The 'Keep Nine' Amendment

"A little idea of exactly what your organization keep. Nine. Is it? Nine is a bipartisan organization that is working to persuade Congress to propose what would be the 28th amendment to the United States Constitution That would say the Supreme Court of the United States is nine justices. Be the shortest amendment in the Constitution, and it would prevent the idea that some people are talking about which is to APAC. The Supreme Court the Supreme Court, is it our most important institution? The United States Constitution is an amazing document, and it creates a balance between the executive legislative and judicial branches. And the Supreme Court is the branch that has been called on time and again to resolve disputes between the executive branch and the legislative branch and to resolve issues that otherwise might Tear the country apart. So it's a critical institution for the survival of American democracy. And the most important element of the Supreme Court is that it is independent. It can't be controlled by the president. It can't be controlled by Congress. And throughout our history. There have been people in the presidency and in Congress that I wanted to destroy the independence of the court. And it may be the most important issue of this election. Whether or not this election results in the election of folks Who want to preserve the independence of the Supreme Court for the election of the folks who want to destroy it. Now the president Any president has no control over the Supreme Court, but it can have a lot of influence because let's face it. President Trump has two picks to the Supreme Court already and Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. There's still two picks from President Obama's era. There's two from the George W. Bush era on there, There's two from the Clinton era on there and one remaining one from the George H. W. Bush era. So let's just Those ugh that if President Trump is reelected, he could get possibly two, maybe three more Supreme Court justice opportunities coming up here, with Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Clarence Thomas, both rumored to be considering retirement. I think Stephen Breyer as well somewhere down the line, but in the next few years, so that proves the importance of the Supreme Court and how much influence we could have for 50 years going forward from the Trump Eric. Correct, Absolutely. But there's an even more fundamental issue more than 100 years, the Supreme Court In an independent institution. Congress has not changed its size. But if after this election we end up with Ah, somebody that wants to pack the Supreme Court. We could end up with not just the names of people on the Supreme Court changing but the nature of the Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court became a political football between the two parties, with one party packing it when they were in charge and another party packing and when they were in charge, we would lose one of the most important institutions in the country. And that independence is mohr important, then who is appointed and we're very fortunate right now, in that both candidates appear to say that they don't want a packed court. Trump is attack court packing. And Biden said, I don't want a packed court either. But the problem is that there's some people on the Biden a team, including Kamala Harris, who said in the past that they like the idea of court packing and the Democratic Party platform. Includes language that says they favor court restructuring. And Senator Chuck Schumer has said that he might restructure the court if the court doesn't rule in ways that he likes. So there's a threat out there. And our appeal is two candidates in both parties who say that they don't want to pack the court to endorse the Keep Nine Amendment so that we are permanently protected against efforts to pack the court. And we think that's a critical issue that voters ought to care about because it will show what kind of governance we're gonna have over the next four years. If we have people who support to keep nine Amendment, we can rest assured that the court is not going to be packed. But if we have people who won't support to keep nine Amendment, we've gotta worry and so candidates for Congress candidates for the president. We think we ought to be asked. Do you support to keep nine Amendment because if they would pack it like you mentioned that would lead to political chaos The Supreme Court is always seen is at the institution that is more rational and steady and less fashionable, right and throughout our history, the biggest beneficiary of an independent Supreme Court are minorities because it's the Supreme Court that protects the unpopular rights of minorities. Every once in a while, you get a wave in Congress, so we got to do something. People say Well, it could affect minorities and sometimes in Congress. They don't care and the classic example of the Supreme Court standing up for minorities was almost 200 years ago, when Andrew Jackson decided that he was going to see the land of the Cherokee Indians and deport them all. The Oklahoma and the Supreme Court stood up and said, it's wrong. Unfortunately, at that time, Andrew Jackson said, Well, how many regiments does the Supreme Court have and ignored their ruling? Now? That wouldn't happen today, The Supreme Court has enough power to resist that kind of defiance. But if a president could say, Well, I don't like your decision. I'm going to pack the Supreme Court put my own people on the rights of minorities would be AH, gravely at risk. There were other presidents in the past have threatened to stack the Supreme Court as well. Back in the early 19 hundreds correct right. The most recent memory was Franklin Roosevelt in 1937. He had just won an overwhelming victory in 1936. Hey, had overwhelming majorities in both houses of Congress. And so he decided that he was going to use that opportunity to put some of his allies on the Supreme Court because at the time they were ruling against some of the legislative proposals that he had made and what he didn't expect was a outpouring of public opposition in both parties. And it basically destroyed his ruling coalition in his second term, and our message to both parties is don't go too far proposed your policies past them in Congress, but preserve the independence of the Supreme Court. Because if you try to upset that you're risking all the other items in your agenda. How did they come to nine as the final number in the Supreme Court? Well, it's very interesting history for the first almost 90 years of American history. The Supreme Court was, in fact, a political football and the Republican majority after the civil War was stuck with a Supreme Court that had been appointed by pro slavery president prior to the civil war, And so they basically was a naked power grab. They expanded the size of the court put their own people on. And you can argue that that may have been the right strategy after after a civil war, but very soon thereafter, the tradition grew At the Supreme Court ought to be independent was a tradition honored by both parties after 18 69 and people thought, you know people would honor tradition and in 1937. When FDR said, I'm going to pack the court, it was a great shock to people Now. It's interesting that FDR also broke another long standing tradition in American politics. He ran for a third term, and there had been a tradition ever since the founding of the republic that presidents only ran for two terms. And what happened in that case was, there was a public outcry and the 22nd amendment to the Constitution, which limits presidents to two terms was a response to Roosevelt's running for a third term. And our view is that just as the 22nd amendment put into the Constitution, a longstanding tradition, a new 28th amendment that says the Supreme Court of United States should be nine justices is the right way together. NT the independence of the Supreme Court for the future and is keep nine dot org website the best place for people to go to either support your idea for an amendment or just get more information. Absolutely. And if you go to that website, you'll see an E mail address where you can email us with specific questions or if you want to get involved in this effort. We're hoping that in the next two months, an army of citizens will AH demand that candidate for Congress for Senate and for the White House will answer the very simple question. Do you support to keep Nine Amendment? To keep the Supreme Court at nine justices and by the way, our hero on this issue was Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has said she opposes court packing and she thinks nine is a good number for the Supreme Court.

The great broadband divide: Living without high-speed internet access

"Austin, Texas, So many kids weren't online last semester, but the school system had to print and male 40,000 homework packets a week. They resorted to fill in school buses with portable WiFi hot spots and parking them near apartment complexes where a lot of people have no broadband service. Now, you might say Austin shining star of high Tech American cities. According to geese own Austin illustrates the biggest broadband problem of all the vast majority of Americans who don't have broadband Internet access is because they can't afford it because the price is too high. And sure enough, the U. S. Has the third most expensive broadband Internet in the developed world. Mostly because there's not much competition. It's just a money problem and not a problem of putting wires in the ground. We should be complaining about both the lack of actual network infrastructure. In many places, but also the cost. The thing is, we fix problems like this before. In 1930 for only 11% of rural Americans had electricity. President Franklin Roosevelt created the rural Electrification Administration. New lines going up almost everywhere. At the rate of 500 miles a day, and within 20 years, 90% of those homes had cheap, reliable electricity. Now. Over the years, the government has come up with a basket of programs designed to help with Internet affordability and accessibility. Unfortunately, sewn says they haven't always worked as designed. The FCC has now for well over a decade paid out tens of billions of dollars to rule broadband companies to build Internet access. In places where there isn't any And the fact of the matter is is that the government has gotten a very, very poor return on its investment. This FCC and I'll even say you know, the FCC that I work for has not done a very good job of demanding that these companies tell us what they've actually built with the money they've gotten. This is not making the FCC looked too good. I don't think it's incompetence. I think part of it is resource is you know the the FCC staff has shrunk enormously. In the last decade or so, where to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the FCC chairman a Jeep. I declined our request for an interview. But in a written response, the FCC says We ensure efficient cost effective spending on subsidies for rural broadband. Earlier this year, Congress passed a law requiring the FCC to improve the way it measures Internet access. But the FCC says that nothing will happen unless Congress also pays for it. The FCC simply does not have the $65 million we need to start the process and implement that law through its first year. Meanwhile, the agency is promoting new technologies like five g, cellular and low earth orbit satellites that might address our broadband problems someday. But for now, most seem to agree on one thing. Especially these days, the Internet should be considered a necessity.

