Has Been like a brother to me since I was twelve years old I know the man I know the competitor I know the artist no, the teacher there's a lot of train for us to cover a lot of Nixon crannies to explore but I thought we would begin with Maurice the Jamaican and I was hoping you could describe for us your beginnings and we could start with the with the genesis while yes I was born in Jamaica. Island. Not the area of Quaid's and I grew up there. I was there until I was twelve years old before I came to this country. But probably, the most significantly got happened for me in. Jamaica. Was the fact that my mother left Jamaica to come to the United. States, when I was two years old, my brother was ten. My sister was seven months old and.

One of Nixon's people turns the Bobby and ask a casual question. So, what have you guys done to prepare all nothing too involved present knows the stick to the major topics I think will be fine. The staffer shakes his head. Rephrase the question. What have you done to prepare for the cameras? What have you done? Who is look? In his dressing room, JFK's assistant helps him get ready hearing the conversation in the hallway. JFK yells at his assistant in a loud voice. No makeup. Please I'll be fine.

Human Computer Interaction and Online Privacy
"My Name is Moses Namara I am a PhD candidate in University Walk Online privacy career, investigating people with experiences on expectations of online privacy I am. Originally from Uganda was pointing, follow on came to the useful known I'm on my way to getting that beauty, and when it comes to online privacy. Can you be a bit more specific? Are you concerned with things like the SSL level or a user's relationship to their browsers? Where your interests lie, my interests fly A. Team, so I'm coming in not at the technical aspect of privacy, but I'd be used experience aspect of privacy, and so the key question being held. We hope uses money to privacy online as most our lives transition to use of nine technologies. Yeah, in particular, has the you know, covid nineteen in the stay at home orders, and all these sorts of things. How has that affected the privacy? World has a fictive privacy in terms of most people now being forced to interact connects through various forms of technology, really honest, various forms students having to download and use online technologies. Stay in touch with teachers to parents. Adults having to Donald Shishir, meet the I in terms of. With the news better so making sure that they can connect with other people that no money they would have meant Christopher's physically. So in terms of how effective privacy is that? We're seeing a lot of people now. Adopting new technologies, they haven't used all use mobile technologies higher rate than they would know. Maybe do, and so that definitely being what technology they end up using presents, different privacy, issues and challenges. Is Privacy I don't know the truth to this. I'm not an immunologist. Human being stayed home for two weeks. You know the virus would be effectively defeat, even though that's kind of impossible, if everyone used two factor authentication and some simple protocols, would that solve privacy? No different in you hoping tons of protecting people's access to their online accounts online logging online, they need to log into right, but that's the security level in terms of offering people the option to actually secure log into their accounts and making sure archaeology, the possums were trying to request or log into the account, so that help secure the data in one aspect, the other aspect in terms of privacy is that we biscuit looking at the data that they explicitly maybe give to the technology will looking I at the data that the technology that they're using requires for you to function. Function with looking at the data that is not explicitly given by the user, but implicitly in five by the technology right based on different, maybe algorithms that use, and so we are looking at all these different aspects in terms of holidays uses to come into play on. How do we ensure weather? That access is restricted to only people who the used as comfortable sharing with all having people here? This is a really interesting comparison. You guys have in the paper that that will talk I'm sure a lot about privacy at a glance, the user centric design of glance data exposure visualizations. To impact there, but if you start with, could you expand on the difference there between privacy in terms of settings and privacy of data what say user giving up in each case I guess. Privacy in terms of sittings are basically the control is that guide enable uses to set or let be known what level of privacy they're comfortable with, and this is usually enabled by technology that they're using so these technologies like a social media. Company will site like this because controls that enable people to sit with the one I share Nixon, that fitting that level, and so this is hoping that way then we have privacy in terms of the data, so the data is basically any use of using information beyond what the primary purpose was, and so I think that's where the issue comes in comes of using this data in other secondary Rewe's deviant of the primary ways that someone has. To be used what I like to think about when I think about did yeah, when I'm installing an APP I'm often being asked. Do you give it permissions for your camera or this or that? And often it'll say you know access to contact the Internet, which is such a weird Pandora's box to me. You know it a weather APP THAT'S GONNA! Talk to the weather server and get the weather for my zip code, or is it an APP that's going to? Be All of my private data and send it to the mothership. I've never felt like I really had a good I could be turned that on her off, but I never had a full control setting. Is that something you envision that? Maybe users would get more control of or do we trust that the user can manage those controls maybe too complicated I don't know what do you think so? That's a sexually good that you raised that because my research looks at what is the comfortable level at which uses able to engage and uses controls, but festival demo countries. You have the more less likely achieve all. All those controls because yesterday, a huge number of them on so that requires quick native, if looked to the ARCUS, fully seek out of control is unused them appropriately, but at the same time we need such was in place, because then uses a able to explicitly kind of make the edition non or set a liberal privacy comfortable. We've now the trick becomes the paradox becomes. We have these countries in place, but we have fewer people using them right, and so it becomes a question of. How do we meet these needs where they are on? How do we ensure that they are motivated enough to actually? Understand what this is due on. Be Able to actually go unused him comfortably. So
Mayors Threatens to Sue If Trump Sends Fed Officers to Patrol NYC, Chicago
"Of Chicago and New York of threatened to take President Donald Trump to court if he sends government agents to police cities, trump sent federal law enforcement officers to Portland and weeks of anti-racism protests there and he's also threatened to do the same in many other cities across the nation, the move to send agents in camouflage. Camouflage uniforms has been criticized by officials in Oregon, and also by the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Well, joining me for more on this is Scott Lucas professor of politics at the University of Birmingham Scott was good. Have you on the show now? There's a couple of things I'd like to understand here for example when these these forces were sent to Portland in Oregon. Are they working with police on the ground or they just flown in an trying to take control of the streets. How does it work when you send these offices in? In normal cases, the way that it should work is that the intervention is coordinated. With local authorities with his the political leaders, and with the leaders of security forces, including the police. That's the way it was done. The last time there was a national emergency amidst and uprising, which was in Los Angeles in Nineteen ninety-two after the beating of Rodney, King. This time is not known. Donald Trump and his inner circle, including Attorney General, William Bar and Chad. Wolf of Homeland Security. Sent in these forces, many of whom are not in March uniforms. Who are in unmarked vehicles symptomen without consultation with the Mayor of Portland Ted Wheeler without consultation with Oregon Governor Brown without consultation full consultation with the heads of police there in other words, this is close to being an occupying force brought in from Washington not to restore law and order as much as it is to try to quash these protests in pursuit of other goals and I would say the primary goal is the election of Donald Trump I. want to give out not because. I guess he's you say he's not playing to. The audience in the city is playing to. A national audience and he seems to be trying to get across his notion that. The Republicans and himself a good at standing up to questions and issues around law and order, whereas the Democrat is being held hostage by demonstrators on the streets and are unable to do anything to to to quell. Disturbances. Windows being smashed on stores, rare occurrences, but these are the things that he's focusing on. Your I mean this is not an entirely new playbook. In the nineteen fifties. You would say that your opponent supported the communist in the era of McCarthyism. Richard Nixon was very effective in the nineteen sixties and early nineteen seventies before Watergate at playing at the idea that protests were directed by extremist in by Anti American. Elements Russ he represented the silent majority. But if this is done entirely new playbook, this is definitely a new chapter. Because the extent to which Donald Trump has said that he does not recognize any check on his authority He said back in April Dirt Win Corona Virus, researching I want to take total control. He in the past week has consulted John you a lawyer. Most renowned for writing the torture memo in the George W Bush administration about ruling by decree in other words. This is not. Not An attempt to work through courts, not to work through Congress, it is to bypass every institution and to do it with this false. This false sense that the protests are dominated by violence by extremist, an anarchist when in five from the very start the black lives matter protests after the murder George Floyd have been largely peaceful, and that has been the case in Portland as well. A CRAWLER! This is in many cities are the police are being much more cautious about how they get involved with citizens on the streets, or they are deliberately trying to hold back from demonstrators fulfil of causing issues, but in the background, not from demonstrators in the background this the has in some cities like New York seen an uptick in in for example in violent crime and gun crime, so does he have a point? Point that you know there there is a there is a maybe in some cities. A crime wave is a is a bit of an emotive word. Maybe an uptick in crime. The actually someone might build to buy. It doesn't quite know how to deal with for example in New York. No, I mean we have had an increase in in shootings in places like Chicago. Atlanta and New York but you have quote upticks. As parts of regular patterns of crying growing up in this case amidst corona virus admits the tension which has been stoked by trump. It's not surprising that you might have an increase interest, but this is not due to the withdrawal of the police from the streets. There's absolutely no linked to that. The police were on the streets of New York there on the streets of Chicago streets of Atlanta, the issue that is there and has been raised by black lives matters. How do you have effective policing effective policing does mean trying to prevent shootings trying to crime, but it also means trying. Trying to do so working with the community responsibly, and not with the police acting violently, and that issue is being handled by not by trump a by state, local leaders in places like Minneapolis and places like Seattle and places like Atlanta they are trying to pursue a new type of policing that can actually deal with this with the long term, and not for the purpose of a soundbite with Donald trump screams, law and order even as he's trying to undermine it.
Newt Gingrich and the Start of an Era
"This feels like an episode out of like not just a recent. It's not the recent past. Past the distant past I mean newt is still with us, but this is a very different time for newt, and I think that for many people he started to really appear on People's radars outside of Georgia in the early ninety s with a contract for America, but your book predates that so the book starts in the Nineteen Eighties when you Gingrich. Is this young? Young Congressman who comes from Georgia. He's elected in Nineteen, seventy eight, and any comes to Washington ready to just tear everything down to shake things up to do whatever necessary to help. Republicans become a majority in the House of Representatives which they had not been since nineteen fifty four, and he's intent on a not listening to senior members of the Party and to really. Really taking on the Democrats in ways that they had not been comfortable with, and so he makes a name for himself very quickly, even though he's not part of the leadership in the early eighties. Okay, so you're a history. Professor Newt Gingrich Thought of himself as a history professor and was a history professor, but what exactly did he teach? How did his academic career? Career fit in with his political career well, he received his PhD until Lane. After attending undergraduate school in Emory and Gingrich wrote his dissertation on Belgian colonialism, and he wrote about how and why colonial government had failed to modernize local education and nurture an elite that was capable of sustaining economic growth, and what was remarkable about the dissertation in retrospect, which is what he spent. Spent his academic time on was that he was critical of the design of Belgian policies, rather than on the merits of colonialism, which were much less interest to him, but but that wasn't really his his main focus. I mean as soon as he gets to West Georgia College. That's his first job as a professor. He's deeply uninterested in the academic life I think in. In his first year as a professor, he applies to be the president of the university. He then wants to be share the department and he's impatient with the slowness of academia He quickly gains a thirst for the life of politics, and that's really what engages him, and in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy four. He decides to run against the incumbent in his district. District John Flint who's an old southern Democrat. What are nudes politics like growing up? Because he conservative early on, and did his conservative ideology remained consistent throughout his life. Yeah, he comes from a working class family. The family's originally from Harrisburg. His father left his mother while she was pregnant with him, so he didn't have much of a relationship with him. He is raised. primarily by his stepfather, who's in the military, so Gingrich spends a lot of his youth travelling around. He's what we call an Army Brat, and lives in different places in Europe before the family finally settles in Georgia, which is the final stop? He's a Rockefeller Republican during the nineteen sixties. He he is conservative, but he is interested in Republicans like Nelson Rockefeller and then Richard Nixon who had ambitions of building a big Republican coalition as FDR had done for Democrats in the Nineteen Thirties. He doesn't really make a hard right. Right, turn until about nineteen seventy five I'm what prompts that well. He ran for the first time unsuccessfully in nineteen, seventy, four against flint. Then he's getting ready to run against Flint again in nineteen seventy six, and he meets some people associated with the conservative movement like Paul Way Rick. Who's running these camps for up and coming Republicans and he like many young Republicans starts to become enamored with what's this conservative movement that's bubbling up in America and talking about the need to dismantle government to be much more aggressive on national. National Security and this is when he starts to shift to what will eventually be the Reagan Revolution? Would you say that his guiding principles were firmly aligned with Reagan conservatism, or were there differences there? There were differences. Gingrich for example is much more concerned about environmental issues even in the early nineteen eighties than a lot of Reagan Nights, are he? He actually takes those kinds of policies much more seriously, but generally he lines up by the time he's in the house. He believes in tax cuts. He believes in deregulation. Deregulation, he believes importantly in a very muscular approach to fighting the Soviet Union and to fighting allies in places like Central America so though there are differences between him, and and some of the hard core inner circle of the Reagan administration. Generally they line up pretty well

