"John Baxter. This is the John Baxter show After the election with my colleague Michael play host of Johns Hopkins. Continuing our discussion of Are we now in a civil war? We do not know we expected before the election. It would resolve nothing. It has not. The two sides remain buoyant. And robust and filled with ideas about what happened last week and the years ahead. I'm keen on answering the question. Are we now in a civil war on the basis of how the major figures are acting? The print caps and Michael and I sometimes fancy ourselves as Roman citizens in London. Him forgive us. It's the nature of being a senior figure in America that you get to imagine yourself almost anywhere. Knowing the young people are energetic and you're not so we imagine ourselves. 90 80 in London him always reflecting upon the emperor, our sister mission, But he won't last that much longer. It will be the end of his dynasty, and there'll be another and another and another. So right now, in the drama of the print caps, that is what the emperor was called in The Roman Times. There is one print caps the print caps of red. Let's call him in the forum in the palace, walking Rome and not yet departing into exile. The other print caps the print caps of blue Is hesitating in Delaware nearby, the forum asking for the other to depart, but he has not yet so We're in this in between period. And we look at language that's being used routinely now in headline writing exaggerated language, but it's used in distinguished publications. I read one Headline from The New Yorker. The long term damage of Trump's anti democratic lies with this subhead. Political scientists caution that though a coup by the outgoing president is unlikely. Trump's actions. They're causing dangerous democratic erosion. Nothing Michael and I could say tonight could out could exaggerate more. The idea of America than to use the word coup in 2020. Okay, there it is. However, other words are being used. Erase. You will see this in headline writings Erase. Joe Biden plans to erase and fill in the blank or blacklist blacklist applied to people who worked during the Trump administration work for Donald Trump. Or the idea that people are going to come forward and confess their sins and give up what they've done for the illegitimate print caps these many years before they're allowed into whatever whatever circle Freedom. Michael, however, turns is to another direction. What happens during the time of a purge? Good evening to you, Michael. Good evening, John. What we're looking at. I think today is ah phenomenon that is well attested in history. In fact, it's it's hallowed in history, and it is the phenomenon of a A religion or an ideology. You could say a theology or an ideology certainly unstitched to shin of faith, whether it's a church or party like the Communist Party, or The church of Woke, which is now the dominant driving force of faith among blue. Um, they there is a, um Process of any young religion were mission becomes the dominant, um Counsel, the foremost Ah sort of objective and goal and that is to convert proselytizing to expand the flock of this new faith. And and that has been going on for some time in American academia, especially as young people are converted to two woke nous that's been going on. In a very visible way in the last 10 years or so. But now That they sense uh, being close to the power of the state. If not being the power of the state. This religion is moving toward Focus on heresy. And heresy is extremely valuable and and, in fact necessary in in the process of consolidating control. That any state religion embarks upon once they get into power and their five elements to heresy. One is heresy is a comfort. Heresy tells believers that evil truly exists and it it's a way of affirming the faith. Strangely by showing that that evil is there, therefore, there must be Good and that evil is essentially trying to renounce, repudiate, overturn the good and therefore evil must be defeated. So it creates a Powerful motivation and a necessity among among the faithful that could be used by the elites. But secondly, heresy forces the faithful Focus urgently on the evil and so when everybody is focusing, their energies on the struggle with evil attention is drawn away. From the struggles that are going on within this new faith, this new church between different factions and different sects. There are many theological splits, and that is absolutely the case within blue today. And then woke is fractured in and fissured in many ways, But if everyone is focused on the struggle with evil, then there is a call for For unity for everyone to join together, no matter what their sectarian differences, and that is, in fact what has been achieved and the third thing is the The threat of heresy also pushes and this is very important pushes attention away from inequalities between leadership and the people. So if you have a party like the Communist Party, or or Ah church, like the Latin Church in medieval Europe or say in Spain and in the Uh, in the Reformation period or the church of woke today, we'd have been known notoriously unfairly enrich themselves, but if they if they if they call for great struggle Like like urban. The second called for a crusade, and they become suddenly the stainless knights leading the faithful to battle. Then these elites who otherwise would look holy cropped. Suddenly become objects of veneration. They're like Henry, the fifth a, You know, sort of urging on exhorting the believers to, you know, go once more into the breach. And so in fact, it's It's a tremendous accession of strength to elite because fully distracts people away from from what's going on. Then of fourth, the rise of heresy. Is a great way to, uh, to follow on as a changeling to replace the original mission so in the early church is trying to convert people through persuasion. It's very earnest, and it isn't at all violent or threatening a bullying. And when this the work of this mission has gone as far as it can go. Then the ability to move it into a focus on heresy on evil that kicks everything up a notch. And so here is a nexus, essential evil that threatens the mission like the deplorables. Like Obviously the devil himself, Mr Trump, And then that creates a new opportunity for Clarion call sounding the toxin. The call from mobilization..

"This is the John Baxter Show Election. 2020. And I welcome my colleague Chris Regal, the CEO of scholar dot com. Most importantly, he's in Dayton, Ohio. And he does international business. So we're going to start local in Dayton and then speak of Ohio, which right now is decidedly in the Trump column, but not called, at least according to the careful And hesitant, recalling tonight The mixed picture of Mai Lin's absentees and day of voting means that it is It is unusually difficult to get ahead of this, so I pause. But Ohio is traditionally superstitious. Lee ceremonially the state that Republicans win more than any other if they're to be the president of the United States, Mr Trump won Ohio in 2016 so Chris is a very good evening to you Your view from Dayton, Your view from Ohio. Mr Trump is well in the lead now, although some are willing to call it from some not Do you see the Dayton vote or the Ohio vote is unusual, or does it match what you saw in 2016? Good evening to you, Chris. But evening, John. There were certainly heavy early voting here as there was among much of the country I think you see in the The early comments from the mainstream media about a blue wave that at at minimal that petered out, as you see not only strength for the president in Ohio, but the reelection of congressman both Turner and Jordan in Ohio, which could be the canary in the coal mine. If you look to Ohio to say, how does Ohio predict, say, Michigan or Pennsylvania? If you're looking at the North Eastern counties to the east of Cleveland on the Pennsylvania border. Those have been a solid red block this evening, and that is quite likely very good news for Pennsylvania and potentially also for Michigan, because a very similar Blue collar steel fracking manufacturing corridor that applies in those states as well. I see. So I'm looking at the western, the eastern border of Ohio along Pennsylvania and I see solid red counties all the way down Monroe County, Belmont County. Jefferson County Colombiana County. I know my colleague Selena. Zito told me to watch Columbia on a county carefully and this would be indicative of what's across the border, the rural states of Pennsylvania. I see the large cities Cleveland and Columbus and Cincinnati. Um all trending blue. However, there is this fresh information from Florida. That the Latino vote in the African American vote We're stronger for Trump than they were in 2016. Do you have any indication of those votes in the urban centers of pence of of Ohio? That would be where you are in Dayton? Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati. From Montgomery County, just observing the traffic for early voting and haven't compared that to the election of Barack Obama, Montgomery County and the city of David, which is a heavily African American metro centre. African American voters turned out heavily for Obama, but very much less so in this election, certainly participating, but not the levels seen previously, and I think, if anything would be drawn from that, it's that bike may may not have been a real motivator for those African American voters in Ohio. I also believe that Trump picked up quite a few Latino voters in Ohio. Yes, And I see the northwestern part of Ohio is all solid red as well. Traditionally, So does that mean that there's a heavy vote out? Across the border in Michigan, Michigan is in advance. We do not have it the code The counting will go on for some days. I'm told anecdotally, Chris, that there's Ah softness for the Biden vote in Fairfax County, Virginia in Detroit, Central Detroit, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Bob. The puzzle here is is their softness for Biden include in Cincinnati in Ohio. Do you hear? So do hear disappointment from the Democrats that they didn't get the vote that they hoped for, or that Mrs Clinton of God in 2016? I think that if you look at Ohio over the last 5 to 6 elections, there was a much larger union component here, and when you're talking to the union rank and file whether they be electrical workers or pipefitters or others. They're focused principally on the economic issues and voting with their wallets. And while they may not necessarily aligned to trumps politics, they certainly lying toe in economic policy of more jobs in future construction. And I think between the two candidates in Ohio Trump probably took a larger percentage of that union vote. In this election than even in prior elections. He would not walk into a union hall and see a messaging other than Biden. But when talking to the union members, they're principally all voting for Trump. Yes, I'm told that the the witticism in Boston was. Don't ask me who I'm voting for. Asked me who my neighbors voting for. Then you get a better answer. Now globally. Everybody's watching this. The The bookies in London of switched their odds dramatically in these last hours. The NASDAQ is up, but it goes up and down. That's the nature of markets. You travel internationally when we're free to travel again. How does this How does this news of a possible trump incumbents a return suit Europe or suit Asia? Are there any generalities that we can draw upon? Given that this is not the result? The pollsters promised 24 hours ago. Very carefully watched the dollar T Wan trade, which started to head very much against yuan in the last two hours, so the Chinese currency seems to be reacting to the possibility of a trump reelection. The policies that would be continued in a second Trump administration are not particularly good precision Ping. And if Trump is reelected, anticipate the Chinese have to come to the table and cut a deal. They're no longer in a in a position to be able to outlast Trump in a trade war. And Mr Trump's policies suiting for the recovery. Does this suit globally? His policies? Are there going to be more accustomed to Mr Trump now? To measure if if he returns to the White House, in other words, that they're going to cut a deal, Chris is Boris Johnson going to ring up trump and say, All right, let's get together. Pragmatically speaking. I think you had a number of world leaders that probably dislike Donald Trump, personally and professionally. That being said they're not gonna wait another four years if he's reelected. To try to restart their economies. The U. S is still the biggest and most powerful economic market in the world. So if Trump is reelected this evening into this week than those leaders will have to cut deals for their people, the best deals that they can get because they cannot box themselves out of the U. S market. The generality is that Americans vote their pocketbooks. Do you see that tonight, Chris or Is there some trend here? That is not that is not traditional. I think if if Trump is successful in winning tonight, I think you're seeing a repudiation of many sectors of the media in many sectors of the population. That are really kicking back and saying, we're tired of being talked down to. We're tired of explaining that all lives matter or explaining that our jobs being outsourced to China stop so you could see yet again another wave of the basket of deplorables pushing back against the Coast elites. I read you from Senator Lindsey Graham's Victory speech tonight and South Carolina. Uh, he's necessarily excited, but he's also always eloquent..

