Fresh update on "lyndon" discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka
"First with me, Dr Sebastian Walker on 8 60 am the answer. We are in regular touch with these social media platforms, And those engagements typically happen through members of our senior staff, but also members of our Covid 19 team given, as Dr Murthy conveyed, this is a big issue of misinformation specifically on the pandemic in terms Of actions. Alex that we have taken our we're working to take. I should say from the federal government. We've increased disinformation research and tracking within the Surgeon General's office. We're flogging problematic post for Facebook that spread this information. That is Jane Psaki last week, admitting that the White House is coordinating with the social media information oligarchs, the sensor Americans. I'm sure he has something to say about that. He is the chairman of the landmark Legal Foundation former chief of staff to the attorney general of the United States. But more importantly, he is the host of the Mark Levin show and the author of the brand New book, American Marxism. A man who I have been honored to be on his show after he heard about what happened. Between me and a billion Jim Acosta in the White House and to bump into him in Virginia at a bookstore when he was at another signing. What an amazing party that was a party for Patriots mark with your background in government advising members of the Reagan Cabinet as well. What is your reaction to President Trump's declaration of his class action suit against Big Tech? Well, uh, gentler sake would make an excellent opponent. She basically coughed up the goods right there, and then they tried to walk it back. But I want your audience to understand something. This is the nature of government Under Democrats under so called progressives, Progressives are basically the bastard progeny and marks. Early progressives like marks. They actually like Stalin. They embraced a lot of the ideology. But that said When you look at what Woodrow Wilson did. He was the first to develop an entire propaganda campaign with a guy by the name of Bernie's who wrote a book out enough called Propaganda. And one of his greatest fans. Bernays was Adolf Hitler. He read his book to, uh, I'm not comparing Obviously, Woodrow Wilson made off Hitler. But I will say that Woodrow Wilson was and out of the closet Racists and segregationists. Who resegregated the United States military and the civil service. He was a Democrat progressive, by the way. Franklin Roosevelt was another one who was into this, um, he would go have he had a guy over at the Internal Revenue Service collecting information on his newspaper opponents. His political opponents. This is all in on freedom of the press. John Kennedy shared files IRS files With and Bradley of then Newsweek, then later, the Washington Post on his opponents. Lyndon Johnson had tapping devices even on Hubert Humphrey wanted to know what he was saying when he was running for president as his vice president. He had tapped devices at the Democratic National Convention in Atlantic City, listening in on Martin Luther King and others. He disagreed with Course. Robert Kennedy approved the tapping of Martin Luther King by J. Edgar Hoover. So the Democrats are very good at this and they do it a lot. None of them ever pay a price they see. They see. Big Tech is just another opportunity. And not only that, let's remind everybody and in addition to my tweet about the Democrats running the KKK Woodrow Wilson Did show birth of the nation in the White House. That's how racist a Democrat president, he was. We talked to Mark Levine, author of American Marxism. We Don't rehearse any of these interviews that not even with the great one. I'm going to ask you a big question. It may be in politics, but I have to ask it. Mark. Um, you have helped us understand the left, perhaps more than anyone. But I have to ask you how much of an obstacle to us being the Shining City on a hill again is not the Democrat Party. But the establishment GOP mark Well, The interesting thing is in this book at no time. Do I say That we can rely on the Republican Party for anything. This book is written to we, the people the American people very much like liberty and tyranny. We cannot rely on the establishment Republican Party for a lot of reasons, but one particularly of no friggin idea what's swirling around them. They're just not smart enough. They have these old bulls, who had the party and You hear how they talk about? You know, optimism and everything. I'll be optimistic my war on offense and their own defense. Read Thomas Paine's American crisis as you have he got out the first sentencing. I'm optimistic. No, he's telling the American people we better step up here and we can't afford. You know, sunshine soldiers here and I'm not talking about soldiers about activists, but you get the point. Yeah, And that's my point. I want this to be the American crisis. It's not Want this to be something that people read and carry around and share with other people. So we can so we can build this movement so we can galvanize so we can rally. Then at the end, I give a lot of ideas, but people have a lot of ideas on their own. Well, we can't sit around anymore and scratch our heads and just wind to each other. No, no, that time has passed. You were seminal with the rise of the tea party movement. Then came America first and make America great again. It is time. To finally get truly serious about saving this nation..
Democrat Presidents Have a History of Promoting Propaganda
"I want to remind you of a few things. Those of you who listened over the years and have read some of these books I've written over the years. This is not the first administration. To try and take out their political enemies and criminalized Politan. Woodrow Wilson was the first they create a whole propaganda machine. And he used a man by the name of Bearnaise. You know, like the like the sauce anyway, His name was Bearnaise. He wrote a book called Propaganda. But before that, he spoke about it. He wrote about it and Propaganda wasn't a bad word back then. And so what? And so Wilson decided to use him and Some of the surrogates. Propaganda. For what he wanted to do in World War one, the League of Nations race and the rest of it because Wilson One of the founding fathers of the so called Progressive movement was a racist in the sensation ist who Resegregated, the military And he supported the Klan. A Democrat, A so called progressive Franklin Roosevelt used propaganda use the IRS. He used the FBI to intimidate, silence his opponents and send some of them to prison. One of the greatest presidents we've ever had just asked the Democrat Party. Lyndon Johnson. And I'm skipping over a few.

He knows he wasn't elected that he's just there because kennedy was assassinated. He doesn't believe he has a mandate and he doesn't think he can win despite an approval rating of seventy four percent. You could argue that. This is all in his head but part of him. A big part just wants out ladybird invited. Lbj's to longtime doctors to drive out to hunt one for dinner Linden had a major heart attack at heartland almost ten years ago in nineteen fifty five.

Democrats passed a one point. Nine trillion dollar stimulus bill that will cut child poverty in half and deliver urgently-needed relief on it. Just it's sort of extraordinary that they that not one. Republican voted for a bill. That has you know a in a pandemic that killed five hundred. What twenty five thousand. Americans are more than that. I isn't it the politics over just completely eliminates me. I understand the only grace words. A partisan issue is in the congress. It sow because out in the world In our world The seventy five percent sometimes more in bowling. What this spill need this. Bill appreciated an. It's it's really a sea change in the interpretation of what government means. I think we have passed point. Were you know Government is the problem not the solution.

I mean they're they're hanging onto donald trump who helped them lose the white house the house and the senate who is actively telling people send money to me not to the republican party. I mean what do you make of. What's happened to your colleague here republican colleagues. How do they go home. And they say well yes. I voted against sending you that chuck. I voted against extending unemployment insurance. No your kids are not going to get that tax credit that's a alleviate poverty and we don't want to put food on your table and so we voted. No i i. i don't. I don't know what the you know. The message can possibly be well. As you tweeted representative he said as americans suffer and demand Relief and systemic change republicans across the country of united to suppress the boat. It's disgusting. We must pass the john. Lewis voting rights act. I keep saying. I only anything else matters unless we passed that because these bills are just. They dropped any pretense of voter fraud.

I can't even keep up with all the techniques right georgia. They thought well you know that. Sunday voting where black people how souls to the polls that lets them vote.

