Compilation of Ronald Reagan's Successful Speeches on Foreign Policy
"I just want you to hear a relatively short compilation Of some of the things Reagan said during his presidency an enormously successful presidency Where he got enormous popular votes won the Electoral College numbers never seen before since probably George Washington And had a fantastically successful foreign policy Take a listen This is from again a group of his speeches just clips from the speeches Some of his best speeches against tyranny Cut 24 go And to every person trapped in tyranny whether in the Ukraine Hungary Czechoslovakia Cuba Vietnam We send our love and support and tell them they are not alone Their message must be your struggle is our struggle your dream is our dream and someday you too will be free Hey miss poop John Paul told his beloved polls We are blessed by divine heritage We are children of God and we can not be slaves History shows that it is precisely when totalitarian regimes begin to decay from within It is precisely when they feel the first real stirrings of domestic unrest That they seek to reassure their own people of their vast and unchallengeable power through imperialistic expansion or foreign adventure So the era ahead of us is one that will see grave challenges and be fought with danger Yet it's one that I firmly believe will end in the triumph of the civilized world and the supremacy of its beliefs in individual liberty of representative government and the rule of law under
Does Time Heal All Wounds in Elections? Chip Lake Weighs In
"Do you think you'll be different? If George was like Virginia that held an off year off presidential governor's race, I know Virginia, New Jersey, always hold that race right after a presidential that next year and it's always looked as a bellwether for that in Georgia. If we had done that, it would have been a year out less than 8 months from do you think the message would have been I mean, it would have been different or do you think it possibly but still be the same? You know, it's always hard to tell. I mean, you know, there's an old adage that time heals all wounds. I don't know that I buy that old adage. Time heals a lot of wounds, but it doesn't heal all wounds. And so yeah, look, what our state went through with as close as the presidential election was. And then with the two Senate runoffs that we had where we lost both of them, that was a lot for our state to go through. And so, you know, I do think we're in a better position today than we were in, let's say, 2021. And so, you know, I guess from a macro level, my answer to that question would be, yeah, I think we're, I think we will be in a better position in November of 2022 than we were in November of 2021. That isn't always the case, right? Because, you know, there are so many variables that go into why people vote. There are so many variables that go into the intensity of what the base has. And one of the reasons that I think Republicans in spite of having a. Very nasty race for governor between David perdue and Brian camp, one of the reasons I've always thought, even sent from the day that David got in that I've always thought that we could beat Stacey Abrams is because I think the environment in 2022 for Republicans, it might be, it could possibly be the best midterm environment that we've seen in our lifetimes.
Voting Surges in Georgia Despite New Election Integrity Law
"In Georgia, where they promised that votes would be suppressed because of Georgia's new election integrity law. Early voting for the leading up to the primary is surging record numbers of voters in the state of Georgia. Wait a minute, Stacey Abrams, I know you're off complaining about Georgia being the worst state in America to live in and oh yeah, she said that over the weekend and she wants to be governor. But why don't you apologize for promising that votes would be suppressed by George's new voter integrity? Election integrity law. Their whole narrative is falling apart. It's coming undone.
John Zmirak and Eric Reflect on the Iraq Invasion
"There are certain things you can't make up. I mean, I want to frame this again for people who aren't paying attention because maybe they're not, they're not tracking, I was for the Iraq invasion back when. You were against it. And I remember talking to you and not understanding, I thought, aren't all conservatives for this isn't Saddam Hussein, a monster. And by the way, of course, he was a truly evil monster. There's no doubt about that. But it didn't occur to me at the time that there are reasons not to attack Saddam Hussein and so on and so forth. So I was for it. All these years later, thanks to not just John's mirac, but Donald Trump, we have had a reevaluation. And I think that people now realize not only was it wrong, but it was a disaster on many levels. And then we start understanding that all the people who got us into the many messages in which we are today also got us into the mess of the Iraq War. It's the neocons. It's not magga people. It's not people who want to put America first. It's globalists. It is really tremendously wicked. And so here you have George Bush, do the ultimate Freudian slips of all time. So wonderful. It's the sort of thing that Will Ferrell would make up on SNL or something. But no, no, this actually happened. It's so great. I mean, the underlying reality is grotesque. We are, we killed between 507 100,000 civilians in our invasion of Iraq, which was based on false intelligence and made up junk intelligence that the neocons were shoving past the FBI and putting straight into The White House. There were hundreds of experts saying there are no weapons of mass destruction. The UN inspector said there are no weapons of mass destruction. Nobody had any real evidence of weapons of mass distraction. Colin Powell gets goes in front of the UN with doctored photos that don't represent what he says they are. Condoleezza Rice says, we don't want the next smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud in Manhattan. They use our trauma over 9 11 to make us think that Saddam Hussein is building nukes and is going to smuggle them into America. They make us think he was involved in 9 11, which he wasn't. They make us think he was getting uranium, which he couldn't. I mean, it was just this for rago of lies. And I guess Eric, you're a nicer person, maybe because you grew up in Connecticut, you didn't think your own political leaders of your own party were lying to you to get back. No, of course I
The Fight Against Tyranny Is Different for Every Generation
"Against tyranny is different for every single generation. There are always people because of personality types and other reasons that want to control others. Now, I know a lot for a lot of you. This is a foreign concept. For a lot of you, you want to be free. You don't want to actually have so much power that you micromanage the decisions of others. But for a subset of the population for a variety of different reasons, they dream of how to control. Their relevancy and their ambition is anchored and rooted in their capacity and their ability to be able to tell people how to live their lives, to make sure freedom and liberty is an ever decreasing window. Every generation has to fight tyranny for the American founders it was king George and the tyranny of the British Empire. There's been all sorts of different types of fights against tyranny in the history of humanity. But we
Joe Biden; The Most Corrupt President in American History
