GSA designates Joe Biden "apparent winner," enabling official transition
"And so more than two weeks after the major networks declared Joe Biden, the winner of the presidential election, Emily Murphy finally did what she should have done back on November 7th when Biden's victory became apparent. Now. Emily Murphy is a heretofore unknown federal government employee who is the head of the General Services Administration. It is her job to sign off on Biden's win, which allows the presidential transition to officially begin. It permits current Trump Administration agency officials to coordinate with the incoming Biden team and provides millions of dollars in government funding for the transition. If you've listened to the Ron Owens report in recent weeks, you know I was not in Emily Murphy side when it came there doing her one big job. It doesn't seem that difficult aspect. She said she needed only to ascertain that Biden is the apparent winner of the election. And yet somehow she delayed it up until yesterday, forcing hundreds of people joining the new Biden administration to work without government paid assistance. Hmm. That sounds very trump here. I mean, seriously. Despite Biden's clear victory, she stalled in her letter, finally initiating the formal transition process. Murphy said she had not been pressured by the White House to delay the transition and did not make a decision out of fear or favoritism. She wrote, And I quote, please. No, I came to my decision independently based on the law and available fax. Yeah, of course she did. She's neutrals sort of. I mean, she was appointed by President Trump and unsuccessfully tried to be on his transition team in 2016. And every day she delayed making the obvious choice made it more difficult for Joe Biden to put his people in place and work towards a smooth transition to the new administration. In effect, she allowed the delay to possibly be used by enemies of the United States like Russia, who thrive on making countries chaotic. Bottom line. I don't believe her, but at least now her 15 minutes are up. As for Trump Well, he tweeted now that he's not conceding and plans to move full speed ahead with his various legal cases challenging what he calls the most corrupt election in American political history. So we continue to witness the torture. It's vindictive, classless strategy of the president, making his successor's job more difficult from day one. It's almost criminal. Will Rogers sure never met Donald Trump. I admit I'm still enjoying the pain look of Trump. It makes you wonder. Could he actually believe that he won, Huh? Come on, man. No, but the way he's not carrying himself might make future government officials and everyday bosses think twice before surrounding themselves with sick of fence. Is there any doubt that in speaking with foreign leaders who called him out of obligation, he did all he could to poison the water for Biden, his scorched earth way of handling defeat. Go down in history as the classic example of hubris and Pettiness. I'll be watching with great interest how true Republican senators in Congress members deal with him. Now they no longer will have the power to directly make their lives miserable. A few weeks ago, I was pretty convinced that Trump would keep the GOP in this corner for the next four years by offering daily critiques of anything Biden does. I hope the media would wake up and see how they've been consistently manipulated by Trump and punish him by not reporting every word he speaks. Now, though, you know last week or so I'm watching some of the Republican senators who repeated his Bs open up a bit. And veteran Watergate reporter called. Bernstein has now released a list of 21 Republican senators who in private, have repeatedly expressed extreme contempt for Trump and his fitness for office. Maybe by 2024. His own party might reject his bed for a rematch. Meanwhile, is the first round of Biden administration nominations a release. It's clear that by this choosing people who are indisputably X Spurs in their fields over bigger names and democratic politics. There'll be very little on the job training needed for senior members of Biden's White House, as CNN reported. The simple act of hiring people qualify for their jobs is in itself a rejection of the Trump model, which installed donors, right wing ideologues and inexperienced allies into positions of power in some instances, The express purpose of undermining the institutions they were meant to lead, so we'll find ourselves with a very competent yet a times boring new president and a faceless cabinet. After all we've been through these last four years. Doesn't that sound
Fresh update on "united states" discussed on Buck Sexton
"The president of the United States what he has done in the four years that he has served. This president is simply unconscionable. I think criminal in some cases is placed this country in danger. And the president of the United States is supposed to be about making sure that the country is safe and secure. And he has done everything possible. To undermine our democracy, and I don't think that could be overlooked and I don't know what I would do. And I know that biting wants to move on. He does not want to be bogged down in investigations. But I think that the president of the United States should be investigated and we should send a message across the world that we will not tolerate the undermining of our democracy in the way that this president has done. This is Congresswoman Maxine Waters, vocalizing the thoughts that many many Democrats share, which is that they It would not even be enough for Trump to leave. It's not even enough. If Trump loses, he's done. He's finished. They want retribution. They want to get him. And there's so many levels. You can look at this on where it's clearly insane. It's clearly crazy. There's so many, but I would just say this first and foremost, they've investigated him for four years. They thrown so much at Trump to investigate a David. They had the Russia collusion probe in that had impeachment and more witnesses in the congress running that, and they had They've had the Southern District of New York and they've had the district attorney in Manhattan and they know they've got all these investigators. They're investigating the Trump Trump campaign for Russia. Collusion. They're investigating the Trump Foundation for like tax Brother, Ma. I mean, All they've done is investigate this guy for four years with everything. They've got every tool, their disposal. They leaked his tax returns because they couldn't get them through other processes. Right. So all they've done is harassed This guy with Whatever B s investigations they possibly good, and now you've got a minimum member of Congress and she's not the only one there many others who are gonna want to go after him. When he leaves Now I'm gonna tell you this right now. Don't think that they're going to. They're going to Sick. The DOJ. On trump like an attack dog. I don't think they're going to do that. What I do think will happen. Is that will allow it to occur in a lesser level of government. Now that that's not to say. That That's not to say that there's A not no real risk here for the trumps When I say Lester level I just mean further down the federal government, so you'll have the district attorney Cy Vance in New York will look at The Trump organization. And I think they will investigate them. But they're going to try to take it away from the DOJ level at least initially and go lower down, so it seems like It's not coming from the bide administration. But I'm until these for now, these people play hardball. You know, they remember this. You know, the national Souza, who is honestly one of he's one of the conservatives. That I used to read when I was, you know, a young guy coming up in the ranks and, you know, right in college and right after the next to Susie, uh, who I've had on the show many times, and he's a friend of the show. He was treated differently for a completely to say It's nonviolent is even unexamined Raisinets. He gave $15,000 to a congressional candidate who was sure to lose, but he was he doubled up. Essentially, I think you gave to $15,000 contributions. It wasn't supposed to do that. Usually you pay a fine and you're told. Don't do anything else. Illegal for a year. And, you know, we'll just let this go. They made him go to a halfway house. They wanted to send him to federal prison over that. That was the Obama DOJ, and that was acting through pre parole or who was one of Obama's little henchman, and that's the way that they treat their political opponents. They use the law as a weapon. So while I'm telling you that I don't think the DOJ is gonna immediately because it's they wanted to be a little bit more subtle, you know, they wanted to be a little bit more plausible deniability. At least at first, but they are going to investigate people. You know, Maxine Waters is Just saying what a lot of them are smart enough not to say out loud at this point. In Congress and you know other Democrats. But what she's saying is a sentiment that they broadly share, which is that they want to see. They want to see, uh, punishment. They want vengeance against Trump and against his supporters. I think you're going to see I arrest investigations of people who were very vocal allies of Trump. I think you're going to see deterrence extremely hard to turns prosecutions of anyone around Trump for very minor things, and they'll tell us I mean they'll be gassed leading us to say I was sorry. No, this has nothing to do with the fact that You know, all right, We're not. We're not. We're not going after Corey Lou in Taos Key. We're not going after Steve Bannon, or we're not going because of their association with Trump. We're going after them because, you know They broke the law and some serious way and we'll all say, really. Just that's that's the we've seen what they did to Roger Stone. We've seen what they were willing to do. And a Kind of court of public opinion to Brett Kavanaugh. I mean, they try to ruin and destroy people. So one thing that we do need to be prepared for is that even if they get their wish There's gonna be no, There's no outrage. There's no real call for unity. There's no willingness to be better than they've been in the trump era. The left is going to be out for scalps. They're going to be out to make examples of people on you may have this this cub all of the swamp at the top with Biden and other people, you know from the Obama administration. That you know people like blank in and carry, who seem or just in mediocrities who seem relatively innocuous, but it's going to be you know, whoever's running the civil rights division at the DOJ. It's going to be a U. S. Attorney for the Southern district or for the For the Eastern District of Virginia..

We love to do on dressed. And that is celebrating the work of bad ass ladies from their history and today. And that's right because today we are welcoming the peabody essex museum fashion and textile curator pitcher sling card to the show to discuss. The exhibition. Made it the women who've revolutionized fashion and as the museum's website says through more than one hundred works made it celebrates the stories of women who revolutionized many aspects of the fashion industry and traces how these efforts parallel history of women's global struggle for equity and opportunity exhibition is actually collaboration between pem and the kunst museum didn't hog in the netherlands and it features clothing from both of these museums collections. As well as from private and public collections and so from every designer from elizabeth keck lead to lady. Lucille gordon to madeleine to bonnie cashin and low mary. Quant and then all the way to more contemporary designers like rei kawakubo Irishman herpin gina. Kuma you do not want to miss this exhibition. It actually just opened in its on view until march twenty twenty one yes and alas we will not be able to make it to salem massachussetts in person this year especially right now so what better way to celebrate this exhibition them by being joined by his co. curator patriot. Welcome to the show. He had show welcome to dress. It's such a pleasure to have you here today thank you. I'm excited to be with you. So you are here to discuss the peabody essex. Museum latest exhibition the women who revolutionized fashion two hundred and fifty years of design as the title suggests. This is not by any means a small topic. Can you tell us about the exhibit and a little bit about the inspiration behind its creation. Sure absolutely So this exhibition actually is a partnership that we did our we're doing i should say With the consortium and then hand in the netherlands and it is an extension of a show. They put on called them. Vitol's strong women and fashion and their show then travelled to belgium and we are essentially kind of the third venue. But it's. It's an interesting collaboration because it's not an identical repaying of their show so they're installation on which was was beautiful and spanned multiple rooms in multiple galleries and our show is going to be designed a little bit differently And part of reason that we were very excited to partner with consortium is that they're so accommodating on really great partners they allowed us to borrow sixty objects from their election which was huge for us because of course the european collection Phenomenal works that represent into the big european designers for which doesn't have that much representation and but of course being in the united states. We really wanted to draw out of some additional stories that pertain to designers the twentieth century. But also american designers For whom there wasn't as much representation in their show the we've been able to augment With twenty five works from our own collection some of which are recent acquisitions and We borrowed a few pieces from the mfa in boston. We brought to pieces from the chicago history museum and then we're working with To private collectors. So there are a hundred eight mannequins in the show. It's a really big show and it does run the gamut. We say two hundred and fifty years. It's not of course the comprehensive look but it does span that timeframe and so why an exhibition dedicated to i mean. This probably goes without saying what inspired you to do. An exhibition dedicated just to women designers. Well that's a great question It actually takes me back to a time in chicago. Because i was working at the post. Your museum as the custom curators there and of course as a social history museum we were definitely thinking about a twenty twenty s. A hallmark year for the anniversary of the ratification of the nineteenth amendment. And so even then this back in two thousand seventeen By partner just kapoor. And i were already beginning to catacomb the collection and look to see what we might do in honor of women. Because of museum itself was looking to do a year of women based programming and exhibitions. My life changed. Because i. I moved tuesday when massachusetts became the vashon. Tech's curator the peabody essex museum. Is i kind of put that idea dressed. Rest until i was scrolling through instagram. One evening saw me ho. Hey who's curator at the museum post image of stack of books and i noticed all the names on the books. And they were all women designers. She said something pithy like coming soon. And you know a strong women fashion.

They are not permitted to speak directly with Biden's transition team. Unless authorized Mr Biden on NBC tonight talking transition progress, It's a slow start.

"And I would expect the incoming Biden administration to continue taking a tough approach. Working to a secure alternatives. Tonto Chinese technology That sort of builds that global Internet. But in order to do that the United States and its partners need not just Theo sort of ring alarm bells about Chinese technology, not just warn allies partners and you know those sort of persuadable states. That you're either with us or with China, But the United States and its partners need to make sure that they are offering a new alternative one that is commercially a competitive Uh and, uh, that is part of a Let's call sort of a broader model of governance and values that these states can buy into. And joining US history said Here is Matthew Waxman. He is a professor and chairman of the National Security Law Program at Columbia Law, continuing this thread with regards to regulations and law. From the five G and Internet component to the Treasury Department because you mentioned tech companies and we've seen a perfect illustration of the complexities of this play out. Over the last couple of months in the legal and judicial spaces here in the United States with regards to Tic Tac, and here we have Janet Yellen, the former Fed chair of the Central bank, former Fed chair being tapped to be Treasury secretary She's gonna have is part of her portfolio Citius and sanctions and and a host of other different geopolitical impacts. And so from your perspective, what will you be looking for? From a secretary from a secretary Yellen on those particular matters that you've just discussed. Yeah, You know, I actually think one of the mistakes of the Trump Administration was probably sort of placing too much emphasis on I pick talk and certain specific platforms and deal rather than trying to put in place of a broad, sustainable policies that they weren't And special two particular platforms. I think that was a mistake, probably to focus so much on on TIC Tac, as you say, Janet Yellen, coming in, as the Treasury Department nominee is really going to be a critical part of the foreign policy and national security team. He caused a Treasury Department These days plays such an important role in our national security apparatus. There's financial intelligence, which is a big part of our Global intelligence system, but also economic and financial sanctions that I run through the Treasury Department and processes like 50 Assess that are That are shared by the Treasury Department. And that needs to review things like mergers and an international investments to make sure that American national Security interests are well protected. One of their mark one of the sorry Go ahead. Finish it up. Oh, I was just gonna fake. I think a big continuity between the Trump administration and the incoming Biden team is going to be a continued toughness on China.

