It can beyond My official structures like Musco skeletal structures like ligaments and fasha and these leaders have been found as far flung as the knee or the nose. Lungs that sort of thing. So it's a systemic disease. One of the earlier theories about it was that was related to retrograde menstruation. And it was like these. The tissue the menstrual tissue instead of leaving was growing still in the pelvic cavity again. That's found not to venture we now find. That in studies done on fetuses.

Let no one doubt That this is a difficult and dangerous efforts on which we have set out. Many months of sacrifice. Self discipline lie ahead.

I think what you said, was you just wanna wherever he is now stop and paying for what he's done or any materials you have and move on. I think Mark has a good relationship with him and can probably negotiate that. We did try to get him on. But we will talk to him later. So thank you for calling and make sure Daphne gets all of your information before hanging up or if she has it, you can hang up. James has a contractor. He is ah, wealthy young man who inherited some money. And this contractor, I think is taking advantage of him. He fired the contractor. He wants to know what to do now, James. This guy could put a lien on it and all that stuff and be a jerk. Is he a friend? Do you think he's nice enough not to do that? I have no idea what this guy's going to do. Okay. You said he was a friend. How is how is he, a friend? He's not a friend. That friend is his employees. Oh, I see. So this guy does he have a pretty big company. Give us the name of the company. Indeed, development Hey and G. Okay. And where is he? Is this in Denver or in Colorado Springs? Or where? Hey, Andy Development then. They just moved their offices up north. There are like 90th and 92nd and Okay, That's all right. That's all right. And and okay, and, um where was the building going To be? What part of town Just in general, where Inglewood. Okay. And what's the guy you were dealing with a K and G This? This person you you know, you thought would have been dependable. Curtis. Curtis. And what was the last you heard from Curtis? What was the last thing? He called me up on like two days. Tell me a bunch of, uh, cries, I guess. Yeah. Bunch of crap. So he just tell you anything you want. He thinks you want to hear. In general, I just want to try to get an accurate picture here. What are you doing now? Do you need someone to finish this? Yeah, I need to get it finished before we got a great deal building company. We do have got big. Go ahead. Sorry. That guy who poured the Dad is, uh Honest, it seems like and he's looking into finishing it. But like, but be be careful, James. Well, we'll give you some recommendations to but be careful. Okay? And and out of curiosity, and again, James, I swear to you. I think what you're doing is wise on depending on yourself and not getting financial planners unless you know one just beware of people. And I say this and I know good people. What I'm saying. Don't ever go to a one trick pony who sells something and then calls themselves the financial planner. I'm not saying that's a bad thing for I love for example, I love uh, Kion. Oh, I love these guys, but they do. Um, What they do is has become the banker. But that's basically the most of what they do, and that doesn't necessarily mean it fits everyone And I'm not saying it's not good. I'm just saying If you have a financial, a true financial advisor is licensed, independent and consult a number of different financial products, and you do it two ways. You either do it by a percentage of assets manage. So if they manage a million dollars for you, they do it by a percentage. And, um, um, benefit Rose about the garage, not finances. I know, but I was just telling you if you look for a financial planner, it would be best if you found one that that is honest and doesn't sell one thing. I was just giving a some parting words on the on the goalie before they poured that. I'm just curious before they poured that. Did they actually bring dirt in tow? Level it? I mean, what did they do before they poured it? Um A. I have a sighting gate with a concrete pad. Yeah, for the gate mechanism, and they just but it's their pad right up again. I know. But did they bring in? What he's asking is that you feel like doing anything, Phil Dirt. They actually compact the dirt toe like 99%. I mean, I don't even it's just so screwed up, man. Yeah. Did they did they do you? You didn't really watch him is what you're saying. Do you know that creates this forms? Do you know anything about the building? Did they say who makes the building or what kind of a building No. They were like Well in the steel building. They're like, Oh, it's way cheaper than what? No this other stuff. Well, what's weird is you're talking about a steel building. That's not even on a foundation. Yeah, That's the problem. James, a steel you got to be. You just have to be careful that it's going to be allowed where you are. It sounds like this guy didn't try to get a permit. He doesn't even know if it's allowed there like are theirs. Is there zoning where you're putting it? Commercial zoning? It's residential doing okay. Potential property. Okay. Does the residential property you gotta make sure before you put more money into this, James, what we're saying is make sure that the kind of structure that you want to put their is acceptable. Because it may not be Yeah, but it made okay. It's a garage. It's a garage to you, but it may not be a garage to the neighborhood. Even though you call it a garage. It may not be if it's a pole barn. Some people don't call those garages even though you could call it a garage. So you just That's what we're saying, Man. Just be careful. It sounds like We've got a company on the referral list. I mean, he'd probably talk to you for free man. In fact, I know we will just give him a call and ask him tell him where you're at. But it's great Western building systems, and this guy did mine and he did a bang up job. It's 804 97 21 35. He's a local guy, but he works the entire front range and they're honest and all that stuff, But just ask him, man. I mean, just ask him and then make sure we're moving on to another call, but make sure that Can't stress enough. Even though you're calling it a garage that the type of building that you are building is accepted in that neighborhood. That's either by neighborhood associations by covenants or by ordinances with the city. You've got to be be be really careful there. All right. Thank you very much for calling James.

