'Breaking the News' Author Alex Marlow on Free Speech in Big Tech
"We were talking about the Second Amendment, the assault on it, the newsroom uvalde. We can segue very smoothly to the topic of your book breaking the news and the big issue of big tech. Because Elon Musk, the individual, you warned me about that we had so many high hopes of tweeted out, I think it was on Thursday morning or Wednesday night that, yeah, we have to do something about these AR-15s, maybe some special kind of registration or training. And I just tweeted out Elon, you were doing so well. Let's break down this story. The book is breaking the news. You've got to get it from our guest, Alex marlowe breaking the news exposing the establishment media's hidden deals and secret corruption. Where are you at in terms of Twitter, I don't know if you're on truth social, something's happened on true social, my account is now two, 3000 new followers every single day for the last weeks of something exponentials happening there. They're opening it up to Android as well. We had Devin Nunes on the show. We invited president Trump on the show as well. Are we starting to see some glimmers of hope? Or are you still concerned that this is the most powerful weapon on the left has to distort and steal elections? Yeah, it is one of the most powerful for sure. Noteworthy is maybe the most powerful of them all is Google, which president Trump was complaining that Google might be discriminating against true social. And that would be great because I spoke to Donald Trump personally a couple of years ago about the threat of big tech. And he was really obsessed with Twitter and I get why that was his most powerful tool, but for his supporters, the most powerful tools have been Google and Facebook by a mile, Google number one. And so if he's getting fired up about Google assuming he runs for president next time around, that could be a very good thing because he needs to crack the whip on Google who is manipulating elections in a major way, in my opinion. But what's happening is Musk is going to disappoint. If you're a mos super fan, if you think he's some sort of pure guy, he's going to disappoint you in different ways. He does a lot of things and says a lot of things that do make me indicate some of the red pilling is legitimate. I was kind of in the campus at most all performance art to advance his business businesses. I'm not there anymore. I now think he has internalized some of the values you and I have, doctor G, but he's going to keep making mistakes.
Texas DPS Director Breaks Down When Answering 'How Are You Doing?'
"And there was a moment during the press briefing today in which Macron who again is the director of the Texas Department of Public Safety He was asked a little bit of an odd question and it was a CNN reporter who prefaced the question by saying this might be the least well received question here But how are you doing Because he was shaking the entire time and he broke down because he understands what happened and he understands the pain He understands the screw up By the officers there Forget how I'm doing about the parents Are those children Don't forget about me We're not being our officers and stuff like that We've taken oath to uphold the loan protect people At any time something tragic like that We want to know why it happened and if we can do better next time there's a bottom line and call it like it is It is tragic Quite frankly there shouldn't be anybody here Ideally we've been able to identify this guy's a suspect and address it before he even thought about attacking You know on the 24th we don't know why that didn't happen We know that he was engaged in some online conversations with folks We know that we suspect that they haven't confirmed it but they made reference to some posts online that very clearly should have been seen as a red flag We don't know why it wasn't seen as a red flag Now he also pointed out that their investigation is obviously ongoing and they are seeking out other people Now it doesn't mean they're seeking them out because they are a direct threat but maybe they knew something
Attendees Cancel NRA Convention Appearances After Uvalde Shooting
"That's starting for a moment of the NRA because they're having their convention. I noticed that there are some people who have who are going to be there who have canceled apparently who's the guy who's sang American pie. He was supposed to perform. Play Greenwood. Barely even add but is not habits going to do a tape message, but he's not going to be there. Now, the NRA might have considered, I mean, if I were the NRA I would not cancel the convention and my reasoning would be to do that is to concede the point. The left's point that somehow the NRA is responsible for this. I responsible gun ownership is somehow responsible for what happened in uvalde and the opposite is true. In fact, if there was responsible gun possession among some of the people at the school, this would not have happened. Right, and I am a member of the NRA, I a card carrying member. I'm going to actually I need to re sign up. You need to renew. I need to renew my membership, but see the NRA is made up of responsible gun owners across the country. And so I think that you made a point because I said, well, you know, maybe they should have canceled given the circumstances and you said, yeah, but to do that would be to give it to the left, saying that, you know, we are in fact guilty. The problem is the gun. The gun. And that a convention about guns is somehow to blame. Exactly. Of course, this is what the left doesn't really like to accept human evil as residing in
Why Did It Take the Police a Full Hour to Stop the Shooter in Uvalde?
