Modern Oracles and Astrology
"Welcome to kids myths and mystery signer host. Kit chrome with this podcast. I begin a month long examination of modern oracle's and their methods of divination last friday. I mentioned how not all forms of designation demand a psychic or even a sensitive one. Such form of discrimination astrology as common popular astrology is today is complex but as mentioned does not rely on the reader having psychic abilities instead relies heavily on planets and stars. Initially you might scoff at the idea of pulling any kind of prophecy from the heavenly bodies. But let's take a look at the history of astrology. Mayan astrology is a variation of mesoamerican astrology. One of the most forward thinking kinds of astrology of times. Mayan calendar's comprised of twenty day signs and thirteen galactic numbers. Making two hundred sixty day. Calendar year the mayan study of the moon planets milky way son was some of the most accurate pre telescope astronomy in the world. Mayan astrology goes back to around the fifth century bc. Then we have england stonehenge. Gerald hawkins work on stonehenge was first published in nature magazine in nineteen sixty three following analysis. He had carried out using a harvard. Smithsonian ibm computer. Hawkins found. Not one or two alignments but dozens. He had studied one hundred. Sixty five significant features at the monument and use the computer to check every alignment between them against every rising and setting point for the sun moon planets and bright stars the position say would have been in in fifteen hundred bc so has astrology around for a while no doubt but let's go back to present to find out how astrology works. Here's a simple answer. Astrology works on many levels at the simplest level. It is not unlike a complex clock the uses the motions of the planets in a similar way to the movement to the hands on the face of a clock. Now let's dig a little deeper. Astrology is the belief that the alignment of stars and planets affects every individual mu personality and environment depending on when he or she was born. Astrologers print horoscopes and newspapers that are personalized by birthday. These horoscopes make predictions in people's personal. Lives describe their personalities and give them advice. All according to the position of astronomical bodies a survey conducted by the national science foundation found that forty one percent of respondents to their poll. Believe that astrology is very scientific. This begs the question astronomical bodies affect our lives. Solar flares cost electro magnetic disturbances on earth. That can disrupt satellites and even caused blackouts. The position of the moon costs us ocean tides. If you're a fisherman that position of the moon can have a significant effect on your livelihood. The solar wind causes beautiful aurora and sunlight itself is the main source of energy for our planet. Still the question. How is strategy as a tool of divination astrology uses a set of rules about the relative positions and movements of heavenly bodies to generate predictions and explanations for events on earth and human personality traits. Some used astrology to generate very specific expectations. It could be verified against outcomes. What does science have to say about astrology. Simply that it's not scientific yet. Hundreds of thousands of people have been influenced by designation nation provided by astrologers millions across america. No there astra logical sign and read their horoscope in the newspaper. Daily get this j pierpoint morgan. One of the world's greatest fight answers was suspicious of accepting planetary advice but ended up applying astrology to all of his personal affairs. John adams famous second president of the united states refused to sign the declaration of independence until the exact moment planetary indications were most auspicious. And this will really get ya jay. Jacob stout jeff pierpoint morgan and seymour cromwell comprised a bracket of three successive presidents of the new york stock exchange who utilized astronaut.

Fresh update on "john adams" discussed on Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis
"We have people in our land in high places who are co opted by the foreign powers. Is going to take powerful words and powerful organizing action to stop them from doing what Stalin did to the most productive farmers in the world. Ah, 120 million of them in Ukraine and roll Russia starved to death because Stalin took their crops. Just Steve The urban areas. Yours. Reaction played. I have Christian what You said. I do want to point out that both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, uh, took notes about the effect that the previous grand solar minimum hand on agricultural production and you can see I've compiled In the history of their at ice age. Former dot com slash history of votes John Adams and Thomas Jefferson writing about, UM, record cold, very detrimental effects of the corn crop. Frost, even throughout the summer, But so it is true that you know, just as we are now having to deal with sons, output diminishing and the effects on agriculture. So too, did they then and they wrote about that, and that's I think that's helpful for us. Understand? Because these are natural cycles and we've been through them before we can get to them again. But as you say, and I think you're absolutely right. It's gonna take some powerful ideas and that's certainly what I think This is the most important conversation that we could be having right now. You know, it's Cornelius said before the break. It's gonna take both the food and the guns, and we put before if there weren't Just as there needs to be a gun in behind every blade of grass to make America a completely well defended nation. So too do we need a victory garden? Whenever he helps to keep us all well fed and you're right. We're in a food war. Right now. We have had China's eat out our substance by exporting tons and tons of our food prices that have been pressed down by the USDA.
