"All right folks, welcome back. It's miracle Monday and the taxa show talking to doctor Jerome corsi about his book, the Shroud codex, a thriller that gives us intimate extraordinary details of this thing called now known as the Shroud of Turin. And there's so much forensic evidence in this cloth that that's what I find amazing. It's incredible. And as I said, I've seen it three times in person. I've had a press credentials in the last three exhibitions. I've got to study it for hours. And really have it affect my soul. I mean, it made an impact on me. Emotionally, it made an impact on me religiously. I mean, I've always believed in Jesus Christ, but it finally, none of the evidence in this book to say this is a photograph of the moment of the resurrection. And it's a photograph that is not taken in a normal photograph. It's a negative, but only the very top layers of the fabric are seared on the cloud, the cloth. Of the Sean turn. It's like an image that went radiant. At the moment of resurrection, the body went suspended radiant and the cloth was burned from the, as it were, I think, the sudden exceptional moment. Probably instantaneous instantaneous, extremely high heat of radiation, transcendental moment. It's a moment that in physics would be at the edge of an event transition. It's when you go from one dimension to another. That type of a singularity, the event horizon of a black hole. But you, we have to talk about these people who say it's a hoax. Many of them said, oh, it was painted. It's a medieval forgery, but what you say very clearly is there is no paint. The fibers have been looked at through innumerable microscopes. There is zero paint accounting for the image. In 1978, there was a group of scientists that were a group of scientific analysis of the Shroud. It was a, they took about a year to do it. I know many of the people who were on that and that scientific trip, I communicate with them. There's a Shroud group on the Internet that I watch and follow, but I know these people and I've interviewed them. And they studied the Shroud. There is no paint on the Shroud. It's not a painted image. And no one's been able to duplicate the image or even come close. Today, the idea that it was a medieval forgery came from the carbon dating, but the carbon dating was again flawed. There was a small piece of the edge of the Shroud that was taken for the carbon carbon dating. And that had been re woven in the medieval times when there had been a fire. It had damaged the Shroud. And so the medieval cotton was in the sample that they took, and that was what drew the carbon dating off. And there's been, I constructed this book as a novel. And the novel is really about a priest who dies and comes back to life with a mission. And he begins to suffering the effects of the as if he were Christ being crucified. So he goes through these kind of transcendental moments where his body is being exhibiting the scourging, exhibiting being nailed to the cross and his mind is back at that moment. He is Jesus on that moment. Now, just to help the audience understand where you're getting this idea from, there have been in the history of the Catholic Church, these men and women who have suffered ostensibly what are called stigmata. In other words, their hands are bleeding as though with the nail wounds of Christ, padre pio is the most famous in our lifetimes who suffered this. There's controversy around that, but folks like you and me believe that in most cases, this was real, that this was an extreme evidence of holiness that somebody would suffer the wounds of Christ. Well, and also, I mean, so my main character is a psychiatrist in New York, but doctor cassel, who and I've had a lot of experience with psychiatrists. I did a lot of work on terrorism. My life and background have been so complex. I'm not sure anyone will ever put it all together. But I had an international group of psychiatrists that I worked with for years on terrorism. I got to know them very well. They wanted me to be a psychiatrist. I chose not to. But the point is, the psychiatrist is not a believer. He's an atheist. But he's close to the Catholic Church in New York, and so the archbishop of New York recruits him. This is the character in the book. In the book, doctor cassel, to interview this priest, because the priest is now beginning to become a sensation. He's exhibiting the wounds of Christ, he's being hospitalized. The wounds heal very quickly. And he seems to be having now spiritual powers. He didn't tell people things about their lives. He's being to cure people. And the church, including the Vatican, says we got to know where this is real or not. Is this guy a psychotic? Is this a psychotic episode? Or is this happening? So they recruit a very top psychiatrist in New York. It was an atheist to basically interview the priest and find out whether it's real or not real. And doctor cassel, the psychiatrist, fictional, begins with the presumption that this priest is suffering some kind of an erotic episode. And this is not real, but it's a psychosis that manifesting itself in physical symptoms. And what happens is as he begins as doctor castle begins to investigate it and learn more about the Shroud and get to know the priest and as the book unfolds, doctor castle begins to say no, I can't dismiss this all together. So he has to start taking it more and more seriously. He gets into the evidence and even padre pio. I've got a doctor castle goes to a friend in Italy and says duplicate the Shroud. Well, this friend gabrieli, who would make up, is somebody who's been debunking that you've created characters and you create a story, all of which serves to educate the reader on the reality of this thing called the Shroud of Turin..

Dr. Jerome Corsi on The Science of the Shroud
"End of the book, you get into this idea of how this image would have been made because we said before that a lot of people said, oh, it's medieval forgery. Somebody them dealer was trying to create a fake relic, a relic that they could convince was whatever. So how would they have done that? And you say, well, some genius would have painted it or whatever. What we now know, there is no paint involved. Not at all. There's no pigment of paint at all. So what do you say? And I know you're writing another book about this, but what do we theorize could have created this magnificent image? Well, there's some actual scientists, which is one of the major scientific laboratories in Switzerland looking at particle physics, which is a very part of quantum physics and relativity theory. And they have a couple of scientists there who actually made DVDs and argued as I believe that this is a moment of a transcendental moment when the body of Christ crucified dead actually levitated. So the Shroud, which is wrapped around the body, wrapped around the head, this long piece of cloth, 14 feet long, wrapped around the head to cover the front of Christ when he was laid in the tomb. Right. And when the moment of this image gets placed on the Shroud, the body suspended. Now you can know that because the features of the body show no indentation as if the body were lying on the linen. You're not seeing the evidence of gravity and weight. Not at all. It's completely weightless. And the flash, the created this. Seared the very top threads of the linen. It does not penetrate deep into the cloth. In fact, when you first see the Shroud, you probably won't even see the image. It takes a while before your eyes begin to see the image. And then you're seeing a negative. You're not seeing you're like a photographic negative. The dark parts are actually the light. The light parts are actually the dark. And so it is a photographic made by radiation. Like a blast of radiation at the instant of the resurrection. The soul comes back into the dead body. And that's preserved on the cloth by searing the very, very top fibers, just the top fibers,
"forgery" Discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
"It is. When we come back, we're going to talk about a couple of homages in the portrait of an unknown woman by Daniel Silva go order your copy now at Amazon.com or Barnes and noble dot com or any of the places or at Daniel Silva books dot com and you might want to start at the beginning of the alarm series and work your way through. I'll be right back with Daniel Silva. Welcome back America. I want you to make sure that as we conclude today July 4th. Interview that you also go to the podcast and ask Daniel silver very interesting question that will only be on the podcast after we conclude two or three minutes extra. There are two homages. One is to Eric ambler and one is to our friend F. Scott Fitzgerald because Jay Gatsby Tom Buchanan are in there. This is about Fox, but Eric gambler, I don't know that you've ever referenced a thriller writer before this way, have you? Yeah, I think I have. I mean, I've referenced Graham green Graham Greene's more thriller type work. It's just one of the most famous lines that he ever wrote. And it's perfectly into this. Really key way and it created such an interesting moment. And I adore the works of Eric ambler and I found a way to get him in here. And then obviously from path works, I made it clear that I just revere F. Scott Fitzgerald. And Gatsby and tenders tonight and this book has clear illusions to The Great Gatsby. Absolutely. Setting an auto accident at the end of the novel as a line into the cooling Twilight is taken from Gatsby and that slender riot is island, of course, from gasoline. And a daisy like character. Let me also, I love the line, don't drive like a cop. There's a new character in portrait of an unknown woman who we may see in the future who has to be told by Gabriel Allan, don't drive like a cop. I love that line. I just wanted to make sure I said that to. Now, would you expand on people last thing? Because it's about the art world art forgery and a lawn after being a spy. Forgers are often failed painters. Would you explain what that means? They are, I mean, if you look back at some of the big forgery