"I'm John Baxter. This is John Baxter Show Michael Lejos. Johns Hopkins is here and we are entertaining. Are we now in a civil war? We do not know. We are certainly divided nation before another presidential vote. The outcome of Tuesday will not be determinative. Michael and I have settled on the idea that the strife will continue if Joe Biden winds and the polls say he's going to win. That's all we know. We don't have a crystal ball. He is I Tiberius like figure quite distant. He had retired. He's been pulled out of retirement by the Democratic Party. But because of his age, and because of some of his limitations he resembles Tiberius. The second Roman emperor who withdrew from the Senate, withdrew from Rome and parked himself in Capri. But following that, for several 100 years was the break up of the Roman Empire. Fragmented first into two big pieces. And then Teo. It just disintegrated. The Western part disintegrated after the starting in the fifth late fourth century early fifth century A D. The eastern part held together you could probably make a case all the way to the Crusades. Michael is that a recognizable and acceptable outcome of the United States of America that we fragment into East West North South North America, South America. And that with the remembrance of America is the way we remember Rome. Well, here's the kind of schizophrenic problem for America as you say. Art. Tiberius wants to maintain his recognition authority over the whole world, and we have a giant foreign policy establishment. The deep state as some would have it who want to continue to rule the world. But this is not possible, given the tremendous divide in American society. And the incapacity of any single person or any vision that's out there to bridge the divide that's so existential and a super divided Empire. Is going to be faced with a merciless, opportunistic photos abroad. And if you want another Roman analogy, this is exactly what happened to the Roman Empire in the third century. When resurgent Sustain me in Persia attacked Rome and and a bunch of Of Germanic Peoples also invaded Rome at four or five points, and the entire Roman Empire actually came apart in the third century. This was the great crisis. Of the third century, and the fact is that the United States is not in a position with a titular but fatally weak emperor. To continue to be the world's leader in a situation where the entire society is is at each other's throats, and so This is a problem. Nobody can face because what I see and I think a lot of us see this is that the ruling establishment is in such a state of denial. That it can't come to terms with the fact that this is actually happening, and they refuse to devote even an ounce of their energy to trying to Understand or figure out how we can deal with this internal strife. Because it runs the risk of of destroying our centuries long dominance of the world, which, of course, goes back to Woodrow Wilson. And so the American century, I think right now is on a razor's edge on a precipice, Michael the victory of the senatorial class, right? That describes the beginning of the turmoil or the resolution of the turmoil. You know, Rome gives us two examples. We just have a minute here. Let's guess tonight, Michael. We don't like to guess about the future. But We could go in. Either way, Tiberias Biden could settle this down and the optimum Ottis could make deals for a number of years. You no more programs. Or senatorial class could disturb us with mandates that are unacceptable and we start all over again. Can you Can you suppose with a minute left? Well, we know what happened in Rome in Rome. The um the big man, the dominant figures like Caesar and then later, Augustus. They bought off and Co opt it right the popularity and then They were in control. The op Tomatis Senatorial class remaining control the next 500 years. I don't see those people today in America, and they're hugely powerful. All the great corporations, Universities, Media Center center. I don't see them being that smart. What I see them doing Is arbitrarily lowering the boom on regular people, especially read people and thus exacerbating the conflict. In other words, the dynamics of conflict. Have yet to be played out and in Rome. At the end of the first century, when Caesar appeared in Augustus Romans were sick of a century of actual physical conflict. But Americans, especially red Americans, have a lot of fight left in them. And so I don't think that we're at the All right. We'll leave it there. Michael blows before the election. We will speak after the election. Michael playoffs of Johns Hopkins, I'm John Bachelor. Are you looking to hire someone with proven world class job.

"I'm John Baxter. This is John Cara back part of Azerbaijan. I have visited several times in these last years. A land of great farming potential that has left right now to my discernment. To be very much a part of the world conversation about peace and war there is fighting and no gardener car back now. There has been fighting over these decades since the end of the Soviet Union. Especially because it know garner car back a mountainous region with lots of alleys and lots of water and lots of fertile land was overrun and the next by forces from Armenia. And those Armenian forces have remained in place with a line of control drawn in the dirt for decades. That may be changing, and I welcome Hickman, Hygiene, assistant of the president of the Republic of Azerbaijan. Head of foreign Policy Affairs Department of the Presidential Administration. He is in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. Ah, very good evening to Mr Haji of heck, mad. Why is right now? Why is there fighting and Nagorno car back, which is part of Azerbaijan? It's part of your country. Why is there fighting? Good evening to you? Good evening. It's all the pleasure it still don't actually for the 30 Years war import by Armenian Azerbaijan continuous You're absolutely right. That territory behind seven Addison religions down. The location of Armenia, also at Clinton has been conducted against Virginia people in occupied credited Why now? Broken escalation of this conflict actually was unexpected because we have seen our million prime minister on purpose. Deliberate manner was trying to destroy substance on four months off the negotiation process, he said. Kalaba full stop in Armenia it needs but there's nothing we can discuss in the negotiation process. I also tried to change a four month of negotiation process on a look of political movement of provocations committed by Armenia from another side, Armenian defense minister's adopted very aggressive military talked enough Armenia that said new wars for New territories and we have witnessed culmination ofthe on July when Armenia attacked other by John's border. I also tried to attack other official communication languages on DH. And over September since over September. We have been monitoring concentration off Armenian troops along the line of contact. They attacked other virginity. Ah, um, probably And that we have an escalation of the situation. Another by John both compels, taking a confirmation to enter insurance security and conservationist Julia on also finally to ensure the liberation of the Armenians, occupations. So there is a connection between the eruption of artillery fire on the international border. In July. And this president fighting in Nagorno car back there were later is that correct, Hickman? Ah, you know, attack on the border between army Another blowjob total direction but was also perpetrated by army inside which will be a provocation. It was just preparation Pull this wide scale operation from Armenia inside. On intention was to date of initiation process to create another provocation and also it also older life from the new military traffic of media that calls for new territory grab on new territorial occupation because their understanding they can attack our virginity on playing a joke among civilians and taking utilities or compiled against predators. So the inference safety off over the occupied territories, sometimes an understandable mindset. A full official doctor and the doctor off this country off in Armenia. Several days passed. I was surprised and and thrown back Toa learn that ballistic missiles have been fired from Armenia to ganja, the second largest city, a city I've broadcast from not once, but twice in these last years. A city of farmers and a city that is on a very important infrastructure route to add to Europe, those ballistic missiles. I believe there were casualties. But I was told that I said Why? Why would you attack gun to this? Not a military city. This is the center of Ganges built like a European city. The answer I had was That the Armenians were trying to provoke a ballistic missile attack against Armenia by Azerbaijan. As of now, that has not happened. Correct. You're not fighting in Armenia, You're fighting in your own territories that corrected man. Perhaps someone killed your mother. Virgin is operating on the sovereign territory, Father by John on territory. You get recognized by the international community and we're not going to the terrace of the country. On other by John of this operation is in peace enforcement operation from other genocide, the Interest Safety Institute of other beginning civilians to ensure visual of Armenian troops on also to green Finally Armenia to peace, But I mean, you can practice space in the negotiation courses contradicted manner. Unfortunately, wild things that fit on the battleground. They are attacking innocent witness on multiple locations and united to the cube and track population of cordial father began on today, the attacking flourishing on prosperous other Virginia City's with extensive missile attacks special they're using touch. Go smash that dangerous A loaded with a cluster munitions. Built attacked Candace. Second biggest cause of organics, also my hometown on DH Downtown citizen also annoying again. A collusion are living in a dense manner at the medieval Ah 50 your father by John This is an especially cells. They also targeted other communications, including the elected The Greek system means that you don't even try to Acapulco on Oscar's buckle certainly solved but from other but genocide. We are very selective in our target execution on Target selection we're using I take along technology. Including precision guided munitions, so to attack until nature alive, legitimate military targets on to minimise as much as as possible collateral damage is only legitimate military targets. I see. There is fresh video from President Ali of speaking to the Azerbaijani people and to the whole region than the whole neighborhood. What is the mood in Baku? Now? Are people frightened? Are people leaving? Do they support the efforts of reclaimed the gardener car back or do they have doubts? Hickman? We have a few summer down another by Jenna Society, because people also demanding from the government on also asking for the international community to end injustice against other virginity people. Because more than 30 years were suffering from this conflict from the war imposed by Armenia on other vagina, people, people, I think enough is enough. Enough of injustices enough also the crimes by army against other beginning studio, But in this period of time, Armenia killed more than 30. Other vagina civilians, including the kids, one found five members of one family, including the crickets died as a result of artillery attacked by more than 100. People have been found in more than 5000 homes have been destroyed in the cross hairs of other people for my job. Become like a studying, right? Just begin one hour 2000 and two a lot of people, man. The people are not intimidated on this in just demanding justice over huge time cannot imagine a society on what people want. Liberation ofthe other Virgin territory is returning to their homes and conflicts in the territorial integrity of the other by John also ending military occupation off Is there. An attempt to attack the international energy line that runs from Azerbaijan to Turk to Georgia to the Black Sea to Turkey? Has there been an attack on on the on the oil line of the gas line? Yes, they are actually the soul So I go by John Ford. I'm casting process capture also involved a lot of investment from foreign Pacnews right. Initial Pakistan growing United States investment is also present. They tried to attack other gas plant fun. One of the missiles loaded with a cluster munition landed next to back with a message. A home pipeline. Actually, they're only declared, but one of their target is the Sunday World. Hunger by John is one of the biggest one indigent.

