"Logistical and monetary support. But Lennon is not a German agent. It is, however, somewhat of a creative puzzle to imagine how exactly Lennon could have behaved differently if he was a German agent. Because after returning to Russia, he spent every waking moment attacking the legitimacy of the provisional government, denouncing the war and fomenting an atmosphere of chaos. All of this culminated with an arm seizure of power with their very first decree being a call for the Russian army to stop fighting the Germans. I mean, back in Berlin, the decision to put Lenin on a train in March 1917 was looking like the single best decision they had made since the war began. To help paper over this German agent narrative, Lenin issued a call for a general piece. So that when the allies inevitably rejected this call, he could move to direct negotiations with the Central Powers without making it look like he was just a puppet dancing for its masters. And the Russians never failed to mention that the other powers were always welcome to join the peace talks at any time. But the allied powers were not biting. And as much as Berlin and Vienna thrilled at the events of October, Paris and London were aghast. Their overriding policy towards Russia was to keep Russia in the war. It was French foreign policy going all the way back to the Franco Russian alliance of 1894 that French national security depended on keeping a massive Russian army pinning down Germany's east Flank. You might remember that when Nicholas and Alexandra appeared personally responsible for Russian wartime.

Fresh update on "russia" discussed on Recorded Future - Inside Threat Intelligence for Cyber Security

"That decided that suddenly you're very important. Yeah. Well, and I mean, you've made the point on social media. I think only half jokingly, that, you know, folks should go look at the purchases of exotic automobiles in these countries. There's a pretty strong dots to connect. Right, exactly. I mean, they're not subtle with how they spend their money. Whether it's fancy cars, nice houses, whatever else that we've seen, all of the things that we see when we do these raids outside of Russia when they're in Russia, they're doing the same thing. And so there's a lot that governments who want to track them contract them. And again, I'm not saying that you send in a solution keyboard anything like that. I'm absolutely not saying that, but I'm saying, if you start producing information saying, hey, here you are. This is you, we know who you are and we're watching you. Maybe that doesn't slow some of them down. But I think for a lot of them, then, that starts to change the balance of okay, maybe this is no longer worth it. Maybe I should take the fact that Russia's not going to arrest me and just keep the millions I've made and retire. And if that's, yeah, that's not a great outcome, but if it stops the ransomware attacks, then it's then it's a good enough outcome for us. This being the recorded future podcast I'd be remiss if I didn't ask you, what part does threat intelligence play in an organization's defenses for ransomware? So one of the benefits of the sort of the big game hunting rents more attacks is that you now have multiple opportunities to stop the ransomware attacker. So you have that initial access, you have while they're moving around the network. You have the data exfiltration, and you even have like, hey, here are the things they're going to do right before they deploy the brands somewhere. So you have all of these different ways to detect them, but you need to know what to look for. And that's one of the ways that recorded future and other intelligence providers offer you is, you know, here's the cobalt strike things you should be looking for. Here the indicators for those IPs, domains, whatever that we're seeing with ransomware groups. Here are the movements. Here's how they move around the network here. The tools they use even when they're living off the land like look for these commands being wrong. So really for that threat hunting mission intelligence can be really important. And then right now, because so much data is dumped on these ransomware stores and sites. You know, I like to say that basically every ransomware attack has now become a third party attack because when they're jumping data from a victim organization, they're also dumping all of the information from the organizations that does business with and so knowing, hey, have I been caught up in one of these ransomware attacks and knowing sometimes before the victim will tell you about it can be really important. So kind of understanding that and that allowing you to prepare for that kind of, which is an unfortunate eventuality. What do you hope people take away from the book, someone who's finished reading it? What are the take homes there that you're looking for? So I think the big thing is a few things. One, you're gonna be more successful in recovering from a ransomware attack if you prepare for it. So if you know kind of, if you have an honest assessment of what your weaknesses are and are prepared for those weaknesses, even if you can't do anything for mediate them at that time, I'm reading a great book right now called the scout mindset. That talks about the scout versus the soldier mites that it's really fascinating. And I keep relating that back to preparing for ransomware attack where too many organizations are like, no, no, we're good. We have everything covered and don't want to have that honest assessment. You need to have that honest assessment ahead of time so that you can properly prepare and then when you start to recovery process, should that come along, you'll know what you need to do.

