Secret Societies

"Welcome to kids myths and Mysteries. I'm your host kept crumb today. I'm going to take a look at secret societies. I'll be examining how these societies have affected most major changes in American society how they've taken advantage of what is often referred to as the American go along attitude and high threshold for official misdeeds personality in 2004. George W. Bush was challenged through the election process by John Kerry despite the glaring differences in their politics. They were forever joined-at-the-hip off by a secret society both were and are members of the order of Skull and Bones Bush being a third-generation member father George HW Bush's secret name was Joe Sugg his grandfather Prescott shoulder Bush actually stole for the order one of their prized possessions. Geronimo's skull the Press caught onto the connection and they asked the cap. Dates about the Skull and Bones though as separately their answers were the same. It's a secret from the confines of the Tomb the name of the structure that houses the order that's calling bones may have come precedent Senators judges cabinet secretaries plenty of CIA field agents many of the members have been that tightens of finance and Industry Henry Luce founder of time-life Fortune and natural reviews William Buckley to name just to how are members chosen you might ask the selection procedure for new members hasn't changed since 1832 each year 15 new members are recruited over the past 150 years about 2,600 Yale graduates have been initiated at any given time around five hundred members are active and it's estimated from Fringe sources that about one-quarter of that number are actively working to carry out the objective. Of the order whatever that is, however, many lose interest and stop attending meetings and are referred to as silent dropouts at the beginning of this podcast. I said be examining how secret societies affected the American public aside from the judges and Senators that are members of skull and bones in shaping our laws. If we look back at the 2018 election of George W bush who defeated John Kerry the winner wasn't determined until the following day when Kerry decided not to dispute Bush's win in a Midwestern State of Ohio could carry stepping down have something to do with the fact that George W bush held more clout within the Skull and Bones was the decision an unspoken agreement between the two bones month Wednesday, but the Bohemian Club like the Skull and Bones in some ways yet older and more widespread across the United States there also a secret society job. There is so much speculation about Freemasons influence on American money there with that in mind take a closer. Look at the u.s. One dollar bill with a Jeweler's loupe examined the one on the front to the right of the bill. Now look closer at the top left corner or curve in the design that in cases the one there, you'll see an owl could there be a connection between the owl on the one dollar bill and the giant statue of an owl in the Bohemian clubs meeting place in California