Do what they think. They have to do to pick their own voters to limit people's right to vote. It's
David Rice Atchison: President For A Day?
"Rice was a democratic senator from the state of missouri. He served in the senate for twelve years from eighteen. Forty three to eighteen fifty five. He had a reputation for being extremely pro. Slavery he owned. Slaves supported all of the slave state issues in the run up to the civil war and when the war finally commenced he served in the confederate army as a brigadier general commanding missouri troops. So he's not the finest of people to sit in the upper chamber of congress. Quite frankly if it wasn't for the events that i'll be discussing this episode david. Rice atchison would probably be mostly forgotten to history i. I came across his name years ago and children's book of fun facts which said that he was the president of the united states for one day. This fact has been repeated on and off for over one hundred and fifty years in fact the words president of the united states for one day are on his tombstone in missouri as sort of a testament to his greatest achievement. So is this true. Was david rice. Atchison really the president of the united states for a single day to answer the question. We need to understand exactly what happened in the election of eighteen. Forty eight week party. Candidate zachary taylor comfortably. Defeated democrat lewis. Cass and free soil candidate. Martin van buren incoming president. James polka made a pledge to seek a single term in office and he honored that pledge by not. Running taylor was a career military man who had never expressed any political opinions prior to the election. And in fact he had never voted. He had a great deal of success as a general during the mexican american war which led to his popularity in calls for him to run for president. He wasn't fact recruited by both the whigs and the democrats. The two major political parties at the time to seek office prior to the passage of the twentieth amendment to the constitution the president and all members of congress would take office at noon on march fourth. This lengthy lame duck period made more sense when everyone had to travel by horseback. And that's why was eventually changed. Nonetheless march fourth was the date everyone took office in eighteen forty nine march fourth landed on a sunday. Zachary taylor being a devout man. Didn't want to have his inauguration ceremony. Take place on the sabbath so he postponed one day until monday. March fifth is vice. President millard fillmore also delayed his oath of office until march fifth according to the law at the time which was the presidential succession act of seventeen ninety to the next person in line to the presidency after the vice president was the president pro. Temporary of the united states senate. The vice president is technically the president of the senate. The president pro temporary is the person who presides over the senate when the vice president is not present. The president temporary was david rice. Atchison at the time the position was actually a competitive election today. The president pro temporary is just the senior ranking member of the majority party in the senate. So the argument is that because neither zachary taylor nor millard fillmore didn't take the oath of office on march fourth and waited until march fifth that they weren't president from noon on march fourth until noon on march fifth. That means that the next in line would have been the president pro. Temporary of the senate david rice. So is this true and does this argument. Hold water. The answer is pretty clear in the answer is no and there are a whole bunch of reasons. Why this is the case. I while the constitution does stipulate that the president and the vice president must take the oath of office it only says quote before he enters upon the execution of his office unquote. This is legal hair-splitting but it means before president can do anything presidential e- sign a law. Appoint officials signed a treaty etc. They must i take the oath of office however they can still be the president before taking the oath to illustrate the point. President kennedy was shot at twelve thirty pm on november. Twenty second nineteen sixty three. He was declared dead at one thirty three. Pm and lyndon johnson took the oath of office on air force one at two thirty eight pm. The moment president kennedy was dead. Or at least claire dead. Lyndon johnson became the president in the same way that someone becomes a king the moment the old king dead even if they haven't been coronated. The oath of office is just a way to legally unlock the powers of the presidency after becoming president. As i said this is legal hair-splitting and for all practical purposes it doesn't really matter but for the twenty four hour period before the oath of office zachary. Taylor was the president. If there was an emergency you could have quickly taken the oath of office in private and without a public ceremony and dealt with the crisis as president. The second argument as to why atkinson was never president is that he never took the oath of office. Either if taylor is in president. Because he didn't take the oath of office than atkinson also can't be president by the same logic. The third argument is that he officially wasn't the president pro. Tempore e of the senate. He was the president pro temporary during the previous session of congress. His term expired on march fourth at noon. Just like the presidential term. Did he needed to be reelected again. On march fifth which he was moreover. This wasn't the first time that this had happened in eighteen. Twenty one james monroe delay taking the oath by a day for the exact same reason yet known assumes that someone else was president for a day at johnson himself never claimed to be president at the time. No one seriously thought he was the president. And there's nothing in the congressional record to indicate that he was there are no constitutional scholars presidential historians or even atkinson's owned biographer. Who thinks that he was actually president at best. If you applied a very strict rule to the taking of the oath to become president then you could maybe say that there was a one day interregnum where there was no president but it doesn't follow that atkinson was president.

Biden signs executive orders addressing the economy
"Biden has turned to executive orders in his first days of office says he looks to address the economic crisis brought on by the pandemic. He's also pursuing a massive coronavirus aid bill Can Walsh White House and political analyst for U. S. News and World Report joined w. T. O. P S John Aaron to break down Biden's first few days in office and some of the past presidents he resembles well particular FDR going back a long way to 1933 when he first became president. He had a huge depression to deal with the worst economic calamity we've ever had, and his philosophy was similar to what Biden seems to be doing action action action. The country wanted the president to do something to act boldly. And you seeing that with President Biden again today with executive orders. They're going to continue indefinitely pushing this $1.9 trillion stimulus bill moving to try many different things to get the economy corrected, but mostly to get the coronavirus under control and to get the vaccines out. That's his first priority right now. And probably should be given how difficult that issue is for people to deal with very quickly on Lyndon Johnson. Of course, he took over after President Kennedy was assassinated. He also wanted to show action himself, particularly in areas of diversity and racial justice with writing is also doing so. I would say those two presidents come to mind and you see a lot of echoes in what Biden is doing when you compare them to Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson. The president, of course pitches himself is a compromise or experienced in the Senate. But we're hearing that some Republicans say there's no way they're gonna go for some of the elements and at one point trillion $1.9 trillion.8 bills. So where does this go? I think the thing we have to remember here, of course, is that this is vital opening bid in his attempt to get a lot of this legislation through. He's been around a long time. 36 years in the Senate years as vice president, he is known as a guy who knows how the Congress works. And so I think we have to realize that this is his the start of the neck. Negotiations started the deal making there are not good signs from the Republicans that they'll go along with him. There's a lot of pushback of the same time he's getting the sense from the left on his in his party to push further in government activism, and so on, So it is a difficult line. He's walking here, but I think That there's the potential particularly initially here that he will come to some kind of a compromise. It'll be difficult, but what he's got out there now is sort of the whistle ist. I think when he gets to the real bargaining, I think he's gonna have to borrow back off from a lot of that. But I think it's possible

Trump and Biden make final pitch to voters at last debate
"All right. We're going to turn now to our team of political strategist to get their take on what happened last night. We heard from Democratic political strategist Karen Finney and Republican strategist Scott Jennings yesterday ahead of the debate, and they are here again this morning. Good morning to you both. Good morning. Scott. I want to start with you. You said yesterday you thought the mute feature of the ability to mute the candidates. Different intervals could actually work in Trump's favor. You called it a medicine that would help him because it would let him make his economic argument. Did it work? Did that happen? Yeah, It's always fun being right and Donald Trump last night, you know whether it was the mute button or whether it was his own personal self control. Finally. He actually let Joe Biden talk, and I think it also let Donald Trump think about what he wanted to say next, which then caused them to actually have a choice. Sort of a debate over policy, which is the way trumps always needed this election to be framed up. Now it's late. A lot of folks have already voted or made up their minds. But finally, for one night, we actually had a debate over policy, and Donald Trump sounded pretty good. So can what do you make of that Because some Republicans are supporters of President Trump had reportedly said, You know, we just need here. Joe Biden speak that He'll essentially forgive him along enough piece of rope that he'll hang himself. We'll make some kind of Gaff. What did you make of having that the space that move between them and the ability to let them both talk didn't work, divided? Well, I think it actually worked to both of their favor. I'm willing to say that and congratulations, God, I thought of you, actually, not without being so disciplined. I thought it's Scott actually talk to him because you know, and it does matter. I mean, look, my other critique. Obviously, most importantly of President Trump's performance was that a lot of what he said was still untrue. But you know, one of the things as communicator we know is that the tone of the style of what you say matters and and I certainly think the space between them aloud for more of a conversation. I certainly thought that Vice President Biden also had an excellent night. In that, you know, he was ableto be clearly talking about substance as well. I think a number of the hits from President Trump really didn't seem tto land. Quite so well. And there were a couple of pretty cringe worthy moments like the conversation about Children who had been separated from their parents that despite his demeanor, I don't think worked well for Trump and I think Again. Gave Biden the space to actually have a comment about that. Instead of just, you know, the kind of behavior we saw in the first debate. So I want Oh, I wantto ask about one particular moment. The moderator Kristen Welker of NBC, asked President Trump what he would say to Americans. Who have not liked how how he has talked about race or seem to exacerbate racial divides in this country, and this is how he responded. Let's by the state. Nobody has done more for the black community and Donald Trump. And if you look with the exception of Abraham Lincoln, possible exception, but the exception of Abraham Lincoln. Nobody has done what I've done. I mean, Republicans believe that Scott it discounts the actions of several previous presidents. I mean, Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act in 1964, ending segregation. Yeah. I mean, I could do without the the bravado and the hyperbole about Abraham Lincoln. However, if you was that entire exchange, Donald Trump actually does have a story to tell When you talk about criminal justice reform and his support of the historically black colleges and universities, the economic numbers prick over it. He has a story to tell. And then he pivoted and said, What did you do while you were in office for the last eight years under Obama for for your 47 year career and actually take it take out the hyperbole about leaking, which, by the way, has always been patently ridiculous. The story. He could tell about what he did not too bad. So, aside from that I was happy with the case he brought on that.
Politicians, Constance Baker Motley
"Hello from Wonder Media Network I'm Jenny Kaplan and this is encyclopedia Britannica. Today's politicians but most of her life fighting for civil rights, she put her life at risk to change the course of American history, but she's often left out of history books. Let's talk about Constance Baker Motley. Constance Baker Motley was born on September fourteenth nineteen, forty one in new haven connecticut she was one of twelve children born to working class immigrant parents from the West indies. Constance. Was a bright child who grew up attending integrated schools and quickly fell in love with reading. She didn't learn much about black history in school. But what she did learn about civil rights leaders inspired her she decided she wanted to become a lawyer, but constance couldn't afford higher education. She took a job as a maid for a while before moving on to work for the National Youth Administration an organization focused on providing work an educational opportunities for young adults. Constance was giving a speech at a local community center one evening when her oratory skills impressed a wealthy white philanthropist. He, offered to pay for constants college tuition. So in nineteen, forty, one constance began attending college at Fisk University in Nashville. She later wrote that the train ride down to Tennessee was the first time she experienced overt racism and Jim Crow laws after being forced to ride in a broken down segregated train car, it was a perspective changing moment for constance two years into her attendance at Fisk Constance transferred to New York University and finished her bachelor's degree in economics. Then in nineteen, forty, four constance became the first black woman to be accepted to Columbia law school. After graduating from Columbia in nineteen, forty, six constants worked for the NWC peas legal staff under Thurgood. Marshall who later became a court justice over the course of her work at the N. double ACP constance assisted with almost sixty cases that ended up reaching the Supreme Court. She also personally argued ten supreme court cases and one nine. Constance is work integrated multiple southern state universities putting her toe-to-toe with racist governors determined to bar black students from schools. She also helped protect the right to peaceful protests and opened up parks for. Black. Americans. She did all that despite the sexism and racism personally experienced during her legal career. Some judges actually turned their backs on her and refused to hear her speak. But Constance didn't let others biopsies bar her from success. Her work made her a key player in the civil rights movement and she even occasionally represented Dr. Martin? Luther. King Junior. Constance was constantly in danger when she was working in the south racists threatened her life and the lives of other prominent figures in the black community constance was barred from staying in hotels. So she had to stay with local activists, but even that didn't make her feel completely safe her friend Mississippi civil rights leader Medgar. Evers. was murdered his own driveway.

