The Case Of The Murdered Jewess

"We now lay before the reader. A full account of a shocking murder that of miss sarah alexander the beautiful polish jewess. Who was foully murdered in an east new york cornfield. The crime was one of the most shocking that has ever occurred in the metropolis or its vicinity. Cousin of the dead girl to whom she was very much attached was arrested and the discovered fact of her near maternity coupled with the expected arrival of the prisoner's wife from germany furnished. The only clue there was to the horrible deed. Eddie thank you so much for joining me today. Thanks for having their happy to be here. So we're talking about some murder. Pamphlets there were four that were published about the case of pesach. Rubinstein were featuring two of them. These pamphlets were type of pulp literature. They've been around for a long time and were especially popular in the nineteenth century. Tell us more about them. These were mostly eight to sixteen page pamphlets that were often illustrated and described typically in lurid detail well-known murders that took place in the united states. Obviously the time. There's no radio. Tv internet print media is the only thing available and some of them are. I guess you could say enhanced. Sometimes the writers make things up both were pale with lips compressed and is haggard and as they halted and looked at each other their hearts appeared to be like open books every feeling every emotion could be read. She had a knife with which her own life blood was to be. Shed thrust into her bosom and drawing it fourth. She held it toward her companion. He trembled violently. His knees smote together and he was altogether like a man intoxicated. It's obvious these pamphlets were not written by people who knew about jewish beliefs and practices. They contain some false information. They show a lack of knowledge of how jews live and worship. What's an example of this. One of them shows him preying on his hands and knees with his hands clasped before him. So this is obviously how a christian praise and not at all. How a jew praise our artist has graphically sketched him while at prayer and from the illustration a better idea can be gained than any description can give. Now that we've heard about the pamphlets can you give us a detailed overview of the story contained within the particular ones were exploring in eighteen. Seventy five a body was found in a field in east new york. East new yorkers in brooklyn and at the time and eighteen seventy five. It was a far. Now it's not on december fourteen. He found the body of a woman in a cornfield on the ground behind a stack of corn. These stacks were at the lower end of the field near the fence. The farthest off from the plank road. There was a shawl lying by the side of the body. The corpse was about two feet from the base of the corn stack. The body lay on the back and was all cut about the neck win. This went and informed. Mr wessel who in company two other men went and viewed it farmhand had her and he went to the police and told them they came investigated. Took the body away to the morgue. They know who was there had been no reports of anyone missing in brooklyn and so they chose to do so. This person must from manhattan. The police were puzzled. No report had been received of any late disappearance from the neighborhood. Nevertheless the region was scoured. All during tuesday afternoon and evening. The police station was thronged and officers. Say that not less than two thousand persons saw the body no one could identify it and the conclusion was arrived at that. She was a stranger in the village. So what they did was. They put an advertisement in a newspaper which was actually very common at the time claiming that a body had been found and they wrote a description of it now at the same time a woman who worked for a particular family on the lower side had gone missing. Her name was. Sarah alexander at her brother went to the rubinstein family where she worked and he said you know. Have you seen sarah. She didn't come home from work yesterday and they said no she was here until such a time and then she left. We haven't seen her since so her brother. Put an ad in the newspaper looking for missing person and describing her the new york sun december fourteenth eighteen. Seventy five a girl missing since the afternoon of the twelfth age. Seventeen years stout middle height face dark dressed in a light colored dress with the black over skirt striped shawl small gold earrings with red stones. Any information will be received by. J p alexander number thirty essex street coincidentally. The two advertisements appeared on the same page in the same paper and they describe the same person. The father of the rubinstein family happened to get that paper. He saw the advertisements and he went to the police station. Ad said that girl is sarah alexander of number thirty essex street. She was a good religious girl. She did not stay away from home and if she was murdered away out there. Some ruffians must have dragged her away so the police came to the home and began to interview everyone to find out where she had last been seen and while they were entering everyone. One of the sons came in. His name was pace off rubinstein on monday. The sun with great perturbation of manner told them that he had had a dream the previous night. He dreamed that. Sarah alexander was lying murdered alongside of corn stalks ten miles outside of the city. She was murdered by an italian and the knife was close beside her. She wants me to bury her. He said

The Yearning for the Unexplained

"Colin dickey joins us now from Brooklyn his new book is called the unidentified mythical monsters, alien encounters, and our obsession with the unexplained Collin. Thanks for being here. Thanks so much for having me on I want to start by talking about another book when it came out pretty much a hundred years ago with a fairly lurid title. What was the book of the damned? Oh the book of the damned, so Charles Fort's as the author of the book damned, and he was a, he was a writer who I think he was. He was on a path to be a kind of I. Guess what you would call a crank writer somebody who had the sort of wild elaborate theory about how human civilization was controlled by radio, being sent from Venus or something like that he unsurprisingly didn't get very far with that particular book and it's it's. It's been lost. It was never published a it got rejected and immediate he he would spend his days down at the new. York Public Library he lived in Manhattan, he would walk. The New York Public Library, and he would just spend his morning reading various newspaper, and scientific, Journal articles about various strange planed things that that he came across everything from ball, lightning, two frogs and fish, falling from the sky, blood rains, just various bizarre things that nobody really could understand. Understand, or how good kind of idea what what was going on here? And he just started collecting those, and what came the book of the damned was this oddball collection of these unexplained phenomenon, and rather than advocates, some kind of theory, what makes the book of the damned so great and strangest? He just kind of puts it all out there and says we don't really have explanations for a lot of these things you know, hence the idea of you know the. The the book of the Damn these for fourth. These are damned facts. These are damned stories because they're. They're excluded from from science and religion was like the early x-files. Yeah, exactly, it's except without going so far as to even say that you know. Aliens are behind it. It's sort of I mean in his later books for it would kind of try in kind of offer a thesis, but those are usually kind of its weakest moments when he's at his best. When. He sort of just kind of throwing out these ideas without necessarily. Of having to answer them, just kind of putting them out there on the table for the rest of us to kind of marvel at our physical copies of this book still around Oh Yeah Oh. Yeah, it's still in print. That's actually in public domain, so they're they're you know you can get lots of different editions of it? I got this this Great Hopi Dover Thrift edition of all four of his books, which is like twelve hundred pages in total and the massive unwieldy thing that kind of falls me from apartment to apartment. All right well, we'll talk about your book now. which will explain why a? Book of the damned might figure into things. Let's start with your subtitle mythical monsters, alien encounters and our obsession with the unexplained. Give us a sense of what territory your book covers. You know enlarge party grew out of the two thousand sixteen election grew out of a lot of the sense of misinformation conspiracy theories, and all these things that were were floating around, and a lot of which was being attributed to social media which I. Think is fair and accurate, but I also. Wanted to dig a little deeper into the genealogy of where some of these beliefs come from and. What I found again and again is you know? Just simply telling somebody, the factual truth about an a given incident or conspiracy theories is usually rarely enough because these beliefs are operating somewhere on a kind of more primal level. I really wanted to understand how we became a culture. That is kind of yearning for the unbelievable. That is yearning for something that is beyond the reach of science and religion, and so ended up going back to crypt the bigfoot lock ness monster chew copper things like that as well as the lost continent of Atlantis, and Maria and an aliens in and UFO's sort of these these three threads that really define the modern particularly in America kind of the twentieth century America's attempt to find something, magical and mysterious. Scientific Rationale Yeah I was GONNA. Ask about who the we is. I'm curious are Americans. Especially Gullible do we have a particular history with conspiracy theory and this mass, hysteria or mythology I'm not sure it's goal ability, and first of all I mean I think that in some sense, there is an almost conscious decision to believe the unbelievable that that runs through a lot of this. It's not entirely exclusive to Americans. I mean certainly loch ness monster is a you know a denizen of of Scott, London, and the UK certainly loves Nessie, but I do think it is a by-in-large, a function of a kind of modern industrial age culture that has kind of tap out the world prior to. I Dunno, the you know seventeenth eighteenth century there were still literal monsters. There were still things that were unexplained. There were still hearts of the globe that that Western nations hadn't experienced a reached or whatever, and so you could still believe that there were strange things out there.

