"Simply based on an assertion by secretary of state. Tony blinken and speaking of assertions made by the biden state department just recently on monday april twelfth a staggering claim was made by a state department official as documented by. Vox reporter alex ward after mounting pressure from congressional democrats activists on the biden administration the blinken state department to respond to specifically pressure from ro khanna bernie. Sanders have been trying to get biden to lean on the saudis. Stop the blockade which they very much have the ability to do which is why democrats are asking him to do it. The state department. Through a spokesman by alex ward. He asked him about the blockade he. People have been trying to get a response from the lincoln state department. The white house and they did something very strange. They said quote. It is not a blockade which is strange because the saudis have been referring to it as a block aid for the past few months and indeed have offered to ease the blockade in exchange for concessions from these easing the blockade that they're enforcing that the us is now claiming doesn't exist but they're proud that does exist because the problem is is that blinken who's doing you know going around doing all minded skull the human rights shit. There's a contradiction at the heart of this rate benevolent empires. The sanctimony is empire is built on a contradiction and those contradictions right and a case ever noticed one of things we do in the show is exposed. The contradictions heightened the contradictions as it were. And so he can't square the circle and say well this blockade is actually useful or go to because that that undermines again just two hours prior the head of us aid samantha. Power talked about five point five million refugees from venezuela and it's the worst humanitarian disaster unearth all due to the jim forget the that biden still has the brutal trump sanctions on venezuela which cheaper calculated till forty thousand people a year which.

But he's kept the much like you by the way he's kept all the uranium sanctions by the way of course even know those were supposed to be radical barbaric sanctions. We were told when trump was in office but biden hasn't gotten rid of them in. So they're gambit was to just deny a blockade. Which when you stop and think about is pretty much the only thing they can do like they can't justify it and can't oppose it because they support saudi arabia and they support the war..

The south is avenge supposedly. That's what he said right. And that was one of the main. Things are really caught my attention when i was researching this because when when you read stuff like that and that type of language you go oh shit. Some some witchcraft type ship. But it was like you know pretty much he was he was a means of us. Ever to tyrants we see that right he probably had abraham lincoln derangement syndrome.

