"Back to the bench, Shapiro show. I am not Ben Shapiro. You can tell because I speak more slowly and I have a deeper voice and I am not Celebrating Rosh Hashanah. Today, though, I wish all of our Jewish friends and listeners happy Radja, Shauna every year around this time, Ben I think he just makes them up at this point is a lot of Jewish holidays. He never shows up to the office. But it's really my distinct pleasure to be with all of you and to be with my Next? Yes, because It has been 20 years since 9 11. I am a Native New Yorker. I just flew in. Actually, from New York last night. I remember exactly where I was. When the 9 11 attacks happened. My mother was working in the city. I remember she came right back up, and, uh, not everyone's parents did come right back up. I was I guess I was 10 years old 10 or 11 years old 11 years old. And so I remember it clearly. But if you were even a couple years younger than I am You probably don't know. I think I'm sort of the last age group that really remembers that. And so there are a lot of kids today who are in college or certainly in high school who have no recollection. We're not even alive in many cases for the 9 11 attacks. And so my guest. Nils Jorgensen, a former New York Fire Department lieutenant. He's got a tremendous new podcast 20 for 20. You can find it at 24 20 podcast dot com. To remind people what it was so that we really never forget what happened that day. And especially now, as we're debating what our foreign policy should be moving forward, it's very important to remember. What happened on that day in the first place Nails. Thank you so much for being here. Well, thank you, sir. I appreciate it. It's an honor and, uh, glad to be here so Nails. I can't believe it's been 20 years. I mean, as a political matter, 9 11 is the defining event of my life and it for everyone that I I really I know And yet it's not a defining event for lots of people who are who are younger. What? What are we supposed to remember? I mean, of all the the images of that day of all of the stories that came out What is it? What are we supposed to remember? 20 years later? Well, I I too feel that it's been forgotten. Um, I would love for everyone to remember the sacrifice. The acts of love and kindness and and just selfless, selfless, uh, Heroic acts. I mean, people who were on duty who were obligated to go in and rescue people and, unfortunately give their lives. But then, on top of that was The people who aren't obligated the many civilians that put their lives on the line to get fellow humans out of those buildings and the thousands and thousands of Americans. That team That flooded into New York to help to volunteer to hand out food to hand out, you know, uh, water and and just anything they could help in the process. And then To me. The most significant day was 9 12. When thousands and thousands of people lined the West Side highway with signs and American flags and hugging and crying, each with each other and greeting the responders as they marched down into their duty assignment. Um, that unity it's gone, and I don't know why. And I think one of our main goals is to try to bring that sense of unity back as a country. Um, we felt The day of 9 11 was just horror. It was it was, But then 9 12 started this whole blanket of love and unity. And it's It's faded away. And, um, we're on a mission to try to bring some great stories out of great people from across section of society of all races and genders, and just who who stepped up and did the right thing. You know it's funny, because I I remember it so clearly, But I actually haven't thought about that aspect of 9 11, and the days that followed. All I think about is the horror. All I think about is the images on T V. But what came afterward was Certainly the greatest national unity that I have I have ever seen in my lifetime. And you're right. That has gone away now and some of these stories, you know, I noticed that you're wearing a cross necklace and I think of the first confirmed casualty of 9 11. Catholic priest, Father, Michael Judge, My own priest ran down and saw father judge being carried into ST Peter's first parish in New York. My my priest, friend Father, George Butler, Another hero of that day Rand out, he ran from midtown down to the World Trade Center to give wartime absolution. The first responders who were going in because he knew not everyone knew at the time, but he knew it was an act of war that had been perpetrated and there was throughout the entire day in the recovery process. There was this. Of course, the defining feature of it was that it was a religious War. It was a religious event. You see it in the first confirmed casualty being a priest, but of course, the motivations of the people who flew the planes into the towers. And you know, with so much death, how can you not contemplate mortality, ultimate things. So. So then what? What happened afterward? You know there was a war on terror. We were fighting radical Islam Islamism. But what Now that we look at the 20 years later, we're pulling out of Afghanistan. What is it? What are what are we standing for? What happened to the moral clarity? Maybe that we had in the days after 9 11. I, You know the mystery to me, Michael. I don't I don't know. Um, I don't know if this is being done by design or or is it just Coincidence, but we we've forgotten. Um you know, I remember seeing signs and we had shirts made up. Never forget. But I mean, I think a lot of people out there feel that we've forgotten. You know, One of my friends is a veteran, was horribly wounded in Afghanistan. And he's just crushed with betrayal right now, Um, I just don't know and and and strange enough is we're not even teaching that day in schools. You know, beautiful thing about my new hometown of Columbia, Tennessee. Is they literally call it Patriots Day? 9 11 is a holiday in that town. They have. They closed the town down, and they have Festival of music and Love and Patriotism, so they haven't forgotten put on a national scale. I It's a mystery to me, and I think what it's coming down to is These warring factions of politicians and and community organizers that just you can't have a say if you disagree with them. You are shut down, They will cut your legs off. We used to be able to have a dialogue in the country where you and I are sitting now having a conversation, a mature conversation. And, you know, folks might not agree upon everything. But in the past, you would at least accept their thought. Process it and give your thought back Now everything's a confrontation. Everything is interpreted as an insult. You know, I think people are just looking for ways to be offended and insulted. What's wrong with showing pictures of those poor people jumping out of the upper floors of the trade center, and they're desperate. They just were so desperate for life that some of them can look out with. Garbage bags and umbrellas thinking that maybe it could slow them down before they landed. But now we're not even allowed to show those images because they're considered offensive. But that's American history. We can't Can we not show the bombing of Pearl Harbor anymore? Because that's offensive. I mean, have we gone that far off the rails? And I I just don't know. I mean, I'm trying to deliver this straight down the middle, because I just want to get a message of kindness and love and goodness out there. But I think there's just people that want to keep this turmoil going. I think there's a lot of people in this country that are benefiting from the anger and the turmoil and the destruction. It has to stop. I mean, if we can't unify, we cannot go on. As a country..

