A Song For Peace

The first thing to know about Cafe California is what it wasn't just one hundred and twenty five meters up Dizengoff was a legendary Bohemian cafe called carseat.

Then that had lived a good deal of life. Netanyahu was born in nineteen twenty seven in the southwest corner of what is now Iran in a place called Abedin on the Persian Gulf just.

It was with a few restless L. Buddies that Netanyahu opened cafe. California soon, it was filled with the city's young wannabe writers, directors and poets the people most eager to knock from their sinecures the city's old writers, directors, and poets who argued and held forth at carseat.

Scientists work to protect fish could be undone by climate change
"Andrew Rosenberg has always felt most at at home near the see. I grew up on the ocean I've been sailing since I was two years old by knew that whatever I was going to do I was gonna work on the ocean. He made good on that promise. He earned degrees in fisheries science oceanography and biology and has studied and promoted ocean health for more than forty years. In the nineties. Rosenberg worked for the National Marine Fisheries Service there he helped develop regulations to address overfishing in New England and the mid Atlantic. He says, fish populations have slowly started to recover, but now climate change threatens to undo that Progress I spent a lot of my career and a lot of blood sweat and tears on trying to and problems of overfishing, and now we have another major human impacts problem that might wipe out those accomplishments. The Gulf of Maine where Rosenberg lives is warming faster than almost any other spot in the world's oceans species such as lobsters and clams are already moving north or to deeper colder waters. So Rosenberg says preventing overfishing is no longer enough to protect ocean ecosystems. The world must limit global warming.

Ballot blocks: the squeeze on Hong Kong
"The squeeze on political freedoms in Hong Kong is ramping up and fast. On Friday, the territory's Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced September's planned elections would be postponed for a year and poss- sediments. I've always had to make difficult decisions but then the announcement I have to make today is the most difficult decision that I have to make in the. Insisted, the delay was only to avoid the spread of COPA, nineteen. The decision to postpone them the training train t electrical election has nothing to do with politics has nothing to do with a likely outcome of this round of. PRO-DEMOCRACY PARTIES, AD HOC for success in the poll riding a wave of discontent at Beijing's recent imposition of sweeping national security law. The legislation broadly defines and harshly punishes subversion sedition collusion with foreigners. Nathan law one of Hong Kong's most prominent pro-democracy activists recently spoke with our sister podcast economists asks why? Phones. Movement is still really strong though there have been protests against the new law. The millions of people who wants surged onto the streets have largely stayed home is police have cracked down harder just try to imagine if you live. In a country place that that is no freedom of expression freedom of them fraiche ethan freedom of thoughts. Then definitely, like protests does not exist or will be lushly quashed earlier last week, twelve pro-democracy candidates were banned from running whenever the elections happened. On Saturday, on Kong's police issued arrest warrants for six political activists living in exile in the West. Since the promulgation of the national security nor on July the first of the scope for political expression has been very much. Dominic Ziegler writes Banyan, our call him on Asian affairs. And because of that, there haven't been any street protests. of any size since July the first because of the consequences. For those taking part. But nevertheless, there has been widespread concern about postponing the election by a year, the Bar Association, representing senior barristers and other lawyers in the territory has expressed what it called grave concern and it said that a decision to postpone September's elections for the Legislative Council, which is known as Mexico was undermining a vital constitutional rights and so what does that mean in practice? What happens with the sitting lawmakers? There are all sorts of implications about what it. Means in practice because hitherto Hong Nor has been very clear you have to hold elections for this quasi-democratic legislature every four years. So the government of Kerry lamb, the chief executive is in a bit of a pickle about how it justifies this. Although she said, it was for reasons of the pandemic several other jurisdictions have been able to carry out elections, and that includes recently elections. In Singapore, there are certainly suspicions that the decision was taken not because of. The pandemic, but because Democrats had a good chance in fact. Gaining for the first time a majority in this rather gerrymandered council and indeed even obstructing a government policy or criticizing the government has it has been suggested by the authorities the risk of falling foul of the new. National Security Law. So this decision is absolutely shot through with politics, but nevertheless to take some finessing by the government. To show that the move is legitimate, the chances are that how it will manage that is to get a ruling from on high from Beijing saying that this is the appropriate course and it's worth bearing in mind that Beijing has always since Hong Kong's return to China. Has Always had the authority to intervene in Hong Kong's has the understanding would be that this would happen only rarely. But in the last few weeks, we've seen it happening time and time again, I think this is going to be the practice for the future. But what about the the the candidates who were banned from running here is, is there a risk that that Beijing will start to essentially stack the LegCo with with loyalists there in this interim year? This certainly is a risk Jason the bear in mind that all the moves around legend. have been made in order to ensure that the pro democratic camp does not secure a majority in the legislature. Now early last week, the authorities did this by disqualifying a dozen also candidates caming that even for criticizing the National Security Law that gave the government grounds for not allowing them to run. Now, a few dozen candidates actually sit in the current Legislative Council. So one big question that the authorities have to find an answer to is whether those four legislators continue to sit in a council session is is now being extended by a year. The chances are that the government will find means to disqualify. Those four and Beijing's moves go further than that. Recently, they're speaking of arresting pro-democracy activists outside of the territory, which is also unusual. That's right has happened in the past week on July the twenty ninth four students were detained for supposedly inciting secession. This seems to have had something to do with facebook page and shortly after became clear that the police had put on a wanted list, a number of activists who are currently in exile. So, there is an example for instance of how China intends for this new national security in order have jurisdiction beyond the borders of the country itself. These people were in the United States, the UK and elsewhere. One of them was not even a Hong Kong citizen better taken up US citizenship and so as as Beijing's hands gets heavier in Hong Kong Antoine Indeed all over the world. How are people coping normal life goes on so far as both the virus and the new political restrictions allow what is certainly happened is that the street protests that so colored and royal the territory last year are now very much a thing of the past. So the act the concerned the worry that. Has. Taken hold in the territory is one that is not always voiced publicly but in private conversations and the concerns really are about Hong Kong's long-term future. One of the possibility is certainly that many people discussing is immigration and a number of countries have. Roots towards long term permanent residency or even citizenship. Those countries include the United Kingdom Australia Canada, the United States. But many people are not in a position to leave immediately. But what happens now with all of the momentum that was behind the protesters but this whole movement now that protests themselves have died down to the protesters are moving abroad. What happens now it looks like well, over half of Hong Kong's population is in favor of democratic change but the possibilities for that through politics and through the ballot box have been very sharply restricted in in recent weeks. So there's a conversation emerging. About what form opposition should take? So people are starting to draw parallels with the Eastern European bloc during the Soviet era too many people here the national security nor is starting to look like the Ray quick building of the Berlin Wall in the early nineteen sixties and people are drawing comparisons with opposition in the decades following that in eastern Europe and that opposition took perform of underground dissident, it took the form of dissident writers and The church played a big role in eastern. Europe. Some hope that it may do here in Hong Kong one positive sign has been taken from last year's protests is an extraordinary. Creativity in in the form of protest art in the form of. Video making. So the hope is that maybe these avenues might at least allow a civil society not only to to hang on by its fingertips but also to grow. Don Thank you very much for your time fact Jason.

