"Hello Hello and welcome my favorite murder, the many so. Many and cute, it's so pocket-size. You wouldn't believe how transportable it is tiny. Is that a real word transportable is? It transported apple. Okay this is where we we review your stuff. Want go first Karen. Sure this subject line of the for this first one is the cow. We tunnel disaster. Hey, y'all. GonNa go to school in the Great. Smoky Mountains at West Carolina University there, hundreds of ghost stories, due to our rich appalachian history, but the couch tunnel disaster is one of the most notable in our area and a shared often throughout our student body. I was GONNA. Do this one really and yeah, when we were in North Carolina I think this was one of the stories that came up for the area. Yeah, it's breath. In one thousand, nine, hundred, three, a group of prisoners set out on the took a CG river to begin their day's work, which was often in grueling conditions. It's not mentioned here, but just for everyone's information It's nineteen prisoners. All of them were black. It was common in this time to lay miles and miles of railroad track through the treacherous mountains of Western north. Carolina as punishment for their crimes, thirty men stayed chained together day and night, working eating and sleeping with shackles on their ankles on the morning of December. Thirtieth icy slush had accumulated in the bottom of the men's boat that was used to get across the river to the. The site, but the guards force them forward. Anyway. However, everyone onboard quickly began to panic as the slush melted and sloshed around forcing them, and to one side of the boat, only ten feet from the riverbank, the boat capsized, and the first man went overboard, but because they were shackled together, nineteen men were pulled into the water one by one after the man who wet whore him. None stood a chance against the raging icy waters, and nineteen men perished the Great. Smoky Mountain railroad now runs from dill's borough. North Carolina to Bryson city. North Carolina and goes through the couch tunnel. where the men had been laying down track, tourists often take the train as a sightseeing trip when visiting the area when going through the infamous Couch Tunnel The conductors say ladies and gentlemen there nineteen prisoners buried on top of this tunnel and the moisture you see coming down. The walls are the tears of those poor men. SSD! And you bet your ass. That tunnel is haunted as fuck Kendall, so I remember this story, and I just I went and read an article really quick to double. Check from what I remember. and because this detail admit Kendall may not have known this So this is from the smokey mountain news It's an article written by a writer named Garrett Woodward first of all one of those inmates who died one of the nineteen was a fifteen year old boy named Charles Easson who had been sent to jail for? Stealing something very small. He was on a chain gang. She's like with grown men. So this is a portion of that article. From the smokey Mountain News at said in a February nineteen sixty three article by the Asheville Citizen Times well known silver writer John Paris, spoke of the legendary heroics of convict. Andersen Drake who climbed out of the river only to dive back in and Rescue Prison Guard fleet foster. So quote Drake helped foster up. The steep bank, knelt a moment by the gasping guard, and then stood up and turned to look back at the foaming river. There was no sign of the other nineteen convicts. They called drake a hero. They said he would surely go free, but drake didn't go free back in his quarters, following the incident foster found his wallet and Pistol Missing and upon ordering a search of the prison camp, the wallet containing thirty dollars was found in Drake's belongings that night, instead of thanking Drake and giving him a feast, the camp form, and ordered him into the yard, bared his back, and gave a dose of Canada nine tails. A multi tailed whip after the lashings pairs reported, the drake was sentenced to thirty years hard labour and immediately put back to work on the couch tunnel. `Wow! And I questioned the idea that that guy who is drowning in a river, a saved the saved this guard, then robbed him of his wallet and Gotten Right. It makes no sense smile back to the prison and brought back into prison couldn't have spent it right? It's it it's. So basically, it's like he did this thing and everyone thought Oh. Yeah, he'll get freed. He'll be free, and instead he went in for thirty more years. I thought that was an important detail that we should add in. Is that was when I was reading this story for one of the live shows? Yeah, it was awful, Anne, it just, it's just like that, and then it's like, and then it's this haunted tunnel where people here all kinds of horrible sounds in the walls drip with moisture all year long and. All that kind of stuff. Yeah. This one's called. My great grandfather's was stolen from his grave. WHOA. This dear Karen and Georgia I love you guys and your voices have accompanied me through many hours of various boring jobs, many car rides and many late night insomnia struggles. Thanks yeah, thanks for everything you do anyway. Let's jump been in October nineteen eighty-nine. The body of a twenty two year old named Jeffers Kimbrel was found in a field in Columbia. County Florida he was the victim of a stabbing, but here's the problem. This was the second time his body had been found. He had already been buried, and someone had dug him up and left him in a field. Oh my God, then two months later in December, nineteen, eighty, nine, a