Thank you for giving us Sidney Powell. Linwood Mayor Giuliani. Jennifer. I can't think of her last name That's helping him. I was watching last night and in Michigan, and it's amazing the amount of evidence they have and the people that are sitting there up on the stage that of the legislators that are supposed to take a pay attention to what's going on. They're half of them are kind of going. Oh, boy. Wow. And the other half are going. What's your name? What's your name? Spell your name for me.

Okay. David Sydney bow. So here's the thing I want to say before we get to Sydney, pal. That what they are doing is so critical. I mean, this is one of the most historic things we've seen, actually in our time. And because they're speaking to human beings that have souls. And those souls air crying out. All of our souls are crying out for the right thing for justice. For relief from this insanity and this is what occurs to me is that there is no other creature on earth like the human being, in the sense that all the other creatures have instinct. We have the spirituality at the core of who we are. And when we see what's happening, we see the terrible lies and the manipulation from the media, the communist change agents that have infiltrated and the people who have joined them. Our souls hurt. Our souls are in pain. And when we hear people like Linwood standing up for what's right with strength and with conviction, you hear people and especially someone like Sydney Pal who went first to fight for General Flynn. And that wicked judge that wouldn't let him off the hook. Finally, our great president Trump pardoned him. Thank God So now you're gonna hear Sydney, pal. And I want you to savor this because it's important. Play it. Thank you. Thank.
The people behind tonight's 60 Minutes
"Listen to what. Chris griggs said on sixty minutes last night. There's no foreign power that is flipping votes. There's no domestic actor flipping votes. I'd better right. We did it right. This was a secure election tonight. Joe digenova who used to be in the nineteen ninety a reasonably respected washington lawyer has collapsed into the point of an i mean mentally collapsed to the point where he said tonight that chris krebs who we just saw. There should be taken out at dawn and shot Now that's the kind of thing that's going to get you disbarred. Possibly in washington dc. And who knows what's gonna be left to rig juliani law license when this is over obviously calling for someone to be shot calling for violence on someone is reprehensible and the idea is that this is part of this. This is what happens when conspiracy theories get out of hand and where you have someone like the president who is has a big bully pulpit a big powerful voice as being president of the united states amplifying and spreading conspiracy theories you have people in lockstep with the president saying crazy things now of course the president is not said that christopher crabs could be shot. That's clear at least for now but what we do know. Is that the people around president. They've all been saying things they're just simply don't make sense. I mean you think about really guiliani and saying that there are dead people voting. You think about Sidney powell saying that there's some sort of venezuelan conspiracy theory and that the venezuelans are behind. Why why the government didn't wasn't able to to have an election with integrity. All of these things are false. This idea that you're calling for christopher comes to be shot is really scary but it just the tip the iceberg so many people who find themselves on the other side of president trump we we all in some ways understand that there is there violent intent behind this you think the fact that these election workers that are just simply counting the votes simply doing their jobs. They are getting death threats. They're having to hire security to to protect themselves. These scary times. And i think that the president Some of this the bucks in some ways talks with the president and his own language but of course that person saying that christopher crevice should be shot that's of course going even farther than president. Trump has gone so we'll have to just watch that space to see what actually happens in that case a on when we look at The trump sorry the biden white house staff announcement today. A jen psaki for example as white house press secretary. That just a typifies. What we're seeing in all of these choices. Joe biden's basically going to people who have already proved they can do these jobs. And many of whom have done a version of these jobs in the past and some in the campaign. And when you imagine a jen. Psaki ron white house. Press briefing room starting january twenty first That is a return to normal. That would have been forgotten If the trump presidency had continued essentially valid point in in some respects. The hiring of jen psaki and the other people on that. Communications team is so unremarkable. Because these are just sorta standard. I'll be very accomplished. In extremely capable professionals in dc on the other hand the point of we have is this current administration which has turned the briefing room into essentially a a chance to spread donald trump propaganda. That is not tethered to reality And so what we have to do. We have to adjust our expectations. I don't want to like lower. The bar too much for gen. No she can clear it but you know we need to have a return of normalcy of backs of information a big In the briefing room. Because that's not just a chance for the president to get his word out. It's a chance for the american public to understand what the machinations of government are doing and what they're taxpayer-funded representatives are doing. And i hope that you know jen appreciates that mission reinstates it and like you said it shouldn't be a remarkable higher but there is a huge task ahead of her not just in advancing clients interest in this case the president but in restoring very either of trust that i think is instrumental to the functioning democracy quickly. Before you go you'll be in that white house. Press briefing room with jen psaki. What do you anticipate Starting january twenty first in that room for why anticipate actual briefings which we have not seen regularly with the trump administration. I expect someone who's gonna come to the pulpit and the accurate and be fair Obviously offering defenses of president-elect fighting then president biden and we're going to of course have tense exchanges. Reporters are always going to be pushing wanting more information. But i think there's going be a level of respect that has not been there in the last four years both with her treating reporters in screaming at them. Criticizing them in the way that we've seen with the trump administration you michelle cinder and sam stein. Thank you very much restoring off our discussion really appreciate it. thank you both.

