Millions Miss President Trump and His Leadership

"Sure Millions of us Miss President Trump very, very much and his policies. And, uh, when you listen to what he says, and you'll notice, I conduct my interviews. I want my guests to speak, particularly a former president, United States. And, um How sensible he is. How rationally is and how, of course, the media try and create A monster out of the man. But when you listen to how he thinks Through what he says. Whether it's Afghanistan, the border, the Middle East, the election and so forth, and so on. Makes an enormous amount of sense, even at the end when he's talking about generals Very few of the guts to mention Robert E. Lee. He's not supporting Robert E. Lee. He's not supporting the Confederacy. The mental midgets around America. This is what they want you to think they'll twist What? Look, They do it with me. And I'm on here three hours a day, five days a week, explaining myself over and over and over again, but they want to twist what you said, because they don't want to argue against what you believe. And who you are. They want to create strawman and foils. To create hysteria. Because their arguments are losing arguments. They're not appealing to the American people unless you can turn somebody into a boogeyman. Which is what they try to do to President Trump. And so you hear them talking about Robert E. Lee that many people think he was a great general. Many people think he was a great general that the Confederacy would have lost a lot faster. Among those was Abraham Lincoln, who thought Robert E. Lee was a great general. Ulysses asked Grant, who thought Robert E. Lee was a great general. He was running circles around the union generals until Ulysse says Grant finally showed up. Which is President Trump's point. Lincoln had to fired general after general till he found Grant and he was advised not to take Grant. But he took him anyway. He took

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.

And i'll say this and be quiet that the true evolution of the african american community. Because i i am artist and a human being but i'm a black man and and the evolution of our race is not going to evolve into we as a people come together and create new opportunities that shape that new society. We can't be waiting on the other person or the other culture to give us. We still even. Though they bought the hand some more opportunities we still got to create our ownership. And help our people and that's how we will see that society that we want over time. So that's why. That's why i started by mississippi. That's beautiful man. I resonate with all that. And i haven't i haven't pulled my my north west florida card yet but i'll oh i tend to. I'm here in pensacola growing up. So as you talk about this.

Okay i'm thinking about the people that i didn't you know don't say i wanna say left behind but that are still there than don't have the opportunities because we are still as you said building and as i was coming up in school i thank god there were people mentors but as you now you're building that pipeline you're becoming that that gateway right to where now somebody else thirty forty years from now will feel your space and i think that's what that's a biblical thing to we talked about.

That's very talented musicians. Because of the school university of north florida which it kinda been a place that winter marsalis has spent a lot of time at. I'm and this is. The time of winter was hiring a lot of people in his band that were from the south so he got wycliffe from up the street tallahassee before you he got marcus roberts. Excuse me markus Prenup from university of north. Florida really got me yeah He got vincent gardner from university of north florida. He got marcus. Roberts who's from jacksonville You know so. You've got this sort of southern contingency that he's getting these guys. So what meet what that means is a lot of the players are playing their bought off because winter is coming to town all the time the jacksonville jazz festivals going well so i started getting serious about jazz during that time as well and i start playing local gigs. By the time i was seventeen i started running my own jam session And i was playing. I mean i was playing probably three or four nights a week so thursday wednesday night. I had a jam session. Friday saturday. I was doing corporate gigs sundays at church all day. You know and i just. And then i was in high school district all city all county all state all that so i think the idea of of a profession started when i was sixteen because i was i was paying bills paying bills and bamako's and stuff from giga. You know because i'd already been working professionally as drummer at church. They were paying the at church by the time. I was ten years old ten eleven years old. so i've been professional and working most of my life. You know because of the music. Wow and that's what's so interesting that you just mentioned about being paid even as a kid and i wanna get that whole thing but my dad. Yeah so i wanted to ask you. In terms of the professional education's we at musical education professional education learning like. Okay the do's and don'ts of the gig. Laugh the do's and don'ts of if you wanna get hired and so i kind of i always go from positive to negative and the positive right so accountable goto the negative a little bit. Because there's probably some by listening saying well. I wanted to do that. i wanted to be. I want to get found. I wanted to be discovered. i didn't have these opportunities. so were there any lessons. You learned that kind helped you avoid or maybe you fell into some of the pitfalls the professional things where you get hit by. I don't know something about brothers being time learning using any of the things. We're like you learn lessons that you now can take say to somebody else. Here's how you avoid some of the pitfalls when you're trying to get to the professional world of plane absolutely madam. I think for me to be honest. My my parents are amazing My mother is very much the visionary. She's the one you know. She's from that generation baby boomer generation stuff by bootstraps You know worked as a secretary by the end of her corporate career. She was a executive or senior vice president. At merrill lynch you know on so she was a vet generation where you were hard and how to manage and how to do all these things without a college degree so i had a mother. Understood understands corporate mindset understand strategic building and really entrepreneurship. My dad military guy. Very much about order So i think having these really amazing parents that gave me a lot of great advice remember..

The fourth march the fourth has a particular role to play in the broader cunanan story and the short version of it is that marched. The fourth was the original inauguration. Date for the us presidency so george.

