"A stalemate. But what about human rights did biden. Make any more headway on that issue. I'm dr ian von. Yeah daughter of alexei navalny one of our top local rivals a week before the biden meeting the geneva summit on human and democracy gave it's twenty twenty one moral courage award to russian opposition leader. Alexey navalny his daughter. Doria accepted the award on behalf. It's a big honor for my father and everyone who supports what he's doing. It's an important sign of recognition and it means that the world cares biden says he talked to putin about navalny and would continue to do so but that didn't change putin's take on his opponents jail sentence. He insisted navalny went abroad to seek medical treatment of his own accord violating his parole in fact navales family transported him to germany in a coma after he'd been poisoned with a soviet era. Nerve agent in an interview with cnn. The day after the summit novell chief-of-staff leonid volkov said putin's bald faced. Lie may have been intentionally farfetched. I'm lying what will you do to. Maybe this was exactly the message he wanted to deliver. Putting doesn't know such things as like compromise race roussev button red lines for the only news of he could do with a hurons and he's good to go away but he does and the still still be like talking about strong condemnation grave concerns. This member of the russian opposition in moscow agrees. We're not using his name to protect his safety. Russian government and putin see it as a victory since two thousand fourteen. Russia became an outcast for the western countries and it was really important for putin to show That west still sees him as an equal alleged leader. He said the summit ended up striking a blow against the russian opposition because it made putin feel stronger. He realizes that he can do everything. And then the time will pass. Us will forget everything and try to restart in their relationships during the obama presidency once and it looks like it is happening again. In the last months moscow has cracked down harder than ever on the opposition movement. New laws make even associating with navan. These group a retroactive crime that means hundreds of thousands of citizens are liable for investigation and it effectively eliminates competition for september's parliamentary elections at the same time putin has clamped down on independent media. Outlets like radio free europe radio liberty. They are now required to label their content as from a foreign agent or face stiff fines. Some opposition leaders fear putin interpreted the summit as a signal that the west will let him finish off the opposition with no consequences. Leonid volkov says one thing could deter putin from further abuses freezing his assets abroad putting this kind of trying to increase his exchange fund to get like more hostages also american citizens and russian political prisoners to kiss that's in billions of dollars at he's stashed abroad of his told from russian taxpayers.

"Way to the summit, President Biden expressed concern about a Russian opposition leader, Alexei Navalny is back in prison. He returned there after a hunger strike and hospitalization. Biden said of Navalny should die in prison. It would be quote another indication that Russia does not abide by human rights. NPR's Noel King spoke with of all these chief of staff Leonid Volkov. How is his health today? The only good news that we have is that there are no baking. You sure he has recovered after the hunger strike in a prison hospital and on his purest, the June force He has been transferred back to the panel colony where the strike started. So far his health condition is stable. Russia's President Vladimir Putin, did an interview with NBC News this week and the interviewer Kier Simmons. Asked, basically is not only going to survive in prison, Vladimir Putin answered through an interpreter. And here's that exchange. Will you commit that You will in personally assure that election of only will leave prison alive. I proceed from the premise that the person that you have mentioned the same kind of measures will apply. Not in any way worse than to anybody else who happens to be in prison. Okay, so notably Vladimir Putin does not use Alexey Navalny's name there, he says. The person that you have mentioned, he says the outcome for him wouldn't be much different from anybody who goes into a Russian prison. Do you think Vladimir Putin would let Alexey Navalny die in prison? Well, first of all, Vladimir Putin didn't see No, The fact of never mentioned collection of only by name. This is something Cal flick voodoo call. If that someone really kind of instruct Mr Putin never to mention Let's see no only by name in some mystical way now. I am quite optimistic about Alex is trade because now when the world news and follows that Alex and Joanie is in President Putin's custody being his personal prisoner, I think this takes up too high for putting just to let him die, Zer, but if the focus of international attention Feet to be. Then, of course, Putin will repeat his attempts to get rid