"And rush would he had a famous kind of Christmas series he would do and a famous Thanksgiving series he would do. Talk to us more about the man of that rush was just his optimism doing three hours of radio a day. I could say from personal experience, two hours is a lot. He would do three hours almost no gas collars on only one day open line Friday. Just talk to us about the man. How much prep did he put in? How much study did he do? Tell us from your inside perspective. I'd be so fascinated by that. Rush never stopped working. And this was his work ethic was was astounding. Russia would get to the studio at 8 o'clock in the morning or 8 30 ish. And prep right up until the time of the show. So three hours. Wow. Okay. But, but it didn't end there. After he left the studio, sometimes we'd be around the three of us that were there in there with him during the chinsky. Austin Agra Russia stenographer and Brian Johnson, his engineer in Florida. We have another engineer in New York, Mike ramone who's been with us for 30 years, over 30 years. And if we stayed around the studio, about 40 minutes after he left, Russia's printer would start firing off. What stories for the next day? And it could go on and on and on. He would take a break. I don't know saying he worked around the clock, but he really did work all the time. He said, he used to say show prep, life is show prep. Life is show prep. And he brought so many things of interest to the show, things that interested him. But more to the point to me was this was a man that studied this medium. He wanted to be a broadcaster at age 6. At age 6, he had a little toy that was put out. I think by remco or one of the toy companies where you can broadcast inside your house. So he had the microphone he had his toy set rigged up and would broadcast to his mother. He knew what he wanted to do from the time he was a

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

Rep. Jim Jordon Describes the Significance of Trump's 2016 Victory

"Let's talk about why you are so famous today. It's your fight for the truth, especially against Russia collusion the way that weapon was used against president Trump falsely. Let's start at the beginning what happened 5 years ago in this nation. What does the event? The election of a man who never run for political position before who'd had no relations to the swamp, what is the significant of Donald Trump's victory in 2016 congressman? Well, he ran as the outsider who was going to make America great again, and he did that. He accomplished so much. Most successful president certainly in my lifetime, maybe in the history of this great country, and he did it. So many things he said he was going to do that he actually got done, which was just amazing because he got him done in spite of every Democrat in his town against him. Everyone in the mainstream press against him. Everyone in the bureaucracy against him, and a bunch of Republicans against him and in spite of that accomplished so much. So it was that's why this town thought him so much. He came in here and really took on the swab, upset the apple cart, pick whatever metaphor you want. But he did it, and that was such a threat to the establishment to the people who think they're smarter than us regular folks who think they run this town in came a guy from the outside who said, no, I'm going to defend America first. We know we're the greatest nation in history. We're going to fight for the values and principles that make us great. And we're going to get control of our border. We're going to cut taxes. We're going to grow our country. He did it. So it was huge. And the American people were yearning for that kind of leader.

That's right. Tree equity. That's what your Republicans voted for. Now why do I connect those two? Because your Senate Republicans that voted for that infrastructure package, they've been too busy. Work in the deal. Doing the process, glad handing fellow Democrat senators while the FBI. Now has Patriot Act style tags a new why would you even negotiate with this regime? Why would you vote for any bill that they put up while this is even remotely happening and it is happening? FBI creates threat tag to track alleged harassment of educators. They're never going to stop doing this until they realize that there's a legitimate opposition party in this country. And as we've said before, the new war is not going to be won in Taiwan. It's not going to happen in Taiwan, the regime doesn't want that. It's not going to be one of sand and death in the Middle East. It's not going to be a conflict in eastern Russia.

Why Is Washington, DC Suddenly Concerned About Borders?

"Is why all of a sudden is Washington, D.C. concerned about borders. If you want to get Washington, D.C. really fired up about borders. Don't talk about the southern border. Don't talk about the border between U.S. and Mexico. No, no, no, no. The border they get really fired up about? Is the Ukrainian Russian border. Now, let me be very clear. Vladimir Putin's a thug, okay? I'm not a Putin apologist. There are some people that do that. I think it's kind of weird. I'm not really into that. He's obviously kind of an autocrat. But am I kind of like wake am I spending time at night wondering or concerned whether or not Vladimir Putin is going to expand the Russian border by a hundred miles or not? I couldn't care less. But for whatever reason, there is this new campaign through Republicans to demand U.S. troops to go to Ukraine and defend Ukraine against Russian aggression. Secretary of State Anthony blinken said that he's a concerned about reports of unusual Russian military activity near Ukraine. He added, as we've made it clear any escalator escalatory or aggressive actions would be of great concern to the United States. Why? Why would that be of great concern? Again, I'm not like a Russian. I'm not like a Russia fan. But our own border is being compromised. Our own borders being invaded. Our country is being invaded. Why am I supposed to care about Ukraine again? What does that have to do with us? How is that an existential threat to our existence? And warning to Russia blink into the Biden administration, officials know its playbook, pointing to Ukraine's escalation in 2014 under the Obama administration. Although Russia's intentions are uncertain, the presence at the Russia's elite first guard tanks, an army lens credibility concerns that Russia is planning additional incursions into Ukraine territory. Republicans urged the administration to quote immediately consider an appropriate U.S. Military presence and posture in the region and to initiate appropriate intelligence sharing activities in the U.S. and Ukraine. Why are Republicans not calling for troops to go to the southern border? Why do we want American troops to go to the Ukrainian border, which might be a good cause? Find whatever.

