Fresh update on "thomas jefferson" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"They also bring you my segments The message of the day and something you might not know. That's the O'Reilly Update We days eat 60 A m The answer. Father of the Maga Doctrine and president of turning Point USA. Here's Charlie Kirk. Everybody. Welcome to this episode of the Charlie Kirk show super thrilled to be joined by a friend of mine, Lance while now who is the author of many different books? I hope I pronounced the last name correctly, Lance. Welcome to the Charlie Kirk Show Good. Build the wall Now? Yes. Well, I'll tell you my biggest fear is always mispronouncing Guests names so that Z we've had We've had some real kicker's on S O. We're so many places we can start. I just want to say that you are a brilliant mind. You really understand what's going on in our country. You're Christian, your American Patriot just kind of lead with what? We're talking off air. You were saying that there's a new religion that is seeping into this country. A civic left this religion. Let's start there and We could have you No shame. Yeah, sure, because, you know, I think that the evangelical and perhaps even the pro life community is realizing that as they were becoming awakened in Trump's populist movement of what he represents that there's actually another religion that they're running into. And it Zapresic fundamentalism, and it's become and we didn't realize it. But the entire black lives matter Corporation thing, the kneeling in the sports events. This is all religious symbiote ology that is that is closing in on the traditional Christian world, and we used to just like one of separation of church and state. That's what we would always here when we would start preaching. We've been told separation of church and state. Well, the state has now separated itself from boundaries and is assimilating the church. And the idea of separation of church and state. Not even in our founding documents, written in a singular letter by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Convention, and also was a incorrect ruling by who Go Black, a former KKK member. Can you talk about how if we're even to take that at face value, But we can't keep the state out of the church. Yeah, well, good point. And you know, it was really telling for me was, if you remember the conversation with Donald Trump. It really was the Breakout moment when Donald Trump met with the evangelical community up at American Hotel in New York, it was. It was fascinating to me that one of the first things that Donald Trump opened up with Was repealing the Johnson amendment so that you're free to be able to speak freely in your pulpits about whatever you want. And what was amazing is he paused, thinking there would be this thunderous applause and there was none. It was like in the old show, laughing where you know that the joke was one person would applaud in the audience. And I said their stunt because he's taking in the fact that Oh, evidently, that's the pastors don't want to have that responsibility to have an opinion they were hiding behind that. That's right Theoretic separation issue. So he moved on to what he moves on to. Well, What about that? They're gonna take away your guns. So now they're all applauding, he said. It makes a note. Okay, There's guns is important. But speaking from the pulpit is not. We should have known right Then we got a weakness in our own ranks. We don't want to have opinions. That is such a good point. And I do have to say I have had the blessing of getting to know some phenomenal pastors through this entire process, but they're very they're very few of them. Rob McCoy, Jack Hibbs, James Cadiz, Ken Graves. You know, we're networking with them as best as we can. But there's far too many Christians that are like, well it Zach Johnson amendment don't understand which First of all, it's a misunderstanding of the Johnson amendment. You could still talk about civic affairs. I mean, Jack Hibbs goes as far to show his congregation how to vote. They fill up the ballot. See any males in the sermons to the IRA saying, Take away my tax exempt status. Pretty aggressive. Rob McCoy does the same thing. And nothing's happened them yet not safe. Anything that won't happen, But basically they're telling the world we don't care. It's not a priority to us to have some sort of charitable designation. It is crazy. So a friend of mine, Che on Who is this? He's phenomenal. Nothing is a great a great church and he's telling me he says that on their church that the members are under the threat of being fined. If they go to the church. Imagine this. So this what? What's happening? There is like the canary in the coal mine. And what's amazing to me is that more pastors in California wouldn't move in solidarity as one and begin to have services. So you literally have the problem where the churches are are willing to cooperate with the state. And submit to the state instead of stand up, But it's just like the Reformation all over again in search of a Martin Luther That's right, and they submit under a sloppy and I think incorrect theological reading of Romans, 13. Where in Romans 13. It says, Submit all people and rulers of authority. What is not mentioned? No, is that it? A constitutional republic were in charge. We are the co rulers. We the citizens are and so a proper reading is that when our natural rights are violated, then the ruler should be submitting to us is the point is they should be submitted to our will. Re precisely And so now we're having this shocking new wave of awake a rude awakening. Maybe before a great awakening and what's happening is we're discovering the legislators. Who who we say. Oh, we've got Republican legislators. Oh, I see how this works. The election has to be certified the election and then we're finding the waffling weakness That's in Republican legislators because they have no knowledge that the evangelical pro life people that are making up 35 to 40% of their constituency. Actually want them to stand up and represent them. Because we haven't let our voice be heard. They're just discovering. Oh, we exist locally as well. That's exactly right. And the The thing that bothers me. There's so many directions. I want to take this. But let's just stay focused on kind of a Christian kind of aspect of this are these pastors in particular people like Andy Stanley and John Piper on the guy from New York, Tim Keller, who have been so they all have their different flavors of handling this, John Piper went as far to say that he couldn't find a moral choice in this election. And I could make an argument. John Piper influenced some of these swing states. We're talking about margins. If there's no, we know there's fraud with all this. But even with that, let's pretend John Piper and Andy Stanley, who is where I am right now, I'm in Georgia Atlanta, Georgia. Andy Stanley, the son of Charles Stanley, who says we should get rid the Old Testament, He brought a transgender person on stage. Honest her at his church..

I realized the significance of going to Virginia and I'll tell you why I'm so with ours my mom and dad's house. It was in a cc and I could get a good education web Virginia only if you ever look at only had ever to our members on the team. Wow, and the reason why is that nobody else wanted the room with them on the road? I didn't know that joke over the place right coach Island, so they had to have Mike Goins Mike Owens Bobby Stokes and gone and Jefferson and garden never played that much with Mike and Bobby room and garlic which stayed home. Sometimes he was home. But you know, he had a couple of guys a room with but we we changed the culture at UVA and we bought in six Americans my freshman year to change the whole dynamic of UVA football scores from a basketball perspective and I didn't realize that you know years later that I got out of school. They're not that coach Island include with racist, but you know, no one ever wanted to go there because of the stigma of Virginia basketball. He tried to try to change up in nineteen Seventy-Six eighty-one ACC title and you know two hour from everyone that team by restricting my coins Wally Walker and The Crew whatever but even today even today not Jacob what I look back at one reason. I actually now live in shortsville is come back is because of the stuff that's racially divided in Strongsville with the school and also also the sports piece off there with the something on walking on their lovely Thomas Jefferson lawn a couple of weeks ago and it's in the news that these young ladies or standing up for black lives matter and wage. They put a piece of paper on their dorm room door. Now. This is where Jefferson lived and Alan pulled all these big people live back in the day, but they didn't they didn't face the university. They just put the piece of paper said after you back yet and it's their racism and all that kind of stuff. So all the university is up and up right because of that they like, oh we need to get this going to take it down all the big money people like President. You need to go get that down whatever wage they said that and guess what like four or five people did on the same door as well. So going back and understanding where we were will be been what I've been through there now and understand that it's it's kind of crazy. It's too long to see it evolve..

