That's exactly what I'd be like telling your boss and let's see how well that goes because These folks aren't even interested in representing their company or their country. We walked to the average Department of state or talk to some of these diplomats. They really do think that the goal of United States diplomacy is helping the countries that they're in.

But until you know as long as they're on the air, as long as they're still working for politico, and for all these left wing rags. They're going to keep lying to you. I have no doubt about it. Chris Bedford. Thank you very much. Um, guys, When we get back, we'll take your calls on all of this. 844 542 42. I do think I want to talk about the whale stuff a little bit.

You know, I'm putting this together. He's dusting off the Boston accent. He's getting ready to weld the crowds and I I'm curious of people. I want to say if you believe him, But I'm curious what people think about this 844 540 to 42. I've had my fair share of free lunches during my time at the Howie Carr Radio network.

No. She's got all right. All right. I'll talk to you later. Folks are getting back. I really enjoy this show. There's something totally different about live radio. You just can't get away without your podcast. Very serious topic here. Was this thing, a bio weapon, And if it was, you'd have to create a vaccine. And wouldn't it be really crazy? If the person that was in China who knew all about a vaccine they were making for a coronavirus before it became a pandemic mysteriously turned up dead. I want you to go to this piece. Everyone, please. You can check it out my newsletter or you can just go right to it. By my friend Kyle Becker and Becker News. Here. Is that the headline in the piece? China game Wuhan lab secret military activity. Led to a February 2020 covid vaccine, patent report finds Again. If you were going to make a bio weapon, you damn well better have a vaccine first. Here's the first quote from the peace and it's quoting some research by an Australian newspaper called the Weekend Australian. It says, quote there talking about this woman Zhao use N It, says Zhao, who conducted the research in conjunction with the Wuhan Institute, University of Minnesota and the New York Blood Center, was the first to file a patent for a covid neck Covid 19 vaccine on February 24th of last year. According to documents obtained by the weekend. Australian This was only five weeks after China admitted there was a human to human transmission of the virus. What were they doing? Building a vaccine and spending all this money on a virus that they had said Don't worry. There's no human to human transmission. Does that make any sense to you only if they were lying. The holder of the patent. The piece goes on his striking Zhao use end is listed as the lead inventor on the patent application lodged by the Institute of Military Medicine Academy of Military Sciences of the People's Liberation Army of China. The report states folks again When are these media types going to remove their craniums from their rectums? And say, Holy Moses? This sounds like a really big story. China said to us Don't worry, There's no human to human transmission while working on a virus there telling the world isn't transmitted human to human. What are they? What are they inoculating? What are they producing A vaccine for pangolins. The same time there telling the world there's no human to human transmission. Their military is working on a vaccine and nobody out there thinks that's a story. But this show and Fox and and Newsmax and other entities, nobody else. What about CBS? NBC, ABC, You're going to cover this. Obviously, the Chinese government is lying. Obviously. They weren't developing a vaccine for bats. The piece goes on. The Australian. That's that newspaper contacted a viral expert who corroborates that the vaccine timeline is virtually impossible. Nikolai Petrovsky, a medical researcher at Flinders University, who has been developing a covid vaccine. Said that while it was technically possible to have a vaccine in this time frame, it appeared to be quote a remarkable achievement. He said it left open the possibility that the Chinese scientists from the People's Liberation Army, I might add who were working on a vaccine before authorities publicly admitted there was a coronavirus outbreak. You're darn right. That appears to be the case. Want to see this plot gets super ugly now. Here's the money quote from this piece. Quote the plot thickens. One of the scientists involved in the research you use in Was the subject of a quote unexplained death in May of 2020. After a probe into the origins of Covid 19 had begun. Gonna let that one um Stew a minute. You need me to read that again, One of the scientists working with the People's Liberation Army of China at a bioweapons institute that studies Corona viruses and appear to be man made. Especially this coronavirus was the subject of a quote unexplained death after people started looking into the origins of the coronavirus, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, Russia Rachel Maddow, Anybody Coffee boy, Brian Stelter, Anyone Brian Williams, who was fought in every war since the American Revolution, remember Brian Williams?

