"Today. We're taking a look at a quotes from Benjamin Lefty Ruggiero. Ruggiero was a notorious thug and is thought to have murdered twenty six people during his thirty years working for the New York via with reputation as a loyal soldier for the banana family. It's hardly shocking. That he wants said a little violence never heard anyone. This catchy Zinger is attributed to reject Rogelio in the memoirs of former FBI agent. Joseph pistone. Who spent time in deep cover with the mafia hosing as a jewel thief named Donnie Brasco? Pistone had convinced Ribero to bring him into the banana crime family. Soon after they met in the early nineteen seventy s. Ruggieri's relationship with the man he knew as Donnie BRASCO began to blur the lines. Between professional and personal to lefty Rasco was a close friend. And protege someone. He could pass on his wealth of racketeering experience to Roscoe run the bookmaking business and he often dined at rose home with his family. In the Mafia the divide between friend and colleague is inherently muddy to bring a new member into the family is to vouch for them by opening the door to the banana organization. Lefty had staked his life on brass goes loyalty. Which means that if things went sideways both of their lives would be forfeit. A career spent dealing in these life and death. Absolutes may have walked reg- aero's comprehension of violence to him. Aggression was a form of currency something to be bonded and sold and as a racketeer. Bloodshed was a key part of the business model without the threat of violence. His Marx would have less incentive to open their wallets. Of course those threats had to have true weight behind them which is where. Aero's reputation came into play during his criminal career. He murdered twenty-six people either to serve his own interests or those of the people paying him when the occasion called for it he reached for his two pistols one for each hand. Earning him his other nickname to guns. According to pistone regierung may have had a reputation as a killer but in his everyday life he didn't often resort to violence to him. It seemed bloodshed was a business transaction. And if that upset You well. That wasn't his problem. What was his problem was Donnie BRASCO agent? Stones initial assignment was a six month. Sting to gather information about truck hijacking but eventually it grew into almost five years of working undercover gathering Intel on Jero and his associates in the banana family when his superiors finally ordered an end to the operation. In July of Nineteen eighty-one they visited the head of the crew. Sonny black in person to tell him the truth about brass goes identity for the mistake of allowing an FBI agent to infiltrate the Mafia sonny black was murdered and had his hands cut off by his fellow mobsters. It was a fate that was meant to await lefty Jero as well but he was arrested and held in custody by the FBI for his own protection and for the protection of their undercover agent at reject rose trial prosecutors revealed that he had made a concerted effort to find and kill agent pistone wants his betrayal was revealed but he never got the chance. The evidence pistone had collected led to over one hundred convictions including Gyros ironically for a man whose business was governed by murder kindness to someone. He took a friend had been his undoing in the end regierung might not have seen the in little violence but he certainly felt the painful sting of betrayal.

Democrats pummel Bernie Sanders on communism
"You so much to talk about here we go into the South Carolina debate with Biden over the last couple of days really picking up steam now Bloomberg not part of South Carolina but if you look at the polls for super Tuesday right now in the national polls remember going in the opposite direction that he probably wished to go in so Biden leading South Carolina right now but in other states like California you have you've got Sanders taking a huge lead so it'll be interesting to see what happens over the next couple of days and if a buying does pick up any momentum in any of the other states when we come to Saturday but I think you know just looking at the debate the other night and just looking at really Bernie Sanders the last couple of days we were we'd really is and seeing the reaction will have more reaction coming up from Democrats here we really do live in amazing times don't you think we live in amazing times I mean I never thought and I'm still shaking my head yesterday as I was talking to a couple of people including my dad and I said and and I said this on the air last night welcome but it still holds water today I really can't believe that you had a democratic debate and the Democrats are now discussing right now will the legitimacy of somebody who was a communist sympathizer weather sympathizing for a dictatorial communist regime it is something that's good or bad I did suggest to me it's the most mind boggling thing and the one question the the one thing to me that is invented enough is what does the mainstream Democrat thank what are Democrats think about this that's one of the things because they go out may vote older Democrats vote just like older Republicans vote but what do they think you know I go back to my late uncle if he was alive would be in his believe late seventies right now and you know he union guy voted Democrat more of a social conservative though probably would call them a blue dog Democrat but I just I wonder what they think and I can't get a handle on it Democrats are quiet all my Democrat friends quiet I'm on social media just quiet yeah I was listening to a a appointments from talk radio from I'll see if I can find the quote ahead at the end of yesterday I don't know if it's still around today it's got to be somewhere but an old acquaintance liberal talk show host who was a fox news contributor Leslie Marshall you cannot get more liberal than she is we see each other she used to be a talk show host in buffalo word that's how I got you know to know her you know going back what twenty five years ago maybe maybe close to thirty years ago and I cheered talk radio conventions and all that's when we're quite well and extremely liberal stream liberal well she was just going crazy about Bernie Sanders on fox news that goes via to me yesterday the day before about Cuba just going crazy absolutely crazy and I think about her I think about other Democrats are just going this this is just unbelievable you we've you've taken it too Sanders has taken it to a level that has not existed before in the Democrat party or any major party in my lifetime it what it's not even about should we have a bigger social welfare program it's not even about that anymore the debate that the Democrats have had for the last week is because birdies out there all the time saying we need to talk about the positive communist dictatorships was we said that's ridiculous that's like saying well okay you know Kim Jong moon they got full employment yeah sounds insane doesn't it because it is and I just I shake my head and I do understand the Democrat establishment going home my god you've got to be kidding me haha how did we get to this point we got to this point because you've been promoting socialist ideas for the longest time you've been watering and fertilizing it all throughout college campuses for the last couple of decades what did you expect was going to happen this is what you get you get somebody who was a lifelong communist not running as a communist now running as a social Democrat but as you can see from Bernie Sanders he's a lifelong Marxist twenty is that's not over the top rhetoric that's not even Republican talking points maybe it is now after it became a huge democratic talking point and this guy's a lifelong Marx's communist that's what he is he may not be running as he may be trying to run away from it now this is is running to the middle but he just can't stop that instinct that he has as a Marxist where he's got to in his mind remote the fact not a just a bigger social welfare program but you gotta understand there's a lot of good that comes from communism even in a dictatorship a dictatorial communist nation there is still some good that comes from it to the life of me what is the mainstream democratic thinking about this right now what's in their mind set we got just one bit of correspondence yesterday from a Bernie Sanders supporter sane well you know Bernie isn't that bad he's not as scary as he seems I would walk out with your job then you you understand the point that the imagery that he's giving out is scary but he's not as scary as he seems we did get an explanation as to why he's not as scary as he seems what do you even recognize the fact that yeah okay it seems as if he's complimenting eight you know and trying to find the good in a not just eight not just a socialist society or a communist one party society but a communist society that's run but that was run by a dictator and I just wonder what the mainstream Democrat the you know it in the flyover state thinks about that and even the mainstream Democrat who may not live in flyover territory who might not be what they used to call a blue dot org dog Democrat what are they thinking that to me is the great unknown if Sanders ends up being the nominee what are they thinking at that point you know I was kidding but I wasn't yesterday when I was saying but a ton of Bernie Sanders supporters I know we've talked to the many many times not as much this cycle but in twenty sixteen but we talk to them all the time on the show they would call constantly and we try to find out you know what is what is their particular mindset and back then it was basically I want my college paid for because a lot of the Bernie Sanders people to call the show back then were younger and that's what was going on in twenty sixteen that was the big thing coming out of occupy Wall Street a few years earlier that that's the one thing that stock was colleges are lying to us and colleges are telling us that if we take this particular course for this would graduate with this particular degree we'll be able to find a job we can't find a job the college's lied to us so we need to bankrupt the banks did make any sense but that that was a narrative somebody has to pay our bill we shouldn't have to pay our bill well maybe you should do a lawsuit against the university and see if you could win that why does the taxpayer have to be responsible for the transaction that you were involved in and most of them would say well because it's hard and we just can't afford to do it but it really didn't go much past that but now Sanders is taking it to another level it's not just the billionaires are bad and somehow inherently evil and you are a victim if you're a young person and you can't make it today unless the federal government gives you cash it's gone way beyond that now to the point of complementing and looking at the bright side of a communist
"marx" Discussed on Sodajerker On Songwriting
"Of what to say to me. So many people tried to be of comfort to me but he just sorta knew what to say and we had several really really long conversations. That were really helpful to me. That helped and we were great friends. Obviously but he was just wise in that way and he you know he had lost his father when he was twelve or something so it made total sense to him. He's like if I'm GonNa read about my father. I'm going to read it with Richard so I I'm just so grateful that I got that phone call But yeah and then through my veins that you mentioned is I don't know if it's my favorite song written but it's in the top three TOA. It's definitely a song that I would put an a time capsule as some of my best work. I think and again one of those songs. I couldn't keep up with once. I confronted. Okay I'm going to write about this. By ran from it for several years because the the emotion of it in the weight of it was too much for me to really deal with and then when it happened to thirty in the morning. I was cleaning up my studio and I was getting me to go to bed and then I just sat at the piano and the next thing you forty minutes later. That's almost done and I couldn't be more proud of now as well. You should be really. It's a beautiful song and I mean for us. We both lost our dads in recent years. So I'm sorry it really hits home with us you know. Yeah there's also very little written word about the father son dynamic. There's I think that there are quite a few books from my research is quite a few books about mothers and daughters. There's not a lot that's been written and studied about that dynamic between a father and a son and those relationships can be really complex and complicated mine was not mine was just love and like he was my best friend on top of everything else so. I still wrestle with it sometimes. and it's been twenty years but twenty three years actually but that makes it may be a little bit more difficult to write about. Because you don't have a lot of source material you know you gotta just feel it and write it. Absolutely one of the other ones is leaving years. The living years is It's a much bigger theme than just father son and losing your father but that verse always killed me. You know about his father. So yeah. There's some songs out there that really say well Richard. We catch you just about long enough. I think well it's been a pleasure guys. Thanks so much few times which is all right. Guys Take Care.