"What was so interesting to watch was how these rivals eventually some of them turned toward an understanding and a love for Lincoln Chase, the secretary of Treasury. Never did. He tried to run against Lincoln in 18 64. But then amazingly, Lincoln appoints him Chief Justice of the Supreme Court even after that treachery, knowing he'll be the best man for the black man. Um What did you talk to me a little bit about one or the other of Salmon Chase and Edward Baits. People have at least heard a little bit about Seward because they know of Alaska and Seward's folly with these other guys. Interesting. Well, salmon Chase was fascinating, partly because his ambition was never safe, satisfied. He so wanted to be president, United States that even though he was secretary of the Treasury governor, Senator And eventually, Supreme Court chief justice. It was like a missing link in his heart. And I think partly that ambition came from a very sad private life. His first wife died in childbirth, and 25. His second wife died in her thirties. The next one died at 32. How you absorb that? It's hard to know. But he had a daughter, the most beautiful girl of her age in Washington during the Civil War who became his surrogate wife. And she was so ambitious for her father that she married a very wealthy older man Sprague, so that the million dollars could help his her father's political career and ended up sadly, she could have had any suitors she wanted. He turned out to be a very difficult husband abused her and she ended up in poverty. So that's circled tube was so interesting to me when you get into these people's diaries and letters. And you understand what their private lives their life. It just I think enforces the public side as well. How did Lincoln win that presidential nomination if he wasn't expected to? Well, I think partly it happened. He was lucky that it was in Chicago, his home his home. It's not his particular home, but his state home and they were able to pack the hall with Lincoln supporters. Partly because he had not made enemies all along the way, which each of his rivals had done. Everybody who had met Lincoln State of friend and in fact, people that had heard him earlier had become friends. Partly that he worked harder on it than any of the other ones did some of them took it for granted. And also because the speeches he had given in the 18 fifties were so filled with the moral quality that people knew that if they couldn't have Seward, the most radical of them all, Lincoln would be the best to protect anti slavery. A lot of things came together. There was no TV. There were no photographs. So did a candidate running national elections by having people read his speeches. Exactly so the speeches would be well. First of all people would come I mean, 10,000 people would come to the debates, for example, in 18 58 when he was running for Senate against Stephen Douglas 10,000. People would come from all over to listen to him Speak for four hours. I mean, it's inconceivable today, right? But they'd picnic. That was there It was the sport. It would be like baseball or or sports today, politics was the spectator sport. And a participant sport. I mean, they'd be screaming from the from the rafters that that you know. Yes. No, I don't like what you said. And then their speeches would be printed in full in the newspapers, and then they'd be put into pamphlets and distributed all around the country. So we got much more of their actual thoughts than we do today. With the sound bites, Doris, you've spoken about how much time you spent with other Lincoln books and his original documents to write this book. Where were there Some unanswered questions. You were looking to answer by researching this book. You know, I think the most important thing I had to do was to bring Lincoln toe life for me and was going to take 10 years, which meant he was by my side that entire time, and I had to be able to understand what it was like to live day by day during his era, and that's why the primary source of of so valuable because you're really reading letters that somebody wrote to somebody else. You're reading aural histories. You're reading descriptions of what it was like to go in the White House, you know, And in the 18 sixties, anybody could walk into the White House seeking a job. There were no guards stations outside you could on New Year's Day Anyone was invited in to bring their muddy boots into shake hands with Abraham Lincoln. And it's that kind of detail that I think you're looking for so that you can feel the presence of these people in the past and imagine that you're actually talking to them even during this period of time. So what was it about the texture of Lincoln's life of Lincoln's personality that really became real to you? As you were able to spend so much time with the stuff? There were a couple things one thing was that I had known of him is a great statesman, but I hadn't realized what a brilliant politician he was. I mean, so many people today could take a lesson from the way he dealt with all these various people, many of whom were in contention with one another. When he made a mistake. He acknowledged it easy to do you know, Grant you were right. I was wrong. But how many politicians could do that today? When he got angry with someone he would write what they called a hot letter. For example, when General me didn't follow up with General Lee after Gettysburg. He knew that the war was going to go on longer, and he wrote him a letter saying, Oh, this is a terrible thing that you've done, etcetera. He never sent it never signed it. He got it out of his system, and he somehow was able to repair animosities. If he changed his mind on something he would just say. I'd like to believe I'm smarter today than I was yesterday. So there was so many ways. He had an extraordinary emotional intelligence that allowed him to deal with people, and he kept his decency and sensitivity and kindness And usually, those don't help you in politics, the rough and tumble sports that we think it is. But in the hands of a great politician, they turn out to be terrific Political resource is but you also see him, don't you as not just a kind and sensitive and empathetic but also manipulative, well, manipulative in a very positive sense, Yes, he knew what he wanted. He knew he wanted a constitutional amendment on slavery. He knew he Wanted to get to emancipation. He knew he wanted chase to not win that election in 18 64. So he was able it never hurt people deliberately. But he certainly understood went to time Things went to get somebody else to go against somebody else. He was. He was a very practical politician, and that made it more interesting for me than if he was just some statesmen up in the sky. Michael Lind also has a new book on Lincoln. What they can believe in. It takes the position that Lincoln was no racial progressive he envisioned in America devoid of black people who would have left voluntarily for Africa. And Ah, he wouldn't have gone to war against the South over slavery. We've heard that before on Lee over defying federal authority. Do you agree? Well, the sad truth is that the overwhelming majority of people who lived in that period of time were racist. There was a prejudice that was built into the north as well as the south. There were laws in these various states. In Illinois, For example, if you were black, you couldn't sit on a jury..

"Andrew Johnson swearing in as vice president was not quickly forgotten by those who witnessed it. Can Senators Zachariah Chandler said of the event the inauguration went off very well except that the vice president-elect was too drunk to perform his duties and disgraced himself and the Senate by making drunken foolish speech I was never. So mortified in my life had been able to find a whole I would have dropped threw it out of sight. Seeking to reassure people Abraham Lincoln stated I've known Andy Johnson for many years. It has been severe lesson for Andy, but I do not think he'll do it again. Lincoln was right and Johnson never appeared drunk publicly after that. But people still question Johnson's fitness for office in the weeks after the incident some even called for his resignation and it all came into much sharper focus when Lincoln was assassinated just a few weeks later and Johnson was elevated to the presidency. In this episode, we'll investigate the turmoil, Johnson single term and his battles with the Republicans in Congress party that will transform itself into America's Grand Old Party and ascendancy to last over seventy years a period that we'll see the rise of the populous movement and the progressives, and we'll explore the republican rift led to a major third party run by you or Roosevelt in the nineteen twelve election. For the third time in little over two decades, president had died in office like William Henry Harrison in eighteen forty one Abraham. Lincoln had died just weeks into his second term it left his vice president almost a full four years to lead the country. In a period of profound partisanship Andrew Johnson was a rare moderate who exasperated both Republicans and Democrats like Lincoln He'd been born into poverty and was a self made man but he was a proud southerner, a champion of states rights who had spent much of his career fighting against abolition of sentiment yet he'd also made enemies out of some southern Democrats by opposing the plantation aristocracy in favor of the common man. At the outbreak of the civil war Johnson had been a senator from Tennessee when Tennessee seceded in June of eighteen sixty, one, Johnson fled to Washington he became the only senator from a seceded state to remain in the US Congress his motives were complicated. He believes secession was just an extreme form of nullification which hero. Andrew. Jackson had fought against in the eighteen thirties but he also knew that the leaders of the new confederacy were his political enemies and he'd likely have little influence in the confederate government if you join them. His loyalty to the Union brought him a level of prominence in politics and led to his choice as Lincoln's running mate in eighteen, sixty four putting a war democrat on the ticket with Republican. Lincoln was a perfect way to illustrate Lincoln's coalition of supporters from across the political spectrum. But after Lincoln's assassination, the coalition faltered Republicans had majorities in both chambers of Congress. They had expected to work closely with a Republican president to rebuild the country after the war. Instead in Johnson, they faced a southern Democrat who had personally own slaves just three years before. Still many Republicans were optimistic about Johnson, early, on Lincoln's policies toward the south were seen by many in Congress as too lenient Johnson on the other hand had pushed for harsher treatment of the south. After Johnson became president radical. Republican. Ben Wade told him. We have faith in you by the Gods. There will be no trouble.