Author Gregg Jarrett: John Durham Knows Just How Corrupt the FBI Is

"He wrote the books on Russian collusion and the witch hunt. Welcome back to America first with Greg Jarrett. I have to return Greg to one more and more question with regards to John Durham and the recent flurry of activities. This is a man who he stayed in the shadows for most of his career. There's only two photographs of them. Whatever you see, you know, an article about Darwin's the same photograph of him scowling coming out of a courtroom. So it's a guy looks to take his job seriously, has a pretty serious reputation, and one of the things he's known for as what was it former Connecticut U.S. attorney is that he puts feds in prison. So he has put corrupt FBI special agents and supervisory special agents in prison for breaking the law. As a result, I just want to what is it Jen Psaki says circle back on why you think the indictments are going to stay at this low level of people lying to the bureau and not actually target the people inside the bureau who were the architects and the implementers of the Russia hoax and the witch hunt? Is that just a gut sense of what you witnessed in the last two years? Well, you know, as much as I sometimes rely on confidential sources and leaked information is any journalist has terms to be commended. I mean, he's remained silent. He doesn't leap, no leaks come out of his investigation. He is a serious guy. He knows how corrupt the FBI is because he's put FBI folks behind bars. You know, I do think he is still looking at people at the FBI and others who lied in the Pfizer court weren't applications to surveillance spy on the Trump campaign. And I still think that's a possibility. You know, it would certainly be proper justice to hold people at the top, like mccabe and Comey and others. I mean, they signed off on these fisa warrants. Again, and again. They swore under penalty of perjury, the information was true. It wasn't true. I'll just give you one example. They vouched for the credibility over and over again of Christopher Steele. Yet, they didn't disclose to the court that they'd fired Christopher Steele as a confidential source for what for lying.

Gregg Jarrett on Adam Schiff's Disgraceful Legacy

"Greg Gerry, you sent me a piece on Friday entitled Adam Schiff's disgraceful legacy. Right there, we heard him say the following. Anyone who lied to Christopher Steele. Or the FBI should be prosecuted. What about chairman of the intelligence committee of the House of Representatives who lied to America for four years about their having seen the quote incontrovertible evidence of Russian collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow? There are a lot of liars associated with the great Russia hoax and the ensuing witch hunt. Hillary Clinton, Christopher Steele, Igor steel source, I'd add James Comey to the list. But in my book, I wrote in the column, the most remorseless liar of all the flagrant huckster of hysteria over the Russia hoax is none other than Adam Schiff. Which Sean Hannity loves to call shifty shift. I mean, he is the most mendacious of them all. I mean, he is the top of the party not in terms of who lied the most and most often for four years. That's right. You know, he'd walk a mile for a camera shift did hundreds and hundreds of interviews with the stock up media. They didn't know a damn thing because they didn't bother to actually investigate any of the allegations or try to corroborate any of the dossier they simply took it as gospel as if it were scripture from Moses. You know, and so they are winning accessories the media. But they were played for fools. They were winning dupes. And at the hands of people, like Adam Schiff, who kept insisting over and over again, week after week year after year for years that he had in convertible evidence that Trump was a Russian asset who plotted with Putin in the bowels of the Kremlin to steal the 2016 election he said he had concrete evidence, absolute evidence, he'd seen it with his own eyes. We're just on the verge of the big reveal and he promised again and again, he was going to reveal it, but oh, you know, it's classified information right

"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

But talk to Joe, who's a former special counsel himself, former U.S. Washington attorney, U.S. attorney for D.C.. He said these indictments, the level of detail in these indictments, especially the most recent one of danchenko, speak to a very serious individual who's going to get to the bottom of it. You've been there. You uncovered the Russia hoax for the house. What's your reaction to the recent developments on Capitol Hill? Yeah, look I think that John Durham is spot on track. As a former federal prosecutor, too, who brought these types of large scale fraud conspiracy cases, I spent three four 5 years sometimes working up a case in John Durham is working on the biggest scandal in the United States presidential history. And in two years, he's got three indictments. And the other thing about these indictments, he's connected the DNC to the corruption at the FBI to the corruption of their lawyers to now directly corrupting or expose enough nature of Christopher steel in the source. And normally these indictments are about two, three, four, 5 pages long. 40 page indictment. Yeah. Issues on the latest go round because John Durham is speaking to the public. It's the only way he's legally allowed to do so. And he's highlighting to take Sullivan's of the world that Charlie Dolan of the world.

