Trump Lifted the Veil on Conservatives With Populism
"When. We're talking about joe biden and trump and the future. It seems to me that what what trump did is he sort of. Lifted the veil. We can all now see who the neocons are what the deep state is and it strikes me that your average american The folks as bill would call them. They will no longer put up with Whether it's john mccain or lindsey graham or whatever in other words the and those aren't the worst but but the rhinos who have been kind of playing the game over the decades trump basically destroyed that. And i think american people. Think if you're not going to be rhonda santa's if you're not going to be heroic And speak out against this. we're done. we're not interested in you anymore. So i really do. Think that trump On the populace level make america great Again he really changed things fundamentally so that we could never go to nikki haley or someone or or a mike. Pence populism is polarizing and. That's not a negative thing to say. Populism makes americans especially politicians take sides and would populism does is choose a spotlight on reality or we getting ripped off by china. Is the border secure. Our wages going up is their crime.

Are the people of america being respected and trump. Put that out there in a way that was blunt and for a lot of politicians. That was scary.

This week, it announced that producer Mike Richards will be the main host and actress Mayan Bialik will host a special episodes. But many fans were like Mm.

How did jeopardy goes so out of its way Not to give llevar a job burden has been gracious tweeting.

Healing Hormone Imbalance (Without Hormone Replacement) With Dr. Deb Matthew
"After matthew. I'm excited to have you on this day. In if you put it was a little bit of background about you are and what got you doing the work. You're doing sure thanks for having me. It's great to be here when i first graduated from medical school. I actually trained as a pediatrician. And i was perfectly happy thinking that i knew everything you know. They taught me everything. I needed a medical school in my own personal life. I didn't feel good. I was exhausted like the most important task of my day was to find a way to have a nap nan. I was irritable. I was flying off the handle at my kids. My poor is the one that bore the brunt of my wicked witch of the west impersonation. He just really honestly didn't know what to do with me. Half the time. And i knew that something was wrong like i knew that how i felt wasn't normal but nothing in my medical training helped me to really understand what was wrong with me. I wasn't depressed but yet something was wrong. And as my husband came across a book that was written by suzanne somers and it was called the sexy years and when he kind of flipped through that book he saw all kinds of things that reminded him of me and he brought the book home and my first reaction was like. You've got to be kidding me. Suzanne somers like christy snow thigh master. But i knew that we had a problem. It was affecting our marriage. It was affecting my kids. It was affecting my job at work and so i read the book and i gotta tell you that book has completely changed my entire life because when i read the stories of the women in the book who were just like me and how much better. They felt when they got their hormones back in balanced. It really allowed me to open my mind and allowed me to find that there were places that i could go to learn this whole new approach to health and wellness that i didn't even know existed and so as a result i was able to get my energy back. Mccain's got their mom back. My husband got his wife back. I got my life back. But i could not go back to what i was doing before just spending my whole day. Writing prescriptions because most of the time those prescriptions are of just putting a band aid on your symptoms. They're not really getting to the root cause of the problem and making people well.

"The idea that you can ask yourself questions. That provoke thought. This is a unique thing that humans can do. We can inspect ourselves we're aware of our own selves. And what that means is that we can in a way escape ourselves and work on our own improvement. We can practice. This is one of the most important things that humans can do. Most other animals do accidentally the process of practicing for most animals is to find some kind of reward and provided based on particular actions and as the animal improves at this particular actions. They get rewarded more and over time you know. The mechanisms have to change to keep the animal motivated. It's important to understand this picture.

Elise Stefanik: From Republican Moderate to Trump Favourite
"Coming leadership ouster of liz. Cheney is about much more than the sacking of the number three house republican it is an unconditional surrender by one of our two major political parties to former president trump. And his big lie that the twenty twenty election was somehow stolen. Cheney's crime is not that she isn't conservative. It's that she's not conservative as defined by today's republican party which apparently means unquestioning loyalty to the defeated former president. She stands accused of telling the truth that the election was not stolen and for criticizing trump citing the january six capital interaction. This episode is just the latest chapter in the party's purging of its legacy the bushes the mccain's the romney's and now the chains names that appeared on eight of nine presidential tickets for one thousand nine hundred eighty two thousand twelve all now. Essentially excommunicated by the party's base and leadership and for one reason only the message go along with donald trump and his lies or just go away. Will this help. Republican election prospects in the short term. Perhaps but what does it mean for. Democracy when a great political institution refuses to accept free and fair election. Results and rejects. Its own who choose principle over party. I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair congresswoman lizzie cheney facing a vote as soon as wednesday to ouster from leadership after criticism of donald. Trump's big lie at the election was stolen and his role in the capital attack. We will not forget what happened on january six and that the single greatest threat to our republic is a president who would put his own self interest above the constitution sherry me writing in the washington post this week. The question before us now is whether we will join trump's crusade to de-legitimize and undo the legal outcome of the twenty twenty election. The house republican leaders have answered. That question you know i. I've lost confidence boosting. New york's elise stefanik who trump has endorsed. My vision is to run with support from the president. What they're saying is if you don't go along with the big lie. You basically need to go so phonic voted with president trump. Just seventy eight percent of the time. Criticizing is border wall opposing him on nafta and trade even voting against his signature. Twenty seventeen tax cuts. Cheney voted with trump ninety three percent of the time once trump critic has been insulting women stefanik became a high profile trump defender during his first impeachment when she opens that mouth you at killing them. Elise trump meanwhile has denounced cheney unremittingly. This week he called her a warmongering fool who has no business and republican party leadership. The good news is in her state.