Absent From Stimulus Packages: Overhauling Energy, Climate Programs

"Some countries are literally printing money to rescue their economies from the ravages of covid nineteen. The UN and some others argue that some of that money should be spent to fight climate change. The European Union has a plan to do that. The US so far does not despite the fact that this country has a tradition of overhauling our energy sector to promote economic recovery. Here's NPR's Jeff Brady. Consider President Franklin. Roosevelt's new deal a century ago, electricity may not come to mind, but a big element was building massive hydroelectric dams on the Columbia River then the government paid woody Guthrie to write songs about. Colonial. Power returning our. Law. The legacy of those dams is mixed. They forever changed the environment, but they also brought electricity to rural America during the Nineteen Twenties and Nineteen Thirties about ninety percent of the US. Farms had no electricity. Ted Case is executive director of the Oregon. Rural Electric Cooperative Association his Co. up. Members exist because the new deal brought utility, Poles and power lines down many miles of dusty Rhodes and connected homes to the grid that day was the most incredible day for a lot of families when they finally got to throw. Throw that kerosene lantern out the window which many people did decades later? President Obama was sworn into office amid an economic downturn. His stimulus plan included ninety billion dollars that helped reshape the US energy landscape. It's an investment that will double the amount of renewable energy produced over the next three years solar and wind grew quickly, and now the cheapest source of electricity in some places, but hundreds of thousands of renewable energy jobs have been lost. Scientists say carbon emissions must be reduced dramatically to avoid the worst effects of. Of Climate Change, that requires significant changes at a time. The country already is spending a lot of money about three trillion dollars on relief packages so far Julian brave noise cat is with the group data for progress. It is irresponsible from like a very basic good government perspective to not have any of that money. Go to Queen Energy and fighting climate change noise cat says money should be spent creating jobs to build retrofit houses install rooftop, solar and deploy electric vehicles. Heather reams also is concerned about climate change, but. But her politics are more conservative and market focused. If we're talking about if you'RE GONNA put taxpayer money someplace, put it where you're going to get a good return, and that is in clean energy. Reams heads citizens for responsible energy solutions. She says there are bills. In Congress. That could become stimulus programs even with an administration that shows little interest in climate change they do recognize the economic value that clean energy brings the jobs that brings particularly to a lot of red states, so I think the business certainty. Trump's if you will any kind of political challenges, another idea has the support of some conservatives and big oil companies taxing carbon dioxide emissions I. Think it's fair to say that carbon taxes are economists favorite way of addressing climate change Yona. Marinescu is an economist at the University of Pennsylvania, but she says this would be a bad time to levy new taxes. She suggest the government invest lots of money in clean energy upfront, and then Levy carbon tax to pay for it when the economy recovers, it's one idea among many the point. Is that climate? Climate Change arguably is the biggest problem humans face now and fixing. It requires sweeping solutions at a time. The US's spending lots of money. It's a sad time, but also an opportunity to do investments that perhaps we didn't have the Mo-jo to get our act together and do before. Sometimes it takes a good crisis to finally move in a whole new direction just like the new deal. Here's what's different. Though after the Great Depression and the two thousand eight recession, the country had presidents who believed in fixing the big energy problems of

Is Shangri-La A Real Place?

"James Hilton was simply dreaming of a place that humans have yearned for since they I learned to yearn a heaven of sorts a Paradise Utopia Xanadu the garden of Eden Shambala Hilton a popular writer in the first half of the twentieth century named his Happy Place Shangrila and he made at wondrous in spiritual talking it high into the mountains in northwest Tibet. It was setting of his nineteen thirty three adventure. Novel lost horizon which instantly became a worldwide bestseller. It was also made into a major Hollywood film. The legendary Frank CAPRA directed and Ronald Colman Jane Wyatt starred in Nineteen thirty seven from the moment lost horizon hit bookstore shelves Shangri la became synonymous with utopia back. Then it was an ideal a place to escape to during a time when the real world had just been through a global war in the Great Depression since then the simple idea of the place has sparked countless trips. Tibet journeys of faith and perseverance of hope and distant. Promise of supposed enlightenment and sometimes disappointment. It's kind of an amazing phenomenon considering that the place doesn't exist and it never has except for ten years or so when what's now called Camp David. The presidential retreat was founded under the name Shangrila by then President Franklin Roosevelt in nineteen forty two. Or at least that was the only time it's existed until recently but let's start at the beginning. Hilton reportedly did most of the research for his novel in the British Museum Library not far from his home in the northeastern part of London. He never actually visited Tibet. Instead he took inspiration for Shangri la from another utopian dream a place known for centuries as Shala we spoke with Ed Birnbaum who lectures on comparative religion mythology and wrote the way to Shambala in nineteen eighty. He said there was one. Sort of very very garbled version of the Shambala myth that Hilton Red and one of the Catholic explorers writings. But it wasn't an all clear. It was the sort of universal theme and at that time. Tibet was pretty much unexplored. So if you're going to look for hidden utopia that was an ideal place to do it. Shala is a Tibetan Buddhist legend about a Utopian Paradise far in the Northern Mountains of Asia. It said to be a spiritual place where people of all religions and backgrounds live together in harmony and also said to be the place from which when Warren Evil Engulf the rest of the world. A leader will emerge to defeat the forces of chaos and usher in a new age of peace and happiness. Shambala grows out of the Buddhist Teaching College Chakra or the wheel of time which states that the center of the universe. Mount Meru sometimes called Mount Subaru. Set to be well. North of Tibet. Birnbaum said people sort of looked at Tibet as this mysterious Utopian kind of place and the Tibetans themselves looked even farther north for that. Utopia Shambala if Hilton who died in nineteen fifty. Four was indeed modeling Shangri la after the Buddhist teachings of Shambala. It might paint him to learn what's happened to his imaginary wonderland because it's become real but not an particularly Buddhist way in two thousand one the Chinese government which is controlled. Tibet since late nineteen fifties changed the name of Zhongdian County to Shangri la for simple purpose to cash in on tourist dollars. Many areas and China had been vying for the right to change their names. Shangri la and took nearly a decade to decide on a winner. Zhongdian one out in. What the Guardian in two thousand six called one of the most day. She's rebranding exercises in history. Today the larger area Shangrila boasts say Shangrila resort a Hilton Garden Inn Shangrila and airport with daily flights to Beijing Shanghai and Lhasa. The capital of China's Tibet Autonomous Region in the heart of what Westerners now as Tibet visitors can tour the largest Betton Buddhist monastery in Yunan province. And when they're done they can cough down. Abreu at the Shangri la beer bar tagline beer made in heaven Tibet and the newly named Shangri la a draw for reasons other than tourist traps. Of course Tibet is known. After all is the roof of the world it shares the highest peak in the World Mount Everest with neighboring Nepal. Though that's a long way from Shangri La. The area's natural beauty is breathtaking. Which makes it a destination for outdoor levers. That's especially popular with Chinese tourists. It's harder for Westerners to secure visas to get there. But is this the Shangri La that James Hilton envisioned? Is What modern travelers expect. That it seems is probably up to the pilgrim. Birnbaum said there are different ways of going to Shambala to me what I found most interesting was the symbolism of it sort of reflects an inner journey

