"Jefferson Davis was the president of the Confederacy, the organization that broke off from the United States that they could keep opening their slaves. The idea of giving a pardon. I mean, we're taking down every monument. They have the notion of giving a pardoned posthumously to Jefferson Davis. Imagine if Trump had done that It would be a new round of impeachment, right? Don't you think? Well, Trump actually couldn't pardon Jefferson Davis. Do you know why he couldn't pardon? Jefferson Davis? Is Jefferson Davis has already been pardoned. You know who pardoned him? Jimmy Carter. Jimmy Carter. The icon of the left. Hardened the leader of the racist nation, the Confederacy. They broke off from our union and had a war with us because they wanted to keep their slaves so If we can, after the fact impeach a president and convict him. Maybe Jimmy Carter's a candidate is like this. We're going to go back and rewrite history. No, The defenders will say You can't go after Jimmy Carter is not the president anymore. It would seem to be a that, given that the left itself has claimed. That everything associated with the Confederacy and the old South is bigoted by name, the guy who actually bet over backwards to clear the Dave of Jefferson Davis. And restore him as a legitimate American patriot, as opposed to what he Woz. The rebel who let a bunch of bigots Maybe that would be a candidate for impeachment. But Here's my point. This proves again that liberal stand for nothing. You've been hearing nothing but then, but crying and carrying on and using. What happened with George Floyd is an excuse to redefine American history and portray all of our founders as Terrible people, and every icon and symbol of the south has to be desecrated. Get the same liberals. We're perfectly fine when not that long ago. It was 1978. Jimmy Carter gave a full pardon to Jefferson Davis. So when did these seven Some of these liberals were around that? And they still hero worship Carter. Would have explained about Democrats, You could be the biggest bigot of the world. If you're a Democrat. You get a total past, Robert Byrd said it Democratic leader the meditate Joe Biden was a member of the clad Clan. Jimmy Carter pardoned Jefferson Davis. History of racism in the Democratic Party was that while the party slipped, it wasn't just the always it's contemporary. Jimmy Carter's still alive somehow. Get in all of this revisionism. Not. One person has suggested that he might be a bigot or anybody on a knocked out a statue of him. Even though out of all the presidents who led this country since the Civil War, the only one who decided to restore full citizen retooled The creeps that led the Confederacy. Was again a Democrat. Jimmy Carter. You could say standard to change. But when Jimmy Carter did that the civil War was over for 100 years And there was already the beginning of a new enlightenment about the racism associated there. This isn't somebody just putting up a federal of Confederate flag as a symbol of the past that geographic pride this is the guy that ran the rebel nation. 5 32 news Talk 11 13 of us.

The white supremacist art in the US Capitol

"Now on the sixth of january we saw terrifying scenes in washington dc as right wing rioters and conspiracy theorists incited by the president. Donald trump and other republican politicians invaded the capitol building one of the emblematic images of that day. Taken by mike tyler for reuters featured one of the reuters walking across the second floor of the capitol holding a confederate flag with chilling irony behind him on. The wall is a portrait of charles. Sumner a nineteenth century massachusetts senator. Who was an abolitionist. But it didn't need the riotous to bring white. Supremacist imagery into the capital. Eight statues of confederate leaders. Still stand in the building. So we're going to begin this episode with a special version of our regular feature work of the week and focus on confederate statues and the capital. Sarah beetham is the chair of liberal arts and assistant professor of history at the pennsylvania academy of the fine arts. she's chosen to focus on a sculpture. that was in the capital until recently but is no longer there. It would valentine's nine hundred ninety nine statue of the confederate general robert e lee which was removed from the capitol's national statuary hall on the twenty first of december twenty twenty. So just over two weeks before the riot sarah the images from the capital last week of confederate imagery inside the capitol were so deeply disturbing but that building actually has white. Supremacist imagery in it already. Doesn't it yes absolutely does You know as i was watching the all of those images going by on my on my phone on my on my computer screen You know i. I was just so upset as an american To be watching and worrying about You know our members of congress their staff in that building Seeing that symbolic space be breach on. I was thinking so much about the officers who put themselves on the line to try to take care of. And and Protect our members of congress. My heart really goes out to all officers who were injured in the two who lost their lives on. But of course i was also thinking about The capital and the spaces as an art historian as a scholar of merck and art on and one of the things that i kept coming back to you over and over again was thinking about the significance of all of the art in that collection You have In the capital you have in the rotunda. You have those enormous paintings of