"If we go the way that conservatism is going at the moment we are human beings with souls. Our purpose is not politics. Our purpose is not conservatism. I've had people. I remember meeting them. Over the last few years when i was engaged in all these political events and the one thing driving them was the cause whether it be or conservatism. And i'm like that is all wrong. I've got it backwards. I am a mother. i. I am a christian. I i am a part of my community first and then i'm only a conservative. Because i care about these things and i think it will make these things better in my life and i love these things irrationally. I love my child irrationally. i don't care. If the odds of saving my son's life were million to one and i would maybe die if i did something i would take those odds every time even though the facts that tell me that we are motivated by feelings. We are motivated by beauty in life and morality in these deeper non-tangible themes that you were just talking about and we really do need to tap back into that as conservatives. We need to tap into our artistic side. the side that communicates the soul. Because there's that great quote. I think it was actually from a billboard advertisement that said people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care and we show. Yeah we have to show people why they need care about this data. It's it's all what yet it's by the way. It's it's not just a subjective. Feeling your your calculation million to one odds to save your son but it might. You might have to have encouraged impersonal risk that. That's not just a subjective feeling preference or passion. It is a a moral fact that you're that you're talking about i mean these that when you say we're real human beings were were about more than just consuming random cheap goods made in china and we're about more than than just you know taking up. Gdp for a little bit. That is that is not merely a passion of yours and a preference in a feeling that is a fact and just think we are understanding as a culture of what is real. What is a fact. What is scientific has become so shallow and atrophied and it's not just the left that that has done this. The right is given into this as well and i just think we need a much really kind of Politics more authentic politics were stuck between these these false dichotomies of big government or the individual or something or or free speech and censorship. And i just think real life is about more than that. It's about standards. it's about purpose. It's about what we're here for. All the cheap chinese goods in the world all the things we could consume. The world don't mean anything unless we know what they are four and ultimately we need to know what we are four as well right absolutely and i think that also comes down to a problem with modern conservative pursue of hyper individualism. We are just the individual it is just about how much you can achieve and how much money you can earn and pull yourself up by your bootstraps. No actually we. We have a duty to our community. You are born helpless and we di- helpless. And i do not want to live in a community where a ninety year old grandma with no unto helper just dies because she wasn't strong enough to pull herself up by your bootstraps. I believe in a duty to each other. I believe in. And maybe maybe that makes me a communist the socialist. I don't think it does make sure dichotomy. I think that's a false dichotomy. You're talking about where it's not just individualists versus communists. There's complexity living in this tension of facts and feelings living in this tension of duty to each other but also personal responsibility but that's a hard conversation because it's not simple. It's not just a tweet. It's not just a slogan. It's an and it's not clear you know my friend. Father george butler has this observation. When people say i want clear ideology. I want clear. Religion says shallows are clear. Shallow thinking is clear deep. things are profound. They're a little murky. You've got to kind of work with them. And and i see in this full sti- kadhamy between individualist and the collectivist. I think they're two sides of the same coin. The way that the collectivists collectivise is by breaking down society into a bunch of individuals that they can more easily. Bundle up together and really. The opposite of collectivism is not individualism. It's the family it's community it's society even the way that we talk about our political order. Everyone's just talking about rights. You're you hear the left talking about the positive rights or the human rights to health care or whatever and you hear the right talking about the negative rights or or the natural rights. Which is i think. A more serious conversation. What about that word that you just used lauren. What about duty. What about the fact. That i'm not just born into this world entitled to a bunch of rights but i'm also born with duty duty to my family duty to my community duty to my god and i'm not. I'm not free in this radical self ownership to just do whatever i want. That's not even what our founding fathers thought. Liberty was thought liberty was the right to do what you ought to do. Not just the freedom to indulge in any sorts of appetites and abuses that you want. Yep i think that's really the core of what we're hitting on here is the both conservative movement and the progressive movement's are now based on human selfishness and we're never going to get anywhere on both sides just arguing over what what do i deserve. What do i deserve There's a complete and utter morals sickness at the core of both movements in my opinion and until we get back. And i know a lot of people won't like to hear this and it's not an easy thing to say because there are a lot of wonderful atheist conservatives out there but until we get back to a core of christianity that believes in the idea we are a broken world we are broken individuals. We are not uber. Match or perfectly feeling individuals and all. my feelings are valid. No no no. We are broken individuals that need redemption that need to work towards love that need to work to support each other and let go of selfishness until we do that. The only thing that is going to happen in politics left and right is going to be human sickness corrupting the money given to it corrupting the platforms. We have corrupting the fame. And ego and power. The how the power is used if it is entirely based round human desires and selfish desires and nothing higher. Because we don't believe in god anymore. We don't believe in anything higher any more than just capitalism or socialism it will all be corrupted and that's this downward dent downward spiral were in right now yes spiraling into oblivion with twitter arguments and i truly believe when i look at everyone walking around with masks and everyone just screaming at each other in twitter. I'm like did i die and go to hell story right now. I forget i forget if it was moliere. Or shaw i. I'm getting my quotes mixed up but who cares. It's some old guy who said that hell is the place where you have nothing to do but amuse yourself and it's kind of what you're describing and this. This cult of selfishness has has really taken hold. Not just on the left. I it was always there on the left. But it took hold on the right especially in the nineteen seventies and eighties coincidentally. I just managed finally to make it through possibly the worst book ever written though it gained a lot of currency on the right. Atlas shrugged by ayn random. It's unbearable it's funny that conservatives came to embrace it to some degree because when it first came out in national national review which which was the conservative publication at the time ran a scathing article bill buckley said he had to flog himself to read it. He called it. A thousand pages of ideological fabulous whittaker chambers the ex-communist one of the great writers of the twentieth century. He he wrote a really tough review but he made he made a. You didn't just knock the horrific pros and the stupid ideas. He he made the observation that has really weakened the right. I think because they've embraced ayn rand and and those sorts of set selfish ideas selfishness as virtue he said randy and man like mark z and man is the center of godless universe puts man at the center of where nothing means anything beyond our own pleasure and so to give rant credit. What she and the defenders of the virtuous selfishness on the right with they say as none of this won't descend into hedonism. This will be the sort of new chayon uber minch. We're going to just pursue our own excellence and what we want in this higher way. But as i look at reality. That doesn't seem to be what what has happened. We just seem to have descended into decadence. Not just on the left but on the right as well. So how lauren. In our remaining minute or two. How do we get out of it. I think that book was genius. We all We all love dine ran for a spell and thankfully we woke up. Yes i grew up. I i graduated. I swear by my life and my love of it. I will never live for another man nor lead. Another man lived for mine was the famous quote from that book..