Dr. Keith Rose Explains the Dire Fertilizer Supply Crisis

"Joining us now is a friend of the show and someone that is a great American, doctor Keith rose. And we're going to go into a lot of different issues, but he really piqued my curiosity. We're talking the other day about something that everyone needs to be aware of about not just the supply chain issue, but there's another shortage issue, and remember we are 9 meals away from anarchy. And if there is a fertilizer shortage, we're going to have some big problems Keith. Welcome back. Tell us what's going on here and why should people care about this fertilizer shortage that people could see some news reports on, but this is going to affect everybody. What's going on? Good morning, Charlie. What's going on with that? Fertilizer situation right now is it's becoming harder and harder to get fertilizer. And for your listeners to understand the importance of fertilizer. Most fertilizer that is utilized in the growth of crops, especially commercial crops is synthetic fertilizer. Yeah, it's a nitrogen based fertilizer. The way you make that fertilizer fertilizers with natural gas. The price and it's being reported that this is the reason this is happening, but the spike in the price of natural gas is driving the largest fertilizer producer CF industries here in the United States to stop making it. It's becoming too cost prohibited, prohibited. And at the same time, Brazil, I mean, not Brazil, but China and Russia, the two largest exporters of fertilizer have stopped exporting fertilizer. It used to be third fertilizer with $350 a ton. Now it's $650 a ton. And if you can get it in 6 months, it's projected to go $950 a ton. What this means to the average American citizen is 35% of the cost of growing crops is fertilizer. And the average commercial farmer, the mom and pop farmers will not be able to afford fertilizer to grow crops. That with a major shortage of fertilizer and also a shortage of chemicals for pesticide control. Is going to potentially put us in a famine like crisis. By the spring, which is the prime growth

The british government officially handed over responsibility for hong kong to the people's republic of china marking end of one hundred and fifty six years of british rule. But there was a catch on. Kong's handover agreement included a constitutional guarantee of special status for hong kong. It's called one country. Two systems chapter one article. Five of the hong kong constitution reads the socialist system and policies shall not be practiced in the hong kong. Special administrative region and the previous capitalist system and way of life shall remain unchanged for fifty years under the agreement on kong would essentially maintain. Its atonomy except in matters of foreign affairs. National defense it. Also guaranteed hongkongers would continue to enjoy democratic freedoms and human rights including freedom of speech assembly and the press hong kong was to be an a wasilla of civil liberties living in the shadow of authoritarian at the handover ceremony. Prince charles gave a speech. Signaling hope for the future. Britain is part of hong kong's history and hong kong is part of britain's history. We are also part of each other's future. We are confident that the ties between us will not only enjoy but will continue to develop and for a time they did. Hong kong prospered as one of the world's major financial hubs nicknamed asia's world city a capitalist gateway connecting communist china to the western world.

"Be a good canadian. She says she's been targeted with abuse. Accused of being an agent of the chinese government. Nuff my family members including me. You have any relationship with the communist party of china. I'm not anti china. Amenemhat pro china. I were criticized china's government when they failed in something such as the beginning of the pandemic. But i'm happy to share my experience. China it was not that evil as people imagine here. It has both happy and sad. Memories like we we kinda experiencing any country. Actually most chinese immigrants belong to this category standing in the middle point by the way loss. Otherwise because the media or the public didn't want to hear last year vancouver. Police reported ninety eight anti asian. Hate crimes a seven hundred percent increase. So last march fiona helped to organize an anti asian racism rally in vancouver but further efforts she and others were targeted with online abuse from other members of the chinese community apparently because they'd failed to invite any groups that are openly critical of beijing near four. We might be sent by the chinese government to stir up. Canada through organizing stub asian. Hate ready. I was shocked. I was heartbreaking Trading and agreed. 'cause you know a a silent asian canadians. We need lots of courage to speak up. But this and stigma seriously hurt the chinese community in canada who try to speak up for ourselves. Leo shin is a professor and chinese cultural historian at the university of british columbia. He says many chinese canadians are afraid to share their political beliefs with anyone. Not knowing whether your friends and your neighbors and your acquaintances are monitoring you. We don't know nobody knows. But that's the possibility that he's also. What makes it work. He disagrees with claims that chinese diplomats are quietly pulling the strings behind the scenes but says beijing has shown a keen interest in fiercely controlling the narrative. Both at home and abroad. I don't think the council is giving direct orders but is clearly interested in promoting the story of china and the wider community. Both the chinese communities here and chinese students. They are aware of the interest of the counselor aware of the interest of the chinese government. Anyone who dares to challenge beijing's version risks facing the consequences particularly people who still have family members living in china like anesthesia. Lynn canadian actress and lavina states. Right now We'll past few years. I've been doing a lot of human rights work or on china. The thirty one year old was born in hunan china. Her father was a successful businessman. Her mother a university professor my family. They were in good standing like politically and economically. So they're considering both. My parents were considered the elites of society. Lynn was a good student and from a young age. Her mother encouraged her to become involved in student politics. She was fiercely patriotic leader in the young pioneers. The youth branch of the chinese communist party but after her parents divorced she and her mother emigrated to vancouver when she was thirteen. Let education courses very different and it took me a very long time to learn about the society. So i think that's something that western people who lived in the west. Most of their life sometimes can't really understand is that people moved from authoritarian society into free country. Usually don't just adjust so readily to ideas the freedom that democracy all the process it does take a few years and tape pearson's active research and learning chandler stand society but transition wasn't easy for years during her teens. She would get defensive anytime. Anyone criticized china's communist regime after awhile lynn's mother encouraged her to read canadian and other western newspapers and she came across a story marking the anniversary of hong kong's so-called june fourth incident. That's the day back in nineteen eighty nine. When student protesters took to tiananmen square and the chinese military responded with a brutal bloody crackdown. Any mention of the events of june fourth is strictly censored within china so it was all news to lynn june fourth massacre which event that i had never heard of in china. Ms thirteen years of life and that period of history for the ones who experience at the communist party reaching try to suppress the memory so deep that indignity is sort of bear. But just don't talk about it. An for people like me were born after the seattle massacre which is never heard of this historic event. And so i read. That and i was totally shocked. So i went online and watch more videos issue changed my world you completely and i did more research after that. That research included talking to a crowd of human rights protesters outside the chinese consulate in vancouver. You see them everywhere ash unnoticed because protests happened here so easily people don't appreciate a freedom you can actually gone street and voice your opinion. You know peaceful way without getting killed So i went to talk to you a lot of those people and when to teach meager students..

