Trump and Biden hit key states in final campaign stops
"Of the axioms of presidential campaigning watch where where the the candidates candidates are are travelling travelling in in the the final final days. days. And And on on this this final final day day of of activity activity before before Election Election Day, Day, it it looks looks like like Pennsylvania Pennsylvania is is considered considered the the most most important important prize prize and joining us live CBS News Political reporter Caitlin Huey Burns, who's been all over Pennsylvania. Caitlin, Thank you so much for joining us. Hi. Thanks for having me. So you're on the road somewhere in Pennsylvania. Why has the Keystone state emerged as perhaps the chief target here by both the Trump and Biden campaigns. That's right. We're leaving Bucks County and heading back to Philadelphia. This is the battleground of all battlegrounds. President Trump was here making four stops around Pennsylvania yesterday. Joe Biden is barnstorming the state today with this family come alone. There is also here. Pennsylvania is key for a couple of different reasons. First, it offers 20 electoral votes. A huge prize for whoever wins the presidency and also in 2016, it was decided by just 44,000 votes that's such and there are large in and at the margin that help Trump When the White House he's hoping it helped when again, But both campaigns say that this is a very close race, perhaps closer than the polls we've to believe, and the Biden campaign wants to take know voter for granted. They're crossing all over the state today, hoping to get every last vote out. We also know that Pennsylvania this is the first time that they're having absentee ballots, no excuse absentee ballot programming. About three million people have requested an accepted absentee ballots. Um, we've been talking to voters who like this process. Want to make sure Their vote isn't to be counted. You know, it seems like Pennsylvania. Like many other states, It's really an election between the cities in the suburbs and then the rural areas where the president has a real stronghold. That's absolutely right. So you're going to see the vice President Joe Biden, campaigning and places like Philadelphia and the suburbs around Philadelphia, which, as we've seen since the 2018 midterms have shown kind of perhaps a realignment of the parties also campaigning in places like Pittsburgh. The president, meanwhile, has been campaigning in areas that he flipped. In 2016 counties. Ah ah, that, you know that include former Vice President Joe Biden, hometown of Scranton, Uh, that flipped from Obama to Trump in 2016 hoping to maintain those areas support. You're going to hear the president. Talk about oil and fracking. You're going to hear Joe Biden really talk about Krone virus pandemic and making that a centerpiece of his campaign. We talk a lot about bellwether places. What part of Pennsylvania? Are you considering the bellwether tomorrow night to see which way things might go? Well, a couple of different places that we focused our reporting right now. We as I mentioned we're in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. This is a place where the margins have really narrowed in 2016. Hillary Clinton wanted by fewer than 3000. Votes, and you talk to a variety of different voters at a early Dropbox location, who kind of gave us a sense of that area as a key battleground watch. We're also keeping an eye on those three counties that Trump flipped from Obama to trump in 2016 1 of them is a place that we were over the weekend, North Hampton An area that we were walking around name neighbors, neighborhoods with canvassers and finding trumps science Next. If I don't sign their neighbors against neighbors, you could be in the same neighborhood and be supporting two very different candidates. So those are kind of the areas that we're watching to see. It's basically a game of turning out your voters. And that's why if you live in Pennsylvania, you're likely getting calls from campaigns urging UT either Get your ballot in or show up on election Day. Hey, Caitlin, our time is up, So I need a quick answer on this, but Do you agree with this? Thought that whoever wins Pennsylvania wins the election. I think it is going to be critical to whoever with the White House. All
Taking Off! with Aircraft Photography
"Welcome back to another episode of this week and Photo GonNa Treat for you today I'm speaking with John Thou-. He's down in southern California and he's doctor for slash illustrator who's WHO's made his mark taking amazing photographs of some amazing aircraft, and I'm excited to talk to him John Welcome to the show man how you doing. Frederick I'm doing great. Thanks you know you you you are very welcome. I'm excited dive into this 'cause you as you and I discussed our pre interview. Air Force, x Airforce Guy Air Force combat photo journalist used to take pictures of these planes haven't been in any of these planes the. No the only aircraft that I've flown in a U. H one in you know. Huey right. So photographers used to fly around with the doors open taking pictures of rocket launches and stuff like that. But I never had the opportunity to get in a fast burner. One of these guys. So a jealous. Don't be totally jealous. We've been around a whole lot of them, but I gotTA. Tell you post nine eleven that change for us to, and there's there's a lot of that I, the majority of my flight time in the amazing aircraft been really warbirds We've done some stuff with the air force where were in Casey one, thirty, five and I say. I say we that is not the royal we I it's I know we're talking about my catastrophe but my two sons have been a very integral part of slick pixels and we've been photographing with knee since they were. Gosh. Publishing were about eight years old each and so that's That's been a part of that. So when I say we, you want everybody to understand I'm talking about the three of us in that respect. But yeah, with the fast with the quote on quote fast air. We have not had that opportunity as much as we would alive. Civilian stuff and and some transports in some dice photo platforms but anyhow, don't be too jealous. AM still jealous though I mean. To be around those aircraft and and shoot 'em how we got you into this. Line of photography, what was the path that you that led you to the runway? That's a great question. So as a kid, my dad was a pilot private pile even though we had a commercial rating as as my grandfather was really my grandfather that I flew with primarily He was kind of the head electricity out at point Mugu and so in addition to his Gosh in addition to his pilot's love for aviation as piloting skills in world war two, he had flung be seventeens. Primarily stateside So he wasn't he was not on combat missions at that time, but anyway it at Magoo he had one of these things was to help with the air show every year. So from about the time I was about seven years old I was at I couldn't get enough point. Know I was out there and a garage in wonderful navy stuff and air force stuff and whatever every single year and. My family would always go out one day a year, and then I talked him into taking be with him and and I kind of go out there with him and he had set it up to where I was sitting with the pilots and going back and forth with the whether it was the blue angels or whoever needs set me up with some vendor on the flight line that I could go get lunch and I pretty much have the run of the place all weekend from the time of as eight years old. So that's what started it. I had a little Brownie camera that belonged to my mother that. You know there's actually GonNa, get a book I have coming out later this year there's a couple of those little shots still back in those days they used to they used to fire live sidewinders during an airshow and. Again today was pretty great. So how did you manage to avoid enlisting or signing up and going going top gun? You look like you could have been the top gun pilot. What happened I love that you say that Man I. Come in addition to photographic. Ask by the way I, did go in and I talked to a recruiter on more than one occasion. At the particular time I was going through I know now that I got what turned out to be a bad advice. I was told that I was too tall for fighters and I know now that that was not true I'm about six one. That's you know. So while I had sat in a t thirty eight felt a little cramped got a couple of buddies who do this professionally that are bigger guys than I did just find so. At the time I think they were looking for cargo pilots looking back on it sure the colleen and done that. But you know with my art career that had started to take off a bit and one thing leads to another I realized. I. Couldn't do both, and so I've done a lot of graphic design work in support of the military as well. So done doesn't work as a civilian contractor that way. So that's that's kind of how it ended up. You know at a God had different plans can I tell you but it's definitely the the road not taken for me.
Freedom Summer: Barbara Lee
"In June nineteen sixty four freedom summer also known as the Mississippi Summer Project was a volunteer campaign across America to attempt to register as many black American voters as possible in Mississippi. News coverage of freedom summer shed a light on the white supremacy and police brutality that black Americans face. We. Don't Tuesday night the finding of three bodies in graves at the site of a damn near Philadelphia Mississippi where three civil rights workers disappeared six weeks ago. Over the past few weeks we have been experiencing another freedom summer. Minnesota are saying to people in New York two people in California to people in Memphis to people all across this nation enough is enough cell phone videos and social media are once again providing glaring spotlight on the inequities and injustice that are woven into the fabric of American society. In this special season of the browns to politics, we are diving into the past in how is impacting our present and future. For protests to political campaigns and youth involvement change is in the air and the fight for liberation continues. We'll be hearing from some of the Black Women at the forefront at today's movement who are fighting for change in making history to ensure that we have justice for all. Her name was even floated as a potential. VP. Pick for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's. It is no surprise that would ever congress is debating issues of equity and justice. Congress will lease voice is one of the strongest and most prominent today we talk about her work as a college student, a member of the Black Panther Party and what Congress is, do we to fight systems of oppression to reshape reimagined our political world? Congresswoman Barbara Lee thank you so much for joining us and happy belated birthday. Breaking very good happy with you. I'm really excited to talk to you today and for our listeners, the congresswoman is such a legend and all of her work that she has done in. Congress over the years especially for Black Brown and indigenous communities by I have to ask you this question because it's something that I just wanted to talk to you about for so long is. You were a part of the Black Panthers. What was it like being? Black Panther I actually was not a member of the Black Panther Party I was what they call the community worker community workers had a lot of responsibilities as the Black Panther. Party. Members and remember the Black Panther Party began as a result of police Gupta brutality and the African American community. I mean. They stood down the police because things, police, murders, police Retali- as we know now were occurring then and they were the first organization that really took the police on, and so it was out of that that the Black Panther party formed, there's the Bible programs because it was not only an organization that address police brutality, but it was an organization that addresses chemic-. Racism and poverty. and. So what I did, and which was really phenomenal work and I was a single mother on public assistance with two little boys. I helped sell newspapers like math a newspaper on street corners I actually participated in the breakfast program for children who didn't have whose parents didn't have enough money to buy food and that's actually the breakfast programs from the federal government. Actually. Started as a result of the of the models that the Black Panther party you. I also really worked with you. He knew then did the research on his book Revolutionary Suicide. It was really phenomenal project I got to know Huey Newton Bobby Seale, Elaine Brown, Erica Huggins Joan Kelly, who just passed away and many of the leadership of the black. Panther party because community worker and student I was very involved in a lot of the work with party members. I actually brought Shirley Chisholm got involved in politics through the first presidential the first. Time. A black woman ran for president and that was sure children who was the first African American woman elected to Congress and so the Black Student Union president I invited her to come to milk college where I was attending and I got involved in her campaign by herb insisting that I register the vote and I had a class go because I didn't WanNa work in any of those campaigns. Well, bottom line is working her campaign and got the Black Panther party really involved in voter registration efforts. I. Was the one that went and asked Huey Noonan Bobby Seale to consider becoming politically active around early Chisholm campaign and they did. So I worked on all phases of the black. Panther. Party and all the different divisions I actually bag groceries. You know the panthers had a whole ten point program which again, the Free Breakfast program for the kids They started the Community Health Center Movement by instituting the George Jackson free medical clinic they did sickle cell tests. In fact, there was the Black Panther party that raises awareness about sickle cell disease as a as a disproportionate impact African Americans Fast Board Twenty Twenty people in the African American community and Black and Brown news still struggling disproportionately as it related to food security food desert healthcare disparities, unequal education. I. Helped. Start. Actually I wrote the first proposals for the Black Panther Party community learning center. They establish a Black Panther party school and so I was very instrumental in working on that project. So I did a lot of work with the Black Panther Party and I can just speak to how phenomenal they were and how necessary they were and how we should as we move forward. You know there's this Symbol in a gun and Andy. In government in Ghana called and Copeland. If the bird beautiful bird looking back holding an egg in her mouth and like in order to move forward in order to blackboard and you have to look back, we have to know our history we know where we've been and we have to build upon that so that we can move forward it. Now a wonderful young people in the Movement for Black, flags, or dreamers all the movements that are taking place are a continuation of what I see as the civil rights movement of of today, as well as what Black Panther Party actually started as it relates to stand down and and thing that that policing in our community. chain stop disproportionate killing black, and Brown people

