The roadside ladybird has been a public face for this up until now the media has loved her.

Traveling with the first lady has started referring to her as mrs. vice president. How serious is that. i don't know not fairy. But they've clearly picked up on something real about the way.

The congressmen go see lady bird tenants and put out some grainy black and white photos showing their ramshackle conditions tin roof shacks with collapsing foundations. No running water basically. She's being made to look like a slum lord and those optics as they say in politics are terrible. It could have been worse. I've got to thank some way to turn it into.

In congress is war counseled dean rusk mcgeorge bundy and robert mcnamara all holdovers from kennedy are pressing him on vietnam and he has a raging toothache and i was almost asleep. A little after tway out. He called me. It was a sad happy. Talk large about the alabama tenants and about his restive desire to seek a way out of the burdens. He carries but the real source of his pain. He's actually thinking about not running. November linden is fundamentally insecure. 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.

The next morning and night we only talked about the psychological aspects. I don't know though that either one really understands the depth of his pain winning af faces up to the possibility of sending many thousands. American boys vietnam both ladybird linden can see the writing on the wall. Vietnam could easily derail his presidency. Their ambitions for civil rights the sweeping great society programs. He's just laid out for his doctors leave to go back. Washington bird hands them. An envelope marked personal but its contents are political to on the phone the night before linden had asked her to set out the pros and cons. I wrote at for london about a nine page analysis of what i thought he situation was. I she types out that press release. It's a bit of psychology. This is what it would feel like to announce you're not running. Then on a spiral bound steno pad ladybird writes those nine pages laying out his options This letter or what. I think is more accurately. Her strategy memo is been sitting at the lbj library forever. Pretty much overlooked by historians.

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. They are just absolutely trying to stop. Cut the amount of people that can vote right cutting rolling voting to try to get away with vote by mail. Trying i mean i. 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. That brings out the vote mark. So let's just get rid of sunday voting. It's so blatant racism The is just shocking really. They don't care though they're shameless. they're totally shameless. 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
Bellwether no more? Ohio misses presidential pick for first time since 1960

The last election in which Ohio did not pick the winner of the Buckeye State going for Richard Nixon over John Kennedy that year, But starting in 1964, when Lyndon Johnson won, Ohio was picked a winner in every election since until now.

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. So in nineteen, sixty, five constance left her work in the south and moved back to New York City. Shortly thereafter, she became the first black woman to serve in the New York State Senate. She was also elected president of the borough of Manhattan which made her the first woman in that role. During her time as a politician constance focused on raising up under served communities in the city like Harlem and East Harlem in nineteen sixty, six president Lyndon Johnson appointed constance to the US. District Court in the southern district
Interview With Hayden James
"Wary are you in? Sydney. in Sydney. Yes. So I live in Sidney Australia is camera everything's Okay you look great. Ula Great. Yeah. Yeah. Sweet Yeah in Sydney in my studio. I, live in the northern beaches, which is basically like I'm right next to manly beach and so I the Hassi with my wife and baby boy and I built a studio in one of the kids rooms and it's like a room within a room. So we kinda built it up over a COUPLA months? And when I close it all you can't hear anything. So at some I, get to let him using whatever. That's really nice man and yeah. especially with a kid to it's it's nice to be close to home but still have your own space I can come in here and cry can unknown me. It's great. Right, you can go be the baby. That's so funny man how's your quarantine? How are you guys doing out there? Honestly like okay it's it depending where you live in Australia I think the answer will be very different Yep in Sydney. It's been. Orion. It's we haven't had a huge amount of cases. 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

"lyndon i" Discussed on This Day In Esoteric Political History
