"trotsky" Discussed on Revolutions

"As his mind returned to this place, one face stood out clearer than any other, one voice rose above the rest, one pen would not stop scribbling. Trotsky. The stepson daddy like best. The man whose intellectual arrogance rankled twice as hard because his intellectual superiority could not be denied. Trotsky, who embodied a totally legitimate communist alternative to Stalin. Whose claim to being Stalin's true heir was distressingly plausible. Trotsky had been a world famous political celebrity, back when Stalin was an anonymous functionary. It's safe to say that Trotsky had lived rent free in Stalin's head for 20 years, and time had only increased Stalin's obsession, his fear and his hatred of Trotsky. And it's why Trotsky's name will be everywhere in 1936, 1937 and 1938. Every confession would include links to Trotsky. I met with Trotsky. I corresponded with Trotsky. I'm a member of a group led by Trotsky. Trotsky, Trotsky, Trotsky. It would always come back to Trotsky. Now as with all of Stalin's paranoia, he was not wholly unjustified. All those people, he had isolated and ditched in the Politburo quadrille, plus anyone associated with the old workers opposition or the left opposition or the united opposition or the right deviationists, all those guys had networks of Friends, allies, and supporters who had been pushed out into the political wilderness, where they nurse deep and bitter resentments and plotted their comeback. All of them fully intended their time in the wilderness to be merely temporary, and when they staged their great comeback, it would be to fulfill the dying words of Lenin, get rid of Stalin. In the fall of 1932 the secret police uncovered a couple of long documents written by an old Bolshevik named Martine, the first was called an appeal to all members of the all union Communist Party, and the other was a 200 page booklet called Stalin and the crisis of the proletarian dictatorship. Rutan, who had been an ally of the right, called for an end to force collectivization, the slowing of industrialization and the reinstatement of all exile party members, including Trotsky. The appeal provocatively called Stalin the grave digger of the revolution and the evil genius of the Russian Revolution, and stated bluntly Stalin, must be removed by force. So though Stalin's imagination was a fever swamp of paranoia, it's not like he was wrong that lots of people would love to see him overthrown, tossed in prison, or executed. These threatening anti Stalin tracks enjoyed wide circulation among all flavors of the opposition, and when the author was identified reutin himself was arrested and sentenced to ten years in prison. But the most troubling thing of all was not that somebody had written all this, but how many people had read it, and how many people chose not to report it. Stalin's natural paranoia further grew into unnatural proportions in December 1934 when he was dealt a sudden blow. Now if you will recall when zenobia was ousted from all his party positions in 1926, leadership of the Communist Party in Leningrad was handed to a guy called Sergei kirov..

"trotsky" Discussed on Revolutions

"I had covered the Chinese revolution, we'd probably be in some episode in the early to mid period, say, episode 876 or something. Where the nationalist Kuomintang party has formed a united front with leftist elements, like the small Chinese Communist Party. Stalin was all for this united front, and he used his control of the common turn to push the line on his Chinese comrades. Stalin confidently said they would squeeze the Chinese bourgeoisie like a lemon and then discard them. And he believed this is how it was going to go right up until the moment. It didn't. Conflicts in the KMT between left and right, led general Chiang Kai-shek to affect a purge of leftists and communists, culminating with the Shanghai massacre of April 1927, which saw right-wing forces brutally attack workers, labor unionists and communists in Shanghai, with a death toll numbering in the thousands. It's often pointed to as the beginning of the Chinese Civil War. International communism was scandalized by the affair, and Trotsky zinoviev and the rest of the opposition were appalled by the news. But they were even more eager to fix the blame for the massacre squarely on Stalin, who had effectively led the Chinese communist to the slaughter by constantly recommending passive obedience to the KMT. Trotsky was now able to gather 84 prominent Russian communists to draft a declaration of opposition to a litany of regime policies. Co signed by another 300 prominent members of the party. He also went and appealed to the common turn to come adjudicate their complaints against the leaders of the Russian Communist Party. Adjudicating such disputes had always been one of the common turns functions. But it had only ever been used for the small satellite parties, not the Russian mothership. But it looked like the beginning of the opposition's comeback, and so Stalin moved quickly to quash it. Any one who signed on to this most recent declaration found themselves reassigned to new posts, often positions abroad that took them out of Russia entirely. For example, was appointed ambassador to Italy, where he would have to endure whatever humiliations, Mussolini dreamed up for him. One popular opposition member was sent to a post often manchuria. But when he departed, an impromptu gathering of thousands saw him off at the station. And this seemed to signal that the fight may be moving out into the street. Fearing that Trotsky and zinoviev would use their positions on the central committee to reveal damning details about the business in China. Stalin convened a party tribunal in July 1927 to expel them from the central committee. The charges were first Trotsky's appeal to the common turn, and then second, that impromptu gathering at the train station. Trotsky easily fended off the charges saying on the one hand, he had been following rules agreed to by everyone when he appealed to the common turn, and as for the incident at the train station, the Politburo itself said these reassignments were totally routine, and there was nothing untoward about any of it. And so having a bunch of people come gather to see off someone who the Politburo continued to maintain was a good comrade. How could that be considered an unauthorized act of opposition? At this meeting, Trotsky also opened up an attack that helped bring the revolutions podcast full circle. Everyone was well versed in the French Revolution. And they all believed that different moments, characters, and movements from the French Revolution were effectively archetypes for all revolutions..

"And everyone else was wrong. Within days of Trotsky's letter, another letter followed. Now this one was not technically signed by Trotsky, but his fingerprints are all over it. This is the so called declaration of the 46, which was signed by, you guessed it, 46 members of the Communist Party, who critiqued the Politburo and the central committee. The declaration opened with an absolute broadside saying the economic and financial crisis beginning at the end of July this year with all the political consequences flowing from it, including those within the party, has mercilessly revealed the inadequacy of the party leadership, both in the economic realm and especially in the area of inner party relations. They then proceeded to attack the Politburo on two fronts. First, picking up the banner of the angry workers, the declaration attacked the industrial policy of the NEP, saying it was insufficiently committed to communist principles. What Russia needed was not markets and bosses, but more rational planning. But second, echoing Trotsky's letter, they attacked the central committee for allowing one small faction to dominate all offices and appointments, and then declare themselves immune from criticism in the name of party unity. They said, if the situation which has developed is not radically changed in the very near future, the economic crisis in Soviet Russia and the crisis of the fractional dictatorship within the party will strike heavy blows to the workers dictatorship in Russia and to the Russian Communist Party. With such a burden on its shoulders, the dictatorship of the proletariat in Russia, and its leader, the Russian Communist Party, can not enter the field of the impending new international shocks in any other way than with the perspective of failure, along with the entire front of proletarian struggle. The authors of the declaration of the 46 cleverly tried to turn the question of factionalism back around on the Politburo. Saying, you are actually the ones engaging in factionalism, not us. But this cleverness was no match for the stark reality of the party rules they had all proof back at the tenth party Congress. The central committee had total discretion to determine what counted as unauthorized factionalism and what did not. The central committee was controlled by the Politburo, which was in turn now controlled by the troika. At a session of the central committee at the end of October, which was packed by Stalin with allies. Trotsky and the other 46 were all denounced for their heretical factionalism. The ban on factions and the rules enforcing it would be unchanged and upheld. Forever after this would be the method of purging internal enemies, of whoever happened to control the Politburo. But the troika was not yet a totally monolithic force, and Trotsky, the 46 and others who found themselves on the wrong side of the troika, would continue to try to dislodge them. We'll talk more about this next week when we discuss the rise and fall of the so called left opposition. As this was all playing out, Moscow got heavy news from abroad..

