Focused on a strong, strong, almost laser like United States military I mean, I think everybody agreed with that today. They're trying to, you know, pick it apart, piece by piece. You know they Many, many years ago, Democrats saw America as a force for good in the world. Now, a lot of them seeing America as the ugly, imperialist country of oppression, and I think Vernon Jordan said it. Absolutely correct. I mean, he's correct when you're right. You're right.

Today, they're trying to ban every form of energy except for renewable energy. Well, that's great. Except that won't meet the need, at least not currently. Um, you know, they didn't dismiss public school choice choice. Being picky, worked. Now they oppose alternatives for kids from poor families. They have to go toe these failing neighborhood schools. I mean, all of this. All of this is going a very distinct direction. It was sort of like Pelosi introducing this bill that you know we can't. We can't use words that, um in in some form or fashion. Tell you the gender of the person they're talking about. There's a reason for that. I know it sounds goofy and stupid, which it is. But there's ah, much more insidious reason for that.

"The electors concept, and that even was true going up to recent history. Vernon Jordan, for example, was head of the Urban League, I think was against abolishing the electoral college, wasn't it? Well, that's a really interesting story, right so that what I just told you was how it was southern segregationists who drove the filibuster that killed the amendment in 1969 1970. They were joined by the CP and black voters and political leaders in the North for a interesting reason, which is that The north and particularly states, like New York with New York was the biggest swing state in the country in the mid 20th century, and how New York Swan often decided the election and black voters and ethnic ethnic minorities in the big cities decided how New York was going to swing, so they also had an outsized power in the electoral college. Thanks to the winner take all law. So they didn't want to give up that nobody wants to give up power that they have whether or not it's you know, it's gotten so you know, black voters in the North were defensive of their extra power in the electoral College, just like the Southern segregationists were and in the end, you know they killed the bill for self interested reasons. But you know everybody else loses as a result. Well, I want to bring terror Rossen, But before I do want to hear from a caller Brian, who supports the Electoral College and Brian Welcome, Let's hear from you. I thank you, Michael. It's important conversation. Um, as I understand it, The electoral college is there to protect the interests of states and we are a federal system. That allowed Faith. The original 13 colonies to come together in agreement that they were going to fight against the tyranny of a king. And without the electoral college, those states can lose power. Which is the foundation of our system to I mean on a moral level, it's too allowed. Areas that otherwise would be disenfranchised. We like that term franchise and disenfranchised doing on It would disenfranchise. States that are smaller. So we come together as a union. Because we way create in our system. Our constitution. A means to allow for the sharing of power. Different from how Athenian democracy works, where it's a majority rule if we go with the majority rule concept And we shouldn't have a bill of rights because the bill of rights gets in the way of the majority. Should it one day the side exit. And then the Constitution steps in and says, Well, you need two thirds majority. That That's a violation of majority rule. We don't say that's wrong. Get your argument is really a cornerstone of one of the arguments in favor of the Electoral College is like I said, I want to hear from terror Ross, but let me first hear from you, Jessie Woman in response to Brian's cool. You know, I mean, I hear this a lot. And this is a variation of the argument where a republic not a democracy, which I just think misconstrues the term So you know, you know, invoking Athenian democracy is really an opposite because We are not a direct democracy on the national level. We never have been and we never will be. We are a representative democracy. Electing the president by a popular vote does not turn us into a direct democracy where majorities win all the time. We still have the Senate. We still have the Supreme Court. You know, we are electing a representative. We're not passing laws as the Athenians did directly, you know, or as, say town meetings in New England do we are electing a representative and that representative Is being hired to represent all Americans equally, regardless of where they live. That's what the argument is for why that person should be elected by all Americans equally, no matter where they live. I want to bring terror Ross into this discussion. She's the author of Why We Need the Electoral College and a book called The Indispensable Electoral College. How The Founders Plan Saves our country from mob rule and Let's Go Right to the heart of your titles there. Sarah's first Let me welcome you Glad to have you aboard. Thanks for having me. So why is it indispensable? And why does it save us from mob rule? Well, the reason that the electoral college is important in a country like America is because we are so large and so diverse. There's so many different interests somebody different perspectives. So many different ways of life really across this great land of ours, And if we were to implement the national popular vote system, as some people are arguing for Some of those perspectives would get lost and will never have a voice in the presidential election system ever again. So that's the big reason is to maintain diversity and not to ignore, for example, smaller rural areas or smaller states or anything but to have a kind of equity. Is that what you're saying? Basically But some of it's about small states. Certainly, but you know, some of us just about Different subcultures, the different industries. You know, farmers versus people who live in big cities. The different ways of life that are are that we all experience across America. We had a national popular vote system. Then the candidates would be tempted just to aim there. Their campaigns, and they're there. There policies at the areas in the parts of the country where there are the most people, you know, 2016. We have a lot of emotions about that. But we can look at an election like 18 88. Which were Grover Cleveland Lot, won the popular vote. He lost the electoral college vote. But the reason that he won the popular vote was because he had won a huge landslide victories in six Southern states. He won 72% of the vote there. If he had been allowed to win that presidential election, he would have been selected handpicked by six Southern states regardless of what the rest of the country thought. So I mean, I would argue that this is not a good system. National popular vote would not be a good system because it would create a world where the incentives are. Just go to the part of the country that's already familiar with you. That already likes you That's already predisposed to be on your side. And give them anything they want and cater to them. And, you know, I think the president is the only person in the whole United States that is expected to represent such a huge diversity of us. There's no other elected office in this country where that is true, you know others senator might represent a state or a congressman might represent a congressional district. But the president has to represent absolutely.