Fight and also calls for a carbon free power sector in 15 years. Environmental groups say the regulatory rollbacks could threaten public health and make it harder to code. Global warming.

We're cutting the federal permitting timeline for a major project from up to 20 years. Or more hard to believe down to two years or less. The National Environmental Policy Act is credited with keeping big construction projects from fouling the environment. On Wall Street. Today, the

Noose found in Bubba Wallace's garage stall, NASCAR says
"Now? Mike Greenberg Bristol with you this morning. And as I said right off the top of the show, I would have loved to have started with any of those today, and we certainly will get to the mall, but we begin with an absolutely despicable story coming from the world of NASCAR. In this developing story, a noose was found in bubba Wallace's. Stall at the NASCAR race in Talladega Alabama yesterday less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR to ban the confederate flag NASCAR announced the news last night well after the race had been postponed due to inclement weather, and said it was launching an immediate investigation here. was there statement late this afternoon? Nascar was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the forty three eighteen. We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough. How seriously we take this heinous act! We have launched an immediate investigation and we'll do everything we can to identify the persons responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism and NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all while himself tweeted a statement last night, which read in. In part today's despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened, and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism. As my mother told me today, they are just trying to scare you. This will not break me. I will not give enor- rely back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe. In Allah Marty Smith is covering this for us in the scene in Talladega. He joined us an hour ago. The News in Bubbas garage stall was actually seen by a member of his team. Darrell Bubba never saw it. He never saw it personally and win. That team members saw it. He alerted NASCAR. And Nascar immediately had a meeting of its senior executive staff, and they made the decision that they were going to remove this person from the sport as quickly and rapidly as possible. This was not a situation where a fan might have meandered in on this because there were no fans in the garage. So what you're looking at is you're looking at team members. You're looking at officials. You're looking at potential security. You're looking at maybe cleaning personnel that have access to these garage areas. Again! That was Marty Smith with US earlier. Lebron James among many who posted messages about this. He tweeted sickening Wallace, my brother! No, you don't stand alone I'm right here with you as well as every other athlete, I just want to continue to say how proud I am of you for continuing to take a stand for change here in America and sports at Nascar. I salute you as well. Well Sprint Cup driver Michael McDowell added. God help us the level of evil. It takes to do something like this is disgusting. This is enraging and heartbreaking all at the same time Dale. EARNHARDT Jr. tweeted simply a hope of a wins it tomorrow again. The race will be run today. It was delayed by weather yesterday, and as I bring Steven A. and Marcus into the conversation here I'll. Repeat that the area in which this was discovered, there were cameras all over it should be. Relatively easy investigation for the NASCAR officials to conduct, and we are standing by for any information live from Talladega Marty Smith will bring us anything as soon as there is any further news with that thought in mind, Stephen. We've not yet had a chance to say good morning to you I. I just want to give you the floor here. What are your feelings and thoughts as we see this story developed from last night? Well I. Mean I think that for me? Personally I'm a little bit different than the kind of sentiments that have been expressed by a lot of people, because obviously you find this reprehensible and disgusting, and it's incredibly sad, and we get all of that but there's a forgive the the figurative smirk that might end up covering my face or draping my face because to me. Me It's just folks displaying the ignorance, and the more they put it on display, the more it enlightens a lot of people in White. America about what Black America has been telling them about for so many years decades spanning centuries for crying out loud. This is not new. This is something that we've known existed for all time. This is something we know we'll continue to exist. And there is no way around it and so this there comes a point in time where you have to accept that reality one of the things that I would encourage everybody to go watch. If you get an opportunity, you can go on Netflix. You can watch that documentary thirteen by EVA do vernay along with others, sensational job of address mass incarceration in the United States, of America one of the things they highlighted. Is that under the Nixon? Administration where you're literally talking about you know White folks that are hippies and you associate them with marijuana and you associate black. Black folks with crack cocaine, and as a result of that will ultimately galvanize folks in your favor, because they'd be scared to death, and you'd be hearing words like law and order ad, nauseam that was in the sixties for crying out loud in two thousand and twenty, and we're hearing the same thing now. You just have to open your eyes. You have to pay attention to the parallels you have to. You have to pay attention to the correspondence. That's taking place right before your very eyes throughout history, we have had people that have been adroit at light laying low. Controlling the narrative, manipulating the narrative switching things to their favor, all in an effort to maintain or to retain power. It's something to kind of thing that has been taking place in. Usually they've been incredibly skilled at remaining in the dark and saying it's then it's not us, it's them. It's not us well guess what are coming to light more and more in this day and age I find that a cause for celebration, not a 'cause. You know to be saddened by anything. The I find these to be. Beautiful tops as difficult as it may be the fact that I nation appears to be becoming more enlightened than ever before and ultimately as a result. We're coming together. I find that to be a huge plus not a minus. If the ignorance has to show itself, and if the ignore, it has to showcase themselves in order for this to happen coming out of the dock to me. That's of course was celebration Marcus. Stephen. That's what I alluded to earlier man just come on out. Show us who you are, so we know how to deal with you and everybody. That's four. Right knows how to deal with you. Look listen, this is. There has been. We've been having this conversation for a long time. I mean we had this conversation we had. This conversation went capped kneeled about police brutality. We talked about racing all of them and man you. You look if you look around and social. There were people literally Oh twitter last night. Say A BUBBLE! Did this for attention? What what are you talking about like? It's not. It's not unfathomable that someone could do that. We sold Jesse's me. Make reference to that because people can conjure up things to create narratives to make people overreact. That's why saying earlier. Estimate I'm not doing this emotional. Rollercoaster I'm getting off of it right like I'm nuts and bolts to was going on. There is progress that needs to be made in this country I'm focusing on that progress that needs to be made. That's what bubble wireless is focused in on a by making his statements in Nascar. That's a lot of athletes are focused on a lot of people in society in general of focused on making sure that we draw a line between racist people and people that one good for everybody. That's the bottom line. Look for as much as this is egregious and the things that have transpired for low type. I grew up in the south light. It's not. An uncommon for me to see racist people are know what it looks like or even even be surprised or shocked about certain things that tend to happen. The bottom line is this. I'm often emotional roller coaster like if you racist just be that come out publicly and be that enlist separate that and you be a part of the minority port society that we want to get to, and we think we already are at so all of that being said I'm with Steve Day like in this bringing a lot of people to the light, and the hateful ones are fighting their battle because they see slipping away. Score you're not GonNa hear me say this very very often, but I wanNA give major major kudos to a Lotta. White folks out there in America because if it wasn't for them, protesting and marching with black individuals if it wasn't for them, you know engaging in the kind of of of you know resistance to whatever level of oppression we as black people have been feeling this nation I. Don't think some of these folks will. will be coming out I. mean listen the back. In the day. They used to wear the sheets and used to cover the identity and their faces that we didn't know who the hell they were by virtue of that now. Some black people, a lot of black people will tell you they exist in corporate America. They