Former Political Prisoner, Paul Manafort, Share His Story

"People know your story from afar. Tell it to us in your own words. Well, it's exactly as you just said. I mean, in 19 2016, I was targeted by the deep state, not really I don't believe we get me, although they did buy that. But really, to get Donald Trump, they thought that by coming after me, as his campaign chairman, that in order to get out of harm's way, I would agree to their narrative and particular Andrew weisman scenario who worked for bob Mueller. That Donald Trump and the campaign was colluding with Vladimir Putin and Russia. I wouldn't do it and they brought all the powers of the state in the deep state down on me. Yeah, and they target you out as trying to be almost this symbol, if you will. Of someone to Donald Trump. So in here and kind of the summer year book, political prisoner persecuted prosecuted not silenced. It talks here that they tried their best to have you turn on president Trump and you refused. Can you talk about that? Yeah, to do so, I would have had to lie. And there's no way I was going to do that. But Andrew weissmann had this crazy theory that he had totally made up. He did take a disparate facts that were true facts. And then created a timeline of knowledge that would try and put Trump ahead of the hacking of the DNC server and then authorizing through me to Roger Stone, to Carter page, the release by WikiLeaks of the dumps from the DNC acts that occurred in July and in October. The only problem with that is none of it was true. Number one, Trump didn't have advanced knowledge like weissen claimed he did. Number two, you know, I wasn't talking to Roger Stone about any of this. And number three, we had no connection to WikiLeaks or the DNC hack.

Prosecutors Tried Forcing Paul Manafort to Lie About Russian Collusion

"They really wanted you to confess the things that you hadn't done and they really wanted you to get Trump didn't they Mark that's exactly right In the book I actually detailed because after the first trial when I get a second trial coming up three weeks later in D.C. against the hospital judge and one of you tried to pick a D.C. jury they gave us and you would appreciate this A 120 pool cure of jurors 120 people at the pool because we complained we wanted to change the venue we said I couldn't get a fair trail They wouldn't do that Another 120 we had a question here that they allowed us to ask a broad number of questions One judge one we thought could be fair Over 90 of them and I talked about this in the book so they hate Trump and they hate me And so I realized I needed to cut a deal Not to give them anything but to just not go to trial again because the second trial is where the forfeiture actions are being taken And they went back 20 years of my life gobbling everything up things I gave to my kids And so I cut a deal to get the properties of my kids out of the package And as a result of that I spent 50 hours in front of weissman and Andres and that group Never intending to tell him anything but the truth While they were gleefully thinking I was going to spill the beans But in the course of that 50 hours it's a long way to answer your question I was able to decipher what weisman's theories were and Russian collusion What is our motives were what the links were and they were just crazy ideas

"And then putting it down, disconnecting, going to sleep and waking up and just having ideas about how to effectively solve this problem. Just keep coming back to it. That's the thing that I really love and I really value and I guess when coaching a thing that happens, like I said, it the big problems are in the communication space, understanding the low hanging fruit and communicating that to people effectively. And then I guess I guess I like challenges, right? Like I need the next really difficult challenge just because I'm a masochist, I guess. I like struggling mentally. I have empathy with that. The other side to that coin and we talked about this at the beginning is that I liked it too much. I really I love the hard problems and the intense things to try to figure out so much so that it took away from the rest of my life. And so that is very true. Yeah. And it's interesting. As I've actually started to put myself in those spots less, my not only quality of life, my work has gotten exponentially more successful because. You said you said it specifically, taking a step back, getting that break, you get to come back with more energy. And so if this is my first day back from work in two weeks, and I am dialed today. I can feel it. I'm going to continue to be dialed. And I'm going to take it into I'm going to go play the ten K at the 5 diamond tomorrow. And I know that I'm going to be that way because I got that break. And so I actually think it makes a lot of sense thinking more into the coach for profit thing, because not only is it about the joint.

"And i know what you put there. Because she said before some people find their unhappy. There's also the question of suicide it will be an emotional change. I think you're smart enough to you've smart enough to see this. Your self aware. I think you're smart enough to know that change is shocking. But that doesn't mean it's necessarily bad. Yes sometimes change can end up going to a bad thing you can. We can make wrong choices in our life but as you have said life is just choices and you can't ignore them when you feel it. The community's not giving this choice the other communities a that surrounds you where where they live in new york new york. Yeah the other communities. They're also not giving you this choice. Your uncle has proposed to you. Maybe you should go to public school so really. All that's happened is that the universe has given you a window and said seems like you're not feeling it. Do you wanna go through this window and see what's over there because you might love it. You might love you already know. You don't like why not go see if maybe you can find out what you love and you even said some people come back so maybe you come back maybe you learn about where you are by going somewhere else which is really kind of the the bumperstickers. Why did you bring a book of numbers. Really know where what was. But i mean i. It's true like you don't you can't get any perspective on your community from inside it. You can't maybe you'll get some perspective. Yeah and i bet your dad who i assume is probably on some level wearing a costume. Because you said he secretly an atheist. And i bet you're wrong who i could kind of for. Maybe stepped away from it or at least discovered perspective. Perspective is all in my personal opinion. And i and i think it's a logical fact. More perspective can only make you smarter. It can only give you more view though knowing can give you more exactly what it is if we give you more perspective. It seems like he wants to live honestly and that there are people in that community not living honestly. So what is the question. That's posed to us. We we touched on it you by how do you look at ultra orthodox jews like. How does that look to outsiders. Here i wanna make it very simple. Because i don't really understand most religions i. i've moved away from it. And i don't get it. I don't i don't find it important me me if someone would argue but it is important community and all this stuff. I'm not here to deny that. Okay or argue. That i would say for me for the outside. It looks like it's a lot of what i am just not into. That's when i see if an insult to them that's not an overly credit youth. That is just where you're at. But now i i wanna leave it with this caveat. Let's say someone just invites me temple. And i go into my. That was so fun like my mind. I kind of leave it open. Like what if. I went and loved it. And they're like oh well you do it. You said it was a lot of it just seems like in the summer. I had a year of hot inside functional close year of my life my first year moving here from illinois where every friday night i was at a chabad dinner and wait when you moved here. Okay and it was wonderful. It was amazing. dinner family. Thought you were like tour. Look you gotta get this guy over. He juggles he tries to juggle. But no and it was. It was a lot just even the ceremony. Those dinners which is beautiful beautiful. Yeah yeah it's all beautiful until like this. This kid starts to see through it right now. now you'll go home you don't. I'm visiting it confused by the park rides on the way home on the way home closes the door waving and he's thinking types in this cheese. Why here's i. I have a couple of things that throw out there. I'm extending conversation. We don't need to but i just wanna make sure okay all our belts here this why. I just want the dad to be a little more vocal as to why he's like. Hey look like the kid obviously knows it does. He doesn't know it does novel just in that little parent there. There's a movie there that the dad's like i'm hardcore atheist veto talk to your son. He needs to hear your perspective and then the other thing is you know. We have to keep in mind this kids talking about. We're supposed to be on. Computers are using the internet. Anything like so. There is a huge culture shock. Literally almost i would assume every single aspect of our daily lives is maybe a shock will be ishak. Could be a shock. And i'm just saying that for the pimple here to to to leave space in your mind to know you're going to be shocked and things will be overwhelming. Let being overwhelmed convince you. You've made the wrong choice. Being overwhelmed is a part of everybody's his anxiety and stress and being overwhelmed. There's no way around it. It's how you deal with it so just know that that's heading your way. Don't think that when you get to those things you've made a wrong choice. That's not necessarily true right. Just keep that in mind. I agree Write us back and let us know. I don't say this blog. I say because. I really wanna know on our patriotic. We do all the letters when we back for applies witness and yet it's the replies. Yeah so i'd love to hear everything goes no matter what choice you make. If it makes you feel like you're living your honest. Life like any said living. Honestly well that was a sticker. She's cheer for the you are is where you were when you weren't there but now you are then i'll just read it again. We are not professionals other than entertainers professional. But we do care and I care about you. And i care about your situation and so i'm going to speak for my two friends. Who say they do as well. Any is a professional. That's why we were.