How Plants Fight Disease
"The microbial world and to my listeners. Probably the most. Famous interactions are the mike arousal associations or maybe some of the bacteria that form in the knowledgeable lls and help fix nitrogen but there is a wide spectrum. Oftentimes pathogenic interactions between plants and microbes. So what made you go sort of the pathogenic or at least like disease route with them. Tie back to where. I kind of realized that when they get sick they actually died and when they died. Then there's less moves go around the world that means prices will go up and that means people that are less fortunate probably not gonna be able to bottles plants or bottles products eventually and it just kind of tie back to where i wanted to katina help others. So it's still tana original passionate helping others. i'm just doing it at a bigger in a much broader implant. That's really cool. Yeah and thinking about sort of all of the threats we face with climate change and just habitat loss. And you know everything. We're going through society right now. Understanding how plants are going to either survive. Stressed out or die has huge impacts across the board whether you're an ecologist worried about conservation or the idea of like food security and just getting people with their right to have access to good food. All of this can tie back to plants on some level and really that stressor. It's not like they're all just gonna fry because it's too hot out a lotta times. They're getting stressed and dealing with a lot of other stuff. Which is where your research. A lot of your research comes in so you mentioned They have similar ways of fighting disease but not exactly because their plants. They're not animals and so let's think about how plants interact with microbes. Do plants have and immune system on a broad spectrum. Is it anything akin to like what we have so. Am i get some backlash for this. But i go hanley. Okay always been. That's always been this debate whether plants have immune system and i some people like to use it I don't like it at all. Okay just put a bad. That they don't have white blood cells. They don't have antibodies. They don't have this like adaptive immunity like we do. I don't really consider that as amused. Glance what. I like to call that. Halfway is planning needs. So they have immunity something. They have components that they made themselves the fan against grows okay but they don't really have that adaptive like components that you will call an immune system so i think If we want to go down with differences so plants and humans One thing they do have in common is they both. Have these receptor like proteins or something that helps them to chat micros. Okay so the way. That dataset microsoft similar invoke lanson mammals. The difference with the malians is Wadis components that water similar allow these receptors are intracellular and Mammals while plans are intracellular. So they stay outside of plant sale and they perceive those microbial related is cool now thinking about all of the different sorts of microbes that can cause an issue for a plan. I mean there's bacteria viruses fungi. I mean does the response. Sort of differ depending on. What's coming in or is it. Just kind of all lumped in and sort of the mechanisms of detection might have some variants. Or where does it begin depending on. What kind of micro talking about here. And i think that's what kind of Fascinate me about this. Feel is like Depending on what the pathogen is or what motive of affection is doing like you get a totally different defense mechanism front of land. So let's say bacteria for example That's half jello. So that receptor. Or the estrogen receptor of plants dakin that said a certain points of jello or from some better and when they detect that part of on they send like a sidney lynne halfway or finland was biased. Light through the plant sales down the activate a defense response or to defend ourselves against the pathogens. So that's like the plant site first response to it But bacteria what they have evolved to do as they had these small proteins or relatively small proteins call factors and these factors what they can do. They can kind of turn off that plants. Though plans they try and go for gel on. They'll try to turn the pathway on and a bacterial cells secrete of that. There's an plant sale and l. Shut off that halfway. Jeez yeah no and that allows the bacteria to continue to invade the vet the planned sale with some cases plant sales. They of all some of these Resistant genes components which are located intra zillur so when arafat their turns off there signaling pathways. You have somebody's resistant. Genes that can detect those offenders and entered on this really robust defense response to kind of just get rid of packaging and so it's