Biden Turns From Afghanistan to Domestic Agenda
"I am joined by byron york at the washington examiner and fox news. Good morning byron. How are you good morning you doing. Well thanks The lead story for me today has also the lead story in the wall street journal. The headline is biden seeks to shift focus to domestic issues after afghanistan. Exit white house plans to spend september pushing for passage of the president's agenda as he faces falling poll numbers. I personally believe that. Most americans know about the thousands of american citizens l. p. r.'s and sib holders abandoning afghanistan that they don't quite know the details but they're intently concerned with it and that it's an iceberg issue that the president is mishandling by treating it as something that will be forgotten. David drucker disagrees with me. Brian rosen wall. Very much disagrees with me. That americans are paying attention. What does byron york thing. Well i think that american's feelings about us citizens being left behind ghanistan. I think those feelings are essentially folded in to the poll. Numbers that you're seeing Biden's approval rating for his handling the situation afghanistan which are in the twenties. I mean those are nixon and watergate. Poll numbers So i do think that americans are aware of that now. A couple of things about biden changing the subject. Of course he wants to change the subject answer as well A lot of the pr. The question is what will allow the press. Go along with it if you look at politico's playbook this morning and we just tiny tiny little mention of afghanistan Much more on the biden Agenda on the other hand i was. I didn't hear the first half hour of your program Did you read. Senator blumenthal's tweets. Today did not. I tweeted the story out that he is outraged. He's a democrat but go ahead and tell people about it. Well Senator blumenthal Yesterday afternoon Posted a threat on twitter. My staff and i have worked night and day to secure the safe passage of two planes waiting in mazari sharif to take american citizens at risk afghan allies and their families to safety. My office join forces in this humanitarian mission with an incredible coalition of advocates ngos former servicemen and journalists to try to evacuate our fellow citizens in afghan allies by the way ngos former service members and journalists. Anybody missing from that list. Department and pentagon. Yeah exactly so anyway. He goes on And so this is as you point out a democratic senator which may be necessary to give this issue enough credibility for some members of the press to pay attention

"I can't imagine what the experience on the ground for people who were there whether they were employees of the embassy NGOs working in conjunction with the government contractors or whatever, who are being told you're on your own. If you don't get out in 24 hours, knowing they can't get through many of them these Taliban checkpoints Air source live on Fox right now is like tax likely to continue in Kabul. Yeah, you don't right? We may have to take this place back block by block, even if temporarily. Second. We've got to open these arteries back to the airport. Once we've established And re fortified a cordon around the airport. Give us a semi secure zone to operate from. We're going to have to open up some arteries to get to the airport. We have to do it. There's no other way. We're going to have to be able to move around the city and we're going to have to open up significant arteries to get our people out. And to get out people. Green card residents and people are people who helped us out. We're going to have to have arteries to get there. It doesn't do you any good to have a secure fortified village. If it's a middle in the middle of a desert, nobody can reach We have to open up the arteries to get there. We can do that again, Block by block to There is no more dangerous fighting force in the world. There are Marines and our army of folks on the ground or boots on the ground.

Now granted, We've left him a whole lot of weapons and a lot of armaments this time. But they still can't match the ferocity of our U. S.
Biden Admin Likely to Blame Stranded Americans in Afghanistan for 'Not Registering'
"Me? The United States government can't figure out NGOs, contractors, military people, and who knows? Maybe there are visitors. I'm sure it's not that many, but you can't tell me and give a rough number Who's left behind. You can't reach out and do it. That doesn't sound right to me. Why are they doing that? Most of you already figured it out. This gives me uh No pleasure. Obviously in telling you this nothing but pain. They're preparing to blame these Americans when they leave them behind in August, 31st I hope and pray this isn't true. I desperately hope that the public outcry From this calling your congressman calling your senators what? Whatever it may be whatever you can do to get involved and have your voice heard right now stops them from doing this. But I've heard from multiple credible people well aware of what's going on with Intimate familiarity. Geopolitics. All of this nonsense going on right now that they are preparing to leave these people behind. And the blame game is going to be well. They didn't register. They didn't non register so Sorry by bad.
Many Survivors of Haiti Earthquake Expect No Help From Officials
"Last weekend's devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake. Compounding the misery, Tropical Storm Grace, the aftermath of President Juvenal Maurice's assassination. And, of course, the coronavirus pandemic. ABC is Matt Gutman is in Haiti with more from what we've seen. AIDS seems to have been slow in coming to the southwest of Haiti, that devastated area UNICEF now doing assessments, saying that there are now 500,000 Children without adequate shelter without food without clean water. When you drive by these areas, you see house after house, especially in these mountain villages completely collapsed. And when we spoke to the locals, we noticed that There's nothing there. There was no aid. There were no Tark's. There's no water food being brought to them. There's no insurance whatsoever, and they said they didn't expect to get any not from the government. They hope that maybe NGOs would help. But as far as we have seen help, had not gotten to some of those most remote villages that perhaps needed it most and hospitals right now are slammed. There are patients still coming in. With injuries from the quake. We were at a hospital, a nine year old boy came in with a bilateral pelvic fracture Incredibly painful well over 100. Patients have been medevacked here to Puerto Prince for further treatment. But this is going to last a long time. Matt Gutman, ABC News