"mccain" Discussed on Skullduggery
"We now have with US Mark Salter, longtime aide to Senator John, McCain and author of the new book about McCain The luckiest man John Welcome to skulduggery nicer have neon. So just fascinating and moving portrait of your old boss and colleague and Co author Senator McCain There's to talk about here but I guess. Given that we're in the closing days of presidential election, the McCain Donald Trump relationship or lack of relationship is something that obviously leaps out and we all remember but you've captured it quite brilliantly in this book. What do you? Your. Old Friend and colleague. John McCain would be saying right now about the election or in our. He didn't vote for trump last time and there's actually another. Trump isn't the kind of guy that improves longer acquaintance and. So I think I assume you'd be putting. All Joe Biden. In would make no bones about would be mike gas but I can't. I can't say for certain. I'm I can't say certainly wouldn't be voting for trump but do you think publicly he would be endorsing Biden That's a good question. You didn't say who he voted for in two thousand sixteen the said I'm not going trump that's a good question I kinda think you would recognized. Not. Long before he died, he authorized a statement and his name was harshest statement. I think he's ever made a US president which came in reaction to the Helsinki Summit when trump took the word Putin over our inventory services, he was appalled by that and trump's got worse. It's gotten worse in I'd like to think he. As his widow did that he would make clear that they're just really two choices in this election it's binary choice and donald trump is hurting this country badly the clear and present danger and I would but I can't. I've sort of been reluctant to say I know two, hundred, hundred, hundred percents certitude that he would I don't know that but I'd like to thank you would back in two thousand, sixteen I, think you got a call from him. When he he asked you to write up a statement after trump criticized the confirmation with gold star family and as a really strong. Statement, what he asked you to do was to say at the end of that that he was withdrawing his support for Donald, trump. And in the end he changed his mind. He didn't do that. What was what do you think was the the thought process there for him while he was genuinely outraged obviously, you can imagine the Gut guy you know from his family, a career military officer from a family of career military officers. In the amount of time he spent in the company of American. Soldiers. he was Paul by the way trump tweeted the family and he was prepared to unendorse. He called me I was on my way back from a trip about a six hour drive from from the New Hampshire Vermont order to main message I. got you gotTa. Wait till I get home. It'll be a few hours and told me what he wanted me to say and when I got back. He said other adviser said advised him no, you're the party's nominee in two, thousand and eight. You've got a responsibility. Let's not get in this guy's way or something to that effect, and he also he had a somewhat competitive primary zone that it wasn't for another couple of weeks. I think and they they factored that into their reasoning to he was unhappy that he did in it bothered him and bothered him and bother them. So when they access Hollywood tape, came out, I, think the news has been like thirty seconds go on for thirty seconds. I got a call from I'm on endorsing. And the funniest part was I you Lindsey or somebody gave him give trump. McCain's phone number. And after he was inaugurated and he called McCain on the cell phone. And litigated the whole on endorsement you know their views trying to get McCain to apologize or something he said now looking apologize for he kept going at him over the content of the way he treated the count family was wrong. He goes. Well, that's not why you on endorse me your. And unendorse me over that access Hollywood tape and he goes that's what I really unendorse your you know. One of the moments that I think for a lot of Americans was sort of the first time in some ways that people sort of saw sort of how outrageous donald trump could be and mean-spirited was I came on Morning Joe I remember watching it live I. Thank was where he attacked McCain and and said I don't remember the exact quote but it was basically I like people who didn't get captured. What was McCain's reaction to that? You know he was. Unruffled by it to be honest with you I got worked up about it both McCain and I have fought tempers and. And I think I called him on the phone and you know? That son of a bitch you know. McCain's comedown goes through what long people are going to be talking about what a war here I am that's not my problem. That's his problem. He, never he never let that stuff get tune but boy. That got them. Yeah. But you know look on so many levels McCain his life, his career he's the anti-trump. The. Duty Patriotism Loyalty Service to your country, all the values that he embodied in so many ways. He was the antithesis of trump and I didn't realize this but his disdain for trump goes way back long before he was a presidential candidate or presence of the Republican, Party goes back to hearings when McCain was in the house about Indian casinos. McKell that story it goes back to the early nineties became was in the Senate he was in the Senate he was a defender of the tribes rights to have to see. They'll conceit casinos, reservations, and trump at that time was busy bankrupting a couple of casinos in Atlantic city and was going to testify at a house in the you know the I gotTa Select Committee. In the House I think it's a subcommittee, the Interior Committee I'm getting very arcane. I'm like a like an all Jauregui Gad's. They were having a hearing on. Indian. Gaming and trump was testifying Rhonda testify against it because at that point, it was competition for his his casinos and McCain went over to fight to defend it and trump was waiting apparently wanted to talk to them or lobbying from you issue. So I of beckoning, McCain's McCain walks into the hearing room and making a bunch of noise and became McCain you know McCain's walls Mafa keeps walking and then finally trump bells across the room I gave money to your Camp Hey. Dot says see what that will get you. Sick but you know. You, know he looked at him like we all looked at him in kind of a tabloid clowns from New York in. Central People shouldn't take seriously I don't think it was any different a different degree of disdain for him than most people probably had for trump at the time other than I. Guess the I guess unbeknownst I I never watched a reality show in my life I guess it missed the whole celebrity apprentice thing where he built up some sort of fan base to help them become president united. States. But. I don't think. McCain. WAS A. Watch that show either so. So. Let me ask you about something that happened at the trump did after McCain had died we've spent. A couple of hundred hours probably on this podcast talking about trump's impeachment and I think you said that Ukraine was was McCain's biggest 'cause overseas the democratic reform movement. He went there with Chris Senator Chris Murphy he was there for the the my don protests he met with Yana Kovic and I know that you in the book refrained from speaking on his behalf in absentia but you do lay out sort of I. Think what you call the pertinent facts which I think would allow readers to draw some conclusions about how McCain would have felt about the president of the United. States. Essentially extorting Ukraine by withholding military assistance to get his friend. Joe. Biden investigated. So just tell us what were those pertinent Were two I think McCain was a great Here's a humanitarian and he was a great one for lending..

