Fresh update on "ronald reagan" discussed on Abdul at Large
"24 7 hours 24 7 news cycles ever since Donald Trump became president, even before that, Of of Ah, very, very unique time in American history. So this pick sort of puts in a context. What this election is all about a juxtaposition between Donald Trump and his administration and the type of results He's had over the past four years and a very different ticket. And Biden and Kamala Harris, perhaps the most left leaning presidential ticket in American history, the most pro a pro abortion, the most The ticket that is most against Second Amendment rights. A ticket that That stands for appeasing China rather than putting pressure on China's Donald Trump Has it really puts a dividing line is going to be very clear, Azalea closer to Election Day of what's What's at stake in this election and that that's what that's what Kamala Harris is picked by Joe Biden does for this election. It puts a clear focus into the differences between these two tickets. My friend also, Ah, it was interesting that Kamala Harris and early on I kind of went after Joe Biden basically saying he was racist in any thoughts on that or is it just was sort of a classic. There is a George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan. George Bush. No points. Afraid of voodoo economics is just what you do in a primary, then you'll just hug each other during the general election. I had a laugh as one of the clips I was watching last night and this morning of Kamala Harris and the During the Democratic presidential primary. She didn't like Joe Biden at all. And now she's changed her tune. I suppose there there's a historical context to that. In Ah, primaries past. I mean, you talk about Bush and Reagan and and there are a lot of other cases where you sort of have these types of marriages and coalitions built after the fact when a presidential contender picks his running mate. What's what's different about this is that she? She not only called him everything but a racist in the debate. Abdul. She also says she believed the sexual assault accuser against Joe Biden terror read. She said she believed her. When that when all of that was making news during the presidential primary, and then he got all of these clips through the debates of her attacking bite and on the debate stage and questioning his his ability to lead Our country, So I imagine we're going to see a lot more of those clips as we get closer to Election Day, But But you do have to sit back and laugh at at how things change. This was the predictable pick for Joe Biden. And so most people are surprised. That he chose Or what does surprise me though, is that I'm not sure that she she gains anything for me. If you put your political hat on, and And that really study this. This pick on Biden's behalf. She's not California is already one for Biden. She has a brain California not sure that she brings city sectors of Of undecided voters or voters in the middle who are disenfranchised by by by American politics, her out of work because of because of the policies, certainly of the last administration of the administration's before it. So I'm not sure I'm not really sure what this pic games for Joe Biden, but it does put into a clear context with the what The differences are between the two tickets, and we'll have more with Congressman Banks.

'Boys State' Helps Teens Learn How Politics Work — Perhaps A Little Too Well
"This is fresh air, want a glimpse into a potential future candidate for elected office? Look no further than the new documentary called Boy State. It's about an annual event in my government for high school students sponsored by the American Legion. By the way, Bill Clinton and Cory Booker went through the program. Boy state begins streaming Friday on Apple, Plus our film critic Justin Chang has THISS review. Since they were founded in the 19 thirties by the American Legion, the boys, state and Girls state programs have been giving high schoolers a practical education in how government works. Students in every state are chosen to take part in a weeklong summer experiment in which they must form their own representative democracy. As we learned from the opening credits of the terrific new documentary Boys State. No Clinton, Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh and Cory Booker are just a few of the program's famous alone's A film, directed by Amanda McBain and Jesse Moss, focuses on the Texas boy state event that took place in June 2018. We see the roughly 1200 participants arriving in Austin. Where they are randomly divided into two political parties, The federalists and the Nationalists. Those names carry no agenda. It's up to both parties to hammer out a platform, choose their leaders and then run against each other in a week long election campaign. McBain and Moss throw us into this mark