"Decades ago. It was conventional wisdom. That sex was reserved for monogamist marriage between a man and a woman fewer familiar with bisexual transgender or queer issues however no movement in my lifetime has achieved such a radical cultural reversal as the lgbtq revolution in nineteen ninety. Nine thirty five percent of americans approved of same sex marriage while sixty two percent disapproved by twenty twenty. the numbers had more than flipped. Sixty seven percent approved while thirty. One percent disapproved millennials are more than twice as likely to favor same sex marriage as their grandparents. It is conventional wisdom today that lgbtq rights are human rights. Love is love your sexual orientation and or gender identity. Is your business not mine. No one including evangelical christians has the right to impose their beliefs on you at most evangelical 's can claim the first amendment protection of religious freedom and free speech but many in our culture view this as merely the right to be wrong before we can convince our secular culture that we are right and sexual morality. We must first be convinced ourselves. It is difficult to be counter cultural. The louder the cry were so called equality. The harder it is to stand for so called inequality as a result. It is vital that christians never see the high ground of truth in science in this cultural contest. Ryan t anderson. President of the ethics and public policy center is right. The left would love to frame these issues as if they pitted reason in science against superstition but on all of these issues social conservatives are on the side of the biological facts he adds the scientific point of view confirms the biblical teaching that humans are created male and female. It requires no faith to know that. A boy who identifies girl isn't one and shouldn't be allowed into private female spaces as a result he states. We'll have the best shot at winning fights over abortion restrictions or child sex change procedures when conservatives are willing to assert that their beliefs are true not merely protected in law in support of biblical morality. I can cite far more of factual nonreligious illustrations than space permits today. Just a few recent examples. The aclu recently claimed that trans athletes do not have an unfair advantage in sports however a study by the british journal of sports medicine reported that transgender men have an athletic advantage over biological females. Even after a year on hormone therapy one female athlete called the biden. administration's insistence on transgender athletes. Participation in female sports heartbreaking. She explained girls like me lose. Championships podium spots advancement opportunities and the recognition. We deserve because we're forced to compete against biological males. Our races women fought long and hard for athletic opportunities. And i want to preserve those opportunities for the next generation of female athletes. New research shows that puberty suppressing drugs given to children. Considering gender transition weaken their bones both in height and strength an endocrinologist previously found that children treated with gender identity. Medications reported greater self harm while girls exhibited greater emotional problems and dissatisfaction with their bodies thousands of books and articles have been written documenting the scientific biological and factual evidence for biblical sexual morality. My point today is simply to remind you that our creator knows better than we do. And once only our best he is merciful. And gracious slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness as psalm. Eighty six fifteen says since neither divine nor human nature changes. God's word is just as relevant today as when it was first inspired it is still profitable for teaching for reproof for correction and for training in righteousness as second timothy. Three sixteen says it addresses sexual morality or any other subject. It is still true when we declare and defend biblical truth. We are not imposing our personal beliefs but giving others transforming truth they can lead them to god's very best for their lives saint augustine one of the most brilliant people who ever lived testified where i found truth there.

Mercedes slap Kellyanne Conway, no one is clearly in charge nuts. No one is emerged as running the group. What are they talking about?

