"And one of the first place they did was a fellow And I couldn't find somebody to play Desdemona. And then they found this rather slight, pretty young officer who look great in a dress. Ulysses S. Grant. This is kind of pre $50 Bill grizzled Grant. He was girlish. In those days. The guy playing a fellow couldn't get up enough emotional Excitement they sent to New Orleans for professional actress to sub for Grant to went on to bigger and better things, but it was great to think of a future American president. Playing a woman in love of the black man. I mean, that tells you something about where this country has been. British portrayals of Shakespeare. Protagonists, especially Macbeth and Hamlet were very different from the American portrayals. Do not muse. I made my most worthy friends. I Have a strange infirmity, true and part because the lead American actor at this time, a guy named Forrest Edwin Forrest when they found them. Finally, at the end of his career dead in bed, they found a pair of hand weights at the foot of his bed. He was One of the early advocates of the pumped up actor used the first great homegrown male Shakespearean actor, and he defined it in opposition to that kind of Thoughtful, brooding, reflective English Shakespearean. Am I a coward? Who calls me villain. Breaks my pate across, plucks off my beard and blows it in my face. Beats me. By then I was giving the lie. The throat is deep into the lungs. She does me this. Macbeth and Hamlet who we just heard were portrayed as warriors in America. They even cut the Parts where they looked weak out of the plays, and that brings us to Lincoln's assassination. John Wilkes Booth. Is notorious as the man who assassinated Lincoln at Ford's Theatre in April 18 65, But he was also one of the great Shakespeare Actors of his day. John Wilkes Booth's played Macbeth. What about 100 times? But it was the character of Brutus in Julius Caesar. That seems to have been the true inspiration for what he did. Loved the character of Brutus as many in 19th Century America dead. This is a man who opposed tyranny and the South saw Lincoln has a tyrant. Booth only acted once in this play, but he recited the speeches all the time. After assassinating Lincoln. He leapt onto the stage a little leaping trick he stole from his muk best productions, and he shouted, Sic Semper tyrannis, thus always with tyrants. Playing momentarily the part of an American Brutus right after his assassination of Lincoln talk about the very controversial production of Julius Caesar, you are involved in a few years back put on by the Public Theater in Central Park.

Fresh update on "john wilkes booth" discussed on Our American Stories
"Well, I learned more watching that than three years at the University of Virginia School of Law. I don't think I need to say more. That's how good it is. And now we return to James Swanson and the story of John Wilkes Booth and to date the biggest manhunt in American history. One of the most remarkable things I found in researching this book was what Asia, Booth said about his grave. And it really made me aware of the memory of booth and how we need to challenge it. I think this is what she said that no no epitaph. Marks his grave and there's no stone he's buried in the booth family plot. In her book closes with this graveside allergy. Lot, granting that he died in vain. He gave his all on earth, youth, beauty manhood, a great human love the certainty of excellence in his profession, a powerful brain, the strength of an athlete, health and great wealth. For his cause. This man was noble in life. He perils his immortal soul and he was brave and death. Already His hidden remains are given Christian burial and strangers have piled his grave with flowers. So runs the world away. That was one of the most shocking things I'd read in the tens of thousands of pages. That I read researching this book. And in a way she's right. And here's how I think Booth has gotten away with it in American memory. We don't think of John Wilkes Booth the way we think of our other assassins. Lee Harvey Oswald. James Earl Ray, Uh, Cipher, Man of Noah counselors accomplishment that we reviled for what they've done. Booth has his own monument. It's called Ford's Theater in Washington, D. C. All his artifacts are in the basement museum there. His diary as if awaiting a final entry is open for us to see the pistol he used to kill Lincoln, which Children over a million of them. Visit a year and marvel at the photos of his girlfriends in his pockets. Near Ford's theater. There are street banners with his photograph blown up to massive size directing tourists to Ford's Theatre. I would pose this question. Would you go to Dallas, Texas to find Lee Harvey Oswald banners near the book Depository? Would you go to Memphis and find James Earl Ray banners? Somehow, Booth has been drained by modern culture of his dangerousness of his evil nature. The fact that he was a killer a racist. He murdered our greatest president. And yet we think of him in an almost antiquarian