"I was first introduced to Chad pray that when I heard about his book, am I crazy and unapologetic patriot takes on the insanity of today's woke world. He's our kind of person. Chad prather is an American conservative political commentator, comedian and Internet personality. That's the official bio. He's also a Texas gubernatorial candidate and been described as sort of a modern day Will Rogers. Chad has great meaning and thanks for joining us here on the Mike Gallagher show. How you doing? Hey, Mike, it's good to be with you. I'm a big fan of the show love what you do. I appreciate you having me on. Well, I'm a big fan of your show and your work as well. Your podcast is terrific. And your book, two thirds of the way through because I need some affirmation that I'm not the crazy one. My late wife Denise used to say, we had a running joke. If you're crazy, do you know it? And I think it's a fair question. So when, for example, the New York City council votes unanimously to remove the statue of Thomas Jefferson because he owned slaves. When Lori Lightfoot poses maskless in a crowd full of people indoors violating her own mask mandate, all these things that keep happening over and over again, you and I know they're crazy, but Chad the $64,000 question for you as we begin this conversation, do they know they're crazy? I think the asylums are empty, Mike, I think they're running the street, not just running the street, but they're creating the policy and the culture we're living in. Unfortunately, we've given them a big voice. No, they don't know they're crazy. They think that this is their ideal. They think that they're doing something really good for the planet and doing things for the world that is absolving us all of our great sins of the past and history. Now, I think we're all at some level on the insanity spectrum. We have to be a little bit crazy just to make heads or tails of what we're seeing across the
New York City Will Remove Thomas Jefferson Statue From City Hall
"The black Latino and Asian caucus of New York City, the city council's black Latino and Asian caucus demanded the Thomas Jefferson statue be removed. If you're Asian, what do you care about Thomas Jefferson? If you're Latino, why do you care about Thomas Jefferson? If you're black, why do you care about Thomas Jefferson? He's dead. A lot of the founding fathers own slaves. Slavery is terrible. You want to erase? The author of our Declaration of Independence? My gosh.
The 1619 Project Lies About the Founding Fathers and Slavery
"The book is debunking the sixteen nineteen project and boy does it need debunking. It is preposterous. It's being pushed out there Mary you were You you are a resident fellow at the alexander. Hamilton institute for the study of western civilization. I learned i think only last night watching rick. Burns's nineteen ninety nine nine hundred ninety nine documentary about new york that alexander hamilton one of our founding fathers. He was very active in ending slavery. In his this is over two hundred years ago so again the sixteen nineteen project access though. That never happened exactly and another thing. Is i spend a considerable bowl amount of time on. Thomas jefferson one of the big lies of the sixteen. Nineteen project is that he never intended to abolish slavery. Now thomas jefferson owned hundreds of slaves. He was born into a slave owning family but even for him. That is completely false. He spent his life trying to figure out a way to end slavery peacefully how to how to avoid a civil war he saw that coming and so is completely false to even charge. Thomas jefferson with wanting to continue slavery. That is completely false. It may not be in the way that nicole. Hannah jones in the other riders. What have it which was to start a communist revolution. But he was someone who did want to abolish slavery peacefully.
The Time Has Come to Reclaim the American Republic
"The time has come to reclaim what is ours. As I write in American Marxism. What is ours, the American Republic from those who seek to destroy it. If we expect others to rescue our nation for us, as we go about our daily lives as mere observers to what is transpiring Or close our eyes and ears to current events. We will lose the struggle and yes, it's a struggle. We've allowed the American Marxists to define who we are as a people. They d famous land. Our ancestors in history and trash have founding documents and principles. They're mostly reprobates who hate the country. And have contributed nothing to its betterment. Fact they live off the sweat and toil of others. You While they pursue a destructive and diabolical course for our nation. Undermining its sabotaging virtually every institution in our society. The ideology and worldview are based on the arguments and beliefs of a man Karl Marx, whose writings are responsible for the enslavement. Impoverishment, torture and death of untold millions. This is a hard fact. Despite the predictable protest stations from some in our society who embrace an advanced Marxism score ideas. But attempted disassociate themselves from responsibility for its inevitable outcomes. These are the useful idiots who occupy influential and leadership positions of the Democratic Party, media, academia, culture and so forth. But we must take solace and find strength in the sacrifice and bravery of our early revolutionaries. Joseph Warren Samuel Adams. John Hancock, Paul Revere, Tom Paine. To name just a few. And become energized and inspired by the wisdom and genius of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson. John Adams, James Madison.