"John Baxter. This is the John Baxter Show. My colleague Francis Rose. He's the host of government matters at W. J. In L. A in the nation's capital. Francis speaks with the workforce of the federal government and no more consistent work force than the census takers are now challenged. I learned from Francis is reporting. By two unpredicted matters, one weather and to the virus, But the census doesn't accept excuses. It must be delivered on time. Francis You spoke, He spoke to Cris Meme, managing director. Strategic issues of the day o the big question right away. Are they going to be on time? Have they got their resource is good evening to you. Good evening, John. They have their resource is but they have the natural challenges that you just described and Chris basically laid out on the program. The challenges that The Census Bureau is up against. They have a December deadline to submit data in order for the state to be able to start to make their reapportionment decisions and they're going to be working. I bet right up till the very deadline the very last minute of that deadline. What's instructive about my conversation with Christmas comes to the Census issues. I asked him before we went on the air. How many of these he had overseen a G A o. And he said his first work a G A O had to do with the 1990 census, So he's on his fourth one. And he has tremendous historical knowledge of what's going on with the census. What was striking to me was the work that he presented to Congress pointed out problems or challenges for the Census Bureau to look at. That were very similar to the ones that I talked to him about on the radio in 2010. And when I went back and looked at the work that he'd done for the 2000 census in the 1990 cents is, um, same challenges basically year after year after year sentence after sentence after census finding enough people who are qualified to go out and Use the tools that the Census Bureau gives them whether they've been paper as they have been historically or mobile devices and APS as they're using this year when they go out, but The the two big differing factors this time around are the extreme weather in certain parts of the country. And the corona virus. John the Internet option. Yes. Now was this. Not here in 2010. Is this the first year they've used it extensively. So if you dig into Chris's work, you'll see that one of the challenges this year's information technology and it was one of the challenges for the 2010. Cents is as well I covered that one. A federal news radio and the problem that two big information technology challenges. Then one was yes, getting their Internet option up and running. They got it close. But not done quite well enough. The issue If I recall correctly, 10 years ago, was identity management, making sure that when Francis Rose or John Bachelor log on that it really wass Francis Rose and John Bachelor That's been solved this year and I did mine online and I'm I told Chris on the air. It worked like a charm. I filled out my senses information in a matter of 5 to 10 minutes and was done with it. The other challenge they had 2010 T wise was with mobile devices. At that time, the Census Bureau was not confident in the ability to build an app that worked on a smartphone and the landscape of smartphones was completely different then than it is today. So they commissioned in 2007 or eight. I believe it Wass. They commissioned a custom mobile device to be made. Harris Corporation was the company that did for him. And Harris, at one point finally had to say I'm sorry. We just can't do this because since has changed what they wanted the device. Is to do A number of times over the year year and a half. It got to a point that Harris representative told me after the fact where they literally couldn't put in the box in the configuration that it needed to be all of the stuff that the senses wanted it to do. So these kinds of challenges have been ongoing. Things like the Internet option, make it easier because now the senses is only trying to do The same kinds of things that myriad private sector organizations are trying to do. But that hasn't always been the case. Did he come in on security, the protecting that data that they've accumulated online? Well, he didn't comment on security to me, but I've talked to leaders of the Census Bureau on and off the air John and they both. They all say that. The most important thing that they're doing now, Obviously, the data people are their most important thing is, is the data correct? Is it accurate to the best extent that it can be, But the people are really concerned about security because number one. They want people's data to be secure Number two. They want to let people be able to let people know that their data is secure and that they don't have the same kinds of security problems that other agencies have run into. You spoke with David Marsh. A chick. Ah, Healthy, Happy man. He is the director of the Center for Presidential Transition Partnership for Public Service. Hey, Frances. How can there be presidential transition? We don't have an election yet. What's this? What is this? Well what what This is. I referred to him and I refer in all of my conversations, viewers. The regular viewers are probably sick of me Hearing this sick of me, telling the story. But I recall during the 2008 presidential campaign, Senator McCain chastised in May or June, Senator Obama for announcing his transition team. Turns out that's a really good idea whether you're actually going to be president or not, because you have about two months little bit more if we know the winner of the election. The day after the election. You have about two months and two weeks to be able to get your team in place to be able to govern on January 21st. And so what has happened since that 2008 election is a series of pieces of legislation that give the nominees of the major parties once their conventions. Confirm that those air the officially the nominees they get resource is they get office space in Washington for those transition teams to come in and start to vet people start to conduct interviews and go through the thousands and thousands and thousands of applications for the jobs. Two. Become political appointees in the administration. There are about 3500, I think was the last account on ly about 1000 of those air confirmed by the Senate. But as you well know, John Washington does not always move swiftly and so to get those people's security clearances done to get them. Ready for the confirmation hearings. If they're among those group that needs to be Senate confirmed that takes a lot of time. And the the goal of the of the transition project is so that whoever wins he or she is ready to govern on January 21st and these are career jobs or do the party's contribute people who are working with him with them. So it's a combination of both the General Services Administration, the most famous agency. The most important agency. I think that nobody knows exists, runs it and there is a career person designated in every transition to work with both campaigns and and work with the offices of both campaigns to make sure that they're people have the resource is they need Jessa is very efficient. They basically have a list. Of the resource is that the legislation provides for and they they make sure that these places have office space and furniture and Internet connections and hardware. To be able to use the Internet connections and all of those things that you would need to set up a temporary office space understanding that one of them will disappear The day after the election, One of them will be closed down..