I think yesterday we had like one case in New South Wales in. Sydney and You know Melbourne's a different story in complete lockdown I was speaking to a friend that lost not. So it's very different via bit Personally it's been it's been quite nice being off the road and hanging out with family being in the studio and making music of made more music than I ever have in my whole Korea basically because I'm just sat in this room, you know so. I'm just I guess making the best of a bad situation and just in doing everything I can. So when we get back out there one day we can keep going yeah. One hundred percent men I mean, are you do you enjoy long studio periods like this not necessarily because of these circumstances but like are you a studio guy? I am but actually never had this amount of time in his life in one studio. It's always been a laptop on the road. So it's it's a new focus that I have It feels really good and I'd like board new cables and stuff and new since and and kind of noting out of it more I'm loving people doing their live streams like especially like the. Disclosure, ones and those are crazy. It's just so amazing I. so even people like coming up and and and learning how to produce. It's so valuable by so that give back mentality I think is is Sonia. That's that's been really cool. Yeah. Disclosure one is crazy and I also like a lot of people are doing you know sort of demos submission listening feedback kinda streams. Where's Oh? Yeah. Yeah. Where people just send in things that working on our songs and they listen to it, you know live and give feedback and So the people. So it's like upset one in I'm not sure if they're gonNA listen to mind and go from there. I mean I think everyone has a different submission process, but I know like Actually, the way I found out about the disclosure stream was I was watching I don't know if you know Kenny beats he does like rap production stuff yet. Yeah. He does like a beat battle kind of thing where he'll put he'll give everyone a sample and then you have a few hours to make a beat and then he kinda ranks those and he'll have guest judges. So disclosure came on to judge that and that's yeah, people do. Stuff there's so many different things happening that. Never would have stayed out. So you look at it that way just like you gotTa, you gotTa make lemonade you know A friend of mine Lyndon J whose in a band called Faw I'm FA double I. Came, out with a song colds hush. Forget the song name but the point is He gave the instrumental out to everyone and everyone kind of had their own vibe on and like they were the singers instrumentalists and you got like two hundred submissions of people doing their own thing on this one bait Moore is really cool. I found. So it's yeah, it's a nice. It's it's a really crazy time and really sad because obviously it's tragic and people. In their lives and their jobs and all that kind of stuff. But I feel very fortunate to be in a position where it's like I can take this time to you know figure out what my next step is.
What I Do To Guarantee My Funnel's Success
"Already. So I wanted to do this episode because. I was bored this weekend not really board. On. Friday, we've actually office, and then one of the guys who team Nick Sanders Hey. Fun Projects you want to do on the side. It'd be kind of fun as like what is the fun project that we have on the side that you know? We can do real quick and he's like I. Love to his Busselton out I'm like, okay. We started thinking back and remembered that eight years ago I had to say. First. Sight called T smackdown. And because picking two competing concepts philosophies or whatever, and make a t shirt for each one. Let people vote with their wallets tries to come to sign like, Oh, I want this wins today by the teacher to make sure that wins right and so I'm right designed the site we had designed eight years ago because. It was. So. Funny Because we were. It was back when. Obama was running against Romney and so. The initial fouls we found had Obama versus Romney thing and so it's kind of fun and it was found that. We found that those PSG fouls let's do this make this. So he took it and he got all working side click funnels and spend the whole week in doing that and obviously the elections are coming up right now let's say let's do some by trump shirts. This we got designers going shirts and all sorts of stuff anyway suspend this really project that would together literally like no time it's crazy like it's been sitting on my hard drive four years now like. His files look so cool. If you want to see it in action, I'm not sure when this podcast little drop. My guess is hopefully, the site will be live by them but his tee-shirt smackdown dot com so you can go see there anyway. So constantly pick two different shirts to compete right so like when the movie twilight came, we could have done like Edwards Edward versus. Joseph or during the bachelor season could be this person because that person or whatever. Right and so you can be things you put out there and the communities of the things Ogle vote on him. And so. This one right like. Less than a month before the election everyone's really angry about both sides we should capitalize on this right as capitalist do and so. Together, and so jake, our team went and got a whole bunch of really cool. T shirt designs the he's he made. One. Some for trump some for Biden and we through on site and way they've been killing themselves almost ready to go. So we're can go live. Anything getting. Pick. Your favorite go to t shirt SMACKDOWN DOT COM by what you want to prove to vote with your wallet. But. Anyway I'm telling you this because. A lot of times for something right and you're spend time and energy June this. I have no idea. It's going to take me all this time and I'm not going to work or not, and all this fear. The reason why? I'm able to do crazy things like this study fears because before I said yes. Before we started the process, the first question that we asked was if we do this thing where we can get the traffic for it that was the question and if I don't know the answer that question the answer. The answer is always no, we're not doing the right. To know that I and so that was the first question where we traffic and I was like, okay, well. Traffic. For this means we need conservative Republican. People we need Liberal Democrat people right and where we find people may okay their email lists week commit here here and here, and then there's email list here here and here, and then the here's the facebook page we can target. Here's here's the liberal. Here's the conservative. Here's the answer really quickly in as quickly could found is many different variations. As. We could of both sides know where you traffic. So very quickly boom here's the traffic I think conservatively probably said, I don't tend to twenty thousand clicks in three or four day period time, which is how long lily smacked probably in the blasting, and so let's do it right and so now Dick and Jake and James who've been working on the site on the free hours after hours, the weekends and stuff. While they're doing that I just went and text all these people's Hey can rent agilis. Yes. Clarin Angeles. Yes. How much does it cost wanted this date I want this much and within. Within twelve minutes maybe. I had enough traffic lined up to get about some between probably ten to fifteen thousand clicks half on the conservative side and half on the liberal side and so now when the lights sites live and click a button that fast sales and start coming in. So. What do you guys? Number One 'cause I want to show off? Brag. Bummer. Fund idea that we had eight years ago we're finally actually executing on. But number two is for you guys start thinking about this gay that's one of the biggest things people have this much time and energy and effort on their idea and their thought, and they're going to be theirselves messaging to build their funnel, and then right we're traffic. and. That should have been the first question not the last I remember. His pre click funnels. No with a it was right when I first came out actually so. Five years would probably I was in London and I spoke this really cool. Then afterwards, they my wife and kids were still. gallivanting around Lyndon Y was. Finishing my speaking I sat in the hallway talked for two or three hours to all the people that was really fun. Definitely as introvert, but it was it was still good talk nationalist questions number one person asked me this question that I'd never answered before. No nobody ever asked me before but he asked the question he said man, you've been doing this so long how do you know that? Something's going to be successful before you do it now?
What Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis means for the country
"Were always joined on Saturday morning by John Gizzi. He is the White House correspondent and chief political columnist of newsmax dot com and Newsmax TV, John. Good morning. Good morning, Rick. And what a night it wass. Well, obviously, we're following the latest developments on President Trump and his diagnosis with covert 19. What is the latest you're hearing on the president. The president is resting comfortably at the Walter Reed Hospital where yesterday he left the White House. And arrived at the hospital. I might and he left the White House in his usual business suit looking as he always does. Uh, this is not someone who has been felled by the virus. But simply has symptoms of the Corona virus, and he will rest there until doctors say he can come out. Which effectively scotches the debate. Scheduled for October. 15th. But it doesn't mean he's going to be in the hospital through the rest of the campaign, and we may see a newer and better Donald Trump emerged from Walter Reed. For now, all signs are that he's resting and that this is not anything that Americans should be nervous about. John. We know the Corona virus hits each individual differently, assuming the best for the president, where he quarantines for the 14 days and gets through this What is the impact on the campaign for the impact on the campaign is that right now there's an absentee candidate that the president cannot have is make America great again Rallies. He cannot debate He cannot issue pronouncements, although one as the impression after covering Donald Trump for the past four years that no hospital and no confinement Ooh! Ah hospital bed is going to keep him away from his tweeting. Uh, hey, certainly can campaign that way. And another thing. We have a long history in America of candidates who are hospitalized or injured who actually do well as their supporters carry on for them. When he made his first center base in 1948 Congressman Lyndon B. Johnson was laid up for a period with very brutal, Cole. His wife, Lady Bird and others served is very effective Speakers and he went on to win hard fought race. I know of a case of another candidate, Arch war who was elected governor of West Virginia after surviving a helicopter crash. So just because it candidate is hospitalized or unhealthy doesn't mean it's a foregone conclusion. He'll lose well, John. Obviously, we know the polarization across the country and the polarization in the media. And there will be a lot of talk about the 25th amendment, and I just wanted to get sort of a factual look. At the 25th amendment. So when people hear the pundits talking about it, they understand it. Alright, 25th amendment was passed. In the late 19 sixties. It is known as the Presidential Succession Amendment. Its functions are twofold. One Puts into law what had been an informal agreement between presidents and their vice presidents. For a long time before them. And that means when the president is incapacitated, say is when he goes under the knife. For surgery, He turns over the powers. Of his office to his number two who effectively becomes acting President Richard Nixon served his acting president after a heart attack. President Dwight Eisenhower, and after a mild stroke, the president suffered Similarly, when Lyndon Johnson had surgery, Hubert Humphrey was the acting president and Dido for George H. W. Bush. Under Ronald Reagan when he had cancer surgery in his second term. The other part of the amendment is that if the vice president succeeds to the presidency, he or she can then designate Vice president that the Senate must give its advice and consent to I might add that when a president is declared unable to continue in his office for health reasons, the 25th amendment can be invoked. By the vice president and his succession to the top job can be insured. Post debate. Polls are now being released Thursday morning, NBC News National Polling had Biden up 7.9 points over President Trump Real clear politics showing Biden with a 6.6 lead over Trump Fivethirtyeight national polling tracker gave Biden the 7.6 advantage. President didn't seem to gain any ground whatsoever in the debates. Possibly lost some ground. What's your analysis is, we move forward. First of all, I do believe that the polls accurately reflect The post debate. Momentum is with Joe Biden, and it has very little to do with the debate itself. But with the media's interpretation of how candidates Trump and Biden acquitted themselves on national television, and of course, the opinion off the punditocracy is almost unanimous. The president was ruled. He interrupted. He had no consistent thought. And Joe Biden was a gentleman. That is their opinion. Which is being repeated by a lot of people. There's two factors that leaves this reporter to say that these numbers might have flaws in them. The first is the hidden vote. There's a lot of people, certainly, as was the case in 2016, who just won't admit they're voting for Donald Trump. Obviously they do so when they're in the voting booth. The other is that Joe Biden right now, by being cool, is holding on and appearing a front runner. Did. Donald Trump loses the debate? It all depends on who you ask. Chuck Booth, commentator and conservative activists from Nevada said the president decided to use this format to speak directly. To his base of supporters and try and rally them to the polls. He compared the president's performance and his refusal to abide by Time outs to the scene in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid when Butch is facing a much larger man and challenges him to a knife fight. And then says, but we have to go through the rules. The other man says there's no rules in a knife fight at which point which kicks him. And effectively weakens and subdues him. That's what the president's goal Wass with Joe Biden and to his base, he succeeded. So let's turn to the impact on the Senate and the Congress a lot of business to attend to, including the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the Supreme Court. We take pause for well wishes from Democrats. But as we can see in the Chuck Schumer tweet, it is a one sentence pause. And then we're back into politics. Here's what he said Friday night. We now have two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who have tested positive for covert and there may be more. I wish my colleagues well, so that's the nicety. And here's the politics. It is irresponsible and dangerous to move forward with the hearing, and there was absolutely no good reason to do so. Well, I would just say that the distinguished minority leader of the Senate, Senator Schumer should look a little bit more. At the rules of the Senate as wrong is there is a quorum of senators in the committee. They could move along, particularly if chairman gavels in now what he's referring to are Senator Mike Lee of Utah and Thom Tillis of North Carolina. Both Judiciary Committee members and both presently incapacitated by the Corona virus. Both could easily recover in a short time. Remember the Judiciary Committee hearings on drugs, Parrots nomination don't begin until the 14th of Oct over. So any judgments about Senator Tillis or Senator Lee? Not being in the job in two weeks is a bit premature. That's the Supreme Court debate. Let's talk about the stimulus deal. New York Times Reporting. Speaker Pelosi said that the president's positive Corona virus test could change the dynamic and produce a Nagre mint on additional pandemic relief. But a compromise remains elusive. The gist of it from Speaker Pelosi is that now the Republicans will take Corona virus more seriously. Well, where do we
