The Democrat Party Turned Their Backs on You
"In fact, Have you also noticed how the Democrat Party has made an affirmative decision? To turn its back on all the people that used to claim to represent from Franklin Roosevelt actually earlier than that, in the turn of that Two centuries ago to now. They used to reach out. To quote unquote, the white working class to quote unquote, the blue collar White union member. But now they have decided because they are very diabolical in the way they treat human beings and the way they treat individuals and the way they group people and and try and pull together constituent groups and even create constituent groups. They've decided. They want permanent power. They noticed that since Ronald Reagan some of these white blue collar union voters, white blue collar nonunion voters Wait a minute. They're starting to vote for Republicans. Reagan won them by a large margin. Donald Trump won them by a large margin. So the Democrat party has now turned on. These people turned on many of you. You're now white supremacists your night near now, Deplorables. I'm telling you the truth. So they have Jennifer elected. Now they want open borders where they used to oppose open borders because it undermined unions, including the United Farm Workers union. Now they want open borders. Now they want as many people to come into this country as possible, preferably not white people, which is why you hear them talking the way they talk with their racist talk and the racist propaganda in our schools and so forth. Now I'm not supposed to talk about this because they try and demean people like me and silence. People like me. I'm not going anywhere. If I had to take a damn soap box and put it in my backyard, I'm not going anywhere.

But there's good news today. Today we swore in julia. Let no a new republican congresswoman. That means nancy pelosi. Today can only have two democrats voted against her bills to still pass them if three democrat goes with republicans we stop it so this is the time to put pressure but actually let's start to feeding up.

"Get people to do that and that stabilize the banking system without a federal takeover nationalization at that time progressives wanted roosevelt to nationalized banks and roosevelt. Instead used the bank rescue plan that came from the hoover treasury department it was a tremendous gamble because there was no plan. B if fat appeal for confidence and for people to return money to the banks not to keep on taking it out. If that failed there was no other plant and that would have been a complete economic meltdown. So close run thing. It was a gamble and it was in a way the ability of roseville to convey a sense of confidence to the american people. This is revision. I'm annabelle quaint. And we're looking back. At the first one hundred days of the roosevelt administration in one thousand nine hundred ninety three after his success in congress with the banking legislation roosevelt decided to keep congress sitting and proceeded to introduce more and more pieces of legislation. So why did he choose to use the legislative process rather than executive orders. He didn't need to use executive orders. That was the key he had the congressional majorities and congressional leaders of both parties who are willing to cooperate. So in that sense he could rely on. Legislation could rely on relatively speedy legislation. That didn't mean that he could simply dictate to congress and what. He was very successful at was adjusting until he accepted things that he didn't necessarily support one of the most successful new deal programs was federal. Federal deposit guarantee for deposits in banks and russo was opposed to that equaled. It was simply bailing out responsible bankers but congress insisted on rosa went along with it and it was one of the most successful and long lasting pieces of new deal legislation. There is so all sorts of things. Massive public works pending which he wasn't terribly keen on aspects of industrial planning which he had very undeveloped ideas. About all these things. It was given One thing i think that sometimes gets lost in appreciating how the american system works is that presidents can make policy through executive orders through directing the different agencies in the executive branch to carry out laws in a certain way. And we've seen joe biden do a ton of that unless two weeks but in order to really make deep structural change you do need the law and that's dependent on congress and so it was incredibly important to be able to work with congress and that is something. Fdr did so he was taking the role of kind of selling it to the public but there was also a lot going on within political parties and other political actors in in washington. Dc the the id's he brought to the legislative table with the idea for those come from because as you said he didn't have. It necessarily have a coherent policy when he came into warriors and so was he and ideas personal did he surrounded himself with advisers who were also incredibly interested in trying hold of different things. It was the ladder and he created something when he was governor of new york. A couple of years earlier called the brain trust and these were very smart individuals. He surrounded himself with. Roosevelt himself was described by one of our great jurists oliver. Wendell holmes jr. is having a second intellect or first class temperament and i think actually you could say the same thing about joe biden so he was not an intellectual. He had not finished at the top of his class at harvard. Got in there. Because everybody and his family went there yet not done particularly well law school but he was not threatened by a very bright people and surrounded himself with bright idealistic people who were also planners and they came up with a lot of ideas and he would often pit them against each other assigned to of them same task and then see which one came up with a better plan and some of it came from a woman. Francis perkins who was the first woman to serve in the cabinet in american history. She was the secretary of labor and she had worked with him in albany. The capital of new york. You know when he was governor and she was constantly throwing out ideas some of which was about wouldn't do it first so she talked to him about social security to provide a benefit for the elderly and widows minore fins and there was so much going on that roosevelt said. You've got to build support for that so it wasn't until nineteen thirty five that social security which is the most important and popular social program that we have in the united states. It wasn't for a couple of years before. Roosevelt was able to get that through. But a number of francis perkins's other ideas went through pretty quickly and their stories of for instance when they were first regulating wall street. Couple of smart young lawyers. It just stayed up all night in a hotel room and they. They wrote a bill. There was a cartoon of roosevelt saying to its secretary. Grace take a law like pick a letter you know and he didn't really know how to write legislation himself but he he would throw out ideas you know. We need get young men working in our forests doing conservation work. Get it done. And then he would stay on people to make sure that it happened. He'd light a fire under them and then they wanted to make him happy so they kept providing him with more and more legislation and he said yes to most of it so what were the key pieces of legislation because as you said in the first one hundred days was sixteen pieces of major legislation the went through congress what were the main thrust of those pieces of legislation and how coherent were they when they went through where. They changed quite dramatically by the congress. They've certainly won't terribly coherent. If there was one overriding theme it was that they needed to stop. The deflationary spiral whereby people cut prices and cut wages and took him on to their combat. So one way or another robot wanted to raise the price level in the united states. Which is one of the reasons why at various times he supported. Sort of quick fix inflationary measures but were recovery measures which involved considerable intervention in the economy through industrial codes on the one hand and through contracts with farmers on the let's those measures would necessarily very effective on aston before programs were by the industrial programs. Were not and what frequently happen was congress passed legislation which had various policy options is not clear from the way legislation passed. Which of those options is necessarily be followed was up to the administration to find out what worked was simply a question of providing relief to the people who are unemployed here on a system which has almost no safety net for the poor and unemployed and the resume administration gave money to the states administered money to the states to provide for direct economic assistance to the unemployed it also then launched a major public works program the employment programs and the major public works programs two of the long lasting impacts of that hundred days periods and then it bulletin reforms reform stock exchange reforms intense on the banks and the establishment of things like the tennessee valley authority remarkable assertion of power across state lines to develop a whole huge value across seven states to provide flood control pad things like that. So you have this combination of long-term reform programs and short term recovery programs in the same batch of those sixteen pieces of legislation. But how was he able to do that does that. Say something about his particular political skills or did congress become a different beast during the those first hundred days. I'm just wondering how he politically was able to do that. There were large democratic majorities in both the house and the senate which helped but in those days there were very few party line votes and the southern conservative democrats were much more conservative than northern liberal republicans so sometimes he would put together is majorities with the help of northern liberal republicans but at that time and well into the nineteen seventies. Many of the committees in congress were chaired by southern conservative democrats racist and he had to deal with them but he was very charming in person and he also was able to communicate over the radio to mobilize the american people and the was this sense that there was forward progress against the depression and the contrast with hoover was so striking was president. Who's introducing major piece of legislation practically every week. And you know he is first regulating wall street. I mean the creation of our securities and exchange commission didn't come until the following year but they began in a preliminary way to regulate wall street. And he he went to the public and he said look. We're moving from caveat. Emptor let the buyer. Beware to let the seller. Beware and this might not have been popular on wall street where he was considered a traitor to his class but among the american public was enormously popular and it was hard to challenge him although he was much more challenged in the first hundred days than people think