Today We Celebrate Veterans Day

"To listen to this proclamation that Dwight Eisenhower when he was president sent to Harvey hegle. He was the administrator of veterans, the fires, designated him as the chairman of the national veterans national fetchers day National Committee. He said, I have today signed a proclamation calling upon all citizens of our citizens to observe Thursday, November 11th. 1950 fours Veterans Day. It is my earnest hope that all veterans, their organizations, the entire citizens citizenry will join hands to ensure proper and widespread observance of this day. With the thought that it will be the most helpful to coordinate the planning, I'm suggesting the formation of Veterans Day national Veterans Day National Committee in view of your great personal interest as well as your official responsibilities. I have designated you to serve as chairman. You may include the committee membership such persons as you deem to select and requesting that all departments communicate this. And he said, I have every confidence that our nation will respond wholeheartedly in the appropriate observance of Veterans Day 1954. Interesting that the former general had that kind of respect and wanted it to be very well known that Veterans Day was something to be proud of and that is really where veterans that comes from. And what does that mean? I mean, somebody who serves somebody who said, okay, and it's not just, and I hear this comment that they said, well, I wasn't. I didn't go overseas. Okay, that's great. Some other thankfully, most who serve a many times in our armed forces never had to deploy in harm's way. They just didn't. Because either we would not at war or the conditions did not see fit for their job or their units to actually have to be deployed. But they started a very valuable role here on the home front or wherever they were stationed, even across the world.

Is Democracy Now Fascism? Lord Conrad Black Weighs In

"On the right win in 2022 in November next month, to me, democracy looks like it's over in America, fascism is here to stay. And if they lose, we get maybe another insurrection, domestic terrorism, a Civil War God forbid. Maddie Hassan MSNBC with a strange definition of fascism if the Republicans win the election, then fascism has arrived. I guess the majority picking who should be in Congress is Marie Hussain's definition of fascism. I know somebody who will have a very different one. Presidential historian former media mogul, financier, judicial reform advocate, and just an all around good friend of the show, lord Conrad black, welcome back to America first. Thanks, Sebastian. I'm delighted to come back and listen to such rubbish. I mean, what that man said. I mean, this is the representative of one of the leading networks. Yes. Democracy is fascism. Now, in fact, fascism as those of you who are listening to are interested are aware was in fact a bunch of street bullies wearing black shirts bearing symbolically the faces as symbol of the authority of the Roman Republic, the Caesars and Julius Caesar anyway. And marching upon Rome and installing an authoritarian government, apart from that Mussolini, he was essentially just one of history's more spectacular scoundrels, though an able man in many ways. I made it up as he went along, but he fell under the spell of Hitler and ended up being shot by communists and hung upside down a gas station. That's fascism. With his girlfriend, hung upside down. And how you equate that to the Republicans winning an election, which happened when Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan, for example, were elected. How you equate that to the Republicans winning an election. I think that's something of psychiatrists and people who deal with severely deranged people would have to have to survey. But let's

Why Did Sylvester Stallone's Wife File for Divorce?

"It really looks like more than a few relationships are in peril these days. Because we had Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer flavin announced that their marriage is irretrievably broken. That's sure sounds like somebody cheated and look, that's someone could have been sly. Forget his age. Up in the high 70s. Women would still take one with slaw. You kidding me? But you know, look, he did cover up the tattoo of Jennifer's face on his shoulder with the face of a dog. This dog sly wanted named Dwight. And Jennifer put her foot down and didn't want the dog. I can't believe in marriage would blow up for that, but he went and got that tattoo of Dwight over his wife's face. That's hardcore shit. Does the tattoo mean that he caught her cheating on him? And he thinks she's a dog? But that's doesn't work because she's the one who filed for divorce. I'm still trying to get to the bottom of this one, and it's going to be very hard. Slides friends have tight lips. They don't talk.

Charlie Reflects on President Dwight D. Eisenhower's Wise Warning

"At in this moment right now is a fulfillment of the warning that Dwight D. Eisenhower gave us in his farewell address. Many of you know it as the military industrial complex address. Now remember, Dwight D. Eisenhower's never politician before he came president. He was a 5 star general. He was supreme commander of the allied forces, he was a total American hero. And at the end of his life, he was like, what are you going to do, kill me? I'm going to warn people what's coming next. We didn't listen to his warning, but we should today play cut 46. Yet in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should. We must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific technological elite. Is the task of statesmanship to mold to balance and to integrate these and other forces new and old. Within the principles of our democratic system, ever aiming towards the supreme goals of our free society. Then we need a president like that right now. I want to read what he said that we need to have an equal fear. Of an unelected scientific elite, corrupting public policy. That's exactly what's happening with the great reset.

Understanding the Importants of Taiwan

"I have a couple of questions for you because I'm not an expert on foreign policy and it's just doesn't sound right when president Joe Biden goes out and says he's going to defend Taiwan militarily. It seems inconsistent with what we would normally do. Obviously we would help fund them and their military action, but I want you to explain it to the audience because is this a bad thing that President Biden said this or is he right on track with his comments? Yeah, it's a great question. And so I was in the military for 25 years. And after that, I've been doing foreign policy national security heritage for almost 20 years. And been all over the world, talk to people all over the world in the Taiwan before. So here's the reality. This is the cold reality. And this is actually been true since the 1950s. Since Dwight Eisenhower was the president of the United States. The reality is the United States would fight to keep China from taking over Taiwan. And here's why. Taiwan is the key island in what's called the first island chain. If the Chinese government controlled everything from Taiwan down to the South China seas, essentially they could deny the United States access to the entire Asian continent.

