Matt Whitaker Reacts to the Supreme Court's EPA Ruling
"On a case that is not getting frankly as much in is because it takes a little bit more to discuss, but it's pretty plain and simple. The EPA court, I was excited as much about the West Virginia case, is any of the other case believe me, I was excited about the Dobbs case and others. But this EPA case is something you saw firsthand dealing in the administration level that executive branches have believed that they can have more power than Congress gives them to give us your thoughts on that. Well, I think there's always been an unholy alliance between the administrative state, the ABC admin, you know, unelected bureaucrats and the Congress who don't have to make the tough choices of what they're actually going to regulate. And so they've offloaded in very vague statutes. Some of these powers, whether it's to regulate water, regulate air, quality, regulate all these issues, and of course the administrative state has picked up the baton and run as far as they possibly can. This West Virginia case, I think you're right. I think it's a very important case. Probably not the most important because Dobbs, you know, certainly. Was revolutionary in its restoring the balance of power in the constitution between three branches in the states, but ultimately this West Virginia case versus the EPA is puts the administrative Genie back in the bottle. Makes Congress pass specific legislation to address these issues that are determined to be important. And again, a restores power to the people and takes it out of Washington, D.C., and out of these unelected bureaucrats. So

Danielle D'Souza Gill on the Landmark Dobbs Decision Overturning Roe
"Guys, my daughter Danielle d'souza gill is the author of far and away the best book on abortion in recent years. It's called the choice, the abortion divide in America. If you are interested in this issue, this is the book for you. It's a no way obsolete because of the court's decision. In fact, if anything, it lays out the world after row and it's something that you should really check out. Danielle, welcome to the podcast. I see you wearing a message containing cap. What does your cap say? Well, my hat says my pronouns are anti abortion. Because the left is asked us to choose our pronouns. And so if I don't have my usual pronoun, she heard, then it's anti abortion. Good stuff. And by the way, you and you now have a merchandise store where you have all kinds of stuff, not just on the pro life issue, but on a whole bunch of issues, talk a little bit about that. Yeah, it's called Americana by Danielle. You can get my book, which is signed on there. You can also get this hat. You can get tumblrs, you can get other products too, that are just American in general, beyond the pro life stuff, but right now, I feel like the pro life issue is really out there in the forefront. So that is something I'm
Article III Project's Mike Davis on the Transformation of SCOTUS
"With us right now is Mike Davis formerly chief counsel for nominations for the U.S. Senate committee on the judiciary and a law clerk formerly and also helped justice Gorsuch, get on the U.S. Supreme Court, Mike, welcome back to the program. Thank you for having me, Charlie. I always love when you do our interviews, you have that beautiful picture behind you. It's just, it's incredible. So Washington crossing the Delaware if I'm not mistaken. It is, yeah, and I've big, big, big admirer of that painting and what it actually means. So Mike ten years ago, I got my start in politics and I was pro life then as I am now, but I was told by people that roe versus wade would never be overturned. Ten years ago, justice Scalia was lamenting that the court had gone off the rails. What happened in a decade, where we went from a court that was insane and dominated by Sotomayor and Kagan and upheld ObamaCare is merely a tax, even though we know simply that that was an insane decision. We're ten years later, we now have restored constitutional sanity. What do you attribute the success to? I attributed this success to president Donald J Trump and Senate Republicans. President Trump in 2016 won an upset victory against Hillary Clinton in big part because he promised he would appoint constitutionalist Supreme Court Justices and federal judges who would follow the law instead of rewrite the law and what we saw with this Dobbs decision coming out was the culmination of that. It was because president Trump transformed the 5 to four John Roberts court to the 5 to four clarence Thomas court with the appointments of justices, Gorsuch, my former boss, justice Kavanaugh, who I helped lead through the Senate confirmation and then justice Amy Coney Barrett. So it is a fundamental transformation of the federal judiciary back to its constitutionalist origins, what is supposed to be before the liberals hijack the Supreme Court nearly 90 years

Kurt Schlichter and Michael Walsh Discuss America's Supply INSANITY
"You know, Michael Walsh, I was out speaking to some lovely Republican women at the west valley Republican women Federated. And it was very interesting. We were in a country club. And the organizers said, look, it was very interesting. I was having a lot of trouble with the country club, which did a fine job, but they were very insistent that they couldn't give us more seats because I was like sold out and more people wanted to come because I'm amazing. And she wondered why? Because they never had that problem before. Turns out that they weren't being difficult, their suppliers said we can't get more chicken breasts and more salmon. Their suppliers in America said we can't get enough chicken breasts and salmon win the hell since the 1940s where there was rationing. Did someone in America have trouble gay chicken breast fed salmon? Yeah, you know what, we're going to turn into this is a place near dear to your heart is Cuba. We're not going to be we're not going to be able to get parts for our cars. So you're going to see people driving 25 year old junkers down the middle of the street with cannibalized parts because I had to get my car fixed last year. And it took months to get some of these parts. Now, my car is a little bit older, but still, this is a very classic. You don't have empty store shelf for Christmas. That's not America. That's not the America. How come Michael Walsh, I grew up in the 70s and 80s, it never occurred to me that I could walk into a store and not be able to get what I needed, that a woman couldn't get tampons for gosh sakes. I mean, well, baby formula. This is insane. And of course, president Gumby, he's talking about a vaccine plan in Senegal. Okay, I got nothing to get Senegal, but I'd like to be able to get baby form of the tampons.
