It's 10 AM siren is heard across the country. Everybody stops everything and stands in attention. The whole country is posing for one minute off silence. It's a major violation of social rules. If you don't so everybody, does it men, women Children. Everybody except my dad. It just sits there continues to read the newspaper and sips his morning coffee. He doesn't even try to see says That's how I know Memorial Day for the Holocaust started. This happens once a year, and it fell right on my yearly visit to Israel. They before I take a walk in our industrial neighborhood. I see the corner where ahead this horrible accident with my skateboard, But I didn't cry. I figured if my dad went through the Holocaust, surely you can handle a little thing. One summer, my parents drivel and they sent me up north to a kibbutz to stay until they're back. There. I met a group of Germans who came to volunteer. It's the first time I see German people. They never heard kids used to beat me up for looking like a German. And indeed I blend right in the leader of the group is your home Every night we hang out together after work. With eight grade level English. I tell him about my hometown and he tells me about Berlin. One evening Yon brings a book of poems. I think he's about to kiss me, but I keep my cool and say cool, Go ahead and read. Suddenly I hear this flood of words in German deliverance took it. It was a form by Friedrich Schiller, who has my surname. There was a surprise. Johan goes on and on these German words are pouring out of his mouth. I never heard it so closely before it's terrifying. I start to see images of Nazis pushing Jews into trailers. Skeletal humans behind barbed wires. Smoke coming out of gas chambers until I scream, Stop and push on off me! John sits there all flustered. What am I going to say that my entire life? The only times I heard German was in Holocaust movies. What? The Germans did something to my dad. But I don't know what? Because it never talks about it. Somehow it doesn't feel like our after work conversation, So I just say it hurts any point to his food that is stepping on my toes. After these, I think there's something wrong with my memory. It's not my memory. It's my dad. Actually, it's not even he is because he never mentioned any of his memories. Still, I have these vivid images of horrific pain and I feel intimate with death. Which is very unfortunate, as I would much rather be intimate with I need to do something about it. Plenty. A heart to heart conversation with my dad. I asked him dead. What happened? Why didn't you ever stand in attention during the siren? He says nothing and leaves the room. Plan B Go to college here. I take some classes about the psychoanalytic theory of Freud. I think my dad would be interested, especially because his name is also Zigmund. He listens quietly as I explain and when I'm done, he says. Psychology is a serious load of crap. So I decided to major in psychology. However, people talking about their emotions could be time consuming, so I decided to focus on a simpler form of human behavior. I like them. They never talk about emotions just like minded. Only small and furry. Every day. I watch their behavior when they sense the smell of a predator, the freezing the corner When they hear the sound of a bell. They freeze in the other corner.

"Eighty downtown rain and fifty six I'm todd holiday newsradio. Wham of eighty next news at nine thirty breaking news when it happens anytime another hour with bond laws bury starts now on newsradio wamble eighty. Thank you very much I appreciate that good morning. Hello my friend. That protests that you heard reference in the newscast last night was apparently intended to. move the black lives matter demonstrations up into. Webster Ecorse the deal was that there was a weekend ago a demonstration front of Sand Door House, the town supervisor. About it pretty straightforward sent said, this isn't cool. We're not going to stand still for. and that sort of wetted the appetite and you know fuel the ire. These protesters who are not peaceful and who are motivated by nothing short of hatred. Right and you don't have to take my word for it. look at the video of these protests listened to the things they say to the police officers and deputies. I've just a a a a post at my facebook page Bob Launch. Berry to snippets of from last evenings demonstration, and they're sort of posted in reverse chronological order. But in chronological order, what happened was the you had these people who had set up there. It's commute time it's along one zero, four which is I think that's where it was but anyway, the point being Nayef, you're in a high traffic area and they're the demonstrators and they are coming out into the road trying to impede traffic and their harassing. People who are just trying to drive home or do their shopping or take their kids to wherever they've got to go, and you've got this filth in this pro vanity this vulgarity, these vile people up there and in a wonderfully coordinated effort by the Monroe County. Sheriff's Office and the Webster Police Department and we have a messages out to the chief of the Webster Police Department. I've texted the sheriff and the UNDERSHERIFF. I believe the under sheriff was in attendance I think seem in in one of the videos But what happened is a fait lancs, which is A. Long. Line of a sheriff's and Webster police vehicles very quickly came upon the scene. The protesters were if you will on the right hand side of the Road they had moved off the sidewalk onto the shoulder and into the traffic lane and this line of of deputies and officers came up and stopped and what they did with their vehicles was formed I. If you will a wall between the protesters and the passing traffic and D- deputies officers immediately exited their vehicles and you see in. One of the videos I think a young woman is taken into custody She was in the road and you're not allowed to go on the road now unfortunately, the city of Rochester they obey different master and in the city of Rochester I. Guess you can walk around in the streets and shutdown traffic and somehow they misinterpret the First Amendment at City Hall to think that's a protected activity but it's not and they know that in webster and they know that at the Monroe County sheriff's office and so. You're. GonNa Hassle. passersby, your take your protest into the street where people trying to drive while you're going to get arrested This isn't lovely village up here and you had a situation where they came they grabbed one or two of the people and they stood there did the officers and and they're like the video that is is posted like five minutes of it or so is the vilest profanity out of these people shouting at the deputies and officers it's just a it's disgusting it's revolting and it is absolutely not peaceful protests. First of all, if your protest violates the law, it is not peaceful and it is not protected by the First Amendment Again, you're not in lovely Ville anymore. But. The deal is if you step off of the into the road, you are in violation of the law and the violation of the law is not a peaceful undertaking period end of story. Further, if you listen to the vile crap out of these people's mouths is they are standing there in front of these deputies saying the crudest things clearly trying to provoke them threatening physical violence against the deputies that is not protests. That is a slow motion, civil war. It is a slow motion revolution. It is a Cold War of sorts that hopes to go hot. It isn't attempted provocation to violence. It is not protest. It is not protest. And again, in lovely Ville unfortunately, the people and their police have to bend over and grab their ankles. But I just hope that the folks realize that what goes on on the streets of Rochester will march down here. We'll shut this down. We'll do all that other stuff. That's because of the special dictate out of a city hall. But when you get back to where there is law and order when you get back to where they are concerned about protecting the rights of everyone to include people trying to peaceably lawfully pass in their vehicles on the street. Well then the protesters are going to meat or a different outcome. And again I hope you'll look at these videos. I hope that you will feel a pride at the fact that somewhere and again I I I, I don't want to. You know the the the actions of the Rochester Police, department in Kowtowing to these people. I yesterday posted a video which showed a Rochester police officer being punched in the face. By a so-called peaceful protester, right hauled off and punched in the face. Now that was caught on video. There's no question. There's no he said she said that guy right there just punch that cop in the face, the chiefs office. Intervened and said, let him go don't charge that person when the police she and who is the police chief right now there isn't one. This is lovely. Ville right? The current functioning police chief of the city of Rochester is a person A. Lovely Warren who currently is the object of two felony counts in an indictment right? That's lovely. Ville. And that gets you a call from the chiefs office saying, no, don't chart don't charge don't charge. Well. Again I just want to to to the protesting portion of the population. And you better keep in your mind real clear where the city limits are. Right because when you cross the city limits and you get out in America, they still have rule of law. And the cops they're allowed to do job you're going to be treated appropriately. You'RE GONNA, be treated fairly you're treated legally. But legally means you're not frigging God able to do whatever you want. Legally, means you will obey the law not just hide behind him. and. So we need a lot more of what we saw last night on row county sheriff's Office and the Webster Police Department. Again, they were a gentleman they. I I think I am ladies they. There was nothing untoward. They stood there. They took vile hateful crap from this gum that presents itself as these Grand Crusaders. Hey, listen watch that video because that's binds America and that's what we three weeks from today are about to get four years of just as an FYI right..