'Better America': Biden's Campaign Launches New National Ad
"In one thousand, nine, sixty, four Lyndon Johnson ran a now iconic campaign ad against Barry Goldwater where a little girl counts daisy pedals until her counting becomes the countdown to nuclear explosion idea being present goldwater has become elected and started a nuclear war because he's a madman. said. It. there. Is, are, the stakes. You'll make a world in which all of God's children can live. Aren't to go into the dark room, we must either love each other. Or we must die. Vote for President Johnson on November third, the stakes are too high for you to stay home. The stakes are that you're adorable daughter gets nuked. Now. Even though we're not living through a nuclear winter, we are living through a version of disaster. I mean a a national disaster resulting in thousands and thousands of deaths day after day after day and a new Joe Biden goes against the grain in many ways the opposite of the grand life and death scale the daisy at. The new the biden relates what a bummer. This current disastrous doesn't focus deaths, evictions, closed schools. It says, this virus is ruining the little things like seeing your grandkids. have been gifted with two beautiful grandchildren. We try to see them as often as possible and it's been six months. And it's way too long. And while I don't blame Donald Trump for the virus, I blame him for his lack of action and because of that, we're sitting here zooming or facetime ing with our grandchildren instead of hugging and kissing them. And that's hard. Joe Biden knows every moment is precious I trust you Biden to get this virus under control? I'm Joe Biden and I approve this message. Seems like a really real smart relatable ad for a portion of the population that Joe Biden is trying to focus on. This is for all the people who were sold on idea that there was some normal around the Ben. During the trump years because there is no normal during trump that was false join me. Now for more on the different approaches, the two campaigns are taking is Adrian Shropshire. She's a veteran democratic strategist and executive director of black pack had a lot of experience in politics community organizing and ads as well and I just I was so struck by this ad agent because it's so understood in. So many ways given how terrible things are and given the kind of micro targeted median voter. He's trying to reach you know elderly couple or senior citizen couple in Florida. Yeah I mean the reality is that. Voters understand where we are. They understand the crisis that we're in. They do not. WanNa see campaign after campaign ad reminding them of our national. Right. I've said he focused move after folks. And what? The message that voters say that they want to hear is one of national unity. They WanNa hear message about a path forward how this mess is going to get fixed and I think the brilliant thing about that ad is that. while. It appears to be targeted at one segment of the electorate. The reality is that that is all of us, right? That is my entire family every Sunday night sitting zoom call, right so it is it is. There is a moment where the multipronged crisis that are facing the country are literally touching every single one of us and what's brilliant about the ad is that. You know it's it leads toward that unifying message right? It is it in every message quite frankly every ad I would hope to see that comes out of the campaign on is a way to unify to tell a message to tell a story that connects people about the moment that we're in. It's really if you think about it in this in this way having a national unity being a campaign strategy all by itself.
Conscience of the Country: A Tribute to John Lewis
"Congressman John Robert Louis was born in Troy Alabama on February twenty first nineteen, forty, two sharecroppers, Willie Mae, and Eddie Lewis. He is known for telling the story of preaching chickens at the boy from troy as he was nicknamed went on to become revered world leader and fearless advocate for voting rights organizing sit ins in. Nashville in nineteen sixty and becoming one of the original freedom writers Mr Lewis joined the Movement for civil rights and never looked back. As the chairman of snake he served as the youngest speaker at the march on Washington in nineteen, sixty three. In nineteen, sixty, five alongside reverend hosea, Williams Congressman Lewis led a march for voting rights across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma Alabama where he endured violent attacks by state troopers and vigilantes. Mr. Lewis fell to the ground with a fractured skull and five months later, president Lyndon B, Johnson signed the voting rights act of nineteen, sixty five until now. On the other side of that bridge Mr Lewis marched on into a life in career of activism and public service. He lost his first attempt at running for Congress in nineteen seventy seven was appointed the same year by President Jimmy Carter to the Director of action a Federal Agency for volunteerism. He then won a seat on the Atlantic City Council in nineteen eighty one and five years later ran for Congress in one. So much of the conversation about congressman, John. Lewis has been about his activism, but he stood on so many legislative accomplishments including sponsoring or co sponsoring more than eleven hundred bills. One of the most notable bills gave us the National Museum of African American History and culture in two thousand three. He served as a subcommittee chair for oversight for the prestigious ways and means. Committee, and after the retirement of Congressman John Conyers. became the dean of the Congressional. Black Caucus in twenty nineteen, he presided over the House floor as Congress passed hr four. Since his passing the bill was renamed the John Lewis Voting Rights Act which was adopted by unanimous consent. Before being admitted to the hospital, MR? Lewis stood in the heart of Black Lives Matter Plaza. He took his last breath on July seventeenth twenty twenty. But his legacy lives on in all of us. We begin this John Lewis. Tribu. where he also began with civil rights joining me for this very important conversation are Vanita Gupta President and CEO of the Leadership Conference on civil and Human Rights Derek Johnson, president and CEO of the of Lacey Pe-. Reverend, Michael Pfleger the senior pastor of the faith community of Saint. SAVINA. Reverend Dr William J Barbour, the second president of repairs of the breach and Co Chair of the poor people's campaign. An latasha Brown, Co founder and chief doer of black voters matter. A thank you all so much for making time to talk with me today about on. John Lewis. So I want to start with I'm. VANITA. Because of your work at the Department of Justice of course. I believe the year before you got to DOJ. The the case, the decision that gutted the voting rights act shelby versus holder, and so I wanna hear from you on some of the things that you experienced working with Mr Lewis on the other side of that because we know that right after that, all of the advocacy picked up to reinstate section five to get the voting rights on provision where they needed to be in Congress. And so just talk a little bit about some of your work with Mr Lewis on those issues. Shore. Is Truly an honor to be here with my. Warrior colleagues and friends and loved ones in the movement. Especially on today Angela. I think probably all of us were in tears watching Mr Lewis Funeral you know twenty thirteen is you mentioned that United States Supreme Court gutted the heart of the voting rights act in a devastating decision the shelby county versus holder decision. That really took away the longstanding tool of one of the most effective pieces of federal legislation in our nation's history in the voting rights act. That quired states with long histories of racial discrimination in voting to pre clear with the United States Justice Department changes made at the local level for election practices that had racially discriminatory impact. And the removal of that tool within hours of that decision coming down for the United. States. Court states like, North Carolina Texas enacted, Monster? Voter. Laws doing everything from. Putting forth restrictive voting laws cutting back early voting same day registration. And it took years to litigate and to hamlet the Justice Department did working with advocates and activists in all states. Where so years for federal courts in a place like North Carolina finally say that the State legislators North Carolina had enacted there. Monster Voter Suppression Law would such surgical precision to disenfranchise African Americans and meanwhile countless elections had taken place but Mr Lewis of legacy was that in the face of this overwhelmingly bad decision for voting rights he immediately. Went to action, which is always his way was never in a would not allow despair to hold him back inside we need to do everything we can restore it in went to work with legislative partners in the Congressional Black Caucus to put forth a bill immediately to restore it on every prior reauthorization of the voting. Rights. Act angelides always been done under. The Watch of Republican president and at least one house of Congress being Republican the unfortunate thing is after this decision, the really has not been bipartisan support and but Mr Lewis Year after year would stand at the podium introduced the law in say or in it for the long haul I've been there before I almost lost my life fighting for this law. In one, thousand, nine, sixty five, and we will persevere to us and we've got to keep our eye on the prize and we're not gonNA. Let go until the day that the bill becomes law. So in this moment. On where we're seeing a lot of performance morning by Senate Republicans who obstructed day after day everything that he has stood for and fought for with his life. It is time not only for us to restore the voting rights act passed the voting rights advancement act but to do everything else that we can to ensure open voting and go beyond it as President Obama said today won't be enough to rest and return to the status quo. It is time for this country to unregarded into make our democracy work for all of us in Gulf Far Beyon- restoration of the voting rights act in this moment.
"lyndon" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Of Lyndon Johnson at two years now between sixty five the trouble and what's which everybody agreed with a catastrophe and the trouble in Newark did Johnson not respond in any fashion well you know Johnson did worked his heart out getting the civil rights law and then the voting rights law of sixty five along with the billion dollar poverty bill and many other efforts so it yes he was deeply disappointed at the watch right where's the gratitude right that yeah I mean it's a little bit of a a little bit selfish if you went into in a serious pout we know this because his aide Joe Califano who later became a cabinet member trying to find Johnson and swaps went up in flames and on the characteristically for Johnson he couldn't find Johnson Johnson one telephones you know it's called everyone all the time a red button on but Johnson was a wall because Johnson was effectively pouting and digesting the horrible news of watch and it was horrible the numbers turned out to be even higher and then the numbers initially cited that you quoted by the time you get to sixty seven Johnson is disillusioned he sad he's struggling with Vietnam all the time and he cannot understand why his big hearted efforts were working and the rights of the sixty seven contributed to Johnson's decision not to run again in sixty eight Detroit is swept by riding in fires New York times Monday July twenty fourth nineteen sixty seven Romney calls in guard seven hundred arrested at the same time in New York disorders erupt in East Harlem mobs disperse the thousand police rushed in to end me lie eight shots fired on a hundred eleven street we're looking at a catastrophe in the summer of nineteen sixty seven you say that Johnson was in retreat let's leave it there where was Sargent Shriver where was the where was the economic opportunity act while he was in battle and you know Johnson and thank him threatened him prayed over him to get Sargent Shriver take the job the courtship by Johnson was one amazing thing he was a charm offensive that it you know if you you know exponential charm offensive driver in taking the job in and of course Johnson began to blame them for the failures so Shriver was angry too what's sad about for example Detroit is the police violence was still there the jobs were not there the people were arrested and there was terrible destruction in that city today we wonder why destroy it was Detroit was so wrapped one reason was that Ryan people moved out because they didn't want to be around for another ride another reason though once all of the big three automakers were beginning to realize they were facing international competition and you know in the years that followed foreign automakers would begin to easy to choice lunch so the jobs were not there for the people of Detroit the people in the machine tool centers of Missouri or Ohio the people around Michigan and the big automakers I would say out of state liberalism and progressivism said we're going to make this all about high wages for our workers the unions want us to do that we're going to do it and again who was conned out less skilled workers often blacks and

