The Left Is Desperately Trying to Stop Trump From Being Re-Elected

"As expected, the former president, Donald Trump has invoked the Fifth Amendment in his deposition in this witch hunt over overstating the value of the Trump property. I'll give you the details on that in just a moment. But he also released a very lengthy statement over what the attorney general letitia James is trying to do to him in New York City today. I saw an analyst earlier this morning and said, well, it's not going to be a good look. For Donald Trump, if he invokes the 5th, he pleads the 5th in this civil deposition. It's the only thing he should do. Don't give them anything. Don't listen. He knows he's got teams of lawyers. Who are well equipped to tell him how to navigate this. And if anybody can survive this and very few could, let's be real. Very few people could survive what they're putting him through. And it would be comical if it weren't so horrific for the United States. Two years after he leaves office and suddenly now comes Liz Cheney swooping in in the January 6th, two years. How long do you think it takes? To accuse the president of having documents in his home in Florida, he's not supposed to have. How long do you think it takes to make a case that he talked to some Pennsylvania congressman about January 6th? They're desperately a challenge you. I dare you to tell me that I'm wrong. When I say that they are desperately trying to stop him from being elected by the American people and none of us should tolerate this.

The Christian Foundation of Our Nation With Bill Federer

"People will say that there's nothing exceptional about America. And that America is not a Christian nation. Tell us why that is historically incorrect. So Muslims invading Europe, the Catholic king of Spain tries to stop them, can't, then Martin Luther starts the reformation. The king of Spain tries to stop that and he can't, and he finally makes a deal with the protestants. And he is called a piece of Augsburg of 1555. I took German in college and you know how to say 1555 in German? Film styles from 404 from sake. I think it sounds funny. Anyway, 1555 piece of Oxford, it let every king decide what's going to be believed in his kingdom. And so suddenly Europe, you have England being Anglican, Scotland, being Presbyterian, Holland being Dutch reform, Greece being Greece, orthodox, Germany being Luther in Switzerland, calvinist in Italy, Spain, France, et cetera, Catholic. And if you didn't believe the way your king did, you fled. And those were the people that spilled over and founded colonies in America. So I read through every charter of every colony. England, you had the anglicans founded Virginia, Puritans founded Massachusetts, congregationalists founded Connecticut and New Hampshire. Baptist founded Rhode Island. Dutch reform founded New York. And the Swedish lutherans found that Delaware and New Jersey and Catholics founded Maryland and then the quakers on the Pennsylvania. So just like Europe, there was a different denomination per country in America was more or less a different denomination per colony, and they didn't get along. And

Even Caitlyn Jenner Recognizes the Transgender Divide in Sports

"Was fortunate to have played for the men's team because I was not man enough to have played for pat summit. But I did get to work with her closely in the women's team. But there were distinctions between how men play basketball and women play basketball. We had limitations. You couldn't jump. You couldn't try to block shots because that's not what the women's game was. You know, you've got transgender athletes now. Former athletes that are like Caitlyn Jenner that are telling us that even they see the distinction in men and women competing with men trying to be pretending they're women. You know, if you look back at the Olympic records during Bruce Jenner's time as a man, when he was a decathlete, he had ten events. He wasn't the best in any of the events in the world in terms of athletes, but overall the ten sports, the ten divisions that he played, whether it was track whether it was high jumping with his pole vault, there were ten sport activities that he did as a decathlete. If he had competed in those individual sports as a woman, instead of a man, he would set world records in almost all of them. His hundred meter time, for example, 1976, as Bruce Jenner would have been a second faster than the fastest woman sprinter in the world at that time. So Bruce Jenner now Caitlyn Jenner recognizes that men and women should not compete, but the Democrats don't get that. They're still trying to destroy women's athletics by putting men pretending to be women in many cases, not even having done any genetic surgery or any genital surgery to change their physique. And yet they're walking around in locker rooms as guys surrounded by women. And yeah, Democrats don't see anything wrong with that. They can't define woman, they can't define when these decisions can be made. You've got some states now that are wanting to force, I think, Pennsylvania is saying that the Department of Education that kids can identify as transgender as young as three.

Are The Republicans Going To Blow 2022?

