Did Twitter's Top Lawyer Cry Over Elon Musk Deal?

"Vijaya got a is the chief lawyer at Twitter. This is the woman who was responsible for kicking Trump off the platform. This is also the woman who suppressed the Hunter Biden story. A very powerful attorney at Twitter. She's been a Twitter a long time, and she's in charge of the whole content moderation operation. Well, delightful report yesterday and political Twitter's top lawyer reassures staff cries during meeting about Musk takeover. She's crying. Oh, it's horrific. It's horrible. Now let's pause for a moment to think about this. She's not crying because she is being restricted. She's not crying because any of her friends are being restricted or suppressed. She's crying because she's being prevented from restricting and banning other people. In other words, this is not the weeping of the victim. It's the weeping of the perpetrator. Kind of reminds me of the scene in The Shawshank Redemption. You remember that vicious prison guard who would beat people up and enjoyed it, took a certain kind of sadistic pleasure in it. But when he's busted at the end of the movie, they go suddenly this big strong man is reduced to tears. Well, that's basically the political vijaya God is the political equivalent of this guy. And if you remember, this is a woman I've mentioned on the podcast before. She came up with a fabulous fabulous here in the sense of made up. Story about her family's encounter with the KKK. And I went into podcast one 8, but yeah, you know what? Give me the contact information. I'll verify it. Whether this story is true, dead silence, not a word. Why? 'cause she was obviously trying to get some civil rights points for herself and make it sound like she's some budding Martin Luther King and her family was like struggling for racial justice in the style of Montgomery and Selma.

Donald Trump Hosts Successful Rally in North Carolina

"Another Saturday night. Another big Trump rally this time in Selma, North Carolina. Biden is willfully opening the floodgates to a tidal wave of illegal immigration, the likes of which the world has never seen before, no country, no country, has this ever happened to. He's deliberately inciting a mob of millions and millions of foreign nationals to illegally infiltrate America's borders, violate our laws, trample our sovereignty and settle in our country. Frankly, it's an invasion. You can call it whatever you want, but this is an invasion, just like an army would invade another country. It's like he has to start all over again, right? It's almost like he's coming down that golden escalator all over again. He's beginning his campaign. He's laying out the groundwork for why America needs four more years of Trump and as I like to dream 12 years of Trump desantis.

How Did Dinesh Conceive the Idea for '2016: Obama's America'?

"I did mention Debbie. My name is Austin and I'm an aspiring filmmaker from Georgia. My writing partner and I bring some projects, but we're most excited about a conservative show concept. We'll finalizing this word. From a story standpoint, it compares the analogies of the famous books warnings to the current reality of the United States. Anyway, we would love to know how did you conceive the idea to make 2016 Obama's America with no filmmaking experience and how did you get those who are willing to help you make it such as funding, filmmaking, et cetera, because we're looking for that up to. Well, in my case, the idea of making the film arose out of a book that I had already published called the roots of Obama's rage. So I felt that I had a powerful new insight into Obama. And that would be intriguing as a film. Now, the conventional view of Obama was he was kind of a civil rights guy. He came out of the kind of tradition of Selma and Montgomery, the Martin Luther King tradition. And my point was no. Obama, it's not that he was born abroad, but he comes from a foreign perspective. He is absorbed, if you will, the dreams of his father. So I thought this was an interesting topic to be able to convert into a movie, although I didn't quite know how that would be done. As it turns out, a movie is a journey, and I would have to go to Hawaii and Indonesia, Kenya, and kind of track down almost physically the Obama story. But once I got the idea, I realized that, you know, I'm not on the left. I'm not like Michael Moore. I can't go marching into a studio and collect $10 million and say, okay, I'm going to make a movie now. So on our side, you've got to sort of build it out from the ground

