Newt Minow on the Presidential Debates
"Hi everybody I'm John Donvan and this is intelligence squared US part of our discourse disruptor series and what we're going to be focusing on. Our the coming presidential debates they are coming sort of starting September twenty-ninth, the first of three. And of course, because everything's different this year, the debates are going to feel different almost certainly going to be. In some fashion remote, maybe the debaters, the candidates won't even be in the same place. There's only going to be one moderator. We're not gonNA live audience because you can't have that many people in one space in this dangerous time. Also what we have going on as a conversation simultaneously with which is focused on, maybe we shouldn't have debates maybe it's time to wrap up that whole institution and go back to a time of no debates. And when I say go back did you know that for most of American history this institution that we know is the debates did not exist that for most of our history, there were no debates and did you know that once we started having debates that in the first series, there was a remote debate the candidates were not in the same place and there was no live audience. And there was only one moderator. So maybe things are circling back. There's a lot of history here and we are interested in that because. At intelligence squared, we are very interested in history and we are also very very interested in debates. So that's what we want to focus on and we want to focus. In this case of discourse disrupters with an excellent source of information about the past and the present and potentially the future, and that is a gentleman named Newton Minot and Newton Minnow is an old friend of intelligence squared us and he's also known as the father of American presidential debates and we'll talk a little bit about why that is. But first, let's bring Newt Minnow into the conversation newt. Thank you so much for for joining us. It's really a pleasure to be back in communication with you. John I. LOOK FORWARD TO I. Admire your work or the intelligence squared very very much. Well, thank you. Can I ask before we start everything else I find it interesting that for folks who don't know you have lived through some very, very disruptive times and this one in your nineties a comes at the after a long series of other adventures. I mean, you have lived through I, think twenty three presidential elections. At this point, you have seen twelve cycles of the debates that we're GONNA be talking about. You lived through the major disruption called World War to. Use served overseas you went into politics You're an aide to ally Stevenson who ran for president does the Democratic nominee twice in the nineteen fifties. So you saw two elections then you joined John Kennedy's administration and you saw the trauma of his assassination and then you were very close friends with Robert Kennedy and you saw his assassination and lived through that and and now this. Just just to take a moment is, is this disruption different in dramatically in kind from all of the others you've seen so far? Well, I lived through all that, but then I had another. Exposure to politics with Obama, the because Michelle worked for our firm and and Barack came to be a summer associate and they fell in love and so we got. So we had another round politics with with with the OBAMAS. About that but all throughout, I would say the last fifty years of this you have been intersecting with this institution that we call the presidential debates take us back to nineteen, fifty, nine, nineteen, sixty, where as an aide to at least Stevenson. You actually were involved in the idea of pushing forward the idea that there there. He did not get to take part in that kind of debate but was interested in enemies interested because you are suggesting it. You have a very strong faith in the idea of technology. To be a force for good and for communication and you saw television as this, you're right as this big thing happening in the sixties. Well, it actually was in the fifties in when. In in the fifty six. Presidential, election. The incumbent President President Eisenhower. Having a heart attack. And there was a big question whether he would be able to run again. And I suggested to adly that instead of the candidates. Rushing. All over the country and speaking crowds that that. Now, we have television which reached every home. And that instead of traditional debate that. There'd be a series of joint appearances or debates between the presidential candidates. As they considered that his advisors thought it was a gimmick and it was he never suggested it. The Federal Communications Act when it was originally passed during the new deal. Required equal time for political candidates. The law said section three fifteen FA broadcaster gives or sells time to one candidate. At must give ourselves time to the opponent on the same basis. As a result that was interpreted by the Federal Communications Commission to mean any use of the air by a candidate including being in a news program. So the broadcasters were pressing to get news programs exempt. From the equal time requirement and they finally succeeded in the late fifties. But debates were not regarded as a news program.
A Song For Peace
"This is the story of a song that is in a way the story of this country in the spring of Nineteen, sixty-nine at a sidewalk cafe on Richmond Street tucked in from the corner of Dizengoff. Street in Tel Aviv a twenty four year old poet named Yakov or Janka wrote Blit met a twenty five year old musician and arranger named yet year Rosenbloom and the two men became friends the cafe was called California and the.

The first thing to know about Cafe California is what it wasn't just one hundred and twenty five meters up Dizengoff was a legendary Bohemian cafe called carseat. It had been in operation since nineteen, thirty five, and since then it was the place where you can find some of Jewish palestines and then Israel's greatest poets and writers. On Alterman and Lebron's Sean Ski. Lay. Goldberg. Alexander Penn great writers who had been young and who grew old drinking coffee in the afternoon and vodka in Iraq at night at the simple spare tables of cassette alongside these luminaries in the nineteen sixties.

