Why Author Mark Shaw Sought the Truth in the JFK Assassination

"For folks who don't know anything about you, how did you get into this? Because anybody who's been alive in our lifetimes know that there's been tremendous controversy and confusion around certainly the death of president Kennedy, the death of Marilyn Monroe, and many people haven't even heard of Dorothy kill gallon. What brought you? What is your background that brought you to investigate these things as you have done over the years? Well, you ask about how I got into all of this and I have no idea in some ways very Quinn. President Kennedy was killed 60 years ago, you know, nearly 60 years ago or a little bit more. You know, I like everybody else. I cried my ears out. I was a Purdue university as a freshman. And yet over the years then, I bought all this material about J. Edgar Hoover saying Oswald alone. Oswald alone all of that and everything else. And then I had a real break with this because I knew Melvin Belli, who represented Jack Ruby, who shot Lee Harvey Oswald. I practiced law with him in San Francisco in the 80s. And when Belle I died, I started to look into his life and times and I found out that I could have a book there. So I wrote Melvin bell I king of the courtroom. And what I found out was the alarming, a couple things. First of all, he was very close with the mafia, one of his main clients was Mickey Cohen, the Los Angeles gangster. You're talking about but more than talking about Bella, are you talking about Marvin belli was close with the mafia? Melvin bell. Melvin Belli. Bella. Yeah. San Francisco attorney, but also he was known as a tort lawyer. He was a personal injury lawyer. How in the world I asked myself, I mean, you're a curious guy. How did he become Jack Ruby's attorney? So I started looking into that and what I found out was that actually he was a hired by those who wanted to silence Jack Ruby for his participation in the killing of Oswald and the JFK assassination.

"Well, that's okay. They're kind of candidate teams. So maybe he's going back to his roots. Back to issues. Do your boys play sports? They do. When I started running for office, I wasn't able to coach anymore, but the oldest one loves flag football. That's the big sport out here. It's not evolved or soccer. It's really flagged football. And being a coach was just the greatest I mean, I would actually get butterflies before the game. But seeing kids work hard, focus, work as a team, that's just the best. All right. Now should you boys who identify as girls, trans girls, be allowed to play girls high school sports? Yes. And I think that it's a strange issue that it takes up so much time on the airwaves that we've spent so much time talking about when the sport. And I think the reason is because if we're talking about women's sports, we're not talking about the offshoring a job. We're not talking about the people who sent jobs overseas or cut taxes for the wealthy by $2 trillion we're not talking about January 6th and the big lie we're focused on something that literally does not impact 98% of Americans day to day living. It is an important issue for the people who play those sports. There's no doubt. And I appreciate everyone's view on it, but I ultimately think that the American people want to know more about what are you people like me doing to help them in their day to day. What are you doing to make sure? I just run it down the issues, but I just want clarity. So you are in support of transsexual girls in high school being able to play girls sports. And dress I assume in girls locker rooms. The locker room is I have to look a little more into. I, to the extent that it's a real problem, we can dive into it. Why do we have to look into that if you're in favor of them playing in the sports? Why not let them into the locker room? I don't know what the current situation is. I don't know everything. I have to look and see where locker rooms are currently allowed. All right. What's the highest marginal rate that Congress should adopt in the tax bracket? Oh, wow. You know, back in the 1950s and 60s, we had a 70 to 90% rate on the top earners. I do think that's too high. I think president Kennedy was right to lower it. I think you're probably looking at a fair top marginal tax rate of around one of the 39.6. But we need to do more to tax billionaires. You're right on the number. It's 39.6, so how high would you set? Those folks don't, but that's the thing is when you go to tax billionaires who get paid on carried interest in other things and capital gains, their tax rate is different. So let's take an ordinary $100 million guy who's making let's take your governor Jared polis. How much should he pay in income taxes after the 39.6? How much of that marginal dollars should they pay? Yes. I mean, I'm fine at 39.6, but I want to make sure that the other stuff that I literally just said, the loopholes that the wealthy use. And governor polls is a pretty wealthy guy. He knows what he what he needs to do in order to pay the taxes that he wants to pay. And so when you're dealing with the ultra wealthy, you have to look at how they get their income and tax that..

"Go for a moonwalk. Knowing Americans were awake and gathered around their televisions, buzz and Neil, opted to make history in prime time. While Americans were watching back on earth and waiting for the dramatic moment to unfold, there was a painfully slow, choreographed dance of dress up going on inside that no one could see. Hidden inside the lunar lander, the men spent an anticlimactic three hours getting dressed in their special gear and revolutionary moon suits. Despite the cramped quarters, the pair was comfortable enough with each other to finally take off their CW gs and change into a different kind of underwear. Liquid cooled long Johns. These weren't too different from long underwear we wear down on earth, but the space versions had some additions to keep the body temperature low while they were working in heavy suits, and an extreme environment. Small tubes were sewn into the fabric, connecting key points all over the body. And inside these tubes, water was constantly cycled around the underwear. The water worked as a conductor to help keep body temperature cool by absorbing body heat. As the water passed through the special device in the suit, it was re cooled before heading back out through the tubes to do it all again. This wasn't the only kind of tube in the suit though. There was also a P tube. Stop and think about it for a second. Whatever your mind conjures up is probably pretty close to the actual thing. It was a practical solution to a real problem. Where does the P go when nature calls? Thanks to this device when an astronaut let loose, the P would travel through the tube into a collection bag. The bag would be removed and simply left in space. Just as before, every ounce of weight was going to count for the return journey, besides no one wanted it back on earth. It was a great design, but unfortunately, buzz encountered a problem. The landing of the lunar module had gone smoothly, but there were unforeseen complications with the latter that they lowered to the desolate moonscape. EarthBound viewers might not have noticed, but on his descent, Neil was surprised to discover that the last rung of the latter was still three feet from the lunar surface. This was unexpected, but it didn't stop him. After a brief pause, he jumped down and soon spoke his famous words about small steps and giant leaps. Those first moments on the moon were an incredible culmination of decades of work, sacrifice, and science. President Kennedy would have been very proud. Not far behind, buzz made his way down the ladder to make a little history of his own. Neil warned him that the last step was a doozy, but but still stretched a bit too far as he put his foot down. Eager to become only the second moonwalker. The stretch resulted in a small tear. Fortunately, the tear was inside the spacesuit and not out because, remember, that's how you get floating space mummies. Unfortunately, it was the urine containment bag that buzz had torn. Buzz had a lot on his mind when nature inevitably came calling. He probably didn't even think about those millions of eyes watching. When he let loose. It's not as if they could have known anyway, the big suit did offer plenty of privacy. So, with the world watching, he secretly peed the first pee on the moon. And that P never made it to his torn urine collection bag. Instead, it wound up floating inside the leg. Of

