"general house" Discussed on American Revolution Podcast

"Hello thank you for joining the american revolution today. Episode one eighty two occupied philadelphia. As i mentioned back in episode one sixty general house. British army entered philadelphia on september. Twenty sixth seventeen seventy seven a prior to the occupation philadelphia had been not only the seat of the continental congress. It was also the largest city in british north america. It had a population of about forty thousand compared to twenty five thousand for new york city and fifteen thousand four boston general had hoped that its capture would finally bring the rebels to their senses or at least win him. Some praise back in london in the end. The capture accomplished not much of anything beyond being a career. Ender for the british commander of north america. The army found itself surrounded by hostile enemy with a great deal of difficulty keeping its own army properly supplied. Benjamin franklin's comment about philadelphia having captured general. How must've run. True for many british leader's having occupied the city. The british began setting up defenses. The burnish had slipped past the continental army to enter the city without having a major battle after brandy. Wine the continentals. However we're still in the field. An attack on the city was not out of the question. Captain mantra sewer house. Engineer took responsibility for the defenses. He proposed building a series of ten redoubts along a line. North of the city connected by defensive lines which stretched from the delaware river on the east to the schuylkill river on the west hatred. Out sat along a road that lead into the city modulus or later added two additional redoubts. Just north of the main defensive line to serve as outposts which could alert the main body in the event of an attack watchers surveyed. The proposed defensive line with general cornwallis who gave final approval. The next problem was actually building. These defenses the soldiers had to be ready for combat so the work fell on the civilian population. The call for laborers led to almost no volunteers. Most of the city's remaining population was quaker. Which had religious prescriptions against working on military projects beyond that the work was hard and the pay was terrible. General cornwallis had to threaten to conscripts locals before he could finally get about two hundred men to work on the project that was about half of the amount that they wanted as a result. The construction took many weeks before any of the defenses. Were even close to ready for garrison. Further slowing the project was that captain madrazo was also tasked with to open up the delaware river for weeks after the british occupation. The americans still held the forts below philadelphia. This prevented the british navy from reaching the city. How could not bring any supplies up the river until the british took control so in addition to defending against a land attack from the north the british still had to assist the navy to the south in removing the forts along the delaware..

"It's hard to say for certain of how genuinely run to resign. Whether he was bluffing in hopes that it would get the ministry to give him the reinforcements and command authority that he thought he needed to win. Or more likely somewhere in between how said that he did not think he could win without more reinforcements. If he was not going to get them he did not see a path to victory. London could either supply the troops or vicky new leader. Who thought he could do. Better secretary of state lord germain had already made clear that he was not going to raise more armies in any substantial numbers beyond those sent in seventeen seventy six loss of an army of over eight thousand and the saratoga campaign. the british army would have an even smaller force to work with going forward by this time. Most of parliament was laying the blame for this debacle on lord germain. He was the man responsible for authorising for coins campaign. And for making sure that burgoyne received the necessary support to complete his mission including making sure that general house army woodwork with burgoyne as originally planned germain had allowed general how to sail off in his attempt to capture philadelphia while the philadelphia campaign was successful. It also meant that. How was unavailable to assist going. Many officials in london believe this support could have prevented burgoyne surrender house letter of resignation. Made it easier to try to make him the fall guy for this whole mess. Germain insisted that general howe had failed to support burgoyne as planned and that house should take responsibility for his decision to sail off for philadelphia. Officials also laid blame on general house brother. Admiral richard how for the navy's failure to control the coast and deal with smugglers and privateers that supported the rebellion. They argued that. The admiral spent too much time helping his brother. In support of the army. By early january the ministry also had a request from admiral. How that he be relieved of his command. In north america lord germain who never really liked the house was offer replacing them in early january he was pushing for such every amherst to take command. The sixty year. Old general at brought victory in america during the french and indian war. He was highly respected and was a higher ranking general than how in fact amherst at been germain's preference before the ministry selected william how the reason amherst did not get the job in seventeen seventy six was that he did not want it..

