Will America Return to the Fundamentals?
"Boomer generation of which I am a member. Grew up in an America that was obviously had issues. No society in history has not had issues. I mean, obviously in the 60s, Kennedy assassination, the Vietnam War, by the end of the 60s, Martin Luther King assassination Robert Kennedy, what year was Robert Kennedy assassinated? Was he in the 60s as well? I think so. I mean, there were a lot of the watts riots. When would the watts riots also 60s? So believe me, they were issues. But the fundamental American society was holding very strong. And then gradually dissolved. Beginning with honoring of parents, don't trust anyone over 30, that was the motto of the dissolution of the traditional America. But gave people on the 2030s, 40s, 50s in the United States peace, for the most part. Not for everybody.

"Garland. I wonder the Democrats. Desperately wanted him on the United States Supreme Court. He's not a moderate, He's not thoughtful. He's not reasonable. Is another one of them. Them. Radical. I want you to know what he's doing. We have the head of the Civil rights division of the Justice Department who is a flat out her name is Clark as I recall flat out racist, she said, and written some of the most unbelievable stuff. I think Susan Collins voted for confirmation to but nonetheless, there she is. And having secured that position. At the request of Biden and this attorney general. What's happening now? According to Yahoo News, John Ward. Attorney General Merrick Garland. Said that the Department of Justice will dramatically increase its focus on preventing voter suppression. Now you have to understand something. Voter suppression for the Democrat party means what Means state legislatures having rational voting systems in place. Not anarchy. So he's going to increase its focus on preventing voter suppression by doubling the number of lawyers in the civil rights division. In response to a rash of lawsuits or look Excuse me. Laws that have been made made it harder to vote in many states. Now you have to understand how lousy the media Made it harder to vote in many states. So if I want to leave Virginia and vote in, say, Maryland and they say you can't because I'm not a citizen of Maryland. You see, Maryland has just made it harder for me to vote in Maryland. Mr. Producer you understand? It's just disgusting. Our media have really killed this country. We will use all existing provisions to ensure that we protect every qualified Americans seeking to participate in our democracy, Garland said in one of his Castro like speeches Garland compared his action to that taken by former Attorney General Robert Kennedy, who said the Justice Department needed a lot more lawyers to combat laws and said says nothing to do. With what Robert Kennedy had to do during segregation. This is so outrageously disgusting. They're going to double the lawyers and the civil rights division and unleash them on our country. Harass the state legislatures try and push this H R one s one into law, forcing states to adopt them. Because Congress couldn't pass it. That is exactly what's going on here.

"Martin Luther King dedicated his life to love and to justice between fellow human beings. He died in the cause of that effort. Some people urged him not to speak. Didn't particularly the police in Indianapolis were hoping that Senator Kennedy could be prevailed upon to not come from the airport. He had just flown in. It was John Lewis, Future congressman icon of the movement. Who said No, these people are here. They need their leader. They've lost one leader. And of course, the point, innit Overhang of that evening is that Two months, and two days later, Robert Kennedy would be gunned down in Los Angeles. It's a very eloquent address that he obviously give spontaneously. Then, at one point, he says, My brother was also shot. By a white man. In these times is a trickier to say that to suggest that John F. Kennedy was somehow brought down by the same kind of bigotry that Martin Luther King was. Is complicated now, and it was complicated. Then one of the many things we lost the ambassador hotel in June of 1968. Was a political figure, a white man who had experienced something of the pain that black Americans had experienced by losing his brother to an assassin. And you know that speech in Indianapolis really ends on this note from the Greeks from S Colas. That pain is inevitable. And the question we have to face is what do we do with that pain and R F case plea to that audience. Was to rise above their hate and try to love which is what Dr King had lived that in fact, the country is stronger and better. The more just and the more fair. It is for all I'm asking about another speech, Barbara Jordan, keynote of the 1976 Democratic National Convention. She said The difference between other previous democratic conventions was right in front of them Black woman Delivering the keynote speech. I feel that not withstanding the past that my presence here is one additional bit of evidence. That the American dream need not forever be deferred a very powerful speech. And, interestingly, when you hear it now, days it was not as political as the standards of a political convention might be. Is a powerful document. I urge folks to go to go read it. It was six days after the bicentennial of the United States after the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Who's Monday? July, 12 1976. Barbara Jordan was from a family of Baptist ministers or grandfather is hugely important to her. She was the first black woman in the Texas State Senate. She was the American story and what she speaks to in that speech is I am the embodiment. Of the promise of the declaration when in fact we live up to the full implications of that promise. Let me ask you about a Ronald Reagan's speech this one his farewell address from the Oval Office. 