What she has to say about what she sees in what Biden is doing. And I wonder if she'd be willing to change places with a woman in Afghanistan. I mean, she wouldn't have to wear a mask. Just a burka. I'm quite serious. Listen to this cut 11 Go. Should the Biden administration have had a stronger U. S military presence for the transition. Well, 1st May I just say that I commend the president for the action that he took. It was strong. It was decisive and it was the right thing to do. We should have been out of Afghanistan while back. But now we're unfortunately one of the possibilities was that it would be a dust and disarray as it is, but that has to be corrected. And it is my understanding from the assurances we have received that the military will be there negotiating with the Taliban for the safe exit of American citizens and friends. People who have helped us our allies. There are people who work in the nonprofit sector, but also not just us. NGOs, but those who have worked in Afghan, uh NGOs as wealth who would be targets Jesus. Another mum blur. The old guard gets older and older and doesn't get out of the wave. You noticed.

Source Tells Dan Bongino the Taliban May Have NGOs Biometric Data
"Administration shows the week path rather than the right path. I'll say again. What I said yesterday. Although I agree wholeheartedly with the decision by both the Trump and the Biden administrations that the mission in Afghanistan had to come to a close. I fully agree The process by which we did that and executed it under this by the administration was a disgrace, a national disgrace, a cosmic level, disgrace and a stain on this administration. They will never, ever wiped clean. Why did I start to show the way I did? That's some nasty things about to happen, and we all need to prepare ourselves for them. Because I like many other people in this space. I'm certainly not the only one. Have sources. People communicate with me like they communicate with other host southern podcasts. Also the cable news host radio host whatever it may be. And I'm hearing a lot of things right now, and none of them are pretty One of them I'm hearing is that the Taliban may have gotten hold of the biometric database over there in Afghanistan that we were using a lot of NGOs, non governmental organizations that had Americans and others in their our allies as well. And us government contractors who may have had Afghan civilians working with us that the Taliban may have a hold of the biometric database. In other words, they may be able to identify who was working with America. The Afghan civilians working with America, They may be able to go to door to door and identify who Americans are who friendlies working with Americans are via fingerprint, retinal scan facial recognition, whatever it may be, if they have these scanners, and they may be able to kill them and what I'm hearing, is there going door to door right now there's a list. And believe me. That list isn't who invited who to invite or not invite to the party. I think you all know what that list is.
What Can Conservatives Learn from Hungary?
"Cut ninety. Five tucker recounts how he witnessed on the hungarian border if someone crossed and came in there immediately process and released back. Here's the difference in hungary. They're not ruled by a corporate class. They're not ruled by self interested on very weak republicans like we have in our country cut ninety five while we're on the border. Say the serbian border. In hungary we saw two people who attempted to come in weekly. Both them turned out to be from syria and we watched what happened when they were apprehended was very straightforward process so straight-forward that was a little confusing to watch. They came over the border. They were immediately picked up by border patrol. They were brought to a detainment area. They're treated politely. Were there the whole time. They were photographed. They were searched for weapons on the outside of their clothing and then they were escorted through a door and we follow them. We are going to further processing to meet with their attorneys or some soros-funded ngo and then moved into southern part of hungary to stay there forever. At least a few years. But that's not what it was. That door was the border and as we followed them through. They were escorted back where they came from

Ngo angie to talk about machine learning on youtube twelve years ago. I think tilt my friends and i created a steady group to study machine learning in. Maybe i can say that. He was my first instructor to the topic. After that i pursue. I worked in many michigan projects. I decided to do peachy in the us. I remember checking all the faculties that work with that worked with machine learning in county. How many publications they had on aisamul in newark. I don't recommend this to be a metric to consider when choosing between grad school led seven years ago or something.

"Incredible explosive, and that is not over selling an article in the Guardian today. Uncovers the global abuse of a cyber surveillance weapons. That weapon is called Pegasus Again. It's a malware.

