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

"Question one of the results thus far. Should President Trump have done the town hall with ABC George last night? Yes, he should have I I have no problems with that. The field is narrowed. 52% say no. All right. 844 542 42. The president is just reading his prepared remarks now, and he's got these two chart he's on in the middle between two charts. Showing up like mountains, showing the rise in covert cases and then the precipitous decline in in recent weeks or months, and I thought he made a very good point. Much of this stuff is familiar. Unfortunately for all of us, but you made a good point that, he said. You know, Biden is really acting in a reckless manner by telling people that they can't trust the vaccine. He's just a spreading fear and panic and hysteria. But that's the that's the Democrat playbook. You know, as I've said before, 1933 Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. 2020 Joe Biden. The only thing we have to offer you is fear itself. That's all that's quite a change and not for the better either. Let's listen to a little bit of the president here. Players and coaches in particular the parents. Well, this is football must be the big 10 football just announced. As you know that their schedule they announced the schedule. It's going to be great, important tohave. I want to recommend that the Pac 12 also get going because there's no reason why you shouldn't be playing now, while they're on the West crash.

Should Washington Break Up Big Tech?
"Hi everybody I'm John Donvan, and this is intelligence squared us and we've we've just seen something historic happened digitally in the halls of Congress when the four CEO's of four, the biggest tech companies in the World Amazon and apple and facebook and Google were required to testify before Congress, and while there they were put in the position of having to defend their companies against claims that they've just become too big that they've become gigantic to the detriment of the general public that they are using their market power crush competition that they're driven by nothing but their own prophets that they're amassing huge amounts of data and that basically they're running afoul of antitrust laws. Some people are calling this big tex big tobacco moment, which is a callback to the nineteen ninety s when seven. CEOS of Big Tobacco companies all had to appear before Congress, and be accused of doing bad things to the public but is this fair in this case? Are these companies really doing bad things because of their size are they really too big and are you the consumer losing out because they've become big or are you actually benefiting because of the size of these firms? So we think in these questions, we have the makings of debate and that's what. We're going to do, but we're going to do it a little bit differently from our normal approach. Today, we're going to be hosting this conversation in a format that we call a to disagree, and that's where we streamline things a little bit. Go to the news we find the dividing lines, and then we bring you what we do best a debate in the form of a conversation between just two debaters not our usual to against to instead we're one on one and instead of having a resolution, we're really going with a question and the question this time is.

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

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

"It was not the united states it was the soviet union without the shadow of doubt but if by the question we mean what society what belligerent emerged at the end of the conflict in the best position and particularly in a better position than at the war's outset. That's the united states the war lifts the united states out of depression. It has the only intact large-scale l. industrial economy left on the planet and it is in a position to exert hegemonic dominion over the international system indeed to reshape the international system with new institutions like the world bank and so on so forth for the next the rest of the century and perhaps beyond so in the sense of long term consequences for your society and its this position in the world. The united states is unambiguously the winner but it did not pay the greatest price and i think there's a relationship between those two observations we husband and resources. We kept one hundred fifteen divisions of manpower at home that was originally intended to be mobilized and we've ginned up the production lines. We were humming. The nineteenth cleveland stephen stolen dominates the negotiations at tehran still more at yalta but you know what franklin roosevelt took in franklin roosevelt died two months to s- after yalta god bless him so we have to understand how the soviet union won the war on the ground in europe not by itself but predominantly and it did that because stalin didn't care about the lives is twenty seven million that he lost some estimates are thirty three but i hope to twenty seven he didn't care so if he sent a million of his enslaved collective farmers larmer's into battle and they encircled and killed he would send another million of his enslaved collective farmers into battle or dip into his his gulag labor camps for a couple of hundred thousand in order to send them to the front so that's how to tell to tell -tarian regimes can fight. Democracy's can't fight like that. They can't just say oh. You know what let's send a few hundred thousand of our boys to their death in order to take prog before stalin and takes rock democracies. Don't fight that way for a reason because we're better and the soviet union fought that that way and we had to live with the consequences the to long-term winners of the war or the anglo americans on one side and china on on the other china is a belligerent. The war starts there first. Not in europe and china emerges is on the winning side and as we're living with the today they're clearly one of the big winners stolen wins. The war loses the piece china a and the u._s. Win the war and they win the peace. The problem however arises because we have the same difficulty understanding that today's days chinese regime is communist. They're communists. They're not nationalists. They're not a charming. They're not going to be friends and we're not going to win their trust the same problem we had in the tehran yalta and pasta uh-huh and afterwards of wanting to look at communism in the face and make it go away and become something else evolving evolving in a direction where we could work with it a traditional nationalism we just lived through twenty years of this with the regime in beijing and now we've woken up and we've discovered you know maybe this whole time that's been a communist regime and maybe their values are different from our values and maybe they they treat their people differently from how we treat our people so they won the war too but it's not clear that they're going to win the long-term peace that's within our power to effect two last questions both brief seventy years later so be going on eighty years later you all here. We sit sit in the middle of a major university. The students here the students who just graduated this past june had no memory of the second world war. They had no memory sorry of the cold war. Why does it matter. What can you say to a twenty twenty two year old. Who has all all of tech before them what can you how can you say. How can you make them understand..