just this back and forth on race between planning micros is kinda fascinated with and i'm so glad you said the arms race analogy because that's all i was thinking of is like it's like tit for tat. Every new thing that one develops the other one kind of has two counter end to think that you know obviously there are different players nowadays but this is something that's probably been going on. Ever since plants evolved are crawled onto the land with their roots. And to think of all of the ways. This has been going on through time. It's just this constant change evolutionary pressure to just constantly be going back and forth with these potential pathogens and the ways you can fight them. That is so cool. Yeah i mean it's still kinda going still going on to this day like they're still evolving is still trump

"Will address the latest on the Georgia suitcases and and that new Claim 808 01 That's coming up. 808 01 89 99 is how you get on the program now Speaking of Georgia What I want to focus on right now. Is the Senate seats in Georgia, and we've talked about this. Is there any possibility that Allies. The president Trump are trying to tank The Senate runoff elections. In Georgia. Let's dive in here. Also, there's some polling That it's showing where things stand between the Democrat candidates and the Republican candidates in the ever important run off on January 5th. In the Peach state in Georgia. So I'll get to that as well. I'll do this on the tailing but first Are there Trump allies that trying to tank The Senate elections. The special election in Georgia Buyer in New York, the conservative writer Byron, New York's newsletter today. In the conservative Washington Examiner. Bluntly asks the question. Making Republicans, especially Mitch McConnell. Extremely nervous, right? What's this nervousness about? Are Trump allies trying to sabotage the GOP. In Georgia. Now, after stunning Absolutely George dropping remarks. Regarding Sidney Powell and L. Lin Wood's performance yesterday in Al Ferretti, Georgia. Outside of Atlanta. It's a fair question. Our allies of Trump trying to tank the Senate run offs, folks, the Republicans must retain those two seats. It is essential. Now it was billed as a stop the steel rally. And in her speech, Sidney Powell, who has turned into just a nut case. Yes. Oh, So nothing That the president had her thrown off of the legal team. All right, we have so here, we'll just take a snapshot here. The president still doesn't want to let go, although there's no proof of any substantial fraud that would change this election. And even the president's Attorney General Bill Bar, one of the most supportive attorney general's that a president ever had. After Bill Barr said that earlier this week and of course that is raised Trump, Sire Trump is totally pissed. He wants Bill Barda save rigged fraud Landslide for Trump Biden's illegitimate That's what the president wants Bill Bar to say So Bill Bar is a clear Democrat trader, Rhino. Because he won't say that even though he has no proof of it, that's really where we are. And if Bill Bar had proof I am confident that he would say We've got big problems here. We've got fraud. And I would be Screaming at the top of my lungs on this radio program in support of Trump and support of Bill Bar and whatever findings they have, But I can't do that on just hyperbole, Speculation and just a whole lot of clamor and a whole lot of noise. Just Can't do that, You know, fax kind of matter. Not hyperbole, not speculation. But the point is, is that Trump who is still screaming fraud and that he wanted the landslide. Trump. Had Rudy Giuliani get rid of Sidney Powell because she was even too nutty for him. With the claims and knew that she was not a good look for the trump legal fight. Put that into context. If she was that good and had such amazing information. Why wasn't Sidney Powell retained on the Trump legal team run by Rudy Giuliani. He's a no brainer, folks. This is a very valid question. Trumps the one that said, get rid of her. Well, she's she's a liability. That's why I coined too nutty even for Rudy. The Sydney power. So In the speech that Sidney Powell delivered yesterday and Al Ferretti, Georgia, She expanded on her theory that Dominion machines were used to change millions of votes. From President Trump. Provided But now the new twist here is that Sidney Powell Is putting Morrell emphasis on China. Saying that we've already traced a lot of the money. That did this back to China. Uh, you know me, folks, I don't give China one millimeter. Of I've been yelling and warning and screaming about China now for almost two decades on this program And what I have espoused opined has come to fruition. With the Chinese intellectual property theft there build up of their military their nuclear assets. Their naval