Through the center, part of the country and lives you note. The polling is closing there. We could expect that a close election. However, the puzzle here is what is going to change in these next several weeks. For the Trump campaign. We're told repeatedly that Joe Biden leads by a dominant number nationally. So what do you see? Over these next weeks in the battleground states that will close the gap that now exists. What is it? 3.5%? That's what the averages battleground states. Well, One of the things that clearly has changed is the focus on crime and violence, and all the protests have looted and burned cities. And I think that there are whole with done jets in the last couple of days showing that into swing states and I'm I could be wrong. I think it was Wisconsin and Michigan. It could be Wisconsin, Pennsylvania. Over 65% of voters. All the sun think that is a very big problem that wasn't even on the agenda six months ago. This is something that really newly has arrived in the lap of voters. On, You know, I think you look at what happened in Kenosha. Kenosha is not Baltimore. It's not D C or New York thes or not. These are big cities that are known tohave. Problems. Kenosha is sort of every man's town big town to be sure on to see what the damage that was inflicted. On that community by rioters, by the way, Whole also indicated people now think these air rioters, not protesters. That's something that Joe Biden has not addressed, has not been willing to address except in the Vegas of terms and on Lee after being Literally prodded out of his basement. Uh and Donald Trump is pretty strong on that. I mean, all the police literally. Almost. Every police organization has now come out to endorse him and a lot for a lot of those unions. That's a very bold move. Oh, and an unusual move. But these cop attacks that took place took place over the weekend on the vilification of law enforcement. I got to tell you. I don't think that works in any community and Democrats have let this happen. So shame on them on. I think that is something that's moving the needle now, and I think it will continue to the strength for the Biden campaign was always in suburbia, so the question is raised. Does the matter of disorder in the city's touch suburbia. I don't have any way of demonstrating and other than to saying every time there's a delivery of ammo and all the gun stores, I'm told that it's sold out. That's one way of responding. Another thing is thie suburbs of Philadelphia, where I grew up. Montgomery County, the so called collar counties. They're anxious right now, about what they see in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. There was it was a disorder there. I'm wondering if that translates nationally or is it our these local matters? We can't tell this point. However, Joe Biden is surprisingly not responding. It. It's not hard to say that there's reason to doubt that anti fies spontaneous. That's not a hard thing to say He won't even talk about Antifa. It's odd. Well, and Jerry Nadler, you know, leading Democrat in the House, said Antifa was a myth. I don't know how they can be so dense about this. These videos that are online and pretty accessible and pretty widely viewed showing people attack it. Black people attacking quite people or And keep a people attacking cops or whatever that does not warm your heart. I mean, I can't really imagine many people are thinking that's a great thing. And by the way, probably the most. Upset. People are are in the black communities. It's their communities that air seeing these spikes and violence. There's a new poll out that shows the surprising level of support. For Donald Trump in the black community. I got to think this is part of it because Democrats aren't doing anything and it's in these Democrats had cities where the problem exists so I think that is something. Look, if you eat if we have Continued problems on that front, and Democrats and Joe Vine in particular, can't say anything about it for fear of offending the black young people that he's struggling to gain traction with, anyway. And the economy continues to improve. I think we're going to see these Poles go more and more in favor of Donald Trump. I don't think there's an issue. That Democrats have that is as important Yes, co bid Wass and certainly the conversations that Trump had with Bob Woodward in which he Himself a great, you know, basically said he was downplaying the severity of it. That was tremendous fodder for the Democrat. Ah ad campaigns and the campaign. But I don't think that's going to be as meaningful a month from now because that the incidents of Kobe it is definitely declining and the emergence of now to vaccines. That are really kind of almost ready to go Fighters announcement that they might be out in late October. That's really stunning, and it didn't get much traction because it's clearly very beneficial to President Trump. Who orchestrated this enormous push to get a vaccine. So you know Democrats Concezio. They doubt its efficacy or safety or whatever. I think they're going to look pretty stupid if they discourage people from taking a vaccine that could save lives, Liz Peak.

"Bachelor. This is John Baxter show from the surface of the planet Earth. We're going to the surface of the planet Mars. Bob Zimmerman keeps the website behind the Black and the probe is named Insight. It is a stationary surface probe of Mars a robot It has been a revelation these months of covering insight that what looked to be an air turns out to be a major discovery on the surface of planet Mars. This's where human beings will decamp where they will dig where they will spend their lives and the soil of Mars is a revelation. But now The weather station Baba Very good evening to you Brave little inside. What is its original mission? What is it discovered and one about its weather station? Good evening. I mean, first of all, I A. There's not been many great discoveries from inside. I want to emphasize you mentioned made it sound like it's been doing great, brave little robot doing great things That's been basically A more mohr failure than a success. First of all when it was first proposed. It was supposed to launch. Um, two years earlier. And, ah, the, uh, the basic spacecraft. Landau was built by the U. S. But the instruments are going to be built by the French and the Germans. The French were building the size of a media. Uh, Teo. Ah, sense, uh, earthquakes. They couldn't get the job done, so they had a delight. They had to take the job. Firearm. Take the job away from J P l built size with media. Then delay the mission for two months later, the next launch window. The Germans were building the mall that would drill a drill. What is it? 5 m into the ground. To put a heat sensitive. You get the temperature of Ah maws. Basically, the space craft was designed to look at the interior Voss both both for the earthquakes, tremors and also temperatures. And, uh, so the first instrument the French screwed up on the J P l fixed it hopeful fixed it and the second is some of the Germans They did. The small in the mall has been unable to drill and it's just not working. It's been a failure so far, and I might get it to work. But right now it's a total failure. Now there's a third instrument on this is the weather station. They put this on routinely on every land and rover. They goes to Mars because you know this way you get the the atmosphere's conditions at a different spot each time and so middle of August, they suddenly discovered that it stopped. It was, though it was not collecting data off it, Wass it was not able to transmit the data back to Earth. And so now the weather station is down. It's in safe mode. They hope to get it back up. But it's not working. Um the only thing that has come out of insight so far, which is ah, very small percentage. Of what it was supposed to tell us is that there are small earthquakes on Mars. They tend to be the beginning to get some localization of where they are on the planet. But that's about it. And that's not very much. And so This is not really been a very successful mission. I don't know but a detail Bob the Martian soil, Martian stall behaves oddly, they were not ready for it at first, But first I'll tell you this, All right, You know it's an alien place, so you're going to be surprised by things. But the Germans had designed that mole. Ah, when there's not designing the mall, recognizing that the soil might not be like Earth, and so they designed them all like is if the soil would be like Earth, and they were surprised when it wasn't And you're going to his alien planet. You should be better prepared than that. You should be prepared for. Ah, surprises like that. Better prepared. Have some flexibility. I It seems to me It's not been a good design. I would say this, but yes, this is ah, a side discovery not expected. That the that the soil there has densities and make up and structure that was unexpected. Um, but because of the alias and low gravity, That's not a surprise either job, all right, But when you put a shovel into ah into a hole, you expect the whole to get smaller. And this instance there's reason to believe this. The hole will not only get Stay the same. Same. It will push your shovel out. It will push you back. Well, that's uh, well, yeah, All right. So anyway, let's go on. Let's go to the next curiosity. This is a rover on the surface, and Bob is going to do a rover update soon enough, But right now, curiosity has given us a picture of a dust devil. These are good things, right, Bob. This kept opportunity going long past its eyes expiration date because the dust of was cleared off the solar panels. That's correct. In the case of curiosity, it doesn't really matter. They don't they don't depend on solar power. But still you want. This is getting back to the atmosphere. Trey Tracking Dust Devils tells you a great deal about the Martian atmosphere. Its thickness is its activity. It's changes over the season. Well, you know, so when they curious season sitting at one spot for about A month or two because they're doing drilling at this is in the clay unit. It's going to be their last opportunity to drill in the clay unit, so they haven't been moving recently. And so in the process, they used the cameras to take pictures of the atmosphere of the dust. Of the mountains of the surrounding terrain, and in the process, they captured a stable moving across the horizon, and it was so obvious. They didn't even have to enhance the colors and I posted on behind the black is short, Ah movie that they assembled off this and if you look real close, it's like this ghostly white towel moving from the left to the right just above the darkest band of landscape in the image, and it's very cool, which is actually there you could see it. So this is a planet that has activity in motion and curiosity captures it. Not the first time This has happened, but every time it has, it's just, you know, It's like watching the first stage of a Falcon nine land. You can't get enough of it. It's just really cool. It does look like Casper. The ghost Big Brother. Yes, fine. Now we go to the low lands of Mars. Which is a landscape that's all chopped up. Is this wind erosion? Bob that we're looking here? Dune? I haven't the faintest idea. Okay, well, so the image we're talking about, specifically, it's not a post on behind the black cold cracks and scallops in the lowland plains of Mars and you know, it's a cool image is one of these images I posted The lonely lowland plains of Moss. This is a new area called Utopia Plantation, which is, by the way, the same region that Chinese rover is goingto land infected in next year. These planes have enormous evidence of shallow I most images I take him show blah venous squishing it. Ah, lot of softness flushing it, you get the impression impacts. Some craters and other things that you know there is ice very close to the service. Well, this particularly struck me because it doesn't look like that at all. But that looks more like a hard bedrock. And the scallops are something they think form from the sub elimination of underground ice, converting directly.