"W and I both saw a short video of uvalde, the parents imploring these law enforcement officials like go in there. There's a massacre underway. We are the parents. We'll go in without guns. And the cops are basically like, you're not helping, step back, and obviously your heart goes with the parents. Yes. Yes. And they had apparently called for back up and back up arrived and as you made the point, the law enforcement officials on the scene were they didn't have tactical gear. Maybe they weren't equipped to be able to kind of go in. Well, and I also made the point that you were like, well, how is it that it takes so long to get these tactical people in there and et cetera, et cetera. This is oval is a very, very sleepy town in South Texas. A lot, a whole lot doesn't go happen every day around there. So people aren't just waiting around to go into a situation like this. Things like this don't happen in little sleepy towns like this, right? So unfortunately, you know, people leave their doors on locked, their cars unlocked. The school left the door unlocked. You know, that kind of thing happens. And so of course, parents were just mortified because number one, apparently this kid was making all kinds of ruckus. For a long period of time, before he even went in the school, apparently he was shooting at some funeral home, I don't know if you heard about this. No. But he was apparently shooting at some people in a funeral home. And then he wrecked his car in some ditch or something. Got out of it, starts shooting just randomly for 12 to 15 minutes before he even went in the school. So I think what the parents were upset about is that listen. This is one guy, one person doing this. Why couldn't you have stopped him before he even went into the school,
What to Expect From the Sussman Trial With Kash Patel
"What are the next steps then? So this trial is going to wrap up. There is a period of time between the conviction and then the sentencing, right? Kind of decision of the jury, and then the sentencing, what can we expect next out of John Durham? What are the targets you think he's going to indict next? And has there been anything in this trial that has really surprised you? Yeah, so next, will the sentencing will be a couple of months away if and when I believe sussman's convicted in the next day or two. After that, we have to remind the audience. He already has another indictment in place in the trial set for this fall of the source to steal, and he also has a multiple count indictment for lying to the FBI at ton of times. And for making up all that Christopher Steele information. So he's got that in the pipeline public already. What I think is next is the joint joint venture conspiracy as John Durham has called it in the federal pleadings in the sussman indenting case that he has multiple other targets. And he has said Rodney joffe, the tech executive that was paid millions of dollars to drum up this false alphabet narrative while they were also drumming up their steel stuff. He has said publicly. He John Durham like Rodney joffe is a target of my ongoing investigation. He has also said in his pleading, these other people in the joint venture conspiracy, all that is, is legalese for a bunch of people have to get together to do this. The FBI, the Clinton campaign, fusion GPS, and these guys like Rodney joffe. And the Jake sullivans of the world. They're all mentioned by title in these pleadings. And they're all under his investigation. So that's why I think he's going to get a couple of FBI agents, and he should get Andy mccabe, who orchestrated this entire thing. And Peter strzok, hopefully, as well, along with fusion GPS and this tech guy Rodney joffe. And if he does all that, that's pretty good work.
More Details Emerge From Uvalde Shooting
"According to the information I have when bortac and tactical teams got there, they want the work. That's it. It was very difficult to get to the guy at a barricaded himself in a room. I don't know if this is validated. I haven't been able to confirm, but they couldn't even get into the building. They couldn't even get into the room where he was in. They couldn't even advance unless they had shields. Because the guy was firing right around. And it would have been no way in the world for them to combat that kind of firepower. If it wasn't for them being able to have shields and bore tech going in and heroic man took a shot to the head, I mean, they like they weren't getting shot. One of the officers took a shot to the head, he grazed him, one of the tactical tactical guys, I believe from bortac, and he ended up being a better man that day. He ended up landing the shots where they supposed to be, and the shooter couldn't get out shots because they were behind shields.

Actor Kevin Sorbo Talks to Dinesh From Israel About His Movie Projects
"Guys, I'm pleased to welcome to the podcast actor director producer Kevin sorbo. You know him for Hercules Andromeda, God's not dead, soul surfer, let there be light. And he's got a whole bunch of projects coming up, which we're gonna talk about Kevin, thanks for joining me. I really appreciate it. You are in Israel. Tell us what you're doing there. I was shooting a documentary, I actually came here about three and a half years ago, I shot a documentary with John Lennox, John Lennox is a retired math professor from Oxford, you know, we as an apologist, he's debated all the great atheists who are like singer and Dawkins and Hitchens and we shot here and it's called against the tie to highly recommend that one. But this time, I'm doing the same type of thing I'm on camera, but I'll be narrating this as well, but it deals with the quest and search for the ark of the covenant. And it's been amazing. I'm working with two gentlemen out here that once worked in an archeological dig right now, which they believe is the site of the Israelites before they lost the Philistines at the site of Shiloh. So they're in an archeological dig in Shiloh right now. And these guys are amazing. I'm really, I'm the audience. I'm the guy that doesn't know most of this stuff, but these guys, I just asked the questions and they just take off. And hopefully it's going to be coming out. Sometime around November. They want to rush and get this thing out there before
NY Times: Uvalde Police Took Over 40 Minutes to Enter School
"There's also a troubling bit of information from Yuval day coming out that the police reportedly, according to The New York Times anyway, and I don't think The New York Times is particularly pro police. So maybe take it with a grain of salt, but the report is that the police took over 40 minutes to enter the building. While he was in there with those terrified children. And we got a mute guys for me. Please mute. The report is that the police, one school safety officer encountered the 18 year old killer. Outside the school, it's not clear according to the reporting if there was gunfire exchanged. There is, and I say this with a heavy heart because I'm pro police. And these are men and women who go to the to go into danger regularly, but you know, one of the catastrophes of Columbine is that those two monsters were able to do whatever they wanted for a long, long period of time. Because the police would not breach the school. And as a result, it is believed that at least one guy bled to death. The teacher, the math teacher, bled out, and he was alive for a long time. And they took forever to get into the building.
Michele Tafoya Expected No Middle Ground Following Uvalde Shooting
"Give me your sort of your perspective as we try to navigate through these very, very difficult times. Sadly, I just knew it was coming in the wake of this horror, I have two kids. I remember they were very young when sandy hook occurred and I just changed my view of what needs to happen in terms of school safety. But I knew this would happen that people would jump in their corners and they'd firmly entrench themselves in their corners and there would be no middle ground. There would be no compromise. And I'm afraid that Congress is not going to do anything because this is an issue around which they can fundraise, which they can battle and point at the other guy and never try to really get something done. So I'm afraid it's going to come down to the locals, the school districts, the states, the cities, the communities, to take care of this issue in the ways that they see fit because Congress is just not going to do anything. I hate the way that one side says you're going to take our guns. Second and second, they're going to take our guns. They want your gun. And the other side simply says, we can't have guns.