government exercise without much preamble or explanation of the rules of the game. My politics itself. The action can be a little confusing. Unlike politics, it's never boring, mainly because the movie wisely focuses on a select few participants. Either. The filmmakers were extremely lucky and their choice of subjects or they shot so much footage that they were able to isolate the most compelling personalities. In any event, the four young men, we spend the most time with all in that playing key roles in the experiments, nerve wracking outcome. Most ambitious of the bunch is been the Federalists Party chair who's willing to do anything to win votes, including smearing the Nationalists on Social media. Dennis, politically conservative. He has a Ronald Reagan action figure to prove it. And he despises what he sees as the liberal tendency to divide people along lines of race, gender and disability. Then speaks from some personal perspective. He lost both his legs to meningitis when he was three. Care of the Nationalist Party hails from the opposite end of the political spectrum. Progressive black teenager originally from Chicago. Renee knows he stands out in this mostly white, conservative Texas field. He also stands out on merit. He has a seasoned politicians command of rhetoric and can deftly out argue any opponent. It is also capable of calling for party unity, as he does in an early speech. My grandmother told me a few things you have to have faith, hope and a bit of a pissed off attitude. I want to be civil and represent a whole working body. And we're gonna take the example of a plane body. It has two wings left one, right one. We're not gonna pick one. We're going to stay in the middle, because we're not intolerable party where one that is palatable to all. And so as long as we're able to keep this plane of foot with a healthy right wing in a healthy left wing, we have the ability and the capability to pummel any fairless into the ground because we're the only party that's where voting for because it's this party that's going to represent every individual. If Rene has the sharpest mind and tongue and boy state, its heart and soul belonged to Steven A fellow nationalist party member. Stephen becomes an underdog in the race for governor, the highest elected office. Like Rene Steven stands out. He's the son of a Mexican immigrant, and he counts Bernie Sanders among his political heroes, his humility on the campaign trail and his stirring honesty in front of a microphone. Prove irresistible to the crowd. Again and again, he invites his fellow party members to tell him what issues are most important to them so that he could be a better truer representative for their concerns. We see these young men debating a lot of issues, especially gun control. There's a lot of talk about protecting the Second Amendment. But there are also counter arguments from students like Steven, who have clearly been shaken by the sheer number of school shootings. Another much discussed. Issue is abortion, which leads to one of the film's most revealing moments. A nationalist gubernatorial candidate named Robert, who's running on a strict pro life platform. Admits on camera that he secretly pro choice. Sometimes you've got to say what you've got to say in an attempt to win, he says. That's politics. Indeed, it is. And while the filmmakers are working from a mostly neutral fly on the wall perspective, their attitude toward the boy state program feels ambivalent. At best, Deliberately or not. The experiment seems to bring out a lot of the flaws of America's political system itself. Personal attacks, dishonest tactics and conflicts that hinge moron popularity than substantive policy debate. It's undeniably inspiring to see so many young men with bright, engaged minds and the best of them, as we see from the end of the movie have already gone on to impressive new accomplishments. But it's also dispiriting that so many of them have already learned to view politics in the most cynical way possible as the game to be won by any means necessary.

Fresh update on "ronald reagan" discussed on Mike Allen
"Think, but Joe Biden on Wednesday and that all the drama and speculation about who would be a CZ running mate. In the election. That is only 88 days of way. Can you believe that 88 days away? And of course, we all know he picked Senator Kamala Harris of California and in doing so Even though he excluded 1/2 Of the population by announcing a few months back, but he would only put pick a woman. He was able to exercise what Democrats like to do, and that checked two boxes. Horse boxes that are so important to the Democrat Party. And the two boxes are. Of course he picked the woman box checked that off, and he went one better. He picked a woman of color. Check that box off. And we have discussed this point time and time again on this show, but