Sebastian Asks Rep. Claudia Tenney 'Are We Winning?'

"Welcome back to one on one with none other than congresswoman Claudia tenney. Claudia. Let me blow your trumpet politely. When you came in into the studio earlier today, you know, we get politicians in the studio. You know, the good guys and good girls come in here. And the remarkable thing about them, especially in your cases, you come in, I say, would you like a coffee would like anything last? And then I got out of the studio to get you a bottle of water. And I'm looking everywhere in the green room. Where's her retinue? Where's her entourage? Is a member of Congress. Where are the Strata? Where are the PR people? And there's nobody. So this just reinforces for me why you're the best example of what we need in America, not career politicians, like Nancy like charcot who have been around for decades, but people who see themselves as Americans representing their fellow Americans, I'm going to ask you the question I asked all of the good guys and gals. Are we winning? Is that side? Is it burgeoning? Is it growing? You know, the freedom caucus the people who don't want to say this way. I went to the members dining room to have lunch with a couple of supreme caucus people. And I asked them, is it as bad on the inside as I think it is from the outside? And one of them said, you know, the trouble is even in the GOP, 30, 40% of us, they just want the job. They want the chairmanship with the chauffeur driven limo and they want the office with the fireplace. You do not represent that to me. So who's winning? Who's in the driving seat? What's the power relationship between The Old Guard and the citizen politicians like you? You know, it's a tough crowd. I'll tell you it's a funny story. Look at I had to fight against the establishment in both parties just to get elected to the state assembly. I had to defeat the county chairman. Wow. And so they were all working against me. And they always have. I never got endorsed by our local party. The Republican Party, running for office ever until after I was elected to Congress. So you won without any endorsement. No, I had to run a primary had to put my own team together, so I know what it's like to be, you know, I'm also a lawyer or a business owner. I know what it's like to, but I'm trying to do, I'm trying to stand for our country and stand for our small business community and what we need to do. I don't see myself as part of a group or other than I want to represent my constituents. I'll tell you funny stories. When I first got into the state assembly, I remember this old time assembly member who had here I am coming from the private sector. I don't know what pensions are. I don't know any of this stuff. And you know, I'm all worried. I could care less if I, you know, use a folding chair and have a folding table. I mean, it doesn't really matter any of that stuff. And so this one person came up and said, oh, I can't believe, you know, we were minority members, Republicans, and the Democrats were in the majority, and they said, did you see the Democrats got all new mahogany deaths to new computers? And we should have mahogany desk. I'm like, no, you shouldn't have a haggy desk. We don't need that stuff. We need to govern. We need to understand the taxpayers. And I love the Jeffersonian idea. I mean, we are not supposed to be doing these jobs forever, which is why one of my first bills when I got into the assembly was, let's take all the politicians who are elected and appointed off of the pension system and put them in a 401k case to system because if you're going to serve and you want to you shouldn't have to leave and not be able to at least contribute to your own retirement, because I was really these non contributory pensions and then and of course that was not met with much approval. An old friend of mine, Mike Fitzpatrick, Fitzpatrick and the assembly. He was part of it, too. You know, what are we doing? How are we in a position where we're benefiting from something we're

Conservative Talk Show Host Carl Jackson on the Moment God Stole His Heart

"Carl Jackson, you telling us your story. All right, so you met this guy, Jim and gilakis and so he says to you, he's like, you know, a lot of Christians at churches like faith assembly of God because those are the kind of churches I go to. You know, they'd be like, hey, brother, I love you. And if you're new to that, you're like, what? You love me. No, I don't. So yeah, so it kind of put you off a little bit. So what happened? Yeah, it put me off a little bit initially. And then honestly, probably within a moment or so, I just broke, I wept like a baby. No one had ever said, no man had ever said to me, I love you. And here it is, this white guy telling me Carl, I love you. And it was just the guy was just so nice. I mean, to this day, it's just such a kind hearted guy. And then when he took me back to introduce me to other staff members that I was going to be working with, he didn't tell anyone that I was there to serve community service. He just said, hey, here's a guy that's going to be volunteering his time to help out. Show him the ropes. Show him what he needs to do. He told he told me that I would just report to him that no one needed to know. You know, why I was there and honestly, that blew me away because Eric, I was so ashamed, I knew that. The lifestyle that I was living like I said, one foot in the church one foot out. I knew better. And the Shane was just unbelievable. And that moment, I would say that was the moment that I say God just reached down any completely just stole my heart. And I was radically changed from that moment

And you're gonna get the chance to see that space launch system and orion capsule just rolling out of this building with the massive crawler and the massive launcher and just getting everybody to wave it away for for one final time. Even though it's going to visit again. I think it's going to be a very accelerating opportunity to be. A part of. I cannot wait to be a part of it. And you kinda get to see your masterpiece. Or some i say to your little kid. Finally go off into college into into experiencing the new world. A lot of hard work is the key preparation into getting to the launch. We've almost had a decade of work in pre planning design development testing evaluation and certification of all of our different components. So if you're just joining us in our journey. I think you kinda got here to the best point of it all because we're at that final phase where we're kind of putting everything together and we'll be rolling it up in nineteen sixty nine three astronauts journey to the moon without the help of a lot of the technology we rely on. Today it took over four hundred thousand people working behind the scenes to get those astronauts into space and safely on the moon now over fifty years later. We are taking everything. We've learned about space physics and are amazing leaps in technology to bring humanity back to the moon and further into space. And just like before. It's going to take another incredible group of hardworking people to usher humanity into the next era.