"Like after nineteen sixty five. Okay. The work has been done but that is a really important moment for Johnson because he continues to show. A responsiveness if not a not in complete responsiveness or responsiveness to the calls for justice from black activists and he's not the driver of it, but he's the president and he makes it happen. So, as we start to wrap up here I, mean, maybe we can talk a little bit about just conventions in general and showdowns at conventions. Obviously this year I don't know what kind of lessons we draw from their conventions given how much of helping when Asterix, there is next to it but you know I think Nicky, touched a little bit of on this about how the nominating process has become much more. Buttoned up parties have become had much more control. So you know my instinct is to look at a moment like this and say, Oh, we don't get these kinds of big fights happening all at convention anymore convention is no longer the place where the big fishers of a party come clashing together. Nevertheless, I was there in two thousand, sixteen at both conventions where did feel like, oh, my gosh, there are real. Voices that are clashing here. So I'm arguing against myself I suppose but I'm asking I'm asking do these kinds of moments still have a place at conventions and will we see sort of hammer versus Johnson showdown anytime in the future? So there are still meaningful fights conventions they tend to have to do with lines in the platform which are indications of the direction that the party is heading. You see these over abortion. And need one, thousand, nine, hundred, and one, thousand, nine, hundred and the Republican Party. But even in two thousand sixteen, there were a lot of fights and the Democratic Party over what the platform was going to look like and you also see in conventions where they're actually delegates you do see booing in hissing and and fights that come out on the floor when delegates who supported opposing candidates clash with one another but. You know a lot less than you used to the nineteen fifties and nineteen sixties these first televised conventions. Who is going to become the nominee is still up in the air, and so these battles have much more meaning because they have a much more immediate consequence like who is the nominee going to be that I think is well in the past and if we continue to do these virtual conventions, I mean basically the only thing that they're going to be our messaging events. Watching the DNC this past week it felt like a really big PR move to show we're united. We're all things fried. We all support biting at felt like it was necessary in these unprecedented times to sort of create solidarity as much as possible, and so when you had all of or good portion of the DNC contenders are possible candidates all coming together and having these conversations and telling their Joe Biden moments and I was kind of like. Not. All candidates actually got to show up there. Wonder. That was curated to all of that was curated. I was like wow. I mean, when you when you attend to convention, even you know in the last couple of cycles, which has Nikki's describing is still a very buttoned up affair. There's a moment where you can tell like, oh, the TV cameras are here Oh this is the primetime stuff and it gets buttoned up and this year it was just. That everything was those two hours at previous conventions that made for TV where. No nothing and you know just by nature ethic of the medium and potentially serve nature of the moment you could tell that everything was going to be that it's hard to hard to pipe in booing and hissing through. Soon. Motivation. That would be amazing stuff. The spirit of conventions. Zun to say booting and storming out of the room. Thumbs down. We'll see. All right. We're going to leave it there.

'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.
"lyndon i" Discussed on Talking Practice
"School Design. This is talking practice. A series asking asking renowned designers to provide an inside glimpse into what they do why and how they do it exposing the ways in which their design imagination is articulated through practice. I'm grace law professor architecture and chair of the practice platform. Thank you for listening and we are delighted to have with us today. Architects Linden Neri and Rusada who partners and Co founders of the shanghai-based Nary and who design and research search office Lyndon and China's projects span typology and scale from architecture to product design. Recent projects include the art center in China Anna the Susannah Chapel the unfolding village installation for the Stockholm furniture fair and the Ching Pyongyang. Zo Retreat in China named the two thousand fourteen designers designers of the year by Wallpaper magazine Nary and who are winners of the Elle Decor International Design Awards and have been inducted into the US interior design hall all of fame. They are also the creative directors of stellar works a Furniture Company and have designed a range of products for companies such as our Timothy Camila aspira Fritz Hansen altona foul among others in two thousand four. They founded design Republic a concept store and online platform that showcases the work internationally renowned designers. They have also actively organized Shanghai's annual festival of design for several years Linden and Rossana are teaching