Pomona Unified Schools Bring Back Campus Police
"Pomona unified school district to bring back campus police. Following the funding movement. And Fox News. So this is interesting. The Pomona. Unified school district. Said it was no longer going to fund officers on the campus. They would substitute instead of officers they would substitute proctors, which means nothing, right? In order to practice. A whole super fight. An unarmed. Because you know those who want to shoot up schools and I need to talk to you about the Michigan one. Yeah. But I'll get to that in a moment. So. They withdrew funding, then there was a shooting on the campus. And then their back to funding. Why are the residents of Pomona not demanding that every single member of the board of the Pomona unified school district resign? There is no, you know that there is no price paid for left wing anarchy, none, none. That's right. Say that Ivermectin works and you are banned from media. Defund police at a school. And nothing happens to you. There is no risk on being a leftist. You risk nothing. It does not matter how crazy how destructive your position is. How many people are killed as a result like in Philadelphia. No price is paid. Every single member of the Pomona unified school district should resign and walk through the streets with an eye apologized sign.

Kevin McCullough on the Nuances of Unrest in Kenosha, WI
"Today right now is Kevin McCullough. He's talking about the Kyle whitton written house written house verdict that just came in just about an hour or so ago. And let's continue on with that with Kevin McCallum. Kevin? Well, we were talking before the break a little bit about the dynamic. I think the media really missed on this because when you're talking about police violence in New York or Chicago or Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, LA, you're talking about a very different dynamic than you are in Kenosha Wisconsin. I've been to Kenosha Wisconsin, a bunch of times. It is a college town. You have the big university of Wisconsin there. You have the it is in essence. It is a city technically, but it is in the middle of farmland. And you don't have people just rolling up to go protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin on a regular basis. There's a very different sort of vibe and feel. And when people are saying, why would Kyle rittenhouse who didn't live in the exact neighborhood where this went down? Why would he come over there to do that? Well, in the Midwest, farmers have each other's back in small towns look out for one another, and so forth. And by the same standard, if you had these protesters bust in causing the perpetrated and very intentional chaos that they were trying to create, then why wouldn't people that were from the region also say, well, wait a minute, not in my house. I'm not going to let this go down. So I think the media fundamentally misunderstood the fabric of who they were covering and where it was from, but they also obviously got it quite wrong in that the prosecutors just did not have they didn't have much of a case. When you have one of the victims saying that he pointed a gun at the accused and has to admit that, you know, he had basically threatened him by pointing the gun at him. That's an immediate wash. I'm surprised that the judge didn't almost at that point throw that case out completely just on
Congressman Jim Jordon Explains the GOP's 3-Step Plan to Rein in Big Tech
"Congressman Jordan, I was invited after the election to meet with one of the top members of not the political conservative class, but the RNC itself. And I said, fine, I'll meet with you. We had lunch very close to my studio here and I he asked me my advice as to what should happen now. Now that allegedly Biden won. And I said, if you guys want to be taken seriously by America, by at least 74 million Americans, if the Republicans want to be seen as serious, there's only two issues you must prioritize right now. One of them is election integrity. We've got to get serious on making it impossible or hard to steal elections even in cities like Philadelphia and Chicago. The second thing I said is big tech. You've got to be as serious as a heart attack on stopping the censorship of any American. Will you talk to us about what you're seeing from your colleagues? Does the GLP get it? Do we have a plan when it comes to big tech congressman? Yeah. Yeah. The first thing is, take away their liability protection. At a minimum, we've got to get rid of the section two 30. Take away this immunity, this liability protection that they've enjoyed. They're making editorial decisions. They're sensitive and conservative. I always always tell the story that this was a couple of summers back. I guess we'll come back in 2018. But Matt Gates gives me a call, and he says, Jim, Twitter is shadow banning us. And I'm like, I didn't know which out of any man. I said, well, that sounds terrible. Now, what is he explained to me? Turned out it was. They were in fact a shadow banning Gates represented Meadows representative Nunes and myself. So you got 435 members of Congress, got a hundred senators 535, only four. Only four were being shadow banned by Twitter. And it happened to be right in the middle of the whole Trump Russia investigation when we were pushing back on all the BS coming from the Justice Department. So this becomes a news and Twitter sends out a statement that says well, it was just a glitch in our algorithm. And I'm like, glitching your algorithm, what did you put in the algorithm the names Gates Meadows known as Jordan? Give me a break. So you're exactly right. So that's step one. Step two is we actually need to get that. There are some antitrust cases happening. We need to get those to the Supreme Court on an expedited fashion, so that we can get an answer. It sure seems like justice Thomas wants to look at this. Are these companies so big and so powerful that we need to break them up? Do we need to reform our antitrust? How do we have to do it? So we think that is that's the second avenue that we have to do. And then third, we need to look at, I think, regular Americans having a private right of action against these companies, the ability to sue when they censor you when they take down your content, when they throttle back your ability to reach people via social media. So I think those are the three things that we're trying to look at, but certainly to start its dissection two 30, that needs to happen

