The Heritage Foundation's Mark Morgan Reacts to Biden's Vaccine Policies
"Cause. We're back with heritage senior distinguished fellow. You can join heritage with heritage, Mark Morgan, former commissioner for the Trump administration for CBP. He served in the military. He's served in the FBI. He has, well, he is, 'cause marines never really retire. There is no such thing as an ex marine. So gonna get your response Mark. This is Oliver North another great marine who had something to say about people in the military being punished because I guess their body isn't their body anymore. Cut 11. Well, if you start discharging people that we need in the service, right now, the army is paying the maximum premium that they can to recruit people into the United States Army. This is not the time to be throwing people out of the army just because they would not take this vaccine. I don't see how that improves readiness whatsoever. And Congress had to stand up and say, you can't do it. We reported last week air force officer officially reprimanded on her record by her commander because despite being allergic to the vaccine, she she's not allowed to say I can't take it. So as a former marine as somebody who has served this nation for decades, your reaction to these policies from the Biden administration. Yeah, I tell you what. I'm right with former lieutenant Carl Oliver North. I think he's right on this. I think it does not enhance our readiness. I think it erodes the readiness. And I got to tell you, I know these individuals. Some of these have dedicated ten, 15 years of their life, all of us in faithful service to this country. They sacrifice a lot. Their families have sacrificed a lot. And this, at the end of the day, some of them have served in a war zone, have sacrificed so much and this is what they utilize to kick them out of the military. It's nonsensical. It's talk about unpatriotic.

I really, I'm excited to talk to you. But, you know, as much as I've admired you over the years, the idea that you're running to be governor of Texas is hugely exciting. So I really want to talk to you about that. I want to talk to you about yesterday and the January 6th, which my head's going to explode with anger at how the left has been portraying that in cooperation with the quote unquote mainstream media and the conservative media. But let's just talk about you. Some people know you, some people don't, where did you grow up? What you've got an amazing background obviously being a lieutenant colonel being a member of Congress. Tell us a little bit about yourself if you would. Well, I was born in 1961 and the inner city of Atlanta, Georgia and the blacks only hospital. I grew up in the same neighborhood that produced doctor marvelous the king junior is called the old fourth ward neighborhood in Atlanta. My elementary school was right across the street from ebenezer baptist church. I had two fantastic parents. My father was a World War II veteran, an army Corporal served in the European theater of operations and my mother did a little over 25 years of civilian service to a Marine Corps headquarters there in Atlanta. My older brother was a marine in Vietnam at the age of 15, my dad challenged me to be the first officer in the family because he and my older brother were both enlisted. So I started wearing a uniform back in 1976 in high school junior ROTC. And then I went out to the university of Tennessee and on 31, July 1982 I was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the army in the field artillery, and I served 22 years active duty in United States Army 13 different countries three different combat zones. I retired in August of 2004, been married for 32 years, my wife, her dad also was career army, 24 years. He's buried in all of the national cemetery. He served two tours of duty in Vietnam. We have two daughters. Our oldest is 28, and that's Aubrey. The youngest is 25, that's Austin, and we have one grandson. His name is Jackson Bernard, and he is 7 months
Meet Josh Mandel, Running for U.S. Senate in Ohio
"For people who don't know give us a little bit of your background if you would Sure I'm a marine Corvette did a couple of tours in anvar province Iraq I was inspired into the Marine Corps by my grandparents One of my grandparents my grandfather Joe was a Holocaust ever who was liberated by allied troops my grandmother Fernanda She was Italian Jew who was saved and hidden by courageous Christians during World War II And my grandfather Harold where the uniform of our great country is serving in the United States Army air corps and so growing up Mark in the Cleveland area my grandparents hammered into me duty to this country But for America liberating Europe I wouldn't be here right now And I had an obligation to pay it back and pay it forward So that's why I joined the Marine Corps and it's why I've been such a fierce lover of and defender of the United States Constitution As you know I'm a constitutional conservative and I think one of the problems in this country right now is not only Biden and the leftist but it's also the squishy rhino Republicans who are afraid of the Democrats who coward to the media and who refuse to stand up for the constitution And so in my time in public service in Ohio as a state legislator and state treasurer I led the charge taking on rhino Kasich who ended up being Democrat case tick and as the next United States senator from Ohio just as soon as I'll take on Biden and tumor and Pelosi I'll also take on these squishy rhino Republicans