"John Adams gave way to Thomas Jefferson, but not with the deep bitterness that marked 18 60 tell us about the election of 18 60 doctor and how that transition differed from every transition prior to it. Well, the late election 1960 was he got off of mass and You know the You brought up some others and, uh, just mentioned them. When Andy Jackson ran twice against John Quincy Adams and won the popular vote the first time and the electoral bird but the first time You didn't win a majority, and he lost in the House representatives those who were bitter election Did I say after it was over? Not fundamental. Theeighties City election WASP fundamental because it immediately after the election, there was succession. The way the election went, is that basically, Lincoln's votes were not counted in the Eventually seceding states. And so he didn't. He didn't get a majority of the popular vote. And he got it. He could get a majority of the electoral vote. Because he won the West. He won the North and the East and the West. And the South, much most of which eventually succeeded. Uh, went for Uh, And here's a news thing thing so Between so I have to go to history of slavery very quickly In 17 97. The Northwest ordinance was passed and enter it allowed for the union to expand a system of free states and equal citizens. There's provisioning. Is it forbidden slavery? For being in the Northwest territory where Michigan and why are contained the names of two most noteworthy states in that region. But there's only one. Yes, they're both there. Yeah, they're both here and, uh, And so and that comes from Virginia, and they gave the land and Thomas Jefferson was the leader of that. In other words, in 17 97. There was Agreement to ban slavery from expansion in America in land that had been slave. Friendly because it was Virginia land. That's what the point you're making The Northwest territory, the capital of which is Warren, Ohio, was succeeded was given by Virginia to the new United States as a free soil country. Free soil territory and see all the now it's you know, the American history is wonderful and also messy, but Virginia claimed All of the land to the west of there, too. Is this all of the original 13? They claimed all of the land to their west. They just didn't know how big that was. Somebody see. Uh, they didn't really know what they were playing and you know the by the way the land was sold into private hands rapidly. Payoff. The Revolutionary War dead, So it was a magnificent act by Virginia and Virginia had never really run that area. Hey, you, George Washington surveyed parts of it, but It was. You know, it was the front here, right? And we were a bit rustic back then. So it comes over and the point to absorb from this is There was a national consensus reached in the Northwest Ordinance, one of the organic laws of the union that slavery would not grow. And then you have to zoom ahead exactly 33 years, one human generation to 18 20. The year of the Missouri compromise. Because in that compromise It was evidence that now there's a huge concern to keep the ratio between the slave in the free states the same because there was not an agreement anymore about whether slavery should grow. That gives that that has to do with the rising of the positive Good school of slavery, which is infected by German historicism in which is oddly enough, predecessor of modern progressivism. And John Calhoun was its principal champion. I always say the man who did the most damage in America with John Calhoun Prekaz Lincoln argued Slavery had been set upon a course of extinction. By the framers. And I think John Calhoun saved it from extinction so that Lincoln had to kill it. Well, these ideas. They were still struggling with these ideas right? Because they're very different from the idea of the American revolution and that start change. I like it that it's 33 years between those two things. In one generation. New idea had grown up. Then that means that the history of the country from 18 22 18 60 is much troubled with the question of slavery. And there had been. The huge efforts led first of all by Henry Clay, who put Senator from Kentucky who put together the first put together the Missouri compromise. And it basically, uh States and this certain territory would be admitted in a ratio that would preserve the status quo. And then you know it. The history of America, by the way, is much driven by land. Because This is the first place in the world. Where ordinary people could get some land. And they wanted to do that, right. That's what the Hood the Great Homestead Act, signed by Lincoln in 18 62 does. And when we come back at the top of the hour, we'll talk about this transition between 18 20 in.

"Suddenly a huge number balance or found for Joe Biden. And statistically probable. Stickley Isle of Political Scientists out of political science. PhD from Harvard in 1972. It was my specialty and academics. And on the voting history will say that there is obvious evidence here and under cases like Abbott V. Perez. Which was a voting rights case. Justice Roberts himself Used voting data. To examine whether not Latinos were being discriminated against on a German Gering. Procedure in Texas. And Justice. Roberts has allowed data which shows like political science data here, which would show obvious clue patterns of fraud. This would be responsive, I think and say that the fraud issue can't just be swept under the table now when the inauguration day comes in January 20th of the next year. If Joe Biden is sworn in as president, and this is still lingering, what the heck's gonna happen? Well, George Iet's the country is clearly divided in a way it has not been since the Civil war. And the division is very, very strong and very bitter. People on both sides are not finding middle ground with each other. I think the country has never been Since the 18 sixties closer to a civil war. On. We've had contentious elections before some of the very early elections. Which most people have not studied. You know, we haven't studied American history don't realize that the fights between Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson Were in many ways as bitter is going on today, and they were over issues of whether the states Should be supreme and the federal structure that was Thomas Jefferson's position limited government. Or Hamilton wanted much more about of a federal government presents, and they fought bitterly about this. Presidential elections were Down to the wire and settled by sometimes one or two votes in the congress. That could happen again. And you Q contend that the deep state is behind this. And that it's not necessarily, you know, pro Joe Biden. The fact is, he's there. This was gonna happen anyway. You believe, don't you, George? I documented through many books, but my current Trump wins, which I think is Essential reading. If you really want understand, from a constitutional point of view, what's going on? This is how I'm predicting how the end game will be played. This has been going on for a long time. The Democrats have largely been taken over by, um ah socialist Marxist wing. You could see this with Bernie Sanders and AOC. I think Kamala Harris has a very, very strong socialist background, which he's avowed certainly in the primaries. I wrote a book about the Democratic Party's socialist lies. I took every one of the statements major candidates were making. In the primary debates and showed how they really were statements right out of Marxism, and we're proposing essentially these kinds of far left agenda. So the far left has been architect in college to gain power. Too. You know what Obama called the fundamental transformation of America..

Kong's worth goes up picks up some food. Some women stop him, recognize him and asking questions about the game. What is very wrong with that? No. Oh Twitter mob. Read you just to All right. First one is from Delaware, Ohio. Yes, Cris Collinsworth. Women do know things outside of the kitchen. Now, if we could get you out of the 19 sixties and realized women Hell of a lot.

This is 2020 of college educations that eye level jobs. Women watch football go to games actually have knowledge about what's going on. Down on the field. I apologize. Okay? I'm only going to say this. I don't know any of these people that the tweets that I just showed you Maybe it's because People who think like that never would associate with me, but I don't know any of them. What if I came across one? Would never speak to the person again. In any way. What they just tweeted eliminate them. From my life cycle. Because they are zealots. That's fanatical. Don't want to be around fanatics. And I'm giving you some advice. Don't be around fanatics. They are irrational and will turn on you. Okay? To stay in history, December 3rd 1800, all right on 220 years ago. John Adams versus Thomas Jefferson, who's going to be president? All right. They slugged it out. They hated each other. They became friends later. Jefferson wound up with 73 electoral votes. Adam 65. So what's the problem? The problem was that Jefferson ran with a guy named Aaron Burr, who killed Alexander Hamilton. And to do there's a villain. This guy is a villain. And when the states gathered, Burr said, Hey, those 73 electoral votes were for me because it wasn't distinguished on the ballot. He just said. Thomas Jefferson, Aaron Burr, John Adams, and so it went to the House of Representatives because of all this chaos and it was nasty, all right. So the house voted for Jefferson. That's why, when I get mail from people who say Can the electoral people throw it into the House of Representatives where the states would actually vote for president? Because of the fraudulent allegations now. It could happen. It won't. But that's what happened for Thomas Jefferson, defeating John Adams, John Adams's president. Jefferson beat him. In December. 3rd 1800 because off Aaron Burr all that chaos. I have a letter written by Thomas Jefferson in my collection. That ex quarry eight sober. Hate Quick break back with a really good mail segment. And then a Christmas final thought. I have to do laundry.