scandals that have rocked the art world in the last 20, 25 years, all of the people who were wielding the brush were failed makers. And that would mean failed. What does that mean? They're skilled painters. Who were not able to make a living as a professional artist. And it's just a very common element to forgery scandals at the forger himself. And it's sort of that chip on his shoulder. And they have this innate desire to show the art world and collectors and dealers and auction house. Personnel, how stupid they are. Yeah. They have a goal they are. And look at what I can do. And they're getting better and better. And this novel was inspired by a real case. Emerged in France a few years ago. And that this one apart was that it was the paintings for old masters. I mean, most forgery scandals involved 20th century artwork, for the civil reason. And this is not due to I mean, I revere those artists, but it is much easier to learn or Rothko or Matisse than it is to forge attention. Sorry, with all due respect to those artists. And what was amazing about the forgery scandal that broke out in France a few years ago is that this fortress was able to paint old master paintings, paintings that were made them appear to be painted four centuries of 5 centuries ago and fool the best eyes in this business. The very best eyes in the business. They painted a Franz halls that absolutely fooled the Louvre. And it also fooled the best scholars of Dutch golden age paintings in Holland. Well, one of the things that a reader will walk away. If they all understand how technically proficient of four dress to be if they want to work in that area, they got to find the right stretchers. They've got to find the right material. They've got to avoid The Rookie mistakes of forgery. And by the way, I loved your appendix of the art scandal. I didn't know any of that, by the way. And I keep up with the news. I just didn't, this is not my world. It's an amazing amount of art scandal going on. There is, and those are the ones we know about, okay? Ah, true. And if you take the. Knoedler scandal in New York, there's a fantastic Netflix documentary and that scandal called nature look. She scandal in Germany and France. The John my John just scanned on in the UK. I mean, if you just take those scandals and ghee Roubaix in France, there's several thousand taking forgeries from those stunning. It's a stunning as portrait of an unknown woman who's entertaining. Go and get the book and go get the podcast, by the way, which I'll post with just a little bonus segment. Sort of like the afterwards of a Daniel. So the novel, a couple, three, four minutes x-ray if you go over to those. Do you a highly concentrated new podcast? All of you enjoy your 4th of July go order, portrait of an unknown woman..
Pete Hegseth: Social Studies, Other Subjects Were Morphed to Teach CRT
"Hence they created the social sciences social studies which were traditional traditional studies like history civics economics philosophy theology geography the types of courses that even we took maybe when we were in elementary and high school A lot of those things have been folded into how we and today it's activism How can you as an activist challenge the existing power structures which are inherently racist and based on the white male patriarchy So as to bring about equity when you hear diversity equity and inclusion that is a total metamorphosis from the ideas of equal opportunity They did that intentionally toward their goal And when you look at how they did it they crafted it by putting in subtly forgeries of things we value early on So when they removed something replaced it with something else that sounded good so that people who work for a living like you pointed out were providing for their families might sort of shrug their shoulders at it and say that doesn't look right but okay And they kept plotting along until suddenly we poke our heads up and its drag queen story hour in our local public school or worse off in our private schools or Christian schools The majority of the education system unless you're very intentional about it is still completely driven by the progressive prerogative and today it is not just bias it is not just indoctrination it is now activism

Is This Ancient Biblical Forgery Actually Real?
"So close to a century and a half ago. A man named moses wilhelm shapira found fifteen manuscript fragments in a cave near the dead sea. They were written in an ancient hebrew script and contained. What shapiro claimed was the original book of deuteronomy blitz despite interest from the british museum to the tune of a million pounds. The manuscripts were found to be forged. Shapiro was disgraced and the documents disappeared but now a scholar named don dershowitz is questioning. If those documents might have been real all along so while the british museum was examining the manuscript fragments for authenticity themselves. Back in the nineteen th century. A few of the fragments were also on display to the public already attracting tons of visitors. The news of the possibly oldest ever discovered biblical manuscript had made headlines around the world. While awaiting the museum's official decree of authenticity. Someone else decided to take matters into their own hands. Charles simone clermont. Is you know who the times describes as a swashbuckling french archaeologist and longtime nemesis of shapiro's end quote examined the fragments for a few minutes and immediately went to the press to say that they were fake. The risk he played on his cursory examination paid off when the british museum experts agreed. Shapiro was humiliated by this and ended up. Tragically dying by suicide a few months later. The documents were sold at auction for a fraction of what they were originally expected to sell for. And most people soon forgot about the whole thing now. Dershowitz from the university of potsdam germany has published a new paper and companion book making the case that the manuscript was real all along quoting the new york times but dershowitz makes an even more dramatic claim the text which he is reconstructed from nineteenth century transcriptions and drawings is not a reworking of deuteronomy. He argues but a precursor to its dating to the period of the first temple before the babylonian exile that would make it the oldest biblical manuscript by far and an unprecedented window into the origins and evolution of the bible and biblical religion dershowitz. His research closely guarded until now has yet to get broad. Scrutiny scholars previewed his findings at a closed-door seminar at harvard in two thousand nineteen are divided. A taste of fierce debates likely to come but of dershowitz is correct. Some experts say it will be the most consequential bible related discovery since the dead sea scrolls in nineteen forty seven and quotes the times. Sagely points out that it's much tougher to prove something authentic than it is to prove. It's fake but there's an additional hurdle to be jumped. In this case the physical fragments themselves may no longer exist so back in eighteen eighty three there was a mad rush at the time to find biblical artifacts that would prove or disprove various points of contention emerging in biblical scholarship moseley around the documentary hypothesis. The idea that the first five books of the bible or the pentateuch were actually written by various authors. Not just one traditionally thought to be moses. It was in this climate of aggressive archaeology that shapiro. I established himself as an antiquities dealer in jerusalem and during which time he and clermont no became enemies. After camacho correctly denounced a collection of pottery. That shapira had sold to the german government. It's also important to note that shapiro was a convert to christianity having been raised jewish in russia so he was viewed with some skepticism from the other biblical scholars and archaeologists and also faced intense antisemitism after the deuteronomy manuscript was denounced. Fast forward to now. Dershowitz says one of the main reasons he thinks the fragments could have been real is because their contents differs quite a bit from the deuteronomy in the bible and many of those differences lineup with discoveries that were only made when the dead sea scrolls were found in nineteen forty seven sixty four years. After chapitoulas discovery of the fragments dershowitz also investigated. Some of shapiro's personal notes archived at the berlin state library and found three. Handwritten pages of shapiro trying to decipher the fragments. Filled with question marks and transcription errors. Dershowitz said quote if he forged them or was part of a conspiracy. It makes no sense that he'd be sitting there trying to guess what the text is and making mistakes while he did it end quote while some scholars of the evolution of biblical text or undershoots side cautiously believing the deuteronomy fragments may be genuine. Most pig refers people who study inscriptions are the ones that usually authenticate documents. Most of them aren't convinced they say the original fragments bear the hallmarks of modern forgery. That they agree with the notes made by the experts who examined them at the time and since no one has the fragments to examine physically now. It's a closed case and as for the content being impressions christopher rolston leading pig refer at george washington university said quote. Forgers are pretty clever with regard to content and they've been very clever for twenty five hundred years and quotes despite dershowitz his published paper and companion book. The jury is still out and who knows if it will ever truly be born ounce. It would have some pretty huge complications. If it does due to some of its key differences for example. It's missing all of the laws of the deuteronomy were familiar with in the bible. Ones upon which traditions and entire libraries have been founded. It would also bolster the theory that are tons more stories and traditions out there than just the ones that have been preserved in the hebrew bible.