What Does Dobbs Mean Politically?
"What do you think Dobbs means politically? I think that I'm a strong federalist. So what jobs does as far as a judicial decision is it returns the abortion issue to the states and each state can determine how they want to legislate around abortion. That's what doesn't ban abortion. Now that's, of course, what we're hearing in a lot of the laws of progressives and a lot of Democrat operatives trying to gin up their base. But abortion isn't banned. It just means that it will go to the state and the state will decide how to regulate and legislate around abortion. What does it mean politically? I don't think it's going to mean much politically as far as the 2022 elections and midterms go. This is going to make a big impression now as it has. Ultimately, it will die down when people talking about it. And they are stuck with high gas prices and priced out of the housing market and dealing with a bad economy.
Which Rights Are Mentioned in the Constitution?
"Let's stop for a second. Where do you get a right in the constitution? First of all, remember, rights don't come from the constitution. I'll say it again because there are some people who are unclear on it. Rights do not come from the constitution. Rights are recognized in the constitution. Human beings are endowed with certain freedoms. One, the right to speak freely, the right to worship as you see fit. Those are endowed by our creator. They are recognized those two in the First Amendment. By the constitution, but they don't come from the constitution. If you look through the entire constitution, including all the amendments, you will not find the word abortion. Because it's not there. So it's not expressly recognized in a constitution. Now, constitutions also clear that all rights, which we, as human beings, have are not necessarily in the constitution. Dobbs reiterates that those rights, how do you know those rights exist? Okay. You look at history. Were they recognized throughout history and Samuel Edo goes through and says, look, like four years before roe V wade, 5 years before, abortion was outlawed in at least 40 states or very heavily controlled. At least 40 states.
What Was the Reasoning Behind the Court's Decision?
"Now, there are a number of states that had trigger bills. That is, if roe V wade and Casey, of course, roe V wade was the original case back in like 73. And it laid out almost in a legislative kind of sense, a very strict accidentally not that straight. A framework of when abortion could be allowed, like you would expect in a law. Now, of course, I know what you're thinking. You're saying, wait a minute. I saw schoolhouse rock when I was a kid. Supreme Court's not supposed to make law. That's the job of the legislature. Exactly? And then Casey came back and it kind of changed it because roe roe was not a very well reasoned decision. And I know that because Ruth Bader Ginsburg said so and Lawrence tried before he went completely insane. So I want a lot of commentary. They like the result. They didn't like the reasoning. Because the reasoning wasn't very sensible. Their reasoning was, well, there's a constitutional right to abortion, kind of because, and it boils down to we really think it's a good idea. And that didn't really work. And it had a very detailed kind of almost legislative outline of what you could and could do with abortion. That wasn't workable. In 1992, Casey came down, they kind of changed the test a little. Became an undue burden on way. You can't unduly burden. The right to an abortion. And what Samuel lita said is, wait, you're wrong at the premise. There is no right to abortion in the constitution.
Breaking Down the Supreme Court's Roe Decision
"What does Dobbs not do? Dobbs does not ban abortion. I'm going to say it again. Because if you read social media or listen to the communist networks, I'm sorry, the mainstream networks. And Democrat talking points. The extent they differ and there is no extent to which they differ. You might think that the Supreme Court decreed no more abortions ever. That could not be further from the truth. And you might, if you listen to someone like AOC or big chief Warren, and never listen to AOC or big G four. But if you happen to, you might think that the Supreme Court took unto itself more power. He did the opposite. This is not the jobs is not about the Supreme Court taking power. This is about the Supreme Court giving up power. And that power is to determine. Exactly how abortion will be handled in the United States.
ROE GONE! What's Next?
