"I don't think so either he was definitely a dough face. He was very pro southern. So yeah, I mean, you could argue that you had either Democrats or people who were very pro southern in office for the entire time, let's say from the end of John Quincy Adams presidency. Let's say from Jackson down through James Buchanan. And this time period because I'm still even confused. Democrat and Republican are the same thing. No, not exactly. So you had the Republicans were the party of Jefferson and Madison, right? And then as I said a minute ago, they're going to split after the election of 1824 into two wings. And at first they're not separate parties. They're just, you have the jacksonian Democrats who are, they're Jeffersonian, okay? So the people who are hardcore traditional Republicans who are true disciples of Thomas Jefferson being led by Andrew Jackson, they begin calling themselves the democratic Republicans, okay? The other wing, which was more like the Madison wing and the Monroe wing and the John Quincy Adams wing Henry Clay. Those are people that wanted a bigger government. They wanted a bigger military. They become known as the national Republicans, okay? With me so far, so you've got length. Okay, check. Two, two pieces, two parts of the Republican Party. But then they changed their names. And the Jackson wing just starts calling themselves the Democrats. And the other wing calls themselves the Whigs. So the Democratic Party comes out of the Republicans, the Jeffersonian Republicans, but you can't say the two are exactly the same. The Democrats are just one part of the Republicans. I hope that makes sense. So when we call these presidents after the 7 of the 11 presidents being bare Democrats, yeah, they're Democrats. So like, Andrew Jackson, when he ran in 1828, he was running as a member of the Democratic Party. Democratic Party, his opponent, John Quincy Adams. I don't think he called himself a wig at that point. I think he called himself a national Republican, but soon after that, the national Republican switched to the Whigs. Jackson was a Democrat, Martin Van Buren was a Democrat, then you had William Henry Harrison, who was a wig, but he dies, as you know, after one month and is succeeded by John Tyler who's technically a wig, but they kick him out because he's basically a Democrat at heart. Then you had James Polk, who was a Democrat. You had Taylor, who was a wig, fillmore, who was a wig. And then it's like two Democrats in a row, Franklin Pierce and Buchanan. So you had, again, you had Democrats or you had very pro southern wigs for the most part from 1828, all the way down to 1860. And there's no such thing as a modern Republican. They don't come in until 1850s. 1854, right, exactly. When the Whig Party dies after the 1852 election and wigs, northern wigs, plus some northern Democrats plus a few other people get together and form the Republican Party. It is confusing. So now we get to the best part, this is the final question on the essay.

"To listening to car talk on national public radio with us click and collect the tavern brothers. And we hear, of course, to answer your questions about cars and Kyrie pair, and anything else you want to talk about. I mean, we're willing to do you want to talk about we've already talked about geography. Get this now. Get this. This isn't the same letter you read early. I have a question for you. It's not about my car. The question I have is about something I heard you say one day as I listened on my local NPR station W SSU. The statement where is that? Let me ask you a Springfield of the like. The statement was in regard to the comma, which is placed between the city or town of village a wide place in the road and the state. I would stake my life that you said the comma does not belong there with the postal service's two letter abbreviations. Since you say it, I believe it. Isn't that great of Rosemarie Hutchins? But my family, Friends, Cole workers, and everyone else I know says I'm nuts. And what the two mechanics know about addresses anyway. Not much. However, provides me with something official that verifies what you said. Can you tell me where I can locate such a document? Well, I didn't believe you when you said you were the one that made this erroneous case. And I went and looked up in my 8th grade English book that I had the presence of mind to steal when I was in 8th grade. My warners English book. Excellent. Excellent. And and head to karma. It had the clone but because there were no zip codes at the time and they did not use the same two letter designations. You notice all the states have two letter capital letters. MA, AK. LA, they did not use those then. And Rosemarie, you go to your local post office. That's the only place you need to go and they will tell you the official way to address a letter and they will tell you it is Boston. No comma. That's it. Are we kidding? She said, because I said it. She believed it. And I think that's wonderful that she has such faith. Well, I'm not. Well, anyway, yeah, so now what? Well, I'm ready to take a call, but I just wanted to mention that this is normal to the time where we introduced a new puzzler. Going? But the puzzler is what? On vacation with Ken Rogers. Still lousy. This is wife. And also on vacation it is. But we're hoping that a little break will do the puzzle some good at it. It's done good for the puzzler in the past. It has. That's right. Every time when we think that we have no more puzzles, that there is nothing else puzzling in the world, and we should close down the patent office, our faithful listeners come through with two or three or three good puzzles. We try to stretch out for the whole year. Anyway, if you have a puzzle suggestion for us or our suggestion of any kind, we'd love to see it. We'd love to see it in writing. What if someone actually had an idea for a puzzle that they would like us to use? Well, then send it to the following address. Good. You ready? Yeah. Puzzle of tower. Yeah. Not as lousy as usual, puzzle division. Car talk Plaza, 6 30, Commonwealth avenue, Boston. Our fair city, no comma. Not good. Zero two two one 5. That's it. That's all I have to say. I was going to ask you a question. Three three two 9 two 8 hold on. Here's the question, here's the question. What if we had not four or 5, but three or four? Great puzzlers and the rest? Not non lousy. What would be the proper strategy for interspersing the great ones? I know the proper strategy. Would you start right out? I'm in September bingo with a real one whopper. So we can look forward to real garbage first. And that's what I've been doing for years. I have the strategy, don't worry. One 803 three two 9 two 8 7 hello your own car talk. This is Bjorn Johnson.

