'Better America': Biden's Campaign Launches New National Ad
"In one thousand, nine, sixty, four Lyndon Johnson ran a now iconic campaign ad against Barry Goldwater where a little girl counts daisy pedals until her counting becomes the countdown to nuclear explosion idea being present goldwater has become elected and started a nuclear war because he's a madman. said. It. there. Is, are, the stakes. You'll make a world in which all of God's children can live. Aren't to go into the dark room, we must either love each other. Or we must die. Vote for President Johnson on November third, the stakes are too high for you to stay home. The stakes are that you're adorable daughter gets nuked. Now. Even though we're not living through a nuclear winter, we are living through a version of disaster. I mean a a national disaster resulting in thousands and thousands of deaths day after day after day and a new Joe Biden goes against the grain in many ways the opposite of the grand life and death scale the daisy at. The new the biden relates what a bummer. This current disastrous doesn't focus deaths, evictions, closed schools. It says, this virus is ruining the little things like seeing your grandkids. have been gifted with two beautiful grandchildren. We try to see them as often as possible and it's been six months. And it's way too long. And while I don't blame Donald Trump for the virus, I blame him for his lack of action and because of that, we're sitting here zooming or facetime ing with our grandchildren instead of hugging and kissing them. And that's hard. Joe Biden knows every moment is precious I trust you Biden to get this virus under control? I'm Joe Biden and I approve this message. Seems like a really real smart relatable ad for a portion of the population that Joe Biden is trying to focus on. This is for all the people who were sold on idea that there was some normal around the Ben. During the trump years because there is no normal during trump that was false join me. Now for more on the different approaches, the two campaigns are taking is Adrian Shropshire. She's a veteran democratic strategist and executive director of black pack had a lot of experience in politics community organizing and ads as well and I just I was so struck by this ad agent because it's so understood in. So many ways given how terrible things are and given the kind of micro targeted median voter. He's trying to reach you know elderly couple or senior citizen couple in Florida. Yeah I mean the reality is that. Voters understand where we are. They understand the crisis that we're in. They do not. WanNa see campaign after campaign ad reminding them of our national. Right. I've said he focused move after folks. And what? The message that voters say that they want to hear is one of national unity. They WanNa hear message about a path forward how this mess is going to get fixed and I think the brilliant thing about that ad is that. while. It appears to be targeted at one segment of the electorate. The reality is that that is all of us, right? That is my entire family every Sunday night sitting zoom call, right so it is it is. There is a moment where the multipronged crisis that are facing the country are literally touching every single one of us and what's brilliant about the ad is that. You know it's it leads toward that unifying message right? It is it in every message quite frankly every ad I would hope to see that comes out of the campaign on is a way to unify to tell a message to tell a story that connects people about the moment that we're in. It's really if you think about it in this in this way having a national unity being a campaign strategy all by itself.
Fresh update on "president johnson" discussed on American History Tellers
"But when Congress reconvened, it refused to support the removal and grant resigned his position. For a few weeks, it seemed as if the issue and blow over. But Johnson wasn't done yet. Imagine it's February twenty, first eighteen, sixty eight you're an aide to embattled secretary of war Edwin Stanton. It's early afternoon in late winter, and you're with him and several others in his office and the war department building in Washington. It's cold out today with Snow flurries falling against the window shivering toss another log onto the fire standing comes over to stand next to you and warm his hands I. Forgot how cold it gets here in wintertime. This is the first cold snap we've had since you've returned. Sir, you should have been here. December. It was awful. You immediately realize you've made a gaffe. Stanton wasn't here in December because President Johnson had fired him. Stanton takes the competent stride smiling Oh, I wish I could have been. I was just saying to Senator Sumner that. Stanton breaks off in mid sentence as he notices something outside the window an older man in a general's uniform has just walked up to the building from Pennsylvania Avenue coming from the direction of the White House that was General Thomas. Let the devil is he doing here Lorenzo, Thomas. Is. The Adjunct General of the army is chief administrator. Sure, he's here to see user surely nothing serious if it's Thomas, it's serious. He's been meeting with the president often these fascinating. You. Hurry to open the office door. General Thomas Pushes his way in ignoring your feeble greeting Secretary Stanton I'm here to inform you of President Johnson's decision to dismiss you from the Cabinet and the war department is appointed me to be your interim replacement I'm to begin immediately and take possession of this office. Stanton just stands there for a moment his mouth just slightly parted. Then he finds his voice. Again I suppose he's informed the Senate a messenger is on his way as we speak. They'll never stand for this. You know they've already confirmed me in my position that's none of my concern. The president has instructed me to replace you and I intend to do it with all due respect course. Well, I'll be damned if you do this is an outrage in clear defiance of federal law. I will not leave the premises of this office Mr How please bring a constable as quickly as you can. Your fellow aid runs out of the building returns a few minutes. Later with two men gentlemen, you arrest this man general. Thomas for violating federal law hold him until one of the Provost Marshal's men can take him to be confined pending charges. Thomas doesn't say a word, the two constables take him out of the secretary's office. You're almost seems to have expected it Sandton turns and looks to you. All right. Well, go to Senator Way to office and tell him what has happened. Then, sent a messenger to my wife and tell her I mean not be home for a few days. I'm.
