John Zmirak Reflects on the Significance of the British Monarchy
"To John S mirak. Oh my goodness. John, this weekend. King Charles the third was officially crowned all very ritualistic. I spoke at length to Naomi wolf about it in our one. Do you have any observations on that event? Yeah, I'm really, really glad the British monarchy survives. Even though it doesn't wield any power, even though I'm a half Irish. And I'm almost genetic, you know, my genes scream at the British monarchy, the way yours do at the Ottoman Empire, Eric. Being Greek. But as an American, I need to recognize that our freedoms are ordered liberty, come from no place else, but England. That the peculiar history of the English monarchy, and its relationship to the English parliament and the English people. The back and forth battle for power between the king, the parliament and the people, has produced the freest society in the history of the world. And it's interesting that our independence was a rebellion against Great Britain. Great Britain was the freest society on earth at the time. We wanted more. But the point is we weren't rebelling against the Ottoman Empire or the Mongol conic cons. We were rebelling against a pretty darn good monarchy that for hundreds of years had been subjecting the king's powers to the power of parliament. Starting in the 1300s with the Magna Carta, the English monarchs had century John. I'm sorry. Thank you. 13th century. With the Magna Carta, the English monarchs had to ask the parliament for taxes. The power of the purse was in the hands of the nobility and then of the common people.
Raz0rfist Unpacks What We're Witnessing in America Right Now
"Are we witnessing in America right now? Because it's really weird for me, raise a fish that I come to this nation as an immigrant who's been naturalized. He's worked in The White House, who was born and raised in the mother of democracies, the home of the Magna Carta, but whose parents escaped a communist regime whose father was actually liberated by freedom fighters from a political prison. And I'm at a point where I have to admit things like America has political prisoners. You know, I've had the family members of the January 6th who have been imprisoned for two years without an arraignment. And I look at the idea that a man who's not only a former president who to use a British term is the current leader of the opposition, is about to be arrested on a trumped up charge that even if it were true would be a misdemeanor slap on the wrist and a fine. Am I overstating the case? Or are we at risk of losing the republic to those who think that the mechanisms of the state are there for political targeting of their adversaries? It's true. And I think it's a fundamental, it's an inversion of the philosophy upon which the country was founded. The reason I made that Abraham Lincoln video wasn't because I harbor any kind of grudge against Abraham Lincoln. It was because Abraham Lincoln is one of the fathers of a belief that the government is ruling from the top down and lording over the states and that the states, in fact, Lincoln literally argued this, the states were created by the union. Historically, that's absurd. When England finally surrendered, they acknowledged each individual state by name as sovereign separate nations, right? And then they formed a union later on. This is really sort of sadly. It's interesting you bring that up. It's apropos to the point. Biden is a believer in this as well. And many of his followers, unfortunately, are this believe that ultimately the government, the federal government, is what gives us our rights.
John Zmirak and Eric Discuss the UniParty's Grab for Our Freedom
"Welcome back, talk to my Johnson miraculous here from Texas show. John, don't you find it at least interesting that Naomi wolf, who is, was very politically liberal during the Bush administration. She was pointing out precisely the same things that you were pointing out. And people like me were stupidly drifting along with the Republican herd and not seeing the dangers inherent in what we now know is the uni party and the deep state what they were doing. What George Bush and Cheney and company were doing was not consonant with the American founders vision, but the Republicans went along with it. Because one of them, we were panicked and they used 9 11 to panic us into giving up our freedoms. George Bush, one of the only true things the man ever said was that a bin Laden and the Islamists hate us for our freedoms. But unfortunately, bush was, you know, the figurehead of the movement to revoke those very freedoms and to create a deep state that the deep state as we saw what it did to the president of the United States in office. What they did to Donald Trump. He could not control them. What they did to Matt Gaetz to Devin Nunez. When he tried to investigate the Russian collusion hoax, they turned all their power on him and made him seem like a Russian agent of influence. Congress can't stop them. The president can't stop them. The courts can't stop them. The Patriot Act and I did warn about this in 2006 in my entry in the war on terror in American conservatism and encyclopedia. It's a 900 page book. I contributed the entry on the Iraq War and the war on terror and a couple other things. I said, this is not so much a repeal of the constitution as of the Magna Carta.
Why Does Robert Wilkie Know so Much About British Culture?
"I want to talk about your incredible military history before you serve this nation as a civilian in the Defense Department and then as secretary in the veterans affairs administration, but explain to our listeners on millions of lists across the nation, why on earth, an American knows so much about British pop culture? Well, I was fortunate, and it was fortunate that came out of hard times. My father was badly badly wounded in the invasion of Cambodia. And the only thing that kept him in the army was the good graces of a great general great neighbors, said no, we're going to overrule the medical board when to give this officer three years to recover and if he can go back to fort Bragg, we'll send him there. And as part of that recovery, he was sent to the United Kingdom. First is liaison officer at the royal school of artillery, and then to aldershot was he got healthier to the 16th power. And I was blessed to attend one of the great schools of the cathedral school in Salisbury. And the bishop's palace, my study hall was in the room where handel composed the messiah. Oh my gosh. One of the three copies of Magna Carta was something we saw every day when we went to sing in the cathedral. Eleanor of Aquitaine was kept in prison by her husband husband, Henry the second in what was our rugby field? Oh my gosh. So the history was just dripping off of the walls. And British popular culture, of course, animated much of America in the 1960s. But what struck me was how real the war was. You mean in the minds of the British people. And also tangibly, in that you could go to a city like bath. And look on that beautiful Georgian Crescent and you see pop marks all over. No Coventry or Coventry and the cathedral that have been

"He is a 32 year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency, where he has held numerous roles. Let's talk a little bit about the competition between the United States and Russia. The U. S is an open society. We have a free press a robust constitution of First Amendment that guarantees freedom of the press. Does this put us at a competitive disadvantage against Those nations that would take advantage of our freedoms and openness. It's a double edged sword. And I will take the open free democratic side of the sword in the sense that there in the Cold War and you know we talked about The spying business. Having that, as our mantra brought many of the best agents to it. The best supporters world to help us or our allies to help us was that flag Flying home. How would you like to be in a Russian KGB? J. So the economy in 1980, right? I mean, uh, advantage. It's a tough sell, right? You're probably a lot of people business, try and sell that, so it's a great advantage. However, the register the other side of the coin, which is if you want it. We have a system that looks broken in somewhere In some ways on this next point. We need to get a consensus and an authoritarian government. You don't need to consensus right? You can move more quickly. If the Chinese can move quickly. The Russians couldn't Iranians because they don't have to have some Congress and self. But I want to stick with Congress. Despite my misgivings about some Some parts of it. But my point is When you get into the cyber, the cyber type of world our openness provides, uh, level of order abilities that in warfare gives them an edge. Um and And I should add just one point. They're not to get pessimistic, I think were very powerful and our capabilities in the cyber war. The big issue is because we're a democracy going to your point, Barry In order to use it against the Naba Terry. We need to get a consensus. We need to get Congress to improvement. The president, you can't do that unilaterally into the It is action. It's covert action and they'd have to get approval. So Today's world being a democracy. You have to go through that process and what you're looking at 2016. And before that after that, They do not have the same compunction constraints so they have an edge. But I still want to stick with our system because at some point the system will come together. I know that seems Pollyannish in this moment, but we'll come together and we will get a consensus of what we need to do in the cyber warfare, But we don't have it now, and it is really disadvantage in a weakness now, which goes to your Your I think very perceptive question. Tell us about Moscow rules. What are they? And when did they start changing So When I looked at the 2016 election, and you know, I was hearing that the KGB was actually interfere in our political process I had I was in denial at first, but they can't do that. That's that's that's stay politically. Stupid, But now I'll come back and say Maybe it wasn't so stupid. After all. They're part of the second part was that's not how we played the cold War. Didn't somebody brief? Uh, it was actually in the Cold War. It was a You know, and Dresden it We can talk about that at some point. What were the rules? You can't find them. It's like the Magna Carta. You know, it's hard to get your hands around the exact document, but there was an understanding that there are certain things that weren't going to happen. Fairly on the Cold War. We were not going to counterfeit each other's money. Why we would destroy the world economy. So we both had the capability to do it. That never happened. We wouldn't Uh, rough up each other's officers because we were fighting all around the world and we would have no chaos in the intelligence world. But there are a few exceptions on that, but by and large Uh, that was an understanding The others understanding was We can run operations around the world against each other Afghanistan, you know Chili, Um uh, Egypt wherever the crisis whether Italy after the war But we we were not going to meddle in each side and each country's, uh, programs and I was in charge of it. As you know, we're a period of time Number two and then acting for number one number one, and, you know, I would just tell you the idea of phone came up and said, Look, let's run acute operation Russia's Look, that's that's how we play this game. And so, uh, Moscow rules. We need to get back to the table and I'll tell you it's not just the election election is just the manifestation of the problem. And that is, how are we going to keep that cyber warfare? We could have treaties on missiles and boundaries and treaties on the management of water and so on. But how do you manage cyber when it's invisible? So you have to have and that comes hard to a Democratic. System. In other words, we like things out in the open. We came very slowly. The intelligence business through history. We built up intelligence and backed away so How are we going to deal with fiber and the truth of the matter is, in my estimation, and I hope it was. But I was hopeful that I was hearing something and, uh, the first discussions with food that they were going to differ. To the second level officials to sort of work out things. I was hoping and I don't know that to be the case. Said. There'd be some understanding among the intelligence groups at a very high level. This is not a committee. This is really one or two people agreeing that We should We know what you're doing. You know what we're doing. Let's understand each other you either we're going to stay out of each other's political system. And if they don't, then you get to the really hard stuff. But this is where we need to consensus in this country. How do we respond? To that aggressive Russian aggression inside of our political economic system. So what is there obviously was a willful calculus made by Vladimir Putin to violate these rules. Did he just see us as sort of distracted and vulnerable and thought?.