The entire mission is scheduled to take about twenty three days. China has invested heavily in its space program and it plans to send people to the moon. Eventually
Catherine Coley on Starting Project Binance US
"So in around june twenty. Nineteen i began working on the project. Ryan it's us. Party of wine worked out in my living room. Not much as changed still in my living room but we knew started as ceo via so we. We kicked it off. We figured out what type of platform you wanted to be building for the us. We figured out what where we wanted to Where we could be operating one of the things that you realize when you're operating a marketplace in the united states is that there's a huge amount of regulation oft and it's actually done state level as well so you have to get licenses per state in order to operate in so right. Now we're operating in about seventy four percent of america working every day with regulators to operate in more of those states. A lot of them are on the east coast. And it's an exciting process to be able to build a business that you can justify and get regulated and began anti business in all of these states is something that's one process to do. I equated kind of to applying to colleges have a bunch of college. Students can understand how difficult that was. You have to have good grades. You had to take the sat's you maybe twice a year. Get referral letters you to write essays. Each school has a different essay format. There is the common application. But there's a ton of personal essays that you've gotta right so it's really the application process for us to operate in these individual states wise as well that that kind of each each state has their own requirements and we had to qualify in order to be able to operate so that was really the laying down the foundation of it as well as being able to be par to where the other us marketplace's were When we first launched. We didn't have an app. We were web based only which in two thousand and nineteen. What who doesn't have an app so you've got to recognize the whole world is so in two thousand twenty.

