Dinesh Has Some Praise(?!) for Adam Kinzinger

"May seem like a bit of a surprise, but I'm going to say a few words and praise of Adam kinzinger. What Adam kinzinger, the guy who the guy who decided to vote well, he voted for Trump's impeachment. He's been on the January 6th committee with Liz Cheney. But here's a key difference. Adam kinzinger has a little bit of self recognition. Liz Cheney does not have any. I mean, let's start with Liz Cheney. I mean, the idea of getting absolutely routed in your primary. And think of it. You got the Cheney dynasty. You've got all the money you have outspend Harry and hagerman. Harriet hagerman is a kind of a nobody. She comes out of nowhere and no political experience. She's running against you. And you lose by like, what, 35 points, 40 points, according to Trump. I mean, this is humiliating. A normal person would be like, oh my gosh, I don't know if I can show my face in public at the very least, I've got to recognize I did something to offend my own base. I insulted my own voters. I gave them the middle finger. Now they're giving me the middle finger. This is not good. But it would lose Jaime. None of that. You basically, I'm like Abraham Lincoln. I'm like general grant. My loss is really a victory onto the bigger ones now. This is like this shows a level of psychotic delusion that it's hard to even know. I mean, this is somebody with a ridiculous, absurd ego. And I mean, politicians have big egos, but this is the limit. Now, now contrast this with kinzinger, who I think at least recognizes that he got clobbered by Trump. In fact, he was asked, did he does he believe that he quote won in the feud with Trump? And he goes, no, he goes, he goes, Trump won. He was evidently interviewed by WGN, and here are skins that are quote. Yeah, he won in the short term at least. So, you know, he kinzing is trying to minimize it, but nevertheless he admits,

For general grant to engage them in that area he ended up going around them And up the tennessee river and set up what was later called the battle of shiloh Or pittsburg landing as you might wanna call it it. It was one of the early battles in the civil war. I think either eighteen sixty one or sixty two and It was a horribly bloody battle but the battle was gonna be. The battle of columbus ended up being shiloh but they were prepared the He gets my granddad. Grew up there right. On the mississippi river they found many balls in the trenches of us born in eighteen ninety nine so that was only five years after the civil war but it became apparent that if he was going to be educated he couldn't stay in that county because they had no high school so he had an uncle named fred cow. Who is a famous musician in louisville He founded the louisville conservatory of music. Which later became the university of louisville music. School and granddaddy came to louisville to live with uncle fred and he went to male high-school which at the time was in education in and of itself it. You didn't really have to go to college after that. 'cause you studied greek latin and the you studied the classical type of education. That's what granddaddy got he. later went to world war one For a very brief time for. I think he was probably seventeen eighteen years old so he went to europe. He got a little bit of gas. Not much but i think it did weaken him In his later life he didn't get any where near the gas. That that that some people got A back in that horrible horrible form of warfare that they engaged in world war one And that's why they had the where the face masks He got back to louisville and one of his first jobs.

That's what he was and he would. talk to him about Company louisville gas and electric company and a lot of times. There be a a light bulb hanging down from the ceiling over the kitchen table and he would say. The dividend on this preferred stock will be paid. Just like that like comes on you know and as if to illustrate the dependability of whatever anything to make a sale so fifty bucks you know they would go to the cookie jar.