it merits repeating. I think And I mean this. This is probably the most significant vice presidential pick in our nation's history. And I'm not. I'm not exaggerating at all. On that, and vice presidential picks are always portrayed. As more important than they really are, because people vote for the top of the ticket, not the bottom of it, But it's different in this election, and here's why And I think you guys already know this. If elected, Joe Biden will be 78 years old. When he's inaugurated in January. Of course, we don't want that to happen, but if it does, he will be the oldest president inaugurated ever. And it's 78. That's older than Ronald Reagan was when he left office. Reagan with 77 listen to this. And I'm not trying to be morbid here, but they're things that she got to know the life expectancy of a white male in the United States of America Day today. Is 78.6 years and again Sleepy Jobe, 78 when he's inaugurated. If he wins now, check this out. A new Rasmussen report poll shows that more than half of the voters surveyed and nearly half of Democrats don't believe Joe Biden will complete all four years. Get this. 59% believe it is likely. That Biden's running mate. Would become president. The survey suggests. Younger voters in particular are convinced that Biden would not finish his first term if elected president. Listen to this, though 38% of voters, including 20% of Democrats, believe Biden Again. It will be 78 if he wins the White House. And again, I don't mean to be disrespectful. But 38% of voters 20% of Democrats think he is suffering from some form of dementia. And you know, on the last point and I don't say this disrespectfully. I really don't It's scary. I think it appears obvious that there's some kind of cognitive problem. With Joe Biden. I mean, even when he read the script, I noticed it this week watching the next time you see him, he won't be unscripted. So watching money reads his script. He was much too mouth, not a lot, but a little bit. And again. I hate to keep repeating, but I'm not making fun of him. I'm making an observation. It's serious stuff people, and that's why the VP pick this year is so important. Geeta and It drives home the point that the he had to make the right call in his vice presidential pick, and I don't know that he did this, But here's the bottom line. I'll get off of this point. If Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are elected in November, I think there is better than a 50% shot. The Joe Biden won't finish out his four years and Voila! We now have President Harris and friends. I'm going to tell you and I'll explain why in a minute that is a chilling proposition. And, of course, nobody thought it would be any different. When the announcement came out on Wednesday, the mainstream media had a collective orgasm. It was unbelievable. The New York Times the self proclaimed newspaper, a record I got the headline right in front of God forbid I didn't buy the thing. I got it online. The New York Times. Okay, The whole front page is about this pick, the first headline says Harris joins Biden Ticket, achieving a 1st 2nd headline under that political warriors shape. By life in two worlds. Third headline pick seen as Safe but energizing And finally, the fourth headline Woman of Color in Number two slot of Major party the whole damn front page and not one word of it. Not one word. Check me on. This is critical in any way, shape or form. Now contrast this. Do you go back to The New York Times Front page of August, the 30th 2008. You know what that date was? That was the date that John McCain announced that he was picking Sarah Palin to be his running mate. 10. Sarah Palin that day in The New York Times on the front page. Yeah, there was a headline, but she shared space that same day with a report. Of how natural gas helps Utah motorist save money So there you go. Compare and contrast. But what was really comical about this? But not really surprising, but what was really comical of how the so called newspaper of record how they described the pick. And they put out a tweet right when it was announced The New York Times did And here's what they're tweet announced. Breaking news Senator Kamala Harris of California's Joe Biden's pick for vice president, and here's Here's the Money shot a pragmatic, moderate She is the first black woman on a major party ticket. A pragmatic moderate. Are you kidding me? I literally busted out laughing. When I read that I really did. And then he got little George Stephanopoulos saying this and this is its even better. I think then The New York Times Here's what Stephanopoulos said. Kamala Harris comes from the listen to this middle of the road, moderate wing of the Democratic Party. Not the first choice of progressives. But Joe Biden banking on this historic move as the first woman of color on a national ticket..