So a couple of things, she got a microphone on your phone. You got your phone in your bedroom at night. It says down below here also that it can activate the camera on your phone. You keep your phone in your bedroom. Mhm. That should be interesting. Want a phone and your camera activated your bedroom. Do you keep it on? One of those, Um, you know, those charges like the of the contact charges not to plug in charge is the I forget what you call them. The wireless chargers, which is funny, because they're actually they have a wire plugged into the wall. But you put it on the way. So it's not really wireless. But you get what I'm saying, right? You lean it against so the cameras facing up Based on the old bedroom there with the camera and microphone activated. How do you feel about that? According to this report. There's a tool out there that can that can do that. That can turn that baby on Now. You're probably saying to yourself. Oh, no worries. I don't click on any suspicious links.

What Is Pegasus Spyware and How Does It Work?
"What? I'm looking at it right now. What is Pegasus? That is the most important question of the day, folks. The question de jure. What is Pegasus again? It is not the horse from clash of the Titans.

They were recipients of information acquired. Maybe through this Pegasus
BP's Role in a Net-Zero Carbon World
"What is it about that you think differentiates them in this space that it's quite progressive to say that you're you think that an oil and gas firm is exact right place to be in looking at decarbonization the energy transition.

I think that's the first element brooches you conscious decarbonize energy systems by walking with companies. But if we really want to get the pass alignment winnie talks support such as us which energy plus industry transport represents seventy percent of global emissions. So we need to really work with companies such as Gas companies to actually help them decarbonised in. Go along that journey. So i i don't see joining a company such as vpn Gas company which is committed to she decarbonising as a progressive jenny. I think it's actually very much lines towards the ambition on the purpose in terms of what is unique about ep. When i actually had my first conversation with the time when i was actually considering jet joining the had already involved on a series of multiple conversations with multiple types of stakeholders from institutional stakeholders eeg governments. They called as with investors across the world and with less obvious stakeholders such as ngos and some of the most challenging gio so there was a whole process of listening which was going on and that person of listening actually very much shaped his perspective and also the l. tease perspective leadership teams perspective. So what. I was actually struck by the super superstrong alignment within the whole leadership team within the company itself on this ambition to transition at the end of the day. If you're actually working in the morning gas company and your delivering energy to the world he also wanna feel good about what you're doing and in equivocally we all delivering energy to the world's anna frame of the energy transition we have capabilities in the skills to continue doing so trudy energy transition and and towards the low-carbon well

"With hundreds of migrants still dying and shipwrecks in the central mediterranean. The u n high commissioner for human rights on wednesday called on libya's unity government and european union countries to urgently reform their search and rescue policies and practices to better save lives.

Her office has issued a report which notes that at least six hundred and thirty two people have died on the central mediterranean route to europe this year despite a significant drop in the overall number of migrants making this journey in recent years the report expressed concern that the eu and its member states have significantly cut back on maritime search and rescue operations while humanitarian.

Extremists is heritz to fundraise on their platforms. But beyond a la. We're dealing with an issue where there's no political will to address it because you down to pose you of being professional core racism if you Against black lives matter the organization than your houston being racist. And there's really heavy cough. Not just to politician obviously but individuals such as myself so. I'm not sure what it will take for us to come to our senses. I would think that death. Dozens of people authorized the destruction of so many lives in businesses the wanton violence carrying out in the open these extremists. I thought that would have been enough for for example the media wake up but instead i mean what we've been mostly peaceful purchased against racism. Andy i have a theory that when they spill out beyond portland seattle and minneapolis in austin and they get into smaller towns with more conservative law enforcement. Up mayors where folks are going to clash back with them where folks are gun. Owners that this thing turns violent and that that has a tendency to change how these things are perceived which means that families start getting more involved in saying. Wait a second this group. You're going out with. This is not harmless. It's just not fun. You're not trick or treating my suspicion is that's when something is going to be done about it. I hope so because judging by the statements on a lot of people in the public in areas like portland or seattle they still think anti-smuggling. We've been so good while these extremists from fires to the property and the neighbors when they're winning hearts and minds because they're they're getting folks to show up and that disturbs me. Andy speak to parents for a moment. Who have people in the age groups that are susceptible to this and if i could get a better sense of what that is at fourteen to twenty five..

You don't get somebody who goes from. Let's say How hard leftist activists to somebody who is willing to take up on until the martyred without there being lots of stuff between this curriculum.

When they're being these new recruits are being dominated in this process. They don't even see it. For how extreme. It is to them. It's like oh. I see how this make sense in the intrusive. Further and further and further to things ultimately that leads some of them to carry out deadly atop. how is this organization structured. Andy i mean.