Made US change our way of living overnight but turned our resources are machines our whole nation into one vast awesome producing more and more weapons of war instead of the old materials by the end of the war the ABC employed over two thousand people making movies over half of them civilians. All this work even brought new film techniques like multiple angles shooting and change film in even more momentous ways for five years American audience. It has been seeing newsreels. And it's someone you know. A movie maker said well you couldn't you couldn't bring in the enemy for for production meeting you know before. The battle and people went out with sixteen millimeter cameras. And these lightweight cameras that could go everywhere. They saw actual action after the war audiences and creators had developed a taste for this more realistic filmmaking. There was an appetite. For a new kind of filmmaking. That would be used more available light less contrived cinematography be shot with faster. Granier film be more shot on location and feel more like a took place in real place and not this kind of fabricated construct and be more adult this desire for realism meant the glossy representations of New York. That Hollywood made before the war wouldn't do director is like Ilya. Kazan felt their stories needed New York locations and New York talent. You don't understand I coulda had class. Gerber contamination could have been somebody by the MID FIFTIES NEW YORK. Filmmakers were more than just contenders. The Oscar wins for on the waterfront in nineteen fifty five and Mardi fifty six affirm. That excellence could come from outside. Hollywood New York is setting is capable of whatever mood or dramatic statement? You WanNa make architecturally in its light for talk about winter light as Mr Bergman did. New York's winter light image. That Sidney Lumet in the documentary film titled by Sidney Lumet. He grew up on the lower east side in nineteen fifty seven. He went from directing theater and TV. Two movies with twelve angry men. You're asking us to believe that somebody else did the stabbing with exactly the same kind of knife. Larger a million or one go onto make more New York classics like Serpico Dog Day afternoon and network. He died in twenty eleven. I'm not comfortable anyplace but New York when I leave New York for any other place in the United States My nose starts to bleed. Filmmakers at this time took full advantage of New York locations for their exterior shooting. When they needed a controlled indoor set they may do with whatever studios were available. Tv Or old movie studios the old Bronx by graph for example operated as a rental studio under different names until the seventy s the Astoria Studios. Meanwhile were still occupied by the army. There was some leftover stages from the twenty s and they reuse them and Sidney Lumet told me amazing stories of going onto these studios which he was in an editing room up in the Bronx. That had been Edison's old editing suite with an e draw you know kind of worked into the curtains E for Edison. These were the oldest movie studios in the world and they were using them in the nineteen fifties to make all those great early in mid fifty s movies like Twelve angry men and on the waterfront the city eventually recognized how vital New York and the screener to each other in nineteen sixty six mayor. John established the first mayor's film office in the world to lower hurdles to filming their Lindsay's film office streamline the permitting process and removed a lot of red tape for shooting in the city he even dedicated a police. Unit to location shoots then in nineteen seventy. The army moved production to different site and turned the Astoria property over to the federal government. This was not simply a movement of some soldiers because most of the people making the films were grips carpenters electricians and actress who were part of. New York's commercial motion picture industry so they were not at all happy when this plug got pulled in Astoria. The complex sat abandoned. For years unprotected and open vandals people would go in there. Rip The copper out of the walls and those people with a purpose then they were also just people in there for mischief terrible condition in the meantime you have this eyesore at the edge of a residential communities have halfway between the area and Long Island city. It's just getting worse and worse and worse. They abandoned cars dropped all around weeds growing through the sidewalk. I remember this very clearly. The film unions local community and the city got together to preserve the studio site. Save film jobs and clean up the neighborhood in nineteen seventy seven. They formed the nonprofit a story of Motion Picture and Television Center Foundation. They managed to prevent the studio from being sold off or turn down by getting the site on the National Register of historic places a process that normally took years.

Or what a grabber. Yeah which is also to find you. Welcome at all right. I'll have you know I still at fifty six years old have underwear throng stages just now. They're depends hands boy. You and Tom Jones and you probably heard as much as he does. I just since did you brought your success in the eighty s I to give you Baxter and Jimmy Pardo and Richard Marx. I discovered you first when you did. Backups on Chicago's seventeen. And you you donny. Osmond that's my question when you do that sort of thing when you're recession guy. Doing backup vocals. Do they bring you in at the same time do you do. Do you lay down on your track separately that let's talk about music delayed on your tracks. This didn't work for you. Well the last time you talked about museum how. How does that work when you're when you're when you donate together? I guess yeah I mean look for the most part being a background vocal session singer which is what I was for a few years. Here's while I was trying to get a record deal So I sang on Madonna. RECOR MADONNA RECORD AND WHITNEY HOUSTON. And and you're you're Whitney's biggest hits slick you're right. Aren't you know but I'm on that album I But I'm on some blinds biggest. Kenny Rogers Guy Sang for a lot of different people. And what happens. Is that the only way to really do background. Vocals is once. The lead vocal has been finished and completed in his put together in his perfect. So then you come in and you harmonize and you do you do parts around that. So Mo Ninety nine percent of the time. The artists wasn't even there. It was just me the in the producer and and sometimes I would be with a group of singers but that day was I I actually wrote I was sort in the Chicago Band camp at that time and I was I wrote a song with Robert Lamm For nothing which ultimately didn't didn't make the album but it was on the USA for Africa. Later it was okay But I you know hung out with with him a lot and I knew Peter and And so I was just at the studio Wedneday and I had become friends with donny. Osmond at that time Who was trying to get something going of his own own and we just? We think it's that we went to lunch together and we stopped by the studio which down the street in right near here like a COUPLA couple blocks from here and it was a studio. That's no longer. They're caught the lighthouse dining just kind of popped our heads in like hang out and the producer. David Foster went. Hey we need back on both as Richard dining perfect. That's perfect and so they just changed. They switch gears completely. They put the real. That's all we can stop the hurt. And and we went out and learned the part and Donny and I sang it like Stan right next to each other it was cool. It literally just walked by after lunch. Yeah creators I mean. They probably would've called me because I was working on the record But it was so. It's such perfect timing that you know. Oh Shit Richard Donner here. Let's get him on the record. That's that's a great song that's A. That's a really good song but a lot of good stuff on that record that's a very good record And it's so weird because as a as a session in kid of nineteen I think and then in the last year maybe like six months ago here. I am doing a show in somewhere in northern California with Peter and a sort of like giving each other a big hug. Yeah all these years later like it's such a family. It's such a commute that you know the music. The music community is such a we. We never hang out. There's very few of us that there's very few singers who are friends And I don't think it's just a competition thing I think it's just the nature of we're all like we were saying we're all kind of loners weird and But I really liked Peter and it was great to see. Am and we shared a stage together was awesome. That's great show. Did you say students come out. And we didn't collaborate on that one but we've talked about it. I would totally do a a run of shows with Peter where we would take turns and I mentioned this to met the other day. That Peterson suspiciously quiet on his website. He has not posted anything new in over a year. Really really and smart man is he. Is He okay. I'm sure he's fine. Okay I think he's fine we would. We would have heard something lewd. We've from what I remember when I know about him He lives a quiet life He splits his time between Idaho. I think in Nashville outdoors guy. Like guys like Peter who admire because of the amount of Fox. He does not give like he really doesn't give a fuck. Yeah he's like like he just wants to do is like yeah. I'll do those. I'll do sixteen gigs this year. And you the rest you can all fuck yourself you know. I'm just going to be skiing and like having coffee and then I I really admire that. I'm not that way. I really love to work. It needs to be on the state you enjoy even though realistically you could just be done so you wanted to be Like I said I love it more now than ever and I think that some of those guys do it just because they have to do a certain monarchy exent. Peter does need need any money either. But it's just keeping yourself out there you know Did you see your fifty seven or fifty six sixty six so and your oldest son is thirty right. He'll be thirty years. Yeah I mean you had these kids young young you were still. I mean you had success. You had the streak of number one hits and stuff so he ever established but at the same time. That's a young age to have kids. It's and still try to be a Tory musician. Yeah it was. It was a juggle that I I feel like all three of my sons would say that I did a pretty good job in that It's it was a weird life to have at that time because when brandon my oldest was born. Who's born in nineteen ninety? You right at the end of the the big tour ever did at least Alma ever had and and then I was like gearing up for the third album which which was very intense in terms of like I. You know I've got to come back. And and we had great success with that record too but it but it was this weird thing of like living in the studio but also having having a baby at home and and wanting to. I didn't want to be Uncle Daddy. You know I wanted to be a real presence in all and I ended up being that you know. I think I juggle juggle pretty well so I I didn't sleep at all because I wanted to be up to take him to. When they started going to school I would be up in the morning? I'll take him to school and then I'd be in the studio all all day and they would wander down to the studio. I had built a studio in my house in Chicago at the time and they would wander down after school and check out what was going on and now they're all musicians now. They're they're all. was that right yeah. They're all singer. Songwriter Musician Brandon. Sings on your most. Recent helped write the current album over the last one. He Sang Sung on a couple of them. But the new album My Middle Son Lucas He's not singing. He Co wrote two songs with me. Produced three wow. He's a HE'S A. They're all amazingly talented. But Lucas is that he's he and I are more aligned musically My youngest son Jesse's just turned twenty. Six six is a total Rakai. Like hard rock. He makes lamb of God. Sound like me but it's super melodic. Actually he's really talented and Amazing Guitar Player. My eldest son Brandon is look into hip hop and EDM and electronic music One of the greatest singers ever heard my life is my oldest son. Even his two younger brothers would say Brennan's a motherfucker but he doesn't really sing that much he's a more. Dj -ING in producer. And stuff like that. But Lucas and I started and we wrote together for this album and I'm just such a fan of what he does. You can imagine how how happy and proud route. I am and of course that I get to work with them and he's a man. You're dudes we there. My three favorite drinking buddies. You spend a lot of time with them then. Yeah that UH yeah we hang out all the time. We're really great friends. Do they live here. They all live here in fact my I'm GonNa Right from here. I'm going to go have coffee with Lucas He lives five minutes from here. Jesse lives in studio city and brand. Losing van is other all. They're all right here and we you know they. We live in Malibu.