"By the early 1960s, the Cold War between America and the Soviet Union had blossomed into a global conflict. The two superpowers jousted for geopolitical control and influence, and while the fight played out in a number of venues, much of the struggle hinge on who had the most and best nuclear weapons. Conventional wisdom held that the Soviets were ahead in the arms race. But the truth was that Soviet missiles were in poor shape, and leaders in the USSR were desperate to level the playing field. In the summer of 1962, Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev hatched a plan to place nuclear missiles in Cuba, just 90 miles off the coast of Florida. If the operation was successful, the Soviets would have the ability to fire nuclear warheads at major American cities, an ability khrushchev believed would restore the international balance of power. But secrecy and speed were paramount because if Americans discovered the installation of the missiles before they were operational, American might be able to strike the bases under construction, and perhaps even take the whole of Cuba in an invasion. It was a risky gamble, and when the U.S. caught wind of the Soviets installation of anti aircraft missiles on the island, president Kennedy decided to respond with force, sending a clear message that America wouldn't be bullied. This is episode three, the discovery. Its early October 1962, John Macon is sitting in the cabinet room with The White House, waiting impatiently for president Kennedy. The CIA chief clients has had his watch. He's been here almost half an hour, and from the intelligence he's gathered, Macon is certain that the U.S. is on the brink of an international crisis, but as usual, president Kennedy is nowhere to be found. McConnell sinks into a chair and rubs his eyes. For months, he's been trying to get the president to take action on Cuba. McConnell warned Kennedy that the Soviets were most likely sneaking offensive weapons into Cuba. In what could be the prelude to a larger military buildup. But despite all the warnings, Kennedy rode off Macon as an alarmist Republican, a hawk, clamoring for war. McConnell shakes his head. That characterization isn't fair. He isn't looking to start a fight with the Soviets, his only goal is to keep America safe. Still macomb believes that when there is a threat on the horizon, America shouldn't run from it. But he believes that's exactly what president Kennedy has chosen to do. Kennedy has called off all missions involving spy planes flying over Cuba, worried that they could lead to a deadly confrontation with Cubans firing anti aircraft missiles at American pilots. McConnell pushed back, believing the risks were worth it. Without flying planes over Cuba, there's no way to find out what the Soviets are really up to. But Kennedy has remained obstinate. So McConnell is hoping that in today's meeting, he can finally change the president's mind. But first, Kennedy needs to show off. After what feels like an eternity, the door swings open to the cabin room and Kennedy and several foreign policy advisers, step inside. A cone stands to greet the president as his other advisers take their seats. Mister president, thank you for your time. We have a lot to go through, so I thought we John. Take a seat, relax. You got back from your honeymoon. How was it? Did you two actually step outside of the hotel room? Kennedy's advisers laugh and Macon forces a smile. It wasn't half bad. Except for all the cables I kept receiving about Cuba. You're telling me you're lying in bed with your new bride and you spent your time reading agency memos. Mister president, it's rather serious. It's always a serious incident. Well, go on, John, lay it out. What's happening? Well, thank you, mister president. The situation is we're getting reports that the Soviets have been sneaking men and heavy equipment into Cuba. What kind of heavy equipment are we talking about? We don't know, sir. There's only so much we can glean from our sources. Well, I'm sensing a wind up. What's your pitch? Mister president, we have to resume the U2 flights over Cuba. Sorry, John, that's out of the question. The island's bristling with anti aircraft missiles. We've been over this. We can't take that sort of risk, but we're in the dark, and I'm telling you we need better intelligence. My gut tells me something big is happening. Well, your gut could be growling for a sandwich for all I know, but the decision is final. We're not risking another instant like the bay of pigs. Macon passes. It's time to remind the president of his own public statements. While mister president, after we discovered the anti aircraft missiles, you told the world there was a bright red line. You would meet any Soviet aggression with force. You mobilized 150,000 reserve troops. I take it, that was not an idle threat. No, of course it was not. But we don't know if the Soviets have crossed the line, and we won't know, sir. Unless we keep flying planes over Cuba. Mister president, we're blind. Give us back our sight. Kennedy shakes his head. And feeling backed into a corner Macron isn't sure what to do. By taking this timid approach, Kennedy is putting America at risk. Moscow could be turning Cuba into a fortified military base, a Soviet outpost capable of launching an attack on America. If that's the case, the Cohen believes the U.S. must take action. But it would be foolish to lead any kind of countermeasure without first getting good intelligence. But Kennedy isn't willing to authorize even a basic flyover. Mccone is about to begin another round of arguments. When the Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara steps into the conversation. McNamara says he's also been troubled by the reports coming out of Cuba, and he believes he has a solution. McNamara says the air force could send a pilot on a U2 flight from California to Florida. Pilot could slip into Cuban airspace and snap a few photos. If he got shot down, they'd have plausible deniability, saying it was just a training mission for the pilot, and he made a mistake flying into Cuban air space. It would be a headache for the air force and not the CIA. And that would mitigate much of any kind of international uproar. For a long minute, the room remained silent, as the president considers a plan. And then finally, Kennedy nods. Maccone and McNamara should work out the details, and when they're ready, Kennedy will give the green light. 5 days later, U2 spy plane soars through the clowns, 72,000 feet above the ground. It's a little before 7 30 a.m., and inside the cockpit, U.S. Air Force pilot Richard heiser, Peters through the window. He can see an approaching landmass. It must be Cuba. And while so far, this has been an uneventful 6 hour flight. Soon the mission could grow perilous. Kaiser knows that somewhere down below are anti aircraft missiles, powerful enough to shoot his plane right out of the sky. While heiser doesn't know why he's been sent on this mission, he is aware that America's relationship with Cuba has grown fraught. There must be some important reason heiser was sent on this mission and instructed to shoot photographs of Cuban soil. As heiser enters Cuban airspace, he braces himself. He's got a high powered camera system with advanced lenses, and he can do this quickly. He just needs to get his shot and bang the plane away, getting as far away from Cuba as he can. As heisser approaches land, he begins scanning for what pilots refer to as popcorn. Bursts of white smoke that appear when missiles are fired from the ground. But so far, heiser doesn't see anything. So he flips a few switches and feels a rumble as photography equipment begins buzzing in the belly of the aircraft. A system finishes deploying, and while the automated cameras do their work, heizer keeps the plane