You had an opportunity to play a role in in two thousand five in part of the war on terror. The the so-called black sites were still operating the Interrogation techniques that the United States us involved things like waterboarding and slamming people on the walls and stress positions and sleep deprivation forced nudity all these things that combination and I had had a little inkling that the black sites existed for my time in the NFC is clear here to me when I started working for Senator McCain that. He didn't know the first thing about this. He had been on the Armed Services Committee but not on. The Intelligence Committee. Hadn't been briefed on these things and then Aba grape happened happened where these pictures of Iraqi detainees piled up and mistreated really went viral. The army confiscated some sixty pictures of Iraqi prisoners being mistreated and in many of the pictures Americans. Both men and women are laughing posing pointing are giving a thumbs up up the result. Six Americans are being court martialled and I'd only been working for Senator McCain for literally a couple of months and I and I remember thinking to myself. I wonder how this guy is going to react to this because on the one hand I could see him saying that torture. That's not torture. You WanNa hear torture. I was tied to the ceiling for days on end. I was at my limbs broken. Can you also other kinds of stuff and as it turned out he was even more appalled and I was he just said this is UNAMERICAN. This is a grave violation of the values. We hold Oh dear certainly of the Geneva Conventions of our international obligations and this can't stand. I'm gravely concerned that many Americans. We'll have the same impulse as I did when I saw this picture. And that's to turn away from them and we risk losing public support for this conflict flicked as Americans turned away from the Vietnam War. They may turn away from this one sector. I'd like to know what were the instructions shins to the guards that is what the An investigation that. I've indicated has been undertaken but but Mrs Jerry Berman very simple straightforward question. Well the chief of staff of the army can tell you. The guards cards are trained to guard. People they're not trained to interrogate. They're not and it wasn't just Abbott Grade. It was the broader set of it was essentially the use of torture as an an interrogation technique. This is a very very terrible time for America. These young people who are serving are the best they're wonderful and they are being besmirched by The actions of a few I believe. And so it took some time for Senator McCain and Senator Lindsey Graham and Senator John Warner to kind of figure out what they wanted to do and I was very involved in that process and ultimately they introduce under Senator McCain's leadership will was ultimately called the detainee treatment act which required among other things anybody in a department offence facility to be interrogated only in accordance with the manual. That was already in place. Saying what you could do. You couldn't do and anybody who was in some other detention. CIA or something like that. Could not be subjected to cruel inhumane integrating treatment and I think that this will help us enormously and winning the war for the hearts and minds of people throughout the world in the war on terror. This was a major major fight with the Bush administration and with some Republicans in Congress and Senator McCain was willing to accept whatever the political consequences were in order to push this ultimately it did pass. It wasn't acted in the law and it changed inched overnight. The practices that were being conducted.

"Bill. Ayers of the weather underground from the sixties McCain, quote, the American people know, a radical when they hear it and John McCain is not the candidate in this election. They should be concerned about. He said the American black guy said, I don't know why you're doing that boss rose waste. Doing Trump McCain's boy, I don't have a John McCain Ross Perot, though, John McCain Saint me. He said the American people had to know the full extent of Obama's relationship with Ayers, the McCain campaign contacted a man whose home had been blown up back in the day and the weather ground was suspected. Yeah. It was that guy. He bought a house. The man put out a statement, quote, Barack Obama's friend tried to kill my family. My God, dude. I mean, can we? The maverick liberal friend. John McCain, the campaign sent out flyers with mugshots of heirs and the words terrorist radical friend of Obama. Rallies. Now at speakers saying Obama's middle name or as John said, quote, it will never happen again. From an ad quote. Think about how you feel an remember fifth. If you see the news that Bracco Saint Obama is president of the United States. Ads as quote who is Brock Obama and reminded the audience of terrorist connections. One out quote how dangerous. Sure, these ideas have been around for a while and the crazy corners of the right wing internet. But now GOP presidential candidate was saying them and giving them credence. John McCain was legitimising the right wing. Fringe madness. Just kind of lifting the lid on Pandora's box Gentil bit now in John took the stage people yelled out treason trader terrorists off with his head one woman yelled out quote. He's a bomb at a bomb Obama. Yeah, he's going to go in and blow up the country. He's going to take over the White House and destroyed the country. Yeah. At a rally Palin blamed Katy Kirk for making her look stupid and the crowd turned on the press screaming a reporters. Okay. And a camera crew. The sound man was black a man yelled, quote, a racial epithets at him and said, quote, sit down boy, they wore a Syrah Khuda t shirts Palin said Obama's part of a quote group that launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our US capital. I mean, this a man in the audience yelled, quote, kill him home. Like, she did not respond and went on quote, a Bama doesn't like American soldiers. Still a Bama one. It was not close. Yes. But we'll put a pin in this rhetoric. Well, the damage was done wasn't it. The path was laid. This was the first time people saw the right riled up, and what will become normal under Trump. John's campaign was literally the path for Trump John remained a Senator who went back to his normal maverick ways. On a night in August two thousand nine he tweeted quote late evening with Colonel Qaddafi at his ranch in Libya. Interesting meeting with an interesting man, he left out that he'd offered to sell weapons to Qaddafi and insured him. The US wanted to provide Libya with let weapons for Security John was reelected in November his fifth full term in the Senate less than two years later as the spring moved to Libya in two thousand eleven John enthusiastically supported removing a guy named Qaddafi from power isn't that his buddy he made numerous visits to rebel strongholds. And then this led to a NATO back. No fly zone. A bombing campaign eventually his rebel friends sodomized Qaddafi to death in the streets. Libya would become one of those images that just sticks with these not great Libby would become a bastion of extremism with open slave markets that operate today..

