Fresh update on "united states" discussed on Bloomberg Businessweek

"News and Nancy Lyon. She is in D.C.. Hey Nancy. Thanks, Carol. Up until now President Biden has been reticent to back efforts to eliminate the Senate filibuster and move toward requiring a simple majority for passage of legislation, but that's now changed with the overturning of roe V wade. Before leaving the NATO summit in Madrid, Biden said the ruling was not only harmful to Americans, but also damaging to the country's reputation. The one thing that has been destabilizing is the outrageous behavior of the Supreme Court of the United States. An overruling, not only roe V wade, but essentially challenging the right to privacy. Biden calls the abortion ruling a mistake, he says exceptions should be carved out concerning the filibuster. And its final rulings of the term, the Supreme Court today, said the EPA does not have the authority to force power plants to adopt new cleaner technologies to curb greenhouse gases. It's seen as a victory for coal mining companies. Russia has pulled troops from a key island in the Black Sea, Ukraine says its missile and artillery strikes force the retreat. The Kremlin is calling it a gesture of goodwill to keep grain exports moving, Bloomberg's Maria taddeo reports this could be met with skepticism. The last time Russia says was pulling back troops, it was a Ukrainian capital. It was Kyiv and the reason why that happened is not goodwill or the fact that Russians wanted to deescalate because they've done the opposite. It was the fierce resistance of being encountered by the Ukrainian army, which is a professionally trained army now for 8 years and they can put up a fight.

Grand Theft Auto: Capitol City?

"Here's Cassidy Hutchinson saying that Donald Trump tried to create a new saga in the Grand Theft Auto series, otherwise known as Grand Theft Auto capital city. Play cut 70. Tony described him as being irate, the president said something to the effect of, I'm the effing president, take me up to the capitol now to which Bobby responded, sir, we have to go back to the west wing. The president reached up towards the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. Mister engel grabbed his arm, he said, sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel. We're going back to the west wing. We're not going to the capitol. Mister Trump then used his free hand to lunge towards Bobby angle and this one mister ornata had recounted the story to me. He had motioned towards his clavicles. So that's a really serious accusation, right? I mean, you have a president of the United States that assaults the Secret Service agents. I mean, that's serious. I mean, wow. And by the way, who uses the word clavicles. Assaulted me in the clavicles, the first thing you say, wait, is that like super anatomically specific, by the way? Unless you're trained to say that she was trained in coached, I think, to say that. So okay, fine. She says this, super serious accusation. And I knew it as soon as I heard, it's just like, there's no way that's true. No way. I've been in the beast. You can't do that. And by the way, it's just not something I believe Donald Trump would do otherwise.

Mark Walters: Latest Gun Reform Will Do Nothing to Stop Crime

"And I see so many conservatives back down on this issue, hence 14 or 15 GOP senators, Mark Walters, your comment. Yeah, now you're talking about the quote unquote gun control bill that came out of the Senate. Ironic that we saw that bill passed within two days of the release of the New York case. What this did, why people are so upset about this. Why people in my circles are so upset about this gun rights activists is because we had senators in the Republican Party, corn and in particular and McConnell in particular who have now cracked the door open because and I want to put it in perspective for listeners without getting too complicated. I want to make this as simple as possible to understand because it really is basic. What you have here is not benign. It's not not sweeping gun control legislation. It is very sweeping because we have in here the red flag. Now it's not a federal red flag. It's a bribe to the states to incentivize the states by feeding them money to institute red flags, which are unconstitutional on their surface because in the United States, we do not make accusations against people and then take their things from them without due process of law. We can not add due process to a process that is unconstitutional to begin with. I hope that makes sense. Now, why did Murphy, who I believe pulled a brilliant political maneuver here, the Democrats did when they began quote unquote negotiating with Republicans about this bill, why did they pull off the two things they wanted were at the top of their wish list. A ban of firearms ownership under 21 and a quote unquote, assault weapons ban using their phrase liberally just because that's the way they phrased it in the media. So everybody understands what we're talking about. Why did they back off of those? Because these individuals know that this bill will do absolutely nothing.

How the Supreme Court Won the Election for Donald Trump

"Now, governor Tate raised, we got a minute left. I want to cover the gun control case. New York's law was struck down. I do not believe Mississippi is one of the 6 other states that had discretion vested in bureaucrats as to whether or not to issue a carry pyramid in the event of someone concerned about their safety. What was your reaction to that decision by the Supreme Court? It's another win for the Second Amendment is another win for the United States Constitution. And that's one of the things that when the former president was elected in 2016, he put people only United States Supreme Court as you'll recall, that was a major issue in that campaign. Decided it. And won him the election, do you agree with me on that? I think that's exactly right. And the president did exactly what he said it was going to do. And what the American people said that they wanted him to do. And that is the appointed people to the court that can read the constitution and they can give the rights back to the people. And to our, in our case and the Dallas case to allow for the elected representatives to allow democracy to work in the case of abortions and other areas. And so I thought it was a great win for and I'm hoping today that the states get another great win in the EPA case because they don't have the authority to regulate and Congress ought to do its job, not EPA, make up rules.

"The southern border and also recruitment of new people into border patrol is the great Chad wolf. Chad, welcome to the program. Yeah, well, thanks for having me, Charlie. So Chad, let me read a headline here, which is just it's so alarming when I read this. I said, well, I had to reread it because we have all these stories printed out. And I was doing so many different things. I said, what on earth? I said 46 people dead in a Texas tractor trailer. Now, I've been to the border a couple times. I'm far from an expert. I'm a layman on this. 46 people, what the hell is going on on the southern border? Well, it's pretty bad. And this is a particularly bad incident that occurred. It's just outside of San Antonio where what appears to be a number of illegal aliens who came across that border illegally were in the back of a tractor trailer truck and obviously the heat in South Texas is pretty pretty unbearable this time of year. And unfortunately, those individuals, some of those individuals passed away. But I think what it shows you is the incentive factor that this administration's policies along that border have caused, right? Where individuals from all across the world, but particularly in Mexico and Central America and other places are trying to get to the United States as quickly as they can under a Biden administration policies because they know if they get here, then they have a very good chance of staying in remaining here in the United States, despite having no legal reason to remain here because of this administration's policy. So I think unfortunately you're going to see more and more types of these incidents as we go forward. So here's what first of all, I just want to

What's Driving the Increase in Firearm Sales?