Anticipating the Logistics of a COVID-19 Vaccination Effort
"You have a highly efficacious vaccine and only a relatively small forty fifty percent of the people get vaccinated. You're not gonna get the herd immunity. You need what we do need is we need to get as many people as possible vaccinated so a lot of work still to be done. As we mentioned astrazeneca today joined pfizer and moderna becoming the third maker now of a highly effective vaccine candidate. Their version said to be cheaper easier to transport one of the that wants the vaccines are fda approved. The next challenge will be actually getting shots into arms across our country and around. The world complicating matters. The trump administration has so far not communicated distribution plans with the incoming biden administration. Back with us again tonight. Is mike oester home. Professor and the director for the center of infectious disease research and policy university of minnesota also happens to be a newly named member of the president-elect's covert nineteen advisory board. Michael i presume this helps that up. Twenty day wait to get your hands on. Everything is better than maybe a forty day weight. And i'm not sure our audience understands you've been forbidden from calling your public health counterparts inside this sitting government before we got actual notification that the transition is underway. So does this help. Thank you brian. It helps a lot. The transition team will immediately begin reaching out to those federal partners. Whether they be at the fda or the nih for the cdc so that we can in fact begin. Planning not just for what's happening now but well after january and so this is a very important development and one that will really help us a lot with the vaccine delivery to the united states. Is it a strange feeling that you're some total efforts are the hit the ground running january twentieth and in some cases you're inheriting wheels. That aren't moving. You're inheriting at administration without as we have this conversation a national plan. Well you know. I think it's really important to remember. We do have a number of really highly talented and skilled scientists within the federal government. I mean tony cheese. A classic example there are many outstanding individuals at the cdc in the fda that have had many many years of career service and really outstanding science development and research and so the fact says that they will still be part of this team. going forward. and i know that The biden harris administration will use that scientific expertise immediately. in addition. is you know the incoming administration is already starting to develop their own plants Whether it be around vaccination testing et cetera. So i think it it will be a good hand off that will occur and i'm excited about the fact that we now collectively all of us can really work together with science as the basic of value that. We're all using to judge what we do. So i think the next several weeks will actually be very positive in terms of what we can do to to move. This administered new administration forward. So that on january twentieth. It does hit the ground running. We have a graphic showing the air traffic currently over the united states. Every icon is an aircraft with people on board all those people leaving somewhere to go visit somewhere to then return home. Is it now predicted in your line of work because of all these people getting together. Despite all the government warnings that we're going to see a bump in hospitalizations and the death toll just in time for christmas. You know brian. This is one of the really sad commentaries about where we're at right now is helping america's understand the seriousness of the situation tonight as we said here we have over. Eight hundred thousand americans hospitals around the country with covid nineteen infections. Many of them critically. Ill are hospitals. Are breaking at the seams right now and so. It's really important that people understand. No one is asking them to sacrifice or to reduce their contact with others. Just for the sake of this is really about human life. it's about maintaining our healthcare systems. So yeah this is a real challenge for us and as you've seen as you know having been on this show a number of times with you you've seen what's happened since labor day. We've gone from twenty six thousand cases a day reported to now we're averaging over one hundred and seventy thousand cases and before long will be well over two hundred thousand cases a day that is going to break our healthcare system so please america understand you know we gotta stop swapping air in. The way we do that is we. Don't do all this. Large crowd related activity. That travel is going to be a problem and I don't wanna see where we're going to be in four or five weeks. It scares me a great deal. Dr michael oester home. Our thanks as always for joining us tonight. Greatly appreciate it. Good luck with your work upcoming
Joe Biden Cabinet picks: Who are the president-elect’s nominees?
"Day for reporters covering the Biden transition team is the president elect's Cabinet choices will be Reveal. Of course you heard from ABC a moment ago. The G S a is now releasing those transition funds. John Hudson is covering it all for the Washington Post intact with Cuomo's Taylor van sighs a lot of names that we're gonna have to learn over the next weeks or so. Nominees for some of the bigger jewels in that cabinet crown today. We're for secretaries of State in homeland Security. U. N. Ambassador director of National Intelligence Let's start with Antony Blinken. He's the nominee for secretary of state. What's his background? Well, he's been with fighting for a very long time. He has a sort of mind meld with the president elect, and they worked in Congress together in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Hey, worked at the state Department of Deputy secretary of State and Blinking also worked closely with Biden when he was vice president. A deputy national security advisor s O. They know each other. He's reputation is sort of a liberal internationalist does believe in a strong and large role for the United States. In some ways is a little bit more hawkish in interventionist than the president elect. Hey, support. Blinken supported the intervention in Libya something that Biden did not support. Blinking also supported Ah, large U. S intervention in Syria on so they are totally ideologically in the exact same place, but he's a very sort of faithful servant of the president elect. And the nominee for U. N Ambassador is Linda Thomas Greenfield has been described as a career foreign service officer. She's coming out of retirement, right? Yes, she did retire in the Trump era, didn't her last job in the Obama administration of is our top diplomat for Africa? She comes with, you know a lot you know, over two decades worth of experience in the foreign service, not a political type person per se. I'm not like a lifelong Democrat or anything like that. A career diplomat On, so looks to be someone who would be, um you know, a good soldier over at the U. N. For Biden not heavily ideological. But what has been helping the president elect, reform the State Department and promote diversity, And some of these names that we've seen come out aren't may be familiar to those of us outside of Washington, D C. Like Alejandro Mayorkas Tol head the Homeland Security Department. And Averil Haynes, for director of National intelligence are a lot of these intentionally a political picks or or lesser known names. Well, you're right that these they're not super bugs were the names, but there is a commonality in them in, but they all had, you know, fairly senior roles in the Obama administration, and so this really is sort of a revenge of the foreign policy establishment. And of course we're talking about. We're talking about foreign policy related jobs. So these are not like celebrity type folks. Uh, they are part of the sort of great suited bureaucracies that was often behind the scenes. But these people had sort of fairly senior roles in the Obama decision. Now they're going today be nominated for very, very senior positions in the defied an administration John Hudson with us on coma, news and more announcements to be made. I'm sure in the next 24 hours or so, John. Thank you very much. And that's
Your TV is spying on you
"Want to take you back a little bit in the way back machine when there's a big fuss when physio was the top selling tv brand in the united states and they're still a big seller but they're not the top dog anymore and they got their wrist. Slapped for spying on what television you were watching without disclosing t you that. They were spying like they were and they reached a settlement where they didn't it's one of those idiotic things that the government does where the company didn't have to admit that it was doing anything wrong but said it wasn't going to do the stuff anymore without your permission. so there's a lot of value to ad agencies. Big companies to the tv manufacturers themselves and now with streaming television to people like amazon with their fire sticks and roku and all that To be able to track what you're doing and there's a technology called a cr that allows the tv itself or a third party plug in to know what you're watching and the funny thing is they know what you're watching whether you're streaming it watching it on a satellite watching it on cable watching it over the air however you're watching it can track your viewing patterns and then use that to target you with specific ads. It's very much like what you think about. When you're on wine on your phone or your laptop and you'll go to some store and look at an item and then you'll go to. Let's say a new site or entertainment. Satan sunday an ad pops up for whatever that item was in. So there's a lot of A lot of invasion of privacy involved with this stuff people on the tv business. Say no think how great this is because instead of you having ads for stuff you don't care about you'll only see ads for stuff you do care about and I don't know but here's a wild one. I saw on the wall street journal so since video lost that lawsuit the setting on a video. Tv is automatic. Opt out the you have to voluntarily choose to opt in to share your personal viewing habits. And i haven't seen how video words it because i don't have. I haven't had a video. Tv in recent years. So i don't know what you see on the screen but the wall street journal reports that of sixteen million people who bought video. Tv's since they lost the lawsuit Two and a half years ago. Ninety percent of people have voluntarily chosen to allow what they watch to be tracked. So maybe i'm just much more concerned about this privacy stuff than most people are or it could be that the wording makes it seem like this is just the greatest thing ever for you to let us see what you're watching and what you're up to so know that this is a very active part of the sale of televisions and Various streaming products is the ability to track. What you're doing. And i think that we should have the ability with any of these things. If we don't like being tracked to say leave me alone you do not have my permission to track. And it shouldn't be something that's just a private settlement with physio in the feds. It should be standard operating position. should be standard operating procedure. That you and i get to choose whether we get tracked.
Is COVID-19 seasonal after all?
"Hello this is corona cost a daily podcast all about the corona virus. I'm health reported teigen tyler. I'm physician and journalist alter norman swan. It's tuesday the twenty four. Th of november cinnamon one of the questions that we've gotten a lot from people about over the course of this pandemic so far is whether it's seasonal and on one hand yes. The melbourne second wave happened in winter. But it's hard to really taes out. What's the difference between seasonality and a new virus in globe of susceptible people but in the states which is going into its wind up and also in in other parts of the northern hemisphere was seeing a really straight upwards curve a really scary looking curve. so what do we know about the season -ality or otherwise of coronavirus were joining the first wave. It was said that there was so much corona virus around swamped the effects of seasonality. Although most people expected this to be a winter virus a seasonal virus but they couldn't guarantee it and you just weren't necessarily seeing the effects of it on this week's health report podcast. I've been talking to chris maureen maher. Who's these of health metrics and evaluation in seattle and they've been doing global modeling now on the covid nineteen pandemic which has turned out to be pretty accurate so for the world for different countries and for the united states and they say that when they look at the big data they do find a seasonal effect and they. It's actually quite strong and the fascinating thing is that they predict that the virus in the united states will start to peak deaths from the coronavirus will peak roundabout inauguration day and tail off towards the end of january into february without any vaccine. You'll see a natural peaking and tailing off. We won't go down to zero but it will start to ebb away so in the joe biden was like trump. he would take four credits on day. Two of his presidency for turning around the pandemic. but it'll be natural. What's the driver for it to pay them. Is it that people interacting with a set number of people and you just kind of run out of context. How does how does that pay. Start to come down again. No it's obviously a little bit of an effect of natural museum that but even by january you still not going to see the majority of americans infected with the covid nineteen virus so a little bit of an effect because what they say. Is that even twenty percent coverage of immunity associated with some social distancing cooed tailing off. Now i think they it's simply how their virus response to temperature and although it's still in the middle of winter and pretty cold there are plenty of viruses that have most of their fates in autumn early winter and seem to die way in midwinter and influences a bit like that where influenza unistrokes tends to hit more in autumn than winter depths of winter. Not that we have much of winter. So yep they think it's seasonal tending often and if you are lucky with the vaccine the vaccine does prevent transmission then have an even more dramatic faked as the year goes through. Yeah i suppose they were some early nickname mention. It starts came out earlier in the saying that the virus survived longer at lower temperatures and in low humidity are. Maybe that's the season thing. But what does it mean for us australia. Coming into next year's winter if a vaccine isn't widely available by that time well if we've kept our international borders secure and we haven't had too many outbreaks and we're still social distancing to some extent when we need to enroll able to control then maybe not very much because the won't very much virus around but if there is a significant say outbreak from hotel quarantine for still doing it at that point. Then you could see a major takeoff and victoria. Tasmania parts of south. Australia would be vulnerable to that. So i'm trying to cross my mind that because we have talked about season on corona's before and i feel like we said that it wasn't safe no so will be wrong or is this just more information. I think you feel the wrong thing. T very different. I remember that people saying that probably was a season paper. You couldn't see it. In all the noise of an strength of the pandemic the pandemic was so strong it was masking a seasonal fake underneath the name what they thought was as the pandemic turned into an epidemic and the virus became endemic in other words. Steady in the community and keeping on recurring. Then you would see the effect of seasonality which might mean then you'd see a surge as the goats colder. I like that vision of memory. Yes yeah but no doubts kirk listeners. Who got a much better than either you. Army will fix us up. That's the lately and speaking of other research related things that we've talked about before and we now have more information about Antibodies on the only thing in our immune system and this nearly such out of monash university that shows that perhaps immunity to the coronavirus is long lasting than we feed. Yes so little bit of physiology. Here there are two elements to attack or threaten sweep elements to attacking a virus delicious. Talk of two of them for the moment. The first wave is really the antibody those chemicals in the bloodstream that attach to the spikes of the corona virus and stop it docking with tissues in our body and hopefully kill the virus as well and they're called neutralizing antibodies. now they'll come out of nowhere. They're produced by white blood cells white blood cells that produce antibodies b cells and some b cells have memory for the antibodies. They need to produce. It was a waste of energy then producing antibodies. All the time to a virus that they're not seeing but if avars enters the body they wake up and they say oh hello. I've seen this one before and they start manufacturing. Antibodies and this study identify found a way through using monoclonal. Antibodies to actually attach themselves to these b cells. Identify them they to twenty five people in march who had corona virus and follow them through to september looking at these b. memory cells and what they showed was that they maintain themselves in other words. You can still find b. Memory cells at the end of eight months so that suggests that the body retain the memory and the ability to produce antibodies to the coronavirus sars cov e to. This is not a peer reviewed study hasn't been published in a major journal yet but it is an interesting finding very sophisticated study and great needs to people who've had coronavirus but also for the quest for vaccine. That's absolutely right
Biden expected to announce Tony Blinken as secretary of state
"And the person that is tipped to be his secretary of State. Antony Blinken Telesco years. So I'm not a blink monologist, but I have known him since high school. We were in the same class. 40 years ago, Maurine in Paris, And if biography is personality, I think Tony's biography tells the whole story. He was an American in Paris, living with a stepfather who was the youngest survivor of Auschwitz. And an international lawyer trying to build ties between them the eastern bloc and and the West. And in those four elements. I think it captures Tony's identity. He was an American, and he believes very strongly in America in America's role in the world. As you know, for him a country that can that can really change the landscape, the global landscape, But it wasn't Paris. And so he saw how others Europeans in particular. View the United States at times very unfavorably as a country that tries to bully in that tries to impose its way rather than to work with others. The fact that his step that was who he was, I think from knowing Tony, it imbued in him a strong feeling of, you know, fighting for human rights and fighting for the defense of people, vulnerable people, whether they're refugees or whether they're people who are affected by conflict. And lastly, an international lawyer who tried to broker ties between a time the Soviet Union and Europe. I think that is the diplomat and Tony, who tries to Put himself in other people's shoes and what is going to insist very much on a resumption of multilateral, very transatlantic view of the world. So all those people who have been so nervous on terrified by the damage that they perceived the Trump administration had done to international alliances, institutions internationally collaboration and so on. Will be very pleased that Antony Blinken is the man who is tipped to be the secretary of state. It is true, though, isn't it? That foreign policy may not actually be Joe Biden's pressing issue, given the impact of covert 19 in the United States. Correct. I mean his priority. I think the part of the administration is going to be domestic because of the health implications of the pandemic and the economic implications of the pandemic. I mean, we're facing a as much of the world is a severe economic crisis. And I'm not having mentioned that the racial tensions and the polarization of a country that has gone through an election, the result of which is still not been acknowledged by the by the sitting president and many of his followers, so the party's going to be domestic. Joe Biden is somebody who is a senator. As chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Foreign policy is in his DNA's A Tony Blinken is probably his closest partner. When it comes to Ah, colleague when it comes to foreign policy, So I think you're going to see a big emphasis on the themes that you just mentioned, which is re stitching multilateral alliances. Resuming U. S participation in some of the treaties and some of the organizations that President Trump withdrew from. But both the president and Antoni if he is, in fact, if he does become secretary of state are going to face a world that is very different from the world that they were they were participating in the Obama administration is short four years ago. Image of the United States the credibility of the United States the fragmentation of the world order. Everything has accelerated over the last four years. Well, let's talk about some of the treaties that he might decide to rejoin. We we know that on on climate change, he is going to rejoin the Paris accord. It's also been reported that Jake Sullivan, another Joe Biden adviser, is expected to be named his national security advisor. And in the context of the J C P o a the Iran nuclear deal. The combination Of Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan. Pretty significant. And let's not forget that as you're buying himself, wrote an article not long ago in which he said that the U. S. Should rejoin the JCP away if Iran agrees toe come back into compliance with his provisions. So that has been a commitment that he made during the campaign. It's by the way, the position that I think every other maybe, with one exception, every other candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination made So I think it is. The intent of it would be the intent of the administration to come back in. Now That's easier said than done. They're going to be obstacles. Iran is not in compliance, President Trump has added and continues to add weekly a huge number of sanctions that are going to be Difficult to deal with. But the intense that projector I think has been clear. And as you say, with both Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan again, if both of them if the rumors are confirmed, I think you have a pretty strong sense that That's what the United States is going to try to do, and we'll work with European partners and others to get there. Robert Malley, president and CEO of
Europe's Economy Set to Contract Again as Lockdowns Bite
"As lockdowns bite. The European economy appears to be set for a fresh contraction in the final quarter of 2020 as business surveys indicate that lockdowns aimed of contracting the coronavirus. Have led to a sharp decline in activity in the dominant services sector. What's going on in Europe is going on in the United States were all all shutting down and economies are going to suffer in the first quarter of 2020. Which, of course, puts additional pressure on Congress to come up with some sort of stimulus package, which likely will not happen. You know, for weeks, at least, that's the indication right now. There's no movement again this morning that we have heard from Marsha. Certainly not before Christmas says they're very, very unlikely. But you know the question might become if these lockdowns are so severe and it's it's a major crush on the economy, they may not have any option but to move forward quickly. We will see. But any rate by the way, add curry is coming up in a
Why The Oil Industry Doesn't Fear Biden
"To learn more on the surface. The oil and gas industry is losing a friend on january twentieth. Donald trump the departing president gave fossil fuels his loud support. President-elect biden supports efforts against climate change yet. Some in the oil and gas industry are feeling cautiously optimistic. Npr's camille mosque. Explains why you might have heard that biden's win could mean the end of the oil industry. President trump warned it. Would some climate activists hoped it would and in the final debate biden himself said this transition from their own industry. Yes it is a big statement and that would be a big change over the last decade. Us oil and gas production has boomed. The shale revolution turned the united states into the world's top oil producer. A lot of that remarkable growth happened. During the obama administration and trump promoted the jobs in prophets that resulted but emissions from burning oil gas and coal are the biggest contributors to climate change. Which is already starting to have devastating effects around the world. So how could biden tackle those emissions step one might be a ban on new drilling on federal lands and private loans. It's a different story. They do not have the power to your sake. Somebody in south texas. You can of drill anymore. Rene santos's with snp global plattsburgh says that that kind of a ban would be significant but not the end of the industry is also expected to restore some environmental regulations. Which again won't eliminate all gas. The big question mark is what a climate bill look like her personal. Don't think it's going to be sensitive radical unless you know the more liberal side. All the democratic party gets a lot of influence which are so we see right now. It does not appear to be the case. Climate activists and scientists have called for ambitious action. That might be impossible to push through congress if republicans keep the senate so for now. This doesn't seem like a doomsday. Scenario for oil gas. I don't think it's a wholesale assault on the oil industry. It's just not going to be in favour like it was under president. Trump halima croft is a managing director at arby's see capital markets. She says the biden is serious about climate change but also doesn't plan to do away with fossil fuels. We actually wrote a note over the summer about the biden. Energy plan called hugging the mid line. Not just because. I left the ladas but we really did see this as an effort to sort of the neo. All the oil and gas industry sees room for some compromises and negotiations which might raise the question. What about biden's big statement about transitioning away from oil and gas jin. Snyder is a director at in virus. Which provides data's oil and gas companies. She says that was hardly breaking news. To insider's they know that a global transition happening a move away from fossil fuels is underway at the society level regardless of the administration biden also said quote. We're not getting rid of fossil fuels for a very long time. Snyder argues a president who manages a gradual shift. Away from oil might actually be better for business. The gut reaction is that this isn't good news for the industry but we're actually cautiously positive and politics aside right now. Oil producers are facing a more immediate struggle. The
Trump slams global climate agreement Biden intends to rejoin
"Donald trump rallied against the paris climate accord on sunday telling world leaders at a virtual summit that the agreement was designed to cripple the us economy. Not save the planet to protect american workers. I withdrew the united states from the unfair and one sided paris. Climate accord a very unfair act for the united states. Trump said video from the white house to the group of twenty summit hosted by saudi arabia. He's comments came during a discussion among the world's largest economies on safeguarding. The earth president-elect. Joe biden who takes office in january has said he will rejoin the global pact that the us helped forge five years ago trump contended. The international accord was not designed to save the environment. It was designed to kill the american economy. It is not clear whether trump has even read the paris. Climate accord trump. Who has worked to undo. Most of president barack obama's efforts to fight climate change said that since withdrawing from the climate agreement the us has reduced carbon emissions more than any nation. That is true but it's not that remarkable with its giant economy. The us has far more roar emissions of climate damaging carbon dioxide to cut than any other country except china a more telling measure of progress in various countries is to look at what percentage of emissions country has cut since two thousand five. The united states hasn't been even in the top ten. In percentage of greenhouse gas emission reductions more than one hundred and eighteen nations have ratified the accord which aims to keep the increase in average temperatures worldwide well below two degrees celsius and ideally no more than one point five degrees compared with pre industrial levels scientists. Say that any rise beyond two degrees celsius could have a devastating impact on large parts of the world raising sea levels stoking tropical storms and worsening droughts and floods. The us formally exited the paris pact on november fourth. On saturday the us formally left the open skies treaty which permits thirty plus nations to conduct unarmed observation. Flights over each other's territory. Those overflights set up decades ago to promote trust and avert conflict during the discussions at the climate session. President xi jinping of china the world's largest emitter said the g twenty should continue to take the lead in tackling climate change and push for the full implementation of the paris accord
What's Next for Muslims in America?
"Audit hoda. Novus anomoly continue all Thank you joining us here. On this table where we are discussing. How post election forts. And what's next for muslims in america. I'm sure you can all agree. It's been crazy times and in many ways we're kind of up the woodsmen anyways we're entering new self woods with new challenges to face. I wanted to start off just by asking. What role did muslim voters play in this election. The way we've done things in the past. There has been slow grassroots initiatives. Here and there are different organizations. But this time. There was a lot of And i think you know over among. Muslims voted in the election. That's phenomenal like that's beyond anyone's expectations. Of was there before the election started or the early voting started States like michigan. I think some delivered. They delivered michigan to the biden. Victory and i think minnesota what we snare issues exceptional sixty plus muslims. That got elected this election. And that says something. When you see that in the Legislator reflects what our community looks like need looked at this election Strategically see where we needed to Where we needed to help out in order to get border turn out and what community could actually build those coalitions. I feel like there is the sentiment and i saw this on social media in leading up to the election. There was this kind of sentiment that muslim organizations who Kind of you know. representing The muslim grassroots on the ground for the biden campaign Was being kind of you know there was kind of i. Don't use the word fighting but into dialogue lesage's to be kind About various organizations. And whether or not they have essentially the right to represent listen votes. You think that that kind of infighting is kind of unfair leading up to election where it's so important that muslims gathered together as a coalition and trump office. The muslim communities diverse in there has to be important questions that are asked in our organization. Do need to help be held accountable. so i i see nothing wrong in conversations about directions. Muslim organizations are going. You know as long as they're done in a manner that's productive in in a manner that's intended to move the community forward And i think you know how organizations respond to that is also telling of the direction they want to. And i think organizations and i've been with an organization before at at abc has been under the gun. That's been under community pressure to make changes. I've gone through it on the other side. And i understand that. They namic of running an organization. Dan dynamics of being annetta. That's a separate conversation of how organizations have to react and have to respond to community pressure and valid concerns. I think the question money raise was well is is this a time to talk about you. Know community Is at the time where we have an elections where we're trying to vote out a fascist and You know everybody has a different opinion. There is no right or wrong. Answer in both sides have concerns about the timing and so forth wasn't twenty sixteen on repeat. A lot of people did fall in line disappoint. Joe biden even May not have agreed that he was the best choice. Personally i do think he was a better choice. Donald trump a happily voted for him. I didn't have an issue. Voting for him are his policies. Perfect no by any means. They're not he's not the perfect candidate but i'm not looking for the perfect candidate. I'm not looking for somebody that i'm going to go out and stand in line for hours and it's going to get me. You know up to to see him. I'm i'm looking for president and it's normal. You know somebody that we can. When we do fight against our fight policies and push back on somebody that's gonna be receptive to listening to us so the democratic party joe biden's administration. We have to give them room to prove you know to to to prove themselves to the community. We have to give them room to answer to our concerns and our demands. And and see how reacts and i'm not saying biden is going to completely shut the door issues. He may well come out and be the bus president. We've seen for the community. We do have to give them that opportunity to do so. We have to give that room for him to to work in and navigate with us and see what comes about something that you said that like we just want a normal president and i think that that is really scary for me because i think a normal president in the united states is a warmonger will still enact other types of bands will still children are still being separated in the united states via the incarceration systems People are still being shot and killed by police. They're still surveillance they're still going to be a us empire and so these like he's very core. Fundamental forms of violence are not going to be raised at all. I think that is something that It's central to what i think i'm really pushing for. Is that a yes. We should have diversity of tactics absolutely. We can't just like protests everybody in the street and then like think. Everything's going to change if we don't have a strategy. If we are able to actually think about things strategically. I agree that a diversity of tactics is very important but i also think i think there's celebration i think there's a difference between a celebration of trump leaving office and biden entering office. I think it's like great. I love seeing trump depress. The white house or about the whole thing at the that was great. I love that. But there's truly nothing to celebrate about biden sneaking office and truly nothing to celebrate about going back to the status quo in the status quo is so deeply violent. The bar has been so much lowered based on how much violence that we've normalized. And i think that that's something that we can't allow. We allow ourselves normalized. Violence like biden saying that he's going to reverse the muslim ban. You shouldn't be sprayed it as a hero. That is like the basic thing that he should be doing and so i think that us getting excited. That biden is doing not even the bare minimum but just like reversing back to normal. Violent status quo is not a celebration. I think that unfortunately trump has really really destroyed our sense of normalcy but are also like before that even our sense of normalcy was like really endanger. And i think we don't do enough imagining about what we're actually trying to build toward And i think if we're actually able to sit down and be like all right. We're trying to elect muslims into positions of power for what what is our end goal like. We're going to rally around biden to get into power for what
A deep dive into American Thanksgiving
"Four hundred years ago a ship pulled up on the shores of cape cod mass sits. The merchant ship wasn't carrying. It's normal cargo of dry goods and wine this time it carried more than one hundred people people seeking religious freedom and a new way of life seeking a new world but the world they found across the ocean wasn't new. It was his oldest people who lived there the wont people the people of the first light. It was as old as the corn beans and squash. They grew and as old as the songs they sang. This week on unreserved. You've probably heard about the first meal the pilgrims in native american shared so today. We're going deeper into that history and finding out more about the walnut people and how that votes arrival changed everything. This year to commemorate the arrival of the mayflower celebrations were planned in the united states. Womp dog people were consulted in the lead up to the mayflower four hundred events. This time they wanted their history and truths at the forefront and to examine what it meant when the mayflower landed on this side of the ocean. Things weren't unfolding in exactly the same way in plymouth. England when art historian stephanie. Pratt was invited to advise on an art piece. That was going to celebrate the mayflower voyage. She decided to help correct. Its course and in doing so. She brought clarity to the conversation about the mayflower in. A part of the world were indigenous. History is not as well known. We've reached her at her home in devon england. Stephanie welcome to the show. Hi there so this project you advised on a part of your involvement with mayflower. Four hundred Massive program events mostly in the uk To mark the mayflower voyage. That happened four hundred years ago. So how did you get involved with mayflower four hundred well as sort of a a slow buildup i suppose i began probably in about twenty eighteen to advise on what was called the educational committee or the the educational program for mayflower for hundred and i kind of was snuck in by a friend of mine his name is danny riley and he is probably wanted to spearhead people along with his wife angeles sherlock who have really been very critical of the whole process. The help build up the complete while what they would call sanitizing of history. And so you had some reservations about taking on this role. Can you can you tell us why. That was why i think danny himself said you know this is gonna be kind of a poisoned chalice because You know that you're going to be helping. Make them feel better about what they're doing. And so i know that you were part of shaping. A massive art installation near where the mayflower would have departed plymouth. england near where you are today and it's a. It's a sculpture of lights that spells out the words. No news world's Can you tell me about that sculpture. Well the the artists that were involved in that sculpture. They're called still moving. And they've known each other for many years and i think when the first Announcement of ding for art projects under the mayflower umbrella came up. These guys took advantage but they admitted to me later on that they at the beginning had really no idea what the mayflower was. What it what it represented certainly not what representative indigenous peoples north america. So they were told at the beginning. You know you have to be careful with this but what they came up with was the idea that they would have in lights. The words the new world and they presented that to locals in plymouth. some of whom were very critical and said no. You cannot absolutely cannot do that but you need to talk to stephanie. So they came up to exeter where i live and asked me about it and my very first reaction was says. No that's ridiculous. You absolutely cannot say the new world what are you talking about. There never was a new world. We live on one planet. This is what it is. You know trying to teach little kids. I guess that's how i felt and And they were very very grateful and they listened and luckily they had another idea which was to put up a changing sign or changing signed edge. Which would move between the words new worlds no new worlds no world and so forth so they had several iterations they would use and i said yes. That's that's the one you need to go with.
The Big House Smash Melee & Ultimate online event canceled following Nintendo cease & desist order
"Tournaments in the smash brothers community. Oh that's interesting. I definitely this paragraph definitely starts in the middle on what happened there. Why did that get leader. Kevin what did you do there. I'm pretty sure you really you think it was me. This year's installment of the big house one of the most important tournaments in the smash super smash brothers. He has been shut down by nintendo. Its use of fan. Develop mod meant to improve online play in super smash brothers melee quote. The big house is heartbroken to share. We've received a cease and desist from nintendo america inc to cancel our upcoming online event. Tournaments official statement reads. We were informed. We do not have permission to host or broadcast. The event primarily due to the usage of slippy we are forced to comply with the with the order and cancelled a big house online for both melee and ultimate new quote here from nintendo quote nintendo appreciates the love and dedication the fighting game community has for the super smash brothers series nintendo told cocoon an email. We have partnered with numerous super smash brothers tournaments in the past and host our own online and offline tournaments for the game and we plan to continue that support in the future. Unfortunately the upcoming big house tournament announced plans to host online tournament for super smash brothers melee that requires the use of illegally copied versions of the game in conjunction with ahmad called slippy during their online event nintendo therefore contacted the tournament organizers. Ask them to stop. They refused nintendo no choice but to step in and protect its intellectual property and brands. Nintendo cannot condone or allow privacy of its intellectual property and quote prejudice. Here now while the big house organized robin juggle guy. Horn confirmed these details in an email to kentucky. It should be noted that backing up your your own. Copies of video games for personal use is entirely legal per united states. Copyright law and parentheses. Slippy is a third party modification built by a group of fans to add rollback net code super smash brothers melee before slipping release earlier this year malay players suffered with a subpar infrastructure the mid the nineteen year old game much harder to play at a competitive level but with the addition of rollback net code the benefits of which are widely acknowledged by anyone who takes the fighting game. Seriously malay players were able to finally enjoy great matches with far-flung opponents the arrival of slippy became even more important as the onset of the covid nineteen pandemic pump the brakes on the grassroot tournament circuit with several notable players singing. His praises. many of those players are rightfully making their displeasure with nintendo online in the wake of the big houses. Cancel ization and the hashtag has free. Malay is now trending on twitter quo of all the shit from nintendo. This takes the prize. Adam armato lindgren's another top layer player said quote it's a global pandemic going on is a is a global pandemic going on in intend to once again wants the competitive seem to suffer. Is it too much to ask that. People can play and compete in games from home during this time esa slippery slope where i see both sides of it right because i actually cut the article. I'm off my game. I was so excited. Hang out with you today right. It's going to say of course that to do this like it's been hinted at their you need to be emulating it. And that's why the copyright thing comes in where you're going is that you're not playing the game as it's meant to be you're using this thing and going off of a not so here it is when mainly came out in two thousand one did not have any form of network play adding such necessities The use of the game cube and we emulator dolphin which can which one can only assume nintendo would rather not exist that would make slippy which works in conjunction with the dolphin. A no go. Even if the mod isn't the crux of the problem ended up itself. So that's the mix up problem here right where this is all going from. Where do you stand on this. So i mean. Does the tendons doing their own thing. It's weird that they say that they appreciate love the dedication the fighting game community. Has i the smash brothers series and then they pull something like this and it's it's also interesting that there is that slip up that little bit of confusion with emulation because wasn't it just like a few years ago that they were on the witch hunt for people that were emulating any sort of nintendo game share. Yeah so for for for the point that the person making the article on. I apologize in walker in walker like we're covert. It's a pandemic. were stuck at home. We can't go to ebo. We can't go to all of these other fighting game. I i haven't been. I would love to but i can't. This would be a perfect opportunity to watch that to be a part of that and to see them shut. This down is just really disappointing.
The Foundation: Closing the Technical Skills Gap
"That there are so many people who don't have the access to these programs they don't have the mentorship it's been there. It's not that it didn't exist before people knew it. People 'specially felted in we're experiencing it but now it's out there and there is a stronger effort to kind of eliminate that gap. What kind of programs do you see out there. What kind are you funding. That might help make them. More diverse workforce such an important area of investment and really hard problem to tackle. Can you two examples sensitive other end of the spectrum on the workforce in the spectrum. You as we've suggested especially in a time of kobe. Social capital matters when you need to get a job when you need to connect To someone in house to submit your resume to ask for an interview social capital's one of the top indicators of whether you will in fact get that job and for many of the populations that we serve. This just doesn't exist and we're seeing a lot of interesting pilots again. Around building that social capital building. Networks to siltation mentorship at that allows for individuals to really build their social capital that will enable them to both get in the door and move up once there and having networks to support them along the way. It's absolutely critical on an thrilled to see so many funders now starting real investments in this space on the other end of the spectrum. Something i'm deeply passionate about k. Twelve computer science education. We know that the majority of these technology roles today had access to computer science education and high school. We know that if you work at all chances are you had computer. Science education at high school in what we now know is that computer. Science is offered only in those districts that can afford it and if you look at the maps of reporting we're seeing even in the last year despite huge advances in k. twelve cs education. What we now knows. The majority of schools in the united states the majority in twenty twenty still do not offer one computer science course. The number one predictor of whether an individual go into technology career or not and we simply have to fix that but we have to reframe the conversation around diversity equity technology around early interventions early education and leveling the playing field k twelve level. We the foundation have done this investment in teach for america working in the hardest to reach the codes in the country training in place in computer science teachers in those markets in bringing computer science coursework and rigor to schools that otherwise. Have it but we have a lot of work to do here in. And i you know we talk about diversity intact for the last ten years now. This is felt like the issue is your and i just hope that we can move to a place where we understand that early. Interventions are absolutely critical. If we are ever to see the needle move on this what do you think the problem is. I mean as as you said we've been talking about this for a decade. Is