"For me who. I've been doing this job for for a couple of years already. You get the chance to see everything at a completely different scale. So it's like you all of a sudden become a mini figure and you're living in lego world and lego environment. All of these pieces around you as they get assembled to launch into space as you might imagine putting a rocket together in just the right order with just. The right pieces can time the first equipments The first major equipments. I guess which we would call the solid rocket boosters the the white tanks that are on the side of the vehicle itself they were received. Oh my i think it was late. Or mit last year. It's been a year since we started sacking in preparing these rockets these vehicles and that doesn't include the preparation that went beforehand on the actual additional elements that are already had the kennedy space center in preparation. It's very impressive to see the amount of work that goes behind the scene into getting these rockets done and ready for launch. And it's something that a lot of people maybe not necessarily see because they kind of just see the end product another vital aspect of rocket. Assembly is testing. The pieces of this rocket are huge and the power they omit is enormous. So it's important to make sure they're all working together the way we want them to sharon's teammate. Marshall has done a lot of this important work on their portions of the rocket before it gets sent off for assembly. There's been a tremendous test effort to build this rocket. It's been everything from testing the very smallest components up to the system like the engines have their own test. The boosters have had their test we just recently back in the spring had an incredible test that tested all four of the rs twenty five engines and the fuel tank that supplies the liquid oxygen and hydrogen to those engines. The fuel tanks make up. What's called the core stage of the rocket this core stage all the liquid hydrogen and oxygen. That will feed the rockets four engines. So they strapped this entire core stage down to the grinnell with enormous fixtures to keep it from flying leg they ran an eight-minute test on all four those engines and indeed the field. This test was also known as the green run test. The term green refers to the new hardware that will work together simultaneously for the first time so it was an incredible test. You could feel the ground shake and it was just. It was so exciting to see what that was going to be like when we launched this rocket so it was. It was everything except the solid rocket boosters that we tested in that test making sure the engines work seems pretty straightforward. But when you're working with such massive technology and overwhelming forces. There are a lot of other more hidden factors to keep in mind when those injuries roar. There's a lot of sound that's generated by that. So we need to make sure that we don't do any damage to.

"That we're really looking forward to an agency. Another one of the exciting things about the arguments mission is that it'll be the first time that a female has landed on the new. It's going to be really exciting. Can you imagine being the first woman to step on the moon. I think it'll be an exciting time through all those watching and for those young girls to see what they can also look forward to their future. There are a lot of moving pieces both literally and figuratively that it takes to get humans into space and the vehicles in the space. Launch system are really important part of that equation so the artist program has multiple components to it it has both the rocket and the crew capsule orion that will be sending humans into space. The rocket itself consists of multiple engines and boosters that will propel it off the launch pad and into the atmosphere. The first flight in twenty twenty one will make its way to the moon without any people on it for the first arguments mission. It'll take us about three to four days to get from launch to get the crew capsule into position and to do an orbital maneuver around the moon after that's complete they'll return back to the earth and we'll be looking for things like the reentry and how well those systems perform and so we do. A lot of test will have a lot of sensors on that first flight. Getting ready for the next flight that will have the crew on it. T- members from nasa centers across the country have been working on preparing this rocket at the same time. Sharon's team has been working out of marshall space flight center in huntsville alabama. The launch itself will take place at kennedy space center in florida. We're nasr's biggest missions usually come together and take off. My name is at the l. Alexander santos galindo and i may ground integration engineer for the exploration ground systems for graham at kennedy space center. Artists itself is the sister of apollo. Hence the the name. The apollo program had the opportunity of sending humans to the moon. But we really stayed there and so we said to ourselves that we definitely need to go back but this time we have to go back and we have to stay because as humans we kind of have this nature and this interest of just exploring and so having the opportunity to go back to the moon and kind of understand how to live and work there gives us the opportunity to then eventually explore the other locations such as mars and beyond as a multi planetary species in a sense. You need a lot of lift. Power to fulfill these dreams of interplanetary travel the ss rocket has to be groundbreaking in both its size and force in order to lift itself off the ground again. This is sharon cobb. This is an enormous rocket the space launch system. When it is built an integrated will be three hundred and twenty two feet tall. That's taller than the statue of liberty. So it's going to be a massive rocket in it has incredible power like we've never seen one of the neat things about the space. Launch system is the fact that it will allow us to carry more cargo in morse applause to the moon than anything else. That's currently in existence. If you can imagine that you're going to be going on a very long journey. There's a lot of things you have to take with you. And so this rocket has more lift capability and more power than any other rocket that is currently being billed. It's just going to give us a capability that will be able to help us explore for many years to come scientist. Robert goddard flew the first rocket almost one hundred years ago in nineteen twenty six. That rocket didn't go very far. Only about twelve point five meters into the air but it paved the way for more experimentation. It wasn't until the space race in the nineteen fifties and sixties that rockets and some of the first objects and people into space. This was a time when computers weren't what we think of today. In fact the term nasa computer often referred to people who were doing complicated math by hand. Each person played a specific and important role in getting the first humans into space and onto the moon spaceflight. Technology has come leaps and bounds since then and with all that development over time scientists working on the space launch system. Didn't have to start entirely from scratch building. This rocket was an opportunity to build on the foundation of the space shuttle program. We had a lot of really capable equipment that we use on the space shuttle program the engines the boosters the solid rocket boosters that we flew those were all very capable pieces of equipment that we could reuse but there were also some other pieces of equipment that needed to have more capability and that was our first step was to try to mary. All those really critical components of the rocket together and design the new ones that we had to and then get those into production so that we could test them at the end of the day. We are a government agency. So we want to make sure that everybody is participating on america's rocket op de l. And his team at kennedy