of people today particularly black people in this country and we have to hear that pain. He wrote the other day. Being Black in America is almost perpetual state of grieving. I I know I know you well enough to understand but I want you to explain to to those out there and your political commentator. You're you're you know what I'm referring to. How do you explain that to the rest of us? You know. I I say that before you turn me off turn me down I say? Why don't you turn me up and let's have a conversation? Where is listening and understand and I come from a place where my father was literally shot a law enforcement and I had the utmost respect for law enforcement officers. My that was literally shot. My father was taken away from my family because he was actually arrested. For that night I father became the first and only one man riot in the history of this country. He was charged tried and convicted of rioting because he was a member of the Civil Rights Organization. They denied bond and they housed them on death row. My mother had to carry my sister my oldest sister their oldest child. She carried and gave birth while my father was in prison. And so when you talk about that trauma that emerged from my father went through the burden of being a black man in the south with felony. You carry all of that. And I'd had a great deal of success in my life and my job is to make sure that others are able to get access to those blessings as well and then I lived through the Charleston massacre. Paul like my good friend. Clemente painting he was was murdered in Bible. Study You know he let somebody come into his church. He set them beside him and he was shot in the net. And so when you think about all of these things and you think about the fact that I'm now living for them and there's no one there's absolutely no one in their right mind. They can lie to you. They can call in today until you that amount all day deserve today. Brianna Taylor. She was an emt worker. They served been no knock warrant. Went in and shot her and they can't tell you. The George Minneapolis deserved I either. And so that is what I'm saying. We have to begin to understand the reasons why and before you turn the conversations like this down. Let's turn them up. And let's have an honest conversation about how we move forward to broaden this because you of all people know it's twenty twenty. The political season never ends and a lot of people bacar just already made up their mind not so much the election but about everything this conversation. We're having the pandemic and I want you to try to take us there because I preach on this program. I don't want to talk about politics. But you can't get away from politics and especially at a time like this one hundred thousand people who died Do through the growing virus The overwhelming majority of these individuals especially in these large cities. The data points are are people of Color. I mean we have to talk about that This season is upon us. And you know regardless I want people to exercise their right to vote their right to vote safely You know you politics part of everything we do in life and you know I ask.

Supreme Court Eyes The President's Power To Say 'You're Fired!'
"At the Supreme Court today the trump administration is trying to make it easier for the president to replace the heads of the country's independent regulatory agencies. The administration is asking the court to restrict or reverse a decision that dates back more than eighty years. Npr legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg reports in two thousand eight the. Us economy was on the brink of financial disaster. A rising number of homeowners quite simply can't pay their mortgages for closures have hit a record high. The National Association of Realtors reported the worst month dropping existing home sales since they started keeping track in the late nineties. Further meltdown in the mortgage market had investors. Heading for the exits in two thousand nine. Congress sought to reestablish oversight and regulation of the financial system among the remedies enacted was a law that consolidated powers from across seven agencies into one call the consumer financial protection bureau. It was placed in the offices that the Federal Reserve and funded by the Fed. The new agency was charged with preventing a repeat of two thousand eight financial crisis. Richard Cordray was its first director for the baby. Had two roles one was to try to prevent an economic collapse of that kind ever happening again. And that was done largely to putting in place rules that safeguarded the mortgage market and ferreted out. A lot of the irresponsible and ultimately failed lending that had occurred once in place. The bureau moved aggressively to protect consumers from bad actors in banking and other financial services also in the CFP BE SITES. Were Bill Collectors. Telemarketers and others accused of misleading practices among these was the Salem Law Firm in Los Angeles investigated for charging consumers illegal. Upfront fees for debt relief services the CFP as part of its investigation demanded certain documents from the law firm. The firm refused contending that the structure of the agency is unconstitutional. Because it's director cannot be fired by the president at will instead the bureau's director like the heads of other independent federal agencies can only be fired for cause meaning malfeasance inefficiency or neglect of duty lawyer? Andy Pinkus who represents the Chamber of Commerce explains the theory of our government is that the popularly elected president will appoint officials and remove them. They're not doing what he wants. So if you take away the president's power to remove someone Then you're drastically limiting the political accountability of that individual that view however lost in the lower courts and the sale affirm appealed to the Supreme Court backed by the trump administration central today. Argument is a case dating back