"Rights that we have sort of lay. Yeah like there's there's a couple that are actually still in english law Part of one. The first clause which gives freedom to the church Number thirteen which basically says that Towns and municipalities have the ability to decide their own matters like electing a mayor that kind of stuff right and then the big ones the two big ones that were really huge when they were codified in the magna carta back in twelve. Fifteen was um clause thirty nine which basically says that you cannot be just thrown in prison. You can't be exiled you can't have your land taking away. None of those things can happen to you unless it's through the the lawful judgment of your peers or the law of the land. Yes took away the king's ability to throw somebody in the dungeon until they starve to death because they didn't pay him some bribe that he wanted. That was enormous and that today constitutes due process Under the law and then also habeas corpus where. You can't just like put someone in prison for no reason or never giving a reason and those are real. That's really huge. Ginette is where directly. Where we we get that from an american the west and the other one is Caused forty there's you you cannot sell and you also cannot deny or delay the rights that people have as citizens you you you. You can't do that so that was a big deal. And then the idea that the magnetic carta directly led to the bill of rights is is not an understatement at all at the constitutional convention when they were thinking of whether they needed a any kind of magna carta shoutout because it had a mythical quality in america by this time to To kind of keep the king of england at bay They thought well. We're not going to have a king here. We don't need a magnet card. Somebody very wisely pointed out. No we don't have a king but the government still acts at the behest of the majority of the people the majority of the people try to infringe on the rights of others. We need something. And so they came up with the bill of rights directly descended from the magnet card. So it is very much important document for sure totally still relevant still relevant as ever so everybody go out and get a magnet cardi copy maybe a poster a t shirt and rocket proudly anything else. I got that's all right well Shucks at he's got nothing else. Then i means it's time for listener. Mail call this kind. Correction on jack lobes can't be walked right past this. Hey guys longtime listener and super fan of the show if you like. We are friends since. I listen to everyday as get ready for work in very much. Look forward to your conversations so as your friend i can say that absolutely love all your content but found myself cringing throughout the jack elope episode. You see. i am a the historic preservation officer for the city of last vegas nevada and while the jackal floor is not prevalent throughout nevada. Still feel the need to weigh on a bit of misunderstanding about our south western fauna. The jack and jack lopes for the jack rabbit. Of course very large species of hair not a rabbit is in the cute little cotton tail wrapped. The lope is for the pronghorns antelope not a deer. You guys These are two different families. Gentlemen the clue is right there in the name of antelope. How did we miss that. It's not a jacket dear. I think we were so jazzed about even talking about jekyll upset. We stopped seeing the forest for the trees. Maybe so However a pronghorns is not a true antelope even but that's another story and further pronghorns have horns hence the name which are fixed to the skull which of course means that put horns on the jack rabbit. The prong horn must be deceased as well However deer antlers shed annually with no harm done to the deer. You can walk in any area. Where dearly of antlers on the ground there for deer does not necessarily have to die to give up his antlers. Okay well there's cert. Yeah that's got a while. There certainly are taxidermy. Rabbits and hares with deer antlers fix their heads. Ejaculate by definition is a jack rabbit with prong horn horns just wanted to give it a little gentle correction on all that but in no way diminishes my love for the show.

"Folks whoa well. Let's talk a second about how the magnet carter was applied shortly after john die of dysentery But i you have to. We should talk a little bit about like what it actually looked like originally because like you said it wasn't even what we think of the magnet courtesy today it had a lot of stuff in it. That has nothing to do with nobody alive today. There is like the basically the kings strong arm guy who went around and like extracted money and tortured nobles. If they didn't pay up he and his cohorts are named specifically by name. As they gotta go. There was stuff about you. Know if you're a widow you didn't have to marry immediately but if you did end up wanting to get married later you still had to go to the king. There is about like land inheritance all sorts of stuff like that that really would have mattered to a barren You know a no- noble person nobleman or woman in england at the time there were concessions but then like you said they were big ideas too but if like the average peasant working the land to surf Working the land in the feudal system in england at the time you could automate heads or tails this because number one. It was written in abbreviated latin. Which would have made it very hard to understand but the number two it was also written as one long i think about three thousand thirty one hundred word paragraph yeah i don't even think punctuation and it either it was it was written like it was you know by mad madman written on a big long piece role toilet paper up yeah It is now like if you read the magnetic card now it is separated into different clauses. Yeah but this was not the case at first. This happened years later who was the historian. William blackstone in the late eighteenth century. Yeah basically said like. I got to organize this thing that we we can't put this thing in museums. It's embarrassing like people got to be able to make heads or tails of this so that that happened later on it i was like this big long scrawl and there wasn't just one of them. It's not like you can go to You know if you go to see the declaration of independence and at the archives dc like. That's that's the one. That's the man happy. That's the master. A master copy. There were thirteen known. Copies in twelve fifteen of the magna carta. And there was. It's it's not like they had one then they ran it through the xerox machine. They just they wrote it down thirteen times. They're all originals. I guess it's maybe it's wrong to say there is an original when there are thirteen. Original right there's not a soul original Four of these have survived and their little variations. Because they were written by hand and transcribe but nothing that like cancels. Anything out is just sort of you. Know how somebody might transcribe something. And they're all considered for like legit correct originals. I think two of them are at the british library of london. One at salisbury cathedral in the lincoln castle. Yes and then if you go research how many magnetic card Copies are there today. You'll find that there's a lot more than four and here you start to get into just how muddied the history of the magna carta is because like you said when they i wrote this magnet carta wasn't exactly like what we think of magnetic carter today I had a lot more provision in it that had to do with the forest and there were so many things rules and regulations about how to treat the forest how you can act on the force. If you live in the forest who do you go. You know claim a grievance to that kind of stuff that a separate charter of the forest was created like those were basically moved out and then the document became the magna carta that we understand it today. writing that was i think in twelve seventeen when that finally happened yet. Twelve seventeen the charges of the forest was moved out and then Little by little this document kept getting like adjusted added to as a new king came along. They would they would basically be like i love the magnet carta. I'm going to adhere to it in slowly. But surely over the next couple of decades it became accepted and respected as the law of the land in england like it was a lot more than just concessions to end the civil war of the the war of the barons. It became established law in england. Yeah just those words are very like it's easy now to sort of not think too much about what law the land means but back then. That was a very big deal in that. This was the first time that laws came about that weren't directly from the king It wasn't royalty just saying here's how everything is everybody fall in line it was the people and albeit it. Was you know if you were a baron. You had a lot of money and a lot of political sway. It's not like it was like these. Were the surf's you know like a sling in. Hey in the hay fields that had any kind of input So we do need to point that out but they were not royalty so it was a big deal for the very first time actual Subjects of the king were weighing in and successfully weighing in on what the law should be. Yeah and there were there. Were like this the seeds to things that would become really important later. Like the idea that A council barron the twenty five barons Could could basically hold the king to account. It was like the seed that eventually grew into the parliament. there was another one there were there are some other really big ones in there that that over time one of the things that happened over time i guess chuck is got extended to everybody in england. Not just what. They called freeman which were landed. Nobility it got extended to everybody in england at least by twelve ninety seven when it was encoded into law in england at the latest by like the fourteen hundreds the fifteenth century It became just commonly understood that like those those rights those laws in the magna carta to everybody in england this sacred document And again when you you kinda had no choice when you came in there as a new king You may try and alter and change some things. But you couldn't refute the magna carta at that point it was. It became too important. Even if other law superseded at later on to the point where it's actual laws in the magna carta were rendered useless. In a lot of circumstances it was a symbol And it had this Like ed said had this really powerful aura about it Because it was the first laws not decree directly from the king's voice so you couldn't go back and he anymore you only move forward even if it was even if it was by tiny increments. We're talking about I mean the thirteen fourteen. Hundreds you know this is a long time ago. And it's going to take a long time. And ed points out that humanity has always been creeping toward more rights for more people. Yeah even if it's very slow and very clumsy at times in the magna carta was sort of the foundation on what a lot of the modern.