"Far east like southern sakhalin and the islands he wanted reconstruction an aide lend lease was still ongoing at this point and how long would that continue would it continue into the post war for example he had tremendous bend the same bishop that required some type of working relationship with the americans especially and with the british and the americans and the british finished understood this so they felt they had some leverage so and and i think it's also worth pointing out that the two things that as you say righty right he say he gave to f._d._r. Namely the declaration of war against japan three months after the defeat of germany and the building of the united nations organization. We're actually going to work in his favor as well. He he install in space where he would he would wind up being on the winning side against japan as it was of course he we needed to do it a few days but because of the nuclear bomb but nonetheless he did undertake <hes> what he promised to and also of course <hes> especially if the united nations nations organization was going to leave most go with a with a veto in the security council that was going to work in <hes> in russia's favor as well. I i want to go back to something that steven mentioned about unconditional surrender in the context of your question about acting in good faith so let's remember when the unconditional surrender formula meal was <hes> promulgated or announced who was at the casa blanca conference in january of nineteen forty-three the date is important because the decision has just roosevelt old and it was mainly raised belts and chech- wins along with that yes roosevelt the as i understand. You can correct me if i'm wrong. Churchill was a bit caught flatfooted by this now. The roosevelt announced the more or less unilaterally churchill of course exceed but the timing is important january of nineteen forty-three. There's still no second front. Roosevelt has not delivered church lesson delivered on the second front and they're about to announce that there will not be a second front in all of nineteen forty three because they're going to redeploy north african and forced to invade italy which is again not a strategically important <hes> venue as far as <hes> stalin is concerned and it's in that context in in that context that the unconditional surrender formula is announced and one way to read that and understand what was going on. Is this consulate a consolation prize for no second affront we will declare no unconditional surrender as the outcome of this war and then what happens yeah i the western allies invade sicily and proceed to negotiate a conditional surrender on the part of the government so talk about bad faith <hes>. There's plenty to go around all right. I want to go back to the declaration on liberated a-rated europe for a moment and to the question that stephen just put before us which is what is stolen up to is a nationalist list or is he a communist and to return to to franklin roosevelt and winston churchill who are after all leaders of democracies and what they say due to their own people matters so after yalta roosevelt goes back home and gives a speech to a joint session of congress in which he portrays the agreement is taking place in good faith. I'm convinced that the agreement on poland under circumstances he does give himself a little 'cause they're of wiggle. Room is the most hopeful agreement possible for a free independent and prosperous polish state. That's roosevelt. I come to you this. This'll take a moment to set up. Just release you on it. By the time of the altar conference the polls suffered an invasion from the red army in nineteen forty forty and invasion and occupation from thirty nine to forty one that forcible deportation of a million and a half polls to camps in the soviet union the catan massacres and the horrifying episode in which the red army halts in its advance on warsaw to permit the nazis to put down the uprising and raise two thirds of the city winston churchill reporting on y'all to the house to the house of commons on february twenty seven thousand nine hundred forty five are the polls to be free as we in britain in the united states and or france or free or are they to become a mere projection of the soviet state forced to adopt a communist totalitarian system.