"I'm John Baxter. This is the John Baxter show. Welcome. Jon Katz. Material of the Cats round table, his conversation with officials and citizens of New York these last hours at Cat's Roundtable that broadcast simultaneously in New York, on Salem Network and also on W A. B. C. The subject matter is upsetting. But those of us who live in Manhattan are ready to face it. Which is the apparent deterioration of the city, especially order during the time of the virus, the city for those who are not here. Is still largely shut down. There's reluctance to return the restaurants do not permit dining inside, but most importantly, security, John a. Very good evening to you your conversation tonight with Deputy Commissioner Miller. Centered on the trouble's on the Upper West Side, a part of the city that is highly desirable. Once upon a time before the virus. There was also a shooting. A murder in front of the whole foods in Harlem and Harlem in the upper West Side are integrated together these many decades of great success. What I learned from your conversation with Mr Miller with Deputy Commissioner Miller is that the city has made it impossible for a balance on the Upper West side because People. Young men, especially who are chemical dependent drug addicted have been put into hotels without adequate services. And suddenly the upper West Side is a place for drug dealers to do business is overwhelmed the neighborhood. Did. Deputy Commissioner offer a remedy for this, John to your ears? Good evening to you. How you John, and we're all very, very much concerned about our city that we all love. You got to remember that New York City was the safest city in the world up to December 31, then that the new laws that the politicians put in place and they took 10,000 prisoners from Rikers Island and put him in the streets of New York put 7000 of them in the cities in New York, the other very significant. I am that you are people should know about our citizens Rudy Giuliani sector Media Day He had 30,000 mentally ill in the hospital's during his administration. Right now. We have 3000. Those people need help. Instead of helping him. We throw on a city in the streets of this city in New York, Tio. It's a problem all New York City finishes I grew up on the Westside. I loved the first sight and I had, I think muffins on the Radio with us. She represents 13,000 Westside liberals that have ah, that has connected together. And it would become a team to to talk about the West side and talk about safety in the West side, and they 99% of them. Voted for glad Geo and they feel that Ah, they will lie to that. And they're not going to make that mistake again s Oh, I You know, I think whether you're Democrat Republican, it doesn't matter. We want safe streets. And I think that's so important. Um, we got to put the criminals that that you are using guns and the criminals. They're using knives and terrorizing our neighborhoods. They belong back in in the writers now commissioned, Miller made an observation. Let the lawyers remember under Blomberg gives a lower that if you've got creating a crime with a gun You go to jail for a minimum of one year, the commissioner says. Well, that Lord still is in effect, except the district attorney's on not prosecuting. In addition, under the new law that you're supposed to let him out on bail. You know anybody that committing a crime with a gun when you end up giving of Ah parking ticket just about a G. Whatever they call it. Daddy's gonna come back to court to say I'm coming back to court to serve by one year in prison. You know you make no no, I I'm especially keen for this weekend, John. The NYPD is concerned because there's generally a spike in holiday weekends. They're finding money in the budget that they do have for overtime. But that shooting in Haarlem warns us what could happen on the Upper West Side. I note that commissioner talked about how the judges and the prosecutors there, not helping because they turn quality of life crimes free. The quality of life enforcement was the way Rooney, Julie I and his police commissioner's tamed the West Side. If you were committing a quality of life crime, you were probably alienated from the community around you, and taking you off the street or depriving you of your freedom was a way of assuring safety That's not now happening, John. In other words, what's happened is all the windows on the Upper West Side are allowing to be broken. They're not stopping it anymore. Well, remember the movie? I think those 13,000 New Yorkers if she described herself as a Westside, right, Democratic, Jewish liberal and going to their windows. Remember the movie opening up the windows man yelling out? We're mad as hell and we can't take it anymore, right? And you know, we've got to make our streets safe again. On one answer was well, it's not gonna happen, so we elect the new mayor in November of 21. And nobody likes that. We also had. Sergeant Mullins represents a sergeant's association on the shoulder. And he says, Well, you know, my men are getting disgusted. Ah, so what's the solution? Ah New York City wants money from the federal government. From Donald Trump. You know, Donald Trump is a businessman, you know, is the most not the most popular guy in New York..

"I'm John Baxter. This is John Baxter Show. I do not follow the National Basketball Association, the MBA. I do not follow much National Football League, the NFL, But I do follow a major league baseball. And these last months have been tremendous turmoil in baseball because of the virus, and then With the tragedy in Minnesota, followed by the protests, followed by the violence problem, followed by the unknowns of threats, for example against members of Congress when they were leaving the president's speech last week at the end of the Republican National Convention. I have become lost as to what the complaint is or what the complaints are by these professional organizations towards well, what are they protesting? And who is the object of the protest? Andrew McCarthy National View Online and thirties Makarov American greatness her to help me Sort this out, they know considerably more about The N B A and the N F l than I do. 30 asses Very good Detroit fan and I'm sure the Andy has his favorites in the NFL in the N B. A. But I do not. So I've I regard myself as disqualified to comment here, but In general Andy, you've written a column about the N ba getting into Paula getting involved in politics these last days. That is not the role of an actor. I mean, they aren't thes. Very fancy actors. Isn't this a stage set that they're on to entertain people? It is puzzling to me why they want to get involved in politics. Since it takes a lifetime to sort it out. And even then we're not sure why did they do this? Well, John, I think it's because they're it's fashionable to do it. They want to be seen as social justice icons. They have enough wealth now compared tto the kind of money they used to make back when that they have a wholenother existence outside the playing field, and I don't actually begrudged them. Uh or anybody else their political views, and if they can find a forum to express them, that's an appropriate one. And they have people who are interested in what they think That's fine. But I think that the game itself Ought to be sacrosanct from politics and the attraction of sports. For all of us. Follow sports is that the game is a celebration of our love of sport and competition, and it's our retreat are Oasis. Politics and if the players are going to turn it into a place where a captured audience for a brand of politics that at least half the country Reject. I think they're very quickly going to find that sports is a whole lot less popular. That is It really is a problem, isn't it? Andy? I mean, you go to go watch a play. You don't want to see politics injected into there. So part of the problem is these athletes kind of like Bruce Springsteen trying to say is blue collar and sing about blue collar. The themes of the very time you know he's rich living in a mansion out in Hollywood or wherever, and it's about the street credibility of the athletes from the community from which they came from second, understand the pressure on them to make that point. But again, don't they risk alienating people who just don't care about your politics? I want to go somewhere to get away from that Because most people understand the politics is part of life. Politics is not life. Yeah, I think that's exactly right. And it reminds me 30 if you remember when, when Michael Jordan was in his heyday as a zoo basketball store for the Chicago Bulls. Aunt. He almost single handedly turned 19 into a huge multibillion dollar international conglomerate. And he got a lot of pressure when he was the best player in basketball about why he wasn't participating in a lot of the social justice causes and political debate to the day and his simple response to that he's reportedly People who know him. He's a He's a progressive in terms of this political orientation. But his response when he was pushed on that was Republicans by shoes, too. And I think that's a good thing for all of them to bear in mind. I wonder if we if we got in trouble when Babe Ruth said he had a better year than Herbert Hoover. I wonder if that was the first moment went when politics and sports got mixed up, although I don't think anybody ever took Babe Ruth to be A political activist. The puzzle here also, though, because again I'm ignorant of the N B A in the NFL. The puzzle here also is Thies air professional organizations with franchises that are worth a great deal of money. And our monopolies. In most instances, I don't remember the law. But there's some exception that allows them to operate as if they represent the city when in fact, they're they're they're high profit centers. Don't they? Isn't that something? We're wondering into Andy that that they're no longer as they're no longer deserving of this monopoly free life they're living and that Half the electorate could turn against them. Yeah, I think that's I think that's exactly right, John And as you described that it also occurred to me that there's something about modern politics that I find unsavory that's now bleeding over into sports. And and it is that it's kind of this age of micro campaigning and micro politicking. So it used to be in politics. The idea was you. You have this big old country and you try to draw as many people as you can. To your side by appealing to them, And then somewhere along the line, somebody decided that the way to win elections was not to do that, but rather to appeal to your base. And stoke up your base and get high participation at your base at the expense of the rest of the country, and that that was the way to win elections, and I think what's happening in sports? Is these guys see themselves as kind of a social phenomenon. Of a certain distinctive part of the population rather than something that's enjoyed by everyone and the N B. A. In particular wants to appeal. I think To a particular part of the population rather than the population writ large. I mean, they obviously like to be appealing to everyone, but they want to be seen as fashionable. Within a community that is that is by defining itself as extremely progressive and, you know, having a certain a number of political and social Attitudes, and they think that's the way to be popular. I think they're wrong about that. That is the last comment to you. Does this mean that we that we're gonna have a bad NFL season? If they all go political on this? Lori always going to have a bed NFL season when But the reality is his. And he was talking about Look, the very people who claim to be the most inclusive are the most exclusive people you ever wanted me. Thatis McCotter. American greatness. Andrew McCarthy National View Online. What's left of the baseball season. We can enjoy it. I'm John.