"Promo code prager. Thank you, Dennis, and it's always a privilege. It never gets old, and it's never unappreciated. Dennis is unique, and there's no one else I'd rather fill in for. Many years ago, actually this house started many years ago Dennis said to me, you know, those are pretty big shoes for you to fill in for. Me, meaning his size. What does that Sean a size 12 size 13? What is this where? I don't even know. But he didn't mean his shoes were so big, right, he meant just, well, maybe he did because he told me I thought 12 or 13, I may be totally wrong. We've got to find that out. But big shoes they are because no one in the media is quite like him, including offering the inside he does in so many issues. So I just try to give you my perspective on life and issues and maybe one of these days my own podcast. You know, with all the teaching and everything else I do, it's been hard to get it going, but we will at some point. In this first hour I talked about whether we need a new Declaration of Independence to take back our country from the left. In this hour I want to talk about the specific charges against the king, because I said, right, the founders revolted rebelled against the king of England. As they seek to control our lives and make us into their left wing utopia. That's what they're doing. But if this is important, if you understand their ultimate goal, they're specific policy disasters, make more sense. You think they failed because they don't work. But they think they succeeded because they've created chaos and disorder. Just as with the policies of the king of England, so many years ago. But of course, Joe Biden is no king. He doesn't have a set of principles and he never did. Actually has one set of principle. That's the grow his principle. If you don't mind the pun. He might be the most corrupt president we've ever had. In any case, he's actually more of a placeholder for the left than anything else. And Kamala Harris, my God. Is she over her head? She must have always want to power to make up for her insecurities, of which there must be many. That's my guess. I'm no psychologist. Sean, do you remember the Peter principal? He's looking at me funny. He's just doesn't look that way. Of course. A quizzical look. It was the Peter principal said that you're doing your job well and then they promote you to the higher job and that's where you fail because you were very good at what you did before, but you're not so good in a promoted role. In my other field as a teacher, you wouldn't believe how many bad a system principles and principles there are. They might have been very good teachers. That's kind of what the Peter principal was. But she was an awful senator if you remember that. And an awful attorney general before that. I think Dennis even debated her once. But yes, you know what she was? A good friend of former speaker of the California assembly, Willie Brown. Actually, I don't know if she was a good friend, Willie Brown. You'd have to ask Willie Brown, right? We don't even know if she was Sean, why are your eyes going like cross eyed? You're not saying anything. Neither am I. But we never checked lily Brown about that. It's hard to believe, though, that these are the highest office holders in our country. They're an embarrassment to our country. But again, they're clearly being controlled by the left. Whether it's Obama, that's my guess, is people or other leftists. Do you remember the event weeks ago where Obama came back? I guess for the first time to visit The White House. And he comes back and everybody's around him and he's up mister terrific. And Joe Biden wandered around looking for someone to say hello to hip, just to say, now that was pathetic to watch. I almost felt sorry for him as bad as he is as corrupt as he is. But of course you have to ask this question. Why does Biden's wife and I kind of hinted at it in the first hour, she must be so obsessed with power to have ever cared about protecting her husband's dignity. What about his dignity? You can say, well, if your mean, you say you'd never had any. But in fact, that defines all of them seeking power to make up for their shortcomings as people. That's what I guess. They seek power to define themselves, especially power over other people. That's my best guess. Let me know what you think. One 8 prager 7 7 6. And it includes people on our side, too. Like Mitt Romney, if I had a guess, if you remember his father didn't do well running for president, I forgot the incident that happened on not going to say he cried or something that would have been, that was Mike dukakis, I think, of Massachusetts, but there was something, and all of a sudden he failed miserably in his quest for the presidency. So my guess is Mitt Romney's avenging for his father's undignified loss of the presidency. But, you know, I've apologized. Many times for being a delegate for it. He fooled me too for a while. But Dennis said he met with him and he didn't care about principles. Yeah, that makes sense. And Liz Cheney. Oh my God. Trying to preserve, I guess her father's legacy, whatever that was. If anything, she's tarnished what, with many of her pronouncements, she's tarnished what people thought about her dad, Dick Cheney. I suspect that all these people have deep personal problems, and I never feel that they care what is best first for our country. That they care best first, what's best for them. But they are part of the leftist cabal, whether they know it or not. What did the Russians call them useful idiots? So back to the charges. We had charges against the king and I mentioned in the first hour that's what the Declaration of Independence was about. So what are our charges begin with against this would be president. The stealing of the presidency. They never accepted Trump's victory, and they were willing to stop at nothing to make sure he lost. Including, as you know, the Russian hoax, what, two years impeachments, and the banning from social media. And now they have lawsuits against him and other enemies. Anybody who had anything to do with them. These people have no moral guard rails, except to win at all costs. That's it. And I said in the first hour, they're likely 20 anomalies over 20 that had to happen for Trump to lose. But they did win and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are in office because of blatant fraud. As the movie 2000 mules demonstrates pretty well itself. So, mister king Biden, our first charge you never should have been declared king because you ascended to the throne illegally. How many of you, you can call me one of the prager 7 6 7 7 6? How many of you listeners like me still cringe when they call on President Biden? I still have trouble with that. It's like calling the person who stole your house, the homeowner. And to add insult to injury, the king had his Justice Department, as you know, throw innocent people into jail, summoned to solitary confinement, as I mentioned, because of January 6th, and they call it an insurrection. I love that. That was an insurrection. I don't think so. Riff raff and all kinds of people maybe, but insurrection, I don't think so. Of course, your edicts at the very beginning like ending our pipelines and drilling the ending of drilling for fossil fuels and discouraging just the scourge leases, just the other week I think it was. But it's part of your plan, see, that's what I said. You got to understand what they're up to. That's their plan to destroy capitalism and markets that we're working here. To this day, even in light of high gas prices, you continue this policy as part of the Green New Deal. And that's going to help destroy our country. So what do they do? They printed a lot of money to assuage the peasants doing my analogy with the king with your trillions of dollars in giveaways. It's a way to make them more dependent on your government. When you make people give them money then they start to depend on the government. It makes me think of a story when I first started teaching. I think it was a fourth grade kid. He's running around the school building wildly. It wasn't my student. And I finally caught up to him. I said, you know, what are you going to do with this? What are you going to do with your life? In fourth grade, he said to me, I'll go on welfare. His family must have been on welfare. He already knew that term. That was his dream, I guess, or that's what he had hoped. So that's what you do with the printing and money. And as you know, with inflation at a control, it won't be long before your Marie Antoinette, Kamala Harris, says let them eat cake. Sean, you do remember Marie Antoinette? In history, if nothing else, Dennis did not debate Marie Antoinette. You don't have to look that up. Debate between Dennis Murray. But of course, I'm confused in two different revolutions. But a revolution we have on the streets through your defunding of the police, you're just less department allowing the left to right and commit mayhem to scare, get this now, the masses into needing your protection. That's what's going on. And of course, we know that the DA's all across this country funded by George Soros of letting them out. I read a story the other day. They can't get police in many cities. Who would want to be a policeman these days? You lock sum it up. They're out in jail before you could even say boo. And just like Putin protesting his liberation of Nazis in the Ukraine, that was a justification. You come up with this phony white supremacy, as the number one problem in our country, and the reason for the crackdown of our civil liberties. I can see all these juxtapositions with what you're doing and with communism and dictatorship. A long, of course, with charges about America being a white supremacist country because you use race baiting at every chance because you have nothing else.