Sebastian and Hans Von Spakovsky Discuss Old School Ballot Fraud
"So let's look specifically hands. At what happened last year. And I'm not a former election commissioner. I'm not a lawyer, you served in the DOJ correct. There's a lot of so here's my layman's take and you tell me if it resonates. Conservatives are concerned. Justifiably aged because the incumbent president received more votes than any other incumbent president in history. And in four battleground states, the vote count was halted, and then the results reversed when the vote count was started again. So at least there are questions in four battleground states. For all the theories that have been developed since then, there are various baskets of theories. Some, rather ones, such as data farms in Germany, Venezuela, dominion, voting machines, memory sticks, algorithms, Wi-Fi access to electronic systems. My argument is a very simple one. If you know that the vote reversal occurred in places like Philadelphia in Atlanta, these are places that have, in some cases, Chicago, decades long history of fraught elections. And old school fraud is perhaps where we should start. The idea that ballot stuffing, filling out election ballots for people who aren't actually the person on the ballot. Does it make sense if you're looking to address these issues to follow the kiss principle and to stay with the keep it simple and start with that which we know, I mean, it's a joke, Philadelphia Chicago. These are box of jokes for decades. Before we get to these ideas of computers and algorithms, we have a lot of work to do with just very prosaic, do we not? Yeah, no, no, you've analyzed it exactly right. If you want to look at problems, the elections, you look at the ways elections have been stolen in the past. Right. And for those who think that doesn't still happen. I mean, look, you mentioned ballot stuffing, right? Okay, just a couple of weeks ago. And this didn't get this got almost no media attention. It was the media that is like covering this. Just a couple of weeks ago, a former election official in Philadelphia, who was actually a staffer for a member of the city council and who was responsible for running at least three polling places in Philly. She was indicted by the acting U.S. attorney for stuffing ballot boxes in her three precincts with bogus votes. It's an old school fraud. Yes, and for those who think that was isolated, no, last year in May also in Philadelphia, another election official was charged with exactly the same

'Rigged' Author Mollie Hemingway Tells Us What to Expect From Her Latest Book
"The book we're talking to Molly Hemingway author of rigged How the media big tech in our Democrats seized our elections What can we expect in the book Things will learn in there because I think we're all suspicious Molly and it's the most American thing we can do is to ask questions I mean we had an unprecedented at least in modern times pandemic and election with millions of mail in ballots with counties that had very little experience with mass mail in ballots Florida has a lot of experience with that Therefore their election went off pretty well So what can we expect to find in the book Because a lot of people are still really concerned about this given 2022 being right around the corner So I tell a lot of stories detailed substantiated stories mostly focusing on Georgia Wisconsin and Pennsylvania But at heart it really deals with two big issues And the first one which kind of blew me away was the role that Mark Elias played in corrupting our elections I had been following Marc Elias because he was the guy who created the Russia collusion hoax in 2016 He was Hillary Clinton's general counsel He's the one who paid the people to make up the Russia story So I'd already been calling him I couldn't believe what a big role he played in corrupting our 2020 elections by enacting hundreds of changes of important election integrity laws flooding the zone with the mail in ballots We had such a more than threefold increase in the number of mail in ballots And it was just like you said done very sloppily And then the other thing was that I had been led to believe that when Mark Zuckerberg put $419 million of his money into the election system that this was like bipartisan help for COVID relief It wasn't That was a lie It was an overtaking of governmental election offices which are supposed to be preserved from partisan politics to run the democratic get out the vote operation and they focused on blue cities and counties in swing states Philadelphia to turn Pennsylvania and the cities in Wisconsin to turn Wisconsin Atlanta to turn Georgia and it was plotted out very savvy completely wrong I mean they just brought in an army of left wingers to run democratic operations in inside our governmental election offices And it was really effective

"philadelphia" Discussed on The Ezra Klein Show
"Position was now. What's happening right now. Is that as the city continues to do this. The city is losing money. There was incentivisation of getting juvenile's back into juvenile custody. That was incentivized by federal grants. Federal money coming through cities not getting that money because they continue to hold a relatively small number of juveniles in adult custody so it is sadly something that is beyond our control. But it's something. It's an area in which we continue to advocate for improvement. You have this long career. A civil rights attorney in the city can tell us a little bit especially for those listeners who are unfamiliar with you. What kind of pass did you come from in. Why did you i guess. An manner speaking switch sides. Oh i never switched sides but i'm happy to answer your question so my legal career was primarily doing criminal defense work. I came out of law school. And when i came out i applied both to prosecutors offices and to public defenders offices. This is nineteen seven Did a lot of interviews had offers from both sides but ultimately at that time in that culture i was just much more comfortable with the public. Defenders seem to share my values and seem to have a sense of humor is much more comfortable in so i became a public defender in philadelphia for three years in the county system tried a lot of cases and then i became a federal public defender doing nothing but federal cases for broke people and then i set up my own office About mayor good appointed me to be on a commission to investigate what was effectively a police riot against hiv aids activists. I ended up as a third year. Attorney on this blue ribbon panel. Did this investigation of this particular incident. And i realized during that process that while i loved you know criminal offense that i wanted to be able to do civil rights cases as well Because i had such a deep affection for protesters and activists and the important work that they do and philly was a place where they just kept getting arrested for no good reason and prosecuted so the next twenty five years of my career was spent with a combination criminal defense work at every level. We're talking underage drinking. we're talking triple murders. I came to the end of that thirty or cycle watching another. Da's race that was gearing up and it was the usual suspects who are running. They were not serious about reform they were using a lot of the old language And to some extent could take him. I watched this slow motion car. Crashing courtrooms thirty years. And i was in court as i was a trial or so. I was very busy in court house in court for five days a week. A wasn't just seeing what happened. In my cases..