"If at your core you are a person who is going to be carrying others and good and kind and decent an ask. Smart questions to get smart answers. All the other stuff is just kind of where you feel comfortable. Yeah but just. Trust yourself to go if i go to school. Well as long as you. You can't control other people being destructive right but you considers. It is going to be scary. But i am a person who try this and it feels more comfortable to me. It doesn't make me bad. The co my core is my core. It's just if you're comfortable. Can i this person will feel that way wherever wherever they are so. If you leave you're going to feel that way looking in if you stay in you're going to feel that way looking out but the main thing is that when you're thirteen you're an adolescent. You're still getting information. You're still you're still interrogation. And discover interrogating terry eating and looking and watching nor just said smart questions. What can i ask a dumb one. I wanna literally coming from a place of knowledge yup khufu. Is there a possibility. You're like what is judy. Are pen pal. Leaves sort of leaves the jewish community. Leave me an ends up finding out. Just in being a secular jew if that's a correct term That there are still things that they still get to have and take takeover from the religion. That still make them like is there is there is there. Is that even a possibility or they so far. I don't know. I mean i just kind of like. Do you mean by different version because secular person and then realize oh. I'm still jewish because I like these things just not if your mother is jewish. You're jewish that. Like the rule it gets from david cross joke. I go way he points that out and things like it isn't you don't get to decide. Go started been decided. Where if your mother's jewish free posthumous. Though i mean that was what was on done apart identify. It's totally. i mean. I don't know i can't speak to. What their communities thinks about that. Because i think. I know. I only know from like when i like when i lived. In the fairfax district the the the orthodox jews around me were like very Judgmental of me like i was worse than non-jews because i was out because he chose not. I knew there's a lot of they look at me like somebody like me. And they'd be like yeah. Of course you're not you're not but then you of course you're not morose shell you don't get it better but you they would have a feeling i'm like you know that this is the and you aren't using it. You're not you're not following roles. You're one of the chosen ones in your. Yeah you had the opportunity. So there's a lot of hassle. So i don't know. Is there a point. I mean they don't i i don't know how they were preceded. I mean for me as a reform jew. Absolutely i mean i feel like i can take from the buffet and take what i want leave. I down but that's not a that's not an orthodox writing a different version. it's a different version incur. Simplify what we are talking about with her pen pal here and to me. Here's what i am hearing. And what i i genuinely think in your to me. The bigger question is it's been proposed to me to go to public school. And i'm afraid to do that. Is that sort of. I know there's a question but no they there so like you should go to public. Here's what i think. And i it is scary and it's also easy for you to talk about someone else's experience it's easier for me but it seems to me what i am hearing that you sort of do know what you don't necessarily feel like you identify and don't like and to me. It's never worth staying in that because you're scared of the big question mark of will happen if you leave the thing you don't like and i know that is like yes but i'm here and if i leave it will cause earthquakes. Maybe a big one. Maybe a bunch of little ones but it will cause disruption. It will be a problem. It will cause drama and stress for me. I personally live my life in a way rego. But i don't like it so i'd rather have the earthquakes and the drama. Because maybe i come out on the other side finding something great and as someone and we say this on the show all the time. You're thirteen supposedly and here when you make this choice. Let's say you do hypothetical you decide to leave the community. You go to public school. You change your entire life you. You won't fully remember who you are today when you're twenty five but you may fully remember when you're twenty five. You may fully remember who you were thirteen if you stayed in the community because you might still be the same person who doesn't like what the sentence the sentence where I'd stay with a jewish costume for the rest of my life. Exactly feel that. i think he's also saying. Should i just do that. And i'm saying i. I am not professional. I hired any- give anyone let alone. Children advice all the quotes rice sentence. Just go and take that for me right but but No don't do that. I don't think it's worth it..

They might have had serious for all. We know google assists. That's an aggressive. Yeah it's a beautiful teen. i. I love this letter. We i will say this about stand by me and we were talking about like that edge of life right. Yeah and that movie ends with him being like we saw in less and less certain people in the hallways until they just became passing faces and we kind of became the people we were going to be on the road for who we were and he really felt like stephen king who wrote the body and richard dreyfuss narration. Rob reiner direction. He kind of really felt like that. It's it's not a fake not fake. He loves it they really they. They all kind of mirrored this feeling of like these turning points in your life and were getting a letter from a pen pal. Who's saying i'm at thirteen. And i'm wondering what live will i have but also like at the same time seeming to have scope for challenges and your and listens to this show that is read about is amazing. Yeah it's amazing. I mean i would say wow thirteen years old so my all. My older kid is thirteen. And i you know to reach out and try to have your own connections in the world. Even outside of a religious community is a big deal at ms age. Yes yes yes. I'm you know. Growing up. columbia is bigger right. And where did you grow up any. I grew up in san diego. Okay well proven. Greenville columbia columbia. Sorry sit down sand now. I stand our movie does is lana. Usually don't call was really close to you about being in rochelle. It's very easy to kind of grow up in your culture because you're not seeing anything else. I imagine new york being jew and seeing the other side of so many different sides of life it must be all neighborhoods are also very orthodox community in los angeles and in new york is that they are living in like another century but they're surrounded by modern life. And when i when. I used to live when i when i first came to l. a. Out of college. I lived in the fairfax district. And there are a lot of the the name her ulan. And when you first come to. La sherman oaks and then in at five pm. Everybody walks out with a white shirt. They go to the restaurant job was like be. Yeah so and i used to sit outside and communities would walk by like on their way to temple nude see and i would. I would marvel at especially like the thirteen year. Olds the kids like just coming into maturity. How are they staying in. How did he keep them in the full because all around them as evidence of saxon drugs entertainment and everything they keep them in the full and part of it was that i would look at them and think like i was really lonely at that time in my life just leaving college. You're just leaving the structure and you're kind of on your own. And they were so cocooned with family multigenerational family from through and walking together talking to each other nobody on a screen like and it was really beautiful and i always used to feel a lot of envy like. Wow they really belong like it was a time. When i hadn't i didn't feel like tribe and then but it is true though if you feel it and believe it and wanted. Imagine being thirteen or any age. He said his dad is a very well hidden atheist and feel like. I'm just going to wear a costume. So alone surrounded a community. I will say just for perspective. Yes and we don't have to go into this place but eventually we will like at the end like how does it look. I did not personally know a jewish person. Until i got to college and i didn't have any friends who are jewish until college. Yeah i had never seen a hasidic jew. Until i moved to la. So i was very late in life before. I even experience culture so when we and i don't know if there's a community in colombia it's not gotten columbia lumbia no i so i will be able to speak to that but the other thing about the fear in the public school and challenges like all. I know that community looks like in south carolina. I don't know that. I did you know that i did beat in new york. So you did. You were sure but you know. It's it's so interesting. Because i remember like starting to witness and see that community in new york it brings ups like that. That became a part of something. I visually saw at a time. When i had already decided that i am no longer. A part of catholicism going down organized that role why i didn't like the label of i don't even like the labels on me like oh well then you must be atheists i'm like what if we just don't know why do we have to be. This isn't a game show. We don't have to make hope we're right like what if you just go. I don't know. I guess i'll either find out that there's something or i won't find out anything i'll just end tony soprano and it just goes black. And that's it. I think i started to witness that community. At a time that i was in my early mid twenties i had made a choice that i did not follow catholicism anymore and i think i started to to just sort of build this confusion on my mind of well i got out of this thing. That wasn't really that strict at trying to keep me in. Like i oftentimes fantasize. Like how hard is it to leave that community. I think the same thing about like like the amish like win it is so family it is so. There's no outsiders is this us and this is what we do. It makes me wonder. Is that for your soul. Is that like a thing where you go. I love it. I love what i have with my family. We're so close. Because i go. I don't have that. do i not have that. Because that's not how. Myra my religion that i was raised. How it was but then also longer will i. I wonder how much of the world are you missing. i also wonder. Is this person thirteen. I mean that's so much we have to take it. Are we getting. I know we have to take. Don't know out. I mean so much to say this. All you don't realize when you're inside something is this Encompassing is that life outside it is just never ending barrage of choices one of the things that stress as modern people out so much is that we're constantly having to make choices every time you will feel safe in those communities taking care of all taking care of this and i don't know i don't know we humans we kinda seek some control. We get overwhelmed by overwhelmed. So i think i mean the. The reality is no matter where you are. You're going to look at another community and you're gonna kinda wonder an envy and look at. What would my place be. There could fit in there so it's totally normal. What what this kid. What you're doing is so normal and it's just evidence of like a really active mind inquisitive and wonderful mind which is wherever you are. You're going to be that way so whether you're in it whether you're out of it you're always going to be. That guy can kind of like. Look in and look out like you really. This is like an artist. Like i'm hearing someone who's who's who's an observer in an artist varies awful. Where know what i would say to. It's it's actually kind of often. What you said. Is that understand that no matter where you explore or what you question where you go or what suit you try on literally or figuratively that. That is long as you are not destructive to others or to yourself. It's okay all you can go decide one week. I want to work at a fast food restaurant and the next week. See if i can be a park ranger you can go see if you wanna be cassette catholicism. You could go chest out southern baptists..