How did America get to its current state?
"The scenes across the US in the past week or so, they have been profoundly disturbing heavenly. The protests are in response to the horrifying image of George. Floyd an African American man and Minneapolis. Police officer who killed him by kneeling on his nick for close to nine minutes to spot. He's pleased that he could not brave. Those demonstrations as we all know turned into, want him violence and destruction, not only in the twin cities, but all across American CDs. Today's are quiet and peaceful, but it's really the evenings in the night, so usually bring that fury. Those frustrations attend to boil over in the results or these fiery clashes that we've seen across the country, and of course here in New York. We've already seen dozens of people injured. Hundreds of people arrested in tonight. The expectation is that we could see more of these demonstrations. How did America get to this point? And who precisely are Antioch, the militant left wing political protest movement that part of these rights. Face because Nazis, thank. and. That is a very bad thing because harass people Lemay Organiz they kill. People hurt people. They fight people. And we're the ones who fighting back there. The second coming of Hitler for several decades America has I deeply divided nation. Just go back to the mid to late nineteen sixties when America experienced those long hot summers, protests and riots, Vietnam Rice and Martin. Luther King's assassination. The American people are deeply disturbed. They're baffled and dismayed by the wholesale looting and violence. That has occurred both in small towns and then great metropolitan centres. No society can tolerate massive violence. Anymore than a body can tolerate massive disease to me that black people are in the streets. Has Do the lives air force lead in this country? And unfortunately lead these lives by the indifference and the apathy. And a certain kind of ignorance, willful ignorance on the part of their citizens. According to British historian Max Hastings Pass guest on this show in those days quote. It seemed that rice the election and the Vietnam. War would tearing asunder the greatest country on earth. And to think is deep divisions in America have clearly grown since the sixties especially in the trump era, just think of that toxic polarization, hyper partisanship in Washington and elsewhere not to mention the crisis engulfing American cities. So. How did America get to this point? Robert DALIC is arguably America's most distinguished living presidential historian. He's author of fourteen books including on Presidents FDR JFK, LBJ, Richard, Nixon, and Ronald Reagan. The latest book is called. How did we get? He from Theodore Roosevelt? To Donald Trump it's published by harpercollins. Robert Delic joins me from Washington DC hi Bob. Hi Tom Lovely to hear from you. Great to have you on the show now they adopt is in Washington and across other use CDs, but America as I mentioned, before has experienced similar protests in violence. What do you think distinguishes this crosses? The widespread unrest in nineteen sixty I'd. Well, Tom. One of the things that distinguish did was the fact that Lyndon Johnson of course was. President then, and was presiding over the Vietnam War, which was at the center of what? Disturbed so many people in the United States and triggered so many of these. Demonstrations but Johnson had the good sense. To? Give up running for president. He was very skillful politician. Now we have a president who will not give up who would not resign and the only way we're going to get him out of office is by feeding him in the election. Night comes up and five months from now it's very disquieting situation and the demonstrations across this country. I believe on not. Simply a response to the tragic killing of that black man in Minneapolis, but it's also a protest against Donald Trump's presidency. You Know Tom. He's never reached fifty percent approval. And the going on for years he's been office. And this is unprecedented. No President in terms since we've had polling in the Mid Nineteen Thirties. Has Gone through a whole first term without ever reaching fifty percent approval.
How Berlin Remembers; Turkish Delights; Travel to Bhutan
"Berlin has become the high tech and cultural powerhouse of today's dynamic German economy but there are still plenty of Berliners who can tell you about the difficulties. They faced back in the twentieth century as a divided city and stories of life under the Nazis during World War Two. We're joined now by German tour guides older Timur and Fabien Muga. Look at some of the most impressive monuments and memorials. You can visit to remember the lessons from Berlin past gentlemen. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having to live in Berlin as a tourist. You just come and go to live there. You're surrounded by all of this history and all of these memorials when you walk down the streets. Does it become just background and you just see through it or are you constantly aware of this happened there? This happened there and so on holger is part of everyday life. Yes but it's not like you kind of oversee it because it is there it is right in your face. I've seen most of the memorials like many countless times. As a berliner as tour guide here but they still are some of them are really haunting especially when it comes to divided city to the wall or to the time of the National Socialist period and in the case of Germany. With your complicated history. The memorials are almost there to not go away to be in your face. I mean there's even something called stumble stones right Fabio yes. There are a memorial stones to victims of the Holocaust who had deported from particular houses. And if you have a friend or relative was deported from that house you can donate some money to this foundation and they will put stumbling stone into the pavement Princeton pavement. Like you need to trip on this to never forget the horrible thing that happened right there when you think about Germany. A lot of our fixated on World War Two in the whole fastest thing but of course there's many layers of the city that was the leading city of of the PRUSSIAN empire and so on Fabio. And when you think about memorials of the horns period and Prussia what is there in Germany to look at our Berlin. I think the most visible that everybody know will know. Is The victory column. That's in the center of the main park often. The victory column was built as a symbol of victory over the French. This is where history and Berlin connect. It was originally standing on the spot where it is today. The Nazis moved at there to make it stand in a more triumphant spot in the very center of the city. It was originally built near the rice stuck building and was not looking quite some one mental there today. Six major streets of lead straight towards the listen to that part of a big access isn't it? I mean Hoeger. The whole city is built on this axis which lined by memorials. The East and west access really is this fascinating thing. You look up. And you see Golden Angel Hair and you think. Wow that's wonderful. Then you close in you. See while this is all candidates made cannons French cannons French cannons. Like as a AS A TO Z. Boy To as spoils of war multiple. Yeah so it is weird thing. If you you would think that's nice to call between can look at it that it has a little jab at the French. It's a big Jab at Big Jab at the French or the Germans the French and of course I in the next century. We've got the whole Hitler situation and a lot of memorials relating to the nightmare of Berlin being the capital of Nazism. What are some of the memorials that you'll see when you go to Berlin that way what I found very haunting as the memorial to the burning of the books right near onto the Lyndon right near the State Opera House? And it's basically a memorial that you wouldn't really see because it's underground and you would just maybe pastas Query Newton. We have no idea what it is but quite often you see consumerist groups looking at nothing really and then you look there and it basically is a hole in the ground. It's a glass plate in the ground and he looked down and there is an empty library like five by five five meters containing empty shelves for twenty thousand books. Symbolizing was happening in the tenth of May Nineteen thirty three. When the Nazis took all the books and literature that they hated that it didn't understand they didn't like and were putting them in a big pile and burning him openly for people to see and that's now empty. Shelves are very haunting memorial to that.

