"Will say when I saw Bill O Reilly interview, I guess it was President Obama back in the day? Yeah. What you had never seen Now they would never grant Fox news or somebody like Bill O Reilly at ever an interview with the Democratic candidate or democratic president, But, yeah, he Boy. He left it all out there. He didn't go easy on him and give him credit for doing so. I'm surprised he would hitch his wagon to to Mr Trump. Not not and not because Trump's bad guy or good guy. It's just Trump's almost irrelevant to a former president. Why hit your wagon to that? Because you don't even know if this guy is going to be running and if you're looking for position I think this is just a way to get back out there to be seen with a certain crowd. Do you think this is a Floyd Mayweather thing? I'm just gonna find anything. That's just money. We're just going to call it Floyd Mayweather after his recent statement. Yes, I think this is I think for Bill O Reilly. This is all about Getting back out there getting hits on his website on his podcast on his TV show online to sell more books. Absolutely. What? Regretting that fortune? Yeah. What a great way to to bring in some cash. Indirectly, and I think you're spot on. Let's say he wants to get back on some type of network. Yeah. If you're going to be on a conservative network, then you're going to get back on and get people's eyes looking at you again. This is the guy you do want to hitch your wagon to Fox, though it's not gonna hire whether they're not. I don't know who else it would be. What's he going to go on? The one America News Network is gonna matter. Who's Max Max? I'm actually surprised. Newsmax hasn't offered him the whole shebang. Anyway. I think he's not hardcore enough for them. Maybe that's what it is. How weird is that? Not hardcore now? Yeah, interesting. Now. He also promises a quote never before heard inside view of his administration. What it is, that's a great T. I'm sure I'm sure there's going to be some interesting stories, but I don't think a lot of light is going to be shed. Now. This is interesting. Who is the best life speaker you've ever seen? That's the question. Uh, I I don't know. See, I don't know that either. I I, You know, everybody just I went to. I went to the last event. I think at Reunion Arena before they tore it down. Maybe they tore it down because of this event, but it was an Obama campaign rally. And people were weeping, and I'm just listening to this guy thinking Well, that's wrong. Well, that's stupid. I didn't even think it was that good of a speaker and he's well. He's a good speaker. I don't agree with him, but he's good to me. I didn't think he was that good speaker. I thought he was very Rehearsed. Very I just It didn't strike me as something from the heart. And maybe that's what it is on a campaign. You know, you just get tired of saying the same stuff over and over and over again. Trump is probably I haven't seen a lot of speeches or, you know, besides graduation and stuff, That's not a thing, but I would say When it comes to entertainment factor for her speech is there's no question Trump was the most entertaining speaker I had ever heard by a million miles for us speeches. I'm not talking stand up comedy or anything like that. So I'm just Yeah, I'm speaking in political terms. Reagan I saw Reagan at a rally before he was president. When he was running and in Houston, and and he was very effective. Very good. Speaking knew how to do it because he'd been he'd done television for years. Such an advantage. Yeah, it really is. I really would if I if I was serious about taking my Politics to the next level, and I know they probably have some coaching, but I'm getting an acting coach. We're like gonna do it. I think it's so. For those guys. Yes. I mean, that's why they excelled in their other careers because they they were strong in that I would argue Ted Cruz, great debater. I've often I've said he's a bad politician. I mean, the way he plays chess. Yeah, I don't think he's very good at that. Yeah, I don't either. I think I like Ted Cruz. I don't am sure he's a fine debater. I I don't think he's a very good speaker are inspiring speaker Iraq. I think he comes up with points. And he stays with them. And he's not recognizing that it's not resonating with me. And he's like your nerd friend trying to be cool. Yeah, yeah, just accepted being the nerd. He'd be a lot cooler. Yeah. Reagan was probably the best speaker. I saw it. I saw I saw I've seen Carter George W. George Sr Dan Quayle. How is Dan? Uh, Dan looked like a sheep in headlights. I really did. I felt really bad for my shot at the day. Misspell potato. No, no, no. This is running for reelection in 92. He's at this is at Texas A and M. And there is a rally there and I went up to see and he came walking in the crowd in this German It was clear it was a deer in headlights Look on his face. He was very uncomfortable. It's not natural. This is the thing. A lot of a lot of people don't realize this with politicians. It's not a natural state for them to speak to a crowd. It's just not what they do. They're not used to it like George W. Bush, great example of this one on one every single. Yeah, everybody says the guy's amazing. He's great. You love him in a speech. He's just awkward and uncomfortable. Different skill set. Yeah, yeah, Bill Clinton. I have never met the man in person. I've talked to him on the phone four or five times over the years. And a I can hear. He's a smart guy. I and everybody tells me who meets him that he just makes you feel like you're the only person in the room. Yes, yes, and as a speaker, he was fairly effective. But I thought, you know, everybody said that Trump's this great speaker and he's entertaining. I never got that. I just kind of I and it's probably because I'm more of a get to the point type of thing. Yeah, I don't like getting off track. Just get to the point. Let's move on to the next thing. So I don't know who the most effective I guess Reagan would probably qualify. Is that right? I like it. That's training topics coming up here in just a moment. I'm glad somebody else has said this of all people, Bill Maher. Verifying and validating. What I've been saying about college and universities for years coming up. Wait till you hear this. You're going to love it. Let's check in with Bill Jackson. He's looking at traffic.