"I mean, they're senators are negotiating multi trillion dollar infrastructure packages behind their back. Their governor is gone totally covid crazy and they're wanting someone to actually fight for them. And that's why I called Donald Trump, the bodyguard of Western civilization. He was the only one that was willing to actually defend our civilization against threats and you don't hire a bodyguard. For cocktail party conversation, right? You don't hire a bodyguard to go sit at the state dinner. You hire a bodyguard to protect you against the thugs that are going to try to burn down your family in your neighborhood, your home or your business. And Donald Trump was good at that, and he brought the fight straight into the streets. And too many Republicans missed that. Because again, Tom There's this idea that Republicans always resort to. Well, We must be decent. We must try to build bridges with the other side. The other side doesn't want to build bridges with us. They want to defeat us. They want to run us over. They want to eliminate us. As I mentioned. I sat down with this group of conservatives, they said it's a mistake to try to personalize things. We always take the high road. What do you have to say, though? To some conservatives that say, that's not who we are. We're not going to go down to the levels of the left. We're always going to just Kind of just do the right thing. And if we lose, so be it. Do the people that we point to in history as heroes were? Is that what they did? I mean, one. First of all, I agree with all that, Um, you know, one easy analogy is is General Grant right? He was a drunkard and efficient any many number of ways, but He understood. We had to fight and he fucked right and see your this conservative group you're talking about. I would tell them just what you're saying. It's all very nice in a world where we kind of all agree On what justice is, but if we don't agree Then we have to employ very much different rhetoric and strategy is just like again. I come back to the civil war. Um, between the North and the South. There were only two options We fought or we parted. Right? And I think you know here partying we're beginning to do. Obviously people are talking about it. Obviously, it's a lot more difficult. And I don't I don't expect the hot war who knows, I mean the riots were hot war and they were promoted by the Democrats, as well as promoted by The cultural business complex. So I don't know exactly how you convince a group like that. I think what you again comes back to leadership. Somebody's got to explain that this really is a war. And in a war we we abide by different rules. You know, I frequently say America is not racist period now do I think there's some racism in America, of course, are the racist. But I don't want to concede that. Right now. Is it time to assert in the same way they assert that America is systemically racist. They have no evidence for that. We need to assert the opposite. So I agree completely with you. As we said earlier live and let live will lose to do it our way or else every time Well, and this is what people don't understand. Is that the live and let live attitude. It's fine. If you're in the hills of Vermont with 50 people and you have a commune. Until all of a sudden, someone says, you don't know I actually want to call the shots, and that's what's happened here is that just here's another way to look at it. Maybe You can do this live and let live stuff. If all the population generally agrees on an understanding of justice, Yes. And what did you just society looks like? But if all of a sudden this happened now Different understandings of justice, different understanding of the just society. Then you gotta fight. And in fighting. You don't necessarily compromise because if you compromise, you're likely to end up on the enemy's turf. And the Republicans seem to do that all this time. The voice of generations is.

"Way are back. Mike Rosen is in. We're talking movies. We talked to a priest while they talked previously about make Which, by the way, just got a crap ton of Golden Globe nominations. So there's Hollywood loves movies about itself. Yes, it does Have that feel to it, doesn't it? It's the only reason I love talk radio movies because most of them are not that good anyway. Now we're talking about Denzel Washington's new film. It's called the Little Thief. Wait, Little things, Little things. See, I did it again. Um, on Dave was kind of reviewing what you liked what you didn't like about this movie. Yeah, I always liked them Zone Washington as I said, and I like him in this and I like the relationship between he and his fellow detective, but that's about all I liked about it. It's funny that Mike is saying one of the big mysteries is what what's in the past of the Denzel Washington character, and you know you, you don't find out till the end. Instead of who is the serial killer of their After pretty much you're told that in the beginning, and that's the end of that mystery. And that was that was murder Mystery without a murder mystery. Yeah, There's no mystery about the murderer. I mean, he played the role of his serial killer, You