"The book is what next chicago and you were just sharing something. We had to go to the break. So keep talking there right. I had been downtown at a concert. Looking at the beautiful skyline friend said to me this is the beauty of chicago the brilliance of it and i agreed with him but then i wondered how many people died this weekend. How many people got shot. It turned out to be jost fifty-six shot and nine killed in the sad part. Eric was it. I realize that was a good weekend for chicago. The duality of chicago is that brilliant minds have always lived there that most people are warm open hearted generous spark capable and accomplished. Our universities are great. Our architecture is dramatic. The neighborhoods are great. The culture is fantastic. And yet and yet it's become an unlivable Greatly miss governed place so ads. Chicago goes so go all of our nation's great cities in my view and so goes our nation in the end. So i it's not feasible to ignore the plight of cities and all of the cities in our country. Now have been under great great pressure since the middle of last year and most of them are failing in in a dramatic way so something has to change here and i think it has to start at the community level. People have to get out of this sort of cognitive dissonance of thinking that this politics virtue you were asking. Why and how is it that this all can persist this politics of virtue of turning your head when you know that The forms of governance are failing that the values are failing. You turn your head because you don't wanna be that guy right. You don't wanna be that guy who calls out fatherless families rate who who calls out a culture which makes it so that young black men are not comfortable excelling academically. You don't want to be the person who calls that out at your upper west side dinner party because you might not get an invitation comeback right. This is part of what's gone wrong So i think we sort of need A new political party in our non-partisan local elections if the socialists can put six people on the city council of chicago which they did last time around adding five to one who was already there in one thousand nine hundred. Then i would say a new reform party of chicago can do something to and it's time for that. Well i want to ask you about it seems to me. I just finished watching. Rick berns as nine hundred ninety nine a documentary on new york and i thought to myself you know. Government rises to solve problems when they're not solved in the public sector so when you have a real the the negative side of capitalism the triangle shirt factory horrible conditions when you have people not governing themselves the government steps in and says we'll take care of it and then suddenly you get laws and regulations and the government grows and at some point that gets incredibly out of hand. You get somebody like a robert. Moses who's acting like a dictator. The government gets so big and people fail to understand. This is fundamentally against freedom against american principles and so talking to something. I know you deal with in the book but the issue of school choice. How is it that you can have these unions. Unions were originally formed because they needed to be formed but they have now become the enemy. They've gotten all this power and they're working against the common men and women of the cities by saying we don't want to give you choice in schools. We want your kids to go to these rat traps where they have to have cops and metal detectors. It's amazing to me that that basic idea of freedom especially in our cities. We don't talk about that as though that's an old fashioned jingoistic white nationalist idea. And you think well it's not it's it's meant for everybody freedom freedom of choice freedom freedom to choose where your kids go to school whether they go to school whether you want to home school them and we'll take them to a A church school. There's a school in chicago by the way chicago. Hope academy which was started by a friend of mine. Bob cousy a christian high school they are right in the inner city. They have done unbelievable work. And i think to myself boy. If we had ten of those across chicago it would everything. But i don't know if you're aware of that but it's it's you know only about maybe ten fifteen years old But to give people a choice that used to be a bedrock american idea. Now it's become sort of some kind of a conservative idea. You talk about school choice in here. There's a place called Legal prep charter high school. Where kids in one of the most violent dangerous neighborhoods of the whole city west garfield park are immersed in writing the guy who started. It was a lawyer law teacher who found through his work for another nonprofit. That kids just didn't have the basic writing skills to even get accepted to college and it really hit him hard since he was a young attorney and a legal writing teacher Working for another nonprofit that was encouraging kids to develop careers in law. He's he felt. There was a false promise so he started this charter school. It's worked very well. Kids are a writing at college level. Usually by their junior year of high school. They're a going on to college. They're aiming for jobs in the professions not necessarily law. That's just one success story. The problem is yes that the chicago teachers union is involved in a mad monopolistic power quest. They've convinced lightfoot to extend a ban on charter school growth. This at a time when charter school enrollment has grown greatly over ten years in chicago. While the public school district overall enrollment has been plummeting in other words. Parents and students are voting with their feet. But but the response is to clamp down on the thing that they want so added to that the democrats in the legislature passed a bill which included a little secret addition to To ban the closure of any more regular public schools for go. Roman that we're going to have to a ended there. This is astonishing stuff folks if you live in chicago know somebody who does you need to read. What next chicago matt rosenberg. Congratulations thank you. My pleasure world all.

"Has said that. This book It's a loving tribute to Chicago it's moving sensitive humane and trenchant critical assessment. Read it and weep. What else is in this book. We could go in so many different directions. I think i would accent. The success stories to there are people like daryl smith who did three years in prison at the age of eighteen on an involuntary manslaughter rap. Who came out and now at age. Fifty one is a pillar of the black community in the englewood neighborhood. A very dangerous tough neighborhood. He could move out. He owns ten residential properties. He does quite well. He's the mayor of englewood. I spend a day with him hearing his life story. There are people. Like daryl smith all over the place and they're part of the the strong fabric that exists still to some degree in many of these communities. He was one of the guys who when black lives. Protesters black lives matter. Protesters came to the local police station to To protest in favor of defunding police he was one of the middle aged black men who confronted them in the summer in the summer of twenty twenty when this happened and said no. We don't want that. We want more police and we want better police Darryl story made me think he inherited some of the ten properties he owns from his father and grandfather who came and worked hard in the factories and chicago. And i thought well this is interesting. Here's a black man who owns ten residential properties. If he were white somebody would be accusing him of white privilege. So what is this. Is this black privilege and it hit me. No this is an example of a family's life well lived. It's not a big leap from that to understand that this is the very thing we want for everybody and that one of the big takeaways is all of this starts at the bottom up families have to have it together. Citizens have to pay heed when policies go wrong. So there is no excuse for disengagement you get more of rotten governance if you tuned out. You have to pay attention when the teacher's union pushes for a cap on charter school growth. You have to pay attention when you learn that. The public employees pension debt is skyrocketing into the hundreds of billions over coming decades. You have to pay attention. When the court system decides it's going to embrace something called bail reform which amounts to were revolving door policy. That makes your neighborhood and your entire city into a shooting gal. Anybody who doesn't think these things are madness in other words. What fascinates me is that when i first heard defend the police. It's so stupid that i didn't even respond. I thought everyone knows this is. This is madness. This is suicide who is promoting these ideas and others. I can't think in what universe any of these ideas make sense. You know the these bail policies a who is behind this and they genuinely think that You know decriminalizing theft any of these things that they really think this may help or on. What basis do they believe that. I don't think they do believe it. Helps. and who is that day you were asking. And i will advance my theory and i. I don't think it's a too radical theory. They are a professional administrative political class educated in the universities of this country over the last several decades so the people now running our cities both the top elected officials and the top administrators have all been brought up reading You know michael phooko and jock kahlo. In all of these people they're deconstructionist's they don't believe there's a right and wrong. And they used the power of their position to affect a their conception of social justice. I mean look at. It seems obvious to me we. We need a new american revolution in the cities in the federal government that we have allowed and entrenched bureaucracy To take over they don't represent the people so so they are not they're not even operating along any kind of american vision but we've somehow allowed this in places like chicago. I really do wonder whether it's possible for a city like that to get past it. I gathered by writing this book. You think that there there is hope for this kind of wholesale restructuring of things. I think there is. I think it resides one household at a time. I talked Near the end of my field research to a woman from venezuela who alongs to go back to her home country who is a playwright and a theater company owner and she said when she came to chicago she was struck that it was a city of hope a clean city beautiful city a dramatic contrast Took living in venezuela. And i think eric. Here's one thing that i noticed. The people are part of the reason for hope to city itself though like new york. There's a heavy duality at play here. I was standing downtown watching alive. Blues concerts sponsored by the city with this amazing beautiful skyline in front of me just a weekend or two ago. Three or four thousand people. They're all happy smiling. No violence right there at that site in a friend turned to me. And he said that this is the brilliance of chicago. And i felt to later though i asked myself how many people got shot or died this weekend and it turned out to be only fifty six shot nine killed. Let's actually let's put a pin in it there this too exciting. We call this cliffhanger. Don't go away eight folks. Eric metaxas here..