twenty. Twenty year old named Stephen. Morgan took his own life in the same Florida County. Shortly after he was buried, it was discovered that his body was missing from his grave. Here's where I come in my great grandfather died of a heart attack in November, nineteen, thousand nine, and was buried in neighboring Union county several months later. The ground appear to be caving in around his grave, so county officials obtained an order to exhume his body. You know just make sure everything was cool. It was not cool. They soon discovered that his casket was empty and had been broken into an open in exactly the same way as the to others in Columbia. County had been I found all this out from an article that I found doing some genealogy research. That's second big surprise to. The probably just kind of scrolling one night all by yourself. I wasn't born in I wasn't born until nineteen ninety eight, so I never knew my great grandfather and all my dad's said about it when I asked him is that the body was never recovered, and the whole thing was very upsetting, but here's here's the best part. The article that I read says that five men who were quote attics of the fantasy game. Game Dungeons and dragons had been arrested in nearby Lake City for body, snatching no, as far as I can figure, that's where the trail stops, both in the media, and for my family, but being able to say my great grandfather's body was stolen from his grave in North Florida most likely by some guys playing. D. Makes me really fun to have at parties. Stay, sexy, and find GRANDPA Max Body Ellie what okay..

"Mike Russell and on Instagram at the Gosho with Mike Russell, and our YouTube channel, go outdoors with Mike Russell. Here's the topic. Why do humans? Love certain animals and hate other animals. Yeah. That caught my eye with a quickness. This was a study done by. Let's see here. How her Zog Emerton? Professor don't even know what that means. Just call them a professor pet west Carolina university in their department of psychology. Figured out why or studied why humans like certain animals and don't like certain animals and hate others. The the lead part of the study was going over to Chena where the Chinese giant salamander? It's the largest and fibrin in the world. Is ignored while its neighbor. That Chinese panda is absolutely loved and revered both of them darn near endangered or darn near extinct. They're endangered. Population levels, just in critical levels. Panda's get all the money salamanders get squat pandas get commercials in global campaigns salamanders squat. So why is that that the world wouldn't care if the giant salamander goes extinct, but we would lose our bleeping minds when the last panda assumes room temperature and goes away. Why is that? He said, there are several factors. He said there are a size intelligence behavior. Rarity and how closely an animal resembles the human form they all play into account. I'll go through those again because we're going to get to the number one, ding, ding, ding and just a minute. Size intelligence behavior. Rarity and how closely now will resembles the human form. Panda's got the is the new but nose the mouth and eats with hands sits back and just jumps on some Bambu. Like, we just sit there with a toothpick in her mouth. Right. And the salamander does not breath tile. So how closely resembles the human form? That's what he's talking about size. Pandas are very huge Salman, not so big. Even the giants Hillman. That's a big. But one of the biggest factors. He says is ready. This survey said Bing, Bing, Bing, Bing, Bing, cuteness. That is right. And that is why bring this up right here on the go show when we celebrate all things outdoors is beautiful outdoor playground state that we live in. I have had this argument who over and over and over again since my first deer hunt because it hit me like a ton of bricks on that deer hunt. Why anti hunters three cout like they do and the hypocrisy? Within. I was talking with my sister-in-law who's very pita very animal rights and this was during the hunt. She absolutely lost her mind when I took a deer in. I mean, lost her mind like locked self in the room, screaming crying. We had to have a discussion after that. And I was I welcomed the discussion because it hit me before we had the discussion that months prior. I was out on a tuna boat with her husband, no freaking out. No screaming about us bringing in giant albacore tuna. Nobody shoots you wouldn't upset about that. It all came down to like this study out of Carolina at a west Carolina university is that it boils down to cuteness as the number one trait as whether we as humans. Revere an animal or not. And this is what it breaks down to on our hunting world, we have to have discussions with anti hunters. And I think if we just understand this in lock into this. I think we're okay, a good friend of mine up in flagstaff. I was having a discussion with her about how stupid living in snowy conditions are chosen flagstaff. I was stuck in a snowstorm down in Tucson and just north of Tucson. And I was like how do you do this heading living these conditions? She said, well, how do you hunt? How do you kill an animal, and I said I'm heavily hunting. She goes. Oh, that's okay. So what if I was elk hunting? She goes you shouldn't kill those beautiful. They're cute. And they're just looking you know, the door. I mean, sorry, the the cow Welker so beautiful like, okay. So it comes down to aesthetics. You're not an animal rights person. You're not fighting for all animals are sacred animal shouldn't suffer this that..