America's recent protests against racism and police brutality have drawn much interest in the Middle East. Some people have reacted with shock some with Schadenfreude. For others though America's unrest was an opportunity to discuss the problems with race in their own countries. Most Arab states have a black minority, each of which faces its own discrimination. The worst treatment though is reserved for migrants. There is a scene that played out almost every day for weeks for months outside of the Ethiopian embassy here in Beirut he would see cars pull up and drop off their passengers if the OB and women who were carrying their possessions and suitcases are in bags. Great girls from is our Middle East correspondent based in Lebanon these weren't women catching plane or catching a train. They had nowhere to go actually word maids, domestic workers whose employers. Could no longer afford to pay them because of the economic crisis here in Lebanon also couldn't send them home because the airport was largely closed because of covid one, thousand, nine, hundred, and so they dump them off outside the embassy they simply left them there to be someone else's problem. You would meet women who said they'd been sitting there on the curb for days on end using their bags as pillows simply left the fend for themselves. And isn't that kind of a general comment on how Lebanon treats migrant domestic workers? It is even before cove in nineteen. Before the economic crisis, there was widespread racism and harsh treatment of migrant workers here there are a number of cases where Lebanese have advertised their maids on facebook as if they were property, there was a post back in April that offered a Nigerian made who was described as being very active and very clean and she. was being sold for one and a half million Lebanese pounds, which is worth about a thousand dollars at the official exchange rates. There was also a clip that was circulated widely here in Lebanon in June it was from a television channel in Ghana that covered the return of two hundred or so Ghanaian citizens from Lebanon most of them. One, hundred, eighty of them were women working as domestic workers here, and they described horrendous conditions and treatments. Fit. After that sexual harassment. They bit s like animals. I have videos of this. I went through in that country and they also warned other people not to follow them to Lebanon not to come here to work. No. Doubt Music and go back to Lebanon is not a country that we should be. How does this situation come about? Where for instance, an people find themselves trapped with arguably abusive employers often starts with unscrupulous recruiters are agents migrants who come here to other countries in the middle. East. Are often promised good salaries, respectful working conditions and they arrive and find out that it's anything. But but then they find themselves trapped for two reasons. One is they often have to take out loans to pay fees to these recruiters and the loans can run thousand dollars two. Thousand dollars which when you're making only a few hundred dollars a month and you're trying to send much of that to your families back home it can take many months if not years to pay off those loans. So they find themselves trapped by debt. They also find themselves trapped by something called the Catholic system, which again exists here in Lebanon and many other countries in the Middle East whereby migrant workers are bound to their field or their sponsor, and so they can't simply. Changed jobs because their residency in their work permit is connected to their sponsor, and if they leave that job, they have to leave the country. So you meet migrants who say despite the awful conditions they're making more money here than they would make back home, and so they're willing to they're forced to continue to put up with US conditions because they're blocked from finding another job, and so all of this is a function of how the Lebanese feel about migrants or is this. Strictly a racial thing. It's hard to separate the two because almost all of the migrants here are either from east and South Asia or from Africa. So it's often connected to race as well as their status being migrant workers but the racism here it cuts across socio-economic lines I spoke with a black diplomat too says been pursued through upscale shopping malls Lebanon by security guards thought she was a housekeeper and they wanted to know why she was shopping without her madame without her employer. So Racist, certainly a problem here and in other countries around the Middle East and not only when it comes to migrants states across the Arab world have black minorities. You have Egypt for example, the Nubians who have been there for thousands of years you have in the Levant and the Gulf states black communities that are often the descendants of slaves taken by Islamic empires or the descendents of African Muslims who made pilgrimages to places like Saudi Arabia and decided to stay again, those communities face various kinds of commission as well. Would you mean by that? Will you hear some of it? Simply in the language that people use darker skinned people referred to with terms like opt, which means slave Anwar Sadat was president of Egypt darker skin than his predecessor was sometimes referred to as his predecessors black poodle you turn on the television in the Middle East and black face is fairly common sight on Arabic language television and no doubt that kind of racism manifests in in everyday life in lots of ways, it does you see it in areas of life. March choice of partner you have families that will see skin color as a marker for Associate Comic Status Lighter skinned people seen as being wealthier and more educated. You see it in the workplace as well in Iraq, for example, where there's a black community that has been there for at least a thousand years they to this day struggle to obtain government jobs and they're often relegated to doing menial work and living on the outskirts of society. You see it as well in the Gulf states where there's almost a racial hierarchy to employment. If you walk into a Nice Hotel and the Gulf you might see black migrants from Africa working as security guards or as porters. You will see them far less often in jobs that require interaction with customers. Waiters hairdressers, things like that those jobs which are better paid than less taxing often go to lighter skinned workers from Asia or from Arab countries I mean racism has been very much on the agenda over the past few months because of the the killing of George Floyd protests that erupted across the world did that wave of protests hit the Arab world as well? The protests themselves. Didn't reach the Arab world. This is a region fortunately protest often a criminal offence of we didn't see much in the way in street demonstrations either in solidarity or around the region's own issues with racism but it has certainly escalated the conversation that's taking place both online and offline. There was a video that circulated quite widely earlier this summer was shot by a Palestinian actress condit's. Who recounted some of the just casual bigotry that she's heard and day-today Life Semis Ben Aston Headache. Mariam. People often argue that it's harmless. It's just words. And allow. Them. One of the points that she was trying to make in this video is that it does hurt people and that it does have an influence not only on the targets of it but on societies broader attitude towards Black Arabs, and do you think having these kinds of discussions on social media and the like will make much of a difference? Is it enough having a conversation about these? Things is certainly better than nothing. But one thing that we've seen certainly in America through years and years and years of protests against racism and police brutality is that just having a conversation doesn't actually bring political change or social change. That's something that takes a long time and it also takes concerted effort in politics and education, and unfortunately one of the problems in countries across this region. Is that there are few avenues to do that, and so it's good to have a conversation about these things but. The ways that you actually go about making concrete change. Unfortunately, those ways are often blocked in the middle. East. Thanks very much for joining US greg.