are in the process of taking all the parts of the rockets and assembling them into one huge machine. The parts of come from all across the country with different teams designing and building. Different pieces teams across nasa are equipped to not only with different specialists to create these parts. They also have different facilities to make and test them but the physical space. You need to compile. The whole rocket is only found in one. Place down at kennedy. There's a huge building called the vehicle assembly building or v. a. b. so the vehicle assembly building was built during the apollo program. So back in the sixties maybe a little bit earlier than that every vehicle that nasa has made pretty much from the apollo era forward. So we're talking about the saturn five the one that took astronauts to the moon the space shuttle that they'd over one hundred missions and build our international space station and now the sos rocket or the space launch system. Have all been assembled there. It's a it's a really really really big building. it is a fascinating piece of landmark. I tend to call it the cathedral of space exploration. It's this massive facility. That has all the capabilities to kind of put together a rocket like a big lego piece. That's kind of the cool part of the job and then test out some of the equipment and roll it out to the pad. The fee covers eight acres of land and stands at five hundred twenty five feet tall. There's an american flag painted on the outside. That is two hundred nine feet tall and one hundred ten feet wide. Each star in the flag is six feet across for me. It has been the most amazing thing that you get to see at nasa. Even as you're driving their has a pretty flat state so when you're driving over to kennedy space center you really don't see a lot of things other than just wilderness and all of the natural environments that are surrounding the space center. But you do get to see this. One teeny small little building on the far horizon. That's like a white building you can kind of discern a little logo on it and as you get closer and closer to it you see how john enormous this vehicle assembly building is so when you walk in there you kind of lose perspective of how big things are in the size of everything i mean. Even.

"In Belarus outrage over those rig presidential elections in August I mentioned, they show signs of letting up. And the poison politician Alexei navalny one of the leaders of Russia's opposition movement is slowly recovering in a German hospital poisoning enemies, fraudulent elections and protests all-too-familiar too familiar for my next guest. Vladimir. Kara Mercer like Nevada. He's also a prominent Russian opposition leader. He's vice president of the free Russia Foundation and also like no Vanni he too has been poisoned in what's thought to be politically motivated attacks. Vladimir Karamursel thanks for being with US thanks for having me back. Barker's could be back on your program and finally some good news at a long time as shake is now willing his way to recovery. Thank God right. We've seen the images that navalny is slowly recovering from that poisoning and seems to be looking better one day at a time. When you see those images, Ladimir Nevada trying to restart his life what comes to mind how do you react? Well I. must say that I've been living sort of horrendous groundhog day for the last more month now since the news first game that he was poisoned after he collapsed and up playing from Tom's to Moscow at the end of August off had to live through this. Twice and bought from everything else. It is very painful excruciating experience. When you can't breathe you organs fail on after another when you just feel the life slowly coming out of your body and so yes, everything looks very familiar unfortunately but also you know in a good way of course, I went both times I was poisoned doctors told my wife that had about a five percent chance to live I made it and Alexei thankfully has made it and I know is going to be a long and difficult road recovery ahead I mean I I. Had to walk again after the first poisoning you'll body really does give off really quickly once you're in a coma so it's it's not GonNa be quick or easy, but it is possible and he will get back. You will be back to good health. He will be back in Russia and he'll be back to his important work of standing up to the corruption and dictatorship Vladimir Putin. Is there any doubt in your mind that this poisoning was in fact directed by the Kremlin? No of course, not I mean look there's a long growing list of political opposition leaders independent journalists anti corruption campaign is in the like who have suffered this fate in the last two decades. This method actually goes back to Soviet times since Putin came to power twenty years ago this method has really proliferated. were. You surprised to hear that navalny intensive go back to Russia as soon as he can. No you know what I was surprised about is the fact that it actually made news I got quite a few phone calls from journalists the day that this was announced asking for my reaction and I said, frank don't understand what the news this year. Of course he was always going to go back. He's a Russian politician. You can't be a molestation and not be in the country I went back home to Russia as. Soon, as I was literally able to walk after I recovered from the poisoning I also did medical rehabilitation abroad but I went back as soon as I could look would be too much of a gift to the Kremlin enter the Putin regime. If we just gave up and ran, this is what they want us to do. Well, we're not GONNA do it. You know we care about our country care about the future of our country within countries that was better than to live in a twenty-first-century under corrupt and authoritarian system. I'm speaking with Russian opposition leader Vladimir Kara Myrza. Let me ask you about sanctions. Talks of new German and ease sanctions against Russian officials in response to the Nevada poisoning and other political repression you were in Germany Vladimir, recently lobbying for new sanctions. What were you asking Germans to do? So one of the first questions that people in the European Union were asking, what what should the reaction be? What should the response be Mike on Center that and I know the answer for many of my colleagues and friends and the Russian opposition was the same. Mind Boggling to this, there is still no magnitsky act in the European Union, you know there is one in the United States that has been now for the best part of a decade of course, magnitsky. Act is a law that provides full targeted personal sanctions against Florida government officials not just in Russia. But I knew who else who personally complicit in human rights abuses in their own countries and corruption in their own countries of course, the brilliance of this mechanism is that it is directed individuals you're not sanctioning or punishing entire nations for the actions of a few crooks and criminals at it. Is Astonishing that to this day. There is no such mechanism in European Union. Thankfully, that is now changing two weeks ago as you mentioned, I had the honour of joining members of the German Bundestag in Berlin for the announcement of the introduction of a German magnitsky law, all draft law into the German parliament and just a few days ago or Salah Funder Line who's the leader of the European? Union made a similar announcement during her annual State of the Union address. This House has called many times for European magnitsky act and I can announce that we will now come forward with a proposal. We need to complete to. This should be the main practical response to political response I think is that they should be a very clear understanding that wild Vladimir Putin remains in power. They should be normal talk of any kind of resets detente business as usual whatever you WANNA call it with the political regime that speaks with its opponents in the language of poisons and bullets.