"Rosenberg from chicago and the book is what next chicago. You're just telling us something really nuts. You're seeing that mayor lori lightfoot Was quoting john lennon's beautiful but insipid song. Imagine in response to some killings. Tell us more about that just so that we understand what in what context was she doing this right while i put it this way that she is channeling john lennon. She did not name him what she did. Say after a mass shooting. In which a number of people were killed was it's a whole essentially. She said it's a whole different ballgame if we don't have all these guns around and the absurdity of that is that it's the proclivity to shoot a gun for spurious reasons. That is the real issue here. I think common commonsense observers understand that so the hard part here is going back to a failure among parents. You know the hard part here to me is the issue of what i like to call in eric. This was growth experience for me. I had to confront. What is the central problem here. And i realized it's centered around something that i decided i would call moral authority. This is probably an area in which you have some experience of thinking and writing and and analyzing i realized it's a pretty basic definition what that what's constituted within that but there are maybe only five percent of chicago's one million households that are not living with moral authority but that's a large enough number to affect a tyranny of the minority which means it's not safe to be out on the streets which means that schools k twelve public schools are in state of disorder. Where police are required to be onsite breaking up fights guarding students against violence from other students. There's a great pressure on the county court system because of a small relatively small handful of miscreants who have an outsized effect on the city's so there is a problem of moral authority in the city chicago and we have a certain number of parents who are not stepping up who are not even in the game and the results of that are being felt across the entice. I think It almost goes without saying but but fatherless-ness is an epidemic in the inner city and it was ten thousand years ago. I think when moynahan senator patrick moynihan issued his report of course famous liberal democrat in nineteen sixty five about fatherless-ness being at the heart of a lot of most of the problems in the in the inner city and even then it was thought to be somehow racially insensitive to bring this up. I would think that it's the most loving thing you could do is say here's the problem. Let's fix the problem. We never address that problem. And i guess you know. Lbj's great society and we. We always act as though there are other ways to deal with this and we've had a long time to see that none of those other ways work but they keep acting as though if if only we would just give more money to this or give more money to that. I cannot imagine what life is like a for somebody without a father trying to scrape by. But nobody seems to have the guts as moynahan did to bring that up as though we can no longer bring up that issue. There's actually a two for here. The city needs to dramatically a reformulates budget in order to deal with crushing public employees pension dot if it which is a mammoth thing one hundred and seventy billion dollars worth of public employees payments are owed in chicago between now and the year twenty fifty five so currently we're paying two and a half billion dollars a year two former city employees to not work that will grow to five billion a year before twenty fifty five and reach five point seven billion a year. That's nearly half of the city budget so in order to reformulate you've got to cut payments to social programs which aren't working anyway and force people to step up and do what they should be doing that no one like lori lightfoot even approaching what she's like no one will do anything about this. This is classic This is old school. Democratic big city corruption big government corruption. It takes cities down. I mean it almost took new york down in the seventies. And i guess the question is will we have a federal government willing to stand against this and say we're no. We're not going to bail you out. We're not going to reward you for your malfeasance over the decades. But what do you think will happen in chicago. Will they face will and it was there. Anybody who has the the character to face this kind of thing and deal with it. There's one alderman in particular that i like needs a little bit of a showboat and a rabble rouser but he speaks truth about the problems at the community level in the family level. His name is ray lopez. He's you alderman of the fifteenth ward. He's called out lightfoot for her. Systemic racism stick has said that the problem is generational gang culture and the borderline breakdown of the family unit. And this from a gay that tino democratic alderman the guy's got stones to step up and say this we need somebody like him. I don't know what you think about. Eric adams you probably know more about him. Since you're in new york or what. I do take away from his likely election soon. As new york's mayor is that A candidate of color who essentially supports police who support school choice is a good thing. It's a remarkable contrast to the policy priorities. Bill de blasio. Who was new. York's own i suppose gory lightfoot but for longer only twice as big name so think we have to start in cities like chicago with a few big takeaways. One is that Civic engagement really matters that rigged rules of governance matter. We have our elections in odd number years in a february in april. We have thirty three percent registered. Voter turnout in our city of chicago elections. It's absolutely rotten. The same electorate shows up seventy percent so vote for the presidential election so why not change. State law areas and hinge the local logan actions to the presidential and you know who shows up to vote in local elections. It's public employee union members. And and if you ineffectual white progressive so this is why we end up with more of the same. But eric if you go into the communities of color where so. Many people have tuned out and don't vote. They believe they believe it makes no difference but that apathy then becomes sort of self fulfilling and cyclical. So there's a big problem there where it is amazing Just to hear you get into some of this stuff. I think when we're talking about politics We could be talking about philadelphia politics politics. Detroit politics it reminds me of tammany hall. There's a level of corruption that it can become very difficult to get past it because it's so deep do you really think it's possible or for chicago To i mean. I think giuliani virtually singlehandedly. Pulled new york out of the abyss. And we've been writing. You know living off that. Ever since the blasios doing his best to take back to one thousand nine hundred seventy but the fact is that at some point you need a really dedicated warrior reformer to get in. And i just wonder is there i mean. Do you think the person the altered men that you mentioned is capable of that. I mean this is. This is a rather big job. This is not just a change of attitude it would take more than a strong may oral candidate and winter it would take a rebranding really of reform effort which has been an important part of chicago's political history and that of other big cities. When i was nineteen years old i worked on a pulitzer finalist. Investigative series called mirage tavern. We set up. We being the better government association and the chicago sun-times set up a fake tavern to document the shakedowns by inspectors. You know you leave that envelope with the twenties and the fifties inside of folded newspaper on the bench of a booth and this is how you correct your faulty wiring the maggots in the basement. And all of that Ben bradlee didn't like the Supposed- entrapment sting operation. This sting operation. Sit try to save their city. What's wrong with them. Sorry ben bradlee. You can't get it right all the time folks. We're talking to matt rosenberg. The book is what next chicago and we will continue the conversation In just a moment don't go away a bad dog. Do not cry..