know, in your face cops, I'm gonna tease you all the time when you like toe, you know, kick my teeth in, but you can't do it. Ha ha ha! That got old after a while, and the very end of the movie doesn't make sense at all. And I'm not giving anything away when I tell you that they're trying to dig up a body. And one of the detective is doing the digging. And as he's doing it, the serial killer takes him out to this place. And the cop is wearing a gun on his hip and the serial killers walking within. You know, 1 ft of him and could have pulled the gun and blown his head off any time he wanted to, and I'm supposed to believe this movie. It was It made no sense. Uh, It's a slow moving film. I wouldn't recommend it except for the one aspect the relationship between the two cops, but big disappointment for me. All right. What is the way? Go ahead, Mike. The reason the reason that the detective was digging the holes, which did seem to be strange was because he's an actor, and that was in the script. He had to dig the holes. He can't make up the movie as he goes along. Can we blame the screenwriter then? I suppose we could. Yeah, he's responsible for that. The McGuffin is this Brett and it's in the last three minutes of the movie. It answers a whole bunch of questions that you would work two hours to try to figure out for yourself and one of which was this Bere etch. On. I won't say any more about it. Because I don't want to ruin the movie for people who are going to see it s Oh, uh, I'm gonna give it I'll let you use the MacGuffin unit of measure. I'm going to give it Three dumb holes out of five. Yeah, I was going to use red Bretz. But I want all youse two out of five shovels and I'm being generous. Grant. I'll give it 2.5 fired bullet key chains. Is that a fired bullet key chain It tells quite the story. Well, okay. Kind of gives you a little insight into why Denzel is the way he think of the film in General Grant. It was okay to call you General Grant. It was okay. It wasn't great. I thought Denzel and Remy Malik were the only two shining parts like you said. They've I thought Jared Leto's character was Not very inspired for a serial killer. But I don't know. It was just kind of slow, Don't you think we've been spoiled by some of the somatic serial serial killers that we've gotten used to you and and the fact that you knew he was the killer right off the bat? It kind of turned me off. I'm never sure why that choices made unless there's some joy enormous twist right at the end. You know it is. It is anticlimactic, pre climactic. Premature. Climactic. It's you know it was that all right. So what are we gonna in theory? What am I gonna watch this week? I have a question for Grant. Oh, go ahead. Okay? What? What did you think you have the president Grant. Ginny. General Grant anything you want to be President, United States. Hey, Have you read that Greek classic Ulysses Grant. I'm sorry. Going very nice way.

"Michael before you continue with your lesson. I just want to hit this because we're in Ohio. This is, by the way, if you just turn your radio on pop grand sitting in for Dennis Prager here in Cleveland in 1992, the 5/100 anniversary of Columbus Arriving in the West Indies, the city of Columbus, Ohio, hosted a parade. Down High Street that began at 7:30 P.m. on a Saturday fireworks at 10 P.m. that night, a Columbus Marathon the next day Ah, Childrens run a chili cook off. It was a full weekend off events. Seven years later by 1999. The parade was gone. Columbus Day remains a federal holiday, but the city of Columbus does not observe it. They stopped in 2018. In July of this year. Franklin County commissioners eliminated Columbus Day is a paid holiday for its agencies, replacing it with Juneteenth and also after July 1st after the protest following the death of George Floyd. In Minneapolis, the city removed the Christopher Columbus statue outside of City Hall in a city named for him. This is the insanity, Michael that we're talking about here and please continue with your With your lesson. I am not hearing Michael Knowles. I don't know if we have got a glitch here. Can we put Michael harping near me now? I got you, Michael. Sorry. Couldn't hear you. But I think you make a great point, as prolific. Probably didn't do anything in 2018. So I I don't think that everything changed and then we're changed is on our and what changed his historical ignorance. There's a kind of irony to all of this because they say that Columbus is a simple of white supremacy and racial bigotry, and that's why we've got to get rid of them. But actually, the reason Columbus Day was implemented in 18 92 on the 4/100 anniversary of his voyage is because, a year earlier we saw the largest math lynching in American history, which was actually perpetrated against Italian Americans you would imagine because of the racial history would be not not Italian Americans. But it Wass and so as a result of that Columbus Day was brought to the fore as a recognition of the man who discovered the new world and a sort of welcome. The end of Italians to America is a great irony, even in the name of racial solidarity and social justice. They're getting