"Today superstitions, Merriam Webster. Dictionary defines superstition as a belief or practice resulting from ignorance fear of the unknown trust in matchy or a false conception of causation. That said many people from around the world have a belief that a particular action or event will bring on bad luck and in some cases, even death the superstition about walking or not walking under a ladder has its early roots in religion. Many Christians believe in the Holy Trinity the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost in early times. This belief made the number three sacred along with its triangle.

The APP lets users make short videos that are often shared across the Internet, but Tiktok isn't all fun games for months. Now, a lot of the attention about the APP has been focused on the national security concerns and the collection of user data, and as a result, the platform has been banned in India, by multiple branches of the US military and by Wells Fargo employees most recently however, president trump took aim at tiktok himself by threatening to ban the APP. We're looking at Tiktok we may be banning TIKTOK. We may be doing some other things, a couple of options, but a lot of things are happening. So we'll see what happens but we are looking at a lot of alternatives with respected dictum. Those remarks were before reports surfaced that Microsoft was pursuing a deal to buy TIKTOK in a press conference at the White House yesterday president trump claimed Microsoft or any other company would have to wait until September fifteen to acquire the APP and would be expected to give a percentage of the profit from the sale to the US Treasury.

Graham. All of that sounds pretty basic I mean it doesn't sound like there's anything to be concerned about so far what type of data does tiktok collect from its users Graham? We'll TIKTOK is like a lot of social media companies these days It's using an AI driven or machine learning driven algorithm to figure out which content to to individual users. So to get this accomplished, they pay attention to obviously whatever you post that also you know what posts on your feed you look at how long you look at them where your device location is They also tried to track individual users like many apps do by looking at things like screen size and operating system and of course, they have a fair amount of information about your social graph, your your connections to friends and other people that you follow. And so what were some of the concerns around the data collection that way Graham given that it feels like there's a lot of, as you mentioned, other social media platforms and advertisers and the like that are tracking everything that we do already. Why? Why is Tiktok being highlighted here and banned in some of the institutions that we mentioned at the top Well, the basic reason is that tick tock is owned by a Chinese company named Bite Dance and they're a fairly new social media company. They had a breakout a few years ago in China with an APP called junior Tokyo that that is a you know an algorithm, IQ news feed and this is China's first big breakout internationally in terms of social media APPS and really getting take-up in in many different countries around the world not just the United States. So there's A concern that data collected by Tick Tock could end up in the hands of the Chinese company or the Chinese government and wild tick. Tock says that it stores all US user data in the US or in Singapore we don't really have a good way as a society right now to check that type of thing and to make sure that companies commit you when they commit to you know storing data and the Safeway making sure that they're actually doing that. Doesn't sound like we have a lot of that in the United States either though Graham. I mean, we have constant security breaches left and right Right. Well, the United States doesn't have a central data governance or data security or privacy Regulatory System the most prominent example of one globally as Europe, which has the general data protection regulation called the GDP are, and that governs things like when an apper services going to collect your personal information they have to gain certain types of consent and follow certain types of rules and there's also kind of limits the. Idea that if you collect data for a certain reason that you got consent for you shouldn't be able to use it for other reasons and that type of governance is just not that prominent in the US partially because the big US social media companies are not especially keen to have their practices heavily regulated they. They find GDP are in Europe to be burdensome and You know get in the way of making money. Kalland back in June president trump organized a rally in Tulsa Oklahoma and rumor has it that tiktok users promoted buying tickets for the event and didn't show up so that the event would be empty. What do we know about how that rubbed of the administration? So, what we know is it seemed to sort of frustrate the administration. Now, there's no evidence that the Tiktok users and K pop stands who are fans of Korean pop music that they had any impact on turnout. We are going through a global pandemic. There are a lot of factors going on right now. So it is really hard to know sort of what that impact was. But what we do know is it likely inflated expectations for turnout. The administration was planning to have a second rally after the main rally in Tulsa. which they then had to cancel, and so we think that it really messed with them. It was a it was a real genuine troll on the part of these tic TAC users against the president, and it really seemed to rub him the wrong way and there are lots of Tiktok users young first time voters who are telling me that when trump said, he wanted to ban this APP that was a retaliation for what they did the stunt they pulled the prank they pulled in Tulsa most what they think is happening. That's what they think is happening why there is no evidence that that's the president's line of thinking but that's what these eighteen to twenty two year olds are telling me that that's their beliefs. Cowan, we talked about The you know whether or not talk users actually had any effect on the trump rally in Tulsa back in June but more more directly here wondering if you're seeing any more political movement on the APP, whether it's a pro trump or pro biden or anti-trump anti, Biden has it started to move away from dance and song and move towards more political leaning so far. It can do both things at once actually. So there are still the dance trends. There are massive accounts that are just enjoying music