Malek in search of someone they think is a serial killer in nineteen ninety los angeles and this guy that they focused on is played by my guest today. jared leto. Who usually gives them a run for their money in terms of letting them twist in the wind deciding whether his character is guilty is he. A serial killer is he not. I've got to tell you jared that this is one of my favorite performances of yours. It's it's like a co lassic kind of movie villain that we don't know if he's guilty of what he's accused of but we know is guilty of something definite strange character but he has humor is playful. He's all those things that make you remember character. So did you feel when you first read the script. No i said what is this. I don't wanna do this. I is was actually buy those my response. I thought you know. Maybe i should explore different territory. You know. I played a kind of than the darker side of the moon. A bit and You know. I thought maybe this wasn't the right thing to do And then after talking to john lee. Hancock and i realized that there there could be an opportunity. Here's he seemed really open. I said if we're going to do this together. I'd like to to to kind of use it as an exercise in transformation to to really try to sculpt this this this wild man albert's pharma Into something quite unlike anything. I'd done before so he seemed really game And the prospect to working with denzel washington one of my heroes and then rami malek in the mix. It was just couldn't say no. And what i love about you. Working with them is that yes albert. Your character trump really tries to drive the both of them crazy and with a kind of zen deadpan. That you have yourself you know. There's i don't want to say there's a little of you albert but there's there's some of it in. Yeah sure i've been. You know you you take parts of yourself. Other people Experiences that you've had and you kinda just build this collage you know i it with. Albert's parma was head to toe from the walk to the voice. I had different color is different knows different teeth. I had some other prosthetics different way of carrying myself and it was quite exciting to put this guy to life and to really take risk and push things right up to the edge And hopefully not crossover into absurdity But yeah he is a bit An un unwittingly unknowingly zinn. He is the voice of like maybe a soothing yoga teacher or something does. There's one i don't want to spoil any platt detests. But there's one point where they both taking you to the police station in la. It's an interrogation room and the phone rings and albert says is that for me. You know quite a quite innocent with it. It's that kind of thing that he's open to sort of any moment until he's ready to spring with something that will make denzel crazy. Sic chrissy i. there's nothing more fun than you know. antagonizing the other characters in the film and for spar he knew he uses that as a tool a likes to keep people off balance off center and humor is one of the ways that he does it and it was quite fun to show on saddened to bring all kinds of different Ideas for ad libs and improv and John lee hancock was amazing. Because you know he was the writer as well but incredibly generous with the opportunity to improvise ad-lib and he really just let me go to town. Would you haven't worked with denzel rami before right. No no no. I had an an. I didn't know them Either and i mean what was kind of fun as well as that didn't do any rehearsal like for the interrogation senior talking about that was the first scene with all three of us and the first big seen it was quite intense and intimidating Exciting there was a lot of pressure and it was explosive on sad. It was it was there. Were fireworks going off. It was really exciting to get in the ring with those guys. Everyone came prepared. I think we all knew there was an opportunity there and we all took advantage of it. Well you know all you have oscars so now. Nobody can ask you to do anything. You don't wanna do right. You just hold that thing up. You can take it with you that day. You want you could certainly a casa damage with it It is a you know. Denzel washington said the other day.

Katz Kiely Talks about how frontline.live helps the NHS with PPE and why they have open sourced the platform.

"Can you tell everyone is listening. Walk is frontline live and then how you first came about forming it. 'cause you did an amazing campaign and support early in the lockdown so what frontline live is an online live data mac which means that any healthcare worker here is on the front line who finds themselves short at ppe. And therefore is at risk of getting ill can either tweet a request using hashtags hashtag frontline map. Hashtag the postcode so we can make sure they're actually at a healthcare organization not just collecting. Ppe reason and then hashtag what it is they need or they can fill in an online form of frontline dot live and we will then do two things one of them. Put a dot opin on a digital map so that people can see with the need is but also now because of a new partnership two other organizations the healthcare workers association and met share supply drive. It means that we basically have a warehouse of free. Pp which all partners of what rated long and hard for by raising money and getting donations. And because of a partnership with hermes it means that as soon as somebody on the frontline requests vp. Because they're shows of it we can get free p. p. to them within forty eight hours. How did all of this started happening. I moved back to my house in sheffield so in lockdown home alone on zoom call with a friend of mine who is a senior us. I'm saying i can't get a delivery. I'm gonna have to go to the supermarket and she said okay. I can do one better than that. I'm going into the hospital tomorrow. We don't have any masks of probably be dealing with people with covert line flown. Can you imagine that feeling so then. Of course i became a little bit hyper aware of this particular problem. And because everyone on every social media channel that doctors nurses health care workers saying we have p p that's bound on the other side there's this incredible uprising of entrepreneurs who assisting forward money three d. printing visors. That's companies like brutal and burberry. And i'm barbara who've pivot their entire system that can make pp to give away so we've got people desperately in need and scud going without pp's any of us would put up with and people are trying to solve the problem but they couldn't see very other were and so then. I hear on the news one day. Burberry making scrubs. There's an nhs trust because they didn't have to contact burberry have had to go through some ministers in the government to ask them how they conduct bribery. Oh for goodness sake. This is ridiculous. Because i'm all about technical innovation so i thought it can't be that hard surely to find a way of making it easy for people on the front line to say i haven't got this so that people who've got supply can get it and quickly. Yeah that was my beginning and a guy who used to work with who used intel is at ucla now on run did to him. About how hard would it be for us to be able to collect data and put it live on a map so that people can see what's going on and we chatted for awhile for about an hour and then i didn't hear anything back from him midnight that night i get any email. He's already got his team on it. I'm like oh so then fast. Forward six weeks. I've had about fuzi. Volunteers who've sat forward the most incredible people people who well known in the industry. People go better things to do with their times. they busy. Who sat for just getting this. Were absolutely and we're going to make this happen so six weeks later. We launched the service in the first three month period. When all of this stuff you're talking about how they've got. The timelines has stepped forward giving his full page. Spreads is giving us full page. Adverts ocean outdoor gives us sixty with the biggest digital out of home screens across the country. So we can put stuff out there. Not one penny changes hands. A snapchat talked to the general manager. he goes. Yeah wherever we can do to help. We'll do a national campaign. you give gives your assets. We'll sort out view. I have never in my career. Repos talk about purpose and actually fears purpose. You will look forward to enjoy getting out of bed in the morning. But i've never seen anything like this in my life. The sad side of that is that the nhs in my humble opinion and i we were talking about this before. It's the jewel in our crown. It's something that we should be quite rightfully proud of. And then by an example we partnered with united health who have about one hundred thousand frontline. Health co worker members talking to them. And i'm saying i keep hearing stories from people on the front line that actually the idea of people tweeting their requests is really difficult because nobody does speak cow and people are being told not to use the service from my mouth. It being told not to use it. Yeah people are being told if they speak out about the fact that appea- shortages they will lose their jobs. Assist crazy if you can't do your job one wi fi. Find another way to do it. That's most entrepreneurs will okay. I can't go x. y. And found a way round it exactly and the system should be set up in a way. This is about somebody complaining about something. It's if you don't have you're putting your life at risk. Six hundred forty doctors nurses have died. Because there isn't enough got enough. So basically i'm finding out it's absolutely known as endemic that people inside the nhs all tolls not speak up about things and told they will lose their jobs so we moved it from just twitter to having a fool where people could Report anonymously if they were too scared to speak out off the fifteen hundred. Ish request for p. P. i reckon about eighty percents of them were done anonymously by people who was scared to speak out and some of the comments they left on those forms. Joss person frankly interesting. We've been up from. You has improved or got worse vitton. What's your gut fail. It's been interesting because there was a point where there was a story or other media about the fact that management we're turning healthcare workers to be quiet and then matt hancock said in the commons. This is not true. people will be protected. It's definitely from my perspective. People are less likely to speak out and obviously we had a bit of downtime where we registered frontline is a charity because there weren't as many cases and he gave his time to consolidate and build townships so we decided in september. Do a to find out whether or not people in healthcare organizations feel confident. They're going to have enough p. p. to see them through over this next crazy time which is become crazier guess. How many percent said they felt fully confident. They'd get enough. P p twenty eight. Wow wow wow wow that super-low eight percent of frontline healthcare workers believe they will get enough to keep them safe during this time that scary as a number. That's scary.