A Look Back at the Life of Dwight Eisenhower

"Of course, was the 34th president of the United States. He served from 53 to 61. Sort of the capstone of his career, you know, most do knowing his president, but most know him again as he is being the supreme ally commander in Europe at the end of World War II and leading the offensive of all of our allies against the axis forces and Hitler and Nazi Germany. These all playing together for this became his final speech and there's a lot written about Eisenhower and I would encourage you just to the wood of Washington. If you want to know more about the man themselves, you want to know about how they grow up how they came about, I would encourage you to read their several books out there to go read about them because they're fascinating in their where they came from and how they got there. In fact, it's a really interesting correlation between sort of three presidents in a row and this is an extra for you podcast listeners today. For listening, you know, if you look at the middle of the century in the United States during the came out of the FDR presidency coming out of the great depression moving into World War II, you had a person who was in essence grown for politics. He was groomed in many ways and his family from his cousin to everybody to be a politician to be a leader of governor or president. That's what FDR Franklin Roosevelt was sort of groomed to be. And then you have the one who became president one of the biographies of his accidental president. Harry Truman was one who was not groomed. He came from very humble backgrounds. He came from a very working class middle of the country background and Missouri to know to the presidency. And took those took that office very seriously because of where he came from and in the desire to serve the country. And then you transition to another midwesterner in Eisenhower. So in the middle of our time frame there in which we went through The Great Depression World War II into what began the use of the atomic bomb, the use of the beginning of the Cold War. And then the space race toward the end of Eisenhower's term that was beginning, again, this buildup of nuclear power, this buildup of military power through Eisenhower's administration and even the beginnings of what we say we see the battle of Korea. And then we see the start of what would be known is from our perspective later in Eisenhower's administration owning the candidates and then Johnson's is the Vietnam War.

They Are Collapsing the Dollar

"So part of the global world order that we live under, post World War II. Is the idea that America will protect the sea lanes, America will keep peace in the continents. And in exchange, the world will use the dollar as the world reserve currency. So this idea of globalism has been kind of half tried, if you will. Many times the League of Nations by Woodrow Wilson, it was tried and failed miserably. The United Nations was a feeble attempt. Now, when we talk about the global order that was established in post World War II, let's say post World War II geopolitics, the world was a very, let's say damaged place. The world in more ways than one had difficulty being able to rebuild itself and to bring itself out of the, not just the troubles, but the widespread carnage that occurred because of the axis versus the allies conflict. So as a solution, Dwight D. Eisenhower and many others came up with a plan. That because the United States dollar was so strong because all of the fighting except for a Pearl Harbor happened outside of America in America suffered great losses in World War II, but far less losses than the 20 million civilians and army troops that died in Russia, far less than the 7 million people that were killed in the Holocaust and far less than the 5 million people that were killed that were German citizens or army members, far less than the 1.8 million that were killed in Great Britain or far less than the 1.5 million that were killed in Japan and the industrial base of Japan was depleted and Germany was in tatters, so the entire industrialized world kind of looked to one country as a way to keep the world order afloat.

"Trusted aid, do I just a few seconds in this segment? What was the last time you laid eyes on Nixon? I believe we were at a reunion, maybe three or four months before he died. Wow. We're going to be right back continued conversation with Dwight Chapin. The book is the president's man, the memoirs of Nixon's trusted aid. It rhythm. Wouldn't you get the blues? Come on, get rubber. When you get. Folks, welcome back, the book is the president's man Dwight Chapin. So you were with him from when you were a very young man to the very end of his life. Did Nixon change in your eyes? Was he a different man shortly before his death than he had been in the presidency in any way? Yes. I believe he changed. I met him when he was first after he had just been vice president and like with anyone. With doctor Kissinger, any of these men, I mean, they are getting older. They are getting that thing called wisdom, wiser, and they are working at a different pace. There's more space in discussions and thinking about things. So president Nixon to me was always the same man, but there was just this shifting and more of a relaxed thing about him. In the days when he's running for office and dealing with the political issues, that calls for basically a different kind of psychic than when you've moved to being an author and you're looking back and reflecting Bill Clinton had an interesting comment. He talked about Nixon's trip to Russia right before Nixon died he went to Russia, and he came back and he wrote this very long memorandum to president Clinton analyzing everything that was going on in Russia. So it was kind of a perspective mentality. So Nixon died and what was 2002 or something like that? And you're saying he went so after the Soviet Union had fallen, he Nixon went back. I didn't remember this. And one of the things he always did was to talk to all of the leaders on the way up that were not necessarily in power. So he never just relied on talking to whoever was running a country. He wanted to talk to the opposition and to the others involved. And he made that a practice throughout his whole political career. But he wrote this memorandum that president Clinton has talked about often. It's amazing what's happening with Russia today. I personally don't understand. It strikes me that the reason we're in the mess we're in is because of the almost unprecedented weakness of the American presidency, that the weakness of America because of Joe Biden is so extraordinary that it is as dramatic and invitation to malice as you could ever see, whether to China and Taiwan or Russia and Ukraine. And I simply wonder what Nixon would make of where we are today. Well, it would be fascinating to know. He read a book that Charles De Gaulle wrote when Charles De Gaulle was a young man called the edge of the sword. And I talk about this in the book. In that book that de Gaulle wrote, he talked about the need for the leader to be kind of separate from though that he's leading. One thing that's happened in America, in my opinion, is that our leaders have tried to be friends, if you will, to the general population. That's why they, it's almost like they take an entertainers approach to having fans versus a separation that leads to a more thoughtful leadership. That is very very, okay, we're going to drag you over into our two lock the doors, folks. We'll be right.