on the APP but we see a lot of politics on Tiktok now maybe more than ever some young people are telling me they feel that because their home in quarantine and because politics ramping up nationally as we get closer to this election that they're seeing more and more politics in their feet, and what we're seeing is a not so much pro by content, but a lot of anti-trump content and I WANNA be clear. There is Republican Todd Democrat tiktok liberal Tick Tock conservative Tiktok. But what it appears to be is a lot of generation. Z.. Has a anti-trump sentiment and that does not mean they heavy pro biden sentiment. But things that we see our young people say, Hey, on this day, everyone go to president, trump's campaign store and put these products in your cart. But don't check out because allegedly that messes with their inventory or everyone on this day go to president trump's twitter account and report account, and let's see we can get a taken down. So we're still seeing these sort of organized movements sort of Troll, the president and a lot of discussion of politics but whether or not that is in in favor of vice, President Biden or in favor of president trump is sort of yet to be seen. Graham LE. Let's talk a little bit. But I mean, it sounds like tiktok users are for the most part having fun on the site sort of trying to do the things that Collina's talking about here but. On a more serious note, the trump administration has been trying to ban the APP. They're citing national security concerns, concerns over censorship by the Chinese government. Valid are any of those concerns really given what you know about China US politics Well I think it's you have to separate them out So the the concern about censorship I think is legitimate there was there was an example a little while ago where it looked like some of the censorship that they would do in China restricting conversations about things the Communist Party doesn't like discussed had bled over into the international product Now, Tiktok said that they were addressing that wasn't intended again, we don't really. Have a good way in the United States to check up on that and to kind of make sure that speech isn't being censored one way or the other the national security issue I think requires a lot more imagination Now, you know as was mentioned, the the military has has told service members to not use the APP and I think that makes a good amount a sense you know if if you're concerned about an APP Having links to a potential adversary There's all sorts of possibilities of ways that it could be exploited even just using location data of of service members or people who work in sensitive facilities. But if you don't work in sensitive facilities, if you're just sort of going around and and and doing the fun things and engaging in some of the political discourse that Cowan was mentioning you know there's not. A real big national security issue there a I will say that some people think that collecting the full aggregate totality of US Tiktok users could be used later in a analysis to try to do something, but it's really imaginative at this point whereas I think the censorship concerns a real and could be checked on and data privacy concerns are real but should be able to be checked on as well. What about the fact that we we just heard from Ian Bremmer, the president of the Eurasia Group in the previous segment talking about how the United States is viewed internationally in terms of our response to the corona virus. But I did ask in also about his thoughts on what this Tiktok dust up between president trump and China what seemed to Be Rooted in and he said, you know this is also part of trump's sort of relationship with how he views China and Chinese technology he's gone after while way he's gone you know talked a lot about five G. technologies. So do you see that I mean? Do you see that as a pattern in how the president views technologies specifically that's coming out of China. Yeah I think the you know the trump administration's been. Pursuing a campaign of you know escalating what could be a new type of Cold War approach to China and a lot of it is wrapped up in technology and and I think the focus on Tiktok really makes the most sense. If you consider it a distraction from two things I is a distraction from actual problems with China you know the the trump administration got this phase one trade deal which didn't really get to the deep issues of subsidy and market access and intellectual property protection. And, on the other hand, it's distracting from the fact that a lot of these security concerns should apply across many apps. Why just tick Tock you know you're talking about including American made apps like facebook and twitter. Yeah I mean the concerns are different when the parent company is in China but there are really unaccountable data collection methods going on across ad networks and data brokers are building profiles of Americans and people in other countries that can be purchased just with money and you know it's not only add companies that by this data governments can get it to. Callan, as we sort of touched on this earlier. But of course, we I, say this all the time we're heading into one of the most consequential presedential elections in my lifetime at least social media is constantly changing is tiktok going to be a thing and twenty twenty and November, or is it going to be eclipse with something else or it'll change the? Will it change the election? Calvin what are your thoughts on that? I don't see Tiktok going away anytime soon, as long as the president allows it to operate in the United States I think we're gonNA see more is eight organizing on the APP among young people and I think we're GONNA see. TIKTOK. As long as Microsoft buys it or another company comes in to allow it to operate in the US I think it's going to stick around for a long time. I mean the president did Callan has also asked that Microsoft give money to the Treasury. If it makes this sale, we is anybody else interested in buying tiktok or is it just Microsoft right now? I don't think anyone else has come out as far as I'm aware and said that they are interested in purchasing Tik. Tok I think Microsoft even just recently confirmed that they were interested in this conversation, but it appears a deal needs to be made by September fifteenth. So if someone's going to buy it, it has to happen soon. Well you heard it here I guess I callan Rosenblatt is a youth internet culture reporter for NBC News Dot Com and Graham Webster is the editor of the digit China Project at the Stanford? University Cyber Policy Center and he's also a fellow

