Gary Ginsberg Talks About the Friendship Between Abraham Lincoln and Joshua Speed

"Actually shared a double bed for four years. But it was not uncommon back then for men to jump into bed together, particularly lawyers who were riding the circuit to do that, because let's be clear there weren't a lot of holiday ends back in Springfield, Illinois, in the 18 thirties. So betting was scarce and men would get into bed together without actually having any sexual relations, so they became extremely close Friends. For four years, and it plays out in the most crucial moment in January of 18 41 went after, as they say, the four years where they share every meal together. They share the bed. Together. They share their intimate secrets and fears and hopes and dreams. But in 18 41 Lincoln becomes depressed and he was prone to depression. He takes to his bed and speed ministers to him over the course of a month and at one point Lincoln and wants to kill himself. So speed takes away all of his sharp objects. It was only because of speeds intervention. Do we even know the name Abraham Lincoln today? But the real twist of this whole story is that they then basically speak goes back to Kentucky. Lincoln becomes, as we all know. Famous lawyer becomes a congressman. And then in the 18 fifties, becomes a candidate for the Senate, and his views on slavery are evolving in the 18 fifties at the same time, that speed is the most successful businessman in Kentucky and also his slave owner. And they've grown apart for a pet 18 forties over some disputes over unpaid legal bills. But 18 fifties they start cook corresponding on the issue of slavery, and Lincoln bares his soul about How he is just tortured by the institution of it and and speed defend. It defends the institution and they have a very honest debate in these letters.

The park contains many trails and emigrant museum and the beautiful donner lake surrounded by towering trees. It might be hard to believe that a place so tranquil busy terminally damned but it is said that the energy of a place even a stunning one can be changed forever by tragedy. And that's exactly what happened to donner memorial state park in the winter of eighteen forty-six the previous spring eighty-seven people from the donner and read families. Embarked on a journey from springfield illinois heading west to california brothers. George and jacob donner hand carefully planned the route with james reid but poor leadership and a series of missteps led the men to make few errors. The i was the decision to take the hastings cutoff and untested shortcut that put the travelers behind schedule in fighting heavy wagons and exhausted animals. Slow them down further by the time they traipse through the sierra nevada's winter at already begun and with it of fatal snowstorm. Thompsons hands trampled. She rang out the rag. The snow she'd melded onto it had been warm just moments ago but the wind had put the fire out now. The cold wet cloth was stinging her fingers still. She squeezed the water into her husband. Georgia's mouth moistening his dry lips but he didn't move he hadn't for days he just lay there chain of obligation fastened to her ankle. Tanzim had been against this journey from the start she'd been happy in illinois they'd be well off with a sprawling home in happy children. She had done a teacher there but he wanted more. He insisted on california and thompson could say nothing. Why are meant to nod politely. Even as they watch their husbands arrogance lead eighty plus souls into health and then a month ago. Hope had come. A rescue group had broken through the snow. Georgia been battling ethan. Dan so she'd sent her children. Were the rescuers to brave the wintry pass and get out of this nightmare. Take the children. She said she'd stay waiting out starvation with him. Because that's what whites were supposed to do. They stood by their husbands even when a doomed them. Now george was dying and she'd be all the whole thing had been selfish of him. But that was george always onto the next thing with no thought for anyone but himself her mouth twisted bitterness. Blame was the only feeling stronger than hunker. The wind shuttered the tent blowing open. It's flab with it. A torrent of snow flurries blue inside outside. Tamsin could see dim sunlight shining on the oppressive white woods. The evergreens were tall thick and laden with snow. Tencent thought that it looked like a cage. If ice she rose slowly to pull the flaps shut then looked at george i g shuttered. Then he lay completely still is is open and unseen. She held her hand under his nostrils. No breath he had died after all that she had nearly missed it. She expected more of a spectacle. As george always liked attention. She should have felt sad but all she felt was cold and relentless throb of hunger swelling her belly and there was no question. The hunger was worse