could be the very people that you're working for the very people that you're talking to I happen to be. Be Blessed we happen to be blessed to not certainly not have that at this company is because we've seen the actions on the part of our executives. And what have you over continuous basis? Elevated level of sensitivity that this place has shown throughout the years deserves to be commended. There's always work to do. There is no perfect place. Make no about it, but I'm incredibly proud to be a part of the Walt Disney and And specifically the ESPN family in that regard having set all of that I'm in the minority, because the reality is vast people, there's a vast number of people of African. American descent in the United States of America that feel subjugated I wouldn't go so far as to say enslaved, but feel subjugated by bosses in corporate America people that say all the right things when the cameras are rolling, but behind the scenes they engage. Eight your and the conduct. Subjugation that they devote their voiceless. They don't have a voice in that regard, green. Marcus knows exactly what I'm talking about. And so because of that because of these times that we're living, what we're seeing is a populous within the United States of America that sees the dramatic shift, and there's so appalled, and and put and taken aback by what they see transpiring that they can't hide their vitriol. They're coming out of the dock because they're being forced out of the dog. We as black people. People have to appreciate the fact that couldn't happen without a vast number of white individuals in our society standing with us and saying you know what we see where the hell you coming from. If we didn't see it before we see it now, and we're with you, so you have that other segment of the population saying wait a minute we lose some of our own here. Some of our own alternative guests and the poor in this noxious. We gotTA speak up and as a result. Of the dock again I find that a cause for celebration doesn't bother me at all. If we wore, we wore. Let's get it on. I liked that. I want to leave it there for the moment again. Marty Smith is standing by Talladega. If there is any further information on the investigation, we will have it for you immediately, meanwhile, Steven as going to stay with us here for a few more minutes, and we'll get some football conversation as we go his feelings about the Dallas, cowboys have been well documented. This should be a very big day in Dallas. We will talk about it and why and then Lebron and other NBA players have until Wednesday to decide whether or not they're going to play. What should we expect? Woge will answer that question as we continue this out. GET THEM ON ESPN. GEICO. GETS YOU ACCESS TO LICENSED AGENTS? Twenty four
Trump holds 1st rally in 110 days amid pandemic; empty seats abound as he says silent majority is 'stronger than ever'
"It was president trump's first first campaign campaign rally rally since since the the beginning beginning of of this this whole whole covert covert nineteen nineteen pandemic pandemic and and of of course course the the largest largest reported reported gathering gathering since since then then well well he he borrowed borrowed a a quote quote from from the the late late president president Nixon Nixon describing his supporters as quote a silent majority will that despite a large number of empty seats in Tulsa's be okay center which at capacity what holds nineteen thousand Mr trump blamed the media and protesters for the less than full house on Twitter activist group anonymous claims K. pop stans were responsible for trolling the president and ordering the tickets for the empty seats and then the New York times is reporting tick tock users also had a hand in snapping up those tickets causing again those empty seats look agency then there was the part where the president said he'd asked advisors to do less corona virus testing to keep case number is low even though experts agree that more testing is the best way to control and contact trace never mind the fact that Tulsa has seen a sharp spike in novel corona virus cases last week alone just before the rally word came down that six of the president's own staffers in Tulsa had been diagnosed with it and another surprise he mentioned new Jersey's governor Phil Murphy I was actually with a very nice man very good man he was very liberal the governor of New Jersey right we now know listen he said to me something that's amazing New Jersey was very heavily hit very hard hit thousands of people he said with thousands of people to die thousands of people there was only one person that died under the age of eighteen would you believe that which tells me one thing the kids are much stronger than us while president trump also took the time to criticize pro football players for their national anthem protests and he's not pleased that the NFL commissioner will allow the next well I like Roger Goodell but I didn't like what he said a week ago I said whether that comes from in the middle of the summer nobody is even asking we will never we will we will tool in here to the U. S. should make flag burning a crime even though the supreme court already ruled that burning the American flag is a protected form of free speech that happened back in nineteen eighty nine the president again defending monuments that honor Confederate leaders left wing is trying to vandalize our history desecrate our monuments are beautiful Confederate statues have been removed in several cities following anti racism protests sparked by George Floyd brutal killing in Minneapolis
Why 'Cryptocurrency Would Not Exist Without Black People'
"Actually WanNa ask you about this one tweet storm that you wrote and it began. CRYPTOCURRENCY would not exist without blind people. You explain to people what it is. He wrote there yeah, yeah, yeah, absolutely, and this was a talk. That I did at after a while I was even ignorant, so we talk about you know tokenism. You know a continuation of the evolving form of housing transfer body right, and that's from a lot of different different things, different peoples different cultures right, so it's not just say black people are the sole reason why cryptocurrency exist, but it is to say that the prevalence of Fiat currency only came into fruition through the US government in two particular historical instances made this happen one the funding of union troops right during the civil war who desperately needed feet this out at the time, which was one of the economic centers in the world. I don't think people realize how much fuel the cotton and textile. Textile Industry in the loan industries that came off of that globally a really created. Will they accommodate be happy that and created the financial centers like New York in fact back then there were more millionaires per capita. I believe in Mississippi than there were New York and in in this has changed over time in that experiment ride that Abraham Lincoln took in leveraging Fiat currency, which was more broadly understood as we all agree, this has value rather than being backed by or silver like the pound lead into the Nixon years where we quite literally came off the gold standard after establishing it. And this is the history right of how money has evolved in how Tokens Ation where we see the token ization of assets and even you know stable coins in terms of store value money. That, that's the evolution in its follow, and that some of the people the first people who were securitise were also black people We look at Monticello and Thomas Jefferson that was funded trauma loan, collateralized by slaves and also built by slaves. So the complexities in terms of how finances evolve very deeply intertwined into this systemic racism, you know that I call it on and that people you know unfortunately push off as or minimise as a well. They said the inward or well. They didn't let this person into this complex right in. It's really a lot more out. Actually love to be called the inward half systemic racism gone. in in a have the superficial racism right exists I can deal with that mentally and emotionally. You know, but but the constraints of the systemic aspect has quite literally change people's life trajectories in terms of whether they can be an entrepreneur whether they could be hired. How much access to credit they get and how that affects their lively. I don't know if people know this story, but Senator Cory Booker from new. Jersey often talks about this in his life trajectory where. Parents had been looking for a home in a suburb of New Jersey that had good schools, and it was considered a white neighborhood, and they kept being told that these houses that they thought were on sale were not available and this organization I can't remember They must have just worked on like fairness in housing or something. got white people to go as decoys after they had gone to these houses and found that the houses were suddenly available and this. This kept happening and so eventually they picked how they wanted, and when they should have to sign the papers, the sellers were surprised because they thought it was getting a white couple buying it, and that was foul. Corey ended up at you. Know in this great school district. Of course he lake went to Stanford. Was Ruth scholar went to Yale Law School now as a USA I mean he's like you know super successful, but yeah, that's just one story about. How systemic racism or in that case, the the fight against it or winning the fight against it in one instance did have a positive outcome.