after the banking bill they had to lobby push for legislation a couple times. He had to threaten veto and some of what they did. Wasn't that smart in some cases regulated. Thanks to fair the well. The national industrial recovery act had these codes for every industry what they could charge and what they could do to the point. Where strip clubs were regulated as to. How many times a night. Strippers could take off their clothes. You know and this was a pretty intrusive kind of government control of prices and ultimately of wages and it didn't really work very well economically but what it did do the national district recovery act was it created. A sense of common purpose in the united states and roosevelt was politically at that. They created a decal of a blue eagle practically every business. Quit the decal shop window and underneath. The decal was the legend. We do our part. Everybody felt like they were pulling in the same direction. Is the much debate about how successful. Those new deal programs were in terms of getting america out of its economic crisis. There's a very considerable debate. A lot of economic historians and certainly the contemporary right argue that the new deal not only failed to produce recovery. Today actually delayed recovery. The american economy recovered a slow pacing for instance western european countries because it basically priced people had jobs. That's been a very powerful argument on the right. My own feeling is that the econometric is very clear. That votes i three or four years of the new deal saw the economy grow at a very considerable right. Basically recapture everything. That is a loss between one thousand nine hundred nine nine hundred thirty three the problem walls that in one thousand nine hundred thirty six thirty seven brazil cut spending and essentially take away quite a few of those gains and they had to get back to that policy in the lead up to world war two so i think on the whole programs were the people who say that it delayed recovery basically a suit that an austerity program. I just believe that austerity package would have created a further. Probably they would lost a third of gdp's as a result of that of robin by junior do solemnly swear god congratulations. Mr president between nineteen thirty-three and today the main difference is biden isn't quite commanding the same kinds of majorities. He won office with about fifty one percent of the vote. Fdr had one with closer to fifty seven in one thousand nine hundred thirty two. He does not have the seats in the senate. He does not really have the seats in the house. The democrats control both of those chambers. But not very much and so you have a situation in which the democratic majority very bear. So you don't have any votes to spare purely majority sense but also you two things that are different. And what is the way that the legislative filibuster has evolved to make a long story short. You effectively now need sixty votes in the us senate to pass legislation and this is. You don't actually need that many. You only need fifty percent plus one to pass but the way that the legislative filibuster has evolved means that the informal norm is now that things need sixty votes to pass and that republicans can use that filibuster to block legislation. They don't like the second thing that has changed is the way that the two parties deal with legislation. They don't like there have been moments in american politics in which particularly on something like a relief bill in a pandemic and an economic collapse in which legislators who look at a bill that they don't particularly like try to actually move it closer to their preferred position in ways. That could eventually lead to compromise. This i don't want to paint the past into rosie of light you know. This often didn't succeed but you know sometimes it now. The two parties have very little incentive to cooperate with each other in congress and most republicans in congress have very limited political incentive to work with the biden administration. Their constituents for the most part don't like biden. They don't have any reason to hand him a win. They wanna win control of congress in twenty twenty two in the next midterm election to the extent that bipartisan compromises offered by the minority party in congress been really far off from the position of the democrats in terms of the numbers being offered for.

"Century ago. Franklin roosevelt pledged the new deal time of massive unemployment. on certain fear stricken by disease stricken by a virus. Fdr insisted that he would cover and prevail and he read. America could as well and he did and we can't as well. It's nice secret. President joe biden is an admira of franklin delano roosevelt and drew deal president roosevelt. Fdr led the united states through the depression. And he's new deal redefined the relationship between the citizen and the federal government in america in his first hundred days. He steed sixteen major pieces of legislation through congress while convincing the american public that they could both trust and rely on the government. Hello this is revision on radio national. I'm annabelle queens. So what could president biden loan from. Fdr's first hundred days. How did he achieve this legislative fate and could the biden administration replicated. Fdr gained the presidency in one thousand nine hundred eighty three in the midst of the worst depression. The united states had ever experienced a ten o'clock on the morning of october twenty four. The traditional bells sounded across the exchange general electric three fifteen general electric three ten. But by eleven o'clock it was apparent that this was no ordinary day. This was to be black thursday. A constricting ripple of fears spread over the startled the floor. I'm to every corner of the nation. It began with the stock market crash of nineteen twenty nine but soon spread across the whole economy. Tony badger is a former professor of american history at cambridge university. America never been there before. It was the worst economic depression in american history. Still is it had spread from a stock market collapse and then pressure on the banking system to the complete slowdown of the american economy. The toxic germs of despair were pumped to every part of the bunny. The arteries of commerce were clogged with five thousand bank failures. Forty-five thousand miles of railroad fell into bankruptcy big business that didn't fail retrenched and contracted more than half a million farms. Lost does farm. Prices fell seventy five percent. They lost a third of the gdp within four years. Unemployment ran between twenty five percent and seventy three percent of the industrial population unemployed. On a lot of the rest of the workers were working part time agriculture which constituted the third workforce was as. It wasn't australia completely devastated. People were losing homes. People were losing their farms and most notably just before as all came to power. People were losing their money in the banks which were collapsing in the winter. Nine hundred seventy two hundred thirty three. This is robert trout at our election headquarters in the newsroom. In new york the results of the nineteen thirty two election now appear to be certain. The ticket of roosevelt and garner has won a clear cut majority over the republican ticket of hoover. Curtis i'm so the united states has a new president. Franklin delano roosevelt prison who've had not believed it was the role of the federal government to intervene in a market economy and as the depression deepened and unemployment rose. Hoover became increasingly unpopular. Fdr by contrast ran on a platform of bold action. Even if he didn't spell out exactly what action. Jonathan is a journalist and the author of the defining moment. fdr's days and the triumph of hope. The most important speech that roosevelt gave in the nineteen thirty two campaign was at a college. Oglethorpe university in georgia where roosevelt spent a lot of time at the warm springs. Rehabilitative clinic where news trying to recover from polio. And he went to over thorpe and he said what we need is bold persistent experimentation cake one method and try it if it fails try another but above all try. Something that nathan in yard has been well first of all. Let me ask my family. That'd be on thing we have to be know. And so he set out from the early hours of his presidency on a course of action and action now as he described it miss famous inaugural address. That speech is most remembered by history for the line. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself and that was a nice bit of psychological Spirit boosting but it really was kind of inspired nonsense. Because if you are hungry if you don't know where you're going to sleep if no one in your family has a job and unemployment was twenty five percent but because women were counted as fifty percent. That's not fear itself that you're fearing. That's something real. And so the critical lines in the speech in terms of indicating what he was going to do with that he used that word action five times and he said that he would put the country on a wartime footing. If congress didn't respond to his proposals. Which congress did one of the things that really marked the new deal. What is this idea. Experimentation julia's ari associate professor of political science at marquette university. Once he was asked about his political philosophy here responded and said he was a christian and a democrat but he wasn't especially when to any ideology he tried different things and engage in a lot of experimentation to figure out what sort of fixes worked what he did when he ran for president was he talked about the forgotten man. He talked about kind of rethinking whether the economy worked for people in this carried into his rhetoric once he was president really thinking about about what democracy could be offering people a new deal that that wasn't just about the economy it was about really rethinking kind of what people in a democratic society owed to each other and how we move forward in an industrial capitalist economy. That's also a democratic political system. The day before roosevelt took office the american banking system all but collapsed. The banking crisis originated in the state of michigan and the governor of michigan had to close to banks there and then the disease of bank closing started to spread and there were these terrible bank runs. You can remember seeing pictures of them in old movies where you know people lineup desperate to get their last money out of the bank and then made them failed to do so or they get some out stuff it under their mattress. It had literally collapsed in the sense of new york and illinois has closed their banks which essentially meant the whole banking system was closed on the day that he took office and so he fully closed the bank declared and national bank holiday and coal congress into special session to provide measures to reopen banks. He didn't have any terribly. Click plans about how he plans to do that. But that will officials in the treasury holdovers from the previous administration who were desperately hard to provide the source of legislation the mechanisms whereby they could.
