The Similarities Between Terry McAuliffe and Horace Mann

"I don't know about you, but I like talking to John's mirror. And I was talking to him was a yesterday about John Dewey, Horace Mann, about education about what mcauliffe said before he went down in flames and John, I thought, let's keep talking about that because we had ten minutes here. And I said, this is actually so important. And that's why when he said what he said that parents shouldn't have the right to interfere in what the teachers teach I just thought that is one of the wildest statements I've ever heard. The idea that an adult running for office could say such a thing or even things such a thing, again, call me naive, but I was absolutely astonished. Well, it was a great moment of candor. Terry mcauliffe said in a debate, parents should not be telling teachers what to teach in schools. We have experts for that. That was very candid. And as I said last time, Horace Mann, the founder of mass compulsory public education in America, Horace Mann, school for teachers is associated with Columbia University. I remember seeing it when it would get off to Trevor bridge. He was a Unitarian. He kept that kind of quiet. He was a social gospel reformer, and he thought it was the job of public schools to save children from their parents. You had all these fundamentalist Christians who believed in the Bible. You had all these Catholic immigrants getting off the boat like my ancestors. And they had all these reactionary views. They were not on board with modern science with progressive ideas with eugenics with all the things that the progressive movement had in mind. A massive federal government managing the country from the top down as experts basically peeling away the old constitution. Woodrow Wilson, before he ran for president, wrote a book about how the constitution was this archaic obsolete rickety 18th century mechanism we needed clear it out of the way so that we could run the government according to the dictates of modern science. And by modern science, they meant Charles

Charlie Kirk and Professor Ben Burgis Debate Medicare For All

"So you want Medicare for All. Yeah. Yet HHS is the largest civilian branch of our government. So as we have expanded Medicare as we've expanded Medicaid, it hasn't been means tested as you want. We have hundreds of thousands of desk workers that are doing the means testing. Are you qualified Medicare reimbursements? And so under your example idealistic the point is that Medicaid is a test can not have a generous social program without a massive bureaucratic and dare I say corrupt administrative state. Well, I think Woodrow Wilson would even say that. Well, you need the industry. You think I like Woodrow Wilson? The guy who probably got college professors. Well, okay. And a college president. So he's kind of in your truck world. Okay, trust me, neither of those things weren't any points for me. But I think that. That's fair. But I did Woodrow Wilson as the guy who resegregated the federal law at the federal bureaucracy after trust me. Integrated speech. Dabs in jail, nobody on the left is going to say Woodrow Wilson is a hero. Liberals. Nobody on the left. But I was just going to say I know plenty of people that would, but that's fine. I don't think you're going to find a lot of LBJ. All these people believed in a strong administration. Well, maybe you're rattled off a bunch of liberals, but that's okay. We don't need to argue about historical figures. Let's just say this. If you're talking about administrative state, bureaucracy. Well, your example is Medicaid, which is a means tested program. And even at that, even despite the means testing, which is the part that gives the bureaucrats their power, which is also the part of objected to, even despite that, we're talking about bureaucracies as I think you mentioned earlier, bureaucracy, the government has no monopoly of bureaucracy as plenty of bureaucracies in the private sector. And if you want to know which programs have the smallest overhead, right? Even Medicaid, even despite the needs tested, Medicaid, Medicare, all of those have much smaller administrative overhead that any of the private insurance companies because the private insurance companies one, they have to plan out their strategy for competing with each other. And two, the private insurance companies have a vast bureaucracy that is dedicated to finding ways to deny people's claims because they've always got one eye on the bottom line for