So i'm talking about the chat. The capitol hill tournaments which is near downtown seattle last year for more than three weeks by antifa and being on extremist went. There they sent. They made the police evacuate from the station abandoned. Then they took over this entire area. Which by the way houses thousands and thousands of families and just regular residents. They created a hostage situation. Essentially essentially created a hard border and by checkpoints in those carrying guns and other weapons openly. And this was allowed to go on for three weeks. And if you may recall the response from the now seattle i thought time was that this could become a summer of love. Very disturbing We're the members of antiga surprised that they didn't get more resistance that they could go this. 'cause it almost seemed at a certain point that they were thinking wow we. We never expected to get away with this. What do we do now. We gotta keep ratcheting it up absolutely so every it didn't just the for example the more than one hundred twenty days of riots. That happened in portland. Disturbing point was not the same as every other day. Recently started with creating patient outside one of the courthouses in that quickly became sort of a base of operation then from there there was crowdfunding for riot gear for money accommodation and food and weapons. And then you saw them handing out as i witnessed homemade explosives like candy to people protests. Talent directing them here lightest and throw it at the courthouse. Some of these people have been federally charged for throwing explosives inside the federal courthouse. He try to barricade it and set it on fire. So did doing things like this because they were given the leeway to do so. They've response from the local elected officials. Not just important countless of other democrat. Ron said he is that these peaceful protesters expressing a collective wreath over. George floyd and what they were doing..

"Well this is a much anticipated interview for us because if you've followed what antiga and black lives matter manner have done over the last year and especially if you followed even longer than that. There's a fellow named andy no who manages to keep popping up in these places with the camera or finding someone who does and giving it life and saying. Here's exactly what's going on. I gotta tell you it's one thing to hear what antifa is up to. It's another thing altogether to watch it. It's it's frightening. I mean honestly in many cases frightening and he goes into the belly of the beast. Well andy has written a book. It's called unmasked inside antigua's radical plan to destroy democracy and i don't think that's an overstatement. The book hit yesterday and it is the most talked about book in america today and as i told him before we begin our discussion. I think the best thing for him as the left is trying so hard to silence. This book andy. What is what is it about you that drives them so crazy Because i've been with them for several years. Now i really understand now. Ideology know what they're really about so the threat because they have relies on propaganda talking points in the legacy mainstream media and other left-wing politicians to whitewash and leave the public about what this violent extremist movement. Actually they fooled so many people and so thinking. These are anti-fascist opposing white supremacists and even nazis. When instead insurrectionary law a lot violent terroristic newsmen who calls for the political stock nations of their political opponents who carry out acts of mass destruction such as second flyers building when people are still inside as they done gay off the night and courtland ri- that are still ongoing to this day. By the way. You know. One of the i i guess we all have a thought as to who these people are where they come from how they they. They went there without from for ninety nine point. Nine percent of us. We'll never meet one. Hopefully will never come in contact with them. But what are the misconceptions that people have about these people. Who are they really as people. Probably the one of the biggest misconceptions about these Unorganized grassroots spontaneous Action on the street peaceful protest on the street against the fall. Right when i've been reporting on them for many years been underground keeping undercover around them. You see it's you re my book day They were crew numbers to some of these organizations antifa organizations which are linked to one another in network they teach sit on really extreme radical ideology to radicalize over weeks and months. They teach them how to take up arms. Teach them how to make homemade weapons. It's no surprise that in addition to guns and nine and bats and crowbars.