What to expect in Trump's historic second impeachment trial

"Now Democrats and Republicans are gearing up for another momentous impeachment trial beginning tomorrow, the two sides are hammering out the details of the unprecedented second trial of former President Donald Trump. We're joined now by NPR senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro. Domenico. We've simply never seen this before. In American history. A president impeached twice the second time after he's left office. However, senators preparing for this occasion Well, you know they're going to be the jury, and we've already seen that 45 Republicans have sided with Senator Rand. Paul, who brought this measure forward that believing that this is unconstitutional for Senate to even bring it forward. Well, we're gonna see tomorrow. Them starting this trial. We know that the house impeachment managers on the democratic side are trying to push a, you know. Shortened case one heavy on video and emotional pleas from you know, recalling the events of January 6th to try to make it, You know, sort of somethingto, you know, almost try the president. Before the public to convince them rather than just the senators. I see. And they will be led by representative Jamie Raskin and again the charges for inciting a riot. Aside from that emotional appeal, I mean the nuts and bolts. How are they gonna make the case? You said the president, a singularly responsible not just based on his rhetoric at the January 6th rally at the lips of the White House when the pro Trump mob then stormed the capital, but also his role in false claims that set the groundwork for this and this false grievance that they had That that the president had a right to say that there was that the election was stolen from him, even though there was no evidence for that, and that that groundswell that was the whole reason why they were there in the first place, and that the president's responsible for that. So his culpability is sort of a substance of the case against him. But there's also this procedural point and as you said Domenico 45, Senate Republicans voted to dismiss the trial before it even began claiming that just from a process standpoint, you can't convict a president who isn't in office anymore. Let's hear Trump ally Lindsey Graham. And the way he put it on face The nation yesterday. If you believe you committed a crime, he can be prosecuted like any other citizen. Impeachment is a political process would never impeached a president. Once they're out of office. I think this is a very bad idea. So Domenico, he says. It's a bad idea. On the other hand, he like all of these members of Congress had very scary experience just last month, so I mean to Republicans think Trump should face any consequences. Then you know, some have called for censure. But on the case of president, you know it's interesting. Lindsey Graham leaves out the case of Ulysses S. Grant, swore secretary in 18 76, who was tried after he resigned and the impeachment managers back then thought that this had settled the case because the Senate had voted back then. Uh, that it was that they did have jurisdiction. Now it was controversial. Back then the trump lawyers who have just put out their 75 page. Brief responding to some of the charges. You cite this case and said that you know, essentially because Belknap wasn't convicted by two thirds and because most of the senators back then Didn't think that they had standing. Almost the senators who voted to acquit him thought that he didn't have standing that. That's enough to say it's unconstitutional, even though the majority of the senators voted to convict him. So it was a controversy back then, and it's still a controversy today. I see some details there of the arguments that the former president's defense team is going to make. How about a few other process things Domenico in the moment that we have left because we need other things to get sorted out like how long the trial is going to take whether both sides can call witnesses where those things stand. We're not sure how long this is going to go on. You know, all signs are that it could be a week or so on. Do you know I really think that what's interesting is going to be how the Trump Team how their lawyers go down this path. They're going to make what looks like a narrow constitutional argument that a former president can't be tried and then impeachments mainly about removal and not disqualification from office because if they go down the path Of the election fraud that that could shake loose some Republicans, and there's only just a glancing mention. Of even the election fraud and the president's rhetoric on one line and one page of the 75 page brief. That's NPR senior political editor and correspondent Domenico Montanaro. Domenico. Thanks You're

America Is in a Dark, Deeply Divided Place: Inauguration Day 2021

"In july eighteen. Sixty four some fourteen thousand confederate troops to just six miles within sight of the us capitol dome for president lincoln. It was a rude shock after all. This was a year after the union. Victory at the battle of gettysburg and the confederacy seen near defeat. Just the nicotine. Seventeen thousand union troops dispatched by ulysses s grant arrived and pushed the confederates back. Well today joe biden. Sworn in as the forty six president of the united states twenty thousand national guardsmen will defend the same capital this time from enraged citizens. It's impossible to understand how we've reached this point unless we look beyond the last few weeks even beyond the election to pre existing conditions such as our decades-long thinning out of civil society. The most recent lawlessness at the capitol reflects an escalating lawlessness that spans political parties religious affiliations age brackets social classes. And so we're faced with. The question will a militarized america. Be the new normal. Will the armed troops protecting the citadel of democracy today be patrolling the streets of writing cities tomorrow will the blatant failures of our institutions and our leaders continued to fester to this explosive level of distrust chuck. Colson often said that unless people are governed by their conscience they will be governed by the constable when people were unable to govern themselves. They then face a choice. Between order or continued chaos. Most often people will choose order which inevitably means the loss of freedoms the freedom to peaceably. Assemble is impossible to maintain when assemblies frequently turned into riots. looting or sedition. The freedom of speech seems particularly vulnerable today when big tech world so much power and decides like twitter facebook and instagram. Already have to crack down on political speech they deem offensive or dangerous and just last week representative alexandria. Ocasio cortez spoke openly about forming a committee to rein in our media environment. That's something that should anyone who has ever read any dystopia novel ever and our second amendment freedoms are most vulnerable. When used as cover by mass shooters are insurrectionist. Perhaps the most consistent refrain from america's founders is that our national experiment would ultimately prove unsustainable unless there was a virtuous citizenry. our constitution simply cannot ever knows who refused to govern themselves. John adams our second president said it most clearly quote. Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It's wholly inadequate to the government of any other and yet americans are becoming increasingly. Immoral and irreligious are shocking. Lack of conscience on display in rising numbers of both deaths from despair by that. I mean addiction self harm and suicide and acts of desperation meaning violent acts riots and even self mutilation pursuit of identity or sexual pleasure. Look we pump poison ideas into our hearts and minds and then call it entertainment. We pump lies into our children and then call it education. The result is that america finds itself in such a dark deeply divided. Play place that alexander solzhenitsyn accurately described in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight speech at harvard. We have he said quote very little defense against the abyss of human decadence such as the misuse of liberty for moral violence against young people such as motion pictures full of pornography crime and horror even the strict. This laws sits alternates in might add even twenty thousand national guard. Troops will ultimately be powerless. Defend people against such moral corrosion but the situation is dire. But it's not without hope as chuck. Colson often said despair as a sin. Christ is risen from the dead and god and his gracious goodness has revealed to us what is true and what is good. He's given us his word and through prayer. He makes himself available to

Now, Andrew Johnson's racist views offended Grant, who ran the Army. In February. 18 68 Johnson became the first president ever impeached by the House. Grant supported the removal. He and Johnson accused each other of being liars, cheats and frauds. Senate ultimately acquitted Andrew Johnson by just one vote. President Johnson was so unpopular during his tenure that the Democrats refuse to nominate him for a second term. Republicans ran grad who won easily now the two foes would be together for a transition. Grants reaction upon his election quote. I will not occupy the same carriage with Mr Johnson going to and from the capital. Putting the White House records, Johnson told his cabinet quote. We owed it to ourselves to take the ground that we could not with proper self respect witnessed the inauguration of a man whom we knew. To be untruthful, faithless and false unquote. As his successor was about to be sworn in. Andrew Johnson stayed inside the White House. At noon, he stood up shook hands with his Cabinet members headed out the door saying, Quote I fancy.

You know it wasn't supposed to be as it certainly wasn't the strength of typhoon rolly last week but the damage in manila is much much more severe than it was last week so i was awakened at about midnight. One o'clock in the morning took a winds howling. Rains pounding poured throughout the night so at about three thirty in the morning they raised They have a signal system here in the philippines and they raise the signal for an area called fateh kina to level three and they were doing evacuations throughout the night so yeah quite quite intense so as things stand a lot of the population was already impacted by goni and were in evacuation centers. But how has the situation changed with this new star yet. While it's absolutely astro faded. The scituate ation so the for the new storm made landfall rowley or ideas. It's known go.