And yes, Before I get into it, I still have a cold. I'm still dealing with allergies. In fact. I'm recording an episode right right. Just record another episode. So you get the not at 100% Jonathan's voice version of Jonathan Today. I apologize for that. But today I've got the subject that I'm really excited to talk about. Now. I've done episodes in the past about electric bikes, but a listener recently pointed out that I not yet actually discussed the bicycle itself. And so today, we're going to take a look. At the bicycle. We're gonna take off the training wheels, and we're gonna look at this evolution and probably make some queen references. We'll see how it goes. But, yes, I like to ride my bicycle. I like to ride my bike. So where did the bicycle come from? We're gonna really focus on that. Today. We're looking at the birth and evolution of the bicycle, as opposed to the latest and greatest in bikes. I'll do another episode about that later on. Well, as is the case with many inventions. The answer of where the bicycle came from is not really that simple and answer. The bicycle evolved from a syriza of different inventions. And it would be disingenuous to point to a specific person as the inventor of the bicycle. Now I should start all of this by talking about the earliest evidence of wheeled vehicles in general. But I'm not gonna spend a whole lot of time on it because come on. You don't need a 14 Syriza episode about the invention and modernization of the wheel, but the actual wheel dates back to at least 3500, B. C. E in both Asia and Europe. And going into more detail would be a bit much even for me. The early wheeled vehicles used four wheels. For the most part, that's not surprised as it provides a stable base. Historians discovered a few early two wheeled vehicles dating from around that same time. But these were carts and the wheels were aligned side by side, as opposed to front and back like a bicycle. Skipping ahead thousands of years. Let's talk about Giovanni Fontana. He was known as not just 1/15, century doctor of medicine, but also an engineer. And even in some circles a magician, though he was using a proto form of the scientific method to get results and didn't necessarily present his work is that of a magical nature? He was replicating what magicians claimed they could do, using scientific principles and saying, Doesn't it make more sense that it's done this way? Well at 14 25. He published a manuscript the detailed a self driving carriage. By that he did not mean an autonomous car, though that would been incredibly forward thinking back in the 14 hundreds. Rather, he had suggested a vehicle that we propelled by the people inside the vehicle itself. Up to that point land vehicles had to be pulled by animals or other human beings. Fontana suggested that a hand powered vehicle could allow for a new method of getting from place to place. His proposal included a brief description of a carriage that used ropes and cause eggs to transform power from a writer or transfer power. I should say from a writer to the wheels of the vehicle, so imagine sort of Ah, loop of rope wrapped around Cox's like they're pulleys. And if you pull on the rope, you transfer the energy needed to rotate the wheels of the carriage itself. But that's about all the details we have for this proposed device. If Fontana actually ever tried to build one of these things, it was lost to time. And on a tangential note before I trends for away from Fontana. I have to also mention that he proposed a sort of proto rocket car that would be fueled by gunpowder. I mentioned that only because I love how crazy that sounds. I don't think he ever made one of those either because there are no reports of Fontana having to be dug out of the side of a mountain. Ah French mathematician ended up laying out the argument for human powered vehicles in a 16 96 manuscript titled Wreck Creations, Mathematics, a physics It's French. He hypothesized that such conveyances would be much more readily available to the general population. Because you wouldn't have to care for an animal. You wouldn't have to have the space to keep a horse and you wouldn't have to feed it. Plus, you could even get some exercise and some fresh air using such a vehicle. However, this was just sort of Ah, armchair philosophizing kind of approach. He didn't actually build anything. There is an interesting story about a sketch that was attributed to Leonardo Divinci. And supposedly, that sketch dated back to 14 93. And not only was it a sketch of what looked like a bicycle. It even had petals like it was. It was pretty much a modern style bike in a sketch format. It Z undeniably that sort of thing, but it is somewhat crude design. The sketch had remained undiscovered. And I say that in air quotes until 1974. So is attributed to 14 93, but it wasn't uncovered until 1974. That was when there was an art restoration project Experts were working on the Vinci's Codex Atlantic, US. And supposedly, this particular design was part of that and just had not been seen for centuries. Historians debated the legitimacy of this sketch, and the general consensus is that it's hokum. Here's the weird thing. This is not the only example of false attribution to the bicycles, evolution. Another sketch. This one supposedly dating to have 15 34 and made by one of Da Vinci's pupils also appears to be a fraud. So what was going on there? These crazy? Fake sketches claiming to be the proto design of the bicycle centuries before it was Ever really introduced well to understand we need to take a quick detour. And then I'll get back to the actual time line of the bicycles invention, But I think this is pretty fascinating. So in the early 20th century, European nations were becoming increasingly isolated and jingoistic. It became a point of national pride to champion. The various advancements and inventions each country could lay claim to I think of it a lot like the way we treat the Olympics at times how some people will reduce the Olympics to a discussion of Our country took home 12 gold medals and your country only took home eight. It's sort of a one upsmanship tendency, which I think is pretty darn tacky cause it takes attention away from the actual accomplishments. But that's just my own opinion. Whiles tensions in Europe built toward World War, one more nations were getting involved in kind of this one upsmanship. They were scrambling to prove that they were the seat of ingenuity and innovation. And sometimes it meant that some rather let's say creative, but Undaunted by ethics sorts of people would fabricate evidence that clever inventions came from their respective homelands. Historian suspected that the alleged The Vinci Sketch is one of those examples. It was a forgery intended to give the honor of creating the bicycle to Italians. Rather than to say the Germans spoiler alert. Most historians agree that the bicycle really got started in Germany first, another bogus claim to the invention of the bicycle dates to 17 91 and a fellow known as Come to deceive rack. Though it may be that this bogus claim was arrived at honestly by mistake, as opposed to a hoax perpetuated by someone. The good count allegedly developed a vehicle called the Cell Letter affair, which, by 1/19 Century historians description sounded a lot like the basic frame of a bicycle going to the description. It had two wheels. One set in front of the other. It did not have any petals or breaks or handlebars. It was essentially a frame with a saddle on it a leather seat and you would sit on the saddle and you would propel yourself. With your feet pushing against the ground, and you would steer yourself by leaning left or right, And that's as best as you could do. As it turns out, there were vehicles sort of like this, but they were all Three or four wheeled vehicles, not two wheeled vehicles. Many people, particularly French people, adopted the belief that a Frenchman had come up with the idea for a bicycle. But it appears that was not quite the case. It may well have been an error in translation or transcription. I prefer stories that actually have evidence to support them. And I am inclined to give the nod of the invention of the bicycle, or at least at the invention of a device that would evolve into the bicycle to a certain Baron Karl von Dry ice in 18 17..