of his main upon if he were to die in prison. What do you imagine the reaction in Russia would be I prefer not to take a priority. I'm sorry, but I have to say that seemed like the remarks that the American State Department has delivered. If not only dies, President Putin will face severe repercussions at the better discuss what we could do in Russia not to let him die suit. That's why, for instance, we are advocating for personal sanctions against putting money when we are talking into Western politicians, and that's why we Are asking all our supporters to participate in our tactical voting against the upcoming Duma elections in September, which could also be used as a tool for deterrence. You've been in Washington, D. C meeting with officials at the State Department and lawmakers before President Biden meets with Vladimir Putin. What have you been asking American officials to do? Well, I wasn't a mission initiated and inspired by election of only himself to deliver some policy point. Some policies, suggestions and the most important one. That there is no such thing as a Rousset button. They all prefer to deal with these people who know how to compromise. But Vladimir Putin is not such a person, and the only way to talk to him is to build leverage. And in our opinion, this leverage now exists on the American side. There was a potential sanctions against students own assets against his old girlfriends and also a political leverage because Putin very much needs this picture of him like Shaking hands was Biden to sell to Russian waters because of the upcoming Duma elections. In just three months. The United States has been putting sanctions on Russian individuals since at least the Obama administration and Vladimir Putin is still doing what Vladimir Putin does. He has not changed his behavior. Why would we believe that sanctions work? We didn't ever see sanctions against individuals who would be vulnerable. They had some symbolic importance, of course, but the we're not painful at all. The all know the President Putin is very much money grieving. And, of course, you hardly could find a bank account labeled Vladimir Putin anywhere in the world. But I am pretty sure that like American Treasury knows there are bank accounts of his older friends who our nominee holders of his assets. Every burdens of all, and these could really created a lot of leverage if his assets are being targeted. I'd like to follow up on the parliamentary elections coming up in September. In Russia. This may offer Vladimir Putin an opportunity to tighten his grip on power even further. Your organization cannot run for office because you have been labeled an extremist network. If you are not part of what is ostensibly a democratic process. What are your options? You mentioned it's living where Putin wants to tighten his grip, but that's not possible. His Greep is as tight as it could be. He possesses older money, all the power everything in the country like now we have 450 members of the Parliament of the State Duma, and there is not a single dissidents there. And this makes them very nervous. Like imagine you have already won all the chips and still you're forced to play all in. And that's why Putin is trying to eliminate all the possible potential strip from server beginning to doing crazy things like, for instance. Completely out, flowing our political organizations and disenfranchising from being on the bullet, And still we have an answer. See our strategy, which is called smart forwarding. It's the in every district. We identify some candidate who Paul doesn't belong to our movement. He's probably also quite a bad guy. No good guys will be allowed to participate. But still someone who has the best possible chances to defeat the incumbent. You know, as a trash member of Parliament MP support them. They endorsing the asked all our supporters to vote for them, which real hopefully make the national Parliament much more turbulent and competitive. There's going to be competition among the bad guys. But even such a competition is much better than a complete lack of competitions at three Enjoy now. Landed Volkov, chief of staff to opposition leader Alexey Navalny, Thank you so much for taking the time today. Thank you so much. It's been my pleasure..

"While on the Russian side, you have the same delegation pretty much from President Putin. Down the same delegation that was in Helsinki. The U. S team is totally different. President Biden is indeed a very different president. He has signaled he wants to cut the drama. He wants a stable, predictable relationship that that is the term that White House officials keep saying they want to define the relationship going forward. And to set that tone here in Geneva today. Uh, you know, the question is how Biden will hold Putin to account in a way. That former President Trump did not on cyber attacks on election interference. Biden is going to tell Putin knock it off, and what we wait to see is any sign that President Putin is inclined to listen to that. Does the US have leverage here? That's what we're waiting for.

