"In that time stalin was a particular rival trotsky and eventually when lennon became incapacitated and certainly after lennon died tribes as stalin with those other former comrades of lenin to isolate trotsky they were afraid trotsky too powerful to popular head of the army isolate him remove him from his positions and eventually drive him into exile. There's a fascinating quote where you cite. That were molotov compares lenin and stalin and he said quote in our party. I consider lennon alone to genius. Lennon was superior stalin but no one could surpass stalin as a practical worker party organizer. It's very fascinating that stalin. Who was very different from lennon would come to be his successor. Certainly that is correct. So we know in among marxist party in that marxist party among communists there were theorists and practitioners practically entailed tiki in russian. Stalin was a practic. He was pragmatic party worker. There's a kind of anecdote which is not true. Where lennon says I need someone to go out do such and such a thing and trust he says. Oh i'd love to do it by blood you middle each but you know. I have to write my book on literature and revolution and stalin said. I'll do it. I mean he knew he would have made a great mafia boss or even a chief executive of corporation. He knew how to play the system how to use his advantages his talents. He had feet on the ground. He was practical okay. He wasn't as sophisticated in marxist theory as lennon or a trotsky or hot or other bolsheviks but he he was a tremendous organizer and multi gets it right in the quote that you mentioned and so. He's the one that succeeds within the party. He's the one who gathers people around him. He could express complex issues in very simple focused often very dull language. What does a good politician need sophisticated analyses or simple what we would call you. Know a soundbite of points of view. Just watch the debates now going on and you see that. That's what works. The bumper sticker slogans bumper stickers. Yeah so you. Cover a lot of stalin's private life and there was his first wife. I think it's e cathrine for need. Is that right was i. I needs okay. Could you talk about those relationships. In his private life the ones.

"They set up their own secret reading societies and they assiduously read forbidden texts among them. Darwin marks and i would add russian literature russian novels and other critical tax. Which gave him a kind of humanistic. That is this. World centered education and through reading people. Like darwin and marx. They eventually abandoned religion which was represented by these Rather authoritarian dogmatic clerics who ran the seminary and they turned to a kind of association with what i would call the russian intelligentsia the the radical opposition to czar ism and they went to organize workers to work in the underground political underground and tried to make a revolution. And it's very interesting because when he left seminary You noted that he was a meteorologist for a little. While which i thought was very interesting because the only job he ever got paid for writing was he worked in an observatory and did meteorology right. But what what. What is happening to him was he was reading these texts. Let's say marks so mark's you couldn't get march that easily But they would sign the book in a secret bookstore or from a library somehow and they would copy it very carefully. Overnight and then distributed among themselves and march is a powerful powerful thinker. Marcus work basically was about. I was an analysis of capitalism and many people had when stalin was young thought well russia can avoid capitalism. We can create our own future. Maybe a liberal future may be a peasant socialism or some kind but reading marks People young men like stalin became convinced. That no no you know. Russia has to follow the same path as best we have to go through that crucible of capitalism and then come out the other end and make something called socialism or communism or whatever So you say in the book quote his dominant. Emotion appears to be resentment. The sense that he was of what justly should have been his wall others had more than they deserve. So what did he believe. He was deprived of an. How did he think marxism would.
Trump's new PAC raises over $30 million
"At the conservative. Political action conference in orlando over the weekend. Former president trump was clear. He will not start a new political party to make an end run around the grand old party. He drops strong hints. Though that he might like to run for president again there was interest. Also in rhonda. Santa's the governor of florida and the governor of south dakota kristi noem and trump is still very good at raising money. Marketplace's kimberly adams has that former. President trump never stopped raising money. I he pulled in cash from donors to fight his election loss and since then trump launched a leadership pac that raised over thirty million dollars in just a matter of months. Carl evers hellstrom monitors money in politics for open secrets dot org and he says politicians and groups who align themselves with trump are benefiting as well. The republican party is increasingly. Reliant on trump. actually raise money. so we've seen some. Corporate interests are not as interested in donating to them after the capital riot. Trump's supporters on the other hand still seem game to donate to the president and his allies. There were even rumors after the election. He might start a third political party and what he's done is actually a lot more interesting. Jennifer here. wig political sociologist at suny stony brook. He said okay. I have this kind of asset which is my a fundraising prowess and my donor or less than the ability to connect with people who maybe ordinarily wouldn't donate and so i'm going to use that and turn it into a formal organisation that the gop has to pay attention to and the republican party. Is we know that. President trump is still someone who was wildly popular and someone who was and is an effective fundraiser. Paris denard is a spokesperson for the republican national committee. We are optimistic. That he will continue to be the type of former president that engages in wants to help the rmc.

New York City Public School Seniors Say The Pandemic Is Shaking Up And Slowing Down The College Application Process
"Carlson. New York City public school seniors are now in their second semester, and that's historically a time to take a breath after completing college applications, But some students are still scrambling to submit essays and complete financial aid documents. W. My CI's Jessica Gould reports. That's only one of the ways the pandemic has shaken up the college process this year. Just a few days ago, Joshua Sr was sitting in front of his computer sending in his last college application to Howard University. I can't believe it a school y'all and This my final application. Wow. Yes, Josh goes to Brooklyn Tech, and he's a superstar. He's an a student with high test scores. He loves biology and Mandarin. He always planned to apply to college and the Corona virus didn't change that. But it did make it much harder. There were no campus visits or college fairs. He couldn't pop by his counselor's office to brainstorm. It's very much me in front of my computer like 12 A.m.. The night are in the early morning hours. This like China, think of things and there was no one to look over his shoulder while he filled out financial aid forms. I was so scared. I was gonna mess up Maybe one figure and You like label of fraud or something. But he says the biggest challenge has been juggling all his new responsibilities at home. Josh lives with his father and sisters in bed Stuy. His dad is a property manager who has been working around the clock since March. So Josh takes care of his 98 year old grandmother a week. My grandma every morning, I'll put her on the heart of party that's next to her bed also helps one of his sisters who has autism with remote learnings. I've had to kind of fill in as a teacher kind of helping her out with some of her homework, he says. For awhile, college applications just had to take a back seat to his other obligations. And experts say that's been a common theme this year. Angelique Figueroa is a counselor with a college bound initiative, a process that would have ended completely in December is now being pushed into January and February, she says. Part of the challenge has to do with applying remotely. She thinks the main reason is because students are under so much pressure, and some of their parents have lost their jobs. So now they have to work and they have to be able to provide And, um, I'm sorry I'm getting emotional, but I think that that is why it's taking them so long because they have to now. Not only be a senior Graduate from high school and be the first in their family. But now they have toe provide financially for their families. Like everything else with the pandemic. The impact on college applications depends on where you sit on the economic spectrum. With no s A T or a CT this year, applications over all appear to be up. But applications by students from low income families, students like Josh, who qualify for few waivers are down. Eric Waldo is with the common APP, which allows students to apply to hundreds of colleges at once, certainly a decrease in applications from first generation and low income students. And that's been probably the most troubling takeaway. He says. It's not surprising given how much families are struggling with finances and with loss. He says. Covert. 19 has also underscored how important it is to go to college. Having a college degree is actually was protected people and giving them the ability to stay home it all from the pandemic. It's been a life or death issue, so to be is that much more important that we you let this be a really a clarion call to all of us to do more to make sure students are applying to school and that they're actually showing up and going to college. That message isn't lost on Josh Sr. It's really just a question of where he'll be going next year. He's still waiting for responses, but he's already gotten a few, including this one from SUNY Binghamton accepted Yeah. First college acceptance ever he hopes many more of these are on the way. Thank you. Lord Jessica Gould w N.

