"The civil war. This is a question that was never asked of Bill Clinton, who was celebrated for his sister soldier moment. Right, Remember, Remember, Bill Clinton was a brilliant new kind of Democrat because he called out our rappers sister he had a sister soldier moment where he could criticize Ah black woman he picked on this black woman who is that unknown wrapper. No one knew who sister soldier Wass, but Clinton vilified her. And and he was celebrate. Look, a brilliant new kind of Democrat who was, you know, speak out again. Meanwhile, they pass the crime bill and Hillary's up there talking about predators in the streets. Traveling in packs, and no reporters said Hey, you know all this volatile language? All these dog whistles. Can I ask you a question? Are you happy that the South lost The Civil war. And these were Southern politicians. I'm talking about with Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. They were never asked this question. Now Donald Trump, who has spoken out against mobs tearing down statues in the dark of night while carrying torches and chains. And vandalizing the public square. And make no mistake. These are not just statues of Confederate soldiers or generals. They're talking about Teddy Roosevelt. They're talking about Abraham Lincoln. They're talking about Ulysses Grant. Last time I checked, those three gentlemen were on the right side. Of the Civil War. So it's a despicable question to begin with. And, frankly, Kaylie mechanisation that you know what we're done with these briefings. If if this is where we are now, if you're asking me what the president's position is on the civil War But here's her answer. He's proud of the United States of America. Second with regard to our statues, Americans opposed tearing down our statues. There's a Harvard Hairs poll released last week that shows 60% of respondents said the statue should remain in 71% said local government should block groups from physically destroying Ryan Lizza. Ladies and gentlemen, with quite possibly the stupidest, most of Sensitive question. Asked by a reporter if I had asked you, you know, do you think Ryan Lizza could outdo Jim Acosta?

We stickers coming and much more also if he can. If you can do, you can join them as a member at Petri on dot com slash daily Detroit. We do exclusive updates. They are all kinds of stuff like that and thank you so much now let's step back in time to a story that began in the eighteen forties. Ulysses grant was probably the first great general. General of the modern era of warfare, and his leadership was integral to winning the civil war for the Union grant. Our eighteenth president was one of those people who can't be understood in tweet. He was a man of contradictions who wrestled with many of the questions of his time as he went from being a tanner to occupying the White House. He's one of the Americans. Who has had an impact on our nation that we still feel today, and you might not know that for a time. He live right here in Detroit. Even more house. He lived in an eighteen, forty nine, and was built in eighteen, thirty seven. It's still stands. It's one of the oldest buildings in the city, and it's in the process of getting another lease on life. Joining me on the line to learn more is Sandra Clark Director of the Michigan Historical Center they worked to discover preserve and share the stories of Michigan. So what has been the state of the House over the? Last few years or decades, because it seems like it's been kind of in media, obscurity for Awhile and the nineteen thirties, it was moved to the state grounds. And for quite a while and the Detroit, Stoorikhel society would open it at least during state fair time to visitors that started to fade by the time. I really started knowing anything about it to become another place to put things on the State Fair grounds, but not a public building anymore and we got really got involved with when the state fairgrounds were closed. Because at that point, our historical commission became concerned about its potential survival. We'd already lost the soap to fire so. That's kind of two historic pieces on the state fairgrounds. By that time that it had been taken care of on the exterior, but it was not a public place anymore. So what about the grant house called to you to get involved? My Commission other thought it was important to get involved, but I think there is always a bit of romance and pride attached with home of former presidents of this country. So that is somewhat the attraction and I think the particular person who live there it. It's an interesting situation because they don't live there for very long, and it's very early and grants career I. Think the thing that really got me sold that we gotta pay attention. Is a picture that we found. We were doing research of the house when grant died, and it was draped in mourning, it had black draping in. Ted You know red, white and blue on ANA and grant home. And it really said to me that the People Detroit didn't forget that this man had lived in this. House I was GONNA. Say you know grant is the kind of character that you know for the years right?.

