Pitcher Plant Symbioses
"You know is a big group, florist speaking Southeast Asia is insanely diverse, but then just even think about it from symbiosis specifically like there's already a laundry list of possibilities in there. So how do you even begin to start to sort through where you can make your mark on the science because as part of it as as like a young eager scientists in trainings to be like, okay. Where do I fit in here? Very. True. Yeah. That that was that was quite a process. The first two possibly even three yet mostly the first two years but Essentially what I did is I took a strategy to to find that niche I, kind of just tried everything. Works but. I will say. I did start wanting to focus on the symbiosis between the plants and the the frogs which marina them. That such, a an unusual niche interaction with barely little known about it. So I I thought of that is oh, that would be a nice place to. State my claim but. There there's a reason why some things are not so while studied. In this case, the interaction is not so common as her interactions with insects. Amazon permits again is is is a key thing. So apparently, there's at least one region insider walk in Malaysia which it's not so uncommon to find it but then getting the permits and work, there is another hassle but. As I mentioned like the the more I read about the group and just seeing I just had so many questions and still. Have so many. Questions A on. The first chapter is not one that I anticipated really. So while I was working on trying to. See if I can find breeding frogs in in Singapore I. Wasn't really getting data on that and but I noticed this color polymorphism of the the the common species there nepenthes. Priscilla's. Added on that. But by first chapter ended up looking into coloration. Fees and. Studying that from evolutionary perspective and then also teasing apart what are the possible adaptive benefits of the differences in Ignatius that you see. So even within a species, there's variation between red and green editors and you could see within any individuals species but that was not a question that I went in with right and that's important to realize is how much of this is informed budgets being out there walking around being curious you know that's part of it to kind of have to enjoy what you're doing and and enough to kind of have that relaxed state of mind as they like. My notice that there but not there that's this color not over here and even on the same individual and it's cool that those can then just creep up into your work and become a big part of it without ever really realizing it. But that's where you know having the passion for the system kind of comes into play because God forbid you sent her on something I didn't want to do that and I should have said that in the meeting kind of thing. But Again. You're in the super bio diverse area. You're studying a group of plants that are super charismatic in also diverse themselves and you mentioned you know these Priscilla's a common species in that area and and as that another limitation to the work to as you mentioned, just finding frogs breeding in pitchers alone is difficult but you don't want to stay your entire PG or really. Any research on an organism, you might find maybe two of in your entire time surging or have to climb repel into all this crazy stuff just get to it So is that a big motivating factor to is just being able to work with species where you can get enough data and ask the kinds of questions to to even start investing the sorts of stuff Yes definitely. and. That's A. That's a nice thing about nepenthes actually. So all although. It's this some exotic species from. Our perspective from coming coming from the West sides difficult. Get there bought once you're there once you're in those places, they're usually locally pretty abundant. You can usually get a lot of plans when when you're in that site. Let's really encouraging in also again, if you're like us, living in the Americas, no experience with any of the tropical pitcher plants outside of maybe botanical garden or a nursery like Oh that must've been a sight for sore eyes just walking into an area that is dominated

William took over the grocery before eventually becoming a librarian for naturalist Joseph. Banks and also opening a bookshop that made Williams Sancho England's first known black bookseller, and since he published some of his father's work as well as than edition of Voltaire he was also England's first known black publisher, William Sancho also worked with Francis crew, who had been one of Ignatius Correspondence on publishing a collection of his father's selected letters after his father's death in crews words, she was motivated by the desire of showing that an untutored. African may possess abilities equal to a European and the still superior motive of wishing to serve his worthy family. Had actually become publicly known for his letter writing while he was still living. Thanks to an exchange of letters with author, laurence, Sterne, a seventeen sixty six letter that Sancho wrote to Stern, and then three letters that stern wrote back to Sancho, were included in the letters of the late, Reverend Laurence Sterne to his most intimate friends that was first published in seventeen, seventy five Sancho. Sancho wrote this letter after reading stearns jobs account of the shortness, then troubles of life, which included a passage about slavery, being a bitter draft, Sanchez letter to Stern, was a little like a fan letter, but it was also a request. I turn to take up the issue of slavery more powerfully in his own writing. We read a bit of this letter earlier in the. The episode beyond what we already read sensual went on to talk about how much he appreciated the character of uncle, toby interest from Shandy before saying quote consider how great a part of our species in all ages down to this have been trodden under the feet of cruel and capricious tyrants, who would neither hear their cries, nor PD. Their distresses consider slavery what it is how? How bitter a draft and how many millions are made to drink of it from their? Sancho went on to say that none of his favorite authors had ever quote drawn a tear in favor of my miserable black brethren, the only exceptions being stern and the author of Sir George Ellison. That's the history of Sir George Ellison which was published in seventeen sixty. Six Sarah Scott. Then Center went on to say quote. I think he will forgive me I. Am sure you will applaud me for beseeching you to give one half hours. Attention to slavery, as it is at this day practiced in our West indies that subject handled in your striking manner with ease, the Yolk, perhaps of many, but if only one gracious God. What a feast to Benevolent Heart Stearns reply to this began quote. There's a strange coincidence Sancho in the little events, as well as in the great ones of this world for I had been writing a tender tale of the sorrows of friendless, poor Negro girl, and my eyes had scarce done smarting with it when your letter of recommendation in behalf. Behalf of so many of brethren and sisters came to me, but why her brethren or yours. Sancho any more than mine stearns, reply went on to say in part quote, but his no uncommon thing, my good Sancho, for one half of the world to use the other half of it like brutes, and then endeavour to make him so for my part I never look westward when I'm in pensive mood at least, but I think of the burdens which are brothers and sisters are. They're carrying Stern's letter to. Sancho was circulated in abolition literature after it was published in the same was true of Sancho zone letters. Sancho also seemed to pattern his own writing style after Stern's interest from. Using lots and lots of dashes and something of a wandering style, there's been some debate among literary critics about whether this was a sort of super fans, fawning mimicry of their favorite author Styler, not Sancho was definitely a huge fan of Stern, even owning a cast of a statue, representing Stern's head, but it can also be Sancho zone, genuine voice, and possibly a written approximation of how he actually spoke these letters that Sancho wrote our candid. Ri- Ironic sometimes a little, suggestive and often self deprecating. Here's an example from a seventeen seventy seven letter to artist and print maker John Hugh who was a clerk on the board of Control. Samsar writes about having been ill. And about how the GOUT and his hand was making even writing painful, and then an ink blot fell on the page. He wrote I. Hope Confound the ink. Now, don't you dare suppose I was in fault. No Sir, the pen was. Called the paper worse, there was a concatenation of sorted chances all coincided to contribute to that fatal blot, which is so disarranged ideas that I must perforce finish before I had half. By head and heart. In some printed editions of sensors, letters the ink. In? Question is is reproduced on the page with this. Some sort of like typeface that they created to be like this is the ink blot character that we will use to print this Levitt. The letters also give glimpses into what it was like to be a black man living in London a seventeen seventy seven letter describes a night out in the hall. Courtesy of Masirah L. quote. If you should happen to know him, you may tell him from me that last night. Three great girls, a boy, and a fat old fellow, were as happy and pleased as a fine evening. Fine Place, good songs, much company and good music could make them heaven and. And Earth how happy. How delighted were the girls? Oh the pleasures of novelty to us. We went by water had a coach home. We're gazed at followed etc, etc, but not much abused centers, criticisms of slavery include a reference to past podcast subject Phillis Wheatley specifically to the fact, that John and Susanna Wheatley continued to enslave her while also helping to Publish her work quote, it reflects nothing either to the glory or generosity of her master, if she is still his slave, except he glories in the low vanity of having in his Watson power a mind animated by heaven, a Genius Superior to himself. This letter was written in Seventeen, seventy eight, at which point Phillis Wheatley had been mandated in seventeen seventy eight letter to Jack Wind Grave Sancho response to earlier letters in which wingrove had described Africans as deceitful Sancho. My good friend, you should remember from whom they learnt those vices before going on to condemn the institution of slavery and England's participation in. Sancho acknowledges that he himself has enjoyed what he called many blessings living in England before describing the nation's conduct as uniformly wicked in the indies and in Guinea. He then goes on to say quote in Africa. The poor wretched natives blessed with the most fertile and luxuriant soil are rendered so much the more miserable for what Providence -ment is a blessing, the Christians abominable traffic for slaves and the horrid. Horrid cruelty and treachery of the petty kings encouraged by their Christian customers who carry them strong liquors to.

"And renowned artists in the eighteenth, century. This happened in bath. Gary came to do a portrait of Lady Elizabeth Montagu. Who Was George and Mary's daughter? Even though Sancho was working as household staff at this point, he is not wearing livery in the portrait, and he's using the hand in the waistcoat pose. That was common in portrait of the upper class in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries today. That portrait is in the collection of the national. Gallery of Canada by the time he was in his forties. Sancho health made difficult for him to continue working in domestic service. He had asthma and Gout, and the gout in particular, became increasingly painful and debilitating, so in seventeen, seventy three, the family gave him a small annuity to help him start a grocery store which he ran and managed with the help of his wife and another example. Example of how eighteenth century England was deeply connected to slavery, the most important products in his stock were tobacco, sugar and tea, all of which were being grown through the use of slave labor. The Grocery was at number, twenty Charles Street in Westminster, and while the building itself is now. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office the shops. Former location is marked with a historical plaque today in addition to selling goods Sancho also made it into something of a literary salon, hosting discussions among prominent writers and musicians, regular visitors may have included formerly enslaved abolitionists about coup Guano, and Olaudah equiano known visitors included aspiring writer George Cumberland politician, Charles James Fox antiquarian Richard Pay night an artist John Hamilton Mortimer. Earlier, the grocery also became something of a tourist attraction with wealthy people, making it a point to shop there because of its proprietor known as the remarkable. Negro and other words Sancho head assimilated into middle class, British society to the point that he was able to have his own shop in his own home all these connections, but he was still definitely an outsider within that society Joseph Jekyll describes the grocery this way quote. A commerce with the muses supported amid the trivial in momentary interruptions of a shop. Shop, the poets were studied, and even imitated with some success to pieces were constructed for the stage, the theory of music was discussed published and dedicated to the princess royal and painting was so much within the circle of Ignatius, Sancho judgment and criticism that mortimer came often to consult him such was the man who species philosophers Adamus have endeavoured to degrade as a deterioration of the human, and such was the man who fuller with a benevolence and quaint of phrase peculiarly, his own account is God's image though. Though cut in Ebony since he owned the grocery store in his home, Sancho was eligible to vote in the British elections, which at the time were open only to male property holders that was of course, a tiny tiny fraction of the British population Sancho voted in seventeen, seventy, four, making him the first black Britain known to do so, and he voted again in seventeen eighty, also in seventeen eighty, he witnessed the anti-catholic Gordon riots something that he wrote about in his letters toward the end of his life. Life these letters were really the primary way that Sancho kept up with his enormous social circle. The decline in his health had made it difficult to impossible him to go visit people in addition to his general correspondents, he also wrote letters to newspapers and to public figures, many of them, advocating for the abolition of slavery, his last letters to friends and family make frequent mentions of illness and pain and visits from Doctors Ignatius Sancho died on December fourteenth seventeen eighty. He was buried at St Margaret's Westminster.

