"Upper ranks of the American military has changed over time and according to the military's needs for most of the history of the United States. Its military has been quite small, compared to European countries, and there wasn't a need for a large and complicated system for organizing the top commanders in the armed forces. For example, the highest rank ever obtained by George Washington during his lifetime was that of Lieutenant General, which today would be a three star general. He never attained a higher rank because there wasn't any. In fact, after Washington, there were no lieutenant generals in the American army until eighteen fifty-five when Winfield Scott. The longest serving soldier in American history was given a promotion to the rank. After the civil war, Congress authorized the newly created rank of general of the army and a word it to you. Lucy's s grant. and. Here's where I have to start splitting hairs and being nitpicky. There is a difference between rank and insignia. Today we can say the rank of general by the number of stars they have, but stars are just the insignia of the rank. The reason I bring it up. Is that grant was the first person in US history to hold the rank of general of the army, and there was no established insignia for it grant used four silver stars to denote his rank. After grant there were three other men that held the rank of general of the army in the nineteenth century. William tecumseh Sherman was appointed to the rank after grant, and he changed the insignia to two silver stars with an American Eagle between them. The final holder was Philip Sheridan. Who held the rank briefly before his death? After the death of Sheridan, in eighteen, eighty eight, there were no more generals higher than the rank of Major General Aka a two star general. At the start of World War One. The United States created general ranks above two stars and the system they created is pretty much the one we have today. So let me give a quick overview as to how general officers in the US military our bank today. A Brigadier General a star general. A major general is a two star general. Lieutenant General is a three star general. And, a general is a four star general. The rank is called just plain old general. There's nothing else to it. These are currently the only four ranks of used in the states, military today and the only four, which were used in World War One. Tasker h bliss and John J.. pershing were both appointed to the four star rank of general during World War One. Cure have to make note that the World War One rank of general headed insignia of four stars, which was the same as the insignia used by general grant after the civil war, but his rank wasn't that of general but General of the army..

"Age of eight the chances of high school graduates on a drastically decreased and the chances of of incarceration or drastically increase. We have a chicago. I'll go <hes> <hes> tribune. Article recently talked about how forty percent of the girls in chicago public schools are thought to have a form of p._t._s._d. p._t._s._d. There is no less severe psychologist. Tell us on the p._t._s._d. Of returning veteran from <hes> afghanistan in iraq now the political class has done nothing more than to normalize allies the despair of these children because they're not old enough to vote so they don't represent a constituency. They're not old enough to to <hes> work so they have no financial cancel leverage and in a system like ours which has become little more than a system of legalized bribery. What chance do these children have to compete heat with the cloud of the corporate sources so they moral politics so when you asked me how we do it by stating immoral politics including not only with the children but a deeper true telling and restitution addition around race around native americans and around our national security agenda i am only one of two presidential candidates even talking about u._s. Military policy nucleus <hes> <hes> national security ginette cetera. What does that tell you. It's pack a couple of those at one at a time here <hes> number one. Let's talk about <hes> reparations one of the biggest applause lines you got last night in oakland by the way one of the more diverse crowds i've seen among any of the <hes> the <hes> candidates check out this year and you wanna talk about reparations for african american folks to compensate for the legacy of slavery. You wanna lot two hundred to five hundred billion dollars over twenty years. It would be distributed by council of african american leaders as you said it's not for you you know sixty seven year old rich white woman to be gone and goofed on some of your rival candidates who say <hes> <hes> and let's call them out warren and bernie and beddoes. Let's let's establish a council to study a commission to study this issue like hey after four hundred years though we have enough evidence and then there was when glenn who said you can't just write checks. Who was that come on it. It do adoptive okay all right first of all. How did you come to that position addition. Where are you coming from at. How did you get to that well. Where'd you get that two hundred or five hundred billion dollars at the end of the civil war in eighteen sixty five live general tecumseh sherman promise every <hes> former slave family of four forty acres and a mule there were between four and five million slaves at the end of the civil war so if you actually did the math in today's terms that would be trillions of dollars now. It's like when somebody bid on a house. <hes> somebody as i'll say okay this one. I want to sell my house for well. You've got to come in within the range because if you come into low i'm not even going to call you back so i feel that hunt that i feel trillions is i wouldn't even support it myself and i don't believe it's politically feasible anything less than one hundred billion almost insulting so i i sense that two two hundred to five hundred billion now remember politics is an art as much as it's a science. I sent the two hundred five hundred billion politically feasible that why study by the or anything that you're basing that figure on her just just starting dollars. You've got the fact that if you actually to do the math it would be trillions. You got the fact that <hes> one a hundred billion. I feel myself is an insult. If you don't give enough money right first of all if you propose too much money it's it's politically dead in the water. If if you propose to little money than even if you get it you're gonna have a younger generation of american black people who say oh yeah right which means the whole thing would have been in vain so i believe the two hundred five hundred billion is a politically feasible number to lay on the table. Listen anything's the negotiation but i'm san then i'm starting with that number as you do with any negotiation right okay so and and you say to the council of leading african american leaders to two would be administering this and you mention tennessee coats and such have you asked him to about talked. I have not met ten tallahassee caught but i have talked to sandy charity abuse of the president of