"It says the spread of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus pandemic has changed the way normal life functions for America, compounding by the national protests over racial injustice and police brutality many black Americans have been advocating for the purchase of firearms to protect for protection amid the current political climate. Think about this for a minute. Black ownership of guns go up as Black Lives Matter. Go out and burn up cities. Isn't that interesting that they blame white people, but yet Black Lives Matter cause black people to get guns out of fear. Overall gun sales have been surging across the United States according to the. Brookings institution nearly 3 million firearms have been purchased since March when the public health crisis caused the shutdown of major cities across the United States of America to research also shows that since March 13 are 13th when Trump first declared that the viral outbreak was a national emergency firearm sales increased significantly over the next two weeks climbing as high as a 176,000 orders on March 16th alone.

And Nancy Pelosi controls the federal capital police and therefore they report it to her and why they did not want it I would leave it to the political experts I'm a national security guide but they seem to be worried about the optics just like they were worried about the optics of Lafayette square though there was the hypocrisy of their way And they also could have put up a no crime fence around the capitol They failed to do that And they failed that federal law enforcement there surrounding the capital such as the FBI and DHS They failed to do a great many things that would have been very simple to do

The Administration Is Doubling Down on Green Energy Projects In... Angola?

"Instead of actually focusing on the United States of America, we have Biden talking about how green a country like Angola can be. Listen to him talking about the importance of it here first. We need worldwide effort to invest in transformative clean energy projects. If you ensure that critical infrastructure is resilient to changing climate, critical materials are necessary for our clean energy transition. Okay, okay, so it's critical. It's critical. We need the materials. We need to make sure it all happens. And this is why we're focusing on Angola. For example, U.S. government just facilitated a new partnership between two American firms and the government of Angola to invest $2 billion in building a new solar projects in Angola. It's a partnership that will help Angola made his climate goals and energy needs while creating new markets for American technologies and good jobs and Angola and I suspect throughout Africa. Great. Great. Okay, I'm really happy for Angola. And that's great to see that the U.S. is working with Angola and these other companies and investing $2 billion there so they can have green energy. Look, I'm not trying to make light of that. I'm actually a big believer in having U.S. presence in a lot of places that are rich resources that would benefit us and I'd certainly like to see us there before the Chinese. However, at a time like this, when Americans are really, really struggling, why not have the green energy companies

That could not be further from the truth. And you might, if you listen to someone like AOC or big chief Warren, and never listen to AOC or big G four. But if you happen to, you might think that the Supreme Court took unto itself more power. He did the opposite. This is not the jobs is not about the Supreme Court taking power.

They have burned whatever legitimacy they may still have had after their gun decision after their voting decision after their union decision. They just took the last of it and set a torch to it. With the roe versus wade opinion. I believe we need to get some confidence back in our court. And that means we need more justices on the United States Supreme Court. There it is. There it is.

Dinesh Never Thought He Would Witness Life After Roe

"I mean, I came to the United States in 1978, row was, I guess, at that point, 5 years old. It had been passed in 1973. So my entire adult lifetime in the United States role has been you may say the law of the land. It was an illicit law, and it legitimate law that never was a constitutional right to abortion. But nevertheless, there it was as a practical matter we were living under roe. And only now can we say and I didn't even think this would, this would happen, probably not even in my lifetime. Then we would be living life after row. But that is the United States today. And it is a momentous shift, something that had been almost, you may say, not only in law, but law ultimately makes its way into the culture. People have certain cultural expectations or I got pregnant. Okay, that's fine. I'll go have an abortion. That became a sort of are you going to have an abortion? This kind of question suddenly now becomes problematic. In other words, it's not that aboard the abortion that you won't be able to get an abortion in the United States. That's not the case. Some people are acting like that is the case. And I think it's kind of, it's almost amusing to have all these people in blue states, protests and places like Portland, Oregon, California, New York, D.C., people screaming. Oh, my right to an abortion. And yeah, there's almost no question that they will be allowed to have abortions in those states.

Thirty eight the. Us supreme court has complete authority over all federal courts. It's rulings have a significant effect. A supreme court ruling can affect the outcome of many cases in the lower courts. The supreme court's interpretations of federal laws and of the constitution our final. The supreme court is limited in its power over the states. It cannot make decisions about state law or state constitutions. The court can decide that a state law or action conflicts with federal law or with the us constitution. If this happens the state law becomes invalid. The supreme court case ruling marbury versus madison established this power known as a judicial review. The supreme court also rules on cases about significant social and public policy issues that affect all americans.

It's like you're dami. I've spent my life around animals. Of every kind i'd lived in alaska. I've been around bears. Wolves every animal known to mankind.

She was taking him to the vet to get neutered. She was just a volunteer. It was taken him in for an organization to get neutered and she for whatever reason she thought she could carry him from the parking lot to the vet clinic and of course he went crazy scraper all up and he was gone vanished and she gone contacted me and i told her everything she had to do. This was somewhere right in the middle of los angeles near downtown and she never gave up on this cat. One lead after one tip after another after another after another after another and talk to her.