Is being born on a slave ship and seventeen, twenty nine on route from Guinea in West Africa to Cartagena in Colombia. This very earliest moment in his account of Sanchez, life is also the very first thing that seems to be undermined by the actual historical record, because there was not a ship that made that particular voyage in seventeen, twenty nine. For his part in a letter written in seventeen eighty, Sancho described himself as quote born in Africa. That suggested that he was or at least believes that he was born in Africa. Jekyll goes on to say that Sancho was named Ignatius at his baptism, which was performed by the Bishop, but he doesn't really elaborate on what might have prompted a bishop to baptize an enslaved baby according to Jekyll Ignatius his mother died while he was still a baby, and his father took his own life rather than being enslaved. Then when Ignatius was between two and three, his enslavers took him to England and gave him to quote three maiden sisters resident at Greenwich. According to historian and Dinsdale, this may have. Been Elizabeth Susanna and Barbara Leg who lived in Blackie's, which is adjacent to Greenwich that is the right number of sisters and roughly the right location, but this is still conjecture and other conjecture is that the young Ignatius Sancho is depicted in the painting taste in high life bypass podcasts subject William, hogarth. Painting was completed in the seventeen forties, and it satirizes upper class women in their fashion choices seated in a chair on the left side of the canvas in this painting is a black page. The Yale Center for British art describes this identification as this page in the painting as Ignatius Sancho as traditional but implausible. Listen. Everybody's always said it. Really doesn't make any sense. Jekyll also says these three sisters were the ones who gave Ignatius the last name of Sancho, because they thought that he resembled Don. Quixote's Squire Sancho Panza in Spanish. ponza means belly in it stems from the Latin, word for punch. This makes Sanchez name a little bit complicated. It is the name he used his whole life, and later on, he called his daughters his sentas `as, but it was a name that was given to him as an insult, because of his weight Ignatius Sancho described his early years this way in a letter to Laurence Sterne, the author of the life and opinions of Tristram Shandy Gentleman. Quote. The first part of my life was rather unlucky as I was placed in a family who judged ignorance, the best and only security for obedience, a little reading and writing got by unworried application, the latter part of my life has been through God's blessing, truly fortunate having spent it in the service of one of the best and greatest families in the kingdom. My chief pleasure has been books philanthropy I adore the best and greatest family seems to be the House of Montagu beginning with John Second Duke of Montagu. The Duke had previously been governor of Jamaica in one of his residences in England was Montagu House in Blackie's just across from the leg sisters. Earlier in his life, the Duke had reportedly funded the education of Francis Williams and enslaved man from Jamaica although Williams's attendance at Cambridge is not actually documented. The Duke seems to have taken an interest in Sancho, giving him books and encouraging him in his studies, the duke died in seventeen, forty nine, and it seems that sometime after that the three sisters that we mentioned earlier threatened to send Sancho to the Caribbean. Sancho winsome MONTAGUES widow lady Mary Duchess of Montague for help an jackals words when she refused, he quote procured an old pistol for purposes, which has father's people had suggested as familiar, and had sanctified as hereditary in this frame of mind, the futility of remonstrance was obvious at that point. The Duchess hired. Sancho is a Butler and he worked with her until her. Her death in seventeen, fifty one in her will. She bequeathed him seventy pounds along with an annuity of thirty pounds per year fencer. Use this money to try to make his own way in London. He may have tried to career on the stage appearing in Shakespeare's Othello and Africans Orinoco but according to jekyll quote, a defective and incorrigible articulation rendered it abortive. which was a roundabout way of saying he didn't work out with that because he had a speech disorder, Sancho. Tastes outstripped his income in London though this is where jekyll describes his behavior as quote, disposition of African texture, but really none of this seems particularly unusual for a twenty two year old living as a free man with some money of his own for the first time. Time he enjoyed himself with cards and theater and women before realizing that he could not support that kind of lifestyle on his annuity. He once again turned to the House of Montagu. This time George Duke of Montagu and Earl of Cardigan whose wife Mary was the daughter of the late John and Mary Montagu. The details here are a little bit sketchy, but he was most. Most likely employed as Georgia's valette on December Seventeenth Seventeen Fifty Eight Ignatius sancho myriad and Osborne described as a black woman from the West indies. They had at least six children together. William Known as Billy Kitty Fanny Lydia. Mary and Elizabeth known as ELISA. We don't know much at all about an, but we do know from Sanchez letters that she was literate that she had. had a brother named John, and that their two families were close. It's also clear from Sanchez letters that he truly dearly loved his wife and children. Sancho continued to work as part of the Montagu household staff after he got married in seventeen, sixty eight. He had his portrait painted by Thomas Gainsborough. Who is one of Britain's most fashionable.

"W M Z Q in Washington DC, or wherever the rotates you on the iheartradio APP. Welcome to stuff. You missed in history class. A production of iheartradio. Hello and welcome to the podcast I'm Tracy Wilson. I'M HOLLY FRY May. We are going to talk about Ignatius Sancho? Who among a number of other? I was the first black Britain to vote in a parliamentary election that happened in seventeen, seventy four. He became something of a celebrity in eighteenth century, London but documentation of his life. especially, his early life is a little bit spotty today I. We should talk a little bit about the world. That Ignatius Sancho lived in during his lifetime. England's population grew from about six and a half to about seven million people, and somewhere between fifteen, thousand and twenty, thousand of them were black. Most of England's black population lived in cities with two thirds or more living in London, but these are really really approximate. The first British census wasn't conducted until eighteen. O One, so these are definitely estimations. Slavery was legal and practiced in England so some of. Of this population that we're talking about was enslaved many of England's black population work household staff, wealthy people considered it fashionable to have specifically black household help whether enslaved or free one trend was to have black, valid or made who acted as a personal assistant or a travelling companion as well as a conversation piece for other white aristocrats. I said valid instead of Valet because I've been watching a lot of doubt natty. Yeah, that's how you do. of course regardless of whether they were free or enslaved, not every black person in England was doing domestic work. Many were or had been sailors and many former sailors worked as laborers. Laborers or dockworkers, black workers also took industrial jobs in cities, including things like processing and repackaging imported goods like sugar and tobacco, which had been grown in the Americas using slave labor, eighteenth century England was also home to black performers and musicians as well as black music, teachers and composers, although some were recruited or conscripted for things like regimental bands. It wasn't particularly common for black performers to gain access to other white ensembles or white performance spaces, instead many black musicians performed at home, and within an evolving black social scene, and the words of a seventeen sixty four article in the London chronicle quote among the sundry fashionable routes or clubs. Clubs that are held in town that of the blacks or the Negro servants is not the least Wednesday last, no less than fifty seven of them, men and women, Sept Drank and entertain themselves with dancing and music, consisting of violins, French horns and other instruments at a public house in Fleet Street till four in the morning, no whites were allowed to be present for all the performers were all black, while most of England's black population had come or been brought from the Americas, and the Caribbean some had arrived from Africa this included diplomats and dignitaries from African nations and students whose families had sent them to English universities to study. All of this together meant that England's black population in the eighteenth century was predominantly male. It was not uncommon for free black men to marry working class white women. During. Ignatius Sancho is lifetime. England was also the dominant force in the Trans Atlantic slave trade slave ships operated from numerous British ports including London while Ignatius Sancho was alive. The two largest slave poor were Bristol and Liverpool. Of vast amount of British wealth came directly from this trade, and from goods produced in the Caribbean and the Americas using in slave labor. A Movement for the abolition of slavery, and the slave trade started to evolve in Britain during Sanchez lifetime, although formal organizations with this goal, including the sons of Africa were not established until after his death, however, in seventeen seventy two William Murray the first Earl of Mansfield and the Lord Chief, justice, of Britain issued a ruling in the Somerset case, which ruled the enslaved people who escaped enslavement in England could not be captured and return to slavery abroad, although many enslaved people. People living at the time interpreted this as having ended slavery. Entirely, it's real effects were much more limited than that and we talked about this ruling previously in our episode three Astonishing Bells Ignatius Sancho had connections to all of this history, but as we noted, some of the details are spotty. Brief glimpses of his last few years survived. Thanks to some published letters. We're GONNA. Talk about those letters more later, but beyond that his first biographer was Welsh, barrister and politician Joseph. Joseph Jekyll, whose brief account of Sanchez life was published with the letters for the first several printings of these letters, this biography was published anonymously jackals name was finally included in the fifth edition which came out in Eighteen O. Three Joseph Jekyll was born in seventeen. Fifty four, which would have made him about twenty six. When Sancho died in the years after Saint. Joe's death he became a member of parliament in terms of when both men were living jekyll studied at. At Oxford in the late seventies sixties, and was called to the bar at Lincoln's inn in London in Nineteen, seventy eight during those same years Sancho was living and working in London in cleaning the grocery that became a gathering place for writers, musicians and a fashionable place for affluent people to be seen shopping because of the novelty of its black proprietor, so it's definitely within the realm of possibility that these two men did know each other or that they at least met. And, we do have a surviving letter from Sancho son William he wrote to Jekyll to thank him for some service to their family for some corrections. That's his word, and that's probably in reference to footnotes that appear in the eighteen or three edition of Sanchez Letters. So, it's possible. JACKALS, knowledge of Sanchez life came from Sancho himself or from his family, but a lot of what he describes is really impossible to corroborate, and some of it just contradicts documentation that does exist. JEKYLL also doesn't mention some of the most notable parts of Sanchez life, while also including other details that seem pretty improbable, also it's clear that in writing and publishing this biography Jekyll was trying to contradict racist ideas that were used to justify the institution of slavery, instead, showing Sancho as a human, being with innate worse. Here is a quote. He who serve as the extent of intellect to which Ignatius Sancho had attained by self education will perhaps conclude that the perfection of the reasoning faculties does not depend on a peculiar confirmation of the skull or the color of a common. Integra -ment in defiance of that wild opinion, which says a learned writer of these times restraints, the operations of the mind to particular regions, and supposes that a luckless mortal maybe born in a degree of latitude too high or too low for wisdom or for wit so. To add a little explanation to that the learned writer of these times that he references was Samuel Johnson. who was writing about John Milton when he made that comment? And as a side note that eighteen edition of Sanchez letters also included this statement quote Dr Johnson had promised to write the life of Ignatius Sancho which afterwards he neglected to do, and it was accordingly written by Mr. Jekyll in Imitation of Dr Johnson's style. Another words, Joseph Jekyll thought. Ignatius Sancho was notable enough to have been written about by Samuel Johnson regardless of whether Johnson ever specifically said that at the same time, even though Jekyll seems to have.

