We're brought to you by long fence, say 15% on long fence decks, pavers and fences, go to long fence dot com today and schedule your free in home estimate. It's 7 11, have you seen them or have you been going about your life here in the D.C. area, not knowing they existed? We're talking about hundreds of Chinese made drones that have been violating local airspace and flying over The White House, the capital and The Pentagon. Let's take your life tonight to Politico senior national correspondent Brian bender. Good of you to take a bit of the start of your holiday to be with us, Brian, is this what espionage looks like in 2022? What is going on with these drones flying over our area? Well, that's certainly the concern. I think it's important at the outset to make clear that these are not drones operated by the Chinese government. These are recreational drones. Something you might get for Christmas even. But most of the drones in the U.S. are made in China, one company in particular DJI incorporated. And the concern here is that they are basically breaking the rules by flying over the mall, The Pentagon, The White House, other sensitive areas in the National Capital Region, and these are Chinese made drones, Chinese technology, and like we hear when it comes to TikTok, and all kinds of other Chinese technologies are concerned is they could be hacked into that they could be used as a means of espionage. And so that's where national security officials are concerned that this is yet another example where the sort of ubiquitous Chinese technology could be used against us. Any evidence that the Chinese government is responsible here. And if not, who might be? Well, I mean, everyone that we've talked to does not think there's any evidence to suggest this is some sort of Chinese orchestrated effort here. But again, these are Chinese drones. They're very easy to manipulate so that you can fly them in areas that are restricted like the very restricted airspace over D.C. and obviously if the Chinese wanted to, or anyone else for that matter, they could potentially hack into these drones, use them for surveillance, not just to gather pictures, but maybe even eavesdrop on communications. There's all sorts of things. And again, this is part of a larger trend where national security officials are starting to realize that the Chinese have developed lots of technologies on the Internet in our everyday lives that if they wanted to use for nefarious purposes, it wouldn't be that difficult. I'm sorry if some consider this a dumb question, but I wonder if it's on people's minds. You know, when a plane violates airspace over The White House, jets are scrambled, people are evacuated. Why isn't it the same response to these drones just because they're so tiny? Well, they're tiny and obviously they're not they're often not in the way of commercial aircraft, but there have been cases where they have gotten too close to Reagan national airport, for example. And you know, I think what federal officials are really grappling with is what new authorities might they need in order to counter these drones to go after them. I mean, you have to keep in mind these are Americans out on a Sunday with their new drone, potentially just having a good time and not with any ill intent at all. So there's privacy concerns, of course. But again, this is D.C. airspace, one of the most protected areas in the country. If not the world, and I think federal officials are grappling with how do we confront this potential threat without crossing the line and preventing people from doing what they want to do, like I said, without any real ill intent. Brian, thanks so much for the information and being with us. Thanks for having me. That is Politico senior national correspondent Brian bender.

They want to make sure that there is a peaceful transfer of power from President Trump to present. Intellect bite and we have to remember. Not only are their domestic concerns but as a regular thing on a regular basis. Whenever there is an inaugural, they're always international concerns, so the inauguration is first. Secondly, the capital riot is still fresh in everyone's minds, especially law enforcement, and they want to make sure they send the message that this will never happen again. And then there's significant intelligence as you mentioned about eminent threats, and they want to deal with that. They have to make sure that if there are threats that they won't come to anything, and the fourth thing is sending a message to those that they're sitting on the fence, perhaps looking at everything and possibly thinking about planning something for the future, and the message is, don't do it because if you do, this is what you will get. There are a lot of local agencies on edge a lot of federal agencies on edge. What a bracing for today. Intelligence reports that we've seen and law enforcement have talked to us about it about this as well that there are almost 20 distinct events that are being planned, at least on social media or in other chat rooms and other sources of against extremist conversation in Washington by militant groups between today. And the inauguration, and they're after many more planned nationwide, So that's what they're planning for the possibility that there might be these protests and what they're looking at is the fact that some of these protests will none of them really have a shadow of a chance of being successful.