"philadelphia" Discussed on American Revolution Podcast
"Saw them differently. These were collaborators. Who were danger to the revolution. The radicals knew that the british leadership counted on most colonists behaving in this way. The british army would assert control and these folks would just go along allowing london to exploit the colonies as long as the colonies. Got hold onto a few crumbs. This was the attitude that allowed tyrany to succeed. Therefore the radicals wanted punishment for these folks who did not resist. British rule and poop put themselves before the good of the country and some revolutions disorder purifying force leads to a massive bloodletting. I'm thinking of the french revolution's reign of terror or the russian revolutions communist purges. It never went that far in america. We saw a few collaborators made examples and hanged which i discussed today but we did not see hundreds or thousands of collaborators being sent to the gallows the moderates largely won that fight and kept things mostly as they had been before the british occupation for many years. Though no one was certain things were going to stay that way. Both revolutionary factions jockeyed for control and. It was against that backdrop. That general benedict arnold served as military governor. Ed became a target of the radicals. They couldn't attack him for being a moderate but they could attack him for corruption and profiteering from his position. And i'll get into that more in upcoming episode if you wanna learn more about the divisions between radical and moderate revolutionaries. my book recommendation. This week is tom. Paine and revolutionary. America by eric fellner. This is not a traditional biography. It looks at thomas paine but mostly in the context of the radical politics of philadelphia during the american revolution. It's an interesting look at the radical side of the revolution. The author eric owner is a former history professor from columbia university. He retired a couple years ago. He's written dozens of books on various topics in.

Warehouses deployed guards to prevent looting. They locked down the city to prevent any goods from entering or leaving philadelphia until there could be an accounting general. Arnold set up his headquarters at the penn mansion where general how had kept his headquarters for the prior nine months. Arnold spent considerable money refurbishing the mansion and hiring a domestic staff to run it despite the condition of independence hall which had been used as a prison as a hospital and even toilet during the occupation. The continental congress voted to adjourn. Its session in york on june twenty seventh and resume work in philadelphia the following week although congress had planned to resume on july second. They didn't get a quorum to do business until july seventh. Although general arnold took control of the city with a few hundred soldiers the bulk of the continental army did not waste any time with any sort of grand entrance back into philadelphia instead.

"Cosmo gordon a british regular woke up in philadelphia. After a night of heavy drinking. He quickly discovered that the city had been completely abandoned is unit along with the rest of the army was marching away in new jersey. The final british ships in the river had already set sail and were away from port. The product officer quickly grabbed his things and rush down to the port there. He found a friendly boatman who he paid to take him across the river. As far as we know. Gordon was the last officer to leave philadelphia around eleven. Am admiral how who was already aboard his flagship. The eagle in the middle of the delaware river weighed anchor and sailed away that same morning. A militia scout aimed george roberts out valley forge to report that the british had abandoned philadelphia about the same time. That colonel gordon was making his escape across the delaware river to new jersey. Washington received roberts's report another group of delaware militia on horseback had entered the city that morning and had captured about thirty enemy soldiers. Who had not left in time. Washington dispatched major general benedict arnold with a brigade of about four hundred soldiers to take control of the city. Arnold you may recall was still recovering from his leg wound at saratoga when he turned up at valley forge about a month earlier. Ready to return to duty. Still not really ready. For combat washington designated arnold to serve as the military commander of philadelphia following the british evacuation. Riding with arnold into philadelphia was washington's aide to camp colonel. Tench tilghman who had been a philadelphia before the war as well as washington's former aide to camp joseph reed who had been a philadelphia lawyer before the war at that time read was a delegate to the continental congress continental general henry knox and philadelphia militia. General john cadwalader also road with the first occupying force to enter the city. The comments of everyone who was that it was a complete and utter mess piles of garbage lay everywhere in the streets in public buildings in private homes occupying troops and others had used houses public buildings and even independence hall as a place to relieve themselves. The smell of human feces and urine was everywhere. Some occupying soldiers had he been taken the winter to fill entire basements with their own human waste. Many churches had their gravestones knocked down. So that churchyards could be turned into horse riding areas. Church pews at a great deal. Other furniture had been used for firewood. Almost no wooden fences had survived the occupation. In some cases entire houses had been dismantled and burned for firewood. Even some of the better houses have been looted. Major john who had occupied. Benjamin franklin's house left with a full length portrait of the founder and also with his music and scientific equipment and most of his library. Andre blamed franklin for bringing france into the war and forgetting general how recalled he defended his looting as a form of payback against his enemy. As i said the damage to the city overall was severe and it would take months to clean up and repair to make philadelphia functional again aside from assuming former control of philadelphia. The purpose sending arnold and other key officers was to take control of any supplies that the british had left behind that the continental army needed the following day. Arnold issued proclamations of martial law and ordered all citizens to provide an inventory of any items held in the city. The continental congress still out in york had passed resolutions ordering the army to put up an embargo on all trade and secure all valuables within.

