"During the 2021 kickoff experience, which, of course, is happening in Tampa on Thursday night for the first game of this upcoming NFL season. Chris Thank you so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us and And before we dive into your partnership with the NFL on this initiative, let's start with just an overview of the work. The USO does in the background. The history of this organization. Yes, Ryan, thanks so much for inviting me on today and give me an opportunity to talk about the force behind the forces. The United Service organization better known as the US, So we were created in 1941 at the behest of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Just before the United States was getting ready to enter the Second World War, and he said at that time I'm paraphrasing here. We won't win this war with machines alone. It's going to take people supporting people. That's what the U. S So is and represents. Um, we are a collection of top volunteers. Partners. Donors, um, that want to wrap our arms around our nation's military and their families make them feel well supported and well appreciated. We consider ourselves of force behind the force because it does take Active support in order to deliver that mission of connection. That mission is to strengthen our service members and their families by keeping them connected to the things they love, their family, their home and their country. We believe the United States is us, uh, force for good in the world and in order for America to be strong. It needs strong service members to we, we believe by strengthening them by keeping them connected to the Things in places that they love. We're doing our part in that in that important mission, And certainly I think when a lot of people here usl they immediately connect Bob Hope. And the work that he did for the organization, the entertainment side with the U. S. So can you talk a little bit about all of that? Yes, absolutely happy to. Yes, the USO as well known for our entertainment towards dating back to the Bob hope in the incredible legacy that she has laid for so many entertainers throughout the generation, And that work indeed still continues to this day, where Some of today's biggest stars, but also younger, Uh, influencers are putting their time and talents towards supporting our service members and and making them feel that they're they're doing special exclusive concerts just for them and Um yes, that continues today through through our USO tours, but also through a wide range of what we call M V P programming, which is military virtual programming. Where you know stars, comedians and concerts are being put on for folks through virtual channels. And then when it comes to support for our troops overseas, you know, so much of the focus recently has been on the return of our service members from Afghanistan. But there are service members who are stationed all around the world, some in places that many Americans might not even realize we have troops stationed there and a lot of this work, including these care packages. Correct me. If I'm wrong, they're going to be for our service members serving all around the world. 100%. So you know, one of the the the great Strength of the US So is our global network of USO centers. So we have 250 centers now in 17 countries around the world. With operational capacities and capabilities to get support to our service members wherever they may be. Be it in the middle of a field somewhere in an undisclosed location, uh, to shift at sea. In fact, we now have delivered support to all seven continent. With us, so to go and care packages being sent to Antarctica, the support service members, uh you know who are who are deployed there to support scientific missions. So it's a real incredible way for, um, for us to make sure that no matter where our service members go, they know to look up. Find the USO, and they know that they'll see staff and volunteers there to make them feel welcome and well appreciated. Also want to touch on one aspect of the work us. So does that maybe people don't realize you handle and that's helped with transitioning service members and military spouses. This is so important because of the constant travel through different points of their service. Can you talk a little bit about that program? Yes, Absolutely. Our transition program is so important for the reasons that you mentioned. I mean, transition is a feature of military life. And you know, we're talking about not only transitions. Like the movement of people from place to place in a PCS transition or a permanent change of station. Um, which happens every 2 to 3 years for military personnel where they have to pick up their families. And move somewhere else in the service of our nation, But it also involves life transitions as well. I mean, joining the military is a huge transition, and that's why you know from the from the moment. That that our service members raise their right hands to defend and protect our country, Our Constitution and the values they're in. There are USO staff and volunteers by their side, answering questions, making sure that they feel well supported. From when they join to when they moved from duty station that duty station and indeed to help increase the preparedness and confidence of our service members as they're transitioning out of the military into civilian life.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066
"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