Trump blocks postal funds to prevent expanded mail-in voting

"President Trump's threat to block funding for mail in ballots as well as for the US Postal Service to deliver them. He's very openly against mail in ballots, and here is what he told Fox News. Let's listen. But if they don't get those two items, that means you can't have universal mail in voting because they're not equipped to have it. So there's been a lot of backlash to this on Dunder the direction of his new postmaster General Lewis to joy, one of the president's donors. The Postal Service has been removing mailboxes and high speed sorting machines around the country. Right, you know, pressuring Ukraine to announce an investigation into Joe Biden might be hard for a lot of people to follow. But everyone understands what slower postal service means not just for mail in ballots, but for a central mail like veterans checks and prescriptions. You know, A recent Pew poll showed 91% of Americans have a favorable view of the post office. Wow. The Post Office you could say is not just one of the most important institutions in American life if they beloved institution. And so this is one of the biggest stories around the country today. Thebes president hasn't ruled out a compromise. But he has said that if they don't get extra money, which he's against, they can't carry out increased vote by mail. And there were protests outside the postmaster general's house here in Washington, D C yesterday and the president expressed his support for him last night to S O. That's the one side what the Democrats saying. There's a lot of pressure on Democrats to come back to Washington stopped their recess hold hearings on the changes that the post office has made cost cutting measures that have the result in slower mail delivery for ballots and also for essential services. And Democrats want to have people come out in public either testified to say they haven't gotten their medicine their checks their balance their ballots to show how the president is undermining this basic institution of a democratic society. The president on the other hand, even though he says he wouldn't rule out a compromise, has said he believes that voting by mail not only Increases fraud. There's no evidence of that, but also increases the number of Democratic votes and hurts Republicans. There's no evidence of that, either, because there are red states like Utah that have universal vote by mail and the president himself votes by mail.

"Thank you for joining the American Revolution Today episode one fifty three. Staten Island and talk it. A few weeks ago I talked about General House decision to put most of his army aboard ship and sail out to sea. No one was sure where he would land, but most thought the ultimate destination was Philadelphia. When the fleet sailed away from New, York City in late, July seventeen, seventy seven. How left General Henry Clayton in command of the city with a few soldiers, most of whom were Haitians or local militia. General! How wanted his best combat soldiers with him for the Conquest of Philadelphia? In preparation for the removal of so many troops from New York, city, the British abandoned the even tiny tow- holds across the Hudson River in New Jersey which they had held a winter. Places like Elizabeth, town and boy and Brunswick. Although this meant completely abandoning, New Jersey the British did not want to leave any isolated outposts. That could be subject to attack. Putting the Hudson River between the two armies was a pretty substantial barrier for any army to cross. The river was deep enough at all points that no army could Ford it from New Jersey to New York. British forces. However, we're still spread out all over New York City area. including the occupation of all of Long Island Staten Island and Manhattan Island. This was probably about two thousand square miles of land, being guarded by only a few thousand dollars. With, the departure of House fleet, even holding that New York City area left some units relatively isolated and in areas, potentially vulnerable.