The Little Things Movie Review

"Okay one less title. That's out this week. This went on in theaters and on. Hbo max i believe It's the little things which is a detective thriller. It is both set in the early nineties and feels a little bit like a time. Capsule from early nineties It starts in washington with rami. Malik and jared leto. Three best actor oscar winners. That's kind of a rare sight There it. I enjoyed the throwback quality of it while also thinking it was yet another of the stone cold boomers. We're talking about this week Richard i think you might have enjoyed it. Listen i did even. I didn't like it at all. I really wanted it to be something specific that of that was written in the early nineties. Steven spielberg directed. Imagine so strange are and then. I think clint eastwood was looking at it and deigned veto and finally john lee hancock wrote it decided to make himself twenty seven years later. I wanted it to be kind of one of those nineties. Post silence of the lambs. Serial killer studio thrillers. You know a little grimy kind of silly but like engaging good detective work kind of stuff and it has those trappings but at the center is kind of a weird void at the center. I think it's kind of trying to be about something bigger and fails at that. And so everything else kind of doesn't get its proper do denzel washington's always good rummy. Malik is fine. Jared leto. People people's tolerance level of him certainly varies. And he's really doing a thing you know and i found it engaging for like the first scene and then i was like okay i get it. I don't even more so for me. It was just like it had all these interesting component parts. But the whole didn't really didn't do it for me.

There is something piquant about britain entering the last week of its transition period reliance on a reverse of the berlin airlift. The uk's present difficulties due to a new and highly infectious variant of covid nineteen heavily concentrated in london and the southeast on joined with more by monaco. Twenty fours health and science correspondent dr. Chris chris this or something like to be expected because all viruses mutate. Don't they indeed covid nineteen already has once or twice at least before andrew say actually the uk's victim of its own success in this because we do as jones san accurately said have a world class in fact one of the best in the world screening systems set up to detect precisely this sort of thing. It's called coke. Uk their job is to scrutinize genomes of corona viruses collected from patients who are diagnosed with the disease so far. They've looked through the genetic codes of more than one hundred and sixty thousand viral sequences. They're all being to find things precisely like this and of course then we. We say we found one this and then the whole world says we don't want you of course they don't want us all the all the virus but not surprisingly just to cautionary stage but yes It it's likely that this sort of thing is a bit of an inevitability and it may well be it's farther afield. Things like farther afield than anyone knows yet because they just haven't detected e. Yeah so what do we know about this mutation will. It's not a single mutation. It's a variant the calling it variant because rather than just a mutant which is one genetic change. This one's actually got a constellation of genetic changes there are seventeen independent genetic differences in this new variant that seems to confer opponent the ability to spread a bit better and they're peppered throughout the genetic code of the virus they affect v aspects of how the virus works but there's a big cluster of these changes all centered on what's called the essel spike protein. Which is the key part of the virus. That's all of these out coats that it uses to infect ourselves and so this is why researchers think that it may be more transmissible. Something has changed in the way the virus behaves in terms of its its ability to engage with our cells its ability to penetrate and jack cells and then cause disease and then spread to another person We don't know exactly how it's doing that yet. And we don't know for sure that it really is more transmissible but based on the numbers that we're seeing the the epidemiology the pattern of spread. It seems like a likely reasonable supposition. Is it possible that this variation is a response to the measures that we have undertaken to defeat it is is the virus adapting to survive ovar adapt to survive. And that's really what charles darwin point out. And that was his big breakthrough his grand unified theory of biology. If you like that everything responds in a dynamic way. All the time to pressure applied from its environment and where we think. This may have arisen. This new variant is actually in the blood of an individual or individuals with poorly functioning immune systems because individuals. Who don't have a good immune response to the virus. Tend to hang onto the virus fa- longer. They have a chronic infection with the virus. And this means that as their immune system limps along trying to control it the virus is getting a chance to see inner workings of the immune response and it can see where the chinks in our alma and therefore it can adapt and shift in that direction a bid to take advantage of those changes to cling onto survival in that person. Now if that person then transmits a virus which has adapted in this way it's basically passing on a more weaponized or more tooled up version of the virus. The reason that such as a putting forward this hypothesis is because when we have treated patients and documented what happens in them when they have an impaired immune system for various reasons. Were genetic reasons. There are also acquired reasons why people's immune systems might not work very. Well they've seen very similar changes happening in the viruses in those people to this variant that circulating suggesting that it may will be homegrown as it were and borne out of the fact that some people can't can't fight it off as well as efficiently giving the varsity insight into how our immune system works and enabling it to adapt accordingly. I mean we have talked before about the fact that it's not in the interests of viruses whose only interest eads the perpetuation replication. It's not necessarily in the interest of any virus. To kill its hosts. Is it possible that viruses variation to become more transmissible but perhaps less deadly. Well we don't know at the moment and That's one of the key questions that people are going to want to be asking. It's a relatively new discovery first appeared as a blip on the radar of kochi uk. The consortium that founded back in september and the cases them were just a few and far between become a lot more common sense obviously rising to one in four cases in november perhaps as many as sixty percent of cases in december in some parts of the country that means that we've now got the chance to see firsthand in greater detail in greater numbers. What is impact on people is and so people will be asking this very question this thing if it does transmit more efficiently which it appears it does does it as we believe not cause such severe disease or cause any more severe disease than the standard parent from which its rose the moment it doesn't look like it translates into getting more severe disease. It doesn't look like it's currently beyond the reach of the protection conferred by the immune response In response to the vaccine but we don't know that crucial question has it surrendered some of its violence. In order to optimize. In this way time will tell you partially answered what. I'm sure is now the key question because the the glimmer of optimism in which we have all been basking these last few weeks is the approval and roll out of the vaccine. Several hundred thousand people here in the uk have already received at least the first injection. Is it possible that nineteen could mutate or very this quickly Out of the reach of the vaccine. Matt hancock rishaad everybody when he made the announcement last week about the discovery of this new variant. That it didn't look like it would be able to sidestep the immune response conferred by the vaccine the experiments to prove that that is the case. Though are still ongoing. Thankfully they're very easy experiments to do. And that's what porton down will currently be investigating. And i would hope that they will provide that reassurance. Quite soon the way you go about this is you. Grow the virus in the lab and that's actually very easy to do and you add to it samples of the antibodies that a person makes when they're vaccinated and if the antibodies still work against the variant. And you do this with samples across the country. Then you can say these neutralize this virus even though it's the variant and therefore these people will be protected if they have the vaccine. So that's that's kind of what we're waiting for now to to see that data. It's very easy the experiments to go to do them properly though. That will give us reassurance to answer that question what the future holds. Though we don't know and that's why some researches saying this could be a stepping stone on the part of the virus towards a more comprehensive ability to sidestep our immune response including the response to the vaccine and for that. It's a sort of shot across out immunological bowels. We have to keep it onto surveillance. Keep searchlight trained upon it so that we can see where it's moving anticipate is next. Move and try to head off