How monkeys played an instrumental role in the development of polio vaccines
"In the nineteen forties. America was under a constant threat from polio. A disease that had a then unknown cause and devastating effects especially in children. It spread quickly through unclean water and unwashed hands leading to symptoms like nausea fatigue. Fever and a stiffening of the body summers especially saw surges infections particularly around swimming holes leading to post polio paralysis and in some cases death on average thirty five thousand people were disabled each year. According to the centers for disease control and prevention president franklin delano roosevelt was among the most notable people to get the condition putting a face to a still uncertain disease. A vaccine was desperately needed as scientists learned about the transmission process including the fact that anyone could be a carrier in the next few years rival scientists jonas and albert sabin worked with teams in their labs on two completely different vaccines. Sabin worked on an oral vaccine. While sulk created an injectable vaccine that using a kill version of polio in the book polio and american story. David m ocean ski writes about the urgency of work. During the time quote. I talk there was reason to hurry the year. Nineteen fifty two was the worst polio year. On record with more than fifty seven thousand cases nationwide the headlines screamed of plague season and polio time. Twenty one thousand victims suffered permanent paralysis and about three thousand died from the very beginning of the polio epidemic. Monkeys were considered to be essential for research before human trials could take place becoming the unsung heroes of the fight to defeat the disease was through animal research that scientists i discovered that there were three strains of the deadly disease. The monkeys were purchased at a high cost from india and the philippines and shipped to the united states. Many died in transit so the national foundation for infantile paralysis now known as the march of dimes began overseeing their import in nineteen forty nine. A foundation established a special facility known as ot farms and rural south carolina to process the monkeys arriving from abroad oak tree farms operated in the picnic colony a beaufort county in coastal south carolina. Originally called the prichard bill primate center. The forty acre or sixteen hectare tract of land along. The river was called by local newspapers. The ellis island for thousands of monkeys from india naturalist john. Hamlet had the job of finding a space for the primate center. That was both connected to deep water ports and airports but also remote enough for neighbors the area he chose closely approximated the natural habitats of the monkeys with its abundance of shady long leaf pines and a mild climate. The monkeys were originally brought into savannah. Georgia one of the region's biggest ports and taken by truck the thirty odd miles or fifty some kilometers to the farm. When air travel became more popular they were flown by a london and new york before travelling by train to the low country. Once they arrived at the farm veterinarians treated the two thousand or so recess and sign a mogus monkeys before clearing them for transport to research facilities around the country. The monkeys spent twenty one days. Getting acclimated and eating a special diet was scientists carefully monitoring their status many went to sell nukes facility in pittsburg and sabin in ann arbor where they were given vaccines to test the vaccine. Strength against the three strains of poliovirus a few locals were aware of the research that was going on at the farm. Despite rumors of people encountering the animals we were unable to discover any opposition to the research facility perhaps because it was not well known and also because opposition to using animals and testing was not very common at the time in the united states. The movement against animal testing didn't pick up steam until around nineteen eighty in any case. The farms purpose wasn't permanent. Once sox polio vaccine was deemed a success and released to the public in nineteen fifty-five the work of qatif arms was no longer necessary and the facility closed in nineteen fifty-nine saban's oral vaccine came into use in nineteen sixty one the foundation that had established the facility. Its attention to reducing premature births. The monkeys found new homes and labs across the country. According to a former employee named louise crawford things at the farm were left just as they were including the monkey cages. A caretaker kept the grass and plant life at bay. The lab was locked up ready for someone new to take on the important task of preparing monkeys for research but that day never came in nineteen eighty the land and its contents were sold to development group. The lab equipment was donated to a local school science department while a farmer claimed the former monkey cages for his own animals. Today acreage along. The river is mostly residential and privately owned thanks to south and saban's vaccines polio cases of plummeted from three hundred and fifty thousand nine.

Now, despite Biden's numerous verbal slipups And increasingly obvious signs of dementia. The Biden campaign continues to insist that bike is just fine.

"On court packing because the left wing of the Democratic Party is gun ho to pack the court And on the other hand, I suspect that a president Joe Biden does not want to engage in court back in because that will mean that hurt Franklin Delano Roosevelt. When he tried to do it politically, And so, presumably a first term, Joe Biden would would cause significant. Little problems for himself if you would try to pack the court, but he doesn't want to turn off the Democratic base at this stage, so he wants to evade it, But he needs a much better answer than he's had. I mean, and I think one of the answer he started to get yesterday, which we put a late is actually a fairly good, which is don't talk to us about court packing, talk to the Republicans because of what you're doing about forcing anybody Barrett on this court. I think that's a pretty good answer. I also think there's an answer that's more sort of bipartisan that he could Give, which is that we need to work on how to make the courts much less artists, Then they become in recent years, and that's what we're trying to do or something like that. But the answer has been giving, which is I refused answer. I don't think it's working. I think it is annoying the press, and it's clearly giving the Republicans a talking point, which they didn't have before. So it was a bad move on part of the former vice president in terms of the hearings themselves. I think it's really interesting to see that different strategies. And I suspect the Republicans. The Democrats are going pursuit. I think the Republicans want to focus on her qualifications for.
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.