"In, which members were recruited by this racist police chief William Parker from the Mississippi Delta. That would kind of get themselves in the mood for patrolling South Central. Los Angeles by saying. Let's shoot a mother fucker tonight and when? The commission that investigated the riots McCone Commission federally interviewed this Guy. William Parker the police chief in in Los Angeles. He said it only happened. Because one of those monkeys picked up a rock, and then everyone else started picking up rocks. So this is this is the kind of thing that people in Watts for living with, but to America didn't know that White. America didn't know that there was just much much. Much much less awareness. We have this new poll. Finding that fifty two percent of Americans agree that that blacks are treated worse than police. You never would have seen that in nine hundred and sixty five, it would have been totally a shock, and then suddenly it's happening every summer. There are more riots in nineteen, sixty six, a massive right in Cleveland Sixty seven. You have riots in which dozens of people died. Sixty eight the riots after Martin Luther King and this kind of seemed to be this kind of permanent fixture and one thing that that. Reactionary right-wing Democrat and Republican politicians. Picked up on. Was this argument that this is almost kind of caused by Great Society legislation that? Basically ungrateful bastards don't know how good they have it and you know one of the guys who who said this was Senator Sam Ervin of North Carolina who later became a liberal hero during the Watergate hearings, but he was a segregationist politician, and he said the more laws. You Pass, the more violence we get. An right now. What's happening? Is happening after like a ten year period. Of movements against police violence, a quite effective movement You know we've seen a film about Oscar grant who is shocked by the transit police in the bay area. We saw a wonderful movie. Queen slammed. The came out last year. About a couple that shoots a cop self defense and it's just people are much much much more aware of the racist tragedy of policing in the United States, so you can't really you know this and you see all striking outpouring of sympathy I mean. Did you see the letter that lack lackland? Murdoch sent to Foxx Employees Yeah. It'd be nice if he sent it to his talent he's you know on the air, but yeah, no, it was..