And I'm not proud of this, but I don't advocate people do this, But it was for life insurance, and I had been known to on a weekend maybe partake in a substance or so and I smoked cigarettes. When I drag. I don't want that to show up in my yard because that would increase Your premiums, right? So 100%. Well, they don't actually goes. They wouldn't even give you a policy, man. Listen, when I wrote my book, you're wrong in your ugly back in 2010 and I admitted to drug use And alcohol use in the book. We could get life insurance for the better part of seven years ago. So so the book and this is what I was fearing. So I actually my wife couldn't believe I had to do this. I said you're in the bath and put it in this. Put it in the bathroom in the Cabinet under the sink, The guy comes over Nice life insurance salesman. And it's like it's time of time for the urine and I went in, and I poured her urine in the tube that he gave me gave it back to him.

You know we're going to use the kid, but I got a kid in the pit might come back pregnant. You're pregnant? Yeah, I think that's happened before in the world. But I think a male was great. I guess I did. He hurt here. That happened since I was afraid of that. What did you have the right color Whizzinator? Because it was that NFL guy won round one that I heard this this guy. This guy was so much skin. Wrapped it on him, and I think the couple look at me. Yeah, Of course. He used the brown Whizzinator. I mean, what is he stupid? Like Tyson? He ain't stupid.