rid of this day, but it's because they don't know anything about A man and they used some of things that he didn't do. And more precisely, they hate this civilization so they'll attack, for instance. Not just generally, they'll attack us. Grant General Grant was the guy who defeated the Confederacy. DEL Attack. Lincoln Jefferson Washington. Any simple of our country and of our civilization and the beginning symbol. I think in this new world would be Christopher Columbus. So regardless of the historical record, they want to attack him because they hate our civilization. How dangerous is it that we erase this part of our history? I mean the exploration because people talk about while he didn't actually discover America, he discovered the West Indies, which you know the Bahamas and you, you point out, you know San Salvador's what he called it at the time, etcetera, etcetera. How important is it to future generations to know the origin and to know the original exploration of Columbus and what it led to The nature of whores, a vacuum, so they're either going to know the history. They're going to know what happened or they're going to know the ideological fiction that is being said to them by people who want to tear down the civilization. I'm reminded of a specific line. From Karl Marx, who's acolytes in the cultural sphere, in particular in the academy have repeated and exercised for the past 100 years, at least, which is that mark sought undertake the ruthless criticism of all that exists. The process that was going to be undertaken in the culture was a purely negative one. You see this, particularly in critical theory, which has come to the forest President Trump has opposed it from the White House. What is the theory theory is to criticize you or anything. And instead, you could just say, well, Columbus. Poor decisions as governor of the Indians. Well, Columbus didn't make it to the land. He intended to go to the only discovered. I don't know part of the Bahamas or something like that. Which, of course, put put the new world on the map and gave us our civilization. You could just attack attack attack, And in any case, you could say, Well, what would you have done? Columbus himself said that he wrote in his diary to oppose the calumny that was foisted on him. People who lied about his record then as they do today, and he said, I wish that the people who criticize me now would have been there on those voyages. I wish that they could have been put an armchair critics. But what we have today is a whole generation of arms critics who don't really care that even the truth value of what they're saying about Columbus. They simply want to criticize the civilization, and unfortunately, as the true history is covered up, it becomes easier to convince people to hate their own culture. We're talking with Michael Knowles, historian, a writer columnist and a podcast host is well. Michael in your Prager, you video You talk about the 10 Long weeks at sea. I think we can all relate to being in the back of the car when Mom and dad were driving us. Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? We had a destination and we were still board and it still took a long time when you're being driven across country or from one state to visit relatives or whatever the case might be, and we knew we had a place to be. And yet we were still annoyed. Can you talk Maura about how he managed to keep his crew and the crews of the three ships focused and willing to go. You talk about how they were ready to turn on him after a week. 10 weeks and see they didn't have a destination. They had a theory that a hope they had. This guy thinks there might be land over here, and there's a way for us to navigate this headed westward to discover the new world. But they didn't even know because it had never been done before. Hime. I cannot over estar over state, I should say. The difficulty that that must have you know that that that there must have been in accomplishing this in convincing his crew not to, you know to to stage a mutiny and turn the ship around. The crew might not have known where they were going. But Columbus did. And I mean this in more senses than one Columbus had a deep and abiding religious faith. He took the Eucharist on the morning that he said sale. He read the hours and the prayers constantly on the ship. He would have been considered a religious extremist, perhaps, and he killed Delaney. Ah, going It's a wonderful book that describes his religious motivation. He wanted to fund a new crusade. He wanted to bring bring glory to God into the church, and that that part is often written out of his history. But he had a deep and abiding faith. And I think that strengthened him that that discipline I think was able to bring his crew into line and of course they did. They did finally site landed. He called San Salvador. Holy Right, save Michael, Let me interrupt you there because I've got to get our last heartbreak here. I want to come back and ask you one final question, And this is how we deal with those who tell us Columbus should not be honored. People are tearing down the things we hold, dear, like our history and our.