You can catch a new episode of the daily Diet, every Monday through Friday and it's ready when you wake up. On the weekend edition, I'll be bringing some of the best stories from the week. Big Political News this week former Vice President Joe Biden has picked Senator Kamala Harris to be his running mate, and even though she was seen as a front from the beginning the process to get there was unusual and laborious. There was eleven. Finalists involved a panel of lawyers and tough questions all around for more on how we got the Biden Harris ticket will speak to Michael Shearer national political reporter at the Washington Post. She is the first black first Asian to be on major party ticket and the first Californian since Ronald Reagan, I think we gotta give Nixon and Reagan there. Do you know from a few decades back the way this process began was Joe Biden saying I want to pick a woman for this role and they drew up a list of more than twenty names and cast a pretty broad net for that person they had a Panel of four people helping them those people interviewed each of the more than twenty people with basically a questionnaire the same set of questions for each person questions like what would your gender be if you're a vice president? What do you think trump's nickname for you would be presented those findings to Joe Biden and his wife Jill in a meeting and the vice president follow adopt in one on one conversations with the members. Of this group and then they narrowed that list down to eleven basically finalists who were then subjected to a much more invasive in deeper bedding. Pretty those eleven finalists was individually interview that was conducted in the last nine days by the vice president is a team between twelve and fifteen attorneys were assigned each person to vet. Basically everything is done in their life. You know all public record saw public speeches I'll controversies financial matters. You name it everything you've done you were asked to disclose to the vetting committee to discuss drew explain your spouse's records also were subjected to scrutiny, and then that process ended earlier this week when the former vice president when Wisconsin Harris and not to the end that was some suspense it's ironic that this was an enormously laborious process and he ended up where. A lot of people thought and we'RE GONNA end up from the beginning and didn't it didn't change much I mean commonly Harris probably the front runner or rather for the job when this all started and ended up with the job. Exactly and there's all these little bumps along the way like the debate where she nailed him on some race issues and you don't. Have to hold hard not holding any lingering grudges you know and and and in the end he could make the right choice for him but I wanna go back to something you said at the beginning where all the candidates were given questions in their initial interviews. What do you think Donald? Trump's nickname for you would be that's actually such an important question right there because that's what the president does. He markets you in a specific way in. A negative way so that people won't trust you or whatnot. So having that kind of foresight into how the president would attack you so important and for Common Harris she's kind of tough person to pigeonhole. She's a black woman. She's also an Indian American woman. She's the daughter of immigrants. There's a lot of stuff in her back on that's going to be tough just to pinpoint on her. So I'm sure that also fared into why she was chosen. I mean I think there's a couple part to that question one is. Workout how the president will attack each of these people. But the other part of is how they will respond to the attack. I think one of the things that the interviews we're trying to get from that question is how prepared and how self aware are these candidates for what they're about to go through if they are picked for this job people involved in the process of come Harris, just come through the primary it's just one of the only. Candidates here who actually gone through the whole primary process, which is itself a very grueling job interview performed very well. Initial meeting was very confident news EPA what she's about how to good understanding of policy and was compelling for the people who are talking with there. So I think it was something passes Biden from the start of this process is said he didn't hold grudges from the primary process I mean as you said, calmly Harris went after him. Effectively, and very frontally in one of those early debates in when she questioned his relationship segregation at senators and since she's been personally offended by the fact that had opposed. Forced busing programs by the federal government. But their relationship actually did not begin their. She'd been very close with Biden who remains Joe Biden sort of emotional Lodestar here is who died of cancer two years ago they'd both been attorneys general together at the same time had been friends had worked together on big cases into they knew each other there. There were also time sort of behind the. Scenes on the campaign trail including one moment in October where Biden harasses entourage found themselves in the same private airport hangar area in Joe. Biden. Her way able to serve walkway and spend some time with each other. So I think they felt they had a pretty good relationship with each other that transcended that and we see that in this choice I mean. Those bad feeling cleaner and the of race because he initially said a longtime will Yemen to pick a woman I commit to that. But then increasingly as the process started going, it seemed like the push for him to put a woman of color started increasing and there was a lot of different women of different ethnicities on his shortlist. But this also was a thing that was looming throughout the process. And I think it builds throughout the process we use the time. This process began the George Floyd incident had that happened in Minneapolis there weren't these protests around the country and over the course of the summer more and more groups came out more and more public letters were written Joe Biden themselves was taking private meetings with black officials. Consulting allies were telling it's really important for you to pick a black woman here and. While the campaign maintains that that was not the reason Harris was picked structure the environment in which the decision was made and I think arguably if he had gone with a white woman like Elizabeth, Warren, the Massachusetts senator or Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer there would have been a backlash, the base of the party that would have to deal with Michael Scherer national political reporter.

In Executive Actions, Trump Extends Some Unemployment Benefits, Defers Payroll Taxes
"Thirty million Americans are set to miss another benefits. Check this week and addiction moratorium expired last month for millions more the small business paycheck protection program lapsed on Saturday, and some student loan relief will expire at the end of September president. Trump's action sets a weekly unemployment benefit at four hundred dollars. Why did you decide on four hundred dollars when previously families were receiving six hundred that will be a hardship for many what do you say to them? Hardship. This is the money that they need.