Donald Trump's disregard for our transition rituals threatens democracy

"Have you noticed. This is not normal. The president openly trying to say only the votes for him should count talking about sailing election. No legal path to succeed. We've been reporting on how those michigan republicans were welcomed at the white house after being shamed in their own home state for what they were doing. And donald trump is also taking petty moves that basically delay or mess with aspects of the transition. They won't mess with the transfer of power. All of this. We want to show tonight with. The evidence is a radical break from a longstanding. Bipartisan approach to the peaceful transfer of power in america that look forward to talking to the president so honored that he was attended with hospitality to me. And my wife. Yesterday didn't need to do this. And i am most grateful that He would do so good morning last night. I had a warm conversation with president. Elect barack obama. I congratulated him and senator biden on their impressive. Victory told the president-elect he can count on complete cooperation for my administration as he makes the transition to the white house. My number one priority. In the coming two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures dental is successful. We turned presidential historian. Michael beschloss what contrast you see from there to now well once again are a donald trump tonight as a category of his own. Go all the way back to john adams who lost to the guy who was at that time as you know his political enemy. Thomas jefferson. Adams was angry about being defeated by jefferson. And he didn't hang around for the inauguration that tradition adopted established yet so adams got an a stage coach and went back to massachusetts before jefferson was born in but it began this tradition. That even when you have an incumbent president who is angry at the guy who beat him for reelection. Herbert hoover in one thousand nine hundred ninety three and franklin roosevelt over to the white house to talk about how they should transfer power even when they rolled up to the capital roosevelt and hoover sat in the back of an open car. They shared a lap robe. If you could believe it didn't talk much. But that's a tradition. And as you say the tradition is running alongside both the rules constitutional requirements and the norms that much abuse a framework or term in the last four years That provide a buffer a provide a context all this. We just showed the outgoing president's michael stays with us. We want to show michael. And our viewers the other cases where we have seen the candidates as mentioned who lost just conceding with some eye on their place in history john mccain making what for him was a painful concession to barack obama in two thousand and eight hillary clinton in that loss that shocked so many including many in the republican party. She got up the next morning and gave that speech pledging cooperation to president-elect trump and sixteen we've seen presidents who lost reelection like trump did face the music the people of the united states that made the choice and of course. I accept that decision. But i have to admit not with the same enthusiasm that i accepted the decision for years ago. People have spoken. And we respect the majesty of the democratic system. I just called governor clinton over in little rock and offered my congratulations. he did run a strong campaign. I wish him well in the white house. You know michael you deal with facts and evidence you have a rigorous process between where you start and publishing one of your history books. How do you measure class. Because what i see there is something. That's hard to prove. But i feel it inside which is across ideology in parties. We've just seen many different presidents showing a type of class or even grace that is absent right now at the white house. We're going to ari. I've got two sons who are now in their twenties but they used to play a little league and every time they played a game even if they lost they would shake hands with the winning team and say good game. That was assumed this. That's that's american. What is not. American is to claim when you didn't win to be a poor loser you try to be out of keeping with the tradition of all those guys you just showed even richard nixon who is not thought of in history as a particularly gracious winner. Nineteen sixty gets beaten by john kennedy. He was very angry about it and it was very sad about it but he goes out and tells us supporters in los angeles in america. Once a decision is made we unite behind the candidate who was elected that was even before the final results were. Yeah that's great a great example. You're given off as we say off the top of the dome michael We have one more for you. And that is al gore. Who did have this tight legal challenge. Everyone remembers frustrating. For both sides in the run up to it and then of course frustrating for the person losing so narrowly having won more votes overall total across america. Al gore take a look now the. Us supreme court has spoken. Let there be no doubt while. I strongly disagree with the court's decision. I accept it. I accept the finality of this outcome. Which will be ratified next monday. In the electoral college and tonight for the sake of our unity as a people and strength of our democracy. I offer my concession. If i may be a little optimistic here at the end of the week michael ask you to guide us. What would you as someone who cares deeply about america. What would you tell citizens both parties neither party whatever. What is incumbent upon the rest of us to do if we never get that concession from this president. What do we do from here together. We just say the. Donald trump is a gross aberration. Get him out out the door. The door doesn't hit him on the way out on the twentieth of january and say we demand our leaders that they do. What all those other candidates that you show tonight did show some graciousness and understand that democracy is more important. Listen to what al gore said. He didn't say. I agree with the supreme court decision in bush v gore. He says for the sake of our democracy. I offer my concession. Most canada's most presidents love democracy want to unite the country. Donald trump is a gross aberration and exception to that tradition. Soon he'll be gone. Michael beschloss gets the word on that. Thank you sir.

Pike's Peak: The Complete History of the World's Highest Hill Climb

"Pike's peak is a giant among giants. It's the highest mountain in the front range of the rocky mountains. It is formed from billion-euro old granite. That's right. Billion with a B. and was first named by the native people who lived in shadow the called the mountain. Taba meaning son and they were the Tableau Watch meaning people of San Mountain. In eighteen o six, the mountain was quote unquote discovered. By American explorer lieutenant, Zevulon Yuan Pipe. These God I sounds like an alien spaceship guy. On. Doesn't look as cool as his name suggests I'm just GonNa tell you right now he was sent by Thomas Jefferson on a mission to explore the West and upon seeing the Mountain Zevulun apparently swore the mountain would never be conquered by man cars didn't exist yet, but it's safe to assume pike would have included them in his assessment as well. Given the chance it only took fourteen years. To prove old Zebulon Pike. Wrong. The mountain was first scaled by a European in eighteen twenty when Edwin James, a botanist and explorer successfully reached the summit collecting flowers all the way up quote the most notable day of the expedition for botanical collecting. Now, I don't WanNa give all the credit to Edwin. James although it sounds like he had a great time, I'm sure that one of the Taboada probably. Did it before him yeah. One hundred percent. Yeah attaboy watch like a a wildfire up their boot who was just like I'm GonNa Climb that today flowers. We're lovely but it was a Shinier commodity that attracted the first wave of settlers to pikes. Peak Pike's peak or bust was a common slogan of the Colorado Gold Rush of the eighteen fifties although is more of a marketing slogan. Do the prominence of the mountain gold wasn't discovered near pikes peak until later in eighteen ninety three, it won't be the first time that the mountain inspired the imaginations of those who climbed it in that same year after reaching a summit of the mountain and taking in the view Katharine Lee Bates wrote the Song America the beautiful. Describing Purple Mountain Majesties above the enameled plane over the years the mountain was commonly referred to as Pike's highest peak before finally being simplified just to pikes peak the next notable American to shape the fate of the mountain was Spencer Penrose, and he also might have been the one to introduce cars. Penrose had a name that sound like the bad guy in a murder mystery but he also had a job that would fit right into the genre. He was a mining speculator of the American West just like a murder mystery penrose had a history that could make you think you is both a suspect and a savior he graduated from Harvard but at the bottom of his class. His father and brothers were doctors and lawyers he decided to travel out west and try to make a name for himself at first he failed before getting a tip about some land near Cripple Creek that made him millions of dollars, and that's million dollars like in the movie this guy is played by Walton Geoghegan's. For sure. That's love that whilst. Yeah. And that's millions of dollars in eighteen hundreds money, which is like a lot today billions today. I Love Walton Gardens he's so. I feel like if I went to Harvard I'd WanNa, graduate the bottom of my class. Look I'm I'm the best on the rowing team but. Not great at socio economics I mean I went to. Harvard. So I'm pretty good at stuff but like I partied penrose settled. Colorado. Springs. The closest town to pikes peak was met a woman named Julie Villiers McMillan although. Penrose was by then in his forty s, he had sworn to stay a rich entrepreneurial bachelor but Macmillan proved to be grimes to his Elon Musk and the two got hitched in traveled to Europe for a lavish honeymoon staying at beautiful resorts around Europe inspired penrose to murder his wife what now? In fact, the inspiration was to open his own motel modeled after the places he had stayed specifically on the Mediterranean coast. This became the Broadmoor hotel opened in nineteen eighteen at the cost of three million, nineteen eighteen dollars translating to scrooge mcduck. Gold Coin Swing Pool amount of money in today's money.