It's hard to figure out how to talk about items related to politics at this late date however turns out a lot of voting is happening and by a lot of accounts. Many of these early votes that are being cast are being cast by the youths. The young's the youngsters the most coveted vote in America that never seems to happen. and. So we wanted to do a deep dive into the youth vote and this idea that we are in gerontocracy no matter who wins the November election. The White House will be occupied by the oldest sitting us, president, Congress the presidency, and the electorate are all aging and so we want to talk about where that leaves young people and their political clout in our political system. Oldest president whichever guy wins ever elected to that office, which is simply mind boggling but Gerontocracy do me A little a little more definition here which Merriam Webster defines. Thank you producers Gerontocracy rule by elders. In this case, it really does mean specifically that our government is run by often voted for by people who are older and getting older right the average age of a member of Congress right now is fifty eight. That number is just been increasing since nineteen eighty-one and according to a piece I read in the Guardian Typically Congressional representatives right now are twenty years older than their constituents. It's crazy. Now, we should say here for those of you in that age bracket who Defined Gerontocracy as it were. Don't add us if if you know what that means because look, it's not to say the right I'm just getting myself deeper into trouble here it's it's not dead people who are seasoned cannot govern effectively but the question is, are they representative of the American electorate and the American population more specifically as a whole right there is a chance that they may be around to see the results of some of the decisions, the votes they are taking. Yes always happens but it but it's it's a topic worth exploring, and so we're. Yep.

I didn't know that that was. I hope he's right now, so yeah, but we have time to talk about. We have breaking stock market news I'm just in the lunchroom getting a little caffeine juice and they're reporting. The Dow is down almost a percent. They brought in their business reporters and positive. Sean. Our Wall Street. Analysts is going to what. The downside why the drop I'm going to need you to stop. I know what you're doing down all the present currently this is. Not How a dulce look at the market Joe what no their breathless in there. They're yelling on the cable news channel I will not partake in this nonsense. See why it down. Is it down on news of the Corona virus is a beautiful example of freaking Cable News, and an an even more ugly manifestation of it full credit to Oh. It's just a bunch of numbers. They emailed us. the bubble Wallace News story, ask our news thing fake news fake news. That's our headline fake news fake news. It wasn't a frigging news. They're still calling it at a news on the Cable News. It was simply. The garages which are assigned more or less randomly there at the race track. They have garage doors. They're manual. Yell left them up. You pull them down via a rope. All Garage Bays have little loops in the rope, so you can grasp it with your hand and down. Somebody cut the loop off of this one. And you can see it. There are all sorts of pictures at shorter etc. It's just a loop of rope. So you grab it. And that's what still being called a news in the news. I actually went to the The old, the old dictionary, and a noose is not a simple loop of rope folks. Civic not specific purpose state from statement from NASCAR WE appreciate. The FBI's quick and thorough investigation are thankful to learn that this was not an intentional racist act against Bubba. of new stories since two thousand fifteen I think if I remember correctly, there's been eight of. They've all turned out to not being they'll. They got a tremendous amount of news coverage rife. We don't live in a country. This league will. It shouldn't be surprising to most of. It's not surprising to me. We don't live in a country where people are running around. Put nooses places to frighten black people. It's just not really a thing, right? It is a thing for social justice warriors. There's a great quote I got it here somewhere. It's from. Ben Carson he said when the demand for racism exceeds the supply. You must create more. It's actually a really nice twist of economic principle, but. These incidents are always social justice warriors trying to create more racism because they can't find enough and nakedly progressive radio. Today is reporting. It's still not known how the news came to be. There are Walleye. It's not a news. If there's any why to it and it's that somebody decided to create a sensation. By throwing a simple loop of hope into a NASCAR garage, or it was already there by cutting it off. Just it's it's beyond nothing it's it's. It's a negative story. It's a he can't be measured. It's. This is so troubling and the news media having Gone Berserk for a couple of days over the story are now trying to act like it's still a noose, and they just don't know why it's in there. And it was A and and they're not even saying with the F. B. said which is, this is nothing. There's nothing to see here. A lot of the stupid stories that The media runs with even though they're you know they're not what they claimed to be. You know they're not. They're not really that consequential other than making you cynical about news, but these are consequential. There are much people that heard the story particularly I'm guessing in in black communities about a news and will not hear this part, right? And you know it's really frustrating or any of the other eight nuisance instances in the last half decade. Right right exactly you hear the story you do not hear the murmured update if it's aired at all, and what's frustrating to me and I should be used to. This point is how incredibly dishonest all these media outlets are. There are conservative websites and publications that have. All of the facts all the evidence you need. They have a series of pictures of this specific garage and that specific rope this week last week last month. ETC, because there's all sorts of security footage and just NASCAR footage of that garage complex, and it shows clearly what happened in what didn't happen. It's known and the FBI was definitive, but they're not reporting, so there's enthusiasm for the story. Obviously, because a lot of the media wanted to be true for some reason, they enjoy the fact that there are white supremacists threatening black people There's also the cutbacks in in newsrooms in dollars so just journalism just isn't as good because. I would think this would. It could have been uncovered really quickly. Yes, I somebody saying. Well. Can I see this news and put a picture of it in the newspaper or on television, or whatever and can you show me where it was? And and and there has to be security film because their multimillion dollar operations in every one of these garages so I doubt they're just left for anybody any random white supremacist, just wandering out news, right and that sort of thing. Yeah, you know what's really weird is Matt Weaver who is a I think he's A. Sports reporter Oh he's the associate motor sports editor for Autoweek USA and autoweek racing. He specifically asked Nascar. Isn't that part of the garage pulled down rope, and they said no, absolutely not. It's a news. And then the FBI comes in, and says the the opposite I. Don't I. Don't know what Nascar was thinking Maybe they just want to seem woke. This is so strange scared of even hinting maybe the. Maybe they're just scared. Especially at the time when the story broke, 'cause things were a lot hotter last week than they are this week. maybe when the story broke. They're just scared to death of slowing it down at all. I, think also the context of this story happening within the same week of them have in their whole confederate flag thing to there's that I think that backdrop shouldn't be ignored about ball absolutely over around the store as a huge factor, sure yeah, and just made such beautiful narrative. Brave black driver leads a campaign to ban confederate flag white supremacists. Lunatics put noose in his garage to threaten him. Except, that didn't happen. And it almost never ever is the case. But it'll happen again next month on some college campus when they open up again, some activists will decide again to quote Bend Carson. There isn't enough racism to meet the demand, so we'll manufacture some well. We'll see what people think of the media. We've got a new list out. On how people feel about institutions now compared to not that long ago and I mean they're all institutions are taken a heck of a hit right now. which means we have no trust in anything. We don't believe anything and we don't have.