to nineteen thirty five. When President Franklin Delano Roosevelt tried to fire one of five commissioners on the Federal Trade Commission over his policy views. The Supreme Court ruled unanimously. That Congress created the FTC to perform quays judicial quasar legislative functions and that the president could not therefore dismiss its members the way he could members of his own administration the sale firm and the trump administration will argue that. The CFPB is different because the bureau's power was placed in the hands of a single director instead of a multi member commission again lawyer. Andy Pinkus multi member agencies the way they're structured our system have to have people from different parties. The president picks the chairman who has a lot of control about how it operates. The terms are staggered. So most presidents will have an opportunity to appoint a number of those people because the trump administration is not defending the CFP structure. The Supreme Court appointed lawyer Paul Clement to argue on behalf of the Bureau Clement notes that there are other single-member directors the government who cannot be fired by the president will among them the control of the currency and the director of the Social Security Administration. The constitution says nothing about the president's power to remove officers confirmed by the Senate pointing to that fact Clement notes. There are literally dozens of independent agencies. That control everything from monetary policy to the stock market to public health and Safety Clement says that the consequences of invalidating the CFP structure could be dire. The issue in this case is like the thread on the sweater. That if you start tugging on it and you tug on it hard enough. Potentially the whole sweater comes undone and the sweater here really is is the entirety of the whole alphabet soup of agencies that all have these four 'cause protections these agencies. He notes are often central to our economy. The Federal Reserve is a great sort of example of why Congress imposes these kinds of restrictions. Because there are certain issues in the world that we deal with the national level where it's nice to have a degree of installation for a discharging a particular duty where it's not GonNa Change with whoever's the president the trump administration however is willing to roll the dice in this case. It argues that if a single director agency cannot be distinguished from a multi member agency the court should reverse. The case decided eighty five years ago. That would throw into doubt not just the CFP B but independent agencies that comprise roughly a third of the government and not just those agencies but also potentially the rules that those agencies have laid down over the years

So sometimes when we talk about big historical events they feel so distant unrelatable but the Delano grape strike. What happened as a result of it was a really big deal today? There's plenty of union organizing happening industries like auto in media but this was a first for farm workers and remember these were poor people with not a lot of resources in the Filipino. Farm workers were already in their fifties and sixties. Many didn't have families. They needed the money and access to proper healthcare just to survive.

"For the first time Filipinos and Mexicans worked together. According to journey for Justice Filipino Hall Becomes Their Union Hall and Strike Kitchen. Were they meet and share meals before heading out to the picket lines? They agree to a non violent movement peacefully picketing vineyards and fields encouraging other workers to join in one Filipino. Worker Paolo Yani dies from a heart attack on the picket line. Still the growers refused to give in when you think of the idea of a union perform workers. But I think it's ridiculous you think that without a union the farmworkers can improve their condition and CREPE. It has been done right here quite a bit. Is this camp evidence of that? This campus greatly improved in the last year. Would you have been hit? You WanNa live here. You know you're being very impudent what I want to live here this is. I called impudent question. We wrote account. I won't ask answering your questions. What starts as a strike turns into a national boycott of Delano grapes and a farm worker labor movement. That goes from weeks to months to years the Filipino a walk in the Mexican and F W A join together to form the united farm workers or the US W Cesar Chavez becomes director. Larry IT Leon Assistant Director who leads a national boycott of grapes traveling with volunteers around the country to convince people to boycott Delano grapes. Until the growers meet their demands. Millions of Americans Boycott Grapes and donate money food and clothing to the united farm workers. It's not just about simple pay raise anymore. It's about basic workers rights including the right to form a union then the history this country. There's never been any collective bargaining agreements between farm workers and farmers Cesar Chavez emerges as the face of this now movement but it is not impossible to have a union that is possible. He leads a march from Delano to the state capital in Sacramento and holds a historic twenty-five fast which brings more press and attention even a visit from Robert. F Kennedy. I think that what we need is federal legislation which will be comparable with the legislation that we passed in the nineteen thirties for other workers in this country. We think the fact is that we haven't done that. The result has been that the farmworkers have suffered than the grown much more slowly economically than any other segment of our society is terribly unfair and very unreasonable and very very unjust in one thousand nine hundred seventy after five long years. The United Farm workers are finally recognized as a union. The grape growers agreed assigned union contract with a pay increase health insurance another significant changes in the farm labor system.