Same exact stuff with President Obama, nothing different just ridiculous. But here's the CNN headline power struggle paralyzes irrelevant White House press shop. So they Mariano Rivera unanimous. Yes. Did you see was the first person ever to be unanimously voted into the hall of fame? Correct. I think that makes pretty clear how bad the system is for voting in the hall of fame that is absolutely ridiculous. It shows you how flawed these votes are sure. Because he is as the greatest closer ever. He's my favorite Yankee of recent years. I love Mariano Rivera. But there is no winner. He's the greatest player in baseball. He was unanimous Babe Ruth wasn't. That's right. Mickey Mantle wasn't Tyco. Wasn't. Len Berman said that the Thai Cobb, I didn't even get in the first time well on the first ballot actually should take Tuykov out of this. Because apparently he was a really bad guy and his personal behavior was so ugly. That a lot of these guys might have. Hey that was part of this problem. Mickey Mantle Joe DiMaggio, Willie Mays weren't unanimous. Nope. Did they ever grab the guys who voted? No. And asked him what the hell what would it take for you to vote? Yes. Exactly. I don't know. That's that's old news. But. It's amazing that no other player has going in with the unanimous vote with. That's just ridiculous. How bad the whole system is somebody should get a shovel and dig up these writers who voted no on Joe DiMaggio. And just say what the hell did he have to do to get your vote? Well, I mean, they all look better the farther away we get from day. Joe DiMaggio retired. He didn't have the greatest record in baseball. Ted williams. I know. Greatest hitter ever batted four hundred is the last guy ever to bat four hundred now, she can get unanimous votes. No. So who else got voted in last night? Mike be seena who used to be Yankee pitcher Edgar Martinez. This kind of takes away from the holiday, but this kind of takes away from my Rivera. Yeah. A little oh, you got voted in. But so did who got almost three hundred wins. Mike was okay to the greatest slumps ever to Edgar Martinez was D H for Seattle batted over three hundred career. Okay. But you got in with. I mean, you know, I don't see a lot of kids lineup Modell's. Edgar Martinez Seattle. They're buying them. I don't know. Put an Edgar Martinez ball on EBay signed by him. See where to get your see Mariana Rivera's autograph. It's the most beautiful autograph ever every ball. It's like calligraphy, and he would sit there and slowly do each ball to get the autograph. Just right. Hey, you only had to work one inning of every game. He had a warm plenty of time signed ball. He came into the roughest situations. Imaginable in baseball, nobody called him in when it was ten to nothing had a big lead. It was always always the most crucial moment of the game. You had to have ice water in your veins. He was good. He was very very good. Here's a statistic. More people have walked on the moon then gotten unearned run off Mariano Rivera in the playoffs. Really more people have walked on the moon then gotten unearned run off. Mario Mariano Rivera in the playoffs. Twelve people have walked on the moon. Only eleven people I've ever gotten unearned run off Mariano Rivera in the playoffs. There was one guy. There was a government Zona who got the earned run. They won the World Series for the Diamondbacks. Remember that beat the Yankees, right? It happens off of Maryono Rivera. But he's still got the greatest, right? Brady's lost the game too. Yeah. But still the best record ever unbelievable. Speaking of Brady, we don't turn this into a sports show. The call those referees made the worst call ever in the history of football pass interference. What is that? Exactly. Like if a guy puts his hand, and you're not supposed to hit the player before the ball gets there. You're not supposed to touch him or hit him for the book. So in this case the player just shoved the guy over just smacked into a knocked him down the referee. Didn't see any pass interference worst call ever ever in history. So they asked Bob Kraft patriots owner we have. Human error sometimes but we have to move on. And it's unfortunate we have to be diligent about trying to get a correct it's easy for a guy like him to say that because all the bad calls, go his way. Yeah. But he's also saying that because I guess he rather face the Rams, I'm sure the other reason he's saying that he is closer to good Bob Goodell the NFL Commissioner than any other owner, they're very close. Goodell is the worst Commissioner in history. You've got to admit this is very embarrassing for the NFL because the saints will be in the Super Bowl the worst. If you put truth serum in the any owner and asked him, they should say, this is ridiculous. Why isn't Goodell done something you should put a of the next day saying we're gonna take action we'll fix this? We'll do something about it. Instead of keeping quiet about it. I don't want to admit it. Got to admit because everybody saw be maybe you're not going to announce a solution until after the Super Bowl. But you gotta put out a statement saying don't worry, we'll fix this can't allow this to happen again. No. But he's the worst Commissioner ever craft loves the guy all these owners love this Goodell because he makes them a fortune. He's the best to go shooter. He's brutal in these negotiations. It just seems like I know I have a bias against New England all of the calls go in their favor. When you're a winner winter. It's a. Trump derangement syndrome. There's certain guys in life. Like Brady like Trump. They always win. You put a prosecutor or a special counsel FBI corrupt FBI all on somebody's deal. They'll find something. It's only guy like Trump that escapes from this. He's just a winner. Take Brady all the coin tosses calls. He just escapes them on. You know, Chris Matthews said that once about John F Kennedy Clinton in his own office. He gets caught. How'd you get caught lift his office Kennedy's in the Carlisle? He's Frank Sinatra's house. He's sleeping with hookers. Marilyn Monroe, the some guys who just winners. They don't get caught.