"franklin d roosevelt" Discussed on This Day in History Class
"The day was february nineteenth. Nineteen forty two after the japanese bombed pearl harbor a couple of months earlier. The citizens and government of the united states became frantic. They were increasingly distrustful of the mini japanese immigrants in citizens in the country believing they couldn't be trusted to remain loyal to the us over japan. In many people's minds people of japanese descent were threat to national safety and security as a result president. Franklin delano roosevelt signed executive order. Ninety sixty six. Arthur is the secretary of war military commanders to set up military zones that anybody to be evacuated from the executive order was framed as a measure necessary to protect national security during wartime since the country was now vulnerable to attack. But what the order actually did was take advantage of the public's escalating fears of japanese americans involvement in the war and use it to put them in concentration camps. The passing of executive order ninety sixty six was largely precipitated by the bombing of pearl harbor but resentment of foreign nationals japanese immigrants in particular had already been growing steadily by the time. Fdr signed executive order before the nineteenth century. Japan didn't want much to do with europe or its colonies but by the eighteen hundreds japan had begun trading with the united states and japanese. People were immigrating to the us and other places as temporary laborers at the same time. The us was barring other asian nationals from entering the country the chinese exclusion act passed in eighteen eighty two banned immigration from china to the us and prohibited chinese people in the us from becoming citizens the law partly had to do with the high unemployment and low wages in the us which were blamed on chinese laborers but it also had to do with prejudices white americans had against chinese people. All of this is to say that there was a precedent for immigration from asia. By the time the us government began placing limits on the number of japanese people that could come to the us and in nineteen twenty four. The government passed the johnson. Reed act which set immigration quotas and effectively cut off the stream of japanese people immigrating to the states. People who moved to the us from japan could it become citizens although children born to japanese people in the us received birthright citizenship. Even so most of the japanese people who moved to the us settled on the west coast or in hawaii building up their own communities with their own schools and businesses and a lot of these communities. Were doing well. But when the japanese bombed pearl harbor in nineteen forty one in the hopes of destroying us military forces in the pacific. The us was compelled to enter world war two after years of try to avoid being hands on in the conflict. At first there were appeals for people to remain calm but soon enough the government began targeting thousands of foreign nationals who it believed to be a threat. Many of the people who the government considered enemy aliens had done. Nothing that would legitimately earned him the label of enemy regardless they were still sent to camps jails and prisons under suspicions of espionage sabotage and any other activities that could aid to pay in the war and as more people were locked up as the media amplified false reports of japanese threats and as actual japanese military threats posed. The public grew more fearful of japanese people
Biden signs executive orders addressing the economy
"Biden has turned to executive orders in his first days of office says he looks to address the economic crisis brought on by the pandemic. He's also pursuing a massive coronavirus aid bill Can Walsh White House and political analyst for U. S. News and World Report joined w. T. O. P S John Aaron to break down Biden's first few days in office and some of the past presidents he resembles well particular FDR going back a long way to 1933 when he first became president. He had a huge depression to deal with the worst economic calamity we've ever had, and his philosophy was similar to what Biden seems to be doing action action action. The country wanted the president to do something to act boldly. And you seeing that with President Biden again today with executive orders. They're going to continue indefinitely pushing this $1.9 trillion stimulus bill moving to try many different things to get the economy corrected, but mostly to get the coronavirus under control and to get the vaccines out. That's his first priority right now. And probably should be given how difficult that issue is for people to deal with very quickly on Lyndon Johnson. Of course, he took over after President Kennedy was assassinated. He also wanted to show action himself, particularly in areas of diversity and racial justice with writing is also doing so. I would say those two presidents come to mind and you see a lot of echoes in what Biden is doing when you compare them to Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson. The president, of course pitches himself is a compromise or experienced in the Senate. But we're hearing that some Republicans say there's no way they're gonna go for some of the elements and at one point trillion $1.9 trillion.8 bills. So where does this go? I think the thing we have to remember here, of course, is that this is vital opening bid in his attempt to get a lot of this legislation through. He's been around a long time. 36 years in the Senate years as vice president, he is known as a guy who knows how the Congress works. And so I think we have to realize that this is his the start of the neck. Negotiations started the deal making there are not good signs from the Republicans that they'll go along with him. There's a lot of pushback of the same time he's getting the sense from the left on his in his party to push further in government activism, and so on, So it is a difficult line. He's walking here, but I think That there's the potential particularly initially here that he will come to some kind of a compromise. It'll be difficult, but what he's got out there now is sort of the whistle ist. I think when he gets to the real bargaining, I think he's gonna have to borrow back off from a lot of that. But I think it's possible
Donald Trump's disregard for our transition rituals threatens democracy
"Have you noticed. This is not normal. The president openly trying to say only the votes for him should count talking about sailing election. No legal path to succeed. We've been reporting on how those michigan republicans were welcomed at the white house after being shamed in their own home state for what they were doing. And donald trump is also taking petty moves that basically delay or mess with aspects of the transition. They won't mess with the transfer of power. All of this. We want to show tonight with. The evidence is a radical break from a longstanding. Bipartisan approach to the peaceful transfer of power in america that look forward to talking to the president so honored that he was attended with hospitality to me. And my wife. Yesterday didn't need to do this. And i am most grateful that He would do so good morning last night. I had a warm conversation with president. Elect barack obama. I congratulated him and senator biden on their impressive. Victory told the president-elect he can count on complete cooperation for my administration as he makes the transition to the white house. My number one priority. In the coming two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures dental is successful. We turned presidential historian. Michael beschloss what contrast you see from there to now well once again are a donald trump tonight as a category of his own. Go all the way back to john adams who lost to the guy who was at that time as you know his political enemy. Thomas jefferson. Adams was angry about being defeated by jefferson. And he didn't hang around for the inauguration that tradition adopted established yet so adams got an a stage coach and went back to massachusetts before jefferson was born in but it began this tradition. That even when you have an incumbent president who is angry at the guy who beat him for reelection. Herbert hoover in one thousand nine hundred ninety three and franklin roosevelt over to the white house to talk about how they should transfer power even when they rolled up to the capital roosevelt and hoover sat in the back of an open car. They shared a lap robe. If you could believe it didn't talk much. But that's a tradition. And as you say the tradition is running alongside both the rules constitutional requirements and the norms that much abuse a framework or term in the last four years That provide a buffer a provide a context all this. We just showed the outgoing president's michael stays with us. We want to show michael. And our viewers the other cases where we have seen the candidates as mentioned who lost just conceding with some eye on their place in history john mccain making what for him was a painful concession to barack obama in two thousand and eight hillary clinton in that loss that shocked so many including many in the republican party. She got up the next morning and gave that speech pledging cooperation to president-elect trump and sixteen we've seen presidents who lost reelection like trump did face the music the people of the united states that made the choice and of course. I accept that decision. But i have to admit not with the same enthusiasm that i accepted the decision for years ago. People have spoken. And we respect the majesty of the democratic system. I just called governor clinton over in little rock and offered my congratulations. he did run a strong campaign. I wish him well in the white house. You know michael you deal with facts and evidence you have a rigorous process between where you start and publishing one of your history books. How do you measure class. Because what i see there is something. That's hard to prove. But i feel it inside which is across ideology in parties. We've just seen many different presidents showing a type of class or even grace that is absent right now at the white house. We're going to ari. I've got two sons who are now in their twenties but they used to play a little league and every time they played a game even if they lost they would shake hands with the winning team and say good game. That was assumed this. That's that's american. What is not. American is to claim when you didn't win to be a poor loser you try to be out of keeping with the tradition of all those guys you just showed even richard nixon who is not thought of in history as a particularly gracious winner. Nineteen sixty gets beaten by john kennedy. He was very angry about it and it was very sad about it but he goes out and tells us supporters in los angeles in america. Once a decision is made we unite behind the candidate who was elected that was even before the final results were. Yeah that's great a great example. You're given off as we say off the top of the dome michael We have one more for you. And that is al gore. Who did have this tight legal challenge. Everyone remembers frustrating. For both sides in the run up to it and then of course frustrating for the person losing so narrowly having won more votes overall total across america. Al gore take a look now the. Us supreme court has spoken. Let there be no doubt while. I strongly disagree with the court's decision. I accept it. I accept the finality of this outcome. Which will be ratified next monday. In the electoral college and tonight for the sake of our unity as a people and strength of our democracy. I offer my concession. If i may be a little optimistic here at the end of the week michael ask you to guide us. What would you as someone who cares deeply about america. What would you tell citizens both parties neither party whatever. What is incumbent upon the rest of us to do if we never get that concession from this president. What do we do from here together. We just say the. Donald trump is a gross aberration. Get him out out the door. The door doesn't hit him on the way out on the twentieth of january and say we demand our leaders that they do. What all those other candidates that you show tonight did show some graciousness and understand that democracy is more important. Listen to what al gore said. He didn't say. I agree with the supreme court decision in bush v gore. He says for the sake of our democracy. I offer my concession. Most canada's most presidents love democracy want to unite the country. Donald trump is a gross aberration and exception to that tradition. Soon he'll be gone. Michael beschloss gets the word on that. Thank you sir.
