"Including H V A C filtration systems and sanitation services, and we'll have more on this ahead. Keep it here on Double d t o P. It's 3 11. Tonight will be the final presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden. It's a time for the candidates to make their final pitches to voters on a nationally televised stage. Of course, there is a lot to talk about, including the pandemic and new rules that were put in place after the last debate, Sean and joining us now to talk about it all is the Washington Post, Dan Balls. Damn good to have you back. Thank you so much. You're not nice to be with you. And you know, it's a good thing. We didn't have a mute button back in the days of the Lincoln Douglas debates. We've we've seemed to have gone downhill from the from the 18 sixties. Talk about the mute button and how it's needed for tonight's debate and how it might impact what we here tonight. Well given what happened in the first debate when the president especially was interrupting Vice President Biden, uh throughout the debate, and Biden, occasionally returning the favor. The commission on presidential Debates looked into the issue of whether they could do a mute button. It's a it's a turkey issue, frankly, and what they came up with is that there are six segments in the debate, and at the beginning of each segment, each candidate has two minutes. To make up a statement, and they have decided that they will mute the microphone off the candidate who is not speaking during those two minutes Now, one of the issues involved in this is that Let's say by speaking and the president's microphone is muted if he starts to talk. Biden's microphone may well pick it up, so it's not as though it will completely silence the person and so it's you know, it's going to be a turkey thing on the part of the commissioner. Whoever has their finger on the button, so to speak to manage this, but it's certainly an effort to bring. Ah, little more, you know, Harmony is not the right word. But A little more civility to at least the opening statements for each segment. Dan how big a role do you expect the pandemic to play in this debate? Well, it's one of the segments and I think that everybody knows that it's the most important issue in the campaign. I mean, it has defined this general election in a way that no other issue has Condit has we know it has not been helpful to President Trump. So Vice President Biden has adopted a quite different approach to the pandemic. We see that in the degree to which she is Out campaigning far less than the president and not in big rallies, and the president is pushing ahead and trying to convince people that the pandemic is mostly behind us. Which it isn't on DH that we should go about life more or less normal. I think that debate will play out on the stage tonight, and I think that each each of the two will try to make their case. But At a time. When we're seeing the spread accelerate. It's going to be more difficult for the president to argue that this this is something that is almost behind us. And good to talk to again. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thanks. Dan. Balls is Washington Post Chief correspondent 3 14. Why's the sleep number.

"Um, in a lot of ways, he was really our first, um You know, mass Media political star on DH. It was this debate and those technological that technological revolution that allowed for I'm talking to Ben Judge who is the creator and executive producer of a Docuseries called Right Makes Might the Lincoln Douglas debates. Let me ask you about that technology point. Is it possible that because Telegraph wasn't actually bringing their voice but was only bringing their words that at that point, the advantage of being well spoken or good looking is erased by the fact that the people who read the words are reading the words only. They're not hearing the way you say them in much the same way that some of us get goofed up because you send somebody a text message where you mean one thing, But if they're just reading the words and they're not hearing the way you said them, it could be read an entirely different way. Lincoln benefited from that. He did he did. He did very much. He also benefited from the fact that he was taking on the most prominent politician. I mean, you think about it this way. This is the equivalent of in a Senate election in this year, eh? Counts. A member of the house back in 2014, who gets voted out in 2016 comes back now and runs against someone that's effectively the position linking within everyone who showed up and read these debates. Really was there to see Stephen Douglas. Um, you know, you talk about different you know how much people appreciated the words. They also appreciated if they wanted to see these men Go at it. Ah, lot of these debates of the seven debates that the two had a good number of them had over 10,000 people them. Wow, the smallest debate. Had only 1500. People always say, Well, that's not a big number compared to the others. Yes, but then you realize that that town and have a debate it was 1500 people showed up. That count only had 800 people in it in terms of its total population, So some people travel along. How how does this resonate today Been so we've had Nothing. It was fine when we started talking about making this said, Well, you know, we don't couple things we didn't know about this summer. We didn't know about Kogan. We knew there was going to be an election We knew based on everything that there might be A question in this election is a year ago, saying I bet we're gonna have a conversation about the character of America. Which is why you've got to see Ben Judges. New Docuseries called Right Makes Might the Lincoln Douglas debates. Imagine this a man out of Congress? A man unknown, a man standing on a platform next to somebody who's extraordinarily well known and a man who looked gawky and awkward and had a high pitched screeching voice.