a studio at the GST this this semester entitled Reflective Nostalgia Alternative Futures for Shanghai. Is She Kumon heritage. Welcome Linden and Rosanna. Thank you for having joining us. Hi Grace we are so delighted to host you all the way from China and you coming to the. GD Is such a treat for us. I always liked to begin our conversation's just asking you to tell us how you got your start together. Give us a little bit of your personal story will resign China and I were friends and we dated initially at Berkeley before we actually started practice so in many ways personal relationship relationship came first and the idea of working together came next but we never really plan to work together. Yeah but actually actually I would say that our initial encounter. Even though we've known each other firm many many years in a church setting setting in the bay area. We've never really talked to each other or gotten to know each other and it was really through architecture that we initiated the first conversation and I was seeking Linden's advice when I was applying to college and I I was thinking about architecture seriously in the my sister said Oh. There's this guy at Church who goes to Berkeley Eighty here. He's a rising senior at Berkeley and I was a senior in high school deciding what major to take and she said. Why don't you talk to Linden? And that's really how we started talking because for years we've known each other we've seen each other but I've never really talked to him right so then it was Berkeley that connection because you were starting writing and then you're of course graduating. I'm assuming that during that time period you then went off to the GST directly or no in for a non. I worked in San San Francisco for two years but obviously when her sister s Meteo Advice I had an ulterior motive because resent Oh was choosing between many any different other schools and I don't believe Erkki was really tough choice but I should hear that this would be unperfect avenue for me to have this personal relationship chef so I brought on my drawings and if you look at my drawings as an undergraduate they were extremely artistic because I was an art art major initially at Berkeley and of course she was mesmerized. I initially took drawing absolutely yeah with his drawings and and Risen in fact as this question which was kind of interesting to think back now. She said Lyndon I heard that architecture is a very hard profession. You hardly make money out of it and I remember saying will you make something out of architecture and you don't wait for architecture to do something for you fast forward. You both ended up doing graduate work in different places and Lynn You at the GST and Rosanna you at Princeton Princeton. When did you decide then that Shanghai would be your base? That's a very good question because we never really thought of Shanghai's our base. He's I was at the jeers. The and I went to work for Michael Graves for ten years. Not really knowing that we would even want to practice service and resented eventually join Michael's office and it was a project that took me to Shanghai and both of us always had wanted our kids to grow up in a Chinese speaking setting because we thought it would be important for them to speak Chinese growing up. But we didn't really know how so. So if you think back fifteen years ago you would think Hong Kong or Singapore ideally those would be time blazes or Taiwan one but then initially it was me was sent to Shanghai and I told michaels office about time that if you were to bring me over you need to bring my whole family. It was supposed to be just six weeks and we were there for a project specifically and stars came. That was two thousand three and we couldn't leave the country and that six-week became three months and the client got so used to being there monitoring. The project in the project moves so fast that they realized maybe it was because of this decision. That made it happen so that initial six weeks assignment turned into a year ear and by the time it was over resign and I decided that perhaps I would be a good place for us to experiment and to start our practice and so we came came back solar house. One was difficult. Part of my professional life was going to Michael and telling him that I was going to resign. I can imagine after being so long with practice and then of course all of the risk that is inherent in starting your own practice and then again in another country. Hey this is a big move for both of you so then persona tell me as you land now in Shanghai. After this year that now becomes many years describe. How have you been practicing now together as a partnership? I think like Lynn said Shanghai was never in the planning. It was never strategic Shanghai at the time when we first went for three on the Bun the project that brought us here. Was Bob the place it is today. In fact a lot of our neighbors and Princeton I remember because we have three very young kids. The third was only four months old when we went to Shanghai lot of our neighbors were asking us what. You're taking