"national cathedral" Discussed on News Radio 1190 KEX
"Glenn beck. Yesterday. The the first funeral for George H W Bush happened in the. The National Cathedral. And it was everything you think a Bush funeral should be like or would be like there were no snarky comments except from the press. There was no lecturing anyone on politics. It was just truly humble. Retelling of a man's life. It was. Who's kind? It was decent. Was normal. The press immediately jumped into audit. You see how Hillary Clinton and Trump Trump behave like can you shut up? Sincerely, shut up. Here's a guy, George W Bush. Who I think is liked by every single president all of them like, George W Bush. Here's a guy who had reason to hate. Donald Trump didn't say anything polite was kind. Who has has reason to hate the Obamas? Because look at what they did to him. They just trashed him for four years is the Bush economy. Well, if Bush hadn't have screwed it up so much he never responded in fact yesterday. He brought Michelle Obama candy. Because the last time they were at a funeral. He did it and they become friends. As he was describing his. His father yesterday. He talked about. Who he was? He said my dad knew how to die young. Probably because twice in his life. He almost did. He said, I think those brushes with death made him cherish the gift of life. And he vowed to live every day to the fullest dad was always busy in constant motion. But never too busy to share his love of life with those around him. He taught us to love the outdoors. He loved watching dogs. He loved landing the elusive striper. Once confined to wheel chair. He seemed happiness sitting on his favourite perch in the backboard Walker's point contemplating the majesty of the Atlantic the horizons. He saw were bright and hopeful he was genuinely an optimistic, man. And that optimism guided his children and meet each of us believe that anything was possible. How many of us are doing that? With our children now. He talked about his service to the nation. He talked about. How he didn't judge people? Dad could relate to people from all walks of life. He was an empathetic man he valued character over pedigree. And he wasn't a cynic. He looked for the good in each person. And usually founded dad taught us that public service was noble and necessary that one could serve with integrity and hold true to the important values like faith and family. He strongly believed. It was important to give back to the community and the country in which one lived. He recognized that serving others enrich to give her soul. To us. He was the brightest of a thousand points of life. When he lost. He shouldered the blame. He accepted that failure is a part of living a full life buddy taught us never to be defined by failure. He showed us. How setbacks can strengthen? He went on to describe I urge you to read this eulogy or to go back and listen to it again, if you didn't hear it the first time, go go back and listen. He's describing what a man should be. And you don't hear that anymore. Andrew Heaton is in today. Andrew Heaton has a new podcast called something's off with Andrew Heaton. There's a there's a story from Vancouver. That traditional masculine values are being ditched by millennial men. Can you tell me as a millennial what our traditional male values? I I'm not sure I mean, first of all keep in mind. This is Canada. I'm looking at this and it's from Vancouver. So this it says young Canadian men, and I highlight of that Mencia beholding masculine values that are distinctly different from those of previous generations. Some of the, you know, I I haven't read the report, but I'm reading through the synopsis of it some of it makes sense to me some of it. I'm not sure of there seems to be this kind of shift in emphasis from physical strength to health which is good on my end. Because I I would I would much rather try and pick up a woman at a bar based on my by. You know, my metabolism. So that's good. Yeah. I I don't know that it's so much that we're actually altering what it is to be a male safaris is just sort of bad to think about it. I do think there's some of that going on right now, where it's, you know, I've I've mentioned before on your on your show that moved here from New York, and one of the things that was interesting to me about that experience was I didn't go into New York thinking of myself as a white male. I am I mean, I'm demographically a white