It's about fifty dollars a bottle and in america right now. It's around two hundred dollars and not just for the regular one. Then there's a twelve year. Eighteen year twenty four year in the twenty four year. Eighteen year can get up to be you know thousands of dollars like ten thousand dollars for a twenty four year. Okay it's insane. It's insane how expensive it is. But walk into the store. And idaho and idaho has state liquor stores that means everything's regulated price wise and you can only get you can only get liquor in these stories. You can't get it in a grocery store or to south busy. I think in. Idaho you can get it all. There's no seven eleven or anything you have to go to. The specific store has regulated. It's all regulated by the state. Ohio's the same way..

"Beginning of presidential terms is marked with pomp and ceremony celebrating a new chapter in America's story. But what happens when no one is quite sure when exactly the pages are supposed to be turned? What, if, In other words, one chapter ends before another begins? Is America go leaderless, if only for the shortest of moments. This is the forgotten history of the president for a day. Presidential election of 18 48 was a bitterly contested one. Zachary Taylor, a hero of the Mexican American War, narrowly defeated Democrat Lewis CASS. Incumbent Democrat James K. Polk had decided not to seek reelection and Tailors Wig party was set to assume control of the White House for the first time since William Henry Harrison's 31 Day term in 18 41. Shortest in American history, or was it inauguration day March? 4th 18 49 fell on a Sunday and President elect Taylor was so deeply religious He refused to be inaugurated on the seventh, preferring instead to keep it holy with a day of rest. His decision was final. He would be sworn in as America's 12th president. The following day on Monday, March 5th So, too, with the new Congress. This presented something of a problem as tradition held that presidential terms began and ended on March 4th. There was nothing in the Constitution or federal law that mandated.

"Sarah and repeating it. Top story today at a memorial for the lives taken by Cove in 19, President elect Joe Biden called on Americans to remember those lost to the Corona virus and to begin to heal. By and said this afternoon on the eve of his inauguration that while it's hard sometimes to remember it is how we heal. Vice President elect Kamala Harris, speaking before him, emphasized a similar note of unity. Remembrance ceremony was held with Lincoln Memorial's reflecting pool lit with 400 lights in honor of the 400,000 Americans who have died from the virus. As I conclude my term as the 45th, president of the United States, I stand before you truly proud of what we have achieved together President Trump giving his farewell remarks in a pre taped address. The nearly 20 minute video touts his administration's accomplishments over the last four years, while also peacefully passing the torch to President elect Joe Biden's administration. On Finally, tonight, a presidential inauguration usually is the Syriza gala affairs. But this pandemic is limiting the partying. That will happen tomorrow when President elect Biden is sworn in the Delaware Humane Society through its own virtual Inauguration over the weekend and celebration of First dogs champ and Major Biden heading to the White House. In particular, the Humane Society was heralding major as the first shelter dog to ever call the White House home. The virtual party raised over $100,000 for the Delaware Humane Society champion Major will not be getting a tour of the White House prior to their dad's inauguration. Trump's didn't have a dog while they live there. James K. Polk was the only other president never to have a dog. Thanks.