All of these scenes from from american history You have the Rotunda with the Freeze going around. It's that is showing all these different scenes of american history as well But then one of the major parts. That i've been thinking about for a long time as the national statuary hall collection on which is a collection of one hundred statues Two of which come from each state on that Began in eighteen. Sixty four And each state has had the ability over time to donate their own two statues to it. n's There are a couple of different criteria for getting into the statuary hall on the statues has to be either marble or bronze. So kind of the highest level of of preserved stature on the subject must be deceased. Must have been associated with that state on and must be historically noteworthy in some way on and subjects are decided on by the states and then donated to the capitol collection with very little oversight by by the capitol collection on end. What i think that maybe maybe more people know now. But i didn't know until a few years ago. Was that a number of the statues. In the capital. Statuary hall collection are actually confederates Either confederate generals The confederate president. Jefferson davis was there on the confederate vice president alexander stevens on with the one that as i was watching those images over and over and over again the kept coming into my head was the statue of robert e lee Which was donated by the state of virginia in nineteen o nine It was by edward. Valentine who was a well-known converts with a sculptor on and it actually wasn't there to be present for the riots because just been removed in december on december. Twenty first of twenty twenty on. And so you know. A lot of people talk about those images of people going by with confederate flags. But i kept thinking you know. This kind of imagery has been there. has been supporting The the capitol for very long time. We talk a bit about valentine before we go onto the specific scope to that. We're talking about because it seems to me to be really amazing. There is this sculptor who long after the deaths of these people was effectively making statues repeatedly of confederate generals. Can you explain that histories y y walls. Valentine's his creating the statues. Sure so. Valentine was a southerner on his entire family was established in richmond. Virginia on there's a museum there today. The valentine museum that includes collections related. To the whole family he came for a very wealthy family. He wasn't actually a confederate soldier because he was studying overseas to become an artist while the war was over but when he came back He saw real opportunity to get involved in confederate commemoration on and he actually produced a number of major statues That's have been in news in the past couple of months One of them is the g. Sant- of robert e lee Lying dead in state on that is at washington and lee university on in the chapel. That's kind of above where his to miss on. It's very striking sculpture for anybody. Who has even before. I recommend looking

"That requires something else. But there's a renewed focus in the wake of the national uprising against this Democrats ism pushing to get them out altogether. We cannot separate Confederate statues. From this history and legacy of white supremacy in this country. Speaker Pelosi this month had paintings of four former speakers of the House who served in the Confederacy taken down. But when it comes to removing the statue's her hands are nearly tied. It's up to the states to choose which two statues they want to send to Capitol Hill. So states all send statues. Not every state has to, but the states of the ones that concerned the statues. And then they're displayed. So that means that we've got states out there that thought, you know what would be a great representation of us. A really racist S O B. That would probably be the best representation of who we are as people. Let's go ahead and do that. That was their logic. They go. Let's do this. And then when they were asked. Hey, uh, is Robert E? Lee? The guy you want representing your say there will? Yes. Yes, it is. Hey, uh, Supreme Court Justice who ruled black people can't be citizens. Is that who you want representing their? Yes, it is. That is that's our guy. Hey, there's been time to correct this. There's there has been opportunity for the states to say, Oh, that's our stuff, And it's not as though you've got governors and and houses and state Senate or assemblies. In our case that have have have just been unaware. Like I would understand if somebody were newly elected to the statehouse. They wouldn't have any idea. Who is representing the state in statuesque form in the Capitol building or in a bust in the Capitol building that I don't have any idea, right? I know now because I looked it up for California, but Otherwise, I would not have had any idea, right? So I don't blame them for not knowing. You know, I don't blame them for not knowing right now. But Once you've been in office a little while somebody brings it to your attention. And still they go. Yeah, I mean, as confederates Frederick Douglass is our man. Somebody decided But I don't have the idea. Somebody was just like, Oh, what a great idea. Let's put Robert E. Lee in there. So can you imagine Jefferson Davis? I'm sorry, said Father Douglas. I'm obviously Frederick Douglass would be an okay statue. Jefferson Davis when I met my apologies, sincerest apologies. The smoke. Can you imagine? Jefferson Davis? Alexander.

"Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee. Some of those monuments have been toppled by protesters. Others have been taken down now by the city. All this action as well as violent standoffs between police and protesters has been captured by the camera of Regina Boone. She's a staff photographer for the Richmond Free Press, a black newspaper in the city. Her parents started in the 19 nineties and she joins us now. Good morning. Hi. Good morning. Thanks for having me Lulu. It's great to have you from your time in and around Richmond these days. What's the mood? It's intense. It has an exhaustive sort of feel to it. But then there's empowerment. There's exhilaration, then mixed, also with anger mixed with determination, so I can't just say one word. It's a mixed bag of emotions. I can say that it's fully alive and ready. The's monuments coming down. Could you tell me what that signifies in your view? As a person who was raised in a household with my mom and my dad, Raymond Boone and Jean Boone, who started the paper that I work for the Richmond free Press. Monuments have always been a part of our conversations since I was a child, growing up the early part of my life in Richmond that they were symbols of hate and symbols of white supremacy. So I've always looked at these statues as being quite evil on DH always heard in my household that they needed to come down. You have been out documenting these protests seeing this moment? Can you tell me about some of the people that you've been photographing and what you've experienced while you've been doing that Sure. I also just want to be clear that it's not just me photographing for our newspaper. I'm doing it along with my colleague Sandra Sellers who's been at the Richmond free press for more than 20 years, and what we see are people who are angry who are fed up wanting change right now. Seeing Children come out, and we love to photograph Children because we hope that when they see themselves whether it's on social media or in our newspaper that They see where they are in history. And one day later in life, they can see that they were a part of this change. So we're seeing a mixed group of people black white Latino next Asian Americans out on the streets together, and this kind of is a rare scene in Richmond. But I'm meeting people like I met a Richmond public school music teacher, and she had her cello out in front of the Robert E. Lee statue, and she's out there playing this classical music that just springs Chills to your bones, and she has a slide show of words explaining the pain that she has felt as a black woman. And so as we see her as I saw her, and I locked her in with my camera I felt her pain. I could identify with it, Richie. No. Is there a different kind of responsibility? Or is there a different lens that you look at this through? Because you are working for a black newspaper in the city and because you are a black woman? So, Yeah, I definitely think so. I think there is a responsibility that we have as black women document in this movement because you know, oftentimes. Our stories are told by other people. Other people who don't look like us. Other people who are not breathing this story every day. Our narrative is oftentimes controlled by people. Who just don't get it and I get it. Sandra gets it. Our newsroom gets it. This is not a new story for us. People are finally catching up to what my dad was always preaching and always fighting for. You know, we've been saying this all along. It's our history. You return to Richmond from a very impressive career to work at the paper he founded serving the black community. You were gone for 17 years. What is being able to document this mean for you? I mean, it's really personal. You know, some days I'm out there and I'm actually brought to tears because I'm thinking about my father and I'm thinking about what he fought for every day. And I'm thinking how as a child as a teenager, sometimes I didn't fully get his anger. He just wanted a better world for blacks, but for everyone On DH. It breaks my heart that he's not here. But on the other hand, he prepared me for this moment. And I believe there are no coincidences that the timing for me coming home. This was meant to be And he's what keeps me going. He's what keeps so many in Richmond going, I think because they knew his passion. He taught me everything that I know in terms of How to stand strong and how to document these moments and why it's so important to be on the front lines. Regina Boone is a staff photographer for the Richmond Free Press. Thank you very much. Thank you so much. It's been five months since the debacle that Wass the Iowa caucuses, that first contest in the Democratic presidential race went horribly wrong, thanks to a faulty smartphone app. But don't write Iowa off so fast. Both Republicans and Democrats are giving the state a lot of attention and money heading into November. Io Public Radio's Clay Masters explains why the state is getting labeled now a toss up bringing up the Iowa caucuses should come with a trigger warning for Iowa Democrats like Pat Copely. I was in shock. I think I was really in shock, and then it just Went on and on and on. Copely, who is a retired medical technician lives in Marshalltown. She volunteered and caucused for Bernie Sanders, who won this county. Hopefully is not excited to vote for Joe Biden. Although she is eager to make Donald Trump a one term president. It's a similar situation she found herself in four years ago when voting for Hillary Clinton. She says Back then she could sympathize with Trump voters. So your basic poor or working, poor or even middle class people were disgusted and wanted just to shake it up. This is one of the many rural counties in Iowa that flipped from voting for Barack Obama twice to Trump in 2016. But this year, the local pork plant and veterans Hospital have both had Cove in 19 outbreaks. Mark Smith represents Marshalltown in the state legislature and took over his chair of the Iowa Democratic Party right after the caucus meltdown. He says. Voters here are energized because of President Trump's record. The trade wars have heard agriculture which is so significant to our state. His selling up to big oil has caused US problems with ethanol. Rural Iowa went big for Trump in 2016. He carried the state by nearly 10 points. Two years later, a Republican won the governor's race here, while Democrats flipped two House seats. Jeff Kaufman is the chairman of the Republican Party of Iowa. We are purple and you know, whoa to any chair that misses that point. That Iowa is a swing state polls here show President Trump and Republican Senator Joni Ernst's approval rating are falling. That may be why last month Ernst Tweeted this video of herself standing next to her Harley, So I'm challenging this grain field to six debates to each month starting in August.