"A hatter by trade fardon had joined the army in seventeen seventy five as a corporal but quickly became an officer and rose through the ranks. Barton was in the Rhode Island Army not the militia. He was stationed at Tiverton. Just across the psychotic channel from the British garrison at the northern tip of Aquidneck island like many Americans Barton was disheartened to learn about the British capture of General Charles Lee. In December seventeen seventy six Lee had before visited Rhode Island and was regarded as the best officer in the continental army over the next few months. Colonel Barton developed a plan to kidnap General Prescott in hopes of exchanging him for Major General Lee. In June seventeen. Seventy seven Barton received intelligence from a slave who had escaped from aquidneck island. That Prescott slept in the offering house each night a few days later. A British deserter confirmed the Information. Parton was familiar with the location of the overeating. Vring house having been stationed near. Before the British invasion Barton proposed a small squad of well. Boats would row across the bay at night. Grab Prescott and return with the prisoner before the British were alerted. It was an extremely high risk plan. The British maintain many patrols both on land and in the surrounding waters at night. If even one person spotted them and sounded an alarm they would almost certainly be killed or captured farting new. Secrecy was the key to his plan. He told his commanding officer a few other. Select leaders also were informed including the governor of Rhode Island but largely. The plan remained on a need to know basis. He asked five of his regimental officers to volunteer for what he described as a dangerous mission but would give no details. The officer is obtained the five necessary well boats for the mission. Shortly before the raid. He asked for forty volunteers from his regiment. Again saying it was for a dangerous mission but giving no details every man in the regiment stepped forward to volunteer so pardon had to select forty men who he knew to be fit and experienced rowers at least four were former aquidneck residents who would serve as guides since most of the early raids had taken place on the eastern side of Aquidneck island and because the over in house was closer to the western side. Barton opted to launches raid from the West on the night of July fourth as the Rhode Islanders distracted the British with an Independence Day. Celebration of Cannon Fire Barton's five. Well boats made their way to Bristol and then over to Hog island just northwest of Aquidneck. It was only then that he informed the officers and men of the details of his plan with too many British ships in Narragansett Bay Barton moved as well boats further west to Warwick on the night of July sixth instead of a short row across to Aquidneck the team would make a longer trip along the west coast of prudence island. This was a much longer route but would keep them more than a mile away from any British warships and would allow them to use the island as a screen for many British. Lookouts continued. Planning and poor weather left team waiting until July tenth. During that Time Barton. Track the patterns of the British patrol boats in the Bay farting gave his final instructions to his men. Strictly follow orders. Keep quiet at all times. Don't bring any liquor and refrain. From any looting the boats had to row ten miles in the dark farting put a pole with a white rag at the top so that the other boats could identify the lead boat the menus muffled oars and benefited from a cloudy night as they move through the water they could hear British patrols shouting all's well to each other across the bay by about eleven thirty PM. The boats landed at Aquidneck island. The team left five men one with each of the boats and then proceeded to make the one mile march to the offering house in about twenty minutes at the House. The unit divided into five groups as planned three of them would surround three sides of the house while a fourth commanded by Barton would enter through the front door. The fifth group acted as reserve in case needed anywhere as Barton approached the front door just before midnight. The century called out for him to identify himself. Barton eventually shouted out that they were friends. The century then ask for the countersign in other words the password to identify that they were really British soldiers. Barton still approaching said that they did not have it but asked if he had seen any deserters that night by that time. Barton's team was close enough to grab the centuries musket and threatened him with death if he made a sound next. The group found that the front door was locked. According to legend one of the soldiers and African American rush forward and bashed out the door with his head inside the team quickly found over and his son but could not locate general Prescott when Barton threaten to burn down the house. Voice called out. The soldiers rushed to the room fighting a man sitting on the bed. Still Groggy and in his nightclothes fardon asked if he was general. Prescott responded Yes sir. Barton said you are my prisoner and Prescott replied. I acknowledge it. Barton's aide. Lieutenant William Barrington. Heard the noise and attempted to slip out his bedroom window BARRINGTON had been taken prisoner with Barton back in seventy five and had no desire to repeat the experience. Unfortunately for Barrington. One of Barton's teams was waiting