Savannah residents nurture young trees in vacant lots
"Savannah Georgia is famous for its trees graceful live oaks griped with Spanish moss shade many of its historic streets. The city's trees are not only beautiful. They provide shade cool local neighborhoods and help absorb stormwater. But many are disappearing. We're losing trees through development and two major storm events. That's advantage sustainability director Nick. Definitely he says that to help restore Savannah's tree canopy, the city is planting new trees it recruited and unemployed residents to help transform three vacant lots nurseries where young trees can until they're ready to plant where needed. So we now have these urban tree nurseries in low-lying underserved communities, and they are being built up and beautified and designed on grown by folks from that community deathly says these local paid apprentices receive training job placement, and an opportunity to become certified landscaping professionals. We're focused on giving people skills to learn how to increase their economic mobility and get better jobs and take pride in the community that they live in all while helping create a skilled workforce that can maintain Savannah's beautiful trees for many years to come.

"Ravi say what's up to fire nation and sheriff something interesting about yourself that most people don't know what is going on fire nation. Thank you guys for lending me your ears I've been listening to this podcast for quite a while now, and it's a little surreal experience to be on this end of it. So this morning I'm thinking I listen to this for very long time and I'm like I. Know John's GonNa. Ask Me something that a lot of people don't know and like any online digital marketer. Open Book and so I was like what? So I'm going to share with you guys on that literally one person this entire world knows and it's funny I'm bringing it out on this block Seo but about a year ago in July of Twenty nineteen, I had this weird edge and I ended up actually selling all of my stuff in. Florida about a week including my caller just junked it and I moved to. Spain and I lived in Spain for about forty five days and I was just hopping coastal city council city working on businesses, work my clients, and while I was in a coastal city. In Spain I'm not GONNA say what? So people don't look up when I'm about to tell you my walls in a coastal city in Spain I don't drink. I drink a few times a year and I was out at this pretty cool jazz club and I was like two three in the morning, which is in Spain when they're just getting started really and there's a brawl breaks out right where I'm at at the bar or ordering a soda at the Bar and just abroad but breaks out right next to me and ends up at, I. Try to break the brawl up the police come. they come up to me I speak decent Spanish because I've lived abroad for a while but not good enough to get me out of the situation I I actually end up spending the next three and a half hours in a drunk tank and a small jail cell in a coastal city in Spain and it took him a while to you if I had to give my find my password and it showed all that stuff and I finally got out of it and The only other person that knows someone that met me the next day and they wonder why looks so off By parents don't know nobody knows that stories. So yeah, I'm on our convict in Spain. Okay. Well, this is only a couple listeners. So fire nation keep it to yourself here like not a big deal. So. I WANNA start off on a little bit of a somber notes because as I shared fire nation during the introduction, we're talking about barshop way to millions but in many of us have dealt with some one in our lives that we love who dealt with some form of this but your Dad Ravi had stage four cancer. So talk to us about that and how that situation. Caused you to throw it all away. Awesome questions. So whole life was going to be a lawyer and that was that was the goal was law school was the number one priority, and in order to be a lawyer, you have to take what's known as a law school admission test and you had the really score highly on and if you WANNA go great law school which I did. And so I took a year off after graduating from college and I was about to start studying for this also emission tests in about three days. After I graduated I, got a call from my dad who lives in Atlanta Georgia. I was in Florida at the time and he told me news he was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and like John Says, you know everyone here has experienced cancer somewhere the other, but it's like when it's yourself or someone as Close Your Dad, it's a whole different experience and kind of threw me. For a loop and so I ended up packing all my stuff up moving to Atlanta. Georgia, and for the next year I would wake up at four am workout until five. Then from five to eight, I'll be studying for this law school admission test than about eight to five I'll be doing Chemo and radiation with my dad every single day. Monday. Through Friday and then when I got home at about six, o'clock, I'd be studying until eleven midnight every night back again on a law school admission test. So it was quite a surreal experience. I'm really really blessed to say my dad's been about two years in remission. So just actually visited him in Savannah Georgia, two days ago I was just seeing him but what it really did open up for me was. How fragile life was I was kind of going down around that I think somebody else wanted me to go down and I read a really awesome book called the subtle not giving of an economy I was just like, okay I'm doing this for all the wrong reasons and I decided you know what I took the law school admission test spent eighteen years preparing for it. I actually scored in the top ten percent of test takers in the United States I got into my dream schools, top schools in the nation. and. Then I said you know what? I'M GONNA go work at a talion restaurant down the road and try to figure out this entrepreneurship
30000 Americans receive Covid-19 vaccine in major test
"The Corona virus front. Let me lightning around a bunch of stuff here. Final test of the Madonna Covert 19 vaccine trial. Has begun, according to numerous reports. This is the world's biggest vaccine study and the final phase here launched today with the 1st 30,000 US participants. Beginning the test for this vaccine for this experimental immunization developed by modern along with the date with the National Institutes of Health. Savannah, Georgia, Speaking of Georgia was the first trial site to get up and running there going to be over a dozen across the country for the third phase here, according to Madonna. Now, what's gonna happen is volunteers that get the shot. They're not going to know if they're getting the rial vaccine or the placebo, the inert jab in the arm after two doses of the shot, Then the researchers will look and see which group experiences Mohr infections. As they continue running around doing their their normal things, and especially, they're going to be looking at areas where people are part of the trials, and these areas are experiencing the bumps. The increases. In Corona virus. Certainly Florida Georgia, the Carolinas. You've got the Sunbelt States. Texas, You've got Arizona, California.