Should Discussions of Race Make It Into Our School Curriculum?
"Only thing i'm saying is when you're teaching history to a bunch of kids you know you have to teach at all at least you have to teach the basic pointers and for black americans. The history of this country has been less than favourable. So i think that in the context of that discussion saying and to this day. We still have some problems with race. There are some legacies of slavery that still affect black people working on it today. Something like that. That's a kind of racial ization that i'm in favor of because it doesn't encourage stereotyping. It doesn't encourage discrimination. It just encourages a base awareness of some serious problems. So but that's not happening right. Is that largely what we're seeing through school districts like chicago And in washington. Dc and the entire california school system representing ten thousand schools and six million student. I've seen the of documents on those. Yeah it is that it. It doesn't have that kind of nuance and complexity that you just present right where it's eight. Let me just say this has that part of the kind of ark angel triumphant of the woke ism. Coalition is nicole. Hannah jones robin diangelo. Mex- and nicole hannah jones in particular right the author of the sixteen nineteen project She heretical says that america was founded on slavery. Right and so part okay with that but it's just not true. Depends on what you mean by found this. She defines this. She says the founding fathers were in favorite not true. George washington wasn't john adams wasn't john quincy. Adams wasn't thomas jefferson even signed a moratorium new slaves coming into the united states ben franklin chair and anti-slavery convention in seventeen seventy five. None of these guys were writing x. Positionally how wonderful slavery. This isn't being taught to third graders sixteen nineteen projects little new york op. Ed and you know it's not a see that's where you're wrong. The sixty nineteen projects being implemented at school district curriculum in thousands of school districts across grew. Cross it's not just like a podcast. This curriculum there are principles of the sixteen nineteen project that i think are defensible. First of all we as americans tend to think of the founding of our country as its legal founding. You know but the legal. Founding of the united states didn't really mean much for a slave.
American Man Helping Afghans Settle in the U.S.
"This story is not from someone trying to escape from afghanistan. But someone who's trying to help others get out of afghanistan. My name is douglas drier and I'm just an ordinary american citizen that Believes in doing the right thing. So how is my understanding that you're doing some work to help some some afghan nationals Settle and get families here to the to the us. How did you get connected with them. I met One of the brothers About five years ago at the store he worked at and to get a military discount. I showed him my retired. Id and he basically said oh. I used to work for the dod also and from his accent. I could tell he was not a native american. We got to talking and he was an interesting person. A very kind nice person so i invited him to talk at my rotary club in falls church and he agreed and i helped him work out a powerpoint presentation he gave a talk at the rotary club but during one meeting and he also gave a talk at the thomas jefferson high school for science and technology interact club and he's really opened up with the high school students and had a very compelling and interesting story about his work in afghanistan for supporting our troops so needless to say you got to know him. He introduced you to other family members. I i'm assuming and At some point you got involved in trying to help them help. Other family members come to the. Us is that right correct.
