"He kind of kicked it all off. Officially honoring the life and work of George Washington. Of course, a lot of us pay attention to ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Heck, we just United the whole thing together and made it president's day weekend and here on the Carolina outdoors. It makes us want to pay a little bit of special attention to our presidents from this area. And of course, one of which is the best known down there in Pineville, North Carolina. His birthplace before moving off to Tennessee. He was a tarheel as well. As well. As being the eleventh, president of the United States, James k Polk in light of not having president Polk here to talk to we've got historic site manager, Scott warned from the James k Polk state historic site. Joining us right now. Scott, welcome to the Carolina outdoors. Good morning Bill. And Don hope you guys are. Well, we are doing wonderful. How did we get that right on president Polk right on the button? Got it. Did you vote for him? I voted for him twice, except he was only a one term. President and he had accomplished a lot. In fact, many people call him the most accomplished one term president in the history of all the president's. But Scott, why was he only one term well Bill he pretty much when he was campaigning for office on his platform. He pretty much came out and said right off that he was just going to be a one term guy. And I think number one that's truly what he wanted to do. But as well, his Germany was running against and Rick ley came out early on in his campaign and stated that he was going to be a one term candidate as well if he was elected president. So I think poke felt like that he had to, you know, little probably match Henry clay, but but deep down from everything that I've read that poke truly just wanted to be a one term guy. Well, he was that he got his one term in there and scholars rank him. Very fav- favorably for his accomplishments. Can you tell us some of his primary accomplishments in that those four short years? Sure. Bill really he had some really to your point. You had some really big goals. And and and accomplish these goals while he was president. He wanted to reduce reduce the tariffs to ease the burden a little bit on consumers here in the United States. He certainly was a huge believer in expanding the boundary of the United States from the Atlantic to the Pacific. He was certainly a true believer in to shining seas so to speak. So that was that was very important. He also wanted to take in the territory that was in the northwestern part of the United States at that time. It was on by Great Britain. And again, he saw that as an opportunity to really expand the United States. And lastly, he wanted to really real in all the federal. Funds that were scattered about in the United States at that time. There was no say central deposit for federal funds. I was really scattered out among state banks. And so he really wanted to real that in under one umbrella. But certainly he's he did a lot in his four years. No doubt. Now, let's test you a little bit. What would Henry clay of Ben like oh goodness? That's a great question. That's one of those will what is. Yeah. You know know, that's a great question. I don't know. You know, Henry clay ran several times for the presidency. Never got close to it. Although he gave president Polk a good run for his money. And what I think is interesting is in Rick lake Kerry, North Carolina and Tennessee, the two states that are directly linked to poke. So that to me is fascinating. But it was a fairly close election. You know, what I find it ironic, and I didn't know this you mentioning the banking laws with. James, k Polk and and what he accomplished during those four years. Of course, I mentioned he went to the university of North Carolina. Chapel Hill graduating with honors. I'm sure he would want everyone to know. At least I would if I were him in eighteen eighteen but in one addressed. In part of the dialectic society. He was a member of their in Chapel Hill. He warned that some American leaders. This was him as a young man pre law school, and all that some American leaders were flirting with monarchial ideals singling out Alexander Hamilton of Jefferson back, then, of course, Alexander Hamilton is enjoying a whole bunch of newly found fame in pop culture anyway with the musicals and that sort of thing going out there. But and he was also a UniteR the federal Bank that we enjoyed back then here in the US, but listen enough of that we need to celebrate what's happening with the James k Polk historic site today and another president may be involved that has a Carolina lineage. Andrew Jackson talk to a Scott warn about what's going on today Saturday with that. Well, we're actually we do this. This every year for president's day. It's kind of a collaboration between ourselves the president James Capel status store excite here in Pineville and president Andrew Jackson state park, which is down in Lancaster, South Carolina and South Carolina state park. And we do this collaboration every president stay, and actually we take turns presenting various aspects of lives of these gentlemen's at our respective parks. This year it will be down at Andrew Jackson state park there like stir, South Carolina. The program will kick off at ten AM. And we're really going to discuss the lives of these two gentlemen on how the Carolinas shaped each and just for good measure. We're going to also sprinkled in the third president that is from North Carolina. And that is Andrew Johnson who succeeded Lincoln, but really the focus of the program is going to be about the lives of James, k Polk and Andrew Jackson. Wow. Now, how those two were linked not only in their North Carolina. Berth or their Carolina birth. We don't want to get into all that Andrew Jackson staff north or south. But anyway, born in the wax ause if you will poke in Pineville both of them along with Johnson ended up in Tennessee, how how were Jackson and Polk linked. To course, James k Polk is often listed as a protege of Jackson. But what were their similarities and an how did the Carolinas impact those similarities? Yeah. That is a great question Bill. I think you know, that they're they're shared background. Certainly what was that strongest link. You know, both poke and Jackson were raised scotch-irish, you know, here in the Carolina backcountry. Both had that strong Presbyterian background that lineage so to speak, and I think they connected in that regard. Once they got out to Tennessee, certainly James k Paulk was an adamant. Admire and supporter of c- him general Jackson and really believed in a lot of the same principles, for example, that the federal government should be very limited in the role that it plays with the with the states, and that states should decide their own their own course, really. And so that they had that strong bond that strong connection. And really, I think really there that connection really sprang from both being from our area. Do you get any feedback or blowback there is a historic site manager when president president histories are looked at of course, with President Trump in office. Now, a lot of Jackson's old stuff are looked at. And in fact there compared a little bit does does a president Polk. Fall into any of those criticisms or celebrations of what they had going on compared to today's. President. Yeah. Well, you know, it's so much has been made out of Bill the connection that certainly I think Trump has taken on with Andrew Jackson. But it's interesting from different historians that I have read that. I think really that poke is more connected to Jimmy Carter, president Carter more. So than say, President Trump and the two really the to poke and Carter they were very much. So micro managers. They believed in having their hand in all aspects, I'll operations of government and really both were in president Carter was this way to both. You know care deeply about the office and felt like they needed to be personally involved in everything. And I think a lot of ways that might have been the doing of both presidents poke with his health and him. Yeah. Passing away just three months after leaving office. And, you know, president Carter not being elected to a second. Term. So I think really president Carter, president Polk or more linked than say poke and Trump. Wow. Don, Yeager, we're learning some stuff about the president's weekend and about James, k Polk where we're here on the Carolina outdoors. The outdoor guys are getting education with Scott Warren historic site manager of the James, k Polk state historic site Pineville, North Carolina, Scott, we're glad that you're joining us. We learned a little bit about the Andrew Jackson state park party in program going on in Lancaster, South Carolina in conjunction with James k Polk site, but tell us about other events that happened through the weeks and weeks at the Polk site as well as what you have coming up in may.

