Most feel good about the economy but not the state of the country
"The president must be brought to heel the nation must be safe I guess the nation must be safe from the lowest unemployment from nineteen sixty nine and the addition of thirteen trillion dollars to the economy I guess we have to save America from that somebody who can help explain what is the logic of the political elites today is perhaps one of the greatest writers we have today a classicist in his own right senior fellow at the Hoover Institution you've seen him almost every night on television he is professor Victor Davis Hanson professor welcome to America first thank you grab the bastion I'm you've written a piece of the fabulous website American greatness called top get trump forever having read it it raised in me a very simple question I see the president's defense team doing sterling work this week we have fabulous America's scholars such as Alan Dershowitz we have former especial councils like Kenneth Starr who have given very solid lectures lectures I would've enjoyed in graduate school very professorial very fact based the history of impeachment and I thought to myself why is there anything that the president's defense team could say that would change the minds of those who wish to remove the duty elected president from the White House are only for the fact that there's four five senators are there is maybe thirty or forty house members who are you know they have been aware of political reality and are in need of states are congressional district don't wanna can put a cold from the congressional district I put my fault publican lost in a Democrat one Republican is one name is way ahead poll hello I I think that's the only thing it's not about actual crimes it's for a variety of one complex reasoning across town wait until November because I take very agreed upon probably blooms Alexian inn for about eight years of the progressive project pretty much junk for generations and they're just not just one tap on powerful so we go to all these **** drummer do not moment calls twenty nine month Michael Kohn Michael I'm not a tax returns impeachment you were just never yonder worn out because the outlook the alternative Sebastian I guess it's Bernie Sanders on the stone for the new green beer or revelations are apologize for young speech by a little more we don't have much our angle control of the catastrophic miscalculation the ball could be able to stay home and I love should clue without thank you hello they may get and then when I got to lose they're not they called while com there do what we did and how it's gonna be bipartisan and you go do whatever we want the United and they will come and get you look knowledge just giving a call out the kitchen sink speeches always been practical moves on on and I'll talk to quit cold cold creams and broadly our public schools the abuse of power right in Congress but that didn't go anywhere and then made a really crowd because your mistake and betting everything on Adam shell because the more you hear in the less you like it he appeared on the number you can't tell the truth and he's been caught so many cons non and I don't think they want I really don't think they want because I think they want to end on Friday and then say it's really a good we did get a chance to call witnesses but the downside I don't think Adam Schiff wants to go up there on the old and then have the whistle blower band on all give Mary versions of how this functionality because are not compatible with talking to press a Victor Davis Hanson of the Hoover Institution all for all of of the case for trump you need to read this book you you built your career as a historian historian of military history of of of the ancient civilizations of of the Greeks this is the bedrock of western civilization then let me ask you a very simple question that is my concern there is this theory of of social contract that there there are written and unwritten ways of doing business and and and western civilization is built upon them if one of the two parties in the system not a fringe party not the Libertarian Party not not Ross Perot but one of the two party says that we will impeach the president because we count we in the at the ballot box isn't that the shredding of the social contract or even the original call product on which the Republic was founded what what does this do on the long term for the United States professor Hanson well I think if you read our federal sixty five and sixty circle how we can serve them and other essays at the time about impeachment I thought it would be very where very hard to do that's one name that tune because you have to have it how old six separate crafter and they didn't think it looks to be the opposite they didn't envision that some of the opposition party trickle of the house would be a European Parliament terrible but not that's what it's become and there's a lot of Republicans we believe the appropriate approach doesn't want the Democrats so I imagine that the next time we have a democratic president and there are any legal gonna consider doing that because it's now going to be the most off the laundry vintage one as we know it doesn't exist anymore it's been transmog apart in the dictionary yeah but hi this is the way it is and remember we have no special counsel report no bipartisan support you have no public support need this approach currently W. peaks of the nineteenth century of course come president and will premiere Alexian it was just awesome we have in the basement we are not in the house Judiciary buttonholes intelligence committee to selectively things by Alan ship so we just it's just patently dishonest asymmetrical one and I think they're gonna pay a price for me home is on his way to a seventy nineteen seventy two or nineteen eighty four reelection well that's exactly the mangled that's exactly the next question I wanted to see professor if if nothing else exogenous happens if there's no massive external crisis if the economy state keeps going the way it's going and the president is reelected in two hundred and seventy seven days what do you expect the effect to be the knock on effect on these people will will live suddenly be Damascene moment where they say okay we got it wrong way