duke university he he's at yes and derrida at duke university. Yoko studied this for years and i have great trust in him in faith in him. He said how would be do this. I said i'll tell you how we do this. I'm elected president. I call you up and i say sandy. We're gonna spend a weekend camp david. Who do you think should be there though so that that's what we do this and you know what i spend enough time around politicians including in the white house and including not i. I'm not trying to do my time there but i've had enough to get that how it works in politics but sending people to sit down talk and that's what i would say. We're gonna have weekend. We can bring. Let's start and <hes> you would. How did you come to this. Why did wise reparations. I mean so much to you in running for president. I am submitting to the american people a plan for our transformation. We will not transform donate will be donald trump if all were talking about his incremental change or external change on a level policy. Yes you said this is as you presenter. Website issues are not always the the issue so the issue of what they call an alcoholics anonymous admitting the exact nature of your character defects and taking a fearless moral inventory. This is how it live stint form. This is how systems transform this is. How countries transform this is why germany paid eighty nine billion dollars in reparations to jewish organizations and world war two why the united states ronald reagan signed the american civil liberties act where twenty to twenty thousand dollars was given to each surviving mm prisoner from the the <hes> german japanese internment camps. The idea here is that just like the catholics go to confession of the jews news on yom kippur. You can't have the future you want unless you're willing to clean up a pass. That's what i want to do. As president i went to help this country the end one chapter and usher in a new one so we this civil war ended in eighteen sixty five and we we are still passing generation to generation degeneration this baton of toxicity. It's time to start a new chapter here. That cannot be <hes> <hes> ended with all bernabe ended just through differences in housing policy or differences in even in criminal justice we we need getting more fundamental break with the past in many areas we need a fundamental pattern disruption with economic social and political realities that have come to define our would when you talk about moral politics the other candidates express their moral politics. Let's say an medicare for all. I want to believe it's morally to cover everyone with health. The everyone should have access to healthcare or they say i want a and i think you you believe this to a. I want to have early childhood education because yes. I believe that's morally right. Is what's the difference in policy and you're saying sort of different <hes> different terms. I'm not saying that my visions of the world is more moral than any other candidates. That's not what i'm saying but i am saying this. The republicans often with republicans. They don't walk talk but often with the democrats. They don't talk their walk. This this over secularized over corporate is conversation that has come to define the democratic party has not served us it has made many people within and the faith traditions fuel minimize condescended to and i know a lot about that right now because i'm experiencing it from them. My were somehow less less like if you bring up any dimension of moral spirituality ready that you are less sophisticated less intelligent less intellectual <hes>. How's that worked out for you. Guys is how i say to that. Are you sure you really want to go this way. You sure you wanna make everybody into health wellness out there feel like they're dismissed and condescended to how they're going to work for you this. I think it's just outrageous actually but more more than that i grew up at a time whether it was bobby kennedy talking about the soul of america martin luther king even j._f._k.'s that we cannot afford to be materially rich and and spiritually poor so number one. I'm talking about a larger conversation but number two. If you had that larger conversation you have to look at these things on a level of policy so so when you talk about healthcare i agree with you when you talked about the level of children. I think you're making my point. This goes so much deeper than than universal pre-k. We have millions of american children who are traumatized before they even get to pre k. We have a relatively high level of maternal mortality. We have a relatively high level of infant mortality -ality. We have children who are not being fed enough. This goes on way before they even get to preschool. So what would you do about those kids. I want to have the united states department of children and youth. I want to sit down. This is the power of the presidency a coordinating body. I want not only educators. I want experts in childhood in in childhood psychology and the childhood brain neuropsychologist. We now know things going on in the brain of a child under eight. They didn't even know a fifty years ago. You really want peace on this planet. You want prosperity on this planet not just in this country but on this planet address the children. I want a massive realignment of the investment in the direction of america's children. I want every school in america to no matter what neighborhood to be a palace of learning and culture and the arts and no other democrats are not saying that all right. Let's talk about vaccinations because i know this issue keeps coming. Marianne is rolled her eyes at because it's issue keeps coming back back in your campaign now while back in it's been reported. You've pushed back on this. These thought mandatory vaccinations were quote conan or william. You walk that back. You said could not have said that. I'm sorry that did and you said you're pro vaccine pro science but you also have been often been skeptical about the vaccinations and the need it for them. I wouldn't hold on just because this has become so big. Let's be clear skeptical about vaccinations. I have not expressed skeptical about big pharma. In general i have expressed in there is a big difference. Yes you said i think there's a quote. This is a quote. I think there's a skeptic skepticism which is actually healthy on this issue of vaccinations and you said that the bill maher yes <hes> but it gets tides at the forms ago yes. This is a few years ago <hes> so i wanna talk to you about something that's happened today today today is c._n._n. As you as you know is reporting that <hes> on a radio show hosted back in twenty twelve your guest was the author gwen olsen and she wrote a story called ca- or book called called confessions of an r._x. Drug pusher caller called in she said she had avoided the vaccine in her three-year-old daughter by not taking her to the doctor and you said let's have gwen answer and then you said <hes> curious myself gwen i know i agonized on this <hes> agonize as a mother on this topic so please just clarify this because this is important 'cause we've had you know measles outbreaks and such this year..

