"I'm David Remnick. I'm sitting here sort of virtually with my colleague Evan Osnos, who's been covering politics for us since 2008 hard to believe. Evan, You've been working on a profile of Joe Biden for quite some time. And at the end of July, you went to meet him at his home in Delaware. What was what were the circumstances? What was it like to talk to him in person at that moment? Well, a Sze Yu can imagine. Frankly, he was sort of glad to see another human being because they have him under very tight restrictions. There's basically two aides that go in and out of the house, one of his assistants in one of Jill Biden's assistance. And then there's the Secret Service detail, But other than that, they really don't have a lot of people coming in and out. And so, they said, First of all, you gotta wear a mask. And they said, We're not going to be in the main house because we don't want you potentially contaminating where he lives. So they put us in a carriage house at the foot of the property, and we sat across from each other in a room. It was too hot to sit outside. It was somewhere in the mid nineties. And they said, so we're going to sit across from each other on DH don't touch. So how did you handle the social distance and give me the you know the scene where you're sitting? How far apart Could you hear him? So I was sitting in a chair waiting for him to arrive. And first thing I hear is his voice actually, before I saw him, he said, Welcome to my mom's house. And that's because the little House that we were in had had been built for his mom shortly after his dad died. I walked in. They should be in that chair downstairs, Face the fireplace watching television. She had a Hassidic there. And he then without me asking a question. This was kind of you know the Biden At his most Biden, like where he just launched into a story. It used to be a little tiny barn telling me about the history of the house and why he built it and what it meant to him and his parents and so on, she said. Joey If you build me a house, I'll move in here. I should, honey. And in some ways, you know, I was struck by the fact David that we've all been listening in one form or another. Did Joe Biden since the Nixon administration. I mean, this has been a feature of public life for so long. And there is a very recognisable Joe Biden way of thinking out loud where he kind of wanders around occasionally and then right at the moment where you think we have really lost our way. He lands on something and he lands on something meaningful. And there was an example of that. That really struck me. What was that? I asked him. Ah, What did you learn from the protests after the killing of George Floyd, What did you learn, actually, and he said At first he started talking about his his history of sort of thinking about civil rights and the black freedom struggle, and I and we were veering off into history for a moment And then he said, You know, I gotta be honest. I was embarrassed to discover that one of the myths that I have believed in for a long time was not true. And that myth was that we were marching forward slowly but inexorably in the direction of greater recognition of The existence of discrimination and systemic racism in our side, But we were moving in in the right direction. And he said What I What I was wrong about was that I thought we could actually eliminate hate. What? I didn't realize that this is embarrassed to say. I thought you could defeat hit. You can't only hides. It crawls under the rocks. And when given oxygen. Any person in authority. Comes roaring back out. And what I realized is the words of the president, even a lousy president matter. They could take you to war. They bring peace they could market rise for but they can also give hate oxygen. Where Trump not running, I probably wouldn't be running. But it was she's so Contrary to everything But I believe about government. And I was sort of the antithesis where I think we should be doing. We have always talked about We've thought about it. We never lived up to We? The people hold these truths to be self evident. Every kid learns. I think most of us thought even those with a lot of experience thought that that it's always gonna be that way. We were never. We've never met, but we constantly moved closer and closer and closer to more inclusion. And all of a sudden you're thinking yourself. Holy God! Look at these guys. Look what's happened. Lucas. What was being done? Lucas being said not just by him. By his followers and some of his some of his elected college. Evan. We saw very clearly at the Democratic convention that Biden is running on the idea that his presidency would be a kind of restoration that it would restore the country. To an extent spiritually as well as politically that he'd bring a sense of non emergency back to American public life. What are the risks of running such a campaign? That can sound at times like something really unappealing, which is a return to status quo Ante, which was all of the conditions that led to Donald Trump like Radical inequality completely untended issues around race around the basic structure of American capitalism. And that's what worries people is. They say that in his zeal to say, well, I'm going to bring us back to normalcy that that becomes actually an excuse for Not taking on the hard problems well, return to normalcy would include a and, and it already includes environmental disasters that make this pandemic look Look like Wiffle ball. And that's actually an issue that he is showing himself to be more movable on. I mean, one of the things if you look at what's happened, T Joe Biden over the course of the last A few months since he secured the nomination is that he has done the opposite thing that usually Democratic candidates to usually they get to the general election, and.