way. We think of him as the tragic young actor who threw away his life and his talent for Cause that was wrong, and I don't think we condemn him the way most Americans did in 18 65. I think this is partly because both performed this so well and he's almost tricked us into believing this isn't quite real. It's a it's a play. He performed the assassination. He performed his escape. He performed wonderfully. It impromptu play on the 12th night in the middle of the night, when the soldiers surrounded him with the Garrett barn and engage them in dialogue and report a and set the barn on fire. Those really the footlights of the stage, and he knew that was his last performance for the American Theater. A couple other examples of how I think Luther has gotten away with us. If you go to the new Abraham Lincoln Museum in Springfield's, The Theater is dressed to appear just as it did On the night of April. 14th 18 65, the state boxes festooned with flags and the framed engraving of George Washington that hangs from the front of the boxes, the actual one that witness booths leap to the stage. You can follow boost steps up the curving staircase, retrace his path to the box, enter the vestibule and recreate his view of Lincoln's rocking chair. You can sit in the audience and while listening to a National Park service historian lecture on the assassination, you can stare up at the box and imagine Booth suspended momentarily in mid air at the apex of his sleep. John Wilkes Booth would have loved it. An entire museum, one of the most popular in America devoted to his crime. I must have fame he wants exhorted himself fame in the main rotunda figures of the Great Frederick Douglass of Grant and Sherman of Tableau of the entire Lincoln family. And who is looking at them with hate filled eyes, a life size wax figure of John Wilkes Booth. In the gift shop I found for sale two Children, toy Darren Jer pistols. It was unbelievable. And I would say again, Would you find wax figures of vows Walt at the Kennedy Library in Boston? It wax figures of James Earl Ray at the King Center, Atlanta or standing outside the Lorraine Motel or Replicas of Oswald's manly perico counter rifle for sale to our Children. I think not, Um, Booth was so evident that before he killed Lincoln, the night of the 14th. He wrote his own op ed to be published in the papers the next day, so that the American people could read why he killed Lincoln. If he worked hard on it, he sealed in an envelope. He handed it to an actor friend and said, I may have to leave town rather quickly. And I might not be coming back. If I don't come back, Will you deliver this to the national intelligence or editor the next day? That man was so terrified That he had possession of that letter. That he destroyed it. And it was never published later. He purported. To reconstruct the letter. But I note in my book that I don't believe his reconstruction of the letter because his attempt to reconstruct the letter is based on a memo Booth wrote that was discovered in his sister's safe. After the assassination, So I think this actor John Matthews Made up the letter. And didn't really remember it. He just sort of paraphrased unknown booth document. The one thing he did the only thing he remembered about that letter, which I do believe it was signed by Booth And then he signed his co conspirators names Matthew was at. Matthews was adamant that the others signed it, but We don't know what the content was. But based on other booth documents, we can guess he was crushed. And he records this in his memo book during the Escape. He was crushed that that Op Ed was not published. Then, when he was hiding in that pine thicket for five days and four nights being cared for by Thomas Jones to Confederate agent who brought him food booth also implored him. Bring me the newspapers. We're not certain what All the issues were. But based on the distribution of Confederate male, we know that the Confederates had access to certain northern papers pretty quickly. And if Booth had read any of them, he would have read how he had been damned for this low Some act. And he was crushed to read his reviews. It really took the wind out of the sails While he was hiding in this pine thicket. He couldn't move. At one point Union cavalry came within 200 yards of his hiding place. And he just had to sit there and wait and read what the North thought of him. It was his lowest point, uh, in the escape when he saw that his own article had not been published, and when he read the newspaper editorials condemning him. With respect to what would have happened if Lincoln survived. It's the great unanswered question of the Lincoln assassination. Who knows? Maybe Lincoln's death made it easier for the Republicans to pass the 13th 14th and 15th amendments. I don't know. Maybe radical Republicans would have found Lincoln too lenient. After all, he just wanted them to go home to their farms. Lincoln didn't want to put any of the Confederate leadership on trial. Not even Jefferson Davis himself..