"I'm a civil rights attorney and I find it repugnant. You know, there was a Democratic lawmaker from one of the seven states. I think it was Georgia or Louisiana who supports President Trump, even though registered Democrat Who went on MSNBC, and he was talking about why he's supporting the president. And the anchor asked him if he was on the take. And I was sitting here watching that and I was saying to myself. Under what circumstances of some politician is supporting another politician or endorsed another politician for office. Under what circumstances? Is it acceptable to ask them if there was a cash payoff for them to do that? That's insulting John. I am so angry about this. I might just mean may have beat bleed me out because that was Craig's melding. Black report. I want everyone to hear this. I hope you wiped NBC and MSNBC. Craig Melvin Ah, black reporter who's married to a white woman. I have a black state Democratic representative Vernon Jordan, if he's getting paid Ah black man doing the bidding in my opinion ofthe fake white Westside liberals, because the implication there John is, If you're black in a republic, you must be getting paid to do a song and dance. I don't think quick Melvin as his wife. Are you being paid or any white candidates? The requirement to be on in a MSNBC and CNN? If you're black, if you have to be a Democrat, and you have to hate Donald Trump. Just for the record. I have received $0 from Fox. $0 from Trump, and I'm voting for Donald Trump. For one reason he's a much much much that I say much, much better candidate than Joe Biden. Hands down case over period. We actually have the sound of that exchange. Let's go ahead and listen, Are you Are you a pain? Campaign Surrogate? Are you being compensated? Let me be clear. You get paid to shape our liberal narrative. You get paid to attack this president for this brisk I don't get a dime from the campaign. Everything me and based on my principles you see Vastu problem. One of African American. I did not raise your Oh, you're not going with you because you're so don't ask me that. You only asked me that because I don't fit your narrative. You know anything I don't want anything from this president is what I can do for my country And you need to accept that mean African Americans and other support this president because of his policies and to insult me to say, Am I getting paid? Inquest rates. I have asked the same question that represent aircraft and their narrative to keep blast silent. Who happened support this president? What do you like white liberals or otherwise? No question there. Any pace statement? Do you ask Democrats? Just just if you just ask, just said statement hasn't heard and Jones He couldn't get out of that interview faster. Goody. He was dead. I will hope every John Philip listener call MSNBC and NBC and demand that Craig Melvin at every white Democrat. And every black Democrat and every white Republican if they're getting paid, because that question was asked specifically by a black man to another black man, because the Empress's If you are a Republican isn't a Celtic Colin Powell Condoleezza, right? If you are a Republican, you are getting pay, because no one in their right frame of mind if you're black would be a Democrat. The Democrat is the party of the clan period, the party of the clan. It was the Republicans who freed the slaves. It was Ronald Reagan, who created Dr King's birthday. So please You know, I'm a civil rights attorney. I will not call like it is. I'm not gonna tow a party lie because of skin color. I'm going to have a civil rights attorney. I'm going to judge a person by the content of his character, Craig Melvin, not the color of his skin. Craig Melvin. All right now, Leo. I was watching Fox News earlier today, and I saw an advertisement that said that Leo Terrell is going to be on with Judge Jeannine this weekend. What's the TV schedule coming up? Well, John. Thank you very much. I'm doing Hannity tonight. I didn't see that. Just genie Janine Promo we we were on last week and they asked me to come back this week, so I'm looking forward to it. And I'll tell you right now. Michael is really to put out the word that Democrats and Non Republicans to really give Trump a look.

