I've really seen it. Take off. When i first got to congress. I could see this nationalist sort of starting to swell and by about two thousand fifteen. It took hold of the republican party in in a pretty big way at first members of congress when donald trump took office were doubtful about him. They would make fun of them in private. They'd criticize him They'd insult him. Even i thought they going too far and i was a big critic of donald trump and i couldn't believe some of the things that were said about him and then around two or three years ago around the beginning of twenty nine or so. I saw people really start to shift and the party really became donald trump's party completely and that's going to be the way it is over the next few years. I don't think.

There's a lotta real advice in there. Which i like us the advice that you give you. Don't find that in books by celebrities ever usually the bios like i knew that by working hard and keeping my head down i would eventually win. It's never really accurate so props to you for writing.

That's what my mom always. Tell me my mom that me right.

Prosecutor in Trump Criminal Probe Convenes Grand Jury to Hear Evidence, Weigh Potential Charges
"And I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning, Manhattan's district attorney has convened a grand jury to consider evidence in a criminal investigation. I could indict former President Donald Trump or other members of the Trump Organization. The grand jury will sit for six months, three days a week, looking into whether Trump lied about assets to defraud insurance companies and banks. News was first reported by The Washington Post and has not yet been confirmed by the prosecutor's office. William Merritt from member station W. And my see in New York is here to talk about it with us, Hialeah. Good morning. What does convening a grand jury tell us about where the D A. Cyrus Vance is with this case. Well, let's just say it is such an extraordinary situation. Usually the grand jury process plays out completely in secret. You never know what's happening. But as we have seen, nothing ever unfolds in the expected way, when it comes to Donald Trump and the courts, so this entire probe is played out. In partial public view, and that's in large part because Donald Trump tried to block it every step of the way, forcing prosecutors to go to court to get the records they were seeking. This probe went to the Supreme Court twice and prevailed both times. And along the way, there have been leaks and just very intense media coverage. So this special grand jury will be a panel of men and women, ordinary citizens being presented with evidence of potential wrongdoing at the Trump Organization and potentially related to Donald Trump. Cording to the Washington Post is you say the grand jury will be impaneled for six months, meaning three days a week. Now it's district Attorney Cy Vance may ask the special grand jury for an indictment. Or he may just use it to gather evidence and corral witnesses. But either way, it's a very meaningful step forward for that investigation. We know that advances office one access to former President Trump's tax records. Based on that. What? What do we know about the possible crimes that looking at here? The ones that he has named in his court filings are scheme to defraud falsification of business records, insurance fraud and criminal tax fraud on he said that it could go further than that what we know about the business practices. Underlying those possible crimes really begins with the hush money scheme to silence to women who claimed they had affairs with Trump around the 2016 campaign. You'll recall that former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen went to jail for his role in that scheme, but no one else was ever charged. From there. Vance reached further back in Trump business history following a pattern described by Michael Cohen of either understating or overstating either the value or revenues of the trump business to get bigger loans if he was talking to banks. Or small tax bills If he was talking to the government now, to be clear, both Trump the man and Trump the business are investing under investigation. This probe could result in charges against Trump or people close to him or the business

Glenn Kirschner's Top Line Thoughts on the Criminal Probe of Trump Organization
"To be joined today by my friend. Former federal prosecutor for many decades but not five decades like andrew.

Glenn welcome are you doing. I'm doing well thank you. It's been an interesting day so far in the news. I know biden just signed the anti asian hate act and hate crimes act and i think that that's a great speech that you made and we've got a lot going on and boy the investigative pressure. The legal troubles are mounting for the former guy as we learned just last night that not only is the new york attorney general tips james teaming up with Vance on the trump organization investigation making her civil suit also criminal investigation but that she has had a criminal investigation open against weisselberg. Cfo the trump organization and sent a letter letting them all know back in january. She's been doing this for months now. And i find that fascinating. And i was hoping to get your top line thoughts so top line thoughts are okay. What do we know based on this announcement by attorney general james and what can we reasonably infer. Well what we know. Is that if you're the target of an investigation and it goes from being a civil investigation to being a criminal investigation. We know that's bad for you. That's bad for donald trump. that's bad for the trump organization because civil investigations are all about money. All somebody can do to the target of a civil investigation is you know levy fines and penalties and make them pay restitution and then maybe at the most extreme they can prohibit you from running a business in the future kind of like when james shut down the trump charity and when she went after and is still going after the nra. But you know what civil doesn't land anybody in prison. Criminal can land people imprisoned. So we know that's bad for donald trump. We also know that too. Prosecutorial heads are better than one right. So tisch james has a full staff of lawyers with experience and expertise in certain areas and advance. The district attorney for manhattan has a whole battalion of lawyers with experience and expertise in certain areas. The fact that these two offices are jordan joining forces. I think spells real trouble for trump and