Trump Wants to Ban TikTok, NASA-SpaceX Mission Success, & Unemployment Benefits Expire - Monday, August 3rd
"It's Monday August third president trump wants to ban TIKTOK. Info on the NASA spacex mission success plus unemployment benefits have expired why trump's team is interested in Biden's VP pick and more. Welcome to Rob Song, podcast where I bring you the latest Progressive News and politics and ten minutes or less I'm Robert Cunningham thank you for tuning in. Let's get informed. So president trump announced on Friday night that he wants to ban Tiktok Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that trump would be making an announcement on these matters in the coming days he said this on Fox News Sunday morning futures where he also said that Tiktok, the Chinese owned short form video APP needs to be taken down via executive action in addition to Tiktok. Mike. POMPEO. Pointed to we chat, which is a Chinese messaging APP saying that both of these are feeding data directly to the. Chinese Communist Party quote for a long time a long time. The United States just said well goodness if we're having fun with it or if a company can make money off of it, we're going to permit that to happen president trump said enough going on the secretary of state added and we are going to fix it and so he will take action in the coming days with respect to a broad array of national security risks that are presented by software that connected to the Chinese Communist Party. Microsoft has emerged as wanting to potentially by all US operations of tiktok accents reports that trump does have a deal on his desk where Microsoft would lead acquisition of the US operations of six talk and Microsoft seems to believe that it's possible that a total separation can happen from tiktok parent company by Dance. It's important for you to understand that presidents normally can't just order a ban on individual companies like this but the fact that Tiktok has a foreign owner allows the Treasury Department to have broad. Authority over it. Now, at this point, it's unclear whether trump is going to allow Microsoft to buy it or if trump is just going to push for an all out ban, we don't know. But what we do know is that this is super weird coming just months before an election six does have one hundred, million US users, and so it is rather strange move it could alienate some I mean granted I don't know if it would make much of a difference, but it just seemed strange. NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Bankin are safely on earth after a historic flight to and from the International Space Station provided by SPACEX Axios says on Saturday afternoon both astronaut splashdown into the Gulf of Mexico after about two forty, eight PM eastern time a space x vessel was able to recover both astronauts from their crew, dragon? Capsule. Hurley in bank in two month mission was the first time that people have been launched into orbit from the United States. The end of the space shuttle. Program in twenty eleven. This new move of partnering for Space Exploration, with private companies can allow NASA to act more of like a buyer instead of a provider of these services now and will free up NASA's budget to focus on things like getting people to the moon and eventually other planets in the future. In fact, NASA and SPACEX already have another trip planned this time for six months with multiple. NASA. Going up to the International Space Station, this will take place around late. September. So be on the lookout. Additional unemployment benefits of six hundred dollars per week expired on Friday July thirty first and reportedly the White House Senate. Republicans and Democrats are all know we're closer to a deal? Apparently, all sides are on board though for another twelve, hundred dollar check like was done with the cares act earlier this year the main point of disagreement is the additional unemployment benefits six hundred dollars extra. A month is what people have been receiving since the cares act was passed Democrats want to continue at that rate while Republicans want to. Bring that down to two hundred additional dollars per week while eventually moving holy to seventy percent of lost wages Republicans additionally wanted to get a one week extension on the six hundred dollars per week of additional benefits passed quickly. But the Democrats are refusing because they think that the Republicans are just GonNa. Use It as just a quick win and move on. But the Democrats are saying that they want a full robust bill. Now, the Democrats have proposed a three trillion dollar deal while the Republicans are looking to pass. A one trillion dollar deal, and as of yesterday junk Schumer the Senate Minority leader said that there were significant divisions remaining but good progress is being made quote. We made good progress. There are lots of things we are still divided on and we're not close to an agreement yet, but we are making good progress and I'm hopeful that we can get to an agreement. Now they're going to resume talks today. Okay. But do not be fooled. The Republicans are trying to place the onus here on Democrats but Democrats came. Up with a bill back in May the bill back in May like I said had a three trillion dollar price tag. It was approved by the House but then has not been voted on in the Senate and Senate Republicans want to have a one trillion dollar bill that does not do nearly enough in my opinion. So but as of right now you know who's GonNa Suffer America, the American people that are unemployed we just had on Thursday. One of the worse GDP records for quarter ever if not the worst. The percentage of GDP lost was close to thirty three percent. I hope we get a deal soon things are super hard to pass in Washington obviously, and I'm glad that the Democrats are sticking their feet in and trying to get this thing passed the Democrats are not perfect and I fear that they're going to cave too much here. But we've got to get something done because there is an eviction crisis looming we need to renew the moratorium on fictions. Now CNBC just posted a study recently that twenty two to fifty nine percent depending on the state that you live in of renters may be facing eviction as a result of the corona virus economic circumstances these numbers are horrifying and I'm sure this isn't the last time you'll be hearing about it. Trump's campaign paused ads over the weekend, which is really weird because they wanted to rebrand their messaging and new ads launching today are going to be depicting Joe Biden as a puppet of the radical left. This comes from two senior campaign officials but the most recent internal polls show that the puppet of the left's attack on Biden is going to resonate with voters and speaking personally in someone who lives in a very heavy trump territory. The this is the talking point that I've heard Oh Biden's not the problem it's. Going to be the VP you have to look out for as if Kamla Harrison. Some sort of crazy radical assuming he chooses someone like her speaking of the VP spot trump's campaign is very interested in that because the quote unquote radical left thing that they're going to be using their ads is a placeholder for whoever Joe Biden ends up picking. By the way, we will learn who Joe Biden is going to pick around on tenth multiple sources have suggested he said now he pushed back his self imposed deadline from. The first week of August to the second week and one source has said that it's going to be August tenth now. So be on the lookout here. No matter who Joe Biden picks. I think that Joe Biden is well-positioned. Of course, we all have to go out and vote that. This is not a matter of that we have to vote even if we live in California or Massachusetts or Oklahoma Even for God's sake, we have to vote for Joe Biden, but it doesn't really matter as much who he picks. Think this go around because trump's campaign is reportedly very upset that Biden doesn't have the unfavorability rating that Hillary Clinton did in two, thousand, sixteen, all of this trump at drama gotta be Biden's campaign to respond Andrew Bates. Director of rapid response said quote the American people know Joe Biden and after seven consecutive months of failed leadership during the worst possible health crisis in generations they know that our nation's capacity to join the rest of the world beating back cove nineteen has been crippled by one overriding burden donald trump. Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina said on Sunday that he believes trump is trying to put a cloud over the election and that he does not plan to leave office. If he loses Clyburn told CNN that the American people had better wake up to trump and he compared trump to Mussalini and said Russian President Vladimir Putin is akin to Hitler further representative Clyburn said quote I don't think he plans to leave the White House. He doesn't plan to have fair unfettered elections I believe that he plans to install. Himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold office. Now, all of this is to say everything that Clyburn is saying here means that we have to so overwhelmed the vote that trump cannot cheat. We have to force him out of office because on January twentieth at noon no matter how hard trump tries he will not be the president if we overwhelmed the vote and like Joe. Biden. So that's what we have to do. If you need help getting registered in your state, go to vote Dot