assets. Submarines, nuclear side Me, you name it. And a lot of that was stolen from us and the Chinese are on Lee where they are because they've ripped us off senseless. They have raped us. The Chinese government Kami Chinese You will not see me give any shred of slack to the Chinese. They are an existential threat to this country. There is no doubt about it. So here we have Sydney power now putting more on China and what I'd like to see proof of this. Absolutely. Please again filled with the money, But we have outlandish claims are being made. But there never seems to be any bonified proof. On these allegations that come out of Sydney Powell's Mouth. Or maybe other parts of her. Body is well where some of these statements appear to be coming from. Then she went off on another tangent. She said that the food is a quote now. The fraud exists in the DNI a of all the software that was run by any voting system in the country. So they all are at risk of having been manipulated. So essentially, she's not talking to see that not one single voting machine in the USA could be trusted. Even though you have in many cases, the paper ballots. Reconciled with the Elektronik counting, so the hard copy of the actual ballots. Where people were filling in little circles on those can't runs. You have a paper trail. In virtually all of the elections in this country, you have a paper trail to support the digital trail. Where you coming up with this stuff. I mean, it's just a nonstop conveyor belt here. And if this was valid if President Trump had any faith in Sidney Powell Why did he have her ejected from his legal team? Like I said, too crazy for Rudy. And that is a feat. Of fairly monumental proportions here. Wow. So no voting machine. The USA could be trusted. Now, she said that she had experts who could explain it. Now explaining it is not proving it and this continues to be dangerous. This continues to be nuts. Were you? We saw conspiracies and nothing new folks. Conspiracy theories, one of the early ones that I was aware of as a kid. Woz that many people didn't believe we landed on the moon. My grand parents had a housekeeper. Remember these conversations? I was a little kid. Remember some of these conversations? I granted the 1969. I was only three years old. I don't remember that. But I remember subsequent conversations. Probably when I was 67 years old. But I remember the family discussing it. That this good friend of theirs on an employee of theirs just totally didn't think that we landed on the moon. So conspiracy theories. That's one of the early ones that I was aware of his Ah, little Smith. And, of course, conspiracy theories. They're a dime. A dozen One of the big ones was 9 11 and the loose change videos that appeared on YouTube online. Now that we make a lot of mistakes, allowing 9 11 happened, we Dick And a lot of that was the interagency problems. The fact that the multiple agencies in this country had the so called wall and couldn't communicate and share data. Otherwise, maybe 9 11 would have been prevented. Or actually, maybe a Bill Clinton had authorized taking out Osama bin Laden when he was spotted numerous times by drones, and they could have taken him out. Prior. They could have taken him. I think in 1999 they had a clean shot. Of Osama bin Laden. And they wouldn't pull the trigger. The Clinton administration would not pull the trigger on taking out bin Laden. If they had. Maybe 9 11 wouldn't happened..

GOP starting to tell Trump it's over: "Stop golfing and concede"
"Certified elections in battleground states. Like Pennsylvania, Michigan in Georgia, But they do continue just the same Maryland Republican governor Larry Hogan this about the president's efforts to change the election outcome or beginning to look like we're a banana republic. The president fired back at Hogan Tweeting. This Republican in name only will never make the grade to which Hogan responded. Stop golfing and concede correspondent Chip Reid. And then there is this. Last week, President Trump spelled out the names of his legal team in all of this. Now his campaign says One member of it is not a member at all Attorney Sidney Powell, who claimed that a long dead Venezuelan dictator was a major factor in Mr Trump's election loss.
Giuliani distances Trump campaign from attorney Sidney Powell
"Trump's campaign is distancing itself from a lawyer who appeared to be representing Trump's efforts to challenge the election. The campaigns, said. Sidney Powell isn't a member of the Trump legal team and isn't representing Trump in his personal capacity. I will appeared alongside Rudy Giuliani at a press conference last week to raise baseless claims of a widespread voting fraud conspiracy. The president previously said Powell, along with Giuliani were part of his team to challenge the election results.