Intrude biji fashion with asking both of you. How did you get started in politics. Teen. let's start with you while i got started in politics. Actually the way. I got started on especially women's equality. Politics was right out of college. I found myself after i graduated from college. I got married to a guy from chicago. That's how i got to illinois and working for state government in springfield illinois in nineteen seventy eight with was the year when we were trying to pass the equal rights amendment and illinois was the hotbed of american feminism. If you can believe that. And so i learned all about you know marching and organizing protests and we would stand in our our green and white while they anti forces were there red and white circling the rotunda of the state capitol building at mail was there and all sorts of folks and here. I was a young twenty something Really just swept up in all of it in. That's how it got started from there and never stopped just working on gender equity issues democratic politics. You know when you live in chicago democratic politics like i'll full-time full contact sport. So that always did that. As part of my work started a group called cook county democratic women which was the first organization to support jentzsch. Caskey for office is not an incredible congresswoman and one of our congressional leaders And along the way met a guy and talented wife. Long enough ago that the three of us can't remember when we first met. Which was barack obama and michelle obama way way way back in the early days of his political career and his and then from there i loaded. That's fascinating and with karen. I met karen when i had my first job in. Dc in two thousand eight. I was the assistant to the political director in care with during communications department and i could tell immediately. I'm like oh this lady. Don't take no bats. Well you know that. Was you know as much as i love howard dean because this was at the dnc. Under howard dean. You know you kind of had to get in his face trying to so in the morning. Communications meetings as a representative from the political department. And you just sit there. I'm like i'm just here. Take notes just passed the notes back to the political director. Karen ran a tight ship off. Thank you so much well so for me. I was. When i got of college. I was working at a facility. It was in the kind of downtown. La pasadena it was a minimum security facility for teenage girls and these girls were incarcerated. They with their children because they were either pregnant or had very small children and so as part of their deal they were allowed to be in this residential facility in their part of there was school as part of it by loved it but it was. It was incredibly hard and one of the things that made it so difficult. Was that a lot of these young women you know. They're learning had learning challenges that were related to many of them had been sexually abused They had been engaged things and they had because this was a time. This was the early nineties When we saw a real explosion and understanding of gang engaging culture in la i went to ucla and girls. Were you know this was a big thing. Right that Women young women were could be just as violent. Frankly what frustrated me was this. This facility would classify a lot of these young women as having learning disabilities that they didn't have as a way to get more money. And i was really angry about that because i felt like you know you're these kids already have disadvantages and you're to be listed as learning challenge or learning disabled. That's a whole other mark that at that time in particular was just going to set the set back even farther.

