Life, which was really gratifying here, and then we had sent a copy of the finished book to Woody Allen even though he had read the manuscript and gave us a great blurb obviously, he was entitled to A- complimentary copy of the finished book with photos in it, and that sort of thing, and he wrote me back and he said, thank you for the book I look forward to rereading it because it's so damn entertaining. You guys really aced this one and I thought wow, that's big. So That's some of what I've been up to. Assist incredible going back to what you said earlier lots of people.

O. C. Donald Trump not cove it killed all these people not hi there Sean Hannity and I'm not gonna but the president stopping the travel as early as did as he did that they were all criticizing as racist probably was the most significant thing to save lives the problem is because China was slow and telling it wasn't soon enough but make no mistake about it they weaponized and they and the weapon is pointed at somebody and that from AOC is clearly pointed at Donald Trump let's see if cut fourteen is any different quality environmental racism these are pre existing conditions and when you have a pandemic similar to what we saw with hurricane ready yeah when you have a natural disaster or an event like a pandemic hit communities that have already been ravaged by weekend healthcare systems weakened infrastructure the south Bronx is one of the highest childhood asthma rates in the country okay what do we know we know if you're fat we know if you're pre diabetic diabetic have smoked for a long period of time or elderly or with an immune deficiency are already pre existing heart and or lung condition this is deadly but for ninety eight percent it's not a pre existing deadly condition but again this is her weaponizing at her pointing the weapon at Donald Trump and the great Susan rice who has so much room to talk after Benghazi she even chimed in rather than moving immediately from very early January to do the things that they that we know we have to do get in place the testing capacity that the scale it up so that is widely available the surge the purchase and the distribution of personal protective equipment ventilators masks gloves gowns are and get back to our hospital systems built out of bed capacity Rick call back medical parolees things that states and locals are now doing on the fly these are the things that we know we needed to do and do at the outset and so they didn't do that they waited two months it's not the one month at the New York times headline you wasted money it was a wasted two months and those two months have meant the difference between many tens of thousands of Americans dying who who might otherwise not have died I will many tens of thousands have not even died yet so I don't know how she does her math but the bottom line is I think what you can hear whether its who's who who dusted her.

I may when I was with Good Morning America I covered legal things for them they sent me to New York City and I interviewed a lawyer for a mafia don and in Philadelphia named Carlos skews me Angelo Bruno and we we'd set up the the interview and then David Hartman and sandy hill where the hostess and way back when and they played the tape of that interview the next day and it was a huge success and they said to me we were really surprised that the lawyer would speak to me they were the mafi was trying to get into Atlantic city at the time so anyway the producer called me and said mark don't leave Philadelphia see if he'll talk to you again so I called the office I can't remember what his name was I called the office and this woman answered and I could tell there was a problem I said I'd like to talk to blank again see if he would you know if if we could interview him and I could tell it was a silence and then he was kind of crisis what's wrong and she said well I guess you don't know Mister Shaw he was in his car and the when he started it they blow him up this morning oh my gosh you can have a round with those guys you can't mess around with them they had their own and they still do have their own set of of of of of of of the way that they handle things when people don't cooperate they basically just kill them four main that's how they get whatever IDC I you know I will never forget that I was the last news guide to deal with Jimmy Hoffa before he disappeared may may of nineteen seventy five I was with ME disappeared in July you know then and I know what happened and you know what he was involved with the same players were involved in the Kennedy situation and you know what happens though is there's these distortions of history that I'm trying to correct and so on and so forth I do want to mention one thing because it's kind of a warning I came across this kind of by accident but I'm going to warn people about the sixth floor museum at at Dallas Texas in Daley plaza they put out advertisements and promotions and things saying it's an accurate a collection they have everything about the JFK assassination the building is changed history what happened there and all of this well I came to find out through the fact that I offer donations of Dorothy kill gallons research and the ruby trial transcripts they didn't want them why not and and I I couldn't understand it until I visited the museum when I was speaking there at the Allen public library it's a shrine to Lee Harvey Oswald my god go through their exhibit you won't see anything that's adverse to the Lee Harvey Oswald alone theory the exhibits there that summer three or four years old they talk about Jack ruby like he didn't even exist in their bookstore they do not stock any books that are adverse to the Oswald alone theory and the reason they do George is because the it and if if if the new information if the full story is told that museum won't be relevant anymore and I I went ahead and and put these warnings in my talk at the Allen public library and I've heard from people all over the world who have said guys you know we wondered what was wrong when we went through there as well and.