1989 none of this. Your favorite president, or I hear they like me. This is what he said. I wasn't a great communicator, but I communicated great things. And they didn't spring full bloom from my brow. They came from the heart of a great nation. From our experience, our wisdom and our belief in the principles that have guided us for two centuries there. You struck by the fact that the landscape of the world had changed in so many ways with the collapse of the USSR. Which President Reagan noted he didn't take credit for it didn't gloat over it. On the contrary. To me the most remarkable line in that speech, and it tells you everything you need to know about the Republican Party in the 21st century. Is President Reagan said that he had always thought of the Shining City on a hill, the line from Jesus and John Winthrop that only Ronald Reagan could improve upon. They said city upon a hill, he added, shining, but he said that he wanted it to be a place where all the lost pilgrims from all the loss places. Who are hurtling through the darkness toward home would find arrest in a refuge and in 1989, a Republican president could still talk about A big hearted, big tent conservatism. Some people think that's an oxymoron. But this is a big, complicated country. And can you imagine a world where A single presidential candidate would carry 49 states what she did in 94. You know, at Christmas, they asked him what he wanted for Christmas in 1984, he said Minnesota The first person pronoun the point you make. Scott is exactly right. It wasn't about. I want praise. Getting quality in great public speeches. That you find runs through all of them. The capacity to Bring the many into conversation with the few. It really is about. We, the people more than I the person, the speaker. And to be lifted as one as opposed to one person being elevated above everyone else, I think tends to be a characteristic Of oratory that endures because that's at its best. That's the American message that endures John Matron, his new podcast. It was said, Thank you.
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

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

"My name is Robert Kennedy and I work as is a freelance creative running my own design studio in Munich. 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. All talk doesn't and even either net or just up and so that was my life just spending time reading macworld magazine just thumbing through things and seeing all I need router. That's that's what a router does so our own. It person delivery boy. I was the designer the art director every role that had to be fulfilled. I did them all all. So we're talking about some serious nights. And just like ECO. You said there were nights when I was literally tending the rendering because it took so long to render back in the day computers were not fast enough and I would just wake up a couple hours. Check the rendering and fall asleep on the floor next to my computer it was pretty rough and that that was the hustle grind

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 the United States so the price of gasoline shot up in this country then came the rationing then came the endless lines at the pump then eventually came this very angry man in Queens we call up a young professor who was working on his first book about Recessions Professors Todd New of Cornell College Hello Todd everything in this country that touches gasoline has gotten more expensive which is everything and as a result these shocks have greatly increased the cost the production that greatly increase the cost of doing business and so it's not the fact that people aren't willing to buy it's fact that firms aren't producing like they used to particularly they're not willing to produce at the same prices that they were producing before now as we twist this actual fast Ah American gas tank

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

"ABC CBS NBC that was about it CNN. I don't think was even a. Blink on the horizon just yet. Well, that's back when journalism journalists used to do journalism, and it didn't care what they didn't care. What party you were from. If you were doing things that were untoward. They were going to do a story about you. And let's take you back to nineteen eighty-seven. The story from NBC, not sure who the reporter was, but it's about Joe Biden. Syracuse law school Biden was involved in a plagiarism incident, he quoted five pages of someone else's work without proper citation. He was given an F, but appealed for the faculty and allowed to repeat, the course he got to be his comes in the middle of another controversy about plagiarism inviting campaign politics. He dismissed charges that he routinely adopts phrases from other politicians speeches called much ado, about nothing, essentially, Biden said, everyone, does the notion that every thought or notion or idea, you'd have to go back and find an attribute to someone I think, is quite frankly, ludicrous, to the political community in Washington, it all seems of a piece, plagiarism at law school plagiarism on the stump, for example. But this standard is not a measure of how we can evaluate the condition of our society. Cannot measure the health of our children. Quality of our education, the joy of their play, this is how it sounded when Robert Kennedy, said those words.