"Speak of got so you might be asking yourself like kind of what's the big deal because things were mass at various points in history. And there were revolts. Before and there was unrest before between the church and and the royals and like why was this. The big one. The kind of made everything change and there are. There are a few reasons for this One of which i talked about franson england being so intertwined John loss land but he lost normandy. Which was a really big deal The normans England had a lot of land in northern france. Like i said earlier. Since william the conqueror Got control of normandy. The battle of hastings and the normans were tight group. And they were very influential in england and then when john lost normandy. It was it was more than just losing land. It was it was a big deal. Yeah they started calling him. John soft soared after that. Did they really yeah. It was the second nickname john john. Soft sword The church at the time like we said was Was separate in. So they had their own set of laws. Even they didn't have to. They had ecclesiastical laws so it bitch official ran afoul. They were you know they could say no no. No the king isn't going to declare judgment on you. You come over here with us. We have our church law. It's probably not too stiff and to be honest And and basically john said you know. Forget that Tradition you guys are under my rule in my decrees and again. This just sent him further down the toilet. Yeah and then. I like i was there. Were no toilets becton into the privy the bedpan yes And then add to that also that the The just the way that people thought about the monarch thanks to like stephen langton the new archbishop of canterbury And the fact that the The henry. The first document of liberties charter of liberties. had already been established like just people were just thinking about things differently in all of this stuff kinda came together at this vortex and there was a there was a point where finally john was like. Okay at the very lisa. Need to be in with the the pope and basically before the pope instead. England is is a vassal state to The church again Which is a big deal But it put put john in england back in pope innocent the third good graces and they were fine again but that did nothing to help the barons In as a matter of fact The barons were just as put upon as before but now john was even more emboldened by having the full support of threat up again. And so the baron said you know what. Forget this enough of this. It's twelve fourteen and it's time for some change so they actually cobbled together A fighting force in took london by by by force. They stormed unoccupied london In open rebellion against king. John only ten thousand people though. Yes it's true. it really was. Well it's funny to think of now. I mean like ten thousand people living in london. But that's just the way it was at the time. So yeah you could probably take one in with ten thousand people but it's still significant to to mention yet in our in our smartphones. It's all we'd need. Look at them stick. Have you ever seen a dog. Say i love you gotta video of it. Oh my god they're bowing So yeah it wasn't a civil war but it was. It was a big deal. it was an open rebellion. John knew this was not a good thing. So in twelve fifteen. He said all right. I gotta make peace with these people to so let's get together We'll get that langton guy that i didn't like at all shows you how much i'm coming with my hat. And and he can act as the mediator. The barron said. Here's what we want We'll call it the article of barons in handed that to langton and langton said all right. I got a whip this into something that that john is going to actually live with and so he drafted this initial document Which included a lot of the stuff from the charter of liberties that dealt with a lot of this. You know the laws that were sort of on the books but also had some big ideas like you were talking about about just general rights at birth of humans and they met Ask lisa simpson where they met. Where runnymede twelve fifty running meet. June nineteenth twelve fifteen and they signed over fealty to john and they made copies of this thing applied that royal seal on it and that was it. It was the magna carta. Even though they didn't call it the magna carta yet. No and i was like why runnymede and turns out. There's actually a few reasons why runnymede had a history of being an ancient kinda council. Meeting spot was nice place. Well it was a balky meadow Which is another reason why was chosen because it would be a terrible place to fight a war and then also like you could see basically in every direction from you couldn't do attacks to fight in a bog meadow thought might have been like a really nice picturesque thing but it was done out in the middle of nowhere. You could see everything. Yeah well i get the impression that it was picturesque still as well but A lot of strategic strategic Assets to it too. Okay well that makes sense all right. Well i guess before we take our break. Let's just talk about the fact that this first magna carta that was not even called. The magnet cardi yet was ignored. John ignored it Innocent the three said. It's not even legal John was under duress to agree to this thing. And then a real full civil war called the first. Baron's war broke out and John died of dysentery in twelve. Sixteen kind of ended the first baron's war. But this is all sort of preamble to the the real magna carta.