Huey: The Workhorse of Vietnam Exhibit
"Thought we'd We'd make you switch seats and Hanson and roles in everything Chris and talk about this new. One of one of the new exhibits that's gone into the museum, but a new aircraft for us. It is I'm really excited. It's something that as a rudder head. I've kind of been wanting to see the museum acquire for the last several years, but we were able to. Get A U H One Huey helicopter Totally, excited to see that come in and I I know we're going to get into a lot of the the Riviera of but It was exciting to see it. get trailer it on into us. Well, that's cool, and that of course happened in the midst of all the complications around around covert and those other restrictions, so we'll talk about that in a bit, too, but interesting to me that just with the passage of time with our museum This is something that we have an eagle hangar has traditionally been the venue, or we talk about military history, and we have our warbirds and other artifacts and things. That's been largely focused on World War Two since the advent of the museum, but we've seen F eighty six, an megan there periodically touching into Korea. Thomas More Scout, that sort of his edge, and there's going to cover World War One but this is really our first four into Vietnam, isn't it? Is it is? This is the first aircraft that we have from the Vietnam era Interestingly enough if you go back several years sort of on the gate guard side of things. We actually had a couple sky, raiders, and those are actually on different military bases. Now they were on loan to us but this is the first true aircraft donation to artifact that that we have in in the museum. Proper here and It's really exciting to see that come in because. You know when you if you look back. When Eagle. Hangar was built it was you know it was opened in the nineties, You know. It's about the fiftieth anniversary of world. War Two turn. Now you know were We're focusing never GONNA lose that focus of the World War Two generation that always going to be something special but we are broadening the horizons a bit to make sure we're. Live of experience excellent. Yeah, absolutely excellent, so then I suppose the first obvious question here is. Where did the idea for the Huey Exhibit? Come from was something that you know we've been looking at for a while. And the right opportunity came up or was this sort of a newer like we really need to. Branch out a little bit and feature this part of history as well It's something that that personally I've been pushing for a couple years. I joined the museum team that I think we need to get get a healy and and there are several reasons why that aircraft Early well. We have a Our Museum director is Huey pilot, so it wasn't hard to. To Sell Ron on the idea of. Like, we should have a you hit owed. He's like well. That sounds good to me. Who flew those? Which is true? Yes, exactly exactly, you're listening. So, it was very Once I came back with. Hey, there's more to it than just getting Hughie You know there's a lot of programming that comes with that we could do. There's a lot of artifact display that we could do love storytelling. And I think once once we all sat down and we really took a hard look at it rather than just a the perspective of boy. Wouldn't it be nice to have one We really got into what we could do with it. I think it was. It was kind of obvious we should we should. Try and get one.
Hangar Flying to Favorite Airports
"Let's kick things off. and. Let's start sort of sort of closer to home of the three of us come from different parts of the country and different experiences. all around, but Let's start here in the mid and just kind of round. Robin sort to work our way out so tom that you kick it off. Of your favorite One of your favorite Midwest airports. Sure well. Obviously, we all. We all know and love wittman regional airport here in here in oshkosh which. A lot of people don't get to experience during the other fifty one weeks of the year, but it's a very vibrant little airport on I guess it's kind of unique in that you know we have this giant runway lay out that. You know in in many ways serves the needs of the tenants airport, but also another ways you know uniquely serves the needs of Va.. So it's, it's a very big airport for. For what it is, that's kind of neat but. But yeah kind of going a little farther afield of of. I all A- Wisconsin That is sixty three Charlie if I remember correctly. I look. Central County, airport. Is a little grass strip about twenty miles thirty miles, maybe north west of of Oshkosh. That has three grass runways including one. That actually has a parallel grass taxiway. And plenty of space departure airplanes, they even have a little bit of a campsite with a with a fire ring and. Some showers that are available and stuff like that, so you can come in and camp but it is the absolute epitome of a grassroots airport, and the really neat thing that they do at Iowa is on every Friday. They host a lunch for members of the community as well as members of the classic car community locally. And just fly in there pay a couple of bucks for lunch and on a good day in the summer you'll see I think their record is similar north of eighty airplanes. So that's like a really really amazing annual fly in that we do every every week up here. That place really is so much fun. like you said multiple grass runways and number one. When you when you told me that you're you're airstrip. Airport has a grass runway. You know already sold when tell me has more than one than I. Just swoon a little bit. That's so cool and they've got their. Big Open sort of hangar style clubhouse, and there's a million airplane models hanging from the ceiling and pictures all around all kinds of cool history, and you know a great cast of characters. Food is always amazing. Now one thing that Tom United talked about this before, and we've. We've been up there. Many times in order for them to to make this work into serve food without necessarily. Having to call themselves restaurant you know they're still. They still have To adhere to and everything of course, but basically you join. The is the Central County Sport Flyers. Central, county flyers associated. Center County Flyers, association, and a lifetime membership is something like eleven dollars, and so you get there? You show your membership card, and then you are part of the Social Club and you can, you can eat at. Boy It's it's well worth it. You still pay for the lunch. But, just a just a blast to go up there. See what kind of airplanes come in. You mentioned classic cars being a big thing up there. One of the biggest car shows in the country, if not the biggest actually held up there, and I allowed kind of out of the way out of the way spot and that culture pervades around. I think so many of us who love airplanes can appreciate. Cars and motorcycles and other vintage machinery, to yeah, and you mentioned the CL-. The Central County Flyers. Association I believe under Wisconsin Law. If you're in a social club, it has to have some kind of a common purpose so in order to join the Central County Fires Association you must. Attest that you are dedicated to the promotion of General Aviation. That is something that I don't think any of us would have any trouble doing. and. I'm willing to go on record. Yes, we can. We can manage that. So Chris, how about you? What what are you got in the Mid West you like, so? I'M GONNA turn slightly south and talk about the fond lack airport Fund lack airport. I spent a couple of days at it a couple of weeks ago because they let a stage, the Huey there as we're moving our new edition into the museum. And I didn't realize how busy that little airport is that we had a couple really nice clear days and I was blown away. That was a that was. A Busier airport does few days. I, was there, but what really stands out for me is the early trips when I would come from Pennsylvania to hear you know fund. Lack was the first. SORTA signed. That something was different. You heading towards something great, you know you're you're coming up forty one. It's just on the left side of forty one and like you'd go by this normal general aviation look airport and there'd be like a hell diver sitting next to the road. See. You knew that like that's not normal. You know and there'd be a Corsair there or and. It was it was basically overflow for the show and They basically had their own air show down there. I mean you just walk around looking at some of the coupons just park down there either you know someone rides or waiting their turn to get into the field here Nash cash in but it was always that I like I remember. It was probably pretty dangerous because we would always likes trainer. I'm probably not pay close attention to the roads. We should pass and fond lack airport just to. See what was out, and what was there and it really really helped peak the excitement of close out ten hour trip

We spent months looking for a tune, they would work for Stanton and then Chris came up with that little riff, and I wrote small world just four. As as a vehicle now you did. You guys kept touring. You kept making new albums, but you didn't before this album. You didn't do a new album for twenty years right? I think two thousand was your last. Not Not an album of original material, right? We've done a couple of things since then, but the yeah souls Ville, we do rb. Stacks Really Memphis tribute now. Were you a big stacks fan? I was okay. Because what's great about that record. You do respect. Yourself and I think a couple of Solomon Burke Song. But most of them are songs. Most people don't know that's a You've got a couple of great Johnny Taylor Song. Free just the one I'm looking for right right good for you. That's see my the theory was because people have done original versions of old songs, like Mustang Sally or or or knocking on wood, or so man or something. And I saw was either completely original version of soul, man, or those of really recognizable song, or find songs that weren't so recognizable that people didn't know anything about and do faithful versions of those. I thought that would be more fun. Yeah, so tell me a little your new album seven songs, and that's because Iran is that's how many con- you. Know! That the reason, no You know some of it like like you're single. Her love is killing. That sounds very much like an eighties. Everybody says that I don't i. don't hear it. You what the comment I get more anything else is that it's just vintage. Huey, Lewis on news. It sounds like Huey. Lewis and the news right away. You know it's a Huey Lewis Record. All with all the songs I go really one. What is you lose the new sound like? We were all over the map I i. don't well I, was GonNa, say I think the single does it's got that kind of Crunchy Guitar, but some of the other ones like when young and one while we're young. And remind me why still love you got there more. To kind of back to your seventies. funk days a little more. It's got that kind of country thing was it to kind of feel like doesn't have to doesn't have to sound like power of love. We can do what we want. Your I, mean you know a the the truth is i. just follow the Song I mean. The song is the hardest part of the whole deal. You GotTa have a song needs to be about something. You have to have a perspective and and my ripe old age I mean. It's hard to find an original perspective. You're writing a rock and roll song, so it's really it's kind of like a Haiku I mean. You really are trying to reinvent the wheel here with a pop song and you don't want to cover pass stuff and I've already written a bunch of stuff. So what am I gonNA?