Rudy Giuliani and President Trump's legal team continue to undermine the election
"Yesterday there was a presser with Trump's legal team talking about where they are in questioning election results in in several states. And you know them all very well. Here's Rudy Giuliani and what he had to say. This really stood out yesterday. We can not allow these crooks because that's what they are to steal an election from the American people they elected Donald Trump. They didn't elect Joe Biden. Joe Degenova legal analyst, former U. S attorney to the District of Columbia, a member of the Trump campaign legal team. His wife, Victoria, Tensing, also a member of that team, and you saw them yesterday there with Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellison. Some others, Joe, Thank you for joining us this morning. Good. Great to be here. So, Joe, obviously a lot of questions from yesterday, But I think the question that I walked away from this with as I thought. There were a lot of very compelling arguments that were made. But yet I heard from the left that that that presser did not answer their questions and left a lot of people walking away saying, Okay. What Now? What? What did you What was the point of it? What did you want to prove in? Do you think you proved that? Well, First of all, I don't care what the left says about yesterday. That's number one. If we were to listen to them, we'd never get anything done number one. Let's let's just get a little perspective here before everybody loses their brain power in 2020. We had one state in Bush v. Gore. 2020. We have 6 to 8 states that we have to deal with. I took daunting task, but it is doable. Now, let's just step back for a second. And look what happened on election night. Election night. Donald Trump has a massive lead. He's on his way. And then all of a sudden everything stops around midnight, and in the key battleground states, the counting stops it stops. And at that point, we asked. Well, what happened? Why is that happening? And the answer is that point Something was afoot. As Sherlock Holmes used to say the game is afoot. Now, why did it stop? It stopped because it had to, because once they saw how much Mr Biden needed to win, they needed to get to put in place a plan which had existed to allow him to win. Now I want a completely associate myself. With everything that Rudy Giuliani said yesterday This election was stolen from the president of the United States, and that's the job that he has assigned Those of us who were on the legal team to fix and that is exactly what we're about to do. Just we are supposed to believe that in these six states Everything happened at the same time by accident that this is just an act of God. It is fate that it is a coincidence. Well, in my opinion, it is a coincidence with a purpose on the purpose was to stop. To figure out from the computers what you needed to win and then to get those numbers and that's exactly what was done. Now we have affidavits, hundreds and hundreds of affidavits. That's what Victoria and I Have been doing over the last two weeks now, and that is finding witnesses talking to them, interviewing them and getting them to give sworn underscore. Warn affidavits or declarations to be used in courts of law. Now, the reaction yesterday at the news conference was really fascinating. When you stand up there, and you look out at this sea of reporters, mostly unfriendly, with a few exceptions. The nature of the questions is so stupid and uninformed and offensive. It's just remarkable for anybody to suggest the journalism lives. Now they have to be in some sort of cave. But you know what? It makes the fight even better to do. Because it's one thing to have to fight the other side. But it's another thing to have to fight almost the entire mainstream media and so that's what we're doing. We have great confidence in our legal team. And we've given these to the statistical analyses that are being done in the expert witnesses who are executing affidavits about the incredible anomalies. In the numbers that they are statistically impossible to be what are being represented to the public. I have no doubt that we will get a fair chance in federal courts and maybe in some state courts to prove our case, but we have time. And but again, this is in 2000 with one state. This is 2020 was 68 states. It's not easy, but it's being done and I want to congratulate everybody on the legal team. These people are working 24 hours a day with little sleep, no pay and are doing a marvelous job.

"Was the democrats parachute. They realized in the final forty eight to seventy two hours of the campaign. the president donald trump was on pace to get convincingly re-elected. None of what. I'm saying right now would be factual it would be all just conjecture if it wasn't for the incredible overwhelming surprise. Stunning house results. Now what's the significance of the house results and will actually be able to find out a lot more about this as soon as these states. Start to release their precinct data. Because then we'll be able to go precinct by precinct which right now we can only go county by county. Certain states are releasing their precinct data. Soon some already have because then we'll be able to go congressional district by congressional district. Remember the founding fathers actually wanted presidents to be elected based on congressional district originally leaving it to the states but be at every congressional district voted for president and that was their singular electoral similar to how nebraska does it. And then we'll be able to see actual precinct by precinct data not just county by county data. We'll be able to zero in exactly where a lot of this a regularity and manipulation very well might have been concentrated. You see president. Donald trump executed a surprise red soon. Nami country despite being outspent lied about having every single activist news network against him. The tech companies the corporate elites the wall street bankers not only did mitch mcconnell. Do better in the us senate he did convincingly better and they flipped a senate seat in alabama lost only two incumbents nate silver who gets paid millions of dollars to lie to. You said that it's almost a guaranteed facts that the democrats will take back control of the united states senate thom tillis won convincingly steve daines won convincingly lindsey graham won by double digits mitch mcconnell one by double digits joni ernst one and john james lost very narrowly as of the recording this program however with very interesting is how john james.