Missing Children come out, and we love to photograph Children because we hope that when they see themselves whether it's on social media or in our newspaper that They see where they are in history. And one day later in life, they can see that they were a part of this change. So we're seeing a mixed group of people black white Latino next Asian Americans out on the streets together, and this kind of is a rare scene in Richmond. But I'm meeting people like I met a Richmond public school music teacher, and she had her cello out in front of the Robert E. Lee statue, and she's out there playing this classical music that just springs Chills to your bones, and she has a slide show of words explaining the pain she has felt as a black woman. And so as we see her as I saw her, and I locked her in with my camera I felt her pain. I could identify with it, Richie now Yeah. Is there a different kind of responsibility? Or is there a different Karan's that you look at this through Because you are working for a black newspaper in the city and because you are a black woman? So, Yeah, I definitely think so. I think there is a responsibility that we have as black women document in this movement because you know, oftentimes. Our stories are told by other people. Other people who don't look like us. Other people who are not breathing this story every day. Our narrative is oftentimes controlled by people. Who just don't get it and I get it. Sandra gets it. Our newsroom gets it. This is not a new story for us. People are finally catching up to what my dad was always preaching and always fighting for. You know, we've been saying this all along. It's our history. You return to Richmond from a very impressive career to work at the paper he founded serving the black community. You were gone for 17 years. What is being able to document this mean for you? I mean, it's really personal. You know, some days I'm out there and I'm actually brought to tears because I'm thinking about my father and I'm thinking about What he fought for every day, and I'm thinking how as a child as a teenager, sometimes I didn't fully get his anger. He just wanted a better world for blacks, but for everyone On DH. It breaks my heart that he's not here. But on the other hand, he prepared me for this moment. And I believe there are no coincidences that the timing for me coming thiss was meant to be. And he's what keeps me going. He's what keeps so many in Richmond going, I think because they knew his passion. He taught me everything that I know in terms of How to stand strong and how to document these moments and why it's so important to be on the front lines.

We did that one a while back. And this in clots has I enjoyed the episode, but was wondering if you'd heard of another theory about the inspiration for the show I was raised in Jennings Louisiana. I live a few minutes away now, but still go there multiple times a week. Jennings claim to fame unfortunately is a multiple murder case titled by the media. The Jennings eight showtime has recently done a five-part series on a mentioned true detective in one of the episodes. My family and I are personally connected to the story. Is One of the victims was a cousin of ours? Anyway I was curious to see if you guys have heard of the connection to the TV series and our case, thanks for your time, Claude. This? This is fascinating now. We did know a little bit about this, but we wanted to explore the case today. It's something that many people have heard of maybe not intimately familiar with and for this sort of episode. We do need to have a disclaimer at the top of the show. It's true in today's episode dives into some pretty disturbing stuff. Stories of true crime murder, drugs and corruption and the episode contains at times quite graphic descriptions of violence and assault, and it might not be suitable for all listeners so to start. What are the Jennings eight in order to answer this question? Please travel with us to Jefferson Davis. Parish Louisiana here are the facts. Jefferson Davis Parish? It's located in southwest Louisiana and and it's a small place. You know a parishes Louisiana's version of a county. It has a little more than thirty thousand residents. The parish seat is a town called Jennings. It's the largest town in the area, but the population is still just a little over ten thousand, according to the two thousand ten census, it's home to some notable individuals. I found one mysterious story here. A guy named Father Eugene John Herber was a Jesuit missionary, and he disappeared in Sri Lanka thousand, nine, hundred ninety during the country's civil war. He has nothing to do with this show today as far as we know. Before the events disclosed in today's episode Jefferson, Davis, which was named after the former president of the confederacy. It was one of those places you probably wouldn't be too familiar with unless you lived in the area, it made the news a couple of times for things like corrupt ticketing by local law enforcement. You know we've all heard that thing. Where if you're a stranger town? You're driving by and you've got plates from outside of the area. Goal Red Flag target on your back. Yeah, and that's happened. you. You've through some of those areas in your travels, baby to Athens or