So it's no surprise that unscrupulous distillers tax collectors and several cities are skimming like this. Anyway the ten raids and Saint Louis Chicago and the walkie go off without a hitch. A few weeks later, the zealous treasury secretary reports the findings of the raids to eulogies. And it's not good. As. Benny lists talk the president shakes his head at how many people have been or probably will be arrested. He remarks to ban well, Mr. Bristow there is at least one honest man in Saint Louis on whom we can rely. John McDonald. I know that because he an intimate acquaintance. Ben's heart sinks to his rather large stomach. Carefully explains to the overly trusting president at. Donald is the mastermind behind the entire operation. That his the president like a sucker punch to the gut. But you list proves his commitment to rooting out corruption. been later recalls that the president quote stated that MacDonald has been a friend of his and his grievously betrayed not only that friendship but the public. Close quote. Ulysses approve the arrest in firing of McDonald and everyone else on Ben's list. But the scandal isn't done yet. Here's the thing. Ben Is known for a while that the whiskey ring and Saint Louis has a protector in Washington DC. He's found several cryptic telegrams warning John. McDonnell to be on his guard. The anonymous notes are signed only self. The last one went out only one day before the successful rates, but Ben's investigators intercepted. It read quote lightning will strike on Monday be prepared for it close quote. Bench's needs to find the author of these damning. Telegrams.

In July Attorney General's Edwards Pierpont and secretary of State Hamilton fish take the mountain of evidence against Orville to use. To say the blue eyed president is shocked it'd be a major understatement. Honest and loyal to his core euless can't seem to grasp that many people lack those same values. But he sticks his anti-corruption guns and tells Edwards to State Orrville. If Babcock is guilty. There's no man who wants him so proven guilty as I do for it is the greatest piece of trader isn't to me that a man could possibly practice. On, August tenth euless publishes a letter in the newspapers with the same message. But Ulysses doesn't think that Oroville is actually guilty. So. Yes. He authorizes an investigation, but he doesn't fire. Oroville. Like I said you lose trusts people to his core no matter how much they deserve it. But Ben's case against Orville is airtight. In.