The challenge to repair roads and water lines on a tight budget in a hurry and try to contain the ongoing economic damage caused by this year Spudding for NPR news. I'm Frank Morrison. Boyd county Nebraska. Apologies to a high. Oh, if you've never heard of the Columbus, blue jackets, you're definitely not alone. On the flip side the Tampa Bay Lightning wish they'd never heard of the blue jackets. The lightning were by far the best team in the National Hockey League. In fact, there was a time like just over a week ago that you could say they were one of the best teams ever know team in NHL history had ever won more games in the regular season. Now contrast that with the Columbus blue jackets, an unlikely bunch they barely squeaked into the playoffs. Their first round matchup supposed to be a walkover. Instead the lightning were on. Columbus won its first playoff series ever. With sweep that still has experts like my next guest wondering what happened. Greg wish Inskeep is senior NHL writer for ESPN. He's co host of the puck soup podcast joins me now via Skype. Welcome to the program. The help us understand just how good were the lightning before this collapse. Oh, quite good. They had sixty two wins in the regular season that tied. The all time NHL record for wins in a season. This was a team that was doing historic things in the regular season. Consider this thirty of their sixty two victories where by three goals or more. So every time they stepped on the ice. They weren't just winning. They were blowing away their opponents. So safe to say any sane hockey analyst, basically would have said that the lightning was going to win this series. Right. So what happened? Well, I think lightning defenseman. Ryan mcdonagh put it best everything that they did. So well in the regular season the Columbus, blue jackets, did it better in this series. But the bigger picture is this the lightning they clinched a playoff spot in early March. They've been on cruise control for months the Columbus. Jackets had to win seven of their last eight games just to get into the playoffs. So when push came to shove and adversity hit in the series, the lightning had a bad six days compared to a great eighty two games in the regular season. And then they were swept now your assessment is far more kind. I think than that of the fan base. And I'm basing that on a tweet from the Tampa Bay Lightning Twitter feed, which said this we don't have any words. We know you don't want to hear them. We understand your anger, your frustration your sadness, everything you're feeling we get it. This isn't the ending we imagined. And certainly not the one we wanted. Thank you for being there. The entire way. Have you? Ever seen a team this apologetic? No. But they have a lot to apologize for the only other team in the history of the four major sports that had this kind of success in the regular season. And then didn't win a playoff game was the two thousand eleven Green Bay Packers. They went fifteen one of the regular season and lost the New York Giants in the first round of the NFL playoffs. But in that case we're talking about one game. This is a team that had four chances to win a came. And they couldn't do it. And now Columbus is the toast of the NHL. Will there be a blue jackets bandwagon? There might be you know, their team that plays an entertaining brand of hockey their head coach John Tortorella is entertainment ended of himself. Sometimes a blustery yelling guy. So there is something scrappy about this team. And there's also something scrappy about this franchise. They've been around for a very long time. And this is the first time that they'd even won three games in a playoff series can keep this going. I think so there's no reason that this team can't beat anybody.