"I know we're gonna get to these questions here. Just a second. But let me ask you before we do so we don't have a specific name. There's no Actual conduit who's mentioned somebody who was a co conspirator that got John Wilkes Booth out of there? We just think the possibility was that this other guy went back for Booth's diary. That's why he had it with him in the barn. On that booth. Having heard about it later, was like you know time to skedaddle. And so he was able thinking that the heat was off part of the bad pun. And he gets away. But there's no one person that history indicates was the hand that reached out in the confusion. No, there is not coming. They're a bunch of people approach peripherally involved, including Willie Jett, who was seven soldier, etcetera, but no one is Has come forward of it have been identified as a person. This person transported booth across the Potomac or across the river to the south. You know, after April 26 right? And then where do you marry? You mentioned the and I thank you for letting me dial you back from it. So then he later on like an 18 75. There's record of him getting married. 18 72. Yeah, There's a story. I saw it on a TV show. And then when I actually do the research, unfortunate name It is it is, but I mean, it was. It was a great historian. August. I bet he was, but he he assembled, you know, you know, literally hundreds of feet of file. Shelve information on John Wilkes Booth is that For for later on. A man is in, um Theo area of someone in Tennessee. He meets a woman named Louisa Pain. She's a widow. She already has one son, should they get married? Um And then he and then after they get married, she confides in her that his name is not X, and that he ripped and that his real name is John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of Abraham Lincoln. And Luisa Pain is furious. She's not furious that he killed wagon. She's furious that she married him under the wrong name, so she forces him to go back to the county courthouse. Philip the proper paperwork. And then marries her again. As John W. Booth. Huh? It was just in dead on a common of a name. I mean, you could theoretically, you know, seven years after an assassination, you could use that name. Nobody would have thought differently, Right? We all know the name John Wilkes Booth. Yeah, but John W booth outside the possibility, but You know, And sometimes we have to rely on family lore, which is very, very powerful. And maybe, you know, and may in fact, be untrue. I mean, there were a number of people who claim to have been millennial descendants of John Wilkes Booth. And you know, the History channel just did a special where they tested. DNA's A very Edna versus the Edna of Living Booth family not sure almost booked. But both families saw that they weren't related. So but there was there was, but As the story goes, there is there was always a pain when when John Wilkes Booth left her, he said, Look, I'm gonna head out west. I'll send for you. He never said for her on when he left. She was married. I'm pregnant, and she gave birth to a daughter. Andre daughter always carried the booth name is my affection. She became an actress. Her name was Laura Booth, and she always identified herself as Laura Booth. Um, but the story but The, uh Who's way No. The Booth leaves that Tennessee the Johnson County, Tennessee area, heads out west to Granby, Texas, in Oklahoma. Um and, um He was being sued. Um it's option. New name and the first name that we know that he used is a guy named John ST Helen. Which kind of bears no relationship. It's kinda It's kind of a flowery name for its got a stage name to age presence. You know, Sometimes we look for things that reinforce what we believe. But the second name he uses. Is David E. George. And if you think about it for a second David Herold was one of the conspirators. George adds. A rod was one of the conspirators right gave it He, George and again. This could be just an extraordinary coincidence. Um, but based on my research, I don't I think that was maybe Booth just kind of thumbing his nose at something so anyhow. Joints Ain't human is getting it's getting. It's getting suit. Uh, he hires an attorney named Finest Bates to represent him. On the reason why he wanted to be represented by an attorney was he did not want to go into federal