We've normalized so many of these things there's physical michael abuse mental abuse emotional abuse sexual abuse but because it happened so often and it's also not being discussed. Our children are being being groomed to perpetuate that very system. It's not gonna deal if you don't talk about it so those factors are pretty important and the government has identified those. It's not something that i made up. It's not something that somebody else made up. The government identified it and they exist. The point of denial is ridiculous in two two thousand eighteen if in two thousand eighteen year denying that aboriginal people have it worse than everybody else you're also the same person who said that black people shouldn't have rights are also the the same person that said lesbian shouldn't be allowed to marry. I mean you can go through history and realize how many of these things have changed over time because there was so much resistance from the mainstream mainstream society and we're this last relic of a of a time when white people for so long wanted us to either be romanticized sized image of the noble savage right th that you know pretty and doesn't speak english but is very stoic or they want us to be something that is a drunken wild savage person <hes> and if you're not either one of those things then you're really dehumanized because if if i'm in my regalia walking down the street people will want to take pictures with me which is its own social issue but normally i may have the same a person might cross the street as long society <hes> others the aboriginal person and other people of color and women and homosexuality <unk> homosexuality and gender differences as long as we continue doing that we inevitably cannot advance as as human beings as human races and that ah animosity can only brew and i fight it everyday i try not to be you have animosity towards other groups but damn it's hard.

It's not that bad you know. No one is that bad you know tanya to lag in conversation with richard simon taylor therefrom leave out violence nova scotia and now back to big brother's hunger the second of the twenty eighteen c._b._c. massey lectures in halifax. I wanna step back in time now a little bit. I'm gonna talk about fourteen ninety three that was one year after christopher columbus landed on the shores of haiti pope alexander created a series of orders call the papal bowl and they were used to legitimize the spanish empire's conquest of the americas. Those orders known also as the doctrine discovery were based on the term of terra nullius. That's latin for land belonging to no-one. That's an interesting concept opt so the thought was cave got all these empires in their sailing across and they're going through these papal bulls in in their hands. Are they're going to places. This is where quote unquote land belongs to win but for the first people that were already living here there were living on turtle island land belong to everyone lynn couldn't be owned. It was shared human life doubts to the laws of nature for example generations of plains indians lived off the buffalo hunt for centuries. They lived off the buffalo hunt in northern norway norway in scandinavia the sami indigenous people to those lands they have lived for as long as time has been around and they've lived following the reindeer herds in the north in you eat hunt seal and whale they move with the seasons seasons things change relationships to the land is sacred separation from the land causes a spiritual separation for the roman catholic church for the spanish the portuguese the dutch and the french empires and for the conquering british the kind of took to heart the concept of land belonging to no-one like i said earlier but as the age of empire waned beginning to sort of follow it a fashion is still kind of went with this belief thus this nullified this belief that the physical existence of the first people didn't really matter the papal bulls were in their hands and they could come to this land and they could spread the christian religion and the catholic faith so that quote the health of souls be cared for and that barbarous barbarous nations be overthrown and brought to the faith itself. I was taken to heart quite a bit and it was used for history. I'm gonna talk talk a little bit about what happened. In america you heard me talking a little bit about people moving with the planes with people on the planes moving with the buffalo. I'm gonna bring you to in july. Fourth seventeen seventy six the thirteen colonies decided to become independent from great britain therefore they formed the united in states of america in seventeen eighty three the british empire and the united states signed the treaty of paris which reorganized is the u._s. has an independent republic but the thing is is that no provision whatsoever were made for native americans. The people that we're already living on the land or for their sovereignty all pushed aside land was ceded to the americans in ohio in western new york in pennsylvania in virginia native americans would have to spend centuries fighting for their existence and the fight fight continues in north america. The stealing of lands was legitimized by treaties with separate indigenous nations and those were done well residential school set up all over the continent so they weren't to set up in canada doesn't just happen there but also happened in the united states and also to in the united states there was kind of a divide and conquer strategy because what they were doing in the u._s. They were signing lining all of these treaties so many treaties legally binding agreements three hundred seventy one of them actually from seventeen seventeen seventy eight to eighteen seventy one and the thought was divided up. Let's make all of these treaties and everything and you know there was an american general general that said we have made a thousand trees in this country and we haven't abided by one of them may eighteen thirty the president andrew jackson signed the indian removal act at legally entitled