"Its section rates quote the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race color or previous condition of servitude. Close quote. Not to overstate ulysses role in the amendment, but the presidential election of eighteen sixty eight was largely a referendum on reconstruction. The motto of Ulysses Democratic Opponent, Horatio Seymour was. And I quote this is a white man's country let white men rule. Close quote. Yeah. No beating around the Bush there. And while you list won the election by Commanding Electoral College, Victory of two hundred, fourteen to eighty. He only won the popular vote three million to two point seven. He still would have won the electoral college without black ballots but not the popular vote. That means reconstruction still on a knife's edge. If it's last it will need voting black citizens. I can't stress that last point. Enough. I. Let's not forget that many northern states still deny black Americans enfranchisement. By the eighteen sixty election, only eight northern states had given black men the vote. In other words this amendment is a game changer, not just in the south at across the nation. Second, euless hopes the Fifteenth Amendment will enable black. Americans to protect themselves. Literally, a number of ex confederates have taken to vigilantism or terrorism rather to fight the extension of civil rights to black Americans. We got an example of that in the open to the last episode with the eighteen, sixty six New Orleans massacre. And that was just one instance of many. Some bent on this hate based violence or even organizing. One such group is called the Ku Klux. Klan and yes I'll definitely go into more detail on it in a later episode promise. This organization has worried you list for years he still pissed that his. President. Andrew, Johnson refused to take action against them. Yet for all the good the fifteenth amendment does for Black Men. It fails women. As with the mail based allocation of Electoral College votes in the fourteen th minute women's suffrage is feel the sting of being passed up. Again Susan. B.. Anthony flat out opposes the fifteenth because of this exclusion. Elizabeth, Katie, Stanton, and others immediately start lobbying Congress for women suffrage granting sixteenth amendment. A have to imagine first lady Julia Grant isn't happy either given how vocal she gets about her support of women's suffrage at her White House socials. But Alas. You're still decades away from such an amendment. One last thing the fifteenth, amendment does though. It alters the relationship between the states and federal government. It does. So with it's one sentence long section to. Quote, the Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation. Close quote. See The fourteenth amendment might penalize states for excluding any male citizens from voting but fifteenth straight up takes the question of civil rights out of the hands of estates in gives it to the feds. This trend will continue. Historian James McPherson points this out so well that like biographer Rauscher now I'm going to borrow his analysis as well. Eleven of the first twelve amendments constrain federal power while six of the next seven that is thirteen through nineteen enlargement. Yeah. Let that sink in. We are witnessing a real shift in American. Political. Thought and balance of power. So, at least for now, it looks like reconstruction is working and ulysses is no small part of that. He welcomes black officials like Louisiana. Lieutenant Governor Oscar J done to the. White. House. He means black men as ambassadors, I sending Ebeneezer de Bassett to Haiti and James Milton Turner to Beria. Meanwhile. Hundreds of black men are appointed to various positions in the federal government from customs, collections to clerks and more. Forgive quick interjection. I can't help but think how much Edwin Stanton would have loved to have seen these changes. Sadly, congestive heart failure claimed the life of Lincoln's cantankerous war secretary last year on Christmas Eve eighteen sixty nine just days after the Senate confirmed him to his dream job of supreme. Court. Justice. Rest in Peace Mars You listen also set something of a record as he brings. Jews into the administration. And there's a crucial backstory here. During the Civil Wars Vicksburg campaign, then general grant was frustrated with wartime profiteers buying cotton, thereby indirectly funding the very army shooting at his men. Okay that makes sense. Unfortunately. He bought into the Anti Semitism of the day and blamed Jews for the illegal trade. On December seventeenth eighteenth sixty two he issued general order number eleven which states that quote the Jews as a class violating every regulation of trade established by the Treasury Department and also department orders. Are Hereby expelled from the Department within twenty four hours from the receipt of this order. Close quote. Brought his attention, a surprised and disappointed president. Lincoln sent orders Teela's to revoke the order immediately. In eighteen seventy however now, president grant appoints Jews to dozens of offices including the first ever Jewish territorial governor in Washington. Rabbi. Is it mayor wise says that this territorial governorship quote shows that President Grant has revoked general grants notorious. Order. Number Eleven close quote. You. Appears to be genuinely repentant. Finally. I'll remind you that our youthful general-turned-presidents spoke of wanting to study the treatment of native Americans and do better. Right off the bat you let's get one thing right by getting General Ille- Parker put in his commissioner of Indian, Affairs Now in case you've forgotten who is he was on ulysses staff during the war. He wrote up the surrender at Apple Matic's. He's also a Seneca Satan. That's right. Ellie is a native American, and he's the first one to be in charge of the United States relations with indigenous peoples. With. Elise aid you