Grilled by Lawmakers, Big Tech Turns Up the Gaslight
"Everything all week just to give you the top five stories, and this week we're going to kick it off with the four major tech CEOs appearing before Congress. And as I looked at it, and as I watched the bits and pieces of it, it started to remind me of something, and I thought, What was that? What is that? I looked up in Webster's dictionary online, the definition of gas lighting. You know what that means? Gas lighting. It's a form of psychological manipulation. Distorting the truth. To confuse aren't still doubt is the official definition until the other person questions reality. Because there they were Amazon's Jeff because those apples Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google soon DARPA Che telling Congress why they shouldn't be broken up where they should be regulated. So America's CEO censors who for years have spied on all of us in a cellar data, and you tell this to be true, But Jeff Bezos actually said the on ly things People trust more than amazon dot com. Is their personal position and the U. S military, really. He's got AA lot of high hopes and not very humble opinion of himself, which I said that users clearly don't want to be tracked by those little bits of code called cookies, but Wait a minute. Didn't last year he have a speech where he defended them. Yes, he did. As a matter of fact, As for Tim Cook, he only got 30 questions compared to 60. The other Fab forgot. I guess they all like their iPhones there on the hill. And then there's Mark Zuckerberg, who argue that Facebook is not a monopoly, even though members of Congress Reference 2012 when Facebook bread they comprise 95% of all social media. And that's also right around the time that they purchased Instagram, which Zuckerberg considered a threat. He also did not remember paying teens to spy on them through Facebook research that app Which wasn't even two years ago. Maybe Mark needs little protection, don't you think? Well, the problem with these hearings is that the tech leaders or tech prose, and the folks at the hearing's not so much.