"All right we're back parker. Stevenson and fred noonan hardie boys. No you're talking about richard and then john Will start with richard Henry the second died and his son. Richard the lionhearted Inherited the throne and he was beloved and he did a lot of crusades as well and had a lot of great military successes. And the you know had to spend a lot of money to do so of course right but he died unexpectedly and then henry the second his His dad was henry the second his son john took over the throne and remember when i mentioned earlier that some some people just were not good at their job. Yes this was john. He was just not good at being a politician. Not in good at being king not good at getting along with the barons and the church. He was just not cut out for it. Yeah and he's the main bag. I think we i wondered if richard the third was the main bad guy or the king in the robin hood. Legend john is it really. Yeah 'cause i remember. Richard lionheart is off fighting crusades in king. John's running the show and mean and incompetent way. That's who robin hoods fighting in the sheriff nottingham but in real life john was just he was not meant to be a king richard brother he was the younger brother and henry. The second their father didn't even for one he didn't even name john after king and he didn't give him any land So there was no no no area for him to rule. He was sent off to study with scholars. That's what he was supposed to be so he was never bred to be a king and he wasn't a very good one regardless because of that or or just naturally but his first nickname among the nobility was john lackland because he didn't avenue because he lacked land must burned him. You know that's pretty funny. But he was terrible in more the point like not only was he like bad with money and like he was a despot and a lot of ways to he. Lost land memorize said. The kings were most beloved. Were the ones that like added to the kingdom church ones that were the most despised the to lost land from the kingdom and that was what john did almost out of the gate. Yeah he was losing land to king philip the second of france and You know ed points out. And it's important to know here. That england and france back then were. It's not like it is today like they were very intertwined England held a lot of land in the north of france and they were constantly kind of going back and forth about like winning and taking land from one another. So it's it's gotta have to kind of program yourself from how you think of those two countries today to think about how it was back then So he was losing land to king philip. The second and Philip liked to john's cousin arthur of brittany and he had a competing claim to the throne. So philip was in arthur's court and you know john just wasn't doing a good job. He was blowing through money. He which meant he had to get more money out of the barons than even his predecessors did right and he was not winning land with this money so he was he was just going down the tubes fast and one thing. I saw chuck want to mention these. The english Were so intertwined with the french at the time that these kings that we're talking about henry the second richard the lion hearted John lackland they all spoke french and then interest. The english king spoke french at the time. Oh sure i like when you go to if you look at any of the old movies that are historically accurate and it's really hard to make sense of any of it. When like people from france or sending their daughter to england to marry into the. It's like it's it's really confusing. And i don't know if it's about the family lines but it's it is super confusing like the Oh like catherine the great and in some of this comes from watching tv but the tv show. Great is really good. Because i think it wasn't catherine the great russian. Yes or she was married off to the russians. I'm not sure if she was born. Russian i don't know it's all just very confusing. Oh yeah but i mean that was a really good way to consolidate power to gain even more land Would be to to marry like another royal family and just put your stuff together. Make your make yourselves. Even harder to town might have gotten that iran by the way but it was off the dome as the kids say. Hey that's all right man off the domes pretty great all right so. John is You know. I talked about this sort of thing. John is not doing well. He is ticking off the barons because he's have to squeeze more money out of them so it's like almost surely at least did okay with the church right to keep that Stool stable not true at all Pope innocent the third was in charge at the time and he appointed New bishop of canterbury named stephen langton who would turn out to be a big thorn in john side John did not want langton and so he got mad and basically took his ball and went home He took control of canterbury All the churches possessions and langton. You can't even come in the country. Yeah and so innocent. The third said. Oh yeah you know what. I'm gonna issue a papal degree that basically all church services in england aren't valid anymore. And you can't hold them and you know if it was you and me. We'd be like sweet. We don't have to go to church anymore. But it wasn't like that back then. It was a really big deal Ed said this was like dropping ecclesiastical nuclear bomb onto britain. And that's kinda true. Yeah because also the church was a huge employer in england at the time to so now all the people who work in the churches jobs are like well. are we valid. What's going on here you know. Do we have the same protections that we use to. It was a big big deal and yet for all intents and purposes england under king. John was at war with The the church under innocent the third and it stay that way for a little while And they just put john. That was it. That was the last box to be checked. Like he was at odds with absolutely everybody And was very unpopular king. The by anybody's anybody's measure Whether you were commoner whether you were nobility or whether you were a bishop you did not like king john very much. And then add to that that the guy that Innocent the third appointed to the archbishop of canterbury and this is also by the way. After the last archbishop of canterbury thomas becket had been murdered at the behest of john's father henry. The second murdered brutally too. I read a first person account of it. One more ghastly murders ever heard But the guy who came in stephen langton he was like a progressive hughes. Basically writing about things that questioned the the divine authority of the monarchy. How some people are not some people but people had some natural rights. All people had some natural rights that even king couldn't violate like really progressive stuff in this guy's coming into england at a time when it has one of its weakest kings in its history and basically set the stage for the magna carta to to kind of be written full stop. What else to add could dressed it up more. Put a little fruit on ten Just your voice went up. So i thought that was more i was using up..
"magna carta" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Bad that the people revolt. Yeah that was a fine line into some kings. In the history of england were were really good at being kings. I get the impression that the moorlands you conquered in the name of england. The more people you brought under your rule The happier you could keep the like the the barons the people who own the land. That that you know kind of all collectively made up your kingdom The better off you were but yeah you still going to need money to run things. So you're going to have to extract that stuff so you had to just push just as far as you could. That was the good king. There are also plenty of bad kings. Who would go way past the line and they were. They could be allowed to do that. Because in england kings were divinely decreed by god their authority was derived directly from god. So whatever they did no matter how unhappy that made you. God said it so this king is allowed to do it in practice. That didn't actually like work out all the time like it's not like the barons were like. What are you gonna do. God god said bright but they still kind of air that or around and at the very least even if you did in binder that directly. That was the custom and had been for a really long time. And that's hard to buck so you had good kings who still went up the line. You bag kings cross the line and when you put it all together more often than not. That line was being really kind of made to feel claustrophobic. And so the barons would be unhappy. They're the ones with the power. So if you push the barons too far they would push back and then you would end up with things. Like written laws and customs in decrease. That said. the king won't do this anymore right And there's also a third group in their kings just weren't very good at their job yet like i think history often like they often overlook sheer incompetence in favor of this person. Did all these great things or this person was an evil tyrant and like some of them. Just weren't too good at it. Yeah the the Like the day to day the franklin pierce's of the english king inch So we'll skip up to henry. The first In eleven hundred created the charter of liberties. And this was sort of if the magna carta was the seed of Liberty for people like you and me later. The charter of liberties may have been the the precede to that seed in a way because it was the first kind of official thing that limited the king's power just a bit in this case there were other things but it did limit to kings power to appoint a church offices Guarantee that any like inheritances would be carried forth And there were no bribes necessary so just sort of like cleaned up the the act of the royals in this sort of smallest ways. Yeah because before it was like you could. If you were the king can be like. Yeah i don't care give me some money if you wanna be legally married or give me some money if you want to be promoted in your church ranking like you could just extract money for anything in so. This is the first time where it was kind of like okay. We'll go. we won't do that. We won't keep pushing things like you were saying like it's just kinda cleaned up the the monarchy in limited their ability. It was kind of a big thing and again that came out of a bad king. That was Henry i who had to clean up the mess left by his successor or his predecessor. William the second his brother who'd been a bad king had overtaxed overstep the boundaries. And now there had to be some sort of document created to say. We won't do that again. This is where laws came from an in england like people overstepping bounds and being pushed back on right or the king just arbitrarily deciding things. Yeah so henry one dies Succeeded by stephen. The first and this one was a little dicey because stephen. The first ascension to the throne was Contested and resulted in civil war called the anarchy And anarchy was was a mess. It was a pretty brutal lawless. Time and Stephen think he wasn't around too long but he was quickly followed by henry. The second ruled for about thirty five years. Yeah i think right at thirty five years. And this was at the end of the anarchy but henry the second comes in and basically says all right. The royals are back baby. And they're going to be a bunch of reforms here. We're going to centralize power. Things have gotten out of hand with his anarchy and It's all under my control now. in a way this was it was good and bad. It's it's never great when someone assumes his absolute authority but it's also better just to have a more structured codified system. Then all these weird arbitrary laws that were kind of all over the place scattered about before exactly. Yeah so in. One of the reasons. Why henry the second did that. Because he was very much into adventurism he would. He would go out of england and try to conquer moorlands and that was his big thing parasailing. That was his so he needed. He needed some basically some some structure that he could set in place. That didn't require him to be there all the time. It and some of that like actually kind of benefited people In part because like you said it was it wasn't arbitrary anymore and there were like some real reforms like he set up a panel of judges. That would go round and in basically carry out criminal trials rather than just people getting wave crimes or maybe being subject to mob justice they were trying to apply some sort of actual justice to it. you could now. If you were a serf or peasant you could complain to the king and go over the lord of the the manner that you worked on head if he was mistreating you like that was brand new and so. There's some good things that were set in place by henry the second he wasn't like some benevolent guy or anything like that but he he did leave that legacy and it was. It was a big deal. A lot of people point to his code as the beginning of english common law. Yes he was. He was not a great guy. He was in fact a pretty brutal Person on the battlefield and he would Brutal leader he would any any did a good job leading on the battlefield and he loved going to war but he would cut the feed off or the Genitals from his enemies He would you know. Lock people in the dungeons. He was known supposedly for gouging. Out the eyes of a young messenger boy. one time who delivered bad news So he wasn't some great guy and he was also like he had to finance all of these travails in wars. All over the place and that costs a lot of money so a lot of what he did when he when he brought all this under his order was made a lot of money and raised a lot of revenue And was kind of just squeezing every last bit he could out of these landowners again with those kinda fees like you were talking about like. Hey if you're a widow and you want to remarry Pay me all right. If you wanna inherit some land burr title. Pay me if it. Maybe you can even bribe me. You know. i'm open to that right which is arbitrary in and of itself because the person doesn't necessarily deserve whatever it is they're bribing the king for In exchange for. And that's you know that's not good. It's also in direct violation of the charter of liberties that henry the i had laid out and now that there was that now that that had been established by henry the first the nobility could point to that and be like you're not honoring this stuff like this is something we can hold your feet to the flames over. It didn't necessarily work with henry the second Because he was such a strong king but it was it was something they think.