So i'm only a penny but i really wanted to ride in so here goes. I'm thirteen. i live in a ultra orthodox hasidic community in new york. So i'm not technically supposed to use internet at all but since my father is a full blown yet very well hidden atheist i started. I started to want to go away. But from what i know. Every person that escaped ended up either taking their own lives unhappy or or even coming back. So i just thought i'd stay with the jewish jewish costume for the rest of my life but recently i thought about freedom and what my meaning in life was so i started talking with a relative. That is a college teacher. He really wants me to go to public school. But even normal people have a very hard time with school. And since i'm not even socially great with jews. I don't know if all survived school with a whole different culture so i guess i just wanted to know your thoughts or tips on what i should do. And also how do you even look at ultra orthodox acidic juice like. How does it look to outsiders anyway..

Yeah just say I think i have enough to just go. Hey look languages side. You shook me. And i will fucking cut a nine year old learned that i learned that through the ep physical to say. Could you could just trying to follow this nine year. Old around and hear what he actually knows because she is teaching the kid ally to her. She is teaching the kid to pretend. That's why you and i don't do that with our. You know we go okay. Because it's all kinds of sham. If elliott were to grow up and just go yeah. I don't prefer just everyone knows when my wife and i curse my daughter says she likes to tone it down he says. Please don't say that. And sometimes i'll be playing a podcast and she's in the car and forgotten that she's in a car and they curse and she's like can you turn this off and i'm like i totally get any i like that. You're this isn't your job But i like the i like that. That's sort of her reaction but the reality is you're going to get older and it's just language expression i don't see it now. Can i see what can rosemary. You're being disrespectful. But that's remember citation of who you are and the reason you don't walk in and say fuck is because you are being your because you are respectful personnel. Talk that way anything listening just know this. Daniel says fuck time yeah. Daniel in certain circumstances won't say fuck out of respect. Is that not the most normal expectation we should have for people. Hey just you know be appropriate beers being appropriate person right. And then i'm not saying that up pissed i think pissed knows screwed. I promise here but still bronwyn has a right to go. I hear you. i'll do my best. So i'm giving you the racing. I recognize your needs. Give me the grace of recognizing. I'm not perfect. I love it. I love it. That is a dope. Boundary setting their bronwyn. Extra points if you can work the word pissed into the i. Guess what pissed me off. Sorry sorry know. That's a red flag for you. Just want to follow up on one thing. You said about the catholic church though. Because i know that like i totally agree with you about like how rigid and confining can be especially when they're trying to please your thoughts but here's what's kind of magical and cool about language in the catholic church's tuition and says davis a jewish girl that they believe in the power of words and that were so words are not just descriptions. It's like performance right. So it's the the the best example of this is like the precinct. I now pronounce management flick. Those words make you married. You're right describe the do it. So big odd. Technically but yes. I mean it's really in the church in the eyes of the church in the church. Okay this is all belief. There also curses blessings. These words themselves have power and so that's really I don't know that i believe in it. Don't really bothers of it. Really compelling for little for young people like going into the arts like were performance becoming a writer like that idea even when it scares you a little bit when you're sitting in confessional like words but it's still it's thrilling right. It's kind of thrilling to think about. Like if i say the word something bad if i say it's far from harry potter like snail. Mary's and our fathers that this many times and you'll be even though i don't i don't really believe it. I still a little bit sometimes. Like find scared of something or if they're still little pardon me. It'll be like buddha took sure. Yeah so there's something. I don't know yeah i love it. I love catholicism. There guys pammy win you crushed at. You did nothing wrong. We're on your team. Let us know if you need us to come to town and we will be pissed off. Yeah we'll be pissed south.

"To a little kid curse and it's coming from got own plays right. You don't know how entertaining it is. A little one was about about five she. I gave her a stuff fox for christmas and she goes on. I'm going to call it sir being. I'm like we couldn't talk about it. I was like i didn't think of that. It's just one mellon chain so it was like points for it being so funny. She didn't quite know what you not technically fine. They're just. I love mine like played around with that. It made me. Let me ask you before we roll out of this. The question the other side of this letter is what do you do when you another person is telling you your language makes me uncomfortable share which actually is not the real thing. Because here's the deal. I tend to not use a curse words around my grandma. Rosemary banker right. The reason i don't is because on. Just let's just call it like it is just flat in a vacuum. I don't speak that way. Because i care so much about. What upsets her. Yeah so but in this scenario this woman saying i i came here. Let me put it this way. I care so much about what upsets my grandmother. Despite the fact that it's commonplace. She's saying about her sister cousin as she saying about her cousin is. I don't care about the thing that upsets you. That is very commonplace. Because of you did care you would feel the way i feel about rosemary right. Here's the difference. The cousin is not just representing that. It's not cousin saying don't do this. This is how it makes me feel. They're saying don't do this. Because i'm representing. How i want my daughter to feel. Yeah now you're like well you don't really get to like make you parent. Don't get me wrong. But like you're representing a third party like if it's just you and your house not going to use that language but if you go to my house it. That's how i feel about well. Here's what i think. And i and obviously we don't know much personally but soon we will because over the years We bond with bills have room for another new always have room for so many bruins But here's what. I think i think bronwyn is a normal practical hundred nice person present. And maybe if you don't shush or shush But instead let the moment happen and then go. I know how this sound saying the cousin could you. Could you please just not curse around the kid. it's i. i know. I know that you do. And i know that we're coming from different places. And so i was just like the person who's i guess. My guess is. If that's how that happens agron win doesn't even right because you're not a context. You're not shushing. Yeah you're you're express. I think broncos. Dirtbag has a right to go. I totally hear you understand. No one changes who they are in one conversation so as much as i might think like dante the effort to try i might draw bitch right but i need you to understand me drop in. That bitch comes from comes from an open book. Rather than rather than a like. Rather than like gotcha you know what i mean because when you have someone there almost telling you like you know how you're supposed to behave and you did. Yeah yeah yeah. Oh here's what a little bit of grace. Okay what were you going underneath it. It's always just like hey your feelings matter to you. Don't you don't have to tell your cousin fuck coffee. You can tell your cousin like you feel bad the way you can get their about. I care about. I don't wanna to would be like. I hear you but test. I'd i hear you hear with i think the move and bronwyn feel free to take this but i think the move is to randomly and for no reason shish her back later stage yeah. I don't know be fun to watch moving. Sh- can you now suggestions not wishing her too much and this is this is no no way to live but my brain is always like oh show show show someone what what bothered you as opposed to having an adult conversation. No no do it back to them so they can see how it made. You feel which is no way to live. And i know that's no way to live but honestly treat people the way we want to be treated but as i always say sometimes sometimes creating someone the way they're asking me to treat them. Yeah like sometimes the other end. I don't know if you get the phrase completely. I do what i said this to my mom. She's i just remember the golden rule do unto others. You've had them into you. And i go right so sometimes i am the other end of that. That person is doing something at the sort of infant in. If you're doing it she goes. Well that's why they're never. I'm only being a bit. Because that's how he wants me to do on him. Because when you're when you come from a place of respect like when you're with rosemary you wanna be you want to do things to her santer because that's a sign of respect respect right special on some level she saying i care more about commonplace than respect right to her own cousin on some level but also her cousin like you were saying can come in and be like. Hey i also love. The bronwyn can go that. There's a shitty way in a nice way to tell somebody and they'll say honestly feelings. I love a good hurt. My feelings really settle somebody down on. Yeah we had landed here in a long time. But i'll tell you what bronwyn this is. A classic case of an f. two f. that needs to happen here's what i think you do you..