"Just GonNa have no comment whatsoever on that. That's the question for our lawyers of our PR. People shouldn't take that as a in any way confirming because I'm not I just love our fair enough I actually have one follow up on the flint thing which is kind of more of a thirty thousand foot question and it's a complicated question with. I'm sure accomplish complex set of answers but you think a lot about these things so I'm curious what your view is and that is what you make of these conflicting narratives raised by the Flynn case that on the one hand you have Barack Obama who just said publicly in a story that is broke this audiotape of phone conversation he had the dropping the cases assault on the rule of law and the core values of our of our democracy and then on the other hand so many people on the right and led by the president saying that our system of justice has been essentially poisoned or perverted by dirty cops and the deep state and deep say conspiracies that led to an unjust prosecution of Michael. Flynn I mean. This seems to be the reality that we're living in right now well. I think the FBI and the process of investigation become alternate political. Footballs it's too bad. I I don't know how the FBI recovers in Sushi from from the what is going through right. It's GonNa take very good leadership up. Generally Chris raised seems to to be fighting for telegraphy professionalism over girl but maybe fighting for his job from what we can tell yes. I mean he is job may be at risk but I. I've been impressed by Chris. Raise attempts to play this straight so often in my experience. Fbi directors end up being politicians. You know that they they feel after. Speak to the the gym Komi. That kind of you know citizen Avenger aspect to some of the statements when he spoke out about about the San Bernardino. A iphone issue was very public role. Thought a lot about public relations. Louie Freeh was obviously that way. Stamos J. Edgar Hoover endlessly about the public face of the FBI's public relations. Chris Wray seems to need to be much lower keys trying to protect the bureau. He's trying to keep it focuses mission. You know maybe you should do more public relations. I don't know but I find myself admiring that and it's a welcome change anything something tempting for the FBI. It's so close to politics. It's so easy to play politics now. Isikoff raise the controversy over the speculation that the virus the corona virus may have leaked from Chinese lab the Institute of Virology Wuhan and like the Flynn case like so many other cases these days. This is a an investigation that seems to have become politicized and the right and the left. You can see it now in the papers it was on sixty minutes last night are going at each other over this question you've written about it you've taken it seriously. Not that there is any kind of definitive evidence that it came from the lab but that it is being looked at by the intelligence community and that it is at least plausible. Talk about where you are on that issue right now so for a long time. I thought that the origin story of covert nineteen but we initially hat but it somehow got into the population. Ruhan through this seafood market In Wuhan where people ate all kinds of crazy stuff and they might have eaten something that either had a bad in it or eaten the bat or they're all kinds of stories it basically involved this market where somehow the virus would jumped the back. Krona virus jump species and then injustice an infected human beings and the more. I looked into it. I realized that there were reasons to think that that argument might not be right. That might not be the origin story. There were some anomalous details like the fact that the first people who were infected had no connections that could be established with that markup of some other details that began to surface in Atlanta and other scientific journals and so. I began to look again at what people like Tom? Cotton it and saying God was really Skeptic on some of this early comments I totally inflammatory. I still put they were likening. It took noble implying. That was a deliberate release. There's no evidence whatsoever of that and I think even. Tom Is backed off that at the time I spent with this story. I thought that reasonable people should be agnostic about whether this was an accident the nature whether it just jumped species in nature accidentally or whether it was an accident in a laboratory we know that there were all kinds of background of interest that have been collected in to file logical laboratories in Wuhan wandering near this market one the few kilometers away which is much higher tax supposedly higher higher security and the argument that it might have been a leak from the laboratory. Somebody work in the laboratory not Preston sufficient hygiene at some way being infected waste. That came out of the laboratory. Somehow getting in the trash or in some other way and seven-nation I couldn't find people who really book Caref- carefully at those who didn't think that that was a possibility at the same time the more I asked the more definitive the evidence was that this was not man-made was not bioengineered that part of the crazy conspiracy theory was crazy. It's just there's there's no evidence of that so I ended up thinking and I say this to you listeners. The right thing here. We need to know how to begin. We need to know what the real origin story is. It shouldn't be politicized and be the left versus the right. It should be a factual forensic investigation and the only people who can we do that? Make it happen the Chinese and they should. They should for all sorts of reasons. First we need to know how it happened apart to create the right vaccines part. Make sure it doesn't happen again to understand. How did how did this? How did this horrible outbreak? It's crippled the world get started. The Chinese I think in the end need to show that they're modern and self confident enough to tolerate a real investigation. Their initial response to this was to do a police. State students supress and manipulate information and they were seemed to do that and their own citizens are still angry about it so. I think it's in the Chinese interest certainly in everybody else's interest to have a real investigation that only as possible there's international involvement and oversight and. I don't think that's that that shouldn't be a politically difficult decision at all. Everybody should agree. That's what's needed and people should should join together in that demand and just keep making it. Until China finally response of course inevitably it has become a bit of a political football with some accounts suggesting the trump administration is putting pressure on the intelligence community to confirm the Chinese theory and There's been pushed back on that. And so all I can say to. Our listeners is as this continues and the debate goes on about this the best way to keep track of what is really going on and what the truth is is to read. David's column and if you just want a good read you should check out his novel Paladin. David thanks for joining us. Thanks to you. Mike and Dan folk been journalistic colleagues. You know seems like forever but you're decade. The I guess just the last thing I want to say is that in the end theme of this novel and the theme of our conversation is that serious journalism were retake that role lots of investigation analysis and publishing. What's true at just you know it's a lifeline. People people need it. It's the the the Wuhan Virus Story if people let themselves be manipulated for political reasons. The damage will be lasting. So I WANNA make sure I don't. I don't get pulled into that but you know I had to be corny about it. I still think journalism to save us from some of their nightmares reliving. Well I'll be Corny to the truth and good. Journalism will set US ALL FREE. So thank you so much. David greatly appreciate it. Thanks to Washington Post columnist and novelist.