"The country for fallen rebel candidates, and would talk about thugs and hoodlums, and said you know if you want. This stuff to end vote from these Republicans, and if you want more of the same for the Democrats and very much like Joe Biden now, it's kind of ironic because this speech that he gave his living room, one of the most prominent Democrats Senator Edmund Muskie. Who basically had been Hubert Humphrey's running mate in nineteen, sixty eight. gave the speech calling for compassion calling for calm. Give a wonderful democratic speech about voting for your interests instead of voting your fears. and. The Republicans did terrible. A way underperformed expectations, so there's no hard and fast. Rule in American politics. That Calling for law and orders. The winner I mean George H W Bush tried it nine, hundred, ninety, ninety, two after the La Riots, he said this is what happens when you Kowtow to liberal left wing activists, and Bill Clinton said he has to go back twelve years to make his argument right because you know Republicans have been in office for twelve years, so if Donald. Trump is trying to make an argument..

"Understanding that period in American history, and there's nobody better to inform us in that then work pearlstine. Rick Pearlstine. Thank you so much for being with US campaign HQ, it's an honor David well, as I mentioned in the Intro I just loved your book. Nixon land the rise of a president and the fracturing of America. I was the reason I read it. Is President Barack. Obama said I had to read it. He was a big fan of it and a lot of us in the White House. Red It back in eleven and twelve so I'd love to get your perspective on. Well you'd probably don't know this, but I'm curious. How much of what trump and his administration and his campaign are doing right now, do you think is based on studying what? Nixon did back both in sixty particularly leading into his reluctant seventy two I. Mean I think that he thinks that he is doing what Richard Nixon did and sixty eight seventy two, but he's he's. As in so many things, not very effective student. Nixon was if nothing else in incredibly disciplined tactically shrewd strategically. Careful guy, you know. He used to have a saying never lose your temper unless it's on purpose. He used to a game plan press conferences by coming up with questions that might be asked writing out answers and memorizing them, so it's Kinda hard to imagine donald trump. Doing that, but in the same way, Richard Nixon and also Ronald Reagan. were very skilled and very careful about The old dog whistle you know reaching out to voters who might support policies that shall we say delivered disparate impact to African American communities. Without making people who support them feel like bigots and you know mega loves the African Americans as not quite at that level of accomplishment. Shall we say yeah right so I? Mean talk about you know so. In Sixty eight Democrats had held the White House for eight years Kennedy and Johnson so Nixon was a challenger. So that's a difference. Maybe the biggest difference Nixon was much more skilled then trump. Could be, quite. Crude off Mica but on Mike. Much more skilled, so talk about so yeah, trump's using the word silent majority. He's clearly engaging in dog whistles. He's clearly trying to suggest there's a liberal minority hoard out there. That's going to ransack your home in your community and you need to be scared, so he's trying to scare people, but talk about what you think..
How did America get to its current state?
"The scenes across the US in the past week or so, they have been profoundly disturbing heavenly. The protests are in response to the horrifying image of George. Floyd an African American man and Minneapolis. Police officer who killed him by kneeling on his nick for close to nine minutes to spot. He's pleased that he could not brave. Those demonstrations as we all know turned into, want him violence and destruction, not only in the twin cities, but all across American CDs. Today's are quiet and peaceful, but it's really the evenings in the night, so usually bring that fury. Those frustrations attend to boil over in the results or these fiery clashes that we've seen across the country, and of course here in New York. We've already seen dozens of people injured. Hundreds of people arrested in tonight. The expectation is that we could see more of these demonstrations. How did America get to this point? And who precisely are Antioch, the militant left wing political protest movement that part of these rights. Face because Nazis, thank. and. That is a very bad thing because harass people Lemay Organiz they kill. People hurt people. They fight people. And we're the ones who fighting back there. The second coming of Hitler for several decades America has I deeply divided nation. Just go back to the mid to late nineteen sixties when America experienced those long hot summers, protests and riots, Vietnam Rice and Martin. Luther King's assassination. The American people are deeply disturbed. They're baffled and dismayed by the wholesale looting and violence. That has occurred both in small towns and then great metropolitan centres. No society can tolerate massive violence. Anymore than a body can tolerate massive disease to me that black people are in the streets. Has Do the lives air force lead in this country? And unfortunately lead these lives by the indifference and the apathy. And a certain kind of ignorance, willful ignorance on the part of their citizens. According to British historian Max Hastings Pass guest on this show in those days quote. It seemed that rice the election and the Vietnam. War would tearing asunder the greatest country on earth. And to think is deep divisions in America have clearly grown since the sixties especially in the trump era, just think of that toxic polarization, hyper partisanship in Washington and elsewhere not to mention the crisis engulfing American cities. So. How did America get to this point? Robert DALIC is arguably America's most distinguished living presidential historian. He's author of fourteen books including on Presidents FDR JFK, LBJ, Richard, Nixon, and Ronald Reagan. The latest book is called. How did we get? He from Theodore Roosevelt? To Donald Trump it's published by harpercollins. Robert Delic joins me from Washington DC hi Bob. Hi Tom Lovely to hear from you. Great to have you on the show now they adopt is in Washington and across other use CDs, but America as I mentioned, before has experienced similar protests in violence. What do you think distinguishes this crosses? The widespread unrest in nineteen sixty I'd. Well, Tom. One of the things that distinguish did was the fact that Lyndon Johnson of course was. President then, and was presiding over the Vietnam War, which was at the center of what? Disturbed so many people in the United States and triggered so many of these. Demonstrations but Johnson had the good sense. To? Give up running for president. He was very skillful politician. Now we have a president who will not give up who would not resign and the only way we're going to get him out of office is by feeding him in the election. Night comes up and five months from now it's very disquieting situation and the demonstrations across this country. I believe on not. Simply a response to the tragic killing of that black man in Minneapolis, but it's also a protest against Donald Trump's presidency. You Know Tom. He's never reached fifty percent approval. And the going on for years he's been office. And this is unprecedented. No President in terms since we've had polling in the Mid Nineteen Thirties. Has Gone through a whole first term without ever reaching fifty percent approval.
RV Rentals Booming as Nervous Vacationers Become COVID Campers
"Perhaps this should come as no surprise to me. Memorial Day always feels like the first day summer but it came around quietly last weekend in days gone by the holiday would mark the point when we'd start taking summer vacations and gearing up for a lot of travel. Not so much this year. With the economy just tentatively re opening so how can we get away will in our own isolated homes on wheels? Of course I'm talking about? Rv's here sales of recreational vehicles are booming dealers. Tell us so. Our rentals of our visa campers sure. Rv sales typically get a boost. This time of year is people's thoughts turned to warm days and starry nights but this summer a brand new set of customers shelling out big bucks to travel the country on four or more wheels. There people who are too nervous to rent hotel rooms or to hang out in crowded cities and do not want to sleep in tents Bloomberg is calling them covid campers. Maybe you're one now. You can't be blamed if in the past you thought. Rv's weren't cool as Bloomberg noted the height of RV sales happen back when Richard Nixon was president in nineteen seventy two but our love affair with exploration didn't end interest. Grew again a few years back. In two thousand seventeen travelers bought a half a million. Rv's and then sales drooped once more until now in March when dealerships were closed RV sales fell twenty percent Bloomberg reports but dealerships. That are now open. Can't keep up with demand camping world holdings a publicly held. Rv retailer said. The first weekend in May was the company's biggest weekend in its history. The Motley Fool reported its stock price nearly tripled since the beginning of May camping world and many local dealers are selling to cova campers like Mike Roads and his wife Carol. The couple told Bloomberg that they'd been planning summer trips to Germany and New Zealand among other places but now they don't want to stay in hotels so they put a wash on their global adventures and instead bought a thirty thousand dollar travel trailer and used a Toyota. Pick up to pull it. The skittish couple is in very good company. Only seventeen percent of Americans feel comfortable staying in hotels or resorts right now and even fewer would take a domestic flight. That's according to a late April survey by M. G. Y. Global for the. Us Travel Association. The Wall Street Journal reported. But let's say you have no. Rv experience or you have no intention of spending thousands to own a motor home. Well two big