"Talking to the manager sometimes she said she actually worked for New Orleans tourism for twenty five years or so and she said I wanted to settle in Bay Saint Louis because this is where the New Orleans people would go on vacation down. That's a quote we're New Orleans. People go on vacation Asian so it really made me appreciate Bay State Laws So. I'm sure Chris you've been to New Orleans right. I haven't eat only once so there's no beach each there. So when people from New Orleans one go to the Beach Day Saint Louis as the closest beach. So it's about forty five to an hour and a half full way depending on how fast you drive in which route you take two beautiful full sugar sand beach so I can see why people like it there. I was there in October October. And I had to stop at a place called Creole creamery. Just something I read about. And I've been to be Saint Louis Four or five times yes and every time I went. That ice cream place was closed than I love. I spring so I learned that. That's an off shoot of New Orleans ice cream place so there are things like that. Where something from New Orleans popular and then they'll open it up in bay Saint Louis so it's got that vibe hard that it's a little New Orleans e but it's a lot coastal Mississippi got it? It sounds like more a place for strolling around rather than specific doc landmarks that we want to see like in ocean springs. I said stay there for a couple of nine inch you've got attractions. You have nice restaurants. We haven't mentioned turned attractions yet. So that's why the attractions. Maybe not so much okay. It's a place to go and Shell Out Bay Saint Louis Bright on on their bay which I think is called Saint Louis Bay and then there's a bridge that goes over to Henderson point which is part of pass Christian. I think that's a two and a half Mile Bridge. I walked at less time. I was there. See you could do things like that. It's a relaxing thing. You can walk the bridge. There's a casino or two that are there in in Bay Saint Louis. They have a festival in January. I think actually. It's the second Saturday but the one coming up as Dolly Ali pardoned theme festival. So people coming from all over Mississippi in the United States that are dressed up as Dolly parton right then they ed three to festival I think in November so they do things like it's not your Mardi Gras you're going to get a New Orleans. It's Quirky and fun and authentic as we start to wrap this up. I want to get to some of our wrap up questions. Let's start with your standing in the prettiest spot in the Mississippi. The syfy Gulf coast. Where standing on what are you looking at? That's a great question so I just mentioned walking across the bridge from Saint Louis the Henderson Point. And and that's this hidden gem that I discovered day driving around you go out to the beach at Henderson point phenomenal sunsets. It's an relatively empty beach. There there are scattered houses fourth. But I've been there two or three times for sunset and I've seen less than a handful of people. Well the other question I have for of this area. You mentioned someplace being cool you meant. The vibe was cool not the temperature was cool. When are we gonna go for the best weather? It is Mississippi. So so you know it's GonNa be warm and humid in the summertime but it's the ocean so you're going to get the breezes. I hate to be one of those people that say anytime as rate they'll have some coldest winters but it will not be as cool as inland right. You have a favorite season there personally. The best times to be there when it's seventy five five to eighty five degrees one. Can you predict that. Do you have a favorite time that you like to be in the Gulf coast. I've been there the first week of June in Anaheim sweating my ass off and I love that personally. I love it when it's ninety degrees. And then if you're driving on I ten between mobile and New Orleans you may think this is so stifling obnoxious hell but then you drive five miles south and you could be on the beach and I think that's what most people miss us that you think. You're on this asphalt concrete jungle and you're but you can take the time to the coastal route and it's phenomenally different. Okay a lot of the United States is like that drive on. I ninety five through Florida. Go a few miles to the east. And you're on a going up the coast but but the area so well travelled between mobile and New Orleans on I ten people. Don't take the time to go a little bit down there to coastal Mississippi and they rebranded themselves yourselves last year to call themselves the secret coast. So they're trying to draw more people down there but it really is a secret. I really love it. One thing that makes you laugh and say only in coastal Mississippi. They love their shrimp. They are shrimp crazy. There and our guest has been Charles Beca- from the cool travel L. Dot Com and Charles if we wanted to send people to your best post on coastal Mississippi.

"To exactly you'd be crazy to so go to coastal Mississippi and not have shrimp Scher. It's amazing everywhere. Wasters are fresh from right out there in the GOP. He'll do that but he'll also get the fresh produce and proteins from other places. It's a phenomenal restaurant. And I know the last time I was there. People were coming down from Gumri Alabama and Mobile Phil. Jackson just eat at his restaurants so it was something that impressed me excellent before we go on the old Spanish trail I hadn't lose track of that. The Old Spanish trail wasn't really trail in the time of the Spanish conquistadors. There was no existing trail which I wondered about but this is a trail that links up some of the old all Spanish possessions. And so it goes as you said from Saint Augustine Florida all the way and I think you said Santa Fe and actually goes all the way to San Diego Geico so San Diego. I mean that's coast to coast right there but again not really one that the old Spanish Keke stores would have traveled. There is a Spanish trail trail that they did travel. It goes from Santa Fe down to San Diego that was an existing route but not so much from Saint Augustine. All the way over to this air part the world. Nice couple more things. I'm thinking about for Ocean Springs. One is this get place. I mean when you're going to the south you're thinking biscuits or you should be at least as we mentioned shrimp and grits but biscuits are something that a lot of restaurants have and there's a place called greenhouse on porter and porter is the name of a street street and emotions springs but it's a greenhouse that is an actual greenhouse and. This restaurant has a different sweet and savory very biscuit every day you can literally go there every day and have something different. It's it's really phenomenal. And they just concluded limited every year they do a turnament just like NCAA basketball tournament where they start with sixty four biscuits and every Thursday has day they have a vote and people vote on which biscuits best than last week. They had the final two and selected a winner of their Grand Prize Biscuit Biscuit for the year and what biscuit one for the or do I don't know I don't know I know a