the kids to Shanghai. Like how can you survive and I remember remember saying to them. I think they have kids there too. During the first year I think one of the deciding factor for us to decide to stay was one day. We heard art kits speaking to each other and Chinese and I said to London. We have to stay here for them to have that identity and and that experience so the practice for me. I think it's extremely personal. Because my father's from Shanghai and so on the personal level the first few years living and working in Shanghai I felt like for the first time in my life I understood my father because growing up there so many idiosyncrasies and strange things in him that I could never really fully understand and identify with and immediately I think think living and encountering and interacting with the Shanghainese. I felt like I saw a little bit of my father. Everyone and that was just very strange for me but deeply significant and meaningful and then on top of it I think working architecturally on a lot of the obsessions. We've had over the years and issues that were interested in with regard to identity and culture. And how that is produced and signified right by built work it. All kinda came to fruition when we were working in China so just to get a sense of the context of your firm. How many employees please do you have now including all different satellite offices? I think we are a hundred ten hundred ten but includes product designers interior your designers graphic designers administrator administration in China. You need a lot of administration because we do a lot of paperwork and also a lot of these convincing and design republic look for separates another sixty. That's very helpful. One of the things that I think is very distinctive about the work. Of course. Actually there's already a a lot of knowledge about this when one looks at your work. There's obviously interests in adaptive reuse in the historic preservation aspect with a very distinctive stink. Tive character I think both of you impart what are the mechanics of the office of you. Tell us a little bit about how the office structured and how you support each other. When when we started the practice it was naturally very difficult? People always think of China and specifically Shanghai us all these gaming towers and so naturally when you said Your Arctic and Shanghai of course that makes a Lotta sense but you have to remember i. We both worked for Michael Graves and Michael Graves didn't really have not many towers and Michael's pedagogy or aesthetic sensibility does not necessarily lend itself quite comfortably with the developers in China that time. So when you went in there are experienced injury help us but what helped us was the notion of an interdisciplinary disciplinary practice. So at Michael's office we were taught to not just design architecture but also in tears and product design and certain extent graphics. And that was. There's a total package so when we went to Shanghai. We didn't really have projects so it was a perfect opportunity for us to just kind of scramble and do whatever was there. We did logos we did Menus for restaurants. We design forks spoons chairs. Whatever is needed and the idea of having having this idealized practice was thrown away? I remember having an office and resent US said you know Lyndon is great. It's Nice but we have three kids to feed and so when reality sets in I start scrambling because at Michael Graves amazing projects amazing clients. And you think it's easy and no it's not you're put in a setting. It's not even place we know. I mean we both speak Chinese. So that's not a problem. We know Asia but this is a different atia a different city city that were used to and it was raw. People didn't really understand the western sort of structure of how things were build let alone the billing process so so if they pay you. Twenty percent of the fee that you had proposed you should be happy and so we started doing all these different things and we have forgo. The notion of the idealized lies practice. So structurally we start hiring people that have interdisciplinary background. If you're good with furniture we would hire you and we would then make sure that you understand architecture when you come to our studio if you're good with interiors you better understand who designed this piece.

