"When he punches him in the face with the giant bag of money, I enjoyed that. That was pretty good. When me over, I was very happy with the movie at this point. So then we get the credits proper or second credits, I guess. And we jump to 13 years later they're on the Mayflower heading to the new world. And William Bradford is narrating, oh, it's been a hard trip. Many of us are, I wanted one person on the book to be like, hey, William, do you mind not narrating how much this thing you did sucks? All very hungry and thirsty. It's a good thing I brought plenty of ink in a giant barrel to write this instead of packing more food. Thank you. Right, yeah, exactly. And of course, they have to sell the lie. They're like only the new world can offer what we seek, religious freedom, and it's like, no, no, no, no. At this point, you're running from the fact that your kids are getting all Holland. Right? You were already allowed anyway, yeah. But what we learned here is that William is kind and humble and sets about resolving arguments when people try to throw that nice old man's Jack overboard. Okay, I am so excited about the truth of this story because I was like, this is such a weird detail to put in and apparently like a bunch of the Bradford history's focus on this miracle of the Jack. Let's hope this never means masturbating. What happened was during the storm, the captain came down and he was like, hey, you guys brought a bunch of unnecessary construction equipment. Please throw it overboard, so we don't sink and William Bradford was like, no, I'm keeping my excavator in the bottom of this book. And like the captain said, the masthead crashed into the bottom of the boat. And the way William Bradford does the story, the problem he caused. He was like, great. Now we can use my construction equipment to fix. Sorry,.

"Hey everybody, welcome to this special Thanksgiving episode of the Charlie Kirk show with my friend, the legendary. James golden. Otherwise known as Beau snored James, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Surely it is so good to be here, especially Thanksgiving. Wow, what a great what a great. Charlie, I love your casual look. Thank you. I appreciate that. You know, sometimes you just got to be able to move about, you know, and the suit and tie, you know, maybe I could graduate to just the polo shirt like rush used to do, right? Right, right? Yeah. Just the polo shirt. But say something, you just mentioned Russian. Let me just say something to everybody that doesn't know. Rush really made a big deal of how much he enjoyed meeting you Charlie and how vital he thought you were to the future of this nation. And I've told you that too many times over. It may rush and I had many a discussion about you, Charlie, we both talked about you to each other and what our expectations. I'm sorry, yeah, we have expectations of you. What our expectations were because when we see in you, what Russia knew what I see in you and I've told you this from the very beginning. You are a natural leader of people. You have a charisma about you that you can't, I mean, look, you can't teach anybody how to do this. You have natural leadership qualities. And what you've been able to do with turning point and what you've been able to do just in the past few years with organizing people, especially young people in this country is nothing short of phenomenal. Thank you. And rush love the time that he spent with you. He talked about you on the air and how impressed he was with you and what you're doing and we just are also grateful to you and the work that you're doing moving the conserve, not just conservative, but you're moving a very an optimistic American message into the next generation and into the future. Well, thank you. That touches me. And we miss him, but I want to say James, you played a role in the growth at turning point. You spoke at our conferences for years, and we were just small little group at the local hotel, remember? You would always show up and look how far we've come. It's really, it's really amazing. So thank you for saying that. And you have a book out. Rush on the radio. Tell us about that. You know, it is what I hope Charlie to do is to give people a behind the scenes look at who Russian bought really was not as defined by his critics on the left who never listened to the program who never took the time to really delve into who rushed them but was what it was about. And also to give people kind of a behind the scene looks at what it was like working with him. And I bet about my own background on how we came to work together. So one of the things that I hope that we accomplished in this book is not only was rushed in amazing professional at what he did. He earned every single accolade that he got in terms of for his success as a broadcaster. And as the best broadcaster of our times, and he earned that through hard work through perseverance do not giving up when there were many times where his career could have stalled permanently, but he just kept going at it. And then he had the most amazing success. So yes, rush was the most important broadcaster to me of our generation. If it were not for his success in reviving a.m. radio, first of all, when it was when it's death throes. And then his program brought in a rash of other talk shows. It grew talk radio into a medium that played a large role in shaping and still does America's body politic and also our culture. But he also impacted what we see on television. And the cable news landscape. And the publishing landscape, especially for conservative authors because of the multi-million sales he had as an author. And then with children's book with he and his wife Catherine. This man left an amazing footprint for American radio television and print. And that just touches the surface of it. I mean, my political journey started listening to WOS and Chicago. Rush Limbaugh from it would be let me think about this. It would be from 11 central to two. That's right. Just make sure I get it right. And my lunch used to be from one 17 to two O three. And so I used to go to my old silver Ford explorer and listen to rush and I was like, who is this guy? He gives me the courage and the confidence to say what I really believe. And that was when rush was just dominating. That was back in 2010, 2011, not that he never stopped dominating. He was always dominant, but that was a time when he kind of really created the Tea Party movement. And in some sense, it's when all of a sudden a.m. radio then became an actual political movement, which was something that was really special. And so this being Thanksgiving James talked to us a little bit and again, the book is, I want everyone to pick it up. Rush on the radio by James golden talk to us what rush used to do on Thanksgiving or the day before Thanksgiving that he really got famous for. Rush wrote in his first book, the way things ought to be a chapter about what he called old dead white guys. And there was well in it, he talked about the original Thanksgiving and how what we learned in school Thanksgiving the Native Americans coming to save the pilgrims butts wasn't the real story of Thanksgiving. The real story of Thanksgiving through the eyes of William Bradford and the first colony that tried to empty successfully come here and start a colony. And they failed the first time because they tried a collectivism approach, a socialist approach, where everybody would work collectively toward one toward one greater goal. And what happened? Was it some people were lazy? They didn't see the benefit of working hard so that others benefited. And as a result, the first attempt to colonize led to horror, I mean starvation difficulties in order time. Now Bradford, William Bradford saw the error of his ways. And what they tried next was an approach where every family would have their own plot of land to work. As hard or as little as they wanted to. And what this produced was prosperity because people saw the value in working for themselves and how an individual effort took over and prosperity came, and this is what they were thankful for. The success and they shared this bounty with the Native Americans. That was the truth story of Thanksgiving. If you want to boil it down to the parlors today, it was the battle between socialism and capitalism and capitalism, one, and as a result, in American society, we still to a large degree or to some degree, have a capitalist mentality where it is up to you and your individual achievement and desire and ambition to succeed. And if you have all of those things, America is still a land of opportunity. That's so beautiful. And rush would he had a famous kind of Christmas series he would do and a famous Thanksgiving series he would do. Talk to us more about the man of that rush was just his optimism doing three hours of radio a day. I could say from personal experience, two hours is.