"The lead story about the attempted assassination of civil rights leader Vernon Jordan C. N. N. well to change the notion that news could only be reported that six times throughout the day what happens thanks for listening to this week in history on I heart radio you're listening to one of the best podcasts from I heart radio and now back to the stuff you should know podcast all right so we're going to we got to go back in time a little bit because we we spent right up to World War two it was just too interesting that didn't wait to talk about it any longer but we need to go back to about nineteen thirty three because these brothers ended up fracturing in a big big way and there been quite you know some legendary sibling rivalry through the years but this is this is really one of the greats and I believe even Rudy wrote as an older man the the relation to my brother was ideal from nineteen twenty four to nineteen thirty three then his young wife tried to interfere with business matters although she with her sixteen years had no experience at all and the warfare began yeah so here's how the story goes is it in nineteen thirty three adi was indeed married to a sixteen year old which seems very creepy now but back then it was not the strangest thing in the world slightly less creepy slightly less creepy well they just it was a different time okay so he was married to a sixteen year old and tried to get involved in the business Rudy was not happy about this and they all live together the two brothers and their wives all live together in the same town house yeah which is not a great recipe for success anyway right you know you need to have your own place so you can imagine that all the little bickering and snide remarks and just all the stuff that if you have two couples that don't really really really like and love each other living together will will accumulate if you translate that to a business relationship is going to be hard on the business it was for sure so there is apparently a did a series of just little things like that but that as far as the family legend goes the real break happened during World War two when the allies were bombing the juror is the the village of hurts so and the Rudy and his wife made it made their way to the the bunker the bomb shelter and shortly after that Ali and his wife I think her name was caught to they made their way into the bomb shelter and when they entered he said looks like the **** are here again and already Parilli went to his grave saying that he was referring to the allied bombers but Rudy that already was talking about Rudy and his wife yeah and apparently that was the final straw yeah this is true evidence that things were really bad if something is simple possibly it's just a little mis understanding of whether or not the **** were the the allied bombing or you my brother and my sister in law okay so the I mean things are things are D. bad if this is what did it right so that that's the World War two still going on and at some point Rudy gets called to go fight for the **** he gets drafted so Rudy has to go to war and the whole time he's away he's he's so this rift is already happened so he suspecting one that his brother and his brother's wife plotted to get him drafted and he can't get that it that idea out of his head so much so that apparently multiple times he deserted his post yeah to go home to make sure that he wasn't being ousted from the the business he dealt with his brother and then he gets arrested for desertion any sure there is little brother ratted him out for desertion which you may have and so he's arrested is held for a while and as he's making his way back after the war to hurt so he gets picked up by the allies for under suspicion of being a guest stop agent yes he's sure again this is a little brother adi who got him this time landed in a P. O. W. camp that he stays in for a little while and it turns out he was right there is documentary evidence from an American officer who took the accusation down and apparently it was adi who went to the Americans said my brother's he just stopped me one of the two what does your work this is the level of stuff these brothers are doing to one another and the the rest just kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger there's one other thing we have to say because the wife the younger wife the sixteen year old Carter gets historically blamed for creating this riff to think in a lot of ways unfairly sure she's also the one who saved the family business single handedly yes on April nineteen forty five the Americans margins are hurt so those tanks pull up in front of that factory and the soldiers American soldiers are out there like kind of going over what they should do should be destroyed this building or not this is the place where the ponds are checks were made yes ID's wife caught the comes out and she basically walks right up to these enemy soldiers and says we only want to make shoes we only desire to make shoes and they're like why are you talking like colonel Klink and she said we all do okay and that's basically like if you convince them to spare the factory they did so and not only that the error the airforce user for set up operations there at their air base in Hillcrest they really like the shoes well they found out that this is the company that may just see and famous track shoes yeah and so they went off the charts I started getting these huge orders going forward sports teams American sports teams because of this so this is all going on it's all starting while Rudy's often the POW camp because his brother ratted him out and the business all of a sudden it's starting to turn international like like you like you said people around the world are taking notice of this thanks to the American G. I.'s were coming back with this get a sports where and when when Ricky comes back it's done his brother's ratted him out there was the whole thing in the bomb shelter and the brothers split the company that they built together they split give Bruder Dessler and das slur and they go often found their own companies yes fifteen years after that bunker incident yep so it was it took a long time to finally boil over in in between there was another war they were not too good **** we should point out kind of you know they were members of the **** party and ready to get drafted but like you said deserters post a lot and if they you know they really did just want to sell shoes right he's like the white Schrute song call grandfather he spent a lot of the war in the allied P. O. W.'s that's right so like you said they split up the company and as we mentioned earlier that this river ran to the center of town and I said significant and it is significant because it literally divided the town and they set up their businesses not like one of them said well I'm going off to Berlin right they just set up camp on opposite sides of that river ID das l'or said I will name my company adi das actually a first the name the odd us well yeah but everyone said that stinks well know that that was a different one that when there is a children's footwear line already called artists so he added that I in turn it into I. DS yeah Rudy went with Ruta and everyone said that no one's gonna buy shoes name Ruta especially in the United States and he said I don't understand I said don't worry about it so somehow he got home out of Ruta right which I don't get but it's a name that stuck their networks is definitely better than rooter for sure yeah so these to go often form directly competing companies that was split from the same company that the brothers had founded together and adidas and puma started making pretty good headway out of the gate at first Rudy had the sales team had the marketing team had the the ability to to move some product but I already had the technical know how the dedication to making high quality footwear the athletes like professional athletes wind aware and so he could get his shoes on to athletes who would wear them on the world stage and eventually his his I guess his tack one out over his brothers and and from that from a very early stage on adidas has always led puma at least as far as like sales revenue goes yeah and you know their mistakes from both of them along the way business wise one of the big ones for puma early on was that rude off got into a spat with the coach of the the German national soccer team and of course all that did was open the door for his brother and ID das to go in there and say what about the issues which is exactly what happened and so that the nineteen fifty four World Cup Germany wears adidas with those signature stripes and even though they were not favored all at all West Germany actually won against hu Hungary I believe yes and that was a huge huge deal on a national international stage it was like the miracle on ice on grass you mean they were stone they were all stone are there going the miracle on ice on grass that you know that might have legs my friend I could give aid to the needy trademark that well I do officially right now trademark I love it so that was one mistake adidas would of course go on to make some mistakes later I know that the that you sent that one article where they talked about how they said you know at one point that like jogging no one's going to do that so we're not gonna make ya going shoes right and aerobics that's it's a flash in the pan sure who cares about physical fitness machine Reebok earlier it's hard for the young folks out there who are listening to to know this but there was a time when Reebok was the name in sports apparel we'll plus all yeah in in Reebok this article says that they lost their way at some point but the way that Reebok kind of took the lead for a little while I was saying no we'll get into jogging will get into a rope again make this stuff at a time when adidas and puma were ignoring it one of the other mistakes that both adidas and puma made was that they were so focused on beating one another man they just completely dropped the ball as it were on the rise of Nike yeah at night he was able to take over and apparently right out of the gate and since then Nike has always been the leader in sports apparel yeah and at the this is you and promise three right yeah amazing so you have an option these days you can buy your sports apparel from a company that's been known to use child labor or company that use forced French labor under the auspices of the **** party in World War two Hey let's take a break yeah we'll take a break and we'll talk about how this rift still oddly carries over in that town today and run DMC why Y. es que but.