"And the other thing your fighting for the cute ones because the thought of acute one dying of acute one bleeding is too much for you to handle the ugly ones. Easy, breezy for you to handle it goes back to my sister-in-law. It was okay to fish flop in suffocate on deck. But that's that's that's okay. But you watch a deer die almost instantly from my rifle round of. That's not okay. So this is where we started discussion. And this is what I'm talking about this on the show. And this is why I was excited wrap up with this. Because it's it's neat that this study is done at west where we at west Carolina university's department of psychology. The study on why humans like certain animals, don't like others number one answers cuteness. There were other traits that we discussed like size intelligence behavior. Rarity how closely an animal resembles human form. But number one time and time again was cuteness essentially did Disney make one of these animals a character in their movies. You think about that? How many times as the deer hunter US? Oh, you go on hunting Bambi say, no, actually, I didn't get a I didn't get a bucket, but I have a DOE tags. And I'm going after bandies mom, not the way the handle it. They used to be the way handled it because I was I was I was ticked off. Militant just militant for hunting is the anti hunters were anti hunters. Right. I was all about firing off on them. If we use the information from this study as our baseline of understanding what you're dealing with when you're talking to an anti hunter. Then I think we can have intelligent calm productive conversations. So understand that the cute is the big part in. If you understand that you can formulate your questions in a in a very polite way and start like this. If you want to have a conversation, we'll hunting understand the hunting is one of my passions. Something's is something that I believe in. I believe I'm an environmentalist. I believe I'm conservations. So if you want to have a conversation with me about being anti-hunting, if we can be intelligent, if we can be let's just say, honest with each other honest with ourselves, then we can have a wonderful conversation. I'll start with this. Do you eat me? If they eat meat say, okay. You understand the meat wasn't animal, and that someone else had to kill an animal process it so you could buy it from the grocery store and serve it. Right. And they will say, yes, if they won't be intellectually honest with themselves. They'll say, yes. And you say, okay. I just do that whole thing myself, you you choose to have someone else. Do it for you. I just used to do it for myself. So we're both kind of in the same game and eight should stop there. But if it doesn't you can continue, and I would follow up just go just cut straight to the chase. Let me ask you this. If you see me hunting a heavily. Or cmih hunting deer which one fires? You up the most? Dear. Are you fired up about the heavily, Anna? No, okay. They're into the conversation. I hope you see where I'm going with this. But if they say, yeah Halloween is too cool. I get that right on how about if I was fishing for tuna. How about if I was fishing for jobs? A really a catfish. Yes. Okay. That bothers you too. Okay. Good. Okay. Now. Now, we're good now. I see that your just as fired up on your side, as I am mind. So now, we're going to have a really fun conversation because we're being intellectually honest with each other. Do you see that?.