Hope and Worry Mingle as Countries Relax Coronavirus Lockdowns

"Again just to repeat I had to run through some things pretty quickly Germany is re opening all of its shops and allowing soccer Italy Spain and France have eased their lock downs after the hot spots in those countries have now seen a record low number of coronavirus cases something that my my point is that lockdowns are being lifted all over the world not just here in the in the United States and there is mounting pressure to keep states close to keep the lockdown on and in place in the United States primarily in Democrat run states and we all know what the reason for this is there is an ongoing effort to **** the American economic recovery if you want to call it that whatever the renewed economic activity is and it's it's breathtaking to behold it really has a people talk about we got across the aisle we gotta show people that we can work together we gotta have demonstrated that we can make sure the government can work and we we can't even unified on a pandemic we're not it does not actually does surprise me at all because I know Eric and laughed I know the backwards and forwards I know today's Democrat party and I and I know what their political objectives are I'm just telling you they don't care capitalism is taking a hit that's in fact there's some of the some things happening in this in this situation that they have been secretly hoping would happen some day somehow main socialist by design don't like capitalism they've been looking for ways to damage and destroy it this thing is come along it's a godsend to many people on the left and so your your your if you if you have people who consider the United States is the problem in the world because the United States is too big it's too big a superpower it's too big economically it's just not fair something like this comes along and can cut the United States down to size twenty people in this country most of the Democrat party who are all for it I don't believe me I don't but it it it may be something you don't want to just take a look at where states are shut down I will continue to be shut down where governors don't want to open them up ask what party they're in and ask what could the reasons for this continued lockdown and the continued destruction of people's economic fortunes and watch what could that be about what purpose does it serve because believe me it serves a purpose keeping a state walk down keeping people in financial ruin with no opportunity to go back to work it does serve a particular political objective and that objective of course beating Donald Trump in November it sounds simplistic to some of you but it is the case I was reading I mentioned earlier in the program you can guardian is a column here my somebody named Francine prose I never heard of her I don't even know she's a real person is a sort of name or whatever but the piece is entitled what Americans ever forgive trump for his heart was lack of compassion the some heavy is while the nation grieves the US president has spent less than five minutes expressing compassion for those who are suffering we can't help thinking how much less worried we would be if a humane competent well informed adult was making the decisions that affect us all now that intrigues me because I want to ask you just just point blank take everything that's happening and leave it in place everything that has happened everything that is happening and what you think the immediate future all the words do you think Major League Baseball will play this season do you think the NFL will kick off with fans in the stands whatever you think yes fine if you think you know whatever whatever you think of the current circumstances would you be thinking differently would you be less worried if somebody we're in the White House expressing compassion for people who are stuck when it change your attitude about any of this what are you against compassion all I'm not against conventional put words in my mouth I'm asking what good does it do in the context of what we're talking about here what by the way that what Americans ever forgive trump for his heart was lack of compassion where has it been established that is heartless so there's a there's a gigantic presumption this whole thing off which is companies are heartless SOB about Americans know it and trump needs to get their forgiveness quick because trump is making this worse trump is making those wars because he doesn't have any compassion for the people suffering the nation is grieving now what is trump doing what do you define compassion a whole bunch of different ways but can optimism being compassion I know that trump refuses they get caught up in pessimism he doesn't like it he doesn't want to be identified with it he want he doesn't he doesn't want to be involved in things that create panic so trump well often times be optimistic because he thinks that's far more productive and far more helpful for people then just sit there and wring his hands together and talk about how sandy is because there are certain things that you just assume nobody is happy with the number of people who have died here nobody is happy with the number of people are sick should you have to save that for people to understand that about you what we give you an example this happened when I was out you remember the brouhaha that erupted after trump at one of the briefings talked about the possibility of injecting Clorox or whatever was you remember the outrage over this you remember people talking about how dumb and stupid all my god how embarrassing trump actually all dirty looked at the score of queen and he's asking her to confirm they could someday shook people up with Marshall it's dangerous this guy is an absolute these stupid people were saying now what happened what happened is the trump was briefed on some news that was announced who who's the guy who was the what department wasn't wasn't FEMA somebody made an announcement at that briefing that they had discovered the virus doesn't do well in high temperatures it doesn't do well on services it lasts thirty seconds with disinfectant Clorox whatever it was well trump had been briefed on all that a mere couple of minutes before the briefing and start I don't believe Donald Trump actually thinks or thought or to shoot anybody up what Y. sol rocks what Donald Trump is is I can do what kind of person and if he here is that this virus is wiped out in thirty seconds with exposure to whatever it was Clorox then his mind is going okay so how do we apply that and he thinks out loud how do we apply that if that if that kills it then how do we apply that to people who have a deep thanks out loud he's not literally thinking of shooting people up with one of these disinfectants are and yet the assumption was that he was thinking that the assumption was that he saw store but any such a fool that he literally want to go grab a patient and get a syringe and put some parts in there and have doctor works should the person up in sap the virus he's not and yet everybody reacted to it as though he is that stupid the is that heart was that he is that I have encountered that side of Donald Trump won the day all of the state of the union and which Catherine I were his gas and I got the presidential medal of freedom you would not believe what all had to happen for me to get to Washington that day and none of it what happened were it not for him making it happen things that you would say are impossible to get done in two hours or three cannot do he did it all he's just he's a can do kind of person he doesn't have no aunt or something negative in his it is make up so we goes about these briefings yeah the briefer was the homeland security undersecretary for science in fact the bill Ryan was built brand came out told everybody what happened to the virus in high humidity and high temperatures and certain kinds of disinfectants and so forth all Donald Trump as a problem solver and he likes to encourage people he likes to inspire people he likes to get people moving and he does think things that a lot of people that can't be done candy any doesn't just sit there one second if he's dealing with somebody who thinks something can't be done he's going to try to tell it can the mistake here was to do this impromptu ad libbing in front of cameras but I guarantee you that had the cameras not been there had trouble learn this so he would have been asking the boys are some way we can apply this is there some way we can take what you've just learned here and apply it to the way we're treating people with the virus he doesnt mean shut him up with this impact of poison is there something to learn here whether we actually this was just so over the top you remember trump any of trump's foolish trump this trump slap it was so bad that trump himself his staff got you got to go out to you got to fix this so I went out there the next day in trump said I was being sarcastic I was being sarcastic with the media I was asking a sarcastic wit that's obviously not what he was doing hi I wish I had been in the meeting to formulate the strategy the procedure here for dealing with with this because believe me it could have been converted into a total positive the reason I bring all this up is because it we have a piece here in the UK guard it will Americans ever forgive trump for his heart was lacking the last thing Donald Trump is as heartless and the last thing he has none of his compassion it is the exact opposite Donald Trump believes everybody's capable of greatness he believes it everybody's capable of accomplishing things he doesn't believe in sitting around and rubbing people's shoulders and saying it's okay you suck you're never going to amount to anything but I'll make you feel better about it he doesn't believe in that inspiring people getting the most out of people particularly people work for him particularly for people that can't do the things that he needs done it is that he can't do himself he needs those people come through we can't help thinking how much less worried we would be if I humane competent well informed the doubt was making the decisions that affect this there's another pull cord from his face and yet we've learned that Franklin Roosevelt turned away refugees from Hitler's Europe we can still imagine how comforting it was for those who lived through the Great Depression hearing his radio speech also people were suffering in the Great Depression and lost everything but somehow listening to Roosevelt on the radio made him feel better maybe you've made them feel better but it did not change their circumstances my mother used to get real mad at me she make me eat everything on the plate I'm sure yours did too and if I didn't do it she would say things like you know there are people there are people on the other side of the house over in China starving they would let us is also mom let me ask if I eat everything on his plate or some Chinese kids going to be rubbing your stomach I feel so full now you know smart aleck you'll be quiet you don't set your mother that left I'm sorry this one to me how my eating something is going to fill up a bunch of chai com Bally's wow right sure really I'm just missed through real real folks and I

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.