"Edrich. How did we get here? Well you know I have to tell him like eleven following American Politics American economics for about five decades and I really watched both the political system and the economic system victory over that time in economics, the things really began to change in the eighties early eighties. From World War Two until the end of the seventies. When the economy grew the middle class standard of living rose with it. You can see him almost move in tandem all levels of society moved up together but then we started to get what they call shareholder capitalism maximum return to shareholders. Wages tended to get frozen. They got stagnant. The middle class of living deteriorated wealth got concentrated. The top one percents the top point went percents top point zero, zero, one percent, and then you had a bunch that happened in the economy partly because of shareholder capitalism, we can talk about that. But also because of the way the tax system was changed huge tax cuts. Under Ronald Reagan under George Bush on Donald Trump for the wealthy added about five trillion dollars five trillion dollars to the wealth of the people at the top end added to the insecurity of the middle class people not knowing whether or not. They could afford their retirement, send their kids to college of for their homes, make it from month to month, and at the same time that was happening a lot of that money was spilling into the political system. So you had the increase. Influence of mega donors, corporate money, and billionaire money particularly since the Citizens United Decision in January twenty ten by the Supreme Court which has given just a free pass to unlimited amounts of money and you've seen the amount of money skyrocket wing go into that. and. That's really affected the political system and the other thing is the party differences have hardened.
"ronald reagan" Discussed on Words Matter
"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!.

Academy postpones 2021 Oscars, will announce new diversity rules
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown Twenty Years Matt Bellamy my usual Banter Buddy on the business and Matt the Ninety Third Academy Awards ceremony has been pushed from February twenty eighth to April twenty fifth for. Obvious reasons. The eligibility period for films which normally would end on December thirty first. It's been extended to February twenty eighth twenty twenty, one. Because of you know. These films have not had opportunity to play or necessarily get the kind of attention. They would normally get. That's the argument now. The Oscars has been pushed before in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, due to La Flooding, and then in sixty eight because of the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King and again in one, thousand, nine, hundred, one, because of the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan so I. Think it's fair to conclude that. When they pushed the Oscar ceremony something very very bad is happening as it is now, but this was necessary. However, if you're ABC, just from a business point of view, this is bad news. Also yeah I mean there's A. A couple ramifications here one is for ABC I mean this is their super bowl. They count on a ton of AD revenues about hundred forty hundred fifty million dollars in ad revenue last year that they can usually count on in February that is now pushed out of q one into cue to if the Oscars take place as planned which are that's a big question mark. Will we have big scale events with celebrities walking a red carpet even in April of next year? We don't know the second is the impact on the film released calendar because. Because assuming at some point that movies do comeback and we start to get movies released in theaters again these big year end movies that everybody sees every year and you know come out around Christmas time and get a lot of the awards attention and go on to win Oscars that window is now going to shift into the January February march window, which is going to change a lot of strategies for these film companies because you don't now have to crowd. You're movie into that year end corridor in order to make an impact with Oscar voters. Voters, you can give it a little bit more time and that February. March time period is usually a dumping ground where you don't put your best movies now. Maybe you're going to put your best movies there because you know, you can get Oscar attention as well as some box office. Yeah, and what's really still very unclear win theaters will open theaters, clinging to to July, as is as our Warner Brothers with Christopher Nolan's ten and a couple of Disney with Milan they push tenant two weeks i. don't really get how that solves anything but. It makes us so they're not I now Milan will be I will be the Guinea pig, so to speak and then Warner. Brothers we'll have tended after that, so they won't be the Guinea Pig the other thing that is. Speaking of Guinea Pigs. The academy is going to try to do require going forward diversity as a criterion for eligibility for Oscar and they haven't specified what that means I I would certainly not argue with the goal Hollywood has been very very stuck for a very long time in terms of diversity goals, but you know it's something where they have to be very careful. You can't just mandate something like that without really choosing how it works, you know and and again. I want to stress how I totally support that goal, but you're sort of a strange territory telling creative people you must do X. and we don't know what xs yet, but you know. This is something where I think. There's a swimming Zaidi that it will end up being like the most popular picture category that ultimately just sort of went away. This should work, but the question is how yeah! It's a big question because you know for years and years, the academy has always said that the diversity problem is not the academy's problem. It is Hollywood's problem, and it's just at the Oscars are reflection of what the industry is doing, so you shouldn't blame the academy for the diversity problems of Hollywood. This is a flip of that. They're saying we are taking this on. On as an organization and saying that you will not be able to be eligible for an Oscar unless you adhere to some basic diversity principles, and they have yet to articulate what those are, so they just WanNa. See what the logistics are going to

How did America get to its current state?