sorry the media the left and will behave ourselves could it get worse and and really how could it get worse well here is the story we just have to ask what did they do after seventy two when they got the winner should not my government a surgeon on both the Compaq we never we haven't won since JFK and us you have a democratic guy with a southern accent DJ can you call the right and unions kind of a central St eighty four the left four my gosh school's out and they did it again with the caucus and then they they didn't do it again I got a guy with a southern accent so I think they'll be a lot of people who say the A. L. C. when school's out and you want to let you wrecked the blue dogs but I don't I'm not sure the demography and the changing twenty first century landscape allow that to happen the Democratic Party is so the Jacobin party control no quality and I don't know if they they kind of extinguisher liquidate all of the people want in all single barrelled omegle dinosaur the nominee list anymore and the people in there a light might exist like Bloomberg S. inviting has been scouring the exits images from renouncing or the prior cell because I don't know if there's anybody left the use of the for a different one with her late and have to come and say you guys destroyed the Democratic Party it's kind of a lot of one whether the Republicans take the house of course Brian's got fifty fifty chance of doing ten cameras on them as well can a pragmatist with a southern accent save the Democrats about trounced this November we shall see first we have to win the election those who believe in the make America great again agenda with talk to professor Victor Davis Hanson senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and the author of the case for trump will be back with a good professor in a

"We don't have a lot of time left together but I wanted to play for you a couple of pretty awesome Ross Perot lamps in before we actually get to them these are from his nineteen ninety two debate from St Louis right here wash you along with the democratic candidate Bill Clinton the president of the United States at the time George HW bush you have Ross Perot do something pretty remarkable I mean he had a lot of people behind him someone that was running outside of the two parties something that I don't know if you'll ever see anything like that again if he was actually running on the ticket as Republican he would have been voted in office it was pretty remarkable he would be Bill Clinton it's just that you know is running up against the incumbent president and the popularity of bill and the rise of the Democrats at that time but before that happens you have the debate here in Saint Louis before that debate happens you have to feed the presidential candidates on my Saturday show the business a family business which you can listen to hear on cable access brought to buy CMA consulting I sit in with great family businesses and one of them is Butler's pantry in Butler's pantry is a catering service so they go to a lot of different venues and events throughout the St Louis region charity events things like that in Washington university over at wash you that's one of their people that they cater to and they were the ones that cater the food for that presidential debate in nineteen ninety two Ross Perot did something pretty awesome before the debate that had to do with food and I pulled the audio from this you're back to here Richard Nixon junior owner of Butler's pantry one of the funniest stories we had goes back to the original debate that wash you handled I think it was nineteen ninety two when Ross Perot was here with Bill Clinton and then George Bush senior and so is a three person debate and I and we had about six days from the time that war she you got the nod that they were going to be hosting this event to to put together catering for really several several thousand people which included the press and we got all the information we needed from the bush camp all the information we needed for the from the Clinton camp but we just couldn't make contact with anyone from the Perot team so the days went by and finally we're just like well we'll we'll wait and see what they want down the camp come is in a couple hours before the actual debate and we get a note that Mr Perot wanted a cheese sandwich and so our chefs being you know the gregarious hospitable people that we are with but several different slice cheese on a platter several different mustards and different polls and of course many different types of bread and we send all this down to the to his campaign office the green room prior to taking the debate and all that was sent back to buy the waiter and the waiter was told that Mr Perot once a cheese sandwich so our chef Italy took two slices of Swiss and two pieces of white bread put it together put it on a plate send it down and that was the last that we ever heard from Ross Perot those are those are great stories and everyone on our team always says that they're going to write a chapter of a book at because I think everyone that has worked a Butler's has a special moment and that's certainly one for me yeah that's quite a moment just give me a cheese sandwich the billionaire you can have anything you wants to eat and what is the deal cheap as ever man just give me a cheese sandwich it's only one isn't that something eight that's it shows you you could have that upbringing to keep in mind you grew up during the depression era that you gotta save save save and a water in cheese sandwich is perfectly fine doesn't matter how much you've earned a self made billionaire you still have that sort of value instilled in him there's a couple of things he mentioned during the debate and I want to play some of this for you this is from Saint Louis and ites I honestly believe this that when it came to strategy time for Donald Trump to run for president that he had to of studied in his people had to have studied that debate from ninety two here in Saint Louis and some of the different points that Ross Perot brought up we play a couple of clips for you the president isn't alone ranger how in the world can you make some of those on popular changes to rage number one if I get there it will be a very unusual and historical.