Ely Parker The Commissioner of Indian Affairs
"Hello and welcome to era KOI history and legends. I'm Andrew. And I am Caleb, and welcome back to our third installment on Ellie Parker. In May of eighteen, sixty, five, ely parker returned to Washington. DC, and he and grant met with the president again. President Johnson this time Parker was still very angry about the death of Lincoln and is said to have said at a military parade. He white men are Christians, and you may forgive murder. The I'm of a race never forgives the murder of a friend which I find this quote kind of interesting because he was a Christian. He his father was a preacher, and he was a member of a of an Anglican church later in his life. So that I think it's the point is getting across that he really harbored some bitterness towards the the confederates. If you remember from our. Our last episode couple of weeks before this when Abraham Lincoln is talking to him on how he wants to help his people think Parker was really excited to have a president that actually cared about the Indians, and I think he believed honesty when he said that this must have been a you know on top of him considering Abraham Lincoln a friend, but also all of a sudden. His plans for the future for his people have just been crushed with the death of Abraham Lincoln, and we don't know what would have been head Lincoln been able to finish his second term. Lincoln definitely had some very. Questionable tactics dealing with a Western tribes during the civil war. He or some people to do some some bad stuff that being said I think that Lincoln really did have an appreciation for the the Iroquois nations, and really did want to to help them in the following months Parker remained at grant side, he helped shield him from the the masses for a word. We would use today. The Paparazzi the general was the hero of the war. He's the one that got lead to surrender. Everywhere. He went. People mobbed him. They literally had to beat people away when grant was trying to get some sleep on a train. People were breaking windows. Just try to get in and shake his hand. They said the grants hand was. Crippled because so many people wanted to shake in talk to them as they toured the North Grant, and his family came to Niagara Falls to rest and recuperate and Parker said I'll take your kids, and which is always great when somebody offers to do that, he just takes the kids and take some to the tunnel under reservation for some days to stay at his sister's house. In the fall of that year he was appointed to a commission to serve on a board to help with negotiating with a dozen or so native American nations that adjoined the confederates. We even have a chance to talk about this, but there were all these indigenous nations in the south. Many of them head slaves as well, and they were really sympathetic to the southern 'cause they were intertwined. and politically so here's a little history tidbit fact for Caleb. Do you know who the last general to surrender in the confederacy was? No idea neither did I, but I put it in the notes so I would remember. He was a Cherokee brigadier general named stand. Wadey must be the southward a little more lenient with their commissions. Yeah really, but he he commanded hundreds of troops and lead people around on a wild goose chase, refusing to surrender, even after the confederacy had surrendered, but like this is June twenty third. This is a full two or three months after a everything has wound down, it also kind of sets the stage for you know because we all know about like the the Indian wars in. In the eighteen eighties and stuff like that in the old western kind of see how a Lotta that this conflict never really ended this Cherokee general with America like eventually make some sort of peace, but you can tell it. It's GONNA be a shallow peace, and that will be trouble for the next several decades in eighteen, sixty, six one of grant's top officers colonel, bowers. was killed tragically by train, and why it's so tragic is he was a close friend of Parker in grand. You know he's one of the general. Staff and they were all on a train and grant got on the train and realized he left something back at the hotel. Something completely, not important handkerchief a book, a letter from his mom something like that. and. He just said Oh darn. I accidentally left that back there. Oh well. And bowers without saying anything to grant slipped away, and he was gonNA. Run back and grab it. Is. He was trying to be a good a good friend and a good underlying to the general in doing so he ended up. If you can picture, all these train tracks with all the trains going every which way he got trapped in between trains going different directions than he was killed crushed. So grant talks to this man a couple of minutes before, and then you know, he slips away. Grant never told him to go back and get it, and then people say a man was killed on tracks. He says Oh. That's terrible, and then it comes in that. It was his friend. It had fought with him through the whole civil war, and he was dead, just like that grant was so depressed that he told Parker that he was not going to be able to attend the funeral. Lots of people say things like that, and then the funeral date comes and guess who is there. A Grant Parker and all the staff were there for Colonel Bowers and his family

health good morning to all of you happy Memorial Day weekend starts today summer is Nero upon us this will be the one hundred and fifty shift Memorial Day press gets to ask me questions here's my question for you guys today where was the first officially recognized Memorial Day celebration no answer no way let the record show there is not a single submission from the assembled press aggression Waterloo New York Seneca county eighteen sixty six President Johnson declared Waterloo New York the birthplace of the Memorial Day parade and as you are a press corps from the state of New York I would hope that you said you remember this going forward and there's the sign just in case you forget Waterloo New York birthplace of Memorial Day today's the day eighty three of the covert nineteen crisis some of my young guns saying US eighty three days we haven't had a day off its Memorial Day weekend life is about stamina stamina it's Memorial Day weekend major imagine if you were in a real war overseas war World War one World War two rien war Vietnam War day eighty three it's nothing short of duty news is good today hospitalizations are down net change in hospitalizations is down the number of new cases per day is down this is low level now that is lower than when we first began so that's good number of deaths painfully hi at any number right and you see that this number has been stubborn on its way down but it's one hundred and nine yesterday they're all in our thoughts and prayers again you see how quick that spike one up and you see how slow it is to come down so we want to make sure we don't go back there ever ever again we're talking about re opening question is not whether or not to re open the question is how you reopen smart how fast and safe can you reopen re open as fast as you can as long as it is safe and your safe if you're acting smart what a smart mean phasing it in by metrics just study what's happening continue to test so you can you have an idea of the growth of the virus trace those cases isolate those positives watch your hospital capacity and monitor what's going on so all your actions are based on data we post all the data anyone can in the state can go online and see where they are by their region Long Island the mid Hudson region if the number of deaths continues to decline the way it has and they get their tracing online every region has a certain number of tracers that they need to re open because we want to make sure when they re open they have the testing and tracing operation working but if the number of deaths continues to decline they get their tracing up and online both Regis could reopen this week in anticipation of that we're going to allow construction staging phase one construction begins before you can begin construction you have to have stage the construction the materials have to be on site at cetera safety precautions have to be on site so we're going to allow that construction staging now for the Long Island in the mid Hudson we're hopeful that the number of deaths continues to decline and then they would be re opening this week testing is big component of all of this New York state tests more than any other state per capita we test more than any other country per capita so we are far ahead in terms of getting this operation online and this is the first case nobody's ever done this before putting together this tracing and testing capacity but we've signed up another fifty two independent pharmacies that brings the total number of sites in the state of New York to seven hundred and fifty and our message is very simple get a test we have a state run sites where we have more capacity than when now performing tests we have some drive ins where we can do fifteen thousand tests were only doing five thousand per day get a test if you have any symptoms of covert which are basically the same symptoms as the flow if you have any symptoms get a test if you were exposed to a person who you find that was positive get a test get a test and you can go to this website you know tell you exactly the side closest to you in terms of tracing all the reasons that I've come on line had to have the right number of tracers so we're talking about mid Hudson in Long Island has to get their tracing numbers up but every region has the tracing functioning Mike Bloomberg former mayor of New York City volunteered to have his Bloomberg philanthropies put together any tracing program because there is no such thing as a tracing program how do you train tracers how do you recruit tracers how do you what software do the tracers use they've been doing that with Johns Hopkins they've been fantastic we have that in place now and we're going to share that with other states online and we're going to do that with the national governors association because New York is I had and we do have more advanced curriculum and training and protocols so we're going to work with the NGA and