"The scenes across the US in the past week or so, they have been profoundly disturbing heavenly. The protests are in response to the horrifying image of George. Floyd an African American man and Minneapolis. Police officer who killed him by kneeling on his nick for close to nine minutes to spot. He's pleased that he could not brave. Those demonstrations as we all know turned into, want him violence and destruction, not only in the twin cities, but all across American CDs. Today's are quiet and peaceful, but it's really the evenings in the night, so usually bring that fury. Those frustrations attend to boil over in the results or these fiery clashes that we've seen across the country, and of course here in New York. We've already seen dozens of people injured. Hundreds of people arrested in tonight. The expectation is that we could see more of these demonstrations. How did America get to this point? And who precisely are Antioch, the militant left wing political protest movement that part of these rights. Face because Nazis, thank. and. That is a very bad thing because harass people Lemay Organiz they kill. People hurt people. They fight people. And we're the ones who fighting back there. The second coming of Hitler for several decades America has I deeply divided nation. Just go back to the mid to late nineteen sixties when America experienced those long hot summers, protests and riots, Vietnam Rice and Martin. Luther King's assassination. The American people are deeply disturbed. They're baffled and dismayed by the wholesale looting and violence. That has occurred both in small towns and then great metropolitan centres. No society can tolerate massive violence. Anymore than a body can tolerate massive disease to me that black people are in the streets. Has Do the lives air force lead in this country? And unfortunately lead these lives by the indifference and the apathy. And a certain kind of ignorance, willful ignorance on the part of their citizens. According to British historian Max Hastings Pass guest on this show in those days quote. It seemed that rice the election and the Vietnam. War would tearing asunder the greatest country on earth. And to think is deep divisions in America have clearly grown since the sixties especially in the trump era, just think of that toxic polarization, hyper partisanship in Washington and elsewhere not to mention the crisis engulfing American cities. So. How did America get to this point? Robert DALIC is arguably America's most distinguished living presidential historian. He's author of fourteen books including on Presidents FDR JFK, LBJ, Richard, Nixon, and Ronald Reagan. The latest book is called. How did we get? He from Theodore Roosevelt? To Donald Trump it's published by harpercollins. Robert Delic joins me from Washington DC hi Bob. Hi Tom Lovely to hear from you. Great to have you on the show now they adopt is in Washington and across other use CDs, but America as I mentioned, before has experienced similar protests in violence. What do you think distinguishes this crosses? The widespread unrest in nineteen sixty I'd. Well, Tom. One of the things that distinguish did was the fact that Lyndon Johnson of course was. President then, and was presiding over the Vietnam War, which was at the center of what? Disturbed so many people in the United States and triggered so many of these. Demonstrations but Johnson had the good sense. To? Give up running for president. He was very skillful politician. Now we have a president who will not give up who would not resign and the only way we're going to get him out of office is by feeding him in the election. Night comes up and five months from now it's very disquieting situation and the demonstrations across this country. I believe on not. Simply a response to the tragic killing of that black man in Minneapolis, but it's also a protest against Donald Trump's presidency. You Know Tom. He's never reached fifty percent approval. And the going on for years he's been office. And this is unprecedented. No President in terms since we've had polling in the Mid Nineteen Thirties. Has Gone through a whole first term without ever reaching fifty percent approval.