Noose found in Bubba Wallace's garage stall, NASCAR says
"Now? Mike Greenberg Bristol with you this morning. And as I said right off the top of the show, I would have loved to have started with any of those today, and we certainly will get to the mall, but we begin with an absolutely despicable story coming from the world of NASCAR. In this developing story, a noose was found in bubba Wallace's. Stall at the NASCAR race in Talladega Alabama yesterday less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR to ban the confederate flag NASCAR announced the news last night well after the race had been postponed due to inclement weather, and said it was launching an immediate investigation here. was there statement late this afternoon? Nascar was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the forty three eighteen. We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough. How seriously we take this heinous act! We have launched an immediate investigation and we'll do everything we can to identify the persons responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism and NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all while himself tweeted a statement last night, which read in. In part today's despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened, and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism. As my mother told me today, they are just trying to scare you. This will not break me. I will not give enor- rely back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe. In Allah Marty Smith is covering this for us in the scene in Talladega. He joined us an hour ago. The News in Bubbas garage stall was actually seen by a member of his team. Darrell Bubba never saw it. He never saw it personally and win. That team members saw it. He alerted NASCAR. And Nascar immediately had a meeting of its senior executive staff, and they made the decision that they were going to remove this person from the sport as quickly and rapidly as possible. This was not a situation where a fan might have meandered in on this because there were no fans in the garage. So what you're looking at is you're looking at team members. You're looking at officials. You're looking at potential security. You're looking at maybe cleaning personnel that have access to these garage areas. Again! That was Marty Smith with US earlier. Lebron James among many who posted messages about this. He tweeted sickening Wallace, my brother! No, you don't stand alone I'm right here with you as well as every other athlete, I just want to continue to say how proud I am of you for continuing to take a stand for change here in America and sports at Nascar. I salute you as well. Well Sprint Cup driver Michael McDowell added. God help us the level of evil. It takes to do something like this is disgusting. This is enraging and heartbreaking all at the same time Dale. EARNHARDT Jr. tweeted simply a hope of a wins it tomorrow again. The race will be run today. It was delayed by weather yesterday, and as I bring Steven A. and Marcus into the conversation here I'll. Repeat that the area in which this was discovered, there were cameras all over it should be. Relatively easy investigation for the NASCAR officials to conduct, and we are standing by for any information live from Talladega Marty Smith will bring us anything as soon as there is any further news with that thought in mind, Stephen. We've not yet had a chance to say good morning to you I. I just want to give you the floor here. What are your feelings and thoughts as we see this story developed from last night? Well I. Mean I think that for me? Personally I'm a little bit different than the kind of sentiments that have been expressed by a lot of people, because obviously you find this reprehensible and disgusting, and it's incredibly sad, and we get all of that but there's a forgive the the figurative smirk that might end up covering my face or draping my face because to me. Me It's just folks displaying the ignorance, and the more they put it on display, the more it enlightens a lot of people in White. America about what Black America has been telling them about for so many years decades spanning centuries for crying out loud. This is not new. This is something that we've known existed for all time. This is something we know we'll continue to exist. And there is no way around it and so this there comes a point in time where you have to accept that reality one of the things that I would encourage everybody to go watch. If you get an opportunity, you can go on Netflix. You can watch that documentary thirteen by EVA do vernay along with others, sensational job of address mass incarceration in the United States, of America one of the things they highlighted. Is that under the Nixon? Administration where you're literally talking about you know White folks that are hippies and you associate them with marijuana and you associate black. Black folks with crack cocaine, and as a result of that will ultimately galvanize folks in your favor, because they'd be scared to death, and you'd be hearing words like law and order ad, nauseam that was in the sixties for crying out loud in two thousand and twenty, and we're hearing the same thing now. You just have to open your eyes. You have to pay attention to the parallels you have to. You have to pay attention to the correspondence. That's taking place right before your very eyes throughout history, we have had people that have been adroit at light laying low. Controlling the narrative, manipulating the narrative switching things to their favor, all in an effort to maintain or to retain power. It's something to kind of thing that has been taking place in. Usually they've been incredibly skilled at remaining in the dark and saying it's then