Dan Bongino Will Not Speculate About Uvalde Police Response Timeline
"It's on my mind because I saw the Chiron there's a lot of questions about the police response Now I'm not going to contribute to Monday morning quarterbacking until we have all the data and the facts I have a Bon Gino rule and I mean it Until we know what happened it is grotesquely irresponsible for me A guy who did not put his ass on the line to walk in there to criticize what others did Everybody needs to understand that But you know I was a law enforcement officer myself and my actions when I was there were open to scrutiny as well The only reason I talk about it is because it is in the news There was apparently a bit of a delayed response Now what happened I don't have all that data yet And again it would be grossly irresponsible For me someone whose butt was in a seat while this was going on To criticize people without the facts I will tell you though that in my experience with discussing this with school security professionals including my friend Jeff from yesterday who do this for a living That the reason a lot of it is being scrutinized and we'll get some answers later on Is because post Columbine there was a new guiding ethos on how to respond to these school shooting incidents The days of old before Columbine the thought was established a perimeter secure the perimeter negotiate Again I'm oversimplifying but it's accurate You talk to people who are in S.W.A.T. hostage rescue They'll tell you that Establish a perimeter secure perimeter and no one goes in or out negotiate guy comes out hands up it's diffused right Well after Columbine where they figured out that these people had no intention these two killers at all of coming out they were just going to kill everyone they could The whole model on how to respond to active shooter incidents changed It was you go you get in there forget the perimeter and you neutralize that target as soon as possible
Democrat Gun Laws Encourage More Crime
"And John, I tell you, I love that you came on because we need experts to talk about these things. You know, I could talk about them from passion and my expertise as a former police officer and just the stuff that I've dealt with when I was growing up. And you know, it is very, very troubling. With the stats that you have given in the things that you have, you know, relate to the people who are listening that the government is completely feckless when it comes to making proper decisions on gun legislation. I personally believe that we should have less laws, we should have more gun ownership because it is proven as a fact that most people who possess firearms are doing the right thing with it and their law abiding citizens. There's a small group of the population that are out here killing people. No, I mean, that's exactly right. I mean, you have a very small percentage of the population that just commits crimes over and over and over again. And the problem that you have with a lot of these laws is that it's primarily the most law abiding good citizens who obey them. So if we kind of bring this back to the gun free zone stuff that we were talking about at the beginning. And that is, you know, you say you're not allowed to take a gun into a certain area. Well, who pays that? It's the most law abiding citizens. In fact, it actually serves as a magnet for the bad guys because the bad guys know that victims there won't be able to go and fight fast and depend themselves. So it's an attractive place for the criminals to go.
Recession Looms as the Fed Promises Multiple 50 Basis Points Hikes
"We need to fix our economy. I realize the Federal Reserve is trying this trying, but you know what? It's too darn late. I'm sorry guys, you should have done this way earlier. Now we're here hiking by multiple 50 basis point hikes, and that's going to have a suppression style effect on the economy, which I believe is going to head us into recession. I predicted 85% chance we're going to be in recession by the end of this year into early next year. I do think the oil prices are going to continue to escalate despite what they're doing in part because of what's happening overseas in Russia. And Ukraine, you just take in all that oil off the market. I realize that the president of the United States wanted to constantly blame Russia for the hike in energy and food prices, but let me just say you ain't seen nothing yet. I mean, that was, that hasn't even kicked in fully. It will believe me, it absolutely will, but one of the reasons we're also seeing this, one of the reasons we're also seeing this is because this administration has refused to recognize the reality that we need to be energy independent. They think you can flip a switch and suddenly everybody's going to be driving a Tesla. Oh, they don't want you to harm the Tesla. Forgive me. Elon Musk is on the is on the naughty list right now. So they think that somehow we're all going to switch to EVs tomorrow. That's not going to happen. Crude oil at a 110 bucks a barrel, trading up about a percent in today's trading, that's going to continue going higher. I've predicted a $130 by the height of the summer driving season. We could very well see it because we're taking all that oil off the market, all that neck gas off the market, I'm not saying we shouldn't have. I realize you got to do what you got to do, right? In times like we're seeing right now, but gosh, to not have an alternate plan, I mean, guys, what do you think and
Who's Winning in the GOP? Devin Nunes Weighs In
"What is the correlation of forces? What is the balance of power between the old establishment, the old Republican rhino establishment that looked at president Trump as an anomaly, something that they can get beyond and get back to work, you know, with doing FTSE under the table with the Democrats. What is the relationship between the old establishment that doesn't care for maga? And the new maga America first center of gravity. Who's winning? Is it too early to say and what needs to happen next? Well, I think we're now ultra Mecca, right? Yes. Ultra magnet now. You're like the leader of ultra magnetic. We have it's the most popular item on our website, guys. As soon as they came up after 6 months of focus groups and million spent allegedly the old man in The White House came up with it, we said, okay, that's great. The ultra maga T-shirt with president Trump. So we understand that this is going to backfire just as badly as deplorables did. That wasn't an insult. That was wholeheartedly embraced by the movement. So yes, they don't get it. They don't understand the narrative of why we believe in America. But when it comes to our side of the aisle, what's the power play? Who's winning? Well, look, I don't think there's really nobody wins when we fight amongst ourselves. And if you look at it really, there's very few people that are out there that are against the so called maga maga movement or ultra maga. Or basically just kind of getting back to kind of normal conservative values. And I think you've seen a lot of those folks that were that way. They're retired or they're going to they're not going to win. They're going to lose. They're
Jeff James: The Importance of Locked Doors in Dangerous Situations
