Gary Ginsberg Talks About the Friendship Between Abraham Lincoln and Joshua Speed
"Actually shared a double bed for four years. But it was not uncommon back then for men to jump into bed together, particularly lawyers who were riding the circuit to do that, because let's be clear there weren't a lot of holiday ends back in Springfield, Illinois, in the 18 thirties. So betting was scarce and men would get into bed together without actually having any sexual relations, so they became extremely close Friends. For four years, and it plays out in the most crucial moment in January of 18 41 went after, as they say, the four years where they share every meal together. They share the bed. Together. They share their intimate secrets and fears and hopes and dreams. But in 18 41 Lincoln becomes depressed and he was prone to depression. He takes to his bed and speed ministers to him over the course of a month and at one point Lincoln and wants to kill himself. So speed takes away all of his sharp objects. It was only because of speeds intervention. Do we even know the name Abraham Lincoln today? But the real twist of this whole story is that they then basically speak goes back to Kentucky. Lincoln becomes, as we all know. Famous lawyer becomes a congressman. And then in the 18 fifties, becomes a candidate for the Senate, and his views on slavery are evolving in the 18 fifties at the same time, that speed is the most successful businessman in Kentucky and also his slave owner. And they've grown apart for a pet 18 forties over some disputes over unpaid legal bills. But 18 fifties they start cook corresponding on the issue of slavery, and Lincoln bares his soul about How he is just tortured by the institution of it and and speed defend. It defends the institution and they have a very honest debate in these letters.
Gary Ginsberg Talks About His New Book 'First Friends'
"And there is really a fantastic book that's been out. It's called First Friends by Gary Ginsburg. Who's got quite a pedigree himself. Gary, How are you, sir? Very well, Thank you for having me Well, it's a fantastic book. And, uh, unfortunately, like every other Interview. There's only so much time, so let's jump right in these first friends that have an enormous influence on the president on an administration. Chapter one talks about Jefferson and Madison. Now, this audience is quite familiar with Jefferson and Madison. But Madison Was very, very close to Jefferson. I'm not sure how how much people know about that. Tell us Well, I certainly didn't. I knew they were great collaborators. But what I learned in writing this book is that they were also best friends, and they were best friends for 50 years from 17 76. So when Jefferson died on July 4th 18 26, and what I found fascinating is that they're 50 EUR 50 year relationship with deep it was emotional. It could veer between the serious like whether we needed a bill of rights to the deeply personal, For example, when Jefferson tried to help Madison overcome being jilted by a 15 year old when he was 32 years old, and they were complete opposites as I write, Jefferson was this tall, dashing Huge personality. Madison was five ft four and quite reserved, but it worked in combination and I think it's because Jefferson needed Madison's exacting mind and practical nature. As much as Madison needed Jefferson's bold ideas in large personality, and I think in my book, and I think in American history, it's probably the single most powerful friendship in the history of America.

"I'm just gonna read a couple reviews for folks First of all. I wanna read this great review that you got from christie rose new york times bestselling author of the fighting bunch. He calls it a deftly crafted thriller. That kept me turning pages through politics. Money and murder is to the ending. I didn't see coming which is an excellent review And then you also got another review hear from 'em brady brady who said heart palpitation. High anxiety read debt bomb. Has you quickly hooked with a crazy. Kick ass plot with a strong female heroine. Espionage political backstabbers and betrayal. And then you've got another one down here from a couple of let's see. Here's here's kevin. Johns who From canada rights as a canadian. I don't know much about american politics. I probably know even less about fiscal policy. But what's i do know is great storytelling debt. Bomb grabs the reader by the collar and then pulls a set of sprint through a maze of political intrigue int international espionage ultimately landing us in a surprisingly emotional exploration of the personal decisions and sacrifices by the protagonist andrea. Like all of us who must make in in the name of what she believes in so wonderful reviews for debt. Bomb there mr ginsburg and there are more there than i did not read and i'm just a super excited. I have not had chance to read it myself This was a quick turn podcast. I had the opportunity to interview you. And i i just wanted to get on it so i'm going to get this book myself. Read it and i hope a lot of people out there do as well What what do you hope to accomplish with this book. In the end you went through the process. You gotta feel gratified by doing it You know our future books on the horizon. Is that something that you want to continue that your passion. Are you just trying to make a point about china. What what's the deal. Well it started out probably a little bit of the ladder you know. I really wanted to get people thinking about the data yet. Having seen both parties sort of back away from it is an issue that was sort of my first motivation. But i as founded. I loved it feeling amusing. The process the imagination the creating of the characters really fun and so i have an idea for another books from starting to lay that out It's probably is in a similar sort of genre but it may be less political with similar genre. You know so working it through and again you know. It's it's the ideas. I get a raw tinged by things that i've read in history. History is a great storyteller. Show things that happen.