This time, however, the field was close defense bolted by a laugh that could not be snapped. One friend. Who's long blonde hair dangled gently over his ears, Toss the football to me and immediately began to climb the fence. I watched him thes with which he lifted 1 ft. Over the other three indifference of his disposition to the fact that this was an area we were quite clearly not supposed to enter. I remember hearing the soft, distant echo of a police siren, perhaps a few blocks away. Perhaps headed in a different direction. I couldn't be sure, but I knew better than to ignore it. He was the other side and look back, beckoning the rest of us to join him. I held the football in my hand. Looking at him through the chain link fence between us. I was. At this moment I realized how different he and I were before I had the words to explain them to either him or myself how he could break a rule without a second thought. Where's for me? Any mistake? I have the most dire of consequences. I hope to teach you so much of what my father taught me. I pray that you live in a radically different world than the one he and I have inherited. I do not envy his task. One that might become my own. I tell you these things because I know how strong and resilient you will be how you will take the fear and make a fort of the skin. And turn it into a bastion of love against unwarranted inhumanity. I want you to realize that sometimes it will not be the things the world tells you but the things it does not tell you. It will be the omissions. Rather than the director fronts that often do the most damage. Your textbooks will likely not tell you how Thomas Jefferson blacks were quote inferior to the whites and endowments of both body and mind. Franklin Delano Roosevelt's new deal left a hole just wide enough for black families to fall through while lifting the rest of the country into the middle class. They will not tell you how the federal government actively prevented black families from purchasing homes and stays across the country. It will not tell you how police departments across the nation are incentivized to seeyou as problem. They will not tell you these things. And because of that, they will expect you to believe that the contemporary reality of our community is of our own doing. We simply did not work hard enough that things would be different if we simply changed our attitudes or the way we speak. The way we dress. But that said, do not for a moment. Think you cannot change what exists. This world is a social construction. It can be reconstructed. This world was built. It could be rebuilt. Use everything that you accrue to reimagine the world. You are not a mistake. You are not a deficit. You're not something to be eradicated or rendered obsolete. You exist beyond pathology. You come from a lineage of those who built this country. You come from my grandfather's one who toiled tobacco fields amid the ever expanding pastures of Mississippi throughout his adolescence. The other who fought the war for a country that would spit at his feet as soon as he put down his gun. You come from grandmothers who dedicated their lives to teaching in communities where the quality of one's education is subject to the whims of the states. You come from my parents. You both protected me from violence and made me feel you are the manifestation of their unyielding commitment to overcome. I hope the world you inherit is one in which you may love whomever you choose..

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. Should Washington break up big tech should Washington break up big tech I'm here with two debaters who are GONNA be arguing yes or no to that question Zephyr teach out and Andrew McAfee. So I Zephyr you've debated with us before on stage and I just want to say welcome back to intelligence squared. So excited to be back on. Thank you for having me for such an important discussion.

So the way that this format will go we'll go in four rounds, the first round Each of the debaters will be making a brief opening remarks about their position on the the question before us and then We will have you know along and lengthy back and forth discussion. Towards. The end we're GONNA go to our third round, which will be where each gets to put a the toughest question they can to their opponent, and then a fourth round will be closing remarks and wrapping things up. So there's a lot to discuss a lot to argue here and we're GONNA start with our opening rounds. That's where each get two minutes to make the case in their position on the question would should Washington break-up big tech? So our first debater will teach out who will be arguing? Yes. On the question of whether Washington, should break up big tax Zephyr. The floor is yours. We are in a moment of a genuine crisis and our democracy, and so I want to start with some first principles. The principles of equality and freedom. Central Job of democracy and government. is to. INSERVICE of those goals, protecting citizens from any group or any person wielding too much power from abuses of excessive private power from private governor Mench basically arising out of the corporate form Anti monopoly antitrust is a deep and powerful American tradition was at the heart of the American revolution. Think about the tea party protests the great anti monopolist of our country include ebd boys who saw. How monopoly power was used to crush lack political power after the civil war and Franklin Delano Roosevelt who is arguably the greatest trust buster this country's ever seen and nineteen forty to nine eighty. We lead the world anti monopoly using antitrust campaign finance laws, public utility regulation, labor laws, and other tools to ensure that no private company had too much power but since nineteen eighty, when Reagan, tour down. Anti monopoly laws and their spirits. Democrats, and Republicans alike have failed and instead embraced a policy of radical concentration and the result is the world we live in now.