Violence in Resistance
"Cities and towns across the country. Protests have broken out telling the police killings of George, Floyd. We honor Taylor Tony mcdade others while many of these protests were peaceful. Others have turned violent with buildings, being destroyed or looted in clashes, breaking out between the police and protesters. In light of these events, we wanted to bring you an episode from our archives to better understand some of the history behind the black lives matter protests why protests sometimes turned violent how governments often respond and what the role of social media is all of this? This episode was originally recorded with Avi Green in two thousand seventeen, and we're bringing it you a bit earlier this week. Our usual schedule given this weekend's offense. Hi I'm Miranda Kelly, and this is the scholars strategy network Snow Jargon. Each week. We discussed in American policy problem with one of the nation's top researchers without jargon. In this archive episode Avi spoke with Professor Ashley Howard She's an assistant professor of African American history at the University of Iowa shears their conversation. Professor Howard. Thanks for coming on new jargon. Thank you for having me. Why did these protests happen? Well there's no one easy answer, but if I were to give an umbrella term to why they happen is that people feel that they are not receiving equal treatment under the law or in society, and they feel that all of the established means getting equal treatment have failed them. You mean in a way. They're sort of fed up and sick and tired, absolutely fed up in sick and tired I think this is something that people often forget when we think about not only the uprisings or the violent protests that happened in the past two or three years, but also looking historically that there are lots of preceding events that occur beforehand there. There were marches there protester letters of indignation. There were speeches given fun of City Councils, and for whatever reason those cries. Those grievances were gone unheeded unheard, and because of that people take to the streets, and it gets attention, and it's a very loud cry for help and for acknowledged professor. How can you just tell me about one protests from beginning to end? I would love so I'd like to start with kind of the protests. That's been nearest and dearest to my heart. It's the one that I've been researching the longest, and it also takes place in my hometown of Omaha. So in one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, six fourth of July weekend. There are a group of young people. In a parking lot of the Safeway Grocery store on North Twenty four straight. And this kind of an area where people congregate and it was. Evening. GOOP young people were setting off firefighters or firecrackers. A police officer comes. They begin to throw firecrackers at this police vehicle, the police kind of get scared and equipped takeoff they come back and forth, and this kind of sets it off people. See Police as indicative at this time of the state of unfair treatment, and oftentimes these police, public attractions are the catalysts for these uprisings, so over the course of three days young people go up and down North Twenty Fourth Street in the black enclave, and they set small fires. They break windows. They steal goods out of these stores, and the very much engaged in property, violence as protests, but meanwhile has this is going on. You have the mayor of the city Av Sorenson actually meeting with these youth activists listen to their grievances listening to what? What they feel is going on the community. And why love, starting off with Omaha is because Omaha had a long history, a civil rights activism prior to the nineteen sixty six engagement, and what was so notable is at the end double ACP, an urban league had been begging the state for years to open up an unemployment office on North, Twenty Fourth Street, and for years that desire for a building was met. You know was ignored, and by the end of the week of those three days of uprisings North Omaha got their unemployment office. While you know it's funny because I think the words are so charged when we think about uprisings or protests that end in violence that involves some aspect of violence on TV you hear about riots. Can you tell me a little bit about why you call them violent uprisings, and what you think of some of those other words? I mean in some ways. I think riot is pejorative, because it seems that when people use that term, it's divorced from the context in which people are participating at it seems as it's just want violence as a social and Beran, and not actually rooted in issues, and you don't violence approach as protests had along and storied history in the world, so if you think of Labor bread riots. In France in England. Through the green corn rebellion in the United States hey, mark an uprising working class people people without a lot of political capital engage in violent protests as a way to make their voices heard, and it seems that really in the nineteen sixties when blacks began to use this as a primary tactic in their. Repertoire of protest actions that really begins to be demonized in not lauded as you know the underclass kind of going up against those in power and so for me, I like to use rebellion or uprising, because I see these actions on a political. Continue up that you have protests, you have marches, you have demonstrations and at one end of that spectrum. Is this violent protests? It's not divorce from the other things that have come before, but it's the next step when those issues are continually ignore it. Well. It's interesting to think about the more recent violent protests in the context of that long longer history of protests and the longer history of civil rights and racial relations in the in the states as a white person and also somebody who's gone through sort of the standard His. You know I'm not a student history just like history and high school and all that sort of thing. Boy. Is there a difference in the way that we hear about the non violent protests. Martin Luther King. Gandhi all that sort of thing, and and then the way that Events like watts are described and certainly the way that the media today traits events like