"It's here and now The conflict in Ukraine is tearing apart millions of families And it may also be stopping some from coming together affecting international adoptions of the Ukrainian children Susan Sharon of Maine public radio talks to an American couple who are planning to adopt two Ukrainian brothers Tracy Blake bell recalls the moment two years ago that she fell in love with two Ukrainian boys They had just flown into New York for a sponsored trip to the U.S. The youngest was sick to his stomach unable to keep anything down on the long car ride to her farm in Maine And his older brother was wiping his face for him and trying to help him feel better and when I saw that love and compassion and connection between those two boys I think that's when I adopted them in my heart Since then vanya and saroja now 17 and 14 have twice traveled back and forth from their orphanage for extended visits with the bells who also have two sons about the same age Last summer the couple began the process of adopting them and in late January as Russian troops amassed on the border they made the difficult decision to travel to Ukraine for a required appointment with the State Department of adoption And I was in this living room sitting there with my two teenage biological teenage sons And I said I'm so sorry That I'm putting you through this But we if we don't go to this SDA appointment we will not be able to adopt the boys The bells visited the boys in their rural orphanage and filled out legal paperwork then they returned home When Russia invaded a short time later their adoption was not yet complete The couple held their breath as the orphanage director worked out an evacuation plan for the boys and nearly 60 other kids The group is now in Poland Nat bell is relieved but he says the boys are trapped in a bureaucratic system that's been destroyed by the invasion So currently they're safe but they're not eligible for a tourist Visa because they're in the adoption process And without a Ukrainian judge granting them custody Nat says the only option is for the federal government to relax its rules to allow them to come to the U.S. Daniel Stevens the executive director of family connections Inc an agency involved with international adoptions says it's an equally tenuous situation for other Ukrainian orphans and temporary shelters There may be host families willing to take them in but no way to facilitate the process There needs to be movement on okay let's get in a safe organized track of a way kids into placements that is going to be sustainable Maybe it's for the next 60 days Maybe it's 90 days maybe it's longer The bell family is currently working with members of Maine's congressional delegation on possible solutions and they're grateful for the outpouring of support they've received Tracy's thoughts are also with the orphanage director He was unable to cross the border because he's a man in his 50s who may be needed to fight in the Ukrainian resistance I'm just so thankful that he took such good care of my kids for the years that they were in his care The man is one of the unsung heroes of the war she says and now among her long list.

Maybe we could arrange a fistfight. It's just between the two crews. Just sitting there. As a guest on a render when you're not used to doing it. I can say that right now. It's hard to think of something really cool to say every time. And you guys never had any trouble, thank you so much. You guys have mastered it, you too. You too. Oh, wow, big competition. So it's fun. Okay. Well, there's just a little bit of little bit of housekeeping to do here. Now that it is Christmas time, it's now that it is Christmas. I would like to make a formal apology to all the render listeners who put up their Christmas lights before Thanksgiving. You want to apologize to them? I do. I apologize. Because now that it's Christmas and we're all pumped for Christmas, I'm like, maybe they were instrumental in helping you get pumped. Maybe they were maybe they were right the whole time. Maybe soon.

"We had a quite amazing moment at the press conference and following it when professors witty and grounds were were asked to respond to questions and an unto respond to this viral tweet from nikki menards about poor cousins friend who had some serious problems. Apparently with his anatomy after getting the vaccine is probably wasn't expecting it to be scrutinized by the uk's chief medical officer. How much of a problem is that kind of viral tweets from celebrities or is it to be honest. Just quite funny. Oh i think is a huge problem and you saw from. Chris wishes response that you know he. He finds it distressing. I mean i couldn't tell whether you've actually heard of human nausea did a good job of sorts of responding to the general problem of misinformation. Thank you so. There are a number of myths that fly around with varying some of which are just clearly ridiculous and some of which are clearly designed just to scared happens to be one of them that is untrue. My own strong suggestion. If i may to media present and not present is repeating them in public actually just gives them credence which they don't need and as we've gone through the summer where there is enough immunity that people consider behave more or less as they were before without the sky falling in. I think we are in a particularly dangerous moment. Now with this where you could easily look around and think what is the fuss. What was this all about to begin with. Look know there's no it's all been a bit of a sky or it's open a bit overblown. And i know that this health professionals and people in government. Oh very worried about that. As it were the the liberation that signs has afforded us could end up being weaponized against the signs. Never a dull weekend with mr by fell back. Thanks ever so much for joining me especially as ever and that's all from us this week. Make sure to listen to friday's episode of politics.