America Is in a Dark, Deeply Divided Place: Inauguration Day 2021
"In july eighteen. Sixty four some fourteen thousand confederate troops to just six miles within sight of the us capitol dome for president lincoln. It was a rude shock after all. This was a year after the union. Victory at the battle of gettysburg and the confederacy seen near defeat. Just the nicotine. Seventeen thousand union troops dispatched by ulysses s grant arrived and pushed the confederates back. Well today joe biden. Sworn in as the forty six president of the united states twenty thousand national guardsmen will defend the same capital this time from enraged citizens. It's impossible to understand how we've reached this point unless we look beyond the last few weeks even beyond the election to pre existing conditions such as our decades-long thinning out of civil society. The most recent lawlessness at the capitol reflects an escalating lawlessness that spans political parties religious affiliations age brackets social classes. And so we're faced with. The question will a militarized america. Be the new normal. Will the armed troops protecting the citadel of democracy today be patrolling the streets of writing cities tomorrow will the blatant failures of our institutions and our leaders continued to fester to this explosive level of distrust chuck. Colson often said that unless people are governed by their conscience they will be governed by the constable when people were unable to govern themselves. They then face a choice. Between order or continued chaos. Most often people will choose order which inevitably means the loss of freedoms the freedom to peaceably. Assemble is impossible to maintain when assemblies frequently turned into riots. looting or sedition. The freedom of speech seems particularly vulnerable today when big tech world so much power and decides like twitter facebook and instagram. Already have to crack down on political speech they deem offensive or dangerous and just last week representative alexandria. Ocasio cortez spoke openly about forming a committee to rein in our media environment. That's something that should anyone who has ever read any dystopia novel ever and our second amendment freedoms are most vulnerable. When used as cover by mass shooters are insurrectionist. Perhaps the most consistent refrain from america's founders is that our national experiment would ultimately prove unsustainable unless there was a virtuous citizenry. our constitution simply cannot ever knows who refused to govern themselves. John adams our second president said it most clearly quote. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It's wholly inadequate to the government of any other and yet americans are becoming increasingly. Immoral and irreligious are shocking. Lack of conscience on display in rising numbers of both deaths from despair by that. I mean addiction self harm and suicide and acts of desperation meaning violent acts riots and even self mutilation pursuit of identity or sexual pleasure. Look we pump poison ideas into our hearts and minds and then call it entertainment. We pump lies into our children and then call it education. The result is that america finds itself in such a dark deeply divided. Play place that alexander solzhenitsyn accurately described in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight speech at harvard. We have he said quote very little defense against the abyss of human decadence such as the misuse of liberty for moral violence against young people such as motion pictures full of pornography crime and horror even the strict. This laws sits alternates in might add even twenty thousand national guard. Troops will ultimately be powerless. Defend people against such moral corrosion but the situation is dire. But it's not without hope as chuck. Colson often said despair as a sin. Christ is risen from the dead and god and his gracious goodness has revealed to us what is true and what is good. He's given us his word and through prayer. He makes himself available to

"Empty a bus that careened off the roadway in the Bronx overnight and was left hanging off the University Avenue overpass is still there this morning. Let's go live to the scene in the Highbridge section of the Bronx, and WCBS reporter Sean Adams, Shawn On that bus is right in front of me. And right now I'm watching an extremely delicate operation. So this is a tandem bust that you know it's basically double length. It has the accordion middle. It's articulated. S so this is a University Avenue where it goes over the cross Bronx. It's unclear how this happened how the bus lost control. But when the front of the bus blasted through a guard rail The first section of the bus knows died and space planet on the road surface below.

"We welcome you back. Great to have you with us on a wednesday afternoon. We'll get back to the calls and john adams coming up shortly on the latest in knoxville. Jason is in south carolina. Hey jason how you doing jason. We are doing great. Thank you happy. My question is why would i not move the game from monday night to like a friday or saturday for the national championship. Well the reason they won't put it on a saturday because that weekend is already locked down by the nfl wildcard. He would do better on friday when people don't have to work on tuesdays can't do any worse. Thank you paul jason. Monday night has not really been your. The game has been on a few nights. When when alabama. I wanted in two thousand nine season. It was on a thursday night then. They finally decided to go monday night and here we are. Let's check out. Well who do we have now guy is up next. Hey guy you're on the air gap with doing. We're doing well. Yeah four actually. I q sat out the one. You sponsors there Raises bank your own business with longtime veto. Say they're a great thing okay But when two thousand seven when they came the tuscaloosa my memories craig. Did you predict winning three national championships. No what i did. I was i was on a local. Tv show and the host asked me what i thought of the higher nick. Sabin win a national championship in four years and he laughed and cajoled and thought that was insane. Of course i was wrong. He wanted it in three years. But i never went once one the first one There was never a doubt he. I didn't think he'd win this many though. Yeah and this is something. I couldn't remember exactly what it was. So what did you know back. Then that nobody else knew well. I don't know when when i knew was new. Nick sabin which helped. I've gotten to know him when he was in at lsu. Talk to him a few times. I had a couple of friends who are on his staff and just knew how single minded he was in terms of not only football but but especially in recruiting so. I think that was debase book. But hey where. When i knew was not exactly a state secret mean. We all knew he was a great coach. We just didn't know that. In the current era of college football you could do what he has done when six titles in twelve years. And i was on with mike greenberg earlier and he made a really interesting point. He said you almost no nick. Saban's teams by the losses versus the winds because most alabama fans really fans of college. Football can recite once. You get past that transitional first season. It's not hard to come up with. Which games alabama loss because there have been so few true. Okay paul appreciate it. Thank you thank you guy. Thank you very much nice of you to call. Let's check in with sean in indianapolis. Hey sean good afternoon. Good afternoon paul. How you doing john i am doing. Well really appreciate the call. Yeah i appreciate you taking my call so wanted. I think that the playoffs should be expanded but not to eight. Maybe two six. And i say that because i don't really i subscribe to this opinion of. Hey we need to I'm tired of seeing the same few teams and we need to limit these teams. And and that kind of segues to this article about you know tapping nick. Sabin on recruiting and You know Forcing him into retirement. I think that if that happens that will be The end of college football as we know it because essentially you're saying hey you don't have to work hard or try to get better. We'll just limit the competition so that you can win. Well first of all sean. You know there's a big difference between with somebody puts in a newspaper article in reality and the reality of anyone. A infringing on nick sabin or anyone else's rights to recruit. A competitive team is not going to happen. I know it's not going to happen but the thought of it is absolutely ridiculous and Preposterous actually that they would even be printed on the paper so I really like the way college football setup. Today i enjoy seeing You know the same teams because they they represent excellence so if you're tired of seeing the same few teams do something about it. Don't go complain about it. I haven't heard anyone try to go to court to stop in until this year. The patriots from going to the nfl playoffs. Because they want six super bowls no exactly right. It's the same principle it you know and everybody not everybody likes the patriots. But i think you could respect the patriots. Listen i'm a michigan fan. I i know what it's like not to to to be doing well right but that doesn't mean i don't want to work to get better and and and get to the point where we're competing for those whatever games national championships at some point. Well thank you very very much appreciate. It is in florida al. Go right ahead. you're on the air now. You there let me see if i can try this again. Yeah there you are okay. Alex try one more time. Good afternoon okay. Jj not al. My my eyesight is failing me. You know what. I am just going to go to calls at random. People say back in the days when the top forty. You just said your name and what's wrong. You wanted to hear. That might be. That might be a better way of doing that. Let's try john who is in south carolina south carolina. You got it collar. Great to hear from you thank.