Explaining the Michael Flynn controversy
"City every thing that we have been saying we're now going on three plus years is now true there is a miscarriage of justice they set up general Flynn we now have hand written notes to prove it where do we stand and your thoughts what we have even more evidence now Sean than we had yesterday we did a new filing at about one o'clock this afternoon with a report from the FBI that completely exonerated planets of January fourth of any sort of Russia problem and repeats in multiple ways that they had checked all the government files on him the FBI files the DA files probably ASCII files all those those two were redacted and found no derogatory information on him whatsoever so then we learned a task a confidential informant against them from the other information I have another that staff and helpers and he's a total slimeball but was running an operation against when I'm probably through the office of net assessment James Baker colonel James Baker in the department of defense with his handler and we think banker that they could not be at the operator but the defense department Baker is the one who had the connection that allowed him to get the transcript of the Kinsley act calls that he then probably leaked to his friend David Ignatius there been recent disclosures of how cozy their relationship was which was inappropriate for more reasons than one and we've just got more and more evidence of the strong page text messages hell struck at the instructions of seven four went back in which means the upper echelon of the FBI Comey and McCabe went back in and kept the following general Flynn from being closed he references their own incompetence and realizing that the file has been closed even though it was supposed to be on so they started all over again and start making up the attempt for the Logan act delegations and set up the interview now as I read these hand written notes and and new information that has come out potential questions for DD's call explain what that is this is from struck that son an email from strong before McCabe is going to place the call to swing on the day of the interview that Comey was talking and bragging about his little speech on national January twenty fourth four days into the trump administration and McCabe now general Flynn it's been widely reported ask or do I need a lawyer anything in Andrew McCabe lied to him did he not and deny him his Miranda rights well actually technically Maranda doesn't apply in the non custodial setting but what they always do is at least mention of one thousand one possibility the false statement possibility and what that means that they have plans and schemes by other information we have not even do that with general Flynn there emails yesterday produced that recommended that they do that and note that they always do that at least mention it in an interview and they decided here because it was planned not to mention it at all they schemes and plans and met at length about it to decide to keep him relaxed and unguarded and then I would not have their and what wouldn't a White House council of as well what is the nature of this then again improper process was and protocol what is the nature of the discussion with general Flynn and if they had the Telemus about an investigation into planned and Russia well that point the White House counsel would say will red flags general Flynn they probably would have told you probably need a lawyer that would have happened now in that and then these other you know hand written notes what is our goal now why would any FBI agent ever have to ask the question because the goal should be truth the goal should be justice they say then it goes on truth admission R. or to get him to lie get him we're trying to get him to do something or and then it's so so we can then prosecute him or get him fired well that sounds like a perjury trap but I'm not the smart lawyer that you are Sydney about one that was obviously written obviously their goal and that's even more apparent in the text messages of Strzok and page and others that came out in the production today where they also talk about using a defensive briefing as a pretext to talk to him they're trying to figure out a way to talk to him in such a way that he doesn't know he's being interviewed so they could try to trap him or make something up against him and they wound up having to just make it up and we learn more in today's production also about how Mr Strzok did massive added to the original agents three oh two and was trying very hard to keep that other agents employees in the report despite his significant changes to it and was talking to Lisa page about that she was fussing with him that helps lobbyists work was on it all right I'm I want to get John Solomon here in here in a second but Sydney what we now knows that this was a set up that they knew ahead of time that they had put this case to rest they resurrected it for political purposes we know even earlier and and the attorney general's confirm this that in fact when we've confirmed it that it was premeditated fraud on the FISA court because they will warn John Solomon will address this in a minute and that is they will warn that the dirty dossier that Hillary paid for should not be trusted it was political in nature it's unverified and my and that Christopher Steele has an agenda numerous times but they took the unverified later we find out unverifiable odd dirty Russian dossier that even apparently the Russians knew was going to Hillary Clinton which brings up a whole new story likely Russian disinformation even The New York toilet paper times got that was used as the foundation for all four FISA warrants totally debunked at this point they never even tried to verify it and then they took away Carter page's civil liberties and constitutional rights they spied on a candidate a transition team and deep into the presidency of Donald Trump those last words are Attorney General bars are and then we have other issues involving helper and Joseph miss foot in Brandon and and clapper which I assume at some point will be addressed to hear Sydney but here's what happened they denied that we now know that general Flynn is even a bigger hero don't week that what we have been saying on this program and thank god for you because you've got the crap beat out of you all a lot you work your your you know what off offered no money for the most part pro bono and donations from generous people thank god because this guy went bankrupt and he fell on the sword to save his son is not true Sidney Powell yes yes the generosity of the American people has kept our litigation going in his defense and we've learned that there was a secret side deal of course but generally they have promised not to indict his son but the judge didn't know it and we found documentary evidence only recently that Covington and Burling as per our lawyers and the prosecutor Mr van crack it made this a secret side deal deliberately to avoid that Mr Bannon cracks obligation to produce that exculpatory or impeachment information to any future defendant that they wanted general Flynn to testify against so it was another example of them cracked deliberately trying to hide the ball of exculpatory evidence and believe that the same time we on at the same time the judge did not note that the plea was coerced at and the plea was course because they said well we didn't think ally but you're going to admit to lying rose we're going after your son which that is prosecutorial abuse to I don't want to keep John Solomon out of this discussion John you've brought amazing work here and you have a lot of updates we have to listen today's documents that should be forced into the public I think really bring to light the deliberate nature of what was going on here the normal process for the F. B. I. was taking its course they looked at general plan they decided he wasn't a Russian asset he posed no threat he should be okay to be the national security adviser and then this is a more right from their notes the seventh floor of the FBI got involved the seven floors James Comey and Andrew McCabe and they stop the closure of the files the they were gonna treats when the right way and just give me a defensive briefing I move on and they put a stop to it and then they can talk this interview and you
Saints of Spain; David Suchet Footsteps of St. Paul; Michelangelo In Florence
"Whether you're looking at Michelangelo's magnificent statue of David or you get caught up in a ruckus crowd at a street festival in Spain or even if you just listen to the wind whisper. What life was once like among the sun bleached ruins of the Mediterranean? Your travels can lift your spirit in many ways. Hi I'm Rick Steves in just a bit. We'll take a closer look at the world. Michelangelo lived in influence. Five hundred years ago and actor. David Suchet tells us how he retraced the route that Saint Paul traveled through the eastern Roman Empire. Nearly two thousand years ago. Let's start the hour with a look at how people in Spain honor the lives of important figures from their past. There are actually hundreds of national and regional saints in Spain. And you'll find that many of them get a festival that brings their communities out into the streets to celebrate to explain the role of Saint in the culture of Spain. We're joined now by tour guides or hate Roman from Madrid and Francisco Gloria from pump. Lona or Hey in Francisco. Happy Easter Thank. You thank you so. Spain is a Catholic country in in the church is a huge part of the political and spiritual past. To what extent is the Catholic Church? Still a big part of Spanish society. Today it is. I mean now. The government that we have now is very conservative and they relates a political issues with the church. Not Everybody is happy about that but still part of it and also the most of the celebrations in Spain national holidays. They advocated saints. Lady's name names. I think a lot how. How does the naming of children work compared to the Catholic faith? I mean you're or hey your Cisco do they have any with your parents. Passion for Saints a Whole Mike. As many Ms Francis Xavier because your middle name is executive because for some frantic savior was born in my town so and he was the first Jesuit Right. He was one of the founders of Jesuits Yep okay main signatures which is a very common name. Ignatius and Francisco Xavier. That's a common name where you come from pump loan and actually my name is the ACLU into English degeorge and is the only saint in the Catholic Church actually wasn't a saint also warrior that killed the Dragon Saint George killing the Dragon. Yeah it wasn't saying actually but so there are a lot of festivals when you travel in and almost all of them seem to be related to the church. Talk about a couple of the the great festivals in the Saints Days. That are important in your life in your travels Francisco I am from component the running of the Bulls on what we celebrate. The death of Seinfeld mean so. It's like huge huge celebration. That week starts July six hundred ends July fourteenth saint for me and I. You wouldn't even know who saint for me unless you went to. The running of the Bulls and pump. Lana developed comes from employees. They don't even know who he is attacked because everybody wears the red Kerchief around their neck and when people go to the running of the Bulls they wear this red neckerchiefs symbolism planet. We are under two hundred thousand people. I didn't know we. We welcome one million people and everybody's wearing white unread and nobody knows why like. Excuse me you do get excuse me. I'M A tour guide. I want to explain to you why. You're wearing this red handkerchief. That was the first person that was baptized employees and they cut his head for the recent. So what we represent the white outfit Represents Holiness and the Redmond nights the blood coming out of his neck so he was an early Christian. Pump Loner who was beheaded. Yes he was. We hit it. We say that he was beheaded any Pamplona although history tells us that he was beheaded in France. But Hey ho hey. From Madrid what festivals would impact a traveler when that we should know about quite Madrid? Not Maniacs you say but there is one very close which is Toledo the Corpus Christi is the big the there in Corpus Christi in Toledo is and that's the the corporate the body the body of Christ that's correct. Yeah and that's the Big Day in Toledo and they do bring some things to parade around. And he's part of a could be the equivalent of the beaches. Pelton SPAIN LIKELY. You have here states them. They're very conservative in there. That's interesting because in the United States We've got a region called the Bible Belt in Spain. Is there a region that would be the Bible belt get could be the political? Be One of them if you go around. Let's say like half Mouche from Madrid to the West from Madrid to the West Toledo Arbella. Salunke that part of your Browning what do you? What is your image of being? We'll have to think that we had the Muslim heritage Muslim heritage started to come down of it from the north down. Thanks Community Santos on James. Drake has just for the historic context. The Muslims came in and took over Spain and Portugal in from the eighth century until fourteen. Ninety two a good part of Spain was ruled by Muslim overlords. And then for centuries there was the RECON keystone reconquering has finally fourteen ninety two. The last Muslim was pushed out of Granada and back into Africa. What I make the difference that the Community Santiago okay. The origin was by the coast and it was the beginning of the Spanish reconquista. So this is the Camino Santiago. This is the big pilgrimage trail that cuts across from France all the way across north Spain the major city in the north west of Spain Santiago de Compostela. They'll go and How what's the historical roots for this pilgrimage? Because thousands and thousands of people make this high out there still do it people at the beginning they did it by the coast so those kingdoms those ancient kingdoms there the realize that whatever was going there were no Muslims so th would they decided to push it south and south and south and south until the Camino we know today so I am from the north in the north we barely have any Muslim heritage. We were more Christine. Must time before. But if you go down to under Lucia there you find. Churches generally built upon a mosque. Correct and mosque was built upon a church than they destroyed. If you go to civilian you see them at Nickerson Tarver. A Cathedral Tower actually was the minaret of the old mosque. So there's this layering of history. And what's very poignant to me? Is We hear about people. Being beheaded today in this struggle of fanatic Islam and Christians and so on but if you go to a church in southern Spain it's very common to see a man on a horse with a big sword cutting off the heads of Muslims and at the feet of the Horse. There's six or eight heads of beheaded Muslims as correct. Lose this man that is son James. The son teams we're representing three ways bishop as more slayer the more slayer so his. His nickname was saint. James the slater the more killer. Well enter the Moore's for the Muslims. Yeah most of our lives and today's politically incorrect. So we're beginning to cover those heads on the floor seriously. Some of those old statues and paintings are getting with put flowers well enough so you hide them so you hide you see a guy on a white horse with a sore but every time a Christian is just so disgusted by a Muslim fanatic. That cut off one of his people's heads we've got to remember. This is nothing new in history Spanish. I consider myself Catholic. We've been the worst ever I mean. We've inquisition the request. We have expelled. The Jews I mean with excuse of religion with Don's much bad. The inquisition is Sort of gift of Spain to the rest of Europe. What gave yeah. I poisoned gift. Would you describe the The inquisition you see the palace don't you out l. escorial that's right correct. What is the inquisition? Mean to to church history It's a sad episode. I mean this might personal opinion. Very site I mean also gave us practical thing. But it's a very very sad history. Every time I talk to them to my travelers about inquisition unites ties with Catholic moral and they kept going on.
The Hill criticizes, but does not recant, Solomon articles