"Emissions reductions on climate change to oil refinery. It's in a highway bill. Here's the crucial guys. Well senator capito who's the ranking member environment. Public works joe. Manchin talked to his office every week. He is the king maker on this because he's a democrat from west virginia which is very conservative state in. He's not shy about sort of stake in his claim early. Completely change in bank so on the democrat side. We'd look for the moderates on these issues. So it's the mansions cinemas the testers. Exxon is even trying to get through to president biden through his friend. Senator chris coons damning as more a bit willing to the full thing on the show notes for episode which you can find our patriots page it just astounding to me that our leaders plan to do nothing about climate change. The colleagues of mansion cinema mark. Kelly chris coons should be protesting them in their office because their sentencing us to die their sentencing more species to extinction. This is blood on their hands. All for exxon. This is not a new problem. Certainly by any means the longtime former. Ceo of exxon rex. Tillerson was of course trump's secretary of state which was shocking which was absolutely not normal as ceo of exxon tillerson pushed through iraqi oil deal. That threatened american foreign policy at the time. That was just the tip of the iceberg for exxon from the washington. Post the world's largest oil firm. Exxon has long exercised formidable clout in countries where it does business. The company has not shied away from controversy inking deals with autocratic governments and speaking out against sanctions such as those united states has imposed on russia. That hurt its bottom line and quote. We certainly saw that with putin giving tillerson an order of friendship medal. So who was it that pushed for tillerson to become trump's secretary of state former secretary of state condoleeza rice and former secretary of defense robert gates tillerson was their longtime client paying rice and gates for consulting services as the saying goes money. Money money at the expense of human lives at the expense of a livable planet at the expense of our children's future. Republicans more than the kremlin turned america into a struggling democracy like ukraine stressed by a losing war against corruption. Republicans held the door. Open for the kremlin and the kremlin walked right in. They put their free market ideology above national sovereignty literally selling out our country and its best interest for profit condoleeza rice promoted and endorsed the exxon ceo to be secretary of state while promoting her own book on democracy. So what kind of future do we have if we continue down this path of letting exxon by public servants by endorsements from former major government officials putin's russia paints it out clearly according to propublica from a piece last year russia welcomes the warmer planet because the melting ice will make room for more farmland in russia and open the arctic up for ships and drilling russia's literally already planning to benefit from a warming planet. Their plan is to become an agricultural powerhouse. with all this new thaad farmland. Okay so if you're wondering how putin and mansion and these exxon executives can stand to be on the side of leading our world literally burn. It's because they imagine a future where their precious sacred free market ideology will help them. Continue to thrive. This is known as disaster. Capitalism so of russia becomes an agricultural powerhouse. What will happen to current agricultural powerhouse california. It may likely be on fire so the tens of millions of americans who currently vote for exxon by boating republican and promoter. Democrats imagine cinema..

"He was in the presidency. This excuse you know that. The chief executive is by definition above the law that he can't be indicted you know using the o. Elsie memo getting his lackeys. Everybody from muller to bar to various other governmental officials to say yes. Yes we can't prosecute them and now they're going back to a defense that relies on utterly outdated norms of okay. He's not the president anymore. He's a private citizen and we still can't prosecute him in. We're in fact going to defend him in personal lawsuits like say for rape. That is the merrick garland doj position on trump. The cumulative effect of that is as andrea just said confirmation that we're living in a mafia state But what's worse you know. We're living in a mafia state where people Who either were elected themselves or were appointed to be in positions of power by those who voted for like. We voted for joe biden. Joe biden appointed. Merrick garland merrick. Garland is defending. Donald trump. know it's voluntary submission. It's holding up this deeply. Rotted and corrupt institution. And that's why. Just everything about the allen weasel berg case like i don't know i read the coverage that i'm just rolling my eyes. Because of the declining standards of expectations which people create in order to fulfil their own fantasies of what is going on in our criminal justice system as it has to do with white collar crime and with organized crime and with this nexus of it in our government that revolves around the trump family. The weasel berg indictment reminded me a great deal. Honestly of the manafort indictment so it's appropriate You know you brought that up black ledgers matter. Whatever but anyway the thing that reminded me of it most was that the indictment covers the years. Two thousand five to twenty seventeen. Which again just like manafort. This is scratching the surface of decades and decades of organized crime and criminal infiltrations and front organisations and people like weasel burger to sort of sit in the background. And you know keep the records. People like manafort that function as dark arts operatives and then there's the front man and his show man in the spotlight and that's trump and then of course the scope of the indictment is also quite limited You know it's about you know off. The books taxes a refusal to pay the full amount of taxes. I think it is unlikely. He's going to face prosecution. I kind of wonder about the photos of him in which he is hands are behind his back as if he's having a perp walk but you can see that he's not hancuffed that there's just kind of he's he's literally holding his own hangups in his hands which to me is just this incredible symbolism of what the trump crime coal is. It's like they hold the handcuffs of justice. They hold the power of the law in their own hands to bend it and manipulate it towards their own. Corrupt nefarious aims and as the decades went on this became more and and more ingrained into the broader american politics like it started smaller in new york city. But you know. Trump's spread out throughout the eighties. He came out. You know to the area of the country where i live You know places in the midwest like you had partners like carl. Icahn bankrupting cities in indiana. You know buying out. Twa here in saint louis. All these dirty deals were happening. It's part of the broader wall street. Takeover of the american economy and of small businesses and of the infiltration or collaboration really of all street and organized crime and the trump organization is just the prime example of that and the fact that it took this long that it is now twenty. Twenty one and weasel burgas been working for trump since the seventies and trump has been committing crimes seventies again. This reminds me of manafort who had begun his crime spree. You know at least in the early eighties. The same is true cursive roger stone and others who trump went onto pardon But yeah to your point that the litmus test of whether we live in an entrenched mafia state is whether ivanka and jared kushner are indicted that still stands. You know and i'm honestly more worried about kushner. Because i feel like with ivanka. There's still this perception of. Oh you know. The president's daughter the president's daughter who worked on the corona virus task force team that led to the deaths of half a million americans the president's daughter who helped create and cover up at points the existence of migrant torture and abuse camps aimed at children the president's daughter who backed violent white supremacists on it. I mean she was an employee of the white house. She a key adviser of the president. She should not be treated with kid gloves. Ivanka trump represented america on the global stage. Yeah a sitting next to merckel a light eaters. Yes she was it was ivanka. Jared and donald trump. They were together. The unholy trinity. The defacto pressure united states those three yep and that was the heart of the trump campaign. it was ivanka. and jared. who said yala's have paul manafort be the campaign run the campaign. Yeah and the difference though is that with with trump even though it is not a legitimate excuse you hear the excuse of the american people elected him. He was the president. He held the office. Ivanka were inserted into that office illegally. It broke nepotism laws. It broke security clearance laws like they could have removed. Jared kushner and ivanka both for lying on their security clearance forms. Jared kushner is the record breaker like literally in american history for lying on that clearance form. All they had to do to get rid of it was was get them on that and then you could have pulled him out. And what kind of country would we have had. What kind of foreign affairs situation would we have now in the middle east. What kind of reaction to the corona virus would we have had who would have been appointed to various positions. I mean you can really trace so many of the most malicious and anti-american corrupt actions of that administration to jared kushner and believe me. There's a lot of competition here. Like there steve bannon. There's michael flynn there. There's bill bar. There are a lot of some of the worst americans of my lifetime. We're all working in that white house simultaneously. Kushner still wins and he is treated as immune. He is currently working in fact with the democratic party. He is partnering with haim sabban. Who is one of the leading. Democratic donors and haim subodh of course. We've referenced him because pelosi back in late twenty eighteen had this very cavalier. Public conversation with haim sabban bond where she said if our capital crumbles to the ground our foremost priority is going to be israel. And you know that that's a slight paraphrase. We'll post the video on our show notes. We've played this clip on the show. Before for those who don't think it's real. Because of course then the capital crumble and her priority was indeed israel in haim sedan was an enthusiastic proponent of that way of thinking about america and what's important and who to protect me i found it frightening and baffling at the time because to me. The capital crumbling is terrifying and horrifying prospect at the time in two thousand eighteen. It brought to mind nine eleven. And so when there's a terrorist attack or any kind of attack in my country like my instinct is to protect people. It's wanna protect all fellow americans. It's hundred protect our national security. Our public safety certainly not to laugh about it from a donor and certainly not the pledge allegiance to a foreign country and here the matters not quite so much that it's israel but that it could have been any foreign country she could have inserted in that sentence and it would have been a horrifying sentence anyway back to kushner. That's what kushner is doing now. He's writing a book. He's working with democratic party. Donors who define themselves as haim sibon does is one issue donors with the issue being israel. I have a feeling he's probably you know working with his old. You know family friend. Benjamin netanyahu because the kushner's the netanyahu's go back multiple generation who yahoo suddenly has a lot of free time on his hands a lot of free time. And so we're in this weird situation. Where yes you know. Israel got rid finally of their worse. Worst kleptocratic mobbed up node in this syndicate. I do not like their new prime minister. Naftali bennett because of his policies policies towards palestinians. But it's sort of like replacing trump with mike pence. You're just getting a different kind of person with a different kind of network. And so yes you know. There were protests against netanyahu for over half a year for very good reason and it is good that he is out but i don't trust that he's gone away the same way..