G. B. T. Q. community well when Joe brown would say about African American votes they did say he was say about A. O. G. D. G. G. or B. G. G. Q. commended community or the legal immigrants it was the black vote but the black vote doesn't take center stage or hear what you have now the Democratic Party looking who did two candidates are in Joe Biden who cracked an impartial the Qandil to Washington to Congress that locked up the whole generation of African American men and women separately their families talk about separating families and putting people in cages and here to president trump comes forth with the criminal justice Reform Act first year program and is given to those people black people the others to so I just only heard from Vernon Howell were you ever a Democrat none of this sounds like the Democratic Party will grant R. I didn't leave the Democratic Party the Democratic Party left me the Democratic Party one time was was on Cisco responsibility of balanced budgets are less government but now they've gone so far with socialist ideas day council far left they want to give a little sting away free marketeers I was born and reared on a farm in North Carolina and they said that the only thing they want for the government to get out of its way so they can raise their families educate their kids and so that bass the Democratic Party lives L. Miller prime example Democrat in Georgia our government in U. S. senator not only did he endorse President Bush but he spoke at the Republican National Convention we talked about were Democratic Party was going so this is nothing new but I just got tired of it and I'm not so his slope sold so let me ask you this are do you think first of all are you really going to walk away are you gonna have you're gonna walk away from your term you know I I usually know when I came out and endorsed president trump because president trump one word describes him for me and that that is our results what do you do for the economy what you don't know from justice reform I have just gone to restore the black college proud graduate of North Carolina since university can restore funding that was cut and they wrote it into law you know he has a track record opportunity zone districts building communities that have been devastated by you know just downtrodden and and no no revalidation date they're being turned around down people investing when I took the stand for president trump endorsed Amal party attacked me I have been said to me and returning that I just I didn't know there was just that much hate instructed you guys you can have this plantation somewhere else and use my own room I'm out of here I am not to be a part of this but it is important to stand up to this party and elbow them until they made room for conservative thinking African American and white heterosexual male that's conservative looking at southern states they're very few of them instantly and so the party just gone in so I'm gonna continue to call this party out I'm not going to be silenced I'm going to take a stand and when I got that support all around the country even from my district and from people all across the country patriots are great Americans in earnest don't give up at least in the short term did you know what the hell with this I am coming back and I'm going to be in those Democrats states we're going to be going back interests session in June there is a an immigration bill that targets those violent does the alert crime committed by illegals where they cannot have both thank you very stated that they the police department will be recording them to ice and haven't taken out of this country so I must co sponsored that bill and I want to get opportunities down the floor and I want to speak about the deal and and outstrips outstrips the rest of this term which ends in July I'm I'm sorry all right so one twenty two so now he you have burning you have the Democratic Party the the chief and the whole Democratic Party coming down on you like a box of rocks the local press now said that you have you flip now they're saying this was just self promotion for you because there's a primary in a few weeks how do you expect to get through this primary well you know the liberal media then at least a thirty years when I served in the legislature in the nineties for eight years when I was county executive a server number eight years there and I was term limited when I ran for US Senate they hated me band they treated me just like President Bush for president trump that's why nobody's going through the state news the levels no matter what president trump does they just cannot give them credit they don't want to talk about my track record of balancing budgets never raising taxes investing in infrastructure door triple a credit rating that happened on my watch they don't want to talk about my record out there trying to keep silent stuff that liberal **** to talent here in white liberal media they do not want African Americans to have a brain could think for themselves so we can this is I'm going to I am not going to be running through my term ends in twenty twenty one I'm just not gonna be on the ballot to be re elected I am in the market I'm finished with my term ends as opposed to just that down just completely there where I was going to be my my days would have been a a completion date or or the town I would into my term would have been on the twenty second of April but now I'm just complaining and can remain on opposition my position sensor out here and finish it