"This might shock you but back, bobby played. The major league minimum salary when he first broke into the big leagues was Forty Thousand Dollars Wow. Okay. So then we went on strike for it to go up at sixty thousand, and by the time he was done playing it was up around eighty thousand. So when you put that into perspective now a major league ballplayer amid a rookie first day uniform is GonNa make it to rate of five hundred thousand, right? Okay. So so put that in perspective. So for us. Robby played for the Yankees off and on for five and a half years in the major leagues but and he was a first round draft pick back. Then a first round draft pick would sign for about one hundred, thousand dollars. Now they signed for two or three, million or more. So just putting it all in perspective. So our money didn't last forever, right? We we had a finite amount of money and so when he was done playing for the Yankees and then a couple of minor league teams after AAA trying to get back to the big league. We look at our options and because he didn't have a degree 'cause he was drafted after our. With. College I. Did have a degree in teaching I went I went into teaching and our three children went to the school. I taught at it worked out real well for US but Bobby went into coaching and most coaches. Will never coach at the major league level. Those jobs are really coveted. The game has changed a lot recently and gotten a little weird with that. But but. For the bulk of the last twenty, thirty years you know you might. Coach or manage teams, which is like being head coach you know for. For, your whole life and never get bigly league opportunity. So what happened for us is that? Bobby. Started in the minor leagues and a couple of different things happen Eric One was. That we prayed and it was sixteen years. Sixteen years in the minor leagues before he got his first opportunity to coach a major league team in it team because I was leading Bible Studies. Four Major League rockies wives at the time because we lived in Denver. So I was teaching them their Bible Study and one of the wife became one of my best friends her husband Joe Girardi became manager at that time of the Florida Marlins he asked lobby to be one of his coaches. and. So we were with him for a year and then he got fired, which means we got rails goes so. Yeah, bobby went on to be a coach for another manager that was managing the San Diego padres. And then the following your Joe Girardi got the best job in baseball which was with New York Yankees. as his as the manager. So he asked me to be his third base coach, but at that point I quit. My job in education thinking this is it. I can finally write books. I can do what I want to full time. I can minister full-time we were both so excited but. I have another story. Are you ready for it? So. Here's what happened so. On my first. Team driving to my first game at Yankee Stadium. Watching bobby now as a coach, not a player now as a coach remember, this is now this point about. Oh about twenty years later from our original. Time of Prank, he'd be a coach. Manager's wife Joe Girardi wife Champ calls me on my way to the stadium and she says Gary There's a wife. That is in desperate trouble you're going to need if you would just sit and talk with her pray with her please I told her all about you. Would you do this, and of course, I said Yeah, of course, I would will come to find out. she was the wife of a superstar on the Yankees at the time and I get to the stadium I find where she's sitting. She doesn't sit with the other wives. and. At the time, her husband was having an affair with Madonna. And it hadn't hit the news yet but she knew about it and it was pretty traumatic for her and and so I sat in the stands and I encouraged her and I prayed with her that was on a Friday by Sunday, he had kicked her and their two little girls out of their home. And by Sunday afternoon, Jonah was sitting in her seat at Iki Stadium. So it was a nightmare in. We we basically just prayed and prayed as a team joe in kin bobby. Myself pray for this particular plane and I don't really WANNA see. People might figure out who it was. So anyway we loved on that Pointer Bobby was the infield coach, the third base coach. So he was running bobby's tutelage. We just encourages player as much as we could loved on him never never said anything detrimental about him or two. But at the end of that season bobbies first year with Yankees remember I quit my job you know everything was going well, I think I had my first book deal everything was full force. Well, we got a call one week after the season was over. From the general manager and from our good friend, the manager of the team Joe Girardi, and they said that that particular player had gotten US fired. She had gone to ownership and said, I'm not comfortable with him being my coach and. They let us go and we knew it was spiritual. We knew it was a spiritual battle. We knew it was Out of our control and even out of the GM and the managers control. And as God would have it. We we actually ended up having to go back down into the low minor leaks. The next year we couldn't find a job in the game. It was a really rough time I left my job. And We didn't do any radio interviews. We didn't. We didn't bad mouth that particular player we just took the high. Road. in a year, we went from the Best Job in baseball coaching to one of the worst jobs little williamsport Pennsylvania where the mascot was vomit. With a saw in his hand, do we went from the Yankees to some soft Terry varmint? You know team and was a her during that time timeframe. Yes Oh, it was awful because you know it had been our dream. Remember we prayed for. Sixteen years to get back to the major leagues as a coach, and then we were there for about two years. One year with the MARLINS. One year with. The padres and the? Yankees. So three years. And then all of a sudden back into the depths of the minor leagues, the low minor leagues. And there's a lot of money there. I. Don't know if people know that but the. Minor League teams, they generally don't pay variable. You literally can't make understood. That's exactly right. That's exactly right and and you know it was just that whole thing like Lori. We prayed we thought we had finally made it. We really did pay. Dues. Through all those years we've been so faithful matter of fact, we were being faithful in encouraging in helping a young white. You know when this particular player.

And he had married my mom who was from Maryland he my father was from Colorado key brought her back to Colorado after they got married. And they started a lifestyle put their marriage was not good. And so one night. My mom had heard about a party up that his bank that she has not been invited to. So she drove up to the bank and often my father would just come home drunk or just be gone for weekends and she wouldn't know where he was. So this was kind of the issue and he hadn't invited or mentioned this bank party to her. So she drove up toward the bank was and found him that night in the car with another woman so that very night she told them their was over and shortly after she drove off. His car was involved in a massive car accident he was by himself in the car. but the car rolled off the road between Boulder Colorado in Denver in Milkman found him stone over the front end. Backseat. Paralyzed from the next? down. Found him about five am in the morning. We don't know how long had lane there paralyzed and some now my mom had to. Immediately. Go into the role of loving wife at the bedside of a paralyzed husband knowing what she'd seen the night before and so he was yeah, six months in ICU in a hospital in Denver and then six months in a Rehab Center before he came home a year later. And you know Eric. That's kind of really where everything fell apart my mom started drinking. She was quite. Violent in her drinking and just it was really. The. Bleakest off most awful time. You know we really lost our way as a family father just went silent. He really couldn't communicate much after that and. It was rough and when I left for college eventually, I was the oldest I was nine at the time of the accident. My little sister was six and my little brother was three years old and was. Basically. I'm sorry. That's good. So you said your father couldn't communicate with like he just wasn't able to or he just like shut down emotionally like he was just not. Good question. He just kinda shutdown just when it communicate he was quiet. You know and he has been on the top of the world and now had nothing no, and so after kind of helping to raise my brother and sister when I was able to get out to college I, just was like Sia by by I'm done here and that's when I went out to San Diego State and that's where I met Bobby My. Now, so it was it was good being there but in terms of faith you know I I basically had none I didn't I didn't know Jesus I'd never heard about Jesus? And it was there at San Diego State that I I gave my life over to Jesus basically doing eating disorder. That's what pushed me to give my life over to the war will tell us that story that happen. Yeah. Well, you know given kind of the way I was raised in such kind of trauma and basically neglect and some some violence. I I. Turn To. Food Eric. I.