"george w." Discussed on Fresh Air
"With some of those who truly knew him best. His brother Patrick, his first wife Brenda, and his daughter Kelly. All of them look at George's life and their own with the objective honesty the George eventually brought to his stand up act. And while we learn of George's abuse of father and oppressive mother, and of George and Brenda's descent into drugs and alcoholism, respectively, we also learn about what drove George Carlin to keep developing and altering his approach to comedy. In audiotapes recorded for his autobiography last words, Carl and explains his disdain for authority figures in almost clinically detached terms. My own experience of authority is one of opposition to not just questioning authority, but actively opposing it and trying to undo what it had in mind. Everything that had rules and regulations, I managed to either get kicked out of or leave early on my own. The choir, the altar boys, the Boy Scouts, summer camp, and schools. The first half of this excellent HBO documentary follows George Carlin's many evolutionary stages, providing clear samples of each. Stage one arrives in 1957, when at age 18, young George joins the air force. He lands a part time job as a disc jockey in Louisiana using the kind of on air voice and persona, he would later make fun of. 18 minutes before 5 o'clock, and this is music from Carlin's corner, and that ain't half of it, $30 in the lucky license jackpot, a call going out soon. Coming up Warren storm with trouble. I got trouble. Troubles. He forms a two man comedy team with Jack burns, and they moved to California. The duo breaks up after only a few months, but Carlin stays put, pursuing his interest in comedy. He's in the audience of a Lenny Bruce show on one of the night's Bruce gets arrested. And Carlin gets arrested, too, out of solidarity. His own onstage comedy then, in nightclubs and on TV, is mainstream and conventional. Until suddenly it isn't. When he starts to introduce such counterculture concepts and characters as TVs obviously drugged out, hippy dippy weather me. Okay, the radar is picking up a line of thunder showers from Utica New York to Middletown. However, the radar is also picking up a squadron of Russian ICBMs. I wouldn't sweat the thunder, shower. Tonight. No 25° to Mars high whenever I get up. As the 60s progresses and Carlin decides to talk about issues more directly, he refocuses his energies. He starts booking appearances almost exclusively on college campuses, where the students would be more receptive to his new material. His beard and his hair get longer, and his comedy routines get more topical. As when heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali's conscientious objection to the Vietnam War has him stripped of his title for several years before finally being allowed to step back into the ring. George Carlin, talking outdoors to a small college crowd, sees more than a little irony in that whole situation. Hey, they're letting Ali fight. He happened to lose, but at least they're letting him work again, right? For three years, the cat couldn't work. Muhammad Ali. And of course he had an unusual job beating people up, you know? But the government wanted to change jobs. The government wanted him to kill people. He said, no, that's where I draw the line. I'll beat him up, but I don't want to kill him. And the government got spiteful, they said, look, if you won't kill him, we won't let you beat him up. From there, George Carlin's comedy routines get more dense, more bold, and more obsessed with the poetry, meanings, and impact of language. All this leads to such uncensored comedy albums as class clown. Put out, I learned in this documentary by a record label owned by another groundbreaking comedian, Flip Wilson. That album includes his infamous 7 dirty words routine, which identifies and talks about the 7 words you can't say on television. When New York radio station WBAI played parts of that routine, it was objected to by an outraged parent tuning in, leading to a court case pitting the FCC against the corporate owners of the radio station. It was a free speech case, FCC versus the Pacific a foundation that went all the way to the Supreme Court. The court voted in favor of the FCC in what basically was a blow against free speech. Carlin wasn't saying those words for shock value. He was talking about their usage and symbolism and why they had been given such power. Many young George Carlin listeners recognized the subtleties in the issue and the comedy routine that the Supreme Court had not, and some of them grew up to also become comedians obsessed with words. One of those youngsters was Stephen Colbert, who later became a household name because of such self created words as truthiness. He was a giant George Carlin fan. Is that he's The Beatles? Of comedy. At a certain point in his career, there's this huge shift. You know, he's doing the community conversion of love me do for the first part of his career. And then suddenly he puts out the comedic white album. Another major George Carlin enthusiast was Jerry Seinfeld, who also, like Carlin, delighted in questioning the accepted norms around him and using precise language to do so. He personified that thing that you see when you're young and you go that. That's it. That's the thing. That's the thing to be. And I want it to be just like him getting every word in the right spot. Because when he did it, it thrilled me, you know. And I wanted to do that. I wanted that skill. And I've spent my life pursuing it. The first night of George Carlin's American Dream follows his rise to stardom, his 7 dirty words controversy, and his counterculture coronation as the very first guest host on the premiere episode of Saturday Night Live. It ends, though, with Carlin's seemingly on the wane, no longer in touch or in Vogue. But he was determined to change and rise again by being even truer to himself and his opinions. In part two of American Dream, and for the rest of his life, George Carlin did exactly that. George Carlin's American Dream premieres tonight and tomorrow night on HBO with both parts available today on HBO Max. After a break, we're going to listen back to portions of two of Terry's interviews with George Carlin. This is fresh air.