"Now today on the show visual defend our island whatever they got maybe we should fight on the beaches on the landing grounds the field and in the street fighting the hill will never surrender churchill the subject of countless plies movies drama series documentaries and biographies indeed believe it or not there have been a thousand Churchill Biographies One thousand the first biography was written in nineteen ninety five and the author of the latest one is our guest today now according to the prominent British columnist and historian Tom and heffer regular guest on this program this most recent Churchill biographies the best single volume imaginable of a man whose life would seem take impossible to get into a single volume the book is called Churchill Walking with destiny and the author is Andrew Roberts who's written other water declined books including a biography on Napoleon and the storm of war a new history of the Second World War Andrew Welcome to ABC Radio Thank you Tony took great on us now as I mentioned they've already been a thousand Churchill books published what's different about yours when I was very fortunate that there's been an enormous amount of sources that have come out over the last five years since I've been writing this book the Queen allows me to be the first Churchill biographer to use of his diaries and came due to sex mets church every Tuesday at the second mobile church who trusted him the great secret civil war and luckily rate down everything churchill say within forty one new sense of papers have been deposed to church college archives in the Cambridge University and other people like the servies investor time I even mice gate rations diaries basic become available giving those same in fact now on top of the dates and accounts of the war cabinet but I discovered six years ago allows me to have some they pretty much every page book it's never appeared in nature to focus okay well let's start with Churchill's upbringing can you tell us about Winston's parents briefly well he's talking to the upper cloth he was a charismatic successful Victorian politician he became chance of Exchan- so you never saw any of genius in Churchill and green to netted frankly they all the Stanford right to any sound full of contempt and to stay and his son Winston continue to love him and Martin and when his father died when Winston was twenty he raises who's focusing in Winston sorry randolph someone's name and he basically didn't allow it to to scream up whereas his mother also route took nations over to she was a great American future in society maybe something offense with the Prince of Wales Austrian about Saddam heels Okay and you went to school did he do you have did you have much luck at school I mean what sort of student was he he was a monster the student and he made himself out to be it's very rare for politicians to try and make themselves out to be thicker than they genuinely All I it should be in fact that being the dumbs 'cause he portrayed himself broke free my life he in fact was in the top third of all the classes ooh okay well let's turn to Churchill politics because he wasn't always a conservative he crossed the parliamentary floor in Nantes in four over the threat four government opposed to free trade in non white at thirty three he was the youngest cabinet member in forty years and then of course he was pretty significant figuring the British military from an early age this is of Relevance to Australians Andrew What do you wrote about his filings glibly in Nineteen fifteen well of course he was responsible for the idea of the of attacking the Straits of the dodgers novels and it was a brilliant idea to come off name one of the great strategic tunes of the of history of all Pfaff but as we all know say silently on the eighteenth of March nineteen fifteen Liane go six ships foods straits and then of course largely town to Him we double down and and landed all the way through fifteen and of course over the next eight months few one hundred forty seven thousand casualties suffered in the in the West Inside Straight so this was a drastic and terrible decision but one boots the real problem came in implementation well yeah okay now we went into politics to elect liberals rejoined the conservatives in the mid nineteen twenties what did he do that because the conservatives came back to the idea of free trade they it'd been the policy that let's say that's the party he joined the Nipples does the Conservatives dumps feature each and David intense you're often attributed with the quite quite I if a man is not a suspect I by the time he's twenty he has no heart if he's not a conservative by the time he's forty he has no brain churchill really say that I am and unfortunately there are lots of great lines like that but he didn't say he might have if you're going to keep going for example make the safest shape about about lady astor drinking coffee around any number of things keeping lucky men like Groucho Marx no power say funny things people with cheating too even if you didn't say those funny things it was talking about Winston Churchill with Andrew Roberts now Andrew your account numerous occasions when Churchill cheated death in your fi. He survived a school stabbing Cuban Bullets Boer Artillery German shells on the western front a near drowning replaying crushes three car accidents and a house fire Croaky and I'm actually very serious mainly at the age of eleven nomadic agent doctors administered brandy to the inevitable and which she wanted to be so you will send you make the point the church will develop the art of seeing virtually everything through the prism of history yeah it was the fact that he wasn't himself from historic congruent several extremely good he's a genius he was widely seen as Virginia wasn't he won the Nobel Prize for literature and actually he's unhappy about that because the price for peace that he was going to win communicants history who actually has been disappointed when he got the Nobel Prize which shop now we talk about a lot of people think of Churchill he's attitude towards the Nazis and Hitler and of course the British policy of appeasement toward Nazi Germany people forget this but in the late thirties it was actually popular with the British people tell us more about how Churchill riled against the spirit of the Times in the lightning thirties well he was only a final team is it's like jeeze you grew up with Jesus father did like the whole day with them they appreciated the service they it says humanity he was honest from quite an early age and saying he had an early warning system came during the Nazis that a lot of the other people in many wrench AC- rights didn't have also were so we mentioned earlier in being an historian he he sold the threat let's go to the European balance of power that we opposed and EDUC- seen fanaticism place in his life in a way that the other primary tonight people standing Naples we will never change and didn't say he was the first major predisposition of the decade the only major politician to not only warn against Hitler Nazis but also talk with an idea about what do I e rearming especially in the air the by the way you know you obviously know John Howard our second longest serving prime minister did you know that he's middle name is Winston it was named by his parents in mid Naughty thirty nine? When as we've discussed Winston Churchill was anything but the flavor of the month he was seen as yesterday's man rod that shows John's parents and Great must be full size. This is searching tremendously impressive actually I didn't know that's in Ann Arbor got I think yeah well during the war Churchill husband and relations with the United States which meant that America applied an important role in helping Britain defeat awesome but what about the altar pace conference towards the end of World War Two was not Churchill's finest hour why well because they back large number of famine of Yugoslavs to to get to Marshal Tito too because he he basically killed them and a hand backlog Germans and ethnic Germans who an ethnic Russians as well actually Cossacks to stone promptly murdered them as well so as far as the share sort of real politique day was concerned they had to believe result in general had to believe starlings were vulne- that he was going to get to respect the integrity and independence another eastern European countries but unfortunately Adelson those deals went shot which net new Mexico's yeah false assurances by S- talented the free elections would be held in eastern Europe but I mean you bit hot on Churchill because many historians would decide that the dying FDI he essentially stitched Churchill up I didn't believe that case I've been I've found myself we H mccown superbowl cabinet Churchill held on return from Yalta in which very much that he thought he could business was done in the deeper deep stalling the only alternative to trust on of course he was for that much thin walls and it's very other fueled fairness of course because in a million Russian soldiers variant at the time he was also at Folsom Missouri in March Ninety six When you made the Great Iron Kerr in speech the first major Western politician to warn against started was doing in eastern Europe