Yeah that's a great question right. So so when i first joined the army you know be back in the early. Two thousand certainly different army than the army today. I can tell you that. And i and i see the difference rate and Those days i certainly was. I believe I was probably one of maybe a dozen south asians in the army of over me and people of that time and today you know All i have to go through our global directory or email directory and and search for just ir My last name and you can find dozens of them rain and many of the arms And it certainly is a real problem. and And so i i it it certainly you know it makes me feel proud that it's you know wasn't you know on the first ones that decided to go this path but and i was like you said maybe an unconventional path for career But today i would say that it's no longer the case in the army. And obviously you know now. Having offers south asia vice president in the white house yes Even more incentive and motivation for a lot of people Of you know from southeast asia. Recognize that eight. You know if if wise vice-president has can do it. I can do it right exactly and thirty do we can do. And then you look at you. Look at the number of people in the administration in an administration You know that. I mean there's a couple dozen two or three dozen senior officials or south asian origin In the administration already In people some positions. And so but going back to the army i would say. Even the army's always been a strong believer in modeling Character of behavior. That may not be what the nation in our society. Maybe but what it needs to be right and and so So very early on. If you go back to the history you know and redistricting states army. You'll find that you know a again today. this would probably be classified as you know. Extreme left liberalism.

History my heritage and medication from and use that as a as a teaching opportunity for others to learn about other cultures and take advantage of the same from others rate. And i think it's so important for us to have this position on free now than ever before because there's just so much lack of understanding that leads to misunderstanding of each other's cultures and And i believe that is absolutely needed now and we should welcome that That that dialogue and exchange if ideas And i can tell you..

The army would be able to leverage that to be able to you know Send censor data from the field and to use that you know should on enemies right and and so it was you know. Be the army actually. The last few years of the senior levels have gone through tremendous transformation to get a good A good understanding of technology and again not a deep understanding but a great appreciation and understanding for you know the rules Ecology is done a play. And how every one you know whether you're in uniform or civilian you are going to have to be examinee to be able to fight the future fight. And so so. I can tell you i have. I sit in meetings with four star generals who can go head to head with me uncomfortable acknowledging the army daily. Wow oh absolutely and and so So it is it is Ah changed things and is setting the right to own for the change in the chance to the concert james that are top of so much about hospice far from the top the division and and showing that you get it and the fact that That you support it and it is no longer that. It and technologies that back office in the army rape so my job in as the cio. He's very little. Do where in running stop computers.

The Nazi Hunter: Eli Rosenbaum on Tracking Down the World's Most Wanted Criminals
"Newly appointed attorney. General merrick garland has said he will renew the justice. Department's focus on the threat of white supremacists. Eli rosenbaum knows a thing or two about ideology for forty years. He has helped the department track down and hold former nazis accountable for their world war. Two crimes a law enforcement role that has earned him. The moniker of nazi hunter. Mr rosenbaum with us now. To talk about that moniker. And that mission mr rosenbaum. Welcome to people love the pod. Thank you great to be waiting. So yes you have been called the nazi hunter. I've seen the show on amazon prime. But what does that term mean in real life. Well it's not an expression. I'm particularly fond of because it suggests that this mission is something other than what it is which is professional law enforcement. We are not engaged in on or anything sort but we have been for four decades now simply investigating and taking legal action against participants in nazi crimes against humanity. Your father escaped nazi germany in nineteen thirty eight. I believe. can you share a little bit. About how your family history inspired this work. Y'all my dad. Got out of germany lived in dresden. His brother and his parents and they managed to get visas to this great country and were able to escape in nineteen thirty eight and the attorney. General merrick garland said in his recent testimony. I think all the time about how the united states saved my family my father graduated high school in newark new jersey and then started paying back the united states by going into the united states army and he was sent to north africa and to europe and served in the third infantry division and then when they