"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..

"We'd won the battle of the atlantic the august of nineteen forty three and also crucially before we'd won the the war in the air and that would have been disastrous we wound up with another another dunkirk evacuation on our hands so what's <hes> general brooke chief of the imperial general staff and winston churchill did in many of those meetings that you spoke about was to persuade the americans to adopt doc the mediterranean strategy that had been largely successful by the time of the fall of rome on the fifth of june nineteen forty four and the very next day they came came across the channel in the successful operation where the franklin roosevelt is looking increasingly dubious as you talk absolutely i take i'll take that on i'd expect nothing less in fact but when it comes to going off into to capture <hes> vienna and also in his huge opposition to the envelope tack in the south of france the dosage took place in churchill churchill's opposition will say took place in the august of nineteen forty four what church was trying to do by then was to you keep as much of eastern europe is possible in the western bloc the western sphere and stop it from falling under under the soviet more but the trouble was that not only of course did the americans quite rightly when the wars win soon as possible but secondly the actual actual strategy of it and the tactics of it was not well nigh impossible. 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.

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.

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.
Poll: About a third of Americans approve of how Trump handled El Paso and Dayton shootings
"Kerry dan whether it's from history or from fiction. If if you're a student of the presidency you probably have a very good sense of how much the american psyche yearns for leadership in times of stress or national tragedy the day we celebrate that is fictional president thomas a with moore played by bill pullman in the movie independence day but in real life presidents have also all too often been called upon to make stirring speech. Is this not to fight. Aliens butts to bring together a country. That's grieving and confused often at some of the worst moments in the country's history. Remember george w bush with the bullhorn after nine eleven franklin delano roosevelt and the day that will live infamy ronald reagan after the challenger disaster faster and barack obama singing amazing grace after the charleston church shooting those are some of the few times in recent decades that partisanship has really really and truly been set almost entirely aside in our latest n._b._c. news wall street journal poll just thirty six percent of americans said they approve of president donald trump's handling of the shootings in el paso in dayton and that's not much better than he did in the wake of the pittsburgh synagogue shooting and and it's only a tiny bit better than his approval rating after hurricane maria hit puerto rico it is better than his approval rating for his handling of charlottesville arlit still only one in five americans said at the time that they approved of how trump handled the unite the right rally and the ensuing violence in charlottesville worlds fill almost exactly two years ago and here's a reminder. This is not really normal. It's not normal in american history for a president to only have a third third of americans are so approving of their reactions in the wake of a huge national events or tragedy sure i mean bush enjoyed sky-high. Hi hi approval ratings after nine eleven and almost eighty four percent of americans supported bill clinton's response to the oklahoma city bombing but also even after after hurricane katrina which is one of the most devastating parts of george w bush's presidency and one that made him particularly polarizing even after that advent still half of americans said they approved of his reaction to the hurricane at the time so trump is unusual in how americans have reacted to his response to national tragedies and when you take those numbers and you combined them with everything else that we know about public views of the president you get a very muddy muddy picture like wild majority disapproves of his handling of things like charlottesville trump is still enjoying some of the highest approval of his presidency when it comes the economy which is great news for the president but you might ask what is the most powerful thing when it comes to the two thousand twenty election what trump means jeans for americans wallets or something more holistic. That is the million dollar question but here's one clue from the data that our pollsters crunch that we noticed this weekend there are a total of nine percent of registered voters in this poll who say they like trump on the economy but they disapprove of overall for all and when those people were asked if they support trump for reelection or would rather vote for a democrat in twenty twenty three quarters said they would prefer for a democrat which is probably not great. If you're the current resident of the white house now for the record we did not aw test the favorability or any other kind of measures of president thomas a whitmore played by bill pullman independence day but i would love of deceased some head to head data with him versus the fictional presidents played by harrison ford and air force one and morgan freeman in deep impact those those would be some interesting cross tabs.