All The Information You Need About Census 2020

"Today's episode. I, WanNa talk about something that's really important and something that maybe perhaps you didn't know about I have a lot of information about the twenty twenty cents is that is on a deadline of September thirtieth. So get those census forms in call the Census Bureau, or get the census online and fill out by September thirtieth. But now, right now, you can sit back and relax and enjoy this episode on the twenty twenty census. Okay. So let me start out by saying that the census is required by the constitution which calls for an actual enumeration once a decade and no Mauritian is the actual count one by one of the individuals in the United States will the first census after the American revolution was taken in Seventeen Ninety Under Secretary of State, Thomas Jefferson. But on the NPR website, it states that the federal government is trying to get every household to answer some personal questions and they are kind of personal for the twenty twenty census. It's part of a once a decade tradition of counting every person living in the united. States. The twenty thousand population number will shape how political power and federal tax dollars are shared in the US over the next ten years. Ten Years Think about that the data collected by the senses determines the number of seats. Each state has the US House of Representatives and it is used to distribute billions and federal funds to local communities. The more populated your state is the more representatives you'll have in the US House of Representatives so That is really important that you understand that and fill out the twenty twenty census because it does help your state locally and overall in April the twenty twenty cents is started mailing out forms to all US citizens in the hopes of finding out how best to spend federal and state money. Well, the twenty twenty cents is, is the first in the United States since the rise of social media and the first US count that's primarily online. Yes for the first time Americans can answer census questions over the phone and on the Internet as well as mailing in the form. But this is showing concern around the digital security and participation among communities that may not have easy access to the internet or computers such as the homeless population and those living in shelters, and for months, the government has been preparing to combat this information campaigns that may try to disrupt the count which rolled out not only in the middle of a presidential race. That's right. Here. But also during the coronavirus pandemic on March twentieth the announced it is extending the end of counting the census from July thirty first to August fourteenth, and now from August fourteenth until September thirtieth. So you have until September thirtieth to get those census questions answered will officials however say that the sooner households fill out a form on their own the fewer door Knockers or as they are called census takers, the Census Bureau will have to try to send out the demographic data are used by businesses to determine, for example, where to build new supermarkets and other needed structures and business establishments such as daycare, and even the need for school lunch programs and other daily essentials. Also, the results will show where communities need new schools new. New Roads and more services for families, older adults and children. The data will also inform the government. How hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated to more than one hundred programs, including Medicaid head start for community mental health services, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program also known as snap. Also may contribute to what kind of retail stores will do well in these areas that you live in how much tax money per town or county can be distributed to the Department of Transportation How many cars are in a particular area, which may determine the price of gas for that area.

Bad things happen to the children who left their rooms at night. Shoshana didn't move. She prayed watching be entity pillow until her eyelids grew heavy waiting for emily to return. But by the time, her eyes closed the sheet still lay vacant in the dark. As always the children were roused before for chores. Shoshana was somehow relieved define emily's large is inches from her own she woke. Emily was holding a small cloth doll your hands Je Shana asked if it was from home, shook her head slowly.

Silverman, and Chris Rock and Conan O'Brien, but because our nation celebrates is independence from England, every fourth of July I asked the author of the Declaration of Independence Thomas Jefferson. To join me virtually of course. And thought you might enjoy this special Al Franken podcast. President Jefferson Thank you for joining me my pleasure. You know lots of writers have used this device over the years. Really I I thought I was the first. You'll joking. That's funny. Okay. Where are you? Joining us from Sir for my crypt in Monticello okay well first of all congratulations. Your words have held up very well over two hundred and forty four years. For the most part. I've been kicking myself. To The yes. On the all men are created equal thing. How how so well all men should mean all men, and they pretty much gave the impression that I mentioned white men. Property So that wasn't your intention, but actually it was just said regretting kids number of years later. and. When was that July off eighteen, twenty four? The day you died, yes. You're saying that on the day you died. You realize that all men, not just white male property owners should be regarded as equal absolutely, and I have to tell you. It was one bazaar day first of all I was in the throes of delirium. And having these strange piff at one of them will set. All men are created equal could mean all men are created equal. Wow yes, wow indeed. And at that moment you, you drop dead out in no I wish. You wish yes, you see may choose will might test bed saying that buys. All your children were there. Ones! With my wife. Not the ones with with Sally. Hemmings Oh heavens. No! It may children with my Concubine Sally hemmings. Were themselves slaves, as of course was Saturday as was the custom of the time so. was. Your white children. Are Around your deathbed Oh. Yes, it I tell them i. it just occurred to me that I had made a mistake in a declaration that all men are created equal should have meant exactly that. The toll man, no matter their race whether or not they own property that all men are created equal and should be free. And what was their reaction Oh? Not Good, not good at all. Because you owned a lot of slaves their monticello precisely. So your kids, the ones from your wife. They understood you to mean that your slaves should be freed. Yes and you can imagine the Hullaballoo. They wanted. To keep the Slaves Oh. Yes, they went insane. But father who's going to do other work around the plantation of father you do know. Why would rich down chew because we have slaves? So they were that sarcastic Lamari was Martha was always very sweet father pray Ted who is going to do the cooking in the laundry and housekeeping. And I, said the slaves. Vitamin. Whoa I'm sorry. I'm confused and said were they believe me they thought. I wanted to free all the say's, which was not at all by intention when I said all men are created equal interest that all men. Not, women. Are you saying that all men should have equal rights, but not women well, yes. That shouldn't be said difficult to understand. All men are created equal. Just let that's all man should be afforded the same rights and privileges. All other men women however are completely different matter altogether. They're women. So. Your intention was Monticello. To keep its women slaves as as slaves. I see no reason why not. And, and what did your children think about that I? Don't know that's when he died. Okay! I just think my listeners. Might find all of this. Deeply disturbing. Look I was privileged white man born in seventeen, forty, three, okay. That's where I got to and in t twenty four, since then I've been dead. It's hot to volve when you're dead. And yes, I I was not a perfect man. I fathered six children with my slave. Sally hemmings I know today. That sounds very bad, okay? By the way would have freed the three boys. Okay. Guess no one's perfect and I mean you did right there. We are always striving to be a more perfect union. That's in the preamble of the Constitution.

A New Declaration of Dependence On God

"This, fourth of July we find our nation more divided than perhaps at any other time since the civil war. That's what happens when a nation abandoned God and Rejects Truth Colson Center I'm John Stonestreet. This break point. On July Fourth, two thousand and four Chuck Colson breakpoint commentary was entitled a New Declaration of dependence reading through it again recently I was struck by just how prophetic his words were as a student of history chuck not only understood the founding principles of our nation, as expressed in the declaration of independence, but he understood on what those principles were grounded. So what happens chuck ass when the foundations are rejected? What happens when religion? Truth and public virtue are all made non essential. What happens when citizens want the benefits of the American experiment without taking seriously what it requires of us will here's Jet Colson from July second, two thousand four. Fourth Celebrates our liberty and national independence. I get through every time I hear. The cannons blast that rousing finale of the eighteen twelve overture, and I got a lump in my throat whenever I join in singing America America. God shed His grace on the. Indeed God has blessed America this nation dedicated to the proposition that all men are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights has endured two hundred twenty eight years. America's the oldest constitutional republic on Earth. But all is not well in our land. When Thomas Jefferson Penn, the immortal words of the Declaration of Independence, he deliberately appealed the creator, or he acknowledged an overriding obligation to nature and nature's got, and he understood that ordered. Liberty is not just a subjective preference, but a divinely ordained condition for which human beings are designed. But. Over the last few decades, legions of skeptics have mounted a massive assault on these self evident Ruth's in prestigious schools in the halls of government, and especially in the Supreme Court. God is banished from public compensation. If a public schoolteacher introduce Jefferson's ideas and language into the classroom today, she likely be called on the carpet, possibly disciplined. This assault on God in public cultures severely damages our democracy. If God is thrown out of our history, we lose our basis for believing that individuals have rights and dignity in an empty universe. We have no meaning no value without God. There are no inalienable rights and no certain proof that liberty is better than tyranny or that life better than death. Everything's a matter of opinion and power. The references to God, the Declaration of Independence provide a foundation for moral argument within civil society and moral truths pervade our founding documents from beginning to end without God is the source of all these moral principles. The Public Square would quickly revert to the law of the jungle. Brutish power would prevail the week. The unborn, the elderly, the gravely ill could be quietly terminated. Much as I enjoy the anthems and fireworks more than that is called for on this July fourth. We need to confess our moral failures in our national sins, repenting of allies of. Killing innocent babies and the elderly. Renewal begins on our knees. It's there. We hear soul searching questions from God himself asking how long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked rescue the weekend needy deliver them from the hand of the wicked. Our nation's founding document declared independence from Britain. But with equal fervor declared dependence upon God expressing firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence. The signers committed the American experiment. Do their maker the spirit of seventeen seventy six was reverence and trust. So as we mark this solemn occasion, let us seek a rebirth of true liberty, which is possible, only when governed by divine law for without God, we could never have liberty and justice for