"Ever since. And have you stayed in touch with some of the Nixon old hands? You mentioned I've stayed in touch with every Nixon old hand except for John dean. John dean, I remember this is not a joke when I was first hired to work for chuck holson. I hadn't even started yet. And I flipped on the TV and so this must have been 1999. And who is on Charlie rose, but John dean. And I listened to John dean. I barely recognized him from the Watergate era. And listened to him talk in his bitterness and he even said things nasty things about my future boss and friend chuck Coulson on the Charlie rose program and I was astonished to hear to hear these things. I think he was cynical. He was kind of stuck in the mode of cynicism with regard to chuck that chuck has just reinvented himself and there's nothing new. He's still The White House hatchet man who'd run over his grandmother to reelect the president. But so apart from dean, nonetheless, you have stayed in touch with a lot of the folks. I assume Patrick Buchanan is one of them. Yes, he is. He's a great friend. Trusted friend. I want to say a word on dean. In the book, at the back of the book, there's an appendix. And we have some tapes from John dean and Nixon in the Oval Office. And the way that it can work, a reader can go to the transcripts, and we tell them precisely how to go on the Internet and where to go on the Internet, and they can hear the actual voices of dean and Nixon talking. And what it proves beyond any doubt is that from the Watergate, the time that it happened in June of 1972. Through to March of 1973, when dean met with Nixon in the Oval Office, he never told the president the truth of what happened. And we have this documented. It's one of the most important things in the book. Now, when you say that dean never told the truth of what happened, what was it that he was being quiet about and why do you suppose he was doing that? Dean did not tell the president the truth because John dean was at the central. He was at the heart of what happened. We have an FBI report in the back of the book that it calls John dean. This was written three years later for the director of the FBI. After their investigation, and they label him the master manipulator of Watergate. And John dean didn't tell the president what the truth was because he didn't want to expose his culpability. It's unbelievable. Well, I'm glad that you are setting this record straight because it is fascinating. When we think of the nefarious Ness of subsequent administrations, it makes whatever Nixon did, look almost like nothing. Well, let me be clear here. Richard Nixon was on with David Frost, and he apologized to the nation for his role in this. But you need to look at how it ended up, that he got into it. And he was very mister served by an unfaithful aid named John dean. It's extraordinary. History is important, ladies and gentlemen, facts are important, don't base your opinions on semi facts. We're talking to the author of the president's man, the memoirs of Nixon's.

"And particularly how these nations conduct themselves. And I think one of the great things that president Trump did was to elevate this whole awareness of what was going on with the Chinese. And basically start waking up our nation. And that is still underway. And I think it's catching. I think the public's getting it. But a lot of credit to president Trump for bringing that to the forefront. There's absolutely no question about that. The nefarious Ness of the communist Chinese. It's unthinkable to most Americans because most Americans haven't had to deal with that level of evil. And so it takes us time to understand that those people will stop at nothing to gain power to do what's necessary. And many, of course, in our own country, have helped this along. But I guess that's nothing new. I mean, there were many people from Lillian hellman on in the 30s and 40s who were apologists for Stalin. I mean, which seems somehow more shocking. But it's a fight. Americans need to understand that this is not some nice thing going back and forth. We're talking about ideological overcoming of other nations. And the Chinese have got to be put into the proper context and we are people have to understand what's at stake here. And I don't believe that the majority of the population knows that.

And you were just sharing another moment, a personal moment. Yes. The moment was that we were getting ready to land in Rome. And one of the visits we were going to make was to the Vatican to see the Pope. And he called in his military aid. Was it Pope Paul? Yes, I believe. I believe it was pull Paul. I'm just trying to guess. You would have that. Yeah, I think so. So what he said to his military aide he says, I want you to check around Air Force One. And find out who's Catholic. And then he invited all that were Catholic, plus some of us that were not Catholic that were part of the official party. To go with him for the meeting with the Pope. And I'll never forget this little Filipino steward who was standing there and the president of the United States introduces the steward from Air Force One to the Pope and this young man with the tears coming down his face. One had to be the greatest moment in that man's life. And I mentioned that because Nixon had that kind of sensitivity and would do things like that and no one ever knows about it. It's funny because Nixon what happened in the 60s and Nixon one way or the other kind of fell into it. He became the sort of boogeyman of the left. The one whom everyone had permission to hate because whatever it was, he was, he somehow represented, I guess when you think of the climate of the 60s, he became someone that was, he gave a face to what people believed that they hated or they were against or something like that. So he's been so vilified in the 50 years since then. Unless you knew him personally or have a different have a different view, and so it is interesting to hear about these human moments that you describe what he was actually like. And he had his weaker moments as captured on some of the tapes. Unfortunately, but the question is, who hasn't had weak moments in terrible moments? The only thing is that we didn't either we didn't tape them or we had the good sense to burn the tapes. Just kidding. It's still hard for me to believe that you were with him in China. How many days was he there for this trip? He was there for a complete week. And he said at the banquet, climate of the trip, when the Shanghai communication was issued, he said, this was the week that changed the world. And about 20 some years later, we did an event in Washington at the peace center. And Secretary of State Hillary Clinton came over and talked, and she said, to say that it was a week that changed the world, was one of the great understatements. Well, now it is, of course, complicated because as you said earlier, Nixon was smart enough, appreciate enough to know that we would have trouble with China in the future. It strikes me that a lot of cavalier conservatives had this happy clappy idea that, oh, you know, the free market is the messiah that if we have free market, it will lead to every kind of freedom, which is nonsense. It doesn't make any sense and practically speaking, of course, will never happen and didn't happen. But it doesn't seem that Nixon fell into that in the way that, let's say, president Clinton and president George W. Bush did. I think that they were genuinely naive about China. Yes. The idea was that if we got all of this commerce going that the Chinese orientation of their communism and everything else would start falling by the wayside. That has proven not to be the case. In fact, things may be tighter there and now than they've been in generations. And there's no question that commerce matters and that we need to have it. But it's got to be secondary to the foreign policy aspects..