Just want to say to the people as a matter of and the nations of the world that we are not about turnaround. We own the move. Now yes we on the move and Norway racism the Bannon and in California farmworkers faced with racial discrimination and economic hardship organizing for their rights as workers. And as okay so quick recap on the history of farm workers on the West Coast and specifically California. Immigrants had been exploited as cheap farm labor for years. I Chinese Japanese migrants then Filipino. Nationals arrived in the nineteen twenties. Mexicans became a large part of the farm labor force around time but also just poor folks of all backgrounds looking for work. Black White Brown were exploited. They lived in shabby wooden houses near the fields. They worked for hours under the Sun. Some even lived in former concentration camps which house Japanese Americans during their internment in World War. Two since they first started coming over in the nineteen twenties Filipino. Farmworkers had tried negotiating for better working conditions and wages with their bosses. Usually white guys called growers beheld. Strikes started organizations and unions. They were often met with violence. Or they'd lose their jobs. Gore's were higher other ethnic groups. Instead scabs to their strikes like the immigrants who came before them Filipinos were thought of as hard workers who were obedient easy to control but they were also militant having lived through years of race. Riots shootouts violent. Confrontations with police growers SCABS. It wasn't uncommon for Filipinos to draw knives on the picket line. Larry it Leon came up in this old school. Militant tradition of striking labor organizing and by the nineteen sixties. He was a leader of a union that represented farmworkers call the Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee. A Walk which was supported by a larger union the AFL CIO. Larry worked the likes of Mexican American activists. Dolores Huerta and Filipino. American organizers Philip Aracruz. Who called Larry the most powerful Filipino leader in a walk? He had the most experience. I mean he'd been in a lot of strikes you know and he was the head of a walk at the time this. Miriam Powell a journalist and historian who spent almost a decade writing books and articles about another famous Labor leader Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers which we'll get to in a bit in terms of the nuts and bolts like being a Labor leader running a union. Larry was the guy absolutely. That's where story picks back up as a union organizer and leader one of Larry's jobs is to visit farms in the Central Valley to recruit. New members moves his family to Delano. Where he the mostly Filipino. Workers in May nineteen sixty five opportunity knocks in nearby. Coachella valley where there are also Filipino. Workers who need help. Here's Patrick again. As older Larry. Here's some workers did a dollar forty in our Filipinos are getting a dollar twenty five an hour. Now that don't make sense to me. It's time to strike okay so to strike meant. The workers would stop working until their employers. The growers listen to the demands but striking farmworkers wasn't going to be easy they were going against big agricultural business agribusiness. The man agribusiness was the most powerful industry in California at that time. Million Powell again arm workers were really the poorest people who also had no protection all of this sort of existing health safety and labor laws that applied to other professions. Do not apply to farm workers could be fired at will. They be made to work any kinds of hours or no restrictions no health or safety requirements so for them to take on this enormously powerful industry a was a huge talent when the farmworkers decide to go on strike in the Coachella Valley. They don't go to the fields to work. Instead we pick it in demand for better wages. They held up signs march. Saying chant confront the growers. They don't get paid and some workers are even arrested. But in ten days the growers give in the workers get their fifteen cent raise. Let's pick these grapes. After the harvest Larry in the farmer workers head north to the next job the grape fields of Delano. Where they hope to get the same rates but the growers refused to give the farmworkers meeting a community. Space might remember called Filipino Hall. Let's do this. Delano has a thriving Filipino community with lots of farm workers and members of eight walk so they actually establish a Filipino Hall. And at this meeting it is packed. It's mostly Filipinos but there are also some members who aren't the Black Puerto Rican Mexican even white their backgrounds different. But they all have one thing in common. You've suffered enough under the growers and they want real change now. Really neither raised by public actress on this anymore. We are getting any younger. We need better wages and union today. Dude these courses suck breezing my us of here. Larry and the other union leaders here the farm workers but understandably they have concerns if we strike. You might lose your house. You might lose your car. Your family might be on the streets. Hungary. It's going to be tough. Are you sure you want this farm? Workers decide to vote on whether or not they should go on strike back. My name is John Arlington born and raised here in Delano in present day Filipino Hall. I talked to John Arlington. Whose Father Mariano Lila Farmington also known as Bob was a Filipino immigrant and Delano farmworker. He was in Filipino Hall. That Fateful Day my dad and our family were part of a long agriculture workers organizing committee and with Larry. And Leon Philip the Veracruz People Osco and so many others were here in this hall. I'm talking to you now. In September seventh nineteen sixty five where we had a day long second meeting about the strike. And when Larry asked if anyone could make a motion regarding strike my father stood and made the motion to begin the great strike that started in Delano. Bob's made the motion to go on. Strike those in favor of the strike. Stand up and raise your hands high. Okay so what the heck everyone standing up. We're going on a strike you crazy. Bill Pinos Next Day September eighth nineteen sixty five the farmworkers show up at the grape vineyards ready for work according to the documentary Delano Manos by Marissa. Arroyo just like any other day at work. The farmer workers started picking Ripe Grapes on the vines. Then they'd set them down on the ground they move onto the next Bein. Fake Red Grapes. Set them down. Here's a clip from the film with organizer United Farmworkers Vice President.