"forgery" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM
"Either and welcome to Tech stuff. I'm your host, Jonathan Strickland. I'm an executive producer here and how stuff works. And yes, Before I get into it, I still have a cold. I'm still dealing with allergies. In fact, I recording an episode right after I just recorded another episode. So you get the not at 100% Jonathan's voice version of Jonathan Today. I apologize for that. But today I've got the subject that I really excited to talk about. Now. I've done episodes in the past about electric bikes, but a listener recently pointed out that I not yet actually discussed the bicycle itself. And so today, we're going to take a look. At the bicycle. We're gonna take off the training wheels and we're gonna look at this evolution and probably make some queen references. We'll see how it goes. But, yes, I like to ride my bicycle. I like to ride my bike. So where did the bicycle come from? We're gonna really focus on that today. We're looking at the Birth and evolution of the bicycle, as opposed to the latest and greatest in bikes. I'll do another episode about that later on. Well, as is the case with many inventions. The answer of where the bicycle came from is not really that simple and answer. The bicycle evolved from a syriza of different inventions. And it would be disingenuous to point to a specific person as the inventor of the bicycle. Now I should start all of this by talking about the earliest evidence of wheeled vehicles in general. But I'm not gonna spend a whole lot of time on it because come on. You don't need a 14 Syriza episode about the invention and modernization of the wheel, but the actual wheel dates back to at least 3500, B. C. E in both Asia and Europe. And going into more detail would be a bit much even for me. The early wheeled vehicles used four wheels for the most part, that's not surprised as it provides a stable base. Historians discovered a few early two wheeled vehicles dating from around that same time, But these were carts and the wheels were aligned side by side, as opposed to front and back like a bicycle. Skipping ahead thousands of years. Let's talk about Giovanni Fontana. He was known as not just 1/15, century doctor of medicine, but also an engineer. And even in some circles a magician, though he was using a proto form of the scientific method to get results and didn't necessarily present his work is that of a magical nature? He was replicating what magicians claimed they could do, using scientific principles and saying, Doesn't it make more sense that it's done this way? Well in 14 25. He published a manuscript the detailed a self driving carriage. By that he did not mean an autonomous car, though that would been incredibly forward thinking back in the 14 hundreds. Rather, he had suggested a vehicle that we repelled by the people inside the vehicle itself. Up to that point land vehicles had to be pulled by animals or other human beings. Fontana suggested that a hand powered vehicle could allow for a new method of getting from place to place. His proposal included a brief description of a carriage that used ropes and cause eggs to transform power from a writer or transfer power. I should say from a writer to the wheels of the vehicle So imagine sort of. Ah, loop of rope wrapped around. Cock's like they're pulleys. And if you pull on the rope, you transfer the energy needed to rotate the wheels of the carriage itself. That's about all the details we have for this proposed device. If Fontana actually ever tried to build one of these things, it was lost to time and on a tangential note before I trans fer away from Fontana. I have to also mention that he proposed a sort of proto rocket car that would be fueled by gunpowder. I mentioned that only because I love how crazy that sounds. I don't think he ever made one of those either because there are no reports of Fontana having to be dug out of the side of a mountain. French mathematician ended up laying out the argument for human powered vehicles in a 16 96 manuscript titled Wreck Creations, Mathematics, a physics Cause it's French. He hypothesized that such conveyances would be much more readily available to the general population. Because you wouldn't have to care for an animal. You wouldn't have to have the space to keep a horse and you wouldn't have to feed it. Plus, you could even get some exercise and some fresh air using such a vehicle. However, this was just sort of Ah, armchair philosophizing kind of approach. He didn't actually build anything. There is an interesting story about a sketch that was attributed to Leonardo Divinci. And supposedly, that sketch dated back to 14 93. And not only was it a sketch of what looked like a bicycle. It even had petals like it was. It was pretty much a modern style bike in a sketch format. It's It's undeniably that sort of thing. But it is somewhat crude design. The sketch had remained undiscovered. And I say that in air quotes until 1974. So is attributed to 14 93, but it wasn't uncovered until 1974. That was when there was an art restoration project Experts were working on the Vinci's Codex Atlantic, US. And supposedly, this particular design was part of that and just had not been seen for centuries. Historians debated the legitimacy of this sketch, and the general consensus is that it's hokum. Here's the weird thing. This is not the only example of false attribution to the bicycles, evolution. Another sketch. This one supposedly dating to have 15 34 and made by one of Da Vinci's pupils also appears to be a fraud. So what was going on there? These crazy? Fake sketches claiming to be the proto design of the bicycle centuries before it was Ever really introduced well to understand we need to take a quick detour. And then I'll get back to the actual time line of the bicycles invention, But I think this is pretty fascinating. So in the early 20th century, European nations were becoming increasingly isolated and jingoistic. It became a point of national pride to champion. The various advancements and inventions each country could lay claim to. I think of it a lot like the way we treat the Olympics at times how some people will reduce the Olympics to a discussion of Our country took home 12 gold medals and your country only took home eight. It's sort of a one upsmanship tendency, which I think is pretty darn tacky cause it takes attention away from the actual accomplishments. But that's just my own opinion. Whiles tensions in Europe built toward World War, one more nations were getting involved in kind of this one upsmanship. They were scrambling to prove that they were the seat of ingenuity and innovation. And sometimes it meant that some rather let's say creative, but Daunted by ethics sorts of people would fabricate evidence that clever inventions came from their respective homelands. Historian suspected that the alleged The Vinci Sketch is one of those examples. It was a forgery intended to give the honor of creating the bicycle. Two Italians rather than to say the Germans spoiler alert. Most historians agree that the bicycle really got started in Germany first, another bogus claim to the invention of the bicycle dates to 17 91 and a fellow known as Come to deceive rack. Though it may be that this bogus claim was arrived at honestly by mistake, as opposed to a hoax perpetuated by someone. The good count allegedly developed a vehicle called the Cellar affair, which, by 1/19 Century historians description sounded a lot Frame of a bicycle going to the description. It had two wheels, one set in front of the other. It did not have any petals or breaks or handlebars. It was essentially a frame with a saddle on.