Author Deborah Cohen Describes the 'Big Get' Interviews of the 1930s

"The journalists in your book are interviewing the most important political figures of their day. Hitler Mussolini Franco Trotsky, Gandhi, Churchill, FDR. Could you describe some of these encounters and also, how important were these interviews? For example, would this be as high profile as if Anderson Cooper, Chris Wallace, were interviewing Vladimir Putin right now in the day of this recording his early April as that Russian Ukrainian war is still going on, or would it be more of a puff piece? Could you talk about these encounters with these world leaders? These are the analogy that you draw as exactly right. These are the big guts of their time. And in part, the reason why these interviews are so significant in this analogy with Putin brings this is that there's a sense that these are the figures who are determining history. So history is being made by them and also through them. So actually getting to sit down with them allows a reporter a kind of privileged access into the psychology and to the intellectual thought process, you know, it's not the same, you know, you could sit down with my career or Ramsay MacDonald or any number of kind of normal political leaders. And you've got, you know, some of their spend, you got maybe a little bit of a glimpse, but fundamentally you didn't think that their personality was making history. On the other hand, once you're dealing with a Trotsky or a Mussolini or a Hitler or Stalin or a Putin, it's certainly the case that they are outsized figures who is Jimmy shin puts in our managing to channel the tide of history, quite literally. So how important these are and what you get from them really does depend upon who you're talking

The Four Biggest American Media Celebrities of the 1930s

"In the 1930s, the biggest American media celebrities were four foreign correspondents, Dorothy Thompson, John Gunther, HR knickerbocker, and Vincent Shea. They were household names in their day, and just as famous as their novel writing lost generation counterparts, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. These reporters helped shape what Americans knew about the world between the two world wars by landing exclusive interviews with the most important political figures of their day, including Hitler, Mussolini and Franco, as well as Trotsky, Gandhi, nehru, Churchill and FDR. But they also went beyond state press releases and listened closely to the dissidents in Europe and heard alarming reports of violence against anyone who opposed these authoritarian regimes. The reporting made waves at home and abroad. HR knickerbocker was the only foreign reporter whose dispatches Mussolini bothered to read. Joseph gobel is called knickerbocker in international liar and counterfeiter. John Guthrie shot to fame, but the book inside Europe published in 1936, arguing that, quote, unresolved personal conflicts in the lives of various European politicians may contribute to the collapse of our civilization. In the face of increasing violence in Europe, these reporters had to decide whether they would remain on the sidelines or advocate for their readers to respond. They were the readers of the dictators wouldn't be satisfied with their territories they conquered, and the objected to the policies of appeasement and predicted the coming of the Second World War. Putting together the stories they covered, the Italian invasion of Ethiopia in 1935, the Spanish Civil War broke out the next year, the German annexation of Austria and the karma book Czechoslovakia, and made very accurate judgments about what would come next.

"With his practically dying breath, comrade Lennon was saying get rid of Stalin. But the thing is, and here's where I'm following cotton. It's very likely Lennon didn't say any of this, and that the little click of secretaries around him cook these remarks up themselves, with croup scia as the most likely mastermind. She herself was staring down life without Lenin, and her own antagonistic relationship with Stalin may have led her to want to knock him down a peg or two. Perhaps in favor of Trotsky, perhaps synovia, perhaps bukharan. Anyone but Stalin. But to be clear, this is all conjecture based on the notable lack of evidence confirming that these notes were dictated when and where and by whom they were alleged to have been dictated. But whether they were actually Lenin's words or not, they were taken at the time and afterwards to be Lenin's words. And they caused an enormous amount of turmoil inside the inner party. Inside that upper stratum that Lenin himself was so concerned might be destroyed by personality conflicts that would, in turn, destroy the entire revolution. Next week, we will reach the final chapter of Lenin's life and the final chapter of our highly detailed accounting of the Russian Revolution. Because I am going to use that chapter to mark the end of the revolutionary age, and the beginning of simply the early history of the USSR. The revolutionary work was of course not over, and there will be three more additional episodes that take us through the great purges in the 1930s. But the revolution would now be directed from above rather than from below. It would be a political economic and cultural revolution, waged by a government instead of against a government. Lenin had managed to live long enough to see his revolution come to pass. And after many decades of relentless work, it is time to extinguish his revolutionary.

Vlad tidings: demonstrations across Russia

"On saturday tens of thousands of russians took to the streets in more than a hundred towns and cities across the country. In support of jailed kremlin critic. Alexey navalny protesters chanted. Putin is a thief as well as freedom to navalny chilling videos emerged police beating and kicking demonstrators. The response was not one about an out brutality. More than three thousand arrests were made at. Even mr navalny's wife was briefly. Detained the demonstrations were sparked mr navalny's arrest on spurious charges. Just as soon as he returned from germany last week but protesters were also fired up by to our video narrated by mr navalny and released a day later. Throw it saw my viceroy was thirty. Wrestling depicts a lavish palace. On the black sea. Allegedly built for president vladimir putin and funded with dodgy. Money allegations the kremlin dismissed as just rumor mr putin remains in a tough spot with disquiet spreading and his loudest critic making just as much trouble while in jail as he did out of it. This was not my first protest in moscow in quite a few the past few years are cody. Trotsky is russia editor in moscow. I would say that. Fear was one of caution pretty much on both sides the fact that people have braved the streets brave. The police cordons came out. Despite enormous intimidation campaign was waged. By the kremlin in the preceding days is in itself extraordinary russia's much more repressive state today than it was even a few years ago. The people who were out in the street was certainly not radicals as abba in moscow protests. That was scary. Moments police charging but on the whole the police behavior some restraint and its actions were nowhere on the level of violence and brutality which we saw a few months ago in neighboring belarus. There was no special measures with no tear. Gas rubber bullets so it was definitely tense. But i didn't see many of the accesses and when we spoke to protesters what were they saying. Why were they out. The protesters came from the social strata and had different possibly political beliefs. What brought them out onto the street. Were few things. There was a sense of injustice over the arrest of alexei novel name who was arrested at possible control on the rival at airport and is now facing three and a half years in jail for breaking parole rules on a previous suspended sentence and the reason he broke his parole rules. That didn't comfortable to the police was just happened to be recovering from novichok nerve agent poisoning in germany. So people obvious that as an injustice the other big catalyst for the protest was the release of alexander violence extraordinary two hour long documentary film about allegedly putin secret palace in the black sea coast which was bill deem volumes cronies at a cost of one point three billion dollars. It's your absolutely archetypal. James bond villains had with all the trimmings and the golden toilet brushes that made a big impact. It clocked over eighty million views on youtube. An underlying over that was just general sense of tidiness of putin's regime tiredness of course lack of economic growth it was a very broad protests. And that's what made say interesting. You know lots of people came out for the first time. And so do you think that. That broad dissent a across demographics. On a lot of first-time protesters will will make any difference to to. What the kremlin actually does. It's not going to make any difference. In the short term the kremlin has already said. It's not going to pay attention. Admittedly fiscal putin spokesman said well. We think it was a very small protests. Many more people vote for vladimir putin. That was ironic. Given that alexander was barred from the election in which people voted for vladimir putin the reason the numbers were kept down walls because of enormous intimidation campaigns parents schoolchildren were told to keep their kids at home. Students were threatened with expulsion employs. The employees they'd risk dismissal if they would join the protest et cetera et cetera. The kremlin is not going to release alexei navalny overnight but only himself and he's associates of said. This is not an immediate process. This is a long haul to re coined the famous phrase by me. He'll gorbachev in the late eighties. The process started so. Do you think that the detention of of mr navalny and the release of this video and all of those us have really changed things. Is this a turning point. They do and this change effects vladimir putin's legitimacy which is already being Waning and we. We've seen that in in the raising figures. But this film and alexander. Violence return to russia is a massive blow to putin's legitimacy and to the attitudes and perceptions of putin in the broad russian public as one commentator set to me you know two years ago people had to explain why they oppose putin today they have to justify why they support him. And how has the international community responded to to this protest mood and these protests i think so far west leaders have been watching very carefully. What's happening in russia. has been rhetorical outrage. At least both from angela merkel Sees this as a slap in her face because nobody was in germany under her protection also been marketed. Different reaction from washington. I think we will see a very different response. From biden's administration compared to trump's acquiescence to putin's action has been called for tax sanctions including from poland. A you member states the foreign ministers to discuss next steps. But i think there is also worry amongst western countries and particularly among russian neighbors and countries like the baltic states and poland that events in russia will have repercussions outside russian borders and this north unfounded fears because in two thousand fourteen two years after big protests swept russia features berg and other big cities the kremlin annexed crimea and stuff the war in ukraine in order to change the narrative and dominate political agenda so lot of russia neighbors worried that repression at home and protests against the kremlin will lead to aggression.