"We have a bunch of results from Republican primaries across the country. And what they are showing is sort of a mixed record of candidate selection from Republicans. This is not been a major surprise given the fact that Republicans very often nominate candidates in what are supposed to be wave years who are kind of sketch. You remember this in 2010. There were a bunch of Republican candidates in what should have been lean our races who seemed out of the box and then ended up losing very winnable races, Republicans have an unfortunate tendency in primaries to select the people who they think are the most passionate. The most potentially game changing. And then those people go on to lose the general election. The famously William F. Buckley suggested that the art of politics when it comes to primary voting is to select the rightmost candidate who can win and very often Republican voters forget that last part of the sentence who can win and they just select the rightmost candidate and understandable mistake. This is complicated by cross currents from president Trump because so much of American politics has now become a litmus test on loyalty. And so when president Trump attacks a candidate, very often, people resonate to the candidate, the Trump endorses, even if the candidate that Trump endorses isn't exactly a person who is likely to win a general election simply because they feel the person that Trump is ripping on is not sufficiently loyal to the cause. There are all these varying sort of eddies in American politics. And what this is amounting to is Republicans blowing the chance perhaps to actually win back the Senate or win a broader majority in the House of Representatives. Yesterday Nate silver is 5 38 switched its projection to forecast for the first time that Democrats will actually keep the United States Senate. That is a direct result of candidate selection by Republicans in primaries ranging from places like Georgia to places like Pennsylvania. Nate silver wrote on Twitter. It seems clear. There's something happening here and move into our Democrats in recent polls isn't just statistical noise. He says that something is probably in part or indeed mostly jobs, meaning the Supreme Court decision to overrule roe versus wade, but there are quite a few factors that will come to look better for Democrats over the past few weeks, including their legislative agenda.

"Byron, let's turn to primary day, because you follow this as well as anybody. Arizona and Michigan and Missouri. I'm urging people to vote for Eric Schmidt because the FrontRunner is an attorney general, he's experiencing a good senator and we can not allow it greatness to be nominated if you're a Republican. I know you're not a Republican partisan like I am. But if he is elected, Eric, if we lose that seat because he's a despicable human being. Yeah, you know, there was a astonishing story. In Politico, I think, about what took place on Sunday at Trump's golf course in New Jersey where they were finishing up this live golf tournament. Trump was the host as the owner of the course. And there's this big debate about who to endorse in Missouri, Eric Schmidt, or Eric riders. And each has his advocates and Trump is going back and forth and keeps saying, well, heck, they're both named Eric. Maybe I'll just endorse Eric. And then actually had somebody check to make sure that they were both spelled Eric with a C so that it would actually work. This is the level of thought that went into this endorsement. And then Trump does this cutesy. I endorse Eric in the Missouri primary, which is really making a joke or something that's really actually very serious. Because the Republicans could lose the Senate. Now it's tied 50 50 with operational control for the Democrats because of the vice president. But they could actually lose the Senate. They could lose Pennsylvania. They could lose Georgia. They could lose Missouri. I mean, this could happen. And so we've seen in the past, the past decade, what happens when you get really bad candidates? Did you lose? And candidate quality is the most important, more so than ideology or anything. The most important thing in politics and state level politics. So this is really, really important. I agree with you.

Pat Toomey: Joe Manchin Was Taken to the Cleaners

"Joe Manchin who, as you know, last week, finally yielded to the pressure of the Democrats, he caved to Chuck Schumer, and has agreed on another massive spending bill. He made the rounds yesterday on all the Sunday talk shows. Trying to explain his position now, it's a tough one to explain. And some of them, some of his colleagues aren't buying it, for example, senator pat toomey. He's Republican for Pennsylvania, as you know. He criticized this new climate healthcare tax package that senator Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer unveiled last week after Joe Manchin decided, well, maybe I do like spending money after all. In an interview with face the nation, to me suggested that mansion was taken to the cleaners. In this inflation reduction act, now you remember that the very reason that Joe Manchin did not support the build back better program last year was because he said that he was afraid that additional federal spending would fuel inflation, which it will. We know that we've seen it. That's why we are where we are today because of the trillions of dollars in the name of COVID that Joe Biden and our federal government has spent.