"Existing months true but sometimes we don't know what we don't know. Let's sarah lucia who was one of the first two passengers on a virgin hyperloop test ride in the desert. North of las vegas nevada. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Thank you so much for having me. It wasn't a surprise that big cities were strongholds for democrats. this election. joe biden won all of the twenty largest cities in the united states. And while that may seem like a good thing. derek thompson writes that. Democrats reliance on the biggest cities to deliver. Votes is creating problems for the party. There is a staff writer at the atlantic and has a new piece out on this tomorrow called. why big city dominance is a problem for democrats. He joins us now from washington as he does each monday. Derrick welcome back great to be here thank you yes. Can you tell us more about how important cities and densities have really become for democrats from an electoral standpoint. Democrats win cities period. They just win big cities. They win the biggest cities and they win the suburbs of the biggest cities. That is a coalition. It is a handshake between density. That is the largest downtown areas and diplomas the highest educated suburbs of those metros. If you go online and you type into the search bar largest cities by population and you scroll down the list. New york city los angeles chicago houston phoenix. You have to scroll all the way to number twenty five oklahoma city before you get to a metro. The biden didn't win in november. Democrats marched just without question the party of the city today. And that's often reflected as a wonderful thing about their future because cities metro growing. But i really think it's not necessarily a good thing. It's creating a lot of settled problems in the party. Well more specifically you write that Device that's metro coalition is a nightmare for winning national elections which has to do with the electoral college and the senate lay out some numbers for us. That show us why. That's true shirt what we hear about democrats problems in electoral college all the time. I don't have to go into that. The real problem honestly is a senate the senate as everybody knows. Privileges smaller states. That's just how it was designed and it is a fact. It's a quirk of maternity that. Most of the small states today have rural populations with lots of white people without a college degree. And that's the sweet spot for the republican party The gop currently holds both senate seats in alaska. Arkansas idaho iowa kansas kentucky louisiana mississippi nebraska. South dakota and wyoming. Those eleven states have twenty two senators who collectively represent fewer people in the population of california. So that's the democrats problem right there in a nutshell yes. Democrats can win the senate. They have won senate but requires them to win big in multiple elections in a row. Just look to two years ago and the two thousand eighteen midterms democrats lost the national popular. Vote in the senate contest as they won the national a popular vote by eighteen million but they lost to net senate seats the republicans. It's just a terrible terrible map for democrats to win in the senate going forward. Well you also point to progressives living in the wealthiest cities from san francisco to new york city who created a philosophy that does not go over well and other parts of the country. You actually call it instagram socialism. Can you explain. I'm gonna get in trouble for this one. But here's what i'm saying. There's no question that young college educated people in america's richest cities are really progressive. I have before called them effectively. Third party in america to the left the democratic party. They're also extremely online and there is something about the dynamics of online interaction that tends to push conversations toward their extreme and this is created i think an urban political movement in this country that is just very far to the left of the average american americans. Love ideas like universal healthcare if you pull them but overall the aren't that fond of socialism and so problem. The democratic party is that they're young base in cities extremely educated extremely online This this movement of what call instagram. Socialism does have a way of branding popular ideas like universal health care with unpopular ideas like socialism. And we have to get to a point. Democrats have to get to a point where they are thinking more about the marginal voted for their party. And not just about the base. Will you give california as an example of this vast canyon between liberal progressives in cities and everywhere else the la times actually reported a lot of what you're saying here on that divide and how it shows up in voting patterns on a number of ballot measures rent control and criminal justice but what does california tell us about the viability of progressivism. Right now nationwide. It tells us that cities are far to the left of the regions around them in the last ten years los angeles in the bay area have moved far to the left to the rest of california the los angeles times published analysis of california ballot measures That found that l. a. And the bay area of san francisco were thirty points the left of other californians on issues like affirmative action and allowing parolees to vote now a thirty point. Gap is a massive gap. That's like the difference between the state of massachusetts in the presidential election and a purple state like pennsylvania so from a political perspective. It's just a straightforward fact. Los angeles in the bay area are beginning to look like leftist havens in an otherwise moderate state. And that is a microcosm of. I think what we're seeing nationwide is that metros are going in population but they're downtown areas in particular. Their young a population within those downtown areas has just moved significantly to the left of the average american. And it's creating a really tension with within a democratic party that's a riot as coalition between aoc type voters who represent new york city and people in the suburbs of georgia in arizona. Derek thompson a staff writer at the atlantic as always. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you here. And now is a production of npr in wb. You are in association with the bbc world service.

"A recent poll by the american psychiatric association shows that nearly two thirds of americans feel more anxious than they did this time last year. The pandemic has heightened mental health problems. Nationwide and some experts say this has led to an increase and drug overdoses side effects public. Media's dairy and benson reports with a surge in covid nineteen cases illinois officials are urging people to stay home and other midwest states such as indiana and iowa are adding restrictions to limit gatherings that worries brandon. George director of the indian addictions issues coalition. He says restrictions might shutdown recovery meetings for narcotics anonymous and other groups. Just like they did in the spring. We were lucky with the the seasonal timing of the first round shutdowns a lot of the meetings a lot of meeting with other people getting that unity connection we were able to improvise and do that. Outside and winter meeting outside might not be an option for people with substance use disorder. George says isolation can be deadly or finding less and less safe ways to be able to interact with folks and addition is deadly. Alcoholism is deadly for some people that might be the most deadliest piece Healthcare wise for them closing down businesses and issuing stay at home orders helped combat cove in nineteen. But george says that might have done more harm than good for those with substance use disorder. The solution for one pins on. It was the opposite of the solution for the overdose crisis.

"The us and the globe. Millions of students at colleges and universities across the country are preparing for thanksgiving break a time when most of them would usually leave campus but this year the annual student exodus has been stalled by the surging pandemic and schools are taking extra precautions to stop the spread of the coronavirus at the state university of new york system as sunni all students will be required to provide proof of negative test results before they're allowed to leave. Jim lateras is suny chancellor and he joins us now for more from albany new york. Welcome thank you for having me on so normally suny has about four hundred thousand full-time students across sixty four campuses but now during the fall semester only about one hundred and forty thousand were. We're actually there. How many of them have been tested so far. So we've been testing now for about two weeks as we wind down our in person classes for remainder of the semester. And today we've tested one hundred forty nine thousand students and faculty so we're virtually there of of testing everyone we have today and tomorrow we end tomorrow at noon but we're basically they're already. It's been a tough arduous task. giant operational undertaking child our campus. That done quite well. Tell us more about that. I i know that new york governor andrew cuomo and six other governors in the northeast. Our colleges to provide free testing How how you all undergo this did you provide Testing are paying for these tests or students making their own arrangements so this was something that was really important to us so about a month and a half ago. Most health experts told us to basically send people home during thanksgiving and then transition to remote learning so like we set up the system to be that way. Let's take an extra precaution. Let's mandate that. We test all of our students on the way out so most systems are colleges and universities are the testing we actually made it a requirement for students before they left but they're used to it and we've required at the beginning of the semester that everyone of our sixty four campuses test regularly our students our faculty and our staff. So that's why. I think we've had a smooth air time at this. We do it for free. We don't charge students faculty or staff or and we're able to produce an in campus test. We can do about two hundred thousand tests a week so and we. We took the cost ourselves and no one has to pay out of pocket for students are are used to this as you said Over this past semester and they're used to this requirement but how are you enforcing it so you know the thing is. There's been so much cynicism about students all across the nation and know sometimes it's warranted you've seen outbreaks arise because of large parties in students not conforming to the social distance guidelines. We had a couple of examples ourselves at the state. University of new york system but overwhelming majority of our students have complied With the social distancing in the masks and not doing large gatherings so. I think our students have been really mindful of doing tests. Because they don't want to bring the virus home in infect their loved ones right. they'll go home and see their parents. They're gonna see their grandparents. They're gonna see their immune compromised brothers and sisters. They don't want to bring it home so the students. I've been talking to the students all across the system that i hear from like thank you. We want to make sure that we're not bringing this invisible killer home. Potentially with us but for those small number of students had don't comply with the mandatory testing. We have a pretty strict rules in place One of the things that we did. When i became chancellor at the end of august for the state university of new york was we put in uniform compliance policies which means if you violate the covid protocols on your campus if you don't do mandatory testing and those types of things you could be suspended or even expelled from college are serious consequences because this is a serious national health crisis. But we've had to use that very sparingly mostly. Our students have been because they wanna do the right thing. I i hear exactly what you're saying but can we. Can we do the one. If for a moment of students test positive. And they don't have a safe option to isolate for instance you've actually said you're keeping campuses. How is that working as soon providing and paying for housing and medical care for these students who can't leave if they tend to positive and for how long in new york state states if you test positive for covid a fourteen day isolation or quarantine period. We have a moral responsibility to our students as well right. Some students have the ability to work with their local health department and find a space at home for many of our students who are living through this deeply troubling time health wise but also economically right there like living on the edge with housing insecurity and food insecurity. We thought it was really important to mandate that our campuses remain open for those students who need housing who need meals who need medical support which they are doing and this is a moving target right right now. We have about nine hundred students who have tested positive all across our system right that number changes day to day but depending on who comes in who comes out about eighty seven percent of those students right now are isolating or quarantining on our campuses or in a an apartment off right off. Campus and things like that where the services are being provided by the campus. We have a deep responsibility and commitment to our students and we don't want to change that now given a health crisis given that they may not have a place to go and give them. That's around the holidays too and it's really tough on many of our students and their families so we wanted to take them. You mentioned how this has been really hard on. Students and families. And i hear that that sunni has said it's expanding its mental health services for students. What have you heard from soon. So far about how they're doing through all of this. This has been a really difficult time for our students. I think our students were happy to be back. We were one of the few large university systems in the country to bring students back. Like you mentioned but you know the issue of loneliness in relation and living this different time where you have to be social distance. As a matter of public. Health has taken a toll on our students. This is a really tough time. Not only for everyone in society right. I mean everybody's feeling this cove fatigue but at the same time our students because they're living in a different environment away from their families and it's really tough and challenging for them. Yeah this is also a really expensive undertaking. I can imagine how much sunni spending to cover all of these extra costs. Well they're the testing has cost several million dollars. Probably all of our campuses Mental health service expansion is probably cost several million dollars as well These are difficult times for everyone across our communities especially in states that need desperate federal which we hope we get soon but in in a way. We don't really have a choice so you always find ways in these difficult times to prioritize funding where they need to be prioritized for so cutting back into other areas. Where we're not. We don't need to spend so he can spend on those areas that need spending the most last month. Suny oneonta announced the resignation of its president. After more than i think about seven hundred students tested positive there other campuses have reported just a handful of cases. What precautions have you taken on. Campus to prevent new infections. I understand the continual testing. That's happening but how are you. Coordinating these plans across the dozens of campuses throughout the state. So one of the things i wanted to bring to bear is chance was more uniformity across sixty four campuses. We put in place uniform testing rules so every campus.