Oh boy you got one for me. Did you ever see the one about the murder house where marge becomes a real tour. You mean a certified real tour yes. Of course i dunno remind me. Oh so anyway. Marge becomes a real tour and she I think with line hudson's realty company boy. And it's like a kind of like a glengarry glen ross spoof is that little subplot but She she Tries to sell a house that like multiple murder was committed in To flanders and his family becua- maude was still alive and she doesn't tell him to murder house And feels like a tremendous amount of guilt and then finally confesses. And i don't think they ended up buying the house anyway. I don't remember but it's a pretty good one. That has almost nothing to do with anything. I could've just stopped right there. Were marge became a real tour because taking the real t. tests and Lisa comes along and teaches her how how to remember things using pneumonic devices in in In one example she gives she says you can put Like something you're trying to remember to a song. Like in twelve fifteen at runnymede duda duda the nobles and the king agreed. Oh do day. that's great that is one of my Go-to references for the magnet carta. You knew what mine is funny enough. That was tortured intro now. I thought it was great. Simpson references flays. Alive is what it was. I thought it was fantastic. Thank you and. I've never heard that. I don't remember that episode. I've never heard that little jingle says too great at my brain vintage classics simpson's When i think of magnet card. I think of johnny dangerously the movie with Michael keaton the very funny spoof movie because at one point I think the someone is on death row and they're being read fake last rites by fake priest as they walk down the green mile and they're just sort of making up latin terms and he goes magna carta master charge and i saw that in the theater when i was like ten or eleven and have remembered that ever since yeah it gets in your in your head. Two words they they go really well together. They have a tendency to stick around. And then also like you get the idea when you when you kind of perked little ears up about this magnetic card thing that it was kind of pretty important. People people tend to put a lot of stock into it. Yeah and She's known i'm looking at it. Can't even see what magna carta what does it mean Great charter the great charter. Of course yeah and technically the name of the magnet carter. What we're talking about. We'll get into all the little details and everything a second but It's called the magna carta libertar- them right. So it's the great charter of liberties is what it really is in a lot of people like i was saying they put a lot of stock into basically say say that this is the wellspring at least in the uk and america and i and by extension australia and canada of human rights of like civil rights of the basic rights. That every citizen has that like all kind of came from this document and that before that there really wasn't that kind of stuff and you have to really narrow your focus here because in this time period we're talking about around the twelve thirteen. Th centuries ce like england was still kind of figuring out which way it was going at the same time. If you went to the arab world you would find half a million people living in some cities while there's like ten thousand people living in london If you went to the west to modern day saint louis that cahokia mound civilization at like fifteen thousand people living there. China had been running and bureaucracy for a good thousand years by this time. So this is new to england and the english and their Descendants and ancestors around this time this era but if you narrow it like that yeah you make a pretty good case that for you and me those of us born in america you can trace your civil liberties pretty directly back to this document. Yeah in like even if the document itself as we'll learn Wasn't necessarily honored initially or even later It was it was that seed was planted that it had to be at least And we'll see later on you know it. It was in place. He kind couldn't go backwards from there. Even though some people did try later on some royalty. It just didn't happen so it it sort of ju- line in the sand and said all right from this point forward at least things for People any people other than not every person but people other than royalty at least won't go backwards from here no and like you said. They tried. they definitely wanted to. But when you lay down something like people have rights that are basic to them. From the moment they're born. That's a tough one to repeal. You know what i'm saying. Yes let's out there. That's that's tough to put it back in the box and good discussed for us bad for despotic absolutist monarchs. So should we get into a little background here. Yeah i think we should because we got we got some ground to cover. Yeah so the grab. Stir helped us with this and you could. I love it. You know you can tell when When our writers are really into something by sort of how much background they give us on stuff before they get to the stuff. Yeah i think that. I think it was into it. I think he was wearing chain mail while he was writing the he may have been but it did a great job with the setup and you know we have to point out that this was a time like you said where there was a king that ruled the land. And everyone had to do it. The king said basically and then you had You know you had people that ruled over smaller fiefdoms throughout the land but they still answer to the king but they had their subjects as well but it was. It was a bit of a mess like even though the king could kind of do what they wanted. The king usually new like. Hey i can't push things too far otherwise it gets really bad for me right so let me see if i can walk right up to that line as often as i can in many cases as far as royalties concern in sort of push things as far as like ringing money out of people For bribes or a quote unquote taxes. Or you know. Try just ruling with a harsh hand but not necessarily a hand that will.

"Dave, in federal way. Washington. Hey, Dave, what's on your mind today? Hey, not too much time. I want to give you my take on conservatives and their love of destroying government and I'll try to make it quick. But it's complicated. OK, you must be, um Yes, I will. Bill Kristol said that the Trumpers and the conservative movement are the hippies of the conservative movement and another thing, George will said. He said Republican politicians not only fear their voters, they don't like them now. All of that seems counterintuitive. But not if you think about something I said One time I said that the Magna Carta is the same as critical race theory. Why did I say that? Well, the Magna Carta is considered a great document now but back. Then they hated it. There were there were British nobles that were used to a feudal system. They were like, What might all the rights come from me? That's why. When Donald Trump was president, they kept saying that someone says serves at the pleasure of the president. Look, Democracy and representative government have not worked for George will and the billionaire Republicans. It has not worked for the poor ones. So what they're trying to do is mixed patriarchy, feudalism and actually, Pete. Sharkey feudalism and, uh, man, the other ones, But Baltimoreans, they're all reverting back to that. But it's not going to work. The Lords of the manor are going to be fascist. And the reason why I say that it's because they're trying to align everything. It's about bloodline. They're trying to align it with corporate interests. The tribe the tribalism. The tribe is corporate, right? And they and they and they always have been. I mean, this has always been the case, Dave. Thank you, Jeff in Spanaway, Washington. Hey, Jeff, What's up? Hey, I just wanted to tell you I was so proud. I talked to my kid here and, uh, I'd be proud I VW member. Uh, my boy just got into. He's been in the Boilermakers Union now for a little bit, And one thing, he said, was To me. We were talking and a lot of your talking points. He says, Uh, yeah, well, we have separation of church and state and the Constitution should we have separation of sounds like we should have the separation of corporation and state. There were a number of founders who actually argued for that. Yeah. I used to call it bribery. Right? Exactly. And now it's called free speech. Corporate free speech. Your Your kid is billion. Jeff.

What Is the Magna Carta?
"A lot of people. And i'm sad to say there's pastors that don't even know what the magna carta is or the mayflower about that. What is the magna carta jack. It's probably the the foundational birth certificate of what we know in our liberty and freedom today from the magna card in that declaration of individual rights and freedoms that have been given to us by god our original founding fathers bradford and those on the mayflower their next authorship was the mayflower compact. And it tells you right there that there's these structures these rules guardrails call them that are given to us by god and from those writings. We talked earlier before about john. Locke fifteen hundred says that. John locke wrote from scripture regarding the government of ma'am yes and we should live. I mean it's overwhelmingly obvious that were created by god he has based he says his image innis. We think freedom we know at tyrannies. Look what's happening right now in afghanistan were watching the big stick overrule the freedom in the love. That people have to be free. And it's so important. You mentioned the magnet carter and the mayflower compact mayflower compact was written actually at sea amongst people. That did not even know they were going to survive the trip and not all believers. That's what's so. It was one hundred and twenty families. I think i could be wrong with the number and there were some defectors to some people didn't even sign it. They just left them right now. they went. Who knows where they went. But if you read the mayflower compact. It's so tightly written but it's basically if we survive. Here's what we're going to agree to a transcendent order. Here's how we're going to govern ourselves and what's amazing it was an impromptu kind of add hawk creation in the middle of a storm of how does one govern themselves when you go to something. Barron that is locks question. Isn't it of who is a man in the state of nature and they were blown off course and they were supposed to go somewhere completely. Different would have been under the authority of the king. Had they not been blown off course right and then they ended up in a place where they had to come up with their own political