Yesterday we also talked about the impact that ensures playing this potentially making companies more willing to pay ransoms because they know they'll be covered however insurance companies seem to be making moves so that might not be the case or at least it won't be that easy. The financial times ran a story called cyber. Insurers recoil as ransomware attacks skyrocket according to the peace from april to mid may premiums jumped twenty seven percent year over year. Others are putting in tougher underwriting controls in place like aig twenty five additional details questions about client security measures and is reducing its limits on ransomware. Interestingly the peace interviewed sarah stevens the head of cyber for the international division at marsh which is the world's biggest insurance broker. Surprisingly she doesn't point to crypto as the culprit in this ransomware epidemic. But the change in the distribution of ransomware software itself quote as ransomware as a service really took off. We've seen the complexity the frequency and the severity of ransomware incidents skyrocket. This is a story. That's going to continue. But i hope this sort of voice that focuses on the actual mechanism of distribution of the software in question itself and on the financial incentives that surround. It are going to start taking more of the blame from the all too easy fall. Guy of crypto currency without. Let's shift gears. A little bit and our main discussion has a bit of a bitcoin and geopolitics theme. Before i get into it. I wanna give big ups to coin desks on about a cova and the blocks will allow for their translations without them. We wouldn't have these stories so quickly. And i wouldn't be able to do this podcast so soon. After news happens around the world so first. Let's go to russia. Alexei navalny is the main opposition leader in russia. He's currently imprisoned which i suppose is better than the dead that the state has indicated. They want him with numerous attempts on his life. He was poisoned last fall by chemical weapon than in may the anti corruption organization that he leads was labeled an extremist group by russian courts leading them to disband also in may a database of people who had signed up on a website to support of all these protests was stolen leading many of those people to be dachshund some to lose their jobs earlier today. Leonid volkov the head of navan. These volunteer network made video addressing supporters. He said that despite recent crackdowns they would be continuing their work but to do so they needed financial support and traditional institutions monitored by the state weren't going to cut it the answer you got it crypto quote if the authorities are pushing us out of fundraising via the banking system. We will be patiently teaching everyone to use crypto currencies and learn ourselves. There are some serious gems in this broadcast. He also said crypto. Currencies are real substitution. For money it's not a toy. Their advantages that they are not controlled by any central banks or governments. So it's hard or even impossible for the government's track them and here's an even better. One quote crypto is not illegal version of a bank transfer. It's a legal and safe replacement for cash. This is such a simple clear way to make the distinction and to fight back at the idea that crypto just for criminals the cash equivalents argument. Is i believe a fundamental argument for privacy in crypto currencies and privacy in the future of central bank digital currencies. Unfortunately i tend to think cash is in its swansong for exactly the reason that it can't be easily surveilled but that.

"Someone impersonating a spokesman for imprisoned russian opposition figure alexander navalny conducted zoom meetings with european parliament members. The sessions featured. What the guardian and nl times called a deepfake video call purporting to be volley associate leonid volkov which volkov himself said looked pretty convincing. Speculation about responsibility for the incident has focused on vo van and lexus. Two well-known russian prank callers pranksters and such nuisance. Humorous are known. The incident is of course troubling for coming at a time when navalny is imprisoned and on a life threatening hunger strike and it's worth noting that relatively senior political officials were taken in by the scam but to place it in perspective. This is more shock jock stuff than it is a spore of new and devilish lena. Various approach to disinformation technically. It's a cut above the kind of jerk who had called the live news coverage to holler bubba buoy during the slow motion. Chase of oj.

The lesson is that video that appears genuine alive call need not be and that some authentication beyond look and feel is necessary but we already knew that it's even become atropine gag insurance commercials where there's a guy video conferencing with his move colleague and so forth.

"Make sure you're subscribe wherever you're listening watching. Hope you're having a wonderful Sunday let's get informed. The, first thing we have to talk about today is trump's most recent endorsement. nor Bin Laden niece of nine eleven mastermind Osama bin. Laden has endorsed president trump for reelection saying her first ever interview with the new. York Post she thinks if Joe Biden is reelected, there will be another nine eleven type event citing nothing of value to back the statement. Miss Bin Laden says that she's always been quote unquote American by heart despite the fact that she lives in Switzerland. She's claims she's been a trump supporter since two thousand fifteen admires trump's resolve and says, western, civilization will fall apart if trump loses continuing quote. You, look at all the terrorist attacks that have happened in Europe. Over the past nineteen years they have completely shaken us to the core radical Islam has completely infiltrated our society and the US. It's very worrying that the left has aligned itself completely with the people who share that ideology and quote. This bonkers. The left in the United States has not align itself with people who support radical Islam. Apparently, missed bin Laden. Also says she is an avid consumer of conservative Fox News Host Tucker Carlson. Miss Bin Laden was right about something though she called the upcoming election, the most important inner generation. It is the most important because if we don't elect Joe Biden, we're going to continue destroying norms that are institutions rely