friend of mine from the area had her biscuit in the semi finals finals and I think she did so. These are ones that people are submitting. Not just these are the residents. The visitors people people online will submit their recipes. And they make them. I believe every Thursday for ten weeks. They'll have this tournament in. You can go there any day and ordered their sweet and savory biscuit they have craft teas and coffees and things like that but I mean the biscuits are the stars. So that's a place that I really love for breakfast and even launch if you can up a little bit later ocean springs. Is the headquarters of the. I believe it's called hold the Gulf islands. National seashore okay. It's part of the National Park System. So there's there's a string of barrier islands along that part of the golf and so it extends into Florida and I think that skips Alabama so off the coast of Pensacola. There's some I know like. Aw off the coast of Pensacola and Destin. There's part of the Gulf islands national seashore. And then there's some barrier islands in Mississippi and so the headquarters is their notion spring. You could spend days there if you're really into national parks hiking and kayaking and visiting the the visitor percenter and then going out to the barrier islands. So are there regular boat rides that go out to. I see what Deer Island Princeton right off the coast there. And do I go hiking out of the islands or Kayak out to them or how. What is the plan here? They're like five miles offshore. That's right so I. I did go to deer island in October. It was the last ferry three of the of the year. I believe that I was on. I was on a chart but there were people that went out earlier. I believe at ten o'clock they go out and it takes about about an hour to get there and then there's say three o'clock it comes back so you can spend a couple of hours out there pristine beaches gotten beaches on the mainland. Had are really really nice but when you go out there they're different beaches there Christine but also natural. I found a Pelican beak skeleton. If you will less time I was out there so you may not find that on the mainland ages. But out there you don't see the litter and the things like that that you may see on other beaches but you also see things that are coming in from the Gulf because that is the barrier area to the mainland. There are national park shuttles that go out there. There are private boats settled. Take you out there. You can go out there yourself. That artists that I mentioned Walter Anderson. He actually lived on deer island for part of the air so he would go out there on his rowboat for his meditation. Zan in an inspiration for a few months and then he would create are based on his stale there. Well and I said five show dear Allen's only a mile off shore so that in a row boat is a little less daunting absolutely. That can't remember all the names of the island. Deer Island Horn Island Petit Bois island ship island ship island I believe is the one that Walter Anderson Wentao got it with Fort Massachusetts on ship island looks like an Old World War Two award who was Civil War Fort Bragg Fort I believe it was pre civil war and then it was used in the civil war and then it was retrofitted for various wars. We can assume that it wasn't the confederates that built a fort called Fort Massachusetts. You can't assume that absolutely yeah there's a series of forts like dry Tortuga. They're off key west that were built after the war of eighteen twelve to try and protect the US coast. That's exactly what I remember. It was built in the twenties or thirties or even later. But yeah that totally makes sense. One of my last visits there. I stumbled upon my affinity for these live live oak trees that are all over the southern United States. I discovered two places in ocean springs. One is called Rushton. Oak R U S. K. I. N. Ruskin Oak and they believe that is the largest oak or the oldest Dunkin Mississippi outside of the Friendship Oak. which we could talk about later later? But I think it's three hundred and fifty years old and it's on private property but you can walk on Ruskin Street and take a look at it and take pictures and so forth. There is also an area of ocean springs called Lovers Lane and it's dripping with these old hundreds of years old oaks and really nice area. I think even people that go to ocean springs all the time and know about adult know about this law area call lovers lane. So that's what I call one of my hidden gems of of the area. Ken what else we can move on if you want. I'm concerned you know I'll I'll regret not listening everything I can think of an ocean springs in in terms of things to do. I WANNA emphasize a little more things to do. Because we've talked about places deed places to stay and the beach. Are there other things that I'm do doing during the day. The national seashore that I talked about pushing springs is a good place to be. Because you're right across the bridge from Biloxi See. You can their visit their museums and things that do that. We'll talk about later. So if you want to stay in ocean springs zero at your base to go visit Insect Pascagoula in Biloxi. That's worth it to other things to do in ocean springs kayaking the by us. They have a pretty good bicycle all system through town so cut you can either bring your own bike or renovate and explored the Old Spanish trail that we talked about which does parallel L. A.. Lot of their bike trails that they have established. Okay excellent will then you wanted to get us to Biloxi and this is the beginning of the longest beach that you were talking about Dennis correct wreck you must have looked at up a well. I know I was just guessing from the map. There were only certain places that could have been. I believe the beach is man made and I kinda to kill myself that I don't know that it's kind of like Waikiki. Hawaii where it's a man made beach it wasn't there originally but the army corps or someone built this beach and I think it's twenty seven continuous miles up. Sorry that's the longest beach. The longest beach.

"I consider part of festival. It's called Maas point joint. And in Moss point there are some gorgeous hundreds of years old oaks these live oaks that represent at the south to a Lotta people. They're all over this. Little section of town called Maas Point. Let's love driving around there. It's along the Marsh Franz runs and you'll find wonderful. Oh Cowley's and oak trees. I recommend that as a place along the old Spanish trail which I don't know if you've heard of gold Spanish trail trail that goes from from Jacksonville. I believe to Santa Fe. I would recommend maybe spending running a day there and doing some of those things that I just hit upon. There's a lighthouse. That's right at the bridge when you're coming from the West so if you're you were coming from the other part of Coastal Mississippi you'll see a lighthouse. You can climb that certain days and times. I love seeing the different oaks around there. You could do a couple little. It'll scenic drives but some of the towns. We're gonNA talk about later. We'd spend more than one day at but here maybe an overnight maybe the day trip depending on what churned tenor areas where to next as were heading west the next town of significance will hit is called ocean springs and it is simply one of my favorite towns probably in the world. It has a key West vibe that has a Carmel vibe a year from California Key West vibe. I think Party town you say Carmel Vibe. That's a very very different vibe. That's a that's a wine sipping and I love Caramel but slightly pretentious. This is the place where people got in trouble for having ice cream out on the street corners and things. He's like that so real fan there so I don't know how you mix those to me. I'm ECLECTIC key west and Carbel had a baby. It's Ocean sprigs quote me on that. Okay you you've got to explain them with. I mean so. Ocean Springs Mississippi. Oh It's a quintessential southern town. It's very romantic at has a main street called Washington Avenue and it's dripping with those Under- year old. Okay with the little bit of Moss sonnet class. Yeah and so much so that they're cracking the sidewalk. The sidewalks folks are uneven because of the roots of these oak trees. It's a very artistic community. So