"Moving parts to it and it's hard to save. You know it would be difficult for me to say you know americans you need to consume less. Because i think that's that's going to be hard especially for for folks that aren't consuming so much so let's pivot with a little bit of the time that we have left for those that that want to get into the writing business. So you said you had a a writing coach You said you went through three drafts of this thing before you you had to go. Seek out a publisher. What was that process like for. You was did you. Just take it one one hit at a time or did you have someone initially this out for you. What what was the the story line. It was very evolutionary. You know i did. You know a first draft just kind of outlined if wrote it. Put it together Sent it out And people say well you know you got feedback on it and the feedback. Was you know the speech war. That's fine you know that's the problem And so i i get another turn And worked with. Somebody is sort of a mini writing coach. I guess you could say who looked at a couple of drafts. And she she helped me improve it And then you know. I i think i got to the point where i was like. You know if. I really want this to be top notch. A real real would read and enjoy. I really wanna be the people join I needed to get a writing coach and we worked on it. You know we talk every week and we went through drafts and out of that process came the third draft. And then you know. I had decided already. How am i gonna get this published. And that's when i embarked on the publishing process and use the traditional publisher the hybrid publisher which is ultimately. What i houston. There's the south publishing route. So i i started going down the traditional route and learn how difficult that was and then started looking at that so so who sort of you know kind of driving forward hitting a wall backing up steering laugh going around you know and and navigating that there was definitely no sort of battle-plan on day. One i gotta ask you. Because i've heard i've heard some great books that had been projected by publishers. Like fifty times thing of. What was your response rate to this book. Did you get any feedback from the publishers. Did did Yeah what was it like. Sure sure did the traditional agents all came back into. This is really great. But it's just not kind of what i'm interested. I'm interested more and more than that. I was pretty careful about the agents that i is. You need to get an agent to talk to the traditional publisher. So i was pretty careful about the agency i targeted by You know they. They really need the thing that they're gonna sell gazillion box because Otherwise it's just not going to be worth their time and there's upfront advances all this stuff so that's a route. That's very difficult. The hybrid route on the other hand. You know. I had several hybrid publishers. Come back and satellite this. This is good. There's potential some of them. Were just ready to publish it. Those are actually the ones. I was most worried about some sort of like. Wow that's probably not so perfect that it can't be improved a little bit so actually went with one that that made some substantial changes to it. That really liked it but said there's places where we're going to need to fiction. Should you know these guys are really serious and they wanna make the super bowl. It's now is actually how i decided awesome. Well let's go down here..

"Maybe we should have That this was the regime that was really willing to despair nothing at maintaining its power unlike orbital that was real difference gorbachev ultimately was unwilling to send his troops to shoot protesters in the streets. The chinese weren't and that that distinction is one. I think maybe we didn't appreciate at the time. Maybe we do now I don't think it's hard to blame the us as to say while they should have known it was different. But you know sometimes. It's only apparent hindsight and i think that. Wdm eli there. Been a lot of benefits to the united states to to the engagement But i think it hasn't worked out enough to to say when we do it all again and say yes. What do you think about american consumption. And its reliant. On chinese products is are we overreliance. Is that a product of you know basically producers saying. I'm going to go where there's the cheapest cost for me to make my product on because such an insatiable desire in the united states. Do we need to change our attitudes on as americans a little bit in order to kind of mitigate the threat. That's that's coming from china or does not matter. Well you know. I think it's a it's a great question you know it's one i know folks have been looking at normal one hand. You want to say. Well you don't wanna be in business with a country like that. You know impartial moral grounds. Right i mean this. Is you know nothing genocide in in in the weaker of the weavers in mongolia. Show now that. We know that. I mean that's so so that has to be away before they were doing that back in the nineties to thousands when they were just producing goods. Newt bit a huge boom to american lower middle class.