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

Bernie Sanders won't admit it, but socialism is a liability

"He calls himself a democratic socialist so why did he start the democratic Socialist Party run on the democratic socialist line you know that's socialist run before including even against Franklin Roosevelt midwesterners Wisconsin Bernie Sanders doesn't right is endemic to run as a democratic socialist nobody ever asked him why he doesn't run as a democratic socialist instead he's trying to take down take over the already miserable Democrat party but I wonder about the what's the problem Mr calls grin I want you to clear a few lines I want any Bernie Sanders supporters know fakes real well just hang up on you to call this program Intel millions of people around the nation why you support Bernie Sanders and why we should support brings giving you an opportunity now that you'll never have again your candidates too much of a coward to come on this program or any of my programs that may be maybe one or two or three of his supporters will call in and explain themselves and explain what it is exactly Bernie Sanders once for the country I suspect we'll get nobody some challenging you to call I think it's important that you explain yourselves Bernie Sanders will come on this program because we have a serious discussion about his ideology and the declaration and the constitution and whether or not all of them can coexist which course they can't I want to know where the authority comes from to nationalize public utilities in nationalized healthcare whatever it is you don't cite some Supreme Court decision where's the authority in the constitution they never say to print quick decisions when they lose so I cite them when you win I'm talking about the constitution by the way speaking of that the constitution my wife and I saw the Clarence Thomas movie this weekend Mr petition it was fabulous absolutely fabulous and I learned more about Clarence Thomas then in before even having read his book because he elaborates on points one of the things you really gonna love about this I don't know if they're gonna run it additional days in the theaters or not I mean after all he's not was bare Ginsburg with a run it for months and Hollywood gets behind it and so forth but he he speaks in a straightforward common sense way it tells you exactly what took place in his life during the hearings and so forth and at the end of the movie everybody applauded uploaded this is a giant speaking of giants Clarence Thomas is a giant he believes in the family he believes in fidelity to the declaration and the constitution he believes in those words natural law natural rights which mean what god given unalienable rights god given puts things in proper perspective not Bernie Sanders given that Elizabeth Warren given god given and of course for the rest of left the secularists the status they cannot accept that they rejected otherwise their entire ideology falls apart first of all there's god can have that and secondly there the limits placed in the constitution on their power can have that in third this this huge problem called unalienable right I keep hearing these guys on the Senate floor Democrats I think we call them house managers another Democrat managers every Republican voted against it they're Democrat manage they're Democrat handlers the Democrat propagandists thrown through talk about democracy trump is a threat to our democracy in a democracy we have transparency and of course it's the opposite of everything they've done but that's not the point there's a huge distinction between a democracy and Republic democracy is extremely dangerous we've talked about this but underscore the point if you believe an unalienable rights any democracy they can't work together because that means people can vote to deny you your unalienable rights the whole purpose of a constitutional Republic is to secure your constitutional right to protect the from tyranny to any of the mob you see during the mob right now from tier any the few from whatever the Tierney is the constitution is like a protective shield to protect the individual on the civil society so they keep time in a democracy and direct elections in this sort of thing can I expand on this more tonight on live in TV but let me just touch this because we have a very odd thing going on in this country and one of the few who's willing to speak out against this I am not a populist populism which really had its first first the sort of systemic viewer eight or more tangible approach was in the eighteen late eighteen sixties early eighteen seventies even at a popular Sir people's party back then you see the distinction between those who believe in individual liberty in those who believe in centralized government becomes ambiguous if you're a populist what does that mean the people should rule now is some of the constitution says the people should rule they set up the Senate so the state legislatures choose the senators they know how to set it up if they wanted the people to vote that was change for the seventeenth amendment they set up the presidency so it's not a direct election so there's an electoral college what did they do that because they didn't want a popular quote unquote democracy a mob Akhras's the courts lifetime appointments I believe term limits but what I believe is beside the point they set up a court lifetime upon the only directly elected body is the house of representatives part of the Congress that's it if they believed in populism why would there be a Senate if they believe in populism why would you vote for judges would that be great not be disaster the states they have in most states it's a disaster you know more in Florida were driving through and it's election time for their judges vote for any robot ski District Court is nobody knows who the hell are need to brush it any Grabowski is then I reading his opinions now we're not a pure democracy we're not even a democracy and no this isn't about populism it's about constitutionalist and constitutionalism is about a polling individual right liberty god given right so you need a governing body unity governing system in a civil society who's going to call the shots is a diverse society there's a lot of people is a lot going on he got a lot of states and so forth so the constitution is the roadmap the constitution is what lays it out now if you read rediscovering Americanism by the way Mr producer I told the publisher to send a copy to every Supreme Court justice after I watch this Lawrence Thomas movie I'm sure they're all read it very carefully anyway so if you understand progressivism they have to reject our founding documents they have to reject because the emphasis is put on the individual and the individual's relationship with god progressivism doesn't put an emphasis on individualism it puts an emphasis on collectivism and its relationship to government they're two completely different ideology and so when they talk in Iowa about very Sanders is leading in the polls her Bernie Sanders will win and so forth and you have so called populist in our country some on television some just in Congress some who are egg heads whatever and they're out there talking about would populace and so forth were but we'll wait is there populism and and Bernie Sanders populism begin Mister but if somebody needs to read a trip right a treatise on this because I can't figure it out and either can they which is why more and more of these so called conservative populist sound more more like Bernie Sanders or a more more sympathetic to all the Democrat party trying to stop Bernie Sanders well he's not even a Democrat and what was me Bernie Sanders is a victim who gives a crap let them brutalize and let them realize each other it's bizarre it's bizarre in this appeal unfortunately is an appeal that goes beyond our borders autocracy has an appeal particularly among free people why because they never believe that it's going to devour their lifestyle and of course their lifestyle is the target think about government run healthcare for a minute let's say you can't get the drug that you want were you gonna go to get it how you go to appeal it let's say you have some horrific disease and it's very very expensive if you're not on the list at HHS or the CDC you're not on the list that is the disease you don't get we see these things happening in Britain we see these things happening in Germany and France all around the EO we see these things happening in Canada and on top of that what else do we see they smother innovation life saving drugs and as many of you know it is I witness will witnessing today people who are extremely ill extremely ill many would do anything for a life saving drug and I want to take this one step further our minds our intellect our brains are built to find solutions government is built to smother them redistribution of wealth radical egalitarianism that's not about allowing the human mind to develop knowledge to grow intellectually in any field science is what have you it's mother's it substitutes the will of the politician the will of the bureaucrats the will of the mob where the middle of the the the the will of the tyrant so it also tries to control what's between your ears what you think what you say what you can develop and create and produce it's anti human being it's

A Strange Legacy for Two Presidents

"For two presidents.

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?

He said that the great seal quote was the official symbol of the United States federal government not the office of the Presidency Eh as such some president simply used the great seal while others thought that the president should have their own distinct seal. Castilla explains at least several throw presidents in the eighteen hundreds created their own seals incorporating. Whatever flourishes appeal to them James K polk for example used his own seal on the proclamation of war against against Mexico in eighteen forty six Millard fillmore came up with his own slightly different version which he sent to Maryland Postmaster engraver Edward Stabler to make in eighteen fifty Lincoln used a personalized seal as well. A presidential seal didn't actually appear on an invitation to an event until eighteen seventy seven Kevin according to Authors Patterson and Dougal President Rutherford B Hayes who was hosting a dinner honoring Russian Grand Duke Alexis Alexandrovich made the invites look fancier zero by placing them with a seal that featured an arc of clouds raise and stars between the Eagles wingtips but the Haze Eagle was thinner in scrawny than today's robust looking eagle and its head turned toward the bundle of arrows rather than toward the olive branch in Nineteen to President Theodore Roosevelt ordered yet another other presidential seal to be installed on the floor of the White House entrance hall. He commissioned a french-american Sculptor Philip Martigny to create a new one Martigny drew on the Hayes design fine but added a few changes including engraving the phrase the seal of the President of the United States in that circular border Truman who didn't like Martin. He's work had removed emplaced elsewhere in the White House during World War Two President Franklin Roosevelt who was fascinated with insignia asked experts to redesign the presidential seal they came up with the idea of adding ring of stars to represent. All the states and having Eagle Face the olive branches rather than the Arrows to emphasize the desire for peace rather rather than war that design was the one that Truman approved in nineteen forty five and it's been used ever since in nineteen fifty nine and nineteen sixty President Dwight Eisenhower and how updated it by adding stars for Alaska and Hawaii.

Could the Great Depression Happen Again?