Man who found Forrest Fenn's famed treasure reveals identity
"So in an episode over the summer i talked about the treasure which had finally been found by an anonymous treasure hunter in june and after being adamant that he never wanted to reveal his identity. The finder of the treasure chest has just gone public blowing. The lid on most of his secrets in an article written by a fellow treasure hunter. In outside a quick recap though forest finn was an air force pilot who later opened an art gallery in santa fe new mexico one filled with plenty of forgeries as arts as tried to do people unclear in nineteen eighty eight. He received a terminal cancer diagnosis and decided to hide treasure chest in some outdoor location for people to find but then he recovered from the cancer. Still he didn't wanna give up on his treasure hunt idea so fast forward to two thousand and ten when quoting outside thin treasure chest containing gold and other valuables estimated to be worth at least a million dollars somewhere in the rocky mountains not long after he published a memoir called the thrill of the chase which included a mysterious twenty four line poem that if solved would lead searchers to the treasurer fended suggested the loot was secretive. Way at the place where he had envisioned lying down to die back when he believed his cancer diagnosis terminal since the hunt began in two thousand ten many thousands of searchers had gone out in pursuit at least five of them losing their lives in the process and the chase became an international story and quote. And yeah i mean the whole thing really has been a wild story people have lost their lives and livelihoods there have been countless lawsuits. You can read all kinds of articles about that have been published over the last ten years leading up to this year when in june the treasurer was finally found and the man who found it decided to stay anonymous because he knew how intense the community of treasure hunters is any feared for his safety but then quickly announced that he had met the winner and verified. He indeed had found the chest the to also decided to keep the location a secret so that it wouldn't become a kind of tourist site where people might injure themselves getting there were risk damaging the nature around it but all of that anonymity lack of closure did not sit well with people who had dedicated years of their lives to finding the treasure there was instant suspicion and then in september fourth fin passed away. The one man who could maybe smooth things over was gone and those left behind were even more dedicated to making sure. His wishes were upheld. With all of that has come a number of court cases in particular one from a woman claiming that the finder of the treasure hacked her emails to steal part of the puzzle that she herself had solved. She doesn't seem to have too much of a case however since she thought the chest was in new mexico and it turned out to be in wyoming but the case is still proceeding in the winner knew that his name would be released to the public as it goes on so he decided to preempt that by outing himself on his own terms the winner. Is jack still a thirty two year. Old medical student originally from michigan. He's keeping as many personal details as possible under wraps to protect his privacy but he does have a bit of a digital paper trail before to med school. He worked briefly at the onion and as a freelance writer. In fact he is the guy who wrote that totally inaccurate article eight years ago trying out matthew inman of the oatmeal as a far right wing. Republican in article buzzfeed had to issue a public apology for and which. I didn't realize until today that i still believed even after meeting matthew in minutes out by south west that same year back in two thousand twelve and discovering that he was a super nice guy. I still thought. Oh but some article made it. Seem like he secretly a jerk. I wonder if that's true. Which is a lesson for me in media literacy and not believing everything that i read especially when it seems pretty off base but also for all of us that no matter how many corrections or apologies you might issue online. There will still be tons of people who only ever see the mistake. That's a lesson that jack stiff learned early on in his career as a comedy writer and is probably part of why he has taken so many pains to remain anonymous in the case of backlash to him finding the prize. If and win all the court cases die down. What will still do with his findings. What does one do with an actual. The goodness treasure loaded up with jewels and artifacts. Stuff says he'll use it to pay off his student so yup the most accurate millennial answer possible to coming into unexpected fortune of. I still have to get the chest appraised which he hasn't done yet and between fins knack for forgeries and his wish that part of the chest displayed publicly so people can visit it. Who knows how much stuff will actually end up getting for all of his efforts but we finally have a few more pieces to the story. If you want to learn more keep an eye out for a book coming out next year called chasing the thrill written by daniel barbara. The writer and fellow treasure hunter. Who got checks to to go public
U.S. charges Russian military hackers
"A story for you. May Two thousand seventeen voters in France went to the polls to elect a new French president just like in our election the before then Russian intelligence agencies in the Russian government played hard in the French election that year russian-owned websites pushing outlandish rumours about the centrist candidate Emmanuel macron. Those rumors were then processed into pieces Russian state media outlets. macron's rival was a far right candidate named Marine Le Pen she had inherited from her Holocaust denying Father Control of Francis Post. World War Two Fascist Party. So it was the neo-fascist party running against macron. Lapenne far-right neo-fascist campaign was explicitly bankrolled by a Russian state controlled bank. Marine Le Pen went to Moscow and met with Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin during the campaign. This was not subtle. But it was. Too much for Russia to pass up a divisive racist far right fascist candidate injecting chaos into the elections in a major. European. Democracy in twenty seventeen that's like catnip to Russia. Right? They want to undermine democracy everywhere. They will undermine Western countries in general however they can. But Russia's saved its boldest move for the eve of that French. Just two days before the vote. Russian. Hackers part of the same Russian military unit that had disseminated hacked democratic emails during the twenty, sixteen American election the before. They dumped tens of thousands of files, online, nine gigabytes of stolen emails and other information all hacked from Emmanuel Macron's campaign, and that might have become the dominant news story of the final weekend of that campaign. Before French voters went to the polls. It might have actually ended up upending that election if it were not for a quirk of French law, which imposes a media blackout on anything relating to the campaign for full day before voting starts all the way through until polls close on election day. That blackout period in French law precedes this whole scandal with Russia messing with the French election. But it ended up saving the day. The material that was hacked by Russian intelligence got posted online and France just hours before media blackout period began just minutes before the blackout began at midnight that night the macron campaign issued a statement warning that the hackers had inserted forged fake documents into the hack stolen material they pleaded with the media to not report on that junk. And the media didn't. They stuck to the rules. And in the end, Emmanuel macron beat the far-right neo-fascist Marine Le Pen by more than thirty points. And there's a couple of reasons for us be thinking about sort of relearning the story of that. Two thousand seventeen French election right now one is that the intelligence community is raising the alarm that Russian intelligence is executing an operation just like the one they did in France on us right now the supposedly Biden scandal that Rudy Giuliani has been shopping the scandal he. Managed to get printed in the New York Post which president trump has been gleefully promoting ever since including posing with a copy of that paper in the Oval Office that junk that Giuliani has been promoting is being actively investigated by federal investigators as potentially part of a hostile foreign influence operation illegally targeting our election and the intelligence community is investigating this Johnny on the spot. In part because they saw this coming in advance, this is in the New York Times last week quote, The Times reported last January the Ukrainian company were Hunter Biden was once on the Board respond had been hacked by the same Russian Intelligence Unit that hacked the Democratic National Committee in two thousand, sixteen last month US intelligence analysts contracted several people with knowledge of that hack. Asking them for further information because they picked up chatter that stolen burris, my emails would be leaked in the form of an October surprise among their chief concerns was that the burris material would be leaked alongside forged materials and it it's to hurt Biden's candidacy as Russian. Hackers did when they dumped real e mails alongside forgeries ahead of the French elections in two thousand seventeen. So that's what they did to Macron in two, thousand, seventeen they hacked all install all of this stuff from his campaign than they mixed it up with Ford stuffing dumped it right before the election. That's what the US intelligence community said. They believed was going to happen with Barista and sort of October surprise firm Rudy Giuliani. Thank right on time Rudy Giuliani shows up some emails from a mysterious source that are totally unverified and unverified able and only one Rupert Murdoch owned right wing tabloid will air that junk. Put it in their paper. So. That's one