"You motherfucker your first friends and family come here buddy that has to go. That's did happen go. Well that's going to be in a scene. I i'm just like going in the notebook. Go talk like you know. She doesn't know like god bless her but like what's actually going on what those kids are actually saying. She has like the she's just trying to control like and trying to make you feel less than well i are. They're very religious are they. Like we're always at what you said. What are what religion are they. They're piscopo alien or as church. Not jewish jewish catholic. Fun catholics at choice. It's like it's catholic. But they shaved a couple rules. Were hey we get it. Roy moore formality. It's that their breath. O'cl it's it was. It was kind of like putting me my place class. White trash their fancy. This is a way of saying that. But i was like yes. What you turn your back your kids trash corrupt interests like this woman. You're not corruption that kid right. Well she has to deal with her they. That's the i want to get. An apple has an interesting choice. Because i remember last year. Two years ago we were hanging out at. It might have been one of our poor. Chang's dropped an f bomb. And then i was like oh shit sorry and use that suit which is to criticize us strikes and you said i don't know we don't we don't care around elliott we talk and we're going to trust that as she grows. We teacher one is appropriate to use language. Like in your like her. We don't say that here. We don't say that around them. I'm gonna trust my. I'm going to trust my child. Yes i think. I understand contextual appropriate because when they just learn it from their friends and however they've learned whatever there's no contextual learning to it they're just learning the words hoping they don't accidentally say it around their parents. You are saying these exists. I will be the one who introduced you to them. And i will introduce you to appropriateness right and i all of that stems from. I grew up going to catholic school and the The rules and the the way. You're supposed to compose yourself which i'm not fully against all of it like i think there is you know finding our boundaries are and how to behave in a certain way. Sure it's great. But i remember. Cursing was such a horrible thing that it almost made me obsess over a thing. That now that i'm older and i just curse all the time i'm like that was never thing but yet in school you're taught like well when you talk like that you're now now god's mad and as a kid that informs your reality that you're like oh i got i i can't stop thinking about the word falker shit or whatever. Yeah and and the level of energy. The amount of energy and distraction and guilt that i felt for thinking it and you know you're just a kid so your brain doesn't flip over and go. Well you're just you. It's not your fault that you're thinking something and you don't ever go to that you feel and then you know because of catholicism you go to like confession and you're like confessing. I thought about a bad word and and so to me. It's like it's putting so much into a thing that it's just not with our daughter. I truly i've told her i go. There's going to be instances where you're not supposed to curse and if you do and you get in trouble then you get in trouble but with me and your mom and you know all almost all of our friends. i came. Imagine a friend that would care but it with me and your mom. I don't care. I don't care what you do. I don't want you to do at school. Because i don't want you to be the kid. That's you know getting other kids to you know in case they shouldn't be talking like that so if she stubs her tone the f. word felt very appropriate to you. I'm not gonna come down on you but if you say. Fu to me and your mom. We're talking about sure actionable entitled on the ground. That doesn't mean you get to throw that people don't think she sees those words as words of course not yet. No dad she will. But it's so funny. Maybe you have this too since you have a similar philosophy. But she'll be like dad. I can't think of this bad word. I'm like what is it. Just say it say it a lot and then you don't think of it guards fuck fuck fuck. Little kids listened.

Team coco that i know has i can say with confidence. Listens to this. Show sure and gets it great. I can't say other seven to the people don't have to listen.

I really like this letter researcher. In this person not just structure pointed out structure like side note main body hearing main body. I am very close with my second cousin and and amc considered an auntie to her nine year old daughter. My cousin is very religious. Whereas i left are very cultus church. A while ago since my niece was born my cousin has been giving me shit about the language. I use when her daughter can hear love. That shit is in that. Now i love well-placed profanity. I love them all a good motherfucker or sometimes the only thing that makes the situation bearable. I get that. Maybe saying douchebag in front of a toddler with no filter can be a problem but my niece is nine years old nine not quite ten not quite an ten ten ten and today i got hsushed. You say if if if i am describing what someone did to me as shift i am pissed off. Nobody wants to get shot. But you don't so you don't say shushed. Because i love if i'm saying if i say such a stupid the actual pronunciation i'm the pronunciation. Shush pronounciation pro pernet pronoun pronounciation us now. The show has started shushing but shushed it. Shush is so fun because it's just stupid and he's on the pit but if i'm looking at someone i go do not shush me i do. Yeah oh it's humiliating yesh exact. That is the perfect is there. Time is ever is finished with sandwich. That sandwich this thing. Right now And today i got shushed by my cousin for saying i was quote unquote pissed shushed. Like i was an unflagging rulli kid acting up in a library. I love my cousin and my niece i want them to feel comfortable and spend time with me but at what point can i tell my cousin that she's going to have to deal with the fact that i'm going to use language.

Tv plus show physical with rose byrne and yours truly and so many other talented people and We can't believe we have today. Ladies and gentlemen any wiseman welcome. I'm so excited to be here. A pump hell did people are going to have a anything exciting. A writer to talk to on the expected their expectation with us. Is you better. I don't think they care about anyone's occupation. They they need people to be just rad. Can i i think that all of our pennies and are like if daniel maury are going to talk about it. It's going to be good and so they would probably extend the same feeling too if daniel or you're gonna have a pen pal on the show with them. They're going to be good. Yeah so yeah. I and i would like to say this because i i i. I don't think people realize this. I'm maybe they do but all the almost almost all of the things that people love in entertainment started with a writer. Oh ours speak in my writing. Especially when i say almost all. I'm only eliminating reality television. Kelly even that has unpaid writers. The you know the mat like the really magical thing when you're doing it right. Is that people fall in love with the characters but there is that really odd little bit of magic where the actor becomes the character so out in public. You are the spokesperson for the character about it. For all of the things the choices remake person for your imagination at the end of the day. You're like well did kind of come out of my like if you really wanna talk about who this character came from and if you wanna like you know she's talking about danny rubin Just a such a great part of the show. I just love you start. Re-categorised man's wife. That's how i care to really could be more involved in. The marriage is not as attentive. Could be better yeah. I guess that's true that's interesting we look at just a a spokesperson for this thought. What were you saying. We hope will happen as a writer. Hope that like you kind of disappear and people believe in worry skull as skies that they've come to you on the street and ask you about this character. Not so much about me like the goal is that you're kind of invisible words. Those that works really. Well it's sort of like ben you're sitting back. There was a writer sometimes going well. I created all these people you know. What do you think is the success rate for you in your career as a writer. The what's the success rate where you go. I'm i'm very happy with where that character landed with that actor like say if you did like a hundred what do you think your numbers are you going.