Then it's the Bucks pregame followed by Bucks versus the Utah Jazz should be a good game tonight. Right here on Wtmj, so stay tuned. Right here on 6:20 A.m.. And for the For the first hour, we had been talking about former South Carolina governor and former U S. Ambassador United Nations Nikki Haley, who had done a Interview with political And she talked about The fact that former President Trump she felt that he had no future in politics that he had no future in the GOP. And so we spent the first hour talking about that, and I'm gonna move on to the next story. But I am going to read a text that said, we were talking about a the viability of a and the possibility of a third party. And it's extra, said Ross Perot took enough from George Sr to swing the election. That's very true. And it was probably because of Ross Perot. Well, a big reason. Uh, No as to why what Bill Clinton ended up winning and 1992. So very good point. He did. But It wasn't sustainable in terms of a third party, and I can't remember the name Of his party. I can't remember it for the life of me by certainly remember the time and there was a lot of talk about the viability and The possibility of a of a third party and it just it just hasn't materialized. I'm not saying it could never happen. I'm just saying that it is very, very difficult. Especially now. In this particular climate, though I could see something like that happening because I think people are really, really getting tired of Partisan nature of politics today, so I could see it more likely happening now than I could 15 20 years ago. I just think we're still quite a ways off from that happening. So let me let me see if I can break down this story as as best as possible. It xylitol long, So I'm going to give you the cliff notes abbreviated version of it. But this is the story of a doctor by the name of Hassan. Go call. He was a doctor in Houston, and he had worked for To hospitals. And he was recruited by the Harris County. This is this is this is a Houston Harris County Public Health Department. To help them with the covert 19 vaccine. So s so he did that because, um, you know, during the pandemic You know, he Woz, you know, kind of floating between hospitals. He wasn't living at home because his wife has a health condition. Um, story, um Pulmonary. Um, sarcoidosis is forgive me for my pronunciations. Um, that is the nature of her condition and makes it makes it very hard for her to breathe, even when she does a minimal, uh, types of whether it's light exercise. Whatever the case may be S so to keep from Potentially spreading the virus to her because he works in hospital. He was staying in a standing motel. For for for several months, and then he got this opportunity. With the Harris County Public Department become their medical director for the covert response team. Now it paid less. Um, then his his previous job, but You know, he he was he wanted to protect his wife by limiting his exposure to the coronavirus because before he was working and an emergency rooms And so this was back in December, and he had he was in a conference call, and we're state health officials explaining the protocols for administering the recently approved mint during a vaccine. So There are 11 doses in a vial and they're viable for six hours after the seal was punctured. So on December 29th Doctor. Go call We arrived in a park. They were having this, um this station in a park in the Houston suburb. They think the name of town is humble. Two. Supervisor backs vaccination event. It was intended mostly for emergency workers. So because it wasn't really highly publicized. There was no more than 250 doses administered, but it was the first public event so they knew would be hiccups. So to make a long story short around 6 45 that night as the event was winding down and Elgin part multiple person arrived for a shot. So a nurse Had to puncture a new vial to administer the vaccine, which activated 26 hour time limit for the 10 remaining doses. And so by that time, the chances of getting 10 eligible people showing up was slim. It was getting dark and they were. They were pretty much done at the site, but Doctor said I could. Google said he was determined he wasn't gonna waste a single dose, so he had a few hours to do it. So he asked the events 20 years of workers they refuse. Either they refuse, or they were, they were already been vaccinated. The paramedics had left two police officers, one of them vaccinated. The other decline the offer so basically what this guy did. Was. He started calling his call his family and friends to see if there were folks who were eligible, You know, elderly, those health conditions. To get a vaccine. So what he did was he He recruited some folks and he passed out the vaccine to them, and he had one left. It was only minutes to spare, and he gave it to his wife. And so he filed a report and he submitted it, and a few days later he was fired. They asked him about it. About what he did, he told them. They fired him, and they charged him. With stealing vaccines. Now. Luckily, the judge threw it out. But now he's without a job. His name has been drug through the mud. So the question is, what should he do? So this doctor get his job back. Should he follow lawsuit? What's his recourse? What should he do here? If you were him, What would you do? 85561616 20 on the accident Workers talking text line will continue to unpack this next. You're listening to W tmj night rolls off.