"News calm available anywhere on our I heart radio app Now number one for podcasting news radio. Tell you f l A and I heart radio station. Well, as you heard, we still aren't totally out of a day yet as we've still have a lot of flooding and some roads closed and everything, so that's something that Keep in mind here, but Meanwhile, things will slowly get back to normal. Surely by the weekend, but Data is now on shore and moving away and soon it'll be reduced to just a big storm, and that's pretty much it and we got today in history for November, 12th. It was in 1927 on November 12th that Leon Trotsky is expelled from the Soviet Communist Party, leaving Joseph Stalin in disputed control The Soviet Union and it only got better from there, right? Oh, yeah. Just got better and better. 1928 the SS vest. Tress sinks about 200 miles off Hampton Roads, Virginia. Killing at least 110 passengers, mostly women and Children, who die after the vessel is abandoned. 1936 in California, The San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge opens a traffic That's the other one along with the Golden Gate Bridge. 1942 World War two. The Naval battle of Guadalcanal between Japanese and American forces begins near bottle come out Canal the battle last for three days and ended with an American victory. 1969 the Vietnam War. The independent investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, breaks the story of the Mi Lai massacre. It was God of an embarrassment for our troops, who Killed some women and Children unnecessarily at that point. 1971 of Vietnam War is part of Vietnamization President Richard Nixon set February 1st 1972 as the deadline for the removal of another 45,000 American troops. From the Vietnam 1979 the Iran hostage crisis. In response to the hostage situation in Tehran, U. S President Jimmy Carter ordered a halt to all petroleum imports. In the U. S. From Iran. There are 44 hostages on ink. 1997 Rumsey Yussef has found guilty of masterminding the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. I mean, most of us think of 9 11 when the world trade centers Were taken down by airplanes by Terrorists. But this was in 97 prior to that, four years before that, when he blew up Part of the trade center. You have to think inside and you have to think that was a lower levels. I believe you have to think that they use that as a learning, you know, tool to what they did on in 2001 on September, 11 said. We couldn't take it down like this, so we'll try something else. Horrible. That's what happened. And in 2001 in New York City, American Airlines Flight 5 87 and Airbus A 300 route to the Dominican Republic crashed minutes after takeoff from John F. Kennedy International Airport. Killing all 260 onboard and five on the ground. And I remember that very tragic day as well. And that's our Today in history for November, 12th So let me toss that away and get rid of it here. What was the other thing? The Well, I'm just looking at all the Things, people. A lot of people still think that President Trump has a chance to Still pull a victory out here. And I'm reading this headline here. President Trump leading an electoral college with more paths to victory than Biden. And that's not true. He's not leading in the electoral college right now. But this story goes through all the states, Alaska. He'll probably carry that. But that's only two votes. There's a big difference between wanting something to happen. It actually happening, and I understand a lot of listeners You want. President Trump to be reelected, but there's a big difference in that actually happened there. A lot of people in 2016 that were like no Hillary Clinton will be the president. That's gonna happen. She wasn't going to be the president this how our elections are run and they're gonna have to investigate the fraud and from what I'm seeing. It's going to be very, very hard to overturn this election, and President Trump To be in the White House for four more years. Many states and it will take the courts to do it, and that's going to take a long time. And it's Not much of a chance of him being able to overturn that many and people are listening going. You're not pushing for Trump. No, it's not about that. It has nothing. I'm being realistic. Don't give up. Don't know. Realistic. Well, we're ready to go. We're asking to become a Socialist Marxist country and we're going to get our wish. The good thing is Republicans. You're probably going to maintain control of the Senate, and that's key to this. It's 8 28 on a M Tampa Bay. Your morning cup of Sean. This is a shot, and any morning minute way had won Election day and we figure out a way that we have one.