Who does not do many media interviews said something that he probably would have said in a closed door meeting to millions of people chuck schumer admitted that there's a super structure that exists in our country. Chuck schumer said that there is something more powerful than our democratic institutions that there is. An unknown unelected unchecked branch of government. That's supposed to only do things overseas. But they might come after you. If you're a duly elected president play cut seventy-six you take on the intelligence community. They have six ways from sunday at getting back at you. So for a practical supposedly hard-nosed businessman. He's being really dumb to do this and this again. The context of that when president trump was just tweeting against the i this one president trump was president. Elect he didn't have any sort of authority or powered. Actually do anything about the central intelligence agency. Just tweeting about the cia and schumer's trying to say hey donald you've contributed to my campaign before you're not doing the right thing here by challenging the agency and the cia has done many different things across the planet nefarious activities that have been uncovered by phenomenal journalists. grand greenwald. Why i don't agree with everything i think. He's been terrific lately. Many other people that have uncovered the activities of the central intelligence agency. Now what does that have to do with the election. Results with sydney powell mentioned yesterday on television alongside general mcnerney on our program that the cia developed this hammer and scorecard. I asked the general directly last evening. Are you trying to tell me that. The cia developed this internationally using this domestically and general mcinerney who has served our country from multiple decades the highest level security clearance in our country said. That's exactly what's happening. Sydney powell said that smart matic was used all across the world for the purposes of the central intelligence agency and so we know what the intelligence communities are willing to do to defeat donald trump. We know that they spied on his campaign. They launched a phony special investigation. The mueller investigation. They tried to impeach him by listening to his phone. Call think about that. They listen to his phone call and they happen to have someone by the name of schmendrick shelhah the whistle blower. Who said. i don't like this phone call. Let's impeach him after the mullahs report. Fizzled out and it wasn't what they hope that would be by impeaching the president with adam schiff in charge. The democrats leaned on their relationship with the intelligence community.

'The Writing On The Wall' Finds Poetry Behind Bars, Projects It Onto Buildings
"The wall takes the words of incarcerated people beyond prison and jail walls. The project began small but gained new visibility through projections of the writer's words on the sides of buildings in the U. S and Mexico. John Kayla's reports that it is a collaboration between a conceptual artist, a college professor and those whose words they want to share. Devon Simmons served 15 years in New York prisons lens hanging off the tree limbs. Skeletons of these two range in strange fruits with strong braided brownstone. Intrigued by envy, he reads from a poem by Carl Burn hard that is part of the writing on the Wall Project. Simmons graduated from the prison to college Pipeline program, which included a seminar with artist Hank Willis Thomas, one of the co founders of the writing on the Wall. Speaking via Skype, Thomas says working with his incarcerated students sparked the idea of sharing their creative output with those on the outside is a eureka moment. Look at all the wisdom look at all the heart that is imprisoned in our society. There was a huge hypocrisy or irony that I thought we could and should be focusing on There was so much poetry and there just so much beauty drawings, thoughts so much reflection of humanity. That's Bozz Dries ing, the other co founder of the writing on the wall. She also founded the Incarceration Nations Network, a coalition of prison reformers, and she teaches English at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Technically, I was teaching English classes. But really, I was teaching criminal justice through the lens of humanities. And that to me is what the writing on the wall is. The idea for the project came winds rising. There show Thomas some of the writing she's been given by incarcerated people. Two enlisted architects to design mobile installation move that resembled a prison cell with the words of the incarcerated on the walls, floor and ceiling. The idea was to take the booth two cities around the U. S and Canada. But after it's New York debut, the tour was cancelled by the pandemic in prison by covert Bye, Mr Roland Davis. We were taken over by a virus, more cities in any terrorist attack. As the days and weeks turn into months, Americans locked themselves into their homes and fear of what was to come. We? We had to lock inside our cages because it was the safest