Venezuela's Ongoing Political Saga

"Venezuela is in the news again. There's a failed raid. Actually two of the advisors of one guy lull have resigned. They resigned Monday so I wanted to talk about Venezuela a little bit third rail topic of Latin America so over the weekend. I had the opportunity to connect with Gabriel Hetland Assistant Professor of Latin American Caribbean and US. Latino studies at the University of Albany and here is the conversation. Hey Gabriel thank you so much for being on Latino rebels radio great to be here. Venezuela seems to be doesn't seem to go away before we get into the deeper issues regarding Venezuela. I would love to get your reaction about what has happened over the last Last week in continuing this whole notion of this ex green beret with a raid. That was going to go after. Nicholas model can you begin to breakdown your reaction or or give your take on all this. I'll do my best. I'm shaking my head as you say. This almost makes me chuckle. And I've heard so many accurate ways to describe it tragedy meets farce handler with Alaska historian at nyu said someone else. From the Obama X. Obama said described it as keystone cops meets failed Bay of Pigs invasion someone else a bad rambo movie. I mean it's almost absurd if it weren't tragic at the same time so you know the sort of short story is that there's a a ex green beret Jordan gaudreau based in Florida. He's apparently guarded trump at a rally at some point in the last couple of years He seems to be described as totally out of touch with reality by everyone. Who's met him over the last several years he got involved into that. Anna's Waylon really randomly was last February at this concert. That March I guess when Richard Branson people was having a concert in Kuku Columbia on the border blah to raise for humanitarian aid and basically for an armed invasion of Venezuela by the opposition at failed utterly but from that point on Goo throw with his Sort OF SECURITY OPS Company in Florida Silver Corp got interested in Venezuela and the money that might be involved with toppling meadow and it as more and more of the details. Come out it's truly scandalous and Lurid and it's GonNa Impact Venezuela for a long time to come but There was a armed invasion. Which happened just over week ago on Sunday. and You know about little less than two dozen Folks got got off a boat An eight of them were killed and another fifteen or so were captured by the Venezuelan army. Apparently fisherman actually are the ones who initially captured them and their plan was to sort of invade Venezuela's through the ocean. You Know Landa boat make their way to cut off us. Topple them Dodo administration free Venezuela goto warehouses filled with cash. Us dollars take the cash leave and be treated as heroes Total absurd but what really makes it know scandalous as the main opposition leader. One Guy Dough is involved in this And there's more and more evidence coming out that he knew something about what was going to happen. It's not entirely clear how much he now and how much he knew and it appears that he didn't know a whole lot but in over last year he had a series of meetings. I think by phone basically with Guerrero and there's recordings with his voice and he's been invited to save. These are not true and he hasn't done so to my knowledge so far where he you know says it will support the agreement and one of his deputies apparently gave fifty thousand dollars as an initial payment which was supposed to go up to two hundred some million dollars And other Guido officials apparently had some level of knowledge the trump administration has denied it but in very interesting terms where Secretary Pompeo has said the US was not directly involved and so his use of the word directly suggests that they were somehow involved. That's what I mean exactly. And here's the thing that I would say about all this. Given how third rail of an issue Venezuela is there because it's so damn partisan this topic you could literally make a case that each party involved could have been involved. You know what I'm saying. I'm not trying to be like that's how messed up. Venezuela's right now in terms of the understanding because I'm sure that there are people who are saying well. This is his mother will conspiracy. You know he just created all this because you know the opposition and goes like I don't know anything about it the US. I feel like it was being taken from like amateur hour so it Kinda to me speaks to how Venezuela is often misunderstood misrepresented because it is being seen through a very hyper partisan lens that is so complex that I don't think it's reality right now in this is sort of an example of this absurd story that this sort of like bad.

