Mark Shaw: The Cover up That Let Carlos Marcello Get Away With Murder

"Was it wolf? Yeah, Morris. Morrison, why do you suppose he did nothing when he could have done something? Well, I think that you can see a stream of information about senator Cooper, who was one of JFK's closest friends. And that's where Morris Wolfe met Dorothy kill gallon at these parties at senator Cooper's home in Georgetown. And I've confirmed all of that. You can see a stream through there where he's having second thoughts, of course. He submitted, he writes a letter of resignation, which he doesn't send because they aren't inviting him to the hearings. They're not telling them when the hearings are. If you can imagine that. And then he starts to question things. And if you look at what Morris wolf said, he is continuing to have doubts about all of this. And then he decides, okay, I'm going to go along with it, Eric, because I'm going to get the dissent that senator Richard Russell and Georgia want that we both want in the final report. It's going to say we don't believe in the silver bullet theory. We don't believe in the Oswald alone theory, and we've been guaranteed by none other than chief justice Warren that that will be in the final report. The reason he's hiding in this photograph is because they never put that in there. And you imagine how history would have changed if that would have been in the report. Things would still have been open. Marcelo and his people got away with murder, basically, of the president of the United States because they covered all this up. And that's I think why Cooper kept quiet. You know, they had a coat of silence. LBJ and Hoover made them basically sign the fact. I don't know if it was an actual document. They would never talk about this. And if you look at the media coverage of the Warren commission, they never did. For all those years, they never did anything.

Mark Shaw: The Kind of People RFK & JFK Were

"The only thing, I mean, when I was reading the book, I was thinking it's sad that marital and Monroe died. It said, particularly that Dorothy kilgallen died. It's less sad that JFK died because when you look at his life, the depravity is astonishing. It is absolutely astonishing that the level of entitlement, the idea that his father and his family had extreme extraordinary power and that they used it to rig an election, which is an abomination in the United States of America, all crime is wrong, but to steal an election is really, really dirty. And then of course, as a young man, married to a beautiful woman, he is bringing prostitutes into The White House. It's just so dark. And so awful. So it seems a tragic tale, whether he's assassinated or not. It's just so filthy. Well, it all comes around, you know, in life. And I have new information in fighting for justice. JFK's a senator. He's obviously having sex with his secretary. And it's in a building in Georgetown. And he goes over there, and there's a woman who lives next door. And she decides to go ahead and let him know that she's going to tell the media about it. He confronts her on the street on the street the next day with his finger in her nose. You go ahead and you do that, you'll never work in this country again. Okay? That's what kind of a person he was. And then Joe Kennedy just covers all this up. I mean, JFK was married before he married the Jackie. And Joe covered that up. That was his greatest, but of course the least. It's almost funny. That seems like a charming thing, you know,

"Raymond Ibrahim, welcome to the program. Hi, Eric. Great to be with you. Thanks. Don't be nervous that you're sitting in for John's mirac. Others have done it before. Many of them have died, violent deaths. But I'm just saying, just put that out of your mind. But when John's mirac raves and raves about someone, it's really not difficult to us for us to understand, we need to get this person. And so we're just really grateful to you for coming on. And tell my audience a little bit about yourself. I mentioned that you're the author of a brand new book called defenders of the west, the Christian heroes who stood against Islam. What is your own background? I know you have an Egyptian background as well. Yeah, so my family is the cops Coptic every time I say that word coughs have to people ask me what precincts I come from, but cops Coptic of course the indigenous Christians from Egypt so my parents immigrated to the United States in the mid 60s. I was born and raised here. Because of that background being coming from a Christian minority sect from the Middle East, surrounded by Islam. I was always interested in, of course, in those issues, but then in college, as you mentioned, Victor David saints and was my professor for many years and I'm proud to say a friend and mentor and so forth. I naturally gravitated towards history, military history, and then long story short in 2001 when I was writing my master's thesis with the Victor Davis as Victor David Sanchez my chair. It was actually about the first military encounter between Islam and the west for really Christianity, Christendom. And because I was employing the languages I was studying, Arabic and Greek and so forth. And anyway, long story short, and then that's when 9 11 happened and I went to Georgetown university, studied there for a little bit in their contemporary center for Arab studies, which is, as I later found out, it was very ideologically charged. And I left there. Despite stellar performance, I might add straight age, but I had to leave there just because of the political reasons and then I got a job at the Library of Congress in the near east section where I dealt with Arabic materials and other Middle Eastern languages. Sounds writings by Al-Qaeda in the early 2000s and long story short. That got translated into my first book, the Al-Qaeda reader,