"Couple of years ago. We're heading to a break. Appreciate your patience this afternoon. Jackie cheryl a little bit later on and more of your phone calls when we come back. You're listening to the paul finebaum. Show podcast robin is up. Next in indiana here robinson. Welcome to the show. Thanks for taking my call. A question about The strength of jeremy pruitt the. I'm curious as to who's driving the offensive loss of the is busy giving cheney free reign or they're just working around the strengths and weaknesses of guarantee. I know you've talked a lot about sam men and you'll one of the great things he did was bringing offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator. Is jeremy capable of being the ceo making the decisions and flooding staff. Run with it. That's a great question and it's always. I think the biggest challenge for a newest new head coach. He's never been there before to understand a you either give up too much or you. Don't give up enough and i would agree. I think the guarantee no experience Experiment is over. And i understand it a little bit but it just seems like they're trying to do something they're they're not capable of doing. I mean tennessee. You know we're supposed to have this great offensive line running backs It seemed like if they had stuck with a little bit more at times they wouldn't have the turnovers. Wouldn't have the the ineptness in the passing game that they've had don't have the balance that they have. And now you know. He's trying to move the team another alabama ten years ago. He'll on defense and run the ball or they actually trying to point right now. I don't know it's a good question and it is a. It's a conundrum but i appreciate Very much your call. How about gary. Who is up next. Hey gary all how you doing pile and have thanksgiving seemed to hang out. I've got a couple of comments. I'd like my i I live in north alabama at a lot of tennessee fans around here Not all of Grays with yonne phil fulmer. They don't hold him in and same as you do They feel like said That fail was hard to make a choice for Coach and When you're but nah possession you might show us Not not that he. What didn't have pressure on him but that's his job and I don't think being given enough time to make that decision To make the make all the changes and his staff and recruit players he needs to recruit. I think he will become a good head coach. And my other comment was About kyle trask and mack jones. Either one of them if they lucky enough to win the heisman. Why destoy would that be A year or two ago. Nobody really ever give them a change of play and Both of them is is excited. I think beyond expectations. Well thank you for the call. You'd be well and have a great thanksgiving. Mike is up next in indiana. Hey mike welcome. Hi paul. hey i. I'd like to say i'd like to thank you as a life long. Big ten fan for your coverage and expertise. The dsm sec voice. Enjoy your show. thank you very much. thank you. so i've always loved it ordure on. But i have to ask you is lsu akin to baylor. The internet has accused lsu of a culture of sexual misconduct in a cover up and says it has to go. What do you know about that. Yeah mike a any more than that's out in the public domain. It's a pretty creepy story. And i hope and trust that they'll get to the bottom of it and if anyone did cover it up and i mean anyone. They should be fired allowing this to go on in any environment whether it's a college campus or in the workplace is simply unacceptable.

"Not so much of this administration previous ones there have been huge turnovers in that aspect of ut as well would you look back through the years and for example Right now phillip. Fulmer is He got a contract extension for two years Why would you. Why would you do that. Well what if you had to fire him again. Then you'd have to pay off two more years on contract I mean sarin. Jeremy pruitt does it. Make it You don't want phillip fulmer hiring the next coach They'd also phillip fulmer and we get so retention bonus each year our retention bonus. We're not talking about nick. Sabin here he gets he gets money just for not leaving the where would he go. Who else would hire him. I don't think he takes gene his places. Sec network analyst gene does a great job so that's just money thrown away and tennessee's really good at and that has dad is kind of underscores the problem with the football program right now. It's hard to make you tired. Cut pruitt loose because of the money and you go back. Two years of mismanagement financially. That's kind of why you're in this predicament. John you there i was. I was there in knoxville. I think it was in february right before the pandemic speaking to a group and usual mucketty bucks. You know them all well down on the river and i was blown away by remember. This is like late february. But i was blown away by the by the unanimity of this group by the solidarity behind jeremy pruitt and how i was told by all of them that the administration's behind the fans are behind him. The boosters are behind the peop- the people that matter are behind him and that really wasn't all that long ago it was nine months ago and i realized the season has gone awry. But is it really that bad. Well when you think about it. Paul when things go bad fans will on their memories and they go back to previous Episode of a ut football. That didn't go well so going into the season tennessee's on a six game winning streak. When did the first two games this year but prior to that it was too in five in pruitt second season before it went on that winning streak against a lesser schedule and i give them credit for winning. Those six consecutive games. Wasn't that easy. But before that at the start of the season it had lost to georgia. State the twenty five point underdog and defeat qualifies as one of the worst losses. Tennessee football history. Then it blew a game against byu in the final minute the next week so now when things go bad again i think fans look back and think you know this guy couldn't even beat georgia state partenia row program couldn't beat georgia state and its season opener in two thousand and nineteen. That should've have told us something. So you look at how this season has gone. And you're right. I mean it does seem like a drastic turnaround but so has the season been you go for a team. That's from a team. That's on an eight game winning streak to one. It's on a five game losing streak with a when a good shot of six games lost in iraq since it plays schedule at least the play florida on december talking to john adams and john. You're right schedule is ominous with am in florida. Maybe if he pulled an upset against one or two it would change things but if the season goes according to chalk three and seven with that december nineteenth win against vanderbilt. Which i'm sure will will not garner a good rating wherever it is shown What do you expect the off. Season to be. Like for jeremy pruitt. Well i think what you're going to have is one of the most apathetic fan bases in ut history because you would be bringing back a coach not because the university or the fan or the halfway department will this guy's gonna turn it around their positive sides here. Even though the season didn't go well you better things are coming. You can see it No you just have a fan base that well we have