Has China lost Taiwan?

"Taiwan's president secured secured a second term over the weekend started scenes of the woman who stood up to China because China always believe China. Taiwan's recent election is widely seen as a watershed moment a referendum between Wayne. Two very different choices saw in win. She's the president since two thousand sixteen. She promised to protect Taiwan's freedoms from an increasingly assertive. He said he's an autocratic Beijing or the nationalist combing Tung came to the opposition which stressed causes ties with Beijing. The result a landslide two cy and her ruling independence leading Democratic Progressive Party. It was her warnings about China that hit home. We've voters this threat Israel with these respect from China situation has changed you. You cannot exclude the possibility of a war. And it's high invading. Taiwan is something that is going to be very costly fled China Taiwan's president saw in win on the basis now. She scored move odds than any other presidential candidate since Taiwan hi one began holding democratic elections in Nineteen ninety-six. So why has Beijing's efforts to control. Taiwan was it backfired and we'll China Now back off from what it sees as a renegade province remember most nations including the United States and Australia. We adhere to the one China policy which means we formally acknowledge Beijing's claims over Taiwan but what can Washington and camera do to help this vibrant democracy of twenty ninety four million in the face of arising China. Natasha Qassam is research fellow at the Lowy Institute for International Policy where she directs the annual Lowy Institute suit poll. She's a former Australian diplomat. And he wants is emeritus professor of Strategic Studies at the Australian National University and author of how to defend Australia. He's a former deputy defense secretary. Natasha Hugh Welcome to Iran. To be with you thanks for having is time now Natasha. Why has China lost the battle for public opinion in Taiwan? Look I do think there's a real question as to whether China ever had a chance in this respect. You've got a longstanding up position in Taiwan to unification with China. You've got a long standing position to one country. Two Systems the model that China developed in the eighties Fulbari Taiwan and Hong Kong. And of course we see the problematic way that's playing out in Hong Kong today but the most important issue here I think has been the emergence of a unique Taiwanese identity entity. This is what has really changed over the last decade the majority of Taiwanese people they see themselves as Taiwanese and in part this is in opposition to a growing authoritarian -tarian reach from China but in pilots a product of Taiwan's transition to democracy. It's unique history in terms of its different periods of colonization and indigenous peoples. I think today we can say that. This far more that divides Taiwan and China then unites them. Is that growing sense of independence in Taiwan. And Natasha you mentioned Hong Kong and how that was supposed to be the roadmap for China's One Country Two Systems policy the clearly rebuked in these elections hugh. How does Beijing you all these? Well I think they must be very gloomy very concerned and I think getting pretty angry because I completely agree with Tushar I think the elections very significant because it confirms assumes absolutely that the prospect of an eventual consensual reunification of Taiwan agreeing to be absorbed or reabsorbed helped by the mainland looks more and more remark and the problem for everyone including for Taiwan is that Beijing is very unlikely to accept except that Beijing for Beijing reunification as I sit bringing Taiwan back into China is an essential part of their agenda of Xi. Jinping's agenda to for the rejuvenation as he calls it off of China overcoming of that century of humiliation which which began with the opium wars lower back in the forties and which she has set himself to overcome overturn. I think for him getting Taiwan back as he I would say it is. There is nothing more important to him. Nothing more important to the Communist Party and so we have The seats of a real tragedy because as Natasha says it's clear and clear that the Taiwanese don't want to be part of China and it says clearest safe obtain the Chinese determined to make it part of I hear you say Washington Santon. Sorry Beijing won't accept Taiwan's growing assertiveness but hasn't by aging conduct here been counterproductive. I think of John is if it's to intensify military not exercises around the Taiwan Strait. If it's to US light diplomatically. A Taiwan a hasn't that just stiffened the resolve of the tonys. ESO expected. Has I think I think that's been effector I think is Natasha. Says I think what's happened in. Hong Kong has has disabused anyone in Taiwan of any illusions about what one-country-two-systems three two systems would really mean. If it was applied to talk to Taiwan I think the growing authoritarian nature of the Chinese Communist Party ruled in China itself under under Shuzhen Ping Has Added to that. Boils I think as Natasha says again. That that the the the long term development of Taiwan itself Tallinn's entity that the the evolution of a very vibrant democracy there Meant that perhaps. Whatever Beijing done even if Beijing it'd be much less frightening that it has been it still would have been unlikely that Taiwan would move voluntarily to do what Beijing once and it's actually is hugh why wrought out here and he's not alone? We've had on this program over the last few years Professor Jon Meacham from the University of Chicago. The argument here is that not only will China be much more powerful awful than it is today but it will also remain deeply committed to making Taiwan part of China. I think she's deadline. Is this attender of the Communist revolution. Which would be a twenty four nine in other words? Tom Is on China. Saad your response. I disagree that Taiwan is really significant priority for Xi Jinping's China. But I think it's important when we think about what their highest priority is and for me that is always the domestic legitimacy of the potty state and and so by Beijing's policies primarily directed at that domestic audience. They might be failing in Taiwan but suddenly what they ought designed to do is to demonstrate two people in China that Beijing holds all the cards that they have a able to exit military pressure on Taiwan that they can exclude Taiwan from international organizations and that is the highest priority and under Xi Jinping's China. I think the hotline inflexible policies will just continue for godless. The effect that they have in Taiwan. But at the same time I do think it's a self fulfilling prophecy to argue that China will become so powerful so we should roll over and do nothing