Randy E. Barnett Explains the Original Meaning of the 14th Amendment

"The original meeting of the Fourteenth Amendment tell us a thumbnail sketch What's in the Fourteenth Amendment And what did the drafters intend Right Well after the Civil War the Republicans in Congress prohibited slavery in the Thirteenth Amendment and they had every reason to believe that once slavery was abolished then the freed men and the Republican allies in the south would be able to go about their business But that of course is not what happened What happened instead was the imposition on African Americans of the black codes which were discriminatory set of laws that basically reduced our freed men to something close to slavery as close to slavery as they could get And white Republicans in the south were also being put upon by militiamen and other armed terrorists and everybody there especially African Americans were the subject of massacres and other sorts of abuses And so in response to this white supremacy this movement is organized terrorism on behalf of white supremacy The Republicans and Congress did a lot to fight back They passed the Civil Rights Act of 1866 which protected fundamental rights but it was vetoed by president Johnson who said they didn't have the authority to pass it Most Republicans thought they did They overwhelmingly approved it over the retail But just to be sure and to make sure that the law wouldn't be repealed when the Democrats came back they enacted the Fourteenth Amendment So the Fourteenth Amendment goes beyond the Thirteenth Amendment to protect the fundamental rights of each and every one of us as citizens of the United States from being abused by our government So every time the members of your audience have heard about a First Amendment challenge to the states or a Second Amendment challenge to the states they are really actually hearing about a Fourteenth Amendment challenge as you know Mark Although they're doing the challenges are happening under the wrong

You broke his great to be with you. I wanna start with where you started. You give your initial experience very short shrift. When asked why did you cross the ocean to cover a war. When you're so young you said the short answer was a nightmare. I was all too keen to leave behind. My masters adviser had rejected my thesis on the bangladesh war of independence after. I refused to sleep with him and he said one wasn't related to the other. Just tell me what happened. This was nineteen seventy two and there weren't that many women in graduate school and he made a move. And i said no. He pressed on and i said no he rejected. The thesis. said. I had to work harder on it. Then resisted any idea that one related to the other. That even made a pass at me.

"So who are who are the because I'm convinced Johnson President Johnson and his when they made this big turn. These guys were practically clan members at the time, they were known racist, their entire life. And even after they quote unquote had a conversion, they were still pretty damn Racists. Who? Who are these liberals? Or who were they? I think for Lyndon Johnson having to negotiate as racist as he Woz having to negotiate with Martin Luther King Jr. I don't think he liked that. I think he came up. I think he came up with a solution. So this will never happen again. And they pivoted black people and that whole civil rights movement driven by Christians and people of religious faith. It doesn't just have to be Christian, but people that submitted to a higher power that whole movement Comes from out of the church and come from out of faith in God, faith in a higher power. They were going to cut off that power. Connect these people to politics and other things. And now black people's identity is connected to liberalism. You have to in order to be black. You have to be liberal and as black people, I don't think we fully understand how the label liberal is being used. Get to me and it will take time. I'll say it and you'll have to think about it for a day to fully get it. But the label liberalism is the new KKK hood. You just Put it over your head, and no one knows you're a bigot. And so you could be as big as you wanted me. You put the KKK hood all you could go out and kill people burn crosses. No one knows that you you get to do all kinds of racism and then go back into your life and pretend like it, wasn't you. But the liberal hood on You conduce Anything? And there is no condemnation. Anything you do is a gift from God. If you write the crime bill that black people say led the mass incarceration. Joe Biden because he's got that liberal hood. Oh, no. One. It's Joe Biden. He's the little that was unintended consequences. That was an honest mistake. There was no intent there. There was no malice. Juxtapose that too conservative. There's no upside to being called a conservative. If you're white, you're racist homophobe IQ and just anything bad. If you're black, you're a sellout. And so I'm not even political. I've never voted. I'm not really into politics. I'm just not as bothered my whole family that I'm just not into it, but I am conservative. Because of my upbringing in the church and my upbringing as a football player is an athlete. I am conservative. There's no upside in. Oh, now I'm a sellout. Now I must not like black people. But you thought that liberal hood on Always forgiven. You can rape kill, uh plan, abortion clinics and every black neighborhood across the country. Just killing them Babies. That's good for them. Anything that they do. Is a positive if you put that liberal hood on, and I just I'm trying to wake black people of like, Hey, The cake has no influence, no power, no real traction anymore. They've converted to liberal. And that's what's undermining black people's freedom. Rise. Success elevation, and this whole thing of looking at black skin is the defining characteristic of black people. That started 400 years ago with people that enslaved black people. All your black that defines you. That means Your freedom is limited in X Y and Z ways. Now they're coming 400 years later, the descendants, the ideological descendants of those people have let's capitalize. The B. The AP did this The Associated Press and all the mainstream media has followed Black Is this special characteristic and distinction that we set off in a category different than everybody else. And we we get to define what black is and we now limit your ability. You go out and chase being black while everybody else Goes out chases, freedom chases faith in God. Chase's family chases intelligence vote. They get to go after those characteristics as their defining their men. Women to sit out there. You know, I want to be known as a family man. I want to be known as a Christian. I want to be known as an honest person as black people. The only option we have is You have to be known as black and white liberals in Hollywood, in the music industry and in the movie and TV industry. They get to decide what black is, and then you have to live up to that standard. It is crazy. I could spend a long time with you. I'd love to have you on one of the podcast where I could just let you run because I think what you say What you write is so well thought out, and, um and needs to be heard. Really needs to be heard. I'm I'm glad your voices out there. Appreciate it. Glad. Thank you. Give me a better car. Next time I could be. Oh, yes, Is that.

'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.