I'll be able to pay the higher prices of domestically made things but there are people that won't be able to pay those prices. And you know they're the ones that are gonna be bearing the brunt of the policy. So that's why it's kind of a tricky question. Of course you know there. There's the question of whether or not We really should we be in the business of sort of picking winners and losers were. Have we do most of these things that we are talking about. Would we be making them anyway. Domestically it's it's. It's very thorough..

"That's where they would like to see this cow. I think that they're they're handling things in a in a pretty clever way by developing their economic influence. What they call debt diplomacy with the belt road that you mentioned Some of it is more aggressive. What they're doing in the south china. Shame he certainly but there. It's all sorts of that that near abroad. You know they're they're sort of pushing the limits Ever so slightly. Our iran know. They're they're they're working in may have nation iran and several years they have agreements with a booty. They have a base there so they definitely have global ambitions. I think they would surely like to see has pushed out of the pacific in the sort of the near you know middle term To make to used to of it as an american lake. I think that they want to to change that For for themselves It does provide a sham opportunities. Because i think there are countries in that you know in the blast radius so to speak that. Do not like the thought of that All the southeast asian countries vietnam odia island even the burmese. I don't like the chinese very much that the vermes people and the philippines. I mean. they've they've tried to make nice with the chinese but it has gotten them very far and of course. The australians new zealanders are stuck there to this is an opportunity for the united states to make common cause and kind of rekindle. Maybe the the containment of your. But i think there's no question and and at the other issue courses that you know that is not just about ideology. This is about survival for the chinese communist party If their economy starts to slow if they continue to have domestic issues. It's a safety valve of putin doesn't for You know it's an opportunity for them to with up nationalism and chauvinism that Maybe deflects the concerns of the people with the domestic issues. The communist party so there are a lot of complicated reasons why i think their ambitions are pretty broad. Yeah so we're sitting where we are today okay so so it is what it is but just because we're on a podcast and we can explore different things because it's fun Look back at the nine hundred ninety. S i you know. We had the fall of the berlin wall. There were very strained. relations between china and russia. China did not have a military capability to match the united states at all In the ninety s where did we go wrong if at all when we look at today with hong kong being completely seated to to the chinese and now basically under authoritarian rule And kind of just this. This absence of democracy and increased autocracy in china. Where did we screw up the particularly with our engagement. And i'm i'm getting into the debt crisis thing i'm trying to ensure serve one up here in your wheelhouse. Sure notes is a great question is a great question you know. Hindsight is always twenty twenty. And i think people reasonably thought that More engagement would lead to you know opening and democracy. We had just come off the experience of the soviet union glasnost and perestroika and all that and it. It wasn't unreasonable to think that something similar could take place in china. I you know. I wonder if we didn't maybe she tiananmen square in nineteen eighty. Nine is clearly for what it was as..

A great example did a space probe you know the chinese are building themselves a space station. They're starting to watch astronauts but that's where we were fifty years you know we've already moved on move into the private sector now. The private sector's doing and you know it's just that the ability to do the sorts of things is something that you cannot do in chai why people come to the united states and why chinese people want to come to the united states. It's why chinese government officials send their children to go to school in the united states. I mean if we really wanted to cause trouble. Stop that they'd go crazy Shy it's it it something that i think we don't. We will necessarily focused on or appreciate quite as much in the in the daily conversation while for sure and i would. I guess i would say Japan has pretty much. Come out and not surprisingly. If you know you're east. Asian history japan and china go way back but by japan has basically said that. Hey if you do anything to taiwan. We consider that a threat to japan out of the headlines. Just now the the philippines who have once again a reiterated Their stance On chinese aggression and the united states has declared that kind of like a nato type pack that any sort of attack on the philippines is an attack on the united states. I wanna get your gauge based upon your research. What do you think. The long game is for for china. What are what are they trying to accomplish it. Simply just the reunification of of what they consider. China with taiwan coming in in to fold do they want That whole sphere of influence over the south china sea and into japan. Do you see that they are starting to again through the ring road or potentially their their influence into africa. Do they have global ambitions or is that just to shore up our economy. But just what are your thoughts on. This is funny. I literally of the book i read before. The i'm reading. Now is a biography of mouse. Seven hundred page biography of mao. He wanted everything he wanted. The world a he wanted to be the preeminent communist power but he also fell The china was destined to rule. Your and i think there is a strain of thought within the chinese communist party that that she's china as the rightful preeminent country in the world So i i think the long long game can centuries..