realized that they actually needed german speakers they transferred to a psychological warfare branch unit in the us. Army the incident that changed my father's life and had a big impact on the shooter was when he was sent to a concentration camp by his commanding officer to go there in a jeep with two other men to see what the army had found the previous day when they liberated dot com word spread quickly in the region that something terrible was there and my dad's co wanted. Know what it was so my father went when i was fourteen years old and we were driving on the new york state through a blizzard heading north and there was nothing left to listen to the radio. We were talking. And i love hearing. My dad's were stories especially the funny ones. Anybody who serves the military s funny stories about food or whatever and then suddenly you said you know. I was sent dot com the day after its liberation and i though fourteen was a time when there wasn't much said really about the holocaust i knew what it was and i said what did you see and i'm like my father staring out the front window because it's pretty treacherous driving and i don't hear anything from my father and i look over to the driver seat and there i see dad with his eyes glistening their welled with tears in his mouth is open and he's trying to tell me and he couldn't speak and it was the first time i ever saw my cry men of that generation didn't want anyone to see them cry usually and we never did speak about it so my beloved father lived you know into this new century and so many many decades and we did speak about work with frequency when i was home but we never returned to the subject of you say you talked about your work with your father. How did that conversation or the job evolve over. The course of forty years work has changed quite a bit. When i started actually as a summer intern back in nineteen seventy nine. Never imagining that. This would become my life's work. We were overwhelmed with investigations. We had inherited the responsibility from the former immigration and naturalization service after the attorney general took it away from them because they had not succeeded and he's had up this new office the office of special investigations in the justice department criminal division and we had more work than could really keep up with and it turned out in the first few years that the we had inherited that actually had the most merit were ones that were based on tips received directly or indirectly from foreign governments. Which at that time was to say. Mostly the soviet union occasionally another government but generally the the soviet union which had mixed motives in these cases. We started being very proactive within a few years and by the five year point and they're after nearly all of the cases that we could develop to the point of prosecution. We're wants dan. We had initiated on our own and the methodology for that was to task our staff historians. We were the only law enforcement entity in the entire hemisphere that had its own complement of historians. They were the people who could dig for the needles and haystacks and we tasks them with responsibility for keeping an eye open for the surviving remnant of personnel records and other documents that identified perpetrators or perpetrators this. They did with great success. And ultimately we assembled more than seventy thousand names of suspects mostly european also some japanese and we ran each of those names one by one against us immigration records and sometimes other records in an effort to see if we could determine whether any of those people came here assuming they hadn't changed their names

"Saturday midday on a cold Saturday morning, the day after Christmas, and I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I know I did. My daughter's in from Hawaii in the Army and Christmas Eve went to my sons. Have a great meal out there and yesterday just kind of hung out with families, So I hope your Christmas was good as well. I kind of have a theory about Christmas, and I think I'm right about it. Not to be too bah humbug. But Christmas is fun. Obviously, when you have a kid, I mean, there's just nothing like it whole years centered around that. On Christmas is fun again. When you have kids. I mean, there's nothing like that to Christmas morning. It's getting up about four o'clock under the tree opening their gifts. And I think Christmas will be fun again. When I have grandkids, which I hope is soon Hint, hint. Other than that, I don't know. Sometimes I think it's kind of an exercise and just getting through it. But I hope you had a good Christmas and all kidding aside, I did. Mine was great. I wanted to talk to you. If you recall last week in the Saturday morning rant, we talked about American exceptionalism. And, of course, that's the idea that America And Americans are exceptional. And you know, we were actually taught that in school, and it was a big deal. And America and Americans are exceptional. The example that I gave last week is who in this world what country in this world could have produced a vaccine. For covert 19 unless the nine months I'm told the normal time to do something like this is anywhere from 5 to 10 years. We did it nine months and only Americans could do it. You don't hear about the term very much anymore. And if you do, it's in the negative sense, and I found something this week. Just