Actual rate in the very midst of Manhattan. That's right. Good for you. And having lived here since 1979, I have had to own an automobile. Really?

We have once again made contact with our leader mind. Love them. In all 50 states and the sugar come here to seek to terminate the presidency and maybe save her life. When tens of millions of women vote this year, fastest way to restore wall, then the percentage of the men who do so. End of quote. Repeat the line. This is the first use of a weapon of murder someone in Japan. He goes on and on, the guy's just America deserves better than this. Market deserves a lot better than this. And we deserve a lot better than the national education association. You know, for decades, decades. Landmark legal foundation has led the pack, led the way to investigating the national education association. I should now I was one of the lawyers doing it. So there are multiple complaints filed against the NEA with the Internal Revenue Service by landmark legal foundation for its use of tax exempt dollars for political purposes. And not just the national NEA, but the state of Philips. The NEA is a massive radical left Marxist Democrat party, political machine. That's what it's become. That's what it is. It doesn't protect the profession it destroys the profession, much like the so called journalist profession destroys the profession. It's not a perfection anymore. It's a bunch of reprobates. And so they have power, power has gone to their head, and their allegiances with the Democrat party. We talked about the Democrat party. Last week, earlier this week, I guess. And I spoke about how it was really founded by Martin Van Buren. And how it was founded in the audiology, not of americanism, not of American principles. But internal warfare. And that's what goes on here. The national education association has, in many ways, destroyed our public schools, is destroying our classrooms, and now they're aiming their wrecking ball at your children. And one of the most controversial plans of the NEA has. They're the foot soldiers for the Democrat party, as I've said many, many times. Is to remove the words mother and father from mothers and fathers and replace those terms with either birthing parent or non birthing parent.
The Culture of the Democrat Party

"Broadcasting from the underground command post. Deep in the bowels of a hidden bunker somewhere under the brick and steel of a nondescript building. We have once again made contact with our leader Mark. Love in. Hello American Mark Levin here, our number. 8 7 7 three 8 one three 8 one one 8 7 7 three 8 one three 8 one one, you know. There is some kind of a culture in this two party system, different cultures actually. The Democrat party has a culture of sorts and the Republican Party as a culture of sorts. Now the Democrat party, it is this growing Marx ideology class warfare. The use of any differences between human beings as a way to create support through anger and jealousy. And this is we talked about the other day is how the Democrat party was founded by Martin Van Buren. In the 1820s. And that culture has remained largely. Creating targets, entities to personally attack, but even more than that, there's another culture trash, but the cultural aspect and the Democrat party. And it is loyalty. I'm speaking in a general way, there are exceptions, but loyalty. You don't have people resigning from Biden's presidency. Or resigning from Obama's presidency. A resigning from Clinton's presidency. And so forth and so on. In writing scores of books, excoriating their former boss. Kiss and tell books, and yet there's plenty to kiss and tell about. They're abuses of the IRS. They're abuses of the FBI. Generally their abuses of power. There hasn't been a single negative book of any consequence written about Barack Obama. He was the perfect man. Nothing. Nothing. His staff isn't resigning and running about the fact that he's an incompetent or that he has mental issues or he only works four days a week and barely none of that. Nothing. They say the media are turning on Biden. They're not so much turning on Biden. Is they know that he is, he's a dead man walking politically. And then when the kind comes, they do not want him to run again. They want to push him out of the way and promote one of the out of the closet radicals. Who can put three sentences together? That is people who don't pretend to be monitored, but are way out there. But it's the culture of the Republican Party I want to address this evening. What is the culture? I have never seen so many disloyal people in any organization. Corporate, labor, clubs, associations, what have you? The Republican Party is filled. With so many. So many disloyal individuals, it's unbelievable. They write these books, if you're having served close to the president of the United States, in this case, I'll say Donald Trump. They leak, they, they, and grand eyes themselves, enrich themselves, they want to be celebrated by the people who have attacked their boss and the bosses have administration or the boss's office or what have you? And there's so many examples, I don't have enough time to cite them all. And it's an amazing thing. I watch this having served 8 years in the Reagan administration. Several years his chief of staff to attorney general meese. As deputy solicitor, the interior department, as associate director of presidential personnel, as principal deputy assistant secretary of elementary and secondary education. I never leaked against any of my bosses. I never wrote essays or books, anonymously or with my name against any of them. So now, for 40 years, I watched how these Republicans conduct themselves. You've had Chris Christie, you've had Bill Barr, you've had lesser lights like Stephanie Grisham, she's the press secretary of the president and also to the First Lady. And she's just out there slashing and burning. You see the loyalty in the Democrat party and you see the disloyalty in the Republican Party. It's shocking. So this culture apparently has been developed for some time in the Republican Party. Now, these individuals who conduct themselves this way lack character. They have had opportunities during the course of their careers. To step out when it really mattered. If they feel it really mattered.