"Trotsky for putting that together is the White Sox win yesterday. There they are Playoff team as you hear, Jason, but I say it right there. And Adam. You know, the one thing that kind of look at it is this is our first pitch tonight. And the key here is. Did you see the column on MLB dot com From Scott Merkin today, the White Sox Want the bigger goal after clinch and the whole conversation about this team and where they're supposed to be a CZ faras. They're timeline because it's young talent coming together, playing well in this season, a little bit unexpectedly to this point. We all know that they are a talented group. And this is the group of young players that someday will grow together to be a powerful team in the American League, and I kind of look at this and I've looked at this season this way the entire time. Is. Why not take advantage of this situation that's presented itself with this shortened schedule with the great play they brought to the table with the starting pitching. That's giving you the third best Yara and the ninth best whip in all baseball. You have a bullpen that's giving you top 10 bullpen statistics as well and the lineup these young players are hitting. They're mashing foryou. So to me, you can talk about the timelines. I appreciate. That big article today from Scott Merkin on MLB dot com isn't How is this team going to manage instead? It's they're hungry, and they want more. And getting into the playoffs is the first step. But guess what? There are more steps behind that one. And they are looking to do Maura than just get into the playoffs. To me. This is one of those things were if you're a White Sox fan This is a great sign you get into the playoffs. Right now. You're the best team in the American League. But let's get more. And I think that if you Look at the way this season was constructed Chris. It's like everybody's saying all with 60 games, people are hot. People are in slums. All that kind of stuff. Whatever. This is basically like you started the season, everybody at the same With same record at the end of July. We were playing the same amount of playoff. There's more teams, so you have to get through another round. There's not gonna be travel days. If anything this year is tougher. Because of all of the Andi. I'll say this. No matter who wins the World Series. I don't care who wins, you know, no matter which team wins the World Series. It's tougher this year. The protocols that baseball players have to deal with the Yes, they're getting paid lots of money, but everything that this team has deals every team around Major League baseball, you know, worrying about games not being played, You know that there's players. That are testing positive. There's games that have been canceled, playing doubleheaders playing seven inning doubleheaders, focusing on winning a game in seven innings as opposed to having those extra two innings dealing with everything surrounding Corona virus, not seeing your certain family members for certain friends that you would like to see, like all of us are dealing with right now. It's just a lot for people to deal with. Mentally and I feel like this is if there's going to be an ass tricks or anything like that. It should be because of everything that has gone into trying to put this playoff Run together for teams. You're not gonna have fans for home field advantage You're not gonna have you're going to be in a bubble. You know, we've seen teams in the MBA that are thriving in the bubble that may not have under normal circumstances. That might be the case for Major League baseball, but to see this young team and I'll go to a quote that wasn't said to reporters. It was. Jose Abreu said it after the game when he was talking to teammates and said, I finally made it. Jose Bray has been on this team. That's the seventh year on the team, and he's finally made the playoffs and for him to be an M v P candidate on a team that has to M V P candidates and being a leader for this team, When is down as they were in previous years, when he got to the team, and now to have it come to fruition that I'm rooting for nothing but the best for this team. Moving forward. I hope they win it all. I think they have everything to win it all. And I don't think that you should be saying Oh, well, maybe next year, you know, like this is still like, Let's all one way and the time you know the goal this year is the World Series. This team is good enough to win the World Series. No more. Can they keep this up? We'll see. This team is good enough to win the World Series right now. 3123323776. We'll talk baseball with you Like John In Evanston. You're on ESPN 1000. What's up, John? Hey, guys, You know, I'm gonna keep it short. I love the way Ricky has kept this team grounded this year. He's worked on on DH them just having fun going out playing ball playing hard getting used to playing together. He's been keeping you know things. Intact. The young pitchers and granddad really loved the pictures on this club. And he has come out, said the youthfulness on this team has made it fun for him again, which is big time and, Yeah, you know, Anderson bouncing back this year with the year he's having and And a brave you taking charge of their clubhouse this year. You know, you can see he's having fun, too. I think I don't think this team is worried about how far can we go? It? You know, game by game, boys. Let's just go out play. Do what we've been doing all year. Play hard, have fun and feel absolutely John appreciate the phone call 3123323776 so dull that that's what our first pitches about tonight is that this team, and it goes with what John just said. You know, take advantage of what's in front of you. And we've seen this now. Over the course of the last few champions. We've seen this Thea's Stroh's in 2017, the Cubs in 2016 the Dodgers over the course of the last five plus years, the Yankees last year. I know the Yankees and the Dodgers do spend With the Cubs in the Astros. More specifically, are two teams that had young talent come together, thrive together. Before their.

"Could you position installing start to feel it, but I think the timing was incredible because Lennon started I think he had three strokes, and you'd really had his first stroke and linens wafts started to speak out against Arslan. And installing phoned her and colder syphilitic whole a to. The phone. And Linen heard about this, and they basically said to him. Look if you do not apologize and make things clear. I think it's the end of the line between you and me and the next day he basically at the worst stroke, and died just off of it and I think stolen spent a bit of Tom. Making Shea squashed that discussion, it's famously been recorded that Stalin and crew Skyer who is linens? Wife were not best of friends, and she actually released a whole lot of linens letters, which purport to say that Stalin is not a great guys got bad manners to coast. He's too rough. He's vulgar. He's rude and that he shouldn't lead. But a lot of people say that she might have written these letters I think in the end they have lost and unfortunately. If you didn't have a good relationship with Stalin, you're dead and nothing gets. You ended up like that, so he took over then often linen, but it was by no means an easy job because he had to make alliances with some dodgy people, and then break those alliances later on ultimately with the goal of establishing himself at the center of things he was not interested in. You know a communal decision making body. He wanted to make the. You're one hundred percent. A dictators, what is the was and I think it was quite easy. Because Trotsky was looking at the mocks collective in the whole world, it started with sanctity supporters. Look, we're looking at. It decided union and say he got strong. Support Trotsky didn't get the support that he thought he would get him in Lenin's wife Tipper Party and try to go against Stalin. And that was the ultimate demise of Trotsky. He was sent into exile later on Stalin Sin Somebody to met him with. Another famous death but I do WANNA breeze quickly through the years before World War Two, because that's what's stunning, really came to aggregate immense power around himself, but he went through a number of crises I mean the one that's most well known as that feminine and the collectivization of farming where he murdered the cool lax and the great terror as it's cold also. Also, which was the execution of some seven hundred thousand people who we know about? There are many more that we don't know about.

"Good so many stories has yes I did a lot of ways we can go on this one a lot of the good the bad the dirty will go around the room Erica's Trotsky's informality today waddle is a broadcasting from home Eric me and dollar are here downtown first Midwest bank studio sharing a water bottle no we are not and we're not sharing tattoo needles either I all right give us so you're good my goodness I mentioned it earlier and I know that I I'm not I'm not going to you know this for a hundred percent agreement but I'm glad the NFL went about their business today I don't think anyone was put on a in a precarious situation nobody was I do I think that you could exercise the plan and the the incentive out there for social distancing nobody's getting on planes as far as I know to make these these meetings in and and sign these contracts so I understand that there are some folks out there that believe it's a touch callous when people are struggling that multi millionaire football players are actually going on with their lives and signing contracts but I think any degree of normalcy especially in the world of sports is a welcome change of pace for me individually yeah I was happy that it went through to I understand for everybody who you know thinks it it's weird and I get it but I do like a little bit of NFL news today my good we just talked about it too is I believe ESPN will come out with the last dance documentary I believe they will be a hero and all this I believe we will get programming I hopefully believe that we're gonna love it but we need it we need sports in our life I mean I already seen on SportsCenter while they're playing a lot of I'm in the state highlights from like past NCW tournaments and everything like that too and that's cool I mean but I need more content sports wise so that's my good and I hope hopefully will get it and it will be coming real soon what about you a dollar my good goes to every owner and person and a player that is decided to donate money or pay their employees through they shut down and however long people are going to be out of work for but I think he needs to we need to go a little bit further you know remember the people that are in the service industry yes the restaurants are close but they're still people there you know making the food and taking the food out to curbside service if you don't usually tip on pickups I know a lot of people don't tip on pick ups because they feel like no one delivering the food I'm going in to get it tip on pick ups because as those go to all these people these people are used to making less than minimum wage and they use tips as a way to supplement that that income so please think of those businesses it's not like a you have to stay in your home all the time you can order food you can order a national gift gift certificate for your favorite local restaurant absolute museum later to get them some income now like I have so many friends in this business of doll like that I just feel for I mean it has to happen but it comes at the expense of so many great people in the in in an area that I depend on is my entertainment is going out to great restaurants I don't like to go to the theater I like to go to a great dinner yeah and you can try their own it's probably cheaper now too because you don't pay for alcohol you don't have to pay you know you don't to pay as much for all that stuff you can just go and pick up try your restaurant you haven't tried go pick it up from there and see how it is so that's my good really good what's yours Eric my god is kind of all yours is Sophie's house like we need some sort of sports something to watch so yesterday the wife and I attempted to watch the full season two of Westworld because season three was premiere

was fusing it's there's a lot going on so like there's sometimes you have to pause and check the time line and and and figure out what's going on but we know not to do so what else is it I film season to to be a touch confusing as well it is I'll tell you this selfie with your current child situation and having a kids literally climbing on top of you probably not the best thing to watch because you there are times where like I was pausing I'm like okay well know where they go to bed you can watch it when they go to bed just make sure you're awakened yeah you cannot I will I'll pick up my phone