Right. Turns in the motor cater prohibited. I it is very clear. Now, we think we understand why the the director of the secret service fella named Rowley is the first man who bounds up the steps at Andrews Air Force base to embrace new president Lyndon. Baines Johnson turns out Mr. rally is a is a former deputy Jaeger Hoover. And a man who got his first job in government from congressman Lyndon Baines Johnson. So attorney general Robert Kennedy stays under Lyndon Johnson. He must have hated that. Well, he staged very briefly. In essence Johnson makes nNcholas him back. The acting attorney general people often ask me is I've talked about my book the minute maid who killed Kennedy. Why Bobby didn't blow the whistle on this? And it's a very simple solution. Who would have believed him Johnson Controls the FBI Johnson Controls? The Dallas police Johnson has the year of the of the media the stories into his corruption are immediately spiked and never appear. Again, Robert Kennedy knew that the only way he could uncover the true murderer brother was by becoming president himself, and then controlling the federal machinery in essence Hoover controls, the clean up the cover up from the from the gecko. Tire investigation is done in five days, and he wraps up about. Now, the Warren commission is kind of forced to reach the same conclusions. That that the FBI has already reached in their published report. And America was never the same. Roger after that. We've never been the same. Have we? Well, it's it's it is a chain reaction of events. In other words, the the bay of pigs begets the Kennedy assassination. The the Kennedy the Kennedy assassination, begets Watergate. These are all interrelated L A events of history. And mean, this is why four of the Watergate burglars. Our president at the bay of pigs the same four who are in Dealey plaza. How incredibly convenient? These things don't happen by chance. Do they? So there I I believe they're all at this juncture completely interconnected. But my book is also a it's a portrait of Lyndon Johnson. Because he is nothing like the public image that he tries to portray. I mean, he is a he is a an abusive amoral crude vicious loud mouth bully. He is Popper of pills in a in a vicious drunk. He is a notorious womanizer he's a physical coward. He's a sadist. This is a man who conducts White House staff meetings while sitting on the toilet watch. And he and he did that not just to be crude, but he enjoyed the discomfort that it caused all these young Ivy league can the age that he had inherited surrounding him. I mean, it's it's really extrordinary. He was on the toilet in. These people were around him. Yes. She would he would he would conduct an actual meetings while he was defecating. You've gotta be kidding me. Roger Lyndon Johnson was a very crude fellow. And he is a notorious womanizer at one point there's at least five women in the secretarial pool. Of course Kennedy was to right now. I look I think it goes with the power profile. Look, I joined Eisenhower was getting a little on this. I'm beginning to think that comes with the now Reagan was pretty straight though. Well, yes, and no Reagan was married to Jane Wyman. And then after Jane Wyman, divorced him. He went on a tear in which he it virtually every great looking woman in Hollywood. The president then he was single point. And then when he when he meets Nancy Davis, and he gets married. I think he is forever. A faithful husband, but this guy Torry it up when he and his wild wild. I mean, Marilyn Monroe, Linda Turner, Betty Grable, you name it and. Got there. All right. Let's take some calls for the rest of the hour that we've got you here. Let's go to John in Sheridan, Wyoming to get things started, John. Go ahead. Thank you, George another great show. Thank you. If if you will permit me let me give three quick things that'll help Mr. stones when Bill Clinton in nineteen ninety four was president. He allowed Westinghouse to sell two nuclear reactors to North Korea from which they've been extracting blue Tonia and from which they've been making nuclear weapons the second item in a sixty minutes. CBS sixty minutes interview, just a few years ago, they were interviewing both Bill and Hillary and for whatever reason instead of on a soft. So they had him sitting on these high wooden barstools and in the middle of the interview a studio light exploded behind Bill and Hillary they both immediately leaped up their their feet. And I remember Hillary claims that she's battle-tested well when Hillary leapt to her. Feet. She screamed at the top of a voice Jesus Joseph, and Mary and then wild Bill was standing she jumped into his lap. And