"A break in the conversation, khrushchev goes quiet and lets the interior secretary grow uncomfortable. You'd all begin to squirm. And finally, when the awkward silence has gone on long enough, you don't ask the pressing question. Why did the Soviet premier call this meeting? Udall isn't exactly the kind of cabinet member who meets with heads of state. Khrushchev smiles. Now that he has udall off center, he can get to the real business at hand. Khrushchev says he read Kennedy's rather forceful statement, and he wants to know, was that truly the president? Or was it the influence of Congress? You'd all respond said the president speaks for himself. Kennedy is in charge of military decisions in the U.S.. Cruise ship says he understands, he too based the decision on going to war, and on all military matters, including giving defensive weapons to Cuba. Khrushchev asks, how is that any different from America giving aid to its allies? You'd all doesn't have a ready response, so khrushchev leans in and presses the issue. He says that he doesn't want war. But there are fools in the Soviet Union just as there are fools in America. If America were to attack Cuba, that would potentially set off a dangerous turn of events. Does Kennedy understand this? You'd all clears his throat, clearly nervous. He says that the responsible people in America, men like president Kennedy, always prevail unless intolerable provocations occur. Hearing this, khrushchev steps in even closer to Utah, a stuffs a fat finger in his face. He reminds you all America has the USSR surrounded with military bases, and then makes a threat he hopes Kennedy will soon hear. If the U.S. attacks Cuba, then the Soviets will have no choice but to strike back in kind. Udall fidgets uncomfortably. He says the president has made his position on Cuba clear. A few people in Congress may call for an invasion, but the president makes the policy and the decision to go to war. Khrushchev's golf. It's been a long time since the U.S. could spank the Soviets like a little boy. Now, khrushchev says firmly. The Soviets can S.W.A.T. their ass back. Both countries are equally strong. War would be an insanity. Is Kennedy an insane person? Or does he have a clear head? You'd all doesn't know what to say or how to respond. Frustrated khrushchev decides to move on as udall doesn't seem to be able to give him the answers he needs. He instructs you doll to relay Kennedy the substance of their conversation. But to tell the press the meeting was friendly, and that they discussed hydroelectric dams. You'd all nods, and then as dismissed as khrushchev makes his way back to his office. No closer to understanding Kennedy's thinking. Who is the young president? But the opening moves in this game of chess have

"In my generation, younger people were not as focused on making fortunes, there were no private equity firms when I graduated from college or virtually none. There were no hedge funds or virtually none. And now, more and more people, in my generation, where they were called in public service by president Kennedy and his famous inaugural address and things like that. People wanted to change the war in Vietnam or things like that. Now people when they go to college when they want to do they even want to stay in graduate, they want to go out and start a business. They don't want to go change the world necessarily, they want to start a business, make some money, you know, I think the ideal for a lot of people is to become a billionaire when you're 30 and then do whatever you want with the rest of your life. It's not that easy to do. But I do think that more and more younger people are attracted to business and entrepreneurial activities than was the case 20 or 30 or 40 years ago. You wrote a book, the American experiment, and in it you talk about a number of topics around the American Dream. And one of the things you're highlighting here is this idea of young people still being highly ambitious, wanting to create wealth, wanting to do that within a country that has democratic principles and has a capitalistic society. How do you evaluate the current state of the American Dream? Is it still kind of a shiny and possible as it once was? Do you think it's improved or maybe it's been in decline? The irony is that the American Dream, that's a phrase that was invented in 1936 to kind of describe what happens when very often immigrants but not always immigrants rise up and they kind of overcome modest circumstances and hardships and they become wealthy or successful or famous and as a result of that, they kind of live the dream. You don't hear the French dream, the Mongolian dream, the English dream, though obviously some people in those societies rise up as well. But it's part of our ethos. And this was perpetuated to some extent by the Horatio Alger series of books that kind of talked about young people coming from modest circumstances and working their way up.

And the ones who once were on his side are now finding wrong with the documents. Can we see this lie? Did they ever attack Obama's home or Clinton's? And why not? Because president Trump knows that the swamp are all lies, and he once drowned them. And they're all afraid you will see the truths. Wake up America. See this lie. And we must see this as similar to president Kennedy's files. My Friends, the deceit, will surely die for no man shall turn truths for their ego for their unrighteousness. Because our witness will surely condemn this war. The third World War, yes, it's been turned into a war. But this force this evil force against the American people will be wiped out by the power that once helped George Washington win the revolution for freedom. There is a God. And he the almighty will answer our prayers for this nation to be strong and safe and loving for our future. This is the greatest country.

"The flash, apparently official president Kennedy died at 1 p.m. central standard time. When he was shot on that fateful day in Dallas in 1963, president Kennedy was rushed to Parkland hospital, a local priest was called in to perform last rites for the 5th and final time. This was the one time doctors could not save him. But hospitals had performed miracles on John F. Kennedy throughout his short life. Hospitals perform miracles every single day. But in order to perform those miracles, hospitals need funding. Funding fuels research and discovery, equipment, and beds. That funding is largely dependent on philanthropy. In order to persuade people to donate money, hospitals have to do some very powerful marketing. And creating marketing that cuts through the clutter and helps a hospital stand out in an ocean of charities is a miracle unto itself. You're under the influence.

"Michigan Jerry bassan Dr. Phil knight Jerry what is the state of the state when it comes to food security in Michigan Well we hit some big priorities on the show today You know we talked about food supply and the challenges in the food supply chain that include labor They also include products They also include manufacturing capacity We didn't talk about all the things going on to address those but there are things going on And there are conversations across the board with the state itself but also with manufacturers and grocers and everybody else to try to bring resources to solve those problems There's urgency but we're working on it right We also talked about schools on the challenges they're having what that means for kids and families and some of the innovative things we need to do to work better with schools so that we make sure kids and families never have to go without food again Solvable we can do this but it is going to take work and so we've got some things cut out for us coming up We also talked about just generally the pandemic and people hoping that it's over but it's not And the fact that we've got to get our mindset back to we still have a crisis to manage and we've got to be managing it We can't ignore it We've got to get at it We know we can and we will But I think those were some of the key things we covered in the state of the state of food insecurity that we need to address that we are addressing and we're going to have to keep addressing in the near term and probably in the longer term than we want Thanks Jerry I appreciate you very much my friend Time for a little food for thought Perhaps no president before our sense John F. Kennedy saw the need the opportunity and the necessity associated with hunger President Kennedy said food is strength Food is peace and food is freedom Powerful words by the president that sought to create a worldwide movement against hunger President Kennedy closed its remarks about hunger by saying in 1963 for the first time in the history of the world we do we have the know how to produce enough food to feed every man woman and child in the world We have the ability We have the means and we have the capacity to eliminate hunger from the face of the earth in our lifetime We only need the will Food first is not only changing the conversation about food.

What is morally acceptable today, you're basically going to give everyone a feeling great. I'm not clear I don't think anyone would get a passing grade. In their morality of like you would go back 300 years ago who's getting a passing grade? Basically no one. And we might not get a passing grade from generations that come after us. What does that one get. Success for the Monty Python maybe? I always love about Brian and the quest of the Holy Grail are incredible. Yeah, yeah. That looks serious eyebrows. Version of how important it is facial hair to great leadership. Well, you got a new haircut, is that how does that affect your leadership? I don't know, hopefully not. It doesn't. Yeah, the second is no one. There's no one feeling too. Those are like epic eyebrows. Sure. That's ridiculous. I like this Shakespearean analysis of memes. My brother had a flair for drama as well.

Am I just explaining memes at this point? This is what my life has become. A meme like a scribe that runs around with the kings and just writes down memes. I mean, where was the cheeseburger invented? That's like an epic convention. Like, wow. That was just like a burger. I guess a burger in general is like, then there's like, what is a burger? What's a sandwich? And then you start getting the pizza sandwich and what is the original? It gets into an ontology argument. Yeah, but everybody knows if you order like a burger or cheeseburger or whatever and you're like, you get like tomato and some lattice and onions and whatever and mayor and ketchup and mustard. It's like epic. Yeah, but I'm sure they've had bread and meat separately for a long time and it was kind of a burger on the same plate, but somebody who actually combined them into the same thing. And the bite and hold it makes it convenient. It's a materials problem, like your hands don't get dirty and whatever. Yeah, it's brilliant. Between 1870 and 1900. Well that is not what I would have guessed. What everyone knows if you order a cheeseburger you know what you're getting, you know? It's not like some I wonder what I'll get. Fries are great. I mean, they're the devil, but fries are awesome. And yeah, pizza is incredible. Food innovation doesn't get enough love. Yeah, I guess this is what we're getting at. It's great.

"And finally, we began work on what I believe most spurred the Soviets to negotiate seriously. Rebuilding our military strength. Reconstructing our strategic deterrence and above all, beginning work. On the strategic defense initiative. And yet, at the same time, we set out these foreign policy goals and began working toward them. We pursued another of our major objectives. That of seeking means to lessen tensions with the Soviets and ways to prevent war and keep the peace. Now, this policy is now paying dividends. One sign of this in Iceland was the progress on the issue of arms control. For the first time in a long while, Soviet American negotiations in the area of arms reductions are moving and moving in the right direction. Not just toward arms control, but toward arms reduction. But for all the progress we made on arms reductions, we must remember there were other issues on the table in Iceland, issues that are fundamental. As I mentioned, one such issue is human rights. As president Kennedy once said, and is not peace in the last analysis, basically a matter of human rights..

Starfish Prime: Going Nuclear Over the Pacific

"Nineteen fifty eight to september nineteen sixty one but the soviet union and the united states voluntarily put a moratorium on all nuclear testing president. Kennedy was an advocate of ending nuclear testing as he felt it would halt the proliferation of nuclear weapons. If no one can test them anymore. However on august thirty first nineteen sixty one. The soviet union announced that they were going to unilaterally resume testing in response to this. The united states hastily through together what was called operation. Dominic operation dominic was a series of thirty one nuclear tests conducted in the pacific within operation. Dominic was a subset of eleven high altitude nuclear test. Called operation fishbowl. United states had done high altitude tests before in the nineteen fifties operation. Hard tack one. Head launched weapons as highest seventy six kilometers and they were quite large maxing out. At three point four megatons in operation argus. They detonated nuclear weapons much higher from two hundred to five hundred forty kilometers above the earth. But they were much smaller at only one point seven kilotonnes. These initial high atmosphere test raised as many questions as the answered. The report from the starfish.