That's 8664395277 Emails Go to talk at Lars Larson dot com. There's so many subjects who we talked about on this. Show. And we've talked about Abraham Lincoln recently because of some misstatements that were made by the young lady who is running for vice president of United States. Kamala Harris, who couldn't make it as a presidential candidate. So now she is going to be coming the stalking yours Stealth candidate by running with Joe Biden. There's a new docuseries out about Abraham Lincoln that maybe we can apply to our current election. And Ben Judge is the creator and the executive producer of the new Docuseries, Right? Makes Right makes might The Lincoln Douglas debates, then welcome to the program. Well, good to be here. Thanks for having me That's a tongue tripper for me, but I used to engage in Lincoln Douglas debates back in high school. It was it was interesting. It wasn't quite the way that Lincoln and Douglas debated back in the day. But tell me what your what your show in this new series and why people should sit down and take a look at it. Also the Serie The documentary goes from this Unknown. Lawyer who spent one term in Congress, and he's been out of four years. How that God we all know now is Abraham Lincoln. But at the time no one really outside the state of Illinois knew who he waas how that guy becomes the most prominent Republican and ultimately the most prominent politician and ultimately the most well known president in American history. Um And how that happens is really this one moment in time. Where in 18 58 he takes on The most well known Renzo and many people think that most well spoken Politician on the scene. Steven Douglas, for what is supposed to be Stephen Douglas is just quick trip through a Senate race on his way to becoming president. In 18 60. And Waiting for him in that race is This guy Abraham Lincoln. And this documentary is the story of how that launch Lincoln and ultimately sank. Uh, Stephen Douglas. Then let me ask you this because I think it is worth mentioning. I mean, I work in radio, and people often say you have a really nice voice, And that's a nice compliment has taken me 45 years to get here and I've been to Disneyland and I've seen the animatronic Lincoln. But I've also read enough about Lincoln because they're great books on the man to know that he wasn't his voice was not exactly the most pleasant voice. Speaking voice in the world. In fact it it might have been like fingernails on a chalkboard if some people described it, and that's significant because you're saying here's Stephen Douglas very well spoken, you know, top of his game, ready to walk in and mop the floor with this big, gangly, you know, looking guy, strange looking guy with a really strange voice. Oh, and that? Still, it must have been the power of his ideas that pushed through to effectively take him from that debate to the presidency. That's right. You know, he and you touched on it. Not only was his voice not all that nice to listen to Wasn't exactly an attractive guy. You know, Douglas at one point calls, winking to face and Lincoln shoots back that you know if he had another face used that, um It's not a guy who you look at and say all this central casting for a politician Um no. And but it was his ideas, and it was the clarity and forcefulness. With which he carried those ideas. That people by storm and what made that possible in your urine radius you can appreciate you've been in it for a long time. You can appreciate what technology has done to your industry has done to the world of radio. Lincoln was on the front edge of the technological revolution that, really he was the first political beneficiary. Telegraph is relatively new. Um railroads were being built. So not only was the Lincoln Douglas debates well covered locally, but it was really the first time. That debate that the words the candidates segue could be transmitted around the country pretty quickly within a week. Um That ultimately is what Let people in New York As well as Georgia and South Carolina. Know about this guy, Lincoln..