court in the grand be Texas area because it was still an arrest warrant out for John Wilkes Booth. It wants, um Pain in the neck. Deputy U S marshal putting two and two together, um, because it was appearance, etcetera. So if he hires finest Bates and the matter's disposed of, and Bates and Dr Helen become friends. Um, Saint Helen gets deathly ill and you know, and again. This is this is in the in the late 18 seventies. I mean, the you know the flu. Um, you know, killed a number of people every year. Pneumonia. I mean, you name it. It was kind of it was kind of a bacteria Bacterial. Very logical. You know, square dance out there. Um people would die from what we consider to be Monday. Analysis. Okay, John saying Helen gets sick and he's feverish. And he's um um, literally near death, and he sends for his attorney. Find a space based goes to his hotel room and in the midst of the fever. Um He tells base. There's a picture under my pillow. If I die, please send the picture to my brother. With a note that says I passed and the brother's name he gives his booth On at some point. I mean, I've seen two conflicting accounts basis book talks about Edwin Booth. Other witness talk about Junius Booth, both of whom were brothers. Elder Brothers of John Wilkes Booth. Um Thing. ST Helens survives. A couple of weeks later. He's meeting with finest basically said, You know, Hey, you know, when I was when I was the Russian and Phil was gonna die, and, um, you know, I made this disclosure that I'm John Wilkes Booth. And I really am John Wilkes Booth. Um, and then they discuss it. Um, And then they kind of lose track of each other. He moves to Enid, Oklahoma. Um, he goes under the name David E. George and eat in Oklahoma. And a lot of people and eight are talking about this guy. David George, who would literally go out, go out and get drunk most nights, jump up on the bar and start reciting lines from Shakespearean plays. He commits suicide in 19 0 to, um, among his papers They find, um you know some correspondence with finest Bates. They send for finest Bates, who at that time had moved back to believe believe it was from Tennessee. Also, yes, Attorney General of Tennessee and his daughter. His granddaughter is a matter of fact, as Kathie Lee based the address, So, uh, That's fine. Mrs Bates granddaughter Finances based granddaughters. Character captivates the act. All right. We got a full boat of calls for you. Let's start with Robert, who's in Tucson, west of the Rockies. He knows about that. David George piece right? That that end of the story didn't surprise. You know. Hello? Yeah, I am. I was reading Ah book called into the Shadows by Troy Taylor, which covered exactly what your guest has said it pretty much matches everything. All the information you give is pretty much in that book. Also, by the way, just as a side note his brother Edwin Booth was a far better actor. Then John Wilkes Booth. In fact, many people allude to the fact that John Wilkes Booth was just a mediocre second rate actor where his brother Edwin, was a lead in place. There was also a movie. Called Prince of players about Edwin Booth, and it starred Richard Burton s O. That's all I wanted to essentially cover. Thanks. I appreciate end of the first time color line, Chuck.

He also was there that night in front of the White House and boost said he's going to give n words the right to vote. He's going to give Edwards the vote at that moment. A plot to kidnap Abraham Lincoln because that's what the plot originally was, became the plot to murder him. Booth was just waiting for his opportunity. Why was he going to murder him? Because this guy was going to give slaves he was going to take them from being slaves to being an equal. To you. Booth. Booth decided he's got to die for that. He has to die for that. And Booth. Why was it Ford's theater? Well, Booth was known in Ford's theater. He used to pick up his mail there. And in the morning of April 14th not at this time, but late, let's say later this morning. Booth. It goes to the theater to pick up his mail. He's reading through the mail, and Mr Ford, the owner of the theater, comes out and says, Hey, President's going to be here tonight. This is one of the president's coming to the show tonight. Our American cousin. That was the name of the show. Booth decided. Okay, This is my night.