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

"Nineteen brought to you by the national association of broadcasters and the station all right so President Johnson doing what he does so well and that is injections which I love so so the president it's supposed to be this announcement that she has this new house committee with subpoena power of the president's administration for corona virus oversight and it is she is she said in a conference call with the media she said it would have subpoena power that's for sure it's no use having a committee unless you would have subpoena power and we would hope that there would be cooperation because this is not a kind of investigation of the administration it's about the whole response so this is about the ministration is just about the ministrations response to the corona virus and how's this for rich she wants to put James Clyburn to chair this James Clyburn the man during the last coronavirus bill who said well we could use this to further our agenda that James Clyburn yeah it's it's gross it's like she talk about morally one tank like that woman it just it should there is no basement for her she shows as low as you can possibly go and you think that like okay there's there's this big moment where Americans are increasingly dying by the day over a thousand Americans dying a day from corona virus anything maybe she would like to tap the brakes just a little bit and say okay look all the politics aside here with the president figure out a way to get past this then we can go back to the old bickering nope nope gotta figure out a way to disqualify him got to stop them that hurt him does this now is the time well they're desperate do you have an election coming up in November right now it doesn't look like Joe Biden's gonna even I don't know show up for it so they they're desperate and so this is anything for the party in much like didn't Gordon Chang tell us that's what the Chinese are all about spring there's the Democrats have to contempt of so is she compared the committee to the Senate bipartisan committee that was chaired by us at the time senator Harry Truman in nineteen forty one to investigate waste fraud and abuse and death in the defense spending in the early days of World War two so what she's doing this for is he wants to ensure that the emergency relief to two trillion an emergency release art relief are spent carefully and effectively they're going to investigate how the private sector is spending its government funds and pressed to insure that the federal response is based on science and health experts and they're gonna fight against profiteering political favoritism price gouging I actually laughed out loud when I heard that anyone in Congress Democrat or Republican was going to be in charge of making sure that money spent properly I thought really that's really right sorry she would go over well because that's just not going to happen and by the way it's like okay let's just takers face value for just a second and few of us have proper oversight she has an oversight committee she got a bunch of committees that are designed specifically to have oversight of various aspects of the government if they want to do that job they should do that job because that is their job but the she wants to give it a special little touch if she can make the corona virus you know review committee or whatever they're gonna call this thing it's going to be designed to attack the president nonstop in the interest of helping Joe Biden's campaign that is the sole purpose of this yeah that's that's all this is going to be so I thought that that was hilarious the president of course responded saying it's not the time for politics and conducting partisan investigations in the middle of a pandemic is a big waste of vital resources I want to move on before when a time here to Chuck Schumer because Chuck Schumer and the president have been going back and forth and it's the president wrote one of the best letters ever and I want to should be able to share it with you so Chuck Schumer sent a letter to the president yesterday saying that it was long past the time to name a senior military officer to lead the corona virus related to the medical supply distribution and production and he wants is our name who would have the ability to use the defense production act because they're not happy that the president is not forcing companies to do things right he's not heavy handed enough hours in companies to do things he's not heavy handed enough according to crying Chuck Schumer so this though the president responded to that to that letter with another letter I'm not going to read all of it but he sends this letter did Chuck Schumer and he says thank you for your Democrat public relations letter an incorrect sound bites which are wrong in every way as you are aware vice president pence is in charge of the task force then he goes on to say that the does the DPA has been consistently used by my team and me for the purchase of billions of dollars worth of equipment and on and on and on and he says there is a senior military officer in charge of purchasing distributing his name is rear admiral John polacek is working twenty four hours a day and it is on to say how much that they have given New York and supplies and you said you should have had New York much better prepared than you did New York was very late in its fight against the virus and then he ends it with this paragraph for you ready if you spent less time on your ridiculous impeachment hoax which one helplessly on forever and ended up going nowhere except increasing my poll numbers and instead focused on helping the people of New York the New York would not have been so completely unprepared for the invisible enemy no wonder AOC and others are thinking about running against you in the primary if they did they would likely win you know it's strange the first letter is the letter was savage no question it was the savage and but something in politico this morning that apparently Schumer had a conversation on the phone with trump yesterday afternoon this letter was already on the way and trump told Schumer this is according to politico that he was in the process of sending quote a very nasty letter but he would try to stop the latter from being sent this is according to Schumer's office and trump said that he would apologize if he was unable to prevent the letter from going out and then the letter went out okay but wait a minute but but then Schumer is on MSNBC he doubles down alone this this is cut eight Luke listen to what he says so if that phone call took place then why this so this morning I sent the president a letter and said why don't you invoke the defense production act and put in place eight military person somebody who knows command and control someone who knows logistics someone who knows quarter mastery to not only commandeer factories and supply chains to make the stuff that we need desperately need but also to distribute in the places that are most needed some not the fifty governors will be hunting and pecking and then I spoke to the president late this afternoon explained it and the result is this letter and so on I'm just appalled you know I'd say to the president yes stop the pettiness people are dying and so president trump we need leadership we need to get the job done stop the pettiness well he could say the same thing right back to him and he what he should do is bring pelo cedar hill that's what he should do you wanna stop the pettiness get Nancy Pelosi under control stop the nonsense of launching a committee designed to attack the president in fact this is called the committee to attack the president because that's what it is and stop the nonsense in the midst of the crisis and focused on saving lives use the use the very words you just use your self because the Democratic Party it is is being led by people like Nancy Pelosi we're looking for an opportunity to exploit this to hurt their political opponents yeah well it's never about them is never about their behavior they get away with anything they want and they do it with a with without

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

Comparing the impeachment trials of President Clinton and President Trump

"Right now on Capitol Hill ahead of the one PM eastern resumption of the Senate impeachment trial of president trump some Senate Republicans are holding a news conference led by Lindsey Graham South Carolina chair of the Judiciary Committee thank you all very much observations about yesterday it was a long day but that's okay a lot of Americans have long days a couple things I've been involved into impeachment trials this is the second one I just want to make an observation here what the house managers were proposing yesterday is basically destroy the institution of the presidency as we know it make it make it when it comes to the partisan impeachment not have a venue to go to court and litigate privileges at the end of an exercise our prior presence when it comes to Donald Trump willing to destroy the institution of the office in the name of getting him so bottom line the Clinton impeachment was conducted by outside counsel there's not here Ken Starr spent five years investigating the president before we took up the matter in the house the president was allowed to cross examining Ken Starr at the house Judiciary Committee he recommended eleven grounds for impeachment and president Clinton utilize the court's extensively on his behalf Robert Mull was an outside counsel appointed to investigate this press I want the public to note that this president cooperated with Mister Miller he turned over million documents his lawyer testified for thirty hours and after two years of investigation with nineteen lawyers forty F. B. I. agents two thousand subpoenas and five hundred search warrants they decided to take no action they said there was no collusion between the trump campaign and the Russian government when it came to 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

"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.