"Today is Wednesday April Fifteenth Twenty Twenty. And this is your host even Avella joining me this week. Or Bob Develop. Everybody Cares Santamaria. Howdy Jay. Novella Guys Evan Bernstein. Well good evening. Everyone not tax day. Every that's not tax day. It goes to tax day. Okay so this has never happened before in the history of our country tax day for as long I think since nineteen well since they adopted April fifteenth as the Tax Day. There's never it's never been postponed until this year. Yeah it's never been moved. It's always been April fifteenth. And we're talking wars. You know we're talking anything everything you can think of. The last seventy years that is that has happened but this virus did it well. I know it's amazing is necessary. Is that definitely definitely necessarily people. Need all the help they can get right now. Financially and otherwise. Yeah that's true because it's not just about filing paperwork on tax day it's about paying what you owe right. I think I probably. Oh quite a bit. But if you're getting a refund you could file whenever you want absolutely yeah. And we've encouraged our clients. They're expecting refunds. Don't wait do not wait. No no point in waiting so those are the ones I've heard from and the people who oh I have not heard from January right. Guess you guys. I got the funniest well. I shouldn't say funny cause was actually very depressing. Email today from a local massage studio here in L. A. Says Cove in nineteen update. Now is the time. We're getting so many. E mails and some of them. Amazing some of the super arbitrary from companies being like in these times of crisis. We're here to tell you that we exist and you're like what I don't need this update but this one is so strange. It says to our massage clients effective today all massage treatments will be cancelled through April fifth. This comes in recommendation from the city. The state and the California massage therapy council safety in wellness of our clientele staff and massage therapist. Our number one priority will be here when this passes in the meantime please be gentle with yourself and practice self care at home. Oh I love that and then immediately after it says. We are still treating chiropractic acupuncture patients. Oh good as your right. Oh and then you have symptoms of Blah Blah Blah. What the heck that makes no sense. Okay Oh it makes zero zero. We'll just keep this in mind. Guys there are people out there who are one hundred percent assured believing that this stuff is totally legitimate. Just like we think like going going physical. You know it's like it's part of their mill you that's it they believe it. Yeah but they're totally exploiting this platelet to promote themselves chiropractors. Some chiropractors are explicitly promoting themselves as a way of boosting your immune system or whatever to treat or prevent covert one thousand nine hundred. Yeah that's pathetic. That's horrible. Yeah not that any of us are surprised me. We've come to learn at. This is what they do. Well it's also just taking advantage of fear and uncertainty. That's out there. You know is basically snake oil salesmen. Do Right. Oh Yeah I'm actually seeing you know. We talked about this. Sometimes that in order to prep for new or in order for me to share kind of like I try to curate different news stories on my twitter feed. I'll go through feed reader every week and it's just been all cova one thousand nine. That's like you know it's hard to find a story. That's not covert related. So I get really excited when I see them but the cool thing is. I'm starting more and more to see at some of the outlets that I really like. People writing about the history of snake oils the history of harmful practices during times of fear and pandemics. And it's really cool that a lot of scientists story ends or digging up some of the things they saw during the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic or when Ebola. I came on the scene and how people were responding to them and writing about that so that we can learn from them. There's some really cool news articles out there. Yeah I mean. Obviously we're using the opportunity to get our message out as well but our messages. Listen to the experts. Yes it's early days. Still you can say novel Corona Virus But even pouching she and others are saying yeah. We're we're two weeks behind reality by the time we sort of get a handle on. What's happening that information's two-weeks-old so we're always playing catch up in a fast moving pandemic and people have gone back and said look there. Statements are changing. Of course they're changing very dynamic lurid situation. They're they're giving show your best information. They can at the time with caveats with the unknowns. You know it's as if it is if like in the middle of my dissertation. My My dissertation chair expected me to stop in the middle of Data Collection. And Give a press conference about all of my find. It like that's happening right now. We only just now collecting the data. We have not had time to analyze it. We're not at the end of the thing yet to be able to say with any certainty that this is how things are over such an impatient society up very much so the thing that drives me insane. Are The people who are critical on? I don't WanNa say guestimations but you know they're critical on projections. As an example. We take the best information we have. We use the the best methodology that we have to try and figure out what the future holds for things that are inherently very chaotic and they turned those types of predictions into they got it wrong and got well. Well we're trying to do. We're trying to make the best damn guesses and projections that we can. That's all that we have other thing is i. I hate it when you make a probabilistic statement you could say like it's ninety percent likely a is going to happen right and ten percent that not a will happen right and then he doesn't tap into you were wrong no are you said it was. It was one hundred percent ninety percent which means ten percent of the time. It's not going to be a right you have to look at the actual statistics say if those how accurate those and be where people who speak in absolutes anyways that's red flag thank you. Yeah that they're trying to sell you something. I think the part. That's so frustrating for me sort of to what you were speaking about. Jay is where individuals and you see this all the time where individuals will say okay. The warnings are out there. We have to social distance physical distance. Sorry we have to do X Y and Z. We have to get out in front of this thing and if we do that we'll be able to reduce the number of deaths because you know the the probabilistic statement is that will lose between X. People and ex people and then we do that. It starts working and they go see. It wasn't that bad every making so and you're watching that properly to to measures that were put in place recommend or the guidelines and recommendations by who the experts. It's amazing. I mean it's just incredible like you cannot get through to some people know. Look at its core. We as critical thinkers have established a trust in science We have a relationship with the methodology behind science and the people who practice that. And that's that is my baseline. That's my core. But the thing that just you know it's such a this is such a basic skeptical tenant that I don't care what the truth is. I just want to know what the truth is. My mood. I believe can change quickly with the right amount of information and proof right. That's that's the part. That's immutable here right. You're invested not invested in the end result. You're invested in the process and you're not sitting here trying to negotiate with truth to get a better outcome or one. That feels more when that feels like more politically salient. And that's a really difficult time. Right now is that there are world leaders there many world leaders and many governments or I should say governors and mayors here in the US who are looking at this thing an evidence based way and that's incredible to see in a time of crisis. They're saying I want to understand what the experts have to say. I want to talk to the garage. Epidemiologists I wanna see what these projections are and I want to do. What's right by the people? The problem is there are a handful of other world leaders. I don't think I have to be explicit. Who are just not interested in evidence and they wanna make decisions based on whether it either be their feelings whether it be what they wish. Were true what what would be more convenient to be true. None of us wish it were like this out there but we know the only road to getting past. This is to look at the

Is Trump abusing his power over the judiciary?

