Biden & the Democrats Want to Create a 'Depression'

"Close the door on it to get that last little bit out something that she learned to do in the 1940s when I don't know if toothpaste was rationed or if it was just so expensive Well there is an example that you bring up They rationed oil and gas In other words you couldn't get more than a certain number of gallons of gas And by the way the government did that just again like now when fuel prices were going crazy as they are going now So the same logic applies And I'd like to drive home to your audience that when the government handed out the ration tickets it handed out you'll love this to each according to their need In other words for a rural family you got more gas coupons because you had to work your car your truck you had to go longer distances That's what rural means urban people didn't If you had a larger family you got more coupons for milk or meat In other words there was an attempt to be socially fair about a period of difference But my parents my dad was a rabid Republican all his life his father was a rabid socialist and I think that it was an ab reaction But nonetheless they the stories that I heard about World War II as a kid were that everybody pulled together even if they hated Franklin Roosevelt once the war happened everybody pulled together I can't imagine that happening today when you've got Republicans promoting the idea.
A Look Back at the Life of Dwight Eisenhower
"Of course, was the 34th president of the United States. He served from 53 to 61. Sort of the capstone of his career, you know, most do knowing his president, but most know him again as he is being the supreme ally commander in Europe at the end of World War II and leading the offensive of all of our allies against the axis forces and Hitler and Nazi Germany. These all playing together for this became his final speech and there's a lot written about Eisenhower and I would encourage you just to the wood of Washington. If you want to know more about the man themselves, you want to know about how they grow up how they came about, I would encourage you to read their several books out there to go read about them because they're fascinating in their where they came from and how they got there. In fact, it's a really interesting correlation between sort of three presidents in a row and this is an extra for you podcast listeners today. For listening, you know, if you look at the middle of the century in the United States during the came out of the FDR presidency coming out of the great depression moving into World War II, you had a person who was in essence grown for politics. He was groomed in many ways and his family from his cousin to everybody to be a politician to be a leader of governor or president. That's what FDR Franklin Roosevelt was sort of groomed to be. And then you have the one who became president one of the biographies of his accidental president. Harry Truman was one who was not groomed. He came from very humble backgrounds. He came from a very working class middle of the country background and Missouri to know to the presidency. And took those took that office very seriously because of where he came from and in the desire to serve the country. And then you transition to another midwesterner in Eisenhower. So in the middle of our time frame there in which we went through The Great Depression World War II into what began the use of the atomic bomb, the use of the beginning of the Cold War. And then the space race toward the end of Eisenhower's term that was beginning, again, this buildup of nuclear power, this buildup of military power through Eisenhower's administration and even the beginnings of what we say we see the battle of Korea. And then we see the start of what would be known is from our perspective later in Eisenhower's administration owning the candidates and then Johnson's is the Vietnam War.

The History of US Presidential Transportation
"First us president of any sort to fly in an airplane was theodore roosevelt. It was rather short flight as airplanes at the time didn't have a very long range and it was probably one of the more dangerous. Flights ever attempted by president sitting or former come over after this short sightseeing flight. Us presidents didn't do any flying. It would be another thirty three years before an actual sitting. Us president would get on an airplane. The first airplane designated for presidential use was purchased in nineteen thirty three it was a douglas dolphin amphibious aircraft and it was operated by the us navy as there was no air force at the time. The co name. It was given was r d two. It could seat four passengers and there was a small sleeping compartment. The interior was custom made for presidential use with leather seats. It was stationed at the anacostia naval airbase in washington. Dc until nineteen thirty nine and during that time it was never once used by the president to be fair. Fdr was in a wheelchair and getting in and out of an airplane especially a small amphibious plane was probably something that he wasn't keen to do however he did eventually take a flight the very first airplane flight by a sitting. Us president took place on january. Eleventh nineteen forty-three when franklin roosevelt flew on. The dixie clipper was a commercial boeing. Three fourteen clipper which was operated by pan. Am he flew fifty five hundred miles to the casablanca conference in morocco to meet with winston churchill and charles de gaulle. The flight was done in three stages any flu rather than took a ship because it was considered safer than risking german u boats in the atlantic after the trip the army air force didn't want to rely on commercial airlines for presidential transportation. They proposed the president. Use a modified. C eighty seven liberator express heavy bomber. The plane was dubbed the guess where to when the secret service reviewed the safety record of the plane. They rejected it. For presidential use. The plane was used for carrying the first lady. Eleanor roosevelt however on a trip to latin america. But it never carried the president. The secret service then approved a douglas. C fifty four skymaster which was a transport plane used in the war. It was named the sacred cow ended. Had sleeping quarters are radiotelephone and a lift for getting roosevelt in and out of the plane in his wheelchair. The only time you used it was to travel to the yalta conference in february of nineteen forty five. This plane is on display at the museum. At the wright patterson air force base outside dayton
Democrat Presidents Have a History of Promoting Propaganda
"I want to remind you of a few things. Those of you who listened over the years and have read some of these books I've written over the years. This is not the first administration. To try and take out their political enemies and criminalized Politan. Woodrow Wilson was the first they create a whole propaganda machine. And he used a man by the name of Bearnaise. You know, like the like the sauce anyway, His name was Bearnaise. He wrote a book called Propaganda. But before that, he spoke about it. He wrote about it and Propaganda wasn't a bad word back then. And so what? And so Wilson decided to use him and Some of the surrogates. Propaganda.

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

But there's good news today. Today we swore in julia. Let no a new republican congresswoman. That means nancy pelosi.