outside that window and took him prisoner anyway. The teams collected Prescott Barrington and the century they attempt to take over and his son as well but when the to put up a struggle they decided they were not worth the hassle and left the Tories behind. They were focused on getting Prescott back to the boats. Prescott and Barrington. Were still in their nightclothes and barefoot when Prescott complained that his feet were hurt while walking over the rough ground the team simply picked him up and carried him the entire time inside the House. A taken only about seven minutes. It was still about midnight when the team began. Its march back to the boats back at the over in house and undetected dragoon. Who had been sleeping at? The house dashed a quarter mile to the guardhouse to alert the guards but when challenged e thought the century who is challenging him was an American so he ran back to the over in house without giving the news. Shortly after a slave from the house did alert the guard. The guard then jumped on a horse and galloped two miles to the British camp at the north to raise alarm the British. I assume that the raiders had come from the east where most the earlier raids had originated. They searched along the east coast of Aquidneck island but found nothing. It wasn't until around two. Am that they considered that. The raiders may have escaped across Narragansett Bay to the West. They fired alarm rockets to alert the navy ships but the Navy officers did not know what the alarm was about by the time they launched a boat to go to Aquidneck island. Learn to the kidnapping and return to the ship. It was already four. Am and the raiders. Were already back in Warwick. The entire raid had taken about six and a half hours. General Prescott Kidnapping surprised everyone. Americans were delighted while the British were shocked. Colonel Barton became an instant hero. The Continental Congress sent him. Congratulations and promised him a ceremonial sword. One of three issued to officers outside the continental army during the war several months later. Congress also commissioned Barton as a full colonel in the Continental Army. Barton's team received a reward of one thousand one hundred and twenty dollars from the Rhode Island legislature. One thousand for the capture of the general a hundred for Lieutenant Barton and Twenty Four Century. Barrington was also the nephew of British. Secretary of war. Lord Barrington making him a particularly valuable prize. It turns out the British Century was not exactly the loyalist British subject. He attempted to desert the army several times prior and apparently took this opportunity to leave the British army and start a new life in America. He was locked up for a time and exchange for another prisoner. However during the exchange he simply disappeared and never showed up at the British camp. General Prescott Lieutenant Barrington were moved to Providence Prescott except his situation as a prisoner and signed up. Parole agreement knocked to try to escape later. The Americans moved into Lebanon Connecticut where it would be harder for the British to launch a raid to recapture him. At first the Americans plan to give him free rein of the town as they did other officers general Washington or the press copy locked up. This was in retaliation for the way the British kept generally locked up and refused to allow him free reign as a prisoner in New York. Almost immediately general Washington reached out to general how to discuss exchanging Prescott for Lee. But how was in no hurry if thought was a more valuable prisoner that it was not clear if the Americans would even honor the exchange and he was still unclear on whether London considerably a prisoner of war or a deserter. Fi December. Seventeen seventy seven. How received word from London that he could treat Lee as a prisoner of war. Lee was given parole to move about New York City. Prescott then receive the same privileges in Connecticut. It would still take nearly a year for the two sides to agree on an exchange of prisoners Prescott and Lee would both rejoin their respective armies. In the spring of Seventeen seventy eight in Newport Brigadier General Francis. Smith took command of the British army. There he immediately increased security to prevent further raids short time later. General House sent Major General Robert. Pto To become the fifth commander of this post in less than a year in London. Prescott became the butt of jokes. This was the second time he had been taken prisoner by. The Americans rumors circulated that he had been caught in bed with the farmer's daughter and carried away naked. This of course was not true but rumor. Sti- hard or significant was the charge that he had been negligent in taking quarters away from the army and was prone to attack. Prescott faced a court martial upon return to the army is fellow officers agreed that he was more unlucky. The negligent his choice of housing on a secure island between his two armed military camps was a reasonable decision one similar to made by commanders before and after him he was acquitted and returned to duty during his captivity. London promoted him to Major General before that he had only held the temporary rank of major general. In America. General League would also return to continental duty as well but that of course is a topic for a future episode. Next week we're going to return to upstate. New York where General Burgoyne must contend with the murder of Jane mccrea..