Augusta sure. I would imagine there'd be an argument to to make that. It's some form of profiling, but it's just you know the rules kind of it's. It's like something you should expect probably, and it's kind of difficult to prove to a lake many rural areas. You wouldn't see Jennings often in the national news. In fact, you could live your entire life here in the united. States never know this place existed Jefferson Davis isn't particularly large. In fact, it's not particularly wealthy, either and like so many other places in the united. States these days. It had a pretty seedy underbelly. In the absence of prosperity, economic opportunity jobs you. It is a vacuum that is typically filled with drugs and crime and other types of black market trading, which grew into kind of an open secret and Jefferson Davis. Everyone knew what went down on south main. Street but it wasn't necessarily something that was going to get shut down by the cops. You know on the regular right? Absolutely yeah, it was an open secret especially in South Jennings life in the small parish seem set to continue as it always had and even to continue along a bit of a slow economic decline. Until that is residents began finding the bodies. We're going to explore the initial. Murders or the discovery of the bodies even before they were termed murders. On May twentieth two, thousand and five, there's a fisherman retired. Men named Jerry Jackson. WHO DISCOVERS THE FIRST BODY? It's floating in a canal highway. Twenty six on the outskirts of Jennings as body is identified as one Loretta Lynn. cast. Song Chessen Louis. Louis have been seen alive three days earlier, because of the amount of her body decomposed, authorities weren't able to conclusively determine her cause of death, but they suspected as fixation, and as you'll recall from our previous episode Smiley face murder theory, drowning as homicide can can be a pretty tough nut to crack. It's very difficult, approved us like it's hard to prove that a couples over because you had out of state plates yet. The Court of public opinion was already in full swing, and there's some pretty nasty victim blaming that happens. especially in the media, because according to the residents in the know, Louis was living, what was often euphemistically described as a quote, high risk lifestyle. She was addicted to crack cocaine. She was another casualty of the drug trade running along that quarter of I ten and she had turned to the sex trade to feed her addiction, and at first this was seen as a tragedy, and it is but less than a few months later, residents. And Law enforcement served to recognize that this discovery wasn't just a singular tragedy. It was something else the beginning of a pattern right group of friends hunting bullfrogs, which is a thing that you do in Jefferson Davis for fun They found the corpse of a thirty year old a mess teen Patterson Ms Dean Patterson a few weeks later. flooding in a different canal on this particular victims. Cause of death was a bit easier to figure out her throat had been cut her body brutalized. Two men a Byron, Chad Jones and Laurence. Nixon are held for a brief amount of time on charges of second degree murder. But. These charges were of course drops and they were released. And so we have to, we have to discoveries in two thousand and five. Years Pass on March eighteenth two thousand seven. Another body is discovered that of twenty one year old. Kristen Gerry Lopez. She is discovered an canal and like the Lewis case medical. Examiner's cannot conclusively nail down a cause of death. And like in the Patterson case to people are briefly detained this time. It's a guy named Frankie Richard. who has described alternately as a retired oil rig worker, a strip club owner and A. Along with his niece, Hannah, Connor These two are leader released just like in the Patterson case due to lack of evidence, yes, right and over the next year and a half four more bodies turned up in and around Jennings. All fitting the same. The same. Unfortunate. Kinda forgotten demographic, poor young with a history of drug addiction rap sheets a mile long. Typically charges involving the sex trade or other criminal activities We have Whitney Dubois. Was Twenty Six. Lakonia Muggy brand twenty-three. Who Liked Patterson had her throat slit as well. Crystal Shea in Wa Zeno twenty, four Brittany Gerry Seventeen. WHO's the cousin of Christian Gerry Lopez? Most of these bodies showed almost no signs of trauma and the medical. Examiners ruled. Fixation is the cause of deaths interesting other than the Magi case with the slit throat, so law has to respond again. Jefferson Davis. Parish has a small population this. Death rate this murder rate is. Insane so in December of two thousand eight, the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff's department under the leadership of one Sheriff Ricky Edwards announces that they're forming a task force to investigate what they're now. Openly calling murders as force is referred to as multi, agency investigative team or AIT, the the include local officials, state officials and some feds. Their results leave much to be desired in August of two thousand and nine and eighth victim is found Nicole Gillary twenty six years old. The body is discovered off I.