"It's this idea that the governor's not the president but the governors are shutting down your constitutional opportunity to be free of movement to be happy to work. And that's really what you're feeling. Now you're feeling people who are angry. Who are being held. Their guns are going to be taken away. They have to stay home. They don't have freedom of movement so it's all become a civil rights argument now and a gun rights right and when when when people are hearing that their freedom is truly under threat and that they should prepare to fight. That's that's combustible from what I can tell. I was not surprised but alarmed at how the movie plan damage that was on youtube and then taken off and then spread around the universe How how quickly that took hold? Can you just talk briefly about that? People are hungry to know so thing to have it explained to have the inexplicable explain to them in a coherent way. And even if everything about it is debunked is seriously ridiculous. Is Outrageously wrong if it makes kind of sense to them and especially if elites knowledge based institutions in sadly people like Tony Vilocci Say This isn't true. This can't be true. That in a way blesses a slew of covid nineteen misinformation has been going viral on social media. One video making the rounds or call plant and conspiracy theory now floating about which alleges that Corona virus was engineered to increase. Vaccinations video went viral on a wide range of platforms including facebook video known as plan. Dimic. It makes some very controversial claims about the COVID nineteen pandemic leading critics. To call it simply a mash up of conspiracy theories put together in one video. This bind. Journalism is in this is the bind. Universities are in this is the bind experts like FAO. She had redfield in. How do you? How do you convince people who just simply don't believe it and for years have been conditioned not to believe experts so when a pandemic like corona virus hits people want? Expect a big reason why it's happening a huge reason. What's going on Away that it could be explained. And if somebody can put together a tanner twelve or twenty minute video and have a story that involves of the other elements that always exists big government elites that rejection by powerful people and effort to keep information away from the little guy in a way that really feels. Oh yeah that's what they're doing. All right should facebook. Should they shut that down? Knowing that it's wrong you know nonsense. Should they shut it down just because of that? Well who's playing God here? I think it's a legitimate argument in a democracy. What do you do about that for years? Now you've covered politics economy national security. I'm just curious. How do you weigh this moment? Especially regarding truce and The Info that you describe. How do you weigh this up against the other threats that you've covered before this is the coming together of all of the things we've reported for decades now this is take them all take? Wmd take torture. Take a war in Iraq. Take nine eleven. Go back to things that happen. During the Clinton Bush had measured the first Gulf War. Take all of it all of it and put it the social upheaval in the society. The financial collapse in two thousand and eight just list of boom boom boom all the things. We've reported on for all these decades. This feels to me and the team. I'm working with as the as the big moment. This is where it all comes. Together and conspiracies are at the heart of it of course because they've all grown out of all those other events it really is the fundamental moment from my point of view for everybody the people who are living through it especially but those of us who are trying to tell the story and sort out what is truth.

Dispatch comes from Mass General Cancer Center when facing the unknown. It is often the small acts of courage that we experience in our daily lives that power us to face another day. We're all in this together. So Mike I want to shift to the virus itself and so you're you're producing this from well before and you know. I can remember vividly before we all had to leave. The offices are our conversations around this phone. And how urgent it felt at the time. Then Corona virus hits. What's going through your mind? Were you looking to see when would conspiracy theories start to Bubble up and what did you see? Well there was really no doubt we were shooting in New York series of interviews and it was basically the week of March twelfth. So we're in New York. We're shooting interviews about conspiracies about all the things you and I have just been talking about and With experts and people who do it and all kinds of things like that and we keep hearing news reports and we keep hearing about this rising crisis and that it's coming and we've been talking about it before but we're in New York now and we start hearing. There's going to be locked lockdown. In other words I very early. A Corona virus conspiracy is Uttered in our presence and people say why people were starting to come to do interviews with gloves on and you know sanitize sanitizers with them and they were looking at us. These are people who are in the middle of the conspiracy world and they were saying the Chinese have released a bioweapon in the United States of America. It's going to take over New York and it's GonNa Shut New York Down. You guys better get out of town and we said well. The better part of valour is for us to to get out of here. We rented a car white down and drove back in the middle of the night and started to invent a new way to shoot so that we could. We could finish the film and certainly began to research. What's going on with the corona virus? Conspiracies so I mean it's interesting that they came in with conspiracy theory that this was being spread by China and there was a conspiratorial aspect to that but the idea that New York would shut down if they start to spread that idea and then New York shuts down. What happens to people listening to those conspiracy theory? So they believe it more. I mean this is what I'm trying to get underneath like. So does that mean then. People start to think well they were right. Yes I mean. The beauty of big powerful conspiracy. Theories is that they often seem to be right. We all remember Watergate you know we all remember Information about WMD. We all remember that those were conspiracy theories at one moment. People were saying. Wait a minute. The Bush administration doesn't have any proof for this and a lot of people. Progressives said. Yeah that's right but It was viewed as a really crazy thing to assert at the moment. So enough things happen. that come from conspiracy theories that people do believe them especially a certain cohort and in this case you had a large group of Americans who already are used to having stars like Jerome Corsi. Who in the film Alex Jones and and others who they know? These people are the sort of rockstars of of conspiracies and they know and trust them and when they start to say especially in the very beginning this is this is not a virus. It's GONNA come. This is media hoax. It's a desire to blame. President trump a lot of people who were his supporters in his base. Really of course believe that especially when Fox's heralding it and And it's IT'S A it's a it's a desire to shift. The blame to trump is what they all said in a lot of people believe that when when the virus itself started to show up and people started to die broke out in. Seattle and was on its way to New York. That's when that's when the message. That corona virus was intentionally spread by Chinese operatives. Going a lot of people dealing an explanation for what was happening began to believe them right. So is that the top conspiracy theory is that is that the one that's gotten the most track and tell me. Tell me what's the one that's gotten the most traction? It gets better than that so early. You have the left in the media hoax to blame trope. Then it's corona virus is intentionally spread by Chinese operatives that makes a comeback a little later but at the time that was everything then a right around that time. Another group of people of Anti Vaxxers were very big on the idea that the virus is is being acted on because of a as a result of population control efforts by a Bill Gates and Bill Gates becomes the New George Soros of this particular issue. The idea that he wants to plant that they WANNA plant That the Gates Foundation wants to get into vaccines but it also wants the devices in people microchips. That becomes a huge. Wait a minute. We don't we don't want anything from them then. Of course that morphs into the deep state plot to eliminate freedom which is a lot of what you're seeing. Now look behind me here. They are still lining the streets. They are still blaring the horns. Many would signs saying that. Essentially liberty and the governor's executive order have little to do with each other out of frustration out here on the streets. They wanted. Gridlock rallied outside the state capital.

Amazing so Mike you know you and I are so used to sitting across the table and just talking and today we're talking remotely which is of course a sign of the Times but thanks for joining me on the dispatch pleasure over the years. You and I have long talked. I mean this is now going on almost a decade talked about conspiracy theories how they take hold how they spread and You know we've always wondered what the right timing was for a big film on conspiracy theories you to talk to us about why now. Well I think one of the things we've discovered radian all the years of making these sounds about Washington and the White House and the presidency is the extent to which To try to come up with unifying explanation of why what is happening in American politics and what's happening especially when we experienced in two thousand eight two thousand nine time period The rise of the tea party again and we wondered how. How does something like that get started? How does it? Grow? How does it influence our politics? And and and as you know from our earlier discussion whether we should make this summer that we can't believe that the conspiracy theories are central to America's politics right now for sure and have been growing that way through the Obama administration and up to now been living forever but they are central to. I think what's happening our politics. You're a director who loves to tell a story through people. So Mike Who's been central and you're in your character portraits. Well the way we're telling. Our story is through the rise of Alex Jones. It is Monday may eighteenth year to twenty twenty emergency transmission pro human future and we have a great responsibility here on the broadcast. Really lay out. You're going to be playing and I dare say you choose to accept this mission. You have an incredible responsibility because we have a real chance stopping the new World Order. Rise is nothing is of conspiracy theory in American politics. You Watch him Starting backwards Nine eleven and moving and to to this moment now where he gets literally gone from the French right into the Oval Office. Many people in the cell call president trump to can spirit or and cheap because he does have a conspiratorial mindset and has had colleges career but Jones and trump are connected in twenty fifteen twenty sixteen by Roger Stone. It becomes its second major character of its own. All whatever they talked about in that incredible summer is amplified by Vladimir Putin Russia and it is all service. Donald Trump and trump's presidency. We get the left in they're pretty substantially after trump is elected. But in these incredibly important years it is Jones that you can watch the gloss the power the reach of the modern political conspiracy Stone Jones and trump. What is that moment? When is that what happens? What goes down so Alex Jones once upon a time a fringe late night access the TV guy in Austin Texas and now live from Austin Texas Alex Jones. Well I've been warning you about it for at least five years all terrorism that we've looked at the World Trade Center Oklahoma City to Waco has been government actions. They need this as a pretext. Bring you and your family martial law. Same is accentuated by the fact that he has figured out how to use the Internet to connect fringe people. Otherwise you've always had conspiracies and they were out there passing Mimeographs letters back and forth once Jones figures out how to build a network from facebook instagram to Youtube. All the ways that you can spend a conspiracy and connect people who in them suddenly. He's the guy big powerful force on the fringe and when he discovers these but it has to. He has to get more and more outrageous. And the conspiracies have to get bigger and bigger at this time he's primarily an entertainer and to salesman supplements body armor for the coming Armageddon. That will come because the world government is GONNA take over. Forget everything you've been told about. Long-term food storage when the collapse happens. Say Dot Kazuo revolutionary wonderful.