and therefore it will allow be allowed to become even more all powerful in military and economic times. I think this is almost a given Alpha China. But it's not a given in terms of China's power. China's power has been restricted in the region winslow in many ways many countries including Australia do not recognize the ages over the as traders say. China hasn't succeeded in achieving. Its goals in the South China Sea. It hasn't succeeded in closing bases in Japan. There's that in South Korea in numerous ways. I wouldn't say that time is on China side if anything I I think. China as a rational actor recognizes the cost of a protracted war a much higher than the cost of their patients on that knowledge has as Shea Jingping pink overreach. The embroiled other countries led by the US but including Australia to a newly skeptical view of Chana. I look clearly Thomas. China's Powell grows as system becomes more authoritarian as the way it seeks to exhibit influence throughout the region becomes to put it politely a more assertive a lot of countries. You Niger and beyond becoming more and more worried about what. China's power and hatch on is going to use its power mains over the next few decades but that I think we'd be too optimistic to imagine that China is somehow becoming a self limiting problem. I do think Jonah's power has grown. I think it's influences growing there. It's I still true. Of course. There's Natasha is that there are lots of things at China would like it. It hasn't yet got but I'm more pessimistic than she is that about China's capacity not to get its way increasingly as time goes on and it's worth bearing in mind all the things that China does get that yes Not everyone accepts what China wants to do in the just south China Sea but Australia. Itself hasn't undertaken serious remove navigation operations Australia and self does not acknowledge China as a strategic rival. The United States does Japan treating China increasingly cool. She asleep as it becomes less and less confident about Donald Trump's America. And we'll push you. It's Responsibilities towards Japan onto the treaty. So I think actually China is doing pretty well. I think we've made a big mistake. To underestimate raced tonight. But China's resolve in its capacity to use. Its Influence to get what it wants. I guess. Hugh Watt for my new and Tasha Qassam from from lowy and we're talking about Taiwan and China in the wake of the all in democracies election widely seen as a rebuke to Beijing. The TASHA you say Beijing's going to weaken Taiwan's democracy house. Oh look I think I said that it was going to try and I think it is trying in many ways. It's trying through disinformation Ryan and bypassing more media outlets in Taiwan and then controlling the narrative in that way it is certainly trying to infiltrate grassroots organizations like temple organizations sations and farmers and fisheries groups. The thing is that Beijing is very much moving away. I think from trying to support. Just one side of politics. The Guangdong Minggong which has always been seen as more friendly towards Beijing insofar as has been unsuccessful because the dog is not able to as. We've all of the reasons since we've already outlined. They are not able to deliver Taiwan in any way because of the way of public opinion against China. So now I believe that Beijing is trying to undermine undermine the democracy itself to undermine people's faith in institutions trying to essentially mess it up I think the best expression I've had tended into Crimea so that you have a government paralyzed a government that people do not trust and in that way the system would be much weaker. You Natasha to agree that Beijing is going to try awaken Taiwan's democracy and certainly badging will increase the pressure to open talks on reunification. I suppose the question here is wise. China so sensitive about Taiwan one. I mean think about it Taiwan or Formosa as it was earlier known. It's only been part of China for something like four out of the past one hundred twenty twenty five years since Japanese colonization nineteen ninety-five four out of one hundred twenty five and those four years when the nationalists who fled to Taiwan. They were running the mainland alien so why the sensitivity. He what. We'll Tom Because one hundred and twenty five years is not very long time in the way of China's paypal and the Chinese government see themselves CBS and has precisely one hundred and twenty five years that I see correctly in some ways as being a very black period in the history and that the the great mission of the Communist Party has been to bring China out of that as I said before the rejuvenation of the Chinese people. It's hard to underestimate. Overestimate the the emotional power Al behind this idea of China returning to its previous position and Taiwan has become a and the Chinese Communist Party has made Taiwan into a a symbol of everything bad that happened to China before and everything that Diane resolved to fix and the way in which they they put Hong Kong back into into the fold the YM which have grown their economy the way in which they have reasserted China's military power and have trying at least to reassert itself the parish cultural pass at a speak. All of that is part of the deal but Taiwan is in a sense that the jewel in the crown for them and so I think the the political political and to a certain extent the emotional fright that the Taiwan issue carries does make it absolutely central to the Communist. Party's not just its own sense of itself but it's confidence that it can continue command. The loyalty and achieved legitimacy in the eyes of the Chinese people as what Communist Party delivers not just in terms of prosperity but in terms of China's dignity and position in the world symbolized by Taiwan that is so central to its legitimacy as the government of China Anna. And does that mean Natasha Qassam. That is now a very real danger that the listen Beijing takes from size relection. Is that the only way. Taiwan will ever a unify with mainland China. As at the end of a gun. Look that's entirely possible but I have to say I'm not convinced that as an argument mainly because we like to think think of China's military palate in terms of it being this very quick victory. RV Taiwan because they are coming late outgunned in that sense but none nothing about this would be. It would be very difficult to take Taiwan in terms of its geography and even an invasion is really just the beginning. When you have twenty four a million people who don't want to be a part of your country you have? Refugees flocking to other countries in the region including Australia. You'll have resistance in the streets. You'll have disruption to global supply chains at which Taiwan lies at. Its hot this is not an easy proposition. It is laden with

