"Also going to pride events in Atlanta and Oakland, ping Pong, and PR news. Wall Street is closed tomorrow for the Labor Day holiday, you're listening to NPR news. And in the WNYC newsroom, I'm Tiffany Hansen. Former president Donald Trump is raising money at this hour for congressman Lee zelton, the Republican candidate for New York governor WNYC's John Campbell has more. Trump is set to appear at a fundraiser for Zelda on the Jersey Shore. The event is likely to provide an influx of cash for the Zelda campaign, which has been significantly outraised by democratic governor Kathy hochul. But Trump is in a popular figure in his native state of New York. His approval ratings hover in the lower 30s, and Democrats have repeatedly pounced on Zelda over his ties to the former president, the Long Island congressman, voted against certifying the results of the 2020 election. The fundraiser is being hosted by the chair of family, real estate moguls who own the saint Regis hotel and a number of other properties in Manhattan. And the NYPD released body cam footage of a police killing in The Bronx in May that raises new questions about the fatal use of force, WNYC's Matt Katz has more. The footage released Friday fails to confirm the NYPD's account that 25 year old ramik Smith fired first at officers lightly wounding one. It doesn't clearly show Smith shooting, nor an officer getting hit. And it doesn't depict officers finding the victim's weapon. The footage also does not shed light on why they were even pursuing Smith who suffered from mental illness. But it's difficult to see every frame, and the camera's audio wasn't activated for most of the time. In May, the incident prompted a fiery response for mayor Eric Adams because he said Smith should have already been locked up due to a prior arrest. The shooting also faced scrutiny because the officers, part of Adam's new neighborhood safety teams, pulled up to Smith in an unmarked car. In the city's department of consumer and worker protection is suing Starbucks. The allegations are related to the layoff of union organizer Austin Locke, who was fired in July. Shortly after workers at his Astoria coffee shop voted to unionize, the city alleges the company violated the city's fair work week law and is seeking locks reinstatement and back pay, a spokesperson for Starbucks says the company does not comment on pending litigation.

This is all things considered from NPR news, I'm Michelle Martin. In President Biden's speech Thursday, he pressed voters to go to the polls. Now that's a typical message in an election year for an elected leader, but his reasoning was anything but typical. He said this year it isn't just a matter of his party winning or losing seats in Congress, but if people who don't actually believe in democracy taking control of the reins of government. Maga forces are determined to take this country backwards. Backwards to an America. Where there is no right to choose. Needless to say he was referring to the political movement around his predecessor former president Trump, who, not surprisingly responded in his own speeches on Saturday when he held a rally in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania with the candidates he's endorsed. He's

That's the finding of a new report, issued today by a task force of attorneys and advocates convened by the city's jail oversight board. WNYC's Matt Katz explains. Incarcerated people who are transgender experience sexual assault, slurs hurled by fellow detainees and officers, the use of incorrect pronouns, and according to the task force, placement in housing units that don't match their gender. As of March, most trans women and all trans men and city custody were in housing units that did not align with their gender identity. I was sent to the minister. And I'm like, what am I doing here? After Naomi waters was arrested, she was identified in court documents as female, but she nonetheless ended up in a male facility. She said officers looked at her in just decided she belonged with the men. When she asked for a sports bra, a female correction officer made a snide remark about her breasts, not being real. I feel like as if they felt like I was trying to trick the system in some way. And it wasn't that I'm just trying to live my shoe from walking my truth. I would like to be treated as such. Being misgendered can follow you through the system and be difficult to reverse. That's according to Deborah laloy, an attorney with The Bronx defenders who serves on the task force. They found that living in a housing unit that doesn't match gender identity not only violates city rules, it's a threat to public safety. What often happens is that in those few hours or days or weeks before a trans person is transferred to the correct facility, they are often assaulted. They are often raped and there's no accountability when those things happen. Today, the task force is releasing a detailed report with recommendations for improving treatment of transgender and gender nonconforming detainees, including better

It's northbound just after the first exit for Quantico one four 8 Russell road. It's at the end of the ramp that would come from Russell road, which was blocked.