make that available to any state that wants to use it small business is a priority federal government attached to small business assistance program that is run out of money and small businesses are taking a real beating in this situation they are ninety percent of new York's business and they're facing the toughest challenges the economic projections vis a vis small business are actually frightening more than one hundred thousand have shut permanently since the pandemic hit many small businesses just don't have the staying power to continue to pay all the fixed cost at least at cetera when they have no income whatsoever minority owned businesses face a far greater risk and have received less in federal relief so New York state is starting its own small business relief program working with private banks we have over one hundred million dollars available to make loans to small businesses we're going to focus on M. W. B. ease that did not receive federal assistance and focus on really small business you know the federal definition of small business has what many would consider large businesses but we're going to focus on troops small businesses twenty or fewer fewer employees less than three million dollars in gross revenues people who are interested in participating in this program can go to the website that is on the screen this Memorial Day weekend we expect people to be getting out going to parks beaches it cetera we understand that but we have to remain vigilant at the same time I know the weather is warmer I know people been cooped up I know this tremendous energy to get out you have to remain village vigilant you read in the papers that they're talking now about a possible second wave are hot spots for places that have opened too fast or opened without testing and tracing or opened without doing monitoring I would be the worst situation is if we went through everything we went through you start to re open you're not doing the monitoring in the vigilance and it actually winds up with another hot spot or cluster or worse frankly and remember we are still learning about the scope of nineteen virus and one of the things I find most infuriating is the facts continue to change with this virus nobody's fault but since we didn't know about the virus we had certain assumptions that quote unquote experts may and those facts change from day one from day one it started that this virus was coming from China so everybody's looking to the west coast from the west and it turns out the virus came from the east came from Europe and walked right through our airports and nobody was screening and know what no one was doing anything I'm not it was not in March was coming here January February and March virus was here much before it much sooner than anybody knows fact was if you will have the virus and you have the antibodies in your immune so we can put together a work force they can go back to work people who have the virus and now have the antibodies now they're not so sure if you're immune if you have the antibodies started children were not going to be affected by the coronavirus now we're not so sure the children are not affected and we're watching carefully this inflammatory syndrome that is starting to hit children for covert positive or have the antibodies for positive most recently C. D. C. says infected surfaces are not a major source of transmission when we started it was about infected surfaces and you could get it from infected surfaces and that was a major problem we have a very aggressive disinfecting campaign going on across the state public transit it's at right now the CDC says yeah that's not a major source it's airborne it's droplets that's a major source if the major source if they're right and the major transmission source is airborne it takes you back to where a mass where a mass and you know this reminds me in some ways of the education we campaign we went through after we learned about the HIV virus and transmission of the HIV I remember how many times and how long we have to talk to people about wearing a prophylactic and how he could make the difference between life and death the mask can make the difference between life and death I know it's a small thing it's de minimus it doesn't look like much but if it's now primarily airborne you know the mask works how do you know the mask works first responders have a lower infection rate than the general population nurses doctors in emergency rooms have a lower infection rate than the general population how can that possibly be because they wear the mask and they do the hand sanitizer you feel out of control you can't protect yourself you can protect your family yes you can that's what the mass does you want to be in control of yourself you want to greatly increase your odds where the mass by the way not just asking you the mask is

Andrea DeLong-Amaya, Women Working in the World of Plants
"We continue cultivating places. Women's history month interviews. Were joined this week by Andrea Delong Amaya director of horticulture for the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at the University of Texas. At Austin it is also the botanic garden for the State of Texas Andrea has been on staff for over twenty years and has more than thirty years of experience in horticulture. She Guides fifteen staff members in the design and management of nine acres of Native Plant Gardens. Two hundred and seventy five acres of natural areas and in native plant nursery. She teaches classes in native plant horticulture and writes and presents on her passion for the field widely. She spoke with US late. Last autumn to share more about the history and work of the centre including it. Being the legacy of another extraordinary woman ladybird Johnson Andrea shares. Her own enthusiasm for this field of work. Welcome Andrea Hi. How you doing? I'm great how are you wonderful? I'd love for you to start by describing describe the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center as visually as you can for listeners. Who may not have been there. And then we'll talk a little bit about your specific work there Andrea Sherr so we are in a South Austin and in the middle of Texas. We're in a part of the state that we refer to as Texas El country or the Edwards Plateau which is a beautiful beautiful part of the state. Of course Texans will say every part of the state is beautiful but I WANNA say text. The central Texas area is particularly beautiful especially in the spring were really renowned for having excellent wildflower displays including the Texas blue on it which occurs all over the state but the central Texas areas particularly flora for us in the spring. And so we are like I said in Austin and the site that were on is a public garden where about two hundred and eighty five acres. I think we actually added a little bit more In the last year or so and it's a public garden where we feature plants that are native to the state of Texas. That's the site now. The organization is bigger than that But the gardens here. We're demonstrating hell different. Native plants can be used in different kinds of landscapes different kinds of styles. We have collections of plants. From different parts of the State we are the Botanic Garden Texas. So we're trying to increase our collections to represent other parts of the state as well as the central Texas area so we have about nine acres of cultivated gardens and then we have a sixteen Acre Texas Arboretum of trees So those are the horticultural areas in then. We have natural areas in The other parts of the the property And that the natural areas also include some research areas. We have some Areas where we're doing Land Management prescribed fire treatments and different kinds of land-management to see how that influences the vegetation. Yeah we can talk more about that. If you're if you like definitely definitely I will i. I would love to get into some of the specifics of each of those areas you just described but before we get there. Describe your your your job there what it entails and may be the trajectory of your twenty years there. Andrea. Yeah well. I started as a gardener appropriately and really enjoy working outside. I mean I've always been interested in being outdoors and that goes way back to my childhood is probably most people who have an affinity for the natural world That usually starts childhood so I grew up doing things outdoors with my parents particularly with my dad. We'd go camping or canoeing. And I remember having a field guide of of wildflowers weeds that surrounded our area where we lived and that was great. Fun everything from astronomy to birds and lizards and insects. Just everything is so interesting And I just find that the more I learn about things the more I'm fascinated and in awe of the natural world so that's just started early but it's just been a long a lifelong interest in learning more and observing more. I mean I laugh. We have a big picture window at our dining room table. And that's our TV. We don't have an actual electronics of the Inter House. It's overlooking a garden and pond and we just sit there and watch the animal antics and what's blooming and it's great fun and it's a nice way to slow down in our fast paced world That's a that's a big part of what I think. Nature does for me and for a lot of people So you started as a gardener. What year was that Andrea and then tell us about the progression of your rules at the Center Which clearly you progressed in because of your deepening curiosity and ever expanding knowledge base. Yes so I started in December of nine hundred ninety eight and Worked as a gardener I've guarded in most of the areas that we have in Under cultivation over the years and at some point we had Position of gardens manager was available so I moved into that and then I don't know maybe fifteen years ago I transitioned into the direct report culture and Unfortunately that means a little bit less guarding than I used to do. But it also gets me in a higher level of designing decision making which is very exciting and allows me to have more influence over some of the bigger picture things that are happening And then overseeing the natural areas arboretum and the nurseries also been pretty pretty fun and adds different