listen acts what he calls his peace policy. Just as he said, regarding reconstruction during his presidential campaign euless wants peace. Hoping to achieve that with indigenous peoples he establishes a ten civilians strong board of Indian commissioners to provide oversight for the Bureau of Indian Affairs? He then actually listened to their advice. At their recommendation, the president ends the use of political appointees Indian agents. They'll be hiring those who want peace, which often means quakers. To overstate or Mantis the peace policy is far from perfect. Between, being pressed areas of poor soil for farming called reservations and not wanting to lose their way of life native Americans are on board with quote. Unquote civilizing. Meanwhile White Americans are flocking west pushing indigenous peoples, offering central lands and expecting the US army to protect them in the process. With so much more to say here but for I think the third time today, let me just say there's a lot going on at once and we'll circle back to these stories properly in later episodes. For now, let's stick with the grant administration. In eighteen seventy two euless goes. Up. For. Reelection. But. Just like his entire presidency. The election will be rocked by scandal. This one involves vp Schuyler Colfax and a railroad construction company known as Credit Mobilier of America. It seems that for the past five years or so the guys over at credit mobilier been swindling the federal government. They've been overbilling for railroad construction costs on federally funded builds and pocketing the extra cash. But it gets worse. Back in eighteen sixty seven a few congressman got suspicious of the company's inflated costs and tried to launch an investigation. The company's directors couldn't have that. So they bribed at least a dozen congressmen with discounts on stock in the company and the investigation died. Then, speaker of the House Schuyler Colfax was one of the men who accepted the bribes. Now in eighteen seventy, two euless learns about scholars part in the scam in dumps him from the presidential ticket. Good Call Ulysses. Current Speaker of the House James Blaine won't let the scam go that easily. You think one guy losing vp slot is enough. Not. For James. He opens an actual investigation stating quote, a charge of bribery of members is the gravest that can be made in a legislative body. It seems to me that this charged demands prompt thorough and impartial investigation close quote. The credit mobilier fair almost outshines the election of eighteen, seventy two. But you list wins with fifty five percent of the popular vote and a slew of electoral votes after his opponent dies and electors switched their votes. Seriously the electoral college can be so fascinating. Now he has to stay down another four years in the White House. As you list begins his second term in office things don't come down. A financial crisis looms on the horizon. Now most economic crises. The impending downturn has multiple domestic and international causes. All just give the broad strokes. For the last few years, US investors have speculated wildly in the railroad industry. Hello Credit mobilier. And that bubble is ready to burst in addition there were huge property and business losses in the Great Chicago Fire in eighteen seventy one and the Boston fire nineteen seventy-two. Across the pond in Europe the German Empire decided last year to stop minting silver coins which has lowered demand for American silver exports. Then there's a financial crash in Vienna whose ripple effects are felt even in the US. All of these setbacks combine into the perfect financial storm. But something happens in the fall of eighteen seventy three. The takes this from tropical squall to category five hurricane. On September eighteenth eighteen seventy three J KOKIN company declare bankruptcy. The death of this railroad investment firms since Wall Street into a tailspin. Within weeks bank reserves in New York City alone plummet from fifty million to seventeen million. The New York Stock Exchange even closes for ten days. This starts a full blown depression across the country, not a great setup for ulysses second. term, agenda. But the general who didn't give up on the battlefield at Shiloh won't give up now. euless meets with Ohio Senator John Sherman and yes. John is related to William Tecumseh the brothers. Anyway the President Senator worked together to pass the Specie payment resumption act. It sounds fancy, but basically, it takes the US back to having only gold backed paper money, Aka the gold standard and constricts the money supply. It's pretty much the opposite of what a twenty-first-century president might do but the hard money president hopes this bill curb the depression in the long run. Unfortunately, you can't wait and see. His New Treasury Secretary Benjamin Bristow has been cleaning house in his department and he comes across yet another scandal. and. This one will overshadow anything that's happened in the grant administration. Let me tell you the whole story. In. June eighteen seventy four you're listening Benjamin Bristow as secretary of the Treasury. Bins kentucky-born Republican who uses whatever government office he holds promote African American rights including suffrage universal desegregated education. On top of that battle of Shiloh, veteran ben has assigned himself task of cleaning up government corruption. He plans to quote purge the Republican Party of all rogues and satisfy the people that we mean to have honest government. Close quote. Ben Gets to work right away firing incompetent cronies and creating efficiency out of waste and almost immediately, the treasury secretary notices will Har- inconsistencies in whiskey tax collection reports. In October Treasury Department investigators check out what's happening with the tax collectors in Missouri. But everything looks clean. Little to claim. BEN SMELLS A rat..