she was winding and shivering in crying and boo. Boo. Hoo. Like that like a walking through the cemetery at midnight. And the third item is when Hillary was working as an attorney they showed this. It's an audiotape. They played it on Fox News late last year, she knowingly acquitted a man who had raped a woman on a legal technicality. She got him acquitted, then she called her friend, and she was laughing about it and cackling about it that she had gotten her rapist client off the hook on a legal technicality and so much for the myth of Hillary being the women's candidate. Wow. To react to any of that. Well that last incident is very well covered in my book. She's absolutely absolutely right. You're absolutely right. She laughs about the fact that that her client passed a lie detector tests, which she says made her forever doubt, lie detector tests. So she knows he's guilty. This is this is a Hillary Clinton is nothing like her public image. She is a mean-spirited angry vicious loud. Mouth foul mouthed, short tempered, very greedy, very dominant. Very abrasive and abusive. She has a mouth on her like a sailor. This is something else that I have some of the greatest things in my book, most of them entail. The f word and she could end up being our president. If people knew the real Hillary, and her epic greed. I mean, look the Clinton foundation is not a charity. It's a slush fund for there's it's a vehicle for the facilitation of multi million dollar bribes. If you wanted to change in foreign policy, if you wanted to get rid of Qaddafi, or if you wanted the approval of an arms dealer, if you wanted to major defense contract matter what you wanted you could buy it from Bill and Hillary you had to grease the Clinton foundation, you had to Greece the Clintons personally in the form of these speech honorariums mean, Goldman Sachs, a build out Bank event that we bailed out with.

"Spectrum disorder. Only medications that can help some function better. We know the decades of medical research has also consistently shown there is no link no link between vaccines autism. Despite what Robert Kennedy, jR, say. So last week, and I didn't know about it. But I just found out about it. Amazon announced removing books and then Facebook. In what can only be called a major blow. Refuting any connection between autism and vaccines. Facebook announced it will crack down on the proliferation of vaccine this information on its platform Facebook said late last week. That it will reduce the ranking of groups and pages that spread false or misleading information about vaccines in its news feed and search engine, and it will remove such pages from search recommendations and predictions, by the way, the company also indicated announced that it will reject advertisements that fall within this realm. And eliminate advertisers access to targeting options like vaccine controversies. And they made a statement about this, Monaco blacker. Facebook's vice president for global policy and management said this. Leading global health organizations such as the world World Health Organization in the US centers for disease control and prevention have publicly identified verifiable vaccine hoaxes, if these vaccine hoaxes appear on Facebook, we will take action against them. Question. First of all. Oh, people who have autism. I do in one family two out of four children have autism. Do you know people on the autism spectrum? I do. Including my nephew. I want to ask this question. Do you believe that vaccines cause autism? Would you not have your children get the three RS shot? And more than that. I want to know what you think of Amazon and Facebook, essentially. Taking a stand and saying they will not allow the promotion. Of that literature. Which says the vaccine cause autism. Four one five eight zero zero eight ten. By the way, I had no hesitation or did my wife giving our children the necessary inaugurations. In fact, you may know about the measles outbreak. It's taking place particularly in southern California. A lot of you. Listen to me in southern California. There's a measles outbreak because parents are declining to get the measles vaccination. Heck when my kids had the chicken, pox vaccination. There are a lot of people say what are you doing? Thank God they did. And by the way, I just had as did my wife the double vaccination. That we now use to prevent shingles. And a lot of people tell me, what are you doing? Four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten Amazon and Facebook taking action in order to prevent the spread of more information denying. Or affirming if you will. That vaccines cause autism and denying them access