"Lot of what was going. I in vancouver cougars stories and others proved so shocking that in two thousand nineteen. Abc's government appointed a provincial supreme court judge austin colin to launch an inquiry into money laundering in the province. The cullen commission as it's known just wrapped up in april twenty twenty one after hearing testimony from around two hundred witnesses including politicians police officers and gambling officials being quiry also relied on cooper's investigative stories and reporting the title of his book is willful blindness. Why did you. Why did you choose that willful. Blindness is essentially a legal term and basically in my understanding. I wanted to go to law school but didn't do it. But i think i can get this right. It means that people either regulators politicians people with some regulatory authority know that something is occurring. They have a duty to stop it. But for various reasons quite often could be greeter power they turn a blind eye and let it continue and so willful. Blindness didn't just come out of my reading of legal texts. It came from actual documents that they obtained about bc lottery corporation investigations. Where it was written. We should be concerned that the lottery corporation this is the government agency that runs. These casinos will be accused of willful blindness for turning a blind eye to this drug money laundering. It's egregious and beyond that Police police have warned the government that this is occurring it. The drug cash transactions have not been stopped and there are people inside the casinos that are suspected to be working directly with organized crime. Other documents said organized crime has made efforts to take over. Vc casinos this is outright said greed for revenue in bc casinos and really throughout the economy and some ways especially real estate turned a blind eye to this known drug money laundering and the impacts are are just horrific. The colin commission will issue its findings in december. One open question in all of this remains. How does the chinese government. The communist party fit into the equation in the late. Nineteen nineties a joint. Rcmp ceases intelligence report called project concluded that the chinese government and asian criminal gangs were in fact working together in drug smuggling nuclear espionage and other criminal activities that threaten canadian security but at the time. That report was quietly shelved until it was eventually leaked to the globe and mail newspaper in two thousand sparking allegations that ottawa tried to bury the report. So as not to antagonize china at the time the liberal government was trying to encourage more trade deals between the two countries. Some academic and media reports have claimed that beijing occasionally employs triad bosses to work towards shared goals and crackdown on dissent in foreign countries while others condemn those claims as nothing more than unsubstantiated conspiracy theory and they point to chinese president. Xi jinping's massive crackdown on criminal gangs and corruption which was launched in twenty eighteen for his part. Richard fatten the former ceases director whom we met earlier in this episode believes that little happens in xi jinping china without beijing's blessing is organized crime in china controlled entirely by the communist party. I would guess not. But i dare say that. Very little activity that takes place in china that affects their strategic interests. Not you know their everyday interest would be allowed to function at all. So i suspect there's at least some sort of connection between the chinese state in these organizations or if there isn't a connection there is a clear understanding of how far they can go or not go in terms of pursuing their more mercenary insurance and for that reason he and other experts are wary of any secretive organisation with access to extreme wealth and weapons groups like golden touch the chinese government crackdown on the organization a few years ago amid allegations of fraud but it was nonetheless allowed to resume its activities and move its headquarters to canada where it operated under the radar of canadian authorities for years until one of its employees was brutally murdered now more than one year since the death of bo fan in june twenty twenty police say the trail has gone cold rcmp. Sergeant frank jiang says there are no updates no solid leads and little information from members of golden touch. We haven't spoken to a lot of people associated to this group again. Going back to the conjecture. Juries and you know the information coming into our information line the anonymous ones that we can't even follow back on you can tell you can probably sense the frustration in my voice. We we need people to tell us who they are. How they know what they know. And if is in fact true If they believe that there are those in this group that are somehow responsible for both ends murder we need. You need to reach out to us or at least provide a contact number so that we can reach out. Reach back to you right now. We don't have a lot because we haven't spoken to a lot and really There are so many parts of this investigation that is still shrouded in mystery. And we're hoping that there is you know just need one person that can help us pule back. Some of that mystery force on february. Nine twenty twenty one. The director of ceases and a spy agency issued a rare public warning about a covert campaign by the chinese government in canada. These activities are different from the norms of diplomatic activity because it crosses the line by attempting to undermine our democratic processes and threaten our citizens in a covert and clandestine manner will investigate claims that beijing is quietly applying pressure on canadians and their political leaders. And then my father also told me that national security art estate agents came to me and told him that. If i don't stop speaking about politics or humorous related things than my family would be persecuted liking ultra. I think over the course of the last ten or fifteen years. It's become a serious problem. i think. Initially they tried to operate largely with seeing the chinese canadian community.