it's not us, it's them. It's not us well guess what are coming to light more and more in this day and age I find that a cause for celebration, not a 'cause. You know to be saddened by anything. The I find these to be. Beautiful tops as difficult as it may be the fact that I nation appears to be becoming more enlightened than ever before and ultimately as a result. We're coming together. I find that to be a huge plus not a minus. If the ignorance has to show itself, and if the ignore, it has to showcase themselves in order for this to happen coming out of the dock to me. That's of course was celebration Marcus. Stephen. That's what I alluded to earlier man just come on out. Show us who you are, so we know how to deal with you and everybody. That's four. Right knows how to deal with you. Look listen, this is. There has been. We've been having this conversation for a long time. I mean we had this conversation we had. This conversation went capped kneeled about police brutality. We talked about racing all of them and man you. You look if you look around and social. There were people literally Oh twitter last night. Say A BUBBLE! Did this for attention? What what are you talking about like? It's not. It's not unfathomable that someone could do that. We sold Jesse's me. Make reference to that because people can conjure up things to create narratives to make people overreact. That's why saying earlier. Estimate I'm not doing this emotional. Rollercoaster I'm getting off of it right like I'm nuts and bolts to was going on. There is progress that needs to be made in this country I'm focusing on that progress that needs to be made. That's what bubble wireless is focused in on a by making his statements in Nascar. That's a lot of athletes are focused on a lot of people in society in general of focused on making sure that we draw a line between racist people and people that one good for everybody. That's the bottom line. Look for as much as this is egregious and the things that have transpired for low type. I grew up in the south light. It's not. An uncommon for me to see racist people are know what it looks like or even even be surprised or shocked about certain things that tend to happen. The bottom line is this. I'm often emotional roller coaster like if you racist just be that come out publicly and be that enlist separate that and you be a part of the minority port society that we want to get to, and we think we already are at so all of that being said I'm with Steve Day like in this bringing a lot of people to the light, and the hateful ones are fighting their battle because they see slipping away. Score you're not GonNa hear me say this very very often, but I wanNA give major major kudos to a Lotta. White folks out there in America because if it wasn't for them, protesting and marching with black individuals if it wasn't for them, you know engaging in the kind of of of you know resistance to whatever level of oppression we as black people have been feeling this nation I. Don't think some of these folks will. will be coming out I. mean listen the back. In the day. They used to wear the sheets and used to cover the identity and their faces that we didn't know who the hell they were by virtue of that now. Some black people, a lot of black people will tell you they exist in corporate America. They could be the very people that you're working for the very people that you're talking to I happen to be. Be Blessed we happen to be blessed to not certainly not have that at this company is because we've seen the actions on the part of our executives. And what have you over continuous basis? Elevated level of sensitivity that this place has shown throughout the years deserves to be commended. There's always work to do. There is no perfect place. Make no about it, but I'm incredibly proud to be a part of the Walt Disney and And specifically the ESPN family in that regard having set all of that I'm in the minority, because the reality is vast people, there's a vast number of people of African. American descent in the United States of America that feel subjugated I wouldn't go so far as to say enslaved, but feel subjugated by bosses in corporate America people that say all the right things when the cameras are rolling, but behind the scenes they engage. Eight your and the conduct. Subjugation that they devote their voiceless. They don't have a voice in that regard, green. Marcus knows exactly what I'm talking about. And so because of that because of these times that we're living, what we're seeing is a populous within the United States of America that sees the dramatic shift, and there's so appalled, and and put and taken aback by what they see transpiring that they can't hide their vitriol. They're coming out of the dock because they're being forced out of the dog. We as black people. People have to appreciate the fact that couldn't happen without a vast number of white individuals in our society standing with us and saying you know what we see where the hell you coming from. If we didn't see it before we see it now, and we're with you, so you have that other segment of the population saying wait a minute we lose some of our own here. Some of our own alternative guests and the poor in this noxious. We gotTA speak up and as a result. Of the dock again I find that a cause for celebration doesn't bother me at all. If we wore, we wore. Let's get it on. I liked that. I want to leave it there for the moment again. Marty Smith is standing by Talladega. If there is any further information on the investigation, we will have it for you immediately, meanwhile, Steven as going to stay with us here for a few more minutes, and we'll get some football conversation as we go his feelings about the Dallas, cowboys have been well documented. This should be a very big day in Dallas. We will talk about it and why and then Lebron and other NBA players have until Wednesday to decide whether or not they're going to play. What should we expect? Woge will answer that question as we continue this out. GET THEM ON ESPN. GEICO. GETS YOU ACCESS TO LICENSED AGENTS? Twenty four