Tv g in session. Here's our conversation and be sure to stay tuned after my conversation jordan for an interview with two jingle jangle youngest man. Thank you so much for joining me today jordan. Thank you so much for having me you. So i'm very excited that you were able to join me because i feel like jingle jangle is the single most just adorable. Wholesome like swedish thing. I have seen in quite some time. I write it is really yeah. It really felt like a bom at this point in the year. That is twenty. Twenty right Yeah so. I know that you also had lots of thoughts and feelings about jingle jangle so i love to just kinda here. You know like on a cursory level. What kind of were your initial reactions to it. Like you said i mean it was just definitely a feel good movie. Great to see black culture black hairstyles. He saw dance moves. You saw so much of the culture in the movie itself as well and so that was great to see. I loved the grandparent aspect of it. I have you know amazing parents than they had me. Young and so. My grandparents have always stepped in albany very integral part of me growing up so i love that part that definitely warned my heart as well so the movie it was it was great. Yeah and it wasn't really something. I was expecting to love so i think he came out earlier this year. Right like in november. And i saw people talking about it and i was like. Oh maybe i'll have the kids wash that like a little closer to christmas or something. I mean then. I found out it was a musical and i'm not usually a fan of music. That was like oh i'm gonna love that and then we watched did the first time in the evening and i just first of all i probably teared up within like the first fifteen minutes right because it was so beautiful. You know and like you're mentioning. Just lots of layers in terms of the family dynamic and just like you said gorgeous hair styles and just it was shot beautifully right so i think it just put me. All of my feels in a way. That i wasn't necessarily expecting. Yeah i think my first time watching it. My dad and my step mom and my two siblings live in atlanta but i am currently in maryland in we decided to watch it together over net flicks to and that was nice and then we watched it again. I wanna say it was thanksgiving evening or sometime around the thanksgiving holiday inn. So it's definitely a nice family movie but like you said. There's a lot of generational things that i saw that were woven in as well so i really appreciate it. I think it's a great movie for all ages. Yeah i agree. I agree with it now. Because i feel like i can't ever really watch anything without like picking up some additional meanings. I definitely feel like i was able to get lost in it. Which i think was a part of the fun that i was able to really kind of get lost in the magic of it in a fantasy of it but i did still kind of walk away with like. Oh there was a mess we can use f. or something else right so tell me about maybe some of the messages that you got from the field ivory washed it now. Maybe three to four times. There's like three major themes standouts to me so one was just belief like believing in yourself believing in the magic of things and therapist in me kinda boiled down to like imposter syndrome and how that can make you not believe in yourself but also the like the pros and cons of it right because the competing toymaker. He stole the ideas from toronto. Will you know him taking drama things. It just showed me that. What's for you is for you. So even though he took it and made a profit in the beginning when that lasts invention that he tried to steal didn't work to me. It was because you didn't know what it took or what was the meaning or what was important behind. It like how drawn did because he's who created it. It didn't work for you so even though you tried to steal his shine it still ended up. Not coming to you. The way that you expected and then for dronka's like once a believer always a believer. So i think with his phil successes. It made him forget who he really is in. It reminded me sometimes with myself or with clients that i see that when things don't go our way we sometimes start to feel like maybe this is not for us when maybe it is. It's just that we're having some difficult times. That doesn't mean that it takes away who you are what you were created to do so. That was the first team that stood out to me because belief in the magic and all of those things in that being what made the the code that he would write in work and stuck out.

Which I'm sure your listeners are familiar with but it was a program in the nineteen thirties to have more people in the United States prepare to get a pilot's license and Senate was I guess subsidized by the US government and it was offered through a lot of universities and university. Of Maryland was one of them. And Anyway. So they had an advertisement for this program where you could learn how to fly and it costs thirty five dollars. Or forty dollars and you got thirty five hours of flight training and ground school and whatever. So my grandma thought that would be cool. So she applied and at the time which doesn't sound like a big deal you're signing up for a class nowadays. But back, then if you were a woman, they only accepted one woman for every ten men in the class. So you kind of had to I don't I never asked her if there were comp competition about this or she just happened to be the only woman that applied I don't really know but anyway. So, she asked her dad for the money and she also had to get a permission slip signed because she was female and under the age of twenty one and not married. So her dad had to sign a permission slip and that's how she initially took pilot training lessons West, through this program at the University of Maryland. Very. Cool. So after she got her thirty five hours, did she continue to fly on her own? Not Really she I think she did a little bit but she basically that was in nineteen, hundred forty, sue her last year of college. She got her pilot's license and then not too long after that, she got married in the summer of nineteen forty one. To my grandfather, and then as your listeners I'm sure. Well, aware six months later Pearl Harbor happened. So I don't think you flying around was generally something that happened. A Lot. So at that point, my grandmother and grandfather were moving around a lot to support the war effort they lived in Ohio at one point for a while and we're kind of working at different places. And and so how did she get back into? So in nineteen, forty, three, I believe there was an big. The Women Airforce Service pilots kind of became newsworthy and there was a little bit of news about them. Newsreel. The old newsreels are in life magazine, and so my grandmother heard about this program called the WAAS. And thought she could apply and she asked my grandfather. If he thought it would be a good idea and he thought it would be a great idea for her. So she applied and she kind of didn't really think she would get in because she really the most she had done was that civilian pilot training program she didn't have a lot of hours. And she kind of applied and thought oh well, we'll see what happens but they accepted her. So that's how she ended up becoming one of the Watson. Then she started training in April of Nineteen, forty four where did she go for Carini? She was in sweetwater Texas Avenger field, which is in western Texas. About an hour west of Abilene Texas. Now. Did your grandfather go there with her when she went there No. So my grandfather was an engineer and he later became a patent attorney, but he was not in the service because he had a physical defect so he was So, he couldn't serve in the army. But he was I think recruited I would say by a company to actually manufactured airplane parts called Jack and Heintz which some people may not because I've seen their parts in the in the warbirds He got sent to Asia to work on a plan to repair aircraft for the US military in theater in the Pacific. So the planes didn't have to be sent back to the continental United States to be repaired to save time. So he got sent over there to work on that program as a civilian, and so he was gone during this time when she was trainy. tweet water. Aircraft was she trained in? So she was trained on I think they were all trained on basic plane. So things like the the steersman PT, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, eighty, sixes, bt, Thirteen's neither all planes that she was training on. And what did she eventually flawed she I assume she was multi current and flew a lot of different airplanes as wasp. Yes. So all the WAAS flu lots of different planes and there were groups of wasps that were trained to fly every plane that was produced during World War Two from little trainer planes all the way up to be twenty nine bomber. So not every wasp was trained to fly every plane obviously but they're little groups trained to fly like you know pursuit crafter bombers or whatever. So. She was trained to fly bt thirteen's to train men in instrument training. So that was her job after she graduated. So she was transferred to Nellis Air. Base. In Las Vegas. And with her best friend from the WAAS Maggie Gee and Magnesia was to- target pilot in Las Vegas. So they were transferred there and my grandma trained men on instrument training in the thirteen. And she was also has some time as a co-pilot on the B seventeen.
