"And but right away, he knew how many Tia Capital I mean, come on, now. You my pills in one way, man. What? What? Let me excuse me. 95% of trumping all the networks said that it's it's not both ways. Right? No, it is both ways 100%. But now I never will never agree with you that point that the Republicans are Jesus and the Democrats of our Satan. I will never believe that. That's not the truth. You know, the Democrats are helping people come over the border of the Catholic Church. How can you say the Republicans is Jesus on the other side is if you were just saying a minute ago, you can't go. One side or the other house for us, his violence up one off. There's a saying, my men once a communist, always a communist, the Chinese, they're pulling this crap. Everybody is aware of it. The lady out there by these houses in California, representing up B L am I mean she's developed Communist And they're wondering why everything's going to hell in a handbasket. Work. Um, why? Why do you think? Why do you think everything's going to hell in a hand basket because you have said that everybody said that. What do you want to think? It's not going to hell in a hand basket won't be going right for me. But life is still pretty similar. I mean, you know, not not too much has changed outside of it. If you take away the pandemic, life hasn't really changed. People's lives are very similar, hasn't changed, but Donald Trump in his rhetoric. Is causing all the violence in the United States. They were saying that for the last four years he was tried. You want between you don't now. Where's trump? That? Not with all this violence, scorn all over the country. Wait, wait, wait. Wait for all this trouble question. Wait, wait, Damn! Buy it. Will you be quiet? You're not letting me told me chance. Give me a chance to speak there. God, but, uh I'm Dean. You wanted me. You asked for my take on Donald Trump. And I want to give it you want to hear it? All right. All right, so in my opinion, the first being pattern, but it's basically the same age and the first president that both of us voted for Ronald Reagan. All right, and You know, And so, Yeah, I was I was I voted for Ronald Reagan. And I'll tell you the reason why, even though I'm a Democrat now Ronald Reagan wasn't about policy. He was He was a guy that brought people together. He didn't He didn't create divisiveness. Republicans like to say. Oh, you voted for buying Trump made, if you mean tweets, and I'm like a few mean tweets between it mean tweets every day you don't want. You don't want a president who's causing people to fight. I'd rather have you over for a beer, then the fight with you. Honestly, I'm not. I'm serious about that. I don't need a president causing us to fight. You know, Ronald Reagan didn't do that. Ronald Reagan told you know convinced everybody that Hey, you gotta not. You might not agree with my policy. But we're on the same page. Let's just talk about it and see, you know, maybe try it. You know, like I'll give an example when, when, when? When they started talking about trickle down economics. I was a business major in college, and we started talking about it. I liked Ronald Reagan and I liked what he stood for. But I wasn't I was I was skeptical of trickle down economics, and I still am, you know, and but we would discuss it. We had to discuss him. We didn't fight over it. It was it was. It was policy that people discuss. Could this be right Could be wrong. Maybe we should do this. Maybe we should do that. Let's give it a try would happen. Donald Trump didn't do that. He created people. They made people fight. He called people names He called Piggy, You know, so even if his policies were good, I don't care if his policies were right. Has nothing to do with it. If you haven't let me ask show, can I get your point there, guy? What if you're a president, United States and 95% of the media coverage is against you. He would make you a little bit upset about things. What did not present the United States. You gotta figure out how to bring the people together, not divide them, and that's what Trump did. And that's what that That's what I don't. That's what I object to this 20 Republicans that I don't object Do you know? Because they're not like that Trump provided people. Hey, look. Ah, lot of my friends and me but had thoughts like a Maybe a businessman would be really good for as President, United States. Maybe that's what we need a businessman as President Seo. To turn things around. It turns out in my opinion, others just my opinion. It turns out that screw that I want somebody that's going to make people feel good about being American and feel go shopping together, not create somebody's just gonna make the United States better. Yeah, I'm just gonna make things better. And that starts with me and you not fighting. It starts with me and you wanted to go have a beer together. Not fighting over. Yeah, democratic rhetoric. We're allowed to expand on these different issues, something that's the market just got word from that $95 negatives like this gun that they want a guy got to play with one against him. What they want. They were against him from from that one. That may be true. But, Billy, I pray we appreciate your call. We're going because we have only a few more minutes left to trade it back.

With wide open doors with pandemic China religion, A pandemic on the world and the United States was this totally destroyed. Every nation round. We have blacks isn't black Buddy City down after they looted and this guy say was pretty much normal, just nuts. Well, you know, it's it's you know, it's thinking like that, because most black people aren't doing that. So you're just you're do you think all black people are doing that? This is not true that Zach is inundated by 99%. She was sold to that. I mean, they have jobs and they support their families. And then they just want to live normal lives. And you know the news. The media on both. You don't have normalized by looting stores, and it burned to the ground. Are you in there, but just races. If you think it's all black people, that's racist itself. When it isn't you have the rest. Coast agitators. You have always the idiot Marxist college graduates going in and tell them what to do, and they're going and they have been toughing years. The hate America they've been in the schools. Who hate themselves hate each other. And, most importantly, hate America stayed in teaching around 16 life. Well, thanks for the call. We appreciate it. You know, we got Christopher on hold. Hey, Chris. How you doing? Welcome to the show. Happening, guys. May doing today and listening to the insanity.

I had never seen gas and a dollar 89 or whatever was so I mean, just people going to work. When you drive through Kansas, Missouri places that we fly over. We just go through. Don't think twice right? There's people that lived there and they have livelihood stay in homes. They have mortgages. And They're doing very well. And then these people who are working in the oil fields whatever. What do you like? What do you say to those people? They're human beings, And now they have the work where they're gonna go where they're gonna work. You know, the economy's in the common economy is going in an upward direction.

OPEC's always controlled with the price of guises. And now you have been controlling. You know, there's a cold get from how much does it cost to get gas out of the ground? Even in the United States?.
Republicans Work to Rebrand GOP as Party of Working Class
"Donald trump brought more working class voters into the republican party than any other president since ronald reagan now. Republicans are trying to figure out how to keep them. The working class vote will be crucial in next year's midterms. Here's npr congressional correspondent. Susan davis in the last decade. The biggest growth in the republican coalition has been white voters without a college degree along with some growth with similarly educated black and hispanic voters. that's why republicans. Like indiana congressman. Jim banks believe the only winning path forward for the gop is to fully reimagined itself as the party of the working class and if republicans want to be successful as a party when the majority in twenty twenty two win back the white house and twenty twenty four. I think we have to learn lessons that donald trump taught us now to appeal to these voters. Banks is the chairman of the republican study committee but conservative faction in the house. long rooted. in small government low taxes and social conservatism. He recently sent a six page memo to house. Minority leader kevin mccarthy making the case that republicans need to refocus their agenda. Almost entirely on working class appeals for banks. This means tougher immigration laws cracking down on china big tech and perhaps most provocatively for republicans corporate america for too long the republican party said into the narratives that republican party was party of business or the party of wall street. Republicans are increasingly comfortable attacking corporations these days. That's a lot easier for them. After wall street donors gave more to joe biden. Major companies halted political donations to republicans who objected to electoral college results on january six and is companies take more liberal positions on controversial issues like georgia's new voting law senate minority leader mitch. Mcconnell last week issued a rare verbal rebuke of companies that oppose the law. Warning if you will to corporate america's to stay out of politics. It's not what you're designed for.