"Just refuse to cooperate. Yeah and they're doing exactly that sarah. We always ask our guests on the show. A what else question so on something completely different so this week. Joe biden has been traveling the world. He's been in cornwall in england for the g. seven and had a summit meeting with vladimir putin in geneva. What's the word in washington. How do people. How do you think he's done in his first foreign trip as president. Well i would saying. There's this i think of rough sense that people like the message that quote unquote washington is back that the us is back to be constructive collaborative and to be a player 'isolation but there's also the sense that the the ship estate is hard to turn in. Whether or not the the impact of the trump administration. I think may be harder to undo Than many people had hoped or expected sir binder professor of political science at george washington university. Thanks so much coming on politics. Weekly extra it. Thanks so much. For having right before i go. I must ask you our listeners on days. That haven't quite gone to plan your home alone. And there's no one there to judge you. What is your go-to meal that makes you feel better. I must confess to my five year. Old is still partial to baked beans on toast literally the meal. I did enjoy as a toddler and occasion.

"But back when he was a prosecutor. Now i disagree. I think that he felt that he was on the up and up. And i think he felt that what he was doing was morally justified. Because once again you know he felt the biden's were cropped getting a free pass and that and that trump on the whole russia investigation was was loaded in he was going to expose that through his through his Detective work in ukraine. So i you know. I can't say that he sought completely cynically. I referred to that moment which again went round the world when he was filmed with the streaks of what must have been had i running down his cheeks and you know and have caused the late night hosts mocked him and the video went viral. Do you know him. Well you've watched him so closely for so long. Do you think it bothers him. He went from being the hero of nine. Eleven to being this kind of joke figure. of course it does. of course it does. I mean here's a man who cares. More about is Kind of public. God a standing in virtually any politician. You can think of Look i mean. I think during the that unfortunate period the giuliani was trying to relive his glory years as a prosecutor and he was he was trump's attorney and who's trying to prove a case he was trying to prove that the election was stolen from trump but he was not a you know thirty five year old prosecutor anymore. He's you know he's a man in his seventies and he hadn't prosecuted case in decades. What is the relationship with donald trump. Like now they still in touch if they fallen out. Tell us where the relationship stands. Now i mean now he's now he's a man under investigation the fbi raided his office raided his apartment. So you know there's that and also there is the potential situation in which the feds kind of press guiliani to to turn on trump right. Tell them what they tell him. What what he knows about trump did so the two of them are in a very fraught position right now and trump is under investigation. Also i did mention at the top that he's son. andrew giuliani. What is it with these big new york. Politicians in suns could andrew wanting to be governor andrew. Cuomo son of mario is going to be andrew. Giuliani governor son of rudy. What do you think what are his chances. His chances are very low. I mean he's he's he's trading on giuliani's name which is not particularly Much of an asset at this point he also has a virtually no qualifications for the job. I mean he's he's diluted right now. There's he's up against people who have been Season politicians who have records of accomplishment. An intra liani was a low level staffer and the white house with famous name and he played golf with president trump But i i think he has. Delusions of grandeur. Yes so you don't put any money on the giuliani dynasty. Seizing the governorship of new york. Anytime soon We always ask our guests on the podcast. A what else question on something completely different. So what else question to you. This week is the joe. Biden is about to come to britain to cornwall in england for the g. Seven summit the host for that is the british prime minister. Boris johnson joe biden wants called boris johnson a physical and emotional clone of donald trump. Do you think that it's going to make it. A little awkward across the g seven table between biden and johnson as a result but politicians are very transactional people and so. I'm sure they'll proclaim a new day in in their relationship and biden his you know biden scott approval rating of over sixty percent right now. He's he's doing very well with the public I think that'll carry a lot of weight in in terms of other foreign leaders who Who need to something out of the united states. I mean that the two countries are are so inextricably bound to one another that it's just in everyone's best interest politically speaking to get along andrew kertzman. Thanks so much. For coming on the podcast. I think this conversation has been fascinating. I've really enjoyed it. Thanks thanks for having me and that is all from me for this week before we go. I want to recommend you. Listen to wednesday's episode of uk politics weekly where the team looked ahead to what. He's one of the biggest tests for boris johnson on the international stage. It is that g seven summit taking place this weekend and of course at liked to hear from all of you as i've mentioned before we always do enjoy questions or comments. Please keep sending them in.