"They would take to the whale boats that was, said Thomas Nickerson. That cabin boy was with him. When this happened on would leave on account of it, he said. They had to drag Pollard off the deck. You did not want to get back into a whale boat. Under these circumstances. Luckily, they would be rescued the next day. But as Pollard would say, to a missionary who he would meet on his return to Nantucket, in of all places, you know the Pacific Islands, Tahiti, one of the places they had decided not to go to. Because of fear of cannibals. He would say to the missionary back home. I will be judged on the lucky man. And yes, that was right. You would never go to sea again and live out his life as a night watchman. Yeah, is interesting. You've mentioned a couple of alluded to a couple of the sort of written sources for this story. Um, you know, and you know, as a historian wanting to tell these compelling stories from the past, we rely on The evidence that that exists for it. I think it's really interesting in this case that there are To really compelling firsthand accounts by two of the survivors, And then there are a variety of these sort of secondhand accounts were like the missionary who met Captain Pollard then wrote down what he remembered Pollard saying and able officers doing the same thing. Um I would love to hear a little bit about, you know, sort of your encounter when you when you were on Nantucket before he wrote the book with these sources that that inspired actually, like, you know, looking more closely at this and writing about it a new Yeah, well, You know, I I When I look back, I didn't know how lucky I was to be living on their packet where you had not only this Wonderful Whaling Museum and research center, which has Thomas Nickerson's account, which he wrote late in life, which had just been really newly discovered when I Took up the story. It's just a extraordinary document it Z. A. It's the kind of, you know book you get at a at a stationery store today, you know where he had written out his account of it and even done a wonderful drawings of the event. So the whole that in your hand is extraordinary. But there's also the Athenaeum, which has its own great archive. The newspapers had just been recently microwave microwave, Frank like microfilm, there's the town building. But one of the I have to say one of the resource is the historical you guys had was that the genealogy had just gone online. And so it was possible now, really, for the first time. Take two people and figure out how closely they were related. I was very curious how close really related. We're the Nantucket, hers and so I I did that with each one, you know, figure it out how they were all they were all related, you know, over and over again, and you know, and survival situations. Is people who is groups of people that have a pre existing bond. Whether it's spiritually whether it's cultural that tend to make it out at a higher rate than those who don't have those kinds of bonds. And so you know, that probably helped the fact that there were only five minutes Nantucket survivors. From the whale boats at the end, but you know the other thing. I went to Mystic Seaport and spent time in the Charles W. Morgan, the last remaining Uh, American wouldn't whale ship spent a lot of time folks hold channeling what? What it was would have been like when a whale attacked, um, and went to the Kendall Whaling Museum, which then had its own wonderful collection. That's now a part of New Bedford Whaling Museum. Another key source. And so all of these provided you know, history is history isn't what happened in the past is what It's what we tell using the evidence of what came from the past American history TV with Nathaniel Philbrick and the heart of the sea. You know you're never you don't know everything about what happened. You just have these these artifacts from the past. Whether it's a journal letter, a newspaper account all of these kinds of things and you take that altogether. You know, there was even cruelest here that that the NHL all sorts of the stuff you take this all together, and it's the historian's job, then to try to tell the story as best you can being truthful to what historical accounts you have, and inevitably They disagree in some instances between chasing Nickerson that happened and then you have to make the judgment call who to believe Yeah, joined by Michael Harrison, research chair of the Nantucket Historical Association. Well, it's interesting because we You know, the Nantucket Historical Association holds You know quite a few of these things that that you work from, and you know, in 2015, a film version of your book came out the big Hollywood treatment. Yeah, Inspired by. I might put it that way inspired by your book, and so here at the N H. A. We took that opportunity to sort of re assess the Essex tragedy and do an exhibit about it and look a new it some of these artifacts and some of these things and bring them out and