"Lou thank you for joining the american revolution today. Episode one eighty-seven the evacuation of philadelphia. As i've discussed over multiple episodes general william house major initiative for seventeen seventy seven was the capture of philadelphia. As was his usual practice. How white about the process slowly and methodically leaving new york in july then he sailed down to the chesapeake and march north to philadelphia fighting several battles before finally entering the city. Two and a half months later in late september he then had to spend even more time defending the city against tax and clearing out two fences along the delaware river to allow the navy to link up with the city and bring in supplies. Philadelphia was as close as the patriots had to a national capital. It was the largest city in the colonies and the seat of the continental congress. Its capture seemed to evoke only a collective yawn. On both sides of the atlantic congress simply moved to york pennsylvania and continued its work. The continental army continued. Its efforts to keep the british pinned down in the city. More importantly house focus on philadelphia divided british forces and this allowed the continental northern army to capture general burgoyne army at saratoga. The capture that army of course was a major setback to the british war effort and also encourage france to enter the war which completely changed events They discussed in more detail last week. The entry of france into the war completely did plans of war strategists in london instead of simply focusing on putting down the rebellion britain suddenly had to defend colonies all over the world as well as a potential invasion of the british isles itself. That is why. The carlisle commissioned that. I discussed last week pretty much wanted to wrap up the war. At this point under whatever terms they had to shortly after capturing philadelphia general how had submitted his resignation to london. He'd been frustrated for over a year that the ministry would not provide them with sufficient troops to launch multiple campaigns and capture larger areas of the continent without such reinforcements general. Hal thought the whole strategy was unwinnable and he wanted out. It's not clear if general how really wanted to resign or whether he thought his offer might wake up some folks at london to the need for a substantial increase in soldiers to take and hold north america but shortly after his resignation request arrived in london. News of saratoga also reached the ministry. The king told prime minister lord north that someone had to go as a result either. How or secretary of state or germain firing germain might have brought down the whole government leading to new elections so it to accept how's resignation and recalled him to london. North had tried to replace. General how i asking general jeffrey amherst to take the north american command. As you may recall general amherst had served as commander during the french and war amherst however wanted an army of seventy five thousand in north america before he would agree to the command. That was more than double the number of troops in north america. At the time the ministry was going to pay for an army of that size for general how and it wasn't going to do so for general amherst either so instead the king promoted amherst to full general what we would today call a four star general and gave him a title of commander in chief of forces a position that had been vacant for nearly twenty years and which gave general amherst a seat in.

"Many of them were actually nazi war criminals and and really. It's interesting to me that if we brought those guys over Surprised the israelis didn't come knocking for those guys at some point if they were notorious death. Camp guys didn't the jewish state hunt. Those guys relentlessly for years. Now thanks how you kill them and rightly so they would just show up and kill them. That's nothing wrong with that. Man world's a better place you agreed anyway They're in the tail of the philadelphia. Experiment i i was a little disappointed. I was something there was a lot more corroborating evidence on this little weight. It does seem a little weak to me although really cool. I don't doubt that the experiments took place i. I kind of doubting the the time travel and the the giant ship moving two hundred miles watching hundred miles really weird. There was a a ship that was docked alongside the eldridge at least nineteen forty-three. Call the ingram. That's how you say. Uss angstrom there was a veteran who served on board of that and he said that he suggested that the boat might have traveled from philly to norfolk in a single day by away. The chesapeake and delaware canal where merchant ships couldn't use that only naval vessels that channels kept quiet german submarines and really just tore that place apart along the east coast in this operation. Called operation. drumbeat and military ships couldn't protect themselves so they decided to use these canals to move secretly from philly to norfolk so he was saying. It's possible that a ship could have taken this channel that no one knew about up and back in the time that they think that the ship disappeared in reappeared. There take that for what you want. But that's one explanation that it really interesting to happen. Well something happened. But but i don't know that it was time travel unfortunately maybe consigned you too bad crash. That does for me too bad so sad. Do you have anything else you wanted to add. Scott is interesting. The whole thing about most conspiracies is that There's by definition not a lot of corroborating evidence. So you know a it makes it harder to believe if there's not but that doesn't mean it didn't happen and you know things can be falsified. I i certainly believe that You know there. There's lots of secrets. And and i think that the top secret stuff that we have would blow anybody's mind. I just believe hand. I don't know anybody who doesn't believe that You know the government has top secret. Stuff your path everybody. I think pretty much believes that. They don't know what it is so you know. How long have we had it. And how well they keep kept it secret. Where is it in all of this that we don't know we don't know so it's interesting to talk about stuff like this. If there's people that that said. I certainly think that they deserve to be heard whether or not they're believed maybe a different story but i definitely think people deserve to be heard in certainly. Don't buy the explanation that just because somebody's in an insane asylum that they're actually insane. You know maybe maybe they are. Maybe they're making stuff up in their heads but I wouldn't be so quick to to pass that judgment on on some of these Interesting stories verna. Humans people everything or too easy to manipulate what the truth is way too easy. That's that's my not. Write it down. i.