Charlie Sits Down With Georgia Senator David Purdue
"There are some very important races coming up and one in particular that we want to highlight for you is a contentious gubernatorial primary. It's happening in the great state of Georgia, love Georgia and great people there. Unfortunately, they have a horrendous governor, and with us right now is someone former senator from Georgia, who is primarying the sitting governor of Georgia, who is no longer a senator largely because of the sitting governor of Georgia, and that is David perdue, who is in a very contentious primary against governor Brian Kemp. Senator perdue, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Charlie, good to see you again, man. Thanks for everything you're doing. Well, thank you. We did everything we could to try to push you across the finish line in that runoff. I believe that you would have avoided that runoff if the state of Georgia would have been run properly from an election standpoint with governor Kemp tell us why you decided to launch this primary, a primary campaigns can be very difficult, especially against incumbents, talk about that, while you're running and how is the race going? Well, sure. Thanks for coming down to George at that time. We had the whole world to send down here and you guys really made a difference. I should have never been in that runoff. This race was rigged and stolen in November 2020. Our current governor was Secretary of State for 9 years. He was governor for four. He's never enforced voting law in Georgia. He allowed a consent decree to go through that change voter ID on absentee ballots. He allowed 7 and a half million empty ballots to be mailed out to every registered voter. He allowed drop boxes and he allowed the change in the rule that allowed Zuckerberg to put $55 million into 9 Democrat counties. Everything I just mentioned is outside the law. So they violated the law by allowing all that to happen. And then afterwards, when I asked for a special session to get at to the problems before the runoff to fix these things, he denied that. I went to court, they denied that. I even asked for the resignation of our Secretary of State, I got so frustrated. Brad raffensperger. And since then, as you've pointed out, with Greg Phillips and Catherine inglebright in the ballot trafficking data, there is a hard evidence right now that governor has been covering this data and now is suppressing that evidence. And this is one of the reasons I
Conservatives Aren't Good at Holding Conservative Leaders Accountable
"What's fascinating to me is how those of us who would describe ourselves as conservatives typically don't hold our leaders accountable to conservative principles. In other words, George Bush, in many ways, was not much of a conservative. And we let him get away with that at the time. And so that's shame on us. Because honestly, the more time passes, the older you get, the more clear it is, that you can never let this go. You can never let this go. You have to, we have to make the case for these conservative principles. And you know, I don't even want the word conservative. These are foundational American principles. This is the founder's vision of small government of genuine liberty. I talk a lot about this about how we have ceased to really teach what that is. And as you see, to teach what that is, it's much easier to drift, which is why we've been
Court brings back NYC ban on police restraint during arrests
"A New York appeals court has reinstated a New York City law that prohibits the city's police officers from putting pressure on a person's torso while making an arrest A beak correspondent Norman hall reports A 5 judge panel of the appellate division of the state's trial court ruled that the law passed in 2020 in the wake of the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd is clear in what officers can and can't do and won't lead to arbitrary or discriminatory enforcement The law bans officers from the training people in a manner that compresses the diaphragm It also outlaws the use of choke holds A Manhattan judge struck down the law last year after police union sued the city to block it The police union now says it's reviewing its legal options I Norman
New York Times Says Georgia Voting Law 'Limits Ballot Access'
"In Georgia It was a very simple law Basically implemented some voting day measures measures which would make it really easy to vote but to make it a little bit harder to cheat I say a little bit because you can still cheat I wish you couldn't but you can It's sad but you can see if you want to cheat you can still cheat And one of them involved voter ID Oh my gosh did the left loose their minds Here's The New York Times from April of 2021 by a guy named Nick Horace and Reid J Epstein these people sound very very intelligent They write for The New York Times so clearly they're smarter than us They wrote in April of 2020 when Nick chorus Senate what George is voting law really does The New York Times analyzed the state's new 98 page law And identified 16 key provisions that will get ready Limit ballot access oh no we can't have that limit ballot That sounds terrible My gosh what would you want to limit ballot access New York Times notes it will also potentially confuse voters They think you're an
AG Merrick Garland Is Spineless
"Now, you could disagree with the federal statute, but there is a federal statute that prohibits the protests that we're seeing outside the house of the Supreme Court Justices. And you know something? Merrick Garland is spineless. Merrick Garland, I have to say, must want to encourage this unlawful behavior. How many people did you hear on the left, condemning buildings being burned to the ground? Because George Floyd died. How many people on MSNBC or CNN are from the Biden administration? Did you hear routinely condemn acts of violence? The police who were assaulted, people who were killed, remember the retired cop in St. Louis, shot dead trying to protect his buddy's business from being burned to the ground. This shot dead right in the street. Who got who's held accountable for that? They ever catch that person? That person ever been prosecuted? Now, I guarantee every last one of them of January 6th to be in prosecuted. How about the person who murdered Dorne in St. Louis? This is we are in a dangerous time. The Democrats are dangerous. And when they're trying to blame us for the buffalo supermarket, all they're trying to do is project what they themselves are guilty of. They're just deflecting their own guilt. They are openly at tell me where I'm wrong.
'United We Pledge' Is Recreating an American Village in Alabama
"Now, I want to ask you, so you're saying that united we pledge already has something called the American village in montevallo, Alabama, because I had not heard about this till today. No, no, what I'm saying is that Montebello Alabama is an American village. And the united we pledge has partnered with a company called balance of nature and they've procured about 40 acres of land in Utah that they're going to recreate an American village there. That's what I'm saying. So there is an American village in Alabama already. Yes. But I had not heard about this. I want to go to montevallo, Alabama now that I've literally not heard about this. And you should. I hadn't heard about it either until they brought it up, and then when they brought it up to me and they came up with this idea of me running from Montevideo Alabama to saint George, you don't have to break around for this thing. You know, I think that we have a whole mind body, right? You have your gut, you have your heart, you have your head, and all three have brain cells. My gut just goes, go for it. My heart was like, oh, you gotta do this. You know? And then my mind just said, yeah, it's a resounding yes. This is the right time, the right place, and the right thing. So then when I visited montevallo, Alabama and saw with my own two eyes, the impact that this American village had with these kids, it was just like, oh man, let's get going.