Semi High School Grade School friends. A bluegrass band called Hereford Heart stringers. There were like ten of us, and we would busk it at fisherman's wharf. That's where we really made some money. We had a ten piece bluegrass band, four of whom were in in the band clover, and so they recruited me for clover now her Monica, and they recruited me for clover and I joined clover, and about seventy two. I guess now okay, and by that point clover had made a cup at they'd made a couple of two albums in the sixties Yup with. We're very well regarded in England. For some reason for some reason, they were very well because they. they're Andrew Lodder who was. Who is at the time and are at liberty records inherited those records from fantasy and the record was. Sent was distributed by Liberty in an England and it only sold about nine copies. It was an amazing record because the cover was the clover foreclosure. Guys Kooning John mcfee hair down to his waist. Wearing coveralls like hippy coveralls air down to his waist, standing in front of seven foot, high marijuana plants, and this is when Willie Nelson had a coat and die on. You know this is this is. Early days you know early country rock days will in London that was they just that blew their minds and Andrew Lauder pass the album along to his bands, princely Schwartz chilly willy, and the red, hot peppers, and those pub rock bands, and they really took to clover, and in fact, ridley shorts wrote a song that said GonNa Saddle up and ride away to the hills where clover play, and so we we now weren't clover, and we're playing clubs everywhere, and we don't know you know we don't know any of this. And now we go, we hear from. A Jon Stewart who is from one of the Kingston trio's had it Rhody Neymar Ford and his drummer. Jon Stewart germ was Pete Thomas from Elvis Costello's Drummer Thomas, and mark and Mark for the Rhody lived in mill. Valley and we knew them real well so on a break Pete. Thomas came with Mark Fort because he had mentioned to mark Ford. Have you ever heard of the band called clover and Marxist yet live in my own down so now we go. This English guy comes to our rehearsal Pete Thompson. He says man. You guys have a big following in England. We said we do.

Robinson men within signing us and bring us London, the first you much. They signed Grand Parker Elvis Costello created. Stiff records started signed wreckless Eric the damned all that stuff, and so nick the to pull nick off clover, and let them produce all that other stuff, and for clover they they hooked up with mud langer to the theory was with us.

You'RE GONNA have to introduces because we're building support thin, lizzy plus support. Right I mean this is like change the name of the. Just walk the plank. Saying this is this is the rock and roll version of walking the plank so. Curtains down. We're barely getting together now. Curtain goes up as the audience is going. And then frank comes out and goes. Hi, everybody. Hey. Thin, Lizzy, you'll be right out. I think. But first here's clover. They go. ooh, and his stuff starts flying and and I mean. It was horrible.

They thought maybe we'd just kind of blow over, but then apparently it wasn't going to, so they sent the kids out with their furs, and all the you know the jewels. The gold coins sewed into the lining of the first. My Mom hitchhike basically got lifts from fans people, and and all the way to Portugal and then Brazil with her. She was fifteen and her. Brother was ten, and they moved to Brazil they had a relative there put him up in a youth hostel arranged for them to stay in a youth hostel. and My mother lived there for almost five years, at which time finally her parents. My grandparents got out of Poland because my grandmother had a thyroid condition that. Some sweetest surgeon was the only guy on the planet who knew about this, and the Germans were very interested in the procedure, so they allowed her a visa to leave to go to Sweden to have this procedure done, and they just kept going and went to America. They stated they moved to Through in Massachusetts, which was the textile capital of America because? My grandfather was d'yquem chemists. He had A. Textile Mill in Poland, and you knew all about it, and they were kind of a wealthy, very cultured family, and so now in America is struggling tough to get a job with all the all the Returning Gi's. Money so he and my mother and my grandmother committed suicide together. and. It was a huge blow to my mom. My Mom, who's a commercial artist and was was in New York City. Designing album covers and Walt Whitman's little primers all this doing commercial work and you know well dressed and neat and prim. That's when she. Flipped out, because America had been had been the voice of freedom and everything for her, because when she was traveling through Europe. Whenever there was jazz, she was safe. Because G is G is and Jasmine at SAFECO, so she she was a music lover musical ever to, so she married. My Dad was playing jazz in New York and they marry, and then she reunited with her parents, and their parents commit suicide, so she can draw. My uncle later explained to me. That's when she turned off to the idea of America is a great place and became a kind of A. Bohemian and my dad moved to California. My whole family moved to California nineteen fifty. Three or fifty four and then. She started hanging out with the beat Knicks in the early sixties, and my parents split up. They got divorced in sixty to sixty one. I guess.

Democrat Biden faces calls to address sexual-assault allegation
"Movement a debate is brewing over whether Joe Biden should respond to a recent allegations of sexual assault terror Reid accused Biden publicly last year of touching her neck and shoulders when she worked in the Senate office that was during the nineteen nineties the last month she changed her story to include a claim of sexual assault Biden's campaign has denied the accusations investigations by major news organizations including CBS news have been inconclusive house speaker Nancy Pelosi came to Biden's defense Thursday just days after formally endorsing his presidential campaign I have complete respect the whole me too movement I have four daughters and one son and there's a lot of excitement around the idea that women will be heard and be listened to there is also due process and the fact that Joe Biden is Joe Biden ugh there's been some statements from his campaign not his campaign but his former employees who ran his offices in the rest that there was never any records I have great comfort level with it is the situation as I see it with all the respect in the world for any woman who comes forward with all the highest regard for Joe Biden CVS and political reporter Caitlin Huey burns has been following this story and joins me now so Caitlyn tell us more about this allegation and efforts to corroborate it that's right will Joe Biden himself we have just learned is supposed to go on MSNBC tomorrow morning to address these allegations and that would be the first time in the thirty or so days since terror Reid brought these allegations forward and Joe Biden will have made a public statement himself so that's significant and that comes as pressure has been building from Democrats for Joe Biden to come out and address this now his campaign has said that this did not happen that this allegation is completely false what we have learned over the past few days and have kind of breathe new life into these allegations our reports showing that a neighbor and a brother of terror Reid have corroborated her account and we've we've seen several questions being raised about her account over the past several weeks and months and she had brought this forward initially when she had talked about the way in which five made her feel uncomfortable she did not talk about any sexual assault that came in a later interview us to there have been questions about those stories but because Biden hasn't addressed this in person publicly by the it has raised a lot of questions and so you can see that the pressure has been building on his campaign to address this and it looks like they will take that step tomorrow to house speaker Nancy Pelosi says that she is quote satisfied with the Biden campaigns response how important is her support in this matter well in the absence of a statement from buying himself it has really fallen to women lawmakers and leaders to come to his defense and so significant blows these comments there but we've also seen that this comes against the backdrop of Biden's starting the process to pick a running mate and remember he said that he will absolutely pick a woman running mates of several of those potential contenders like Kamilla Harris any clover shar Stacey Abrams Gretchen Whitmer and others has been out doing interviews trying to talk about the pandemic that's going on and the national response they've been wanting to be critical of trump's response but at every turn they have to also ask answer these questions about these allegations against Biden and because buying himself hadn't been out there answering questions were being asked them it really falls on to these women and kind of makes this a difficult position for them to be N. as these beef steaks are going on it kind of adds another layer to the bad job description really and so that's one element of this I should know that by now has not had a press conference since April second he has done several media interviews where he has not been asked about these allegations that of course will change tomorrow so I want to ask about another dimension to the story as well given given what we saw during the confirmation process for Supreme Court justice Frank Kavanagh could this situation now for Democrats in a difficult position going into November I think this presents a real challenge for Democrats and that's why you've seen many of them kind of urging at least privately buying to come forward and clear the air a little bit more at least provide some kind of public statement because you are right to mention those Cavanaugh hearings Democrats have made a point to kind of try and claim the moral high ground on the issue of sexual assault and harassment in this era of B. two going back to when senators ousted al Franken over allegations made against him that was kind of a a real first step in this effort by Democrats to be able to kind of clear their own tax and declare themselves the story on on these kinds of things and they really set a bar for themselves and so that's why when we come to allegations like this one it does raise a lot of questions about Democrats especially those who served on the Judiciary Committee during the capitol hearings several of them come on harassing the clover shark to name a few are considered to be a potential running mates for Joe Biden so this also raises an additional layer of scrutiny and questions about that and that's why you've seen this pressure building from Democrats for Joe Biden to address this issue now when we look at the statements coming from some of these women lawmakers and newsmakers responding to this they have said that terror Reid has the right to be heard that she should be heard and that these kinds of allegations should be taken seriously on the other hand they are also vouching for Biden's credentials on this as well his campaign has pointed to the way in which he co authored the reauthorization of the violence against women act it has kind of made his public life about this but again this does raise a lot of challenges for Democrats if they don't address this right now and raises questions about how they can kind of keep this issue going in November so this is one accusation against Joe Biden president trump has faced dozens of accusations from women some may ask is Joe Biden being held to a different standard and if so is it clear why it is important to note that this is just one allegation and there have not been any others that have come forward against Joe Biden said that's an important distinction but I think the reason that you are seeing this pressure applied is because Democrats have set the standard for themselves so you can argue that this is something that Democrats kind of have to reckon with when it comes to people in their own ranks I given the way in which they have really trying to kind of be at the forefront of this issue to lead on the issue of violence against women and kind of establish this moral high ground in the era of me too but it's showing the complications of that this whole dynamic is showing the challenges that could arise in in in ways it can kind of backfire and so that's kind of the dilemma that Democrats are facing now but it's important to note that this is a bar that they set for themselves up early on and something that they have continued to

It was by the way selected as rolling stones worst album of the year. But we got stand gets to play on. My father was a Jazzar and when zoot Sims died there was a benefit at a little club in San Francisco and my old man said zoo died. And there's a benefit. It's going to be unbelievable Jimmy.