She's there pal. How you know So it's syrupy sweet. Good Yeah Right now what you stayed in Chicago as long as you did like to raise the kids. Yeah that was a big part of it and then once that back or did you always have a place here as well. No no we we left. La To raise the kids in Chicago. in Lake Bluff. If you can call that northerns northern suburb. Yeah Yeah and I'm glad we did. I think they're glad that we did. But then at a certain point even day started to realized that they were living in a bubble. They were living in this. Like you know idyllic I called it may bury the the town we lose so small But forty eighty minutes later. You're in Chicago I I wouldn't have done it differently. I grew up in highland park not too far from where I raised my kids and now even I feel like I have no connection Chicago. Isn't that weird. I kind of feel the same way like I feel like a California boy. Yeah I we really feel like a California guy like when I go back to Chicago idol. How the fuck did I live here? It's weird right. Yeah there are a lot of a lot of things about the living Chicago that I hated and could never do again There are things about it that are great. Obviously great city in the ways that it's great but I I really feel like this is my home. I one of my friends are here. My family my dad and brother is still. I've got some cousins back there as well but stepbrothers. Ed Thought I should go back there. I haven't nobody nobody back then. My mom lives here.

So get your finances. Don't screw this up Richard Marx's here he's taken time away like I said from fighting with the mega guys on twitter And then you're doing something you when Richard Rick Rick Springfield do some stuff together right. I was telling these guys before and if I'm not mistaken he just is something for Australia where people donated X.. Amount of money. You would do something special for them beyond. Are you still doing that well. It started with Because I've been to Australia about fifteen or sixteen times now and I. It's really sort of like a second in home to me. I've spent so much time there. Net just touring but I've actually hung out there for PR- pretty good chunks of time. I love the people there. I'm just I have a great affection for that country and seeing the devastation has just been heartbreaking you know and so I I don't know if you saw it on twitter there was this Model well who was for a donation of ten dollars or twenty dollars. Whatever it was she would send them nude selfies? She's a nude model and and she raised like a shit ton of money. Really and I thought it was brilliant. I thought it was awesome and so I just picks so. Yeah exactly well. I don't do comedy so so my idea was to I went on instagram and So anybody that donate one hundred dollars donated. I did it for like five or six days. Anybody that donated one hundred dollars or more would send a picture of their receipt and I would send them through instant message. Just thank you video greeting you know by name. Hey Karen thank you so much Blah Blah Blah Blah and we raised about twenty rant. That's great yeah. It was awesome and in the middle of that Rick Springfield and I've been friends forever and we we have to work together quite a bit over the last couple of years and He thought it was awesome. Awesome and he's Australia and he's he's originally from Australia so he came over to my. I said I got another idea. Come over to my house and for five hundred dollars or more. We'll send people a video that we made of us doing Beatles Song All my loving in my living room so my wife filmed it on my phone and it's actually really really pretty cool and so that was another five grand six grand something like that so then his ideas. We're GONNA do a thing. Stage it tomorrow This election Alexa lie last Thursday. So we're doing this thing which stage it is A. It's a lot of young sort of struggling singer. SONGWRITERS writers do it and they get the. They're on. They can do it from their laptop and just an Acoustic Guitar Piano whatever and you perform for however long and you get donations and it it. Some musicians make some money from that you know but I've also seen some established artists use it for charity. So that's what ricks idea was. So he and I are are GonNa just spend like an hour or two in each other. Saw What we do when we perform live so when you guys do what. It's the The Richard and Rick Show you guys call it the Dick Square tour okay eh claim. You don't do comedy. Hey speaking what. I'm going to challenge you on that you. Two things have happened in social media in the past few months That have made me laugh. One was amy me Sedaris. Posted the photo. Did you see this photo of something. SORTA grocery store and Said said And the post was I now have a new way to leave a room and it was. The product was stay fresh cheese cheese bags Stay fresh cheese bag laugh about that every day. And then something you said makes me laugh after almost every day About in two thousand twenty you have a new way. You're gonNA answer the phone. Do you remember what it was. Oh yeah go go for Dick over those two things exhibit like running everywhere. He goes to yes so so rick and I started doing these shows together and And so we would come together and then I would do a sad of an hour and then he would do us admiral and then we close together so when it was my turn to be up I essentially I I would say welcome to the Dick Square to earn and then I would say and you know this is just me but when there are two Dixon involved I always want to be the first Dick. Yes that's just me right. I want to be the second day Yeah he's a great guy and I think you started to ask me questions you kind kind of answered it. About how that format is. You're not out there at the same time together but when you do the right. Essentially it's two separate shows. What what about when you do this stuff with I'm going to say match and that's wrong scandal mess scandal. That's totally different. Matt Scandal is the lead singer of vertical horizon. And he's Mike like my brother and So we started doing shows years ago. just we call ourselves duo and it was a similar kind of like when Rick and I are on stage together gather. It's a similar thing. We do one of my songs together. We WanNa hit songs together at but with me and and Matt it's an it's the whole show is we take turns so we opened with one of my songs songs and he plays and sings harmony and then we do. Vertical Horizon Song. I sing and play. I'm placing harmony and I'm just such a huge huge fan. One of Matt's work and I was a big vertical horizon fan before I met him But he and then we ended up writing a ton of songs together and had great success to go. We haven't done that duo sean. A long time but so so what we're looking to do this year. Actually is touring so much. I'm leaving a week but I'm going to do a tour later in the fall where I think it'll be that Matt will come an open acoustically and play in the band with me. That'll be really early fun. You'll have to have like horizon as well. I did a thing for each one. Years ago. Called the The list And Matt was the home of the episodes And if anybody because we have guitar good yeah anybody. Listening is puzzled. Matt.