"Nfl. Commissioner roger goodell may laughing stock of the denver broncos okay. There's plenty of blame to go around. I understand that With that hill faded sham of a game on sunday. Thirty one to three is at. The denver broncos ever had a chance begging the question. Why wasn't that game postponed so many other. Nf l. games have been given the fact that well. Let's just say the broncos we're kinda short very key critical position that of quarterback and to me that question if you can nine seven zero three five three thirteen ten. Drop me a text on our thirteen ten. Kfi am text line at three one nine nine six via text this morning. John says i watched that game to halftime and then watch can't do cartoons with the grandkids. No difference i understand very tongue in cheek and your reaction to this game but unfortunately jonah can't understand for the life of me why goodell thought it was good for the nfl brand to make a mockery to make fools. And i'm not calling them. Fools to make the denver broncos look bad when they didn't have any chance whatsoever of even not even a fighting chance of making some sort of stand in this game against the things. John goes on to say relative to mayor. Hancock mr yay for me. Nay for the whatever happened. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Right john says hancock has become a great example of a political power induced delusions of grandeur now in that point john. I couldn't agree with you more. And you tell me though as we try to link these stories together and maybe it's a stretch but when it comes to leadership both near and far and you see the hypocrisy as those with a delusions of grandeur are choosing winners and losers. Not only around the state but indeed around the country. Is there any question as to why they're mandates when it comes to their edicts when it comes to covert and all the guidelines and all the restrictions are being met with a bit of. Well i'm not going to necessarily say resistance but how about skepticism skepticism. Why well could it be not to lapse into cliche here but could it be that actions speak louder than words and if you're looking for leadership again it might seem like a stretch. I think kendall hinton has shown more leadership than have many of our leaders when it comes to stepping up in a time of crisis..

"All goes with the territory and if you're if you're an open minded person you take criticism for for what it is somebody who cares and has an opinion and we're also lucky you and i are both lucky. We're in a world where people care about what we have to say But we're meeting in person. One thing about meeting in person is we're we're asking our players and coaches to go play in person so i sorta make sense that. How can we ask them to go. Play and not ask the committee to meet in person. the these on the committee regularly go to their team's games and and then may travel for other purposes. So we we. We understand that the people would would. Some people have different opinions. But if you think about it the most robust conversation that any of us ever have to face. And i know that you do it on radio. Tv but the the best conversation is face to face. and if you think about the zoom opportunity are meeting runs. What seven to eight hours on monday afternoon. An additional three or four or five hours on tuesday and is anyone who's been on zoom call knows zoom. Were fine for an hour to but it's not bright productive for eight ten twelve hour meeting so and with our committees very serious about its work and they know how important it is to get things right bill. I certainly understand the final meeting in person. But there's not that much that's going to be determined week one is there. I get asked that fairly often. It's another fair question and the answer. is the committee. Learn so much about every team and there is so much know about everything that these these four meetings before selection weekend ahead to their base of knowledge and i just don't think it people would would appreciate it if we just dropped out of out of the sky on selection weekend and said here are the rankings. I just don't think that would is this what we need to do. Well listen. I'm going to read you all the criticism because you can read it for yourself and i'm not going to debate because i don't really know the answer you're right. We are very active society especially in this sport and clearly these people take it seriously. How was it determination. Made if i may ask to meet in person yes. The selection committee decided. They're eager to come together. I i know that they know how that goes in. Really if you have if you haven't been in the room you really can't understand the nature of the back and forth and the pointed conversation. And i can just picture on zoom Somebody you know talking over the other person like we all do or kind of waving their hand to to get recognized and it's just better in person. Yeah no. I have never been in that room i can assure you. I've i've tried to find out what happened in those rooms and i've never been in one build. I know that these questions sometimes seem repetitive. But as we turned the corner and this is now what we all love and and appreciate. What has this experience been like for you. Because i mentioned that because i know i read that you had to deal with cova. Like so many coaches have. We've had to head coaches on already today and one yesterday who of all had to quarantine you've been through it yourself so you you're certainly qualified to understand better than some of us who fortunately have not been through it. When it's like let me tell you all you don't want it I was lucky. My was pretty mild. I never missed any work. We were working remotely at the time and i. I never missed any work. Although in the afternoon. I'll get tired. And i will say this. I still do not have my sense of smell or taste. It's so bad that my wife gave me some beats for two weeks ago. Beats which. I do not like that the cause but i couldn't taste. Well lucky you. You don't want the. But on the other hand i can't taste a rude float so but but i'm confident that we'll come back into all of the symptoms that i could have. Those are the two most minor. I i'm happy to have those instead of some of the other really really horrible things that people have gone through when you when you hear the news that i just broke with in with a seventeen games this weekend the most we've had fifteen last. It's a it's a constant issue and everyone knew what we were getting into and and everyone is dealing with it. I'm just. I'm curious. I mean i. Frankly think it's worth it i. I'm sure you do but there are critics who especially with college athletics. Don't understand what we're dealing with here. I wish i'd like to give you an opportunity to to maybe answer some of those who who don't quite understand what Passionate fans that are part of this program and the passionate people that you'll be together with a couple of days and what this is all about. People love their college football The players wanted to play coaches wanted to coach My daughter-in-law's is a college. Soccer coach in her players wanted to play. They were like desperate to play and they were able to play their sees. And i i don't believe too strong in. Will the country needs this but there is an element of that. I will also say that. Even though i wasn't involving decision to play on my focus is on the postseason of course but i was delighted to see when when when we were able to play and every cancellation is a punch in the gut for me. because i love saturdays and low college football and i feel and i feel so bad for the players when they have to learn that they can't play. It's a punch in the gut for. we're all just. Everybody is doing their best in trying to get through this and reading the happy news about vaccines for the first or second quarter of next next year that i just have to repeat everybody's trying so hard to make this happen. We build. thank you as always for coming on. We get a lot out of it and We appreciate you making time. I know it's a particularly busy time of the year. Few hope you'll come back. Thank you all. Take care of good to talk to you. Thank you bill. Hancock the executive director of the gop on their protocol for next week can with the end of the season.