Was Lafayette Left out of the Cultural Spotlight? With Mike Duncan
"While i was preparing for our discussion today one thing that stood out to me is the sheer lack of movies or tv. Shows about or even including lafayette. If there's one thing we've pedia is good for its those lists where they show all the different cultural depictions from people and for lafayette. It has a whopping twenty four listings of movies. Tv shows or even songs that depict him. Why do you think he's been left out of the cultural spotlight. I went through the same thing that you did. Because i knew i was going to be coming on to do this. And talking about lafayette. You know in tv and movies and was like i don't actually remember him showing up that much I you know. I've i've seen him pop a few times. I think part of it is just like in the anglophone world like an english speaking world. there haven't been that many depictions even of just like the french revolution generally right and once lafayette leaves. The american revolution goes back to france. Most of his life and adventures are set in france and set against the backdrop of the french revolution. Which sure there have been some movies about that but it has never been like a recurring major source of movies and tv shows for the english. Speaking world i mean it's not like a western or even like pirate movies. And so if you're gonna if you're gonna get lafayette you're going to get him as a teenager in the american revolution and then even when you sort of like hone. In on the american revolution there are stories that are adjacent to events in the american revolutionary war of independence. But that even those are not exactly why a vibrant genre that keeps recurring. It's not like we keep going back and turning up but there's not like a movie every single year about the american revolution so he's already kind of confined to a spot that the historical imagination doesn't go back to actually give like if we were doing a show about Let's say the industrial revolution in britain. There's historical fiction set in industrial revolution britain. Every four months right there's always going to be a show about that. And so he's already kind of in a bit of a in a bit of a box and then he himself is just adjacent enough to kind of everything whether it's john adams or whether it's thomas jefferson or whether it's Ben franklin or george washington that he's always going to be just a very hillary character
Would Any Other Great President Have Left Afghanistan?
"Because what's happened here? Ladies and gentlemen will go down in history hundreds of years from now. Hundreds of years from now. Is one of the most Preposterous, appalling. Surrenders. By any superpower in history of mankind. We surrendered. I'm tired of these people who write to go on TV and so forth, and we never should have been there. We never should have been there. Really? We never should have been there. Almost 3000 of our people slaughtered. The Taliban. Give Al Qaeda safe haven Can you think of any president any great president who would have tolerated that from George Washington and Thomas Jefferson? The Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant. Theodore Roosevelt and Coolidge. Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan and beyond do you think they would have left? A terrorist cell. In a place where Americans were slaughtered. More deaths, as I recalled
No President Cares About Free Speech - Joe Biden Included
"Do you think you believe biden was was actually elected and i'm i'm fairly certain we're going to see information to the contrary soon. Everybody will have to look at it. But let's say he was the question that i have because i know you have to go. Do you think that he and his administration genuinely care about free speech. Because i don't get the impression that he that that he in the office of the president who has this tremendous bully pulpit that he gives a fig about what we are talking about right now. I don't think it even crosses his mind with the minds of the people as administration. I think they're making it work for them. Which to me is the greater scandal. Well i know. Joe biden for now. It's forty years. I like him as a person. I think he the right man for the job at this point in time. He's helping the combination. But no president kicker free speech. Thomas jefferson before he became president said given a choice between a government without newspapers or newspaper without governments. I would surely pick newspapers without government. Then he was president and then he issued a different statement. He said if nobody read newspapers. We'd be better off in smarter and fairer than if people read newspapers. So no incumbents like the media particularly and joe biden himself. I think we'll support free speech. But they're going to be people in his administration. He's appointed some people who are radically on the left just the way Republicans have appointed. Sometimes people are radically on the right. We need to move more to the center. We need to move more to all the old debate between genuine liberals in genuine conservatives. Both of whom bull we freedom of speech. I used to debate bill buckley. All the time on his television she was a conservative. A liberal enjoyed each other. We ran for a drink after we got along. There was no cancelled culture. I crave for the days of bill. Buckley versus alan dershowitz. Instead of the kind of cancel culture we're experiencing

Cross-Cultural Casting: Noteworthy for Hollywood, but Not Exactly New
"About unconventional casting choices in film and TV. Mindy Kaling playing Velma and Scooby Doo spinoff Black Jamaican actress Jodie Turner Smith playing the doomed wife of Henry, the eighth and the British miniseries and Berlin. My dear sister No holds a loose tongue in her head. So does this sort of diverse casting violate some unspoken rule about realism critic Bob Mondello takes a long view, he says. Cross cultural Casting has always raised eyebrows, even though it's as old as casting itself in the fifth century BC When the Greek playwright escalates, needed a defense attorney for his leading man in the tragedy, the Oresteia he picked the God Apollo choice You do not make if you're worried about verisimilitude in casting. Live theater has always assumed the audience can make imaginative leaps. Whether it's depicting warrior kings who rant my kingdom for a horse or founding fathers who rap.