Jon Stewart Is Pushing a Veteran Healthcare Bill He Doesn't Understand

"John Stewart is out there pushing a bill that is designed supposedly in order to make sure that people who are in the military and who have been around toxic substances get the healthcare that they need. And that is supposedly what this bill is about. I say supposedly because that's what the bill is about, but the Democrats also added a massive budget gimmick that essentially adds $400 billion in spending. To the bill, they just added it right on top. John Stewart was out there pushing this bill because John Stewart doesn't know how legislation works, John Stuart is not a particularly sophisticated political player. I understand these ban on TV for a very long time and then he went absent for a very long time. But Jon Stewart is essentially any other Hollywood activist. He reads the top line of articles and never reads about paragraph four. Well, here's what happened with this bill. So there is a bill, and the bill included a bunch of healthcare provisions to help U.S. Military veterans who had been stationed around burn pits, which are pits that are essentially dug to dispose of waste at military sites, and the smoke has been seen to cause long-term respiratory illness and many of the exposed soldiers. So there's a bill to pay for their healthcare, the problem is that what Democrats then did is Democrats took a bunch of money in the Bill and that money had been labeled as discretionary spending. They were adding on top and they shifted it over to what's called mandatory spending. Now when they did that, which means that under all circumstances government, shut down, under mandatory spending, the money must be spent. That didn't take the amount of money that's his $400 billion. It didn't take it from discretion or discretionary to mandatory. And then the $400 billion in discretionary spending just disappeared. All that did was it freed up $400 billion in discretionary spending. So that $400 billion slot still holds. It's still there. So through a budgetary gimmick, basically Democrats took the discretionary spending, they said that we will call it mandatory. That didn't make the $400 billion that was discretionary. Like in a big bag, shift over to the mandatory category. All it did was it added $400 billion in discretionary spending. It just meant that the $400 billion that had already been allocated, now moves into the mandatory, but there's now a big $400 billion bag of cash that is out there under this bill. So pat toomey, who's a Republican from Pennsylvania. He opposed the bill. And this caused John Stewart to rail against pat toomey. Because again, he doesn't care how much the government spends. Democrats don't care how much the real question here is why Democrats did this gimmick in the first place. Why are Democrats trying to add $400 billion in slush fund spending to a bill that was designed to protect the healthcare of military veterans?

"And that's when things started to feel a little less magical. Traffic got unruly, people were running around the forest with flashlights, and it seemed like the fireflies themselves were disappearing. So Peggy and Ken went back and consulted with their scientist friends and learned this. Light pollution, no matter what color no matter what intensity, light impacts them and they don't flash, they can't find each other. Then they can't mate. The flashlights and cell phones were interrupting the mating process. And even for those fireflies who did mate, the festival goers could be problematic. All these thousands of people trampling on the very thing that's growing on the ground, the larva, and then the next generations are lost. Every time a festival goer veered off the path, or someone spread out their picnic blanket. They were right on top of the firefly larvae. The baby fireflies winning crushed. I think all came to the same conclusion at the same time that we weren't enjoying the festival anymore. Ken and Peggy butler were at a crossroads. Should the firefly festival even keep going? They started scaling back, debating what to do next. Then the decision was made for them. In March 2020, the COVID pandemic hit the U.S.. The bed and breakfast closed its doors and crowds weren't allowed in Pennsylvania. Because it was an outdoor event. The firefly festival was actually able to take place. But it had to be held in a socially distant way, which meant limiting the show to just 25 people. The COVID really was a blessing in disguise that allowed us to pull back and reset. In 2020, the firefly festival was intimate enough that the butlers could talk to their guests. Ken remembers a young couple that drove 6 hours from New York. They were students studying in New York and they just couldn't take it anymore. They touched my heart. We gave them a couple of camping chairs and set them up out in the field where the fireflies would emerge. And here this couple is staring at the forest before dark and in hand waiting. And to me, that was what this was all about. And without the crowds, the fireflies came back in swelling numbers. The young couple from New York was able to sit in the middle of a brilliant 360° light show. Maybe holding hands, the same way Ken and Peggy had a decade earlier. That's the experience I want people to have when they come and they see the fireflies. We wanted to feel very special. We want to capture the moment those two people had. At a time when the world was upside down. In 2021, as COVID restrictions eased, can and Peggy decided to keep things small. They sold just 50 tickets a night, gone were the food trucks and outdoor lighting. And they replaced the live music with lectures about ecology. And at 8 30, Don Salvatore presented his slideshow from the museum of science. And there are now rules for the festival goers. Never use pesticides or bug sprays, never catch the fireflies. Every group is guided, nobody is given free rein in the forest anymore..