"Be right back. When you were gone I tried to stop. Hey folks, I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth Talbot have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like next shoulder back hip or knee pain, 1995, about a dollar a day, but what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month. If it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older or to the three week quick start for 1995, let's see if we can get you at a pain too. Go to relief factor dot com relief factor dot com or call 805 108 three 8 four 805 108 three 8 four relief factor dot com. I use it. It works. Hey folks, if you could make money off of abortion or pornography, would you do it? I hope the answer is no. But I want to tell you, Robert netze, the founder of inspire insight dot com, he was the president of his local pro life pregnancy center.

Now I'm able to clean out the junk and invest in companies actually doing good things go to inspire insight dot com today and register for free. That's inspire insight dot com, go there. Let's welcome back. We're talking about Richard Nixon, the president. The book is the president's man, the memoirs of Nixon's trusted aid, Dwight, Chapin. So Dwight, really, we are now around the 50 year mark for Nixon's trip to China. You were with him on that trip. I was with him on the trip. I went with doctor Kissinger first in October of 1971. You can just call him Hank. Yes. We've known him for 50 years. Let's just take Henry. Yeah, with Henry. So you went with a Kissinger. I'm wondering also, well, anyway, so, but when we think of history, Nixon's trip to China, that is as historical as it gets, so talk about that. It's the most historical diplomatic trip in history, really. It remains to be that. And it was incredibly complicated. Nixon sent Kissinger over on a secret mission and out of that came an invitation for Nixon to visit. The president sitting with him in the Oval Office said, I'm going to go and I'm going to take 9 people with me. We'll go on a jet star. It's going to be understated. It will be all business. And by the time we ended up making all the arrangements and getting it together, 391 people were part of our party. It took several airplanes and it turned out to be one of the global event because what happened with television, everybody went to China with Nixon, and it was an event unlike any that had ever taken place in the country. And you know, I'm sorry. The public tuned in in massive numbers. Morning and night because there was a 12 hour time change between Beijing and the east coast. So all of the events that we would plan in the morning were on nighttime television here in the United States. And I explain all that in the president's man. Well, we have to give some context because there are a lot of people listening who won't understand the geopolitical situation when Nixon and Kissinger cooked up this genius plan. We had the Soviet Union existed as a monolith, it was inconceivable that it would ever fall, they were the CNN of their day, ladies and gentlemen. And the idea that the Soviet Union, we were in this Cold War, Nixon was, of course, famously dedicatedly anti communist, and so he comes up with this idea of playing red China against the Soviet Union, which is brilliant, but talk about that because it's fascinating. It's brilliant and keep in mind, you know, at the center of this, we have the Vietnam War going on. So he's trying to end the war and he's trying to negotiate all this. In fact, it's quite interesting right. When I saw the picture the other day of Putin over there in China for the Olympics, I thought, whoops. Yeah, we've moved a long way from what Nixon was trying to accomplish and actually we need to figure out how to how to get this back onto that track. It's interesting, Eric, that 50 years ago, right now, when Nixon was opening up this door to China. He said, he said, in 50 years, we're going to be adversaries, and we've got to be able to talk to one another. And that's what was one of his key purposes. So he envisioned that this thing was going to get very complicated. And indeed, it has. When you think of somebody as politically astute and as historically astute as Nixon, it's painful to see the current crop of bumblers who seem that they don't seem to know what might happen next week, much less than 50 years. Nixon understood that this was complicated. And of course, Kissinger famously coined the term. In other words, you could look at it cynically. In other words, you could look at it cynically and there is something dark to the idea of realpolitik. Right. Right. I think it is so consequential. That we do not have at the highest level in our government. People that think as strategically as Richard Nixon did. He looked at this in the long view. But to keep in mind, here's a man he had been senator, he had been vice president under Eisenhower. He had been out of office in the wilderness years and traveled the world during that whole time. He thought of how he wanted what he was going to do if he should be have the privilege of being elected president. He was a man that was the consummate workaholic, if you want, that did nothing but try to conceive policy. And that is one of the things I think we really lack.

"So you did you must have known a chuck holson who, of course, is my principal connection to Nixon. Yes, I knew chuck. I knew chuck very well. There's two chucks. There's chuck pre prison and chuck post prison. And it took me a little while to come around and believe that this transformation had taken place. But I spent a lot of time with chuck after he got out of prison and when he started doing his prison fellowship work. And I can guarantee as you very well know this man carried the lord in his heart. Well, that's the extraordinary thing is that when a conversion is that dramatic, it is natural to be skeptical. I mean, when Saul of tarsus said, I'm going to stop persecuting Christians and I'm going to start preaching the gospel. Very few of the Christians of that day, many of whom are now officially saints, believed that this could be true. And I'm old enough to remember the sneering at chuck Coulson's conversion to faith that everybody nasty man, you know, how is it even possible? It's clearly a ploy to redeem himself and so on and so forth. And I've often said that one of the proofs of Christian faith of Christian conversion is a life like chuck Coulson. For the people who knew him before, as you did, and after you just say, there's no accounting for that. If I have to solve for X, there's only one answer. It's a miracle. God did something. They can not be achieved through force of will or a Tony Robbins conference or whatever it is. But to your book here. So what do you cover in the book? I imagine it's a smorgasbord of your experiences with Nixon. Yes, it's full of all kinds of stories. But what I really am aiming to do in my book, and I think it's, I think I get there very easily, is to tell the story of the man I knew. There's so much misconception about Richard Nixon. You know, most people look at him and think he's either about Watergate or he's about China. But this is a man that served for almost a half a century as a public servant, and he did great things for the country. His accomplishments were significant. And I try to zero in on the accomplishments, but I spend a lot of time analyzing and explaining why he thought the way he did. And where his brilliance came from. This is a man who worked his way up the ladder. I mean, when he was a young man, he'd get up at four 30 in the morning and go into Los Angeles and pick out the groceries for his father's produce store and then go off to school. Here's a young man who got into Harvard, but couldn't go because he couldn't even afford the train ticket. So he went to Whittier. Here's a guy that they called, they called his nickname at duke law school with iron butt because he studied constantly. We're going to have to, we're going to have to pause here. We'll.