"The gaffes of yesterday, Joe Biden has called a lid on today, meaning no public appearances. No statements. He's trying to take the air. Out of the ball. When I was in high school. We engaged in something called Lincoln Douglas Debate. If your Children are considering Doing any sort of spoken word competition or Event. I would encourage you to do that. Because the more you do it, The better you get at it. Lincoln Douglas debate was based loosely on the format. That Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas used in their debate for the United States Senate. In the state of Illinois. There is a documentary that has been made entitled, Right makes Might this streaming on Fox nation right now. And the man who made that is Dr Ben Judge who is our guest. Dr. Judge tell us a little bit about this. I have not seen it yet, but I've read a review of what it's about. Tell us a little bit about it. Well, Michael thinks good to be with you. I You know it, we think and lot of Always thought it's it's particularly important debate, particularly important time in American history. Some of which for obvious reasons, But what the documentary covers is this period. In 18 58 in the lead up to that when This guy Abraham Lincoln is this Frontier lawyer. Not many people know about him outside of the state of Illinois. And he takes on The van who is considered the Most famous American politician at the time and the box. The man who many people think is going to solve the slavery problem once and for all, Stephen Douglas. And a lot of people think that Douglas is policy is going to be what unites the nation and Lincoln looks at it and says, Oh, no, this is going to be what ends up breaking the nation. This is going to be what undermines everything the nation was founded on And so the documentary tells the story. Of Him going on that journey of taking on the greatest political figure at the time and becoming The person we know today, Uh and that's that's the story of the documentary. Why? Why make this What What interested you about this? Why did you think people needed to know this? Show out of coming out of Claremont. You know, I was a product of Ah. Ah, student of Harry Jaffa, who wrote very famous book on the debates are a lot of people at the Claremont and Student and affiliated places. Study. Uh, Abraham Lincoln. We felt it was important now, so I've always always thought it was important. But why now? Is you've got the country. In a divided place, but also having a very serious conversation. About what How you define rights. How you define what is right. How do you define what is wrong? And how do you define the rights that every individual as a human being has. We're having a lot of discussions about that right now whether it's defined based on group Whether it's defined based on other factors. And probably the most serious, the most important debate that we have ever had in American history on that question. Is the Lincoln Douglas Debates. Interesting. It's It was fascinating to me, having done Lincoln Douglas debates and on a basic, cursory review in high school and then getting to college and understanding. That Lincoln I lost that election as he had been losing before and goes on to be elected president. But to understand that his great role for which he is remembered prior to the presidency isn't an election that we forget. He lost. Right, right. Yeah, And you know something about that. It's it's ah. It has ah, linked to today. What makes Lincoln A well known figure throughout the country. Yes, it's the quality of his. Ah! Peaches. Yes, it's it's the forcefulness of his argument. But the reason anyone is seeing that is because of the technological revolution occurring at the time. With the railroads with the telegraph. This was the first time that someone in the Midwest that you and that you in Ah, New York or South Carolina. Could read the speeches of a politician in Illinois in a place that was Not close to you Not close to a local paper. Um This is the first election where you really saw that. So Lincoln you know, we say on the documentary and hold by Lincoln in a lot of ways is that first mass. Media Political star is the first one to really take advantage of the changes in technology to propel himself. To become the most prominent Republican and ultimately the Republican nominee in 18 60. There is a quote in the film that I read from Professor Lucas Morale of Washington and Lee. The American people were beginning to lose the language of the founders, they were beginning to lose a way of speaking about themselves as fellow citizens. It reminded them of their common purpose, their common humanity and their common possession of individual rights. Today. We don't hear that language very much. So 80 years into the nation's founding, they were already conscious conscious that Lincoln's era was already conscious that we are losing that which brought us together from colonists to Americans from Virginians to Americans. And boy is that ever relevant to where we are today? That's right. And it tells you the importance of American history. You can't You know, American history isn't simply a subject to be studied. It's the fabric that actually grounds. How we understand ourselves as citizens. And as human beings in this country. We have a great founding, but to appreciate it to appreciate all that. You can't just pay lip service to it. You have to think seriously about the ideas that informed it and how those inform your own time because and winking Love. Professor Morel brings this up and Lincoln understood this Europe. You're only ever one generation away. Um That's the real lesson. I think of Ah, Lincoln's time and it's obviously very applicable Dar's well, he said. You go from The mindset of the classroom will be the mindset of your government in one generation, And it's true howto folks find this Then they goto they go to vaccination vaccination dot com I and It's right there..

"All top everybody gets to jump over her. But I have these debates outlived their usefulness mean honestly with social media, especially these candidates. It's not like we don't know what they think. And I don't think debates change one vote. Nowadays I understand why the TV networks want them because it's revenue. The prestige, I guess I I love the fact that they're tamping down and having live audiences. I thought that made the whole thing into a circus anyway. I like I agree with you completely. I guess what I would say. The main thing that I take away from these is that they're not debates The Maur the moderator controls on the more They're two parallel interviews like a Sunday morning TV show conducted by a Chris Wallace and he says to one interviewee. Here is what question I want you to answer. He says to the next interviewee, either. Could you answer the same question? Would you answer a different one? But in fact, what they really ought to do is subject to even time. Period. Say that subject here is the economy. Could you go first? Mr Trump? You have two minutes, giving two minutes and then let the other side respond, and then you responded back to debate. Can you imagine what it must have been, like all those years ago to sit through a Lincoln Douglas debate downstate someplace there and 3.5 4 hours and you're mesmerized. People in those days paid attention. Aristotle Socrates. I mean, that's how we used to discuss things. Well, Yeah, um people like Abraham Lincoln who was misquoted? Of course by Kamala Harris. Ah, Ah. I mean, these people were knew how to debate and in fact, those debates served a real function beyond educating the population. In the case of a Lincoln Douglas debate, he Of Lincoln painted Douglas into a position which proved to be ah, really impossible for him to get out of witty ran for president about what should happen. To slavery in the Western states. So these were smart, capable people of but I guess I would say, uh, President Trump has mastered the newer medium.