Extreme Athlete Tom Jones Is Running 76 Marathons for a Cause
"I'm not making this up. He's my guest right now. Tom Jones, welcome to the Erik metaxas show. Hey Eric, thanks for having me on. Look, I want to ask you so many questions. First of all, the principal reason I'm having you on is because you are going to be doing something fairly shortly along the lines you just described. What is this thing that you're going to be doing soon? Actually, I'm almost right in the middle of it. I've run 30 back to back marathons as we speak in the middle of it now. Yes, yes, we left April 19th from montevallo, Alabama, and I've been running a marathon a day every day since then, including today. A marathon a day, okay, that's not something I've ever done, even for a single day. So what you're doing right now, it's affiliated with united we pledge. What is united we pledge? Because I know your goal is to draw awareness to the constitution to American freedom. What is united we pledge? The united we pledge is a nonprofit organization and what they're doing is they're building a very special and magical place called the American village. And the American village is a place that has recreations exact replica recreations of buildings that were instrumental in the constitution and the Revolutionary War. And they also have people that play the parts of people that were instrumental in that time, like George Washington, Ben Franklin, Paul Revere, Paul Revere's wife, men and women, they have colonial soldiers. And what they do is they bring in families and in particular kids, and they let them step onto the stage of American history and become part of the story. So it's a very, very impactful experience as far as history goes.
Why Racism Is Never the True Story of Mass Shootings
"In Texas the day after the buffalo attack a shootout between 5 Hispanic men at a crowded, flea market, left two dead and three wounded. Roughly two hours later in California, a 68 year old Asian gunman walked into a Taiwan east church and opened fire, killing one person and wounding 5 others. This is what crime looks like in America. It is chaotic, disordered, and irreducible. The skin color of its victims and perpetrators is far from fixed. Racism then is not the whole story, in fact, racism has never been the whole story. Yet faced with an election year in an uphill battle to retain the House and Senate this November, perhaps it is unsurprising that so many Democrats are keen to turn the buffalo shooting into another George Floyd moment. That's perfect. Perfect. An excuse to deflect difficult questions and to turn politics into a binary realm of good and evil once again we're told Evie or with us or you're a racist.

"george w." Discussed on This American President
"Despite his unspectacular political style, he enjoyed impressive political success. Bush was, in many ways, the key figure in one of America's foremost political dynasties. His father Prescott Bush was a U.S. senator from Connecticut and a strong supporter of president Dwight D. Eisenhower. Bush's own son, George W. Bush, would go on to serve as governor of Texas, and as the 43rd president of the United States. His second son, Jeb Bush, served as governor of Florida. George H. W. Bush himself was called to serve his country continuously for over half a century. After serving in World War II, he became a U.S. congressman from Texas, ambassador to the United Nations, chief diplomat to the People's Republic of China, director of the CIA, and eventually vice president. It's often said that presidents are known for focusing primarily on either foreign policy or domestic policy. Bush, like many other Cold War presidents, was focused primarily on foreign policy. And had the unique opportunity to learn from the successes and failures of the multiple presidents he served during the Cold War. For example, as UN ambassador and liaison to the People's Republic of China, when he served in the Nixon and foreign administrations, bush participated firsthand in America's detente policy. And he saw how that played out in the context of the Cold War. Bush had a front row seat to Nixon and his national security adviser, Henry Kissinger, two grand strategists, exercising their influence over the Soviet Union and China. Bush was an intensely loyal vice president to president Reagan. Supporting Reagan's hard line against the Soviets, as well as a new relationship that Reagan forge with Gorbachev. Throughout the Cold War, the American people constantly face the possibility of nuclear annihilation. They lived through decades of crises, wars in Korea and Vietnam, confrontations in Berlin and Cuba. When the Berlin Wall came crashing down in 1989. And the Soviet Union later collapsed in 1991. The world was in uncharted territory. Although there was great optimism, there was also a fear that these tremendous changes could spin out of control. With this thought in mind, America looked to Bush, respected for his steady leadership. To navigate the complexities of the Soviet collapse and master the rapidly changing global environment. How Bush handled this awesome responsibility is the subject of this episode of this American president. George H. W. Bush took office on January 20th, 1989. 200 years after George Washington's inauguration, a milestone in.

"And yet there's no unity. No unity no unity. Why isn't there unity. We all know. There's no unity. And it's because the basic principles that unite. The united states have gone the way of the a bird. They were barely there. Even when bush was president in fact many of them crumbled while bush was president. And this is what's so frustrating. I think so. Many people on the right watching george w bush's speech and looking at many in the republican establishment. Who seem to feel the same way. As george w bush that unity is just around the corner. If only i condemn this specific set of people but not broadly speaking all people who commit these sorts of sins like that. It's playing right into the hands of people who actively use yun of unity as a as a guise for a uniformity and again. I i do find it calling the george w bush apparently only emerges to critique the perspectives of people. He purports to see his on the right right like that. That is it's particularly going to me. Especially when you have. The president of the united states who just destroyed george w bush legacy in afghanistan. Let's be frank about this. George w bush went into afghanistan. With uniformity of purpose there was uniformity. One member of congress voted against it. Hey everyone was going to afghanistan. Even barack obama two thousand it was calling it. The good war in two thousand eight and joe biden decided to pull out and hand the country directly to the taliban and then on the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven. He was talking about why he was right to do so. And talking about and setting up these false binary. Where i mean. It's unbelievable. He's in places like shanksville he's meeting with. He's meeting with first responders. And he's talking about how you know. We really have to be circumspect. In how we.