"The should be all ross perot has died here's the thing to remember about ross perot's world we're living in now is fundamentally shaped by ross perot throat doesn't run in nineteen ninety two it's quite possible the election's outcome is different i don't know if you'd say it's likely that we have a different result because pro siphon votes saw from both bill clinton and george h w bush other factors are that bush was unpopular clinton was charismatic and perot was running on mostly protectionist antitax grounds which feels more republicans and democrats did even then also i'd like to cite the fact that polls at the time did revealed he had more support among republicans and democrats all that said maybe out committee election is it any different but he got ninety percent of the final vote and just based on that we can't be sure we can't even be reasonably confident that perot didn't swings election to clinton in fact notable bush advisor mary matlin toby five thirty podcast that's exactly what he did on equivocally to migraine ross perot cost george h w bush's reelection in nineteen ninety two so the game this out pro affects election george h w bush wins a second term so when that happens i think it's likely that george h w bush were gains a lot of his loss popularity economy was already moving back into recovery so then in nineteen ninety six win and that election comes around we'd have had sixteen straight years of republicans and the white house we'd be looking for a change that's when you can imagine clinton or al gore making a strong run and if they went in ninety sixty economy still going good they probably went into thousand i'm not gonna say there are no nine eleven attacks but it's pretty clear that there's no iraq war if clinton gore president's so who knows oh and also who knows where we stand as far as newt gingrich's rise and the right wing purification asian of the party like i said this is not irrefutable but it's quite reasonable to say that ross perot headed in norman influence on the world we live in today i think it's irrefutable say they're all the people have died in two thousand nineteen so far far perreault had the biggest impact and then even counting karl lagerfeld and carol channing ross perot when we think about him he became one of those character ross perot when we think about 'em became one of those characters actors who wendy popular imagination with indistinguishable from his impersonator here's actual perot we had one is announcer criticize the corner that i used before so since we're dealing with lou do economics a great young ladies louisiana sent me this looters stick and i will use that is my corner tonight and certainly it's appropriate because as you and i know we are in deep rooted here is dana carvey as air sacs perot no no it's not about me say i'm trying to find a candidate for my new reform are why are you making lash about me larry all my is not that ross perot serious man who's been unfairly maligned for his ridiculous aspects no he had many ridiculous aspects he said ridiculous things in a ridiculous way he had ridiculous beliefs bacardi also made some points that are now part of v familiar prosecutors brief against capitalism itself is from one of his long prime time network tv buys where he lectured viewers about economic issues in the middle of all lash what's happening to our corporate executive salaries compared to those of are industrial feel competitors her beating us and head to head competition here's the ratio between worker's compensation an executive compensation in japan here's the ratio in europe and here is the racial united states and he used used the phrase income inequality but that's what his charts were saying and they were saying it more than twenty five years ago that let's look at the net effect on all of us from seventy seven a ninety two the poorest god for the second floor is fast let's just twenty percent of population still lost money the middle fair the three five kiss up still lost money when you get to the fourth fast break even the richest fat is the only place it went up now go to the top five percent of the top one percent top five percent improve their incomes comes by sixty percent the top one percent five hundred and thirty eight percent i'm not saying ross perot had some good ideas and should have been taken more seriously it's hard to do that when mixed in there with a couple of facts with the claim that there is an assassination plot against him over his nafta stance he said that also he assured americans that he had talked to the manufacturer who is constructing forty thousand coffins ferdie american troops who were sure it'd be killed in the gulf war for the first gulf war claimed two hundred ninety two coalition forces killed in action but ross perot tapped into worry he pinpointed the legitimate causes of economic anxiety and he broke through he broke through in ways that many a billionaire of the president would surely envy on the road in twenty twenty this morning the crowded democratic field is getting a new canada billionaire tom steiner announced his bid in a campaign video tom stiers billionaire howard scholtz billionaire both those guys would lovie attention the ross perot go way back when but that will not be happening why well the media's changed but also had this twisted impish charisma that was in fact captivating i will go as far to say that while his two presidential runs were probably not true the civic good his ongoing presence as in 'nigma durable gadfly serve the public purpose in nineteen ninety three when the clinton white house and most democrats were trying get nafta past vice president al gore went on larry king show and for an hour and a half debated ross perot if debated what's the right word say again he throws a propaganda he throws up around us it makes no sense perreault brought his moxie and his obstreperous miss and most importantly his charts in his visuals along this one with a picture of a mexican laborers swinging a hammer which pro describes the larry king cnn viewers this way now or is a good decent man working as hard out making his cardboard shack in a cardboard came from boxers and we used a shift and goes down something about this i didn't interrupt you detour side i was not invented then what should have been go through it must be said made the more coaching arguments during the evening was playing on pros turf that's why he brought along visuals he wasn't satisfied just to provoke the phrase the smoot hawley tariff the vice president's brought photos of this is a picture of mr smooth and mr paulie they looked like pretty good fellas they.

"Of technology dna is complex science subscribe to the secret history of the future season to on apple podcasts or wherever you listen veto pulaski is they publish what they publish nationalist army officer patriot hero in fact he should be one of the greatest heroes of poland he did i would say almost be unsinkable but see unsinkable even though i just read a four hundred page book about what he did is he told people that ski purposefully got entered envy out with death camp didn't know is the death camps than any livered long enough i think he was in there for over nine hundred days to get his story out so that the world would know in one way it worked the story goes out but in another horrible but also familiar way it didn't work because the world didn't care the story though is fascinating it is called the volunteer one man and underground army and the secret mission to destroy out which jack fairweather there is the author jack thanks for coming in thanks i mean my how'd you find out about these existence of polanski has been covering wars in iraq and afghanistan and sitting with a with a father will reports of friends and he just come back from a a job trump covering the memorial at irish fits concentration camp and he'd seen a small exhibit talking about resistance announcements and that was like a complete