Medicaid that you meditate on Medicaid it's it's supposed I mean it's supposed to be great I think she's leaning towards that really I would say that you guys would more enjoy a game of thrones together do the very it's a very slow in a lot of dialogue like it's very well written up and it's a very well acted there's a reason Jon Hamm one you know was nominated for Emmys every time there's

Lady Hale, U.K. Supreme Court Judge, Brings Down the Hammer

"Some delighted that Catherine Bernard is back with US fool the follow up not Ruben introspectively hit two and we'll get views on the connection between Italy Supreme Court brexit everything so Katherine. We talked about this last week by the weekend. Pat Wasn't a total to surprise how the judgment went kind of smoke signals coming out. I think a lot of people were surprised was unanimous. I think I was surprised it was unanimous. We use surprised with hindsight. No it makes a lot of sense. It's unanimous for the reason that one strength unity strength to it avoids anyone on from being picked off. There's always been a fear about a repetition of Daily Mail's enemies at the people and three it says to the public that you can't say are judge is known remain a judge wise unknown labor supporter. It's very difficult to say that all eleven have have particular anti brexit views and therefore having a unanimous decision sends a considerable force so I'm GonNa put the counter human just for the the sake of it given the judgment was on what were called the fundamentals of democracy. That was a key part of what was in there. If you go eleven people together you wouldn't get eleven to agree on the fundamentals of democracy so I can see why for the reasons you say unanimity is a kind of strength but it could also look like a kind of contrivance is striking us in this case there have been four judgments to one way to the other so there is a division of opinion but in each case the judgment was unanimous so judges never have disagreed within a case of any disagreed between courts and herrings is it partly because in this case they had the full evidence and indeed. They had the full range. NJIT arguments on both sides and the government case was just blown out of the water. Would that be the other way to put it. I think it's an another way of delay suspect they really did want unanimous. Mus Pin if they could get there and actually that says a great deal about lady hails chairing of the discussion to try and get all eleven on board food with a judgment particular. Judgment of strength is really quite remarkable. It does push against the idea that people say we're going down the American Supreme Court because one thing I can guarantee on t is a supreme court judgement in which the phrase the fundamentals of democracy was used judgment would not be unanimous. I mean the idea of it would be absurd in the American case so this court is not therefore politicized like that court is they might be politicized in a different way but not like that and I agree but what I think what most lawyers if if pushed would say what are the fundamentals of democracy well we're told about parliamentary sovereignty and the various permutations of parliamentary sovereignty Trotsky late in the judgment the bit that is slightly new is the emphasis on accountability of the executive comment which has never been articulated in quite that way as a fundamental of democracy but frankly it is implicit in a system which has such a strong notion of parliamentary sovereignty that if parliament parliament is sovereign therefore the other main institution for it to work the executive must be accountable to somebody and the courts have said it's account could parliament and I think that's what's really striking. So how does the Haiku judgment when the other way now stand because I was looking back over some of the coverage of that and a phrase that was used quite lot was those those judges were reflecting the orthodoxy well. They must not be a New Jersey right this. This is the new orthodoxy within a couple of weeks. The orthodoxies talks. He's been turned on his head so we have to be slightly careful that because what the High Court said was this matter is not justifiable. They didn't really get involved. Goldensohn nuts and bolts of the grounds for review because they said it's not justiciable. Although I think they did say were to be justifiable. We're not sure that we would be able to say that. There wasn't a good reason it was quite cool phrase but of course what we've also had is a Scottish court decision where you have no witness statement from the Prime Minster Number Ten and I think this really did play very badly ultimately for the government's and something that the Supreme Court took very seriously because that also is something that was really striking in this judgment Lady Hale of them said we are saying that we were given no reason let alone in a good reason we were given no reason now watched enough of it to see well. That's not strictly true. They were given reasons. They treated those reasons as completely void I mean this is that they were saying that. Two hours spent telling us your reasons you might as well have just not been talking a tool. Where does that leave the government's case. What does it mean if they were given reasons than they described. Describe them as no reasons at all well. I think what's interesting and this is where the Supreme Court is quite subtle and treads very careful line because they didn't won't get into motive and they didn't want to look at the prime minister's motive for parochial parliament and they also wanted to try and keep the queen came out of it as much as possible so what they did instead was they focused on the effect of the peregrination and the effect of the probation was that parliament parliament the parliamentary committees didn't sit there was no scrutiny over for example operation yellowhammer and the consequences of a no deal brexit there would be no meeting the Liaison Committee where the Prime Minister Answers questions and so they focused on the effect of the probation and they contrast. It's appropriation with recess where these things carry on but with probation everything grinds to halt as one thing was struck me was this idea that parliament had been prevented from conducting its core business holding the government to account and embodying like its role as sovereign. I was thinking about the judgments well parliament did have the opportunity to do what I suppose. It's core function which would be to dissolve dissolve parliament and have an election or to replace with another and that's right it definitely had the opportunity to do so and it chose not to exercise that that for reasons entirely to do with concerns about brexit and there being no deal brexit before a general election and difficulties about installing some some sort of caretaker alternative executive the rest is the core business the scrutinizing legislation all these things they seem to me sort of obviously important but the idea that parliament was prevented from doing what is its core function seems to me a very big leap on the part of the Supreme Court had parliament the opposition parties been gunning for an election seeking to dissolve parliament seeking to do and then being thwarted by the radiation there. I think the case would to be much stronger. Alternatively had voted no confidence either. Being thwarted or following parliament was prorogued. That's right. That's why I say the fundamentals democracy that phrase really stood stood out for me and now I have some sympathy Christy saying which is some sane is not a lawyer as someone who's studied politics. This is the difference for a non lawyer. There's there's some quite contentious arguments to be had about. What is the core function and how it does work and then it also in the judgment says at this particular times it does say this is contextual. We're saying this because a really important decisions coming up on the thirty first so it wasn't nothing to do with Brexit and yet once you go down that road then you can say well. There are a lot of contingencies Ziesel play her. I mean we saw in our podcast last week. This is where political scientists come at this from a very different angle from from lawyers the Supreme Court had to tread careful path and they had to be careful not to go into the bigger political background including having an election so they looked at the power to Pirogue and and they looked at whether that power was essentially unlimited or limited and that's what courts do they're prepared to look at the limits at the power by looking at the limits the power they say well. Actually there are limits on this power. You can't use this power in a totally open into way they looked over the edge and saw the possibility ability of production being used by a prime minister to suspend parliament for months on end or to avoid having voted no confidence sorta avoid having a debate that they want to have and said okay that power if it was unlimited if it can't be subject to any judicial check could be used from constitution the Pepsi's and clearly this has not had a very clear rule legal rule for future perturbations. No prime minister is going to be able to do what Johnson did but can we read anything else into it so they must be relatively high probability that some big cases are coming back to the courts and ultimately Supreme Court in the next few weeks including possibly illegal challenges. Johnson is still in post and we get closer to the thirty first and the Ben Act kicks in he has to send a letter and he the dozen awesome twenty cents a in a way that is not straightforward. Is there anything that we can read from this judgment and is unanimity to the possibility of how the court might decide on those is cool brexit matters not least is it going to be able to hold the unanimity line once we get into the real politics of this yet pure speculation but what we do know is already a case yes which has been lodged in the Scottish court using this remedy that is unique to Scottish law to say that the court could if necessary sends the letter mandated by the Ben Burtt Act if the prime minister will not do so the prime minister's put some evidence into Scottish corpora evidence is at the moment confidential but it isn't a message courts will look some of these issues what we do know is. I think this judgment this in court judgement of yesterday makes makes it very difficult for the government just Perot again with a view to have appropriation which lasts all the way to the second or the fifth of November or the government will pirogue broke for speed queen speech have to be a matter of days but a much longer period of peregrination which is something that has been talked about. I think is now off the table so again if this was the US Supreme Court we would be reading the runes from both the numbers and the wording of the judgement about how this cool might decide on other a similarly contentious political constitutional matters so we're at the start of what might be a whole series of contentious judgments and confrontations confrontations through the courts. Do we have enough yet to be reading the rune in we don't. I mean so again. That's why unanimity is different from had it been eight three seven four. We would now be saying those four are going to be the ones who will side with the government on the next. Wouldn't we and we still some evidence of people talking about what about Lord would read lewd reads going to be the next president from court. He's been very cautious about allowing judicial review what is essentially political matters and yet he was part of the eleven so they get some cover both political and legal cover from being posted the eleven but it doesn't mean that in different factual circumstances slightly slightly different factual circumstances they might not break differently in Alaska total non lawyer question habit if you're on the the Heiko when the other way including very very senior the judges the master of the rolls is it embarrassing we had lawyers senior judges feel when they get really not just overruled steamrollered by the piss everyone's human and you don't like being reversed a new jetties say that but equally judges get reversed overturned some. MHM stage such a high profile that's true but on the other hand what the Supreme Court was presented with sort of very orthodox conservative with a small small-c approach taken by the High Court where churches say that political matters on your justiciable and on the other hand you've got the Scottish court not saying actually this is justifiable and definite attempt to stymied the role of parliament negree GIS approach to the parliament and therefore we got to do as something and so inevitably. There's going to be a winner in an loser either the High Court of England Wales or the Scottish court. We're going to be upset at a the very basic level and the Supreme Court obviously found much much much more sympathy with the judges of the Scottish score and could those judges say like the rest most of us.