So great to have you. Here, thank you. We're really excited to talk about a mood. It's such an interesting and important project. I'll give a little bias in that. I'm really interested in this in particular because I've been on the board of Sfar for many years, which is the issue of the Torah Academy, the Talmud Academy for lgbtq folks are that comes out of the Experience Lgbtq Q. Folks. It's probably a better way to say it and. When I first heard about a mood I was so excited to hear that there was something that seemed similar from edge use of color perspective. So it's something that I've really wanted to explore for a long time that both of us have and and we're really thrilled to finally have this opportunity. So Mirror I was wondering if we could start with a little bit of the origin story of a mood. In, two, thousand, eighteen, I was invited to be in the Selah Cohort fifteen of bend the arc four juice of color by Jews of color and there I met Ya McCoy will meet her the year previously. And part of that training. Was a study that we that she called. J O C. Tour Academy. And it was several afternoons where we would look text from an anti oppression lands, and at the end of that hurt I was sitting with you who the webster was hard the cohurt. We looked at each other and I said, why does this have to be only part of this training? We need this to be real, and so we started talking with start talking about that. So that was may of two, thousand eighteen. By June or July. Are Corman had come back from Israel at, pass it to you. I did a fulbright year in Israel I live in. Jerusalem and when it came back, I became involved in. J. Fridge which is to cherish on economic justice. And Colored. Caucus. Part of my involvement. J.. Fridge I was connected to Huda Webster An. I approached you Huta saying that I wanted to teach a small class on the politics of Hebrew pronunciation and I wanted to teach it for Jews of color of an Alexi that you're smiling because acid is immensely nerdy deeply nerdy. Added belts deeply important but you huda one up to me and he said what if instead of just having your class, we actually create a container for this kind of learning to happen more often. and. So that really launched the idea of. Jesus, Colored Tour Academy, which became a mood colored tour academy and we started out by a every other week having a person in the community, a Jewish person of color in a community teach whatever they wanted and we we started her first Beta run I'm really got to see what what kinds of topics were interesting. How did the groups of people showed up for different topics differ in and we basically got to conduct all this research We launched our first full year after the high holidays. This past fall in two thousand nineteen. And we just completed our first full year of classes. We got here because for as long as there have been Jewish. People color navigating predominantly white Jewish space the roots have been growing and deepening. People like you. Huda. Myself were able to found something like this because of all that work that had been happening. JESSOP. Color entering wet Jewish is being Jewish spaces and also getting to know one another.
Harry & Meghan Called Whiny Brats
"Hey guys happy Monday and welcome to daily pop. I mean a- Parker joined by so my favorite. Silvester Aunt Victor Cruz A. You know we are going to go in this morning. Because someone is calling, Harry and Meghan tone death, whiny Brat S-. That person of course is Pierce Morgan who else pierce like the rest of US got a first look at the new book about the royals called finding freedom. It's a very personal and intimate look at their lives, and in today's Daily Mail Pierces the book. Confirms Up There Rawls, most that they are the world's most tone-deaf, hypocritical, narcissistic, deluded whiny Brat long to say. Do you guys agree with his assessment? Not even close not even close when you look at Harry and Meghan. You have to understand this okay. The royal family didn't work I. Think I think Harry First of all was just. He's a person that likes to spread his wings. He likes to do what he wants to do. And it just so happens that he found a partner that is rotten with him and wants to do the things he wants to do so look. They separated from the Royal Family I. Get it, but they still got to bring in the coin. So of course they're going to drop a book. Of course, it's going to be things about their their intimate parts of their life. That's going to be in the book. It has to sell copies, but do I think they're whining brats, because they're kind of letting people in into their loz little bit absolutely not coming from someone who has a New York Times bestselling book myself. You can go pick it up at Barnes and noble. You can. This is what you have to do to. You gotta give people a little bit of something personal so that they can go in and buy your book. That's what this is all about well I. I brought I bought. Cruise Control Victor and there was nothing personal in it, okay? We'll let me just. A REP from hearing. Megan told us that they did not contribute to the book. So this is not fair book. This is an author that claims that they spoke to over one hundred sources, which is how they got such personal information, so the book is about them, but they didn't write it. The sources gave them all the information from today's Arthur. First of all. Nina, you know as well as I. Know working in this business. We know that every celebrity has a few henchmen. You know my name on it I. Don't want to get my hands dirty, but wouldn't it be crazy if you're over? At TMZ found out about this personal detail. Look the thing is I do ride for Megan Harry? Understand everything that's going on with them, and I feel bad for them. However, the one thing that was missing in this book was them taking accountability for at least one thing. That's the only problem I have with. This I could see where they felt like they were trapped. I could see where they felt like they had been turned against, but they're just not taking accountability for anything at all. It's not their book. It's not their book. How do they take accountability for something? They didn't right. Come on, come on. Kirk five written. Book. Does like her five germ ability. If you decide to write something about my life, I don't have to take accountability for anything. It's not my book. You wrote it. But it's there. It's still going to come out and it's still going to be things in there that are probably true and depending on what those are. They should probably own up to a couple of those, and it's not anything wrong or anything bad about them. They're living their own lives right now. They're doing what they wanted to drink, so I wouldn't mind owning up to one. Maybe two of those things that are being said is. Is a lot because they don't want to go. This traditional route and I also think that there is a huge disconnect with how it relates to a lot of this because she's American because she's a celebrity from America and she had a different way of life, and also because she's a black woman, and I feel like there's been a lot of insensitivity to hurt that regard for how she's been treated in the press the way. Way that she's been treated compared to everybody else has been completely different because they didn't have to deal with a lot of the same type of headlines that she did. She felt very triggered by the way that she was treated by a lot of the press in Britain, because of the fact that a lot of it was race baiting a lot of it was. You know saying things that were really offensive to her, so of course. Course she's very defensive when she's dealing with that. And then also the fact that she was very popular coming over there, and so they were saying that she was kind of taking over for him, because she she was more popular than K., and that's to be expected so a lot of it, not that it's not her fault, but it's like look if my light is shining bright and this overshadowing. You said you'll came up, don't. Know Tena. Not that Nina I totally get it at the same time. If you're walking into institution that's been built for hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years. Sometimes, you gotta learn the ropes before you start stepping out before you get crazy now. Not saying what she did was wrong I just would have played my game a little bit slower. I would follow. Call before jumping ship and surprising and enrolling up on the que-, being like hey, all we hear from Canada. Talked about Leonardo's. Popularity grew like that. It's not her fault that the attention came to her the way it did when she got there. It wasn't her fault, and it's not that she linked up with Harry who was riding with her, and it was like you know what we're doing this on our own less rocker
"Acts Chapter One. Is really cool and really confusing not for us, but. Certainly would have been for the disciples on one occasion while Jesus was eating with. X One verse four by the way I should have said that sorry acts chapter one verse four in IV, twenty eleven. On one occasion while he was eating with them. He I'm sorry I can't skip over that phrase, but I didn't plan on one occasion. Not a special occasion. Just, just any old Sunday morning. Any old Monday afternoon. You know on one occasion. He would give them the instructions that would really explained to them his kingdom in a way they'd never seen. Any David the greatest promise of the greatest gift that they would ever. That they would ever know. Okay on one occasion. We'll have to go a little faster than this if we're going to get through it on one occasion while he was eating with them. This is Jesus eating with his disciples. He gave them this command. Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift. Wait for the gift. My father promised what you've heard me. Speak About for John Baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit in a few days you will receive the greatest gift, and it's not gonna come in the form of a car. Or House or bonus or something like that? It's going to be the Holy Spirit the greatest come from within. Waiting on an amen. Waiting on the name, and like they were waiting on the Holy Spirit. But then this this, this is the part I want us to jump from today and we have. We have a lot of ground to cover, but from here then they gathered around him and asked him. Here's what they wanted to know. He's speaking about the gift that he wants to give them the holy. Spirit he's already died on the cross risen from the dead. He's about to send to have, but he said I'M GONNA. Give you a gift and you have to wait, and then they gathered around. The Nasscom Lord argue at this time at this time. Going to restore the kingdom to Israel. At this time. Somebody, say at this time. At this time he said to them it is not for you to know the Times or dates. The father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power. Here's the guarantee you will receive power. When the Holy Spirit comes you, and you'll be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends of the. Word of the Lord Be. Somebody lift your hands in the chat to say I'm ready to receive them I'm ready to receive both hands both hands. I'm ready to. receive it. Oh, by the way I almost forgot. Shout out to my fifteen year old son Elijah be fertig. The Be stands for beats. He's A. He's a beat maker.