Five and so little backstory. My my good friend. Catherine parsons going back to the tubs. Fire two thousand seventeen. She and i became acquainted from my work. At the tubs fire. And she decided she was going to produce and make a documentary film called. The fire cast of santa rosa. So catherine started on that project in people say. Oh yeah you get this fire and We'll just be in and out in a month or two in like no. It doesn't work that way. Efforts go on for a long long time like a year two years three years. I mean it just goes on and on doesn't end doesn't end so catherine came down from. She's from canada. Toronto came down hard. Some simple talk offers and shot footage and all that was sort of in post production from the fire cast of santa rosa and then november ninth two thousand and eighteen. The campfire broke out and that changed everything so her project then became a completely different animal for the film which was renamed the fire cats so so catherine already friends by then. He spent a lot of time in person visiting and so she hired a a cinematographer a well known drones. Cinematographer named douglas thron. And when a campfire broke out so the day that fire broke out. I was working my second job where i teach at a police academy. I'm a firearms. Instructor is a part time job. And that morning i remember shooting on the to arrange in the morning and around nine thirty in the morning we took a break in the wind was swirling. It was just kind of weird weather like what we all describe as earthquake weather right right. 'cause i grew i grew up in southern california child. Okay i know that whether it was just had a weird vibe myself and might fifteen recruits. Were sitting outside just taking a break in a wind swirling and i looked to the east mountain and napa county called mount saint i saw little darks smudge over the backside of it looked at it and i looked down. I said that looks like smoke. And it looked at it. And i said no that smoke dish those clauses at that smoke but judging by the wind at sea level where i was at which is basically sea level looking to the east and i knew that smoke was coming from a long ways away in the mountains. We'd had those offshore winds goes northeast. Winds and i looked data my sought growing and i look at him. I said you're looking at the beginnings of a monster. That's the exact phrase. I used and they were like y'all. You're smoking your socks. So i got on my iphone. And i punched in fire in california and i saw the campfire in paradise unfolding on media and i immediately contacted catherine the call katherine paradise on. She should oh. My god. And i said i'm going so she hired douglas. The cinematographer joined me. I think on day six. I'd already been inside working. I was able to get into this terrible nightmare. Were authorities were not letting trained rescuers in this was a monumental amount of casualties felines alone was in the thousands and they were not letting anybody in but this one particular organization which i will not name that ended up turning into a complete nightmare and i was getting with my credentials and so i was able to for the first few days.

"So in the beginning of every fire I have worked on and to date. I've worked six major western. Us wildfires cal northern california oregon so for example. The campfire which the campfire was in paradise was the mother of all fires. Took out that town. Fifteen thousand five hundred homes and an entire city wiped right off the map. Right of human souls lost in thousands and thousands of this place in las cats burned injured. Show i arrived at the campfire on day. Five and was able to gain entry due to my law enforcement. Profession and i got in there as social media was pulling up the lost and found pages on facebook 'cause by then people can already knew what i did and i had you know people that were reporting their loss kastner addresses and show don day one and two. I'd already had a list of addresses but at that point it was about triage. It was about getting there and start looking for burned up cats right. And that's what i did for the first couple of nights and then i had. We started to get more intel more addresses like his arcadia. Get pictures and i just would take. You know hundreds of pages of notes this address this cat. And then i would start making my rounds working at night and cruising around with the thermal scope at my pickup truck with all my gear. And you're traversing all across the city. And anytime i saw a cat anywhere. I would try and get as close to it as i could out food and water and then make make a notation back out and go looking for cast. Were obviously burned injured in trying to get them and then get to the other. The the known cat addresses and so they develop took the and the people were mapping into research so many people involved behind the scenes. It's just crazy how some we'd learned so much during the campfire because it was just a gigantic followed you on that on social media. Yeah that was That was a life changing experience. It's an emotional thing for you. I can hear it in. Oh yeah what are these cats like when you finally do trap them because you know they've been domestic cats they've been involved in a family then they go through something. None of us should ever go through. So they're totally traumatized. they've been trapped are they. I i know every cat has different personality wise and experience wise but are they friendly at all when you get a hold of them or are they just crazy. I'm over very you know it just depended but very often there were very vocal. I mean some catches screaming screaming in the traps just scared to.