"Joe biden is praising george w bush for the unity speech but he's really praising him because he believes that george w bush is attacking people purportedly of the right. But never anybody on left right. This is what unity means. People of joe biden's ilk unity. Means we are right and you're wrong and you shut up and if you disagree there's no unity that's what joe biden means and i don't take seriously that joe biden is particularly upset about january sex because january six is worse in-kind then the riots. We saw that wreck the cities across the summer and have led to an radically exacerbated murder rate in every major city in america. I just don't believe that that he he even believes that. I think that he believes that people who agree with his agenda are basically good and people who disagree with his agenda are basically bad. That is not a unifying perspective. Kamala harris is doing the same thing. You're granting this is why. I'm very frustrated with with george w bush speech not because of the critique of one sex but because of the inability to to know and understand that radicalism on all sides of all aisles is a major major problem when you only critique one side of the aisle and then you say that unity is in the offing your incorrect. All you're doing is granting favor to people who have actively promoted the disunity if not willing condemn all of the bad things you're only condemn some of the bad things. You're fomenting others of the bad things. The left knows this. Which is why. They were using bush's speech over the weekend. Here's kamala harris doing the same thing calling for unity. This is absolutely gulling stuff. Coming from camara's. I mean it's here here. She is calling for unity. Unity is imperative. In america it is essential to our shared prosperity to our national security and to are standing in the world and by unity. I don't mean uniformity. We had differences of opinion in two thousand and one as we do in twenty twenty one. And i believe that in america our diversity is our strength is. She's a liar when she says that she doesn't believe the unity is uniformity. No she one hundred percent does she does not believe in diversity of opinion in any serious way you can look into legislative record on this. It is pretty clear is not a person who deeply cares about. Diversity of opinion is a person is part of an administration that is attacking other americans forever city of opinion yet. The same thing from media at jim acosta doing the same thing. What happened to our unity. what happened. we didn't just become divided. We let hate into our hearts for each other. There was an expression used after nine. Eleven all gave some some gave all. We don't really do that anymore. Some of us don't want to give anything at all. We live in separate worlds. Now we don't agree on the same facts anymore. We can't even agree on wearing masks circuiting vaccinated to end this pandemic. Why isn't there unity..

"Go check them out right now. Okay so george. W bush goes to the nine eleven memorial in shanksville and he proceeds to say some very very nice thing and then he says one thing that ends up being the headline of course because he was trying to say something unifying end zone. He failed so he starts off by talking. About how americans when we are forced together are exceptional. Which of course is true. Twenty years ago terrorist shows random group of americans on a routine flight to be collateral damage in a spectacular active terror. The thirty three passengers and seven crew flag ninety three could've been any group of citizens selected by fate in the sense. They stood in for us. All the terrorists soon discovered that a random group of americans is an exceptional group of people facing an impossible circumstance. They comforted their loved. Ones by phone braced each other for action and defeated the designs of evil. And all of that was true. And this is the world. The george w bush i think wishes to occupy frankly world. I wished occupies. Well i mean i. I think that what happened on flight. Ninety three is a great indicator of what americans are when put to the test. George w bush continued along these lines and he talked a little bit about the men and women who have served in harm's way and you start to see the first inklings here of why the bush presidency which again i think that that bush in many ways as mana principle but the bush presidency was a disappointing failure in many ways and i think one of the reasons was because again he he just did not defend his own policy. She did not defend what he was doing. So here he was it's twenty years later. We've now surrendered in afghanistan. So the very people who perpetrated nine eleven and george w bush has had not a word to say about. That really had not one word about policy. Is he satisfied well. Joe biden surrendered entire country back to the exact people who did nine eleven. I mean look. The exact people who did nine eleven had nothing to say about that instead. He has heard of comforting words for the for the men members military which is fine. But where is he when it comes to the actual serious questions of policy. Let me speak directly to veterans and people in uniform because you pursued at the call of duty is the noblest america has to offer. You have shielded your fellow citizens from danger. You have defended the beliefs of your country and advance the rights of the downtrodden. You have been to face of hope and mercy in dark places. You've been a force for good in the world. Nothing that is followed. Nothing can tarnish your honor or diminish your accomplishments to you. Enter the honor dead. Our country is forever. Grateful has a rather oblique critique of the by foreign in afghanistan. Okay so if you're going to unity speech then what you really need to talk about our unifying principles rainy to talk about. What brings america together and george bush. Many of those things in that speech. But if you're going to critique the critique has to be pointed and it has to be specific or at least it has to be broad enough to encompass the big problems in american society people on the right. I think responded with the trump era because of the obama era. but also. because the bushehr as we'll see in just one thing. Because here is george w bush. This is the clip that made all the headlines. Right wasn't all of the talk about unity. It wasn't all the talk about bring americans together. It was this line from george w bush that brought all the commentary. This line where he compares the january sixth rioters to the nine eleven hijackers. We have seen growing evidence that the dangerous to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But then there's disdainful laura's them in their disregard for human life in their determination to defile national symbols. Sh they are children of the same foul spirit ended his are continuing duty to confront them. Okay so everybody took this. As a critique of the one six riders now it's possible to read it as a broader critique than that that he's talking about white supremacists or that he is talking about. Nt or that. he's talking about black lives matter. The problem is of course he released a statement in favor of black lives matter last june in which he talked about stem american racism and all the rest of the left wing buzzwords and it is also possible to say that the one six riders did something evil. I have said that many many times. I think that storm the capitol building on the basis of a falsehood. Both at the election was stolen and that the election results were capable of being overturned after having been certified at the state level. That was all that was not true. And the storm the capitol building to compare those people still the nine eleven hijackers who literally murdered three thousand americans the only american who was actually killed at the capitol on one six like died at the capitol unwanted sex because of direct action by another human being the only person who actually died because of that was actually babbitt right who shot at the capitol and choose one of the writers and that that is not remotely the same thing as the nine eleven hijackers. Either in their aims mean. The golden eleven hijackers was to completely overthrow the system of the united states not because they quote unquote stolen election or anything like that but because they didn't believe in elections they believe in full on sharia law. They wanted to kind of governance that you see in afghanistan. The comparison fails on nearly every level. But what's more important. Is i think george w bush thought that he was saying something unifying here which that attacks on american institutions and attacks on american principles are unacceptable across the board but the feeling that people get on. The right is that he doesn't mean it across the board and by the way that was the feeling on the left as well because the left thought he meant that across the board if they thought that he equally meant the one six riders and the people who burn down american cities last summer resulting in at least five billion dollars in property damage. Two billion dollars of insured the that they felt that he was applying that to antifa with the same sort of alacrity that who's applying that to white supremacists then might be some sort of unity but they don't feel like that and neither left in the reason you can tell the left doesn't feel like that is because they were giving in this strange new respect treatment and this is what's truly going after eight years of defending george w bush and his policies for eight years of going to political battle for.