"The program. All right. You want to know who's on the house? Education and Labor Committee. From the state of Wisconsin. How about that? We have Congressman Glenn Grossman on the House education education. First word. In the name of the committee and Labor Committee. He's on the phone with me right now, before we get to impeachment, Glenn Grossman, I do want to ask you a question. Democrats control the committees in the house. But House Education and Labor Committee. Has anybody brought up the failure? Of Americans, schools, students. Since the covert lockdowns in virtual education became the norm is anyone brought up the fact that at least you know it is it is nationwide that there is substantial failure. But in Wisconsin At least two school district District have a third of students flunking out anybody bring that up in the house. No, Except for that we always use more money, but otherwise no So there's nothing about education that's being talked about in the education and labor Committee. Let me guess lots of stuff about the pro act or a $15 an hour minimum wage. Um, yes, And it's a matter of fact, we talk about the $15 minimum wage. We, of course, talking about racism. Everything today by the way in Washington is an excuse to talk about racism in the least racist country never existed, but Okay, So so $15 an hour minimum wage is about racism. So how is it about racism? Because if you actually do Jack the base wage to $15 an hour, you're going to eliminate a whole bunch of stepping stone jobs, And maybe that will affect disproportionately poor black. Teenagers in America or something. Is that how it's about racism? Well, always something is more black people or more women or whatever. Whatever. So it is the new administration in the new administration. Every topic Is an excuse to talk about the overriding thing in America, which is that we're horrible country because we're so raised and for whatever miraculous reason we disguise it so much. People from all around the world except for Europe are training it in here. But despite that fact, um it's all racism all the time in Washington today. So is here. You're just an idea. I'm just gonna throw this out there. Next time you have a committee hearing in the educational, welfare, or rather education and labor Committee bring up failing kids all over America bring up the disproportionate impact of virtual school on black students in Milwaukee or Madison. Who are actually seeing their appalling numbers that they're appalling proficiency numbers at 9% in math and English dropping precipitously lower The 9% proficiency and and then let's see if anybody on that committee cares to address the racism off the lockdowns, or perhaps also mention that the $15 hour minimum wage will cut the legs off. The first couple of runs of the labor ladder, making it much more difficult for someone who does not get a good education to enter the workforce and make anything of themselves which will disproportionately affect black. Black teenagers, Young blacks in America. Um it's a good thing to bring up. Usually, What is brought up is the underfunding off schools in which a lot of black kids live. Just so your listeners know because a surprising number of people don't Milwaukee was one of the highest spending school districts in the state per capita can. I'm sure Madison is well above average is well, the block is one of the highest s so if you ever hear anybody say What are our number? One problem here is that the Marquis public schools were underfunded. Know they spend a lot more money per kid in Milwaukee than like, Find a lacquer. Sheboygan rash. Gosh, yeah, it's somewhere around 16 or $17,000 for student. It's it's well above. Quality private school tuition payment so that you can get 9% of kids proficient at math or English, Right? Let's talk about impeachment here. I just wanted to bring it up cause you're on the education committee. And I thought, Are they even talking about education? The answer, of course, is no. Um Yeah, I'm looking at every single television station Glenn. It's all about impeachment. That's all we're paying attention to is Impeachment II mean people are actually not paying attention to it? No doubt people are turning off their televisions or they're turning on something else. But all the major networks cable and and television networks are wall to wall on impeachment. And they were wall to wall on impeachment yesterday. And this is all to impeach a guy who can't actually be impeached because he's out of office. Um, I mean, how does this not? How does this not occur to some of your problematic members in the house? That this is actually about trying to talks. If I The the populism that Donald Trump that Donald Trump lead to some pretty spectacular results in America for the last four years, which, of course, also means that they're trying to talk to my Republican voters. Well, they're probably two mortars, Askew said. I think one of the motives is because Donald Trump is still the most well known Republican in the country. They feel it by tearing down Donald Trump they tear on the Republican Party. And secondly, by talking about Donald Trump. They take the presses, I off where it ought to be, and that is the mess that we have at the southern border. What is wrong with the headlines today are on impeachment. We're not talking about the increase of people crossing the border. We're not talking about sanctuary cities. We're not talking about orders not to deport people, which is the things we should be talking about. Instead, they can focus on impeachment well. Joe Biden is calling, causing all sorts of problems with his executive order. Explain to me then people like Liz Cheney and people like Adam Kinzinger and folks who seemed to be joining in with the left trying to keep The entire conversation about what an awful rotten person Donald Trump is for telling people to peacefully walked on Pennsylvania Avenue. Well, uh, Was Cheney Azzawi talk about her? She's what we call a Bush Republican and I boarded for for Bush. I voted for Bush senior, but we know going the last election. That I believe George Sr. I believe implied that he was voting for Hillary Clinton. And Bush Jr implied he was not going for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, which shows they're kind of a different sort of Republican that I think people thought they were at the time they voted for. And I think that is why lose. Cheney is out of that that strain of Republican and you know they, George Bush never really expressed a concern about all the manufacturing jobs going abroad. Hot, never really expressed. Exceptional. Monica concerned about all the, uh, National Guard troops who were shipped abroad. Um, always Donald Trump would express my concern about this. But George Bush was never big on worrying about excessive government spending, and, um As the results. There is kind of a difference between the Bush Republican and I'll call him the Trump slash Reagan Republican and we know that Donald Trump sometimes says things that are in temperate. We sure wish you didn't see him. But there are 22 parts of the Republican Party. And I think more of George Bush wing of the Republican Party is trying to use this is an excuse to kick The type of people who were draw who are drawn to Donald Trump aside. So who's who has the greater base of power? Is that the Bush Republican or to the Trump Republican, the Reagan Republican who is the greater base of power with this this in you know the center party war. Well. I'm afraid they're both gonna lose, but, uh Donald Trump right now is much more popular than George Bush's. He's brought more people into the party. And, obviously, sometimes you know you just Twitter a little bit too much, so there's a lot too much He got kicked off, so that's not a problem, right? Right, right. Right. But, um He, uh He's got a much much bigger base right now. But their phone where is gonna look out? You can't listen to push people either. You gotta remember these are all very close elections and if the Republican Party divides Some of your faces. Stay home. We lose. So somehow we got to kind of pull it together here for the governor's race in the Senate race in the presidential race in four years, But right now, I think many mean there's much much more enthusiasm and many, many, many more people who kind of like the populist Donald Trump message..