Oh man that's great that's great. He had never seen me perform yet. My Dad always thought that what I did was kind of like. He called it. The funny hat routine is he was a Jazzar and every jazzman in one song they do a comic deal where they put funny hats over there mutes and stuff. He thought all of rock and roll was the funny at.

11 Trivia Questions on Back to the Future
"What are we doing today? She goes. What do you think we're doing? We're going to be in the house just hanging out coming up with projects for the kids watching stuff on TV and walking from room to room looking around walking out of that room. Go into the next room she goes. We're we're doing that. It's the that's the whole thing so I hope you are finding ways to switch up your routine because I need to get out of. The House is Weird in California. Because it's very cloudy and kind of colder and It was nice for a couple of days. I did some hikes. That was cool. I felt like everything was normal to degree But when it gets kind of cold and dreary it's it's really hard to get motivated to do stuff I keep talking about this Trivia Book that I WanNa right and I should have the thing done by now I only have about. I think eleven or twelve stories out of about fifty stories that I wanNa tell in this book written down and I could easily if I just focused on it. Get the entire thing done which I wanted to do over like the next nine months. I could do it in one month so I really need to jump start myself and right the rest of this book if you're interested in what it's about it's going to be kind of a trivia memoir where I talk about hosting Trivia very interesting scenarios and then I tell a story and Then there's a little quiz based on stuff that happened in the story afterwards so for example one time. I met Harrison Ford Trivia Party. I tell that story and then I have a quiz on Harrison Ford related stuff and then some Harrison Ford inspired trivia team names in different things like that so it's kind of like a travel book. It'd be a bookie by it like an airport and be like. Oh this'll be cool for the plane ride. I could do some trivia. I read some stories from this guy. And hopefully it's a ton of fun and I tell some shark NATO stories in there Some different celebrity encounters. I'm trying to break up the book into different sections. So it's like celebrity encounters a family type stories like growing up family based Trivia Steph Different travelling to different cities so like Tennessee Chattanooga Related Trivia so. I tell a story about doing this show there and then go into Trivia about it etc etc. But I think it'll be cool. It'll be about ten sections of probably five stories on each section each and there should be at least five hundred. Trivia questions in there for you guys to play along with two and hopefully this is pretty cool little calling card for me to give people as an e book or to sign copies of a physical book and get out there and do a little. Bit Of Book Touring. So that'll be something for two thousand. Twenty one. Hopefully hopefully the world is put back together by that and I can make that happen but if you're interested in the progress of that I might launch a website pretty soon for all things related to the book. I have no idea what the title of this thing's going to be but I think it will be a fun little project so be on lookout for that and be on the lookout for eleven questions on back to the future which are going to start right.

What is the difference between a whole house fan and air conditioning?
"We made a bold promise when we left the last segment about how you can install a whole house fan and that might eliminate the need for five solar panels that seems like a you should return on investment that's right I I'd love to have you talk about that because that's just that almost falls into one of those categories of land seems almost too good to be true yeah you're thinking if you arrive thank yeah exactly so you know when when you look at you know how is a solar system designed so you know when you invite us solar contractor at your home the first you know in the one of the things that he wants is your utility bills and so we're looking at is is how much energy how much electricity does your home consume over the course of the year so what in in what we do is we look at what's the difference between March and April in June July August and September what's that spike how much of a difference is there between the March and April bills and the rest of the summer months and that that increase is almost always due to electrical to air conditioning is the energy that it takes to run our air conditioning systems so what we do is we look at what what is it costing you to condition your home and the reasons why we want to do that is we wanted to stand how many solar panels which you need just to run your air conditioning system so if you said Hey I'm tired of these high bills in the summertime and I just want to put in a solar system to handle my air conditioning needs well we we look at that and then we actually determine Hey if you put in a high efficiency air conditioning system yes so you get the attic right whatever it actually is what's the actual savings of doing these energy measures compared to how many solar panels you don't need to buy so if you upgrade the attic how many less solar panels you need if you upgrade your heating and air conditioning system and the air conditioning site how many panels don't I need because I got my ducks you'll look at my system sized right I got a higher efficiency system get the what are these things I'm doing and then like you're talking about the whole house fans so we'll show people what's your maximum opportunity of reduction of solar panels by installing a whole house fan so will actually show you now that that when I say maximum opportunity it is utilizing it for all the whole house fans benefits it's not just the evening time it's the more intimate so understanding that we're trying to use it for its full maximum benefits so you if you invite us into your home we're going to show you the differences in just you know if you get a whole house fan how many solar panels would you not need to buy to get a new heating and air conditioning system if you get an attic upgrade what are these things that are going on in related to how many solar panels that you don't need to buy okay you're you're you know you're you're you bring up a lot of good points here and I've got to think anybody listening right now is really going to key in on the don't need to buy that now like you said if you're going to buy a whole house fan in whole house fans have changed dramatically in the last five or ten years I mean I used to selling a Huey helicopter in your living room now you can barely hear them if you doubt that that bad at all visit the Brower home energy show room at the end intersections sunset and Whitney in Rocklin you can hear one operating it will amaze you really really is quiet but when we start talking about the opportunity to decrease and not by solar panels I think it's insane to start with that you want to encourage people to not buy solar panels but you look at the investment that these people are making in themselves long term and it's it's tremendous it really is tremendous and this is why we tell people to come to workshops because it's like you're taking an hour and a half and you're going to expand what you know about this about this particular topic and how specifically played a place to each individual homeowner because it's not a group thing it's each and each individual thing and how you use electricity and that's why when they do this they will understand why our whole house fan does who actually made the need for about five solar panels because of the other things that can be done right if you're using a for a Allah topper to energy absolutely okay you teach them how to use it to start just turn it on and turn off there's a lot more to it than that that's right they are a manual thing they're not for everybody right so there if you have you know if you have allergies or you don't you know you're already concerned about the amount of dust in your home whole house fans may not be right for you because they're something they're manual right our heating and air conditioning system I can turn it on with my smartphone my whole house fan I can't do that I have to be home to a goal in open up windows and turn the device on so it's something manual M. it's also as you know because I'm opening windows and I want to use this in the morning and I want to use it at night it might be a safety concern you know depending on what's going on in the neighborhood so I got open windows the safety I've got to you know maybe Dustin allergies that you know are an issue and it's something that's manual so if those three things in your something that do you know that are okay with you then the opportunity is fantastic for a whole house fan well that sounds like something that could but you would be covering in your workshop absolutely probably report pretty great detail because if they can't do this as other options they have right now okay if that makes sense and this is something you really want to explore come out to our workshop it's going to be I think Tuesday night in fact while this is right around the corner Tuesday night February twenty fifth our visit Brower mechanical dot com that's Brower mechanical

"huey" Discussed on R U Talkin' R.E.M. Re: ME?
"Who? Okay take notes take notes here we go I. I really love working for a living working for a living. Do you mind not writing right next to the MIC. Sorry I really love working for a living which has a very distinctive like handclapping sounds and album is. That is that it's an early one. I think it's either picture. This or the wind ripping or Huey Lewis and the news and so when we get old so when we when we made the Mister show movie running run Here we go there. Was this idea for the credits that One of the other writers bj Puerto Rican. I had had for a movie. We had been writing a few years earlier where we always thought it would be funny. I feel like a movie has done this since then. But we thought it'd be funny if a song over the credits not only just described the entire movie that you just saw but also described how you felt about the movie that you just saw and like when you were sitting there in running did this. You thought it was nice and so I got together with Warren Fitzgerald. Who's the guitarist of the vandals and also played with Bongo? And we wrote this. I think Jane I wrote the lyrics and then Worn and I wrote this song together working on living working for eleven rather with like Work for a living. Yeah Okay Yeah So you can kind of hear and working for a living. Yeah here we go only hear those hand claps love some good agencies so we we wrote this song for Mister. Show movie and it was all about when Ronnie did this. Oh you thought it was nice. And then when he did this other thing you thought it was nice and then when he did this thing then you thought it was nice fucking stupid and use it. So here's what happened so I turned it in. And it's just it's it's just a Huey Lewis Kinda rip-off song musically in a way but but no mas to that of a feel good song that would be in the eighties. Turn it in and the director said he was like done with us at this point. Yeah but he was like fine. You know what it's the songs fine but Scott can't sing so we have to replace him. What just being a spiteful dick about it right man because he can't sing and like yeah. I can sing like everyone knows that. So but we were just so like like everything had to be a fucking issue so we were like all right fine so we got the. We contacted the band. Ween and the lead singer of weaned sang it. Diener gene or whichever one Which I don't I don't know who was and we get it back and literally I put it on. And he sounds exactly like me and I go. Oh no this is just the demo of missing it. He sounds exactly like me. And then we give it to the director. And he's like yeah good fine and then he puts it in the credits but turns it down Super Low. So you can't hear any of the any of the lyrics and puts it in an apart- where like dialogue is being spoke. Sounds like a fun working really anyway but that relation. That's a fun song. We never put out a soundtrack but That's a fun song. You have a copy of it somewhere. I don't even think I have a copy of it anywhere. I used to have it on a CD and play for people beaver. Like this is fucking hilarious. It sounds like gets buried in the music on Youtube or something. Well you can see the you can see the the credits where but you can barely hear like you can't make out what's being didn't Dave and Bob District that movie I mean you know knows whatever weaned. We never really talked about Wean. I was really into weaned for a minute there the I I liked i. You know what I really liked was twelve country. Great Record Awesome And then I really liked white pepper. Yeah and those were the two that I listened to the most Joplin. Jeez you didn't get into. I thought I thought that was okay. But I I I remember Marilyn Rice cub playing that before every windows ninety five show that she did at the cost or when I first started doing comedy she would put that on the pre show music so you got sick of it no I just. I thought it was fine. I just didn't really devour that album. Like the other ones man was I into that record but then the country greats was great in the navy they they just broke up. Didn't they. Like finally like put a name. I not really sure. The mollusc is a good record demolished. Yeah that's a good one. Yeah but we are certainly not here to talk about wine nor should we be as far as I'm concerned absolutely. Not This is on Huey. Lewis is time. That's right because he's waiting waiting. Yeah we're keeping him waiting to see. We've locked him in a bathroom with the lights off. We have a very special bathroom here at here wolf which has a lock on the outside. That's right that we just like to punish people who love to lock people in there. It's such a funny prank. Because people reach for the lock and then they go wait a minute. I'm trapped and but right before we lock them in there. Were like okay just a quick shower before we do the show. We like we get them naked. Yeah naked outside the bathroom. I take pictures and then push the bathroom. Then they go away where. There's not even a shower in here. And then click and they're fucking drabs. They can't hueys naked.