And you said that, that she was one of the women that would not put up with Groucho insults. And she was and least in my lifetime was no one woman that he respected and dearly loved, he, he really loved, I think partly because he knew how good she was for his brother route. You would say interviews that Harpo look good qualities that the mocked for this mother many had were in Harpo. He inherited all of her. Good qualities. Well, I would like to kick the bucket knowing that I had no enemies. That's really basically my, my hope and belief that I'm, I'm gonna work on that. I because dad died without an enemy. It's not a very easy thing to do. And I'm trying to emulate him very poorly. I might add. Let's nice Bill. There's a great line in your book.

Donny Marie used to have a syndicated talk show back in the day an afternoon in my crazy Donnie Google that if she hadn't talk show a solo show. Yes. I'm not sure about that. But Donny and Marie. I remember because I was a little, but they had a talk show nineteen ninety thousand because I remember 'cause they used to come home and watch the after school. It was like a three thirty show. Maybe that's what I'm thinking of Holly Marie the debuted on October first two thousand twelve and it only lasted until July twenty thirteen it was on the home. It was on the hallmark. And it just wasn't produced. It wasn't. It wasn't the, but she fits in the table of women because she's going to be able to keep the conversation going, and she will have stories. Kashirin Osborne has some great stories. Yes. Marie osmond. To scoop down over a little bit here in Osborne because Marie? Yes. She's got some stories. Yeah.