"Its section rates quote the right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race color or previous condition of servitude. Close quote. Not to overstate ulysses role in the amendment, but the presidential election of eighteen sixty eight was largely a referendum on reconstruction. The motto of Ulysses Democratic Opponent, Horatio Seymour was. And I quote this is a white man's country let white men rule. Close quote. Yeah. No beating around the Bush there. And while you list won the election by Commanding Electoral College, Victory of two hundred, fourteen to eighty. He only won the popular vote three million to two point seven. He still would have won the electoral college without black ballots but not the popular vote. That means reconstruction still on a knife's edge. If it's last it will need voting black citizens. I can't stress that last point. Enough. I. Let's not forget that many northern states still deny black Americans enfranchisement. By the eighteen sixty election, only eight northern states had given black men the vote. In other words this amendment is a game changer, not just in the south at across the nation. Second, euless hopes the Fifteenth Amendment will enable black. Americans to protect themselves. Literally, a number of ex confederates have taken to vigilantism or terrorism rather to fight the extension of civil rights to black Americans. We got an example of that in the open to the last episode with the eighteen, sixty six New Orleans massacre. And that was just one instance of many. Some bent on this hate based violence or even organizing. One such group is called the Ku Klux. Klan and yes I'll definitely go into more detail on it in a later episode promise. This organization has worried you list for years he still pissed that his. President. Andrew, Johnson refused to take action against them. Yet for all the good the fifteenth amendment does for Black Men. It fails women. As with the mail based allocation of Electoral College votes in the fourteen th minute women's suffrage is feel the sting of being passed up. Again Susan. B.. Anthony flat out opposes the fifteenth because of this exclusion. Elizabeth, Katie, Stanton, and others immediately start lobbying Congress for women suffrage granting sixteenth amendment. A have to imagine first lady Julia Grant isn't happy either given how vocal she gets about her support of women's suffrage at her White House socials. But Alas. You're still decades away from such an amendment. One last thing the fifteenth, amendment does though. It alters the relationship between the states and federal government. It does. So with it's one sentence long section to. Quote, the Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation. Close quote. See The fourteenth amendment might penalize states for excluding any male citizens from voting but fifteenth straight up takes the question of civil rights out of the hands of estates in gives it to the feds. This trend will continue. Historian James McPherson points this out so well that like biographer Rauscher now I'm going to borrow his analysis as well. Eleven of the first twelve amendments constrain federal power while six of the next seven that is thirteen through nineteen enlargement. Yeah. Let that sink in. We are witnessing a real shift in American. Political. Thought and balance of power. So, at least for now, it looks like reconstruction is working and ulysses is no small part of that. He welcomes black officials like Louisiana. Lieutenant Governor Oscar J done to the. White. House. He means black men as ambassadors, I sending Ebeneezer de Bassett to Haiti and James Milton Turner to Beria. Meanwhile. Hundreds of black men are appointed to various positions in the federal government from customs, collections to clerks and more. Forgive quick interjection. I can't help but think how much Edwin Stanton would have loved to have seen these changes. Sadly, congestive heart failure claimed the life of Lincoln's cantankerous war secretary last year on Christmas Eve eighteen sixty nine just days after the Senate confirmed him to his dream job of supreme. Court. Justice. Rest in Peace Mars You listen also set something of a record as he brings. Jews into the administration. And there's a crucial backstory here. During the Civil Wars Vicksburg campaign, then general grant was frustrated with wartime profiteers buying cotton, thereby indirectly funding the very army shooting at his men. Okay that makes sense. Unfortunately. He bought into the Anti Semitism of the day and blamed Jews for the illegal trade. On December seventeenth eighteenth sixty two he issued general order number eleven which states that quote the Jews as a class violating every regulation of trade established by the Treasury Department and also department orders. Are Hereby expelled from the Department within twenty four hours from the receipt of this order. Close quote. Brought his attention, a surprised and disappointed president. Lincoln sent orders Teela's to revoke the order immediately. In eighteen seventy however now, president grant appoints Jews to dozens of offices including the first ever Jewish territorial governor in Washington. Rabbi. Is it mayor wise says that this territorial governorship quote shows that President Grant has revoked general grants notorious. Order. Number Eleven close quote. You. Appears to be genuinely repentant. Finally. I'll remind you that our youthful general-turned-presidents spoke of wanting to study the treatment of native Americans and do better. Right off the bat you let's get one thing right by getting General Ille- Parker put in his commissioner of Indian, Affairs Now in case you've forgotten who is he was on ulysses staff during the war. He wrote up the surrender at Apple Matic's. He's also a Seneca Satan. That's right. Ellie is a native American, and he's the first one to be in charge of the United States relations with indigenous peoples. With. Elise aid you listen acts what he calls his peace policy. Just as he said, regarding reconstruction during his presidential campaign euless wants peace. Hoping to achieve that with indigenous peoples he establishes a ten civilians strong board of Indian commissioners to provide oversight for the Bureau of Indian Affairs? He then actually listened to their advice. At their recommendation, the president ends the use of political appointees Indian agents. They'll be hiring those who want peace, which often means quakers. To overstate or Mantis the peace policy is far from perfect. Between, being pressed areas of poor soil for farming called reservations and not wanting to lose their way of life native Americans are on board with quote. Unquote civilizing. Meanwhile White Americans are flocking west pushing indigenous peoples, offering central lands and expecting the US army to protect them in the process. With so much more to say here but for I think the third time today, let me just say there's a lot going on at once and we'll circle back to these stories properly in later episodes. For now, let's stick with the grant administration. In eighteen seventy two euless goes. Up. For. Reelection. But. Just like his entire presidency. The election will be rocked by scandal. This one involves vp Schuyler Colfax and a railroad construction company known as Credit Mobilier of America. It seems that for the past five years or so the guys over at credit mobilier been swindling the federal government. They've been overbilling for railroad construction costs on federally funded builds and pocketing the extra cash. But it gets worse. Back in eighteen sixty seven a few congressman got suspicious of the company's inflated costs and tried to launch an investigation. The company's directors couldn't have that. So they bribed at least a dozen congressmen with discounts on stock in the company and the investigation died. Then, speaker of the House Schuyler Colfax was one of the men who accepted the bribes. Now in eighteen seventy, two euless learns about scholars part in the scam in dumps him from the presidential ticket. Good Call Ulysses. Current Speaker of the House James Blaine won't let the scam go that easily. You think one guy losing vp slot is enough. Not. For James. He opens an actual investigation stating quote, a charge of bribery of members is the gravest that can be made in a legislative body. It seems to me that this charged demands prompt thorough and impartial investigation close quote. The credit mobilier fair almost outshines the election of eighteen, seventy two. But you list wins with fifty five percent of the popular vote and a slew of electoral votes after his opponent dies and electors switched their votes. Seriously the electoral college can be so fascinating. Now he has to stay down another four years in the White House. As you list begins his second term in office things don't come down. A financial crisis looms on the horizon. Now most economic crises. The impending downturn has multiple domestic and international causes. All just give the broad strokes. For the last few years, US investors have speculated wildly in the railroad industry. Hello Credit mobilier. And that bubble is ready to burst in addition there were huge property and business losses in the Great Chicago Fire in eighteen seventy one and the Boston fire nineteen seventy-two. Across the pond in Europe the German Empire decided last year to stop minting silver coins which has lowered demand for American silver exports. Then there's a financial crash in Vienna whose ripple effects are felt even in the US. All of these setbacks combine into the perfect financial storm. But something happens in the fall of eighteen seventy three. The takes this from tropical squall to category five hurricane. On September eighteenth eighteen seventy three J KOKIN company declare bankruptcy. The death of this railroad investment firms since Wall Street into a tailspin. Within weeks bank reserves in New York City alone plummet from fifty million to seventeen million. The New York Stock Exchange even closes for ten days. This starts a full blown depression across the country, not a great setup for ulysses second. term, agenda. But the general who didn't give up on the battlefield at Shiloh won't give up now. euless meets with Ohio Senator John Sherman and yes. John is related to William Tecumseh the brothers. Anyway the President Senator worked together to pass the Specie payment resumption act. It sounds fancy, but basically, it takes the US back to having only gold backed paper money, Aka the gold standard and constricts the money supply. It's pretty much the opposite of what a twenty-first-century president might do but the hard money president hopes this bill curb the depression in the long run. Unfortunately, you can't wait and see. His New Treasury Secretary Benjamin Bristow has been cleaning house in his department and he comes across yet another scandal. and. This one will overshadow anything that's happened in the grant administration. Let me tell you the whole story. In. June eighteen seventy four you're listening Benjamin Bristow as secretary of the Treasury. Bins kentucky-born Republican who uses whatever government office he holds promote African American rights including suffrage universal desegregated education. On top of that battle of Shiloh, veteran ben has assigned himself task of cleaning up government corruption.

Ben Gets to work right away firing incompetent cronies and creating efficiency out of waste and almost immediately, the treasury secretary notices will Har- inconsistencies in whiskey tax collection reports.

"Ulysses. Feels that difference in foreign affairs as well particularly in his aspiration to annex Santo Domingo or as you and I later no. The Dominican Republic. In eighteen sixty, nine the government of the Spanish speaking Caribbean nation likes the idea. It signs off on an annexation treaty that would grant the US, a fifty year lease of its summoned ave and eventually have sent it Mingo joined the United States. Now why would you want this? Is this just old fashioned expansionism. There might be some of that in their. The US is still expanding. It just bought Alaska from Russia two years back. Don't worry I'll tell you that story another time. Soon, I promise in the nineteenth century is one dominated by colonizing empires But beyond military value ulysses, economic and reconstruction value. To quote his personal memoirs Santo. Domingo is upon our shores is very fertile and is capable of supporting fifteen millions of people. I took it that the colored people would go there in great numbers. So as to have independent states governed by their own race, they would still be states of the Union and under the protection of the general government. The citizens would be almost wholly colored. To be clear, euless isn't calling for black Americans to leave the US nor is he sane they don't belong in the midst of reconstructions rising violence against black Americans he does however like the idea of state where black Americans can indisputably live in safety. Even. If Black Americans don't move there, just having the option of becoming independent farmers in Santo Domingo will he figures improve their negotiating position for jobs. So you list sees this as a win win. No matter what. But Kenny solid to the Senate which article two section two of the constitution must ratify treaties by a two-thirds favor vote. It's now Sunday evening January second eighteen seventy. euless heads across Lafayette Square to the home of US senator and chair of the Senate. Foreign Relations. Committee Charles. Sumner. The honourable gentleman from Massachusetts once beaten to within an inch of his life for his abolitionist views has some wrinkles over this treaty of annexation. The president hopes he can iron those out. Showing up at Charles's place unannounced ulysses's caught the senator in the midst of dinner to friends. No problem declining the offered glass of Sherry euless asks both guests to please stay then starts to explain why he wants Santo Domingo in the Union. By the way Mr President, the wavy haired mutton chops senator suddenly interjects it is very hard to turn out governor Ashley. Charles talking about his friend, James Ashley Current Governor of Montana territory. I've just received a letter from the governor and I hope I shall not take too great liberty. Mr. President I read it. Too. Great a liberty or not Charles reads the. You Lis- shrugs it off why retain a territory governor? He doesn't like. He says as much to Charles then returns to defending the treaty. Charles Listens finally he answers I am an administration man and whatever you do will always find a need the most careful and candid consideration. Will that isn't a? Yes. Then you list doesn't know what is and seriously I mean. He doesn't Charleston's politics spoke to him which I'm not sure as of her but I making it one anyway. He made us think he said, yes. But he never actually did as the treaty winds to the Senate in eighteen. It dies with Thai vote of Twenty eight to twenty eight far short of two-thirds. It's only later euless realizes that when Charles brought up his territory governed friend, he likely wanted some quid pro quo. Straight shooting general just couldn't read between the political lines. No K. I know it sounds like you Liz really getting beat up so far. And obviously, he has to have some serious setbacks for several generations of historians to knock his presidency. But he has his victories to howls who twenty first century historians later find more redeeming narrative. His administration avoids getting sucked into a potential war with Spain, by getting Congress to comment support for Cuban independence some talk of annexation here as well but it's a footnote in this decade, we'll keep moving. Staying within the realm of foreign affairs also ends a huge victory in relations with the United Kingdom. UK technically stayed neutral in the civil war.