on to function. We're going to continue to destroy the economy and continue to reverse climate change efforts in this country. At this point I'm curious. Are there any other horrible historical figures who have family members that want to come out and endorsed trump? Colleges across the nation are struggling with how to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. Many campuses are raging with outbreaks right now let's examine a few. Bloomberg says at Iowa State University in Ames the positivity rate during the first week of clauses which started August seventeenth was thirteen point six percent. And the second week, it shot to twenty eight point eight percent. This is on a campus of more than thirty one, thousand students. Then, the University of Alabama they have over twelve hundred positive cases on their thirty eight thousand, five, hundred student body campus the University of South, Carolina's positive test rate past twenty-seven percent. Many administrators and officials are blaming partying. Robert Jones Chancellor of the University of Illinois at urbana-champaign says quote. The irresponsible downright dangerous actions of a small number of our students have created the very real possibility of ending in-person semester end quote. So like Jones says, they may have to end all in person classes. Politico says, colleges have a few options here. If the numbers don't die down one forge ahead with in person instruction to send kids home with Zoom Syllabus and risk spreading the virus three shelter students in place noting particularly how damaging riding out of hand damn alone as a college student could be. President trump has, of course, demanded that colleges reopened because it makes them look good if there's a semblance of normalcy in the nation, which is also why he's been fighting so hard to get football seasons back but concerning the plans of universities, it's important to note how much more complicated this is made by the fact that each university has its own plan for what to do. There have been next to no governmental guidelines just to demand from trump to keep moving the director of the pandemic resorts and Response Initiative at Columbia University said quote. I don't think that there are two universities that have the same protocol. It's national chaos and quote this is all worsened by the fact that colleges are hotbeds for super spider events that is to say infected people shaw two parties. In fact, others in the Virus Moves Vialli outwards from their potentially having students sent home to their parents or grandparents who they can infect nasty scenario all around and none of the option schools have right now are particularly appealing. James Lawler, who's a global health expert at the University of Nebraska Medical Center saying quote. I think school transmission is going to be driving hot spots for the next couple of months and a lot of places. It's a catch, twenty, two and quote. About. Twenty percent of colleges are open exclusively or primarily in person while one third are strictly online. So that leaves the rest as a hybrid mixture of online and in person instruction I don't think there's an easy answer to this problem here. The easy answer would have been for us to have a two-month shutdown instead of a one month shutdown and reopened when we had twenty thousand new cases per day, the government has failed US especially at the highest levels. Let me know what you think colleges in university should do I'm on twitter and Instagram at rob four show. German chancellor. Angela. Merkel. Says Russia poisoned Russian opposition leader Alexia volley in a statement, the German government said that Soviet era nerve agent Nova Chalk had been used to poison him. Nevada only as a politician and corruption investigator and one of Vladimir Putin's harshest critics reportedly Nevada was drinking a cup of tea in an airport and then fell ill on a flight back to Russia from Siberia. On August twentieth he was then taken to a hospital in the Siberian city of Osc after an emergency landing. Two days later he was transferred to a hospital in Berlin Germany where doctor said he had been poisoned then last week a statement from Angela. Merkel showed that there was now quote unquote proof without doubt of a chemical nerve agent from the Nova Group. This Novacek, poison was used back in two thousand eighteen in England to poison former Russian spy Sergei scruple and his daughter Russia vehemently denied then and they're denying this latest poisoning. Germany demanded a response from Russia on Wednesday. The Kremlin said they weren't yet informed of Navan poisoning. The German government said that they would inform its partners in the European Union and NATO about the test results Navan is still in critical condition and the road to recovery may be long as doctors don't know how long has recovery will be from the severe poisoning currently, he's still in a medically induced coma president trump issued his first public comments Friday by saying quote. So I don't know exactly what happened I think that it is tragic. It is terrible. It should not happen. We have not had any proof yet, but we will take a look I would be very angry if that is the case and quote. Trump's comments come despite a German military live confirming the presence of a Novacek poisoning. Alexia Navales longtime ally and strategist. Leonid Volkov said in a tweet that featured a photo of Putin's name in a signature next to quote. To Poison Navan with Nova Chalk in two thousand, twenty would be exactly the same as leaving an autograph at a crime scene like this one and quote. The German government is now struggling with how to hit back at Vitamin Putin over this poisoning. Boats daring trump support parade on Lake Travis in Texas. On Saturday the Travis County Sheriff's Office tweeted out tesol responded to multiple calls involving boats in distress during the trump parade on lake travis several boats did sink Lake Travis is outside of Austin Texas and the Austin Travis County Ems said that they had not been involved in any of the incidents that took place on the lake. I'm glad that everyone seems to be okay after these incidents let's hope that this is a metaphor for the election. This year trump goes down and everyone is okay. Bloomberg is reporting that as many as one, hundred, thirty, two, million more people than previously projected could go hungry this year twenty, twenty s gain of new hungry people may be more than triple, any increase.