Author Dwight Chapin Reflects on How the US Presidency Has Changed

"We're talking to Dwight Chapin. Who's the author of the president's man, the memoirs of Nixon's trusted aid. And do I just reprise things, you're an extremely young man in your 20s when you serve Nixon in The White House and this book, you go into all of those details and the stories, but I was just asking you about current events and you were reflecting on how the presidency has changed and how Nixon obviously of an older school was willing to be less a friend of the people and to kind of it's an interesting thing. I think this has to do with the advent of the media and social media. It's very difficult for someone like a Trump, for example, to maintain that distance, that Twitter gave him immediate access. And that has an upside and a downside. Yes. Nixon's focused and thought about how do you lead? I mean, this was something he studied and let's take Vietnam for an example. With the Vietnam War, I forget the exact number, but he went on national television like 7 times, had maps had arrows. He took the public along with him. That's why when, I mean, he was elected into office in 1968. And he won an overwhelming majority. He won everything except Massachusetts and the District of Columbia. Which is hilarious 1972. You have to be clear. Mcgovern was from Massachusetts. So the idea that liberal Massachusetts with its representative, running against Nixon, was the only place besides TC. I mean, you talk about a

He was 39 or whatever. But you must have been practically a kid. How old were you? And when you say you were his trusted aide, and what capacity did you serve him? So people have a context of the book that you've written called the president's man. Well, I was 28 when he was inaugurated as president. And went into The White House. So my first years in The White House, I was our first year. I was 28 years old. But when he ran for governor back in 1962, after he lost to Jack Kennedy, he ran for governor in California, and I was 20 years old, and I was hired by the man that would become his chief of staff, bob haldeman. I was hired when I was 20 to be a field man in Southern California. So I had first met him when I was 20 years old. Did you grow up in California? I grew up basically in Kansas until I was 14 and then my family migrated out to California when I was 14 years old and I went to college out there..

"I'm back with Dwight Chapin. He's the author of the president's man, he's a former personal aide and then deputy assistant to president Richard Nixon and we're talking here about the enigma of Nixon. But let me start by asking you, Dwight, I mean, here you are now reflecting back on your earlier life where at a young age, you found yourself right there in the middle of things working with bob halderman who was the chief of staff right there with Nixon in a sense managing Nixon's day and how does that experience feel to you now with some perspective and with some time having passed? Well, it feels because I've written the president's man. It feels very familiar because I spent so much time reflecting back using archival materials, my diaries, letters that had been exchanged by with bob haldeman and so forth. So right now the feelings are very raw. I worked with a collaborator who was very helpful in that he kept asking me as we did certain things. How does that feel? And it's amazing how when you start focusing, you can count up the feelings that you had 50 years ago. For me, going back and doing this was a labor of love. I admired the man so much. And to be able to at 81 years old, have the opportunity to go back and capture these memories, capture these events and try to describe the man I knew was a real

"Again pierce sports with Jeff bloom. So I want to make sure I said, say, hey, Jeff, thanks for tuning in here, man. He's got KXP S ten ten. And so welcome in, man. All right, let's talk a little bit about the mentality. So Matt, the Lakers tonight, we saw in the first quarter they had some energy. Russell Westbrook was rocking the baby, right? He was fired up. And it was good to see. Like, okay, there's the energy that we've been looking for. And then the calls started to really turn the tide of the game. We saw, I mean, look, I will say there were some questionable calls. There were some that I had felt. And look, I'm biased, but there was somewhere I felt that the Lakers got the Ryan, right? They did not get a good whistle. And the Lakers, though, as a team, like, fans can get upset when you're sitting on the couch, you can yell at the TV. You can be upset about a call, but if you're on the team, you can't let that completely take you out of the game mentally. And I felt like that's what the Lakers did. And the sun's compounded that because Chris Paul started with his little antics and the flopping and all that kind of stuff as soon as the Lakers got in the bonus and they went into this downward spiral that they just couldn't seem to pull themselves out of, and they started getting really frustrated, and then we see the little skirmish between Dwight Howard and Anthony Davis, which everybody's going to be talking about it until the Lakers play again on Sunday. This is going to be a major talking point. That was what the halftime show spent most of their time talking about as well. And it just felt like they couldn't pull themselves out of it mentally. As much as we want to talk about the tactics and everything, they checked out of the game mentally. How do you go about fixing that? I think that's a big concern for me. It wasn't until the fourth quarter when suddenly it felt like everybody went, oh, okay, we're going to play basketball again. Yeah, I mean, look, it's early in the season. And I think there's going to be a lot of growing pains with this team. And I think, especially when you consider that this is a team full of veteran players. So to struggle this much, this early on and they've been talking all off season about chemistry and playing together. And that's going to take some time to work things out. So I think when you get a game like this where, you know, you're up to begin with and then things kind of like what you said spiral continuously from the second quarter all the way up to the fourth quarter. You know, I think that's hard for any team to overcome. And so how do you go about fixing it? Obviously, you know, you just have to play better. One. Two, yeah, play better, be better. But no, really, I think it's just a matter of trying to play through the whistle stay composed. Obviously, we've seen this with the Lakers beforehand where calls don't go their way. They feel like they're getting the short end of the stick, right? And it just kind of compounds and spirals continuously up until the end of the game. They just have to get out of their own heads. They need to come together as a team. They need to communicate more. I feel like, you know, they just got to play through it..