Rian before she was even allowed to vote. Victoria Claflin later, Victoria Woodhall was one of ten children born to illiterate mother and a petty criminal father. Would Hell attended school sporadically for a few years. At Age Fifteen, she married a doctor who soon revealed himself to be an alcoholic philanderer. To make matters worse the sixteen year old woodhall gave birth to a mentally handicapped son who would need extra care in eighteen fifty four. Three of would hold siblings had died as children. And she claims she had clairvoyant powers to communicate with them. Always looking for a new scam, to run. Her father put her on the road with her sister Tennessee as a faith healing and fortune telling act selling elixirs that promised to cure everything from asthma to cancer. They didn't. In fact, Tennessee was indicted for manslaughter after one of her patients died. By some good fortune that I don't know the sisters found themselves with a wealthy patron in the form of railroad magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt. He and Tennessee were rumored to be lovers. Stock Tips that she picked up during their relationship came in pretty handy during an eighteen, sixty, nine gold panic during which the sisters supposedly netted seven hundred thousand dollars. With. Vanderbilt's bankrolling Victoria and Tennessee then opened their own highly publicized firm named Woodhall Claflin and company becoming the first female stockbrokers on wall. Street. However they were never granted a seat on the New York Stock Exchange. It would take another near century before Muriel Siebert did in nineteen, sixty seven. In the same year that she became a stockbroker would attended her first suffragette rally and immediately became a passionate devotee of the 'cause. She befriended or beguiled a congressman to get her an invitation to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. She argued that women did already have the right to vote under the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments those granted persons born or naturalized in the United, states citizenship and prohibited voter discrimination. But the house declined to enact any legislation on the matter. Even still the appearance made her a celebrity among suffragettes. In. April. Of Eighteen seventy, just two months after opening her brokerage firm woodhull announced her candidacy for president of the United States on a platform of women's suffrage regulation of monopolies nationalization of railroads, an eight hour workday direct taxation. Abolition of the death penalty and welfare for the poor what whole helped organize the equal rights party. which nominated her at its May eighteen, seventy two.

How Did Juneteenth Get Started?

"Every year on June nineteenth, millions of people across America. Come together to celebrate June eighteenth with parties parades, prayer, breakfast and golf tournaments, cookouts and music. The holiday is now officially recognized in forty seven states plus Washington DC though it hasn't been made a national holiday yet, despite having been around for more than one hundred and fifty years. We spoke with Paula Austin a professor of African American Studies and History at Boston University. She said You'd be surprised. There are many students who get to my class, and they sort of never learned about the history of enslavement. They've never learned about the civil rights movement. I think I've had students who because of where they're from, or their families know about June eighteenth, and of actually participated in the celebrations, but most students come, and they don't know. But let's go back to the beginning on June nineteenth eighteen, sixty, five more than two months after confederate general Robert e Lee surrendered to ulysses s grant at APP Maddix which all, but ended the civil war, a US army officer by the name of Major General Gordon Granger. In Huston Texas with two momentous announcements, the end of the civil war, and with it the end to slavery. Nobody is quite sure why it took so long for news of summation to reach Texas several stories have been told throughout the years though none has ever been confirmed including one of an earlier messenger who was killed on his way to Texas to tell the news of freedom. Others believe that some enslavers truth, but simply continued going about business as usual. The most likely is simply that there were not enough troops to enforce the emancipation proclamation whether enslaved people knew about it or not, so things remained status quo. That is until Major General. Grainger showed up. After granger's announcement, some of the two hundred fifty thousand freed people in Texas, immediately left for the promise of true freedom in the north, while others traveled to rejoin family members one formerly enslaved person, Molly Herrell said in the slave narratives of Texas. We all walked down the road singing shouting to beat the band. Others stayed defined pain work in the fields elsewhere. That day marks what is now often called lack independence day, or the fourth of July. It's the American celebration of freedom from slavery. June teen was first observed in Texas in eighteen, sixty six. It wasn't officially recognized as a holiday in any state until Texas did so in Nineteen, seventy nine. Since then only North Dakota South Dakota and Hawaii have declared a holiday. In recent years both the US House of Representatives and the US Senate have formally recognized June nineteenth as June, tenth Independence Day. Various movements to grant the day status is a national holiday are ongoing. US Senator Cory Booker said in two thousand eighteen. On this day we must confront ugly parts of our history and honor the slaves who suffered and died under a repressive regime. We must also pay tribute to all those who had the strength and conviction to fight to end slavery and keep our Union together. June teeth independence. Day is also an important moment to recognize how far we've come and take note of how far we have yet to go. Certainly during the original June eighteenth, there was still a lot of work to be done. It came just months after the civil war ended and two years after the emancipation proclamation was signed by President Abraham Lincoln the Thirteenth Amendment to the US Constitution, which abolished slavery, had been passed by Congress was well on its way to being ratified by the states, but the fourteenth and fifteenth guaranteeing equal protection and the right to vote to all citizens, regardless of skin color were still a couple years off. And not all enslaved people in Texas were immediately freed some held by defiant plantation owners were not emancipated until much later, some formerly enslaved people who tried to leave historical reports show were tracked down and killed. Many more stepped into a future of poverty, fear and uncertainty. Austin suggests that many Americans ignorance about June eighteenth stems from a disinclination to completely face the country's past slavery, and it's far reaching and continuing aftermath. Still? June eighteenth has persevered. Its observance has waned through the years under the oppression of Jim Crow laws and attitudes, but the festivities that began in Texas eventually spread to more states and the idea of commemorating block independence picked up through the civil rights era of the nineteen sixties, and the parties continued today. Austin, said the kinds of celebrations that I've seen and been a part of have been incredibly wonderful there about black culture there about black history there about the resistance and the resilience of the black community. Several years before grainger made his do nineteenth declaration in Galveston famed American Orator Frederick Douglass himself formerly enslaved, spoke to an abolitionist group in New York about the fourth of July. As being dave independence, and how it didn't fit for all Americans, he said what the American slave is your fourth of July I answer a day that reveals to him more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. Opel Lee a former schoolteacher counselor in Fort Worth. Texas has been instrumental in trying to get June. Tenth recognized as a national, holiday. This year she'll walk from the Fort Worth Convention Center to the will. Rogers Coliseum, leading a caravan, urging people to sign a petition for the cause leave who is ninety three years old has been part of the Fort Worth June eighteenth festivities for more than forty years. Last year, it's as important as the fourth of July. In fact I dream some day. They celebrate from the nineteenth to the fourth like they do Mardi Gras. I haven't dreamed as large as the Rose Bowl or the macy's parade, but I'm getting there. To those who observed June eighteenth despite its shaky beginnings, and it's still unfulfilled pledge the day still holds the promise of freedom, independence, equality, ideas, and ideals always celebrating.