"Months brought but little relief Despite the agricultural guidance from their native Friends prosperity seemed to be continually further and further out of reach Their communal agreement was falling apart under the weight of low morale Young men grew to resent the amount of physical labor they were taking on just to have the lion's share of their efforts go to feeding the families of other men Governor William Bradford wrote of the troubles in his journals The failure of this experiment of communal service which was tried for several years and by good and honest men proves the emptiness of the theory of Plato and other ancients applauded by some of later times but the taking away of private property and the possession of it in community by a Commonwealth would make a state happy and flourishing as if they were wiser than God For in this instance community of property was found to breed much confusion and discontent But the young men that were able and fit for labor and service objected that they should spend their time and strength working for other men's families And the women were unhappy too They considered it a kind of slavery he says and many husbands would not brook it This feature would have been worse still if they had been men of an inferior Class Provisions began to dry up the community began to fail They didn't have a way out until Bradford saw that there needed to be another form of governance And so he took it upon himself to search descriptors to see what God might have to say The governor decided to assign every family their own plot of land according to the number of people in each family And he allowed them to plant crops to benefit their own households and sell excess crops in production No longer would the labor of a household be divided unjustly You reap what you so became the law of the colony and the results were immediate Bradford wrote of the astonishing change in attitude in his colonists saying this was very successful Bounty began to pour forth from the colony and soon they were able to set up trading outposts and began trading resources with their neighbor with their native neighbors Three years after that first disastrous harvest season governor William Bradford decreed a day of Thanksgiving for the pilgrim colony They gathered together to worship and thank the almighty God What we don't know exactly if they invited their Indian neighbors We do know that they were there These days we teach the story of Thanksgiving is only a tale of pilgrims holding a feast to think their Native American neighbors for their help But this is not the day that we necessarily recognize as a first official Thanksgiving of a united country but we can look at it as the origin of what we know as Thanksgiving And while our infant nature would go on to endure tumultuous and even embarrassing times the stories of this first Thanksgiving serve as proof that this nation was founded on the notion that only freedom can offer prosperity Collectivism nearly sunk the American experiment before it began But the spirit of individual liberty and innovation found a way to thrive and that is our rightful legacy Our forefathers learned the hard way so that we today in this awesome wonderful bountiful nation could have the luxury of doing nothing else One day a year but taking the time to offer thanks to our creator surrounded by friends and allies just like the pilgrims on that first Thanksgiving Ladies and gentlemen that is the truncated version of the first Thanksgiving here in America You can hear the full thing on my podcast just.