Yeah I mean with all those you worked with Bruce Springsteen and I saw you guys on stage other other Wonderful Guy Bruce springsteen a wonderful guy I always what were they eating. What is it Michael Jackson and Bruce springsteen eating cheese that's a good question grabbing egg mcmuffins? I can't came to pop cannot be eating an egg mcmuffin. These were the eighties eating going on people. Doing catch my my drift. The I think people have been on about their blow us is that what was going on dude in where was I was backstage with. This is actually a while ago but me and John Mullany were backstage like talking about supplements and I was like what happened. I I like I like how we are. Now we're talking about here where I'm using a vocal steamer before shows you guys were. It was a different time. It was different time but but we are the world was pretty coked up. Well I don't know I don't know not I know I'm I think this isn't a got. You show no evidence of that. Yeah Yeah and the fifth take the fifth of that deal but those were the days you know it was sort of time when people would just give it to you. I mean this you were Rockstar. Waste cocaine was right. What a wasted? What a terrible drug could have been so much better extinguished? What do you mean you want? A new drug is yeah. That's genesis of that song because of that had such a ask wrote that song really really so you did. This is not a Gotcha show. I want to talk about what you WanNa talk about. But I am interested especially because it sounds like you came out at the other side and that was what was it like. What was the first time someone gave you cocaine or even saw first time? I don't remember but it's definitely music music related right. That was how in the world I mean. That was it before he is this when you were was the band before you you've clover and in London we're was sulfate. What does those cheap deep hotdogs? Fresh speed speed sulfate. Yeah it was horrible stuff it burns your nose and just made you terrible right but but I guess I I can't remember the first dry cocaine but I was. I was never a great drug for me but that didn't mean I didn't do it every day. I'M GONNA keep it was. It was just what was what was going but it was a big mistake. But it didn't grab you different right right. chemistries are grabbed. I worked with already laying already would be the first to tell you that that that got in them and he wished he used to tell me. He wishes she could go back and tackle himself before he did it. The first time I see that happen with people with alcohol and even with. I'm not trying to be funny. I know people that the first Chris is my friend. Dwight slade. Who did this? He said the first time he had espresso. He felt his brain. Do something that like brains shouldn't do. That's what Craig Ferguson said about alcohol. Alcohol was like if there's something that when you drink it you you feel perfect. He's like nothing outside of you should make you feel absolutely perfect. And that's that's that's how he identified the addiction so leaving that to you. You're doing a very addictive drug. But it didn't get tooken you in right away. I don't know why it just it made me uncomfortable and I didn't enjoy it but but you know here's part of it was part of the deal and took me a long time to figure that out right. was that something before shows. I mean you were high. Never do it before the show. We're never I never Richard Lewis did coke cocaine until thirty seconds after I got but that's interesting because of the reasons drugs and alcohol problem and what I do. Is that what we do feels like. Okay I've never done cocaine right but I decided to somebody it feels like how a good stand up show feels. I understand why people get addicted to it. Yeah there's something you can start. That makes you feel that Aleisha. Ironically it's just like the textbook says you have fifteen min high followed by to our boring down. Yeah and it's just not it's not a very good drug and then the next day is their depression because you used all your joy chemicals is out I have no idea I mean what happens happens is then of course you know you who said it Best Thomas Jefferson Kaye. Who wrote hey little girl in the high school sweater I remember? Never would've man come clover and we we're flirting with him US producing some stuff on us and it was those are the cocaine days and he said he said he said it perfectly said cocaine makes a new man out of you. He says the only trouble is the new man. Wants to hit that you chase it the rest of the day the rest of the night and then you're dead because you can't ever feel good You know right right but did you. It's kind of like getting a tooth. Didn't work done. Pro Cain same thing. Yeah numbs your mouth when you do the same thing Kinda well but it's not re- revelatory at all. It's not at all right now. There's nothing to be learned learned from it and it's just it's it's just it's kind of a useless drug. I've I've talked about psychedelics. Before and been like the epiphanies you have on psychedelics. Likes what's great about. It is when you come back down are still valid like you'll have like a new appreciation for the fact that we're floating on a space rock in infinity and and then you come back and you'll be like no that's right that's right. Excuse my mother used to say. My mother was a was a Hippie. My mom was a psychedelic l.. Gal and one of the first grateful dead's POWs with the dead palms with Dan. Rifkin the manager and lived in between us and how she was she followed them around and she always used to say. LSD changed the world. And I used to argue with I said no one else did not change the world but it definitely we changed the music business. You can see. I'm sort of Maybe romanticized the sixes. I already mentioned how I love. Ramdas armed awesome. Yeah I do see a collective shift in the consciousness the Beatles and Ramdas would also tell you haight Ashbury when people just started having the psychedelic bathtub filled with LSD. And just party. That wasn't necessarily the best expression of it. It became a party thing but I did see some the interest in eastern eastern philosophy and the interest in consciousness. And the what is going on here did seem sparked by it. Wouldn't you say your mom was Kinda right. Yeah no question. Jerry Garcia Assia used to say and he was Jerry was was an amazing guy was super bright and and he was really the mouthpiece of that whole the San Francisco scene and when when it first happened and you know the New York Times came running out to what's going on here and Jerry is a one hundred waited and he said you need the lawyer you need the guy that can be like. He was burnt. He said it's not really about drugs. It's about rampant intellectualism. Yeah and that's really what it. What if anybody in complete open minded this? If you didn't matter what you were into. If there was somebody who was into something he would he you would give him the time of day and listen to them. That's right that's interesting. It was kind of NEAT Tim leary. LSD was like swallowing nine thousand Encyclopedia Tannock's because it does have its own intelligence to it and it sort of what I think is interesting about it. It doesn't tell you new things as much as it shows you that that by which you know anything like it manipulates consciousness itself and makes you aware of the mechanism with which you are seeing hearing or learning right. So you're learning about learning itself. You're learning like we go around and we're walking and we're wearing pants and we're doing podcasts. But LSD makes you go wrong. ooh And then it goes. What are you looking with right? That's what I think is revelatory if it makes you what what is it a WHO makes transparent your your thought process all the stuff you can. What is very transparent? That's right and what is the GINGHAM. You're like what I have a joke. I do on stage that it doesn't really work because usually people aren't at that place where they want to talk about this. I think but I say like when you sing a song in your head. How are you hearing that that? That is the big question I think you can have is. How Are you hearing? That's the question of consciousness itself sure and the punchline. I say sing happy happy birthday and I go. How Are you hearing that? And usually people don't laugh or even responding to go. Why do you have to be stoned for that to be interesting because if you are stone like the I had that thought on my porch which you just walked back? I don't smoke a lot of weed but I was smoking I was. I really almost got paranoid because I was like. How am I hearing the voice in my head? No but that is I think it's the most important question in all of space time is. How are we aware player and introspection? Right I mean that invites introspection absolutely. So what was the first time you did. LSD was is over. Scott Deals House. I remember and we looked at the in the band. I'm sorry no no. He's just a friend and we listen to the doors album. Oh my God I i. Didn't I had no idea the doors were talking directly to me dad but but early the doors wrote that record the doors of perception percents eleven uh-huh and then we hitchhiked to Sausalito for some kind of a concert and we just laughed ourselves. We just laugh laugh. Laugh Consob Lavin you get the joke of every everything very funny or maybe you get that. There isn't a joke. I don't know what's going on but I know that type of laughter. I just remember being completely completely open minded to every everything was everything was interesting. Yeah everything was interesting. Well that's what it is it to me. Whether it's meditation John or spirituality or sort of gives you a crash course in that but not to be too religious. I hope it doesn't make you uncomfortable. But when Jesus says don't Judge Eckhart totally says a better interpretation of that would be label so what you're doing when you turn reality into objects so you can think about them. Is You strip reality of its shimmer and when you're on LSD you stop labeling. That's true and you just experience everything is one thing that's right. So a Huey Lewis concert or the dust bunnies in the corner of your bedroom. Everything is the phenomenon that it actually is and it earns the fascination that your brain in its in its genius. Your brain is constantly prioritizing. What's important what's not important? It kills the editor right. There's no more editor and that freedom And that's why the the mystics that I enjoy are all the ones that go like whatever's happening it's the Buddhist idea of non resistance. Sure I delayed flight is is filled with as much majesty as getting where you're going and that's what they seem to understand and that's what psychedelics can give you a little glimpse into that liberation liberation. Mind You I. I think you learn that from one one or two psychedelic experiences. I don't think you have to take LSD one hundred times. I completely agree that's I said this a million times. But Alan Watt said after you get the message hang up the phone. Sure so you don't have to keep going back. My wife Valerie had a bad experience with some. Mm some chemicals like this and I was like. You're fine you don't have to keep going right after you've been in the room you don't have to keep going you learn that you'd literally you have the neural. Pathway going I rem I can remember you can remember. You just did what it was like listening to the doors and not judging the world and when you have that Afr- point of reference you can go back right and you and you know that that even today that all that all that still going on. That's right it's just being edited and you can choose is it if you want you want. Just move the editor over here. That's right up. Choose that and that's what I try to remember when I'm in a bad mood I'm tired and life doesn't seem magical and I can't get in touch I wonder and I don't feel any mystery. I go who cares. Get over yourself my ability to pick up the song. I'm the radio. It's the song doesn't mean the song isn't and in the air. I my antenna fucked up today because I'm grouchy. It's still there. There was something I wrote my book. I said the reality of the divine or the mystery is not contingent on on my mood yet so many of us we have a bad day and you go like well. Everything sucks because my experience says it sucks so we need to get over ourselves and even in those moments where you don't feel it know that it's still there. Isn't that fun. No get really good so good I feel like Jeff. Bridges could play in a movie. Is that Jeb Bridge completed royal anybody. He's a yeah but you got that bridges voice. That's funny because you know I'm a big Fan of Jeff. Bridges there's actually is What was it wild heart? Yeah crazy crazy heart. Which is Steve Bruton story right? Do you know Steve Bruton's no well Steve. Bruton was guitar player. Really good friend of my keyboard player and he wrote.
"huey" Discussed on You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes
"It had listened to. Wow well. I'm remembering the line he says it's a it's like a he's talking about nonconformity or something about like we'll see hip to be square was if it was originally written in third person he used to be a renegade it was meant to call attention to a phenomenon. You know that David Brooks called in his book Bo. Bo's and paradise about you know Bohemians dropping back in and becoming and and it was meant to be dropping back into society society. Yeah they coming back and cutting their getting back a job to be square and we're supposed to be funny and the third person and I thought it'd be even funnier if I told in my in the first person that's and unfortunately a lot of people thought it was some anthem for square people which it wasn't meant to be was meant to be but but he got it Brennan Lescot it and that's what that's what that's about and what was interesting is they asked us you know when they filmed filmed it with us the song and of course they paid us so we said Yeah Yeah and then you know the material when you said he did already read something. I knew that scene was going to be gory. But William Defoe and yeah. This is clearly an art relatistic. There's artistic merit here right. Let's let's Iraq. It wasn't just a slasher pick sort of like the song it was trying to parody yuppies. Yeah that's right that's right. Yeah I could see he got it. The in which is a shame because when people dress up Patrick Bateman for Halloween or something. I've heard Greta East Mel. Let's talk about that. You're not understanding. This is is a joke guy. This is like a sad guy. It's not a cool guy. Not Too many browser like unlike unlike rich. And I have girls and it's like murderer error and he's miserable and he's the most lonely person in the world so it is a parody just sort of like your song was sort of a parody. It doesn't it's does it. Surprise me that you responded to the Material Flint's the only thing that was not find with was on the eve of the reason the film. Let's see like a week before the film's going to be released. They to us and say we'd like to do a soundtrack album and I said really my manager comments. That's going to look like so. Let's it's GonNa hip to be square. And I think there was a Phil Collins Song. Yeah and then source to studio. I believe I can't remember source music for the most part so it wasn't a very good album you know wouldn't be a very good. I said well. That's not really fair for fans Steph to buy it for one track. We have to do a soundtrack. He says no no no. It's not part of the race okay. Oh politely decline which we did. Yeah and so now. The days before they premiere the film they issued a press release. Everywhere that said and that Huey Lewis had pulled his tune from the soundtrack because it was too violent of a film and it has hilarious. Not True but they were like winchell friendship they asked him to be in the R Kelly thing and he goes. It's too hot for TV. And he's like I say it's hard for. DV is that it didn't want to be a new documentary you. Ah that is hilarious. That's you know publicity departments but I mean back. This is pre garden state garden. State SORTA changed movie movie picture. soundtracks axe back then. It was like one song. I've done this job before. But it's like you buy the Jurassic Park themed soundtrack fact one would be done on contract would be You're just by to be square and then you're like. Why did I spend thirteen dollars dollars or seventeen hippies square and even worse back to the future yet the the soundtrack album? MCA with power. Love sold five hundred thousand copies. The the next film that was only on the soundtrack next film track track. I mean it was only on the central power the only place you can buy power love on vinyl record. His on was on the the back of the future soundtrack. And and it's all two hundred and fifty five hundred thousand copies. Meanwhile the next movie soundtrack album I think was flashdance or dirty Dan the next two were flashdance stance dirty dancing which did eleven to thirteen million million copies So they hadn't figured that out yet though. All they needed to do is put another cup few couple songs on there right regen boom well. That's that's garden state. It's it's ten out of ten tracks are are hit singles single like it went platinum Bingo. I don't know why it took so so long to know the people didn't want uh who is buying. What am I reading supposed to cheer up and then I have to wade through all these? IRA newborn no disrespect to IRA newborn. I just wanted to show that I knew who wrote the soundtrack