It is conceivable that you could have it by October, though I don't think that that's likely the race for a vaccine all the more urgent as new outbreaks threatened college campuses and towns more than 1000 cases and counting at the University of South Carolina at Indiana University. 30. Greek houses are quarantined, and the school is extremely concerned. It's seeing uncontrolled spread. I think you just hear around the grapevine people getting in and then you're like, Oh, this person came in contact with this person. Some students are worried. We have campus corner, which is the block right next to campus, and that's all of our bars and stuff on. There's no Mass there, so if you don't get it here, you're going to get it.

"From the West Virginia Coal Mine. Well, I have reviewed online materials about tree houses and bowls enhancer taint that he does completely beyond my ability if kids can't be happy playing on the ground than that's their problem In Hornell on Friday there was a man named William J Cornish Age seventy one who is charged with some hundred and fifty counts involving sexual abuse of a child first degree. Felony Criminal Sex Act Fifty Council that First Degree felony sexual abuse fifty counts of that. a misdemeanor endangering love child fifty counts of that as well as a couple of additional accounts thrown in. not good stuff there for sure. Yesterday or what Saturday night you heard about this fatal car wreck a North Plymouth Avenue some guy hit trees and out. If you can picture North Plymouth Avenue it runs a pass, the east side of frontier field and then goes north of on the west side of Kodak. Tower. Goes some Kodak buildings goes past I ain't got there were they have the dog pound and ultimately ends up by DIPLO. And as waigle's an intersex lyle. But the deal is that you know when I heard the report, some guy hit trees I thought been there are no trees there. it's all city sidewalk building concrete, but it turns out that there are two trees and the poor gentleman high rate of speed hit them both and he is passed away. On this deal? With, school coming up real quick. I would politely suggest to all of us that because we're about two or three weeks away from the start of school depending Most are not starting until the fourteenth which I think is two weeks from today. So what that means is that if you want your children to go to school and you know be sure that they're free of covid and aren't taking any bugs with them to school that could you know screw the whole thing up? Now is the time to maybe step back into our march and April mode and you're just do family things stay close stay in a lot of great outside stuff go do it alone and just make sure that we're not not transmitting and again I'm. I want to get back to life and I think that the restrictions on us are are preposterous but we're taking a big step many other states have done it and are getting along fine. It turns out that kids are going to school in in many parts of America, and in the next week, it'll be many more parts of America and they're doing fine. They however are not playing under the Andy Cuomo. Rules which are very stringent. So we don't want this to screw up we don't WanNa, give him an excuse to screw us. So the biggest thing you and is parents can do is send healthy kids to school. we don't want to be the ones who introduce the covert into the schoolhouse. So what we're doing with our kids, we're just kind of hunkering down We're GONNA. Make sure that we don't have transmission opportunities and and then if we all do that that reduces the likelihood that anybody takes the covert into school and and maybe we can make a success out of this Chris. Glad you called welcome to Newsradio wham eleven eighty. Well, how are you doing this morning Mr? Bob Could Buddy I hope you're the same. I'm doing great. So I I looked and If you go on bass pro shops, just type in Dan, they have these. Steel platforms and their feet tall. They're kind of they're all engineered. So you just sit that on flat ground or on top of like paver blocks or something like that and what I was thinking is you could build like a six foot by six foot deck on the ground without putting the decking on out of out of pressure treated two by Sixes and you've got experience building your decks. So you build that if you have a couple of he pile. Up on top of the. Then put the Daqing on their put railing on it, and then you can get one of those like ten blind things that way nothing and you could sit up there during hunting season. Then during the regular season, the kids can her regular year. They can sit up there and play up there and a j feet up shape Scott a ladder, and you know it's like sapping hundred bucks and the cool thing is you can move it. If you decide, it's not a good spot. Well, you take it apart a little bit and you move it to another spot the reset it done you don't have to worry about killing trees, outstanding Sir I appreciate that advice as Sam Schreier is you know as prototypical suburban American Dad have You're you're you're youngsters young hold your kids three and one.

It's a ladder standards sixteen foot ladder with a little seat on there's no arms no anything. You sit there and don't fall asleep and you'll be fine. Yeah I'm impressed with what you did with your back at the pond and stuff I think that if you get the right the right way to do it I I'm fairly confident that you can have something pretty nice up there me I think but again, the issue is, how do you?

"Controversy means something that there are different viewpoints on right. So there's this matter before society people have different viewpoints on it that person is put up a sign expressing their viewpoint. That's it. Right. If you with that viewpoint great if you don't great, I would not allow it to upset me. Right. Now we have a a your sign in our front yard. It has to do with a vote in my Morris on whether or not. There should be a fire district I'm profile district the. Some people are anti fire district We have not come to blows over this issue and I don't anticipate. We will why because we're all free Americans and it's a matter of public controversy about which people have different views and different. This will express are different views and we will live happily enjoying peace. Right what sign you put in your yard is your business and I rejoice in and will defend your right to do so. One thing where we're tripping up here, Logan of late is were getting pissed off when the other guy exercises his freedom and let me just say this. The progressives who are using black lives matter to advance their their agenda. The progressives, they're the ones who don't let anybody else expressive viewpoint, right? They are wrong in that at all cancel culture people use fake names on on facebook. So they don't get in trouble on their job people share a post anything of political or religious on they don't want to lose their jobs. When the progressives do that to us. We know it's wrong. Last week we had a convention did the Republicans among US wherein repeatedly that point was made that canceled culture intimidating and threatening and beating people into silence is wrong well, it is wrong. and it's also wrong. If say I happen to be a conservative and then I try to shut the progressive up from having his say. Right or get him in trouble for what for what he believes you say your thing I'll say my thing we'll be fine America is a live and let live country. Where they ought to put that on our currency live and let live right. You do your thing I'll do mine back in a moment with you I need some advice I need some advice is going to get sexy right about now I need some advice on lag bolts coming up on. newsradio. WHAM eleven eighty, seven eighty. Welcome back. Welcome back the mysterious lag bolt here's the deal down the country land, the eight acres hillside swamp. We I want to put something up in a tree. It will be a playhouse It will be deer stand it will be a place to get up in watch the birds will be a place to hide and wait for dear be a place where kids will get away and a tell their stories away from the adults in enjoy a life of adventure and imagination. I am not a very good construction person, and so the question arises how do you get something up in a tree? How do you build something there and of course you can arrested on posts I. Guess that involves. Drilling a hole digging, a hole putting post in pouring cement all things, which may be just the other side of my capability limit. So then you google around or whatever look at facebook or facebook Youtube, and You see people make these tree houses by bolting. Things directly to the tree. Which you know into the tree and then you you know Essentially from would attach those bolts. So, that the tree is the post holding up the Tree House, and that seems appealing to me in that it frees me from having to set posts and and build some upward structure, which again you know is probably beyond my ability and I don't want my incompetence to endanger people who one day might be up on there. So lag bolts into a tree. You see in some of the Youtube, a mom and dad out in the backyard making look to be pretty swell tree houses that way. The downside is or concern is I don't want to hurt the tree right when you drill a hole in. I, you know I I value the tree that's there the trees our us. So at any rate if anyone has ever built. something up in a tree and attached it with lag. Or if you have any insights on this I would be grateful to hear. It's something I need to do before this deer season comes and before my children get too big to want to climb up and about and enjoy a treehouse.