The insignia of Special Forces. Special Forces officers enlisted where Crossed arrows, which to be fair. The origin of that of the cross. Taro is Indian scouts from the late 18 hundreds. So so a man, Jim my surprise when I was given a book that I'd never even heard of cold. The last ditch By David Lamp l E M P E came out in 1968 Okay. I couldn't even read yet. The book has been out that long. And I've never read it and it absolutely blew me away. And, um s so I'll tell you why. Like I said, they're the end of our number to put yourself in the mind of Winston Churchill. And it's May of 1940, the German army as blips creed across Poland in September of 1939 within two weeks over running two thirds of the country. Then, of course, Stalin invaded from these In the interim, Germany invaded the Scandinavian countries, Denmark and Norway, both mechanized, rolling into Denmark, and then paratroopers into Norway. And it was all very swift. On Then, in May of 1940, they invade the low countries Luxembourg, Belgium, Holland and go all the way in into France, and they're rolling over everybody, right? And this was after several months of prep. This was when it was clear when Britain and France declared war on Germany in September 39. They had a couple months to prepare, and they still got Brushed aside So what was next? Um Churchill assumed the worst, he said. They're not going to roll up to the English Channel and then stopped there. They're going to cross the channel while we're down on her knees and they're going to invade England. My worst case scenario is that they invade England and they begin blitzkrieg going up to Scotland. In that event. I need a absolute Oh crap plan. And Churchill, Um, the consummate Englishman, right? And of course, you know, of all the upper crust or all the officers and general headquarters and and all that, And Churchill said is, his staff said, Well, that's okay. Prime Minister because we have the home guard. The home guard. Were these broken down old men or crippled people, guys who were missing a hand or whatever. And they, you know there's there's the stereotypes of them out Drilling with broomsticks and pitchforks and all this and they were supposed to be in case done. Kirk failed and hundreds of thousands of English soldiers were captured, then the home guard would be the ones bearing the brunt of the German invasion. And so they said, That's okay. Prime Minister We have the home guard. You know when they'll fight like lions, you know, on the whole thing, and Churchill knew that that was not what he wanted. Hey, didn't want conventional platoons and companies and battalions without tanks because they all were captured in France. He needed to put it bluntly terrorists he envisioned when he sat down with his right hand man, General Ismay. And then he said, the only hope we have is not the home guard. It's not old men in slit trenches, re fighting World War one because they will not slow down the Germans. If anything, the home guard should be practicing to retreat. Our only hope is that we delay the Germans for several weeks so that we can organize the resistance in the north of England up in Scotland, maybe out in Wales to the West because they're going to invade. Along thing, just Channel Coast or the East Coast. So if if we surrender territory to them, we're not not like we're gonna have a choice. But if we can buy ourselves a couple weeks and not fall In in in a fortnight the way Poland did. There's a chance that we can rush reinforcements from Canada on, but maybe we can convince the United States tol get involved The But the worst case of the worst case scenario is We need to buy ourselves two weeks at the very least, to evacuate Parliament, the bulk of our military, the royal family, the crown jewels of Magna Carta. The whole thing we we, If we're facing defeat, somebody has to buy us. Two weeks. And so was born. The auxiliary units. I'd never heard of them before, either. Um, Part of the reason is that it's still classified by the official Secrets Act in Great Britain. And when that book was written in 1968, the Veterans of World War two who were in the auxiliary units and had reason to be proud, said Hey, I can't even tell my wife that I was in the auxiliary units and some yank comes over and publishes a book. What's going on and The the Crown said it's okay. You got a lapel pin. So the story of the auxiliary units, this is gonna blow you away because the on leeway to describe Churchill's strategy for slowing the Nazi juggernaut down Was to be ruthless. Throw out all the laws of war of the conventions of war and commit acts of murder and terrorism terrify the crap out of the Germans. Blow up their fuel dumps their ammo dumps, etcetera. In other words, cells of men, highly trained men were going to stay behind and they were going to Terrify and terrorize. The invading Germans, But wait You won't believe how ruthless they were prepared to get when we come back. How are they recruited? What did they do? What was there mission when we come back the auxiliary units of World War two. You're not going to find them. I mean most books and they won't be mentioned because it was That seek 80 years later.

"magna carta" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"Kirk Show with Judge Ken Starr's protects all persons, including but not limited to the president. Certainly the resident excise From the Constitution and the bill of rights. It is only so to come back to what is the core issue. Incitement is when you essentially are saying, we want you to go take violent action now and so now it's important to analyze the text as well as the context. The text points in favor. The president, especially the exculpatory text about do so peacefully make your voice is known and so forth on. There is thus far no indication I've seen Charlie that the president was in any way advised. By the way, there's some really bad actress in this ground. We have an intelligence briefing. Did he have an intelligence briefing that morning? That said, By the way, Mr President and TIFA is here. Some very violent right wing organizations air here who knows who's here? Mr President. If he had that briefing, That would be a fact that the decision makers should take into account in terms of incitement or and inciting to insurrection. I think it's far fetched now. The president is, of course, subject right here and now to indictment in the criminal justice system. I hope that won't happen. But that's part of our equal justice under law. He should not be subject to impeachment and trial. That's a travesty, but he obviously like any other citizen, is subject to the criminal justice process. Well or so we would hope without the kind of circus that happened in the house with no witnesses. No due process, no representation just complete and total. You know, multi, just a couple our process and then you're impeached. Which is extraordinary. We never seen anything quite like that, right? The house is supposed to be deliberative. The speaker of the house cannot suis Ponte A just unilaterally say we're impeaching the president. She tried to do that impeachment one, right? She she said. We're impeaching the president. Hey, will be impeached, so go draw up articles. I said at the time abuse of her power, there should have been a vote. 100. What precedes the vote. Look at history. History is a great guy, especially when we look at presidential impeachments. Each presidential impeachment was preceded by numerous and careful hearings, a sifting of the fax a new assessment of the credibility of witnesses. Not done here exactly as you say. And the Democrats are saying to play Devil's advocate that we don't need the evidence. The evidence came here. But the more information we actually find It's not that simple. There were groups that were, they're coming with the intent to try and take federal buildings with militia gear and with out any of the remarks of the president, and so it's not that simple and judge can you talk about for some of our younger listeners? Why our system is this design the way it is why it is Supposed to be deliberative. Why we're not supposed to be able to Convict somebody in 24 hours or less. You have to have time to be able to build the defense to submit evidence. It feels as if this is almost like the Russian system where they convicted the Alexey novel, Lonnie Guy in four days or less. I mean, I couldn't believe it. I said, look at the similarities between the two of this kind of rush to judgment. Can you just from a constitutional perspective? Talk about why our system is actually built that way. It goes back to Magna Carta almost 1000 years ago that government whether it's the king, whether it's Congress, whether it's the president, whether it's the governor. Can't abuse power and what we treasure and a constitution. Democracy throughout the English speaking world is power has to be limited. That includes the power of the House of Representatives.

Google stops political funding for Republicans who refused to certify election results now Okay. Um, let's go to the stories from 2017 when there was a gaggle of Democrats. Posing the certification of the election. When President Trump Won the election and the and the Electoral College met on Capitol Hill because there is a long list of them. And shall we cancel them? No. There was none of that at the time Because Republicans don't do that. Because we're not fascists were the freedom, people. The left are fascist. They're not liberals. Forget about that liberal level. They're not liberals. They're leftist. Left us, sir. Fascist, You know, the who was that The Politico canceled Ben Shapiro. The other day they invited Ben Shapiro. He's conservative. He's Jewish star. They're anti Semites based on their own metric, and Ben Shapiro on Twitter. So today. I pointed out that politico, uh, politicos blow up over me writing a a playbook. They have a page They called playbook. They invited Ben Shapiro to write and what happened was the staff at Politico had a meltdown because they're they're mentally impaired leftists and Ben Shapiro. Where's Yarmuk every day, so they're anti Semite. And you know if he's gay, then they're anti gay. And and then it turned into more because they turned into misogynists homophobes at the political as well as being anti Semite. Bench appears that today I pointed out the politicos blow up over me. Writing playbook wasn't about me being canceled. It was about woke. Staffers cudgel, ng editors. Into never reaching across the aisle again. Now I have a pretty great example of this problem in action. You remember that New York Times forced their editor to resign. When hey allowed Senator Tom Cotton, who is a senator or Harvard Law grad, a combat veteran decorated on did they canceled hiss piece? Actually, they allowed the PCB puppet. That's why they, of course, the editor to resign because they don't believe in diversity of opinion. Ben Shapiro points out my friend's guy Benson, who is gay. Mary Katharine Ham. Who is ah woman were also asked to jointly right guessed right. A playbook article you know, one day. I know this because they told me so the day after the fire storm, The editors had sought them out and said they were enthused about having them do the same thing that they were having me do. Editors were supposed to set a third date for their slot, then, oddly enough, just after the issue at play book over Ben Shapiro. Political went dead. Silent on them. Communication stopped for days. Eventually, they gave Guy and Mary Katharine Ham and excuse They had overbooked. They said the same excuse you give your in laws to avoid dinner. I know this because I noticed there by lines never appeared. I asked guy Benson, Mary Katharine Ham. What happened? So they told me They just stopped talking to them. Now Guy and marry Mary Katharine Ham don't need playbook. They didn't ask for the gig. That's not the point. The point is that when the woke The work people like the world on fire over liberals reaching across the aisle. The message is clear. Don't try it again, so they don't Message received. Conservatives are preemptively canceled. How much in 80 maintained. Polarization Increased. Well done. Woke, scolds. The world is still safe from the productions and dangerous thinkers like Guy Mary Katharine Ham and anyone on the right. Is that great stuff? Yes, sir. That's the That's the stuff. That's that's not that's mainstream media. That's mainstream media, and it's not like these people are radical. Serve something and and by their metric again, Mary Katharine Ham being a woman, guy Benson being gay and Ben Shapiro being an observant Jew by their standard there now anti Semite misogynist home of hopes.