"This is news in focus where we offer our insights into the stories that matter before we go any further. I want to address today. Sentencing of a man Roger Stone Roger Stone. He's become the sentencing of Roger Stone. A LONGTIME CONFIDANTE DONALD TRUMP for lying to Congress obstruction and witness tampering was mired in controversy. Over how the. Us Justice Department handled the case under public pressure from the president. Mr Stone received a forty month sentence whereas prosecutors had recommended that he serve up to nine years. This followed seven cases of presidential clemency for White Collar criminals whose convictions included extortion fraud and lying to White House officials. Yes we have commuted. The sentence of Rod Blagojevich. He served eight years in jail We have Birdie character we have Mike Milkin. Who's gone around and done an incredible job? Offer is the independence of America's judiciary under threat. Or as Mr Trump simply using the powers a lot to him on the line with me to discuss this is ed loose. Us National Editor and columnist and Cottam Schober US legal and enforcement correspondent. I let's hear a clip from president trump taken. Just a couple of days before stone sentencing. Just so you understand. I chose not to be involved. I'm allowed to be totally involved. I'm actually I guess the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the country but I've chosen not to be involved but he is a man of great integrity. But I would be. I could be involved if I wanted to be man of integrity he is referring to is the US Attorney General William Bar but is this credible given the tweets he published before the sentencing of Roger. Stone got tell us first about the case of Roger Stone which you've covered for the F. T. Who was he exactly? What was his crime? And was the sentence particularly lenient for this kind of case. Roger Stone is a flamboyant veteran political operative in the US. His career goes all the way back to working on Richard Nixon's election campaign and he has basically been the person you call as a Republican presidential candidate. When you want to get your hands dirty. He called himself a dirty trickster and he is an expert in this sort of Makir side politics in the two thousand sixteen election. He was a sort of informal adviser to Donald Trump. And one of the things he was trying to do was make contact with wikileaks. When it became known that wikileaks had a trove of hacked emails from the Democrats to use it for political gain. The thing that he was convicted of is in two thousand seventeen when Congress began investigating. What exactly went on to twenty sixteen election? The House Intelligence Committee called on Mr Stone and asked him about some of the comments he had made during the campaign and Mr Stone lied to. Congress about who is intermediary was or who he was referring to when he was talking about having an intermediary allied when. He said that he didn't have any documents or any written materials or any taxed of his conversations with that intermediary. The sentence he eventually received was actually probably pretty in line with what other sort of white collar criminals convicted of lying to. Congress or the government have received the key issue in his case was he had threatened a longtime friend of his who was also another witness. Basically saying don't contradict my story and those thrashed included threatening his dog for example the key issue at stake was whether he was serious about that and whether therefore has sent should be jacked up significantly because he had made violent threats and eventually the judge took the view that although it was serious that he'd made violent threats. The person that he had threatened didn't actually feel like they were going to experience violence. Ed Tell us a bit more about Mr Stone. And the history of his friendship with the President and whether you think Mr Trump's tweets constituted interference in the judicial process. Yeah as I said. He's a flamboyant dirty tricks. Who GOES WAY BACK TO LATE? Six hundred seventy trump maximum in the late seventies. He was introduced to try but he quickly hit it off. They shed philosophy of you know playing to win that no method is invalid. Never apologize never explain. Stone set up with couple of other people are very well known lobby group in Washington. One of his clients was trump who was seeking tax breaks a casino. He was setting up in Atlantic City. And really they've been great friends since then so the ties between trump and stone go along way that very deep and they're often allegedly nefarious in terms of the League outlook from this. I have no doubt that trump will seek to podcastone fast opportunity. Trump's on the Guy Senate acquittal spring cleaning of his administration ruthlessly seeking out anybody who isn't very very loyal so to get rid of weather that Meghan appointees the civil savage. Anybody perceive does slightly disloyal. Not Enough is being pledged. Loyalty is a hugely important hugely. Important thing to trump and stern has shown loyalty he has not. He is not divulged things that have damaged the president. He's showing toughness. He's been very Trumpian in how he's dealt with. Franchi's accused the judge me by of being a biased judge which she's rejected this very trumpian and I have no doubt that it will culminate in at some point. President trump pardoning Roger Stern question about what trump actually did part of the reason. Roger Stone was so controversial. Was that line prosecutors involved in this case we're uncomfortable with what Mr Trump and the justice department we're doing. Can you explain that to viewers and why it was such a problem so there are four prosecutors who secured Mrs Jones conviction trial so the trial team? They filed their sentencing recommendation which was seven to nine years which there's no bones about it. That's a serious sentence for anybody to serve and then that evening all of a sudden early hours of the morning so after midnight trump tweets calling it a miscarriage of justice. He says this is unacceptable and Lo and behold the very next day the DOJ which is the US Department of Justice DOJ officials. Start saying that they agree that the sense would be unwarranted and adair kind of reverse it. The following day afternoon we see all four the prosecutors quit the case including one of them actually quits his job at the DOJ entirely and subsequently a new sentencing recommendation is put forward. Which says we'RE NOT GONNA ask for a particular sentence but it ought to be far less than seven to nine years. The idea that four prosecutors would quit a case. All at once is astonishing and it was a very serious and important moment and DOJ his trip shook the DOJ. It was a very dramatic moment in Washington and the question then was was doj senior leadership. William bar the. Us Attorney General. Was He reacting to an order from trump or was something else going on now the lion that DOJ has stuck to is that there was a miscommunication between the US Attorney's office in Washington DC and between main justice headquarters also in DC? But they're separate offices. Basically Mr. Barr says he was not expecting to see a seventy nine year recommendation. The new prosecutor brought on sat at the sentencing that the prosecutors who filed a recommendation that you good faith and thought that they had been given approval to do so and so Mr Bar said listen. This is not about trump. This is about. I think that that sentence was appropriate and I was not told about what was going on. The important thing here is whether or not Mr trump explicitly ordered the attorney general chains recommendation. It's still gets to this question about how our friends of the president being treated in their cases now it's pretty common across the US for federal prosecutors to request tough even harsh sentences. That's not unknown. You don't often see the attorney general weighing in to ask for lighter sentences and certainly DOJ policy at the moment is to prosecute people to the fullest extent of the law to secure the longer sentences possible so whether or not Mr Trump's tweets were an express order to Mr Bar that he followed a whether he was acting independently. It still gets to this question about if your friend of the president. How are you going to be treated by this? Doj while we're on the subject of Friends of the president. The other thing that happened last week was a series of presidential pardons for White Collar criminals specifically several that have connections to Mr Trump. I talk about Michael Milkin. What did he do and why does it matter that he was pardoned? Michael Milkin is to people on Wall Street a hero. He effectively invented the junk bond or high yield bond market in the eighties and then he was brought low by prosecutors and the SEC and eventually guilty to securities fraud and nine hundred ninety. He served about twenty two months in prison after being initially sentenced to ten years. Ever since then he's been rebuilding his reputation. He's a philanthropist. Now has the Milken Institute and for a long time people on Wall Street rich and powerful people have felt that he was prosecuted unjustly and deserved a pardon. The other person. Mr Trump pardon rod blagojevich is perhaps less of a popular figure in any area. He was the former Democratic governor of Illinois and was prosecuted for trying to extort a children's Hospital for campaign contributions and also trying to sell the vacated Senate seat of Barack Obama when he became president his case involves some quite lurid wiretap quotes. Where he talked about Mr Obama's Tennessee. Being a very valuable thing with various explosives and that he wasn't going to give it away for nothing. The fact that these pardons came just a day or two before Roger. Stone's sentencing is pretty mistake -able signal of Mr Trump's power to grant clemency. Whatever case that he wants so prosecutors can go after his fans and associates. Jerry can commit crimes. Judge can sentence them to however long they want ultimately. Mr Trump has under the constitution the pardon power and that was a pretty stark exercise of that pardon power on the eve of a close friend of his being sentenced. Ed Do you think we're gonNA see more interventions this spy trump perhaps related to the Mueller probe into Russian interference in the election. People like Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen. Who Manafort I think would definitely be a case for another pop and I would be very surprised if Michael Cohen Without Him. Because Michael Cohen Tablet Trump describes a rat in that inimitable. Kind of multi language that the president sometimes uses Michael. Cohen testified to Congress very damagingly against president. Trump's he's considered to be a tax cut. The thing that links you know all these Haden's whether it's Michael Milkin Rod Blagojevich Obama Carrick. Us police commissioner who was the security guard incidentally for Rudy Giuliani. The thing that links all of them is that they're pretty well connected people who've committed white-collar crimes and who have upbeat through Fox News. In some cases that Bregovic wife spoke on Fox News. He carrots by on Fox News to capture the president's attention and I think the pattern is again very trumpian thing. It's it's about. People who trump identifies with he feels as acute. Did he feels. He's fatty toxic at he. Identifies WITH OTHERS. Who fit that description again though. The role of connections and of mutual friends and a Fox as dishing platform for pardon. These are very common. There's a pattern here. How big a cause of concern is all this. I mean it's trump's use of the pardon power markedly different from other presidents will Clinton famously on his last day in office Rich Hedge Fund billionaire and friend of the Clintons Madonna to the Clintons and that caused a lot of bad blood. Clinton was heavily criticised for intervening on behalf of a friend and it stood out and I guess the reason I mentioned that is it. Was Fatty unusual. It's now completely normal. Trump has happened many many people who under the inventions of us? Pardon history wouldn't ready quantify so I think he has changed quite dramatically and just to add on. There's an interesting historical link year. Another controversial use of the pardon power in the past was George H W Bush who infamously pardoned a whole swath of former officials who are indicted in connection to the Iran Contra Scandal and bill bar the current. Us Attorney General was back then also attorney general and so Mr Bar He had pushed not just for one. Pardon of Caspar Weinberger. Who was the former Secretary of defense? He said listen. If you're gonNA pardon any of these people you have to pardon all of them. I think his quote was in for a penny in for a pound and so you may have the curious historical echo if MR trump loses later this year of his attorney general at the end of his time in office being the same attorney general at the end of George W Bush's time in office advising him on. You know who to pardon before he leaves Hamas all this been received in Washington and then around the US do people care. It's been received as many other actions by president trump being received with a high temperature reaction inside the Washington. Beltway and shrug outside the GNOMES that being trashed here in a row very significant look at the powers of the presidency. The procedures the the president uses before he acts and the conventions so that being shredded caused great angst in Washington. Dc across the political divide and almost badly registered a ripple outside of Washington. The same of course applies to impeachment. It really didn't resonate much isn't resonating match in the Democratic primaries. In places like Iowa New Hampshire and so I think this is far far lower. It may be it should be different than ideal while but it registered FAFA LOA on the vote says right of than than even impeachment.