"Abraham Lincoln. And I'm not saying he did or didn't I'm saying that the Booth family said that he did and sued the government. To prove that he did. January the 13th 1903. And I told you the story of the gentleman who committed suicide in the Grand Avenue hotel under the name of David. He, George And how the mortician mummified him because of witnesses who said he claimed to be John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of Abraham Lincoln. And they put this money in the window of a furniture store. Ravine it? Yes, right in 1931 Life magazine. Ransom pictures of it. In fact, you can search on the Internet and you can see pictures is very morbid. But the government didn't claim the body. They said. We don't want him so they ended up giving it to find a space back. Then there were no laws against people owning mummies and the attorney general for Tennessee Finest base who is the grandfather of actors, Kathy Bates. Took the money and then wrote a best selling book entitled The end of John Wilkes Booth by suicide, and even Oklahoma sold 100,000 copies. And then that money, which he had toured the United States for Almost four decades as people were offered thousands of dollars to prove that it wasn't John Wilkes Booth. In 1931 Henry Ford. Ford Motor Company had the leading scientist in Chicago, Do an autopsy ran X rays on it. X rays had just been invented World War two And the doctors came out and said publicly that this is John Wilkes Booth. And what the government said nothing and the mummy continued to go on display until it was involved in a train accident in the 19 seventies and disappeared a tray next train accident. So if that money were to be found today, it would be probably is valuable historically. And monetarily is as close to King Tut mummy because you could dude no on that money and and relatives of John Wilkes Booth to determine if it's booth, but because the money's gone My job was to get the vertebrae from the museum. And we already had permission to dig up the body of Edwin Booth from Massachusetts Cemetery. So we ask, and the government came back and said No, it's a national treasure. The vertebrae are national. You can have them. You're gonna bore hole in the Smithsonian Sciences came back and said, No, it's just a little Nick. And we already have permission to exhume Edwin boost body and we'll take. We'll take care of the three vertebrates, the 3rd 4th and 5th vertebrae of the neck of the body in the barn that the government took So we appealed, got some letters from center in half and others. And then we got a response is couple of years ago and the government said Oops, We've lost the vertebrae. We've lost the vertebrae. Yeah, they're no longer on display, and they can't find them. So someone has said to me. Well, now, wait a minute. That's just ridiculous. I mean, this is stupid. Why would the government ever hide the fact that this body in the barn wasn't John Wilkes Booth? And the only answer that I have to that is, as Henry Ford once said. History is bunk, meaning that if people know that the government is lying to them, the value of the American dollar goes down. Because the dollar on Lee has value because of trust in the government like I've, said Gwynn, It's an incredible story, and whether you believe it or not, is not the issue because out of over the 2000 books written on the assassination Abraham Lincoln 95% of them mention Enid, Oklahoma and what happened there in 1903? Whether or not it's true Enid and Oklahoma and its ties assassination Abraham Lincoln have now become part of the legacy. And have you ever talked to anyone that remembers seeing that money in the window of the furniture store? Well, yes, mostly, though, those folks are gone. I did talk to them 25 years ago. But now I still talk to Children of men and women who would tell them that they remember seeing the mummy in the school. So what is the takeaway for the booth family and the descendants? Well, they're still fighting. They're still wanting to prove that John Wilkes Booth did not die at Garretts Farm, Of course, as a member of the Surat society, If you say you believe the story I mean,.

If you're if you're if you're watching us on Blaze TV, I'll try to point this out. John Wilkes Booth is up here in the corner on the balcony.

He's one of the higher heads. Okay, you see him, so he was up in the corner and after he finished with malice toward none and charity for all It was the first attempt on his life. Wilkes was so enraged he couldn't control it. And he was going to kill him with his bare hands. And he came around that that little gate there at the top and came down the stairs as Lincoln was finishing up and he's almost running and he's trying to intercept Lincoln as he leaves and he was going to really kill him with his own hands there in the crowd. The problem is he was running down the stairs and he slipped and tripped and fell. And he fell. Kind of just beyond Lincoln. So kind of grabbed Lincoln from behind but missed him and he was down on the ground. Police officer lifts him up because the police officer was in between Lincoln now and Booth. He picks him up. And he's like Hey, and the police officer at the time, I think knew this was an attempt to get the president. But as soon as he saw John Wilkes Booth face, the police officer knew him knew he was famous and knew that a famous actor would never do something like that to the president. And so he said, Oh, my gosh. Mr. Booth. Are you okay? He's like, yes. Yes, I just I tripped. I'm sorry. I hope the president is fine. The president had already moved on. That was the first attempt on the life of Abraham. I'm sorry. It wasn't the first attempt. It was the first attempt by John Wilkes Booth. On the life of Abraham Lincoln. And if Booth would have killed him that day, I think even his vice President Johnson, Who was drunk now in his carriage going home on that son of a I don't think he would have minded Because He was in a different the entire country was in a different mindset..