"The conventional criticism of diverse casting is that it violates some unspoken rule about realism. It's utterly one way traffic. He will not be getting any white people.

There were five drafts. There is a committee of five chairman Livingston Franklin. John Adams and Jefferson. And Adams and Jefferson were tasked with the job of drafting the Declaration and Adams. Said that Jefferson is the best writer among the two and among the five Jefferson was only 33 years old, but he was a brilliant, brilliant man. So it was left to him. And so Started out one in the course of human events. It becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another. To assume among the powers of Earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them. A decent respect to the opinions of mankind. We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

What the Second Amendment really meant to the Founders
"You know, in my intro and then earlier segment early in the show I was talking about The primary purpose of the Second Amendment, according to the founding fathers, and I said My piece told listeners what I thought that the primary purpose of the Second Amendment, according to people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, What is in Mark Walters Mind the primary purpose. Of the Second Amendment. According to the phone and fathers. I love this because it's so provocative and I love to be provocative, and I'm gonna answer that with a question. Here's my question to you. We just talked about what Biden wants to do. Virginia the first time the Democrats took power in Virginia, for example, in 25 years. What's the first thing they did They chucked 12 Gun control bills down there. People throw up. Eight of them passing was signed into law. Joe Biden's first deal is gun control. I'm gonna answer the purpose of our founding fathers in the second Amendment with this question to you. What is it about their communist Marxist socialist masquerading his former Democrat agenda that requires you to be disarmed? Yeah. Very good point. And it would appear that great minds think alike because well, you know, we are way have Yeah, Me and George were in the world. Good company together. Way. Agree with each other. Martha. I guess the question is You know what is going to happen now? I mean, I look at it. It's like Texas that are actively talking about succession. Oh, yeah. You know, California's got bills by others, three different deals. They want to split that stable. You know, he was a really simple, quick Virginia. You know, I spent many a graduated college in Virginia. Lots of friends there lived in three different cities in Virginia know it well. It's a gun toting gun, love and freedom, love and bright red State. You've got two counties up there that control everything included with Richmond. The rest of the state is bright red. Why don't we have any electoral college at the state level? Okay? Yeah, Which would be which would kind of solve these problems. Where you New York State's a prime example. You get rid of that cess pool in Manhattan in the boroughs and New York State is a freedom loving, bright red state. Upstate New York's bright red Yep. Okay? Absolutely, you know, and you get rid of I mean term limits. Term limits scared me a little bit on Lee, because, well, what happens with term limits is you get the next term. Someone knows that's there. They could do anything they want. They're no longer held accountable to the voters that they don't have to hope if voters are hold them accountable. You know that old So what We do have term limits. We have elections. That's true, But they turn out the way they do in states like New York and California. Because we've got to a point. We have two or three cities controlling the rest of the state that needs to be looked at. Yeah, Georgia just gave you two of the worst senators in this country's history. And this is a bright red state. That isn't gonna be blue anytime soon. You look at the legislative makeup in the state and their redistricting coming up in July after this legislative session, you want to see Democrat controlled the state level the state Don't think of the rest of my life. And yet we just handed you too. The bluest worst of the worst senators, not because any red counties flipped blue. Nothing did They were able to siphon off more votes in two counties not being the cabin Fulton County And their six swing states. Basically, that have to fix their election systems of the way they do things in Michigan and Georgia. There's two of them right there, but nobody knew George was one of these states until that, you know, action. You see, that's why that's why people George, I would have never Guest. I wish Now, I will say this that we've been watching Stacey Abrams here for the last two years. Prior to the election in November. We all knew what she was up to. And here's the thing. I watched her vote on local news that night. Now here she is a resident of Atlanta. Hmm. And here she is. Dropping off an absentee ballot in a little mailbox been in downtown Atlanta. What? Why are you standing in line like the rest of us? Okay. That's where fraud comes from. Yeah, no signature verifications. Everybody gets mailed about it and they could go drop it in. No, no, no. No. Where I come from absentee ballots are for people like you who are serving their country overseas that need an absentee ballot Kids in college that can't make it back to their district to vote. My mom and dad who might be in Florida, and they're Georgia residents because they're they're from that's an absentee ballot. So those those issues are being addressed. Those issues are being addressed. They cut all ties to our gun rights, By the way, Yeah, and we'll have to address them on a different show because we are of time here, Mark.