question of unbridled talk about your home's defensive system in this particular story I find it hard to believe that a man randomly broke into a home and attempted to steal a safe chances are he already knew the safe was there perhaps even the location of the save as well as its contents most criminals are opportunistic in nature that is they see an opportunity developed and they are quick to seize upon it but other criminals are smarter and tend to plan their crimes out well in advance so they don't get caught as a general rule you should keep all information about your home's offensive system secret and given out and they need to know basis only despite that I often read postings from people on Facebook or other forms of social media where they brag about the safety of their homes

Allegedly friends of Johnson went so far as to buy votes with slush fund of one hundred fifty thousand dollars the equivalent of over two million in today's money in order to convict Johnson. The Republicans needed thirty six senators to find Johnson. Guilty in the end the Republicans would be one vote. Short on May sixteenth. Johnson was acquitted on the eleventh article which was believed to be the surest bat for the radical Republicans. The tally was thirty guilty. Nineteen not guilty. Ten days later after the Senate voted on the first and second Oracle votes achieve the same results. The Republicans gave up a motion to adjourn passed. The Senate and the trial was over.

Julia asked him if he wanted the presidency grant replied no but I do not see that I have anything to say about convention is about to assemble and from all.

"Your afternoons are now more stimulated back to mark look bad on K. N. S. T. E. M. seven ninety two sons most stimulating talk here in the US ambassador to Israel David Friedman return about Jerusalem and the significance of Jerusalem and I had a break go ahead well you know the pilgrims came to the United States thinking they were creating the new Jerusalem Ulysses grant Mark Twain visited Jerusalem Abraham Lincoln wished he would have been able to visit Jerusalem we set up a consulate in Jerusalem eighteen forty four hundred four years before the state of Israel because the United States has had a a love affair with Jerusalem a fantasy into an obsession even about true slim since its founding in the the key thing about to resume is that the word itself Jerusalem means city of peace but Jerusalem has been anything but the city of peace you know for the thirty five hundred years that it's been been around things changed in nineteen sixty seven when Jerusalem was reunited reunified under Israeli control for the first time Jews Muslims and Christians were able to worship together and I know you're just been there over the last few days the old city of Jerusalem is one square kilometer so it is in that one square kilometer you have some of the holiest places to the three major monotheistic Abraham at faith's until Israel was in control it was a constant process of somebody being up somebody being down someone be inter out and now you go there and you know there's millions of pilgrims coming every year to the city of Jerusalem and there are all you know in this tiny little spot the role worshipping their faiths peacefully no other occasional flare ups rarely but they're also handles you know promptly and you mainly it's a it's it's a miracle what's happening in Jerusalem and it's only happening because the Israelis for the first time in history a no in a very very long in ancient history have managed to balance the the competing interests in a way that everybody gets to come and visit and safety we were at an event together among others city David yes why we we there and what is the city of David well hi the city of David is a once in a century archaeological discovery and you know one thing you need to understand about the Jewish history of Jerusalem it's an unpleasant history because almost everything Jewish a batch Roussel has been destroyed over the last three thousand years the first temple was destroyed by the Babylonians the second temple was destroyed by the Romans more recently synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians when they had control of Jerusalem so a lot of our history and I'm speaking now as a sort of rabbi in a Jew whatever history is buried and and so when we find it it's very meaningful to us because we have a long proud ancient history documented in the Bible and the city of David discovery really brings the Bible back to life because in a started when a the sewage pipe broke in a neighborhood in when they came to fix it they realize what they were sitting on top of it's in the first place it's a large almost no one big size pool call the pool of Siloam school break out the local group and that's where all the pilgrims from all around of the world many Jewish many not Jewish because non Jews also came to Jerusalem three times a year for the major Jewish festivals they would all purify themselves in this pool and once they saw the pool it was significantly down hill from the temple they kept looking they said well it had to be a way for them to get from the pool to the temple and they saw a completely intact underground underground wrote with the same flagstones that appear up by the the walls of the old city and what they discovered was the actual road from the pool that ascended up to the temple that all the pilgrims and you know but Josephus writes that is what they were like two and a half million a year coming to Jerusalem this is where they walked in this of course would include Jesus who came to the temple as a Jew during the holidays and you know his attendance at the temples well documented and and numerous writings so you have the ability in this archaeological finds not just to look at a broken shard of glass origination point actually immerse yourself in history twenty five hundred years ago two thousand years ago and to walk the road that you know the ancient Jewish people the ancient civilizations I had the privilege to walk and it's it's it's something like nothing else I've ever seen and you were there other dignitaries from America were there yes and what did the New York time say batch it definitely wasn't good I think they said I had taken a sledgehammer to diplomacy I recall something like that silly I use this us of course I was criticized by because the New York times in many of their many of their sympathizers think that there's something wrong with a covering Jewish history in Jerusalem closer to offend non Jews at doesn't think Christian so they think it'll offend those of the of the Muslim faith that somehow we will be discovering ancient artifacts of the Jewish people I want to continue with this as well as other matters when we return because the real reason they didn't want this known a reported as the