to their networks. If you know somebody who has autism. If you have somebody in your family who has suffered this debilitating condition. How do you feel about this should Facebook and Amazon be able to take those kinds of actions. And by the way. How many other actions might they take? To prevent the distribution of material that may be fake or phony, and I can Google lot of things that are fake and phony that are on Amazon and on Facebook. Four one five eight zero eight zero eight Tim let me go to grace who is calling from Livermore grace. Thank you for your call. Welcome to k- GO. Thank you for taking my call. I think it's terrible that they're taking all the information. There's you can't be one sided and just promote one side another thing where the government it's important. If you're pro or anti vaccines, not to allow the government to have injections by force. This is not the government, of course, Roman Facebook, and Amazon, but if you're saying that you can't go to school or a lot of districts are saying if you don't have the vaccinations don't come to school, right? Well, also, they're also trying to force a medical procedure by two they're trying to pass as we speak to force medical vision Jackson's on people, I think that's wrong. Well, what about the what about the measles vaccine? We now have outbreaks around the country of measles where measles didn't have a problem because people are declining to have the measles vaccine is they believe the myth of the vaccine is a problem. You know, how many people are infected with measles yet too many and in southern California the problem they're having is that because people are declining to have the vaccination. There are more and more cases emerging and. Yeah. I believe there was thirty five people that were infected with measles. Or was it the chicken pox? I'm not sure which one it is one hundred and twenty eight measles cases in twelve states. That's what the CDC is reporting one day ago. Okay. And and most of them are people that have been. That have had the vaccine. Well, let me just indicate you New York state is facing one of its most severe mutual outbreaks in decades, and the parents forty two children affected by the ban are having to have it or saying they don't want to have it. And you know, what the the schools are saying. They can't come to school. And that was affirmed by a federal judge judge Vincent Briquet who said the parents failed to prove the public interests ways in favor of granting injunction. So the simple truth is without that vaccine. There's a real problem. Well, how many people have died not very many? I don't think anyone has died. I had the measles chickenpox. And most of these people that are out that having the outbreak, but people that have been injected. It's no, no, no, no, no. That's not correct. That's not correct. That's the problem. There are a lot of shall we? Call it myth information. But let me ask you this. If your kids were in school, and parents declined to have the measles shot. Would you think those children who have not had the shot ought to be able to go to school? Absolutely. And you're not worried that unvaccinated children could be exposed to me's and other public places and that would then spread the disease at their schools. Not deadly. Let me tell you something it can be if can be, and that's the reason why there's a vaccine that I'm gonna tell you what I don't. If I may. The thing. And I agree with you with a lot of things that you're saying. But I think there's a lot of misinformation on both ends. So you're against your against vaccines. Yes. I am. Okay. Well, what's kept some counter here? And I appreciate your call. And you and I will disagree. But let's point out. We're disagreeing agreeable. Okay. The only thing. Yes. Absolutely. The only thing is I don't think people should be forced to do this measles and chicken pox, when I was young everybody had them, and that that makes your immune system. Both stop. Let me let me just remind you that twenty eight percent of children younger than five years old who had measles had to be treated in the hospital, and you should know that measles can lead to pneumonia. Serious lung infection. And that's the reason why they developed a vaccine, right? And the problem with that is that the vaccine the vaccines themselves causing more is. No, no. That is not correct. I I mean, I'm not a doctor, but I can tell you all the research. I've done indicates just the opposite. And that's part of the myth. But I appreciate the call. And I hope you'll keep listening four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten what do you think? I'm John Rothman right.