"I've detailed the Clinton death slash suicide list of people who've been around. Ville and Hillary Clinton. And why don't we just review this? It's been a while, but there was James mcdougall who was Clinton's convicted whitewater partner who died of an apparent heart attack. While in solitary confinement and he was just only a key witness in Ken Starr's investigation, I mean, that could happen. I mean, that could happen. Then there was Mary Mahoney. Who was a former White House? A White House intern. Who's murdered in July of 1970 7 at a Starbucks coffee shop in Georgetown. And the murder happened just after she was to go public with her story of sexual harassment at The White House. Many of you know about Vince foster, the former White House counselor and colleague of Hillary Clinton at Little Rock's rose law firm, he died of a gunshot wound to the head, the back of his head, which is a weird way to kill yourself, but either way they call it a suicide. There was Ron Brown, secretary of commerce, and the former DNC chairman, they say he died by intact and a plane crash, and a pathologist close to the investigation reported that there was a hole in the top of his skull, resembling a gunshot wound. At the time of his death Brown was being investigated, and he spoke publicly of his willingness to cut a deal with prosecutors. Don't do that.

"However, I want to go to the list of the most absurd universities that you probably don't want to see in your kids too if you want them to have an open mind and have the freedom of speech. Skidmore, I have never heard of skidmore university. You just give more college as a private college. They're amongst the top 5 words.

And so kids from Colombia university has something to say about them being ranked last, obviously there was a mixed emotions when they were interviewed on campus. But one of them said, I think everyone here is very open minded and so I'm not sure are really sure where this is coming from. And in the article we read, it says, however, Rihanna, a senior at Avi Lee school, said, of course, people think they can't say things. I think people think they might be judged by the majority. If you go through the statistics and you look at the biases, right? I mean, you would think that people on campus that are afraid to speak would be generally anybody who wants to speak out. However, there's a disproportionate representation of conservatives. That are afraid to speak out. According to statistical data from fire dot org, it says that conservative students are most likely to feel they can not express their opinions freely with 42% reporting that they often feel uncomfortable speaking freely compared to 13% of liberal students.

All right, good morning, gene right now in Virginia adulthood the bellway is yet south of the American legion bridge as you pass underneath of the bridge for Georgetown pike again, traffic stopped in the works, and once you do get moving, you will get by single file to the left. You're doing some demolition work. I saw a bunch of sparks flying so as a result for safety procedures, they are holding traffic in that work, so again, you should hopefully get moving here in a few minutes. It looks like they're done doing what they're doing for the moment, at least for now. So hopefully they'll stop moving again soon on the outer loop of the beltway. I should say on the inner loop of the beltway coming north of Tyson's toward McLean between the dull's toll road and Georgetown pike, two lanes to the wreckage by goodbye without delay. Now elsewhere in Virginia pretty quiet ride on 95 in both directions between Springfield and Fredericksburg, three 95 between the beltway and the 14th street bridge on the Virginia side you're looking good.

Trump Lawyer Christina Bobb Describes FBI Raid on Mar-A-Lago

"I have a great deal to say about what happened at Mar-a-Lago, the FBI raid, but I'm going to hold that back a little bit because I've got the wonderful opportunity to talk to somebody who is who was right on the scene. The Christina bob is an attorney for president Trump at save America. She started her legal career at the U.S. Marine Corps. She was deployed to Afghanistan. She's defended marines in court martials, and she has a specialization in national security law from Georgetown law center in Washington, D.C., Christina, what a crazy business we're in. Something that I haven't seen in my adult lifetime. I'm not even sure if it's happened in American history. We have the DoJ of an existing administration raiding the residents of not only the man that Biden ran against in 2020, but very likely a quite possibly the man he might run against in 2024. Now, you were there, let's start by talking a little bit about I want to walk through this a little bit slowly, but let's start with Mar-a-Lago. Mar-a-Lago is not merely a kind of club that people can belong to and they can come and play golf, but president Trump lives there, doesn't he? Yeah, it's his personal residence. And I mean, it's his home. It's where he lives and is where he spends most of his time, you know, this time of year he's up north in New Jersey, but Mar-a-Lago is very much president Trump's personal residence. We were, of course, at Mar-a-Lago for the premiere of 2000 mules, and it was it's a lovely place. Trump now is not at Mar-a-Lago. He's in New Jersey. And so this raid evidently occurred in his in his absence. Talk about talk about it now from your point of view. Were you on the scene? How did you hear about it? Give us sort of the blow by blow. Yeah, I responded 'cause I'm one of president Trump's attorneys that lives in the area. I live not too far from Mar-a-Lago. And I got a call that said, hey, you need to get down there. The FBI is on site, and we need a presence there. So I went down. So I arrived after the FBI was already there, and tried to get a copy of the search warrant. They wouldn't give it to me initially. And they said they didn't even have to show it to me. I fought with them for a little while about that and said, you mean to tell me that you want to roll up at the president of the United States personal residence and you want me to take your word for it that you actually have a warrant. So they eventually showed it to me. And then they, you know, they gave me a copy of it after everything was over. So the whole thing was relatively uneventful as far as like, you know, there was not a whole lot you can do when you have a large number of FBI agents rummaging through the president's personal residence and his office in the area that he lives in in Mar-a-Lago.