Spain that are trained ocean on the east west. Lose up in the foothills and what they did is they done wet and made sparkling wine about one hundred years before champagne. Did now popularize sparkling wine. But they kinda sorta dead. Because that's where thomas. Jefferson came in and they found records from shallow.

Anything other than pain is kareem off so when he was having some fun with sally hemmings break out the bubbles they're drinking remove remodeling and monticello the got that going for but it's really kind of classy nice rate tasty and really good bubble. That's got the kind of the center dame. They have the same effect as salted pretzels at a bar. Restarting the pretzels. And you drink more beer while they're sitting in line. You don't need as you start drinking more one that's got that and it tastes great. It's mostly chardonnay. That's got shannon blocking got fifty percents pinot noir and chardonnay pinot noirs to staples of champagne and shannon block sparkling. Wine is one of my favorite. I don't get enough of it. He gets some really nice ones out of south africa. I think france should do more Yeah there should be more because certain block does sparkling one well and and it's in here. It tastes great. This is great tasting made bubbly. Build up the pressure in the bottle of champagne is way more than pretty much anywhere else. And that's why. I got bottle champagnes topic to canal for over and most places. You gotta shake it up a bit to do that and this has less pressure less intensity that kind because that really those little bubbles under pressure really make a difference on your palate list that this is more in line with maybe american bubbles. Which don't miss fears intense. But no less tough flavor that this kind of you know. I didn't think about it. It's got it makes you wanna drink it. Which i think is great. Things should be on sale for anywhere between fifteen and twenty with the holiday sales coming on. You could probably find some bargains here and there but it's a classic charles. Charles i meant Gerard retread they're like wine conglomerate group they they control the whole bunch of different chateau's and domains up in france and is one of their wines. They make really good. Wine is very good even though it has the mousse got a history goes back to the fifteen hundreds and pantaloon fifteen hundred. I mean this wine isn't from fifteen hundreds or anything and thomas. Jefferson didn't drink this wine. It's kind of like a shoutout to that. And it's from the same soils that the vineyards planet john in the same techniques. They helped found champagne caused the method they make. The wine is actually call the traditional nothing but they call the shopping. Lob the champagne. And it's not really it's affected it but they didn't make it. They're the ones that came up with. So there's a church for them. This fragile bubbles with history. Got american history because thomas jefferson their tastes. Great that's super expensive. Good ten to twelve fifteen up. Some fresh is just took another sip. And that's that great tasting bottle of bubbles from france girard schranz domenici amuse too rosy grew. Thomas jefferson and. That's it for me.