"No, I would hope not in February two thousand John dropped out of the Republican race, George W Bush had one and he'd played dirty. He pushed the idea that Bridget. Was John McCain's quote black love child who Bush Bush that Bridget the Bush campaign. Oh, secretly. Robo calls things like out the word that it was John McCain's black club child. Okay. Next. John said, he would take the he's done that was banned of his election. He lost that state. And then he was out. Also, just a great detail to America's open mindedness, and that's Karl rove who was behind that. And if you want you can see masterclass with way back. Having a good talk. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Next. John said he would take the government back from big ninety to be here. Yeah. Because I'm gonna crush you at the end of it. It get so much worse. Next Johnson who would take the government back from big money special interests. A nonpartisan nonprofit organization called the reform institute was created well things that are always named stuff. Like that are always on the open John was the honorary chair, the no take money group the money came from a formal Merrill Lynch CEO, which is the best way to get reform. Yeah. No for sure as a nonprofit, the reform institute could take unlimited unregulated donations. That John's pack could not take strategy strangely all the institutes political positions. Nonpartisan aligned exactly with John McCain's the institute paid John for public appearances his campaign manager was president and made a four hundred thousand three years the reform institute used the same office space as McCain's pack his reelection committee and a lobbying firm that he used named Davis. Manafort. There's there's a name. Million between nineteen Ninety-seven and June two thousand six John collected two point six million from telecommunications media and tech firms in return he wrote letters to the FCC for those companies twice the reform institute solicited hundred thousand from cable vision after the CO testified in front of John's Senate Commerce Committee. What does that mean? Exactly. It means that he after the fucking guy went and testified John grill him, and then he'd be like, hey, man, we can actually make this work. John left the reform student two thousand and five but its goals stayed aligned with his about the reform institute, the chair of the Federal Election Commission said quote appearance of corruption. Anyone? Wow. Is he kinda like he went sort of real sassy? Conflict of interest party of McCain. Hello. And yet John's image remained the opposite. He was the maverick. He was a moderate and he cared about finance reform in two thousand and one he said, quote as long as the wealthiest Americans and the richest is organized interests can make these six and seven figure donations to political parties and gain the special access to power that such generosity confers on the donor. Most Americans will dismiss the most virtuous politicians claim of patriotism, but that that's what he's doing is what he's what he's doing. Right. John sponsored the bipartisan campaign reform act and why. Bipartisan also knows the McCain Feingold back. It was to curb soft money. Which is what that fucking institute is. Let him police. It would you. Nine eleven came. Finally, Phil good moment. John then took the lead in pushing for war with. Everyone, quote, there's other organizations besides Mr Ben Laden who are bent on destruction of the United States isn't just Afghanistan. We're talking about Syria, Iraq, Iran, perhaps, North Korea, Libya and others. He wants to go to war with everyone and others leaves a pretty open, France Ireland. He told Jay Leno some other countries possibly Iraq, Iran, Syria, had aided bin Laden after the anthrax attacks in America. He told David Letterman that quote, we'll do fine in Afghanistan. Why is he just doing the late night run certain like everybody loves him? Yeah. Okay. But he's still liberals still it's like a weird like, but everybody. So that's the thing about McCain. He's not like other senators. He always on those shows, he's constantly doing this. We'll do fine Afghantistan. The second phase is Iraq some of those anthrax may and I is may have come from Iraq. It didn't. Larry king.

The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great. George W Bush pay tribute to his courage and honesty. He lived by a set of public virtues that brought strengthen purpose to his life and to his country. He was courageous with a Kurds at writing his captors and inspired his countrymen. He was honest, no matter whom it offended presidents were not spared. He was honorable, always, recognizing that his opponents were still patriots in human beings. He loved freedom with the passion of a man who knew it's absence. He respected the dignity inherent in every life addicted t. that does not stop at borders and cannot be a raised by dictators. Grabs above all John detested, the abuse of power, the ruck Obama who defeated Senator McCain into two thousand eight presidential election, spoke of his courage and sense of mischief cancer did not scary. And he would maintain that buoyant spirit to very end too stubborn still. Opinionated as ever. Fiercely devoted to his friends and most of all to his family. It showed his irreverence. The sense of humor. Little bit of a mischievous streak after all, what better way to get a last left and to make George is say, nice things about him to a national audience. And we could singer who was national security adviser during the Vietnam war praised John McCain for his faith in America and his instinctive sense of duty. Will be lonely without John McCain. He's he buildings is facing America and his instinctive sense of moral duty. None of us will ever forget how even in putting John has stowed on us a much-needed moment of unity and dated Newt faith in depressive Bility's of America. Our Washington correspondent Kris Buckler watched the service, you know, making enemies is a part of politics. You're never really have opponents. You're inevitably end up in Roy's and conflicts. But the truth is, is that Joe McCain was someone he money to reach out to both sides of America's divide on there is a big political divide here, props, even more so than the time whenever he was running for president of looking back at some of those presidential debates. Whenever he spoke with Barak Obama and the tone on the rhetoric is very different of a very different time on props, Joan McCain was of a different era of politics. But what struck me today from the service would just how many people you saw from both sides of that divide. You had a democrat president, you had a Republican president both standing, both giving tributes in a really heartfelt way. They saw John McCain as a patriot? Yes, he was a maverick. Yes. He could be still done, but he was also someone that they could regards a friend despite whatever political differences they hard. And they told some really touching very motive stories about the relationship with the man. It's also hard to ignore the fact that the current President Donald Trump was not invited at all, and he did feel however, if he was alluded to on more than one occasion. Yeah. And I think certainly, if you listened to make an McCain's speech at you'll McCain's daughter mid very clear that she was talking. A by Donald Trump, even referencing the make America. Great. Again, slogan that Donald Trump uses. So often, there's new lights that the two men did not see eye-to-eye that they saw each other as really not helpful to politics and Donald Trump on times made that personal, which the family were deeply upset about particularly referencing the fights that he was captured 'em as he was shot down over Hanoi and then interrogated and tortured for a number of years that Donald Trump said, didn't make him a war hero words which truly stung with the McCain family. I also think it was a sign of Donald Trump's own personal props disrespect that during this, the service taking place, he specifically was tweeting about trade deals, a not Joe McCain's death, and indeed troubling to his golf course. It gives you a sense that the two men never came together even death, Chris Buckler in Washington. It's been another day of protest in the German city of Chemnitz..