The day of the procedure arrived quickly after an exhausting day. Previous drinking four liters of toxic soap water. I didn't know how to do that. That seems weird. Maybe that was just his. I normally love sedation as well. But this day I drove to the hospital not realizing I owed requi- one and the nurse asking me who was collecting me after I.

My tea and toast was dressed in waiting to navigate past the nurses station but I got caught my code.

Who thought you might find it? Relevant to today. Edmund Thomas. It's good to see you. Great to be back. Diane I must tell you avenue and Hamas he gives me very little pleasure to talk about Richard Nixon. I lived through all of that through the burglar it the Watergate through Nixon denial through his farewells to his staff. He's not likeable. And then why did you decide you write a book about Richard Nixon. I think he's the most interesting political figure of the twentieth century. Really You Know He. He's he's the guy who could barely make a conversation and yet he won the presidency twice once why the greatest landslide history on five national tickets only. FDR Did that. How did this introverted? Shy Man become the most successful political figure of his time to me was an endlessly fascinating question. An getting inside the mind. Had anyone pretty tough to do. How did you begin to set about doing that? It is tough and you have to be humble about Nixon. Left incredible trail four thousand hours of tapes thousand page memoir his chief of Staff. Hr Haldeman not only kepting. These incredible diaries but sat there in his office. Writing Down Nixon's every utterance. So you can sit there. And the Nixon Library and read sort of real time stream of consciousness There are in his hometown. Whittier literally hundreds of oral histories of from his childhood. So you can get a pretty good glimpse of that there are any number of memoirs diaries presidents leave an incredible paper trail. And so you know you can you. You truly get inside. Somebody's mind no and I don't pretend to do that. But you can get pretty close with Nixon you can. And you're exactly this sort person and Nixon hate it. I am I worked for The Washington Post Company for twenty four years. I'm a member of our guest. What you call the East Coast Media Establishment Establishment I even went to Harvard. Nixon hated are. He was always saying those Harvard. No more Harvard. None of those Harvard guys get rid of them and he hired without the thing I love about Nixon. He's up massive contradiction his two top aides were RV professors Daniel Patrick Moynihan and Henry Kissinger et. An what did you you want to do with his book. What did you want to show people about Richard Nixon or tell them about him? That hasn't already already been as I said. I come from the Washington Post Company and over there we've shared the cartoon of Nixon as a kind of dark evil man and there was a dark side to Nixon. There was obviously anybody can see that but there was another side to him and late at night he would take yellow the yellow pad which is aids called his best friend and golfing write notes to himself and he would write notes about the Richard Nixon he wanted to be and he would use the word joy joy. This is not a word you normally associate with Richard Nixon and serenity and confidence and decency now Senate could say okay. He's just that's what he wants to be seen. He just wants to use side in Time magazine to write a column about this in. There's something to that but it's also the way he wanted to see himself he did. It often often enough that I'm sure of this. And he did it often with his own family that I'm sure of it. Nixon wanted to be a robust decent. Good Person He. He did not sustain that at the end he was vindictive he destroyed himself but the battle between the Nixon who wanted to be a decent person and the Nixon who was not is epoch. The Great American novel and you say that goes back to his early child was sure he we had a a father was a bully. And a mother was passive aggressive. He described sweet and say lease saintly and I guess she was but leading leading oral histories from his cousins too. She could give you the silent treatment today. We were talking about conditional love that you had to perform for her to get loving and and Henry Kissinger once said. I wonder what Nixon would have been like. If he'd been really loved as a child I can do as exaggerating. Perfect there. But there's something to do that. Nixon felt he had to perform Nixon significantly lost older brother tuberculosis and a younger brother to disease and Nickson mother said it was as if Nixon had to be all three boys himself and to others to to replace the boys they had lost. Little Kid can't do that yet. It's too much to ask. NATO is a very song little boy at least details he would walk around. He'd like to have pressed white shirts. Various festivus he walked around and barefoot carrying his shoes in the bag He hated to be hugged. He was a solemn lonely. Little boy who wanted to be alone. He's a sad little boy. Where was his father? Most the time His father was a running a gas station as father. Poor at first he failed. Lemon Grove Bove in Yorba. Linda and Nixon was eating Fried Mush. Dinner I mean he was really poor at the beginning but then dad actually made some dough running the station but the Nixon was a hard working boy. He got up at four thirty in the morning to go to the markets in La to buy vegetables before he went to school when his older brother was sick. With the Burke Yellow closys mom left and took the boy into the desert to Arizona. Because that's what they did with with TB patients back in the day so Nixon was deprived of his own own mother. He would go there in the summer. Always working always working. Nixon had a very tough childhood. He was proud he would say we didn't even know we were so poor. We didn't now. We were poor and actually compared to some other people to time. He wasn't so poor when he arrived here. In Washington he was a total outsider. The Washington said George said the Washington Post. How they deal with that will now? Well I mean he was People forget this but back in the late forties there was a social set in Washington people. The top of the CIA a top State Department Joe also the columns my old employer heuer Katharine Graham of the Washington. Post and her late husband Phil. They were the the cool crowd. If you will like high all high school they were the cool crap and they sort of checked checked out. Nixon also invited into one of his famous dinner parties after he beat Douglas in nineteen fifty and But of course also introduced Nixon as Russell. Nixon accent got his name wrong and then April Harriman. Who is a pillar of this community and ambassador turned his plate over and said I will not break bread with that man and walked Out Can you imagine how I yeah I inner. Can you imagine how humiliating that was. Why Harriman Harriman? had been you know a A member of the liberal establishment and they thought Nixon was the devil because he'd exposed Alger Hiss to as a Russian spy. Alger Hiss was a member of the oldest advertisement and Nixon was the one who exposed Spy His actually was Soviet spy and so they just had it in for Nixon also. Nixon was stylistically wrong. He wasn't wasn't good at self deprecating humor. He wasn't good at any number he wasn't cool. He didn't carry himself easily. He's sweated a lot. Could be anxious. He could sound phony all the thanks. The Georgetown's set disdains. Nixon was we just didn't stylistically fit in and they were condescending and they were out to get him one thing I got into in this book. That hadn't quite realized was the degree to which Georgetown was out to get Richard Nixon. Mrs Mrs Graham held my Oh boss means she she hated Nixon and and the Washington Post now. He wanted to get the post to He. He tried to take away their broadcasting licenses. Nixon made the mistake of lashing out at his enemies in the press that is ultimately a losing game when you're up against the Washington Post nineteen seventy. You're not going to win that game even if you're president of the United States so who left the dinner party April Harriman or Richard Naval Harmon. Walked out on him. Ever harmon walked down to poor Nixon. Just just sitting there. This kind of thing happened again and again Nixon's best friend. Alice Longworth Roosevelt. Alice Roosevelt Longworth. He thought but I have a scene in there at a dinner party. She's with the British ambassador and all these People Georgetown and she says Oh that common little man even worse for Port Nixon Henry Kissinger singer Nixon's Closest Day who was pretty appreciative of Nixon when he was with Nixon and was really valued huddle duplicity. He would go to these dinner. Parties to Paulie Fritzy as and Joel Sips and he would make jokes about the president about his drinking and and you know so charming. And he's so funny and the Georgetown crowd loved him and embraced him and were only too happy to have the president's national security adviser gently mocking the president in their midst and Nixon knew about it. Of course got back and of course they can't act. Nixon would say as Henry went out the door. There goes does Henry off to talk to his friends and Georgetown Goes Henry off to talk to The Washington Post. Nixon tried to accept it. He said well Kissinger needs this. Needs I ego. Nixon tried to be philosophical about it but of course it was wounded and yet he so needs it Kissinger he did. I mean Kissinger was a brilliant foreign policy adviser Nixon and extremely ambitious foreign policy agenda. It took a Kissinger to execute But having said that it's important to know that the ideas were Nixon's ideas. They weren't Kissinger's. The idea of going to China opening up China. That was not Henry Kissinger's idea and fact when h your Haldeman told Kissinger that the Nixon was thinking of going to China Kissinger responded fat chance now Kissinger brilliantly executed executed Nixon strategy but the idea was Nixon's his paranoia was really profound. I don't know if it was clinical title. But certainly when he got late at night when he couldn't sleep and he started thinking about his enemies. It was pretty bad. You hear it. Reading those Haldeman notes at the Nixon Library are these. These rapid notations their circular. They keep coming back to the press to the wash to in San Enemy. Dan How they have to create a new establishment. We're GONNA win and create a new establishment with people from the West and from the South Not Harvard Not Georgetown. Oh Not New York.