out strong but that's just beginning it not about me Graham is a much bigger picture Mr let African Americans know that the Democratic Party has been taking your taking you for granted for sixty years hold them accountable hold them accountable and and also let them know that we have an agenda too and our gender is not necessary and their agenda and they are they have literally smother our conservative views of that they've just hijacked us and and I just can't when you want to compare J. and and don't get me wrong does not gate bash religion but gay rights and civil rights are not the same and the Democratic Party to try to take my hat off because there was a transgender who came to the capitol was who was just adamant about me signing the bill the the immigration bill and usually you how could you do this are you a black and I'm transgender with the same ads they want the whole stop right there see you on the hijacked the glue civil rights three generation gay rights but not the same you can decide what you want based on your emotions are your options that's on you you can make that decision aren't whatever day whatever time but as a as a black man from cradle to grave I can't disguise yes I can't change it I can't decide one day I want to be white or blue or gray I am black in and out so to try to compare to that's part of the problem their agenda has superseded the black agenda and we don't have the same thing in common and to respect people respect what they what they believe in I don't care about their business but don't try to compare to the Democratic Party wanted me to meet with the chair of the cartoons of the art you're listening caucused all what I'm I'm not going to change my mind what does happen in America reporter St up the street main there are six Amanda under attack now you know we can't be man like we used to be I mean respect for my parents raised me to be a respectful number it's but but they had a sexual man now is under attack a lot of things that this far right far left I should

"There was agreement on the depositions to be taken of two or three individuals Vernon Jordan and White House aide Sidney Blumenthal and and that they were made available later on it was a generally proceeding for those who recall twenty years ago it was dramatic when the house managers what what the charges walked from the house across the rotunda into the Senate presented to the clerk and that was dramatic several weeks later when the agreement took place between Daschle and Lott as to how the proceeding would continue the incense like rent quest was a potted plant go to senators by unanimous consent a great all the proceedings and then the the result was known some of the democratic senators kind of floated the idea of a a censure of the president which has some wind damage said except that he never really accepted a censure because the Republicans won a great one and as a consequence the vote was on one count forty five to fifty five on the other count was fifty fifty which means he was acquitted and in the next election Al Gore was not selected as our president barely bush forty one did win and now from that point on that has been the Templars to what's going to happen so whether this occurs on Wednesday when the Judiciary Committee gets that they're going to report out Monday and Tuesday tomorrow and Tuesday from the ship show in the intelligence committee we're gonna have a report and recommendations on charges to be given to the judiciary that allegedly on Wednesday or Thursday you're gonna hear from for liberal constitutional academics to say this is completely justified and of course the Republicans cannot present anyone to justify it not occurring because they don't allow it because because harbor the hud also known as the as the great house representative from New York is going to testify is going to say essentially that no one can no no one can say or do anything without my permission that's very unlikely this thing will be concluded in the next week or two likely a week before Christmas they're going to vote out of the house of representatives to actually impeach or charge the president with high crimes and misdemeanors and then let the games begin so I want to get your reaction this is so much more we have two lines open if you call rapidly eight six six six four seven seven three three seven coming up later is James person of newsmax TV report from the left coast of California it's got a great posting a newsmax TV about what he thinks gonna happen in in the in the Senate and also later on is Rick Henshall who's with the Catholic League in New York City about the candidacy of mayor Michael Bloomberg that many are going after so let's continue with more twenty minutes after the hour should the president be impeached what proceedings are gonna occur and how likely is it he'll be removed from office by United States Senate that takes a sixty six votes to do it and right now they have probably several Democrats to vote with the Republicans and not one Republican has said this activity viewed by some as improper which I do not view viewed by some as improper is sufficient to overturn the twenty sixteen election and make drop off the ballot possibly in twenty twenty now and impeach president removed from office can run for reelection that's certainly permissible and about the only Republican in the country that can win in twenty twenty is Donald John trump so let's continue with more bill cutting and the great American live with you every Sunday.