I have long heard that. Ronald reagan was the greatest president of the modern era but made his presidency so strong. What exactly is his legs legacy well. Congratulations you win. A signed copy of the mag doctrine ronald. Reagan is one of the greatest presidents in american history. Ronald reagan brought america from a dark place under the presidency of jimmy carter a one term presidency from nineteen seventy six nineteen eighty to a place of optimism. Hope and american renewal. Ronald reagan was born in tampico illinois. Spent a lot of time in eureka. Illinois was a democrat. Use an actor. He actually is an actor in a very famous film called bedtime for bonzo.

Who was the incumbent president who took over from the resigning richard. Nixon made rockerfeller his vice president. I believe and then lost in a reelection bid to jimmy carter southern democrat and then ronald reagan righted that wrong after awful economic conditions. You think interest rates are troublesome. Now when ronald reagan was running for the presidency eighteen percent interest rates eighteen percent he defeated jimmy carter interest rates. Went down the economy was reborn. But more than anything else. Ronald should be known for not just restoring the american spirit. Not just expanding. The republican party be a working persons party and democrats but he defeated soviet communism without ever firing shot. He defeated soviet communism because he framed it the logical debate.

Yeah, When we tell you that the Communists have invaded the highest levels of the federal government, we're not. That's not like just a thing. We say it's not an exaggeration that really did take place. It's clear to me that the world needs our explanation on stuff because people are getting real confused about how Crap supposed to work.

Biden Expresses Support for Amazon Union Vote in Alabama: ‘Make Your Voice Heard’
"Never heard any full-throated support From from barack obama when it came to unions in recall that when democrats took the senate in two thousand eight one of the things that they had promised was a vote in a passage of card check which was basically simplified the process in which people could vote for a union that they could simply just put in a request and if enough members of a workplace put in a request for a union. You'd get a union. You wouldn't have an extended period of time which invariably house employers to deploy a in the case of amazon. Let's say just take for example In this Attempt to unionize in alabama twenty five million dollars and you talk the other day about some of the things they're doing. they literally got the city. Because union organizers can't talk to their fellow workers at the amazon facility whereas amazon can basically spend all day. Say hey today. Your job is just learning how bad unions are with these mythical. With these these mac. Captive audience meetings exactly and the in amazon. Actually got the city in bessemer alabama to change the timing telling us about this at the stop lights. So that unionized organizers could not go and actually help unionized or organized there. So there's a lot of things that the administration can do in terms of national labor relations board and whatnot and there's been some good moves by the biden administration that regard but one of the things that obama did was to use the bully pulpit and one of the things that he said that he appreciated about ronald reagan. Was that very thing. We just never saw him do it. Well joe biden doing now. Joe biden can do more. He could go down to alabama and actually like campaign for the union. But this is pretty. This is pretty important stuff. Because you know the union is going to use this clip and it's going to help yours joe biden. We're gonna play the full two minutes because it's actually pretty big deal. I've long said america wasn't built by wall street was built by the middle class and unions built the middle class. Unions put power in the hands of workers they level the playing field. They give you a stronger voice for your health. Your safety higher wages protection. Some racial discrimination sexual harassment unions lift up workers both union and nonunion and especially black and brown workers. I've made it clear. Made it clear when i was running. But my administration's policy would be to support unions organization organizing and the right to collectively bargain. I'm keeping that promise. You should all remember. The national labor relations act. Didn't just say the unions are allowed to exist. It said the union. we should encourage unions. So let me be really clear. It's not up to me to decide whether anyone join a union but let me be even more clear. It's not up to an employer. Decide that either. The choice to join a union is up to the workers. Full stop full. Stop today and over the next few days and weeks. Workers in alabama and all across america are voting on whether to organize a union in their workplace. This is vitally important. A vitally important choice. As america grapples with the deadly pandemic the economic crisis in the reckoning on race what it reveals the deep disparities still exist in our country and there should be no intimidation no coercion. No anti union propaganda. No supervisor no supervisors you confront employees about the union preferences. You know every worker should have a free and fair choice to join a union. The law guarantees that choice. And it's your right. Not that of employer at your right. No employer can take that right away so make your voice heard. God bless you all. May god protect workers and their families who are trying to figure out how to make it make it fairly thank

Bob Glazer on the Importance of Putting Principles & Values Over Issues & Rules
"Bob man. I'm so excited that you here. Welcome dose of leadership. thanks richard. i'm glad i may work. Yeah me too crazy times elections over. Yeah kobe's is ramping up. Thank god thank. God believes that i think i think so too. I think there's I don't know for me. I think i lean more libertarian. And conservative and i'm not a fan of one of them wasn't but i i don't know i think it's kind of a best case scenario. Most where you if you get a republican senate and you got biden in now people can have to work for it right so i'm kind of happy for inert administration mark forces people to have to compromise this sort of approach of like up. It's our way time to punish in. You know you know get reprimands for reagan for. It's like no one knows who started it. We're going to do this because you did i. I mean there's gotta be some things that everyone can can agree on. And yeah i agree. I hope i hope that Over works out that people will just start to come together a little bit. I mean someone was telling me that like ronald reagan. Won forty nine states was reminding me of that and i was like i. I would never happen in my lifetime again. Forty nine states and he did and I don't know you know i. It is funny. How who else not funny. But i mean we've all talked about nauseam. How how the divisive everything is. But i think is particularly talking leadership you know the the obligations that we have you know. We were talking pre recording. That i encourage because i got a pretty diverse mastermind group with all political spectrums. Kind of reminds me when i looked back at my parents. They had this circle of friends and almost all of them have passed away but they were all newly married in the late fifties early sixties. I mean you had you know. Jfk democrats you had richard nixon republicans. You had catholics yet. Protestants yet Jews and they all twelve six couples and they did live together with my point. They always played bridge when cards. They would get together once a month but they did live together and they would argue about politics and kind of ribbing sort of way but they loved each other and that's what seems to be missing in all of this right. I don't know how we can get back to that kind of ideal like where my parents in their friends where they didn't talk. Politics didn't rule their lives and it seems like politics. Lose everything right. I mean funny. In that case politics was probably knocked the threat right it was. Oh these are good decent hard-working people who share sharon values. And and and you know. I just think we're moving from look. Leadership is a very values based thing rang moving from you know values to sort of just hard lines that can't can't be cross And and yeah it to me. It's just we're just ruining objectivity and it's insulting