On this episode of The MeidasTouch Podcast, we cover the latest breaking developments in the world of politics. The Republicans' latest hearing on the ‘Weaponization of the Federal Government' backfired, as their so-called whistleblowers were exposed as paid Trump lackeys. Meanwhile, Republicans continue to push their weird – and cruel – agenda throughout the nation. Yet, voters across the country are rejecting their hate with force, as displayed in a wave of elections this past Tuesday. Jack Smith secures new evidence from the National Archives as Trump continues to box himself into a pathetic defense. Ron DeSantis is expected to announce his run for president, but meanwhile, he can't even beat Disney, who just announced a new major action against him. All this and much more!

Sources tell CNN that Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected to file paperwork with the Federal Election Commission and announce he's entering the 2024 GOP presidential race next week. The Florida governor has been openly feuding with Disney, who has just upped the ante by scrapping plans to build a $1 billion office complex in the state, likely costing the state 2,000 white collar jobs. Former Trump White House Director of Communications Alyssa Farah Griffin tells Anderson Cooper she thinks the Florida Republican was “bound to get outmaneuvered by Disney” and shares how electable she thinks he is with voters. Plus, national security attorney Mark Zaid joins AC360 to discuss the likelihood of Trump being charged after news that the National Archives plans to share records with the special counsel showing the former President and his advisers knew the correct declassification process.To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy
Three FBI whistleblowers testified on May 18 before the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. They exposed details on alleged abuses of power by FBI leadership, and how the Bureau retaliated against whistleblowers. Every administration since President Ronald Reagan has mishandled classified materials, including mixing classified and unclassified documents. That's what National Archives officials told the House Intelligence Committee during a closed-door interview in March. Prosecutors say the Air National Guardsman accused of leaking classified documents on social media was warned multiple times over mishandling classified information. ⭕️Watch in-depth videos based on Truth & Tradition at Epoch TV

Sources tell CNN that the National Archives informed former President Trump that they'll be handing over 16 records to special counsel Jack Smith that show Trump and his top advisers knew the correct declassification process while he was in the White House. Trump and his allies have insisted that while he was President, he didn't have to follow a specific process to declassify documents. Carrie Cordero is a former counsel to the U.S. Assistant Attorney General for National Security. She tells Anderson Cooper what this could mean legally for the former President.

Last week, former president Donald Trump's lawyers sent a letter to House Intel chairman, Rep. Mike Turner (R-Ohio). The letter is remarkable in many ways—yet the media has completely ignored it. Trump's lawyers are trying to get Turner and House Republicans to intervene in the Mar-a-Lago documents investigation, as well as to change the laws regarding how classified documents are handled by the executive branch. Remarkably, that's an indirect admission that Trump's Mar-a-Lago documents were, in fact, mishandled, a fact that is blamed in large part on the National Archives and Records Administration. The letter also describes Joe Biden's own document scandal, and gives us an initial in-depth account of events that led to the FBI's Mar-a-Lago raid on August 8th of last year. So what's the strategy here? Why is Trump's legal team making sudden admissions and trying to get Congress involved? We investigate. ⭕️ Watch in-depth videos based on Truth & Tradition at Epoch TV

In 1963, on the heels of a failed desegregation campaign in Albany, Georgia, Martin Luther King., Jr., and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference decided to take a stand for Civil Rights in “the Most Segregated City in America,” Birmingham, Alabama. In Project Confrontation, the plan was to escalate, and escalate, and escalate. And escalate they did, until even President John F. Kennedy couldn't look away. Joining me now to help us learn more about the Birmingham campaign is journalist Paul Kix, author of You Have to Be Prepared to Die Before You Can Begin to Live: Ten Weeks in Birmingham That Changed America.

Breaking News!! The Vindication of Richard Nixon appears at long last to be upon us. One of the leading academic institutions in America has decided to look in-depth at the documents discovered by Geoff Shepard ( and that we used on our podcast for Seasons 6 -8) as we approach the 50th anniversary of the Watergate Scandal and the fall of President Richard Nixon. In this episode , we have been given permission to replay a new discussion panel featuring former White House Appointments Secretary for President Richard Nixon, Dwight Chapin, former Nixon legal Defense Team Member Geoff Shepard, and one of the leading historians in the World today, Luke Nichter of Chapman University, as they discuss the Hoover History Working Group and its new 12 hours of in-depth seminars delving into the documents discovered by Geoff Shepard in the National Archives. This is the first time a major academic Institution has decided to study these documents this intensely that make the case that their was massive Prosecutorial Misconduct, and misconduct of Judge John Sirica, that led to the resignation of Richard Nixon and the conviction of several of his top aids in 1974. We also review some of the examples of exculpatory materials we featured in our recent series that covered 5 seasons and the entire Nixon Presidency. If you tune in to our shows it will be evident that there was a lot more to the story of Richard Nixon than has been told so far by historians and the national news media. A lot of it is of a great man with a long list of accomplishment.

TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the weeks of April 17 and April 24, 2023. This episode, the sixth in a series on water in U.S. civil rights history, continues our exploration of water connections to the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. MUSIC – ~23 sec – instrumental. That's part of “Mississippi Farewell,” by Dieter van der Westen. It opens an episode on how Mississippi River water and public health were the context for the first U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the meaning and extent of the 14th Amendment. One of three constitutional amendments passed and ratified soon after the Civil War, the 14th Amendment aimed to guarantee citizenship rights and legal protections, especially for newly freed Black people. In 1873, the Supreme Court issued a ruling in three consolidated cases about wastes from livestock processing facilities in Louisiana; this ruling had decades-long implications for key parts of the 14th Amendment and for civil rights. Have a listen to the music for about 25 more seconds, and see if you know the name of these consolidated Supreme Court cases. MUSIC – ~27 sec – instrumental. If you guessed The Slaughterhouse Cases, you're right! As of the 1860s, some 300,000 livestock animals were slaughtered annually at facilities along the Mississippi River in and around New Orleans, upstream of water supply intakes, with much of the untreated waste from the process reaching the river. Concerns over the potential for diseases from this water contamination led the Louisiana legislature to pass the Slaughterhouse Act of 1869. This law authorized a single corporation to operate one slaughterhouse facility on the Mississippi downstream of New Orleans and required all butchers in the area to use that facility. Butchers' organizations filed suit, alleging that the law infringed on their work rights in violation of the 14th Amendment's clauses prohibiting states from abridging the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States and from denying people equal protection of the laws. On April 14, 1873, the Supreme Court issued its ruling, with the majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Miller. Miller's opinion upheld the Louisiana law, finding that that the slaughterhouse monopoly granted by the state was within the police powers to provide for public health and sanitation. Justice Miller went further, however, in asserting that the 14th Amendment gave the federal government jurisdiction only over federal, or national, citizenship rights—that is, privileges and immunities—but not over rights historically considered to result from state citizenship. Miller also asserted that the amendment's equal protection clause applied only to the case of Black people emancipated from slavery. The Slaughterhouse Cases decision, along with other related Supreme Court decisions during the Reconstruction Era, created long-lasting legal barriers to federal government efforts against state-level violations of civil rights, such as racial and gender discrimination, voting restrictions, and failure to prevent or prosecute racially-motivated crimes of violence. Thanks to Dieter van der Westen and Free Music Archive for making this week's music available for public use, and we close with about 20 more seconds of “Mississippi Farewell.” MUSIC – ~22 sec – instrumental.

EXTRA INFORMATION ON THE 14TH AMENDMENT The following information about, and text of, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was taken from National Archives, “Milestone Documents: 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: Civil Rights (1868),” online at https://www.archives.gov/milestone-documents/14th-amendment. “Following the Civil War, Congress submitted to the states three amendments as part of its Reconstruction program to guarantee equal civil and legal rights to Black citizens. A major provision of the 14th Amendment was to grant citizenship to ‘All persons born or naturalized in the United States,' thereby granting citizenship to formerly enslaved people. “Another equally important provision was the statement that ‘nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.' The right to due process of law and equal protection of the law now applied to both the federal and state governments. “On June 16, 1866, the House Joint Resolution proposing the 14th Amendment to the Constitution was submitted to the states. On July 28, 1868, the 14th amendment was declared, in a certificate of the Secretary of State, ratified by the necessary 28 of the 37 States, and became part of the supreme law of the land.” Text of 14th Amendment Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. Section 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members of the legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such state, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such state. Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability. Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void. Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