"martin van buren" Discussed on This American President
"The script for this episode was written by Owen flanagan. Owen is a loyal listener of our podcast and we reached out to him to see if he was interested in writing the script. He is very fascinated by president George H. W. Bush. And originally in our Cold War series, we were thinking that we should end with president Reagan because he is the president that is so often considered the president who guided America at the end of the Cold War. And while that is true to a certain extent, history does show that it was president George H. W. Bush, who presided over the ultimate demise of the Soviet Union. And Owen brings a wealth of knowledge and information about that part of American history and world history. And so we are very pleased to present to you this episode about what happened during those critical years. And when we asked Owen to write about this, we are thinking mainly about president Bush's policies and his relationship with Mikhail Gorbachev. And as we researched it further, it became very clear that the decisions that were made during that time are decisions that profoundly impact the world that we have today. Especially with respect to German reunification and the expansion of NATO, German, Germany going into NATO at that time. Things that were not necessarily for ordained. And decisions that president Bush specifically made and decisions that are being talked about front and center right now in the situation in Ukraine after Russia has invaded the nation of Ukraine and many people often cite NATO expansion as one of the major reasons for why that has happened. And so in this episode, we talk about how that happened. What president George H. W. Bush's role was in that as well as Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. And at the time, we didn't know that those issues would be front and center, but here we are. So we hope that you enjoy this episode and it's a great opportunity to reflect on how we got to the situation we are at today. We hope you enjoy it. In our previous episodes, we covered president Ronald Reagan and his crusade against global communism. We covered how he became an unlikely catalyst for a new relationship with the Soviet Union. One marked by progress toward greater understanding between the two superpowers. It was, after all, under Reagan, that the United States and the Soviets signed the first treaty that reduced nuclear weapons. Reagan reshaped the global landscape, leading some to believe that the Cold War was ending. He left office one of the most popular presidents in American history. But on January 20th, 1989, his time on the global stage ended. On that day, he passed the mantle of global leadership to his vice president. George Herbert walker Bush it was the first time since 1836 that a sitting vice president was elected directly to the presidency when Martin Van Buren took over for Andrew Jackson. And it hasn't.
Larry Schweikart Discusses His New Book 'Dragonslayers'
"So you're the author of this new book, dragon slayers. So has Abraham Lincoln, Grover Cleveland, my man, Teddy Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump. So and thank you, police promote it. It's a very interesting take. It says, you basically 6 presidents and their war with the swamp. So the way we define the swamp on this program is the fourth branch of government, the deep state the unelected, right, kind of the German historicist model of infiltrating the constitutional order with the subversive suppressive group of people that are always trying to have their agenda implemented. How would you define it? Well, I like Bannon's definition, which is the administrative state. And it was started early on, it really starts with Martin Van Buren. One of the people in the president more than almost anybody else in history because a president that's right. He was the 8th president. Right. And as I said, he stepped on the stage just collapsed. Massive financial panic, the minute he became president. But he had created a spoil system to protect slavery. And this is why I try to insist to people, you know, the Democratic Party was created and founded and formed for one purpose only. And that was to protect and preserve slavery. That was the entire basis for which Van Buren and Andrew Jackson create the party. And to do so, they set up a system whereby loyalists to the party would be rewarded with jobs, but we called the spoil system or the administrative state because you got to put these guys somewhere. So you put them in bureaus and agencies and so on and so forth. And up until the time of the Civil War, this wasn't a very big deal because the Democrats more or less had total control of government for about 30 years. But then Lincoln gets elected and everything changes. Because now it's sort of like Trump, the wrong guys in charge of this giant apparatus that we built and could be a real threat with it. So I deal with Lincoln's war with the slave swamp, which was also known as the slave power conspiracy. And it was very real. It was a real group. And he was a genius in how he and the other Republicans of the day figured out, you know, slavery is not in a

them you'll win our prize any voice from our show you might choose on your voicemail Are you ready to go I'm ready Well let's do it then Your first quote is an official statement from The White House The president does not consider him a friend That was deputy press secretary Andrew Bates reassuring all fans of global tension that despite their virtual meeting this week President Biden does not consider the leader of what country to be a friend Well that would be China You're right Sam it's China President Biden and Xi Jinping of China had their first summit meeting this week And of course it was over Zoom You may wonder if world leader zoom is the same as the kind we use and it is except in addition to the leave meeting button there's one that says start war And yes the same things happen to them that happened to us you're muted mister president they almost had an international incident because she laughed at something serious Biden had said it turns out she was just looking at TikTok And this was so adorable At one point little Hunter Biden burst into the room behind the president To brag about selling another one of his paintings It's like not now hunter not now you know You know because of one of the mishaps Biden's nickname in China is now accidental antlers I mean the best thing about it being on Zoom is that after Biden says something either terribly awkward or racist you can just say there's been an issue with the connections Sorry about the it was convivial At one point in Xi Jinping referred to Biden as an old friend a statement