"I know a lot of older conservatives and I speak to as you do a ton of younger conservatives. Younger conservatives are not waking up in a cold sweat thinking about marginal tax cuts and occupational licensing reform. They are waking up thinking about our culture, things that actually matter. What is human nature? What are we conserving? And I think any conservative movement that will be successful needs to speak to that. So since we only have a couple minutes remaining, I'll go over time, if you can, Michael, but you're very important. And you have a very important very, very big guy. Yes, is so And this is the biggest topic of all. Here's what Your whole book is really about. And here I'm telling you a book I haven't read. But I didn't view you. I mean, I I reviewed you not the book, so that's a very important thing. So Is is this your whole book is centered on? We must know the good. We must identify it, and we must preserve it. So, Michael, what is the good? Is it objective or subjective? How do people get to know that something is true or false? Or right or wrong? Those are your words. How does one discover those things and then properly govern themselves after that, Okay, I've got this is probably gonna be the most controversial statement that I'm going to make on the entire on the entire book tour because you've got you've got the radical squishes who are saying we can never know what's good or true or anything, and we just got to Trans the kids. Then you've got people who are quite in the opposite direction who are saying we need a basically a firm establishment of the church in this country, you know, with very specific ecclesial, ology and and the like. I am taking the I think the most radical approach of all The way that we can know. Some idea of the good and the true and the beautiful in politics is through prudence, freedoms. Italian word half it is and something that Edmund Burke talked at great length about. You're not allowed to talk about prudence these days because everybody has some kooky ideologue who wants to fit their entire political program on a five point plan on a napkin or something. But prudence is actually a really good thing. My argument here for recovering some semblance of the American free speech tradition is not that we need to spell it all out right now. And I need to give you my entire grand theory of everything. I'm not doing that I'm saying One place to begin. Is not in the abstract pie in the sky, but to look at the actual free speech tradition as it has really existed in America, and I know we're not allowed to do this either. Learn from the past and learn from our forebears who gave us this country and see where things may have gone a little wrong and try to fix them modestly but courageously and and confidently And with with a real purpose because you and I have a purpose. Our country has a purpose that there is a purpose to things because there was reason to the universe. We can know it, and I think in order to preserve our country we need to. We need to get our heads out of the clouds and really dig in to this real place because America is a real place with a real tradition. Not an abstraction. And it is not something in the clouds got to get into what we see empirically and govern ourselves appropriately prudence otherwise known as practical judgment. How we should govern ourselves. Russell Kirk wrote extensively about that. And the three tied, not we must preserve. Right, Michael, what came before us and what is here and what is yet to come? As Edinburgh famously wrote, the three tied knot is what is most important. This book is called Speechless. By Michael Knowles. It is terrific, and I suppose I have one more question as we just wrap this all up together. Are you optimistic or pessimistic that we can shut up the other side? You know, Charlie pessimism and optimism. As my friend, Father, George Butler points out. There are two sides of the same coin. The conservative pessimist says Things can't get any worse. The conservative optimist says, Oh, yes, they can. But I have real hope. Hope is a fact. It's a theological virtue. Obviously, this has a religious foundation. I have hoping that my Redeemer lives. I know the way the story ends, but I also have hope in the American people..

"In your eyes onto that as you're leaving a base of people that you're already been discovered right rate new. You could build a trailer there for you. That's a big big chains was was. It was something i wanted to do. You know since. I was about thirteen or fourteen. Because my teacher ellis marsalis had two sons that had moved to new york and become very successful. Wynton marsalis branford marsalis and there were like big brothers to me so i wanted to do what they were doing. I figured they can go to new york and make a career plan jazz music. That's what i wanted you to when i was fourteen. I wanna competition of the national association of jazz educators. Now it's the international association but there was a guy named george butler. Who's the anr guy for the jazz department at columbia records. Well i knew about him. Because he signed wouldn't in branford to their record deals. So when i was fourteen i met george and he says when you move to new york. Call me for years later. When i was eighteen. I call mccollum every day for about six months in hounded him. Because i wanted that record contract so bad in the finally got it i was you know. Eighteen nineteen years old in signed signed with columbia. So that's kinda why. I went score years due to prepare for that moment when he's finally going to pick up the phone and talk yet is practice practice practice like you hear gymnasts or athletes in the training. That they have to do. That's all i did. I mean twenty four hours a day. Because i knew that when i had the chance to perform i had i had to be ready in in. When you have guys like wynton marsalis branford marsalis. Talk you up. Oh my gosh. I mean they're the best in the world so you you have to be ready to play so great and a country like america has feeder system. That if you if you're passionate about something that you have an opportunity divan and be mentored discovered. I must be something that is incredibly important nearly stage in your career. Oh it was huge. It was it was all about a sense of ownership. Like the fact that i could actually do this. I never doubted that. Which is why it's so important. People like me wash like me. That i do everything i can to make sure that young people get opportunities like i have because it's all about. I never doubted that. This was what i was going to be doing. I mean never crossed my mind that there was a plan. B or what happens if this doesn't work out him and it was chosen little talent. This has to do with my belief that the opportunity was there. If i were taught enough in was in. That's the that's an incredible luxury to have. I'm well aware that later on. We're going to talk about you know this incredible album long buffet rediscovery who you are. But how important was at this point in your life. You're young you're going to new york. Got this blinding ambition. i fail. Was there a higher purpose league or was it. Just all you know the determination of a young man. It says. When i get that shot i'm most it was. It was probably mostly that. I mean my faith was was pretty strong then but i. I don't think i understood it. I know i didn't understand faith. The way i understand it or think understanding now but no it was a part of it. I mean i remember praying. I remember Counting on my faith to help get me through those times. That didn't look so good. I remember the first opportunity. I had to audition for columbia. Was by a another guy. I leave his name out of it. But with george butler wasn't returning my calls another person said i wanna come here you play and practice so weeks and i told him i was going to meet him at this place. I was gonna play for him in. I had musudan and i showed up at five pm. Ready at the piano in six pm rose by seven eight nine. The guy just never came and that was tough. Because i was so ready. Just give me a chance to play for you. Any just blew you off. How does somebody this spent so much train preparing that one moment you get there five o'clock it every minute. Minute must seem like an hour at six o'clock at seven o'clock. How do you go home and go. I'm gonna make the next day apple versus just going to dark all despair. A lot of people would fall back in their backseat there. But you kept march. I think it must be a personality thing. Maybe it's a genetic thing. I just can't quit. I don't understand the meaning of of quit. And i don't understand no like i'll find another way. It's says it's kind of it's animosity that a developable skill a maybe it's an ego thing. I don't know arrogance at that time. I just maybe we'll today. I don't think it's arrogance. I think it's it's a belief in the idea of manifestation. How can you not make this app. You know just talk to you later. Like you are such extrordinary. Things really focused on this desired outcome. They might not always get they. My name really high comeback. Step if they go so much further than most because they just really lead posssibility. So i mean maybe it is. I'd love to know if the bottle monday. Because i think especially now. Our country needs an absolute dose of this sort of positive energy. And we're gonna get through this. But i wanna you're in new york you've got your album deal. Rob reiner discovers you. Tell me how that came in. Because he's producing this movie which we had no idea is going to be as big as it is. I remain silent. He gives you the game ball. Says i want you to do the soundtrack. That was wild. So i remember. I didn't know this man at the time of this guiding bobby columbia and. He used to be the drummer for blood sweat and tears. Whatever the reason. Bobby columbia's radar was on me. Rob reiner had just on the film and was looking for somebody to play kind of background music through some of the scenes. So bobby said i know the guy. He's kid he's twenty years old ilise from new orleans. Get him to doing. Rob reiner comment my house. I was at my dad's house in new orleans.

Li songs went on these particular artist's representations didn't want them to be on it for whatever reason maybe money was right. I'm not sure. So when frank sinatra's camp backed out. I got his song. When ella fitzgerald camp backed out. I got her songs before you knew. I had literally the whole album. So i sang their songs in my way and i had the whole album and that album came out and i went from selling ten or twenty thousand albums millions of albums just a matter of months i mean it completely turned my life upside down if they asked me And when that came out what was happening music that time because you were unique can answer two words.