Yes so george. Bush is running against as you mentioned the incumbent texts attorney general can paxton and paxton comes with a lot of baggage. He's been facing us. Securities fraud charges for the past several years. But paxton is a very pro-trump figure and so when you look at this race it really is going to become a matter of the two candidates trying to out trump each other for lack of a better term and george. Bush is very comfortable with being a pro-trump candidate. He spoke to trump last week. And he's really angling for trump's endorsement which is obviously kind of the most crucial endorsement that one can get in the republican primary right now and it's kind of remarkable to see him take that path because he is these on of as trump called him. Low energy jeb bush and yet trump's attacks on his family have not stopped him from aggressively courting his endorsement. And i think that that's just underscores the incredible sway. That trump still has over the republican party. It is truly his party. Well as you say the lead up to november twenty. Twenty two has already begun. We're going to be covering it right here on politics. Weekly extra joni. Thanks so much for joining us on the podcast. Thank you so much for having me and that is from me next week.

The Joe judge was going to come out after that loss with his normal tossed salad of cliches about working hard about how giant fans work hard, and he's trying to make the fans proud. And of course, he did exactly what you would expect him to do and say and delivered. No excuses were working hard. We're tryingto product on the field. You can be proud of. We understand that you work hard as well. There's no excuses from us. We have to improve me better for you guys. Dude, you're not coaching the local high school football team.

And you just knew that they were going to man down and find a way to lose last night even when they were up by double digits with five minutes to go, because that's who they are. That's what they do. That's where they live, and nobody should ever be surprised by that. I know the guys in that locker room art at this point, it's no longer a game. It's no longer even a job. It's a lifestyle.

"Himself a law and order president and an ally of all peaceful protesters in the wake of George Floyd's death but he then criticized protesters these are not acts of peaceful protests these are acts of domestic terror the destruction of innocent life and the spelling of innocent blood is an offense to your vanity and a crime against god as the president spoke police and troops used force to clear where nonviolent protesters outside the White House so the president could walk to a nearby church for a photo op a new poll from NPR PBS newshour Marist finds that two thirds of Americans say president trump is increased racial tensions following the death of George Floyd joining us now to talk about the poll is NPR's Domenico Montanaro dominical thanks so much for being with us Hey there's got things happening overall how do Americans view the protests you know they view them pretty positively it means a sixty two to twenty eight percent margin that people say that they view the demonstrations as mostly legitimate protests rather than mostly people acting unlawfully and by a similar sixty one to thirty one percent margin they view the demonstrations as more protests than right it's pretty much the same numbers and while a majority still have at least a fair amount of confidence in police in their own communities to treat black and white people equally that's down eight points from America pull from twenty fourteen there are predictably divides along party and racial lines yeah fifty nine percent of Republicans saying that they view the demonstrations as riots for example and how almost half of African Americans forty eight percent saying that they have very little to no confidence that the police will treat whites and blacks equally the medical have these attitudes towards protests changed over the years this is a huge finding I feel like in the poll that there's been this sea change really from the nineteen sixties when demonstrators took to the streets to fight for civil rights I took a look back at some of the poll numbers from Gallup and Harris and others and majorities in the nineteen sixties had an unfavorable view of civil rights demonstrations and they thought that they would actually hurt African Americans cause for racial equality for example in one poll question nineteen sixty three sixty percent of Americans had an unfavorable view of the planned March on Washington that's the same March on Washington that produced Martin Luther king junior's I have a dream speech and in nineteen sixty eight your member the unrest around the Democratic National Convention in Chicago majorities approved of the police's response and said that Chicago mayor Richard Daley then was right in his forceful use of the police against those demonstrators and that's just not what we're seeing today and of course to medical these protest come along the same time table is elections in November according to this poll what are American chain about the job president trump is doing you know president trump's approval ratings about where it's been it's at forty one percent but his disapproval rating we find is on the rise it's