Are the Democrats ready for Bernie Sanders to get the 2020 presidential nomination?
"The news in the Senate well is that the Democrats are on repeat repeat repeat so we're going to move past that waiting for Mr step alone Mister Sekulow and the team from the White House to win our attention with succinct remarks about the foolishness of this whole exercise that is draining the nation's attention at the same time it is slowing the business at hand of reelecting the president of the United States I don't want to go to something that's even more surprising the election cycle to me yesterday as I approached caring for the show the CNN poll national Posada showing that Bernie Sanders had gone in the lead over Joe Biden the national Paul and then I today was in correspondence with our colleague John fund of the National Review online and he sent me a granite state poll from New Hampshire Bernie Sanders is going to lead by twelve points in New Hampshire and then I saw the Iowa poll of these last days showing the Bernie Sanders was also outpacing Joe Biden and Liz before in Iowa the thinking is that Bernie Sanders is drawing from the disappointing Elizabeth Warren supporters but this is the question to you is the best are the Democrats really ready really ready for Bernie Sanders at the top of their nomination process are they ready to deal with what he represents good evening to you ASAP good evening John I put it another way that they're ready to sabotage him and they're doing so right now how is the the the the halt Mike incident with between Bernie and Elizabeth Warren at the CNN debate took several days facts the B. leaks tool to be used in the media what what what was the pulley that what what was the accidental pools for several days and then you have the long interview with Hillary Clinton where she goes off to him and this falling on top of the private discussion the the heart to credit discussion in which we're supposed to believe that an up and socialist the honeymoon in the Soviet Union is Bernie Saunders did flat out told Elizabeth Warren the woman combi to present United States what he knew full well he'd probably be running against of the the Democrat establishment on it's clear in the in the last few days has set its sights on Bernie Saunders three years ago it was done with super delegates it was done with the D. and the using every tool in the book to rob him of the nomination I'm not saying this out of any sympathy to them on reconstituted socialist we're talking about here but he he is not part of the the classic Democrat establishment and that's why the knives already out the the the odds of March is occurring as we see it with regard to Bernie Saunders because the Democrat establishment cannot abide the thought that this man could end up at the top of the ticket history says that a stop fill in the blank movement always results in that person getting a hand getting the nomination right now the anybody but fill in the blank Bernie MO is probably contributing to those numbers that I gave you in the polling is gaining attention in addition to the fact Elizabeth Warren is fading so let us entertain the unimaginable is the trump campaign ready to run against Bernie Sanders the populist is is there is there any stone we need to turn over and look at closely before we enter into that fantastic dual I was also the reason I've been with my colleagues in California will places but two thousand the conservative patriots came to the event it was Dennis Prager myself mark to be in and one of the questions from the audience was which one of the candidates are you worried about which one of the candidates on the left a gives you you know most sleepless nights when it comes to a a competition with food with the incumbent and mark was lost the question that is with us the question and I said it doesn't matter modern politics is about celebrity it's about charisma individuals like Bloomberg Macy's you can purchase it but we know that you cannot buy love all popularity but John it really I'm I'm completely sincere about this it doesn't matter who they choose even if Oprah runs our fifth absurd conspiracy theory that Michelle Obama the love it's it's crazy job why because of the the economic results that is your pot full when you create we've added eleven trillion dollars to the US economy with when the stock market you can't keep up with the breaking records on the stock market and when you see the unemployment figures the likes of which we haven't seen since nineteen sixty nine it really means that it doesn't matter who gets the nomination just on pocket books to load Donald Trump should all other things being equal stroll back into the White House and yet Sam what we see in the polling is that Bernie Sanders is going to do very well in the first two votes that the Iowa caucus in New Hampshire we have reason to believe he'll do well in Nevada as well just reason to believe I haven't seen any recent polls bodies it is leading nationally in some fashion what are the Democrats who support Bernie Sanders telling us that they don't care about the White House that they don't care about the party that they don't care about down ticket is that what they say what what the Democrats and I'm trying to think yeah I'm trying to do what we were supposed to do is have you were trained in military intelligence you trying to get into the mind of the follow but at least as a coach out of the Cold War the pho was rational drawn when we collected the intelligence and read the read the the the the publications all of all of the enemy we could extrapolate to some kind of rational objective in the in the application of ways and means to that executive but with when we're talking about individuals who truly believe that after forty countries for their countries have tried socialism since the manifesto was written by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels and every single one of those countries has failed I I have no rational explanation for what they see it's it's really indoctrination from the nineteen seventies on was that they always have you and I will watch this story I mean that's our job will watch this story over the next a number of weeks to the February third what is it is less than two weeks to remember third will watch a story and see whether it is this suicide watch for the Democratic Party or is there some scheme here that so clever it's like the ability to cheat at monopoly you can't catch them have it all right we'll see
The Story of Food Fights
"The day. There was a guy named soupy sales like so many before him the three stooges Harpo Marx Charlie Chaplin soupy was known for sight. gags one particular gag. Getting Pie in the face was his trademark mark. He said he's been hit by a pie or thrown apply twenty thousand times in his career. It's a joke almost as old as comedy itself and it never fails to get laugh. So how do you beat classic you amplify it make it explode. Yes ladies and germs. I'm talking about a food. Fight in Nineteen seventy-four Bell Brooke started a fight in blazing saddles that began in the studio commissary spilled onto a movie set and made its way out onto the streets of Los US Angeles in nineteen seventy eight. The John Belushi who fired the shot that started one of the best known food fights ever filmed. Today we examine Zaman food fights where to go. If you WANNA be part of one how you can stage your own and what. The best foods are for creating your own masterpiece at home. The idea food fight isn't hard to grasp. Is people throwing food at one another for fun. It's fun because it's so socially wrong. And it makes the best. These types of food food fights are fun but they don't always turn out the way you planned for instance. Ten San Antonio high school students were arrested after starting a fight in the school cafeteria because there is some nine hundred students in the cafeteria at the time and most of them are trying to get out. The students were charged with inciting a riot in two thousand sixteen gene. Another high school prank took place at Monarch High School in Coconut Creek Florida. The day began normally enough students using superglued seal lockers classroom doors then. Lunchtime came around the trumpet. Blue and students began to hurl as you could imagine. It took a lot of time and money to clean up leading one football player to say. I hope that doesn't affect our football program because we work hard to get our new stuff like New Jersey's and stuff like that how precious but what if you want to be part of a food fight in stay outside the prison cafeteria. Have I got some places for you. Probably the most famous one is law. Toma Tina held each year and billion Spain. It's here that friends. Neighbors tourist pitched tomatoes at each other. It happens in late August and about one hundred metric tons of tomatoes. Go flying for about an hour. I'll put a video link to it in the show notes. Moving up the road to Italy. You'll you'll find the battle of oranges. It began after a woman killed a ruler. WHO said he had the right to sleep with any bride on her wedding night? These days that Murderous Act Act is celebrated by soldiers in period costumes riding through the streets and chariots with people hurling oranges at him as a symbol of the people rising up against unjust rulers. I it's messy and fun with a hint of citrus. Charlie Chaplin inspired the World Custard Pie Championship in Cox Heath Britain teams of five work work against one another to land pie strategically on their opponents. A pie to the face gets the most points in reality. The pies are not made custard just flour power and water mandatory springs Colorado hosts a fruitcake tossing contest. It's designed to get rid of all those edible fruit cake to get. During the holidays. There are two classes one for two pound cakes and another four pound cakes and there are the automated divisions that include catapults and slingshots and As you would expect there are great throwing fights along with lots of other varieties. You could do some research it easily come up with more however if you prefer to. Diy Your own food nick. I've got some helpful hints. I attacked from the rear. If you're staging your own fight be sure to think about cleanup I because the whole point of this is to make commits if it's outdoors. Make sure there's a garden hose around before any one goes into the house. This is made even easier if you have a nude food fight. One in group of Pranksters plan their fight in a public park just before a major thunderstorm. They also had a friend with a pickup truck so they could ride in the bed. After the fight it has also been recommended to Rub Petroleum Jelly. All over your body before the fight to keep smells and colors from getting into your skin again. If you plan a new food fight right this can add another fund dimension. Apparently food fights are popular for children's birthday parties the kids can be divided into teams that use a progressive list of ingredients ingredients to vanquish their foes. One suggestion was to start with water then progressed to flower. Add a little butter some baking powder and you're ready to make biscuits as is an after battle tree. So what are you going to let everyone toss a balloon filled with fruit juice. Cookies with applesauce beings popcorn mashed potatoes. Pasta Pasta and marshmallows are all good choices. Some of those are good for spearing. So you can add insult to injury so now when it comes to food fights your smart Cookie

Couldn't find the sound that he was looking for and all of a sudden he looked through the glass at any point in us. Come out here I go out there.

Her thing was amazing. And I get back to the dressing room and there's a text on my phone from Lionel and the text says I'm sitting on my hotel balcony listening to you sing right here waiting and I'm so proud of you. I mean that's thirty seven years later. How sweet and I text him as a good were you. Let's go to dinner. He said I'm getting ready to go to the airport. But he said I'm I'm sitting here and I'm listening to you sing to these. You know ten thousand people in London and I'm just so proud of so go back the thirty six years to when you were a teenage kid and he called you and encourage doing your music and then the gift of time he poured into you in the studio and you know. I wrote a book about it. I talk about it on my show every night. The importance of of changing the world one heart at a time and I had a friend in my kitchen the other day said I finally got it. She said I finally got what she goes. This whole one hard time thing. You're talking about you. She'd been with me when I was interacting with some of my adopted kids and some other children that are families kind of taken in and she said when you pour yourself into one person it makes a difference Yeah S. That's my whole message right there. Well actually into one person like landlord. She did for you. Yeah the impact that has it's like that ripple the pebble in the pond. The ripples go out for ever that impact his impact and influence on your music your impact and your music's influence on June rations of people. It just grows and builds and an it's the essence. I believe of love and the reason. We're here yeah totally. I mean you can imagine when you're especially at that sort of age of seventeen eighteen to have someone like him say that to me was like a rocket confidence and hope like the fuel that that gave me was life changing and I have the only thing I've been able to do for him for Lionel is tell the stories. I want everybody to know I I I tell everybody who will listen with the best part about being friendly with Lionel Ritchie's when you call him and he picks goes hello Gotti so cute so for years. I've got to play music and now you're back in the studio recording again. Tell me about your new stuff because my producer Jane. He came to me a couple of months ago and was so excited. I love that I love that. Anybody cares at this point. But that's the cool thing about the fact that I'm you know I I still get to be on the air as I've I've seen I know the stories. I've seen the history I watch. Daisy Fuentes back in the day when I had a TV on. I haven't had a TV for twenty years for you. We we never watch TV but having that history and loving your music so it's really cool. Well you know I got to a point in the last ten years I'd say where I sort of Felt like touring and playing concerts is really what my career is. And if as long as I'm able to do it I really am a believer that Records and putting on the radio and all that stuff is really for younger people but the conflict was that I you know. I still write songs all the time. And I I love making new music and I love making records but I did get to a point where it was a little bit like. What's like Y Y you know? I have a couple of acquaintances who are sort of peers of mine around the same age or older than me that were popular when I was popular on the radio and they still have this what I consider a delusion of. I'm going to have another number one record. I'M GONNA and it's like dude. No you're not and it's OK because you had a lot of hits and I feel like once I determined that it really just has to be about my love of writing and recording new music and that's all that matters then it was like okay while I wanna make an album I actually. This is another great story. I I found myself at a dinner at really small dinner six or eight months ago with Chris Martin and I'd never met him before and I'm a fan. I'm a big fan of coal. Play in what he does and he's really really At least from my one couple of our hang with him he was really charming and kind and we had a couple of really great conversation. He asked me so. So I know you're touring all the time but like are you making a new record or anything. Yeah just finishing a new album and and I said you know I don't know what it means for somebody like me. But and so then somebody started talking and the conversation shifted for five or ten minutes and I could see Chris face like look. Look at me like we're not done with that conversation. Sure enough politely. He got out of that conversation and said to me kind. Go back to what you were saying like. I'll tell you what it means for you. It's still coming through you and it's like you said. I'm sure when you started writing songs at was about. Yeah you had a lot to prove in. You've had an incredible career but it's still about the song still come through us like as long as the song is still coming through us. That's what matters. And here's this guy. That's you know much younger than I am. Then it was a really kind sweet thing to say and it was like yeah man yes. That's exactly what it's about and so what this music is about is me just going in and having fun and recording the song the single another one down. I ended up writing with my son. Lucas and he produced it I wrote another song with him. I wrote several songs by myself which I have traditionally done. Most of my stuff has been self written but I collaborated with some New People in this record two which was really really fun young so I'm writers and and my friend Matt scandal from the band. Vertical horizon is my best friend. But also I think one of the most talented guys in the world and and it's a very schizophrenic album. Like there's there's stuff that sort of like modern country and then there's stuff that's like super modern pop and then there's like the it's all over the place but the thread is my voice and they. It's just a collection of songs. I really really love it. I want people to hear sympathizer very cool. That is pretty simple but pretty sweet and I'm glad that That you got another one down to get to us so that we could Share it with our love that you guys played. You played well. I'm very fortunate in that. You know there's all this research there's all this Gobbledygook that although record or radio companies do that that tells me who my target audience is supposed to be their big on research and you know. Imagine you're on the air you're talking to a twenty seven year old female driving home from work picking up her child at daycare and the data data but the truth is I get phone calls from young people. I get phone calls. I got a phone call the other day from somebody who lives down on Mount Shasta off the grid. He's in his late eighties. He cuts his own firewood because his cabin. The House that he lives in is only heated with firewood. And he's like completely off the grid and he's got this radio that he picks me up on every night when we talk for a long time and I'm like dude you are so not my target audience and I so love this conversation. We're having and so It's Nice a broad range of people get to hit to hear your music in other here right here waiting and all of your big hits every night because they're perfect for every request and dedication anyone ever makes. I don't know if you've listened but right here. Waiting is a song that that I used to play for couples who were getting back together or couples who had been separated by the military. Yeah that's that was huge for the especially when the song was a hit in eighty nine nose Gulf War yeah. I met obviously many men who were deployed. At the time. They'll go man. That was my song with my wife and my girl and I also met a lot of widows and widowers military personnel who died during that time and that was their song. This one woman told.