"This season. We've been unpacking the longest year in tech history. Nineteen ninety five. The year our future began so much started in that time but few changes were more consequential than the advent of online shopping. In just a couple of decades it's grown from a handful of startups to a team of goliaths and we couldn't live without them. But as we'll see the dominance of certain online shops is only partly due to brilliant business maneuvers.

Do you think it's something that could realistically happen? Well Kevin I don't know if you saw it, but today. Bloomberg released an article about A. Government led project called Operation Warp speed. That is apparently aiming to cut. That's twelve to eighteen months timelines significantly. Now any details of the plan have not yet been disclosed or how it's going to be structured, but. There does seem to be will to. Rewrite the rulebook and try try something really new so so I think it will be very realistic. That's great news because it's the old thinking that gets us into the problem and the old solutions that you know when you look at the political solutions that have gone on and the economic policies that have gone on. You know we can talk about that all day. I think that we need to revise our thinking. And I love that about your article.

"FDIC when the map of New York was released in eighteen. Eleven it was. Kind of a shocker. Yeah in Fowler. Says people kind of freaked out the big world capitals at the time with these organic sprawling cities like Rome Paris London meandering streets Thames Moammar tra- seven hills of Rome. Tom I mean that's the city. Was Real disagreements about it. Clearly they lost so why not let the hills be hills and the city be more organic. Why the grid the four main reasons for the grid. The I was health. Yeah there had been these terrible epidemics of yellow fever and other diseases diseases that had swept through the city and there was this theory at the time that the diseases were spread in stagnant air. So a grid would keep the air circulating kind of flowing so good for public. Health and New York was growing very fast. It was already shaping up to be one of the most important cities in the United States. Really the economic engine of this new country which brings brings us to the second reason. The commissioners chose the grid. Housing Commission is set as much in a statement. They released along with the map saying quote. A city is to be composed principally support for habitations of men and that straight sided and right angled houses of the most cheap to build and the most convenient to live in. Is that your circa eighteen. Hundreds voice I think that's how they were very tense. A lot of the time because of the non circulating air it's constricted the throat throat muscles. It's true I mean everything about this. Map was very precise. The avenues repairing draw night to be exactly one hundred feet wide and the streets were all sixty feet wide. The grid ran all the way up the island that was good for Housing and boon. For New York's putting real estate business. In general in says these little chunks. These little city blocks talks were pretty uniform in size. And that meant the land could be easily priced so these blocks we have. There's the slightly varying in size but I understand and this is. The larger ones. were an acre in size yup and in eighteen hundred. There's a record of a farmer buying. I think fifty of these blocks and four hundred dollars each so four hundred dollars for a block of Manhattan Richard. That'd be now I don't know four hundred dollars pay for the parking for you to look at the block. It's probably true four hundred dollars. It sounds like a good indicator that's indicator. Yes so bad. He let's make that are indicator four hundred dollars the price of a city block in Manhattan back in eighteen eleven. Even if we just let today's dollars about eight thousand bucks so part of the grid logic had to do with our circulation part of it was real estate but IAN says there was a larger economic vision Asian at play reason number three for the grid. It made it easier to move goods around from the buzzing ports at the south of the island to the busy roads to the canals that were being built to move goods across state lines. Info says the eighteen eleven grid brand New York City built for business. This was going to be a city that was built for commerce. This was going to be a city. That functioned exclusively for industry and for making New York the economic capital of the United States. And so what you want is easy transport of goods and people from the north to the southern tip from the southern tip to the north and then across the island. So it's really making it so that there's no roundabouts. There's no weird Boston streets. None of this European Frou frou kind of organic or beautifully beautifully planned circles and roundabouts and Rococo. Whatever it's tough industrial grid straight lines efficiency efficiency lots of efficiency. There wasn't even a park on the map. There was only one lizzy greenspace and it was set. Aside for military drills. Was the parade right around where Madison Square Garden is today today. But the grid was also rational and predictable kind of gala. -Tarian Phillip Lopate in SAS at. The Time said the grid was quote impossible to over over praise. Yeah but in fairness Philip was kind of an Iot liar. Popular sentiment was not team grid. There are a lot of critics. An alert a real harm done to New Yorkers a lot of tenant farmers were displaced by the grid they lost their jobs and their homes whole communities were just pushed out. Landowners were basically forced to sell their land to the city because some avenue was set to run straight through their kitchen yet. Emphasis on the word straight. That was kind of the elephant in the room with this map. The straight avenues and streets seemed to ignore the the fact that Manhattan was not a pancake. Not at all the word Manhattan comes from a native word meaning island of many hills and Ian points that you can seal the hills the topography markings on the eighteen eleven map. What is interesting about the map as it does. Reflect the topography of the time periods. So it's obviously pre grid pre flattening tightening of Manhattan flattened it. Oh yes and then so they. They flattened the entire island. They gritted it out. This is an enormous undertaking taking the Renault backhoes. Back then or steam rollers. You can see drawings and paintings of how they made this moving of the Earth happen there. These huge teams of men standing shoulder to shoulder older with pickaxes and shovels and horses pulling carts full of soil and rock moving up the island as a unit flattening everything out for one city block. The survey reported they moved nearly eight billion gallons of dirt just to get a flat surface for one block. This was totally horrifying too. Many People New Yorker and writer Clement Clarke Moore said quote. Nothing is to be left unmolested. These are men who would have cut down the seven hills of Rome by the way clement was a landowner and he made a small fortune selling his land to the city to be planned. Well you know if you can't beat a make a tidy profit did mean a lot of jobs for people low in the city at the time. Yes absolutely and they worked quickly. I mean just sixty years later. Most of the eighteen eleven map had been realized all the way up up to one hundred and fifty fifth street hills had been raised farms had been paved over and by then central park had been added to bring you know a little bit of nature. Back to the grid contained nature and the map worked. They built the city and it came more than two hundred years later. New York is a flat. Paved Grid Tailor made for efficiency and commerce and one of the wealthiest cities in the world. The architect Ram cool has pronounce this map. The most courageous act of prediction in Western civilization. A special things to the New York Public Library and New Orleans for letting US see the map.