Then on the added loop as your purchase 66, you get positive work sound two lanes to the left and keep in mind the exit ramp to go west on 66 is open at this time. 95 northbound slow into the work between the Prince William Parkway and one 23, single right lane passes the overhead sign worked on up near the fairfax county Parkway, looks like you get by now in a column of twos to the left past the crash cleanup.

Now in the district again they are setting up a work center that's already in place and suitland Parkway, westbound as you approach for Sterling you must turn it for Sterling, you can not go beyond that point. Eastbound traffic has to stay with south capital street. This is due to a traffic pattern change on suitland Parkway between two 95 and first Sterling, and if you're on two 95 north and south, the exits to suitland Parkway on boat directions are closed as part of that work.

How Did Pollsters Get It SO Wrong With Trump? Ari Fleischer Explains

"Ari, I have to I've said it many, many, many times before when you've been on the show just for a few segments, but I want to say it again now that we have a longer opportunity to discuss your new book. You are a straight shooter. You do call balls and strikes. And you have one of the most honest Twitter channels out there. Let's talk about what you saw in terms of the four year reaction to president Trump, which hasn't diminished in the last year. I will call a month before the election in 2015, The New York Times in this quote unquote scientific poll said Hillary has a 92% chance of winning. And then on the night of the election, The Huffington Post I've saved the tweet because I think I need to get it framed. On the night of the election, you have to impose that something equivalent of Hillary has a 96% chance of winning and Donald Trump is a 2.3% chance of winning. That's on the night of the election. So here's my honest question to you. What are the dynamics? How do people who are supposed to for a living process in formation get it so stinking wrong that 64 million Americans chose the other person not Hillary? Do they really just sit in their cocktail parties at Georgetown and just talk to fellow Democrats? How do they get it so wrong again? And again and again, Ari. The bachelor twice, I have gone to his invited by the Columbia journalism school to go to their classes and meet with young reporters and both times I did it. I asked them in the previous presidential election. Who did you vote for? Democrat or Republican? 24 to zero was the count. Democrat to Republican. The problem with newsrooms is in its original sin that my first chapter in the book is called original sin, they consist of too many people who drink alike talk alike act alike think alike. They can not understand people, Sebastian, who pray every day. They have a hard time understanding people who were raised with weapons in their homes, or whose grandfather took them out hunting.

'Supreme Disorder' Author Ilya Shapiro on His Georgetown Experience

"Guys about a very interesting story, it's with our next guest Ilya Shapiro. I'm an Ilya for quite a while. We spent some fun time together. So Elio is run out of Georgetown university. It's an extraordinary story and he's the author of a new book called supreme disorder. Exposes how politics has infiltrated the Supreme Court in the worst possible way with this right now to help us unpack that is Ilya Shapiro. Ilya, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Good to be with you. I've also recently launched a new sub stack Shapiro's gavel. So in addition to the book, go check that out. Very good. So Ilya tell us what happened at Georgetown. It's a very interesting story. And I mean, you know I'm no fan of college, that's not a mystery to anybody, so it just basically confirms all of my criticisms, which I'm going to deliciously enjoy. Tell us what happened to you at Georgetown university. Sure. I've been at the Cato institute for nearly 15 years. The nation's preeminent libertarian think tank. And decided that maybe I should look for a new challenge, have a different kind of impact. Got a very interesting offer from Georgetown law school to become executive director of their center for the constitution as it turned out the rest of the law school is basically the center against the constitution. But what we can get to that, a few days before I was due to take that job in February, was when justice Breyer's retirement leaked. And I was doing media on that. Supreme Court politics is my area. And I was critical of President Biden's decision to limit his candidate search by race and gender, famously. He said he would pick a black woman. And I thought, you know, if I was a progressive Democrat president, I would pick judge Sri srinivasan, chief judge of the D.C. circuit, who's an Indian American, would be the first Indian or Asian American, has to be an immigrant as well. So lots of diversity points too. But not the right kind, it turns out. And so by operation of logic, we would, in my mind, end up with someone less qualified, a worse choice for a democratic president. And given Biden's criteria, I phrased that in Twitter's limitations as a lesser black woman. And really, it's those three words that got me in hot water. The manufactured outrage machine on social media and beyond calling for my head. I eventually