"So you know when we go back to the episode that we did on the pentagon papers you ellsberg you know. He gave the the information that he had that he photocopied by hand to the washington. Post and the new york times and they both printed it and when we were talking the last episode about You know the afghan diaries or the iraq war diary in those Though those leaks were provided to the new york times As well as dr spiegel and a few other publications as well In advance to vet them and then ultimately publish them. So if you can go after wikileaks for leaking things then you can go after pretty much. Anyone who does this and the danger here is that we would never be able to know all of these dirty little secrets. That the government's trying to lock up against us in all the ways that they lie us into senseless wars that ultimately claim people's lives primarily ours but ours but so the millions of foreign lives that we take in pursuit of wars that are unjustified and largely legitimate. That's the precedent that it sets so thanks trump for not going after wiki leaks yet but but also You know fuck you for not giving. Julian assange pardon. Which i think that was. That's right appropriate. I'm don't get your faith in any. Us president to do the right thing. When it comes to this you can just hope. They don't take a mile and only take a couple of inches at this point Rape but back to wilson another big part of this This assault or this This weird kind of tyrannical north korea. Type state this ten year period in america where we were. North korea was the propaganda campaigns. That were coming out. And so the wilson administration. They established a department called the committee on public information. Which was i mean. It is what it sounds like. It was just a giant propaganda department. And if you ever look at these old world war one propaganda pamphlets. They're really they're really something they're very interesting. I've always been interested in these because my grandparents used to have them. They have they used to have a bunch of these old bradley one yet. I mean i mean both neither. My grandparents were obviously alive during world. War one. I mean that would be actually my grandfather and my dad's side was born in nineteen ten. He and my dad very late four years old so he would have been four years old so he wasn't really collecting the post war memorabilia base. Yeah thank you.

"It basically doomed the fledgling democratic weimer republic in germany which was a pre progressive. Stayton while maybe it could have been great but we'll never know But basically in this time you know if they hadn't destroyed the german economy you could probably make the argument that that hitler wouldn't have been able to seize power because you know hitler's entire propaganda program was based on the idea of getting back at the folks that you know. Put together site treaty. And you know nationalist chip restoring dignity to germany and stuff like that because they were legitimately humiliated after the after world war one But the you can probably make an argument that world war two. You might not have happened in under the circumstances that broadmoor to happened. Maybe it's still happen in a different way. I think. I think it's almost conclusive that world war. Two wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for the treaty of her. Cy the treaty verse. I was the direct lead up to world war two like world. War two was the consequence of these war reparations on germany and annexing territory and german hyperinflation and d- digitalization of the German and german political leadership after world war one because they were seen us do militarization to they were unable to likely have a stain. Everything that that treaty of her side did lead directly. Led to to the rise of hitler Also you know not only that. The treaty oversight was the reason why he didn't get accepted into art school. I'm sure that's probably one of those consequences. The treaty of her. Cy also led to all of the future middle eastern conflicts. It is it was one of the you know. Probably the worst Treaty of the twentieth century. That led that is probably does that has done the most harm in the world But let's pull this back to america. And i guess the the major points we wanna we wanna hit today of thula. The consequence for americans You know civilians due to this war So something we spoke about earlier. We made some jokes about anton and prow- boys After the us declared war against germany in april of nineteen seventeen a bunch of hardcore vigilante organization started springing up.

"Because i do want to actually talk about that cam. But your here's a i have a quote from murray rothbart and some of you guys who listened to listen to the. Oh gals are Kinda weirdo libertarians. Like myself I kinda keep it a little private but sometimes it does come out. But i have a a quote that i felt was pretty strong from him. The period of the first world war was a watershed and the evolution of the corporate liberal welfare warfare state. It's all beginning. Not only of the government business alliance and industry and american militarism in globalism but also of the ideology and apparatus of the national security state in the years in crisis a their threats civil liberties would be systemized as as the latest depredations by the cia fbi and other federal agencies. Show these have far from disappear. Which i think is very fair Not only prediction but analysis of that administration and how it impacts the world. Today i think he wrote this in one thousand nine hundred eighty s now Going back to like world war one. No basically all wars are by deception in some way there's always a campaign to sell wars Despite the bush administration license. War in iraq Just like about how. Every president lied us into war in vietnam going back. The harry truman. But i guess most notably you know the most agreed just lies re probably told by President johnson and robert mcnamara. But you know. The modern memory of the us rushing into the war just before the british and the french were about the fold to quote unquote save. Democracy doesn't really reflect reality nor even does it reflect public opinion at the time or at least public opinion after the war in the nineteen twenties and nineteen thirty s. A lot of americans believe that entering this war had been a huge mistake. I just think about the damage that took place a hundred fifteen thousand soldiers. American soldiers died hundreds of thousands more were wounded and that was only two hundred days of combat nuts. These guys were getting just slaughtered because a lot of the soldiers going into the war for green. A lot of the american soldiers were going to. They're fighting these grizzled combat fats. Who had been fighting.