"Are paying one hundred thousand dollars to travel into space The whole ozone layer this whole back in the eighties. Right remember that well. They decided to ban cfc with the idea of protecting the ozone layer. Because guess what if we don't have the ozone layer basically We all just get caught on fire. The whole planet just burns okay. We all get radiation. It's a mess. It's not a good thing There's not a good scenario without an ozone layer so they actually did some stuff here and said. Hey let's try to stop this so banning the cfc's it looks like it's actually working yet. We finally have some good news on the whole climate change frontier because not only is it helping to make the ozone hole smaller but it is also shaving. A few degrees off of global warming so good job eighties us. We did great on this. I actually i just did. A couple of episodes three episodes to be exact on climate change global warming. The first one was about the financial impact of climate change. And then i did something on the wildfires smoke and then the water so check those out. It's over on learning more. There's a link in the podcast description. Here it's episode number sixteen seventeen and eighteen of learning more. Please do go check that out if you get a chance. It is also national working parents day today now both parents working how many of us are dealing with that about forty. Six percent of households are dealing with with the mother and father working and that is for the households with a mother and father. That's how they did the research and now at least one parent being employed. Well that's eighty eight percent of families with children. Now that's actually down from ninety one percent the previous year and i guess there's covert to blame for that and so here's the thing. A lot of us are working from home. Now right and national working parents day we got to think about working from home and being a parent and that can be a little tough right well. Because you know you're bringing your work home with you literally. You're not leaving your office ever. You could literally never stop working. But let's think of some of the advantages here. Well you know this means that maybe there's time for making dinner. Maybe there's time for taking a break in the middle of the day and go throwing a ball with your kid or just picking him up dropping him off from school. Whatever it is work life balance is very important. Make sure you shut off that computer to certain time in walkaway from those devices so that you do get that time with your kids for especially for today from national working parents. Day is also national. Step family day to day and looking at that. Same data from the previous story there well over thirty percent of the population under eighteen. Live in a stepfamily. So here's a day for you. And of course i had mentioned the brady bunch i mean. Come on the most famous stepfamily of all. It is also national. Plato day today. And as i mentioned in the open there i love the smell. I don't know why maybe it just takes me back. To childhood thing was though plato. Originally it wasn't meant to be a toy. it was actually meant to be a wallpaper cleaner seventies. is that right. Yeah joe mcvicker Made this stuff. It was a simple mixture was basically water flour and salt. Those are the main ingredients of and may turn it into a toy. They made red blue yellow and white. And as we're the only brands now of course there's about fifty different colors available. Of course if you make something then it all just turns into that weird gray color it is also national cinnamon raisin bread day today per slice yet about one hundred calories in this thing which since. We did the story on the boston cream doughnut. I believe that was three hundred calories. So you can have three slices of cinnamon raisin bread or one of those boston cream donuts from dunkin. Choose whatever you want. I won't judge. It is national guacamole day today as well and this one. I'm going to judge on. 'cause i love me some guacamole and if you don't make a right not going to be happy. So what do you do. I'll tell you some ways to make it but first let's talk about. The origins of this comes from central mexico. Where avocados just grow naturally right there. There and aztecs were there so they started kind of making guacamole and guess what they didn't call the avocado and avocado originally. It was called an alligator pear. I think that's actually united states. That gave it that horrible name but eventually it would become avocado. I can't imagine eating alligator pear toast at just doesn't work anyway. So here's what you do for guacamole. First of all you can either. You got an option here. If you like chunky then you're gonna use one of those Like potato masters. If you don't like it chunky like it more creamy than us a couple of folks. I squish it down with a couple of folks i and you know all you have to do really is add some garlic and some salt and some lime and you are good that is all you need typically for guacamole but you can also add some of the same ingredients that you would add until like salsa fresco. You know tomatoes and some sort of chili type of things onions. You can do that. But i like it just like you know. I like to taste the avocado. So only putting all that other stuff in there. We'll garlic little salt little lime. That's all you need by the way the largest serving of walk molly ever well. That was eight thousand. Three hundred and fifty one pounds and that was achieved in mexico for the avocado festival in twenty eighteen year. Wonder how much to charge for that charge. Like five dollars for a spoonful anyway. Let's take a look. At our historical events. Starting sixteen twenty. The pilgrims set sail on the mayflower from england. Yeah okay not exactly the best time to sail across the ocean especially back then right now. They were originally said to leave at the start of summer but there were delays in getting supplies so it didn't quite work out for them so there you go. They left on this day. They spent sixty six days at sea only to arrive in an unfamiliar place in the of winter because it was winter you know they can really set up camp properly and only fifty of the one hundred and two. Pilgrim's survived through that very difficult winter. Now here's the thing. French and dutch colonies were already fishing and gathering along the east coast of the. What would be later called the united states. By the time the mayflower arrived and the spanish will they had already settled. Florida like decades early. So when we learn so much in history about the pilgrims why is that well it could be because maybe the you know the brits want or so those who win gets tell the story but it also could be that william bradford one of the pilgrims aboard the mayflower kept a journal and he kept his journal for nearly three decades and those injuries within the journal contained much of the history of that time. Okay we had so many days to talk about so much information to go through just about guacamole really couldn't cover all of the events so let's tell you some of the other ones real quick here. One thousand nine hundred general motors corporation was in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight richard. Nixon appeared on. Laugh in in nineteen eighty-four miami vice premiered and in one thousand nine hundred ninety four. There was a fire in the lighthouse. Smokey electrical fire not too much damage.