kind of stumbled on it. That Has to do with American exceptionalism, and I wanted to tell you about it and again if people refer to it or not people, But if the media social media news media referred to American exceptionalism, it's usually in a bad light. You know, they talk about the myth. Of American exceptionalism. Well, like I said, Just this week, I saw another example of Negative comments on American exceptionalism. Get this and you may have heard about this already. I don't think it's a news story, but The army had a course our seminar called Operation Inclusion. Now, you know, Never mind that members of the military, both uniformed and civilian. Are strictly forbidden from engaging in any overt political activities with seminar was nothing but an over political activity. But anyway, in spite of that, still, someone put together this course entitled Operation inclusion. Which teaches that if you support enforcing immigration laws, or God forbid, if you say things like all lives matter, Line. Of course you're a racist. Well, I guess the teaching here is that you're racist. If you discuss any of these ideas, and this is right from their curriculum if you discuss any of these ideas or used any of the following phrases If you use a phrase all lives matter. Well, you know you're a racist. If you deny white privilege, Of course you're a racist. And if you support English only activities I mean, you know you're a racist. Oh, and of course, if you dare dare to celebrate Columbus Day. You're a huge racist. But in this curriculum that the United States army wanted to put forth to their people, both the the soldiers and civilians If you say the term American exceptionalism what we were talking about last week, if you believe in American exceptionalism, according to operate Operation inclusion. You soldier are a racist. So I don't know. You know, It's just unbelievable. You're not allowed to believe that America and Americans are exceptional. Well, someone blew the whistle. I think it was someone in Congress on this whole operation. Inclusion nonsense, and President Trump stepped up and he put the Chi Bosch on it real quickly. And here's what the president said. He said The uniformed services should not teach our heroic men and women in uniform that the lie that the country for which they're willing to die for is fundamentally racist. Such teachings could directly threaten the cohesion and effectiveness of our uniforms. Services. You are right, Mr President. So just to wrap up this morning's lesson about American exceptionalism kind of Of tailing on last week. If you are in the army, and if you think and say that America and Americans are exceptional Like I said, you soldier are a racist. Yeah. How much do you want to bet, though, that President Joe Biden resurrects operation inclusion when he becomes president? I think you can count on it. And speaking of President Biden. His Cabinet is coming together. And the question that I asked him and the others are asking, too. Did he put together a cabinet who he felt would give the country the best and the brightest that we have to offer. Do you think he did that the best in the brightest? You know, competency experience, things like that. You think that's what he took in mind when he we kept in mind when he put together his Cabinet? Well, you know the answer to that as well as I do. Of course he didn't. The Wall Street Journal this week characterized his Cabinet selection process as quote an absurd ist exercise in box checking appeasement. God, I wish I could write like that and absurd ist, exercise and box checking appeasement. Now and picking his cabinet. Obviously, his goal wasn't to give us the best possible people available. And his pics look like the diversity spoil system if you will. And here's what he said last week or this week. Actually, I tried to find a clip of this, but I couldn't find it. But here's what he said this week earlier in the week when he was asked to describe his Cabinet. He said he's describing his Cabinet quote. The first ever black secretary of Fence Secretary of defense, the first ever Latino head of the DHS and the first ever Latino head of HHS. The first woman of South Asian American descent to lead OM be the first woman and Asian American to lead the United States lied as the United States trade representative, the first black woman to chair the president's Council on Economic Advisers, the first ever woman Hold Alexander Hamilton's position as Treasury secretary. That's how Joe Biden kind of described his Cabinet. Now, in the words you just heard. Did you hear the words.

The US Army is going to reportedly halt twitch activities after backlash, so this has been developing story over the last couple of weeks, and so this is the latest update. The United States army will spend his activities on the streaming platform twitch for the time being do the negative backlash. The organization has received in recent weeks according. According to reporter Rod Slasher Breslau who's just getting all scoops days. The negative response to the army's activities on twitch include orchestrating giveaways that led to recruitment pages which twitch banned and blocking users from asking about war crimes in the channels chat section have made the army reconsider its outreach efforts online on the same day. Reports appeared that the US representative Alexandria. Akhazia Cortez excuse me.