"All the frontline workers in the ordinary Americans. Those are near Americans were outside because Washington D. C. Looked like Baghdad because there were giant fences and walls everywhere and the people. Were replaced with a little miniature flags all over them all. So much for democracy. I'm Michael knows Is the Michael no show. Welcome back to the show My favorite comment yesterday. Was from inspecting gadgets who was reflecting on the new curricula in schools, he says. It's reading, writing and racism in public schools. Now that's true. We're gonna get a whole lot more of that. If the Biden Education Department picks go is they are planned. If the whole the whole administration goes as it currently looks like it will go. Now, more than ever time to protect yourself against people who don't like you and want to take your information and that want to use it against you. That's why I love Express VPN and I recommend that you get expressed V P. M as well. Democracy triumph yesterday at an event that the people were prohibited from attending Amy Klobuchar Open this up, and she was the emcee for the day. She did basically as good a job as you could do as the emcee. But if you were paying close attention, and you'll notice that the cameras on the inauguration, they rarely showed that there weren't any people there right is mostly just on the sort of podium. Mostly with the people around Joe Biden, but mostly even on those first few rows, where there were some scattered people in the audience, But It was unlike any inauguration we've ever seen because there were just a handful of people for the cameras. Everything else was empty, and people had been replaced with flags. And it wasn't just a choice of Amy Klobuchar to focus on this. Joe Biden himself. Made sure to talk about the importance of democracy. And it was such a bizarre juxtaposition of this word democracy without any people. They're not even Joe, who's a slick A politician is they've ever come? Not even he was able to sell it. This is America's day. This is Democracy's day, a day of history and hope. Every new and resolved for a crucible for the ages. America's been tested a new America has risen to the challenge. Today we celebrate the triumph not of a candidate, but because the cause of democracy People. The will of the people has been heard and the world of people has been heated. We've learned again that democracy is precious democracy is fragile. At this hour. My friends, democracy has prevailed. Democracy is prevailing. Yeah, I don't think he could use the word democracy any more times while still reading grammatical sentences, right is packed inasmuch as possible. Makes me think the lady doth protest too much. All these Democrats going on about democracy? Does that look like democracy? Do you let me just ask you compared to the Trump inauguration in 2016? Lots and lots of people. I know there was some controversy over the crowd sizes, but I think we can all agree lots and lots of people there versus this inauguration without any people, which one looks like democracy prevailed. If you really believe in the cause of democracy. Why would you be so afraid of your own people that you would lock them out that you would erect giant fences with barbed wire? All around Washington, D C. It just doesn't ring true. You'll notice that the end there, Biden says. Democracy prevailed, and some people think this is just a typical platitudes and empty Biden slogan. It actually gets to the left view of democracy. You'll hear them talk about democracy a lot Well, they didn't seem to like democracy very much in 2016 when President Trump won And then they changed a lot of the election integrity systems in 2020. We'll just leave it right there. Democracy prevails, according to the left when they win. And democracy fails, according to the left when they lose. It's it's on Lee ever democracy when they win. When it's not, they would say no, it's suppression. It's voter intimidation. It's something went horribly, horribly wrong. And There's actually something to what they're saying, You know, I think that it's important to recognize that's the review of democracy. So if they lose that, you know, Al Gore loses well, then that wasn't democracy or Hillary Clinton loses. Well, that wasn't democracy. You know, it's only only when they win is a democracy. But Prevails, you know is a complex word. Is it saying democracy did with democracy is do you know it acted like a democracy or are they saying democracies gave us a good government democracy? Showed how great democracy is, and it's a sort of subtle distinction. But we all actually look a democracy in the latter sense of that word right there. First of all, we're not a pure democracy in this country. We're not a direct democracy where Republican government which is also called a democracy, but we we have all of these different systems in place. Give us our government. The electoral College is a great example of this. You can win the majority of voters nationwide and still lose the presidency because we have this kind of intricate system of government. There's nothing wonderful about democracy in and of itself. If you've got a vicious people who have absolutely no virtue who elect horrible, terrible leaders who trample on everyone's rights. Well, that's not a win for democracy. Democracy is acting as it should. As we would expect it to, But it's still giving us bad governments. There's nothing great in and of itself. And so when Biden saying democracy prevails, I think what he's also saying is this is how democracy is supposed to work. And in all fairness, I feel the same way. When when these awful leftists win, I think, gosh, our democracy is not functioning as it should. If we still had a virtuous people, you know if we still and I know there's all this lamentation all the time about it used to be better in the good old days. A lot of that is just nostalgia, which is history after a few drinks is my friend, father, George Butler says, But there actually is something to it. People used to know more about our country. People used to know more about our politics about our history. They used to have a clear review. They used to be better educated than they are today. They used to be more capable of liberty than they are today. You can just look at any sort of civic surveys that are given out there was a famous one from my aside but a dozen years ago which showed that graduates of very prestigious universities The graduating seniors knew less about civics than the incoming freshmen. They actually got more ignorant over their time in that in that educational environment, so that it really does happen, and I feel the same way when we're electing these awful people who want to trample on our national traditions and who want to upend our system of government. I think that's bad. I think that's a failure of democracy. You've got to get to the people to have that prevail. But it was so ironic. I mean, I don't think I could ever have the goal to talk about the failures and triumphs of democracy to a Crowd of nobody where the people were not permitted. It was it was a force of an inauguration it right down to even the swearing in. So Kamila Harris comes up and she does her swearing in. And Sonia Sotomayor is the justice who's going to administer the oath, and they make a big point, as they always do when they introduced Sotomayor of talking about her racial identity and how she's a woman. This is how she herself sold her nomination. Remember Sonia Sotomayor when they said Why? How are you qualified to be on the court? You know, a resume was a little thinner than some of the other judges on the court, And she said, Well, I'm a wise Latina woman. I don't I don't see that as a particularly compelling of qualification where I want to hear about your experience as a judge, I want to hear about your loss. School education, You know, talk about that. Just don't don't talk about this identity politics, So she gets up there She does the oath. On. So you sort of my or mispronounces Kamila Harris his name. Please raise your right hand and repeat after me..

"I've been making a list like this of my favorite You know first time. Watches from other years since i think two thousand eight maybe as a post on my on my website and In various times in the past. I've had certain goals about watching Try to watch a movie. That was made before i was born like once once a week which i there have been years when i've been able to do that this year. I didn't necessarily mean. I watched a lot of movies but i watched a lot more new movies even this year than i ever have before just because i was writing about them in so many different configuration right. I'm always eager to watch as many older movies as i can for sure for sure. Well before we get into our lists. I will also mention that you know again with awesome movie year. I've been trying to step it up a little bit and actually watch all the movies you guys cover over there and so that definitely factors into my list here. I'm sure there'll be some awesome movie or movies on your list. So everyone listening. Make sure to listen. Awesome movie here. But i think one of the great things for me about doing awesome movie year is the chance to see older movies that i wouldn't necessarily have seen or didn't know about or ever and that especially this year when we've done seasons that look back further. We had a season on nine hundred. Seventy seven and a season that we're doing right now in nineteen eighty-four and there was a larger proportion of movies in those seasons that i haven't seen as opposed to when we talk about more recent years and i've usually seen more movies. So yeah get a chance to see more older movie absolutely. Yeah yeah definitely a lot of stuff. That i maybe wouldn't have gotten a chance to watch. So that's that's that makes it awesome. So let's start these lists. What do you got number ten number ten. Speaking of is a movie that we covered an awesome movie air and is a movie that i didn't necessarily expect much out of it was our documentary. Pick in our season on. Nineteen seventy seven pumping iron from directors. George butler and robert fewer eight. And i mean. I was familiar with this movie. Because it's one of the earliest movies. That brought arnold schwarzenegger to kind of public attention. It's a documentary about the bodybuilding scene in the late seventies. And it focuses a lot on schwarzenegger who was a huge champion at the time as well as blue frig know who was kind of a big challenger to schwarzenegger at the time and of course also went on to become an actor and a major pop culture figure. So it's this look at these two major pop culture figures kind of before they were famous. And it's cool as that. But it's just so entertaining. I mean this is a movie. That's really well constructed as like fun crowd-pleasing entertainment and i mean documentary. There's bits of it that are clearly manipulated in certain ways. In order to make it more entertaining. But it all works really well. And i think because these guys are in a way performers even just as bodybuilders bodybuilding about getting on stage and posing and getting the audience to be into you so they're already performers and they're clearly playing it up for the camera. Schwarzenegger is so fun to watch in this..