"Nineteen the idea that this was frozen seafood Imported to china from elsewhere from europe is pretty unlikely considering the closest relatives stars coronavirus to are circulating in the wild and bats in east asia. So i think that again. We can't disprove that hypothesis. It's not off the table. But i just think that that is by far the most unlikely hypothesis. Chinese officials have also suggested without evidence that covid nineteen is an american disease that might have been introduced by members of the united states army who visited wuhan in october of twenty nineteen but angela like a lot of her colleagues believes. The most likely theory is a natural zoonotic origin that cova nineteen transferred from a bat in china to a person either directly or through another animal. If it's a natural origin what what people do need to understand is that this is like searching for a needle in a haystack. Anfield full of haystacks that are also full of other needles. It's really hard to find proof of natural origin. What we need to do is find essentially a very close relative or a direct ancestor of sarah's corona virus to she says that can take years even decades and in the meantime another origin. Theory has recently been receiving a lot of attention. There are growing calls now to investigate the possibility of an accidental leak from a lab in wuhan china. The wuhan institute virology has been studying corona viruses in bats for over a decade. And it's located just a forty minute drive from the wet market where the first cluster of infections emerged but for months that lab league theory was widely ignored with the notable exception of us president. Donald trump who fiercely promoted the idea which was then seen as an effort to distract from his own handling of the pandemic but recent. Us media reports have thrust that theory back into the spotlight after a leaked classified us. Intelligence report found the three researchers at the wuhan lab had been treated in hospital for corona virus like symptoms back in november twenty nineteen just weeks before the outbreak following those revelations us president. Joe biden announced an urgent investigation. That will look into that theory as a possible origin of the disease. Michael perrielli is a gist at the university of michigan. So i think all of those things have kind of said to me. Yeah you know why we cannot rule out at this point a lab accident but again as i said whether it was a lab accident. Door or natural zoonosis. I think that It was a natural virus in other words. The virus may have transferred to a human inside the wuhan laboratory. But he says there's absolutely no evidence to suggest the virus itself was cooked up in a lab. There's been some suggestion that this is a virus. That was deliberately engineered in a laboratory in. And i think that the data supporting that are are not good and and that syria. My view has been thoroughly refuted so if this virus did come out of a laboratory was because that laboratory was studying a naturally occurring virus in someone in that lab accidentally got infected in then was able to to spread it. While scientists and politicians argued about the origins of the pandemic chinese businesses were capitalizing on the chaos in twenty twenty countries around the world witnessed countless businesses close and record high unemployment but china was the only major economy that actually grew last year. Thanks in part to the sudden unprecedented demand for personal protective equipment even before the pandemic china supplied most of the world's p p but last year lows exports skyrocketed around ninety five percent of canada's imported face masks came from china costing around one and a half billion dollars these days china's most popular pandemic export is its covid nineteen vaccinations including one vaccine. That was supposed to be earmarked for canadians. We learned that we need to be much more careful in our collaborations with china. That's margaret mcquaid johnston. She's a senior fellow at the university of ottawa and specializes in china's science technology and innovation policies. For more than forty years margaret was a champion of china. She believed the country's prosperty would eventually spur democratic reform and she fiercely promoted those beliefs holding a number of senior management roles with the ontario and canadian governments and people like myself who have been friends of china for many years are now saying that china has changed and china is no longer the country that we once fell in love with during the final years of her career with the canadian. Government margaret sat on the canada china science and technology committee and she helped to lay the groundwork for what would become canada's covid nineteen vaccine collaboration with a chinese company called can sign biologists. Yeah so. Canada has had a partnership with cancer. I know Make to make vaccines and they really Have used canadian technology as the core to start their vaccine development..

But according to the tally that former troll we met back in Saint Petersburg. The trolls influence should not be underestimated. If an election race is close he says, they could have an impact and the trolls main goal isn't necessarily to promote a particular candidate. But rather to so division in western countries to weaken alliances like NATO that stand up to Russian aggression and to make America and its allies appeared, deeply divided and dysfunctional.

So instead, I met Uris lov Neil off an MP knee love like a lot of Russians, including their president doesn't totally deny that the troll factory was or is a real thing. But he insists they don't know anything about it. Besides what they've read in the press, and that it has no connection whatsoever to the Kremlin Neela also questions, whether even a small army of online trolls could actually influence an election result in a country like the United States or Canada. There's still think that the internet is a place, but the reasons that Trump won the election thing to do with us. You think that when Russia's blame? It is just the establishment trying to offer excuses as to why they have lost. And that raises an even bigger question do posts and advertisements on social media actually have the power to sway someone's political beliefs to change their vote the short answer. Based on the limited research available on that subject is not really they can reinforce or amplify someone's existing beliefs. So if you will already think that police are racist.