"Amazing disgrace. The first presidential debate of the season descends into chaos, insult, interruption and confused and a lot of words being used by Republicans and Democrats alike to describe none of it Good. Embarrassing, disgraceful train wreck. This thing quickly deteriorated, a debate focused on the highest office in the land reaching a new low. Now, listen. Some of that is fact that debate was chaos. If you compare it, I mean, other debates have been chaos. The Lincoln Douglas debates were not as polite as people think they were, You know, but it was chaos. And I would even go further and say that they are correct that it is Donald Trump, who instigated the chaos by constantly interrupting. That is also that's also the case and we'll show you how that's Spun on both sides. But the idea that that it was Donald the disgrace was Donald Trump. Interrupting, which I would say That's fine, but not Joe Biden lying and ducking and non answering questions, and the Joe Biden was somehow like a little. You know, he's a little innocent lamb. I called the show slugger mugs, Grandpa, you know, like that Trump was this bully. But Gil Biden was just this kind of innocent old man who happened to be walking by debates page when Trump went off on him, You know, that's that's the part where they're trying to To shape your mind. That's why you know that I was not. I was joking about the debate Commission, which is this antiquated, ridiculous idea that should be gotten rid of. But But the division the commission that oversees the these debates, said it will make changes to the format of the remaining two debates. And this, according to CBS one key change of plans to implement cutting off the microphones of Trump and Biden if they break the rules. This is, according to sources, an anonymous report. I think about that for a minute again. Use your imagination. How's that going to go? Well, how is it possible? How is it possible that it won't be used against Donald Trump? How is it possible that they're not gonna go after Trump, who is more aggressive? He's more aggressive aggression is part of a debate. You want that part of the debate, But how is it possible? They're not going to be cutting off his mike? Every two seconds they are And you know, maybe that would be good for Trump. Maybe it would show people just how vicious they are, Although I don't know if that's the case. I'm not sure. Whether people have the sympathy for Trump that would make him understand what the media was doing. So let's take a look at Trump. Trump spends the debate his way. And maybe it was part of his strategy to be this aggressive. I suspect personally that there was no strategy a suspect personally that basically, his team said to one be aggressive, which was like saying to a pit bull. Here's some meat. You know you you don't need to tell Trump Be aggressive, but here's how he's spinning it. There's a cup tent. Last night. I did what the corrupt media has refused to. Dio held Joe Biden accountable for his 47 years of live 47.

How the Supreme Court Operates

"Professor of law at the University of Texas School of Law and executive director of just security and senior editor of the Law. Fair Blonde. He's here to talk about the U. S. Supreme Court from how the nation's high court operates to the confirmation process for Supreme Court. Justice is a process that will be front and center. Throughout the month of October. Steve thanks so much for the time and let's start At the very beginning, The founders set up this novel system of government involving three different branches, one being the judicial branch. What was the vision that they articulated an article three of the Constitution really, the core purpose of the judiciary. Yeah, I mean, the very fact that it's a separate article actually is the beginning of the story because in England, you know from which we were breakin the judiciary was not independent. The court was called the Katie's sketch on Go. The founder's put the courts in their own article entirely because the founders thought that a critical part of preserving our rights was to have an independent judiciary that could in appropriate circumstances after the checkup on potential charity of the majority, So from the start, the idea was that we would have Independent judges who were not politically accountable, who, in appropriate cases could have the power to do the obligation to strike down democratic laws. But democratic laws that were nevertheless in violation of the Constitution. Supreme Court always seems to be a hot button issue. These days, Some people cast their ballots in presidential races specifically because of the possibility a seat on the bench could open up. Has it always been that way? It really has been followed. I mean, I think you know there are periods in American history, where the court with a huge issue, I mean the dread Scott decision for the Supreme Court really goes out of its way to put its stamp on the institution of slavery in 18 57 became a galvanizing part of 1st 18 58 Senate race in the Lincoln Douglas debates and then the 18 50 presidential election. But I think what's different about today is that The court look so much like the rest of the country that you know the court really is divided and polarized into much of the same two camps as so many of us and that's why I think folks tend to see high profile cases before the court in such partisan terms and, you know debates over confirmation. Such partisan turns because increasingly looks like the court is just another institution divided into two parties based on who's in charge of the time. There've been some discussions. As of late over the amount of justice is that should be on the court or whether or not justice is should serve for life may be implementing term limits. How are those decisions made in the past and what flexibility does Congress have to potentially make changes to the court? Yeah, In the side of the court is perhaps the easier one Because there's just no question that the court is to some degree. It lied to Congress is controlling that that you know, Congress has overtime. Barry the size of the court at the Fountain, There are actually six justices. We had many of 10 for a short period of time in the sixties before settling in the current number