"You broke the news that the user but Chris Murphy and other democratic senators met with Zarif the foreign minister of Iran yes and that was my story that we published the federalist on Monday and I tried to get comments from European the other people and should be in there and they declined to comment but one secretary of state my coupon Hey addressed the meeting which had been not approved by the state department then finally Murphy admitted that he had taken part in a secret meeting in the hotel room of the three and that he's done it actually before too and mostly what I find interesting about this is that Murphy isn't as extreme critic of legitimate our conversations with people who are leaders of other countries so for instance when my claim the incoming national security adviser had a conversation intending to de escalate the situation with Russia with the ambassador from Russia Hey kids we act of mercy thought that it was treasonous says with a legal that it definitely needs to be investigated that it was a Logan act violation this is the view also shared by The Washington Post you might remember David Ignatius received that leak about the kids react on call and put out an article about how it is legitimate to think this was the Logan act violation the department justice pursued Logan act violations that happened with the pretext they used to go interview Flynn you know and when was the incoming national security adviser to doing exactly what you should have been and in fact she's been doing with more people were as Murphy is a strong opponent of our current policy toward Iran he has some questionable ties to redeem undead or supported groups and he was publicly opposing our policy the same day that he had this meeting and yet he wants to say that what he did was perfectly fine I'm I'm sure I'm speechless because it's so obviously inconsistent hi is anybody coaling Murphy out on this and were there other senators present the others who were reported to be there any information kinda came because other European countries knew about this meeting even though the United States did not in the state let's not talk about it but some of them are other you know senators were there like men that van Hollen is reported to be trying to get into the meeting on the th and clear if he actually make it into the meeting or not but also reported to be John Kerry who has previously had such woke interactions with Iranian regime leaders and Murphy's defense of what he did with that he sits on the foreign affairs committee he's a senator Hughes and a co equal branch of government he has the right to do this well that wouldn't explain John Kerry being there and so while he was somewhat transparent or claim to be transparent about what they talked about he hasn't been transparent about who else is participating and so we definitely need to know more about well established events that it's a co equal branch of government does that negate the login law violation well first off you know there's a difference in being co equal branch of government and doing your own foreign policy don't lie in the states so I'm asking is is settled is it a an illegitimate defense then well I don't personally believe the Logan act is constitutional that new point was not shared by Obama department of justice or Sally eight Sir James yeah but for general Flynn a great great American all right ruined by on the basis of this right and so if you're going to enforce the login after use it as a pretext to investigate and destroy someone's life and bankrupt them and threatened with prison I don't see why it's okay to do it to Mike Flynn who actually got a legitimate function in right talking with his Russian counterpart but not to use against Murphy who's actually got some pretty problematic attachments with the Iranian regime and sent me water his problematic attachments he'd like to speak it the group then Nyack the national Iranian American council which is forty funded by Iranian regime leaders and started by so we can sell and it was very supportive of the Iranian regime and he was very upset you might remember when senator Tom cotton wrote a public open letter nothing secretive about it at all to the leaders of the other lines encouraging them not to do the G. C. P. O. a with with a bomb and reminding them that you know if it weren't ratified by the Senate with people work much he was so upset about that so they just it's very interesting what Murphy gets upset about and when he does
Evel Knievel: Ramping Up To Glory
"Knievel Oh is one of the most iconic names of the twentieth century. There's a reason that people are still being compared to him nearly forty years after his last jump he rubbed elbows with Hollywood's greatest performed stunts. No one thought were possible. And pioneered the whole subject of stunting known as action sports which has blossomed into a multi multi billion dollar industry. Pretty much all of my favorite people of my childhood odor career to able able. Yeah I think we should preface this by saying most of our sources were just documentaries because there's a million documentaries on him The biggest one being being evil By Dick House House productions who did jackass a really good documentary She go check it out. After this absolutely I watched last night it is really good. Check it out on or wherever you can find it all right so Knievel performed over seventy five motorcycle jumps over his career. Most most of which were successful. Some were catastrophically unsuccessful. Many were on bikes. That weighed close to five hundred pounds. Most of the CAR Harley Davidsons. Yeah he loved Harley he he had a triumph Bonneville He actually started selling Honda motorcycles. which will get into? But I think that's crazy because Jeff I mean Jeremiah's motorcycle rider and he's like yeah it's like like motorcross jump. Bikes are like two hundred. Two hundred twenty pounds. He's jumping bike. That's three hundred pounds more than that. What's an an animal that was five hundred pounds grill? It's like jumping a hundred Yeah so these motorcycles are flat track bikes. That were. We're not designed to jump. As Joe said he also broke many many bones in his body and spent a lot of time in the hospital and against all odds he lived to a He lived to sixty nine years old. Nice Nice Nice for more impressive than his death. Defying stunts was eagles ability to act as his own promoter. Heitmann and publicist He knew how to pump up the drama and get the crowd on their feet I think that's my favorite part out of the documentary. I didn't know that evil was. He's like a handsome guy he's super now and just so confident like oozing confidence in every interview he does I. I guess it makes sense that he was so good at that. Because I mean you got I think if you have the mindset of like hey I'm going to jump over thirteen buses or whatever you also have to the confidence and be like I'm GonNa tell people who watch my stuff but like I don't know like you you talk to like race car drivers today. They're definitely there's only a few that only a few that can talk at all. Yeah EXAC- nerd. Best Friends with her dad. So it was very interesting seeing Mister Knievel and Action Green Anaconda by the way five hundred pounds. Wow which surprised me more because I. That's a big thing that makes a big meat tube. Evils Charisma inspired a new generation of stunt people around the world. He was a natural showman. con artist and outlaw. But he wasn't always evil He was born Robert. Craig Knievel on October thirteenth. Nineteen thirty in Butte Montana. Butte at the time was a small rough town known for the two things mindful of copper and bars full of miners. Robert's parents Robert Senior and an knievel gave birth to his brother. Nick a year later. Then They divorced soon after his mother moved to Reno and his father moved to California leaving Robert in Nick in the hands of their grandparents day says reading more round Butte and there is like three thirty thousand people in the town but there are three thousand prostitutes will serve all the miners so literally one tenth of the population was prostitutes. That means ten guys. We're doing the same Gal. Well Ignatius and Ama- knievel. His grandparents showered the kids with love and affection. Filling in a much-needed Ignatius We haven't Ignatius at donut. Then we haven't Agnosio. Yeah but like that's that's kind of a Sam his grandparents bought the boys Bicycles and toys and took in the fairs when Robert was eight Ignatius. Emma took him in his brother to a daredevil show. That would forever change his life from that point on the Joey Chitwood thrill show was a traveling. Extravaganza sends like a rockabilly band. Joey Chitwood Joe. Joey Joey Chitwood trill show played at the fair there. I'm surprised he didn't have his own signature. peachy cours So this extravaganza that featured stunt driver Joey Chitwood J. Turns and driving on two wheels and what amounted amounted to be a giant commercial for Chevrolet What really interested Young Kyu knievel? was the motorcycle stunts. Riders would smash new flaming boards at high speeds. They do we lease and jumped through flaming hoops. This show sparks something in Robert. In his words I would go home and take defenders of my bicycle and put clothes pins in cards so it sound like motorcycle. That was the start of his lifelong obsession with motorcycles. And
"ignatius" Discussed on Catholic Culture Audiobooks
"Ignatius the afforest to the Church of God the father and of the beloved. Jesus Christ which is at smear not in Asia. I wish you every joy in an unblemished spirit and the word of God your church has been mercifully. Blessed with every gift and his lacking and none it has been filled with faith and charity it is most worthy of God and fruitful route foil in holiness I Give Glory to Jesus Christ the God who has imbued you with such wisdom. I am well aware that you have been made perfect unwavering. Faith like men nailed in body and spirit to the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ and confirmed in love by the blood of Christ in regard to our Lord. You are thoroughly convinced that he was of the race of David. According to the flesh and the son of God by his will and power that he was truly born of the Virgin and baptized by John in order that all due observance might be fulfilled by him that in his body he was truly nailed to the cross for our sake under punches pilot and Herod the truck of his most blessed passion. We are the fruit so that through his resurrection he might raise for all ages in the one body of his church. A standard for the saints in the faithful whether among Jews or gentiles for he'd suffered all these things for us that we might be saved and he suffered truly and just as truly raised himself from the dead he did not suffer merely in appearance appearance as some of the unbelievers say they themselves being merely an appearance for it will be their fate in accordance with their faith to be body less and ghost like as for me. I know that even after his resurrection he was in the flesh. And I believe this to be drew for when he came to those who were with Peter he said to them take hold on me and handle me and see that I am not a spirit without a body and as soon as they touched him and felt his flesh and pulse they believed it is for this reason that they despised death and even showed themselves superior to death after his resurrection he ate and drank with them like anyone else with the body although in his spirit he was one with the father. Although I know you believe believe these things to be so dearly beloved. I'm worn you. I am for arming. You against wild beasts in the shape of men if possible you. You should not so much as meet them. Let alone welcome them. However you must pray for them so that difficult as this is they may somehow repent this possible for Jesus Christ who is our true life if the things he did were done by our Lord Merely in appearance then I am in chains merely an appearance? And why then did I give myself up to death to fire to the sword to the wild beasts. It's the fact is near the sword near to God among the beasts along with God provided only that what in the name of Jesus Christ I suffer along with him I endure all for. He who is perfect man is my strength. There are some who deny him because they do not know him or rather. They are denied by him because they are more in favor of death than of truth. These men have been persuaded neither by the prophecies nor the law of Moses nor at least so far by the Gospel nor by the sufferings of any one of us in particular for they think of us as they think of him in any case. What is the use of a man thinking well of me if he speaks ill all of my Lord by denying that he had body anyone who denies this denies him altogether and is himself dead? I do not not think it right for me to set down the names of such men so long as they are unbelievers. Indeed I trust that I shall not so much as cold them to mind until they returned to faith in the passion. Which is our resurrection? Let no man be deceived. Judgment will be meted out even into heavenly beings to the glorious angels into principalities visible or invisible if they do not believe in the blood of Christ he that can take let him take it. Let no one's position puff him up for faith and charity are all in all and nothing is to be preferred to them. Consider how contrary to the mind of God or the Heterodox in regard to the grace of God which has come to us. They have no regard for charity nun. On for the widow the orphan the oppressed none for the man in prison. The hungry or the thirsty. They abstain from the Eucharist and from prayer because they do not admit that the Eucharist is the flesh of our saviour. Jesus Christ the flesh which suffered for our sins and which the father in his graciousness raised from the dead and so denying the Gift of God these men perish in their disputatious. Nece it were better for them to love and so to arise again. It is well for you to keep away from such persons and not even to speak of them in private or in public it is better to keep to the prophets fits and especially to the Gospel in which the passion is presented and the resurrection is an accomplished fact. Shun schisms as the a source of troubles. Little follow the Bishop as Jesus Christ did the father and the priests as he would the apostles reverence the deacons as he would would the command of God apart from the Bishop. Let no one perform any of the functions that pertain to the church. Let that Eucharist beheld valid. Which is offered offered by the Bishop or by one to whom the Bishop has committed this charge wherever the bishop appears there? Let the people be as wherever. Jesus Christ Christ is. There is the Catholic Church it is not lawful to baptize or give communion without the consent of the Bishop on on the other hand. Whatever has his approval is pleasing to God? Thus whatever you do will be safe and valid. It will be well. Oh for us from now on to return to sobriety to set our minds on God while still there is time it is good to acknowledge God and the Bishop a man who honors the Bishop is certainly honored by God. A man who acts without the knowledge of the Bishop is serving the devil and so may all by grace abound among you as you deserve. You have been consolation to me in every way. May Jesus Christ be the same to you. Whether I was with you or away. You loved me. May God repay you. You will be with with him one day. If you will but bear all things for his sake it was good of you to welcome Filo and riots Gotha Piss as deacons of God for they followed me for the sake of God they give thanks to the Lord for you in return for the manifold constellation. You give them nothing. Nothing you gave is lost to you. I offer up my life for you and also my bonds which you did not despise nor were you ashamed of them neither will Jesus. Christ who is fidelity itself. Be Ashamed of you. Your prayer has reached as far as the church in Antioch Keok of Syria to which however unworthily for I am the least among them. I belong I come from there in chains which are pleasing into God and I salute you all by the divine will. It has been vouchsafed to me that through your prayer I might reach God. This is not through any merit of mine. But by the grace of God and I pray that the final grace may be given me if you would have your work doc. Perfect in heaven and owners. You should have your church. Appoint for the honor of God Ambassador of God to go to Syria to congratulate them for being in peace after returning to their proper size and after having had restored to them their corporate character. It seemed to me a deed that is worthy of you to send some. I am one from among you with a letter. So that he might join with them in giving glory for the calm which has come upon them from God and for the fact that with your prayers they they have reached the harbour. Your perfection calls on you for perfect resolutions. If only you are ready to do good. God will be ready ready to help you to do it. The love of the brethren who are at throw as salutes you. I am writing from here by the hand of Burruss Whom you and your brethren from emphasis sent to accompany me burress has consoled me in ever so many ways?