The Year Without a Summer
"The heat of summer is well and truly here in the Northern Hemisphere, the hot humid days just won't let up and living in new. York City I continue to be frustrated that central air conditioning is not as ubiquitous in homes and businesses, as it is in most parts of the southern United States where I grew up. Then, of course, it's always been substantially hotter in those southern states, although with climate change, the northeast is heating up more and more, but that does make me think sometimes. How the heck did people survive before? Joining especially in those very hot climates, farmers ALMANAC A few insights nothing to mind blowing people would take day trips to swing holes or up. To cooler weather, they kept windows and doors shut at midday to keep out hot air and delayed cooking or baking. Until the evening they ate refreshing. Cool treats and was available in homes, blue fans across blocks of ice, the biggest factor most likely however was it simply wasn't as hot as it is now at least in terms of extremes, quoting farmers, Almanac, the extra ordinarily hot summers that are commonplace today were virtually unheard of fifty to one hundred years ago in fact, seven of the top ten coolest, US summers on record occurred nineteen, hundred and nineteen fifty and quotes. There was one year however over two centuries ago now that it was a lot cooler. Eighteen Sixteen Aka the year without a summer quoting farmers. ALMANAC referred to by many names, including the poverty year and eighteen hundred and froze to death, the year eighteen sixteen was literally a year without a summer across much of the northern hemisphere throughout not only North America, but also northern Europe and parts of Asia in exceptionally cold summer, featuring killing frosts in July in August crippled food production crop failures in food shortages were. Were so widespread that rioting and looting became common in the United Kingdom and France on this side of the Atlantic. Many residents of New England and the Canadian Maritimes froze to death, starved, or suffered from severe malnutrition, as storms, bringing foot, or more of snow, hit hard during May and June. Many others from the region pulled up stakes and move to western New York in the Mid West where the cold was less severe. In fact, the year without a summer is now believed to have been one major catalyst in the westward expansion of the United States and quotes Nicole may have been less severe in the southern and Western us, but it was still highly unusual on July fourth eighteen sixteen. It was forty six degrees Fahrenheit in Savannah Georgia. For the record this year on July fourth and Savannah, it was ninety degrees. So. Why did this happen? It was due to one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history Indonesia's Tamboura. The volcano erupted on April Fifth Eighteen fifteen, continuing to up for a week and killing nearly all of the twelve thousand residents of Tim, Bora as well as almost all plants in animal life on the island, quoting the Paris review, countless tons of volcanic. Volcanic ash circulated in the upper atmosphere for years after the events blocked out sunlight and lowering average surface temperatures globally in parts, of North, America Europe temperatures dropped by more than eighteen degrees. Fahrenheit there was snow in New England July and dark rain clouds swept over Europe throughout the summer months in Hungary reports of Brown snowfall, tainted by volcanic ash and quotes. Understandably many thought the world was ending that the sun was dying. It's really fascinating. Though is some of the cultural ripples that this massive event caused. You may be familiar with the story of how Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was inspired to write Frankenstein as part of a spooky storytelling challenge when she percy shelley and Lord Byron and friends were holed up in a villa in Geneva. One stormy summer turns out. It was this dark, thunderous apocalyptic. Apocalyptic summer of eighteen sixteen. The crew had gone to Geneva, both to ride out the unusually rainy summer, but also to escape their various dramas in England, being stuck indoors for so much of their trip Lord. Byron challenged them all to write ghost stories to entertain one. Another Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein which would set the stage for all of science fiction to come? Also among the Geneva Villa guests was Lord Byron's personal physician Dr John Polidori. Who wrote short story for the challenge called the vampire, and this story is often credited with the birth of the Modern Vampire Romance. But those genre defining publications aren't the only cultural institutions to come out of the summer last year of Eighteen, sixteen among the mini shortages across Europe was a crucial shortage of oats which led to the starvation and deaths of countless humans and livestock, including at least ten thousand horses, not counting how many were also slaughtered to save money or become dinner German? Baron Carl Dreyer's and inventor in student of mathematics started trying to design a man powered form of transportation, while historians agree that he was inspired by the weather based os shortage. He also saw a need for an alternative to horses as crucial for war. Quoting the Paris review his first designs for human powered transportation involved complex conveyor belt, driven four wheeled vehicles, but raises breakthrough came when he turned his thoughts to balance drawing on his experiences, skating on ice ponds drains, put his faith in the power momentum and front wheel, steering to keep a two wheel vehicle rate. This idea became his love, machine or running machine and quotes, and this running machine would become the modern day bicycle. All of this makes me think about how many things will change or be invented from this moment that we're living through. And of course there's a lot of things we're already seen, and we're likely to continue to see some big cultural shift, but like who, out there is writing the next genre defining novel that people will still be reading two centuries later. Who's inventing something that will be innovated on for decades before becoming a ubiquitous ordinary mode of transportation. Maybe won't be those types of things specifically, but there are surely ideas happening and things being created that we won't realize the impact of for decades