Why 'Supreme Disorder' Author Ilya Shapiro Resigned From Georgetown

"Guys, I'm really happy to welcome to the podcast Ilya Shapiro. He's senior fellow director of constitutional studies at the Manhattan institute, but previously he was the executive director and senior lecturer at Georgetown university, the center for the constitution. He's the author of supreme disorder and other works. I want to talk about his experience at Georgetown and related to some of the larger issues we're dealing with in academia. Ilya, welcome to the podcast, great to have you, it seems like you've gone through a kind of a traumatic experience that Georgetown. But I think you're not alone in facing this kind of an issue. So maybe I'll begin by just asking you to describe what happened at Georgetown. It all started, I believe, with a tweet. Yeah. Yeah, good to be with you, dinesh. I had been at the Cato institute for nearly 15 years doing constitutional law. And thought it might be a good time in my career to switch to try to have a different kind of impact, got a wonderful offer from Georgetown to head up the center with alongside professor Randy Barnett, a giant of constitutional law. A few days before I was due to assume my new duties, so this is at the end of January, when news of justice Breyer's retirement leaked, I was doing media that day, I was on the road. I was in Austin, Texas, and used what's not a best practice in doom scrolling my Twitter feed late at night in my hotel room, and was unhappy with President Biden's having declared that he would be limiting his candidate pool by race and sex. He said that he'd pick a black woman. And I said, well, look, and to my mind, if I were a democratic president, I would pick Sri srinavasan. He would be the first Indian American justice as well, very well reputed on the D.C. circuit. But of course, he's disqualified because it doesn't have the right intersectional characteristics. And that tweet set off a firestorm. I was even before joining Georgetown, I was suspended, and there was a four month long investigation into whether my commentary violated the university's harassment and anti discrimination policies. At the end of which they discovered, oh, one of their lawyers looked at the calendar and realized I had not been an employee when I tweeted. And so those policies didn't even apply

Georgetown Professor Resigns After Being Attacked for Free Speech

"So a professor a Shapiro. Let me begin with having people understand the context of your resignation, it began with your being attacked for a tweet you had sent out, and do you have the entire tweet in front of you or memorized? I do, I do. Here's what I here's what I wrote. Late at night, while doom scrolling, bad practice, don't do that in a hotel room if I've been at home rather than on a business trip, this wouldn't have happened. I'd be in bed with my wife, but this was the day that news of justice Breyer's retirement broke and I was doing media all day putting out statements and whatnot because I was at Cato almost 15 years and head of their con law shop. Commenting on the Supreme Court about it, which I've written a book, you can see it behind my head, supreme disorder, judicial nominations, and the politics of America's highest court coming out in paperback, July 5th, updated. For the last two years. And so I was getting more and more upset about President Biden's decision to limit his pool of potential candidates nominees for the Supreme Court by race and gender. So I tweeted objectively best pick for Biden is for navasana who is solid Prague and V smart. You have to shorten things on Twitter. There's a character limit which contributed to what I admitted was poor phrasing overall. So I said solid progressive very smart. Even has identity politics benefit of being first Asian, Iran's Indian American. He's an Indian immigrant. As it happens, the chief judge of the D.C. circuit. But alas doesn't fit into the latest intersectionality hierarchy. So we'll get lesser black woman. And it's those three words that got me into trouble. They were maliciously misinterpreted as saying that suggesting that no black woman could ever be qualified for the Supreme Court or that all black women were lesser as humans, I guess, than all other people. And as I've written before, as I've explained, that's you have to be acting in extreme bad faith wanting to get me fired and otherwise, to interpret that in something other than the standard critique that 76% of Americans agree that Biden should have considered all possible candidates, not just restricting them by race and sex, but anyway, I tweeted that, I went to bed, January 26th, I woke up in a firestorm had erupted online very soon moving offline to Georgetown, those were a few days of hell.

"Tucker Carlson last night. His analysis cut 15. Here's Tucker after he watched the Nina jankowicz, the new disinformation czar, channeling Mary Poppins to announce on TikTok, her new role, here was Tucker's classic response. Since the point of the show, we're going to say we're kidding, we're making all of this up. It's not really happening in the country you were born in, but it is happening. That's now a law enforcement official. It's also the person you just saw an individual who brags about getting a master's degree from Georgetown university. In case you were wondering if the entire academic credentialing machine that sustains America's ruling class is in fact a joke spoiler alert, yes, it is a joke. This is somebody was so few useful skills that she describes herself in the first words of her own bio as a quote internationally recognized expert on disinformation. As if that's a job of some sort. Imagine if one of your kids grew up to be an internationally recognized expert on disinformation. The shame you would feel. The pain of knowing that truly an unequivocally you had failed as a parent. After all those years of advanced education, Nina jankowicz became an internationally recognized expert on disinformation. And not only that, she can't even rhyme very well. When Nina Jenkins can do her one skill, the purpose for which she was hired is level partisan attacks on the other side with maximum ferocity. That is her real job. Now you may have noticed if you listen carefully to the diddy did she just say that every example of disinformation her karaoke performance came from people who oppose Joe Biden's policies? Is that a coincidence? Probably not.