N. because they're gonna see just how bad it's going to get in there gonna step in and say if you don't clean up your act or to take over you do realize why they're doing this to trump the was at it he's exposing all it corruption well I mean mimicked the corruption has been rampant you get you get the vice president United States on collecting a payday for doing nothing now what do you suppose that is I mean it's just ridiculous let's see what I was thinking and and you know it may and I was wrong about this maybe not maybe we saw of time but I was thinking that this was going to be two birds with one stone we go after trump and we we say that he was corrupt with this whole Ukrainian bang and then we go after Biden's saying well what was your son doing that's the questions that are raised you are the one to go after the other and Biden's taken out because he's a traditional Democrat are you kidding me he's not he's not he's not a bear with Bernie and Elizabeth Warren he's kind of like fossel compared to them you know it's curious about all list though why would the Democrats push this knowing that Biden's gonna get swept up in it you know it's almost like they want because they because this is not being run by the Democrats is being run by the deep state that's why Hey it well you're you're right there you're absolutely this is why when and this is why wouldn't you know when people paying people with brushes and they and they they tend to say well this is what the left is doing this with the rise doing when nothing makes sense as you just stated when nothing made sense when the hypocrisy is to a high pitch it's because the ponds are basically doing the bidding of the deep state they're doing the bidding of those who are not elected that are running the show behind the scenes it doesn't make any sense to you it doesn't make any sense to me so yep say well who is the people who are the people behind the curtain that the global us the people the banksters the the you know the big corporations that run the world they're the ones really pulling the strings with all the politicians in this country and in the lobby the lobby she should be against our constitution we should not allow lobbies in this country anymore well we see the damages it does yeah we see a lot of damage is done by that while high paid stuff in of course like I say we have a lot of consultants and others there in the behind the scenes are card carrying members the Bilderberg group they go to working in Grove they all gather on the our only try to figure out what they gonna do with the rest of the country and this is something that I think we really need to be aware of who are the people behind the scenes pulling the strings in the public masters we call the dates okay it was out of the bushes are gonna vote for Hillary Clinton yeah we'll be you did that make any sense yeah I did make a since all will it is the reason why did make any sense with because Hillary Clinton was the choice they want to put in there because she is basically guided by the the the council on foreign relations you know the council for relations the puppet master for the Clintons they've been that way for a long time yeah exactly so I mean if the legal actions that were called before the west coast even had a chance to vote was obviously pushed by the deep state I don't know if we've had a fair election except for maybe with trump's and in decades I'm over even tries was even fair there was something going on in selling the went on here that that doesn't make any sense and I'm not saying that the the popular vote yeah the popular vote was the thing that would would get Hillary and what I'm saying is is that ever since the two thousand election I've always been leery of of of what's going on in government and it didn't it it was solidified after the two thousand election well they they were all Beilin against him something fierce right in the very get go like I said sells me he was he was up to use to the deep state let's see what I'm what I'll bless when trying to explain is the reason why I didn't feel right was because I know would give US president trump algorithms algorithms created our president no doubt my mind the algorithm for for president trump the algorithm suggested president trump the people voted for president trump yeah well I I I was strong on trump right from the beginning because quite frankly he's the only one in my lifetime that has stood up for this country done anything you know I got arrested deck yeah well like I say the guy has gone as he always has and you know if you like that you know like I said give me if you like the populist movements are happening because fanaticism on the left is growing as long as they can being fanatics and they keep being in your face they keep doing these things are gonna solidify the anger of the right instead of just mailing out and letting this all goes through saying look okay so we don't like trump we're going to wait until we to get strong candidate and then we're gonna vote that candidate in they don't do that hotel lives collide if fighting for their lives when they're gonna lose they're going to lose that if this backfires it does like I said it's going to do they're gonna lose and that's and that is going to be one of those things where you don't watch the entire series was somebody says will watch the last couple episodes you'll figure it all out that's why I think we can do here when I watch the last.

HSL drive home and well it's an interesting week no doubt unfortunately unable to have a Catholic we game of the week of course you just heard Wayne St Paul in double overtime in their basketball game verso had many can eighty seven eighty six but we're here now talking high school football it is district playoff time we still five teams entering tonight from the Catholic League MHSAA playoff contention one got a win tonight one got a loss three more play tomorrow we'll get into all that just a second but again here without a floating out of how we doing here a a water we now week number eleven week eleven Brendan if I always said every single week it's hard to believe there were already at this point but we had only a couple games in the Catholic League tonight that we are following very closely and one of which as you mentioned you've the Jesuit cubs don't mean distiller thunder but you the judge cubs they come away with a win tonight over Farmington eleven to ten and Jackson lumen Christi unfortunately NZ the dream season of river givers start tonight forty two to fourteen well it's pretty quick look at your alliance Catholic credit union scoreboard reporter it right there for tonight the only two Catholic League games going on we'll get into the Saturday games and just a little bit but we're here with you right until ten o'clock we're talking about tonight's games were talking about the games that will happen tomorrow as well but a big one right there that out if just mention UT jazz what they when the district championship and this is now their most wins in a season since two thousand one when they went ten and three that's eight error win number eight for you of the jazz with on the season as they win the dist title tonight they'll go on to play three Martin Luther king in the regional so that'll definitely be a challenging matchup for you of the is it would be well for anybody in division two is maybe king is the the projected favorite right now in D. two I have to imagine so looking at the look at the bracket on the west side of the state king has to be the favorite to win division two but for UT jazz what what a big win tonight what a big win last week as well as the beat north Farmington a team that was previously undefeated nine and all going into the game you teach as what takes care business thirty four twenty one then tonight going for two in the first quarter proving to really make the differences you've D. went up eight to seven after trailing seven nothing they went on to win eleven to ten that final score should going for two proving to be the difference there and sometimes you know the risk her chip but tonight the gamble is what well one UT jazz with the football game Brendan we were talking off air about the decision to go for two and is a very you could say very on Matt Lewis like decision to go for too after that the after that touchdown but I think he was playing on their on the elements it was a very cold night tonight the defense is dominated the entire time and UV made more stops and ultimately that one point going for to prove to be the difference and in the game well one thing that you've digest what has going for them and we've seen it time and time again they have some real tenacity on that defensive line they're able to stop the run through able to put pressure on the quarterback and that's what really has kept them in a lot of football games and they've gotten good play out of their secondary that could play other linebackers but the defensive line has really really been good for them this year and the offense at times it's been pretty darn good at other times when you look at a night like tonight it was kind of a stalemate on the offense of and but that decline is really what made the difference it really was talking to a friend that was at the game he used the word this is like a deal self defense under Paul versus which it for anyone who's familiar with deal Salinger Paul verse kind Mike Lewis who headed up that defense they play in a very very similar fashion they get up they get after it up front and they then to help neutralize Farmington's offense of a tech coming into the game coming into this week's game of Farmington is scored nearly three enter points on the season so they're scoring they're averaging just under thirty points a game in that now you you even take out the last two weeks before that there week seven they played north Farmington they lost thirty nine last week they lose to Alan sorry they beat Oak Park told the six and then averages even higher and I think that really speaks a two certainly the defensive staff a deal cell sorry who sorry the defense of staff at U. V. but also I think this speaks to UV in the league that they played in sure they've been in the double A. but they played center division teams three of on this past year I think that having that kind of a schedule really is helped UV if they moved along the playoffs now the face an even bigger test next week in the regional final against king will just kind of a a showing whether you have the film and the experience to say Hey that's the next step that's where we need to get to was a program you had a halftime lead I'm Catholic central you were in the game you are a one possession game with deal cell in the fourth quarter you were right there the game first brother rice closer than the final score indicated they're not that far off it is a program got to continue to take steps this is one of those tonight proving Hey what we're doing can work this system in place can work the defense we have can win us football games how do we step forward from here this is a program defining when I think of for Matt Lewis and his staff a U. D. U. the last you the last one a district in two thousand thirteen under Oscar only check in his first season as head coach and that was a surprise you they upset the Oak Park in that game fourteen to thirteen this time it's the it's to me it's a little bit different the dealer says so I keep saying that again the UV defense this entire year has been absolutely phenomenal coming into this coming into tonight's game that allowed a hundred thirteen point and tonight they allow ten I mean they were there along there at about eleven points a game for this entire year going back looking back at past you've the defense's you've gotta go back a long way to see a defense a UV that has been as stout as that that has been and really again kudos to the coaching staff a you've day because they've really emphasize the defensive part of the game and that came up in space for them tonight only the third playoff win for UT jazz what sense two thousand one yep pretty darn impressive listen we're gonna do is we're gonna pause now I just got some points this is the fourth win fourth win because they won the he won two games in two thousand thirteen two games in two thousand nineteen now that's right I guess I eat we didn't have the drive home last week we did not pardon my poor math anyways but still that that goes back again you know the fourth playoff win since two thousand one again a program defining win for you of day and something hopefully Matt Lewis can continue to build off of as he continues to build the program at UT no doubt about that we'll talk about the U. of T. win Riverview Gaber shard action tonight and several Catholic League games being played tomorrow afternoon we get into all of that when we get back here on the drive home the student broadcast foundation.