Atlanta - Savannah mayor hits back at Kemp for overriding local mask mandates: He 'does not give a damn about us'
"Words on Twitter from the mayor of Savannah, Georgia. It is officially official wrote Mayor Van Johnson last night. Governor Kemp does not give a damn about us. The mayor's tweet came shortly after Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed an executive order banning local governments from requiring masks that put a finer point on an earlier executive order prohibiting cities and counties from taking any action that was more restrictive than what was ordered statewide. And so amid rising cases of Corona virus throughout Georgia, existing mask mandates, including the one in Savannah, are essentially void. Mayor Van Johnson joins us now Welcome to the program. Thank you so much. I appreciate the opportunity. Well, I'm sure you know. Governor Kemp has said he strongly encourages mass. He wears one in public. But, he says requiring them is impractical and unenforceable for local business owners. For example, he says, mandates are a bridge too far. How do you respond to that? I respond to it by following the science, um, is issue about public safety about public health, or is it about convenience? Right to the west of us all. The state of Alabama now mandates mask in South Carolina and in Florida, they live up to them in the palate ease to decide whether the mandate mask And even today, the White House when asked about a nationwide math quarter on the White House is leaving that decision up to localities. So again, I think for us we are in the fight for lots were trying to get past Cove in 19. It's going to take all of us firing on all cylinders, working together to be able to make this happen, and we know from the sides from the CDC, which is located in Atlanta. That wearing mask is a part of the three pronged approach to be able to slow down the spread of this virus. And you made mass mandatory in public spaces and commercial establishments there in Savannah on July 1st, you were the first in Georgia to do so. How hard has it been to enforce has not really been hard to enforce because Again. Our goal here was compliance, not enforcement. So we've given out over 1000 mask and anyone who wanted a mass before we will write a ticket for anyone. We would offer him a mask. And so our visitors, our citizens gratefully took a mask on and therefore no ticket was required. The goal of this again. It's 1/2 people to wear a mask and again we have with 15 million visitors come to our beautiful city every year. Some know some don't know again. Our role is to make sure we educate and make sure we provide a mass that they are a compliant. Governor Kim's office sent us a statement here at NPR calling your mask mandate illegal since it is more restrictive than what's mandated statewide. And they said there's no evidence you're taking action to enforce what is required statewide, including social distancing. They say you haven't stopped unlawful gatherings in your city, for instance, How do you respond to that? Hey, I think again where we're really focused on the wrong things. Um, The reality is that science is very, very clear. We're all doing the best we can during these very hard type again. Social distancing per his order is filled with 50 people. I believe and again, people are out. Things are open and people are gathering. Um and begin our ability to enforce. It is limited because these unfunded mandates from the state level the government could put order out there. But he's not giving us a resource is to help us to enforce those orders. So again, we're doing the best that we can again. This is really about the wearing of mask. This is about being able to keep people safe decides has been absolutely clear. On July 2nd government, Kemp said himself that he was not going to stand in the way ofthe Savannah's mandatory mass corner. Yet here we are two weeks later, and he's issuing something specifically and the only one in the country. That specifically, um denies cities and counties the ability to be able to take care of their citizens. And to me that's unacceptable and we're almost out of time. But quickly. What now for Savannah, will you fight the ban on mask mandates? And in the meantime, what are you telling residents of your city? Well for us. There's nothing to fight a CZ. Where could we were concerned of Savannah's mass mandate is still in effect. We still have legal standing. We believe the government does not have the authority. Um And so therefore we continued to enforce it will enforce our current mask order. Even if that brings you head to head with the governor. Again, the governor do would he have to do? We will do what it takes, and we believe we have not only legal standing, but we have the science behind us to Dolly demonstrate that an emergent condition exists in Havana in Georgia. I'm going to stop you there. But thanks so much. That's Mayor Van Johnson of Savannah, Georgia. Thank you. And since we spoke with Mayor Johnson NPR has learned that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has filed a lawsuit against Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance bottoms to block her city's mask wearing requirement.