I'm we're glad that you can finally are you in disc to navigate around. This is why you wanted to switch to or not. There's so many things going on. This is very helpful. Thanks everybody nobody we did it and thanks for nothing game scoop we told you twice. Yeah well until somebody tweeted at me I remember see. There's a thing that happens is called game scoop and show Amnesia and everything we talk about on the show. I at least don't remember we just scout right after this. That's the thing with some off with the version of it. I get is people like tweet me some some funny quote or something that they like from the show and then I'm like what's that and they're like you said it my. I don't have any memory of that. What happens with that too is that it's usually something that I said when they say that to you and you're like I definitely remember saying that I'm like I said all right? Let's get into it. Let's get into it next. Gen Consoles cels their top of mind with everyone. Everyone's excited about him. I like him Your for them. Yeah you think they should happen. Has Several of them at home. How he doesn't they were action? Our friends over at Games Industry Biz ran a survey of eight thousand gamers aged eleven to sixty four across Germany Spain and France and Italy asking them what next Gen console feature is most important to you to the people that took the survey. And we've we rent service similar GM. But I thought this is interesting. It's a pretty good sample size. Eight thousand people in the in in Europe. What do you think is the most the most wanted next? Gen Console Feature Agra compatibility roller. It's not I think that was our whole the result when we were in that poll on our homepage also We Will Dan Stapleton random feature around how backward compatibility is basically the trend for next Gen. It's become the standard was subscription options service on there. That was not on there. It's gotta be no it's gotta be like power it was it was better graft who can forget better graphics there's the fullest hold on. No no I just think it's amazing that people could look at AAA Games today and be like insistent. I just can't can't we can't get here fast. No but you gotTA gotTa War. No but look. That's the kind of quote in like ten years gets brought backup like think about. Ps Three Games compared to now and like there's probably some from games give two thousand eleven. We like Video Games canton. Don't look at Asai said before era is why we need games to look better than this and I I mean they came. Looks Amazing still. There's handles on like a big part of it is like frame rate right right. So it's like maybe in level of detail and quality to your earlier point maybe we've picked out a little bit like the. PS three xbox one the big debates where like the relief relief finite amount of differentiation between graphical fidelity. So maybe that's just a carryover. Yeah well better. Graphics was far and away the most desired next Gen console feature feature in this survey the only other feature to get anywhere close to that level of consensus was shorter load times Eight K. Resolution was less important than motion motion controls backwards compatibility and ability to play physical games so they want better graphics but AK resolution they. Yeah uh-huh deprioritization. Just means you have to buy another expensive television. I don't even have a fourteen. TV At motion controls were important to forty nine percent of all survey gamers and fifty ninety seven percent of console gamers. That's weird really a new over that I thought so too must controllers like the playstation four controller that have slightly augmented motion controls. Charles like those are almost entirely abandoned. Now there's like an spiderman it had a little bit of that but like it's never it's never used anymore. It's really funny to go back and play like older like like when that was a newer thing and launch. PS Four Games. I think it's uncharted for where it's like. You shake the controller to throw the grenade and they have the They always added balance. Beams in every game. Amy Add balance. Meet Him. Yeah didn't need that. But you know you gotta have the controller valid on it Backwards compatibility what's important to forty eight percent of all surveyed gamers and fifty nine percent of the the console crowd and playing physical Games was important to forty seven percent. Surge surveyed gamers fifty eight percent of console. Gamers the situation for backwards compatibility where when when it was taken out of consoles a lot the reason ing was always like we have data and nobody uses it or it's actually it's only the parents correct career. It's a selling point for the parents. Oh they'll get to use all their old games. Okay I can justify the or for a kid to say that to the point that it is such a Trojan horse thing. I don't think a lot of people keep their collections. Enes and Dipak in they. Just don't because we're on Vega cops. I've talked about this on skip before but the backwards compatibility on xbox xbox live ecosystem is such an underrated. Did it's so incredible like those games the fact that you're not booting into some separate weird. Og xbox or xbox three sixty interface. It's like those games are just there and you can buy them and play them like you can buy symphony of the night on Xbox one it's like you're sx. I bought sx three. I just had a desire to play it ten dollars. It was installed and played. It was all beautiful like cool. My Hat's off to them for that. You can donate your former councils who need those anymore. Yeah I'd I just I just do it. A normal person does and they're just sitting under arrest office like this you can just bring them in and put them under your desk. Yeah that's my new under the bed. Yep to just hide it. They're just storage. Now Y- true I was just. I was stunned by how different. These poll results are from from what we would find if we surveyed the audience I think graphics is that it's been that that's been the Super Nintendo. It just sounds so funny to me more pretty better graphics wchs load times like are they really. That long like both Sony and Microsoft are talking about load times and demoing them and then it was. It pulled second here behind graphics. Yeah exactly bullets. It's because they've been talking about them. It's almost like a marketing trick. I I would assume but it. It's dependent on the game in terms of times. Yeah Control was pretty insane. I mean I play mostly I have the choice. I play most P. C.'s. So maybe I'm not I don't know how long. ps four times are for a typical game. These days The lowest priority features were virtual. You'll reality compatibility and hand-held motivational. Sorry Nintendo. Yeah it's cool that after you know I guess seventy years of area or so of video games existing. We're finally solving load time. It's been a while I like. We got through all that stuff though graphics will we're we're still tweaking. I understand that's an ongoing issue. We're almost done with graphics load to previous generations. But but we're GONNA fix ex- load times. That was just low on the list for a while. Low Times weren't a problem. At the beginning. It became a problem two decades. That's true except for like fifty four stuff like that but yeah pc gaming what about when you're waiting in line editor came to play a game time.