"Friends. Okay. Who We got a good one today, this is a really interesting today joining us well, one person in person one person via skype first time ever. My great friend the powerful Graham, Hancock is joining us via skype from England and he wrote the foreword for this. Man Brian Moore rescues book, which is absolutely fantastic. This was an amazing conversation. The book is called the immortality key, the secret history of the religion with no name, and it is all about the use of psychedelics in ancient civilizations and with new information. That Brian has been working on for over the past twelve years to create this book and he's a legit scholar. I, mean, this is in fact, he's never even had personal psychedelic experiences. This is all just based on on history on research and it was just an absolutely amazing conversation that I enjoyed every second of. So please welcome Graham Hancock and Brian Moore. Rescue. The Joe Rogan experience. PODCAST. Minded. Joining us by skype is the great and powerful Graham Hancock my friend are you sir? I Joe it's really good to be back with you I. Wish I could be there in person. Feels very strange to be on this this technology but these are the times we live in. Yeah. Well, I'm just happy we could talk at all in this. It's the little things like little victories and Brian try it. I'M GONNA TRY IT Maura Rescue. You nailed broke. Thank you and your this is the first time. We've ever done one of these as well in the studio where one maybe ever visual we've never done what we did one with you guys remember we did Randall Carlson and. Mocked. Came by telephone. Yes. Would which is very strange like sound coming from nowhere you but we've never done one of these like this this book. Tell me this is. The immortality key the secret of the secret history of religion of the religion with no name, I'll say it again the secret history of the religious name. Now. This is obviously when I found out. The subject matter grandma's is your alley and. It made total complete sense why you and Brian worked together on this. So who wants to start in explain? What do we have you start since you`re You're over there in the UK. Yeah absolutely well I mean for me in fact Joe I think you and I originally got in touch of my interest in psychedelics in human culture and book that I published in two thousand and six called Supernatural Yeah which which looks at the huge role that psychedelics have played in cultures and religions. All around the world and I touched in that book on the role of psychedelics in the origins of Christianity. Which of course is a dynamite subject. And what Brian has done in the mortality key has been to present hard and fast evidence that the first Christians were using psychedelics and the their religious experiences where mediated by psychedelic experiences and Brian, how did you get involved in this too long story live donor by the way I've. Done a few mushrooms in his day. Oddly, enough I don't do drugs and I've I've never done psychedelics. Wow. Yeah. That's crazy. Yeah we want to start. Today, well wish we're in La up. Texas. The laws are sketchy. You're here. What what led you do this? Then I was fascinated by Graham's work. which I only came across about twelve years ago. I was a Latin Greek and Sanskrit. UNDERGRAD major and instead of getting the PhD or becoming a priest which the two options when you study Latin and Greek, I went to law school instead for no reason whatsoever, and then wound up at a law firm and a couple years into it started reading about these suicide and studies coming out of Hopkins and Nyu. Amazing statistic that two. Thirds of the participants were describing it as one of the most amazing experiences of their lives and it hit me that there was something there because the testimony coming out of Hopkins and Nyu in a very clinical setting immediately reminded me of what I heard about a loose and for those who don't know what a is it's essentially the spiritual capital of. The ancient world it was where the best and brightest of Athens and Rome went to essentially meet a goddess in the flesh and have this mind blowing visionary experience. So before Jerusalem before Rome before Mecca, there was a loose and for some reason, we're not taught about this in our high school mythology or or Western Sim classes, but it was there. That Plato Cicero Marcus Aurelius, all went to drink a magical potion and in their words have this vision. What play calls a a blessed sight and vision the holiest of mysteries in which they claim to have a direct encounter with the goddess and completely eradicate. The fear of death was very similar with the volunteers are saying with their single experience suicide when Now. With a loose, how much history do we have? How much recorded history that documents these rituals and is there any describes the actual contents of this mixture now, there isn't much a loose I say elusive is like the fight, club of the ancient world, the first rule about a loose is you don't talk about a loose this. Is this fragmentary testimony again from from Plato Pindar Sophocles and others they do talk about vision that's almost universal and they almost universally talk about this once in a lifetime transformative events where they become initiates and only they properly life after death because at the time, the Greeks didn't really look forward to the afterlife. In fact, there was no afterlife you just disappear into Hades to do God knows what but people walk away from Louis saying that they'd found salvation and we don't know why or how we know this potion is involved. We know they make this pilgrimage thirteen miles from Athens to a Louis drink this potion we know they prepare for months if not years before it. And there forever changed afterwards, but we have very little hard data. To actually look into it and so in nineteen seventy, eight, this this trio of renegades Gordon Watson, Albert Hoffman who discovered LSD and Carl Ruck, who was then the chair of the Classics Department at Boston University they put out this book the road to Lucius claiming they'd found the secret after two thousand years of what they claim does that potion was actually spiked with Ergot, which isn't that naturally occurring fungus from which you can. Synthesize LSD, and in fact, it's Albert. It's how he synthesize. LSD. By accident in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, eight with cultures of Ergot we've talked about before in this podcast connecting it to the Salem witch trials, which is very speculative but they think there's real evidence shows that there was a late frost during the time of the Salem witch trials that probably led to mold growth on their wheat, which probably led to Ergot infestations. And so these poor people were you know a unintentionally eating acid? On. It happened a lot there there. There were Erg or got outbreaks. Across time especially, in the Middle Ages, they would call it Saint Anthony's fire the socket because it's so so common. In fact, if you talk to any brewer today at least the that I was talking to I went to see this beer scientists in Munich Germany Martin's Armco and says, you can't avoid it now it's more common on things like Ri- but it also POPs up on barley and wheat to, and again it's unavoidable and it's highly highly toxic. The question is, does it really produce the kind of vision? The visionary experiences that people have on Scylla Sivan. LSD Masculine and others according to Albert Hoffman. Absolutely. So as a matter of fact I went into the Harvard Archives where Watson's papers are kept to this day and the botany libraries and I found a letter that Albert wrote. Gordon..