which is 50% true There's two men do have a lot in common For example Xi Jinping just had himself declared a giant of Chinese history by his own government along with Mao and Biden just got his second best grandpa ever coffee mug Yeah and she owns a lot of Ming dynasty paraphernalia and Biden was there Exactly Good bunch of guys Good bunch of guys Him this is tricky So is it ageist if you're making fun of the president or is it just political I don't know We can say whatever I mean he's the president right It's fair game right Exactly I like to stay out of it for Peter's sake I respect my elders Yeah no you absolutely aren't allowed to make fun of me for being old Oh I'm so sorry Yes Now the problem for Biden politically was that both leaders had the summit was positive but The White House is concerned that Biden will be accused of coddling China So they actually put out a statement saying quote they are not friends right And China responded friends no lovers maybe All right Sam all right Sam here is your next quote This is huge It's what we've been looking towards for 20 years Now that was the CEO of a do it yourself repair shop called iFixit He was reacting to the news that Apple will finally allow you to fix your own what Your own iPhone Exactly your own iPhone Apple has announced they will now allow people to repair certain iPhones and they'll still be covered under warranty This replaces their prior policy which was any one who dares to open the sacred case will be declared pariah and outcast Seriously You have no idea how big a deal this is It's like the Mayo Clinic saying we can do your surgery or if you like here's a scalpel and a pint of ether go nuts Yeah it's not like we know how to do this and have just been waiting for the chance I can't prove this but I'm pretty sure Apple did this solely So my father can destroy his phone I mean I can't prove it If we succeed at fixing it do we also get paid Yeah why not I mean no the way it works is if you send a request to Apple they will

"The regime has fallen apart. In the Biden White House right now, you have 24 staffers talking to CNN to try and derail and disempower the vice president of the United States. But I will say this that Kamala Harris has done something Joe Biden has never done. Well, she's done a lot of things. But we're not going to get into that in this show, but her approval rating is 28%. Joe Biden's 36%. So there might be some people in The White House say, you know why we're so unpopular, it's Kamala Harris's fault. In some ways, she might serve as an internal scapegoat because remember. Within the philosophy and the psychology that the flask within the psychology of a Democrat is to always blame another. For once problems always. This is critical to the existence of a left winger. Or of a liberal or a Democrat or whatever you want to call it. Instead of saying, huh? Maybe we should have armed the Taliban. Maybe we shouldn't have kept the borders wide open. Maybe people are mad about inflation. No, no, no. The same way that Alexander Kazakh says blames other people for climate change for dissatisfaction and happiness, the same sort of way that BLM incorporated blames systemic racism for injustice. The same sort of way is that Democrats have the muscle memory. They are programmed. They are led to believe that the only appropriate way to deal with adversity is to blame other people. Men if you are going through something difficult. If you are going through something that is less than satisfactory, there must be a suppressive force to blame for

brilliant young foreign service officers and the most vivid love scenes ever co authored by a former Secretary of State Unless there's something that's been overlooked in the papers of Martin Van Buren state of terror is a new novel written by Louise penny the bestselling author And a newcomer to mystery writing named Hilary rodham Clinton they both joined us now Thank you both very much for being with us Thank you Scott It's a pleasure Louise penny you've written so many bestsellers been translated into 31 languages What made you take a chance on a novice co author Well you know she needs help You know she's so cocktails Yeah I just threw her a crumb Yeah yeah So secretary Clinton did you just spill a lot of classified information and you and Louise penny put it into a novel You know I would very careful as best I could be not to spill any classified information but I have to say Scott the impetus for the plot came finally one day when Louise said to me so what are the problems that kept you up at night And that just triggered my sharing with her you know some of the things that worried me the most still worried me today And among them is what we chose for the plot here the great fear that nuclear weapons would be obtained by terrorists Right That began us trying to figure out how would this happen and what would have to be done Well that's where having Hillary Clinton so deeply involved It makes all the difference And that's what separates I think Well there are many things I think that separate state of terror from your average political thriller I'm not the least of which is that it's written by two women of a certain age about women of a certain age There's a scene in which the world is minutes away from a potential nuclear catastrophe And a villain I may not need to explain says most of politics of so called democracy is an illusion Staged for the great unwashed Secretary Clinton did you ever hear anyone say anything like that in a meeting Absolutely We're hearing it right now Scott We are hearing it Much to my dismay from people who are in Republican politics They are office holders and states They are in conservative think tanks and they are saying in a many different ways that you know democracy is maybe not what it's cracked up to be because there are a lot of people who really shouldn't have the vote Who really don't deserve to have an equal voice to mine or to people like me And honestly this has been an argument from the very beginning but it's an argument that we kept overcoming We kept knocking down the barriers And now we have a concerted effort to basically rule by minority And I have said in many public settings over the last year what we see happening is to try to implement the lie behind the big steel which is the argument that the former president has enablers and supporters have made that if election doesn't turn out the way you want it to then you don't have to follow it And you have to set up a system so that it doesn't happen And their goal is not to lose an election again And they're going to try to get it set up So heads they win tails they win I got to tell you my favorite character Was unheeded to hear I'm glad I'm glad