"The Dutch policy of tolerance which was enshrined in their de facto constitution in fifteen seventy any nine became the backdrop against which the little country rose to dominance in Europe it helped bring about the Dutch Golden Age during which the company became the center of Revolution Russians in Art Science and commerce and it formed the fabric of the colony of new Netherland at home in the Dutch republic. The population contained a mix of different nationalities. The nations turned that diversity to an advantage traveling the world has shippers and making money one byproduct of Dutch diversity was an increasingly mixed population on Manhattan Aten and the other Dutch innovation of the era a new way of doing business was also in the DNA of North American colony. This trait went back to the very beginnings of the Dutch people thanks to US geography. Their corner of Europe was one of the last to be settled. It was flat largely below sea level and essentially one vast river delta where three the of Europe's great rivers drained into the sea thus the settlers who migrated there in the Middle Ages found that each spring their crops were underwater as a rivers changed course this or that the houses they had built on previously dry land were now flooded but rather than move they took remarkable step of banding together as communities and Building building dams and dikes to control the water. The backbreaking work had to be done by hand and it required everyone's participation. Nobody could sit out. This in turn spawned a culture of collectivism. They called it. The polder model a way of building consensus named after upholder land reclaimed from the Z. Everyone in a given town came to meetings of the waterboard. Everyone decided on staff that had to be made when to rebuild a damn how to protect the town and everyone everyone took part for otherwise they would all be under water and in this way the Dutch reclaimed enormous amounts of land from see. This new land wasn't previously easily owned by anyone of course so they divided up among the people in each town. Everyone got a plot and this set up a contrast with the rest of Europe elsewhere. It was at the age of Knights and castles the feudal system which was based on the ownership of large amounts of land by the nobility and the feudal system was fixed. Everyone had their place and rarely moved out of it. A nobleman who owned great tracts of land would give birth to children and only they would inherent that land a peasant gave birth to the only more peasants the system didn't encourage people to search for opportunities to better themselves but when the Dutch created new land and divided it up they discovered that with land ownership came possibility people began making their own money off their own plots throwing flowers or raising cows making cheese building houses his and selling them they became innovators looking for new ways to profit one innovation spawned another and in the fourteen hundreds they cornered the market on the haring industry until that moment all the nations of northern Europe had fished the North Sea for herring but the Dutch began experimenting with a new type of ship a herring buss which was kind of a floating factory where teams of men working assembly line fishing processing and packing the fish they discovered his technique for preserving the fish which which meant they could travel further from shore and have bigger halls. They even created modern means of marketing. They stamped their kegs Holland herring as a way to advertise that there's was the best so that customers would seek it out again. Dominance of the herring trade became the basis for going even further afield in search of profits so win time was born the world's first modern corporation the Dutch east India Company which in sixteen o two became the vehicle for the invention of many of the defining concepts types of capitalism including shares of stock and shareholders the east India company built up massive profits by trading Asia and that rush of wealth was fueling doing the golden age but this new approach to doing business. This entrepreneurialism wasn't initially part of things Manhattan after the stunning success the east India Media Company had trading in Asia another group of investors had created the Dutch west India company. It's territory the West indies encompassed everything from the west coast of Africa to to the East Coast of North America the Caribbean and South America it would not only look for money making opportunities in this vast fear but also for ways to harm the Spanish and sixteen twenty eight the company had great success on both fronts one of its naval captains. Peter Hain managed to capture a sixteen ship flotilla off off the coast of Cuba that was loaded with Spanish silver and gold the bounty worth twelve million Dutch guilders or one billion in today's dollars flooded the country three with wealth and raise the possibility of the west India company matching the success achieved in Asia but it didn't happen. Peete Hain success was never repeated the west India company founded new Netherland in order to do the same thing in the Americas that its sister company was doing in Asia to make staggering amounts of money out of local products but it just wasn't working one reason was the west India company's monopoly. Nobody else could ship firs or tobacco out of Manhattan and with the company rulers in Europe their decrees about how to run the place two months to get to the island and nobody on the ground was empowered to change bad policy as a result piracy started to become a way of life one of new Amsterdam's prominent inhabitants Willem Blau out was a pirate who worked the waters off South America rather than imprison him as an outlaw though the towns leaders chipped in to back his voyages and divided the spoils meanwhile as the company failed to make a profit off it from beaver pelts in tobacco it turned to another commodity when company warships captured Spanish ships in the Caribbean and haul them to Manhattan for processing the Africans Africans who were prisoners on the Spanish ships ended up in new Amsterdam the west India company officials who were frustrated and other lines of commerce shifted their attention to slavery in time the west India company would become one of the dominant players in the slave trade with outposts all along the West African coast at this stage. The first slaves arrived as captured cargo from Spanish ships west India Company privateers or pirates for higher roam the Caribbean in search of prey when they captured Gordon enemy ship they brought it into port new Amsterdam and some of those vessels had imprisoned Africans aboard the company decided to claim them as property and they were put into service on Manhattan slowly slavery evolved in the sixteen thirty s and throughout the lifetime of the Dutch colony. The concept was fluid some white settlers own slaves some considered that the relationship was like indentured servitude back in Europe after a certain period of years the enslaved African was freed. There was also a policy called old half slavery in which the enslave person was allowed an amount of freedom but was still obligated to work for the owner when called upon there were also free Africans living in Manhattan atten who owned property and farmed but no matter what their status most Europeans viewed Africans as fundamentally inferior and treated them such imagine it's January sixteen forty one urine enslaved African from Angola.