It makes a Walmart here we go we should've gone with the Linden's. Dad Is Catchy or the Lynn. The Lens Easy easy to find the plan was for America. This is the grand design right and then the world to defeat the centuries all Jewish cabal and become a totalitarian dictatorship rule based small lead of Golden Souls who had mastered Linden's philosophies just normal stuff great so basically quickly just a few people a few chosen. 's live here you want to get rid of the Jewish Kabbah and replace it with a small cabal of lunatics right right like a small yes. The people who weren't golden souls would become soldier citizens with no freedom great. Now that is also fun sell you can either golden soul or you could be one of these footsoldiers yeah. It's a slave soldier. Base great schools would teach linens ideas which would lead to unprecedented technology technological leaps by the way Ah the whole time we've been talking. I've just been thinking this guy has an eye towards the future of technology. He sees he's he's he's Zelic Silicon Valley and his brain dingo Russians began fundraising at airports and crowded businesses. Their goal was to get large loans for research. They told people that you're GONNA get those airports. That's where you're going to get your hundred. They stop that but that was a thing for a long time. I only know that because of watching the movie airpl- of course that's how most people but right it must be yeah so what just like tons and tons of people asking for this was before this is when you could just go to the gate right so there was no security so you feel sick about how easy it was to get on a plane yeah. Those were the days when you're just a cab ticket yeah because now we need a some group to go through. The doesn't actually do anything except take your water so you have to buy more. It's weird. It's almost like they've made billions of dollars selling water on the other side of those you know he's versions began fundraising at airports and crowded businesses. Their goal was to get large loans research. They told people they would get huge returns. They're out there. They start taking a manager senior. Citizens who are taking the bait loans were rarely repaid. The fundraisers would bring in two hundred million over the years. Wow the Russians ran various businesses one a computer programming company had clients including Citibank Mobil Oil and A._T.. And T. all good companies always happens with these groups <hes> they they start pulling the money from all the the the cult members. I read about one guy and he he was like married and then he got into the an N._C.. L. C. and then he left his wife and then he he gave all their money to the Colt and then and then they had to give twenty dollars a month to Linden didn't which was a pretty decent amount at the time and so he they would just all go on unemployment or welfare and just give the money to him. That's cool yeah so it's a cool chill system yeah so he's just basically raking making money and then now there's interesting eventually. He needs more money so now he's getting corporate infusion and then you also go after like a guy who owns a company and you get him into the Colt. You know it's all right good stuff yeah linen gain influence through through the N._C.. L. C.'s worldwide intelligence gathering apparatus okay. What is I'm picturing a robot with no wires so a member of Reagan's National Security Council said it was quote one of the best private intelligence services in the world also which was so the N._c.? L. C. has created an intelligence gathering group and now the Reagan is saying that they're the best intelligence cather's in the world one of the Best Lau N._C.. L. C. Higher ups. We're now being invited to sit in on an S._e.. Meetings my gosh they make connections with Reagan. David convinced the Reagan people that they were smart and gathering intelligence that was important and now they're literally sitting in on an S._e.. Meetings boy could you imagine <hes> an administration where crazy people sit on N._F._C. meetings. No it's somebody that will happen. Maybe N._C.. L. C. agents impersonated media and exaggerated linens credentials they strategically pick sides in international disputes and and dozens of governments then paid them to gather intelligence so they would like the pig the rich salt within England breath the Falklands England Argentina and then they would go okay so England on this one and then we giving information they wanted and get money right. Then's E._l._C. published a periodical executive intelligence review bill in Iran a lot of bad intel. This was partly due to Roy Franken Hauser the Grand Dragon of the Pennsylvania K._K._k.. Who Befriended Linden in nineteen seventy nine? She's Christ Roy said he was a messenger for a mysterious intelligence operative named code-named Mr Ed he made he just made that up as Mr Ed well sources a source source of course no one can talk to a source of course that is of course the Mr Ed would pass messages to how am I going to do anything but of course doing that I couldn't either I mean it's the most fucked up thing I've gone from downtown. What is it Mr Mr Ed pass messages to the highest levels of the in White House? It was always telling Roy about wild plots against Linden's life. Okay all right so this is mysterious characters got. All these connections also keeps telling Linden which Linden already says but now he's just getting it reaffirmed right Lindon said Roy could quote detect nasties by their wiggle. I which we all I mean the best yeah for sure but MR ED did not exist. Roy made him up interesting. Most of the intelligence was made by Roy and Roy or even had a friend pretend he was Mr ed and go to meetings with Linden that guy dude what if he knows just shut up to sit nods fucking crazy just look not into it