"Is now in an interesting determination. There are many who feel that roe V wade was one of the worst decided cases in the annals of supreme courts up with plessy and dred Scott and just so many other cases that were wrongly decided by a court. And it is needed to be changed. The Dobbs case makes this premise a very real because the Mississippi case with the exception of a life of mother set this at 15 weeks. It said it below the threshold of what is determined, the courts have used his viability. But then the question became is it an undue burden if you said it at 15 weeks. Now there are many who frankly for the prolonged community are not crazy about 15 weeks. It allows 15 weeks in which states could allow abortions. But if they kept under the rogue concept, I think what is more being pushed here and what Stewart the attorney general from Mississippi is saying is now it is time just to start over. It is time to get the courts out of this decision making process. It is the time to get the courts out of this process. And send it back to the states in which you will then have the discussion of elected officials representing people that they see and know every day to decide is this where we want our state to be. Do we want our state to be a part of allowing abortion? Do we want to be a part of it and how much do we want to allow how far do we want to allow it? And you know, even going back into you want to allow just as Colorado and the District of Columbia and some recently have passed laws that say that abortion is legal up until the before birth. I

Supreme Court Overturns Roe v. Wade
"It does look like the decision is in. Breaking now on the Mike Gallagher show. As expected, the Supreme Court has reversed roe versus wade. Man, what a moment, huh? What a moment. The pro life side has prevailed. In the case of Dobbs versus Jackson and as expected, the Supreme Court has reversed roe V wade. Now, the matter of abortion is kicked back to the states where blue states can decide whether or not to allow abortions, red states can prohibit abortions, immediately a number of states are going to implement bans and prohibitions on abortions. Do you have any idea? How many lives this moment will
Catastrophic Security Failure: Joe DiGenova on the Events of January 6
"Brad raffensperger many others appear in front of the January 6th. I'm going to use a phrase one of my code is used inquisition. It's either a star trader or an inquisition. Give us your take to date in the last few weeks, judge Jennifer in terms of your experience working as U.S. attorney for the district, working as a special counsel for the DoJ as a lawyer to date. Your description of this event. On January 6th, we were in your studio. Yes. When this happened and my immediate response after watching it was this was a catastrophic security failure. And everything to date that has come out of these hearings has confirmed that. It shows that they purposely did not want to be prepared. They had insecure fencing. They had insufficient number of police officers, no National Guard, no U.S. troops, the fencing that exists at the Supreme Court in anticipation of the road case, the Dobbs case is the kind of fencing that should have been up. It wasn't. What they had upward bicycle racks and all sorts of things. They had their civil disturbance, 50% of them were on leave that day.
Supreme Court Set to Rule on Abortion Rights
"Well, you're welcome, Hugh I am live here from the relief factor dot com studios in Texas Ed Morrissey of hot air dot com and happy to fill in for you today. We do have power and we actually have heat. We actually have quite a bit of heat. But we've got all sorts of things here in Texas. And we've got a full show for everybody today. And of course, one of the big issues, we're going to be discussing a whole bunch of different issues. We're going to be talking about energy later in the hour. We're also going to be talking about energy with American petroleum institute, president and CEO. Mike summers, that will come an hour three, but we've got a lot to talk about about gas prices. But first before we go there, I want to talk a little bit about what today is because today is one of the few remaining decision days. At the Supreme Court. And of course, we're waiting on two major rulings. One of course being dobs regarding the Mississippi law on abortion. And the other is the brewing case in New York regarding the right to bear arms in the state of New York and how that applies. Neither one of those decisions have been handed down yet. We are waiting with bated breath on both of these, but of course most people are focused on the Dobbs decision, not just because it's an abortion decision. Not just because it may be the abortion decision where the Supreme Court finally disconnects itself from the abortion debate and hands it back to the legislatures, which is where it should have been all along, of course, but also because of all of the death threats that have been going on all of the protests, which are still going on in front of the homes of Supreme Court Justices, which is, by the way, illegal. It's against the law to do that.