Eleven years ago Libya's leader Warmer Qaddafi spoke for more than ninety minutes. He ripped into the international body at one point taking out a copy of the Charter of the United Nations reading from it. No, we are not equals and debris. That own nations are equal. Then, from the podium, ripping it up also tossed a piece of paper at Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.

States, and other Western nations whose mysterious September eleventh incident as a pretext to attack Afghanistan Iraq. Killing injuring dozens of diplomats in the assembly hall weren't having it. They got up out of their seats and left. This year with a pandemic of course, there can be no walkouts with a virtual assembly maybe just diplomats putting someone else on mute. For the world I'm Jason Margolis. Sweden has been the country that a lot of people have loved to hate during the pandemic. It's no lockdown strategy was seen as naive and cruel by some but the World Health Organization has praised Sweden's results a few weeks ago Sweden did massive testing and found a record low infection rate. But now rates are creeping up and Stockholm is considering further measures to contain the virus Dr. Johann Jessica is a Swedish physician and professor at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm I asked him. If he was concerned about the rise in corona virus cases I, don't think we should look at it at all. If maybe statistic construct generation is going up and down was up a couple of months ago and then down again. So I think we should wait to make a judgment on that. But I mean you you are seeing an increase no yeah. There is an increase and people concerned about the just. So if cases continue to rise in Sweden at what point would you advise Sweden to strengthen its measures like what kind of increase would you need to see before pushing for that? I couldn't say but it's not the time yet to anyway you know that Sweden has come in for some really tough criticism for its no lockdown policy it's something that Swedish officials and professionals have been saying the rest of the world just doesn't understand help us understand the situation. Sweden. What we've had lockdown I call it a soft lock. It builds some voluntary participation by the people. But if you tell people how this disease transmits and what sued since you should avoid, people will listen to you people stupid. You talked about a soft lockdown explain what that actually is it is, for example, as soon as you feel the slightest cold youth stay at how not to go to work. Work at home as much as you can avoid crowded places, there are few legal restrictions a crowd big fifty defeat of, for example, and bus drivers are allowed to deny entrance in their buses. Are Too many people in there. So there are a few but mostly builds on voluntary participation when it comes to the practical advice for the population is the government urging people to maintain social distancing wear masks not wear masks not wear masks. No. Why is that not been one of the things that the government's pushing for because there's no science to prove that they work. And yet, we hear from experts all over the world that there are plenty of reasons and scientific ones to to wear masks. But. That's the way it's been here. Sweden has reported nearly fifty, nine, hundred deaths since the start of the pandemic that's more per capita than both Denmark and Norway. So at this point of the pandemic, what do you think explains the difference I think Sweden had a much bigger seeding. Oh, cases in late, February early March than our neighbor countries said, we started at a much higher number of infected people than they did dougy center you. Played a key role in coming up with swings response to the coronavirus. What you know now that you didn't know six months ago about the best way to contain this virus, it spreads mooring clusters than influenza does ransom moves like a wave but this disease jumps from group of people to New Group of people and that wasn't clear six months ago and it makes, for example, contact race in becomes much for important with a cluster disease like. and. How has it reoriented your approach to containing the coronavirus in Sweden contact tracing is now gary important is done rigorously in all parts of the country falling off context testing them. So that has become more important now than it would have been doing flu season. So if you believe and sounds like you do firmly that the Swedish approaches largely working how come other countries have not adopted especially other. Nordic countries. The problem was much more in their counter does doctor and their politically Rita's will but I won't go into that. That's one thing I would say that it's far too early to compare countries to countries. Now, we're at the beginning of this. This would be going on for a long time and I think we should wait at least a year before we draw any conclusions or what which stranded you worked on, which did not looking back right now in September. Of Twenty twenty is there anything that Sweden should have done differently at the start of the pandemic, we should have been better protecting the old unafraid that was the main stale the strategy, but it didn't really work actually for number reasons and why not we weren't really prepared I would say but wasn't that kind of like one of the first headlines about the corona virus that it's you know people with co Morbidity, and the elderly who will be most affected. Yes but it takes some time to get all the equipment on the training under the don't do that from Monday to the next. So we were late I. Think they're what about? Swedes. What's been kind of the Swedish attitude about this approach to continue the coronavirus has anybody protested oh? Yes. Always I've been correct of people say that this is wrong but this is a democracy people out of their own news but maybe less than countries and we have not tell the US reaction at this against the constitution detraction hasn't been here at all.