upbringing can you tell us about Winston's parents briefly well he's talking to the upper cloth he was a charismatic successful Victorian politician he became chance of Exchan- so you never saw any of genius in Churchill and green to netted frankly they all the Stanford right to any sound full of contempt and to stay and his son Winston continue to love him and Martin and when his father died when Winston was twenty he raises who's focusing in Winston sorry randolph someone's name and he basically didn't allow it to to scream up whereas his mother also route took nations over to she was a great American future in society maybe something offense with the Prince of Wales Austrian about Saddam heels Okay and you went to school did he do you have did you have much luck at school I mean what sort of student was he he was a monster the student and he made himself out to be it's very rare for politicians to try and make themselves out to be thicker than they genuinely All I it should be in fact that being the dumbs 'cause he portrayed himself broke free my life he in fact was in the top third of all the classes ooh okay well let's turn to Churchill politics because he wasn't always a conservative he crossed the parliamentary floor in Nantes in four over the threat four government opposed to free trade in non white at thirty three he was the youngest cabinet member in forty years and then of course he was pretty significant figuring the British military from an early age this is of Relevance to Australians Andrew What do you wrote about his filings glibly in Nineteen fifteen well of course he was responsible for the idea of the of attacking the Straits of the dodgers novels and it was a brilliant idea to come off name one of the great strategic tunes of the of history of all Pfaff but as we all know say silently on the eighteenth of March nineteen fifteen Liane go six ships foods straits and then of course largely town to Him we double down and and landed all the way through fifteen and of course over the next eight months few one hundred forty seven thousand casualties suffered in the in the West Inside Straight so this was a drastic and terrible decision but one boots the real problem came in implementation well yeah okay now we went into politics to elect liberals rejoined the conservatives in the mid nineteen twenties what did he do that because the conservatives came back to the idea of free trade they it'd been the policy that let's say that's the party he joined the Nipples does the Conservatives dumps feature each and David intense you're often attributed with the quite quite I if a man is not a suspect I by the time he's twenty he has no heart if he's not a conservative by the time he's forty he has no brain churchill really say that I am and unfortunately there are lots of great lines like that but he didn't say he might have if you're going to keep going for example make the safest shape about about lady astor drinking coffee around any number of things keeping lucky men like Groucho Marx no power say funny things people with cheating too even if you didn't say those funny things it was talking about Winston Churchill with Andrew Roberts now Andrew your account numerous occasions when Churchill cheated death in your fi. He survived a school stabbing Cuban Bullets Boer Artillery German shells on the western front a near drowning replaying crushes three car accidents and a house fire Croaky and I'm actually very serious mainly at the age of eleven nomadic agent doctors administered brandy to the inevitable and which she wanted to be so you will send you make the point the church will develop the art of seeing virtually everything through the prism of history yeah it was the fact that he wasn't himself from historic congruent several extremely good he's a genius he was widely seen as Virginia wasn't he won the Nobel Prize for literature and actually he's unhappy about that because the price for peace that he was going to win communicants history who actually has been disappointed when he got the Nobel Prize which shop now we talk about a lot of people think of Churchill he's attitude towards the Nazis and Hitler and of course the British policy of appeasement toward Nazi Germany people forget this but in the late thirties it was actually popular with the British people tell us more about how Churchill riled against the spirit of the Times in the lightning thirties well he was only a final team is it's like jeeze you grew up with Jesus father did like the whole day with them they appreciated the service they it says humanity he was honest from quite an early age and saying he had an early warning system came during the Nazis that a lot of the other people in many wrench AC- rights didn't have also were so we mentioned earlier in being an historian he he sold the threat let's go to the European balance of power that we opposed and EDUC- seen fanaticism place in his life in a way that the other primary tonight people standing Naples we will never change and didn't say he was the first major predisposition of the decade the only major politician to not only warn against Hitler Nazis but also talk with an idea about what do I e rearming especially in the air the by the way you know you obviously know John Howard our second longest serving prime minister did you know that he's middle name is Winston it was named by his parents in mid Naughty thirty nine? When as we've discussed Winston Churchill was anything but the flavor of the month he was seen as yesterday's man rod that shows John's parents and Great must be full size. This is searching tremendously impressive actually I didn't know that's in Ann Arbor got I think yeah well during the war Churchill husband and relations with the United States which meant that America applied an important role in helping Britain defeat awesome but what about the altar pace conference towards the end of World War Two was not Churchill's finest hour why well because they back large number of famine of Yugoslavs to to get to Marshal Tito too because he he basically killed them and a hand backlog Germans and ethnic Germans who an ethnic Russians as well actually Cossacks to stone promptly murdered them as well so as far as the share sort of real politique day was concerned they had to believe result in general had to believe starlings were vulne- that he was going to get to respect the integrity and independence another eastern European countries but unfortunately Adelson those deals went shot which net new Mexico's yeah false assurances by S- talented the free elections would be held in eastern Europe but I mean you bit hot on Churchill because many historians would decide that the dying FDI he essentially stitched Churchill up I didn't believe that case I've been I've found myself we H mccown superbowl cabinet Churchill held on return from Yalta in which very much that he thought he could business was done in the deeper deep stalling the only alternative to trust on of course he was for that much thin walls and it's very other fueled fairness of course because in a million Russian soldiers variant at the time he was also at Folsom Missouri in March Ninety six When you made the Great Iron Kerr in speech the first major Western politician to warn against started was doing in eastern Europe
Hostless Emmys Hit All-Time Ratings Low
"The Emmy awards were last night and for a second year in a row the ratings hit it and all time low but bad news for broadcast. TV was good news for streaming joining me to recap the ceremony is the chief TV critic at Variety Daniel Daniel Diario. Hi How are you. I'm good. I WanNa ask you this whole idea of the hostess award show. It feels like it's not going away anytime soon. If you were to grade the as on how they handled it. What kind of Marx would you give them. I would give the EMMYS a failing grade for how they handled filling in the gaps without got a host. I thought all of the interstitial bits all of the comedy all the attempts to explain to the audience what TV was fell totally flat. I will say one positive fringe benefit was that I noticed that fewer stars were being played off and the longer speeches were more impactful and more thoughtful every other aspect of the production. I thought didn't work and I missed the presence of a kind of guiding intelligence. Let's listen to the speeches that did get to run a little bit longer. This is Michelle Williams accepting her emmy for playing gwen Verdon and Fosse Verdon and so the next time a woman especially a woman of color because she stands to make fifty two cents on the dollar compared to her white. Male counterpart tells you what we need to order to do her job. Listen to her the. I think it's important to note Michelle. Williams has simone history with this. She went back for some re-shoots on the movie all the money in the world. She got paid a thousand thousanddollars. Mark Wahlberg got a million and a half so this is a personal issue for her but it feels like the really did discover something by not playing Michelle. How Williams off absolutely I think I mean I feel as though if you think back a couple of years when Nicole Kidman won for big little lies she ultimately we got to give a long speech about what she learned about domestic violence in the role but she was kind of fighting with the orchestra in a way that kind of sapped the dignity and meaning of the moment the fact that Williams was able to kind of speak in Kristalina way as composed she was carrying across these points that were personal to her relevant to the project relative to Hollywood. I thought it was really important on unfortunately with the viewership being what it was. I'm not sure how many people saw these great points but I I still think it was important. Let's talk about the viewership because it does appear that the ratings were an all time low for the Emmy Broadcast and it does. I feel like what was celebrated. Last night was not network television. I think Saturday night live with the only network show that picked up any emmy's in the primetime ceremony last tonight. Does it feel us if this is a network show that celebrating stuff that you would never see on any network. Yes it feels as though this is a network show that not only we celebrate stuff that doesn't air on network but stuff that never could I mean fleabag show. I greatly admired that was the night's big winner in comedy is so so far beyond I think what the great network watching still extant mill American audience is accustomed to that basically could come from another planet. I think what this means for. The EMMYS is an existential question going forward of what the show can do and where it should even be. Would this be better better served. If we put the Amazon Netflix would be better served. We put it on
Judy Garland's Top Movie Moments
"Welcome to film spotting Josh. We both took a crash course judy. Garland movies of the last few weeks and today is the final. Are you ready. I think I'm ready yeah I haven't I haven't seen everything. I don't even know if Michael Phillips is seen everything she's major so yeah. I feel prepared. They're still blind spots but this should be I think appropriate to our styles of preparing preparing for a show you methodically doled out the movies took them in over a few weeks and I crammed just didn't college. I procrastinated and I had to hit everything thing at the last minute to be fair. It helps when we actually commit to something for weeks. Had A title which is very rare for the show is rare well. Let's find out if Michael Phillips has is in fact seen every Judy garland movie we welcome in the man who will be handling proctoring duties for our garland examined is Michael Phillips from the Tribune. How are you good to see you goes good to see you. It's been a while I mean it's been a long time. I know it'd be on. I know we do this. More regular like Obama's. First Tournament feels like a slight exaggerate so how many how many do you think you've seen countered them up the garlic first of all. I had a wrong. I thought it was beverly girl. I'm on my three sons so I prepared all wrong. That's next show my next issue. That'll be a download killer. Yes but you know I'd say if you look at all the titles including the the obscure secure ones before she was advised. I've seen two-thirds maybe enough to feel pretty smug about my knowledge base compared to you guys okay okay well. That's all that really matters but let me ask you. Is there one at the tip of your tongue. That is a blind spot. You're embarrassed about. Is there a garland film. You've always meant to see that you haven't y actually I joked. I joked with the email to you guys earlier today about about pigskin parade or actually it was on twitter yes yes. I've never seen pigskin parade now. How you were just needling I was kneeling. I haven't seen pigskin parade. so you know if we can do a whole show on that next week at appreciate it could get to it but no that's of the biggies you know there's a few others in the early forties that I haven't seen him never seen presenting Lily Mars a lot of other things that would just sort of make you look click nipper the dog just staring. You know like what presenting. Lily were so these obscure titles to to to share explore someday later later in the show. We'll talk a little bit about hustlers. The new dramas set in the world of UPSCALE GENTLEMEN'S CLUBS IT Stars J. Lo and Constance Wu Michael and I both had a chance to see that that movie we open to big box office numbers last weekend. We've also got pull results to our question about which acclaimed movie director needs to make a movie set in space a lot of great feedback from that one including one Josh like last week. I might just be setting aside in my back pocket. Just bring on you upon. I'm going to have to leave the studio. We'll see but first I judy garland. The garland biopic Judy starring Renee Zellweger opens in limited release including here in Chicago next weekend the reviews so far pretty pretty much what you'd expect from the genre that Josh knows as his most detested movie genre the biotechs a little strong but not my favorite Los Zellwegger herself and getting a lot of praise now Michael. You have made a little bit of the festival around here lately. Did you see no no tomorrow to screening tomorrow. Does the does the listener goodwill no no. It doesn't know that you're going to see gonNA see a trend. We will have to have you back on to hear your thoughts. I could go on singing. I'll I'll go on singing. That's what I'll of course we may or may not get to a full review of Judy here on the show but we did want us the movie as an opportunity to spend some time time on Garland herself who until recently was kind of a blind spot for both of us Josh with the exception of the wizard of Oz of course it really was the Manelli marathon where we got to dive into her work. Is it fair to say that maybe the wizard of Oz isn't the best introduction one could have to Judy garland because Saad as a kid and many times sense and I don't know. Oh that a place to her strengths now that I've seen obviously over the rainbow is a central piece of focus and made her you know center to another level level of notoriety and fame but the character I don't think is sort of a passive character could be a little whiny and I held off on Garland for a while thinking meanwhile that's Judy Garland and then I think it was producers. Sam's pushing of Easter parade a couple of years ago. That was my first non wizard Judy Garland film the One with Fred Astaire and I was just completely shocked. At what a great president. She wasn't that so very different and then you're right. It was the Manelli marathon that really gave me a good sense of what she could do as well as catching up with nineteen fifty four is a star is born when the remake came out so yeah than really immersing myself men for this list. I in her stuff and surprise surprise Adam She's really something yeah. Check out the big brain on Josh. He's done all his homework. Shoot down the conclusion Asian. Is that needs to know about you the wizard of Oz I was. I'm a crammer like Adam. I'm doing the most I could watch the catch up on stuff. I hadn't seen in years years and years and stuff. I I knew I liked but hadn't seen in a long long time and just the the real pleasure of watching shing concentrated way of you know a little a little bit here and there for a couple of days of somebody who is just such an astounding triple threat who did did the top of the top of the heap and I mean I mean she. It's it's there's a handful of other. Mgm Stars Gene Kelly Fred mystere and then you know one or two others but it's it's Kelly astaire in Garland and then there's everybody else and that and that's when you think about what that actually means and when you talk about the work they did together with the garlanded with Kellyanne garlanded with a stereo. It's just you know. I don't have the same love for Easter parade that you do Josh but you know the talent level is just kind of astonishing though and it's just sort of a I don't know I don't I can't even be cynical about how what what a what a strong response. I had just kind of like just sort of like soaking up the talent because it's not somebody I grew up with loving from age eight on on you know I mean I mean I. I wasn't really a wizard of Oz annual viewer at that age you know because if the marksmen does Ron I was mark of course they were the Marx brothers. Those were not in the was it of is you know I would've actually loved to see him as ten minutes but the radar now jokes aside Josh I do think it's fair to say and this May bear out as we get into our picks that we've discovered there are depths to judy. Garland is a performer that probably aren't fully on display away in the wizard of Oz. So why don't we go ahead and jump into those picks we are going to devote this show to our top five. Judy garland moments and we're going to start it off with an an expert voicemail a guest opinion here from a previous contributor to the show does Ray Garcia Michael. You put us in touch with desert initially. She Played Madeleine Colin in Damian Chazelle debut film Guide Madeline on a park bench. She's currently an associate professor of Latin American Latino and Caribbean studies at Dartmouth and if you're a longtime listener the show you'll recall that she joined us for our top five musical numbers back in two thousand sixteen that was a tie in with our review of Damian Chazelle la La land and she's got a great pick for her favorite Judy Garland. Hi this is Deborah Garcia leaving a message for the Judy Garland show show if I had to choose my favorites judy moments which is indeed a tough task it would have to be rather obvious choice. I'm afraid of the have yourself Merry Little Christmas Song in Navy in Saint Louis. Your saw aw little let your heart the next year. Oh it's it's really an anomaly in musicals of that era in the sense that it is a song that is quite dark. It's a moment that's quite dark. even rather kind of foreboding it's Judy of course in her character esther trying to console her younger sister sure as they prepare to leave St Louis and moved to New York. The lyrics of course are storied lyrics. Now we know that there were at least two different versions of lyrics. The first is one being much darker than the first and it's it's something that quite rare for Hollywood musicals of the period to delve into such dark seems uh-huh change and family separation and perhaps separation is eternal and even though she's trying to comfort her little sister to D- it's clear that esther has her own doubts about what is about to happen and we hear that I think in in Judy Garland's voice voice up here. She's a masterful singer so we hear both the kind of conviction and hopefulness times that things will work out all right and then at other moments I think including the very very end of the song is she seeing those last final words we hear that there is some doubt there on her part some day soon you who beat him and and also just say that that for me you know that song has always been a kind of touch tone in my life something that has helped me kind of mark the various listen turns of my journey's first away from home three thousand miles away to college again leaving a college that I came to love and considering home and embarking on a new career and then to of course marriage and and having a kid and every year I revisit is it that film and that song and it helps me to kind of chart where I've been but also to help me brace myself for the future. Thanks