In their first five years of marriage the couple had four children in eighteen sixty, three Josephine's only daughter and youngest child Eva fell to her death. To cope with the overwhelming grief, Josephine turned to charity work. Josephine. started by finding shelter for the city's homeless women often taking them into her own home. Many of these women were prostitutes suffering the terminal stages, venereal diseases. Josephine also worked with Aunt Jemima. Cloth a prominent suffragette. To establish academic courses for advanced study for women. In eighteen sixty seven. Appointed president of the north of England Council for Higher Education of women. She campaigned for Cambridge. University, to expand opportunities available to women, students, and her efforts resulted in one of Cambridge's all women, colleges, Newnham College.

Straight from the idea that women should be viewed in the same terms as men instead she argued that women deserve the vote because they were different than men and had a separate responsibility within society to protect and care for the week. To Josephine ensuring a woman's right to vote was away to strengthen the morality of the nation. In eighteen sixty nine Josephine began publicly campaigning against the contagious diseases acts of eighteen, sixty, six, eighteen, sixty, nine.

Under, these acts police were given the authority to arrest suspected prostitutes living in seaports and military towns and subject them to forced medical examinations. Have worked with sex workers at the start of her career. Josephine felt sympathy for these woman. She believed they were forced into this work through low wages and minimal opportunity for Josephine these acts represented troubling double standard. Sex workers were punished, but the men who sought out there surfaces were not. Josephine was a powerful orator who drew large crowds as she traveled the country gaining support for the Act's repeal. George now, a prominent figure in academia was criticized for letting his wife discuss sex in public. Despite threats to his career George, continue to support Josephine's advocacy. And Josephine charged on. She teamed up with other prominent social workers to expose the insidious world of human trafficking and child prostitution in London. Her hard work paid off. In eighteen eighty, five parliament passed the Criminal Law Amendment Act which raised the age of consent from thirteen to sixteen. And the following year eighteen, eighty, six parliament formally repealed the contagious diseases act. In her final years Josephine supported the suffrage movement and published her most famous work personal reminiscences of a great crusade. It promoted social reform women's education and equality.

"Movie podcast. You can find the leak to that at that website clip. Stir Dot net today. I'm going to be getting into the first of a three part series looking at films of the nineteen eighties that are based on characters created by Robert e Howard a writer from the nineteen thirties. Who is well known for the main character in the film that I'm going to be reviewing today? It's nineteen eighty. Two's Conan the barbarian CONAN. The Barbarian is already film but does have strong violence. Sex Nudity and Gore. The run time is two hours. And nine minutes Arnold Schwarzenegger he would become a star by making this film James Earl Jones Sandal Bergman Gerry Lopez Ben Davidson Mako and Max. Von Sydow are also in the film director is John Milius who also writes the screenplay although the screenplays also credited to none other than Oliver Stone Now CONAN is Robert e Howard's literary creation. The character originally appeared in a pulp magazine called. Weird Tales published in the nineteen thirties. And he really does come to live here in this one thousand nine hundred eighty two film. It did come out right at the right time to ride. Kind of a sword and sorcery wave. There was a wildly popular role playing game that was sweeping the teenage nation at the time called Dungeons and dragons and it really was a timely heroic fantasy release the setting for Conan. The barbarian is the Hibernian Age. It's a fictional period that was created by Robert Howard. It's kind of around ten thousand B C a time of magic and madman and mercenaries and Barbara who have to kill before the end up getting killed and the film here starting off with Conan as a young boy in Samaria. He's orphaned at the hands of this evil snake cult leader and this black magic source were named also dum play by James Earl Jones Conan ends up getting taken into slavery where he's worked very hard but he builds a lot of big muscles as he grows up into a man he ends up fighting in the arena for sport. He's a gladiator and he becomes very good at what he does and soon he ends up escaping and he uses his newfound freedom to seek revenge on this man responsible for the murder of his parents with some help from new friends that he ends up meeting along the way lot more to the story than that but it is a very simple premise nonetheless. The origin of Conan the barbarian as a film started back in nineteen seventy five. And that's where we find a director and producer named George Butler who was screening footage to some of his friends of this bodybuilding documentary. He was making called pumping iron. One of the people in attendance was a toy company. Air turned film. Producer named Edward R PRESSMAN. And he was there with his friend. A comic store owner in New York City called Ed. Summer pressman grew very enamored as he was watching this footage of this highly intelligent very charismatic bodybuilder. Champion named Arnold Schwarzenegger this guy had star potential. If he could find the right vehicle for him and as they were discussing this ED summer suggested Conan. Any brought pressman to his comic bookstore to show him issues of the Marvel Comics Conan the barbarian series as well. As some of frank presenters stunning artwork. For the covers of Howard's book reprints from the nineteen sixties. Pressman was really taken by the Zada work in. He felt that these paintings evoked action and excitement and cinematic appeal. They were like movies. Captured in single images. So pressman said about trying to acquire the CONAN property and that proved to be challenging because the rights holders were fragmented among multiple parties over many decades and in the meantime pressman called in at summer to write a script for him. He wanted to make a low budget version CONAN for about two point five million dollars at that time which is what he could afford. Summer wrote his first story treatment with the writer for Marvel Comics Conan the barbarian Roy Thomas. Who's pretty much as big expert as there was at the time but they couldn't quite legally adapt Robert e Howard stories into their film because they didn't have the rights yet. It took two years of legal hurdles. Pressman finally sorted those legal rights out and the rights to Howard's works all of them. Were only seventy five hundred dollars. But it did cost him over one hundred thousand dollars in legal fees over the years as well now. According to Arnold Schwarzenegger he was approached to play Conan by pressman while he was dining at a restaurant on sunset. Boulevard Schwarzenegger received offers regularly from a lot of fast talking Hollywood tights. They wanted him to be there next. Kirke lease or appear in some schlocky movie as some sort of he-man so Schwarzenegger didn't have a lot of time for that. In fact he had never even heard of Conan or even pressman for that matter but he was struck by the producers demeanor. He seemed very low key and very nervous in his pitch and he had a great thoughtfulness to him. That Schwarzenegger took his intent as being earnest. So after listening to him he ended up thinking about it and then signed a contract for a two hundred fifty thousand dollars retainer toward a three point five million dollar five picture deal on condition that he would not star in any other fantasy genre films during that run. Now Schwarzenegger started training for this role. He thought this actually could make him a star and he worked on reducing his thick Austrian accent. He started taking speech lessons and he took training courses on what he might do. In this film Horseback Riding Rope Climbing Sword fighting he ended up also trimming down his physique because he thought his body should be more athletic as well as strong but his muscles were a natural looking because he had been pumping iron all day to compete in bodybuilding competitions so with Conan now cast and with. The story writes in hand. Edward Pressman was told by paramount that they would fund his film if he could find a writer with a little bit more clout than at summer. The Comic Book store owner so pressman met with Oliver Stone. Through his agent Oliver Stone was getting some acclaim for his screenplay to Midnight Express and pressman end up reading his latest script by Oliver Stone. It was called the platoon which later became of course platoon he was very impressed with screenplay even though it was still kind of a raw form pressman hired stone to rider graft for Conan and to see what he could come up with. The Sky was the limit he told him. Stone ended up gravitating toward two of Robert. E Howard Stories one called a witch shall be borne which inspired the famous scene in Conan the barbarian of CONAN's crucifixion in this battle with a folder and the scarlet citadel which contained a giant snake famously the secondary characters were mainly in amalgamation of these names and traits. That were found in characters in Howard's not only Conan series but also king call and the Bran Mak Morn series pressman had acquired the rights to all of Robert Howard's characters in his deal now stone scope was massive and it featured elaborate battles and had mechanized chariots fighting against hordes of mutiny enemies and all kinds of crazy things and don't even did something kind of weird. He placed the setting not in the past. But as a post apocalyptic future kind of beyond mad. Max just a crazy time and he envisioned this to be a big series full of a lot of sequels like James Bond. They would come back every couple of years with the new cinematic adventure for Conan. Now pressman loved the script but the EXA- paramount after reading it. This really was not the right fit for them so they ended up pulling out of the deal. So after shopping it to various other studios none of them seemed willing to put up the money especially with this untested screenwriter. Oliver Stone suggested as HE CO-DIRECTOR JAWS. Two's second unit director. Joe Alves was put in. The deal is part of a package to try to get the studios to sign on board. Now the bean counters of the studios estimated that the cost of production to produce a big screen version of stone script as it was it was going to run over four hours long and the budget would exceed forty million dollars which was way too much money for a character that didn't have big screen cloud yet made by people who also didn't have much big-screen cloud so precedent ended up seeking out directors. He could attach to this project that had more of a name he started out with John. Milius Alan Parker was also considered Parker had directed stones midnight express famously. Ridley Scott and Ralph Dachsie were also considerations. Now John Milius. He was the first choice but he was busy shooting big Wednesday at the time so he they would have to wait for him to be finished with that. He wanted to give it a look. Really Scout. Read it but.