The Ancient Ones
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries I'm your host kit chrome. Today we're GONNA take a look at a mystery at mystery at least as deep as Amelia earhart. What happened to the honesty Indians? The honest are originally from Siberia during the Ice Age what became native Americans crossed over a land bridge it appeared because of the low sea level. The Ana Sasi tribe eventually settled in what is now era sonal well, maybe not how they were a native American culture flourishing in southern Colorado and Utah and northern New Mexico and. From about one hundred ad whose descendants are considered to include the present day puddle people I dug a little deeper and discovered that the name on a Sasi means ancient wants doesn't make sense. The Apache were given that name Apache by their enemy if it's true that the. Came over from Siberia or existed in what is now American southwest around one hundred ad as some speculate than it is doubtful that they would have called themselves the ancient ones but what's in a name and what happened to them? This was not some small tribe in the eighteen eighties when many of their dwellings were found on the face of Mason, they were dubbed cliff-dwellers. Many of the dwellings were over six hundred feet up and built into sheer cliff faces. Some were a dozen stories high and consisted of over eight hundred rooms. There were grain rooms rooms for dining rooms for sleeping today's and estimated that the on Sasi numbered about thirty thousand, one theory dates, their disappearance between six hundred and thirteen hundred ad again, what happened to them perhaps like the Mayans they migrated were simulated the Zuni, the Hopi Indians? Oh, today believed that theory one Hopi elder explained about a thousand years ago. The elderly reportedly said, the Pueblo was visited by savage strangers from the north. The villagers treated the interlopers kindly but soon, the newcomers devastate their farms and that is why they began to build their homes high up in the cliffs. Okay. That explains why they lived in cliff dwellings still what happened to them? Where did they go contemporary scientists think that life was pretty good for the ancient ones why then did they end up abandoning their magnificent agriculture and permanent homes to migrate hundreds of miles and seemingly lose their cultural identities and Hopi Land Suny. And the Pueblos the upper real `grande, oral histories of the Hopi Zuni Pueblo people as well as scientific findings suggest that the exodus from places like Jaakko and Mesa Verde may have been. Family by family or clan by clan and may have occurred over a hundred years. Scientists suggest that things like poor sanitation should pass. An environmental degradation may have caused on Sasi to move think for a minute of a cliff face village six, hundred feet off of valley floor with eight hundred rooms where the residents for maybe five hundred people where did the sanitation factor play out? It would have been an awful long descent to use a local capital unlike the hokum people to the south on a saas he did not build huge irradiation canals on a Sasi diversion and collection of national precipitation was not irrigation in the usual sense in general their dry land farming. On the natural blessings of rain and runoff melting snow often they helped mother nature by building check dams, terracing hillsides. So locating fields near the mouth of royals springs one of the largest of their water conservation efforts was a five hundred thousand gallon reservoir at Mesa Verde after poring over dozens of documents and stacks of books I realized that no one has come up with an answer of what happened to the thirty thousand plus on a saucy unlike a lot of ancient civilizations left scrolls and etchings on the walls on saucy left nothing. So where did they information? We have on these cliff waller's come from to Colorado. Cowboys are said to discover the magnificent cliff towel structure at Mesa Verde. On a bitterly cold day in December eighteen, eighty eight, the male members of the ranching family soon became amateur archaeologists, digging gathering selling pottery weapons, tools, and other artifacts mostly to museums even without formal training, they were able to identify major distinctions in the pottery they found and conclude that different sites were occupied during different time periods in the late twentieth century the melting of more sophisticated scientific techniques and contemporary native American Indian knowledge has dramatically increased. Our understanding these people for some time many scientists have gone about their business privately evaluating physical evidence and police seen theories about the long gone a Sasi scientific speculation about the mysterious disappearance of the builders of the cliff dwellings continued to the current era.