"President Trump announced late last night that he will wait to deliver his state of the union speech until after the federal government reopens. It was a concession to speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi who said she wouldn't let Trump address a joint session of congress until the shutdown is over essentially was elected speaker on January third Pelosi has emerged as a formidable foil to the president doubt characterize. That I bring for this as leader of the House Democrats that was Pelosi in the Oval Office last month warning the president during a meeting about immigration, but how does Nancy Pelosi compared to past speakers for a look back at this important job. We're joined now by historian Nathan Connolly co host of the podcast backstory. Nathan do hey and at airs, Ed it's good to be speaking with you again to thanks. So speaker of the house big job number two in line for the presidency and Nancy Pelosi household name today. John bainer, Paul Ryan. But who was the first truly famous speaker of the house? Henry clay who would have been in fact, a bigger name than those folks in this time and justly so because he basically invented the speakership that we know now he said, well, here's the thing. 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. So they can know it's James k Polk, which maybe is not the first name to to leap to mind, but poke comes in as Andrew Jackson's hitman in a way, he basically comes in and make sure that the Democrats which is a new party gets everything that they won. He silenced the opposition..

We have to remember he's a Shakespearean English MacBeth. He loves talk of blood from Shakespeare, and he delivers this this speech.

So as pose I will take the next one and keeping with my theme of liking will one s wipe down what? Oh, the story. What are you? What are you calling me? The not a new lyrics to that song. So this is taken from an article believe on the Huffington Post reporting on a survey, but. Talks about how a new Pew Research Center study shows that God for a significant number of Americans does not mean the God of the bible. The. Yeah. And oh, no. It was James k Polk not Pierce, Jamie. They can't. Yeah. In any case the. So the it was an online survey of almost five thousand people, but only only a slim majority of Americans described themselves as believing in God, quote as described in the bible. That's fifty six percent. So there are more people calling themselves Christian than say that their God is the God of the bible. I actually I don't find that surprising their their cultural. You're like, yeah. I'm a Christian. Oh, do you believe in the God of the bible? No, okay. Well, you're helpful the most popular assumption where I happened to grow up geographically. Yeah. So I mean, I don't want to explore other face. I don't wanna come up with anything on my own. I'm just going to be. I'm just going to blindly sort of adopt.

Those if you just with an audio format I've done some hand waving throughout the story for a highlight. Precisely how I feel about that. Let's see. Just the breakdown here these I just need to make charts instead of doing this. T to the sorry.