to eight Jura because yes I bought it. I renew inborn. It's not a good soundtrack. It's like filler tracks. They can't pay for a real song so they'd right like a fake rock song long and now I'm listening to it in the car. I don't understand I didn't know about the. I'm sure you get this all the time and this is not a morning radio show so it's not really what would ghostbusters. Though I was listening to ghostbusters I didn't know I followed your music and I'm aware of pop culture. I didn't know about the I wanNA mash of ghostbusters. And I want a new drag. It's it it is basically the same song. Couldn't we overlap them. Anyone with I love to tell the whole story but I can't. I've been forbidden. I talked about this ten years after the fact and got sued by it it and had to buy off the no shit what's the statute of limitations on. That's a good question. Someone Stole Story. Yeah but I can't talk about it. I understand I. Colin hated this podcast and I've prided myself on not bringing up the lawsuit. People love lawsuits. It was just interesting but I mean they did ultimately pay for it. I'm speaking now. They can't sue macy's they settled out of court which means somebody came up with a number that you were okay. Hey with which means you know and I get half the publishing to do you really man. That is just a huge loss. See The reason and I bring it up as people should know that you kind of I've speaking now. No one Su Huey silly newes in the news. Don't sue them. I'm I'm saying you wrote that's basically you can sit there plausible deniability but you. That means you wrote two of the best soundtrack songs of all time essentially. I've probably can say this at we are the world. Michael Jackson stood right next and he said that exact same thing did he really know shit. That is incredible. What was it like working with ever? Hey fantastic man. He didn't miss a trick really. Interestingly really you mean a big businessman no no I mean musically we were. We're GONNA in a semi you know. We Sang I they did. The chorus was start all night at the American Music Awards And then we all went to the studio over there. Am I remember the video Michael. Oh had his own room where he was. He had his own area. You guys were all on SAMBA. It was pretty much. We're all the lead into the studio where the performers former well there was no guest no nothing just just us or I think it started about eight at night. I think the American music awards were six probably started nine. They tried to do it when everybody would be town anyway. American music awards at nine o'clock we met over there and then the first thing we did was the courts the parking situation what did you what is the parking situation. Every star in the world is going to studio well. We've just had limousines we just can't Ah Yeah that's very eight. WHO's no parking? I directed the video. The video would have started with the limos. Everyone getting out of the was amazing using night. Man I mean it was just an amazing but we do the chorus which is all of us up on the vent and then that's we. We don't finish that till like and then we take breaks every so of so. We're we're finished like about five in the morning while now we do the lead lines and and so wait at wow lead lines were all of us in the semi circles Lionel and Stevie and you know Paul Simon Kenny Rogers and Bruce Springsteen and etc Algebra and etc.. They're all the way up. And so and they had cindy lauper. Sydney Lop Made of St Perry Daryl Hall. Oh No no darryl. Let's see who am I forgetting. I'm forgetting but whatever what was interesting about it is that there were maybe four microphones and twelve of us. Make kind of making it up. But it's closed so everybody would lean in on the microphone and they wanted. They wanted wanted to do a alive pass because they didn't want to have to punch in. Yeah because they want to keep the ambiance same engineering wise. You don't want that subtle so when you when you hear that on the record like suddenly he comes in. I don't know if other people are noticing this but if you listen certain records you go like Oh they brought the base. Then you hear the room tone. That was in the room with Bass player. So that's smart. They were being real careful if about that so they they start the pass and here comes a time when we eat a certain goal and they go through the through it and then Stevie messes up there are people dying the land. Oh wait so now we go back to start again and go all the way down to one now they get to Al Jeroboam and he kinda messes up and they start backing well. Meanwhile I'm over here on the end with Michael and I haven't even had a shot at my line yet. These stevie wonder's got three three tries already. Yeah now they come up to fix the Mike Humbert. Oh could you just even if somebody screws up. Can you go all the way through so we can just hurts charline when yeah no problem because back in Michael Good Idea Michael says to me and he goes so now because now we newell pass and it's okay. It's seventy messes up. And now we do a second pass all the way round and good. Yes really good. I think pretty much much for everybody and then right when it's over quincy goes all right. Let's do another one and goes into and Mike grabs me and I see him. I see him say Humberto through the glass. Say That one you know and so that Town Bank of comes to me he goes. I quit since. Let's do another one and Mike. They're going to say that one..
"huey" Discussed on You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes
"QE Lewis's new Huey Lewis and the news. Excuse me their new album weather which is out now. I really loved my talk. DOC with Huey I consider him a POW now and I hope to see him again. It was just a real trait. So let's get into it. Enjoy enjoy yeah. You can close the door. Yeah that's nice. It's up to you why I was thinking that it might help with hearing issues. Okay okay. 'cause like Oh great which is really weird. I have this thing that fluctuates a lot. Yeah we're recording so just jump in. Yeah I have now. He's recording recording right now. Man With a steady Cam No it's funny because I know you're having hearing things and my dad has hearing things it's it's different. He's just very auden different. Beat where I'm old. How old are you? I'll be seventy on my next birthday. Okay okay that's you look great. Let's go with that lets you do look great it. They can't see me so that's good. That's you look great. Don't shoot me on that citing a release. I'm just kidding I I've always I don't know I don't think I'll ever do it but my my dad has a hard time hearing me and I always thought wearing the headphones in a conversation like this one of the reasons it's easier to focus for him it would be an hidden. It'd be able to hear me but you're saying and with a hearing aid and it's easier to not wear the cans we'll see it depends on the bottom in resonates with me. Resonates is sort of a medical term for distortion when my hearings. Ah My hearing fluctuates. It's very weird episodically. It happens I hate this. I heard you talking about it on the today show. I hated disease. It's like they don't know what it is. They don't know what makes it goes away. It's sometimes better. Sometimes worse diet might help. I hate it you must hate it. I got frustrated for you. Well Yeah I mean the first you know at first it was suicidal. I mean I was tormented. Well first of all the Tillis was so bad and I thought Oh my God. That's what you hear sound. Yeah what were you hearing. I'm wrong note and so low notes. Resonate the distortion get so bad on the bottom and instead of hearing bone how. `bout bone by bone aches. And so you. You can't find pitch. It's like a Greek tragedy. It really really. Is that where. It's a little too on the nose. You know what I mean like. This wonderful musician has a great career. And then we're going to go after hearing it's too on the nose you know I even even one note is out of tune with itself and it's really difficult to explain but Oughta learn Gajic explained to me that music is is much harder. Listen to than speech because occurs in all frequencies harmonicas and overtones and under you mean for the brain the brain disorder distorts. And I have have a tough time. Picking it up but it's episodic with meal it'll be horrible for a week and then it'll get sort of just bad. Yeah for another couple of weeks but just bad as the good just bats. That's what now I'm having a good day today. Wow this is good and what does that mean it means I can hear what my here my pieces and a and I can hear everything you're saying in this room. I can hear all this conversation. I everything but sing or can i. I mean I can sing. It's your because I love the guy we happy all through your career. You've been a funny guy to be happy because now I can't sing. You know I wouldn't do it. It's it's not that kind of show but you know most people would be like could you ever you know what I mean like. That's what they would. They'd cut to this clip. Then they cut to the snarky host and going well He. I can't sing now so I guess you know what I mean. And then the band plays and they go to commercial. But you're a funny guy and you know that's a joke and you make it yourself but I like that as a compliment. Yeah well there you go that's recap you look great and let's go and you having a good. Yeah and I'm not I haven't given up to be honest. I mean when my hearing is good I can and almost here and I'm going to try again but it's not going to do a GIG. I'd have to book it three weeks at least in advance. Yeah and and I don't know if one of these days I spent a year and nine months now for me and so I've never been longer than twenty days of this and then it might hearing gets so bad. I can't hear I couldn't hear you talk gave you the phone can't hear I haven't watched TV in the year and nine months. Since couldn't you do. I'm not trying to solve your problem. I'm feeling often your problem. You're big enough. That I feel like Huey Lewis. What do they have a name? The fans he heads news news. The newsies I guess I don't know I don't know that we were making it up to them. They're not here. They're invisible is they're floating floating fan. It is okay. We're newsies if you were having a good day and you had a venue I I feel like you can tweet it that day and we like I'm going to be here. I guess a flash mob. Yeah I mean. I've tried twice. I booked rehearsals when my hearing during got good. Good good is fat. A one to ten lose a five or six. Yeah and so I've booked rehearsals and then by the time I came my hearing went to crap. Wow and so I've done tried that twice. Got Everybody there and just didn't work so I'm going to try again but you it's. How long has it been a year year and nine months October? Twenty seventh throughs count. Yeah but it is still somewhat knew I I don't mean into. I'm not being fed so it's been a year and a little bit over a year and a half and because they don't know what it is. It's possible that it could a million different things things they can get better. It could get go away. That's very very true and I have hundreds of testimonials of people who have many as disease which is what they diagnosed diagnosed me with. Don't call it many years. It sounds too much like my ears. I have mayors. Disease does not know how to say here ears disease. You're right you have have. My years does stupid. It's so stupid. I appreciate that you smile that so you finish what you're saying it's called. May I have ah literally hundreds of letters and emails and stuff I mean you know. The empathy from our fans has been unbelievable but also from people who have been diagnosed egg nosed with many years disease. Yeah and many of them it can. It can go away also it can. It can actually get right I. I guess I'm basing that on testimonials only as of tonight S. I know people that had tonight exactly and then just clicked on. Suddenly it clicked off. Villa tuna tended to so tell you it has nothing to do with your ears. It's it's your brain really. That's not an audio thing at all. So the best thing do neurology is just ignore it. This giving you any appreciation for just the fact that curing is a miracle. Oh you know when it goes sideways. You're like it's incredible that we can do this. You just met my baby. Think it's crazy that my baby can hear and sometimes when things things go wonky like I had something wrong with my eyes and I was like Oh shit like I should be really great fall. Everyone's just you must do that all the time. The shows are walking around listening perfectly. And you're like you know what I would do with that. Do yes exactly and I feel an today. Even I woke up the first thing I do in the morning. Scratch the sheet and I I can tell how am I hearing is by how he scratched sheet. Wow and then I have. I have these leaders hearing aids and they have four or five tones on Audet EH. It's an escort and I hear it when my hearings really bad I can't hear any of the tones When my hearings six six I can hear all five tones and right now so I did? The hearing aid plays an F. scale basic. Yeah so you can make sure it's on it. Does that food every time you click it on so I put a quick the battery open. Keep the door open with the battery and put it in my ear and then closed the door so you can hear era so you can hear the to know that people with hearing problems would want the little test. That's your little touch. It is. Yeah maybe because of my right ear which is pretty much dead head. I I only hear the last few tones. So how did this. I'm sure you've told us before. Forgive me but I'm curious so here we are in the present moment and you're saying the only thing that matters right. Now how did they happen. How did he find out well? You know it's a long story. I I was diagnosed with this probably in eighty three. I had a gig in in in mass in at the Hampton Beach. wjr Casino in in New Hampshire And got so dizzy. Had Vertigo was so ill with Vertigo. Vertigo that alone. I interviewed JD plots. Who Has Vertigo? And he was like you use the word suicidal. Obviously I wanNA talk more about because that's heavy and I want to explore. But he said Vertigo would make you suicidal like all. Just no world slips out from you and everything's notes no most people who suffer from in years these verticals the main problem which is funny. Because it's sort of a comedy disease I don't I don't think it should be but people like what are you got Berta like it's a funny disease for something that literally is like a hellish torment. Maybe what it's like. Well you're so nauseous you can't get Out of bed you throw up and then you have to. You have nothing to throw up. And then the remedy is to take a hospital. Authorities Zine or valium and you crash you give them for paranoid schizophrenics and people on bad attitude too I did. I didn't know that I did. Okay I'm just kidding. I only know because I love Ramda's I don't know if you know that sure but you're from the you grew up in that time you told that great story of firing your first base player while he was on asked you know I was like Holy Shit. I forgot that people were just taking acid casually like it wasn't like a big thing it was like I I had taken some acid. He called me and then he fired me. I was like terrible although we still pal I know he was he was. I saw that. He was a documentary about you guys and you still listed as a friend I was like. That's so oh beautiful. I don't want to take you out to give you. We'll get back to you know so and then you wake up and you're fine but I had intense vertigo in eighty three once and and then maybe five years later had another vertigo about and then four years after that I woke up one day and my hearing and my right ear was gone. It felt like I'd got a swimming pool. It was just full. Couldn't clear it. I hate then. That's a subtle. It's a torture. I've had ear problems too recently. I went to to me and my friends went to a beach house and we were like. Let's just have ourselves a nice time. I had Huey a mild pain in my ear. Mild the same exact thing that you're describing grabbing it felt like I had just gone swimming but it was aching and it was kind of I could hear my own heartbeat weekend ruined. I'm only saying that. For Solitary is is a mild pain. I think people here ear ache and you're like hey get over its legs. This is the sort of stuff that is right by the control center. And your head your eyes your ears years nose and throat. Doctors doctors are the the secret bad assets. They're dealing with the stuff that really can bother you and the N. T. guys are the gatekeepers and you get to the auto learn Gama. Just who are they do the cochlear implants and their search with a coke dealer. coakley implant is for people who are born deaf. Or if should I eh if my hearing were to collapse like it's bad and stay that way. Yeah I would contemplate co clear implant troubled cochlear implants as you pretty much much. Kiss Music Goodbye because It people who have cochlear here music the way I hear it when when my hearings messed up apparent as far as I can figure out from from what I've read I see but but cochlear enables you to hear There's a couple of great films out. There's there's there's one good film that just read called but just soccer moonlight Sonata. deftness three motions three movements and it's bringing about a a kid whose parents are parents are death. It's written by their it's made by their daughter WHO's not deaf but her son is deaf and so he gets co clear implants early in the adults had one runs later It's interesting I mean they they can you can cougar..