Myth Busted: Turns Out Bankruptcy Can Wipe Out Student Loan Debt After All

"Many Americans who get overwhelmed by student loan debt are told. Bankruptcy is not an option for them because you can't get student debt reduced or wiped out through bankruptcy Z.. Will now more judges and legal scholars are saying. That's a myth and bankruptcy can be a way to help advocates want Congress to act to change the laws so student debt is treated the same as any other kind of debt. Here's more from. NPR's Chris Arnold a few years ago. Lauren who lives in Queens New York at a big problem. She graduated college with an art degree just as the great recession head and she had private student loans with very high interest rates for work all she could find. Were retail jobs and and by twenty sixteen her loans it ballooned to about two hundred thousand dollars. Should remember thinking. I can't afford to actually pay my bills and and eat and pay my rent. Basically I was financially handicapped. I mean my student loan payments were higher than my rent was so lurid started order to look into bankruptcy. She doesn't use her last name because she thinks all this might hurt her job. Prospects now bankruptcy is not fun your credit gets destroyed for years and you have to be. I'm pretty dire financial straits where to even make sense. But you can get your debts reduced erased so that you can survive and get back on your feet but the lawyers that Lauren because look basically with student loans. It's different. They had told me things like you have to have a disability. Where you're not able to even work and I was like well but that doesn't make any sense? Many bankruptcy judges and legal scholars agree. Jason Yuliana is a law professor at Villanova University. He says over the past thirty years. Congress has made hit harder to discharge student debt. You need to meet what's called an undue hardship standard. That also means more work for your lawyer but he says that's created this misperception that it's nearly impossible to get help for student. Loan debt through bankruptcy. Yuliana did some research and struck me as really surprising statistic when I when I first uncovered it. There's a quarter of a million student loan. Debtors who filed bankruptcy each year. They do that because they have credit card debt or other debts and they could get those reduced or raised by trying to get their student debt. Forgiven more than ninety nine percent of the student loan debtors in bankruptcy. Just give up without even trying. But he's also found that when people do try and they pay their lawyer to jump through the extra hoops about half the time. The person gets some or all of their student. Loan debt erased. So I think that's it's really important for bankruptcy attorneys to see that there are judges out there who are willing to grant undue hardship discharges and that people are much more likely to obtain relief in bankruptcy Nkosi for the student loan debt just this month. The judge in New York discharge two hundred and twenty thousand dollars in student loan debt for a borrower and in her ruling. She criticized the fact that even in many lawyers quote believe it. Impossible the discharge student loans. She added quote. This court will not participate and perpetuating these myths. Well I think I think we're reaching a tipping point with what the bankruptcy courts are doing. That's Robert Lawless law professor at the University of Illinois. He hopes that more people are able to get help through bankruptcy quasi but he says the rules are still too restrictive. He took part in research on the issue for the professional organization. The American Bankruptcy Institute which recommends the Congress rewrite the rules on student loans in bankruptcy and make it so after seven years from the lawns became do there would be treated pretty much like any other debt and the bankruptcy case. There's at least some support for that in Congress Harrison Wadsworth as a consultant for the consumer. Banker's says he ation he says most student loans are issued by the government these days but for loans from private lenders loosening the rules could push up interest rates winters more careful about making loans and probably have to charge more for them in Lawrence case she eventually found a lawyer and going through bankruptcy. She got her debt reduced from around two hundred thousand dollars down to around one hundred thousand and the bulk of that at a one percent interest rate. It's still a lot of money. Yeah so for me like I was extremely relieved. It is significantly less and I'm actually able to like make the payment and because they lowered the interest I'm actually paying Hong off the loan so Lawrence says she can recover financially. which lawless says is what? Bankruptcy is therefore Chris Arnold N._p._R. News.