"We just have to sit with the laws and realize that this is a team that's clearly figuring things out on the fly. And Frank Vogel doesn't really have a choice as far as rotations and lineups go just given the injury. So I'm going to look at it that way. And I'm not going to take too much from this loss. It was a bad one. It was really ugly in certain stretches, but I'm still not going to panic. It's two games into an 82 game season. So it's a marathon not a sprint. That's tonight looked. That's probably the wise approach to take, right? Is not to panic at this point. Not to panic. I do want to get into it. We got a super chat here from always winning. Everyone talking about trading Westbrook, honestly, I think we should take a look at trading Anthony Davis. A the day is supposed to be good. He looks gassed out. Again, do not panic. Do you know how I'm panicking? Here's the thing, right? I saw this O all over social media. We saw Frank Vogel. He's the problem. The referees, he's the problem. The effort that was the problem. Anthony Davis is the problem Russell Westbrook is the problem. There is no single answer. I know for some reason we tend to look at that and we tend to say, okay, this one thing. This is that if we just change this one thing, then everything would be fine, right? Everything would be great. That's not the case. That's not to say that any of those things are wrong. I think you could say that some of the coaching decisions were not the best tonight or in the previous game. You can say that the effort was not the best. And in this one, it would certainly. And it was one of my biggest issues with this game. Was the effort. You can say some of the decision making by Russell Westbrook's not the best, right? It's all of these things that's coming together to create what we've seen. In addition to the newness of the team, the fact that you've got only three players held over from last season and one of those guys is hurt right now. You've got that factor. You've got the age of the team. Is that a factor I don't think it is at this point, but there's a lot of different things that have come together to create the issues that we're seeing at the moment. So it's not like there's one thing everybody shouting trade Westbrook or get rid of this guy, fire Vogel, but there is no single fix here. It's a lot of things that have come together to create what we saw. Now, that being the case, I am going to get into the stats and things like that in just a second. But Matt, what were you most concerned about during this game?.

"65 home run. Distorted everything. And people will say, well, you still got to hit the ball. But when I see guys that I played against, they would hit the ball four 20, four 30. And then all of a sudden they're hitting the ball 500 feet. Or they're throwing 92 93 miles an hour. Now they're throwing 98.99. Sure. Yeah. And then you're going something's going on here. And, you know, to me, I think that that changed the view with me and my my time on the ballot. I think this made me me justifying it. I was watching an MLB network show and it was about the team of the 80s they put together a team of the 80s. And I think it's largely the 80s just gets disrespected because you looked at some of the names on that team. Rick Anderson, Mike Schmidt, obviously. Yeah, yeah. But then there's Dwight Evans. And then there's Dale Murphy. And there's Mattingly. And there's all these great players from the 80s that just completely kind of get ignored that those are days media members, like we always make fun of them. The nerds in baseball would absolutely adore these guys. Absolutely. You know, I mean, these are those are three big names from that era. And to me, it's ridiculous. But you know, nowadays Dwight, they talk about war. You know, the stat. Or? Yeah, I still don't understand it. I don't either. But everybody, it's like it's their big number now. All his war was this and that, well, I looked up your war in your career. And the war is above replacement, right, Ben? Yes. So the winds above replacement, the only guys that came in the Red Sox in the history of the Red Sox in war, ahead of you were Ted Williams, yaz, boggy, snuck pasture, and you know who was behind you? David Ortiz. So you're clearly the fourth best war player in the history of the Red Sox, and you're not in the Hall of Fame. And they didn't retire number, and I'm pissed. I am pissed about this. I don't understand. You know, you're asking, you're bringing up some great subjects, but I can't comment on that. I know. Well, that's because you're a humble guy. I don't understand it, but you know me, I'm just gonna go over and just do my job. I still work with organization. I love what I do. I love the owners I love. I love the organization, period. I guess the one of the best compliments I have had is from Theo Epstein and Dave dumbrowski and other general managers saying you're the kind of player I'd go after today. If you're type of player was around and hey, that's the player I'd want on my team. And that to me is a compliment. And I think had had to do with the war staff and other stats on base was huge. People say, well, how come how come when you started getting more home runs and more walks and a guy named Ralph came to us and he goes, you know, I've been looking at you and watching your own base percentage. Instead of you been 6 7s and 8s, he's like, I'm gonna hit you a second. He says, you have the best on base percentage or anybody on the team. That was back in, I think 81. Right. And I didn't think of it that way. But what I was doing was one more at bat for a game. So the walks were more. The home runs were more and RBIs were more. One more at that per gain, that's a 162 more at bats was a big thing for me. You'll have the lead twice in OPS, which is another number. They refer to a dramatically all the time. But to me, it was like a combination platter. You know, you were talking about Willie made. You did everything well, and the fielding was the one I said, you know what? As a matter of fact, 20 Devin's, I want to tell you something. We have brought in a Bob Dylan impersonator to do a tribute song to you at number 24. Do you want to listen to it before we say goodbye? I'd love to. This is a Bob Dylan impersonator. His name is Ned. Ned, bring him in here. We're going to do it right now. This.