First Liberty CEO Kelly Shackelford Gives an Update on SCOTUS Cases
"But there is no better person. To help us navigate all of the Supreme Court drama than someone who's actually argued in front of the Supreme Court. In fact, I believe has a case in front of the Supreme Court right now. He runs one of the most important organizations in America first liberty and he's with us right now, Kelly shackleford, great American patriot Kelly. Welcome back to the program. Great to be with you. So what is the latest with the Supreme Court? It seems like they're delaying the row ruling. When do you think we'll hear about that? You know, what's been going on has been really different. Charlie, I mean, if people don't realize, they get about 9000 requests a year, 8000 requests, and they took 65 cases this year. And those were all argued starting in October. And just, I guess, two weeks ago. I think we still had like 30 cases out of the 65 that hadn't been handed down. And that was a record. It was like back to 1950 that you had that much of a backlog. So they've been sort of whittling that down some. We're now down to 18 cases left, but all the big cases that controversial cases, the ones that you'd be talking about are still left. Obviously the Dobbs case, the Second Amendment case, you mentioned religious liberty actually we have two cases right now at the Supreme Court. The two religious liberty cases left. One's a school choice case. One's the coach Kennedy are both we're waiting for those. Additionally, there's the remain in Mexico, the border case. So all these really hot button cases, we're down to two weeks and those decisions are down yet. So it's coming to the crunch into the very

"dobbs" Discussed on This American President
"So you know that is another side of nixon The relationship with his family which is often not captured in books about watergate or biographies of nixon So in what ways are we still living in the shadow of of watergate. By thank you can draw a direct line from woodgate to the various scandals of the nixon presidency. I think this obviously vietnam was very divisive. Time in american history and it really divided the country into you know the antiwar movement and The people who now describe themselves or sarah palin describe themselves as real americans real america and You know that dates back. That idea of real america as a political construct dates back to the nixon era. So i see this as a You know there's a direct link there. I mean many of the abuses that took place in the watergate. Era were repeated during the trump period The interference with the justice department for example is is is one example and nixon was appealing to the same kind of portion of the electorate that trump later appeal to So there definitely There's definitely a connection though. I think however in a trump nixon two very different people. Nixon had a much greater sense of american history. And was you know much more serious thinker than trump particularly on foreign policy. So in some ways you know Karl marx wrote once that history repeats itself. The first time has tragedy. The second time is false and I think you know that might be a political nixon and trump in some ways. So you have written the trilogy on the cold war The big turning points. And then now you've written on the turning point of watergate and the role that had an american history. Is there any future projects that you're eyeing turning points that might end up being a new book or a trilogy. Well it's hard to get as close up to a major decision maker as we can get to nixon ident- in it's hard to repeat that So certainly. I'm more interested in historical subjects than Topical ones. Because i think it takes forty or fifty years for all the materials to come out into right. You know what of cool to second draft of history. So i'm You know not interested in writing another book about donald trump that lots of books about being written about donald trump and They're all going to depend on second hand accounts rather than on firsthand accounts because no other president including donald trump is going to tape himself way.

"And when nixon had to Sacrifice haldeman in order to survive himself has his very tearful compensation with haldeman and he starts calling him haldeman who is belly unit his kept it distance up until then even though they're close collaborators he starts calling him my brother And he says i love you and then there's a pause and he says like my brother and i think that's a reference to one of nixon's brothers who died of toback uses When nixon was young man and this act of getting rid of holdman. Who's been with him. All these years is as painful nixon as losing his brothers from tuberculosis while he was young man. So you could use the same way that if you If you go to a shakespeare play you can see the hero suffering immensely on stage. You can also appreciate nixon suffering In this very in this period that's traumatic for the country but is also traumatic for him personally right now. How did nixon's relationship with his family. Play out in all of this. And i've heard that despite nixon's paranoia 's and vindictiveness. He was very much a family. Man what did you learn about that. Yeah i definitely think he was a family man and did the family was close to him. I mean his wife pat pat. Nixon was often portrayed in the press. Plastic pat I think that's a little unfair characterization The family stood by nixon during this period and particularly his younger daughter julie Who their tapes of conversations to nixon julie at the height of watergate and You know. Nixon is yelling at haldeman. Someone else and then suddenly julie gets on the phone trying to cheer her father up trying to pass on you know What she calls nuggets of cheery news and nixon's voice changes automatically from being irrevocable to being loving and caring. Because he's talking to julie so you know that is another side of nixon The relationship with his family which is often not captured in books about watergate. Autobiographies of nixon So in what ways are we still living in the shadow of watergate. By thank you can draw a direct line from woodgate to the various scandals of the nixon presidency. I think this obviously vietnam was a very divisive time in american history and it really divided the country into You know the antiwar movement and The people who now describe themselves. Sarah palin described themselves as americans real america and That dates back. That idea of real america as a political construct dates back to the nixon era. So i see this as a There's a direct link there. I mean many of the abuses that took place in the watergate. Era were repeated during the trump period. The interference with the justice department for example is is is one example and nixon was appealing to the same kind of portion of the electorate that trump later appeal to So they're definitely Is definitely a connection. There i think however in a trump nixon a two very different people. Nixon had a much greater sense of american history and was much more serious thinker than trump particularly on foreign policy. So in some ways you know Karl marx wrote once that history repeats itself. The first time has tragedy. The second time is false and I think you know that might be applicable to nixon and trump in some ways. So you have written the trilogy on the cold war The the big turning points and then now you've written on the turning point of watergate and the role that had an american history..