Interested, Mr President in your views of what's happening at the US Mexican border with the family separation and what your reaction is what we're seeing there and what you think ordinary Americans can do about it.

How, how do we deal with Russia? Well, the president himself, could give it.

We spent the morning talking about Silicon Valley region are trends where innovation is taking us. The challenges we face and the things that we can be doing right here with their own leaders and our own community. The purpose of this. Final session. However is to broaden the scope and talk about silicon valley's place in the nation about our dealings with our national leaders about our impact on Washington and Washington's impact on us. Finding someone who could discuss all that was a tall order. We wanted someone who's close enough to Washington that they weren't speaking generalities. We want someone who could provide those necessary nuances those crucial and interesting details, but we wanted that person to have sufficient distance from Washington. So they could see the big picture. So they could talk about it, systematically analytically. And finally, we hope this person would have a sense of history. We thought it'd be really helpful. If our keynote speaker could help us make sense of the moment, we're in today by comparing it to other critical times in our history. There were also mocked also marked by division and fear.

"Said somebody should run against John McCain who has been in my opinion, not so hot. And I supported him. I supported him for president. I raised a million dollars from a lot of money. I supported him. He lost. He let us down. But you know, he lost. So I'd never liked him as much after that. Because I don't like to lose. But but Frank Franklin we'll get to he hit me. He's a war hero. He's award. He's a war hero presumes captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. I hate to. That was a moment July of twenty fifteen and many people who saw that thought in the moment that it might end his month-old presidential campaign, right then. And there as we laid a learned it did not the president has since doubled down on his dislike for the now. Dead American hero. John mccain. It sounds as though POW's have not been his thing. Nontheless as president. He did what others have done on this date by declaring April ninth as national former prisoner of war recognition day still with us our measures, Michael Beschloss, and Jon Meacham. Michael, no, mention no reverence. He was blocks away from the Hanoi Hilton. Where so many Americans were tortured in Vietnam. No visit it's not his thing. It is gross and disrespectful to the memory of John McCain and self knowledge that I may not Donald Trump. You sort of wonder if it occurred to him when he was approving the idea of a national POW day that this was not exactly in sync with the terrible comments. He made about John McCain for years ago when he was beginning to run for president and those he's made even after John McCain passed, I just don't get it. This doesn't help them in any way that I can see Jon Meacham last night on this broadcast. We aired part of speech delivered Sunday by mayor Pete Fort, Wayne, Indiana, Pete Buddha, judge it was about his life in large part as a gay man in this country the last item on a long resume.