An deep dive into Trump’s 2020 State of the Union speech

"I'm Audie Cornish in Washington earlier we heard from president Donald Trump and we just heard the voice of Michigan governor Gretchen Wimmer who presented the democratic response to president trump stated the union speech we have several folks here tonight to do some analysis about all that we heard we're gonna start within the within eighteen L. Shammi who was the chief of staff to speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi and Brendan Buck who was a spokesman for the former house speaker Paul Ryan bring you guys both in for your expertise how what we heard tonight now if you're on Twitter there were a lot of conservatives you you're you're using a lot of exclamation points and saying this is the best thing that they've ever heard Democrats not saying the same I want to start with you Brendan what did you make of the president's focus tonight how we deliver that yeah and this is certainly a confident president in a way that you know you might expect a president who's at his all time high in in the latest Gallup poll who is just really defeated impeachment and have the Democrats sort of in disarray he started off with all of those economic status just making the case that things are going well in this country talk about how we're we're not gonna turn back and really was just riding high right some of his quotes it insane three years of my administration three and a half million working age people of join the work force in leaning really hard into that at the top in it and it was a lot of job well done on my part and very little agenda going forward I counted this is not an official count but I counted only ten things in which he is calling on Congress to do anything in a lot of those were relatively small ball usually a president comes in with a big agenda here's all the things I want to do and you really have to dig in there to find them some of it is funding neo natal research funding a child tax credit sanctuary cities sending Americans to Mars things like that that don't really come together in a real way but another take way as as sue was talking about from the room if I've seen a lot of state of the union this was as divided and cold as I've ever seen you could almost hear brewing from some of the Democrats and that is just really stark and the Nancy Pelosi interactions yeah she she tried to shake his hand and he did do it she actually tore up his speech at the end that that's remarkable I've never seen anything like that the team let's have you jump in on your former boss there people were watching her and her behavior very closely but first your reaction to some of the things you heard tonight shoring it was a fascinating speech the king can I give you a look into president trump's mine and that we were hoping that he would meet the commander in chief test but then said that I believe he produced a speech that was made for TV made for TV moments and Brandon is exactly right some of the big issues bi partisan issues that he could work with Democrats on infrastructure he had two lines and infrastructure of prescription drugs he really did not go into specifics as to get me a bell and I will sign it these are opportunities lost a lucky get a showing at age she has to do is to tell Democrats thank you for working with me on U. S. M. C. A. and he didn't right you mentioned that it was signed by it was that yeah and and I and also in terms of I've I've seen many states to the union I've been there and I think this is stands up to when president Obama was to during the ACA negotiations and trying to get the bill passed it was it was that same feeling that you had in those to complete the process I want to take a moment now to fact check some of what we heard both the president's speech in the democratic response NPR's Scott Horsley is here to help us do that welcome Scott they do with it this speech was kind of the theme of it was the great American come back the president spent considerable time talking about the economy both his and the prior administration's but here's a sample of that in just three short years we have shattered the mentality of American decline and we have rejected the downsizing of Americans destiny we have totally rejected the downsizing we're moving forward at a pace that was unimaginable just a short time ago and we are never ever going back Scott who was Anderson economy were looking at the one the president's describing characteristically here Donald Trump exaggerates how strong the economy is now and how weak it was when he came into office the fact is the economy was pretty good in twenty seventeen and it's still pretty good now the economy last year grew two point three percent that is exactly the average for the last decade the U. S. added six point seven million jobs in the first thirty five months after trump took office pretty impressive but not unprecedented in the previous thirty five months the U. S. added nearly eight million jobs so really less of a comeback than a more less straight line continuation a lot of people also measure the economy by the size of their own paychecks right in this president described this as a blue collar boom after decades of flat and falling incomes wages are rising fast and wonderfully they are rising fastest for low income workers who have seen a sixteen percent pay increase since my election Scott Horsley is our chief economics correspondent and of course was a long time White House correspondents so to help us understand how he's trying to frame these specific numbers wage wages have been rising faster than inflation that's good for workers there read real purchasing power's been going up but wage gains of actually moderated in recent months in the twelve months ending in December average wages rose just two point nine percent compared to three point four percent earlier in the year and that deceleration in pay hikes is a little surprising given the very low unemployment rate we have now is encouraging as the president says that wages for people at the bottom of the income ladder have been rising faster than those the top that's partly because a lot of states have raised their minimum wages the present also talked about the very large stock market gains that we've seen since the election of twenty sixteen it is way up not seventy percent as he said but the Dow's up fifty seven percent stock ownership are is heavily concentrated among the rich eighty four percent of those gains have gone to just the top ten percent of earners and forty five percent of Americans don't own any stock at all I want to pause for a second and go to Ron Elving because when you think about the last impeach president he was giving a seat at the union is also the person we attribute this it's the economy stupid kind of sloganeering and so is this something that the president should lean hard into especially given what his democratic rivals are talking about why would he not why would he not take credit for where the car a condom use today presidents have suffered when the economy was poor even if it wasn't their fault and even when it wasn't really that bad and even when it was recovering I'm thinking here by George HW bush in nineteen ninety two very short very shallow recession and yet he was pummeled with it and that has happened in other occasions and we've also seen presidents come and office riding on a long recovery such as the one from say about two thousand nine two thousand ten forward into two thousand seventeen and tack on a few more years with policies and there's no question that this president has cut regulations and cut taxes what particularly for a corporations and to some to be wealthy individuals which has juice the economy if you're further but he did come in riding on a long recovery which may be slowing down a little bit now but he basically takes credit for all of it and says that when he came into office it was a situation of American carnage I want to come back to Scott Horsley here because another issue one of factcheck health care promises the president spoke about also Michigan governor Gretchen Widmer who delivered the democratic response here's an example of something the president spoke about one hundred and thirty two lawmakers in this room have endorsed legislation to impose a socialist takeover of our healthcare system wiping out the private health insurance plans of one hundred and eighty million very happy Americans to those watching at home tonight I want you to know we will never let socialism destroy American health care members we talk about the language is using their this is obviously divisive issue even within the Democratic Party some of the presidential candidates on the democratic side Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren have favored a single payer plan that would eliminate private insurance in warrants case over a period of time other Democrats though want to preserve a role for private insurance for those people who want it we should also point out the president did make what he called an iron clad pledged to protect patients with pre existing condition did he explain how we do that he he did not in this this is surely the biggest Whopper in tonight's speech the president knows a protection for patients with pre existing conditions as popular so he pays lip service to it but if anything his administration has has whittled away at those protections and of course they're they're fighting to overturn the affordable Care Act which is where those protections come from I want to talk about another big issue border security the president talked about this one even before he you know what it was the nominee and hit that thing again tonight my administration has undertaken an unprecedented effort to secure the southern border of the United States this statement seems vague but it's got I believe you've kind of dug into it what do you know the administration has made a series of sweeping changes to limit access to asylum seekers at the border I'd sent tens of thousands of migrants back to Mexico to wait for their day in immigration courts and administration credits those policies for a very sharp drop in the number of migrants who are being taken into custody the border in a last may we saw that number peek at a recent high about a hundred forty thousand last month the number was down to around twenty nine thousand so a drop of about eighty percent our allies in this gets at some of what we would call kind of red meat or culture were issues that we heard the president talking about he said he was calling upon members of Congress to pass legislation banning late term abortion of babies he talked about the idea of a sanctuary cities and kind of going after sanctuary states how did he balance this part of the speech with what we heard about the economy well I think those are the two parts of the president's campaign message one is to say you're better off now than you were four years ago the economy is great he said it's greater than ever before in American history but also the president is at heart a culture warrior and he believes that cultural issues are more powerful than economic ones and there is some evidence that might suggest he's right for instance the parts of the country that are reaping the most benefits from the trump economy are the ones where his approval ratings are the worst and the parts of the country that are not reaping the benefits that are doing badly record farm bankruptcy is a manufacturing recession those are the parts of the country where his numbers are the highest why I think because of the cultural issues he's pretty face the voters in those places think he's protecting them against criminal immigrants he talked about those he highlighted once again this is a staple for him a family whose family member has been killed by an undocumented immigrant so these are the two parts of his message one is you never had it so good and the other is you know the Democrats want to ruin your your way of life and that's the message to the public we want to talk about what it was like inside the capitol congressional correspondent kills the smell is there tonight moments ago she spoke with the second highest ranking Republican representative in the house that Steve Scalise we did see a pretty tepid response from Democrats on most things including things other were bye bye things that should have been bipartisan that always have been bipartisan it almost is is like they have this personal hatred against the president and they're letting it see through where they're opposing good policies and you should always put your personal differences on the

Explainer 167: Why has Trump ramped up his war on the environment?