"Hey, brain stuff. Lauren voelpel bomb here. If you live through the great depression, that started in the late nineteen twenty s and lasted until the beginning of world or two, it's hard to imagine just how rough many ordinary Americans had it at the depressions peak in nineteen thirty three the nation's gross domestic product have been cut roughly in half and nearly one in four American workers was unemployed since they didn't have money to pay their mortgages, the foreclosure rate more than doubled, and people who lost their homes found themselves, arresting cardboard and scrap wood shacks and living in camps notice, Hoover villes on the edge of towns and cities, named after president Herbert Hoover who many blamed for the depression, in an interview published by the Federal Reserve Bank of Saint Louis in two thousand seven two men who survived, the depression, describe, how people around them often were so desperate for food that they eagerly routed through garbage bins at markets for discarded vegetables, and spoiled chicken carcasses, even after Franklin Roosevelt's new deal program eased, some of the deprivation the nation's battered, economy continue to struggle right up until the war. Brought a mass. Surge in government spending and created jobs at defense plans for those who didn't go off to fight overseas. But why did the great depression happen and could it ever happened again? The pressures causes have been a longtime subject of debate by historians and communists, though, there seems to be a consensus that the economic disaster was the result of multiple factors. Some of which led to the event, while others worsened or prolonged it, and while the nation's economy, the financial system and government regulation have changed considerably since the nineteen twenties. And thirties, experts warned that we're still not immune some of the same risks contributed to the catastrophe worse, yet some stakes of that era are now being repeated at the top of the list is income inequality. We spoke with Robert S MC, elven a history, professor at Millsaps college in Mississippi and author of the great depression, America nineteen twenty nine to nineteen forty one. He says the US shifted during the nineteen twenties. Twin economy, heavily dependent upon consumption of mass produced goods ranging from automobiles to radios while sales of those products. Drove up. Office for factory owners and retailers, most American workers wages grew much more slowly. Eventually he notes, people didn't have enough money to buy more things, and keep the economy, going businesses tried to cope by extending consumer credit and allowing people to gradually pay off their purchases. But they didn't have enough income to keep buying new stuff as well in the summer of nineteen twenty nine to avoid having inventory, pile-up factory started cutting back on production, and laying off workers those workers, then couldn't buy things which meant even more products piled up that started the economy on a downward spiral that contributed to a four day stock market crash in late October of nineteen twenty nine which raised a quarter of the value of the Dow Jones industrial average wiping out investors and severely damaging public confidence circa, nineteen twenties. Income inequality was exacerbated by a series of tax cuts pushed through congress by secretary of the treasury. Andrew w Mellon, extensively to stimulate the economy as one of the world's richest men Mellon personally benefited from the cuts more than. Practically all the tax payers in the state of Nebraska, as one political opponent of the Bill pointed out, ninety years later income, inequality is growing, and it's a threat to an economy, which depends upon personal consumption of two thirds of its economic output, and congress in two thousand seventeen past a massive tax cut package, which most Americans see themselves as not benefiting from. In addition to income inequality, there was a lot of investment speculation going on. There's a difference between investing and speculating, which invested pedia defines as putting your money into high risk investments in hopes of making a killing, but in the nineteen twenties, when everything seemed to be booming investors often were a bit too, trusting. We also spoke with Todd new p- a professor of economics and business at Cornell college in Vernon Iowa. He said, many people think of the dust bowl or the stock market crash, as the proximate cause of the great depression. But in reality, it was caused by the same factors that have caused financial crises throughout history in the US and elsewhere, debt financed speculation. In other words when people find it too easy to borrow other people's money to speculate on risky ventures. Stocks bonds, subprime housing, etc. Then people risk too much and prices boom, only to eventually bust decades later. Unfortunately, we're still vulnerable to that psychological flaw. Nuke said, markets are prone to. That this time it's different only to find out again. And again that it is usually not. In the nineteen twenties. The United States was also dealing with some bad Federal Reserve policy today were accustomed to thinking of the Federal Reserve, the nation central Bank as the guardian of the economy, that's because it's board could use monetary policy control of the supply of money and credit to stimulate the economy, when it needs a boost or to put on the brakes when inflation is starting to creep upward, but in a two thousand four lecture, former fed chairman, Ben banenky detailed his theory that ninety years ago. The fed dropped the ball with policy blunders that helped cause, prolonged the great depression, starting in nineteen twenty eight the fed hoping to put the brakes on Wall Street speculators who are investing borrowed money started raising interest rates that policy succeeded a little too, well as evidenced, by the stock market's catastrophic drop in October of nineteen twenty nine but then even after the stock market collapsed, the fed kept increasing interest rates, the reason was that the US like many other countries was on the gold standard, meaning that the dollar was redeemable in gold and pegged. To its value. When pennant investors started trading their dollars for gold, the fed moved to thwart them, Brennan key explained in his speech to stabilize the dollar the fed once, again raised interest rates sharply on the view that currency speculators would be less willing to liquidate dollar assets if they could earn a higher rate of return on them, but the high interest rates made it tough for businesses to borrow two whether the hard times, and many went bankrupt as a result at the same time according to banenky, the fed also didn't do enough to protect the nation's banks leading depositors to out their savings and hoard the cash further worsening the economic crisis. The US wasn't the only country with such problems. We also spoke with within you'll Klein and assistant professor of economics at the university of Redlands an expert on economic history. He said the gold standard helped things along by limited in the policy responsive nations around the world. Things like lower interest rates, and government deficit spending or made much more difficult. In addition, while Great Britain, provided global economic leadership before World War, One after. The war, the US, essentially, refused to lead despite being the new center of the world economy. Fortunately, this is one area where policymakers learned their lesson Klein said in the end countries dropped the gold standard and many engaged in deficit, spending, and monetary policy, and the US established its leadership under the Bretton Woods agreement about nineteen forty four packed created the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund as well as eliminating gold standard internationally. On the other hand, as a candidate Donald Trump said that bringing back the gold standard, quote would be very hard to do. But boy, would it be wonderful as president, he considered nominating to the fed board, Herman Cain, who wrote in two thousand twelve in the Wall Street Journal that the dollar should be redefined as quote, a fixed quantity of gold, though. In a recent interview Kane backed away from that position. And Stephen Moore and other past gold standard advocate told CNN that he now favored, petting the currency to a quote, whole basket of commodities both later withdrew from consideration in the face of political opposition. One of the other big factors that led to the depression was trade wars, the smoot-hawley act, which was written in early nineteen twenty nine when the economy was still going strong but became law after the Wall Street crash raised US tariffs by an average of sixteen percent. The idea was to keep other countries from hurting US manufacturers by flooding the market with lower priced products. But when those countries responded by imposing their own tariffs result was a ruinous, global decline in trade, the deepened and lengthened the great depression, that bit of history, worries many people today due to President Trump's fondness for imposing tariffs in an effort to protect us industries. So many of the factors that contributed to the great depression are still risks whether they will ever combine an economic perfect storm is a harder question to answer.

"Yesterday, congressman change the subject here? What do you think about the Democrats who are starting to call for getting rid of the electoral college and possibly expanding the supreme court when a democrat gets into the Oval Office. Well, first of all, it's virtually impossible to change the electoral college, this you'd have to get so many of the states to go along with it at Yorkshire. Yorkshire college just had to protect your small states. And they would hold the bounce out. It's not gonna happen. It's me Eddie loss to the electoral college. I they want to change it. Nobody was talking about changing Yorkshire after nineteen. The ADA or after Bill Clinton won a nineteen ninety two or ninety six. I mean you're much for colleges that is there for purpose to protect the smaller states. I I think it looks petty on their part as far as what was the other one cream court if the Democrats into the Oval Office they're talking about time. Try and he was by Franklin Roosevelt, nineteen thirty seven nine hundred thirty eight. Yep. And he went on to lose a record number of seats in the house representatives. Now, maybe that was different in America. Then, but I still think that underlying American people don't wanna change tradition for political purposes. And I think it's been well over one hundred fifty years we've had nine judges and change it now just because obviously there is. Appears to be a conservative majority is four. You would call Jeff conservatives and John Roberts is now become swing folks or deputy leans toward the right listen for years, lean towards the left.