The Crown And An HBO Cartoon About The Royals

"Robbie had this in his intercooler earlier about the animated show that HBO has ordered about the Royals hi I think I can interested in this really cute it's called the prince and it's based on on Gary genet he's Instagram account which I thought to rises six year old Prince George all you're kidding the son of prince William and princess Kate he right right for family guide I mean just the picture if you if you look up animated royal you know show up you'll see all the characters animated and prince Phillip his look in print see old really Hey it looks great that great high cheek bones I don't know why I act as a key holder like I didn't know that he was ninety believe that they're still alive no I think it's incredible because they're like she's a lady of the lake leisure I mean should what they're both in their nineties and she looks great yes love her and she always has like on a very colorful outfit you know like in a bright color I think the show will be kind of funny I can I'm I'm looking for dissing this animation the Royals just interest me I'm fine this guy now on Instagram I think it's because of the crown but you know I don't know I think with the death of princess Diana and and there's just you know with with watching her boys grow up on television yeah and yeah I just I'm so interested in just that life I am too it's just fascinating that it is real life yeah I know it's like they're living a fairy tale right well some of the some of them into a minute the situation but the cast is Orlando bloom as prince Harry Tom Hollander as both prince Philip and prince Charles and Alan **** as George's Butler when if and this is coming on the heels of Netflix saying that they're interested in working with Harry and Meghan on on the on the crown wait wait you know that's not gonna happen right well we can we afford to what I want to say about that yeah okay so as we if you if you're watching the crown you've seen are you watching the crown absolutely if you're watching the crown for those if you're listening you know that it's now we're kind of we're in a season hopefully I'm not spoiling this but we're going to see as the years go by so now we're seeing kind of how prince Charles evolved into who he was how he met Camilla which I'm like this is really all I can like I feel like I should know all these things see and I feel like I do it's so so I'm wondering I'm watching more to see how they present the story that I already now okay just from growing up in sure my mom was huge into the Royals and okay so you're waiting for what's happening next who's gonna play this we know yeah I've already cast princess Diana I think for the next season do we know who it is I've seen a picture of her and she looks very similar to princess Diana let you look that bad so you're thinking okay as the seasons progress we're gonna start seeing more of prince Harry prince William well not so fast prince Harry has no interest in having his life with Meghan Markle play out for all to see on the crown and he's a trip he there thinking he probably would attempt to have their narrative written out of the script so a biographer her name is Angela Levin she wrote a biography about prince Harry and she spoke to him and he said I'm going to stop any production if Netflix tries to center a season about me and Meghan see now this story I'm seeing Kelly is live in that it was revealed that Harry once joked to his biographer or that he was gonna make sure he stopped it before they got to him he he he was joking anything he actually like is the do you think that he would be okay with him and Meghan being portrayed on the crown I don't think he has a say I don't think he has any say like you somebody could put a show on about our crew would that be entertaining and they've already done a movie about Megan and hairy I feel like once it gets to that point I think people will be tired of the crown I think what's interesting about the crown right now it's it it's not happening right now it's not all in our face it's what happened before really anything was that accessible back then to Americans the you know the crown the Royals weren't that accessible right they are now right so it's very interesting to see well that's how they lived because now we kind of know how they live they live real fancy now they live in little cottages are more like palaces but I don't know I am I wonder still get to maybe I have the wrong do you remember princess Stephanie I'm rob do you remember princess Stephanie she was kind of a trouble maker she dated rob Lowe does that ring a bell to you nothing's ringing on her really yes he may have been Monaco on come on if we did it was kid wishy no they got to get to forgive me they've got to get to Andrew see that to me is what's really exciting yeah she was Stephanie of Monaco so I don't know how it works with she was the the prince Rainier the third sign on and the daughter of Grace Kelly she's beautify now you know I'm looking at a bizarre Harper's bazaar has an article about actress Emma Corran C. O. R. R. I. and she's going to portray princess Diana she looks quite like her you think so yeah I mean she's got the hair I can see it I mean she's blind but the email do you like how the season is changed where the actors are different now I don't mind it it's growing on me yeah I don't mind I think a livia Coleman is amazing I I was talking with some girlfriends this weekend about it and they they hadn't started watching it but they had heard they were new new characters new actresses and actors right and they were hesitant to watch it because of that I said you're going to forget about it you're going to forget that they are not the same not this not clear voice I mean right it's different but it's it grows on you well what I like about it too is that it gives you know instead of making clear for a look older boy I think that's okay okay on instead of making her look older they're giving an older actress the gig but it's older isn't she supposed to be in her thirties and this season is that right clear forty is that age I feel like no think about it says it's a baby in her forties maybe in her forties because prince Charles in this this season is like eighteen nineteen yeah so I mean is he that young I think he's a he's a college so maybe he's sick twenty I don't know anyway I do I do it makes me like the queen even more see you see all the stuff you have to deal with you know and but you get a look at her behind the scenes that even though you know we're not watching a documentary he'll actually I get the Google machine out the entire time I'm watching it and like that this really happened to this really happened I mean it's very interesting how they take things the events that happened and put it in the show and make it so very realistic but it also makes he understand my Meghan Markle's like peace I'm out I'm not totally it by the way speaking of so they're in Canada now print tarian Meghan Markle are in Canada but they're still battling with the British paparazzi so a day after Harry lands on Vancouver Island his lawyers sent a cease and desist letter to on a bunch of news outlets in the U. K. and threat and that action will be taken if they publisher by photographs taken of Meghan and her son Archie or their son I should say taking a walk on the sun newspaper published the photos and NBC's today show aired them there are all over the internet right now but there are serious safety concerns according to this letter about how the paparazzi are driving in the risk to life that they are posing now I've got to imagine that Harry's got some you know does a trauma related to the way he lost his mother in a car crash while trying to escape the paparazzi back in ninety seven but according to the letter photographers have permanently camped outside the couple's home and they're using long range lenses to take pictures so even though they're not in England they're still going to get this they offer other mereka I mean that's just how it's going to be that sadly she does look real happy in this photo of her walking with a rich she and her two dogs and also the to what looked like security behind her yeah that's what I can get yeah well what's interesting about this picture that's everywhere of her with Archie like kind of strapped to her yeah do you see how she's holding it he looks a little I think she's got him he looks real happy and she looks like a normal person and leggings and boots and she got a hat on yeah great she looks adorable for her by the way season three and it looks like Queen Elizabeth is between thirty eight and fifty one I'm supposed to be in okay it's amazing how just their facial expressions can make them look like the queen yeah I'm sure they study they've studied her for a very long time an mazing if you're not watching the crown we highly recommend it