"They say that the presidency is a man killing John but only one president actually suffered and died through directly the strain of office. That was Franklin Delano Roosevelt with his death in April of nineteen forty five. Of course, he was also the only president to serve more than two terms. He was elected four times and died just a few weeks after the beginning of his fourth term, completing the first three terms, but the timing of his death shows God's hand on America through an extraordinary act of providence involving the vice presidency. Here's the story. President roosevelt. The first two terms had a former speaker of the house and a conservative Texas democrat named John Nance garner as as vice president cactus, Jack cactus, Jack was older than Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He was famous basically for one thing for saying. The vice presidency isn't worth a bucket of warm spit though, he didn't say spit he actually used a less polite term, but when garner retired. And Roosevelt decided to to run for a third term. Actually garner was interested in getting the nomination in nineteen forty Roosevelt picked a new candidate for vice-president and personally helped us elect Henry a Wallace of Iowa. Perhaps the most left wing major politician in the country at that time. Now, one of the things about Henry a Wallace is he had been secretary of agriculture. He had a brilliant record in that regard. But he was deeply profoundly sympathetic to Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Union with all the decoded material from the old Soviet Union. No, one has made the case that Wallace was a communist agent and the style of Alger hiss or the style of of other people who are very prominent in the Roosevelt administration who were indeed communist agents, but he certainly was surrounded by communist sympathizers, particularly during his own ill fated campaign for the presidency on the Progressive Party ticket nineteen forty eight. The point about this is that Roosevelt was terribly terribly. Sick people around him new and the choice. Vice president was enormously important Roosevelt. Just barely survived into his fourth term. He died in April of nineteen Forty-five after being inaugurated in January of nineteen forty five. What if he had died a few weeks earlier via died a few weeks earlier, a few months earlier Henry a Wallace would have been president of the United States. There would have been no Cold War because there would have been no resistance to Stalin, and there would have been no Harry Truman Truman was chosen eventually by the convention to replace Henry Wallace partially because there were a bunch of southern Democrats in particular who were scared to death of Henry Wallace who didn't like his sanctimonious liberal ways. He was close to the first lady Eleanor Roosevelt and they wanted to dump him from the ticket. But at the convention in Chicago Roosevelt, wasn't even at the convention. He was in San Diego trying to relax and gather strength of the campaign ahead in nineteen forty four Wallace trotted out a letter that Roosevelt had written to the convention chairman. And it said this about Henry a Wallace I like him, and I respect him, and he is my personal friend for these reasons I personally would vote for his renomination if I were a delegate to the convention. Meanwhile, Roosevelt and typically devious fashion was conspiring behind. And the scenes to dump Wallace. And in fact, he he called from San Diego to a bunch of democratic bosses who were meeting in a hotel room with a Senator from Missouri named Harry s Truman they were meeting in the Blackstone hotel and Roosevelt asked have you got that fellow lined up yet, meaning Harry Truman, the answer was no Truman still couldn't decide that he would be willing to be vice president was supporting another candidate Jimmy burns. Well, tell the Senator the president said that if he wants to break up the Democratic Party by staying out he can. But he knows as well as I what that might mean that this dangerous time in the world. Truman accepted the nomination. After a contentious battle at the convention. He wanted and America was spared. Henry wallace. What would have happened? If Roosevelt who survived the assassination attempt in one thousand nine thirty three had died say. In one thousand nine hundred forty three instead of nineteen Forty-five. Wallace would have become president. He probably could have won the presidency on his own in nineteen forty four. And the entire resistance to the Soviet Union, which was the proudest achievement of Harry. Truman's administration would have been very very different America through the timing of president Roosevelt's sudden death. Quote, tremendous break. A comparable break involving life and death. Involved another great, president of the United States Ronald Wilson Reagan. And this is a story that almost everybody knows though, we tend to forget what a close thing. It was just a few weeks after he became president. Ronald Reagan is riding high having one success after another with the congress of the United States, and he goes back to the Washington Hilton hotel to to make a speech, and as he is heading toward his car. He all of a sudden feels raises a hand to wave to the crowd. When a force like a battering ram. Shoved him forward. And he was falling through the open door the presidential limousine. He hit his head on the door jamb, and he fell right into the car. Who shot in the chest. A bullet a twenty two caliber devastator bullet. That was supposed to explode. Lodged itself, an inch from his heart. It was a very close thing. Reagan enormously impressed the nation. By his joking by his wit by his grace under fire. People at the time didn't know just how seriously the president had been wounded the transfusions that he needed the other people who had been wounded on the sidewalk like James Brady who skull was shattered by Hinckley's bullets Reagan survived and then forty three days later, another fairly miraculous survival that like Reagan's helped to seal the fate of the evil empire and to ensure American victory.

