"You know we've talked about dirty politics on here before you know favors backscratching smoke filled rooms all that stuff. This is a big one a big example of that and all those guys, AP Morgan Rockefeller they all hated especially Rockefeller, hated Teddy Roosevelt because he led, he led the the. Federal trial against standard oil and a lot of these other big corporations that they were They're like you guys have to break up your monopoly, your you're price-fixing. You're doing this Naso Rockfeller had a mass all this well and Teddy Roosevelt broke up his business. So they hated he hated Teddy. Roosevelt. So they're gonNA get Woodrow Wilson Power. And Wilson agreed to sign this into law. And then sounds like from from a previous quote later in his term. Or that he didn't know really what he was signing. He said quote I. Am I am a most unhappy man. I've unwittingly ruined my country. Industrial Nation is now controlled by its system of credit. We are no longer a government free opinion no longer government by conviction and avoid majority but by the opinion and success of a few people. So it was basically like I fucked up fucked up shouldn't assigned like once you've figured out what it was like we were in big fucking trouble but that was that was the one thing that Wilson. Dead I guess before he got us into World War One in thousand nine sixteen that was his reelection term he ran as a as a pacifist and. was like yet we're not that's Europe's problem we're not going. We're not GONNA KNOCK ON. Ninety gets elected and then it's like we should go. As. Soon, as he gets that second term, he starts China change his tune. There's. Conspiracies at their financial implications from those same people again, because war is big business. So if your standard oil and your Rockefeller WanNa, be selling munitions oil for for planes and tanks, things like that you want the country at war so They. So long story short they sink the Lusitania others is big in a propaganda machine United States goes to war. And you know we we went. We went. You know that that turned the tide of World War, one? and. And Wilson brought us into war. Carl uses the term Manchurian a lot. Now now, Megan uses right. If I say was Woodrow Wilson the Manchurian candidate for the big bank. You could you would be correct in saying that I think. So Manchurian candidates from the movie was like Sinatra movie from the sixties and they remained it with Denzel Washington. But basically that they took it one step further as like, we're going to actually control this guy's mind like with like implants and things like that. This is just like they're bullying. So it's like more realistic but yeah, that's that's the Hey ed. Brushed it that's mentoring gannet. Yeah. So he he was acting on behalf of the the rich and powerful nets that was his whole deal.

What Happens If The President Is Incapacitated? The 25th Amendment Charts A Course
"Greene. The story we are covering this morning was first revealed in a tweet from President Trump in the middle of the night. He and first lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the Corona virus. Many people we should say never developed serious symptoms and even if they do they recover, But Trump is 70 for an age group that is more likely to develop serious complications and to be hospitalized. The White House physician says the president is doing well as of now, but will remain in the White House residents. A White House official told NPR's Tamara Keith that the president plans to stay engaged, but that Vice President Mike Pence is ready to step in. As needed. Now, if and when a president falls ill. There are significant questions about how the nation is governed. And John 48 has studied and written about scenarios just like this. He's executive director. Of the continuity of government Commission, which was set up in the wake of the 9 11 attacks. He also runs the government studies program at the bipartisan Policy Center, and he joins us on Skype. Thanks for being here. Mary. Thanks for having me. So I mean, someone who looks at these questions so closely. How did you react when you heard that the president got a positive test? Well, given all that's happened, it was probably the one thing that might stir up some or turmoil in this, this very tumultuous election system season we've had. Look, there are some real questions. Both about a president as president having on illness, especially if it were to get worse but also in terms of a presidential candidate. Those are those are different issues about being on the balance and what happens afterwards. So I do think there are some significant concerns if If things were to worsen. Well, let's separate those things out. Let let's talk about the here and now. I mean, what sort of things are being discussed right now inside the White House and were the president's health to deteriorate. I mean, you've written that there could be confusion there. Khun B. Chaos. I mean, take us inside that building. Well, first, a zoo president, the question would be is the president at some point does he feel that he doesn't isn't able to carry out the duties of the presidency for a time? And there's a pretty clear provisioning the 25th amendment, where he can sign