AG Merrick Garland Saying What Vladimir Putin Wants Him to Say
"To an unclassified summary of the March intelligence assessment, the two most lethal elements of the domestic violence extremist threat. Are racially or ethnically motivated, violent extremists and militia violent extremists. In the FBI's view, the top domestic violent extremist threat comes from racially or ethnically motivated, violent extremists, specifically those who advocated for the superiority of the white race. That's the top domestic threat. White supremacists. Is it a threat? Absolutely. That's the top threat. Not Chinese propaganda and infiltrating our universities. Not homegrown terrorists with Al Qaeda or radical of Islamism. Ideology is not to that. Now that's not the top threat. The top threat is a mass outbreak of white supremacist groups around the nation. Do you have any evidence? Actually back that up? You don't find it odd the same thing.

If you think about it that we humans have it involves many parts of the brain and the study of language spans across many different disciplines. So bilingual's studied in at least three different fields linguistics psychology and cognitive neuroscience. Sarah phillips is a phd student in the linguistics department at new york university. And exactly the person. I wanted to call up to talk about language learning who. Yeah i remember sarah from our episode on six hundred like how the brain responds to sentences with confusing grammar or syntax. Yeah brains and language are hurt.

Shima Baradaran Baughman of the University of Utah on the Police Myth
"The movement for black lives as forces societal reckoning about the relationship between police and disaffected communities and has given tracks into removing police funding nationwide. The literature is focused on critiquing the mistrust of police among communities of color due to abuse and marginalization with remedies including police training to encourage treating people with dignity policing literature fails to fully address a core 'cause police mistrust for people of color in the poor to address. The symptoms of policing failure requires consideration of the purpose of function police. Indeed a core problem is a misunderstanding of policing. That i call the police. The police myth is a twofold belief that our primary function of police crime control and that police all crimes. Regularity reliance on the police. Smith may provide societal comfort but as made it difficult to address basic policing failure without understanding. What police actually do and their relationship with crime is impossible to reimagine policing the police crime in large part contribute to the distrust between police and community color creating a cycle where people refused to report to police and police fail to solve crimes. American policing costs hundred fifteen billion per year. It is worth evaluating. This number in terms of the public service received as solving serious crimes only constitutes a tiny fraction of police function. my research demonstrates that police only solve serious felony crimes about twenty percent of the time while the police defunding movement is gaining support. Critics claim that is highly impractical and that reducing policing would increase crime but if police are neither allocating a large portion of their time to addressing crime nor solving most major crimes would defunding police actually increase crime. If this is the moment to consider police reform a meaningful dismantling of the police myth could be part of the solution

We call it is a community in western sense have already started to provide services, for example, you can order somebody to come and give you a haircut and then to order somebody to buy some vegetables for year, and then you have a place offense or we used to have chef Enzo to describe for the kindergarten kids. Right. It's like the neighborhood provide a canteen likes of interest for kiss used to be. But now this idea has been traduced to serve the elderly. It's not just that they go to eat something, they go to meet friends. So that is a very good example that we can do more to promote community culture to bring people together. So that they don't need to go and rent any son and daughter to come back to see them. But this is a. Generational issue. I must say the idea renting someone right? First thing, I the idea is wrong. The idea is that money can make the Marigot right all about nicotine's money. Secondly, I think it has also to do with how to resolve this very emotional crisis. For example, love and how do young people nowadays pursue this very love relationship. This generation as I observed tend to be very independently cold very self reliant in both the negative and those positive sense. And so must be room for intervention in Britain.

"Mental to a healthy society. I mean, marijuana a drug will be recreational. It is dog it is a joint killing Chinese say job in long ride. I mean, resulting death in the family and also I mean, bankruptcy of family and personal financing. And so in this sense, it should be banned. It should be carefully and delicately controlled in this, very particular sense. And I think the two different markets in the US small government big markets, China, big governments and big markets. But then big government steps in more responsible responsibility. And so I applaud the Chinese government efforts in controlling and in cracking down on any use of these kind of drug talking about the business seeking profit. Actually, I have a very good example before New York state lose his marijuana restrictions madman. The company selling the product can't wait to open a medical marijuana start on the Fifth Avenue, ima Hatton. Famous. Upscale district design is different from the smoke failed marijuana shops. One might expect the designs the fresh and classy even looks a bit like apple store. So do think companies shoud have some restrictions from the government. And at least have a sense of social responsibility on this is always a delicate balance that we need to strike in between Lord corporations, which are profit-driven though. So big governments responsible governments thinking in the interest of the general public, right? The people in so I would strongly emphasize the importance of the so-called corporate social responsibility as large corporation twain to promote that I mean, no matter how fencing look on Fifth Avenue, you have to be socially responsible. You have to be a socially aware of the very harmful effects of it. And besides I think that affordability is also a problem of ability. Not all people can afford it. And so in the sense that this is a very highly elitist movement right now, and this vicious cycle. I can see the site, for example, the super rich I want to make the money by producing these products. And then after I earn a lot of money, and I'm going to use part of the chunk of this profit on charity, but come on you have already destroyed some of the people's lives, and then you decided to spend money to save them. This is a bad psycho conto, we just stop it from the beginning. This is not a good thing to do. Just don't use your own future and house to test. Something that's controversial.