And this is it for 95, not for Virginia though, a couple other things to note, traveling 15 in haymarket, southbound after leitner road, there's a crash watch for possible police direction. And if you're westbound 66 from centerville through Gainesville, route 29 to route 29, left lane in some capacity blocked all weekend for the transformation project, just as caution, no delay, we are watching it. We're checking now in Maryland on branch avenue, listener said it was northbound, the ramp that would go to the inner loop of four 95, you will want to stay to the left to get by the crash on the ramp one off the roadway. Eastern avenue, west at Michigan avenue in northeast, we have a crash watch for response, and also in the district, southbound two 95, the ramp that would go inbound 11th street bridge, watch for police activity.

"The Russian disinformation, they've been telling us for days as a lie in a conspiracy theory and crazy and immoral to believe is in fact totally and completely true. Well, it's not. But how did one dark corner of the American Internet create a worldwide Kremlin conspiracy theory? From WNYC in New York, this is on the media. I'm Matt Katz. Also on this week's show, what it's like collecting digital evidence of war crimes. Local Russians were using TikTok to fill military convoys and a lot of those videos have been collected and that allows us to track the movements of Russian convoys. Plus a club of foreign correspondents in the 1920s and 30s witnessed the biggest story of their lives. The rise of autocracy. So if the world has centuries of experiences, with kings and emperors, who are these people who claim that their authority descends from the people, but they disdain hereditary rule. It's all coming up after this. It can make a singer go silent and keep a boy from growing tall. Stress. On radiolab. Listen wherever you get podcasts. Listener supported WNYC studios. From WNYC in New York, this is on the media. I'm Brooke gladstone. And just for this week, I'm handing the hosting duties over to my WNYC colleague Matt Katz. He covers public safety for our local newsroom and it's multiple awards to his name. For instance, he won a Peabody for his investigation of governor Chris Christie's involvement in the scandal known as bridgegate, say you know, he's no slouch. What I'm saying is you're in safe hands, listeners. I'll see you all next week. Take it away, Matt. Thank you, Brooke. This week, Netflix announced that it's bringing back servants of the people to its streaming service. Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky plays a history teacher whose rant about corruption in the government goes viral and propels him to the presidency. Like in the real world, zelensky's character looks eagerly to his European neighbors to the west. When then German Chancellor Angela Merkel calls zelensky's character to tell him Ukraine has been admitted into the European Union, he soon learns the truth. She actually meant to call Montenegro. The foes in the show ring true two, a vulgar joke he makes about Putin got the series canceled in Russia. In the last few weeks, the fictional history teacher turned president has become a real president turned history teacher in a virtual visit to the British House of Commons, zelensky quoted Shakespeare and Churchill. In Germany, he reminded the parliament of the vow to never again let a dictator exterminate a people and about Germany's own invasion of Ukraine in World War II. And an army fatigues on a large screen before Congress, zelensky asked American lawmakers to remember. Remember September the 11th. A terrible day in 2001 when he will try to turn your cities independent territories. And battlefield. When innocent people were attacked. While zelensky used history in his campaign to recruit help from the west, the Russian disinformation machine was busy with its own campaign to spread conspiracy and division. The focus bio labs or more specifically the United States developing or helping develop biological weapons and laboratories across Ukraine. Ben Collins is a senior reporter for NBC News covering disinformation, extremism and the Internet, and he says, while this may sound like a far fetched plot, it's really a digital age revival. It's not that new in the grand scope of Russian propaganda history to accuse adversaries of having biological weapons, and then using them yourself. They did this in Syria, several years ago, in Aleppo, they tried to claim that the Syrians somehow gas themselves or faked a chemical weapons attack when they were the perpetrators themselves. And they also did this with a spy poisoning. British police now believe that former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with a nerve agent. The government said it was novichok a poison developed in the Soviet area and that the Russian state must be behind the attack. They claimed that it's actually the U.S. making nova chuck. Maybe in Ukraine and that spy, that's how he got poisoned with American no track, but of course that makes no sense. It was later identified as FSB agents who pulled off that attack. So this is a Russian propaganda operation that has done this consistently. What are they alleging? What are biolabs? It sounds like something out of a marvel movie. They are research facilities that don't study things like bioweapons or the coronavirus or whatever. But that's what is being pushed by the Russian government now. You'll see talk by the Russian government that they are making specific coronaviruses in these labs to target ethnic Russians, but not Ukrainians. And it's being flown over the border by birds who are taking the coronavirus bypassing the Ukrainians bypassing Europeans and infecting your Russians. This is a Russian style conspiracy theory, I guess. But that's not exactly the origin of it at this moment, right? That's exactly right. I think a really important history here is to go back to just a few weeks ago before the war and see what Vladimir Putin was talking about too with the Russian government was talking about as their pretext for the war. They were not talking about Ukrainian biolabs that did not come up. What did come up was do not suffocation. The idea that the Ukrainian government was run by Nazis, actual Nazis. And that they needed to go in there and get rid of them, and then install a separate government that is more aligned with Vladimir Putin. And what you can see is this not landing with the global far right. This D notification idea. You saw for weeks traditional allies in the propaganda spaces. China or India, Pakistan, even weirdly enough. Uncommon allies, but allies against the west in propaganda. They did not buy in on this the notification thing. Didn't make any sense to them. And in fact, the American far right didn't buy it either. The American far right was like, what are you guys talking about? Like, do you what? The characters that you guys are bringing up now are new to us. And we need some comfort food. And the comfort food to them is Anthony Fauci, or Joe Biden or something like that. So on the day of the invasion, you can see this, we worked with this company called pira, the CEO of Welton Chang did this data. And you can see that there are like single digit posts about bio labs on the top 15 far right American social networks in the days before the invasion. And then on the day of the invasion, there's hundreds, and then after that thousandths, and you can see that they are trying to find a reason why Vladimir Putin is not the bad guy, because they've been told for years he's not the bad guy. He's sort of like Donald Trump. He's smart. He's savvy. He's tough. When they went into Ukraine and they found these labs, they believe that the deep state is possibly going to use a bio with and on Russian people. Because they've been just like they were collecting our DNA in China..