put them on display. And it was one of the first project I worked on. Here at the association and you know we're going to do a show about the SX with all of our stuff about the Essex and so well, Okay, let's let's see what we have in terms of artifacts and As I'm find of saying the entire Circle Association holds all the surviving artifacts from the Essex disaster, both of them Because when you look when you look at, you know, one way of looking at it things that are actually from the ship. There's basically one Um, you know, it's it's this piece of twine Go is the most heartbreaking artist act. Totally. Totally. You want to describe the twine for us? Yeah, This is a crew member. And it Z this little framed piece of twine where a one of the crew members in the whale boats would, uh Take the fibers from sales from his clothing and create. We've a piece of twine out of it, and you often see this behavior and survival situations where so much time is passing. You're terrified all the time. What you do under these circumstances to just stay saying you find so you take up the equivalent of a hobby and in this instance This young teenager was creating this piece of twine, and when he was pulled out of the whale boats, he still had that piece of twine with him, which clearly was important enough to him and his family. It eventually ended up here. Do you remember when it? Yeah, part of the collection. It became part of question. 1914 Benjamin Lawrence, the crewman who made it kept it. And then he gave it to Alexander Starbuck was great great historian of Nantucket and end of Nantucket whaling. I don't know all of the exactly when it was gifted, but it ended up with Starbuck Starbuck gave it to the N H A in 1914. And it's sitting. It's just as you describe its in this this little ivory frame with a card that says, you know that he was in the boat 93 days and this be made this piece of twine. It is very powerful artifact, which is there in these boats and they have the ship and they all that's left. Is this piece of twine? Yeah, very powerful. And now obviously, you know, Nat's already alluded to manuscript. There are crew lists from previous voyages of the Essex. There's Worf books from other voyages of the ship that list the crew and have all the crew signatures. Um, you know, there's that we own up. The museum holds a silver ladle that was given to Daniel Russel, the previous captain of the Essex A T end of the previous voyage, which has been very successful. He was then given a new command a new ship, and that's where Pollard, his former first mate, stepped up. To the ship was regarded as as having greasy luck as it is being a. Yeah, a good one to be aboard on glee have artifacts that reflect that. You know, I think another thing with the association holds. It kind of reflects the power of this kind of event in the imagination is a trunk. It's a small travel trunk of the period. And it was fetched out of the sea. The story is that it was fetched out of the sea from near where the Essex wrecked and Man on one ship who had it. Sold it to a man on another ship. With this is from the Essex. And man bought it and took it and held a deer. And then he lived in Ohio. He retired there. His family's from there and in the 18 nineties after this organization was founded. His family gave the trunk to the N h a. Knowing the importance of the Essex Do you tuck.

"Whales. Those those quicker so loud that they can paralyse your hand. If you're in the water there wanna loudest animals on earth. So anyway, just like the vibrations. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So the wheel ships many of them out of Nantucket. But since then anti-whaling museum was closed this month they had to call the New Bedford whaling museum. Michael diaries, the curator of maritime history at the New Bedford Willie museum. And I think I actually interrupted him in the middle of a train of thought when they called him early. Do just doing well. How are you? We're trying to figure out who built the Russell and win the rest of the whale. He's he was despondent about it. We all do. We all do it was. Well, it must be kind of hard fact checking something that happened centuries ago, or you know, I it isn't when especially when it comes to American maritime history and wailing history is absolutely an an extraordinarily well documented, we could tell you the color of the people who sailed on any given ship out of New Bedford new teen forties. So I was like, well, you'll absolutely be able to help me figure out how fast the Nantucket sleigh ride was. Well, yes. And no because one of the real tough bits about that is the amount of disinflation misinformation disagreement of conversation took place among Wellman as exactly how fast they were going ship had to be a really Braley environment. Don't you think like fisherman exaggerate, right? Then Wailers must like really, certainly so, but happily the New Bedford Weli museum is like thousands of logbooks kept