"That's a hard scene to move on from but we still have unanswered questions. What have Lincoln's killer. Where is John Wilkes Booth or his co-conspirators to get these answers. I need to go back to March 15th meet John and his accomplices and hear how they're planning to bring down. The union came about rewind Thursday. It's March 15th at gautier's restaurant on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC a group of six men sit in a private room eating a late meal and talking in low voices off. John Wilkes Booth leads the conversation the handsome mustachioed actor sits with Lewis Powell and George. Atzerodt Who we've already met John Sarah whose mother runs a well-known boarding house here in town and Michael a Lachlan and Samuel Arnold the only one missing from this Inner Circle of conspirators is round-faced Davey Harold, but John and the Others make plans. Anyway, here's the deal John has been circling around the idea of kidnapping link and since last year's election, he failed once and is chomping at the bit to try again. So he and his co-conspirators have just scoped out Ford's Theater on 10th Street Lincoln often attends shows there with John's inside knowledge and connections to the theater. It makes a perfect place to stash the president and hold him for the exchange of Confederate pows. Sera tells us quote after some difficulty. Everything was amicably arranged and we separated woke 5:00 in the morning close quote. Now. All they have to do is wait for Lincoln to go to a show but nearly a month later John is still waiting. I guess the president of a country wage war with itself doesn't go the theater. That much is Bobby Lee surrenders to you list at Appomattox and the fighting comes to an end John's playing grows from kidnapping to assassination. And that's why on April eleventh when John Davey and Luis are standing on the White House lawn listening to Linkin speak the Confederate sympathizing actor makes more than an idle threat phone number what John says after hearing Lincoln wax eloquent on reconstruction. That is the last speech. He will ever make by God. I'll put him through only three days later John sees an opportunity to go through with his long-anticipated plan a little after 10 a.m. On Friday April 14th. John goes to Ford's Theater to pick up his mail wage. See the actor doesn't actually have a permanent address. So he has his fan mail as well as his bills and personal letters sent here. While at the front desk John over here is a messenger requesting that to upper-level theater boxes be reserved for President Lincoln General Grant and they're guess like the soldiers. He never was John jumps into action across the afternoon the actor runs several important errands like renting a horse for getaway transport. Well John's out on Pennsylvania Avenue a carriage Rolls by with the Ulysses and Julia Grant inside if you listen, Julia will be at the theater. It's night. Why are they riding toward the train station right. Now the Curious actor mounts his horse and chases down the carriage. Julia describes smoked. We were nearing the railway station when a man overtook us Drew alongside and leaning down. Into our Carriage then he wheeled his horse and rode furiously away close quote John seems to have confirmed. Grants won't be at Ford's Theater tonight. That information doesn't distract him at 8:00 John meets with Lewis George and gave you to hand out the final assignment. It's time to put his plot to assassinate the president and leave the United States government leaderless into motion..

"Likewise, there was an to automatically have the chairman of the joint. Chiefs of Staff elevated to a five star rank, but that too went nowhere. Now the title of this episode is the six star general, and you're probably wondering when the six star is going to come into play. Well here is where it gets interesting. In nineteen nineteen. Created a new rank called general of the armies of the United States. Note that this is plural as opposed to the five star rank of general of the army. This rank was given to then a four star General John. pershing he created his own insignia general grant in the nineteenth century, and he selected four gold stars to distinguish it from the four star rank of general, which had four silver stars when the new five star ranks were announced in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, four, the secretary of war Henry. Stimson was asked. If these new ranks were the same or different than the rank, which was given to general pershing, he said, and I quote it appears the intent of the army was to make the general of the army's senior in grade to the general of the Army I have advised Congress that the war department concurs in such proposed action. As pershing was still alive when the five star appointments were made, it wasn't a totally trivial issue. That means the United States does have a rank on the books, although almost never discussed above that of the five star general of the army. This isn't unprecedented. In the world, there are some countries which do have a rank above field marshall. The rank is usually called general or grand. Marshal the rank is mostly given by dictators to themselves or as an honor to some great general. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six congress decided to posthumously promote George Washington to the rank of general of the armies of the United States, and declared by statute that no one else could ever be ranked higher than Washington. The only other attempt to elevate someone living the rank was Douglas, McArthur in preparation for the invasion of Japan MacArthur was going to be given Supreme Command, as there would be several five star, generals and admirals involved the idea was floated of promoting MacArthur to the rank of general of the armies and explicitly making it a six star rank with a six star insignia. The idea was dropped a few weeks. After Japan's surrender in his service record notes. The promotion didn't occur due to the lack of necessity for such a rank. However there was a movement to promote macarthur to the six star rank for the next twenty years up to including and after his death. However nothing became of it. After he died. There was a movement for posthumous promotion. The Institute of Heraldry even mocked up a six star insignia in the end, the problems of advancing macarthur above his World War Two contemporaries, some of whom are still alive, were too complex and political, so the proposal was dropped. So yes, there is an equivalent of a six star general rank on the books and the US military, but it has only been given to two people in History John, J., pershing and George Washington generals of the armies of the United States of America..