Then that had lived a good deal of life. Netanyahu was born in nineteen twenty seven in the southwest corner of what is now Iran in a place called Abedin on the Persian Gulf just. Across the border from Bosra not far from Kuwait at six he was sent to board at Saint. Mary's a Jesuit School in Mumbai where you had an aunt, his parents abandoned. Persia. For India when he was twelve at sixteen and Nineteen, forty three, he lied about his age and joined the Royal Indo British Air Force in time after he trained to watch the Second World War wind down at twenty one he came to fight in Israel's war of independence and never left taking a job as an El Al pilot when he was decommissioned. It was with a few restless L. Buddies that Netanyahu opened cafe. California soon, it was filled with the city's young wannabe writers, directors and poets the people most eager to knock from their sinecures the city's old writers, directors, and poets who argued and held forth at carseat. Ab Thanh was a magnet for Bohemians and he came alive when he was with Bohemians, their company produced in him at once a sense of satisfaction. He had found his people but also a sense of restlessness eighty, nine ton was in constant search of his next Gig in nineteen sixty five he ran for Knesset advice of a friend who worked in PR he pledged that if he was elected, he would fly to Egypt to meet with General Nasser to seek peace after he failed to win a seat in parliament, he anyway bought a nineteen twenty seven steer. Men by playing that, he named piece one on February twenty, eighth nineteen, sixty six, he took off and flying low to avoid Israeli radars he landed in Port Saieed the Egyptians sent him back the next day Nassar had refused to see him back home a retired David Ben Gurion told reporters that not tons trip was an event of moral and political importance and quote pope. Pious gave him a medal of peace and Robert Kennedy and Bertrand Russell sought out his company not much later the notion took hold of Natanz, that music held the key to altering. Israeli. In the summer of Nineteen Sixty Nine AB NATANZ bought a Dutch cargo ship named MVP SEATO MVP stands for motor vessel and he rechristened it the MVP piece from Holland he sailed to New York to raise money and set up a shipboard radio station. His plan was to anchor in the Mediterranean outside territorial waters of Egypt and Israel and broadcast songs of peace that might open the minds of Israelis any. Alike his sojourn to New York stretched biblically three years would pass before he returned with ship in good repair with mixers, turntables, ABC cartridge machines, reel to reel tape machines, and fifty kilowatt transmitter to help not on- by what he needed John.

Doug Jones's impeachment vote was more courageous than Romney's
"Senator. Doug Jones of Alabama casts. Perhaps the most important vote of his Senate career. He voted to convict president trump on both articles of impeachment. It could cost him his seat this November but the man elect to fill jeff sessions. Seat doesn't care. He says it was the right thing to do. Senator Jones. Thank you for coming back to the PODCAST. No my pleasure enjoyed it last time. And I'm sure I will this time. Well you have had a a momentous few few weeks and by that I mean your vote on both articles of impeachment to convict President Trump and in your speech and on the floor of the Senate you said there will be so there were so many that will simply look at what I'm doing today and say it is a profile in courage it is not it is simply a matter of right and wrong were doing right is not a courageous act. It is simply following your oath and I bring up that quote because it was it was stirring during And cheered it on in a tweet but President Trump won Alabama by twenty eight points in two thousand sixteen eighteen and according to the morning console poll that I just looked at in Jan January his approval rating is sixty percent. Yeah I believe that. By the way the highest in the country. You don't believe that I've seen a number of different things. I don't believe it's not too far off but I do believe it's lower lower than that and what that concept poll also missing out a little bit is negatives have been an gradually growing so that gap is narrowing a considerably. Well I bring I bring up. The election totals in that particular poll result to ask it just a blunt question. Did your vote to convict on the two articles of impeachment. Seal your defeat this November. I don't think so. I not not by any stretch I think that people you know an Alabama they're gonNA it's one thing to support a president and their policies it's another thing to simply the acknowledged right from wrong and people in Alabama hard working folks. They know the difference between right and wrong. They may disagree with whether or not What what he did rose to the level of impeachment? But I don't think it seals the deal whatsoever. I think people are going to be looking at my record. They're going to see a record for people in Alabama on kitchen table issues just like ran in ran on. And that's the message that we're going to get across and the other thing too is I think you know people are going to see that. Vote as someone who had a lot of I put a lot of time minute. Put a lot of thought in and I really. This was an analysis that I did and at the end of the day. I came down and I'm going to be able to explain that I'll tell you Jonathan. I'll just candidly ever ran into A business leader and I won't go into detail so that people can't really identifying but he's I've known him for a long time he's a Republican business leader from an Alabama in Birmingham He was on the plane with me yesterday. And as we were getting off waited the jetway and he walked me down the jetway and he said Doug he said I just really admire you for voting your convictions and I wanNA help you in the campaign pain and got the address to send a check for the campaign. And I think there's going to be a lot of that in Alabama We'll see how it goes. How hard was was it to make that decision? Because I alluded to the fact that I sent out a tweet after watching your your speech. And everyone's given a lot of plaudits to Senator Senator Mitt Romney who should and they should that because he's a republican because he was the the twenty twelve Republican presidential nominee. But he's also from Utah and he's also wealthy and he's someone for he doesn't need this job and he. It does not stand the possibility of losing his seat because of that. Vote and as you said in your speech you know people say what you've done is profiling courage but yours was the the the more courageous vote because you put your career on the line for this vote. How hard was it to make this decision? It let me answer it this way. Okay because I I've said this to people over the last few days. It was not hard from a political standpoint because I honest to God did not consider it from a political standpoint. Okay I mean I'm sixty five years old. I've only been senator for three of those sixty five years. Okay I was a lawyer so this is you know I'm I'm I'm not that career politician that put that calculation in there like that but what I am is a lawyer and I've been trained as a lawyer and I've been