Had the good sense to be quiet around Nixon. He understood that that what Nixon wanted was silence. The Secret Service sitting down below on on the houseboat would would listen and hear nothing. Nixon and BB would be up on the deck. And there'd be no sound for hours they would tell the occasional dirty joke Nixon liked. Nixon had a real weakness for stupid macho talk. One of listening. The tapes is Biz is awful. It is awful Nixon in this is partly generational that generation trying to sound tough by swearing and having having said that I worked for the Washington Post I work with Ben Bradlee. Swearing was not unique to why the White House my share of dumb swearing wearing one of those working at Newsweek But but it's very unattractive and it's kind of this macho in its world was right and they're always wrong. One thing that got to me listening the tapes as they never entertain the possibility that the opposition is right that they have a point and this arrogance really got them in undeterred. Got Them into trouble. It's not the swearing bothers me. It's the arrogance is so when the break in occurred at the Watergate President Nixon in November of seventy three makes a speech to the whole country broadcast press conference in which he denies any involvement..

"You were hiring a Richard Nixon. What are the traits that you're looking for? It was actually quite hard to know and this has been a process of discovery from for Halcion. I kind of what Aw what is the process of both visually transforming an actor into Richard Nixon and sonically as well so the kind of cadence the delivery needed to be similar than what we did was sat in a studio for three days and we had collected about gosh about eight hours. I think of material Israel of Richard Nixon giving speeches from the White House and then just split them into clips of one two three seconds long we were then given a kind of fairly simple web interface where we would play this to our actor. They would repeat them on a microphone. which would go into this Into this web system and then if we were happy we thought it sounded similar. We will do the next one and we did this over and over and over again day after day recording hundreds I think probably thousands of clips by the end of the three days You then have to pardon data sets you've got this list of clips of of Nixon reading the speech. And then you've got Louis Wheeler who was actor in the end Doing his best is not impersonate but to do. Similar takes of these tiny tiny little clips noted for example that are Republican. Senator I noted for example Republican senator noted for example that the Republican Sagger I have noted for example the Republican Publican senator. I've noted for example that a Republican I have noted for example that Republican senator right. Yeah I've noted for example with a Republican senator. I think burn my throat.

But by doing it through a creative means means so. We are making this project around the contingency speech that was written for Richard Nixon. If the astronauts of the Apollo Eleven mission had been left on the moon and not being able to return which there was a possibility and that would happen. His speechwriter. Bill Safire wrote Richard Nixon speech in case that would happen. Is this very beautiful. Elegy that he would have delivered if that it happened.

It's going to be an installations so we're going to create living room set in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine the night of the moon landing and you'll be invited to sit down and washed the television in fact some of it will be Walter Cronkite. Apollo eleven footage and some real footage of Richard Nixon and part of breath. This project will be a deep fake of Richard Nixon.