A look at Fred C. Trump's view of the world
"The pioneers important ship with Rolex when Donald Trump was announcing his candidacy for presidency. He said the American dream is dead and talked about how he was going to put America first now. Both of those phrases would certainly have been familiar to Fred. See Trump indeed so Frederick Chris trump to give him his full name. That was a family name. But it's hard not to enjoy the laugh. He who was of course. Trump's MM father now people have slightly misread. The sometimes in assumed that because Fred trump was an adult in the twenty s that he must have been trump's grandfather and in fact reviews of my book talked about Fred Trump as his grandfather. No no no the point is he's his father. We forget and I think to our peril first of all how old Donald Trump is as. He was born in Nineteen forty-six and secondly that he was the son of a much older father. So Fred See. Trump actually was a young man in this era that I'm talking about in the twenty s and so the world that he inhabited was this America. First `isolation xenophobic eugenicist world. Like Tom Buchanan Bannon. That took that stuff for granted it was a highly racist society and even the more progressive people were of course very very racist and many of their attitudes kids and Fred trump raised donald trump. You know in the forties in my view to with this worldview and basically what I'm saying the book is the apple doesn't fall Oliver far from the tree and trump has said over and over again how much he admires his father how much he adheres to his father's worldview most importantly in my live you the thing he said over and over and over again is that he is a believer in eugenics. Now trump himself never remembers the word eugenics. But that's neither here nor there. The attitudes that he's espousing he says over and over again. He's given dozens of interviews. You easy to find just Google Donald Trump and eugenics and you see him on video for twenty years thirty thirty years saying that. He's a believer in what he calls the gene theory. or He's a believer in jeans. He believes in what he thinks of as the racehorse theory of genes. which is that when you get a superior type person and you marry that superior type person to another superior type person you get superior type people that is eugenicist and that is very clearly what he believes? Leaves end in Fred. Trump's world that idea was America first and you can place for trump historically right at the heart of does indeed so in one thousand nine twenty seven it was actually just at the peak of America first political traction it was just starting to lose credibility Partly because of the way that it had been monetize so it was getting associated with corruption. Both by the clan in with a very corrupt Chicago mayor from my hometown the most corrupt city in America. A A guy called big Bill Thompson. Who was using America first to try to? It was a money making scheme. Also some things never change anyway so it was about to kind of really lose credence but at the peak of it in nineteen twenty seven in Queens which of course is where Donald trump would eventually grow up. It's where Fred trump was already living at that point and there was a memorial Oriole Day parade in May nineteen twenty seven at which the clan controversial had been permitted to March. They were given a permit now. This incident has since trump's election and been aronie ASLI described as Klan Rally and. I think it's important that we note the distinction. It was a Memorial Day parade at which the veterans were marching and the Red Cross was marching and children were marching and there were twenty thousand spectators. Not because they wanted to support the clan but because they were there for national parade but the Klan had as I say controversially been given permission mission to March in this parade as long as they weren't roped was what the police told them and it was a first amendment issue again about the right to assemble in the right to free speech. And so you can see why they said that they could. But they couldn't be hooded and gowned and some of them decided to be hooded and gown and scuffles broke out among the twenty thousand spectators. Because some actually objected to it as hate speech just as we would today some defended on the basis of freedom of speech just as people would today so these kind of scuffles broke out and it turned into a full blown riot. Twenty thousand people fighting over the clan in Queens and out of that twenty thousand six men were arrested five of whom self identified the police reports as clansmen and the sixth was Fred see trump. Now that is not proof that Fred trump was clansman and again some people have said arrests shows that he was. I don't think that does I don't think we can make quite that step. But it is remarkable to me that out of twenty thousand people the only six were arrested five of clansmen and one of them was trump. And what I do say in the book is that and I firmly believe this. Is that whatever we think Fred. Trump's reasons for being there might have been. He was not there to protest the clan and we know that because of his later record on race relations he was so racist when he started his property property development in the nineteen fifties which by the way he got from government loans. So all of these guys who you know they hate government handouts. But that's how Fred trump got his