"Existent at the time foolish on their part. JFK? The point of the assassination present extra protection was was about sixty years old. It was it was a relatively new mission. Yeah. There were couple of accidents where the secret service could learn their trade. But it was only in the last. Thirty five forty years at the secret service actually was able to to move forward from an investigative agency. That was charged with president protection to actually having all of the tools and equipment that they needed to to to to to fulfill their function. Remember during JFK just nation wasn't even using walkie talkie. They were communicating my hand signals at that point. Oh my God. Or vehicle based radios. Now, they all least have little earpieces and everything else. But in spite of all of that we had Ron Ronald Reagan was wounded Gerald Ford almost got shots. Video of the Ronald Reagan assassination attempt by John. John w Hanley everything works the way it was supposed to, and it was just actually due to a fluke that Reagan was actually hit is actually wounded. You know when the him Akon, Kathy. He rotates towards the shot. He expands his body to make himself larger to afford more protection to the president. We have Jerry. Pushing the president. And if it wasn't for that. Ricochet off the door jamb. That's the one that hit the river. Something isn't it? Chest below the left armpit came close to his heart. But you know, that's one of the reasons why some someone wants to someone told me that the door is always open now on the president heading for the Limbaugh. So just to provide. Protection? But we know that that bullet ricocheted off the car because when the move ahead paint chips attached to it. So let's take some calls. Let's go east of the Rockies. Now. Let's go to our wildcard. I Eric his truck driving in Indiana. Hello, eric. You haven't said that in a long time. Mike and Joe guy has everybody doing everybody's good. Eric awesome. George. I wanna talk about the John Wilkes booth situation. As I told the screener back in those days from the eighteen hundreds all the way up until the twenties thirties and forties with a Bank robbery bad tire. You know, pretty boy slowing baby-faced Nelson. All those folks when the the sheriff or the martial or the police chief when aid got their guy they have a they had it tradition. They would always pose with the dead body to prove hey, we got our man in the John Wilkes booth situation. They did not do that. They did everything possible to conceal the identity of the court. And that tells me right there, they got the wrong guy. And they knew they got the wrong guy. Well, it was kind of a different situation too. Because the only when he would get drunk. He would say John Wilkes booth, but nobody really paid attention to them. And it wasn't as law enforcement. God him. He just committed suicide. He drank is. And and there was a gentleman named that. I mentioned earlier finest Bates who wrote a wonderful book in nineteen oh three ninety four about the identity -cation body and how and how the government did not take steps to identify the body that was purported to be booth in eighteen sixty five but. Handed claiming the body and then sold it to like traveling service. And it was funny because I was I was up late one night last week. I was flicking around and is apparently a show called know mummies or something like that where there was money hunter who was actually trying to track down this missing John Wilkes booth body. And I'm convinced he knows where it is. And it'll come out at the. At the right time. But you know, getting catch this guy. This guy was going around for over forty years saying John Wilkes booth and nobody really cared. Why we do it when he was drunk? Jump up on the. He would he would recite lines from which the third and everybody in in in Oklahoma chuckle at it. After booth shoots Lincoln, and he's a scathing he's trying to class a bridge, and they would close the bridges in and out of Washington DC night because they're still functioning onto mouth a law bluffs his way past century by saying, I'm John Wilkes booth is a great actor you can let me pass and the guy. What did he end up doing for a living? After the fact he was he was doing odd jobs. As near as I can tell from the base book. And it's kind of it's what's really funny is that base trans out to be the grandfather of Kathy Bates. The actress just kind of. Off the wall. And she's a good actress, I like her work. He's a good actress. But I mean, I I mean, you know, being the granddaughter of finest Bates that that that is a claim to fame. So let's go next. It's a short ninety Pedri grab it from Amazon grab it on your kindle. It's a great read. What's what's the name of the and suicide of John Wilkes booth at its by finest Bates? Now when you say suicide is that how we ended up dying eventually ended up. And apparently how long how long after the assassination. Three. Oh, he'd lived a long time. There was a researcher at the university of the south and and in Tennessee who actually purports to have a marriage. Register from county courthouse where John Wilkes booth signs the marriage register in eighteen seventy two as John Wilkes booth John Wilkes booth apparently. Apparently, he marry this woman to