With fears growing about extremist groups targeting the capital again, the president is trying to lower the temperature supporter of mine could ever threaten or harass their fellow Americans. If you do any of these things, you are not supporting our movement. You're attacking it and you are attacking our country. That's wow. Very well. That's that's real stuff. Real presidential. The president condemned the attack last week of the capital and said the violence must stop that came right after he was impeached by the House for the second time. The first president ever to be impeached twice 10 Republicans breaking ranks and joining the Democrats in voting in favor of this, but unlikely that this thing is going to go any farther than the first one. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell says the trial won't take place until after the president leaves office. Big question then is Can you even do it? Made of glass. You says the city needs more doses of Corona virus vaccine, he says. Right now they're on pace to run out. The middle of next week. What we need we need the federal government, the state government and the manufacturers to step up and get us more supply immediately. All right. The mayor says Vaccine appointments are already booked through next week, and he's asking people to be patient. Well, pretty soon, we may say Mayor Yang. How about that? Andrew Yang wants to be mayor of New York City. This follows his failed presidential campaign, where he guaranteed income. Seo Every American and he's going to do the same. Yeah, for New York is his plan is $5000 a year to about a half A million New Yorkers. I'm sure your women that half million if I'm there, I'm an angry young man all the way. Let's go. You can go on. I understand that. Okay? Okay back to back to the impeachment. This had to be intentional. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was dressed exactly the same way yesterday. She was doing. President Trump's first impeachment she was in a knee high length black sheath dress is gonna look like a smoke three quarter length sleeves. And she also had a gold beaded necklace again. The only difference her mask That's right, huh? Stop, you know she has labels in their closet. She has inauguration outfits State of the Union and impeachment. So I just went to the impeachment. The icon. The funny thing with her is she's has that weird speech impediment anyway. But when you put the mascot that makes it worse again. Oh, let's make fun stuff. You like making fun of somebody who has a speech, but I bet there's some solid humor E. But here's for her the first time the outfit Exactly. I mean, if I for example, when I was coaching soccer if my team lost, I wouldn't wear the same hat again. I changed my house. I'm not gonna wear that hat next game. But if they want to keep wearing it, so it didn't work out with her first dress, and it's not gonna work out with this one. So anyway. Well, wait a second. He got impeached Both times, so worked out twice..

About what they should be doing right now, when stock markets are all time highs, and there's a lot of Misinformation out there. There's a lot of it say things happening in the municipal bond market that you need to be paying attention to. Because things are different right now. Things are changing their changing quickly.

You may remember that because of the coming of the great Depression. You may You may know this with recessions or depressions, usually 2 to 3 years for things to get back to normal. And right now we just had a recession. As you know, it's pretty pretty quick, pretty fast, but it is a recession. And so this recovery is it? Is it going to last the big question? Well, 1932 down 8.2% 1940 was the next 1 may remember that right before World War two. Down 9.8%. He had the Nazis going through. Ah, Paris. Member that those pictures of them stormtrooper and down the shops, Allie say. Right from the Ark to triumph. I mean photo right for that was ah, someone looking at photo opportunities in the past. I think about that. That's just crazy. I mean, can you imagine that? Market Street in San Francisco. You ever watch that show on Amazon Prime? Where? Ah, I don't want going to the Germans and Jap Japanese beat us in World War two, and then they take over the United States kind of interesting show. But could you I mean you could they show it. Did you see these people walking down Market street Aiming is America. Excuse me. All right. 4000 was a negative year down 9.1%. And then 2008 will never forget that 2008 market the SNP was down 37%. As Lehman Brothers declared, We're done. We're out of here. Remember those guys walking out with their their boxes? I do anyway, so that those air only four times, but the averages 11.3 not consider this Friday. If you look at the S and P for the year rap a little over 4%. So could we go another 7% up? I mean anything's possible. But will it be a negative year? That's a great question. The election will be behind us, and we'll see what happens. It's Ah, It's fascinating, isn't it? Sorry. I just get excited about this stuff. I know. All right. So how about this? This is a good one, is a Republican, or is a Democrat. Better for your stock market portfolio. This is fascinating. What do you think? The natural tendency, people sales Republicans or better, of course. I don't know. I mean, look at this. When Jimmy Carter remember Jimmy Carter I mean, we had the highest inflation we've ever had. And, you know, I mean, I remember that you could get a CD and you get like 17% return on your CDs and your municipal bonds. Those were paying like 12%. Remember that wise When I started the business in the early nineties? I remember I have these clients who had these Munich bonds and they said, like 12% interest or 8% interest, and these were tax free. I thought, Wow, that looks pretty good. But remember stocks and nineties were Running the 20%, too. So it was, well, what's better stocks or bonds? Anyway by Di Aggress. But when AH Jimmy Carter was president Of the United States. The average return For him in his period of time. As you may remember, was ahh 77 through 81 Get this 11.7%. You may say, Well, that's cause inflation was so high. And, of course, the returns. We're going to be okay. I mean, whatever you want to say, I'm just look Democrat 11.7%. How about Richard Nixon? He was a Republican, right? Hey, was an office from 69 through 74? Because, remember the last second term didn't go so well anyway. What was his average return? He's Republican. Must be great, right? Wrong down 2.9%. Up. Not great. Okay, let me let me pick a good one. George Bush, right? George Bush should be great. After all, he was there from 2001 through 2009. I mean, one bad year there right now. Remember many bad years? Gulf War Remember 2008 crisis? Wow. What do you think down 4.4%? Not looking so good. Right? And I know immediately go to Ronald Reagan, Of course, because you have to. And that was their Cem Cem. Good times for the market overall, 1981 through 1989. You'd be right. The average annual return was 15.9%. And for George Sr. The average was 13.9 positive. Positive. Positive. Okay, good.