"ignatius" Discussed on Way of the Fathers with Mike Aquilina
"Fourth episode. And we're still in the very earliest years of Christian history. We're still discussing. The generation known as the EPA Stolac Fathers those ancient authors whose lives overlapped with the lives of the apostles. Now you can choose to disbelieve. What I'm about to say if you like but I actually often get asked if I have favoured church father that probably probably tells you all you need to know about my social circles but it's true people do ask and most of the time I answer with the name of the man? We're going to discuss us today. Ignatius of Antioch. I love him because of his warmth and passion. Sometimes when we read texts from long ago it can be hard. The tune in the author's concerns are so different from our own their living conditions technology their culture their laws. All these are so alien as to be almost unimaginable. Sympathy requires an aerobic effort on the part of the reader yet. That's not the case with Ignatius of Antioch some of his concerns. These are peculiar to his time. But we easily overcome the distance because of his deep humanity and deeper faith in Jesus Christ these qualities polities enable him to transcend his circumstances and they empower us to transcend ours as we read. Almost everything we know about. Ignatius is what we read in his seven letters that have survived. They come with built in drama. Ignatius wrote all seven as he travelled halfway across the known world aware at every step that he would die at the end of his journey. But we're getting too far ahead. Let's begin at his point of departure. Let's go back to Antioch Doc. Today the city of Takia is in south central Turkey in the first century. When Ignatius flourished the city was the capital of the Roman province of Syria? Syria Antioch was one of the greatest cities in the world. It was a lively place cosmopolitan a bustling center of commerce and culture and a military site of strategic importance. It was the first major city to have boulevards illuminated at night by streetlamps it had a vibrant Jewish community with a variety the of synagogues the Jews Antioch had for many years participated actively in the city's intellectual and civic life the Jewish historian Josephus Asifa called Antioch the Third City in the habitable earth. Both in magnitude and marks of prosperity the only cities greater were Rome and end Alexandria. We learned from the acts of the apostles that in Antioch the followers of Jesus were I called by the name Christian so you can see that the city itself gave an aura of prestige to its prominent citizens. If you could make it there you'd make it anywhere. Ignatius was the third Christian Christian Bishop of Antioch the Second Successor to the Apostle Peter himself. According to ancient tradition. He was personally called and chosen by the fishermen tournament. He must have been an exceptional leader but unfortunately we know nothing at all about his years in the chair. Antioch for us. His story begins when he was. It denounced as a Christian. The legal precedent for Christian persecution was firmly established in the middle of the first century in sixty four AD. The emperor are a narrow arrested Christians on bogus charges of arson. But he knew that those charges wouldn't hold up in court so we had. The Christians tried for a crime called hatred trid of humanity. They were haters he said and they were found guilty of that. Nero had them put to death in spectacular ways and for centuries afterward that precedent could be invoked to justify both empire wide holocausts and local crumbs. It seems that as the first century turn into the second the officials in Antioch had grown weary of Christian activity and from this we might conclude that the church was enjoying spectacular success in Antioch Doc as we study the ancient world will notice again and again that pagan persecution was received by Christians. As the sincerest form of flattery. It meant meant they were attracting xactly the kind of attention their master had received. We don't know the circumstances that led to the arrest of Ignatius. We don't Oh who denounced him. He must have known but he doesn't seem to care in his letters he shows no bitterness about his predicament. His only regret about about the ordeal is that it left the Christian family in Antioch Without a father they had no bishop from the beginning. However there's something strange about the criminal? All case of Ignatius. He was accused tried and found guilty in Antioch and he was sentenced to death but he was sentenced to be executed. Not Not in Antioch but in Rome the capital city of the empire now in the Roman world as in our own men and women who received the death penalty were usually executed in the place where they had committed their crimes in Ignatius. We have an unusual case of a condemned man transported a long way by Landon. I didn't see in the company of a military escort. This was a very costly enterprise. Historians have reasonably asked why why does the execution of Ignatius appear to be such a procedural anomaly. For my part I think the Roman officials either in Antioch or in the imperial capital recognize the deterrent value of a high profile victim. Ignatius was a celebrity the bishop of an important city a man with connections to the apostles else. Wouldn't it be ideal if he were to die. In some gruesome public way before the astonished gaze of a sellout crowd in the Flavian amphitheater Empha- theater in Rome and as he made his way from Antioch to Rome. Wouldn't it be grand to put him on display at each city along the way he was a prize fries catch and he could serve as a warning to all the Christians along the Anatolian route. Return to the religion of your ancestors. You Fools Zor you'll end up like Ignatius. This is speculation of course but I think it's reasonable to believe that the Romans who traffic in fear would seize an opportunity like this one one and make the most of it but I also imagine that Ignatius was as savvy as his captors and that he also knew how to make the most of these opportunities. We do know that the Christian churches along the way sent groups out to greet Ignatius and encourage them Ignatius refers to these emissaries and his letters he even names the individuals who visited him he used the stops also as an occasion to write letters to the churches. Along the way he wrote letters to the Churches Churches in Corinth Ephesus Philadelphia Trolleybus SMYRNA and Magnesia. He wrote another letter to an individual. Who knew a young bishop named named Polycarp of SMYRNA taken together these letters give us the most detailed record? We have of church life in one seven. Ad Ignatius shares. There's some concerns with his contemporary Clement of Rome the Apostolic Father We encountered in our last episode like Clement Ignatius Wanted Order and unity unity to prevail in the Church but Ignatius was anxious about a different kind of disorder. Clement was contending against rebellion the uprising of Laity against against the Clergy Ignatius however focused his arguments against heresy there were two heretical tendencies. That were fracturing Christian congregations in Ignatius as world in one seven eighty one was called doe citizen and his followers believed that Jesus was not really human he just seemed seemed to be human the heresy takes its name from the Greek word for seeming. The DOSA tests believed that Jesus was truly divine but they also I believe that suffering and death were beneath the dignity of a God. The apostles themselves had encountered this error and we find it rejected in the New Testament in the first and second letters of Saint. John There the apostle says that anyone who will not acknowledge the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh is the deceiver deceiver and the Anti Christ. The flesh of Jesus was supremely important John as in time it was to Ignatius Dosa. Tim One was one strain of heresy and Judaizing was the other judy. Izing was the insistence that Christians must observe the whole of the Old Testament law in the previous generation. Saint Paul had faced this problem with the Galatian Judaizing Christians then were trying to make gentile converts undergo Oh circumcision and keep a kosher diet and certainly some gentile converts looked at the vitality of the synagogue in places like Antioch and they wanted a piece of that what action they were jealous of the ancient customs observed among the Jews. They wanted to be Christians. But they didn't want to miss out on the traditions of of Judaism it three of his seven letters Ignatius response to the Dosa tists. He states clearly that Jesus is truly divine at least nine times. He refers I to the Savior as Jesus Christ our God or our God. Jesus Christ yet he states just as explicitly and even more emphatically Gli that Jesus is truly human to make this point. He insists upon the reality of Jesus experiences. In the flesh these passages are among the most passionate and all the letters of Ignatius to have true faith he says is to be and this is a quote fully fully persuaded that our Lord was truly of the seat of David according to the flesh and the son of God according to the will and power of God that he was truly really born of a virgin was baptized by John in order that all righteousness might be fulfilled by him and was truly under punches pilot and Herod The tetrarch nailed to the cross for us in his flesh. Now he suffered all these things for our sakes that we might be saved and he suffered for truly even as also truly raised up himself not a certain unbelievers maintain that he only seemed to suffer as they themselves only seem to be Christians for I know that after his resurrection also he was still possessed a flesh and I believe that he is so now. Now when for instance he came to those who were with Peter he said to them lay. Hold handle me and see that I am not an incorporeal spirit. It and immediately. They touched him and believed convinced both by his flesh and spirit for this reason they despise death. And we're found its conquerors. There's an after his resurrection. He ate and drank with them as being possessed a flesh. Although spiritually he was united to the father I give you these as instructions beloved assured that you also hold the same opinions as I do guard you beforehand from those beasts in the shape of men whom Commu must not simply not receive but if possible not even meet with only you must pray to God for them if by any means they may be brought brought to repentance which however will be very difficult yet. Jesus Christ who is our true life has the power of effecting. This end of quote Jesus ate drank suffered and allowed his friends to touch him. He wasn't playing tricks. He is incapable of deceit so so much for the Dosage Tests Ignatius addressed. The duty is irs in two letters following closely the argument and Saint Paul's letter to the relations quote for for if we still live according to the Jewish log nations says we acknowledged that we have not received grace and of quote thus the new covenant marks a new order established in the blood of Christ. The Judy is irs cannot have it both ways they have to choose between the old law and the New Order of grace. In Christ Ignatius reserved his toughest language for his opposition of heresy repeatedly. He stated his concern for the souls of Wayward Christians because as they had already brought a kind of death upon themselves their choice for error had changed their lives for the worse he noted in his letter to the SMIRNOFF fans and considered those who are of a different opinion with respect to the grace of Christ which has come to us how opposed they are to the will of God they have no regard for I love no care for the widow or the orphan or the oppressed of the bond or of the free of the hungry or of the thirsty. They abstain from the Eucharist and from prayer because they confess not the Eucharist to be the flesh of our savior. Jesus Christ which suffered for our sins in which the father of his goodness this raised up again end of quote. The heretics had stopped caring about the poor and they had stopped going to church because they no longer believed in the real presence of Jesus. Is the Eucharist. Bad Ideas. Were leading to bad behavior. Ignatius wants us all to know that ideas have consequences and the ideas of the doses and Judy is irs were having a corrosive effect on the faith and life of the church in one of seven. Ad He wanted them all to know the real Jesus instead and how did Ignatius come to know him so well. He was obviously acquainted with the scriptures. He often alludes to passages. We know from the New Testament. He seems to be aware of Saint Matthew's Gospel and the letters of Saint Paul but he rarely quotes texts and he refers to the Old Testament. Hardly hardly at all. He lived in time when documents were hard to come by..
Anne Ortelee's November 10, 2019 Weekly Weather
"Welcome to or at least weekly weather. My name is an early. It's a little bit of lake broadcast tonight because it's been a very busy weekend here in the beautiful city of New York We have a lot going on in the sky. We have lot going on in our lives.