Donald Trump, Obama And President discussed on WBT Programming
"Here's what we here's what we have with Donald Trump in the latest polls these are the ABC Washington post polls it shows that he has a forty seven percent approval rating that is up from Obama at this same time period to had a forty six percent approval rating and remember we kept saying he's so unpopular he's got to lose well he's got a machine it's got a machine yeah but he's forty six percent on a disapproval well Donald Trump believe it or not is one point more popular than Obama was think of that think of that now let's remember that he won his next election fifty one percent now say that trump is good for the economy that's amazing to me because almost everybody has been affected by this economy so I don't know how others are thinking that he's not good for the economy of the fifty one percent say that he's good for the economy if that holds or goes up he I think he has a sure ticket into the the oval office the next time around I think you and I'm not sure do you think that people are are willing to say in a poll where they stand that's kind of where I'm a little confused right now I I don't know if I don't know if it's that or if the Democrats are doing such a thorough job of class warfare all the talk about is how only the rich you're doing well in this economy are they convincing people that they're not doing well when they are it's possible I think eight you know they that's all the hammer and the hammer it repeatedly all of them every single candidates keeps repeating the same online even when the media will break down and say well you know the president does really well and the economy and well yeah sure with the with the wealthiest Americans with the richest one percent though there are the those are the only ones benefitting so they're they're playing that Marx's card every single time the economy comes up so I don't know if that's what's taking hold or or if or if the polls are flawed we just have such a US screwed up version of success and welfare and how we're doing as a country how you know what our lives should be like I mean I I think people are going to be so shocked we if they would vote for a socialist on how fast this thing falls apart all I mean you you know that how fast
They faced down the tanks in Tiananmen Square. Now they want their children to forget it
"Thirty years ago. The Chinese government brutally crushed protests in Beijing's Tiananmen Square thirty years later, many have forgotten the deadly truth about communism for the Colson center. I'm John Stonestreet. This is break point for two months in one thousand nine hundred nine students gathered in TNN square demanding political reforms, analogous to the economic reforms instituted by then chairman, dang Xiaoping after some initial indecision, the communist party decided to crack down on may twentieth. The government declared martial law. Moved two hundred and fifty thousand troops into Beijing on June. Third state run television warned Beijing residents to stay inside the next day, the army advanced towards Tiananmen Square protesters attempted to impede the army's advance and destroyed more than one hundred military vehicles and damaged nearly five hundred others, but ultimately resistance would prove to be futile, trucks, and armored personnel carriers. Join tanks and attack helicopters. The army's principal target was a ten meter tall statue dubbed. The god. Of democracy, which was erected by the students and bore a more than passing resemblance to the statue of liberty after first firing warning shots. The troops fired directly on the protesters estimates of the death toll range widely from hundreds to thousands and addition at least sixteen hundred people were arrested many imprisoned for more than two decades and others who were never seen again. The message from the communist party was clear to be rich might be as den once put it glorious, but forget about being free the events of June one thousand nine hundred nine make clear that the communist party was determined to retain, complete political, and social control will given this history with this regime. No one should be surprised at the recent crackdown on Chinese Christians and Muslims leaguers. But what is surprising is how many Chinese today are untroubled by the events of June hundred eighty nine even worse, the authors of a recent article in the Washington Post described a popular nostalgia for? Maza Dong mouse rule was among the most brutal in all of history. This is the Mao whose attempt to industrialize and collectivize China virtually overnight called the great leap forward killed at least forty five million people. This is the Mao who's great proletarian cultural revolution. Attempted to purge Chinese society of capitalism, traditional elements by killing between five hundred thousand and three million people and selling countless more into internal exile. Among its victims were the father and aunt of current leaders using thing who committed suicide as a result of being persecuted, the tragic irony is that any doubt from ou- only helps legitimize the authoritarianism and oppression. Now, expanding under g how can we make sense of this, selective and misguided historical memory will most of the nostalgic are too young to have personally, experienced mouse rule even more, they haven't been taught the truth about our TNN men and approved or state run schools. Of course that same thing. Can't be said a bus in the west who's a memory is often just as selective and just as wrong when it comes to communism writer, Cathy young who lived in the USSR until she was seventeen describes what she calls Kami chic now. She's not referring to Soviet apologised or sympathizers prior to nineteen Ninety-one. She's talking about the two thousand eighteen teen vogue article that urged readers to use. Karl Marx's ideas to understand how Donald Trump was elected president. She's referring to a two thousand seventeen New York Times op Ed insisting that women had better sex in communist east, Germany, or one, hard left publication that recently tweeted for all the Soviet Union's many faults by traversing. It's vast architectural landscape. We get a glimpse of what a built environment for the many not the few could look like. Now, if all we knew about communism where it's histories of oppression and mass murderer that should be enough to disavow us of any nostalgia for it as the authors of the black book of communism wrote communist regimes turned mass. Crime into a full blown system of government. The result was one hundred million plus debts including the martyrs of Tiananmen Square. But that tweet itself about building environments, for the many, not the few tells us all we need to know about the flawed worldview that undergirds this great historical evil to a communist, but society is always more important than the individual individuals must be sacrificed for the utopian and fantastical greater good that lies somewhere in the future, and always just beyond reach whenever it's tried in the past or in the future. This fatal flaw will leave fatalities because bad ideas have victims, the history of communism. Like it's worldview is neither glorious nor worthy of nostalgia
Why and How Are Documents Redacted?
"Recently, the American public got its first look at special counsel, Robert Muller's to volume report on the investigation into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen presidential election and some may have been startled to see how much of the four hundred and forty eight page document about seven point two five percents of the text. According to the news, website, FOX had been blacked out by us attorney general William bar, each blacked-out word or passage was labeled with a color coded notation indicating the legal justification for withholding that material these included potential harm to an ongoing legal matter. The need to conceal investigative techniques, personal privacy, and grand jury testimony which generally must be kept secret under rule six of the federal rules of procedure in less judge issues a waiver. The House Judiciary committee, still subpoenaed. The uncensored report and bars. Explanations didn't quell the widespread curiosity about what it was the bar decided that we shouldn't see we spoke with Michael revenue, sqi an attorney, who's an expert and the release of government documents through the freedom of information act. He said, there's something psychological about it. If you see a document with blocked out sections your eyes go to it, and you wonder what's under there. Welcome to the arcane secretive subculture of redaction, which is the practice of removing or concealing portions of documents before publication. It's a phenomenon that most ordinary Americans probably are unfamiliar with as evidenced by the four thousand percent spike in the number of searches for redact and redacted on the Miriam Webster, dictionary website, on the day that bar sent a letter to congress revealing that he would release a redacted version, a Muller's report. But attorneys journalists and historical researchers are custom to blackout spaces on documents as a consequence of dealing with sensitive, subjects redacting has long been part of government imposed secrecy. When former CIA employee Victor Marchetti and his co author, John, D Marx sought to publish a book on the CIA in the early nineteen seventies government censors who had a thirty to review the book under Marchetti employment contract. Redacted one hundred sixteen pages from the text the book was published with blank spaces showing the location of the redacted, passages decades later documents obtained using the freedom of information. Act are still sometimes riddled with blank squares over faces and photographs and black. Bars over words and sentences and sometimes entire pages. But it's not just the government in the legal world attorneys routinely. Redact portions of documents that are to be turned over during the discovery process in civil lawsuits. Those deletions occur in order to protect attorney client privilege attorney's work product for clients commercially sensitive information and information, not relevant to the litigation. Other reductions are required by the courts themselves to protect personal information such as social security numbers from misuse, one of the things about redaction is that, while there are rules about, what should be redacted. There aren't really a lot of hard and fast rules about how to block out that material for years attorneys, and government officials often simply used black markers to conceal sensitive portions of documents, which were then photocopied. So that someone couldn't hold the paper up to the light and read censored words in the mid two, thousands as more and more documents begin to be distributed in the laconic forum, both the government and private sector law firm, started shifting to redacting the digital files themselves using software tools. These days attorneys involved in big. Corporate lawsuits often use e discovery platforms, which allow them to manage massive amounts of documents in which contained tools for redacting portions, though, you can also safely redact information using programs like adobe acrobat pro assuming that you're working with PDF's. But regardless of what technology is used. It's necessary to go through documents individually and figure out what to mask, which is a time intensive process. In the case of the Miller report, Barna staff, apparently, scanned a printed copy of the report, redacted it, and then printed and scanned it again to create a new digital copy that excess of caution resulted in a low quality image that wasn't searchable since then the department of Justice has published a searchable version as well, but digital redaction isn't always foolproof once fisted, high tech method for reading redact words in the document involves analyzing their links, and comparing them to other words with the same length on the page and guardian reporter, John Swain found that he could view redacted text in a court document, and the Paul Manafort case by copying and pasting it into a Microsoft Word document. Matthew Ingram of the Columbia journalism review explained quote this likely happened because someone either drew over the unwanted text with black highlighter tool in Microsoft, Word, or used adobe acrobats reduction tools, but forgot to merge them with the original document. We also spoke with Mark Sade a Washington, DC based attorney who specializes in national security law and frequently deals with productions, he said, I don't trust technology. Even if there's a safety mechanism someone will invent something that overrides it thus Zayd generally shoes, electric reduction, his preferred method is to, quote, literally cut it out with scissors, and then photocopy the page it's a really sloppy looking reduction. But no one will ever see what I cut out in other instances, if he's instructed by the government to redact information from a document. He deletes the text and types, the number of words and deleted, by the request of the CIA in its place, but manual reductions on actual paper can go awry to Zabre calls wants receiving Zimmer redacted documents in a case, and discovering that he could hold them up and read the words to the black ink whoever sent them had provided the original pages, rather than making a photocopy. Zayd says that even when information in court papers is redacted. It's sometimes possible to figure out what's in the blackout sections, the client may be able to identify a witness or piece together, what was said in a discussion in which he or she participated, for example. But generally, they explained that it's not wise to speculate, as even educated guesses can be wrong. He gave the example of a freedom of information act, litigation connected with the DP Cooper sky jacking case, he said, we thought a document pertain to a particular person who is dead. But when Zayd gave the government copy of the man's obituary in an effort to get the full document released the told Zayd he assumed wrong and the document was about someone
Another judge grants Robert Kraft's request to exclude spa surveillance video from his trial
"Another judge is turning away video evidence in the Robert Kraft prostitution case on Monday Palm Beach county judge Joseph Marx ruled that prosecutors cannot use surveillance video. And this is after another judge made the same ruling last week. The seventy seven year old patriots owner has pleaded not guilty to solicitation of prostitution charges. He was also supposed to appear in court in Florida on Tuesday. But that hearing was
Alabama, Bill And Senate discussed on Here & Now
"Vote on a strict abortion. Ben, maybe one of the strictest in the country was the first item on the agenda for lawmakers in Alabama state Senate today and immediately became fiery. Now they've delayed that vote at least until next week. Several other states are also limiting abortion rights this week. Georgia became the fourth state to pass a so-called heartbeat. Bill banning an abortion six weeks into a pregnancy. Or when a heartbeat can be heard by doctor it also grants embryos at six weeks and fetuses person hood, Alabama's abortion ban would criminalize doctors who perform the procedure. Andrea Jaeger reporter and hosted WB HMO in Birmingham is on this story. And Andrew we spoke to you last week when state reps past their Bill to Ben pretty much all abortions, with the exception of a serious health risk to the mother. This was senators today what happened and how different is their Bill. Well, there was a small difference in. That's what created that chaos. In the Senate. When this Bill was passed that of a cynic committee yesterday, the senators there added an exception for rape and incest. The original Bill had no exception for rape, and incest, but they added that in and so when this Bill was brought up in the Senate this morning, some Republicans moved to mmediately table that amendment the chair approve that and chaos ensue with with with Democrats objecting to that. And so we had discussions around net procedural issue and coming out of that you had Senate president proteomic Republican state Senator Dole Marsh, he offered this this particular amendment that was just stripped wasn't amendment that I've always wanted on a Bill in any Bill I've ever supported and what I'm going to ask for, and maybe this would be the time is that everybody's go home this weekend. They need to listen to the constituents about this Bill with them without the amendment. We just took off and we need to come back Tuesday. Have extended debate and make that final decision. And that's what I'm going to ask at this point that we care this over to the call of the chair until you deal with this on next Tuesday. That's exactly what they did. He get pretty chaotic before. That though is that a surprise as you've said, this is seems to be if there are Democrats, of course, who wanted the exception for rape, and incest cases. But is it a surprise that you have Republicans as we just heard who also wanted that what we knew going into it that this was a point of contention even within the Republican caucus not all of them were keen with having to build. It didn't have exception. We didn't know is how exactly that was going to be dealt with how it was going to play out. And as we saw this morning at means delay a little little more time to work that out. Well, and talk about you know, because we are seeing this move in many states to bring up these bills, and in most of the states, and people are lawmakers are saying we are hoping that this goes to the courts, we want this to go all the way to the supreme court with two very conservative recent appointees is that the sense in Alabama. And how does it compare to the so-called heartbeat bills? Yeah. That's the supporters of the Bill. Here in Alabama are very explicit that they intend this Bill as a court challenge, they expect it to be challenged and make its way to the federal court system. They hope to the supreme court where the nineteen seventy three Roe v. Wade decision might be reconsidered on paper. It is certainly a stronger Bill than say the heartbeat bills. We've seen in other states because it does we send original form does criminalize abortion in all cases, except for the health of the mother. Opponents would argue though that the heartbeat bills. Functionally are abortion banned because for many women, they don't know at six weeks that they're pregnant, but but regardless of that court challenges most likely are ahead, and that's what proponents of this legislation. Went to see and how are pro choice advocates opponents reacting to the spill don't they're gearing up for the fight as well groups such as Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties union of Alabama promised a lawsuit here in Alabama. If. Does pass.