Ngo andy are now in europe because the violence in portland where you were doing your reporting on antifa Threatened you what what is going on right now. What what do you see happening. I don't know why You went as far as europe. But what what can you tell us. I left because while in portland. I've been there as they rights for occurring months on end Eighteen throttle was really on borrowed. Time in that these people who had tried to kill me before had showed up to my own multiple locations. They put out my address though. Put out in real time at any of them think that they see me in public. They miss identified several people they thought was me before so there and all of this was reported to the local authorities and it was reported to that the i and nothing was done Even when names of suspects were given nothing was done all the people that were involved in any in two thousand nineteen. Some of those people With my legal counsel we've identified some of them and that was provided to the local authorities and didn't make any arrests so i think when the doj last year described some jurisdictions in the us zanuck stirs jurisdictions. I don't think that's hyperbole. You do see a breakdown of the rule of law. Essentially people can buy all over the city killing omer demanding. Oh acrobats do on twitter as well and other social media platforms the show to my whole and they face no consequences and other than moving out into nabil. Nowhere i. That's no way for me to live and so temporarily i have left the country but Even beyond portland seattle even the bjp district northwest Field really got the president in the teacher of the. Us appears really blake because all of the variables that have Antifa to grow until the monster that today. The variables are still there this whole excuse using trump and blaming him accusing him of being fascist dictator. That was from the beginning Just a pretext. Any excuse to justify the extremism without out of the way i think They will continue on their agenda. Well these folks seem to me to be marxist. I mean you know when you if if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck duck they they seem in every way to be marksist and i guess it's strange to me to think that You live emerged as this kind of a hero. I mean your openly gay. I don't think you came out in the beginning as a pro-trump or anything like that how do you find yourself in other words. Things are so strange that here you are alone heroic voice against the perpetrators of a fascist and marxist tactics. Where were you before this. And where do you find yourself today. I would call myself a conservative. I tried to avoid that label early on in my journalistic career. But i found that of all the things on. I'm called that's actually one of the more charitable things and regarding other aspects of identity such as my my sexual orientation and my family's background being a refugees from The socialist republic of vietnam It's much hotter for my detractors to throw accusations being a white supremacist light racists. They have done that very seriously. Against other people got then canceled kicked. All social media had their lives destroyed and they try to do the same to me. And when they couldn't do that you try beating me and i still persevere still right for mainstream publications. I'm still on mainstream television. So i'm hoping now with this book is for rita's that they can't get the accurate information about In a way that's easily accessible easy to understand and not new on hoping to reach across the aisle as well. i know. i've been very critical of democrats but they need to recognize that. The threat frightens them as well because these anti extremists are working to abolish the united states. That doesn't stop just abolishing Police you look at what they're what they say and what they do and what. The literature says When they say that they will want to burn down. Burn down the system. They literally. They believe that they can create from the ashes. A new utopia. So it's a colt like ideology in these people. Don't they don't believe they can go too far initiating the goals and that's what really makes dangerous in they don't hide their balance extremism You'll see that they celebrate Footage of them harming other people salting people celebrate celebrate when people mom gets killed. They celebrated they kill the trump supporter in portland by an who left behind him Buster saying i'm one hundred percent. Nancy fuck accelerated. They downtown streets. I saw an outside the justice center for these people who have no shame in their open weakness. And that's what we should be concerned about. Is that they know act can go be to wasserman well as i said earlier. This is the definition of domestic terrorism and criminal activity and the question is only y law enforcement and Local state and federal government is not stepping in to protect the people of the united states. I can't fathom it. we do you suppose. This is going in other words if they have been openly against biden Which is of course in some ways a delicious turn of events As sick as it is windy as oppose this goes from here. Do you think biden in company will find the courage necessary to To prosecute them further crimes the rules of the game that have been set out Going back several years now. Is that if you criticise antifa. That much meaning your profile View against or critical black lives matter. That must mean. You're against block americans so these are the rules. The liberal establishment has sat up and I don't see how they're gonna be able to walk around that because any time. You use the force of the law to prosecute violent criminals -ffiliated with these movements than be around. They're going to.