"Recently identified thousands of accounts and millions of tweets as coming from the Russian troll factory. Professor Warren had an idea, and we knew that with L listen accounts. We'd be able to to uncover more than anyone really had access to at that point about what these guys are trying to do. And so we sprung into action Warren and his team were able to effectively look back in time. They analyzed three million tweets that came from the trolls accounts, we're able to categorize him into six broad categories of sorts of accounts. Fisher what sort of person was this account pretending to be there were accounts that pretended to be from the gypsum? It local news sources, for example, while others tried to promote various hashtags, but Warren says the largest groups were dubbed the left drills and the right. Trolls left. Hurl accounts or sort of pretending to be folks on the extreme left of the political distribution people who are very upset with the system the way it is many of them strong supporters of black lives matter. But but not just that sort of a very left parts of the Democratic Party. Bernie Sanders supporters you'll sign supporters that sort of thing. And then the right troll accounts were sort of the opposite extreme very nationalistic vary pro-trump, very anti immigrant. And so these are these are the biggest set of accounts Warren, directed me to a spreadsheet containing three million troll tweets, and it's searchable. So you can type words like Canada or Justin Trudeau to find and read the tweets that specifically targeted Canadians. I've spent hours combing through the list, and it's funny. Some of the tweets seem totally ordinary. Mundane commenting on Canadian sports results, for example, but the majority of the posts focused on really divisive emotional issues such as Canada US relations and immigration. They would often cite stories of immigrants involved in crime. It seemed like they were just scraping as far as they could to find any examples of immigrants and involved in crime and emphasize those sorts of stories more than two thousand of the trolls tweets specifically mentioned Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, including the hashtag Trudeau must go and Trudeau is forced to rethink his open borders policy. A once again as Silom seekers are steadily pouring over the border from the US into Quebec and Canada during a spike in border crossings last year one troll account wrote Canada forced to take drastic action to stop illegals from flooding in..

"The anti Islam. Protesters waved confederate flags. One more a t shirt that said white power, and they were encouraged by the organizers on Facebook to bring their guns to the rally. The police were called in. There was some local press coverage. Well, it turns out that both protests for and against the Islamic library organized by Russian trolls nine thousand kilometers away and those rallies in Houston. Or just one example of Charles where he wouldn't social media marketing Sakarov says the troll factory organized and funded dozens of political rallies in the US on sensitive issues like immigration religion and race law enforcement separated. Two groups at Stone Mountain the white power rally and the counter protests, both got intense and violent the trolls organized a white power rally and counter protests last summer. Are in Georgia that made national news in the US and was also covered by Russian television of Toronto where proud health show Zuccaro says the troll factory had a budget of more than a million dollars a month paid for by Guinea prog- Osen, a Russian oligarch and close friend of President Putin. He's nicknamed Putin's chef because he started in the restaurant industry and has become one of Russia's wealthiest men. Thanks in large part to business and military contracts. He secured from the Kremlin, so big ocean is a sort of example of what what are called curator's in the Kremlin. That's Dan Treistman, a professor of political science at the university of California and author of the book, the new autocracy, which investigates the inner workings of the Kremlin Treistman says Putin relies heavily on people like prog- Osen who are called curator's. Basically freelancers who. Work outside the official channels of the Russian government. These individuals who are tasked with responsibility for some important sphere of activities, but who don't have any official state position. And therefore if they went into trouble, the Kremlin can denied that this has anything to do with the government. But at the same time Putin expects results from them. And in return, they're paid well or allowed various allowed to continue with various corrupt activities, which very lucrative proposing is one of thirteen Russians named an indictment from Robert Muller and the US department of Justice in connection to the troll factory. But despite the commonly held belief that the trolls main goal was to help elect Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen Sakarov says most of the time they actually promoted both sides of an issue. They were creating ads and posts that were both. Pro Muslim and anti-muslim both for and against gun ownership and both Republican and democrat of Wayne a Nella was to support Trump. I mean, the main a Worcester race ole tensions in American society. But what about Canadian society Zuccaro says the troll factory had a US department and an international department. The targets other countries. He says Canada's close proximity and relationship to the US means Canadians are also targeted albeit on a much smaller scale that Osama tensions between the the in Canada. That's why thousands of tweets that talked about Canadian issues. That's Patrick Warren on an associate professor of economics eh, Clemson university a few years ago. Warren's colleagues at his university in South Carolina developed a tool called the social media listening center. It's base. Basically an archive of posts from social media. So when Twitter.