The wounds were mere farmers many of whom had never even seen the ocean before fortunately fortunately the wind was with them which made it a relatively short passage only two months in total in early. May steered into the Great Harbor that formed the heart of the Dutch colony the same Harvard that had first drawn the attention of Henry Hudson years earlier but no sooner had they done so then they spotted a ship flying the French colors captain may announced to his passengers that there would be a delay possibly violent one. He was under orders from the states general the Dutch governing body to defend the Dutch claim to the territory captain may communicate his orders to the French ship which replied that it was here to claim the territory for France Catalina must have had a few hours of mounting society as the messages went back and forth she couldn't have helped but consider the possibility that her dream of a new life in America would end before she even set foot on the continent after a while and once captain may showed he was prepared to use his cannons. The French ship backed down as the Dutch escorted the French vessel out of the Harbor off Catalina your saw firsthand the uncertainty of new world politics this might look like a wilderness but European powers were already thinking ahead the new ring to control pieces of it the Dutch ship continued its voyage and sailed past the thickly wooded island island of Manhattan and continued one hundred fifty miles up the Hudson River to a spot near the CO host falls there they disembarked and rejoiced at the feel of firm Earth beneath with their feet and then they got to work on their first two tasks building a fort and getting crop in the ground after the fourth four bastions were up they busy themselves with constructing individual houses and by mid summer the settlers had simple but serviceable homes and the grain they had planted was rising high from the fields the the first year or so the settlement was peaceful serene. Even there was the richness of the land to marvel at and the wide muscular rises of the mountains their reason for being in this location was trade the Hudson River which ran north south intersected with Mohawk river which went East West the west India Company had founded the colony of new Netherland excellent as a for profit enterprise and its directors placed their hopes on the for trade yours and Catalina helped establish that trade with native Americans who trapped beavers in other animals along the Mohawk river the unions brought their pelts downriver to the Ford the settlers traded for them pack them onto ships and then sent them down to the southern reaches of the Hudson River then their fellow colonists transferred them to larger vessels to make the transatlantic voyage back home in Amsterdam. The beaver pelts were processed into felt which which was highly prized in Europe because it was both lightweight and warm the Dutch trading expedition got off to an excellent start in their first full year yours and Catalina Selena and the other Fort Orange settlers obtain close to five hundred otter pelts and more than five thousand beavers from the natives for which they traded guns pots knives chiefs and other items of value to the local people at the same time.