place for us to be. With the tour cancelled. The organizer's got the idea of projecting those words on public buildings, often ones that are part of the criminal justice system. They enlisted a company called Chemistry Creative to come up with a projection system. The last installation was at Brooklyn Public Library Standing outside chemistry. Creative producer Sidney McDonald describes the first projection. Nobody was out on the streets. There was still very strict fans on everything being closed, and nobody actually really sawed in really life besides the people who were there, but the projections on but since then the writing on the wall has been Seen in Detroit, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Washington, DC Columbus, Ohio, in Mexico City again or just Hank Willis Thomas. There is nothing that Eisen artists or anyone could really do or say that was more extraordinary. Them things that these artists were doing as you say. I talk about those artists, and some of them had not thought about themselves artists, but it was clear that they were. One of those artists is divine Simmons, who is now working as a paid curator and tour guide for the project. If you take the time to actually read some of the material is in the installation. You recognize that people
The lie that invented racism
"What is up with US white people? I've been thinking about that a lot the last few years and I know I have company. Look I get it. People of Color have been asking that question for centuries. But I think a growing number of white folks are to. Given what's been going on out there In our country. And notice I said what's up with US white people. Does right now, I'm not talking about those white people. The ones with the swastikas in the hoods and the tiki torches. They are a problem, a threat, the perpetrate most of the terrorism in our country as you all in Charlottesville better than most. But I'm talking about something bigger more pervasive. Talking about all of us. White folks writ. Large. And maybe especially people sorta like me. self-described progressive. Don't WANNA be. Racist. Goodway people. Any good white people in the room? I was raised to be that sort of person. I was a little kid in the sixties and seventies, and to give you some sense of my parents actual public opinion polls at the time showed that only a small minority about twenty percent of white Americans approved supported. Martin Luther King and his work with the civil rights. Movement. Wild. Dr King was still alive. I'm proud to say my parents were in that group. Race got talked about in our house. And when the show's about the dealt was raised with come on the television, they would sit us kids down made sure we watched the Sidney Poitier movies roots. The message was loud and clear and I got it. Racism is wrong. Racists are bad people. At the same time we lived in a very white place in Minnesota. And I'll just speak for myself I. think that me to believe. that. Those white racists on the TV screen were being beamed in from some other place. Wasn't about US really. Did Not feel implicated. Now I would say I'm still in recovery from that early impression. I. Got into journalism in part because I cared about things like equality. Justice. For a long time racism was just such a puzzle to me. Why is it still with us when it's so clearly wrong. Why such a persistent force. Maybe. I was puzzled because I wasn't yet in the right place or asking the right questions. Have, you noticed that when? People in our mostly white. Media Report on what they consider to be racial issues what we consider to be racial issues what that usually means that we're pointing our cameras and our microphones are gaze at people of Color. Asking questions like. How are black folks or native Americans Latino or Asian Americans how are they doing? In a given community or with respect to some issue, the economy education. I've done. My share of that kind of journalism over many years. But then George Zimmerman killed. Trayvon Martin. Followed by this unending string of high-profile police shootings of armed black people and the rise of the black lives matter movement. dylann roof in the Charleston. Massacre. Oscarssowhite. All the. Incidents from the day to day of American Life. These overtly racist incidents that we now get to see because they're captured on smartphones sent across the Internet. And beneath those visible events the stubborn data studies showing. Systemic racism. Every institution we have. Housing Segregation. Job Discrimination. The deeply racialist inequities in our schools and criminal justice system. And what really did it for me? I know I'm not alone in this either. The RISE OF DONALD TRUMP. And the discovery that a solid majority of white. Americans. would embrace or at least accept. Such a raw bitter kind of white identity politics. This is all disturbing to me as a human being. As a journalist I found myself. Turning the Lens around. thinking. White folks so the story. Whiteness is a story. And also thinking. Can I do that? What would a podcast series about whiteness sound like?