interest to what what I'm looking at. Yeah so talk about Before we get into the specifics of some of the programmatic areas and display areas there and then the research give listeners. A history of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center when it started what it's original mission in scope was of course the wonderful woman for whom it is named and by whom it was founded in its original iteration and So that that people have an understanding of just how much bigger is then. A Garden appreciating wildflowers. Because that is a fabulous mission but it's it is much bigger than that so we're very blessed to have had the visionary Labor Johnson as founder. She founded the wildflower center. Initially as the wildflower research center. The National Welfare Research Center and that was an endeavor that she took on with her friend and actress. Helen Hayes which a lot of people don't remember that part of of the history but it's Kinda Funny Mrs Johnson didn't feel like she had enough name. Recognition Systems of Helen Hayes. And so her mission right from the beginning was to really try to understand an unlocked the secrets of wildfires in native plants and understand how they grow and that was the original research. The the wildflower center did at that time and so that was a nineteen eighty two so the organization started back. Then we moved to our current site as a public garden Before it was more just a research site with some portables but it didn't really have botanical garden kind of exhibits. Someone moved to Our current site in one thousand nine hundred ninety five that was really a big focus of making the space Amenable to guests and having exhibits that people can interact with and having educational programming and really elaborating on that when she first started it. Why we'll just remind listeners? She was of course the first lady of the United States and she Had A as firstly. She had some remarkable initiatives to beautify. I think was the word that was used then. roads and highways across the country and she was taken by the wildflower diversity there in her home state for good reason. Because it's a pretty remarkable native flora. Will you talk a little bit about that? And and why people thought this was not just a pretty project but was worthy of deep research. Even at that time so yeah. Mrs Johnson grew up in a rural setting and without siblings so she was a long time so her best friend is. A child was outside Just the outdoors and I think that was what what instilled upon in her the scrape passion for the for the natural world and then as she became first lady She really had a great influence on President Johnson in terms of Passing legislation one of the things he's known for is the beautification. Act The highway beautification. Act and getting billboards off of the roadsides and cleaning up roadsides and planting wildflowers and the way I understand it you know we talk about it is being beautification and she knew at the time. She was very savvy that at the time. She knew that that was a word that would engage people. The public secretly I. I've heard that she felt like that was actually kind of a word and that it is she. I think she understood. It was deeper than just beautification was away to connect people with the idea that she

obstruction of justice they did not recommend any action I thought that would be the end of actually introduce legislation to say that Robert Muller cannot be removed accept the call because the president felt like the motor investigation was of which I did not the present was frustrated because he said he did nothing wrong I can understand that but it was important for me to make sure that the country would have somebody to look at these allegations Ross are very serious and I supported Mahler's ability to look any work for a long time and I thought it would be over Mr Shipp said yesterday what they did in the house was just like what we did with Clint that is absolutely untrue from the time they authorized impeachment it took forty eight days not two years with Mahler not five years like Clint the forty eight days the fact finding process was done in the Intel committee now the Judiciary Committee the present was denied the right to cancel the Intel committee and could not request with they spent one day in the Judiciary Committee go back and look at the tapes of how long can start testified before the Senate excuse me the house Judiciary Committee of which I was a far what we've done for the first time in American history isn't Peter president without outside counsel and all in a forty eight day period well here's what struck me the most where the house manager said reason we didn't go to court we don't want to go through the courts is that we can engage in before the election they withdrew from the Cumberland cover of the dead the national security adviser case where the dead the national security adviser what course to tell me what to do judge the house actually withdrew the subpoena because they didn't want the court process to stop the impeachment trial they would have the United States Senate create an impeachment process where the president would not be allowed to go to article three court to argue privileges that have been argued in every other impeachment trial and have been argued by president since George Washington that would destroy the institution of the presidency as we know it what would it do it would allow a handful any three hundred plus million country people all along partisan lines ten PH a president without independent judiciary the before I came here I used to try cases we have a lot of good lawyers in this body all I can say is that when the court date was set and if I showed up and asked for a bunch of subpoenas and documents to be produced on the day of trial that I had not pursued before the trial in any serious way how to get tossed out what do we do yesterday exactly what happened in the Clinton impeachment trial we're going to hear the house's gate the president's response we're going to ask questions then we'll decide among ourselves do we want to know anything yesterday was about eleven hours of them telling us how bad their case was in my view they did not pursue these witnesses because they knew the president what's the judiciary very us and it literally would stop them impeaching him before the election so the only thing I can tell the American people when it comes to replacing those present nine months plus from the election you got an up hill battle with me because I really do believe that the best person group of people to pick a president are the voters not a bunch of partisan politicians senator Lindsey Graham every day we're here doing this is a day were taken away from doing things that really matter so when they say it was like Clinton no when they say the court's really have no place in impeachment that's all going to be done by the house and the Senate without any independent judicial review god help us all center Steve Daines of Montana we had a lot of time last night thank some twelve hours on the floor of the US Senate is the first impeachment trial I've been through senator Graham is the experience that is his prior political life it reminded me of when I went to high school in Bozeman Montana if I turned in a term paper he was half complete my teacher toss it back to me they didn't get it done is incomplete probably give it up and say it's a complete try yeah that's why I felt like we saw last night was an incomplete case I have not done a complete homework you're my enemy what Nancy posted back in two thousand ten on the Obama care is that first we got a pass to find out was it it feels like what happened last night they had a rush this through the house just get over to the Senate we'll find out what's really in try to fix a fair let me remind you remind all of us in two hundred forty four years of history of this great country United States Senate has never remove a president from office never you look at the two trials for presence but we have had in the Senate over the course of our history President Johnson eighteen sixty of course president Clinton nineteen ninety nine what's unique about this impeachment trial versus the other two the other two both had crimes alleged in the impeachment articles president trump does not the other two impeachment trials had bipartisan support coming out of the house president trump impeachment coming out of the house did not first time I've ever seen there were many things that I agreed with with with a German never said last night but he did say some and I hope everybody hurts actually back to the Clinton days was it and I will paraphrase it and god help us if we ever purely partisan basis numbers work back then were wives and I hope you would see them today this is the most hardest impeachment process ever seen a history of this great country no crimes alleged in the trunk articles not bipartisan in a very important final point is if you look for the Democrats are asking United States Senate to do is to remove president trump from office and to bar him from ever holding office again was also unique about this trial versus president when this is done in an election it's really big the fundamental question as well is to the United States Senate the side the two thousand twenty election and overturn a two thousand sixteen election by removing this president from office I put the trust in the voters of this country they should have that say not the nicest
"president johnson" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio
"Vote for President Johnson on November third the stakes are too high for you to stay home for not exactly so but it was a tremendously effective political ad Goldwater did score some points off Johnson on foreign policy on Johnson's alleged timidity in the face of communist provocation most notably cold water turned to Johnson for not responding forcefully to Viet Cong and north Vietnamese brutality in South Vietnam why aren't you doing more to spend our south Vietnamese allies now in light of the fact that Johnson just chills cold water in the greatest electoral triumph in history up to that point it seems ludicrous the Johnson ever really doubted whether he was gonna win that election but there were at least two pressing issues that caused him to feel that in spite of everything you might lose the very cold water might be elected president for one there was a colossal scandal involving Johnson's chief aide Walter Jenkins in October of nineteen sixty four Jenkins was caught in the men's room of the YMCA it with another man in a sexual encounter the scandal was splashed all over the newspapers this this was long before gay liberation there's no goalie in nineteen sixty four there's no Brokeback mountain in nineteen sixty four of intense homophobia in fact the American psychiatric association didn't remove the diagnosis of homosexuality from its diagnostic and statistical manual list of mental illnesses until nineteen seventy three that's obscene but it's true and if you look at the press at the time not only do commentators just reviled Jenkins for his alleged perversion but they go on and on about how he's a security risk how we susceptible to blackmail virtually every story run on this affair asked to what extent has American security been compromised what other security risks this Johnson have in his government Johnson's campaign slogan all the way with LBJ acquired a new went on socks or connotation Goldwater came up with the slogan LBJ for moral decay and this is just a month before the election the other issue is more difficult to sum up Goldwater's crowds when he came to town to speak or hysterically adoring he was treated like a rock star the crowds may only represent a small minority of white right wing Americans but they were misinterpreted by a lot of pundits and quite a few members of Johnson's own staff as representative of a larger ground swell for Barry Goldwater the fact is Goldwater was handsome and commanding he was a skilled speaker with a feel for the well chosen phrase moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue and Lyndon Johnson had to come to terms with the fact that he Lyndon Johnson was just about the most about the least the least charismatic man ever to run for president although I might have to amend that statement a future lectures but for now open a channel I know it's maddening to try to boil politics down to something as ephemeral as personality but this was an issue with Johnson it's been an issue for historians dealing with Johnson it frequently affects scholarly judgment Johnson once said to a former secretary of state dean Acheson in nineteen sixty seven what about more for negroes in any president Lincoln but I'm more for the elderly than any president in history of taking millions of people out of poverty dammit dean why don't people like me and quote and Acheson replied quote because Mister president you are not very likable ma'am and crossed it's true he wasn't he just wasn't some of us just aren't this is the way it is and some of the most touching quotes you run across from Johnson has to do with his enormous in security his need to be liked if you listen to the Johnson White House tapes for this lengthy conversations with a press secretary George reading in which she talks about how poorly he comes across he describes himself as a heck in a freckle belly and would surrounded by all these glittering ivy league Kennedy people and the really sad thing is he wasn't far wrong in terms of how we came across to many people he just rubbed a lot of people the wrong way he was a big gross overbearing sweaty person that's just the way he was Dave Barry the humorist of service on a recent book of his quote Lyndon Johnson trying his darnedest by means of looking somber to the point of intestinal comp discomfort to convey integrity but nevertheless made you think immediately of the large comically dishonest Warner brothers cartoon rooster foghorn Leghorn and quot as some of you know Johnson taped on his telephone conversations while he was president I like to play a few minutes not from a telephone conversation he had with his the Taylor certain Mr Hagar from August of nineteen sixty four this comes from a documentary about Johnson and unfortunately the makers of this documentary had actor standing in for the people speaking on the tape it's very distracting the actor standing for Johnson doesn't look anything like Johnson but this is Johnson actual voice circle August nineteen sixty four I'm not saying Johnson was drunk when he made this call I'm saying I hope he was drunk yeah we all made me some Marino all right wait five.
"president johnson" Discussed on WIBC 93.1FM
"Impeach sometimes you say you're you hear people say we've had three presidents impeached. the truth of the matter is we've had no president's removed from office under the impeachment process. and I've said that to some people lately and they look at me funny and so will hold on. Bill Clinton was impeached well no it wasn't so okay wonder Johnson was impeached well no he wants it well Nixon surely Nixon was impeached well now in fact articles of impeachment we're not even voted on in the house of representatives in the Nixon situation so what is impeachment what is really look like and how does that apply to current events well first of all let's take stock of where we are sort of in the process with president trump because Democrats in the house have said they're going form forward with a an impeachment inquired and even some formally reluctant Democrats including speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi you're now seemingly on board with going forward with the impeachment process for what is the impeachment process I wasn't likely look like here what's going on right now the house is actually in recess but members of the Judiciary Committee and that's where things are residing right now that's where the activities occurring right now on the issue of impeachment and Adam Schiff who is chairman of that committee has told the Judiciary Committee members that they better plan on coming back to Washington sooner than later for hearings on the impeachment enquiring even during their two week process two week recess I should say in addition there are supposedly depositions and statements in interviews on going by investigators for the Judiciary Committee right now talking to members of the intelligence intelligence community talking to witnesses who may likely ultimately be called in the actual impeachment process to this things are on doing this week expect to see members of the house Judiciary Committee brought back to Washington for potential hearings even during this recess on the impeachment inquiry what again that's a status of where we are today well to the to the impeachment process for president trump has that fit into the overall process. where is that likely to lead that really requires a little bit of discussion of how impeachment actually works in this country why is it incorrect on that point to say that Andrew Johnson was impeach well impeachment proceedings were brought against President Johnson and interestingly enough in this is a I think an important lesson for how impeachment is likely to proceed today against president trump because in Johnson we're the constitution says that any federal officials including the president can be impeached for treason bribery and high crimes and misdemeanors treason bribery and high crimes and misdemeanors well folks of said well we have a defined crawling which is treason we have defined crime which is bribery high crimes kind of sounds like felonies and then misdemeanors in those are defined by criminal statute across the country and for that reason a lot of folks have said historically the you can only impeach someone including a president if they've committed a criminal act they've committed an act that could send them to jail in a lot of folks have pointed to what you're talking about the alleged collusion which turned out to be a complete hoax completely unsubstantiated what you're talking about obstruction of justice relative to the Russian collusion investigation obviously the Mueller report as we to talk we've discussed over and over was somewhat ambiguous on the question of obstruction of justice but on any of those issues we've looked at it and said alright where's the crime can certainly where's the conduct that would land for in this case president trump the jail were he not a president where's the high crime or misdemeanor interestingly enough this comes back to me and Johnson Andrew Johnson was really impeach for purely political reasons. you had an ongoing dispute with Congress about appointments particularly Edwin Stanton S. secretarial more and it was an ongoing dispute about whether the president could remove different cabinet members in Congress had passed tax per limiting or preventing him from doing so and he said damn the torpedoes and then a purely political battle he removed folks from his cabinet that he didn't want his cabinet Congress did much like that but it was essentially a political debate you could look long and hard through the allegations. against President Johnson did not come up with anything that looks like an actual crime anything looks like certainly a high crime or misdemeanor this isn't a debate that's range throughout the impeachment process in this country throughout our history really starting with Randy Johnson but including many other impeachment process is because we've had impeachment trials for instance in the Senate after articles of impeachment were were delivered and voted upon approved in the house on judges in on other federal officials then some folks yes and no president but some some federal officials have been impeached what is a high crime or misdemeanor that's not defined in the constitution. and you know what it's come to me throughout the impeachment process in the US it basically means whatever the house of representatives decides it means now that doesn't mean a particular president or in this case president trump gets impeached for gets removed from office it didn't mean that by a long shot. it does not mean that by a long shot but in terms of the decision of whether to approve. and send articles of impeachment to the Senate. the house can do that based on about whatever reason that wants to. I can define high crimes and misdemeanors pretty much like it wants to. that isn't in.