to keep this guy because we don't have the money to rid of him. And so other possibilities i think what also contributes to this perhaps would contribute to the apathy is. What if you thought you could hire hugh freeze. i mean. he's yeah he's got some baggage but these are desperate times. Baggage doesn't matter now He's a proven winner. And i think he would take to. Ut so but if you can't make that change and you go through an off season There's just not going to be much enthusiasm for the season to come and go into reflected in ticket sales as well Now tennessee schedule lightened up considerably next year. Look at four. Non conference games all at home. I think that it can win and So you could win seven or eight games with that schedule. But i just don't see where we're fans look ahead and say we're building toward a not at all. Yeah i think you're right about hugh. I sat in his office once. John and ole miss and he was telling me a story believe he his wife had just gotten married and they drove past neyland stadium and looked into the stadium and he said i said. Can you imagine me ever getting the head. Coaching job here. It would be my dream job. And i is it. Is it still. This was a couple of years ago and he kind of looked at me with with glassy eyes. Yeah there's no question he was he would take the job. I'm not sure about south carolina. But he would take the ut job. Yeah thank you. I think south carolina completely different. Deal i if i were in his position. I wouldn't make that move. I would hold out for something better. And i think tennessee would be better may but see then you get to in situation. Think about this all say you you go three and seven and then come back next year. Gets too much easier schedule win the game. You're supposed to win your seventy five or eighty four. You go maybe get back. Go back to the gator bowl and beat a mediocre ben. Big tintin If that's your ceiling if that's what you expire to get. Maybe that would be okay. But i don't know if tennessee would make a change after going with with an eight win season so then you go back to. Then you'd look at the two thousand and twenty two season and I just don't. I don't see drastic improvement. What is is there. A bad jeremy pruitt deal graham dissect his coaching ability from eight e mean. What's what's he good at. Because i mean certainly not communication. No that's In fact i get a lot of emails on that very point. They wonder about his ability to communicate with players Because fans listen to how he communicates with media how he communicates with fans and then they apply that to wonder how he communicates with with players. And sometimes that's a That's how reliable assessment So not communication one of the things. I don't understand about jeremy pruitt. I think he really knows defense He was even coordinator at florida. Stay when winter national championship. Defense coordinator at alabama when it went to the national championship even coordinator at georgia when it was pretty good under mark so he proved he he you know. He seemed to have a really good reputation for defense. But i'm not seeing that with this.
We Gather Together - Creating an American Thanksgiving with Denise Kiernan
"So denise. I want to start by asking you to cover the early history of thanksgiving were all taught. From a very early age that the pilgrims landed in plymouth and shared a feast with the native americans living in the area. How close is that accurate. What's so interesting about thanksgiving as we celebrated versus thanksgiving as it has been on this planet for much longer. I'm always fascinated about how traditions and practices evolved the concept of gratitude and giving thanks has been around basically as long as humans have walked the earth. The word thanksgiving and even the practice of thanksgiving has been around for centuries before even conception of the united states of america. Yes the pilgrim's did land at plymouth. Yes the pilgrim's did have a meal with the woman. Og indians was. That proclaimed a thanksgiving now. When thanksgiving became a federal holiday in the united states of america was that event singled out as the reason for establishing that holiday. Now i want to be clear. I am not putting anything out there. That other people haven't said for a while and what's really interesting. I think is that every year. You'll see these. Hey here's the real. This part of thanksgiving and i think part of the reason. Is we tell these stories. We tell this. Essentially two kids in school and then later on when they get into high school or college or whatever we don't necessarily re contextualised and give them the full story so every year it's almost necessary that we keep trotting these things out and contextualisation of history is so important to really kind of look at everything that went into a particular event and thanksgiving again. Like i said you know. I am not the first person to come out. And say yeah. That's not exactly how it happened. But what i'm interested in. And what was one of the linchpins at making me want to do. The book we gather together was the ageless. Timeless concept gratitude view stevens. I'm and author here in madison wisconsin. And i'm thankful for men. Women working press in use of the people. The you don't have a great thanksgiving. There is an alternate true factual story about thanksgiving and gratitude and harvest festivals. And all of those things. And how. The actual holiday came to be in america and evolve and erica so i thought was an alternate entry and wouldn't that be fun and i'm interested. How thanksgiving celebrations changed in the seventeenth and eighteenth century. So a lot of what thanksgiving is rule out of things like harvest festivals. Which again go way. Way back thanksgiving's were often religious practices in various parts of the world. You would set aside a day sometimes for fasting and humiliation as they would say to give thanks for could be particular event. When i was working on we gather together. I came across some really interesting articles including some archives from the atoms stanley. john adams. John quincy adams. Abigail adams and john adams writes in his diary thanksgiving for the repeal of the stamp act. So like that was something. You would have a thanksgiving for declare thanksgiving for thanksgiving's for various wins in battle or days of general thanksgiving or like. I said fasting and humiliation so those sorts of advance existed outside of north america. What we now consider the continental united states they existing europe and those traditions were obviously brought over when people came over but the concept of having days set aside for saying thank. You is something that goes back a very very long time. Tell us about. Sarah josefa so sarah of a hail was so compelling to me because she was a young woman born in the early nineteenth century actually of the eighteenth century. She had no formal schooling but her parents instilled in her a deep deep love of reading and learning and she was obsessed with the written word. She married a man who shared her love of all these things. They used to have study hour together in the evenings. She lost him fairly early on in their marriage and so she was a widowed mother of five children and because of her desire to write ended up becoming one of the most influential editors in the nineteenth century. She edited to popular women's magazines. The american ladies magazine and then go. Jeez ladies magazine which was one of the most popular magazines in the nineteenth century. And just to be able to do that to me whether thing but what really moved me about her was that she had all of these things that she needed not wanted but like needed to do for herself and her children but she still found time to raise money for people who have less than she did and to bring people's attention to causes she thought worthy and her ten city was just. I mean seriously. I was interviewing her thinking good. What have i been doing with my time. You know how i feel like. I'm talking to her. You know when. I am interviewing her. I'm looking at what she wrote. I'm looking at what she was quoted as saying. I'm looking at the book she put out. I'm looking at the end. Policies that she curated