Is matt rosenberg. The book is what next chicago notes of a pissed off native son. Wow matt rosenberg. Welcome to the program. Thank you eric. It's a pleasure to be here. I know of you because of your dad the legendary milt rosenberg my goodness. How long did he do radio. I mean how many years was he in that world. Thirty eight years he was on. Wgn am but it was just a second job. His first job He was a professor of social psychology at the university of chicago. And i grew up in hyde park in the professor of social social psychology with common sense and great curiosity which i think he passed on at least partially to me. So you've been a journalist. You've done a lot of things this book. I mean everybody in the country Including some chicagoans are wondering what in the world is happening in chicago. so what. What is the book about what next chicago. What ultimately Are you saying here. I am addressing urban progressive misrule In our nation's biggest cities. I'm looking at the unified theory of systemic racism and positing that that is not the problem that the problem is that urban political elites largely of color are running our nation's biggest cities into the ground. What i'm also trying to do. When this book. I went deep into the south side. I moved back to chicago where i lived for thirty years. from the time of being a a young child six years old to you know My mid thirties. When i finally left and moved to seattle with my lovely wife where we raised two children. I had to come back in twenty twenty looking at the city in chaos and turmoil. I went deep into the south side. Talk to black people in their homes and workplaces about what's gone wrong how to set things right so that was a big part of it but then the policy piece. Eric was very big. I felt don't shy away from this. How is it that the public schools are failing. How is it that the criminal court system has run off the rails. How was it that. of fiscal governance has gone so wrong. Why is it that corruption is endemic and rules of governance are rigged so it was ambitious. But i feel like. I had a chance to step up to it. I mean i have to ask the face of chicago. Alas and the lack has been mayor lory lightfoot seems to project a kind of confusion. I don't know if that's just her arresting face but she just looks confused and lost. Unfortunately that doesn't seem Inappropriate her her leadership. And i'm using that word you know in quotes has been to most of us. At least mystifying. You're really trying to wonder what in the world anybody with. A modicum of common sense would have done many things differently. It's almost as if she's not doing it. I guess you reminds me of biden in some ways. I mean i can't really make sense of of how things can be falling apart in that way. How somebody like that cannot even seem to be addressing it on any level. I i hope i miss misreading some of that. But what is your sense of what is happening. She's badly overwhelmed. She's floundering she's intelligent capable and had a fairly impressive career leading up to this including working as a federal prosecutor in chicago and actually putting corrupt chicago alderman in jail in a few instances University of chicago law grad electa. I know it's utterly banal. She's brilliant and floundering. I think there was this crucial inflection point. It tells us something about our times in twenty twenty after george floyd with kobe. There was a crucial inflection. Point where you find out whether people who were capable intelligent and well tested previously whether they can step up under unusual circumstances where you know the heat under the pot with the boiling frog senate is all of the sudden turned up and she has literally gone to pieces in front of the city and in front of the nation and has fallen back among other things on this song. This refrain that systemic. Racism is to blame for every problem on the violent crime. The higher murder rates among blacks. It's as if black on black crime. We're not a legitimate issue as if Flax being racist when they're killing blacks black people are befuddled by this. When i went into this outside i had one woman a woman of faith religious faith and entrepreneur woman named latasha fields one of several success stories that i share in the book. Say to me literally. You know you need to explain something to us black people. We hear this phrase black lives matter but do they only matter when a white policeman takes a black life and you know some of this goes back to the stoic philosophers who who counseled among other things that you choose how you react to something if your honor is affronted by somebody you can either get in. They said this in their own way but it translates to you can either get bent out of shape or you can accept this with equanimity. Because it's not something you can do a great deal about and you can prove your honor through your daily actions and your daily life in chicago. We have people pulling out guns and firing them because of something. Somebody says at a party you know because of minor disagreements or in this takes you deep into the strange subculture of gang life there is now a style of rap video called chicago drill most unfortunately named it as certain distinguishing musical features but the main aspect of it is. It's a platform for insulting rival gangs and so these are broadcast on social media. Social media is very much a part of the current environment connected to random and wanton violence guys will come and the phrases spray the block guys will come and spray the block meaning these fourteen or fifteen year olds who can barely hoist. These semiautomatic weapons will cruise the block. Where a rival who was insulted them in a music video lives. They won't bother to target the guy who who disc them. They will simply spray the block with bullets and so grandmothers sitting in their living rooms literally may die because of this young girls. Young boys innocent adults sitting on the stoop shooting the breeze with their neighbors. So it's it's you know we've always had this but since a may of twenty twenty things have have literally gone off the air now that this is obviously Removed from from the preposterous Thesis of You know systemic racism. Because this is we're talking about gangs and violence but i it at least brings up well brings up many things. It brings up the issue of gun. Control i mean it seems to me. None of the guns being used in all of this violence Our legal guns in other words. The idea that you could have these laws that are not virtually meaningless. They are meaningless Anybody can get a gun can use. It can can can use a gun. The guns are being used. It's so strange to me that something that is is in the dressed in other words this is people killing people they can get guns. The laws make no difference. What is lori. Lightfoot say for example about this kind of violence. Let's start there. I mean what's her stance. There was a mass shooting one of several In chicago this year in june in fact right up right up the block from the home of a gentleman who i spent today with down in englewood and after that mass shooting lory lightfoot decided essentially to channel john lennon if you remember the song imagine imagine a world without gun straight. Yeah we we need to go to a break from my mental health. We'll be right back. Hey folks you wish you remembered names better thought more clearly improve your memory with viva lower memory support. Vive.

One of this series is we dig into the missing mutants of morals x-men today answer five more the most notable missing mutants in this era of X. Madonna of VEX in expanded theory about Maura X is true plans for mutant kind of course theories and predictions for what's to come in the. Dawn of acts spoilers will follow for this conversation throughout the Donovan as I talk about a bunch of things that have happened since House of X. empowers attend kicked off the era way back in summer two, thousand nineteen. Thanks everybody for listening I'm debut founder and editor in chief. Of Comic Book Herald Dot Com, you're listening to crack and curricula if you like the Comic Book Herald Youtube Channel or cracking for Koa pleaseconsider liking subscribing and sharing it helps me out a great deal without further ado let's Talk Major Missing Mutants. Seven on our list and a big one I wouldn't say this is like an order of importance because Cassandra Nova is a pretty big deal. She's not the seven most important precedes the seventh I'm going to be talking about who is Cassandra Nova well short. She's Professor Charles Executors Long? Lost Evil. Twin that he tried to kill in the womb. Arguably, it was self defense Nova is a remarkably powerful telepathic. Any Mama Dre Aka Charlie's perfect spiritual opposite. It is debatable. I suppose that Cassandra is in fact mutant because while she is basically a twin. In his twin, she's actually created from Professor Xavier's psychic energy. So as to her official mutant status up in the air last, we saw Cassandra Nova was less notable. Story is X. men read one of the best pre Hickman x-men arch by Tom. Taylor with frequent art by Mama's Rar Nova faces off against Jean Grey and the reformed x-men red squad, and it is again basically a battle of hate versus empathy and by the end of that Jean. Grey actually makes Nova feel empathy for the first time and she is overwhelmed now shortly thereafter, Cassandra Nova was reportedly jailed in the pages of Matt Rosenberg written uncanny x men which. We learn in a conversation that occurs with the current up. Black King Emma Frost, and she basically just over here's a general saying you know basically we helped we found Cassandra Nova last night. Thanks to your information which imply she is imprisoned somewhere in the United States but I don't know that we have much more information beyond that as to her current status. Now, what comes next for Cassandra Nova? Well, there's kind of two possibilities that the probably lean into each other. The first is in here comes tomorrow the Grant Morrison Story Arc that he finished his new x men Ronin in two, thousand, one, the two, thousand, and four. Influence again cannot be overstated in terms of Jonathan Hickman as a creator, and especially in terms of his the X. men runs that he has celebrated leading into his time title. There's also extremely strong implication in Morrison's here comes tomorrow that the grownup future Cassandra Nova who shows up in this art, and she's like the leader of the x men at this point in time in this kind of apocalyptic future than Morrison anything is Marc Silvestri on depict. And the girl version of Nova, she was once the mutant known as Ernst, a younger mutant he debuts in the Morrison Arab men She looks very old as she has what appears to be a per Geria- disease where you know you have a person can look old and she's also great friends with no girl who I in no girl are..