"hancock" Discussed on Veterans Chronicles

"Our guest this week on veterans chronicles. Is John Hancock? He is a World War Two veteran. Us Navy veteran. He was a gun on board. The USS Yorktown during the pivotal battle of Midway in June of nineteen forty two as the allies seized momentum in the Pacific that would last throughout the rest of the war. Mr Hancock. Thank you very much for being with US employer. Let's start with the beginning of your story. Where were you born and raised? I was born and raised in South Georgia North Florida I was born August tenth. Nineteen twenty four if you can believe graduated from High School in Georgia Georgia Navy. October twenty seven which used to be Navy Day are just still is nineteen forty one and there were three hundred sixty dollars from that area that join the navy that day And we want to Norfolk for our boot. Training graduated December fifth nineteen forty one and Norfolk and Japanese changed our minds on two days. Later and one aboard Yorktown CV five on the following week. It was in Drydock in Newport News and we got underway a few days later and went around to the Florida Straits through the canal up to San Diego had a few days. There got Iran. After Christmas we left said Diego at cod void so more battalion marines and their material dropped him off Of course we didn't go in being on a carrier. We didn't go into foreign ports although some more was marcus for the Japanese were running rapid so we didn't know what was going to happen or anything and so we left there and we went out to sea and over. The horizon came on another battle fleet and additional hours. We had Six destroyers and two cruisers plus are carrier York doubt and hours and then this Battle Fleet. It turned out was commanded by later to become famous. William Bear falls here calling bull back and he took off. It landed on Yorktown a pilot fly. Molo. He was apologizing so And he and our Admiral Admiral Fletcher got their heads together without our permission to course decided to bomb the Japanese so the first retaliatory strike of the war coordinated battle fleet was done in the Marshall Gilbert Island by the enterprise and her battle group in New York town and our battlegroup. We left there. What Pearl Harbor our first time? They're there for a few days. Took it all supplies re-fuelled and all that stuff off and we left there and went down to the Carl See. Japanese had ball townsend in northern Australia. And they were tried to invade. Port Moresby New Guinea. And we joined the the Oh Lexington Lexington Had We'll ran back into and then we bumped into the gap unease and they bumped into us and we had what I carrier by. The history of the world called Battle of the Coral Sea old man. The eight nine thousand nine hundred forty two. We just celebrated the New York with the Australian survivors. The Lexington was soak and we took a couple of bald and my good friends in the Marine Corps. Lock to tell you that. The Marines were first ashore in the Solomon Islands on Guadalcanal turned out to our fodder played Johnny Adams. Scotland custody was all were strafed and carrying on the dive bombers And it took a hit the gas take because he did it and so they landed on the beach at Guadalcanal. Nobody there and add landed behind him. And so the navy beat are good buddies a few days anyway. We should've destroyer in to pick them up. And which took launch three times that day. Mom to log as the Japanese were landed enforce and That tip the Japanese off that America was there was a carrier to and so and next couple of days we join forces had had what was called the battle of the Coral Sea. Lexington was so we took a couple of ball hits and we left and came back to Pearl fleck speed because admiral limits toll are admiral. Admiral Fletcher Bustard apparrel. We left an oil slick all the way because Jeff should open the seem. We wouldn't Pearl Harbor. Went around four dollars and right into dry dock and of course just being a kid see when I just heard scuttle but they said that it's totally yard workers To have that ship out of their seventy two hours he knew about the COVINGTON midway so they sent all of us. Kids are sure to get us out of the way. I guess people do what they were doing. What to work around the clock so into seventy two hours. They flooded the draw. Could we backed out and went to see in between the I Wa who had Monaco. We recovered airplanes and we went to place it. They had designated as point look which is approximately one hundred fifty miles northeast of Midway Island and we sat there and waited on Jap we got there about June the first or the second and then on June the fourth are PB wise located the jet. Fleet six carriers and their accompanying escort So I have to be Scott lookout and hours. Run over the way the to bridge. You could hear the admiral talking to the captain. The more than a June fourth and captain came out and said the admiral the Py's was located part of the J applete. They reported to carrier. Admiral says well. Let's just wait till it gives us a better fix at pretty soon. And there was another report that they had found the main fleet or some such thing and then I heard the admiral. Tell the captain signal enterprise who had the The other admiral. Oh there that was junior to Admiral. Fletcher tell a lot to deck loads everything got off the enterprise and Hornet and we will follow. As soon as we recover our scouts. We had to scout duty that morning and so they took off at Fortuna. Our Scout Hove into view and we recovered and so we should off. Our Butterfly are dive bombers and torpedo planes and fighters away at turned out the enterprise. Crusty clusky spotted a Jap destroyer and followed it to the Japanese fleet. That destroyer was a JEB. Destroy which is keeping all of our subs down that had got in there and it paid off. He got there and it just so happened at Yorktown attack. Force got there at the same time. So For their carriers. Three other carriers and it's important to note that the reason they all had four carriers at midway because we psych wanted heavily damaged two others goes ahead six in their battle fleet that had bombed Pearl Harbor on December seventh but anyway They've missed one. That was under a rain cloud. They came back to the ship at a Japanese following them and they attacked us at dropped. The ball down our stack and one on the flight deck where I got wounded knocked out but it stopped us and we were did in water for about the lowered. Our finally got bowlers by Code. Line and we got underway at radar reported unidentified aircraft approaching from the West Ed so our fighter intercept and enterprise fighters went out to intercept. What was left of the Hornet when you see the Hornet squadrons got lost splashed into water so made it made it back but they got the play had said are played over to land on the enterprise and Hornet the Japanese torpedo planes and they drop torpedoes on us. I was firing at them like everybody else was questionable whether we hit anything or not but anyway they dropped. Two torpedoes hit us back on the port. Quarter added stopped us again and we were listed we over the port captain. Orders ordered us to abandon the ship so we did At the our our planes that were on the enterprise and Hornet went with what they had left and found out fourth carrier psyche. It so cycle carriers important thing. We had psyched those that water. Have it damage? The other two that were at Pearl Harbor had six as I said before there would have been six carriers up so that Kinda helped matters. I guess so. We abandon ship and I went over the side over the port side. The flight deck was dipping into water. I got lost from everybody else. Mcconnell look I found myself all alone the ocean has courage like in the air and I got caught. 'cause we were taking the wounded and put those life biscuits we call them around thing. Putting a wounded scenario holding all of them but more guys kept coming our way to one hundred and thirty pounds elbowed me off so I found myself all alone was getting Dark Halo Old Cape Hawke Life Jacket and I had a TAB hanging out. Look down at it. Said flotation assured for twelve hours. Getting dark and I'd been the water a couple of hours by then so just before it got to darkness destroyer and I'll never forget it. I live to be a thousand. Dd Four Levin turned out media USS Anderson so they put me on a mess table out in the hall they felt. I had shrapnel in my right leg and neck oh and So but anyway. They took care of that. The next day they transferred US underway to the heavy cruiser Portland Cold bags and we started her overnight and the next day the USS full to the subject or had come out from Pearl took us all aboard. We went to Pearl Harbor Sir. Let's pause right there. We'll take a quick break. We'll be right back with John. Hancock World War Two. Us Navy veteran on veterans chronicles. We are back on veterans chronicles on the Radio America network. I'm Greg Columbus and I'm joined today by John Hancock. He is a veteran of World War. Two the US Navy served as gunner on the Yorktown and Sir You were just explaining the harrowing story of abandoning ship when the Yorktown was repeatedly torpedoed during the battle of midway and you're ultimately picked up by a destroyer. What's going through your mind as as your floating in the water during that time well of course of action for somebody to come and pulled me out of it at it. You get off the cold because you get soaked with water your way out to see I was hoping somebody would come by and did And so I think we had gotten to the place where the transferred US underway from the heavy cruiser Portland to the Fulton Pearl Harbor and the Navy sent the whole crew down to a little place on Oahu called Cooler. Actually we were almost like prisoners of war because the Navy America did not want to Japanese though that we were suck and so we just had a lot of fun playing in the surf off. Have you while down the air? I was an expert. Something like picking up cigarette butts and stuff like that so raking so they had me out doing more expertise and this Phil I was working with another sailor should ask me if I fell right. I said of course he said I said why he said because your lips or purple okay. I looked at my fingernails and they were just black so they had a Cormon in a little dispensary there and I went in there and he checked my bottles. Loaded jeep cured man to the hospital in Pearl Harbor where they found it. My right lung had collapsed and was a lack of oxygen..