Do it for money. Three and a half years ago some three and a half years ago almost four years ago. Yeah almost four years ago. Wow now you actually go into. Fire burn areas after the fires are out because when a fire comes through you can probably grab your dog but good luck getting your cats exactly yup precisely and you actually find them. How did you learn all these techniques that you use. Well tammy was an interesting genesis to my entry into the world of distress displaced feline. Search and rescue so in October eighth of two thousand seventeen. We had the biggest and most destructive wildfires in california history at the time was the tubs fire mma county and two thousand seventeen which was right here in in my community. The night that fire broke out. I was actually a patient enlarge hospital in santa rosa where had been admitted due to complications from brain surgery. So i was in the hospital in awoken at four in the morning with the nurse screaming tonight face saying get up get out the hospitals about the burn up a walk out into a firestorm of fire on three sides and they tried to evacuate me on a bus for another hospital and i said i'm not getting on your bus and i'd just promptly left a girlfriend was heather was become grabbed. Me up took a couple of hours to get me because of the craziness of the fire and people just running and driving in every conceivable direction to escape the flames and we'll we got home at six thirty that morning.

Do you know how many animals and cats are going to be burned up lost and scared and gone so backing up about year and a half earlier one of my indoor only kitty cats. A cat named kate escaped our house and vanished without a trace for thirteen days and nights in. That was the genesis of how i started to learn about las cats and behavior and how to find them and rescue them and Of course in the first few days. I did everything wrong in a few things right and eventually i hired a woman who's considered one of the best lost cat fighters in the country if not the world and through that ordeal and it was horrible. My felines my family. They're in my life blood. They mean everything to me. And i make no apology because a lot of people like it's just a cat and if anyone ever says it's just a cat and i said look i don't. We have anything to talk about. And i just known..

I need to get the flatter eminem. I don't think. I could probably come close to hundred by these very proud of his achievement of being able to balance. I think the number. I don't even know if he gave the number but he took pictures so someday we'll get to see a photo of a whole much little eminem's lined up on hunters meaner but that's for another day. Hunter will continue to provide material for the rest the rest of my life. I'm sure but This this woman glen berry. She'll have one day. I assume it's just one day. We'll fly to tokyo. Probably a charter jet and again put her up and feed her and then she'll throw the stupid hammer. She'll get interviewed probably more than any other hammer. Throwers everybody viewed. And they'll give her a chance and that's okay. The media will give her a chance to tell the world how much america sucks and how much she hates this country. That is flying her all the way around the world to throw a stupid punk metal. It's just it just. I mean i know she will play herself. She's not very bright. Not pretty thoughtful. It's just george. Floyd and racism this and she cares about black lives just as long in the black lives that are killed by cops doesn't care about black lives that are killed by other people or other black people or violence in her home city of saint. Louis that doesn't matter. It's just about george floyd and for that rea because of george floyd because of derek chauvin. Who's in prison now. For twenty two years because of that she turns her back on the flag in the world gets to watch this and say boy. Hey i wouldn't be surprised if next time putin talks. He'll talk about our athletes Turning their back on the flag and hating on this country. But we have some sound from the lovely gwen berry craig. Wishart do excellence here from gwen. She's just so thoughtful me being able to represent my communities and my people and those who have died at the hands of police brutality those who have died to this system systemic racism after like. That's the important part. Her action only little bit. That is thing wish. He puts lipstick really weird lipstick and then she puts a line from your topline took up or bottom. I don't know if that's you know fashion thing but to those who have died to systemic racism systemic racism. That's what she's going to say. And because of that. And craig and i are looking at a photo over puts her hand on her hip. They give you flowers to by the way something else. I'm sure the taxpayers have to pay flowers for this great. And she just kinda has one arm hanging with the flowers in one hand in hand on the hip and she's like with this disgusted. Look on her face. While the other girls the other women who beat her ass in the hammer throw again on hands over their heart. And these these girls. I think the winner is like dominant. She almost record. She supported gwen just sitting here. She has a right to speak. And all that. And then i guess. I don't blame her. She doesn't wanna fight with this. This this ingrate. She doesn't want to start. Some feud she just wants to throw the stupid hammer and try to get a gold medal and try to win a championship and maybe make a living. I guess you make a living throwing the hammer if you're the best in the world but here's the problem is i wouldn't as a again i wouldn't normally watch wouldn't only care but i want to watch and see her loose because she will lose. Apparently this other women mother big girls around the world to control it. Farther than gwen.