you'll find art galleries downtown the Anderson Family. He's very prominent in this area. And Walter Anderson was a preeminent artist from the nineteen thirties through the sixties. It's these I believe much so that he hosted William Faulkner and people like that they would come there to do retreats an ocean springs. There's also also his brother Peter Anderson who has a very prominent potter. So it's it's the vibe is very artistic and very festival oriented and when you go across the bridge from ocean springs across the it's called Luxy Bay then you're going to Biloxi and so you got the casinos and the big city. If you will so this is the step sister counterpart to the big city like Carmel. To Monterey or Key West is to Miami that's why you make these parallels you're not gonNA spend a lot of chain restaurants in ocean springs. You'RE GONNA find a lot of fantastic chefs running there on restaurants and things like that. Okay anything else. We're going to do in ocean springs. There's some history I wanNA talk about. Think it was about eight years ago someone found out capone's owns wallet in one of the Pie. Use Ocean springs was her elder Rivera. Possibly someday fishing okay. There's a lot of bridges and by US and things like that and so someone was fishing or crabbing and pulled up Al Capone's wallets so this was won't UNAV- hideouts and you'll do you. Google fact checking but thirties fifties. I don't know exactly. I haven't been nine hundred. Twenty S. Probably During Prohibition Prohibition started did twenty years ago almost to the day is started in twenty twenty and lasted until one thousand nine hundred thirty three that I don't have to Google for uh-huh Al Capone hung out there. There's a an an I don't even want to call it a hotel that it's a twelve room in and it's called the the roost in ocean springs but architectural digest named at the best designed hotel in the South the United States a couple of years ago so when it Elton the phenomenal accolade that it got. But it's the beautiful beautiful. An and the connection to Al Capone is that they have a speakeasy the type bar like a lot of places are having and it's designed with Al Capone murals and themes and so forth. But it's also a phenomenal bar with craft cocktails and so forth like that. So that place is called the roost and I love staying there. That's one of the places are like an ocean springs okay. Another historical throwback is a place called Gulf Hills G. U. L. F. Gulf. It also has a golf course and a conference center. But it's where Elvis hung out in the summers of I believe the years one thousand nine hundred fifty one to fifty seven so every summer Elvis retreated to one hotel and he stayed there for the entire summer with his entourage and I was very fortunate to stay in the suite that he stayed in a couple couple of months ago. And they don't have the rights to use his name so they call it the love me tender. Love me sweet. It's a three bedroom hotel suite and it's on top of the lobby and the registration area at this golf course and hotel and conference centre. saw there are three bedrooms. forbath say wet bar living room and it's all designed with Elvis Memorabilia and pictures of when he stayed stayed there and gold record replicas and things like that so that's a couple of historical things about ocean springs. Also I believe this place Gulf hills was the the site of the Very First Ladies Professional Golf Tournament. I remember reading that somewhere. Okay so I just mentioned to places you could stay so you can stay in love me. Tender love be sweet. You happen to be traveling with an entourage of people stay there. The roost is another great property. And there's two other properties. I really love staying ocean springs and one is rate on Washington Avenue that downtown that I mentioned and it's called the end at Ocean Springs. It's it's a very very small boutique. Hotel they only have two suites. But it's right there in the heart of downtown and one sweet is closer to do the main street of Washington one step back so depending on which we stay on your two steps from the main street or your ten steps apps from the main street but that property elegantly designed then it's actually a sister property of the roost so the same people manage it and they're both very architectural a significant and and popular and romantic all right ocean springs and I would probably recommend someone stay there for two or three nights. The Walter Anderson Museum is right there in downtown on. It's fourteen steps from the end that I talked about and you can go there and see the the works of Walter Anderson to his the artists that I mentioned before and one of the local heroes. It's really a fascinating knitting art museum. visit some of the shops that are along the street. It's probably about a half quarter to a half mile to get to the waterfront front. So when you get the waterfront and you have amazing sunsets and sunrises a couple of outfits in town that will rent kayaks or sopped soon so you can get out on the water and we'll talk about restaurants. Sure one of my favorite restaurants in the United States is called vestige so it's V. E. S. T. I g. g. e. and it's right there and ocean springs. The chef is named Alex Perry P. E. R. R. Y.. And he was nominated last year for a James Beard Award for the chef in the south or southeastern United States. I don't know how they're categories. Exactly he's one of those chefs that really pushes the envelope trying ingredients. He's married to a Japanese woman so he's always bringing an international spices and flavors and things. It's like that and his restaurants been there about five years so he admitted the first years. I'm just surviving and trying to get people to recognize who I am and then in your to your three trying different things. He's like now I'm just GonNa like gotTa do whatever I can to shock people and throw things out there and see what what what's l.. Except so it's truly one of the most innovative places I've been to and in the United States and when you say innovative what kind of the things did you have. That were innovative where you were expecting something. Savory there would be a sweet thing in there or he would be introducing some spices. And you wouldn't wouldn't recognize what it is and you know that he has a Japanese wife and see us so Mike. Oh this is so far eastern Asian spicy like. Oh No. It's something that I from Iran or some Persian spice that he picked up somewhere. You don't expect to find this and the southeastern United States definitely not in Mississippi. Yep So have used ringing flavors and concepts that that are unexpected. No honestly I would say in this region in the world. I expect fried. And and that's a reasonable expectation. Shrimp and grits are something that every restaurant's going to happen. Everyone's going to have a different take on it and it's good.

Amateur traveler talks about seafood and beaches and a Seafood Museum Liam and the world's most expensive waffle house as we go to the Gulf coast of Mississippi and welcome to the amateur traveler. I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Mississippi's Gulf coast. I I like to welcome the show Charles. McColl from McCall Travel Dot Com and Charles's come to talk to us about coastal Mississippi Charles. Welcome mm to the show. Hi Chris how are you today. I'm doing well and we're talking about the state of Mississippi. What is your connection with coastal Mississippi? As a travel writer. I have visited the coastal Mississippi a few times over the past two years and after going there three or four times. I decided that I loved that area and other parts of the US Gulf coast. So much that I developed a new brand called. US Golf coast which covers everything from key. West South Padre but we are talking only about coastal Mississippi debut today so as a travel writer I covered it several times. Excellent and why should someone go to coastal Mississippi. We'll we'll talk about many things but it is is unique. The unique destination the United States. It has the longest continuous beach in the United States. Which I think a lot of people don't know I love road road trips? I travel all over the world. Love driving and there's this sense of soul fulfillment I drive on the Mississippi Gulf coast. I