"assembly" Discussed on The Political History of the United States

"Big in dealt several times with the politicians of the city attempting to make it escape. This includes Berkeley. Who was twice. Caught Anthony back home. This all makes sense as one assumes that the men of the Assembly must have been worried about their personal safety. How long before big declares himself a dictator and just perches the whole lot of them. The early demands by Bacon make sense. He demands reparations for his ship. That got song which is okay fine. He orders those friends of the governor. The ones who have been receiving so much special treatment from Berkeley over the years to be excluded from holding public office. They can that a letter be sent to England to contradict the earlier litter that Berkeley hit center requesting help any new governor to be over basically big in wanted to reassure England that everything is justified. Nothing to worry about over here please. Don't send the English regulars to reassert control over the colony. You may be wondering at this point. Why didn't they demand that Berkeley himself be removed from Power Bacon? Despite everything still at this point needed Berkeley the goal of BACON WAS TO REFORM VIRGINIA. However an attack against a royal governor was something that would bring the ire of the crown. Bacon isn't seeking independence from England and this is a critical point to make he was instead wanting to change the dynamic of power inside of Virginia. We are going to discuss this more than a few episodes time when we discuss. What exactly Bacon's rebellion is plus the legacy. However I wanted to at least throw that out there right now. All of this has become known as the DJ assembly with Berkeley momentarily. Out OF POWER. Bacon set forward on a series of reforms. The Assembly met on June twenty fifth. Sixteen seventy six to hear and consider beacons newest requests. The assembly was anxious to get this over with and get bacon at his men out of Jamestown as quickly as possible. The members of the House of Burgess were nervous that the wrong step mean they all end up dead better. You just get this done and get bacon out of town. The first thing that the assembly considered was a declaration of war against the Indians. Notice that this isn't against a single tribe or even a collection of tribes this was a general declaration of war against the Indians. This goes along nicely with the second bill that they can push through the second bill was condemning Berkeley for his choosing to support his profit from the for trade instead of the safety of the colonists along the frontier with little ability to respond or defend the trade. The House of Burgess is stripped Berkeley of all of his authority over the fur trade with the Indians. Next the Bacon camp turned to those hated for its along the frontier. These fords for many had improve. Berkeley's true allegiances. And they certainly were not going to allow them to survive is instead of defensive forts begging was going to lead his men on an offensive campaign that was to be funded by selling the captured natives into slavery and then selling their land to prospective buyers. This would in the eyes of Bacon kill multiple birds with one stone it would reduce the tax burden by getting rid of the Fort Tax. It would eliminate the Indian problem because now not only. Can you kill them? You can capture sell at relocate them. Finally it would reduce the skyrocketing value of Len in Virginia by increasing the supply to meet that growing demand speaking of the economy. They can also ordered that. A commission be formed to examine the widespread and often true rumors of fiscal mismanagement in the colony begin. Wanted to have a full accounting of how much revenue the colony made and more importantly he wanted to know exactly where that money was going and who the beneficiaries were for many in the assembly. This is had to be a terrifying call. We've discussed in earlier episodes that Berkeley was using tax money to enrich himself and his close supporters. It is a fair bet that there were a lot of men in the house of Burge's that really did not want to open that box making also introduced one year term limits on county sheriff's less. They grow too powerful. He also ended the system. Whereby the counselors appointed by Berkeley were exempt from taxation. This goes directly towards Indiana System of cronyism that becomes so systemic. During the years of Berkeley's time as governor at the same time Bacon move to increase the amount of popular sovereignty throughout the colony previously. It had of the governor would appoint judges out in the counties. This meant that the governor had a near stranglehold on the justice system as he was directly responsible for those men having and maintaining their positions under the new bacon regime judges would be split. Equally between the governor's appointees and judges who were popularly elected. This again reduces the power of the Central. Virginia government will increasing the power of the individual counties. Things were going well for Nathaniel Bacon in just three weeks. He had managed to overthrow the governor in all but name and spearheaded a massive series of reforms throughout the colony unfortunately for baking however problems still did exist for him as well while remaining. Jamestown would be the logical move at this point as he continues to reform the colony they can was a ruler by popular demand. The risk associated with popular rule is that you need to do what is necessary in order to make the masses happy. They will choose somebody else to lead them. Bacon closest supporters. Were those that had seen the conditions out on the frontier and knew how much Berkeley was ignoring their plight. Thus on June twenty fifth when news reached Bacon that Indian forces had letter. -rageous twenty five miles from Jamestown colonists. Now we're dead. He had little choice but to conclude his time in Jamestown and respond accordingly. This was a huge relief for members of the House of Burgess says who really really really wanted Bacon and his men to leave as a final act they can pushed through a final piece of legislation before he concludes the Jude Assembly. The Final Act was to force an irrevocable pardon for himself and his men for the actions over the last few months knowing that resistance was pointless and just wanting to escape alive governor Berkeley signed all of the bills that they can have pushed through the legislature. As soon as the ink was dry Berkeley wasted. No time in dissolving the Jude Assembly can and his men withdrew from Jamestown to deal with the Indian threat and at least for a moment Berkeley and his remaining supporters could exhale. However everybody knew that they were not done dealing with. Bacon and his men instead they had simply been granted a momentary reprieve. They would be back and more. Radical changes were likely to follow next time. We are going to continue to discuss the events that unfolded following the end of June assembly. Men like governor Berkeley. We're stuck trying to figure out what their next move was. And if there was any way to both politically and physically the storm that had befallen them as always. I appreciate you all listening. I hope you're all remaining safe and I hope you all have a fantastic two weeks. I will see you back here then where we will pick up the story of begins rebellion..