trained to do the right thing I've been and trained to try to put the best foot forward for the constitution and what the founders I thought said and what they believed in the and try to put the pieces of that puzzle together so the difficulty of this of this vote had nothing to do with politics having said that it was still a difficult vote. I mean you know. I'm had to make a decision that to cast a vote to remove the president of the United States duly elected. Despite what a lot of people may say around all that he was duly elected he's GonNa be on the ballot. This was a weighty constitutional issue and so when I said that in by the way the quote that you gave was not something that I had prepared you know after we made the announcement which was about thirty minutes before I went to the floor. You know I started getting text messages. I saw twitter blowing up and people saying that in whatever and I'm sitting in the in the chamber listening to Kamla and listening listening to Maggie Hassen and I'm thinking about this and I realized you know people are saying things like that and I'm sitting at John. F Kennedy's desk now. I already have the quote quote from Robert Kennedy and so I'm thinking you know this is just Naronha. Won't people to think that I'm some. You know super courageous just got. I'm just doing the right thing. And so that that was something that I just inserted ad libbed on my own because really believed it and I'd been saying it's been consistent assistant with what I've said from the very beginning. I'M GONNA follow my oath both to defend the constitution and to do impartial justice right in that second oath to do impartial justice. Was this specific. Oath that you that all senators had to write to swear to as a part of the impeachment impeachment trial impeachment process. Did I read correctly. You took hundreds of pages of notes math four hundred thirty close to them. I think handwritten or you know I. They were all handwritten written. What were you? What were you noting? Well I was taking. It was almost like a stenographer. I mean when I'm in a trial my my my my training is a trial lawyer is to take notes because I am most of my clients never had the money to do like real time transcripts in those days as and so. I'm writing as fast as I can so that I can go in and I can look. I can prepare for cross examination or do whatever I need to do. And I've got two different different kind of pins. I got a blue pin because always right and blue and I got my blue Pimm it. I got up. Read one sitting over here because as I'm writing is I'm listening. Something's going to pop in my brain and going to put a star under and I'm going to outline and they wanNA ride in the margin question or a comment or something like that and so. That is my way of just reinforcing. Being the facts I wanted to know those fact. I had a pretty good handle on those with all the research and that we did leading up to this because we started working on this before it became an impeachment inquiry. We started working on this. And so that's what I did. It was just one of those things to try to make sure that because at the end of the day on new however voted I was. I'm going to be called on to justify that vote and I wanted to be able factually to to make that argument argumentatively to make the argument and the best way to do that is to write it. Write it write it write it. Write it and not just sitting there listening and start daydream enough

Germany and I specialize in focus on motion design but also do traditional graphic graphic design and do a lot of public speaking and teaching here and there You're also a model from what I can see from welcomes ads.

That's new welcome aboard and on today's episode. We're going to talk a lot about work life balance and how to family family men you and I or people who have families how you manage active career so the way we're GonNa talk about this is we're going to I jump into like what was life like for you. You prior to having kids and having a family like just the the work you the young person who's really driven ambitious. What was that like? What was that life like for you well life before kids was certainly massively different in many ways I was doing the traditional hustle all day every day as much as I can I have I have the fortunate position position to to love my work? You know like just as you in any hopefully most of of creative people love love their work and I don't take this for granted I always thought it's it's it's a privilege to just go in and be excited to create something you and always be challenged to learn a new tool or new technique or try this. Try by that so I was. I was working a lot and I didn't really consider it as work although I found it to be strenuous at times especially during my internship in Hamburg where I essentially went from for example from doing five times a week sports to once in six months and also having to fridge with things not looking so well after a few days or weeks. You know so This was a time of of Late shifts and working really long hours hours than this was during studies. So this carried over after even after I finish my studies and moved to Munich so I was working super late nights. I was always a Late late night person. You know I still have trouble getting off getting getting up in the morning and really get the engine going so was more like okay. Yeah let's let's start work from ten eleven something like this way into the night and and this is where thrived really was no email. No no phone nothing Two and three and the best ideas pop up on this. Try this technique so Yeah I was. I was working really long hours and learned lots doing. I'm doing that and Really appreciate that time a lot. How old how is your way before? Yeah I WANNA share share licenses but how what years is just so everybody. Everybody gets a sense of where we are in history so right now I'm forty I was hang on was fifty. It was twenty five during my internship. I graduated I think I was twenty six or twenty seven graduated from from university so But I started work in free ninety even before studied so I think right after doing my what would the equivalent of high school I think at twenty I started basically To freelance before studying. So this this been on from I'm twenty to thirty five I would say so I will. Oldest is no five years. I was thirty five when he was born so Think for about and now for about fifteen years. The Hustle was pretty intense. I and and a lot of fun too but so different to rain a lot of long nights all right so when you say you're working and being inspired to in the morning what does a typical day like when when you get up when you go to sleep and did you do this five days a week or seven Sunday's week back in the days back in the day back in the day it was it was much more structured. It was was it was. It's funny actually. Because you know when I was younger it was basically like you say the dream of freelancer. You know you know just you know not not giving a damn you know still of course being disciplined and getting getting stuff done and finishing projects on time. Of course this was. This was obvious is an absolute necessity but still Going onto the basketball court playing