"Talk. I'm John Batchelor. Listened to John Batchelor show. April twelfth nineteen forty five a day that is burned in the imagination of the American people because on that day. America lost its champion. Franklin Delano Roosevelt is dead. The presidency in the hands of Roosevelt through the war. And through the depression came to be understood as an institution that could not shake and in April nineteen Forty-five. Everyone could read the headlines and see that the United States was on the eve of victories. Not only in Europe over the Hitler rights. But also in the Pacific over the imperial Japanese. However Roosevelt is dead. What happens now is part of the story of modernity. This is the moment that the powers the great powers. America britain. And Russia must decide what is to be done with the rest of the twentieth century and well into the twenty first century, a new book Potsdam the end of World War Two and the remaking of Europe by Michael Narberth takes us to the three men who are most important at this moment. Churchill prime minister of Great Britain since nineteen forty Stalin. The head of the communist party and really in charge of what you'd have to say is a ruthless. Autocracy since the nineteen twenties and Harry Truman, suddenly not only a new man to the presidential office. He was chosen as vice president the summer of nineteen forty four out of nowhere. According to the reports, but suddenly he is the leader of the United States of America. And he's not well briefed. I learned this from Michael Michael, a very good evening to you. Congratulations. And let's go to mmediately to those three men. I the way. The way Truman. Here's the news. He's both stunned and at the same time, it points out the inadequacy of his preparation, why wasn't he prepared to be president? Good evening. Michael good evening. It's really an astonishing thing to the fact that historical record and see just how unbelievably unprepared Kerman was when he was nominated vice president everybody saw that. This is not the man that you want taking the reins of government in the event of an emergency. Nobody took the time either when he was a candidate. Or when he was vice president to really try to build him up to try to explain to him some of the things that were going on. It's just remarkable. He'd never been allowed into the map room, which is what we've now called the situation room in in the White House. He barely met with Franklin Roosevelt. The cabinet advisers around Roosevelt took almost no effort to try to brief term. And and it's remarkable thing to look back. But the way the law was written the way the constitution was written in nineteen Forty-five when Roosevelt died and trimming became. President. There was no constitutional requirement to name a vice president. So part of it is is just the lack of thought that the father said given to this office and part of that I really think was kind of cognitive dissonance. As you noted Roosevelt had been in office since nineteen thirty-three longer than anybody else had ever held the presidency. He had personified that office for so many millions of Americans and people overseas the idea of him not being there was just something that I think people psychologically could not get their heads around. And yet there was anti you quote, MacArthur, having met him saying in six months, he will be gone. The Roosevelt who appeared at y'all too shocked people who hadn't seen him for a while the code is. He looked like Haiti's that he looked like a sick, man. So there was much anticipation that he was not strong. Did they expect him to recover and what accounts for Roosevelt not preparing Truman? What was Roosevelt's thinking? It's really remarkable. You're absolutely right about people looking at rose. Savell and really seeing how how sticky looked there were other people who said, look, it's just about of pneumonia. He's gonna be fine his own doctors gave him really very moderate medical advice. They told him, you know, quit smoking drink a little bit less. Really nothing radical nothing to suggest just how sick Roosevelt was why Roosevelt didn't bring Truman more into his confidence is a is a really profound question. I'm not sure that I have a very good answer. Remember Roosevelt, kind of kept his own secretary of state at bay like to do a lot of things himself that may be part of it part of it may also be that he just didn't know term, and he just didn't feel very comfortable around Sherman. It's it's really a remarkable thing. There was another man up for that nomination in nineteen forty four who later became secretary of state James Byrnes, who if if the Democratic Party leaders thought that Roosevelt was going to die. Burns would have been the obvious choice. He had been a supreme court Justice. He had been in the Senate. He had. I've been in the house of representatives. He was very experienced very well known figure they didn't pick him. They went for Harry Truman for a number of reasons. But one of them has to be that they thought that Roosevelt was gonna live out that that four-term Churchill when he