"Use that Promo Code Charlie. You won't regret it. So basically every media pundits and Democrat out there is talking about how president trump is really Richard Nixon Richard Nixon and trump have all this in common and so look. Let's walk through the facts of this because they are nothing alike well again. I shouldn't say they're nothing like I guess they were. Both Republican presidents hated by the media. But I repeat myself self. Every Republican president is hated by the media. Many of you have probably seen the movie. All the president's men was a nineteen seventy-six American political thriller about the Watergate Scandal. And so the Richard the Nixon presidency came unraveling for lots of reasons a lot of things that president trump has not done and will never do and never engage in so after San. Let's just go through the facts of this this. I'm going to add some color to it and I hope this will give you the important intellectual and historical context that you could push back against your leftist friends. Professors teachers relatives as you come to Thanksgiving making the inaccurate comparison that President Donald Trump is somehow even closely aligned with President Richard Nixon. Now I will say this there are people. Listen to podcasts. That are really big on Nixon apoligism. We will not do that on the show up. There are people at the Nixon Library. Nice enough people that will basically say Richard Nixon did nothing wrong set up by the people within him and he fell on the sword for the Republican Party. I think there might be some very interesting conversation around that. We're not going to get into that. I'm just going to do the facts and I will defend Nixon on some do things but he did do a lot wrong as well okay. So nineteen seventy-three when the Senate Special Committee chaired by a Democrat. which was Sam Ervin North Carolina Democrat? He was overseeing hearings on Watergate. So let's just start on. What Watergate was? Let's give you some context so there was a break in at the Democrat National Committee headquarters and this break in there. There were some people that did it. Young people that were allegedly paid to do this break in and it prompted an entire nation into it and the White House was doing everything it possibly could to distance themselves from this break in and as In articulated in the book and the movie that a lot of you have seen all the president's men which of course had Woodward Edward and Bernstein Profiled in it they went relentlessly looking for facts and looking through sources and of course the famous source was government individual within the governing himself. who went by an anonymous named deep throat on its right deep throat were they met Privately in a parking garage was dramatized and so essentially the more they looked into the Watergate scandal. And this break in the more. They realized that the White House was actually really close to this. And so here's what ended up happening is at Howard powered Baker. I remember that name. Howard Baker from Tennessee ranking member of the committee he deposed mid level White House aide Alexander Butterfield and ask them if there are any tapes of President Nixon's since discussions? He tried to not confirm it. But eventually butterfield revealed that Nixon did in fact had a voice activated system that tape everyone of his discussions as a here. Is what the most bizarre thing thing about this whole thing was. Here's what Nixon did wrong Nixon for his own posterity and for maybe writing his own book and the accuracy of his presidency. He kept tapes in the White House and in the Oval Office at recorded all of his conversations. And there's a great. There's another great movie that I highly recommend all check out called Frost Nixon which was an interview view series. That David Frost did. I Think First Name Was David Frost. We'll get that fact. Check to your on the church. That's what comes to mind. David Frost. He got the exclusive rights to interview. Richard Nixon post-presidency agency after he resigned and sat down with Richard Nixon. And one of the first questions asked Richard Nixon which is just an obvious question that he was never answered is. Why didn't you burn tapes? Which is why would you destroy the tapes that could have been incriminating against you in any way? The committee unanimously subpoenaed the tapes. This went up to the Supreme Court which eventually ordered Nixon to hand them over. In the summer of nineteen seventy four the tapes proved that Nixon directed the FBI and CIA to cover up the break in at the Watergate Hotel which was the debt which was right near the Democrat National Committee Headquarters Ten Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee who had previously voted against impeaching. The President Committee all announced they would now support peach mint even even very goldwater went to the White House and now very famous meeting which is now famous to tell President Nixon and he'd lost support of Senate Republicans the following day Nixon announced his resignation nation is approval rating in the polls at this point. Were just over twenty percent which meant that half the country. Republicans probably more want an exit gone by the way. Nixon won the nineteen eighteen seventy two election in an absolute landslide. He was a little biography on Richard Nixon. That people don't actually remember Richard. Nixon serve as eight years but two terms terms as vice president under Dwight D Eisenhower. They're two different types of Republicans but they made it work and then Richard. Nixon ran for the presidency in the now famous. Nineteen sixty election against John Fitzgerald. Kennedy were Kennedy won by some would say stealing the election in Chicago in the middle of the night. well-documented voter fraud that Richard Nixon then conceded that election Richard Nixon waited his turn and and then ran again in. Nineteen sixty eight won pretty decisively in one even more decisively nineteen seventy-two with one of the most decisive landslide electoral victories in the middle. Where where the the left? I actually think we might be heading toward nineteen seventy two election where the Democrats nominate ridiculously radical candidate. So contrast nineteen seventy four Nixon and twenty thousand so Nixon lost half of Republican Party support in one thousand nine hundred four right now. Donald Trump's approval rating in the Republican Party is as unified as ever has been one of the most popular Republican presidents within the Republican Party in history at ninety five percent approval rating. Here are some huge differences. One Nixon's tapes affirmed. He broke the law. Trump's transcripts of firm he didn't to Nixon actually spied on the opposing party. Trump was spied on by the opposing party. And and trump has an obligation to uncover corruption and foreign metal huge difference number three. Nixon resigned due to overwhelming bipartisan support. WE'RE DONALD TRUMP. The only bipartisan partisan's support in the house was against beginning the impeachment inquiry four. Nixon had no Senate Republican support. Donald Trump has basic full Senate Republicans support and unanimous Animus House. Republicans support not single defection. Other words he will not be removed from office. And you might remember. Richard Nixon resigned from the presidency and Richard Nixon really mishandled has handled the later part of his presidency. By getting too cocky and too confident and emboldening really bad people with his within his White House do far too much. President trump was rights to to hold the Ukrainian president in check to try to check out crowd strike which was foreign meddling. The comparison is baseless. The comparison is just trying to pick out a formerly. Almost impeached resigned president with someone who they walk to be impeached. The evidence and the historical context in no way supports this at all in fact Donald Trump and his presidency is much closer to not Richard Nixon and not Bill Clinton but I think his presidency and one that is about. The revitalization of America is much closer to Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was hated by the Democrats. Ronald Reagan was hated by the media. Ronald Reagan was called the errant cowboy. Albouy who might be having health problems you Ronald. Reagan went through so much negativity and he was shocked he was shot and almost killed in the streets. Something something you think would bring the country together and actually have people respect him and not challenges mental capacity. No Reagan was shot in the streets and still he'd succeeded seated in his presidency by crumbling. Soviet Union creating one of the best economies in American history in shrinking the federal bureaucracy. And guess what Donald Trump just like Ronald Reagan ran on those famous words to make America. Great again all right. I want to talk to you about an amazing partner. We have and as you know we pick our partners very carefully at the Charlie Kirk show. I had a really bad back injury back in January. And I'm still trying to recoup from it and those that know me know that I almost always walk around with tennis shoes and not dress shoes just just because of my back injury dress. Shoes are so hard to wear around but now I have these amazing comfortable shoes that are for People Wanna get stuff done okay and again. I'm really picky with my shoes. I'm picky would I wear around because I'm always moving. I'm traveling three hundred fifty days a year but this company called Wolf and shepherd they approached us. We checked out their product. It's terrific. It was founded by former track athletes and indeed designer who quickly realized none of the amazing innovations being applied to Atlantic shoes. We're making their way to dress shoes. And so basically these dress shoes are good enough for me. Let's put it that way. Even though I wear sneakers all the time these dress shoes make the cut by combining vining soft Italian leather and innovative support and cushioning as well as a bunch of other upgrades. They've created dress shoes that you can literally wear all day discomfort free Bind You I. I went and I bought some of the best dress shoes out there in London and I hated them up..