A president lives his day What's it like being president to understand this from the inside rather from the outside as journalists and historians. They usually compelled to do so. We can follow nixon around the white house day by day minute by minute. Z goes from His secret hideaway. In the executive office building across the street to the oval office and then goes up to the his favourite room in the white house which that which was actually the lincoln sitting room on the second floor of the residence We can follow them around and we can listen to him. You know getting angry with his aides Having loving conversations with his daughters we can appreciate the full complexity of the man and all the contradictions. We can use like being a fly on the wall actually or perhaps a better expression would be a bug in his desk because that's where the bugs were actually planted and knew that is unique because we see the president's as he really is rather than as somebody you rather than through the eyes of somebody else..

"You talk a little bit about nixon's drinking and use of medication. What's the story there. Right a lot has been written about nixon drinking. And i want to put it into perspective Suddenly the late at night. Nixon typically like to unwind and he would do so with a few clauses of wine or whisky That didn't happen every night but did happen quite frequently. He had trouble getting to sleep so he used to take In a sleeping pills and other medications and they would interact with whatever. Alcohol was taking And it didn't take many drinks to get nixon slurring. His words and sounding set of pretty drunk and there are occasions on the tapes When you he clearly is drunk But you i wouldn't say it's a nightly occurrence in the speech. The president was out of control I mean it's on a spectrum. I mean some some days he was in he would abstain completely had a big event coming up and some nights he would just take one or two drinks and then occasionally when at critical moments he suddenly drinks too much. See you get you know the whole range of of Him being out of control and when he was you know out of control the people like kissinger and hold them would know you know just to ignore his orders. Basically postpone implementation of the orders satan. He was never on the point of pressing a nuclear button So nixon famously had a not a great relationship with the media and this was not too long after the kennedy years after president.

"Richard is as much as anything a portrait of a court of the ruler and his coaches. Who of course include henry kissinger chuck colson john dean Spiral near the vice president You know the whole gang of them and they're all different people in they interact with nixon in different ways. How would you characterize his relationship with henry kissinger and what would what was the impact of that relationship on watergate. Well it's interesting because kissing was nixon's national security adviser and they you know were a team but they also rivals because nixon suspected Largely correctly of kissinger playing a double game. of leaking to the press leaking to nixon's enemies and with the goal of making kissing jessica himself. Look more look smarter And being the architect of some of these Some of the big foreign policy initiatives including the opening to china A nixon didn't want kissinger to get all the credit. And when john lewis gave him the credit for some of these foreign policy initiatives. Nixon was furious so that was actually one of nixon's main motivations in installing this tape-recording system that he would be able to show when he came to write his memoirs that He had been the driver of from policy. Initiatives not henry kissinger kissinger for his part was very adept. flat era and psychic fant. He would play on nixon's vanity and tell nixon that he was the greatest president ever and that he this watergate thing would be forgotten in history and nixon would go down in history as a great foreign policy. President nixon liked that he liked to be flooded but at the same time he was in a pretty much aware of the game that kissinger was playing and The some would. I find hilarious moments on the tapes when nixon is running down kissinger and even one moment when the talking about going off to camp david for the weekend and dixon says we'll take kissinger along with us and then a couple of minutes later says no no. Henry's too much of a pain in the us. We won't take it so kissinger was disinvited. But you know that reflects this raw strange relationship between the two of them. That's probably one of the milder things that that's documented as far as nixon talking about somebody. Yeah he was certainly an equal opportunity. insult of people And he you know uses a lot of swear words and He typically refers to the media for example a sons of bitches bitches bastards son of a bitches you know just a typical right expression for nixon right now. You alluded to vice president. Spiro agnew People remember him as the first vice president to resign. What was their relationship like. And there was talk of agnew becoming president potentially with the watergate scandal so that play out for nixon well. Nixon often talked about agnew his best insurance policy against assassination and later against resignation because he calculated that wants people figured out that if they got rid of nixon they would get agnew That would Restrain them and so you know they sometimes He sometimes talks about his resignation. And then he his own resignation and then he says to one of his aides. You won't act you and the aide says of course we don't want to agnew and so that is always the reason for nixon himself to stay on. Now agnew himself was facing his own troubles during this period..