He says what I said. You sure. He's yeah it's just a challenge for super when you say that all the time now gets goes out and and he starts thing and Oh my God clearly he had shedded it and he was he was just fooling he. He had to shut it out because he played it. And and and what was amazing she starts his solo and he's playing along real nice and all and here comes tower. Power bump bump on it now but don't let it you know and I and the big one. They goes up now and so in his headphones. Eagle is. He's he's playing along but DVD dubiton. Bob and then then you're about I mean it was such a musical lesson watching him react to when stuff the busy he went low he got busy with the was. It was unbelievable watching him. Play one of the. I'm great experiences of my life. I mean those are the most polar opposite things I've ever heard of tower power and Stan Getz it's still and it was a seven minute track and I got the idea of splitting it up up. Make it at first and last cut which was a complete mistake. I should've kept because his solo on their which is part two is the best musical moment on that record by a long shot I mean wow it's just really cool. He just such a great player. I I just thought about something. We gotTA rapid upson. We have one more question. What do you mean? So you're the bus. No because I'm about to good move. Forgot Your Robert Altman film Sir. Are you going to move. No no I was like you know hacked down. You know what I'm saying like your before that Bullshit Louis Her Did you ever fuck with chromatic harp. Because you're such a diet tonic harp player. You're known for that like that. Always carrying like eight different harps and different keys and shit sorry all right sorry with chromatic arm. Yeah but I what I do is play secret. Matic in D minor third position. Why would you laughing at? That was because no one would do that. That's why it's interesting guy sometimes like it's okay. So here's what you know the average I'll explain this in front of Louis and I'll feel real fucked up about it but I'm trying. Yeah so so. A HARMONICA HAS BOBA holes in a specific key. And its diet. Tonic means scale. So it's like C or D or e or F so most so let's take for a bad example like John Popper of blues travelers carrying around eight hundred different harmonicas in different keys so they can play in different keys. A chromatic harmonica is like something that Steve underplays underplays which has a little button on sides can middle But you can always you can play all know their notes whereas the other ones are just eight notes although unless you're Howard Levi right unless you're wow that was cut unless you're Howard Levy a great great or toot toots and Leo. On the original awesome people go real deep anyway. Such a great music last so so so so huey is known as not a chromatic player but a guy who would would did you carry around a bunch of different unharvested. Yeah okay so so so He was the news tunes written a and e. and Sarin see minor. Like there's some weird shit so you'd have to adjust the harmonic. You're playing for the song you're playing so he would carry around. Tell me if I'm wrong. I'm GONNA tell he will lose his business while he's sitting right here that like he would play. He's had different harmonicas in different keys. He's and so if you have a chromatic are Monica the ideas that you only have one xactly now. You should talk but you have to be a much better player than I mean. You're put you know all you need is the chops to say what you need to say. And what is that. You want to say hats. Yeah and there's flog raw is what it really whatever I mean. You know. It's it's it's all creative. Yeah Dude Man man spirit. And I wouldn't mind.