It doesn't really matter because when you take it all together and you annual ISAT The average return for presidential terms is positive. 10.3% again. I'm just talking about the S and P 500. Index, which, as we've been talking about a lot right now is consisting of really four big stocks. I mean, go look at it. You can. You can pull it up and see the top four stocks and what percentage they make up of the SNP. It's kind of frightening. I mean, all those 500 companies and four of them make up a lot of that index right now, so this is again kind of an anomaly that's happening. But what's fascinating is if you chart all this, Alex, I love looking at it. Yeah, I know. I'm kind of getting that way. If you love looking at charts, which I do. I like looking at things that go up. January. 1926 if you had a dollar You had $1 in 1926. And you put it in the S and P 500. You left it through December of last year, 2019. You would have an incredible return. Your $1 would be. Ah. Almost $8000. Can you believe that? It's incredible. And that's and again we have a charger that shows every single President Coolidge, Hoover, Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Ford Carter, all the ones I mentioned, and you could just see what happens. Over their terms. With with your investment. So when people start to tell you should you be getting out of your stocks right now? Oh, cell. I mean, this this past week, we had several calls where people were just calling in and saying I heard I should sell things right now I'm really thinking of throwing it all into a fixed indexed annuity. There's no fees and those things that's not true. You know, there's I just love having these conversations of people because they don't get all the facts. They make these decisions which are just way out there. And I'm happy to let you know what to ask these people as they talk to you. Like how much commissioner getting paid. It's a great question when you asked that one. Not really. This one fellow this week came back to me with Oh, it's being paid for out of a marketing budget in this and not the other thing I said, Did they tell you what the percentage of the commission was? No. Why not? What are they afraid of? To say it 6%, but whatever it is, just say it. Who cares? Tell him tell him I mean, come on, coming up next. It's time for our popular, they say segment. Where there say they say right now you should be buying municipal bonds. Is that true? How is covert affected revenue? We're going to get into that. It's all coming up next.

"And the wild. This is the Tom Hartman program. Look today. In the time Harbin Book Club is Fred Kaplan's new book, the Bomb Presidents, Generals and the Secret History of Nuclear War. This is from the introduction for 30 years after the Cold War ended, almost no one thought much less worried about nuclear war. Now almost everyone is fearful. But the fear takes the form of a vaguely paralyzed anxiety is a long reprieve from the bombs shadow. Few people know how to grasp its dimensions. They forgot if they ever knew. A holiday from history began on August 8th 2017 when President Donald Trump barely six months in office, told reporters that his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, that if the North Koreans kept threatening the United States with harsh rhetoric and missile tests, quote They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen end quote. Even those who didn't remember President Harry Truman's similar description. 72 years earlier of the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima chairman said, a rain of ruin from the air the like of which has never been seen on this earth. It was clear that in language more bellicose than any president since the end of World War two, Trump was talking about launching nuclear weapons of North Korea. Not if it's leader, King John on first attack the United States but merely if he developed the ability to do so. Then six months later trumps science and released his administration's nuclear Posture Review a 74 page document that called for building new types of nuclear weapons and integrating them with the military's conventional war plans. In short, For treating nuclear weapons as normal. The red lights flashed the alarm bells rang furiously. Get here is what few recognized. None of these notions were new. President himself seemed to departure from the norm. His character, erratic, eruptive, thin skinned, willfully uninformed combusted mix for a world leader with his finger on the button. The button and everything around it or the same. In those decades when most of us chose to forget the bomb as global tensions calmed and fallout shelters crumbled and we turn our gaze to other problems and pleasures. A nuclear war machine continued to rumble fourth in the beyond Top secret chambers of the Pentagon, the Strategic command headquarters in Omaha, the weapons labs in various parts of the country. And the think tanks whose Dan Denizens never stopped thinking about the unthinkable. They all kept at their singular task wrestling with the dilemmas posed by the bombs existence. How did he turn nuclear war? Out of fight a nuclear war if it cannot be deterred. Gotta win it if such a thing is even possible. This is the nature of the nuclear era, and the arrow never never drifted into suspension, even if our attention did Trump snapped us out of our slumber reminded those of us who are old enough to know and inform those who weren't The bomb is still here in public. Over the years, officers and officials have described America's nuclear policy as a second strike deterrence. Given enemy strikes us with nuclear weapons, We will retaliate in kind. Is retaliatory power is what deters the enemy from a tackiness. In reality, though American policy has always been to strike first preemptively or in response to a conventional invasion of allied territory or to a biological or a large scale cyber attack. In any case, not just as an act answer to nuclear attack. All of these options and visiting envision firing nuclear weapons at military targets for military ends. They envision the bomb is a weapon of war writ large. This vision has been enshrined in the American military's doctrines, drills and exercises from the onset of the nuclear era, all through all its phases. Most presidents have been skeptical of this vision. Morally strategically, practically None of them have rejected it. Some of threatening to launch nuclear weapons first is a way of settling a crisis. A few who considered adopting a no first use policy. In the end, I decided against it. There are rationales for these doctrines, drills and exercises and for the retention of the first used option. They're driven by policies, personalities and bureaucratic rivalries, but also by a logic, which once its premises air accepted. Girls. It's adherents and the rest of us. Into a rabbit hole of increasingly bizarre scenarios that seem increasingly of strangely rational, the deeper there probed. Understanding the nuclear era the era of our lifetime.