reason. The Russian operation in the two thousand, seventeen French election newly relevant to our lives right now, the Russians may be trying that exact same trick all over again except we don't have media blackout rules. The other reason that that two thousand seventeen Russian operation in France is newly relevant. Is that the guys who did it just got indicted by the US Justice Department today? Here they are the Russian military intelligence hackers who carried out that operation to interfere in the French election in two thousand seventeen the Justice Department says in the indictment today that these guys also launched major malware and hacking operations that shut down the power grid in Ukraine that hit the parliament in the nation of Georgia that chemical weapons investigators in the UK and Europe who were looking into the Russian poisoning of former Russian spy, Sergei scruple who was poisoned with a Russian nerve agent on British territory they say, they also orchestrated hacks that hit hospitals in companies. In the United States. They also organize tax that hit the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics quite a list. And? Although. One of the Russian hacker that was indicted today was previously indicted by Robert Muller in two thousand eighteen for his role in the hacking operation against the twenty sixteen election here in the US, today's indictment of these Russian hackers doesn't include any charges related to American election interference this year. That said the election. The American election is two weeks from tomorrow. It's hard to look today's indictment without trying to understand how it relates to our own election and what the Justice Department is trying to signal here. Is that the right way to look at this. Joining us now is Jeremy Bash. He served as chief of staff at the CIA and at the Defense Department under President Obama Jeremy Nice to see. Thanks for making time. It, Rachel. So, this is a lot. Going on the surprise announcement today from the Justice Department about the indictment of these Russian hackers when you look at this with your background in intelligence and your understanding of what Russia has done to target our democracy and others. What do you think is most important here for people to understand. Well I think was most important is that the GRU this Russian military organization that was responsible for the two thousand Sixteen Hacking Dump Operation Against the Democrats that was responsible for the two thousand seventeen election appearance in France as you noted, and is responsible for these militias cyber attacks globally including, against us, hospitals and. They are very active. They're very capable and they are in fact probably behind this this Russian. Intelligence operation at least a looks and appears to be Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign. Last. Week Andrew Weisman, who is part of the Miller investigation wrote in Law Fair about the decision that was made by bill bar earlier this year this spring to drop criminal charges against Russian companies that had participated in the attack on our election in two thousand sixteen and that didn't actually get a lot of attention when it happened in March I think in part because the country was overwhelmed by what was starting to happen to us in terms of covid why spent makes the case that before may have acted essentially improperly in dismissing those charges essentially signaling to Russia that the. US Criminal Law wouldn't be used against them as a tool if they wanted to interfere in the election this year I'm wondering if this might be a signal in the other direction, if this might be some sort of signal to brushback rush intelligence ahead of what appears to be their ongoing efforts to boost trump in his reelection effort. Hartono, racial. But what we do know is that there are mixed signals being sent by the US government here. Today we have the Justice Department indicting Russian hackers, but you've got the president of the United States welcoming condoning what looks apparently like a Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign remember Rachel that Rudy Giuliani. In Kiev, with Andrei Dirk Catch Ukrainian lawmaker who has been assessed by US intelligence and announced by our Treasury Department to be a Russian asset for the last decade. Giuliani goes to Kiev meets with Dir cash and he comes back and low these many months later, Giuliani surfaces up with these a very mysterious emails. So every Intelligence Professional Rachel that I've talked to the last twenty four hours says that this walks like a Russian intelligence disinformation campaign this talks like a Russian intelligence to information campaign. This is most likely Russian intelligence is permission campaign against the Biden team.
Been Caught Stealing
"Thankful faults jewelry and fine art. Maybe a casino carefully organized plans by people dressed in black turtlenecks with lots of cool gadgets close calls. What we remember as the daring heist of one of the world's most famous paintings. was really neither of those things. The heist wasn't particularly daring and the theft of Leonardo DAVINCI's Mona Lisa. Wasn't even noticed until well after it had happened. My Name's Moxy and this is your brain on facts. These days the Mona Lisa also called in Italy login Kanda and her famous enigmatic smile hang in a prominent place in the Louvre in Paris. It holds the Guinness World Record for the highest known insurance valuation in History at one, hundred, million dollars in nineteen, sixty two. So. That would be about eight hundred million dollars today. Over six million people go to see it each year. It's so popular that you can't even snap a quick Selfie of it without having a few dozen other strangers, hands, and cell phones in the frame. This popularity certainly wasn't the case when the painting was I hung in the Leuven eighteen o four or for the century subsequent. Neither was popular with critics when the artistic elite who often relegated it to the low end of DAVINCI's work it was basically just another painting. It was so unsocial in fact that it took the better part of twenty four hours before staff even noticed the painting was missing in Nineteen. Eleven. A handyman named Vincenzo Perrugia was working in the museum and he simply waited in a closet until after the museum had closed. Tuck to the painting under his smock walked on out. He was unwittingly aided by a plumber also working in the museum who unlocked a for Peruta when he found himself stuck inside. The police were called and they searched the museum. The only sign they found the Japan Kanda was frame laying on a staircase. Though police did find some twenty one other paintings in the museum. The curator's had previously reported missing. The. Search went citywide then national then international. Ships were searched before they left France or after arriving in their port of call. A reward of over half a million dollars in today's money was offered. The Mona Lisa's picture was printed in newspapers all over the world. It became a of Mona Lisa Mania. The theft of this single painting served a spawn multiple criminal enterprises. People on the wrong side of the law knew that those with more money than morals would want to buy. LEGITIM- Kanda. A pair of confidence men from Belgium hired a small army of forgers to make quality fakes, which they then sold to select around the globe. They made sure their buyers were unlikely to ever meet and rested soundly knowing that no one would let on that they had purchased the most famous stolen painting in the world. Though today, one of them would probably take a selfie with it. The huge reward and the number of fakes in circulation meant the police were inundated with leads. For two years they searched tirelessly. But Fruitlessly The sixty man strong force even interviewed, Peruta Twice. But decided, he couldn't be the criminal mastermind they were looking for. Not only did those two years not yield the Mona Lisa the police didn't even find the forgeries. The head of the Paris police retired in shame. Did, peruse, you get an enormous payday for the stolen painting. People were soon to learn that he didn't steal it for money. When ferruccio approached museum in Florence to sell them the painting, the museum's director called the police instead. After. His arrest Russia's stated. I worked in the Louvre making frames for paintings stolen from Italy by France every day I pass login Kanda and swore I would return it to its rightful home. He seemed convinced he would be heralded as a hero. This was sadly not the case but the Italian courts were sympathetic giving him only a year in prison for the world famous theft. These days legit Kanda sits behind more bulletproof
Inside Mississippi's Prison System