"If I could do them and then Lo and behold, it turns out that if you don't do them, you don't learn how to do them. So then you will never be ready, and that really blew my mind so that I started saying yes to things and and I learned how to do them, and that was cool. so like for me. Iron Heart is like a very emotional experience for like three million reasons. You know and you know there's a little bit of a homecoming for me because I'm writing this with Beata and then you know Matt Rosenberg, is also you know I think he's doing force works this event. So you know like getting to Message Forbidden Planet, people and being like Joe. I guess we're GONNA. Vent together like that's. That's fucking dope and. And having been fortunate, where I have a bunch of friends who are creators who are doing stuff for marble, and like knowing that they have advocated for me so I'm like cool. This isn't just you know like my first pass at marble. This is I've been fortunate to have people say my name and be like Oh we should bring them on board. And now now I just got to do it, so no pressure. Have I given myself? And then weirdly enough. It was just super her. Some of the most fun stuff in terms of like ease of scripting I've done so. It is part of this twenty twenty event in which are no is in charge and Tony Is. Dead and all of this stuff is happening and resource a little different in that we decided never to have her go to New York, but she is dealing with a stark unlimited and some shenanigans that are connected to the major event. We decided we only have two issues to tell a story, and we also are in a little bizarre situation, because Prenton logically also affected by the outlawed event right so. So she kind of has this double situation where this is part of the two thousand twenty event, but she's doing her thing, and so we decided that the best way to approach this considering limited space is we wanted to shock and surprise tell a story about her small community of a brown folk, and so it becomes a story that is very literally about her natalie, her best friend and AI and Xavier. Where Natalie is affected by an incident that occurs when they are out, but an of that she and really are kind of grappling with res decisions in relationship to outlaw, and what that means in terms of the existence of iron heart, and so like we decided cool like this is what we wanna play with we love. Natalie and I loved the chance to kind of delve into more of her right because we know, she technically exists off. OFF OF RE, re trying to make the perfect ai for herself, but there's a lot of space there. Right in terms of how that came to be, and while we don't do like origin stuff necessarily. We do a little bit about who natalie and really our relation to each other. That I think was really exciting to get to play with. They let us do a lot both in terms of just being wild and motion I think. It was really nice. It really gets a play with their relationship in a way that we constantly have been like we're just going to do this and then if they tell us. No, we'll back or we'll you know regroup, but they really didn't. They let us have fun. Also issue to has me and Vitas best joke of all time. Okay, well later. Really just let you guys know like we wrote the joke, and like it wasn't even in the original script we did it and lettering be made a crack and I was like we need to put that in the script. It's brilliant. And then we figured out how to make the joke work, and then we were like. There's no way that editorial lets us do this like it just and then they were like Oh. We love this. The only note we got back for him. It was like a literal copy editing like grammatically. Does this work or should we do this? And it was just like? Oh, all right cool or letting us do it, and it is sincerely and considering quarter killer exists probably my favorite joke that Vida and I have put a comic. I can't wait so I hope you guys enjoy it also holy crap. The Art and colours on this book are like wild. It was so funny we were like. Do we have an idea of artists with style? And then our editor? Alana was like Oh. It's a Muslim. We were like Oh okay cool. He's just brilliant. That's fine. And then he starts bringing pages back, and he literally was like. Hey, so I decided to do some little experimental stuff with this. You know a little bit of inspiration from like spider versus stuff because I watched it and we look at the pages, and we're like this is for us like it's like a president or something like it's not like a professionally published book that is being put out, but like it's so awesome to look at where like this is. Is For us. You did the thing for us, and then like we got the colors and we were like Oh this is beautiful, so yeah, that's going to be so amazing. I'm excited I loved the Iron Heart series that just happened in so it's just nice, Nice that they're just keeping such a great quality. I guess by the book. You know there's so many great writers on it. Is there anything that's coming up? The listener should know about. Oh, boy! Everything in my life because it's quarantine, time is like murmur maybe. A so before this comes out. We will get issue. Five of James Bond I in fact got my comps two days ago. That was super exciting that for sure trying to think if I have anything else in between there aside from my birthday. Happy Birthday Happy Birthday. I will presumably be spending it doing what I do every day which is yelling about Yakuza, played condoms building gundem's playing gums So yeah, those are like the set things I think Oh July that means I think digitally. The first issue of iron heart will have come out. Oh, yeah, cool, so we'll be able to chat about that. It's always kind of up at the air whether or not I'll have like announcements or you know it's comics. I could. Sitting on something like Oh. I think that nothing's going to happen till the end of the year and then I get an email tomorrow and they're like. Oh, by the way. Do you want to pick up steam on this? And like start doing things and I'm like yes. So hopefully by then I will have more stuff, but oh, my heart cast with Danny Roth envy to. In which we re watch all of Voyager episode by episode.

"Every government in the world heard that we don't know how many of them did what Donald Trump wants them to do but we do know who Vladimir Putin supports for president of the United States. Did you want president trump to win the election. And did you direct any of your officials to help him do that. Saloon leader because he talked about bringing the US Russia relationship back to normal a spokesperson for the Biden campaign. said tonight now we know that Putin also sees Joe Biden as a threat any American president who had not repeatedly encouraged foreign interventions of this kind would immediately condemn this attack on the sovereignty of our elections and leading off our discussion tonight. Is Nicole pro RAF cybersecurity reporter for the New York Times. It was one of the reporters who broke this story tonight. Also joining US Democratic Congressman. Peter Welch Vermont. He's a member of the house. Intelligence Committee and Frankford Woosie is with us. He's a former the FBI assistant director for counter intelligence he's an MSNBC national security analysts and the coal you're breaking news report tonight has is really Dominated our coverage since it emerged and I and I wonder. How long have you been working on this story? And how did you get out this information. So we had a pretty big story about the state of the election threats to the election last week and we spent months putting that story together at the time that we printed it last week there really wasn't any concrete evidence that there was a clear breach or attack along the lines of what we saw in two thousand sixteen as we were talking about to go to print. I called up one of my sources at area one which is is a Silicon Valley Company and I just wanted to do some fact checking on the article and he said I think we're looking at something pretty big. And he basically said Ed that one of their researchers had seen this very concerted very aggressive campaign in the last couple of weeks of the low of twenty nineteen to get the credentials of some Ukrainian companies but he hadn't put two and two together and just as I was speaking of the CEO of area one. He said we looked at their targets. And they all have one thing in common. They're all subsidiaries of Bruce Mann so over the weekend we you kept in touch and as they did more forensic work they determine that actually they had successfully fished. It's five or so burris mess subsidiaries stories and it looks like employees at breeze had turned over their emails and passwords. neff separately at my colleague Matt Rosenberg and I also determined that From speaking to intelligence officials that there was a concerted effort by Russian. Spies in the analog world to try and infiltrate brees Matt to to try and get similar information that that trump actually had been looking for Do your sources indicate that this is the kind of attack and you described as really as a bombardment of by The Russian of attackers In the into this cyber environment and Ukraine but is this the kind wanting to attack but the American government would know about. We would hope so but it it we when I talked to people at DHS HFS. They had no knowledge of the attack which which was pretty disconcerting. Let's look at what Adam Schiff said dirig- motto tonight about your reporting. Let's listen to this. We're going to start by finding out what are until agencies know about this. I have to say Rachel bit distress to see this for the first time in a newspaper report if the Intel Committee community is aware of this That should have been brought to our attention by now. But I don't find it surprising I do you find it deeply disturbing and I would hope that maybe both parties can get out ahead of this. Even if the president won't and condemn any Russian effort to influence the next election Carson. Peter Welsh your remember the intelligence committee as you listen to Nicole and I know you've read her reporting tonight but as you listen to her. Describe this Does this sound like the kind of information that in the