where it's just different than anywhere else. You can drive for an hour and not see anything except for the sand in the water is unobstructed by condos and indulge and restaurants. And what have you so this this great peace and calm and different than anywhere else. Excellent and what kind of itinerary tenorio you're going to recommend for us. It's not a singular destination. There are many communities there. So I'm GonNa recommend some things to do in each of the communities go along the coastal Mississippi. It's all still call the Mississippi Gulf coast. So I'M GONNA use both terms interchangeably. I don't want you to drive fifty miles in one day for lunch and then go drive fifty miles back so I will concentrate on the various communities and say all right first day. You're going to be here second day. You're going to be here and so on and we can do a three four five seven ten very well. Let's get into it where you're GONNA start it. Let's start in Pascagoula. So Mississippi is between Alabama and Louisiana China so coastal Mississippi represents the entire Mississippi Gulf coast so over on the east side closest Alabama Alabama. If you're driving from mobile the first thing you're gonna hit is Pascagoula. The city is probably most famous. because it's where Jimmy Buffett was born. Okay I did not I know that. Yeah so that's going to set the expectations for what the coastal Mississippi areas. All about thank Jimmy Buffett was born there so we're already at our five o'clock somewhere attitude. Pascagoula is also a navy base. So there's a lot of military and also industry the street going on there but it's it's a seafaring community. It's laid-back relative to some of the other cities. We'll talk about. Well what are we going GonNa do in Pascagoula one of the things that happened in past the goal of that as I guess lesser known as that one of the biggest UFO abduction stories in in US history happened there. So back in the seventies the couple of people claim that they were abducted by UFO. And so they were never disproven even so. That's one of the most famous things that happened in Pascagoula. Okay but other than being abducted by aliens. What am I going to do in Pascagoula for won a narrow down here to the the oldest house in Mississippi isn't Pascagoula okay? It's called the lapointe Krebs House and museum now so I went. There are a couple of months ago and I was fascinated by Howell. They showed the construction of how house was done in the bleed was the seventeen. Twenty s house was built the How they use the for the the hair from animals as insulation in the house and things like that kind of interesting Seventeen fifty seven. Is there anything specific renovated the Krebs House. We're going to go to the Krebs House. You could probably spend a couple of hours there. It's a nice waterfront setting and you can get some history of the. The natives that lived in the area and then European settlers came in and saw a whole history of Mississippi but the main point there there's to see the the house and the oldest house in the Mississippi Delta region I think between Minnesota and the Gulf of Mexico. It's the oldest house that's still in the American frontier. I'm thinking New Orleans would be older than that but I mean the city might be but I'm not sure if there's a structure that's older than point good point. The city is older but I don't know if there are any of original houses. Okay Fair enough. But another thing that I really loved in Pascagoula. The Motto Bon Center. I believe the official is the best. Gula River Audubon Bond Center captain McCoy Relation on McColl. And there's a captain McCoy and he runs nature trips out of the Pascagoula River River Audubon Center and what I loved about. It is that I learn things. Obviously like you learn on most trips but the Pascagoula River is the longest. And I'm not going to get the the terminology right. It's the longest une damned river in the continental united in a at states. Yeah so I was fascinated by that and I was like well. What about this wherever they were like now? It was dammed at some point. So the Pascagoula River I believe is four four hundred and eighty miles. That is natural the way it's always been so it hasn't been dammed. It hasn't been obstructed by any kind of construction directions so you can see wildlife and nature the way that it was several hundred years ago. Something didn't expect expect to find in coastal Mississippi or anywhere else and you say wildlife. I'm picturing talking marshes birds alligators that sort of thing. Am I in the right right ballpark. You're right and one thing that that's dominant in this area or the Mississippi sandhill cranes which are relatively large bird. I'm sure there are in other parts that states but there is a sandhill crane refuge that none in Pascagoula but on the other side so I tend cuts through through the area so from mobile bill to New Orleans. You would drive high tech Postal Mississippi. I'm talking about everything. South of I ten okay. North of town the Pascagoula River would go up there. And that's where the sandhill crane. Refuges the birds. No birds don't recognize boundaries. They fly all over the place. So you can see that. I was on the riverboat tour. Okay the AUDUBON center is like most centers they want to promote the natural wildlife and the scenery. And that's so forth and it's a really hidden gem. I think that most people don't recognize will in because it has the name Audubon on it. I'm assuming calmly talking about birdlife predominantly. So yes okay. I don't know if everybody knows. I mean Audubon as a as a charity I think is well known but Google Audubon. You'll find what is James Audubon. Is that the a original one who did all the original drawings of birds in the early. US That's really neat. Watercolors this fascinating realistic catches does right. So I mentioned captain McCoy so you could take his crews out of the audubon center also wrench around Kayak and I did did that one time and going at your own pace around the marshes fascinating at least a dozen gainers and as close they would just scatter into the water. So I love love doing that at my own pace to excellent and John James Audubon. I got it almost John James. Okay when I said early. I didn't realize how early he was. He was born in seventeen eighty five and so he was basically drawing birds up until about the Mexican American war. You're in the US. And so as the frontiers were being filled in a he was out there with his sketch pad. MOM IN ESTA goal. There's obviously the Jimmy Buffett stuff to the native son. A I think he this family left when he was three and then he grew up in mobile but he has come back and he recognizes Pascagoula his birthplace so there is a beach and a bridge and his childhood home are all named for Jimmy Buffett. The parrot heads can go and pay pilgrimage to Jimmy Buffett and go visit some of those sites and one of my favorite places the Pascagoula is called bozos grocery. It's a very old school from the nineteen fifties place where you go in you place your order and you wait inside. been there two or three times. The last time I went kayaking at the river Audubon Center. In fact I got a takeout L. Poboy from Bozo's grocery and then took it on the Kayak. But it's this old school place where you go in and you place your order and you order order off the menu. You don't make up stuff and there was some guy in front of me. That was a visitor and he wasn't a local either and so he went on these. ZAC Oh can I make this substitution. Know what's on the bed. Yeah and I was like basically your choices are you. You get what you WANNA shrimp boat boy. You want poboy poboy being sandwich. A sub someplace else or a hoagie or a hero depending on where you're from but a pavilion in this region of the world. Okay and shrimp being the best known. One that I now. They're also known for their Fried Oysters. Poboy so okay. I got a half in half half. It's amazing I had a couple dozen po boys and along the Gulf coast and I it's one of the better ones side totally recommend going to Bozo groceries to get to take out to go kayaking or he. Dan Excellent anything else that we want to do in Pascagoula or shall we move on Louis Blue. We can move on. There's a section of Pascagoula and I think it may be its own town but.