on. Chips and other primary materials in their archives, and like a canon of like a dozen or so like wailing documents and one of them was written in eighteen seventy four by William Morris Davis, it's called Nimrod of the sea. And in this book, he says that sperm wells could go for ver- works, Bert. A sperm whale could to- a wail boat at about twenty twenty or twenty five miles an hour. This this short spur thing is really important because firm wells are sprinters. And there's this other government document that might pulled out the fisheries and the fishery industries of the United States published in eighteen eighty seven and they're of doubtful of this twenty to twenty five miles number. They wrote in here twenty or twenty five miles per hour is rather a high estimate of the speed of a whale ready for this. I'm about to really let you down. I can't go any lower. He's been his eyes have been cringing. They have. Yes. This next part? He says in the same documents written that a sperm. Well, could do do this. Sperm whales have been known to run out three hundred thousand line and four minutes three hundred eighteen hundred feet, so you can actually calculate this out. It was figured that six stuff. I six to ten miles per hour. Sort of was a was a man talk sleigh ride. Just don't don't keep going at actually actually calculated out at it actually goes to five point six six miles an hour, so six ten miles. Even Jaren walk that quick, but Mike did throw a caveat. But the the big on known. Here's fin whale. And that is a big unknown. So the fin whale was not really hunted in the acuity, usually because it's open ocean and open ocean creature doesn't school the same way. Sperm whales do and it's very very fast. So he says every once in a while Yankee woman would get fast to offend wail. And those things those things can swim, you know, fifty miles an hour. Fifty miles an hour. Horse. Yeah. Fast to offend whale. I could not find any other Gration of this, by the way, the fin whale. I think this is a stretch. I think that what's cool about a fin whales it can cruise run twenty or twenty three miles an hour and a conspiracy up to thirty or so so we're gonna have to we're gonna have to fact check this, and we might have to cut this. But well. Well, we don't have the cut it. We can just say like we can leave it as a tantalizing thing that is completely uncovered. And all right because look at next face when you say now. But it's okay. It's okay. Did you guys know that intrepid Yankee whalers would go below the belly of Awale during a whale hunt? And then back to the topic. Shoot from. So I would say I I would say the ride is has been defeated in my opinion. I did much better than I thought though, the fin whale twists. You know? I was not expecting the fin whales. Whist all the kids are doing the fin wheel twist. So what's next boats boats? So I just wanna say I the boat is probably not going to win. But I think that I can impress you. So I the Polynesians two thousand years ago explorers from Samoa Fiji Tonga, they set out to explore ten million square miles of ocean in canoes with twin holes outriggers and full sales. They were great navigators. Captain, cook, great explorer traveled around the world, he estimated that a tongue in canoe could sail three miles to our to captain cook was the one who popularized calling canoes as a way to trivialize them this trail. Why would trivialize it to canoe? Just a canoe when when you see these things in their huge like two dozen people sleeping on them. So warthogs in the Polynesian islands are called captain cookers. I think that's fit. That's an apt ending. Imagine such horrible burn. So then on the other side of the world around the same time. If you're in Europe, and you spotted some ships on the horizon in the eight hundred or nine hundreds they're probably Viking ships. And you know, if you're just a regular monk, you know, you're just eliminating some manuscripts you see ship on the horizon, and you're like that looks dangerous. But I know I've got a couple of hours because you know, that ship has to drop anchor than learning to row ashore or they have to find a harbor, but if it is in fact, Viking ship that is not true shipping. -nology was better than anyone else in Europe. So they could go places. No, one else could go, and there's two reasons for that one is the ships could sail very close to the win. So they could sail more into the winds than other ships allowing them to go places. Even if the wind was not favorable. And the other thing is they had very very shallow draft. So they could sale even though the water was not very deep which meant that these warships could sail very far up river and make raids where they were completely unexpected. And they didn't need a peer or doc or anything else, you could just sale it up onto a sandy beach jump off the bow. And they'd be ready to fight. She wouldn't even have time to finish a cherub on your limited names. The letter.