"I mean that's that's honestly that's probably. I mean. that was the question i got. And it's certainly one of the one of the things in pillow that i struggle with when i watch when i watch people play and when i'm playing just finding those offs that are that aren't obvious. Yeah it takes a lot of time. It's not intuitive. That's the big thing. A lotta the reason why you asked that question and almost everyone i work with has the same question is that is just not right. It's not intuitive and a lot of situations and so. That's why i want to give this overall contract to work with and then your job. Your homework is to go home and figure out okay. In this scenario what equity does my hand how immediately equity there's a roof my opponents range. Do i have too much equity looking. Just be calling. So i have not enough equity to call it. Tried to turn into a bluff because also had these other removals in it right. That's the game appeal. Loads is complicated. Because it's a lot. It's this tug of war that you have with your own hand because it's doing so much in terms of the information it's providing a lot of situation right right that makes sense actually and one of those like this. This is too good to bluff with. Or do i need to turn his hand into a blow off so forth and so on Okay so let's get some some questions. People have asked year so many said multi way multi hands pre flop late position. What kind of ranges. or. How do i can structure range for isolating villain with a size raise as opposed to smaller sizing to build a multi way pot. Does the question make sense. It does but it shows a lack of understanding on this is. This is a very very very widely asked question okay. The the biggest thing that question shows me is that the person who's asking it doesn't have a fundamental understanding of how the way kilo works because.

I wanna do a little bit of a history of like how long this technology's been around and if you don't know like the super details of that that's that's totally fine. Do know the super details because ali written scientific papers about it s okay. I'm these ing. Okay now a lot of scientists have worked on marnie vaccine's over the years philip. Feltner catalan carrico. Drew weisman just to name a few. The work really started in the seventies but it wasn't until the nineties that scientists are testing out. The first marinate vaccines in mice. Most vaccines like the flu. Shot or whooping cough vaccine use bits and pieces or weakened form of the virus or bacterium to build up immunity but the amarna vaccines are not a whole virus. Or a whole. What you're putting in is a piece of just a piece of coding sequence. That then has your body make that single protein for instance one of the corona viruses proteins causes an immune response. That will protect you later when your body encounters the real thing. So that's the idea but there were two challenges researchers had deal with to get to where we are now with. Mri vaccines one challenge. Was that the. Mr is very and gets degraded very quickly and so it doesn't last very long and so the first challenge that has had to be overcome was to find the right way to formulate it. So i'd like to think of this as eminem so if you were to hold plain chocolate in your hands that chocolate would melt because your hands warm and so what happened was eminem's are away putting a candy coating around it so that you can now hold them in your hands.

"But you do need to do it in a way. That doesn't hamstring you. One quick note. It may not just be the timber wolves pick and maybe the warriors bad as as they've shown time so we'll see where this goes it may be too top five top eight top ten whatever in a strong draft and if weisman blossoms into a star still a little early for that the a good indication so far but yeah they may have that rare ability to pull off the smoothest transition from championship era dynasty era to the next era without having to bottom out in a major way or bottom out for too long like they they kinda did bottom out in terms of record this past year but weird circumstances with klay out and all that stuff but they might be able to thread that needle. It's really tough to do. And but you want curry therefore it if if at all possible the one thing i'll say just in supportive of your your framing which is like. Let him hit free agency. he'll be thirty four at that time right. And so how many teams even if the if the fear we're we're going to lose them for agency. How many teams are going to go. Max out of thirty four year old Especially a smaller guard who. They don't generally age as well probably. There's probably not a lot of risk there unless you know say it's charlotte. Who just wants to bring him home and like you know have plant a flag. You'll put up. Put a nice little know flagging their kappa. Whatever i don't think there's a lot of danger there. I guess the other danger though is more of are you. Are you doing a disservice as it insulting in some way to steph curry to say you know what we're waiting waiting for free agency. We we just have to see where we are in hand and how you look like. Is that the wrong way to treat a guy who's much the franchises at the wrong signal to send to other stars and their agents and their families because that is. There's a political reality to chris. You do have to factor in perceptions and just wanting to show that we're the kind of franchise that always takes care of its own. I get that. Although i would argue that writing checks the total forty five million dollars in that last season is thanks enough. I mean i mean you. And i know it's never that simple. It isn't right.

NBA Draft Rumor Mill

"Two thousand and twenty. Nba draft rumors whether those trade rumors talking about where we're hearing particular players going. We've talked about all the big names already. We've talked about hard and we talked about chris. Paul we've talked about dennis schroder. We've talked about russell westbrook. We talked about minnesota. We talked about golden state. We talked about charlotte. The bulls are sitting there at four. And it's been really interesting. Dinnie obvious name's been floated about. I've heard from multiple sources that that is sheer speculation because of their general manager. Who's an international guy. And what he did in. Denver has nothing to actually do connected with this pick. La bella ball could be there for chicago. Which would be very interesting in the back court that they currently have there. And i've heard a lot of therese albert. I'm here as well as a culture guy and one of the big things that chicago is focusing on his culture right. Now who do you see taking at ford. They have a guy. I applaud the bulls because they have really done a good job of not telegraphing. What they're doing you know they've been connected to a lot of these guys. They've done an above average job. Relative to when teams are leaky of keeping this close to the best And so it's who they end up with. I think if ball is there he makes tons of sense. That's a nice fit with you guys have and the need for a passer and the fact that there are other scorers on the roster where he's not gonna act like be the only guy who's creating anything that's a pretty nice fit so we'll see if he's there we dug into lamelo earlier so i'm not gonna harp on that fit but let's say he's not there and i think allah is a real option. I agree that some of it is the speculation but he does kinda fit their roster as well and i've heard again obi topping. Who's come up for them. A anthony grants Coach dayton was on billy donovan staff previously thunder. So they're obviously going to be well informed about top into. There's some thought that billy donovan can have some input on what they do here. But it's hard to know exactly what his type of player is is. In oklahoma city you had prestige san prestige Decisions with burst now. So how burton has come up another dark horse. I think for that spot. And i'm still not entirely sure what to make of this but it's patrick williams who i know there's at least some degree real interest there. Would they take him at four. It wouldn't be like totally crazy. At this point. It would be high for him. But i mean maybe that's their secret. They have their sleeve It's really tough for me to predict too but right now my guess would be that if there is no ball. I still lean audio. But i don't think it's like a foregone conclusion. I think people are trying to figure chicago right now. Let's talk about patrick williams because it seems to be a foregone conclusion that everybody thinks detroit's taking him it's of and so now the question is will even be there at seven which you know a few weeks ago probably would have been seen as madness. But i've heard talk that. Atlanta is interested in him. I've heard talk. That cleveland is now interested in him. The most of the talking. Cleveland centers around obi top in and dinnie omnia there. And now you're mentioning chicago at four with patrick williams heck widen on the warriors taking to. Is you know patrick williams is. This is the next upside guy right like after you talk about ball edwards and weisman. I think mini scouts see him the next guy he only averaged nine points a game at florida state but that he has this big big ceiling right that he could that he could fit into as a team. Just as a prospect. Is it possible. He's getting over hyped at this point. Do you really see him. As a player that has the next highest ceiling in this draft after ball edwards. In wiseman i have to admit like. I'm not all the way there with him. I have had him graded as a lottery. Guy for a long time towards the end the college season i was like that guy is gonna go ten to twelve. And that's where i had him now. Yeah i didn't expect this type of leap. I guess we might have predicted it because team sent to be a little bit predictable this time of year. You know the the upside guy always the guy. It's without quite john right now but yeah. I think he's very much an idea. And it's worth re-emphasizing that you know. His his body obviously is really promising in terms of how it will hold up defensively. He's going to be versatile. On that end he will have to get a little bit more agile laterally but his is. The value so young is really helpful. Obviously a big factor. You know being the youngest college player in this draft so between that and then you see flashes were really had a pull up jumper. He's did pretty well from the line. I think there's a pretty good chance. He's an above average three point shooter in now you're talking about well. Hey maybe this is a floor spacing combo forward. You can check out. He'll buck shots. He will play good team. Defense and be switchable. That's a pretty in this draft especially when we're like how do we find like even just like a high level player that case is pretty egypt's let's let's say we take that case for. I mean that's a pretty comparable high and dry or if not better. So i see it what i do it at four. I don't know but i understand why this is happening. And i think there teams that you might wanna come up and get him. And that's probably what the pushing them up. The board as well wants wants everybody found out. Detroit was the floor. Change the conversation. It really does. and there. Is this weird psychological dynamic in the draft. That i love it every year. You know jeremy because this thing takes hold oh you like him at seven now. Maybe we at six like there. Is this conversation that starts to happen with these with these boards. And so you know there's so much data and there's so much scouting that's put into this. But the psychology of the draft is the most fascinating fascinating