"This is the world where a co production of the BBC World Service PRI and w h here in Boston. The FBI does many things and one of them is to investigate war crimes. Not just here in the US. But around the globe, our partner program reveal from the center for investigative reporting has learned that the bureau has decided to dissolve that program. Aaron glance is a senior reporter who broke that story. He says the people working in the FBI's war crimes unit are doing important work there. The kind of FBI agents, you might see in movies people who tracked down Liberian warlords living in Philadelphia quiet life in their old age and put the cuffs on them. They're the type of FBI agents who tracked down the Americans who join ISIS and bring them to Justice or the agents who investigate American military contractors working overseas who massacre innocent civilians and put them in the dark. That is the unit of the FBI that we learned is being dismantled, right? In those cases, you cited like the Liberian warlord living in Philadelphia. Those are actual cases that they've cracked yet last year. One of these men Thomas were wage, you he was living a quiet life in Philadelphia. But back in Liberia where he was a warlord witnesses who testified at his trial in Philly said that his men heard civilians checkpoints decorated with severed heads and strings of human intestines. These are the kinds of people that can just live amongst us. If nobody is looking so the FBI's international human rights unit was created icy ten years ago during the Obama administration who was behind its creation, and how is its history connected to the war crimes of World War Two. There have been parts of the FBI that have been looking into war criminals living in the US and around the world ever since World War Two it began with the Nazi hunting. But in two thousand nine congress passed a law. Creating the special unit with the idea first of all that there should be people whose job it is always to look for a war criminals both here in the US and around the world where the US citizen is either the perpetrator or the victim. The other important thing about the special unit as it was created by congress was that there's kind of a command center for different parts of the federal government that all have a stake in bringing war criminals to Justice, the State Department the Justice department ice, but the FBI role is still really keyed because immigrant communities are not likely to go to ace and report someone I mean, these communities are afraid of the immigration police. And so having another part of the federal government that is not connected to ice that you can also go to to report a war criminal in your midst is really important. So who is behind the decision to shut down this FBI unit. And why what's the rationale, you know? It's not really. Clear I found about this from a source when I went to the FBI head office. They gave me a statement that basically said even though we're limiting this office. Technically war crimes prosecutions will go on like nothing ever happened. But then when I talked to sources, they say that they're very worried, and they're already seen indications that agents are going to be reassigned to other work. What is lost in the long term? When this program is shuttered. What we're going to see is that there is going to be no dedicated part of the federal government to bringing this whole suite of war, criminals to Justice think about the murder of the American journalist Marie Colvin who was killed in an airstrike in Syria in two thousand twelve the center for Justice and accountability. Which is a human rights nonprofit based in San Francisco went to federal court and last month, they want a three hundred million dollar judgment against the Syrian Republic for a targeted killing of an. An American journalist doing her job in a media center that is a war crime. That is exactly the kind of case that this FBI unit would try to bring as a criminal case against the Syrian officials who perpetrated the crime, and you might say, well, what's the point of that those Syrian officials are living in Syria. Anyway, it's really important that we have this long arm of Justice, these Syrian officials can't at some point come to the United States and give lectures, or maybe the government of Sierra could change at some point in. There might be an opportunity to bring these individuals to Justice the people in the US government who would be charged with bringing that case they wouldn't exist anymore Aaron glance with the scoop on the closing of the FBI's international human rights unit errands, a senior reporter for our partner program reveal from the center for investigative reporting. Aaron thank you very much. Thank you. In china? They've got the so-called great firewall. It's a combination of policy people and technologies that severely limit. What people in China can see or say on the internet now Russia appears to be moving in a similar direction to create what some people are calling an internet iron curtain reporter, Charles Maine's has been following this from Moscow. So we're hearing that rush plans to take some pretty drastic steps when it comes to the internet like cutting itself off from it entirely. Is that for real, what's what's happening? Well, first of all you have to keep in mind Marco that in recent years, really since twenty eleven brushes past a slew of internet laws, which critics say a repressive nature. And now we have this new law. This is introduced into the Russian parliament known as the Duma this week, and it's passed if are just one of three readings, but it's designed to defend Russia's internet sovereignty and essentially the law calls for kill switch to the internet. Something youth. Authorities have been discussing for some