"I just want time to stop for a week so I can catch up and start fresh!"

"Listening to rights in that. She is a mother of two ages. Three and a half and six months ago has a new baby and went back to work after her second child at eighty percent so that was four days a a week however she says my job responsibilities did not drop by twenty percents. It was only the time in which to do them that dropped. I use my day off every week week to run around like a crazy person and take care of Appointments Laundry General House cleanup meal prep errands etc.. Both boys are in day. Careful time which is located right next door to our house. She says she is Works in healthcare. She's a genetic counselor does research while of this means that there are few hard deadlines in her field and thus as far her boss has been content with things just taking longer. She had voted the idea of extra help when a colleague left a few years ago but not happen so while she says her boss is is fine with her level of productivity. She finds that she has increasingly behind on everything work due to the lack of time home life due to bringing work home to make up for the lack of time I met her job. She has a two hour commute meaning hour each way And try it's still pumping so she's trying to fit in two to three pump sessions per day while at work. She says she also runs at least three or four days a week very early in the morning in order to save her sanity but sometimes questions if the lack of sleep is worth it she says I can think of some changes to put in place to streamline things moving moving forward but no a number of small tweaks will help me dig out of my current whole what I really want is for the world to stand still for a week so that I can get a whole bunch of stuff done and then start fresh given that this is unlikely to happen. Do you guys have suggestions for how to play catch up. I love how she puts that 'cause I feel like I've had that exact. I want everybody else several occasions. I mean it's just it's actually fun concept to dream about. I think because the subject of many novel in fact. I think that's true. Well yeah that's like a big MIRA commies. He's all about the clean slate where no one has anything to do. Find yourself in a cabin in a beautiful woodland setting in northern Japan But Yeah No. It's true I I mean it's such a nice idea. Yeah and yet. We had a couple of thoughts for our listener. I'm sure lots of people listening to this. Have thoughts as well and we welcome you writing in with your ideas. Hope you'll post them on my blog on our instagram account. When when this episode runs because I think this is a situation in a lot of us have found ourselves in and I think people have a lot of great ideas for her? My first you know. Get on my soapbox here which people probably know what's coming the hazard of going to eighty percent. You know I totally see the appeal in her case of the four day week because she has such a long commute like this is one of the situations where slightly makes more sense than than others where people are like Oh your workload will be reduced somehow magically but you still need to come in every day in her case she is actually going to afford a week so it's more like it's an eighty percents schedule but as she said you know if there's no corresponding drop in workload. She's just working fulltime and not getting paid for right and it's possible that she's doing it in thirty two hours a week. It's also possible that she is getting most of this time on her day off on the weekends so that she's working closer closer to forty anyway and if that's the case that that's a little bit more troublesome the fact that she says she's using her day off to run errands and things like what is this is this is also one of the things that bothers me because it clearly she's doing genetic research. She has a lot of specialized training. I'm not sure what the economic omic efficiency is here of having somebody who has that specialized high end role in the labor market. Doing this stuff that is unpaid labor with her her day off of. I'm not sure that that was a great trade off so you know what can she do. One option is to try and convince her boss that she's working full-time so let's is pay her for full-time she could keep time log to show this of the hour. She's working at nights weekends in her day off or she could just go in and ask to sub a work from home day for her day off so that she is in fact working five days. It's just one day from home Not Go in and say two days off. I don't know if she has equipment she has to be using but it's up some of it is more spreadsheets or computer based or whatever. Maybe you'd hunt though this person may actually be doing patient care on. Yeah Yeah because she's doing research that she says she worked home so clearly. You're right you're right even if she has some clinical role should probably doesn't need to. I have facetime with patients every day yet. Probably young only one day per week probably more when that's not the case so it sounds like it might might be possible to do the email and the research component of it running models or whatever on that day at home or something. Thanks so and that doesn't change her workload again like she still has the workload but I think she'd feel a lot better about if she's getting paid one hundred percent versus eighty percent right. I mean that does make lunch shore. It'd probably would allow her to to not be so behind and she would be less stress. Yes