people's intelligence it's like black and black white isn't wait. I don't mean in the racial sense. I mean we all used agree like that's a circle. That's where and now like these things are. Just you know it's a it's if if one side looking at it it's not a square and if the other side looking at it circle and i to me like critical thinking like a really important skill and it's just it's degrading or i don't know where it's going critical thinking certainly has suffered and I don't know. And i think back if you know looking back to when my parents were newly married like said in that kind of jfk era. Yeah i mean the you you mentioned values and principles and i think that's what's missing. There is a shared value. You know even if you were democrat or republican red or blue or whatever. The there was a hierarchy. Now simple low. They precipitate low it. That's right that that is that is. That's what's worrisome to me and look at massachusetts right so we were one of those one the state. that didn't vote for ronald reagan. Wherever pretty blu ray. We've republican governor right now with a eighty five percent approval rating like. He's done a really good job on covid he's been out in front. Like people are judging him on his on his merits. And what he's done. And i think if you know if we were in the you know we we got hurt early on but you know. He's a conservative also worked in the health industry so he had interesting balance like if we were one of the worst states in the country i think people would be more upset right and again that to me is out rightful leadership issue. Not a political issue in this notion of how leadership in politics have gotten. Totally intertwined is fascinates. Me i. it's it's interesting
Challenges Await Next Treasury Head
"Former federal reserve chair janet yellen has been at the forefront of us economic policy for decades. If she's confirmed as treasury secretary she'll be taking on a new role during a time of deep political division and significant economic challenges. Joining me now to talk more about yellen's career and the roadblocks she could face going forward his wall street journal senior writer john hills and wrath. Hi john thanks for being here her. They're great to be here. So john janet yellen if confirmed would make history here as the first woman to lead the treasury after also being the first woman to lead the federal reserve. Tell us more about her extensive resume and what's led up to this moment. I don't think that's the big history being made here. The big history is that she's the first human regardless of gender to be treasury secretary chairman of the council of economic advisers and federal reserve chairwoman. So she's had a tri factor. If you add in the fact that she's also a tenured professor from berkeley then. She's hit a grand slam. This is an achievement that no person regardless of gender has achieved and the realm of economic policy. Making you know. I compare her to george shultz the republican. Who served as secretary of state for ronald reagan and also treasury secretary secretary of labor and director of management budget under richard nixon. This is just a person with about as complete resumes. You can get so. Let's talk a little bit about her previous roles as opposed to what treasury secretary rigby much less political role than treasury secretary. What about her past experiences in washington have prepared her for that. And where might we see some challenges if for her taking on a more political role. The fed is a very close in academic place. They kind of pride themselves on not getting into the mix of political debates and being. I wouldn't even say bipartisan. But eighty partisan nonpartisan. Janet yellen did serve as the chair of the council of economic advisers in the clinton administration in the late nineteen ninety s so. She has had exposure to political debates with big personalities. It's interesting though. She's married to george echo off. Who is a nobel prize winning economist in his own right and when he won the nobel prize back in two thousand and one he wrote in his autobiography about the challenges that she faced kind of managing the point ical heat waves of washington the role. He played in supporting her so she's walking in to an environment right now. That is going to be very heated in very point ical. There's gonna be a lot of fights over how much spending the government should do to get the economy out of recession and how much debt it should take on in the process. And she's going to be right in the middle of it. She's a very highly credentialed individual. And i think our challenge is going to be managing the human part of it the political part of it with republicans on capitol hill and the inevitable divisions that are gonna show up inside the biden administration itself. How do you think she will work with congress. She has support among democrats and republicans. Well you know. She knows her way around washington. That's clear and as fed chair. She did have to deal with congress. She had to go up there and testify on a regular basis to give reports on the economy and monetary policy and regulatory policy. So she knows her way around capitol hill one of the reasons that i think that president elect biden chose her is a because it does seem like she's going to have buy in from the progressive wing of the democratic party. She's actually very close to elizabeth warren and also moderates among democrats and then i would say she has a chance with some moderate republicans to try to win them over republicans in the senate in particular to try to win them over on some big debates. And that's where. I think she's going to end up focusing a lot of her attention. You know if she can hold the democratic party if i should say biden can and then win a couple of middle of the road republicans than they might be able to get their way on really big questions about fiscal policy and stimulus and driving this economy out of recession. That was really devastating and twenty twenty and that brings us to some of the key challenges. What do you think some of her first actions will be treasury secretary. And what are those big challenges. She'll be facing from the start. There's so much and this is one of the issues where the job. The treasury is much different than the job at the fed. The job at the fed comes down to two or three things. They gotta make a decision. Every eight weeks about whether interest rates should stay the same or go up a little or go down a little. And then they've got to be they're very involved in the regulation and oversight of banks and then they've got to be ready to deal with crises financial crises at the treasure. You have the tax portfolio you have sanctioned portfolio with international sanctions against countries like north korea and iran. You have the debt portfolio. You have some say in the budget. Portfolio is just a very wide and expansive portfolio. I think the first thing that she's going to confront is a decision that her predecessor will have made. Steven mnuchin called on the fed just a few days ago to end some rescue programs that were aimed at small and medium-sized businesses related to corona virus. The treasury had been designated some money to contribute to the fed program and secretary mnuchin said. The program had expired in the feds gutter return. What's left of the money but you know the new treasury secretary is going to have to decide whether the end that program as mnuchin has set out to do or renew it when that gets to the bigger issue. which is the economy itself. Is it a major crossroads right now. We had a devastating downturn the economy effectively shut in march and april it reopened. We had a very large bounce back in the summer. But it shows signs of slowing. And it's incomplete this recovery at a time when the corona virus is spreading again. Some states are putting in new restrictions on economic activity and there is a race for a vaccine to control the virus. So there's just so much happening right now and it's gonna be yelling role to guide. President elect biden on how hard the government should push to help the economy through a period where it can go one of two directions. It could go back into recession. Or if we get to vaccine quickly enough we could be into. You know a really strong extension of the recovery that we had earlier this summer. So there's just a lot of uncertainty and a lot hard choices to

Could the West Los Angeles VA’s tent city be a model for bringing relief to LA’s unhoused?