That quote, I can't say I'm one hundred percent, sure. End quote that the tracks came from the legendary creature, but I hope so Meacham suck subsequently posted the pictures to a common community Facebook page where they garnered a considerable amount of attention in spawned speculation as to what may have created the trail, and you can check out that story and the pictures for yourself about coast to coast.

"meacham" Discussed on Real Time with Bill Maher

"Welcome to an HBO podcast from the HBO latent series real time with Bill Maher. Okay. All right. So here are the question. John Meacham does the post civil war era offer any lessons and how to seize upon a post Trump era to enact real lasting, political and social reform. Oh, we're we're in reconstruction times. Not really, unfortunately. Because reconstruction really was a prelude to a century where we were still fighting Jim crow and US grant got a couple of things. Right. He fought against the clan. And that was important. It didn't didn't come back until the twenty s but Justice department was founded actually to fight the clan for the for the first time in the eighteen seventies. I do think this is like reconstruction in that the most analogous president, which is like saying the best restaurant hospital doesn't small category is is in. Because John Hoult. Yeah. He was Johnson trying to undo the verdict of the war and was doing so they impeached him. So let's get on with the impeachment. Okay. Well, you're you voted against the resolution request the president's tax returns you dead. It was come on. Well. Do you? There wasn't an actual resolution on war. But it was probably a vote emotion the table. But if it comes back on let me I'm sure I know where the questions going. I think I should see the president's. Oh, good. That's why we bring Republicans here into that. You know, bring him there. We run right. Exact. Right. Okay. Jennifer. What do you make of the senate's latest warming against a warning against precipitous withdrawal from Syria. Does this signal a shift in Republican push back against Trump's foreign policies whenever they can do more than they have been doing which is exactly nothing. So every little bit should be encouraged now, perhaps they can start pushing back on things like the wall on things like his non-existent victory over ISIS. So if they can smart start in small ways, hopefully, this will become a pattern a trend. I think what is interesting is that they're no longer completely cowed by the sky that they have some inkling of independent some sense of self smear survival. Maybe so this is a good thing. I don't think it's going to be enough frankly to save a bunch of them into thousand twenty someone like Cory Gardner kaput. But hey, they want to start and they wanna start actually taking the job seriously. That would be great don't you think they should? The next step and actually decide and vote to authorize our military actions rather than just letting them happen while you're going to go back to the constitution..

"I've spoken of a shining city, all my political life. But I don't know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind, it was a tall. Proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans windswept God, blessed and teeming with people have oh kinds living, in harmony and peace a city where the pre ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the wheel and the heart to get here note has mentioned there of walls that was the nineteen eighty nine. Farewell address Ronald Reagan from the Oval Office thirty years ago to day still with us the historian and author Jon Meacham, there is the current occupant of the White House his address from the Oval Office this week, John there were Democrats. That election night when Jimmy Carter lost in tears because they thought that our country was ruined. And we were going to be laughing stock of the world, then came Ronald Reagan and in a country where unless you're a scally wag we tend to look affectionately back on our former presidents question is to you did people in real time. Look at this guy has farewell address and say, you know, what that's just an a shining example of what we want our president, and our presidency to be or has it been fuzzed up and history along the way. Well, there's different than something being fuzzed up in our seeing it more clearly, and I think that in a lot of times with presidents. We had this Truman we had with George H W Bush for mountains tend to get a little larger, and we judge them more effectively the farther we are away from them, President Reagan left office, pretty popular. We tend to forget Iran-Contra. We tend to forget that as you say there was this quite compelling, or at least widespread view that. He was as he put it somehow combination. The mad bomber and ebony or Scrooge and you're right people. The people fault the presidency itself in the late nineteen seventies had become diminished where we had the equivalent of four one term presidents from nineteen sixty to nineteen eighty whilst wanting to assassination one to Vietnam. One to Watergate president Ford loss. Carter and then president Carter loses to Reagan. So we had five presidents in twenty years. There was an op-ed Lloyd Cutler White House counsel for Jimmy Carter wrote a piece in the Washington Post saying the presidency was now too complicated for any one person. And then a long game Ronald Reagan and whoever does get disagree with him. But he certainly proved that the office it self in the right hands could be a force for good the speech that night remarkably thirty years ago, we're now separate as far from that speech as he was from Eisenhower leading Washington, which makes us all feel old. I think that night it was saying as a kind of grace note, the old boy was having one more one more turn on stage. And that in the paper though in the New York Times that day Bill Safire conservative had a column saying Reagan had had a good first term. But we wish you hadn't had a second term. So he was not a Rushmore like figure, what's so remarkable to me about this speech written by our friend and colleague Peggy Noonan is that you realize that it should be with Eisenhower in Washington's that his argument for openness for big heartedness for all the pilgrims from all the laws places link through the darkness toward home. You realize that he was warning us in that Reagan esque way that we had open our arms and not clench our fist a terrific point. In part of the reason the American people in all their affection routinely rank Ronald Reagan among the top ten favourite presidents in their lifetime. Jon meacham. Thank you very much have a good weekend, sir. And we're lucky to have you after a night light tonight coming up for us. We all heard the president's words this week. But we will show you how one organization heard his Oval Office address in a different way..