interesting Why is that State Department officer Clevelander She gets her coded message one day and doesn't quite understand it and I kept thinking you know this is like me getting a text message from our 18 year old There was something very human about somebody so brilliant going what does this mean Yeah that's exactly what we wanted Women who were flawed who aren't perfect characters not just women but in this case it happens to be women who don't burst through doors and with machine guns and either are they victims But they use their wits They use their smarts They have flaws They have doubts They have fears and insecurities But they are Intrepid They are determined They are underestimated but that doesn't stop them from trying to forge ahead and follow what their instincts and intelligence are telling them I have to say Scott you know never having written fiction but having read a lot of it over many many years I always was somewhat taken aback when I would read an author say something like you know I started writing and I was surprised where the characters took me And I would say well how could you be surprised You've created the characters but it was such a fascinating experience for me personally To just see the difference between nonfiction like oh my gosh another fact check how many more do I have to do Make sure it's right And this liberation that fiction provides but also the surprise that it can even offer the author See this is the thing isn't it with the first drafts in particular which can be something really soft and smelly And often has to be soft and smelly Yes Your French poodle daisy would understand what the she does indeed married Let's get the little green bag out for daisy's first round But that was the key too with working with Hillary is that I'd never worked with a co author And so it's very scary because you go down all these different roots and try things and this doesn't work and it's stupid and it's ridiculous idea in that character is doesn't really need to be there But it's all necessary They're all steps along the way and to work with someone with Hillary who can see that their steps And instead of saying oh no that just throwing it out Saying well yeah but what about this And what about that and building on it That was very powerful There is another arresting passage toward the end without giving anything away In which a character says to the president with our pull out the Taliban along with Al-Qaeda and other terrorists will take over all the progress made for human rights could be wiped out all the girls all the women Secretary Clinton was that you talking to President Biden It was me talking to anybody who would listen because I've been saying this for a long time that there was never going to be any good time for us to end our involvement in Afghanistan So whenever and however it happened we needed to be very aware of the consequences And yes there were many but in particular the two that are referenced one a renewed threat coming out of Afghanistan We're seeing right now Al-Qaeda never having separated from the Taliban which never rejected them We're seeing ISIS And the very real setbacks to the advances that occurred over the last 20 years in the book we have a former president who made the decision to pull out without a plan and what we have in the real world right now is a president the former president who made an agreement with the Taliban getting nothing for it which basically said to the Taliban okay here's the deal We're going to leave may 1st just don't kill us until we leave That was the deal Nothing about Al-Qaeda nothing about following the constitution nothing about protecting human rights nothing about anything So Biden comes in and he's confronted with an agreement by the United States government because that's what it was which put in a minute impossible.

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.

I can't look anything up because the computer in years broke I mean, what's worse if your computer was broken mind? Mine is worse. Because yours isn't see. No use your do you have to computers or what? I don't even know where there It was. You got all sorts, the one that you like. Run the show with is not the ones you look at the things up on the Internet. We have a broken computer. Normally when things they're broken on Monday. I blame these people. The slime balls who come in during the weekend, but apparently this got broke after Dad old auto show. Nobody knows. Well, it sounds to me like O'Donnell broke it, then, right? Oh, he wasn't here today. Where is he? Just somewhere? You get all that all the one person who actually takes presidents they off by choice rather than because they closed the business. I mean, it is President State. I am telling you, there is zero observance of President's Day in this country other than Department store's having a sale. I mean, you think of MLK Day and rightly we had all these people will go through the history of l okay, But you know what happened with, you know the history of Presidents Day, don't you? You think? Well, what? What is it? That's where we used to have two holidays. We used to have Lincoln's birthday and Washington's birthday and they turned them into what in part because we're adding these new holidays Also Uh, it was hard to justify for government to have two separate holidays just 10 days apart because Lincoln Day was the 12 that Washington Day was the 22nd. So we turned president stay into the third Monday. Of every month. But as a result of that, you end up with no real when you had Lincoln's birthday, even if it was barely acknowledges the holiday. And yet Washington's birthday that was somewhat acknowledged. This holiday. You at least separated the two of them a good focus on them with presidents. They wouldn't focus on anything. Nobody talks about like that. Nobody talks about Washington Plus by saying, president stay. I mean, for crying out loud you're throwing in there. You throw it in Reagan and Herbert Hoover and Martin Van Buren, for Heaven's sakes. So here you have. It is the holiday and nobody even knows what it's for it as they say, because half the country has simply repudiated everything that everything that America stands for. I mean, you've got left is the only president that they have acknowledged the existence of Is Obama. And as for Biden, they're not the right. Eddie left eastward. Google gaga about Joe Biden. They're just glad that they have power. Biden was the vehicle to give them their power. So getting back to the point that I was had Hope everybody's following all of this. There was this visceral reaction. Any representation of Trump. Now, as this pointed out during the impeachment hearings, all of the statements that Democrats