"John Baxter. This is John Tic tac. Tic Tac is an app. It's for shopping. It directs its attention, mostly to young people, but at this point, it's in the consideration of the old ones that would be China and the United States and other interested parties. A such as Microsoft, the latest on TIC tac. China announces new export rules that could prevent sale of TIC TAC Microsoft, WalMart and Oracle are all vine by Tic Tac's U. S operations. First graph China has announced new export restrictions for artificial intelligence technology that could complicate bite dances, plans to sell off the U. S operations of his wildly popular tic tac app. The Trump Administration has ordered by tends to spin off its U. S operations or shut them down by November. Gordon Chang at Gordon Gee, chang and we're joined by Brandon Weichert of the Y Could report Brendan, I come to you because You're a lot closer in age than I am to the people who seem to have a fever for Tic tac. What is it about this? That's different than every other shopping app. What What can you do with tic tac that you can't do with Amazon? Good evening to you, Brandon. Well, good evening, And thanks for having me. It's the I think it's the kind of the personal connective iti you can. You can change and Taylor your your use of tic tac in a way that you can't do an Amazon. You could do videos, you, Khun. You can have funny little skits. You and your friends do it appeals to people who are even younger than made because of sort of the banality of of the app, and it's very interactive and use your friendly and so it's sort of. It's all the hallmarks of that that very important 18 to 25 year old demographic. Understand Gordon. This as the U. S is going to shut down operations in November. Let's buy dance A sells it now, Gordon. What Brendan just described seems harmless. What's the threat? The threat. John is that TIC Tac has been used to surveil American users without their knowledge on. Also, there are allegations that software has been downloaded onto user's phone surreptitiously, but also the most important thing, though, and this gets rarely talked about Is that Beijing apparently can manipulate the tic tac algorithm so as to influence people politically, It's not just a question of what you shop. It's a question of how you vote. So Tic Tac has a very sophisticated artificial intelligence that encouraged that sends the curates videos so that people will be motivated to act in certain ways. Give you an example. On the Tulsa rally that President Trump held in June. People who were anti Trump used TIC TAC to start and to propagate a campaign to reserve seats, which they had no intention of using. Tic tac was able to curate those videos so it would send them to people who would be inclined to do the same thing, Brandon, we're talking about a Trojan pony here. Okay, fine. I get that right Is China is China's headlines here suggests that it's going to In some fashion prevent Tic tac from selling off its its U. S operations. Now, Trump says he's going to shut it down. China says no, we're goingto consider before you can sell. Tic tac is it looks to me like Tic Tac's The loser from both sides. How does it look to you, Brandon? Yeah, basically part of the deal that they want that American launches. Tic Tac is gonna have to hand over their source code, which is sort of the Holy Grail. Ah, and that's one of the sticking points and I think the reason it's one of the big sticking points. Is because exactly as I have said before to you, and as Gorby just alluded to. Ah, this APP is a Trojan horse. And so they don't want to be caught with their cookie in the your hand in the cookie jar, And so I think that the China's basically gonna play tug of war with us, and you're right. It's not a good position to be in if you're tic tac because you're going to get hosed. Either way, you're gonna lose market share. In America on your going, obviously lose sort of that ability to surveil on. If you don't do what America wants you you're going to be losing your market share anyway. And so it's It's not a good position to be in Gordon Gordon as I recall after the PRC aggression of the Himalayas. Wasn't tic tac part of the apse that were banned from India didn't hip Ticktock Ticktock get kicked out. Just did when India band I think 59 or 58. AP Tech talk was one of them. And therefore tic Tac is losing everywhere Now. The puzzle here, Gordon. The puzzle for me is Is this where China wants? Does China want digitals nationalism? Because China's the loser here it doesn't get access to India or the United States. And if you're making money on shopping, that's where you want to be. Of course, China wants tick talk to be able to penetrate India. First of all, It's very lucrative for bite dance, which means it's lucrative for China. But also they get to surveil Indian users and get to manipulate them as we talked about and so being shut out of India is a big blow for tic tac and being shut out of the U. S would be an even bigger blow. So right now, Tic Tac is At risk at a number of different places, Brandon because this is about Microsoft, Oracle WalMart Cesar big as simply 500 companies and if China shuts them out, don't they go and create their own opportunities here? Doesn't this create a vacuum in our market? Tic tac could easily have an imitator correct. Well, yes. And in fact that could be you know, you could see the reverse of what's been going on in China happening here a TTE same time. So you know Eric Schmidt from Google has been warning about the splinter net. The rise of, you know, implicated Internet. As I've argued, since 2019. We've already seen that and we see this in China actually would love that because that would give them more control over their near abroad. In Asia, Asia is the largest market share. It's a hugely lucrative, robust market and the Chinese love tohave a dominance over that market share. And so we need to be cognizant of that, and Yeah, You could be seeing imitators rising here, and that's not necessarily a bad thing per se for us, But we do need becomes that as we do the couple, we're gonna need to also be aware that we don't want to lose our access to that Asian market because China's going trying to push us out. As as were the couple in Gordon. We chat is another app. I believe that India band is that next for Ah, ah, digital nationalism. Well, President Trump When he issued his order on Tic Tac issued a companion order on we chat, which was essentially given them 45 days to cease operations in the United States. So, yes, the two are comparable. We also got to remember that we chat has been surveilling users as well. So there's a national security component to both the weak chat and the tic tac bands. And other app sous. Well, Gordon..

If you like any social status in Boston, you see he didn't rank a za Freeman of the city in the way that he had in London. He couldn't automatically vote in elections on DH for religious point of view, he couldn't automatically join a church, Iva because he had to pass a kind of test of holiness for many years. Absolutely right. I think he didn't accept re a communion until the 16 nineties nicely. This is an important element in the Franklin story, having been striving, ambitious, successful people in Britain. On arrival in America. They actually had to take a step down. I think that made them all the more ambitious. There's so many details here we get immediately to Franklin's birth. What is striking is that Franklin is born of elder parents at the time. Josiah is 49 Anne is 38. Of picking the 21st century. That's a senior parents for a son. So he's the youngest of a brood on he will come to depend upon his brother's, but he's born into early 18th century Boston. He's born with a gift. Ah, precociousness that is extraordinary. As if he could read immediately. I see him as a child wandering around reciting things to his parents. However, what's keen here is that he's going to be influenced by his family. First of all the place they grew up next to a place called the Millpond decided it and Franklin learned to swim Who taught him We don't know who taught him, but he seems to take into the water very, very readily, and he loved swimming. Hey, loved messing about with which is extraordinary routines. Not in Boston. It seems it seems in Boston. It was quite common, but he loved messing about in boats. And indeed, he conducted his first scientific experiment on the pond by lying on his back and swimming across the palm with with a kite in his hand. His Uncle Benjamin Senior will arrive when Franklin is nine years old, 10 years old in 17 15. This is very important for Benj for Franklin's education. What do we need to know about Ben Sr. The uncle because he comes after a sadness. I think he's lost. His wife was very sad story. Uncle Benjamin had lost his wife and almost all of his Children 10 and they lost. He's suffered a series of breathers or two. He suffered a series of bereavement, and he'd also lost all his money he had failed in business is as a dire and a trader and silken in London. But he was a very, very talented man. He wrote Some poems the great cycle of poems, which is still available in manuscript in American Archive collection. He was very, very literate man, very politically aware. Developed by way of his religion, and he was someone I think you came to excite exercise quite a profound influence on his name. He lived with the family for four years, and this is one. Franklin was 9 to 13 somewhere in there, and Franklin was keen on and they had the same name so that that's happy. ATT. This point. I'm circling a couple of names that become important to the family, Daniel Defoe. He has you've mentioned the primary has a primer and they Franklin learns to learn from Dafoe. But there's also something here about descent. Their doubt is in the family. In some fashion, deism has arrived, arrived and I wrote down this term Newtonian Christianity. I don't know where I got it from. Probably. You know, Newton and Christianity were in the household together. Did they go together? Well, Franklin read about Newton's physics when he was very young in his by the time he was about 16 or so he already was familiar with the basic principles on it. What was really happening, Wass that in England, the religious situation was becoming very much more complex, great. Many divisions between there's wings If you like of the different Christian churches on DH, there were an element within the church, both the Anglican Church and the dissenting churches. Who did indeed, try to kind of reconstruct Christianity on the basis of Newton science. That was an important element and, frankly became familiar with that very young. On the other hand, there are other people with far more traditional, their outlook. And so there were controls his disagreements in London, which swiftly got transmitted over to America in the Franklin family. Now, the Franklin family is Industrias. They value labor. And they value skills. The brother James, the older brother James decides to become a printer is that is that a fresh technology T choose in the early 18th century in Boston, where there were a number of printers in Boston? There had been a newspaper back in about 16 90. But what James did was very, very shrewd was to go to London. He had to go to London to buy his apparatus, his printing equipment, But he also while he was there appears to be immersed himself in the kind of journalism the British that the English did. And so what James was able to do was to bring back to Boston, the kind of journalistic innovation that was going on in the mother country, and that really became his kind of mission to transmit that to America and produce his own. Newspaper, The New England current The New England current is Where Franklin Benjamin Franklin, our hero, He will be apprenticed to his older brother. And apprentice had contracts. Jewel obligations, toe work for so many years and you couldn't be arbitrary about it. Otherwise you become a runaway, and when we come back, we're going to tell the story of Benjamin Franklin discovering The fact that he's not only a large, healthy, extremely precocious person. He's also a person who is going to become gifted with what we now understand his journalism and To be a columnist. The book is young Benjamin Franklin. The birth of ingenuity and wit. Nick Bunker is the author. I'm John Bachelor. This is the John Baxter. What matters.