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

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.

Joseph Stalin was doing by the realistic of tangentially for second I caught part of mark live in last night and he was going off on the New York times I I I already knew a lot of this but he knows it inside now to check about the New York times well this was a paper of record what they call the old gray lady whatever this paper in its history has been the worst thing that could possibly happen around media in America in that they covered up the Holocaust it was run by Jews well that was talking about this last night and they covered up the Holocaust they they tried at one point took to paint a picture of the hill or was a good thing and then they also cited with Joseph Stalin The New York Times what are you doing now everything this paper prints out let's say if you took the pulse of it is is anti American as it gets they hate double date with the thank you so anyway that case being made that was made by elephant last night and has a TV show was out standing he had a south African guy and that is one of the foremost world authorities and action figures if you will standing against sex trafficking of children was a great show us on but that being said how was it that during Donna rover Roosevelt's time and he was a racist when the when the biggest racists ever they just cover it well back to the media never reported as a real things they were doing teddy Roosevelt street of racist I Woodrow Wilson as racist as the day is long for server Woodrow Wilson the Klan wanted died out you breathe life into it on purpose your city law requires a gun owner register every firearm and keep it in their primary residence with the sole exception being to travel to a police approved shooting range for practice so if you're in New York City you of a fire every single one of them in your house has to be completely totally locked up now you can't do anything with it at that point right somebody comes in you got to be a hang on let me get this key second bulls got on the phone my cell in other words if up if well they they have you register a firearm and I keep in that and make sure you you you can't take it out with you can't go out of the house with it and if you ever had to shoot somebody house because it was a bad do you be a big **** trouble it's a crime took the gun out of the registered address for any other reason you can take to the range if it's please approve shooting range for practice even if a loaded the trunk of your car the end of the owner merely six to take a gun to a second home outside city limits thus the question in the cases where the second amendment is a right that extends beyond the home well it's obvious that it does just by virtue of the wording but these legal eagles have to get together construe things the way they want them to be which is about as anti Americans against will like all other constitutional rights or if it can be exercise only within the citizens house that's that's this cases come before the Supreme Court the framers of the US constitution considered judicial independence to be one of the essential attributes of a free society what a political frenzy I'll issue pushes a majority of elected politicians to support a measure that threaten citizens fundamental rights only an independent court system can protect the rights of the minority that is why federal judges serve for life over the years this principle has been the last board of defense for racial minorities religious minorities other groups the lack political power although Congress sets the number of seats on every federal court including the Supreme Court by statute the number of seats in the Supreme Court has stayed constant at nine for well over a century since eighteen hundred dollars separate there for second do you realize that every court in the United States of America could be wiped away except for the Supreme Court at the hand of our president at the head of Congress so with the budgetary process and and it would be illegal it would not be illegal so all these courts that are busted our balls behind what's American what's not and **** toward the side of a global socialism could be done away with ninth circuit so this goes on to say the only service attempt change number happened nineteen thirties when Roosevelt became frustrated with the Supreme Court struck down major parts of his new deal what was the new deal new deal street of socialism when you're the new deal and talk while I Hussein Obama I support rose rose were my favorite presidents and the new deal new deal was socialism the nineteen thirty four thirty five thirty six Roosevelt threatened expand the court by six he is the total order fifteen justices so you could get a ruling he wanted can you imagine fifteen justices well I I mean events it also comes on a one man and one woman if if you got let's say you got we got nine right now so they have to say what the the the Heller decision would show up vote what toward the side of second amendment and of America Americans being able to keep and bear arms that was one person one judge so you could say one judge really unconstitutionally negates anything that's been voted on by a majority of people at the ballot box American people balked at this attempt to turn from the court in the partisan political institution leading to massive Republican victories in nineteen thirty eight mid term elections the court packing scheme collapsed but if they are point several new liberal justices to replace retiring conservative justices to previously conservatives diss were frightened by a terrorist threats feel to realize the American people rejecting those threats leading those jurors in nineteen thirty seven to reverse their previous ruling so they're intimidated politically weren't there nine the court consequently took a huge step to the left massively expanding federal power through the constitution's Commerce Clause and spending clause so the sender's amicus brief his clothes under frightened Chief Justice John Robert's death the not today a modern day card it repeatedly quotes Roberts including even a law review article that he offer authored a for the Duke law journal as a private citizen in nineteen ninety three these Democrats of apparently noted Roberts reportedly backed off from striking down Obama Kerr's individual mandate