in one thousand nine hundred linen ran for president again his platform included building a tunnel under the bering strait his own version of quantum physics and making his wedding anniversary a week long national holiday so trump is is he dissolved the U.. S. L. P. in ran as a democrat. Oh my God this guy. He thought there's not a conservative wing of the Democratic Party so the D._N._C. couldn't legally banned him from entering primaries so linden ran a national half hour T._v.. ADS describing himself as similar to F._D._R.. Oh Wow and his name recognition shot up people magazine said he had the quote best organized fringe campaign in American history. He went one hundred ninety five thousand votes fifteen states now. He's getting matching funding so when you read history amount you can get matching funds so he's getting money money like this is all totally doable financially right in the early nineteen nineties Linden focused his scientific organization so he's a scientific organization called the Fusion Energy Foundation on a space-based based be weapon la the F. F. recruited respected scientists and was praised by government physicist for its quote top drawer technical expertise the F. F. Lobbied and met with Reagan administration top officials about these space-based beam weapons programs with this they met with Ronald Reagan's administration about making a space beam. You're about to say yes yeah what that's fucking crazy. In nineteen ninety-three February nineteen eighty-three Linden wrote that beams weapons would become quote a household hold word in America during the month of March okay in March Ronald Reagan announced these Strategic Defense Initiative Aka Star Wars a space-based beam weapons program. What what happened? It's just impossible. We need the beam weapon. The became the de facto star our spokespeople and we're often quoted in the media as respected space beam weapons expert well that is an oxymoronic title like peer the Racist Space Beam experts people want to act like trump. Is this unique thing we fucking ben here before yeah and it's just the nobody everyone actually get did not we've been here. The little regimes moved to a compound in rural Leesburg Virginia and our outside of D._C.. Because quote the terrorist organization organizations which have targeted Mr Larouche do not have basis of operations Virginia cult member later said Linda was just isolating supporters to make them quote totally creatures of the Organization the compound guard by men in camouflage with automatic weapons. She's the Russians. The Russians focused their support. <hes> on Reagan's nineteen eighty-four election they recruited two thousand candidates candidates to run in primaries nationwide but they weren't actually running their whole goal is to just smear Democratic candidate Walter Mondale so on every all these two thousand races around the country you just have a Republican or Democrat and person or persons terrible Democrats often just talking shit about round presidential candidate right right most had no connections Linden and we're just confused senior citizens or ultra conservatives trying to help Reagan well that sounds like the Democrats despite running as Democrats they praised Reagan and star wars while savagely attacking Mondale in Nineteen eighty-four n._B._C. reporter after a Pat Lynch ran an expose about lucians ties to the Reagan administration particularly the National Security Council in it the Anti Defamation League called Linden and Anti Semite and the Russians then picketed N._B._C. With signs reading Lynch Pat Lynch and posters and posted flyers in Lynch's parents neighborhood claiming she was running a call girl ring out of their home. Oh my God see this is how and this is still going on today. This right-wing tactic of if you say anything about us our our attacks on you will be vicious to the point it's pure intimidation and it works yeah. Linden sued N._B._C. U._C.. And the anti-defamation League for.

Member was brainwashed by a K._G._B.. Team which is pretty common for this to. I mean you laugh but those to work together. A ton like people think they were investigating. They were forming the see I j K._G._B.. Right yeah and given orders to assassinate him <hes> when they're working in conjunction and you are an enemy urine and of course they want to take down some crazy later but Linden foiled apply by recognizing the symptoms of brainwashing and deprogramming the assassin <hes> using techniques quote absolutely absolutely unprecedented in psychological science. Let's go to the video. We don't have video evidence of this. Oh that's interesting so he's just sort of. It's hearsay the interesting yeah it's it's very much the definition of he's just like hey. This thing happened. Well well and I use it you guys we're eating lunch. I've got onto crazy update. I just got a man from the CIA aid his poop. I'm fucking crazy good at this all right Linden wrote internal and documents grow in internal documented August quote rats see them approaching see their beady eyes so many beady eyes all looking at US ugh.