We already mentioned him earlier this episode Lawrence wrote about the discovery of you to thirty five and eventually the report on the bombing of Nagasaki Lawrence was the science reporter for the New York Times and in his pursuit of breaking scientific news. He frequently reported on early developments in nuclear research before the government began classifying atomic studies on January thirty first nineteen thirty nine Lawrence. Ran an article titled vast energy freed by uranium atom reporting on the immense energy released when scientists split a uranium atom the next year Lawrence reported on the discovery of you to thirty five as disgust. Earlier this episode then in September nineteen forty his article the atom gives up featured information, so sensitive the director of the Manhattan project general grows began tracking library access in order to identify and track Americans who had an unusual interest in atomic energy in nineteen Forty-five groves recruited Lawrence to serve as a reporter on the Manhattan project counter intuitive. As it sounds groves wanted a reporter on site for his top secret classified military operation. So that key breakthroughs could be documented and released to the public after the project was declassified Lawrence had shown an unusual knack for finding in reporting on nuclear breakthroughs, and he may have been recruited to the Manhattan project. So that grows could control. What information Lawrence published and win throughout Lawrence's service in the Manhattan project? None of. Reports were published and from the perspective of the public. He simply stopped reporting without explanation is final New York Times article ran on March tenth nineteen Forty-five and he joined the Manhattan project in April of the same year. But during his long public silence, he witnessed several key moments in atomic research, including the world's first ever, atomic bomb test the Manhattan project in spite of its name was a nationwide effort it incorporated locations throughout the United States, including Los Alamos, New Mexico. Oak Ridge, Tennessee and Dayton, Ohio where Monsanto developed a necessary radioactive element called polonium to ten. That's the same on Santo. That is well known today as an agricultural company that develops genetically engineered crops, but in the middle of the twentieth century Monsanto was primarily a chemical. Company the head of Monsanto central research department. Dr Charles Allen Thomas joined the Manhattan project in nineteen forty three to assist in research at Los Alamos by summer of that same year Manhattan project engineers knew they would need to generate more polonium to continue their efforts Thomas assumed that responsibility using the Ohio Monsanto facilities to develop the polonium. Soon. Thomas realized Monsanto needed to expand to meet the military's needs in Dayton, Ohio. They re purposed a warehouse a school and a sports complex into administrative offices laboratories and a polonium production plant that very same polonium.

It was an exciting prospect for a passionate physicist of any political persuasion in nineteen forty two shortly after the United States officially entered World War Two j Robert Oppenheimer joined the Manhattan project to help develop the atomic bomb he oversaw operations in Los Alamos, New Mexico. A location known as site y due to Oppenheimer's ties to the. Communist party, he almost failed his security clearance check, but given his brilliance and his passion for physics, the head of the Manhattan project general groves convinced his project security officer to make an exception the race to develop the first atomic bomb. Inspired some risky decision making on the part of the Manhattan. Project's leaders as for Auburn Heimer from the beginning he had mixed feelings about his work on the project on the one hand he was violating his ethical beliefs by building a bomb potentially the most deadly bomb in the history of mankind on the other hand Oppenheimer believe that a single bomb might end the war immediately saving uncountable lives of soldiers in the long term. Ultimately, the atomic bomb. Could even be a tool for peace. Perhaps he reasoned after World War Two the threat of nuclear weapons would even be strong enough to. Terrent and war for all time looking back. It's clear that he was incorrect. Oppenheimer may not have been fully convinced either.