Right, so we have 5 guest bedrooms, furnished with antiques, I made breakfast in the morning. It was a farm breakfast with eggs and bacon and blueberry muffins. This is Peggy butler. She and her husband Ken were the owners of a cozy bed and breakfast in kellyville, Pennsylvania. So it's truly like going to grandma's farmhouse. Their usual guests were there to enjoy the mountains in the forest. Outdoors people fly fishermen, hunters. But one day, back in 2011, they got an unusual call. It was from a group of scientists who had made a reservation. And said that they were coming to study the fireflies in the area. They did come and they set up a laboratory in our garage at the time, and turned it into a lab. They brought all of their gear with them. You can imagine. That's an vials and Petri dishes. And kept unusual hours. They would come back in after midnight with their specimens and look at them under microscopes and dissect them until the wee hours of the morning. Sunrise. They'd be just going to bed. They would sleep in, which was just fine. And they quickly became family. After a few days, the scientists invited Peggy and Ken to venture out into the Woods. It wasn't actually that far from their place, only about a fourth of a mile. It was well past 11 o'clock at night. Frankly, I'd never been out in the forest this late before. I put my hand up in front of my face and I could not see my hand. The tree Canopy makes it very, very dark. I'm looking around thinking, what's behind me? Could there be bears or snakes? So I'm a little freaked out and then all of a sudden, wow. It was just amazing. They start popping like flashbulbs. This wasn't just some handful of fireflies in the backyard. Blinking around randomly. There were hundreds of them. Some of them were up in the tree, some of them on the ground. Some swirling through the air around them. And then they all go dark at the same time. And you can count 8 seconds and they will start again. It is kind of a spiritual experience. We might have reached out for each other's hands just to share that experience that this really is special. A spiritual experience for Ken and Peggy. But a biological one for the fireflies themselves. Yeah, let's call them by their scientific name. Why not? They're called Carolinas, even though they're in Pennsylvania. But there you have it. That's doctor Sarah Lewis, an expert firefly researcher from Tufts University. And for all fireflies, from the normal backyard ones to the synchronous ones. The reason for lighting up is the same. What this incredible display is all about is male fireflies flashing their hearts out silently singing a love song to female fireflies if the females like what she sees she'll actually flash back. It's a really, really cool thing. Normally it's kind of every firefly for himself. But for the synchronized fireflies, there's an element of teamwork going on. Here's Peggy again. As their flashing altogether, it says though they said, you know, if we all flash together, maybe we have a better chance. So she recognizes in that darkness of the 8 seconds that that's her family, that that's her species, that that's the males she wants to mate with, so then she flashes during the dark period. When they can see her. Let's be clear, the males are very much still trying to outshine and outcompete each other. But by glowing together, they're identifying themselves as the right species, which increases all of their chances of getting a date. So this is the light show that Ken and Peggy saw that night in the forest. The beautiful synchronized glow of this massive mating ritual. And almost immediately, they had an idea. Ken and I are musicians. A singer and a ukulele player, and then I play the drums. They thought, let's hold a small art and music festival. Where people can come and see the fireflies. Once we found out that the state insect of Pennsylvania was indeed a firefly, we thought, well, then we need to go with the Pennsylvania firefly festival. 2013 was the inaugural Pennsylvania firefly festival. 300 people showed up. We had food trucks. We had vendors, wonderful jeweler that made these firefly earrings. The next year, 500 people came. While we were pretty naive, we made it free. The first two years. Fireflies are free. Soon, there were over a thousand people coming each night. And at first, Ken was happy. Well, as a business person, this is what I live for. So, you know, it was constantly for growth and numbers. They started charging for tickets and for parking, they built bleachers. They hired more staff, a documentary crew came calling and not just any documentary crew. Said, wow, do you know who sir David Attenborough is? And of course I did because I watched all the nature series on PBS. Our three car garage became a film studio. Look like a Hollywood sound lot and eventually the movie was released, and we started getting all these phone calls from people. Wanting to come to the firefly festival..

"Brought to you by i robot. National beach day is almost here with roomba robot vacuum and the bravo jet robot. Mop worry less about mess and just have fun. We are standing up for equal treatment before the law. Pennsylvania abolishes prison gerrymandering by madeleine carlisle and sonia mansoor pennsylvania commission responsible for drawing. The state's legislative districts voted three to two on tuesday to end prison. Gerrymandering the practice of counting prisoners where they are incarcerated rather than in their last known residence before incarceration advocates have lauded the move as helping write an injustice. That unfairly skews the state's political power away from urban areas and communities of color the change will apply to those incarcerated a state correctional facility or state facility for adjudicated delinquent but not to individuals in federal or county prison facilities or those serving a life sentence a spokesperson for democratic house minority leader representative. Joanna mcclinton says that federal and county prison facilities were excluded because they don't fall under the state's jurisdiction while people given life sentences were excluded because they are not expected to return to their homes. The commission included to democrats to republicans and a non-partisan swing vote appointed by the state supreme court. The vote passed along party. Lines with the swing. Vote joining the commissions to democrats in a statement. Mcclinton said the decision will impact the counting of the majority of the thirty seven thousand state prisoners housed in twenty three different state facilities in nineteen counties even though most prisoners cannot vote the us census automatically counts incarcerated people as residents of where they are imprisoned which in turn boosts the official population count of regions that host large prisons and impacts the drawing district lines. Pennsylvania now joins at least eleven other states that have opted to instead count incarcerated people at their former residents for state level redistricting purposes. The comes after years of organizing by criminal justice advocates who decried the practice as unfair one. Such advocate is representative mcclinton. Who for years has been pushing legislation to end prison gerrymandering in pennsylvania. It was only this year through her role on the legislative reapportionment commission that she was successful. First and foremost we end practice which denies these people their rightful representation but beyond that we end giving undue weight to those rural counties where prisoners are unfairly counted in the legislature. Mcclinton said in a press release. It's too soon to know how the commission's decision could impact the makeup of the state house and senate but it could well be impactful a twenty nineteen study by villanova university. Sociologists brianna register and rory kramer for example found that if incarcerated people were not counted as part of pennsylvania's district one fifty which contains the prison s. c. phoenix and montgomery county jail. It would lose more than five thousand people and likely be too small to meet federal minimum requirements for a state representative. Their research also found three other districts that would be too small and concluded that if all prisoners originally from philadelphia were counted as residents of the city. It would potentially gain one or two statehouse districts still without action by congress on the federal level a majority of us states still continue prison. Gerrymandering as the deadlines for twenty twenty redistricting fast approach. Grassroots groups are continuing to push redistricting commissions and state legislatures to change how they count incarcerated people if changes are not implemented. They'll have to wait another ten years. Connecticut and new jersey were among the handful of states that enacted bills ending prison gerrymandering earlier. This year with many legislative sessions coming to a close. Pennsylvania may be one of the last who make changes this year and for those who worked on the issue for decades. It was a major victory today. We are standing up for equal treatment before the law and truly embracing the ideals of one person. One vote mcclinton sad. It's summertime so relax at the beach and stress less about how folks are absolutely going to track sand right into your living room because you have the roomba s. nine plus robot vacuum and with the bravo jet m six robot mop.