Extreme Genes - America's Family History and Genealogy Radio Show & Podcast
Host Scott Fisher opens the show with David Allen Lambert, Chief Genealogist of the New England Historic Genealogical Society and AmericanAncestors.org. The guys begin with David's recent amazing discovery while visiting the National Archives. In Family Histoire News, David tells the story of a pre-photographic era artist from Virginia whose silhouettes from 1803 to 1812 have been digitized. Then, a treasure trove of Neanderthal tools and remnants has been discovered. David has details. Next, one of the more bizarre stories you'll hear anytime soon is about a giant meatball that contains DNA from the Wooly Mammoth and other extinct creatures. President Biden is learning about his ancestry in Ireland. And a kitchen renovation in England has revealed some insane 17th century artwork! Next, Fisher visits with Jewish researcher Katheryne Thorne from sponsor Legacy Tree Genealogists. Katheryne will explain why your Russian Jewish ancestry may not be so Russian after all. She also explains the challenges of Eastern European Jewish research. Fisher then talks with author Anne Hansen about her book “Buried Secrets- Looking for Frank and Ida.” These were Anne's grandparents who apparently had no past! Hear about Anne's research process and how she writes in a fascinating genre called “Creative Non-Fiction.” David then returns for another round of Ask Us Anything. That's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
Little Joe's Conservative Corner
For months, the National Archives and Records Administration has insisted it had nothing to do with the federal criminal investigation into memos containing classified markings that were found at former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate since it referred the matter to the FBI in February 2022. Police, fire and other government agencies across Florida must ground millions of dollars in aerial drones because of a new state rule banning the agencies from using devices made by China-based DJI. The FBI hatched a plan this year to cultivate sources inside Catholic churches to investigate religious extremism, House Republicans found. Plus more on today's episode.
While the Legacy/mainstream media is looking at another mass shooter with an allegiance to pronouns, how many heard about the stabbing death of a cab driver at the hands of another violent and unhinged trans person. A man who now thinks he's a woman, was out on no bail after felony threats of violence just a few days earlier. But, it was a stabbing so it's not as politically useful, is it? John Kirby doesn't want the press to report on leaked information from the Pentagon. It's amazing how this Administration truly has no regard for the First Amendment. Here are the top 6 revelations from those leaked documents thus far: Photos to a spring of`fensives with different losses than we've heard; Ukraine has only 5-6 weeks of air defense capabilities left; South Korean doesn't want to give ammo to the US for fear it will end up in Ukraine; Israel was pressured to get in the Ukraine conflict, even if anonymously; Russian hackers supposedly cyber-attacked a Canadian pipeline, but Canadian officials are saying it's not true; and, Mossad agents in Israel may have been working to undermine President Benjamin Netanyahu over his judicial reforms. Outside of those revelations, yet another story just hit from those leaked Pentagon documents revealing Egypt was conspiring to sell 40,000 rockets to Russia and to keep it hidden from the US. Our enemies are slowly turning our allies, both overtly and covertly, against our nation while we worry about the woke agenda and the dismantling of our own nation. Speaking of our own dismantling, new documents suggests the Fed may have instigated the violence during January 6. I know that's shocking to most of you, but it seems the mound of circumstantial evidence continues to build against the FBI and others in our own government. Similarly, according to a post from America First Legal, Gary Stern, the National Archives' General Counsel, confirms in an email obtained by them that “the Justice Department, via the Biden White House, had made the [special access] request,” regarding the documents at President Trump's home, Mar-a-Lago. We already told you that last year, but it's nice to see those facts finally being brought to a more public light. Bud Light is learning, go woke, go broke. They are facing some significant financial losses and backlash to their new VP of Marketing's woke, virtue-signaling goal of spotlighting the transgenderism cult movement. Finally, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre beclowned herself (again) by saying in the history of presidents, Joe Biden is unprecedented in the number of shouted questions he answers from the Press Corps. Even the sympathetic propagandists in the room rolled their eyes and verbally disagreed with that blatantly false assertion.