"You saw the constant barrage of negative criticism, which I think the president rightly stated, was the worst media treatment that any president has received. And then that was just the beginning of it. We saw what happened with the Mueller probe. And then we saw what happened with impeachment. And then we saw it would happen basically every single day of his presidency. And even with that, and even with the fact that the Democrats have been in control of the House of Representatives for the last two years, I think we've seen a one term presidency that is quite possibly The most accomplished one term presidency since James K. Polk in all candor, So I don't agree at all with your assertion that the president should prosecute the individuals that you mentioned Joe Biden, James, Cockney, Comey and Hillary Clinton for two reasons. One. Let's assume that Donald Trump wins this election. And even even though that appears unlikely at this point, if Donald Trump were to win the election, he still needs to be president of all Americans, right. He needs to be president of the 51% of the people that voted for Joe Biden. Let's assume more rightly that Joe Biden, it becomes the more likely I should say. Joe Biden becomes the 46th president, United States Do you really want to go into a Biden administration where we have the outgoing presidential administration, prosecuting him and his political allies? I don't think so, because what that does is it creates a tit for tat prosecutorial narrative. And then you can bet Joe Biden and his attorney general will find some way to prosecute even more of Donald Trump's analyzed that have already been put through the wringer s O. I don't agree with That being the right approach for the Trump administration. I have no problem with Donald Trump pursuing any legal remedy that he can. I think he should. If there's a chance that he won the election, then absolutely. We should have the person who got the most legal votes be the president. But I'm not at all sure that it's the right way to go 808 for 89222. Tell me what you think. Let's say hello to Dennis in Suffolk County. Dennis. What's your opinion on what the president should do next? All right, let's say hello to dot in New Jersey. Hello there dot Hey, side because my phone connection wasn't bad when they picked up. It's got just Scott. Okay, well, that makes a lot more sense That makes a lot more sense. What's on your mind, Scott. So So I thought it'd be I've never called into radio before. So forgive me. So I'm generally considered prompted you to call this one. Scott. I'm certainly glad that you did. But what was it that put you over the top to make that decision? I was in the car and I do with 7 73 regularly actually radio my best moment with 40 years old by do it. May I am radio, Which wonderful? Yeah, kinda guy. Thank you counter to the perception of the younger audience. But where we are out here now identical pretty conservatively. I tend to be conservative. From an economical standpoint, I tend to be somewhat liberal on social issues, right? You know, I had to sit back and I'm in New Jersey. So typically, I vote third party because it's going to a Democrat in all levels. Right, So at least I could vote. My conscience a candidate actually lines of my values, and that tends to be a third party candidate with no hopes of winning. This time around. I'm going to tell you Exactly why I voted for Biden. I disagree with almost everything that the platform stands for. I do I do. And I agree with almost everything you and almost all the commentators on 7 70 talk about from day one of Trump's presidency until the end. Never given the shot all of the resisters. I can't stand any of those things. And to be honest, had there been no Covad Trump wins in a landslide, but we can agree to disagree on this. But aside from the initial actions, Trump took closing the borders despite being called racist and Dina Formic from from Biden. This is an absolute failure. Absolute failure disquiet what actual actions air going on. It's the attitude so many friends of mine who tend to be very conservative, very right wing People I know in Texas Mill, the country, New Jersey, who refused to wear a mask to refuse to cooperate. You're trampling on my freedom's nonsense, all because of him. We should be and could be in a better place. Had he handled this better, and he probably would have won reelection and let's get there. First of all, I agree with your political calculus that the reason President Trump lost this election was primarily due to Cove. It I guess I differ partly from your your criticism of the president's handling of this, I think Did the president do somethings wrong? Absolutely. And anybody that said he did everything right is eyes either delusional or dishonest. However, I think it's very easy to Monday morning quarterback in the middle of a crisis in the after math of a crisis, and we saw Donald Trump. Do you mention the decision to shut down travel from China? A decision by the way. Which was not just not only criticized by Joe Biden but caused him to but publicly belittle President Trump as a racist and a xenophobes. So I think it's very easy to criticize the president for the decisions that he made. But I think if you look at his decision to invoke the Defense production act, his decision to shut down travel from China His mobilization of the public sector and private industry in order to launch operation Warp speed, which will in all likelihood result in a vaccine that is imminent. I think history will regard the president as a bit more favourably, then you did. He also was a steadfast advocate for Getting kids back in school, but he gave the governor's locally the authority they needed to to take whatever restrictions they felt necessary and take whatever attitude they felt necessary for their specific state. I think history will actually be pretty kind to President Trump and his handling of the Corona virus. I could be wrong 808 for 89222, Thanks for the call Scott. And now now that you Broken. You popped your cherry on calling talk radio. I hope you'll make it a regular.

He wanted his entire estate to go to the United States to follow. Found an institution that would be used for the quote, increase and diffusion of knowledge. That was pretty weird. Considering that Smithson had never even visited America, Congress accepted the gift anyway, including his money, mineral collection, library, scientific notes and his personal effects. The fortune was worth well over $500,000 which in the 18 hundreds was a ton of money. Congress used it to create a museum library and a research center today. It's actually several museums, nine research facilities, and there's even a zoo. And did you know that the National Air and Space Museum is the most visited museum in the entire World?