normal course of events. Your Committee would've at least been briefed on it absolutely it absolutely. Would I mean I mean it goes to the core of democratic societies obligation to make your vote count and if you remember director Muller when he was testifying about this said he feared that outside interference particularly Russian would be the new normal and we focus on Russia's preference funds for trump over any democratic candidate. But there's something that's actually more important with. Russia is about is sowing discord. So Americans can't have their own conversation and debate about who they want to be there. President they put out this false information and get us in these false debates so there should be some common ground here whether it's the mayor of a city or the president of the United States who has an obligation to do everything possible to make certain certain that is Americans or the people in that city who make the decision free of interference from foreign involvement and Franco. Suzy the time Nicole reports that the Russian cyber attacks are accompanied by More traditional spying techniques the the southern. It's a complimentary effort. I want to get your assessment having read this report of the totality of it and what the Russians are up to make no mistake. This is a full on attack on our twenty twenty elections. This should surprise. No one we were told this was going the happen. And it's playing out and let me expand on something. The Congressman said about the Russia intention of sowing discord and sending a message. The message here is that they I can do this at will. And they don't expect any pushback or sanctions because of it. Why am I saying that? They use the same technique the same signature as as they did in two thousand sixteen if they wanted to pretend to be the Iranians or the North Koreans or as the president says a four hundred pound guy sitting in his bed. They could have the easy done that but instead they use the same Russian signature easily attributed to the GRU and that's telling us we're in charge you're we're not. We don't expect any repercussions from doing this. So I let me. Just underline this point. Are you saying that the Russians of MHM realizing that at some point this would probably be discovered actually wanted to be clear that it is the Russians. Who are doing it? I'm saying that they have the full capability to mask attribution back at them right and they chose not to mask who they were so that's a burglar blur who's doing it in broad daylight wearing no disguise. And that's what they chose to do. What does that tell me? They don't care they don't care because they they're not afraid raid of anything happening to them because of and the call is also it do any any of the analyst you spoke to today have a reading on why the Russians didn't were Carter To kind of cover their fingerprints here. I think they did just enough to get in. So this is a group group. The private security community calls them. Fancy bear the intelligence community knows that they're part of Russia's main intelligence directorate and they're known four doing these fishing tax and they do just enough to get inside and in this case they did just enough and it worked and perhaps because they were targeting a group in Ukraine. They felt like they didn't necessarily need to mask their moves as well as they would if they were targeting a similar company or government agency in the United States but in this case the use the same servers to get in they use the same Internet service provider I systems they use the same militias technical infrastructure and and just like frank was saying they didn't bother to mask their moves anymore Dr because they knew that there were going to be repercussions and Carson Welch. They paid the price for this in twenty sixteen So when you see how kind of Lucie they are and the way they're going about it this year it it almost Is a is in their case kind of acknowledgement that. They've paid no price for this. Well well it is and you know the heart of our democracy is the vote and the integrity of the vote and that we decide who our president is. We have red lines and national security if a country does X. we might retaliate with force. We should have red lines when it comes to outside forces interfering referring in the right of every American to have their say count. I think we should have to be much more aggressive in our response. Because from my perspective Russia Russia has crossed a red line because they're explicitly deliberately insistently interfering in our elections and trying to sow discord in this country Frank I think if the American government wanted to help Ukraine fend off an attack like this. What could the American government do? Well we we should should be sending our experts from F. B. I. D. H. S. intelligence community over there to help track down the attribution. Find out exactly what's been been taken. Let's it's not forget. The Russians also have the capability of planting data inside a server or network. So if they didn't find what they wanted they. They have the capability of planting it. We need table to get to the bottom of this. What's equity in it even though there might not be a US law involved because we have a foreign victim and a foreign actor? The equity is our election. This is about who's going to determine the next president of the United States whether it's the US voters or whether it's the Russian Gru that should bother everybody and Nicole. I saw you nodding at the notion of the Russians could also plant information there as as frank put. Make it look like It was real Ukrainian information so they can insert disinformation awesome. And then discover it and pretend this is real evidence. That's right I. I was nodding because that is something that intelligence officials told me in two thousand sixteen ecksteen. They were really worried about that. Perhaps in addition to leaking all the data that they leaked from Podesta's emails Sarah that they might insert some fake materials sales and then we were going to basically leave it to the American people to decide which of these documents and emails were real which were fake and there was no evidence that they did did that last time around. But that's something that Russian actors have done in the past and if they don't find what they're looking for in embarrassment systems they can very well do that at this time around and it all it would have to be as one email one document and and it would have it would play out and headlines all over the world so it's it's a huge thing and and it's something I personally am very worried about Nicole. Thank you very much for joining us at the end of this very busy day for you with your breaking news report in The New York Times is Carson Peter Welch thank you for journeys Frankford woozy. Thank you for your guidance on this subject. Really appreciate it and when we come back Senator Michael Bennet will soon be a juror in.

It's five or so burris mess subsidiaries stories and it looks like employees at breeze had turned over their emails and passwords. neff separately at my colleague Matt Rosenberg and I also determined that From speaking to intelligence officials that there was a concerted effort by Russian. Spies in the analog world to try and infiltrate brees Matt to to try and get similar information that that trump actually had been looking for Do your sources indicate that this is the kind of attack and you described as really as a bombardment of by The Russian of attackers In the into this cyber environment and Ukraine but is this the kind wanting to attack but the American government would know about. We would hope so but it it we when I talked to people at DHS HFS. They had no knowledge of the attack which which was pretty disconcerting. Let's look at what Adam Schiff said dirig- motto tonight about your reporting. Let's listen to this. We're going to start by finding out what are until agencies know about this. I have to say Rachel bit distress to see this for the first time in a newspaper report if the Intel Committee community is aware of this That should have been brought to our attention by now. But I don't find it surprising I do you find it deeply disturbing and I would hope that maybe both parties can get out ahead of this. Even if the president won't and condemn any Russian effort to influence the next election Carson. Peter Welsh your remember the intelligence committee as you listen to Nicole and I know you've read her reporting tonight but as you listen to her. Describe this Does this sound like the kind of information that in the normal course of events. Your Committee would've at least been briefed on it absolutely it absolutely. Would I mean I mean it goes to the core of democratic societies obligation to make your vote count and if you remember director Muller when he was testifying about this said he feared that outside interference particularly Russian would be the new normal and we focus on Russia's preference funds for trump over any democratic candidate. But there's something that's actually more important with. Russia is about is sowing discord. So Americans can't have their own conversation and debate about who they want to be there. President they put out this false information and get us in these false debates so there should be some common ground here whether it's the mayor of a city or the president of the United States who has an obligation to do everything possible to make certain certain that is Americans or the people in that city who make the decision free of interference from foreign involvement and Franco. Suzy the time Nicole reports that the Russian cyber attacks are accompanied by More traditional spying techniques the the southern. It's a complimentary effort. I want to get your assessment having read this report of the totality of it and what the Russians are up to make no mistake. This is a full on attack on our twenty twenty elections. This should surprise. No one we were told this was going the happen. And it's playing out and let me expand on something. The Congressman said about the Russia intention of sowing discord and sending a message. The message here is that they I can do this at will. And they