I think we should see more of this, Bruce, I think Republican attorneys general On states should push back just as hard as the left did on just about every executive order that President Trump signed. Every single one should be pushed back on. Uh, well, we we've developed a government where presidents think, And that is refers to the Marshall Blackburn 22 come minutes ago that presidents think they can govern simply because they have a pin and a phone. They could do it by executive order. That's not the way the country has been designed to run. If Biden wants stuff done, he should be having Congress legislated that stuff to be done, and he she had a bill on his desk and sign it. The idea of having a king simply take out his pen and say, Well, these peasants get to live and these are going to die. I kind of thought we were past that something where the Magna Carta begin to make that go away, But that's been I suppose a year to back another play anymore. There was another ruling yesterday. I think that ruling is important. But this one to me was was mind blowing on. That is a Virginia Board of elections rule, allowing officials to count ballots that arrive without a postmark of the three days after the election. Yes, a state judge. William L. Ridge ruled that was illegal. And he said again that this law violated state statute and permanently banned the law in the future. So you got Virginia? Now, I don't think the same thing would happen in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin. Arizona, Georgia. Now we have, you know a full one or going on three months after the election, we're finally getting judges to wake up and the courts to rule on the steel. It is. Where do you get a late dollar short?

Did the research on it. 81 total cases. 81 of those 45 Donald Trump was the plaintiff. Only I think three. He wasn't the defendant, do you? How many of those cases got an actual evidential evidentiary hearing before Judge Zero. Yeah, not a 10. So this this figure they threw out there. Oh, you've had 60 cases and they all got tossed in court. Yeah, well out of hearing So again. Don't tell me you got people like lockdown where he's saying that there's massive disinformation campaign you, sir, are the one that's spreading filth and propaganda about the election.

I thought we were supposed to be under one umbrella in the American umbrella, where we're all created equal, indivisible. Undivided under God. One nation, one people will know that's not the current administration. The whole idea of racial quote equity. This is not racial equality. This is racial equity. Kind of pushes us back to let's have different standards for different folks. Let's advance folks or not advance folks for the amount of pigment they have in their skin. Or whether enough they're born in this country. I mean, that's the direction in which received be going. Yeah, and what would president the illegitimate president said yesterday? And signing that racial equity order, I think is insulting. It is offensive to this country to Americans and all that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

"The Constitution is not a Document that gives US rights. The Constitution is a document that restricts the government from taking them. Just read how it's written. Hunger shall pass. No law infringing this. That or the other. The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed by the government. It tells the government how far can go on the government has become a tyranny. It's gone way farther than it never should have should have ever gone ever. That's a fact. Conservatives believe in conserving those rights. Those freedoms those liberties and our founding Judeo Christian values. You have to be Jewish or Christian. You could be anything you want in this country, but our value system is based. Is based on Judeo Christian values. We the 10 commandments are laws are based on it. We the Magna Carta mentions God all the time or laws are based on it. All The founding fathers were either deists. They believed in God, or they were Christian. That's a fact. The first holy Bibles were printed by and distributed by the House of Representatives in United States of America. These are facts. What do conservatives believe? And I'm not a Republican. I'm a conservative. Conservatives believe very simply. Go with the lowest taxes possible to fund a government that should be tiny. We believe in the lowest regulations possible while keeping some semblance of of peace and not allowing corporations to take advantage of us and so pollute the air of the ocean. You're following me. Regulation should be minuscule. They should exist, but very, very small. We believe that government should be out of our business. Government maybe can teach us how to fish. But don't give us a fish. We don't want government to make us reliant on them. We believe in a small amount of entitlements a small amount of welfare until people get back on their feet and go help themselves. We believe the charity and welfare should be done by the community, not by the government. When the government does they always screw it up and they always lose the money or keep the money or spend the money some other way. We believe that the baby should be born. It's rather simple. You don't kill somebody who has not been born. I don't I don't understand it. Be honest with you. We believe that we believe that this is a Judeo Christian country that is based on the value system that has morals and values and we have we have an upstanding community that follows those morals and standards. We also believe And freedom and liberty. And freedom and liberty comes from an untethered in ourselves from a government tyranny from an overwhelming, overwrought government that controls everything we do. Let's talk about liberals. Progressives more specifically and notice. I'm not saying Democrats, liberals and progressives. They believe in higher taxes somehow. Is going to make the economy better. What Large, expansive, liberally growing government. They believe in Cloward Piven, which is Bankrupting the government through entitlements. They believe in controlling you from great from from birth, cradle to grave. They believe that they're smarter than you should control you. Period. End of story. By the way. Conservatives also believe in fossil fuels because God gave us the fossil fuels to go and get and used for energy for heat for our cars and to get us from from here to there. Liberals believe Get rid of fracking get rid of fossil fuels get rid of gasoline get rid of gas powered cars. They also believe that a woman can kill the unborn child. Whenever the hell she feels like it, even to the point of birth. And believe me, the vast majority of abortions. What is it 98% something like that are not about incest, rape.