"Very much. Good evening and welcome to the second forum of the Panetta lecture series. Or theme as you know is a checks and balances will our democracy survive. The becomes more relevant every day. These days. We in the last. Recession talked about the law. Talked about the molar investigation. And now we have the Miller report, and we'll get a chance to discuss that. We'll also discuss to other institutions in our democracy that are critical to Chuck Shinn balances a free press. In the congress. Successful presidents. Franklin Delano Roosevelt. And Ronald Reagan. Knew how to deal with both the congress and the press. Other presidents. Fought both and suffered the consequences. So the question will be talking about tonight. Is how do these issues impact on this president and on our nation, and we'll be talking with three very distinguished speakers about these and many other issues. So let me begin if I can with the with the report that just came out from Bob Muller. I like to. To say that it's important that we provide a little bit of caution that Winston Churchill used during World War Two soon after they defeated Rommel for the first time in the battle of Egypt Churchill before the parliament and said, this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But perhaps it is the end of the beginning. With that caution. I'd like you to talk about the molar report and its findings. There are two main findings and I'll quote from the bar litter. The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities. I binding and then to and this was a quote from the Muller reported self while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime with regards to obstruction of Justice. It also does not exonerate him at the same time. The attorney general made the decision that because there's no underlying crime that he would not pursue any action on that issue. What is all of this me where do we go from here? Is this the end or is this the beginning? Mark. Yes. It is. Those of us who praised Bob Muller for the past twenty two months, or even before that would would be well advised to remind ourselves what we said about him, which was true then and is true now.

There's a lot of the towns and cities in Ireland are twins with other towns around the world while we have a lot of them in America. This stall is twinned with Lescot gutters in partner. Okay. Which is one of the most prosperous towns per capita than America. So we're very fortunate to be twinned with Las Gatos, and we receive great cultural artistic I suppose benefit from that maybe not industry, but Sutton, the from a cultural point of view data's been thirty three successful that relationship.

And and it's a similar thing. You know, the other way with the new deal is that we act as those in new deal wasn't racist. And the new deal was an extremely economically racist policy that drew literal red lines around black and Brown communities and. And basically it invested in white America. And what it did was that it allowed white Americans to have access to home loans that black and Brown Americans did not have access to giving them the largest form of intergenerational wealth, which is real estate. And so this is really it. It really accelerated many parts of an already horrific racial wealth gap that continues to persist today. So how do we turn this around? Do you realize how much you have to hate America to go back into history and say that FDR and the new deal was all a racist scheme to deny black and Brown people real estate.

I figured out that I the reason I really liked her is because I was a very silly kid, and I very identified with my grandmother had red hair she reminded me of her so much. So when I got to interview Carol it too. I mean, it took me a long time. And I was at the point where I was complaining to other celebrities about not getting that care.

She's she's like the Keith Richards of comedy. Yeah. The who would be one that you've done my ultimate favorite of mine was when this guy named Kevin Richter, and I we started sound sessions here WGN in our one goal was to speak to this music artists named Andrew w k for the party music, really big metal based singer. I mean, if you know who he is he's a bit extreme. And we were so excited. The first time that we spoke to him. They went through a million questions. Anyway, we ended up getting to know him very well, and then interviewed him a three or four times throughout the years. Yeah. And now he's like listen. I just wanted to WGN for like, always supporting my music and everything. Yeah. And if he listened to WGN, we know that we actually do support music. We play him as music bombs. We we his his interviews on our podcast, but hearing getting to speak to him was was pretty cool because we asked about the party mentality and he's such a positive guy. But as far as the awesome celebrity that I've ever spoken to the best experience. There is a moment when I was in Austin, Texas at south by south west. And there was there was this guy this small country artists that was available to be spoken to. And so we were all lined up to see the sky and little did I know that we'd be in the room in this tiny little shell of a room in Austin, Texas, back stage five foot by five foot room with Garth Brooks Garth Brooks. So every every single person was ball excited. They have their no pads out and everything he was he was all amped. Up to speak to all these music artists in these music journalists, and we got to go into the room. And then all of a sudden they were like, hey, Michael, we need to tie you up with these people. So we can see if we can have you both interview him or you can separate and you can get a shorter amount of time. I'm like make sure that I can be alone in the room with Garth Brooks time, screw the time. So I was in the room with him. And I asked him everything from what was your first song about and you talked about this girl that he had grown up with and these love songs that he had wrote about her. And then now he's writing about his daughters and everything. Being alone in a room with one of the top selling music artists of all time. He's an icon.