Fed Considers Rate Cut as Political Pressure Mounts
"Now, our main story this morning, just how President Trump's repeated hectoring of the Federal Reserve has complicated interest rate decisions. Here's what the president had to say to CNBC yesterday in response to a question about whether he thought the fed had listened to him. Listen to me, and get a we have people, it's more than just Jay Powell. We have people on the fed really weren't, you know, they're not might people. So how has this changed the environment in which the fed must determine whether economic conditions warrant a rate cut are fed reporter, Nick Tim Roche has been speaking to Charlie Turner from Washington. Well, let's be up front about this Nick has any fed chief ever faced such pressure before, from a president actually, yes, you could probably say that this is something fed cheers in the postwar period, have faced, what's different about President Trump? Is that his criticism has been much more public of the fed? So just to. Go back in time in the nineteen sixties, the fed chairman by the name of William mcchesney Morgan was very unpopular with president Johnson recall Johnson was trying to boost domestic spending while fighting the Vietnam war, and he did not like the fact that the fed was raising borrowing costs to limit inflation. And so he was very critical privately of Martin. There's a story about how he pushed him up against the wall said my boys are dying in Vietnam. And you won't give me the money I need. So there is a history of presidents putting pressure usually in private on the fed chair. What's different about this president is that he does it pretty often in public via Twitter via interviews or off the cuff statements to reporters on his way to Marine One helicopter. And so it creates a perception problem for the fed because the fed doesn't want to be seen by the markets is responding to anything but the economic and financial. Data that they analyze that could change the way investors. Think about inflation, and bond yields, and so forth. You described three challenges fed chair pal is navigating at this point. What are they so the fed has to set the right interest rate of the right time? The fed has to explain clearly, what they're doing and why they're doing it, and those are two challenges that every fed leader faces, but the third one is unique as we've talked about. And that is he has to deal with this public pressure, campaign, very loud, criticism from the president something that we haven't seen since the early nineteen nineties President George Bush senior was the last president who even said publicly what he thought the fed should be doing President Clinton and his two successors Bush, and Obama maintained this rule where they were not going to comment on the fed, and Clinton's advisers convinced him. This was a good policy for them because they had seen how President Bush. This is a first President Bush had called on Greenspan to lower rates. And Greenspan didn't go along with it. And so Clinton's advisers told him, look, you really don't have anything to gain by pressuring the fed. They're going to do what they think they need to do. And you putting pressure on them isn't gonna make their life any easier. They may feel like they have to do the opposite to to, you know, to look independent so Clinton and then Bush forty three and Obama never said anything about the fed, and that was a tradition that continued up until about a year and a half into Donald Trump's presidency doesn't fed chairman pal. Face pressure to cut rates for the rest of the year, including at the June meeting. So the Fed's next meeting is in less than two weeks on June.
As China Trade Talks Stall, Xi Faces a Dilemma: Fold? Or Double Down?
"So the Chinese are being pushed by President Trump. And now the question becomes are they going to fold and do the right thing? Or are they going to double down? And are we going to trade war? Then you're at times reports that now president, gee is facing a dilemma should he fold or should he double down? And this is where the good side of President Trump's push could be right. If you were using the leverage point and not as natural policy case for that. Here's your time says as Chinese and American officials to reach a trade deal. President Johnson ping faces a painful possibly damaging choice to try to protect his or of in Zometa -bility or retreat after President Trump accused China of reneging on the terms of a draft agreement and threatened to raise tariffs the stakes rose sharply for the Chinese leader this week after Mr. Trump and his chief Trade Representative Robert lighthizer publicly accused China of backing down on commitments the sticking point appeared to be late decision by Mr. g reject Americans man's that trying to change was constraining American businesses when from onto Twitter to complain. It was. A public rebuke. The put g in a tight spot. She is China's most powerful leader in decades. He guards his images of visionary statesman guiding his country greatness, China's relationship of the United States is it's most important relationship. If ties between the countries are mismanage that could damage China's economy and tarnish, she's image trade talks just last week close to fruition have abruptly become a flash point in the rocky relationship g now faces questions at home over whether he miscalculated from resolve domestic rumblings could grow if the United States forces you to make concessions or if the talks break down, according to Paul Henley, a former Trenin director on the national Security Council who now runs the Carnegie Shinwa center for global policy in Beijing z. She is walking tight rope. His going to be the one that has to make the most concessions, and that makes us all the more difficult for him. On Thursday short shortly before the trade talks set to resume, of course, North Korea shot a short range missiles United States have been pushing China to get involved. Even if the timing of launches a coincidence, perhaps that puts pressure on the United States to point out that that China needs to be a partner. Leo, he is China's chief negotiator. He said, quote, I come bearing sincerity hoping the current special circumstances till the reason Frank exchange views with the US side. China believes that increasing tariffs will it solve problems won't benefit China or the United States, nor will benefit the global economy. China had been willing to protect intellectual property and open its markets to American business. But the Trump administration wanted the agreements specify that some of those changes actually be made in Chinese law. Apparently China didn't want to do that they wanted to make an informal policy and Trump was saying no, you need to change your law. So that formerly you cannot renege on this agreement.
The climate change lawsuit that could stop the US government from supporting fossil fuels
"Than Juliana versus the United States to quote, one federal judge. This is no ordinary lawsuit. It was filed back in two thousand fifteen on behalf of a group of kids who were trying to get the courts to block the US government from continuing the use of fossil fuels they say it's causing climate change endangering their future in violating their constitutional rights to life liberty and property when the lawsuit began hardly anyone took it seriously, including the government's lawyers who have sensed watched the supreme court rejected two of their motions to delay or dismissed the case for years in it is still very much alive in part because the plaintiff. So the master body of evidence that will surprise even the skeptics in a force the governor. To admit that the crisis is real.