So thomas o'meara is still paying someone off their The beginning does not have numbers for same-day views. Which kinda surprised me because it's a couple of weeks now but eight point two on md again. Thomas o'meara money well-spent. Pennsylvania has less than a thousand raiders Which the beginning has over a thousand readers so Apparently a lot of people like just didn't read it or skipped it or so. That's interesting the only episode that has less than a thousand ratings of pretty boring episode. It was. I literally have like four lines written down about the entire episode. Well i told you. I was like i think i might have watched it twice and i think i need to go watch it again because i don't think i wrote down any notes and then i messaged you and was like i wrote notes. I don't have to watch it again. Oh that is tragic. It is okay. I've got nothing to say about the title for the us pennsylvania anything illuminating to say now with obviously the the sub that.

"However by the time we are moving through the early seventeen hundreds these problems are compounding for william penn and are becoming a far bigger concern for our proprietor. This desperation to make money is the why we see pens. Set an interest in divested himself from the colony in exchange for cash pennsylvania had never become profitable for him and as we have discussed he continually struggled to get any money sent to him from the colony. Things were made worse as the person who had been acting as pens financial advisor had in reality set up a system whereby william penn had become deeply into to him. All of this would stimulate with a then sixty two year. Old william penn. Finding himself in debtor's prison pen would not remain there for long however having his reduced to house arrest in seventeen twelve penn suffered a stroke which caused him to believe that his own death was near. Well he would recover from the first stroke. He was hit later in seventeen twelve with a second bar more catastrophic stroke. We had talked a few minutes ago. That a deal was struck between pen and the board of trade regarding pennsylvania that needed to be abandoned because of pence health. It is the second stroke that broke up. That agreement penn would spend the next six years of his life and he steep mental and physical decline pens wife had callow hill would write in seventeen. Fourteen penn could barely comprehend information being given to him about pennsylvania evidence suggests that drain the final six years of his life. Penn had only periods of lucid thought and was often described as sitting there with a vacant smile on july thirtieth seventeen. Eighteen william penn died. What is the legacy of william penn. Initially i had wanted to write a biography episode on pen. However after i started working on it i realized that there is so much to discuss and that his life was so closely tied with pennsylvania that the task became impossible. Penn is something of a sympathetic figure. It is hard to argue that he came with the best possible.