Giving Rise to the Famous Phrase 40 Acres & a Mule
"The months following the civil war, and the start of reconstruction offered African Americans in the south hope for equality. It also offered the possibility of owning land. Within months African Americans would be betrayed by a harsh reality. You probably heard the phrase forty acres and a mule. Here's what happened. In January eighteen, sixty, five, a meeting in Savannah Georgia. Between Union, Military Leader General William to come Sherman and a group of twenty black ministers resulted in a plan to redistribute confiscated and abandoned confederate land from south, Carolina to Florida. They. Call the Land Sherman's reserve. Newly freed slaves would be allocated forty acres of land along with a mule, the phrase which became well-known, even then spread quickly. The plan had the potential to revolutionize race relations in the south and the economic future of the African American community. The significance about formerly enslaved being given the land that they had actually worked was that they would be able to generate wealth as well as create wealth generation. But the summer of eighteen sixty five thousands of black families had settled on portions of the Sherman Reserve and were excited to plot their futures. But later that year, as part of his reconstruction plan, actually intended to appease the former confederacy President Andrew. Johnson abruptly cancelled the order giving the land back to its previous owner's. The United States had the opportunity to make it possible for the formerly enslaved people to be. Independent and the country failed to do it. That initial meeting more than one hundred years ago between General Sherman and Savannahs, leading black ministers was historic at least for a brief moment in history, the opinion of black leaders had led directly to a radical public policy initiative remarkably over a century and a half later on June nineteen, two, thousand nineteen, the House of Representatives held a hearing on H R forty, a bill named in honor of the famous phrase, forty acres and a mule. The bill would establish a commission to study the concept of reparations for slavery and Jim Crow Segregation, including the merits of a formal apology by the United States government.

Gift of Recovery: 52 Mindful Ways To Live Joyfully Beyond Addiction with Rebecca Williams
"All right. Let's talk about our guest today. Her name is Rebecca Williams and she is going to talk about mindfulness. She's an award winning author psychologist and leader in the field of wellness and recovery from Mental Health and addiction. She's been doing this for over twenty years and focused on helping people build resilience and embracing wellbeing now. I love mindfulness. It's a center part of my life and been crucial to my healing so I was so happy to have rebecca come on and talk about it and share her wisdom so I think it's great episode. I hope you guys enjoy it and let's go ahead and start it all right. Hello everyone welcome to the addicted. Mind and my guest today is Rebecca Williams Rebecca. You WanNA introduce yourself yes. Thank you so much for having me Dwayne. My name is Rebecca Williams. I may licensed psychologist. I lived and worked in San Diego. California Beautiful San Diego for twenty five years and just recently came out to Savannah Georgia to be around wildlife and beauty and nature. It's gorgeous out here. My path to about going into addiction really was about my family struggles with addiction especially my mother who's now gone but she struggled with addiction. And so I come from this from a family history angle and wanted to learn more and more about. It studied it in college. Master's degree also in counseling psychology. As well as a PhD at University of California Santa Barbara. So this is very personal to you. Yes it's personal and professional so it's a nice combination. Yeah I think that's somehow how it kind of works right because this is personal to me as well but also professional exactly. Yeah for sure all right. So let's talk about just go will just jump right in and talk about one of the things that you do. And one of. Your specialties is. Mindfulness this is a topic that I love. Mindfulness has been fundamental in my healing. So I'd love to hear everything you have to say about it and how you discovered it and how