Trump can’t win in 2020. But Democrats can lose.

The 11th Hour with Brian Williams

07:16 min | 2 years ago

Trump can’t win in 2020. But Democrats can lose.

"Our next guest says Donald Trump can't win reelection but the Democrats kratz shirt can lose it so over the weekend some of the President's Republican allies in Congress. There are many wasted no time defending him as pressure builds now over over this impeachment inquiry. I think this whole thing is a sham. I can't believe we're talking about impeaching the president based on an accusation based on hearsay. Look Look Democrats wanted to impeach because Rudy Giuliani talked to a couple of Ukrainians and good luck with that. What do you make of this exchange. Presidents Alinsky says we are almost ready to buy Roy Moore from the United States for defense purposes and president trump replies. I would like you to do us a favor though you just added another word no favor though yesterday in the transcript so that's kind of how that went and with us us for more tonight is Rick Wilson Longtime Florida Man Longtime Republican strategist who is soon following up on his first book. Everything trump touches dies with a new Work Ryan against the devil which is due out in early twenty twenty. It is a thrill to have you as always thank you sir so tonight. I am reminded Sean Spicer danced to Saturday night fever on dancing with the stars and Sebastian Gorka is on board a US government plane with our secretary three of state going to Europe. We saw that selection of trump allies. There's a whole population the people in Washington who think this might be ballgame here. There are a lot of very nervous folks right now and they're thinking that they've tried to hide in the tall grass for a long time they play the Magi game when they have to and they quietly whispered reporters. I'm really concerned. My Brow is furrowed. I'm deeply deeply troubled and they understand that there's a point where you can't can't just keep pretending and we're rapidly reaching the point where you can't just keep pretending and you know what was bill bar doing in Italy. Why are they making. These phone calls to Australia. We want more the details about Ukraine Gorkhas probably in Europe pitching fish oil tablets or whatever it is he does for a living now but these guys are all of the peace there this flotsam watson around trump so many involved in this and I hope they're all tonight pondering second mortgages so they can lawyer up. Can you imagine what it feels like for the Aussies as a lover and appreciator of history there we were side by side on the beaches of Normandy what we want from them now a little information so help us help us blackmail a competitor in a political election the US they're trying to extort foreign powers by using the Awesome Awesome Majesty of the President's Office and the powers of the United States government trying to extreme. It's just it's the lowest level thug behavior. I have a dramatic reading from the twitter account of Jonathan Martin with New York Times. It's about politics and you're political party. The squeeze is on Republicans left in high income congressional districts and states here is college plus Weitz. I just love how demographers instantly reduce entire groups of Americans against forty six percent already for impeach and remove fifty two percent for the inquiry fifty-seven percent believe trump thinks he's above the law just one percent percent fewer believe he abuses the power of his office fifty one percent believe he's committed crimes as president so you start thinking wow the Republicans should be very nervous us then. I look at Rick Wilson. Down and trump can't win reelection but the Democrats can certainly lose it. It's an old problem explain. The Democrats crafts have a great gift for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory unless they have generational candidates who are who are who have phenomenal skills they had to in our lifetime they had Barack Obama and they had Bill Clinton who are both naturally gifted political figures. They understand how to connect with people. They have charisma for days. None none of the current field reaches that level of performance and I think the danger that I've seen coming at the at the Democratic Party for a long time. Now is a lot of them. I'm still believe that this is going to be a referendum about policy. Selections a referendum as all presidents relations are about trump. They are all referendum. All the referendum referendum thought in this election is going to be trump or not trump ex future or wife future. If you want is trump's kicking you in the face until all eternity well well then re elect Donald Trump. If you want to argue about policy your re-electing Donald Trump it's you've got trump hands them right now the opportunity to go after him as a man who is corrupt corrupt who was ineffective and who was who has led this country into a place where the reputation of our president as as as an extortionist and a mercenary when our president tosses tosses out a reference to a civil war right. I think that that is again. This is a way to make a referendum on this man what kind the president in this country other than the unless he's Got Jefferson Davis fantasies wants to go out and have their reputation. Be You know re tweeting and praising somebody nobody who who's threatening a civil war if he doesn't get to operate above the law if he doesn't get to be unaccountable in every way and that this is the kind of thing that trumpism has normalized in our country and it's a great danger. Brian Jeff Flake Consensus Hall of fame furrowed Brow Hall of fame member Concern Concern