"Physician and epidemiologist. She tracked the first known cases of aids in San Francisco, and is remembered as an early hero of the aids epidemic. Please welcome doctor Selma dritz. Selma was born on June 29th, 1917 in Chicago. She had a brief career as a concert pianist before shifting gears and attending the University of Illinois for medical school. She practiced as a pediatrician until she took a leave to raise her three children. In 1967, Selma earned a master's degree from UC Berkeley's school of public health. She was then hired to work for the San Francisco health department. As the assistant director for the bureau of communicable disease control, she tracked outbreaks of food poisoning, flu, and hepatitis. In the early 1980s, some became aware of a new medical mystery. Young men and predominantly gay neighborhoods were dying from an unusual form of pneumonia. She also recorded rising cases of a skin cancer called kaposi's sarcoma, which was mysteriously affecting the same population. Alongside the director of her bureau, doctor Irwin braff, Selma attracted cases and shared the information with the federal CDC. Her findings contributed to some of the first clear data of what would later be known as the aids epidemic. Little was known about the disease at the time. When Selma was first investigating, aids didn't yet have a name. It hadn't even been identified as a virus. Doctors weren't sure how the disease was transmitted. And to make matters worse, rampant homophobia prevented adequate research and sufficient care for patients in need. Selma stood out for her methodical and caring approach. She later said, I tried to make it clear that my job was to stop this disease, and I didn't care what they did in bed in the bushes or anywhere else. My job was simply to see that they didn't get sick. In Selma search to understand how and where the disease was spreading. She went into nightclubs and bath houses. Eventually helping others to see that the disease was sexually transmitted. She's credited today as one of the first people who suggested that aids was a sexually transmitted infectious disease. On top of her tracing work, she also educated the community about the risks of the disease. She was close with many of her patients often counseling them about safe sex. Despite her efforts, San Francisco became an epicenter of the aids epidemic. More than 20,000 people in San Francisco alone have died of aids. Selma was deeply frustrated with the pace of the government's response. And she rightfully cited stigma as a key reason why that was the case. She told a reporter in 1993, those who prevented an effective response in the early days deserves some strong hammer strokes. We've made some progress, but if we could have moved more quickly a decade ago, things would not be as bad as they are now. In 1987, journalist Randy Schultz chronicled Selma's role in tracking and identifying aids. As part of a nonfiction book called and the band played on. When the book was turned into a film a few years later, Selma was played by Lily Tomlin. Selma passed away on September 3rd, 2008, at the age of 91. As we currently live through a pandemic Salma's legacy is a reminder of the compassion, care and methodical determination we need to stop the spread and care for one another. All month we're highlighting women who made important contributions to the world.

The Origin of the Elgin Marbles

"Greece in the early part of the nineteenth century wasn't yet an independent country. It had been under the rule of the ottoman empire since the mid fifteenth century and this was the geopolitical situation in athens in eighteen. O one thomas. Bruce seventh earl of elegant was appointed as the ambassador extraordinary and minister. Plenipotentiary of his britannic majesty to the sublime port of selma third sultan of turkey prior to arriving in the ottoman empire. He asked the british government if they were interested in. Hiring artists can make drawings and take plaster casts of the sculptures at the parthenon. The british government was in no way interested. However even if the government wasn't interested. Thomas bruce still was so using his own funds. He hired a team of artists to document. The artwork found at the parthenon so far all of his plans for documenting. What was at the parthenon. We're perfectly fine. If he had just stuck to this. I probably be doing an episode today about something else. however he didn't didn't just stick to documenting the artwork. He soon began removing whatever sculptures that he could in total he took twenty one full statues fifteen meta panels which are carver. Tabular architectural pieces and a full seventy five meters of the parthenon frieze which decorated the upper interior of the parthenon. All of this marble sculpture was sent them all. To and then to england they became known as the elgin marbles named after the earl of elegant and because they were all made out of marble they are also known as the parthenon marbles. This was all done at the personal expense of the earl. At a cost of seventy four thousand two hundred and forty pounds or what today would be worth five million pounds or about six point eight million dollars.