"You, I was one of the few members of Congress back when I was in Congress. That was actually shadow ban by twitter. Yeah, and so we ought to put that out on a tweet. See if they take that down. They'll say it wasn't shadow van that we were but only to be for a conservative members of Congress. Myself Matt Gaetz Devin. nudist Jim Jordan. Didn't fall into that she didn't make it into. That were so the things that that's important is that we need to make sure that the free press is really the free press, and it's not censored, and what a what twitter has done probably more so than some of the other social media platforms, but Youtube is doing it as well. Is that they come in, and they start to actually monitor content. Yeah, and so it's not this free open what I call the wild wild west of social media. That's the way I and his freedom loving individuals. We want the free market the. But when the free market starts to get, monopolized by content police then it's important for us to step in, and so we did an Eeo that actually has the potential of taking away their their protection from litigation, so if we can't fix it or if Congress can't fix it, let the trial attorneys fix it. It'll happen. Quick unleashing the. The trial attorneys is a really powerful weapon and I got to say. This is an issue where White House leadership was so needed, and it's so important because we you and I've talked about this before. One of the challenges on the issue of a big tech censorship is all the federal agencies are silent, and and and it's hard issue where the antitrust. Antitrust Division Department of Justice doesn't quite fit into what they think. They WANNA do the. FTC doesn't quite fit. In. Where do they WANNA do? The FCC everyone has is sort of looking at their own slice of the problem in the president's executive order on this was important to say dammit. This matters I think it's the biggest threat to democracy and the whole country, but we needed we needed the president and the White House to lead to get the rest of the executive focused on protecting free speech altogether right well, the interesting thing also I always try to give you a little bit of a back story that no one else knows so that he uh-huh as it relates to section two thirty. We started putting it around for a little bit of comment on a very limited basis all the sudden. This proposed e shows up in the New York Times, and and it really was fed to the New York Times by a federal worker that didn't agree with this administration, or at least it appears that they didn't, and they didn't agree with the e Oh, and so they took it and fed it to outside sources and I'm glad to say that were able to track that person down. They no longer work for the federal government. Let. Let me ask a question. That's I hadn't heard that story. That's that's a great story. Let me. Take a slightly different ranch, so the marquess now I think is may well be the hardest job at all Washington. I think that's probably true and I I love seeing the surprise on crews face. When he hears about this leaker. It's funny. You just expect. Everybody's on the same page in Washington, and they all are constantly talking to each other, and I have found. Talking to a lot of big players in Washington, that is not the case, there actually is surprise. There are these human interactions really do matter and I love the way that Mark Meadows says that he's. That individual is no longer working for the Federal Government Yep. That's a very diplomatic way to put it a lot lot more great stuff in that interview, so head on over. You can check that out of the verdict podcast also on the show today on the Rubin report is my first time. Believe it or not going on the Rubin report.

"President, trump announced yesterday a big police reform plan in the Rose Garden. The plan is receiving mixed reviews. I will tell you the good, the bad and the ugly. Here's the president. Thank you all for being here as we take historic action? To deliver a future of safety insecurity for Americans. Of every race, religion, color and creed. We're joined today by law, enforcement professionals and community leaders. Though we may all come from different places and different backgrounds. were united by our desire to ensure peace and dignity and equality for all Americans okay, of course we believe all of this. It's good to president. Trump is taking charge. We need strong leadership as the cities are burning, but is this the way to do it? Police reform. If I had my druthers. If I were advising the president I would have president trump releasing executive order on criminal justice reform that puts more of these criminals burning the cities down into prison. I think that's probably the better angle I think. Unfortunately, some of president trump's advisors are convincing him to buy into the left wing premise that the police are hopelessly racist and bigoted and slaughtering innocent black men around the country. We know that isn't happening. Okay, we have the statistics. We went through them just last week I. Think on the show. How many unarmed black men were killed by police last year, and by the way unarmed does not mean not dangerous. Unarmed does not mean that the use of force was justified, but let's even use that number unarmed. How many nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine? It's nine. Every death is a tragedy. But nine is not evidence of systemic police, brutality and racism. And yet, that's the premise that the left wants us to buy into and wants to buy into that so that they can get their agenda in there without really having to sell it to the American people. So just think the whole idea of this. Am I against police reform? No I think powerful institutions should constantly be reforming themselves of course. But. Is that the message we want to send I mean what does the do? It doesn't do very much at all. It requires a new federal credentials for police departments. Is just another federal regulation, being foisted on states and local governments, and it bans choke holds in most instances this is. This is the only part of the Yoyo with teeth. Attorney General Standards for certification, she'll require independent credentialing bodies to at a minimum confirm that the state and local. Law enforcement agencies use of force policies prohibit the use of colds, except in those situations where the use of deadly force as allowed by law, so even there. If they use with deadly courses, allow them they can use a chokehold better. They say the caves at chokehold now in any case that seems like you're tying law enforcement's hands behind its back. The problem, it's not going to do very much as an Eeo I. Guess the White House thanks, it's going to be good messaging for people I don't think it's good messaging. Though I think we lose ground. Waiting we lose debates because we give up premises that the best example of this would be how we lost the marriage debate on the right. The marriage debate. Where are we going to expand the definition of marriage to include monogamous same sex unions? The marriage debate focused on a question. What is marriage? For All of human history, sexual difference seem to be at the center of narrative whether it was polygamous marriage in certain instances in some places whether it was monogamous marriage for most of the West. Is it is sexual difference have something to do with it as the logical possibility of the creation of life of something to do with that. Yeah, the answer to that was always yes, and then a few years ago. We decided no. That doesn't have anything to do with it, so that's a debate. That's an interesting debate to have the way the left avoided that debate, which is favorable to the people who want to maintain a traditional meaning of marriage. Is. They just presumed the new definition. They said Oh marriage is a union of people who love each other. They just they. They redefined it first, and then they said the marriage debate is about rights. Do you have the right to get married? But that was never with the debate was about and nobody opposes equal rights so by the time they get. They got that premise through. The people who wanted to keep traditional definition of marriage already lost the debate. was already there was no debate to be had. I think that's what the left succeeds at maybe more than anything, and that's how they get so much institutional power. If you see the premise that the police are racist, terrible, bigoted people who are brutal and they used force an end to be reined. Then, it's a lot easier to get through. A radical leftist premises most of which have nothing to do with. Black lives mattering civil rights for racial minorities or anything like that. But they get the premise in, and so they get their policy solutions. We lose ground. Because we give the premises, you see this, not just on on these racial issues. You see this on the virus as well. How much I hate to say I told you so I would never do that me well sometimes. And on this I will. I. Did a show week or two ago. That said Race Riots Cure Corona virus. Because the mainstream media and the public health experts and the politicians told US krona virus was super super-duper deadly. If you ever walk outside your home, you're gonNA, kill grandma, and then all of a sudden there were all these leftist riots and the public health officials very same ones said Oh, no, go out there. Yeah, go out by the tens of thousands and breathe all over each other. That's fine. You'RE NOT GONNA get Corona virus that will actually help. Stop the spread of Corona virus, but if a few conservatives want to maintain their civil liberties, that is deadly. You can't do that. So I said Okay I. Guess the RACE RIOTS CORONA VIRUS TURNS OUT IT turns out. That might be true or in a way. It's True Minneapolis. which had the biggest uprisings? is now reporting over two weeks later. Few, new positive cases according to health officials. You would think. After craziness out there. Two weeks later pass, thank you basin period. You'd have a spike in cases right. Hasn't happened.