"Johnny John Batchelor show with Andrew Roberts. The book is Churchill walking with destiny an enormous amount of material here, it goes all the way that the Cold War. Finally, resigns his second premiership in nineteen fifty five after a series of heart health events, but we're going to concentrate on the part that without without this park. There might not have been twenty-first-century as we understand it in September thirty nine is my note Francis that France is trembling, but is holding and Churchill is Lord of the admiralty is is first Lord. And he gets a he starts a correspondence with Franklin Roosevelt who thanks him for his Marlboro volumes. Why did FDR right Churchill? What was what did they have in common at that? They had the navy. Of course, he had been FDR had been assistant secretaries the navy in the first World War. They were interested in in everything naval, but really Churchill other than that they had nearly met but not quite in one thousand nine hundred eighty two and when. When Roosevelt son came to visit Churchill at his country house chartwell in Kent he'd given him these volumes that you mentioned and Roosevelt read them and enjoy them. Untold Churchill say, but really that wasn't a terribly much of a connection until this moment when. He FDR start this correspondence, which is to turn the United zero Churchill do. I yes. To say, let's start this correspondence and Churchill called himself. Cody, Cody used was former naval person, and they had this extraordinary connection which went on from this moment on until until after yells death in in April nineteen forty five over several thousand letters and this bond. Andrew allows us to understand is again based on Churchill's imagination of history because he sees his pairing with FDR as John Churchill's pairing with Eugene of Savoy, do I say that correctly do. Yes, the Oregon, but we we could immune, gene. He is a he's constantly seeing himself in historical terms Churchill, he's he had a very powerful historical imagination, very powerful historical sensibility. And so it wasn't difficult for him to acquaint himself with his own ancestor. He wanted to be John Churchill and he needed to know again. And there's nobody better really than the president of the United States. Right. Right. So this imagination Churchill's imaginations is so powerful. And he he writes, these speeches, and he gives speeches and people quote him that all during thirty nine and up to that premiership in nineteen forty who is Hitler blasting when he gives speeches not Chamberlain, not the king. He's mentioning Churchill all the time again, and again and criticizing Churchill saying churches that drunk, and of course, we haven't discussed his his use of alcohol, but we said that he took more out of alcohol alcohol taken out. Of him. But Hitler attacked him constantly and this didn't damage to actual at all with British people. Of course, he'd actually if anything strengthened him apostles of war. That's what he called Churchill and Lloyd, George. Yes. Well, one of the classic things was not Lloyd, George. He actually liked George very much, but Duff Cooper. Yeah. And he he had a sense that one of the most powerful. Criticisms of Churchill was that he was supposedly a warmonger he was actually anything. But a woman got bought if Hitler was able to to hang that around Churchill's neck. The share polling Crecy, of course of Adolf Hitler. According somebody else a warmonger is in itself. Quite comex. But nonetheless, he he did he did constantly comes with news when he would give those speeches blasting Churchill did they translate for the British cast? Yes, yes, they did. And they would listen thirty nine and forty eight premiership they put it out. A German radio translated into English. And also, of course, it was picked up in the British press will Adolf Hitler saying and the key parts of his speeches appeared in the times and other newspapers, and we left Winston Churchill with the premiership and may have nine hundred forty and Dunkirk, which is a miracle that it doesn't end the war at that moment. But we're going to go with series of maize as Churchill as Andrew tells me Churchill paid attention. When may came up a year from them. May of nineteen forty one when he having saved by himself by his rhetoric. Oratory he saves the British empire. He saves liberty in may of nineteen forty one. He's again in trouble with parliament creek falls, the Bismarck. They do they do sink, the Bismarck, but creek falls and they're blasting him as inadequate as failing again. And again, yes will the wasn't as creed. Of course. And greece. In this day and Yugoslavia as part of the same campaign, but also we weren't doing terribly well in the north African littoral either so the ones in nine hundred forty two. They were they were very go to that may have forty two. He's come back from the conference thirty or forty days with FDR, and he spoke before congress. I think he went to Canada triumph from our point of view that was that was that was the war Christmas, the Pearl Harbor Christmas and Churchill's presents was everything to the United States, but he arrives home, and they immediately plunged him into a debate of confidence again. Yes. Typical church. He had such a wonderful sense female, one of the things that has made this book writing this book say much fund is the mistakes that Churchill told and he held a marvelous one in that confidence nation in one thousand forty two when he was criticized for the defects of the eight twenty two tank, and he said when the defects and the teething troubles the eight twenty two tank became apparent tool. It was appropriately rechristened the church. Oh. And this this is very good because appropriately is the appropriate word because he knew that he had T tip and teething troubles. But by may nineteen forty two he was the only man who could as you say save liberty. Yes. We mentioned often these quotes from Churchill he had what Andrew has described correctly as a brilliant comic timing. Speeches are not just to be read. It was his gestures and his paws. Yes, and yes. And also the speed of the wet as well. The way in which he was able to put down heck close to crush other parliamentarians with with these replies. People would fill up the house of the chamber of the house of Commons just to hear him, and they had been doing that for decades and. One of the most difficult things actually is an author is to try to recapture the speed of reply and the twinkle in the eye and the various other things that Churchill used in order to get his humor across. He was often on the road as we say traveling to different parts of the conflict traveling into great danger as he had as a young, man. In fact, he was described often I think when he went into the trenches after liberally he never ducked when there was an explosion. Or when there was a bullet whizzing by he told somebody if you've winning it's too late already by you. He seems to have had a sense of either invulnerability or fate. Well, destiny, I mean, this is one of the reasons that I took that statement from him and cooled subtitled, my book will the destiny he had this extraordinarily sense of his own personal destiny. And because he had as you mentioned survive so often he actually went in the first World War went into no man's land. Nephew thirty times, they got so close to the German trenches. They could actually hear the speaking. And so this is a man who again and again had had incredibly close brushes with death. I think about forty or fifty that I mentioned in this book strokes in the heart attack, the altar tax respite exactly which in the first time you've got new menu. When was winning ten years old, and he very nearly died from that one? And so you have the sense of him. Believing that he was being saved for better things to save London to save the country and even as a sixteen year old schoolboy at Harrow. He told his best friend that he believed that he was going to save the country and save London. Nineteen forty two. We've talked about the debate in parliament and how they blasted him because the war wasn't going. Well, Randolph his son. Who is also a brave man and throws himself into great danger survives not one, but two plane crashes is that correct? Yes. And is ill often and ran off has an accident. But most importantly in may of nineteen forty two arises this idea of the second front. What was that? Well, the second front was the in a sense, it's a misnomer because we're ready by that stage. They were lots of from the second World War, but the Russians insisted again, and again that the allies should land as early as possible onto the European continent and to take strength the way. German strength away from the terrible struggles that they weren't satisfied by the bombing of Berlin, they weren't satisfied by tourists North Africa. They certainly weren't satisfied by that all the victory at all the war at sea where we were battle of the Atlantic and say, the huge numbers of convoys that we were sending to Murmansk, and that's great risk great loss huge peril, and they weren't satisfied very anything really until the major landings in north west Europe. And actually at the time they won't even be satisfied by them. S because of Stalin mentioned a moment come back because Churchill had a relationship with Stalin is quite different than how the Americans have seen him and how we have dealt with him until his death in fifty three..

"This was from Franklin Roosevelt. This came through proclamation number twenty five thirty seven and it's sort of misunderstood. The way the Japanese internment I worked is that all foreign aliens illegal aliens, or or resident aliens from the axis nations, Germany, Italy and Japan had to register with the US department of Justice following this. There was the alien registration act of nineteen forty then finally in forty two there was the executive order ninety sixty six which authorized the physical removal of all Japanese-Americans, even if you had as little as one sixteenth Japanese ancestry. You could be physically forcibly moved into an internment camp. The reason I bring this up is because it's not brought up very much in American politics. And the reason it's not brought up very much is it doesn't look very good for progressives in Democrats, so every crime committed by anyone who could vaguely be called conservative is constantly rehashed dating all the way back to the crusades. We constantly hear about that. You don't hear terribly much about Japanese internment? And the reason is this when conservatives and. Republicans point out the Democrats have an awful history of a party history of misery from slavery to Jim crow to disfranchised people to lynchings on and on and on they say, well that was before the party's switched those guys were they were conservative Democrats. They weren't progressive Democrats, and it's blah, blah, and they sort of get away with this silly argument. You can't get away with that with Franklin Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, invented or welfare state. Frank Franklin Roosevelt wasn't a progressive. Who was a progressive? Franklin Roosevelt is one of the president's the Democrats and progressives hold up as one of the greats in history him and Woodrow Wilson and Lyndon Johnson. Those are the three big ones for progressives. But Franklin Roosevelt is the one who issued Japanese internment. This is historically a big problem for Democrats. They can't get around. We should pointed out because the law. Logical conclusion of leftist big government, socialist governments taking over the industry's the logical conclusion of that is that they can control you. They can move you. They can take your property. They can take your livelihood. They can take where you live and move it to someplace else. I I've been writing a lot about Alexandria, Casio Cortez and the dangers posed by socialism, and you always hear oh, well, socialism, it's fine stopped demagoguing. So what's the big deal? You get free healthcare as Ronald Reagan pointed out, the government big enough to give you everything that you have is everything that you want rather is big enough to take away everything that you have and nowhere. Do you see that more clearly than in the leftist progressive legacy of Franklin Roosevelt? We also have to talk about speaking political philosophy on this day in history in sixteen thirty nine the first constitution in any American colony came to be the fundamental orders. In Hartford, Connecticut. And this was a binding compact. It was a frame of government. The reason that I bring up this obscure. Colony constitution is because it really shows us an important aspect of what we conservatives should think about when we frame our political philosophy with regard to modern politics. I think conservatives talk too much about the constitution. I do I know that will sound controversial. I love the constitution. I think it's one of the greatest documents ever written. I can't love it enough. However, I think we fall into this trap is conservatives of only focusing on this one document on the constitution. We say it's written in the constitution. Therefore, that's that's the be all and end. All that's the beginning of the end of the country, and we have to follow it. And if we don't follow it, we've gone terribly wrong, and why aren't people following it? And come on guys. It's don't you remain. It's right there written on the white. You're doing it. And we get very frustrated by this because at least half of our country broadly, just regards the constitution regularly. The constitution is not the beginning of our country. It's not even the first. Institution in the history of our country. That's the beautiful thing about our country. And that view is the essence of conservative thought or country didn't spring into being magically in seventeen seventy six or seventeen eighty nine or seventeen eighty seven or seventeen ninety one doesn't or the eighteen hundred it doesn't it happens organically, it happened through evolution not just revolution..