Ferguson. And there's a difference between how they were portrayed in the moment, and how they're remembered so watts south central l., A. Nineteen, sixty five. This is one of the first when the earliest large uprisings, and so there is the infamous McCone commission that came out where Ronald Reagan is referring to these folks as mad dogs and lawbreakers, and so even though they're pathologising to actions of the people who are engaging in this type of protests they. They. Still understand that it's rooted in politics. The kerner commission, which came out in nineteen, sixty eight, which looked at that. What's been called the long hot summer of nineteen, sixty seven, and that and that was summer with a whole bunch of protests and uprising. Something about that's correct. That was the deadliest summer and the one with the most amount so in the aggregate, the most amount of in terms of scale and scope the largest. Amount of uprisings, this is when you're and Detroit. Both happened and the Kerner Commission looked at this, and said that this is actually rooted in the fundamental desire to have full inclusion American Society and that it's this notion that had as Robert, focus and a scholar who wrote about this in the contemporary moment, said it's not a attempt to overrun America but to alert America. That's something is very wrong and I think when we look at it today, you know it seems. A bit as an anomaly, I at the time Ferguson has time of Baltimore. There was a black president. I think many of us had kind of been lulled into this false sense of security of a a sort of colorblind society. That racism was over. No longer are people using the end where no longer is. The clan burning crosses on people, Yar People's yards. It's over, but in many ways is racism became more systematic or structural, more institutional and hidden, and so these issues still exists is that people don't realize that they're
Trump threatens to quit Open Skies treaty.
"The scientists see the paper as the first in a series over the next couple of months they plan to put out advice on contact tracing serology an antibody tests and data management. Donald Trump said yesterday that Russian violations. Make it untenable for the US to stay in a treaty that permits thirty plus nations to conduct observation flights over each other's territory trump's announcement comes as the US begins new nuclear control. Talks with the Kremlin aimed at replacing an expiring weapons treaty with a modern and potentially three way accord that brings China into the fold senior administration officials say trump's willingness to leave the open skies treaty is evidence of how prominently arms control. Verification and compliance will feature in the new talks the open skies treaty that governs the unarmed overflights was initially set up to promote trust and divert conflict between the US and Russia.

"ronald reagan" Discussed on Words Matter
"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.

Let's dive into the first of three speeches today. This one's by Ronald Reagan address to nation on the Challenger. Ladies and gentlemen. I do plan to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans. Today is a day for morning and remembering Nancy and I are pain to the core by the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger 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 day. We lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the grounds. But we've never lost an astronaut and flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps we forgotten the courage. It took for the crew of the shuttle but they the Challenger seven were aware of the dangers but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We more seven heroes Michael Smith. Dick's Gobi Judith. Resnik Ronald McNair. Ellison owner Zucca Gregory Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a nation together for the families of the seven. We cannot bear as you do the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel the loss and we're thinking about you so very much your loved ones where daring and brave and they had that special grace that special spirit says. GimMe a challenge. In a media with joy they had a hunger to explore the universe and discover its truths they wished to serve in the dead. They served all of us. We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us but 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. Were still pioneers. They the members of the Challenger crew were pioneers. And I want to say something to the school children of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle's takeoff. I know it is hard to understand but 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 in expanding man's horizons. The future doesn't belong to the faint hearted it belongs to the brave the challenger crew was pulling us into the future and we'll continue to follow them. I've always had great faith and respect for our space program in what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We don't hide our space program. We don't keep secrets to cover things up we do it all upfront and public vast. The way freedom is and we wouldn't change it for a minute. We'll continue our questions space. That will be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews in. Yes more volunteers. More civilians more teachers in space. Nothing ends here. Our hopes and our journeys continue. I want to add that. I wish I could talk to every man woman who works for NASA or who worked on this mission and tell them your dedication and professionalism has moved and impressed us for decades and we know of your anguish. We share it. There's a coincidence today on this day. Three hundred ninety years ago. The Great Explorer Sir Francis. Drake died aboard ship off the coast of Panama in his lifetime. The great frontiers were oceans in a historian later said he lived by the sea died on it and was buried in it. While today we can say of the Challenger crew their dedication was like drake's complete the crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they live their lives and we will never forget them nor the last time we saw them this morning as a prepared for the journey and waved goodbye and slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God.