her that that he was actually John Wilkes booth and killed president Lincoln and the woman wasn't raged. Not because he kill the president. But because she married him him. She married him under a false name. They go back to the county courthouse and correct? So they correct it. They get remarried using the real names. He says I'm going out west for new opportunities, but I'll be back for you. And he never 'cause back for so why would he kill himself after all those years? I think one of the booth always expected to be treated as a hero and one of the problems, you know, maybe in the south in the south, especially okay. And after the assassination when he was he was basically camped out in this miserable fetid swamp for about five or six days and just people refused to help him because they realized that one of the best friends at the south had especially on the eve of reconstruction was ABRAHAM LINCOLN. That's right. Booth went in and ruin that. Ever really got the, you know, the recognition that she thought he deserved. The notoriety you want. I mean, you know, he can't go back to his regular trait of acting because you know, know, you know, even the confident got to figure that out. So unless you changed his name. You know, he was living under the name, David. Oh god. Hold on. What? David George names of two of the conspirators, George as rat. David hurley. It kind of makes sense. But I mean, would he do kind of what he flip the rest of the world off by basically using, you know, a combination of the names of two of the conspiracy, even as an actor. He might. But again, it goes back to client theory. How many how many how many coincidences are we willing to accept before? We realize something more to the story Mark in Raleigh North Carolina's with us. I'm mark. Go ahead, sir. I wanted to say is dead. And in match the second and sixty four eighteen sixty four became died. Paper that showed there. President and he's cats, and I think at that time for Lincoln because. You're going to try that they're going to start thinking about it too. Secret service. But my other thing I wanted to say, isn't that? Lee Harvey os- loan tried to call the husband of my grandmother's best friend on the night at twenty eight single downs jail in Walli. What would he want with him? That's interesting. He was a special counter intentions. The United States on. It's there's. The federal government. Never sent anyone to ask him. Why he had his number and name. Speak about two men. To monitor the phone call. I just wanted to just calling operator never put the call through. So we'll never know a state investigator came and interviewed the officer, you know, the special spatial intelligence officer and found Cubans living in his building twin be today. You. It was very odd. Again into is is that. Was a what you call a cutout? Who doesn't necessarily know your mission? But if you're in trouble, you can call him and get get help. If you just killed the presently. Nice states. He's not gonna. And of course, this man he denied. Why he had his getting getting you know, said he'd never had any contact went in and they're the store in. So. The Blakey the special counsel on over the comedian Seth nation that he found it disturbing on that federal government, the FBI never sent anybody to intervene him and find out. Yeah. You would think that they would have followed up on that. Thanks for that, Mark. That's pretty intriguing Paul great. Great call and they would have followed up if their if their quest was to get to the truth. But you know, there was no pretext of that either either from the FBI or the Warren commission. Interesting sidelight, if you look at this was covered in Jim Marrs book. I miss him. I'm sure you do he was he was a great researcher. But you know, he includes in his book a page from oswald's medical file, where he came down with some form of an area with venereal disease, whether whether it was syphilis or whatever and the doctor said no discipline. The contracting. The disease was was was duty related, and you know, I why would why would a navy doctor? Put his career on the line for something. Like that for some dope. Corporal who picks up a dose of something and a Bronco in Japan. Yeah. Wouldn't he he wouldn't? Now, you know, it's on that Oswald station that enable base it's on the side of a mountain that has, you know, no access to water. So, you know, you have to believe that Oswald must've been in some at least very rudimentary level on the intelligence side. Yeah. I think he was there's no doubt about that. Mary Jo in Alabama. Hi, Mary Jo. Hi, thanks for taking my call. Welcome a little light. And I don't know if you guys talked about Martin Luther King junior's fascination or not yet. Have not brought that up. Pepper was involved with that. And I just think it's kind facially that nobody's heard about them not trial that was held in December of nineteen ninety nine and. The family of the Reverend Martin Luther King never believed that James Earl Ray was the assassin. I don't know if you looked at that, Paul. I mean, there's so much to keep me busy with with Lincoln JFK. But I will circle back that at some point because that would be a great show. There are a number of things about about Dr king's assassination that just don't