"Salt water we have a better map of Mars than we do of the oceans that stay in virtually every living thing on earth sure ocean exploration is expensive and complicated but so was space exploration and we do plenty of that and there was a time though during the early years of space exploration the aquanauts were pushing the limits of how deep humans could dive under the ocean and how long they can stay down there the lab a program launched by the US navy in nineteen sixty four was intended to figure out how to send divers down into the freezing high pressure environments of the deep sea for longer periods of time than anyone had ever thought possible into the program was a big success then tell it wasn't anymore it's always challenging to get a human body free swimming in any great depth the reason being that our bodies are not made to withstand millions of gallons of water being piled on top divers have to breathe pressurized air which contains inert gases nitrogen maintain the dissolved into the bloodstream and tissues which works out great so long as the weight of the entire ocean gypsum compressed if a doctor wants to come up to the surface they must do it slowly in order to avoid the gases making little bubbles in their blood migrating to their joints and causing decompression sickness sometimes called the bands which is unspeakably painful and sometimes fatal in the early nineteen sixties in maybe physician named George bond figured out how to let people explore the ocean in a new way for technique called saturation diving in his laboratory experiments bond able saturate the blood with inert gases like helium in such a way that divers could not only go deep they could stay down indefinitely so long as they have the right set up and a shelter divers could become acclimated to habitat two hundred feet sixty meters below the surface and free dive even deeper from there we spoke with Ben how are the author of sealab America's forgotten quest to live and work on the ocean floor she described it this way Dr bonds breakthroughs were a little bit like the diving equivalent of breaking the sound barrier was a quantum leap in technology over what the diving parameters have been for more than a century the lab one at the first iteration of the sea lab experiment was housed in a steel tube fifty seven feet long that's about seventeen meters that was lowered under the ocean floor off the coast of Bermuda in July of nineteen sixty four at a depth of a hundred and ninety two feet that's about fifty nine years four men successfully states emerged in this pot for eleven days an experiment went so well that sea lab two was submerged off the coast of California at a depth of two hundred and five feet at sixty two meters in August the next year the lead to have hot showers a refrigerator and adult the names Tuffy trains to deliver supplies and rescue aquanauts if necessary after a thirty day stay in sealab two aqua not an astronaut Scott carpenter spoke to president Lyndon Johnson from his helium atmosphere decompression chamber sounding like a cartoon chipmunk he might have sounded ridiculous but history was made he is survived a month at a pressure of one hundred and three PSI which is seven times that of earth's atmosphere President Johnson told carpenter I want you to know that the nation is very proud of you only a few years later the fatal accident on sealab three which was situated on the sea floor off the coast of California at a depth of six hundred feet that's a hundred and eighty three meters which at the program down how sad most people involved where where that this was a dangerous operation they always knew it had been the lead one to lead to have gone well with no major injuries after the tragedy on sealab three they all expected to press on but the navy didn't see it that way the program was cancelled it was still low profile enough program that there wasn't national uproar about giving up the race to the bottom of the ocean that you would expect if they tried to cancel the space program two years earlier after the Apollo one launch pad fire that killed three astronauts everyone expected the program to go on but for various reasons it didn't we still use the technical breakthroughs George bond pioneered sealab program mostly in the oil industry setting up oil platforms federation divers can go to a job site hundreds of people of the surface and stay down there for an entire eight hour shift it's a dangerous job but it can pay around fourteen hundred dollars a day most of us have the saturation divers to thank for the fuel in our gas tanks but George bonds vision was not just industrial was military and civilian in scientific he solved the problem of going deeper and staying longer but after sea lab was cancelled it turned out the industry is where the money was any military application equipping military submarines really saturation divers as spies during the Cold War for instance would be highly classified and therefore are hard to document but there is one place on earth where sealab type facility still exists for scientific research the Aquarius reef base south of the Florida Keys and it's been in operation for over twenty years scientists can go down there sixty feet at eighteen meters below the surface and live anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks running experiments on the reef how ARE said Dr Barnes vision was science related he thought we ought to have the lab like bases set up in the ocean where ever there might be something of interest to study and observe we should get to know that environment better because there's value to spending time in the ocean just like there was value in Jane Goodall's being able to sit and observe in the jungle once you're down there and can.

"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.

"States as well now we're really gonna get tough now we're gonna further on people not so you get this further violence that upholds the whole governing order so the middle class tends to like that actually and they vote for it it's it's a very big but when are everywhere it's offered because it often protects the middle class the violence spirals but not in their neighborhoods they they are protected and so what you tend to need as a social movement and in the book I tell the story the civil rights movement but a social movement that convinces the middle class voters that actually this tough on crime policies aren't the way to go that what they need is a more inclusive state they need to break this savage governing order so you have this vicious cycle that you just described and you're saying that to get out of this you have to have a catalyst a movement or some form of political leadership or maybe even groups of middle class people who have who've combined in it and I've started the beginnings of a virtuous cycle the abilities to actually fight back because they no longer believe that this tough on crime policy is serving them so it seems like there's a step of education that needs to be or maybe it's just something that they feel is this or it depends on which country you're in which society you're looking at definitely what is losing mobilization but I don't think it's quite the same as education people can be quite educated and not mobilized on they can feel powerless they can feel that they don't have a kind of hung around which together to take social organizer's to really bring people together in the book is both a pay on the great man theory and and and antidote to it because it says you need a good politician and and there's this chapter that I didn't expect to write when I wrote the book about how much you need good politicians and how they how important they are and how awful they are and how you need these kind of not vertically nice not people in one of my dinner party kind of slimy deal making politicians to do their jobs and we need to respect them more but we also need the social organizer's because the social organizer's get people together mobilize them show them that their true interests lie in a more inclusive state and then a politician has to take power because if you just have the movement and no politician if you too poor to work with a politician you're not going anywhere and in the book I tell the story of the civil rights movement and Johnson because we tend to think about this especially those of us who live through it we think all President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act what a great guy if you look at President Johnson he was against every single civil rights bill as as as a senator from Texas he fought Harry Truman when Harry Truman desegregated the military he voted against making lynching of crime this was not a great hope but you know it's not who you would think of its like partnering with US center Kyle or something you know for a lift left wing because but in office he changed his mind probably for self interested reasons for various reasons and became the hope of this it's easy to say oh great you know he changes starts but think about what that's like if you the Social organizers you have to lead your people into making a deal with someone who not only was so tainted but he was still prosecuting the Vietnam War you know something about if you're leading the occupy movement or black lives matter and you have to make a deal with something something not compromised and yet that's what has to happen and and you go further in the book because you suggest that not only do those who are the mobilizing of social forces need to figure out a way to compromise with a more malleable politician but that politician has to be able to deal with some of the most some of the ugliest forces within that society and be able to make what you call dirty deals that's right this is the chapter that I was most uncomfortable about actually talked with all of my anti corruption friends about you know how do I raced after because what the research was leading to was of a finding that I didn't like at all which was that these states aren't week to begin with but they've been deliberately weekend but once they're deliberately we can they don't have a lot of capacity to fight the cops are completely riddled with ties to organized crime they're not going to go after the problematic you know that the U. S. in Colombia was feeding intelligence to the Colombian government and every time they said you know go raid this entity that entity was tipped off ahead of time right so you just can't fight because the state is so broken so the first thing is politicians have to do is make what I call dirty deals decided that my my salary is paid for by the British government if it is their agency there are quite by law to give half of all of their aid the fragile and conflict affected states and so they want to know how to do it better and they call these things if the bargains and that is what they are I call them dirty deals because what they basically are saying okay you put down your weapons and you'll get a cut of the state you'll get some level of corruption and some level of impunity and I didn't like that finding but I found it in every case the other side of that though is that they don't last so they Herald what I call a false PC you need to make some but if you let them faster he basically further break your state you further corrupt your state you lose my more and more legitimacy so you have to make them while the state is weak within you immediately have to start building up state strength and regaining the trust of your people and that's a very tough stance I found in India one of the politicians and teach Kumar did that as one person but often it was different levels of politicians who have a president to repay making dirty deals with the paramilitaries in Colombia he's not making a more inclusive state it's the mayors who are making a more inclusive state at their at their may oral level and to gather it that do works so as you look at this because this is you know just by talking about the difference between the centralized state verses the mayor all the local regional state level or if in the federal system and more state level did you find that there is a greater ability to act on the local level or on the state level rather than at the nation state level it differed in different states so in the U. S. South it took the federal government to finally forced through in the nineteen sixties some level of of peace to that society and enforce the rules until then that'd been basically a one party state held together by violence among the whole region in Colombia it was the city level that was able to make headway against the federal government it really it depends what portion of government has been making these deals and then what part of government has not been making the same kind of deals we've been hearing from Rachel Kleinfeld of the Carnegie endowment for international peace and author of the new book a savage order after the break join us for the second half of our conversation.