What happens if Uncle Sam goes home?
"Support for Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders indicates more and more. Americans are questioning the nation's role as global leader. But what happens if Washington Jettison? Us alliances and ended the Ford Presence of U. S. forces according to Thomas wrought in the Lightest Foreign Affairs magazine. That's a distinguished New York based journal a strategy of Retrenchment. He argues would among other things. Destabilize the regional security orders about Europe and Asia increase the risks of nuclear proliferation and aggravate the threat of major power conflict. The foreign affairs article is cold. The folly retrenchment. Why America can't withdraw from the world? The author Thomas Rod is director of the Center for the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution and is affiliated as Nonresident Fellow with the Lowy Institute in Sydney. He's based in Washington. Hi there Tom Hi Tom. It's great to be Richard and join us in cine studio. Is Doug Bandow? He's a senior fellow at the Cato Institute also in Washington a former special assistant to President Ronald Reagan and this she's scholar in residence at the Center for Independent Studies. That's a Sydney based think tank that I had welcome back. I glad to be on Tom. Tom Why do you still support a foreign policy? Strategy that Yusei quote has served the US. Whoa for decades. Well I think that the you know the. Us has had a critical role to play in Europe and in Asia since the end of our two and then after the Cold War And I think it really has worked. You know it's it's created sort of stable open and prosperous regional orders. I think if the US was to withdraw from those regions those orders will be at jeopardize some. We'd see all sorts of negative effects and I think as we look at American farm policy. Be Up to distinguish between some of the conflicts in Afghanistan and elsewhere that might make sense to to to pull back from or to to to end and the more broad sort of American commitment to international security. And I'm sort of worry that we might throw the baby out with about water in this when we talk about you know how engaged the US should be in the world but your critics would say that the US has over extended itself Particularly in nations. That don't directly affect the American national interests. I think of Afghanistan Iraq Libya many people would say strategic disaster after strategic disaster. Doesn't that undermine the case for? Us Global leadership role. Well I think that we can. We can debate the merits of of each of those and certainly in Afghanistan. Icee in the piece that it's time to end the the Board Air. I think Iraq is a sort of a tricky case because there needs to be some sort of a small presence to prevent the resurgence of Isis. And but the main point of the piece actually is that the US has not overextended in Europe and Asia. So all those cases you mentioned are sort of the Greater Middle East right there nod And Not in Europe not in Asia and I think the strategy in those two regions is basically working has worked quite well and so I don't really see the evidence of an over extension in either of those two places over extension dot band. I think we're clearly overextended. The problem is it's going to get worse. You look financially at the United States. It has a trillion dollar annual deficit for the foreseeable future without a financial crisis. Those numbers will get worse of the entitlements. Is the elderly retire? The question is how one maintains globe spanning military capable of trying to contain nations along their borders essentially everywhere and also fund other commitments. I think is going to put enormous pressure on the US budget. And I think what we see today is basically an overhang of a policy. It's inertia for policy that worked well in terms of containing the Soviet Union but doesn't make much sense when it comes to Russia and a policy that in East Asia's very complicated China's strikes me as being the major problem that we face but it makes no sense to extend ourselves everywhere for primarily concerned about China. I kept isn't a US. Pullback from Asia and Europe want that be more likely to embolden regional powers like China and Russia. I don't view Russia's being particularly strong power the stage Russia doesn't dominate Europe the way the Soviet Union threatened do so Russia doesn't have anywhere close to the relative strength towards Europe that China does Europe strikes me as being a very good example of where history suggests we should change policy changing circumstances. Meena change the policy now argue frankly. Us policy's been destabilizing. American policy towards Russia in terms of NATO expansion involvement in Ukraine and Georgia has actually provoked the Russians and has created greater problems there and argue greater threats than an alternative policy. Would Have Tom Rock. Well I guess I would sort of ask Doug if you pull of NATO or reduce the US commitment to troops in the to to the countries in the Baltics Eastern Central Europe. I mean I see the presence there as having a deterrent effect. In that if we didn't have NATO Basically have Russian incursions into those countries in greater instability. I also think NATO helps to sort of try to slow the rise of authoritarian intimate some of those countries. We have big problems in Hungary and elsewhere. I think if NATO was to disband pullback those problems get worse than that. We need to be more focused. On Democracy. In those countries that are currently in the NATO Blah if as the retentions argue the US should basically withdraw from NATO or weedy ended started military. An present there that will have significant negative consequences in another part of Tom. Wright's thesis in his Foreign Affairs as I dug Bandau is that. Us retrenchment leads to nuclear proliferation that is US allies. No longer protected by uncle. Sam would be tempted to acquire nuclear weapons of their own. Why Co that danger Doug Bandow? Everything's relative here. Sometimes you live in a world with bad choices so if the question is to the United States forever defend lots of allies being willing to sacrifice American cities to defend them or should they have nuclear capabilities. Themselves it's not so clear to me. That proliferation is such a bad thing. It's not a good thing but the question is does. The United wanted to risk Los Angeles to protect Taipei and Sydney and Seoul and Tokyo should the US be prepared to risk. You know. The United States still cities and dealing with Russia when in fact already Britain and France have nuclear weapons. Perhaps the European Union are some European defense for should also have nuclear capabilities. I don't think that it's a good alternative. On the other hand the assumption undebated you know kind of unconsidered. I think that. Us should of course maintain this Really starts falling apart especially in Northeast Asia if North Korea possesses missiles capable of hitting the United States and targeting American cities doesn't make any sense for the United States to be prepared to go to war on the Korean Peninsula. What risks are at stake? What interests are at stake? I look at that and say this really is at point to argue that. Maybe we need to reconsider. Who has want Tom Rod on that note? How would you respond to Doug? Bangles question does the. Us wants to risk of Los Angeles to protect Taiwan. Yeah I just. I just think it's really. You know in the exaggerated concern. I mean this is a very real concern. At the height of the Cold War there was a problem. Extended deterrence you know. Obviously there was a number of Said's and brinksmanship but since the Cold War the US has been able to deter Russia in Europe and Saudi. Different way you know actors in Asia what I going to the brink of a global crisis and You know that would precipitate nuclear war. Hasn't we haven't seen that pattern of crises in the last three decades so The evidence would suggest that deterrence in Europe is fairly stable. I came guests. Doug band out from Kite. When Thomas Rod from Brookings? Both prominent washington-based think tanks. And we're dividing. Tom's lightest site in Foreign Affairs magazine. The folly of retrenchment. Why America can't withdraw from the world before we turn to Australia's neighborhood in is Doug. I just want to put it back to you on this question of pulling America out of certain regions. Say the Middle East if the US pulls out of Iraq and Syria a want you just invite those suny jihadist or even the Shia militias to fill the void while they're already there. I mean the reason. Shia militias are active in Iraq is because we blew it up. I mean the notion that America promotes stability in the Middle East. I think is a fantasy the? Us helped blow up Libya now. We created the precedent that if you're dumb enough to give up your nuclear weapons and missiles we take you out who what dictator wants to follow more Merck Offi. I think the the Iraq circumstance you cannot complain about Iranian involvement there when we took out the anti Iranian dictator. So I don't see us as being able to promote relative stability in Iraq in twenty eleven when Obama Administration withdrew. Us troops that created a vacuum for those Sunni. Jihadists non-islamic stunned. I mean th this. As soon as you hottest were active. The reason we have al-Qaeda's it was created al Qaeda in Iraq which transmuted into Isis Obama pulled out following the George W Bush plan Bush could not get a status of forces agreement through when he had all the troops. So the blame Obama for this. I think is silly. And if American troops had been there there's no reason to think they would have maintained stability they would have been a target not only of Shia militias it would have been targeted Sunnis. Both sides would viewed the United States as being a problem. I told me dot band now. He he's a former Reagan. Adviser Menu reflects with I express themselves in different ways Obama trump and sands would essentially agree with Doug Bandow. How would you respond? But I think Obama. The Obama Administration came to the conclusion that it had sort of made a mistake in pulling out of Iraq in the manner in which it did because it went back in. You know to fight. Isis applied played an isis merged So I think you know. I think there's a tendency when we look at these issues you know to say the US withdraw from all of these conflicts to say. It's a Bama toward the beginning. Iraq was the wrong war. Could start it on false. Premises and Afghanistan was the good war Because it was legitimate when it began and broader than looking at the strategic consequences of both which are sort of independent of the causes right. And you know if you have a country `significant you know as Iraq in the heart of the Middle East. What goes on there has consequences and consequences for the region at a time when there is still continuing terrorism threat. I think is happening now. Let's bring it to Asia a dog. You obviously five a retrenchment of US power from not just Europe in the Middle East. I completely get that but you also support a retrenchment from East Asia question. Why China just feel the strategic vacuum left by Uncle Sam and therefore threaten the integrity of many sovereign states in the region. Doug Bandow well. China's the great challenge and the question of how to deal with China. There's no easy answer. I think the question of what America's role should be. It's clearly much more of a backup role it's not America's job to protect scarborough reef for the Filipinos me last year. Rodriguez territory announced after the Chinese Sankar ship. The US should send the navy in and start bombing. And I'm here with them. I mean it shows the danger of essentially transferring these decisions to local powers. And there's no doubt I think providing security guarantees