a plan to take on five Confederate statues on historic monument Avenue here's the mayor of Richmond lavar stony it's time to replace the racist symbols Russian inequality symbols have literally dominated our landscape with symbols that represent in some of the best in all of us the Richmond city council will have to give final approval to dismantle four of the monuments including the one of Jefferson Davis who was president of the confederacy but the largest the six story tall statue of Robert E. Lee stands on state property governor Ralph Northam is directed it be removed as soon as possible this announcement happened after daily demonstrations to Richmond against police brutality and racial injustice governor Northam signed a new law on April that allows localities to remove these types of memorials historian Julian Hayter is a professor at university of Richmond he was a member of the monument Avenue commission that made recommendations to the city two years ago about the statues thanks very much for being with us my pleasure the engineer remind us why the statues around because it it you know they were put up by officials in states that had after a loss to civil war correct right so these monuments are in many ways part and parcel of what we called the lost cause in the six hundred and some odd thousand people died during the civil war which is twice as many of the people that died the second World War and I think people have to make sense of that especially southerners many of them didn't know what the punishment was going to be for the civil war and I think the loss because the way to justify rationalize and make sense of their part in the confederacy and what many considered treason and what we begin to see over the twilight of the nineteenth century southern is coming up this kind of crafted apologies to rationalize not only the civil war but also slavery but even more importantly the rise of Jim crow segregation professor hater what what about the argument that is as reprehensible as what those statues might represent a you can't erase history and the best thing is to you know put up plaques that explain who those people really work or something like that yeah it's difficult to erase history however I think many Confederate statues stand without context and they are part of a much larger narrative the institutionalization of the loss because the belief that African Americans were happy slaves and unprepared for freedom that the civil war was about states rights not slavery that Confederate leadership were heroes a sizeable number of Americans still believe lost because talking points I think what people have resolved to do you is saying sure it's difficult to erase history but what history and what kind of false narratives are we willing to promote and let it linger do you think those monuments if they come down should go into storage go to some private collector or or be melted down I think if those monuments are put in a warehouse it is a squandered opportunity to deal with this false narrative that I that I continue to bring out the end this is just the beginning of a much larger movement to deal with all of the other manifestations in symbols of Jim crow segregation that continue to have an influence on the nature of southern cities Confederate statue weighs in the only route to the lost cause and and segregation we've got a public and obsolescence we segregated public school system in the city of Richmond we've got residential segregation in the compression of poverty that still affects the very fabric of the city it be wise to use these statues as a teachable talking points to to familiarize people with the kind of perpetuation of African American serfdom that characterize Jim crow segregation and those monuments into a trench so I think to be a wasted opportunity to put those things away in a warehouse or melt them down without telling the accounting area that finally begins to do its due diligence against the perpetuation of these terrible ideas as we mentioned you were part of that commission that made recommendations to the city and.

advertisements by the platform supporting the boogaloo in the form of shirts containing Google memes hats military badges containing this kind of material Facebook said through a spokesperson that it had removed the accounts of the three men arrested the spokesperson said that in may the company had updated its violence and incitement policy to prohibit content related to the term Google when accompanied by depictions of armed violence it also said it was preventing these pages and groups from being recommended to others on Facebook critics argue that Facebook hasn't done enough to combat extremist content Daniel Stevens has the tech transparency project a group that seeks to hold large tech companies accountable he said that in April his organization released a report about how the boogaloo movement organizes on Facebook but Facebook didn't take serious actions Stephens argues things and didn't take down these Google groups they're all still available on Facebook now some of the groups have changed their names or have changed many traders are they done a you know a few small things to try to evade detection but essentially they're out there and all these people are anything on Facebook to this day and despite Facebook's pledge to stop recommending these pages Stephens said his teams are recommendations for Bukola groups on Facebook as recently as Thursday Tim Mackey NPR