"He would have said, so instead, and he says, he would have said, so instead, the special counsel makes clear that obstruction of Justice, which he found substantial evidence of is a serious crime. The strikes, the core by Justice system, and that the constitution points to congress to take action to hold the president accountable. That's exactly what we will do. The president's response to repeatedly like the American people and ignore oil, congressional subpoenas is immoral and unlawful, no one is above the law, and we will hold the president accountable. Okay. So we'll see whether the Democrats move ahead. It's clear. The other democratic presidential candidates want that to happen, Andrew McCarthy over national review. He said earlier today that Muller, effectively left the door open to impeachment McCarthy said, I think it was Muller's responsibility to make a decision about whether there was a prosecutable case, and then it would have been up to the Torney general and the Justice department to decide whether to invoke the guidance. About whether a sitting president can be indicted, but whether I'm ready to wrong about that with Muller said was the reason we didn't draw conclusion about obstruction is because the president couldn't be charged anyway. So there was no point in indicting him. And then he suggested that in this system, the way you discipline. Presidential excess is not left to federal prosecutors. It's obvious. What Muller was doing here? This was not his mandate. Hey, Ken Starr under Bill Clinton was an independent council. He didn't just recommend impeachment in vague way he did. So openly you listed the charges that were then taken up by house. Republicans. I spoke with new Gingrich last week about this on Sunday special. And he pointed out that in this particular case, no crimes have actually been prosecuted or recommended for prosecution, Ken Starr, had a bevy of crimes, including open obstruction of Justice with Bill Clinton ordering people to lie to investigators, for example, Vernon Jordan, Monica Lewinsky all of that was in the star report. There's nothing like that, that is directly in the mullahs report. Nonetheless, Democrats pushing ahead, particularly the twenty. Twenty candidates, you know they're not going to have to pay a price for any of this. They can say whatever they want without any fear p Buddha. Judge says, yeah, this is an impeachment referral. Great for me. I don't have to vote on this thing. And hell, I'm the mayor of south bend. And nobody cares what I think other than in a presidential race. Anyway, he made a decision to not clear, the president based on the evidence. He gather he made clear that, that procedures of the DOJ won't be enough to establish accountability, but procedures do exist for a sitting president to be held accountable, and if the Justice department can't charge, a sitting president, with an actual crime that goes over to congress to decide whether to charge the president with a high crime. This is as close to an impeachment referral as you could get under the circumstances. Well, I think that, that is basically correct. But to Democrats have the grounds for that impeachment there we get into some rather a dicey territory. We'll get to more of the Democrats responding to Muller's presser today, because this is going to be our next round of politics, you thought Muller was done wrong, you are, we are going to get a year of impeachment talk. Oh, happy, happy day. We'll get to that in a second. I would you pay your hard earned money to join an organization that fought tooth and nail for government run healthcare, an organization that stood against tax cuts for middle class Americans, and small business owners wouldn't then why in the world would you join the AARP instead stand with nearly two million others by joining Amax, the conservative, alternative, instead, wouldn't you rather belong to an organization like a MAC fights for your values. Like protecting.

"What are the more intriguing Sundays at we're going to see all year long like you'll have Super Bowl Sunday. Okay. You'll have of opening day, but to me not only because it's sink Patty's day. But just in the fact that we get everything right? Like, we get all of the teams that are going to be sitting there waiting to see if their name is called, and that's one of my favorite traditions. Are this time of year? And in fact, what I wanna do is the selection special has come into this, huge huge orbit, right? Where they'll have the live footage of the teams. But now over the last couple of years we've shown everybody's feelings get hurt. So we don't do it anymore. I want to bring that back. I want every single bubble team to have. All right. I want every single bubble team to have the cameras on them to see whether or not they get in. I wanna see the agony of defeat. The thrill of victory. Joy, Gordon joining us because you know, that right? Like, this is this is when you are nervous as a college basketball fan to find out when your name does or does not get called a little bit later today. Yeah. This is the good kind of nervous for some of the college coaches as opposed to some of the nervousness that somebody's college coaches are dealing with currently in the landscape. That's a conversation. We'll get into later on in the show. But Peter, no question. I mean, I've been on both sides of this thing is a former player for Notre Dame back in two thousand one or two thousand five hundred Mike brain the beginning of his career before he stands where he does now is a winningest coach in Notre Dame basketball history. Surpassing digger Phelps, but my freshman season we were a bubble team. But we did enough down the stretch at the end of the season where we're comfortably watching. We had family and friends at coach brace house. It was just a matter of what seed we'd get ultimately we were in eighth seed my next season. We had a fantastic year. Notre Dame soul. Ourselves ride in the top ten for the better part of the year. We had no worries on selection Sunday, we found ourselves as a five seat the Sweet Sixteen my junior and senior year though, or things that I'm still dealing with working through by mid to late thirties now because we were consecutive seasons as an upperclassman the last team left out. So we went into Sunday Peter watching hoping pray that there wouldn't be any bid Steelers down the stretch Emmys conference tournaments, and we'd find our way. And if you ask me today, which you are I'm still very upset that we were left out. And that's a feeling you never get over his we we talk about that. A lot George Burns here on the best. We ever we talk about that on on whether Lott, athletes and teams and