"Okay so you support i mean of course marks in his in that quote that i just read from him said that society will control the means of production but society doesn't really control things who ends up controlling things is the fuck and state and so if you're advocating for the state taking more power the state controlling the means of production the state abolishing private property all of that shit right that same mechanism that is the state is acting in a way it's what's doing all of the terrible things the state is what's taking people's you know wealth away from them the state is what's going into the farms and russia and fucking stealing what they deemed any excess crops from people leaving people to fucking starved to death they're collectivized farms as they call it everything that's happening is happening through the mechanism that you support whereas us on the other hand we're supporting the free market and private property and everything we complain about is coming from the state which is the mechanism that we oppose so when is at here and complain about the wars or complain about the police state or complain about taxation or regulation or any of these other things it's all what we're against it's all what's what's violating private property rights so really we have a pretty solid consistent argument and they've got to argue in circles about how this wasn't real marxism but it's goddamn and insane it's fucking insane that you would have anybody you know that anybody in two thousand eighteen after this experiment's been run so many times would still be even attempting to defend karl marx just goddamn bananas.

"Okay here's karl marx understanding of economics okay the quote from karl marx for as soon as the distribution of labor comes into being each man has a particular exclusive sphere of activity which is forced upon him and from which he cannot escape he is a hunter a fisherman a herdsman or a critical critic and must remain so if he does not want to lose his means of livelihood while in communist society where nobody has won exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch she wishes society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another thing tomorrow to hunt in the morning fish in the afternoon rear cattle in the evening criticize after dinner just as i have a mind without ever becoming a hunter fisherman herdsmen or critic so that probably sounds nice if you're ten right well why should i have to be either a hunter or a fisherman why can't i be hunter one day a fisherman the next day and then maybe i could drive a fire truck and the next day i could be a dinosaur i mean what's wrong but shouldn't like even folk in ten year old start to see what the problem with that is it's like yeah no in a lazy fair capitalist system you actually can do that but you're not going to be as economically productive because in the division of labor people master different fields so if you're starting as one hundred tomorrow and you've never fucking hunted you're probably not going to produce as much whereas if you do that every day and you develop expertise in it you're probably be better at that but this is this is the marxist thought on economics it's like but wouldn't it be nicer this way i don't know.