"Just the same old lies the same old rhetoric over and over again delivered an incredibly boring and flat affect to know political or legislative impact whatsoever. And you know, I think that Jon Meacham second ago said that you can't have negotiators in corner. What you saw tonight was Donald Trump in an Oval Office. Stuck in a corner of around office unable to find his way out of it? No path forward. No solution. And I think as your guests have said tonight Lawrence. We're going to gradually see house and Senate Republicans melt away from the. President joined with the Democrats reopen the government and then have a conversation. But what the best way is to secure our border. Jon meacham. You tweeted something earlier that really struck me. And I'd like the country could consider it. We're gonna put it up as I read it. You said America should build a wall of steel Awal as high as having against the flow of immigrants, Georgia governor Clifford Walker at a nineteen twenty four convention of the Ku Klux Klan than a powerful force at a time of strain for the white working class and John of the anti immigrant. Awal concept has been around for a while. Sure has Walker was a Georgia politician who had not been a member of the clan had lost gubernatorial election. So he joined the clan and he won. He gave that speech at clones occasion. They called it in in Kansas City in twenty four remarkable period. Nineteen twenty four as you know, was the democratic national convention it drove the convention to one hundred and three ballots because there were something like three hundred twenty seven members of the clan who were delegates to that convention, and they couldn't vote for this radical figure out Smith why because was an Irish Catholic. And there was this ferocious anti-immigrant sentiment goes all the way back to seventeen ninety eight when we passed the sedition acts anti-immigrant sentiment ebbs and flows right now is flowing. The interesting question is to what extent is genuinely flowing beyond the fever precincts of the president and his base, and that's going to be the. Fascinating question is as you rod. We're just saying when we see if there is a resolution, this particular moment will there be Republican politicians who will realize that. In fact, the Fox News world in which so much of the right wing lives is not in fact, where the country is in twenty eighteen John Ron clan. Thank you both for joining us. Really? Appreciate it. And when we come back, we'll be joined by a former acting director of immigration and customs enforcement. We'll get his reaction to what the president had to say tonight..

Bush’s note to Clinton in January 1993: ‘Your success now is our country’s success’

"I wish you will. I wish your family. Well, your success now is the country success. I'm rooting hard for you. Karen? It's hard to believe in two thousand eighteen that those words passed between presidents, but that was the decency of George H W Bush it was although he was hurt. And for a long time. He did kind of disappear. He went home to Houston. He would joke about walking the dogs and loading the dishwasher, and certainly there was some vindication. Eight years later when he and Bill Clinton are once again on that inauguration, the inaugural stand, and then it is George W Bush taking the oath of office. So. So the president did have some time to to sort of reevaluate take stock again. But also had had the satisfaction of seeing two of his sons become governors one of his one of them president and ultimately in doing good works with Bill Clinton for a very close personal relationship to the point where the Bush brothers would would joke about him being there other Jonathon Allen. You have been prolific this morning in your analysis of of president, George H W Bush, and you when one of your stories this morning, you you sort of describe him as being the end of ehre. Absolutely. Thank you for the direction. They're really in a lot of ways sort of the last of his kind. I know Jon Meacham has been on our air the author who wrote about him. He describes him as the last gentleman. He was also the last president to start flight and finish a war. And I think most importantly, he was a president who represented a moderate brand of republicanism of the last of those that we've seen there's been an evolution in the Republican party.