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode one point fifteen the Mayflower combat. Picking up from where we last left off two weeks ago, we had left our settlers hanging out as they began their journey across the Atlantic. This week we are going to pick up with our pilgrims as they make their way across the Atlantic to their new homes, we are gonna spend much of this week focusing on what is often seen as one of the first political documents formed in the North American colonies, specifically the Mayflower compact, the Mayflower compact is often portrayed as this early example of the democratic ideals that will come to find the struggles of the future United States today. I'm gonna focus on some of those early politics amongst the pilgrims. We are going to spend some time looking at the myth of the Mayflower compact and how it is portrayed today. We are going to look at the document itself. And what it did in reality. Finally, we're going to turn back to the Mayflower compact and tried to dissect where the legend surrounded it actually comes from. So then without further delay. Let's just dive right back into our story. Every single year thousands of American school children. Learn about the Mayflower typically around thanksgiving time, we'll Jamestown did proceed Plymouth buy some thirty years. It is the Mayflower that is often presented as being that inaugural trip to the new world for journey that is so central to the majority of the United States. We know shockingly little about it. In fact, most everything that we know about the journey itself comes from William Bradford's writing. And even then Bradford himself is surprisingly quiet on the journey. Ran into the conditions onboard. Bradford does make a brief mention of the combined group now aboard the Mayflower before discussing the general health aboard the ship. There is a mention this. He cygnus was a constant problem and Bradford as always takes the time to tell a charming tale of these special work of God's providence. I'm just gonna go ahead and quote Bradford directly here because frankly, he tells the story better than I ever could. And just a note, you might notice that over the next couple episodes. There is going to be a sharp. Crease in me reading quotes. This isn't really something. I plan to do long term. But when it comes to Plymouth, we are lucky enough to have two excellent primary sources we have Bradford's of Plymouth plantation, which is what I'm about to quote from. And we also have Bradford and Edward winslow's writing in more relations. So as I said don't be shocked when you start hearing an increasing number of quotes for me. I don't think this is going to be long term kind of deal. But let's use what we've got. Okay. Returning to William Bradford talking about conditions on the Mayflower. He says it was a proud and very profane. Young man, one of the seamen a lessee able body which made him all the more haunting e would always become acting on the poor people in their cygnus, cursing them daily with grievous exhortations and did not let to tell them that he hoped to help cast half of them overboard before they came to their journeys in and to make Mary with what they have. And if they were jelly reproved, he would curse and swear most. Bitterly. But it please God before they came half seas over to this young man with a grievous disease of which he died in a desperate manner. And so was himself. The first was thrown overboard, thus his curses light on his own head. And it was an astonishment to all his fellows for they noted. It it had to be the just hand of God upon him. So yeah, that's pretty uplifting story, I bring it up for a couple of reasons I it does give some insight into the state of things aboard the Mayflower. It clues us in that. There was some amount of disease on board. And that death was an actual risk. It's also a good insight into the group itself and gives a working idea of the inner thoughts of Bradford all in all gives us at least some picture of life and the tensions aboard the Mayflower beyond. Just some joyous. Talk of the ships leading jerk getting sick dine in being thrown overboard. Braford? Would also write about what you would probably expect. There's a lot of talk about the dangerous crosswinds seasick. Kness and the general misery that existed onboard Bradford routinely writes about how the settlers survived and kept going forward in the name of God. It is interesting to note that for the most part there isn't much talk about widespread, death and disease. So well, we know that at least one guy did succumb to illness. And it is probably not out of the question that the conditions on board were unless insanitary there does not really seem to be a widespread dying be on. However, there really isn't a ten that we know about the journey itself. Bradford spends only two pages reading about the Mayflower. However through him. We do get an idea of those conditions on November sixteen twenty the Mayflower encountered Cape Cod. Cape Cod was not in a no place upon its discovery. John Smith had founded and named Cape James, however, by the time pilgrim, Scott there the Cape Cod. Name was pretty much accepted. Fishermen had named the area for the large number of cod in the valuable fishing waters. Right off the coast, the journey full had taken sixty. Five days and had landed the pilgrims just in time to face a potential New England winter the first problem that the pilgrims had upon arriving is that they were in the wrong place. Now originally they had planned to set up camp closer to the mouth of the Hudson. Hosver they were a ways north of that. In fact, the settlers were moving towards the Hudson because they didn't actually hold a pattern to settle land in Cape Cod. The ship's captain Christopher Jones recognizing. This fact did attempt to make his way south to the mouth of the Hudson where they were supposed to be however would conditions of the passengers now declining dangerous and uncharted shores and uncooperative wind Jones made the call to return and settle Cape Cod to say that these settlers were upset about

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode one point thirteen medical changes. This is our seventh episode dealing with Jamestown. And I don't know about you guys. But I am ready to move on to different frontiers. The good news is that after this week. That is just what we are going to do however before we can leave Jamestown for good. We need to go back and look at the developments in the colony politically as the colony begins to rapidly grow. The political situation begins to change we see the first forms of government. Come to the colony dri. This period, we are going to discuss the reasons for this. And what it meant for Virginia's a whole following the massacre of sixteen twenty two future. The Virginia company would quickly be drawn into question and by sixteen twenty four the company would meet its ultimate int-. We are going to discuss the change from the Virginia company to the crown Connie with that means for the future of the colony and the future of English colonization. By the end of today, we will be in a position to leave Jamestown behind no longer the struggling colony that we have seen through much of these episodes. But rather a self sufficient Connie that would provide the early base of power in the English North American colonies. We have discussed previously that following the starving time. We see a period of near Marshall oughta go ver in Virginia. We talked about this. If you weeks back when we saw that these new laws have been put into place over with time. A somewhat more relaxed attitudes spread throughout the colony following the end of the first Anglo powder war things Virginia had become relatively peaceful and prosperous for the English with the college being on more stable footing, it proved to be much easier to back down from the previously. Strict rules when Samuel Argyle arrived in the colony take his turn as governor in sixteen seventeen he found that the colony head once again become neglected our goal tried to retain control and issued a new set of stricter laws now over the colonists. Quickly showed their dislike for this following a period of drought after his arrival colonists begin launching accusations at Argyll for embezzling from the stores. Not wanting to let things get out of control yet. Again, the English sent Lord Delaware back free second time, Lord, Delaware, despite all of his efforts really never found that North America agreed with him that much this. I'm however instead of remaining sickly his time in the colony Lord, Delaware, which is go ahead and die on the journey over despite these problems, However, James him was continuing to thrive during this time when captain Yardley return for his second stint, his clone you'll governor and he had been the one who had been replaced by our goal in the first place. The Connie was getting ready to enter into a period of massive growth by this point. The view of the clinic had changed Jason was no longer seen as a place that was simply there to split the local resources of Jamestown become an outpost of England located in the foreign land no longer satisfied with economic gain alone. Virginia was a foothold on the new world a springboard for the English into further endeavors and colonization. One of the problems of the Connie, however, is that his become apparent by the middle part of the sixteen teens that despite relative stability within the colony the population had begun to stagnate is sixteen sixteen there were only three hundred twenty four people living in the colony which is actually slightly down from the years before in sixteen eleven part of the problem is that while the colony had become much more stable. That's the -bility came at the expense of harsh rule from Thomas gates. This means that the stability of the colony was coming at the expense of these harsh living conditions. We have talked about the new laws in the colony and that the colony was essentially under martial law, and it's probably not too shocking that this isn't something that anybody was super excited about the colony was also at this time facing a labour crisis the injured servants who had come over back in sixteen o seven. We're now the end of their period denture. Well, not everybody. I as we move past sixteen fourteen more and more people will begin to earn their freedom. This. This poses a serious issue for the Virginia company, therefore as they are going to face crisis and making sure that people remained within the colony and in just head back to England. A secondary problem existed in the system that the English put in place in sixteen twelve to try to drive more people into the colony in the first place. If you recall in sixteen twelve by making minimum investment in the colony you could have one hundred acres of land. The problem though, is that the Virginia company didn't really have the land offer to fix this problem. The Virginia company turned Edwin send us send us had been one of the initial investors in the Virginia company, and though he would never personally come to Virginia. He always strapped to support the colony from the ground back in London. Well, go any was certainly more stable the task fell to set is to take the Connie to its next face to do this send us hope to make the population of Jamestown more self sustaining send us believe that by increasing the number of people in the colony that it would also move the Connie closer to financial security. Well, stability existed profitability was still. A serious issue for the Virginia company tobacco had become their cash crop. But maintaining the colony was still not really a profitable endeavor. Now, send us knew that the Virginia company did not have the financial ability to entice people to come to colony. Instead, what he did was offer those willing to travel to Virginia special administrative and judicial rights, send us was also actively trying to change the balance in the colony today, the colony has been overwhelmingly male under the leadership of sadness, you start to see more women make their way to the colony. Likewise, Santa's also increased the number of artisans coming over to the colony the hope was that by diversifying the colony's population. You're going to be able to draw even more settlers there. The most influential change during this time. However was the introduction of the Virginia head right system knowing that the shareholders in the company needed some kind of benefit as cash dividends weren't really in the cars at the moment sends introduced the concept of the head right in Virginia. The head rate system instead of being a dividend in cash would provide colonists with a dividend of one hundred acres of land for those who had come to the colony since sixteen sixteen at their own expense. A grant would be given a fifty acres plus an additional fifty acres for each person. They pay to come across the Atlantic as an effort to increase the holdings of the Virginia company. The decision was made that the Len given out would be unplugged separated by approximately ten miles now recall from last week. This is going to be a really big deal. When we start talking about the massacre of sixteen twenty two if you'll recall the distance between the plus is going to make the attack by shakin. Oh that much. More devastating with the growing number of land claims. The decision was also made advant the call into four boroughs.

