"Random march seventeenth or july twenty seventh. Those might actually be easier days than new year's eve or christmas eve. It's cold people. Were home with the families. People have had a long year. They're enjoying some time off from work they don't want to be outraged But if you have been reading the headlines over the last eight weeks since the election. I think there is plenty eight seven weeks six weeks since the election. I don't know time moves so weird. These things have been weird particularly the last couple of weeks. So bill barr it was announced was being fired removed from office and they announced that his exodus would be occurring on december. Twenty third people blue checks and smart people said that there is nothing to this. Don't worry about it. This is just entirely coincidence. And people like myself. Who were maybe confused. Why bill barr been so helpful to donald trump all throughout his administration. And we will talk about. I'll give you a quick sample of bill bars. Helpfulness later on in this episode. But we'll revisit. The more report briefly and how bill bars reductions made the mola report a less useful document than it actually is. It's just the media. Narrative moved on. Bill was helpful. Bill barr was covering for a lot of donald trump sins and low. They are many and something was starting to happen. That was too much for even bill barr. We got whispers of part of it was a special prosecutor to investigate. Hunter biden So that we keep the hundred biden investigation going on benghazi. And i'm not saying one hundred biden into some messed up. Shit probably i ll. All the evidence is there when over to ukraine was sort of like my dad totally owns this dealership. He's the vice. President usually put me on this board. He knows nothing about gas. It's kinda like reminded. A lot about carter page lot reminded to a certain extent about don jr. here hundred is like a weird mixture of them. Maybe a little bit more competent. Maybe a little bit more addicted to drugs than don jr. or carter page page. We're but i hope biden. We'd know has issues. Just leave it at that I get it but you know barden one touch special prosecution of hunter biden. Which tells you where he's at even into getting dirt on hunter biden thing which by the way. Don trump was impeached over I feel like it's worth mentioning. Anytime we bring up hundred biden that this was a thing that trump was explicitly impeached over trying to get dirt on but we have moved on into weird things things so weird. That bill barr doesn't want to be a part of them. So what were they. Well we found out over the last couple of days It seems like part of it. Is this big string of pardons and donald trump has done a bunch of messed up parts. Now before we get into this. I want to talk about some of the other more innocuous. And let's be real i. This is light hearted. Because i think this will be reversed by the biden administration like nothing. Donald trump issued an executive order. That said i of read some of this This crap it prohibits any new federal buildings from being built in a style. Anything other than neoclassical georgian federal greek revival beaux arts or art deco styles so this is specifically and not brutal est executive order. And if you're like what is brutalism. It is a style of architecture that was in part popular in the soviet union. It's associated to some degree with communism and socialism in the twentieth century. It's also just a fucking style of building buildings. So let's get into the executive order. This is real. This is from the office of the press. Secretary section one purpose societies have long recognized the importance of beautiful public architecture. Ancient greek and roman public buildings were designed to be sturdy and useful and also to beautify public spaces and inspire civic pride throughout the middle ages and the renaissance public architecture continued to serve these purposes. The thirteen owed nine constitution of the city of cnn. Required by god. The thirteen o-9 constitution of this city of cnn required that whoever rules the city must have the beauty of the city. S is foremost preoccupation because it must provide pride honor wealth in growth to the citizens as well as pleasure and happiness to visitors from abroad. Lord knows the one thing you associate with the conservative movement. These days is welcoming and making happy visitors from abroad. Three centuries later the great british architect just a frame this game. We're in the year sixteen zero nine now in this executive order from the year. Two thousand twenty. The great british architect sir. Christopher wren declared that quote public buildings are the ornament are the ornament of a country. Architecture establishes a nation draws people and commerce and makes the people love their native country architecture aims at eternity notable founding fathers agreed with these assessments and attached great importance to federal civic architecture. They wanted america's public buildings to inspire the great american people and encourage civic virtue. President george washington. And thomas jefferson consciously modeled the most important buildings in washington dc on the classical architecture of athens and rome quick aside here thus inspiring conspiracy theories for hundreds of years. They sought to use classical architecture to visually connect our contemporary republic with the antecedents of democracy in classical antiquity reminding citizens not only of their rights but also their responsibilities in maintaining impo perpetrating. No perpetuating these institutions that last night almost reads like a fuck control at this point and it goes on with this. It goes on for a very long time here. I'm trying to see if we eventually get into modernism. We do we do. Yes so the other part of this beyond brutalism also modernism. Yeah this is some of what. The trump administration is spending time on. This goes on for several pages. But you get the idea. I think we've covered it here. We started in the year. Thirteen o nine promoting beautiful federal civic architecture anyways that's some of what the trump administration has been doing and frankly One of the good things about the biden administration coming is that shit like that is not going to come to pass because it's stupid but like if trump remained president then all builders federally speaking would have to make structures in that style and who knows how that style might interfere with different engineering techniques more modern engineering techniques. It's literally confining builders to dated historical but also dated building techniques when there are more efficient techniques that should and can be used that can be better for energy for example. It's not really about aesthetics. Also really weird to just be mostly about aesthetics on that front regardless of the cost especially same party that wants to cut the arts for any other thing Anyways very trumpy thing. Very weird like arch kind of crypto. They're taking our culture conservative thing. Steve miller very online a white list white genocide type thing The they're taking our architecture taking our history away from us that sort of thing. we'll be reversed by the biden administration but one slightly creepy to slightly funny. Let's let's keep it real not funny. Donald trump has been issuing pardons throughout his administration and they have been of a dubious moral value in a often being done. Ask virtue signals to tell people throughout the course of the molar pro. Hey if you hang tight. I will pardon you at the time people like myself would bring up a number of pardons and we'll recap some of those and we would say hey. Donald trump is using this as a way to signal to people involve in the russia investigation. That if you do not play ball with the investigation and even more importantly if you lie on behalf of donald trump whatever trouble you get into with the federal government. Donald trump will use his power of the pardon that is covered and for in the constitution..