I'll never forget the day. He dropped the D. y. off the it was a it was a horrifying moment. And just even saying my fifteen year old son. Do you know how? How are cake? That makes my bones field. My knees started hurting I just felt like automatically old when I said I was feeling sprightly, and then all of a sudden, I started feeling saggy. Let's say I have a fifteen year old son, but his birthday was yesterday, and I love him so much, and he's watching right now. He better be if he wants to use his own this week and I'm to quiz on the sermon. He's my number one conversationalist. He's my workout partner. Now he's strong. The be stands for beasts to down there when we're working out together, and we have a good time and I love talking to them about my sermons. He is a great blessing. Blessed. Chris. You didn't say Amen, and you have a couple so I'm worried what's going on at the house. Do you need? Children are a blessing amen. Amen, and when you getting ready to have kids, they give you all kinds of advice. We were talking about the birth of the Church I was talking about the birth of my first born son, but. When when you're having your first one right since you don't know what to expect at all, the experts come out of the woodworks telling you how they raise their kids. They don't tell you that that one. They're telling you how they raised and giving you advice based off of Winter Rehab three times, but they just start telling you all this advice, and they'll tell you. Oh, and they'll tell you perfectly. They will prescribe for you perfectly. Kids our blenders. And like you can put them together and plug them in and. They were telling us with Elijah the whole time. The put him on a schedule. Put Him on a schedule. You WanNa do. You WanNa. Do what we did with our kids. When we were your age, and now our kids are grown, but. What was really helpful for us? Just really helped us establish. Just. And it's very good for the child is good for us. Just put them on a schedule. I and schedule. Elijah was. UNSCHEDULED LEVEL Is that a word on schedule. If. It's not a word it's it needs to be come on. How many agree after the year we've been having I.

Do not check my schedule. Looking at me like your kids do. You. Like. Schedule my children my. You know what else my sermon preparation process is on schedule I. Don't know how to spell it, but that's what it is. I was thinking of a way to explain it to. It's. You know I set aside time to study right, and then I'll just sit there and look at the Bible of five bibles, and spread them out, and none of them make any sense, and then while trying to go do something else, and I got something else going on within the sermon will just come. You know walking through the door like hey, here. I am I. Don't care the a date night. How many movie theaters have we been trying to have a date on a Thursday night? And I'm like I'm sorry big. You have to tell me what happens to Tonya. Harding on the ice skating movie. I gotTA write this down. Real quick because the sermon does a check my

In the eighteen thirties and forties Massachusetts senator Daniel Webster had captivated the nation with his speeches. People called him godlike Daniel and believed one day. They could expect a presidential bid from him. But underneath Daniel's saint, like facade, an alternate and much more troubled personality was hidden. Friends close enough to witness the senator let his guard down called him black Dan. Daniel was said. Do enjoy several drinks and night. He was an alcoholic with the problem of gambling his money away if he had any that is, and that troubling college habit of calling on the wallets of friends had resurfaced. Even as a Senator Webster was known to borrow large sums of money with no intent to repay them. Though, he wouldn't admit he couldn't save money for the life of him. However webster new. He Need Not Beg when he could borrow. He used his charming personality influence in Washington to surround himself with rich friends. They always provided him with whatever he needed. But money wasn't the only thing he was missing. In Eighteen, twenty, eight, his first wife, grace died of cancer. It left. Webster wracked with grief, only for his brother to also die the following year by May of eighteen, twenty, nine forty seven year, old webster was deeply depressed. He turned to the company of women to soothe his pain. The grieving senator was in desperate need of companionship. Thankfully after his wife's death, he received a gift from his old friend. A painter named Sarah, Goodridge. It was a self portrait of her own breasts titled Beauty revealed. Webster Goodridge had known each other for nearly a decade, but during this time period their friendship became something more. Even after webster married his second wife Catherine La-, Roy that December. It was widely rumoured that he in goodridge were still seeing each other. Remember Webster didn't just have one affair. He was rumored to have slept with many other women of various races both enslaved and free. Allegedly there were as many as eight of his mixed race children roaming around Washington C., and possibly more in Boston. After all the capitals doorman is, it would attest to that night that Robert Webster dashed up to the Senate Chamber doors in eighteen, thirty, two fatefully, insisting that he was there to see his father. And there was more to come. Allegedly in the eighteen forties, webster routinely dined with William Crunch the chief judge of the Federal Court in Washington at grinches residents. Webster met Monica McCarty grinches young slave. Webster marveled at McCarthy's cooking. He became instantly infatuated with her when crash offered to sell McCarty to the Senator Webster Recoil that the thought of owning another human. Instead, he purchased McCartney's freedom for six hundred dollars. The women worked at Webster's DC residents and traveled with him to his farm in rural Massachusetts whenever he visited. Kranj was under the impression that McCarty would pay webster back, but the senator never accepted ascent from the young woman.