"Wilson they an right. What's that. Wilson woodrow wilson. He thousands of journalists in jail. He banned the playing a beethoven because he was german aka hon. I've a funny story actually about beethoven. Did you know that he was black. I mean wilson would probably stop band but it's an interesting story so in one thousand nine seven this british composer Samuel kulab college. Taylor came up with wild theory that Beethoven was black Said that this guy was like mixed race he was. He was a whiting head. A white english mother And his father was from sierra leone And the reason why he started saying that beethoven was black was because he couldn't help but notice from all of the drawings of beethoven that there was like a a lot of likenesses between his facial features and the images of beethoven that he was seeing. Now keep in mind all the images of beethoven. The king were like drawings and secondly talk about a weird way to say you must be black because your pitch drawings look like me in some way and anyway He ended up going to the The south in the us and He said if the greatest of all musicians were alive today he would find it impossible to obtain hotel accommodation in certain american cities as what he said about About the south. Because beethoven was black according to him and and beethoven was black. Became kind of a slogan for civil rights in the us which is interesting for this particular conversation that we're having about Civil liberties and even malcolm x. Jumped on this train. So he told an interview like in an interview till one of the interviews that beethoven's father had been quote one of the black amores that hired themselves out in europe as professional soldiers. Apparently there was a lot of spanish. Moore's that were sell swords at the time and this was the going theory that he was black to be clear he wasn't black. Beethoven wasn't black. He was definitely white But i choose to believe that he was black. Just because it's more interesting that way. All right what else..

"I think we can agree. They definitely goes up. It goes. it's not a slope it didn't in. There's not one gradual slope. Starting from seventeen seventy six continues that continued just to go down with every passing Or up there had enter. There have been times in our country that have been extremely oppressive. And then things get better but then things get worse but then better than worse so I think putting more history in a context. You'll you can see that. There's been some pretty awful infringements on civil liberties Even before today even before the modern national security state That was net. Came to be after after nine eleven. And i think that's type of kind of a white pill in a way Because you know since nine eleven we've been on this big downturn in terms of civil liberties But i think maybe it can go back up. Maybe that can be they can increase. I mean again i. I still think that you're spending with a pretty broad brush here. We the specifically say in which civil liberties have we. Are we going down on. Of course yet. you're right. I m painting with a very broad brush and now and i'm trying to paint with a very broad brush because obviously it's more complex there's different liberties and there's different things and there's different freedoms that are kind of given and taken away throughout society. But what. I want to focus on today to kind of put this into a greater. Context is woodrow wilson. The president woodrow wilson and the federal government and basically what society was like during the war period during world. War one and Just to kind of lead us up The federal the federal reserve world war one league of nations the espionage act the income tax. That is the legacy of woodrow wilson. I call him. The mad president like Like the mad king and gambia loans. The the mad. President woodrow wilson. And here's a guy that in his nineteen sixteen reelection campaign. He can't paint on keeping america out of the war but only a month. After his second inauguration he was already asking congress for a declaration of war on germany. None of like which is not new. A lot of presidents and a lot of a lot of presidents will campaign on more humble foreign policies and Just like george. Bush and barack obama. I mean if you look at george bush and if you hear some of the speeches before he became president but this we're talk bush. Junior he disavowed nation-building these nation building projects and he became. He knows the probably the greatest nation builder. I don't wanna say the greatest as in good or positive but he like Anything new certainly committed to The building of these nations more than probably any other president in our history probably And obama-era happy birthday to him. He was all about pulling out of the wars while have the surge and then you have it. Yeah no he. Basically barack obama basically just continue george bush's policies. Just offline on that fire But america's entry into world war wanted basically. It created a system of repression of dissent on on the civil liberties that i think is unprecedented and at least our history. I think the only thing you really couldn't compare it with was win. Abraham lincoln suspended habeas corpus during the civil war. So just put this in a little. Bit of more context It give you some examples. He put thousands of journalists in.