"As a people, we want and need economic growth. But now we must also expect environmental responsibility and respect the natural world. It was a Republican President, George Bush, senior, and not democrat to help stay through one of the most ambitious pieces of climate change legislation today, eight amending the Clean Air Act in nineteen ninety two limit air pollution, and tackle, everything from urban smoke to acid rain while his son fad less. Well, refusing to ratify the key Oto protocol in two thousand and one and helping tank brand America around the world. George Hw mate, an important point, protecting the environment and advancing big business didn't need to be mutually exclusive when one does, if the current Oakmont of the White House, don't. Out, J Trump has ever listened to that speech. We've seen enough of this stalemate. It's time to clear the air. You know, I think we will indeed since moving into Pennsylvania Avenue in January of two thousand seventeen Trump's administration has mounted a concerted effort to refu- climate change science and loosen regulations in favor of the fossil fuel industry. So how did the forty fifth president of the US become such a champion and chief of the environmental skeptics? And they say as and why as ever with Trump. The answer is complicated and contradictory Trump's musings, own the environment, actually predate his ascendancy to the presidency taking his favorite communications medium Twitter. He regularly lamb bastard. His predecessor Barrack Obama for wasting federal money tackling global climate change and as recently as two thousand fifteen he cooled the whole thing a hoax. All of this with the global warming and that a lot of it's a hoax. It's a hoax. I mean it's a money making industry. Okay. But then, just as we're starting to think with seeing patent Donald Trump before his many about tons of trying to throw us off the scent in two thousand nine for example, he signed an open letter that challenge diploma to come up with a more meaningful climate change policy will recently, his stowed, the importance of clean-air, and who can forget, those clean co comments while allowing measures that will undermine it often his framed, his stones as a business competitively issue right now. We're at the cleanest, we've ever been. That's very important to me. But if went clean, but every other place on earth is dirty. That's not so good. Of course, actions, speak louder than woods and ever since the now shamed and departed fossil fuel politics. Scott Pruitt was installed to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. We knew something was a mess, and no action speaks, louder than the decision to put after the Paris climate agreement. A huge blow even if many of the US's largest companies have found to continue following its rulebook. More recently, the assault on climate change has talked people working in government agencies pressuring staff to avoid using the words climate change in speeches. They have also been moved meant how scientific studies carried out by doing away with worst case scenario projections, and several members of Trump's inner circle are pushing to create a climate change panel. That will challenge environmental assessments, according to a recent New York Times report, the chasm between George H W Bush, and Trump may simply be a reflection of radically different times, the age of political decorum, and bipartisanship Bush, happily mentioned the Democrats in the room in that speech along gone. Meaning a compromise on the environment is unlikely. And then there are the people that Trump has chosen to surround himself with many of them, committed climate change deniers, just listen to this Arctic Council speech by secretary of state, Mike Pompeo earlier this month. Arctic is at the forefront of opportunity and abundance, it houses thirteen percent of the world's undiscovered oil thirty percent of its undiscovered gas and an abundance of uranium rare earth minerals gold diamonds, and millions of square miles of untapped. Resources fisheries glory, dark, money donors, so competent, knee, described by New Yorker journalist, and Monaco, big interview, e Jane man, also doubtlessly have a part to play thanks to the Mercer's and the cokes, deep pockets among others, what was once fringe thinking is now part at the Republican mainstream and that includes the environment. We know that Trump and embrace of science quackery conspiracy theories doesn't have the best grasp of the facts, and whether it's someone who has the presidential ear distorted vision that the US will lose out to China, if it abandoned fossil fuels, despite the as in power moved to dominate the clean energy market, all simply watching too much FOX and friends, the whole climate crisis as they call. It is not only fake news. It's fake science. Remain be sure. But that also doesn't mean that we should doubt for one moment. The convictions of this administration. My administration is putting an end to the war on call for Monaco in New York. I'm as Docker.

The Bush legacy in the Gulf

"So US troops went to Saudi Arabia that pissed off a lot of people in Saudi Arabia, especially some of the more hardline Muslim player clerics because it was like, oh, these infidel troops are in Saudi Arabia. We should have had like Muslim troops and also like Saudi had been spending all this money their military. And then all of a sudden, they're like, wait even spending all this money, and you still have to call America. Like, what the hell have you been spending this money on then? So it it made a lot of people mad, including a person you also may remember Osama bin Laden who is very mad as a result at the Saudis for doing this and at the Americans. So you have that kind of kicked off that legacy. Right. That we know where that kind of ended or hasn't ended as the case may be you also have the fact that afterwards the US forces convinced Saddam to draw from Kuwait and go back to Baghdad so George H W Bush meat decision on purpose. Not to continue to send American. All the way to Baghdad to try to overthrow Saddam. He continues to do things like threaten the region and threaten America and just in general behave very badly, and because of that decision some people in the George H W Bush administration thought shit, maybe we should have overthrown him. A lot of those people also happen to show back up when his son George W Bush is then president, and they're they're they're like looks at I'm still there. He's hasn't gone away. He still behaving badly he still threatening the region and that in a large part helped lay the groundwork for okay now for real in two thousand three we're going to overthrow Saddam. And so that kicked off this whole world that we live in now with the Middle East in pay off. I don't know about that take on it. Right. Like, it is true that the George W Bush people decided, partly because George H W Bush had gotten them entangled Niro. To launch the Iraq war as we know it today, but they didn't have to do, you know? Absolutely. And I don't wanna lose sight of the fact that when George H W Bush was president some Hussein literally invaded and tried to annex neighbor rate. Like, what are you going to do? Are you just going to let him do that? This is an Russia. That's a nuclear armed power. Right. This was a country testing the limits of what it could get away with the US Marshall international coalition to stop the forcible annexation of another country's territory. Right. That to me seems like an accomplishment defending Yemi where people criticized Bush for Bruening sovereignty in Panama, people praise him for defending it in the Kuwaits. Yeah. I think it's really interesting to note that when he passed when George Hw past towers in Kuwait were lit up with his portrait and with Kuwait and US flags he is still revered and people name their children Bush. Like in Kuwait, it he is still seeing as this savior in a non religious sense, right? That that helped Kuwait get its country back. So there's a real lasting legacy there to probably the biggest and hottest to wrap your mind around accomplishment of George Hw, at least in my mind. This is my peck is the way that he shepherd at the end of the Cold War. It's easy for us to lose track of what was happening at the time when Bush came into office, right? The Soviet Union was disintegrating. The Berlin Wall fell in nineteen eighty nine right in Bush won the nineteen eighty eight elections came into office in January nineteen eighty nine. He was dealing with this massive transition in global politics where the state of Russia's we know today was emerging in lots of different Soviet republics. Like Georgia were leaving the country that they were part of the Soviets had nuclear weapons stationed in a bunch of other countries like Ukraine, for instance, which wanted to keep the nuclear weapons when it became independent which would. Been entirely different world. If you can imagine nukes being all around Europe, where the Soviets station them or central Asians in cases. This was a massive massive problem. Another facet of it was what to do about Germany to allow Germany to reunified we oppose German reunification or the terms that we sat for east and west to come together. Again, what do we do about NATO this alliance that was structured as an anti-soviet organization, but now the Warsaw Pact essentially, just disintegrate, right?.