A Review of 'It: Chapter 2'

"Today. We're discussing. Sometimes it comes back for you where it's more boring name it. Chapter Two starring Jessica chastain James mcevoy Bill Hater Isaiah Mustafa Jay Ryan James Ran Soon Andy Bear. Some of these people have to just be happy their names on a poster oester. I mean who the hell some of these guys the old spice guy because his name above the title and Bill Skarsgard as pennywise directed by a Andy Machete this is Arnie Coz now playing and the fun is just beginning Ed Stewart and this is the host who still insists he sees the ghost Jacob it aftermath aftermath wow as Stephen King Fan as somebody really into Stephen King around the time this came out of you. Remember dark tower came out right before this. I was actually buying a couple of Stephen King Trotsky to go on my bookshelf with all my Stephen King Books. They're made like a Jack torrens action figuring things and I'm like you know they don't make too much of this so I'll get a couple of these and put them up there. It exploded merchandising for every Stephen King thing. There's a hot wheels Christine. There are more pennywise figures that I can count what I'm not kidding. Wow Yeah so ooh many pennywise toys of all price points this has opened a floodgate on Stephen King that has never been opened before merchandising him to the Gen xers. I think so what does that mean. I mean we all know what merchandise meant and fanning the love of Star Wars. What would it mean to hold a bobblehead. Ah pennywise Ernie called GEN-X. You GotTa Buy Your Co.. POPs gets by stuff by toys by Chachis of stuff you like and Stephen King's. The big caught thing now so let's just how the market is. Is it selling yeah okay. I mean I didn't buy any of it. The moment you know what I liked about it when it was niche and there was like two things I loved it when every week. I'm getting an email this new pennywise doll for two hundred dollars. I'm like fuck it pennywise varian Syrian funk. Oh pops are there. Oh my God so many long tongue pennywise bloody pennywise smiling pennywise frowning penny wise spider pennywise okay this kind. It helps me understand why you were so into skarsgard. They've really been able to magnify what was a very small part of the film really wasn't in that many scenes and by my impression Russian he was only good in about half of them so how he has lived on in the minds of the viewer is through merchandise he made an impression he scarred us and and now two years later he's coming back to finish the job yeah and again. I'd equate to a Freddy Kruger. I'd think it's the closest thing we've had to a horror icon. In a long time and Freddie never had that much screen time it was people talking about Freddie and Robert Englund Cameo films. You know so and I think merchandising we've made every Jason we've made every Friday. Oh my God pennywise we have something new to sell but the highest grossing nightmare on Elm Street movie wouldn't begin to touch the gross of of this fill it goes well beyond the reach of a horror audience. I mean this. There were people in my neighborhood I walk my dog and churchgoing folk who I would never suspect suspect to have opened a cover of Stephen King said. Oh it's coming out soon people. I would not imagine demographics that do not see any other horror. Film are are coming out this weekend and why the impression I got was they really loved the kits. Yeah I think that I it was huge and almost every viewing was sold allow. When I went to go see this Friday night theaters packed yeah you can keep going on about penny wise and I think you're right for a certain level of people that loves horror ICONOGRAPHY. That's a thing thing but I feel like in mass. The reason why this is so beloved because it goes those children were so good and it connected to childhood so well and that's the struggle of chapter or two. I know that the kids are coming back in some role but the torch is being passed. It will now be for new actors. That didn't even have the job when the first movie he came out. What's funny is before it chapter one came out the sequel was in pre production. You know the studio knew what they had right and so when they were you're doing pre release interviews with the cast they asked the young kids who would you like to play you and Young Beverly said Jessica chastain and that kind of makes sense I mean chastain had had worked with Michetti before and I mean how many red headed actress sent me as I mean. It's either her Dallas Broward Sophie Turner from X. Expend Dark Phoenix twenty seven years later. That's great highlight store here. Maybe and then Wolford said Bill Hater. Those actually happened yeah yeah. I don't know how much they had already envisioned for chapter to win. Two years ago it blew up. They had talked about it. The whole way through one is what it was. They kept saying if we do a two. Let's leave this hook here. Let's leave this here. Let's leave this vague enough here. They knew if the movie was successful while filming part one in sixteen. If this did well we would want to bring the kids back would want to have some flashbacks but we're gonNA focus mostly on the adults and they had vague the ideas but they did never script yeah they knew the parts of the book they had left behind and so that was a lot of material is a big ass book. They could make lots of movies out of what was remaining remaining of that but they didn't have a script. They didn't have a cast again. It wasn't called Chapter One. They shape the experience as total you could just watch that movie the and be done and that was the studio's. Choice Warner Brothers did that the makers want to call it the losers club so that it had a hook there for a second one and and I think the compromise was chapter one at the end credits. I stand by that. I think that movie does work as a standalone if it had bombed and we never got chapter two I think that would still be a satisfying the movie as far as the art goes and I appreciate that I like it when movies tell a story instead of teas another film to come out at some other point I also think I think that there is a lot of ret conning done in the film. We're here to talk about today. Oh yeah they didn't create a first chapter that set up a lot of things they're we're going to do in this film. That's why there's so many flashbacks yeah they had to correct it by bringing the kids back and they did d. h. them with CGI because kids at that age you know two three years later look very different. I noticed height differences. I noticed like some who were shorter than beverly in part one out taller than beverly only in part to but they made the faces look younger yeah. I noticed that at times. They look a little bit plastics. Oh okay that makes sense because they D- aged Regata de age. These teenage kids not only like that but I noticed some of the lip sync work. That ain't his voice. You know your voice changes to three years later. They can't say the lines like they would've in the summer of one thousand nine hundred nine so oh yeah you just get people that kinda sound like them but are not them. Jack Dillon Grazer was the one who looked most distracting to me like for some reason his face just look blake an old man made into a child and but this is expected to be huge based off the first one I mean the first one broke records chapter. Two is breaking a record. It's the Whitest ever released for an R rated film with over forty five hundred screens in the US alone and they were saying hundred ten million two hundred twenty million this weekend. It's already falling short of expectations though it is it made less in preview screenings than the first film. It's estimated now. It's going to make less over the weekend than the first film. What did the first film do. The first film got one hundred thirty five million the first weekend. I guess I didn't see that opening weekend side there. Wasn't the big crowd. I didn't realize I was so big right away. I thought that kind of had a slow burn so it's looking like this will be perhaps second-biggest and they're now readjusting estimates down to ninety ninety million. Maybe as low as eighty million compared to one hundred thirty five million for the sequel. I gotta think some of it is you don't see kids and is not an eighties period piece. The nostalgia culture isn't there to draw in the big audiences. I know when I saw it chapter one opening weekend. Neri empty seat in the house. When I saw this opening night it was about a two thirds full on the APP but a lot of people didn't show up like all the seats around me were Phil on the APP and people just didn't come. I think that's the result of that. AMC stubs premier as you can buy tickets for no money so you reserve seats and like I'm decided not to go interesting house in the same screening as you Arnie for Thursday I max we didn't see each other until after after it was all over with but I did also go back and saw matinee on Friday. There was almost nobody there so I have not had the experience that this is something the masses asses are turning out to but the numbers are saying something different even at one hundred million if that's less than expected. That's an amazing opening. That's huge yeah for an R rated Orville. Matt is amazing and like I said packed when I saw it. I do wonder when the reviews started coming out and I always avoid reuse but you always see headlines in that. There were some concerns turns and I wonder if that scares some people away like they were not buzzing like with chapter one. I didn't hear anything I didn't see any reviews before going in but this movie cost cost twice as much as the first one bigger actors in it so if it makes less this one costs seventy million dollars they had budget built in for de aging kids and they had named named actors who we know and some of whom need to redeem themselves from an earlier x men film this summer and needs a show they still can do good budget built in so they didn't have that crap. Raffia from the TV series and it's also longer they can't screen it as many times in a day because it adds. It feels like another hour. It's not quite that it's more more like forty five minutes but still it's two hours fifty minutes. It's almost three hours. We're talking to vendors level length here well. The first chapter one was also over two two hours but this goes beyond that by at least forty minutes so again for lots of reasons. If you know the book and hold the opinion I do the best stuff.