"hancock" Discussed on Coffee House Shots

"And. Welcome to copy. Held shots spectators daily politics. Podcast I'm Cindy and I'm joined by James Aside and Cato's so we starting to get into month two of the lockdown and the United Front government has put forward so far seems to be cracking this morning. Telegraph front page report. An insider close number ten has said Matt Hancock. One hundred thousand tested a target is obviously and as a faint irrationality behind it. James. What's going on behind the scenes? So the governor has his very ambitious target. Hit One hundred thousand tests a day. That was the target that my angle financed. Downing Street press conferences. I think there were undoubtedly some people in the government whose noises will RAV put out of joint because they felt that ankle who can have come back from self-isolation per week and of swung in as if he was with his big very newsworthy. Talk it and there were people who can have wondered how achievable it was now. The government isn't there yet. They're they've got the capacity for about forty thousand tests right now but they're only doing hall about number and I've potentially. This'll be to blame game. Ary Going on about who is going to call the blame. If the government doesn't hit the hundred thousand tests a day marked by the end of the month and so I think there's a little bit of his Katie says in her blog when Boris Johnson was in hospital. Kind of everyone essentially shut up. I mean there was a realization that gonNA brief encounter briefing was not fueled a day when the prime minister is is on oxygen in hospital and now as kind of coming back to work. Some of his staffers flared up again. And I think that's what you saw. There is an interesting question on what was interesting. How both my ankle conjoined Newton was suggesting. The testing capacity is GonNa make another big jump forward again from forty thousand now. Obviously that would be a very big jump forward if you're GONNA hit one hundred thousand by the end of the month and having there are obviously. There's obviously a problem if you'll only using half of your testing capacity each day there's something wrong with the system so we wait to see that one hundred thousand but if they're inevitably is going to be some tension in government about who takes responsibility if the government doesn't hit that because I mean the danger for the government is you can see here. Storm in his lapel loyally ways constructing case and the case is that the government needs an exit strategy and exit strategy has to involve lots of testing so when the government fails to hit as it looks like it will be one hundred thousand tests day by the end of the month. He now has a context in which puts it in a way. Cbc lockdown could be eased more significantly if the government were hitting one hundred thousand testing target. I'm not gonNA give them to two bites. You can appeal to two different political constituencies. One of the people who wanted lockdown easy could easily done if the government could do this and the second is more of those on the public health side of things who think that this testing is the key to getting the disease under control. Personally I'm tiny bit. Skeptical about Germany's increase in Germany's first in class in Europe testing increasing testing over time. But a week ago it was still only testing north point six percent of its population a week when you probably if testing is really going to be the thing that gets you out of this you need to pre testing comes something like twenty percent of your population weak and Katie. But wouldn't it be the government who is damaged? The school is failed as well. How damaging do you think it could be? I mean the government misses. Its talk of one hundred thousand. I think most people sitting at home and not going to think Oh Matt. Hancock missed his talk. They're going to have A. I mean I think most people said to me at home still reading a human hand. Call Kids if you so. I think that this is about without the puppet ause people with Providence. You can tap me so ultimately I think any target is government. Talk the official robust today and clearly. There are things going on behind the scenes but in the number ten lunchtime briefing. You did have the prime minister's spokesman backing Matt Hancock and the official line on the record liden dynasty is. This is a government target. As James mentioned. I think there definitely has been annoyance and Matt Hancock but some reports suggesting creating senior Tory suggesting that basically Matt Hancock being lined up to be the guy in the subsequent corona virus public inquiry suggestions that he'll be moved. I've as row before you get to that inquiry and I'm not going to predict a cabinet reshuffle and hit a d think that there is something else going on and the has been annoyance to handle the ocean reviewed the time line of. There's been lots of cabinet sniping throughout the course of the response to Corona virus in government. It's made many column inches. We've had about all the various nicknames. They for each other and the fact that at one point Michael Gophers clashing with Matt. Hancock the union between the Hawks and the doves but I think that as soon as the prime minister went into intensive care there was a concentrated effort to stop the infighting and put on this united front just as in a way. There's this attempt for Cross party trees. You weren't going to see politics. Particularly attacking. The Tories offering scrutiny. Perhaps not going all that wild burst Jones. Since position. Health was up in the air. Do you think the fact that the prime minister is now back in some fool. He seems to be out of the woods and has the most dangerous pov his illness and is now at beginning to do things such as speak to the Queen. Speak to the president means that is almost as I think the break from normal politics past and I do think we're going to get more cabinet inviting in the coming days because in a way that was the immediate jolt of danger of Africa's bounced into behaving has passed and James. There was confusion today as well over the EU ventilator MPP scheme early in the day permanent secretary of the Foreign Office had said to a foreign affairs. Select Committee that the decision not to participate in the scheme was political now. Matt Hancock was asked about that. The press conference today where he said that actually he did join the scheme. This is not what we heard about before. So what's going on was a big if easy. Apparently we're GONNA get a letter from some of these actually forums. Clarifying what he meant shortly. I think in some ways on these arguments about these e you schemes would have more force if European countries will receive in huge shipments. Because of him I don't think yet that they that is happening. I also hear about ventilators. In which is. Yeah if we'd been recording. This costs a month ago. The big worry. The thing that really made people in government sweat was ventilators now ventilation become much less important. Issue Governor has precludes more but not because of some amazing procurement effort because doctors have become much less keen on intrusive ventilation of these mechanical ventilation as a way of dealing with corona virus. I think one of the one of the things that this is a reminder of is this is such a new disease everyone is learning about it all the time and so this thing that I think you know everyone. Government for was one of the biggest challenge is one of the most important issues with government. You're getting hold of movies has turned out not to matter anywhere near as much as people fought because the clinical view on the usefulness ventilators is beginning to change one thing that the government will be will be starting about today is the new numbers for excess deaths. Come out for the for the beginning of April. They showed that eight thousand more people than expected died in a week. Run Up to April tenth. Would you make of that? I think in a way is we're expecting to see in the sense that you'll start to see now. The daily figures put into context in terms of the stats. Which gives you a general sense. And this I think the deaths in England Wales. They've nearly doubled above. What would be expected? So we're hitting a twenty year. High of deaths is how has being reported. I think was interesting. Is You have the jazz specifically attributed to corona virus. Then you have which have gone up but they are not identified as renovated staffs and that has this gray area and no one is exactly shoe because it could be two things really. It could be the at the moment. The deaths and not being correctly identified as corona virus deaths perhaps because of a lack of showing the symptoms as particular complications in care homes but GP's in many cases come in and have to do things remotely and it could be the effect of deaths related to indirectly to corona virus in the sense of those people who have conditions but perhaps not getting things check die on not going to hospital because of corona virus and I dating were able to answer that yet and James. There is one piece of good news. Which is that. The Oxford vaccination team will be starting human trials for its vaccine on Thursday is light at the end of the tunnel or is it to Intel is obviously this is obviously some good news reminder that we have there's absolutely first rate research universities in this country. I mean there is an interesting debate. In in scientific opinion about which is more lightly A vaccine or cure for corona virus. I think if you listen to what Patrick balance comments the other day in the press conference when they announced extra funding for vaccine research. You didn't need a degree in reading between the lines. Tell it he fought for a cure was perhaps more like even a vaccine one thing. I hadn't realized until the other day is that song has been trying to find a vaccine for Krona viruses in general for quite sometime now obviously the funding the urgency of always has changed dramatically with this pandemic. But I think it is. It is very difficult disease to falling a vaccine for. If it's Oxford team manages to pull it off. It will be absolutely remarkable achievement. I think that there is also another kind of political elements. It would obviously be very good news world if this happened but where my ankle by the avant has been the first country I mean the huge won- crew to being the first country. This is another thing going on here. Which is if you look at Boris Johnson's vision for the future of the UK. Economy looks over is about being kind of research that economy using the quality of UK universities to deliver economic benefit and if this country was to be the country that have cracked for Corona virus vaccine. It would be an incredibly powerful advert for quality of British Science and research last Katie. It's easy to forget it but parliament actually comes back this week from recess in a digital form how much this change politics at the coming days. Yes I think James India plug this time. James is a very good blog on. Coffee has what we had today lose an agreement that we all have to zoom format. So tomorrow we'll start to see pulse functioning in this in this way looking at prime minister's questions we've Dominic Robb kissed Alma. Dominic Robb still sending in for Boris Johnson. Though it's clear Boris Johnson is beginning to ease himself back in Beit Remote Day. And I think what would be really interesting to see is a sense of where the Tory party sits. In terms government's handling having hostile questions are are. And we'll say we're going to get a fuss them's of kissed on Labour leader and have you plans to play scrutiny to the government. I think all of this however is going to have a little bit less edge because a lot of it is going to be done by video link and that means is a hard to ask a follow up question. I didn't think that would be possible. And secondly we know how tech can often let us down and quite the same in terms of me. We'll get a glimpse as clear glimpses as if we had a chain before and James Burst. Johnson might not be at prime minister's questions this week but he does seem to be back in some capacity. You'll be hearing more from him. I think he's making a phased return to work. So He's not backer for pelt but I think we are now in a position based on what you hear from white who sources that you know. They will now be no really big government decisions taken about grown of ours the on essentially his decisions. He is back to the extent that he is he. The nothing massive is going to be decided now without his input. James Katie thanks. Very much and can subscription has put cast the audiovisual rates.