"I look at the situation today on immigration bear with me. And try to stick with me on this. There has been a crisis created on the border. Because of the left. It's not something we as Americans are able to deal with. It's something that we are prevented dealing with. We have within our own borders. Mayors and city councils and governors and state assemblies. Better defying federal law. Defying federal law every bit as much as the confederacy nullified federal law. We have federal judges who protect them. When the Trump Justice department under Jeff Sessions tried to cut funds hearth from some of these areas. The Justice department was blocked which astounding since the federal government uses that tactic all the time when it comes to demanding. All kinds of social engineering. Now what this means, ladies and gentlemen, is the court the administrative state. Many of these cities and states. Are dragging this nation. Into a post constitutional. Governance. It's very very serious. I look at Donald Trump, put aside the media, put aside the propaganda, put aside, the never Trumpers, the former never Trumpers, and I think the myself what exactly has this man done. That violates the constitution. What exactly has this man done that violates any statute in this country? Nothing. I look at history. I look at history. Look at a president of Franklin Roosevelt. Who by a military order nine zero six six nine of the executive order issued a military order. And rounded up one hundred twenty thousand Japanese Americans of Japanese descent. Forcibly removed them from their homes took their property. And sent them to military interment camps. Oh, that's bad. Mark. That's bad. It's bad. The supreme court of the United States upheld that decision by the president of the United States. Franklin roosevelt. And the car Matsu decision. Franklin roosevelt. Is considered one of the great democrat presidents of all time and with many of the tenured professors in our colleges and universities in the top three of all time. Why because Franklin Roosevelt all but destroyed our constitutional and economic order. He's a great progressive. Every progressive president since then is standing on his shoulders. Lyndon johnson. Barack Obama among others. Among others. Donald Trump has never done anything like that. And yet he was accused by the party of Franklin Roosevelt, a few months ago of setting up interment camps. When children were separated from adults because the country's being flooded. And we didn't know if they were actually their parents, or whether they were abusing the kids or whatever was going on they needed to be vetted. We've had presidents. As I have discussed many times now, so you'll hear the echo chamber in radio. That's the way it is many presidents. Who shut down newspapers? Who threaten radio stations and TV stations? Who through journalists in prison? Our president doesn't do anything like that. He doesn't even threaten to do anything like that. And yet it's said that he is the greatest threat to freedom of the press ever. No, he's not. And he never has been. And of course, as you non we've discussed at great length. Abraham LINCOLN suspended habeas corpus now. As we've also talked about the civil war was the civil war. But what I'm trying to explain here is Donald Trump is trashed. By some uninformed conservatives in the always uninformed left all the time. About how he is destructive of our constitutional order how he is violating statutes Heli obstruct Justice. How he's lawless how he's a liar. And he's none of these things. He's none of these things. Now, why am I bringing all this up? We have utter lawlessness on the left and the democrat party, which is celebrated by the media. Sanctuary cities. Nullification of federal law. The democrat party is the party of the illegal alien, not the American citizen. They confer rights throughout the states and cities on a legal aliens, they undermine federal law federal enforcement federal deportation orders. We've absolute anarchy. Because that is what the democrat party has created the hard left. The progressives their status. President of the United States. Is trying to use his legitimate constitutional authority. To undo this. To secure the border. And other the constitution. Here's the right to do. So even more so. There's a federal statute that was passed in nineteen seventy six long before he even flirted politics. This statue was passed by an overwhelmingly democrat, congress still had the Watergate babies in that congress. And the statue was passed to put some limits on presidential power. Because prior presidents, particularly Roosevelt. Abused the power of issuing emergency acts. They had no time limits and no boundaries. That is why and the case of Harry Truman with the steel mills. The supreme court finally had the guts to tell him now. But we didn't have the national emergencies act back then. And there's a provision in that act have now discussed for the last three days that enables congress to put a check on a president joint resolution passed by majority. Congress does exactly that the court should have no role. These are political decisions. But the president is violating the constitution. He's not even violating the statute. He's looking at the statute he's looking at the immigration laws. There's an emergency provisions in the immigration law, the immigration and naturalization act, and he's marrying the two up which is what he's supposed to do. Because he's getting advice from really smart lawyers in the White House counsel's office at the Justice department smarter than the lawyers who are online popping off smarter than the phony lawyers who are on cable TV. Real serious constitutional lawyers. Not former this and former that. President is not making up this stuff. He's not flying by the seat of his pants. These are big time litigators. These are areas. I happen to be fairly expert in myself because this is how I lived for thirty years. On subjects like this. Most of the people commenting on the national emergencies act have never commented on it before they never heard of before. And what it was invoked repeatedly by Barack Obama and invoked by other presidents who preceded this president. They never said squat. They never wrote about it. They never complain about it. They never said it was unconstitutional. They never said we don't govern this way. We're not talking about this president issuing an executive order that out of thin air creates DACA. That's not what this president's doing. There was no statutory basis for Dhaka and Obama admitted he wrote legislation out of thin air violated separation of powers. That's not what Trump plans to do. The reason I believe he needs to do. This is there's no other way. And I looked at the editor of the national review. Which is really a pathetic editorial. I must say it's actually one of the weakest they don't have a solution. Either. But they tell the president don't do it. It's a terrible idea. Even if it's legal I'm quoting which is unclear at best its not unclear at best that doesn't mean some activists court won't reverse in because we've seen plenty of that. It's quite clear as a matter of fact, and so is the precedent hasn't been applied to the border. But that's the point president saying this is really unique situation. We've an emergency. And it's so important to this president, and he feels that way so strongly. That's why. That's why he's taken his position in his firm in it. On the one hand, we're told the sky's falling the government's collapsing. Every American is feeling the consequences. Even though the vast majority are filling nothing. The Democrats ten years ago fifteen years ago twenty years ago, we're banging pots and pans of the necessity to secure the border. And it's only got ten times worse since. The economic impact on communities on that border has been horrendous. And now, it's spreading throughout the country. And when you have a political party that represents a legal aliens are not American citizens because it's in their best interest. The change the nature of the citizenry. To change the demographics. That's what happened. That's why they flip. That's why big labor flip. It's not in the interest of the United States. And the fact that some in the conservative movement have gotten used to these numbers have gotten used to this is their problem. We.