"It's the same thing every single time. The. The jackassery that was on parade. The last couple of days with the state funerals and recognitions and honoring of former President George Hw Bush passing. I'm trying to think of what's what's a good way to sum up. How I feel about this. No. No, I think knows a good word. And hey, you know, we are about to embark on twenty nine hundred on this show, which will be the theme of this year's what Nobis. You don't have to like and admire people you don't like Meyer. We ask you to pretend to just like, you know, if people in this audience, most of them are probably conservative. We have the passing of a democratic president in the near future. You don't want to pretend to like in admire Jimmy Carter don't how about though, you could pretend to be an adult could you pretend that, you know, just this isn't, you know, regardless of what you think about George Herbert Walker Bush doesn't mean you can't like an intelligent conversation about his political legacy because it is in the news right now. And we are we've talked about it on this show. But the trolling of the dog that trolling of the family. I don't understand. So on one hand, you guys want us to acknowledge Donald Trump is not a Christian. And then you want us to criticize him for not reciting the apostles creed. And yet, you guys represent a media enterprise. That would know the apostle. Creed from Apollo creed. And is out there on a daily basis. Broadcasting in ways to deconstruct everything that the apostles creed is about there's so much dumb. I mean, we are doing zapruder film of whether Hillary Clinton has snubbed Malania. Was it contrived that they that that George W and and Michelle Obama reenacted the breath mint piece of gum incident from earlier. No. No just. Tri delta being adult this is and when you know Jimmy Carter's not getting younger. I would imagine we're closer to the day of his state funeral than we are than we're further away from it. When that happens. No, that's doesn't mean you had to like all of his policies doesn't mean you can't even agree with him. I mean after all the reason he's being honored is he was a president of the United States. He made decisions. You don't have to agree with all of them. But we're not trolling. You know, the Carter family cat. Okay. And I will push back with maximum maximum prejudice anybody on our side. Even if they work at this label that tries that crap. No, no. How about this? We're dulce. I can we try being adults? I this has been reprehensible, and I haven't really I've seen it go down. I just haven't addressed it. Because I can't think of a way to address it that I don't become a party to the same snark the same immaturity. So I've just chosen just to not say anything rather than just adding more fuel to an inexcusable fire. Aaron you have some thoughts on this. I wanna ask a dumb question. Just because. Maybe maybe there's an explanation here. Maybe people don't know, maybe we can use this as an opportunity to educate. Why why is it you seem to be thinking that it's wrong to troll a family while they're grieving and whether having a funeral you seem to think that's wrong. Why is that why is that wrong? Steve, you know, what that I know what you're doing there? But that's why we're here, isn't it? Why is it wrong? If we don't ignore that whether or not you agreed with their policies as human beings made in the image of God. If we can't love our neighbors. We love ourselves where how would we want to be treated if we were in this sort of situation? You know, we said the golden rule posted at every single one of our schools do unto others as you would have them doing to you. If we're going to jettison all those things, then then I don't have another rationale why it's wrong. I don't I don't do you. Do you have another rational Todd? Why throw? No, my my level of despair in watching in fact, without those things Don lemon saying, I I would refuse to shake the president's hand. If I were there is actually more intellectually honest, by that moment, any more than any other moment in terms of getting your political rocks off, this is it was appalling on both sides sides. I the day I'm not being partisan in this..