"Go ahead and just pack that phone. Charger. Now apper not there's always a good chance. That sucker is going to be left behind. A Bill in Springfield, Illinois. Either bill. Welcome. Question for you today. I hope. Our last election to President Trump, there seem to be a little bit of kitty. See this is the one with all this collusion. Did you did you say that last election caused some issues? No, I know it's hard to believe in. It's not so Bill. Gosh. And let me tell you I'm not getting to learn. Order. It just it is a fact, but as soon as you start bringing in politics. Oh, she likes Trump? Oh, she as Trump. Oh, she likes Pusey opiates? Okay. I'm not saying anything I'm just saying that it was a nightmare. Exactly the same time with you on that. Can I guess had we've got the next election coming up and somehow or another? I just don't think it's going to be any better. I'd like to think it is. But I don't think so. But I guess the problem I have is one of the concerns that they brought up through all this is that either the Russians a bit checks or some for an entity. I'll put it that way. Head set up websites information. Well, then in itself, I'm not surprised in, but I guess what I get concerned about. And I when I see stuff on the internet, and obviously, if it's on the internet, it's got to be true, but. That's the problem I have is. How do you actually? Yeah. That is saying and providing their, their definition of sexes revelation is, how can you go back and necessarily check providing their for you can always go up there and try to do checkers. Yeah. Right. But sometimes as well. Because they're always seems to be a little bit of bias. No matter where you go. All of us. I mean, it's, it's hard because, you know, the organizations are set up to look totally legitimate. Right. And you see the website like, well that must be real. I mean, look at it, and then you go to the about section the contact of, and then you find out later and still just a farce because of some other type of agenda that somebody had. Exactly a couple of things get back to a couple of things that you can do is that there's actually Google has something called the transparency report. It's interesting. They don't really publicize. But if you go to transparency report dot Google dot com. That's where you can type in a web address, and it tells you exactly if it's safe or unsafe Trend Micro has one AB, if you go to safe, web dot Norton dot com, and then there's also web of trust, but primarily these sites that, that say whether or not a other particular website, addresses legitimate, what they're looking for Bill there. I remember looking for Maui where. In which is not necessarily, what you're asking for is. How do you see if it's factual or not? And you know they're rely on sites like you know, slopes dot com. But I think what would it comes down to is that, if you see something online, what I would do is, I would maybe grab a paragraph or a couple of sentences and put that into Google of an article that I was questioning and to see where else that article, quote may appear. And so that this way, you can see if it's on this website, it's on. This website is on this then it because quite often it, it will replicate itself. And you may find that it ends up on maybe a site like Alex Jones or something like that. Okay. And you're like okay well Infowars. We're not going to believe anything there. Okay. So but, but most of it will come down to commonsense. You can do a who is search. You can find out. Who owns a particular website? But if it's there is a hidden agenda. Odds are the website owner is going to be hidden as well. So it'll say a private registration, but I think if we stick to legitimate news sites, whatever you considered to be legitimate in the mainstream media, not on the fringe sites. And if you see things posted online, especially on Facebook and on Twitter, Instagram, stab, Arabia hang out. And, you know, sometimes those stories are posted in the algorithms, are there just to make you interact with it. They are manipulating, you, these tech companies are nippy leading your mind. So that this way you go in there and you say, oh, I don't agree with that. Well, what did they do? They just kept you on that site. And you just saw few more ads, and then they just made more money. Right. So don't fall prey to that. But I think as we all move forward, and I'm so glad that you took the time to call today Bill because as we all move forward towards this election season. We all have to use our own head. We have to use our own commonsense. And we have to say, you know, what's really behind that, and question everything because, you know, unfortunately, you cannot believe anything that you read on the internet once again, Bill, thank you so much for your call coming right back. What to do? If you lose your phone on vacation here on the Kim commando.

Veteran meteorologist 'let go' from job after objecting to station's 'Code Red' weather alerts

"Because people are very well, they're outraged actually in Springfield, Illinois. We've been following this story of the weather, man. His name is Joe crane, and he lost his job after speaking out on the air about this, these code red weather alerts that Sinclair broadcasting, his big big boss was mandating for all of the stations to have a code red alert attached to your weather broadcast. I think there was some sort of a couple times a week or whatever, regardless, it seemed of whether or not there was a weather event that warranted, something, like code red, and he sort of thought. Well, call red sounds like it's it's scaring our big graphic. I've seen it. This code red, and it wasn't just him. I mean, he he kind of started off saying that a lot of people on Facebook and comments are saying, that's just too much listening because I don't want to paraphrase say because I think it's better just to hear from him. Joe crane, here's what he said to his viewers, so we want you to know it's not us. This is a corporate initiative, the code red alert, and behind the scenes, many of us have tried to dissuade it for the last few months to try something else that's less controversial to the viewers, and it continues to be controversial based on all the social media that continues to this day. So keep in mind, despite the fact that this facility is owned by a corporation, it's still license under the authority by the Federal Communications Commission, the serve the public interest, convenience and the city. So you still have a voice keep those cards and letters coming. So he was saying these weren't attached to a national weather service, you know, kind of alert or anything like that. It was simply the company says you've got to come up with. A with a red alert. Go ahead and do it, and he didn't seem to feel comfortable with that and the viewers. Really agreed. They said we trust you. You've been this community. We, we know that you're someone who seems to really care, and his boss. Doesn't see it that way. They said you're, you're not following what we're telling you to do. And so you're fire. They had a fast forward to yesterday in the at the Illinois farmers market, the Illinois state fairgrounds. They had a protest people came out with signs saying he's run for president that he is being wrong that he was just being fair, that he's a great guy that, that the station is wrong that he's the one who was telling us the truth. Why aren't you people were really angry about this now? You go to Facebook page. There's a supporters of meteorologist, Joe crane page with fifteen thousand people liking this page fifteen followers to the page as well and just pages and pages of posts of people saying that this is wrong that they did think that, that code red thing was crazy. It was alarmist. And it wasn't being fair to your viewers who really did think that something really bad was happening when there are, if think about tornadoes, moving through the severe weather events that happened in our area that it's important not to scare people when there's nothing to see human beings pushed back on, on, when we do have graphics and developing, and breaking and code red and all this kind of stuff that just seems to be more and more and more in our society. So it's nice to see someone of, of distinguish of someone who, who is respected in the community say that, you know, this is too much on one hand, you support that. And on the other, you know as as the as the station has said is listening to you can't speak out against your company when you're on the company's station. But I think the way he handled it seemed fair. He wasn't saying I hate my company. I think they were wrong. I think that he was. I don't wanna make sure I'm explaining to you. You know what this is all about? And why, why we're using that because I wanted to make sure that, you know, that there isn't anything that you should be totally alarmed by that's what I heard when he said it didn't sound. It didn't sound like he was really making I agree. I think that I would be fully in the camp to