"Keep other countries from doing it so if we if we go if we drop down to that level you know this is not quite to that level. Bring not season right. We're gonna retire in. He's from working in the us. Well you know I'm kind of torn about that. I i think Tough times make strange bedfellows. And and you got to get ahead in the space race and and national security is at stake. We did end up at the top of the pile and my last probably a lot more comfortable because of it so I don't really have any regrets for those decisions. That were made Personally i feel like i better the country and it was. It was what we needed to do for national defense in for the space program has influenced so much of our military so much of our economy but the that space race was gigantic for us There's so many things that have come out that. Have that have gone our way. Because of because of what we've done with nasa and things like that and with the military for that matter we kind of call the shots and were the most powerful on the block still which does make it makes for us. But how you get there. I guess you have to kind of way out you know. Hey yeah i. I mean that that's important it's Because if you if you don't wait out then all of a sudden it's kind of the end justifies the means in all cases not all only some any who gets to decide exactly a who who gets to decide that so you know. We're seeing that right now. Play out In in the the censorship debates right you know. Some things are worthy of censorship and others are not. Well where's the line and who gets to decide and if you don't like you don't like the decision who gets to appeal it so now you've because you've crossed the line and given them the power to do it once now. They're almost expected. You've set a precedent almost expected to do it and now somebody makes that that decision right and so yeah you start you. Start jacking with f. ethics. Because you feel like there's a good reason to do it and the next thing you know. I mean well and now we set a precedent and now we gotta now we gotta do it here and there and i think the what was that operation paper clip is that correct out. I think in operation clip there was some decent justification in that the russians were picking up many scientists as they could and if we didn't take them they would And and. I think that that really took the scales for a lot of people Because if the russians got him There was a serious race coming and and it would have been might have been them and not us you know i just have a hard time justifying that where those guys retire in the us while they killed thousands and thousands of people in oral as what not. All of those guys were were death camps nazis. A lot of them were coerced into the party. Because of what they knew and even i was i was reading Einstein pudong ski. And rosen. I think was the book about the lives of those three scientists and at the time. A lot of them were coerced into the party. Just because that's where they were at at the time that's where they lived over in europe and you're the part of the party or you can go to a camp dire. You know or worse. They just took the job tilmann and try to do it. I don't know that any of them were actually a high enough in echelons to to make a call on whether somebody lived or died in a death camp or how many are are any of them. Had a hand in any of that so many people that were part of the nazi party did not have a hand in that according to documentaries though on national geographic. I mean there wasn't a ton of them but there was quite a few a began in killing a lot of the jews. There were there. Were a few that were fairly notorious killers. Certainly not all of them. Yeah tough call. And which ones at the time like. How do you know like you. Just make the best call you again. But i'm i'm sure it would have been better if we descend all vicious killers russia. Those guys all got what they deserve for. Sure not a great place to live during the cold war. No but. But i don't know i mean we brought over a ton of them. I don't know how.

"Radar. Invisible wasn't wasn't part of their plan. They were looking for undersea mines. And things like that which also you can use electro-magnetic fields for detecting mines and torpedoes and bombs in the water and things like that. And that's what. They claim they were doing. The story itself Was always so interesting to me as a kid. And of course hollywood there's beautiful women that movie and tons of action and really cool often as a kid. I always believed like i was just believed. That was a real thing and it was really a none of tesla's notes were found it. All went away. didn't even now they. They found some of them. I think that a lot of them. Sit in. There's a tesla museum over in. Where was he from. Czechoslovakia were Where was he from. I can't. I can't remember right now. Some eastern european country and They they have his His notes but not all of them government kicking soon as he died and and gutted. His office took everything they could try. They used some really weird never used before authorization to do. It has something like Some some agency. That really didn't have the authority to do what they were doing did it. And then they said so yeah they. They said that they took all the paperwork. And the they just put it in a bunch of barrels and left it in the basement and you know beth never happen with it but of course you know baloney guy that had a torn over that. Yeah yeah you gotta know it. Had the guy had what. How many hundred hundred and fifteen patents. Something like that crazy amount amount of patents. And you're not gonna have that amount of of knowledge and the kind of claims that he made and then have everybody just like yeah. Whatever we don't care let's take all of the documents but we're not even gonna look at them nothing to see here right. One of the greatest minds of time. I would want those knots and probably To be honest with you they were probably smart to get those knots before other governments. Got those nuts. If there was something amazing american they probably was one other relationship thing that i think. Thank you for that from croatia. Another thing that i thought was interesting about the whole the whole experiment so the ship supposedly disappeared it. It traveled two hundred miles away. It sat for some time in view of people aboard the ss andrew. I if i think is how i is how they pronounced and then it vanished again and then reappeared in philadelphia where it came from a. I haven't heard anything about those sailors. I haven't heard about an ear views or anything like that and also they say that the ship lost ten minutes get traveled backwards in time ten minutes which is kind of interesting too. I don't know how you would know that. Except that i'm sure they had instruments on board. And maybe if you're wearing a wristwatch or something. I wonder whatever happened to that ship. And and if if you could go back and find. Dna fused into the decca that ship. It's probably it's probably a marine By now but but it would be interesting to see what it maybe would i. I don't know how you get rid of that. Except big holes out right melted. Yeah yeah can you imagine the task of of getting getting that task. If you were signed to clean up. Who would do that. He's fat that's just thing about that. It's a bad smell would get me just saying but anyway i think it opens up a lot of interesting conversations I think there's a tons of of evidence to the contrary but you know there's always that chance and when it comes to government projects anything that the government does that that maybe has some fruit on that could be used for defense or or for wartime. And they're all over dude. We'll take great pains to hide and and reproduce those experiments in trying to get whatever they can cause you know if we don't do it. Somebody else will guesses the thinking. And i don't know if that's a good way to think or not but but but i think it's interesting not the first time americans of that because i mean we already talked about how we recruited the nazis for own space program.