heard the news the quote here he was in profound shock did he go into a depression? I know he'd been drinking heavily, but did he drink more heavily? I think it has to things that are that are happening this time period. One. He knows what Great Britain has lost Roosevelt. Now, he and Roosevelt had had their disagreements at to Roosevelt had insisted on a degree of separation. The special relationship wasn't always special, but Churchill had someone in Roosevelt that he could talk to someone he thought he understood. And now we had this complete unknown in Harry Truman he had a man Truman did not go to college. He was a very different background from Roosevelt and his people most of whom had Ivy league backgrounds. So not only is he dealing with another person. He's dealing with another part of America. And the second thing that's going on. And this is what I really drove church. Churchill is his awareness that Great Britain is in deep. Trouble deep financial trouble. Deep political trouble. There was to India to deal with it the end of the war. There was still Hong Kong and Singapore places where Britain had been either kicked out or come under severe pressure during the war. And he was aware that the United States was probably not going to help in in Britain recovering their imperial assets. And I think that's really what drove him into the sense that Britain was entering a real crisis. Even though Britain had come out of this this war, victorious Stalin. And when he heard the news, you have a note here that FDR did not understand Stalin did Stalin understand that Churchill was that Roosevelt was sick to death. I think two things are going on here as well. I think stolen understood that that Roosevelt is the devil that he knew. And I I don't mean that to pejoratively he he looked down on Churchill Stalin. Did he didn't think very much of Churchill, but he had a deep respect for Roosevelt. He had seen Roosevelt obviously at Yalta. He had seen the decline in in Roosevelt's health. I haven't seen anything to indicate that he expected Roosevelt to die by all accounts Stalin was deeply shocked when he when he found out the other thing that's playing and we don't know for sure that Stalin knew about it. But my guess is that he did in nineteen forty German had made some very anti Russian vary. Anti-stalin comments that were reported any American media and the New York Times not hard to find not hard to find at all. And so my guess was stolen was saying that you know, that that Roosevelt is going to be replaced or succeeded by a man who could be very very difficult to deal with indeed. And that must have been playing on his mind as well. There's enough uncertainty in the world. Now, you lose Franklin Roosevelt as well. It just compounds the uncertainty. Yes, let's underline what Truman had said in one thousand nine hundred forty s a member of the Senate, but he said a looking at the invasion, this invasion of the imminent, invasion or conflict between Russia and Germany. They were at loggerheads nineteen forty forty one. We all know that Germany invaded Russia to the surprise of Stalin in nineteen forty one. I will paraphrase Truman said if Germany's winning two big will side with Russia if Russia's winning big will side with Germany. We want them to kill each other. That's the new president of the United States. One more person is important here. Eleanor roosevelt. She says to Harry Truman when he arrives back at the White House. He'd been drinking with Sam Rayburn in the board of education room in the capitol. He rushed back and Harry Truman gallantly said. Is there anything I can do for you? And Eleanor said is there anything I can do for you for you are the one in trouble. Now, he was in trouble. Did he recognize that right away? Away. Michael he knew it. He knew it. He knew how much trouble he was. And he knew he wasn't prepared to this. He also knew that the advisers that Roosevelt had around him where people they didn't fully trust chairman. So there's going to be this process. Even before trimming goes to Europe for the Potsdam conference where is gonna gonna have to completely reshuffle that cabinet? Going have to get people in there that he understands people can understand him and people that he feels he can get the right advice out of. And I you know, Eleanor Roosevelt certainly knew the inside world of Washington and new which was stepping into. And it's again, it's remarkable to think of somebody stepping into that after having been a relatively obscure Senator all of a sudden finding himself vice president and virtually no preparation for what was undoubtedly the most dangerous point in world history. As you noted in the intro of trying to put the world back together, and here is Harry Truman with no college education. No, real background in the executive branch of government at all. And no advisers around him that he trusts and about ninety days to trinity Michael Nyberg is a professor of history. The Henry all stems from chair of history security studies at the department of national security strategy at the US army war college.