Trump, Biden make final campaign push with less than a week before Election Day
"Time next week, we'll be sorting through what we know of results. Amazing. We're getting close will be sorting through a lot. So in these final days, we do the itineraries. Tell us anything about the race. Tell us a lot. They show who's on offense. Who's on defense President Trump was in Nebraska yesterday, fighting for the one electoral vote that the Omaha area congressional District Awards polls show Biden up there. Even as Trump is expected to win the state as a whole. The president is making repeated trips to the states that put him in the White House, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, He needs to hold them to win a second term. And beyond that he's just going everywhere. Arizona today trying to put a dent in the steady national lead that Biden has built, and at the same time, Biden went to Georgia yesterday. That's a place Democrats have not won since 1992. But they're getting closer and closer in recent elections, and early voting trends indicate a lot of younger first time voters are showing up and Democrats feel like that could be the key to winning. Then, later this week, Biden goes to Iowa. His running mate, Kamala Harris, is going to Texas. And all of this underscores thie different routes to 270 electoral votes that Biden has right now. Even though his campaign is certainly making sure to keep coming back to Pennsylvania and those other key states. They don't want to repeat 2016 and neglect those places, right? Well, that's where the candidates are. What are they saying? What's the message in these final days? I've been messaging has really been focused on leadership of using the perch of the White House to be more inclusive and unifying. Hey, went to warm Springs, Georgia yesterday. That's a place that Franklin Roosevelt spent so much time trying to recover from polio and then later on in life. I didn't give a speech there, drawing in Roosevelt and amplifying this message of resilience and hope. He also continued to criticize President Trump's lack of leadership confronting the pandemic here. He was later in the day in Atlanta. Or the 225,000 dead Americans because of covert 19. 7800 right here in Georgia. Millions of people are out of work on the edge. I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel of Donald Trump has given up And, by contrast, here's President Trump in Omaha last night, we will get rid of this whole thing. We will get rid of this virus. It'll be very you watch. It's going to happen very quickly, and we're goingto have our country back and the whole world is going to be coming back. President. Trump, of course, was hospitalized than recovered. And since then he's double down this message that the virus is not so bad, but that's not stacking up against the reality of record numbers of cases in recent days. Especially in places like the Midwest where where President trump wass and hospitalizations air up as well? Scott. What one issue That's come up a lot recently, especially Pennsylvania's fracking. I know it's an issue you actually covered in a former life. Can you talk us through this issue and what what it's about? Yeah. President Trump has really been seizing on comments that Biden made in the last debate that he wants to phase out fossil fuels like oil and gas. Biden does want to limit future permits for fracking on federal land, but not ban it as a whole. The president thinks this is something that can really hurt barging in Pennsylvania. I think there's a lot of reasons why it might not be the powerful argument that the president thinks he is just to take through them quickly. The industry slowed down a lot in recent years from its peak in Pennsylvania. There's a lot of wind and solar activity and in booming business there and maybe most importantly, it's always been controversial in Pennsylvania because of environmental concerns, and that's especially the case in the eastern part of the state. Where there's a lot of votes.
"franklin d roosevelt" Discussed on News Radio 920 AM
"Biden is making a late push to paint Georgia blue. One week before the election. Joining us now is Rachel Sutherland from Fox News and Georgia is firmly in place, Rachel Absolutely Southern states are in play, not only Georgia, but you gotta look at Texas well, but Georgia the former vice president was there outside Atlanta yesterday, holding a drive in style type of event. He really was talking about the Franklin D. Roosevelt and talking about a comment into being defeating the Corona virus. The polling there is actually tight, which does say something. About this the last time about a presidential Democratic presidential candidate. One Georgia was back in 1992 that was Bill Clinton. But pulling in Georgia showing Biden and Trump and really a statistical dead heat. That has been reliably red since 1972 with the exception of Bill Clinton, as you have mentioned it, of course, the native son Jimmy Jimmy Carter, in 1976. And also in 80 16 electoral votes, So there's a lot up for grabs there. There are there's a lot of focus also of the state of Florida, my as well as you could get Pennsylvania in election battles brewing out of Sunday states, including Pennsylvania regarding the deadline for counting mail in ballots. There's also disputes in North Carolina of that kind in Wisconsin. So these are all states to keep an eye on Arizona. President Trump is heading there today. Not only to help his own campaign, but Republican Martha Nick Sally is in danger. Losing your Senate seat to the Democrat. Former astronaut Mark Kelly. Okay, Rachel Southern them from Fox News, Thanks for the update. 16 electoral votes, and it's looked at as a tourist a toss up right now. George is a very interesting state. You know, because from 18 68 through 1960. That state was about his blue as you can be when it comes to conservative Democrats, however, Dad went red in 1964 in response to a lot of unhappiness over the Civil Rights Act, which was effectively exploited by the Republicans and attack that called the Southern strategy If you check your history books In fact, in 1968, Georgia, voted for independent George Wallace in election that mark the last time that was the last time a third party candidate received any electoral votes. 1968, a Georgia man. Let's stick with that. Gust. Data who's gone missing is being sought by the FBI. But not because he might be a victim. Here's Fox is Evan Brown with that story. The FBI in Atlanta is looking for a 37 year old missing man who they say is actually a criminal. Christopher W. Burns worked as a financial advisor, but the feds now say they have a warrant to arrest him. Burns was last seen in late September, leaving his Atlanta home when he was supposed to turn over business documents to the Securities and Exchange Commission, all having to do with finance firms he ran under the name investors. The FBI says he defrauded clients of hundreds of thousands of dollars. His car was found abandoned in the Atlanta suburb of Dunwoody. Cashier checks worth nearly 80 grand were found inside.

"To go until Election Day, and Democrat Joe Biden spent the day in a traditionally a red state. The last time a Democrat won the presidential contest in Georgia with 1992. But former vice President Joe Biden believes he and a pair of Senate candidates conflict that trend because something's happening here in Georgia and across America. A drive up rally in Atlanta, Biden continued his criticism of President Trump's Corona virus response, accusing the administration of waving the white flag. He says going to go away. We're learning to live with it. I told him we're not learning living. You're asking people have learned to die with it. At an earlier of it. In Warm Springs, Georgia, Biden decided that town's former resident President Franklin Roosevelt, is a model to unite the country.

Well kid, there were a lot of subtleties and that's what real Ruckus it's all about separating the chaff from the wheat, but the obvious messages will be rehashed over and over the fowl obvious things that were said by Mister Trump and mr. Biden you can catch on your podcast and mass media and and wherever you take in your news, but what I'm going to do is I'm gonna forget about my fact-checkers and forget about my constitutional historical professors and I'm going to talk about one key message. Okay, r a little trepidation. What would that message be that message is vote and I'm going to cover a lot of interesting territory on this kit. All right. We'll take it away Ray. Okay with all and I've just said talking to mr. Crum and the back of your head. The question comes out. Why vote now, this was something that was it was his life on by both the president and the vice president. Mr. Trump and mr. Biden. So I I asked a question. Why vote most of us walk around in a naively Elevate wage state of impunity. No one is going to forcibly tell us what to do or limit where we can go. Nobody is going to kick down our door or drain our bank account. But this moment in time there is a raised awareness of civil rights now hang in with me on this because I'm bringing it all to him ahead to a point. This might be illustrated by peaceful protest wage. The civil rights that is these folks would declare their First Amendment right of freedom of speech now, if you're pro-nra, then you might cite the Second Amendment of the Constitution the right page. To bear arms these and many other protections come from a piece of paper the Constitution and yet if not enforce the Constitution becomes meaningless Le meaningless still may I ask you to question? Why vote if we allow the provisions of the Constitution to be ignored just once and only a single part because we agree with the ideology and other people in charge at any given moment in time, then you might as well start a racing aspects of the Constitution that you and they don't agree with thus rendering our constitutional democracy damaged again, I ask why vote a damaged and ignored Constitution like a bad case of poison oak may seem superficial at first but not burn that poison oak and inhale the smoke what was once superficial is now internal and damaging your lungs the problem, is that a damaged Constitution like damaged lungs Mekong. Around for a long time without a quick fix the question why vote now evolves into who do you vote for? Who do I put in a position of power? Well Article 2 of The Constitution is impossibly vague about the president's Powers. But if we were to look back over the past one hundred years there would be no denying an increase in what are called executive powers powers that bypass Congress you would see that presidents during that hundred year.