"Got To grow a spine, folks gotta grow some Cojones as if you want to have an effective political movement. Speaking of these sorts of questions. Just to see what we're up against from the other side of the Senate I'll Tim Kaine US senator, the man who was almost one heartbeat away from becoming the second woman President Tim Kaine. Gave a speech yesterday on the Senate floor in which he blamed America. For inventing slavery and the only problem with Tim Kaine speech is that it was completely untrue. We need to do much more within the criminal justice system, but also with an all of our systems to dismantle the structures of racism that our federal state and local governments carefully erected and maintained. Over centuries. We know a little bit about this in Virginia. The first African Americans into the English colonies came to Point Comfort Virginians Sixteen nineteen. They were slaves. They captured against their will, but they landed in colonies. It didn't have slavery. There were no laws about slavery in the colonies at that time. The United States didn't inherit slavery from anybody. We created it. I, think maybe Tim Kaine should check up on his history. Actually in the Declaration of independence written by that Guy who got cancelled Thomas Jefferson Jefferson complains about how the incipient United States inherited slavery from the British and complained about that as an institution that was that has had a negative impact on the country where Tim Kaine think. The slaves came from when they landed in Virginia. The slaves came from Africa. And they were bought from African slave. Traders people who still practice slavery to this day. Slavery is still practiced in the Middle East. To this day. Slavery still practiced in East Asia to this very day as a matter of fact, not only did the united. States not invent slavery. Slavery goes back not just to those slave traders in the centuries before the United States came to be goes all the way back to. Ancient Egypt for instance might be might who've Mister Cain to read the Bible see what the Egyptians did to. The Jews in Egypt goes back threat all of human history ironically. The West is the only place that's ever polished slavery. It's not that we invented slavery. We didn't, but we did. Abolish it and virtually no one else has. That's a good thing. Ironically Tim Kaine mentions. Have Slavery came to Virginia the first. Officially declared owner. Oven arbitrarily declared slave for life. Right the beginning of what we would call our modern system of slavery in America. Was a black man. He was a black man from Angola. Now, obviously, slavery then went on to become a highly racial. Is D- system that led to? Racial consequences that went on for centuries. But it shows you that the situation of how slavery began much more complicated than mister. CAIN would have you believe. A lot of a lot of people believe this thing if a sitting us, senator believes a lie like this think about how many people have been taught the very same lie. Our. Goal is conservatives. Our job is to push back against those things and yet unfortunately we keep giving into left-wing premises, and unfortunately I think even some of the advisers around the president or beginning to buy into some of those premises. We'll get to that in one second. We'll get to president trump's big announcement yesterday. We will get to how the riots. Actually did cure corona virus. I called that one too, and we will get to my interview with the White. House chief of Staff Mark Meadows at the White House. I was in Washington last week to stop by the white. House and take a minute to sit down with the chief of staff will get a little bit of that. I owe got to thank our friends over at keeps. I think I've told you many times.

"Really dispiriting here. That pretty much. Everybody is going in on the statue toppling. Most conservatives are not saying. We actually need to pull down the statues where we actually need to rename things but. What some conservatives are doing is granting the left's premise that these people Thomas Jefferson Christopher Columbus actually were terrible. Rotten people in the reality is it's just not true, so there's a writer at the Washington. Examiner Tiana low who you know I like watching her when she goes on Cable News I, have nothing against her. Personally. I don't I don't mean to attack her. But, she published a very bad. Take very incorrect to take which is titled Christopher. Columbus was pretty evil by the standards of his own time. We've heard this. I've read versions of this article. Many many times specifically since two thousand six. That's when it's become especially popular, and the story runs something like this. We think Chris Columbus is a good guy, but actually there are accounts that came out that say he was a monster. He was the tyrant of the West indies. He was evil by the standards, even of his own day and everyone around him thought to be was a no good terrible rotten person. Not True, all of those accounts rely on one defamatory letter written by Francisco to Bobby Dea. Columbus's chief political rival in the new world. To rely on this guy's account to give us the whole picture of Columbus, life would be like relying on Hillary Clinton's biography of Donald Trump. Tell us everything about Donald Trump. I, maybe there's a thing or two. That's true in there, but the bias is so overwhelming. The conflict of interest is overwhelming that it's not a reliable source, and they all every one of these attacks on Columbus uses this one guy who had it out to get him. And Columbus by the way was so offended by the account that bogere wrote of him that he actually turned down money from the crown. To to fight against this defamatory stuff. Okay. He spent eastbound. Moment practically until his dying day after this was written, trying to get this written out of his his record, because he felt it was so untrue so defamatory and the crown by the way the Spanish ground. That set Columbus on the voyage, and then picked Boba Dea to replace him. The Spanish crown had a lot of interest in believing. Nobody is account because then it could withhold the full amount of money that they owed Christopher Columbus. There was a lot of politics involved. The reality is Christopher. Columbus is one of the greatest men who ever walked the earth. Okay, even on this. This issue of how he treated the natives, compared to the Spaniards, who traveled with? Columbus was relatively a pretty good guy who weighed in on their behalf who adopted the son of one of his native American friends who even a Bortoli Mandela's causes the I resident Bishop of the Americas one of the great defenders of native Americans for the first great defender of wrote of Columbus that he was a good guy. He was in an mirer Christopher Columbus until the end of his life on top of that he was the greatest navigator of his age. He was more or less self taught. He was a relatively low birth. He married well, he he moved up. He was relentless. He traveled all over the place. He lobbied Portugal to send him on this quest around the world to the to the indies. He lobbied Spain to do it, he. Read books and books and books. Worked every angle of the system, and then he made it to the new world using nothing, but did reckoning. He didn't even have the most basic equipment. As he was travelling dead reckoning and discovered this world that we now get to enjoy, and from which we get to spit on Columbus's memory. It's just. Unfortunate. Not to appoint onto it. Why are we doing this? Why are even conservatives? Buying some of these premises. Maybe. We shouldn't tear the statue down by. Columbus was a pretty bad guy. Wasn't great You Know Thomas Jefferson he was pretty bad guy at Robert e Lee Guy Specially Robert, e Lee I mean he was a southerner he he fought for the confederacy. Dag Nab. That's the only thing they ever say about him. Wire some conservatives willing to do this. Some people still don't get it. Some people think that this is just about only the left only the right and they're totally different and totally different perspectives. They think we only have economic problems. They're totally different from cultural problems. They're completely separate. They think that one odd feature of our culture today is. We're not replacing ourselves. No one's having any kids anymore or birth rate is below replacement. They think that problem. Problem is totally disconnected to the fact that our nursing homes are overrun and just got wrecked by Corona virus specifically in New York story came out with Andrew Cuomo packing up the nursing homes. They think these are totally disconnected that that we're not replacing ourselves. We're not having kids and we don't know what to do with our old people with our parents and our grandparents. Seems to me. They're not completely separate problems any of these things. Seems to me. All of these issues derive from the same central pathology of modernity. Selfishness I think it's simple I think it's actually a simple answer. You don't need some Highfalutin political jargon here. I think it comes down to selfishness. Okay, and you know that we're a bit of a selfish. Culture now we spend an entire month celebrating pride pride, the definition of selfishness friends self self obsession. I think there's a real connection here. A culture that does not value. It's inheritance whether it's a financial money, inheritance, or whether it's a cultural inheritance. Is Going to squander that, and it's not going to pass anything along to its posterity except for debt. Right so this is a weird thing. We live in a culture now. That does not leave an inheritance to future generations. It leaves debt. Likewise a generation that's not interested in the future, not interested in posterity, not interest didn't having kids or leaving them anything. Has No reason at all to pass on their their cultural inheritance or their financial inheritance or anything who cares about the history of America? Who Cares about Thomas Jefferson? Who cares about any of our traditions? We don't even care about the future. We don't care about who comes after us. W- the fact that we're forgetting about our past ties into the fact that we're forgetting about our future and vice versa, and what you have remembered this line from George Orwell and nineteen eighty-four line goes. Every record has been destroyed or falsified. Every book rewritten. Every picture has been repainted. Every statue and Street building has been renamed. Every date has been altered and the process continuing day by day minute by minute history has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the party is always right. That's George Orwell. Describing this this sort of dystopia and health scape in nineteen, eighty-four and that description I think. Suits progressives pretty well. Progressives hate the past. It's right there in their name. They want to progress beyond the past. The progressives always want to topple the statues down. And maybe even the sad part is, it's basically suits, conservatives well as well because conservatives. At least in recent years have only been focused on the present. They haven't been focused on. Conserving very much of anything. You saw this at the Supreme Court just this week. But you you've seen this in in recent decades, we've. We've lost on so many issues. We've given up so many things. And then there's this irony, which is that conservatives always talking about fiscal responsibility yet. When we get into the government, we spend just as much money if not more as the left. because..