"On the financial exchange a radio network this week in seventeen ninety five president James poll was born in a log cabin in Pineville North Carolina we'll be asking a trivia question about the eleventh U. S. president James K. Polk how many states were admitted to the union while James K. Polk was president our tax number is six three five six six and the eighth correct answer will win a fifty dollar gas card and you play trivia every day here we at this time we play trivia how many states were admitted to the union while James K. Polk was president again the text number here in the studio six three five six six include my first name which is Barry if you have not played trivia in the past surprise announcement at least it was a surprise announcement to me that the NC double a is clearing the way for athletes to earn endorsement money what does this mean call me skeptical but I'm not entirely sure what it means yet okay so here's here's the may surprise first of all what when I saw the headline come across my phone I said well that that's awfully nice you know guys Californian a bunch of other states effectively force this issue California passed a law earlier this year that would allow us student athletes to earn compensation based on their like this by twenty twenty three and they were I think twenty two other states that were considering similar measures in pretty much the premise there was look if California would be the only state where you get paid to be a college athlete every good athlete in the world can end up in California and so the NC double a kind of said okay we don't want that happening so what the NC double a is said is that by January twenty twenty one the NC double a wants to have rules specifying how athletes can be paid not based on their quote participation in sports but in quote a manner consistent with the collegiate model but where they can earn rights fees for their likeness so when a video game in an advertisement or something along those lines and I think it just it when I read this truck I said what's a very small group of athletes that are you know if your division three athlete at tufts you're you're you're not benefiting from this disagree okay there was a case from a track and field athlete about two or three years ago who was not allowed to compete in the NC double a because in high school he developed a line of water bottles that he was marketing and selling actually making decent money off of he was not allowed to compete at the NC double a level because he was using his likeness to market those water well that's absurd so even things like that were previously banned by the NC double way and so yeah it's true that your average D. three athlete or minor sport athlete isn't gonna make millions of dollars well even if I might be tens of thousands things that can help you know just you know pay the bills you're going to college if your name is not in a non scholarship position or something like that yeah that's like if there's real money that's there what are you talking about the star athletes for it for the most part like if you're the second string linebacker at Boston College you're not getting any well in in in here's the question I guess how is the NC double a going to draw the line between someone using their whiteness and someone earning money based off of participation because if I'm a booster for any big college football program I'm saying Hey you know what I'm Startin chucks out as business X. Y. Z. and I'm gonna pay Tucker silver to be my spokes person even though my business is hot garbage doesn't actually do anything what's going to be the line that they tried to navigate there in this is where I think the NC double a is kind of again setting this up so that maybe it's not going to be what we think it's going to be and so I have long believed that the NC double a is the third most corrupt sports organization in the world behind only fee in the I. O. C. just because the NC double a to my knowledge hasn't you know schedule events that have intentionally resulted in worker deaths even but I I just I just don't know if I believe the NC double a fully on this just because they haven't given us any reason to in the past right right you know that's that's kind of where I am and I say this as someone who was it NC double a athlete it is a horrendous organization in all respects of that word G. shares rallying ten point eight percent I'm actually surprised by this increase in the price they're up ninety nine cents trading at ten dollars and six cents you know you write about ten well you you read about their their free cash flow but they still lost nine billion dollars in the third quarter they did the big thing that they looked at that it analysts look at here's their free cash flow from their industrial operate operations in actually came in it positive six hundred fifty million dollars and so that's the big thing that has people you know kind of get a little bit excited about G. E. stock they still did have that huge job reported lost in earnings actually revenue does appear to be stabilizing at least so you know that kind of gives you a sense say they may be able to find a way out of this but they're still good amount of questions here we'll have the answer to your trivia question and the winner when we return to the financial exchange the financial exchanges alive on Facebook so make sure to like our page and watch the guys break down the latest on the market every day beginning at ten on the financial exchange a radio network Melissa Daniels newsradio nine twenty one oh four seven FM here's what's happening police say a report of a gun it hope high school in Provincetown on Tuesday was unfounded university of Rhode Island is reporting video voyeurism incidents at a couple of residence halls another hearing was held yesterday over proposed lottery contract extension and Brown University as getting research grants to address the opioid abuse crisis in sports the Bruins stop the sharks five one and the Celtics take on the box tonight at seven thirty get news twenty four seven on demand it news radio R.