basketball Coming back late in the afternoon working so it was not really. It was not really a schedule was like going with the flow. And just doing whenever inspiration hits me and So it was mostly flair tried to work five five days a week but for me weekends weren't as holy as they are right now. You know it was. Yeah you know what it was Saturday. Hey someone has a cool idea we can. We can do something with UV lights and fluorescent colors and we can film it enclosed oven ns through that under Saturday. No one's GonNa Bother and it was just you know whenever whenever you want and whenever inspiration in the Mus- hit you when I would at was it sounded like you were just is living in the moment and just leaving to whatever your heart and passion took you and I think that's a really cool and special period in your life and of course all things exchange but before we get there so I'm getting this now. Whatever you felt inspired to do you did if you wanted to play basketball you would if you wanted to stay up to four in the morning working on some new technique make you would do that? And you didn't have to feel guilty or anything else because it was just about you and your personal and professional development right correct now okay super all right how how how was it for you. Not that different so okay. When I got out of school in Nineteen ninety-five? I started my the company just a few months after graduation. And you know when you start a company. There's a lot of responsibilities and the kind of company has started. I almost had a staff almost from from the jump when I got one and there was more work to do than I could do. Admittedly just reached out to people and started to bring them in. It wasn't fulltime but it was fulltime freelance people working for me kind of early on that meant that the hustle game was really strong. I do want to tell you this because eventually couple of years after I did get married and I was working With my friend and my girlfriend and she became my wife but for those I think five of years I didn't take any holidays. There was no vacation it was just work all the time. If I wasn't working on a project I was either reading or developing myself itself as a person so there was a lot of things I needed to learn about. Motion Design about titled Design About Even Hotter Structure a company and the technical aspects suspects like back in the day because it's a nineteen ninety five when we were able to connect to computers together and share a printer and my mind was blown.

Close the gap that the fist between black and white between rich and poor when young and old in this country and around the rest of the world.

We're war now mistakenly cleared that we can change. Thank invite the politics only by changing the man. We're not making them. In fifteen days. Bob Visited Sixteen states storming through campaign sites like a superstar. He drew passionate electors of different backgrounds colors and class who saw oh him as the perfect figure of change standing on platforms of economic justice and racial equality. Bobby already one in three state. Primaries South Dakota Indiana and Nebraska. I don't want to win support of votes by Heidi condition and false hopes illusions. I want us to find out a promise of the future but we can accomplish here in the United States but this country does Dan. What is expected of us in the years ahead and I also I want to go and examine we roll and I want all young and old? You have a chance to build a better country and change the direction. The United States of America after Losing Oregon to McCarthy the next and most important state of the primary race was California for Bobby. Losing California would mean the end of his chances of securing a nomination in California's diverse and inclusive Lucido number of voters best summarized Bobby supporters. If you couldn't win there there would be no reason to keep running. But Bobby didn't have to worry. Not since Abraham I am Lincoln had a white politician been so embraced by people of Color. Kennedy one California with forty six percent of the votes McCarthy's forty-two percent. It was enough off to say. He was very likely to secure his nomination as the presidential candidate so Thanks to all of you and now it's on the Chicago and let's Win Nancy but bodies happiness didn't last long on June fifth nineteen sixty eight at the ambassador Senator Hotel in Los Angeles. He addressed his supporters thanking them for the win. His next step was to address. The Nation to avoid the crowd eagerly waiting for picture or a hug like they did at every rally. Bobby decided to leave through the hotel's kitchen but Sirhan Sirhan a twenty four year old Palestinian Alestinian. Born American was on Bobby's way and he had other plans for the Senator Sarhan. was there on a mission against Bobby. He Shot Kennedy in the head. Ed claiming he did it. In response of Bobby's support of Israel Sirhan was tackled to the ground and as bobby lay wounded. A busboy approached placing using a rosary in his hand while they waited for the ambulance the busboy. Juan Romero. Later stated that Bobby's first instinct was to ask if everyone was OK. His last words were similar. They were assuring ones. Everything's going to be okay. Bobby was rushed to the hospital shortly after but was pronounced dead the next morning on June sixth nineteen sixty eight less than five years after his brother's assassination the idealistic underdog and and in the minds of many the greatest president the US never had was forty two years. Old Bobby's body was buried in Arlington Virginia. Virginia but a high requiem mass was held in New York City. At Saint Patrick's Cathedral members of Bobby's staff his family and president Lyndon B Johnson attended ended. The event Ted Kennedy the only surviving brother of the Kennedy Family wrote his eulogy. My brother need not be idealized or enlarged in death beyond what he wasn't life to be remembered simply as a good and decent man who saw wrong and tried to right it. You saw suffering and tried to heal it saw war and tried to stop. Those of US loved loved him and take him to his rest today. Pray that what. He was to us what he wished for others will. Ah Someday come to pass. Roll the world as he said many times in many parts of this nation those he touched you and who sought to touch him some things as they are and say why I dream things that that never were and say why not after his death. Bobby Kennedy left behind the legacy of a man who would fight passionately for Human Rights Social Social Justice and a peaceful world many historians like to imagine the what ifs of the world unlike JFK. Bobby died before he had a chance to deliver liver or to disappoint another man who came from one of the richest and most influential families in the US was also the man who is able to reach the most diverse number of voters odors. And he did it by giving them the most valuable feeling. He could hope carved on his gravestone are the words of his favourite poem from escalates quote. Quote he who learns must suffer and even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop-by-drop upon the heart and in our own despair. Bear against our will comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God..