don't expect any pushback or sanctions because of it. Why am I saying that? They use the same technique the same signature as as they did in two thousand sixteen if they wanted to pretend to be the Iranians or the North Koreans or as the president says a four hundred pound guy sitting in his bed. They could have the easy done that but instead they use the same Russian signature easily attributed to the GRU and that's telling us we're in charge you're we're not. We don't expect any repercussions from doing this. So I let me. Just underline this point. Are you saying that the Russians of MHM realizing that at some point this would probably be discovered actually wanted to be clear that it is the Russians. Who are doing it? I'm saying that they have the full capability to mask attribution back at them right and they chose not to mask who they were so that's a burglar blur who's doing it in broad daylight wearing no disguise. And that's what they chose to do. What does that tell me? They don't care they don't care because they they're not afraid raid of anything happening to them because of and the call is also it do any any of the analyst you spoke to today have a reading on why the Russians didn't were Carter To kind of cover their fingerprints here. I think they did just enough to get in. So this is a group group. The private security community calls them. Fancy bear the intelligence community knows that they're part of Russia's main intelligence directorate and they're known four doing these fishing tax and they do just enough to get inside and in this case they did just enough and it worked and perhaps because they were targeting a group in Ukraine. They felt like they didn't necessarily need to mask their moves as well as they would if they were targeting a similar company or government agency in the United States but in this case the use the same servers to get in they use the same Internet service provider I systems they use the same militias technical infrastructure and and just like frank was saying they didn't bother to mask their moves anymore Dr because they knew that there were going to be repercussions and Carson Welch. They paid the price for this in twenty sixteen So when you see how kind of Lucie they are and the way they're going about it this year it it almost Is a is in their case kind of acknowledgement that. They've paid no price for this. Well well it is and you know the heart of our democracy is the vote and the integrity of the vote and that we decide who our president is. We have red lines and national security if a country does X. we might retaliate with force. We should have red lines when it comes to outside forces interfering referring in the right of every American to have their say count. I think we should have to be much more aggressive in our response. Because from my perspective Russia Russia has crossed a red line because they're explicitly deliberately insistently interfering in our elections and trying to sow discord in this country Frank I think if the American government wanted to help Ukraine fend off an attack like this. What could the American government do? Well we we should should be sending our experts from F. B. I. D. H. S. intelligence community over there to help track down the attribution. Find out exactly what's been been taken. Let's it's not forget. The Russians also have the capability of planting data inside a server or network. So if they didn't find what they wanted they. They have the capability of planting it. We need table to get to the bottom of this. What's equity in it even though there might not be a US law involved because we have a foreign victim and a foreign actor? The equity is our election. This is about who's going to determine the next president of the United States whether it's the US voters or whether it's the Russian Gru that should bother everybody and Nicole. I saw you nodding at the notion of the Russians could also plant information there as as frank put. Make it look like It was real Ukrainian information so they can insert disinformation awesome. And then discover it and pretend this is real evidence. That's right I. I was nodding because that is something that intelligence officials told me in two thousand sixteen ecksteen. They were really worried about that. Perhaps in addition to leaking all the data that they leaked from Podesta's emails Sarah that they might insert some fake materials sales and then we were going to basically leave it to the American people to decide which of these documents and emails were real which were fake and there was no evidence that they did did that last time around. But that's something that Russian actors have done in the past and if they don't find what they're looking for in embarrassment systems they can very well do that at this time around and it all it would have to be as one email one document and and it would have it would play out and headlines all over the world so it's it's a huge thing and and it's something I personally am very worried about Nicole.

"matt rosenberg" Discussed on I Read Comic Book

"This is the I read comic books. Podcast I'm your host Mike Rapin and with me. This week are to just spectacular human beings. Nick White Hey. Hey Hey thank you both for joining this week. I am very excited to be back. It's twenty twenty baby. I I feel like there should be air horns and confetti in my my house that I'm going to be cleaning up for the next three to six months. It's a big year. We ended the year with my friend. Dahmer I guess. We started the year technically with my friend Dahmer but this week we're back back to a regular show. I'm so excited to just be talking about comic books. I've started a big deep dive into something but we'll get into that in a second but the question I'm going to ask is the same one that I asked all through two thousand nineteen and before it's how have you been how of comic books been. Let's start with you Tia. I feel like I'm already over. Twenty twenty to be honest with you. Could it be because half of the world is on fire. I've just wanted something else already. Tired Okay and so I was like thinking about how in two thousand nineteen I really kind of stopped reading marvel comics and I used to be such a marvel fan girl. You know like the all new. All Marvel now adjectives. You know I was there for that and then I feel like they kind of ended without a win. A bunch of those creators left marvel all for greener pastures in their creator owned lives. I kind of just got bored of Marvel and so I was like what are they up to lately. A lot of people on twitter later were saying how much they loved. Hawkeye freefall number. One by Matt Rosenberg. Auto Schmitz I was like I love Hawkeye. You know like fractured in a Hawkeye. That was like a uh a really important book for me just in terms of like bringing me into the comic book world you know. Throw rule and a lot of people are saying that they got from this books. I checked it out and I'm just like why am I reading marvel books again. I'm like why I don't know I I WANNA love. I WANNA believe but I was just kind of like yeah. Yeah that's Akai book are a kind of an remarkable but then on the other hand I'm lake. It's sort of amazing that the fraction and a hot hawkeye like basically basically invented Hawkeye. You know and now that concept that seemed so original and seems to really like you know pushed the idea of superheroes and and like storytelling obstr- Superhero storytelling. That like it just seems kind of you've wrote now in a way I feel like Hawkeye is still such a blank slate. And you know like Matt Rosenberg is obviously very talented writer. and I wonder if it's like marvel editorial that's just like yeah give us more fraction Hawkeye or like what was the deal like. I want to see another original Hawkeye. Take and I feel like Rosenberg is the dude you a and whereas my original Mukai Take I. It's interesting to hear that because I they would've thought that I mean I haven't read a lot of major marvel books outside of X.. Men So like my my understanding what how things have changed is is very unknown. But but it's interesting to hear that there wasn't hasn't been any kind of major growth for that character. You'd think that years later that someone would have been like. Yeah fractions fraction. Talk I but then this other thing on top of that growing the character adding more to this whole. He's he's he's deaf and this is a part of his character now. It's not just something we hint at women. It's it's relevant on surprise. No it's all like what was happening in. This book is out There's like someone is using the ronin costume costume to do bad things and so like Bucky and Sam Path delake pay Hawkeye of visit to be like. Is this you. And he's like no yeah and then like he's also dealing with Like a bad guy. I forget what he calls himself because it was like. I was actually surprised at how annoyed I was by talkie some of the scenes were in this book like there was a lot of words in this book. And I. I feel like if you're GONNA do fraction a hawk I like you know David made as much of a mark on that as fractions wins like tone dead and I felt like the the like I wanted more from the art style and I wanted less words words. It was fine. It was a perfectly fine. It was a perfectly fine marvel superhero book. There were one liners. It was quickey. It was charming charming. The Art told it story. But I feel like you know your your your own worst enemy without character marvel. 