In the decades following the Civil War, African Americans reliably voted for the Republican Party, which had led the efforts to outlaw slavery and enfranchise Black voters; and white southerners reliably voted for the Democratic Party. When Black voters started to vote for Democratic candidates in larger numbers, starting with the 1936 re-election of FDR, whose New Deal policies had helped poor African Americans, Republicans began to turn their sights toward white Southern voters. By the 1964 Presidential election, Republican Barry Goldwater was actively courting those voters, winning five states in the deep South, despite his otherwise poor showing nationwide. Republican Richard Nixon successfully refined the strategy in his 1968 defeat of Democrat Hubert Humphrey. In the following decades, the Republican Party continued to employ the Southern Strategy, eventually leading to a complete realignment of the parties. Joining me for a deep dive on the Southern Strategy is Dr. Kevin M. Kruse, Professor of History at Princeton University, author of several books on the political and social history of twentieth-century America, and co-editor with fellow Princeton History Dr. Julian E. Zelizer of Myth America: Historians Take on the Biggest Legends and Lies about Our Past.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 3-31-23. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the weeks of April 3 and April 10, 2023. This episode, the fifth in a series on water in U.S. civil rights history, begins an exploration of water connections to the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. MUSIC – ~17 sec – instrumental. That's part of “Maple Leaf Rag,” composed by Scott Joplin and performed by Zachary Brewster-Geisz. Scott Joplin, an African American from Texas who became known as the king of ragtime music, was born in 1868. That year also brought the effective “birth” of the the 14th Amendment, which was ratified in July 1868. Have a listen to the music for about 20 more seconds, and see if you know four areas of rights addressed by the amendment. MUSIC – ~22 sec – instrumental. If you guessed any of these, you're right: citizenship, privileges and immunities, due process, and equal protection. Let's have a listen to the Section 1 of the amendment: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Other sections of the amendment addressed citizens' right to vote, insurrection against the United States, Civil War debts and compensation, and finally—of great importance to future civil rights legislation—Congressional authority to enforce the amendment. The late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, in a 1987 speech, said the following about the 14th Amendment: quote, “While the Union survived the civil war, the Constitution did not. In its place arose a new, more promising basis for justice and equality, the 14th Amendment, ensuring protection of the life, liberty, and property of all persons against deprivations without due process, and guaranteeing equal protection of the laws,” unquote. There may be no more important development in U.S. civil rights history—certainly in its legal history—than passage and ratification of the 14th Amendment. Interestingly from a water perspective, the first U.S. Supreme Court interpretation of the amendment, in 1873, addressed a law focused on water and public health; about 100 years later, water infrastructure was at issue in another significant federal court claim under the amendment; and water infrastructure is the subject of a 2022 complaint filed under the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, for which the amendment is a significant constitutional foundation. This episode's overview sets the stage for upcoming episodes on those three 14th Amendment water stories. Thanks to Zachary Brewster-Geisz for making a recording of “Maple Leaf Rag” available for public use, and we close with about 20 more seconds of that well-known Scott Joplin tune. MUSIC – ~22 sec – instrumental. SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.

EXTRA INFORMATION ON THE 14TH AMENDMENT The following information about, and text of, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was taken from National Archives, “Milestone Documents: 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: Civil Rights (1868),” online at https://www.archives.gov/milestone-documents/14th-amendment. “Following the Civil War, Congress submitted to the states three amendments as part of its Reconstruction program to guarantee equal civil and legal rights to Black citizens. A major provision of the 14th Amendment was to grant citizenship to ‘All persons born or naturalized in the United States,' thereby granting citizenship to formerly enslaved people. “Another equally important provision was the statement that ‘nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.' The right to due process of law and equal protection of the law now applied to both the federal and state governments. “On June 16, 1866, the House Joint Resolution proposing the 14th Amendment to the Constitution was submitted to the states. On July 28, 1868, the 14th amendment was declared, in a certificate of the Secretary of State, ratified by the necessary 28 of the 37 States, and became part of the supreme law of the land.” Text of 14th Amendment Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. Section 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members of the legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such state, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such state. Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability. Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any state shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void. Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

That's all this week on Extreme Genes, America's Family History Show!
On Friday's Mark Levin Show, the law has been destroyed by the Biden administration to go after parents and families and now Donald Trump, just like how Joseph Stalin would do. It's no longer about the elements of the law or the level of proof, but about tyranny and a totalitarian democrat party that wants to win at all costs and shut down speech of its political opponents. If we do not have a just law, we do not have a free country. We have an American Pravda media that supports Democrats and whatever they do, and act as attack dogs to Republicans and anyone who dares to support Trump. Trump prevented a third Obama term and saved America from the destruction we see today as a result of the Biden Administration, and totalitarian Democrats and their media tried to cripple him every step of the way. They did not accept a Trump victory in 2016 and will not accept a Trump victory if it happens in 2024. Also, the National Archives has admitted that 1,170 pages from Biden's time as Vice President were found at the Penn-Biden Center in 2022 and has no custody of records of the documents at his home in Delaware. We have Jack Smith interrogating everyone at Mar-a-Lago, but nobody is looking into Biden who actually broke the law and the National Archives confirmed it. Learn more about your ad choices.