The policeman who arrested a president

"These days from from Boise to Britain TV. Talking heads and Barstool philosophers have been pondering one of the great mysteries of the US Constitution. Russian can the president of United States actually be indicted arrested handcuffed. The whole deal is. He's hit possible the prevailing answer. Is this nobody. But that's not entirely true. Ropel President Ulysses s grant knows or should I say new in eighteen seventy two while president the grant was arrested at the corner of thirteenth in 'em in the district this was not a high but it was at least theoretically speaking speaking a misdemeanor. The man who led the north to victory in the civil war was busted for speeding on his horse. Grants arrest was confirmed a few years ago by then district police chief Cathy Lanier. The story was told in a remarkable arkell but obviously forgotten article in the September twenty seventh nineteen o eight edition of The Washington Evening Star under the headline Only policeman who ever arrested a president. That policeman was William H West. A black man who had fought in the civil war since his retirement. The story said he has decided to let the public know the true story of the arrest. It begins with grants love of fast horses. General grant was an ardent admirers of a good horse in love. Nothing better then to sit behind a pair of spirited animals the star source said she was a good driver and sometimes let them out to try their metal and that's where grant as president wrote into the law. The police had been receiving complaints of speeding speeding or starregistry after mother and child had been run over and badly injured officer. West was dispatched to investigate as West. Spoke to witnesses another group of speeding horse. Carriages headed toward him including one driven by the president of the United States policeman. West held up his hand for them to stop the story. Said grant was driving a pair of fast steppers in. He had some difficulty in halting them but this he managed to do grant was a bit testy home. Well officer he said what do you want with me. Hello West replied. I want to inform you Mr President that you are violating the law by speeding along this street. Your fast driving sir. Her has set the example for a lot of other gentlemen. The president apologized promised. It wouldn't happen again. Galloped away away but grant could not curb his need for speed the next evening westwards patrolling at the corner the thirteenth and m streets when the president came barreling through again this time speeding so fast that it took him an entire block to stop. When West approached him? Grin was cocky. The Star article said he had a smile smile on his face that made him look like a schoolboy. Who'd been taught by teacher? Grants excuse for speeding was not unlike one. That's the probably being given somewhere right now on America's rose he had no idea he had been going so fast. West was sympathetic. But I I am very sorry Mr President to have to do it. He said for you are the the chief of the nation and I am nothing that a policeman but duty is duty Sir and I will have to place you under your arrest. It's worth pointing out here that standards of journalism especially with quotations were. We're not as rigorous back then as today so it's nearly impossible to know if this is the whole truth and nothing but the truth however linear did confirm the arrest and there are other historical references to it anyway grant in several of his speeding buddies who were also arrested went with west to the police station. He President of the United States was ordered to to put up twenty bucks as collateral. A trial was held the next day. Thirty two ladies of the most refined character and surroundings voluntarily came into the court and testified against the drivers. The Star story said the cases were contested bitterly. The judge imposed heavy fines and the scathing rebuke to the speeding drivers which didn't include the president.