'cause you set the bar high and now yeah you have to do better. Yeah Yeah that's that's interesting to hear because again I think to your point. I've seen it all over twitter. It's Kelly Thompson constantly re tweeting tweets about it. I mean look at that. We all love these creators and know that they're so capable of doing cool shit and I just like I don't know no of Marvel is letting people play with their toys in to the fullest. Their abilities interesting. I you're you're not the first person to say that about the marvel and particularly also star wars properties which is interesting. Just say we don't have to get into that. I think that Brian and Carrie just did an entire series about that. So we'll interesting I. Maybe maybe I'll try this just to just to get a fuller picture of what you're describing because it it does sound interesting but I i. It feels like it might be a book that might be better in trade. Maybe we'll see we'll see what nick what about you what he'd been reading. How have you been all Legesse? Let's it's just funny when you guys were talking about The Marvel editorial not let them play with their toys. All I could think of was that SNL Like Star Wars skit. We're the kids are like. I want to play with the toys and then like the older star. Wars fans are like. Let's keep it in the box. That's like I figured. That's like a pretty good analogy for perhaps it's going going on but yeah yeah things are things are okay. I mean all things considered The fact that all the dingoes in the wallabies in the Koalas or being set on fire and and were massively approaching global armed conflict perhaps and so maybe starting off the year with my friend. Dahmer where you have a slow set warning signs that escalate into something uncontrollable and evil. Maybe that was the perfect book to begin with. I don't know Beyond that things things have been okay. I recently read My heroes have always been junkies. That's written by Ed Brubaker. Art By Sean Phillips and colors by Sean Son Jacob Phillips So this is a novella that ties into the larger criminal universe It came out in October of twenty. Eighteen I read on Hoopla because seventy nine page original graphic novels that cost seventeen dollars. exist on that a plane of wealth alongside like Bugatti and lamb bows and Caviar that's wrapped in twenty four karat gold and then wrapped in more caviar. So Oh like poop. Low is the way to go for this book. I I waited it out Haynick didn't you pay that same amount for alien salvation which was about the same size. Yes S. but that was Mike Magnolia in aliens. We're not going to have that conversation I already you got friends. Sorry so it. It is worth noting that I haven't read all of criminal in what I did was roughly about three years ago. I don't remember all of it that well I sort of understand where the connection interest rate woes to the larger universe. But it certainly didn't keep me from kind of appreciating the whole book It's largely about this woman named Ellie She's been placed in Rehab by her uncle on quote We find out that her addict mother died ten years before In that Elliott has sort of obsessed in report over this mix tape that her mother sent to her father when her father was in jail and all of the music on the mix tape has a a certain commonality commonality which is the fact that all of the musicians on Were all drug addicts I don't remember member if they all died or not but it was people like Gram Parsons and Billie holiday. And it's sort of. It's interesting because the book tries to walk the line between I'm Elliott pointing out okay. A lot of these artists produced their best work while on drugs But kind of weighing this alongside the ugly accompanying factors Ah Go with addiction as well. As sort of the draconian rules that the government imposes on those who partaken in you know in in substances and and and the book also obviously discusses the idea that there's a different penalty for broke drug offenders versus rich drug offenders. which is whether you go to jail or whether you you get to sit in a in a nice house with other rich people so it's If follows this idea that there's kind of like a meet cute when she's there she needs this male Person WHO's the same age And for while sort of looks like a Fox searchlight quirky like quote unquote how to Caucasian Trust Fund. Kids find each other in Rehab kind of movie in the thing is I think we all know about like four four or five of those at this point but then don't forget. This is the criminal universe which means things are going to take a twist for the worse. the biggest thing I would want on a point out is that we do have Phillips and Brubaker working with Phillips son instead of Elizabeth Breitweiser who would normally normally be there collaborator on criminal as well as some of their other things yeah It took me while to get used to that because I think breitweiser really elite gave things more solid darker realistic lived in tones. Gave things much more of a realistic portrayal in I think with Phillips you have more subdued Pastel colors kind of blotchy coloring Like a brush strokes I really like it. I'm totally okay with it. It reminds me of thirteen for some reason But certainly I think some people are going to be thrown off by it. What's interesting about that book is as I think that? They were intentionally going for stylized color Palette. They weren't necessarily trying to mimic some of the other coloring styles that were done in previous criminal books. I think they really wanted to go with this. More stylized color. Look because I've seen other work that a Jacob Phillips's done he doesn't usually do do things this wild and crazy so it was interesting to see him do this. If you've been reading you know criminal for a long time. And I've been reading various brubaker books for Awhile Brubaker and Phillips Books and for a short short while I want to say it was due during whatever book came before or killer be killed. Jacob Phillips was doing he was doing like little one page splash pages at the back of killer be killed issues with with the essays and his his normal watercolor style is not as vivid or wild world as it is in. My heroes have always been junkie. So it's interesting to hear you say that because I feel he has the same kind of tone down style that his father does but in this one he really changed it up to try to create that stylized look I would suggest digging into his. His twitter is a gold mine for that kind of stuff. Okay.

"It has the wizard on it right before thing. I was very disappointed. There is no five and four quality in there. You have the you basically have all the moment you have Eric's you. The wizard nihilists is very very uncover. If it's a very that when I so this is the first one it's basic premise is you have the super scrawl Yada Yada Yada and he's been cold all of his exploits by this a guy they call them Scott Cre- but his actual name is Mar Coil is a little guy here guys know him okay so which is which it's my thing that character are you Loki in disguise. That's my thing extra vengeance J. or someone else like that. It could be mercury in this guy. He's a trickster. You got to never gets a new quite but here's my plug I mean we talked a little bit about acts of vengeance on the quantum zone but coming up I think in September little and I are going to do the spiderman issues for acts of vengeance. Lovely awesome is just reread it is but you're opening the opening up with an obvious trickster character who's talking to his name but the super scrawl correct I think it is but he's tells else him this magic macguffin device which will if built on the Morphou genyk framework of a shape shifter will <music> can unleash Morphou genetic framework onto an entire planet turn the entire planet and it's denizens into whatever you want to be and he's basically saying I'm GonNa go find him. As Marvel who is the most powerful check shifter after in the universe because <hes> and <hes> use her mortgage scaffolding to actually transform earth into <hes> scroll us <hes> our our old world that was eaten by blackness us and he his his Spanish too impersonal character captain hero medical original tribes were in starts. The meeting up people but being very violent about it and kept marvel. She's like all about this through and she'll put you if she has to but you always prefer to talk it through <hes>. There's this little eighty. Throwback character called <hes> after <unk> boom. Her name is Chaban <hes> she has like Little Marco powers that destroy things and you know basically they know fight fi mccloughan gets used but then gets destroyed by ship boom because hey she lives in the earth to a nice little face with that and then you know basically captain marvel or MS Marvel <unk> out of talks you know <hes> out of you know destroying earth and saying things change you know yes you earth was destroyed. Everything gets destroyed. The best you can do is sort of build the world and he's like yeah you know we're shapeshifts. We shouldn't be so hung up on what planet were on the new world and then they throw Scott Cre- into space and that's the ad and it seems like Oh oh that's a standalone no religion anything until we get to the fire show where once again there's a kind of trickster character making deals with Aliens Space Yeah Eh but he gets well he gets kyle is dry growing that you talking about to go that <hes> organize a whole spice expedition what the punisher yes sorry the punisher yeah the wife Yeah Drake the are together. It's actually interesting Chali that went through the Miss Mabul annual because when you were describing it I was trying to find any ties with the able to punish annual and <hes> the closest thing is this dry character but he gets he gets exposed those <hes> at the end saga similar to that Skull Creek Act so auditor how things are gonNA tie in with a continuing anyone thread. It seemed a little disjointed this whole active able something video future off the the able but yeah but all I love the punisher J._J.. How would how good was that? Actually I was too so I was a bit reserved but <hes> but the huma that injects as really funny it actually works looks and it's not greedy doc punisher that some fans would be wanting at and the odd itself doesn't lend itself to that as well because the odds quite law that actually reminds me a little bit run Otley Amazing Spiderman Yeah yeah yeah so it doesn't really punish a ton <hes> but yeah a rule is quoting joyful punishment spice. Oh Yeah I mean I'm just like him. I've been looking can freely connections between him. Yacht angels you back Charlie on Mister Professor Charles Hester but I but I I I know at least ray we're. I'm sure we'RE GONNA be picking up that mood night the annual yeah well. I mean you'll still feel on S._A._D.. Rate Miss Novel as well as well as I wanted to. I didn't read it yet. A guy tried to read this up to this just then off the back of the punisher annual in what are your what are your initial