"Regardless of Garfield true intention. His speech on June fifth put him squarely in the conversation as words were carried by telegraphed newspapers all across the country and the homes of the Public Garfield speech. Want him points with the people but caused a rift inside the Sherman camp. The morning after his speech Sherman received a telegram from supporter that read. He has been of no service to you. He was extremely lukewarm. In your support. He has Garfield man and in truth. Garfield was entertaining the idea of running his private correspondence reveals that conflicted man who could see both sides of the question too good and the bad as he wrote to his wife. His biggest concern was Roscoe. Conquering even if Garfield won the nomination. He told her it will be to likely embitter him and his followers against me publicly. Garfield did not commit but many delegates were warming up to the idea of a Garfield nomination. Especially in the face. A likely gridlock between Blaine and grant Garfield was repeatedly approached by delegates looking to test the waters and repeatedly dismissed the idea of his own candidacy and sued fast by Secretary Sherman but despite his public posture Garfield speech had started something he could no longer control on June seventh. The first ballot was in line with previous predictions and the press grant three or four Blaine to eighty four Sherman. Ninety-three on the first day Garfield picked up a single vote from Pennsylvania delegate. The rest of the votes were spread across several minor candidates. By the end of that. First Day of voting. After over twenty ballots little had changed grant and Blaine were still neck and neck and still well short of the required number after a long day of voting. A reporter asked one delegate appointed question. Do you think it's possible for the blame? Men To support Sherman. The delegate responded bluntly no Sir when the reporter asked him about Garfield then a delegate demurred saying only imparting good evening the next day on the thirty fourth ballot Garfield 's name started to ring out sixteen delegates from Wisconsin voted for Garfield from there. The dominoes fell one by one. Delegates from all across the country threw their support behind. Garfield on the thirty six ballot. The contest was over. Garfield secured three hundred ninety five votes and the Republican nomination after that final vote Garfield told a reporter for Chicago newspaper. I wish you would say that. This is no act of mine. I have done everything. Omitted nothing to secure Secretary Sherman's nomination one Sherman. Supporters sent the secretary the bad news via telegraph the Movement to Garfield swept with lightning rapidity through the convention. He is nominated hall erupted in cheers. The Chairman Bank has gavel and pronounce James. A Garfield of Ohio is nominated for the president of the United States. Conclaves men though had remained firm. They stood by grant until the final ballot in the end. It was James Blaine half breeds that defected to Garfield camp a few minutes after the announcement roscoe conflict took the floor and said I congratulate the Republican Party of the United States on the good nature and well tempered rivalry which has distinguished this animated contest though. His outward words and actions were magnanimous. His tone was solemn and gloomy. Conkland was deep down furious. Whether by accident or design James Garfield had successfully secured his party's nomination but to win. In the General Election Garfield new. He would have to unite the Republican Party behind his candidacy to accomplish. That goal. Garfield would have to curry favor from the very man. He just feed roscoe conquering as was his custom. Conflict would ask for something in return..

"Not long after the meeting between Arthur and Chandler the delegates at the convention voted to reject the unit rule. Four forty nine to three. Oh six it's impossible to know. Exactly why conch push for a compromise or why he gave out what many perceived as being a massive advantage. Perhaps he questioned Cameron's loyalty days earlier. Cameron had sent a message to Secretary Sherman indicating that if he would instruct his people to back the unit rule cameron believed the stalwarts would eventually abandon grant and defect to Sherman side. Perhaps conquering felt betrayed by this. Or perhaps he feared Cameron was right. In his assessment. The unit rule could help Conklin but in the event of a stalemate with Blaine. It could hurt him to still. The most likely explanation is that conquering was worried about the political ramifications of Split Convention. And he was not alone. Ultimately after Arthur's compromise supporters of all three candidates on board including James Garfield but rumours of Garfield darkhorse candidate only increased after the compromise was struck with unit rule. Off The table. It was anyone's convention grant and Blaine were locked in a tight contest with Sherman in a distant third all three well shy of the required number of votes a gridlock between Blaine and grant could certainly result in a Sherman victory but it also left the door open for any candidate candidate like Garfield to rise to the top while at the Convention Garfield wrote to his wife. You can hardly imagine the embarrassment. I have been in from the moment of my arrival here. By the number of delegates from all quarters who were openly expressing. The wish that I was the Ohio candidate if Garfield was embarrassed by the support for his nomination at the convention his behavior seemed to indicate otherwise as Roscoe Conklin continued to scheme on grants behalf Garfield would take principled stance that would fan the rumor mill of his dark horse candidacy and position him as the man to beat at the Chicago.