"Five five AM seven fifty WSB. Depend on it. For danish. Oh. The guy answered the phone said, he I think he can hear you. But he hasn't said anything were most of the day. I said dad, I love you, and you've been a wonderful father. And the last words he would ever say on earth were. I love you too. Wow. That was part of the really beautiful remarks that George W Bush gave the eulogy for his father that was just moments ago the ceremony the the services for former President George Hw Bush are underway in the National Cathedral, and they are set to bury him here. Shortly. Welcome to the show. I'm Dana Loesch Eddie lash on Twitter official Dana lash on Facebook. And they were really a it was a very interesting scene. And I have to talk about it a little bit. Because there's been a lot of discussion in media about all of this. Particularly where it concerns. The who who is all they're all of the individuals that are there at the services and in looking at it you had in the front row all of the former president. Carter and Clinton and Hillary Clinton, and you had the Obamas. And then you had the trumps the last wants to come in. And on the other side, you had the Bush family, and it was interesting when the president came in and they said Hello to everyone with the Clintons, and then George W Bush came over and said Hello to everyone shook hands with everyone in handed Michelle Obama, eight years, either a mentor a piece of gum, which was exactly what he did at John McCain's service. And I think that that was a joke. Like here, you go just in case because we're not sitting by each other this time, and it was kind of funny, and it was neat to see everybody get together and just be civil. I think that we are starved for that in the United States were starved for civility. And even if they probably all still hate each other. Well, at least most of them the fact that they are physically together, at least in that room is I think says something something entirely, and that that was good to see because the way, and I mean, I got I got the sense to. That. I don't think it's what I don't think. The media one set. For instance, neuropolitics New York Times politics tweeted, presidential funerals offer Americans. A welcome chance to reflect on the nature of public service. And this way presidents can be more unifying than death than they ever were in life. A friend of mine had said, well is it the media allows for such unity in death where they would have never accepted such unity in life. And I actually do agree with that to an extent. It's not a universal statement. But I do think that there is there something to it. I do think that there is. I think that there stands more to gain more eyeballs more all of that then with with conflict, and with with strife and controversy and everything else, then then the not. I don't there's not as much attention otherwise. And it it was you know, I really thought about that. And just some of the hot takes that. I that I saw is pretty amazing. For instance. I know the daily show had had said something to that effect. They were tweet. They they had tweeted out I pull this up. I remarked on this. They said reunions are so awkward, and what they had where we're images of Trump tweeting about every single person that he was sitting with. Yeah. And. Politics are awful maybe for once. They could focus something good like in spite of all of this people are still getting together under a common purpose to honor somebody and give comfort to agreeing family. Why is there why the media is hell bent on keeping score? And they believe that score outweighs grace. And that's a huge problem. Yeah. It's politics. And they've all said something ignorant about him everyone in their setting something ignorant about somebody else. And. Contrast that with how gracious everyone is acting right now because it's under a common purpose heaven forbid people focus on that heaven forbid people have decency for one afternoon. I've had a lot of people bring up to me. For instance, the fact, and I mentioned we talked a little bit about this the other day that, you know, H W Bush strongly disagreed with Wayne LaPierre and resigned from the NRA because of what Wayne LaPierre had said in regards to Janet Reno and the the how Waco happened in Ruby Ridge, and and Elian Gonzales deportation and all of that stuff and and Lapeer had called those tactics. He said it was tactics of Jack booted thugs, and h w took exception to that and very publicly resigned from the NRA and all of this stuff and everyone keeps bringing that back up and say, oh, we'll look at that. And that happened. What was like a ninety five? I was in high school when that happened. So I don't know why everyone's like, well where were you here? And I'm like, I was literally like science class, probably and. It's interesting that they they think I mean tau, although I look for crying out loud. But they kept bringing that up as a way to sail. Well, look at and remember remember, these are the people that excoriated Hw and hated him, but they will happily grab something that they think can be used as a casual against someone. They dislike and use it the ba-. I mean, and I disagree with H W on that. I disagree with his perception of law appears marks and that his remarks in that. I mean, those when you know what happened at Waco is insane. We're having a Ruby Ridge was insane. Healing Gonzales was insane. And not having due process. Yeah. We've seen how that works in some other countries that employ tyranny instead of a democratic process in a constitutional Republic such as ours. However. Does that does that nullify the the compassion that you feel towards a grieving family? Does it nullify his heroism in World War Two? Does it take away from the fact that he flew fifty eight missions in World War Two. Does it take away from that? He was an honorable family man and a grandfather and a great grandfather. Does it diminish that in any way, the fact that I disagreed with him on that? No. It doesn't. And that's what a lot of people in this country. Don't understand. Disagreements are only as big as you allow for them to be and when you start using a disagreement on policy or or a belief to diminish someone else's humanity. Well, then you're the one that has the problem in the sole not the person with whom you disagree. You're the person who needs to inspect that black spot in their heart. Not the person with him. You disagree? And so people can bringing that up over and over again, and I still disagree with him on it. That's not going to change. I still maintain that. When LaPierre had said, and how that went down that was horrible. How that went down with those with those individuals. It was horrible how Waco happened. It was horrible how Ruby Ridge happened? And yes, there were those were some pretty heavy handed that was some pretty heavy handed jack-booted that took place. I don't disagree with that. But I also understand where Hw is coming from to. He's been on the other side of it. And he knows a lot of the people that serve in in in government. And he knows a lot of the people that that serve as in the FBI, and by and large most people are good decent people. It's sad that the actions of some. Completely overtaken somehow outweigh the the underappreciated under reported and mostly unnoticed actions of the good. But see that's the problem going back to the way the that what we're seeing in the media. The good always goes ignored. The good always goes unnoticed and the good always goes unappreciated. And in those instances where something good does happen. And it pierces that bubble. Most in part to to Sharon on social media. It goes viral it explodes. That's why you see all of these stories of people helping people that are that get millions of views people talk about it. And it's a footnote on the nightly news. A footnote usually, but it gets on the nightly news. But every day, it's the crime and all of the other stuff that gets most of the attention. It's weird that we're we're numb to awfulness. But we aren't numb to goodness which I don't think we should ever be known to either. But it's just amazing how it has been transformed. And that's why when the media's focusing on all the disagreements between the people that are sitting there in the same row. Again, they're focusing on all of the awfulness. They're focusing on the fact that. How it is. Just it's politics are horrible. They've gotten worse. I think they've been made worse they've made encouraged people to be tribal Listrik. And as a result, you just see more and more nastiness, which is why it is awesome. That so many people came together under a common purpose. I don't care what someone thinks about George H W Bush. I've seen a lot of you know, like I said I had to actually take down comments. On my an on Instagram just from one thing. Because people would not just stop. And that goes for people on the right to I know everybody wants to come up and believe me everybody wants to get that revenge. Everyone wants to get their Lixin. Everyone wants to set it even they wanna they wanna make it even all of the wrongs that have been done to them by previous administrations all the time that they've been called racist and bigot simply because they disagreed on healthcare. All the times that they were told that they hated immigrants because they expected people to emigrate into the country legally. Oh, I get it. I get it. But..