Never fully told How did we get to the second coming of nuclear panic? How did we wind up with thousands of nuclear weapons far more than any war aims could justify What propelled the nuclear arms race during the decades long Cold War. And what happened to the weapons and their guardians after the Cold War ended. And how and why did any of this persist? Chapter one, killing a nation book. Fred Kaplan's The Bomb.

Jacob Saber off of NBC is going to drop by. We've got some follow up on a private security company that's detaining migrant Children in hotels. The torture of Children continues. And they think that the you know the whole Q and conspiracy thing is is like the Democrats are satanic pedophile, blood drinking Satan worshippers.

And in our third hour, Greg Palace is going to be by Steve Bannon, Kris Kobach and the whole build the wall scandal. Gets a little larger. It's very, very interesting, but you know, to start out And my question to you essentially is you know what they're going to take their wake up or defeat the members of the Trump Death cult? I mean, even the professional war criminals, George W. Bush, who told his biographer back in 1999, Mickey Herskowitz, before he was even officially running for president. Said. If I ever get to become president, I'm gonna have a war. I'm not gonna have a short war. My daddy's worldly lasted three days in Iraq. I'm gonna have a real war and get myself reelected so I can then privatize Social Security. I mean the's No way I played the tape a million times for you of You know him, saying that er or of city she had quoting Mickey Herskowitz is but his biographer, the guy that his his parents, George Sr and Barbara hired To ghost write a charge to keep, which was George W. Bush is so called autobiography that came out in 2000. You know, Anne and George just told that I'm gonna have a war. That's that's how you get reelected. Ronnie Reagan showed us how to do that with Grenada. My daddy did that with Iraq. He didn't get reelected, though, because his war only lasted three days. I'm gonna have myself or even that guy George W. Bush is not willing to be on the same platform with Donald Trump. And then you got Dick Cheney the guy who illegally you know, he and Jon you and Jay Bybee. You know, got together along with few other cretins and and said, Hey, let's uh let's let's figure out a way to torture people. Let's let's violate the U. N convention on torture. Let's Let's do stuff that we could be charged. You know, under the number tribunals with we'll get away with it. Don't worry. We've got some good Republican judges. Let's start a private prison down early, a illegal prison. In a third country so that it won't be subject to the rule of law in the United States will call a Guantanamo or get Mo.