"Wednesday morning. Georgetown loses again. 70 63 at home, seat and home. It's now zero and 8. Georgetown, I think when it got to zero in 5, it had never been zero and 5 and biggie's plan. If it wasn't O 5, it was 100% it had never been Owen 6 and biggie's play. Now it's zero 8. Next game will come Thursday night at home against the slumping St. John's team. Maybe the hoyas can get off the schneid there. I tweeted it on Tuesday. I honestly truly never thought I would see the day where the Georgetown hoyas were zero and 8 in Big E's play. So I asked you, a, your thoughts on the state of this program, and two, I think we would agree that shortstown is not going to fire Patrick Ewing. But do you think we are now headed toward a situation where Ewing resigns for the betterment of his Alma mater and Georgetown winds up opening when we get to march? It has to be on the table. Georgetown is a complex place. And it's always it's never easy to. Guess how they might handle any situation. But it is going terribly. I actually wrote about it in the dribble handoff. A question this week was coaches on the hot seat. And I decided to write about Patrick Ewing. Because as I wrote, I grew up in the early 80s and my two sports I attached to earliest were baseball and college basketball. So Patrick Ewing is literally one of the first larger than life sports figures I can remember. He was so awesome at Georgetown. And so when the Georgetown job opened, and he was a candidate and he got the job. I can't tell you that I knew it would work because I'm done telling you, I'm sure anything's going to work. I'll never do that again. Let's just loop back around 6 weeks. Let's see. Let's see where we're at. Okay, unless it's Rick patina. Rick Pitino's the only thing I'll say works. After that, I just say, yeah, they could work. But, you know, I've been wrong before. So I couldn't tell you, I knew it would work. But I can tell you I hoped it would work. Hey, because I just think Georgetown being relevant in basketball is important. That's one of the biggest brands in the history of the sport. I knew of Georgetown as a child. I didn't know it was a great academic institution. I didn't know anything other than that place got an awesome basketball team. Year after year after year. And. So I hoped it would be, I hope this Patrick Ewing thing would work because I just think college basketball is better with Georgetown matters. And then I hope that will work because I thought it would be cool for lack of a better word to watch Patrick Ewing. Lee Georgetown, back to a place of prominence. And I noticed a few weeks ago, is that, you know, because Patrick hasn't enrolled the number one recruiting class in two of the past three years or had a preseason top 15 ranking or cussed out the local media told economists to stop asking stupid F in questions. Nationally, people just don't pay attention to it too much. But they don't talk about it as much as the Memphis program under penny Hardaway has been talked about. But if you do it an honest assessment of things in Memphis is an absolute circus. Don't even get me started. More reports last night that I will not get you started. That are just weird. But low key, Patrick Ewing at Georgetown is much more of a thing that's not going well than penny Hardaway at Memphis. There are now 6 and 13 overall this season zero and 8 in the big east. They're at risk of going winless in the big east. And if they did that, trivia time, trivia time. Fire at me. If Georgetown goes winless in the big east, which is very much on the table. What year? I'm going to pull, I'm just pulling out of a hat. I'm going to say 1213. 2009. Reddit, Reddit, put that down at the incorrect answer from dead leg. So now Georgetown is 68 and 72 overall, 26 and 52 in big east games under Patrick Ewing. Throwing an 8 game losing streak. And they're about to finish 8th or worse than the Big E's for the fourth time in 5 years. So the question you asked me is do they have to do something about Patrick Ewing at the end of this year? Whatever that looks like. And I'll say, again, I don't know. Because he's Patrick Ewing. The same way Memphis has to handle things differently because it's penny Hardaway. I think Georgetown has to handle things differently than it's Patrick Ewing. We can both agree. I think we can both agree. If this dude's name was John Smith instead of Patrick Ewing, it'd be over with not even a chance of survival of getting a 6 year agreed. But it is Patrick Ewing. And that has to be taken into consideration. You want to give him every opportunity to succeed. But how about this? The previous coach was John, Thompson's son. And they fired him for less, or pushed him out for less. JT three made the way tournament in 8 of his first 11 seasons. Went to the final four in year three, and then yeah, went to the final four in year three. 8 incidentally tournament's first 11 seasons. And then missed it finished 8th and the big east in year 12 missed the incident again in year 13, finished 9th in the Big E and that was that. So let me ask you this. If you move on from big John's kid, for missing the incident tournament, a total of 5 times in 13 years. How do you keep anybody? It even Patrick. After he misses it four times in 5 years, and only made it the one time because of an auto bend. That team wasn't good either. Let me put it this way. JT three finished 8 or worse on the Big E four times in 13 seasons. Patrick is about to do it four times in 5 seasons. Yeah, I think that we're just about we're just about there in terms of needing to have a change. If it keeps going.