start was from a government handout and there was some kind of it is indeed it was he was hauled up before Congressional Committee to admit that he wildly overstated the cost of his loans which is in the book some might call fraud so he defrauded the government went to get handouts and then these and then his son is telling us that handouts are terrible and nobody should have handouts and out of this. He built these tenements. He built these housing projects in the New York area in Brooklyn Brooklyn and Queens and his policies for renting to tenants in these housing projects. Were so racist that Woodie Guthrie in the nineteen fifties wrote a song about how racist it was because he lived in one of them. It's called Almond trump. And it's about how racist Fred trump was and you have to be racist in the fifties to get people's attention for our racist assist. You are by one thousand nine hundred ninety three which was the year that Donald Trump took over the trump property empire from his father. They were sued by the Nixon Administration. Restauration for racial discrimination. And again you know the Nixon administration was not going out of its way to sue over racial discrimination it had to be so gratuitous for the Nixon administration to go after them and then of course in the case of Donald there are things like the central park five the five black men wrongly accused of raping a woman in Central Park. He called for the death penalty. Not with them. They were totally exonerated by DNA. He has never apologized. He has never said that he still calls it. A miscarriage of justice and it was a miscarriage of justice but not in the way that he thinks. So what I say is that although we cannot say that Fred trump was a card carrying member of the KKK. He was arrested with five of them and nothing that he ever did in the rest of his misbegotten life makes me think that he was there to argue against the clamp. Do you think a trump. Donald trump has a full understanding branding given how ignorant and he missed. His supporters appears to be an understanding of the origin of these phrases. And can they be reinterpreted in a positive way so first of all. I think that be the best way to understand. This is that it's like it's a world view that he grew up with. He's profoundly racist. We have so much evidence to see. How racist he is does? Does he know the detailed history of this. Of course not in fact historians don't know that detailed history of this Ri- wouldn't have written the book so nobody knows it but the fact that America first has these meanings meanings is definitely not lost to history and the KKK kept it alive underground. And all of these Neo Nazi groups and right wing groups kept this phrase alive and there's lots of evidence at that they would have rallies in the sixties and say it's an America first rally you can find the flyers and handbills and stuff. So there's lots of ephemeral evidence over the years that they kept this phrase alive and now they're using it on Neo Nazi message boards. It's on the daily stormer on storm. Front it's on their websites. So these guys have always used that phrase and when and David Duke who of course is the the most senior member of the KKK in America when he endorsed Donald Trump. He did so using that phrase he said he stands for what I've always stood for. He stands for America. Erica I it is a racist dog whistle and certainly trump's advisors know that Steve Bannon does read history. And Steve. Bannon doesn't know this Steve. Bannon also resuscitated facilitated a phrase called economic nationalism which he talks about all the time and most people don't realize that economic nationalism was part of the America first platform in Nineteen Nineteen and nineteen twenty and it was to keep America out of the League of nations to keep it from signing the treaty of Versailles because Europe was a cabal of overlords who wanted to create a global economy and they were going to make America a vassal state. which should sound pretty familiar? And it's not only about the ways that has shaped American political debates but of course it sounds an awful lot like the way that people talk about Brexit and as we know Bannon has been closely involved Cambridge analytica which he was on the board of has been closely involved with both of these campaigns and and his idea of economic nationalism is a hundred year old America first agenda. He did not pluck that phrase out of the air. Stephen Miller who remains trump's senior senior advisor he's the author of the policy that separating immigrant families at the southern border. He was also clearly. The author of the speech that trump gave in the oval office when he argued for his wall so he Stephen Miller also knows this stuff and the other phrase that was really associated with America. I which which I spent a lot of time explaining in the book was one hundred percent American which was another code and Stephen Miller on his high school yearbook page that he was one hundred percent American. So these guys do know these codes and I don't know that Donald Trump understands all of this history and understands how all of it intersects but he knows that it all supports his basic world view which is a eugenicist assist world view and that is the one that he learned from his father who also knew that this stuff was America first and it wouldn't surprise me at all if he had grown up in the fifties hearing his father. Talk about America. I that wouldn't surprise me one little bit. So is the American dream dead and do we revive it by putting America first in my view is that we shouldn't try it's like saying. Can we resuscitate tate. Heil Hitler will you could. But why would you want to. I want to do the opposite which is to discredited with.