The History of Cyber Monday
"Welcome to tech stuff. I'm your host Jonathan Strickland, an executive producer, and that love all things tech today thought change things up a bit and talk about the history and evolution of cyber Monday. So where did this come from? And are the deals on cyber Monday. Really great. And I guess the answer to that. Second question is essentially it depends. But first, let's talk about some history. So before there was cyber Monday. There was black Friday both in the sense that black Friday is a thing is older than cyber Monday. And also cyber Monday is the Monday that follows black Friday. So technically, it's true in two different senses. All right. So what does black Friday one of the United States? Black Friday is the Friday following thanksgiving. Thanksgiving in the United States falls on the fourth Thursday of November. At least it has ever since. Eighteen thirty nine when Franklin Delano Roosevelt moved the holiday up a week from the final Thursday of November. Now since November two thousand eighteen started on a Thursday November. I was Thursday that means that two thousand eighteen will see thanksgiving fall as early as it can which means November twenty second the latest. It can fall in the month is November twenty eighth. Anyway, black Friday is the day after thanksgiving in the United States. Now, there is an apocryphal story that says the origins of black Friday are deeply racist and tied to the United States history with slavery. According to that story slave traders would sell slaves at a discount on the day after thanksgiving to help plantation owners who are going to want to purchase more slaves to do work leading up to the winter. That's a horrible horrible thing. But the story isn't true at all. And honestly, I find it hard to believe that slave traders would respond to an increase in demand by lowering their prices, they already seen like terrible terrible human beings. I don't think of them as being particularly altruistic. However, we can put that whole explanation aside. Anyway, if anyone tells you black Friday is based in slavery that is not true. The term black Friday in relation to the day after thanksgiving did not appear in print until the nineteen fifties. As far as we can determine there was however an earlier version of black Friday, though, that was not the day after thanksgiving that black Friday wasn't associated with a holiday at all. But rather with a stock market crash that happened on Friday September twenty fourth eighteen sixty nine the cause of that crash was that there were two speculators named Jay Gould and James Fisk and together they were able to drive up. The gold prices way way up while they were trying to corner the market on gold on the New York gold exchange. They had even planted a story to convince US president Ulysses s grant to stop gold sales. They had this report that it was going to hurt farmers out west. Meanwhile, they bought up as much gold as they could. And that raised gold prices as a result. So they thought they were going to be rich. They're going to buy up the golden than they could sell it off at these elevated prices, however, president grant found out about it any ordered the release of millions of dollars of gold to be made available on the market and that caused prices to crash suddenly there was way more supply and this crash ended up affecting the stock market as well. However, this was a moment of acute pain. It was a sharp debt in the stock market, thus the name black Friday, but in the long term. Meant that the nation was actually able to avoid a more persistent depression. So it ended up turning out better than it. Otherwise would have the earliest known reference to the day after thanksgiving being black Friday dates to nineteen fifty one from periodical titled factory management and maintenance that it was a real page Turner..