Larry Itliong and the Great Delano Grape Strike
"When I moved to America I was a sophomore and one of the first classes I took in high school was US history. My teacher was weird. We had what he called open book tests so we didn't really have to study and he played movies during those tests. One time I think it was pirates of the Caribbean. This teaching style was so different than what I was used to back home. But that wasn't what struck me the most. It's that when we got to the part of American history set in the Philippines there was just one paragraph in our history book less than half a page dedicated to this period of American imperialism. I think that paragraph mentioned Emilio Aguinaldo who became the first president of the Philippines and the acquisition of the Philippines by the US from Spain in eighteen ninety eight. Let's it nothing in those pages talked about the bloody Philippine American war. There was no mention of the American occupation that took place for almost half a century in definitely didn't talk about Filipinos who came to America during this time not as immigrants but as nationals subjects of American empire the generation of monotones who are promised with the riches of the American dream. But who face the harsh realities of American life instead? I mean when we think about the history of the United States we say oh Boston. The Boston Tea Party. We all learn. It is White America. That's Gail Roma Santa. A writer and publisher who is the CO author of journey for Justice? A new book the chairs the story of a Filipino American labor organizer and Community Leader Left. Outta most American history textbooks the tough-talking man with a moustache glasses and sometimes cigar. Larry Leon. He was an is a Filipino. American leader who united Filipino Americans and other ethnicities Gayle Co wrote for justice with her friend. The late professor and historian Don Shula. Noma Balan- you might remember her from episodes one and two of this podcast. They both grew up in Stockton California and they didn't learn about their cities rich Filipino history until they went away to college. It's why they wrote the book. This book needs to be in schools and in libraries in the hands of our families and our caregivers so that they can say oh. I was part of American history. Obviously I didn't learn about Larry Leong in high school. I don't think I even heard about him in college. And I took Asian American studies yet. Too many Larry. It long is a Filipino. American civil rights hero a leader in that first generation of Filipinos in America and even in the diaspora he led the Delano grape strike. And people don't really know what that means and that really is a point where we had so many Filipinos and their jobs were jeopardy and they had so much to lose. Nobody had health insurance major resources. They didn't have any political clout. They were migrant farm workers on this episode chapter in American history. We should learn about in school. The story of Larry Leon and the great Delano grape strike pivotal moment in the American farm worker movement. Most people have heard that Mexican American labor leaders Cesar Chavez and Dolores.

A Strange Legacy for Two Presidents
"For two presidents. In nineteen thirty-three a group of Americans wealthiest businessmen powerbrokers including the grandfather of George W Bush Prescott Bush plan to stage a coup against then president Franklin Roosevelt to change the regime one year later a retired Marine Corps. Major General smedley Butler revealed the plot but wait Prescott Sheldon Sheldon. Bush was an American banker. Politician Wall Street executive partner of the Brown brothers and a US senator. He was the father president. George H W Bush and the grandfather President George W Bush. He attended Yale and was a member of the skull and bones. Prescott Bush seems larger than life and he was a business blunt. Nineteen thirty three referred to as the White House coup was led in part by Prescott Bush. The purpose of the alleged conspiracy was to replace the Roosevelt Administration with a fascist dictatorship. A coalition of many influential official billionaires powerbrokers led by Prescott Bush. They planned the coup. The reason behind this attempt was the policies of the Roosevelt all administration towards the business world. The owners for some of the biggest corporations like General Motors Goodyear Chase Bank in Heinz thought the government would destroy private enterprise thus they wanted to create a business friendly regime so that they could preserve their power however the coup plan came to alight when Smedley Butler retired Marine Corps major general alerted the authorities in Washington DC of the conspiracy according to his statement. Some mysterious therion bankers and businessmen approached him and asked him to command an army of veterans. WHO fought in World War one in order to stage a coup and overthrow Oh? The Roosevelt Administration Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president at the time. Of course Butler was a popular military. Figure figure that and he also had influence over the veterans. That's why they chose him. Committee investigated the allegations and declared that some Wall Street elites were are involved in a conspiracy but nobody was charged go figure then. There was Prescott's involvement with the Brown brothers the finances of the architect of the Nazism that came about in one thousand nine thirty nine the documents from the national archives. This show that the bushes and Brown brothers shipped voluble. US assets including goal coal steel and US Treasury war bonds to their four clients overseas as hitter geared up for his nineteen thirty nine invasion of Poland. The event that sparked were to his business dealings continued until tell US companies assets were seized in one thousand nine hundred forty two under the trading with the Enemy Act.