"And some of the some of the eulogists, including his own son. Did that as well? So some of that came back, but it was kind of gentle humor, not not cutting humor, and sort of spoke to the way that he was a while accomplished and formidable in many ways was very approachable person. Jerry as many people reflect on the life and legacy of former president, George H W. Bush. Could you share some of your own reflections on how you think he'll be remembered? Well, as I said, I think he is steadily rising in the estimate of both average Americans in historians as time goes on, you know, he lost reelection in large part because voters decided that he hadn't sufficiently tended to the domestic economy. I mean, I he ran for reelection at a time when unemployment was seven percent and above for the entire year. He was running for reelection. And that's a pretty tough road to hoe. And he was blamed for that in retrospect, you know, the economy was rapidly improving. He had made a tough decision to raise taxes, which balance the budget which helped reassure the markets which in turn helped drive. What was what turned out to be both a period of reasonably good economic growth. Economists going at almost four percent when he lost the election. People just didn't feel it yet and a balanced budget. A few years later his record on national security issues is. Is really outstanding. And you know, he put up with both the crisis and TNN square in China, and the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and extraordinarily unsettled time in the Soviet Union, the Soviet bloc and all those things were handled from the American point of view, successfully. But I think the greatest achievement will entire over time be seen as overseeing the demise of the Soviet Union without a shot being fired. And that was not a foregone conclusion by any stretch of the imagination didn't have to turn out that way of could've been calamitous in. It was peaceful. And I think that's due in large part to George Hw Bush, Jerry as we look ahead and consider the current political climate any final thoughts. One of the interesting things hanging over the ceremony over the crowd. That was there was whether George H W Bush has to be seen as the last of his breed or whether the kind of governance that he tried to execute could be continued which. Just to say we live in a much rougher tougher. More abrasive time, politically, and he tried to stand at least for kind of more civil and unifying dialogue. There was plenty of debate. And you got criticized for saying some potentially divisive things, but by and large it was a more civil time. And he tried to be a more unifying leader who talked about a kinder and gentler country and the question that hung over at all is was he the last of that kind of leader. Or can we go back in that direction again? And who knows we may or may not be able to. But I think his passing at least put that question in the minds of a lot of people Wall Street Journal, executive Washington editor Jerry cyb joining us with his reflections on the life and legacy of the late.

Quarter century ago twenty more than a quarter century ago in yet you had representatives from all across the world and all across American life there, which I think spoke of the kind of place that he holes in the American memory now, he's he's appreciated more. Now, I think it's fair to say, then he was when he left office, and that's true around the world you had Brian Mulroney. The former prime minister of Canada was eulogised because they became great friends. You had the Prince Charles of the United Kingdom there. You had the king of Jordan. You had the current German prime minister, and you had a whole assemblage of Americans of of significance in substance over the last thirty or forty years all gathered there, so I guess the first thing that struck me was there's only one man who could have brought this crowd together. And that's probably George H W Bush. The second thing that struck me was, you know, George Bush forty first president came to the Oval Office with maybe the best resume anybody's every carried into the Oval Office. He was vice president he was head of the CIA. Use UN ambassador. He was on voided China. He was a member of congress. He had run the Republican party. He was a successful businessman, and he had by most accounts an extraordinarily successful presidency. Lease on the foreign policy front. He oversaw the end of the Cold War, the unification of Germany and a successful Persian Gulf war, yet almost all the conversation. And almost all the eulogizing was about the kind of guy. He was in this word that former President George W Bush used in the clip we heard at the outset here decency. You kept hearing it over and over again his decency at his civility. And I thought it was striking that at a time. When people think a lot of that has been lost in the political debate. That's the thing that people kept coming back to when talking about George H W Bush and for you having covered his presidency. Were there any other particular moments during the ceremonies that resonated with you? I think it was it was that that he was an easy person to cover. For in the sense that he was approachable and really was kind of an open book, which you saw is what you got. Also, what struck me was the loyalty of the people who worked for him. I mean, all kinds of people that I hadn't seen in years and years made it back for this occasion. Which says something about the the way they felt about him. You know, there were a lot of jokes about things we used to joke about because, you know, reporters who I was White House reporter that. And there are pretty cynical lot. Usually we talked a lot about how he wasn't exactly silver-tongued. He was not the world's greatest public speaker.

Does it take away from the fact that he flew fifty eight missions in World War Two. Does it take away from that? He was an honorable family man and a grandfather and a great grandfather. Does it diminish that in any way, the fact that I disagreed with him on that? Now. It doesn't. And that's what a lot of people in this country. Don't understand. Disagreements are only as big as you allow for them to be and when you start using a disagreement on policy or or a belief to diminish someone else's humanity. Will then you're the one that has the problem in the sole not the person with whom you disagree. You're the person who needs to inspect that black spot in their heart. Not the person with him. You disagree? And so people can bring it up over and over again, and I still disagree with him on it. That's not gonna change. I still maintain that. We're going to what Wayne LaPierre had said in how that went down that was horrible. How that went down with those with those individuals. It was horrible how Waco happened. It was horrible how Ruby Ridge happened? And yes, those are some pretty heavy handed that was some pretty heavy handed jackboot ary that took place. I don't disagree with that. But I also understand where Hw is coming from to. He's been on the other side of it. And he knows a lot of the people that serve in in in in government. And he knows a lot of the people that that serve as the FBI. And by and large most people are good decent people. It's sad that the actions of some. Completely overtaken somehow outweigh the underappreciated under reported mostly unnoticed actions of the guy. But see that's the problem going back to the way the that what we're seeing in the media. The good always goes toward. The good always goes unnoticed and a good always goes on appreciated and in those instances where something good does happen. And it and it pierces that bubble. Most in part to to Sharon on social media. He goes viral it explodes. That's why you see all of these stories of people helping people that are that get millions of views people talk about it. And it's a footnote on the nightly news. A footnote usually, but it gets on the nightly news. But every day, it's the crime and all of the other stuff that gets most of the attention. It's weird that we're we're numb to awfulness. But we aren't numb to goodness which I don't think we should ever be known to either. But it's just amazing how it has been transformed. And that's why when the media's focusing on all the disagreements between the people that are sitting there in the same row, again, they're focusing on all of the awfulness. They're focusing on the fact that. How it is. Just it's politics are horrible. They've gotten worse. I think they've been made worse they've made encouraged people to be try ballistic. And as a result, you see more and more nastiness, which is why it is awesome. That so many people came together under the common purpose. I don't care what someone thinks about George H W Bush. I've seen a lot of you know, like I said I had to actually take down comments. On my end on Instagram. Just from one thing. Because people would not just stop an EchoStar people on the right to I know everybody wants to come up and believe me everybody wants to get that revenge. Everyone wants to get their Lixin. Everyone wants to set it even they wanna they wanna make it even all of the wrongs that have been done to them by previous administrations all the time. They've been called racist and bigot simply because they disagreed on health care all the times that they were told that they hated immigrants because they expected people to emigrate into the country legally. Oh, I get it. I get it. But. Was due. You're gonna have also those people I think that are just going to be hard. No matter what you just ignore those people not everybody's like that though. So on one of those rare occasions when we're burying a president on one of those rare occasions when everybody's kind of coming together under a flag of decency, and they're calling a truce momentarily from exchanging awfulness in the headlines, I think it's good to acknowledge that. And I think it's good to analogy can still disagree with people. And also believe that there are still people. Grace is greater than keeping score way. Better. We have more to touch on as the services are still underway. And including a couple of factual corrections to some people who again are using that day to go off. And do that stuff. They are. Now, we're gonna get into all of that. And also coming up when we just look at the rundown here. See what we have we have. Well, we have very interesting remarks from former Senator Claire mccaskill, but in all of those she actually said something that was actually correct. I know I'm being honest. I'm being honest know, getting right with the lawyer here in two thousand eighteen so we have that we have a bunch of other stuff too, including some of the leg. Latest economic news and climate stuff and all that. Oh, and then a ranking of the safest and not safest cities. Yeah. Some of those may surprise you some of them may not we'll get into all of that.