London jeffrey with old you acknowledgement of the perils of taking any of the cunanan and associated. Nonsense seriously. why were they excited about march. The fourth march the fourth has a particular role to play in the broader cunanan story and the short version of it is that marched. The fourth was the original inauguration. Date for the us presidency so george. Washington's inauguration was scheduled for march the fourth seventeen eighty-nine as it happens it didn't actually occur in fact due to bad weather and so it had to be postponed to april. But for nearly a hundred and fifty years marched. The fourth was the inauguration date for the presidency until the twentieth amendment which was enacted in nineteen. Thirty three changed. The inauguration date a january twentieth for the reelection of franklin roosevelt.

Us government has been wholly illegitimate Since the presidency of of ulysses s grant for very complicated and bizarre reasons we could get into. But it's that idea of march the fourth as the original. The right inauguration date for the american presidency that has given it such prominence in the cunanan ideology.
Biden signs executive orders addressing the economy
"Biden has turned to executive orders in his first days of office says he looks to address the economic crisis brought on by the pandemic. He's also pursuing a massive coronavirus aid bill Can Walsh White House and political analyst for U. S. News and World Report joined w. T. O. P S John Aaron to break down Biden's first few days in office and some of the past presidents he resembles well particular FDR going back a long way to 1933 when he first became president. He had a huge depression to deal with the worst economic calamity we've ever had, and his philosophy was similar to what Biden seems to be doing action action action. The country wanted the president to do something to act boldly. And you seeing that with President Biden again today with executive orders. They're going to continue indefinitely pushing this $1.9 trillion stimulus bill moving to try many different things to get the economy corrected, but mostly to get the coronavirus under control and to get the vaccines out. That's his first priority right now. And probably should be given how difficult that issue is for people to deal with very quickly on Lyndon Johnson. Of course, he took over after President Kennedy was assassinated. He also wanted to show action himself, particularly in areas of diversity and racial justice with writing is also doing so. I would say those two presidents come to mind and you see a lot of echoes in what Biden is doing when you compare them to Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson. The president, of course pitches himself is a compromise or experienced in the Senate. But we're hearing that some Republicans say there's no way they're gonna go for some of the elements and at one point trillion $1.9 trillion.8 bills. So where does this go? I think the thing we have to remember here, of course, is that this is vital opening bid in his attempt to get a lot of this legislation through. He's been around a long time. 36 years in the Senate years as vice president, he is known as a guy who knows how the Congress works. And so I think we have to realize that this is his the start of the neck. Negotiations started the deal making there are not good signs from the Republicans that they'll go along with him. There's a lot of pushback of the same time he's getting the sense from the left on his in his party to push further in government activism, and so on, So it is a difficult line. He's walking here, but I think That there's the potential particularly initially here that he will come to some kind of a compromise. It'll be difficult, but what he's got out there now is sort of the whistle ist. I think when he gets to the real bargaining, I think he's gonna have to borrow back off from a lot of that. But I think it's possible

"They began to see The government is changing its role in American society is indeed itwas. They saw the new deal as a force for social democracy in the United States as a Program of reform that would give workers more control over their workplace give them more money, but also a government that was providing jobs for the unemployed. That was taxing rich people of a higher marginal rate, and that was providing pensions for the elderly, as well as guaranteeing union rights and The corporate growers in California began to sort of wake up and say this whole program which at first we thought was trying because we were getting agricultural subsidies and we were getting more infrastructure projects. We see the government now as a force for evil instead of a force for protecting the markets, and so we need to organize politically, not just against the labor movement but against the Roosevelt administration. So they developed a lot of political techniques that would be used by conservatives in the future. One of the most successful was to try to create a coalition between business conservatives like themselves and social conservatives. Okay, because the economic reforms of the new deal were broadly popular, so how could you get A mass coalition against Franklin Roosevelt of his economic policies were so popular Well, you could say Franklin Roosevelt is actually threatening traditional social mores that he is Bending gender hierarchies and racial hierarchies. He is friendly to Communistic ideas, and this will destroy the family. It will destroy the church. And get a lot of people who were behind the new deal for its progressive economic legislation to see it is a social and cultural threat. So how effective were they in saying this isn't just an economic thing? As you say, This is this is changing religion. This is changing the family like you know, the world that you know is changing How effective were they and what kinds of voters in what kinds of places like heard them and did that resonate with Well. They were first very successful in 1934 in the governor's race in California. This was ah famous race because the socialist author Upton Sinclair, Re registered as a Democrat, and then Durant won the Democratic nomination for the governorship. And suddenly all the forces of capital in California. We're very alarmed that the Socialist was going to be governor, and so they began experimenting with public relations techniques that would become mainstream. By the late 19 thirties. In particular, there was this firm and in Sacramento called a Whittaker and Baxter, Leone, Baxter and claim Whitaker were these public relations consultants. Who were pretty unknown at the time, but who were then hired by Ah lot of corporations and capital in California to oppose Upton Sinclair, and they started using these techniques of discrediting Sinclair. Not as Socialist because socialism was not necessarily that unpopular in California, 1934 but as a threat to the family and the church, and once these techniques were used against Sinclair and work so well, they started using them more generally against liberal Democrats. So how did it work that the conservative movement that these approaches to campaigning which were pretty novel? How did they get imported out tol other places to other states. Well, I think Herbert Hoover is an important figure here is that he is very much involved in the campaign against Upton Sinclair. He's very much aware of the techniques being used. And he starts to then network with other conservatives throughout the country and encourage them to use the same techniques that were so useful in California against Sinclair and then more broadly against the new deal and liberal Democrats. And Hoover is one of the people who helps discover Richard Nixon in 1946 on helps to arrange a group of funders of rich donors for Nixon to run first for Congress and then for Senate. And it is this network that he helped set up to help Nixon. That