You're listening to marketplace this is marketplace. I'm Kai Ryssdal. We spend a whole lot of time on this program talking about American workers. We talk about them on the first Friday of every month when the jobs report comes out at today two hundred sixty six thousand new jobs but talked about in the jobs report being not to Doug on bad more people coming into the labor force as well. We talk about him when we're talking about wages and why they're not going up. Wages are just keeping pace. We'd use. That's a great American workers. Purchasing power has basically stayed steady. And we talk about him when we talk to the people doing the jobs where they have to scramble the most when there are big changes in the national and global economies. Prices are tumbling every day. This is still that. We ordered six seven eight months prior. If there's one thing that retailers do as we adapt and we talk about him because the American labor force is the engine of this economy but really. How much do we know about the people who make this economy work and whether or not this economy's working for them that's the through line of a series? We're launching today. Called the United States of work digging deep into the labor force and telling the stories of people in it some definitions. I though I think we are talking here about everybody over. The age of sixteen. Who has a job wants a job and is looking for a job? That's one hundred sixty four or so million people. We are not talking about people who don't have a job or looking people who don't work outside the home active duty military and people who are incarcerated but one hundred sixty four million is way too many people to call up and talk to two. Here's what we did. We took big picture data about those one hundred sixty four million people. What kinds of jobs they do. How the government classifies them and what the demographic breakdown is and then we came up with ten profiles ten archetypes to roughly match the labor force as a whole and then we went out and we found those people in real life. Hey It's resulted in Los Angeles. How are you? Hey Stephanie Silverman in Nashville. I'm good how are you doing? Hi Fi we've got a doctor in rural Ohio. I'm the owner. I'm the employer on the physician and I'm also the plumber. Sometimes a hairstylist. In Boise Idaho Boise small. So it'd be interesting to be like at a restaurant and you'll go over and you're like Oh man. I gave up a bad haircut a long time ago. A truck driver from Kansas City Missouri. I noticed people swerving. I noticed people texting. I noticed people looking back in the back seat at their children. Them and seven more and over the next week or so and for the rest of the year. We're going to be following all ten at work at home at school for some all of them though making a go of it in this economy. This is the United States of work. Always things that you don't like about your job you work hard for what you want your ups and Dale Good Job. Millions Hustle like working fast. It's not a career lifestyle. The first stop on our ten person journey through the United States of work is New York City. Men's New York real estate. It's all like closing grant. I'm in a Pretty Standard Manhattan office building right near Thirty Fourth in eight to meet Michael Durant. Hey I'm Michael. How are you thanks for taking time? Sarma Hannah's wet. It's raining outside and thirty one years old native New Yorker Certified Public Accountant by trade. He worked here the firm of Prager Mattis for a couple years give or take were mid-size accounting firm nationals practice and we also have expanded internationally. So we're we're growing. We're growing by the construction. They're store. Yeah we sat down on the couch around the corner from his cubicle near kitchen that people were wandering in and out of we should say here the talk about his place in these United States of work Tell me about being A. Cpa what do you do every day? When it's not taxis and taxis and right we know what you're doing compliance but throughout the year we work with particularly my departments high net worth individuals who trust in the states. All about that planning for the future. We're what legacy do you WANNA leave the. How do you WANNA leave it? Protecting assets is really something we do. Lago spends most of his days at a desk or in meetings looking over numbers and talking to clients in our ten person reimagining of the American labor force. He's one of four people in the broad category of jobs that the Bureau of Labor Statistics Calls Management Professional and related occupations in real life. That's nearly forty percent of all the workers in this economy. The biggest category there is an includes teachers and CEOS. Dentists registered nurses and architects as well so big picture How's your economy right now? I mean you're economic day to day is good fine. You need more. What for me. I would say it's on an upward trend. You know it's not you know who doesn't want a better economy for themselves. But I wouldn't say I feel any pressure or too much pressure from the economy like I'm in a career field where it's a squirted training now. Cpa's are needed and firms are always looking to hire so the economy for me is really well because skill set is needed it makes about eighty five thousand dollars a year Michael. Does he's got a 401K. Couple of months savings in the bank. He bought an apartment up by Yankee Stadium when he was twenty one to tell me anxious. Fan Right of course. Okay when they're not at home which makes a lot of sense and if you lost his job tomorrow I can easily say. I'll be fine. No problem that's not to say that every person in this slice of the labor force is doing fine. Because they're not but people like Michael. With college degrees marketable skills and professional certifications do tend to out earn other kinds of workers. Michael though didn't always know that this slice of the labor force would include him. How did you wind up here? I mean when you were fifteen. Were being account. It's going to be a mechanic. You're going to be a mechanic. Yes so so. My grandfather owned a trucking garage He fixed trucks and cars. This is something I've been around all my life. I like cars. Fast and furious came out when I was like so all of those things where I've seen so myself going to high school working at McDonalds at the time. So I think I was making six seventy five an hour and when the high school senior came in who had just finished her internship and she explained a process. You've gotta take all these extra classes and get get such and such grades and at high school. I'm thinking they just want to go outside to have fun so I wasn't interested until she said and then if you do well you get this internship. You could make ten dollars an hour now is like he does it in winds up getting an internship with the accounting firm KPMG. I believe it was ten or ten fifty an hour so it was definitely a big bump and it was exposure. If you hadn't gotten that internship way back And then been exposed to keep him G and all of that. Where would you be right? Now what would you be doing? Probably be mechanic like pep boys or something just because I had no exposure turn else other than manual blue collar labor. The only person in my life who had a college degree at the time was my grandmother which she didn't use. She preferred working with her hands. So fundamental your first generation rate I mean pretty much real real but that internship that exposure didn't just change Michael's expectations about his future. It changed his family's economic expectations to. Hey how are you going on? It's good to see. I went up to Michael's apartment a stadium to visit him and his little brother age zone after a while teenagers do. Aj's in high school. He and Michael are sixteen years apart and his plans for the future are markedly different than his brothers. Were at his age. I guess I have a different history than Michael because I have a bunch of people telling me go to call his. They're here to support me. Aj just went on a College tour NHPC college tour so he got how many SFU's eight schools thirteen. That's cool good for you. That's awesome Tell me about this camp that Michael to a Columbia so a few years ago I was sent to this tech camp at Columbia because at that time I was really into programming and I wanted to grow up being the next Bill Gates. Or that's a pretty big old Michael sitting on all right. Yeah that's the goal goal so think about that in fifteen years. This family went from one brother. Thinking grow up to be an auto mechanic to another brother knowing he's going to college and thinking he might grow up to be Bill Gates but it's not just aj who's got more school in his future so classes at six fifteen so we got about a half an hour four nights a week after a full day of work. Michael heads across the East River to the City University of New York School of law. I just always wanted to go to law school professionally. It expands my portfolio of services or abilities that I will have to provide But also looking at myself and the difference between my friends and even family members and differences. I got a different education nat allowed me to take advantage of more opportunities Michael and Aj to probably will be able to live and save and yet pay off their student loans because education gave them the ticket to the slice of the American labor force. So this is the school here I actually for me just the school in general represents future opportunity. I think that's what most of us come here for the future ability to affect change so that was Michael Durant the first in our ten person construct of the labor force. Ten people were using to represent the one hundred sixty four million people who make this economy work later in the week. The other nine some who didn't go to college but found opportunities in other ways some who tried it but decided it wasn't for them and some who went to college but aren't using their degrees on the program tomorrow though we're heading west. I tell people all the time. We have over nine hundred bars in Portland which is a lot. We have about twelve bartenders for every bar. And you don't need that many if you want to know more about how we use that data from the. Bls's came up with a list of people you're going to be hearing from. We've got a whole piece about it at our website. Marketplace dot org slash work.

I'd love to hear these and climate pirate Greta Thornburgh sailed the Atlantic zero emissions boat you like that Segue and appeared on Capitol Hill yesterday with a singular message wake up she says this this is not the time or place for dreams. This is the time to wake up. This is the moment in history. We need to be wide awake. This is the biggest crisis in humanity. That humanity has ever faced. You cannot solve a crisis without treating it as one stop telling people everything will be fine. It will not be fine. Thornberg is easily. The most high profile climate activist in history since at at least Al Gore is the only other one that I think even reached this height. He's not nearly in the door lock box and it's the right idea though she's always sixteen and on a two-day trip to Washington she witnessed are divided government close up and told trevor no on the daily show that the thing that sets America apart from other countries. She's visited about climate changes that we are still still arguing. That climate change is real. She and a group of youth activists met with Nancy Pelosi Wednesday in presented a set of demands including the call supported green new deal when she also met with Obama and if you haven't seen this video you should see it grab a tissue yeah. She also said. I don't know if you were GONNA. mentioned bone of my favorite quotes was she said I don't want you to listen to me. I want you to listen to the scientists scientists yeah the exactly point mic drop right there right yeah and she she also met with Schumer but she did not meet with trump and she didn't meet with any Republican leaders instead. She protested outside the White House. Yes you probably be like the first minor trump ever punched in the Oval Office so you've been area with Jordan. Can you imagine like ours Asian ago because when you're young you just don't give a fuck if punched you mean groped no probably right right yeah no. I. I feel like the whole thing is trump's. He's meeting his mash in so many ways like he doesn't understand climate change. He doesn't respect you know like women or right exactly exactly yeah so saying he'd be so infuriated emasculated by sixteen year old. He wakes part as like influential yeah. Mike Dropping volcano which is very ironic. She could votes in America today. Yeah I commend her so much like what she's doing like. You said I it's it's a youthful spirit but also in at something more than that. She's like this amazing leader that I didn't even know the world needed like just the fact that this is her future on the all our future but like someone at her aged be so wise and articulate. What a lot of people at her age. You're feeling right now and that's the thing too is the age thing Jalil you bring that up and that's a great point because during in her appearance before Congress there was also a young conservative activist named Benji backer. He's a founder the American cons- Conservation Coalition a group of young conservatives concerned about climate change climate science is real. It's not hoax he said addressing trump in his testimony as a proud American lifelong conservative as a young person. I urge you to accept climate change for the reality. It is and respond accordingly mainly. We need your leadership so you know thanks to Greta. Millions of young people are set to strike today Friday by walking out of class and this is expected to be the single biggest global global environmental demonstration in history so cool and the organizers have five demands green new deal the respect of indigenous land sovereignty environmental justice protection and restoration vision of biodiversity and sustainable agriculture and for more information on this you can head to strike with US dot org but you're so right about the age thing I think I it it comes to a certain point where a lot of the boomers are thinking. I'll be dead and someone like me thinking oh it'll be fine and then someone like her is leg. No I will not have the luxury of thinking that I'll be fine in my twenties. Sleigh I'm thinking in my forties which still taking for granted I'm like. Oh yeah whatever you know Oh but I forget four days. It's like the twenties like every time I get older. I forget that you feel you. Never feel old and you never really get old. It's just like you never feel like even have time until like in reality polity. These things are gonNA affect us in our prime lifetime. You know like this is crazy but even as a millennial is so full Jada to it I respect Tur- so much for for constantly keeping that drumbeat going it's so important and just so relevant to me yeah and this is what Obama was talking about about about hope. This is his hope. Hope wasn't I'm going to win an election. and everything's GonNa be Great. That wasn't the hope he was talking about. The hope he was talking about all the young people people being born that are going to who wash over this country like a wave of awesomeness and that is the hope that his whole thing is about the really sad thing is that environmental racism is very the real and the groups of people that are going to feel the change first and hardest is always gonna be communities of color APP because of that. There's going to be this sense of safety. The people who have any amount of privilege really going to experience during it when it starts getting really Vati and then you've seen that in your lifetime Katrina tore you were right in it yeah. It happened so quickly yeah. I was just thinking about that today. It's funny like it just like flashbacks of wow yeah. America can become a third world country just like that overnight almost when you merge like two classes is one. That's been deprived of basic rights in another WHO's been like so privileged. Don't even know what oppression even is really. It's like that disconnected which is almost like ah I know. It's crazy to say rich. People have a blind spot. That's diversity but I truly do think when you're born into wealth. I don't blame them. Sometimes for beings and I don't mean like the really cool liberal roll or Conservative moderates but like you know really rich. Conservatives are like deal with it. You Know No. They're gonNA come for you they're going to it's going to be like the purge. You don't want it to get bad. Trust me this affects. You and it's not your fault that you can't see. It helps somebody on Labor Day like hey. I'm just WANNA remind all the rich people in corporate owners that you know the reason that we have minimum wage and Labor Day is because we you know we were going to come and kill you in your houses and this was the deal that we had so that we you didn't do that just a reminder yeah you told me to pull myself up on my bootstraps and B. can't even food when exactly you can't afford boots you can't you're basically living wages and then they're. GonNa say like sorry. I just think some conservatives tell liberals to get guns. You know like Oh if you're trying to take guns away. You better get guns yourself and I'm like okay. If that's true lies this. Isn't you said it no. You don't want that you don't want it unless just try peacefully through policy yeah. Can you imagine if this is what conservatives are like just angry right now. We've Democratic Party is interest in such a giant sleeping bear. Yeah Shit actually gets like who is normal everyone actually in and goes to bed for one hundred and fifty or so years beer baron. There's a revolution absolutely will be on. You know we'll be here. We'll all be able to. I say we were there for the revenue. Not just keep my head on the corner. Tanabe here for it could be a blessing and if you don't know what I'm talking about. We've been talking since the beginning of Muller. She wrote that all I wanNA know is what's in the Miller report fully unredacted and all the underlying evidence in grand jury material but I don't think I'll live long enough for that to be declassified so we're working on a way to keep my head alive live after I pass away so that I can figure it out although we did have God on the podcast and he assured me that once I do pass on to the next realm he will show me all the unredacted materials serials underlying evidence in grand jury stuff so shout shout out God. Finally we learned Katy Waldman the communications director for Republican Loser Zor Martha mcsally and former defender of trump's border policy as a press secretary for Department of Homeland Security has been hired as Mike Pence's press secretary whatever ever but the ski be part of this story is that she's also dating Stephen Miller. Oh that's why I put in my script. Wait for response. Ha dating was trending. I didn't know you like the reason by okay. I thought it was like one of those. GimMe reason why you would dates even millions. I want to get into this by someone actually is dating him. Yeah no reason no reason no reason unless I wanted a free membership club for men which I don't need you know she must actually I believe in his policy because I see a lot of people seem to actually hey you know Mexicans and stuff like I unfortunately I think there's so many people there that you think will you're like you. You know you're an attractive person person you got promise and they ended up being racist and I'm like come on and so they're probably I assume she's attractive because he in comparison to him. It's really attractive. She's pretty cute. I would think and orange actively. She's pretty cute. She's nobody I would ever if you're a conservative and you're dating someone that worked for the president. I mean that's gotTa feel good but I can't relate to a conservative any further other than that general. It's actually know any too much she except for my crazy uncle yeah but she she was the press secretary for Department of Homeland Security and I'm sure Stephen Aloha lot to do with that policy and then Charlotte Clamor tweeted quote my thoughts and prayers go out to anyone dating Stephen Miller. We've covered a few stories on how trump supporters can't seem to get a date date. esquire vanity did one and do you remember especially in. DC A lot a lot happens in California when you to and so you get to this point where there's nobody like. There's like not plenty of fish in the sea. dot com should be dating site for trump supporters so they all. It's gotTa that'd be very incestuous. They all just have to fuck each other because the the like where you where else are you going to go well yeah and I figured that would shoot us in the foot because saying something like that is it's only funny for a moment but eventually eventually of course they're going to find a date like that's why thinks only among themselves and that's who they were going to be the whole time. They're not gonNA data. Political liberal activists like they're going to date someone who thinks like like them. I mean unless today we're way hotter Yup. I that's another thing pulling. People are hot on both parties but that's unfortunate because it really confuses me it depends it depends on if the brain is factored in to any of your your never actually like because to me like hotness is is mostly liaison inside and so that's where all the blood is yeah. I'm a little I can be a little physical attraction to I factor that in that's why Stephen Miller is is really unattractive but you're right and also on both levels. He's an attractive but Yes abo sexual exist..