male. But it just wasn't important to I didn't notice. I it's it's for those of you listening to can't see me. I am a storm of manny's. It's it's I'm I mean, I'm literally wearing tartan truce right now. That's uncomfortable. It's I've got a pocket square on. But but that wasn't part of my body. If you'd asked me when I came into New York at Santa comedian, I talked about politics, and by the time, I left that it kind of been hammered into me. And it's not it's not necessarily good that you're a white male. Yeah. The hammer that India it's brought up a lot a like. Or if we'll say, for example, if I have a contrary opinion, that's something that it's like, well, you're coming from a position of privilege, and which is a way of saying you say, I'm from Oklahoma. There's no privilege at all in that. Yeah. That which there too like, I think, you know, the phrase multi varied analysis comes to mind, I dated young lady in New York who she's from Oklahoma as well. And she's from Coweta out to Coweta like, but while we were dating she could not call her dad her dad doesn't own a phone. He doesn't he's he's that poor. And this is this is two years ago three years ago, but he doesn't on a phone, and if she needs to get a hold of him, she has to call her neighbor or write him a letter, and I think like that I don't feel like it's fair to lump that guy into the same category. As I am it's not fair to lump us in the same category of like a hedge fund. Manager in my sister, moved to Wyoming. She used to have to go to a phone poll about five miles away from her house. She didn't have a phone. She was too poor to to put a phone in and she had to drive to a phone pole. And she would stand sometimes, you know, hip deep the call and say, hey merry Christmas. We thought we were like move back to civilization. But I mean that privilege is that privilege. I think in general whenever your your instinct is to engage with people by negating their ability to make an argument. It's a bad thing. You know, it's it's one thing to go. I think that you're wrong. It's another thing to say, you you are just forbidden to venture outside of what I believe is the proper narrative. So did you hear George W Bush's eulogy? I most of it most of it. So I urge you to go back and listen to it. Tell me. The that isn't something that we would all say I want to be like that. Yeah. That guy was a paragon. The the photo. I'm sure it's been making the rounds. But the photo that I thought was retouching was and he's so quiet about it. George H W Bush was a guy who really didn't like political theater. He was raised by mother to not use the pronoun, I very often. But I think in his eighties. There's this great photo of him completely bald because one of the secret servicemen his son. I think head got leukemia. And so all of the secret servicemen shave their heads and support and George H W Bush just did it and like it wasn't like a huge national story did make the rounds a little bit. But it wasn't like he did a press conference. He wanted to be supportive this kid, and I think that kind of. You know, that deep character that was very much concerned with people around him rather than adulation bringing candy to Michelle Obama. Oh, I thought that was cute. That was George W Bush there, right? Yeah. Yeah. If that isn't his dad, I mean, he was thinking about her you imagine how hard it is to have a funeral that goes on and on and on and on and on he George Hw Bush died they put him in a coffin they fly Air Force One down. They put him in the back. The whole family gets on board. They have a big ceremony in the laying in state in the rotunda the capital, then they have a giant parade to go to the national. The National Cathedral. He has to give a eulogy then they take the body after like the third Twenty-one cannon salute. They put him back on Air Force One. They fly to Houston where they're going to have a parade. And and and then another funeral. I I so hope that in the middle of all of this George W Bush went, hey, I need to stop at quik trip. And like was gas got sneakers? Bought it for Michelle Obama that would that would be the most Sirri bizarre thing for the guy running into how great is that. Can you imagine seriously thinking about a burying your father who you were close to and and having to go just through that? And yesterday, you have the clip Sarah just of the last part of his eulogy. Play this in his inaugural.