While abolitionists those who wanted the practice to end once, and for all where drawing large crowds in support of their ideals President Andrew Jackson was filling the White House with slaves from his Tennessee plantation the United States was in the middle of a Protestant revival dubbed the second great awakening, a movement that had started in seventeen ninety, and would peak by eighteen thirty five. It emphasized moral values that all Americans felt compelled to follow values like loyalty, kindness and faith. Likely as a result of this collective guilty conscience, the abolition movement swelled and a fair share of congressman campaigned against slavery, including former president John Quincy Adams though he was nearly censured by the House on account of his activism. One of the loudest voices in Congress would prove to be Daniel Webster, a well respected Congressman, turned senator, representing the State of Massachusetts, and while Webster's later years would bring the odd mixture of both acclaim and turmoil to his career, his roots were rather humble. Daniel Webster was born in Seventeen, eighty, two in Salisbury. New Hampshire. While his brothers grew stronger as they tended to the family farm. Daniel battled many illnesses. He was too sick to work in the fields, so his dad's sent him to school instead. Daniel was a sponge for learning reading and writing a local lawyer. Reverend let Daniel borrow books from them anytime. He liked. The law books in particular peaked Daniels interest in justice and politics from a young age. He also didn't mind some poetry now and then. Many of Daniel's teachers praised his exceptional memory on one occasion Daniel tried to prove himself at his teachers challenge that whoever the most scripture from memory over the weekend would win a prize. Daniel beat his classmates by a mile reciting seventy verses before the teachers stopped him. In May of seventeen, ninety six, when Daniel was fourteen years old, his father enrolled him at Phillips Exeter Academy a Renowned Boarding School in New Hampshire. He stayed for just nine months until he began studying more rigorously at just fifteen, he enrolled at the college there from seventeen, ninety seven to eighteen a one, he joined debate and literary fraternities, paving the way for his gift of speaking. And not to call out an old college trope, but webster developed an infatuation with women, due to his sickly Pale skin, frail frame and dark features Daniels advances, though were often one-sided to compensate Daniel started to dress better than all of his classmates. It was tricky. Granted nicer clothes proved to be out of his budget. But. Webster levied his personality and his intellect to become well liked among his peers at school. Who wouldn't want to lend a little here and there to such a nice guy. Webster became a master borrower which would serve him through his life. He was the most popular student at Dartmouth and one day. Many believed he would be president of the United States. After graduating, College Daniel moved back to Salisbury. New Hampshire, where he learned to practice law. During this time he married. Grace Fletcher a schoolteacher and clergyman's daughter. Then, in eighteen, thirteen, thirty one year old Daniel, saw his opportunity to get into politics. He ran for Congress and one representing New Hampshire for the next four years until eighteen seventy. However, there was no denying that a lawyer salary far. That of a congressman after all he'd studied for twelve years, and it seemed most prudent at that point to focus his attention on law. He moved back to Boston to work for the Supreme Court yet as hard as he tried. Daniel couldn't stay away from Washington politics for too long. He was fascinated by the influence. Political figures had and their indelible marks on history. He harbored dreams of one day running for president and influencing the nation. So, in eighteen, twenty two, he again ran for the House of Representatives and was re elected as representative from Massachusetts. It was around this time. Though that the congressman's political ideology would start to clash with his more personal ethics, as the national debate of abolition ballooned with each year, webster was growing more pressed to take a clear stance. And at first it seemed clear what that position was as a farm boy, he'd never been wealthy enough to own slaves. His adult life had proved no different. Daniel Webster gave off every indication that he opposed the entire system of slavery. was quite a stark facade given the fact that in the early eighteen twenty s Daniel Webster's first illegitimate child. Robert Webster was born. According to the reporting by Smithsonian magazine, the man later identified as Robert Webster, who was simply known as Bob at that time was born into slavery in Washington DC in eighteen twenty, though the identity of Robert's mother remains unconfirmed to this date, it was said that Senator Webster came to visit mother and child where they lived and worked at Washington DC's National Hotel. The Laws of slavery in eighteen twenty meant that they were the property of Jon Gadsby the hotel's owner. Webster's visits to the National Hotel weren't in secret. He allegedly made quite the impression with his impatient temper and booming voice when he dined at the hotel. Still at that point no one dared to cross the senator or comment on his activities off Capitol Hill. Indeed, webster was quickly making a name for himself as the master orator of Washington his word bending was arguably his most important calling card as a politician. In Eighteen, twenty six, he'd even been unanimously voted to give the eulogy for both former Presidents Thomas, Jefferson and John Adams. It was eerily coincidental that on the fourth of July of that year, both men passed away in.

"In the year leading up to the twenty twenty election, we're counting down the biggest scandals in American political history. This is number twenty. The Story of Massachusetts, Senator Daniel Webster and his secret trysts within slaved women. Crisp night. In the winter of eighteen, thirty, two found Isaac Bassett the capital's longtime doorman, keeping watch outside of the Senate. Chambers door. Is. It could easily here the men debating inside. He didn't know what they were arguing about that night, but there debates never really interested him. Soon the patter of footsteps approached from down the hall. Isaac peered into the dark corridor to see a young black boy approaching. Children had no place in the capital and black children especially were rarely seen among the halls. Isaac asked the boy what his business was. The boy told him that his name was bobby and he was there to see his father. It was a shocking statement. Every US senator was a white man, and most of them were married. There was no way one could have a black child. That would be against the law. But, the boy said his full name was Robert Webster. Senator Daniel Webster was his father and the boy to speak to him immediately. Isaac could barely believe what he was hearing. It seemed unfathomable that the senator known as Godlike. Daniel could be hiding a secret..