"He was disinvited from John McCain, one of John McCain's final, you know, in the in the final months of his life, there were news stories, but how, yeah, you know him and his wife, Cindy McCain, you know, let it be known that, hey, Trump don't come to my funeral. So it's it's been sort of an awkward week in terms of memorialize McCain, because usually think about it. It's like this sort of big Republican polish. Fission dies. And you'd think that like the, I mean, the current president is a Republican. Normally, there would be if you think back to like when Reagan died right. Bush was president when Reagan died. And so there's this sense in which the party sort of rallies behind the legacy of this crucial figure and it's party. Whereas meanwhile, because Trump and McCain had this feud Trump is in this awkward position where he just clearly does not wanna talk about McCain a lot, and it kind of makes Trump look weak because even though Trump obviously survives McCain and he's the most powerful Republican in the world. He also, there's this weird air Trump sort of resisting celebrating McCain that just makes him look like a dip shit or sore loser, whatever you wanna call them, especially as all these other people, including Brock Obama who's not even Republican as of emerging to pay tribute to Kane. Yeah, it's been interesting to see. Trump be silence on something. It's also I don't know. I've been having this weird sensation because Trump Nuys sort of responded to McCain's death in the same way, which I feel very uncomfortable. When I, whenever I realized that me and Trump are behaving the same way, like I was not a fan of John McCain, but I just I didn't really, I didn't. I haven't been saying anything about his death because I just felt like I didn't everything to add. Trump has been doing the same thing. Like the silence on his end has been interesting, and then the whole flag debacle is another thing like people were mad that the White House didn't properly display the flag at half mast for long enough. I honestly thought that was a little overblown. I think the half mask thing is like a super weird tradition, but yet it's been, I don't know. I've been sort of struggling with like how to process McCain's death. I was talking to a little bit about this earlier, but like it it feels very significant because it does feel like the death of type of politician in addition to an individual, he was known as the maverick, but he also in many ways, represented the sort of. Fairly standard, moderate Republican, domestically, I guess, very warmongering Republican in in foreign affairs, but you represented the strain of Republican that seems to be a dying breed part of generation. These weird McCain is we're generation right because in terms of his political career Rayleigh he's he's only he's only Senator since the late eighties. So there's a sense in which like he had a long Senate career, but he's not, you know, it's not like he some old school like Nick zone, Nick Sonia era, Senator who late. He, I lived to an old age and he has a military is a famous military career that produces political career, but McCain is a strange example of when you talk about him being a certain kind of politician, it's not even purely because of the time he entered the Senate or the time he entered the Republican party. I think it actually really just has a lot to do with his background like think about it. A lot of it is tied up in the fact that he fought in Vietnam and is generally lake celebrated as a war hero. And so that that underscores why a fight over how long the White House wanted to fly the US flag at half mast would be sailing in a way that it might not be quite a salient with any other Senator right?.

"So anyway, it was interesting moment for me to just say something that's a sort of separate issue, but to say something that's even perceived a slightly negative about John McCain, that he taps there Palin abused vice presidential candidate, and it's also like a deeply weird phenomenon that all of the encomia of John McCain were based in this idea that, oh, his passing, you know what you were saying earlier, lower that his passing represents an era of politicians of their. Publican party that has passed, and we know that it's passed because of Donald Trump, and this is just a perfect symbol of that. The praise is dependent on the idea that the McCain ultimately lost right, but he lost the battle. The Republican party should be. And when you point out that actually John McCain did something, it wouldn't have happened without him that like nobody. It wasn't like Sarah Palin was inevitable pick for vice president and that had a pretty direct line to the conflict of celebrity and personal brand and right. Weighing culture warrior that like that is seen as a knock on him to actually say. He ended up having influence that at least one decision he made helped create the Republican exist today. No. And wanted to hear that weekend probably ever. But yeah, that there is the separation of the sort of John McCain is metaphor for something America has lost, and then there's the literal conversation about John McCain about. Hey, he picks Palin and you know, he really missed his moment to be a steward or something bigger in the aftermath of the election. So there's that to me that just is this kind of moment ran of, yeah. Are we talking about John McCain in a sort of abstract way? Or we talking about the literal John McCain, because if you get into the littoral John McCain and really wanna look at his actual legacy, there's a large constituency for not doing that. And with that, we'll take another break and say, say for well to Laura gonna sit around and talk about Bing methodology. All right. I'll see you guys later. Thank you. Pay listeners.

"But at the same time, you would also acknowledge that like these people really were bitter political rivals, like Donald Trump and John McCain, the had their moments of disagreement. They had their moments of tough words for. In another McCain's dissents from the Trump administration were not meaningless. But at the same time, novel Trump talks about Donald Trump's achievements and he brags about himself. He talks about the tax cut Bill. He passed and John McCain voted for that. He talks about all the judges whose gotten confirmed and John McCain voted for all those judges. He talks about the big increase in defense spending. John McCain was the lead author of that big increase in defense spending, and it's not like John McCain, like sold out and became a Trump Bhatt, but it's like McCain and Trump both converged on a large, you draw the vendetta grams of like stuff. John McCain is into stuff. Donald Trump is into stuff. Paul Ryan is into and those are all somewhat different circles. But they have like a big piece of overlapping territory, which is why they are all influential Republican party politicians. And like Trump's inability to even recognize like that. There's an. Aspect of life where it's like, sometimes you have to pretend to like people who don't really like sometimes you'd say nice things that you don't really mean. But then there's another thing where it's like, okay, just stop like think sincerely, is there something I do believe that I can say that is nice about this person and like for Donald Trump and John McCain, there really should be like they agreed on many things. John McCain voted solid Republican for like all kinds of Donald Trump stuff. He served his country with honor. It's like the most obvious nice thing you can say about John McCain, and it's like Trump's desire to wage this feud like after McCain's death, when there wasn't even that much to it is like to me, it's like the kind of thing is really unnerve ING about the Trump era aids. So odd. It's politically counterproductive. I think in an obvious way like Trump's team didn't seem to think this was a good. Everybody was very uncomfortable all day with this like weird situation and it's like, I'm going to say like, we'll we're a hop skip and jump from like mishandling the flags to global thermonuclear war. But it's like, what is the decision making process? It's it's so different from like he has his tax ideas. I don't agree with to like he has said he has nobody agrees with and yet cannot be compelled to just like behave in rational way. I mean, I find this fascinating because John McCain is famous for being a stiff necked, like very stubborn, various acids person who often bears grudges against people for for what he perceives his character flaws on that on their part that aren't necessarily related to policy. Like before John McCain was Thornton. Donald Trump side. He was thorn Iraq Obama side before he was Thorin. Barack Obama's III was a thorn in George Bush's side like it is a hater. Yeah, he was. He was a certainly strong personality and. That's kind of that was the root of a lot of the media darling ship was this idea that he was a maverick that he was willing to say, things that he was willing to call out people whether or not they were members of his own party when they disagreed within that was seen as a as a statement of him being principled rather than being like a stubborn SOB. So in that regard, it's kind of interesting that McCain is being seen as the kind of norm that has passed away of collegiality when in fact, it's not that McCain was collegial, but that he understood that people on the opposing side could also be good friends that like he did trust people even where he may not have agreed. You know that he kept a very close friendship with Lindsey, Graham till the day key died as far as we know. And Lindsey, Graham had a very different approach to Donald Trump that he actually was willing to work with people who he didn't necessarily trust in the Democratic Party on unvarying issues that Russ Feingold is going to be a pallbearer at his funeral because they worked together on campaign finance reform and apparently were like super close after that. It's those. Those kinds of things that Donald Trump doesn't appear to have not because Donald Trump is often stiff, necked and stubborn..