"george w." Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
"Wireless already so. I will admit to a sneaking fondness for president. George w bush who the president for most of my late childhood. I was sixteen years old. When george w bush took office in two thousand and in two thousand and one star seventeen sixteen. Seventeen right on that ran accussed and And he was president. Obviously for the next eight years it was a quite defining time in my thinking. And i remember defending george w bush from all the people who called him bush hitler and on people said that he lied us into war and all the people who suggested that he was it war criminal and the main gripe the many people who were george w bush fans had is the george w bush spent eight years being very nice person. He's been eight years basically allowing everybody to attack him with alacrity and never defending himself. It always felt as though there were millions. And millions of americans were outspending his policies and he was not doing a good job of defending his own policies and then he left and when he left who's very unpopular because of the economic downturn and essentially disappeared for years from the american political scene. Because like his father he believed that ex-president shouldn't really be seen and they really shouldn't be heard they should just sort of go away and allow their successors to what they're going to do. But then george w bush started cropping up in places from time to time. You'd see him doing an ad campaign with the clintons and the obamas. Utm hobnobbing with michelle obama and everytime he spoke out politically. It seemed like he was doing so in order to ding the right. It seemed as though he would never speak out with regard to the left because that would have been insulting. But you would speak out about ted cruz for example or he would speak out about lack lives matter. He put out a statement last year. Those very sympathetic toward black lives matter. And now george w. bush showed up in the nine eleven memorial in shanksville pennsylvania to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven. And i think that george w bush represents a certain sort of delusional conciliatory attitude that some establishment republicans still have with regard to politics. Now i think you can have worthwhile useful discussions. The people on the opposite side of the political. I do it all the time. And on our sunday specially routinely invite people who are not of my political thinking and we have long form discussions about that. I may do that more than anybody else on. The right appear on shows where people disagree with me pretty frequently and i think it's important to do so but to pretend that we are at a level of unity in american politics where we simply are not is to mistake the moment it is to ignore where we are in american politics and frankly where we have been for very long time because the truth is that american politics was very broken even during the bush era. I know that we're supposed to look back and think that world the end spinning during the trump era or during the obama era the reality is it did not take long after nine eleven for the left immediately to swivel and start beating george w bush with a hammer it did not take long for hillary clinton to appear on the floor of the senate saying what did bush know. And when did you know at about nine. Eleven the implication being that bush administration had ignored the intelligence that would have prevented nine. Eleven for example is not take long for howard dean to start talking about how george w bush was essentially a war criminal. It did not take very long for the democratic media to try to suggest that george w bush was a liar that he was a fool that he was attempting to license war in iraq that he was a warmonger and all the rest or that he had gotten stuck in a quagmire. That was the word of the day in two thousand. Three and george w bush never really seemed to understand what had happened. I think after nine eleven he was still working in the nine eleven mode because there was a transformative moment for just a moment in american politics is the only time i can remember it. My entire lifetime. After nine eleven there was a feeling among americans. They yes actually. There is an existential enemy out there and then enemy is not us and we. We may not like our neighbors. We may think that the people who disagree with us on politics in america. Have it wrong but there is a difference in kind between the guy who lives down the street and disagrees with you about tax law and the person who is attempting to fly a plane into a building resulting in three thousand american deaths and the pictures of human beings jumpings their death from the eighty fifth story of the world trade center. They though those the difference in kind from brief moments in america there was a feeling like okay. We're we're unified as a country and went away almost immediately one way very very very quickly and i don't think the george w bush everley took stock of that. I think he's always been longing for that. Moment again. understand it entered the understand the nostalgia for that moment but to pretend that that is the underlying reality of america right now and when you get right down to it. We still are all friends. We still all agree. We still are on the same page. I think ignores how much has changed over the course of the last twenty years. I think why we are in such dire situation. It's why have written three separate books now. About why it seems like our unifying principles are coming apart principles that we actually did sort of commonly hold even two thousand at principles about the general rule of government american life. It was bill clinton who was saying in the nineteen nineties. Era of big government was over principles that we held about the necessity for treating other human beings as individuals. It was bill clinton when nineteen ninety-two is having a sister soldier moment meaning. He was literally saying to people that sort of equity talk you hear from the left. The racial talk here from left today and is celebrated by. The white house was then rejected by the democratic party. The colorblind notions the martin. Luther king junior was was promoting. Those notions had taken predominance in american life. As of two thousand that is not the case in america in two thousand twenty one. There's a very serious rift. In american life in an american philosophy and in american politics and that's a rift in value and think george w bush really understands that into what that ends with is george w bush at the nine eleven memorial. Saying something that i think is ends up. He's trying to be unifying and it ends up being divisive because he doesn't understand the nature of modern america. It's this disconnect between establishment politicians and people who are sort of in the elite coterie of american life. It's disconnect between those folks and the rest of america that leads to the rise of populism and put the left and the right. He's at the top of the chain. There are people who are like. Yeah we understand that politics is really sort of just rock himself and robots. It's all just a game. It's it's sort of is though if you're a of a baseball team and you watch the players on the field you want them to be competitive with each other because you understand that something is at stake and then somebody hits home run it ends the game and the other guys go out there. And they're giving each other hugs. They're out for drinks that night as a fan. You're like why are you doing that. Well politically speaking. It's sort of the same thing except in baseball. You understand okay. Well the players. You know it's still game. Politics is really not a game..