Whistleblower complaint stems from Trump's call with Ukraine's president

"Breaking news CNN reporting the president trump press Ukraine's president to investigate Joe Biden's son and this is part of the whistle blower complaint to the Intelligence Communities Inspector General House House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says this about the allegations and team trump's efforts to keep the complaint hidden quote if the President has done what has been alleged that he is stepping into a dangerous minefield with serious S. repercussions for his administration and our democracy out right now our chief national security correspondent Jim Shudo former assistant secretary for the Department of Homeland Security under President Obama uh-huh Juliet and the former assistant us attorney for the Southern District of New York Harry Sandik so Jim let me just start here with some basic one of the things that goes to the heart of this. We're learning there was no explicit quid pro quo on this particular phone call right it was on July twenty fifth but we know the president president trump asked for an investigation and into Joe Biden's family eight times on that call and then he delayed the aid to Ukraine. He didn't release the aid until three congressional committees started investigating that call his and Rudy Giuliani's ties to Ukraine. Could there be a quid pro quo that we don't yet know about him well. The timing is indicative here. We don't know what we what we do know. Though is substantive enough right. I mean remember during the during the two thousand sixteen campaign as a candidate president trump welcomed welcomed from a foreign government dirt on his political opponent so here we have in two thousand nine thousand nine hundred as president with all the powers that that brings. He pressured a foreign government to dig up dirt on his political opponents son. That's a qualitative step forward to use of the office this for political gain and listen. There's a lot more to learn about this into your question Erin. We don't know there was an explicit connection between that demand eight eight times in one phone call and a few days later the delay of that aid I mean the timing is suspicious but even if you don't get to that point using the pressure of the office with the intent of going after a political opponents. It's something that at a minimum should cause pause and that listen listen folks at home after the side of that something that they're comfortable with their president doing Harry could what trump did be illegal. Yes it could be. There are a number of different in legal theories bribery extortion campaign finance violations. They all do require a quid pro quo but the quid pro quo doesn't have to be expressed a a signed contract or a handshake it can be implicit taken as an understanding from what is going on as as Jim just said the common common thread of the Criminal Law theories is you may not use a public office for private gain and by a number of different theories that is against the law and that seems to be what's happening here and Juliette when when it's interesting when Harry says it it doesn't have to be an explicit claim signed contract of a quid pro quo Alex Marquardt or just reported on Ukraine's readout of that call

"Her attacks against the attorney general yesterday saying he committed a crime by lying to congress. She also indicated that if anybody else did that it would have been considered a crime, and that nobody is above the law. Also when asked if she thought that bar should go to jail, she stopped shy and said, well, there's a process involved here in the committee will act upon how we proceed now. That's after the fact that you heard from the announcement as the attorney general was not there yesterday in the house and the house committee began the hearing and basically opening the door with an empty seat saved for the attorney general House Judiciary committee chair Jerry Nadler threatened to hold bar in contempt of congress for not showing up to that hearing. Now, that's a tough road to haul. When you haven't subpoenaed the attorney general to be there. He was coming voluntarily. So that might be difficult, but it would stand a light that based upon the fact that data ler and the house had put through a subpoena to try to get an unredacted copy of the mullahs report that was supposed to be turned over by the department of Justice on Wednesday. And was not that they may be able to hold bar in contempt for that. But that's yet to be senior. Meanwhile, it looks like Democrats are definitely ratcheting up their attack on Bill bar. So if you cut through all the feeder, I mean, so basically would just having the conversation about the redacted report not being provided a portion of it there. Things that went hand in hand here. One was that the attorney general said that he would be coming to speak on the been regards to the report for everybody in both the Senate and house and he did so for the Senate, but refused to do. So for the house after they had changed the rules. They have the ability in the house to create a hearing on any level that they want. They have the ability to conduct their hearings in any fashion that they're choosing. And apparently, they're choosing wasn't a reminder to Republicans of the time Republicans changed format and allowed a female attorney to question Christine blazey Ford during the cavenaugh confirmation hearing sort of tit for tat moment if you will. And when they made that decision in the house voted that ability to have lawyers openly discuss in question, the attorney general the attorney general decided not to go. So that's what started this whole process. Now, you've got two things one of which is a voluntary statement from the attorney general the other being the fact that he didn't turn over information. That was demanded by the Senate is questionable right now is to wear contempt may fall. And of course, what happened with a lot of play. On social media on the tube. Yesterday. Democratic Representative Steve Cohen, Tennessee, mocking the AG is being chicken. He showed up a bucket a KFC put a ceramic chicken in the seat where bar was supposed to be. I don't know you Michael, but I've never been big fan of prompt commerce. You know, I've never been a big. A big fan. Carrot top made himself available. To to to coach him through. This was kind of interesting. But it was that moment where that's the one thing. If I could say, I'm a little angry Bill bars that just allowed every Representative there in the house, of course to have cameras and Lord knows. I love their camera on you stand in the way of a a Representative and camera time you're in harm's way. And we saw them all rushing to the cameras yesterday. Because Bill wasn't there? I expected to see Gallagher pop up to. Yeah. Have Gallagher smashed the ceramic chicken would have been a perfect day. What a day. All right. Michael Barr from our twenty four seven network. Thanks, michael. Onto it's nine minutes after six o'clock, which whatnot sense. You know? I mean, we're supposed to take these people seriously. The Trump administration looking to tweak some rules.