"Which would be pretty cool jordan riley. This is great. I think georgetown is going in. The direction needs to be going but that big east tournament run was something special. Gp lauded on the pods. So did i. It was really really really cool to see happen. You know there were no fans at madison square garden. I don't know if it was normal. Times and fanny pack in that place if it would have gone the same way for georgetown or not but they got to the tournament and then promptly got destroyed by who gary perish the computer the computer triggers colorado computer triggers. I've forgotten man. He did got colorado. Colorado came out and played the best game in the history of the nc. Double georgiana label the computer triggered. That was that was a humbling experience for me. Control zied by colorado did georgetown. They're so there's a logical why georgetown isn't getting enough respect it. Yeah they won. The biggest tournament was awesome moment. Like that was a top ten moment throughout the entire season last season but they were eight in the league and they lost almost all of their production. We'll see what you can do with talented. New class would love to have georgetown more relevant kinda similar. Even though there's not coaching change happening anytime soon with georgetown but like with usc and football. And what it's going to right now clayton helton's out and they're going to try and get in some big time like when. Usc is good football for that side of the coaches. It's obviously very very good for the sports. Same thing with georgetown. We talked about on the podcasts couple of times last year. I want your sound good. I want to see him relevant. I wanted to see him competing. Top half of the big east. But there's no real logical reason to project georgetown to be a top five team in that league heading into the season. If you in can really make something what. This talent led by muhammed. That'll be wonderful but we got to see it happen. What about your thoughts. Why you would think. George town's going to be good. They were thirteen and thirteen. Last season finished sixty kim palm. Even after that run in the big east tournament lost their top four scores and enrolled a top sixteen recruiting class. That sounds great. this is one of my issues. We talked about with the way twenty. Four seven sports ranks classes like how they players they get their recruiting analyst together and they say we think shading sharp should be head of a marbella even though his mother's boy that's fine but the way they ranked classes. It appears to value quantity over quality. And so georgetown has. I believe a five player class. So it's ranked sixteenth in the country but it's one five star and four sub one fifteen prospects. There's no way that that i would. You'd laid everybody's recruiting class on the table and said i can take them. There's no way. I would take georgetown steam because i was doing that john calipari column after kris livingston committed. I was going back and looking at every john. Calipari recruiting class even dating back to his memphis days. So i ended up going all the way back to two thousand seven and his memphis class in two thousand seven was ranked forty first in the country. It had derrick rose in it we have derrick rose in your class. It's not the forty first best class in the country. That's how i knew. New mexico state had the thirty ninth ranked recruiting class that year. Two spots better than memphis because why had seven players. Five of them were three stars. None of them were five. Stars memphis has class had two players but one of them was derrick. Rose so you tell me if. I'm a basketball coach. I can take new mexico. State's class with five three stars or memphis's class with barrick road. We're taking roles. And i think that is what is going on. Georgetown's sixteenth rink class in america. They gotta it's. It's almost with one exception. It's all players outside of the top one hundred in their high school class. And that's not the type of class you win with immediately in the big east and so you lose your best players from a team that yes got hot one. The big east tournament congrats. Hang a banner if you want to but the team was still just okay and they lost the best players from that team and i don't think replace them with comparable talent ready to win at a high level so as much as i hate this. 'cause georgetown is one of the big brands of my childhood. Georgetown was among the biggest brains. If not the biggest brand. When i was growing becoming a college basketball fan. And it'd be awesome if georgetown were consistently relevant. It'd be awesome. Patrick ewing got that thing going. But i you know. There's nothing on paper that suggest you're is going to be competing for big east title this season. I don't know how anybody could make that argument now. That argument can be made all right. You want to this. I may regret throwing this final question in for this episode. But why don't you go ahead and queue it up. Question comes from alex tell. The story is.

Why do we have to force companies to sell this product to manufacture and this product They're a bunch of explanations. No one explanations is financing costs.

Who's writing a dissertation about exactly that point and finding that. That isn't the explanation for the puzzle. What what's sager my colleague at georgetown and i find in this paper is that we look at the claim for automobiles about the extra expenditure on the upfront. Cost of the car would more than justify the future savings and we point out that that depends on how much you're gonna drive so if you're planning on driving every day a long distance to work at buying a fuel-efficient vehicle would clearly pay for itself. Because cost savings of that gasoline not consumed would be high. But if you're the kind of person who likes to work most days as i do and a and doesn't live very far from work and and the car sits in the driveway. Most of the time buying fuel-efficient car doesn't make any economic sense on personal for personal finance reasons and so we look at the customers. We know we have data on how far people drive and what kind of cars they're driving. We would expect to see the people who drive a more are in the more energy efficient cars and that turns out not to be true at all in it as soon as advising a defensive discount rates at their prey on the future stream of Savings rate so.