"Bollywood waiting on death. Row at the killing people and the rifle with dental does that make any sense that you should put rifles and guns in the hands of people who have long criminal record of people who are in vain or people who are mentally incompetent. People were so young that they don't know how to handle rifles the gun. I just feel he was on a roll in June. Nineteen sixty six bobby Kennedy accompanied by his wife. Ethel visited apartheid apartheid era South Africa. It was a time when few politicians risk getting involved in the politics of South Africa. But Bobby was comfortable with speaking his mind. He was one of the first international leaders to stand up against the oppression of the native population of South Africa. Each time a man stand up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others or strikes out against injustice he sends for a tiny ripple of hope and crossing each the other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can fleet down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance during his tenure in the Senate. Bobby help start. A successful redevelopment project in the poor areas of Brooklyn was a vital figure in the poor people's the march organized by Martin Luther King and worked with Cesar Chavez in support of the workers right. He became extremely popular among African Americans Native Americans Americans and immigrant groups but it was his position against the war in Vietnam that marked most of his legacy as a senator Americans want to move forward warwick they want to better their communities make this country not only more livable. For All Americans but a shining lean example for all of the world to free their energies and progress at home they want peace in Vietnam produced not not by surrender of either side for by negotiated settlement at realistically takes into account as quickly as possible. The need for all Vietnamese and only Vietnamese determine the future of their own country president Lyndon B Johnson began bombing Vietnam in nineteen sixty five even though he had inherited the war from JFK LBJ was the main gene figure in escalating. It Kennedy against his own party's president proposed a three-point plan to end the war under the plan. America would cease bombing operations nations in Vietnam and US troops would leave the country to be replaced by international ones LBJ's administration on surprisingly rejected. The plan. This was has the fuel bobby needed to start his own presidential campaign. Hey honey so are you running or not I see in you too Bernabe. That's what everyone's been saying. You said you didn't want it and I don't I won't run. Johnson is seeking reelection. It's completely unrealistic for me to run. I will lose and Kennedy's don't lose. Isn't that the only reason I don't keep thinking about reasons not to do something. I usually stopped once I have one. Don't don't be a smart ass with me I don't get it. Do you want me to run or not. I want you to do what you think is right. Do you think Johnson should still be president. WHO's the party leader Ethel? I don't think I have a say in it. Normal people don't have a say in it. Bobby you do Pete Hamill said the people are hanging pictures on their walls. They look at you and you bring them hope bobby you have an obligation of staying true to whatever it was that. Put those pictures on those walls. That's what the president does not a president. Neither is Johnson. That'll please how many people still hang. LBJ's picture on the wall. Nobody nobody wants to see Johnson rule for another term. You only have to take McCarthy out of the race. He's the candidate to beat. Johnson knows he doesn't stand. Stand a chance you did all that research already on June seventeenth nineteen fifty. I became a Kennedy all doing acting like one. If I'm running. I'm not doing doing it just to oppose Johnson. I'll run because I'm convinced that this country is on a dangerous course and because I have such strong feelings about what must be done but I feel I'm obliged to do all like hey what you've been practicing your speech. Where Kennedy's aren't we will return to our story in just a moment and now let's continue our story after much speculation? LBJ announced that he would not run for a second term. His unpopularity due to the consequences of the war in Vietnam ended. His chances of a possible reelection and the Democratic Party started the search for the best viable candidate. That person in the eyes of some was Bobby Kennedy and in the eyes of others was Eugene McCarthy. A LONGTIME CONGRESSMAN FROM MINNESOTA in March nineteen eighteen sixty eight. Bobby finally decided he was ready to run for president. He made the announcement in the same spot where his brother. JFK announced his candidacy eight years. Here's earlier.