Our League guy called MC fly and his favorite band would be Huey Lewis and the news so we thought how would you like to write a song for the film and I say wow. I'm flattered I don't know I don't know how what writing for film means never written for Film. Don't have any idea I said.

"huey" Discussed on Political Scandals
"When there were only three major bridges in the entire state and the dirt roads flooded every time it rained and because the corporations owned every politician in Louisiana? Everyone except Huey Long. So that was the campaign pitch his clear message and colorful no nonsense speeches one team the majority vote in rural communities he delivered cutting insults else against his opponents accusing them of working for corporate interests and squeezing the little man at one point he got into a physical brawl with former governor Jay y sanders over tax policy. The pair chased each other into a hotel elevator and kept punching until spectators pulled them apart. This this played well with long supporters in the countryside in the cities however his aggressive rhetoric about urban corruption didn't make him many friends ends so when he headed to the Capitol in Baton Rouge after his election. The welcome he received was less than warm to Huey long along. That was all part of the game. He had no problem fighting for what he wanted. That was the only way to get anything done in politics if he was afraid to get his hands a little dirty. He wouldn't have taken the former governor to fisticuffs so three months before he was even inaugurated he was already already hard at work making new enemies in Louisiana. The Democratic Party usually held a conference to choose the delegates the state would send to the national presidential conventions in a time before primaries and caucuses. These delegates were personally responsible for choosing the party's candidate for president so it was pretty powerful job typically the conference to choose. The delegates was run by the states longtime politicians the old regulars as they were called as one might imagine. The old regulars wanted nothing to do with Huey Long. They didn't give him. I'm an invite to the conference but after doing some research he found out there was no legal requirement for the conference to be held in the first place in fact. According to the book's a small Central Committee could be allowed to choose the delegates on its own so governor elect long called a committee meeting of his own at the meeting. Long put together a different set of delegates to go to the national convention. He even had himself elected as the delegate at large entitled to speak for the Democratic Party of the entire state of Louisiana. The party leaders that the other conference were incensed sensed but there was nothing they could do about it. Long had outmaneuvered them and the law was on his side. Huey long didn't deny that his methods were underhanded he openly admitted that he was out to seize as much power as he could. That was the only way he could make good on his campaign. Pain promises free text books for the schools roads. Bridges Public Hospitals a government for the people and by the people of course the people who opposed him didn't count they were just corporate chills. who had it out for the little guy and they needed to go as soon as he officially took office on May Twenty First Nineteen Twenty eight Huey long fired? Hundreds of state employees from cabinet level advisors all the way down onto construction workers. The Highway Commission Board of Health and hospital. Board were gutted in one day he fired seventy three dock DOC board employees and eighty traffic cops and all those open spots were filled with his loyal supporters to keep them loyal. He asked many many of the new employees to submit letters of resignation with the dates left blank. If they ever stepped toe out of line he wouldn't need to go through the the hassle of firing them and then it was onto the legislature long bullied badgered and persuaded as many lawmakers as he could. It took promising a cushy job to a senator's family member or selling government contracts to their companies. That was what it took long would do anything to close the deal and somehow it worked. Despite only having a minority of open supporters in the state legislature long succeeded in getting his men elected as speaker of the House and President of the Senate he then had him appoint his remaining supporters. Too powerful committees ladies and banish his rivals less important harmless positions. These moves stunned the Louisiana establishment they had never seen a governor take so much control with so little concern for decorum. They were taken by surprise again. When long suddenly stopped his micromanagement and backed off long supporters had been valiantly trying to push his bills through the legislature adult literacy classes? AS Roma's building projects affordable natural gas pipelines but his massive infrastructure proposals kept getting buried under mountains of small the bills in routine business long got annoyed with the bottleneck so much so that he told his supporters to stop fighting against the opposition. Let them pass any bills they want just get them off the pile hopefully the other side would reciprocate and everything would finally we start moving more like flying the representatives were all too happy to sit back and blow through the entire legislative backlog. In a matter of hours everyone got everything they wanted. They had no idea how long expected to pay for all of it. But that didn't matter to them. They figured he was making a rookie mistake. That would come back to bite him later. They were wrong. After the mountain of paperwork arrived at Governor Longs uh-huh desk he sorted through the pile systematically vetoing any bill proposed by a rival even small measures he would have supported otherwise like the building roads and schools in rural districts. If it had an opponent's name on it it was tossed and his own proposals. Those he signed into into law. The message was clear. You were either with Huey long or you were against him and if you were against him good luck. The next next several months brought more of the same using every legislative loophole he could find long begged borrowed and stole to pay for his public. Works is program for the most part. His intentions were noble. He was serving the rural citizens who had elected him fighting for the Little Guy. Just like he'd promised but his methods were questionable at best and at worst downright undemocratic and sometimes hypocritical. Huey long had never come from money or power. Now that he had some he was damn sure going to make use of it. He appointed his family members members to high level government positions. He ordered expensive renovations. On the governor's mansion one representative swore that long had the old silverware engraved grave with his name and sent to his personal home in Shreveport he was becoming the corruption and greed. He'd campaigned against but as long as he was still doing the good work. That was what mattered. That was why he'd sees the power in the first place. And it's what was keeping keeping in there. What Huey Long seem to understand? was that power. Real power wasn't about making friends in the capital. It was about making being friends with the voters. Keep the people on your side. And you'll never fall from your throne you might waver a little needless to say ah long's antics got him on the wrong side of almost every politician in Louisiana and I it seemed long had outplayed them all but he hit only taken them by surprise his enemies were biding their time waiting for him to truly crossed the line and in March nineteen twenty nine. He did when he proposed a new tax on the standard oil company. Coming up long learns earns. What happens when you try to tap the wrong well and now back to the story on March Eighteenth Nineteen twenty nine? Louisiana Governor Huey Long convened a special session of the state legislature for unspecified reasons. Most of the representatives showed up annoyed Loyd long had only given them two days to prepare and they still didn't know what they were preparing for their annoyance became outright fury when they learned that this wasn't about finishing up some routine business as they'd expected instead governor long wanted them to approve a new tax unoiled processing long had had it out for the standard oil companies. Since before he even entered politics. Eleven years earlier. He'd experienced Orient Their strong arm tactics personally. An oil well. He'd invested in struck black gold but standard oil refuse to buy any of the oil bill without any way to capitalize on the success. He lost every penny he'd invested long was never really a fan of big business but ever since that incident standard oil had become his enemy number one they had the whole state of Louisiana in a stranglehold they were known for dodging taxes and buying politicians. That was true but long himself was also bribing every lawmaker. He could get his his hands on of course in his mind. Anything was excusable if it was done in the service of the little man longs dogged determination blinded did him to the reality of what he was proposing. Standard Oil was a major employer in Louisiana. And they weren't going to go down without a fight lawmakers I knew that if they voted for the tax the company would spend whatever it took to replace them in the next election after long made his proposal. There was such such an uproar from the representatives that the special session was adjourned until morning. He'd expected resistance but he'd underestimated his opponents uni- that seem night. The president of standard oil flew down from New York to fight the tax on the ground in Baton Rouge. He you like Huey Long had no problem. Bribing politicians into supporting him. As one legislator later reported you could pick up fifteen or twenty thousand thousand dollars any evening. They also had no problem with bullying the day after the session convened standard oil went to the press claiming the new tax would force them to shut down the refinery in Baton Rouge at the time. Nearly one of every three people in the city worked at the refinery free this was a death knell for longs public image. Paradoxically long tried to fight scandal with more scandal after one young representative publicly opposed him. He fired the man's father from the Bank examiners office and these weren't the wealthy big city elites long had been and fighting against they were everyday public servants. The young lawmaker had to take out a loan to keep his parents afloat. Then in an attempt to combat negative press long publicly mocked a newspaper publisher whose brother had been committed to a psychiatric hospital when the publisher fired back that his brother had shell shock from fighting in World War One long double down claiming the brother was actually suffering from syphilis in the public eye and in the Legislature Huey long was losing ground fast. He had poked prodded and enraged the lawmakers for months months and they were tired of it. This was the opportunity. His opponents had been waiting for to defy him to destroy him to to impeach him on Monday March twenty-fifth Nineteen twenty nine. One of long's supporters was supposed to begin the day with a motion for adjournment government of course if the legislature wasn't in session. It couldn't impeach the governor but before that supporter could get a word in. He was interrupted. Erupted Freshman Representative Cecil. Morgan yelled out. That Huey long had tried to have a lawmaker killed according to Morgan. One of long's bodyguards claimed he had been paid to assassinate J. Y. Sanders. The former governor long had fought with an elevator during the campaign. The the speaker of the House the one appointed by long ignored the accusations he recognized another prolong member instead and accepted emotion to suspend the session..