U.S. charges Russian military hackers

"A story for you. May Two thousand seventeen voters in France went to the polls to elect a new French president just like in our election the before then Russian intelligence agencies in the Russian government played hard in the French election that year russian-owned websites pushing outlandish rumours about the centrist candidate Emmanuel macron. Those rumors were then processed into pieces Russian state media outlets. macron's rival was a far right candidate named Marine Le Pen she had inherited from her Holocaust denying Father Control of Francis Post. World War Two Fascist Party. So it was the neo-fascist party running against macron. Lapenne far-right neo-fascist campaign was explicitly bankrolled by a Russian state controlled bank. Marine Le Pen went to Moscow and met with Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin during the campaign. This was not subtle. But it was. Too much for Russia to pass up a divisive racist far right fascist candidate injecting chaos into the elections in a major. European. Democracy in twenty seventeen that's like catnip to Russia. Right? They want to undermine democracy everywhere. They will undermine Western countries in general however they can. But Russia's saved its boldest move for the eve of that French. Just two days before the vote. Russian. Hackers part of the same Russian military unit that had disseminated hacked democratic emails during the twenty, sixteen American election the before. They dumped tens of thousands of files, online, nine gigabytes of stolen emails and other information all hacked from Emmanuel Macron's campaign, and that might have become the dominant news story of the final weekend of that campaign. Before French voters went to the polls. It might have actually ended up upending that election if it were not for a quirk of French law, which imposes a media blackout on anything relating to the campaign for full day before voting starts all the way through until polls close on election day. That blackout period in French law precedes this whole scandal with Russia messing with the French election. But it ended up saving the day. The material that was hacked by Russian intelligence got posted online and France just hours before media blackout period began just minutes before the blackout began at midnight that night the macron campaign issued a statement warning that the hackers had inserted forged fake documents into the hack stolen material they pleaded with the media to not report on that junk. And the media didn't. They stuck to the rules. And in the end, Emmanuel macron beat the far-right neo-fascist Marine Le Pen by more than thirty points. And there's a couple of reasons for us be thinking about sort of relearning the story of that. Two thousand seventeen French election right now one is that the intelligence community is raising the alarm that Russian intelligence is executing an operation just like the one they did in France on us right now the supposedly Biden scandal that Rudy Giuliani has been shopping the scandal he. Managed to get printed in the New York Post which president trump has been gleefully promoting ever since including posing with a copy of that paper in the Oval Office that junk that Giuliani has been promoting is being actively investigated by federal investigators as potentially part of a hostile foreign influence operation illegally targeting our election and the intelligence community is investigating this Johnny on the spot. In part because they saw this coming in advance, this is in the New York Times last week quote, The Times reported last January the Ukrainian company were Hunter Biden was once on the Board respond had been hacked by the same Russian Intelligence Unit that hacked the Democratic National Committee in two thousand, sixteen last month US intelligence analysts contracted several people with knowledge of that hack. Asking them for further information because they picked up chatter that stolen burris, my emails would be leaked in the form of an October surprise among their chief concerns was that the burris material would be leaked alongside forged materials and it it's to hurt Biden's candidacy as Russian. Hackers did when they dumped real e mails alongside forgeries ahead of the French elections in two thousand seventeen. So that's what they did to Macron in two, thousand, seventeen they hacked all install all of this stuff from his campaign than they mixed it up with Ford stuffing dumped it right before the election. That's what the US intelligence community said. They believed was going to happen with Barista and sort of October surprise firm Rudy Giuliani. Thank right on time Rudy Giuliani shows up some emails from a mysterious source that are totally unverified and unverified able and only one Rupert Murdoch owned right wing tabloid will air that junk. Put it in their paper. So. That's one reason. The Russian operation in the two thousand, seventeen French election newly relevant to our lives right now, the Russians may be trying that exact same trick all over again except we don't have media blackout rules. The other reason that that two thousand seventeen Russian operation in France is newly relevant. Is that the guys who did it just got indicted by the US Justice Department today? Here they are the Russian military intelligence hackers who carried out that operation to interfere in the French election in two thousand seventeen the Justice Department says in the indictment today that these guys also launched major malware and hacking operations that shut down the power grid in Ukraine that hit the parliament in the nation of Georgia that chemical weapons investigators in the UK and Europe who were looking into the Russian poisoning of former Russian spy, Sergei scruple who was poisoned with a Russian nerve agent on British territory they say, they also orchestrated hacks that hit hospitals in companies. In the United States. They also organize tax that hit the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics quite a list. And? Although. One of the Russian hacker that was indicted today was previously indicted by Robert Muller in two thousand eighteen for his role in the hacking operation against the twenty sixteen election here in the US, today's indictment of these Russian hackers doesn't include any charges related to American election interference this year. That said the election. The American election is two weeks from tomorrow. It's hard to look today's indictment without trying to understand how it relates to our own election and what the Justice Department is trying to signal here. Is that the right way to look at this. Joining us now is Jeremy Bash. He served as chief of staff at the CIA and at the Defense Department under President Obama Jeremy Nice to see. Thanks for making time. It, Rachel. So, this is a lot. Going on the surprise announcement today from the Justice Department about the indictment of these Russian hackers when you look at this with your background in intelligence and your understanding of what Russia has done to target our democracy and others. What do you think is most important here for people to understand. Well I think was most important is that the GRU this Russian military organization that was responsible for the two thousand Sixteen Hacking Dump Operation Against the Democrats that was responsible for the two thousand seventeen election appearance in France as you noted, and is responsible for these militias cyber attacks globally including, against us, hospitals and. They are very active. They're very capable and they are in fact probably behind this this Russian. Intelligence operation at least a looks and appears to be Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign. Last. Week Andrew Weisman, who is part of the Miller investigation wrote in Law Fair about the decision that was made by bill bar earlier this year this spring to drop criminal charges against Russian companies that had participated in the attack on our election in two thousand sixteen and that didn't actually get a lot of attention when it happened in March I think in part because the country was overwhelmed by what was starting to happen to us in terms of covid why spent makes the case that before may have acted essentially improperly in dismissing those charges essentially signaling to Russia that the. US Criminal Law wouldn't be used against them as a tool if they wanted to interfere in the election this year I'm wondering if this might be a signal in the other direction, if this might be some sort of signal to brushback rush intelligence ahead of what appears to be their ongoing efforts to boost trump in his reelection effort. Hartono, racial. But what we do know is that there are mixed signals being sent by the US government here. Today we have the Justice Department indicting Russian hackers, but you've got the president of the United States welcoming condoning what looks apparently like a Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign remember Rachel that Rudy Giuliani. In Kiev, with Andrei Dirk Catch Ukrainian lawmaker who has been assessed by US intelligence and announced by our Treasury Department to be a Russian asset for the last decade. Giuliani goes to Kiev meets with Dir cash and he comes back and low these many months later, Giuliani surfaces up with these a very mysterious emails. So every Intelligence Professional Rachel that I've talked to the last twenty four hours says that this walks like a Russian intelligence disinformation campaign this talks like a Russian intelligence to information campaign. This is most likely Russian intelligence is permission campaign against the Biden team.