then later helps Ronald Reagan when he runs for governor of California, 1966. So I think that these Three California presidents and are in different generations. Herbert Hoover, Richard Nixon and then Ronald Reagan helped to develop these techniques and the bass and the fundraising mechanisms. That help export this type of conservatism to the rest of the nation that 1934 governors race. I had no idea it was one of the sort of Hose into the water of something that we talked about all the time now, which is dark money like there's dark money and political campaigns and who knows where it comes from, but it sounds like California was a pioneer there. Yes, exactly. And also in in fake news, Um the conservative media not only distorted Upton Sinclair's record, but they outright lied about him. And the Hollywood film Studios created faked newsreels that made it look like they were interviewing people on the street about Sinclair, but in fact they were actors who were Picked to discredit Sinclair's campaign. So all of these techniques that they're they're developing using the conservative media that spread these lies and to paint. Social democracy, liberalism, progressivism, whatever you want to call it as American project. These ideas are being packaged and sold to other conservative politicians throughout the United States. Mean these public relations consultants in Sacramento Whitaker and Baxter, who formed this firm called Campaigns. Ink are then hired by a number of campaigns throughout the United States over the next couple of decades and their instrumental in helping to sink Harry Truman's campaign for universal health Care and in 1948 by painting and a socialized medicine. So when you look at, um conservatism today, knowing what you know about many of its roots in California in the 19 thirties How do you see what goes on around us now, as sort of a mirror or an echo or connected to that time? Well, I think that conservative leaders today understand. Basic lesson that the corporate growers learned in California in the 19 thirties, and that is if you want to create across class coalition. Against liberal policies. That are otherwise broadly popular. You have to appeal to social conservatives. You have to create a coalition of economic conservatives and social conservatives and really make your message about threats to traditional values. In order to mobilize working class and middle class voters. It seems so. That e mean I feel like the argument there is that people can't see this sort of juxtaposition of like, Well, I agree with the cultural piece of this, but the economic piece of what of what conservatives are offering Might, um not help me? Um Do you think it's a The issue is sleight of hand or do you think the issue is that people truly believe? You know, whatever Income level? Look, you should make it. You know, you should sort of make it on your own, which is like very Herbert Hoover. Like he made it on his own like you should make it on your own and It's not just in issue of religion or or or gender hierarchies or whatever. It's also that it is good to have sort of free market conservatism. I think it becomes all one package that economic conservatism is linked with social and cultural conservatism that the idea is that Having a government that intervenes in the economy means having a government that Intervenes in your family and in your religious life, and so therefore you need to be in favor of small government. Not just because that's what helps business thrive, but because small government is what is necessary to protect American families. You know you You talked about the kind of connection between Hoover and Richard Nixon and Nixon and Ronald Reagan. I wonder what kind of connection you see with President Trump. Because in some ways, he has very conservative policies. If you think about like, um you know who he appoints the Supreme Court that sort of thing. Um, but in other ways you've seen too long time conservatives like intellectual conservatives, and people like Bill Kristol have just completely broken with President Trump, and he's not alone in that break. Um Just with situate President Trump if you can for me. Well, this is something that I'm wrestling with every day because I think that Trump certainly is a break with certain kinds of conservatism in the United States. He certainly breaks with E Bill Kristol kind of neo conservatism. But neo conservatism really rejected the old right in the United States the old right of the 19 thirties, which it saw as very isolationist..
Donald Trump's disregard for our transition rituals threatens democracy
"Have you noticed. This is not normal. The president openly trying to say only the votes for him should count talking about sailing election. No legal path to succeed. We've been reporting on how those michigan republicans were welcomed at the white house after being shamed in their own home state for what they were doing. And donald trump is also taking petty moves that basically delay or mess with aspects of the transition. They won't mess with the transfer of power. All of this. We want to show tonight with. The evidence is a radical break from a longstanding. Bipartisan approach to the peaceful transfer of power in america that look forward to talking to the president so honored that he was attended with hospitality to me. And my wife. Yesterday didn't need to do this. And i am most grateful that He would do so good morning last night. I had a warm conversation with president. Elect barack obama. I congratulated him and senator biden on their impressive. Victory told the president-elect he can count on complete cooperation for my administration as he makes the transition to the white house. My number one priority. In the coming two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures dental is successful. We turned presidential historian. Michael beschloss what contrast you see from there to now well once again are a donald trump tonight as a category of his own. Go all the way back to john adams who lost to the guy who was at that time as you know his political enemy. Thomas jefferson. Adams was angry about being defeated by jefferson. And he didn't hang around for the inauguration that tradition adopted established yet so adams got an a stage coach and went back to massachusetts before jefferson was born in but it began this tradition. That even when you have an incumbent president who is angry at the guy who beat him for reelection. Herbert hoover in one thousand nine hundred ninety three and franklin roosevelt over to the white house to talk about how they should transfer power even when they rolled up to the capital roosevelt and hoover sat in the back of an open car. They shared a lap robe. If you could believe it didn't talk much. But that's a tradition. And as you say the tradition is running alongside both the rules constitutional requirements and the norms that much abuse a framework or term in the last four years That provide a buffer a provide a context all this. We just showed the outgoing president's michael stays with us. We want to show michael. And our viewers the other cases where we have seen the candidates as mentioned who lost just conceding with some eye on their place in history john mccain making what for him was a painful concession to barack obama in two thousand and eight hillary clinton in that loss that shocked so many including many in the republican party. She got up the next morning and gave that speech pledging cooperation to president-elect trump and sixteen we've seen presidents who lost reelection like trump did face the music the people of the united states that made the choice and of course. I accept that decision. But i have to admit not with the same enthusiasm that i accepted the decision for years ago. People have spoken. And we respect the majesty of the democratic system. I just called governor clinton over in little