"Just like in schools there's nothing There is no bill that's going to stop a kid with a psychopathological disorder All the time from trying to kill people you're not what you can do is you can buy time Time buys you to power to think the power to think gives you the opportunity in the fog award to make a decision And the decision enables you to live So that's where a school security officer comes in The guy's not going to be he man He's not Batman There's a good chance that he may sadly or she get killed But again if they engage the target it buys you time A man trapped or you described by you time A simple act and I'd like you to get into this because you mentioned that on my show's best weekend Of locking a door can buy you time too because what did you find out about locked doors in your research on this Yeah so it's one of the things I brought up last week that I don't know it looks like the pattern still holds up in yesterday's incident But no child has died in a school shooting if they were behind a locked door unless they were injured before they got behind the door So look these people don't want the exception is unless it's a targeted act If it's a workplace shooting and you were the boss who fired me and I'm coming to find you I might try to shoot my way through that door if I know you're in your office But if I'm deranged and all I want is a high body count I'm not going to waste the time trying to get through a locked door when I can find a target rich environment where people are in the halls or people in a playground or in the cafeteria So yeah getting behind a locked door and hiding and staying quiet we have found that that is in these incidents a true lifesaver
Jeff James: We Can Use Patterns to Train Students for Shootings
"Do you know the last time a child died in a school fire in America It was December 1st 1958 was the R later the angel school in Chicago fire breaks out And I'll make the long story short The nun is pretty much said hey let's just stay here the firemen will rescue us Well that went tragically wrong 92 pupils and three nuns lost their lives At that point was when they started to mandate changes about the biggest thing is fire drills monthly fire drills You'll take a kindergartner who starts school in September by Christmas They've been through three or four fire drills and they would know where to go if the teacher wasn't in the room And the fire alarm still goes off It doesn't mean they're not scared It means they've learned a pattern You can't really train elementary students like you can't high school kids to react to these kind of shootings But you can have a little touch points with them that say hey we're going to practice we're going to practice where to hide if a bad guy gets in here Or I used to tell the gym teachers If you have a wood line around your school play a game a couple of times at the beginning of the year with the kids saying hey I'm going to time you running to the woodline and back So you see who does it in under a minute So if that shooter is outside will those kids are outside for recess or for gym class and someone says run to the wood line and hide in the wood line They know where to go They've heard it a couple of times So while we can't train them to the level of adults we can certainly give them touch points that are going to that they can pull on again in the future in those moments of high stress and high anxiety and fear
Jeff James: The Benefit of Reconfiguring a School Lobby
"Great Something as simple as configuring your lobby so that you have a captured entrance So if somebody gets through that first door say the person who's giving admittance is the secretary right Somebody pushes the button and says hey I'm here to pick up my kid They come through that first door And at that point the secretary sees something untoward That way they're trapped in there They would need to be granted access through that second door before they could gain entry to the building And look they can shoot through the glass and walk through like Lanza did it at sandy hook But what that does is buy some time And the other thing I advocate in all schools I coordinate security with is anyone in your school district should be able to call a lockdown I don't care if it's a maintenance guy if it's a secretary if it's a superintendent They should have a mechanism in place where if your maintenance guy sees a guy walking across your parking lot with a rifle he should be able to hit a button on his phone or get to a hard button or something and let everybody know to lock down right now Because if that secretary sees it but she has no mechanism to fix the problem then it's still that it's still a failure So yeah there are some cost low cost solutions that are sustainable that can be put in place And look you get it We talked about armored glasses heavy and it's hard and it's extremely expensive but it doesn't need to be all that There are other mitigations you could other things you could put in place that are almost cost free And the biggest one is training And you've heard me hit this button before It has to be a consistent constant thing that you're doing in your district several times a year to train your people to say not only this is what we're looking for if we see a guy with a gun But this is what we're looking for in behaviors Now people don't just snap In every one of these school shootings what always comes out their social media that they glorified Hitler that they glorified Columbine There is a clear pattern of behavior that leads people to the path toward violence that if you know what you're looking for it's easy to see

They like cookie cutter like cut out like scallop or they layered. Because i'm looking at the pictures of them. Yeah yeah so. I like to do is take a take a pretty good medium potato appeal it you chop the the ends off and then usually if it's a medium patel you get about two cylinders out of it you cut that in half and then you take whichever half is the most even. It's usually where you made the cut in the middle And then you just give plop. 'em down wilson With oil initially as a cast. Iron pan you finish them in the oven the whole thing. If you want like eight of those little cylinders just get four potatoes. Got it got it and like ben said. Let us know your favorite potato recipes. <hes> we're still working on getting sorta you don't pick. It'd be that difficult but i promise it'll happen. I'm in the meantime.

Oh no freedom fries so late. i'll also. I love the idea. I love to hear about the way. American cuisine is depicted early. Us cuisines depicted in other parts of the world store. One time that had an american. I'll and it was just junk food and peanut butter and one like very sugary cereal. That's hilarious. That's almost like a this. i'll i love it. It was a distract from the grocery store. And we all know this. Probably from the movie pulp fiction or from from travels or whatever but in belgium. They don't put ketchup on their french fries about mayonnaise. And i have adopted that and i think it's awesome. are triggered by mayonnaise. But it's good fries and mayonnaise. Quick etowah. i'll do. It's terrible for your Cheese sauce.

Yes highly recommended and thank you to parmentier for popularizing the potato because you know in my head that means that. He is in some way responsible for all of the potato recipes that you're produced after that point. You know so. Thank you parmentier potato man. Another thing that maybe blue but potatoes keep for quite a long time just out. You know what. I mean like out in a bowl in a dish on your on your kitchen counter before they start to get gross or like growth even when they do grow those little is there's a little tubers.