"national cathedral" Discussed on NewsRadio KFBK
"Readings and welcome back. Great to be back. Rush Limbaugh here behind the mic. After taking the day off yesterday. They're going to Washington to attend the general, George H W Bush the National Cathedral. First time inside the National Cathedral places just longer than a football field. Got television monitors all down the aisle. So that people could actually see what's going on. Because if you're not up close, you have no idea what's going on. And it was a little tough to hear at times because of the acoustics of the place and the limitations of my Cochlear implant, but it was deeply meaningful ceremony and a lot of ways. And I wanna I wanna try to capture something here today that I may take me two or three stabs at it. You know, I I I don't write things in advance. I find writing is very hard for me. I lose half my vocabulary when writing. Because I get distracted by Typos. I make and I my hands can't keep up with my brain. And I forget brilliant point. Now, forget it in ten seconds focused on what I'm trying to type. But when I speak I have my full vocabulary. And I have my full mental faculties is just the way I've developed and with the great patience of you people in this audience. Sometimes you give me two or three chances to nail it to get it. Right. I had so many. Emotions and thoughts wafting through me yesterday. Driving in flying in. Tending on the way out the atmospherics. You would not have believed the number of uniform military people inside the cathedral yesterday. And then to see the the camera farms of all the media scattered outside not inside. I think a very important distinction. Not inside. A lot of people who another cameras were they're televising. But I'm talking about individuals. We're we're getting to a point where I didn't gonna be long before the media is going to be the primary invited guests at funerals because of the coverage in the media is going to be there in the front row and the media's right behind the family, we're trending in that direction. But with this family that wasn't going to be the case. It's not intended as a slight to the media. Does misunderstand. I'm just sharing with you. Ali. Nations that I that I had juxtaposed with the. Ruminations about our culture and society, and where it's men and where it's headed. And I'll tell you what ignited. Didn't ignite. I had the thoughts yesterday. I was as I was there. But what what spurred me on to think about this today was a Daniel Henninger piece in the Wall Street Journal, and the headline is Trump didn't kill Bush values. The opposition to traditional values was evident at the nineteen Ninety-two convention in Houston. Hey convention. I attended by the way. So I know what you're talking about. As I read his piece, and what he's getting at here is an observation. Many people have made that this death and the tamarind media coverage of it is serving primarily as a vehicle for the media to wall up Donald Trump. And in doing so they are attempting to portray the past as perfect. The recent past the distant past as perfect, and then along came Trump to destroy it, all and Hennigan point is that you'll be because the media's focusing on all of this civility of the Bush presidency. The Bush family exhibited they never gave him credit for any of that. When they researching an office, George W Bush was never credited for his ability indecency, Anita was George H W Bush. And yeah, yeah. Yeah. We'll get I it happens. So fast on Wednesday Tuesday. I get a chance to tell you. I was doing an interview with Shannon bream. So we'll have the video highlights because it kind of dovetails what I'm going to try to say here. What we are hearing. Is that we have lost an era of civility in our politics and the Bush funeral and the company ING ceremonies. Illustrate. This loss. That our politics used to be far better than our politics used to be far more friendly. Then our politics used to be far more bipartisan back in the era of George H W Bush, which is why I kinda cracked with Shannon bream. Where's Obama in? This wasn't he settled in the sharp crease in the slacks. Skew now, Alabama feels listening to how civilized Bush was. Hey, what about me? What about me? Broke civilization back. Not nobody's crediting Obama. Which I find fascinating. What we saw yesterday at the National Cathedral, and what we are seeing right now there is another funeral for family and friends in Texas. It's in college station. Same players not the same eulogists. But it's it's basically a Texas family and friends James Baker had a tremendous eulogy, George W Bush with yet another one today. But what we saw yesterday. And I I don't think this is to find a point. I don't think it's a microscopic. Differentiation. I think it's big what we saw yesterday. Was a family's values. The Bush family values is what we saw yesterday and what we've seen all week. And what we are seeing today. We're not we're not really watching what used to be a better political period in our past because that better political period doesn't really exist. It's a media creation. To bash the president. George H W Bush was savaged like his son was savaged. Ann Richards, poor George. It was born with us over mile. That's at the democratic national convention. They were savagely attacking George W Bush, and George H W Bush referred to as a lap dog. He was ripped and criticized constantly. What we're watching today? And I think the real key here. We are watching what a family's value the Bush family. But wait, just not just them. Hang on. We're watching a families virtues and a family's values. And you know, what we're reminded of today and yesterday, we're not reminded what our politics was because it's never been what they're trying to tell you. It is what we are seeing what we are reminding ourselves what we are being reminded of is how our entire culture used to be how the entire American culture and society used to be. What we are watching. In this series of commemorations and funerals. Is a set of behavioral norms. And virtues and culture and societal behavior that used to define the entire country's society and culture, not a previous period