"For a younger public like the United States. There was genuine concern seeing where small r republicanism can lead. So it a time where the French were basically horrifying everybody Wilson was interested in moving the narrative away from the French version of democracy and something more in line with the ideals of John Locke John Quincy Adams would pick up the mantle of Wilson. And we'll continue to retake the narrative of the compact after being asked to speak in Plymouth on founders day Quincy Adams lead with the importance of the compact Quincy Adams was interested in taking the compact and Lena back to the days of Anglo Saxon England as something more peer he described the Norman conquerors as being tyrants in this movie is able to connect the. Compact back to English roots hence moving away from her. So and yet at the same time he manages to avoid Lincoln it to something directly British in nature, obviously, not wanting to give them that propaganda vantage back with compact later, the Mayflower compact is going to become a core piece of the Whigs anti Jacksonian rhetoric. We're going to cover all this in depth Zo don't stress too much right now about this. I'm just trying to gloss over to give you an idea of what's going on. To sum all of this up. This answer is this. The Mayflower compact finds it's important because different factions both domestic at abroad sought to use it as a tool of propaganda. The British wanted to use the compact further own purposes to show that the original pilgrims had actually been highly loyal supporters of the crown the Americans on the other hand wanted to show that the pilgrims were something entirely different. The contact was used to argue for different types of democracy, specifically as a tool to distance the young nation from the French form of democracy that had ended up embroiling Franson revolution. And then later it was used to rally gets Jacksonian ISM in the Mayflower compact became currency in this war of propaganda throughout this process. The Mayflower compact ended up becoming much more than it actually wasn't reality. The reputation remains to this day. The Mayflower compact continues to sit in a position where it is often taught as being an early example of. Constitutionalism. That is going to come to define the United States later on the last several minutes of this podcast of basically been a sneak peek at what will make significant chunk of future seasons. So don't stress too much about following along with the different political views or the different political philosophy. This is all incredibly interesting and truth be told is the driving force. Behind wise started this podcast in the first place. We are going to spend eight ton of time talking about the political views in place right after the formation of the United States. In fact, I suspect that we are going to spend nearly an entire season discussing these topics. So if you have absolutely no clue why the Whigs are anti Jacksonian just hang with me. I promise we're going to get there today was just a situation where I wanted to introduce where the mythology of the Mayflower compact formed, and it required me to jump ahead a little bit in our story. The Mayflower compact continues to stand as one of the key political documents in United States history. In so many ways it is presented as that first shot in what would come to define New England as the revolution approached. However, the reality is that the compact it self was really something that was created to ensure some level of cooperation in the new colony and solve several of the problems that the passengers had vowed upon landing outside the patent. The compact is a testament to the cooperation of the groups that did not see eye to eye. However, the comments are viable trumped everything as an opening salvo of radicalism in New England. The Mayflower compact does fall short the legend of the document is even born into Loyd eighteenth and early nineteenth century when multiple sides attempted to seize on the compact for propaganda reasons, it is through this battle to control the narrative of what the Mayflower compact actually meant that the compact itself is going to become part of the origin story of the future United States. And that is a position that it continues to hold up to this day and will likely. Continue to hold into the future. Next time. We are going to settle down in the new Khania Plymouth and look at what those first early years brought so with that I will see you back here in two weeks time when we usher are pilgrims off of the ship and onto the shores of Plymouth until then I hope you have a fantastic two weeks. And I appreciate all you who've taken the time to tune in. And listen to this podcast. Thank you.

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode one point fifteen the Mayflower combat. Picking up from where we last left off two weeks ago, we had left our settlers hanging out as they began their journey across the Atlantic. This week we are going to pick up with our pilgrims as they make their way across the Atlantic to their new homes, we are gonna spend much of this week focusing on what is often seen as one of the first political documents formed in the North American colonies, specifically the Mayflower compact, the Mayflower compact is often portrayed as this early example of the democratic ideals that will come to find the struggles of the future United States today. I'm gonna focus on some of those early politics amongst the pilgrims. We are going to spend some time looking at the myth of the Mayflower compact and how it is portrayed today. We are going to look at the document itself. And what it did in reality. Finally, we're going to turn back to the Mayflower compact and tried to dissect where the legend surrounded it actually comes from. So then without further delay. Let's just dive right back into our story. Every single year thousands of American school children. Learn about the Mayflower typically around thanksgiving time, we'll Jamestown did proceed Plymouth buy some thirty years. It is the Mayflower that is often presented as being that inaugural trip to the new world for journey that is so central to the majority of the United States. We know shockingly little about it. In fact, most everything that we know about the journey itself comes from William Bradford's writing. And even then Bradford himself is surprisingly quiet on the journey. Ran into the conditions onboard. Bradford does make a brief mention of the combined group now aboard the Mayflower before discussing the general health aboard the ship. There is a mention this. He cygnus was a constant problem and Bradford as always takes the time to tell a charming tale of these special work of God's providence. I'm just gonna go ahead and quote Bradford directly here because frankly, he tells the story better than I ever could. And just a note, you might notice that over the next couple episodes. There is going to be a sharp. Crease in me reading quotes. This isn't really something. I plan to do long term. But when it comes to Plymouth, we are lucky enough to have two excellent primary sources we have Bradford's of Plymouth plantation, which is what I'm about to quote from. And we also have Bradford and Edward winslow's writing in more relations. So as I said don't be shocked when you start hearing an increasing number of quotes for me. I don't think this is going to be long term kind of deal. But let's use what we've got. Okay. Returning to William Bradford talking about conditions on the Mayflower. He says it was a proud and very profane. Young man, one of the seamen a lessee able body which made him all the more haunting e would always become acting on the poor people in their cygnus, cursing them daily with grievous exhortations and did not let to tell them that he hoped to help cast half of them overboard before they came to their journeys in and to make Mary with what they have. And if they were jelly reproved, he would curse and swear most. Bitterly. But it please God before they came half seas over to this young man with a grievous disease of which he died in a desperate manner. And so was himself. The first was thrown overboard, thus his curses light on his own head. And it was an astonishment to all his fellows for they noted. It it had to be the just hand of God upon him. So yeah, that's pretty uplifting story, I bring it up for a couple of reasons I it does give some insight into the state of things aboard the Mayflower. It clues us in that. There was some amount of disease on board. And that death was an actual risk. It's also a good insight into the group itself and gives a working idea of the inner thoughts of Bradford all in all gives us at least some picture of life and the tensions aboard the Mayflower beyond. Just some joyous. Talk of the ships leading jerk getting sick dine in being thrown overboard. Braford? Would also write about what you would probably expect. There's a lot of talk about the dangerous crosswinds seasick. Kness and the general misery that existed onboard Bradford routinely writes about how the settlers survived and kept going forward in the name of God. It is interesting to note that for the most part there isn't much talk about widespread, death and disease. So well, we know that at least one guy did succumb to illness. And it is probably not out of the question that the conditions on board were unless insanitary there does not really seem to be a widespread dying be on. However, there really isn't a ten that we know about the journey itself. Bradford spends only two pages reading about the Mayflower. However through him. We do get an idea of those conditions on November sixteen twenty the Mayflower encountered Cape Cod. Cape Cod was not in a no place upon its discovery. John Smith had founded and named Cape James, however, by the time pilgrim, Scott there the Cape Cod. Name was pretty much accepted. Fishermen had named the area for the large number of cod in the valuable fishing waters. Right off the coast, the journey full had taken sixty. Five days and had landed the pilgrims just in time to face a potential New England winter the first problem that the pilgrims had upon arriving is that they were in the wrong place. Now originally they had planned to set up camp closer to the mouth of the Hudson. Hosver they were a ways north of that. In fact, the settlers were moving towards the Hudson because they didn't actually hold a pattern to settle land in Cape Cod. The ship's captain Christopher Jones recognizing. This fact did attempt to make his way south to the mouth of the Hudson where they were supposed to be however would conditions of the passengers now declining dangerous and uncharted shores and uncooperative wind Jones made the call to return and settle Cape Cod to say that these settlers were upset about

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode one point thirteen medical changes. This is our seventh episode dealing with Jamestown. And I don't know about you guys. But I am ready to move on to different frontiers. The good news is that after this week. That is just what we are going to do however before we can leave Jamestown for good. We need to go back and look at the developments in the colony politically as the colony begins to rapidly grow. The political situation begins to change we see the first forms of government. Come to the colony dri. This period, we are going to discuss the reasons for this. And what it meant for Virginia's a whole following the massacre of sixteen twenty two future. The Virginia company would quickly be drawn into question and by sixteen twenty four the company would meet its ultimate int-. We are going to discuss the change from the Virginia company to the crown Connie with that means for the future of the colony and the future of English colonization. By the end of today, we will be in a position to leave Jamestown behind no longer the struggling colony that we have seen through much of these episodes. But rather a self sufficient Connie that would provide the early base of power in the English North American colonies. We have discussed previously that following the starving time. We see a period of near Marshall oughta go ver in Virginia. We talked about this. If you weeks back when we saw that these new laws have been put into place over with time. A somewhat more relaxed attitudes spread throughout the colony following the end of the first Anglo powder war things Virginia had become relatively peaceful and prosperous for the English with the college being on more stable footing, it proved to be much easier to back down from the previously. Strict rules when Samuel Argyle arrived in the colony take his turn as governor in sixteen seventeen he found that the colony head once again become neglected our goal tried to retain control and issued a new set of stricter laws now over the colonists. Quickly showed their dislike for this following a period of drought after his arrival colonists begin launching accusations at Argyll for embezzling from the stores. Not wanting to let things get out of control yet. Again, the English sent Lord Delaware back free second time, Lord, Delaware, despite all of his efforts really never found that North America agreed with him that much this. I'm however instead of remaining sickly his time in the colony Lord, Delaware, which is go ahead and die on the journey over despite these problems, However, James him was continuing to thrive during this time when captain Yardley return for his second stint, his clone you'll governor and he had been the one who had been replaced by our goal in the first place. The Connie was getting ready to enter into a period of massive growth by this point. The view of the clinic had changed Jason was no longer seen as a place that was simply there to split the local resources of Jamestown become an outpost of England located in the foreign land no longer satisfied with economic gain alone. Virginia was a foothold on the new world a springboard for the English into further endeavors and colonization. One of the problems of the Connie, however, is that his become apparent by the middle part of the sixteen teens that despite relative stability within the colony the population had begun to stagnate is sixteen sixteen there were only three hundred twenty four people living in the colony which is actually slightly down from the years before in sixteen eleven part of the problem is that while the colony had become much more stable. That's the -bility came at the expense of harsh rule from Thomas gates. This means that the stability of the colony was coming at the expense of these harsh living conditions. We have talked about the new laws in the colony and that the colony was essentially under martial law, and it's probably not too shocking that this isn't something that anybody was super excited about the colony was also at this time facing a labour crisis the injured servants who had come over back in sixteen o seven. We're now the end of their period denture. Well, not everybody. I as we move past sixteen fourteen more and more people will begin to earn their freedom. This. This poses a serious issue for the Virginia company, therefore as they are going to face crisis and making sure that people remained within the colony and in just head back to England. A secondary problem existed in the system that the English put in place in sixteen twelve to try to drive more people into the colony in the first place. If you recall in sixteen twelve by making minimum investment in the colony you could have one hundred acres of land. The problem though, is that the Virginia company didn't really have the land offer to fix this problem. The Virginia company turned Edwin send us send us had been one of the initial investors in the Virginia company, and though he would never personally come to Virginia. He always strapped to support the colony from the ground back in London. Well, go any was certainly more stable the task fell to set is to take the Connie to its next face to do this send us hope to make the population of Jamestown more self sustaining send us believe that by increasing the number of people in the colony that it would also move the Connie closer to financial security. Well, stability existed profitability was still. A serious issue for the Virginia company tobacco had become their cash crop. But maintaining the colony was still not really a profitable endeavor. Now, send us knew that the Virginia company did not have the financial ability to entice people to come to colony. Instead, what he did was offer those willing to travel to Virginia special administrative and judicial rights, send us was also actively trying to change the balance in the colony today, the colony has been overwhelmingly male under the leadership of sadness, you start to see more women make their way to the colony. Likewise, Santa's also increased the number of artisans coming over to the colony the hope was that by diversifying the colony's population. You're going to be able to draw even more settlers there. The most influential change during this time. However was the introduction of the Virginia head right system knowing that the shareholders in the company needed some kind of benefit as cash dividends weren't really in the cars at the moment sends introduced the concept of the head right in Virginia. The head rate system instead of being a dividend in cash would provide colonists with a dividend of one hundred acres of land for those who had come to the colony since sixteen sixteen at their own expense. A grant would be given a fifty acres plus an additional fifty acres for each person. They pay to come across the Atlantic as an effort to increase the holdings of the Virginia company. The decision was made that the Len given out would be unplugged separated by approximately ten miles now recall from last week. This is going to be a really big deal. When we start talking about the massacre of sixteen twenty two if you'll recall the distance between the plus is going to make the attack by shakin. Oh that much. More devastating with the growing number of land claims. The decision was also made advant the call into four boroughs.