"But you've got china and that they they really are a competitor in ways that even the soviet union wasn't In terms of their entanglement with the western economy they are much more entrenched and in some ways. You know conflict with them so much more delicate matter By the i guess the other issue was you know. I see and this the same thing you saw with japan in the eighties and other countries. Always some country. The bricks you know. There's always some country that everybody says you know their common and it's only a matter of time before they catch the united states and You know we're going to be sort of left in the dust and everyone of them has stumbled somewhere. Along the bricks of stumble. Japan's stumbled. I tend to think china will to at the end of the day. I wanted to come up with a book that highlighted the importance of freedom and really the importance of the individual to be able to affect change or at least proposed change promote change and countries like china simply the sort of sclerotic. And that's just all allow for that And it's an advantage that i and all these other countries to supposed- countries are going to take the number one position from the united states. They all shuffler from varying degrees of that. Same issue. So i i wanted to highlight the fact that yeah i mean we. We've got a debt problem. That's huge But i think there's a point where i say freedom got us into this mess with freedoms going to get us out of this mess and i think that's really true and i think we under shell that in the united states as we we talk about. All the foibles in issues in the united states. I think we sometimes lose sight of just how important freedom has been to our success for sure for sure and that kind of popped in my head again.

You know folks On all sides of the political spectrum have chimed in and said that you know it's a good book it's a good read. go enjoy it and so you know. Let's let's take a step back a little bit and let's go back to where the idea came from Again you know you you have this great career you you said that was burning desire to write the book but there's one thing from having an idea to write the book and another to sit down at a computer keyboard and start hammering out not only the book or maybe an outline. Or what have you so you know what happened in your life where he said you know. Okay now i can actually do this. And i know you said the hatch act already so no that was certainly part of it You know part of it too was You know the. I guess it's hard to say that there was any one particular trailer event but i you know having the time plus you know i had to have two young children so i spent a lot of time up and put them to bed.

I'm even less sure that we would be prepared to do it now. And it might not even come to that because of the militarization of the south china say in the much stronger position.

This cat and mouse game between her trying to fight back against this debt crisis that the chinese engineered and the latest sort of shallow. The chines fire. And it's this back and forth in that that's sort of how that plays out. Is the big of the story. So so where did this. Come from your by trae. This is your first book. You're an attorney by trade you've served in the government. I you've had a pretty incredible career with with the intelligence community as well So why why write a book. Sure right a you know. It's like i joe. It's something that has been in my head every day thinking about I really do think about the consequences of that. And i think when i went to work in the government it brought that into just shook sharp. Relief sean how big the government was how much it's doing how much it's spending and i don't think there's anybody that could really tell you the the entirety of what the government does from the president on. Nobody knows everything the government is doing. Its back big of an entity. And they're just so many things that we spend on. I would see things like you know. I mean something as simple as like you know. They would have an ice cream social for the employees at at the at the dna. Where i was. I kept thinking about. Oh my god. How much did this cost. Were putting into that and that mindset was just. It was a concert driving into work. Think about driving home from see construction on the beltway and think. Oh my god the chinese are paying for this and so i. I joke with people. I sort of decided to monetize my neurosis by by writing a book about it because it was just on my mind. And i guess the other impetus of it because when you're in the government you're you're subject to the hatch act. So i was politically active for a long time before i went into the government but when i went into intelligence community of very restrictive And i really was to be honest with you very disappointed in how the republican party has handled the debt issue over the last several years when it had an opportunity to do something. That was something. I i had a big issue for me. It's why voted republican and to see us not take advantage of the opportunity to deal with. It was disappointing. Yeah so so. Let's talk a little bit then about where this issue stems from deliver to research to kind of go. Obviously prepare international affairs. i do follow it for sure but you know maybe not on a blow by blow basis so i wasn't surprised to learn how much debt china holds in the united states. I knew that they were pretty major up. But so folks have some contacts. They currently hold more than a trillion dollars of us treasuries which is roughly about four percent of our current debt..