Donald Trump's disregard for our transition rituals threatens democracy
"Have you noticed. This is not normal. The president openly trying to say only the votes for him should count talking about sailing election. No legal path to succeed. We've been reporting on how those michigan republicans were welcomed at the white house after being shamed in their own home state for what they were doing. And donald trump is also taking petty moves that basically delay or mess with aspects of the transition. They won't mess with the transfer of power. All of this. We want to show tonight with. The evidence is a radical break from a longstanding. Bipartisan approach to the peaceful transfer of power in america that look forward to talking to the president so honored that he was attended with hospitality to me. And my wife. Yesterday didn't need to do this. And i am most grateful that He would do so good morning last night. I had a warm conversation with president. Elect barack obama. I congratulated him and senator biden on their impressive. Victory told the president-elect he can count on complete cooperation for my administration as he makes the transition to the white house. My number one priority. In the coming two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures dental is successful. We turned presidential historian. Michael beschloss what contrast you see from there to now well once again are a donald trump tonight as a category of his own. Go all the way back to john adams who lost to the guy who was at that time as you know his political enemy. Thomas jefferson. Adams was angry about being defeated by jefferson. And he didn't hang around for the inauguration that tradition adopted established yet so adams got an a stage coach and went back to massachusetts before jefferson was born in but it began this tradition. That even when you have an incumbent president who is angry at the guy who beat him for reelection. Herbert hoover in one thousand nine hundred ninety three and franklin roosevelt over to the white house to talk about how they should transfer power even when they rolled up to the capital roosevelt and hoover sat in the back of an open car. They shared a lap robe. If you could believe it didn't talk much. But that's a tradition. And as you say the tradition is running alongside both the rules constitutional requirements and the norms that much abuse a framework or term in the last four years That provide a buffer a provide a context all this. We just showed the outgoing president's michael stays with us. We want to show michael. And our viewers the other cases where we have seen the candidates as mentioned who lost just conceding with some eye on their place in history john mccain making what for him was a painful concession to barack obama in two thousand and eight hillary clinton in that loss that shocked so many including many in the republican party. She got up the next morning and gave that speech pledging cooperation to president-elect trump and sixteen we've seen presidents who lost reelection like trump did face the music the people of the united states that made the choice and of course. I accept that decision. But i have to admit not with the same enthusiasm that i accepted the decision for years ago. People have spoken. And we respect the majesty of the democratic system. I just called governor clinton over in little rock and offered my congratulations. he did run a strong campaign. I wish him well in the white house. You know michael you deal with facts and evidence you have a rigorous process between where you start and publishing one of your history books. How do you measure class. Because what i see there is something. That's hard to prove. But i feel it inside which is across ideology in parties. We've just seen many different presidents showing a type of class or even grace that is absent right now at the white house. We're going to ari. I've got two sons who are now in their twenties but they used to play a little league and every time they played a game even if they lost they would shake hands with the winning team and say good game. That was assumed this. That's that's american. What is not. American is to claim when you didn't win to be a poor loser you try to be out of keeping with the tradition of all those guys you just showed even richard nixon who is not thought of in history as a particularly gracious winner. Nineteen sixty gets beaten by john kennedy. He was very angry about it and it was very sad about it but he goes out and tells us supporters in los angeles in america. Once a decision is made we unite behind the candidate who was elected that was even before the final results were. Yeah that's great a great example. You're given off as we say off the top of the dome michael We have one more for you. And that is al gore. Who did have this tight legal challenge. Everyone remembers frustrating. For both sides in the run up to it and then of course frustrating for the person losing so narrowly having won more votes overall total across america. Al gore take a look now the. Us supreme court has spoken. Let there be no doubt while. I strongly disagree with the court's decision. I accept it. I accept the finality of this outcome. Which will be ratified next monday. In the electoral college and tonight for the sake of our unity as a people and strength of our democracy. I offer my concession. If i may be a little optimistic here at the end of the week michael ask you to guide us. What would you as someone who cares deeply about america. What would you tell citizens both parties neither party whatever. What is incumbent upon the rest of us to do if we never get that concession from this president. What do we do from here together. We just say the. Donald trump is a gross aberration. Get him out out the door. The door doesn't hit him on the way out on the twentieth of january and say we demand our leaders that they do. What all those other candidates that you show tonight did show some graciousness and understand that democracy is more important. Listen to what al gore said. He didn't say. I agree with the supreme court decision in bush v gore. He says for the sake of our democracy. I offer my concession. Most canada's most presidents love democracy want to unite the country. Donald trump is a gross aberration and exception to that tradition. Soon he'll be gone. Michael beschloss gets the word on that. Thank you sir.