"Him. After eight tenths standoff. They can men realized that they had little choice as surrendered on June the tenth it certainly appeared as though Berkeley had won the day. The rebel Bacon and his men were in custody that afternoon begging was brought into the State House where he would meet face to face with governor Berkeley however much to everybody's surprise Berkeley didn't exactly seem to take advantage of his moment. He used his time to call out. Drummond in Lawrence and warn of the dangers that they posed he allowed big into confess which big did charged vacant for two thousand pounds and then agreed that if they can promise not to overthrow. The Virginia government would go ahead and authorize bacon to lead a force out against the Indians. Berkeley even went so far as to low bacon back onto the council. Okay so what gives Berkeley for all of his. Anger is just going to force. Bake it into making an empty apology. This entire ordeal was really just a hell governor. Berkeley feel better. Everybody in the Virginia House of Burgess was as stunned seriously. Nobody anticipated this and everybody is just trying to figure out what is going on at this point did Governor. Berkeley come to his senses and decide that the path to peace is by meeting Bacon demands. Well as it turns out. No that isn't the case at all. Uc Berkeley at. This point was sitting on information that nobody else appeared to known. Berkeley was becoming concerned over the fact that the Virginia militia was taking their sweet time to fully garrison Jamestown amp repair for the defense of the city. Defense from what you ask well at that same time. A large number of Bacon supporters were coming to town. They were armed. They were angry and they were determined to air. Their grievances to the governor in the assembly Berkeley was to his very core a royalist. He has supported. Charles I during the civil war. He supported Charles the secondary the restoration the only time when he was not the governor of Virginia was drained those years when Cromwell was empower however despite personally supporting and being friends with Charles the first Berkeley had zero interest in following his example. In death. Berkley just not super excited to be dragged out by an angry mob and beheaded with this in mind. Berkeley gave a generous pardon for Bacon. Made a nice show of mercy and intended that with Bacon. Pardon and actually getting exactly what he wanted. The angry mob would round and leave Jamestown to his credit Berkeley guessed correctly. Bathing was Freidan. Hey the concessions were pretty sweet with no reason to hang around Jamestown. The rebel promptly turned around and went back home. Berkeley figured that through these concessions he would be able to remove the immediate risk he would pacify bacon followers and more importantly would keep them from getting too interested in hunting around Berkeley's finances. The problem however for Berkeley is that he couldn't move past Nathaniel Bacon if Berkeley had just stayed on this path. There is a decent chance that biggest rebellion is nothing more than a mere but note Berkeley however decides to go in just totally different direction here as much as the people. In the House of Burgess were shocked. So wasn't the thing. Bacon making one would sure assume was aware that being captured by Berkeley enforces probably wasn't going to end well for him so a parking was not something that he would have seen coming. Bacon rightly was not just surprised by the pardon. He was also very skeptical about it. Those who had come to protect Bacon. We're going home and very quickly. Baking was going to find himself alone once again. Bacon was right to worry. Berkeley had no plans to let this go. And on the night of June eleventh Berkeley issued a new arrest warrant for Bagan having cleared beacons loyalists out of town. Berkeley now had a chance to bring the militia in to make sure that Jamestown was properly prepared should the rabble decide to comeback calling for their soon to be recaptured leader. Berkeley by all accounts was not planning to mess around this time. The order of the day was to capture bacon at execute him before a rescue mission could be launched when Bacon supporters returned Jamestown. Berkeley was said on their leader. Being dead hopefully nobody will be all that interested in funding a war over a dead man and they would all does go back home disappointed to be sure but without launching an attack on the morning of June twelfth men loyal to Berkeley Storm the Lawrence House where Bacon was expected to be hiding except Bacon. Apparently missed the memo that he was supposed to be holed up at Lawrence House when news reached Berkeley. That baking wasn't there at all. The governor realized that he had made a gigantic mistake. But this point. The news was out there that he had reissued the warrant begins. Men were coming and general. Bacon wasn't going to be anywhere near as dead as Berkeley had hoped. He would be Berkeley knowing what he had to do. You know defend James from the incoming agree mob instead decided to take another path Berkeley after evaluating the situation said yet no. I'm going to leave now. He quickly packed up his belongings. When to the Treasury and withdrew. His money made his way to Semi Bay and decided to get out of town. Well he still could and catch up with his wife. If all went as planned Berkeley would be on his way to London in just a few days. I think it goes without saying that. Just basically running away from the incoming