rock and offered my congratulations. he did run a strong campaign. I wish him well in the white house. You know michael you deal with facts and evidence you have a rigorous process between where you start and publishing one of your history books. How do you measure class. Because what i see there is something. That's hard to prove. But i feel it inside which is across ideology in parties. We've just seen many different presidents showing a type of class or even grace that is absent right now at the white house. We're going to ari. I've got two sons who are now in their twenties but they used to play a little league and every time they played a game even if they lost they would shake hands with the winning team and say good game. That was assumed this. That's that's american. What is not. American is to claim when you didn't win to be a poor loser you try to be out of keeping with the tradition of all those guys you just showed even richard nixon who is not thought of in history as a particularly gracious winner. Nineteen sixty gets beaten by john kennedy. He was very angry about it and it was very sad about it but he goes out and tells us supporters in los angeles in america. Once a decision is made we unite behind the candidate who was elected that was even before the final results were. Yeah that's great a great example. You're given off as we say off the top of the dome michael We have one more for you. And that is al gore. Who did have this tight legal challenge. Everyone remembers frustrating. For both sides in the run up to it and then of course frustrating for the person losing so narrowly having won more votes overall total across america. Al gore take a look now the. Us supreme court has spoken. Let there be no doubt while. I strongly disagree with the court's decision. I accept it. I accept the finality of this outcome. Which will be ratified next monday. In the electoral college and tonight for the sake of our unity as a people and strength of our democracy. I offer my concession. If i may be a little optimistic here at the end of the week michael ask you to guide us. What would you as someone who cares deeply about america. What would you tell citizens both parties neither party whatever. What is incumbent upon the rest of us to do if we never get that concession from this president. What do we do from here together. We just say the. Donald trump is a gross aberration. Get him out out the door. The door doesn't hit him on the way out on the twentieth of january and say we demand our leaders that they do. What all those other candidates that you show tonight did show some graciousness and understand that democracy is more important. Listen to what al gore said. He didn't say. I agree with the supreme court decision in bush v gore. He says for the sake of our democracy. I offer my concession. Most canada's most presidents love democracy want to unite the country. Donald trump is a gross aberration and exception to that tradition. Soon he'll be gone. Michael beschloss gets the word on that. Thank you sir.
Trump, Biden make final campaign push with less than a week before Election Day
"Time next week, we'll be sorting through what we know of results. Amazing. We're getting close will be sorting through a lot. So in these final days, we do the itineraries. Tell us anything about the race. Tell us a lot. They show who's on offense. Who's on defense President Trump was in Nebraska yesterday, fighting for the one electoral vote that the Omaha area congressional District Awards polls show Biden up there. Even as Trump is expected to win the state as a whole. The president is making repeated trips to the states that put him in the White House, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, He needs to hold them to win a second term. And beyond that he's just going everywhere. Arizona today trying to put a dent in the steady national lead that Biden has built, and at the same time, Biden went to Georgia yesterday. That's a place Democrats have not won since 1992. But they're getting closer and closer in recent elections, and early voting trends indicate a lot of younger first time voters are showing up and Democrats feel like that could be the key to winning. Then, later this week, Biden goes to Iowa. His running mate, Kamala Harris, is going to Texas. And all of this underscores thie different routes to 270 electoral votes that Biden has right now. Even though his campaign is certainly making sure to keep coming back to Pennsylvania and those other key states. They don't want to repeat 2016 and neglect those places, right? Well, that's where the candidates are. What are they saying? What's the message in these final days? I've been messaging has really been focused on leadership of using the perch of the White House to be more inclusive and unifying. Hey, went to warm Springs, Georgia yesterday. That's a place that Franklin Roosevelt spent so much time trying to recover from polio and then later on in life. I didn't give a speech there, drawing in Roosevelt and amplifying this message of resilience and hope. He also continued to criticize President Trump's lack of leadership confronting the pandemic here. He was later in the day in Atlanta. Or the 225,000 dead Americans because of covert 19. 7800 right here in Georgia. Millions of people are out of work on the edge. I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel of Donald Trump has given up And, by contrast, here's President Trump in Omaha last night, we will get rid of this whole thing. We will get rid of this virus. It'll be very you watch. It's going to happen very quickly, and we're goingto have our country back and the whole world is going to be coming back. President. Trump, of course, was hospitalized than recovered. And since then he's double down this message that the virus is not so bad, but that's not stacking up against the reality of record numbers of cases in recent days. Especially in places like the Midwest where where President trump wass and hospitalizations air up as well? Scott. What one issue That's come up a lot recently, especially Pennsylvania's fracking. I know it's an issue you actually covered in a former life. Can you talk us through this issue and what what it's about? Yeah. President Trump has really been seizing on comments that Biden made in the last debate that he wants to phase out fossil fuels like oil and gas. Biden does want to limit future permits for fracking on federal land, but not ban it as a whole. The president thinks this is something that can really hurt barging in Pennsylvania. I think there's a lot of reasons why it might not be the powerful argument that the president thinks he is just to take through them quickly. The industry slowed down a lot in recent years from its peak in Pennsylvania. There's a lot of wind and solar activity and in booming business there and maybe most importantly, it's always been controversial in Pennsylvania because of environmental concerns, and that's especially the case in the eastern part of the state. Where there's a lot of votes.
Joe Biden speaks to crowd of supporters at Atlanta drive-in event
"To go until Election Day, and Democrat Joe Biden spent the day in a traditionally a red state. The last time a Democrat won the presidential contest in Georgia with 1992. But former vice President Joe Biden believes he and a pair of Senate candidates conflict that trend because something's happening here in Georgia and across America. A drive up rally in Atlanta, Biden continued his criticism of President Trump's Corona virus response, accusing the administration of waving the white flag. He says going to go away. We're learning to live with it. I told him we're not learning living. You're asking people have learned to die with it. At an earlier of it. In Warm Springs, Georgia, Biden decided that town's former resident President Franklin Roosevelt, is a model to unite the country.