We continue our series with a look at the aggressive monitoring of Muslim communities in New York and beyond. In the years since September 11th as W N Y. C is Matt Katz reports. The story really begins 30 years before that, with the N Y P D's infiltration of a different group altogether. The NYPD has long run intelligence operations focused on ethnic and political groups, Italians and anarchists a century ago. Germans and Japanese during World War two And in the 19 sixties, the Black Panthers led by Bobby Seale, We want an immediate end to police brutality and murder of black people. Police at the time investigated, spied on and infiltrated the Black Panthers. But in 1971, something extraordinary happens. 21 Black Panthers charged with conspiracy to bomb police stations and stores in New York City where exonerated of all charges Five days after acquittal. The Black Panthers were joined by gay rights activists, anti war protesters and other leftists Ensuing the NYPD Saying police infiltrators set them up to get arrested. Let me say that the spirit of the people is greater than any technology in the world class had become so extremely outlandish. They were forced to resort to the ultimate weapon for organized fourth murder.

There were photos of people just packed shoulder to shoulder And then you you plug in the delta variant which were saying okay. We're finding a thousand times more virus in people's noses relative to to pass variance cave. Somebody sneezes right. Somebody breathes too hard out of their nose. You have to think okay. That's a thousand times more virus. That's interesting that immediate space. Your little pig pen area. And if you're that you're that you're so close together like you're gonna have more opportunities for transmission with the delta variant relative to the alpha ovarian right I mean i attended lollapalooza. Like two thousand seven i remember seeing radiohead and they did this thing where they dropped the barriers right before the show started and everybody just rushed forward in your packed in and i was you know i could barely breathe or i was just so packed in next to people in that situation. Delta is gonna find a way to get from from nose to nose and so. It's thought that. I would say eighty ninety percent of outdoor scenarios or probably completely safe right. Because you're gonna be far enough away from people to be fine but if you're really really packed into a tight space than yeah. You're giving the the virus. A better chance of spreading outdoors and emily in white plains. You're on wnyc. Hi emily high. So i had a quick question And your guest touched upon it earlier regarding bouncers restaurant staff being able to validate the vaccination documentation How concerned would we have to be about people. Trying to present false vaccination documentation by the dow is a huge question rolling around in my mind. Once i saw the how the nyc cover pass works or kovic safe app works. You're essentially just uploading of a photo of your vaccination card to the app. It's in one of our reporters matt katz kind of looked at this over the weekend I haven't really interested to see how they plan to validate those records without Tying it into some type of database of of records you know. I think one of the pros around the excelsior passes that it's directly tied into the state database uses. Qr codes which You know her little trickier to To fraud But i think going based off of the photo system i am. I am wondering what safeguards are going to be in place to prevent people from either sharing. I mean maybe. I shouldn't be giving people ideas. But you know sharing their vaccination cards among each other taking photos in an uploading them into the apps you know. What training are they. Going to provide two bouncers to really You know look at those. Scans and say oh. Yeah this is the person. I am matched up their name to this vaccination card I think ideally what we need is a federal system For a vaccine passport because the federal government knows everyone in the country that has been vaccinated but there was so much political upheaval over vaccine passports earlier. This year that I haven't heard any indication that the feds are are moving towards a vaccine passport or system that could at least underlay Local systems and we thank our health and science editor.