U.S. Stocks Plunge Most in 2019 on Trade Tension
"The predicate for the market slide was according to CNBC and Bloomberg was the brouhaha over the trade dispute between Washington and Beijing in specific the president of the United States Donald Trump naming China a currency manipulator now that is not fresh of for example Chuck Schumer the minority leader of the Senate a Democrat also has tagged China as a currency manipulator why I'm in a six and sounds will break my bones soak okay their currency manipulator how does this can act to the market selloff and how does that connect to the this signaling that the market is giving us a a six or nine months hence good evening to your job he John well eighty eight connection this way let's stress up front that China with its one does what basically every country currency in the world does tags in this case someone explicitly to the dollar but every currency maintains a tight relationship of the dollar to the extent that it can and it does because the dollar factors into just about any global transaction so its economic suicide for countries not to have a tight currency relationship of the dollar so if the Chinese are manipulated everyone is a crucial here is that means the pitch the China doesn't have a currency policy is importing US dollar policy if the dollar strong the wind is strong if the dollars a week the one is weak the US dollar policy is China's policy by design and and this is a good thing to think back to nineteen ninety eight people were terrified that the Chinese would be linked their currency from the dollar and so from there why does this have the markets terrified because president trump is calling for a weak dollar a weaker dollar he thinks is again the president's get the dollar they want will what's that due to investors they are buying when they invest future income streams and dollars and one and so a weak dollar means a weaker currency in China to with predictably bad results for investors my understanding of the dollar is that we won it strong we we've wanted it strong since you know ancient times that would be Richard Nixon's administration why is a strong dollar preferable what does it mean for our markets what does it mean for our ability to be prosperous it domestically what it means is that it's a reminder that just as we never we never buy goods with dollars what we do is we exchange our labor for dollars you have a job I have a job and money is just the measure you today can that compensation for your labor so your work is your insurer importing and investments no different known invested dollars no one invest one what they do is they have dollars and Juan and they're directing their resources that that that those command a higher use and so when the currency is in decline what that means that when you put your money to work as an you direct resources to someone else to hire use and you actually even your investment you get a return it means that the dollars and one you get back our exchangeable for less than the ones in dollars that you put to work a year ago two years ago ten years ago and so the valuation a weak currency is a tax on the very investment that powers economic growth you cannot have economic growth without investment dollar yet due to valuation is putting a tax on it because what are we trying to get what we put money to work we want to get more dollars back well if the current season decline we're going to get dollars they're soggy it conveyed get lessons were going to be less likely to invest right we bought we we have we have less buying power we we've reduced our buying power with the weaker dollar now how how then do we deal with this present chatter from both sides of the aisle John this is not a partisan matter of of of saying the child is a currency manipulator meaning of course the US is a currency manipulator and that the dollar and the currency is pegged to order weakening how do we confront this John what anticipating that that's where we are right now what is the market telling us about how we prepare for it nine months from now well the market never prices in the present it always prices in the future and so I think the reaction yesterday was the market St wow this trade war that we kind of thought was going to slowly and that was going to get quiet is not on the verge of being quiet in fact it's taking a really ugly turned in the direction of currencies evaluation be is again a dollar to valuation is a global in that drive it right and not be stressed enough that when we take the dollar down currencies around the world go with it and that always and everywhere associates with poor advancement returns and it does for obvious reasons once again when you invest her here you're basically buying income streams in the future but if the currencies are worth less you've got to be more careful in how you allocate the resources you can't be isn't trap it and how you allocate the resources because you're going to see your returns taxed and so it's it's a very dangerous thing I've emailed the people I know inside the administration and said you know lucky if if president trump succeeds in getting the dollar he wants and he's going to fail no president can overcome a devalued currency the place to high the market has and not told us where to hide I saw there was a bond rally good for the markets I don't know about the metals I big been ignoring them but what you're describing is omnipresent weakness and there would be no particular place to hide just relatively good places to hide nine months from now it also suggests is going to be there's political turmoil ahead is that it isn't that a corollary of a weak currency I think you put it so well but gas without question isn't it interesting that president Nixon couldn't survive something is repeating his Watergate well the value of the currency in nineteen seventy two the Vegas stacked any Republican president ever made was going off the old standard yes five Americans earn dollars leave gold out of it Americans earn dollars you to value their savings in the earnings you think the electrics going to be happy and so he could survive