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.

"Files that the National Reconnaissance office had made available on its website back in two thousand fifteen and what these documents show was, was really remarkable, because it was right in funny. The documentary evidence that the that the F O's and the NRO continued the manned orbiting lab Archie program that the public believed had been cancelled money sixty mine, but president Johnson, the program was launched in ninety sixty three and it was based. It was basically going to be putting these modules up in space using the play rockets and these modules would be used the space surveillance and. They would be manned orbiting laboratories, and these would be space stations, but he ninety sixty nine it was canceled. But what, what the public didn't learn was that? They only cancel the mand program that he cancelled the unmanned program in the unmanned Tigra continued the next decade. And they continue to send these modules that have been designed full astronauts, to pilot together we and to use his vice that was sitting as mulches up in space throughout the Mining's. Seventies on these titan rockets out of Vandenberg Air Force base, and assembling different configurations of space stations up. And, and so you having the documents some of the designs of the configurations that they had you had like configurations that would have forty. Ezra moats up there and. All of this was to my mind evidence that they had secretly constructed a sick ULA space station, very similar to the bum Braun space station that venom Brin had a foot proposed ninety forty six and, and he was one of the people that was actually involved in this programme when he left mess up. He went and work with this company called Fitch all industries, and FA chilled industries. They were one of the contractors full this continued. Amanda living laboratory program that was secretly continuing because they space stations up. And so that answers, the question raised by President Reagan President, Reagan's comment ninety ninety five when he said that he had launched with five. Nessa esther. Renaults five messes scientists, and they told him that we have the capacity now to play three hundred Estra notes all and ninety five. I'm in the space shuttle had just launched a few years earlier. But they're only five spy shuttles, and they could hold a maximum of ten estimates fifty that he said he must have been something else up up that during that time and through these declassified in our documents. Now we know what it was. It was a secret space station. And now I think they have more more than one of these up there. It's an amazing of form of technology. How far advanced are they today? Several decades, head of what we need kind of a world know about, we don't know about fee energy technologies open in any field physics. We assigned to get a hint of these through some of these documents that were released by the by the aid program. Some of these documents have been sick letting for a while. And, and so this is the concern things like walk drive and using other kind of exotic technologies. So they the F oil and other programs trying to get the public up the speed and trying to get the scientific community. The they mind to these more advanced technologies that exist. But I think ultimately, it's gonna come. Down to space for the mechanism full of these becoming public east of the Rockies. Let's go to Margo in Portland, Maine. Hi, margo. Good morning. The. Character in Dr Strangelove played by George C Scott and the character played by Burt Lancaster in the movie seven days in may. Those were both based on Curtis LeMay. Curtis lemay. It was general Curtis LeMay, who was around that table with president Kennedy and the other some of the other military people, and he's the one who spoke the proposal to take an airplane painted up in disguise, it like a Cuban airplane and shoot down an American passenger plane with it. Oh, jeez. Kennedy just said one thing. We won't be doing that. That's smart on his phone. Meeting that he really had with military people in any way after that it was just him. And Robert handling the Cuban missile crisis directly with her show. Interesting. Take what do you think of that?.