"What i think is amazing about. This is the more we looked into this knoll. The more. I was convinced this guy was like a earlier version of norman borlaug. I had this series. I did a while ago. Years and years ago animated series called stuff of genius which was all about inventors and the inventions that changed the world. and norman. Borlaug is a guy who was like parmentier ta he was an agronomist and he is often called the father of the green revolution he went on to save over like a billion people from starvation and parmentier was doing a very similar thing with the potato. He he has a legacy that remains with us today. There he's like you know. I think it was atlas obscure the called him like the johnny appleseed of the tater toy. Yeah no it's absolutely accurate it was it was that outlets obscure article Specifically jim clark made that excellent comparison. I love that and it's totally true. he is to this day remembered in. You know the culinary tradition of french cooking. There are quite a few dishes that are named after him. One of my favorite soups in the whole world potato and leek super version of that called Taj parmentier which is exactly just that you can find a recipe for poor montage party. On the farmer's almanac just look for potato leek soup recipe on the farmer's almanac and will give you a little bit of history There's also like a version of this served cold. It's called the gift. She soi not not not for me. Not into a cold soup. But i'm not. I'm not a gazpacho guy. But i love a good hot potato in leek soup and there's another one called hot cheese parmentier. That's a lot like a shepherd's pie. You know with like different ground beef and vegetables and corn and stuff. Of course you know topped with mashed potatoes and Hopefully some nice Crisp cheese and this. This is where we find ourselves today. According to the united nations potato is grown in virtually every country that can do so in some in some form or fashion and some scale and that makes it the world's fourth most important food crop so go you potato and thank you peru out and speaking of peru bet. I didn't realize the peruvians also had like a method for freeze. Drying potatoes to keep themselves like in in potatoes in case there was a blight or a crop shortage and those freeze dried potato. Flakes are kind of the lake early version of what we know. Today is instant mashed potatoes. Gary i remember reading that that's pretty. That's pretty amazing. As well and that just goes to show you how long or how long people impro- had been working with this native produce. No although i know it's the end of our story in this episode is Has been going a little bit long. There is one last myth. I believe we absolutely must bust or we must at least address. Which is i. I went to belgium a while back. You remember that. I was in brussels for and one of the one of the things that my friends told me as we were landing on the plane is you don't call them. French fries can ask for palm free right fried potatoes but do not call french fries because you see folks both france and belgium claim to be the inventors of what we call french fries in the us and people are still going back and forth because now it's become a matter of national pride. Just say fries. Just say palm free in france or in belgium be very careful with it yeah freed sisterly means like fries In home is the french word for potato..

"Maybe and then you just wipe the skin off with a paper towel or kitchen rag and it just comes right off and then you sli some and i swear they're the most i don't know how would you describe describe it as earthy kind of grassy but also sweets and Really really nice. Yeah and you can do these in slices. as well. like roasted beets way to go. You can make that your own. I would say. I typically do it for like thirty five minutes or so. Thirty five forty Just because i like him sukree through time on there. You know what i mean in some bit of salt and pepper anyway. Yes parmentier was really into sugar. We think beats get a bad name you'll parsnips are pretty good too. Although i don't think parmentier worked with them parsnips. i've had a hard time with. I've never cooked them. Evelyn tried them a couple of times. And i've always found that. I've undercooked them that they're very tough. And i think you really have to get them just right. Yeah there's a there's a way to roast them but they can be. they could be a little bit finicky. We can't wait to hear more of your specific Food recipes from history. But like we said napoleon is digging parmentier these like the napoleon is thinking all right this guy more potato guy than the royalist so he'll help us with this. Oh help us. Speech sugar and corn in fact. Napoleon is enough of a fan of parmentier that eventually. He gives him the legion of honor. Sort of like the presidential medal of freedom. Or something right yeah. It's it's similar. The legion of honor is the highest order of merit. You can get in france whether you are military or a civilian. It was established in eighteen. O two by napoleon himself very cool. Well i think well deserved. I don't know there's nothing particularly problematic in this dude story right which i thought was kind of interesting because usually there's some agenda or even simply takes off. It's usually being done for some like weird nefarious purpose. But this guy just rely again he. He came from suffering this. This whole experience came from him being jailed or imprisoned by the prussians during the war and him realizing that potatoes were getting a bad rap and that he actually just really liked them and If you read his letters and his writings about potatoes you can really tell. The guy just really liked potato one and everyone else to as well and saw the potential for it in a world where food wasn't for everybody or at least abundance of food wasn't for everybody you know was reserved for the upper classes and i don't think he pre approved approved of that he wanted to you know. Have everyone be fed and believe that everyone deserves to have a full belly. So i think that's pretty awesome. Yeah agreed ed after he was granted. This legion of honour. He passed away peacefully in eighteen thirteen. Who was seventy six years old buried in paris in. If you go there even today you will see that his plots his grave is surrounded by potato plants and some people when they go to visit. They leave a potato on his grave. As as a way of saying thank you..