"How you can Manipulate and change like muddle through frequency and vibration in magnetic fields. Super interesting stuff. There's gonna youtube that claims that he can make a steel levitated through frequency and vibration and that he can. He can create an anti gravity fields. And he's he's been investigated. A lotta people say is a hoax. I would think if that was true the government would be all over him and wanna talk to him unless they ve already done it twenty years ago and maybe not quite the right path or seventy years ago or seventy years ago you gotta think if they if they actually did that seventy plus years ago what what are they doing now writing and why do we need space for us. There's so many things that tie into this. Like i think dimensional we open gates long long ago that we can come and go through but david copperfield does this every day. It's like second nature to him. He's not that cold dude. I don't think anyway. I was on stage with that guy. It was pretty awesome copperfield over trade on an we saw. What was that guy. We saw in vegas angel. Chris angel angel. I thought he was pretty good. I thought it was good to go gas. Tv show was kinda stupid. you know that. Charlie's angels or chris angels. Charlie's angels maven a stupid tv show but it was pretty hot to watch. You gotta give them that it's true what kidneys regional. What kid in. The seventies didn't just drool all over faira fawcett and jaclyn smith edibles verify in action. How i was totally on jacqueline. She's gorgeous yeah shaneco just willa. Well okay you know. Everybody's got their time. Sure tesla ostensibly back in what like the late. Eighteen hundreds early nineteen hundreds would would do these little la. Traveling road shows trying to show people that He was smart and that He was worthy of being invested in and he would play with electricity and and frequencies one of the things that he reportedly would do. Was he turn his oscillating machines on and Carry like a piece of rebar in his hand and while he was holding it just in his hand steady the oscillating machine was set to whatever the resonant frequency of of iron was and slowly after about two minutes. The bar the piece of rebar which start to kind of wobble and vibrate until it got almost like it was a piece of rope and then it would snap into and fall to the ground and so this was like in front of you know hundreds of people he did this. This was witnessed by a lot of people and he he Had this awesome later machine and put it in his apartment in his new york apartment and set it to various frequencies and just make no sense of what happened when it was at certain frequencies and so he would watch you know at certain frequency. The chair might start bouncing around the room and another frequency You know the the toaster might start bouncing around or whatever so he was just kinda like okay. This is kind of interesting and you take notes and and what have you will. one time. he He had it on and I guess in his new york apartment you know in the older apartments they have these The support beams. That would kind of go through the middle. You're you're rumor. Whatever and then much do with architecture now because it's invasive back then you'd would see these support beams maybe in the right in the middle of your living room and apparently he had his machine right up next to one of the support. Beams that went down directly into the earth and while he was experimenting with these resonant frequencies apparently He caused an earthquake that was felt seven blocks away and they were trying to figure out what this was. It wasn't a normal earthquake and somebody was like damn tesla and so they sent the cops after him and and he finally realized that what was causing. This earthquake was him and so he's like. Oh my god. What do i do what i do. He took a sledgehammer and destroyed his oscillating machine right before the cops got their hand and knocked on the door and he's like oh yes. Sorry guys Good good to see ya. And now you've just missed a my experiment today but come on back tomorrow and all have another one for you have a nice day in so if a guy could do something like that and he claims that he can he can make ship disappear. Can't maybe can't and what's interesting to me as you think about the things that tie into that well if if back then they could come up with a resonant frequency to make something gigantic like that disappear. What what could you do. If you had the knowledge and some supercomputers and you could calculate the resonant frequency for anything a duck about a person a whatever you could you could send them wherever you wanted to send it. Goes both ways. I mean you. Could you could postulate on and really Daydream about it. And there's all kinds of amazing things That you can think of. But it's hard to find anybody corroborate it. The the there was a reunion of navy vets who sailed aboard the eldredge in ninety nine hundred ninety nine. They all claim that the ship had never made port in philadelphia. The whole time they run it and a lot of these guys were serving Further evidence shows that the log of the uss eldredge put them far far away from from philadelphia on the date in question or anywhere near the dating question. And it's it's all available on microfilm. Now that's easy enough to fake of course but you get all those old guys together talking. You think somebody might be looking. I might have. I might have been there. But all of them say they weren't now that doesn't mean The the navy's not capable of putting a different name on a different ship and and doing experiments with it should they are but but the real uss eldredge. Those guys say that they weren't there so fair enough. The navy claims that they were doing a lot of experiments back then in nineteen forty-three and they were trying to map the seafloor which sounds like absolute bullshit.