"Okay, here we go. When you lose a ball, that's a scary situation. And so no one was more surprised than me. I jumped and my glove went behind my head. And the bottom line I didn't like. What a catch by welcome to the planet Mikey show. Yes indeed. A lot of outs and eclips we're gonna talk to Dwight Evans in a moment here. But first, let's introduce episode one 46. I think I got that, right? Are you sure? Of the award winning planet Mikey podcast. Now, we might be hesitant to specify exactly which awards we've won. I can tell you that one of them is the sit award SIT, which stands for stuck in traffic, which means we're number one for people who know that listening to this podcast is just a little bit better than steaming and swearing and all the jerks on the road. Who are doing exactly what you're doing. Along with Bill Smith, not to be confused with Will Smith The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Men in Black. My name is Bill Smith and it's and certainly not to be confused with former Major League Baseball players Smith. They didn't even have his first name in the all time record book. What's a big family? Smith played one game 5 played appearances one hit pitch 6 innings gave up an earned run average of 9 Smith where they know exactly what he did in the game, but don't know his name, but she's sad. And we're also here with young Ben kitchen who is rarely confused with anybody who's ever solved a Rubik's Cube. Or even something ice cube, but he did gain some notoriety for putting a photo of his grundle on Facebook after his yoga class. Ben kitchen. Now we're sponsored by Leonard hair transplant associates and doctor Matthew la presti, the best in permanent hair restoration with offices in Boston, Newton Braintree Warwick Rhode Island and Salem New Hampshire called 800 get hair. And scheduled a free consultation with doctor Robert Leonard or doctor la presti. One guy who never, ever will need hair transplant surgery. This guy's got a head of hair. I mean, he looks like a male model, and I see him on the commercials for that law firm. He keeps getting younger every day. He's a member of the Red Sox Hall of Fame. And of course, in my opinion, and in the opinion of many, many knowledgeable baseball fans he should be in cooperstown as well. One of the nicest guys ever to play in Boston. Classy guy, 385 home runs. Number 24 Dwight Evans everybody. Do we? Mikey, how are you? Yeah. House Florida. Florida is it's about 30° warmer here than it is up there. It just got done raining at down port for about 30 minutes and took the humidity out there. And I played golf. It's a great day. It's a great day. I'm looking forward to the game tonight. How'd you hit him? How did you hit him on the golf course? First of all. I hit too many. I had too many swings. I had fun. I go out and I have fun. And work on a game of Friends down here and just go out and don't accept too seriously. Now Dewey, I call it, do you have to declare this clarify this? Just so you know who's asking you the questions here tonight, okay? If it's me, Mikey asking you, I'm going to say, so do we? And you can say, oh, that's my. If someone says, hey, Dwight, it's Bill Smith. Hey. It's me, it's going to be mister Evans. Mister. That's mister Evans. Right. That's right. Do respect for the man. Now, you and your beautiful wife, Susan living in South Florida, Southwest Florida. Now you told me the other day on the phone. You guys have been together 51 years and you got married when you were what? 18 or 19. 18. And on the September, we were married 51 years. Yeah. And it sits, you know what it's gone by quick. But it's been a great life, and she's been a great late for all those years. So we met at 15 and just high school sweethearts. Yeah, well, high school sweeter, but we just go away. I signed a 17 and went away and then went away at 18 and came back and asked for a father's or her hand from the father. And at 18 years old, that was swallowing with my mouth open. And no, it was great. He said, how are you going to take care of it? And I said, well, if I don't, if I don't do well in baseball, I'll be a fireman or an LAPD or whatever I have to do to support. Back then it was commitment. We should think about right, we had $400 in our pockets and had to go to had to go to Sarasota for instructional league and got $500 a month for two months. And then had to fend for yourself the rest of the time. But a little did he know, though that you were going to hit 385 major league home runs. How did he know that? You know, you were just starting out. We didn't even know that until the 80s, we didn't figure that out till the 80s, right, right? Right. You know, you know, I didn't hear anything about that, till I went to and everyone that goes white people. Well, I went to Baltimore because I got fired and I was no longer wanted with the Red Sox. So I went to Baltimore. I'm glad I did for one year. I wish I could have stayed in Boston. No question. But I got to play as Cal Ripken. Junior and his father was like Rommel. He was loved him in just those great experience, and countless MVP that year. So it was a pleasure to watch him and see how a different organization worked too. What about the fans in Baltimore too? You know, they had a decade of well, you remember the 70s. In fact, that's where I first met you. At the cross keys in in Baltimore, you're sitting at a table in one of the diner and one of the restaurants there, do eat with Louis T and I walk up, I go, hey, do we and Louie? And you looked at me like, do I need like, do I need this? You know, here comes another guy wants me to sign a placemat, you know? Yeah. But you were very polite. And I give you credit that Louis, of course, I didn't understand a word he said, but that have we ever. None of us have. You know, he's such a pleasure to be around and you think about his second language and he speaks very good English and, you know, but, you know, back then, if you put a microphone from him, he didn't have the confidence in his English. He was probably the funniest guy. Did you ever put a uniform on? And he made us laugh and kept us loose and he just was a funny man in a lot of every time I see him and give him a hug, and he kissed her each other's cheek and it's like a family. Everybody loves a neat guy. Back then, you ask him about the game, you know, you'd say, hey, Louie, okay, they tried to take you out in the 8th inning, what happened? I thought I thought he's my boy. He's my gang. Yeah, I'm gonna push him back because it's my gun on your ball. Yeah, yeah. He said, get out of here. Hey, you horse shit down on you go back and sit down on the bench. Go sit back down and dug out. You had some unbelievable teammates. Now, just let's start at the beginning here for a second because we all know that you spend a little moment at the end, but for the rest of the career is Boston Red Sox player. And you play more games of Red Sox player than ever except he has, I believe, right? Oh, I had 19 years there. I loved it. And I loved the fans and I can't say enough about that. But when you started go ahead, you have a question, go ahead. I'm interrupting. No, when you started, though, you were a little bit of a lathe so you're ten years old and you find playing baseball. I have to go to Hawaii. You came back to Southern California. Then you've suddenly found out about baseball. How did that.