you found it how it's helped you and how you used to help others right great question. I agree mindfulness as paramount to my healing and my ability to be psychologists essentially came through mindfulness personally through yoga and that was before. Yoga was cool. I which is in the eighties now. It's real cool but back then it was just kind of a one off and not everyone knew about it or did it and I just learned about it and actually started teaching yoga in the eighties and then from there moved into mindfulness and meditation. I started like a lot of people. Didn't know what the Heck I was doing. I bought a a meditation cushion and I thought I had it all taken care of but I didn't. So you know just like a lot of people you go into meditation. Not knowing what's going on if you're doing it right and I came in with a sitting on my yoga meditation cushion with you. Know my coffee. My newspaper my cereal. I was all just anxious and not figuring it out quite yet until I slowly one by one got rid of the coffee and then the cereal and then the newspaper and I finally figured out after years. Just to bring myself to the meditation cushion and not get so cluttered with a bunch of other stuff. So I've been working on that for about twenty years or so so it was something you found to quiet. You're anxious mind. Which is something that I can totally relate to. Yeah I mean especially anxious mind and then going into the profession of mental health where you're dealing with a lot of other people with anxiety and depression and addiction and grief and loss and rage so you it takes a special person to stay in the profession and to really be well in the profession of mental health. And that's been my journey to stay well as I moved through this profession. So you know I was as you were talking and I was thinking about interviewing today. I was thinking about my own journey with mindfulness. And I remember. I was in Crisis in my life and had a ton of anxiety like overwhelming anxiety and I was beginning this profession and someone had given me. I think a book by John Cabot sin called full catastrophe living and I started reading that I started doing mindfulness because I just wanted to exactly. Yeah I mean we all habit and some more than others but there's a way through it and once you get it where you can have the ability to calm your mind down like like we're doing right now so anyone listening to this. Podcast can actually focus on the breathing and releasing tension. It's a practice just like recovery is a practice. Same thing with mindfulness right. So let's talk a little bit about what? Mindfulness is or how you bring it to your work or to someone who's struggling with addiction right and you mentioned John Cabot Zinn. I think his definition of it and he's in Massachusetts I think or maybe he's retired by now but his research and his ability to interact with his patients who had medical conditions really set the stage over the last thirty years but his ability to connect with people by just being in the room with them is pretty special. He thinks of mindfulness as being in the present moment on purpose. And this is the important part without judgment so being in the present moment. That's a challenge doing it on purpose. That takes a little bit extra work and then this special thing which I think we all struggle with is without judging rather than judging. Oh Am I doing it right? Or is this the right way to go actually just slowing down and releasing the judgment letting the thoughts flow through you and out versus getting stuck and having those thoughts hijack your wellbeing and that's challenging not to be judgmental having today is because we're judging everything all the time are categorizing? We're putting into different thoughts about it. Good bad and to be able to just sit there and watch takes some practice exactly. It takes practice just like anything else in life like even if you take a yoga class the first time it's icky and you really don't WanNa go back but once you get into the rhythm of it of not judging or releasing the judgment. I should say your brain starts to recalibrate itself. It's the oddest thing that happens. But actually new pathways open up. That are less sticky and more clear and smooth and calm. So it's you know you're right. It is a life journey to try to manage the judgement.