"Thomas Jefferson is canceled. He's canceled. It was only a matter of time, but the man who wrote the Declaration of Independence One of the fathers of our country. He's canceled a statue of Thomas. Jefferson that was erected outside of Thomas Jefferson high school was toppled in North Portland Oregon. It was then spray painted one of the bits of spray paint, said slave owner, there are lots of signs and insulting things written all around it. Rioters knocked down two more statues on the very same night, and I'm trying to remember thinking back to way way back like maybe two years ago. If somebody could have predicted this. Washington was a slave owner. Was Yours Washington, a slave owner, so we'll. George, Washington now loses status a we going to take down. Excuse me a week to take down. Are we going to take down statues to judge? How Thomas Jefferson? Thomas Jefferson you like them. Okay, good! Are we going to take down the statues? Because he was a major slave owner now we're gonNA take down his statue. So. You know what it's fine. You're changing history. You're changing culture. He's right. You're changing history. You're changing culture and no one including many many conservatives is willing to do a damn thing about it and I have a hunch Y. I'm Michael Knowles. This is the Michael Knowles show. Welcome back, not just Thomas Jefferson who got knocked down basically anybody who is involved in any way integration of this country is getting knocked down and even some conservatives. are kind of okay with this. I'm not saying they're calling for the statues to come down, but they're kind of okay with this. They're playing into the left premises I have a hunch why and I think the problem actually runs a lot deeper than anybody's talking about I think most of her modern political problems all tie in to the same central issue. Jefferson goes down to other statues. GO DOWN IN PORTLAND. A couple of nights ago. Columbus Christopher Columbus. You know they've been tearing down. Statues beheading statute vandalizing statues of Columbus for years now. A Columbus Statue. is officially coming down. This is according not just to the writers, but to the school administration at Columbus State Community College in Columbus Ohio. I don't know if they thought through this all the way. If they're gonNA. Give into the premise here. Columbus is a really bad, terrible, racist, big terrible guy. that. They're going to the statue down the probably going to rename the school right well if they renamed the school that probably going to rename town, right? You can't. You can't live in this racist town named after a racist person. If they're going to rename the town, they're probably going to read it in the country, right? At Columbia you know like Pablo Escobar Columbia. They're named after Christopher Columbus. Why are there popular uprisings in Columbia we have to rename the country because of the terrible history of this terrible terrible man, this this according to the President of Columbus State Community College. The removal of Christopher Columbus statue is a symbolic gesture of our commitment to our college, and in our community to continue accelerate the fight against systemic racism, recent events, including the senseless deaths of African Americans, and the resulting anguish across the nation, compelled us to act on a years long internal dialogue about the statue in the message it sends to our community the message namely that it's a that the places named after Christopher Columbus. It's pretty simple message. Message Right. This inflection point will inform college policy and action, both now and for years to come it. Will you're right? It will inform college policy and probably town policy in probably state policy, and probably national policy is well the most dispiriting part of this for me, but I think also the most illuminating is that it's not just these liberals running colleges. It's not just the far left rioters running Chaz and chop and every right around the country. Even, some conservatives are buying into this bogus premise. We'll get to that one second. I I got to think our friends over at movement. You're probably spending a lot of time scaring your screen right now. That's what we've all been doing for many months frilly. It's what we've all been doing for many years. You gotTA protect. Your is okay. We're living in crazy times right now. We've made some pretty significant lifestyle. Adjustments were spending more time than ever on digital screens. That's why the team over movement wants to make sure that you're.

"By that. I hadn't seen an notice Chris how she really steps into the kind of diva aesthetics of people like Aretha of people the lake but knee like you're saying it was very like Vanilla Walt Disney and then she transformed herself and sort of looking at like the aretha Houston's of the world at the time is that what. You're yeah I think is just interesting to see what vocal models. She was. Latching herself onto. You know even at that early age and so I I think when we talk about appropriation pop music. I think we kind of do this hand. Wavy thing we're like Oh that pops was weight and then now they're black and now they're we're trying to be white again when it's actually like a lot more ambivalent than that you know she lays the groundwork of you know I grew up. I learned how to sing. I found my voice through the soul and R&B in jazz legends like literally blackness in her vocal cords and has ben from the start. And so it's not a matter of playing the you know I got you. I got you a caught you borrowing from blackness but rather looking at how you know. These ascetics have already been sort of a part of her vocal performance and visual performance. and rather looking at how how that mutates and has been sort of like differently emitted you know across her career and so to get back to can't hold us down we we now have this. There's artists who you know sort of started off singing like a diva but looking like a pop princess. Yeah now kind of appropriating and taking on the visuals of someone like Little Cam and you know trying to speak in this sort of like hood language that like it just it becomes very you know discount new. It doesn't it doesn't work so can I bring up someone someone else. WHO's a little controversial gopher and to be honest with you in preparation for this interview? I spent a little bit of time you because I normally wouldn't not that I have anything against pop music stars. I don't it's like the Mama News coming out right now. I did spend a little bit of time looking at Arianna `Grande like seriously I didn't know this thing like Arianna Rhonda. It was just kind of not in my world music. I mean I'm sure I know her music had her. But I'm sorry to say that. I became more aware of her when the shooting happened at her concert in Manchester England right but then this week in preparation. Yikes I when my team showed me the pictures Shire's of Arianna as a teenager and Arianna. Now I was like wait. What so? Yeah there's like a people talking about the fact that she's getting consistently only darker that the way she looks actually is kind of like a chore.