"That this the notion is related to whether these glue current systems are creating sort of gradients that support what we in meteorology costs Cyclo genesis or the formation formation of cyclones. So an interesting discussion here along the same lines and perhaps Again may not be an area of your expertise but are there any impacts from your Lens of climate change and the loop current system. Well you know that that's always a subject of of great interest but as I say this Relatively little data in the in the deep oceans to be able to to tell whether that that actually is the case I mean we certainly know that the oceans are warming and You know that's something that is true right. It's no but but the question of what that warming is doing and how that affects the loop current at this stage. We don't really know. And I'd like to state the there have been many many good studies on the loop current and but the problem is they have not been sustained. They they you know maybe a study two or three years was done and not sustain what the Academy report that has been recently published published suggests that there should be a ten year campaign so we can really understand the loop the loop forms and and the the timing of it is anywhere from say ten to fourteen months so you don't get many shots over three a period an Anna over ten years you know you might get four or five opportunities to test with measurement what is going on why the loop separates. This isn't important. I you know I want to kind of deviate a bit here from the topic to just talk about science because we're we're to scientists and I think the public coffin may not know the full lens of how science is done and how we achieve and gain knowledge and moved science forward. One way that we do it is through studies and grants and whatnot. What not to scientists at universities and NGOs and perhaps even private corporations but one of the aspects of much of the physical sciences work whether we're talking meteorology oceanography? Your climate is the need for long-term observations. Now Tony for example. I spent a good part of my career before coming to the University of Georgia Reja at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center working on large satellite missions to measure rainfall from space. And one of the reasons we did that as we want it long term trends an rainfall around the globe so we understand changes to the water cycle changes in precipitation intensity and we are now up to a fairly significant sort of record We launched a couple of satellites in nineteen ninety eight and several years later. We're starting the bill that long-term record and I hear you saying that. We need similar. long-term longterm records in the Gulf of Mexico studied the Gulf Gulf loop current which brings me. I guess to your understanding Gulf Systems. Grant Tell us a little bit about this grant. I and I really want to dive into it because your specific grand. This is a system of eight projects. I understand totaling ten point three million dollars but your particular part of the the project addict is a passive Gulf of Mexico loop current observations from high frequency radar. So tell us a little bit about that overarching project and in your specific diffic- research okay so the The understanding the Gulf systems grants which you also known as you Gos- one there were thirty one proposals and they funded eight projects And the whole goal was support research and observation for To improve proved the understanding of the loop and one of the things. That's really interesting. And what we have is about one hundred eighty Radars around the United States. These radars are high frequency. Radars about five megahertz there her They have a transmit antenna and a receive antenna and they basically just bounce a signal off surface waves. They can look at about a hundred and eighty miles one hundred and eighty kilometers. I'm sorry about a hundred and thirty miles and and get information. Nation on current speed and direction one of the interesting aspects of this. Is that in order to expand our ocean observations nations and really understand the loop we need some idea of the current speeds direction excetera on the inflow. That's the water going in between the Yucatan Straight and Cuba and the outflow through the Florida Straits between Florida and and Cuba uh-huh what's called the Cuban Straits but never mind and And so there's been a strategy and my group. We formed into a an association. Called the loop consortium and that consists of Texas am. I Am University Rutgers University Miami University of Southern Mississippi and USF which is University of south. Florida we he put proposals with a similar data system to put radars number one on oil platforms. which is a subject in its own right number? Two two on the Dry Tour tougas in the Florida Straits looking south and then my group would pudding radars radars. A on in Mexico on the place called and Puerta Morales which is in the north life part of the town peninsula and those are going to look across the strait and our hope actually. And we've been working with the Department of Meteorology in. Cuba is to put one radar in Cuba looking west to meet up with the radars in Mexico and another eight hour and Vada looking north to complete a whole program of of Surface measurements in that area We have intentions with rutgers to move all the way down into the Caribbean and then supplement that with a a program of gliders or were underwater drones that we own that that's very interesting. Interestingly those underwater drones we had some colleagues from my university the skidway institute that are using gliders gliders to look at ocean heat content in hurricanes so so we've actually whether listeners should be familiar with the concept of these underwater robotic body gliders. I want to circle back to your radar because I I have some familiarity with radar because Some of my earlier Graduate Training Within Radar Meteorology at Florida state and typically in weather. We use what we call see band or s band radar so they're usually five or ten centimeter radars To sort a probe the the precipitating systems storms etc.. You mentioned that these are fairly high frequency radars. I WanNa Kinda stay. Stay there for a moment just to do a little radar meteorology for the weather geeks listeners. Here so you talked in terms of frequency and I was talking in terms of wavelength but these systems systems are much higher frequency than the types of typical weather. Radars is that correct. Well that's correct. That's why understanding I'm not a A radar expert at any way. I use these tools to Measure currents and.

"He had a lot of credibility, because he was dragging his feet on war. And so President Bush, Vice President Cheney wanted him to be the deliverer of the final message. So he goes and gives his speech at the United Nations by colleagues. Every statement I make today is backed up by sources solid sources. These are not assertions what we're giving you are facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence and says, he's convinced by the evidence. He showing video and photos of mobile, WMD units. He is holding up a vial of something. And in the end since so many people were convinced by this, because this was the person who was wary of going to war. He said this was a blot on his career. It's like the worst mistake he had made some of the information I presented with multi source was wrong. And it is a lot on my record. But you know there's nothing. Thing I can do to change that blot. He presented these images. And we move forward today, and what do we see these undefined fuzzy images? This is the rock solid evidence that Iran is interfering with commerce and the Gulf of Oman. It is absolutely incumbent on every journalist, and everyone to question, what is being presented? And so they just keep on trying, but just the repetition every day, I think, for the American people at exhaust them, and it's, you know, that repetition of the big lie after while you think will there must be something to it, even if any one little bit of evidence isn't enough. I mean this is a catastrophic situation, but as President Trump announces his reelection campaign, there's nothing he thinks I believe that draws country more together. And away from the issues. He doesn't want us to pay attention to then a foreign adversary, and this has been going on for decades, and it's just being ramped up again, you know, it's kind of fascinating to analyze the of Aleutian or devolution, however, you wanna view it of the way journalists and large news organizations handle these situations because you will have on any given day on cable news many, many Democrats politicians, pundits, whatever democratic strategist is, and they're all talking about how we can't trust anything that the Trump administration says, and then you have when it comes to, oh, Israel policy, or certain issues around, Saudi Arabia, or now Iran, where you have very prominent Democrats who claim to believe that Trump is the greatest threat ever to American democracy, who are actively promoting this administration's case for war. And you do see some news organizations, picking up on that and saying, well, yes, you know, Trump is a he's, he's dangerous. But on this issue, it's about our national security. I mean the media obviously is extremely critical of Trump on a number of issues. And I think you should be critical of those in power holding those in power accountable. The reason they found their backbone is because he's directly attacking them, and he has from the beginning of his presidency. You know, the media's the enemy of the American people, he keeps intoning and he names, the news organizations he names journalists and he targets them. And so they're standing up as they should accept when it comes to foreign policy, when President Trump bombed, Syria, you know, you had the networks CNN and MSNBC when he dropped that MOAB the mother of all bombs, and Afghantistan, that was developed by Bush, that was not dropped by Bush or Odom within a few weeks. President Trump is dropping this enough. Ghanistan with no clear reason why. And you have both Brian Williams on MSNBC and freed Zaccaria and CNN. And these cases saying, that's when he became president, I think don't from became president of the United States. I think this was actually a big moment. We see these beautiful pictures at night from the decks of these two US navy vessels in the eastern Mediterranean. I am tempted to quote the great Leonard Cohen, I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons and they cannot diverge from the president, even as they try to protect themselves from him attack. And I would add another issue too, that the issue of the targeting of journalists and journalistic sources. I mean it was like a national scandal when Jim Acosta had his valuable press pass taken away for, you know, some days, and it was just drumbeat coverage of this on CNN..