Bobby stepped down from the Senate Select Committee in in order to run his brother's presidential campaign. The nineteen sixty election campaign was dominated by rising Cold War tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union despite his young forty-three years. JFK had the foreign experience and the necessary charisma to win the Democratic primary election after winning the nineteen in sixty presidential election president elect John F Kennedy appointed. Bobby Attorney General. It wasn't the most well received nomination. Several publications locations would call bobby inexperienced and unqualified for the position. The biggest complaint was the amount of power and influence bobby had over. JFK's Day to day decisions. He was a campaign director and attorney general chief advisor and brother protector due to his background in fighting against Corruption Bobby initiated initiated a relentless campaign against organized crime and the Mafia convictions against organized crime figures rose by eight hundred percent during his term also during his tenure bobby undertook one of the most energetic and persistent integration of the administration in Capitol Hill up until that point. Bobby's demands were such that. He I made sure. Every area of government begin recruiting realistic levels of black and other ethnic minority workers. He even criticized Vice President Lyndon Johnson for his failure to desegregate his own office staff bobby then proceeded to urge JFK to take a stand on civil rights. And that's exactly what he did did. We are confronted by merrily. A moral issue. It is as old as the scriptures and is as clear as the American constitution of the questionnaires questionnaires. For All Americans. It'd be afforded equal rights and equal opportunities whether we are going to treat all Americans we want to be treated if an American because his skin is gone cannot eat lunch restaurant open to the public if you cannot send his children the best public school available if he cannot vote for the public officials who represent him.

Happy Birthday Bobby. Thank you the big three eight. Yes yes the fearful thirty eight you got up into my friend other than Oh my God. I didn't know the president was a show. Yeah neither did I.. The body come here little brother. Aren't you supposed to be in Texas. I decided to make a quick stop. Thirty seven years old. Who would have thought watching? Make it that far thirty eight. That's what I said. I'm glad you came. Mr President still getting used to all this name calling never gets old. Bobby I can promise you that. What am I talking about? You'll know it soon. What do you mean please? You're smart. You'll read you've got the experience you'll take that seat after me. Bobby John. You're barely in it. Let's make sure we keep you there nonsense but we can talk about it later tonight. We party little brother. Also I got you this I can't remember the last time you gave me a present John. Well it was probably around the last time you called me John. Romeo and Juliet is the oldest edition. I could find but I know you like those things so I did a couple of senators and by outbid you mean you told them you wanted the book and made them back off semantics come on you loved it. Used to say it all the time when he showed I take him and cut him out little star and he will make the face of Heaven so fine that all the world would be in love love with night and pay no worship to the Garish Sun. Juliet must have been some girl right. You know they're talking about Romeo right semantics little brother so you like it or not I love it. Thank you Mr President. The night of his thirty eighth birthday was the night bobby. Last saw his older older brother two days later on November twenty second nineteen sixty three. JFK was fatally shot in Dallas Texas with JFK. Okay Gone Bobby was left to carry on his legacy alone and very much not prepared or wishful of the spotlight. He was hurt. He was in pain but he didn't have time to suffer. He needed to deliver. And that's exactly what he did at the Democratic National Convention of Nineteen Sixty four President Kennedy Shakespeare Romeo when he shall die taking him cut him out little stars and he shall make face of having so far all the world will be in love with my pain pain. Hey listen to the garish son. When he finished his goodbye? Speech Bobby left alone and hid in the corridors of the event and days after the assassination of JFK Lyndon Johnson took the seat and with the office vice president available. Bobby was considered as a a potential candidate for the position in the nineteen sixty four presidential election but bobby had no intention and rising to power due to his brother's tragedy. He chose not to pursue pursued vice president chair not only out of respect for his brother but also due to the fact that bobby and LBJ had a reputation of very much disliking each other he might have denied the seat at that time. But it didn't take long for bobby to want to go back to political life nine months after JFK's assassination. He left the cabinet to campaign. Pain is a senator for New York. Needless to say. RFK was elected though the transition from being the president's most trusted adviser to one of one hundred. It's senators was not the easiest one. His younger brother Ted became an ally having served the Senate himself but not without a few concerns for Ted and most other senators. Bobby had a reputation of being well prepared for any sort of debate but his tendency to speak two other senators in a blunt way caused him to be unpopular are with a lot of his colleagues bobby up until that point never had to hold back on his words he had been an attorney general and his brothers trusted adviser but times had changed changed the man who was once the most trusted adviser to the president and who was used to running covert operations suddenly couldn't join the hearings. He had to start from the bottom as a junior senator on the times were changing and bobby was now constantly being put in the spotlight. There was nobody. He was campaigning for other than himself in and that was a first for him. Everyone was watching him. It was the first time he had to stand up and speak for himself bobby at spoken for his brother and on behalf of his brother most in his life. So how'd you find your own voice after forty years of not being the number one Kennedy. How do you deal with finally having to speak your own mind in? RFK's case it was the chance he had to stand up for his beliefs without threatening anyone else's reputation but his own. He was free to say whatever he wanted and he did. Exactly exactly that require that when somebody purchases a gun through a mail order or you tend to gun or rifle across them a State Line that you will by the law of a particular state all does at the present moment a person who's insane a man with a long criminal record of having killed a dozen people can go in and buy a rifle people you think that makes sense for all of a person who's four years old can go buy a rifle now. A person fix years old at a man and the death on on death. Row in canvas. Kill the half a dozen people in if someone sent or rifle through the mail from Chicago for him to. They have a rifle.