storm storm largely caused by him is not a wonderful look for Berkeley however all things considered his real mistake in the situation is not that he decided to leave. James to the rabble. The real mistake at least personally for Berkeley is not making sure that the ship was ready to go. Berkeley suddenly found himself sitting on a ship. That was at least a week away from being ready to leave. Keep in mind that we are just thirty. Six hours pass Berkeley surprise. Pardon though when he may because Bacon men were beginning to flood into the poorly-defended Jamestown simple math tells us that these men loyal to Bacon are much closer than a week away. Berkeley as it turns out could also do math and quickly figured out that he had a very serious problem on his hands. He wasn't going to be able to hide Taylor to London before a furious mob descended on Jamestown if Berkeley had been concerned by the biggest supporters days before he must have been terrified of them now they were not only upset over the treatment of Bacon but they were feeling mightily double crossed by the governor understanding this predicament. Berkeley was forced to accept that he was not going to be getting out of Virginia. In time with the fight option exhausted Berkeley turned to his other option fight. Berkeley had some canons. Those that have been used before to fire on begins mid in the harbor that he ordered position for the defense of the city he likewise cintos cows to figure out the position of the rebel army for the second time this episode. This cows are not going to be heard from again which was still a very ominous side. So yeah not a great week to be a scout. On June twenty third look was made Bacon. It was just two miles from Jamestown out the front of a lot of angry colonists. Berkeley almost instantly realized that this was not going to be a battle. It was going to be a slaughter. Bacon was at the head of approximately four hundred men. Berkeley had about thirty militia members to defend the city and worse Berkeley Hackensack amongst the militia members. Present their loyalties were in question Berkeley wanting to avoid the wholesale destruction of Jamestown declared the city open and told his men to stand down. Bacon was going to take Jamestown without firing a single shot. General Bacon as he was now so lovingly being called was not going to waste any time making sure that everybody inside of Jamestown understood. We're the power now lied as soon as the town was captured. Baking called for the Virginia Assembly. To meet it goes without saying that this meeting was not business as usual and one has to imagine at this point for a man like Berkeley. He must have been wondering if he was going to leave that meeting. Alive once assembled Bacon made his demands directly to governor Berkeley. Well he must have enjoyed being called General Bacon by his men he wanted to actually make things official and thus demanded to be made a commission general now to be fair to the. Guy William Berkeley has had an especially bad couple of days in the realm of bad days is raking up. There really are not about to get any better. Of course eight respectable Manley. Berkeley is going to act in this situation. With only the highest honor and dignity right. Well if you consider a temper tantrum. Highest Honors Dignity then E. performed pretty well Berkeley at this exact moment has absolutely no power at all. Well on the surface. Bacon is asking for these things to be granted. Nobody at all is mistaken into believing that these were really requests. Bacon is telling Berkeley he expects Berkeley is going to do instead of accepting the inevitable or attempting to fight back against Bacon and his forces however Berkeley instead rips his shirt off and just request that they can shoot him right there on site as though this was not dramatic enough Berkeley then challenge begin to a sword. Fight Begin. Not really interested in. This makes a quick speech saying that. He just wants to protect the good people of Virginia and needs his commission. Having lost the day. The governor turned around and just walked out bacon for his part was trying to make. It appear that he just wanted what was best for the colony however with Berkeley unwilling to play ball. And they it actually requiring that. The governor acquiesced whose demands in order to grant legitimacy to his cause bacon needed to be clear that he wasn't there messing around Bagan followed Berkeley back to his house. Let him know that. Failure to comply to the demands of the people would result in Bacon's forces killing the whole lot of them. Berkeley unmoved shut the door and big face with the bowl. Back in begins court. The general ordered his men to present arms and aim them at the burgess his so a quickly of the land here. Berkeley is shut up inside of his house pouting. The members of the House of Burgess are watching from the window of the Assembly House with intrigue bigoted at his men have now turned towards them on are aiming their weapons at those same assembly members watching with intrigue intrigue quickly turns to fear for the assemblymen who are not interested in being shot despite Berkeley's wish for them to send from beside him. The assembly quickly yells back that they will find a way to give picking what he wants. Just please don't shoot us with the governor broken and the assembly just wanting to avoid being shot big it was now free to dictate its terms bacon needing to protect his victory. Set his men around Jamestown to keep a constant watch.