"His will conservative and internationalism arm diplomacy under Jefferson poke Truman and Reagan one of the joys of Henry's of fresh conversation about presidents who have not been appreciated because they combined arms might have with their ambition for freedom and at the same time diplomatic gestures are maneuvers is James K. Polk of Tennessee who is seen as a step child of Andrew Jackson and then in between in between the Whigs a north and south in between the Democrats north and south in between those who wanted to annex or conquer Texas in all of Mexico and the Mexican war with those who wanted to embrace taxes the re an accent will start here with the expression of James K. Polk as a conservative internationalist does he satisfy professor this combination of force with diplomacy when it comes to dealing with his own Congress and acquiring Sabah acquiring taxes for the United States in eighteen forty five yeah I don't think there's any question about that I don't think I I eat maybe that that there's a president in history in American president history who who better integrated the use of force and diplomacy than poke Reagan may have come close but I think Pogue was still the master here's what he did he resolved early on to secure he made the commitment to secure both the Oregon territories and the southwest territories before he was even inaugurated he laid out four of his objectives to foreign policy objectives and those with a foreign policy objectives he then set up an in initial envoy to Mexico to and go she ate the purchase of the southwest territory now you company that diplomatic mission with Mr Slidell was the main diplomatic envoy here company that diplomatic mission with the threat to Mexico that if you don't you know make some make some if you don't pay attention to these negotiations if you're unwilling to negotiate with us we may in fact sees the territory militarily and he sent an army under Zach tailored to the board he sent them and put them close to the disputed area not directly in the disputed area initially but then eventually move them to the Rio Grande which was the disputed area and and and the Mexicans attacked in that began the war when these when these diplomatic gestures were rejected by the Mexicans he then escalated force but each time he did he then hand a diplomatic solution available now this helped him I think when at the end of the war we wind up in Mexico City now we were in a sense we were suppose centrally in charge of the entire country he had dispatched about ten months before that his last his fourth and last envoy Nicholas stressed to negotiate as he was marching with the as the American army was marching towards messed Mexico City to negotiate some kind of a solution again saying the Mexicans look we want simply you know this nor the northern territories New Mexico California and what is today part of Utah he tells the in outrageous violates his instructions in the late in late eighteen forty seven and the pope fires him but first stays on one eventually negotiates the final treaty the treaty of Guadalupe hill dog he doll go reports to Hugh poll in January of eighteen forty eight that he has a treaty now could have easily said I don't want your treaty I'm in charge of Mexico City I'll take the whole country and of course there was a strong movement in Congress at that time to take all of Mexico but pope had eight and an extraordinary sense of timing and an extraordinary sense of a conservative internationalist in this place he knew that his influence was going to wane in time he knew that his military leverage was going to win in time he knew that he was the president of a democracy and he'd already lost the elections or his party lost the elections in the fall of eighteen forty seven he knew we wouldn't be able to hang in there for very long so he made a deal at the peak of his military leverage got what he wanted and within six months American forces professor will turn back is to act to explicate how wonderful illustration of conservative internationalism James K.