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode one point twelve the collapse of the power didn't confederacy. We've always begin this week. I want to take a quick moment to correct the mistake that I had made last week f you very end of the last episode. I had made a comment in literally the last sentence of the episode that we were going to address the powered and Indians fighting the Virginia Indians this week. That is not what we're going to talk about. We're going to talk about the powder and tribes facing off against the Virginia settlers, not the Indian. So that was a mistake on my part. And I am very sorry for that. We have spent nearly three months in Virginia and between this episode and our next episode. We are going to get ourselves into a place where we can leave our Virginia settlers to their own devices for a while. After this week. We are going to move our story north to New England and begin our examination into the Puritans. But before we can do that we need to look at the changes in the colony as they close out the teens and move through the sixteen twenty's less weekly. So importance of tobacco at help secure the future of the colony. We talked about changes to the law them, the colony and much more th-wa tearing direction, but did help cure some of the critical problems from the early years of Jamestown. Like, we saw the importance of the peace between the English and the power to people following sixteen thirteen well, the colony enjoyed its first period of relative stability during this time. The stability is not something that's going to last forever. The Ghani is no longer in danger of failing. However that does not mean this struggles don't still exist. This is going to be exemplified by the powered in sixteen eighteen as we will discuss while powered and had pursued repulsive containment his brother opus shinkin, oh is going to take a much more aggressive stance towards the English settlers. This is going to lead us to an event that would forever change the relationship between the English and the Indians specifically the massacre of sixteen twenty two as you will see throughout today. This is going to be an event that is going to have a profound impact all McCollum moving forward as well. As for the future of the Virginia company following the massacre, the dynamics between the powder and people and the English will never return to what they want had been the powder and trips were clearly in a place of decline, whereas English were settling growing at an extraordinary rate. All of this is going to automatically lead us to the collapse of the once powerful pouting confederacy today that is the story I plan to tell and this episode is going to wrap up the portion of our story dealing with the powered and people following the end of the first Anglo powder war sixteen thirteen relations between the English and the Indians had begun to improve. It is through this piece of the English grabble to begin expanding outward and focus on growing crops such as tobacco beyond the usefulness of p. However, powered and had always taken a pragmatic view of the English poet recognized the importance of good relations with the English as they could operate as a check against his enemies, and we have discussed this as some depth already. If you recall, this is a relationship that helps explain why powder was willing to assist the English with food in the first place. However by this time, you may have noticed that powdered has been part of our story for a really long time. We started talking about him back when we discussed Roanoke from the moment of the first settlers Leonard in sixteen seven powered and have been a defining factor for the colony. It is not a coincidence that drained terrible winter of sixty nine sixteen ten Paladin had chosen not to provide the colony with food despite this over powder had never really been bent on the destruction of the English. He appears to understood the power of the English and had wanted to gain them as an ally for his own use. Pouted had yes sought to contain. However, he never thought to destroy. But as I mentioned above pounded is no longer a young, man. And in April of sixty eighteen powder was in his early seventies. After decades in power. It is time for pound into leave our story drain April of sixteen eighteen powder and dies following the powered in the confederacy came under the leadership of his brother over shank it out over shinkin was not pout in which is something that is going to become appeared in the years to cop or as pellet and had been pursuing a policy of containment over shinkin show, a staunchly against English expansion and still had hopes of driving them out of Jing entirely. If you'll recall from few weeks ago, we had discussed the possibility that ocean can was actually gone the ways the same on the ways they gave out in the advice that he should kill all the English the same down the wheezy would take place in that slaughter of the Jesse wits years before. Now, you have no idea what I'm talking about. Please go check out. Episode one point six for some more information on this.

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode. One point ten the starving time. Less time. We left off discussing those first several years of the Jamestown colony the first several years were conflated inside a majority of the new settlers die due to the harsh conditions and at the same time the relationship between the settlers and local powered and Indians was tented best and downright hostile at worst. By the new sixty-nine? The Connie was approaching what will become the single worst time in the history of the Jimmy Connie up to that date today. This period has become known as the starving time, and is going to signify the low Mark for the colony John Smith by the same had left the colony and relations with powered into becomes so bad that is John Ratcliffe skinned alive in December of sixty nine combined with the ongoing issues of survey shin disease is going to see the population of the colony plummet the stirring time very nearly marks. The end of the Jamestown colony the colonists. At one point abandoned, the colony and make their way to ships having had enough trying to survive in Virginia. Of course today, we know that they don't end up actually leaving in fact, following the speed the colony will very slowly at times, turn the corner and begin moving towards something that resembles viable settlement for today. We are going to spend our time looking at the starving time. Specifically, I wanna look at three primary aspects. I we're. Going to look at the traditional telling of the story of that winter of sixty-nine sixteen ten what were the causes? How bad did it get and how did it? Resolve second. We are going to discuss the realities of the starving time. I plan on looking at the question of how accurate is that traditional telling? And what problems may exist with it? Finally, we're going to look at the end result. The starving time is going to have a major effect on the colony in a number of ways, and we are going to examine how these changes moving. Forward are going to completely change the direction of the Regina company and the colony as a whole. I want to start this week by looking at the winter of sixty-nine sixteen ten we're going to Japan by looking at that traditional telling before doubling back looking at some of the causes in many ways is difficult to get a great idea of what occurred during that winter the sources during the timer thin, and there is something to be said about a sense of cessation. Listen that's going to creep into the eventual telling of the event on the ground. The best source is going to be the colonies acting President George Percy Percy would write about the surveys in the terrible conditions at Jamestown during that winter. I'm going to read a quote from perceives book a true relation of the proceedings and occurrences of moment, which have happened emerging from the time, sir. Thomas gates was shipwrecked Bermuda anno sixteen o nine until my departure out of the country, which was anno domini sixteen twelve and yeah, that's an awesome book title sound super exciting, quote is as follows now all of us are Jamestown began feeling that sharp prick of hunger, which no. Man, truly describe, but which he have tasted the bitterness. They're up a world of miseries and suit as the sequel will express to you in so much that some to satisfy their hunger. Have rubbed the store for which I have caused them to be executed then having fed upon the horses and other beasts long as they lasted we were glad to make shift with vermin as dogs, cats, and rats, and mice always fish that came to net to satisfy the cruel hunger. As the boot shoes or any other leather some could come by. And those being spent in devoured somewhere force to search the woods feed upon serpents and snakes and to dig the earth for wild and unknown routes where many of our men were cut off and slain by the savages and now famine beginning to ghastly impale in every face that was nothing to be spared to maintain life and to do those things which seem incredible as to dig up dead corpses out of graves into eat them and. Some have looked up the blood which have fallen from their week fellows and amongst the rest. This was the most lamentable that one of our colony murdered his wife rip the child out of her womb and threw it into the river. And after that chop the other pieces salted her for his food. The same not being discovered before he had eaten her thereof for the cruel. Inhumane fact, I judged him to be executed the knowledge of the debate enforce from him by torture having hung by his thumbs with the weight at his feet a quarter of an hour before he would confess the same. George Percy was the best source on the ground at the time. Other information we get from the events come from John Smith's writings and sixteen twenty four. And in a moment, I'm going to share this account with you. But I wanna give a pair of warnings on it. I I Jon Smith left a few months earlier in the fall of sixty nine. So he was back in England in the winter of sixty nine sixteen ten rolled. Round. Likewise. He is writing this account is sixteen twenty four a full fourteen years after the events actually took place. Now, we're gonna talk more in a few minutes about the problems with the sources, including Smith. But it's something that I wanna be front about Smith wrote in the general history of Regina New England in the summer isles that neigh so great was our famine that a savage we Slough Mberi the poor sort took him up again and ate him. And so did divers one another boiled stewed with roots and herbs and amongst the rest to kill his wife powdered her and eat him part of her before it was known for which he was executed as he will deserved now. Whether she was better roasted boiled or carbonaro, I do not know, but of such a dishes, powdered wife, I have never heard of this was that time which still to this day. We call the starving time. It were to vile to say and scarce to be believed what we endured. But the Cajun was our own for want of providence industry and government and not the Baroness and defect of the country. As is generally supposed for till then in three years for the numbers were landed us, we have never from England provision efficient for six months, though, it seemed by the Bill of lading sufficient sent us such a glut is the seat and said goodfellas the Mariners we as little tasted of great proportions cintas as they of our want miseries yet notwithstanding the ever over swayed and ruled the business though, we endured all that is said and chiefly lived on what this good country naturally. Afforded yet. Had we been even paradise itself with these governors. It would not have been much better with us yet. There was amongst us. Who had they been the government as kept Smith appointed? But that they could not maintain. It would surely have. Kept us from those extremes of misery this intend as more would have supplanted us all with death before we go any further. If you're wondering what does just myth mean when he asked was carbonaro that translates roughly into what she barbecued. So yes, that would in fact be just a little bit of cannibalism humor from our good friend John's Smith between the accounts of Smith emptied is possible to get a sense of devastation that the winter of sixty nine sixteen

"Welcome to the political history of the United States at one point seven Jamestown beginnings. Good news guys after spending the first several weeks messing around in the always intrigued world of sixteenth century Europe. It is finally time to get to the real story as much fun as we've had bouncing around through the political economic and religious changes Europe. We are finally ready to begin looking at the first group of English settlers to cross the Atlantic and settle in Jamestown before we get into that. However, I wanna give a rundown of what the foreseeable future the podcast is going to look like the popular story of the United States is that of a ragtag bunch of colonies that join together to fight the mighty British army. However, that is something that doesn't really exist right away. The first colony should be seen as more of a collection of independent knows acting separately from each other. In order to approach this. I plan to work through the colonies one by one looking at the unique factors each specific group making their way to America. I think dressing the major colonies one at a time is going to be the most effective way for me to move through the rest of the season. The general plan is to move through each colony and get it up to read around sixteen fifty before moving onto the next after moving through the colonies, I will have a few episodes to tie everything together and address a few other subjects that I wanna hit that is going to basically take us to the end of the first season. Now with all that said we are going to begin this week with the first of several episodes looking at that first colony founded in sixteen seven Jamestown would become the first permanent English colony in the Americas. For thirteen years Jamestown stood alone as the only English settlement in America before the Puritans. Join them with their settlement in Plymouth. The founding of Jamestown is a story of failure. Misery death starvation or an ultimately after facing cataclysm after cataclysm a moderate amount of success. The story of Jamestown is one that will see the con- you become the largest tobacco export or in Europe. But only after surviving disease and war with the Indians and starving that became so severe that. The people were forced to turn to cannibalism. These are just a few of the things that we are going to explore over the next several episodes and today, we are going to begin the lane the groundwork for all of that. Everybody in the United States is taught that the pilgrims. Spoiler alert, by the way travel across the Atlantic to the Americas to avoid religious persecution in many ways, this is held up as a banner establishing the freedoms that would become synonymous with the future. United states. The decision to go to James is fueled by the single most common denominator in all of colonization the hope of funding riches. To begin this week. I want to look at the reasons why people suddenly found themselves boarding ships in heading across the Atlantic. What were their motivations? What were they looking for by looking at what motivated the first settlers to good Virginia is going to tell us a lot about the colony and its future. And this is going to be something we keep coming back to future episodes as we move through the history of James ten in Virginia as a whole today when people look back on the history of the United States. There seems to be a tendency to focus more on the pilgrims, the founders of Plymouth, then there are the founders of Jamestown. In fact, there seems to be among many, a general belief that the pilgrims came across on the Mayflower were the first to settle the future United States, and yet Lino that not to be true for Gina had been settled more than a decade before and affect by sixteen twenty was well on its way towards stability. The question therefore becomes why is Jamestown often forgotten when we look at the establishment of the English colonies in North America. That is one of the questions we are going to be looking at over the next several weeks as we explore Jamestown. What makes the Jamestown settlers different than the New England settlers? To begin this week. I wanna start to look at the conditions under which Jamestown was founded. And who the settlers were last week we discussed English attempts to colonize North America at the Roanoke Connie, well that colony mysteriously disappeared. Also, marked the end of English colonization efforts up until sixteen o seven or the failure of the Roanoke. Colony may have had some minimal effect on the future colonization of North America. The real issue was going to be ongoing English Spanish war the war between England Spain had been a pretty good job of depleting English treasury. However would James the first now empower he quickly brought an into the war with the Spanish through the treaty of London. This means that the funds needed to launch a colonization effort were at last available following the end of the war. There was also a new reality for the English came two privateer. If you recall from episode one point three privateer in was tantamount to state sponsored piracy this become a big deal in the sixteenth century as Spanish. Out to such a huge lead in establishing thriving and more importantly profitable colonies in the Americas. Less time we talked about the devastating effect that privateer in had on the Spanish the easier solution for European powers that were not the Spanish Portuguese listed, turn towards private teary. Instead of forming your own colonies you'd instead attacked the Spanish ships still their goods and sell them as your own backing Europe, the English had just finished up a war with Spain and knew the continued use of private jeering was likely to lead to another war. So specifically in the treaty of lended, what of the requirements from Spain wasn't agreement that England would back off of their privateer practices, at least to get the Spanish be effective. Inappropriate against the Spanish merchants did not reduce however English interest in the potential profit and the items to be found in the Americas. The logical solution therefore was for the. English to auntie colonization effort of their own. As mentioned above with the war over there was a sensor plus a funds in England. This is not to mention that with the war over. There was now the manpower necessary for colonization efforts to be made the end of the were also means that the English had the ability to branch out keep in mind that one of the consequences of the first Benesch armada was that it prevented the English efforts to resupply. Their colony in Roanoke with the war over. However, this concern has been completely mitigated. Economically desire to colonize. The Americas will grow quickly in the years following the end of the war. Shortly. After the end of the war, you begin to see the first joint stock companies for the specific purpose of colonizing, the Americas for these companies are going to spring up with the stated intent of going to the Americas fighting the abundant natural resources and sending them back to England hopefully for profit. Colonisation was inexpensive undertaking to say, the least, and this is going to help lead to the rise of these joint stock companies, it joint-stock company is simply a type of corporation were several investors come together pool their money in order to fund expedition, this has obvious advantages over a single or otherwise small group of investors. It was really expensive to start a colony, and it's always gonna be a long term game. While obviously everybody hope that the new Connie would be founded by the city of gold and conquer the natives all within a couple of weeks. The investors know that this is not a realistic expectation. And beyond that, it was not a huge secret that establishing colonies was a task that came with considerable risk the English investors at a minimum would have been aware of earlier colonization efforts at Roanoke, and what happened there investors would have likely. Understood the profit was going to be slow in coming and knew they should not expect a quick return with this mind. The emergence of the joint stock company makes sense. A joint-stock company is made up of a large group of investors, which means that the risk is going to be more spread out the advantage for the colony is that by having more investors. There is going to be far greater source of resources available which in turn gives the Connie a better chance serving. For the individual investor. There was some real risk involved colonies had been lost previously. And there was no promise of these colonies would survive. However, the hope was that this could be a long term investment. And that if the Connie disavow live, there would be a significant amount of profit on the other side in sixteen six King James issued a Royal charter for the formation of two joint stock companies. These companies were the north Virginia company of London and these south Virginia company of London. The companies were giving a man to make habitation into that part of America, commonly called Virginia.