"Here's Springfield, Illinois. Todd your next. I really appreciate your patience or high. Hey, rush on the subject of the Democrats demanding the president's tax records. And I wanted to ask you this. Because it's I imagine it's something you probably have firsthand experience with I would assume with the president's businesses is well, two income did he's probably under propential- audit from the state of New York and the IRS. So if if the government was doing its job, and he was doing something to fairy wouldn't they already caught him? Theoretically. Yeah. But then who would know that one of the things that about about IRS and tax returns. Is that there is an implied. Actually, a stated promise that all of that remains confidential unless criminal activity occurs in which and criminal activities charged. And that's when people find out about your point is there hasn't been any criminal activity charged with Trump his tax return. So it must mean that they pass the smell test. Yeah. Yeah. I think it's it's a logical conclusion to make I look I don't know if Trump is under perpetual audit. I I know of people who I'll tell you this. I'll tell you back. I don't think I'm speaking out of school here back in the days when the syndication partner of this program was clear channel the offices were down there in San Antonio. And that's where Mark Mays got the Harry Reid letter. Harry Reid demanding that he make me apologize. For this phony soldier business. And I said can I have that letter and Mark Mays the CEO time game tonight auctioned that letter off on on whatever's EBay and raised a bunch of money as a prime example of government overreach. Trying to silence. The corporate pressure an American citizen me anyway when I went down there. And I had numerous meetings with the clear channel people. There was a corner office. And and every now, and then somebody would walk into that office and come out and then report to Mark Maguire. What is what's in that office a lot of activity IRS? The IRS. What are they doing? Here. We saw their hair to have permanent office here. You mean the IRS a permanent? Yeah. I mean tax returns tax. It's a daily exam there. It's not uncommon. The IRS has offices in practically every corporation like this. I did not know this. I thought these massive corporations tax accounted lawyers prepare gigantic returns cinema every April like everybody else does. But it's such a massive job keeping up with corporate financial that the IRS has. Employees offices actually on the grounds of I sure it's it's something was not exclusive to clear channel while going with this is I wouldn't be surprised if something the size of the Trump organization there was something. So I don't know that to be the case. But and I don't know that somebody like Trump is under constant audit. I've known three people who are I've known three people in my life who get audited every year. And no they're going to get audited. Every year. And it's not because they've been caught. It's not being it's because of the way their finances are arranged the deductions that they take a bunch of the returns, they submit have a bunch of red flags the computer just spots red flags, and they get audited every year, and I know it and it's part of their life. Now, the IRS is not supposed to tell anybody. They're not supposed to divulge one thing on any individual or corporate tax return. And can you imagine a temptation, let's say you're you work at the IRS, and you're making a government salary, whatever to seventy five hundred thousand dollars. Let's say you're reading people magazine's list of highest paid Hollywood actors, and it's got. Pick an actor and a hundred million dollars last year. So you go look up their return. If you can't find out is that really true. And you learn whether it is or not. Now, I do not also don't know what kind of freedom within the bureau, the IRS bureau that employees have I don't -magine that. You can't imagine your average employee cannot go look up any Americans tax. But somebody in there, can we've gotta have department heads presidents, vice whatever the corporate structure is within the IRS. Somebody's got to be able to go in there. And so media is constantly reporting. What people earn and somebody in the IRS can go look at their returns. As if the media's right, or if it let's say that people magazine reports. Oh, I don't know. Alec Baldwin with an annual income of say seventy five million dollars, and that's been published and they go in there Alec Baldwin is making one hundred eighty thousand dollars a year the temptation. This stuff about Alec Baldwin. There's no way out there claiming he's paid eighty million. There's no way maybe one hundred seventy five imagine the pressure there under and how many IRS employees, do you think are? Reached out to by various media organisations. Hey, here's an extra couple of tickets to the meth ball, if you can tell us what so-and-so's tax returns, and somehow over all of these years there haven't been too many breaches the IRS controversies that we have encountered are such as Lois learner's, not granting tax exempt status to conservative legitimate, conservative fundraising organizations, but releasing people's tax returns. You really don't see it. Can you think I can't think of one either? And I'm I don't I'm not saying hasn't happened. But I can't think of. Any individuals tax return being released? So during this Trump tax controversy where the Democrats are making hay out of this Trump's not paying taxes and Trump won't release it Trump's lying about his net worth translating income. And you magin the pressure big imply applied IRS employs by media and others and yet. Nobody knows. But the caller has a good point here. If there had been any criminality over the years involving Trump's tax returns. Trump would be charged and everybody everybody would have heard about it. Or or know about it? And I think that's not what I think that the the Democrats are pursuing Trump's tax returns just because Trump won't release them, and it's like the Russia collusion scandal. They are convinced that Trump's cheating. They are convinced that Trump is not as rich as they are convinced that Trump is not paying fair share. They just wanna find evidence of it. And it's like everything else when they find out the truth. It's to be anything like they think it is. But it won't stop them for making something up about it. Anyway, I appreciate the call another brief obscene profit break. We'll be right back..