Linda began to write a lot more one examples apples eight twenty six thousand word piece called Salat called quote the sexual impotence of the Puerto Rican Socialist Party sweet God. This is hard to even like <music> skies. We hired mark because this is genuinely horrible. Yeah look the Puerto Rican socialist can't fuck boy. That's my mouth change. The title right now it's the Puerto Rican socialist can't fuck so that that that like covered everything from Hegel to the agony of self consciousness to racial racist ramblings on Latin American macho culture and these kind of these kind of writings becomes Thomas thing happening all the time these just there's sort of just brands about whatever crazy man is thinking shirt. <hes> we call it twitter yes so Carol Number Carol is not married. She was banging the guy at the Gherkins so he returns the guy. The Guy Stays <hes> the Carol was banging. He comes back to New York alone. I don't know if it's with a with or without her didn't find that out so Linden decided that the this guy had been brainwashed when he came back and he d programs okay and then he said the boyfriend had been tortured by the way and am I six and given a trigger word and once he heard that triggered word he would kill Carol so he's did he right the naked gun because and he would not sure when the Manchurian candidate came out all right was waiting wait for this. This is clearly taken from the sixty two yes so he just took it from. I Hey Linden. I Know I love your right by but I remember seeing this in a movie frank. Frank Sinatra Manchurian candidate sounds pretty nice. nope the movie yeah nope not ring any bells but this is different. This is basically what we're just going to take somebody and manipulate them to the point that they are able to do the bidding of the system and that's what we're fighting against no sort of Mandarin candidate or whatever sorry you're talking about so yeah. There's none of that and I don't even think that's a movie as anyone even heard of that movie yeah exactly nobody's heard of it except for those hands it went up so nobody's heard of it. Everybody reads nobody's heard of it was a movie night here. We did that on the movie night here all right here. It has cats out of the bag. I wrote the Manchurian candidate there we go. Oh my God it's amazing but I wrote it based on this situation and I went back in time and wrote it then wow so I just have placed that in you guys this week where there were the rat where the rats and G._M.. And Shit eaters. I'm not I know what you guys are. After you want a rat rant enacting what automated Oh that ran I read read right. Bread allies are coming in here baby so right so he d programs guy and and also the the boyfriend one of the things he'd been brainwashed to do was to convince Cubans in the U._S._A.. To assassinate Linden sure quite a list of people trying to kill this guy yeah I mean it's tough Linden quote any of you who say this hoax your crowds your subhuman. You're not serious. The human race is at stake either we win or there is no humanity. It is very Alex Jones yeah the boyfriend wrote Flyers <music> <hes> about as brainwashing and then those are passed out in cities and cities okay the N. S._e.. L. C. sent tapes of of his deprogramming to the New York Times shares audiotapes of when he was deprogrammed right Linden Linden finally the Times article which is written on this quote there are sounds of weeping and vomiting. Oh my God day start and Mr White complains of being deprived of sleep food and cigarettes at one. That's quite a list for that guy to be complaining to. I need the basics water food mara at one point someone says raise the voltage but Larouche says this was associated with the bright lights is used in the questioning rather than an electric shock well but I to be fair. You know how it is when like you want someone to turn the lights on. You just like hit the voltage that's how we say so had to be about the light just imagine being so crazy that you torture guy and then send that tape to the New York Times look we found this information puking and wining and you're like what do you think not easy people say I have it easy. I don't I I do not you heard what I had to put that man through that turn those lights on Real Bright Adam any Elsie N._C.. L. C. members who were skeptical. Linden accused of being in on the plot then it's time to leave because otherwise he's going to d you program you know in January nineteen seventy four remember wrote a note saying she was being held prisoner enforced to listen to Beethoven at a high volume okay so he is just like is he is the clockwork orange. He's just lifting plots. If this is also a scientology thing okay great help people prisoner loud music and stuff she made it so she wrote this note and she and she falls into a paper airplane and throws it out the window. God aww someone gets it. Oh my imagine finding the whatever it is about to say imagine months is Oh my God where what the Hell police came and they were greeted by N._C.. L. C. members who said they were staying staying with her because she'd been brainwashed to kill you. Don't understand we've got to turn the voltage and they're like okay well. That's what you guys are going to do. Put her in a cell. Make Reader Pu. No thank you very much pu by early nineteen seventy-four anyone who questioned Linden was out of the N._C.. L. C. Okay by mid nineteen seventy made connections with the Ku Klux Klan and Neo Nazis great so we are finally we finally arrived at our destination where we wanted to be always Linden C._l._C. members met with clan