Chinas surveillance state

"One of the crucial stories of the last few decades has been China's extraordinary surge to catch up with the rest of the world in manufacturing technology. And in economic military and cultural power, one of the other crucial stories of the last few decades has been the erosion of privacy in the online era and on that front China is pulling a distance ahead. China is in the process of assembling an immense and pervasive apparatus of surveillance, which will monitor and punish and reward, the most every day of behaviors and interactions of more than a fifth of the world's people, the prophets of doom of the pre computer age. Imagine that any such system would have to be imposed by a dictatorship even George Orwell did not envisage that the population of airstrip one would voluntarily surrender personal information to the state, the communist party of China is assuredly a dictatorship. But has it also understood that a great many people below? Leave privacy to be over rated. What is the reality of China's surveillance state how might develop in future? And is it a case of today? China tomorrow, the world, this is the foreign desk. They intend the system to record every single action transaction by each Chinese citizen, whether it's economic transactions social actions are moral behavior. And then in the end create the system that ideally, in real time can sanction you and censor your or reward. You also, we've known for a long time that Goodland Facebook's business motor profit revenue has come from essentially selling our attention and that requires having a sense of what we interested in also kind of maximize the value of our time spent on decision. But I think maybe we just the fact that for all the convenience truly the enjoyment, we might get from these services. There is a price to be paid into the day some. Oh, my friends, when we want to talk about something that we think, well, public Ed attention from the police, we tried to, like, okay, let's meet offline less meeting cafe. And to have a discussion more and more. I don't want to talk about. Real issues out, like we had wayball. You're listening to the foreign desk on monocle twenty four with me, Andrew Miller on today show on joined by Caroline can and keisters matter, Caroline can is an editor a China dialogue, and the author of under red skies, memoir of growing up in China. Caroline joins us here in the studio in London and Kayce strip matter is a journalist and the author of we have been harmonized life in China's surveillance state. He joins us from Copenhagen welcome both KAI. I'll start with you. Just so we can define some terms here and make it clear. Exactly what we're talking about. China's surveillance state as referred to in the subtitle of your book is a common phrase. I suspect it's one of those, which is rather more talked about than understood. So when we talk about China's surveillance state. What is it exactly? We are talking about. Well, actually we are talking about a whole youth thing now. China was always the dictatorship. It was always a civilian state, but what heating paying. The communist party's doing now that they're basically re inventing their dictatorship with twenty-first-century information technology with artificial intelligence, and with big data and stuff. So basically we're going to see something developing their that the world has never seen that before. Caroline, what's your sense of it as somebody who lives in Beijing? Because a recurring theme of your book, certainly in the time you've been alive since one thousand nine hundred nine is one of state intrusion into people's lives, which would be regarded as extrordinary in most countries. Is it your sense that it is exceleron getting exponentially, because of the technology and the way that Kyd describes? I think when I was younger, there was a time when there was more and more freedom, and especially with the development internet. But then clearly like since the year two thousand twelve or two hundred thirteen I could feel that freedom has been shrinking. And now as kaija said, almost every street in Beijing any city. I you see the sec- TV's cameras catching any images of people whatever people are doing. I also have the fear that Wease the big data technology like people would ever they do Welby, so closely monitored. And to me, that is quite worrying, Koi, again, to return just to the basic idea of how this actually functions. We're not talking yet. Are we about one immense, centralized technological panel to knishes still a, a mishmash of overlapping dot networks? It is at the moment. Yes. Very much. So. I mean, a lot has been written, for example, about the Social Credit system, which is part of this whole effort, but it's only one piece of the puzzle, and there are many, many other different pieces of the puzzle and of course, the central government tries to sort of get a grip on all of this, and maybe especially the state security apparatus would like to have in the end one big database. But of course, the big question is like in all those used bureaucracies, will they actually be able to make it work exactly in that way? But even if they won't I would say there is enough to be worried about Carolina Social Credit system, which is something which is attracted a lot of attention in the last couple of years in particular, again, I think the some of the reporting of it may have focused perhaps overly on the lurid science fiction imagination of it, as Chinese citizen, who lives in China. How does it affect you on a day to day? Level as you go about your life. It is not like something that you see every day. Oh, you feel like getting so close to your every day. Maybe there's something that you don't have access to review your own Social Credit. Like the only thing I noticed in my life, a kind of, related to sort of crowded is, there's alipay like an app by Alibaba and there's a function of borrowing money. And if we repay back the money in time that you cried you score at rising. So that is the only thing I see so far about it about, of course, I heard stories about people who don't pay money in time, and they got the candle blocked from going to buy a train tickets or of flight tickets. And this kind of like being black list, and I don't know how was you up, like least how do you get rid of that list? So that is something that I, I think that will affect the people's live. Corey, how does that differ, though, or how might it different future from credit writing systems that you have in any developed country, really whereby an frankly, not unreasonably if it becomes the case that you are a credit risk? If you have a history of paying back, things late or not at all, then it does become increasingly hard for you to borrow money or get a mortgage. How different scale we talking about here in, in the Chinese experience. Well, the interesting thing is that actually Allah systems, probably were sort of starting point for the Chinese system, but the main difference, of course, is that it doesn't restrict itself to financial transactions the aim of the government in the end is they intend the system to record every single action in transaction by each Chinese citizen,

And then the Romanoff Royal family into disrepute as rumors that his womanizing and hard-drinking spread and even more dramatic the lurid accounts of the way his life, ended murdered in cold blood by group of Russian ours to Kratz just before Russia itself collapsed into a revolution, which swept away a monarchy, which had lasted a thousand years. But how much of what we think we know about Putin's. Life is true.

Hell latest book is the race to save the Romanoff's, welcome to all three of you. And let's start with recipe teams background because although the details of cited quite sketchy that hasn't stopped people fill in the gaps. So Douglas tell us what we do know. Well, we do know very little. You're exactly right. Most of his life is one big black hole. The family came to from northern Russia. Sometime in the sixteen hundreds and settled in a little town called Pokrovsky and the Tura river north of the city of two men, and they were basically peasants hard working folk, they ploughed fields, they fished they worked the land. They raise some livestock and. It was into this sort of typical peasant family that respecting was born and like most peasants, he didn't receive serious. Schooling registration was illiterate, much of his life and was just working as head generations of his forbears. And what about his name Boris, because that has been the subject of a certain amount of speculation hasn't it, it certainly has its said, unfortunate coincidence, that his name seems to suggest the kind of behavior for which he became the Torius. Then nameless, Putin was a family name adopted by an ancestor in the sixteen hundreds and passed down generation generation would suggest immediately to Russia near is a certain kind of debauchery a looseness the root of the of the word is, which is path or road.