"Hey folks i'm talking to andy no spelled ngo. I suspect you have seen his name around if your social media and if you're following People who seem to be at the forefront of actually doing journalism there so few out there that it's hard to miss them. Andy i want to go back to where antifa came from. They don't seem to have come from nowhere. They do seem to be coordinated. What can we know in other words. I think many people think that george soros funds them. What do you think is happening with them. And with the The blm violence. So i see to dispel conceptions about antifa in the book and one of the misconceptions is a lot of people believe that there is no formal organiz element to them. It's really just people coming together spontaneously to oppose the right. That's not the case. And i know that because i've been leaked documents from a person who went through the recruitment process On these documents published in full in the book by the original american unsafe ugly largest oldest antique organization. The us out to portland so what you will see what that group and they're in it's part of logic network called the torch network and they all followed the same curriculum or playbook if you will does a. Recruitment process is betting presence radicalization paris. There's secret meetings there trainings. So people who there are. You don't go from just being somebody who's on the hard laugh to somebody who wears the uniform in takes explosives and knives and other weapons to these riots. The intent popping of people and destroying property. There's this whole process. That happens in row spitting onto funds one of the prime examples of how that recruitment and radicalization happens. Unfortunately it's all done secretively and journalists. Who should be curious about. The stuff are not so. We've know very little. I believe on the first person to publish Inside information about anti funds spoke at now this for how they organize in how the funded is actually doesn't come from a single person who's providing secret bunny to them. It's such the very simple happens right. Openly in front of us day crowd In the crowd fund with the tacit approval essentially attack They organiz campaigns. Go fund me. They will make accounts on cash shop in in these get circulated through their social media networks which are huge masset to the point where they will literally millions of dollars so the minnesota freedom fund for example grades. Thirty five million dollars that the help of people like now dp come. I hair and other staffers who on the biden campaign Celebrities in the bail fund was used to build riders in minneapolis and saint paul and other cities in in addition to riders. They're also bailing out. People accused of attempted murder. Tempted rate In portland and similar bail fund raised over one. Point three million dollars so they've created this whole system. Sensually out in the open of a carrying out to tv's really plain sight with no opposition in the people who were under the belief that antifa will disappear be weekend because biden lawn entirely wrong analysis. Be many lanny riots in the pacific northwest since november. We've had writing on an inauguration day in portland in seattle that we're extremely riot extremely violent an appetizer weeks ahead of time on twitter and facebook. Another place it's so these activities of Secretively in terms of how they radicalize recruit and who their members are but most activities done. No pin just downloaded. I've always been astounded by this. I mean this is going on forever but the the cowardice and the The incompetence and the the lack of fundamental values that we see in our ruling class is especially on the left but unfortunately not only on the left to take action in other words if ever anything would qualify as domestic terrorism. Certainly this would. I mean we have innumerable instances of violence physical violence against human beings like you but also property damage incalculable. A property damage. This is domestic terrorism. It has a political goal. And as you've been telling us and as you tell us in your new book unmasked. We don't seem to be dealing with it the other day. When biden was inaugurated he referred in his inaugural speech to white nationalism and domestic terrorism. As the problems he must deal with. We must deal with them. We must wipeout. And i knew when he said that that he was demonizing Basically trump supporters trying to smear as white nationalists as big. It's as violent and again the irony. A even though he has been elected we have antifa I think just yesterday. I saw on twitter that they had a big banner. We don't want buy it in a we want whatever whatever it is. revenge with. The photo of clash called rifle on it. Okay so there's there's irony in that. We have very very foolish. People like kamala harris extensively supporting them and now that she is one heartbeat away from the presidency or in the case of biden one heart murmur away from the presidency. She she finds herself. You know not the hero of these people again. We have ten seconds and then we'll come back but what. What do you think is happening. Well the democrats have fed ingrown this dragon and now i think it's too big for them to slay mucus stay on on imported alan.