"But first off, we need general staff. For give us a brief synopsis of how this whole program started and what the strategies were used to make sure funded respondent general. Or you can hear me. All right. Good. Well, thank all the people here Snoopy award winners. And also, the Scholtz family, we're what the Charles Schultz, did Snoopy and the we name them back that was one of the chosen aim Snoopy. And Cernan said Yeltsin, we'll go down snoop around, but then actually Snoopy we had to have the name of the other spacecraft. So CHAI brow was natural. But let me take you back to how everything started. Why did we have Apollo? The. Lou president. We had their nineteen sixty election Kennedy, you know, wanted to do and Ford looking things. But it goes back before that Sputnik. And Senate majority leader Lyndon Johnson from Texas, and one of the Soviets orbited Sputnik. He really came on hard on Eisenhower Nixon's vice president, as we let the Soviets get way ahead of us. And so there's a big push in science and technology throughout the United States, universities to really get with a science and also started a ballistic missile race. And the air force general shreve ever had in our efforts. John, he's like Sergei core law was to the Soviet Union, but. So flings were up and running, but also president Johnson. The majority leader put through a Bill calling for a national space council could be activated and deactivated by the president and the vice president would be the chairman. Well, Eisenhower for some reason, thought it would jeopardizes position so he never activated Lyndon. Johnson was a real push recap going push you, then he was vice president after the election. And the first thing president Kennedy did was to activate the national space council with Lyndon Johnson as a head of it. And it was like fast, moving freight train down track with Johnson believe. Believe. So the next occurred was, when your, your gearing on April twelfth nineteen sixty one did one orbit around him and Johnson and Kennedy saw the great accolades to the world through the Soviet Union. And you gear. Then falling out on may the fifth. Alan shepherd do little sub orbital flight on a Rudge stone, mercury combination. He went two hundred fifteen miles down range of one hundred miles an hour, too. So right, free days after that, president Kennedy went through lies president Johnson. Mr Vice president, I wanted to answer in two and two and a half weeks. What this country can do that will put us a head of the Soviet very meaningful show, accomplishments. This nation leaves the world said technically economically and challenges in Johnston was no shrinking violet. He said, Yes, Mr President, L do that. You put together committee, the rat Robert Gill roofs forced director of the center. Varner, vodka brought a director at Marshall absorb Stein from the director James max Visu, who designed mercury Gemini Apollo and space show this group and so two and a half weeks. Linda, Josh and came back to president Kennedy said, Mr President. It's like there's three types of what we return them or what there is no way. We can beat the Soviet Union free return trajectory around, other words, a highly elliptical, orbit go around and moon and come back with a very little. And then they say the Soviet Union has been to the moon. Flu around the average person France or Japan. They would know that there was the Soviets have been too. There's no way we can be. And that's exactly what the Soviet started to do with there's on program. It was a site us without the orbital ball on the front on top of approach on rock. Number two, we think there's only a fifty fifty chance that we can equal them are maybe beat them on orbiting them. But number three. If we go and land on the move and return to the earth that will definitely be a head of the Soviet Union. It'll be bigger more expensive. Put us way, I had. And right away. Good thought for a couple of minutes, and we'll do that now that took courage because the launch success, all the Cape was about porty percent, which we had about sixty percent failure goose. So the next will also he was very smart, politically that evening. He called it the leaders. Congress like Sam Rayburn. The speaker of the house, Albert, Thomas speaker, appropriations who happened to be Houston. Carl Albert whip from Oklahoma Serta car appropriations from Oklahoma. He called into kingmakers, so the scheduler greased with those leaders, and then the next day he had the joint session the congress, then told the congress before this decade is out. We will land a man on the moon and safely return. So that is what started Apollo. So we had to go. The next question is, how do we know that became a big fight between Johnson's by the manned space Flight Center and Marshall, the doctor yell Ruth wine was giant booster all seen the southern five five-year Wade's six and a quarter billion pounds fully loaded, but this thing would be about fourteen million pounds. He'd go and drop off stages land direct, and I don't know how it'd be so big how people would get out. Maybe repelled. We'll have somehow there and then take off dropping stages. Come back. I brought had a different idea. He wanted to take to boost, there's probably one and a half the size of Saturn. Five launch one wash the second rendezvous and orbit, even though nobody had done her onto, and then leave again, dropping off stages land direct, and come back, dropping all stages direct. There was a top engineer from Langley research center named John Hubel and his team. They said no way to go is go do a lunar orbit rendezvous. And he kept writing papers. Fortunately, the deputy administrator of NASA, Dr Robert seamans who've been the former dean 'aeronautics and astronautics MIT very technical man, and he understood it. This is the way to go. It'd be faster that it'd be less gos-. It'd be safer. You do it quicker. So anyway, it was finally fourteen months after president Kennedy said go in July nineteen sixty two. It was cited announce to the world the way that we will go to the move is using a lunar orbit Rondo. And so from that. That was a decision. I was very fortunate. I joined in a second group of astronauts came on board about two months after that. And so we had decided we need to train, we need to demonstrate this. So how do we demonstrate so that we started the Gemini program after the ball? So the biggest booster we had was the titan tube. Worcester ice is an intercontinental ballistic missile had the Mark six nine megaton warheads. I don't know of any of us. No. What nine megatons is nine million times TNT, or if you put it in pounds, I remember nine to buy does nine times to six two thousand pounds to time. So two-time soon, the third motor plod out, it had a war headed at eighteen billion pounds of TNT, who it was a big warhead. And so we took off the nine megaton warhead and put on an eighteen and a half book eight thousand pounds and Jimmy was a forced spacecraft that could maneuver in orbit could change over mercury could only changes attitude had three little solid rockets mortars impulse retrograded about three hundred twenty seconds and other bring it down. But Jimmy we raise and Laura out or to change planes to some extent do all types of maneuvers? So. We know from history of the Gemini, put us way ahead of the Soviet Union are total secrets, and from that I was very fortunate to be assigned with Wallis Chirac to demonstrate the first Ron space. But during this time a great team was put together who are very fortunate to have. Dr Ron Ron and about two hundred fifty of his German people from plenum Mundi, and he developed a great team there at hustle, here we had Dr yo- routes, and he brought up some great engineers like from all over Chris graft. We had so many people like this show and, you know, to meet that goal was a seventy or eighty hour work fact. Forty hours was a vacation. So we. We started like that. But also one of the keys we run in general Sam Phillips, he was a two star then but he had managed the beef fifty two program and then general shreve or had recruited him. And he was a program management for the minute and missile was are, are made. He put in the ground a thousand and missiles, he started a program, and he was brilliant. He was a fighter pilot World War, Two by thirty eight had dogfights measure Schmidt, went on is one ninety s Muslim eight millimeter flack around him. And he was a veteran but he had a lot of common sense in personality wise, we hit it off pretty good. So I- great working relationship with general folks, I want relate the way he thought he the when you look at a problem, you use common sense. But also, you have to think out of the box in a good example. The minute land silos you were sprinkle around out, feels they were unattended you have a launch control center with Tim silos miles. And, but we had to be sure they were secure boy, and was the prime contract. So they had written up a plan. National security company will on do their security. So they came up with a big book had thing all installed. This was at certified. Well, you know what I'm software. You do IV independent verification, and validation. We'll general Phillips wanted to do an IBM the on the security, those minute man silos. We had a minimum. So what did he do? He go another security agency and other techno. He went to the Federal Bureau of prisons. I want the best Bank robbers you have. And so he got eight convicts. You said he didn't want to win a bike when the farm, he wanted to watch your broken mechanically. So they rounded those people they went out to the silent of guards turn now. Now, I remember this guarantee, nobody can get a General Philip solar than thirty or forty five minutes, those eight convicts were down all over that. Nightside. The umbilical feed grooms to flame Tricia, hopefully, so that's so they pulled him out and fixed all the division. Should I could see then later, he sent him back in this time, I talk about three and a half hours to get down in the minimum man silo they fix though? So I say you think out of the box, and that always left an impression on me in from the for every program was on. I was always thinking how the box and that later, I'll explain lead color TV, but. I kinda used heaven von Raj by while this how you manage programs. So Bernie, and Laura, and Randy, can you briefly reflect on the importance of Apollo ten and how that impacted your lives and how you believe that impacted humanity?

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.

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.

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.