"Thomson she's in a movie called late night. It opens this weekend. She also took on a Hollywood titan who has fired for sexual harassment and then quickly got another job and late night. Thompson plays opposite Mindy Kaeling. She also wrote the movie Mindy Kaeling script was one of those strange things immediately, good upon first reading just great. She had a good idea. And she really knew how to bring in for you. That's a. Plus, she said, I wrote it for you. So of course, you haul things, anything God is going to be bad going to be bad, because it's not going away anytime soon being earnest and kind so luckily, I wasn't I was in a blazer with looked back here being incredibly mean most of the time journal, just had our second baby Taylor adorable. She takes to you. Thanks, so there's just a lot of expenses at home right now and I think it's time for a race. I see. This is actually very exciting to be really great because what you're describing is the most clear out example of the classic sexist argument for the advancement of men in the workplace you're asking for raise not because of any work related contribution. You've made but simply because you have a family, and that's why in the nineteen fifties family men were promoted over the women. They worked with never encountered is in such a clean teachable way. How would you describe Catharine Newbury? She is a late night host. She is successful. But maybe the future doesn't look as bright. Well, she's someone who was so driven right from a very early age. We did shoot a little bit of heart doing stand up in London. And when she was very young. And actually, we used my stand up from tally, the I did in nineteen forty five. I remember when forty six can't come on and. I remember so clearly that feeling of whenever I did stand up in my twenty s of being one of certainty. If not the only woman, then one of two amongst great load of men, who were often quite standoffish didn't clearly, expect anything view, so. Spoke to me on every level, we took that piece out because it just didn't help with the story actually in the end. But Mindy understands that, she understands what it's like to be the one who's different not only because of being a woman, but also being a person of color in a fuel the only one you're going to feel different, and that's not comfortable, a lot of the time, it just simply isn't comfortable, and we're not very honest about not. I don't think and she's only about it. She was a diversity higher. She's written about someone who was a diversity. I if that hadn't happened, maybe we wouldn't have this movie. So go, diversity reactively talked to the director of the film Nisha Ghana Tra and she talked about Catherine, as one of those women who came up in the entertainment business. When women were made to believe that other women were their adversaries, not their allies. They were sold this idea that there's only room at the table for one. And if you're here, then you better make sure nobody threatens your position here. And any other women coming up may have been seen as a threat to that position rather than adding to the workforce. And so I think what I love about this movie. Is it sort of breaks up myth? Yeah. I wonder if just women who had, I don't think of men is being enormously generous and warm, too young men, who coming up and might take their position. I think that it might be not only women but just the nature of the power structures that we have created. Do you know what I mean? Like I didn't think of, of blogs coming into writing room and everyone going. Hey, your great. You're a young thrusting blood, a guy like me. I can't wait to give you some extra airtime. I didn't think that happens with mine, iza. And I think that's a problem of power. Right. But I think there's something more to what Nisha sane. And that is that if you're a woman coming up that you are so aware of how limited the opportunities are obsolete that you start to see other women not as your peers. But as your. Arrivals, and that becomes an inch hawk sake. Talk sake. Absolutely. The, the conditions of power do not make it possible, especially for people who find it difficult to get into that position in the first place to be generous will be welcoming will be mentoring or want to help. Movie that you chose not to make. And this is the animated film luck that was at sky dance, which is David Ellison's company animation comedy, paramount and you decided not to make it because guy dance had hired John Lasseter has been fired from Pixar for the way that he treated women. And you wrote a letter that I have described on the air as the Magna Carta of the metoo movement, is one of the most beautiful eloquent, and well argued letters about this whole notion of the way women are treated the way men are forgiven that I found profound, and I hope you would share these two paragraphs with with us right now too. If a man has been touching women inappropriately for decades. Why would a woman want to work for him? If the only reason he's not touching them inappropriately now is that it says in his contract that he must behave professionally. If a man has made women his companies feel undivided and disrespected for decades. Why should the women at his new company think that any respect he shows them is anything other than an act that he's required to perform by his coach his therapist and his employment agreement. The message seems to be I am learning to feel respect for women. So please be patient, while I work on it. It's not easy. What motivated you to write it? What gave you the ability to write it. Very good questions. When I left the production, and then I wrote to Lindsey Durand about it, and in these one of the most brilliant, women, I know, said, Phil, can you talk to some women about this? I'd really be interested to know what's going on. And in fact, that letter is the work of many voices is not just my voice because those questions, very much came from those women. So the dots what's wonderful about it is that it is a collective voice, and I sent it to sky downs and didn't receive a reply, and because I showed it was quite a lot of people because of the issue, being very pressing, a lot of just as you go to publish it, and that was quite a big decision because it's just a public, but the. Vision turned out to be the right one because. Those with the questions that needed to be oft and to this date of not been onset in any way. I've had no response public or personal back from sky don's an dots very disappointing. Because they only way we're going to get anywhere with this own going issue is by talking to each other. It's not just a public thing to do its thing that potentially, and this is what has happened over the last couple of decades, that has kept women silent is they fear that they will be punished that they will be blackballed. They won't get parts that people will rise. They're absolutely really. Why were you able to I'm sixty on thought too old not to woke my own talk time is very much marching on. And because I had spoke to not before when the Weinstein thing blew up, and I've always spoken about this. I was young woman. I'm there was up -solutely, no choice really. And what was interesting to me in very touching was responses. I got from so many people male and female, who had done the same thing who would walk away and who don't have. Perhaps, don't feel as stoppage does I feel you know, I couldn't do other things. It's not going to kill my career even if sky don'ts, says, we're never going to work with you again, and we're going to tell every other animation, but I don't think that that would be possible now because the do feel that with the metoo time's up moving. There is a tipping point. But we do have to keep on, and on one of the ways in which I think we're going to have to do that. We got to talk to people before during, and after film shoots the thing, the clever thing about anybody who's going to bully. Is that they'll do it, not in front of someone who's going to say you can't do that? They'll do it in secret or in quiet or in private. And it's very difficult, for instance, for someone who's a runner, and who can be replaced in five minutes to say anything, bad about someone who will cost a lot of money to replace an all of these things. They have implications for everyone.
Emma Thompson drops out of Skydance film after John Lasseter hire
"When David Ellison hired Pixar co founder, John Lasseter in January two head Ellison's new sky dance innovation studio. The response was swift organizations such as time's up and women in innovation. Condemned the decision and many sky, dance employees were furious. Pixar and Disney forced Lassiter out of his job as its chief creative officer last June, and that was after female employees alleged Lassiter had groped them and created a frat house like work environment where women were excluded. When Lassiter came to sky dance. The studio was in production on a movie called luck. And among its actors was Emma Thompson, but Thompson left the project soon after Lassiter's hiring, and she detailed her reasons in a letter to sky dance that was published today in the LA times, Mary McNamara's culture columnist and critic at the paper she wrote the story about Thompson's letter and she explained. How the head of sky dance address concerns about Lassiter's hiring back in January David Ellison Sunday, a really long, and it was a little like defiant, Email, basically saying we've talked to John and he understands that some things some things that he has done in the past were not appropriate. He has, you know, been addressing those issues, and it is in his contract that he must behave professionally so nobody should be worried. I mean, the the absurdity of like someone being hired at this level of, you know, oversight overseeing this huge staff, or, you know, I'm sure a lot of money and having his boss having to point out that he is contractually obligated to behave professionally is just I mean, my hair just liked went on fire. It's like they don't understand. This isn't just about the specific instances that women. Have detailed which are bad enough. I'm not saying in any way, but it's about creating an atmosphere in which women were shut out. And just the fact that he would get a job again. So quickly basically sends a message to everyone in Hollywood. Which is like this is not a big deal. You know, it's a blip in the road. So when he comes to sky dance emission the studio is already in development or production on a movie called luck. And one of the voice actors in this film as an actress by the name of Amitav, sin and Thomson recently decides that she wants no part in this movie. So what does Emma Thompson decide that she's going to do and how she's going to make her decision? Well, my understanding is that as soon as Lassiter was hired Emma Thompson contacted her representatives and started talking about I gotta get out of this film. And that she did indeed leave on January twentieth. She withdrew from the film, and then she sent a letter to sky dance explaining why she had withdrawn from the film and asking all the questions that people have been. Asking which is like how you know. Why was the staff I mean, one of the things after Lassiter's hiring? And I don't know if you heard from people at guidance, but I did off the record people were very upset women and men were upset they didn't want to have to deal with this. They didn't know what it said about their company. And so that was one of the questions she raised. It's like, well, why is John Lasseter getting a second chance when no one who's going to be working for him was asked if they wanted to give him a chance, and she and she just lists a long number of questions that his hiring had raised. And finally said she wanted to make this movie she wanted to work with the director. But she just couldn't in good conscience lend her name to it. So she writes a letter that she shares with the LA times, and you publish, and I think this letter will go on to be the Magna Carta or the declaration of independence of the metoo movement. And here's what she writes in one passage. I'm going to quote, sky, dance employees who don't wanna give him John Lasseter. A second chance have to stay and be on. Uncomfortable or lose their jobs. Shouldn't it be John Lasseter who has to lose his job? If the employee's don't wanna give him a second chance there's lots to single out on this. I think that's remarkable. What did you also notice about what Emma Thompson had to say? Well, I just thought the fact that she said that people like me have to take the stand. And if we don't nothing is going to change we can talk about it. We can have tasks force. We can have PSA's, and we should do all that. But Hollywood runs on money and star power. And until the stars that make the money the stars that make the projects run until they're willing to go. I'm not going to do this. You know, I will not work for this, man. Because I believe that this was not a good higher. I believe that this makes too many people uncomfortable that it's too dangerous for too many people. You know, David Ellison isn't taking a chance John Lasseter is not going to sexually. Him. But who knows and who's going to be the first person like, you know, everybody's on eggshells. Anyway, like who's going to be the person that if something happens it's guidance who's going to speak up because it's the women who are targeted. They're not equal to the power of the man. That's the whole point there. There are people who don't feel like they have the kind of voice now, I think that that has changed a little bit. I hope it's changed a lot. And I think that seeing someone like Emma Thomson take this kind of stand and walk away from a project that she was excited about doing sends a really great message to everyone, including her peers, this is another tool in terms of fixing Hollywood is that the people who are in these positions. These A-List people you need to do more than make statements. They need to make statements with their feet. So what happens to a project like luck? We'll somebody else come in and take it over or will the movie fall apart and a lot of people who were going to work lose their jobs. I mean, there's no real easy ending to the store. Is there? No. And that's something that she also addresses in the letter is stars do have that kind of responsibility for a project that they're you know, they are one person. But there is cast and crew and people who may be this is their first big job, and nobody wants to take that away from people. And so I'm sure it was a difficult decision. Because I don't know they haven't announced a replacement. I don't know what female actor would step in to do that. I don't know what their choices are going to be. I don't know what how the director. They've been very quiet. Nobody has been commenting. I, you know, I don't know how the director feels about it. But this was a very big deal for them. This was one of two big animation films that we're going to sort of put scions animation on the map. And this is not a good way to start.