players and even sports fans. They remember the highest moments. Are they remembered the lowest moments right always wonder if they remembered the sports scars, so. For these teams that are going to go through today or the fans that are are patiently waiting to see what the selection committee says later, do you remember your name being selected more that first year or your name not being selected both at junior and senior season. Well, I kind of look at it. As like, you know, everybody's, you know, for those who are who are now happily married and have kids and in that position. It's a different story. But to the person who's still single and a look back on their life their dating life, and why they stayed where they do today. Do they better remember, Peter the woman that broke their heart? And why then the position they are. Or do you think about all the great relationships that they had and they just didn't work out for whatever reason, you tend to think about the one that ended so badly like if I ever see her walking down the street him and tell her how much I hate her what she's done to me and vice versa for a woman who's been impacted by man to me. That's how it's been like when I think back in my college career, and I was lucky to achieve some some some some success measured. Depending on who you talk to. But was able to leave as the all time leading shot blocker Notre Dame history. Brag about it. Tom. Comes off relatively easily. But yeah, that's something. But when I look back on the most it could talk about for the next two hours. Is that feeling I felt we got left out of the tournament. It's a tough one. And you watch the emotion on some of these teams that no when they lose that last game in the conference tournament. They kind of see the writing on the wall Indiana is not going back to Bloomington excited for today. At seventeen and fifteen and team has twelve of thirteen games at a mid point in the season to justify deserve to be in over say a Belmont. And you look at Belmont. And what twenty six and five is we start breaking down the bracket here on this election, Sunday special, basically, Peter burns, Jordan cornet here. You can tweet us on the one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed at Peter burns ESPN at Jordan coordinate because these are the teams right as much as we want to talk about it. We know and there'll be a lot of talk about which one of the number one who gets the number one seed, right? And there's probably L there might be three ACC teams that are going to be right on that on that number one bubble. But to me, it's the bubble that makes more sense. And I'll be honest with you. I I don't know anything about Belmont right favorite time of year. And I know you were doing this over not necessarily you. But people did this over at CBS. We do it at ESPN. You do it at Yahoo sports. We do it everywhere that everyone becomes a NC double a basketball expert for like three days or they read all the capsules. And when they're filling out there bracket, Belmont twenty six and five. I mean, they gotta be in. And then you're talking about Indiana, who what you're saying what twelve out of thirteen I pull for the the Belmont of the world. I mean, this is the week in which even television wants the Belmont of the world to get in. Because we're looking for the next Loyola Chicago, we want the next sister Jean we want the next Cinderella story. And and that's I think the purity of college basketball, and there's not a lot of things Jordan that we can actually say that are pure about this word of college basketball. So we sit here currently in twenty nineteen looking at not one not two, but probably three federal trials that are going to change everything in the way that we view this sport. Oh, yeah. No question. And that is the elephant in the room that is going to be something that looms large throughout coverage in March. Unfortunately for two people in me, and you the love this sport so much to understand that that is a part of this. It's gotta be. Taken with it. But you know, looking at a Belmont. It's so funny, man. Sweet. We've added a first four we've taken this thing. The Dayton we've increased a field, and there's talk to increase it, even more. But yet still here we are mired in the same issue. Do you take the the smaller schools who have the better win loss record but had been challenged? Or do we take the big dogs whose records are looming around five hundred but more impressive wins? Look belmont. They've beaten Murray state who's an attorney John Moran who I can't wait to watch. Yeah. They beat UCLA whose terrible terrible. But who has a very good, and they beat Lipscomb those wins at Belmont gonna hang their hat on. They've lost to Jacksonville state. They've lost to Green Bay and they didn't win their conference tournament. So if you're Indiana, you say we swept Michigan state we've done this. We've done that. How do you argue that what what's the right answer in your opinion? Peter. There's no doubt to me the right answer for the NCAA committee. Is you give me as many underdogs as possible? Now, we're gonna talk to Greg sheen who Shaheen who is was part of that into AA committee. Right. He was part of the whole executive director of basketball who put this this tournament together. He'll join us in about an hour and twenty because that's what I want the committee to do. Honestly wanna see them put every single underdog. That's available. And that's thinks the teams like Indiana thinks that teams like Alabama's stinks to the bigger squads. But I look at this year in RBIs. Intrigued about this NCAA tournament as I have been in. I don't know. Maybe maybe ten years Jordan, who's your team just for just for those out there wondering who who do you root for go Tigers LSU, I'm born and raised. Listen, we need seven hours to unpack everything about what's happened with LSU basketball. But what I mean by that is that I've got Duke I've gotten North Carolina. Tennessee, Kentucky Virginia Villanova ATI. All the great names. I got enough of the star power and the NC double late-term it already. Give me the Belmont. Gimme the next Loyola Chicago's of it. And that's what I want. If you're in the incidental a committee, and you're driving to the conference room in which you're picking off your spreadsheets today. Do us all favor here at ESPN radio. Peter Vernon Jordan cornet we just want the underdogs. That's what we want. All right. There's no sense in not talking about this Zion. Williamson is no underdog, and I will tell you coming up why the whole knee in shoe issue was by far the best thing that ever happened to him. Peter Vernon Jordan cornet this best week ever on ESPN radio, your radio,.