"Speaking of Devin newness of just got off the phone with a and he's trying to arrange and I think you'll probably be successful a a log on online get together which across from the daily caller who wrote this piece and gave us a lot of information that a they were aware of even me to agree as close as I am with the source so we may be hearing from Mr Ross as well who works again of the daily caller which is I believe Tucker Carlson's organization now here we go on the latest from Devin newness and some of this I was privy to a little of it is new to me but there was that there is this liberal watchdog group that is investigating the trump administration and the Republican lawmakers a number of them last year and they they were paid nearly a hundred and three they paid nearly a hundred and forty thousand dollars to fusion GPS why did they pay that money the fusion GPS then this is the firm that produced the famous P. dossier claiming the collusion conspiracy between the trump campaign and Russia of course so the campaign for accountability pay for research on and on known project according to a sax filings with the IRS and again was Chuck Ross who reported this late yesterday fusion GPS you know good do you need the on that all over again they became worldwide known except everybody with Chuck I mean dad but Robert Muller after the Clinton campaign in the Democratic National Committee hired it through their law firm Perkins coal in early two thousand sixteen for Oppel research opposition research claiming that the trump campaign was colluding with Russia this all came from the DNC and the Clinton campaign now the dossier written by an ex spy from Britain Christopher's no steel was shocked by steel and fusion GPS to journalists literally shopped we got something on trump we want to sell can we shop to members of Congress even officials in the state department the justice department the FBI they all use it is a road map into the feds investigation of the trump campaign it was used as part of the justification to obtain surveillance warrants against the former trump campaign official Carter page now all this Fizer stuff is we're Devon comes in as you know the CIA assumes effect I'm formed in two thousand fifteen by members of another watchdog group that have been aggressively investigating the trump administration citizens for responsibility and ethics in Washington crew is they're called according to Ross they had their fingers all over this to see if a which reportedly fire L. DA filed numerous epic complaints and lawsuits last year published reports criticizing Google I'm investing firm of Black Rock a hundred and thirty eight thousand dollars plus diffusion GPS for work as an independent contractor so these fingerprints are helpful this is according to the group's nine ninety filing so to the group's main targets targets to get to the point here when the secretary department of health and Human Services Alex HR and the former administrator of the environmental protection agency Scott Pruett okay those are a couple of the big targets its two biggest targets in Congress were my crop whose out above Indiana I do believe and Devin newness who was the chairman of the house Intel committee at the time investigating the origins of that federal FBI investigation into trop now munis Devon is we call him he is the guy that did that the forest he succeeded in forcing fusion GPS to turn over its bank records of the committee exposing that it had paid been paid by the trump campaign and the DNC is law firm to produce that dot CA not a lot of this you know but I'm getting to the point one of the group's complaints filed in January of last year with the office of a congressional ethics we had Devon on we had members of the committee all of that used avenues of leaking confidential information about fusion GPS and its founders with that testimony to the committee Glenn Simpson who's the the mastermind behind fusion told the committee that he met with a D. O. J. official you know this name Bruce or only after the two thousand sixteen election however or said he met with Simpson months before the election so on the second complaint March think of two thousand eighteen it accused Devon of leaking text messages to senator mark Warner well not to them but they were messages that Warner exchange with an attorney discussing steel a third complaint in July of two thousand eighteen and got that day right accused evidence of failing to disclose business investments on his personal financial disclosure in fact is one of the most bogus of all these charges now the executive director of the CFA his name is Steven seven Daniel Stevens told roster is firm was not hired to look in the news quote see if they do not hire fusion looking to Devin newness recording with the firm regarding our ethics complaints against Devin newness telling that to the daily caller C. phase ethics complaints were against notice and and those and they fall squarely within the mission to hold public officials accountable however newness tells everybody that see if they collaborated with you know fusion GPS to weaponize the ethics process his words against Republicans so this goes on and on and on with detail after detail after detail skulduggery stuff I'm fusion and steal it and are still reportedly continuing to investigate any trump Russia connections with money from the democracy intelligence product don't you love these names project which is a non profit founded by a former FBI analyst and Dianne Feinstein's whatever staffers by the name of Daniel Jones and this you know democracy integrity project paid fusion GPS three point three million dollars for research services so there's a lot of players here but it all boils down the fusion GPS being involved in something in a project that was on named only until recently well as it goes on it looks like some of these fusion money was used in an investigation of Devon's wife something to undermine her something to to get to Devin ultimately through Elizabeth and Devin is not taken this seven down he's the hero fired off a lawsuit and it's a lawsuit that I can't really get into a lot of stuff in that some bolts right now but I can tell you because it involves the possibility of some local people connected to fusion he's hired a couple of local attorneys to sue these activists alleging a conspiracy a sham designation suit on the ballot those attorneys are a name that you know well captain Peter Cappadonna my kaftan who has his own show at noon on Saturdays here so we've got the campaign for Devin newness soon the group of activists who sought to strip him of his title farmer member this from the two thousand eighteen ballot alleging that they coordinated with a super pac and likely they coordinated with the chance campaign I'm sure the damages campaign so the lawsuit was filed by the caps yesterday news committee is arguing that the fight over his ballot designation as a farmer may not have been as their call to get an organic movement is as presented in two thousand eighteen so there have been four activists name of this lawsuit one of them Michael J. ceiling I know of this guy's a Los Angeles based activist he's a member of Bob southern Californians says southern California Americans for democratic action club also included is a guy by the name of Paul Buchman yeah he's a former farmer into Larry mothers Daniel o'connell who's the executive director of the Central Valley partnership that's a liberal political network that operates here locally and they were all joined by hope Nestle I think the name is nicely who's a Fresno state librarian an offer so the suit alleges that box minute nicely McConnell were recruited by a super PAC called fight back California the file a sham petition for a writ of a mandate to have the California secretary state Alex Padilla remove the word farmer from Devon's ballot designation some you remember this and I hope I'm not getting too we'd be here so back in two thousand eighteen a local television station interviewed box man claiming that he originated the petition to challenge menaces farming to speak out for his fellow farmers he says I never met anyone who would fight back California when he was asked yesterday if here the a and other defendants work for the super pac we never tried to sue or get money he added saying that the attempted to have noticed changes ballot designation before going to court it seems like newness is a guy that just wants to fight back we'll go however team newness is armed word contending that the challenge to these credentials again roughly a month before Bucks McConnell nicely would file their petition by the attacks from the chance camping so then box minutes asked do you work with the chance campaign on the petition and the retired farmer said he never met he didn't know the guy save for one visit to Bucks mensch church during two thousand eighteen campaign so in discussing the new soup with with the media Bussmann stood by this petition from last August you know quote to keep showing pictures of himself out on land it's not genuine box one seven minutes his campaign that's that's one of the issues when asked about the genuineness of Jan's who's a resident of the suburban northwest Fresno shooting TV commercials on farms including one operated by the newness family where he lied about while he was there you know the the Bucks when the murder even wanna respond to it so outside of this issue over Devin's a ballot designation the suit alleges that silly at the direction of a nonprofit known as the campaign for accountability filed a quote despicable request under the California records act to retrieve all emails from noon his wife she teaches elementary school she is a great lady wow what she puts up with raising those long winded she got they got some great daughters it's also alleged this guy's ceiling the publication of emails result in an extensive Arash movies wife and her colleagues as stated in the suit including hateful accusations that they teach bigotry and racism really really so we the suit alleges into primary counts the first is the the the tortures business center parents which is an intentional act of wrongdoing to my knowledge that the harms of business disruptor relationship between the business and the plaintiffs suing team newness alleges that for the defenders those for that I mentioned by filing a bevy of apparently meaningless epics complaints in the petition to remove farmer from the ballot designation harmed the campaign's business activities now a lot of this again has been on earth in part by a truck Ross who were trying to get a hold of from the daily caller and other sources.