bolt from the from the blue for may hang on a minute that was resistance and ashley how is that even possible they went against everything guide ever thought about the camera pans that's how i came across that skis name the second source of injury was the fact that nothing was known about him this guy who went to the camp raised and underground tommy purported on the holocaust and yet silent island since i felt compelled to tell the story when we think of our sweats most of its notoriety which from being a death camp and there was no resistance among birkenau and where they're crematoriums were there were just killing but there was a portion portion of the camp that was a war crime and that was a horror which is where they has a some of the soviets in in the polish nationals worthy aim was to be a work camp where they worked a prisoner's to death and that's where polanski was and it from there that a resistance i didn't think was possible but that's where his resistance took root that's that's exactly right he arrived in the camp at its inception when it was a camp polish political prisoners catholics and jews that anyone from poland to the nazis she's wanting to get out of the way and eliminates plaski than witness these steps by which the nazis arrived at the final solution in in our schmitz and that involves some grim experiments the first death chamber using using side home be a pesticide kill prisoners and then eventually he learned that a new camp the canal which was built nearby and he faced this remarkable challenge of how do i work out what's happening in this camp in a secret location and then share that story with well okay that the germans invade polling tries to respond when we say that does not go well there immediately decimated an polanski joins the resistance but that's why they the goal ball quickly turns into an occupation and you know he's one of the first with a few a small band of other resist a stop to think about how do we fight back against the nazis what's that gonna look like you know how do how do we respond has the plan to get get him entered into our sweat how did that take hold so when you get this new camp opens up in in june nineteen forty nine ten months into their occupation people getting sent the hundreds of people getting sent that but no one really knows what's happening as a few room as of this particularly brutal in hosh place so they underground wants to find out because one of the main ways of resistance in these early days is to chronicle nazi crimes fatality allies someplace gives mission is to gains of the camp in south san sending those reports now it wasn't the case the crowded room and they said who wants to volunteer for irish fits pilots ski has had a big disagreement with his fellow command is someone who wants to the tightly underground and i'm also the nationalists sort of ethnic senses christian bullish direction i'm bullets skied disagree vehemently with that and they had made a stand and an actual facts it's one of the sort of the ironies of his mission dry schmidt is that it was partly to get him out of the way get him sent you get him out of wool saw you know that his come on does suggested his name while he went out which the reason that a lot of people went out which which was he was insufficiently ethno nationalist list enough he wasn't sufficiently antisemitic that was one of them he wanted v entire resistant to be for all the polls and not to not to be a pro catholic militaristic antisemitic movement exactly he he was a centrist and someone who really understood that to defeat the nazis to break free of the nazi thinking about different ethnic groups yeah they need to come together that was the strengths of the resistance the he founded they will soar and then tried to rip currents and shove it so to do we know i mean i read the whole book but one question i had is do we have any sense of how long he thought it would be how tough he thought it would be what's the likelihood of death would be how bad the horrors around him would be what did he think going into we know so when the germans may may roundups in warsaw they would shoot people hearing that maybe there would be some guy would escape and they just pluck out ten people and shoot them i mean when the germans came banging on his department doorway he was saying he had no idea you know exactly what was gonna happen to him and it's really a moment of extraordinary courage that he sat in that room waiting to get arrested in some ways that's the moment around where some of the book pivots because i think it's that first act of bravery which revealed so much plex skis motivations and gives you a sense of just how he was able to take that spurt of resistance since irish but the talk about a couple of these scrapes was i wasn't aware that anyone escape from our sweats how many did and what were some of the boulder ways that they did it i i'm so please you touched on that same 'cause for me that's that was one of the most shocking and amazing elements of that ski story that that was this ingenuity and creativity and resourcefulness i mean he was thinking around the clock however to screw up the nazis operations in harsh words and he was remarkably good as it by large he tried to avoid escapes tapes 'cause when the prisoner escaped older prisons were may were punished 'em as as a result a happened the the the holocaust began in the camp two years in he recognized this was something that just you know whenever the risk they need to get a guy let me just interrupt you're less listeners think this is a scape scape sake escape was tactical escape was to get the word out what was going on and ashworth 'cause he knew the cost will be high first of all the skate probably wouldn't happen in the other prisoners remaining would be subject to a collective punishment exactly i think those around about eight hundred escapes from ashford string or you know five years of its existence and only a hundred was successful of which about fourteen of those were arranged by polanski so he was including his are so incredibly frauds and dangerous fat and could leave of course if the messenger was captured to them all being exposed sublet skate arrange an escape in the summer of forty two which is truly one of the most exquisite moments of resistance in the camp a these full man stole ss uniforms from the white house walked over to they camp garaged where the hosts the commandant scott is being choon top up some quoted a hold of the mechanics away in that guys is assessment and then drove straight out the camp k hi how are they were on their way on that way yeah so and and they made it so 'em you wanna play at speeds that korea traveled all the way to us or delivered stat will impose a news so two questions overarching questions one is i don't take it that he is a great hero of polling not ashamed of him but he hasn't been elevated to the status of a mythical go figure i probably should be why because it didn't work in the end because for all his bravery and heroism this camp stood still that's that's a great question a part of the reason why pesky stories not known is because after the war he went back to fight against the communists and they he was betrayed by some of his fellow resistors captured put on a show trial and executed that old trace of his wartime recode was hidden away in the vault the communist votes and it was only in then mid nineties that the family themselves discovered the nature of that skis mission when those when those guys were were opened up so in poland as being a slow rediscovery of his story one which with the the rise of the permanent right wing government has been len extra momentum because they see in his story of a man wrong by history a a narrative that connects with their own yeah their own narrative if this were made into do a movie or let's call it a netflix mini series here's the problem and i think it would have there are so many interesting fascinating things