the president to resettle all american indians east of the mississippi river but the cherokee they wouldn't go see they had faced expulsion before they had faced expulsion before from the gold rush in georgia and this time they refuse to surrender under this was really interesting too because at this point there were a lot of cherokee that we're living in western style houses that were participating in towns. They were part of the new settler society. There are playing by the rules they lived with everyone else but they were still forcibly removed from their homes on put on forced marches or they were held in prison camps if they you didn't comply during that time four thousand cherokee died of disease exposure or starvation you know i was talking about <hes> general william tecumseh sherman. Who's the one that's said said the quote that i was talking about earlier and it's kind of ironic to his name tecumseh because he was named after tecumseh the shawnee chief sherman was also quite famous for ordering something else he ordered the slaughter of five five million bison quite remarkable when you think about that the plains indians lost their food source they lost their hunting eighteen ground their way of life this this was a violent act of cultural cleansing getting rid of the animals get rid of the animals get rid of the indian way of life. He was in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine that the u._s. Government introduced american indian in boarding schools and by one thousand nine hundred one hundred fifty of these schools were set up across the united states now one hundred fifty nine thousand nine hundred in canada. We had one hundred and thirty nine indian residential schools schools were set up for the same purpose purpose on both sides of the border. I'm gonna talk a little bit about one of the architects now of the indian residential school system here back doc in canada and the reason why i'm gonna talk about him and his name is duncan. Campbell scott is because he was the superintendent super intendant of the department of indian affairs from nineteen thirteen to nineteen thirty two and as such he was the chief architect of candidates indian residential the school system also a poet you know some people still want people still study his poetry and i was writing a story. This is a a little bit of a side but it's a good story. I was writing a newspaper article.

"Bligh's, the William tecumseh Sherman. There's a great deal of fighting before, baba Connell, is the author and we go immediately to the second seminal war because after Sherman graduates, he is sent to Florida to Fort Pierce is my note. Correct me if I get this wrong, Bob, Fort Pierce, and this is a place that is up against these in the seminal Indian wars, and it's in the swamps in the, the, the outback where all the fighting is. And he yet, he's he pretty much lives at the beach and doesn't seem fighting, what strikes me here is, is this, where he learns that the way to defeat and surgeons or guerrillas or natives, who fight the way, the Indians, do is to deprive them of their of their food to deprive them of a resupply, because that's how they defeat them. Did he learn that there? I'll tell you probably not. I probably learned it at West Point and odd way, too, because we just get back just two minute. Although the faculty taught a sort of odd variety of mathematical, and even some drawing classes this, and that and the other thing they were assistants that were brought in from the regular army to train the men and the military elements, you know, drill, and that kind of thing, but also to kind of mentor them. And this is way this knowledge was passed on. This is basically been known since the colonial period, if you attacked a because Indians were swimming, and burn agricultural is at best, mostly hundred gatherers if you tack their food supply. They, they couldn't survive. What struck me is how similar it is to his understanding of the Atlanta campaign in sixty four sixty five to go to, to get in and destroy the house ability. To resupply itself to destroy the confederacy tear up the railroads and go after the supply centers, which become Atlanta. Anyway. The war's over in forty one he goes on to South Carolina. This is a man who's filled with action covers the continent. He meets up with his roommate, Stewart vanfleet. There's Braxton Bragg again. Ellen corresponding with Ellen. But he's moving all over the west was this typical of young officers. He goes off to he takes the riverboat up and down the Mississippi. And he almost memorize is the terrain without knowing that the future means that he's gonna fight over this terrain is that typical of other officers. Yeah. I think they got to move around quite a bit. It was understood that these long term assignments to he was on Sullivan, solvings island, fort mold free. Basically, you had to go through the routine, but the commanders understood that these young men that keep their military edge into keep them interested, they ship them out. Sherman was on, I think at one point on a court martial that room through the area in Georgia, which he later fought fought in and he remembered precisely and, and also officers frequently went on long term leave so Sherman use that Lauper tune ity moral less moved through the south, and then go up the Mississippi River and work as way back. Let's get him to California, the Mexican war breaks out. But sure. Airman is assigned eventually to recruiting and then to the third artillery, which takes one hundred ninety eight days to travel from the east coast to the west coast onboard for one hundred ninety eight days with one hundred sixty men. But one of them is Henry Haluk boys that a major figure. They're young officers together, they look like they're a friendship but they turn into rivals. What was Haluk like? Well, how was of far more the politician at the military politician? Indeed, he had a kind of legalistic mind. He was an excellent administrator, but a man of action he wasn't. But these this trip to