"Weekend show of ideas, not attitude, and as always we welcome your calls this morning. The number to dial is four two four Bob show. It's a funny time in American politics. We we just had our major elections, but already the election season seems to be back in swing and already. We have candidates lining up to challenge. Trump in twenty twenty the democratic field is starting to emerge. And we're seeing some trends one in which I'm calling Russian roulette. This is not to be confused with the Russia gate. Sorry. This is this is Russian roulette. It's worthy candidates all try to sort of out progressive one another and there's this race to outflank each other from the left and without naming any names. I'm thinking of a certain age OC and her proposal for a g n d that is a green new deal. Okay. I guess I'll I'll name names just for clarity's sake. I'm talking about Alexandria Cossio court tests who is not eligible to run for president. But she seems to be setting the tone or some of the other candidates have camera Harris who's lined up and said that she's a co sponsor of this Bill a green new deal harkening back through the great depression. When Franklin Delano Roosevelt came out with his new deal to boost the economy, at least that was the intention. I'm joined this morning by Mark Joffe who is a senior analyst at the reason foundation, and he's an astute commentator on all things political. But in particular on matters. As a public sector financial sustainability. And I was researching for about this green new deal, and I just stumbled on an article that he had written recently for the Mercury News and the East Bay times, it was syndicated in a few different places talking about the the high speed rail, and I was looking for a particular statistic about high speed rail and in particular looking at how it actually stacks up. We do a real accounting to to the reality of. Both the financial sustainability as well as the environmental aids. And I wanted to see how long would it take if we were to construct high-speed rail from from San Francisco to Los Angeles. How long would it take to displace the amount of or offset the amount of emissions that it will produce just from the the construction of this rail and Merck noted a study from two UC Berkeley, researchers found that it would actually generate nine point seven million metric tons of carbon dioxide during construction meaning that it would take the high speed rail seventy one years, and that's using an assumption of medium occupancy. We'd take seventy one years to offset its own construction related greenhouse gas emissions. And this kind of you know, I think should should give anyone pause who is looking to the government as central planners capable of restructuring the economy in. Way that produces some of these environmental benefits that is alleging so here to talk with me this morning, Mark, Mark Joffe. We are going to be discussing the green new deal with a particular eye toward the financial sustainability. And also just how well it actually achieves the environmental aims. So Mark, thanks for joining me this morning. Thanks for having me, Charlie. So in your research for this piece. You also did the rest of us a favor, which was watching Gavin Newsom 's state of the state address Gavin Newsom recently, elected, governor of California. He also says he's not visiting himself for a run in twenty twenty. I was elected governor. He's got a job to do. But what what do you think? Listening to his speech was he playing this game of Russian roulette or or is he kind of above the fray since he's taking himself out of the race for twenty twenty. Well, you know, he he was stuck with something that came from two of its stars really unsustainable. Irrational plan for developing high speed rail in California, and I think he wants to be here for forty eight years, and he needed to clean house. So he had to start by leveling with Californians that the program not lazy originally approved under a governor Schwarzenegger and heavily pushed by governor Brown simply wasn't going to work in its current form. And so he indefinitely postponed than he it became very political a lot of people including present Trump market as a cancellation, but it wasn't he indefinitely postponed. Two of the most the two most costly aspects of the of the of the train one was a connection some Bakersfield Dom underneath a mountain main shots, the Los Angeles basin and the other way to connect San Jose to the central valley again going under tumbling under a mountain range. So those two pieces have been put on hold while a rump segment one hundred sixty five miles on connecting Bakersfield Timmer said in the central valley on our belts, not not a very rational system. But certainly the indefinite postponement of those two aspects stamps Californians on something in the range of fifty to one hundred billion dollars. Okay. So a billion here a billionaire pretty soon we're talking about real money. And when we talk about the green new deal, I don't know that it comes with a specific price tag. But just to kind of summarize this as I understand it the proposal which is maybe looking to places like California as a model for what can be done says we're gonna use some combination of these bowl transportation initiatives, multi multibillion dollar high-speed rail projects. New news solar power plants in the middle of the desert and through all of this. We're hoping to get to zero greenhouse gas emissions by two thousand thirty. And we'll talk more about some of the fundamental flaws of that kind of reasoning when we get into more of this energy accounting. But what would you say someone who's