Does killing Soleimani really change anything in the Middle East?
"For a generation Iran's May General Sulejmani he was a consequential Fica League in the Persian Gulf for the Americans in the region Sunnis? He was a terrorist mastermind for the Iranians the Assad regime in Syria Hezbollah in Lebanon. Sulejmani was a hero who protected the Shia cresent in the region. So it's no wonder the Iranian generals death via a drone attack attack in Baghdad. That was a huge news story. Earlier this month cast into the money rainy and military commander assassinated in the US drone strike on mm struggling marks a huge escalation coming just days at was revered by Iran supporters in proxies being blamed for the deaths of hundreds of Americans in the Middle East over the we took took action last night to stop a war. What comes next? What's the broader strategy? Here we did not take action to start a war. Your since the American killing of Sulejmani Tehran launched a missile strike on your spices in Iraq and in the process mistakenly shot down a Ukrainian Ilana carrying one hundred seventy six passengers something. The Mullah's had initially denied responsibility but crucially the Iranians signings avoided killing Americans. which was the red line? The president trump has drawn. US military response. So we'll this episode. Leave Iran Ryan stronger or is tyron now more isolated than ever and what is the showdown between Tehran and Washington Maine for Iraq the US military Tori prisons there and Iran's nuclear ambitions. Danny Applica- is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington and Co host of the AAAGH. Ah podcast what the Hell is going on. Making sense of the world get identity. Hey Tom and I'm in. Sokoll is author of Iran Rausing the survival and and future of the Islamic Republic and CO author of Islam beyond borders the Oma in world politics. Welcome back to Iran. How good morning now? Also Amani abetted genocide in Syria to keep the Assad regime in power. He's responsible for the deaths of many American troops. He armed Hezbollah in. Lebanon with rockets is to attack. Innocent Israelis killed many innocent Sunnis in Iraq. So I mean isn't the world better off without Sulejmani. Were president trump. I think so. And also quite a number of American allies in the region Probably I think the same way but at the same time demand was a national hero and in fact that he was the one of the top strategic brains behind Iran's overseas operations and expansion of eight onion influence in the region. I will just support related to the fair that it only leadership has about the possibility of an American attack or an Israeli attack on a combined and attack. But let me see this Tom that nobody is commendable. dimitris full of commanders. Top commanders into the Nobel Prize winners and so on General money is being replaced And I think e to the debt is a widespread view in the West. That if you bump one or two individuals isn't the situation is going to get better We duty cold in history that take for example a Prime Minister Anthony Eden go around the nineteen fifties and calling for the elimination of Jamaa Nasser as the national president of Egypt and has was that this man is removed from a then. Everything will be fine. Nothing died in nine hundred. Seventy and a situation has not improved a cold and and at the same thing was said to be so I mean the point though. Is that knocking off Salomon. He's not going to make a great deal of difference. But also can I just add to this Dani salamone and these Iranian backed Shia proxies. They did help inadvertently into why help. America Islamic state. So does it worry you that people cheering the loudest about this. Guy's death other suny jihadists in there are slighted areas in the desert and the mountains of Iraq and Syria. I don't think they're the ones who are cheering the loudest I. I think you heard pretty loud cheering from here. I think you heard some plenty of loud cheering in In Iraq and Lebanon and and elsewhere throughout throughout the region. Look you know. I think it's important to acknowledge that. That as the head of the cuts force Qassem Soleimani was a very powerful folks very influential very strategic and very effective leader and he brought that effectiveness to things. That would terrible And the arming of Hezbollah. The murderer of half million Syrians. The arming of mass. The arming of in Yemen. We could go on for a while here but but But he did all of those things but when when the challenge was from Sundays you had is. He helped set up and guide ride. The hoste. Shabby the popular mobilization units in Iraq that That that ended up being part of the battle to to defeat Isis. The problem here is that every situation in the region is is more complicated than the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Just because Stalin Fort with us to defeat Nazi Germany did not make stolen a good guy. And if you look at these anti-regime protests some and. I've been breaking out in Iran since Tehran admitted that its military military shot down. A Ukrainian passenger Ilana have the Iranians overreached because despite the Iranian successes in Iraq Syria and Lebanon on on their rule out officials sites there on stable they print across he so have the Iranians overreached. There's no doubt that many Iranians feel about the Ashim and today have protested over the last few months in order to bring about A structural reforms today as a system of governance and economy which is setting enormously under represent- trump's sanctions but has the Iran overreached. What are I pointed out earlier I mean Iran does fear a a very strongly as possible American that much Israeli combined attack and therefore what update on your the humans done his belt reasonable security and press such for itself which would really want? Shepherdess Arafat at all costs but that does not necessarily Saudi mean that Iran is only Aggressive power in the region aggressive actor in the region. I mean. Let's not forget that that that the destabilization Iraq really started the two thousand three. US invasion of that country. Okay so the. The American invasion of Iraq helped Iran on because it overturned the suny state and it created a Shia majority Stein. I saw a natural law with the Shia brethren in Tehran following following on from that Danny shortly a problem about striking at pro Iranian sheeham paramilitary groups as trump has done is the now part of the Iraqi state. So is it any wonder. Washington's increasingly modulation is part of the world. First of all. I think it's offensive talk about Shiites. As if they're all some sort of monolith. The share of Iraq are Arabs. The Shia of Iran are Persians. These these are different people this. These two countries Shia versus Shia fought a bloody war for eight years in which there were one million casualties casualties in the nineteen eighties. The notion that somehow Iraq is a natural satellite or or or or slave to Iran is wrong Iran has chosen to try to dominate that country and demonstrations throughout the central and southern part of Iraq. Over the last month have been against Iranian domination the Iranian consulate in Jeff was burned to the ground at the end of last year not by Sonny's he's not by Sunni jihadis not by Isis not by Kurds but by Shiites carrying placards yelling out to out for Iran. Get Out of our country and I think that that is absolutely right to suggest that Iran has gained more influence in Iraq since the demise of Saddam Hussein. I I guess I I'm just not that big a fan of Saddam Hussein and the and the stability that he brought to Iraq. I wish that the United States had done more in the aftermath of the wall. I think thinks that we I think that we failed miserably. In many instances I think it was absolutely fatal in two thousand eleven when at a time of genuine stability in Iraq Iraq. President Obama withdrew troops and really provided the opportunity for Isis. To rise up again. My guest Daniel Placate from the American Enterprise Institute. And I'm in Sokoll. He's the author of Iran rausing and Islam beyond borders. I mean how would you respond to all of this. Because we've got these tensions here between Tehran Iran and Washington and the Iranian backed Shia politicians released most of them in Baghdad. I support if not closer ties with Tehran. They want the the Americans out of Iraq. But don't the sooners and the Kurds fee for the Iranian intrusion in Iraqi sovereignty. I absolutely and of course sir. The APP is not only the president of the American so who'd be which are being the opposed to in Iraq but also the presence of eight onions there. No question Ah about that but at the same time if we know that the majority of the Iraqi population is made up of the Shiites and some powerful elements among the Shiites have got the value equals relationship and relationship. What they don't know in the meantime ago? The Iraqi parliament release the iranian-backed Majority Shia legislators I support the withdrawal of US troops Danny now given trump's ambivalence about the region and the fact that he was elected impact to get the US out of the so-called forever awards isn't a US military withdrawal from Iraq. Just what trump and many war-weary Americans want. Well it's kind of funny. Isn't it because we start off talking about the you know the Iranians and what they want and and of course. The number one goal is to get the Americans out of the region and that is in fact the instruction is that has gone out to all of their proxy groups. All around the region. Is You need to step up activities to get the Americans out. Then we've got the president of the United States. It's who dearest and fondest goal is to get American troops out of the region so so a couple weeks after killing Kassim Sulaimaniyah. We have this unbelievably in coherent bizarre response. Where we where we're doing exactly what the around him one let? This is what Donald Trump has to sort out. He has to sort out whether he's the president. He's the kind minded president who who leads in a forthright fashion against men like costume ceremony. Who Seek to destabilize the region and extend Iran's hegemony Germany or he is going to be the kind of president that like Bernie Sanders like Barack Obama wants to turn around and high tail fin is to the Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump's uh-huh Washington energy independent America Stein fought these endless wars danny well A? They aren't endless wars. We have lost fewer people in these. This was than than than we lost a single day in World War Two so while they are conflicts that have continued on and off to a certain extent. You know the notion Shen that we've been sold that somehow we've still got one hundred and fifty thousand troops on the ground and losing them at a rapid pace is just wrong. We lost six in Syria. I I mourn every single one of them but the Kurds lost eleven thousand in their fight against Isis. So what what. What is the reason? We'll tell you very straightforwardly woodley because every time we turn tail every time someone says let's get out of that bloody Middle East. Let's pay attention to something fun. Like Asia and you'd like that. Tom Would now but hang on your way but every time we say that we end up being dragged back because the dynamics in the region of the ones that bring us back we need. We need a long-term solution that lets us. Stay away for good rather than one where we run away. Anita did it come back every single decade I mean the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal Provided tyron with as much as apparently one hundred fifty billion dollar windfall. Aw and certainly many people who are skeptical of the deal side that the Iranian spent lavishly arming the Shia militias across the region. So what it was trump right to pull the US out of the deal and instead impose maximum Prussia built around these economic sanctions on Iran. I think he was totally wrong and and I can care. There has been a backlash president. Trump's would would you withdrawal has a basically a provoked said that on Not to really go for the for police. Speed to in order to rebuild that they have nuclear program and. I think you're going to really do that. And of course that also carries the risk of a possible confrontation from tation between the United States and Iran possibly Israeli attacks on Iran and that could easily dissolved in a regional warfare. That at the end nobody may may be able to control it Danny. Any I mean a lively debate. Thanks so much for being back on. ABC