Amy Coney Barrett & The State of SCOTUS
"So the topic I want to go to now is on the question timing the fact that this nomination is coming rather late in the fourth year of a president's term has made it controversial in fact, timing of just. Nominees to nominations to the supreme. Court has been controversial now for four or five years for a variety of reasons. So that's the first question. I would like each of you to tell me your position on on the question. Should the Senate be voting on a nomination to the Supreme Court right now sire you yes or no on that? I. Mean Yes. John All right cy you are yes. On the same question Irwin should the Senate be voting on a Justice of the supreme? Court now yes or no no amy honeybear bear should not be confirmed at this time. All right. Thank you I. Want to go first use for your reasons. Why are you a? Yes on the on the question of the timing of the nomination right now well, on the question of timing I think the Senate has the authority to consent the president is nominated someone. I don't see any reason why the Senate Caq Senate is doing other things it's it's considering thrown a virus relief. Of course, it can legislate until the members leave. and. So nothing nothing prevents the president from nominating someone nothing prevents Senate from acting upon that nomination and I think there three positions John. I think one position is you must vote on the nomination I. think that was Erwin's position for years ago. A second position is you can vote on the nomination, but you shouldn't that might ear ones position today and I the the middle position, which is you can vote on the nomination and you should. Thank your ticket back to you. So what I hear size saying is the Senate has every legal and constitutional right to be doing this now. They, certainly have the legal and constitutional right to do it, but they shouldn't do it. This is stunning hypocrisy by the Republicans for years ago Senator Mitch McConnell said, the American people should have a voice in the selection and the next Supreme Court justice. Therefore, this vacancies should not be filled into we have a new president. Antonin Scalia died in February two, thousand sixteen. President Obama named Mira Garland for that seat in March of two thousand sixteen. There was eight months before the election was to be held in the Republicans wouldn't hold hearings or wouldn't hold about Ruth Bader Ginsburg died on September eighteenth of twenty twenty, and already the Republicans are looking to fill that seat. There is historical precedent. On October twelfth eighteen sixty four chief justice Roger Tawny died the president Abraham Lincoln didn't try to fill the vacancy in the month before the election or nineteen fifty-six Justice Sherman Minton resigned from the court but President Eisenhower didn't try to pick the successor instead an October fifteenth. He made a recess appointment of a Democrat William Brennan. So whoever won the election would pick the successor? Alright let. Let me jump in because I I WANNA give cya chance to respond to some of what you're saying. So so I think we heard from Irwin saying that. eight months. was enough of a lead time and they were talking about the case of Merrick Garland back in two thousand sixteen. But that one month one and a half months is too short and he sites precedent of other examples where presidents had more of that timeframe. So what's your response to that? I think are ones making a slightly different point I think if. They. Can See had risen eight months ago I think are only making the same exact point, which is what's good for the goose is good for the Gander. So it's not really a question of timing. There's plenty of time as Irwin and other people now there there's GonNa be a vote in the Senate. The point is about equity I. Think the point is about precedent in Irwin has some precedents would, of course, you can go back to previous administrations in sight other presidents. John Marshall was appointed days before John Adams left the Presidency Steven Briar was nominated and appointed to the circuit court after Jimmy Carter lost. So there, there are precedents obviously for acting after the election. Let alone before I understand there's some raw feelings about what happened four years ago and I understand that people have flipped Irwin. Himself is flipped a apparently senator McConnell may have slipped as well. I think. It's unfortunate. This game of delaying nominations has gone on for quite a long. I have a colleague who waited two years before she withdrew for circuit court position because it wouldn't allow vote. That's just sort of power politics on both

Optimal I may former gamecocks students graduate and I wanted to get your thoughts on my Game Cock this year we'll must GMC cool down a little bit after we got the win over Auburn you know we started off the year Oh and two losing. To it, I thought we should've sort of be Tennessee didn't expect to be Florida but not only you know how you see much champ. Tenure Planet Out South drawn but how do we have a successful season like what is success or South Carolina this year? The Dixon. Five. And five accident I. think that's really the question in You know I think Saturday night is critical because it's an opportunity to win against a very vulnerable team and even though college football insiders may not think as much of it as they would have earlier, it's still something to hang your hat on. A loss I think South Carolina isn't Really. A significantly better position than they were week ago. Because you had to beat somebody to have a better than five hundred season and lost lsu was was that three losses allred that would be three losses with. Some really big games remaining. So I mean I think this year five hundred is going to calm everyone down I. I don't want to sound like. I'm not giving much credit but I think next year is going to be far more critical. That you do think he will soon let me go five hundred or so you think he'll be. I'm. Not sure. You're short a losing out there. There would be any real movement to make a change. I just don't think the administration wants to deal with it right now. Yeah I think that's also an issue the rate hanters another can of worms. Well. Ray Tanner has certainly attached themselves to will muschamp. Yeah I think they they come and go with the package in my opinion. Braxton. Really. Nice to hear from you and it's always good to hear from California. have, Shannon. WHO's up next Hey Shannon. Paul thanks for taking my call. Thank you. Sitting here, watching the ninety four Tennessee Alabama replay on that account. Blah brings back memories for sure. that when this really was. But getting back to a competitive game I was just. Thinking that the season goes way did as playing out how do you stack up Clemson and Alabama they wind up playing each other and with the over and under bait over a over a hundred yeah. My big concern would be Alabama's defense right now against Trevor, Lawrence and t n and all those. They have. But I I, it's. It's not like we really know. Clemson last year. outside of the North Carolina game looked unbeatable and we all know, Ohio, state had them beaten? And should have put them away and they couldn't do it so. I would give Alabama a really good shot. I know a lot of people think there's no. So there's there's a lot of separation, but I would like to see Alabama play a few more games I. Think I think Georgia was their toughest test but I still would like to see them. Marsha. The season I I might go with Alabama. Clemson really has a tough tough were coming up this weekend I noticed in Syracuse after that should be bring the liberty that should be a real challenge for them to maybe stay awake. Really. Appreciate it. Thank you. Thank you very much. I appreciate your call. Mike. Is Up in Kentucky Mike. Thanks good afternoon. Hey how you doing we're doing great.