in politics. Yes. The Bush family was political and their political lives. But before that, they had family values, and I don't mean to use this term as a as it's been constantly used over the years politically. The Bush family and the way they have conducted themselves. And this funeral is a throwback to the wave this country was in its normal state. And it is this set of values call it what you will this definition of human dignity or obsessively or just behavior is what this country was is what the distinct American culture was and all of the virtues that went into making it in defining it that is what has been lost not just in our politics. But throughout our culture. And the wars that we've been in that have resulted in these changes have been raging for much longer than when George H W Bush was president. Now Henninger is right that the Republican convention nineteen Ninety-two did did signal or herald, a major major point and in some people's estimations, the beginning of the modern era, culture war. But I think what everybody is missing here is that the media wants you to think of what you're looking at here is the way our politics used to be and all if it weren't for Donald Trump. We could get back that this is not what our politics used to be. This is what we used to be. This is what the United States used to be each and every day. These were the values and virtues that defined. Goodness, decency law abiding pursuing excellence being the best you can be family friends. How you treat people? Then that bled into our politics. That informed our politics, but politics is never been. A pure repository for whatever American culture was. And the reason for that is our politics is always had elements of communism in it. Our politics is always had elements of radical anti Americanism in it. That's not a criticism more. This observation the communist party has been attempting to infiltrate America through the political system the education system for years. And because of that our politics has always been to one degree or another corrupted. Now, what kept the communists at bay. What kept the militant leftist in the extremists in the Marxist at bay. Was the virtuous dominance. Of the United States of America and its inherent unique, culture and society and its virtues. None of what your present. In Marxism, communism, by definition. They're not. Well, the Bush family was not communist or Marxist, the Bush family was Representative some might say it exhibit leadership the Bush family was Representative. And we're watching we're watching if you stop to think about we're watching what this country at large in a vast. And it didn't matter. What race you are? Didn't matter. What religion you weren't? This was your culture. This was your set of values and your morality. This is how we defined decency. And virtue. No matter who you were in the United States of America. And that's what we're seeing here. That's the evidence that we've lost the examples here. But we're seeing this is what we're reminded that we lost. And again, I'm not I'm not saying that the bushes having to do with this. I'm just they happen because of the occasion of the death of the patriarch of their family. And the way they have decided to memorialize and honor him. We are seeing the way. The dominant American culture that. Those of us who've been alive long enough to remember it cherish and actively seek a return to if I might be so bold. And this is what the left cannot possibly understand. They can't understand you really want that while you elect a guy like Trump, they'll never understand that to them. That's one of the most gigantic contradictions. How can you think that a guy like Trump represents the values because as the only guy fighting you, and you people on the left of the reason we've lost. Our culture. You are the reason we have lost our sense of virtue and identity not Donald Trump. And it just. Hit me, I wouldn't say like a slap in the face because it's kind of been a slow evolution as to what I'm watching here. We were not watching political bipartisanship yesterday. That has never existed as it's being discussed, by the way. A nother series of media myths that at one time our politics was just like what you're seeing the Bush funeral yesterday to. No, it's never been that. Even in wartime. It's never been that for longer than a week. You're being misled. You're you're being lied to. You're having. Things presented to you in an obviously contradictory and confusing way. Because our politics has never been what we have watched on TV today and yesterday, that's how our country used to be. That is how our culture and society day today America is what we're watching play out in the way, the Bush family is honoring George H W Bush, the media politicises everything. So this can't be seen outside a political prison as far as they're concerned. And the way they look at this. They see a guy it Republican. There was a one term president. And raised taxes one day and that made him a good guy and that made him worth honoring. And that's the lesson that everybody needs to know that Republicans do good things when they go against their own initiatives and enjoying the other side. That's not what our politics has been. Our politics is never been filled with love and mutual respect and admiration all they want you to believe that it even during Reagan. They loved attempt. Sure, you've heard the stories Reagan and tip O'Neill after a tough day of arguing about tax cuts were nevertheless, sit down over an Irish, whiskey and reminisce about the great old days in Ireland. What a crock what an ever loving guy to called? Reagan an amiable dunce supposedly loved him and got together with him and shot the breeze over Jameson or some beers. Or what have you never happened? Niff- making. But our country. Was at one time like this. Are for the most part, the vast majority of our country had values traditions virtues like this. And if you're honest with yourself, and if you watch this, and you feel reminiscent you feel like we've missing something that this reminds you that's what it is. Not that our politics used to be this because it's never been members.