make sense. So, and it's always nice to have a fresh out of is letting something when you talk about Hoover and his involvement in things I wouldn't put it past them to be involved in that one either in in terms of direct operation or in terms of cover up. So. Yeah. There's a lot of ground there. And I'll be busy that at some point. I look at some of the news clips of the things happened in the sixties what a tumultuous time for us. It's funny because we're kind of living through multiple times right now. And people always say, I've never seen the country. This polarized ever seen was worse. And and you look back at the nineteen sixties and say my God, I see polarization in just about every just about every walk of life. You look at some of the period newspapers, you know, during the civil war, and you know, we're a country that that that is no timeouts. We've known a lot of people have deeply held beliefs. However, however outmoded are wrong, they might be. And I think that's one of the of the beautiful things about our country though, too. Because we have these these these dot periods, and we use them as a very experienced in quite frankly, not the sound overly patriotic. But that's what separates us from other countries. We do make some horrible mistakes. And we try to correct those mistakes and not make the same mistakes. Again. I remember back, you know, posted timber eleven thousand one whether a lot of people that were clamoring to have Muslim Americans rounded up and and. And is elated, and you know, a lot of people that credit said, you know, what we tried that. And you know with Japanese Americans during the civil war. I'm sorry World War Two and that didn't work. So we're not gonna go back and make that same day. So, you know, the the ability of the American people kinda grapple with the problem and attempt to set things, right? I think is just one of us. One of the incredible things about this country. Can you imagine.

"Isn't that where the phrase do what that will which was later adapted by Croly came about from the hellfire club came originally from the hellfire later to be adopted? The motto of the Alice probably who is worship by lots and lots of people from Timothy Leary to the Beatles and lots of other people, but he was abominable human being. May have even sacrificed children. There's nearly no limits to what he's been accused of doing. I think he called himself the beast or something it was proud of it. Sounds like a Croly would have been quite at home at the hellfire club. And also that you make an interesting connection that another member of the hellfire club. I'm not sure if it was contemporaneous with Benjamin Franklin was a relative of John Wilkes booth. I guess it would have been mega his grandfather or something, and it was Wilkes maybe John Wilkes. I forget the exact name. But yeah, he was he definitely wants to I guess libertine certainly Wilkes John Wilkes booth was he's been compared by stories to Brad Pitt of his area. He was he was profiled celebrity wasn't some unknown guy was a real celebrity, and he was a dashing figure and was quite the womanizer himself. So maybe the libertine streak ran in the family. Let's see first time. Caller, nikolina is in Santa Rosa, California. Nikolina good morning. Good morning. I've always been interested in your show. But I'm kind of interested in about. I'm native American, and nobody has ever written anything about native Americans for the history books. I haven't even changed them yet. You know? And I was just wondering if you're gonna be reading any books made it. Americans during I certainly think as president Kennedy said he the the treatment of the the American Indian is is a national disgrace. And I think I write a little bit about. And certainly I mentioned about Jackson in this book that while I like a lot of populace that Tennessee he was really incorrigible racist, especially towards native Americans, and I write a little bit about I have a little section called Cowboys and Indians where I go over some of the the the tragedy that occurred native American population, you certainly can look at it that way they're they're to ways to look at it. When when explorers came here where there was much of the country was was unconquered. So there was there was no reason why they perhaps couldn't have settled it. But it it's hard to know from this distant vantage point of who is really the bad guy. Good guy there. How bad is that? They they call us world, but they work on ising. And certainly they're the ones that one. And as I. Out repeatedly in this book history is written by the victors. So unfortunately, the Indians weren't victories. And we see the state of native Americans today where they're kind of shepherded away the separate, but equal society that no one seems to protest about whether on their ship down reservations, and they live apart largely from the rest of society. So yeah, it's it's a sad story. Nikolina? Thank you for the call. And thank you for these three hours. Don, that's a long haul and you acquitted yourself quite nicely. Thanks for hanging out. Don't thanks for having me, Richard. I I always appreciate it. And again crimes and cover ups of American politics seventeen seventy six to nineteen sixty three when does it drop?