of 1918 59. So you know there's nothing unconstitutional. I've got a statute that would say, added 234. C To the court. I think the tricky part is, you know, if you start down that road, then you Republicans the next time they're in charge at their own speed to the court, and what does that do for the court legitimacy in the long term, But at least it's a matter of pure constitutional law is up to Congress. As on there's at least one justice. How many more than one of the question of legislative grace On term limits that met here because we've actually never seen Congress, you know, try to do anything other than allow life tenure for justice is the Constitution doesn't say like tenure, it says, you know, the justices are allowed to hold their offices during quote, good behavior, unquote. But of course, you know that doesn't answer the question of what it means to hold their office. Could Congress give them different responsibilities? Good Congress keep paying them, but tell them to do nothing. These are questions that Supreme Court's never really had to answer because A question Congress hadn't really ever provoked. So you know, at least on that one. I think we're in a bit more of uncharted territory. The purpose behind the lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. Why did the founders believe that was necessary? Yes, it was a big part of independence that you know when you have a judge, say who don't serve in the five or 10 year term, You know, here. She might be making decisions for reasons other than because they think they're the right decisions They might be, you know, looking over their shoulder at what their next job is gonna be there. They might be trying to sort of curry favour with whoever's in power tow. You perhaps be reappointed reporting to different position. So the founders thought that one of the ways of ensuring independence was job protection was making clear that You know, you don't have to worry about finding other jobs. You don't have to worry about having your paid diminished if you hand down unpopular decision as a way of just saying it, like the judges and justices would not be beholden to political pressures. Especially when Nick an unpopular decision, and one other area where Congress has control over the judiciary, including the Supreme Court is impeachment power. Certainly not something you see exercised very often, but the power's there, right Yeah, I mean, like any other federal officers, judges and justices there. Seven to impeachment. There's only been one impeachment of justice on the Supreme Court in all American history that you know five when the Jeffersonians tried to impeach arch Federalist Samuel Chase of and it failed, mostly because it was preceded. A political future is not a good one. But there are lower court judges who have been impeached fairly often for I think what we would all agree to it is clear misconduct. So you know there are checks on the court. And Peter did one of them. You know, Congress has at least some power over the jurisdiction of the federal courts decide which cases they got to hear. Congress control most of the budget of the federal court, So it's not that the court unaccountable that the accountability comes in different ways and not necessarily the ballot box. And that's part of how we ensure that courts are able to protect the rights of minorities, which is perhaps the most important function. I'm joined by Steve

"And and this could be a much more blatant answer that I just don't understand. Why is it automatically? The people that have a problem with third party voters? You're going to get Trump elected. I don't know if there is there. Is there no crossover from the other side that maybe That vote could have went to. I don't know. I just I don't know why. That seems to be the line where a third party vote is a vote for Trump wins. When there seems to be so many people on both sides generally turned off right by the entire process and by these candidates, I think it's because the activation of the anti trump crowd is so passionate and so So driven that they view as any vote. Besides the one that they want you to vote is a vote in the wrong direction, which all due respect. I'm going to vote the way I want a vote, right? Um Lincoln and Douglas really started the history of the debate. Like when I debated in high school, I was I did Lincoln Douglas debate, and that was You had a point that you would argue. You would make your three points. Your opponent would try to refute your three points. And then whoever was whomever was successful would win the debate. And they did that. Because when late when Lincoln I believe was running for president Was it, Stephen Douglas. That was running against him, and they had a series of passionate yet respectful debates. What happened last night was the exact antithesis of a Lincoln Douglas debate the rest of the world and the rest of the galaxy. If there were aliens somehow watching Chris Wallace fail to take control over that thing last night, which I don't know how he could have Without a without a cattle prod. It was an embarrassment. It's an embarrassment that these are our candidates. It's an embarrassment the way they handled themselves. It's an embarrassment the way it was set up where you have rules, yet they're going to run roughshod over those rules. What A nightmare of a debate I felt in, you know. There are a lot of details, which I'm sure will dig into later. But I felt bad for Wallace at times, because, like you said, I don't know who could do anything differently, right? And maybe a times he went it Trump a little harder than he wanted by. Maybe if you want to break down the tape, but for the most part when he tried to keep it, you know, just keep it. Civil Jordan. It was like it times. Neither one of the candidates even realized that he was speaking in those moments when all three of them were talking at the same time. I wanted to jam an ice pick in my eye ball all the worst. And in order for Chris Wallace to do an effective job, he would have had to have had the respect of Donald Trump, and he obviously does not. I, at first was very frustrated with Chris Wallace as a moderator, because I didn't think that he was doing a good job. And then I realized short of muting their microphones.