over the power of the presidency to the vice president. And then when recovered, take it back, and that's happened a few times in recent years, basically, for elective surgeries, That would be pretty clear. I think you know what would be a little harder is if the president got sick enough that he wasn't able to make the determination there's still a A vision in the Constitution where you can have the vice president. A majority of the Cabinet say it's time for the vice president to take over and then in the most contentious situation. We have heard about another context that if the president disagreed with that, that Diagnosis. Congress might have to decide whether to keep the president on orto keep the vice president so it could go further down the line. But that would be the more extreme version. Look, we also have The election. And how would President Be on the ballot or not be on the ballot. If it really came to the the point where the president had to withdraw. There is a very difficult procedure and trying to replace him at this time. You know what? Who makes that decision? I mean, how well determine happened earlier. I think it's pretty clear that party could have just stepped in on the party. The party still has a role of selecting a new person. Ah, And that would be the party committee could elevate Mike Pence to the presidency and pick someone else as vice president, But that's a relatively simple vote. We've actually done that once in the in the seventies with vice presidential candidate Bigger place, Tom Eagleton. But the question now that the ballots are out is much more difficult. Could the president's name be removed from the ballot? I think it would be very difficult, but one further complication is in our election of president. We're really not voting for president. But we're voting for these electors in the Electoral college. They're still there in the ballot, even if you don't see them in your states about there, behind those names, and in theory, those people could be elected and then make a choice of another person come December with some complications that have come up recently, the Supreme Court but basically that there is a possibility that that even if Donald Trump's name is still on the ballot, and he were to have withdrawn Um, that those electors could still end up voting for the Republican ticket. Whatever that is, in December, they could actually decide. I mean, you would have electors around the country making a decision that Shouldn't theory be made by health experts, but they would be actually deciding who would who would be president. Assuming if Donald Trump won the election, even though he had withdrawn then there's there's this question in November of well, who's Who of these electors gonna vote for? They're gonna vote for the Republican ticket. Whatever it is. Then again, there are some complications. But the Supreme Court has allowed some states to really bind those electors. But Basically those those electors, many of them at least have the freedom to choose another person. We assume that would be coordinated by the party. And of course, that would be great questions about the legitimacy for the American public. Usually it's possible. I mean this this obviously so so speculative ahs. You said. I mean, these are extreme circumstances we're talking about, but I wonder. I mean, this is your line of work like I wonder if you get people sometimes saying, like, Oh, why do you dedicate so much time to scenarios That might never happen? But I guess there's an argument that these air really important questions that you want answered. You have to plan for for the worst and most chaotic sin areas. You do, And off with some better plans in place for for a lot of these continuity scenarios. I mean, obviously, questions of national security might matter if if we're not absolutely sure if the president is is Well, we had cases well before the 25th amendment, Woodrow Wilson, who was essentially incapacitated for his last almost a year and a half in the White House, and you know the real is a real question as to who was really running the government, the vice president ahead and stepped in and so you know, there are these questions. We don't want uncertainty in times of trouble. And you're saying that that you're not satisfied with the plans that are that are in place that the government could do a better job planning for scenarios like this. Well in some, I do think there's a very clear transfer power to the vice president. That's the 25th amendment has made that very clear if we get into much more public ated scenarios like they're both sick or the question of how you get somebody on the ballot and how the electors were picked because it happens this close to the election. Look, I think we could have more clarity. John 48 is executive director of the Continuity of Government Commission, a nonpartisan think tanks set up by the conservative leading American Enterprise Institute and the liberal leaning Brookings Institution. Thank you so much for helping us work through some of these Something big questions that you know, we hope don't have to come up. We hope the president remains healthy, but things we have to think about. We really appreciate it. Thank you.