According to his wikipedia page he served in a couple of positions during the carter administration before that he was a legislative assistant to senator.

Supreme Court blocks strict COVID-19 restrictions on New York houses of worship
"Of New York state's strict attendants limits on religious gatherings. The rules were designed to help slow the spread of the Corona virus. It's 5 to 4 decision highlights tensions that have grown during the pandemic between secular leaders and some religious groups that also opens a window on the new makeup of this court. Now that Amy Cockney Barrett is on the bench. NPR's Brian Mann is in Westport in upstate New York and has been following developments have Ryan Hey, happy Thanksgiving, Ari. Same to you. New York has seen tens of thousands of covert 19 deaths. So what immediate impact is this ruling going to have on the state's attempt to fight the pandemic? State officials say there's no immediate impact. The Roman Catholic Church and Orthodox Jewish groups brought this legal challenge and state officials have already rolled back the so called red and orange zones that covered their churches and synagogues. So the rule limiting attendance to his fewest 10 people, even in big religious spaces. It wasn't actually being enforced. But the ruling could limit new restrictions here in the future at the number of cases really surges again in New York, and this also sends a message. You know two other governors around the country how the Supreme Court will look it at any of their restrictions. What's the reaction been today from the religious groups that brought this case? Yeah, they've declared victory. They say this is an important win for religious freedom. They point out that New York was still allowing so called essential businesses to operate in Corona virus hot spots without the same level of restriction. And this win for religious leaders is reversal from the Supreme Court's posture just last summer that gave governors ah lot more leeway fighting this pandemic. I spoke about this with Douglas Laycock at the University of Virginia, he's legal expert on religious liberty. Governor's orders in New York, where some of the mystery Cockney and in the country the first case where Amy Cody Barrett really makes a difference is compared to respect her Ginsberg and it slipped the result and they're not going to be different from the governor's anymore. They're really going toe examine closely for signs of discrimination. And Laycock points out, Ari that governors can still restrict religious gatherings. They just can't restrict them in ways that are different from rules for businesses or government buildings. And now New York governor Andrew Cuomo was named personally in the lawsuit. How did he respond to the ruling? He described this as a political statement being made by this more conservative bloc that now defines this court. But in his daily coronavirus briefing today, Cuomo did also acknowledge the complicated tension here. Look, I'm a former altar boy Catholic Catholic grammar school Catholic high school Jesuit, said college, so I fully respect religion. And if there's a time in life when we need it at the time is now. But we want to make sure we keep people safe at the same time, and and that's the balance we're trying to hit, especially through this holiday season. And I should add, are that this isn't really new. Here. We've seen deadly Corona virus outbreaks in New York around religious communities following ceremonies, funerals and weddings, for example, right from the start of this pandemic, and religious leaders have clashed repeatedly with caramel, also with New York City's mayor. Over how far elected officials can or should go to limit new infections. Now, you mentioned that this reflects the new makeup of the Supreme Court, and there was some tense language in the opinions tell us about what the justices said. Conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote a concurrence of green with this decision that was pretty biting. He wrote that, according to Governor Cuomo, and I'm reading here, quote it may be unsafe to go to church. But it's always fine to pick up another bottle of wine shop for a new bike or spend the afternoon exploring your distal points and meridians. That's Reference thereto acupuncture clinics that remain open in New York. Meanwhile, in her dissent, Liberal Justice Sonia Sotomayor pointed out that in the past, the Supreme Court has given public officials broad leeway in cases involving religion where public safety is a concern, she pointed The fact that the Supreme Court upheld President Trump's ban on immigration from certain Muslim countries. So justice Sotomayor suggesting that this ruling reflects a double standard. NPR's Brian Man, Thanks a lot. Thank you worry. It's a tough call to make telling your family you won't be