Well, let's just say it's a land of 1000 lakes, and that's why I wanted a lot of people. Oh, it's sort of like, but it be interesting to find out from them what their key issues I think up here. It's the economy because a lot of them they're into mining into heavy farming. Our job loss, right, right. So let's see what becomes their Ah, the campaign events today in northern northern Minnesota. Let's go to Brian, who's calling from Long Island. Welcome to Curtis and Jets had Juliet Brian Hey, so to be very honest with you that the base is a waste of time. Specially this time around. I think it's nonsensical and What did it make? Donald Trump knew he knew the threat of covert 19 back in January that did nothing about it. He is guilty of criminal negligent homicide of 200,000 Americans. I'm done. American President. An American president knew such a right by and look great, Brian, How about this? Wouldn't you want to question Ah, Ah, disappointed that Ah Sheehan and did not ask this last night. What was your name again? The host Anderson Cooper. Ah, Xin Cooper. You know, because obviously, a lot of Biden's attempt was to attack Trump for his Corona virus policy is an essential of at least sent it but you were opposed to him stopping flights from China. Don't force into a dress that I think Trump will do that 100% and you know that they've already He's already got his answer. But I want to hear that. Come on, people. Lincoln Douglas debate. Can you imagine Douglas was favored? I don't think people realize this Lincoln and never wanted one. Any election. He lost all of its elections. So here is Lincoln Douglas Debates for the Senate seat in Illinois. They're going around Douglas. Pre gone favorite. He won anyway. Could you imagine if Douglas had said I don't need for debates? I'm well ahead in the head count. They didn't call it pulling then but the head count This is part of our political process Tohave debate anyway, Let's go to Ah Paul, who's calling from Rego Park well in the Curtis and Jet, said Juliet Pole. Hey, Hey, guys, How you doing? Hi. You know the guy. There's only one guy for the job, too, but in debate to practice with the Trump, and that's Alec Baldwin position they hire I would Baldwin and alone he needs so practices his sparring match with so wait, Who do they have as bite? And now who was just announced yesterday? Oh, yeah. Jim Carey will be playing Biden, Maya Rudolph Kamala Harris like that'll be interesting. I mean, the guy with the rubber face that'll be. I don't know how that's gonna work. That's pretty photo. It's plausible. Because who has anger management issues? Alec Baldwin, Donald Trump, right? They can get very angry in public, not just private. We've seen the president really get angry in public. We've seen Alec Baldwin really get angry. That to me would not be a bad choice. So you know, they've got probably psychologists along there on the side saying, Okay, bite and listen when he goes after your son, Here's what you have to do when you start getting that just that anger and your blood is just about to boil, then just calm down. Or if he goes after you know your family member. Here's what you have to do. I mean, I'm sure that all of that has been Listen, Curtis. He was in the basement for for quite a while. There's no excuse for you to have a poor performance. He should be practicing, and he should been practicing back then. And I think he probably wass, you know, debate unfortunately, evolved sometimes into a fight. And I have seen people including myself. You realize you have a vulnerability. So you train you say, let me train train train so that it doesn't happen again. You're in the middle of a fight. What the hell is, after all the training and thinking in the world, you revert to what you typically would do, right? Yes. And with Trump he just throw. He just keeps throwing punches. He just He's a haymaker goes out there. Yeah, he might punch himself out. He's sort of like what? George form and wass. When he was in his eye. A year in that battle with Muhammed Ali Muhammed Ali knew Judge Formance to strong He's knocked out people he hit Joe Frazier, onetime Joe Frazier went up like 4 ft. Me you looked at, it means that there's no way so he figured on play Ropa. Don't remember how Ali just stay on the ropes and just tire him out right And it was in Central Africa. So the humidity tired of punch, inform and punched and punched himself out. Ali didn't even really have to hit him. But I don't know if he can play rope a dope foot with Donald Trump for 90 minutes. You know it comes down to has. Biden basically just said I am yours to mold to his advisors He had if he you know if he thinks he can walk in there, you know, because he's got this 50 year tenure as a senator, and he's done. Abates before he's going to lose. I mean, he was going to get creamed. If he's listening to advisers, and he's just constantly I'm telling you, I am so certain I would bet my life on it that he has been. He is being peppered when they're in the cars driving When they're on the flights. He's being thrown question after question, taunt after taunt and Yeah, I mean, it's a different situation when you're on the stage, but If it's been going on for a long time. If he's been practicing for three months. I know this may be a tough sell because Biden likes to scrap and he likes to scrap with People attending the rallies before the lock down. Jesus Crap. Yeah. I would say to him, don't you want your whole thing is civility? I want to return She ability to the White House, right? It sure temporarily. It'll look like this guy's You know, much stronger that you Keep the same tone. Try the same tone throughout the debate, and ultimately you win the debate on that note, But you if you get suckered in to being macho man with Trump Then you're you're on his turf, agreed..