leading Democrats, including members of Congress, made About what to do if you saw a trump supporter or Trump Cabinet official, Remember Maxine Waters get in their face, No peace this that and the other thing the people that were supposedly appalled because Donald Trump said. Other day at the protest that Washington D. C. Don't ever give up. Keep on fighting. She's came out a note and suggest that the people needed to be confronted. Perhaps even violently, was how strong the rhetoric was in many others, made the same comment. They never said that about W. Bush's people but with regard to trump there was this unbelievable. Anger that went beyond trump to the point of people who work for them. And I think that the greatest rage was reserved for people who not only supported Trump, but then would show it off by putting the bumper sticker on the yard wearing the cap, and so what? That part was a relatively new thing, and it's I think entirely connected to the fact that even after he's been voted out of office, where they got rid of them, they still feel the need to kick a police dog by doing the impeachment and here's the next thing is gonna happen. They're going to try to criminally charge him now after the fact and they're going to try to criminally charge it, but they'll look at the look at anything with the management of the hotel's anything. Anything. They can't let it go. And they will be fueled in their attempts to rip apart everything that America awas by knowing that it's going to bother the people who supported Donald Trump. They want to get back at us. They want us to feel pain. There is a loathing of us. And again. Why some of you? You keep asking. Why? Why don't you tell us? Well, I needed do this build up. This isn't the first time I made reference to this. Look, There's quotable up there. I mean, imagined. But there are lefties were angry at Donald Trump that there are global Oh, I mean, your look at this. You're staring right there with a serial killer. That's what he is. He's a serial killer. The fact that Republicans aren't willing to say that is a part of the problem that we're facing here in that the Democrats demonize people at our side. Well, we actually have a demon. On the other side. We could barely warm ourselves up enough. Fire away at them. Part of the answer here. Is that it's just true. The Democrats I think are willing to fight harder than Republicans. It's true. And when Republicans tried to fight It often gets turned all sideways. Like what happened in D. C a January 6. God. This.

"Gorman from I Heart radio with you on this President's Day and joining me now on the hotline. I have NBC news radio correspondent Rory O'Neill to talk about Presidents Day and the chief executive position in this country. Rory, Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us. We appreciate it. Hey, Good morning, right. So you've got some trivia on presidents Tell us about that. Well, I am on President's Day itself. You know it was 50 years ago, they law took effect that actually set up all these Monday holidays has called the uniformed Monday Holiday Act from 1971. And working together. It made Washington's birthday as well as Memorial Day. Labor Day Columbus Day all Monday holidays off all of it in an attempt to create three day weekends. Benefit the travel industry and federal employees. Which makes a lot of sense, because when you have that random day off on, say a Tuesday, not that we wouldn't welcome something like that. But the three day weekend, I think I think works pretty well. Yeah, For those people that get three day weekends, one of those again anyway. But they actually established Washington's birthday as a holiday in 18 85. But we call the president say now we sort of merged the two days for Lincoln's birthday and Washington's birthday. What's funny is in that uniform Monday Holiday Act they made in the third. Monday. February will always be George Washington's birthday. The celebration for the birthday. Four American presidents have been born in the month of February. But the way the calendar works. It will never fall on that third Monday of the month, so technically, we're not celebrating anybody's birthday today. It's really interesting when you go back and you look at the history how this holiday first started and how it has changed over the years, a celebration of George Washington and his birthday like you said then because Abraham Lincoln's birthday is in the month of February that gets tied in to it. And now people view it as like a celebration of all the presidents when that's really not what it was originally intended to be. Right, and some people are offended by that. Some states still celebrate Lincoln's birthday separately, like Illinois, for instance, the You know the land of Lincoln there, There was a movement to actually make Presidents day on the Fourth of March of the system March, Aziz said of the Constitution as the original inauguration Day. Buttons put them that just went nowhere and even after they moved operations in January, 20th So there's been lots of ideas in terms of what to do with Presidents Day, but it ended up staying in February and just moving to on Monday so we could have the three day weekend. This does seem to be O is a bit of a mystery, Is it? Why you with the impossible President apostrophe s presidents apostrophe? This does seem to be a day where there is a bit of reflection in terms of those who have have risen to the highest office in the land and have run the country. And obviously you look back and figure like George Washington because that's where the celebration came from, and someone like Abraham Lincoln because he was eventually tied into it. But in a lot of instances, some of the individuals that I've talked to over the past couple of days, historians When they're talking about Presidents Day. This is also a chance to look back at some presidents that maybe are receiving Maurel recognition now for the work they did then. Historically, they had gotten Right well, and that was actually some of the criticism for not having a president's Day, not just for the Overbrook ones, but maybe there's some that weren't so great. And we shouldn't really be celebrating them. I mean, William Henry Harrison in office for 30 days. Why do we, you know Why do we have to remember his 10 years President? Well, we need to remember it because again at this point, it's been proven to be a myth, but still, you don't want to do a two hour inaugural address and in bad weather. That's why I write that zone that we should remember. What are some of the What are some of the aspects of the holiday or past presidents that when you were taking a look at the president's day that you found interesting? Well, you know that