So i try to talk to the latter part of the nineteen hundreds and really dennis to the really big changes that happened in in american higher education that time and that's the progressive movement a lot of the ideas that we get in really changing country twentieth and twenty first century.

You know, like the like the sauce anyway, His name was Bearnaise. He wrote a book called Propaganda. But before that, he spoke about it. He wrote about it and Propaganda wasn't a bad word back then. And so what? And so Wilson decided to use him and Some of the surrogates. Propaganda. For what he wanted to do in World War one, the League of Nations race and the rest of it because Wilson One of the founding fathers of the so called Progressive movement was a racist in the sensation ist who Resegregated, the military And he supported the Klan.

I can't believe any American president would say that other than possibly Woodrow Wilson, and I think there's a lot of comparison. He said.

But he needs to not let the the The Democrats, the media and the Democrats say old white supremacy that's owned by by Republicans know it's Democrats go over the Democrats history. Go over Biden's history drawing or like Among other things, praising the Kucha ex Cuca's clan member. Or maybe he never left later. Hey, died. Robert Byrd. Buddy certainly did that. The Democrats senator from West Virginia, founded the KKK and in West Virginia didn't just before the Democrats senator who was a colleague. Have learned most of this from you knew some of it, but I learned a lot of it from you. And one thing I don't think you mentioned is Is Woodrow Wilson. Or maybe you have it would sure talk about bringing back the KKK well and showing birth of a nation of perfect movie KK and the White House first movie ever shown in the wife dating the military. Yeah, I mean, I don't know why any black people vote for Democrats. I'm obviously they don't know that. That's why people don't know it either. Most people don't know it, but I just wish I wish Trump would come back with this. Come back here with him. I got It's a play organized, impaired. I condemn white supremacists. Right? Yeah. Another thing I want to say room Go on. Go ahead. Go ahead, 10 to 2. Other things I want to say real quick. Have nothing Do with this one is what you see. I didn't listen to the Oh, listen to the last hour on podcast yesterday. The Lynda Stevie Nicks, saying there would be no Fleetwood Mac. They're simply had never before she and Lindsey Buckingham joined Fleetwood Mac. Secondly, I really appreciate Your occasional obscure references. I get about 80% of them. And I bet you will get this one. Julie Andrews would really appreciate your choice of call Screeners. Victor. We switch from Victoria to Victor. That's right. Victoria was eating our calls and now victory screening our calls and James Garner. Uh, movie with Julie Andrews. Really address and Victor Victoria. Of course. Been part of it Shocked if you didn't get that? Yes. Sure. Oh, yeah. We noticed that at the time. We certainly did. Absolutely. Yes, Victoria Blake is no longer whether she's moved on in life. And now Victor is here and Yes, that has not been lost on us. The victory victory makes it easier for us and the auto fill on the emails much easier. Also. Can't thank you for the cult lots covered lots of stuff there, and I did talk about Stevie Nicks. Yesterday, saying that if it weren't for an abortion she had there would be no Fleetwood Mac and I did mention that if her mother had had an abortion, I guess there would be no Fleetwood Mac either. And the irony of her opening the song Landslide with this is for you, Daddy on now bragging about her abortion, giving her her career. Maybe her parents could have had some more free time, too, if they just hadn't cranked her out, But that zoo another story for another day. Yesterday to be specific. Whether it is we got a lot of stuff. We got a lot of FBI stuff and Hunter Biden stuff and President Trump on Honestly, this FBI's story on the hunter Biden this is This is a gigantic huge scandal once again, and our media is so spectacularly fantastically corrupt. They're so completely and utterly in the tank. Could they make the Iranian media look honest and up front like a gang of truth tellers? The North Korean media has nothing on the American media, and that means you, you know Jake Tapper and Wolf Blitzer and Chunk Todd and the entire staff of The Washington Post and Philip Rucker and Robert Costa, your might as well be in North Korea. You're not in the journalism line of work. I can tell you that much. You're frauds and charlatans. And with that said, Let's take a Let's take another call. Actually. We do have many things to get to in the way of audio and so on. But let's go to President Trump on the campaign trail yesterday, two stops in Arizona, and he ripped it up in both at both events. Um, you know, I'm concerned for the future like everybody else, and today is Tuesday. That means it's two weeks from today is what we used to call Election Day. The Democrats have kind of blown that up like they blew up Portland and Seattle in Manhattan and Chicago and downtown Washington and so many other places. Blown up Election day. But today it's two weeks from today is Election Day, and today is Tuesday, Thursday Day after tomorrow is the big presidential debate, the last and final presidential debate. That's what Kent was talking about, and And I would like to see the president. He was asked yesterday in a very hostile exchange with reporters as usual. What are you doing to prepare for the debate? He said. I do this any kind of smiled, which might indicate that he's not doing any preparation at all. And that would be ill advised. If that's the case. This is a very important event in the president's life, and I hope that and in the life of the country for that matter, because it's kind of imperative that he win this election otherwise Lots and lots of unpleasant things will be happening to our Constitution and the bill of rights and the Supreme Court and and possibly beyond with the filibuster in the Senate, and you gotta look at the Electoral college, which they have contempt for. They're looking to dismantle the nation. The electoral college is the glue that holds the country together. And without it you can forget about the United States America within, you know, 10 years. Give it 10 years, Max. Let's go to and the Democrats. They have got it in for us here because they really hate Trump and everything is driven by hate with these people. You know my best girl and I Didn't talk about this yesterday. But on Saturday, we went down to the Supreme Court and to the mall, Capitol Hill. They had what they call the women's march and they had their pink You know, hats and and on their crazy people, and they were singing gospel soon tunes on the mall while praising abortion.