"I'm John Baxter. This is the John Baxter Show the Wonderful Richard's axes here with celebration of Mark Twain, an enormous amount of work that Richard's done to take the notes and the memoirs and the letters. Much of it is not printed or You have to piece together because it's not in the final books because Olivia's standing there reading at night making sure that mark that her Sam Sam Clemens doesn't upset the family honor anymore than he already has, by wasting all their money and his money and everybody's money, and the whole world knows he's poor. All right, we're going to get him to Europe. They they stop in South Africa. He gets in trouble with Cecil Rhodes Big deal You'll have to reach in the book because it's funny. We're on the London and they're arriving in the heat of August in London, and they're going to take a house and they still haven't piled their way out of debts. And now comes the tragedy. Susie Clemens is stayed back in New York, and she's a 23 year old woman. Very highly strung. What happens to her? Why does she? Why does she declined so quickly? Richard Decline is in dire to decline as in die. What happens to her that all? Well, first, I just need one little detail that they get on their spots. The daughters have been cabled to come over. And then they get the climate. Liv E. In Sam. Mark Twain. Get a cable back that there's been a delay and Livy instantly senses the worst thinks that Susie must be sick. And they board a ship and they're crossing the Atlantic. When Mark Twain gets word that his daughter Susie has died, And how did she die so quickly? What do we know the spinal meningitis and it It's not clear exactly how she caught it. But she declined very quickly. And what's the worst for Mark Twain is he's alone. He never handled being alone. Well at all. He's alone in a rented house in a in a suburb on in England and his wife is in the middle of the ocean. And then there is no technology in that era for him to reach her. So he knows that she's going to in three or four days. See her brother like crying on the docks, either. They're they're friend who's a minister weeping on the dock toe Having to tell her that Susie has died, and he just he's just overwrought is the actual scene is even more horrible because they don't get to the ship while it's in quarantine, and Clara When she visits. The captain sees a headline that her sister's dead. And so she has to tell her mother, right, And that's the moment you believe that Livi started her decline. I D'oh D'oh, and there's there's It's not really clear that Livia ever completely got her her joy and life back. I mean, they're moments that you can see later, but this is the decline and and she would be dead eight years later. I mean, seven years later, Olivia's a young and beautiful woman. There's a photograph in the book of her in her forties. She wass, eh? Bells bell in her twenties when Mark telling married or in 18 70 he adored her, and she adored him and apart. They were not. They were not stable together. They could travel around the world. But this blow of losing their oldest daughter, Susie. They'd lost their son, Langdon when he was 19 months old. That was an experience of the 19th century that family's dealt with, but losing Susie without ever seeing her again overwhelmed him and Clara Clara. Let's speak well of her. She lives into the 19 sixties, Richard and she's the one who is thie. She's the she's a perfect combination of her mother and father. She has She has an ironic I, but at the same time, she protects the family's honor, right, And she also basically had a lot of trouble being in the same room with her father. After awhile, she realized for self preservation. It was perhaps better Teo to live in Europe when he lived in New York. All right, let's pay the debts because that was the reason for the journey. Now Richard has included an enormous amount of detailed accounting for us to watch the debts back page. Me longer than anything else in the book, but I I thought I was taking notes. All the time is they're paying the debts off by the time they get to England. Libby Living is keeping counts because she knows that Mark could misleader of she lets him just be generally by the time they haven't paid it off in in England, But by the time they get to Switzerland for the summer, she believes that there that they have now achieved on ability to pay their creditors off. But not you. Not without Roger's Richard. He's the hero of this book, The hero and it's so great that you that you see that because he really is he. He is the calm mastermind of Tween strategy to pay off his debts, because actually, the lecture tour paid off. You know, it's arguable what number it is, but maybe it's half maybe whatever number it is. But what saved Twain with his complete works edition. And Twain had two rival publishers who weren't even speaking to each other, who are furious with lists and Harper's Bliss and Harper's, and they never would have agreed on a deal, and Roger said that if he had on Ly Worked in publishing he he never would have been in business. You would have killed himself. He just couldn't believe how difficult it was to make thes men. This is a man who put together a Malcolm made a copper. You understand? This is a master dealer. But publishing director Richard and I both have survived. Publishing were aware of the fact that Rogers finally figured it out. Okay, Fine. Now, Livy will lead of leave us. Jeanne will die on Christmas 1909 But I want to pay attention to paying off all these debts because you've done such a wonderful job. At the moment the debts were paid off. He's off on other schemes, Richard. It's just like you have to chain him to the wall before he gives money away. Reader scream when they turn that chapter page and see at the top and then and then, he said, I've reeled in a big fish today, literally, almost to the day that he knew he paid the debts off. He started looking for a new.

"I'm John Baxter. This is John Baxter Show from the surface of Planet Earth were landing again on the surface of the planet Earth with Bob Zimmerman. He keeps the website beyond the black. And I mentioned that Bob has a thank you to his subscribers and listeners for the Happy birthday month of July. It is now Happy birthday plus August and we have much to do tonight but first Bob. Your listeners and our audience are very generous people. Good evening to you, but they sure I mean, you know, the fundraiser for July is over. But it was the most successful twice over to anyone I've done in the past. And I think that's appropriate for the 10th anniversary of the website, so I've gotta once again. I did it last week, but I'll say it again. I lost CMO. Thank your lips, your listeners. For their generosity. Ah was really appreciated. It allows me to keep being my grumpy self. John Yes. Douglas, Douglas Hurley and Robert Benton. Who are they? Their astronaut. Stay a NASA employed astronauts. NASA hired the company space X to be able to put these guys upto Isis and bring them home. Uh, Space six had launched its endeavor capsule a den Deva Dragon capsule. Two months ago, and this past weekend and Deva came home. I'm using the term in Denver. That's the name they gave to this particular capsule by the astronauts once they launch, so even though to Dragon Capsule, the Dragon Absolutely first to the Ah The capsule, A ll the capsules that space six makes, But this one is particularly named Endeavor, and it's important to note that I'll get toe. Why even way they landed peaceably very nicely in the Gulf of Mexico. Space six very brilliantly. Has set it up so that they can who land on either side of Florida and the ocean gives them options. If there's a hurricane on one side, they go to the other. That's what they did here. Um, They actually have two ships for doing this so they could go one place to the other very easily. They landed. They were picked up Really nice. One of the fun things about this during watching the landing was that Uh, this was public. It's fry. It's also outside the 12 mile limit and so and it's close to the show, though, because they want to get these guys back quickly on DSO, a whole bunch of flow. Tele of private boats came out to watch. And once they got says that they didn't come close, they stayed back until the capsule was pulled up was was getting close to the ship. And it was under control. And then you started to see both fly by that were you know tourists basically watching. And at one point they they must have Ah, Bull on the message, please back off, so you could see that there almost like social distance distance in a line watching this happen anyway, they got out of the ship. Everything's fine. They got back. About why I want to use the term endeavor for this particular dragon capsule. The reason is that NASA has already determined that this capsule is going to fly again, or I should say Space six wants to fly it again, and NASA's agreed to it. And so the not the next manned mission in late September, but the spring manned mission. Uh, is going to fly this capsule again? So therefore endeavor is it's a ship. It's going to fly more than once, and it has a name so we should use it. It's endeavor. The coolest part of that is that on that flight is going to carry four astronauts, one of whom will be Meghan Mukasa, who is the wife of Bob Benton, who just came home. And what's even more cool is that she probably will be sitting in the same spot that he was on this flight. And I think that's just really cool John and tells you the future is here. What is the expectation of how many times a dragon can be recycled? Ah, that's a good question, John. Um, I think I've heard numbers as much as 10 times. But I could be wrong about that. I do know that would stay sexist plan is is to But when they make a decision that I can fly it for Amanda mission again, they will then use it for cargo missions and Ah, and then they'll give the cue more flights that way. These are not ships. You know, these are the prototypes. And even though that reusable they're not like planes or ships that we expect to work forever, but for a very long time, so they're going to be replaced regularly until we learn more, but that's where they are, and they're much safer because of that. Bob. We're going to the Russians now, and there's an old saying It sounds better in Russian. Don't get between a Russian and his money okay for Russia enjoyed money the bounty of NASA for many years because it was the only way Congress left. NASA to connect to the SYS. That's no longer true. We just evidence that with Dragon endeavor, so one of the Russians doing with the empty seats. Ah, well, they you know they were flying tourists back before NASA depended on them to fly. When that's arrived, Mass, NASA was paying them more money and they could they could really hold. They had necessary to the fire, so they keep raising the price to really ungodly amounts. They used to charge 20 million for tourists by the fight by the last contract with NASA. They were charging 90 million per seat. 20 million versus 90 well once NASA came along, though, the Russians did not have any spare seats to sell tourists so there haven't been any tourist flights for a very long time. Well, now that NASA is no one going to be buying these flights of Russia is immediately trying to get tourists back on this fast feet..