"The way matters show. We at nine eastern on MSNBC. It has been a remarkable day of solemn pomp and circumstance in Washington. Dc today as former President George Hw Bush is celebrated and honored in the nation's capital. His body today was brought from a funeral home in Houston, Texas by motorcade to a Texas Air National Guard base. There was a solemn departure ceremony there before his casket was flown from Texas to joint base Andrews, which is just outside Washington DC. We just don't see spectacles like this in US politics, very often. Because there are not very many circumstances that are treated with this degree of ceremony in our culture. This degree of ceremony and civic reverence. Four past president today that included a full artillery salute as the former president's casket arrived at the US capitol. And now tonight he will lay in state under the rotunda of the US capital. Now, this will be overnight tonight and all through tomorrow and then overnight tomorrow night until Wednesday morning and on Wednesday morning. He will be brought from the rotunda to the National Cathedral. Whereupon? There will be a state funeral to honor him. So we will have more on some of those plans coming up later on tonight and over the course of this hour, but you should know that while we are on the air this evening and through the night tonight overnight and into tomorrow morning. There will be members of the public attending and paying their respects as his casket sits in the rotunda of the US capital again updates on that throughout this hour as we continue to watch that that solemn scene. Late on Friday night after we finished our show here. There was a midnight issue court filing from lawyers representing President Trump's former attorney and a longtime former Trump organization executive Michael Cohen. And you might have read press reports about this over the weekend or today. I will just tell you that of all the court filings. We have seen in all of the court cases associated with the Russia investigation and the special counsel's investigation. This filing from midnight on Friday night filed by Michael Cohen's lawyers arguing for lenience and his sentencing. This is like the best overlap. We have yet seen in a single document between the circle that's marked important stuff from the molar investigation and a nearby circle. Marked really weird stuff related to the molar investigation. This is the place where important and weird overlap. This is a really important, but really weird document all at the same time. What's strange about? It is the almost surreal effort. By Cohen's lawyers. To portray Cohen as a saint-like figure who has devoted himself humbly toward helping others in the less fortunate throughout his life. I mean, I know that defense lawyers are supposed to do that. But in this case, this is the guy who told that reporter from the Daily Beast what I'm going to do to you is going to be effing disgusting. Right. This is that same guy. But that is just some of the background music for this filing. Which does make it a little bit hard to take. That said there is a lot of really interesting, and I think important information in this document, the filing describes Michael Cohen as a more than willing cooperator with a great number of investigations that are potentially affecting this president and his administration, including some investigations. I'm not sure we knew existed before this filing in this sentencing memo that Cohen's lawyers have filed they spell out that he's had seven different interviews with prosecutors from Muller's office from the special counsel's office. He's had two separate interviews with investigators from the US attorney's office in the southern district of New York..

"Business. Peace and security freedom and the rule of law such is a world worthy of our struggle and worthy of our children's future. Former President George Hw Bush passed away Friday at the age of ninety four the forty first US president will lay in state of the US capitol until Wednesday. He was the last American president to serve in World War Two. And as president presided over a time of tumultuous economic and global events Wall Street Journal chief economics commentator, Greg hip joins us to discuss Bush's legacy. So Greg is President George Bush had some big shoes to fill following Ronald Reagan's two terms. He sure did. I mean, remember one of the things that need Reagan. So popular was Eddie precited over an epic business expansion that brought unemployment very low and was accompanied by fairly steady economic growth. So that would have been a difficult record to match for any president. But for Bush was made more difficult because. There were two aspects to the Reagan expansion which actually left difficult legacies for Bush to deal with was tax cuts which were enacted early nineteen eighty s which had a lot to do with the initial impetus out of the early nineteen eighties recession, but they left a very large structural deficit and Bush struggled with dealing with that desert for his entire term read my lips. And of course, it led to his breaking his famous, no new taxes pledge. So that was one aspect of the legacy of Reagan that Bush had to deal with the other which is less. Well, known is that there was also a lot of deregulation of the financial sector under all Reagan. And that basically produced the SNL crisis, and that was one of the reasons why the economic why the economy suffered so much in the early nineteen nineties when was so slow to recover dealing with the aftermath of the S and L crisis. And so I think that was another thing that's sort of like heard Bush's ability to deliver the strong economic report card that Reagan did, you know, also during Bush's term, you had the Persian Gulf war, but also the subsequent recession which many say cost him reelection in one thousand nine hundred to the Persian Gulf war was in some sense, the peak of Bush's popularity because of the war that was with limited aims with a coalition. It -ccomplish those aims, and and the United States got out of that war. Unfortunately, of course, the high the uncertainty, and I oil prices that accompanied the the war may have had something to do with the recession. At coincided of that period. That said there were other aspects going on in the global economy to one was of course, a follow the Berlin Wall, which all the Bush didn't 'cause it he certainly helped manage the American response to it in some sense Austen the end of the Cold War, and the other wasn't a go of the North American Free trade agreement now that agreement wasn't ratified until Clinton was President Bush, certainly ushered it in. And if you think of those two events, the negotiation of NAFTA, and the fall of the Berlin Wall as inaugurating that great period of globalization that we now look at as having run from roughly a quarter of a century from the early nineteen nineties, George H W Bush had a lot to do with Naga rating that period in Greg when you look at Bush, a politician he was Reagan's vice president in the eighties yet, the two of them were bitter rivals throughout much of the nineteen eighty presidential campaign. And I mean bidder not just politely disagreeing with each other. And there are lessons to be learned there about coming together despite differences, I think there are if you think in nineteen eighty of you know, Bush. Was from the establishment and discouragement Republican party cared. A lot about balanced budgets and Bush was horrified by Reagan's claim that you can cut taxes and balancing budget by doing that.