"This is why we have norms. Right? Like I feel like the big question. That this whole saga has raised for me is we know that Donald Trump is particularly dismissive of you can't do that because it's that's not the way it's done. There are cases in which the norms that he is blowing up our these very old school Washington, you know, we all play nice with each other rural chummy. The substance of politics isn't going to interfere with our relationships. A thing that can often diminish the real life consequences of politics and policy for people. And I think all of us at the state will probably have different assessments of how good it is to break some of those down to the fact is that he's barreling through them and the reason that you have things like that is because if people are forced to make their own decisions on a case by case basis, it's going to depend on their temperament and someone like Donald Trump who never sees any need to show any respect to anybody unless he thinks he can get something out of them is just going to refuse. If you don't have a norm of. Of, you know, we say nice things about people who are dead, even if we disagree with them. If you don't have a norm of when a sitting Senator dis whether or not the White House loved that sitting Senator, they order the flags to half like you take it away. And yes, some people are going to make a reason to inform decision, and you know, have lengthy podcast discussions about whether John McCain's legacy deserves the amount of phrase that was poured on him over the weekend, but some people are Donald Trump. Yeah. And you kind of do broader norms lingering. I think to your point to Dr I agree with norms. I also think I also went through this journey of how I feel about these ways of these waves of praise for John McCain in this almost reflexive way. And I actually have come to a different feeling about it more broadly of setting aside the details of any reporter or setting. This is of the details of the John McCain temper tantrum. It's not surprising to me that in this. Moment when we do have a president who is rejecting norms and is the kind of president who will say. I refuse to say something nice about a war hero that is John McCain, who passed away that I think the emotional response as much as the fact that John McCain is a, he's always been a media darling, but in this case, losing John McCain with something bigger in this moment where we have this really sort of nasty person in the White House, whether or not John McCain lived up to his own rhetoric of bipartisanship and collegiality, and whether he actually fulfilled those things we can talk about. But the way he conducted himself made people believe in a version of politics that I think we used to aspire too again, whether or not it was real or whether or not America ever did that. He stood there and said, we can come together and that we are battles of ideas and that we wanna do the right thing and we can do it together. And that was an aspirational. Vision of America. When that a think the public was invested in that is gone and McCain is gone, but it's really something bigger about this loss and the contrast between losing McCain and Trump's reaction to it, I think is part of this emotional moment yet. But just to me part of Russo vexing about Trump's pettiness on this point is that it's not as if Donald Trump and John McCain were like mortal political enemies. You know, like if Hillary Clinton were to pass away, would expect a normal president to a defeated her even in a hard-fought election to say something nice and to be respectful of the dead and of someone who is important too many Americans..

"So I've been angry because we have somebody in the Oval Office who has really denigrated the office of the presidency. His dishonesty is unethical doesn't have principles, and I am very concerned though more than angry on worried because now we are in a crisis, and unfortunately, the Republicans, John McCain, a national treasure in hero. Thoughts and prayers go out to Kane is family. I got into some real Donnybrook fights with John McCain over policy. I never once questioned his integrity and his interest in doing what is best for this country. But since John McCain has left the hill, the Republicans spines have gone with them and there needs to be some reckoning and the Republican party that we can't allow this to go on. And we have an election coming up and I'm trying to convince people and it's hard because you know a lot of us in the past. This is a very important election and blah, blah, blah. This is the one I think we in a crisis that is the third grade crisis in American history more than the Russian. I, of course, the revolutionary war, whether we would even become a country. Then the civil war people usually say than the depression. I don't think the depression. Got it. What is most fundamental about this country was economic, but I don't think it's threatened the rule of law as we all right, let's would you rank. No. How do you even take that apart? This is worse than the great depression. People fucking starving. This is worse. This is worse than that, man. This is the great crisis is that Donald Trump is fucking questioning the CI my God and just think about the mentality, right. And this is the fucking gangster government killer mentality where you'd say someone like John McCain, John McCain. Now, me and him may have disagreed all the time, but I always knew he was a great guy like he may have thought we should invade a country where I think we should just use targeted drone strikes. But at the end of the day, I knew John McCain was a good man. Put Donald Trump went and tried to make peace with Russia. I mean, that's really what's being said here. Right? That's that is what he's saying. John McCain, the man who never saw war. He didn't wanna fight and the head of the CIA who armed Al Qaeda, which the branch of l. news that turned into ISIS and really they were already ISIS, but whatever that's beside the point. The guy who supported ISIS has just between John McCain and John Brennan, the amount of dead people that are on there, the amount of blood that's on their hands. It would probably take a long time to actually tally it up, but it's a lot..