America Has a Drinking Problem

"Okay so when exactly did american start drinking. Was it at the start of america. Yeah literally so the reason sort of unbelievably or one of the reasons. I should say that. The mayflower landed at plymouth. Rock is because the ship was running low on beer people back then drink beer instead of water or they preferred it to water. Same and the sailors freaked out. And they thought that at the rate that they and pilgrims. We're drinking the beer. They won't have enough beer to get them back to england's so rather than sail on to the mouth of the hudson which had been the plan they pull the shore and kick the pilgrims off and that is why the pilgrims landed at plymouth rock. Of course the truth may have been a little more complicated than what was indicated in their diaries as they complained bitterly that winter about the beer and having been kicked off there were other things going on it was december. The weather was bad. The food was running low but the beer was a big part of the picture. People are dying in there. Like where's the booze yeah right. So william bradford who would go on to be the governor of the plymouth colony for thirty years that winter in his diary couldn't stop talking about the beer dearest diary. It has been another long and thirsty. Day here at the plymouth colony. How i long for the cool sweet feeling of a droplet of beer rolling down my throat part. That's not real. Almost half of the pilgrims were going to die that winter and the is what he was worried about now to be fair people back then. Were very leery of water. There had been problems with water. Purity in england and they thought that beer was safer nonetheless. They really enjoyed their liquor