"Had actually gone crazy from it. Which which would make sense it. Would it would make sense if you underwent something like that and and the things that reportedly happened actually did happen. Like if you're on a ship ship disappeared. You ended up two hundred miles away and when you ended up back where you were. You saw some of your crew mates With their torso fused into team. Would that not mess with your mind. I mean it probably would but some of these guys some pretty serious combat in the pacific some guests been around a long time and it might mess with your mind or the the the experiment might just like drive people. Mad the rearrange brain. Who knows i was just gonna say maybe maybe that did. Have you know with the thing. We've talked about a few weeks ago. Where In kennedy's administration the guy basically was trying to rat out the bad guys and so they throw them in an insane asylum ryan. They said yeah. Nobody's gonna listen to you here. You're crazy like everybody else. And so maybe that's how you keep a bunch of people quiet. Is you either threaten them with. Hey you saw what happened to frank over here You want it to happen to you and your family than talk or you know throwing insane asylum and then if they do talk who listens nobody. It's interesting that the story's been told and retold over and over again it. It got real legs in nineteen seventy nine Charles berlitz wrote a book He had written a book about The bermuda triangle and then he published a book The philadelphia experiment project in disability. Which was supposed to be a factual account of everything that happened. Arctic robbery those things But there's been many times authors have retold the story you know the other thing that strikes me as and it doesn't seem to be without any merit at all if you had a bunch of people on board a ship and something like that happened. I would think that most of those guys would probably end up with really cushy jobs Military in you know in. We're gonna we're gonna re up your your top secret clearance and we're gonna put you on some cool projects we're gonna pay you fat salary and you're gonna sign this nondisclosure. Keep your mouth shut will let you know when we're done with you kind of thing. I think a lotta people go that route. In fact i know personally several route so so there's that and then every once in a while you get somebody that kinda goes off the ranch. Maybe they end up in an insane asylum or disappeared I think it's a lot easier to just be like you know stalin's no dummy noman no problem right and they would just disappear. Them and accidents happen. Maybe the brakes on your car. Whatever you know it's not. I don't think it's beyond our government to do something like that and i certainly don't think gets technologically beyond our government. I think they have a lot more tricks up their sleeves than they than they will ever let on. That will know you until it had twenty or thirty year old technology. And i you know it goes along with. I've always said. I think a lot of the things we see that are that are people think are space. Aliens are in my opinion dimensional beings the travel from from different dimensions into this one. And i think it might be possible that they had started to open that door and really once they did that. Experiment try to become radar invisible. Maybe they realized what they have and they decided to scale down. Put it someplace dark and work on it in private instead of on the open. Seas with one hundred sailors definitely intrigued by by the philadelphia experiment. Because because tesla and he he had ostensibly just like a year or two before. This happened before supposedly happened. He had come up with I think unified field theories when it's called that's exactly what it's called and And he he basically said you can make it happen. I can make a ship disappear and again. According to the rumored story that i heard which have no corroborating evidence for is that he said but but there can be no people on board. Do not try to do this with people on board and because the vibration vibrational frequencies of metal very different than the vibrational frequencies of human and he said if you try this it will be disastrous. And then tesla met with an early death and then. The government seized his his records. And somebody ostensibly who had knowledge of tesla in his work came in and said. But i can do it. I can do it and this is where this is where the disaster occurred. Because he said yeah. I believe that it can happen and it could happen. But then they didn't do what tesla said to avoid and that was met with disaster. Now again no corroborating evidence on any of this other than just You know reports from reports and But it makes sense. It doesn't surprise me. I wouldn't be surprised that all to find out the that had actually happened. And and as we all know tusla man he is a next level genius you know. Right is his grasp of things as far beyond nearly everyone except maybe albert einstein. Some will tesla tesla thought. Einstein was an idiot does a different version of the story. The proposes researchers were preparing a magnetic and gravitational measurements of the seafloor to detect anomalies supposedly based on einstein's attempts to understand gravity in in that version There's also a secret experiments in nazi germany to finance gravity. A bunch of different things interrelate with with the the whole tale of the philadelphia experiment. But but it all kinda kinda falls back on really on tusla's the unified field theory..