and you have a truly her road person at the center but usually the way that narrative works is we say it say hey life and death struggle but this isn't really a life and death struggle this is a death and death and death and death and death and death and life struggle there's so much death in there there's a just the hopelessness to it and i do wonder if you give him they you know heroes story that he wants to have which just the misery in the jess get in the way of that in some way if you were to turn it into a narrative tile well i i know you mean because i grew up with the learning about the holocaust i never felt able to get my head around it or engagement it wasn't even the most well known examples of literature about the holocaust fiction and nonfiction always have those grace notes of an frank believing the people they're good there's nothing like that here there's just sorrow and misery there is but there is one other factor which is the polanski unlike a million other people who came to the camp is there by choice yeah he chose the guy that he chose the building underground he chose to resist the nazis at the epicenter of that evil and i think for me it offers you know such a startling perspective on the camp won't human beings are capable of despite the death around them despite that incredible pressure to you know to cease to exist the nazis affected in our schmitz polaski didn't you know he kept he kept it going and i think some of the most amazing scenes of the book is when you see him sharing his mission with others and you see that hope spreads around the man i think you know for me understanding that hope is possible in the darkest of ours i think some things that you know we could look to in our own labs you know no matter how much we a struggling you know there is you know you've got to keep it together not just feel self for those for those around you and i i was touched by polanski's story i mean when he went to the camp i you know we were the same age we have two kids each i just you know i felt challenge to learn about how he could how he could resist and that could teach me there is that really touching scene at the end of the book where he would come and watch us on on like a routine boy scout trip where he'd come to warsaw but never interact with his son did his son have any interaction with him you know after he died because there's a question mark as to when his son even died and his daughter died what did they think of their father years later well amazingly 'em versus kids are alive really oh this is not a question mark the dash it's a it's a big exclamation mark was i know day with the andre gives the first person i went to see upon touching touching down in warsaw and i suppose quite none of us are missing him he's in his mid eighties at the time and you know you haven't learned is not his father and you know it'd been told you is the enemy of the state fifty years and you know i was nervous about a lightning on historian telling of course on drivers incredibly receptive to a ever saying delightful engaged or did well in may at the beginning i you know i'm not sure what you'll find or why you should start looking so i remember looking inside the salt looking with you know because you know when so little is known about skis thinking you know every little memory he might have a bad childhoods you know some and some sort of insight into his motivations you know the big question of course needs to wants hardy resistant ashes and you know andre over course many interviews helped me find he 'em i regraded escape upsets he's a scape across some polling left the camp at the same time as he did charged along the fis chiller crushed the dull and andre who sleep in barnes along the way in some forests you did you know it's incredible how many of the places still stand and along the way you would meet families who had shelter that ski and they would say you know the kids now in also in the eighties would you know sometimes have memories this is the son resentful that the government he we have done darfur i guess the majority of his life lied about his father killed his father ruined his legacy lied about it hurt the family name andre is reached a sort of peace where's that so although his his cousin who was in the room when that ski volunteered for the mission as a three year old boy had had memories of it i remember asking him so you know what was what was it like under communism and he just said it would shit kentucky team with a suitable vehemence the icon quite capture but that sort of some dot i think what a lot of the families of patriots 'em light polanski's when through ostracized and denied jobs and just lives sort of haas

I'm already a news czar just because everybody hates it. When Donald Trump says, maybe we should check in and the government should fine people at loosen the liable laws. Right. That's this guy wants a news are. So this is the left's problem was was with the trumps proposal is it didn't go far enough. Yes. Liberal the new listen to this. So this is a news and information on buds men, and imperial fact, checker it's good whenever you have imperial in it. An imperial fact checker who would award media liars heavy fines instead of just Pinocchio 's Russia just passed a a law just like did. It was really good. Basically what they did is. If if the state said that you said something incorrect about them, then you get arrested or fined, and you know, what a little further they said also if you insult the state, but if you insult or say, something factually inaccurate. Well, then you get fine. That's a great propels. They went a little further than that. It wasn't just the state. You had to insult Vlad the Impaler then as long as as long as you be arrested for that. Yes. Saying he was the impale yet. Right. I would be I would be.

I mean, usually the people don't like dictator wasn't a bad word when people call each other dictators back in the day that was a good term became an insult after people started becoming dictators and then killing all their citizens became a little bit of an insult.

"If you went back to nineteen eighty there was a guy named John Anderson who ran as an independent that year. Jimmy Carter was the incumbent president. Ronald Reagan was his Republican challenger, John Anderson was a liberal Republican you had those back then he left the Republican party to run as an independent in the Carter. White House Carter. Political operation was panicked. Petrified because they just looked at it. And they said, well, hey, John Anderson liberal Republican he's gonna he's gonna take votes from us. He's a liberal where the liberal, you know, and they waged a whole campaign that has some some shades of what you're seeing now about Howard Schultz, you know, Democrats in the summer and fall of nineteen eighty don't waste your vote. Don't waste your vote. They had banners. They had chance Carter himself was saying Mondale. Vice president was saying it on the campaign trail, don't waste your vote. Don't waste your vote in the end people got the message largely you know Anderson had been running at around twenty percent in the polls at one point. You know, he comes all the way down to six percent on election day, when you when you take the exit poll and say, you know, who was your second choice. Anderson voters slightly more said Carter and Reagan, but it wasn't anything. Like, it wasn't anything like, you know, Democrats had been fearing all year in one of the takeaways was, you know, voters looked at the choice. Between Carter and Reagan. They heard the message from card or they heard the message from Democrats and a lot of the democratic voters. They took the message, and they base stayed. With Carter wasn't nearly enough for Carter to Winnie. It's so many bigger problems out in nineteen eighty but in lose because John Anderson and the Anderson effect in nineteen eighty ended up not being anything like like Democrats feared it would be.