"So they keep tells how great the economy. I mean, it just drives you just like this first quarter. They came out just think about this just six weeks ago. They're telling us. The Atlanta fed six weeks ago came out and said the growth for the first quarter of two thousand nineteen. Would be. About half a percent. Compared to the first quarter of two thousand eighteen at two percent. Guess what they came in today at three point two percent. How could you miss from where? Did you come into the half percent? And now they come surprise three point two percent. How that happens called manipulation of inventory to remember the second quarter of two thousand eighteen when everybody thought GDP is going to be about one and a half percent. And it came in at four point four percent and found out there. Manipulating the inventory soybean inventory. They're taking immature in the future clawing back. So they could get a great number for the second quarter as to what they're doing. Now. This is supposed to be the worst quarter of the year the first quarter. So today consumption, if you go look at the GDP, and you broke down the consumption part, which of the important part. What are people doing spending money? Terrible very weak in the cap tax investment. Terrible. Very weak. All of it came from manipulation. Of inventory. They built up inventory. The more immature you build up. That's what they do. This isn't the first president who's done this member. It was Kennedy. His father here in his administration who came up with the idea of discouraged workers. Remember that now discourage worker that term? That's how they keep our unemployment rate. So low. We have an unemployment rate. More like ten eleven percent. But it's again, the they're telling us it's less than what is it? Now. Three two point seven percent. No, not two points. Three point seven percent. Not how they get down that low because they're using discouraged workers are not counting those people who gave up looking for jobs, if you give up looking for your job, you're not count as unemployed even though you're unemployed. Take president Johnson. He had a gimmick. He created a gimmick which we still have today that high most of the federal deficit when a report you the federal deficit along six hundred billion eight hundred billion that all started with with with with president Johnson. They hide about twenty five percent of the real real number. So everything is manipulated. Numbers. Most manipulated number out of all the numbers, we get if you really believe the government the number. The annual inflation is running at less than two percent. You really believe that you really believe the unemployment is less than four percent. You really believe that our economic growth is three percent. He really believed the federal deficit only one trillion. What are you nuts? That all those numbers are just all again all manipulated. So let's keep putting out numbers. And I could care the place. I go to is the withholding tax number. If you look at the withholding tax number that's number that again, you can depend on everybody has to have withholding tax. If you work that agency is the most reliable. They're saying you real annual inflation rate is eight percent not to unemployment rate is twelve now under four in our GDP growth are saying is flat or not at three percent. So you have the one side of the government would take care of the withholding. And then you've got to be LS guys two guys, which are totally lying. That's why you don't depend on government. We'll be right back.

"We've got Jacob on the line. Yes. Hello this cordy. Good morning. It's a privilege to be on your show. And I wanted to ask you a question about the goal on heights position of President Trump. Sure. So generally speaking most people looking into that decision. The background is the six day war, and what some people that said was a a war of conquest in terms of seizing the Golan Heights. Area and that was an objective. Others say, it was very complicated. There was a lot of things influx at that time. And there was a certain initiative that the Israeli government was taking and amidst all of this was the USS liberty ship about longer than a football field was a huge ship filled with intelligence surveillance electronics. They were there in international waters. They were attacked by the Israeli military, and the attempt was apparently to try to sink the ship and kill all the crew to set it down to the bottom of the Mediterranean. So the crew saved the ship. They had about three dozen Potala hundred seventy one or so severely wounded and the ship was burned with palm. They had rocket strivings all over at torpedo hole and bone side of that everything was bloody. Meat locker were most of the below waterline people were killed, so what the name of the ship that was the USS liberty curb on the eighth of June on the night of June. Moshi Diana and his forces were in the Golan Heights. They waited one day. They wanted to get some say the USS liberty out of the way. So they could not be obstructed in any way militarily when they made their move. I'm going to say. That my understanding of history is a little different. I have never heard of the USS liberty. There is absolutely never been a time when the Israelis fired upon a United States military vessel in recorded history. Although Vince is going to do a quick Google on the USS liberty while we chat and the six day war actually was historically and attack an unprovoked attack by the surrounding Arab nations on Israel, and that attack took place from the Golan Heights, which is a Druze settlement. It was part of Syria at the time. And the Syrians have been have been involved in every single one of the wars and forty eight in in sixty seven in the Kippur war at cetera. And it is you know, again, I'm Vince is gonna look this up, but I have never heard of US military vessel ever being. I mean, he's he's right. We attack the vessel. No. We were attacked by the US. Liberty incident was an attack on a US naval technical research ship by Israeli air force jet. Fighter aircraft and is really navy motorboat pitas on June eighth nineteen sixty seven six day war and the combined combined air and sea attack killed thirty four crew members and ill Israel apologized for. They attack mice of them. And they claimed that the US liberty had been attacked in error after being mistaken for an Egyptian worship, and the US the Israeli government paid the US three point three two million. And that would be the equivalent of about twenty four million in today's. Today's. Dollars. That was the compensation they paid to the for the families of the thirty four men killed. So they claimed that it was an error, and they miss it identified the ship as an Egyptian only imagine that that is true because. There is no closer alliance. But how could that happen? So Jake, thank you. That's why there's the, you know conspiracy theories about it that maybe they were collecting something that the Israelis didn't want them to. It's always between two spies. But I tell you what I will. I'll make some calls and get to the bottom of it. But but thank you for improving my knowledge because I had never heard that story. And your point Jacob ads adds to my concern about whether or not the United States should act any a lateral way. In the in the Middle East conflict. Hello Jacob is still there. And it's quite interesting from presidential actions on the part of president Johnson at that time when there were just a minimal death and wounded at the outset of the attack local commander set rescue jets, president Johnson personally got on the satellite phone talked directly with the ships involved and told them to order they're a rescue jets to return back to their ship. And don't try to help at all the US. Liberty crew that shit. I again, this is a story. I've never heard. And and so I really appreciate the fact that you've raised this question. And I'm going to do my research, and we will talk about it again next week is that fair. Well, it's sort of like a reverse Passover. Instead of getting spared with the bloody sacrifice of those US citizens on board the ship splattered above the doors, if you will of the ship of the eastern Mediterranean, it was actually an entrance to carnage. I I completely understand that. And you know, the love of my life was a career naval officer. And so, you know. I feel I feel for those loss sailors, in a way, you don't know. So. I will I'm going to do my research and understand and see if I can find out more fully how it happened. What's the context of it where it was within the conflict and see if we can? Kind of come to some understanding of how this whole thing happened. I'm not in in no way. Jacob my saying. That I. Believe that that I'm that, you know, that the United States can award the go on heights to Israel without. All of the parties being a part of the discussion does that make sense in in especially in the aftermath of what you're saying? I appreciate your attempts to with perhaps limited information to St. the bigger picture. But there is a bigger picture. And there is a sacrifice put it in the category sort of a reverse Passover on what happened to the US liberty. And it was a just a total abomination. I would say that. That was. Yes. I mean, we we we refer to it as the fog of war. But I think you're absolutely right. It was horrible that it happened. Amazing that president Johnson would border. US military not to inter not to try to save the crew of a US military vessel since we have an ethos. That says we don't leave anyone behind. So I promise I will do my homework and will. Talk this through again next week. How about that? Okay. Thank you so much. Thank you. I appreciate the information. So we've got we're going to run out of time today. So speaking of navy speaking of the navy. I do promise. We'll go figure all this USS liberty out in the context of the war, and we'll come back and give you a brief overview next week, but one of the highpoints of this weekend. Photos will follow was that I met Dan Crenshaw. The the navy seal turned Texas, congressman TV celebrity. Thank you Saturday night. Live. What an incredibly. Brave smart capable man. He is. Really an admirable person who from the time his the his dad was in the oil business. But from the time he was in high school. He knew he wanted to be a navy seal. So after college he went into the navy served. His a seal was hit with an IEP AD in Afghanistan. It took out completely one of his eyes. And there was a time when they thought it would take him both as is he spent a year at Walter Reed recovering. And you know, what he did after that? He went back to Afghantistan he couldn't be in combat anymore. But he went back as an intelligence officer. And then when he retired went to the to the Kennedy School for government got a master's degree in his now serving as the first term congressman, and he somebody we need to watch. He is the classic. You know, he's he's a classic personal responsibility. Small government conservative extremely well-spoken really great sense of humor, really really funny guy. And you know, amazingly, not all that much taller. You know, he's not really tall guy. There's a picture of of he, and I and one of my favorite listeners and we'll posted on rematch in America. And you'll be surprised at at the fact that he's maybe five nine at the most. But I think we need to keep an eye on Dan Crenshaw. I think he is going to be open intended. Right. No, no, no pun intended. Although I have a question though. Did he show you his captain America glass? I know I I I was too chicken. That I would love to see it. But like I said he has a fabulous sense of humor. And so I think we need to keep an eye on him than if I were Ted Cruz. I'd be watching really carefully. So we are going to run out of time. And so I'm going to tell you about another American hero one. I am going to go research this USS liberty story because I've never heard that story. I vaguely remember it. Not that. I was around when I was going to say, you know. And maybe that's when you know when you say president Johnson, I go to now, I'm not sure it was tuned into politics at that point. And and so I will go research that. Gotta take a break. Are we gonna take a break? We're gonna take a break. We have to take another break. We had.