leaders neo Nazis the nine hundred seventy five Lindon said the real enemy was the non N._C.. L. C. Left and the N._C.. L. C. should quote cooperate with the right to defeat this common enemy. Oh my God right yeah I mean look if Gavin enemy so nine hundred seventy six now going by Lyndon Larouche okay so now he's changes name back from Lynn Marcus Right. He ran as the L._P.'s presidential nominees. That's the party he made way back when we talked about okay so he's now finally running for President and they've they've already run a bunch of candidates around the country in you know smaller races right at a third party hated races. Hey earning the bell. We're killing it in here. At a third party already debate Lindon said if Carter one there would quickly be a global financial collapse fellow by a nuclear war. This isn't a debate <hes> <hes> and he said what happened unemployed Jimmy. I don't believe he has any factual information back that up. He won forty thousand primary votes. They add one hundred forty U._s. l._p.. Candidates in twenty one states one more nationwide votes than any left-wing third party wow and more votes than all but one right wing third party wow letting went to a conference. There's an appetite. There is people want this kind of great information. They want to hear something new interesting. Let it went to a conference in Germany in nineteen seventy seven and I was just about to say get this Germany hurry and there he met Helga Zap when he return. Is this person animated yes. She's a cartoon character. When he returned he called Jews a quote sub-human oligarchical species and claimed a Jewish conspiracy customs? 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. You're that means you're saying bad things for example. He claimed Israel the Rothschild's and quote other British families. WE'RE PLANNING NEW HOLOCAUST BINGO buying a new holocaust one hundred times worse than Hitler's well in December. He married Helga. She was fifty five. He was twenty nine. That can't be right while he was fifty five. She was twenty nine. Okay I by the way how amazing is it that we live in a world where that I was like what is right. Okay Gotcha yes finally yes and Lenin was now openly openly fascist well. That's the title of the movie a hell of a fascist elva trips journey yet. Yeah quote is not necessarily to wear swastika to be a fascist necessary to call oneself fascist to be a fascist..
"lyndon i" Discussed on The Dollop with Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds
"Nineteen twenty two. Hey Your Lord Jesus Christ. I was a religious podcast. I'd rather up and we are spreading the word of Jesus all right. Let's just let's just what I mean. It's not I'm not yeah. It's yes okay. It's it except God. Let's go linden her mile. A larouche junior was born in Rochester New Hampshire. 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. He's in now. He's just full on in to social gene drive as if he's diving in yeah he started using the pseudonym a Lynn Marcus lend Marcus yes so he's just changed his name. Okay her mile Komo. He said it was based on on his army nicknamed Marco Polo his army nicknames. Marco Polo apparently was that just during pool time <hes> you know I did see some kids the other day playing with Marco Polo in the park and one would just closed there is the one other ones would run around yeah so you play Marco Polo All oh just outside of a pool. We're GONNA live whatever that's a great army nickname. It's probably probably not a great army. Nickname is you can't see anybody. You don't know what you're doing. Yeah Okay Anyway. Lennon got a job at a local General Electric Plant to recruit workers to the cause okay so nineteen fifty four. That's just casually kind of bringing it up at like on a coffee break during fat Chu Yeah Man Oh man just think we all deserve a little bit more or everything yeah. Don't you think the worker should control the factory. What I'm just eating ruffles yeah? We're all just eating ruffles but it would be pretty fun to have permanent revolution. Wouldn't it and I'm not just talking in the factory. I'm talking worldwide. What if the world was the factory? ooh I love this sour cream cheddar guide so so that was the Socialist Workers Party things they would try to get you jobs at factories and then we would try to write pre-trading workers right in nineteen fifty four. He married land who was a fellow Hello S._W._A._T.. Member wait sorry he what his sorry his name is originally Linden he moved to Lynn he changes his name to Lynn and he's marrying Lynn will her name is actually Janice Neuberger neuberger but she changed it to Lynn so just everybody slowly becoming Lynn's lowlands going. I mean this is I mean look. There wasn't a lot of creativity happening. There's none I mean they call it. What city do we live in? We'll both be land. Hey Lynn Yeah and then we shouldn't have done this. Not You. Sorry the Lynn next to you. I was talking about the city <hes> I was talking about the city well now. I've got to Lens over here and I'm Lynn. What did you want land? Say something about me not Ulan sorry. We're trying to form a lens here again. Lynn we're was she named the Workers Union Lynn. 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. Linden then became obsessed with European fascism here. It.

"lyndon i" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Must be this is Lyndon. And this is Julian, these days live is spending, a lot of time in her garden, here, we have tomatoes eggplant, and then my cherry tomatoes are, are in here. 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.