"And if you want a drink draw the connection further on. I can see that link to the kind of people who support Donald trump. so you're saying that it was personal with nixon all the way from the start. He identified with that silent majority even before his political career. It sounds like i think it began as personal. Of course then it became political because he saw it as a way of making his political career. And you know he from very his first. Political campaign was An anti he flung anti communist epithets that his democratic opponent. So he you know. It was very savvy in using that and exploiting those political ideological divisions we were in the middle of the cold war that period To make a successful political career so nixon wins reelection nineteen seventy to one of the greatest landslides. History forty nine out of fifty states yearbook focuses on the first one hundred days after his second inauguration. So what's so pivotal about that time. Well i think that. I chose that period. Because you know although the subtitle the book is nixon and watergate. The real story is the unraveling of the american presidency or of one american president and the way in which you know in a very short space of time a politician can go from being top of the weld reelected by one of the largest if not the largest popular vote margin in american history to struggling for his political life and that happened to nixon in those first hundred days after his second inaugural site begin with the night of his second inaugural actually will the night preceding his second inaugural and i go all the way through to the end of april nineteen seventy-three when he's forced to part company with his two closest aides. John alec men and bob haldeman Which is something as painful to him as the loss of his two brothers from tuberculosis while he was still a young man. I mean it was a personal crisis for nixon. And this is really a you know. Psychodrama a personal and political psychodrama. The nixon went through. But i actually then take the story up until july nineteen seventy-three which follows those early congressional hearings and most important the revelation of his secret taping system and his decision not to destroy the tapes. He could have destroyed the tapes. I think when he took the decision not to destroy the tapes although he didn't realizing realize it he was sealing his fate as president because when those tapes became public then It was discovered that he had himself ordered the cover up woodgate and he was forced to resign as president. But that's a different phase that's sort of political constitutional legal phase of the watergate crisis and i was interested in the personal psychodrama. Of the watergate. Crisis and the unraveling of the nixon presidency. In fact the unmaking of the president was is what. I was interested in there being. You know a series of books by teddy white. The called the making of the president and i was interested in the unmaking of the president. So could you take us into that decision to not get rid of the tapes to not dispose of them. What was how did that psycho drama play out. Nixon's mind over that decision right. But this is in july of nineteen seventy-three nixon thinks that he can completely control the tapes And that they all his personal property and he can do whatever he wants with him and he won't. His intention was that he would use them for his Memoirs and preps leak them selectively to bolster his own case so that is mindset his aide..

"We can get inside the room which it was impossible for reporters to do at the time of course at least directly right so having done this cold war series you've become basically one of the big cold war historians. What led you since With all the literature out there in watergate. What led you to this story in particular. But i'm interested in turning points in history and all my code will look at specific turning point seven the collapse of communism the cuban missile crisis which was perhaps the ultimate turning point in history because the world could have been destroyed obviously and six months in nineteen forty-five which looked at the genesis of the cold war and how To allies turned into cold war enemies. So you watergate. And the full of richard nixon. The forced resignation of richard. Nixon is another big turning point in modern american history that i wanted to examine but as also attracted by you know the incredible archival material that is now available. I didn't think that it's ever gain to become possible. Be possible again to get such an intimate close up. Look at an american president particularly in american president facing a very grave crisis an exist essential crisis in nixon's case Then we have with nixon In the period that. I'm looking at him. And this is because of his tapes and a whole lot of other material including audio. Diaries tip tapes made by the people. Various investigations memoirs. I mean whenever gain to get this with another american president so that allows one to write the book. In the way novelist might or array. Playwright might Which was in a very exciting for me. Yeah so there's this image that people have of nixon as this lonely. Socially awkward person What did you find out about him. that may have differed or reinforced. What that images. And and how did someone like him. Rise to the highest level of american politics right well. Nixon was very contradictory. Sort of person. I mean he was alona and while the oakwood He was born to pull struggling. Quake parents out in california and his as he wrote himself actually in his own name wa. His parents were the two most opposite. People you can imagine. His father was arrestable angry. Punish the boys Harshly his mother was a very pious cuenca and she subjected them to the silent treatment so within nixon's Own personality you can see the personality of both his parents. I mean he says anga and his resentments certainly reflect his father's personality but is introvert nature and his ambition reflects his mother's personality and his mother's expectations for him. I think what about his background born to a poor quaker family from california. What about that stood out to you. Well he you know was a self made man and He had everything that he achieved in life. basically was the result of his own hard work and strivings and Know he also writes about this. He talks about the some of the resentment he felt growing up. And this being a you know. A focus for his energy Even at college shouldn't he That was elite debate social Social group in at whittier college. And he founded a group of jocks Based on the football team of which he was a member the was. You know trying to an alternative to this Rather stuck up College fraternity So he always identified. Right from other years with the have nots in america and Which he later called the silent majority. So i see a direct link from His early experiences growing up to his Behaviors politician and if you want to draw the connection further on i can see that linked to the kind of people whose support donald trump. So you're saying that it was personal with nixon all the way from the start..