"Hello words welcome to another episode of the dictionary this is only just a few hours after i recorded the previous set which was the last three episodes i have a little time off so i'm gonna see if i can record some more episodes we are at the very very bottom of page seventy seventy three with the word assembly a. s. s. e. m. b. l. y. this is a noun from the fourteenth century one a company buzney of persons gathered for deliberation and liz legislation page flip worship or entertainment no they are not part of a page flip let's see that again a company of persons gathered for deliberation and legislation worship or entertainment to who is a capitalized form a legislative body specifically the lower house of a legislature three a meeting of a student body and i usually faculty for administrative educational or recreational purposes is like frisbee golf no no i meant to say ultimate frisbee for a we have the number one definition of the word assemblage as a synonym and and for be we have the number two definition for the word assemblage and let's go back and look at that and yeah cool i just wanted to make sure that they weren't the artistic form which would be pronounced assembly is number five a signal for troops to assemble roll or fall in six a the fitting together of manufactured parts into a complete machine structure or unit of a machine i hope they don't take us over and destroy us all five no six be a collection a collection of parts so so assembled seven the translation of assembly language to machine language by an assembler and actually did look up usually this doesn't happen so fast but i did look assembly language and it just looks like it's a very basic programming language oh in here we have assembly assembly language i swear i didn't even look ahead this is a noun from circa nineteen sixty four a programming language that consists of instructions that are pneumonic codes for corresponding machine language instructions and if you aren't familiar pneumonic is spelled m. n. e. m. o. oh n i see it's one of those fun words i now i'm actually more curious i wanna know what the pneumonic codes are next we have assembly line there is a hyphen this is an adjective from nineteen thirty nine made by or as if by an assembly line especially especially lacking originality or creativity as in board by the novel's assembly line plot next we have assembly numbly line without a hyphen this is a noun from nineteen fourteen one and arrangement of machines equipment and workers in which work passes from operation to operation in direct line until the product is assembled i was it was hard to read the word direct and it went over to the second line number two oh by the way i probably haven't mentioned this before but the pages of this book are very very thin because if they if they were regular page with this thing would just be massive so the pages are thin and so you can actually see a little bit of the words on the other pages on the other side and so sometimes the words are a little bit hard to read because of that okay number two four assembly line a process for turning out a finished product in a mechanically efficient manner as in academic assembly lines and to my knowledge while i think ford ford was the first one or one of the first ones to make to use assembly lines in car manufacturer and then mcdonald's was another notable will point in assembly line history where they were able to make things in a very specific regular way to get things out very quickly and that changed the world and america is what is because of that sort of kind of okay now we have you've man or assemblyman this is all one word it is a noun from sixteen forty seven a member of an assembly next we have assembly l. e. of god three words the a is capitalized and the g. is capitalized this is from nineteen fifty to a congregation belonging to a pentecostal hostile body founded in the US in nineteen fourteen here we have assemblywoman all one word it is a noun from eighteen sixty nine a woman woman who is a member of an assembly and i think i've experienced this in the past and mentioned it but i think it is fascinating not in a good way say that the word assembly woman wasn't coined until two hundred and twenty two years after the word assembly early man or assemblyman obviously people men didn't think that women should be part of assemblies or be able vote or obviously the list goes on and on and so it wasn't until eighteen sixty nine where it seems like women were allowed to be part of an assembly which is just the most ridiculous thing i've heard and that's when that woman that's when that word was coined eighteen sixty nine okay next we're going to talk about the word sent a. s. s. e. n. t. this is the last word for this episode but this is the first form we are also going to read the second form warm in this episode that is my story okay the first form of assessment is a verb specifically a an in transitive verb from the fourteenth century to agree to something especially after thoughtful consideration synonym is concur henny dime i hear the word concur i think of the movie i think it was called catch me if you can with leonardo dicaprio was tom hanks in that movie to see the one trying are in a catch leo boy i can't even remember at this point but when leo was playing you know we're on a first name basis me and leo he was playing a guy real life guy who he stole a lot of money he pretended to be people he wasn't he pretended famously to be a pilot i guess he also pretended to be a doctor and when he was pretending to be a doctor one of the nurses called him in for something and they said we think this is what we should do and he said i concur because he didn't know what to do or how to do it and so he just let them do it and he actually was watching watching tv shows about doctors to learn what to say and what to do and he had gotten that line from a TV show at least in the movie i i don't know if that's really what happened opened in real life but if somebody says something that i'm not completely sure if i agree with or not i'd say sure i concur all right it a center or a center yo r. e. r. those are nouns and the etymology says this is from anglo-french us interior ear or awesome tear which is from the latin awesome tari which is from the verb awesome thira which is from ad plus santeria which means to feel santeria era maine's to feel and there's more at the word sense and here we have some synonym information for assent let's see a cent consent a seed a c. e. d. or is that exceed assuming its seed acquiesce agree subscribe mean to concur there with what has been proposed a cent implies an act involving the understanding or judgment and applies to propositions or opinions as in voters assented to the proposal consent involves the will or feelings and indicates compliance with what is requested or desired as in consented to their daughters going she going to a dance party sleepover a seed eight again ACC ACC e. d. e. implies a yielding often often under pressure of assent or consent as in officials a seated see i just don't know how to pronounce we're now officials seated to the prisoners demands i'm sure we rented a read it i'm sure we read had a seed many many episodes ago but i don't feel like going back to check acquiesce spelled a. c. q. u. i. e. s. c. i hope i'm pronouncing that correctly acquiesce implies tacit acceptance or forbearance of opposition as in acquiesced best to his bosses wishes agree sometimes implies previous difference of opinion or attempts at persuasion as in finally agreed to come along subscribe implies not only consent or assent but hearty approval and active support as in subscribes wholeheartedly to the idea and i'm going to give another example i hope you all subscribe to this podcast and make other people subscribe to this podcast all right very last for this episode is again the word assent the second form it is a noun from the fourteenth century and i'm just looking at the oh i read that before okay this second forum means an act of a seventeen and synonyms are acquiescence and agreement so so the word should do more sure let's do one more asan tation a. s. s. e. n. t. t. i. o. n. this is a noun i'm from the fifteenth century ready ascent especially when insincere or obsequious ooh that's a good word obsequious what will be the word of the episode i think we're gonna pick assembly language may learn a little bit more about what that is and that is it for this relatively short for these new episodes where i'm not editing and yes if you haven't heard i'm not editing my episodes anymore in in case something drastic happens or i just