Real serious constitutional lawyers. Not former this and former that. President. It's not making up this stuff. He's not flying by the seat of his pants. These are big time litigators. These are areas. I happen to be fairly expert in myself because this is how I lived for thirty years. On subjects like this. Most of the people commenting on the national emergencies act have never commented on it before they never heard of it before. And what it was invoked repeatedly by Barack Obama and invoked by other presidents who preceded this president. They never said squat. They never wrote about it. They never complain about it. They never said it was unconstitutional. They never said we don't govern this way. We're not talking about this president issuing an executive order that out of thin air creates DACA. That's not what this president's doing. There was no statutory basis for Dhaka and Obama admitted it he wrote legislation out of thin air violated separation of powers. That's not what Trump plans to do. The reason I believe he needs to do. This is there's no other way. And I looked at the editor of the national review. Which is really a pathetic editorial. I must say it's actually one of the weakest. They don't have a solution. Either. But they tell the president don't do it. It's a terrible idea. Even if it's legal I'm quoting which is unclear at best its not unclear at best that doesn't mean some activists court won't we verse in because we've seen plenty of that. It's quite clear as a matter of fact, and so is the precedent hasn't been applied to the border. But that's the point president saying this is really unique situation. We've an emergency. And it's so important to this president, and he feels that way so strongly. That's why. That's why he's taking his position and his firm in it. On the one hand, we're told the sky's falling the government's collapsing. Every American is feeling the consequences. Even though the vast majority of filling nothing. The democrat ten years ago fifteen years ago twenty years ago, where banging pots and pans of the necessity to secure the border. And it's only got ten times worse since. The economic impact on communities on that border has been horrendous. And now, it's spreading throughout the country. And when you have political party that represents a legal aliens are not American citizens because in their best interest changed the nature of the citizenry. To change the demographics. That's what happened. That's why they flip. That's why big labor flipped. It's not in the interest of the United States. And the fact that some in the conservative movement have gotten used to these numbers had gotten used to this is their problem. We.

"You break up with your boyfriend girlfriend, some biographer like me one hundred years from now is gonna wanna know about these relationships. It's relationships that matter, and I think that's what people wanna read about. They want understand the person just as they would understand, a grandparent or great grandparent. They're not remote figures anymore. They're actual people. And that's what I try to make them come alive. Let's voice of doors curtains good when I major Garrett this, the takeout. We are at the Willard hotel cafe Duparc back for segment fourth in a second. You're listening to the takeout. Welcome back. What great meal what a great conversation doors Kerns Goodwin. Always going to be true when you have a meal endorse currents Goodwood us in across the table from you. She has a new book out leadership and turbulent times. We've talked about three of the characters that are in that book. We haven't talked about teddy Roosevelt as much those of the four Lyndon Johnson. Teddy Roosevelt Franklin Roosevelt and ABRAHAM LINCOLN a little bit about teddy Roosevelt and the book itself. I wanted to write about the people I knew the best and I wanted to talk about their leadership qualities and teddy Roosevelt came into power in a time very much like ours. The industrial revolution had shaken up the economy much as the global possession and tech revolution. Have there was a gap between the rich and the poor. They were immigrants coming in. Who were then blamed for the problems that the working class people had there was ferment people in the rural areas felt like those cities were sinful places. And there was a sense really of a worker revolution possibly. There are a lot of nationwide strikes. And bombings and a populous movement had developed as a result. And he was able with his colorful nature mean he could be today. He's the one who could probably challenge Trump better than anyone all those small sayings that he had speak softly and carry a big stick don't hit until you have to and then hit harder, but more than that he took on himself, the understanding that he was the steward as the governor governor of the people of the people and that they needed regulation and the big companies had to be split up. And so he was able to take that real popular sentiment and put it in a progressive direction that was moderate. I mean, he said a square deal is for the rich and the poor the capitalist end the wage worker, and it was just a great colorful character. Again. I choose these people because I wanna live with them because it's going to take me so long and the great thing about writing the leadership of was I could bring four of them back. I didn't have to move used to have to move the books from the study as I moved from one person to another and I felt guilty. Like, I was leaving boyfriend behind are their leadership. Flippable to people who are not president of the United States. Absolutely. I think so I mean, I think leadership is our human qualities, you know, emotional intelligence, human, quality, empathy for other people humility being able to acknowledge Ariza and learn from your mistakes being able to talk to the people you're working with about. What's wrong having self reflection and being able to relax replenish, her energies, all of those things, especially the last one for us today when we have so little time, we think to do things when I think about Lincoln said go into theater one hundred times during the civil war FDR had a cocktail party every not every night during World War Two and the rule was you couldn't talk about the war if they they're pretty busy. If can find time to do this weekend to somehow how about these two aspects of these four leaders lives doubts and defeats in all four cases, defeats significant ones at setbacks. They had to reconcile them to reconcile themselves to and bounce back from. I know that sounds like a cliche. It's literally true. Now, it sometimes cliches are true. I mean, they went there. That's right. So they went through adversity, and they came out stronger at the other end Lincoln was in the depression, so deep when he was in his thirties that they took all knives and razors and scissors from his room, and he came through that..

"For your guest. I've been reading the financial times for many years. And every what you're saying is there's a column every week scaring the heck out of all of us with what you're saying. We'll be closer to home. I'm about four years from retirement like thirty five years almost forty years are entities, which is nationwide is censored in New York. Our pension was over-funded in the late nineties. It took a horrendous hit with the tech stocks. And then in two thousand eight almost got obliterated has gone white down. We have a meeting. Now, there's thousands of us about to retire. Right. All high tech guys and gals. The whole thing we have a meeting in about three weeks at our entity. And I don't trust any. But in Wall Street, I think there should be a guillotine set up there if you will again and Franklin Roosevelt shoes should come down from heaven and come back. But the thing is what do we ask our financial people who are running our pension fund with their fancy suits. What are they doing to into this problem, and I'll take your answer off the air? Yeah. You know, real quick to pop not only the stock market starts collapsing. So everybody's been driven into the stock market because quantitative easing in monetary policies. Pushed down long-term rates that you can get on safer investments like treasury bonds and corporate bonds and things like that. Which pension plan should be more in. But but you can't get your seventy eight percent returns. They used to get with a conservative combination of stocks and bonds, so everybody's gone more stocks and then stocks start collapsing. Then they're in trouble. The truth is much as it's counterintuitive a pension plan today. The best thing you can do. Well, we're telling people right now, this this break up and yield is gonna make bonds corporate bonds and treasury bonds long-term more attractive if that thirty year treasury bond goes up to four point three percent. We're telling our subscribers this is likely to happen in the next several months in the next year at the most you're gonna wanna lock those in not only to get a four point three percent return is way better than almost any stock dividend. But those bonds will appreciate when stocks collapsed in the economy slows down and interest rates. Go down bonds like falling interest rates. So right now is not the time to buy these bonds. But there's going to be a huge opportunity for investors and pension funds to lock in quality bonds. It's only. The quality bonds that did well in the great depression AAA corporate ten and thirty year treasury bond lock in those things for appreciation and for higher yields and don't be in stock. The worst place to be for pension plan is to do it. Everybody's run into stocks and claps and you're also right about blue states, subsidizing read. That's why I think this time around it's going to be the blue states that succeed against red policies that they don't agree with. But most of all they're like, okay. See what happens to your Radic Konami when New York and California when the northeast and the west coast succeed from the union, it'd be would it would be a problem. Let's go to Thomas in the Hoya, California. Hey, Tom, go ahead. Hey, George, thank you for taking my call, sir. Harry, your research is really appreciated. I need you know, you brought up earlier that a corollary to depressions and major recessions. Is war? And you could argue that the world today is in a third World War. That's a proxy war. You know in places like Syria Yemen, the South China Sea, et cetera and global corporations cannot compromise their differences in the global boardrooms. There's a shooting war just like World War One World War, Two Korea, Vietnam and on and on. So don't you think I mean, a limited nuclear exchange could turn the United States into a third world country and a day or two, you know, with electromagnetic pulse yet cetera. What is the probability of a shooting war? You know, I think that's much more likely between emerging countries like India and Pakistan, but what we've seen in zero hour, we trace global trade back to the eighteen hundreds. And there was a big surge in the world. We're one people don't realise globalization global trade collapsed sixty percent between World War One and World War. Tune with the great depression in the middle with a big trade war with rising tariffs. Just like we're seeing now everything's happening like happened in this works. I it's it's everybody does the selfish thing as a country, but it works against the whole everybody loses or at least most countries lose. And that's what's happening. Now, this trade war with China. Whether it ends up shooting war or limited like, you say in the South China Sea that could definitely be stopped there. There's no question. There's problems there Middle East. I don't see a major war between like say, the United States or Europe and Russia, there could be limited because. Nobody's big enough to challenge. Just the one advantage. We have is there's there is no counter veiling power that could really take us on one on one. Somebody hit us day would be dead long before we would. So I think that's kind of a good thing. We're in the early nineteen hundreds nineteen hundreds. No, there were major countervailing powers. That's how you can have World War Two. But we are going to definitely have political huge political. Steve's this trade war. We said in zero hour before this came. This is gonna last two to three decades.