Daniil Medvedev claims first Masters title in Cincinatti
"The world's best men's tennis player at least at this moment is deal medvedev going into last week. The twenty-three-year-old russian had made two consecutive tournament finals here in washington d._c. And then in montreal then this past week in cincinnati he we used huge first and second serves and really solid for hands back ends to beat world number-one electric in the semi finals and divvied viewed goffin in the final to win the biggest title of his career and move up to a career-high number five in the world behind only jovic rafael nidal roger federer and dominic team stephens hero. The eighth ranked stefanos citybus. Thank you is owen foreign his career against gets medvedev seats apostol ben rothenberg last week than medvedev plays sloppy adding. It's good sloppy. He can make you miss without your understanding how you just missed you. Miss shots that you don't mess. That's deep kind of. I watched medvedev in d._c. So i have a good sense of how well the dude is playing but i it didn't know before i saw a pretty oblique tweet on sunday. Is that three years ago medvedev was defaulted from a match on the second tier challenger tour. You're in a match which was played on clay and savannah georgia medvedev. Who was then ranked number. Two hundred sixty in the world was playing donald young young as a black american can player in the first at the chair umpire. A black woman in sandy franch went down to the court to check the ball mark on shot medvedev hit. There was close to the sideline. She called the ball out giving young the point which led medvedev mark. I know that you are friends. I am sure about it. After the game was over french called over tournament supervisor advisor medvedev was quickly defaulted for what the united states tennis association later referred to as questioning the impartiality of the umpire based on her race. There is unfortunately precedent for that incident in two thousand one. Australian lleyton hewitt claimed that a black line judge at the u._s. Open was calling foot-faults on him to to favor hewitt's black opponent american james blake. I've only been foot-faulted of one end. Look at him. Look at him. Look at him. Mate hugh had said look at him. I and you will tell me what the similarity is. Get him off. The court. Look at what he's done. Hewitt was not penalized during a match or afterwards the u._s. Us open tournament director brian earley who you may remember as the guy who came on the court during last year's yes open final when serena williams demanded to speak to the terminent director during her her conflict with chair umpire carlos ramos early ruled that there was no violation of quote grand slam code of conduct and that quote the evidence events was inconclusive as to the intent of mr hewitt's remarks to the chair umpire q._a. for his part said i come from a multicultural country. I'm not racial any way at all. Though hewitt didn't get sanctioned. John mcenroe called his on-court statement unforgivable. It has indeed followed hewitt for his whole career areo still hear people mention it when hewitt's name comes up medvedev's words have gotten less attention because they came in a minor league event probably also because he wasn't yet well known when it happened as far as i know medvedev has never commented on this <hes> the incident did get brought up in two thousand seventeen when at wimbledon medvedev eh opened his wallet and started throwing coins at the base of the umpire's chair to make a not so subtle point about the empires bias alleged bias towards his opponent it

"Bob, Savannah, Georgia on the great WT ks. Go. Hey, mark. I appreciate your comments about the constitution. You know, those people that call it a dying or or dying document or doesn't apply anymore. Founders had such a precedent wisdom that one thing is constant throughout time. And that's the central nature of the simple aspects of human nature and say saw that and they understood that would never change. In that regard. My question is the Democrats are so overreaching on all their committee requests or Trump's tax returns, the subpoena requests from the banks the people he's done business with his family. My question is what protection does he have under the fourth amendment as pertains unreasonable? Search and seizure just seems to me like so much of this is so over the top. And yet I wonder what protections. He would he wouldn't get it protection under an unreasonable search and seizure argument unreasonable. Search and seizure that is a warrant without probable cause. And so forth. It's a different category. Be separation of powers argument because all they're trying to do is bring down the president United States. That's not the oversight function of the legislative branch. He doesn't report to the house of representatives. And that's what they're trying to do the trying to change. The function. And and of the presidency, and they're trying to change the dynamics of separation of powers has an individual. He should raise all the statutory rights that he has to protect his information from being used for political purposes. And that's the only purpose they have. So wouldn't be due process issue. Or search and seizure issue? It would be a separation of powers issue, and it would be a statutory issue. Okay. This was clearly. Just reading language. I wasn't sure if for how that might have flied clarify when you read article one, you'll be scratching your head to figure out how they subpoenas have anything to do with the activities of the of the legislative branch. If we thought that the molar investigation was a witch hot, this is even more. So I mean, they can't see any basis whatsoever. For the subpoenas. And other requests, the Democrats have made particularly Nadler. All right, my friend. Appreciate your call. Christopher Ray is the FBI director. And honestly, this guy at least in this public comments is really quite useless. And here he is at a Senate hearing on Trump's twenty twenty budget request today. Cut three go when FBI agents conduct investigations against alleged mobsters, suspected terrorists other criminals. Do you