Don't if you see him coming to your slave run okay. How did they tracked them. Is it possible. And they wanna know bridge way. Wants to know. What is this underground railroad world. I'm hearing about where is it. How do you get to it. What is going on. No one can seem to tell them. Here's what say as a review if you've been to do a slave story let's think of the successful ones even underground first season. You said ref. Let's think about twelve years a slave. You know if the out roots. When i pulled out in the thing is it is not slavery that were watching concerned about it. Is the people the characters were slaves berry care about. In routes we see him in africa. He's free then down. Next twelve years slate these free north they come and get them smaller the man down at the south and they're fighting for their freedom and underground we see this relationship mob. Dr sun is there. The mass says involved all of that before they run. Watch him underground railroad. It was just to me okay. these are some slaves. That's how it felt. These are some slaves and they're dealing with certain parts of history. And i know this history. I don't need to see. So what's the hook. I couldn't find him cutting. Find now some of the diction here. Now you know refugee normally one of those him know they say and all live. I'm sorry to so wonderful acting half of what she was saying. I didn't know what it was now sees a south african actress doing southern it. It is southern but you still have to enunciate. i'd i would have to have subtitles for some of that. i'm sorry anyway. Barry jenkins directed every episode. Everything is beautiful. it's very jacobs. Yes it looks beautiful. They start with the scene that might fall into the style of what is happening. The the whole color is a kinda like sanded down and like this warm kind of sunlight coming in like a beautifully done. Yes but is it worth it. The world needs to be more clear. I ain't readable. It's like it's like if you read the book you probably get it. Kennedy's people okay. I was waiting for to take off. I wanted it to soar. Didn't now we go to some recent entries. The good lord bird bright. Don't showtime yeah. I would say this is a little more intriguing. But what i was really thinking about is the handmaid's tale. Oh interesting interesting okay. Similar level of execution overall where the handmaid's tale though like the first season was good. Then you keep watching vacant. Can we move forward. That's how i felt you can be like booth. Why am i doing in all of this torture already seven. I'd say about twelve years a slave. That was clear. We all rooting for chula. That is just so. That's what i'd say about the underground railroad. If you've read the book i would say check it out just so you can see berry jenkins vision of that if you haven't if you're in the mood it's right there on prime video. Yeah it's right there free for you if you are a prime member now. Let's move on to the movies. Georgetown you saw this back. When i took knows this guy's georgetown you saw this in twenty nineteen at the tribeca film festival and finally getting its theatrical release along with availability on digital and on demand on the fourteenth. It's available on theaters. And then after that a couple of days you could fish around and find it digitally if you want to explore that avenue now this is christopher walz crisper waltz direct dating this out christopher when you think of him you think. Oh he's an actor right like us. I don't is he a director. Well we have talked about recently. I'm show a lot of actors. Moving into directing Is he a blender interesting question. Well you know he is an artiste at. I love his interviews because people are like. Oh how'd you get into the character. And he was like a. That's my work. I'm not talking to you about how i got into anything. Watch my work. Yes so he definitely is of an artist shall we say But you know not only. Is he directed. He's also starring and of course you're going to make that happen but his written by david auburn And the cast alone is just worth giving it a shot. Vanessa redgrave redgrave annette. Benning corey hawkins. Who's been doing some lovely lovely work Along with a lot of other actors and actresses that you will recognize Some of them being you know. Americans are just from across the pond and honestly the reviews. Aren't that great So what you got to say. Bravo now look at the beginning of georgetown. We're told that while this film cannot claim. To tell the truth it is based on actual events and there were introduced. Oldrich motte playback kristoff and he's a man who's he stressed in some sort of military uniform. He's overseeing some sort of military exercise. Why i mean what does that. Then we see all rich at a dinner party in an expensive home in dc each georgetown neighborhood and he's servants some very important guests who worked for the government in several capacities. So you think minute. See some sort of waiter what is going on. Well no no because these are talking about him as he serves them and they each state howard portent he is as a man with various connections counts but.