There's something called districts. which requires that all sit so that's the house of delegates district would be an even multiple of Senate districts and the Senate the State Senate district would be made up of a whole number number of delegates districts since the current system like I have three different Senate state Senate races going on in my district one of my state. Senate companions has a state. Senate district has eleven counties in it including one where he only has to voters. I mean it's just silly and it is confusing and people don't ever the representatives are and it benefits the incumbent I because it topically if if elected I would you know early voting vote by mail without no excuse absentee I would let counties the counties wanted to try vote by mail and people in Oregon won't shut up about a wonderful if county in Virginia wanted to try vote by mail so we'll see how it goes. I don't like ranked choice voting which is still in the primaries you know when you have those big five-way primaries ranchers voting with these better candidate consensus candidates eventually. I think it'd be nice to use statewide in the general elections but rather than force it on people to try it out in the fragrance and let people per to kick the tires on it and voter guides. There's no reason in the world that produce and I think State Register. I think local registrars should publicize their early voting hours. That are a same day registration cool.

"I want to mention in just two things so the utterly cases not in innocence case right. It's a it's a case about whether the death penalty was was wrongly provided here and and yes the trial trial counsel came out and said he did everything that he possibly could have done wrong in that case readily admitted it <hes> deficiency he is. I think stipulated at this point. It's certainly been found by the courts and part of his clemency application. If i understand those proceedings correctly is that this is the only death row case jason tennessee where <hes> deficiency has been found so the the similarities are <hes>. I think true in two regards i the same investigator and and then <hes> secondly some some really just <hes> poor performance by trial counsel which has serious consequences <hes> i i should that note that you know i have no independent knowledge as to whether or not <hes> that allegation <hes> regarding encouraging perjured testimony is true or not but what i do know is was that in joseph webster's case the investigation that was conducted was flagrantly incompetent failed to follow up on multiple leads that would lead lead them. I think to identifying the perpetrators in nineteen ninety eight and failed to track down phone records failed to track down teacher records. They failed to interview bunch bunch of people who would have been able to <hes> help them identify a suspect and then you know years after the fact based on this <hes> very very sloppy investigation gatien and they decide that they know who one of the two perpetrators is they take mr webster the trial so that to the extent that that it matters i do know that the investigation at least in mr webster's case <hes> was poorly conducted. That's important to know. I think we're losing you here. Collins thank you so much for your time. Thank thank you very much danya last week. We talked about the release of centurion brown and her sentence being commuted so you have made repeated calls for clemency in the form of a party for calvin bryant junior in tennessee.

That's that's common in many places and is harsh everywhere. Tennessee's is just especially bad. <hes> it's a it's essentially strict liability crying that <hes> massively ratchets up punishment <hes> for for drug sales and then in cities and places like nashville calvin was convicted or memphis or knoxville vast vast proportions of the city. <hes> are in drug free zones because zone is so large and <hes> so many <hes> edifices qualify by that you can have you know forty fifty sixty percent of the city that is quote unquote drug free zone <hes> there also were not <hes> any safety valves <hes> commonly called so if you know an informant sets you up in a drug free zone some states consider that if you don't know you're in a drug free zone some say it's consider that if gets a sale between adults rather than you know selling drugs to kids on the playground some states take that into account tennessee does none of those things and in this circumstance you they had an informant who was trying to walk off his own criminal proceedings and and sets <hes> calvin who's a young kid at the time up for a couple of drug sales.

"The years us as we noted an episode one while roy owens was killed in nineteen ninety eight. Joseph webster wasn't arrested for that murder until two thousand and five and his trial wasn't held until two thousand six despite no evidence collected after nineteen ninety eight actually been presented at the trial at this point. If you're familiar with the bill of rights it's you might be wondering about the right to a speedy trial enshrined in the sixth amendment the most famous supreme court case on this right as barker versus winco in which the supreme court it had to consider whether to apply something known as the demand rule under this rule. The clock on the right to a speedy trial didn't start ticking until the defendant demanded a trial your honor in the present case. There's contended that the demand rule has such chills his right to a speedy trial. We had a man here who is indicted indited for willful murder now his accomplice it twice received the death penalty. This put him in the position of if he asked to mantra. I'm trying to protect his right to a speedy trial. He is possibly asking himself asking the prosecution to give in the electric chair the result if he is successful as death. This is a grisly choice push. This court condemned and favors. You're saying that he i can't be required to come in and ask for what he will later content. He should have been given automatically. I don't see that there's any <hes> the burden of when you're dealing exactly with the thing that you're requesting but the court ultimately did find a chilling effect the demand rule and instead decided to assess whether there was a violation of the right to a speedy trial by looking not only at whether the defendant made a demand man for a speedy trial but also the length of the delay the reason for the delay and the prejudice caused by the delay applying the standard the supreme court found that a five year delay between arrest and trial was extraordinary but did not prejudiced the defendant and found no constitutional violation of course there was a seven year delay in joseph webster's case between the crime and the trial but there was no arrest in nineteen ninety eight so where does that leave webster it leaves him out of luck under the right to speedy trial which usually requires an arrest to start the clock ticking but many courts including the supreme court of tennessee.