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,

"People say we can blame Woodrow Wilson for it. They decided during World War One. They wanted to do this and congress stopped it and Wilson Wilson vetoed. The bills not a good thing. No one thinks it's a good idea, especially the poor human Guinea, pigs us that have to go through it. So yeah, your phone. That's that's kind of the definition of a smartphone. If it knows what time it is. So that's why you're feature phone does not. So there may be you're getting a signal from the carrier, but the signal from the carrier. In fact, this is I think the case also with internet time. Assumes that the device knows your time zone and your daylight saving time status and the phone. So the phone has to be told you remember the old days you telephone? Oh, yeah. I'm in this time zone. And this is when daylight saving time begins there'd be a check Mark next to it some older devices like video cameras things like that. You do the same things because they can't know otherwise. And because the signal they get from the carrier signal from the internet is usually based on universal coordinated time. We call Greenwich. Meantime. So anyway, it's we shouldn't be even we shouldn't even have to think about this. Should we? Shouldn't even come up. Ben Franklin wanted to. Wanted to. Cannons to ring out waking everybody at sunrise. But I think might be setire. He's the guy said earlier the better to rise and all that right? He published a letter saying that. Church. Bells and cannons should be fired at sunrise to wake people up. He did not propose daylight saving time. He actually something far worse. A great national alarm clock. So yeah, you're if you have a smartphone, and it didn't said it's now Apple's had distorted lots of problems with time changes last year. The apple watch crashed. Fortunately, we knew ahead of time because stralia changes time zones time, whatever to summertime earlier than anybody else. And so a stray liens or saying. What? My phone died. What's going on? And everybody said, oh, you know. It's it's and then even I phones I had problems different time changes. It's it's complicated. Now, some people are saying that their smartphone doesn't change until it gets a call. That's interesting that might be the network does it signal. I don't know how you know. I wish I knew how all this stuff work. I don't. Let's take a break. Tech in San Diego. I don't know. It's not my survey to share. Look SAM's here. Sands in Hawaii. That's traverse city.