Let's begin at the corner of surf and stillwell stillwell avenues in brooklyn's coney island home to nathan's famous a restaurant that started out in nineteen sixteen as a hot dog stand run by polish immigrants nathan and ida hand worker the hotdogs were made from ida's recipe and if they tasted like contemporary nathan's famous miss hotdog they were fine. A nathan's famous hot dog is not the best food you will ever eat or even the best hotdog you'll will ever eat but there's something special about the experience of eating one the brackish smell of the atlantic ocean in your nose the fading in in of the once great coney island in your ears and the hot dogs do have a pedigree they've been eaten by king george the sixth and franklin delano eleanor roosevelt stalin even supposedly eight one at the yalta conference in nineteen forty-five coney island used to be the huckster capital of the world where fast talking barker's wearing straw hats would sell you on this carnival attraction or that one now like all places that survive on nostalgia. It's mostly a memory of itself. The beaches are still packed in summertime. There's still align at nathan's famous and you can instill ride the carousel but they're not selling fun anymore. They're selling reminiscence except one day. A year are coney island becomes. It's old self for better and for worse every year on the u._s.'s independence day of july fourth tens hinz of thousands of people flooded the streets to witness a spectacular exercise in metaphorical resonance known as the nathan's famous hot dog eating contest like the most widely observed annual celebrations of american independence are one fireworks displays which are essentially imitation battles complete with rockets and bombs and to a contest in which people bowl from all over the world attempt to discover how many hotdogs and buns can be ingested by a human within ten minutes to quote the great yakov smirnoff enough. What a country like
Poll: About a third of Americans approve of how Trump handled El Paso and Dayton shootings
"Kerry dan whether it's from history or from fiction. If if you're a student of the presidency you probably have a very good sense of how much the american psyche yearns for leadership in times of stress or national tragedy the day we celebrate that is fictional president thomas a with moore played by bill pullman in the movie independence day but in real life presidents have also all too often been called upon to make stirring speech. Is this not to fight. Aliens butts to bring together a country. That's grieving and confused often at some of the worst moments in the country's history. Remember george w bush with the bullhorn after nine eleven franklin delano roosevelt and the day that will live infamy ronald reagan after the challenger disaster faster and barack obama singing amazing grace after the charleston church shooting those are some of the few times in recent decades that partisanship has really really and truly been set almost entirely aside in our latest n._b._c. news wall street journal poll just thirty six percent of americans said they approve of president donald trump's handling of the shootings in el paso in dayton and that's not much better than he did in the wake of the pittsburgh synagogue shooting and and it's only a tiny bit better than his approval rating after hurricane maria hit puerto rico it is better than his approval rating for his handling of charlottesville arlit still only one in five americans said at the time that they approved of how trump handled the unite the right rally and the ensuing violence in charlottesville worlds fill almost exactly two years ago and here's a reminder. This is not really normal. It's not normal in american history for a president to only have a third third of americans are so approving of their reactions in the wake of a huge national events or tragedy sure i mean bush enjoyed sky-high. Hi hi approval ratings after nine eleven and almost eighty four percent of americans supported bill clinton's response to the oklahoma city bombing but also even after after hurricane katrina which is one of the most devastating parts of george w bush's presidency and one that made him particularly polarizing even after that advent still half of americans said they approved of his reaction to the hurricane at the time so trump is unusual in how americans have reacted to his response to national tragedies and when you take those numbers and you combined them with everything else that we know about public views of the president you get a very muddy muddy picture like wild majority disapproves of his handling of things like charlottesville trump is still enjoying some of the highest approval of his presidency when it comes the economy which is great news for the president but you might ask what is the most powerful thing when it comes to the two thousand twenty election what trump means jeans for americans wallets or something more holistic. That is the million dollar question but here's one clue from the data that our pollsters crunch that we noticed this weekend there are a total of nine percent of registered voters in this poll who say they like trump on the economy but they disapprove of overall for all and when those people were asked if they support trump for reelection or would rather vote for a democrat in twenty twenty three quarters said they would prefer for a democrat which is probably not great. If you're the current resident of the white house now for the record we did not aw test the favorability or any other kind of measures of president thomas a whitmore played by bill pullman independence day but i would love of deceased some head to head data with him versus the fictional presidents played by harrison ford and air force one and morgan freeman in deep impact those those would be some interesting cross tabs. That's a lead for us. If you'd like to hear more this free audio briefing you can always download us on your favorite podcast app <music>.