"Know home. In Nineteen Forty Blues, men, book White, recorded Parchment Farm, blues based on his time served inside the infamous prison. But Dow. Is Mine. He sings about the hard labor from dawn until the setting of the sun that's when the work is done. When The prison is still in operation today and still under scrutiny. The conditions that White Sang about and released on a ten inch records still echo from inside Mississippi state penitentiary on pirate podcast did show is the opportunity to the platforms allow these guys on inside voice to complain and let people know what they're really going through. Failures in oversight both within the state's prisons and at the government level have led some correctional officers to come forward even though the cash rate is not our job to treat them like dogs I mean we not the Kennel over there they the freeze and ended be treated like humans. In August two, thousand eighteen well before any thought of a pandemic sweeping the country Mississippi's prison system saw spike in inmate deaths. Correctional officials attributed many of these deaths to what they dismissed as natural causes. This is the ground truth podcast I'm Charlie Senate Michelle Lu covers criminal justice for Mississippi today for this episode, she takes us inside her investigation into the unexplained deaths and why the victims families still have questions. With report for America, Corps member Michelle Lu we're on the ground inside the Mississippi prison system. So as long as people have been in prison, people have died in prison missing prison leaders are looking into the fourth inmate twelve death. This month in a state thirteen prisoners have died behind bars and the month of August alone when local news outlets started reporting on a seaming spike in death across Mississippi's prison system in August of two, thousand eighteen, my editor asked me to take a look let story and figure out how conceptualize it in terms of what did these numbers mean and how did they compared to how deadly Mississippi's prisoners have been in the recent past. Over the course of that month sixteen people fifteen men and one woman died across Mississippi's entire prison system, and that was a significantly higher number than any prior month going back to two thousand twelve. So the State Corrections Department maintained that this number was not out of line with how deadly the prisons usually are. I think it was misinterpreted as to the calls for those sixteen. There's that were reported for the month of August the Commissioner Police Hall suggested that the people who had died inside died in similar ways that people die outside oppressive media those were from natural causes. I'll let the states lack of transparency raised questions about how inmates were dying in the states care. Before. Moving to Mississippi I had done a little bit of cops and courts reporting during journalism internships as a college student and I my student newspaper but I had never done any sort of substantive enterprise work on the topic before. I was really eager to even one of the challenges was that there was an has always been a tension between the urgency of the stories I want to tell Um when. People Send Me. Tips when people tell me about incidents that have just happened and the sort of frustrating Byzantine process. By which I have to. Make a good faith effort to corroborate the story. Circuit Clerk's office healthy. Hi My name's Michelle Lu reporter with Mississippi today in Jackson. This typically involves filing a lot of public records request for public records request and you can send a copy of the check that you're GonNa send and fax number six, one, seven, three times but I, don't get a lot confirmed or denied from the state. And as I've learned neither do the families of those who died in prison. I think families of people who die in any state institution deserve a thorough understanding of what happened to the person they loved and cared about and in talking to family members I found that they were getting little to no information from the state about what happened to their loved ones. We will thirty, six year old willy, hauling head died Saturday at least bill prison officials have not released a causes of death pending completion of autopsies. Willie hauling head was serving time for a drug conviction. and. When I drove out to Alabama to meet with Willy's family I was. Really, struck by the way in which in the absence of any real clarity were knowledge in how willy had died. They took what was available to them, which is the condition of Willie's body when they picked him up from Jackson at the mortuary and the facts they knew about Willy's life and had to find their own narrative. The official death certificate that arrive in the mail about a year later said that. release. Cause of death was undetermined. But he was you know in his thirties his family said, he didn't have health problems. and. They is their reports that he was just found on the floor one night. Mississippi state. Penitentiary colloquially known as Parchman is one of the largest prisons in the state of Mississippi. It's run by the state and it's located in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. It has a really bleak in distressing history. Frankly, it was founded in one thousand, nine, hundred 's as the cotton plantation and it was modeled after a slave plantation. In the nineteen thirties, Elvis Presley's father. Vernon spent nine months there for forgery. And to this day, the Parchman farm is reported to be a working operation relying on the Labor prisoners. Parchman has also been at the center of several calls for investigations into the conditions inside these investigations have been partly in response, the videos and photos leaked by prisoners. This is a picture of the food trays. These trays are stacked outside exposed to numerous germs, insights, and feces from birds. A lot of incarcerated people in Mississippi have had contraband cell phones inside and they've often used social media. As, well, as family members to circulate images of their living conditions
Seven Generations - With Karl Dockstader (Oneida)
"Hello and welcome everyone and we're so glad to have you today. Joining me is Carl docstater and just to give you a little background on this guy he's a member of the United.

He and a colleague of his started a podcast called one dish one Mike, and since then it's transformed into a weekly on air radio show, and recently he. He became a recipient of Canadian Journalism Foundation CBC. Fellowship for his. Outstanding Work I've been on his show before the ever since our show started. We've communicated back and forth, and finally it's my delight to introduce this man, and on top of that all he's an avid buffalo bills fan, so I would like to give a big severely to Mr Pro docstater You're very kind to Gaydos in the youngest log into low to Jota, what's the? What can I do? GEICO Ajayi? That translates to many Ms Carl. Just kidding There's there's a lot more in there. that I I like to introduce myself with Mitch official name is often as possible because our our language is under threat. I think that using any language like even if you only know Golly, even if you only know gateway when you're saying goodbye to someone or or something similar to goodbye, or or if you're seeing Jawa, thank someone. I think that every bit of language revitalization is is important, so so thank you for for having me on your show I have a gigantic fan. If you go into the archives, you can find an episode where we interview Andrew Shannon I may podcasting Betsy Andrew and I think that it's really just forty five minutes of meat gushing lick offend will. So but but you're worth it I mean it, it's it's really be concept. Your show that that you're doing at I'm I'm glad to be on for for something. Maybe a little outside of the box of avoid normally, so they are having beats danger. It's it's outside of the box, but i. feel like when we started the show. This is more of what we wanted. It's easy to talk about dead people because if you. You get something wrong well. They're not around to defend themselves. What's really hard for me? Is from a loving history and background is a lot of times. We try as hard as we can to point out. The the members of the six nations are still around today. There's still a vibrant part of our communities. They still contribute still here at not not like two or three of them left and on our show I have to. To purposely save the holding. The schone are instead of the haughtiness. SCHONE did and a lot of times we use the past tense. I I apologize to it now. You know when you're talking about past historical events that happens a lot, but we'd like to point out all the contributions that people have made in the past, and how the influenced our history and culture and society, and so it's just good to have somebody from today. Today that can can speak for today. I know you're just one person I. Know You don't speak on behalf of all indigenous people on the continent. I know you don't speak on behalf of everyone from the Oneida nation. You probably don't speak on behalf of your family either. It's good to have other perspectives because Caleb. I realized that we're limited in our scope. I wanted to have somebody come on. That could give me an. Update, but just what is Oneida culture like today? And what are the issues that your people are facing today? And then I also WANNA. Look towards the future a lot of times we get bogged down today's issues. Today's Oracle stuff, and as this podcast is recorded as different, but I realized that years from now decades from now hopefully, when people are still listening to you and me working back through the archives that you know we can, we can look forward and see what what does the future stand? What does the to row treaty mean for both our peoples in the future going forward. So that's a long winded. Introduction, BUT I want to turn over your Harlan just give you really open ended just give me a background about yourself and your upbringing. Yeah, thank you, thank you for the opportunity again. I think that what you said is probably key at. If if you're just tuning in if tuning in because of me than you've heard me, say this before if tuning into your recoil, ledges, mystery podcasts, and you're hearing me for the. The first time I think it is important that we're hitting on that concept. The Ngoni people are are still here and I, even like like I had to check myself I was helping my daughter my my nine year old at the time ten year old daughter. Do you a project for history? And it's it's difficult to sift through the history texts and to see them. Talk about how we were as people like, say we. We are as a people like we were still doing. Ceremonies were still. I'm literally trying to grow white corn, even as we speak like I'm. I'm sitting here. Thinking created rain last night because we're not something that their lives in a textbook sitting on sitting on a shelf somewhere, that's something that we want to bring a so having opportunity to come on with you today to to really remind people that can onto says about about living. Living History. History is something we're still living right now is super cool I. one of the reasons I like to get on. This side of the microphone is is that I don't have to talk about myself, so it's it's different since since I now you're the one that's technically behind the Mike but I mean I can say is that it's What it really