Ely Parker | Part 2 | The Civil War

"Hello and welcome to Iroquois history and legends. I'm Caleb. I am Andrew we are continuing with our series on the lustrous Mr L. E. S. Parker last episode we talked about his early life is education his diplomacy with the United States and his job as a civil engineer, and where he finds himself, now is in between jobs, and at the brink of the civil war in the United States breaking out, and I'm GonNa sum this up. Up What had happened was we saw all these native American peoples being removed from their land and forced to move west across the Mississippi and into the Oklahoma territory with all these native peoples depopulated from the eastern United States that left all kinds of area that opened up for agriculture and farming, and this led to more tension between the northern and southern states, because you had people joining to rush into the southern and western states. And, they wanted to make sure that slavery was instituted these places because then they could keep their balance of power higher in the US Congress were they could get more senators or members of the House of Representatives to make policies that would guarantee the rights of the southern territories and states, so that's where we find ourselves in and states are rushing around to be declared slave or free, and then a Abraham Lincoln gets elected president, and all heck breaks loose now you may think hey, Parker. He became a captain in the New York. State militia right so he's probably getting ready for war to. But no, he wasn't called upon for his services in engineering in the military or anything so after he finished his contracts in. Illinois he moved back to the tunnel, Wanda reservation and began farming. He quickly became very bored Andrew farming was not the life for a man like him. Many of the Seneca were gearing up for war, looking to join the United States Army Parker went and spoke to his father. Who as you recall from last episode was a veteran from the war of eighteen twelve, and he received his blessing to take up the war, Pat, but Parker. He wasn't. GonNa go as grunt. He wanted to go as a commission soldier. You'd already been. been a captain in the New York militia, so he asked the governor of New York for a commission like a real commission is apparently the militia commissions didn't really count the governor of New York declined so then what did he do when things fail in New York do what everybody else does. Go to a different state. I'm just kidding, but he did. bypass New York state and try to go directly to the federal government. You know. He had some friends in high places in Washington at this point, so he said Hey. Captain in the New York State militia civil engineer. How about a commission? declined. He got a letter from the Secretary of war Edwin Stanton. Quote. Parker this is a quarrel between white men, in which you Indians are not concerned, unquote. Another federal official that he wrote to told him quote. Unquote and I'm sure. They said it just as condescendingly. Some people may have made departure that his lack of US citizenship. Maybe what's holding him back from getting this commission? Because this is the same time that we see, he actually applied for citizenship. Oh, how'd that work out for him? Mile had a lot like everything else to the government. He was turned it down again. So from eighteen, sixty, one to eighteen, sixty two, he worked on his farm, and he also worked for the Indians on the reservation. He penned one letter to an old militia General John Martindale where he jokes about being a bad farmer and eating a wife, he asked the general quote. If, he knew any strong, healthy, double breasted woman that would want to be a farmer's wife. Can you say that again? That strong. HOW DOUBLE BREASTED WOMAN! So I thought you said? Did you think double breasted? Okay then we're just. This is a family home to show after all so. We'll just leave it at that. I don't know it seems like pretty good things to look for in a woman. Was His. With a lot of single I'm. You were saying. Parker has been farming for about two years now any starting to think that he's never gonNA. Get his chance. But he did still have a few friends looking out for me and you. And they were a couple of friends that were becoming pretty influential in the war, and Parker didn't even think the contact them. One of them was the jeweler in Gallina, and the other was the grocer. They are now being known as General John. Smith and General Ulysses S grant. They actually said to themselves. You know who we could use right now is parker. Parker was joined to the General Staff with the rank of captain in May twenty, fifth, eighteen, sixty three, but you'll never guess Andrew. He found another complication and this one is coming from a different. Place than you would think. If you remember Parker was made a what. Saito in say tim was a life appointment. Holding has shown checks and balances aspect of the government. Say Chimps were the political leaders. And they could not go to war right? You would have a war chief appointed, and you would have your say. And you'll have your clan. Mothers Each end so now he wants to go to war, but he's a saint shown so Ariza. Wait a minute. Can you legally legally from the? WHO NEEDS schone standpoint? Can you legally go to war? So a meeting was held, and they decided that sense he would be a captain fighting in the war of the whites. You would not be violating the checks and balances protocol.