Right. And they were discussing that particular line. And by the way, each of these individuals has a very strong opinion on the mullahs report. Yeah. What's truly frightening? How the stunning ignorance with the constitution has bred contempt. If put to vote today only half of those surveyed said they would vote to adopt. The constitution. Wow. Yeah. Right. Wow. Even fewer believed that congress should follow the constitution. Well, I mean there haven't nobody cares. It is not part of it. If you're an activist. You only what want what you want? That's that's the end of it. I mean, there's no other way. All the way to put it. I need to get what's mine. And this is why journalism doesn't matter. This is why the law doesn't matter. This is why the process doesn't matter and won't be respected until that mindset changes. Why respect the process if you don't respect the constitution of your even know it, then if you believe it doesn't matter at all. The process doesn't matter. There you have the capital situation anything else. Well, do you have the current situation with well the last two years? Well, we've said it we said it before and and in all seriousness. I mean, if when you have the majority of said, a third of Americans could name a single, right? I've seen other polls a majority cannot. But whatever you have a significant number of Americans can't tell you a single right in the first amendment. We know that the left doesn't believe in freedom of speech for all just for some which means I don't believe in freedom of speech. They don't believe in freedom of religion. They don't believe in the second amendment. They don't believe in in in due process under the law. They don't understand the three branches of government, which means they don't understand about the the the separation of powers, which means they don't understand about your social activism, and why it was a wrong. They don't believe as we saw in cavenaugh. And we're seeing now. State your seen it. Now. You're seeing it yesterday. You know, the whole concept of a presumption of of of Venison's you and I had the discussion about Muller not doing his job. Most people don't most people in this country, art listeners to but most people in this country don't understand how wrong that is what he did by not doing his job and setting the premise that. Well, we decided not to follow our prosecutor normal prosecutorial standards here. Why not that's your only job? That's why you were put into do what you were doing right now. That's part of the law. You're supposed to be doing this. And you just said I don't feel like doing this. I'm going to become a writer, or I'm going to be somebody who keeps a narrative going in this country because of whatever reason I can't tell you what reason he decided not to do his job because he didn't state why he wouldn't do his reason why he wouldn't fill his responsibility. It didn't say right now, we can imagine that he knew what it would cause he knew that. Okay. As soon as bar. Did it would cause this whole thing that well? It's just the the president exonerating himself, which isn't the case at all. They use terms that have nothing to do with with a prosecutor's job exoneration. That's not a legal term. Prosecutor's job is to do one thing. And that is to look at a case and decide whether the evidence exists to file charges are not not to give their opinion on the full innocence or guilt of a person. It's do you have the evidence to charge. Any would do that? Why not because he didn't have the evidence. Legally the case is closed for everybody who was objecting that today, including a listener a couple of e-mailers. Well, it's just what you're saying..