"So just first of all you have to do that. Now has got a ton of money. That's going to go along way, you know. And again, I one of the other if he does run I think one of the other pages he'll take from Perot's book, obviously is the attack that money for a very extensive advertising campaign pros effective with that in ninety two the ads. He ran were very different. They were different than anything. Anybody really seen before when it came to political advertising? He took he would buy thirty minute blocks of network television time, he would preempt, you know, sitcoms, you know, instead of watching major dad one night, you'd get the Ross Perot infomercial on CBS evening tonight. We're going to talk about how to solve the problems that we defined that country. I think we can come to the conclusion immediately. What it did was image at eight. Guy is different this guy. There's an executive he's sitting at the desk diagnosing the problem. He's serious. All these it created all these sort of positive associations with Perot. I imagine Schultz would would try to do something similar. There is one hurdle that Schulz like Perot can't just by away access to the presidential debates the biggest single hurdle that third party candidacy would face just logistically can you get in those debates 'cause it when you get to the fall of twenty twenty and you got, you know, two three presidential debates, whatever they end up having if you're not on stage, then there's just gonna be a vast number of voters who are just gonna write you off. And right off a vote for you as a waste because clearly you're not serious enough, you know to get into debates per Perot's, a good example Perot in ninety two he dropped out of the race in the summer. Got back in the race the start of October. He was running it like six percent of the polls when he got back in the race and people were saying Perot's a shadow of himself. It's not really gonna matter. They put him in. Debate. Anyway, the two campaigns agreed to it. He kinda stole the show at the first abate and the rest is history. He gets up to twenty percent on election day Beth for any third party candidates since teddy Roosevelt in nineteen twelve Perot runs. Again. In nineteen Ninety-six does not get into debates is vote was cut more than half. He got about. He got seven eight percent in in nineteen Ninety-six part of why we're still talking about Ross Perot more than twenty years later is that he had this charisma. He was known as the populist billionaire steep says that's another lesson for Howard Schultz. Because no matter how much money you have or how many debates you do you still need people to like, you not heckle you at Barnes and noble. So you could spend the money as Ross Perot in ninety two and you could get traction. I'm not sure generation later, if you don't have that populous touch that the money is going to make that big of a difference, especially as I said in the media climate change so much. I'm also not sure money quite matters. The way it used to the other part. There was just this polarization in tribalism. It's really taken root over the last generation where people just have these incredibly strong personal sociation with part of blue America part of red America. I'm not part of blue America. I'm not part of red America. And I think more and more they look at elections, you know, through that lens, which which would just another barrier. Really for for third party candidate. Steve had one last story for me about a third party presidential candidate one more reason, why Democrats maybe shouldn't be so worried about twenty twenty another lesson. I think that it might be worth keeping in mind about third party candidates to is I do think voters kinda kind of figure it out before Perot..

"I do think the thing when Democrats look at the Ross Perot candidacy and think about Howard Schultz with they're really seeing is someone who is able to peel off nineteen percent of the vote. And what that could mean. Yeah. I mean, so the democratic argument, and I think it's plausible. I I don't I don't know. But the democratic argument is basically take a poll right now Donald Trump's approval rating, and you'll find probably a majority say they disapprove of his of his handling of the job. And there was another poll. I just saw this morning. ABC news Washington Post poll, say fifty six percent of people say they definitely would not vote for Trump in twenty twenty right now. So I think Democrats just look at those numbers, and they say, okay, the numbers are there to beat Trump. The the only thing that could possibly screw it up is if those numbers get divvied up if you got, you know, two candidates three candidates, whatever it is who are sort of competing for that. You know, I definitely won't vote for Trump vote. So from. The democratic standpoint. That's why you can't have him in the race. He could just get only siphoned off votes that would otherwise go to Trump the other theory of it, then I'm open to and again, I think it's plausible. We just don't know is how many voters remember we call them in twenty sixteen the reluctant Trump voters and in like him, they didn't they wanna vote for him. But in the end they checked his name off anyway because they didn't wanna have Hillary Clinton as president. They were essentially they were voting against Hillary Clinton. They were voting against the Democratic Party might have even been voting against the system, but they ship. Trump's name off even though they didn't like him, even though it's not something they wanted to do. There's a scenario. I think it's it's not implausible that those same voters are kind of up for grabs in the homestretch twenty twenty. And if you've got a guy like Howard Schultz out there, maybe in a way, they weren't with Hillary Clinton, those reluctant Trump voters are willing to go and vote for they're not willing to go all the way over and vote for a democrat. But they're willing to abandon Trump and vote for Scholtz and in that case. Maybe instead of you know, being a drain on people who who who would otherwise vote democratic maybe it ends up becoming this this sort of halfway house for reluctant Trump voters, and it actually cuts into Trump's side, that's one of the things with these. I think the history of these third party candidacies. There are sumptious about how these these candidates are going to draw their votes that don't always fully match up with what ends up happening. I mean Schultz's said he wants to run as an independent. He's also a billionaire. So it means he can kind of avoid some of the checks and balances of the party system. But can we talk a little bit about? What may what running is an independent really means? And how difficult it is. Yeah. No. I mean, I it's something as simple as ballot access. You know, every state has different, you know, different rules on how to get your name on the ballot in the November election. Some of them are real easy. Some of them are very hard. It costs a lot of money. Takes a lot of time a lot of resources and even these establishment, you know, third party third. Party that we have in this country like the green party the libertarian party. Even we'll have trouble getting on all fifty state ballots. It's not a given. It's not on a Matic..