"Saudi fighter, 25, with the Super Chat from YouTube said, is it weird that we heard all the news? Like Carmelo Anthony is basically a Laker yet? No announcement. Also, Dennis is punching the air right now dead. Second part first, yes, it's looking more and more likely, the dentist router will be regretting turning down that for years. 84 million contract offer from the Lakers and perhaps, it's the Lakers will be a little bit off of that. He did turn that down, but it's like a little mini Nerlens Noel situation. But what do you guys think? Carmelo Anthony. This is not the only person who have asked about that. I've had a few people asking about Carmelo and do you still see a page for him on this team? Now that Trevor Ariza is is in town. I actually do, and there's a reason. Why is because I think that the Lakers are pretty sure that Carmella will come. If they call, but I think at this point, the guys that we've seen so far, I think they probably had more bidders. So, the Lakers needed to prioritize them first and that's why the news came out about their agreements. But as far as Melo goes, I think there's a radio wink wink agreement that once they've gone through their flurry of moves and the initial wave free agency. Then they'll then they'll go ahead and sign Carmelo so long. I actually think that you know she's there if they want him and I think he's just kind of waiting on them to finish kind of like how we saw last offseason with Jared Dudley ride, where we knew he was coming back. But he was one of the last ones to get announced was already a done deal of how I feel about mellow to. Yeah, I agree. I think that could be it could be the case. It did seem like not a certainty but like a 95%. He felt kind of like Dwight word White House. We felt pretty confident he was coming back and lo and behold he is he's coming back. So I feel like Carmelo, Anthony could still get a spot on this team but again, he he is no spring chicken either..

"Now what do you think? What do you think about this whole situation? I mean this is this is a essentially though on the positive side, this is playing out the way the Lakers would want to play out in terms of Dennis Shooters. So that wherever you want to go, the teams that are left are probably in and nothing's for sure, but probably going to have to negotiate with the Lakers on a sign-and-trade if they want shooter. Yeah, as far as shooter goes, I honestly think that at this point shooters, best bet if he wants to make anything close to what he was asking for originally, it's going to come via sign-and-trade and it looks like Washington, Washington. Wizards might be the most landing, likely landing spot Jim in where all the money's gone just today, so I can definitely see that. And this is what I alluded to earlier the top of the show, where my my conspiracy theory really is that they let Alex walked because of the luxury-tax but because they do a deal for buddy hield that might improve Dentistry towards Washington. You know that's a really popular Theory right now amongst Lakers fans and the media so I'm still holding out hope for that. But as far as the other phrases go like DeMar DeRozan, I really think that I, you know, I still personally can't stand thinking that big of a pay cut where he's going to take the, the taxpayer mid-level exception. I do think that the Spurs might try to work a sign-and-trade somewhere, where that is I have no idea but at the same time I think it's likely. I really doubt that he comes to the Lakers or any other team with that taxpayer mid-level and he goes there so it's wild. I I was talking about it earlier but there are a couple of free agents that are still out there that haven't been signing off. I would have gone immediately. Yeah, there's still options out there on the market that's just it. This is just starting, this isn't the Lakers we see. Oh my gosh, they added four more players. Yeah. They still have six more spots to fill. They only had five guys on contract and we don't even know what's going to happen with Alfonzo mckinnie, right? Cruise is not coming back. Okay, so what happens now? Talen horton-tucker, he's a restricted free agent. You got to figure out what happens there. There's a number of other players that are out there on the market. The labor will have a lot of work to do so by no means is this done. And by the way, I also want to throw this out there. The guys we've seen so far. Most likely, these are all veteran-minimum signings, okay? Most likely they're all for the betterment of the Lakers the big bullet. They've gotten the chamber is the taxpayer mid-level which is just under six million. I don't believe they've spent that yet, so there's still more coming there, still something else, right? But I am getting a lot of questions right now in our chat. People asking what about the age, right? So far, every player they've signed talking about a reason Dwight Wayne Ellington can't log. More. They're all over. Thirty, Dwight Howard's. What thirty six races 36 way no intent. I believe I want to say it's 33 is 30 to 4:30 to 4 for baseball game and then Russ is going to be thirty-three in a few months LeBron is 36 going on 37? Anthony Davis at what 28 is sitting there looking around, feeling like the kid on the team at this point, 50 HD, she comes back..

"So this is instant kris. Haines of yahoo is reporting that the lakers have mutual interest in danny green and dwight howard essentially trying to bring the band back together from twenty danny green and dwight howard. Danny green solves one issue. Obviously he's a great three d guy. Great three point shooter. We'll help you stretch the floor. Dwight howard the rim-protector that we could've used last year during the course of the season. What do you think of the idea. And this is not done. It's not it's not announced. it's nothing like that. Of danny green and dwight howard returning and the lakers trying to put the band back together. A liked that idea. I don't think it's a bad path especially if it's available if you're not going all over over the river through the woods trying to get guys back just because you were familiar with them but they're available and they're willing why not. I do think. Dwight howard thing comes with one. Low of caveat though dwight was great when he came back. it was fantastic. Again back to the lakers. He had an attitude adjustment. He was a better basketball player. But you know what else to wayne howard had behind him he had you feel mcgee and the two of them together made that dang work as much as one singular player. Did you had more fouls to distribute. You could sort of put you could use them as the same big man but doing different things with two different sets of fouls. I liked white. I do think he'd be good. But i think that people are going to overlook how important javagal was in those situations backup in terms of how he played the five position. What he did you know from a room protecting standpoint. Throw that out. There is an idea. So we know we've got lebron. Adm westbrook and now rob pelinka's putting pieces around them. The idea of danny green and dwight howard returning. I ax absolutely love. I love both those guys when they were playing here. I understand what you're saying about chabal mcgee. Of course now they still have marcus all under contract so he is not the rim protector that you need but dwight howard contrary to what people do had basically the exact same year for the sixers that he had for the lakers in two thousand twenty he brings enthusiasm. He clearly wants to win. He was beloved by laker fans. I think he makes a lot of sense in terms of protecting the rim and giving that defense down low which they really didn't have during the course of last year so i love this idea by the way shams toronto.
