    THE FIGHTING BUNCH- THE BATTLE TO END VOTING CORRUPTION IN TENNESSEE (AUTHOR INTERVIEW)

    THE FIGHTING BUNCH- THE BATTLE TO END VOTING CORRUPTION IN TENNESSEE (AUTHOR INTERVIEW)

    In August of 1946 the Democrat party was holding most of the state of Tennessee in an iron grip and had been for 10 years. Voters were being shot, beaten, and intimidated. Ballot box stuffing was the rule in many counties. Election integrity was non-existent. The corruption went all the way to Washington DC. The DOJ, the FBI, the Tennessee State Supreme Court- all turned a blind eye to the worst corruption ever witnessed in the south, ignoring desperate pleas for help looking into the problem and saying there was nothing wrong.
    Many people were on the take. Local sheriffs and deputies aligned with the machine were driving expensive cars and in some cases pistol whipping and even shooting voters who objected to their methods at the polls.. It took a group of concerned and angry returning WWII vets to clean things up- and it took a fight against armed deputies who were holding innocent people hostage, along with the ballot boxes they had stuffed, in a county courthouse. When the bullets and finally dynamite rousted them out- the Democrat machine was finally broken and justice returned. to McMinn county.
    Enjoy an interview with Chris de Rose- author of "The Fighting Bunch", and pick up the book for a great read.

    JAN BAALSRUUD'S MISSION IMPOSSIBLE (PT 1): A DEADLY MISTAKE

    JAN BAALSRUUD'S MISSION IMPOSSIBLE (PT 1): A DEADLY MISTAKE

    In late March of 1943 four expat Norwegians, having received commando training in Scotland, cruised into a remote fjord on Norway's northern coast in a fishing boat loaded with explosives and supplies needed to complete their mission, which was to assist locals in the area in resisting the Nazi occupation and to destroy a German-held airfield. The mission quickly went south when a local marine shop owner got nervous and contacted the German authorities. Baalsrud was left on his own to try to escape the German dragnet, using only his wits and the courage of locals who were willing to put their lives on the line for him..

Intriguing and well researched snapshots and stories. However, two corrections are in order regarding the Shoah or Holocaust referenced in several episodes.

First the Nazi campaign of Jewish annihilation and mass torture occurred in five (5) continents not just in Europe.

Second, the number of Jews slaughtered is now estimated to be 16-20 million according to research from 2010 at the National Holocaust Museum including over 42,000 concentration camps. It is now estimated that 3-5 million Jewish children were mass murdered through five (5) continents.

Keep up your good work.

Thank you for your well told hisstories. Your research is impressive. Your story telling style is inviting.

I too want to commend Bob Hoover to you. His energy management routine in a Aero commander was truly a jaw dropping experience. He was an American hero flying in a straw hat and cowboy boots.

Well done sir. Please continue.

Fantastic podcast

I really like the history here. Have you considered doing a show on Bob Hoover? Jimmy Doolittle called him the greates stick and rudder pilot who ever lived. In ww2 he escaped from a German POW camp then stole a German plane and escaped to Holland.