There's a unit formed in the agency. This is the end of the George H W Bush administration, George W Bush significantly had been a director of the Central Intelligence Agency, as part of his duties in Washington, during the Nixon administration, this unit is brought together, if in the counter espionage group of CIC, and it's headed up by Ray Reardon jeans there. And they're forming way of focusing on who it is. That is who has betrayed so many of our best sources out of the GRU the KGB, and they have a limited communication. So they're now putting together a list that's vast list, one hundred sixty right. When you. Put I put it together. Sandy. Yes. I think it was a little bit larger than that. But gene, and I did some paring down and got it to about one hundred sixty 'cause we will work off of manning tables, obviously, the first thing you do the people on that list were on the list for one reason, only, and that's what was because they had access to information about our loss cases, the loss cases, and so they have one hundred sixty names that's impossible. It's impossible as sandy, and gene. Right. That would take an army and they don't have an army. They just have their working quietly in rooms that are not compati- and not comfortable, and they're dealing with paper files, they agency is not computerized yet, in fact, maybe hasn't today, who knows. But I don't know. I don't know either. This is the old days, and if they'd had my macbook pro and I was talking to Jean right now on Skype would have been a lot easier. What you were doing Saturday gene, and sandy would have been chatting back and forth remotely. But here we are hundred sixty names and you come up with a way of voting the group that was here, and you voted on your, the people you like best after coming down to a list of five or six days. How did that voting go? What can you tell us about it? Well, this was Jane's idea because we had to prioritize as you say, we there's no way, we can investigate one hundred sixty people. So we ask the four people on our tests, voice, the two guys from the bureau from the FBI, Jane, and sandy, as well as six other individuals to more from the FBI. And then for from we ask them to list five or six people who made them uneasy. For whatever reason, and whom they thought we should take a close. Look at first. Additionally, we ask them to, we asked them to put them in rank order, the one person who made them the most uneasy makes them number one, and so on down the list, gene, and I then took the submissions. And we assigned a numerical value, if you were number one on anybody's list, got six points, number two, five and again so on down drum rolls Andy who's, who's the winner. That winner of this contest with twenty one points was none other than Rick aims, who has done who has done a worthy. And what does she know about Rick aims, Diana were than it was a an is a close friend of mine, as well as jeans? She was a longtime Soviet division officer. She also was the analyst in the field on the polio cough, case when he was in India on his first Dur additionally, she worked with Rick when he was assigned to Mexico. She was also assigned to Mexico and she became very good friends with Rick. And then, of course, his wife would be wife Roe sorrow, who was also assigned to Mexico with the Colombian embassy. She was also dear friends with Rick and his wife. Oh, sorry. Oh, which began in there. Time in New York. And she corresponded with some. While they were signed to. Where signed to Rome from eighty six after Mexican right after Mexico. They go to Rome. So they went to I they come back to the states. That's where he gets all of his all of his information that's where all in tears, to the Russians in April of nineteen eighty five he walked between Mexico and Rome. Exactly, exactly. So they're back in the states and nineteen eighty nine nine and Diana goes to visit them, she goes to visit them and she and I are working together at headquarters, and she comes into work one day, and she's very distraught. I ask what the problem is. She really doesn't want to tell me she said, I think I'm betraying somebody. So she said, it's Rick, and she said, I can't believe how much money Rozario and Rick appear, you know, are spending on I eighty. Nine they've bought a half a million dollar house without bartering. They have new cars as opposed to the ancient, Volvo Rosarito and Rosero, and Rick had lived sort of hand to mouth in Mexico, he'd left his first wife or resign go, they go to Rome. They come back. Suddenly, they're living the splendor and Diana's rocked by this. She tells you she tells the number of people and