He noticed the Saturn and he knew when one of the cold cases unsolved that all the others would solve to write and Saturday employer were wrapping up the last thirty six years. So they're trying to get the stuff out the door and off the books and and process it and get it out there so people can move onto the next chapter so it's a really intense week ahead so I don't want to minimize how intense. It's going to be but also we're going to have a full moon In tourists and Scorpio.

Did the Trump quid pro quo begin even earlier than we thought?
"Got reporter. Eric Lipton here from the New York. Times tonight to talk about a piece of the scandal that we really have watched coming down this pike. That appears to now be pretty well and truly confirmed. We highlighted this on the show on Friday night. Was This David Ignatius column in The Washington Post raising the troubling prospect that the scheme for which the president is now being impeached. This Ukraine scheme which has basically been caught. This year might have been not the first time he did. This might might've been round to basically that Rudy Giuliani and president. Trump might have already done this once before in Ukraine with with almost the same script with the president who preceded Vladimir's Alinsky. David Ignatius was writing about it at the post last week New York Times reporter Andrew Kramer had reported boarded on pieces of this In an article times published in May of last year but now Mark Mazzetti Eric Lipton and Andrew Kramer have updated with the story and it sounds like yeah what has happened in Ukraine ahead of Zilenski. Getting in there the guy who had the infamous phone call with trump. What happened there with the previous yes? President seems very much like a first draft of what president trump has been caught for in this impeachment inquiry. Now quoting from the Times tonight long before a telephone call with with Ukraine's president that prompted an impeachment inquiry. President trump was exchanging political favors with a different Ukrainian leader who desperately sought American help for his country struggle against Russian aggression near the end of two thousand seventeen just as the Ukrainian government was trying to get final approval from the trump administration. The sale of Javelin Antitank weapons the prosecutor secured general then working for the crane president. Petro Par SHANECO quote had begun freezing cases in Ukraine that were relevant to the Mueller investigation including an inquiry inquiry tracing millions of dollars that Ukrainian political figures paid to Mr manafort quote in two thousand seventeen shortly after Mr Giuliani visited. Kiev President Pora Shaneco prosecutor-general took control from an anti-corruption bureau of a criminal investigation related to Mr Manafort same prosecutor general took further steps APPs to slow walk. The Ukrainian cases related to the Muller Investigation in November of two thousand seventeen. He gave an official order to freeze those cases in April of twenty eighteen. That same prosecutor-general would later. Coordinate closely with Mr Giuliani to promote an investigation into former vice president. Joseph R Biden so this year in two thousand nine hundred nine president trump is being impeached for demanding these bogus investigations of Joe Biden.
Booing The President, What Goes Around Comes Around Politics And al-Baghdadi's death
"Trump was at the game last night where he was greeted with boos when his attendance was announced during the game accord the Washington Post the crowds sustained booing hit almost one hundred decibels and was followed by chance of lock him up impeach trump when he was introduced after the third inning he good morning and welcome to morning Joe it is Monday October twenty eight and with us we have MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle White House reporter for the Associated Press Jonathan Lemere president of the Council on Foreign Relations and author of the bulk a world in disarray Richard Haass columnist and Associate the Washington Post David Ignatius and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Retired Four-star Navy Admiral James to Rita's he's chief international security and diplomacy analyst for NBC News and Msnbc it was sort of startling and sad to hear those chance of lock him up Saturday from the crowd I do no pleasure in that it really was there have been many traditions that have been brought about Donald trump and his supporters and people around that are UNAMERICAN of even fascist like a chance of lock her up the sent her back but the lock lock her up about Hillary Clinton repeatedly has become a centerpiece and that's what that's what dictators they take over and then they start talking about imprisoning others and it's un-american it's it's here here playing chant here aw that's that's unfortunately it's been fad to America's political system through Donald Trump and last night it was turned against him it but again it's it's it's un-american and the people in the stands that were doing it last night shouldn't have done it in fact they learned they have learned from Donald Trump that's what you do to political opponents I hope that Donald Trump after saying that he could be facing this entire campaign will cut it out we'll cut it up because this is I remember when Barack Obama was leaving office a lot of liberals wanted George W Bush tried by some international tribunal. I remember saying don't do it because it will be you on the other side of the presence he didn't have to worry about retribution from person that you follow yeah of course you don't you never think Mike Barnicle nobody everything's said anybody's ever going to follow them as president the United States when they first get in just like Donald Trump it's never he's never imagined it but live by the sword die by the sword and sure enough now you have donald trump having bar conduct an outrageous an outrageous investigation against Barack Obama and Donald Trump even calling the forty fourth president United States treasonous it's like this guy is just not smart enough to figure out that it goes around comes around and what he dishes out to others will be dished out to him that's why everybody has to tone it down stop chance stop with fat stop with fascists like tactics and the rhetoric it's just on I'm American and it's just not right yeah Joe and you know if you know this I mean most people know this what of people in this country just want the entire situation calmed down they want the country to come down they want candidates to come down be tough to have the crowd last night come down because really into it unfortunately but I think it's important going forward especially today as we talk about the events that occurred over the weekend that we take the time and the fought to separate it donald trump and whatever you feel about Donald trump to separate him and how he behaves in how he speaks from the actions of the Delta Force team the special operation now flew in and conducted that mission is to separate things and the best of the best of who we are and what we do around world's in why so much of the world still relies on this was in operation over the weekend Jonathan Lemaire you can speak to that but also last night yeah I mean it is certainly an American tradition to boo politicians who go to baseball games there's there's a rich history of the American president seeing the American pastime William Howard Taft was the first president throwing the first pitch I remember the Barco was there and every president since has at some point this accident has not yet not since taking office but he went last night I think the people around him we're hoping it could be part of the victory lap after announcing the death of album Dotty earlier in the day that of course was not the case but let's remember he's deeply deeply unpopular in the district of Columbia itself received about four percent of the vote there in two thousand sixteen obviously it's a little bit of a different crowd last night the world series it's more out-of-towners more corporate types still he was going to get booed and he was but certainly it comes at the end of what his administration feels like a a a significant watershed day for him to be able to make this announcement of the death as Mar Mike said you could separate the president and feelings towards him with what happened the day before in Syria this leader of Isis killed this is just gives president an image he thinks to put alongside President Obama's announcement of the death of Sama Bin Laden and it certainly comes at exactly the right time his people feel for it's an undeniable triumph to happen during the midst of the impeachment inquiry and it allows him to defend his Bryant C. and Syria just somebody Republican senators critical we know we're here we can we get we're GonNa get to that right now get Sewri obviously just follow pro Jonathan said there is a very long enrich fish presence it sporting events most of them do all different but now but again I speak to the lock him up chance again I it's just un-american it started with Donald trump in fact he's made it the centerpiece of his campaign rallies we find it sickening when it happened rallies Kinda sickening it's we we are Americans and we do not do that we do not want the world hearing has chant lock him up to that he created this president or any president that's all I'm saying let's hope is move forward maybe this one US fascist tactic he and his supporters us during chance that you were going to actually imprison your political opponents so let's evatt behind and just I don't we'll see we'll see if the astros possible going to finish it off in Houston I don't know if Max can pitch game seventy it's possible that's what she will tell me before we came but I said President Trump yesterday confirmed the death of Isis later Abu Baqer al-Baghdadi following a raid this weekend in northwestern Syria by US special operations forces president trump tease the announcement in the tweet on Saturday night writing quote something very big has happened God I know by the way they had not confirmed it happened at the time as the Washington clown show post points out the White House script on the death of brutal terrorist Abu Bakar Al Baghdadi was short but president trump turned a somber announcement into a vivid forty minute news conference that included bravado detailed descriptions of military option rations questionable statements and self promotion from the first day I came to office and now we're getting close to three years I would say doc where's al-Baghdadi I want al-Baghdadi and we would kill terrorist leaders but they were names I never heard of they would names it weren't recognizable and they weren't the big names some good won some important ones but they weren't the big name I kept saying where's Al Baghdadi and a couple of weeks ago they were able to scope amount you know these people are very smart than not into the use of cell phones more than not they're very technically brilliant you know they use the Internet better than almost anybody in the world perhaps other than Donald Trump but they use the Internet incredibly well and what they've done with the Internet through recruiting and everything and that's why he died like a dog he died like a coward he who is screaming and crying and frankly I think it's something that should be brought out so that his followers and all of these young kids WANNA leave various countries including the United States they should see how he died now Admiral S- Ravidas ah yeah we'll we'll see we'll get to the the strategic importance of what we get to but again just underlining un-american language and and the sound of tyrants again he died like a dog died like a coward upbringing screaming it's just can you please explain to maybe three of Donald Trump supporters who fist when they hear that the downside of that ny the forty four American presidents who preceded him did not talk about casualties on the ward even if they were the most heinous casualties like Osama bin Laden are are are you name it or Japanese opponents at war are not cease why we we didn't talk that way or Qaddafi in Libya for example In every case Joe the problem here is there's is that internal desire to kind of take victory lap but it's counterproductive it comes across as unprofessional it's spiking the ball in the end zone and here's the real problem it's motivational for the other side make an argument that it's a deterrent I don't think so I think that that tape will be played particularly that image of the dog in the Arab world is well known as as an extremely negative and that'll become a recruiting tool that the Islamic state uses on the Internet and for the record I'd say they're better than Donald Trump there managing apparently to conduct a global operations without owning a shred of

conduct the operation they will use this footage to motivate their followers to recruit more. It's really not how we WANNA play the Yes it is it is actually a much smaller level it's what you call basically press clippings from from locker from for locker uh-huh where somebody on the other side said something you cut out the press clippings you put it up and you used to inspire other people in something we don't want here let's let's let's let's go Richard Haass go to and talk about the impact of the death and we'll we'll get into some of the other things I obviously I remember us being celebrating at least most Americans Saar cow was killed I believe it was in two thousand six two thousand seven thinking that the guy that really was the inspiration for Isis and of course that just lead to more silence splinter groups we of course all celebrated we had our on the deck of the Missouri moment a little bit when Osama bin Laden was killed and two thousand eleven we're all cheering but of course out of that came the rise of Isis and so I'm wondering it's we see very important death but do we make the same one man is going to end the movement that he was so successful in spreading the short answer is yes there's no such thing as decapitation when comes to dealing with terrorists because whether you call them networks of movements they're not narrow organizations that are highly structured we're getting rid of the leadership essentially Abel's all the fighters they'll they'll reform they may splinter and so forth decentralisation there in formality in some ways is is a degree of strain so I think we've got to keep the accomplishment as meaningful as it is in perspective and more important justice important you've got to take steps back and say are we putting ourselves in a position where we can do this sort of thing again and again as we will need to do and there I think the jury's out or you've got to say it's going to become much more difficult we're not gonNA have the forces on the ground collecting the intelligence we're not gonNA have partners like the Syrian Kurds and other Kurds doing so much there's still questions about the willingness of this administration to work closely with its own intelligence community so again yesterday was an important day but we shouldn't exaggerate it and I'm really worried about going forward whether we're going to be able to repeat this because we're going

Turkish troops advance into Syria as Trump washes his hands of the Kurds
"News coming out of northeastern Syria Wednesday morning is devastating David Ignatius the Washington Post tweeted Tuesday night quote a bad situation in northeast Syria is about to get much worse sources tell me that US officials have just informed the Syrian Kurds that Turkey is likely to attack on air and ground in the next twenty four hours the US will do nothing targets are tell byard and Ross outline ironically tell abroad was the main supply route for Isis in two thousand fourteen in two thousand fifteen through an open border from Turkey Turkey refused repeated requests from the US to shut the border that's a big reason why US decided to partner with SDF which took the town in the summer of two thousand fifteen I'm also told the Turkish attack appears coordinated with the Russians russian-backed forces are mobilizing to invade the Kurdish area from the south towards top Gra and other spots. Meanwhile Isis is mobilising sleeper cells in Raka and attacks have taken place tonight and finally writes David Ignatius there's the scary issue of the thousands of Isis detainees families who may be breaking out of camps and prisons After Turkish attack with no American backup plan this is a major disaster coming at us because of trump's decision hours left to stop it sadly the hours left have dwindled to no time left to stop it as just moments after nine am eastern time Wednesday Urkish President Burdon tweeted quote the Turkish Armed Forces together with the Syrian National Army just launched Operation Peace Spring against PKK slash y. p. g. and dash terrorists in northern Syria just know that PK KYI PG he's talking about the Kurds and dash terrorists I guess is in reference to Isis although Turkey considers the Kurds quote interests they're our allies he continued our mission is to prevent the creation of terror corridor across our southern border and to bring peace to the area sure make no mistake he's talking genocide how did we get here well to recap. According to Turkey's communications director during the call with Turkish president aired or one on Sunday Donald trump quote agreed to transfer the leadership of the counter Islamic State Campaign to Turkey in response on Wednesday morning Syrian Kurdish forces allies of the United States issued a general mobilization call along the order with Turkey as Ankara threatened an imminent invasion of the area after I allegedly giving approval on the phone call trump was destroyed paid by Democrats and Republicans alike on Monday then he attempted to backpedal a bit threatening to quote totally destroy and obliterate Turkey's economy me if their push into Syria went too far turkeys been lining up troops for days along its border with Syria and vowed it would go ahead with the military operation and doc bow to the US threat over its plans against the Kurds
Kurdish-led authority in north Syria calls for general mobilization, urges residents to resist imminent Turkish attack
"Let's turn overseas if you know the area and I know you know the area this moment was Turkish forces poised to head into Syria across the border puts a lump in your throat I want into the conversation this from David Ignatius of the Washington Post a bad situation in northeast Syria about to get much worse sources tell me that US officials excuse me I've just informed the Syrian Kurds that Turkey is likely to attack on air and ground in next twenty four hours the US will do nothing so told that Kurdish appears coordinated with the Russians russian-backed forces are mobilizing to invade the Kurdish area from the south both Turkish I'm sorry the Kurdish area from the South I got the Turkish attack wrong at the start of that graph it's a lot molly told our viewers what they need to know well there are serious implications to this clearly for the conflict in Syria that has been ongoing hasn't gotten much attention in the US because it's been somewhat of a stalemate there will be clear and likely devastating consequences for the Kurds that have been such a key US ally particularly in the fight against the Islamic state in Syria and in Iraq as well they're very important to president of Turkey To push the Kurds away from the border it's clearly very important for the Russians to meet some sort of maintain some sort of influence in that situation so there are very real consequences is there could be serious destabilization of the region it's been suggested by analysts who are concerned this could actually heralds the resurgence of Isis When there had been excess clearly at defeating Isis and routing it in the Islamic state in Iraq and Syria but they're so they're very real consequences but it's interesting as Peter said to connect it in a way with the context of the impeachment there's also concern that as the president feels increasingly embattled and as adversaries they'll feel increasingly emboldened to perhaps take advantage of the situation and I think that's what we saw at least with the White House and schol characterization on Sunday it effectively was well the president spoke to President Erdo on the Turkish President and we've decided to step aside and let them move forward with this offensive now in the last couple days that's been walked back but clearly the Turks if they're about to cross the border tonight they're not exactly heating the president's warnings that have been issued since then so that sort of a contextual concern to the impeachment inquiry as well what else is happening in national security and Foreign Policy when all is aren't