"Never know what court packing Quick back. Never saw that's true to Joe Biden. That's true. I mean, you are you going to level with the American people over whether or not if you're elected president? You and your Democratic colleagues will pack the U. S Supreme Court. Franklin Roosevelt tried to Joe and didn't work too well for him. Do you think that as a first term president, you have the chops of FDR? I mean, he could have really hit him with something like that. And he didn't trying trying. I don't know. He's trying a dancer, too. That is he thinks he's going to insulate. His position on that by putting some sort of bipartisan panel looks way response to going public. That means Joe you you don't have the guts to you don't have the courage to level with the American people and tell them what you want, right? That's right. That's right. But that one was glad. I'm sorry. I just wish he had said I wish Trump did one thing. And I wish he had talked about the the fracking policy and how they clamp down in 2014 on American companies, while at the same time they help Ukraine to expand and deregulate the fracking. In that nation at the same time, and that's right. After Hunter Biden became a board member. That's really important time like all the other.

"Welcome to cats Miss and Mysteries. I'm kept crumb today real Ruckus Ray. I know you were watching the quote debate intensely. What was your takeaway? Well kid, there were a lot of subtleties and that's what real Ruckus it's all about separating the chaff from the wheat, but the obvious messages will be rehashed over and over the fowl obvious things that were said by Mister Trump and mr. Biden you can catch on your podcast and mass media and and wherever you take in your news, but what I'm going to do is I'm gonna forget about my fact-checkers and forget about my constitutional historical professors and I'm going to talk about one key message. Okay, r a little trepidation. What would that message be that message is vote and I'm going to cover a lot of interesting territory on this kit. All right. We'll take it away Ray. Okay with all and I've just said talking to mr. Crum and the back of your head. The question comes out. Why vote now, this was something that was it was his life on by both the president and the vice president. Mr. Trump and mr. Biden. So I I asked a question. Why vote most of us walk around in a naively Elevate wage state of impunity. No one is going to forcibly tell us what to do or limit where we can go. Nobody is going to kick down our door or drain our bank account. But this moment in time there is a raised awareness of civil rights now hang in with me on this because I'm bringing it all to him ahead to a point. This might be illustrated by peaceful protest wage. The civil rights that is these folks would declare their First Amendment right of freedom of speech now, if you're pro-nra, then you might cite the Second Amendment of the Constitution the right page. To bear arms these and many other protections come from a piece of paper the Constitution and yet if not enforce the Constitution becomes meaningless Le meaningless still may I ask you to question? Why vote if we allow the provisions of the Constitution to be ignored just once and only a single part because we agree with the ideology and other people in charge at any given moment in time, then you might as well start a racing aspects of the Constitution that you and they don't agree with thus rendering our constitutional democracy damaged again, I ask why vote a damaged and ignored Constitution like a bad case of poison oak may seem superficial at first but not burn that poison oak and inhale the smoke what was once superficial is now internal and damaging your lungs the problem, is that a damaged Constitution like damaged lungs Mekong. Around for a long time without a quick fix the question why vote now evolves into who do you vote for? Who do I put in a position of power? Well Article 2 of The Constitution is impossibly vague about the president's Powers. But if we were to look back over the past one hundred years there would be no denying an increase in what are called executive powers powers that bypass Congress you would see that presidents during that hundred year. Ruled by executive power rather than by Consulting with off and getting approval by the Constitution as a constitution says and with these executive powers, they direct a massive administrative state with jurisdiction over everything from Environmental Policy to regulation of the airwaves throughout the last hundred years presidents of waged undeclared war without Congressional confirmation. This would include Harry Truman in North birth. Korea President Richard Nixon and Cambodian President Bill Clinton in Bosnia Franklin Roosevelt imprisoned over 100,000 Americans during World War II numerous presidential called in federal troops to suppress working-class inserections, which ended in American death recently President George W bush secretly authorized spying on Americans inside the United States without any review from the courts these unregulated Powers accrue overtime and remain as a part of the Office of the President Bush is why it's important to not just vote but to examine who you are voting for and perhaps asking how will they address these unopposed Powers executive powers off then a constitution and political scholars believe there is a very real chance of our democracy failing In Our Lifetime with tyranny taking his place. That means somebody could kick in your wage. Or somebody could drain your bank account. Someone could tell you when and where you can go the fourth President of the United States. I was James Madison said factions formed public opinion spreads quickly particularly on issues that evoke ideology and passion people become polarized and look for opinions that mirror existing beliefs and isn't that where we are now as a country as people forming ideology based on passion and political opinions that mirror existing beliefs, so I say vote and vote carefully because a person you put in power maybe the first nail in the coffin of our constitutional democracy think about it off and remember question conventional wisdom, and don't believe everything you think.