"So in the early two thousands during the administration of George W. Bush, the hydrogen economy got a lot of support, largely for that reason it would remove our dependence upon foreign oil. There are people who oppose the development of the hydrogen economy, not saying it was a bad idea, necessarily, but saying it's going to end up being too costly and not efficient enough to meet our needs, So it would at best be distracting, and it worse be completely wasteful and waste time and resource is that could be spent on different alternatives. And they may well have a point. It's really hard to say right now. But hydrogen is likely to be at least a component of alternate fuel and energy solutions. Moving forward. It could end up being ah, huge component if we get fusion to work, because fusion would rely upon isotopes of hydrogen And then you're talking enormous energy densities that Maura than dwarf the combustible fuels we're talking about. How big a part hydrogen is going to play as a fuel remains to be seen. They may require breakthroughs in both production and in how we put it to use and until we have a storage and transportation infrastructure built out to support this Will not be able to really rely upon it as extensively as we do fossil fuels. So can we produce enough hydrogen to meet our needs? I think the right answer now is not yet Or maybe the answer is That's just one part of the challenge, and we have to solve a whole lot of problems to make hydrogen practical. So let's not worry about too much. Let's try and solve these problems first. Now I do think it's worth pursuing. I think fuel cells are super cool. I know some people who love electric cars and that model and they're totally dismissive of fuel cells. But personally, I think both models can work. And besides, even if we don't get fuel cell vehicles rolled out on a wide scale, we may put hydrogen to use and many other places. That wraps up this episode. If you guys have.

"From the government you received eighteen thousand dollars from from the government so I understand why people feel so strongly about going back to work because they feel that the government isn't doing its job and taking care of people but in this instance two days before you went to court the money went into your account so I I'm I'm troubled by that yeah I can see why you would be troubled what happened was I already had the court date and I'd already had been open the entire time there was eighteen thousand dollars dropped in my bank account with no notice of what it was so I didn't know instructions I think it's one of the loans but I don't know how I'm supposed to spend it what I'm supposed to spend it on there's there's guidelines and regulations to that and you want to put myself in deeper debt by spending it the wrong way you know all and also having to close the salon so until I got further instruction on that I didn't want to spend it and giving me eighteen thousand dollars to spend when might stylists aren't actual employees of mine their actual they're actually sub leasing so I wasn't sure if I was even able to give them any of that money as employees because I don't pay them so that's that now I got a letter from someone who was surprised when I said that the term that's often used to describe Reagan's policies trump's policies George W. bush policies as trickle down that that was a term that was not a term that was conceived by any economist not a term that was conceived by any academician return that was conceived by somebody else history channel listen to this breaking solution was an economic plan that they came to be known by his supporters and critics alike.

"Locations at the same time and unlike storms or floods which strike in an instant and then recede a pandemic can continue spreading destruction and repeated waves that can last for a year or more so there you go that's George W. bush in his own words basically not just warning the country what warning the world what we could face and obviously back then he didn't think that we were prepared and there are a lot of things he wanted put in place to make sure that we were prepared for this type of pandemic so I asked the both of you and I asked to our callers why is it that Donald Trump holds no bearing no responsibility I'm not saying Obama doesn't hold any responsibility either by the way they both do quite frankly the question is let me just give out the number for the number to call what do you think do you do you are you hearing what George W. bush said do you think that Barack Obama and Donald Trump should bear some responsibility in this or are you okay with Donald Trump saying he takes no responsibility the number to call seven oh two two five seven five three nine six again that number to call if you wanna be a part of the conversation is two five seven five three nine six again it all depends on what Obama did in my opinion well how how to buy to react to it and beyond that I believe that the majority of the responsibility is on who and on China for misrepresenting the amount of cases as well as the fact it was transmissible human to human to that end of that they waited a month and a half to actually do that that's the but again it's all very well to the but one of the Obama administration do to prepare themselves for pandemic like George W. bush requested I thank you for that this has everything to do at this point with the trump administration and I'll tell you why okay it has nothing to do with Barack Obama or George Bush he's been in office for three and a half years did he not dismantle the entire coronavirus not providers but the inside Yemen Caesar pandemic team that he had I believe what two years ago do not dismantle that team so look I don't want to hear anything about Barack Obama I don't hear anything about George Bush I don't hear about the about Bill Clinton I don't hear anything about what Joe Biden was being you know it was a vice president for Barack Obama so he's on board with our put upon it did as far as infectious diseases this is everything and to do it from an American standpoint as Judy pointed out that Chinese and and yes obviously yes that's the fact is that China is at fault here as far as starting this but when it comes to the American response right and that's not all about the trump not you not just starting it but not allowing other countries to properly prepare for what's going to happen because of misinformation that that that they had a chance I mean Chris they knew as early December topic as December seventh that this was transmissible human human that they did not admit that's a until late January with a couple of days after that travel restrictions China were already in place from from trump listen I don't think anybody or any reasonable person is is blaming Donald Trump for the virus yeah K. nobody's blaming trump for the virus what we're doing I think what many people are doing are blaming trump for the response those are two completely different things I want to be clear on that all right we have a full board callers try to take as many as we can two five seven five three nine six let's start off with Carlos Carlos go you're next on the Vegas there was some Carlos Carlos can you hear us go ahead hello Carlos I think we lost Carlos seven oh two two five seven five three nine six let's go to Jim Jim you're next what's going on jump with a jump Hey I just want to repeat something that was so a little bit earlier that the corona viruses been around a little while and I don't want to get an argument but you know I bought some Clorox wipes back last summer models value packs from Costco and if you look at the the ingredients and if you look at the uses of the first word on there's coronavirus so listen bent around a lot more than just this year the odds of the issues that there there's been about there's there's been several other coronaviruses corona virus all it means is it is a virus or tonic fires that is transferred from animal to human this is just one of the variations of of a crowd of over nineteen has not been around for that long yes NO and I'll speak to what the doctor said I completely agree with JD this is a specific stranded the virus that we have never seen before simple as that seven oh two two five seven five three nine six is the number to call let's go to Jeff Jeff you're next what's up Jeff yeah can you hear me yes Sir go ahead Hey I just wanted to chime in here Brian you know you're always talking about you want with the ads for you on what the doctor Lama physician and ask before I went to medical school I also get a masters in public health which is all about and email you about the subject and all that stuff and you're always referring to doctor found yeah the quote unquote yes maybe maybe what you don't realize though is this this is not really a medical ID what's driving it is not medical information what everything working everything we're doing it wasn't okay everything we're doing policy wise is being driven by epidemiologic.