"I'm John Baxter. This is John Baxter Show. I welcome my colleague, Dr Henry Miller, a physician. At the Pacific Research Institute. Henry has been my guide through these many months of mystery over the virus. And these last hour hours, Henry a very good evening to you. This is not just a political response to the virus. This is also about future. This is political reporting in California. With the district's declaring Monday that in person learning will not resume in the fall. That, of course, is profound consequences not just for the students, but her parents, teachers, administrative staff and an economic recovery. That depends in part. One working parents being able to put their kids in school for a few hours, Henry a. Very good evening to you. This is not just a political response to the virus. This is also I believe if I follow the reporting carefully enough This is also the mystery that The Morales gist and the medical teams have not solved which is Children. Especially under 18 Children and the virus to my understanding in the reporting of these last weeks and one that you sent me in specific This is a quandary for everyone, including the CDC. Is that correct? Henry? There's still gathering data about Children and the virus. Good evening to you. Good evening, John. You know that This is a quandary, its scientific quandary and ah public policy quandary. Because a CZ the UM pediatrics professional group has said it's important for education and for social development to get kids. Back into schools. Ah, And yet, others said with some justification that we don't want to put kids in what amounts to Ah ah, an institutional Petri dish. Where were covert 19 is going to be passed around the way that the common cold and flu are passed around during the wintertime. So, um, and our knowledge about the susceptibility of kids to the Corona virus. And whether they can be spreaders and transmitted even if they're a symptomatic is really pretty incomplete, So it's a very, very difficult, uh, conundrum. The reporting I'm following here is from medium I read. On July 4th, Florida reported a record high number of cases among Children age 19 and younger in Oregon. Cases among Children younger than 10 grew fivefold during June. Texas reports that the number of cases is rising among kids attending daycare. Now the puzzle, Henry is that we We need to talk about something called viral load and shedding a viral low, which you've guided me to understand these many months is significant because it explains somewhat why some people get the virus and some people don't why they're super spreaders in there, people who are not super spreaders. Our Children. It has been suggested in the past do not have much viral load, and therefore it is difficult to catch or to get infected from a child. But I see from this reporting that's changing because the early explanations that are now regarded as early is that correct. Not that that is true, And there was a small recent study by in Switzerland very small study of only a dozen kids who had symptoms of Corona virus. And they had a viral load, which is the amount of virus in their systems. Quantitative of virus. Hi and virus shedding patterns that were similar to those of adults. So when at least when kids become sick with the Corona virus. They have a lot of virus and they can shed it and transmit the infection. So that's another caveat about Sending kids to school, particularly if there isn't a quick social distancing and if they're exempt from wearing masks. In New York. The remedy so far if I understand it, and they change all the time is the governor. Has indicated that school that he vows safe's the decision by the mayor of New York City to open the public schools in the fall with a part time schedule..

"I'm John Baxter this is a job that show I welcome earth with three one two three prototypes for the starship the big left it's going to take us to the heavenly body Bob three prototypes I know that SpaceX's extravagant but they're building three prototypes I remember one recently disintegrated in some fashion Boca chica why yes what Y. three what are they looking for good evening to you good evening hello the prototypes to word prototypes we built a prototype you're building it to test to figure out what works and what doesn't then you rebuild it with another prototype and you don't lock down your design in the early stages of design work you do lots of prototypes testing the design things so they they they in Boca chica they have an assembly line that will be working right now and they are built they have built three prototypes originally numbered five through seven and five and six are essentially full scale prototypes starship and they are hopefully now going to be a they they put it on your own content many tests may blow ups of previous prototypes that he's a five to seven so that means one through four blew up central he and they're testing but each time they've done it they've they've I think they've got a better handle on the issues and the odds of blow ups coming in I can go down well anyway so five and six practice to do it tests and maybe the first initial hops of the of the starship first top is supposed to be about five hundred meters fifteen hundred feet the second one would be would be at twelve miles in the air then vertically land again at Boca chica the seventh prototype is not really a full prototype of starship they've actually we designed it for a different purpose it's shorter but it's being used to test a new ally for using for the whole they be using this is this is a different stat stainless steel alloy and they want to test that they they're looking at how the previous alloys they're working and you know that is one of the reasons they blow it up personalized so they're trying to different alloy of steel to see if this would get the data results and it seems to be the case they also have indications that they are now researching bill of creating their own wildlife of steel the specifically designed for what they need to do and this just demonstrates SpaceX's agile way of doing things the correct way they are then they're not locking down the design even in terms of all their testing different steel to see if they can prove the design in the system perfect so everything goes well the next few months will be very exciting because they will be flying some of these prototype your mention of alloys reminds me of B. grade science fiction movies have enjoyed over the years where when the alien space capsule lands on earth and our science heroes got a hold of it there's always a statement about we never recognize an ally like this it seems to be impenetrable from our yes yes it is a great team from the day the earth stood still the plastic that surrounds the robot it's made of some kind of clear material that we've we've never seen before that many times one one that is I recommended to everybody I know is black and white but pretend it's in color and you'll enjoy it all right now SpaceX's hiring and so this has to do with starship John when when you are most first announced his case concept of starships back in what six sixteen twenty sixteen he said he wanted to do point to point transportation with it not just go to bars but since it will be completely reusable like an airplane there's no reason it can't take off vertically and land vertically and shorten the trip around Europe significantly and to do that he said we're going to have to build floating platform space sports where people will because it's just too big to to land you don't you can't put this they support a lot of different places so and he said a lot of those faces well SpaceX is now made in and admit issued advertisements looking for two engineers to help build build offshore floating space supports full launching starship superheavy slant this is a this is actually not really that cutting edge technology we have C. launch which was a platform to launch rockets but they were very small rockets this will be a much bigger platform it will also have to be something that passengers can be brought to and transported to issue you know to a plane to the the ship so that's coming soon but they're doing it so this is this is moving forward on that concept and not kind of full dental around it's really cool pop it's a really good idea I mean you know all of this is a combination of marketing and engineering it's yeah yeah and and it was always available so NASA had to go through it's a discovery phase in the Cold War so that we got SpaceX sees the grandchildren of Nassar's I'm now want to go to the great grand children astra NASA this is astro what disaster Bob the company is trying to become one of those is a start up it's a small sat rocket company building a small rockets to put kids sets up a little bit they were kind of a stealth company being trapped themselves very very quiet we talked about them in the in the in the spring because they're competing on a top four top or ward if they could get a launch off within two weeks they failed they they had a call launch scrubbed a launch from fifty three seconds before launch and that meant they could win the top or war and so they have now rebuilt and they announced this week that they are now scheduling the next launch attempt for July twentieth the window starting the twentieth to the twenty fifth and this will be in Alaska that's for the launch will be and they hope is to get this as a successful launch to all day if they succeed they will learn leap ahead of virgin orbit as the second smallest sat rocket company and that's operational following rocket lab now they admit that this is actually a three launch program testing programs the the for they they they're quite honestly don't think the first launch will work or at least there as they they would be surprised if fails so they have three launches to get going and assess this plant so stay tuned this just means you know the race to be to get that market of John diet market of CubeSats is designed the whole unit who will do something about this it reminds me of the hardy boys books you know and do you know the secret rocket base and let's sneak in and see if we can solve the crime and the I said there's something magical about it Bob which is let's N. instead of Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney starting out in the dad's barn to raise money for the high school these guys just got together and decided to have a rocket company of their own Alaska let's point out something to this John this is just simply going back to the box on the mental American roots of freedom if people get an idea and they push it and back when.