"It's about other things that come with the market, and I think if you're going to come to New York in a vacuum, you go to a team that has a blank canvas. The Knicks basically have a blank canvas that can continue to build around him. And they have the network to Bobby, there's a lot of cap space notes that I know you were talking about last night of the Knicks part of that the nets part of that the Celtics are part of that. Well, we saw the Celtics now become, you know, jump to the party here. Right. They were team that we thought would be in a luxury tax kyri Al Horford return. Now, their position to have twenty six dollars room. They moved at our and beans contract last night, they can still bring Terry Rozier back. And now that's the team that joins not as much as Brooklyn with seven sixty nine in New York with seventy but thirteen that still has Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum, Marcus smart that can add maybe one or two pieces around those. What are they looking at what did the Celtics want to add? Well, they need a point guard because kyri looks like he's walking, and Terry Rozier, even though he's restricted made it clear from the mountaintops, he doesn't wanna come back. So I don't think being having free agent money in this class is the greatest idea, especially in Boston, which is not historically been able to draw reagents, there's a whole bunch of competition for those guys. I just can't believe this really thought they were gonna lose out Horford. I think their strategy was around. Okay. We're going resign, Allah, maybe add another piece now they got to replace out Horford, which is incredibly different and replace career. It's not gonna happen. We were talking about this before you brought up a great point about at Tyler's because I was saying it seems like the narrative is almost flipped a little bit for two Celtics very quickly from them being, like, hey, this is the team that's going to win Eastern Conference. Lookout Dany ages. So great to way to handle. The is at Thomas situation. You know, you talked about the fact before during our conversation about missing out a quieter missing out on Paul George. You know, hearing Terry Rozier, literally come on this show and go on I take and talk about I wanna be I wanna Bill pre sheet, it, the kyri Irving situation, it talks about maybe how that franchise handles that climate and also missing out on Anthony Davis, when everybody understands that you have the SS to get it done missing out on a wild litter. They had opportunities wire hill and George Butler, we can go on and on. So how did the Celtics go for being? The team without ever having present. Greeny. And it's amazing that the one rule that probably might collapse this organization was that was that designated rookie extension if then rule wasn't in place. There might have been an Anthony February the narrative of everything would have would have certainly changed in, in Kyrie Irving could be back in Boston. And then you have Anthony Davis the build around. But now you don't have you're likely not going to have kyri and your life. You're not gonna have Al Horford, you basically get punished if you're Danny as it would be a really good at your job. And again, I think I speak for America. When I say, not everyone knows what that exception is. But it was the reason they couldn't get couldn't get Anthony Davis because they had just gotten out two players you acquired in a trade that signed this rookie extend retrospect, just treated carrier Ving at midseason and then traded that a lot of rules today and going to me at all goes back to the hats. I really. All right. We'll take a short break coming up another hour of get up on the way you know, head on that here. Are you kidding about three transcendent talents at the top pick the answer next?.

"Rat. And died of the plague that's an old time. You death, right? Boy, got a Fred at a renaissance fair got a Frenchman who floated across the Atlantic and a giant barrel for some reason. Congratulations to him. Among other mansion only. Yes. Among other major stories we'll be covering. Let's get the news now, Marcia Villela shooting at a charter school in Colorado left. One student dead seven other students injured authorities say two suspects are in custody both benefit as students one male one female, Colorado DA, George Butler, urging everyone not to glorify the shooter's and instead adopted not- notoriety approach, let us move past focusing on the identity of the suspects and their images and focus instead on the innocent victims and on this crime and the investigation itself. Douglas county sheriff saying there was a struggle taken the suspects into custody. Apparently, that's when one student was fatally shot, and according to NBC news. The young man killed was Kendrick Custodio reports say that Steve died a hero in engaging the shooters, and he wasn't alone. Others also stood up to the shooter's at least one of their aerobic student. Brenda vilely is credited with tackling one of the two gunmen. That's not clear, which one is father telling reporters state, basically the three that soons over involved with to the gut shot at him. They saw the shooter's candidate both got up and went after him on his way, he described it to me, that's fabulous. Kendrick Custodio is the year old's name, and those are the two things that I think maybe as might turn the tide in this whole school shooting epidemic one everybody's catching up to what we have been saying. It's obvious. It's not like we're geniuses coming up with us. Stop talking about the shooter like they're freaking God of some sort their names, and their pictures and their manifesto there. List of complaints that that to me is the big issue here you make him an anti hero. You make them famous. And then you let make sure everybody here's what they want. Everybody to hear you serve as they're paid mouthpiece. And you're paid in blood. It's disgusting. So now we've had a couple of shootings in a row where least the publications I read and watch I didn't see the shooter's picture or hear their name. I don't even know anything about him, which is fine. And this idea that somebody's going to receive their lives in run at the gunman and people are going to die doing that. It happened. The other day North Carolina just happened with this eighteen year old here, again his name is Kendrick Custodio who died, but if if loser shooters realize one I'm going to get no attention for this and to I'm not going to kill twenty people. Somebody's going to run at me. Right and hell beat out of me. And then everybody's just going to agree on a stupid angry coward. We could all come together on that notion. This craze would end or at least end substantially it might it might actually start receiving. I'll tell you one thing just brace yourself because it's common there's going to be a discussion of gender or or trends, what do you call it? Whatever that sort of thing one of the shooters. They thought was a dude.