The Years (plural) Without A Christmas

"Of christmas it is indulgence. Christmas has long been time to break out the good booze and gorge yourself on sweet desserts made with expensive imported spices. To say nothing of the gift giving you know who didn't like all of those things oliver cromwell when he and his puritan forces took over england in sixteen forty five. They vowed to do away with decadence and went full. Alan rickman sheriff of nottingham and cancelled. Christmas shops were ordered to stay open on december. Twenty fifth and soldiers patrolled the streets with orders to seize any and all food. They found being prepared for a feast. It would take no less than restoring a king to the throne in this case. Charles the second to get christmas back. Puritans weren't exclusive to their native england and a bunch of them thought the spoiled beauty of the new world could really use some severe self-denial the puritans we refer to as pilgrims and about whom many myths were dispelled in. Our recent thanksgiving episode were even more orthodox in their puritanism than cromwell bonus fact that parallels the split between the amish and the mennonites. The amish broke off because the mennonites weren't strict enough since the puritans were among the first europeans to establish themselves in what would become america celebrating. Christmas was not a thing. It wasn't simply that they didn't celebrate it themselves. They didn't want anyone to celebrate the holiday. They had dubbed fools tied as an england shops and schools were expected to be open though. Interestingly churches were ordered to be closed on christmas one of the two days a year when even the laziest christian can be bothered to turn up. It was more than the frivolity and gluttony that they minded they viewed it as not properly christian. Puritans followed the bible very strictly. If something wasn't in the bible like taking any day for rest other than a sunday it might as well have come straight from the devil that would include the idea of resting on the day that jesus was born but since the bible also doesn't specify what day that is no big loss s historian stephen this inbound explains puritans were fond of saying that if god had intended for the anniversary of the city to be observed he would surely have given some indication as to when that anniversary occurred. The date of december twenty fifth wasn't officially the mass of christ until the fourth century. When pope julius the first subsumed the roman festival of saturnalia into a christian celebration. Which gave us some of our most enduring traditions like holly in candles. Puritans were also not keen on the papacy so they didn't care if it was official for twenty two years from sixteen fifty nine to sixteen eighty one. The celebration of christmas was actually outlawed. In the massachusetts bay colony the law went into effect one year after the brits had gotten their christmas restored by well the restoration the laws stated that in order to prevent disorders to the great dishonour of god and offensive others. Anyone found celebrating the holiday. Either by forbearing of labor feasting or any other way would be find a hefty five shillings on one christmas day. Plymouth governor william bradford noticed some people playing an old equivalent of baseball and ordered them all to get back to work. Now would be an appropriate time. If i make an aside and i may because it's my show to remind people that religious freedom is when you say that's against my religion. I can't do it but religious freedom does not mean that's against my religion. You can't do it. Even after the ban on christmas was repealed in sixteen. Eighty one staunch puritans still fought against christmas celebrations for decades in sixteen eighty six. The newly appointed governor of the dominion of new england closed shops on christmas day and sponsored a holiday service. This idea was unpopular enough with enough people. That soldiers had to accompany the governor to church. Those sorts of protests of christmas would continue but their focus would shift from celebrating at all to the way in which it was celebrated and what a way it was. We aren't talking about a family sing. Song and three helpings of pie or even old timey whistling colonial celebrations of christmas looked more like mardi gras mashed with halloween. If it took place during spring break drunken revellers take to the streets wearing scary masks or dressed like animals singing boisterously and demanding food drink and money under threat of violence ad in the ancient pagan roots of those practices. And we see that. The puritans had quite a lot to get their noses out of joint about boston minister. Cotton mather preached to his congregation more than thirty years. After the law's repeal the feast of christ's nativity is spent in reveling dicing carding masking. And in all licentious liberty by mad mirth by long eating by hard-drinking i- lewd gaming await. Those are meant to be bad things. After the american revolution or the kerfuffle of ungrateful colonials as the british call at surreal thing. You don't have to google it. Just trust me. English customs fell out of favor and since celebrating. Christmas had come over from england. It began to peter out to. It wasn't even declared a federal holiday until after the civil war in eighteen seventy. It was around that time that americans. Reinvented christmas and it changed from a raucous pagan carnival. Holiday into a family centered. Day of nostalgia nostalgia used to be considered a mental illness by the way. But that's a story for another day. So why the shift. The early nineteenth century was a period of class conflict high employment and of rioting by the lower classes that tended to come to a head around christmastime one such christmas riot in eighteen twenty eight moved the newark city council to institute. The city's first police force in response. This motivated certain members of the upper class to change the way. People viewed christmas literary figures like washington irving the man who helped co defy the until recently launched view of christopher columbus in eighteen nineteen. Urban wrote the sketch book of geoffrey crayon gent a series of stories about the celebration of christmas in an english manor house wherein the rich person invites pour into his home and the two classes of people get along swimmingly and celebrate with quote ancient customs. As nice as that is it's worth noting that the details of the books revelry don't parallel any celebration. We know of irving actually attending and seems to have been completely imagined. It's the season of giving and you

One of their ships. They had £800 of beaver skins. They sent it back to England and Lo and behold. A Turkish man of war. A Muslim ship captures it in the English Channel takes the crew to Morocco insult him into slavery. William Bradford says that because of the ship taken by the church, all trade was dead. And in that year alone, 16 25. The Turkish Barbary pirates had captured over 1000 people from brick in from all these little islands in the coast, and they would go up and raid it and take my way as prisoners.