That means somebody could kick in your wage. Or somebody could drain your bank account. Someone could tell you when and where you can go the fourth President of the United States. I was James Madison said factions formed public opinion spreads quickly particularly on issues that evoke ideology and passion people become polarized and look for opinions that mirror existing beliefs and isn't that where we are now as a country as people forming ideology based on passion and political opinions that mirror existing beliefs, so I say vote and vote carefully because a person you put in power maybe the first nail in the coffin of our constitutional democracy think about it off and remember question conventional wisdom, and don't believe everything you think.

An attempted Coup in the US
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries either host Kit Chrome today the story of a coup against one of the presidents of the United States today's Podcast is the result of myth and mystery coming together to form a truth, a truth confirmed by data revealed by both the Freedom of Information Act an archive letters regarding lawsuits against the Bush family made public in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, eight. This podcast is without political bias and exists only to. demystify myth and mystery whenever possible in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, three, a group of Americans wealthiest businessman powerbrokers including the grandfather of George W Bush Prescott Bush plan to stage a coup against then President Franklin Roosevelt to change the regime one year later retired Marine Corps. Major General smedley Butler revealed applaud the wait Prescott Sheldon Bush was an American banker and politician Wall Street executive partner the Brown brothers and a US senator he was the Father President. George H. W Bush in the grandfather to President George W Bush he attended Yale and was a member of the skull and bones. Prescott Bush seems larger than life and he was a business plot in nineteen thirty three referred to as the white. House. Coup was led in part by Prescott. Bush, the purpose of the alleged conspiracy was to replace the Roosevelt Administration with a fascist dictatorship, a coalition of many influential billionaires and powerbrokers led by Prescott Bush. Plan the coup the reason behind this attempt was the policies of the Roosevelt Administration towards the business world the owners of some of the biggest corporations like General Motors. Goodyear Chase Bank and hines thought the government would destroy private enterprise. Thus, they wanted to create a business friendly zine so that they could preserve their power. However, the coup plan came to light when smedley Butler a retired burning corps major general alerted authorities in Washington DC of the conspiracy. According to his statement. So mysterious bankers and businessmen approached him and asked him to command an army of veterans who fought in World War one in order to stage a coup and overthrow the democratically elected President Franklin Delano Roosevelt Butler was a popular military figure then, and he also had influence over the veterans. That's why they chose him a committee investigated the allegations and Declared that some Wall Street elites were involved in the conspiracy but nobody was charged go figure. Then there was Prescott involvement with the Brown brothers the financial architects of Nazism the documents from the National Archives showed that the bushes and Brown brothers shipped valuable US assets including gold coal steel at US Treasury war bonds to their foreign clients overseas as Hitler geared up for his.

The great broadband divide: Living without high-speed internet access
"Austin, Texas, So many kids weren't online last semester, but the school system had to print and male 40,000 homework packets a week. They resorted to fill in school buses with portable WiFi hot spots and parking them near apartment complexes where a lot of people have no broadband service. Now, you might say Austin shining star of high Tech American cities. According to geese own Austin illustrates the biggest broadband problem of all the vast majority of Americans who don't have broadband Internet access is because they can't afford it because the price is too high. And sure enough, the U. S. Has the third most expensive broadband Internet in the developed world. Mostly because there's not much competition. It's just a money problem and not a problem of putting wires in the ground. We should be complaining about both the lack of actual network infrastructure. In many places, but also the cost. The thing is, we fix problems like this before. In 1930 for only 11% of rural Americans had electricity. President Franklin Roosevelt created the rural Electrification Administration. New lines going up almost everywhere. At the rate of 500 miles a day, and within 20 years, 90% of those homes had cheap, reliable electricity. Now. Over the years, the government has come up with a basket of programs designed to help with Internet affordability and accessibility. Unfortunately, sewn says they haven't always worked as designed. The FCC has now for well over a decade paid out tens of billions of dollars to rule broadband companies to build Internet access. In places where there isn't any And the fact of the matter is is that the government has gotten a very, very poor return on its investment. This FCC and I'll even say you know, the FCC that I work for has not done a very good job of demanding that these companies tell us what they've actually built with the money they've gotten. This is not making the FCC looked too good. I don't think it's incompetence. I think part of it is resource is you know the the FCC staff has shrunk enormously. In the last decade or so, where to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the FCC chairman a Jeep. I declined our request for an interview. But in a written response, the FCC says We ensure efficient cost effective spending on subsidies for rural broadband. Earlier this year, Congress passed a law requiring the FCC to improve the way it measures Internet access. But the FCC says that nothing will happen unless Congress also pays for it. The FCC simply does not have the $65 million we need to start the process and implement that law through its first year. Meanwhile, the agency is promoting new technologies like five g, cellular and low earth orbit satellites that might address our broadband problems someday. But for now, most seem to agree on one thing. Especially these days, the Internet should be considered a necessity.
Absent From Stimulus Packages: Overhauling Energy, Climate Programs
"Some countries are literally printing money to rescue their economies from the ravages of covid nineteen. The UN and some others argue that some of that money should be spent to fight climate change. The European Union has a plan to do that. The US so far does not despite the fact that this country has a tradition of overhauling our energy sector to promote economic recovery. Here's NPR's Jeff Brady. Consider President Franklin. Roosevelt's new deal a century ago, electricity may not come to mind, but a big element was building massive hydroelectric dams on the Columbia River then the government paid woody Guthrie to write songs about. Colonial. Power returning our. Law. The legacy of those dams is mixed. They forever changed the environment, but they also brought electricity to rural America during the Nineteen Twenties and Nineteen Thirties about ninety percent of the US. Farms had no electricity. Ted Case is executive director of the Oregon. Rural Electric Cooperative Association his Co. up. Members exist because the new deal brought utility, Poles and power lines down many miles of dusty Rhodes and connected homes to the grid that day was the most incredible day for a lot of families when they finally got to throw. Throw that kerosene lantern out the window which many people did decades later? President Obama was sworn into office amid an economic downturn. His stimulus plan included ninety billion dollars that helped reshape the US energy landscape. It's an investment that will double the amount of renewable energy produced over the next three years solar and wind grew quickly, and now the cheapest source of electricity in some places, but hundreds of thousands of renewable energy jobs have been lost. Scientists say carbon emissions must be reduced dramatically to avoid the worst effects of. Of Climate Change, that requires significant changes at a time. The country already is spending a lot of money about three trillion dollars on relief packages so far Julian brave noise cat is with the group data for progress. It is irresponsible from like a very basic good government perspective to not have any of that money. Go to Queen Energy and fighting climate change noise cat says money should be spent creating jobs to build retrofit houses install rooftop, solar and deploy electric vehicles. Heather reams also is concerned about climate change, but. But her politics are more conservative and market focused. If we're talking about if you'RE GONNA put taxpayer money someplace, put it where you're going to get a good return, and that is in clean energy. Reams heads citizens for responsible energy solutions. She says there are bills. In Congress. That could become stimulus programs even with an administration that shows little interest in climate change they do recognize the economic value that clean energy brings the jobs that brings particularly to a lot of red states, so I think the business certainty. Trump's if you will any kind of political challenges, another idea has the support of some conservatives and big oil companies taxing carbon dioxide emissions I. Think it's fair to say that carbon taxes are economists favorite way of addressing climate change Yona. Marinescu is an economist at the University of Pennsylvania, but she says this would be a bad time to levy new taxes. She suggest the government invest lots of money in clean energy upfront, and then Levy carbon tax to pay for it when the economy recovers, it's one idea among many the point. Is that climate? Climate Change arguably is the biggest problem humans face now and fixing. It requires sweeping solutions at a time. The US's spending lots of money. It's a sad time, but also an opportunity to do investments that perhaps we didn't have the Mo-jo to get our act together and do before. Sometimes it takes a good crisis to finally move in a whole new direction just like the new deal. Here's what's different. Though after the Great Depression and the two thousand eight recession, the country had presidents who believed in fixing the big energy problems of
Is Shangri-La A Real Place?