"To respond in one hundred twenty days with your contention that you have unlimited time to collect evidence. So this data where we did submit a response. Indeed. I know I've submitted to responses. Right. But the response has to determine if that person is engaged in the activity, not defer to a later point as to make that termination, I think we fully complied with the statutory requirement. And and lastly on the two American citizens that are in custody Salah dare and about air L Abraham these are new disclosures of dual citizens that have been imprisoned. These are journalists intellectuals activists you mentioned that. We can't we have some some response. The response. You mentioned was asking about them with the Saudis at some point when they don't answer our requests for release. Would we expect some more consequential response from the administration they're holding Americans prisoner for their political beliefs and the medical reports out of these prisons suggests that there are some really awful things going on? Deprivation of sleep electrocution, malnourishment of what's the next step here? So happy to talk to you privately about the range of things that are under consideration. We take we take every American citizen whose wrongfully detained as a burden as a duty as something that we know we have the responsibility that weighs on us, and we work to achieve their release. Asking is not the beginning. And end of our policy will lots of tools, lots of different ways to try and get those outcomes. We don't always exceed. Thank you. Mr chairman. Thank you. We're going to get you out here. Right at four thirty so, sir. Van Holland gave you three minutes, and I'll take you. Thank you. Mister mister secretary just lately on the on Saudi Arabia with respect to the transfer of US nuclear technology. Saudi arabia. I gather you signed off on the department of energy decision to provide the park eight ten authorizations. Is that right? I didn't. We were. We were part of that conversation. You tell us. When that was. I'll get you the answer. As you know, Saudi Arabia has talked openly about acquiring a nuclear weapon. In addition to many of the transgressions we've discussed today, as you know, the UA adopted the gold standard, sh you agree, that it should be our position that before we move forward with any kind of nuclear deal with Saudi Arabia, even if we made the decision that was a wise move that at the very least they should have the gold standard. It's certainly been what we've been pursuing right? But the administration's been trying to get. That's our goal. I understand the secretary of you. Of course, we'll be able to make the decision about whether that's an absolute condition or not assuming people move forward on the merits. And I would hope it would be American policy. Require that is a condition if the decisions made to move forward. Let me briefly just mentioned to bipartisan bills have introduced and ask. If you take a look at them and get back to us third one is on it's called the Greek actor Senator Toomey, and I introduced it is your position administration's position that as we continue to go North Korea. We should maintain maximum economic pressure. Yes. Because there was some confusion, as you know, recently because the president made a comment maybe watch it back, but I'm glad to hear that answer. Because that's exactly what the brink act would do. It would apply the same sanctions regime with respect to North Korea that we did with Iran that helped bring your onto the negotiating table applying secondary sanctions there was a report today about how China had opened another crossing on the Yellow River with respect to trade which obviously undermines the economic pressure. So I hope that you will join with us in that effort. The other measure is the detracted introduce that with Senator Rubio. It's designed to make sure that we deter future Russian interference in our elections and unlike other measures here, which are just adding new sanctions. And now, it's a perspective sanction. I think sanctions should be designed to try to influence behavior. And the idea is pretty simple if we catch the Russians again interfering our elections, they will face swift and severe sanctions. So if you're Putin trying to make that calculation going forward, you'll know you have a very heavy price to pay. We are just last year. But we're going to be reintroduced it, if you were very supportive of the concept in would you support going forward, but something like that would I know the outlines of the detract and conceptually make make sense. Thank you. I appreciate that thanking got like thirty seconds. Someone you've been great, by the way, Turkey important ally. A lot of problems these sort increased economic integration between the American economy and Turkey do when it comes to Afghantistan. Can you assure this committee in the world that they have gang? Government will be a meaningful participant in any peace deal more than that. They will they will be at the centre again lead going to Italy and Tunisia next week. Which should the message be about Libya? So we've made clear our expectation that the process the political process there will be allowed to come to its fruition. And that there shouldn't be bloodshed and violence to resolve this that there should be a political resolution there in Libya. Well, thank you. You've done an excellent job as secretary of state. I personally appreciate all the effort. You put into your job the council, given the president and appearing before the committee day. We will we have a statement from the department of state's allied g will introduce into the record special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction will be made part of the record any questions the subcommittee would like to submit no later than Friday April twelfth our next hearing will be on April thirtieth UCI administrator, Mark green subcommittee extensive German center.