"You have to depend self discipline. And then self choices, right? And how strong a will you have. And then the legislature. Oh, the counter set of force. If it's not there to check you then once life could be leading to its own destruction because it is different. Some people said even less addictive compared to tobacco and alcohol, but it's not the same tobacco and alcohol, maybe harms your lung and your heart when you consume, but this one wants addicted in all the drunk. It destroys your nerve system, and it has a series, really bad, psychological attack on you. We Chinese people. I think we learned a hard lesson because of the opium war Opiant almost destroyed the whole country's spirit. How about you? Professor turn you of professor in university. Do you believe your students if these things happened in China? It's very very risky. I think it's also like mulling said, it was sent his very ripple effects and once that very ripple effect. It's felt students will fall victim to this very particular trend, and so I would sound a die warning in terms of the use of marijuana or recreational stuff on our campus. And once again, China has very bad memory of this, very opium thing. Right. And that's supposed to be so very detrimental actually almost ruined down civilization in that sense. But then in the US is quite different story. I mean, drug use has been so widespread on US campus, and right now, for example, Cording to survey LS, the most dangerous killing a drug is so very widespread out in the US or like cracks the or many of these designer drugs, and they're extremely dangerous to a society, especially. You to this particular group, the young people and sometimes as I'm told that the trend even extends down to primary school at basically middle school students are detrimental exposed to this kind of drug. And so it's time we think about this the anti spacious of the major in the state university of New York follows governor Kumo call to legalize drug. He sat a weeks ago is time to legalize marijuana went Santa for all during a speech previewing, his major policy initiatives for two thousand nine tank, and according to some experts in United States, they expected that by two thousand twenty two Allstate's United States well have implemented either a medical only or fully legal marijuana market and about eight days have already legalized recreational use of marijuana as professor Thome Milly are the west coast stays like Washington state, Oregon and California. Of course, we know Canada. Also starting October last year, the canopy ACTA has gone into fact and legalized recreational marijuana use in the country the legal kind of industries growing at 'em president hitt pace in North America. But what makes the movements all the cry of supporting the legalisation of recreation use of cannabis are so powerful in the region. Very powerful campaign. The started back in the nineteen sixties actually help to facilitate the growth of very movement and at the same time, we all know that the baby boomer generation war name between nineteen forty two to nineteen sixty four. And these people are now, we're actually very backbone, very, I would say the main stay of US and Canadian society richest that they are actually the most powerful and look at the presidency look at the US congress. I mean, political light being controlled by this very baby room. Generation. But also the rise this very middle class who are now actually have disposal income very open liberal to ideas on practices such as drug. Use of isn't. It is a huge demand. I would call it because capitalist country we call it's always divided by the market, many supply demand in consumption people want to use it, and then seeking profit plus the existing rampant illegal use of it. Because it's like a prostitution. There's argument over there. If you put these things underground they are existing, but why cannot we just legalize them? So that we can control them, right? It's always about management demand. Siders Munnings that is so very important within this very capitalistic market economy. Since of the listen, right?

"Academic study or a breach of the moral bottom lines today. Lest art our show with the questions on professionalized a growing and selling marijuana in United States. So professor Thome. A what is the purpose of the program from the university's points of view. According to this news report is said to aid students in agricultural, right whose majors for example, is haughty cultural. And in this sense. I think that helps students to dive. Versa. Fi. They are disciplined or knowledge and creativity perhaps in this particular sense. But I wanted to reiterate at this point is that marijuana and also drug use drug study into United States in North America in general began not just in this very century dates back to the last century. The sixties actually reached its height in terms of drug use and drug study and research in this very area. One famous professor by the name of Timothy Leary based at Harvard University. In fact, started this whole thing, but then it has historical context at the time and mitch's quite different from what they're doing right now. How about your mailing? When is the about the purpose in terms of job creation and employment. I think they have vision. It's kind of university should be in the front to smell opportunities. Right because it's all about money. It has been there for a long time. And I think it's about the mass production. And mass use it's a worry because in the past either in China, I think in every country Amena why now or cannabis or this. They have been used in China. It's illegal but medicinal uses allowed to relieve the pain for the patients, so it has been there. And now we are facing it's going to be maybe completely legalized and going to lead to mass produce. That's why is a very strong demand for talents other to grow it or two processes. And so to me major concern is mass use and mass producing is it morally correct, or is it going to produce unwanted result? And a we saw movement and also the cry of supporting the legalization of recreational use not only medical use of marijuana. So are we seeing the approaching legalized cannabis act in United States professor ton? Absolutely think the legalization has. Been materialized in the west coast in for example, in California in state, Washington ZOA in that sense legalization is no problem. But then once again, I should to worries the mulling mentioned widespread use of drug could cause certain socio political and even economic issues, which that the United States should deal with. But then I think that as a university, I think they should catered to this very mounting needs. For example, with the white spread us or the white spread presence of marijuana in the US society. It does create opportunities and especially employment opportunities as well as created for protein ities. And so in this sense, universities has the responsibility to provide. But then once again as the news reported said that marijuana it's something should be seriously dote with I can see the trend. Definitely is there. And maybe. A complete legalisation in that country, particularly, but I don't think it's going to happen. Very soon for the rest of the world because his UN set of unified stance on it. It's considered lodge illegal. But the problem is that it's a worrisome trend because the United States is the influential country, right? If legalization there nobody can make sure that it's not going to spread and slack a ripple effect is going to affect other countries. Now, I think China and other countries who banned this kind of thing already warned its citizens to be careful. So there are a lot of issues coming you just cannot say, hey, I'm going to do this legalisation without really considering. What's happening? Yeah. The other countries talk back to the university's points of view. And do you believe all the students have the southeast point to Justice study and grow it and not try it? This is this is a very good question to raise..