He's not happy with the student body and Alabama because apparently they didn't show up to see them blow on who they play the raging Cajun's of. Something Louisiana university of Louisiana educate. Yeah. Something like that. Here is the head coach at Alabama. So let's say I was a little disappointed that there weren't more students at the last game. So and I think we're trying to address that. I don't think they're entitled anything either. I and me personally, I think it ought to be first-come-first-served. And if I don't want to come to the games, I don't have to calm, but I'm sure there's people around here to like to go to the games and wind like four hundred come to because they support the players. So I've never said anything about that before. When I first came here. He used to play that tradition thing up there and everybody was cheering excited and happy, and there was a great spirit high. Now, they don't even share they introduce our players. Nobody even cheers. So. I don't know. Maybe there's. Something else somebody I'll talk about. Maybe I shouldn't talk about it. Maybe already talked about more than I should. So you're all can beat me up for that. If you want, but look our players work too hard, and they deserve to have everything ends people supporting them in every way and have tremendous spirit for what they've done, and they may not be able to continue to do it. We're going to work hard to try to continue that. But you know, there's a part of it that other people need to support them too. And there's got to be a spirit that makes it special to play here because that's what makes it special to be here. And if that's not here, then continue to be special to be here or not. I mean, that's the question. Everybody's gotta ask. And I'm asking right now. There's a lot of specials in there. Here's the problem that Nick, I I'm assuming understand Nick Sabin is the problem accused the problem because they're too good. And the fans realize that you know, what you're not going to lose at home. And I think because you've created a culture of dominating. And so Nick Sabin is asking why are you showing up and where's all the phantom here? It's because the fans have become sort of used to this. There's nothing special about it because you're expected to win and win big. And I think that Nick Sabin has created a dominating culture there. So he's the if you want to it's a great problem to have if this is the worst thing going on Nick Sabin has had to press conferences, where he's talked about the fans the student body, and he also said to the media. Hey, I need you guys to start criticizing my player wins. When's the last time? A coach said, you know, we got to keep him. Humble, I need you. To criticize my players. You're in a pretty good situation. If you're Nick David, and it just feels like he can't go into that press conference with a big smile on his face gone, man. We're killing people I got the best gig. And you know, what everybody's envious of us. I mean, that's really what he's saying. Hey, nobody wants to come out and. Breton everybody. Nobody's excited about this. And could you please criticize my players? Yes. I'm kind of over the angry Nick Sabin soundbite. Well, it's getting a little tired. I'm sorry that the students aren't making you feel special enough coach it feels IRA he was acting a little bit. They're like I gotta act like I'm really upset with you fans. I need to get out there. And I need you to make special every time. He doesn't of these things it always wear your out of nowhere. He has one of these weird rants. I always wonder. What is he distracting us from what what's really going on that? He's saying no, no, no don't look over there. Look over here. Instead, I'm looking over there and being distracted because Dale Earnhardt, jR, just came in so junior come on over. He's stuck in traffic. You're all sweaty here. You have you been running? Now. I'm good. Okay. All right. Let's good to see you too. Thanks. Yeah. It's good to be here. She got stuck in traffic. Yeah. Is a little tougher than than usual for some reason. But you weren't driving wasn't you? Don't drive in New York. We yeah. I don't really I don't know my way around. But usually we have you know, we understand Canada the time that you need you have to have a little extra time. We're planning on getting here about thirty minutes early. But it didn't work out. I don't know what's going on this week. But it's a little slower than usual. Well, we're glad to have you. You look good. You look like you're in shape. Do you work out? That's not right. Jimmy Johnson got me in cycling about a year and a half two years ago. So last year, I rode twenty four hundred miles and. Probably not Ryan as much this year due to having the baby. And and all that. But I like to ride you spin classes now did it once or twice, but mainly just when there's a charity one. Yeah, town, there's the girls, you know, the, the wives and girlfriends of the drivers put those together for charity and so forth, and we may go do that. But. Those are harder than riding on the road in classes because they keep you held you accountable and that spin class man on the road. You know, you shouldn't do your own thing. But you got other people watching you did that to it gets real competitive. I was in spin yesterday was it. It was great the entire all the music was David Bowie. Oh, that's pretty good. It was awesome. The mood of the music key in class, and you get a bad bad DJ in there. It's not good. What kind of music would you have a hard time pedaling too? Probably some slow R&_B stuff. Like that. What would you love to hear David Bowie would be great? And there's a rhythm Acadians too. When you're writing, right. And that's what they're trying to get the one part. I don't like about the Spain classes, the bar the arm thing. I didn't I didn't know they had the R. I didn't know the. Burke your arms while you're in there. And so they're they're like grab this bar, and you're holding it straight out and. And I'm like, yeah. This is not very comfortable the tight bike shorts on. Yeah. Yeah. I have to wear this spandex is part of cycling, unfortunately. And so Jimmy Johnson is the one that got you Jimmy Gabby riding a lot of drivers rabbi on Friday. There's the first early morning practice before lunch. And then we'll have qualified at like four or five and a half news. So there's a big gap of time. And there's a loop thirty or twenty mile loop. Sorry is that your phone? Text alerts. Yeah. Uh-huh. Screaming is that a rooster? No. It was a guy going blue. Did you have a special one when your wife, text you? I don't think so no they all sound the same. So sorry had it. Yeah. Had I silence. Very unprofessional. Yeah. You're a broadcaster. Yeah. You're finishing. I wouldn't expect you to have that that sound effect for text sort of cheers me. I'll get.