"But Martin van Buren has been proposed and Hummel's argument is that then Puran was was was the best president because he, he resolutely supported the free market in the constitution at a time when every incentive existed for him to do otherwise. His his, his banking policies introduced what, what is arguably the greatest banking system monetary system in the United States has ever had. He also managed to avoid not one, but two unnecessary wars one with Mexico and one with Britain, which was the effect of particular significance. When we recall what the founders often said about war, and its tendency to undermine free societies. Now where does poor van Buren wind up in the presidential polls. Well, he lacked vision, I suppose, but he kept the country at peace and was resolutely committed to the constitution. Come, what may in nineteen forty eight. He was number fifteen out of twenty nine presidents nineteen sixty two he was seventeen out of thirty one and in two thousand five he was twenty seven out of forty one Arthur, Schlesinger junior complained that van Buren lacked, executive energy. Another historian described van Buren inaugural address as quote, essentially a charter for inaction by hardly need to point out. Those are bad things to the official historians who rank our presidents for us, now, the consistently low rankings of presidents like Ulysses grant, or president, we discussed today. Warren Harding are due in part to the corruption associated with their administrations now to a certain degree. That's all well and good. But what is the teapot, dome scandal compared to Woodrow Wilson's catastrophic decision in the face of strong popular opposition to involve the United States in world? War one, a horrific conflict. The very least Wilson's decision it has been argued pave the way for the ultra nationalist policies of Adolf, Hitler and the Nazis who protested punitive Versailles treaty that the allies would never have been in a position to impose without American assistance. Yet. Wilson is consistently ranked among America's best presidents. Forget the foreign policy disasters. He was responsible for the historians. Hold seem to be saying, and forget the American deaths is decisions caused the man had vision. Well, this brings us to the twenties and Harding, and Coolidge because what we'll find is although they did do more domestically than people realize in terms of building up government. The fact is that they were by twentieth. Century standards, relatively inactive and they're therefore, we're supposed to hate them in rank of low. But again, that's an ideological judgment. Okay. If you want to decide which are the best presidents, you have to decide that on the basis of your own views, and what these people did when they were in office, and whether or not they conform to your views. Well, there's a lot of scandal mongering. We could talk about with, with Harding, official scandals and personal scandals. But I hate to being a scandal longer. You know, the guy's dead. Now as it is I already condemned him in the book, you know. So let's not dwell on that too long. It is interesting to know that on two occasions, when he confronted people who had been engaged in corrupt behavior under his presidency. People went and, and committed suicide after confrontations with with Harding's. So apparently, he could be quite rough on people. But what I wanna point out focus on stead is one. In fact, he did what he did do economically. So I want to focus on the tax policies of the twenties, because they are they are worth revisiting. I mean, it seems like nothing could be less relevant than the tax policy, the twenties. But let's remember that during World War, One, the top income tax rate had been increased from seven percent to seventy three percent. Now I've got I've got students in an online course that I teach. And they all they're always flattering themselves about how wise they all are they're saying they were saying at one point. Well, we know that in our country, we would never tolerate tax rates of fifty or sixty percent. Of course, we would I said, not only would you, but you did for many years in American history. That rates were very, very high. I gave the example of in Britain, the top rate at one point was ninety five percent. That was a, a democracy..