"In Brentwood, and he spots something unusual. Ah, homeless encampment. That's not the unusual part Sadly. What is unusual, though, is the way this this encampment encampment looks. looks. Whole Whole sidewalk sidewalk was was taken taken up up by by a a line line of of identical identical tents. tents. Big Big tents tents and and pinned pinned to to the the outside outside of each one of those is an American flag. This is right outside the West L. A VA campus, The Veterans Administration campus if you're not familiar with it that is a huge gated property just west of the 405 federally owned healthcare compound for military vets. Run by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. Many of La's homeless veterans receive services there. To some folks actually stay on the sidewalk near by This eye catching encampment only popped up in the last few months. It's a road, 30 tents and all the tents were supposed to be a line. There also have flags on the left hand side. Dean leave is an army veteran. I served 86 through 89 under Ronald Reagan Problem. Five tonight Field artillery in Fort Carson, Colorado. Says PTSD from a sexual assault by another soldier led him to substance abuse and eventually homelessness. It's chaotic is living on the streets is, Dean says, This encampment has some military style order. We have a standard operating procedures. We have fire guard. We have security watches. A lot of veterans have a lot of different stories. Each one has their own individual. Sorry. One thing that many share is the feeling that being a veteran and being homeless is Well, you know, the saying adding insult to injury. Yeah, really gets you down your spirituality after serving the country and I'm not complaining, but by all means I haven't had a gratitude this long and water in the complaint list. The end of the day. You know, I didn't serve this country It hurts, And for some of the veterans here that hurt his coalesced around to cause what they see is decades of negligence when it comes to housing homeless vets. On the west L A. V, a campus. And in that respect, this encampment is meant to draw attention. We're standing our ground as a peaceful protest. Against what? Exactly, And why now? That story, it turns out is only the latest development in a much bigger saga, one that involves a prime piece of real estate, a corruption scandal a pandemic in the plan to pick up the pieces. KCR W's Anna Scott takes it from here. The story really begins. 133 years ago in 18 87. Hey, we told you it was a saga that year, a wealthy family donated the land That's now the campus with the stipulation that it had to serve as a home for military veterans. And for a long time it did at one point after the Korean War between four and 5000 veterans lived there. But by the 19 seventies, Thie started leasing out the property for all kinds of things. They maintained a hospital and other veterans services but brought in a dog Park Baseball stadium, even a parrot sanctuary at one point Meanwhile, many veterans lived on the streets. You know, in the military, you never leave a fallen comrade behind on the battlefield. Why would we leave them behind here on American soil? Bob Rose Brock is an Army veteran who lives in Brentwood. And every week for the past 12 years he's protested outside the gates of the West via dei. I met him there earlier this month. Today is our 648 consecutive Sunday and that's what we're trying to do is to get housing for our veterans. On the other side of that fence, where they belong. It was legally deeded. And we've got veteran sleeping on the sidewalk here. Now. Bob is not the only person to take on this issue. A decade ago, some homeless veteran sued VA. Officials over how the West campus was being used. Some of those non veteran related leases were deemed illegal and cancelled. The parrot Sanctuary has gone, for example. Leader. It turned out there was a bribery scheme going on at the campus, Another VA official and a guy who ran private parking lots there were sentenced to prison. In short, It was a big, ugly mess. But from the fallout came a new vision for the property. Four years ago, the unveiled a proposal to bring the campus back to its original mission and transform it into a community with more than 1600 new apartments for homeless veterans. So happy ending right?
Donald Trump is finished, but will 'Trumpism' prevail?
"It's been more than a week since the us presidential election joe biden of course has claimed victory whereas the president is yet to concede defeat but when donald trump eventually leaves office the question. We have to ask ourselves is is trumpism. Really finished after all the media conventional wisdom the new york times washington. Post the major networks. Cnn msnbc all that conventional wisdom is that the twenty twenty election represents a repudiation of trumpism and what's trump luckily to do after he leaves office well for more. Let's turn to patrick. J buchanan senior adviser to president reagan nixon and ronald reagan. Pat has been a regular fixture in america's opinion pages and cable television shows for generations. Ninety ninety two and ninety six pat buchanan ran for the presidential nomination of his party. The republican party on america first platform pass walking back to you between the lines. Good to your tom now. Let's start with the election itself to spotted trifecta of crises health economic racial the us congressional and presidential contests were very tight. How do you account for that. I think there were tight for this reason. The covid virus which hammered us in march and april and then all during the summer and full took the lodge. That's two hundred and thirty thousand americans and they induced an economic decline unrivalled since the great depression. And then you have to racial turmoil in the country. And the wake of the killing of george floyd in minneapolis riots. And and things like that. So he's really damaged trump in the eyes of the public and his administration and normally they would've killed any presidential candidate. But i will say that in the fall. When trump was further behind he basically one mechanic team won the battle against biden. It was surging at the end of the campaign but he did not get over the top or at least so far so i think what you can say is trump and trumpism won the campaign. They lost the election because of the burdens. They had to terry which were too happy to cross the finish line. And let's not forget that in the late up to the election the metric conventional wisdom the polls the pundits. They predicted a democratic sweep. A blue wave washing the republicans out of power capturing the senate and delivering an alleged democratic congressional majority if the democrats did indeed have a clean sweep of the congress and the white house what would radical progressive in the american takes. What would that have made if you had nancy. Pelosi in control of the house and chuck schumer and control. The should i which looks less and less likely now and preston biden into white house. Biden's problem would be the tremendous pressure from the progressive left wing of this party to impose his leftist agenda. The party home to the country in the first two years of his administration. And i think it would be virtually impossible biden to resist the democrats cheap to kill the filibuster. Which would eliminate the ability of the republicans to stop their agenda and we would be off to the races with medicare for all the green new deal statehood for puerto rico statehood for dc. Defunding the cops. Pack the supreme court the whole left wing democratic agenda. They would try to ram through with fifty one votes. In the senate and biden frankly would be restraining force because republicans wouldn't be able to do it if they lost the filibuster in the senate which is what. Barack obama urged the democrats to take away if they win the senate okay now bought and has pasta to sydney electoral college. Votes needed to win the white house now given that it's very hard to prove widespread electoral fraud pat. Why want trump just accept defeat. Here's trump is demanding that he be allowed to play out last play of the deal. Because i think he feels he has been treated horribly by the democrats and the liberals in the press and he's not gonna do them a favour. He's got a right to make sure. The counselor made and certain things happen by certain dates. He's not going to speed up the transition. It's not gonna be a pleasant transition at all. He's going to treat them the way they felt. They treated him when he came in with the russia investigation and all the rest of it. So i think what you're getting is. Trump is looking at upon this if it succeeds is a hostile takeover of the government of the united states. And he is acting to resisted with every legal constitutional weapon. He has so it's This is not a cordial country power at all. Okay but with dany. Before the nineteen sixty presidential election between richard nixon and john f kennedy. That was very taught. There was a lot of speculation about electoral fraud in texas and illinois. And that of course benefited. The democrats won that election now. Apologies for the very scratchy. Sound quality of these vintage news report from sixty years ago. but he's nixon. Your boss pat here. He is at four. Am at republican headquarters. After the election conceding. Defeat to and and results shows come in if the present trend continues If mr kennedy and senator kennedy will be the next president of the united states senators kennedy now. And i want you know that. Certainly this trend has continued and he does become our next president that he will have my. That's richard nixon conceding. Defeat john f. kennedy in nineteen sixty pat buchanan. Why can't trump do a nixon accept defeat graciously that at four am gathering. My wife was present. She worked for richard nixon and the nineteen sixty campaign and travel. The country would and the point is that was a different time in a different country. That america's today america's bitterly divided and one of the contributing factors is the is the belief correct in my view that donald trump was denied. Not only a good transition but donald trump was investigated by the fbi and during the transition. They went after his state of the fbi did and they had a two year investigation beach. Kim they try to defeat him then they tried to overthrow him. And i think trump feels this and he says i established nothing. They can go. I mean they can go too far as i'm concerned and we're going to run this old way out and make sure every ballot is counted and all the towns are accurate. And whether or not we're going to go to court and exercise our rights and we're not going to pretend otherwise that this is a pleasant for easy transfer of power this was a hostile takeover and trump's view. I mean they're campaign run against him former first lady. Michelle obama is already talking about the house and he could and racism and the rest endemic pain in what he come folks voted for. So i think look you gotta divided country and there's no sense pretending otherwise and trump is not gonna gauge any pretense.