The should i killed at agia last night. The rams will it's incredible It this definitely reminded me of the msg parking garage scene in highlander. By the where. It's just like a character you don't know when you kind of do but not really because the movie's just getting going and they just have a fucking epic fight for a reason you don't quite understand. That's the problem is that you're not getting christopher walken to fight. Yeah fistfight or any other shooter guns. He can handle that's words. I don't think so either. I think movie is probably better. If it's eric or actually. Ellis cody is an angel. You're be defined. This is angel powers. And he's just fighting angels just kind of where. The movie was going because i used. I'd seen this movie twice before both times supremely fucked up and both times like kind ended. Didn't understand what was going. Yeah but i thought this time around watching still high but being attention that like. That's where it was going because they kept saying something about like. You know like the person on earth is going to have all the angel powers but it's a man and oku like he'll be an angel. His name is michael. That fucking john travolta movies right there. I mean amazingly. I never rented this. I was like just. It was all the time.

It's in this towards the end of this. When she says you cared earn cuts to walk in between and that was the trailer that was a big section of the trail. I saw this a ton growing up. Not like maybe like five five to ten times probably as an adolescent and i started to confuse them. Confuse the plot of this with eight millimeter right. Yeah because he's gonna find that evil soul and he's going to have that snuff film right right. Oh i no. That's nicholas phone. But it's interesting though because snuff film and eight millimeter right. I can see the connection with the creepy colonel and shit but also isn't nicholas cage and city of angels that's is wings of desire with good Again that's true. Now let me ask you this.

"Matt Katz, and you're listening to the tick away. I've been speaking to Andrea Bernstein about the New York attorney general's criminal investigation into the Trump organization's business dealings. Right. So Andrew, what has Trump's reaction been? I know I haven't seen him tweet anything because he's not allowed to tweet anything right now, but I imagine he's fuming over this. Yes. So initially, the Trump organization and Trump did not respond. Save for a montage of video clips that Eric Trump Turned over to the Washington Post, which were Leticia James, basically speaking before she was elected it as attorney general about the importance of Holding trump to legal account. And obviously the even before Trump was president. And while he was president, this has been something that the New York attorney general has worked on. There's been two very high profile cases that the attorney general worked on. One was Thebes Trump University Case. And then one was the Trump Foundation case. And in both cases, the Trump Organization was required to pay money to New York State. So when she was running for office, she Expressed her commitment to pursuing these kinds of cases, and the Trump family has used this to express that This is an illegitimate investigation after This news came out. Trump did post a statement on his Web site. And it said, quote if you can run for a prosecutor's office, pledging to take out your enemies and be elected to that job by partisan voters who wish to enact political retribution. And we are no longer a free constitutional democracy. And, of course, Trump himself has been accused of when he was president trying to use the Justice Department to enact political retribution. What's next in the case, then what should we be looking out for in the next several weeks or on this matter several weeks? Unclear. I mean, we know we can tell that the that they're still gathering evidence. They're still speaking to witnesses. There is continued president pressure on the chief operating officer of the Trump Organization. Allen Wastler Berg, and he's denied any wrongdoing. But there has been a very close look at his finances and the finances of Isil. Berg's family and a number of people that I've spoken to who used to work in the Manhattan D. A s office have said that they expect That putting pressure on whistle Berg would be the standard way to go when you're trying to put together a case against Trump, because, of course, in these criminal cases, you have to improve. You have to prove that there was intent. You have to prove that these valuation differences were done deliberately. And because Trump doesn't use email. The easiest way to do that is through witness testimony about what Trump understood If there's not written documentation, so we know they're looking for that. At some point, there could be an indictment. Now there's some clocks running out and again. We know this from the D a himself because when he was arguing his case, he said, the statutes of limitation are going to run out so they begin to run out. Soon. And after all, Trump was elected in 2016, and we're coming up on the fifth anniversary of that, so There. There's a pressure from statutes of limitations and also the district attorney in Manhattan, who has now made this case. A major priority is Leaving office at the end of the year. He's not running for re election. So sometime in the next calendar year, there could be criminal charges against Trump, his family, his associates or his business again. They've denied wrongdoing. Right? We don't know that clock and we won't know until it happens. And you'll likely keep us updated. As it happens. Andrea Bernstein is the co host of W M.