California for these two guys was basically an odyssey of disaster because they literally miss the war. If you're in the military, you don't wanna miss a war. So it was interesting how they both compensated. Howick actually adopted much better than Sherman. Sherman had a lot of what learning to do. And but then things look, actually, they were both always considered competent officers, and I said at one point Sherman was restless and luckily, sort of set off the goal Russian got back, right? Fortunes, child remember spring of eighteen forty eight. All of a sudden news comes from Sutter's mill that something's happened is Sherman gets up there with what a group of men, he takes contingent. And he's is he the one who sends the news to the president, that gold is we've hit gold. No commanding officer did. And that had to be the goals. But the goal they had like a bucket of gold, and they literally a ship that twenty pounds of gold to president Polk. Yeah, that's amazing. And he was there. He knew all the liberty to congress, and then he gets back to Washington, and they wanna talk about the gold strike, because they're just we know now that this actually bales the United States out of a lot of difficulties for the next fifty years. He dines with Winfield Scott, whom they called fuss and feathers. He was head of the army. But again, this is a leading up to the marriage. He is travelling in the hallways of his seniors of the lords of the army, and of the. Country. Did he take all that naturally? As as this is who I am. Or did it overwhelming? That part of it never overwhelm Sherman. He he was he. He just was never intimidated by anyone in a person to person. Contact is problem was coming onto strong. Yeah. You talked fast, we're gonna get we're going to get him married. But after that he goes off for more adventures. The book is fierce patriot. We're ten years to the war now. And this is Sherman already having seen war and gold and now the presidency, and then he's off to see San Francisco fears patriot. Baba connel's, the author, I'm John Batchelor.

"How long would it take for SUNY? She is encouraged to kind of bury the hatchet get along with one another starting right now or similarly Israel Palestine, the stuff is not going to get worked out of the system quickly it will. But what I what I would say is that there is an aggressor in the situation. And that if the slaves were freed and the clan didn't fuck with them. They probably would have just been farmers. I don't appellate yet. I haven't found her point. No. We should applaud because if you know. Look Israel would go. Okay. You know, the Palestine's. There are people in pal the pals who keep attacking, right? But I don't think we have the same situation with slavery. The slaves were like if they would have been freed and be left a farm. They would've not one hundred percent. And that's actually I obviously true. And not really because it's even true that once slavery was ended. Correct me if I'm wrong slaves weren't even asking for retribution or Justice to be an active. They were just asking to be like let let go let le- let alone. So there wasn't even like a call to bringing a hammer of Justice down upon their totally true. I'm more actually asking about the white southerners in the south when they were conquered by the union army did things just what happened did things kind of in. I'm talking during the war. Did they just go like, okay? Well, we're union now or were they still just fighting teeth a nail fighting all the way up to the nineteen sixties. And right. I guess there's that too. Yeah. Okay. Okay. So, but that's what the that's what the ku-klux-klan is is basically, the real Kia a terrorist organization to intimidate blacks. And the there is the confederate army continuing its the guerrilla army was the confederate army a total in the streets in a freak and the sheet. Yes. So in the movie Django unchained, they have like is this supposed to be in slavery times? And they're all wearing hoods over their faces. You know, historically, inaccurate whatever I'm not going to get upset about that. But the claim. That's all the way your turn. Fine with everything I've mentioned so far morally I'm on board with. Tarintino not historically accurate. That's my problem with that guy. So what were you I've started? But what we're going to say the clans not formed until after the civil war. And that's right porn store. He's actually a pretty chill, dude. If you're good friends with them like me. Pretty good friends. He shot with a machine gun twice. But he got the shot. He was looking. I got the shop. It's not in the movie, but he got shot. So tecumseh Sherman. Is one end and on the other end is you listened to grant? And they're closing in on Robert E Lee is that correct in the west Robert de lis not in the west. And I they take Vicksburg and the Mississippi River, and that's an important thing. And then you listen to us grant goes to the east to try to take on Robert E Lee because everybody else's losing against him. And he ultimately wins. But it's really long drawn out then William to Sherman slices through Georgia. So it takes a peek. Yes, exactly. Thank you. So it takes it takes a while Atlanta. It takes them all to get to Atlanta. But then once it gets to Atlanta, then he does his March to the sea to serve how. Yeah. On Peachtree street or no. The March to the sea. It's where the union army just basically just steamrolled all the way through. So there's not an army to even try to stop them. They're burning shit along the way, actually and. Oh, right. Is that the scene that you see in gone with the wind where they're like? Like in the middle where they're trying to get their shit together. Whatever. Yeah. Yeah. No Atlanta's burning and they as he's puts it he wants to make Georgia howl. And so it's a okay, look, we we're winning. We can do basically whatever we want. We can March an army straight through your country, destroying everything in our path. Your morale should be destroyed as well. As your interesting a little bit shortsighted..