Reflecting on the Legacy of Former President George H.W. Bush
"The nation paid tribute to former President George Hw Bush on Wednesday with President Trump declaring a national day of mourning for his funeral services. The forty first president was eulogized by among others, his son. Former President George W Bush course, dad taught me a no special lesson. He showed me what it means to be a president who served with integrity leaves with courage and with love in his heart for the citizens of our country. When they history books are written. They will say that George H W Bush was a great president of the United States. A diplomat of unmasks killed a commander in chief of formidable accomplishment and a gentleman who executed to do these of his office with dignity and honour Wall Street Journal executive Washington editor Jerry Cy who covered the late president's term in office attended his funeral services on Wednesday. He joins us now to reflect on the life and legacy of former president, George H W Bush, Jerry, thank you so much for joining us. And for those of us who watched the ceremonies at home or at work on Wednesday. I wonder if you can start by just giving us a sense of what it was like to be there at the Washington National cathedral to witness this in person. Well, it was first of all a remarkable crowd that gathered there, you know, you have to remember George H W Bush left office. Quarter century ago twenty more than a quarter century ago in yet you had representatives from all across the world and all across American life there, which I think spoke of the kind of place that he holes in the American memory now, he's he's appreciated more. Now, I think it's fair to say, then he was when he left office, and that's true around the world you had Brian Mulroney. The former prime minister of Canada was eulogised because they became great friends. You had the Prince Charles of the United Kingdom there. You had the king of Jordan. You had the current German prime minister, and you had a whole assemblage of Americans of of significance in substance over the last thirty or forty years all gathered there, so I guess the first thing that struck me was there's only one man who could have brought this crowd together. And that's probably George H W Bush. The second thing that struck me was, you know, George Bush forty first president came to the Oval Office with maybe the best resume anybody's every carried into the Oval Office. He was vice president he was head of the CIA. Use UN ambassador. He was on voided China. He was a member of congress. He had run the Republican party. He was a successful businessman, and he had by most accounts an extraordinarily successful presidency. Lease on the foreign policy front. He oversaw the end of the Cold War, the unification of Germany and a successful Persian Gulf war, yet almost all the conversation. And almost all the eulogizing was about the kind of guy. He was in this word that former President George W Bush used in the clip we heard at the outset here decency. You kept hearing it over and over again his decency at his civility. And I thought it was striking that at a time. When people think a lot of that has been lost in the political debate. That's the thing that people kept coming back to when talking about George H W Bush and for you having covered his presidency. Were there any other particular moments during the ceremonies that resonated with you? I think it was it was that that he was an easy person to cover. For in the sense that he was approachable and really was kind of an open book, which you saw is what you got. Also, what struck me was the loyalty of the people who worked for him. I mean, all kinds of people that I hadn't seen in years and years made it back for this occasion. Which says something about the the way they felt about him. You know, there were a lot of jokes about things we used to joke about because, you know, reporters who I was White House reporter that. And there are pretty cynical lot. Usually we talked a lot about how he wasn't exactly silver-tongued. He was not the world's greatest public speaker. He would Bank lists words and use malapropisms frequently and we all joked about that and made fun of him for that..
"national cathedral" Discussed on Powerhouse Politics
"Good. Lone walk into a special edition of powerhouse politics. Maybe news chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl and ABC news, political director recline here that music. Right. That's not our usual music. It's a little somber. This is our special edition every dishes special. Let's be honest, but of the remembering of the life and memorial of George Herbert Walker Bush. I was out there in front of the National Cathedral for about twenty seven hours, or so it only seemed, you know, for for this for this, really amazing memorial. I mean, truly truly a moment in history. And I think a moment of -portant point in our politics. Washington stands still for presidential funerals. And it seems to me this one even more than most and they're happy. They don't happen that often. But this one particularly maybe because of the hype. Tenor of our politics right now it felt like the nation needed this. And it's been a heartening and edifying and special several days, remembering the forty first president of the United States, and to to my mind, John we casually throw around terms like end of an era. But this actually feels like it this feels like closing chapter of American history a wall, we're still writing a very uncertain next chapter in the thing that struck me about this memorial at the National Cathedral. Was you had some of the biggest political figures of our lifetimes? They're all assembled one roof some of whom had been bitter rivals some of whom allies some of them were rivals turned into allies. You had Bob Dole Bill Clinton Jimmy Carter. You had George W Bush, obviously. Jeb Bush in the same room with President Donald Trump. But this was a I thought profoundly non political event in serious contact trust to the to the memorial for John McCain. This seemed to be almost completely devoid of politics. And we know that this is exactly the way that George H W Bush wanted he felt like it was important statement to include the current president of the United States, notwithstanding very complicated family relationships between the president and the presidents club in the first lady's. And to my mind, it was a it was a heartening reminder of what the country is still capable of to take this moment to remember, a leader his generation a generation of leaders a moment in our not so distant past that feels like it was a really long time ago right now, and I had agreed on that this. It felt separate from our political moment it felt separate. From anything going on in politics, and there is something profoundly moving and and patriotic and maybe up lifting as an American to see those presidents and generations of ambitious politicians as you save rivals, friends enemies frenemies.