HOw Has White Supremecy Changed In The US
"V Colorado US presidential election campaign which draws to a merciful conclusion. Four days from now has been such a circus that events which would have defined. Other contests have been swiftly forgotten among those wells the thwarting earlier this month of an apparent plot by far right still styled militiamen to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the subsequent discovery of links between those alleged conspirators and of the white supremacist groups. This is a cohort which has been repeatedly. Nodded and winked at from the highest pulpit in the land. These last four years. What happens in the next four? Whatever happens on Tuesday well earlier I spoke to Kathleen, Balu Assistant Professor of US history at the University of Chicago and offer of bringing the war home, the white power movement and paramilitary America I began by asking Kathleen how the white supremacist movement has changed between the nine, thousand, nine hundred, and now there's two differences in what's happening in the nineteen eighties and forward one is at the violence. This movement is interested in carrying out is explicitly anti-state they want to overthrow the federal government. So this is one of the reasons that I think white nationalist as a term can be confusing the nation and white nationalism nineteen eighty-three is not the united. States, it is the Irian Nation and they're imagining a fundamental overthrow of the country and all of its democratic practices. So the other thing that's different is that this movement is bringing together a lot of different people in every way but race, it is an. Incredibly, diverse social movement. We're talking about a whole bunch of different sub sections of white supremacists thinking. So this is the first time in the nineteen eighties. The we see a unification between clansmen, neo-nazis skinheads, radical tax resisters, posse comitatus members, and then in the early nineteen nineties, we start to see militia members in these groups as well. Now, all of that is emblematic of a movement that has taken a page from earlier. American. History. So it it it borrows from the opportunism of earlier clan mobilizations, but it's Very different in its deadly intent and in the number of people is able to bring together in this new set of sort of violent belief systems. If you consider its car numbers and its current firepower, how is impossible to quantify how dangerous these movements are obviously, we had seen in recent weeks the apparent thwarting of a plot to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer Michigan but is that an it's a depressing thought but is that likely a straw in the wind will there be more of that sort of thing not. Only will there be more, but that story is already proving to be more than it looked at first glance. There were reports today that members of the base, which is an underground paramilitary wide power group have been arrested in connection to that plot. So already, we're seeing cross group organization and were seeing how this is working in network much the way it did in the nineteen eighties. So one of the most important things that people can do a to understand what this is an to combat it is simply To connect these stories with one another, it's very easy especially in a news cycle when people feel so buffeted with information at all times and sort of feel under attack by their own news feeds, I think it's very difficult to do the work of paying attention but it it's absolutely critical here because it's not just about the group that tried to kidnap Governor Whitman it's about the the connections between that group. The proud boy is Adam often in the base boo-boys, there are many of these groups on. The scene now now to your question about numbers, this is a very difficult one I'm not sure we even have an accurate headcount for the earlier movement, and that's where we have the the most consistent set of archival materials. As a historian. I'm very reluctant to make specific claims about the movement right now because I don't have my sources together yet and I won't have them for another ten or twenty years but what we know from reading the history and from reading the news. So in other words, what the? That history gives us can show us is that we have every reason to be concerned about further activity and escalating violence. This is a movement that is intent on mass casualty attacks that has used not just voter intimidation, but all kinds of other violent means over years and that has been organizing in this way quite effectively for decades. If not generations, this is not a new problem and it's not something that will go away quickly and the other thing is that this is a movement that is organized around sell style action much. Like a group in in radical Islamic terror would would work mix up that this group has been doing that since nineteen eighty-three, they're very, very good at it because they use cell style organization, there's not a great correlation between rising size of group membership lists and rising capacity for violent action. Because if you're trying to carry out an act of style terror, you're not interested in two thousand people who are going to come out on Saturday and March Down Main Street. You're interested in six people who are willing to detonate a bomb. So the difference is sometimes what we see is a shrinking of membership before an intense surge and violence I'm very concerned that that's where we are now and I think you know the people who do have archival information for the present day moment are saying the same thing. So I'm hearing this from people in the FBI people at Department of Homeland Security who have access to surveillance documents. I'm hearing this from people at the southern poverty law center and other watchdog groups who? Spend their time monitoring white power and militia TV, online, and most of hearing this from people who work in de radicalization trying to help people out of the movement everyone is sounding the alarm bell right now, everyone is running up the red flag and I think you know you don't have to listen to me. I'm just a historian, but I think everyone is calling everyone they can think of to to sort of try to get people to pay attention to this very grave situation. Hunch they're bringing an acceleration in the momentum of these groups because of if obviously radically different reasons the last two presidents you had the the fact of a black president of the United States, which clearly a number of people had a significant problem with and he's followed by a president who is to put it charitably equivocal in his condemnation of these groups. Yes. Absolutely and we're seeing a very clear relationship between political rhetoric and extremist action is that to price do you think can be put back in the tube night at all? That's a good metaphor for it. I usually say we can't on ring the bell. Exactly the problem right because you know if you take something like the president's remarks in the first debate about calling the proud boys to quote stand back and stand by even if you take the most generous interpretation of his remarks and say, okay, perhaps perhaps he was fed that group name and he doesn't know who they are perhaps he meant to tell them. To stand down even if we take all of that as given I think that there is a very real problem i. in the fact that it's not just the proud boys who heard that as a paramilitary call to readiness there are many other underground groups like the Bass Lake the guys in Michigan who heard that call as the call to action. And there's another problem of even in the case of activists who right now support the president. There's no indication that he has the power to call these people off. Once he has ignited away of violence as I said, this is a movement that has been expressly anti-government for many many years, and this is a strange thing about the United States that it has since the Vietnam war been. Very possible to hold the position in the United States of being anti government and pro president or pro-military or pro cop at the same time I mean we see Ronald