"Services to campaigns so-called in-kind contributions to these campaigns than the Federal Election Commission can investigate and bringing action against the companies for violating the rules. It's really hard in these cases, though to know what exactly is going on. If spoke provides a staffer to a campaign is that the same as providing a staffer to a corporation. We think that some investigation needs to be done because we can't see inside the companies we can't see what exactly Facebook or Google or providing to these campaigns. So we've seen widespread usage of tech embeds in two thousand sixteen. What are we expecting to see in twenty twenty? The incentives exist for tech companies to build incredibly close relationships with politicians and elected officials Congress's considering a major privacy legislation that would greatly impact the tech companies now during the midterm elections. Facebook said that it would not offer embeds during the two thousand eighteen midterms. And so I think that they've been worried about the attention on this practice, and so they've stepped back from that practice. However, the job openings are still there that tech companies are offering positions to people to reach out to campaigns in India with the twenty nine hundred elections coming up Facebook has a number of job openings both in India in the US that are advertising positions to reach out to Indian politicians. So if they're doing it in India this year, it saved us whom I think that they would do this in the US in twenty twenty Daniel Stevens is executive director of the campaign for accountability. He says there isn't much evidence that tech companies are taking election interference very seriously. In fact, this summer his team posed as Russian trolls and tried to run ads on Google. Says got through without a problem..