"Program wonderful to have you. Thank you your book. New book coming out the same day. My new book comes out but the books are very different. People by both of them yearbook is titled unmasked inside antiques. Radical plan to destroy democracy. And the anybody who has been following any of this stuff Particularly on twitter. Which i am now and i guess for the next four days. It's been a week. they know you. You have been a very bravely at the forefront of this from the beginning when you were abused And harassed by some of these vicious antifa folks who Through milkshake on you and and rescue up and you have been a hero to so many people so first of all. Thank you for what you've been doing For all of us who are not doing it. Tell us about your story. Andy because people wanna know where did you grow up. And how did you find yourself being a sort of guerrilla journalist at these strange times in america so i first started covering antifa not knowing what they were back in november. Two thousand sixteen so after the surprise electoral donald trump the reaction of people in my city portland oregon was to take to the streets to not just boyce agreements but actually Violently i was a student journalists at that time for the student paper up portland state university graduate program in. That was the best time that i came face to face with my own eyes with marauding groups of organized street thugs who wearing the same black uniforms and black nas in carrying weapons smashing gnashing property businesses starting fires all allegedly in the name of anti fascism and i just continue to cover because political violence than became very routine and normal portland through twenty seventeen two thousand eighteen. Twenty nineteen portland. In fact was becoming infamous as the epicenter of american political violence for these shocking scenes of violence on the streets and while the coverage from the legacy media of while the local press was giving to these violent extremists. They were not calling antibiotics. Puffer one they were describing them as anti-fascists who were opposing nazis and the far right and white supremacist. But what i saw a being was They were indiscriminate and who they were brutally attacking in a stall team the label of fascist. What's applied not just to neo nazis but actually to any trump's border any conservative. And actually any american you even waves and american plot even attacked one of their own supporters. Because he made the mistake of bringing a us flag to one of the protests so And my criticism through my writings and wall street journal and gauging speak out on social media eventually the target in two thousand nineteen. They didn't just rough me up about some while is coming practice. they actually beat me With their assess that were reinforced. These apart in gloves and it landed near in the hospital with the brain bleed so I had a brain injury from that and just in time stints in continuing to sunshine shots from the rooftops to local elected officials about this threat that was growing exponentially quick in the city and unfortunately ignored and smeared by colleagues in who share my profession at somebody who they said that if on against fascism so all that led eventually to what i had been predicting which is thought in twenty twenty and really put the city of portland in other american cities under siege. Portland stood out because there were more than one hundred twenty. Two days of mike lee riots. Like just think about that. Like as that everything happened on the sixth generation in capitol hill That was happening every night and worse in my city and it was people who is also targeting federal property but at that time the way of the media framework in politicians from the they were okay with the because they would seem as opposition to the trump administration. I have to say what is obvious that it's very hard for anyone. I think to process what is happening in america right now in other words the what. You've just described. It seems like something out of the proverbial dystopia novel. It's simply doesn't seem that it could happen. Because i think most of us have assumed that our leaders are competent enough to separate fact from fiction and do the basics. We're just talking about the basics. Heraldic simply to do their jobs and protect their citizens to protect property. It's the basic stuff of which the social contract is made and here we are but of course they've been doing that so before we talk to you about your personal experiences. I want to ask you obviously in your new book unmasked which i hope people will buy you talk about this but i wanna ask you for those of us out here who are not on the inside. What is amazing is that we don't seem to hear anything in what you call the legacy media about who these people are where they have come from. Who is funding them. Can you tell us where they came from. In other words you said two thousand sixteen suddenly. They're protesting As soon as trump is elected where did they come from. Who are they organized them. I'm amazed even. I don't know the answer to this. Going to nikki taleb ball in the book but to sum up to your listeners so portland city seattle as well sisters said. He has always prided itself on being left. Wing political monoculture so people there are more than just democrat there to the hard last and they were quite In a lot of them are just alternatives in weird for the sake of being different Reason sure and so. Naturally within not context it's been a fringe of the fire last that has upgraded on Politically however in. This is the space that phone. How the defenses in starting november twenty sixteen going back some months earlier before that they were really antifa in their far left extremism allies. Really able to move right in the middle of the mainstream left because of the tax saying that they were there to oppose. What is now a fascist regime because of trump's election right and so they were given the accesses which normally should have been traditionally would be rejected by the world. Things such as violence assaults down eliza looting in whatnot these things out given approval because it was seen as opposing something that needed all those to fight together and the all comparis- trump trump being compared to hitler fodder officers being called the gestapo and so it created the atmosphere Where all of the criminal activities down to fall and company include black lives matter in that were seen as legitimate responses and so police departments on particularly after twenty thirteen. Because of what happened Ferguson missouri they'd have just been continually and exponentially de-legitimize so with the weekend law enforcement in his law. The approval on city council and mayors from what was happening it led to the political left wing violence. Being normalize the an accepted which is why the those who were allowed us in condemning. What happened happened on. The sixth of january capitol hill was silent when people carried out similar activities in dozens of other american cities throughout twenty twenty will so i still wanna know where they came from so to speak in other words. There seems to be Clearly coordination there seems to be organization. That's not the kind of thing that if it was just a you know a group of people deciding they wanna get together and protested or violent. They wouldn't behave the same. There seems to be as i say coordination i've just got a few seconds left but In the ten seconds we have tell us what you think and then we'll come back. They because they do actually organized through networks of formal groups. Well listen. I'm thrilled to have the as my guest and eap folks. It's andy no it's spelled ngo dino.