"Let south east in the Virginia theatre randomly was a military genius. Would you say, yeah. Yeah. It's hard to get nerdy about this. I think he's a tactical genius. I think he's strategically limited. What do you mean by that? Okay. He knows how to win a battle. But it doesn't know how to craft what a war is supposed to ultimately comp. I always say, you know, you won the battle. But you lost the war. Quote, that I've known for saying that would your good you're good at metaphors. I'm good at quotes. I made up. They won the battle lost the war. I made out to the ocean as powerful you have to respect it. I made communism is a good idea in theory. All that all that. That's me. A lot of people don't know. That the you know, the speech the big one. Yeah. Well, if you look at it, it's actually about circumcision. Originally score score. And seven inches ago. That's why Lincoln had the hat and the beard. He was a rabbi he was talking about the circum circumstances yourself during that speech. People don't add at the fourth theater. He wasn't shot. He was circumcised to death, actually. All right. So I still have my son's foreskin. Wow. Actually, no. Okay. Wanna make it to the end. That they get back doored. Right. The confederacy kind of short by Sherman. Is that what happened? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So w tecumseh Sherman is a which was on. I'm sorry. I would side is he tie. He's good too. Yeah. He's a great job. But he takes over joining McClellan. Who was an incompetent? Okay. Yeah. Yeah. So we talked about McClellan a little bit because some McClellan is a loser link awesome. You thought shots were fired afford something. Nope. No. He's a fool. He's a tale door either. Here's the worst thing about it. So he's Lincoln's main general in the east, and he loses a lot especially to Robert E Lee, then he drops out of the war. He's fired finally and he drops out. And then he runs for president against Lincoln in eighteen hundred four this is I had a professor in grad school say this. I think it's absolutely right. The most important presidential election of all time is the election of eighteen sixty four Lincoln. I mean, this is totally heroin. I love it. He put himself up for re election in the middle of a war, basically saying, I will let the country decide whether or not we should continue this. He he was so in favor of democracy. He wanted to let the people decide whether or not he should say because he said no election where the yeah, exactly it could acclaimed emergency powers. I'm going to be a real dictator here and some other Republican. Big change. Right. Really? All good. I know yet who won that election. Yeah. It's John Wilkes booth. A lot of people a lot of people forget that. Now. That's why there's Lincoln's famous second inaugural. But who he runs against George McClellan, his former general who failed as a general who then tried to run as a as a peace democrat. And if he had one ally he He was. was. Let me we can't win. Just give up. No. No, he's tariff. That's interesting. Do you think Lincoln was ever like used some of your rhetoric? Like, you're a fucking loser. That's how probably yeah. Probably behind closed doors. Oh, okay. So okay. We. Yeah. So then what happens so tecumseh Sherman gets replaces George McClellan. So all the stuff that bad. So for the unions going on in the east and why it's bad, especially because news gets back to Washington, very fast and their photography. So so people can take photographs of the battlefield. And so the news spreads all bad news. But good stuff is going on out in the west primarily because of Ulysses grant and William to come to when we say the west we're talking about the west basically like the southern midwest, I really should say like Tennessee down through the Mississippi River, the whole the whole point was to take the Mississippi River, and it took about two years to do that. And so they start they start marching in eastward as their winning battles..

That should be easy. What are the three states that have more than one million veterans? I would have to say be a California, Texas, and you the New Yorker, Illinois, Florida. Dijana retirees right? Speaking of which this day in history. It's the three hundred fifteenth day of the year, and we have just fifty days remaining till the end of the end of the year in eighteen sixty four general one of your colleagues from one hundred plus years began burning Atlanta, I believe it was Rome, Georgia.

This is a I never knew about this weather anomaly, but in nineteen eleven many cities in the midwestern United States break their record highs and record lows on the same day nineteen eleven you might want to do some Google on that strong cold front rolls through.

Let me think about a record high in record low on the same day nineteen eighteen we already said World War One Germany signs off on an armistice agreement. Now, we know when World War Two where the big signature and the Pacific was signed where wh- where did this signature occur on the? The decks of the battleship, Missouri.

His smoked marijuana at in college and college, and how many years later, do we have a presidential candidate admitting it and becoming president. Well, there would have been Clinton. I think Clinton never inhaled. But then there is. So he was that guy. I thought that was okay. But it was with Obama. No, go inhaled both anyway and liked back to George s Patton general Patton. Was born on this day in eighteen eighty five. Okay. So eighteen eighty-five George s Patton eleven eleven eighty-five is born in of World War One eleven eleven eighteen what happened and did you know that in nineteen twelve the summer of nineteen twelve these summer Olympics for in Stockholm Sweden.