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. The case was born here in Eugene, Oregon, a tree huggers paradise and one of the cradles of environmental activism in the United States. The lead plaintiff university of Oregon student. Kelsey Juliana was only five weeks old winter parents took her to her first rally to protect spotted owls today. 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. This case is everything this is the climate case, we have everything to lose if we don't act on climate change right now my generation and all the generations to come. Okay. She was keen when the lawsuit was filed and the oldest of Twenty-one plaintiffs. They come from ten different states all claim to be affected or threatened by the consequences of climate change. The youngest Levi dre Heim is in sixth grade here eleven years old and you're suing the United States government. That's not what most eleven year olds do, right. He's lived most of his life on the beaches of a barrier island in Florida. That's a mile wide in barely above sea limb. What's your biggest fear about this aisle? I fear that I won't have a home here in the future that the island will be going. Yeah. That the island will be underwater because of change. So you feel like you've got a stake in this. Yes.

"president johnson" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM

"News station is KTAR news ninety two three FM. Welcome back to the Jim Bohannon show, our guest, John Marini, Dr Marini is a professor of political science at the university of Reno and the author of unmasking the administrative state. This is published by encounter books and subtitled the crisis of American politics in the twenty first century. We have a call from K and Saint Cloud Minnesota on the Bohannon show. Good evening and welcome. Yeah. Thanks for taking my call. Talking about which today is that. Yeah. Hey, FBI and all those. Their administration the fourth degree which has power over. No, thank you, the president could still get rid of them. And just because we had a president Johnson. Welfare state. I think they were all on their minds on both sides yet. Congressman to allow this so called administrative in capacity. And if they do I don't think there's too many people that recognize your door even see it as a lot. I can see where they're really pushing the button. But I will. That's why I'm really supporters of Trump and deregulating. But I think at this point he could very well say. FBI your God. You're gone. And I don't think he would get hit a hell of a lot of trouble doing that. Well, he couldn't just dismantle the entire organizations, obviously K, but. To a certain extent, the president could could act in such a way what are the critical things. I think that you point out Dr Marini is the fact that indeed the mechanisms are there to bring the administrative state under control if another way just just bankrolling him. I mean, the the three-letter organizations the FDA's and FCC's SEC's who've ever get annual appropriations it is convenient for many of the elected officials in power to have the administrative state handy. Both. As someone to blame in case things, go wrong, and as a way of generally, avoiding responsibility. No, I agree. And I think the problem with say certainly Trump has or any president has the formal authority as head of the executive branch to do what he wants to do. But he also has to be politically aware of the fact that he has to he has there are mechanisms and the other branches that can also threatened that that power that he has in the most important one. Of course, congress has over the president is the power of each. And the problem with Trump's in tenuous position because it in a certain way, he didn't even have really the support of his own party end up late in a way, he had almost he had the establishment in Washington of both parties opposed to what he was doing. You have to be cognizant of the fact that the form powers of government now are not necessarily going to be useful politically in public opinion, which shaped largely by the the establishment with his the defender of the administrative state is almost wholly in the hands of those who are defenders of the administrative state. So it's very hard to get even popular support for what you're doing president. Because you don't have you don't have in a certain way, you don't have political life in America. An aunt at a dynamic active, political life were differences of opinion can be expressed and debated. You have a certain opinion that is mandated by the elites and establishes. What is even possible to do and talk about? So these are these are great restrictions on democratic political life. Many of the institutions that we once had that weren't political that were part of civil society. Those those those things that the American founders expected that people would actually solve their problems in private association insanely in churches in professional associations that had nothing to do with the political. And now everything is political that is mandated by politics and nothing nothing is immune from political control. I wanna come back and talk some more on that point. But as you call from David in Creston, Iowa. Hello, david. IBM? Thank you for taking my call. Cold here, forty below zero overnight to talk about that relaxed hours. A matter of fact, go right ahead. I hope I'm not boring dead. Anyway. I had a question that I think he'd be your gift list about answered it is the final say so on. We don't have anybody that has the final say. So as far as I know whether soak supposedly the supreme court vital, the final say so on what David on name decision whether corrupt government or where repeat across the crack bureaucracy. All this didn't here this investigation that investigates and so on so forth. It's up to messed up. Y'all supreme court can rule it in in cases of things that it deems to be unconstitutional. But but otherwise, I suppose professor marina, you do point out. The fact that again, not only is there a certain lack of of ultimate responsibility and accountability. But that that's a pretty comfortable thing for a lot of folks. No, I think that that's been the real problem, the political branches have advocated their policy making power. So when you look at say, congress almost every controversial thing in. Political life that occurs. It's very divisive that divides the electorate and congress doesn't want to actually act on that in policy making way. It's simply it's simply delegates that assorted when you delegate your third to the bureaucracy that has no constitutional powers at all. The constitution doesn't give any power to any administrative structure. The only powers of the American government are in the hands of the legislative executive did you this year? But when commerce gives power to the bureaucracy and that power, then is affects citizens in certain ways. What is the remedy that that that people have of course, then they end up having to go to court and the courts Dan has to make policy decisions, which is exactly what the American founders did not want them to do because the least democratic branch. They wanna congress to make those decisions the congress the decisions that are political decisions that our policy making season. And when you do that when congress passes a law. To get support of both parties in large numbers of people throughout the country. People disagree with the law because they have they have a say, and they know that they can change perhaps the laws if they change the represented when you put these things into the hands of specialized bodies, including the court or the supreme court, then of course, you take it out of the political arena.

Why are people afraid to sign up for government programs meant to protect them?

"The December is Casey us season of giving back. What are you grateful for breaking news, award-winning, cultural, coverage, eclectic music, free events, and concerts, and how about truth connection and community a KCRW? It's all possible. Because of you you give because it matters your dollars. Make the biggest impact this month. Thanks to generous challenge grants. So cross us off your list this season with a tax deductible donation at KCRW dot com slash join. In eighteen sixty three in the Gettysburg address. 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. It is time to stop this right now before there are real human consequences. This is Dr Michael Wilks with a second opinion this podcast was made by public radio station. KCRW our status, a nonprofit enables us to make bold and unusual programs. But we need your support to keep it that way donate or become a member at KCRW dot com slash join. And thanks.