"And just for another example we have things now that are made by machines i guess they would have to be values right because there was no human labor attached to those things so this is just it's a completely flawed way of looking at at economics and it is the underpinning of marx's entire philosophy it's the underpinning of his entire economic worldview because if you look at things that like if you if you look at the idea that labor is what creates value right then it becomes very easy to look at it and say oh wait a minute the boss is exploiting all of these people because they are creating all the value with their labour right they're creating all of the value with their labor and he's making a prophet so in other words he's not giving them all of their value for their labor he's keeping a bunch of their labor but it's there fucking labor labor does not create value if you realize that the whole thing starts to fall apart labor doesn't create value it's like look why would i need it employer then if my labor creates the value i've got all the i've got my labor right here i can start working is the problem is i don't have anything to create any value up anything of value i can just start working punching walls and running in place it doesn't create anything of any value now if somebody else is willing to invest in a factory and they'll hire me at the factory because i go into the factory and i have all the equipment the means of production as marx would refer to them now that i have those can create something of value and this is where the value comes from because we know we're anticipating what people are going to want now the other thing that's interesting about this that the austrian economists really figured out is that if.

"All right it is long since time that marks rejoined the community of ordinary intellectuals let me stop you right there let me stop you right there if in your opinion karl marx is the most astute critic of capitalism in history then why would your next sentence be that he should rejoin the community of ordinary intellectuals seems like he should be hailed as a great leader no pun intended if that's your vision of him if he's the most astute critic of what you consider the current system which is capitalism i me and you may not call this exactly capitalism but if he's the most astute and influential critic in history of the most dominant economic system in history maybe he's not an ordinary intellectual so he says he should he should rejoin the community of ordinary intellectuals considered as neither the terrifying harbinger of social upheaval nor a secular pope with the eternally correct description of all human society well here's the thing right so here's what i already have a major problem with this sentence okay so he says he should be considered as neither the terrifying the terrifying harbinger my saying that word right harbinger i think i am considered as neither the terrifying harbinger of social upheaval nor a secular pope with eternally corrupt eternally correct description of all human society now d do you already see rob what my problem with that is is your posing these two things as if they're both ridiculous right i hate when people just play this game of i'll just be in the middle and therefore i gotta be right because there's the extreme over here in the extreme over here only here's the problem he was a terrifying harbinger of social upheaval that's not an unrealistic thing for somebody to be and if somebody comes up with a philosophy that leads to the most disastrous governments in human history that's a fair.

"My more advanced history class in high school i think i was in eleventh grade i believe and my history teacher at the time ms kassovitz i believe was her name and she i remember her saying that she was very sympathetic to karl marx because he was just such a great guy and i just i remember the emotional kind of look on her face where she went you know i think karl marx is just a really great guy and he saw suffering in the world and really wanted to solve this problem and he got some things right and some things wrong and i think that's kind of very much the modern academic view of karl marx and it's there there's a reason why there's still the articles like the ones we're going to jump into are still written and i'm not going to spend a lot of time going over karl marx the person i'm really just going to deal with his philosophy in this episode but if you care to go look into karl marx the person at all not such a great guy was not a wonderful person i i don't know much about them can we get the the evil highlights well he's a guy who you know like left his wife destitute he never worked a day in his life for for somebody who said that he you know who's the champion of the workers never really believed in work and he basically just fucking mooched off of other people for his entire life and not like the way we do it without like in a bad way it's funny because when you say that way it's like all right i get why people like this.

"Despite that karl marx became a figure so wellknown that his name marks history books for round the world and you would be hard pressed to find someone who didn't at least have a vague idea of who he was so what exactly was at the karl marx did to make himself so wellknown and how did he come up with these so called crazy ideas that turned into the political theory known as communism it sometimes hard to imagine such a learned scholar as an immature kit but like all great figures marks did not simply pop into existence with all of his revolutionary thoughts and ideas intact just as he would become a philosopher who others which studying emulate he too was influenced by the revolutionaries of the 1800s but even the four marks was pining after revolutionaries marks was perhaps unknowingly being influenced by his childhood teachers karl marx was born on may fifth 18 18 intrigue here uh city in prussia though little is known of marxist childhood we do know that until high school marks was homeschool by his father this in itself is pretty fascinating as his father was a highly educated jewish lawyer who drew influence from enlightenment thinkers like content voltaire philosophers who supported liberal ideas including constitutional governance and religious tolerance ideas that were in short supply in the early 1800s when marks was growing up in fact marks his father was even forced to convert from judaeism to lutheranism and changes name to avoid losing his job in a antisemitic dominantly christian state some theorized that rampant antisemitism factored prominently into karl marx his passion for social reform but it wasn't just his father that influenced marks in his formative years.