Mueller prosecutor says special counsel 'could have done more' to hold Trump accountable

Mueller prosecutor says special counsel 'could have done more' to hold Trump accountable

"A former top prosecutor on special counsel Bob Miller's team writes in a new. Tell all book where law ends that the Group failed to fully investigate trump's financial ties and should have stated explicitly in their report that they believed he obstructed justice. Andrew Weissmann claims that Muller's efforts were limited by the ever present threat of trump disbanding their office and by their own reluctance to be aggressive against a sitting president. The team made sure it's work was logged into a computer system in a way so that it would be preserved if trump got rid of Mueller but Weissmann says the pressure caused them to pull punches. He likens it to a sword of Damocles hanging over all of their investigative decisions, leading them at certain times to act much less forcefully and more defensively than they would have if they were investigating anyone but the president. Weisman says it led them to delay and ultimately forego entire lines of inquiry though were quite promising particularly regarding this president financial ties to Russia. This bothered him deeply because in America no one is supposed to be above the law not even the president here is a key paragraph from Weisman's new book which comes out next week, and which we got an early copy of he writes quote. We still do not know if there are other financial ties between the president and either the Russian government or Russian oligarchs. We do not know whether he paid bribes to foreign officials to secure favourable treatment for his business interests a potential violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. That would provide leverage against the president. We do not know if he had other Russian business deals in the works at the time he was running for president how they might have aided or constrained his campaign or. Even if they are continuing to influence his presidency. Weisman was considered one of the top prosecutors at the justice, department had been a senior supervisor before Muller brought him onto his team. Now he teaches it Nyu law school in the book. Whitesman lays particular blame on Muller's number two errands assembly for stopping investigators from taking a broader look at trump's finances and he writes that he wonders whether investigators quote gave it their all Weisman lambasts attorney general bill bar for among other things giving the public a deeply misleading four-page summary of Moore's work before the full report was released publicly. bowlers report was far more damning than the anodyne description that bar put out. It was upon reading bars misleading four-page memo that Weisman decided yet moral obligation to write this book. Weisman is critical of Molar himself for not stating plainly that he concluded trump obstructed justice which Weisman says the evidence clearly shows Weissmann said in an interview on Monday with my colleagues Matt Sabotage and Spencer Sue that he told more, he would have stated that conclusion in the teams final report. More. Critically, Weisman complains how he felt more was wrong not to green light issuing a subpoena for trump's testimony, and he also details how he personally pressed the special counsel repeatedly to do so. The office also declined to compel testimony from the President's son Donald Trump Junior, or even to seek an interview with first daughter Ivanka trump who was involved in a lot of the potential misconduct described in the final report. Weisman's primary task was to lead the team called Team N, which investigated former trump campaign chairman Paul manafort for financial crimes in hopes that he'd flip to become a useful witness another team team are was tasked with exploring whether the trump campaign had coordinated with Russia to influence the election and another team six hundred was tasked with exploring whether trump had obstructed justice. Weisman is critical of that ladder team teams six hundred saying that an FBI agent assigned to it complained to him that it was quote pulling its punches and shooting down her views. And weisman alleges that its leader Mike driven another veteran former prosecutor. Confided in him privately that he would not have been. So mealy mouthed about saying the president had obstructed Justice Weisman's says driven. told him quote if you and I were in charge this is not how it would read. I should say here that Zebedee Moeller Andrew even did not respond to our requests for comment about what said about them in the book.

And in this song, the rarest and most interesting element is snort sounds like this. Just. Like a smart and the whole song seems to be an introduction for these snorts in the earliest parts of the song smarts are relatively rare. But as the song continues, they become more common resulting in a snort crescendo. The increase in smarts reflect the animals in our emotional state as they become more excited or more aggressive, their songs become well snorter. And those snorts according to Weisman's findings also become louder and harsher. The snorts study in the journal Animal Behavior. Weisman thinks that the snort crescendo together with the increasing harshness makes the songs impossible to ignore and grabbed the attention of other higher axes which makes sense. Harshness is a salient feature in the sounds of crying newborns, barking dogs and frame the piglets. Acoustic harshness is routinely used in movie soundtracks to increase tension and. It might be that the. North's are actually what what's keeping the listeners listening as a lot of times.

The Ghost Lights of Brown Mountain

"Brown mountain is a low line. Mine Ridge approximately one point five miles long in the Pisgah national forest near Morganson North Carolina. Since at least early early twentieth century mysterious eliminations known as the Brown Mountain Lights have been seen there perhaps more significantly as the fact that many of the people that let's see these lights vanish on October. Twenty eleven dozens of individuals claimed to have seen the lights that same night. Thirty people camping nearby went missing. Local law enforcement opened an investigation but to date. No conclusion regarding the missing campers have been reached back in one thousand nine hundred fifty two project blue book the Air Force's conservative effort to look into. UFO's launched an extensive study of Brown Mountain. Elton and concluded that the lights could not be explained but that there was no connection between the lights and the people that had vanished after seeing them but in eighteen fifty fifty two an incident occurred to substantiated. The legend a woman had disappeared in the local stock that the husband had killed her. The local community came together the other to search for the body when it became too dark to continue. The search strange lights appeared on Brown Mountain. Superstitions of the time led in some of the community to believe that the lights represented the spirit of the dead woman. Come back to haunt her husband. The search ended without finding the body. But but the next day it was determined that many of the searchers had disappeared. Another incident concerned plantation owner. who was hunting on Brown Mountain? When he didn't return by nightfall his slaves went out with lanterns and search and never returned? Local folklore contains dozens of accounts of the people see the lights and vanishes shortly thereafter by nineteen sixty the legend of Brown mountain lights and a number of disappearances was immortalized. A song by Scott Wiseman the legend of the Brown Mountain Lights in nineteen ninety. Nine Chris. Carter's x files episode. Field trip shuddered around the lectern Brown Mount back in one thousand nine hundred ninety two. US Geological Survey was conducted and it was determined that those that had seen the lights. We're actually seeing lights from a train or campers fires but shortly after the USGS study. There was a massive flood in the area. All power was knocked out. Train tracks washed away. The train was unable to traverse the area and during that entire period the lights of Brown mountain were visible and those in close proximity to or around. The mountain vanished. The Legend Lights Brown mountain unlike many rural regional channel stories and folklore have not faded with time no less than five musicians from the area including Sonny James and Roy. Orbison have kept the legend live in Song Television Weird or what ancient aliens and mystery hunters of focused on the lights of Brown. Now in two thousand fourteen the lights were the centerpiece of the movie. Alien Abduction in book form. It was Kathy Rights. Speaking in bones the lights can be seen from the Blue Ridge Parkway at milepost three ten and three a one and from the Brown mountain overlook along North Carolina Highway one eighty one. Near Jones Ridge North Carolina additionally good sightings of the lights have been reported from the top of Table Rock and Weisman's view view both located in the Louisville Gorge Wilderness. The best time of year to see them reportedly September in twenty twelve. The Brown Mountain Lights Symposium was held in nearby town of Morgantown at the Municipal Auditorium. The event was attended by thousands. So skeptics others. Who claimed to have seen the lights of all the reports of lights in the sky over the past centuries abductions impossible?