WE'RE GONNA go red fish fishing down in March Sunday money. But we'RE GONNA BE WATCHING YA I. Don't remember the last time I have I have not been in either Tuscaloosa or or Knoxville for this game, but it is It's Years ago remember three or four years ago but I can't get a ticket and with going on I. Just thought it'd be a good year. Well. So we'll be fishing but thanks for taking my call. Thank you next year in Tuscaloosa where we convene. Hey, thank you very much Let's continue and check in with Gerry Jeremy up next. Hey, Jeremy go right ahead. Hey Paul get up next Jamie. Jamie I'm sorry I read poorly. It's okay how you doing today Jamie doing great. That's good Let's set aside Alabama and clint them, and let's discuss who number three and whose number forward. And can this year be? Year where we crown national champion with two losses and you know It's possible because. They Oh, six. Oh, seven unless you season where Arkansas and Kentucky beat Lsu and they came back and Won The title in seven. Th. They lost to Kentucky and over time or maybe a double overtime and they lost Arkansas in the final game of the regular season in overtime they they used to joke that they were undefeated in the regular season. But in. In Regular Time. But you know what I don't think. So for because of this, the schedules are so truncated and after Alabama Clemson, you'd have to put Ohio state in there without having seen them play, and then it becomes very difficult Is it a West Coast school we? You know they can get in there were seven seven wins but certainly i. can't think of a school right now that could get in there with two losses. Sounds. Great. I appreciate you a comment back to me about that and You have a good day. Well, thank you very much mad dog in making. Is Up next hey. Mad Dog. Hey, Paul thanks for having me back how you doing. Thank you. Great to have you back. All I didn't gloat about the domes beaten Auburn or Tennessee or even what turns out to be our biggest win against Arkansas. And so I'm not gonNA, wind about losing to Alabama 'cause nobody likes a sore loser. But yes..

"Line coach, but maybe not so much as a recruiter. Defensive Line is regressed and. So out goes Jimmy Brown ball Four Games into the season you score seven points on Kentucky and Get rid of your defensive line coach. Makes all the sense in the world it actually, it sounds like a Butch Jones move frankly. And I saw I, saw an article on him. He's doing great collecting his money from Tennessee, well, doing whatever nick, Sabin wants him to do but but this is probably not the best time to to have Alabama drop in for a visit. No how ever Paul when you look back at this thirteen game losing streak Tennessee is on in this rivalry. mediocre teams matched up against Alabama eventual national champions. Actually Played Alabama closer the needing teams during this streak. two thousand and nine team under lane. Kiffin was three and three Ghost Alabama. And all those comes a field goal terrence cody, of course, blocked it. Think it hit him in his stomach. Alabama and got a twelve ten winning and goes on to win a national championship event in two thousand fifteen. Tennessee again, three and three Alabama on the way to a national championship. Played in Tuscaloosa. Alabama needs a a really clutch fourth quarter Dr. J. Co coca their quarterback lead the way derrick. Henry. Finish it off and so. They pull it out but. In Tennessee had. Higher regarded teams that just got blown out by Alabama. Can I really wonder how seriously Alabama can take this Tennessee? Yeah I watched Nick Sabin talk about how much respect he has for Jeremy. and. Try to find an excuse I guess because that's what coaches always do but I don't disagree with you I do think this game has a chance to be interesting but you know interesting in a loss is still the same result isn't it? Yeah I just think but I think it's almost It would be a win for Tennessee to come close to get remotely close against Alabama you. You look at what? Tennessee under Jeremy Pruitt under that against the Big Three on schedule Georgia. Florida Alabama lot to lost Alabama twenty nine point five average two losses to Florida twenty eight point five average margin of victory and then George Three Games by an average of twenty, six points. In Jeremy PRUITT's third year I think it's imperative that he. Comes close against one of those teams. Georgia. No shot at that now and. I know it doesn't look promising against Alabama. Way that offense is rolling but. As I said, he knows Alabama what kind of mood it would be in after such a big win over Georgia. A fair point John just Relations Jeremy. PRUITT because it seemed like a three or four weeks ago he could do. He could do. No. Wrong. What are the? Fans saying, what do you hear from? You certainly talked to enough people in that town even even under bizarre circumstances what folks saying? Well I think up into the Georgia game and and in a way, a lot of people even after the. one-sided loss to George and just A. Brutal Secondhand for Tennessee I think they instill believed in Jeremy? PRUITT. Certainly, a good defensive coach he's had He's recruiting pretty well. And there's still that win streak. They had eight game winning streak before the loss Georgia's so. however, the the loss to Kentucky change things as I said earlier that that is a game that Tennessee expects to win. It expects to beat Kentucky more than he expects to be vanderbilt and there's a track record for that. I. Mean This is a game they're reminding Kentucky's improved under marsters. Think you've done a terrific job there but what Kentucky has an image in football against Tennessee? And so fans I. Think this is probably Jeremy Pruitt's worst Laos since that Catastrophic loss to twenty five point underdog Georgia state. In the season opener in two thousand and nineteen I. Think he's kind of almost back where he was then and he needs to scrawl finishing. Second half of the season. Let's let's talk about the rest of the way John Alabama if it goes according to plan. would be lost number three we all know that. There are still some pretty challenging games remaining such as the Florida game at the very end of the year. Believe what Auburn is on that schedule as well. And? You know you start to think about? You, know. The possibilities of the schedule was Alabama at Arkansas forgot about that. AM At Auburn Bandy in Florida. there's there. She land mines the final half of the season to say the least. Oh I think vanderbilt only shirt thing. You go back Glassy and look at Tennessee's winning streak after two and five started rebounded to win last. Five regular season Games and beat Indiana the gator bowl. But he didn't have the player nationally ranked team in any of those games. I think the best anybody did out of those six games the opponent I think I am. Eight something like that. So it wasn't beating really good teams but it'd be it wasn't two games they were supposed to win and my made Nice Comeback Against Indiana but now you look at the schedule. An EMS nationally right. I'm not sure how good it is because it. Didn't play well against Alabama struggled against the bill So it's kind of a mixed bag there auburn it's been disappointing but Arkansas.