"Am sure it does. It's like when people visit our city, and call it hotlanta. Yeah. I would say this is even more agree. Just probably people running around. They put a burden on the yes, and Portland has this national reputation at least for being a very progressive city, right? Face tattoos or cool. Marijuana decriminalized the streets are paved in marijuana. In fact, in Borland, it does have a particular smell. And in general, people would see it as sort of a bastion of left leaning culture. Yeah. Super chill. You know you can you can buy a sandwich. I song. In Portland, literally doesn't have to be a good song. It's just a song a song or a little soft shoe. Or maybe you got a one man band. Dick Van Dyke situation going on did see a one man bamboo knows there. Did you see that guy just pulled that out of my of my year? Well, you are correct. And there are one man bands in Portland. There are also numerous amazing things amazing bits of history. One of our co workers, a guy named Nathan is actually from Oregon. And he assured us that Portland is more of a cultural exception to the rule. Nowadays, wearing my Timberline lodge hat right now. I bought at the Portland airport. And as you might imagine Portland airport, not a chain restaurant incite my friend, all of the shop sell handmade artistic goods. I bought some really cute little pieces of pottery there for my mom. That's sweet of you. Man, and that's really dope hat. It is a great hat. So it's safe to say that you and I are fans of Portland and would travel there again in the future. Sure, at least modern Portland. Right, right. I don't think I would want to travel there in a time machine to be passed. Yes. Yes. Today's episode is about the origins of Oregon Portland in particular when take or as it's called here in some of these articles that we're looking at the Oregon country. Yeah. Oregon country might sound weird to some people. What is Oregon kept seeing it? And it was a little weird sending. But I figured it out with my internet sleuth skills. What would now be modern day? Oregon Washington state, and I'd Aho was all kind of cluster together in this one big old chunk of land collectively referred to as the Oregon country. Yeah. And this was, let's see way back in eighteen eighteen. Right. The US and Britain agreed to jointly occupy this seems like a odd couple situation. And then I think the US started getting a little greedy and being, you know, we kind of want this for our own when it turn this into some states. Yeah. Because the British wanted to be in the area in Oregon country, mainly to engage in the first trade, and James k Polk who was an expansionist president. Right. Really wanted to make this our own and not not share not go with the Brits anymore. So that. That alternately happened they negotiated. They decided it wasn't worth going to war over the Brits. It anyway. And there was some back and forth. And there's a really great slogan that the northerners used it was fifty four forty or fight, and fifty four forty was talking about the coordinates, the latitude that Mark, the northernmost part of this territory and during these negotiations, the US is first proposal was that the territory be cut in half. Right. With that, with that border at the forty ninth parallel, and the British rejected it. And so the expansionist many of whom were anti slavery northerners, which is super important for this part of where they are the ones who called for more American aggression, get out there, be a big dog fifty four forty or fight. It's hard to say you did really well with that fifty four forty or fight is tough. When you really get it right though, sense of accomplishment, as I'm sure they felt when they finally arrived at a pretty decent deal with the Brits, where they divided the territory along the forty ninth parallel pretty close to fifty four. I guess what's the forty though fifty four? Forty minutes divisions of the grease a decimal. So this is where we end up with Oregon needing to become a state. And when you become a stay, what do you do you have to have a state constitution? And as we know constitutions are not generally made overnights. They often reflect common practices goals or even existing laws that a community has practiced or written down beforehand, and Oregon, had its own pre existing laws in eighteen forty four they passed something called the exclusion law. And this was this was enacted by the provisional government of the region at the time. What, what did the exclusion law do? Yeah. Was this guy named Peter Burnett, who was like kind of Oregon trail kind of blazer, I guess, Peter Hardiman, Hardiman, Vernet, and actually spoiler alert, we're going to dig into him in a little more detail. Later in the show for shadowy big time for shadowing Bush, here's what this dude is just to give you a taste of what his medicine was, like he was a former slave owner and as a really crazy resume did all kinds of interesting things, but by all accounts, a alarming dastardly racist nearly so this exclusion law, that was enacted sort of pre proper government and constitution basically allowed slaveholders to hold on for dear life to those slaves for a maximum of up to three years. And I, I was like, wait is this is this because of emancipation? That was decades later. This is eighteen forty four that wasn't until eighteen sixties, right? And I realize, oh, no, Oregon outlawed slavery in the territory. Right. But here's the thing is going to go. That's nice. What a great bunch of people. Okay. But, but there's more so yeah. This grace period of three years. But then all of those freed black people work required to leave. Yeah, that's the thing, the government of Oregon passed this. Exclusion law of eighteen forty four and in it, they did place, a ban on slavery, with a requirement the slave owners, eventually free their slaves, but they did this with the understanding that any African American who remained in Oregon, after they were freed would