Sexual orientation astrology was a pretty good episode with Christopher Wren's trim. Although it's a little bit controversial because that's a really delicate to bait Nash watch community, and we tried to like treat the best the arguments on both sides. It wasn't as controversial as I thought. It would be though, even though we did try to treat both sides like respectfully, and I think it was partially just because we did it somehow we pulled off a balance of doing that of presenting both sides without necessarily endorsing either one, right? Yeah. Didn't that come out of lake discussion already being had recently before that? Yeah. I mean, there's no media most episodes that I do a lot of them are in response to some discussions that are happening online at the time. 'cause then I'll get the idea. Like, hey that actually really great topic for a podcast find somebody or some participants in the discussions that are already talking about it. And and obviously have something interesting to say in the will record it Scott. Shen on it. Right. Yeah. Yeah. There was probably some something specific at the time though. A lot of the QNA episodes are all really good. I was listening to some of them again in retrospect, but they're really hard for me to summarize in the title of the episode. So like episode eighty two is titled QNA episode Arabic. Parts house division mythology because we're touching on like a bunch of different topics. And they're usually really good discussions. But it's hard for me to summarize what they are. So I try to put that in the description to some extent, but I would really recommend people. Listen to all the CUNY episodes because they tend to go through variety of different topics, and the discussions are usually pretty compelling and a lot more bite sized and like approachable then. So the longer episodes are definitely. Yeah. So like, the I'd like to do more of those. Richard Tournus and cosmos on cosmos and psyche eighty four was a major crucial episode. Episode. Eighty six is a solo show while I was writing the book Saturn is feminine earliest female astrologer. This was coming out of some research that Charles Ober had done on seeing that in the text of Dorothy side on it seems to refer to Saturn is being feminine planet. And the question of whether that was literally like a typo or trans missionary which sometimes there are other parts of Dorothy as where there are simply copying errors the copy. Got it wrong. Because the text is what we have is like an English translation of an Arabic. Translation of Persian translation of the original Greek text, which was written in the form of poem naturally. Some things were changed during the process of going through all those languages over the past literally two thousand years. Yeah.

Couldn't you one in the neck of the dog and one of the bum of the dog. And then you get the blood just going around. You know, you've got to go to circulatory systems. Yeah. Go ahead to the government. You said the transfusion came to an end when the amidst dog, which is the one who gave the blood began to cry and faint and fall into convulsions. And that last day. Oh, yeah. They want the animal rights want, a strong and the outer phrase. But it was successful, which is kind of wit sneakers. Just like humans really when your blood transfusions impasse is good to have the same plot. Type think dogs have the same blood type. No cats of a Abyan b. As and Bs outlay us in the different proteins on the OR, they believe so but hang on woulda. That's I've never considered that. What a great Dane have different types of blood to Scotty. So all dogs can give blood to all other dogs, a feeling they can't give it to humans because of the pro the on the yes, although they can give it to all of those things. So it's the same species, isn't it? It's just different humans. Can't get all of the sorry. No. Yeah. You're right. It's the same as humans as pace. Coffee, Taipei schnauzer. Yes. Okay. Yeah. If you're a bird any kind of bird, then you can have a transfusion from any other kind of bird. Wow. I'm so rubbing donate to an ostrich. But you'd need quiet. Love robbins. That's incredible. So donating blood between animals, they started, you know, injecting blood from say car into a person that was a few a year later after this first experiment, and he died, so it was a time the person died, but there was this weird rash of cases in the mid nineteenth century where doctors just started saying, we'll milk will probably work just as well and putting milk into people's bloodstreams directly. Yeah. They thought because it's got these little oily droplets. Dopplers They they feel feel. they might turn into white blood cells just to Bob Dylan Hodder, and this is all from I found this journal transfusion, and this is the nine hundred sixty nine addition, but they wrote out the whole thing and their first patient was said to respond dramatically to twelve ounces of cow's milk. But two of the patients who they transfer the following died and people kept dying as well wiscon- dramatically. Doesn't happen to twenty five years. At least some people were just putting milk into flood. They started doing even in the seventeenth century. So Christopher Wren did love this. Bizarre. Before we go into building cathedrals. He was involved with which allow this first transfusion and he used to inject dogs with water milk, beer, wine and opium plot. Transfusions? He once said, I have injected wine a nail into a living dog into the massive blood by vein in good quantities till I have made him extremely drunk, but soon after he pissed off its out. But also the idea of putting animal blood into humans. That was a big field debate about what you would be doing. If he were pudding foreign blood in someone else's body. Because supposedly the soul would be contained inside some of that blood. So you're altering the whole person. So what they used to plan out was if they were going for someone who is a bit wild. They would get sheep's blood because that was a calm nurturing. Jesus like animal would then give us sort of balance of a soul to this walled character equally. If they had someone who's very shy. They might adopt an animal that had a bit more of a wild attitude, and the idea was doing them with that blood, essentially, the Jesus like Lamm. Yeah. It's a weird thing. This is so on just taking blood and put it into other people.