"Mike yesterday's jill. Hillary who's counting at georgetown university. He's founding member of the circle. Kate to frank think tank management. He's also research fellow at the french military police academy at the senior fellow at the asian bureau financing economic surge local. Jill thank you very much tation. Thanks doing this. So i learned to start the bone of the papers From two thousand eight It's entitled this religion matter it corporate decision making america. You see the excitement of corporate culture. Influences firms behaviors most specifically have religiosity in films environment effects. Its investment decisions and you focus on the us here demeaning economic environments. So could find at the speaker right. So part of my research is Behaviorally nature right. So so that's one example of that stream off of research that i'm engaged in So this is called through with Y hoy and so we were curious to see if the government in which a firm is operating is affecting its operation and more specifically if like the type of people you're interacting with will affect the corporate culture of the firm and so What we did in that paper is that We got some data on how religious ah given county in the. Us is right so how many people would go to a place of worship out since it's the us it's typically a church Bloody could be. It could be any type of Mesa where like mosque laura or a synagogue or any other place of worship Then we look at what the literature in psychology telling us about the link between Religiously t in and risk aversion and we found civil a papers that focused on experimental evidence suggesting that There is a positive link between the two like religious t and risk aversion Often correlated. And so what we did in the paper is ted weather That extent to communities. And we find indeed that that's when a firm is located in place in county Were a lot of people are agreeing to replace worship then That firm is Much more risk averse doesn't invest as much The cash was less volatile and so forth.

"You're in is stressful time. So be kind to yourself and take care. I recently wrote in forbes about how kamala harris may be able to heal the wounds between black women and white women but i defer to our terrific yesterday on these issues. I'd like you to meet dr. Marcia chatelaine a provost distinguished associate professor of history and african american studies at georgetown university here in washington dc. She's a scholar of american life and culture previously. She was an assistant professor of honors in african american studies at the university of oklahoma in norman. She earned her. Phd at brown university and her undergraduate studies at the university of missouri columbia in journalism and religious studies fellow aspiring journalists. They go. Marsha was a terrific expert featured in the recent pbs series. The vote on how women fought for and won the right to vote over an eighty year struggle or more welcomed green connections radio. Marcia thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. Oh you're welcome. You're welcome so our start in the heart of this issue. As i said in my introduction i've understood the black and white women had a kind of love hate relationship if you will during the suffrage battles as i understand it. Black women wanted white women to include abolition in their struggle. But the white women leaders believe the combining the two would keep the legislation from. What is your take on it. Tell us the truth. Because you're the historian so the issue at hand between abolition and suffrage are deeply tied. And that's because a number of figures in the suffrage movement were first activists in the fight against slavery and i think the poignancy of the battle for women's suffrage was the fact that many of the white women who were at the lead of the suffrage movement were anti-slavery and they had supported. Abolitionist may have believed that there was a moral reason to end the system of slavery but when it came to suffrage they were divided over the issue of universal suffrage Some do not believe that black women white men should equally have the vote. Some did not believe that black men and black women should have the vote. So i think that the suffrage movement really exposes the limitations of racial solidarity even among people who were on the right side of history one issue were not able to transfer that sense of grace to the issue of suffrage. And that's where you see the fault lines. In the suffrage movement really emerged from it was the fact that they did not want include african american women visibly or prominently or ideologically in their fight for the right to vote because they believed that it would degrade the quality of the vote of degrade the preciousness of the right and a number of these women again. Even though they were morally opposed to slavery they would not immune from white supremacist ideas. Okay so there's so much to unpack in there. You said something really interesting you said and i paraphrase of course but the the the divisions over the vote represented larger divisions in the racial schisms. If you will Racial solidarity behind the vote. Yes so one of the things that i think..

"On etcetera and there are a lot more of those kinds of technologies coming out soon. And then we'll discuss how you can break these things in the future so feature ways to reestablish piracy and that includes taboo which includes schnorr and masked most importantly so the lightning network. You may be familiar with it. It's a way of transacting offline. Bitcoin bitcoin off the blockchain. So you can have a transaction with someone else and only you and that other person know about bitcoin. And it's not recorded on the blockchain so that transaction is very private as an only the payee and the pair know that it occurred and no one else can track it so big privacy game and then the history of lightning transactions stored publicly anywhere. So as soon as you stop using lightning all those transactions are just kind of lost to the history so really high privacy other benefits of light in our include really cheap fees really fast transactions. So it's a pretty great innovation. It's not a quite ready. It's still being developed but already provides some great privacy benefits the second one the second best way to preserve your privacy is by using corn georgia world pool so this is a picture of a coin transaction on the left you see the green inputs so in zero in one and two and on the right you see outputs so bitcoin is put in in various amounts and then it's all mixed up and reassembled in various amounts on the output. And if you look at the outputs you'll see that they're all in equal amounts so it's almost impossible to tell which input leads to which output very difficult to you know. Get any information out of this graph. You know you can't see who sent what who. And this way all five of these outputs look identical. Even though the inputs belonged to five different people so great for privacy. And what point does is it establishes anonymity said so after this imagine you had one bitcoin and you put it in as one input and then you got one bitcoin out. If in this case there would be five outputs of one. Bitcoin and you'll be one of them so someone trying to track. You would have to guess which.