So and when I hear that much testimony from people, I am tend to believe there's probably something to it but I'm not sure what and I would love to know what what keeps me curious but what I brought up with Ron and and what got me curious when you? Said there are other beings that I was unaware of I had started down this road of asking him are because I'm not sure that the phenomenon that we call bigfoot is all the same creature because people have seen different things all over the world and I said it skunk ape bigfoot is Yeti bigfoot are they all the same thing and he really didn't want to even kind of really address that but I'm gathering from what you said they they do. You believe there's a strong possibility they are individual different being. The on definitely individuals I mean even engine legend. If you look at College Square, it says and Legend says is the Kind Forest Lovin. Big squash. As its which is not related, but that's what they described as bigfoot so because Usually it's and that's the genus Januska kills needs people to. Totally different beans two totally different beans. The problem is you can't. Look very similar. The Genus Kwa Tricon Ugly. Right. To say the a short inaugural as what they're saying.

I could find out but I haven't actually asked the question my south the one thing I would say on the description of the genus Ker. It says do release grank smell right that. Yeah. So because I asked that because he's had a lot of bigfoot sightings and he said he'd never smelled anything like Strong odor and so that lent tends to make me believe it's not the same as what these people in Florida are experiencing Tennessee or wherever in the southeast. United, states by. Executive Order, but I would have thought it. would be more in mining areas. That's what they were they. In the mountains when people go in the mountains day of the ones that disappear and never be seen again, all right and and they look Dylan for precious minerals if that, what they're looking for your for spaceships whatever the one. But they? Come. Back to the to the economic because I've had a lot of economics on here and why we why? Why why we put such a value on gold and I never understood that. It's that part of this this theory that gold is part of some universal Because why why is gold so important and why are they looking? Just. Got To be plenty of planets that they could find these minerals on WII. Yeah. Well. Look you say I don't know you would think so I mean somebody Been said that the some of the comments was round not we say every hundred years link of got millions of tons of the precious metals and. So. The the all the metals all over the place. But I'm not an expert on methods. All I I know is what they've said trank on being he has to help the. Alliens to get met the minerals. The atmosphere on earth not bad body shapes and whatever would be different constand, the atmosphere or whatever is. and. You Yourself. You talk about this in public office. You have.

"dobbs" Discussed on MinddogTV Your Mind's Best Friend
"Thank you for patronizing my sponsors Today's show might be a bit of a short one. We have just some things that I wanted to discuss because if you're a regular listener of this program, you know a couple of weeks ago I had a fellow named Ron, Moore head on and he is the author of quantum bigfoot. And his theories about bigfoot having relationships, UFO's and being very advanced in the of quantum physics knowing how to Transcend parallel universes, multi, versus time all of that stuff to become keep itself cloaked in mystery and keep itself hidden from or basically hard to find. From humanity so that was an interesting program and I took some clips of that and posted in some bigfoot groups and my guest today actually So those Clinton remarked to me that there were other animals like that I'm not sure if you use the word animals I'm maybe he's at creatures whatever that I was not aware of, and so I asked him to be on the program to help educate me in some of this stuff and generally I thought of the bigfoot phenomenon phenomenon. As a North American thing, but he's new case. So I'm really curious to to find out about some of the things that he knows about or is interested in heard about their. So pleased without further ado, please open your ears and most importantly open your minds and helped me welcoming Gordon Dot from all from the UK. Gordon. Welcome to the mind TV podcast. Thanks for coming. Hi, thanks for having me on your show. I really appreciate it. So you made a comment and I'm not sure whether. Animals creatures though there were things that I did not know about can you elaborate on that? Yeah. I can I just say I, forgive me I don't follow your show us. No. Surprise, it's a worldwide phenomenon or anything. Wrong moorhead was on I hadn't realized you've been on your show, but I had communications going moorhead the quantum bigfoot and I can add more to that late if you want. Specifically what I was saying to you that was them. On just. Bad with Colin of minutes while I set your. Bihari short introduction, but it goes back a long way I'm going back to the Big Bang. Fourteen billion years ago all the planets and solar systems being established if I think newer, Sola. Or galaxies five billion years new. Not Sense but planets and star systems and everything. The has to be more alien forms than just. Humans yeah. I would agree with. Pat. And not all going to look like us. Yeah. Right and not going to be all tall and good luck to my other. They're gonNA look like anything we don't know. Yeah and some of them are gonNA be maybe at early stage of development going to be caveman maybe or whatever the caveman looks like on a foreign planet. So GonNa behind intelligent way headed what we haven't technology. We think we've done well in fifty sixty years expo exploring space. We haven't even gone boss solar system yet. Right there being here that had been visiting this planet for years. That come from these star systems, billions of years away from boom light years away from us. If you look at A. Eric von Daniken