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode. One point ten the starving time. Less time. We left off discussing those first several years of the Jamestown colony the first several years were conflated inside a majority of the new settlers die due to the harsh conditions and at the same time the relationship between the settlers and local powered and Indians was tented best and downright hostile at worst. By the new sixty-nine? The Connie was approaching what will become the single worst time in the history of the Jimmy Connie up to that date today. This period has become known as the starving time, and is going to signify the low Mark for the colony John Smith by the same had left the colony and relations with powered into becomes so bad that is John Ratcliffe skinned alive in December of sixty nine combined with the ongoing issues of survey shin disease is going to see the population of the colony plummet the stirring time very nearly marks. The end of the Jamestown colony the colonists. At one point abandoned, the colony and make their way to ships having had enough trying to survive in Virginia. Of course today, we know that they don't end up actually leaving in fact, following the speed the colony will very slowly at times, turn the corner and begin moving towards something that resembles viable settlement for today. We are going to spend our time looking at the starving time. Specifically, I wanna look at three primary aspects. I we're. Going to look at the traditional telling of the story of that winter of sixty-nine sixteen ten what were the causes? How bad did it get and how did it? Resolve second. We are going to discuss the realities of the starving time. I plan on looking at the question of how accurate is that traditional telling? And what problems may exist with it? Finally, we're going to look at the end result. The starving time is going to have a major effect on the colony in a number of ways, and we are going to examine how these changes moving. Forward are going to completely change the direction of the Regina company and the colony as a whole. I want to start this week by looking at the winter of sixty-nine sixteen ten we're going to Japan by looking at that traditional telling before doubling back looking at some of the causes in many ways is difficult to get a great idea of what occurred during that winter the sources during the timer thin, and there is something to be said about a sense of cessation. Listen that's going to creep into the eventual telling of the event on the ground. The best source is going to be the colonies acting President George Percy Percy would write about the surveys in the terrible conditions at Jamestown during that winter. I'm going to read a quote from perceives book a true relation of the proceedings and occurrences of moment, which have happened emerging from the time, sir. Thomas gates was shipwrecked Bermuda anno sixteen o nine until my departure out of the country, which was anno domini sixteen twelve and yeah, that's an awesome book title sound super exciting, quote is as follows now all of us are Jamestown began feeling that sharp prick of hunger, which no. Man, truly describe, but which he have tasted the bitterness. They're up a world of miseries and suit as the sequel will express to you in so much that some to satisfy their hunger. Have rubbed the store for which I have caused them to be executed then having fed upon the horses and other beasts long as they lasted we were glad to make shift with vermin as dogs, cats, and rats, and mice always fish that came to net to satisfy the cruel hunger. As the boot shoes or any other leather some could come by. And those being spent in devoured somewhere force to search the woods feed upon serpents and snakes and to dig the earth for wild and unknown routes where many of our men were cut off and slain by the savages and now famine beginning to ghastly impale in every face that was nothing to be spared to maintain life and to do those things which seem incredible as to dig up dead corpses out of graves into eat them and. Some have looked up the blood which have fallen from their week fellows and amongst the rest. This was the most lamentable that one of our colony murdered his wife rip the child out of her womb and threw it into the river. And after that chop the other pieces salted her for his food. The same not being discovered before he had eaten her thereof for the cruel. Inhumane fact, I judged him to be executed the knowledge of the debate enforce from him by torture having hung by his thumbs with the weight at his feet a quarter of an hour before he would confess the same. George Percy was the best source on the ground at the time. Other information we get from the events come from John Smith's writings and sixteen twenty four. And in a moment, I'm going to share this account with you. But I wanna give a pair of warnings on it. I I Jon Smith left a few months earlier in the fall of sixty nine. So he was back in England in the winter of sixty nine sixteen ten rolled. Round. Likewise. He is writing this account is sixteen twenty four a full fourteen years after the events actually took place. Now, we're gonna talk more in a few minutes about the problems with the sources, including Smith. But it's something that I wanna be front about Smith wrote in the general history of Regina New England in the summer isles that neigh so great was our famine that a savage we Slough Mberi the poor sort took him up again and ate him. And so did divers one another boiled stewed with roots and herbs and amongst the rest to kill his wife powdered her and eat him part of her before it was known for which he was executed as he will deserved now.