And so it was just a chromatic moment in my short then short life, and I'll never forget it claim fumes smoke, and it was terrifying. President George Hw Bush nearly twenty years ago describing the moments after his plane was hit during World War Two. He was the last veteran of that war to serve as president of the United States. Joining with me now is a army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson. He served as chief of staff to Colin Powell, thank you for being with us. There is relevance in a continuing time of war to president understanding service in the way that George H W Bush did, but but also to his very personal experience with it. Absolutely. There are no bone Spurs for H W Bush. No, I have other priorities is Dick Cheney said he went right in the delayed is university career as university education was one of the youngest have not the youngest pilots in the navy in World War Two, and he did it service in. I think service is the middle name of H W Bush wanna talk about the Gulf war, and and President Bush's reflections on this. He made these reflections in August of two thousand and four. Let's listen together. We defined the mission and the mission was not to kill Saddam Hussein. And certainly not keep by rug. The mission was to end the aggression, and we went to the United Nations we tried diplomacy and when all else failed we use force. We did what we said we do. But the resolutions call for the liberation of Kuwait came home fast forward that status quo didn't remain just as it was at the end of the war because you saw more massive build up Iraq. You saw time and time again violations of the no-fly zone and the president had to take action. So it's a different time. But I don't have any regrets about what we did. I'll tell you where I miscalculated I thought Saddam Hussein would fall of his own weight when the war ended, and I thought they'd throw him the hell outta there. And they did Cornel interesting. It's the opposite of mission creep he thought that the mission was done. And that it would it would finish himself. And he didn't want to keep American troops loss of American lives in that war was was particularly low. But in the end, it it it didn't go the way President Bush had thought it would go. No. And I admire the fact that he put the United Nations at its pinnacle. We actually did something that was right? We reversed aggression, and he exactly defined it as we fulfill the mandate, and then we left that's exactly what we should have done. Now, the fact that he is more or less intimated an excuse for his son and the second Iraq war, notwithstanding that was strategic era of the highest proportion, H W Bush had restored the balance of power in the Gulf between essentially, Iran and Iraq and left the region more or less stable what we did in two thousand and three much tomography and much to my sadness as we destroyed that balance. It's a power, and we are living with the results of that today. We'll probably live with it for another decade or two and the results are able President Bush was close to and valued. The advice of Colin Powell tell me a bit about that relationship. I think the proof of the pudding there if you will was when Powell was selected to be the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff over many other generals youngest in the history of the position first African American first non academy graduate, and that was all because H W Bush's Ronald Reagan's vice president had seen Powell operate as the deputy national security adviser to Frank Carlucci. And then in the last year of Reagan's second term as his national security adviser and knew what a great American Powell wise and wanted him to be as chairman and would brook..

President Obama praising president George H W Bush is impact on foreign policy Tuesday hours after meeting with him for what would be the last time this morning president. Bush's successors are remembering him and his years of public service. President and MRs Obama writing in part, quote, George H W Bush's life is a testament to the notion that public service is a noble joyous calling his son President, George W Bush said his father was quote, a man of the highest character and the best data son or daughter could ask for and president and secretary Clinton write in part, quote, he never stopped serving. I saw it up close working with him on soon. Nami relief in Asia and here at home after Hurricane Katrina, his remarkable leadership and great heart were always on full display. Joining us now Daily Beast columnist and MSNBC political analyst Jonathan alter from the Washington Post columnist Karen Tumelty and David Ignatius columnist and associate editor for the Washington Post. Thanks to all of you for being with us. Karen? Let's let's just talk about. What may have been George H W Bush's undoing in the end he got to serve one term and part of that was because toward the end of his term America was in recession. And there were lots of criticisms of him at the time that he was not able at he said so himself is not able to sort of connect with Americans over the kitchen table issues that they were struggling with at the time. Yeah, it's you know, as short footed as he was in foreign policy on the international stage at a very turbulent and very dangerous time he was not quite as certain of himself on domestic policy. And so he gets hit by two big problems. Ecconomic Lii one is the recession. The other is Americans growing concern about the enormous federal deficit, and he was he was not somebody who was able to inspire the kind of economic confidence that Bill Clinton could in that ninety two election with. His message. You know, it's the economy stupid and at the same time he was hit by a second candidate Ross Perot on the deficit, and that turned out to be his undoing. This is a president who just you know, year and a half before had had stratospheric approval rating ratings kind of limped into that election hampered by his inability to connect with people on domestic issues.