I want to be very clear. What we're seeing today is different for March and April. It is extraordinarily rides spread its into the rural as equal urban areas. The president tweeted afterward. Quote. Pathetic. Okay, so that's how he feels. How do Americans broadly feel about our response to the pandemic? NPR's Brian Man has the findings of a new NPR and Ipsos polling, Brian. Hey, Good morning. So I mean, the storyline here has been. There is so much division in Washington over this pandemic, But the poll found a lot of common ground among Americans. What are we saying? Well, really across the political spectrum. People are saying things were bad. I mean more than 155,000 Americans dead so far. And people think it's time to set the political feuding aside and go big. On a national response. Mallory knew Eliza, pollster with Ipsos. This's the firm that worked with NPR on this We've come to a pretty dire place when it comes to both the death toll and the spread of Corona virus across the country and Americans as they grapple with thee. Reality and just how grave the situation is. I think they're looking for sweeping, really broad, powerful action here. And of course, this has political ramifications when we asked about November's presidential election Upwards of 80% of Americans say they'll support the candidate with the National Corona virus plan a strategy for rebuilding the economy. And, interestingly, 81% of people say they want someone who can unify the country. OK, so that's what Americans are looking forward to in November in the lead up to that what people think the government can do now? That might help Americans across the political spectrum. Now support measures like mask mandates Public health rules requiring face coverings in public. They want the federal government to finally improve Corona virus testing. One of the people we surveyed is Sophie McClelland. She's a Democrat who lives near Jacksonville, Florida. I don't think that we have adequate testing because it can take up to two weeks to get results. And also, I think enough people are not following physician recommendations in terms of social distancing and wearing masks. And really, we found overwhelming majority of Americans now support mask wearing its just not controversial anymore. 75% say they will back The state mandates. And yet President Trump has made really clear that he doesn't support mass requirements at all. He tweeted yesterday that the U. S has done much better than most other countries dealing with covert 19 do Americans agree with him? In a word. No. 2/3 of people we surveyed say America is doing worse than other countries, 41% said We're doing much worse. I put this question to Laura Brad's low. She's a Republican who lives in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. Absolutely work. We have AH, leader and I use the term loosely in quotes. Who is not providing leadership of this country at all. I mean, if I have to second, the Warman, he should be sucking enough wearing a mask now. Laura says she didn't vote for Trump in 2016 won't vote for him in November. But what's interesting is even Republicans We surveyed who do back President Trump want him to do a lot more to fight Covad, 19. Here's Kevin Reno, who lives in Irving, Texas. I think a national approach would be better. I think he would be effective and it may be at the point here before too long that we have to do that again. So far, the president has resisted this idea of a kind of national response. But we found 2/3 of Americans want a single countrywide strategy for Corona virus testing for deciding when businesses and schools should reopen. Let me ask you what you found on schools because that is one of the biggest questions going right now. President Trump says he wants kids back in classrooms in the fall. Do the people you surveyed think that that is going to happen or that that can happen safely? People are really nervous about this. Overall, 66% of Americans say they favor distance learning in the fall, keeping their kids home. Democrats overwhelmingly favor that Republicans more mixed. 60% agree with Trump and think kids should go back to classrooms and just real quick. The economy. What are we saying? Yeah, People say they want Washington to get off the fence. They want him to spend big to help the economy and help people who are struggling. Even if that means taking on Mohr national debt. NPR's Brian Man, Brian, Thanks so much. Thank you. Okay. I'm gonna admit something here.

And yet President Trump has made really clear that he doesn't support mask requirements at all. He tweeted yesterday that the U. S has done much better than most other countries dealing with covert 19 Do Americans agree with him? In a word. No. 2/3 of people we surveyed say America is doing worse than other countries, 41% said we're doing much worse. Put this question to Laura Brad's low She's a Republican who lives in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. Absolutely. We have AH, leader and I use the term loosely in quotes. Who is not providing leadership of this country at all. I mean, if I have consecutive Warman, he should be sucking enough wearing a mask now. Laura says she didn't vote for Trump in 2016 won't vote for him in November. What's interesting is even Republicans We surveyed who do back President Trump want him to do a lot more to fight Covad, 19. Here's Kevin Reno, who lives in Irving, Texas. I think a national approach would be better. I think he would be effective and it may be a two point here before too long that we have to do that and again. So far, the president has resisted this idea of a kind of national response. But we found 2/3 of Americans want a single countrywide strategy for Corona virus testing. For deciding when businesses and schools should reopen. Let me ask you what you found on schools because that is one of the biggest questions going right now. President Trump says he wants kids back in classrooms in the fall. Do the people you surveyed think that that is going to happen or that that can happen safely? People are really nervous about this. Overall, 66% of Americans say they favor distance learning in the fall, keeping their kids home. Democrats overwhelmingly favor that Republicans more mixed. 60% agree with Trump and think kids should go back to classrooms. And just real quick, the economy. What are we saying? Yeah, People say they want Washington to get off the fence. They want them to spend big to help the economy and help people who are struggling, even if that means taking on more national debt. NPR's Brian Man, Brian, Thanks so much. Thank you. Okay. I'm gonna admit something here. No. Well, my kids wanna puppy to keep them company during the pandemic so far, though, we have held off But you my friend have heeded the call. I did. I got a puppy on Sunday. He is amazing. I named him go, Liam. Oh, no, that's a whole other conversation. Okay. Anyway, there's a 14 year old animal lover in San Jose Rachel, who says people should consider adopting older dogs, not just puppies. Our people to understand that, like older dogs like patient adult, more senior dogs, I guarantee you that they will give you the same love and unconditional affection as any other dog. I believe that that's Mina Kumar. She was adopted in India and brought to the U. S. By her parents, Meena is focused on the idea of a forever home. I just feel like many senior dogs do struggle to find a forever home because of their medical conditions. I really hope that one every one of them gets him forever home just like I did. Her mom J. Aya says It was clear early on that her daughter loved animals a dark and laid a litter of puppies. You know, in the apartment complex animal by and so we would spend hours just taking her there. She loved to the puppies. But older pets really have a place in her heart like this one, much by the name of George Sr dogs, Eircom. They remind him a grandfather who is also old, and I loved George because he was so calm and he was just a very loving and he was such a great cuddler. So Meena heard about Mudville, which is a cage free dog Rescue program for older pets. Stop it. Sherry Frankel is the founder. I started my bill about 13 years ago when there was no such thing as a senior dog rescue. Excuse me. I'm gonna have to grab this one little dog coming in, Remember? Ah, you want me to start over? Meena would drop into my build a visit the senior dogs, But there was a problem. Here's mom actually immediately. She wanted to go volunteer at much well, but she was too young. Because you're only nine. She was only nine. You have to be 17 years old to volunteer there. But Meena would not be dissuaded. She came up with a plan. A great idea popped up in my head and that was to take care of dogs around my neighborhood and donate all the money. I earn too much, though she raised $14,000. My goal is to contribute 25,000 too much, though. Frankel says Meena has become something of a viper at the rescue centre. Martha was honored to have her as a friend of my fill and also I am so happy to know her and know that there are used out there that have compassion like she does..