"The venue is the same tired cramped room in the small ne- institute. They've been using since the revolution Trotsky and the rest of the committee have barely sat down when Lennon launches into an aggressive. Tirade this situation needs immediate resolution. We must sign a peace treaty without delay back me or history will say you gave away the revolution. But the committee remains divided some regret backing trophies approach, but others still believe the workers of Germany will rise up overthrow the Kaiser and halt the invasion. A few can't stomach the thought of surrendering to imperialists, but Lennon's in no mood to debate enough. I agree that the peace treaty is shameful but we must sign it to save the world revolution. Do it or I will resign. The committee is stunned. Linin resigning is unthinkable. Trotsky immediately back stone. I can't agree to signing the treaty. But if we aren't United in support for war, we cannot fight, therefore, I shall abstain. For trotsky. It's a face saving move. He gets to stick by his policy while also tipping the vote in linens favor through his abstention as the meeting ends Trotsky asks Lennon for a moment, alone, comrade Lenin. I'm resigning, as people's commissar for foreign affairs. Lennon is surprised. He doesn't see this as a resigning matter. Hell heave and respects the Marxist purity of Trotsky position. He just wishes Trotsky would focus more on the endgame, rather than risking all to make an ideological point. Why would you resign power is an adjustment for a soul? I cannot put my signature on that treaty. Besides my resignation will signal to the Germans that there's been a radical change in our foreign policy. It will strengthen their confidence in our desire for peace Lennon, considers, Trotskyites logic for a moment. There's something in that very well. I accept your resignation, but I still need you in government. Do you have a role in mind the past week shows? We need a strong army to protect the revolution. I want you to build and command are Red Army linens, not hung up on Trotsky. Near disastrous handling of the peace talks. He still sees Trotsky as his best man. But the incident has reminded him of Trotskyist maverick streak. So now Lenin wants to give his comrade a critical role. That's more about organization and offers little scope for Trotsky to pursue policies. He doesn't approve of putting him in charge of the Red Army seems like a perfect fit after all Trotsky did build indirect the red guard militia that won the October Revolution Trotsky likes the idea to he craves adventure, and what government role could be more action packed than commanding, the Soviet military. It also makes clear to the party that he and linen. Or as tight as ever, despite their disagreement over the peace talks, all the same Trotsky is no war. No peace policy has cost Russia dearly to get peace Lennon had to give the central powers lands containing third of Russia's. Population. The incident has also made linen realize how geographically vulnerable petrograd is accessible by sea, and only a few days, March from Germany's eastern border, the capital is ripe for foreign invasion. So just days after the peace treaty is signed Lennon, moves his government further east to Moscow the Soviet regime's. New home is the Kremlin this riverside fortress with its grand squares and onion dome towers, once embodied, the might and majesty of the Dar's now it's the Bolsheviks walled. OAC's. It's April nineteen eighteen and Lenin. And Trotsky are dining together in the Kremlin since moving to Moscow, Lenin and Trotsky meet daily for working dinners. It's a chance for them to discuss the latest developments and flesh out new policy ideas without distraction in elderly waiter from the days of the czar sets the table while Lennon asks Trotsky for an update on the Red Army. How long until we have a capable army Trotsky gives linen of frustrated look longer than I'd like we should consider conscription. And I want to bring back some of the imperial army officers Lennon reels with Shaq. He finds the idea of filling the Red Army with military men, who served as are not just hornet but risky to they fought for the czar. How can we trust them? We can't. But we need their expertise. I'll may. Sure, each one has a loyal Bolshevik keeping tabs on him at all times. Linen glances at the waiter, slowly pushing the trolley with the evenings meal towards them. Then he turns back to Trotsky very well. We need the Red Army ready soon. The SARS supporters are trying to build armies to overthrow us. Just then the waiter interrupts today's meal is buckwheat, porridge, and vegetable soup Trotsky, rolls his eyes. It's the same every night. This moment.