"I can't believe I'm mentioning Christina later like three or four minutes after Thomas Jefferson was brought up but this was two thousand and three. Her video was called. Can't hold us down from her album. Stripped you also in the briefly mentioned other pop star Britney Spears Miley Cyrus but what I'm when I'm fascinated about how you dissect idealize career from the evolution of physical appearance to the sound of her voice. So Lauren tell us we'll hi Christina Aguilera in your opinion is the perfect example of cultural appropriation. As opposed to say someone like Gwen Gwen Stafani Joe Joe or any other pop star of that era. I think they're things through close reading and so I love to take a cultural object whether it's a pop star or a trend and really just like massage it and you know see what comes out and so I think they're definitely other pop stars. I could have pull from like this. Could have totally been a chapter about Justin Timberlake true at the end of the day. It was kind of like he wasn't really that interesting to me. I don't know it's like like who do you want to spend all his time with bliss relating to all their albums rewatching all their music videos reading profiles interviews and I was like. Do I really want to spend that time with Justin Timberlake. Do I really want to spend that time. Even with Miley Cyrus Way do touch upon a little bit and not really want to talk about Christine. Aguilera this pop fixture at least in my Sort of like listening habits. Yeah who I feel like. I don't know I feel like in some ways. We haven't haven't really you know we haven't had that moment where we really look back in sort of like revisit. The origins of her career like we have with you know timberlake when he You know decided to have his like man in the woods. That's right we're like oh like why is he you know he seems to be pivoting to another racial setting so yeah I think I just is really thought it would be really fun to look back at Christine Aguilera and both reevaluate this. Like very strange moment in early you to thousands music and music videos but then also learn about how she got her start which his you know. There are a lot of things that I actually didn't know about. You know I hadn't seen the Mickey Mouse Club. The gang singing.

"Welcome to the podcast about politics. Race and culture from POC perspective. I'm mighty wholesome and I'm Julia the Laura and joining us from my favorite city. Hello hello the city where I grew up Chicago Lauren. Michelle Jackson. She's a professor of Singlish and African American studies at Northwestern University in Evanston Illinois. She's also the author of the New Book White Negroes when when Chor rose were in vogue and other thoughts on cultural appropriation. Hey Lauren welcome to the show thank you for having me so your book basically looks at the appropriation of black culture through the Lens of Pop Culture and through history and well essentially you look at how white people always prophet of anything black which is like pretty intense right but you lay out this argument basically from language to politics to the art pretty much. Everything of the title of your book is modeled after the White Journalist and author Norman Mailer who in nineteen fifty seven wrote an essay titled The White Negro. Now you write quote. Cultural Theft is only the symptom the readily identifiable faial mark of Whiteness in crisis. The hipster seeks out the Negro because from who better to learn the transitive properties of living then the community who could never take life for granted. So I guess let's just start. I mean that's a lot right. Norman mailer nine hundred fifty seven. You know everything everything that he's bringing up but just starting off like this. Do you believe that there is in fact a crisis in Whiteness. Right now and that it is in fact feeding off of black culture black strength black resistance to survive. I would say will yes But I'd also say that you know. Whiteness is by definition sort of in crisis so from you know the invention conception of a thing called the white race which is not as old. I think as we like to speak of it. You know it's only an idea a concept of philosophy that has existed for a few centuries you know this isn't this primordial identity inherent parents humankind. You know people haven't been thinking of themselves as white for very long in the course of human history and so you know. The invention of Whiteness is came out of a kind of mead to sort of justify crimes against other humans bray and so by definition. You you know whiteness is always needed to define itself and redefine itself and recalibrate what it means to be white in in the present day so I think yes we can look today and see these sort of very visible eruptions and fishers as far as how how why people think of themselves but we can also go fifty years ago one hundred years ago one hundred fifty years ago two hundred years ago all the way back to the beginnings of of Plantation Slavery in America and identify Whiteness in crisis. Who you and I are like looking like okay? Your argument saying Whiteness and crisis has been since slavery became part of the American identity. Is that so it's always been crisis is. Are you saying that Whiteness. This became identified when the first white folks can here and they had to identify and exert power over indigenous originate. People African people. Can you expand more on that. Because I'm like intrigued. I mean I I think both of what you know. You're kind of parsing out some version of the truth and full disclosure. I'm not an expert on sort of early American philosophy and literature but I mean you look at something something like Thomas. Jefferson's notes on the state of Virginia. And the way in which he takes great pains to sort of extricate. Okay this is you. You know this is the white race and this is what it is and this is the black race in this African race and this is what it is. These are native peoples in these. Are you know the specific traits. That even men Dr Not Super Coherent within these groups that he's trying the sex on that he's trying to lay out but there's definitely a reason why that taxonomy has to be insisted stood upon because if there isn't something identifiable about whiteness that places itself above all these other categories he's and you know is free to kind of well from the Labor of these people and the genocide of these people than it's like you know that's that's a profound existential essential crisis. I mean that's the United States of America. Yeah it's like why are we here. But what's interesting like this is where I love the fact that Thomas Jefferson was brought up and now we're going to fast forward to Moscow and modern time. Because I think this is from Thomas Jefferson from Yeah Yeah from Thomas Jefferson to pop culture right now and in your book you're connecting these iconic moments in the pop culture and you you trace them back right you trace them back coach of the black community.

"He was Thomas Jefferson <hes> so Thomas Jefferson is one of our founding fathers in the United States so he was third president from he was our second vice president. He was our first secretary of state. <hes> he was also the author of the American Declaration of Independence so he was he was a pretty prominent important person in in the history the founding of the United States and <hes> as as I'm going to argue <hes> he's also really important in the history of crypto zoology too which is not one of his achievements that he's a he's usually recognized for yeah indeed. I didn't didn't know anything about this. Did you like not until her justice presentation so no now I did know about one tiny aspect of it. I remember watching among the it was Kim Burns did Lewis Clark documentary and they were talking about <hes> on the loose and Clark Expedition Jefferson was specifically asking Lewis Clark or to look for specific animal but I don't spoil that so <hes> will let let Justin get into that but no I was basically completely ignorant of this and my hope is that our listeners will also be somewhat ignorant and we'll be excited to learn you stuff. I mean I mean what we want to do as much as possible I think of <hes> our audience is like a giant coloring book and we're just coloring them in with science in history so <hes> in waiter I am. I don't know where that is coming from. That's probably Tequila so just this move on fresh. Okay I lost Thomas Jefferson have to do with cryptic zoology so yeah. This is not an aspect of Jefferson's life that is is I I would agree with you. Guys is it's not particularly well known <hes> which is not to say that has not been well documented that was one of the things that really surprised me about this when I started digging into it is that they're actually a lot of books and essays and and papers out there that talk about this but the kind of like Blake was saying they only talk about little facets of it and so what I really wanted to try and kind of put like this whole picture together about Jefferson's sort of crypto zoological logical career and and also just actually how important it was because this was not just some kind of like Lark he had on the side. I think that this is actually very instrumental to understanding Jefferson as a person and also <hes> it's instrumental to understanding branding his conceptualization of what America <hes> shouldn't and would become <hes> so to really though get into understanding the relationship between Jefferson encrypt zoology as I talked about right in my presentation you can't really start with Jefferson you have to start with <hes> another guy <hes> a very different person and that was a George Louis Leclerc <hes> who was also known as the count of Buffon and he he was a French <hes> scientist is basically a celebrity scientist. He was born in <hes> seventeen seven and he went to the University of angers. <hes> if I'm remembering that correctly yeah the University of anger is where he graduated in seventeen thirty two <hes> and almost immediately after he got out of college he was given a a job with the French Royal Academy of Science in their engineering department and then that immediately landed him a contract with the French navy <hes> working on redesigning their ships and because of ships were out of would at the time Jeff von decide that he needed to not only know everything there was to know about ships he need to know everything there was no about trees which meant that he they need to know everything there wasn't about plants which led to this.