The agent had only just begun to send back reports when he vanished without a trace. See believe I believe the Germans had discovered the spy and killed him now. They needed a replacement Sydney any. Despite the danger was game to prepare for the mission he worked for a few weeks in British welding factory there. He developed developed a competent set of trade skills to back up his new legend. A legend is defined by the international spy museum as a despise claimed background or biography usually supported by documents and memorize details. It is essentially a false identity entity adopted to give a spy credibility in a new environment. Sydney's specialty this time. Sydney created the legend of of Carl. Hahn a German speaking Russian from the city of rave all or Modern Day Talon in Estonia Hans background included employment as a welder in the massive shipyards of Saint Petersburg as Carl Hahn he had little trouble getting a job as a welder in crops growing factory in Essen Germany and Sydney actually did the job working long difficult hours on the plant assembly line for several months in nineteen zero nine but he was simultaneously taking notes for his other job. He noticed that the arms factory had added several new workshops and had plans for more these notes however were not enough enough. He needed copies of the plans to send the London. Getting blueprints and production. Schedules would not be easy as leaving his station on the assembly line would quickly aroused suspicion but Sydney came up with a solution solution. He would volunteer for the factories. Fire brigade the fire crew worked night shifts and patrolled the entire plant Sydney. Use the freedom of this new role to begin making nightly visits to the factory office. Lock pick and flashlight in hand hand but he was faced with another problem. He couldn't take the plans out of the office without raising alarm and he couldn't take photographs offs in the dark. At first he tried tracing the plans on thin paper but the process took far too long then he had an idea he convinced the fire brigade chief. They needed a complete set of plans for the factory to indicate where ear. All the fire extinguishers hydrants were located all the blueprints were copied and moved into the fire chiefs office where Sydney could easily consult them and memorize each page one by one however however his frequent visits to inspect the plans brought questions pretty soon Sydney had to back off. There was Only one tactic left to try. He would simply steal the blueprints and disappear. It was easier said the done once. He stole the plans all of Germany would be looking for him he would have to get out fast so he reached Out to London for help. Sydney bought a train ticket to the city of Dortmund where she had a contact waiting with a new passport. Close in money money then. It was time for action after everyone had gone home for the night. Sydney slipped his lock picks into his pocket in clicked on his flashlight. He approached the fire chiefs office and snuck inside expecting to be in and out within minutes. But the chief life was still there. Sydney quickly adapted. He leaped forward and wrapped his arm around the fire chiefs throat strangling singling him until he felt the man go limp. Sydney dropped him. Grab the stack of critical blueprints and began again. Tearing them into quarters. He stuffed each quarter into a separate envelope he had smuggled in under coveralls. Each one was addressed addressed to a separate contact in London Paris Brussels and Rotterdam this way. Even if one set of the plans were lost in transit. The other three parts would still arrive. Sydney stuff the full envelopes back under his dirty coveralls and made his way to the S. and train station dropping the envelopes in a mailbox before he boarded the train for Dortmund the next day wearing a new suit and carrying a leather briefcase with a crisp British passport. Sydney boarded a train for Paris. He had escaped the while. This story was heavily embellished by Sydney. He returned to London in nineteen eleven. Eleven try on Fendt but see was an interested in celebrations. He was eager to send his most valuable agent back into the field within weeks. Sydney was on his way to Saint Petersburg to gather Intel about Russia's efforts to rebuild its navy adopting the legend of wealthy businessmen Solomon Garrison Bitch. It didn't take Sydney long to strike up friendships. With several high level navy officers boozing and dining with them regularly his mission was long long term and would rely on these relationships all the way. They're small talk helped him fill in the con- tours of Russia's current situation him after the war with Japan the czar had ordered his armada to be rebuilt even bigger than before it was is a massive task that Russian shipyards couldn't possibly handle on their own so the contracts were being sent to German shipbuilders blohm on Voss us due to his fluency in Russian in German has well as his now extensive list of Russian naval contacts Sydney was able to earn a management position in the German companies office in Saint Petersburg as a manager Sydney now had access access to all of the communications and construction plans moving between Russian naval offices and the German factories then Sydney requested access to the blueprints for German ships to other German owners were suspicious of his sudden interest in their ship designs signs but Sydney knew how well ego and vanity could be used to persuade potential assets. He spun a clever story about comparing preparing the lackluster Russian designs with cutting edge. German ships the delighted German owners gave their full cooperation thus Sydney was privy to the technological developments of both the Russian and German navies during the buildup to war over the the next three years and the war was indeed coming by early nineteen fourteen political stability stability on the continent was crumbling in June.

With a native guide to explore the UNMAPPED forest according to Rosenbloom the expedition was ill fated from the start the British explorers knew little of the native tribes or languages linkages had no exposure to the native diseases and were poorly equipped for the heat and humidity.