believe that they're engaging in spine when they're following FBI investigative policies? She she's trying to set up the narrative. We're talking about the FBI investigating. A presidential candidate not the mob. That's the spec to terrorists not other criminals. A presidential candidate. Robert Ray, go ahead. Will that's not the term? I would use. Thank you. So I would I would say no to that question. Well, I mean look there. Lots of people have different colloquial phrases. I believe that the FBI spying is not a colloquial phrase colloquial phrase. Colloquial phrase would be may be in the south somebody saying you all. Colloquial phrase. It's a phrase that has actual meaning. Go ahead. Investigative activity and part of investigative activity includes surveillance activity of different shapes and sizes. Okay. So when you survey somebody you're spying on the why can't you just say that what the these bureaucrats these rhinos these I don't know where they even come from. They have to play this game. You see because they don't want to be criticized. Go ahead. To me. The key question is making sure that it's done by the book consistent with our lawful. Apparently. That's not your key question because you've been BI director now for a while. You haven't done a damn thing about what the senior level yet before you had done Kim done a damn thing about. Guy had. Different people use different colloquial phrases. Yeah. Okay. Brilliant. She's not done. Cut four go at this time. Do you have any evidence than any illegal surveillance into the campaigns or individuals associated with the campaigns by the FBI occurred? I don't think I personally have any evidence of that sort. I don't personally have any evidence that sort tummy have you looked into it. Now. Why didn't you ask the next question? This Shaheen used to be the attorney general New Hampshire. I believe before. She was governor Robert Ray, he was an attorney before he was at BI director. I don't think I personally have any evidence of that sort. Will let me ask you something. Mr. Ray, have you actually investigated it? No. Have you investigated? What Mr. helper did no? Or how about the the new revelation in the New York Times, can you tell us about that. No, not really. Does the joke. This is a joke. So what's really going on here? What's really going on here? Well, Nancy Pelosi, and they keep learning this out really Al green, the non singer, but Algren the congressman left wing democrat coke. He said the other day, we can't let Trump have another term.

Now, you're two thousand employees and people think your institution, but it started small what an eighteen sixty five after the civil war ten years. Nice where your founding ABRAHAM LINCOLN did something pretty magical January do real quick January eighteen sixty five he had a general go to Savannah, Georgia. And allocate forty thousand acres to former slaves who said we don't want to hand out. We don't want welfare we want land. We wanna do for our now see that wasn't a black answer one the Latino answer when the white answer when the Asian answer. It was just an answer. And they said fine. Here's his land. And it was down the coast on the east from North Carolina thirty miles from the beach all the way to what we call. Miami was set aside for former slaves now today, we love that land and data but in eighteen sixty five in agricultural arena. It was horrible place to plan. You put your seats down on the beach and wake up tomorrow your crops in Jamaica. So. But we didn't complain about it. We didn't whine about it. We got busy. No Snapchat, Facebook, no Twitter, Instagram cell phone. Probably why we hustled so hard the next month. The general said my God, they're so industrious give them a mule, forty acres. So that was January February March third eighteen sixty five ABRAHAM LINCOLN sign legislation for the Freemen's Bank. A Bank charter to teach slaves about money the same day he put in God we trust on US currency. So that slavery and government indoors capitalism. Never would meet again, and he was killed the next month. April eight hundred eighty five that was three the most incredible months of public policy in our history. But no one knows it because he was fascinated that Bank was across the street from the White House proximity to power because it was important in Frederick Douglass. Who we know as an abolitionist was a businessman who ran that vein. He owned real estate in Baltimore, lots of it. He was worth six and a half million dollars in eighteen sixty five. Change. He put up ten thousand dollars to to keep the band going in eighteen sixty five which is twenty million dollars today. The Bank fails, and it was said the ferry. This bay did more to set free slaves in America back in America back the ten more years of slavery. And then you pop your fingers making sixty five seventy four the banks failed eighteen seventy four your Bank was founded all the way to nine hundred sixty eight when not an economist not a businessman, but a preacher named Dr Martin Luther King junior lost the poor people's campaign in Memphis, Tennessee, and it was about taking poor whites. More poor whites America then and today than anybody else. Poor whites for after Americans, Asians, Indians others, and he said, this you cannot legislate goodness can pathologic for someone to respect you the only way to social Justice and the capitalist countries economics and ownership. That's a quote, you don't know about Dr king, but he was killed April sixty eight before his first March. So it's not like, he's my point. It's not like black folks and Broncos got the memo on money and screwed it up. Just never got the memo every time somebody tried. They were and I decided to finish what Lincoln it and to finish what Dr king dreamed of. And so we were successful in getting the treasury department and the White House to rename the treasury annex building the Freemen's bang building two years ago because that's where the Bank was located. So you Google on your phones. Now, you'll find him the only American citizen to ever rename a White House building and to make that real we decided to put hope inside on the ground in Bank branches.