looking at California? They say that as California goes. So goes the nation. What are the lessons from this this Bill that we passed in two thousand six? To try to get get high speed rail off the ground in California are when was when was the original legislation passed for speed rail. A high speed rail authority was set up in nineteen ninety six to develop the plan and the plan was finally put on the ballot in two thousand eight earlier plans were pulled from the bout ballot for reasons not entirely clear on but took twelve years from formation of the commission to a ballot proposal, and we were looking at service starting in twenty thirty three along entire less Angeles to San Francisco card. So you're talking about a total period of thirty seven years from project conception to project implementation. You know, the way that AFC, and the others are framing the green new deal is that this is a an emergency systemic threat to the world that has to be solved by twenty thirty. So if that's the case, then you want to rely on high speed rail, it seems very unlikely that it'll achieve the objective of saving humanity from from climate change, given the the length of time it takes the plan and implementing systems. So if you're more of a moderate in the Democratic Party, you might be wise to look at this experience and say, you know, this might not be what we want to hitch our hopes on. Agreed. And there's some comebacks to what I what I've just said that I just wanna alarm cover a lot of people who are advocating high-speed rail look at China, and they're like, wow, China's built out an enormous amount of high speed rail within the last decade, you know, why can't we do that? And you know, there are two things you have to consider when you look at the China example, one is there have been some shoddy construction practices that have actually resulted in casualties and second on property rights aren't very strong in China. And so I'm condemning the land necessary to build the high-speed rail becomes very simple and China, and I I don't think most people including most progressives and moderate Democrats really wanna see average. People losing their houses willy nilly to these kinds of things. They would they would certainly hope that that would be a democrat across by which we all agreed. We are the least impactful route would be and then people would be properly compensated, and that would take some number of years to Kate. So if we're going to have a democratic process and relying individual rights, it's very hard to imagine how we would be able to lay out a national network of high-speed rail and get an operational by twenty thirty. Yeah. That's a really interesting point to bring up China because I think when you take this Bill the green new deal on its face and something that is extensively for the environment. I think the first people that I would want to get on board in in opposing it would be the environmentalists pointing out the statistics that you mentioned in your article about how you basically are front all these carbon emissions which is the exact wrong thing to do if this climate change is this the systemic emergency this best historic threat that that some people claim that it is. And then Furthermore think that that alone shows this is much more about seizing power than it is about. Protecting the environment. And then you look at China, which is definitely not a paragon of environmental protection. And what they have to do in order to build it at this. Accelerated time line is really only possible within a framework like there's where you don't have these property rights. So do you think that maybe there's some sense in which this idea is really just a cover for seizing power that it doesn't actually have that much to do with the environment. Well, I imagine that some people have that framework by I believe that a lot of progressives. Sincerely, believe that anthropogenic. Global warming is is a serious problem and something that requires not very immediate government action. So I I wouldn't necessarily look at everybody's intentions as being on negative. But at the same time, I think it really screen new deal plan, especially with respect to how it involves high speed rail. And I think also the the retrofitting is another example. But how these things represent ideas that may have existed for decades that a political analysts are policy person Guam's onto and then maybe take too far and doesn't consider all the developments that are happening. Both private and public sector public space. So high-speed rail is a technology that goes all the way back to the early nineteen sixties. So we're really talking about something that was implemented in Japan. I think his nineteen sixty four and now this is supposed to be the new way of doing things back in two thousand twelve thirteen Elon Musk published the paper saying why is California doing this? Why are we using this really old technology to to solve the problem is about getting people around the state, and he proposed the hyperloop system and a lot of development happens on that. I'm making this point because the problem with central control, especially by central control by people who are not keeping up with the latest in technology, and engineering techniques is that you end up with a solution. That may not be the right one being shoe. Horned onto the society is a hall. Whereas I think as most of our listeners now, the market is a great laboratory for experimenting with different ideas. And allowing the best ones to win out over the ones that are on obsolete or or or less effective..

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..