You wanna talk about? Senator Dave Kayla has been trying to deescalate this cross state conflict. We can't just keep escalating the Levy wars. He put forward a Bill to try to rein in levee districts in his own state. But we really couldn't come together on this at all for fficials in Illinois. There's just not much incentive to bring their levees down the people in Missouri can complain all they want to doesn't cost me vote.

We have to look at this in a much more global way for the record the state of Illinois did send a notice violation to the sny levee district in twenty fifteen telling them that their Levy was too high. So another letter from another agency, but nothing changes. So I asked him what else can the state do should the state start filing lawsuits to bring Levy district's in line bizarre, very political. And you know, that's why we're trying to come up with a plan that hopefully make some sense out of this. In other words, don't hold your breath. Nancy? Nancy isn't holding her breath. But she's not giving up either make these people take those levees back to authorized height. She's convinced that there's one more government agency that could actually do something here famous can do it..

And he would say it's in the building here on our left, which you can see has been preserved and even the lettering on the various sides of the building indicate that it was. Verse restore in a court house and a post office, and and Lincoln's law office was on the upper floor. Lincoln's home, we'll go to that neighborhood now is about six blocks away. So it was real easily accessible for him to walk from his home to to work and his law office was right next door to the day capital was the racial makeup of Springfield at the time. Well, there were a lot of Germans and Irish immigrants, and there was a small black population. And roughly three four percent something like that. But all of that relatively small percentage are awful lot lived within a three block radius of Lincoln's house, so Lincoln would encounter black people pretty regularly because he walked back and forth UIs office, and there were servants who worked in his house. They were people who black people and made his boots. Shaved and cut. His hair was a ram Lincoln's relationship to his black neighbors. He would see them regularly and some of some of the black neighbors worked in his house, and he was on cordial terms with them and one of them in particular, his barber a gentleman named William Florvil, Billy, the barber was a real friend.