California governor Gavin Newsom kicked off climate change NYC with a passionate speech Monday stressing the importance of fighting climate change and criticizing president Donald Trump for his actively anti environmental actions and policies. news and said that there was ample evidence of the dangers of climate change I have a change for us is not an abstract if you still have eight eight percent tell of doubt come the California. after historic wildfires back to back fifteen of the top most destructive wildfires themselves just the last ten years. stay with historic droughts. state with historic floods. mother nature has joined the conversation. I'm in week NYC the convention of panels and showcases for environmental advocates to discuss climate action I think around the United Nations climate summit during his speech Newsome praised his state progress on environmental issues and its position as a global leader in the fight against climate change he said that in California fossil fuels are becoming the out liars not the norm alternative energy into the state of California is fossil fuel energy alternative energy no longer defined by wind and solar and battery technology which are dominant now Connie's growing a fully functioning cap and trade program the most Ignatius low carbon green growth goals in the United States of America there's nothing left for me to sign it's a hundred percent across the board. Kevin Phillips is the director of Sierra Club California she agreed with Newsome that California and they want to be proud of in terms of its track record in fighting for the environment he's right in that we've done a lot in this state and certainly when you compare it to the rest of the country and when you look at some of the timing we've we've done some of these things in California was pushing it should be a call and came up with its first zero emission vehicle regulations back in the nineteen nineties so we have been a leader in many ways historically for the U. S. on various environmental issues. however Phyllis argue that California was still falling short in its self proclaimed role as global environmental leader. while Phillips agreed with news from decision at the state was improving renewable energy production and technology to put out the oil production export are still significant industries in California when it comes to transportation fossil fuel still dominate they will likely dominate unless we become more aggressive and the legislature and the governor becomes more aggressive in laying out a path for reducing production of oil in transitioning are an economy away from one specially in particular regions transitioning our economy in the state away from one that is dependent on oil production. California's only top ten producers of oil in the United States roughly equal in production to Alaska Alexandra navy is the California director with food and water watch an environment and public health nonprofit thank you said that she was disappointed in new sums lack of action to limit oil production not only because of its implications for climate change but also for the safety and health of Californians Gavin Newsom hasn't addressed the fossil fuel crisis in California we have over eighty thousand oil well over a hundred thousand miles of pipelines almost over three hundred gas powered gas fired power plants and this is what's making community sick every day right now families and children are living next to killing in their backyards are gas plants in their in their neighborhoods and this is what we want to see him do is take action to immediately halt the expansion of the fossil fuel industry and make a plan to shut shut it down. environmental advocates including bills Nike and Phillips say that at the very least there should be increased scrutiny and restrictions on where oil rigs can be placed in order to minimize the public health risk. gene see with the energy director and staff attorney at the center for biological diversity. it's an Arizona based environmental nonprofit who was present in New York to protest Newsome refusal to ban oil drilling in the state. in an interview with KPFA is Brian Atwood teacher she said it was not too late for someone to make the difficult but meaningful choices that needed to be made to stop climate change what we're talking about is essentially stopping the capture of our government by fossil fuel companies we see at the U. one year after year that oil and gas corporations are financing the claimants talks around the world very similarly in California they have been very influential on our politicians this is the exact moment where we need someone like Gavin Newsom to break through all of that noise and very clearly say climate emergency equal stopping fossil fuel extraction and I am going to step up and actually do that. Newsome for his part has said that he can make no progress on putting limitations on oil production without the support of the legislature which he's not sure he will receive. but the one climate summit is only scheduled for Monday climate week NYC is planned to run through Sunday September twenty ninth I'm Scott Bala pacifica radio
Why Is There a Rhino-Shaped Cave in Washington State?

Not all fossils are bones or shells or tc. Most of us would agree that mammoth tusks and stegosaurus spikes are pretty darn cool and yet the fossil record is not limited to old body parts fossil's are defined as any naturally preserved remains or traces of life forms that existed in in the geologic past and that covers a lot of ground and that's sort of a pun because the fossils can take the form of a footprint leave impression or filled tunnel left behind by prehistoric land beavers. One of the strangest fossils ever discovered is actually a cave about fifteen million years ago in what's now eastern in washington state of okina fissure eruptions and lava streaming into a shallow river lake where rhino happened to be wallowing a layer of basaltic rock formed formed around the beast preserving the outline of its well cooked body long after the flesh rotted away leaving only a few bones for millions of years this rhino shaped hole in the earth lay hidden in the cliffs washington's grant county near blue lake a popular hiking destination by the nineteen thirties erosion had worn cornhole into one end of subterranean creature mold exposed to open air. Here's the story of how the blue lake rhino cave came to be and how four for seattle rock hounds accidentally discovered it only five species. The frano are alive. Today and none of living five species are indigenous to north or south america america however from about forty to seventy million years ago rhinos common in north america somewhere hippo like semi aquatic animals others had wicked tusks instead of the nasal horns we see in their modern day counterparts paleontologists think the blue lake cave likely formed around the corpse of a die sarah theory him mm-hmm while female dies. There were horn lewis. Each adult male had a pair of small horns sitting side by side near the tip of his snout. The dimensions of the blue lake cave tell us that the dice area mm-hmm left behind was about eight feet. That's two point four meters long from snout career and still a little bit less than four feet. That's one point two meters eaters tall at the shoulder in life. The animal probably weighed about a ton or so. Nobody knows if the creature had already died when it became entombed however <unk> judging by the contours of the mold it seems the body was rather bloated. This could indicate the decomposition was already setting in also the legs are pointed skyward telling telling us the rhino may have been floating on its back in the state of rigor mortis. The caves walls are made of fifteen million year old pillow assault a kind of ignatius rock that normally forums when lava contacts cold water and rapidly cools down so dead or alive the dice earth area must have been hanging out in a body of water during a volcanic eruption option then the lava came pouring in. Maybe it got knocked over anyway. Lava can hit temperatures of more than one thousand six hundred degrees fahrenheit. That's nine hundred degrees celsius. Ordinarily this ultra hot material would have burned right through the beasts skin flesh and bone but instead the cold water converted the molten rock into a tightly packed layer of hardening pillow assault the corpse eventually rotted away and even most of its bones disappeared yet the mole that enveloped the bodies stayed largely intact a- largely but not entirely a when you think about it the fact that we even know this weird little cave exists is pretty amazing thing millions of years after the thing formed flowing water carved an opening in the mold right about where the rhinos hindquarters used to be a yet erosion hasn't strayed completely today. The case entrance is big enough for an adult person to enter but getting inside may prove difficult for some visitors you see the blue lake. Bryan cave is located in the face of a cliff about three hundred feet or ninety one meters above the lake shares its name during the summer of nineteen thirty five to adventures couples calls from seattle were hiking around the cliff in search of petrified wood on their trip. The court happened to discover the cave. They had the honor of becoming the first people in recorded history enter enter the prehistoric rhino mold inside. They noticed a handful of fragmentary animal bone fossils including partial jaw. These were sent to paleobotanist the george f beck of central washington university who couldn't resist visiting the site for himself upon gathering more bones listed california institute of technology paleontologist chester mr stock to identify them stock determined that the bony bits came from an extinct rhino soon scientific community realized that the cave itself was a full body cast of that that very same animal abuse to last drew breath fifteen million years ago in nineteen forty eight a team from the university of california at berkeley heroically scaled the cliff and filled the cave with plaster creating three-dimensional duplicate of the interior also an exact hollow replica of the cave was put on display at seattle's burke museum where it still stands today.

Turn the bus around and comeback. HSE athlete director Phil freed said the game has been postponed the six PM central coast section open division three quarterfinal game. At live oak was one of thirty three playoff games in the bay area called off Monday because of poor air quality caused by the campfire in Butte county, the Irish were likely last to get word, and certainly the most inconvenienced McLaughlin had read the AQHA index around Morgan hill all day and was hopeful the rematch with the acorns SHC was eliminated at live oak in a first round CCS game last year would be one of the few CCS. Games. Played all but four of the fifteen CCS games were postponed by early afternoon by five pm. They all have been called off the Irish were sixty miles from home. They returned roughly ninety minutes later unscathed optimistic and still together. Sure, we were disappointed to get the word and not to play McLaughlin said, but none of us lost perspective. Y we had to turn around. There's a greater good at play here. If air-quality cooperates the Irish five and five we'll get back on that bus Friday for a seven PM game. Like almost all football teams in the postseason. SHC needs to remain patient and sharp getting in practice time could be a challenge this week. That was another reason McLachlan was hoping the Irish could get in the game. This is the third time. The game was rescheduled on the way down the kids were definitely focused on the game. He said we were very much locked in. It was. All business coming down when they got the news they regrouped quickly they're teenagers. But they know what's going on.

"I wanna get into part b. this, which is David. Ignatius is a piece who was intimately involved in this. He's the one, of course, who was on the recipient end of potentially devastating classified information about Mike Flint's call with Kislyak who wrote the story about that. David, Ignatius from the Washington Post, Ignatius suspiciously comes out with an opinion piece of the Washington Post. No, you know, I don't want to give these guys clicks, but please it pains me to tell you this. I put it in the show notes today. I want you to read this and I want you to read it for one specific reason. My evaluation of it is Ignatius knows what's going on, and it is a clear effort now to separate him from the scandal and to start to acknowledge show that some pieces of this Russian collusion story are true while keeping attention away from the bigger scandal. In other words, they're running out of ways to say this didn't happen that didn't happen. So to maintain some semblance of me, please understand what I'm saying to maintain some semblance of media credibility. They're going to have to acknowledge that parts of the Russian. Interference part with relation to the Democrats are true while I believe ignoring the larger narrative that it was obviously a spy network by Obama and Obama's team. He's trying to cover up by saying, okay, well, the Republicans may be right about this, but the rest of this conspiracy theory garbage. That's is that make sense. Read the piece. That's why I hit the lead I the lead is this was a political scandal. The Russian narrative was made up later to cover the political scandal. Read this piece with that in your head, and it'll make sense. Again, I hate given the Washington Post clicks, but this is a serious critical moment, and I need you to understand the media's role in this to reading nations piece. It'll make sense. All right.