"I'm a little bias. Have been here for a while. But i think we have what you'll get on any cardiology. We'll get a phenomenal training. We have a very flexible program. Our third years basically whatever you want to make it. i think that's a really appealing aspect in pre. Might be able to speak to that marsh she in the thick of it now but i think the biggest selling point at thomas jefferson as a whole especially or cardiology program. Or just the people who are here. It's an amazing group of fellows. It's fun to hang out with them all the time. They're super supportive. They teach constantly. It's just a great group and to any of the folks who interviewed with us this year. I think we have to apologize for turning all of our virtual happy hours into just fellows talking to each other because we really just like being around each other just talking about our lives. I have one hundred percent agree with everything that's been said so far. I met thank you so much for having us on this podcast. It's been such a wonderful experience to discuss this case with you and learn so much just from this discussion in terms of why cardiology. It's so hard to describe. Why you picking a specialty. But i feel like that's almost a visceral reaction. Just love the heart. It's the best organ in the body. Within the field of cardiology there so much physiology that i find super interesting and i just liked the. There's so many different avenues. You can take in terms of career direction within cardiology if you like imaging echo there see amar their ct. If you like critical care. Cardiology patients come in very sick and of critical care is not your thing. We need people on the preventative side as well doing research to further the field as well so i just like that. There's so many different ways. You can get involved in cardiology so for me. I think that's what makes my heart flutter about cardiology as far as why jefferson. I am not quite in the same boat as these guys. I did go to medical school. Jefferson i left for a few years of residency and missed it so much. I came back. I know everybody always says that the people are what make the program. But i have to say that the people jefferson really made it such a wonderful place to train moco fellows so supportive beer always looking out for each other if people need coverage for call or anything like that people are always willing to step up and help out and then the attending are so approachable and really do like teaching i agreed with what incentive for that all of the attending are more than willing to sit down with you one to one they to hear from you and prefer to hear from you if you're having any issues through your training or if you have any questions and also in philadelphia which is one of the greatest city in the world. I believe so. It's really a wonderful place to train. You guys are just amazing so incredible. Have you on and dan binders messaging me right now. He sends his love his regards. He's modeling good.

"Greater Ella que si r W and Steve you take is finally today a history lesson. It seems like you can't go on hour during the day without hearing calls for racial justice, hearing the names of black Americans killed or brutalized at the hands of police. Add to that a president who Stokes the flames on the regular the most recent example, last night's presidential debate. We are a nation with a history deeply rooted in its original sin and who's ugly remnants to this day drive the news cycle. So let's take a moment to remember a Trailblazer here in California, who against crazy odds fought and won in an effort to make a difference. I was looking at this piece the other day, the California Sun about a man named Frederick Roberts. He was the first black American to serve in the California legislature. In 1918 more than 100. Years ago, he ran for State Assembly, and even during a time of deep hostility for black people, he won He served for four terms in the assembly and became known as the dean there for his decorum and bipartisanship. In his family lineage alone. Roberts exemplified a complicated America. Yet he also serves as an example of someone who moved the needle in a positive direction. For all black Americans. Susan Anderson is history curator at the California African American Museum here in Los Angeles. And she's with us right now. Hi, Susan. Hi, Frederick Roberts had quite the family history, right. Can you explain that? Well. His name was Fredrik Madison. Roberts and his middle name. Madison was taken from his grandfather, who was the son of Thomas Jefferson and selling him ING the Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings have hundreds of descendants that are still around throughout the United States. And Frederick Roberts family also eyes still around in California and other parts of the West. 1918 was a tough time. Obviously there was another pandemic. Ah flu pandemic a war that had enveloped much of the world it was wrapping up by 1918. What was his campaign like Susan and it at a time in America that was not only systemically but but overtly racist. Well, I think that it's important to look at Ah, hidden history of California and African Americans who have been in California since before the gold rush. Frederick Roberts was AH, leader in the community. He published a newspaper the New Age. He inherited a mortuary business that his father and some business partners established in in Los Angeles. Hey, was better off than most residents, no matter what their color Wass in Los Angeles, and he had great standing He ran in a district that was majority white, he was able to build probably the first multi ethnic political coalition. In Los Angeles history by putting together white and black Republicans, Progressive Party members and others who brought him to victory in that first assembly race in 1918. Of course, the Republicans and Democrats are a little different today than they were in 1918. But you could say that Roberts well, Roberts was what people called the Lincoln Republican and from the time the Republican Party was founded as a party that opposed the expansion of slavery outside of the South African Americans gave their political loyalty and their vote in a majority to the Republican Party. That, of course, changed. As the Republican Party change and is the Democratic Party changed in the 20th century and is a matter of fact, Roberts was finally beaten in during the height of the Depression by a young Black politician Augustus Hawkins, who put together a kind of new Deal New Democratic coalition to beat Roberts, who remained a Republican through his death in in 1952. He served four terms, though, before he was defeated. What was the rest of his life? Like You said he remained a Republican. Well. He was a crusader against lynching. He authored legislation that made school textbooks more available to public school students. He helped update the states civil rights laws he helped found the Los Angeles branch of the C P He was on the board of the Y W. C. A. He was a trustee at first a M E church. His family was culturally active. His wife, Pearl, Heinz, who was from Oakland, and to Larry County, was a classical. Pianist and a music teacher. And they I think, looking at their family life, the business life and his civic life. That it was. It was a very, very full existence. His his contributions to the community were were manifold.