It's a classic garage center. Right. Well, no, it's it's a driver nineteen sixty seven Mustang convertible, but you drive it to work every day. Oh, no. No. No. No. So not your daily driver. But I mean, it's drive a ball. But it's not. It's not okay. I got a nineteen sixty corvette. That's a frame up restoration in my basement. All right. I you can count that. If you want to count it. But more that that's not going to go down in value. Usually it's going to go up in value. Right. You have. That's that's not your regular car. That's an extra car. Right. Right. And so it's it's more like a hobby, but I wouldn't count that in the things with a motor in them. No, you know, that are going down in value. So. Nineteen sixty vet will go up in value. It's it's a great restoration your sixty seven. What do you call it? What was it a Mustang or Mustang? Yeah. That'll go up in value. That's classic body. Style is wonderful as long as you maintain it. And it's you know, it's got reach in reasonable condition. You know, you're going to see some increases. They're probably already have been in the family since one thousand nine hundred seventy two and it's been grabs kept the entire time. That's a beauty. That's wonderful. Yeah. I wouldn't I wouldn't call that my retirement investing. It's just a hobby. That's not costing you money. That is a hobby that just some fun to have get out and drive on the weekends is pretty and that kind of stuff, and that kind of thing, and it's like, you know, I've got a gun collection. It's not it's not what I'm planning to retire off of. But I buy them, right? And I know a little bit about firearms. And so, you know, when I buy something, I usually make money on it usually worth more than I paid for it. And it's the type of gun that will go up in value. Same kind of thing you can do that with art. I've got a friend that has a huge wine collection that he, you know, expensive French wines that he bought years and years ago, and they've gone up in value, but you wouldn't want to bet your retirement on that. Right. That's just like a hobby. That's not expensive are in the sense that it doesn't cost you money. Gotcha. Okay. Yeah. If you one more quick one. Yes, sir. 'cause I'm actually into retirement now. So my income has gone down about thirty percents from just a matter of a couple of years ago. But do should I continue even with his drop in income? I'm still we've managed to still redo the budget and quit almost fifteen percent. And long-term mutual fund savings. How old are you? Fifty six. Okay. And how much is in your nest egg. About one hundred sixty five thousand dollars is your house paid for. No, okay. I stopped that. I would still work on both of those goals. I mean, I wouldn't be panicked about it. What I'd like to see adding something towards retirement. Maybe it's not fifteen percent unsure income's gone down dramatically, but certainly the fifteen percents of the lesser figure now so and I want you to move towards that house being paid for because I'd love for you to have let's say, you're fifty seven you're sixty seven and the house is paid for and you've got five hundred thousand. Right. That's where we ought to be headed towards. I mean that would get you into a sweet spot there where we don't have cell the Mustang to each Sunday. Yeah. Let's get the house. Let's move towards those goals. I'm not as it's not a breakneck speed, but you're a young retiree too. So. You may find some things you could do as an encore career that you enjoy and are fun and that make money more than you ever did in your life. It's not that unusual at your stage of life, by the way. See a lot of people having in their fifties. Particularly their late fifties. What's called an encore career that second bow after the curtain comes up, you know, and goes back down and all that. And you come back out. And sometimes you catch a sweet spot there. Catch a wave and. I see people make some serious money there. But I mean, you could just if you just did something on the side that was fine and add twenty or thirty thousand dollars to the equation. You don't have to is just you're a young retiree. So that that's a possibility. Jennifer is with us in Jacksonville, Florida. Hi, jennifer. How are you? Thanks for taking my call. We love your show. My husband, and I thank you. How can I help? My question is is I've been dreaming about this. And I I know it's not the best thing. That'd be running your steps that investing about fourteen hundred dollars the next couple of months, and here a new small business that has to do with the health ministry is actually I know you preach out not buying supplemental policies and whole life. Coverage actually used to sell out fast. And I just from watching your show, or did you realize that probably wasn't the best thing to do for people? And I got I'm getting out of that shield. My husband's in the navy. We realize we have some debt.