Waiting for Mueller

"Robert Miller is thought to be near the end of his investigation into attempted Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen presidential elections Kadam Chaba discusses what to expect with the F. Jeff dyer. So welcome Kadam. We've grabbed ketamine is usually based in DC, but he's passing through London the moments. We grabbed him to pick his brains and all to do with the Russian vista Gatien. Ketamine have been reports in the last week that Robert Mueller the special counsel looking into plenty of links between the Trump campaign twenty sixteen in Russia that he's about to finish his investigation. What does that actually mean? What does it mean to say that he's going to finish the investigation or we're going to get the report sometime very soon? Well, he began Anna's work in may twenty seventeen. So we're coming up to the two year Mark this year when he finishes his investigation when he's decided that there are no more indictments. He wants to bring when he decided the investigatory work that he's doing his completed then he will file a report to the attorney general. And we assume there will be some announcement that Mr. molars finished his work, the probe is completed. And then the question becomes whether. We're going to get to see that report. So you took us through the actual process. What then happens the report when it goes from Miller's office to the attorney general. So this is going to be the big bone of contention in the coming months mobile file report to the attorney general who is William bar. He's was recently confirmed to the position at his Senate confirmation hearings. He shifted the ground quite remarkably previously. Everyone had assumed an expected that we're gonna get to see the report that Moore writes, he pointed out that regulations governing Muller's work, call his report, a, quote, unquote, confidential document, and so Mr. bar has said I will get polars report that report is going to be confidential and I will do my own summary of the airport, which I will give to congress in the public. That's going to be the thing that folks are battling over in the months. Democrats have said they will subpoena millers report, they'll do everything in their power to make it public Mr. bars being quite clear that he considered it become. Dential the other thing that we don't have a good sense of at the moment is what Muller's report actually looks like. So you mentioned the Democrats are going to do what they can get this report into public. The Democrats do not control the house of representatives of what tools do they have to take anything that moolah reveals and put it into the public domain how much power do they actually have no was primarily two things. One is that they can subpoena the documents and the DOJ resists, and that will ultimately go to court, and a judge will decide whether the documents have to be turned over or not the other thing they can do is demand that Muller himself or prosecutors on his team come and testify for the house, and they can also subpoena those individuals, and again, if there's resistance to that, and it will go to court, I think it's quite likely. We'll see Muller call testify, and I can't imagine why there'd be objections that question is what he would say what he would reveal. I mean, there's an expectation that Mr. Mueller throughout his career has not been someone who is prone to. Divulge incomes and tons of gossip information, he's a very by the book kind of guy he's brought several indictments. And what we may see him do say, well, I brought in diamonds where I thought it was appropriate to do. So and I didn't bring diamonds where I didn't feel as appropriate, and it wouldn't be right for me to start criticizing people for stuff that I didn't charge them for some of our listeners might remember back in the Clinton presence say the report by Ken Starr, which was a very long and at times, extremely lurid document detailing goings on in the Oval Office when Bill Clinton was president. Should we expect something some though this time or is it going to be very different? I think if anything we should expect the exact opposite of that the regulations Muller works under were introduced in nineteen ninety nine as a direct reaction to the independent counsel investigations that had gone on before William bar said at his Senate hearings at you know, steal J palsy, not to criticize people I thought that you don't charge them for rod Rosenstein at a conference. From Washington this week made the same point, which is the DOJ shouldn't be criticizing people. If they're not going to charge them for that conduct. I'm particularly after the two thousand sixteen election where you had famously or infamously James Komi to former FBI director when he gave conference announcing that he wouldn't bring charges against Hillary Clinton. He also criticized the way she handled her emails, and there's no total agreement amongst DJ and former DOJ folks in Washington that that was the wrong thing to do. I think what you're going to see here is if Muller hasn't charged someone it's likely that we're not gonna see a lot of

The new wild and crazy life of Amazon's Jeff Bezos (The 3:59, Ep. 518)

"Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm Ben FOX Ruben Jackson. So Jeff Bezos is public life. Took an interesting turn Amazon's founder and CEO has maintained a mostly positive image as a press shy. Geek, but on Thursday night, his personal life spilled out onto view after he revealed an apparent blackmail plot by the National Enquirer supermarket tabloid which was threatening to publish his racy pics, including if I remember correctly, a below the belt selfie as they described it that he sent to his mistress. What's going on? Like, I I guess to connect this to the fact that like we work for CNN and not a fellow tabloid. What are your thoughts about this like as far as like, how does it impact bazo side as an impact Amazon like anything about that definitely puts basis on the forefront of a lot of different kinds of discussions national security discussions because the Trump administration is all wrapped up in the whole national fire thing Muller investigation is all wrapped up in the national choir thing, so it takes basis as a gigantic figure as the world's which is man. And also, the leader of one of the most powerful companies takes them all out of being that like large figure on tech stage and make some a larger than life figure on a world stage dry, politics and other other issues, and he was connected to that. That's a great point. He was connected to that initially through the Washington Post, but the Washington Post and Trump was kind of at loggerheads with bazo so ready to begin with about Washington Post's, cover. Edge and calling it the Amazon Washington Post and all this other stuff. But this really does seem to insert him into these long term other controversies that Trump has been having to deal with it. So so that is definitely a weird thing. The other interesting aspect is what is due to public persona at this point. And I wrote about this on Friday. He seems to be enjoying a really nice PR coup. Everybody could have been talking about as racy photos. What about his judgment? What's he doing yet as long term marriage? And now all of a sudden, he's sending photos, basically, dick pegs to his mistress. Like what's going on here? And I it seems like he's really presenting himself as a hero at this point. I think a lot of people it's been fun. And I shared that you notice this being Amazon's reporter that at the same time. There are a lot of sort of like who knew that I would be unjust as aside for like totally flipping the script on this attempt to blackmail, the richest man in the world, which I don't know how is that was to begin with. But it's happening in the same. People are sort of there's a noise at Amazon in New York City still over these two there's annoyance at Amazon over this tipping only going into base pay for drivers issue. So there's a lot of reasons why people there's there's a kind of public relations thread that's negative towards Basil's on a lot of other fronts, but this because it's such juicy lurid stuff. The main thing we are talking about our mix. All right. Let's change gears completely Joan you a chance to test out the magically a argh Lassus Sundance. You watch something called the a jester's tale using the schedule. Can you tell us a bit about the Justice tale? What was your right? It was really weird. I did three experiences magically Paulos at Sundance two of them were made by magically on the third was this gestures tale experience that was made by a guy who does other other AR experiences in the past. But he doesn't work from Ashley if you're just using their technology, and it was really weird. It had like this YouTube pop star in it named poppy who like her her brand is just being aggressively weird. So if you know anything about poppy, you get a sense of just how strange this experience was there was a live actor in it. A little boy who was trapped behind the trash behind a wall. And I had to choose whether to kill him or kill myself. There is a live actor Graham, no hologram. And then he was also alive actor. Well, they. Yeah. So there were there was a floating ball park that magically helped with there's like a floating ball of dots. That was an artificial intelligence that was doing reverse turing test on me, it was trying to determine trying to do testing me on whether or not I was human and asking me questions about stuff that these what are called volume metric assets, there'll be holograms of people like this little boy and his mother and poppy would stand in this room. And I'd walk around them. It was no none of this really is your sense of what the story was supposed to be like in this entrance. It was super trippy. So it's hard to it's kind of hard to describe. So the cost of this had side is two thousand two hundred ninety five dollars considering that very big price. Do you think magically is going to be able to really inject a lot more enthusiasm into the world? Right. I mean, they can even termed this first addition of their device, a creator addition it's designed for people like Assad who made this experience to get their hands on it make weird or crazy or interesting or tearjerking experiences. And then they can have magically to magically three something. That's a little more accessible, that's the idea. Anyway.