Reagan making statements about how the government is the problem not the solution while he is the head of the government. So that sort of gymnastics act of balancing that since a fracture is not a problem for people here. So, there is a way that you can be pro trump right now and still be dedicated to violent overthrow of the state down the road or at some present moment and another note of caution is just the last time that this movement became very deadly setting off the string of events that led to the Oklahoma City bombing, and you know the the most horrific mass casualty attack for the United States between Pearl Harbor Nine Eleven. The last time that happened was not under a leftist administration it was under Reagan and it was because activists in this movement saw Reagan's perceived moderation as a sign. that. Political means could never deliver the kind of change that they wanted. Even Reagan was not offering what they wanted, which was reestablishment of Jim Crow Segregation or reinstatement of slavery or establishment of a white homeland things like this were much too radical for mainstream politics. So there's a real chance that even trump will hit align where it's too extreme for him. I mean even trump is not talking about reestablishing slavery and at that point I think there might be a wave of dissatisfied people if he's re-elected who are interested in mass casualty attacks just finally is there an aspect of this which is? Not just or perhaps beyond politics and beyond even race it strikes me just looking at the. Way in which the members of these movements present themselves, there's this strange cartoonish idea of masculinity in play. You know it is a very masculine movement, but it turns out that both in the earlier movement and today women are incredibly important to this activism You don't always see that in the public facing part of what they're doing. But in the period of my study, there's a whole bunch of women who are sort of forming the social network holds these people together and really makes possible violent action and they're doing everything from publishing their own newspapers to running their. Own Auxiliary groups to driving getaway cars and disguising people when they're on the Lam and even as they're doing all that they are saying things like I'm not an activist I'm not political I would never seek a leadership role because you know within this worldview out sweat good womanhood looks like but however you cut it women are incredibly important here and we would be foolish to think that those deep social interactions aren't part of what is sustaining this groundswell. I'm just you're just finally finally and feel free if you like to to refuse to gaze into a crystal ball but. How do you see this playing out in the next? Well, the next few weeks I if the polls are correct and Donald Trump does lose office on Tuesday. Well I, think everyone in the United States. Approaching all polls with a degree of caution from now on for. Immediate. Historical reasons. My concern here is that there is no mental picture that I can paint. There's no series of events that I can see that would make someone at this point with this set of social pressures with this worldview simply put down the weapons and go home and say, okay, well, we lost this round. It's time to go do some democratic change somewhere else. So my concern is that if trump is while if biden is elected, I think that these activists will not only be frustrated and rally look for mass casualty are opportunities if trump. Is elected I think that one ends game has to do with them, feeling dissatisfied and turning to mass casualty attacks in route to overthrowing the government. Again, as they've been doing for quite a long time, another route would be a continuation of sort of this Lincoln in an odd slash outright calling to arms line of rhetoric I mean there's a way that groups like this and other contexts have become strike forces and death squads for authoritarian regimes and there we can look to southern America and central, America for many examples of how that's happened. All all three of these are threats to Americans and to our democracy. So I think it is a very bleak time for people who pay attention to this particular part of the American political life. But was Kathleen Blues speaking to me earlier, Kathleen's book bring the war home the white power movement and paramilitary America is published by BELKNAP.
Are we better off than we were four years ago?
"Presidential campaign, Ronald Reagan struck the killing blow to President Jimmy Carter's chances for re election by asking one simple question. Are you better off than you were four years ago? A recent Gallup poll asked voters the same question. I'm Jeff Charles, socio political correspondent with liberty nation dot com, according to the poll, 56% of voters said they were better off than they were before President Trump took office. This percentage is higher than when the same poll was conducted during President George W. Bush and Barack Obama's administrations. When Reagan asked this question, the answer was a resounding no, as evidenced by his solid victory over Jimmy Carter. In 2020. The answer seems to be yes. But what does this predict about the 2020 election If American voters believe that Trump contributed to their improve circumstances, and it could mean that they will support the president, regardless of the Poles. Either way, it is clear that Reagan's question is every bit as relevant today as it was in 1980
The Latest: Kershaw, Dodgers take Game 1 over Rays
"Vast fox sports radio networking glad you have chosen to spend A couple minutes with us and there is no debate. There is no debate where we begin this night, a radio the fall classic surfing the Blue Wave Cowabunga Dod's the Fall Classic, starting in a neutral site. Kind of on Tuesday night with Joe Buck every night, you get ajob of game and John Smalls calling the game on Fox. Did you watch? Maybe not will see that I don't imagine the ratings will be very good for this Thegame was lopsided in there's one team that has a fan base and another one that doesn't a national fan base for the Dodgers. Put on a pyrotechnics show. It was like the Fourth of July. Boom Bang Bam! The Dodger offense When Cody Bellenger Mookie Betts hit homeruns Clayton Kershaw mowing down Tampa haters like it was an April started Dodger Stadium on by the time The damage he'd done. Ella ended up spit roasting the raise 8 to 3 and Game one of the 2020 World Series for the Dodgers Get a leg up on the best of seven series now three wings away. From their first championship as a franchise since 1988 When Ronald Reagan was the president, Tommy Lasorda was waddling in the dugout and Kurt Gibson got wanted bat and hit a home run and is at all time legend because of that, as a Dodger, So let us discuss the question. What are your big takeaways? From Game one of the World Series, a domination situation for the Dodgers. So I've got the white whale hand grenades and Smurfs and we will tie all these things together. Now we talk about the World Series. Game one. You start with us. Accounts on Lee is just one game. It doesn't matter that much in the big picture. It's only one game. However. I'm going to disagree with that statement because the feeling that one gets watching Game one of the World Series from the Dodgers side of things. It's like hitting a two team parlay. It doesn't seem like a one win situation. Night, so don't undersell the importance of a game one win for Los Angeles and I'll tell you why. Because the Dodgers winning a Clayton Kershaw playoffs start As easy as a B C. 123. Is not something that happens very often, right. You feel like you dodged a bullet when you win a Kershaw game in the playoffs in a big play off game, Kershaw has been the dog with fleas in the postseason. And while many of my colleagues on television like to downplay Clayton Kershaw's missteps on radio, we don't do that We don't his World Series resume coming in. I would have him in the bread line. If that was his resume. What into an E? R. A of over five he had pitched in 26 2 3rd innings given up 16 earned runs. Over four starts in five games. But on this night, it reminded and voice in my head. It was Dick Stockton, who told me years ago stats tell you what has happened. They don't tell you what's going to happen. And that was a vintage regular season type of Kershaw performance. And you see that in a big play off game as often as you see a white whale swimming around the ocean, right? Clayton Kershaw got 38 swings. 