"To my left is met a welcome mat. Thank you brian. I'm very excited to be part of this. One tonight running win over the philadelphia experiment. Some interesting things to talk about. I know as a kid. I was fascinated by the philadelphia experience. I'm sure many of you are too and Weighing in on this from the great state of texas to my left of scott. Welcome scott thank you matt. I too excited about this. As i cut my. I cut my teeth on stuff like this Used to talk with some conspiracy minded folks when as as early as elementary school who told me about the philadelphia experiment and many other things that nikola tesla was involved in. And so this It's an interesting thing. I'm interested to hear matt take the lead tonight and tell us what what he is found Okay this episode. We're going to be talking about the philadelphia experiment. Matt is going to be our leader on this topic. Should be pretty interesting so take it away matt. Thank you for your much sought tonight the philadelphia experiment. I first exposure to the philadelphia experiment. was a movie in nineteen eighty. Four it came out. I don't know if you Every boy saw that movie. I thought it was awesome. I got it on vhs. When i watched it many times at my house during sleep overs and stuff like that. I thought it was pretty cool. Not not seen it but apparently was remade in two thousand twelve as well. I did not see that I just saw the the original hollywood version. Which was you know as a child was super interesting and a little bit terrifying. And i was always interested in the philadelphia experiment. I'm a little. I'm a little disappointed. With what i found to be honest. I was hoping to find. More real dark conspiracies in this one. And and i i i didn't really Find what i was looking for. But but i do have a lot of interesting information. The philadelphia experiment allegedly conducted in october of nineteen forty-three the uss eldredge which is a a destroyer escort in it. It was the whole ship was wired up and what they were trying to do. allegedly was to make it invisible to radar is my understanding and they electrified. In the movie they electrify the ship in it disappears and shows up in new york But everything that i can find on this one says the the the real tale of of the philadelphia experiment as we know it. Sort of came out in in the mid fifties and it came out it coincided with the release of a couple of sci-fi books which kind of takes away from its credibility a little bit. There were several people that said they were witness to the philadelphia experiment. And there are. I guess some vets that have passed away. Now i saw on the history channel Many years ago interviews with some guys that said they were part of the philadelphia experiment. The crazy thing about the stories about it are the. The ship was reported to have disappeared from radar and then literally disappeared. I don't think that's beyond like tesla was pretty awesome. Making a whole ship disappear. That'd be pretty incredible. The other part of it is when when it reappeared It was many many many miles away and reportedly some of the sailors were fused into the bulkheads in other words. Everything didn't stay the way. It was The integrity ship was reported to have been compromised in some way and where people like Re materialized halfway between decks and had steel decking going through their bodies and and some of them through bulkheads and things like that which is really creepy. Yes you think it terrifying right. But here's the thing that gets me. And i've seen i've seen videos on youtube of people. Making steel blocks melt and move and dance with sound waves and electromagnetic current You can totally take ice cold block steal and make it change ship using electromagnetic fields and sound waves. You know. I mean there may be something to the other thing is There was letters that were sent to the department of the navy. There was a book that appeared in nineteen fifty. Five a ufo. Here's the name of that. Book i just had the case for the ufo. A copy of that book. was sent to the department of the navy with the bunch of annotations in inside notes written through the whole book and it appears to have been written by three different people and they're not identified in the book but these three people supposedly according to the notes were witness to the philadelphia experiment and they talk about different things in the book as it relates to the philadelphia experiment. A lot of research was done An investigation and nothing really came of that it was thought to be maybe a publicity stunt or hoax It would be hard to take ship a couple of hundred miles away and do all the things that they did and not have anybody on that ship. talk about. It was crude when they did that. There were many sailors onboard. You would think if you saw something that crazy. You'd have more than one person. Come forward. I i had heard now. I have no documentation for this. So full disclosure with that but From from the individual. Who told me about this. Initially he. He had indicated that many of the men who were part of that.

"Today there are only few memorial stones that serve as a reminder to the thousands of soldiers buried in mass graves beneath that park. Perhaps one reason the death rate was not hire was that a number of civilians took an active effort to bring food and supplies to the prison. There is an contemporary newspaper. Article of a person identified only as a quote free negro woman who used to her hard earned dollars as a laundries to buy ingredients to make a pot of broth and buy some bread which she distributed to the prisoners. Another woman whose name we actually know was elizabeth cream ferguson. Who was married to a british officer. She also led efforts to provide for the prisoners. Ferguson was a philadelphia native and she remained in the city after the british army left. When the americans recaptured philadelphia ferguson would face charges of treason and would have her property confiscated however numerous witnesses that attested to her support of the prisoners allowed her to recover her confiscated property eventually another reason. That more prisoners did not die. Was that. The americans had agents on hand for the prisoners in philadelphia. Almost right away. Thomas franklin quaker and no relation to benjamin served as ineffective advocate for the prisoners during the british occupation. A final explanation for why more did not die in philadelphia was that the british were only in the city for less than a year sadly for the prisoners. Most of them were shipped to new york when the british land only to die in new york prisons or prison ships. As i said many captured officers were held prisoner in state house. What we today call independence hall. Although conditions there were perhaps a little better than in jail men there were still crowded. Left underfed and without basic needs the british. Also use the hall for wounded americans who were left there with minimum medical treatment. The british were reluctant to grant parole to most captured officers. Because they were so close to american lines. Escape was a great temptation at one point. The army had to hire women to search females leaving the city. It seems that some americans were attempting to escape from philadelphia. Dressed in women's clothes guards were given orders to shoot to kill anyone attempting to escape. A one officer was released after a local quaker. John roberts put up a one hundred pound bond to guarantee his good behavior. When that officer fled the city. Roberts was forced to pay that bond. After the british left. The city roberts was unable to recover his money because the radicals had him executed for treason. The british would remain in philadelphia until june. Seventeen seventy eight. And i'll discuss that departure in a future. Next week though i wanna talk about a group of loyalist outlaws known as the doan gang and also a skirmish with the philadelphia militia. It took place in may known as the battle of crooked billet..