And I I have that problem I'm full of hyperbole and scientists aren't and I love that about them and they care about the mess they care about the facts and I hear all that and I read all that and then I'm just like oh his blitz. He's some poetry so I remember Reading Steven Weinberg's book the first three minutes of the universe and it's full of great fact so this was my interpretation mango juice squeezing from the heavens technically correct Richt by the way the physicists would disagree in that universe buddies taking a obviously a poetic license.

That one of the main characters is carrying a watermelon win and she goes up to Patrick swayze who she likes and says. I carried a watermelon. And that's all she can say and that is what I am like so often. I can't find the exact words and I love that about science that they can find words really matter and in a scientific communication or scientific paper hyper words mean everything but I love as a poet. I can sort of pie around with that and Taika Pot. Isn't it interesting that you draw contrast because as I often think when I'm reading your work that infect poetry and science scherer conciseness and brevity of language precision each word gets placed with intent. And yet your thinking of the relationship is quite contrasted. I totally understand what you're saying. And Brevity is so true and as a poet and I'm sure poets in the audience. They can understand this. Every word matters this and carries it's white but the thing is how do you communicate dark matter. Or how do you communicate Nebula something in biology or does I mean I can never find the right words. I love in contact. A film inspired by. Carl Sagan's book by the same.

U. responds to break a person's going to be fine but what's going to happen in the eurozone icy again I don't know but I I don't kill this massive federal justice Powell by over doing it but since you started it there's a fairly because actually started it just by you thought it what is it that the bridge immediately after Yorktown we're in the same kind of mood the Brussels is in now they will hurt and angry but it didn't take long for the British government to realize that its own interests depended on having a good quality old relationship with the new country and so that the new administration under Sheldon in in seventeen eighty two that we're gonna open all of our ports in the in person in the carribean to all American vessels we're gonna renounce all our claims on all the transmetalation terror trees you know Adams in NJ infringing couldn't believe the general city but from the British point of view it was the correct thing to do because we understood that free trade is good for everybody that it that that we wanted to have rich neighbors because rich neighbors make good customers and that's how it worked out now please remember the you did come back in in eighteen twelve to you know start a war and and burn our White House only the most ridiculous wall at the right the reason but it won't be guy and was over before the first it is the only significant engagement took place after the peace terms have been fined for news right but it's a bit too but I mean that that that that the interesting thing is if he could respond to the brexit vote by saying okay I wonder why we got that wrong maybe we we become a bit too remote baby we need to reconnect maybe the Italians all that dot jewel the poles of the Danes will feel similarly let's try and anticipate let's trying devolve a little bit of but you know so far they've done exactly the opposite they said all great now that the Brits are the way we can have a European army and we can have a European tax system and we have more and more power to the center and I think if they insist on taking back line then the E. you will fall apart sooner rather than later so Daniel I've never understood the parliamentary system never understood I mean you guys seem to be going through prime ministers like water it we have a different system with our impeachment but that's really what we're talking about now is whether you can impeach someone that didn't do anything illegal may do stuff that you didn't like but but really if impeachment is more of a vote of no confidence which our founders never intended what what do we look like to you a as a historian can you give us some perspective where you're not connected to it and and and be just as a as a brit well I mean I'm not gonna say something that is is probably guarantee to offend every single person listening to you whether they're Democrat or Republican whether they support or oppose the impeachment which is a I don't think that Donald Trump colluded with Russia and I don't think that he behaved in an impeachable way over the Ukraine business but I think that what we know of his behavior is so on presidential and and so indicative of bad character and bad judgment that should count against him politically and I I reckon that statement is offended absolutely everybody be calls one of the things that is very striking about the U. S. discourse of the moment is that everyone has to be a hundred percent one way or the other yes everyone has to be you know and to say anything in between to say for example is great the Donald Trump is cutting taxes although it's a pity he lied about releasing his own tax return or to say it's fantastic that he's deregulating radio but you but you know what a pity that he thinks his okay to mock the family of a deceased American servicemen the you never hear anybody saying those things because it's become so tribal I'm so polarized I'm not gonna say that does worry me you know the the the extent to which people in the U. S. now see the other side as enemies rather than as fellow citizens with a different opinion and and a great democracy can only take so much of that so as a historian you've watched us for a long long time Hey you know our history the I think it was Churchill said one of the great your greatest things about Americans is after they've tried everything else they finally to awry do we do we how do we get out of this one Daniel yeah I mean that America is still the greatest Republic on a this is a fantastic fantastic country and saying that because it's true but the main street yeah I mean you liberated millions of people from tyranny you put the flag of your country on the moon you you created the most open and free system of government on a and those things have deep roots but I would say you know they they depend on people valuing the rule of law and the process and the rules and business the thing that I find alarming about the US now is how in different people did you process when they happen to favor a particular outcome I mean yeah it's a trivial example but I would say that both Barack Obama and Donald Trump exceeded that powers and cycling Congress in order to tamper with the rules on immigration Obama did it to liberalize immigration trump did it to Tyson and oppression but the number of people who who condemns in both you could come pretty much on your fingers you know and the thing is I have the address right or is wrong it is not right when it happens to be your guide the wrong one is the other guy and the the the the the the as soon as you lose sight of that and you get into this kind of anything goes that's when you risk becoming like in our Guatemala rolled through all all all somewhere else that is it it had a a much weaker history of the rule of law and of a peaceful democratic politics Daniel Hannan it is always great the two to talk to you and your your insight is great and I I'm so happy and there are millions of Americans that are cheering for your freedom today to chart your own course and to be your own country and to fly your flag with pride we appreciate that cousins right back after Douglas's thank you Daniel Hannan from London