And so here's William Bradford talking about the emptiness of the theory of Plato and it says, quote that taking away of private property and the possession of it in the community. By a Commonwealth would make a state happy, enforcing as if they were wiser than God. For in this instance, community of property was found to breathe much confusion and discontent and we retard much employment, which would have been to the general benefit. For the young men, who were most able unfit for service objected to being forced to spend their time and strength and working for other men's wives and Children without any recompense. And the strongman and the resourceful men had no more share of food clothes accepted in the week who was not able to do a quarter of the work. This will start in injustice. And the agent and graver men. We're ranked and equalized in labor food. XO with the young with the humbler and younger ones thought it was an indignity and disrespect for them. As for men's wives, who were obliged to do service for other men, such as cooking, washing their clothes, etcetera. They considered it a kind of slavery, and many husbands would not brook it would not allow it like and I let my wife could watch them. Hills was closed and then William Bradford says. Fall with the share alike in all were to do like, then all would be on inequality to up and one was his good as another. And so it did greatly diminished the mutual respect that is so important that should be preserved amongst them. But none argue that this is due to human failing rather than to the Communistic plan of life itself. I answer, saying that all men have this failing and then that God in his wisdom saw that another plan of life was fitter for them, And then he goes on to say, so they began to consider how to raise more corn and obtain a better crop than they might have done. And so they would endure the misery of want at length. After much debate, the governor allowed each man to plant corn for his own household. Had to trust themselves for that. In all other things to go on as before. So every family was assigned a parcel of land and according to the proportion of their number, this was very successful. It made all hands very industrious so that much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been by any other beings the governor could have devised. And saved him a great deal of trouble. The women now went willingly into the field and took their little ones with them to plant corn while before they would allege weakness and inability. And to have compelled them would have been thought, great tyranny and oppression. Here you have the Pilgrim's experimenting with communism, and they said, this is not gonna work. And I mean it's so funny to think that so much of how America ended up being has its roots in these few years. Among these few people In Plymouth Colony. It's extraordinary. They really end up being the template for so much that follows. We're going to go to a break, folks. I'm talking to William Federer.

"Given his freedom. He hitchhikes his way across England. He's working in England getting jobs for years. Finally he gets dropped off at the shore of Massachusetts the winter before the pilgrims land on Lee to find that all of this tribe were dead. William Bradford. Gripes of three years earlier, a French ship had shipwrecked of Cape Cod. The sailors got ashore. The Indians never left watching them and dogging them till they got the advantage killed them all. But three or four And evidently these guys must have some illness. The Indians caught it and wiped out the tribe. Which, ironically, almost providentially had Squanto not then taken captive and sold as a slave. He would have died in that. That's what's so amazing, you forgot turns it around. I have to say this Cuando stories when I wrote a book of Children's book about Squanto on, But I also contributed. Put the Squanto story in My book, If you can keep It is one of the most fascinating stories. In our history, just absolute proof or at least strong evidence of the hand of Providence in our history. It's it's mind blowing what happens, But I don't wanna get in the way of your story. I'll tell the Squanto story another time. It's but it is truly Amazing one of the most amazing stories I've ever heard. So so, yes, if it weren't for Squanto, the pilgrims may well have returned to England toward the Holland. Yeah, And so he taught him how to catch beavers. It took 40 years or the beaver skins to pay off their debt for that boat, right? He taught him how to go down to the river and squeezing in the mud, catch eels and clams and taught him how to catch fish and plant corn and shake the corn over a fire. Make popcorn and and he was an interpreter. So we put him on good terms with the other Indian tribes, so they didn't have the battles of Jamestown head, but I thought this was interesting breath. William Bratton writes that Two years later, they were sailing in the bay and the freezing rain catches them off Court guard. They couldn't get back to land, and it says they put in at a island and it says here, Squanto all fell ill of Indian fever, baby, Much of the nose would hang hang on. Because this is such a dramatic moment. We're going to go to a break. Hey, there, folks. How many years have I been telling you about relief factor? What, like four. The truth is, I know there are millions of people. In fact, some say over 100 million people struggling with some kind of pain, maybe from exercise just getting older that could do it getting older, Which is why I am so impressed with Pete and Seth tell that they are on a mission. You rarely see this kind of focus and commitment seriously. They recently shared with me that they're doubling down and want to literally double their total number of happy customers in the next year, And I believe they'll do it. So here's the deal if your struggle With back next shoulder, hip or knee pain, even general muscle aches and pains that I'm suggesting you order their three week quick start still discounted toe only 1995 about a dollar a day to see if we can get you out of pain, too.