axis of evil lot. I'm definitely Dante question. Definitely GonNa get the moon not one you know being a fan of vengeance heady on this telling up because I am a fan of acts of vengeance that I want to be like some big conspiracy. Hope is just like random. You know people because it just it gives it a lot more value. I think if there is a common thread I mean it's funny because Charlie was talking about <hes> about the events and all that and if you don't have to buy if you don't follow the tolerant after bought but one of the things that Mambas is <hes> running through different series and making you WanNa collect it lago would never think of getting mismile annual but if there is a continuing story and phase into this punish annual than I will take it out you know Masako Lot back. Sorry <hes> and that's what might also exit vengeance really good the area because you had that back story that this seems to be just as you say random events in account say sorry I've said hopefully it's not really not yeah yeah like I said I'm excited for the mood night. I can't hang on dead pullovers nightmare. Yes I think the next one is Venom Rod. This is madam something Oh Yeah Lady Help Bender Light. I'm not familiar with that character Dina hurdle now. Let's say I'm not familiar with her so okay yeah. It's not good did enjoy it and I love the the epilogue having done by salmon could drain Sqi. Oh yeah that odd. He's been killing it weighed Matt Rosenberg on the punish title itself. He's hot is is really good. <hes> incidentally I wasn't a fan of his in that damnation events vent those wall ago now remember that one with them doctor strange menards and now I mean he didn't art for spun for Awhile too. I like art better here. 'cause I think they like paired him with like a good color yet yet. I mean we'll this epilogue alarm. Just a few really good but what did you think of the brewed quyen of the brewed. <hes> you know the whole kind of thing. I don't know I just thought it was it was ridiculous. It's just like right castle dot Jameson almost it was like sigourney burnt alien alien stuff but yeah it was a little ridiculous the plot getting them in the space. Yeah it was pretty <unk> has been on this fun but while fan that the beginning a bit really good win Johnson's introduced to the punish actually killing these under <hes> what he did lines Russian spies I guess now trying to hijack the space shuttle and and that was actually really cool and then it just became a pretty funny big ride slugfest at the end. James's like what are you doing. These are astronauts astronauts. Don't carry guns in the space exactly exactly now that was that was I thought it was them <hes> <hes> so. What did you what what else you've been reading yet <unk> of red? I am particularly for the shower <unk> things at a hoosier start. I'm love really enjoyed a few. I'm GonNa do something a little different. He Phil. I'M GONNA go down. The Superman. Roots are rare data's Superman Superman's pal Jimmy Olsen did you. I didn't read that but I think Charlie Charlie. They're insane not law though <hes> Canada's got him. He's yeah look Tom Wolfe. Jimmy Olsen Matt Fraction Phil really good very different. I did not expect this sort of comic <hes> away it. was I hear noise early. There's telling us Oh drop dad again. What I you yeah no? I didn't read <hes> Jimmy. Olsen might have to pick that up because I have a big theory that the Internet that I have you heard about the whole Leviathan thing. Is that the big event happening now yeah serious figuring armor who's like taken out all the spy organizations in the D._C.. Universe and what are you reckon. Jimmy Open is alive and Oh wow cool I mean in because they said that they tease it at the end of the last this season supergirl that the Leviathan or like doing that already even though it's it's still going on in the comics and then they just announced that the guy plays I will James Olsen on super girls'll even halfway through the season. Oh my always Leviathan you. Are you putting Europe putting putting the breadcrumbs yeah if pacing the puzzle together that's cool but yeah no. I didn't say I didn't reach him Olsen. You know what I picked up like. It's like a week or two old <unk> out Lois Lane series wanted gay. I WanNa read that I didn't read it <hes> Greg Rock. It's really good great rucker actually yeah because some pretty big name see Matt Fraction Greg Russia <hes> yeah definitely GonNa have to check that one out as well <hes> speaking the corner is well again from our podcast wonder if he's GonNa get a wants to unfortunately not at this Tommy Econ but I'm definitely something would checking checking Jimmy Olsen. Just it's funny. It's auto no it's a really lights comic in it's almost almost like a an anthology lama fraction <hes> split up into law three small stories but they all kind of <hes> overlap with one another <hes> and this really Auburn added that the closest comparison. Maybe is maybe unbeatable. Squirrel girl not read that but it's very light in funny and <hes> <hes> Yeah Yeah Anyway. I was really surprised by that we have anyone wants to see my fear. I put a posted on the Cape Sa- Lunatics blog finally owe us. I used to try to do that weekly but like last year was <hes> watch over time out the I I was like I haven't put up since October.

"matt rosenberg" Discussed on The Nicole Sandler Show

"As was the word that he used to give Kushner the top secret clearance, then the White House counsel, Don Mcgann. I also wrote a memo detailing all the concerns that had been raised about giving Kushner the security clearance. So, but then on top of it, it appears he lied about it here. He is just last month and his daughter echoing what he said just a couple of weeks ago. Too early officials. The no, I don't think I have the thority to do that. I'm not sure. But I I wouldn't I wouldn't do it. Jarrett's a good. I I was I was never involved with the security. I know that he just from reading I know that there was issues back and forth about security for for numerous people, actually. But I don't want to get involved in that stuff. The president had no involvement pretending errands or my husband's Clarence. Sure. And if you believe that I've got well. Anyway, you get the idea Matt Rosenberg is one of the reporters on the New York Times story, he elaborated what we were told is that, you know, Jared had numerous problems they went back to the very beginning. The administration finally last year the president's they give him a security clearance, and that John Kelly understood it to be an order. He wrote a memo about it at that time. In addition, Don Mcgann, the White House counsel wrote a memo, outlining the issues here. And yet he's the president deathly does have the authority to order something to be given clearance, mR, Kushner and Trump both God their clearances. Yeah. Now as of today Friday, both the house intelligence and oversight committees are now investigating the White House's security clearance process. In fact, Elijah Cummings already issued a demand for all White House documents to be turned over I believe by March four. Worth which would happen to be Monday. Stay tuned. So Michael Cohen wrapped up his three days of testimony on Capitol Hill yesterday after seven hours in front of the house intelligence committee. He emerged from the hearing telling the press he'd be back again Wednesday for yet another round of questioning the house. Democrats meanwhile, ramping up their investigations intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff said they're committee will hear from Felix sater's, I mentioned before the Russian-born business associated Donald Trump's who was involved, according to Michael Cohen, at least in the Trump Tower Moscow deal along with Cohen, the house oversight committee will now seek to interview several of the people that Cohen mentioned during his testimony on Wednesday, including the kids yet, Don jR, and vonda they also plan to bring in longtime Trump organization CFO Alan Weisselberg who last summer federal prosecutors granted immunity to testify in their investigation of my. Michael cohen. Although I did hear a report this morning that Weisselberg is not a cooperating witness that he he's not cooperating with the special counsel's office. So I don't know how much they're going to get out of him. We'll see now while most eyes were focused on the Michael Cohen hearings. And whatever that was that happened in Vietnam with the Donald Trump and his his boyfriend Kim Jong Hoon tensions heated up between the nuclear powers of India and Pakistan this week to fill us in on what's going on over there. Here's Nick Kristof from the New York Times, the real risk of of nuclear war in the last week did not involve North Korea involved, India and Pakistan, and there was an incident in which a Pakistan any terrorist group Jason Mohammad blew up a bus with forty paramilitaries in India in Kashmir that started hostilities. That began escalating India's facing an election soon. So the prime minister was under great pressure. He then had airstrikes on Pakistan. We have two countries with nuclear weapons pointed at each other when he will do war games, they very quickly escalate into actually using those those warheads, but today, there's actually progress prime minister Imran Khan of Pakistan. He has promised to release the Indian pilot who was shot down. And I think that that is actually going to be a way to de-escalate this. I was I think a lot of people were really concerned that this was just going to escalate escalate and could be very very scary..

Get cancer, hoping to help humans warded off the bigger a living thing is the more cells at has in the more chance that at least some of those sales will be defective or cancerous so is cancer so rare and elephants were so big researchers at the university of chicago concluded that elephants and their closest relative manatees contain sort of a super gene that specializes in destroying dangerous sells it's something that's evolved over millions of years gene they thought had died out but which came back earning it the nickname the zombie gene the hope is scientists can study this more and then eventually use it to develop cancer fighting drugs for