"James Hilton was simply dreaming of a place that humans have yearned for since they I learned to yearn a heaven of sorts a Paradise Utopia Xanadu the garden of Eden Shambala Hilton a popular writer in the first half of the twentieth century named his Happy Place Shangrila and he made at wondrous in spiritual talking it high into the mountains in northwest Tibet. It was setting of his nineteen thirty three adventure. Novel lost horizon which instantly became a worldwide bestseller. It was also made into a major Hollywood film. The legendary Frank CAPRA directed and Ronald Colman Jane Wyatt starred in Nineteen thirty seven from the moment lost horizon hit bookstore shelves Shangri la became synonymous with utopia back. Then it was an ideal a place to escape to during a time when the real world had just been through a global war in the Great Depression since then the simple idea of the place has sparked countless trips. Tibet journeys of faith and perseverance of hope and distant. Promise of supposed enlightenment and sometimes disappointment. It's kind of an amazing phenomenon considering that the place doesn't exist and it never has except for ten years or so when what's now called Camp David. The presidential retreat was founded under the name Shangrila by then President Franklin Roosevelt in nineteen forty two. Or at least that was the only time it's existed until recently but let's start at the beginning. Hilton reportedly did most of the research for his novel in the British Museum Library not far from his home in the northeastern part of London. He never actually visited Tibet. Instead he took inspiration for Shangri la from another utopian dream a place known for centuries as Shala we spoke with Ed Birnbaum who lectures on comparative religion mythology and wrote the way to Shambala in nineteen eighty. He said there was one. Sort of very very garbled version of the Shambala myth that Hilton Red and one of the Catholic explorers writings. But it wasn't an all clear. It was the sort of universal theme and at that time. Tibet was pretty much unexplored. So if you're going to look for hidden utopia that was an ideal place to do it. Shala is a Tibetan Buddhist legend about a Utopian Paradise far in the Northern Mountains of Asia. It said to be a spiritual place where people of all religions and backgrounds live together in harmony and also said to be the place from which when Warren Evil Engulf the rest of the world. A leader will emerge to defeat the forces of chaos and usher in a new age of peace and happiness. Shambala grows out of the Buddhist Teaching College Chakra or the wheel of time which states that the center of the universe. Mount Meru sometimes called Mount Subaru. Set to be well. North of Tibet. Birnbaum said people sort of looked at Tibet as this mysterious Utopian kind of place and the Tibetans themselves looked even farther north for that. Utopia Shambala if Hilton who died in nineteen fifty. Four was indeed modeling Shangri la after the Buddhist teachings of Shambala. It might paint him to learn what's happened to his imaginary wonderland because it's become real but not an particularly Buddhist way in two thousand one the Chinese government which is controlled. Tibet since late nineteen fifties changed the name of Zhongdian County to Shangri la for simple purpose to cash in on tourist dollars. Many areas and China had been vying for the right to change their names. Shangri la and took nearly a decade to decide on a winner. Zhongdian one out in. What the Guardian in two thousand six called one of the most day. She's rebranding exercises in history. Today the larger area Shangrila boasts say Shangrila resort a Hilton Garden Inn Shangrila and airport with daily flights to Beijing Shanghai and Lhasa. The capital of China's Tibet Autonomous Region in the heart of what Westerners now as Tibet visitors can tour the largest Betton Buddhist monastery in Yunan province. And when they're done they can cough down. Abreu at the Shangri la beer bar tagline beer made in heaven Tibet and the newly named Shangri la a draw for reasons other than tourist traps. Of course Tibet is known. After all is the roof of the world it shares the highest peak in the World Mount Everest with neighboring Nepal. Though that's a long way from Shangri La. The area's natural beauty is breathtaking. Which makes it a destination for outdoor levers. That's especially popular with Chinese tourists. It's harder for Westerners to secure visas to get there. But is this the Shangri La that James Hilton envisioned? Is What modern travelers expect. That it seems is probably up to the pilgrim. Birnbaum said there are different ways of going to Shambala to me what I found most interesting was the symbolism of it sort of reflects an inner journey
Hope and Worry Mingle as Countries Relax Coronavirus Lockdowns
"Again just to repeat I had to run through some things pretty quickly Germany is re opening all of its shops and allowing soccer Italy Spain and France have eased their lock downs after the hot spots in those countries have now seen a record low number of coronavirus cases something that my my point is that lockdowns are being lifted all over the world not just here in the in the United States and there is mounting pressure to keep states close to keep the lockdown on and in place in the United States primarily in Democrat run states and we all know what the reason for this is there is an ongoing effort to **** the American economic recovery if you want to call it that whatever the renewed economic activity is and it's it's breathtaking to behold it really has a people talk about we got across the aisle we gotta show people that we can work together we gotta have demonstrated that we can make sure the government can work and we we can't even unified on a pandemic we're not it does not actually does surprise me at all because I know Eric and laughed I know the backwards and forwards I know today's Democrat party and I and I know what their political objectives are I'm just telling you they don't care capitalism is taking a hit that's in fact there's some of the some things happening in this in this situation that they have been secretly hoping would happen some day somehow main socialist by design don't like capitalism they've been looking for ways to damage and destroy it this thing is come along it's a godsend to many people on the left and so your your your if you if you have people who consider the United States is the problem in the world because the United States is too big it's too big a superpower it's too big economically it's just not fair something like this comes along and can cut the United States down to size twenty people in this country most of the Democrat party who are all for it I don't believe me I don't but it it it may be something you don't want to just take a look at where states are shut down I will continue to be shut down where governors don't want to open them up ask what party they're in and ask what could the reasons for this continued lockdown and the continued destruction of people's economic fortunes and watch what could that be about what purpose does it serve because believe me it serves a purpose keeping a state walk down keeping people in financial ruin with no opportunity to go back to work it does serve a particular political objective and that objective of course beating Donald Trump in November it sounds simplistic to some of you but it is the case I was reading I mentioned earlier in the program you can guardian is a column here my somebody named Francine prose I never heard of her I don't even know she's a real person is a sort of name or whatever but the piece is entitled what Americans ever forgive trump for his heart was lack of compassion the some heavy is while the nation grieves the US president has spent less than five minutes expressing compassion for those who are suffering we can't help thinking how much less worried we would be if a humane competent well informed adult was making the decisions that affect us all now that intrigues me because I want to ask you just just point blank take everything that's happening and leave it in place everything that has happened everything that is happening and what you think the immediate future all the words do you think Major League Baseball will play this season do you think the NFL will kick off with fans in the stands whatever you think yes fine if you think you know whatever whatever you think of the current circumstances would you be thinking differently would you be less worried if somebody we're in the White House expressing compassion for people who are stuck when it change your attitude about any of this what are you against compassion all I'm not against conventional put words in my mouth I'm asking what good does it do in the context of what we're talking about here what by the way that what Americans ever forgive trump for his heart was lack of compassion where has it been established that is heartless so there's a there's a gigantic presumption this whole thing off which is companies are heartless SOB about Americans know it and trump needs to get their forgiveness quick because trump is making this worse trump is making those wars because he doesn't have any compassion for the people suffering the nation is grieving now what is trump doing what do you define compassion a whole bunch of different ways but can optimism being compassion I know that trump refuses they get caught up in pessimism he doesn't like it he doesn't want to be identified with it he want he doesn't he doesn't want to be involved in things that create panic so trump well often times be optimistic because he thinks that's far more productive and far more helpful for people then just sit there and wring his hands together and talk about how sandy is because there are certain things that you just assume nobody is happy with the number of people who have died here nobody is happy with the number of people are sick should you have to save that for people to understand that about you what we give you an example this happened when I was out you remember the brouhaha that erupted after trump at one of the briefings talked about the possibility of injecting Clorox or whatever was you remember the outrage over this you remember people talking about how dumb and stupid all my god how embarrassing trump actually all dirty looked at the score of queen and he's