"89717243 Larry elder relief factor dot com Studio. I mentioned yesterday. I think it was a Jack Kennedy John Kennedy for President Kennedy. In a book called Dark Side of Camelot, written by a former Your Times writer named Seymour Hersh, an investigative reporter. Says that JFK refer to African countries as Boogie Republics and threaten to send a diplomat to one of them who had crossed JFK at one of its other assignment if he keeps it up, often him to one of the bookie Republics in Africa, he said. Going to see more her style. Is that like calling them s whole countries That's similar to that ours at about the same or is that words are where would you put that in this thing on Now I want you to be sure. And check out excerpt from my show every day. Just go to our new YouTube channel youtube dot com slash the Larry Elder show radio. Having difficulty finding a last No. Youtube dot com. Forward slash the Larry Elder show radio, right? And I've got some good news tomorrow. We're gonna have on Tom Soul for the entire hour. Tom. So the brilliant economists and writer a demand that David Mehmet, the playwright referred to as America's greatest contemporary philosopher. More on that in just a second, but first, Cynthia He's in Houston, Texas. Cynthia Urine Valerio to show Thank you so much for calling. Um, I have just two things to say I am asking America and I'm not a big deal. I don't believe anybody coming. Anything. I have worked for what I have, and I will continue to do so high ever. Yes, because I find some things in this country wrong and I'm willing to work to change them. Excuse me, doesn't mean anyone can tell me if I don't like it Go somewhere. My answer to that is my people. I've put in the time in the trouble. For me to be here. And I'm going on in there. Man. If that's a problem for you. Then that will be your problem. But you will have the privilege to tell me what to do. I'll decide that. Second. I don't see how an African American male Can support a president who tweets white power. He didn't eat. He didn't tweet white power. He read it. He retweeted what somebody else, said Askew. Me finished, please, as this person was in a golf cart being told F Trump F Trump because this person had trump stuff on his golf cart, and he said, in my opinion, Cynthia, he said, white power to get them angry. That not because he's of white two premises but to get these people angry. And in my opinion, they didn't deserve to be treated with respect. I don't care about the people. You're missing my point. No, you're missing my point. You want to say that Donald Trump is a racing because he retweeted somebody say white power and what I'm telling you, is he retweeted something that he deleted because people like you accused him of being racist for having tweeted it. You know what I'm saying is, I don't know what these races and I have have a relationship with him to determine what I am saying as president. Then why did you mention he retweeted the white power thing If you don't think he's a racist if you let me finish my statement what I was trying to say work as president of the United States. You're held to a higher standard. And so before you retreat, something what you should do. Listen, it is not becoming of the office. OK? Not fair enough. Fair enough. Hold hold on to a higher standard. I think when you're president, you shouldn't say. If I have a son, he looks like he looked like tray Von, I think you ought not say the Cambridge police acted stupidly. There are lots of things that Obama said that I don't think presidential Obama's not the president. Can you Republicans see that he's not the president? Not bottle bomb. You see Cynthia? It's about double standards. It's about inconsistency. Did you get upset when Obama let me finish? Did you get upset? When Obama said If I had a son, he looked like Trayvon. Sir. It's a lot of things Obama get. I asked you a specific question. Did you get upset when Obama said If I had a son, he looks like Trayvon. No, but I see. So that didn't bother you Will. It bothered me, Cynthia? He injected, injected race where didn't belong, and George Sr was found not guilty by a jury that said, race never came up. There was a black alternate, he said. Race never came up and had he been on the jury. He also would've found George Freeman not guilty. So in my opinion, Barack Obama did something irresponsible by saying if I had a son, he looked like tray Von when he was upset about that, you probably weren't So I'm gonna move on Cynthia Cynthia. Thank you very much for calling. I appreciate it. I'm not a victim, and no one could tell me where I could go. If I don't know why. I didn't tell you where you used to go somewhere else. You have to leave it Go anywhere else, Cynthia. My goodness. I'm a bad guy because I support Trump. And you mentioned that Trump retweeted somebody who said white power, But I'm not saying Trump's a racist, Then why bring it up? Please. Course you were. Triple 8971 s Cynthia's calling from Houston. When I come back, I want to tell you what our pastor in Houston said about all of this stuff. It's really quick start is like a trial packet could be at your door in a couple of days. Let's face it getting older exercise and just everyday living can create pain..

I did the frosted tips Dio my huge chair. Of course, the nineties hair was huge here, embarrassed about it.