"We're talking about Thomas Jefferson and John Adams in what great ideas they had back then which apply today I know right now when you're hearing all this in the media as in trump getting active about this you're having China retaliate you have the fed talking and sweat as a matter of fact I think it's fastening right now what's going on with the fed I mean think about this the fed in a way is encouraging you and me and business owners to take risk me think about that they're talking about lowering rates more to keep this train going what does that do that that encourages you to keep invested stand the stock market and that may or may not be a good thing for you right now in Iran's different so that's how they're supposed to do and right now really it's about policy and the fed can't control policy that's politics so you've got a very interesting dynamic setting up right now and that's why the fed right now is divided I mean there are fifty fifty right now that there we don't know which direction they're going to go and that's what's so fascinating and what does it mean to your money because no one wants to make a bad decision we've all felt that we had those two thousand happen we had two thousand eight happened that was painful remember that go back and look at those returns you were saying negative thirty eight percent negative forty two percent those are painful and sometimes you don't want to know because you don't have time to go get a PhD in economics or finance I understand that and so if there's one thing we know is that people just want to be heard they want to plan they can understand that sound familiar to you that's why this episode texture assets is looking at the sage advice of the founding fathers this is what we do for our clients at the liberty group it's so important to education that's what Mr Adams talked about slice segments to get educated about your finances so now it's time for one of our fan favorite parts of the show our they say a segment where you Sir are you kidding where we debunk common miss half truths and sometimes just bad advice so here's one that they say can you give me an example of what you're talking about that the most powerful ally that investor has is the law of compound interest have you heard that before so what say you is this just a gimmick investment companies used to keep your money in their pockets what do you think well actually it's just good old fashioned sound math what am I talking about one of our founding fathers in particular had a lot to say about the magic of compounding I'm gonna call Mr hundred dollar bill man who I'm talking about said this quote remember that money is of a prolific generating nature money can be get money and its offspring can be get more and so on five shillings turned is six turned again to seven and three pence and so till it becomes a hundred pound the more there is of it the more it produces every turning so that the profits rise quicker and quicker end quote who said that that's right Ben Franklin Mr hundred dollar bill and this came from his advice to a young tradesmen written by an old tradesmen in seventeen forty eight sold ban was around for awhile quite a smart guy in here is talking about compound interest or what is compound interest well there are two ways to accrue interest when you invest you have simple interest and you have compound interest Mister Frank was talking about compound interest simple interest is this when you're an interest only on your principal so if you had a thousand dollars invested at the bank saying you're earning five percent which you're not earning at the bank right now we could talk about that if you'd like to know where to get five percent anyway you're gonna earn fifty dollars a year on your thousand dollars here's how compound interest works the interest on your account compound so let's say you had a five thousand dollar retirement account earning seven percent interest each year the first year you're gonna earned three hundred and fifty dollars in interest which brings your total to five thousand three hundred and fifty dollars the following year interest is calculated based on this is important on the five thousand three hundred fifty dollar total not the original five thousand that's called compounding interest so in the second year you're gonna earn three hundred and seventy four dollars in interest and now your total grows to five.