19. Mrs. He had a whiff rate of 50%. Now the stat geeks tell us that that is the highest Of Clayton Kershaw's career, whether it be the postseason or the regular season that half the time it was S O matter, Miss. That is what's known as flexing your muscles, and it wasn't just Kershaw. Cody Bellenger, Mookie Betts. Max Muncy all had big days. The conga line kept moving. You keep pressure on your opponent 10 hits, they got seven walks. The Dodgers drew seven walks and, more importantly than that. They actually hit when they had runners in scoring position. They batted 3 57 on this day with runners in scoring position. They were five out of 14 follow the ways and is a key. You follow the wisdom often, American legend Will Rogers You never get a second chance to make a first impression. The Dodgers they made their first impression. Now you've got to back that up. You have backed that up in Game two in Game three, but you only played one game and the Dodgers the more talented team they didn't play down to their competition. They played like they were the superior opponent in this matchup. We certainly hope that continues were slightly biased on this now. Part B. If you would like to knit pick That's one of these. We get paid to do hear on the radio. Always to pick apart things in micro analyze. Dave Roberts fell back into some old analytical principles. We were hoping that his gut feeling managerial move. The other night would continue. It did not in this game, managing Clayton Kershaw. For Dave Roberts is like juggling hand grenades. One wrong move one wrong move and your head gets blown off. And I understand partially what Roberts is thinking. Because when I'm watching Clayton Kershaw, I'm thinking, OK, Here's where it all falls apart goes to hell right here, right. This is going to be the inning. It all goes to crap. In a playoff situation. But on this night Kershaw he was dealing He'd only thrown 78 pitches. Through six innings. And ah, very effective there. The Rays hitters were completely flummoxed against Kershaw as we gave you some of the numbers there of 50% with weight, and despite the Dodgers having a huge advantage there up eight tow one. They, Roberts Arbitrarily said. That's it. We're going to take you out of the game. I'd rather take you out of half inning. Too early, then a half inning too late. So that brought in Dillon Florio, who wasn't good and then and then Roberts panic because the Rays attempted the pin shit G may enjoy And so Roberts ran out of the dog and I got to make a change. I

"This week on presidential words matter. We focus on Ronald Reagan. And how he used the power of his office to provide leadership and comfort in time of national tragedy, crisis and morning. The space shuttle Challenger's launch had already been delayed twice when it finally took off on January twenty. Eighth Nineteen eighty-six. This particular launch was widely publicized because for the first time in history, a civilian a teacher named Christa McAuliffe. Traveling into space. The plan was to have McCullough communicate to students from space according to the New York. Times nearly half America's school. Children aged nine to thirteen. Watch the event live in their classrooms. But tragically short seventy three seconds into flight. The world was stunned when the Challenger burst into flames killing all seven crew members on board. President, Ronald Reagan canceled his scheduled state of the Union address that evening and instead addressed the nation's grief. A young speechwriter, a friend and a hero of mine Peggy Noonan was tasked with drafting the president's remarks on this solemn occasion. It was a heavy burden as she later recalled quote i. kind of figured. The entire nation had just seen an auto accident. Newnan draft a speech that was aimed as she put it quote at those who are eight years old. Those who are eighteen and those who were eighty. It was nothing less than one of the greatest speeches in presidential history, and it earned Ronald Reagan his now famous moniker the great, communicator. With that let's listen to Ronald. Reagan's January Twentieth Nineteen eighty-six speech, following the space shuttle Challenger disaster. Ladies and Gentlemen I plan to speak to you tonight to report on the State of the Union. The events of earlier today of led me to change those plans. Today is a day from morning and remembering. Nancy and I are paying to the core, but the tragedy of the shuttle challenge. We know we share this pain with all the people of our country. This is truly a national loss. Nineteen years ago almost to the. We lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the ground. But we've never lost an astronaut in flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. and. Perhaps we've forgotten the courage. It took for the crew of the shuttle. But they. The challenger seven were aware of the dangers. Overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We Mourn Seven Heroes Michael Smith. Dick's Gobi. Judith Resnik Ronald. McNair. Ellison Onisuka. Gregory, Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe We mourn their loss as a nation together. The families of the seven. We cannot bear as you do the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel a loss. We're thinking about you so very much. Your loved ones where daring and brave. They had that special grace at special spirit that says give me a challenge and I'll meet it with joy. They had a hunger to explore the universe discoveries truths. They wished to serve, and they did. They served off us. We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us. For Twenty five years the United States space program has been doing just that. We've grown used to the idea of space. And perhaps we forget that we've only just begun. We're still pioneers. They, the members of the Challenger crew were pioneers. And I wanted to say something to the school, children of America, who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle takeoff? I know it's hard to understand sometimes painful things like this happen. It's all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It's all part of taking a chance and expanding man's horizons. Future doesn't belong to the faint hearted. Belongs to the brave. The challenger crew was pulling us into the future. And we'll continue to follow the. I've always had great faith in and respect for our space program. And, what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We don't hide our space program. We don't keep secrets and cover things out. We do it all up front and in Public That's the way freedom isn't. We wouldn't change it for a minute. We'll continue our question space. There would be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews, and yes more volunteers more civilians more teachers in space. Nothing ends here. Our hopes and our journeys continue. I wonder why that. I wish I could talk to every man and woman who works for NASA or who worked on this mission. And tell them. Your dedication and professionalism have moved and impressed us for decades. and. We know of your anguish. We share it. Is a coincidence today on this day three hundred ninety years ago, the great explorer Sir Francis Drake. died aboard ship off the coast of Adam. In his lifetime, the great frontiers where the oceans and historian later said he lived by the sea, died on it and was buried in it. Or today! We can say of the Challenger crew. Their dedication was like drake's complete. The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us for the manner in which they live their lives. We will never forget them. Nor the last time we saw. This morning. As they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye. And slipped the surly bonds over. The touch the face of God. Thank!.