"Thought it was the most disgusting thing in the world described it as like eating a chewy ball of snot or something like them and your knoll and today we are talking about snails. But maybe not in the way you expect. We'll touch on s cargo here and there but steals steals are pretty common creature. They're also fascinating. They grow some people out. You know some people think of them as moving boogers. They in to you know the slime and the way the texture of their skin is and so on but what on earth good snails have to do with the idea of communication. Because max knoll and us listening home myself. We're all pretty lucky to be alive in a time where there are instantaneous. means of communication across the world. But as we're going to see today the idea of a global communication network is much older than the internet. In fact there was a french occultist in the eighteen fifty s who thought he could build a communication network with. Get this snails It's true you knew you were gonna get there somehow. Communications snails french occultist. What else do you want. I wanna be a french occultist. That sounds like a cool gave true. The guy in question is one. Jacques to saw ben wa whose experiments in the eighteen fifties with snails lead to something referred to as a snail. Telegraph pass olympic sympathetic. Compass like snow sexy but definitely sounds fancy. What is it ben. what is it. So here's the idea. In short summed up by john. Browley where i'd even for wired Brownlee says been wa is convinced that any two snails. That have hooked up our forever in telepathic contact for the rest of their life regardless of the distance between them and to him. This means that if you touch one than the other one the meat will move. And so based on. This concept makes some gadgets. Wire calls them contraptions. They're essentially like picture. Twenty four snails glued to the bottom of a bull and each of them is embiid was design representative of a letter of the alphabet and their. Yes you're right folks. There are two missing letters. We get to those nabet way so glued to the bottom of a bull who when letters on the top sort of like a weird snail typewriter. Yes yeah in a weird and weirdly incomplete stale typewriter transaction flintstones. Gadgetry right there yeah. He was convinced that you could touch letters key in letters. Let's just say on one set of snails and the other set of snails however far away they might be would move of so that the person on the other end of the gadget could decode. Whatever message are intending to send. Yeah staley graph which is weird. Is we call conventional mail snail mail now but this snail graph was if it worked would be much faster than telegraph of tie-break so at this point been was trying to do the telegraph version of building a better mouse trap. The telegraph is already around and when we look at the modern day what we see is pretty amazing like no better where we are now in the world and we've learned this recording this podcast on the road and during a pandemic no matter where we are we can use various platforms to communicate with each other to even record our show. And that's a really recent development in the you know in the history of humanity. But it's something that has its origins in pretty basic scientific principles and as smithsonian maggie points out. These were i manifest in the good old eighteenth century. Electric telegraph ditz and dashes. We talked about this in the past. The story behind morse code is really sad. Oh god and it's been so long. I forget the sad part. Well the The death of samuel morse's wife was the real impetus or inspiration work of telegraph. God well thankfully. I don't think any tragedy led into ben wa coming up with this The snail a graph. I think it was more perseverance and kooky stick to it of nece really interesting so he believed that. These snails could transmit like sympathetic current. Isn't that right. I mean it was some form of like electrical transmission. I mean we would look at it as almost like telepathy right Essentially is what he's describing but he tried describe it and more scientific terms but again the guy was kind of a mystic cultist and apparently makes sense. There's a really great article in gizmodo. The man who tried to telegraph may have telepathic snails. Some mouthful of the headline by esther english arkell the eighteen. Hundreds were a really like golden time to be an occultist It was sort of like the swing of the pendulum in the other direction. After years and years of which burning and fearing the devil in seeing is evil lurking around every corner it became kind of a time where paranormal exploration and magic and kind of the combination of science and magic were very popular And there was a lot of belief even just kind of regular old folks in seances and like the efficacy of sound says and looking into things like fairies and gnomes and all of that and benoit's was squarely in this camp so while he you know does attempt to explain the snail phenomenon in relatively scientific terms comparing it to the telegraph. He clearly was coming at it from a place of kind of you know weird ephemeral mysticism as well.

Yeah yet to be very clear about it. Ben wa was not a scientist per se but also wasn't wealthy eccentric so this meant that because he didn't have a ton of cash and he didn't have a ton of rigorous research that he needed to convince other people to help him. He needed. Help funding this idea but before we get to that. Let's dive into what he thought was going on. So as you said he believed there was a some sort of sympathetic or current between snails like after they hooked up basically after they made it and he beleaguered ben. Have you seen snails meeting Leg up close video like any nature documentaries of snails meeting. I believe. I have in the past. But it's it's not one of my go-to youtube clips. It's not nor should it be willing to behold the bring it up is because there's a really cool movie by documentary by a french filmmaker whose name is escaping me but also did the the film winged migration and it's called micro cosmos and. It's like all this amazing kind of macro photography of like insects and one of the scenes Pairs these snails just going at it or they like to become one. They're like arriving together. And make this weird georgia o'keefe looking Array while this gorgeous opera music is playing in the background. It's simultaneously kind of and kind of hilarious because it looks ridiculous but also like very psychedelic. Strange in the music is really sets it off. But i'm sorry about had to bring up snails meeting at checkout that clip. It's on youtube. So been walled obviously was watching stales mate and as i was saying he believed that this meeting process resulted in an exchange of what he called sympathetic fluids and that big change of these fluids connected these sales in a way that made them mentally inseparable he thought of it as an invisible an invisible string something between a string and fluid that emanated from one snail to the other kind of natural telegraph cable but this provided instinct communication in his mind regardless of the environment between them so you can put them on ocean away. It wouldn't matter one could be on a mountain. one could be in deep cavern. They would still be able to have that vibe with each other and the way these are snails so we can't ask them to say gas a number or sing a song right instead. He just has to physically stimulate either by poking them like we said like literally tapping them like a weird snail typewriter or shooting them with a little electric current that referred to this phenomenon. This kind of like sympathetic psychic connection with these fluids. I don't understand how fluids interact with each other. You the fluids camera with travel Speech i guess that's true. It's not just to understand rapper. Heads