They're going to renounce the whole America First thing. What we're doing here is a little bit more important. Might his Cabinet announcement here, so I want To get back to where we left off William Bradford. The governor of the Pilgrim community. Saw that none of this was working. The Mayflower Compact was not working, giving everybody a single share of stock in the common store in the common bank Woz. Not working. Collectivism. It was. It was as costly and destructive to the Pilgrim's as it is, and has been to anybody who has ever tried it. So Bradford decided to scrub it. He just he threw it out. And took bold action. He assigned a plot of land to each family. Every family was given. Plot of land. They could work it, manage it. How ever they wanted to? If they just wanted to sit on it Get fat, dumb, happy and lazy. They could if they wanted to develop it. If they wanted to grow corn, whatever on it, they could. If they wanted to build on it. They could do that if they wanted to turn it into a wave. Quays. I business they could do whatever they wanted to do with it. He turned loose the power of the capitalist marketplace. Long before Karl Marx was even born long before Karl Marx was a sperm cell in his father's dreams. The pilgrims had discovered and experimented with what could only be described as socialism. And they found that it didn't work night. It wasn't called that then. That's exactly what it was. Everybody was given an equal share. You know what happened? Nobody did anything There was. No, there was no incentive. Nothing worked. Nothing happened. What Bradford and his community found. Was that the most creative and industrious people had no incentive to work any harder than anybody else did. Unless They could utilize the power personal motivation. But while most of the rest of the world's been experimenting with socialism Over 100 years longer now. Trying to refine it perfected, reinvented the pilgrims. Decided early on to scrap it permanently. What Bradford wrote. About this experiment should be in every school child History lesson if it were We might prevent so much suffering. We might have prevented this election. If the true story of Thanksgiving had been taught for years and years and years. And I'll tell you what Bradford wrote and how they fixed it.

On the journey across the Atlantic. You talk about something that had to be frightening and scary. The Mayflower was not much Bigger than a 50 ft boat. 102 people on it. On the journey, William Bradford set up an agreement. The contract if you will. That established Just and equal laws for all members, all 40 members of this pilgrim community. Didn't matter what their religious beliefs were These Were the laws. They were all agreeing to live by. Now, Where did these laws these ideas come from? We're talking to the Mayflower Compact is what Bradford wrote. The Mayflower compact derived from the Bible. Pilgrims were a people. Completely steeped. In the Bible, Old and New Testaments. They were devoutly religious people. No matter what else has said about them, and even that is denied they were devoutly religious. They looked to the ancient Israel lights for much of their example. And because Of the biblical precedent set forth and Scripture. They never doubted because of their faith in God, that their experiment would work. They never doubted they would get to the new world. They never doubted it. Once they got there, they would thrive. The journey was long it was arduous. It was dangerous. And when they finally landed When the pilgrims finally landed in New England in November, according to William Bradford's detailed journal, they found a cold, barren, desolate wilderness. Imagine New England, as it exists today has nothing but rocks. Forest undeveloped nature. In November. And getting.