Adina Hoffman: Ben Hecht: Fighting Words, Moving Pictures

"I'm Michael Silver Blah this bookworm arm and today I'm very pleased to have as my guest. Adina Hoffman the Dina has written a life of the great almost mind boggling screenwriter Ben. Hecht the book has the Subtitle Fighting Words moving pictures this Ben Hecht had his. Oh would you say finger in so many tries He starts out now having moved with his family to the mid West as soon as he graduates from high school. He realizes this is. The college is not for him and he high tails it to Chicago where he becomes a very well-known newspaper this paper Man Song well known that his adventures in the newspaper business but come perhaps the most is famous play ever to be written about newspapers that he wrote with Charles MacArthur. Yes called the front page. The the front page becomes his girl Friday with cary grant and Rosalind Russell and thereby hangs a tale every the time Ben Hecht turns around. There's a revision of something. He's done a new who've version of it by someone else that he in turn revise right even his own memoirs has multiple versions of what happened to him in his own life life. He's kind of astonishing. This came from the days when face at a writer wrote right. These were people who wrote all the time there's also literary life that Hecht has in Chicago and actually this was one of the fascinating things for me is where his kind of the big city You know newspaper world met the world of the Chicago Renaissance and a lot of the people who were in that newspaper world. People like Carl Sandberg. who was a really good friend of Heck's you know he was also a reporter and they were sort of Newspaperman by day and then by night they were writing their poems in their novels and Hecht was not only hanging around with people like Sherwood Anderson Jason and he was also publishing in the little review which is unbelievable magazine? Push some of the first chapters of James Joyce's ulysses and they felt. What was her name? Margaret Anderson Anderson felt that Ben Heck was every bit as much a member of of the little review says dream straight. And he's there on almost every single issue. He was a kind of a pet of hers. He was sort of in love with her. She was unfortunately Very distracted by high art and she was also a lesbian was not interested in in that way but she loved him and she published him. Ben Has a great fiction writer. I mean he was. He fancied himself self novelist But he was very devoted to that calling but at the same time that he was writing. These very heavy breathing stories for Margaret Anderson. He was also writing he. He was whipping off these commercials stories for Lincoln at the smart set. HMO MINKIN was one of his heroes. Mencken was a cynic cynic and a sophisticated and he had every bit of hostility toward the dumb aspects of American culture. He was trying to make America smart op. He wrote fascinating essays sason books on the American language as opposed to British. We don't get an American writer per se until until Mark Twain who's writing the Mississippi River. Talk that he learned when he was a boatman. Well by the time you've got the middle of the country Chicago you've got gangsters you've got prohibition you've got flappers you've got an American language wood jr that was invented here and Hecht loved. -actly yeah and I think for me. That was one of the wonderful things about spending time with him. I was reading. This book was spending time with his language. I mean whatever you WANNA say about. Whether his books are wonderful books or not so wonderful books he was a wonderful maker of sentences and paragraphs graphs and just terrific wit on top of it and he and Macarthur wrote the front page. which was kind of Valentine to that newspaper World of Chicago? You go where they've both been cub reporters you see. He comes in to the newspaper office. Writing these things. In Extreme Telegraphy Telegraphy as as you quote them right they are made of twenty three delight phrases. He's putting them together hurling them together and eventually he's going to have some fame as the newspaper Komo's rining calms every every day made up of just what he heard some Hobo say right or what some very wealthy people were saying in a casino no to be a writer then will start out as journalists. That's where Hemingway starts. He proposed this idea of. But this daily column that you've mentioned which would become known as a thousand and one afternoons in Chicago and they're kind of remarkable pieces they're just little snippets and there's a sense that the news is not just test the news of the grant headline it's also all these sort of marginal lives and people. You know the guy who runs the laundromat and the woman who works as a manicurist and has to fend off her lecherous clients. There's a way in which he's tossing this stuff off in a very casual way reading them daily. They're published on the back page of the newspaper next to the to the comic strips and he's not taking them too seriously or taking himself too seriously and there's so much better than the fiction into which he was pouring his all of his artistic ambition. That just is not the effective whereas these things that he was doing kind of on the fly as you say they're wonderful and they're incredibly generous and sympathetic. You feel him identifying with all of the city of Chicago In a way they kind of anticipate the work of later colonists people like beat Hamill and Jimmy Breslin. Who would become more famous in a way for doing doing that? who may also by now have been forgotten but act. was doing that early on. I'm talking to Adina Hoffman about. Don't her book Ben. Hecht its subtitle fighting. Words moving pictures and it's published in the Jewish writers series series published by Yale University. Press you mention that a lot of these people have been forgotten even people more recent Jonathan head so why Ben Hair. Well IT'S A. It's the question that I get all the time. And it's a good question and I mean basically at some level I feel like I've known Ben Hecht before before I knew Ben Hecht if you grow up watching American movies. He's his words are in your head even if you've never heard his name and so and I used to watch a lot of old movies as a kid but it was only when I became more conscious conscious and started to read about film history I actually worked as a film critic throughout most of the ninety s Then I was very aware of who Ben Hecht was and I I read his wonderful memoir child trial of the century. And I thought wow you know okay the movies he's known as you know. Pauline Kale called him the greatest American screenwriter Gianluca Dard said he invented eighty percent percent. Of what is used in Hollywood movies today called him a genius and all of that is true but the fact is that for heck the movies were really just a piece of it and in some ways they were actually may be one of the smaller pieces pieces of it in that memoir is full of all these other lives that we've just been talking about so I was first of all fascinated by that multiplicity of his the fact that he could contain multitudes dude but I also was drawn to heck in terms of his relationship to Jewish things. And here's a place where he basically an American Jew who claims not to have really paid much attention to the fact of his Jewishness until his consciousness was sort of raised by the Holocaust there. He's been in Chicago. He knows the woman. Editing the little review he knows call Sandberg. He knows Sherwood Anderson he moves to New York becomes friends with Herman Mankiewicz Herman Mankiewicz and also the roundtable tape Dorothy Parker and Benchley and S J Perelman and the Algonquin New Yorker Gang. He he moves to Los Angeles. He does what's so many do he has nothing but contempt damned for the people who started the motion picture industry. You say that you're interested in Hicks. Judaism with those were hits Jews. He didn't like them. There are a lot of Jews in heck's life he was actually born on the lower east side and he spent the first few years of his life. There and I don't actually think that that's Unimportant I mean. He grew up in Racine Wisconsin. which is this pastoral American American place etc but there is a way in which those tenements were in him in a very deep