"national cathedral" Discussed on KFI AM 640
"Okay. So that's Friday. Now right now, we're awaiting at the National Cathedral. The funeral George Hw and the first eulogy you'll be given by his son, President Bush, former President Bush forty three and we're going to carry that live. So let me spend a minute talking about George Bush's legacy and the past claims some of them are just fine. Even though he got ripped for doing that. I mean, one of the remember he got sick and he vomited on the prime minister's lap in Tokyo that was really embarrassing. And then he came down the steps of Air Force One. And he tripped. And then he was seeing in one photo with a tuxedo and the tuxedo. The pants were four inches too short. And he look like a dork none of that his fault. And so he had a few of those gaffes one of them is what happened when he was at the national grocers association convention in one thousand nine hundred during the campaign and the New York Times reported he was amazed by the grocery store scanner after he left office. He called the times article ugly in inaccurate slopes. The debunking website said that. Yeah. That was an inaccurate. Dow article, and what he did is he signed his name on an electronic pad used to detect forgeries and the president ASO's some guy comes in and spells George Bush's differently. Could you catch it? Yeah. He was told and he shook his head and wonder I mean, that's just great then he grabs a quarter of milk. A light bulb of bag of Kennedy and runs them over the scanner. And the look of wonder flickered across his face because there was the price up on the screen, and he said, wow, this is for checking out I took a tour through the exhibits here and amazed by some of the technology. I what did you do the first time you experience a scanner? And you say that was kinda neat. Weren't you like impressed? And it's why it's a while George Bush does the same thing nineteen Ninety-two. Scanners were not that prevalent nine hundred ninety two and he's nailed for being impressed and wild by it. So come on, really. I mean, that's the kind of stuff he gets it. Just he got let let's say a little bit of neg-. Publicity. Now, the important stuff that he is known for let me start with the negative and probably the biggest negative, and that's his role in the Iran contra scandal. If you remember Ron contra scandal was President Reagan's attempt to get out to ha- fight the contras in Nicaragua. And he cut a deal to send them arms, which by the way, congress made illegal through Iran, and he sent money to Iran, or he sent the arms to Iran money went to the contras circumventing the law and Reagan eventually took responsibility for it. George Bush said I knew nothing about it. I was out of the loop. He was in the loop. He was apprised of it. Because that was the biggest scandal of the Reagan administration. Well that one we're gonna nail him for. Now, the stuff that he's being given credit for is he actually navigated the end of the Cold War. The fall of the wall the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union. And it could have been a lot more agree GIS on behalf of the entire world. Actually, James Baker secretary state in the interview secretary state said what George Bush did is make sure the collapse of the Soviet Union. A went out with a whimper and not with a bang. It could have easily been a very big deal and the President George Bush said we're not going to dance on the grave of the Soviet Union. We're going to let this go on had a very close relationship with Gorbachev. And he's given enormous credit. And of course, the first Gulf war where he is given credit for building the coalition of thirty one countries to fight Saddam Hussein. And there was no issue about the. The either manufactured Elliott at that point manufactured weapons of mass destruction business that George Bush forty three had and so a legitimately George Hw is going to be considered already being considered the most successful one term president history the United States. And as Jane Baker said he is probably going to be considered one of our best. President history is going to treat him. Very very, well, I'm looking at a live shot now of Washington on the way to the National Cathedral and people were lining the streets. American flags are being put up at every lamppost. The procession is coming in. Obviously it is. It's led by a whole phalanx of police officers on motorcycles. And it's a state funeral. And this is what George Bush wanted and the interest. Part of this is every single bit of this universal is a combination of what the manual says.