"What happened back in nineteen Ninety-two? It's not the perfect analogy for today. But no story would be Ross Perot was a well known businessman when he decided to run for office in the early nineties. Same is Howard Schultz is now and like today the sitting president, George H W Bush was in trouble the economy was faltering. He was worried about being implicated in the Iran, contra affair, and what you saw in the start of nineteen Ninety-two was Bush's approval rating was plummeting a year earlier he'd lead the country victory in war. The first Gulf war to get Saddam Hussein out of rack in early ninety two February nineteen Ninety-two Bush's approval rating false of thirty nine percent. And it's in that climate that Ross Perot goes on Larry King show. Larry King Live on CNN is any scenario in which you would run for president. Can you give me a scenario which say, okay, I'm in? Number one had a want. King asked him a bunch of times. Hey, you know, people are looking for would you run for president? And finally on you know, third passer so Perot finally just says if you're that series the people are that series. You register me in fifty states. And if you're not willing to organize and do that, then this is all just. Are you saying to the ordinary folks if you're dead serious starting? Sweat Alyce some sweat. Why do I wanna see some sweat? I said it earlier I want you in the rain. It's amazing because you basically don't have an internet in the way, we know it today. You don't have social media in the way, we know it today. And yet, it's this this sort of viral moment that word of that moment, the clip of that moment, you know, spreads spread slower than it would now. But over the course of days weeks and months this massive, and I truly truly massive grassroots movement emerges that starts getting Perot on the ballot. But spring ninety two by May June ninety two Ross Perot's running in first place in the national polls. He's a head to George H W Bush Clinton is far far behind and people are contemplating the possibility that Ross Perot might actually win the presidential election. Become an independent president blow up the two parties. Of course, this worst case scenario is not what happened Bill Clinton one is. I was president some of blame Perot for Bush's failure to win reelection. But Steve disagrees says pro was just a symptom of Bush's ailing presidency. Not the cause even so pro did manage to get almost twenty million votes..

"The twenty twenty presidential field is getting crowded. They're the big names Kamala. Harris Elizabeth Warren Huston gillibrand, then they're the wildcards like the spiritual guru Marianne Williamson. She announced he was running his democrat earlier this week. But part of what's making people so upset about Howard Schultz is that by running as an independent he can skip the whole weeding out process of the primary, and he's got the money to hang around. If all someone knows about Howard Scholtz is that he runs Starbucks. And that's where I get my coffee. Is there more to him that we need to understand? Or do we not know yet? Yeah. I mean, I think you do need a bigger story than that. He look at the the third party candidacies that have you know, that have gotten some traction. I think the the best one the most encouraging modern example for somebody like Howard Schultz who might be thinking about running third party would be Ross Perot in nineteen ninety two. The guy heckling Howard Schultz that in New York City bookstore and all the people ratio him on Twitter there haunted by the ghosts of that nineteen Ninety-two election like Howard Schultz Ross Perot ran is a billionaire and a Washington outsider. He actually got nearly twenty percent of the vote wasn't enough to win. But some say it was enough to change the outcome. So as Steve to put me in the back seat of his time machine.

Ron appreciate hearing from you. Now, if you wanna talk about the political nominations, and such I gotta say, I hope John McAfee does pretty well as sitting the libertarian party's nomination. I know he's tried to show a scam coin to me. Oh, yeah. That's right. Let's talk about Dallas. Because this was crazy. You talked about it on the call to freedom or earlier this week. I think it was yesterday. You just happen to get an instant message from him. Did it was very. Yeah. Not something you ever talked to him before. I mean, I've are you friends with him? Now, I've come back and forth on occasion, Cher was actually him. It may have been about. But did it come from his account? It was absolutely John McAfee is account. Are you somebody who likes one of his pages? How in the world? Did he end up hitting you up? Then that's what I wanted. And I figured if what I thought was if it were a bot that he would just automatically be sending messages to everyone who likes a thing that he does right. Like one of his pages on Facebook get a list of whoever it is that likes the page and then just start sending your body to send a promo promotional message to every single person there. But you're saying you don't like any of the things that he's got on Facebook, not that I'm aware of maybe it's a friend of a friend or something like that. And maybe somehow he's got a body. That's like tracing through his searching based on crypto keywords. That pull up somebody's profiled. I'd absolutely. Yeah. Okay. So what happened with McAfee? So. After a bit of conversation about his upcoming twenty twenty presidential campaign where he directs me to their discord chat and things like that. So he was a promotional campaign thing. It was like I'm running for president. Here's my discord chat. I hope you'll support me was that kind of accept it was more direct than that. It was less politician. I suppose it was more human being to human being or so say or humiliating too. But yeah, okay. A very good pot for. So you asked did you ask some questions that the bar responded to or the person or maybe it's not about maybe he hired some kid in India or something like that? We're not canned responses, but what it was. Well, I didn't have any ideas on how to test it beyond asking questions and trying to get answers or asking him questions are trying to get answers. I did ask him. I did notice that any of the questions. I asked him strangely. Like he was taking a high school test contained question whether the answer. Like if I said sounds like how's the life? He was he's hotel. The oceanic life is also. This is a weird way for human beings to speak. Like, I acknowledged the words you used. My question is if he wins the presidency and bitcoin is not five hundred thousand dollars. Does he still follow through on his promise to.