time here behind the scenes, but essentially the big test is scheduled for sometime before April first the idea is to cut Russia's internet completely often the external World Wide Web and Seattle goats. And so what's the rationale behind this law behind the whole move? Lawmakers will say this is reaction to the United States primarily this is about the NSA and their doctrine on offensive cyber warfare. And they say that Russia needs to protect itself in the US allowing users to continue using an internal Russian internet, but safe from these attacks by the NSA now surprised critics of this Bill aren't convinced a case in point. I wanna introduce you to leave. Volkhov? He's the founder of the internet protection society in Russia and get your beat gun ready. Okay. The the first version of the story that like NFC would got us over the internet was supposed to simply I should probably mention that Volkov is also member of the opposition. So criticizing the authorities. If something comes quite naturally to him. I mean, the NSA said in a report along with the FBI and CIA that Russia tried to interfere with US elections is this some kind of retaliation. Well, that's part of the context of this. Keep in mind that Russia has always denied interfering in these cyber intrusions in the US elections, for example, but they are certainly aware of what they see as anti Russian hysteria coming out of Washington coming out of the US in the form of sanctions, and they are concerned about any kind of offensive attack against Russia's in critical infrastructure online by the NSA at this point. So earlier I frame this is kind of Russia's version of China's so-called great firewall. I is that the case, and how feasible would that even be to kind of duplicate what China's done will if it works. Yes. The question is will it work efforts to control the internet and countries like China, they benefit from a limited number of internet. Chokepoints the fewer essentially incoming cables there are the easier. The web is to control but Russia you they've had a thriving internet industry for years now. And so they have over nine hundred chokepoints how effectively is the question can a thirties put blockers in place. On the track record of outmanoeuvring. The tech industry isn't great either consider efforts to block the telegram messaging app. This happened last year. I remember we talked about this, and it just failed completely telegram still works today. I have it on my phone. It sounds like if the test goes through, and this becomes kind of a standard thing in Russia could be potentially disruptive for many Russians. How are they reacting was unsurprising it's pretty mixed. Certainly there are those who buy the argument that Russia should protect itself, but on social media most attitudes are negative towards this law. Take Anton Newton he's a columnist for the Petersberg Dila. Void daily. It's an online newspaper out of Saint Petersburg. He at the. Eamon? Westbound sound bites. So he says the cutting off Russia's internet from the rest of the world would be catastrophic. I mean, they risk losing out in falling behind in history. And he says that this law that claims to want to protect Russia's digital sovereignty. Actually, just weakens it in that way. Have you heard any concern that this law is really about control over what people see no, absolutely? The opposition figures will say this is about monitoring them and controlling their access to their supporters to take for example. Alexei navalny that this is the opposition leader here in Russia. His whole campaign his outreach to supporters is fueled by the internet. He's he's completely banned from television, this guy Leonid Volkov that we heard from earlier, you know, he did point out. However that these laws which they are fundamentally against in a way, they're so ham-fisted that they make the job of the opposition easier because in trying to control the internet, the Kremlin, essentially alienates younger Russians, it drives them away and to the opposition given what we know about Russia and Putin should any of this surprises. Well, I think there's a moment. Essentially when you look back to the twenty eleven protest movement here in Moscow and across Russia, but primarily here in Moscow. The internet was the organizing platform for everything. And that was the moment that Russia really the Russian authorities. Really woke up to the idea of the internet is as being something dangerous to the authorities, and they became very interested in social media in Facebook and other platforms as a way to organize and it's from there that we see these crackdown with new laws introduced to control the internet. And it's also where we see the birth of real online trolling the world's Charles Maine's and Moscow people in France or learning about online trolling the hard way a scandal is playing out there. And some of the culprits involved are not whom you might expect the world's Lucy. Montereau CNN has that story. There are rumors and Paris about this for years. This mysterious group that harass people online. The league. I didn't know this this name until this weekend Kansas sedan, allowing is a well known French fashion blogger she didn't know she was a target of legal until now that's LL in English. You laugh out loud. It was a private Facebook group made up of French journalists mostly they were behind the wave of online insults and harassment aimed at winning and anyone else not light or straight. They weren't journalist. And I was just a blogger. And they're like, okay. So she the blogger, and she she talks about fashion, Judy. So she has she has nothing. She's nuts intelligensia. So should be. I feel like this. Sedans been online since two thousand eight she's all over social media with tens of thousands.