So he's buried actually I think over in Luxembourg downs. Right. Nineteen o four Alger hiss is born Alger hiss, of course, famous American lawyer and convicted spy. Third of the State Department. Yeah, he did. He was very high went very high Johns Hopkins University voted most popular student by his classmates.

And for many years, they said, oh, this this stuff about his all just made up stuff. He died in nineteen Ninety-six. He'd made it always nineteen Ninety-six maintain his innocence other way as does his family to this day within the vanilla transcript. And then these transcripts come out. You never know cases are never closed, and we have clients that will say, let's say they're accused of something. And then the police don't have enough to to move forward. So there's no there's no filing of a complaint. There's no indictment. What have you? And they don't have to tell them. You're not cleared. It's there's just not enough evidence yet to come out.

"Of a you've been trumped segment and every Monday night, we will be taking your calls and texts about who you think will be out of the Trump administration. Next, paul. We have a we are gonna take texts. Now, here's a caveat on that. So I let me see what. Because Dan was on the on the line. I we do have to take priority. They call callers get priority. And if this one is different than the one, I have my tech screen. I will put the tech screeners named down. But you do it to call next week in order to win. So make sure you're able to call in next Monday night. Hey, Dan, what's your guests for you've been would be James warrior monk Mattis? I think he's had enough. And if there's enough hoopla you can quietly resign the man's been serving since nineteen sixty nine. If you have been following the news on the caravan that DOD's like, yeah. Not a threat. And that should not have come out. That should have been buried someplace and it wasn't. And there have been several instances of that where the president has said, we're gonna do this and the and the department of defense is warning around with their hair on fire trying to figure out what they're gonna do. He got pants down Korea is getting pants. He's been pants like three or four times. He's a general. He's not used to being pants. Wow. Pam style. I'm liking this this. I think you've got a good. I think Jeff Sessions should be a free space. That's just two weeks. That should be that should be the free space. I'm sorry. So you're just saying you're just saying you're all going to be wrong. But I I think he'll go eventually. But I don't think it'll be this week. Yeah. Well, I think is here's the thing. It's a lot of these resignations are going gonna happen during the recess at the holidays. Let's just know slow news day Friday Mattis wants to go spend more time with with the grandkids. Well, this interesting. This is just for this week, Dan. So you're you're. No, I understand that. But I think what she said is I don't know that they're gonna but as far as I'm concerned, you're next guys James warrior monk Mattis. Interesting why written down, Dan? So make sure you're listening next Monday night, particular if particularly happen if it happens. Oh, yeah. Yeah. You don't believe anything? I just wanna throw a wild card out there because he, you know, McMasters went and that was ugly Kelly, and what's his name the walrus. What the heck is this ball, John? They they had a screaming match with enough. Expletives to make Tarantino movie apparently. And so these generals are, you know, they're like, hey, I don't know if you know this. But when I send people in the battle they die, and I am just not interested in doing that. And Bolton just sorry going a little political. He's never seen the elephant. So you don't care. Here. Go ahead. He's the war guy. And but he's he's I don't think he's served or if he served he's never seen combat. And so consequently, my response to that is easy to say, let's do this. If you ain't seen it, you know, tecumseh Sherman said walk. You said war is hell, but the part that you don't share is to hear the freaks of the men dying says smell the dash to you know, and. War's hell is the last statement carnage to the the hill, you we'll see these generals? I think have had enough of the saber rattling. So we'll see I don't think I'm going to be correct. But I had it for one out there that no one would think that you're going to be a correct here. Dan, I I want to do this. I I I don't we can't do it on the air because there's a listener texting in. So it's not quite fair 'cause they won't be able to do it in real time. There's a little bit of a delay between what you and I say or what what we all say, and how this texture will respond, but the listeners what they write seven zero eight says laugh my ass off. Actually, it's L A O awoke officer. Oh, yes. Ain't nobody gonna be eliminated from the Trump administration media run in wild on you when the red states, turn red what you gonna do when the red wave walks over you. Oh, well, sad boys. Right. I guess. That's cute. But I will have to you know, what in twenty four hours. Actually, I think you're going to have a ton of contested races. Yeah. I'd say the dust will settle probably next Monday. We'll know this isn't gonna see your houses state houses, you're going to see people are fed up. And when it's, you know, the walkaway movement was proven to be bots and foolishness the the the the high profile Republicans. I am agreeing with Billy crystal on a regular basis. I never agreed with Billy crystal. Crystal from like monsters Inc. I wasn't sure when Harry met Sally. Yeah. William chris. Gotcha. My dad. He's he's around reserve Republican. This has been a. Brew never been right. But these now. Yeah. Well, yeah. That's that's bedfellows. All over the place. A lot of non apologize as much as that guy wrote the fine fine rap. I'm an unapologetic FDR democrat those ideas worked then they'll work