we'll start off on the flip side of all this, too. It was on this date 1933 in Miami that they tried to assassinate FDR. That assassination attempt came between the time of the election, and between the time he was sworn in. It was during the transition and assassination attempt in Miami outdoors. They almost the assassin fired six shots managed to kill the mayor of Chicago. But FDR escaped on injured So imagine having a president assassinated between the time of the election. And before that person could take office s O. That happened on this date back in 1933 awesome at the favorite little bit of trivia I found during this was it Martin Van Buren was the first president born as a citizen of the United States. All the rest of them had been born as British subjects. All right right now. That's true and FT Art since you brought him up what's interesting about him and this was something that We talked about on a recent I have radio communities special that I host. What's interesting about him is the 1st 100 days. There's so much focus right now on Joe Biden's 1st 100 Days. Just like there was a lot of focus on Trump's 1st 100 days. And that really came about because of FDR and this flurry of activity at the start of his presidency to get things under control during the Great Depression. Right. Clearly, he had quite the agenda when he took office. You know 1933 So yeah, he had He had a lot going on. Is he as he entered office? And then one of the finally one of the things that I always find interesting about the presidency is is going back and looking at especially more of your modern day presidents what they ran on what they told Americans their priorities were and then what their legacy became, and in a lot of instances and perfect example of this would be George W. Bush. What he ran on a lot of domestic policies. But what it will be remembered for is foreign policy as a result of the September 11th attacks, and then the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and a lot of times it's it's those kinds of events that end up dictating what a presidency will become not so much the agenda that president went into office with Right. You know, you are a servant of history at this point where you know, you just have to deal with the cards that adults you and Obviously, even the administration that starting now is going in facing a pandemic and economic troubles and who knows what other X factor lays before the next four years?

"A great piece for uncovered. D C about America's Braveheart. A comparison by doctors market that I've not seen by anybody else, but I like the idea that will Wallace, the key figure in the movie Braveheart. If you haven't ready in the history of what happened in Scotland and what happened between the rebels, the the deplorables, the smelly Hillbillies, you know, or the people who go, as Obama won said, cling to their God and their guns and their religion disparagingly. Of course, he said it that way back in the day. That he's made this comparison and I thought it was an apple in we've been talking about parties, you know, Doctor. That's the concern I have, and I've pointed out to people might probably my second favorite country in the world is Israel and Israel has a couple of dozen parties and I'm not exaggerating. And I don't mean the little. You know, little tiny ones like we have here where there is an American Communist party and there is a green party, but they're all relatively inconsequential. So the big you know, the two big parties, Republican and Democrat and I've warned them. They say we should have a third party, I said, and then you'll have to make alliances to get any kind of majority in either legislatures with Congress and you'll hand off a lot of the power that is still held by but not often exercised by the people's representatives to the bureaucracy. That's the problem to begin with. Well, you're absolutely right. And of course, it's these countries that have proportional representation that usually end up in the worst shape like the Weimar Republic ends up giving Hitler power. Hitler never won a majority of the German boat, but the Nationalist Party at 8%. And they ended up forming an alliance with the Nazi party and you see the same thing in some of these other countries that they Israel's had one locked up government after another. They can't ever form a government to do anything because they got to always appeal to all these different parties. So I'm a big fan of the two party system. I understand it tends by nature to move both sides toward the middle. I get that. It doesn't work well for radical change. I get that that was you know, the founders had nothing to do with this. This is all set up a sigh. Discuss in Patriots history and some other book is all set up by Martin Van Buren in the 18 twenties for a good reason to keep the country from fragmenting over slavery. But his solution was disastrous in the long run, because it gave us a two party system and it created one party, the Democrats. Founded specifically to protect and preserve slavery, So you know it's it's touchy. It's a hard way to go. But I think inside out is how Republican conservatives have to go. Well and frankly, I would be proud. I don't think much of, say the Black Congressional Caucus because I don't think splinter group should be based on things like race, religion, that sort of thing. But if you base it on political philosophy, what's wrong with having within the Republican Party, a Patriot Party and allowing people to say Yes, I'm officially wreck a registered as a Republican to vote or for voting purposes in my state. But I identify as a patriot as part of the Patriot caucus in the same way that Congress had the Freedom Caucus of members of red, and that didn't work out too badly because they held enough votes to be able to swing the direction of the party away from establishment and back toward conservative principles, right Yep, totally agreed. Now what you are going to see though in the short run, and we're already seeing this in Arizona, for example, is a massive defections from the Republican Party. Um, just in the in the voter registration statistics. I've looked at here. In the last couple of months. There's been a huge defection from Republicans into independence or libertarian. And, uh, that is not, as the Democrats would want to think This is not a repudiation of Trump. It's exactly the opposite. It's a repudiation of the elites in the Republican Party saying to them Sorry, I'm not going to give you my money. I'm not gonna support your candidates. If you're not supporting what I believe in Also tell me this. How do we fix that is the fix to say to those Republicans who said I'm shutting my Republican identity, I'm gonna become