"Seven seven three eight one three eight one one there is a series of decisions that occurred during the Franklin Roosevelt administration with the Supreme Court but eventually give rose about everything you wanted terms of centralized economic power you're not hearing about this from anybody so you'll hear about it for me now all you have to do is take your copy men in black all these books are written for a reason and follow along with me if you will because you'll know more than every single news person and commentator on TV and radio except those that cherry pick my monologues in nineteen thirty seven the national labor relations board versus Jones and Laughlin steel corporation the Supreme Court ruled that quote intrastate activities that is activities with in the state only that have such a close and substantial relation to interstate commerce that their control as a central or appropriate to protect that commerce from burdens and obstructions within Congress's power to regulate so the legal stage was now set as I wrote for a massive expansion the Commerce Clause and federal government control over the market place yes my fellow conservatives and some use pseudo federalist sat there how are you going to square the circle with the Supreme Court the safe virtually every one of which I oppose by the way here's the kicker in nineteen forty two the court used a case called record versus filbert in infamous case for that very purpose Roscoe filbert owned and operated a small dairy farm in Ohio every year he would use a section of his land to grow weak portion of the wheat was sold a portion was fed to livestock which were also sold and a portion was used to make flour and the rest was used for seating the following year in every respect Thoburn sale or use of his weed occurred within and wholly and solely within the state of Ohio in nineteen forty two Philbin was assessed a penalty of a hundred seventeen dollars and eleven cents for exceeding the marketing quota established for as far it was part of the federal agricultural chessmen act of nineteen thirty eight Thorburn challenge the paneling court in the case reached the Supreme Court he said this have to do with interstate commerce incredibly justice Robert Jackson writing for a unanimous court well that Congress could regulate the amount of weight that the farmer grew on his own farm the court reasoned that Fulbourn sweet affected interstate commerce even though none of it ever left the state of Ohio the court's rationale was one filled bring group excess wheat on his farm as determined by marketing quota established by the federal agricultural Jesmyn act of nineteen thirty eight to fill bring use that excess week defeat is livestock three because of the excess weight sober when not have to purchase wheat on the open market for by not purchasing weed on the open market Philbin was affecting interstate commerce you believe that Mister Rogers because he was self sufficient that meant he would be buying wheat from others including from other states so was a ruse was a pretext to empower president Franklin Roosevelt just hold this unconstitutional statute the agriculture aspen act of nineteen thirty eight so the Interstate Commerce Clause became the Commerce Clause can hardly be denied the court wrote that a fact of such volume and viability as home consume week whatever substantial influence on price and market conditions this may arise because being a marketable condition such wheat overhangs the market if induced by rising prices tends to flow into the market and check price increases but if we assume that it is never market it supplies a need of the man who grew it which would otherwise be reflected by purchases in the open market home grown wheat in this sense competes with the wheat in commerce the stimulation of commerce is a use of the regulatory function quite as definitely as prohibitions or restrictions let me read that sentence to you again the stimulation of commerce is a use of the regulatory function quite as definitely as prohibitions or restrictions there on so if you look at the constitution none of this powers granted to the federal government but the federal government has been using this power since nineteen forty two almost eighty years and it is shocking to hear what all these people are arguing one side to the other like this never happened Andrew Cuomo supports the new deal doesn't he supports Franklin Roosevelt he supports the Roosevelt court does any he supports the decision and in the Phil bring case which has maximize the ability found federal government to regulate every damn thing that occurs in your home they're not even suggesting that we reject this case with the Supreme Court of course people talk to the obamacare case which was decided on a in an abusive span of the tax clause of the constitution I'll say there they said you're not required to purchase anything in commerce and they'd be right but that's not what we're talking about here that's not what we're talking about here nineteen seventy one and Perez versus the United States the Supreme Court upheld certain sections of the cut cut a consumer credit protection at making loan sharking a federal offense despite the fact these activities were purely within the state it was an eight to one decision eight to one and I can go on so I talked about the spending and I don't like these cases I don't like him in the least when I wrote men in black I tacked the court was dishonest intellectually dishonest because once you buy a bond yeah why not one fifty I got his hands on the Supreme Court everything changed and so you got these results oriented decisions Woodrow Wilson said the way we're going to advance the revolution of progressivism is through the courts question how they advance in other ways too so you have the spending power with the federal government can in fact influence the policies of states if those states except federal monies that's been going on forever the Supreme Court upheld that sometime ago and now you have the Commerce Clause it's called the interstate Commerce Clause but it's really interesting to us I just read to you almost eighty years of this where the federal government can regulate what takes place within states now all these new federalists on the left don't object any other they want single payer health care even if the state wants to but that doesn't matter does it matter and I read this National Review editorial and think it do they even know the Supreme Court case didn't even know what the hell's going on you should at least have enough intellectual integrity to state what these decisions are some of them one of them says an object to it and explain the we don't expect the Republican or conservative or president of ours to use them already here to them when it comes to such a thing as quote unquote opening the economy but it's not a far leap at all for the president to say will burn these other cases the Supreme Court has said I can regulate what goes on in the states if it affects interstate commerce and certainly closing so many of the business the vast number of businesses in California New York New Jersey Connecticut this state that state so we're clearly affects interstate commerce of course you can say that not based on anything I believe based on what the court is set so while it's true is John you writes about police powers within the state and he's right police powers what is or is not legal within the state in the exercise of those police powers including economic police powers that's absolutely true but he seems to be stuck pre nineteen forty two so much intellectually that's right I want to be but that's not what we are is it if the federal government can regulate that kind of pain you have on your home my past the state's and punish you and penalize you if you don't comply if the federal government can regulate a pond in your backyard and call it navigable waters and put you in prison if you don't comply if the federal government can can regulate your automobile and so you never drive outside the state if the federal government can effectively regulate almost any commerce not all but almost any commerce that takes place within the boundaries of a single state and make the argument as they did in sober because it affects interstate commerce your lack of commerce affects interstate commerce then from again you for the litigation group of other department of justice the president takes on a state what is your argument that's all well and good but a president can't say if you don't open this factory this factory these businesses such as fourth he can't say that's gonna affect interstate commerce clearly it affects the federal budget clearly it affects the federal budget we just spent trillions of dollars to subsidize and provide relief to speak to businesses and individuals as a result of what individual states have done that clearly affects interstate commerce for an all powerful president don't blame me blame your Supreme Court blame the Democrats blame the progressives blame FDR don't blame me I'm just telling you what a good litigator would do and I'm just telling you that will like it or not and I don't a president has far more power in this regard then a lot of these numbers because they're sending when he says he has total authority that's not correct but my suggestion is he probably has a hell of a lot more power than people are willing to admit critically on the left the left knows about these cases you know some of you even pass over some you believe in Easter the left believes in the Supreme Court that's their god when they agree with that it's they got when they disagree with that it's their dental but their secularist for the most part not all but for the most part so they know this in these cases backwards and forwards but they're not gonna tell you about it because Donald trump's president they want Joe Biden who's now talking about being a progressive he said topping many Bernie Sanders staff he's just hired Bernie Sanders foreign policy staff would you think about the he's hiring how do you get the single payer health care how the hell do you have all these centralized top down decisions from Washington DC it was these these group of cases in particular that occurred during the new deal and Biden says he wants a new new deal he doesn't talk about federalism none of the Democrats running for president talk about federalism not a single news person on CNN or MSNBC or really anywhere talks about federalism they laugh about a tenth amendment Thurgood Marshall left that the temperament he said all the tenth amendment is a statement of fact that there's no real legal significance.