Her main concern is climate change drought and the growing threat of wildfires in the surrounding cascade mountains there has wildfire season. That was so intense. We advised not to go outside that particular matter in the smoke was literally off the charts. I mean, it was so bad. It was it was passed severe in terms of danger health in new that's because of plummet change. That's what scientists tell me. It's not just scientists even the federal government. Now knowledge is in its response to the lawsuit that the effects of. Climate change are already happening and likely to get worse, especially for young people who will have to deal with them for the long term important as this case to you.

"president johnson" Discussed on American History Tellers
"In the race for the presidency. The match up was set Humphry for the Democrats versus Nixon for the Republicans from the start things looked very good for Nixon his party was United behind him. And he'd locked down his nomination with little fuss. In contrast. The Democrats were a disaster. Their convention had been one long bloody screaming match and the party was still divided with about four weeks to go until the election Humphrey trail, Nixon in the polls Humphries numbers were so bad. He seemed more like a third party candidate doing only about as well as the actual third party candidate George Wallace desperation pushed Humphrey to at last publicly contradict his boss. President Johnson he told an audience in Salt Lake City that if elected he'd order an end to all bombings in North Vietnam. The gambit worked in the coming days. He saw a sharp increase in donations. And suddenly there were no. Protesters gathered at his campaign stops it also helped the openly racist George Wallace was having trouble gaining traction outside the deep south and area. Typically held by Democrats as campaigning heated up in October Humphrey had Nixon's lead cut down to just eight points. Nixon chose to stay the course on P at Phnom. He avoided specifics and instead relied upon broad statements about nationalism and American values. When pressed Nixon claimed his goal was to avoid undermining president Johnson strategy and potential peace efforts. But it turns out Nixon was lying. In late October news broke Johnson was nearing a peace deal between north and South Vietnam. The South Vietnamese scuttled these plans when they abruptly walked away from negotiations. It was later revealed that Nixon played a key and secret role in the sudden breakdown of talks Nixon's team was close with Anna Chenault, member of the China lobby and a Republican fundraiser channel was closed with the South Vietnamese and told them to hold off on a goal sheeting piece. She argued that it was much smarter to wait until Nixon was president. He would be able to get them a better deal. Nixon's game made sense for a man bent on winning the presidency at all costs. He was well aware that if peace was one on Johnson's watch Humphrey, his vice president would benefit Nixon couldn't allow Humphrey the opportunity to boast that he was part of the administration that ended the war just days before the. Action Nixon considered his underhanded maneuver an act of political survival. But Johnson, call it treason. Unfortunately for Johnson he was in no position to throw stones he'd had Chenault illegally surveilled. And this was the only reason he even knew what Nixon had done though. Aides press Johnson to leak details. Nixon's plot anyways Johnson refused. He simply couldn't prove that Nixon personally directed all to sabotage than to go. She actions and in the end Nixon's plan worked. Three days after South Vietnamese, president win van to announce that piece was off the table, Richard Nixon defeated Hubert Humphrey and was elected the thirty seventh president of the United States in the coming years. Details of what came to be known as the Chenault affair did leak, but Nixon and Chenault steadfastly denied the charges though, Chenault finally came clean in her nineteen eighty autobiography Nixon maintained innocence until his dying day. It wasn't until two thousand seventeen that his role in the scheme was finally confirmed when biographer John Farrell uncovered damning notes taken by Nixon's right hand, man, h r Haldeman. Nixon won with three hundred one electoral vote for Humphries one hundred ninety one and wall says forty six the result of the popular vote was much closer with Nixon getting forty three point four percent over Humphries forty two point seven Wallace got thirteen point five percent of the popular vote. The results though, spelled trouble for the Democrats near term future, adding Nixon and Wallace's popular vote. Percentages reveals at fifty seven percent of Americans voted against the Democrats and worse forty percent of those who voted for Johnson and sixty four voted for Nixon and sixty eight the Democrats emerged from nineteen sixty eight profoundly damaged until then they could reliably count on the support of the south. But in sixty eight they lost the south to Wallace and would never recover it..

Abraham LINCOLN proclaimed that the government of the people by the people for the people shall not perish from the earth. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion one hundred years later in nineteen sixty four our federal government began its war on poverty as a program for the people following president Johnson's lead the federal government began the food stamp program. The Medicaid program head start and job corps. The goals of all of these programs were to promote health prevent hunger and give every person a chance to pursue the American dream the same dream that are relatives pursue generations ago. Well, over the past few weeks, the American public Health Association and other health organizations report that these same programs have seen a precipitous drop in enrollment p. People are even asking that their names be removed from their rosters, certainly hunger and access to healthcare remain critical problems. So what's going on? Dr John Troy till a public health expert explains why people on government assistance, like food stamps are not signing up. If somebody is here legally, and is according to the government excessively dependent on government support for their day-to-day needs. Then the government may decide that they should not stay here in the United States. So some of the most vulnerable people in society who are trying to integrate with our culture are left wondering if using public health benefits, like food stamps could cost them a chance for a green card. Well, federal policy hasn't yet changed fear of deportation targeting legal immigrants who use these. Benefits is already being felt the effects of this proposed legislation is not just on the immigrants. The impact may be greatest on those who already US citizens or have green cards you see in mixed status families where you have a US legal citizen living with family members. Who are not yet citizens? You can have a chilling effect. They are definitely afraid then they pull out they withdraw all the members of the family from these programs actually, the chilling effect affects more people than the direct effect. In addition. The proposed new rules would hardly be cost effective at best. They are penny wise and pound foolish. These are essential services that people need to maintain their health and to be able to function productively in our society today's immigrants do not. Come here to take advantage of our government programs immigrants want the same American dream that we all want if we create policies that engender fear among the twenty three million non-citizens, we are going to see hungry children people avoiding emergency rooms, we could have outbreaks of communicable diseases children, not getting vaccinated and a lack of prenatal care.

Joey, joey. Cucumbers or something? Yeah. He didn't have that put a trail on his name by buying it that way, and when he was investigated when he was arrested. They knew where he was they went right to the movie theater when they when they interrogated him. There was no tape. There was no written notes he came out, and they put him in front of the public, and he had a black guy. And he asked a lawyer. That's when he said, I'm a Patsy, and he also had connections with the FBI in New Orleans would an FBI agent James host. So I mean, they were setting up the paper trail to prove that he was the lone gunman there. He left his fingerprints on the rifle in the window. How easy is all of this to follow it. And to see anybody with a cheap scope on it. I mean, it wasn't a killing a high powered rifle that was a bolt action. World War Two surplus right weapon.