Amy Coney Barrett set for Day 2 of confirmation hearing
"The Senate Judiciary Committee returns this morning for day two of Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Cockney Barrett. On the first day. Yesterday, we heard opening statements from members of the committee. Republicans made the case for Barrett's confirmation. Here's Judiciary Chair Lindsey Graham. There's nothing unconstitutional about this process. This is a vacancy that's occurred there tragic loss of a great woman. And we're going to feel that they could see with another great woman. Democrats, meanwhile, said they're Republican colleagues are rushing this effort, and they tried to paint Barrett as a threat to the affordable care act. Now today, members will get their chance to ask her questions directly. We've got NPR Congressional reporter client great solace with us this morning. Hi, Claudia. Hi, Rachel. So what did each party the members of the committee Democrats and Republicans? What did they try to accomplish in the first day hearings yesterday? This was an opportunity for senators to frame her nomination. They did most of the talking. After all, Republicans painted bared as a worthy successor to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but in the mold of barrettes mentor and that's the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Democrats underscored the rush to confirm Barrett in the midst of a pandemic. Remember Two of the GOP members tested positive for the illness this month, and one Mike Lee of Utah, showed up yesterday, less than two weeks after his diagnosis. He also showcased what at what's at stake. Senator Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, who also sits on the committee dialed in to participate. Let's take a listen By replacing Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with someone who will undo her legacy. President Trump is attempting to roll that Americans rides the decades to come. So Democrats highlighted concerns that barrettes nomination is being rushed so she could be seated in time if there's a dispute tied to the presidential election and to rule on an affordable care act case that will come before the court next month. So they shared worries that she could limit the A or abortion rights tied to the landmark case. Roe v. Wade. Republicans, meanwhile, tried to portray Democrats is anti Catholic, even though not one raised the religious belief issue right so yesterday was all about opening statements, and Barrett herself gave her statement what we learned for that. She said. Although she was nominated to succeed Ginsberg, no one could ever take her place. She said she closely followed Scalia's judicial philosophy. She clerked for him. Let's take a listen. His judicial philosophy was straightforward. A judge must apply the law as it is written. Not as she wishes it worked. Sometimes that approach met reaching results that he did not like. But as he put it in one of his best known opinions, that is what it means to say that we have a government of laws and not of men. She also noted that the courts have a vital responsibility to enforce the rule of law, but that policy decisions are better left to the legislative branch. So today, the official questioning begins, right and presumably, we're going to hear a lot of what we heard yesterday on the affordable care act, but in the form of questions to Judge Barrett, yes, members will question Barrett on our position on a lot of these key issues such as health care, an abortion rights. Each senator will get 30 minutes to question Barrett. So with 22 members, this could prove to be a much longer day. Republicans will use this to highlight her conservative judicial record. While Democrats will grill Barrett on conflicts of interest and how she'd rule on future cases will press her again recused herself in some of these instances, such as the day or if there's a dispute with the election, But as she's done during private calls with Democrats, you'll likely declined to make such commitments or share how she might rule on these issues

Processes nomination consistent with rules. And I look forward to coming days will be a lot of fun. It will be fun for them. See Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and other Republicans because it's an unprecedented chance to secure a conservative majority on the court for a generation. And also to recharge the election campaign by energizing the base help Amy Barrett and President Trump Fight back stand up for conservative values Republicans But also Democrats have adjusted their campaign adverts to address the unexpected vacancy on the Supreme Court is rushing through a Supreme Court nominee to do just that step away care from millions of Americans and pre existing condition protections for Democrats. This is a nightmare, a job for life. A court that sets the nation's social and cultural direction on issues like gay rights, gun control, abortion and Obama care. Judge Barrett is very fair, but fans of Judge Conti Barrett are convinced she's the best candidate for the job. She's a popular law professor and Laura Walk was one of her students. Judge Barrett is not swayed by any type of personal preferences or things like that again. Witness that in the classroom no one ever knew what Judge Barrett thought about an issue. She never let her students he never Pressured them to think a certain way. Everything was hyper focused on the law. Democrats don't have the votes to stop this, and they're furious about the politics. Today I am nominating Chief Judge Merrick Brian Garland to join the Supreme Court. In 2016, Republicans blocked President Obama from filling a Supreme Court seat because it was an election year. But now that they're in power, they've changed their tune. And the conservative media is almost giddy with excitement. This is going to have a massive impact on the American judiciary, thus gonna have a massive impact. On American culture and society. If Donald Trump secures the Supreme Court seat, even if he doesn't win the election, his presidency will be deemed a success by the ideological right and by evangelical Christians. That's why they voted for him, and it will be remembered as a turning point for the nation on some of the issues that matter the most to Americans.