"Of the great attacks on our constitutional system and there were many under Franklin Roosevelt the hero of the Democrat left in this country with the attack on the Supreme Court nine seats on the Supreme Court it's not in the constitution but that's been the tradition Roosevelt doesn't like the court because a majority of the court is knocking down his rather radical programs as unconstitutional not fitting in one of the boxes one of the articles of the constitution so decides well I can fix that I'll add five seats what happens right he well he was very upset that the Supreme Court struck down the national recovery act and the gore cultural adjustment and so in others too and so he had no appointees to the Supreme Court during his first term that's rare usually presidents he fixes that later right he sure touch fix that eight out of nine right eight out of nine he ultimately pointed it out of the nine seats but in nineteen thirty six he won an overwhelming reelection against alf Landon in fact governor Landon the Republican opponent was from Kansas he could an agricultural state he couldn't even carry his own state well Roosevelt once the agricultural adjustment act in some form to continue and so what he wants to do is fix pack the Supreme Court if you can get up to fifteen which would only get him six six under some circumstances five or six he could then Kerry more legislation through and so he has a bill with he is promoting to pack the Supreme Court he uses the influence he has that southern senators and others instead of using that for say a federal anti lynching bill or something like that he uses it to pack the Supreme Court well for a while it goes well he calls in various senators and congressmen the Senate in this case is the is the key group and he is is telling him get bring subsidies to their area of the vote supporters cultural trying to buy their support again exactly needs Claude pepper being one from the salt pepper was the congressman from Florida right there's also senator right he was later yeah and what happens well it goes well for awhile but then there began to be these questions he over here over reaches for example he you have three branches of government you have of course the Supreme Court you have the presidency but then you have Congress and the Senate in particular you have Roosevelt attempting successfully to pick the next Majority Leader the Democrat who the man he picked senator Barkley of Kentucky one thirty eight to thirty seven within the Democratic Party and Roosevelt in effect bought the votes in which he called on people who owed him favors to make sure Barkley was the one thus you have a reveled in the Senate because they say look the president has the executive branch and he now wants the Supreme Court and he's taken our brand she's interfering there and there began to be a rebellion within the Democratic Party against him north and south this wasn't just southerners Burton Wheeler of Montana senator was against him very much do all across an old believe it was over well mainly defeated could not go forward well if you want to watch more I guess they re run it on Saturday but it's very very well was my now it's meant tomorrow will be a special announcement about this coming Sunday show which I cannot announce until tomorrow another big deal I think you'll agree let us go to Charles Carbondale Pennsylvania the great W.

"Franklin Roosevelt's presidential yacht he really had a good heart especially in this instance he wanted to give it to the March of dimes to be preserved as a national shrine but unfortunately the March of dimes was concerned over at the time maintenance cost and they had to regretfully declined the offer of FDR's presidential yacht as a gift but Mike I did some math and this is pretty interesting if in nineteen eighty four Elvis paid fifty five thousand dollars for the Potomac with inflation that would be about four hundred and thirty five thousand dollars today that's a lot of money yeah I am very proud of you but first of all if that be first wanted man I don't know where the Potomac is now I should go to if he had bought it for fifty five thousand dollars it would be worth way more than four thirty five thousand dollars today okay so you're not at Barrie on math is wrong know your mother's right translation is for hunger well yeah yeah you can buy a yacht for for her thirty five thousand dollars today let's that's true yeah well I mean grand it would be an old yacht but still it would be it would have been Roosevelt's yacht so that's a big deal okay so let's just look at it from a yacht perspective them a yacht in nineteen sixty four compared to a yacht today huge price difference yet it's still the same vessel type to accomplish the same thing this question thing is very real it's extremely real we think about it I did it in in my terms you know when I turn sixteen I could buy a gallon of gas for less the dollar right and that's not a great example because it fluctuates based on things other than inflation but still when you take a look at paying over two dollars or three dollars or in certain point of time over four dollars for the same gallon gas look at things like milk look at a house right go back and for most of our clients look at what they paid for their first home her to what it would cost to buy a retirement home now the the numbers are obviously huge and people know why but they don't really sit down and do the math on inflation so we tend to live in the now and take a look at what something costs today and I see this going on with a lot of financial plans that the people are putting together and they're planning for an income that's good in today's dollars but it doesn't take into consideration inflection moving forward things in a cost a lot more down the road and what I would encourage people to do is just think of what things cost thirty years ago versus what the cost now whether it's your house whether it's your car whether it's clothing groceries electricity what you know whatever just go back to that point in time then imagine that if your in your a late fifties early sixties at this point you probably have at least thirty years left in retirement if your in your seventies you probably have twenty years left in retirement inflation is going to have a very very big impact and if you're not incorporating things like taxes inflation fees into the portfolios the efficiency of your portfolio you may very well come up short in the future you have to allow for all those things Christian all the financial plans that we put together we're taking all that into consideration we assume three percent inflation moving forward technically that's a little aggressive inflation rates aren't that high but if when we put together a financial plan for an individual we assume inflation rates are three percent moving forward we're technically being conservative or gift and probably giving them more money than they need moving forward but then we also do calculations for them about taxes and how to reduce taxes moving forward and be efficient and if we also take into consideration things like