be flogged, whiplash and forcibly expelled from the country if they're were caught in the Oregon country, again, within six months, then the punishment would be repeated. And then eventually the law was amended in another version to substitute forced labor, so essentially slavery, instead of flogging and then it was repealed in. Eighteen forty five. So this community was so racist that the didn't even condone slavery. They were so such white supremacist data's didn't want him around, like at all. And there's, there's some language we'll get into a second, but I just want to point this out of the that law, you mentioned about flogging, that was called the Burnett lash law. Because our buddy Burnett was so into this, that he wanted to brandit with his own his name was like a signature thing. And it required that declared rather that offenders, who refused to leave would be punished with, quote, not less than twenty or more than thirty nine stripes, and that would that would be a cycle that would recur every six months until they left. And fortunately, this lash law did get amended and repealed. So as far as we know today. Day. No people wherever lashed as a result of that law. But this was just the first of three different laws likeness that all were meant to ban people of color from Oregon country which, again at that point is like Washington, Oregon, and part of Idaho. A huge swath of land. That's right. And we're getting some of this information from, from places wounded. My favorites was a Washington Post article by deneen l Brown, Colin Portland van blacks Oregon's shameful history as an all white state, or as I've seen it referred to as an all white utopia kinda right after at least there's this weird history of intentional communities and utopian thinking in Oregon. So it's not, not all examples are racist. But this definitely was the idea for the people who are supporting this concept was that somehow society would be better if they all. Felt like if they also identified with the same ethnicity. Now, did they have the same sort of racism that would be common? In the north east at the time wherein, for instance, Italian or Irish immigrants or children of those immigrants are still considered not white enough. I don't know. But what was on the books was specifically targeting people of color in eighteen forty eight this provisional territorial? Government has the law making it illegal for any quote, negro, or mulatto to live in Oregon country, but they did have a provision for people who had native American blood which they weirdly referred to as half breeds. Despicable people. They are big people. But it's interesting that all it takes just get a little white in. You really didn't like black people. Yeah. That's what it boils down to. All right, then. Yeah. So it's state time baby. Here we go. What do you need to make a state as established earlier, yet you need? You gotta have some dirt gotta delineation between your dirt and the other people's dirt, yet to have some people in both sides. Oh, that you can differentiate constitution. There we go. Yes. In eighteen fifty seven the government of what will become Oregon was working on its constitution. They did a couple of things they grossly plagiarized constitutions from other states at the time. That's gonna be some of that constitution is on exactly great work poetry that you, you know, pilfering from his look down upon it's sorta like stealing a boilerplate release form. Yeah. I think that's a very good point. Let's get something cleared. View may be competing to be the next account executive at heart media..

"The John Batchelor show. Eternity street is the new book from John mock MAC, far Farag are he is Howard Lamar professor of history and American studies at Yale. He's also Los Angelino, and he has told parallel stories of violence, Los Angeles is a product all that wealth. All those people that's a product of violence violence against the people who live there the first Mexican the Indians than the Mexicans then people who travel to it also violence, a visited by the United States of America on the people the California who live there. We're going to tell that violence now because it involves some names that are American history heroes until you see it from Los Angeles point of view, John we come to the land grab. That's a polite way of talking about annexation and the list is long. But the plot is straightforward. They want the people behind this in the administration and at Jackson wants it. But then James k Polk, especially. Once that they want an excuse to take all of California and the excuses war with Mexico, but they send agents there. I the name. I write down here is Thomas Larkin who is he and how was he working for the United States government? Thomas. Larkin was one of those traders we talked about. He ended up in Monterey. He had cut. You came there in the early eighteen thirties established a trading house. He also was in correspondence with the leaders back in the states and not only business leaders, but political leaders as well and in eighteen forty five or forty six he was delegated designated. A console an American consul in modera-, and then some months later secretly made a secret agent. His task was to make friends with the California elites, including the politically lead and convinced them that their voluntary success the session from Mexico and annexation by the United States would be the best road to their future. Prosperity. The man involved in hiring Larr. Arken is most famously the secretary of state Buchanan who becomes the president right before the civil war. So we're volved in the highest reaches of democratic politics. Democracy is the dominant party at this point in American history. The Whigs are fragile the Republicans don't exist yet. However with they're going to with a man of canon also has a navy secretary and historian, John. I'm I'm I celebrate one of the most intriguing historians ever George Bancroft