shock we can't control that is a less fancy way of saying and exhaustiveness shock which is more than See Way of saying something outside the normal happens that suddenly makes everything more expensive a hundred years ago the best theory about recessions was that they were caused by sunspot what's literal spots and flares on the sun that would randomly send waves of radiation towards the earth leading to sick crops and then businesses is failing and then banks closing I know it sounds ridiculous and of course it is scientifically wrong and yet that is basically what happened this year but instead of the sun it's OPEC the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries yes last year nineteen seventy-three OPEC declared an oil embargo against nations that supported Israel that included

CEO Let's talk a little bit about your theme this year it's called what's next why what's next and what is next so what's next is that so we're looking for faster growth in the future then in the past and but what's next is the growth the economy goes for the stock market what do you mean economy and and what I think is that when you think about the turmoil that's taking place in the stock market now and everyone is afraid that's you know and people have higher amounts of cash and they've ever had before in Europe they have negative interest rates people so concerned is eighteen central banks can in Rio do there The interesting United States are have been going down the way I think about it though is that the stock market today is pretty much the same values nations that it was in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and sixteen point six times earnings or sixteen point five times earnings then then was amidst turmoil you had the city's on fire the national guard the streets are trying to keep law and order yet the Vietnam War protests women's rights protesting so so everything was it's a mess but but really sticks and the assassination of President Kennedy swapping my office about I have a lot of younger people mouse and they said tell me about this assignations sixties and people said well John Kennedy said anyone else and they said I don't know it was Martin Luther King in one thousand nine six eight and Robert Kennedy Nineteen Sixty eight they tried to get George awesome so so there was turmoil and it was a concern that that the country was going to survive but the stock market then was thousands on Al Jones is now twenty six or twenty seven thousand twenty six times the economy then was eight hundred and fifty billion is now twenty one point three trillion twenty five times so all you had to do this believe that this country was going to survive and invest then and you would have made twenty five hundred money and so I think that what's going to happen in the next fifty years of course I'll be one hundred twenty six by then and you can reach me at Barron Funds Dot Com they will know where uh-huh and but but I'm thinking about the next the next fifty years it's going to be similar to the last fifty years that'd be twenty five times or money if you invest now and and and even better is that interest rates today or one and a half percent one point six percent for ten years they're normally four and a half percent for ten years you have platform investments now so it used to be when I was young and you wanted to make money you'd build a factory for a million dollars or hotel and then maybe eight hundred thousand one hundred fifty thousand after you take the risk of putting up a million and so but now you've you've come into capital late business you have technology I therefore other people giving you money writing off have platform built you could be a licensor people could be using your business in the cloud and then all of a sudden you start getting revenues and that revenue you just seventy eighty ninety percent margin that's worth more than a earnings per share company without having put up the capital people finding some of these two so you can do it exactly so it's capital low interest rates the technology technology is making businesses grow faster because and and also it's it's making your costs be lower and then knowledge knowledge is growing the fastest pace than it's ever grown and it used to be one hundred years ago that knowledge doubled every hundred years and then after World War Two it was twenty five years and now it's every eighteen months and with the Internet of things going knowledge is going to double according to IBM every eight hours or twelve hours knowledge humankind but when when you look at our growth that we've seen to this point a lot of people say our economy is just stuck in a slower growth economy we're never going to be able to grow faster pace we've seen it pick up a little bit over the last several you ears but why isn't reflected in the numbers why isn't the economic growth stronger because you're right information technology all of these different ways of increasing our productivity are it's not reflected in government numbers right now people are afraid well you're in one of these the economy doesn't go like this it goes like this and and so the result to that whenever goes down people say this is it this is the end I better get out and so all these people watch remote show in the morning and everyone talks about well the stock market invested

"Coast. We're back with researcher and author Lisa. Appease her book a lie too big to fail. We'll tell you where you can pick this book up, especially those of you who are into this genre. Lisa I once knew as a reporter and individual. Who was probably the first person to say that he did not believe Sirhan Sirhan was the assassin of Robert F Kennedy. His name was Mt. Mohammadi, any lived in New York, and he was running it agency for Palestinian rights, and, you know, initially when he first said that I'm going come on. Then you know, like, you the more I investigated the more. I heard things it just things just didn't make sense. And then when I interviewed William pepper. You know, I it made even more sense that there was something very strange going on here. What do you think? And then we'll get into calls the motivation was to assassinate Robert F Kennedy. Why did they want him out? Yeah. I think they wanted him out for the same reasons. Again, I think people to Kennedy out if you zoom away out at its core. The Kennedy brothers stood for cooperation with other nations. Whereas, for