"Learned to farm the land of their new home. They celebrated with the natives who had taught them how to survive. The real story of Thanksgiving, however, came the following year. Colony did not as we were taught suddenly prosper. In fact, the first year is after the first Thanksgiving. We're nearly as bad as the first year in Plymouth. Quite simply, the Pilgrims didn't know how to run their colony. They knew they wanted to avoid this sort of economic serfdom. They had fled in England, but beyond that, they weren't quite sure how to govern themselves. No one could have been What they were doing was essentially on heard of in human history, leaving the comfort of modern civilization for the untamed wilderness. So they did. The only thing they felt would be fair. Decided to share equally among themselves, everything that they were able to produce as a colony. But the two following harvest seasons were nearly as barren as the first. Why, because the pilgrims didn't factor in human nature. His Plymouth Colony. Governor William Bradford noted for the young men that were able and fit for Labor and service did refine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men's wives and Children. Without recompense. The strong or men of parts, said no more division of food clothes etcetera than he that was weak and not able to do a quarter. The other could This was thought injustice. The men who could produce the most food didn't because they didn't think they should have to feed other families. The man who couldn't produce his much didn't bother because they assumed that they would be taken care of. And Bradford wrote for men's wives to be commanded to do service for other men as dressing their meat washing their clothes, etcetera. They deemed it a kind of slavery. Thankfully, Bradford did what leaders today often have a difficult time doing. He admitted that he was wrong. Two years after deciding to share their harvest, The Plymouth colonists decided to parcel out the land they had settled and keep what they grew for their own families. Whatever was leftover could be bartered with other families. Limits. Government would have nothing to do with this and step in only to settle disputes that arose. They didn't know it then. But they had just created the model for government industry and, well, life that much of the rest of the world would follow for the next 400 years. And the pilgrims prospered, Governor Bradford wrote. This had a very good success or it made all hands very industrious. So is much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been, by any means the governor or any other could use. And saved him a great deal of trouble and gave far better content with women now went willingly into the field and took their little ones with them to set corn, which before would allege weakness and inability. Whom to have compelled would have been thought. Great tyranny and oppression for the next 400 years. That simple idea was able to fight off tyranny and oppression in every form. They took, because that simple idea empowered every man, woman and child to produce whatever they were able Reap the benefits of their hard work and sell it to the rest of the world. No point in world history were common people more powerful because at no point in world history, did they control their own destiny to the extent that they did in Plymouth? New world was fully open to them. That world is our world, and we're still reaping the bounty of the world that they created for us. It hasn't been perfect, of course, but it has given each and every one of us the most valuable of gifts. Opportunity. We have the opportunity to work how we want live where we want and love who we want because of that simple idea of 400 years ago, and for that We are thankful. For family for friends, for all the blessings that God has bestowed upon us. For the freedom to enjoy.

They tried to redesign the homes. And so all the bad vibes go away, and recent episode was focused on a home in Canoga Park. This is the same home. Where in 1988 a child star, Judith Bar, See you look at her picture, and you know her instantly. She was in so much stuff in her short life. Judith Bar, See was brutally murdered by her father.

"Already however several structures had burned, and most of the town's residents had fled for their lives. The initial force being sent to protect Swansea was under the command of William Bradford.

Yes, he is the son of William. Bradford the same William Bradford that we had spent so much time with last season. This of course makes sense because I pointed out earlier today that by this point, the elder Bradford had been dead for the last eighteen years. Is also this battle that Benjamin church is going to enter into our story. Benjamin Church was born in Sixteen thirty nine in Plymouth. Church have become wealthy. Relatively speaking through his work is a land speculator. Eat was also known for having a close relationship with the natives that he met and was by all rights popular amongst the different tribes. Benjamin Church would also form a real knack for INDIANAP- at important battles. This would prove critical for his legacy. Because years after the war, he wrote. One of the most complete accounts of this war is accounts of the war are still largely relied upon today, therefore much of the information we are going to be discussing about this. War is provided to us through churches own writings. Bradford would arrive quickly reaching swansea by June twenty-fourth. However by that point, we know that any hope of a sediment was long gone. When Bradford arrived several Indians like dead. They had been shot and killed by the town's residents, but tribe that had been doing the harassing responded by killing nine of the English colonists over the next several days, small skirmishes continued to break out with the Indians who would strike quickly on the edges of the English lines. The Swansea residents had fled to nearby miles garrison where a guard and several residents were killed in an attack. Attack with the Death Count Mount He. It became very obvious everybody that this wasn't going to be some minor event. That will be put down with some kind of an agreement, but rather was the outbreak of a much more substantial conflict, the shock of the attack swansea.