Yes certainly just asking how when you were there and he claimed a Jewish conspiracy I'd put Hitler into power and brainwashed Nazis into their atrocities. Wow that is quite a theory. It really that is really really doesn't hold up it would be like we're going to play a game called. How do you offend Jewish people about the Holocaust the most really the guys did it? You came up with Hitler what this the worst idea not sneaky sneaky the worst idea no. We've got proof ton of proof looking this. You have no proof. Well still look at the palm. Hand My love line okay. It stops here so I'll probably get married again good to meet you. He also started using British as a code word for Jewish. Oh God that's that means.

I'm GONNA need one more take take the name Linden her mile larouche junior okay because he here at once you like we gotta give my son this name. It could be could be formally but I really doubt it. Yeah <hes> had been a family name right. You don't just throw that on a kid well. I mean like unless you're in the bathtub doing a bunch of opium mile per mile born in Rochester New Hampshire his parents Orthodox quakers as well as a really really really fervent anti communists really against communist okay while many quakers are known for their tolerance. Linden was from the other strain of quakers okay so he was as parents sent him. He's not the OATMEAL kind he's not the happy quakers knowing love and that's an interesting policy. How about we break bread studies? I kill kill break loans. His parents said him to quaker summer camps. Oh what a nightmare but not for enjoyment no nobody's there for enjoyment. He had orders to organize other campers against Bolshevik sympathizing counselors. So what kind of camp is this new A._M.. But he's there it's a regular camp but he's been sent into fine communists as you do with children. How old is he? He's he's a kid. He's like you know like Hannity's there to sniff out communists that his camp would you do again probably probably just starting some. Did your parents not send you out to find communists in in in summer camps. I mean I was there. There was probably another kid doing that. I was just on that makes me was in the water. What kind of family like a communist from a Communist family? Do you love America. Linda Linden was heavily bullied but his parents said he did not fight back. Do quaker pacifism also a pacifist wait okay. There's a lot of you can find you can root out the communists but when you find them if they push you walk way had held high yeah you're passing okay. What was that that was my new? That was in me. Voy I made of mainly springs this lead to more bullying <music> as it quote became a challenge to those who speculated on exactly how much abuse I would tolerate wow so that's not great. No one thousand nine hundred eighty. The family moved to the Boston suburb of Lyn okay in nineteen eighteen forty-one linens father was expelled from the quakers for publishing rambling conspiracy filled accusations against other local quakers as well as support for Hitler. Well this is developing. This is really coming along. Okay so yeah well we're. I'm on side quaker here. This is not classic quaker behavior know this guy's rogue Linden and his mother resigned in solidarity from quaker's right okay but they weren't like does early giving Hitler shoutouts. They were just like where would dad or you know maybe maybe they weren't Hitler who knows sure sure and they're not right in the letters but I would imagine you're getting brainwashed quite a bit with your Dad Hitler Living Dead Shit. Don't I know it in fall nineteen forty one lended went to college at Northeastern University. He lasted one year. I got in there oh you did. That's a fantine yeah. He was quote disgusted with the methodological methodological methodological incompetence of most of my courses and the General Philistinism accompanying them okay so blabbity blogs limit eastern talk you and get it. I wouldn't get at all linen then declared himself a World War Two conscientious objector but he got bored and he fell in with the the Indian Communist Party. Oh sorry I messed that up. He grow grew board in nineteen forty four. He joined the army serving as a medic in Burma India okay and while he was in Calcutta he fell in with the Indian Communist Party so he is your go ahead. You see something here well. I'm seeing a one hundred eighty degrees spent that's right so it's he's rebelling and it was dad's whole thing is anti-communism. He's GonNa he's GonNa ah kids against as their specific specific moment. He's rebelling against just in general how kind of casually bringing up Hitler a lot at dinner yeah it'd be like it's pretty good though I mean this is good Hiller good meatloaf me love but Hiller also pretty good yes so he's the wars on he's in. He's in Calcutta this cool communists around shirt so by the time he leaves India in Nineteen forty-six he was quote a a hardened trotskyist. Okay Saddam to go see daddy so trotskyism is a Marxist ideology based on the theory of permanent revolution. Okay endless believes in an economic doc system sort of beyond borders as a World System Cher rather than national one and that the working class has had hegemony over the revolutionary class right so different than some other ways. Look at it okay so it's pretty hardcore in Hardcore Shit Linden return to Lynn and in nineteen forty nine joined the local branch of a Trotskyist Organization the Socialist Workers Party so he comes home.

