The battle over Osage headrights
Richard J. Lonsinger is a member of the Ponca tribe of Oklahoma, who was adopted at a young age into a white family of three. He eventually reconnected with his birth family, but when his birth mother passed away in 2010, he wasn't included in the distribution of her estate. Feeling both hurt and excluded, he asked a judge to re-open her estate, to give him a part of one particular asset: an Osage headright. An Osage headright is a share of profits from resources like oil, gas, and coal that have been extracted from the Osage Nation's land. These payments can be sizeable - thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars a year. Historically, they were even larger – in the 1920s the Osage were some of the wealthiest people in the world. But that wealth also made them a target and subject to paternalistic and predatory laws. Over the previous century, hundreds of millions of dollars in oil money have been taken from the Osage people. On today's show: the story of how Richard Lonsinger gradually came to learn this history, and how he made his peace with his part of a complicated inheritance. This episode was produced by Willa Rubin with help from Alyssa Jeong Perry and Emma Peaslee. It was engineered by Brian Jarboe and fact-checked by Sierra Juarez.

Trump’s Legal Jeopardy and America’s Political Crossroads
Donald Trump’s legal troubles are mounting. A Manhattan grand jury investigation into the hush-money payment to Stormy Daniels could soon make Trump the first former American president ever to be criminally indicted. But the Manhattan case isn’t the only source of legal risk for Trump. In Georgia, the Fulton County district attorney is considering criminal charges for Trump’s efforts to influence the 2020 election, and the Department of Justice is investigating his role in the Jan. 6 riots and the removal of classified documents from the White House. This level of legal vulnerability surrounding a former president is unprecedented. It’s also unsurprising — Trump routinely flouts protocols and norms. But even more than his disregard for convention, Trump has a knack for forcing our legal and political systems into predicaments that don’t really have good solutions. How should a political system handle criminal charges against a current political candidate? Is it appropriate for prosecutors to consider the risk of mob violence in weighing charges? And what’s the risk of damage to our institutions of holding Trump accountable — and for failing to do so? _[You can listen to this episode of “The Ezra Klein Show” on __Apple__, __Spotify__, __Amazon Music__, __Google__ or __wherever you get your podcasts__.]_ David French, my colleague at The New York Times, is a lawyer and conservative commentator who has been trying to parse the legal merits of the Trump inquiries and the thorny political questions they raise. In this episode, we explore the investigations into Trump’s misconduct and the interconnected risks that he, his supporters and the Republican Party pose to our political system. We discuss the details of the Stormy Daniels case and why it may not be a slam dunk; the inquiry into Trump’s efforts to overturn election results in Georgia; the appropriateness of weighing the “national interest” when prosecuting a political figure; whether Gerald Ford’s 1974 pardon of Richard Nixon created a precedent that presidents are above the law; why French worries about giving a mob “veto power” over the rule of law; the Department of Justice’s Jan. 6 investigation and why the legal definition of incitement might be hard to clear; French’s belief that moral courage among Republican elites could stopped Trump’s rise to power; why he thinks the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit against Fox News was a “tremendous public service”; whether Fox News is really showing “respect” for its viewers, and more.

Ep. 1139 - Trans Shooter Massacres Christian Children. Media Says Trans People Are The Real Victims.
Click here to join the member exclusive portion of my show:  Today on the Matt Walsh Show, the media has identified the real victims of the massacre of Christian children by a trans shooter. The real victims, of course, are trans people. Meanwhile, Nashville Police are refusing to release the shooter's manifesto. Could there possibly be any valid reason to withhold the full truth about this crime from the public? No, absolutely not. Also, the press secretary for the governor of Arizona responded to the shooting with a tweet threatening to kill more "transphobes." So far, nobody has apologized or been fired for this. And Josh Hawley calls for a hate crime investigation into the shooting. Even if we think that the hate crimes shouldn't exist as a legal category, can we still demand that this be categorized as one? I think we can. - - -  DailyWire+: Become a DailyWire+ member to gain access to movies, shows, documentaries, and more:  Pre-order your Jeremy's Chocolate here: Shop all Jeremy’s Razors products here:  Represent the Sweet Baby Gang by shopping my merch here:   - - -  Today’s Sponsors: Genucel - Save 70% off the Most Popular Package, + FREE SHIPPING!