"Rather the death of colonial proprietorships would come one at a time. We see this for example in the carolinas where the proprietors would ultimately end up selling their shares. Back to the crowd there will never be a greater sweeping movement that tosses everybody to the curb a single swoop upon pence death his heir william penn junior showed far less interest imparting with his new colonial holdings which brought a quick into the idea that a deal could be reached with pen to convert it into a royal colony. The ability to avoid conversion to a crown colony was also aided by the fact that the whigs were particularly powerful during the middle of the eighteenth century. They were far less anxious to see. The colonies converted into royal colonies than their rival tories. It is interesting to know that penn having reached an agreement to divest himself from the colony would have long lasting ramifications for one as the connie saw an increasing anglican population. There was more interested internally from that group to become a royal colony. It is also worth a mention that the less champion of divesting the colony from the penn family and converting it into a royal colony was none other than benjamin franklin. It was franklin in seventeen fifty six and again in seventeen sixty four that came the closest to actually getting the government of england to act and revoked the pennsylvania charter. We will touch some more on this in the future as the battle against pennsylvania also meant that franklin was in england during some of the more dramatic moments of colonial history it was indeed events surrounding the american colonists response to the stamp act. That would help save pennsylvania's proprietors in seventeen sixty five. The vitriolic response to the stamp act helped move the focus from the domestic strife and one to the larger question about the overall relationship between parliament and colonies. The proprietors used this opportunity to ally themselves with parliament on the issue and hence deflect attention away from themselves. There were a few more money or salvos in the form of an attempted by parliament in seventeen sixty six however by that point the pens had no interest in selling and the matter was dropped when we reach seventeen sixty six. We are well in the run up to the revolution well. The concept of a break with britain was still unlikely by the middle part of the seventeenth sixties. There was an undeniable tension that existed between the mother country and her colonies. This is going to ramp up another notch in the seventeen seventy s would communicate an all out war beginning in seventeen seventy five following seventeen sixty six. There were no further attempts by either side to convert pennsylvania into a royal colony at various times both sides appear to have interest in reach an agreement that would have made pennsylvania into a royal colony however the stars would simply never align other than briefly in seventeen twelve to make such a transition possible following seventeen sixty six. It is more as though time ran out on the project as attention shifted to other colonial concerns rather than there being some kind of a definitive victory for either side. Pennsylvania will remain a proprietary colony all the way to the revolution before we wrap up for today. I want to give a couple of final notes. On william penn william penn would never return to pennsylvania following his departure in seventeen one as penn would struggle with the question of what exactly to do with his colony. Be give it back or somehow it back. He would continue to deal with crippling financial problems. Now these are the same problems that we have seen him have really throughout our entire story..

"However this provision was backed up by the board of trade back in london. It likewise probably is not a surprise that the charter of seventeen one was heavy on discussion over religion. The document did provide the expected. Freedom of conscience provided that the person was a christian. The charter of seventeen. No one is going to help in. Its goal of relieving much of the tension that had developed over the prior fifteen years the lower counties now had their own assembly and we're no longer subject to the whims of the philadelphia quakers. The council had been relieved of its power they legislative body which would help reduce the factionalism between the quakers. The new charter was in the eyes of the assembly improvement upon the prior systems and it was quickly adopted. Problems did of course still remain and will continue to be source of infighting within the colony the assembly would still clash with pen moving forward however the frame of seventeen. A one brought much needed clarity to the political situation inside of pennsylvania at a time when the connie desperately needed it the charter would likewise really bolster the power of the assembly. Yes penn still held a veto as to the privy council back in london however the assembly and therefore the people had a surprisingly large amount of power and self-determination. The charter was so broad in the powers given to the assembly that it encroached on the powers of the proprietor himself. This control came primarily in the way of economics with all of its new powers. It was the assembly that was still in charge of providing the funding being able to propose an pass legislation as well as authorized funding single-chamber legislature provided the pennsylvania assembly with a tremendous amount of control empower shirt. Penn had that veto power however with the assembly having power over both legislation and funding. It was a veto power that the executive was going to need to use very carefully. Possibly the most surprising thing about the charter of seventy one is the fact that despite is relative simplicity it had a stain power. This is in fact. The final colonial government in pennsylvania and would survive all the way up until seventeen seventy.

"However throughout the course of seventeen. Oh to pen had not made many friends amongst the board of trade. It also did not help things that new jersey fared worse than pennsylvania and had lost its charter in seventeen to what the immediate risks have been. Sylvania was at least under control. It was not lost on pen that the colony stood in a very precarious spot it was under this backdrop that penn tired of the entire made his initial attempt to sell the colony back to england. The problem is that in addition to a cash. Buyout penn wanted to guarantee the individual liberties within the colony were protected. The members of parliament were not terribly interested in the proposal and passed on it however the entire affair shows. Just how burnt-out william penn was by this point. This is not the last time that penn is going to attempt to sell his colony back. It is something that he's going to continue to do throughout the years. This brings up an interesting question of. Why did pennsylvania never actually become a crown colony before we address this however. I want to talk about that charter of seventeen. No one but go ahead and keep this idea in the back of your mind for a few minutes as we are going to return to the subject as we last left off there are now two frames of government the sixteen eighty three version and the sixteen ninety six version. The colony had been nominally operating under the ninety six version however prior to his departure in seventeen o. One pen realized that the issue needed to be reconciled. William penn understood that the colony could not continue to operate with two governing documents. The result would be known as the charter of privileges of seventeen. No one there are a few things to realize about the document. I pen was a huge hurry to get it done. He was leaving in seventeen o one and this was one of those things that he needed wrapped.