pride myself on is is activity in my own community. I went and I volunteered tirelessly from a friendship center work at the forgery native. Friendship Centre by day. I volunteered there before I worked there I volunteered at the other friendship center in our region, the Niagara Regional Native Center and that for everything we do is indigenous people I. Think I think it's really evaluated on a on a community level and I. think that's something that we've actively done. Is that individuals? Success is just not the metric. That's not the measurement for for who we are as. at least in in the community circles that I that I hang out so so for me. My production into community was movement called idle no more if you will see American listeners after how how familiar they'll be with that movement, but there was an effort in in two thousand, twelve, twenty, thirteen to to really got environmental measures to take away protection from wire to fundamentally changed the relationship between the government and indigenous people. In four women stood up and said that we're not going to be idle anymore. We will be idle, no more and we need to. We need to put a stop to this. And our people got behind those women and all of our people. It felt like like there was a total consensus in our community that had an off and I saw the seismic shift almost ten years ago. Where people like we have to do something so so for me, that was almost may may rebirth into community I was I was just living regular life, and you know trying to trying to hold down a good job trying to buy a house and worrying about the things that normal people. People worry about and then. I saw this groundswell of activity in our community, and it really opened. My Eyes Act that we need to work together to federal sell change

Bakari Sellers talks about the death of George Floyd
"Are really looking forward to the next gas considering all the things that have transpired especially up in Minneapolis. Our next guest. We just played a clip from CNN. This morning is Bakari sellers. Who grew up in the State of South Carolina? His father a noted civil rights pioneer. He's been very close to the South Carolina Program Practicing Law for many many years and continuing to to this day in Colombia. And as we say hello to Macari I want to ask him about Certainly the news of the day but we also want to mention for just a second to his brand new book that came out the other day my vanishing country Cari sellers. Thank you very very much for joining us. It's great to have you on the program. Man I I love your show Thankful for this platform and thank you for having me today on. What is a a truly tough day for most of us in this great country? I WanNa talk about that but I just wanted hug for a second. About what compelled you and really push you to writing this book. I mean you're still very young man usually Mars for old decrepit people like me but still on your your early thirties. I'm really interested in how you got to this point. Yeah so you know I. I wanted to write a political book and I'll be honest which Paul that no one wanted to buy it. And so when I sat down and talked about my story coming from the Orangeburg massacre in February eighth to sixty eight where my father was shot. subsequently imprison all the officers. Who fired shots into? The group of students were charged and found guilty. Three young men died in Smith. Samuel eminent Delano Middleton My father was shot and imprisoned. I chronicled that all the way through my rise to being young black elected official in the country. All the way through Charleston South Carolina. Where I lost my good friend Clemente. I'm in the Charleston massacre and so I just highlight the ups and downs and the trauma that comes along with being a person of color and what I the reason I wrote. This book is so that we could All have some sense of understanding so we begin to have conversations about healing this country And you know your book comes out during a pandemic and it also comes out around the death of Ahmad. Aubrey the desktop Brianna Taylor. Now we had this death in Minneapolis. And so I think it's an evergreen book and You know it's a discussion. It's difficult but necessary to have the car. It's it's so easy for all of us to talk about. No one should act this way but I wanNA get deeper because in watching what you did this morning and really knowing you quite well and hearing you speak out on so many other issues. I really want you to get to the heart of the matter here. this is bigger than than an isolated incident in. Minneapolis or Georgia or somewhere else. Is it not it is and you know. It's it's not just myself but you see you see all these athletes you see Lebron James of the world you see. I'm all the list of NBA players goes far and wide and even young college athletes are taking span. Because Y- for me personally it's about what do I tell my black children in this country and I know a lot of your listeners are like here we go again a. Why are we going down this path? But it's the fact that I have to have conversations with children that others do not and you know the crime that was Allegedly committed was forgery of a twenty dollar bill. He didn't even know that there's evidence to say he didn't even know that the twenty dollar bill was fake But regardless the penalty should not be a death penalty crime and so now I have a fifteen year. Old Daughter should be fifteen on June first. Who is about to Get her permit. You wouldn't do. I tell her. What do I teach her? I'm raising twins that are seventeen months old and one is a boy stokely. What do I tell him in? So that pain and this is not new You know it goes back to Emmett. Till and mega rivers Jimmy Jackson in the Orangeburg massacre the massacre on the campus of Jesse Jackson State in Kent State all the way through The recent incidents that we've had and so the question is when will it stop and I you know. I think that we have to begin to have difficult conversations in this country and some people don't want to have but I'm pressing forward to make to let people know that there is a real pain in this country and and there's painful by a lot of people today particularly black people in this country and we have to hear that pain. He wrote the other day. Being Black in America is almost perpetual state of grieving. I I know I know you well enough to understand but I want you to explain to to those out there and your political commentator. You're you're you know what I'm referring to. How do you explain that to the rest of us? You know. I I say that before you turn me off turn me down I say? Why don't you turn me up and let's have a conversation? Where is listening and understand and I come from a place where my father was literally shot a law enforcement and I had the utmost respect for law enforcement officers. My that was literally shot. My father was taken away from my family because he was actually arrested. For that night I father became the first and only one man riot in the history of this country. He was charged tried and convicted of rioting because he was a member of the Civil Rights Organization. They denied bond and they housed them on death row. My mother had to carry my sister my oldest sister their oldest child. She carried and gave birth while my father was in prison. And so when you talk about that trauma that emerged from my father went through the burden of being a black man in the south with felony. You carry all of that. And I'd had a great deal of success in my life and my job is to make sure that others are able to get access to those blessings as well and then I lived through the Charleston massacre. Paul like my good friend. Clemente painting he was was murdered in Bible. Study You know he let somebody come into his church. He set them beside him and he was shot in the net. And so when you think about all of these things and you think about the fact that I'm now living for them and there's no one there's absolutely no one in their right mind. They can lie to you. They can call in today until you that amount all day deserve today. Brianna Taylor. She was an emt worker. They served been no knock warrant. Went in and shot her and they can't tell you. The George Minneapolis deserved I either. And so that is what I'm saying. We have to begin to understand the reasons why and before you turn the conversations like this down. Let's turn them up. And let's have an honest conversation about how we move forward to broaden this because you of all people know it's twenty twenty. The political season never ends and a lot of people bacar just already made up their mind not so much the election but about everything this conversation. We're having the pandemic and I want you to try to take us there because I preach on this program. I don't want to talk about politics. But you can't get away from politics and especially at a time like this one hundred thousand people who died Do through the growing virus The overwhelming majority of these individuals especially in these large cities. The data points are are people of Color. I mean we have to talk about that This season is upon us. And you know regardless I want people to exercise their right to vote their right to vote safely You know you politics part of everything we do in life and you know I ask. 'cause I'm a big game cut fan and I was like the way to get you know my game friends and my. I don't have any clemson friends but you know the the people who go to school at Clinton though the way you get them to stay at home and stay inside and say that if we do not stay inside we won't have football season and so we're living. A lot of people are living through a great deal of trauma You know we're we're pausing we aren't able to go out. We aren't able to be with loved ones. If you get sick and have to go to the hospital you have to go by yourself

That guides uses to a twitter moments page with facts checks and new stories about trump's unsubstantiated claims trump replied on twitter accusing the platform of interfering in the twenty twenty presidential election and insisting that I as president will not allow this to happen.