On the afternoon of December. 10th 2019 City Detective Joseph Seals had been found executed in a cemetery and there was now a gunfight at a kosher grocery store nearby. List. Miguel Rodriguez and immigrant from Ecuador who worked at the market was dead. And soon his widow was asking great wall. Somebody hate the Jewish people. The Jewish people gave my husband a job. How could they do this? Since the shooting Gray Walls office launched an online portal where people can report discrimination and a state task force released guidelines and how to provide students with anti bias education. Haven't Bernstein, Jewish leader who now runs Community Security Service, which helps protect synagogues was also on the scene in Jersey City. That day. We said Mourners cottage for the victims and stood in the synagogue that was shared the wall of the kosher market. And as a nominee, and I've seen bullet holes on shell casings and things I just never imagined seeing in a synagogue in my lifetime, Bernstein recalls a dark December last year, there were regular attacks, an Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn and a fatal machete attack and a Hanukkah celebration in months in New York. Officials say it's talents in both the Muncie and Jersey City incidents appear to be followers of the anti Semitic black Hebrew is relate movement. Pamela Johnson, a Black Jersey city resident who runs the Jersey City Anti violence coalition, said in the aftermath, Jewish and black leaders held a joint food and toy giveaway and hosted a Hanukkah Kwanza dinner because we have to live. Amongst each other, and we do want to have a relationship, and we want to be able to make sure that we called you in respect to one another right. But for Johnson, the high profile nature of the incident obscures the anonymous gun violence that often occurs in Jersey City. Just last week, a mother of four was shot and killed on the sidewalk, two doors down from the kosher market. Didn't hear about it. Did you? Are you sure? McFadden, a cafeteria worker and a high school and a mother of four, was shot dead in front of her kids last Friday.

N. Y. C.'s Matt Katz is bringing us stories from a global refugee crisis in his series called unsettled and he's focusing on a country we don't hear much about when it comes to refugees Japan today we need a couple of newly arrived immigrants from Cameroon and Tunisia were broadening the idea of what it means to be Japanese I met a lot of new immigrants to Japan and inevitably we all got around to talking about the same thing the wireless is something else public bathrooms in Japan are super clean welcoming and high tech exceed the and forget myself and I'm just comfortable taking on lifetime hindering him leasing rose recently fled a civil war in her country of Cameroon in central Africa and she's now making a long shot attempts at winning asylum in Japan which is notoriously resistant to immigration she only ended up here because she happened to secure a Japanese visa Japan a country she knew almost nothing about was our fastest way to safety she's been here almost a year now and she's whole areas actually my countrymen if you have to use the public toilet does the worst thing that can happen to you despite our laughter rose has plenty of worries about her nineteen year old son who seeking asylum in Minnesota about the police beating back home in Cameroon that left her with a scar and lingering head injury rose didn't want us to use her real name because her family is still in danger and still talking about the simple joy of using Japanese toilets the excitement of something new that brings welcome solace to cope any where you find yourself you free enough to do a lot of adjustments most of the refugees if not or that I've made I just Japan doesn't welcome immigrants in part because keeping foreigners away he keeps Japan unique strict rules govern life right down to the sorting of trash the thinking is that people just can't come and learn how to be Japanese but as migrants seeking safety or living wage increasingly moved to Japan they're challenging that idea and I don't mean that he'd built Correa from Tunisia she's applying for refugee status in Japan because she says back home she faced discrimination for being gay you know you've only been here a few weeks but do you think like if you were to live here for a long time that you could become Japanese or do you feel like you've always got to be an outsider for me I think I can be one hundred percent believe me because this country if you like connected with long time ago it's not new unlike rose that he knew a lot about Japan before she got here she's a huge fan of anime specially it's music Japanese Sir maybe they do this like rose now he will have a tough time convincing Japan to let her stay of the thousands of immigrants just a few dozen get refugee status each year but in the meantime she's allowed to live freely while her application is reviewed no heed adores Japan she likes how they don't throw their trash on the street that trains run on time that religious people don't push their views on to others she sees Japan as a refuge but for the like minded she chose Japan she didn't randomly end up here like many refugees which she knows it'll be hard to win legal status I'm okay with that when a country's tried to protect freedom and protect its values and its tradition