And a lot more. We'll we'll talk about a lot of current issues with Michael. Tomorrow night. I think I'm just going to leave it in open lines. You don't have about a million guests lined up, but I'm just gonna leave it in open lines. Friday night disclosure ninety nine we will have. We're gonna we're guests that I don't even have listed yet. We're just gonna have all kinds of guests on Friday night. All the big guns. The big games and follow and world strain will be here. So that'll be Friday night. And you're going to want to set something to record that for sure. Well, let us examine I what seems to be going on in the world House Republicans hope to compel testimony by Monica Lewinsky, Vernon Jordan and other witnesses at the president's trial on the eve, this is the eve of that trial unless you're in a eastern time zone, which is a day of the trial the senate's first presidential impeachment proceedings in one hundred and thirty years. White House officials made an unexpected late night visit to the capitol to discuss ground rules on the opening day of the one hundred and six congress. Senate majority leader Trent Lott Republican Mississippi expressed optimism that agreement was near on procedure for a quote, full trial and. A full trial. You think will really do that? I my guess is there's going to be a deal. Could there be a full trial? We'll have to wait and see. Let's see amid gestures of partisan amity the hundred and six congress convened Wednesday. The new house speaker. And so, of course, everybody's nice to him for about twenty four hours. Dow Jones at a new high ninety five forty four ninety seven. Ooh. The NBA basketball strike would appear to be over. The question is do you care? Well. I guess each team team is gonna play they say about fifty games instead of thirty. Great. So in other words, they're going to try to catch up with the games. They missed they are not going to do that. Totally. Well, I guess this ends the support your favorite NBA player program. You may recall last night that I told you that ABC news dot com. Had in their discussion. They were discussing millennium madness millennium. Cults and that kind of thing, and they actually had named see city as one well, they withdrew it. They have. They've withdrawn somebody quietly has retracted the reference to Dr Steven Greer and see city in their article. So congratulations ABC for doing the right thing. Good for you. Glad you're hurt us. The Associated Press. I love this. Up in Redmond, Washington Microsoft Corporation. According to the software giant. Announced today that the release of its new windows. This is not a joke. This AP story. It's new windows two thousand maybe it is a joke. Windows two thousand operating system will be delayed until the first quarter of one thousand nine hundred eighty one. I think that's a real story. But I'm not sure. Boy. And I'm getting now just flooded with reports about why two k. Astronomers searching for mysterious missing matter in the universe now focusing on a brand new theory about ghost galaxies ghost galaxy. So isn't that intriguing? They contain few stars, but are surrounded by dense haloes of invisible dark matter and analysis of analysis of forty-three such galaxies now that small indeed ghostly galaxies that appeared to be little more than fuzz balls powerful telescopes actually contain high densities of dark matter with only a scattering of visible stars. Cloud of dark matter. Now dark matter accounts for a lot of what they've been unable to account for previously. Now, ask me how warm and fuzzy I feel about the following story traces of plutonium now, this is something plutonium is something that you do not want in your diet. If possible from a test blast in the Nevada desert appear to have migrated now at least a mile through groundwater. Right. This has prompted the government to recalculate slightly. They see the risks that would be posed by an underground nuclear waste storage site. Now..

"The I've been wanting to talk about the which is the Brian Williams one, and it doesn't bother me because of the conclusions about Brian Williams, which may total sesame, but the premise of this episode is basically about memory, you remember how we get things wrong. And there's this concept of flash bulb memory, which maybe you can explain really quickly member is a hugely important event dramatic event. Brief dramatic event which kind of forces itself on your memory. And you talk to the researchers who study memory, and they find that oftentimes people remember these events, and that's the sort of premise of the Brian Williams thing is that he's sort of pilloried for essentially injecting himself into a situation that didn't happen to him. He was there. And then your conclusion is I'm butchering you're losing possibly. But it's basically like he's innocent of that. Because we all miss remember things. And that's probably what happened. But is where I went from. There was then it really in some way, doesn't it? Call into question the sort of whole project of what we are doing in terms of going and asking people for their memories. And then relying those memories to people, obviously, did it make you think that totally I always think that I, you know, the first and most important lesson I learned to Washington Post reporter was. That I was twenty three whatever it was twenty two started. This paper start reporting stories, and I think that Wentz I asked someone to tell me what happened my sumptious. That was correct. And then the corrections the next day correction start to pile up and shirt to get into more trouble with your editor. Because you're getting things wrong guy. Didn't get that. Ron he told me that. And then it dawns on you. Oh, what people? Remember is more often than not incorrect this they're lying to you. It's just that. They don't memory is so rife with air. That's why we employ reporters to do their job. That's why you have to call more than one person. You got call like three people and walk around the thing. And you gotta get some, you know, documentary evidence from year to do your job. Otherwise, you're gonna get in trouble. And you you will lose your job in journalism until you'll understand and take to heart the frailty of human memory. Took a long time for me to grasp that, but anyone any lawyer or journalist knows this who's experienced just takes his for granted the rest of the world. However, if you're not in a position where you're continually exposed to the frailty of memory, you fall into this default mode of thinking, oh, if so and so said, they were there they were there will actually probably went there. Right or they maybe with everybody different time. Or, you know, it's just like there's a moment in one of my chapters in my book is about the sent us case, there's the guy who sees the boy in the shower with send dusky, and then he goes, and he tells people Penn State, right? That's the how that whole thing starts a really really interesting sidebar semi important, but not about when what date does he go tell Joe Paterno. But what he saw and he's initially off by year. Says it was March of this year, and it turns out to be much of the previous year. That is not because he's lying or because it wasn't a traumatic memory or because anything it's because we get dates mixed up. Right. We do. Right. But then so when you're when you're telling us sort of more narrative story, like if you're trying to compile the facts of a situation, you are willing to double check, those facts, you can't rely on what people say, but I'm thinking samples from even Vernon Jordan in one of the business history is describing walking down the street this very genetic code when he's just lost the final of appeals who's about to be executed, very very dramatic and powerful thing to hear him describe it..