Powell said he supports push to rename Army bases named after Confederate leaders
"Of State Colin Powell giving his take on the controversy surrounding the U. S Army bases named after Confederate generals, he spoke on CBS's face The Nation. I would rename the bases. We really hadn't thought about that a few years ago. But now with black lives matter and all the issues that are before us, I think it is a good idea to rename the 10 bases in the United States army that are named after Confederate
A Turning Point: Race Relations In Sports
"It has now been more than four weeks in George. Floyd was murdered nearly a month since we all watched him. Take his last breaths. It feels like so much is different, but real actionable change that takes time. Many who took to the streets in protests have now resumed their daily lives, so now seems appropriate to discuss how sport will handle affairs moving forward. As North American teams and Leagues Continue Their Return to play processes. It is vital that the conversations and promises made when the racial issue was hottest that they do not go away. In a few moments, we will welcome in our panel to discuss how that should happen, but first a look at how we got here in the first place. He will have color have been argued about beliefs, and that's not right. That's not right by any was standards. The point he was making gut twisted from the start. The beginning when Colin Kaepernick I made is public protests peacefully heap I sat on the bench during the national anthem to bring awareness. There's a lot of things that need to change once one specifically police brutality. There's people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. It was the summer of two thousand sixteen, when he bursts truly used his platform as an NFL quarterback to speak out against systemic racism by police in the weeks leading into that preseason payment. San Francisco capper Nick had watched. We all had. To white officers pinning down Alton Sterling. And pumping. into his chest and back. He saw the traffic stop in Minnesota when Philander Casteel was killed in front of his girlfriend in charge. And captured it could not understand how mental health therapist Charles Kinsey could be shot by police when he was lying on the ground with his arms up in the air, people of color have been targeted by police. Cops are getting paid leave. For killing people. That's not right. That's not right by anyone's standards. And yet from the beginning law in. pre-game gesture was misrepresented and downright manipulated. The Christ came that he was disrespecting the flag that it was a slap in the face to military personnel. But when active soldiers pointed out, they serve to provide their citizens with the freedom of speech that capture nick was exercising. That narrative quickly was quashed when army veterans who had been in battle, echoed that very sentiment out of national football league buildings team needs I would be disappointed if any of our players didn't stand up for the national anthem personally. I, look at that as a salute to the people who have paved the way for us. Our Organization believes that. You should. Respect the flag and so you'll save those individual decisions to expression show. On individual form. And that became the prevalent message. Don't do it here. Stick to sports. The underlying tone. How dare you protest without our approval we're. Do you get off? Colin Kaepernick criticizing anyone in another uniform. Right the men and women lead for this, I- scenic. First hand. For. Somebody do that to get paid millions of dollars. It's ridiculous. Cabinet remained undeterred. United States Army Bet. Nate! Boyer who did tours of duty in Iraq, and Afghanistan encouraged him to kneel and not sit. By, taking a knee voyeur told him you show your respect for fallen brothers that way. So capture nick did. And then more NFL players followed. And yet the public and political conversation in the US would not steer toward police brutality. No matter how much star athletes peacefully attempted to. And the leader in America's biggest chair. Amy Shirley Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners? When somebody disrespects our flag to say, get that son of a job appealed right now out each fire. I! Capture Nick became a source of division for standing up against injustice. He hasn't taken a snap since that twenty sixteen season. And at this year Super Bowl USA. Today's jared bell minced no words on why that is I. Think it's pretty obvious. He's been blackballed for Colin Kaepernick not to have a job is just. It's the worst look for the NFL. No conversation was more dominant inside NFL. Locker rooms that season than the Kapernick one teams are made up of players of all ages of all backgrounds of so many ethnicities. If you actually want to listen to different perspectives. If you're an athlete who would want to hear what your peers had to say, there would be no shortage of takes to soak in. But fundamentally the want would be to understand capper knicks fundamental point. After George Floyd one of the League's biggest stars reminded us that many still didn't I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country. Maybe that was the crossroads moment because the reaction to. It felt like something had changed almost as. That won't cut. It anymore drew. brees in the rest of the NFL were told right away, the new. Orleans quarterback came under fire. The players in the league had just about enough of the establishment silence. They had captured message. They were not gonNA. Let owners and Roger Goodell get away with it this time. Would have other Jewish Knowledge George if I was. I was George Void. Jewish. And say hi in. Regard. To me right. Breezes all pro receiver found Dallas's bruising runner and Houston's electrifying quarterback, and Kansas City Super Bowl Mvp. And Obi. And they all let you know. We. Condemn Racism and assistant. Matic oppression of black people. National League, admit wrong and silence our players from protesting. Also. Black lives matter black lives matter. Like loves. To Have Patrick Mahomes the next superstar the NFL. Front and center. That was