higher amend by Archibald Gillespie as their secret agents. So you'd have to say at this point, they mean, they mean to regime change. That's what they're setting up here. They're looking. What you're setting up here is the there are two aspects to California annexation one. We might call the the designs of the Pacific fleet. So the Pacific fleet of is there to protect the whalers of New England whalers who have moved into Pacific Ocean in pursuit of Wales. Way oil. They are active in on the Latin American coast of they frequently stopping California. They're also to protect the American writers who in California. And starting eighteen forty the Commodore of the Pacific fleet is given explicit instructions. The United States is interested in acquiring California. They're going to try to purchase it from Mexico, but if the Mexicans resist, and in fact, there's a conflict between the United States and Mexico over California or for any other reason if there's any indication the California in Mexico, California at I'm sorry, the United States, Mexico are moving toward armed conflict. The Pacific fleet is to immediately move on California and take it over as an act of war. So that's the one side of the other side is the of of the exercise within California. And that is what we what I've called the Texas game. And this would follow of the pattern of what happened in Texas. And that is American. Settlers come in. They settle within foreign country this part of Mexico, and then organized a rebellion within the colony or within the province and. In a coup d'etat, essentially take over the province for the United States. Larkin is really part of that Pacific fleet design. He's there to try to mollify the California's to convince them that the fleet is going to protect them from Mexico. Give them a chance to be independent and enjoy the resources of what would be a new American state. Meanwhile, Gillespie who's also hired as a an agent is sent to California to agitate among the American settlers there because there are a number. These are the people who some of the people were deported eighteen forty of to organize this Khuda top from within. Now, it may seem contradictory. In fact, it is contradictory that the president in this case president who was elected in eighteen forty of forty four and crops. Eighteen forty five poke would on the one hand encourage the Californians to come over voluntarily and on the other hand sent an agent to agitate among Americans there to overthrow the Californians. But the fact is all of their contradictory poke really didn't mind what he was really in intent on was acquiring California one way or the other. It didn't really matter to him which way which way was successful another American hero enters into. This is John C Freemont who leads the California battalion mounted rifles. Also with Delaware Indians. I know it all mixes up American history. They're supposed to be topographical engineers, but they are a groundforce of coming overland captain Stockton of the American fleet leads an effort to March into Los Angeles. When he sees its unguarded, August thirteenth eighteen forty six is the date. I have here. Correct me professor. They play. Hail Columbia as three hundred Americans enter L A and hoist the American flag. So they're trying to present a coup being complete. But it's not the the California are going to fight back. That's right. They. Want to mention another incident that happened before under Fremont's watch our free as you say was a captain in the corps of topographical engineers. Of course, he was famous in the United States has the Pathfinder had already been sent out on a number of missions to explore the west and his mission in eighteen forty five was a stencil to survey the the eastern slope of the rocky mountains, his secret orders which were apparently given to him or early and not in a written form were to immediately travel the entire distance Pacific coast over land and be there. Just in case. Something happens that opportunity to acquire California. Now, the man we mentioned earlier Golez speak who sent California his mission is to find Fremont. And. Tell him that the president wants him to go ahead and organize the settlers in that Texas game. So that's what he does. That's called the bear flag revolt. And that happens in the summer of eighteen forty six soon thereafter, the American fleet does arrive in modera- of and Commodore Stockton combines his force with the the with free month's force who now is not not only the corps of topographical engineers that you went with including those Delaware Indians. But also a lot of American settlers that he's recruited in California, the two forces converged on Los Angeles and they claim Los Angeles. And that incident where they're playing hail Columbia in the plaza in LA in August of eighteen forty six, but what they they leave fee, in fact in charge of Los Angeles, and he turns out to be a tyrant, and we'll tell the story of the battle next. When we come back eternity street violence injustice in frontier, Los Angeles. We're just telling the theft part will get to the lynching part next. John Mack Farag is the.

I'm gonna give you these committees and legislation will go to those committees. And they may never come out. I'm gonna give you thority those committees to determine what we ever talk about. And I will actually choose on those committees. And so he basically controlled is kind of traffic cop all the legislation that came before congress knows early year. So he's speaker three different times during eighteen teens and twenties when all this is up for grabs. And he basically grabs a whole lot of the power. So it is a powerful position. And you'd think that being number two in line to the presidency that it would be a launching pad to that job at only one speaker has ever done that. Yeah. And people might guess for awhile they'd like to have this at a cocktail party occupant was an answer.

He silenced the opposition..