From his roles as CEO president and member of the board of directors effective immediately retire completely on June thirtieth, of course, he took over after. The former CEO was removed because Wells Fargo was found in violation of opening all of those Bank accounts fraudulently to meet sales goals. And then after that train just continued the bad news discontinued a lot of people are saying, Tim Sloan the CEO at stepping down was attempting to clean up the banks act, and they see him as a scapegoat of the Trump administration reversing itself on a budget request to eliminate funding for the Special Olympics.

An Iranian pop star challenges the regime

"Song is a protest against the war that marked Iran for eight years the war with with Iraq, nNcholas Pelham is the economists Middle East correspondent he's been writing about a new song called pari som- that means broken stone. And it's by Iranian singer, Mechta Yara he in this video he shows missiles falling on families. He shows families queuing it to have because the land is impartial rivers have been diverted their children being sent into minefields by generals houses. Collapsing. The soon as the ribbon is cut because the so poorly built it's really an indictment of the Iranian regime. Should be to numbers money, but it's an odd direction for Mr. Jahr, he to take he used to be pretty beloved of the regime. He sings beautiful renditions of the call to prayer in two thousand seventeen he won the best album prize from the ministry of his lung guidance and culture that it's hard to imagine. Now, he's things dressed as a general Kelly. He's trying to be an Iranian general, but he has a swastika on his arm, and there's a particular dramatic lyric in which he says another generation went to war and did not return on the last one of this tribe, but tribe with no food or water. So why the change of he was a regime favorite? Why is he now this provocateur a lot of it has to do with his origin? He's from the province of quizzes, Dan, which used to be called stone. It's a mainly our province on the Gulf bordering Iraq. But it's a province which has been devastated by the war by Cincinnati elect. He's somebody who seems to have an increasingly conscious sensitive Arab identity. This comes at a time where Iran is under enormous economic stress, and there's a a real struggle for resources and the periphery which tends to be mainly non Persian an ethnic feels that it's losing out to the Persian core, Iran, Matt Yara himself said when ASTA defend his song. He said it's a duty of artists to convey, the voice of the people to the authorities. So in on it self the people have a pretty big fans of this work is images of him being put up in shops. And has the reaction been similarly favorable throughout Iran or just in his home region? If you see a hero in his own province. Elsewhere, particularly on the part of hardliners within the regime, he sees something of a of a traitor. He's betraying the martyrs of of the revolution. They see him as of stooge for Arabs, somebody cool to singer Saddam Hussein. And he's seen as the troublemaker which is particularly worrying for the authorities because it comes at a time with just on the eve of celebrating the fortieth anniversary of the nineteen seventy nine revolution. So what are the thirties doing about it? Or what do you think they will do a lot of contradictory reports at the time as to whether he had been banned or not it does appear that he was summoned by the ministry of his guidance, and according to an official from that ministry. It was said that he he repented and this was denied by Maddie are he's he's. Said that he wouldn't repent that he stood for what he said in his his song. He did try and say that it was more general and not specifically aimed your thirties writing. It's very clear to most rain that this is really Matt Yara representing hoses stone against Tehran against the center and asking for summer address, right through the ministry of guidance. Having said that will we call them on this. And he repented his just needing to be seen to at least wagged a finger at him. Is that the idea it is quite striking at the moment. How the authorities seem to be doing the utmost not to inflame sentiment within Iran. They're very conscious of the year ago. There were mass protests across the country, particularly in these provinces, which are on the periphery with concentration of non Persian minorities. And so they do seem to be playing it down nNcholas. Thank you very much. Jason. Thank you.