asking her to confirm they could someday shook people up with Marshall it's dangerous this guy is an absolute these stupid people were saying now what happened what happened is the trump was briefed on some news that was announced who who's the guy who was the what department wasn't wasn't FEMA somebody made an announcement at that briefing that they had discovered the virus doesn't do well in high temperatures it doesn't do well on services it lasts thirty seconds with disinfectant Clorox whatever it was well trump had been briefed on all that a mere couple of minutes before the briefing and start I don't believe Donald Trump actually thinks or thought or to shoot anybody up what Y. sol rocks what Donald Trump is is I can do what kind of person and if he here is that this virus is wiped out in thirty seconds with exposure to whatever it was Clorox then his mind is going okay so how do we apply that and he thinks out loud how do we apply that if that if that kills it then how do we apply that to people who have a deep thanks out loud he's not literally thinking of shooting people up with one of these disinfectants are and yet the assumption was that he was thinking that the assumption was that he saw store but any such a fool that he literally want to go grab a patient and get a syringe and put some parts in there and have doctor works should the person up in sap the virus he's not and yet everybody reacted to it as though he is that stupid the is that heart was that he is that I have encountered that side of Donald Trump won the day all of the state of the union and which Catherine I were his gas and I got the presidential medal of freedom you would not believe what all had to happen for me to get to Washington that day and none of it what happened were it not for him making it happen things that you would say are impossible to get done in two hours or three cannot do he did it all he's just he's a can do kind of person he doesn't have no aunt or something negative in his it is make up so we goes about these briefings yeah the briefer was the homeland security undersecretary for science in fact the bill Ryan was built brand came out told everybody what happened to the virus in high humidity and high temperatures and certain kinds of disinfectants and so forth all Donald Trump as a problem solver and he likes to encourage people he likes to inspire people he likes to get people moving and he does think things that a lot of people that can't be done candy any doesn't just sit there one second if he's dealing with somebody who thinks something can't be done he's going to try to tell it can the mistake here was to do this impromptu ad libbing in front of cameras but I guarantee you that had the cameras not been there had trouble learn this so he would have been asking the boys are some way we can apply this is there some way we can take what you've just learned here and apply it to the way we're treating people with the virus he doesnt mean shut him up with this impact of poison is there something to learn here whether we actually this was just so over the top you remember trump any of trump's foolish trump this trump slap it was so bad that trump himself his staff got you got to go out to you got to fix this so I went out there the next day in trump said I was being sarcastic I was being sarcastic with the media I was asking a sarcastic wit that's obviously not what he was doing hi I wish I had been in the meeting to formulate the strategy the procedure here for dealing with with this because believe me it could have been converted into a total positive the reason I bring all this up is because it we have a piece here in the UK guard it will Americans ever forgive trump for his heart was lacking the last thing Donald Trump is as heartless and the last thing he has none of his compassion it is the exact opposite Donald Trump believes everybody's capable of greatness he believes it everybody's capable of accomplishing things he doesn't believe in sitting around and rubbing people's shoulders and saying it's okay you suck you're never going to amount to anything but I'll make you feel better about it he doesn't believe in that inspiring people getting the most out of people particularly people work for him particularly for people that can't do the things that he needs done it is that he can't do himself he needs those people come through we can't help thinking how much less worried we would be if I humane competent well informed the doubt was making the decisions that affect this there's another pull cord from his face and yet we've learned that Franklin Roosevelt turned away refugees from Hitler's Europe we can still imagine how comforting it was for those who lived through the Great Depression hearing his radio speech also people were suffering in the Great Depression and lost everything but somehow listening to Roosevelt on the radio made him feel better maybe you've made them feel better but it did not change their circumstances my mother used to get real mad at me she

I thought that was clever saying from her side of the family but it was actually a slogan from World War Two encouraging the public to use fewer resources so more could be diverted to the war effort. We're all getting a taste of that as we're hunker down unable to shop at the spur of the moment and much more limited in our choices when we do thankfully we do have precedent to fall back on after all people are still alive today it through the Great Depression children. The roaring twenties came to an abrupt stop with the Stock Market Crash of Nineteen Twenty nine which saw billions of dollars evaporated into thin air. The crash wasn't the sole cause of the Great Depression. There were things like the dust bowl wherein incorrect farming methods turned the fertile American planes into a desert but the crash did act to accelerate the global economic collapse by nineteen thirty three. Nearly half of America's banks failed and thirty percent of the workforce was unemployed. You had to make the most of what you had and you had to get good at that fast to women. Help struggling homemakers to be able to feed their families. Eleanor Roosevelt an aunt. Sammy beginning in nineteen twenty. Six and Sammy had a popular weekday. Radio show called housekeepers chat about cooking and other domestic concerns as well as chitchatting about whatever else was going on at the time and Sammy was very popular especially in rural areas. Thousands of people wrote into her for recipes by nineteen thirty to one hundred and ninety four stations broadcast aunt. Sammy show and she published aunt. Sammy's radio recipes. Parenthetically the Great Depression Cookbook. It would be the first cookbook published in Braille. Interestingly enough though I struggle to think of how difficult it would be to cook on wood or old timey gas stove without good eyesight on Sammy's recipes. Were meant to be simple healthy and easy to cook. She's even credited with helping Broccoli. Find widespread acceptance prior to which it was only found in insular Italian neighborhoods and Sammie helped many wives and mothers through the Great Depression but once that was over then country was back on its feet. People lost interest. The show was cancelled sometime in the nineteen forties. Though sources don't agree when exactly. There's one other fact about aunt Sammy. That's worth mentioning. She didn't exist in the latter half of the twentieth. The Department of Agriculture Bureau of Home Economics created a wife for uncle. Sam The on creatively named Aunt Sammy. The character was voiced by different women at each individual radio station that way the listener would hear an accent similar to their own and feel more connected to aunt Sammy. Three women worked behind the scenes at the USDA to prepare the script each week that all the regional aunt. Sammy's would use fanny Walker. Contested Recipes Josephine. Harmful wrote the chatty portions of the show and Ruth Fan demine coordinated all of the Menus and recipes. The other woman who guided homemakers through was the very real first lady. Eleanor Roosevelt. When Franklin Roosevelt entered the White House in Nineteen thirty three? A record number of people were hungry but being president is not without its perks and the first family eight well even extravagantly while people stood inbred lines. Eleanor Roosevelt. Who didn't know how to cook realized that the way she and the president ate in the White House had the potential to influence and even help the nation through the depression. She hired an acquaintance. Henrietta Nesbitt whose husband was out of work to be the new White House housekeeper housekeeper at that time more like how we use the term homemaker today and not as we use a euphemism for cleaning lady. Nesbitt and Roosevelt retooled the entire kitchen installing modern appliances and coaxing the skeptical White House staff to use them. This was the first kitchen in America and it wasn't even sanitary recalled. Nesbitt in her memoir. Meanwhile Eleanor turn to home economists for menus that would balance nutrition and economy the healthiest recipes in the world wouldn't help people if they couldn't afford the ingredients what's more she resolved to serve these humble dishes in the White House. Her efforts were covered by national newspapers and followed closely by housewives. There was a catch. These nutritious economic meals were awful. The first kitchen was turning out some of the most unpalatable meals in modern memory. The president himself was usually the test subject for these new dishes and he obligingly choked them down. Things like deviled eggs with tomato sauce and prune pudding in place of lavish dishes. The White House table was the stage for things like Spaghetti with boiled carrots. Cold jellied billion and bread and butter sandwiches served so much mutton that being grown sheep which is cheaper than lamb. Because it's much tougher that it became a joke throughout Washington. The first lady experimented with foods like milk corno a mix of dried milk powder and cornmeal developed by Cornell University milk. Porno could be eaten as a gruel like dish or worked into recipes. I was not brave enough to research. What those recipes might be. The bland meals became so notorious that visitors to the White House would eat before they went nutrition. Not Taste was paramount in the time of soup. Kitchens and bread lines and eleanor. Roosevelt