It's actually two bays. There's a an isthmus as Muth that goes up between the two. So there's this is East Grand Trevor he's grand traverse bay and unders west grand traverse bay.

"I mean, you can't really think of a US president in the twentieth century before Carter that was so rooted in the south. Yeah. Not a lot of times when the south has been super cool. No, Woodrow Wilson, certainly wasn't from the south so Carter it was the south will rise again era. We also had Leonard Skinner and all that southern rock happening at the same time. So you're saying the fifty five miles speed limit elected Jimmy Carter. I mean, I think the ascendancy of the south in the late seventies and early eighties was all tied up in this. The funny thing is it's all Burt Reynolds assault after he gave us the great movie about how you should never go to the south deliverance. That's right. He brought it back Banja when he must've felt very bad. A lot of others were like Burt that does that reflect our values Berg home. Berg get it back on the right track. We wouldn't do that to Ned Beatty. He's around feller. Even Mel Blunk was a very active CB users. Can you imagine driving a truck in California? It's good. He would show up doing Porky pig or Bugs Bunny like in character. But Heeb he's writing with hogs reading with the stuttering hog funny. How they all have kind of childlike names. They're all like rubber duck. And snowman it all seems very cute. They're all named after a rainbow Bright's or something. Well, it was a fun time. But there was another energy crisis in nineteen seventy nine and another trucker strike is because they lowered the speed limit to like thirty. No, it was still fifty five, but the energy crisis continued, and then this was an era of tremendous inflation so up until this point the Teamsters union was the biggest in the country and. A truck driver could make a very comfortable living average truck driver in nineteen eighty was making what would adjusted for inflation be about one hundred and ten thousand dollars a year. But in nineteen seventy nine a tragedy befell the trucking industry, which is the deregulation of the trucking industry. This was an era in American politics where this is Reagan area, not quite, but but congress was trending that way. The idea being post Nixon that regulation was strangling the American economy, and we needed to deregulate all the industries that we'd formerly had all these oppressive controls over and trucking was a big one and in the aftermath of deregulation. There were a lot more owner. Operators have became a thing where union membership wasn't necessary to be a viable trucker. And. Initially that seemed like it was just writing keeping with trucker culture. Now, owner operator could be his own man is own wild west character, but very quickly. It was your typical deregulation race to the bottom. Now truckers were in a price war with one another it became simply a matter of how little you could charge rather than is that true to this day are trucking mostly still deregulated into unions trucking is deregulated into unionized. There are I mean, there was a precipitous drop in Teamster membership a lot of trucking companies started to contract with truckers. So that they didn't have to pay benefits. They didn't have to pay standardize rates, which means that every time the price of gas goes up, those increased expenses are born entirely by truckers. There's still regulation on truck drivers. In fact, not very long ago. There were restrictions put on. How long driver could drive in any twenty four hour period kind of like airline pilots? So now, you have to keep a record of how long you drove and how long you slept. How long you took off? So truckers can't load up on speed and drive eighteen hours anymore. So over the course of the subsequent years truck driving has become unoccupied where truckers struggled to make a living. Your average truck driver now makes forty thousand dollars a year and probably works. Very long works. A lot harder and has to really scramble in order to put together a living and during the eighties after the deregulation happened. Truckers lost a lot of their romantic appeal and started to be portrayed in the culture as serial killers and creeps it no longer felt like the they were the heroes of the great Amorin highway kings of the road..