The story was told in a remarkable arkell but obviously forgotten article in the September twenty seventh nineteen o eight edition of The Washington Evening Star under the headline Only policeman who ever arrested a president. That policeman was William H West. A black man who had fought in the civil war since his retirement. The story said he has decided to let the public know the true story of the arrest. It begins with grants love of fast horses. General grant was an ardent admirers of a good horse in love. Nothing better then to sit behind a pair of spirited animals the star source said she was a good driver and sometimes let them out to try their metal and that's where grant as president wrote into the law. The police had been receiving complaints of speeding speeding or starregistry after mother and child had been run over and badly injured officer. West was dispatched to investigate as West. Spoke to witnesses another group of speeding horse. Carriages headed toward him including one driven by the president of the United States policeman. West held up his hand for them to stop the story. Said grant was driving a pair of fast steppers in. He had some difficulty in halting them but this he managed to do grant was a bit testy home. Well officer he said what do you want with me. Hello West replied. I want to inform you Mr President that you are violating the law by speeding along this street. Your fast driving sir. Her has set the example for a lot of other gentlemen. The president apologized promised. It wouldn't happen again. Galloped away away but grant could not curb his need for speed the next evening westwards patrolling at the corner the thirteenth and m streets when the president came barreling through again this time speeding so fast that it took him an entire block to stop. When West approached him? Grin was cocky. The Star article said he had a smile smile on his face that made him look like a schoolboy. Who'd been taught by teacher? Grants excuse for speeding was not unlike one. That's the probably being given somewhere right now on America's rose he had no idea he had been going so fast. West was sympathetic. But I I am very sorry Mr President to have to do it. He said for you are the the chief of the nation and I am nothing that a policeman but duty is duty Sir and I will have to place you under your arrest. It's worth pointing out here that standards of journalism especially with quotations were. We're not as rigorous back then as today so it's nearly impossible to know if this is the whole truth and nothing but the truth however linear did confirm the arrest and there are other historical references to it anyway grant in several of his speeding buddies who were also arrested went with west to the police station. He President of the United States was ordered to to put up twenty bucks as collateral. A trial was held the next day. Thirty two ladies of the most refined character and surroundings voluntarily came into the court and testified against the drivers. The Star story said the cases were contested bitterly. The judge imposed heavy fines and the scathing rebuke to the speeding drivers which didn't include the president.

The Heroine of Lime Rock Lighthouse

"Of the July thirty first eighteen sixty nine edition of Harper's weekly. There was a portrait of a steely looking woman in a long dress. Her arms crossed not the slightest hint of a smile on her face. The caption identified her as Miss Ida Lewis the heroine of Newport. She is almost totally forgotten now but back in her day IDA Lewis Miss Ida Lewis was a national hero a lighthouse operator who rode road into the stormy waters of Newport Harbor in Rhode Island to rescue mariners in distress. How many people did she save. Nobody knows for sure a dozen maybe two dozen but enough to become front page news for VIP's to clamor to meet her for a Polka titled Titled. The ocean waves dash wildly high to be written in her honour wasn't unlikely national hero. She was shy for one thing and she took up her post at the lime rock lighthouse after her father. The sea-captain suffered a stroke but the heroine of lime rock as she became known was intrepid and brave. Her first rescue was at age fifteen when she wrote out to save two boys whose boat capsized one time she used a clothesline to rescue two men who had fallen through the harbors ice ace another time she saved two sailors then went back to rescue their sheep. She wasn't instantly famous. Though in eighteen sixty nine after she saved two soldiers from drowning in the harbor the New York Times wrote she never here's the voice of Distress Neither Day without jumping shopping into her little craft and proceeding to the scene of trouble the Times added it is a pity that no testimonial has ever been given to this lady eighty for the many lives she has saved the fourth of July. That year was declared. I Don Luis Day and Newport presented her with three cheers and a new boat. The Times reported that she didn't like the fuss and appeared at the event and reluctantly she refused to give a speech so the famous abolitionist Thomas Wentworth Pigan spoke on her behalf but but the nation still wanted to celebrate her she had visits from Ulysses. S Grant Women's rights champion Susan B. Anthony and hundreds of others Louis started experiencing bouts of poor health in the eighteen ninety s she died died on October twenty fourth nineteen eleven after suffering stroke and collapsing in the lighthouse. She was sixty nine years old more within a century later in early September of this year miss. Ida Lewis was bestowed an extraordinary honor at Arlington National Cemetery. She became the first woman to have a drive named after knowing Louis though she probably would have preferred how Newport honored her after she she passed bells tolled and tribute and she was buried under a tombstone with the image of an anchor and crossed ores

"But this is my point to you. This is why I get concerned. When you don't receive the information, you should it's almost like the liberal media. If the president triggers this. All this talk about centralization, and I've written about it more than anybody. It would pale in comparison. To the executive power is exercised by John Adams. Andrew jackson. James polk. Abraham lincoln. Ulysses s grant Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt. Dwight Eisenhower Lyndon Johnson, Barack Obama just the name a few not even close not even close. And nothing compares to the power grab of the court as an institution nothing. Our constitution would never ever have been adopted in Philadelphia. First of all, I never would have been written to empower the courts like this. But it never would have been adopted by the delegates in Philadelphia. It certainly never would have been adopted by the by the delegates at the various constitutional conventions in the various states never ever. And yet there it is. Upholding almost all of the Obama agenda and wherever possible striking down the Trump agenda as it continues to do. Now, some might say ho what aboutism now this is called history history matters, unless you're a leftist, and you believe history begins today. Ethics begin today. Morality begins today Madeira needy. No, it doesn't begin today. And it didn't begin today. So one might are this doesn't excuse Trump triggering the act. Who said it did? It's not an excuse. It's an explanation. Now, of course, as I say, the irony is that some court is likely to strike down not the law per se, but Trump's use of it, and that's my problem with these so so-called conservative commentators, many of them are never Trumpers or have been never-trumpers. That's why in the past. They've never addressed the statute. But today it concerned about centralized government. Real. Well, and you cherry pick like this when you leave out history and context when you're unexplained there is in fact, a check and balance on this president or any president who exercise the national emergencies act? You're not doing anybody a favor. Chess more anti Trump anti-trump, and it is not we who are wearing the uniform that is of that team. It is. Who wear the uniform and yet they pretend to be objective, which is joining a legal analysis just writing about the history of the national burden. She's no, you're not just doing anything. Now. I wanna talk about this New York Times article, but I wanna have plenty of time to do it. So what I'm gonna do is take early brake now, and I hope you'll stay with me. And I wanna address this issue. That's been going on all weekend. By are really Russian media. They act like the Russian media act like Pravda. This isn't a real media. We have in this country. Is the president of the United States a secret Russian spy, and then you look at media or you listen to some of these shows he didn't flat out deny it ditty. Ladies and gentlemen. I think the press is worse today than any time in our history. And it's getting worse. Still stick with me. I'll be right back..