The world reacts as Iran increases its nuclear power
"Clifford help us explain the significance of Iran blowing past this low enriched uranium threshold. I think they're trying to up the ante. I think they're trying to <hes> tell the Europeans Yuba better find some way to give us some economic relief if you want us to abide by any of the restrictions of the J._C._p.. Away the joint comprehensive plan of Action <HES> and I think they're trying to give themselves themselves as well more leverage. Should there be any future talks so with the U._S.. <hes> about Iran's nuclear weapons program I mean what do you think tyron gullies he. I think they don't go to objectives so one is for send the signal to the European but they have to do more in order to compensate for the American sanctions and the second thing is to send a warning shot to the United States that they run S. capable of continuing resistance to American maximum pressure and I think down of the drone in also alleged Iranian bonding of some of the oil tankers cruise to the Strategic Strait Faye of hormones at basically to indicate to the United States that they Iran has the necessary capability to cause a Lotta problem. The United States continues to build up its forces and evolve into possibly trying to you know China India think the Europeans again to help Iran out. I Clifford well. I'm not sure the Europeans can do what the what the religion of the Islamic Republic want done to offset in the sanctions regime. That's been imposed by by the U._S.. I think they have been trying over time. <hes> they have a financial mechanism called insects that that may or may not <hes> function. I think even the dozen won't satisfy the regime which is fueling wounded this intense pressure and I think the regime is trying to decide delete simply wait out this administration and hope for a Democrat to come into the White House in the next administration who is more likely to say the J._C._p.. O._H. Finer who'd be more like a bombs policy but that's a Monday time that's eight months. Tom Clifford yes. I I think they are seriously thinking of two things. I can't tell you what decision they made or if they have one is. Let's run out the clock for the next estate months. Let's see can get the Europeans to help us do it to relieve. Some of the economic stream of the sanctions have put on us the other possibility is let's find a way to go into negotiations. I do think that people such as Foreign Minister Javad Zarif thanks look I can beat these Americans in negotiations just as we be the Obama Administration negotiations but I think they would also like that over the receipt as a win would be if they could get some rewards simply for coming to the table rather than waiting when it comes to the table. Able in seeing what they can give up in order to get some relief and I mean what do you think I mean we'll Iran's action. Hey Prompt Europe to join Washington in sanctions. I try to resist it for as long as they can simply because I think a continuation of the nuclear agreement to ease in the interest of their European powers and <hes> as you know <hes> prison macron has sent Donald Trump advisor to tate on in order to persuade attitude it onto to participate in our joint commission for the all being the nuclear dispute <hes> by the fifteenth of July so we will see what's going to happen <hes> but <HES> I do agree with the proposition that I don't. I think that the European will be able to mitigate the effects of the sanctions onto the extent which they'd on his really desire by that is not really a major point for Iran at the moment. I think the regime can take care of itself. It is really on in society but then I gained the regime has necessary forces at the disposal in also sufficient public support behind it in order to deal with any internal disturbances which <hes> effects of the sanctions immediately now this week's news news from Iran. It's clearly in response to Washington's decision to pull out of the nuclear deal. This was of the Obama deal of two thousand fifteen. The trump administration pulled out last g Clifford. Was that decision by Washington wise given that you could make the argument that Tehran is now more likely to develop nuclear weapons well. My reading of of the Iran deal is that it was fatally fatally flawed agreement. It didn't stop the Islamic Republic Veran from going on to develop nuclear weapons met best the lane that temporarily of the sunset clause has made it very clear that within ten to maybe fifteen years of two thousand fifteen when the agreement was concluded Iran would would be essentially welcomed into the Nuclear Weapons Club now you can say but by then surely this would be a moderate liberal regime. It wouldn't be a terrorist sponsor it. They want to worry about their own people getting there and being more prosperous that there are no indications that was that that's the case. I don't believe that is likely to be the case so I think the sunset clauses were really fatal. Florida this deal to other fatal flaws one their missile program they been continuing to develop missiles that can deliver nuclear warheads <unk> anywhere on earth use of I._C._B._M.'s. That's part of the nuclear weapons program. There's no use for a third thing was that I do not read that the verification inspection system was at all rigorous <hes> the Iranians made very clear. You're not going to inspect military facilities. What are the chances that nuclear weapons might be developed at nuclear weapon military facilities while very high since they've done that in the past and then you have of course the nuclear archives set were purloined by Israeli intelligence which shows that they were they still had every intention of developing nuclear weapons although they've never said they? They've never acknowledged yes. We had a nuclear weapons program. They had they said not. We don't really want them but by the way we're going to ratchet up. Nuclear weapons program the one we don't have if you don't do what we want. I think the J._C._p.. Away it was a bad deal. They have made it very clear that they do not want to cross the threshold in order to produce a nuclear weapons and the the supreme leader Earth Rally Hamanaka. He has repeatedly say that production of nuclear weapons un-islamic doctors not to say that there may have not been a secret military nuclear program that may be so but at no point did it on jons bakeries to pollution nuclear weapons but even now if the increase then Richmond Bodega rhenium to the point where you would be able to produce nuclear weapons would be quite a few years away from anyway marquess cycling camera and Clifford my in Washington Clifford you mention that Iran is a state sponsor of terror or get almond to talk about that in a moment but this nuclear deal clearly filed to stop Iran's regional activities of supporting these Shia militia across the broader Persian Gulf Clifford how can Washington with its regional allies stop. The spread of these Iranian backed Shia militias well the first thing that it was accomplished by pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal is we're no longer financing that effort. We were giving billions of dollars the Islamic Republic of Iran we I think hoping that they would use it again to build hospitals in schools. Goals and create jobs of the instead as you say the Shia militias just a few minutes for this call. I had a Syrian American activists here in my office and he was explained to me what's going on in Syria. He Warns Organization. That's very active there. He said members of his organization <hes> murdered he says Iran not only occupies Syria. It's not only part of Iranian <hes> imperialism in the region. It's colonialism as well well. They are moving out soon. Be Populations they are moving in Shia populations not just Iranians but she is from Afghanistan from Pakistan from other parts of the of the world that that have come to be part of the Shia militias. They're taking over towns refugees finding out that their homes have been taken over this is terrible stuff we also have had as you know with Iranian help over five hundred thousand people killed in Syria and millions millions displaced. This were happening being anyplace else in the world imagine with the news coverage would be in what the average would be and here the international community sort of shrugged his shoulders and Yawn somehow we have thirty hospitals bombed in recent days <hes> thousands and thousands of people in the long Medicare these possibles near inlet they were not bound by accident they were bombed on purpose and and it seems to me that the international community so-called as no intention of forcing any sort of accountability accountability on Tehran even though its responsibilities absolutely and I mean I should stress I had the pleasure of being on the A._B._C.'s Q._N._A.. This week and I made the point that according to Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch a lot of these Shia militias leashes have committed appalling human rights abuses against Sunni civilian so how worried should we be about Iran's proxies in Syria and Iraq and Yemen. I mean if you're sitting in Tehran and looking at around the country I mean the outside that country you'll see that there's been surrounded by hostile forces in one form or another and what you really basically tried to do that is true extinction. You're a determines and resilience and this is what the Saddam regime and by no means is <hes> the democratic regime or does not is not involved in human rights violations or for that matter is sponsoring particular group said in the region but what what has been done is to build regional security architecture right basically supposed said that Santiago regime and the survival and that's why they have been very heavily involved in Iraq and Syria and Lebanon as well as a AH Yemen and following on from Yarmouth Point <hes> Clifford I mean is it rich for the U._S.. And its allies to be so hard on these Shia militias when let's be frank they played an important role on the ground in Iran and Syria in liberating suny towns towns from the Sunni Islamic state control. I'm sorry I reject the notion that the Islamic Republic of Iran has essentially taken over Lebanon through Hezbollah. If we're defensive purposes they just what is it that they feared from Lebanon. They feared the Christian community. They feared the Druze. I have no idea that's not what they're doing is trying to be is trying to defend themselves. They have essentially as I said taken over at our colonizing Syria they are controlling rolling Lebanon through Hezbollah supported the Lucy militias in Yemen and they are vying very much for influence and control in Iraq as well as well supporting Hamas of course in Gaza they Hezbollah Hezbollah operates also as their proxy in Latin America where it has teamed up with the drug cartels. This is terrible stuff and to say well. They're just trying to defend the regime. All they WANNA do survive. Trust me president trump will say fine. We'll help you survive will support your survival but what you can't do is take over all the other countries in the region and threatened them as they continue to do threatening the Saudis threatening the Bahrainis threatened the Maradas and of course threatening jen inside of Israel somehow that's supposed to be just boys will be boys and it's not just cycle. I think what Iran is <hes> been doing is that mirror image of what the United States has been doing the United States being trying to <hes> and cycle Iran and that's been the case over a long period of time and also in order to contain Iran in whatever way possible enough because policy of containment did not really work and that's why <hes> President Obama <hes> decided to go for a policy.
Critics Question Trump Tax Plan Meant To Boost Struggling Communities
"Support for this podcast and the following message come from American pest open your doors, who healthy pest free home with American pest, offering safe environmentally friendly pest control solutions throughout the DMV for over ninety years. Learn more at American past dot net. Some American neighborhoods are struggling even in a strong economy. How much can a new tax break help them? NPR's Asia Roscoe reports standing in front of a massive crowd in Orlando last week. President Trump may this promise to help poor neighborhoods, we will expand opportunities Jones so that no community is ever left behind passes, the part of the twenty seventeen tax cut law. The opportunities owns program allows governors to make some low income areas in their state eligible for federal tax incentive, Trump often refers to the program when talking about what his administration has done for struggling rural and urban communities and as a part of his outreach to black America. Skins. The policy is also been championed by lawmakers, such as Senator Tim Scott a Republican, and Senator Cory Booker, a democrat running for president projects are underway throughout the country. On an empty lot and tippy Zona private equity investors in fficials gathered in the white tent for groundbreaking of the plane ninety unit affordable housing complex. Former Arizona governor Jan brewer spoke really thrilled to see all of you. Thank you so much for clear. There were shovels and symbolic tossing of dirt has particular property. If you look around, here's pretty blinded. You've got some dilapidated buildings. That's Quin Palomino CEO virtual partners the private equity firm, that's building the project do its opportunities own fund, and you have investors who would not have normally invested in this project. It's opportunities. Owns is really been an incredible tool. This is an old idea. That's been supercharged by the 2017 tax law. Stuart Butler is one of the conservative scholars credited with bringing the original idea of so-called enterprise zones to the US in the nineteen eighties Butler, who's now with Brookings Institution said the vision was to make it easier for people living in poor areas to be able to start businesses in their own neighborhoods. The second piece of it. Whereas to say, let's look at tax relief, and let's relief taxes reduced taxes on people who take the risk of investing in a poor and difficult neighborhood. Stays introduced. Their own versions of these loans in the federal government followed suit, launching the empowerment zones program in the early nineties backers of the new opportunities zone say they are totally different though program required states to compete for tax breaks in grants Butler, Greece's latest program is different and that worries them maybe they went too far in this current version. There are more than eighty seven hundred opportunities owns covering nearly thirty five million Americans and vessels can defer their capital gains taxes through twenty twenty six by putting their profits in opportunities zone funds that invest in these communities. The longer the investors keep their money in the fund the more tax benefits. They receive the concern is that wealthy people will pour money into these, multimillion dollar funds. But Butler says the development may not help low income residents. It's a -tracting the wrong kind of investment lodge scale investment, which may lead to far greater gentrification. And removal of people rather than the original intent of the enterprise zone idea. But these critiques are off base says Doron Smith. He's deputy director of the White House office of American innovation. Smith says local governments can work to protect their residents vacation and not something that's happening. Every city is not happening in, like the Mississippi delta right houses, very affordable down there. So for us to create economic development tool that tries to fix a problem only hurts us some urban areas. That's not smart. The White House has also set up a council to help target Federal Housing grants and other funds specifically for the tones. But it's unclear whether these owns will truly spur new investments, especially in places that were already on the upswing says Timothy Weaver, a professor at SUNY Albany, who has studied these types of programs people who were going to invest anyway. And now getting a tax break and to maybe you're gonna get shifting of investment from outside of zion's to inside of designs. And any the case what you'll likely to see our rent's going up for everybody, even some of the earliest opportunities zone supporters, say there needs to be more information about where the money is going. There are bipartisan bills in congress, that would require the government to track whether benefits are actually flowing to the communities that are in need.