"And I've seen a lot of people who are on our side politically, who are who are taking pleasure in him dying. And you know, that's just not my take on the whole thing. It much in the same way. If a, if someone who is a murderer was convicted and given the death penalty, I, I don't really celebrate when they die. I, it's just kind of sad, like the whole thing's just kind of sad. It doesn't do anything to rectify the situation I, it doesn't bring anybody back from from the dead. I could understand if it was like your family member or something like that, and you were celebrating his death. I could understand if you're just a person who is really disgusted by murderer. So you celebrate his death, but that's not my feeling personally, and I. I met several times Megan McCain, John McCain's daughter, and I've done a bunch of the back when I was doing a Kennedy regularly. I did a bunch of panels with our and you know, while you know, I disagree with her about just about everything. She's. Very nice person. And I think she really loves her father and I, I tend to just, I feel bad for, you know, his family that he left behind and he's got children and grandchildren, and wife and friends and all that, I'm sure. And that sucks for all them and and you know, I do, you know. Have have sympathy for for all that stuff. Like all the family he left behind and all the people who cared about him. You know, they, you know, they're, they're very removed from the the consequences of his actions, and they probably don't see things the same way I do, and they're just they're sad to have a love, a loved one gone. So my condolences to them and. I don't know what else does that sucks. I don't take any any personal pleasure in him dying. However, I gotta say my my mic my true gut I thought might my instinct on John McCain dying is you know. As I've talked about on the podcast before, rob, I, I've come more in the last couple years to, I don't know if I'd say I've gotten more religious. That's probably not the right way to describe it, but I have come to believe in in something more believe that there is something to all of this existence to the universe to all the as you know, we started out as a radical libertarian atheist podcast here at part of the problem, and we've morphed into a more Christian conservative, moderate, you know, as radical libertarianism is that's that's just a little bit too crazy. What we're really trying to do is promote the good word of Jesus Christ here on the podcast, are we? Yes, rob, you got the memo. I'm sorry. I didn't. I didn't catch that one. I might have the wrong Email address. Well, anyway, John McCain. Claim to be a Christian. I don't know. I never trust these politicians when they tell you what they're that's part of the racket with their beliefs there. Yeah, you just you gotta do that for votes. But I, I do sincerely mean this when I said that my first thought can, I guess sure. Relief now I felt a little relief. No, I don't feel any relief because John McCain's like him being gone. It's almost like if one of the heads of a mafia family dies and you know the next guy taking over as just as much of a killer as the last guy, it's not like there's no relief really for me because I think all of his policies and beliefs will live on. It doesn't really matter really at this point, he's just kind of a symbol for those things. No, but this is what I genuinely feel. Is a sense of like, and again, I'm not like a religious person. I, I'm not. There's no organized religion that I ascribed to, but I do feel. That John McCain who himself was a Christian, I'll assume. I feel like man, he better pray. No, I understand this ironic statement, but he better pray that he's not right about that shit. Like he, he better pray that you don't actually have to go to some next life an answer for for what you did in this life, you better pray. He doesn't have to meet his maker and he doesn't have to in some way pay for the immeasurable amount of carnage that that what he that he caused like directly caused in this world..

"Morning patriot whose politics you hate. What made you want to write that piece? So there there are two pieces to it. One is simply what happens when a public figure dies today. And the debate that begins immediately in the fact that nothing is going to stop an immediate debate from happening ever. Again, you know, there's this effort when a figure on when if a prominent democrat where pass away. You'll see democratic pundits saying things like, can't we save the criticism for another day and vice versa. When a prominent Republican dies in this, is that how the world works anymore? Everything is immediate for good and for ill and the truth is it shouldn't wait because every eulogy is closing argument in one way or another. And the legacy of politician matters because the legacy of politicians shapes the views. We have of the policies that they espoused. So it is important to have that debate and because of Twitter because of social media because of television because of of technology that debate begins immediately. But at the same time, there's a kind of navel-gazing as we have public mourning about who's morning how their morning, what it means, what it doesn't mean this kind of argument, this quarrel around how we feel and how we're supposed to feel at. I found it frustrating. And what I wanted to do is just try to write down what I was thinking before. I saw what everybody else was saying, just sort of, I'll be honest that when I saw. The news that McCain had died. My immediate thought was man. Twitter is going to be a fucking night. It was my first to let me stop myself for a second. Let me stop for a second and think how do I actually feel? How do I actually feel and how I actually felt was sad. I did. I felt that that is how I felt. And as I then watched what unfolded on Twitter, I just wanted to write something down that said, this is how I'm reacting to this. This is why I think it's appropriate. I John McCain's legacy is complicated. You know, Tommy lays out all the things John McCain apologize for and it's a reminder, the John McCain got a lot of fucking stuff wrong and caused a lot of damage in his career. But at the same time, it is foolish. And I think childish and incorrect to to reduce John McCain to simply a Republican partisans simply a right wing politician. He was more than that he was special and it, and it doesn't make you a worse democrat to note that doesn't. Make you e but doesn't make you silly. It doesn't mean you're capitulating to terrible policies. It doesn't make Medicare for all less likely. You can take a moment and say, this is the good, and this is the ill and it's worth noting and appreciating someone because if you can't stop and say, John McCain is the kind of Ponant you should celebrate when he dies, then no one is and maybe that's how you feel. But you should admit that I was. I was also sad and I also I've had this respect for him ever since I, I knew about him from the before the two thousand campaign to the two thousand eight campaign to I remember when the three of us were sitting there watching the ACA repeal debate play out at the very end at seemed like McCain might vote against repeal vote against skinny repeal. And again, Twitter was a mess. Stop holding out hope for John McCain. He's not the courageous person you think is a Sorkin drama. You a liberal cowards, I thought to myself. I'm being a little, maybe won't happen ensure enough. He did. He did the right thing and look, he was not a centrist. He was not a moderate is politics were very conservative except for these moments of independence on campaign finance reform, climate change, immigration, torture, and then of course health care. But the even on those issues, he went back and forth on some of, right, right. But why we think this about John McCain is not because of his policy in the policies shirt. It was something about his character and style, and I think what you get at Tommy, it was exactly right, which is he is someone who is self aware enough to know when he was wrong, that he could make mistakes that he was fallible and he was always trying to live up to his own standards even if he failed often doing it when I think it's impossible to judge McCain in today without contrasting him to Trump and just thoughts and that..