requirement distributions and all that moving forward now you're getting into a financial plan that makes sense and and time and time again I see individuals with financial plans that only take into consideration the underlying and right they're just saying Hey listen if you invest this way your projected average and return moving forward is X. amount that's great but if you don't take in consideration the fees which are gonna reduce that the taxes which are gonna reduce that inflation which is going to reduce that you run into problems down the road so you just have to be very very careful and you know going back to something as simple as this yacht Kristin yes fifty five thousand dollars seems like nothing freon today would be worth for thirty five if it if not more we have to be very very careful moving forward and and that and that's why in again I'm a broken record every weekend here back in financial planning is extremely important you have to understand your money understand what is likely to do moving forward and then just take control that don't settle for hang in there approach person our clients are looking for that they want a relationship with an investment adviser is to be very active in managing their portfolio be proactive not reactive so if you'd like more information about what we do and how we do it and you're concerned about things like fees taxes inflation performance you don't want to hang in their portfolio give us a call will sit down and do an analysis of your current portfolio will help you get more efficient there but at the same time will put together a truly comprehensive financial plan that shows you all the steps you need to be successful in retirement so Christians is most useful for individuals under age fifty five or older you've already got that nest a you're getting ready to transition into retirement or you're currently retired this planning if you don't already have it or you're not satisfied with what you have and it could be very beneficial so just give us a call in the next ten minutes so we can do that for you complementary inflation definitely a key part of a true retirement plan and you need to

CVM Harry Hopkins well we're going to get the everything hang in there Harry Hopkins was FDR's closest friend and confidante and I'm not going to do I. Harry Hopkins is your life but he actually moved into the White House at the request of Franklin Roosevelt we lived there and he clashed with numerous cabinet members I mean history not even has this Hopkins one point was involved in a back channel on farm puffs by passing normal diplomatic channels if they are signed him to meet with Churchill even though we held no official position and when reporters asked the president Hopkins was to be the next ambassador to Great Britain rose one answered you know Harry isn't strong enough for that job recent events however have left a Sears voiding communication between the two nations bachelor Joseph P. Kennedy senior had resigned because he was so very sympathetic to Adolf Hitler who is the British ambassador from the United States lord Lowthian had died just days after rose well received Churchill's have a letter unable to meet with his British counterpart himself Roosevelt told the press he was sending how can someone so that he can talk to trick shot like an Iowa farmer he didn't send the secretary stay the mission was indicative of the special trucks Roosevelt put in Hopkins now he had other advisers but econ Hopkins perfect company and like to discuss important matters with them inform and Hopkins was an swimmingly loyal to the president who in turn often heated his friend's advice on significant policy issues now Hopkins was involved with the president of the nineteen forty six he became very ill he would die in nineteen forty six at a relatively young age he fought with Harold H. Harold Ickey senior the interior department when he was involved in setting up much of the new deal he fought with the Rexford Tugwell and Henry Morgenthau we're very close to the president obviously Morgan thou cabinet treasury secretary not everyone was happy with the arrangement helicase resented happens inside a raw the two remained at odds for years for years no wonder Wilkie what rose Welch Republican opponent nineteen forty S. reservoir white place such faith in markets especially when he knew others resented president told well okay that if he ever became president you'll learn what a lonely job this is you'll discover the need for someone like Harry Hopkins who asked for nothing except to serve you in many ways that's Rudy Giuliani in his relationship with the president as it applies to Ukraine another says Russia defining the present knows they point out here Winston Churchill's initial reaction upon receiving word of Hopkins impending visit was who who's that and British officials were initially taken aback by Hopkins rumpled appearance but they soon accepted him he seemed to the British to be the stereotypical American Hopkins his visit harden of the British citizens and so forth now for his part Hopkins was struck by the spirit of the British people and so Hopkins was if you will a shadow secretary of state a shadow secretary of state he he would promote the bill that will provide Britain and eventually several other allied nations desperately needed war material with that we crying payment up front skirting the tenants who the nineteen thirty nine neutrality act it was vehement opposition Congress the lend lease plan there was no statutory support for what the president and his Harry Hopkins had been doing but they did it anyway Hopkins in nineteen forty one was the principal go between then between Roosevelt and Churchill the principal go between not sectors stay not an Assistant Secretary state not a former bass or not during the years nineteen forty one to forty three Hopkins can usually be found in his room at the White House working in a bathrobe with letters papers telegrams and diplomatic dispatches strewn across his bed as the war progressed Hopkins health group progressively worse nevertheless he was still capable of making quick an insightful decisions late in nineteen forty four of the tide of the war now favor the allies Churchill and Stalin were preparing for a meeting to discuss control of southeastern your busy with his reelection campaign Roosevelt was unable to attend and decided to central electric chill represent US interests Hopkins foresaw trouble with the arrangement in order the transmission of Roosevelt's cable to Stalin stopped behind Roosevelt's back if they are found out about it any rewrote the cable and thank happens for preventing him from making a serious mistake Harry Hopkins had an unprecedented position in the rose by the ministry not merely a chief of staff not merely even Churchill secretary John Colville WA considering Hopkins an honorable man and sincere idealist believe he trusted the wording good will of Stalin to an improved extent as did rose about in the state department and so let me suggest this ladies and gentleman Franklin Roosevelt should be impeached posthumously of course retroactively.