"For files without their owners, knowing though the website fatality wrote for was made to look like it was based in Ukraine and his articles mostly focused on the war in that country. But instead of the annexation of Crimea by pro Russian separatists and the Russian military batali was instructed to write about a militia of volunteers who were fighting for freedom against the evil western back to Ukrainian government, and he recalls his manager telling him the most important rule. Shoe told me don't mention Russia. Russia does not participate in this conflict at all. And you can't say otherwise Russian president flat. Amir Putin later admitted that Russian forces had in fact, been deployed to Ukraine, but at the time in two thousand fourteen the Kremlin was still insisting that any Russian troops were merely patriotic volunteers who are in Ukraine on their holidays. Batali says after writing the articles he would then spam the links to the stories all over the internet. So in chat rooms on social media dating websites wherever he could find he admits back, then it was pretty basic work. But that was just the beginning. We were the first one of the pioneers of this work. Now, I can see what they're doing in many other countries now despite his moral objections the tally continued working at the troll factory for about three months. He said his plan was to collect enough information. So that he could publicly expose what was going on there, which he did at first publishing an anonymous article online, but before he resigned his post in November twenty fourteen he said the troll factory had started recruiting English-speaking employee's.

"Do you might expect to meet, but he says that's partially because he had no idea what he was signing up for when he was first hired by the troll factory back in twenty fourteen back. Then he says he was an aspiring young journalist looking for work when he came across an online ad for what he thought was a job at a news website. He says the starting pay was pretty good better than. Average. So he applied and he got a call. Flo. When I went for the job interview. There was tight security at the building. My manager asked me a lot of strange questions like they wanted to know where my family members worked. Provided samples of articles had written about the persecution of Russia's LBJ Q community and about opposition leader Alexia Velnje. Only. But they didn't seem to worried about my politics. Said that I wouldn't be writing those type of articles that I was clearly a good writer, and they offered me this job. But after a couple of days at the office batali realized this was not an ordinary newsroom. He'd actually been hired as a professional internet troll. My job was to write twenty news articles a day full of pro-kremlin propaganda. And then share the articles using fake online account created with name and photos taken from real online.

"Nondescript apartment buildings and offices, and there's one building year that's four stories tall that has a large for rent sign hanging in the window. And if not for the Russian translator who is accompanying me here, I would never guess that. This was the home of the internet research agency, the official name for the now notorious Russian troll factor. The Kremlin troll is a known thing in Russia. The American and Canadian it's weren't prepared for it. I'm Jeff simple. The Europe bureau chief for global news. And this is Russia rising as a Canadian correspondent based in Europe. I do a lot of reporting on Russia. It's a world superpower, of course, hugely important country. And it's one that's not afraid to throw its weight around on the world stage and Russia is constantly being accused of behaving badly of meddling hacking doping invading neighboring countries, even assassinating former spies, but despite all of that coverage and constant attention. I think Russia is also deeply misunderstood by many people in the western world including Canada. So on this podcast. We'll try to piece together the puzzle separate fact from fiction and unravel the mystery that is Russia with help from those who know her best and on this episode. We're going hunting for trolls not. The kind that live under bridges and carry large clubs. I'm talking about Russian internet trolls credited, these using the internet to manipulate political opinion can Russia, according to one full the Russian internet troll, the United States to like the kind accused of interfering in the 2016 US presidential campaign. Facebook told congress Russian trolls hosted eighty thousand items from January two thousand fifteen this August two thousand seventeen rushing reaching more than twenty million in the United States. In fact, this evening new report about Russia's efforts to stir up racial conflict right now inside the United States. But how do those trolls actually work and come on? Is it really possible for a group of people on the internet to affect an election result in a different country and besides the United States, which we've heard a lot about. I also wanted to know if. Other countries specifically Canada are targeted to. So I came to Saint Petersburg to ask a guy who knows firsthand what these trolls are up to you. See Vitale best ball of used to be one of them. Vitol, Ian, I meet at a park in Saint Petersburg. And we find a bench where we can sit down and chat. He did not want to meet near his house because he said he was worried that we might inadvertently identify the location where he lives and that he could then be targeted for speaking to us about his experience at the troll factory. And it's hard to blame the guy for being worried. We tried reaching out to a few other former professional trolls who used to work at the trophy factory and have since quit and spoken publicly about their experiences, but most of them don't want to talk anymore. They say they've been threatened with criminal charges. Accused of being an American spy, for example, another one we spoke to had a family member fired from their job after he did an interview and batali himself has actually done. Some media interviews before and paid the price. He says he's been threatened with espionage charges and had his reputation smeared by. Stories produced by the Kremlin controlled TV channels in Russia. They accused him of being a drug addict, for example. But despite all of that, he bravely agreed to meet with us and speak to us about his experience. Gave it a lot of fun. But I believe it's important for me to tell my story. No. The TV channels like yours report on exit. Now, I've got to admit batali doesn't exactly look like a Russian troll. I mean, he's a skinny young guy wearing his hat backwards. He's got a stuttered bracelet on his wrist and more than a few tattoos running up. His arm of words written in Russian seraphic when I asked him about the tattoos. He rolls up his sleeve and shows me that he's actually got the face of a Russian opposition leader drawn on his shoulder. So not exactly the pro Kremlin. Propagandist..