an independent or libertarian or some other flavor. And then I will. I will not vote as a Republican a more now and I know those votes were still available to a candidate. Because these days to win you usually have to have Most of the people in your party base whether you're Democrat or Republican, plus a big chunk of those who identify his independent, but is that is that going to get us where we want to go is conservatives or would we be better to go back to the party? But say to the party? We want to see that the table for the Patriot Caucus and we're going to help drive the party in a slightly different direction than you're going right now, which which one is the right solution. I had a catch to talk with the Arizona chairwoman Kelli Ward about this and she was okay with people re registering as independents and so forth, Understanding that we will Appeal to them on the basis of certain candidates. So I get that, But I think we're already seeing, um, an awareness that there has been a ground shift. We need to sometime talk about what happened on January 6 because I think what I call that the flight of the squid pickles. And that, um, the elites were rattled. I'm telling you large, they were shaken to the core by the fact that smelly hillbillies whether they were antifa or patriots. I don't care. They didn't inform the Democrat leadership of what was happening, and those people were made to look like Craven cowards hiding under desks. Running away handing over their house toe. Ordinary people who do these people think they are. And I have heard on good authority that someone did A number two on Chuck Schumer's death. Oh, my God. Well, and you heard that. You hear your crazed them? Well, you heard crazy statements. Look, I don't agree with breaking into the building doing damage. And certainly not the guy carrying a bunch of zip cuffs as a zero. He's going to take a bunch of members of Congress either hostage or kidnap them or whatever. But AOC, who does represent a sizeable chunk of the left the far left and the Democrat Party was saying half of Congress faced imminent death and we've got the sound bite ever saying it and I thought No, I don't think it was anywhere near that bad. It was certainly wasn't something I I would support to break into a building to do damage to hurt people, too. You know, in one way or another, bring about about half a dozen deaths of people whether you want to call him responsible, but it wasn't half of Congress about to meet their maker..

"The any AC national monument and preserve gets the fewest visitors of any national park, and it boasts no rangers. No trails and no waiting in line. All the more reason Christopher Solomon went out of his way to hike a few summers ago. Chris, welcome great to be here. Is this actually a national park or what's the technicality they're. Technically Rick any act check national. Monument and preserve is its name and it. It is not a national park, but it is the least visited unit of the four hundred and one properties in the national park system, so nobody goes there white. Why do they even bother thinking of it? As part of the system you, you'd think that the least visited might be something like the Martin Van Buren national birthplace right, but no It's Antioch Chat in two. Thousand Twelve Anne check had nineteen visitors last year might have picked up to a hundred or so and you were there with how? How many people in your party three of us three of us now? Where is it and how do you get? There visualizes for me if you look at the map of Alaska Alaska? has this big tale that kind of frozen, fourteen hundred mile tail, that wags westward at come shotgun, and that's the Aleutian islands and the base of that tail is the Alaska Peninsula, and that's where any act check.

The National Monument, which is a gorgeous volcanic crater, so ease of access is not one of its selling points. Is it worth the trouble? Yeah, I was thinking about this on the drive over here and how to summarize it. I have had the good fortune to travel all over the world as a travel writer, I was with a photographer who shoots pictures all over. Over the world and beautiful places we agreed we'd never seen a place as unique as okay. How can you write in? Your article is just gorgeous about this that it was mind-bending. Lee Gorgeous is the desolation that's part of it, or what makes it better than just going to any national park, so maybe to convey what it's like I need to tell you just. Just a little bit about its geologic in human history, which is more interesting than it sounds about the time. The Egyptians were ruling the world. A seven thousand foot volcano blew its top with a with a force of ten thousand nuclear bombs ruined the bigger eruptions we we know of, and then the volcano collapsed on itself and created a crater that could swallow Manhattan. That crater filled with water, so it looked like crater lake national park, then that lake blew out in his biblical flood in over the next couple thousand years, this lost worlds was sort of created inside that crater, and it just went kind of unnoticed, except for the native peoples for thousands of years until nineteen thirty, when this man called the glacier priests arrived, and the Glacier priest was father, Bernard, how he's one of these Jesuit priests who was cut from the old cloth, swashbuckling sort of Jesuits, and he, he barnstorm all over the forty-ninth state, having these wild adventures by Bush plane. Plane by dog sled is write ups win the Saturday Evening Post and the National Geographic and in nineteen thirty, he wrote about visiting Antioch Check, and he described it as paradise found this this lost world where orchids bloomed in the volcanically warmed soil, and the rabbits were gigantic, and they came up and walked right up to his crew, which was a bunch of the Santa Clara football players, and and they felt bad killing them to eat them, but they did anyway. Did you read his writing the in preparation for your trip so I? Did I read about his writings about the great? Great Moon Crater of the earth called it, and then what happened is he wanted to go back the next year nineteen, thirty one and any act check blew up again, and he goes back and talks about it no longer in these Milton, s Kinda paradise found terms, but but in this dante-esque hellish terms describes himself peering into this blackened inferno, and then they go into the crater a couple months after it's blown up again, and they nearly die of poisonous gasses, and they're, and they're put their beans on a funeral and their beans Boileau, and they shove a thermometer in the ground. Ground thermometer explodes, and it's just this hellish wild landscape. That's the setting we go back eight years later.