That's you know, Buddhism is about letting go of attachments, but in the west we're like no got to have my attachment. I gotta remember when I was and everybody somebody famous. You're always Cleopatra or Alexander. The great you're never just some peasants daughter who died of collar at age five or Cleopatra's like handmaiden. Nobody's. So so bold. Jason you feel like nobody actually claims to be the celebrity it's more like Cleopatra. But they could definitely be like the minister of transportation for Cleopatra's public admin sector theory is that you know, the the lull between lives should be short, which means if we're reincarnated as somebody famous if we were somebody famous in a pass like it would be whoever died immediately before our birthday. So I actually looked up to see who died right before I was born in seventy four right. And it's kind of a celebrity waistline. You have to go back a full month before you come across either bud abbot of Abacus Stella I could be bothering Carnegie. That's not unlikely or Agnes Moorehead from Orson Welles theater company. And also. Endore on bewitched. So I could be a ground-breaking lesbian dowager actress or a couple of days before I was born the symbionese Liberation Army killed a bunch of LAPD coughs and some awful shootout. So I could be I could have been a cop murdered by the symbionese Liberation Army. Well, I was born in. What's your birthday, I was born in nineteen sixty eight which was a very auspicious year four famous people dying. That was great. If you can remember remember the good days with let's see. I mean, let's assume that I'm not Martin Luther King or Robert anyone who has met. You will assume you're not I don't know about Robert Kennedy. There could be Robertson's your dad like campaign for Bobby dad and Bobby did not get along. But he did dead dead like John dead worked for JFK. And he thought that Bobby was was a real jerk went on three born. So I was born in September. And unfortunately here in my list of famous deaths, there's a huge empty spot right there in August and September. I'm the same way. So what's your what's your birthday? I should know this it it just happened. Just happened. It's late September. Then mid-september, you do I want people to know your birthday because because then they give me all the like happy birthday. So I mean, Robert F Kennedy died in June of sixty eight. So let's assume I'm RFK it's got now it's got to be more recent than that, you know, who died just a few weeks before I mean. Westwood gumri. And but that's still in June. Ulysses s grant the third died, August twenty ninth don't think I'm Ulysses s grant the third reincarnated. You don't think you were the grandson of Ulysses grant, he's some kind of army corps of engineers guy. I would beat the ghost of the grandson of Louis. Newest he's asked grant, I feel like RFK could have spent a little bit of time. There purgatory Alie around I figured it out July twenty eighth auto Han German. Discover of won.

"Incredible now you'd think, well, that's bad stuff. You probably shouldn't call a confederate leader. Incredible. It is true. By the way, the robbery was a good general. I don't think great general, but he's good general. That doesn't mean that he was a good person or that he believed good things, but that was the headline for NBC news. The headline for NBC news is that Trump said the robbery was a great general and called the confederate leader. Incredible. Now, here is what president from actually said about robbery. Here's the clip of President Trump talking and one day it was looking really bad. And linkages said, you hardly knew his name and they said, don't take him. He's got a drinking problem. And Lincoln said, I don't care what problem as you guys are winning. And his name was grant general grid. And Lincoln said, I don't care enough hallock frankly, give me six or seven more just like, okay, so there's Trump actually talking about Brent when he was saying, is that Robert E Lee was a great general who's overcome by grant. He was not saying that robbery lose a wonderful wonderful person standing for wonderful thing. So NBC has to actually correct it. So Trump tweets, this out. He says, you guys, you got this wrong, he got this wrong. So here's President Trump's tweet. NBC news has totally purposely changed the put and meaning of my story about generally rabbit Aley and general. Ulysses grant was actually a shoutout to warrior grant and the great state in which he was born as usual diz, honest reporting, even mainstream media embarrassed. NBC had this weed a correction. They tweeted out a full correction correction in earlier tweet misidentified the general President Trump described as incredible at a rally in Ohio. It was general Ulysses s grant not general Robert Lee and attach video clip lacked the full context. Trump's remark here is the full clip. It took NBC news, two full days tr- attracted to full days. And that wasn't the only example of ridiculous media bias in the last forty eight hours. So CBS tweeted this out about President Trump on sixty minutes. Last night. President Trump was on sixty minutes. Here's what they tweeted. They tweeted President Trump on his treatment of Christine blazey Ford at rally, the accuser of just now Justice, Brad Kavanagh.