"Some people really love those kind of Easter eggs and some people roll their eyes at them. And so you're, you know, you're always sort of risking something. When when you drop like something that like that in the prequel. Finally mushroom is sort of giving a final word in this book things there's something there that we should be connecting Tyrian. I never I didn't think that's kind of interesting. If if it is I'm not sure what it is. I mean there was that one quote about the gods, which is some someone similar to what Tyrian says while he's waiting his execution in king's landing in in the cells to Jamie. The gods are some somewhat parallel to cousin Orson. And he is a little person, and he is somewhat. Irreverent? Maybe he's a he's a type he's a type I don't know beyond that what I'm supposed to draw from those parallels. I think because that's I do like some of the some of the lurid details mushroom gave in at gave us here. Remind me a lot of Tyrians false confession in the Vale in front of lice air, and the you know, he confessed to making the bald man cry and to milking his his ill into someone's fish stew. And like all all this other. This just ri- bald bullshit, I think that him and mushroom and be good drinking buddies or they'd hate each other because they're too alike or they'd hate. Yeah. They'd hate each other as because all mushroom it sees the amount of privilege. The Tyrian has all all tearing concedes guys squandering. You know? That's the last point for Steve.

"It was a crime so shocking. So unimaginable that it left much of the country speechless early on the morning of April nineteen nineteen ninety-five a disgruntled US army that named Timothy McVeigh filled with hatred for minorities and resentment of the country's leaders set off a massive truck bomb outside. The Alfred e Maura federal office building in Oklahoma City, killing one hundred sixty eight injuring more than six hundred eighty of us nineteen of the dead were children, most of whom including four infants were attending a daycare center for the federal a workers inside the building in the days that followed reporters and editors at Newsweek magazine were among the first to notice that this crime up to that moment. The worst act of domestic terrorism in the country's history Bora chilling resemblance to one that was graphically detailed years earlier. In a lurid underground novel called the Turner died. Series written under a pseudonym by an eccentric. Former physics professor and Neo Nazi named William Pierce. The book had become a near bible for white supremacists. Than anti-semites. It described a race war that tears the country asunder triggered by an effort orchestrated by Jews, of course, to take the guns away from law abiding Americans in response white Christian patriots fight back and set off a truck bomb outside the F B I building in Washington as soon as I heard what happened in Oklahoma City. I just had this gut reaction one student of the paramilitary right told Newsweek it straight out of the Turner diaries. The Newsweek story proved prophetic it was soon learned that inside McVeigh's escape. Gar was an envelope. Containing excerpts from the Turner diaries. It was graphic evidence of how lurid racist and antisemitic writings can inspire horrific hate crimes lesson. Well worth remember. In the aftermath of the slaughter inside. Pittsburgh's tree of life synagogue. It's our subject on this episode of buried treasure. I'm Michael Isikoff. Chief investigative correspondent for Yahoo news. And I'm Dan CLYDE and chief of Yahoo news. You know, Danny I still vividly. Remember our reporting right after the Oklahoma City bombing and becoming aware for the first time of this obscene, novel, call the Turner diaries and reading it. It's sort of, you know, the the imagery of African Americans right out of scenes from birth of a nation. The imagery of Jews as conspiring orchestrating all this behind the lines. And some of the details that we laid out in that story in all begins with something called the Cohen act. A law passed by a Jewish member of congress to eliminate private ownership of firearms and then jack-booted federal agents going door to door season. Weapons from law abiding Americans and then white Christian patriots. Go underground to fight back. And then end up bombing. The j Edgar Hoover building the FBI building in Washington DC seven hundred people die. This is in this in this novel and one of the terrorists calls up the Washington Post taking credit saying white America shall with. And you know, it's been awhile since I've thought about it. But hearing about what's place, the treeline synagogue last Saturday, and the screens of Robert Bowers on his social media accounts talking about how Jews must die and he's going to save the country from some Jewish conspiracy to bring immigrants in it did immediately bring back those showing words from the Turner diaries. Yeah. There are just Erie. And disgusting parallels. That we see between happened back when Oklahoma City took place in Robert powers now, and it is part of this dark cycle of American history that you know, despite the progress, which is undeniable on there still these deep strains in this country of racial hatred and anti-semitism and the historian Richard Hostetter wrote in a famous essay nine hundred sixty four the paranoids style of American politics. These kinds of vile conspiracy theories about our fellow Americans always lurking beneath the surface, and then for whatever reason from time to time they bubble up. And I think we're seeing another one of these bubbling ups, and it's very scary stuff. There's some really we talked about some really important parallels here, but they're also a lot of differences. You talked about the the Turner diaries that book being passed around. And you can imagine some dog eared copy of the Turner diaries being pass around two members of these area and white supremacist Neo Nazi groups. Look you go on the internet now. And there is the equivalent of the Turner diaries everywhere, you look, and so the proliferation of these kinds of us, and the the kind of echo chamber of the.