is Bruecke. Chariots of the Gods in was gonNA national. He's clearly sets out three, four, five, ten, thousand years ago. All signs of. Sudden burst of any. Education in in some withdrawn or something that is way beyond what would have happened to normal development. So this things happen things. have been don't having done. So for thousands of years. I'm still continue to do now. We all know that the Roswell at eight fifty one. Some of you have heard or seen Paul helius beacon the Canadian Defence Minister talk very openly about Aliens Tokes rang Otani bad. Different types of creatures being shall we say? He Drives A. Small Short Gray. The toll whites you know like man my on getting ill whites or whites. Token ones yeah yeah. And what you find is A. Full support for what he said in front the Coffee Congressional. I think don't understand your systems ever. We set a hero's something. Explained what was happening and as far as I'm no, I'm not aware of any. Government. Body or whatever shooting him down in flames and saying, no, that's not true. Right away anybody saying that's not true. Actually. The apathy in. What you get now is retired people from the forces on the military. Scientists to be involved in Roswell near fifty one main deathbed confessions whatever insane is absolute true and if and if I may interrupt even beyond that just last week the. Pentagon put out official report that they have. So this is not retired people they have an alien craft. I. Forget the word they use a craft not of this earth vehicle not of this earth that they've been working on. So that's an official government report, but continued me new rapid I I saw I was actually reading watching the videos a day of some American. Officer talking to a group of people looking at Osaman all and he said exactly that he's describing what he'd seen and he was describing the grays tore whites describing the in order spacecraft's I could be false video but all the interaction, the discussion all seem very genuine. So and so that's what we have. We have all sorts of being sold place and and what you got understand. Yes. Quite small place and scientists now are saying the on earth that could be as many as ten twelve, thirteen dimensions..
"dobbs" Discussed on Behind the Steel Curtain
"And then who else would it be? So when they drafted Dobbs in two thousand seventeen seem pretty obvious. You had those three quarterbacks rob burger Jones Dobbs. Now last year was thinking well there is Joshua Dobbs. They just drafted masonry off in the third but Bennell they cut Jarvis Landry. Jones Landry Jones is on employed currently last I checked, and so you now you have this depth chart that is not set in stone. Everyone might think that Joshua's because he was number two. This year will be number two next year. There is something about Mason Rudolph that is intriguing. Me. And maybe it's because I haven't seen him in the NFL that much outside the preseason actually at all outside the preseason. So let's go to Dave. I wanted to tell me what you think going to play out the the backup spot behind Rosberg or coming into next season. All right. You want the stats? I. Before later stats. All right. I thought there was a chance that when they decided to keep Dobbs over Jones because I think we all realize that's what it came down to. It was never a question of whether or not it was going to be Rudolph. I thought there could have been at some point this season where they made the change. When who is who was second who was third. I thought it was possible, but not necessarily that it could happen next year. I think it's really going to be a competition between the two. And they're just going to basically leave it up for their for their play in camping in the preseason. He heating wins out. Stuff to say, we haven't seen Ruto. I don't know Dobbs. He's he's such a good guy. You just want to root for him so much, but Rudolph I think is really going to be the guy. He's gonna be the one. That if something happens where Ben goes down. I think that's who you're going to see coming in the play. It could even be a situation like like some people thought this past year that. Dobbs was more prepared to be the guy that dressed every game to be the backup. But if Ben would have got injured say week six, and there was going to be a long stretch that they might have given route off the shot that that could be it really depends on his progression. From that year one to year two of just learning the NFL can he take the snaps under center. Can he do all those other things I was actually there? The last time he threw a pass a game. I was at the fourth preseason game. And I I really liked what I saw not granted he was playing with a bunch of guys whose names people didn't know going against a bunch of guys whose names, you know. But I I liked what I liked what he did. And will I just he's just gotta move forward. He's got a progress. I mean, I feel that Dobbs really progressed from one to two if Rudolph progresses much Dobbs did that I think he takes over on has moxie. The I I love that word second. Reminds me of Jonathan mocks in from varsity blues, which is one of my favorite sports time. But he has that edge. But he's he's such a professional, man. When you listen to him in interviews. I've said this before it reminds me of listening to Sidney Crosby always cool always calm, always professional and he's got that chip to him. If Dave creepy from wrong wasn't at the fourth preseason game where he got hit late after he scored a rushing touchdown. And he and he went after that guy as I. I like that. I like it. It's the first time in my life. And I've said this multiple occasions is the first time in my life that I've honestly been excited about the future at the quarterback position for the Steelers. But Brian we spend it over to you. Now, what are your thoughts on two and three? How do you shaking out? Well, first of all your varsity blues fan, I use I refuse to wear a whip cream the caney. This show. I'm just telling you right now. But I days. Thanks banker. Speaking my language. Number two..