"A development today with the. European council. President Donald tusk. Lashing out at British politicians. Listening to NewsHour from the BBC, I'm Russ to Yemen now and in recent weeks and months our coverage has focused on fighting famine and efforts at peace, which would make those things disappear and the emphasis has been on the port city of her data or the capital sonner today. I've been speaking to a young artists to travel to the eastern province of our Mara thousand kilometers from data George Butler, encountered, a different picture of Yemen. I went to province in eastern Yemen, code Mara. I mean, the whole of Yemen is is difficult at the moment. But it's a different story from the one that we hear a lot in the news on the one that you're talking about later. It's not about war and famine it's a bite. Occupation. And sovereignty. Talking about a province that is a thousand kilometers east of data, which is what we've been hearing about in the news a lot, but on the border with Oman and Saudi Arabia. What did you find? This is a province that since the beginning of the IRA. Precaution has been occupied really by the Saudi and. You a coalition, and I think it is fair to describe it as as an occupation. There is a militarization of the Al guide airport Saudi army basis across the province, and that's very difficult deciding intentions there, I'm not clear, and the people who very much tribal often feel tension between them on the side is into dozen and sixteen genuine large scale protests to them being there. And it's on the back of that that we that I made this trip and amid the drawings. How do people react when you take out your sketch pad and start drawing and focusing in on particular individuals or particular things to start with they think what suspension day, I think I think? It's very unthreatening. So that it sit upright or the other way you might with a camera, and they're just as interested as I am in them. Really? But does that mean that they they break the image because they coming over to see what you're actually doing a good a lotta that endlessly people to get back to where they were. And most of my job is to sit and wait for that kind of excitement of having a strange person that you're going to go back to what they were doing and that takes sometimes ten minutes. Sometimes I think the nice the nice thing about people in that part of the world is run. People and they can carry on with their day with you will not and beneficial to to make and drinks and how quickly do you drill? I mean, presumably you do have to draw quite clearly if you're trying to capture a particular moment. Yes. In the a lotta the scenes. Saying ran the camp the protests quite quickly. I'm they lined up in a Big Sur unbelievable circle about four hundred people and sung to each other. And then moved in around the middle. I just yeah. I just stand there with the drawing board, and there was little boy who is eight had this fate gun on his hip. Just stunning slightly wondering what was going on. We sort of stood watching each other either. Sure, it was a fake gun. We it was fake checked. I thought it was real. And then I asked, and they laughed and said now, of course, it's not. It's those moments that I think a valuable in recording. Even even though the rest of the country is still clearly so desperate and the the poll traits individual portrait's all faces and people what what is it that you are hoping to convey in doing those pictures. I think the story that comes when you during a portrait is often more honest than when you're sitting in front of a camera. It's an interesting interview technique to attaching to be slightly concentrating something else. And I think that often opens up more of a conversation. I suppose we still react very, positively to two drawings of people we see them as human and the something about handmade Mark on a page that really we kind of always turns his first thing we show our kids. We stick them on our laws home symptoms of ourselves. Sometimes if other people and one of the guys that I was restoring new recruit for the. He was a driver before. But didn't have any works, and he'd come to work as he described it. He he wasn't being paid. But if you ever needed anything he got meals a day, and he turned to the general to for some money. He stood up at the end of his thing. And he said, that's me. I'm okay. Very nice moment artists. George Butler speaking to me a short time ago. We'll stay with now because a new report, by Amnesty International alleges that the United Arab Emirates is recklessly arming militias with advanced weaponry supplied by the US and other states. Let's be to the journalist Iona. Craig who specializes in Yemen and the Arabian peninsula. I just before we talk about this Amnesty International report. I mean, I'm pursuing what you have been to the east of the country where George Butler was talking about the people that he was drawing give us a sense of of the context of what's happening there. Well, really where George was talking about his kind of the an invisible line slightly between where the UAE's control IBM's coastline. Almost ends in the Saudis, really begins. So they've got the the Saudis have influence in that in that area. Cooler Mahara, I'm pretty much everywhere. West of there along the coastline is now under the control of leeway proxy forces. So the next for too long is is McCullough then you go west to aids. And of course, now, you then you start to head north around the coast, and you head up to her data weather's now this sort of fragile cease fog having on where the US is trying to get the upper handle has been at that port. So do you A really controls? Now, the vast majority of Yemen's coastline along the south on the south west of the country. Well, let's talk about how they're able to do that these militias that are being armed by the UAE. It is this new what we're seeing in the Amnesty International report this three point five billion dollars worth of arms being supplied being given by the UAE to these militias. I don't think it's new, but I just think most people aren't aware of it. I'm in the UAE has basically built apparel Armenia. And they've given the military sounding names like the security belt all the giants brigade or you got the guardians of the Republic. And so they sound like they are the military, and they even will often described themselves as the national army, but they did not want since the government. They do not answer to the ministry of defense. They aren't it's DUI. They are paid for and trained and provided support by the UAE and the somewhere between fifty and eighty thousand of those fighters that are essentially militias and those arms are as you know, as I'm the report coming from a multitude of nations, including the UK, and the US and South Africa, and Brazil and all over the world, really. And that raises issues really because you have things like the arms trade treaty, which the. The UK signed up to or for the US legally obliged to adhere to end user agreements, which means if the is giving them to third parties, they have to get authorisation from the US government to do that. And even yesterday, we were hearing from the head of central command in the US general vital was testifying to the US Senate Armed Services committee, and he said that authorisation had not been given. Okay. So there are clearly legal issues, but on the ground does it also contribute, then to lawlessness. Oh, absolutely. Because on because there isn't a strict chain of command these forces that are on the ground that there are lots of different brigades militias that aren't always have Pacific commander assigned to the Menendez elements them you've got the Southie. Militias who make up a large proportion of that fighters, particularly in tires on the west coast who are Alterra conservatives who are fighting very much for religious and sectarian reasons. While also getting these weapons Iona, Craig journalist who specializes in Yemen and the Arabian peninsula. Thanks for joining us. Scientists warned that will almost certainly have have to suck carbon out of the atmosphere to stave off catastrophic climate change. In other words to go carbon negative, the method most widely discussed this to capture CO two emissions from power stations and bury them underground. But there are many other ways to do it.