"After nearly eight years in office the great communicator delivered. His thirty fourth and Final Oval Office address. His tenure was not without controversy and there is much about Ronald Reagan and his policies for historians and commentators to rightly criticise. But more than anything else. Reagan understood the power and importance of words in the final week of the nineteen eighty campaign. Reagan met then president. Jimmy Carter for their first and only debate. The former Hollywood actor and governor of California posed a simple question to the voters. Are you better off than you were? Four years ago the answer was a resounding no for his final presidential address. Reagan wanted to end on a note of what have become his trademark optimism. All of his political life the Gipper had talked about America as a shining city on a hill but he had never really defined what he meant as he prepared to leave office. Reagan finally communicated that vision pay attention to his words. In Reagan's view America was made great by free trade and the contributions of immigrants. If that city had to have walls those walls had doors. Those doors were open to all who had the heart and the will to get here. It is a message very different from what we hear today from those who claim his legacy three decades later with that. Let's listen to Ronald Reagan's farewell address fellow Americans. This is the thirty fourth time I'll speak to you from the Oval Office and the last we've been together eight years now and soon. It'll be time for me to go before I do. I wanted to share some thoughts. Some of which I've been saving for a long time. It's been the honor of my life to be your president so many of you have written the past few weeks to say. Thanks but I could say as much to you. Nancy and I are grateful for the opportunity. You gave us to sir. One of the things about the presidency is that you're always somewhat apart. You spend a Lotta time going by too fast and a car. Someone else's driving seeing the people should tinted glass appearance holding up a child and wave. You saw too late and couldn't return and so many times. I wanted to stop reach out from behind the glass and connect. Well maybe I can do a little that tonight. People ask how I feel about leaving and the fact is partying is such sweet sorrow. Sweep part is California and the ranch in Freedom. The sorrow the goodbyes. Of course and leaving this beautiful place you know down the hall and up the stairs from this office is the part of the White House where the president and his family live. There are a few favorite windows up there that I like to stand and look out of early in the morning. The view over the ground here to the Washington Monument and then the mall and the Jefferson Memorial but on mornings when the humidity is low. You can see past the Jefferson to the river the Potomac and the Virginia shore. Someone said that's the view. Lincoln had when he saw the smoke rising from the battle of bull run lying see more prosaic things the grass on the banks the morning traffic is people make their way to work now and then a sailboat on the river. I've been thinking a bit at that window. I've been reflecting on what the past eight years of mint and mean the image that comes to mind like a refrain is a nautical one small story about a big ship at a refugee and a sailor. It was back in the early eighties at the height of the boatpeople and the sailor was hard at work on the carrier. Midway which was patrolling the South China Sea. The sailor like most American servicemen was young smart and fiercely. Observant crew spied on the horizon. Leaky little boat and crammed inside were refugees from Indochina Hoping to get to America. The midway sent a small launch to bring them to the ship. Safety at the refugees made their way through the choppy seas. One spied the sailor on deck and stood up and called out to him. He yelled Hello American sailor. Freedom man small moment with a big meeting a moment. The sailor who wrote it in a letter couldn't get out of his mind and when I saw neither could I because that's what it has to. It was to be an American in the nineteen eighty S. We stood again for freedom. I know we always have but in the past few years. The World Again. In a way we ourselves rediscovered. It's been quite a journey this decade and we held together through some stormy seas and at the end together. We're reaching our destination. The fact is from Grenada. The Washington and Moscow summits from the recession of eighty one to eighty two to the expansion. That began in late. Eighty two and continues to this day. We've made a difference the way I see it. There were two great triumphs. Two things that I'm proudest one. Here's the economic recovery in which the people of America created and filled nineteen million new jobs. The other is the recovery of our morale. America is respected again in the world and looked to for leadership. Something that happened to me a few years ago. Reflect some of this. It was back in Nineteen eighty-one and I was attending my first big economic summit which was held that year in Canada. The meeting place rotates among the member countries. The opening meeting was a form dinner for the heads of government of the seven. Industrialized nations live. Sat there like the new kid in school and listened and it was offering. Soi this and hell that they dropped titles and spoke to not one another on a first name basis but at one point I sorta leaned in and said my name drawn but in that same year we began the actions we felt would ignite and economic comeback cut taxes and regulation started to cut spending so in the recovery began two years later another economic summit with pretty much the same cast at the big opening meeting. We all got together and all of a sudden just for a moment. I saw that everyone was sitting there looking at me and then one of them broke. Charlotte's tell us about the American miracle he said back in nineteen eighty. When I was running for president it was all so different. Some pundits said our programs would result in catastrophe. Our views on foreign affairs would cause war. Our plans for the economy would cause inflation to soar and bring about economic collapse. I even remember one highly. Respected economists saying back in nineteen eighty two that the engines of economic growth have shut down here and they're likely to stay that way for years to come while he him. The other opinion leaders were wrong. The fact is what they called. Radical was really right. What they call dangerous was just desperately needed and in all of that time I WANNA nickname. The great communicator. But I never thought it was my style or the words I use. That made a difference. It was the content. I wasn't a great communicator. But communication 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. They called it the Reagan Revolution then. I'll accept that but for me it always seeing more like the great rediscovery a rediscovery of our values and our common sense common sense told us that when you put a big tax on something that people will produce less of it. So we cut the people's tax rates and the people produce more than ever before the economy bloomed like a plant that had been cut back and could now grow quicker and stronger. Our economic program brought about the longest peacetime expansion in our history real family income up the poverty rate down entrepreneurship booming and an explosion in research and new technology. We're exporting more. Now than ever because America industry became more competitive and at the same time some of the national will to not down protectionist walls abroad instead of erecting them at home commonsense also told us that to preserve the peace. We'd have to become strong again. After years of weakness new confusion. So we rebuild our defenses. In this New Year we toasted the new peacefulness around the globe. Not only of the superpowers actually begun to reduce their stockpiles of nuclear weapons and hope for even more progress is bright but the regional conflicts that rack the globe are also beginning to cease. The Persian Gulf is no longer awards on the Soviets are leaving Afghanistan the Vietnamese. You're preparing to pull out of Cambodia and an American mediated accord was soon sent fifty thousand Cuban troops home from Angola. The lesson of all this was of course because we're a great nation. Our challenges seem complex. It will always be this way but as long as we remember our first principles and believe in ourselves the future will always be hours and something else we learned once you begin a great movement. There's no telling where to lint. We meant to change a nation and instead we changed the world. Countries across the globe are turning to free markets and free speech and turning away from the ideologies of the past for them the great rain discovery of the nineteen eighty s has been that low and behold the moral way of government is the practical way of government democracy. The profoundly good is also the profoundly productive. When you've got to the point where you can celebrate the anniversary of your thirty ninth birthday. You could sit back sometimes. Review your life and see it flowing before you for me. There was a fork in the river and it was right in the middle of my life. I never meant to go into politics. Wasn't my intention when I was young but I was raised to believe you had to pay your way for the blessings bestowed on you. I was happy with my career in the entertainment world but ultimately went into politics because I wanted to protect something. Precious hours was the first revolution in the history of mankind that truly reversed the course of government and with three little words we the people we the people tell the government what to do. It doesn't tell us we the people at the driver. The government is the car and we decide where it should go and by what route and how fast almost all the world's constitutions are documents in which governments tell people what their privileges are. Our Constitution is a document in which we the people.