massive. And the very next night the commissioner uttered the words you never imagined would happen. We the National Football League Immune. We were wrong for not listening NFL players earlier. And encourage all speak out in peacefully protests. Read the National Football League believe black lives matter. Progress. Probably a step forward. You want to believe so. The day after the commissioner changed his tune, breeze went to social media again. He'd already made his hollow apologies without actually saying sorry, and he finally seemed to be listening to what some teammates had to say, and after all of that even drew brees somewhat stood up to the president. It won't Change Donald Trump of course, but maybe it will make others think. Perhaps it will create more uncomfortable conversations to allow for a greater understanding among all of us. And at the very least it has given others throughout sport. To have the freedom to finally say their piece open believing they may at last be heard. Or country is in, trouble. Basic reason is race. You're seeing an example of future. That's fighting for you for you. Right now a fine for you got a grandfather that march legs. Dr King in the sixties. And he was amazing. You'll be proud to see us all. Got Pushing? Forward Doing Casey marched with his family. Members of Detroit's organization. An NBA coach using his voice. Over in Jacksonville Jaguars personnel were among the demonstrators. North Philly's finest. He walked. Kyle Lowery's we can. Priorities were set. This though. This is just the start. To silence of countless elites spoken loud. Until you see action from an, don't forget by the leaks themselves. We wonder what the real commitment to progress actually is. What capper protests was about from. The beginning can no longer be debated. And it is now crystal clear to all of us that no athlete should just shut up and dribble. Nelson Mandela famously said. Sport has the power to change the world. Since George, Floyd perhaps we have learned that change can come more from our sporting icons using their voice platform in pursuit for justice than any jumper were swing. Or goal or touched them. Stick to sports. Sure let's stick to sports bettering the world in a new way. Let's start hearing the real message now. And most of all, let's not get the words and actions like Hafer. Knicks twisted. When he tried to begin the real conversation. Before US AGO!

We pledge allegiance to the flag every day, just like every other young person in the city of Philadelphia do. And we said with liberty and justice for all. Just like everyone else only to go out and find as we matured. That was not so as I found out when I went to the theater. When I bought my ticket I was directed to the balcony. It was mandated that I go there. Because I wasn't good enough to go down on the main floor. It's beginning to get a little in the site to the society and how the Society viewed me. A person of color. And we. Always went to the park. And I recall how I look through that wire fence at this large swimming pool. Which I knew, I could never use I would never be admitted. because. The society was saying loud and clear to me. That I wasn't good enough. Those are the kind of things to. Make. You feel bad. I finished school in Nineteen forty, three. I went out and I I volunteered. And when I went down to the induction center. Institutional racism smacked me right in the face. because. Sergeant was there and. He told me go one. When I went through the door, and he told my wife go another way, and so I went into an all black unit safer, the officers they will white. When you enlisted, you realize the military was segregated. You. Don't even think about those things until it hits you in the face. And of course, the thing that made it more real more painful was the fact that they send US south. They send us right into the heart of the place where people would. would. Be a confrontation. We went to camp. Wheeler Georgia for Infantry Basic Training And we spent quite a time in Mississippi right in camp McCain. We spent almost a year there. and. We went on maneuvers into Texas Louisiana. And we came back to little. Rock Arkansas. Now all these places I was given the message. of WHO and what I was as far as the society was concerned. And it was really frustrating to think that you have made a commitment to your country and yet your country is saying to you. All Right? You're okay, but only so far. I went into Macon Georgia. Attempted to get a drink of water while I was in their simple thing like a drink of water. Because, you walk around the town Ucla Fountain drink i. went to drink at. Someone grabbed me and say boy. You don't drink here. Pointed to the sign, which said White. And directed me to. Another sign was said colored. Where was another fountain and you of course in uniform at the time happened? Soldier like all the other lack soldiers we will all experiencing. This was ear perception, though that the black troops generally though. fully understood the fact that. While the rhetoric of the war against Nazi racism, and so forth will was fine. In practice, the country was doing something entirely different. It was as though you were just a fringed. Country had was to personalities Channel One way. We may make wonderful announcements. You know we we've talked about engineer. Christian ethics and We're going to make the world a better place for democracy and all that other jazz, but then when you cut down to a real thing and you start seeing the way they operate. Things we're not. And so I? Began to be an angry, frustrated, young black soldier. After my experiences. I really did not want to be. On A. Specially after. Having to stand on a bus. When there were no seats at the back, having to stand up for hundred miles and looking at empty seats. Didn't endear me. To to my country. Couldn't eat in a restaurant. Had to go around the back. Knock on the door to get food. And I'm in a uniform I. And I. Prisoners of war from Germany. Being allowed to go in a restaurant and sit down to eat, and I was not entitled to for the same opportunity.

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.