I think I'm gonna yank this one out I told you, but we'll get maybe Ruth Ginsburg tomorrow Ruth Ginsburg is no longer supreme court. Judging not in any traditional sense fact for the first time in the history of our nation. The first time in history of the supreme court the very first time she's not there to hear arguments yet. She's still Justice. Do you know why? Well, they're not gonna impeach her. A lot. People are looking at their watches thinking she's doing short time. But the the the reason she's not there. She's sick. She's very sick. So she's just a sing from home. That's unheard of. And it's not the way it's supposed to work. Does not spell it out in the constitution. But you're supposed to be there. In fact, if I. If I had a case before the supreme court now, I would appeal to the supreme court. I know you can't. But hear me out that I'm supposed to have these justices here that are in charge. I know from time to time there's one missing when the two point another one or whatever. But if there's a a living Justice there's supposed to be there. So I feel like I'm being cheated. I'm not getting my day in supreme court. No because one of the justices is holding onto that position. Simply so Trump can't appoint another Justice. Now, even if Trump were to say if she were to say, I'm out it's gonna take a while for Trump to get another Justice, and I get it.

You're going to see something else for the first time this nation. Now, I'm not going there yet. Maybe we'll talk about that tomorrow. I picked this. This piece up off of the college fix dot com. As you know, I follow this website regularly. And the reason I do. Because it's a reflection of our American universities, and what are our American universities reflection of how screwed up our country is one hundred percent American University. That's that would be the college named American University. The university named American University is hosting a seminar next month to teach faculty how to assess writing without judging. It's quality just let that first sentence roller on your brain. We're talking college, and you may have a writing assignment as a student, but the instructor the professor the person with the corduroy jacket with dissuade lapels wearing Brown shoes. The Blue Sox has to figure out as to figure out how great it without well without judging. It's quality the writing in the seminars own worst grading ain't just grading. Do you sense where this is going to you know, why this is going to school? We'll we'll get to it. So by somebody number sow, you know, university of Washington Tacoma, professor now I can't pronounce that name. It's spelled A S A L first name and last name is, you know, I n o u e I would I would guess I had to guess he's I don't know. And the purpose is to pursue. Antiracist through reading assessments antiracist stance. In other words, and I'm going to jump right to the chase here. Or to the we'll go through some more. But he's trying to set up a scenario whereby because black people get into college and a huge percentage of can't speak English properly. Because they've learned ghetto speak, and because they've been it's been condoned throughout all of their elementary middle and high school, and because it's affirmed in the home Bill Cosby told us this before he was busted for dragging chicks at parties. And I got in trouble for Santa Cruz split. Correct. But a lot of black people cannot speak proper English when they get to college. They have to make excuses because if they didn't they wouldn't pass that it'd be your racist because he held that person back there black. No, we held that person because they never learned to speak English and many people going to college both black and white. They can't read anything other than about an eighth grade education.

She expressed a lot of interest in terms of like Russian and American agreements in terms of trade and what tariffs would do.

The so there are some clear analogies to other sleeper agents and such that we've seen, including the the ten, Russian illegals that that you referred you. But there are some clear distinctions as well. I refer to Maria and that concept is ramped up or even a speed dating version of insertion into the United States. And by that, I mean, it stands in stark contrast to the ten year, slow methodical operation at the FBI wrapped up back in two thousand ten where the goal was simply to immerse yourself in US society with the hope of some day, getting access and influence up at take your time, have children by property, go to school in the case of Maria Bettina. What we're seeing is a much more of opportunistic situation with a direct specific targeting of the Washington DC community. The campaign, the focus on the NRA, the focus on aiding the geo. Appea- candidates a much more efficient and effective way of doing something fast. And quite frankly, is probably Vladimir Putin's response to what he viewed as a failure of the ten, Russian illegals getting getting really owned by the FBI for ten full years. He's he's probably cast that aside for now and gone with a much faster more targeted laser focus on what he needs done. So if the allegations are true in t really was a Russian agent, what would be sort of the long term goal of hers? Frank. I mean, can you kind of play that out for us? I mean, if refer mission was absolutely successful, what would she accomplish? What would she? What would she have accomplished?.