I apologize for telling you that three one two. I mean about throats three one ninety one seventy two hundred you have a question. About your pet or your pet's behavior. I'll tell you. I'll be truthful with you Susana Mendoza the candidate for mayor for city of Chicago was supposed to be on the show last week and apologized to me and said, and I understand this. I have done this more than once where I'm somewhere where I need to turn down or turn off my phone. And she was at a speaking engagement the night before she turned down her phone and then the next morning when we call a she's not there because her phone was turned down or off. I don't know. She didn't hear it. Or if it was turned off did not hear it. So I understood and she apologized said, you know, can I be on your show next week? I said is she here. No, she's not. So so I said, okay. No problem is sort of move some things around and she is supposed to be here now. And this is one thing I would've asked her about. And that is we're going to have next week on the show. Gosh, we're talking about a cap show coming to Chicago. So I'm about to leave. I'm going to the Westminster dog show, and I'm going to speak. It's become like the Academy Awards. I'll tell you. There's all these events and activities associated with Westminster. And I'll be speaking at a dinner tonight associated with the dog show. And then Monday night, I'm going to the dog show, then I'm coming back here. And I'm going to the western veterinary conference after that where I'm honored to be speaking as well now, I was telling you about that. Oh, I know a cat show. There's the big Lincoln state cat show coming up. We'll talk about that next week on the show and also what a Chicago suburb. Did we'll be talking to a village? The and this ties back into. Donovan dozo. So the village of Vernon hills just said, and there are now well over two hundred communities in the United States and Canada who have said, no dogs or cats. Can be sold the pet stores, and the reason for that is whether sourced from as no responsible breeder ever ever sells to a pet store. So if they're coming from reckless people they include puppymills greatly. So all these communities beginning a couple of years ago at the puppy mill project, which really began out of this city and organically, so not funded by one of the big animal rights groups or anything like that just began with Carey Myers and others saying, you know, what we can't take this anymore. We see the results of all this. So the began the puppy mill project and city after city after city began to ban dogs cats in the case of some cities, also rabbits, including Chicago's ordinance social cargo band, and it was Susanna Mendoza when she was city clerk that was behind all that. And she said got some texture that are. I'm not saying kind things about Susanna Mendoza. They were. I don't know. But but she did do that. And she said here's what she did. We are going to orchestrate this thing. So it can pass through city hall, and at some point, I'm bored. I was brought in and not many people were and and the idea was we're going to we're going to move very in a very smart way. And that's what she did politically. But now, of course, it was the right thing to do. And I don't know Chicago became like the one hundred fiftieth city, I'm not sure what number it was. That said also no dogs or cats can be sold the pet stores. Thanks in part to John frisky. Cook County Commissioner same thing happened where the county of cook. And since then the entire state of California, the entire state of Maryland, other states, our entire states are jumping on board with this notion. I think that will be more states in two thousand nineteen and that may include Illinois, even so all of that is good. News. Here's the interesting thing when I testified in Vernon hills in support of all this. I don't know in November of this past year. One of those. That was testifying is Chicago pet store owner who continues to sell dogs and cats. I'm not quite sure how he can skirt the ordinance he says there from rescues still selling for. I don't know whatever he sells them for two thousand dollars more than I don't know. I don't know what he sells them for. And calls himself a not for profit. I guess or says he's rescuing dogs from not for profits. I'm not sure. But what he is doing is. He's skirting the law, and we want to close the loophole in that lawn was going to ask Susanna does about that. So she helped create it. So let's let's close that loophole in two weeks, Paul Vallas and other mayoral candidate will be here. And then I'm out of mayoral candidates because then by then there's an election three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred you could talk politics after seven o'clock.

Abraham LINCOLN stated I've known Andy Johnson for many years. It has been a severe lesson for Andy. But I do not think he'll do it again. Lincoln was right and Johnson never appeared drunk publicly after that. But people still question Johnson's fitness for office in the weeks after the incident some even called for his resignation and it all came into much sharper. Focus when Lincoln was assassinated just a few weeks later and Johnson was elevated to the presidency in this episode. We'll investigate the turmoil. Johnson single term and has. Battles with the Republicans in congress party that will transform itself into America's Grand Old Party and ascendancy to last over seventy years a period that will see the rise of the populous movement, and the progressives and will explore the Republican rift that led to a major third party run by feud or Roosevelt in the nineteen twelve election. For the third time in little over two decades. President had died in office like William Henry Harrison in eighteen forty one ABRAHAM LINCOLN had died just weeks into his second term it left. His vice president almost a full four years to lead the country in a period of profound partisanship, Andrew Johnson was a rare moderate who exasperated both Republicans and Democrats like Lincoln he'd been born into poverty and was a self made man, but he was a proud southerner champion of states rights who had spent much of his career fighting against abolition of sentiment yet..