"Dotting? This is on point a mega chucker Bharti. That's keep the home. Fires burning from John McCormick a World War One era song because we are talking about the end of the first World War. The great war November eleventh nineteen eighteen it was a hundred years ago this Sunday. And I'm speaking today with Jack Beatty, he's on point news analyst and author of the lost history of nineteen fourteen. Laura vote also joins us she's curator of education at the national World War One museum and memorial. And Margaret MacMillan is with us as well. She's professor of history at the university of Toronto and author of Paris nineteen nineteen six months that changed the world. And also the war that ended peace now, I wanna play for all of you a couple of clips here from two American leaders following the first World War. First of all we're going to hear from nineteen Twenty-three the fifth anniversary of the armistice. You're gonna hear the voice of president Woodrow Wilson, he gave a speech calling on the United States to show global leadership to join the league of nations. Is rather than to return to isolate ISM that? This is the first known remote radio broadcast in America. And the the audio is a bit hard to understand. But first of all we'll give you a couple of seconds of it. Here's president Woodrow Wilson, nineteen Twenty-three. Can be. Well, so that's president Woodrow Wilson in nineteen Twenty-three saying the whole field of international relationships is in Perlis confusion. The affairs of the world can be set straight only by the firmest and most determined exhibition of the will to lead and to make the light and the right, prevail. Now, of course, he was referring to the United States not joining the league of nation. His vision did not come true for America in any meaningful way. And that whole field of international relationships in Perlis confusion continued on into the nineteen thirties. So here isn't in nineteen thirty nine. His president Franklin Delano Roosevelt commemorating Armistice Day with a speech declaring America's quote solemn commitment to be a good neighbor to the world. And here's some of what Roosevelt said fellow American the living memory of war as blow. Each and every one of the day. Thought return the great objectives of the path. We understood as well as any the cry. That went up that the world conflict should be made a. Due end. We have sought by definite act and follow him commitment establish the United States as a good neighbour among nation. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in nineteen thirty five Laura vote. Tell me when you hear Wilson and Roosevelt like that back to back there. What do you hear do you hear sort of two presidents urging the United States in a direction that it was reluctant to go? These are two very different presidents in in many ways, you know, an and would you Wilson actually said that I think it would be the the greatest irony of his presidency. If he becomes known for, you know, becomes known for war and kind of working on that on that global scale. It is a man who learned a lot out of World War One. I think FDR realized the need not for a partisan congress, which is what would you Wilson ultimately encounters as he returns from Paris with the terms of the treaty of verse. I and he recognizes the need to bring the country together before we head into a behead before we had into a war. But he also takes those eight words that changed the face of American foreign policy that Woodrow Wilson used in April of nineteen seventy. That we must make the world safe for democracy that causes us to step towards an into the role that we ultimately take on in World War Two. And and Jack mentioned that there is certainly a very significant German who learned lessons out of though World War. But we also have Americans like MacArthur end Marshall and Truman all who take their own lessons as well. Which might be seen as some potential successes out of the sacrifices that were made, you know, years at decades earlier Jack Beatty jump in here. What do you think? Well, yes, people did learn lessons and some of the lessons echo down the years..

Arguing about must have been God's Ma. And. But but also a respectable number. That are Quaker here we're talking about a tiny fraction of the population. No more than one hundred thousand people it's produced in the twentieth. Century two presidents. How is that even possible Satistics? What would a book you say? The odds of this little splinter group who we all are toiling are innocent and unworldly and pious. So anyway, so I got the twelve I'd like to if possible go through a few of these because I had doubted them instantly to Harlem kids, and almost immediately began to produce result.

But that steel trap set of ideas, proving that case is not mine, I'm not up to that standard there. So I began to get hot water ever since share a few. We all are vaguely aware that literacy is at the heart of an intellectual inner live. But what we don't understand is that prior to the first World War literacy, commonly was divided into pass literacy reading and active literacy speaking and writing, and none of us are aware that in colonial days to teach active literacy to ordinary people was a crime why because reading you're locked in your own head, and you still have the benefit of being able to read the boss's instructions about what to do. But if you can speak well as our current president can or right? Well, you can reach way. May be on your own skull. And where he crew Allen's that's a no no for narrated. People those supposed to be so in our take. Are there? Right. Look. So funny was ink blots and things known treats them seriously. So strong competencies in the active literacy are at the core of elite province boarding schools like Groton, Saint Paul's trout.