"united states" Discussed on The Political History of the United States

"Welcome to the political history of the United States at one point seven Jamestown beginnings. Good news guys after spending the first several weeks messing around in the always intrigued world of sixteenth century Europe. It is finally time to get to the real story as much fun as we've had bouncing around through the political economic and religious changes Europe. We are finally ready to begin looking at the first group of English settlers to cross the Atlantic and settle in Jamestown before we get into that. However, I wanna give a rundown of what the foreseeable future the podcast is going to look like the popular story of the United States is that of a ragtag bunch of colonies that join together to fight the mighty British army. However, that is something that doesn't really exist right away. The first colony should be seen as more of a collection of independent knows acting separately from each other. In order to approach this. I plan to work through the colonies one by one looking at the unique factors each specific group making their way to America. I think dressing the major colonies one at a time is going to be the most effective way for me to move through the rest of the season. The general plan is to move through each colony and get it up to read around sixteen fifty before moving onto the next after moving through the colonies, I will have a few episodes to tie everything together and address a few other subjects that I wanna hit that is going to basically take us to the end of the first season. Now with all that said we are going to begin this week with the first of several episodes looking at that first colony founded in sixteen seven Jamestown would become the first permanent English colony in the Americas. For thirteen years Jamestown stood alone as the only English settlement in America before the Puritans. Join them with their settlement in Plymouth. The founding of Jamestown is a story of failure. Misery death starvation or an ultimately after facing cataclysm after cataclysm a moderate amount of success. The story of Jamestown is one that will see the con- you become the largest tobacco export or in Europe. But only after surviving disease and war with the Indians and starving that became so severe that. The people were forced to turn to cannibalism. These are just a few of the things that we are going to explore over the next several episodes and today, we are going to begin the lane the groundwork for all of that. Everybody in the United States is taught that the pilgrims. Spoiler alert, by the way travel across the Atlantic to the Americas to avoid religious persecution in many ways, this is held up as a banner establishing the freedoms that would become synonymous with the future. United states. The decision to go to James is fueled by the single most common denominator in all of colonization the hope of funding riches. To begin this week. I want to look at the reasons why people suddenly found themselves boarding ships in heading across the Atlantic. What were their motivations? What were they looking for by looking at what motivated the first settlers to good Virginia is going to tell us a lot about the colony and its future. And this is going to be something we keep coming back to future episodes as we move through the history of James ten in Virginia as a whole today when people look back on the history of the United States. There seems to be a tendency to focus more on the pilgrims, the founders of Plymouth, then there are the founders of Jamestown. In fact, there seems to be among many, a general belief that the pilgrims came across on the Mayflower were the first to settle the future United States, and yet Lino that not to be true for Gina had been settled more than a decade before and affect by sixteen twenty was well on its way towards stability. The question therefore becomes why is Jamestown often forgotten when we look at the establishment of the English colonies in North America. That is one of the questions we are going to be looking at over the next several weeks as we explore Jamestown. What makes the Jamestown settlers different than the New England settlers? To begin this week. I wanna start to look at the conditions under which Jamestown was founded. And who the settlers were last week we discussed English attempts to colonize North America at the Roanoke Connie, well that colony mysteriously disappeared. Also, marked the end of English colonization efforts up until sixteen o seven or the failure of the Roanoke. Colony may have had some minimal effect on the future colonization of North America. The real issue was going to be ongoing English Spanish war the war between England Spain had been a pretty good job of depleting English treasury. However would James the first now empower he quickly brought an into the war with the Spanish through the treaty of London. This means that the funds needed to launch a colonization effort were at last available following the end of the war. There was also a new reality for the English came two privateer. If you recall from episode one point three privateer in was tantamount to state sponsored piracy this become a big deal in the sixteenth century as Spanish. Out to such a huge lead in establishing thriving and more importantly profitable colonies in the Americas. Less time we talked about the devastating effect that privateer in had on the Spanish the easier solution for European powers that were not the Spanish Portuguese listed, turn towards private teary. Instead of forming your own colonies you'd instead attacked the Spanish ships still their goods and sell them as your own backing Europe, the English had just finished up a war with Spain and knew the continued use of private jeering was likely to lead to another war. So specifically in the treaty of lended, what of the requirements from Spain wasn't agreement that England would back off of their privateer practices, at least to get the Spanish be effective. Inappropriate against the Spanish merchants did not reduce however English interest in the potential profit and the items to be found in the Americas. The logical solution therefore was for the. English to auntie colonization effort of their own. As mentioned above with the war over there was a sensor plus a funds in England. This is not to mention that with the war over. There was now the manpower necessary for colonization efforts to be made the end of the were also means that the English had the ability to branch out keep in mind that one of the consequences of the first Benesch armada was that it prevented the English efforts to resupply. Their colony in Roanoke with the war over. However, this concern has been completely mitigated. Economically desire to colonize. The Americas will grow quickly in the years following the end of the war. Shortly. After the end of the war, you begin to see the first joint stock companies for the specific purpose of colonizing, the Americas for these companies are going to spring up with the stated intent of going to the Americas fighting the abundant natural resources and sending them back to England hopefully for profit. Colonisation was inexpensive undertaking to say, the least, and this is going to help lead to the rise of these joint stock companies, it joint-stock company is simply a type of corporation were several investors come together pool their money in order to fund expedition, this has obvious advantages over a single or otherwise small group of investors. It was really expensive to start a colony, and it's always gonna be a long term game. While obviously everybody hope that the new Connie would be founded by the city of gold and conquer the natives all within a couple of weeks. The investors know that this is not a realistic expectation. And beyond that, it was not a huge secret that establishing colonies was a task that came with considerable risk the English investors at a minimum would have been aware of earlier colonization efforts at Roanoke, and what happened there investors would have likely. Understood the profit was going to be slow in coming and knew they should not expect a quick return with this mind. The emergence of the joint stock company makes sense. A joint-stock company is made up of a large group of investors, which means that the risk is going to be more spread out the advantage for the colony is that by having more investors. There is going to be far greater source of resources available which in turn gives the Connie a better chance serving. For the individual investor. There was some real risk involved colonies had been lost previously. And there was no promise of these colonies would survive. However, the hope was that this could be a long term investment. And that if the Connie disavow live, there would be a significant amount of profit on the other side in sixteen six King James issued a Royal charter for the formation of two joint stock companies. These companies were the north Virginia company of London and these south Virginia company of London. The companies were giving a man to make habitation into that part of America, commonly called Virginia.