around he termed this phenomenon. S car godet commotion. Which i just love. I'm going to start using that in In my regular coverages and maybe start a band called esker gotta commotion either way. This was the basis of this whole thing. He considered this to be against this amazing outlets obscure article. He considered this to be some sort of evolutionary loophole and he really believed in this phenomenon he partner as well at american which is weird. Who has a very french sounding name. Monsieur biard cuts yeah But americans somehow though yeah yeah this is this is interesting though because some researchers believe that been wa made this guy up out of whole cloth never was another person from two to communicate with or maybe he was embellishing his story a little bit but yes. He said he had a partner. He also didn't just see some snails mating and thought i should try to turn these guys into the alphabet instead. He was building off this earlier. Concept that's very. Hr geiger as a phrase flesh telegraphs fifteen hundreds but then also earlier just a few decades earlier in eighteen thirty nine. A guy named william o'shaughnessy an irish doctor and a fan of marijuana had experimented with the idea of using human skin to transmit and receive electrical signals. Which is interesting because we know that. That is a thing i mean. That's the reason for example like touched lamps work and like touchscreens. Some collectively between you know we have a glove on the screens. Not gonna work. You have a glove on like one of those touch lamps isn't going to work so it is about kind of using the human body as conduit for these types of signals. I mean it's like it's not current. That's going to shock you but we do know the human body can transmit these kinds of impulses yeah vibes. It's not just an amazing film starring jeff goldblum arbor. Everett's here ridiculous history is quite a banger. I highly recommend checking it out. You mentioned fifteen hundreds but in the fifteen hundred the flesh telegraph. I guess that were kind of being kicked around then involved fish. Yeah yeah that's that is true. It's strange because everybody was trying to add. various points. Create some communication device like this. And i think it tells us something illuminating about the human condition since before the dawn of recorded history people were obsessed with trying to talk with one another. You know what. I mean like in general so it makes sense that people would try to find novel solutions to the old problem of communication over distance. Whether it's fish whether it's snails whether it's human flesh there were there. Were throwing a lot of stuff at the wall here. Can we address the elephant in the room or the the massive dead snail in the room. The longevity of this does not really compute for me. Like i ask how you got to keep replacing snails. I mean what you used if you feed them. It's like it's like having a pet. It's like maintaining an aquarium. I guess you can keep alive for a long time. But like a first of all when i first heard this. I'm picturing snails lined up back to back to back to back to back over a long long distances like literally snail telegraph but again these were supposedly psychic snails. So yes you only had to about twenty five of them on each end for the alphabet so you know you have one died but then you have to make them again. Just seems like a whole homework assignments. Because he'd have to be based on the lifetime of the snails you'd have to be constantly ready to ship out a new receiver to whatever romeu remote location. The other receiver was originally at. And that's every time a snail passes away It's also i guess people could if this were to save money by using these keyboards for as long as they could. But it'd be like typing with a broken typewriter. Eventually start missing really important letters like e or some some other vowel. Otherwise i love. The snow is actually longer than i thought. Apparently in the wild they can live two to seven years but in captivity they can actually live ten to fifteen years or even longer. If they're like you know properly fed and watered so okay i retract my my b but there are there are copious other beefs to be had with this situation. Yeah but i. I don't think you necessarily should because you still the point remains you still have to cycle it out. Maybe just not as often some might assume but look. They need help. They need credibility and they need cash. This pair of people represented by been walked so been wall starts putting the charm on this guy who manages a gymnasium in paris. His name is mon suits riot. And he convinces this dude to let him live like to pay for him to live somewhere and give him a stipend to work on snail telegraph. He also beguiled.

The does this sort of unveiling thing on october. Second of eighteen fifty and is all at the behest of trio. Who very much wants to i. Guess get his money's worth from his investment. I'm so at this point. The design of the snail graham consists of like a scaffold situation using a ten foot beam with these zinc bowls. I don't know why it needed to be zinc because of you probably had his reasons zinc is i know. Very conductive with the snails glued using copper sulfate. I can't think i feel like we're bearing leo. This does seem very friendly to the snails. Not that like snails. Snails feelings right. I think this would be terrible. It's reminds me of the the way fleas were treated in those really messed up. Macabre flea circus. We talked about with With gabe or turn spit dogs. I think would be another example. Yeah the snails well. Being isn't Isn't really entering into been waugh's calculations and the contraption becomes increasingly complex and increasingly expensive as they dive into it eventually. They ended up with as we said. Forty-eight snails overall twenty four separate couplings into those zinc bowls. They're glued on this wooden board next to these alphabet symbols. We said earlier. There were four snails but not twenty six. That's because this is in french and infringe the letters w and k are often only used for words that are loaned from other languages. And that's where the author of this post on the generalist academy says the. That's where the discrepancy comes from lake. They it would have been seen as somewhat extraneous to have that w and kate also also patently less french because the french take language very seriously so they were not even further. Those letters that we don't use those except for those trash american words. You need them. Get rid of him right. So there's another thing that i think stood out to a lot of folks who are listening log at home it's this. How'd you know you have a positive connection right.

What counts is a signal that someone mashed be. it's unfortunately it's kind of interpretive. I would assume it just goes bing or a little green light lights up on the snails head on. Its little tentacles tentacles. Not what do you call those things there. And derek tentacles. They're kind of antenna meet tentacles the little wiggly things on their heads And that is how you get gauged it or at least how he claimed you could gauge it. If you tapa snail on one of the ends the corresponding mated snail on the other end would wiggle. Its tentacles sympathetically. Yeah counts as a wiggle. How you differentiate that from you know a regular stale wiggle just like you still can adjusting. Snails are always pretty wiggly you ask me Those little tentacles are always kind of flopping around willy. Nilly so that's the basic idea and he attempts to demonstrate. There's like we said this. I guess you'd call it like a press conference really go very. He's been kind stringing trio along right this whole time. He claimed that he had been in communication with his. Maybe imaginary friend. I've got a research partner. You wouldn't know him. He goes to another because he lives in.