The 2021 Oscars' Best Original Song Nominees

"Get to this year's oscar nominated songs in a minute but before we weigh in on those songs and their chances. Stephen can you talk a little bit about the common themes we've seen from some of the oscar winners and nominees of the last few years. Well each year this category has been a different kind of mixed bag. Depending on what sort of movies are coming out. In a given year you often have a song or more from disney musical. You often have a song from a big blockbusters like all stars from black panther from a couple years ago. Big songs from big movies often wind up making their way into these nominations. And then they'll be mixed in with. Sometimes it's a song you've never heard of by an artist you've never heard of from a movie you've never heard of so. It really is a very very mixed bag from year to year with some recurring themes diane. Warren is very often nominated as a songwriter very often. Especially in recent years. You have a lot of songs that i call for lack of a better term. Glory corn so named for the song. Glory by common and john legend from movie. Selma a few years ago songs that play over the closing credits of movies about social justice all of which have titles that kind of together to form this. I will rise and fight and raise my voice to stand for you and so this year is a little bit of an unusual year for a bunch of obvious reasons. Many of them related to the pandemic. You didn't have a big disney musical so you didn't have a let it go into the unknown big disney banger. And you didn't have a lot of blockbusters you didn't have for example. No time to die. The james bond movie which had a theme song by billie eilish which came out which was pretty well received. And i think would have been a shoe in at least to be nominated and probably win. Had the movie actually come out and thus been eligible so that has kind of opened this year's field to what has turned out to be a whole lot of glory.

It was nonviolence. There were a couple of times where things felt like they were going to escalate a little bit. There was a group there called nine seven freedom, which is kind of right wing and fringy There were some clansman there which actually kinda shocked me. Wow And the. Really put them in their place.

I can't remember exactly how they put it But I was like no. The women's march was bigger, but I almost think the women's. March doesn't qualify as protests maybe. You know I just think this is so colossal because it's, it's ongoing. Yeah, and it's huge and it's happening in the middle of a pandemic and. Yeah it's pretty crazy, yeah! It has a lot of shades of Selma Lake as I was watching Selma. Research so many parallels. So I've got to tell you that one of the things that Selma did for me and this is my next thing on my.

So you gotta look out for her. You gotta watch out for her and take care of her dad. I'm for. What am I gonna do? My dad was born in Selma Alabama in eighteen ninety six his mother and father had nine kids. And he was the youngest one at the time when he ran away. My dad ran away from home when he was twelve he told me that when he got to be about ten years old. He got a paper route in Selma around in his neighborhood. And he made like fifty cents a month and every month when he got paid. There was this white boy who was about seventeen years old who'd be waiting for him to take his fifty cents Natal. Gimme that fifty cents. You won't give it to me on going to whip your butt. And he said the first couple of times he didn't want to give it to the guy the guy who does. But and he said he had older brothers. But he didn't want to tell us older brothers because so many Bama early nineteen hundreds. You don't want to get your older brothers tarred and feathered or lynched or anything like that. So he's never told anybody and one day he had a nickel, and he said he bought one of those boy scout knives, you know, one has a can opener and. This and that and all that on it. And at the end of the month when he got paid is fifty cents. He said the boy was standing awaiting give me that fifty cents. He said, no, I'm not going to give you my money today. You'll give me the money. I'm gonna take it. He said, we're just gonna have to take it. So he said the boy jumped on him, and he took the knife out. And started stabbing the Boyne eggs voice started crying phone and ground us breeding and all that and he started to run home. And he said on the way home he thought about he said, if I go home, they're gonna come, and perhaps they might launch my entire family. So I gotta get outta here. So he ran to the railroad track. He got on a freight train hopped on a freight train and never looked back. He never spoke to or saw anyone in his family from that moment on he's twelve. I can't even imagine that I so much love, and so much empathy in so much respect for him. After I found that out. The day that my mom passed. I will never forget it. It's vivid in my mind. Like it happened yesterday. Really she'd been sick then she'd been in bed for a few days at that point. And I'm getting ready to go to school, and I wanted to her bedroom just say by mossy you when I come home, and she says chimera baby and she takes me in her arms. She says I want you to be a good boy. Okay. Mom, be a good. Boy. Good boy in school almost you pick. A boy, why should always be a good boy. And I want you to love God. And I want you to just be a good boy. Okay, fine. So I go to school about maybe noon. My teacher calls me up to her desk. And she says you got to go home.