everybody's busy at this time and they're, and they're not focused on what this could mean although somebody does register and look into his finances, and what do you find in the first glance of his finances? This is eighty nine ninety first glance of his of Rick's finances, there were some transfers of money from lira two dollars, but, you know, they weren't big sums. And as it turns out, in this was the investigator, Dan Payne who later became a valuable, member of our task voice when he checks, these things or. Check the finances. It was the months that there weren't any big deposits. It was it just so happened to be that way. Note to myself, sandy, don't check one month. Always check three months and choosing random. I've, you know for future use spy. Exactly. And the other thing that was interesting was with Rick's account at what was then, you know, our, our credit union, the agency's credit union all of his deposits, and his loans were in keeping with what you would expect from a G S fourteen which is what he was at the time. So he kept that perfectly clean. But as it turns out, he was putting money everywhere. But we didn't know at the time the big thing, though, was the cash purchase of a half a million dollar house. He does have an explanation and we'll go forward quickly here because the focus comes more and more. You know, remember he won the contest and the vote on the content and he's polygraphed, but I'm, I'm frustrated the polygraph seemed to not work or is this particularly is this, an outlier that they're failing to pick up on Ames's inconsistencies. Is this just the nature of it that the one person who we know is guilty now managed to escape the polygraphs? Well, I think with the polygraph the thing you have to remember it is a tool period, and you don't pass or fail is Jane always love to say you clear, a polygraph now in the case of regains he cleared not just one polygraph but to police. One was an eighty six which he had before he went to Rome, he had been spine, for the Soviets for about a year, and he queers this second one and ninety one I guess it was he had to come back twice. You didn't clear it the first time I went through it. And the second time there was some problem now with finances, but with foreign contacts. And of course, Rick explains it. His perfect explanation, which the political for bought, and that was that Rosarito is from Columbia, her family lives, there, he's in, in Bogota a lot. He meets her relatives, and it's you know, he doesn't know it's quite possible that any one of them could be working for the local service. So that's how he gets around that one. He also explains the money using Bogota's. Well, he claims that Rosario family is very well to do. And you check that and you find that they are correct. What what we find out. Yes, we find out that it's a very important. I it's, it's a big name in Colombia, the family had, I think, provided the land for the largest soccer field and bogut. Aw. But later on. In a much wider investigation after the arrest and such, it wasn't that particular branch with a different branch of the family, then most sariano while she certainly had a name. They had a very important family name. Her family was not wealthy, but it was also compounded by the fact that her father had died, and I wanna say, eighty three eighty four and Rick would say, obviously, this money came from sorrow. And because we couldn't find out about a will, you know, upon the death was impossible to do that without bringing it to the tension of Rick. We couldn't eliminate the possibility that the money had indeed com from dad upon his death. The book is circle of treason, a CIA count of traitor, Alder games, Rick aims and the man and the many betrayed sandy Grimes, and gene Vakhtang are the authors senators just told you a clue, he's going to pick it up.

Washington's Inslee puts climate change at center of presidential bid
"It's been said that nothing is stronger than an idea whose time has come and for my next guest. Washington state governor Jay Inslee that idea is climate change. And that idea is time has come he staked his run for the White House in twenty twenty on what he calls America's climate mission. And his campaign platform says that quote, defeating climate change is the defining challenge of our time. And that it must be the foremost priority for the next president. That's a bold statement considering that climate change was practically a non issue in the last presidential election. There were no specific questions about climate policy in the debates, and according to the environmental new site, grist only, five minutes and twenty seven seconds were spent talking about climate change across all three presidential debates. That's two percent of the total talking time. So has the tide turned. Is the American public ready for a candidate who embraces this issue? That's what we're going to be talking about on our question to you listeners. How important is climate change compared to other national issues when it comes to winning your vote in the next presidential election on eight four four seven two four eight two five five eight four four scientific you can tweet us at scifi governor Jay Inslee as governor of Washington state. He's jumped into the pool of democratic presidential candidates for twenty twenty welcome to sign Friday governor, you bet it's the best day of the week. