I was a high school dropout. The judge would shine their boots on my backside and Brooklyn prep now close and kicked me to the curb, and I never looked back. But if there was one subject that was my best subject, it was history. I couldn't get enough of it. And that's why these little vignettes your important because we're talking about now impeachment of outgoing President Donald Trump. By a Senate trial the day after or the day of Joe Biden and Senator Harris is being sworn in as the next president and vice president of the United States. Mitch McConnell is hinted at that. Members of the House Democrats have so maybe we'll do it 100 days later, since they've already impeached him in the house for a second time. And they're all grasping because not only do they want to put him on trial before the U. S Senate either a day after or 100 days after, but they also want to go. Pass a second provision as part of that impeachment trial that would strip President Trump Of his ability to run in the future for any federal officers. Well, let's just talk about impeaching someone when they're out of office. Now, who do we look to Two time President Ulysses S. Grant. Right now you go up there. What? 9 96 3 west side near the riverside Drive you see is Muslim. And now you know what he knows that that Z president granted. Hero of the Civil War, right, Great General. But Abou sound a lush and then he became president, and he is a booze hound and a lush, as were most members of his cabinet. Including the hopelessly corrupt secretary of war. William Belknap, who was from of course, New York a very corrupt state even then, but they were all corrupt in the Cabinet. They were being wined, dined and park it line but especially the secretary of war who removed all the union troops from the Black Hills. After gold was discovered there and scared and said his troops screw the Lakota Indians just give them smallpox laced blankets. Because that gold in them hills and weaken, take weaken. Take shorter alone little What do we say Plot Become zillionaires, so he got caught with his hands in the till And, ah, the House of Representatives wanted to take a vote to impeach him. Just like we saw with President Trump yesterday. So what did he do? He beat them to the punch. He submitted his resignation to President Ulysses S Grant minutes before the vote was said to take place, But you know what the House of representatives did, they said Psych. They ended up voting to impeach Belknap Anyway, later in the same day, So then it went right to the full Senate for a trial. He had his defenders. Belknap have to determining that well, Yeah, Okay. I guess you can do this. So, Yeah, I'm gonna fight it the whole way. But, you know, I wonder how the hell can you impeach me in a Senate trial when I'm already out of office, But they said we can't They had 40 witnesses and it took a month of Sundays and they needed 40 votes for conviction, and it was 35 to 25 to acquit him. Even though everybody agreed he was a crook. He stole from the Indians. He gave them smallpox laced blankets. The Lakota is, but he wasn't the worst of the many Cabinet members of the most corrupt administration, maybe in the history of America, and that's saying a lot. President Ulysses S. Grant. So, yes, if you want to use this case in history President Trump even at the point when he becomes citizen Trump Can be charged by the U. S. Senate following on the orders of the House of Representatives to impeach Trump, and they can be a full blown Senate trial. But as to whether they can then pass a caveat to forbid him from running for federal office ever again. That's never been done. And, quite frankly. That would probably not pass muster with the Trump challenge before most of the judges that he appointed to the United States Supreme Court and now you know what is going to be a continuing story Right here on the Curtis Lee was show you talk. We listen. He's.

"Its section rates quote the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race color or previous condition of servitude. Close quote. Not to overstate ulysses role in the amendment, but the presidential election of eighteen sixty eight was largely a referendum on reconstruction. The motto of Ulysses Democratic Opponent, Horatio Seymour was. And I quote this is a white man's country let white men rule. Close quote. Yeah. No beating around the Bush there. And while you list won the election by Commanding Electoral College, Victory of two hundred, fourteen to eighty. He only won the popular vote three million to two point seven. He still would have won the electoral college without black ballots but not the popular vote. That means reconstruction still on a knife's edge. If it's last it will need voting black citizens. I can't stress that last point. Enough. I. Let's not forget that many northern states still deny black Americans enfranchisement. By the eighteen sixty election, only eight northern states had given black men the vote. In other words this amendment is a game changer, not just in the south at across the nation. Second, euless hopes the Fifteenth Amendment will enable black. Americans to protect themselves. Literally, a number of ex confederates have taken to vigilantism or terrorism rather to fight the extension of civil rights to black Americans. We got an example of that in the open to the last episode with the eighteen, sixty six New Orleans massacre. And that was just one instance of many. Some bent on this hate based violence or even organizing. One such group is called the Ku Klux. Klan and yes I'll definitely go into more detail on it in a later episode promise. This organization has worried you list for years he still pissed that his. President. Andrew, Johnson refused to take action against them. Yet for all the good the fifteenth amendment does for Black Men. It fails women. As with the mail based allocation of Electoral College votes in the fourteen th minute women's suffrage is feel the sting of being passed up. Again Susan. B.. Anthony flat out opposes the fifteenth because of this exclusion. Elizabeth, Katie, Stanton, and others immediately start lobbying Congress for women suffrage granting sixteenth amendment. A have to imagine first lady Julia Grant isn't happy either given how vocal she gets about her support of women's suffrage at her White House socials. But Alas. You're still decades away from such an amendment. One last thing the fifteenth, amendment does though. It alters the relationship between the states and federal government. It does. So with it's one sentence long section to. Quote, the Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation. Close quote. See The fourteenth amendment might penalize states for excluding any male citizens from voting but fifteenth straight up takes the question of civil rights out of the hands of estates in gives it to the feds. This trend will continue. Historian James McPherson points this out so well that like biographer Rauscher now I'm going to borrow his analysis as well. Eleven of the first twelve amendments constrain federal power while six of the next seven that is thirteen through nineteen enlargement. Yeah. Let that sink in. We are witnessing a real shift in American. Political. Thought and balance of power. So, at least for now, it looks like reconstruction is working and ulysses is no small part of that. He welcomes black officials like Louisiana. Lieutenant Governor Oscar J done to the. White. House. He means black men as ambassadors, I sending Ebeneezer de Bassett to Haiti and James Milton Turner to Beria. Meanwhile. Hundreds of black men are appointed to various positions in the federal government from customs, collections to clerks and more. Forgive quick interjection. I can't help but think how much Edwin Stanton would have loved to have seen these changes. Sadly, congestive heart failure claimed the life of Lincoln's cantankerous war secretary last year on Christmas Eve eighteen sixty nine just days after the Senate confirmed him to his dream job of supreme. Court. Justice. Rest in Peace Mars You listen also set something of a record as he brings. Jews into the administration. And there's a crucial backstory here. During the Civil Wars Vicksburg campaign, then general grant was frustrated with wartime profiteers buying cotton, thereby indirectly funding the very army shooting at his men. Okay that makes sense. Unfortunately. He bought into the Anti Semitism of the day and blamed Jews for the illegal trade. On December seventeenth eighteenth sixty two he issued general order number eleven which states that quote the Jews as a class violating every regulation of trade established by the Treasury Department and also department orders. Are Hereby expelled from the Department within twenty four hours from the receipt of this order. Close quote. Brought his attention, a surprised and disappointed president. Lincoln sent orders Teela's to revoke the order immediately. In eighteen seventy however now, president grant appoints Jews to dozens of offices including the first ever Jewish territorial governor in Washington. Rabbi. Is it mayor wise says that this territorial governorship quote shows that President Grant has revoked general grants notorious. Order. Number Eleven close quote. You. Appears to be genuinely repentant. Finally. I'll remind you that our youthful general-turned-presidents spoke of wanting to study the treatment of native Americans and do better. Right off the bat you let's get one thing right by getting General Ille- Parker put in his commissioner of Indian, Affairs Now in case you've forgotten who is he was on ulysses staff during the war. He wrote up the surrender at Apple Matic's. He's also a Seneca Satan. That's right. Ellie is a native American, and he's the first one to be in charge of the United States relations with indigenous peoples. With. Elise aid you listen acts what he calls his peace policy. Just as he said, regarding reconstruction during his presidential campaign euless wants peace. Hoping to achieve that with indigenous peoples he establishes a ten civilians strong board of Indian commissioners to provide oversight for the Bureau of Indian Affairs? He then actually listened to their advice. At their recommendation, the president ends the use of political appointees Indian agents. They'll be hiring those who want peace, which often means quakers. To overstate or Mantis the peace policy is far from perfect. Between, being pressed areas of poor soil for farming called reservations and not wanting to lose their way of life native Americans are on board with quote. Unquote civilizing. Meanwhile White Americans are flocking west pushing indigenous peoples, offering central lands and expecting the US army to protect them in the process. With so much more to say here but for I think the third time today, let me just say there's a lot going on at once and we'll circle back to these stories properly in later episodes. For now, let's stick with the grant administration. In eighteen seventy two euless goes. Up. For. Reelection. But. Just like his entire presidency. The election will be rocked by scandal. This one involves vp Schuyler Colfax and a railroad construction company known as Credit Mobilier of America. It seems that for the past five years or so the guys over at credit mobilier been swindling the federal government. They've been overbilling for railroad construction costs on federally funded builds and pocketing the extra cash. But it gets worse. Back in eighteen sixty seven a few congressman got suspicious of the company's inflated costs and tried to launch an investigation. The company's directors couldn't have that. So they bribed at least a dozen congressmen with discounts on stock in the company and the investigation died. Then, speaker of the House Schuyler Colfax was one of the men who accepted the bribes. Now in eighteen seventy, two euless learns about scholars part in the scam in dumps him from the presidential ticket. Good Call Ulysses. Current Speaker of the House James Blaine won't let the scam go that easily. You think one guy losing vp slot is enough. Not. For James. He opens an actual investigation stating quote, a charge of bribery of members is the gravest that can be made in a legislative body. It seems to me that this charged demands prompt thorough and impartial investigation close quote. The credit mobilier fair almost outshines the election of eighteen, seventy two. But you list wins with fifty five percent of the popular vote and a slew of electoral votes after his opponent dies and electors switched their votes. Seriously the electoral college can be so fascinating. Now he has to stay down another four years in the White House. As you list begins his second term in office things don't come down. A financial crisis looms on the horizon. Now most economic crises. The impending downturn has multiple domestic and international causes. All just give the broad strokes. For the last few years, US investors have speculated wildly in the railroad industry. Hello Credit mobilier. And that bubble is ready to burst in addition there were huge property and business losses in the Great Chicago Fire in eighteen seventy one and the Boston fire nineteen seventy-two. Across the pond in Europe the German Empire decided last year to stop minting silver coins which has lowered demand for American silver exports. Then there's a financial crash in Vienna whose ripple effects are felt even in the US. All of these setbacks combine into the perfect financial storm. But something happens in the fall of eighteen seventy three. The takes this from tropical squall to category five hurricane. On September eighteenth eighteen seventy three J KOKIN company declare bankruptcy. The death of this railroad investment firms since Wall Street into a tailspin. Within weeks bank reserves in New York City alone plummet from fifty million to seventeen million. The New York Stock Exchange even closes for ten days. This starts a full blown depression across the country, not a great setup for ulysses second. term, agenda. But the general who didn't give up on the battlefield at Shiloh won't give up now. euless meets with Ohio Senator John Sherman and yes. John is related to William Tecumseh the brothers. Anyway the President Senator worked together to pass the Specie payment resumption act. It sounds fancy, but basically, it takes the US back to having only gold backed paper money, Aka the gold standard and constricts the money supply. It's pretty much the opposite of what a twenty-first-century president might do but the hard money president hopes this bill curb the depression in the long run. Unfortunately, you can't wait and see. His New Treasury Secretary Benjamin Bristow has been cleaning house in his department and he comes across yet another scandal. and. This one will overshadow anything that's happened in the grant administration. Let me tell you the whole story. In. June eighteen seventy four you're listening Benjamin Bristow as secretary of the Treasury. Bins kentucky-born Republican who uses whatever government office he holds promote African American rights including suffrage universal desegregated education. On top of that battle of Shiloh, veteran ben has assigned himself task of cleaning up government corruption. He plans to quote purge the Republican Party of all rogues and satisfy the people that we mean to have honest government. Close quote. Ben Gets to work right away firing incompetent cronies and creating efficiency out of waste and almost immediately, the treasury secretary notices will Har- inconsistencies in whiskey tax collection reports. In October Treasury Department investigators check out what's happening with the tax collectors in Missouri. But everything looks clean. Little to claim. BEN SMELLS A rat..

She was depicted in artwork and sheet music printed of musical compositions that were written in her honor Queen Victoria Australia her a personal letter along the same lines. People wrote and printed sheet music for IDA. Lewis and they depicted her rescue in artwork, some of which visibly resembled the depictions of Grace Darling in another similarity. President Ulysses s grant and Vice President Schuyler Colfax each visited Lewis in eighteen, sixty nine. There's a story about this visit with grant. Grant road out to the lighthouse and then got his feet wet while he was trying to get out of his boat, but said quote. I've come to see idol Louis and to see her I'd get wet up to my armpits if necessary. That is a charming story, but in reality it seems like she met the president while he was in Newport and she was the one who went into Newport to meet him. The city of Newport renamed the Fourth of July eighteen sixty-nine. Item, Lewis Day girls were scarves with his name on them tied in the way she often were her own money was raised by subscription to build her a very fancy and completely impractical rowboat, which was called the rescue. It was made of Mahogany with Velvet Cushions Gilt edges and wrought copper fastenings, The New York Times described it as a quote, beautiful and costly boat, and it was paraded around the streets of Newport before it was presented to her since Lewis also needed a place to. To store this very impractical boat financier, James. Fisk built her a boat house for it. He also gave her a set of gold plated or locks the people of Newport, also gave her various banners and flags and other adornments for the rescue, meanwhile, Louis kept her own much more practical skiff, which was the courageous child of Columbia for her everyday use on July, thirty, first eighteen, sixty nine Louis was on the cover of Harper's weekly with the publication, calling her the heroine of Newport. She was written up in other publications as well, and she was frequently photographed both in studios and around Lime Rock, also in eighteen, sixty nine, the psoriasis society, a professional women's organization made her an honorary member. The lifesaving Benevolent Association also awarded her Silver Medal in recognition for the rescue of the two soldiers apart from Ali's honors and awards.

"Considering how huge yellowstone is both geographically and historically we thought it was fitting split this park into two different episodes. It's first time doing that. But we really want to justice and talk about our experiences with yellowstone so it definitely deserves a two parter it. Yeah it really does because there's so so much here and to really dig into it would be impossible to cram into one episode so it's our first two part park fittingly as as you can tell to Park Lane is just full first full of little twist but it also makes perfect sense to do this with yellowstone so area. You and I have experienced this park differently. We both visited it individually on her own at first and then together this past summer. So there's a a lot to cover and lots of spread out over these episodes. Let's just say that it's miles and miles and miles of information. A lot of my early massive of I mean it's more than two point two million acres That's bigger than the states of Delaware Android island combined and it's also larger than some countries. Yeah yeah that's true. So long story short be sure and fill up the gas tank before trying to tackle yellowstone because like we said there are lots of miles here. And you'RE GONNA WANNA be ready for it. And the only national park larger than this actually are are in Alaska Parks and then in the contiguous who s there's death valley really which is the only one in the lower forty eight states that's larger than yellowstone and and to be quite honest. I'm exhausted just thinking about it. Yeah but let's let's get into it and it's the first part episode of yellowstone so we'll cover more of our individual trips. He'll send for this episode as well for Mine. I was here I with my family. My Dad my brother my sister for a little outdoorsy themed vacation a few years ago and that was definitely life changing to the least one of my kinda formative national park experiences that triggered this obsession. But you're going to have to stay tuned for that because I we need to talk about history. And that's epic explosive. Those of fiery history here. Yes yes it is history so backing up when choppers an adventurous frontiers men. I I explore this region of the ever expanding country. They were met with the landscape. That was beautiful lowering but also terrifying in intimidating and deadly. We're talking like simmering. Pots and steaming streams raging rivers. These explosive geysers sulphur springs and wildlife so contents that makes Jumanji look like a petting zoo. Basically I mean these explorers just no one believed them when they started like documenting it and setting this back east. Everyone just brushed off off right right. I mean literally. It sounds absurd and over the top and like completely made up and so it was assumed that these guys were just lying and had crazy machinations. We're basically writing fantasy novels sending to the government but eventually after enough of these reports came in in the government finally advisor to the fact that surely not every frontiers men has an overactive imagination. They started formalizing these exploratory expeditions to research the area themselves elves in see what all the fuss was about. Yeah it's kind of like the original drastic park when John Hammond brings all the doubtful scientists to the island and no one thinks will actually see dinosaurs but then they actually do and everyone is like stunned. Yeah exactly this place is pretty much drastic national park but instead of Dr Grant Dr Malcolm Dr Sadler earlier it was another Trifecta of Explorers Ferdinand v Hayden. A painter named Thomas Moran and a photographer named William Henry Senator Jackson Yeah. Their findings must have been huge and had some serious impact because it was less than a year later in eighteen. Seventy two that President Ulysses S. grant signed documentation making yellowstone the very first national park encompassing the land. That's primarily in North Western Wyoming with little little bits in Idaho and Montana's well right so huge huge news and the true not only provided impressive inserting documentation but they also argued for protection by pointing out that the area is not suitable for farming or mining. Because you can't mine in hot springs or overtop OPPA Geyser. That's GonNa blow up your barn or something so you might as well protect it right. Yeah I mean the first year at the as a national park there are only about three hundred visitors. It's Increased dramatically once the northern Pacific railroad was completed about a decade later. There were thousands of annual visitors. which is really incredible? Bullfrog eighteen hundreds. I mean they didn't have anything. Yeah I know that is incredible. So even though frontiers men didn't discover this steamy landscape until the mid eighteen hundreds they they definitely were not the first humans to Rome here. Native Americans have undocumented living here as far back as eleven thousand years ago most likely due to the abundance of hunting opportunities internees after the last ice age because yellowstone is after all renowned for populations of Bison and L. in deer among many many other animals so so it makes sense that this was like a hunting Mecca and the early eighteen hundreds some of the first for trappers to visit the region gave it the Nickname Roche Joan. I love it which means rock Yellow River In reference to the yellow sandstone by the river and thus the name yellowstone was born born and in history. It's been as colorful as the geysers basins since. Yeah I know totally because it really does have like this technicolor history. It's so vibrant and so Bright and very up and down good and bad vandals and poachers were big problems. In the the early years here as all these animals are being hunted and trees are being cut down with reckless abandon and the minimum park ranger staff. That was here. I literally did not have the resources to protect such a large section of land. No things really did get out of hand. I mean like literally it was like military for civilians millions and yeah and that's until President Chester. A Arthur embarked on his first presidential visit to the park with a little camping trip. Yes he did the. Although if we're being honest I think it was probably a glancing trip. I can't really imagine any president like camping. Made me do they do. Yeah it's just a Arthur is probably a diva. I mean I'm again assuming I know absolutely nothing about this guy and I think I had forgotten art forgotten. He was ever a president until right. Now which you know. I don't remember anything he did. So this is good. I'm glad but he got to go to yellowstone and his trip here was hugely beneficial because he wound up signing legislation that a lot of a lot more funds for the park which went towards employing troops to protect the Park and control the amount of development that was happening like it was off the chart so they needed to do something something. Yeah we learned all about General Sheridan and troop m of the United States Cavalry while we were in mammoth hot springs area of the park last summer Where a bunch of historic army barracks were and apparently they protect to the park for thirty two years all the way up until nineteen eighteen when they handed over those duties to the recently recently created national? Park Service yes they did because this is all new territory. This is well before the National Park Service was established. It's the first national park in the world so there are just figuring out for themselves salves and obviously taking a guerilla approach to fending off. These tendons only lasted like six months to the year. Maybe not in the turn over like it was No one knew what they were doing it but someone had to start. Yeah and I'm glad that they pioneered that and their sentiments are forever engraved on the iconic Roosevelt arch by the parks north entrance which tubes built and the arch reads for for the benefit and enjoyment of the people and it's something that has gone on to symbolize national parks across the country. Ever since and after this quick break we're going to get into some of yellowstone's stones colorful and famous geographic history..
The policeman who arrested a president
"These days from from Boise to Britain TV. Talking heads and Barstool philosophers have been pondering one of the great mysteries of the US Constitution. Russian can the president of United States actually be indicted arrested handcuffed. The whole deal is. He's hit possible the prevailing answer. Is this nobody. But that's not entirely true. Ropel President Ulysses s grant knows or should I say new in eighteen seventy two while president the grant was arrested at the corner of thirteenth in 'em in the district this was not a high but it was at least theoretically speaking speaking a misdemeanor. The man who led the north to victory in the civil war was busted for speeding on his horse. Grants arrest was confirmed a few years ago by then district police chief Cathy Lanier. The story was told in a remarkable arkell but obviously forgotten article in the September twenty seventh nineteen o eight edition of The Washington Evening Star under the headline Only policeman who ever arrested a president. That policeman was William H West. A black man who had fought in the civil war since his retirement. The story said he has decided to let the public know the true story of the arrest. It begins with grants love of fast horses. General grant was an ardent admirers of a good horse in love. Nothing better then to sit behind a pair of spirited animals the star source said she was a good driver and sometimes let them out to try their metal and that's where grant as president wrote into the law. The police had been receiving complaints of speeding speeding or starregistry after mother and child had been run over and badly injured officer. West was dispatched to investigate as West. Spoke to witnesses another group of speeding horse. Carriages headed toward him including one driven by the president of the United States policeman. West held up his hand for them to stop the story. Said grant was driving a pair of fast steppers in. He had some difficulty in halting them but this he managed to do grant was a bit testy home. Well officer he said what do you want with me. Hello West replied. I want to inform you Mr President that you are violating the law by speeding along this street. Your fast driving sir. Her has set the example for a lot of other gentlemen. The president apologized promised. It wouldn't happen again. Galloped away away but grant could not curb his need for speed the next evening westwards patrolling at the corner the thirteenth and m streets when the president came barreling through again this time speeding so fast that it took him an entire block to stop. When West approached him? Grin was cocky. The Star article said he had a smile smile on his face that made him look like a schoolboy. Who'd been taught by teacher? Grants excuse for speeding was not unlike one. That's the probably being given somewhere right now on America's rose he had no idea he had been going so fast. West was sympathetic. But I I am very sorry Mr President to have to do it. He said for you are the the chief of the nation and I am nothing that a policeman but duty is duty Sir and I will have to place you under your arrest. It's worth pointing out here that standards of journalism especially with quotations were. We're not as rigorous back then as today so it's nearly impossible to know if this is the whole truth and nothing but the truth however linear did confirm the arrest and there are other historical references to it anyway grant in several of his speeding buddies who were also arrested went with west to the police station. He President of the United States was ordered to to put up twenty bucks as collateral. A trial was held the next day. Thirty two ladies of the most refined character and surroundings voluntarily came into the court and testified against the drivers. The Star story said the cases were contested bitterly. The judge imposed heavy fines and the scathing rebuke to the speeding drivers which didn't include the president.

"According to national parks dot org. The website for the national park found. Dacian? There are currently sixty national parks. But even that number is misleading. The United States national park system encompasses a total of four hundred and eighteen different sites. That span across eighty four million acres, which is more land than than a lot of entire nations possess. The system includes parks and territories such as Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands American Samoa Guam, just one of America's parks. Alaska's Rangel, Saint Elliot's national park and preserve encompasses thirteen point two million acres bigger than Yellowstone Yosemite and the entire country of Switzerland combined. The US national park system is is in total over ten million acres bigger than the entire nation of Italy within the number of four hundred eighteen sites. Only sixty actually include national park is part of their proper name like Acadia national park on Maine's Atlantic coast Everglades national park on the southern tip of Florida Grand Canyon National park in Arizona Yellowstone National. Oh park primarily located in north west Wyoming but bleed into parts of Montana, and I'd Aho in addition to these national parks there are eleven different national battlefields. Four national battlefield parks. Won national battlefield site, nine national, military parks. Fifty one national historic parks, seventy eight national historic sites. And then there are national memorials national monuments national reserves, preserves recreation areas fee, shores, lake shores and more. So how did all these parks get here? Well, some people don't think they are here. Some people think they're just lies pushed on us via the moon matrix manipulated reality being projected down onto earth facilitated by courts deposits and alien technology taking the positive reality programming coming from the sun's photons twisting them into negative reality. Projectors pushing us towards war and famine and discord whatever turmoil faves the nudity those damn ancient Babylonian brotherhood, reptilian motherfucker. Cres that have been slaved humanity from Linnea, but those people are considered by most academics. And scientists to be utter maniacs. So let's nor that perspective. We're gonna have some fun with wacky doodles who do believe in shit equally crazy to what I just said here and there throughout today suck. And if that gibberish did make a little bit of sense to you, thanks for paying attention to the David stuff. I've been talking about from time to time people who live in the real world where history has not been grossly rewritten where we're not be manipulated by aliens understand that the origin of our national parks can be traced back to eighteen seventy two on March. I eighteen seventy two then president Ulysses s grant signed the Yellowstone National Park Protection Act. The congress had just passed establishing Yellowstone National Park in the territories of Montana in Wyoming as a quote, public park or pleasure. Ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people and placed it under exclusive control of the secretary of the interior the founding of Yellowstone National Park introduced a whole new concept and not just the people United States. But to the world at large, and that's the concept of preserving land for future generations to enjoy ensuring that no one will build on it outside the.

"Tom Sullivan as you are and. Oh, by the way. Do you have ready? The Komi stuff. What will fit this in here? Because I I'm looking at this whole Michael Flynn thing. And I. So they indicted these two guys that were his business partners now. So these two business partners of Flynn. Indicted on charges of illegal lobbying on behalf of the Turkish government. This is again, this is something that a lot of people have done and later, they get caught and they go. Oh, okay. We'll all go fill out the paperwork now. We'll everything's good. Right. Nothing ever happens to them. So I think it is interesting to say why are they going after these two guys in? Why didn't they go after them when they went after Flynn? So are these guys also going to get it past Flynn gets a pass? But the whole the whole thing was it's been known for some time. It's been reported for months, maybe more than a year. That this mullahs who lives in Pennsylvania is living there. Because of the fact that he was in Turkey. He would be killed and one thinks that he's the guy that arranged Lukulu, which almost work. I can't remember how long year ago year and a half ago. I remember going home, and there was live coverage from I don't know if it was an Kara or is Dan bowl. But there was a tanks in the streets and fire people shooting, and it was quite an effort to overthrow Erta. One did not work Irwan had the had the muscle of the military behind him. And they did not turn on him. One of those were the military turns on you're you're done. They did not. So he cracked down on anybody and everybody that was in his administration that he suspected wasn't faithful to him. And he and everybody apparently pointed to this Mullen Pennsylvanians, and he's the guy who cooked this whole thing up so early one wanted him back in the worst way. So we hired a couple of guys and Flynn to lobby forgetting him back. It's interesting also that they did not charge Flynn. With illegal lobbying. Why not? And if you're his two business partners, and and you just got an indictment. And you're going, but wait a minute. Wait a minute. The guy our business partner the guy who had all the connections. He gets nothing. He's not even charged with illegal lobbying, and he may get off scot-free tomorrow. And I'm facing some serious indictments. And why is it these guys when there's all kinds of people doing this that they haven't cracked down on? So I think judge Napolitano's, right? This is not fair they pick and choose who they're going to go after and they're going after Flynn and his business partners. Well, there's another guy that was involved. With this Turkey story. Another big big huge lobbying firm that did a lot of lobbying for Ukraine believe was involved with Turkey that was Tony Podesta and Podesta had one of the biggest lobbying firms and one of the most successful lobbying firms because he was tied in had great connections with his brother being the. Campaign manager for Hillary's campaign and for being connected to the Clinton White House. So we had tons of contacts on the left side of the ideological. I'll so we got paid big fees to be a lobbyist. Well, desta. One day is big successful lobbying firm the next day he resigns and a couple of weeks later, they shut the firm down. Everybody's gone. Now does that look a little suspicious, and why didn't they go after him? Why didn't Muller go after pedestrian for doing the similar moves lobbying without being registered? But go after Flynn, but not after pedestrian. This is why folks I worry about the fact that there's a lot of people in this country. You can call them crank. You can call them Crump lovers, whatever. But they're, but they're they're they ask good questions. Why just these people? Why did we not investigate others who happen to have a d- after their name? And what it does is it even if you're democrat, and you go well. Investigate. Argh is good. But what it does is? It puts a question in your mind about the fairness of our judicial system in this country. And you wonder why people are losing faith in our government in our Justice department in the FBI in all of these institutions where you go. Whoa. No. I'm no harbored lawyer. But. Seems to me like Tony Podesta were doing the same thing to Michael Flynn was doing. Why haven't they arrested Tony Podesta indicted him? Maybe they will. Maybe I'm speaking before we get all the reports and facts. But I'm starting to wonder if that's ever going to see the light of day. And if it doesn't shame on Muller and the special prosecutor's office. I think I think when this is all said and done special prosecutor, they should get rid of that permanently. Never ever. Again, have a special prosecutor we got oodles of investigators all over government that can investigate anything that somebody's doing that looks wrong. But special prosecutors have powers, and they are not answerable to almost to any elected official. This is exactly why when they dump the indictments on Flynn's two partners to send a message to Michael Flynn and the judge tomorrow. Well, what are they gonna do the same thing on not only Tony Podesta? There's others involved as well. Hillary's campaign was doing what a lot of campaigns. Do they were working with Ukrainians to get information dirt on Trump? Trump was working with Russians or whoever was offering a dirt on Hillary. It's not right. It's not legal. But