was trying to use her table as a way of encouraging and inspiring other Americans to get through this uniquely challenging historical moment. It was just as well they got used to eating a limited range of food because FDR's presidency also included World War Two and the Roosevelt's eight rationed food just like everyone else Roosevelt's White House eight modestly in an act of culinary solidarity with the people who were suffering. Jane's Eagle men. The CO author of a square meal told The New York Times. Here's a sampling of menu items. The first family and the public general might have enjoyed in massive bunny ears spaghetti with carrots and white sauce. The sauce was basically just milk. Meatless loaf made with peace oatmeal peanuts. Rice and or cottage cheese. Whatever you could get your hands on Mulligan's stew any animal. You could kill or find dead with whatever veggies you could manage or anything. That would keep hungry. They for a few hours without killing you like sawdust. It was reportedly created by the massive homeless population during the depression. Where people in homeless or migrant worker camps would pool their resources so that everyone could eat none of my sources mentioned where the name Mulligan might have come from. We do know the name origin of another STU. Hoover Stu Herbert Hoover had been elected just in time for the crash. But Unlike the Roosevelt's he continued to live the good life in the White House. Shantytowns BECAME HOOVER. Villes and the soup from soup. Kitchens became hoover stu the weirdest one of all and this report is opinion was peanut butter in baked. Onions was a whole onion hollowed out stuffed with peanut butter and baked. Just because we have two things on hand doesn't mean we should eat them at the same time as Eagle men succinctly put it. Peanut butter has nothing to say to a baked onion. Some recipes sound like they shouldn't work but surprisingly do like mock Apple Pie. Apples weren't readily available. But Americans weren't willing to give up their conic Apple Pie. The apples in mock apple pie were actually Ritz crackers and it worked. If you're not already familiar with Youtuber Emmy made in Japan. I'll link her hard time series in the show notes and on the website. She all kinds of dishes from times of deprivation including hot water pie grapefruit. Peel steak toast soup. And even the Haitian dirt cookies which you can hear more about in episode number ninety four. My name is mud while we can be grateful that recipes like ketchup soup and peanut butter and mayonnaise. Sandwiches are behind us. Some food created during the depression is still with us. Meatloaf is a comfort food classic and shaping food into loaves go to during the Great Depression. The same goes for casseroles which were a good way to use up odds and ends or to mask less palatable ingredients the depression also gave us the mother of all comfort. Food Kraft Macaroni and cheese or kraft dinner for my friends up. North in Nineteen thirty seven craft heard about a salesman from the tender Roni. Macaroni Company of Saint Louis. A Scottish emigrant aimed grant Leslie going rogue and selling his noodles with packets of greeted kraft cheese attached. They hired him to promote the concept and started selling it for nineteen cents for four servings.

"Yalta. Uh february four to eleven nineteen forty five the leaders meet in a rambling villa that nicholas the second had built overlooking the black sea the military situation as they meet in the west the united states the united kingdom and their allies have liberated all of france and belgium and are preparing to cross the rhine into the german heartland. They will encounter resistance. The battle of the bulge will take place but still they're preparing to cross into the german heartland in the east. The red army has already driven the germans out of the soviet union and all the way across poland and as the big three further red army is only some fifty miles from berlin among the agreements yalta roosevelt wins a commitment from stalin to participate in the united nations stalin promises to enter the war against japan within a few months of the defeat of germany and the leaders agreed to divide germany into zones of occupation but perhaps the primary topic of discussion at yalta that country with the worst luck in the world poland historian christopher andrew quote having already conceded soviet dominance of dominance opponent at tehran roosevelt and churchill make could belated attempt to secure the restoration of polish democracy and a guarantee of free elections andrew roberts described churchill's efforts will they were naive. <hes> you had over of course you had here is a stick up. They would not even the best possible way. <hes> ah stephen is pointed out. You know you have over a million red army soldiers in poland at the time the best that churchill and indeed <hes> f._d._r. Could possibly do is hope for the best the other things that you mentioned that they want is like the united nations organization and the declaration action of war against japan from russia three months later with both of them considered very important and and so the best they could do was to keep their fingers thus crossing hope for the best and when stalin made his promises about the integrity and independence of poland which he did again and again at yalta they they just had to this case naively believe him and of course he was lying through his teeth naive so so david fell. Keep pushing on this day because i want to go back to what stephen said about facts on the ground right marxist phrase. It's a it's a matter of realism and repeat pete again pulled. It was already well under the best. In fact i'd say behind the rear wheels of the bus by the time all these events are calling so there really is little practically speaking seeking that the western allies brinson americans could have done <hes> by the point of time at the altar and the these agreements are paper agreements verbal agreements not worth with the oral agreement's not worth the paper. They're written on <hes>. An admiral lead roosevelt chief of staff says they're leaving alte- he says mr president with the things we disagree agree to hear these agreements are so elastic they can be stretched all the way the russians can spend all the way from washington dc without breaking the agreement and roosevelt said that i know bill i know but it's the best i can do for poland at this time all right so what happens is that they press stalin and stalin agrees to reorganize organize the provisional government. He's established a communist government and over the following weeks after you all to he does indeed expand the membership but retains communist control of poland so they get essentially nothing from churchill and roosevelt get essentially nothing the other aspect of the altar agreement. There's a long communicate. Issue the talks about the u._n. And poland and so forth but in the middle of this communique is something something called the declaration on liberated europe and let me give you a couple of excerpts the establishment of order in europe and the rebuilding of national canonic life must be achieved by processes which will enable the liberated people's to create democratic institutions of their own choice the restoration ration- including the restoration of sovereign rights and self-government close quote and that statement was signed by all three men in fact in the levy levy palace palace..

You had to go through that something called the louisiana gap which isn't a gap and the germans proved again and again in the italian campaign to be absolutely superb at defense and counterattack when i was at my first university at cambridge. My mom told me that never i've tried to use the word inevitable in history. He said you must never used the word inevitable in history except for german counterattack in the <hes> in churchill's memoir i think it's volume for you're going to know the citation better than i. He tells us his state of mind at the moment already heard about the pearl harbor attack and he says something like <hes> so the united states was in the war into the neck and into the death <hes> england it was saved. I went to bed and slept the sleep of the saved and the thankful now that does but it's misleading statement because in in fact it was not exactly go to bed and sleep the sleep of the save. The thankfully came to washington d._c. To make sure that the americans were not going to reverse the germany first strategy and go hounding off in a war of revenge against the japanese in the pacific and abandoned the europe first germany strategy. He quickly finds out when he arrives that that's not going to happen gentleman. I uh return you to tehran where franklin roosevelt does something to me astonishing. We've got this debate. Raging between churchill and the british general all staff and the american military planners roosevelt remains at one removed from it but now at tehran he turns to joseph stalin and says what do you i think he lets joseph stalin in effect cast the deciding vote f._d._r. What were you up to what is roosevelt doing there. There are intelligence agency will this backup is that roosevelt had promised the russians a second front in one thousand nine hundred eighty two that we would the westwood mount a second front before the end of forty you too stupid thing to say because it was impossible to execute fill that problems we have no force in being besides that would have made any consequential effect whatsoever <hes> but stalin is continuously repeatedly begging for the west open front in the on the western side of europe that would draw off at least forty <hes> german divisions of the eastern front which was a charnel house <hes> so roosevelt goes to tehran expecting the half to mollify stalin the again about the fact that there is no second front yet open as of late nineteen forty three and just before he arrives in <hes> tehran. There's an intelligence report that originated with john dean military attache at the moscow embassy who reports maybe the russians are no longer interested in a western second front because they now have the upper hand on the eastern front and if the west just delays.

In nineteen forty five the twenty second amendment to the constitution was passed two years later in nineteen forty seven. Don't let the facts get in the way of a good story.