One of the guys was Robert Morgenthau are US attorney from New York when Bobby Witt's the Senator in New York, and he had told him that he thought he was responsible for his brother's death by going after. Castro and by going after the mob, and he had talked to mccown and mccone told him privately he thought there might have been to shooters. So Bobby was convinced that his brother was killed by somebody the reason I think that the killers of of JFK we're still around some of them in nineteen sixty eight because Kennedy was on his way to the nomination and more than likely to send mental favorite of the country to be elected to the presidency and these people in the mafia from trapper Conti from. Marcello and and. In Chicago with his name. Yeah. All new that Bobby with ferocious Bobby take Nixon's office by he taped, LBJ sweet and Nixon suite at the at the convention. Bobby broke into Nixon psychiatrist office dry and get things on him. So he was vicious, and they knew that and at the same time, I believe that was a little bit of a problem in the mob because of a power struggle Costello got shot in New York, and he was out banana quit, and he went to Jared, Donna, these are two crime family head and this left the opening for the Gambino family to become the powers, so traffic Conte Marcello Andean, Connor. You know, basically, the guys that were running the show at this time. And I think that that's where it all leads to and they they had to kill Bobby because they knew he would come after them. And that's the end the my story. Well, I'll tell you the JD put out the thanks J D, great great job, man. And he put a lot of things out there free to chew on. Now. We kind of leaked ahead of things a little bit. But what do you think about what J D? Yeah. What he said is exactly the couple of the facts. A little bit off. But because the historical events in the orders are just a hanger off like Kennedy and Nixon that that was after J F K died, but anyhow the point being he's right on the money. And he is correct. That you can't just stop the story and say lone nut three shots. It just suddenly got the win the night before to kill the president. Because all these other questions are out there and all these other situations exist, you can't pretend they're not true. I think you own exists. Because if you don't tell that part of the story, then you're duping, the American people, let me let the audience know that if you go back and listen to the show on the podcasts anybody could do it. And we've got people right now that's listening from all over the world on this show. And I'm getting feedback. Like, you can't believe Tony like I say, congratulations on on everything we put together last night in a new being once again available to come in the studio for all five hours. But I'm getting unbelievable feedback from everybody. One of the best shows ever how much they're in those by it. I mean right now the phone lines lit backup all over the the board. We've got a brand new collar on there. And I'm gonna get every. Okay. So hang in there. But this is something like you call it before what you call it. The greatest mystery in the country or. The greatest murder mystery of all time, and you can't just stop and say oh well random. Yeah. There's too much out there that doesn't necessarily point that way. Is it possible that some loan not like Oswald did this? Yes, it's possible. But what what the rest of the story go. And if you leave it there, then you just forget the system because if that's the case, then whoever wants somebody else to be president. And like you mentioned Trump in today's world, then forget the will of the people and forget, that's right. That's right. The constitution. Just let's pick presidents by who we want and the ones we don't want will eliminate. That's horrific. And here's something that's factual. We hit it last night for anybody. That didn't hear the show last night LBJ in Bobby hated each other John Kennedy was going to replace LBJ on on his ticket for vice president Johnson always wanted to be president. He didn't really want nothing to do with being vice president, blah, blah, blah. And so Babi in LBJ were at each other's throat from day one in all these different events. And like we talked about before and let the audience know that it was Joe Kennedy the dad that's swung the election in nineteen sixty with the mob. Boy, that's a documented fact he'd been running booze in in cahoots with the Bob boys and buddies with them for how many years, Tony, right Manny. So the point is you can't forget that those things occurred and just all factual. And we're not talking about. No kooks are no people that have thrown in these ridiculous stories like people shot them the sewer and that aliens. Ridiculous. And maybe some of that is intentional ready airings to make the intelligent researchers. Look stupid. Yeah. There you go. It's like, it's almost you're sending them off on a trail that you know, is going to end in stupidity now. Here's one thing. Okay. Hold on. I want to read this note that I actually I think it's the lady I'm pretty sure that Senate last night on on the Facebook messenger service, and I didn't see it till early this morning. But I think you guys would be surprised. Listen, hang on your stinger. I want everybody to hear this. Okay. And it says Dave I worked for a gentleman who was recruited to the O S S in nineteen thirty eight after graduated from MIT. Okay. So she's getting a little background this guy. He said that he met Oswal in New Orleans prior to the JFK assassination. We know Oswald. Was there Oswald was working with them? So he says here that. According to this guy Oswal was working with the o s s before the assassination. Now, we can circle back about Oswal being Russia. How did he go there this that whatever at that time? There was a lot of secrecy between the FBI and the CIA remember Kennedy's one to end the CIA. My boss was moved to marathon Florida in the early fifties and started a camp to harbor Cuban refugees. They would aim for the keys down there. And there's a key lightning. We go out and pick them up when they were coming across the ocean or whatever airport or airplane flights to look for people crossing. He said RFK sent some FBI agents to his place, and he held them at gunpoint and called the sheriff to arrest them. The coastguard was aware of this transfer camp there is more. But see if your guests those about the New Orleans trip by Oswald course, you're pretty well versed. Tony with the new. New orleans. And of course, we got that famous movie that Oliver Stone did in that was one of Jim garrison's connections about Oswald down there what he was really doing. So we got about a minute for the break here. So go ahead. Yeah. Exactly Oswald was in New Orleans and back and forth to Dallas entire two and a half years and he lived once he got back here. The point being. Yes, there is a lot of people that say things like what your guests. They poster just said that there's too many people that say they saw Waldir saw dare he was involved in these meetings. There is a a big one lady by Nina Silvia Odio who testified early in the Warren commission or didn't testify, but her story was out there that a bunch of anti-castro Cuban showed up to try to take Castro out. And one of them was introduced as Leopoldo, and it was at her view. It was Oswald. And yeah, so it's it's like all these little rogue elements that were going around right in New Orleans, and and you can't just ignore the tactic these things exist. My point is at a lot of people out there that claim that Oswald was some kind of agent, and we take our break. But there was some kind of agent, and that's how he was able to go to Russia, and he had a wife that was from a high powered. Family there. He come back here. And then he shows up down in may co and blah, blah, blah. So this ain't conspiracy. Stop this is all factual stuff is just a question of everybody's been out there trying to discredit it. So let's go ahead. We'll take our little short break, and we'll come back more with Tony and your call stares up next. We'll take that little short break right here. Eighteen. The.