Portland sheriff disputes Trump's claim he supports president
"President trump, you have two minutes wise. Should Americans trust you over your opponent to deal with right crime bill nine, hundred and ninety four where you call them superpredators African. Americans the Super Predators and they've never forgotten that they've never forgotten. Also it's his two minutes. You did that and they call you Super Predator and I'm letting people out of jail. Now that you have treated the African American population community, you have treated the black community about as bed is anybody in this country that's president trump and Joe Biden sparring last night in Cleveland perhaps, the Congress moment of the evening when president trump was an interrupting almost everything Joe Biden said fact checkers have noted trump lied when he accused by calling black-americans superpredators. Actually. First. Lady Hillary Clinton who used that phrase in nineteen ninety four not Joe Biden still with US Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill and Kristen Clark is now joining. She's the president and Executive Director of the National Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights under law, Kristen, let's begin with you start off with your reaction to what they said here we just were discussing president trump refusing to condemn white supremacists when pushed on at several times and on what he is saying here. Was a deeply disturbing moment last night in many respects. That question will you condemn white supremacy was a softball It was would have been very easy for president trump to disavow white supremacy in crystal clear terms. You think about the tragedies that the American nation has lived through in recent time the. Murder of nine peaceful. At the. Baptist. Church. In Charleston South Carolina the murderers of eleven worshippers at the tree of life synagogue in Pittsburgh the murders of over twenty people in El Paso Texas the murder of heather higher in Charlottesville. Virginia these horrendous incidents all fueled by a white supremacist violence. Are Easy for any. reasonable. Minded. American to condemn much less the leader of our country and we know that the FBI director has identified white supremacy as one of the greatest threats that we face in our nation today. So I'm deeply disturbed and. I think about how history will reflect on this moment and Yesterday. Was a dark day for our country. I think about one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifteen when Woodrow Wilson screened birth of a nation inside the White House and over a century later, that is a moment. That stands out. For for any ordinary, American as a white. House that embraced unnecessarily white supremacist rhetoric and and essentially that's what we saw yesterday. We know that the proud boys are rejoicing today we know that they have taken this moment to breathe life into their movement. They are boasting about how last night has helped to. Energize their base and help them to recruit new members, and so this is a moment that poses a real and grave threat to black and Brown people in particular in our country who are often the victims of racial violence. and. Kristen. Clark this repeated emphasis the president throughout the debate last night and obviously in statements previously about the dangers of the left and then t for and he kept referring to Portland at one point claiming completely. Complete lie that the Sheriff of Portland had just that day endorsed him. But then Mike Reese who is the sheriff of the county which Portland is immediately tweeted out I have never supported Donald Trump and never will, and yet she brazenly claims that had the support of the sheriff a Portland,

"From NPR and Wbz I'm Robin Young. Down this is here now as the US struggles to contain the coronavirus. Let's go now to southern California. La County the nation's most populous county had its highest single-day tally of new cases yesterday, bringing its total to more than one hundred thousand Governor Gavin NEWSOM has ordered bars in La, county and six others to close here. He is explaining that decision at a briefing yesterday. Many people were not necessarily being as responsible as they otherwise well as we would like them to be as it relates to social distancing. People weren't wearing their face masks. We need to take further steps, and that's exactly what we did by closing down some of the areas of concern. Several, other counties were advised to follow suit as you may remember. California was the first day to institute stay at home orders and worked aggressively to curb the spread. So what's gone wrong? Let's bring in KPCC, health, reporter, Jackie Forty and Jackie today Anthony Fauci and testimony said there's going to be a lot of hurt if people don't follow guidelines. Is it as simple as saying that? When there was a slight opening, people just abandon protections, and so we're seeing the spread a few weeks later. Well I mean that's definitely part of it. It correlates pretty clearly to the lifting of restrictions by the state which allowed sectors of the economy reopen. Governor newsom initially proposed a much slower approach, but after getting a lot of heat from businesses and faith groups, he decided to reopen much faster, and he also left a lot of the decisions about which businesses could reopen up to individual counties, so we had this really weird kind of work for a few weeks where you know. Hair salons were opened in one county, but they were closed in others, and that messaging really confused people we had you know public officials reopening businesses, but at the same time telling people to stay home. There was also a lot of confusion on the business side. They didn't understand what their responsibilities were. As far as you know, making people wear face masks or letting people into the stored pending on the business, because those were different depending on the county, so with businesses reopening people, especially young people took that as a sign that it was safe to go out, gather with friends or family, and our cases in death rates really started rising two weeks later well, and there's also resistance. We saw the video of the woman in a trader. Joe's screaming at people who are asking her to wear a mask to come into the store to her. It was a political issue. These Democrats who were. Taking her rights. How big a factor is that? Yeah, you're exactly right and that video was an Orange County which is a neighboring county to Los Angeles County. They have a lot more Republicans elected there and they have been pushing back on mask mandate quite a bit. We're now seeing. Cases Rise in Orange County, which is kind of changing the conversation there recently they decided not to push back against the governor's mask. Order, for example, because their cases are increasing dramatically well back to La County, the director of Health Services at the daily number of new cases, there could be up five times the peak of what La County experienced in late March early. April, so it's not just coming back. It's coming back with a vengeance, and it could drastically burden the health care system. So, what's the hospitalization rate? How closer hospitals to reaching capacity, yeah La is California's covid nineteen hotspot it is the most populous county in the state with more than ten million people, but when you control for that the infection rate is very high. Health officials announced yesterday that one in one hundred and forty county residents they estimate are infected and out, and about they're not isolated hospitals in l.. A. Could run out of beds in the next two weeks. An ICU beds sometime next week we were told at a press conference yesterday by county health officials that hospitals are prepared. They're ready to implement their surge plans. And that would include cancelling non-emergency operations and turning other parts of the hospital like the emergency room into copay treatment areas. Well, we spoke with people who think this is a political issue and governor. NEWSOM tweeted. California's to covert is based on science. Then there are people you might accept that, but think that they're just not vulnerable, and that's of course young people. We saw a lot of pictures of them on the beaches at bars. Is there a sense that they may shift their behavior? Well I mean we can look at the data. Most of the growth in cases is in young people in La County. Forty percents of the cases are in people under the age of forty. When businesses began to reopen, people just didn't take it as seriously and we don't have the numbers that we've seen on the eastern seaboard I mean. California's very large state. Most people don't know anyone who has gotten sick or died from it, so they just really didn't take seriously well and here coming up on the fourth of July weekend, beaches closed in La County, but not the rest of the state so. This might be an example of what you were saying. It's patchwork. Yeah, exactly you know. Fireworks displays are canceled in most places as are any gatherings so hopefully people keep that in mind and stay apart for this fourth of July. techy forty forty-eight health reporter for KPCC. Thank you so much. Thanks well the legacy of President, Woodrow Wilson is back in the news. The Democrat was twice elected president and here he is campaigning in nineteen twelve..