"This characteristic my position cross the board. I did not praise racist that is not true. Number one. Number two, if we want to have this campaign litigated, who supports civil rights, whether I did or not, I'm happy to do that. I was a public defender. I didn't become a prosecutor. I came out, and I left a good law firm to become a public defender. When in fact, when, in fact. In fact. In fact, my city was inflamed because of the fastest Dr king number one number two, as US says excuse me, as the vice president is states. I worked with the man who in fact, we worked very hard to see to it. We don't with these issues in a major, major way, the fact is that in terms of the busing, I never would have been able to go to school, the same exact way because it was a local decision made by your city council. That's fine. That's one of these argued for that we should not be we should be breaking down these lines. But so the bottom line here is everything I've done in my career, I ran because civil rights, I continue to think we have to make fundamental changes in civil rights and civil rights, by the way include not so many African Americans but the LGBT community vice president, do you agree to do you agree today that you were wrong to oppose busing in America? Then do you agree are? Did not oppose busing in America. What I pose is bussing ordered by the department of education. That's when I posed. Your faith to engineering schools in America. I was part of the second class to integrate Berkeley, California, Public schools, almost two decades after Brown v board of education, because your city council made that decision was that. That must them in. That's why we need to because there are moments in history faith fail to preserve the civil rights are deported from the Verity Genting thirty seconds. I want to bring other lender yards from the very beginning. I'm the guy that extended the Voting Rights Act for twenty five years. We got to the place where we got ninety eight ninety eight votes, the United States Senate doing it. Also argued very strongly that we've fact deal with the notion of the nine people access to the ballot box. I agree that everybody wants say, in five times, Dr or there's so much on which to chew in this five minutes. I wanna give you I an opportunity to give your general reaction to that exchange which has been replayed on my show, four times on every other media outlet across the country. Well. We've reached the place in America, where opposing bussing children long, distances to integrate schools is racist. But of course, parents have a profound reason to want to their kids are going to be writing on buses for a long time. And it's time they're not working in school, and it's time. They're tired, right? So let's like bussing or not. It has some bad effects. The other thing is his news stuck with a difficult because he seems to admit the primitive, so the art being into possessing racist. Yes, yes, but, but, but until then he hangs his hat on. I'm in favor of busing city council orders that, but not if government orders, and that's an amazing bow to constitutionalism into companies that he's keeping these days. So it's hard to see how that will work for him. And I and I lost to say hard to see how exactly this will work for camel Harris because, you know, this picture of American society that, that, you know, racial violence is, is common is. You know, is that true? I mean it used to be true that the law was used to hold people in their place. A form of that truth today, because the inner cities are mass, although employment is rising in, which seems to me the answer. So, you know it's. Did you know nothing? It's what's happening on many college campus. They think not might. She's hurt and wounded by something that Joe Biden did forty years ago. But here's she stands, powerful woman seeking vantage. So she's the victim and she's the bully also said something, and she ferried smart. I think she invited you Twen it can't just be an intellectual. It can't be an intellectual debate among Democrats. And I thought to the Lincoln Douglas debates, which I explained Chautauqua yesterday. Seven of them an hour for the first beaker an hour and a half for the second speaker and a half hour to the first Baker seven times we've talked about them at length before those were intellectual debates of the highest order, Dr on. And there we had anti intellectualism just put out there. Moreover, we also had extra constitutionalism the equal rights amendment people saying pass it, it was limited by its own terms to a. March nineteen Seventy-nine deadline fell short of its thirty eight states that deadline was extended June of nineteen eighty two and it fell short. It's dead. You can't revive it. But they indulged that for the purposes of pandering. It's Platon tely demagogic in remember difference about these debate. I read in the Wall Street Journal this morning, fifteen people watch these debates, and that's a big healthy audience. Last year, the Republican debates going twenty four million, and that's Trump is a crowd. But. These debates because the media, there are gatekeepers. Whereas in the Lincoln Douglas debate the