Yucca teak orange plus the three argus shots were poorly instrumented and hastily executed despite thorough studies of the meagre data present models of these bursts. Are sketchy and tentative. These models are too uncertain to permit extrapolation to other altitudes and yields with any confidence. Thus there's a strong need not only for better instrumentation but for further tests covering a range of altitudes and yields unquote.

"I have and i'm curious if you guys think that this matters at all anymore is we're going to watch the primaries play out over the fall and spring and the parties are going to choose which candidates they want to run in these in these upcoming midterms. How much does candidate quality matter like getting a good candidate with experience. Who fits the district. Commodore we're gonna be able to tell through the fall and spring. How the parties are faring. I think matters. It's not the thing. But i think the fact that trump is going to be a force in the republican primaries and probably put his thumb on the scale in a way that leads to overall a weaker stable of gop candidates than would otherwise arise. That could cost bekker's problem. So i wanna just challenge assertion. Do you think that trump getting involved in primaries is gonna leave republicans with weaker general auction candidates. Yep yes okay. Fair enough fair again. It's also kind of get back to basics here. Historically is a very robust pattern that the president's party loses ground in the midterms but they're also predicates to that pattern such as the fact that when a party loses the presidency they tend to shift away from the messaging of the now failed president kennedy because it was kind of proven to be stale or unpopular are unsuccessful if the gop is doubling down on a losing message granted message. They didn't lose by that much but still losing message. John kerrigan lose by that much. Democrats did not double down on john. Kerry your hillary clinton after she lost narrowly in twenty sixteen second of arguably violates one of the premises on which is historical. Midterm penalty is built but gop is in a quite literal way rejecting the notion that trump even lost. That might be. Actually i think a decent reason to throw some degree of precedent out the window. So there will be district's for example where it would help republicans to nominate some chamber of commerce republican who doesn't say outlandish things and blah blah blah blah blah and. There will be a more trump aligned candidate in that district who could win with the trump endorsement. Which we've seen can make a difference. So let's say that costs republicans two seats three seats. The some small amount of seeds. I think given everything we know..

David Rice Atchison: President For A Day?

Everything Everywhere Daily

David Rice Atchison: President For A Day?

"Rice was a democratic senator from the state of missouri. He served in the senate for twelve years from eighteen. Forty three to eighteen fifty five. He had a reputation for being extremely pro. Slavery he owned. Slaves supported all of the slave state issues in the run up to the civil war and when the war finally commenced he served in the confederate army as a brigadier general commanding missouri troops. So he's not the finest of people to sit in the upper chamber of congress. Quite frankly if it wasn't for the events that i'll be discussing this episode david. Rice atchison would probably be mostly forgotten to history i. I came across his name years ago and children's book of fun facts which said that he was the president of the united states for one day. This fact has been repeated on and off for over one hundred and fifty years in fact the words president of the united states for one day are on his tombstone in missouri as sort of a testament to his greatest achievement. So is this true. Was david rice. Atchison really the president of the united states for a single day to answer the question. We need to understand exactly what happened in the election of eighteen. Forty eight week party. Candidate zachary taylor comfortably. Defeated democrat lewis. Cass and free soil candidate. Martin van buren incoming president. James polka made a pledge to seek a single term in office and he honored that pledge by not. Running taylor was a career military man who had never expressed any political opinions prior to the election. And in fact he had never voted. He had a great deal of success as a general during the mexican american war which led to his popularity in calls for him to run for president. He wasn't fact recruited by both the whigs and the democrats. The two major political parties at the time to seek office prior to the passage of the twentieth amendment to the constitution the president and all members of congress would take office at noon on march fourth. This lengthy lame duck period made more sense when everyone had to travel by horseback. And that's why was eventually changed. Nonetheless march fourth was the date everyone took office in eighteen forty nine march fourth landed on a sunday. Zachary taylor being a devout man. Didn't want to have his inauguration ceremony. Take place on the sabbath so he postponed one day until monday. March fifth is vice. President millard fillmore also delayed his oath of office until march fifth according to the law at the time which was the presidential succession act of seventeen ninety to the next person in line to the presidency after the vice president was the president pro. Temporary of the united states senate. The vice president is technically the president of the senate. The president pro temporary is the person who presides over the senate when the vice president is not present. The president temporary was david rice. Atchison at the time the position was actually a competitive election today. The president pro temporary is just the senior ranking member of the majority party in the senate. So the argument is that because neither zachary taylor nor millard fillmore didn't take the oath of office on march fourth and waited until march fifth that they weren't president from noon on march fourth until noon on march fifth. That means that the next in line would have been the president pro. Temporary of the senate david rice. So is this true and does this argument. Hold water. The answer is pretty clear in the answer is no and there are a whole bunch of reasons. Why this is the case. I while the constitution does stipulate that the president and the vice president must take the oath of office it only says quote before he enters upon the execution of his office unquote. This is legal hair-splitting but it means before president can do anything presidential e- sign a law. Appoint officials signed a treaty etc. They must i take the oath of office however they can still be the president before taking the oath to illustrate the point. President kennedy was shot at twelve thirty pm on november. Twenty second nineteen sixty three. He was declared dead at one thirty three. Pm and lyndon johnson took the oath of office on air force one at two thirty eight pm. The moment president kennedy was dead. Or at least claire dead. Lyndon johnson became the president in the same way that someone becomes a king the moment the old king dead even if they haven't been coronated. The oath of office is just a way to legally unlock the powers of the presidency after becoming president. As i said this is legal hair-splitting and for all practical purposes it doesn't really matter but for the twenty four hour period before the oath of office zachary. Taylor was the president. If there was an emergency you could have quickly taken the oath of office in private and without a public ceremony and dealt with the crisis as president. The second argument as to why atkinson was never president is that he never took the oath of office. Either if taylor is in president. Because he didn't take the oath of office than atkinson also can't be president by the same logic. The third argument is that he officially wasn't the president pro. Tempore e of the senate. He was the president pro temporary during the previous session of congress. His term expired on march fourth at noon. Just like the presidential term. Did he needed to be reelected again. On march fifth which he was moreover. This wasn't the first time that this had happened in eighteen. Twenty one james monroe delay taking the oath by a day for the exact same reason yet known assumes that someone else was president for a day at johnson himself never claimed to be president at the time. No one seriously thought he was the president. And there's nothing in the congressional record to indicate that he was there are no constitutional scholars presidential historians or even atkinson's owned biographer. Who thinks that he was actually president at best. If you applied a very strict rule to the taking of the oath to become president then you could maybe say that there was a one day interregnum where there was no president but it doesn't follow that atkinson was president.