Face Hall of fame member says to his fellow Republicans is there still time to save your souls others remember flake like as the guy who saved cavanaugh right before skipping town not the best guy to make that argument look I would prefer and there it will be a tremendous first-mover advantage for some seated member of the US Senate right now to make that point and to recognize that Donald Trump will drag every single one of them under and they will drown and die politically if they don't start breaking away. This is the problem that nine hundred seventy three and seventy four caught us in nineteen seventy-three. The Republicans were lockstep on Nixon. If you go back it was all it's a media conspiracy against the president. It's liberal elites against the president well in one thousand nine hundred eighty four the voters of the United States decided that fifty four forty nine Republicans needed to go home forever and that eight members of the Republican Senate needed to go the home forever. This is a political consequence of a corrupt president who abuses power right now donald trump and the thing about Nixon Nixon was not about money. Nixon was not about Personal Game Nixon was in the game because that was his character trump is venal trump wants political power so he can continue can you to enrich himself and his family and this is a category above even Richard Nixon and that takes a lot of doing Rick Wilson a thank you so much this survey serves a pleasure to have you on our

"Jefferson. Davis would. And Meghan movement. That dot the king pre-trade down the street. You got the Rosa Parks. King fifty-five is in the right place. And I'm Linda Montgomery, Brian. Thank you ever. And I believe that's right too. I mean Montgomery was one of the most prominent slave trading cities in America had more than people in Montgomery. Walling? Third population Montgomery County. The reason why whites so determined. Any talents to abolish slavery and White House of the confederacy is there and Montgomery has prided itself for a long time of being the cradle of the confederacy. We've all of these Jefferson, Dana statues, and Robert E Lee statues and confederate memorial day's a state holiday with the one of the only two states that still don't have Martin Luther King day as a holiday. It's Martin Luther King slash lobby day. Amazing that the descendants of slaves about the sacrifice that their relatives made in being lynched. And those who who did the Lynch and don't feel good about their parents. That's right. Yeah. That's part of the reason why we felt like we have to change this understanding we have a flavor and its legacy. Most people don't have pictures or optics of slavery that discomfort and because of that they minimize that part of our history. And so given that we also had one of the highest lynching rate in the country. And of course. Integration that Dr king parks, and you until many others had to confront, and we also Alabama has one of the highest incarceration rates in the country, which means that we have one of the highest incarceration rates in the world. So we believe that this needs to happen in the American South. And I'm just so thrilled that thousands of people came it's been a real reckoning was just mentioning that the Montgomery advertiser, which was founded in eighteen twenty nine to advertise selling people. Silicate much of the terrorism and violence by legitimating mob, hatred and bigotry and terror. This week. Coverage of lynchings and it admitted that it was he puts it in this terrorism and committee, that's really encouraging. Jessica Lynch were advertise in the papers. Religion down the street leave church. Good Lynch and go back to keep saying that. Right. That's right. And people would come out have celebrations Sadie, deviled eggs and drink lemonade. And you bring your children and lift him up to watch black people, mutilated and burned and devastated in this kind of ritual way. And I just think that'd be a scar on everybody. No, one can be healthy and the community where you celebrate torture and talent. And I just think we have a lot of work to do is to create a consciousness about this history, which as you said shape demographic geography, ever, man. Today is back in civil rights. Ninety five rows bogged dot king Willem, go back to nineteen fifty four because the work of Linda Brown. Is eight before the same Bill kings immigration, and they were they were the vertebrae again was divorced. And if Rosa Parks was the Knicks, meta frog speaking they were the backbone of the movement willing to go back to the mission four thousand legends describe some of that you talk to me. Who was a teacher in the rocks? What happened? Yes. Yes. Well, that's what a lot of people. Don't appreciate is the number of women who were benched. I mean, people were mentioned for these trivial reasons demand with 'cause he wore a white woman man was because he knocked on the front door of the White House. Didn't go to the back. Jesse Thornton was lynched in Laverne Alabama because he didn't call the police officer, Mr. Elizabeth Lawrence a black woman trying to educate children in Birmingham. Alabama had started a small school and she's walking home after teaching her children with a bunch of white kids. Start throwing stones at her. And she did what any responsible adult would do. She told those children don't throw stones at people, and they went home until their parents, if this black woman had scolded, then in the mock form because they thought that with an appropriate, and they lynched her, and then they burned down her home. And then they came after her son who had the flea the Boston. And this.