Memphis is giving the middle finger to the NCAA over James Wiseman's eligibility

Memphis is giving the middle finger to the NCAA over James Wiseman's eligibility

"Of the weekend involves one of the biggest names in the sport fourth presumptive number one overall pick of the two thousand twenty NBA draft Memphis Freshman. James Wiseman instable a as you probably heard has inform Memphis that James Wiseman is quote likely in eligible among other things. The school announced Friday. That wise was going to be withheld from competition. Based on a rule interpretation issued by the incident this all being being tied to Penny Hardaway provided the Wiseman family with approximately eleven thousand five hundred dollars for the university called quote moving expenses. That's back when wiseman moved from Nashville. GO TO MEMPHIS in two thousand seventeen at the time. Penny Hardaway was the coach at East High School in Memphis Wiseman he ultimately enrolled at East High School in Memphis and this would be possible. NCWA regardless of the specifics. But what makes it an undeniable. NCWA issue is that in two thousand Seventeen Penny Hardaway was a memphis booster booster according to the way the NCAA defined such thing so what we have here if you destroy all the details away is a memphis. Booster providing a sizable amount of money to a five star. Prospect prospects mother to get the family to move to Memphis and then that five star prospect enrolled at the University of Memphis. There's just no logical way to argue. That's not against NCWA NCWA rules in Memphis again. Prepared to withhold. James Wiseman from competition as early as Friday afternoon. That's where we were. Why has been on the verge being held out of games but then later Friday afternoon wiseman and his attorney Leslie balanced went to court and got a temporary restraining order in Memphis in decided to allow wise men to play in Friday night's game against Illinois Chicago and for what it's worth Penny Hardaway is on record? He has said James Wiseman will continue to play next against Oregon important on on Tuesday night. Now some have suggested that the temporary restraining order force Memphis to play WII. That's just not true. No court can force a school or a coach to play a player. Even when as is good as James Wiseman Memphis simply opted to play James Wiseman for better or worse they bold move for many reasons it could lead to the Tigers first two games and any other Games Games wiseman plays in being vacated it could also lead to bigger instable issues because in the instabilities is Memphis is right now knowingly using a player it has been told hold is quote likely in eligible. So there's a lot to unpack here. Obviously but let's just start right here in Orlando what you think of Memphis is decision to play. James Wiseman under these circumstances because it is definitely not how schools typically handle these types of situations. I Love Memphis decision to play him. Because it makes for a fascinating standoff here. I Hate Memphis decision to play. Play him because my issue with this story. Perish is the institutions that have failed James Wiseman and how how he is likely to be on the wrong end of this and essentially serving as the only victim of this perhaps the Memphis program. I'm at large you know not having James Wiseman at some point in perpetuity for the remainder of the season. If we get to that point its final. Four hopes certainly take a masset but why why isn't who is trying to become the number of picking the two thousand twenty. NBA draft to be able to play for his adopted opted hometown. And here's my problem and take this where you may take it okay. Penny Hardaway becomes a booster twelve twelve years ago when the his Alma Mater ops to build hall of fame wing and his name and he is obviously a key part of that. I get all that okay. Now when that my issues intention here when that happens Penny Hardaway becomes booster. James Wiseman is there's no even real. I thought that who ever played college basketball. That point seven eight years old so then Penny Hardaway eventually gets into the coaching business. And it's been well documented community many places as to why he became a coach. That's actually a very inspirational ernest kind of story. At the grassroots level and at the high school level then James James Wiseman develops into a number one type prospect in his class wild playing on the other side of the same but while playing in Nashville so the family is moved from Nashville to Memphis. For a number of reasons. You can be cynical about it and I would encourage that But one of them Apparently because Weisman sister attended the University of Memphis Penny Hardaway agrees to help pay the moving fees as a side note It does not cost eleven thousand dollars to move all your stuff from one place to another. That is an exorbitant amount of money. And I'm sure the particular details as to Penny Hardaway providing that money what it really went to aside for moving. I'm sure those have been talked about at length and I would assume receipts have been provided. Perhaps they haven't perhaps it's a major major sticking point with this case because that is a significant amount of money we are told James Wiseman is not privy to any of this information. Now the fights against this by saying doesn't matter because and we've talked about you know these kinds of situations overall these overarching situations at Sylvia's okay specifically at Kansas. He was going to be sad for two years for not knowing what was happening and reduced it to just basically essentially once and that's why he's Villa Kansas now but regardless when that happens in two thousand seventeen gene penny hardaway is not even a candidate for the Memphis job. Tubby Smith is coaching. Penny Hardaway's coaching high school in Tennessee. The issue I have with the instability doubly ruling. The way it's ruled here is the circumstances that surrounded all of this. I think are unfairly putting James Wise Men's eligibility ability. I don't even know if I WANNA say up for debate Peres because in the eyes of the it's not for debate in fact does give you an idea via of how pissed off. The instable is in the middle of Memphis game on Friday night. And what a crazy night that was parish was in the studio for. CBS Sports Network. It says is. The University of Memphis was notified. The James Wiseman is likely ineligible. The university chose to play him and ultimately is responsible for ensuring its student. Athletes are eligible to play. That's not a common move. By the way in the midst of these cases the organization's general stance is that. It has no statement on ongoing cases. So whomever whomever cleared that is obviously really ticked off that Weisman and his legal representation. Who for my he's Leslie Ball and I know it's Balan F that he's he's Leslie Isley Baldwin and he's incredible and hoping turned around for Wiseman in the right way? I understand the way the rules are written. I have a problem with all of these circumstances affecting Weisman the way they have and I have an issue with penny and what he may or may not have told MEMPHIS MEMPHIS may or may not have known. Because here's the other deal because because this became an issue in the state of Tennessee and I'm kind of speaking back at this with pairs pairs knows all of this. Obviously he's he's talked about it for two years on his radio. Show the details of of this exact thing. We're known to the point where wiseman actually went to the court to get a restraining order to give him eligible in the first place at the high school level. So what I need to know from the standpoint is when when Wiseman was apparently cleared in May of two thousand nineteen when he still had the option to play wherever he wanted most notably Kentucky. If he wasn't gonNA play at Memphis why was he cleared. What are the what he did not know? Because here's my deal if the NC double A.. New All of this if it knew all live this and cleared him and then someone came back in late. October and said oopsy are bad or by the way we might have just missed this dangling thread on no take backs. Wise Men should not suspended over this if all of the details have been provided and I have to. Eileen I lean to believe that they have given that they went through this at the high school level. That Penny Hardaway given who he he is when Memphis brought him in when they knew his connections to all of these different kinds of players. I cannot believe there would be so much unaccountability laziness oversight on this matter. I have to believe all of this stuff was disclosed. If it wasn't to be clear if this was not disclosed Penny Hardaway knew of this and did not tell his employer employer. Then there's a real case against Weisman as much as it sucks but I am. I am opting to believe that all of this stuff was known and provided I to Memphis this and then theoretically cannot be so stupid not to have realized that the number one player in his class did not have this benefit provided to them. That's why I've got the problem if you told them took them. I'm glad you took it there because this is still a point of confusion as it relates to this specific case because if you read the lawsuit that James Wiseman has filed and certainly talk to people who are arguing that side of it. What they they will tell you is that the incidentally cleared and then they just decided to rolling ineligible just you know new information? They just changed their mind and and that may be true. At least I can't tell you it's not true but what I can tell you is it's definitely not the way Memphis. Explain the situation when it released a statement Friday night. I don't know if you saw that. But the statement the university released reads this way after a joint standard eligibility review by the university and the instable As is common for all high profile incoming student athletes James Wiseman Iceland was declared eligible by the instability in May two thousand nine hundred nine however based on information that necessitated a deeper investigation. The university began to work alongside aside the instability in investigating the matter after several months of interviews and after a review of documentation it was determined that in the summer of two thousand seventeen while Wiseman was a a high school student and Prospective Student Athlete Penny Hardaway provided eleven thousand five hundred dollars in moving expenses to assist the wiseman family in the relocation to Memphis unbeknownst to wisemen end of statement so again the lawsuit suggest that the NC Double A. changed its mind but the university statement doesn't suggest that at all what the incident delayed statement said. I mean what what Memphis statement says is listen. We did the initial eligibility review. Everything was cool. He was eligible but then based on information that necessitated a deeper investigation. So after this happened there was information. Asian that necessitated a deeper investigation and we worked on that and then after several months of interviews and after we review of documentation it was is determined that the summer of that in the summer of two thousand Seventeen Penny Hardaway provided eleven thousand.

A New York judge ordered the NYPD to turn over documents revealing whether it spied on the cell phones of people attending black lives matter protests, the New York Civil Liberties Union sued after the department climbed to confirm or deny whether it had records about surveillance of demonstrations. The police have made the claim in the past arguing that certain information could harm counterterrorism or criminal investigations, it's called the global response. But a New York Times reporter Ali Watson says it didn't pass muster this time. Because the judge says there's no criminal activity. Three demonstrators had no nexus counterterrorism had no next to crime. It actually these are three people exercising. Their constitutional rights. The NYPD has thirty days to appeal.