How did that water and that program get. Maybe more efficient or maybe more effective and then how is that then communicated back to the funder to within skill that program it's interesting so i was in the in worked for the government for a long time in the military and and i think i don't actually know this for a fact but i'm pretty sure box. It's now <hes> working with u._s. Army so we are the right i thought so but it's one of those things where like you take something like cloud storage like clebration insecurity in all those kind of like important facets. You'll get something like that where it's like if you're an ngo using pen and paper like you have no hope to be able to show show the impact that you're really doing approved the things that you are doing on the ground like you just have no hope you have no opportunity to perfect example and quote of our international rescue committee has a number of office is doing economic development work in the field and they had reims in rooms and buildings full of paper invoices that their funders required they see so in a project that they pursued digitized that that paperwork which again were just invoices to prove to the funder that they were in fact implementing programs and utilizing the money money for the right thing as they digitized that not only was the visibility <hes> faster for what was happening in the in the in that invoicing area to get more funding but the program itself became more efficient efficient between new york and cordova and the other four places that need to communicate so these stories are very real accelerating impact accelerating the ability for the sector to get more support to do more of what it does best and i think out add to that to that you know again i was. I was applauding paper documents for the us army in two thousand and thirteen agree. This isn't one hundred years ago right. Now is essentially very recently and u._s. Army has quite a bit more money than the average ngo and so and it's things like that that i think people kind of just forget you take for example. We've had a bunch of your ceos on our i._t. Visionary show <hes> and how brilliantly smart a lot of these i t. leaders and technologists are in large companies. The average india ngo doesn't have a c._i._o. That is you know leading digital transformation nations someone that actually owns that i'm curious like how do how do we allow or create a situation where if you don't have that type the head count if you don't have those type of leaders on the ground necessarily to do a digital transformation. How do we kind of like approximate that sort of thing or you know like cities having thank. C._i._o.'s is a new thing for example. I mean this is like so obvious now in retrospect but i'm just curious like what are you all seeing on the ground. I would say a couple things on what what we're seeing being. The first is that again looking at intermediaries like net hope other organizations like tech soup that sit at the center of tech and <hes> a nonprofit are doing a lot of work to try and solve that issue to try and gather the insights to try and pilot things with organizations that do have c._i._o.'s house right that can invest in that can share with they know <hes> to benefit others. That's absolutely a vision of what net hope is trying to do and tech soup another one doing that for at a much larger scale they they they have over a million nonprofits around the world that are that are members of tech soup so i think that's one thing i think intermediaries are important. I think investing in intermediaries important to salute basically the centerpiece of of of october philanthropic strategy girvan this something years and what do you mean by intermediaries the way i would describe it as ecosystems that sit at the intersection of of in this case nonprofits in technology so instead of an organization or company making grants one by one to organizations to maybe help them with technology we can make one grant to an organization that has the leverage in the reach and the network to serve in that hopes case fifty seven and tech soups case over a million and have have an outsized impact hopefully on on what we're able to drive to those organization recognizing that i mean digital transformation journey right and it starts in different places for different organizations. Small guys are really just trying to get stable insecure systems and platforms you know and then you move in. It's it's not something you leapfrog. Even though cloud is amazing has great opportunity in the sector <hes> you still have this journey and so how do you help folks in this journey. Nonprofits are still trying to utilize technology -nology that was built for enterprise for profit companies sources. <hes> you know things that were built for the nonprofits themselves or or helping bridge that and then they don't have the capacity even the large nonprofits the underside enterprise nonprofits are not well funded we could talk about maybe the funding issue and yeah overhead issue there <hes> and then the small nonprofits don't have i._t. Staff they have the accidental techie. It's the person who sits closest to the printer is or the social media person is is there technologists so recognizing that investing in these intermediaries that can add scale support organizations is super super important and for us to also go in depth with some of our strategic partners is important as well and showcase. I would just throw in that the that the nonprofit technology enterprise network also about three hundred different technologies are surrounding the many hundreds of thousands of organizations that their content reaches is another intermediary your listeners to check out as well and these are these are they're all very well proven with network tech zubin and ten organizations that have helped the multiply the impact of our programmes a capacity building group in the tech sector dramatically way i would just add on the dimension so making philanthropic investments in these ecosystems is important but it's also like there's a lot we can do within our own companies to to address the issue of nonprofit tech capacity right so all of us donate and discount our technologies for nonprofits in some way <hes> that helps tremendously and this lead just cross some of those barriers of of cost right and justification another. I think probably more important we can help us to get our employees and our in-house expertise not sort of wrapped around these organizations and i was gonna actually turn it to peggy because they do something absolutely amazing in this area and i'll start by. I was on the other side running charity and i can tell you overwhelming it was when people come to see us technology and use that one because my board was brute ticky from the area and i <hes> so what was very appealing for me very sweet ease they intentionally from day one from the moment nitwit was in edison section with gobert a founder it was about building the capacity and it's about helping the sector as a whole so we yes we care about technology and wanna take you to drive chant and help a nonprofit it does sound a price accelerate the mission but how do we build capacity to those orcs and ha- delivered to your asset so when we think of all of you agrees right within over technology with people thinking about knowledge so we spend a lot of effort through swiftly bono and sweet capacity programs in our where we match our employees we's charities charities to basically learn about the technology and we've also pushed that even more to what it's all business functions. We have marketing employees that know about marketing and they can help yep so it goes back to us so what brings us to the table is. I love what you say about enabling capacity. That's really what we spend a lover a way i write. We enabled her employees. I'm pleased to give back yeah. Let's say peg it to your point their mental model wise like you look at the assets of a of a corporation and specifically technology corporation their superpowers typically their platform or technology or their suite of technology and their people but there's also the institutional assets like office space like brand influence. I mean you can imagine a voice exactly right. If if we're able to elevate organizations doing important work that others can jump on board where winning and i would say also that for the mental model of the other asset of the company being your customers and the admins of their technology you can imagine what unleashing that can mean as well so people that are raving fans about are unique technologies where frankly have already put together the four technologies represented in this podcast to have those customers in the edmonds of those teams in our customer base <hes> against against these challenges that are out there that technology can help solve or build capacity is also important so we can't can't forget that asset near like so for example were <hes> michigan small company but but <hes> like we're part of the sales one program like we we from the essentially from the founding of the company did that. I think that there's a lot of companies out there big and small small that want to figure out a way to do something but they're kind of in that like what should i be doing and then if they're a big company and they are maybe doing something they're like like. Are we doing the right stuff. Are we doing the wrong stuff. You know are we kind of swimming in circles. So i'm curious you know from a funding perspective for for the companies that are trying to make sure that they're you know dollars or are tracked that they have impact <hes> that it's like you know authentic authentic to the to the organization to do you know certain things you know if you're wag for example you know you're gonna be working. A lot of of you know <hes> we. We interviewed them talking a lot about what they do and stuff like that. I'm curious like when it comes to organizations that are thinking about <hes> how can they they do more like what what are some best practices there. I'll start by saying. I think you hit it on the head like the it has to be. It has to be so tightly aligned to your business strategy that no one whatever say oh gosh. Why are they doing that or what's the impact of that. Is that really what they should be doing with those sources so if you're at the beginning of the journey the easier in some ways right really look at where your company isn't where it's going what your core assets are. What makes you unique sometimes. It's.