today the work tomorrow and just for that guy. Mitch McConnell says he's coming after your social security Medicare, and you can count on it. If he gets the house, they get the house you can count on it. They're not lying when they tell you who they are. What do you? What do you think about the fact that so many of Trump supporters are constantly angry? And it is though having all three branches of the government isn't enough they want they want your silence as well. Dan. What do you say to that? I say you don't you know, the first amendment comes before the second amendment. And there's a reason for it. My right. My right to freely speak is the nappy a bridge by the government. Now, you can tell me I'm wrong. That's not a bridge in my my right? But I'm telling you right now in the marketplace of ideas, conservative ideas, do not work, libertarian ideas. You'll like libertarianism go to Somalia bring your guns and ammunition or a lot of money. Good luck. Well, libertarianism stand. It was great to hear from you. And as everyone knows the phone lines are always open. It's not like Michael's like saying, no to other callers. Dan. I yeah. No. I'm saying this is this. This is what I wanna keep doing is having dialogue. And and notice we we were talking about Trump supporters. You know, Dan is bringing in this sort of broader picture talking about libertarianism conservativism. I, you know, I it's there there's another category, which is Trump supporters. I don't know what you call that category. But it's another one I've gotta let Dan go. Dan, have a great night. We wish you the best of luck next week. Tonight. Thanks, guys. Oh, Dan, have a great evening and happy election day therapy election day. Thanks, so go vote people keep saying don't forget to vote. I don't think anyone's gonna forget to vote this year. Like if you're not voting it's because you've made a decision not to right? And it should be like just please wait in a line because line was so long today. Oh my God. I believe it was like a hundred people online. We're not voted on Saturday. What's going on pay? So he so. Well, first of all I wanted to remind every tell everybody about the random acts of patriotism. Yes. Yes. Which is these projections have go vote, and you're talking about people won't forget, by the way, the four one four says the reason Trump supporters are so angry is because people like you and the rest of the mainstream media never give them a break on anything. It's constant nonstop. So I in the thing is so when you when you hear this station. So if you're listening to a guess when you you you hear it's. For an hour. We talked about Maria Callas and for the hour before that we talked about who's gonna leave. Whether it's not a it's turned into a. Here's a fun game. It's interesting that what we say. And what people here are so distinctly different. But that's fine. That's the mechanism the mechanism of the brain your perspective. The thing that people in Indian by conservatism. There are so many conservatives that have come out today to say, they're voting straight Democrats. Richard painter, very conservative person. He's like vote democrat because they want the balance of power back the checks and balances to work, right? Right. Right. And so so when people are saying that you're right, Patty. It's Trump Trump's words are different. Gory category and their and their conservatism, it's like nationalism. And there are people who who I've talked to who've said I am voting for Trump who have previously voted for Democrats because they're like I love the policies. I love what he's getting done. I like that. He says what he thinks. So I don't think that this is ice. I mean, people separate mentality different thing. And you were saying about the random acts of patriotism, this is awesome. That you if you've been we started by saying make sure you get out the vote Broadway and Chicago's mardi coercion. Amanda Meyer sent this to us. And this is wonderful. If you've been seeing these projections all over the city there's one right at Dearborn in Monroe. It says get are the vote by the Hamilton theater. And then there was even one on the L. That was extremely cool. It says vote all along this side of the L. These projections are called random acts of patriotism encouraging people to vote so please get out and vote tomorrow. I, and I think that you know, I know people aren't going to forget to vote, but there's also, you know, the energy of it being a part of it reminding you that you know, citizenry is precious. You know, it's something to be a part of. And maybe you're not excited about it. Maybe you're like Lulu who's apathetic and cynical about it? And you know, it's another angle of like, look, you know, it might not always got your way we had a texter earlier say that her ninety one year old father when they voted in the last election felt like their vote didn't count and they said they were never gonna vote again. You know, it's there's something in there to figure that out real quick. We have some numbers just in literally just in from the past f our Chicago very strong finished early voting today. Twenty eight thousand ballots cast for a total of two hundred and twenty three thousand five hundred forty eight. Any guesses overall early voting was up from the two thousand fourteen midterm election. Any guesses twenty percent ninety six percent from twenty fourteen will also na- nationwide. Thirty one million people have already voted which is the highest of all time for a mid-term election. Mainstream media, I don't know if that's accurate and voting by mail has been record breaking. This time around. I was trying to help my mother. Vote absentee ballot in Florida. And they make it so hard. We did it in October. And I was on the phone today with the people just trying to get it done. Florida's still didn't learn about anything after the chats. Remember, the Chad? Hey, trucker, rich.