What is it stand for local one forty two lynn catchy itchy island say something about land aislinn? I'm also Lynn Hey bro. He said his name's land who talks dog. Who's that person me L._S._D.? So he gets married they moved to New York City where the sessions worker party headquarters were Linden read a lot Lynn Linden Okay Linden we'll do. I'M NOT GONNA call them Linda. I'm GONNA call Linden. Just thank you for cohesion. When people keep changing their names we'll just stick with birth name okay so he read a lot about cybernetics and computing and then became convinced the trust trotskyists weren't thinking big enough about transformations of the world okay so the people who are looking to transform the world people who were looking for world revolution or not thinking big enough to tiny of thinkers thinker? Yes what is what's bigger a universal workers part underwater life. That's right we have to also underwater. He wrote for socialist publications and started a management management consulting company. Okay which advised managers how to control workers in reduce labor cost okay to control workers and reduce late but why wait this guy is does he can any pick a spot in state in it so he'll do you mean on. He's he's gone from now being a Communist. No he's still doing that at night. Yes okay so ultimately. He's still doing it his he's day lighting as someone WHO's working against his cause so hear me out so he's he's. He's a trotskyist. He's trying to organize workers to to essentially have a a worldwide revolution where the workers are in charge workers run things and then but he's got to make money. Right so he starts management business that he knew what he knows really well is how workers organized so he now can use that information to make some cash on the side of telling managers how to control workers and then he he can use that money. You can put that money back into his Communist Party. So you see how it works like a Dietitian. WHO's a competitive eater? That's correct right okay so oh linen also now began defense himself as a physics expert. I've done that because he's done so much. Reading once you've read enough you're like in physics works and most things doctors everything during one forty hour writing binge issue with no food or sleep he he went on a forty hour. This guy's okay now one hundred percent this guy's insane. I'm pretty sure that spans grazing rights for forty hours he's an idea man. It's messy he he quote saw clearly for the first time the nature of the solution to the particle field paradox. Oh He's the guy <hes> yeah. This is the guy who did it. The particle feel paradox and it solution. We're both invented by Lyndon Larouche wait so he he this guy he finally solved the solution. He got the solution he found particle field paradox which is something that he came up well. He made up right. That's easy to do finally answered the age old question. Did I asked last week around this time. He also began holding psycho analytic counseling sessions. Oh here we go. One client was a former freedom writer who committed suicide. Linden claimed it was due to a savage remark made by Janice. Who's Janice is why Flynn Oh Lynn Lynn to London Linden quote he so he would during a psychoanalyzing session? This guy kills some sometimes like John s not during but later subsequently client slash patients themselves and he's like Jan Janitor is he said it quote killed my last strong feeling for the marriage in nineteen sixty three they separate Lindsey v laid off yeah. He's Linden move in with another social worker party member Carol Schnitzer. They never married and she but she still became care Larouche so I don't really understand how that works but she changed her name is taken the rule book and tossed it and now let's remember he's still going by lend Marcus yes. He's lamarcus and now he's married to cut car Carol Laroche who took his. I guess what I'd call his maiden name. So problems started to rise in the social worker party. Factional disputes in nineteen sixty six Linden Carol left the Socialist Socialist Workers Party. Okay in nineteen sixty. Seven Linden started teaching Marxism classes at the Free School of New York. He started to recruit followers. He was pulling away from the Stalinist Progressive Labor Party. Okay okay so this is. This is very like these are factions. One hundred percent the classes also attracted students from Columbia University and Linden became involved with the Columbia chapter of students for a democratic society which is a comfortable calm a countrywide campus organization okay and in Nineteen Sixty eight the S._D._S. occupied Columbia to protest Vietnam big news all across the country Lennon's involved in that he organized by the scenes in his follows also follows a major part of action right but like these socialists worker party the the student's democratic society also start splintering defection right. It's just it's just the left. This left US rings a minor bell. One one was loyal to Linden. That group became the National Caucus of Labor committees the N._C.. L. C.. I see okay so that's his now. This is his organization Okay N._C.. L. Say okay the N._C.. L. C. expanded and became a prominent National Marxist organization. Okay it published a major leftist newspaper New Solidarity Charity in Nineteen seventy-one. It formed a political party the U._S. Labor Party okay. They had an intense rivalry with the Communist Party U._S._A.. Okay N._C.. L. C. members disrupted communists. It's meetings the Communist Party. Intern claim the N. C.. L. C. was being secretly run by government agents which you would think like if there's another leftist organization that is coming in and fucking your meetings and your communist they have to be right. There's no the way that buddy who believes as closely to is is going to do something to blow this all up. That's right right to throw a little flavor. In the mix.