"This is on point magnetic Roberti were talking about the life and legacy of the late Senator, John McCain, you can join us. What do you think his legacy is? And do you think there's room in American politics today for a politician with the kind of independence streak that that McCain had? And you know, McCain would be the first to say that his Lacey's complicated warts and all what are some of those words and what can we learn from them for speaking with Elaine Povich? She's author of two biographies of John McCain, John McCain in American maverick and McCain. Biography released in two thousand nine and two thousand eighteen. Those books came out now before the break we were talking about, we were just getting into the part of Senator McCain's life that really. Went on to define him his nearly five and a half years as a POW in Vietnam. So I wanna play a little bit of tape here because in nineteen sixty seven while in captivity McCain was interviewed by a French journalist knows about remember it was about at this time that the Vietnamese had discovered that John McCain's father and grandfather were admirals in the United States navy. Now, McCain later said that the interview had been staged by the North Vietnamese, they'd put him in a big bed and it looked like he was in a nice room, but that he did the interview because he believed the French journalist would take a message back to his family. So listen to this part. It's at the end of the interview. I would just like help. What. Get well. Lover. She. Now that excerpt of the interviews from the PBS Ken burns documentary, the Vietnam war. The original video was released, released by the French national archive in two thousand eight. It has a French translation dubbed over parts of what McCain said. But you can hear at the end of the interview, John McCain saying, I'd appreciate if you tell her that. That's all I have Elaine Povich toes more about this moment in John McCain's life. I mean he he had two broken arms of shattered knee. He was horribly tortured, and as we know when the North Vietnamese Vietnamese discovered that he was the son and grandson of an Admiral, they offered him early release, which he refused indeed on. It was two separate incidents. Actually, that tape was made shortly after he was shot down, his wounds had not been treated. He was in terrible pain and the North Vietnamese wanted him to on create some kind of a propaganda film where they were or he would talk about what great treatment he was getting. He refused to do that and the French journalist, when. On the North Vietnamese kept pressing him to say, things are great. Things are great. The French journalists to his credit said, I think I have all I need for this interview and ended it. So the message that McCain wanted to send to his family got out in the propaganda did not later when he was imprisoned and they said to him because you were the Admiral son, we will offer you early release. Now, the code of POW's is that the first in is the first out and no one takes place in line and McCain, of course, knew this better than anyone. And he refused to be let out ahead of time because he knew that that would be the prize for oppa Ganda Pearl for the North Vietnamese that they had given special treatment to the Admiral son and see your country doesn't care about you. And they only care about themselves that was just not John McCain. He was not going to get out are always. So he refused and you have to understand what was going on in that prison camp was beyond her. Riffing what we know of the torture and the treatment is, I'm sure only about half of what really went on there..

"One of the things people forget. One of his greatest acts of bipartisanship was at the time of the economic crisis coming back and working across the aisle with President Obama and with President Bush to pass the legislation that kept the great recession from becoming the great depression. You know, again, he was bipartisan all the time at the same time. I think Barack Obama would say he was waging one heck of a campaign again. Against him, and he fought every step of the way I didn't give up the last minute. That's just the way John McCain was, but there's always room for somebody that will take a principal fan, somebody that will lead rather than just follow blindly and somebody that will again speak to the better part of who we are a country. And I think John McCain learned that better part when he was in and he never forgot it. He never forgot the bravery, the decency, the American people and their resilience because he saw it firsthand with the people around him. He lived at himself in his own life. Well, that's Congressman, Tom Cole, a Republican Representative for Oakland Oklahoma's. Fourth district. He worked closely with Senator McCain on issues of defense in native American issues as well. Coachman coal. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you. It was a privilege to be with you. Well, let's turn now to Elaine Povich. She's a staff writer at state line initiative of the pew charitable trust, and she's. Also author of John McCain and American maverick and John McCain a biography. A couple of biographies there about the late Senator McCain, Elaine Povich, welcome to you. Hi, happy to be here. So there's so much to discuss a about the late senator's life. I'm just wondering, let me just over the big question to you. One that I put to Representative Cole here. What has American politics lost with John McCain's death. American politics has lost an independent voice. I think in in this era where there is so much of capsulize in positions and staking out positions on one side or the other following the line of the party or the party leader, John McCain was an independent voice on, yes, he was a conservative Republican and he believed in a strong defense and he believed in a strong economy, but he also staked out positions that were not exactly as congressman Cole just talked about in campaign. Finance reform that we're not nearly what the party wanted. And of course, in his famous thumbs down on the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, he certainly staked out that position. He marched to a conscience in a fought process that was his own. And I think that is all too rare in American politics today, so so take us back to the earlier part of his life before he was in politics where I mean, you've written two biographies about him. Where did that independence streak come from? Oh, he was a rebel. He was born into a navy family, his father, his grandfather were both admirals. His future was ordained from four him from the time he was born and his response to that was to rebel against it to be wild and crazy, and they called him mcnasty at school because he got into fights and scrapes, and he drove fast cars and always had a woman on his arm and accumulated enough demerits almost enough demerits to get thrown out of the naval academy, but not quite never quite went over that edge. And that tells you something about him. So it was a tough legacy for him and he warrant coin comfortably. In the beginning, he eventually grew into that legacy but circumstances and the whole POW experience on lead into his becoming who he is today, not on at not following the footsteps of his father and grandfather not becoming an Admiral. His war wounds were to difficult for him to continue as a fighter pilot, and that's what he wanted to do, but it shaped him totally from the very beginning right now, you know, we, we obviously must talk about his experience in Vietnam because that as you just said, it defines who John McCain is in the man that he became. But before we talk about his, his five and a half years as a POW in Vietnam.