Not very loosely was very, very, very much based on okay, all right, to the point when they said, because they taped it. One night, they used to set the tape recorder going and they would tape the movie's midnight movies. And then they would look at all the commercials so they could make fun of the commercials, you know, do You know Saturdays in the commercials during their show Kentucky Fried Theater show that they did, and then they saw this and they started to speed through it to get to the commercial and said Wait a second. Any sort of watching it And they said, Oh my God, This is great, And so they started doing they wrote the screenplay and then when they finally got the go ahead, they said. To their agents. What we kind of based it's sort of on this thing. Zero hour. Do you think we need to get the rights to it? And the agent watch zero hour and looked at the script and said, No, you definitely so so they looked all over and they couldn't find they got half the rights, but they couldn't find him anywhere and it was getting down choir. And they had to have the rights, but they didn't know. Where are they? Where are they? And then? Finally, it was, like one little guy back in the in the copyright room or whatever said, huh?

You've got to find the combination. It's like one of those Rubik's cubes. You know you're moving around.

"Ads South Carolina accusing Bernie Sanders of trying to undermine president Obama's twenty twelve reelection campaign by threatening a primary challenge to him back in Washington there was one guy with another plan I think it would be a good idea all president Obama faced some primary opposition Bernie Sanders was seriously thinking about challenging our first African American president in a primary now it's important that Sanders and said this is not true but in this state it's a really charged message with such a heavily black democratic electorate here and that's a group that's on top of mind for a lot of candidates in the state yeah and I was my I want to bring you in on this where where are you all by the way I can hear a lot of noise but yet we're actually at the filing centers so we're here on the campus of where these debates can occur got it so people are kind of setting up their own TV life it's behind everybody getting ready for all the action tonight okay so back to the the black electorate that we just heard wanna talking about their this is been Joe Biden's thing is has been that he feels he has support among black voters he has talked about Serra South Carolina in particular and how he thinks he will win that slice of the electorate they just talked about it as a firewall for his whole candidacy how much is at stake for him tonight in this debate I think so much is at stake for him in more him perhaps than any other candidate I mean as you mentioned he has long been insisting that he would do better once this race moved on to more diverse states that's initially what they were saying then we saw how poorly he finished in Nevada and now the arguments will do better once this race is on Tuesday with a sizable African American population if he does not have a decisive win in South Carolina I just think his arguments around electability become really hard to sell moving forward and and look I mean I think this is worth pointing out that this is not just a contest ahead of the South Carolina primary this is going to be the last debate before super Tuesday and so you know at that point he's really trying to sort of square should some of Sanders momentum and you know as wanna say he has been criticizing Bernie Sanders more so in recent days and not just for this possible you know alleged primary challenge to Barack Obama during his second term but also for the fact that he thinks the Vermont senator has a really ambitious list of public policies that he is not being truthful about how he will pay for these without raising taxes on the middle class and we should note that Joe Biden far from the only candidate who has his sights set on Bernie Sanders tonight right wanna yeah that's right former south bend Indiana Merope the judge spoke here last night he essentially is making the case that Bernie Sanders being the nominee would hurt Democrats down the ballot that he isn't espousing an inclusive politics on the to the may share some of the same ideals must have been hearing a lot from former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg he looked online he's been tweeting all day about his fight for gun safety legislation and how he's taken on the national rifle association while saying that Sanders record on gun is not strong but I my bloomers and hunker down in debate prep off the campaign trail for days so we'll be waiting to see if he launches a new attack on Bernie Sanders let lately they've been telegraphing operate because Bloomberg's first debate performance was I think fair to say pretty rocky highs senator Elizabeth Warren really went after him Osmar respecting same thing for her tonight I I think that we'll all be watching really interesting curiosity what she's doing is she had been going for the unity angle for a while prior to that last debate but she unleashes you mentioned on several other candidates especially Bloomberg and you know in recent days it appears that she's been keeping up that fighting spirit do you plan or do you fight back is is is I think what's more interesting to me even though maybe Mike Bloomberg is this perfect foil for her message on income inequality is does she finally director fire at Bernie Sanders they certainly have some overlapping support amongst progressive voters but you know she he is the front runner and the last debate it did not seem like his rival saw him that way we will watch and see that is NPR's awesome holiday and one of summer's reporting there from South Carolina thanks you too you're welcome thanks president trump is on his way

I. A. officials in their mission and some of these foreign countries were frequently at odds with the ambassador now the CIA officers in the country technically work under the ambassador the ambassador is the chief of mission but I'm aware of any number of circumstances in which the ambassador's very clearly do get involved in playing favorites in foreign elections one eight six six five oh Jimbo one eight six six five oh five four six two six hello is this do you think going to keep playing out as long as Donald Trump is in office I think what they were trying to do Jim is to bring it to a head in the house before the end of the year and you may recall that the impeachment of president Clinton occurred on in the house on December nineteenth now that was not on a like that was not right before an election year he had already been reelected but I think that the Democrats are under a lot of pressure to get this thing done in the house so that they can claim that we did not do it in a lecture near so I think there's there there's a lot of pressure to do that I also think to be honest with you that some of these Democrats are having some serious second second thoughts about what they're doing because it's it's just not catching hold so far they tried for weeks now to press this issue of a quid pro quo most people don't really know what that means so they're now shifting gears and using more more scary more frightful words saying put pro quo they're using bribery and extortion which of course have nothing to do our president can dance for an affair we list because we will be back in just a moment do your eyes on the road.