it's done all the time. Only one side seems to be getting the brunt. End of all of this. Does. Oh, yeah. I've got the story about the. About a president. There was arrested. Where did I put it? There is precedence for a president being arrested. And it goes back to great story. It grew legs. Where did it go here? It is. Washington Post Michael Rosenthal. People are asking the question can the president United States, be indicted? Arrested handcuffed the whole deal. Well, the prevailing answer is. Nobody is for sure. But that's not exactly true. Because. President Ulysses s grant in eighteen seventy two while president was arrested at the corner of thirteenth and m streets in Washington DC. It wasn't a high crime. It was a misdemeanor. The man who led the north to victory in the civil war was busted for speeding now. I know this eighteen seventy two they don't have cars. He was speeding in his horse drawn carriage. I didn't know they had speed limits back in those days, but the story of his arrest. Told in a remarkable. But forgotten story in September nineteen o eight addition of the Washington evening star under the headline only policeman. Whoever arrested a president his name is William west. He was a soldier who fought in the civil war and in his retirement, he decided to let the public know about the true story of one of the arrested president Ulysses s grant, but I'll share that with you. It's a great story. When we come back. Don't go away. My name is Tom Sullivan Trainor the rudest person.
The History of Cyber Monday
"Welcome to tech stuff. I'm your host Jonathan Strickland, an executive producer, and that love all things tech today thought change things up a bit and talk about the history and evolution of cyber Monday. So where did this come from? And are the deals on cyber Monday. Really great. And I guess the answer to that. Second question is essentially it depends. But first, let's talk about some history. So before there was cyber Monday. There was black Friday both in the sense that black Friday is a thing is older than cyber Monday. And also cyber Monday is the Monday that follows black Friday. So technically, it's true in two different senses. All right. So what does black Friday one of the United States? Black Friday is the Friday following thanksgiving. Thanksgiving in the United States falls on the fourth Thursday of November. At least it has ever since. Eighteen thirty nine when Franklin Delano Roosevelt moved the holiday up a week from the final Thursday of November. Now since November two thousand eighteen started on a Thursday November. I was Thursday that means that two thousand eighteen will see thanksgiving fall as early as it can which means November twenty second the latest. It can fall in the month is November twenty eighth. Anyway, black Friday is the day after thanksgiving in the United States. Now, there is an apocryphal story that says the origins of black Friday are deeply racist and tied to the United States history with slavery. According to that story slave traders would sell slaves at a discount on the day after thanksgiving to help plantation owners who are going to want to purchase more slaves to do work leading up to the winter. That's a horrible horrible thing. But the story isn't true at all. And honestly, I find it hard to believe that slave traders would respond to an increase in demand by lowering their prices, they already seen like terrible terrible human beings. I don't think of them as being particularly altruistic. However, we can put that whole explanation aside. Anyway, if anyone tells you black Friday is based in slavery that is not true. The term black Friday in relation to the day after thanksgiving did not appear in print until the nineteen fifties. As far as we can determine there was however an earlier version of black Friday, though, that was not the day after thanksgiving that black Friday wasn't associated with a holiday at all. But rather with a stock market crash that happened on Friday September twenty fourth eighteen sixty nine the cause of that crash was that there were two speculators named Jay Gould and James Fisk and together they were able to drive up. The gold prices way way up while they were trying to corner the market on gold on the New York gold exchange. They had even planted a story to convince US president Ulysses s grant to stop gold sales. They had this report that it was going to hurt farmers out west. Meanwhile, they bought up as much gold as they could. And that raised gold prices as a result. So they thought they were going to be rich. They're going to buy up the golden than they could sell it off at these elevated prices, however, president grant found out about it any ordered the release of millions of dollars of gold to be made available on the market and that caused prices to crash suddenly there was way more supply and this crash ended up affecting the stock market as well. However, this was a moment of acute pain. It was a sharp debt in the stock market, thus the name black Friday, but in the long term. Meant that the nation was actually able to avoid a more persistent depression. So it ended up turning out better than it. Otherwise would have the earliest known reference to the day after thanksgiving being black Friday dates to nineteen fifty one from periodical titled factory management and maintenance that it was a real page Turner..