two guys had to fit their own crowd. And they, you know, the largest crowds in American history. They it's far as we can tell and why because there was a huge issue under debate. And these two guys squared off in a turning point state, and they both. Well as Douglas had a huge reputation when it began and Lincoln had a huge reputation with ended so that drama was produced naturally by the political system. And this is powerfully affected by the simple fact that, that works got an audience. And so, and, you know who gets in these tailed rules? So your favorite, Mr. deline, it's, you know, thirty seconds and somehow that's because he doesn't have. Nobody knows who he is. And there's some rule about that. But there's no naturalness too. And you're right. I think that talent has way winning out anyway. You're saying that camel Harris is pounded. And, you know, the slur against her is that she's not. And, you know, just looked like she did pretty well. And I think that rhetoric matters, and that eloquence is underrated and that Americans grudgingly here and respond to it, and that measured rhetoric even if that is full of straw. Mayor Pete was wins. And that being bumble and stumbling. That's why the Lincoln Douglas debates if I recommended that you talk with David strap than Richard Dreyfuss narration that you and I spent so much time on their marvelous, and they were at such a high level and many of the people, they were talking to probably couldn't read Larry art. Well literacy rates back then where they really. Oh, yeah. And they. You know that not like today. But. It's also important, what did they read? They read the King, James bible, and six peers place and homes tended to if they had books. They had those two and remember that the King, James bible and Shakespeare's plays were produced at the same time wrestling in England. The translation of the King James bible, he's basing language. And so they, you know, and Lincoln himself, you know, who's pours anybody ever grew up to be president United States almost pours anybody ever group, simply? Lincoln headed detailed knowledge of Shakespeare's plays, and he had the translate. The reproduction of the printing, publishing of them was inconsistent back in those days, and he had several copies of MacBeth, and he went to mini performances of it could compare the differences and say, which one he thought was the actually the accurate one and he have long discourse about that. Well, he was talking to a lot of people who had similar interests and similar educate. We'll come back and talk about that. We're going to talk about the supreme court as well. Which did a couple of very important things yesterday, which I will discoursed with Dr Larry Arnn. We come back over. Now, let me tell you about relief factor dot com, which I think I've sent the Larry Arnn. I think I saw it lying around over it at the Kirby Center when I was last there. And for this reason, Larry's actually working out walking around zipping up and down the college campus and up and down the steps at the Kirby Center, which you got more steps than any other building. I approach. In Washington DC, except the congress and I don't know what they do in the wintertime, when they're AC. But if you fall down your shovel the snow you'll need relief.

"lincoln douglas" Discussed on High Noon

"Dominique what's your reaction to hearing that? And that's fine. I guess it's fine. But it's stupid. Like, I don't completely understand why he would do this. So first of all he is nobody like the name you read what's been rough as burger not even Colbert, despite the fact that there's a tweet and it's stupid because it's one wrong and is strategically ineffective. Ben Rothlisberger has reputation created by Tonio Brown and other teammates of being part of ownership. So by you saying this further alienates him and suggesting that his teammates our kids and somehow been rothlisburger only jed in the. That's so disrespectful to a room full of grown men with their body on the line to get to this point. And it's not helping been is not helping to players. I think who is he's trying to win over by. Join it seems like he's trying to win over Ben Rothlisberger, which is funny because the entire point of Antonio Brown, and that whole drama was that he had special treatment that felt inequitable, but I can relate to this any human can relate to this Dominique when I was in high school, we discovered that a team mate of mine on the Lincoln Douglas debate team was going on L debate dot org ever been there. It's a it's a website for high school debate gossip on the forums under a fake name. And trash talk me. He tried to talk Benner on a radio show under his name. How would any of those teammates feel about that? Well, when I was in the NFL, I understood the NFL that we do like, this whole thing is that the mud all NFL culture idea that they're saying this is ok okay. Tom Brady doesn't do this. The whole thing about NFL cultures. All the players are supposed to be the same. Get we parade around the patriots because Bill Belichick yells at Brady the same way, he yelled at the patriot way. And like, this is not something that you ever see happen..