But I had a pet Turkey named Pablo which is Turkey in Spanish, and he broke my nose when he tried to a way after I was talking and kissing. Only you Ellen. I love it that after he Africa back. I had my nose fix, obviously. And then he died a natural death. And then I had impact determined and he lives at the bottom of my stairs in lily, Dale, New York, which of course, dead people are too should come into your radio show from Idaho. I know I really wanna do it there because I've read stories about it, you know, about it. And I am we're going to make that happen. I want to come and do that. I wanna do that for the listeners would love. And of course, then you can meet Pablo. I I like it. We're gonna make it happen. I promise you that's going to be my twenty nineteen. So we're going to do that. So in Washington, the big story, but really reverberating outside of Washington is President Trump and the criticism of you know, the rare criticism of supreme court chief Justice John Roberts. And believe that Robert Kennedy. Well, what he basically said Robert Justice what Trump tweeted out back. In fact, there was a Obama judge and the ninth circuit that permit. Compare very very tough on migration cetera. So then John Roberts says we don't have. And he's the chief Justice was Republican was appointed by Republican. And he basically said, hey, we have Clinton charges. We don't have Bush judges. We don't have Obama judges. And we don't have Trump judges. We have just judges. And then President Trump tweeted out again. Yes, we do have judges that are one of those four. And I mean, this is just a war. You do not make war with the chief Justice seem state. Yeah. That was really surprising. I think we've seen the last of that. I mean, even you know Chuck Grassley tried to defend the president's saying, you know, why did Roberts rebuke Obama's remark. Why didn't he do that? He was trying to say he didn't do that before with Obama, and he made a comment, but I think that's much different. It is much different. And it's going to. I mean, this is to go down in the history books. Thanksgiving. But because nobody can believe that Roberts issued that statement. I mean, it was just unbelievable. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. I agree. And then how about this story? Then this other story that's getting a lot of attention is the president praising the Saudis for the low world oil prices. Oh my gosh. So as you know, he has just let the Saudis off the hook in terms thicker, show key Kelly. And. Basically, he said, listen, if we don't sell the Saudis things they're going to buy it from Russia and China that might be true. But as you remember, we have had former presidents like Carter who actually put human rights. I was roundly criticized for that. But President Trump is being criticized for not putting human rights at all in context. Yeah. Wow. I don't think we've heard the last of this whole Saudi thing either. This is just kind of a tipping point. There may be much more. That happens down the line only that and I'll tell you I was against of the Saudi Arabian government after nine eleven along with them up a talk show host, and they took us to a party on the Red Sea. I've never seen so much alcohol in my entire life. Drink it. Yeah. I've heard similar things. So that's not shocking to me. Let's put it that way. In the meantime, here's the big thing. Because there you are in in. New York City and so much conversation about the weather. What is the temperature like in the east coast is like what one degrading very very cold, very cold. Yeah. Not a great for parades. A not a and it's supposed to be very windy or the Macy's day parade. Very windy, and you know, we have seen balloons get blown about. But the wind is supposed to be staggering which would be just in a few hours. Wow. Crazy, and you and I talked about Nancy Pelosi. And now there's the story that Marcia fudge is not running to oppose Pelosi because that was. Title, Marcia fudge is a congresswoman from the great state of Ohio, which is where I'm from. And basically she met with Nancy Pelosi. She was going to run against her and then Pelosi has revived a committee on voting and she's putting Marcia fudge in charge. And Marcia fudge, Dan is not going to run against Nancy Pelosi. Now, Nancy Pelosi needs to hundred eighteen votes to be the speaker. She would just make it may be. But if she doesn't they're probably going to change it wolf. Wow. Crazy. Have a great thanksgiving holiday, and thanks so much Ellen. Thank you. All right, lily, Dale. It is in my future lily, Dale for those of you who don't know there's been documentaries on it on this this town, and it's an interesting place. It's the world's largest center for the religion of spiritualism. Basically, there's fifty mediums there. There's education and workshops on healing and personal growth and all kinds of things, and it was a place that was incorporated back in the late