"Okay. So I always thought Woody Allen was a creep. Because of the SUNY thing for those you don't know he was married to me a pharaoh. She had adopted children. One of them's name was SUNY Previn and supposedly Woody Allen and SUNY fell in love while he was married to me a Farrell, and they had an affair while she was older. They'll supposedly she says that they didn't have sex until she was eighteen or whatever gentleman. Yeah. So and then they got married and had children of their own and have been married since the early nineties, and I always thought that Woody Allen was big creek just because of that. And then one day I was talking to my agent my agents like because the the feral kids claim that he molested them. The other the other children and the his his biological children. And I just assumed that that was true because of this thing, and then when I learn more about the story, it seems like Mia Farrow was very manipulative. And that she brainwashed these children because she's so angry Woody and so angry at herself for letting that happen with SUNY when it's embarrassing and that she put this on Woody and all these years, everybody just believe that. But when you hear all the details of the story in the fact that she claims cheeses, you know, holy roller. And and she did everything right? But if you look at Ronan Farrow, pretty sure that that's Frank Sinatra's kid her ex husband. So anyway, well point is I started saying to myself Woody Allen may be less of a creep than I thought he was he may have just fallen in love with. I mean, they're still married. They still have a great relationship as far as they're concerned. So that's been my my thought then make the policy is in the studio with us, Nick. And Nick dipaolo told us that he had dinner with Woody Allen. And I said where did you have dinner with Woody Allen? And I wanna say billionaires house was it knicker. Was Bobby Slade was mic. I okay. And then he's like billionaires house, you can Google it. I don't wanna say talk about it later. It was like, okay. And I didn't get it. I didn't know then Bobby Slayton came in and said he had lunch would Woody Allen. I mean dinner with Woody Allen, and I guess Woody Allen likes to have dinner with other comedians and beyond people who can make him laugh, so they invite comedian so Bobby Slayton and Woody Allen, and this billionaire will Bobby saying give us a little more information. And we will then this guy is a billionaire who has been in trouble a couple of times for funneling in underage prostitutes. And supposedly had this island where rich guys would go and bang underage girls. And supposedly Bill Clinton stayed there. Long convoluted stories now I'm back to thinking Woody, Allen's a creep that was too. Times. Woody Allen was associated with the billionaire child must. So I back to thinking Woody Allen is a creep again. And then this article comes out. Yes. And I'm like, yeah. He's a great, right? So she started when she was sixteen. He was forty one. It was an interview with the Hollywood reporter Babbio, Christina Engelhardt. Joe you had a picture up there. I claim that she first met the director in October of nineteen seventy six in a New York restaurant, and that they swiftly embarked on what would become a eight year affair the legal age of consent in New York then and now is seventeen. So I I have to wonder what any girl thinks when Woody Allen calls references hand, Farrell, Mia Farrow was a very popular actress, but she had just come out of this weird relationship where she was super young married to a Super Bowl Frank Sinatra. And when they got divorced. She just went for the exact opposite of Sinatra. Right. So. Oh, I don't know what girl of any age is like that's my type of guy little nerdy. Woody allen. Yeah. Spanish. Are you watching any wrestling? Do you watch it at all anymore? I keep up with it. But I am not not watching some time did Carmen. Did you watch last night? Last night would be what Monday night Ronay night, raw the big show fireman. You know, I don't have cable. So I have to wait the following. I'm gonna buy your cable. Well since he is done.

They the Royal family of wrestling to acknowledge their shortcomings and announced that they are taking back Monday night, raw a lot of fans appreciated the heart to heart.

"I felt like that was the first home my life that I had a choice. I could choose who I wanted to be around in how they inspired me and how I inspired them as I was also a huge reason why I chose Howard because I just wanted that for four years. The college choice? Yeah. I mean, literally, like when I chose to go to SUNY purchase, it was number two acting school at the time. And so when I didn't get into Juilliard Juilliard letting it into Juilliard, I got a call that. It was like you go to purchase. Alano went to purge. There's a lot of like ended up as stinky poor choice, and but then when I went to Columbia for grad like there was like people who literally were like, why are you going to that white school? And I was like, I knew I knew though, like I'm need this Ivy to be able to be this. Like we talk about credits. I was like, I'm going to need that in the work that I'm doing because I already know that the the opportunity to undermine is going to be so tempting for so many people, and I'm going to need to have this Ivy behind me for them to shut it up to show that, but college. This episode, we talked about people asking questions about how do you deal with college when you get there? How do you deal with it when you leave? You know, all that good stuff. So I want to take us into. When I start my day, I look at my phone and a lot of times I'm not really happy with what I see. I mean, I immediately I'm just like, oh, I got to say some things. Blood pressure goes up. My energy goes up. You know what? I'm already sweating. All ready sweating. One thing I never use thing about though was the odorant, but now it makes sense. I would just wipe it and go, but this is something I use every day, so there's a safer alternative out there. I wanna know about it since I'm starting my day worked. That's what that's how about the aluminum deodorant that change the game for me Copari so go, pari is coconut. It's a Luma, free deodorant that doesn't Sutton. We all love. Coconut oil were all into that. We're all during and coconut water. It seems only natural that they would become coconut deodorant and Copari is currently running a campaign. The truth stinks.

Why do you like yet? Because you were watching Cinemax in front of your seven year old anyway. So I'd say we're a little strict with things like that sometimes, but I never really noticed with music, but it's hard to control what music your kid listen. Because like my daughter goes to gymnastics eight nights a week and like they just play whatever like top forty music is. So they come home. My four year old son walks all day saying, give it to me. I'm worth it. Like just like weird stuff that like they have no idea what they're talking about, but it's just like every there's nothing to win Sandra for the podcast, you can.