This is episode five of Lenin and Trotsky war is peace. It's February twenty third nineteen eighteen and the future of the revolution hangs in the balance. Trotsky no war. No peace policy has backfired spectacularly Trotsky sold this policy to the party central committee, as a way to end the fighting while still keeping the door open to a socialist incursion into Europe when the time is right. But now the central powers Germany, Austria Hungary, the Ottoman empire and Bulgaria are advancing unopposed into Russian territory. Their troops are now just four hundred miles from petrograd. They're only days away with the threat closing in Lenin calls in emergency meeting of the central committee..

"Know many of our listeners enjoy them with their kids. However, this may not be one of those episodes. So with the little ones are in the back we recommend skipping ahead to the next. Thanks. It's February tenth nineteen eighteen and a convoy of cars is moving through the remains of the eastern European town of breast, the toffs, it passes streets, full of burned out houses with exposed charred interiors houses, the Russian army raised as it retreated from the German, advance in nineteen fifteen without stopping the convoy heads to the outskirts of town to a group of undamaged buildings surrounded by tall barbed wire fencing, the German guards wave the cars past the checkpoint. The convoy heads to a snow covered courtyard by the largest building and stops. Moments later, a man wearing a light grey p code steps out of one of the cars. It's Leon Trotsky and he's here to end. The war. He strides into the building down a long corridor and into a sparsely decorated conference room. The representatives of the central powers are already waiting Trotsky, despises them all the air against German Foreign Minister, the pompous count, from Austria Bulgaria 's liberal, prime minister, the imperialist grand vizier of the Ottoman empire all expecting Trotsky to sign the peace treaty. They've negotiated after all the Bolsheviks grip on power is shaky and mass desertions have left the Russian army incapable of defending the nation, the tall German Foreign Minister starts the talks, Mr. Trotsky. I trust you having come all this way, not to end the war Trotsky leans back in his chair and response. The war is over. We are de mobilizing our troops. The central powers diplomats. Smile with relief at last the war is over. But then Trotsky drops a bombshell, but we will not sign a peace treaty. Smiles vanish the confused German Foreign Minister tries to wrap his head around, what Trotsky just said, sorry. Are you saying you're ending the war, but refusing to make peace? Yes, we.

"To get to the phone so Trotsky in Alabama you've been patient. You're next on CBS sports radio. Go ahead. Hey, how you doing doing? Well. I always listened to what you said about Baker. They is one of mine, I guess you could say new favorite players because that should be with walking on. And the winning is and the number one. I think he's I think he's built Cleveland self made in the UK. They put it put all the chips in all Baker Mayfield. Now what direction do you think they're going to draft? Are they going to try to show that defense or they go get back to make some toys play with? I think he's already done. I don't wanna use him as a reason to act like an idiot. And I think some franchises do that. If they think they have a franchise quarterback. I think that's what Ryan Grigson did with Andrew luck. The beginning is Karuna getting injury luck seriously injured. I'm always worried about the offensive line. But I can't just say you look at a lot of guys who needed develop anymore because a college offenses Trotsky. I don't think that if you just take a guy at the top of the draft or with your pick, which I think picking what sixteenth or seventeenth eighteenth somewhere in there with your first round pick. I don't think you just say, hey, I'm gonna take a lineman and plug and play, and that's going to be the end of it. I also can't say that I just wanna wide receiver, and that's it. And that's all because I think he's made good weapons. Oughta guys over this last year Bershad Perriman was a bust. He ended up having a nice end of the season. Cleveland Rashard Higgins was a guy who was an afterthought. He ended up having a nice season with Baker Mayfield. And obviously Jarvis Landry was able to reap the rewards. I would definitely do what you just said. I try to shore up the defense their their defense languished at the end of the year. And they do not have the depth of what a lot of other defenses in their own division. Have if I were them. There's such a thing as best player available, and I'm not just going to take a linebacker to take a linebacker defensive tackle just because I need it. But I would definitely be working on that defense in free agency. And in the draft to help him out Trotsky. Yeah, I agree with you because the way with way bubble shooting more built. And with that defense. And I you know, I I don't think they're gonna vote away the time so defense to keep up with them. But I love your show. Thank you very much trust. Appreciate the kind words in the call, my friend. Let me get the Richard Richard. Is it Dubuque Iowa? Richard walk is it. Okay. I want to make sure I said that right? Because you know, I'm on parliament. Oh, it's my hometown into bugai's baby. I love it. Go ahead. You were saying like it's Cowboys here really under pressure on their dean. And I last night. I was listening to Amy. And they were talking about America's team, you know, now is it until the Cowboys and stop, and they said, it's gotta be a team that, you know, when ally 'cause, you know, America's wears period, and well, I did some googling and. Since the Steelers in Cowboys played Super Bowl thirty and the Cowboys beat them. Pearl. Dallas had. Are one point and had sixty eight and from that point on the Cowboys has only got three victories in the postseason and Steelers past I get it. I asked who is ranked the NFL teams, you know, from one thirty to the best. And they said the Steelers are number one with a hundred and thirteen points. They passed the Cowboys and they tied him and twenty in two thousand fifteen Dallas has ten and the patriots had minded Shelvin. So yeah, I'd say they definitely have. I mean, they spent more money than any other team on talent and stuff, and they just. And yeah, I'd say they're under a lot of pressure to win. I don't think it's just a typical. I think that that's it's a tough question to answer, Richard. I thank you very much for the call. I think that's a generational thing. My generation I was a kid in the late eighties early nineties young kid in the late eighties early nineties. I think that my generation you had the triplets yet Jimmy Johnson, and the hair I think that a lot of guys my age were across the country. Definitely it's America's team. And they're still Cowboys fans. I think in this generation the Broncos have been an exceedingly popular franchise the Green Bay Packers have been an exceedingly popular franchise. I wonder how generational it is now because fantasy football's way bigger than it used to be a lot of guys fall in love with the player. Like, we do in the NBA. I think a lot of people have a favorite NBA player, and then they have their own favorite NBA team. Like, I think there's people in Milwaukee. Yeah. They're they're bucks fans in Greek freak happens to be there. So they're they're Jaanus fans. But before he showed up. Yeah. They're LeBron fan Steph curry fans that and the other that type of thing I bet in a lot of places there's guys who they love quarterbacks. They love a winner. And they happened to be fans of their favorite team. I think the question of America's team that's up for strong debate. Eight five five two one two four CBS eight five five two and two four two two seven coming up next Antonio Brown. I think is being used as a scapegoat because of the Steelers favors coming up next as well to see if I can back that claim up a king of Waller joins us live from New Orleans right now.