"By the late eighteen seventies the Republican party was fractured the radical Republicans. The men largely responsible for the radicalization of slavery and the establishment of civil rights were fading from prominence. Famous radicals thaddeus Stevens were dying or disappearing into the obscurity of retirement. Men like James Blaine and Roscoe conquering where the future of the Republican Party and these two men would become the leaders of two distinct Republican factions the stalwarts and the half breeds roscoe concrete and the stalwarts were largely in favour of the political machinery that propped up federal patronage a process by which elected candidates reward their supporters with political posts and perks. The half breeds were largely in favour of civil service reform an attempt to eliminate federal patronage and replace it with a merit based system wherein the most qualified person would get the job regardless of politics. The term half breed was an insult invented by the stalwarts in the wake of the civil war. Democrats in the south had consistently opposed president. Grant's administration and the Federal Patronage System thus men like James Blaine who agreed with half Democrat. Policies were themselves half Republican eventually. The half breeds embrace the insult and were like a badge of honor as the two factions of the Republican Party. Vie For dominance in the eighteen seventies. Conklin and Blaine would rise to positions of power. Blaine would become the speaker of the House and eventually a senator. Though his record on civil service reform was funny he would ultimately garner the confidence of many. In the half breed faction roscoe conquering would become the defacto boss of the stalwarts and would control the levers of power in New York. Republican politics these two immovable forces would collide in June of eighteen eighty in Chicago at the Republican National Convention. There conkland and Blaine would fight a political battle. That would result in gridlock and give rise to a dark horse candidate who neither man saw coming in the midst of the chaos of the eighteen eighty convention. Former Major General James a Garfield would rise to power. In the general election he would strive to unite the two warring factions of the Republican Party and get the best of a formidable war hero Democrat. This is episode. Twenty four eighteen eighty garfield versus handcock mousetrap. During President Grant's two terms roscoe conquering in the stalwart had remained loyal. Even in the face of a never ending list of scandals that plagued grants administration. The stalwarts had largely backed rants efforts to make good on the promises of the Thirteenth Fourteenth and fifteenth amendments which collectively were meant or radical slavery and guarantee all rights of citizenship to former slaves but the many scandals grant administration had branded the Republican Party with corruption and alienated many in his own party. Men Light James Blaine and the other half breeds. Additionally during grant's presidency federal patronage was alive. And well so in eighteen seventy six. The half breeds helped to elect Rutherford B Hayes. A PRO reform candidate the election of eighteen. Seventy six had only served to further damage. The reputation of the Republican Party Hayes. Victory was the closest yet in American. History vote recounts were required in several states including Florida. But those recounts were controlled by Republican runs state governments when Hayes was declared the winner Democrats accuse Republicans of stealing the election. They call the eighteen seventy six contest. The great fraud of eighteen. Seventy six they gave Rutherford B. Hayes nickname his fraudulent then as president hayes angered the stalwarts and the remnants of the radical Republican faction two. He presided over the end of reconstruction and withdrew federal troops from the south even in the face of mounting evidence that southern states were depriving black-americans of their constitutional rights. Additionally Hayes made concerted efforts to fulfil his promise of civil service reform. Needless to say Roscoe Conklin and the Star Wars did not support a second term for Rutherford B Hayes even if James Blaine and half breeds did it wouldn't have mattered. Hayes had made a promise to be a one term president. His DECISION NOT TO COMPETE IN EIGHTEEN. Eighty therefore set the table for a political showdown between conquering.

"It's April eighteen sixty six on Capitol Hill in Washington. The House is locked in an intense debate over a bill to establish the post civil war military after hours of Jabs and spars one thirty six year old Republican congressman from UTICA. New York takes the floor. Standing over six feet tall roscoe conquering rises to his feet. His booming voice filling the chamber. I moved to strike out. Section Twenty of the bill section twenty provides for the salary of the provost marshal the head of recruitment for the army. The war's over conquering feels. It's an unnecessary position. Also helped by a man. He despises General James Frye. This section creates an unnecessary office for an undeserving public servant. It fastens an incubus upon the country. General Fry presides over Dan of thieves who victimized the public through blatant deception but many in the chamber disagree with conch links assessment including a young Republican from Maine named James G. Blaine Blaine has no love for conquering the to have repeatedly sparred on the House floor over a myriad of issues at a recent dinner party. They even exchanged some less than polite words. General FRY is a man blamed supports one. He considers honorable so this attack from conkland leaves the congressman from Maine Fuming. What happened to the millions of dollars? That mysteriously went missing during the war. Answer that question. One need look no further than the office of General Fry. Conquering is a rising star. Well on his way to becoming the de facto boss of New York politics. He's not the sort of man to be crossed lightly but on this day in April of eighteen. Sixty six for James. Blaine enough is enough as conquering returns was seated in the gallery. Blaine takes the floor when I hear the gentlemen from New York Rehearse in this house his argument against General Fry. My personal indignation carries me beyond my personal strength. Playing can barely contain his rage has he? Attacks conflicts motion. The gentleman from New York and General Fry had many disputes over the years in these corals it is generally understood that the gentleman frequently came out second best. There is a personal issue that does not belong on the floor of the house where general fry has no recourse to defend himself unwilling to back down. Conquering seeks recognition and takes back the floor. Mr Speaker I mean to take advantage of the absence of general on the contrary I'm ready to avow would have said anywhere. I am responsible not only here but elsewhere for what I've set the Chamber Fall Silent Conquering Venturing into dangerous territory. You suggesting that if Blaine doesn't back down you will challenge him to a duel. The false report given by the gentleman from Maine should have no bearing on my motion. Blaine is still furious. He calls out from the chamber. What does the gentlemen mean to say was false? I mean to say that. The statement made by the gentleman from. Maine is false. Blaine turns to the Speaker of the House and Demands Mr Speaker. I call a gentleman order chair. Overrules a point of order. I have the parliamentary right overruled. This plane I demand he shall state what was false. And what I said. The gentlemen from Maine will spend but the gentleman from Maine does not spent and ultimately conquering relents and allows blame to retake the floor. Blaine regains his composure and addresses his fellow. Congressman. When we had the gentleman here from eleven seceded states. They used to talk about answering here and elsewhere and it was understood that they meant a dual. I take it. The gentlemen from New York means the same well now. That is very cheap. When I have to resort to the epithet of false upon this floor and this chiefs swagger I shall have very little faith in the cause I stand up to maintain.

"They that John Hancock on Michael Kelly you know who you are we're going to be with you for another hour John we live with the conclusion of the conversation before we got in the sports applying with senator I talked about what's happening inside the Republican Party as it relates to doing away with the primary process and so many states you know Donald Trump is facing opposition from two or three people inside the Republican Party not much traction being gotten by any of them but Jimmy Carter wishes that they could of eliminated the primary process when Ted Kennedy chose to run against him. isn't this undemocratic coming you for a for a party that's running around in using the word socialism when you're going and taking the democratic process out of the selection of your nominees something that's been a part of our country for a hundred years isn't this under I mean this is undemocratic you want to throw the word socialism around this is off their tarian ism well I don't like this you know eliminating primaries and caucuses in states that have caucuses now I mean I just don't like it is it from a principal standpoint from a practical standpoint it's not gonna have any Donald trump's going to be the Republican nominee I understand people are going to beat him in the states of decided that there's great cost involved in putting these things on and and why do it if they could have put on the democratic pref prob primary all right understood well or call our caucus no but you if they're there is the fundamental marker so I understand and I agree with you and yet but from a practical standpoint is not gonna make any difference but do you do you hate to see you you know this kind of an approach you the ideally in this country people need to speak and voices need to be heard and I have long contended that our system of government would work much better if more people participated in primaries I I think get out one of the things that happened in our two political parties is that fewer and fewer people are identifying with either one one or the other and fewer and fewer people are participating in the primary in the candidate selection process then that's what produces the ultimate choice that we all make in November one of the things that the Republicans and particularly the president's done is weaponized this word of socialism well it's all of our some of the props prop up. sees that the Democrats are going because they're socialistic but how can you stand and sit there and call someone else on democratic in a socialist when you were doing an affair tarian move like this I mean this is absurd I mean how can you sit there with a straight face as a as a person calling on socialism and say but what I'm doing as an authoritarian that's totally fine well I'm not doing that but I don't like you know what I mean yeah yeah the just the general the generic you yeah the universal you the universe out yeah I you know it's it's it's regrettable but the end of the day at the end of the day Donald Trump is going to be the Republican nominee for president in twenty twenty whether or not South Carolina has a primary or not well this is a question to bring it to you in the next hour we get a chance but hypothetically if Donald Trump loses in the next election does the Republican Party have some serious soul searching to do and some clean up maybe because of the abandonment of many of the conservative principles they stood for me but I'm I'm not certain that this party is a is a movement conservative party but if you just look at the electorate and and what's been taking place out there that's going to be a debate you member after the twenty after Obama was re elected we had the soul.