"This is the way the Democrats are looking at this election remember last election they look at us as radicals and revolutionaries if you believe in the constitution your radical and revolutionary why because if you believe that your dismissing at the last one hundred years and the last one hundred years have been a hundred years of progress look how great things are now so a hundred years of progress the progressives on both sides the Republicans and the Democrats remember progressive started with Theodore Roosevelt the progressives on both sides dismiss the constitution and the declaration of independence a long time ago a hundred years ago and so we were seen as radicals that want to drag you back before Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt well yes because those are the American principles that have been distorted by the socialist movement in the Progressive Party early on so yeah we want to get rid of those because we don't believe those are progress that makes us a radical and revolutionary we're wanting to stick to our founding documents there radicals in revolutionaries want to do the same thing except it's Mao's little red book or it's you know the communist manifesto they see themselves as re founders just as much as we did except only one of us is truly an American idea the other is this European socialist communist idea that it goes against everything America stands for this is why are radicals one wraps themselves in the flag because we are proud of America the other needs to destroy America remember the marks said at the end America is the target because it will shed who it was it will shed its ugliness and it's capitalism in its freedom and it will gain real freedom.

"Com and you'll get my show every night and I did a show comparing Elizabeth Warren to Woodrow Wilson she is Woodrow Wilson what she wants to do is exactly what Woodrow Wilson wanted to do Woodrow Wilson who laid it all out and they've been trying to do it for a hundred years now think of this Woodrow Wilson was a college professor he was new to politics he was kinda roped into it he becomes president and what does he want to do we want to change the constant constitution he does not want to eat around the corners or the edges he doesn't want to do that he wants fundamental transformation he lied he says put the hood up on the constitution the the declaration of independence is meaningless the constitution needs to be changed and so does our system of economy now his playbook really came from his main adviser who actually lived at the White House when this be weird if our president said Hey Steve Bannon now I want you to live here at the White House with me and Steve moved his stuff in and was living at the White House with a weird that's what that's seeds all in on that by the way they are you know he's happy about that I mean everybody would be up in arms and that who is this guy now living at the White House with the president well that's what Woodrow Wilson did with a guy named colonel house he wasn't a colonel it this is his main title that to everybody called him colonel house and he wrote a book called Phillip drew administrator and it was basically a way to in a novel form explain what Woodrow Wilson wanted to do and in it it talks about changing the constitution and has a whole new proposed constitution in it but listen just to a couple of things and tell me that this isn't Elizabeth Warren and most of the Democrats just the dedication to this book nineteen twelve this book is dedicated to the unhappy many who have lived and died lacking opportunity because in the starting the worldwide social structure was wrongly begun sense eight it's saying that the system that we have was wrong in the first place and it's oppressed people and now all these people are not experiencing any kind of fairness at all that's the dedication to this book that is the could be the dedication to almost all of their campaigns listen a couple of other things the question of taxation was one of the most complex problems with which the administrator had to deal with now what he's what what this story is about is there is a civil war in America if you think progressives don't want a civil war they don't want to divide and conquer read Phillip drew administrator this was the original progressive plan so there's a great civil war that happens in America because people are just you know the system's broken in and they're so much unfairness in inequality and everything else there's a great civil war and one of the heroes of the war is Phillip drew and he gets a metal and everybody loves him and his metal and just like him in his dog gets him in his metal goes to Washington and changes everything so he's talking about taxation here Phil drew he's the administrator he's not a president don't call me a president it's this is exactly what Hitler did so you know why was Hitler why was Hitler called the Fuehrer he was called the Fuhrer the leader in the same way he's called the administrator he's not good enough to be called the president he's not good enough to to take I'm trying to remember von what's his name Hindenburg number he wasn't good enough to take that title so he'll just take chancellor he'll just you know I hi I am I am more humble than that that's what Phil drew is doing here he saying I'm just going to be an administrator I don't need any fancy titles and he surrounds himself with some of this with taxes he gets a board of five to advise with him to carry out his very well defined ideas and plans I have a plan for everything so to