"Elevators the left is going after then in Charlottesville. You had almost a singular event or an individual drove through a crowd and killed a woman. I hope he spends the rest of his life in jail those events. Incentivizing sparked this outrage, which is apparent and all the protests over Mahler, and the firing of attorney general sessions that stuff is always information every day that can outrage you even more and more and more when I watch liberals talk. They're going up the ladder the rungs of the ladder. They get to the top. They have nowhere else to go. So they make up more stuff. They keep going. So you're telling me the next two or three years altitude Farber, this is not going to change. It's not just the next two or three years. It's it's it's going back to normal. This is you're telling me, this is normal think about this civil war thinking about Jackson think about the the the hate for Roosevelt by the Republicans during the great depression. It was great hate. It was great hate. And this is more. I hate to say it, but this is normal. So you're saying I'm normal. Why I don't know about that. Now, let's go back one hundred years and one hundred years. This is the third time that a new. President two years into his term gain seats in the Senate probably going to be fifty four might be fifty three. I think Mississippi has got to be a done deal for the Republican Arizona appears to be trending toward MC Sally. And I think in Florida, it's very likely Scott's gonna beat Nelson unless something dramatic. So we're going to have is going to pick up about three to four seats in the Senate, which is starkly on president. But the media coverage the last few days has all been about Trump's failure in the house of representatives in a focus on his success. If somebody would ask you was there a Blue Wave in on Tuesday. What would you say there was not? And I've I've been saying all along in my report that this was going to be no wave election. And that's exactly what it was predicted up before. This is what hap- absolately why why did you predict that had happened? Why? Well, the the party out of power nearly always gains health. Seats in the midterm average about thirty five thirty six which is what happened. That's exactly right. And so that and I s demanded it as being a little bit less than that night. I'm the one mistake I made is tough underestimate the impact of all the retirements by the Republicans in the house. But the average loss in the Senate is six that's well, that's right. And so there was a tremendous plus for the Republicans to gain seats in the Senate also the losses in the governorships were lower than the than the the democratic pundits in media thought and the losses in the state legislatures were also lower than they would would characterize a Blue Wave. None of the pundits. All dishonest winning in Florida and dewine winning in Ohio. Both had never been up. How come to Santa's one in Florida when he was never up on a pole and Mike dewine one in Ohio when he was never up in a poll for two months because the polls were wrong. Thank you. Now. Let you go two years from now we're going to have a very consequential election. I know it's a bit early or about two years away from November of twenty twenty. How do you see twenty twenty playing out? Well, I've started predicting that two years ago. And I think there's an eighty five percent chance that Trump will be reelected why it's really hard to beat any incumbent. We've only had two incumbents be beaten in the last one hundred and twenty years one hundred and twenty years going back to the nineteen hundred correct. The two were Jimmy Carter and George Herbert Walker Bush. Why were they beat they there were four major reasons that it took to beat each and they were little different for both of them. There was a recession, and that's that's a big negative for any politician in the case of Carter. There were he was generally. And in apt president he had the disastrous Iranian hostage crisis. And he had the bad luck of running up against one of the world's great communicator. Ronald. Reagan. That's tough four took those four things to beat him. Now. Bush got beat also by four thanks again a recession. Secondly, he he alienated the Republican base with raising taxes when he had promised not to do it. Read my lips. No new tax exactly third was Ross Perot Ross Perot took votes from both. Clinton and from Bush, but he took more from Bush got nineteen percent of the vote. They got nineteen percent. Twenty one percent here in Ohio, and he came up against the best politician of our time who has Bill Clinton for Clinton to overcome without guy overcame. He never got fifty percent of the vote and neither one of his elections. But whether it was a young Bill Clinton or a young Barack Hussein Obama. I don't see any democrat in twenty twenty like that. Would you agree? Absolutely. There's nobody even close. Alfred to Farber spell Farber for the American people. It's T U C H F A R B E R, two Farber report dot com. What percentage is the Trump's gonna win? Oh, eighty eighty five percent. Not eighty five percent of the vote at eight five probability that he'll be reelected, assuming we're not in a recession Sumer not in some unpopular war, and assuming the Democrats don't have a young Bill Clinton. Those are the things that could happen. But they're very unlikely to happen now for two Barbara, thanks for coming on the Bill Cunningham show, and I love your predictions. Thanks bill. Let's continue with more Bill Cunningham here. The great American live with you every Sunday night. Have you tried that trendy new dating.