"It's as constitution. And it's not just any first printing as you can see in the right hand there. This is Benjamin Franklin's copy of the constitution. And we are the repository of Franklin's papers. We have over seventy percent of Franklin's correspondents in our vault, and this I always like to show because this is what you might call an original interpretation of the constitution. The next item. Here's Franklin founded us in seventeen forty three, but it was really another founder of the United States who also helped create the American society in the early Republic, and that was Thomas Jefferson Jefferson served as president of the American philosophical society for about seventeen years. He was president of the APS while also vice president and president of the United States of America. When you're looking at here is the document that is in Jefferson's hand from seventeen ninety three while he's in Philadelphia. And what it is. It's the proposal of a Frenchman who had come to North America to explore the floor and fauna that inhabited the eastern seaboard and by seventeen ninety three he of conducted done all the research. He thought he could do. And now he wanted to explore the interior of North America. And so he was in Philadelphia, and he approached Jefferson with this idea, he said, I want to travel all the way to the Pacific Ocean to be the first person to cross the continent and to observe all these things that we don't know about in the interior of North America in Jefferson said this is a great idea. And I know just how to raise funds for it. Let me go to the American philosophical society and get the members to donate money. And so this is in Jefferson's hand. And he went to all the members of the APS who happened to be in Philadelphia. And since this is when the capital was in Philadelphia everybody who was anybody was in Philadelphia. I'm thinking seeing some of the donors for this expedition were on the top left. George Washington giving one hundred pounds a hundred dollars are usually work before the revolution pounds. Sometimes John Adams gave twenty then you have Thomas Jefferson there in the middle. And Jefferson is sandwiched by Henry Knox, a member of the society. Cincinnati Alexander Hamilton, another member and then James, Madison. So this is also believed to be the only document that holds the first four president signatures on it. And even more interesting about the story of this document is it was rediscovered if I guess you could say in the nineteen sixties by an intern who's going through an old volts in the APS during renovations and found a scroll rolled up with red ribbon on it. And he brought to the librarian's desk. An open it up and realized they had a national treasure on his hand. I also like to point out that this was a bipartisan effort. The desire to explore to support science was a bipartisan effort bringing together both the Jeffersonians federalists at this moment. Here's another one of our treasures, another jeffersonian document. Just like we have the constitution and Franklin's copy. We also have Thomas Jefferson's final draft of the declaration of independence. He said one copy to congress, and then he sent a few others to some of his friends. This one was sent to Richard Henry Lee, a Virginian Lee had proposed the vote for independence, and then had to return to Regina. In Jefferson sent this to his friend to say, this is the result of what your proposal. The proposal led to and I always like to talk about the changes that happened from Jefferson's original draft, and then the one after congress got their hands on it. And Jefferson always thought the congress ruined adulterated, the the meeting of his document, something we all may sympathize with. The original phrase word surrounding this very famous phrase. They are endowed by their creator with inherent rights that among these are life liberty in the pursuit of happiness was changed. They struck inherent and changed it to certain unalienable rights, and if you think about that change inherent rights could be interpreted to apply to everybody, including the enslaved. And that was obviously a charge word in that period. So they instead of having this universal more natural rights concept. Congress limited these rights described it, certainly a certain only a certain unalienable rights. So a very significant change..

And then there's Thomas Jefferson. He the the actors were great. I mean, they really work on your talking Broadway. I mean, we were talking about this before we went on the air. I the talent that's on Broadway. Just blows me away. I've never seen a performance there. That hasn't been so far and above. Bye bye birdie in twelfth grade. We do we wait low with some of the actors are really in the playbill about their background. And it said that they like the guy who played George Washington. I don't think he normally played that role. But he was a fill in for that at all the rule he fills in for any role is need, and he was great voice booming. And can you imagine memorizing the whole play? So this guy could step into any role. I mean, that's that's what blows me away every one of them not only has a role on stage. But as they leave the move around they're taking things off stage and bring like a your crew would know between Saint, but they're doing it very nicely and very all choreographed. It's all part of the choreography. Exactly. So well done that we saw a beautiful a few years ago with the Carole king musical about her life and same thing. They had the stage set up, and it was more modern stage that they would pull the different pieces of the different props the desks or whatever, and they would they would disappear off to the side on their own come on stage. But, but you gotta know when that's happening here you're going to be tripping over things exactly that never happened any of the actors. They all knew exactly where they were there. Dancing to swear removing something back in getting in. Oh, yeah. And then my wife bought a bag of Eminem's there. And I gave her I hit some my it's one. So I sit here.