fill a true very very well defined ideas but he puts these people together and on the board for taxes is a political economist a banker who's thought to be the ablest man of his profession a farmer who is very successful and a practical man the manufacturer and the congressman those are the people that get together and they know better than everyone else and they put this plan together and the administrator just goes ahead and and and puts it in because as it says Lehner upon is Susie assuming charge of the affairs of the Republic this is Philip drew the administrator this is Elizabeth Warren middle given this title now of being the administrator he had largely retain the judiciary as it was cutting you know as it was constituted at the time but he also made a few changes in the personnel of space for state and federal officials therefore as yet there had been no confusion in the public's business so in other words business went on he kept the Supreme Court any made some changes of the state and local level sure which in the by the way included changing state constitutions pretty much abolishing the states and he said everything seemed about as usual the military exception that there was no legislative bodies currently sitting anymore and that then they have the function of a law making was confined to one individual the administrator himself if you read this and you look at Woodrow Wilson and you look at Elizabeth Warren they're saying the same things and you got to remember this is not a dictator this is not a dictator this is just an administrator as somebody who's going to work with the smartest people around all of the most educated people around and they'll have a plan for everything and just give them the power to implement their plan for everything it is the height of arrogance is what scared the living daylights out of the American people with Woodrow Wilson Woodrow Wilson needed a war to do this but don't worry don't worry if we don't have a war is conventional thinking tells us we do have the war on climate change he is after.

We're going to take you inside a cosmetics factory in Pyongyang. This is NPR news. It's eighty news. I'm Tara Siler a contra Costa county. Superior Court Judge is under investigation over a range of allegations, including the sexual harassment of women in the courtroom. The state panel that disciplines judges is opening a formal review of judge John Leitner on nine counts Leitner through his attorney is denying the charges saying they're part of a political vendetta against him. Any shock is a reporter with the bay area news group, and she wrote about this story today, and any can you give us some specific examples of what the sexual harassment charges are against judge Leitner. There's about nine counts total that are included in this complaint against the judge about half of them include multiple instances of what the complaint says could be perceived as sexual harassment or sexual discrimination. Some of the counts our private conversations, so one public defender alleged that the judge told her in a condo. The station that her parents did not spank her enough on another. He says dot her objections on the record made him feel bad. And now it's different with her quote. So any some of these allegations are pretty shocking. I'm wondering do we know if there are other witnesses to back up any of these charges? There are some instances where it lists multiple people being in the courtroom. There's a couple like the spanking, you know, conversation, for example, that was private, and I think that was just based on one public defenders account, but there are others listed in here. Talk about you know, at least a couple attorneys or other people being in the courtroom. Anne, there are allegations that he also allegedly abused his authority. What what is the complaints say about those charges? There's one instance or a couple of instances that accused him of abusing has a sorority one. For example, he ROY MandA or defendant in custody with without. Exonerating revoking are increasing the bail so complaint. There is that he was increasing the bell in the defendants absence and without a hearing on the appropriate bail amount. Meaning he failed to give the defendant not attorney the full right to be heard. And the judge is denying these allegations. And he's saying that there's a political conspiracy against him by the public defender's office. What does he say is the basis for that claim has attorney says that this is a long running dispute between the public defenders who he also called quote aggressive. He thinks public defenders are trying to kind of smear it a stage and get him removed because of a dispute over the use of cash bail, and the fact that the state panel the commission on judicial performances is opening this formal review process that means they've already conducted a preliminary investigation, right and found the allegations to have some credibility. I believe. So it's not as it says in the announcement by the commission. There's no finding of guilt at all yet. But they have at least initially looked at it. And so now, this is this will be a formal investigation and a formal review and what happens in that process. So a panel will look at it. You know, they'll be hearing a formal hearing the commission itself can then decide whether they will do anything. So they could dismiss the charges. They could publicly admonished the judge or they could remove him if they find that it warrants that. Okay. Thank you so much. Anne. Thank you. Anne shock is reporter with the bay area.