"Of trade had no interest in there being a colonial assembly. The prevailing view in the sixteen ninety s was one that lennon was attempting to lessen colonial autonomy. A move that having a colonial assembly would have gone directly against the battle over illegal. Trade is going to continue for years to come. Pennsylvania would make attempts to get around the new laws however the board of trade quickly quashed all their attempts for penn. This meant that upon his return to the colony it was imperative that he proved to the board of trade that pennsylvania would deal with trade violation seriously and not just blow them off penn seved under the new laws and saw these ads. Morality cores as being excessive. After all pen was the proprietor he had been given the authority to make the laws necessary. For the colony. These courts were interfering at encroaching on what he viewed as his own personal powers. More than just that. However juries were a central right of englishmen. If you were accused of breaking the law you had the right as an englishman to have a jury consider your case. However during this era such violations were denied a trial by jury and instead were forced into an atom morality court where a judge alone held the power. Once again we return to that question of the position of the colonists in the greater english empire the colonists viewed themselves as englishman. They were not some conquered people. They had immigrated willingly to think that as a unmentioned condition of that immigration they were forfeiting their rights as englishmen was unfathomable however we have seen time and time again that in england they did not view the american colonists as being equal to those back at home. This is of course nothing new and has become a major theme over the last season. Anyhow have pen would take great. Strides to attempt to show the board of trade that the american colonists could handle their own batteries and enforce the laws of england. They use of ad. Morality courts is going to remain incredibly unpopular as we move through the.

"Last week we spent our time looking. At the turbulent years in pennsylvania during the glorious revolution while the colony was spared many of the hardships of its neighbors. Their leader william penn fared far less well. After years of waiting william penn had been cleared of those charges against him which stemmed out of his relationship with james the second well he must have been pleased about the acquittal. William penn was still facing some very serious challenges across the atlantic. His colony was nearing the breaking point both in london back in pennsylvania. He found that his reputation had taken a huge hit throughout this entire ordeal and that he was now largely just ignored. Finally on top of all of this. He was struggling with very serious financial problems and found himself fighting just to keep his head above water. Pen of course was not an innocent victim. And all of this. His bizarre appointments combined with an increasingly fractured populace in pennsylvania did him very few favours. This week i want to spend our time looking. At a handful of different things i want to continue to explore some of that internal dissension inside of pennsylvania and ultimately roll that into the larger question that we have spent so much time exploring and bull continued to do throughout the next two seasons specifically what is the role of pennsylvania inside the greater english empire. Finally we are going to turn our attention to the frame of government itself as we examined pens attempt to regain control over his colony. And he'll some of those divisions that formed in his absence. We do have a whole lot to cover today. And i do expect. This episode is going to run a bit longer than normal. So let's go ahead and jump right. In following his being cleared of charges. The first order of business for william penn was recapturing control over his increasingly hostile colony. The very first thing he needed to do was get the colony restored to him. By this time there was already some movement towards converting proprietorships to royal colonies..

Say because it was overcast it was rainy as local delo colder than all but we got out there pretty early. I think as soon as we got there we were into the fish today. They well corey was i was. I add reset all my rigging. Because i left it on from long time ago and all my sinkers are all split. Shot was all messed up but no core got into it then once. I got my stuff figured out we were. We were hitting them. We were the only ones hidden and there were four other guys around. They didn't they weren't catching anything. We're pulling them in was it was nice. It was nice cash fish. Show off to those guys downstream. I i will say this. I am not some expert fishermen. I i don't claim to be. I just stack the odds in my favour. We go to streams. I know very well that official longtime we go to spots that we know.

We'd goes talking but so it's put in take program so there's no expectation that these fish are going to hold over the next year. I mean i think some do but it's not it's not as back to and they're all was like the they're literally arm razor raise their hands re raise a they know to eat pellets. They noted not eat fish. Food corn stuff like that but like natural stuff. It might not come to them right away. So yeah they're not. There are no replenish. The population right. Yeah and i think it's so like i said it's a put in take program. Pennsylvania fishing boat commission's web website. They say sixty eight percent of the stock trout or rainbow trout with less likely to reproduce naturally in the stream so it's less of a concern for competition with Wild brook trout populations in pennsylvania..