Biden signs executive orders addressing the economy

"Biden has turned to executive orders in his first days of office says he looks to address the economic crisis brought on by the pandemic. He's also pursuing a massive coronavirus aid bill Can Walsh White House and political analyst for U. S. News and World Report joined w. T. O. P S John Aaron to break down Biden's first few days in office and some of the past presidents he resembles well particular FDR going back a long way to 1933 when he first became president. He had a huge depression to deal with the worst economic calamity we've ever had, and his philosophy was similar to what Biden seems to be doing action action action. The country wanted the president to do something to act boldly. And you seeing that with President Biden again today with executive orders. They're going to continue indefinitely pushing this $1.9 trillion stimulus bill moving to try many different things to get the economy corrected, but mostly to get the coronavirus under control and to get the vaccines out. That's his first priority right now. And probably should be given how difficult that issue is for people to deal with very quickly on Lyndon Johnson. Of course, he took over after President Kennedy was assassinated. He also wanted to show action himself, particularly in areas of diversity and racial justice with writing is also doing so. I would say those two presidents come to mind and you see a lot of echoes in what Biden is doing when you compare them to Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson. The president, of course pitches himself is a compromise or experienced in the Senate. But we're hearing that some Republicans say there's no way they're gonna go for some of the elements and at one point trillion $1.9 trillion.8 bills. So where does this go? I think the thing we have to remember here, of course, is that this is vital opening bid in his attempt to get a lot of this legislation through. He's been around a long time. 36 years in the Senate years as vice president, he is known as a guy who knows how the Congress works. And so I think we have to realize that this is his the start of the neck. Negotiations started the deal making there are not good signs from the Republicans that they'll go along with him. There's a lot of pushback of the same time he's getting the sense from the left on his in his party to push further in government activism, and so on, So it is a difficult line. He's walking here, but I think That there's the potential particularly initially here that he will come to some kind of a compromise. It'll be difficult, but what he's got out there now is sort of the whistle ist. I think when he gets to the real bargaining, I think he's gonna have to borrow back off from a lot of that. But I think it's possible

"Net with Dr Gallo Well in Hobson licensed psychologists in Norman for over 40 years, and we're talking about the psychology of compromise. And as I was thinking of, how do you get people to listen or work together? I thought of two people sitting side by side in a rowboat. And if they don't listen to one another. If they don't work together, they're just going to go around in circles. Perfect example. Perfect because it is so true. You know, there's there's such a thing is that positive compromise? There's negative compromises, too, but a positive compromises and attained. When when an agreement is reached that, um turns out to be in the best interest of everyone involved. So you can think of a million examples of that with teenagers. When we're raising our kids. We compromise all the time. Because if you got too rigid, they didn't work very well. So you said Oh, you have to be in by 10 and they said 12, and you ended up in 11. You know, you compromise you found something that would work for everyone and heaven a net game. S O compromise. What we know it does. It brings peace. And if if, if neither person is willing to compromise, you have no hope of peace. And that's kind of where we've been going in. We've had a nation. To get out to the bigger picture. We've had a nation when we're so little compromise. There's been non compromised, which is very dangerous. That's what we've been living through that polarization. You're right. Oh, yeah. So of course, you know, we don't want to compromise on our basic values or integrity. We all that's a weakness. We all wanna hold too. What? What We find whatever we whatever it is to you What your basic values and integrity. You see that as that's good to hold to that, But it's a sign of weakness. If you are so rigid about that. That you can't reach across and find a way to Find some harmony and in some Some really sometimes even have to make a little bit of a sacrifice. Not awake this, But if it's equal sacrifice people are okay. Yeah, that becomes a greater strength. Stand yes toward to the hole, and that's really what we want to build is a mess, but everyone wanna Always used that term float all boats. We want all boats to rise. Yes, you know, not leave behind those that that for whatever reason, they just didn't get what another person got. And I have to take a second. At this point. I won't take long, but it had to personalize a little bit about what a A child of a good government is. Because I think that's what I am. And I think that's what my siblings are. We really came we we achieved because of good government. You know, For one thing, we were all started early being interesting politics. I remember very young working for President Kennedy but mainly Coming from a family that had some problems had some times when you broke hungry, so they were commodity foods that at that time, it was embarrassing to take, but we wait Became not hungry based on a government that provided some of that. And when I couldn't tell you, I went all the way from undergraduate freshman year through PhD. Literally and in the end paid back $5000. Wow, that was paying my home. I went my own way all the way through. That's incredible. Yeah, And that's because the government stepped in with loans and work, study and scholarships, and I can work my way through. 12 13 years of of college to a PhD and Yes. Because the government was there. And my Sibley's siblings all got master's degrees the same way. What a great investment too. Yeah, and we all get we've I hope I think we've all given back. We've been contributors and not, you know, not the other way around. And that's what what good government does and what we do for people. You You remember that commercial on television? Remember it so clearly. And it talked about a child's mind is a terrible thing to waste. Yes. And that's really what we've got to get back to. You is finding a way that no matter what your democratic Democrat Republican or or whatever you are, um, that we all pulled the same way. Like you said with the rowboat. Yes, well, you know, I hate that we are so deep, polarizing. As a nation in you know, I guess that's how you get your followers to win. So how do you How do you convince people? It's better to compromise Is that the psychology of it? Yeah, well, I think a lot of it is your willingness to have this show. You know, I'm so impressed. You said back. And when March was in March, when all the pandemic you said can we go on for a week every week, and can we have 30 minutes And then can we do an hour every week, and that's because you saw the The need for mental health information to be out there, and that's why you better learn from this to do. Not that there's the answer that's so important to know. It's not the answer that someone can If you can do that you could just write a book. But there are answers for each of us and each one of us in each of our families and our communities in our world if we'll sit down Listen. And really compromise and maybe make a sacrifice.