A Tale Of Two Dollar Stores

A Tale Of Two Dollar Stores

"You would go into a store, and there would be a bunch of stuff in there that would only cost a dollar and during the great recession this meant a lot to people customers poured into dollar stores in two thousand nine Dollar General already had nearly six thousand stores today. It has about fifteen thousand stores Family Dollar was a bit smaller had roughly six thousand stores in two thousand nine now it has almost nine thousand and both stores were basically going after the same customers that WalMart targets. But these stores could go where WalMart's couldn't like in cities, for instance, New York, there is a Dollar General and Family Dollar both pretty close to where I live in Brooklyn. They also went really hard into small rural areas where the population was not big enough to support a whole WalMart superstore lake that three hours outside of Saint Louis drive down. There we go through this little town, and it's got like twelve hundred people to Family Dollar Dollar General and a little low. Grocery store. I mean, the nearest WalMart's like thirty five to forty minutes away. This is Brian Yarbrough. He's a consumer analyst at Edward Jones. When the economy slows down, they actually perform a little better because you'll see people trade down. So people will go into some of the higher price grocery stores and places, and they'll trade down into the dollar store environment. So in the teeth of the recession Family Dollar Dollar General. We're just having their moment the bad times for the economy or the good times for dollar stores. But when the recession ended, and the recovery started these stores made very different bets on how to survive during the recovery, and you can see the difference in these shopping bags that I brought back from both stores. So I up Dollar General Dollar General decided we are gonna go hard after the mini WalMart thing. They basically became a grocery store, and this makes sense, right? Because in good times and bad people always need the basics, groceries pet food detergent and dollar generals. Like, we are going to be the place where people can get cheap basics. So you can see. In here basics. Yeah. Got a got a carton of milk. Sure. Dollar General basically went hard after the grocery segment of the market. So buying Yarbrough says mall. It's convenient way home though. I need some milk or anything bread. You can be in and out in you know, two or three minutes versus, you know, go to a WalMart supercenter, and it could be a fifteen or twenty minute ordeal. That's journey. Exactly. So I went to the Dollar General store near me, and I could see all this right away. It was really nice. It was super clean and well organized, right? When I walked in. There was this big fancy. Starbucks display. They're selling some new kind of canned Espresso got you. Again. You know me. So well, that's exciting. And I got you a red bull. Just in case in case. And they had all the name brands like everything you might have on your grocery list. Chips. Ahoy the peeps. Of course. It'd be easy heaps. It's like a whole variety of things. Some of this stuff is like a treat at love it. All right. Exactly. So I spent about thirty dollars on all this stuff. You know? So the prices are good, but not super super-low, but it was very easy to navigate. It was really pleasant shopping experience that shiny yellow cards everything was organized, and then I wanna few blocks away to Family Dollar, so Family Dollar two very different tack. They went really hard on the dollar part. So after all there's a promise in the name of a dollar store. Right. And they kept this promise. But in order to keep things price low. You can't really have regular groceries. Right. You can't live like eight kinds of chips ahoy, and you know, Starbucks displays and things like that diversity, right? Like if you're enforcing the price. You're not going to be able to get everything you want for that same price and in order to keep. Prices that that low you end up having to kind of get a bunch of weird stuff. Right. Like, a hodgepodge lot of food and weird small packages very excited about this. There's this Honey nut Cheerios. That's like I like cutting Cheerios, but it's like yours. To servings or something it's like a packet bills. Have a lot of off brand stuff. Like, there's this energy drink red bull. I've got here a drink called rip it energy with a picture of a soldier holding a flag a gun in the colors of the American flag. This is like super patriotic energy, Drake. And you know, it takes the edge off of a heart afternoon card marshmallow offering marshmallows. Yeah. You also end up with this kind of grab bag of stuff that's made in India and China kind of whatever fell off the truck that week a little bit more candy holiday decorations seasonal type items galaxy allow that comes from China a lot of its discretionary nature driving people with these great deals. I mean Family Dollar brings in whatever. It can Mark down. The selection is more random. So like here is an Easter banner for you. I got to a paper crown check it out. This is my favorite purchase a skittles flavored candle handle, I know eight for my gift from me to you for your house when a glow sword. Okay, close. Yeah. I know. Yeah. We're gonna have to wear those around the office knows glasses a package of six gradu- marks knows last night with the mustache and everything six of them for a dollar. So in order to keep their prices, low Family Dollar did not invest in fancy stores the way the Dollar General did they kept overhead low, and you know, the stores as a result are a little hard to navigate I spent like three times longer in the Family Dollar store into the lots of poking around. And and honestly the experience of being in the store was a little bit unpleasant. Like, right when you walk in. This automated voice told you you were being monitored. I mean, all the stuff was just a dollar. So the deals were actually really amazing. I kinda couldn't believe all the stuff I could get for dollar so Cardiff who dollar stores to business models one chain bet on the dollar one chain bet against the dollar, which one do you think is still thriving? I'm gonna guess Dollar General. You are right. Okay. Dollar General has been killing it brought in customers with higher. Income during the downturn. And some of those customers are still customers today. They didn't leave them Dollar General has grown every single quarter. For nearly a decade. Brian Yarbrough said going upscale ish kind of paid off people like shopping there, and they like the deals so even when times got better and people could maybe afford to shop in a more expensive store. They didn't they kept shopping Dollar General because they liked it. And also because Dollar General is a big chain. They're able to get lower prices for a lot of the name brand stuff. They carry an offer better deals than like local grocery stores in rural areas or corner stores in cities Family Dollar on the other hand did not fare. So well as the economy improved people are willing to spend a little bit more on things like holiday decorations, and candy, and cutlery, and pens and skittles candles, and they wanted a more pleasant shopping experience and Family Dollar kind of went sideways again, I think when dollars was investing opening new stores updating and remodeling stores and family. Which is kind of plotting the loan. You know, I think Dollar General took a lot of market share and took a lot of customers. Now, I think, you know, Family Dollar struggling to gain those back Stanley dollar was bought out years back, and it just announced that it is going to close nearly four hundred locations totally rethink its business model, it'll probably also start to leave the dollar part behind things are probably gonna get more expensive there, which makes me a little bit sad because you know, where else are you gonna find like six Groucho Marx glasses for a dollar on the other hand if the economy goes into recession again, then maybe their fortunes will switch yet. They could be singing a happy. Tune with one dog. Purple plastic recorder that