example, the Dulles brothers who ran both the over and covert foreign policy of the US for eight years together. I one dollars and John Foster Dulles. They believed in US should dominate the rest of the world not cooperate. And they hated Kennedy Kennedy, right. Kennedy bopped one out of the CIA didn't he? Yeah. Kennedy Allen Dulles on the side of the little guy. It's like he understood that all these nations that were having their own little communist revolutions. He knew it wasn't about communism was about independence and nationalism independence from the global empire. Empire powers. You know, rebelling against the British government for decades of domination and so on and so he supported that. He's Portland Mumba in the Congo. Which is why the rush to kill him before Kennedy took the oath of office. So that you know, 'cause they what about what about DM in in Vietnam. Right, right. Think I was told Kennedy was in shock when he heard that the had been assassinated rise, and she was trying very hard to prevent that. Because he somehow naively thought that you could overthrow government and not kill somebody because you know, they were trying to remove him, and he did feel some guilt towards that. But it's. Overall. He was trying to find ways to cooperate lake Sukarno in Indonesia, yet, another leader who was overthrown and soon as you know, the Kennedys were out of office in nineteen sixty five the CI foments a fake to and then supports the counter coup. That's supposed to be there to protect the cargo. But in fact, out Sukarno, and this was happening all over the globe. In fact, there's a wonderful book thy will be done by Jared Colby in Charlotte Bennett and one of their sections is called something. Like, oh, I can't even remember the, but it's like every liberal every leftist leader in the hemisphere was taken out in a very short period of time. And if the Kennedys were not taken out, they would have been the anomaly because every other one had to go, you know, as our Benz in Guatemala, and the guy Goulart in Brazil, and then and I'm not talking again, these are communists. These are just ordinary. Kyle liberal leaders who weren't right wing Fash. Dictators. And that's the really had thing is that we looked like in Iran. Look, what a mess they've become and they were a democratic form of government. They were a secular society until we in the British join forces to overthrow most exactly they'd become this fundamentalist wreck of a country policies to your onions. I'm not trying to criticize. But it's like, it's partly our fault. And look at this caravan of immigrants coming from Latin America will why are they coming here because we overthrew their their, you know, fairly normal leaders and put in these right wing people who are very friendly to the business communities at the expense of the ordinary citizens and a lot of these countries, and they got poorer and poorer to the point where they look to the rich neighbors to the north and say, we want that you know, we've been very good at selling the American dream. You know, come to American, you know, the poorest man can become a rich person. And and but in any case the. Kennedy's didn't believe in enslaving other nations. They didn't believe in that. They they really tried to promote fairness, and that was threatening to a lot of the big business interests across the country. And and who does the CI and the military serve they serve these big business interests. You know, there's no point in the I mean, what's his name the guy who tried over or prevented the overthrow of FDR. Smedley Butler in in the Marine Corps back in the early part of the last century. He said war is a racket. You know, here we are defending oil companies. You know, we're not really defending people were defending property, and it really offended him because he's like people are dying for this. And we shouldn't be here just to defend an oil pipeline or something, and he was very upset about that. And and again as where the Kennedys, which is why they didn't want us to get to embroiled in Vietnam. And I know Chomsky disagrees. I even had an Email exchange with Chomsky years ago about this. But all the records in the evidence that have come out over the last few years. Kennedy was hell bent on getting us out of Vietnam. He knew it was not winnable and Robert Kennedy new wasn't winnable and Robert Kennedy admitted like there was a point where he kinda thought it was and that he was totally wrong. He admitted that while he was living. He's like we should never have gone in. We should never have been there at all. And it's not our fight. We gotta get out as fast as we. Can. And he was anti-war till the day. He died Martin Luther King killed, you know, just a couple of months before Robert Kennedy in that same horrible year of nineteen sixty eight also killed a year to the day after his amateur. Let me ask you a question about Robert Kennedy junior who's been on our program before. And I I've been told mentions you in his latest book American values. Tell me about that. Yes. Yes. David Talbot, the founder of salon and the author of a great book on Allen Dulles called the devil's chaplain. He's been on he's been on our program many times. Good good. Well, I'll bet wanted me to talk to Bobby Kennedy about something that he was interested in. He's like who would know about this. I'm like, I do give them to me. I wanna talk to him. And I was so excited to meet a member of the Kennedy family after having studied their lives, and that's for so many years. And so you had me overdue his house. He's he's now living out on the west coast because his wife, you know, has a real job in Hollywood and aids vaccines. He hates vaccines. He's he's just to be clear because a lot of people. I think oversimplify that he doesn't hate vaccines. He hates toxic metals in vaccines, given a little kids who wall which are in vaccines. Right. But that doesn't. Mean you're anti vaccine because there are vaccines that are heavy metal let free, and that's a totally different. Unfortunately, not enough. I do feel one of the biggest problem CC, America's that we tend to think in binary terms, somebody's either pro this or anti this. And we missed the nuance. That makes all the difference as we go to calls where do we get your book ally too big to fail? You can get it on Amazon supposedly, you can get it in Barnes and noble, although I've yet to see it on the shelves that but it is.