Must Read: Stillness Is The Key by Ryan Holiday

"A lot of people here. The title stillness is sticky. And you think that your some sort of you know Buddhist monk that has no emotion that's not really Producing modern things in the world. Maybe a little bit old fashioned. No stillness is a sense of calm intercom that we often experience when we're in the zone. I remember when I was playing basketball competitively when I was younger. There's a sense of stillness. When things are just going right the game almost slows down for you. It's like everything becomes a little bit easier and I'm running up and down the court so it's not like I'm not moving. My body armor not being active. It's an inner stillness. It's a sense of common sense of confidence that you have. You can be an extreme action taker and still possessed stillness. That Ryan talks about now. If you're listening to this podcast you're like you know what Omar I'll have tried to meditate. I try to really habit. Stillness it's just not for me. This book is not about meditation. It goes way beyond that. It's more about how to make an informed decision. Whenever you're not a high stakes game situation. He gives countless examples. The one I remember off the top of my head is President Kennedy making really tough decisions during the Cuban missile crisis and how he exercise inner stillness to make sure he made the right decision and saved a lot of lives. He also gives examples from Steve Jobs and other modern day entrepreneurs so normally at the end of this kind of episode St Episode. Until you read this book because Xyz. I'M GONNA get in front of a renowned. Say The reason why you need to read. This book is because as an entrepreneur. You're constantly making decisions on a daily basis job as the leader of a company and you want to make sure that you're making more right decisions that wrong decisions and we often make wrong decisions when we're flustered when we don't have that peace of mind when we have that anxiety when we have that sense of imbalance we WANNA make sure that we're constant making clear headed decisions with a bigger small because they all have some sort of domino effect in our business. This is the main reason why this book is Worth Reading. Because of that fact alone you make decisions on the daily right always if your state of mind is not in the right place. It's GonNa Affect those decisions now. The second big reason why you need to read this book as an entrepreneur is business is stressful and you need to learn how to manage that. Stress can't get rid of the stress as long as you're in business you're going to have stress. But how do we manage it? How do I make sure it doesn't affect our personal health if we don't take care of our personal health and manage stress? No-one will okay. And if you're in bad shape your businesses in shape. You are the captain of the ship and the ship goes down when you do so understanding how to manage that stress especially in that moment when you're in that stressful moment is important in this book gives you incredible insights but thirdly this book is more about wisdom than actual you know having some sort of zen attitude. How do you become a wise person? Somebody who really has a ritual a routine of really gathering the facts and making the right decisions and make the right judgments about what's going to happen in the future and I feel. This book really covers all three now. I want to tell you this book is a how to guide is not like a common stillness and wisdom for dummies. You know it's not a ABCD now you're wise. No and if it was that way everybody would be wise. Be So simple. It asks you to ask them two questions of yourself to reflect absorb the information. This is not like a book you can zoom through you read. You think you ponder it takes some time to get through a chapter because forces you to think about how does supply in my own life. Am I doing these things? One of my caught in these traps that type of stuff. I found it very helpful to read this book before bed puts me in a great state of mind kind of good a bed with a little bit more wisdom a little bit more communists and I wake up the next morning. Ready to take on and implement the stuff. I just read last night. One of the big takeaways early on his book. Is this idea of having an empty mind and living in the moment The best parallel abyss example. Gibson's book is like when you were child when you were a kid and used to play outside. You didn't think about tomorrow. You didn't think about yesterday. You just thought about that moment. You just enjoyed the moment. You lived that moment whether you're playing tag or playing baseball with your friends or whatever it was when I was a kid I used to love to draw on the color and I remember clearly when I was doing those activities. I was just really interested in seeing that drawing. Come together or coloring in coloring book or that page in the coloring book now I was just enjoying it in the moment and just seeing it all happen. I didn't think about. What did I draw yesterday? I didn't think about what am I gonNA do tomorrow. And that whole worry mind was never there. And he's encouraging US and giving us some techniques to get back to that because that's when you're really living when you're enjoying the present moment a lot of us entrepreneurs we always are looking to the future always looking to what's going to happen next week next month. This quarter rig ahead or goals or targets all that. Kinda stuff right. We can't help but do that. We're we're goal driven and I'm not saying to stop it completely but I'm going to say that don't always do that. Give yourself time to enjoy the moment. The moment that you're in right now building your business for me. The moment right now is recording. This podcast episode. You know I have the privilege of having the ability to get up and do a podcast and have been doing it for six years of growth an audience and it's great to share what I've learned and and Hopefully help other people and most of us. We don't really take the time to think about that and really enjoy every day. Every moment that we're doing our thing in our business building our business making calls writing emails getting on webinars creating sales pages whatever. It is really appreciating that most of us are thinking. When is this going to be done? What's next what's the next thing to do? In my opinion it has to be a balance. You have to think of the things you have to do in the future otherwise. You're not going to get anything done. You HAVE A to do list. But when you're doing the to do's be president at to be president a moment realizing the moment. Hey I'm privileged to be able to start a business. This is not feasible for some people in the world. You'd be able to do this to have the finances to have the time to have the ability to have the opportunities that we don't realize is if you know the English language and I'm assuming you do because you're listening to this podcast you are privy and you are made available to so much knowledge on the Internet books that are published in English or Sony. Books that are not translated in other languages Especially the things that just get published brand new books on a subject and you get that edge. That's a blessing. It's incredible so by doing that by living in the moment you tend to have more gratitude and that's why generally children or more happy okay. Now of course that's not the case for all children but if you look back on your kid you were generally happier because you weren't worrying about the future or dwelling about the past you're like hey things are all right. You know. I'm eating my Peter Murphy Jelly Sandwich and watching some cartoons and You know and you just were happy in the moment and this is a really important point. I know I'm I'm harping on a lot. But because a lot of entrepreneurs were building rebuilding or grow or try and make more money. We're trying to build our revenue and all that kind of stuff is great but we enjoy. The journey happens is at ten twenty thirty years ago by and we say hey the best years of my life I spent doing. What did I enjoy that? I actually appreciate it. Did I recognize that? Those are the prime years of my life. Time flies by okay so let's make sure that we live in that moment.

Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall

"Reagan today a tribute to the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall it's on a site overlooking the location where president Reagan delivered his legendary speech imploring Mister Gorbachev tear down this wall well that was quite a memory anyway we have our Westwood One news correspondent jazz Henry standing by live in Berlin this morning so jazz good morning to you are actually good afternoon to you or early it's about it's about mid day right now and that was nineteen eighty seven the president Reagan made that speech at the Brandenburg gate two years later not necessarily a direct cause and effect a correlation but two years later the walking down we celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of that to your tomorrow so it would that was a big big celebration the whole world celebrated with the with the German people when that happened but you know then they came to review the reality of reuniting east and West Germany and integrating them into the society of Europe so she was very celebratory van what's it like now sh well people are still happy particularly those who were alive at the time they can contrast what East Germany was like at the time and what it's like now but there a lot of people been born since then and some of them living in the eastern parts of Germany I feel that still yet today the economy is not as vibrant in that part of the country job opportunities perhaps educational opportunities don't match what's that exists in the west some people in the government here are admitting that there were some mistakes made when that they actually unified the east was just sort of brought into the western constitution there's some other things that might have been done differently but say it's hard to completely second gas because compared to many countries around the world be Germany has in you know what might seem a long time were short time depending on your view thirty years brought about quite to impress the reunification so are we listen to your montage that you made for us just a couple of minutes ago and at the end the woman was saying that the people in the east still don't feel I guess equal economically you know to the west is did you find that I've talked to some of people living in the eastern part of the country who formerly lived under the the old government and of course they say you know life is better now that we can travel you know we're not so contained and there's not be a network but foreman's that's one has to worry about the Stasi security service keeping an eye on everyone but they said that in the old west and East Germany there was sort of a collective mindset and neighborhood mindset that it was sort of grew from the better aspects of the communist ideal of people helping each other they say when they became in essence taken over by the west that said you know the capitalist system of every person out for themselves doggy dog what was hard to get used to and a lot of people particularly were sort of mid career at that time had a hard time making the jump of the sort that angle Americal has made a force you she's been chancellor here for fourteen years originally an east German but she's really more the exception than the rule in how well easterners have done but there are signs that slowly the economy salaries and such in the east are improving to up Terry T. with the west but that's still not the case chancellor Merkel of course open wide the the doors of Germany to refugees and a lot of them ended up in Berlin and we have young people the young workers coming from all across Europe in into Berlin so what are the company's able to hire them well they they into at both related and many of them into the eastern part of Germany someone in the in the western parts but she needs to Germany because of the period under communism they didn't become as multicultural as West Germany did West Germany brought in the guest workers from Turkey for instance in the nineteen seventies and so in the east there are people who are feeling you know I should be paid more for the work that I do there should be better opportunities and look there these people who don't look like me being brought into our city to be settled yeah they're probably going to compete for the same jobs and that's led to some dissatisfaction three mentioned the the unveiling or the showing of the statue of Ronald Reagan today what other kinds of celebrations are being planned well there's a big party is scheduled for tomorrow evening at the Brandenburg gate course the Brandenburg gate is where president Kennedy spoke in nineteen sixty three or call each bin ein Berliner speech president Reagan as we mentioned in nineteen eighty seven it's been the center of the city sense the eighteen hundreds of sort of ceremonial center so there will be a big concert there now there's some possibility it might be raining so that I could have it have an impact but as you can imagine that since this is Germany there'll be classical music and this is the evening wears on there will be a lot of like trying to dance music but if everyone were looking to see what sort of crowd might come out for that tree even putting the weather aside but I'm guessing it's probably a larger major going to be an older crowd people who remember the it's just the amazement of what happened November ninth nineteen eighty nine so we still have a lot of American troops in Germany and course all around Europe but in in Germany so are they are they showing up for either out in the streets for this I'm not seen any so far interestingly I was at a government events government sponsored event last night and the culture minister of Germany made up points to talk about how appreciative Germany in particular Germans of of her age work for the American support immediately after the wall fell and it came as a surprise to many people what happened afterward it might have been something short of reunification she said she was saying that they could be some sort of confederation or alliance but she said that president George H. W. bush was