Move says gardening is a big deal for her because it was pretty much impossible before she had back surgery. It's a lot of bending over, and it's a lot of crouching, and none of that I could ever do before, and it's still, it's still hard for me until she was twenty four live experienced, chronic pain, and debilitating, muscle weakness. There is a lot of pain in my legs, which I can now recognize nerve pain. There was a lot of pain in my back, which I thought was just something that everybody lived with live, saw lots of doctors over the years, but they couldn't explain. What was going on? She'd pretty much given up on finding an answer until coal pushed her to try one more time. It never improved. Never got better that just didn't that didn't sound right to me. So live went to a specialist to ordered an MRI of her spine a few days later, her phone rang, slowly, I guess. We found something on your MRI. It's diets D'amoto my Elliott with tethered cord, syndrome, tumors benign, and I'm like, sorry, what tour live been born with a rare condition that causes a part of the spinal cord to split into, in her case, it also led to a tumor that trapped her spinal cord causing it to stretch as she grew in December of two thousand seventeen a neurosurgeon opened up her spinal column, and freed the court, I think of his day, three after my surgery, I could feel the difference. There is just a pain that I had always had that wasn't there anymore. She recovered live saw lots of huge medical bills, but they were all covered by her insurance plan, all except one which arrived almost a year after the operation, it wasn't exactly a Bill. It was one of those things from the insurance company that says this is what we cover, and this is the amount that you might your provider, the amount ninety three thousand nine hundred ninety one dollars and fifty eight cents have shocked. Viansa was outrage as soon as I saw that I thought it was a scam. It wasn't just the amount. The Bill would come from an Austin company called tracks medical holdings tracks provides a service that monitors the function of nerves during surgery. The goal of this neuro monitoring is to help a surgeon, avoid damaging nerve. But unlike live surgeon and hospital tracks was not part of her insurance companies network. So the Bill was her responsibility. Cole says that's just wrong. I don't see how they could continue to put people in this sort of financial peril, and haven't ultimately be on the up and up tracks did not respond to requests for comment. Lives insurance company at the time Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas agreed to cover about eight hundred dollars or roughly one percent, the charge and live is pretty sure that just before surgery. She signed a paper that authorized the out of network neuro monitoring Dr Arthur Garson junior directs the health policy institute at the Texas medical center in Houston. He says getting a patient. Consent in the hospital may be legal, but it's not reasonable. You're having your heart attack. There you are flat on your back. You got trust pain. You're sweating sick as you can be in the hinge piece of paper. And they say sign here in may the Texas legislature passed a Bill to protect patients from the sky, high charges this practice can produce and congress is considering similar legislation. Carson says these are small steps in the right direction asking the individual patient to make that decision. Even when they're not sick, I think is difficult than maybe. We ought to figure out some better way to do with the Texas legislation is expected to take effect in September, and it won't help live cannon. So she says that ninety four thousand dollar figure is never far from her mind. I still think about it every time I go out and collect the nail and like wondering is this the day that it's gonna show up and that we're going to have to deal with us. So Johnny leave does end up getting this ninety four thousand dollar Bill. Is she going to pay it? She says. No, she says she can call a plan to fight it. How come in this, this that people will get a big medical Bill for something for a service that they didn't know they were getting. It's a lot more common than it used to be an especially in neuro monitoring. This is a field that was decades ago. But in the last few years, it has expanded greatly and often it's a service that is where they call an out of network service, where patients are getting surprise bills later on. All right. So how can people ensure that this doesn't happen to them? How can they protect themselves will if you're going to be getting surgery, especially spinal surgery? And you know, it's a thing where neuro monitoring may be called for you want to find out whether you're going to have it, and if your doctor says, yes, I'm going to order neuro monitoring, then you want to find out, who is providing it look up the company or are they a private company? Are they part of your insurance network because if they're not, you might be the one that has to pay out of pocket and the final piece of advice? I got. From insurers is if you get a Bill that you think is outrageous. Go to your insurance company, they may be able to negotiate on your behalf to get eliminated or reduced and interesting. But also, that's a lot of work are consumers going to get any help with this. When some places they are a number of states, including Texas or in the process of passing legislation or have passed legislation to protect consumers from surprise medical bills. Not just for neuro monitoring, but anything like this, that's out of network that you didn't know about the question is, whether there's going to be federal legislation. And there is a Bill before congress, that would offer some of these.

"Very famously in the New Yorker said Kubrick has taken a quick witted story and controlled it so meticulously that he's drain the blood out of it. It's coffee table movie. Yeah. We might as well be two three hours slide show for art history majors, and I just didn't see it, man. Like, it's a three hour film. But it needs to be because. What you where you start with that character as Redman like, I get the Muzzy like eighteen or nineteen. Yeah. Something like that Redmond. Barry, the beginning that movie and one legged Barry Lyndon hobbling into that carriage. And. Yeah, when you think about that you've gone through a journey. He seen a life. You would not have gotten into hours. Oh, for sure, you know, it's necessary to be the song, and it is slow, but I was never bored. No, I all I did a boring movie at all Ian grossed every scene if you're on the movies wavelength as humor it has kind of commentary on the world at the time or the interior kind of change that's happening within within very Lindan. Yeah. Yeah. There's nothing dull about it. There's there's just too much going on in every scene. They all feel like they have a purpose in their propelling things forward in their giving more information about this period of time in some of them do proceed very slowly. But I mean, they it also allows him to have these like incredibly beautiful moments like the scene where lady Lyndon leaves the card game table and walks outside and is kinda lit by like moonlight. And you had the this amazing contrast between the blue night lighting of the of the exterior and the warm interior lighting through the window in that wonderful tracking shot is berry walks out to to meet her and kiss her in concert in the movie just really takes its time and draws out that moment, and it it has the quality of like just a wonderful classical kind of cinema. There's something so movie like about that. Yeah. That particular moment, also real. All of the period too. I think yeah. I don't think people. It's not modern day New York City. I think was slower pace back then and Scorsese talks about that. Actually. I think it's part of the a life in pictures documentary is all about Kubrick. But but Scorsese says, you know, what Kubrick did with the period film was he took it back in time. And he actually allows you to feel the slowness pace of life in that period rather than being kind of amped up like don't get bored modern day take. Yeah, it's it's it's a much more slowdowns food end. Once if you're willing to go with to just like surrender to the the case of the movie and just become completely engrossed in it. I find it. I mean, it's one of those movies that I could watch one hundred times over and over and over again and never get bored with it. You will Casey. Yeah. You're gonna hit a hundred how maybe maybe I will I already can't wait to see it again. But for sure wanna see it on the big screen. Yeah. With great sound, and like 'cause the music I mean, we haven't gotten into that like Huber, of course, loves classical music, and in this movie he has free rein because it is during that time period. So he just goes nuts with it..

"What is the logical justification? And he just wants to be like because it looks cool Stanley, you know, and we so he knew to get between Stanley Kubrick and NASA and try to you know, he was not up to that challenge. Right. Mentally, you know, he said that working with Kubrick was like one of the best experiences in terms of the work that he did he the war room was the best that he ever made. I think he's right. But you know, he just he just could not go there. And then when Barry Lyndon Kim around couvert went to him again and said, I can only pay you half of your normal rate. But we do this. And then he do you made this very easy Stanley. No, I'm not gonna do it. Right. Like six weeks went by in Kubrick came back to him and said, right? I'll pay you normal rate. Please can be this movie. Wow. And but the thing that was tricky from set design perspective is they didn't build sets. Right. It's all on relocation old houses in so castles and enduring the production. Apparently, it just got to a point where. He was he said he literally was questioning every decision to the point where he had no bearings anymore. And he basically had delake take some time off go to therapy, and like build himself back up and remember all his accomplishments and everything and kind of get to the point where he could make a judgment call and feel at all confident about it because kind of broken him down. But he did win the Academy Awards. So yeah, he's considered around and stare at. Man. That's crazy. And also believable in annot that he spent a full year in Ireland before I mean, it was a 'Europe rep. Yeah. And and by you know, you know, everything I'm gonna say, sure, sure. But for those of you out there who don't know the back story is mister Kubrick was going to do a film and his entire career wanted to do this Napoleon foam, but a movie came out called Waterloo did not perform well. Yep. Right around that time. So he scrapped it, but he had done all this research on the time period and did not want that to go to waste. So he picked up the book the factory book. He was going to do. He looked Vanity Fair. I yeah, that's what hurt and he liked a lot about Vanity Fair. But he felt like it's too much to condense there's much event that scope is too big. So he didn't really see how would work as a movie announcement brought him around to the luck of Barry Lyndon, which is the title of the book. Yeah. So he had all this knowledge about the time period. Very famously composed this movie based on paintings. Yes. Yeah. Who were they? So as Gainsborough Hogarth in stubs were some of the painters, and he wanted to go primarily with paintings from the same air that he's depicting. Yes eighteenth century, but he cheated a little bit in went back a little further a little more head as well. To kind of. You know, it's it's about three hundred year span that he's drawing from for the paintings. Well, it's amazing when you're when you're seeing some of the shots at so clearly the frame in the composition is. So clearly mimicking a painting. Yes. But also like there were so many shots like that. Where the there was virtually no movement from anyone maybe their hands. And of course, that one great great shot when when the when the kid comes in among done. Yes. At the end and. Sitting dead still and that one is just a regular. Taylor. Direct reference to eating.