"And the drama continues. Yes, obviously. Donald Trump thinks that election was stolen from him and is made. Maybe there's been many allegations of okay. There was voter fraud here, and they doctor some ballots there, that sort of thing, And there's some pretty There's um, evidence there that makes you again. I've always said this should be looked into here. But you've gotta have some concrete evidence right of things that this was This actually happened in order for you to make a case to go to the court and all that sort of thing. So what does that entail? Let's talk to our legal expert about it. Andy treat ceviche welcome back to the program. Thank you so much for having me. I appreciate it So ah, Andy, Where do we stand? What do you see the chances of of any of this stuff working out for Trump? So a Zay said before he's got a very, very uphill battle and the The chances of him prevailing are closing by the hour. And the reason I say that is, you know judges. Look, if you have multiple if you have one lawsuit You know, one pony One rider. You put your allegation and in Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court exceeded their authority by by allowing ballots to be counted after Election Day. When the Pennsylvania Legislature said no, they have to be in That is a great argument. The problem is, he would have to run the gamut and when Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and either Arizona or Nevada and so he's got all these multiple lawsuits, Georgia judge heard evidence that I know it's suspicious. That sounds bad. But you don't wanna view all sort of perfect. You have to have concrete evidence. She just do. Mere suspicion isn't enough. So he's had three lawsuits dismissed already. And when another judge in another state hears that even though he or she is not supposed to take that in the consideration they do, and the more lawsuits loses. It really is closing in on him. I think the one thing That I am hoping he does, or attorney General Bar does before he leaves is under 28 CFR, uh, section 601. He can appoint a special prosecutor to look into that. The Biden laptop, the emails the money If he doesn't do that, it's never going to get done. And I'll just ask the two of you. Have you heard anybody other than Fox? Ask about the computer about whether those emails Joe Biden's never said they're not riel Hunter. Biden never said they're not really, um they campaign has never said they're not legitimate. And I would say What's good for the goose is good for the gander. And I hope that bar appoint a special prosecutor because then if Joe Biden comes in and fires that special prosecutor Good luck in the midterm elections in two years, so that's what I'm hoping he does. And he has the complete authority under 28 CFR section 600.1 s so when it comes to fighting Concrete evidence that there was election fraud. There's a bunch of ones that I've seen that. You know that look okay, maybe promising to the Trump camp. But here's one this is AH. Detroit City Employee Fire filed an affidavit. Alleging that series of voter fraud issues, Okay. She said that basically, the boss told her to fill out. I was instructed by my supervisor to adjust the mailing date of these absentee ballot packages to be dated earlier than they were actually sent. Super virus was making these announcements for all the workers to engage in this practice now and she filed have a David I mean, she's she can't lie right. If she's making this up, that that's me. Then she's gonna get in trouble for that. So is something like this enough to make a compelling case or you got to have more than this. So that is definitely evidence. I mean, it's an affidavit. And, of course, Don't forget the affidavit that was filed against cabin all by by, um, The woman who said that he had raped party is not the first witness. The one who later recanted her sworn affidavit. Not bloody for the other one, right? Right, but But so it is. It is actually, an affidavit is evidence. The problem is He would have to show that there's such widespread fraud in there that enough votes are tainted in Detroit to turn Michigan around, and that's very difficult for him. He has to prove one that there's enough fraudulent ballots that he would have won That state and the second hurdle. He has If he wins that state, he'd win the presidency. So let's say he wins. They lawsuit in Michigan and one in Pennsylvania. He still doesn't make it 2 to 70, and therefore the the courts are going to consider that if you win this case doesn't take you you know to to 70, and if it doesn't, they're just not going to hear it. So he's got a really Uphill battle. Andy. True Ceviche is our guest. So let's talk about the Supreme Court today hearing the situation on Obamacare, Can you lay that out for us a little bit? Absolutely. So when I was on about a month ago, I said there's when, when the Democrats were saying, Oh, it's the sky's falling. If any justice there gets up on the Supreme Court, the Supreme Court's going throughout the tens of millions of people are going to be Thrown out without health care, and I said, there's no way this Supreme Court will throughout the the what they'll do is excise the mandate and clearly from oral arguments today, I predict that the decision will come down. It may be a seven to decision at 81 decision. Possibly 90. But probably 7 to 81, and all they're going to say is the justices were clear that we can excise the individual mandate the penalty or the tax, depending what you want to call it..

Following the fire hit witness the literal rebuilding of London. Following that and seeing how the city could be rebuilt. Pet had a lifelong interest in city design. This would manifest in Philadelphia. Far, from being the haphazard city whose Latte was based on unpredictable and sporadic growth. Philadelphia was more or less a master designed city. Philadelphia would quickly begin to grow and expand, and by the time seventeen fifty rolled around it would have the largest population of any city in the North American British colonies. Pennsylvania was further located at a strategically important spot within North America. Located between the southern colonies such as Virginia and the Carolinas and the northern colonies in new. England and New York Pennsylvania was any position to be a trading hub virtually from its very conception. This is going to help to explain how ecology that is coming into the game relatively late is quickly going to grow to become a center of power within the North American colonies. We are going to leave our story here for now. Next. Time, we are going to spend our time looking at the politics of Pennsylvania Self.
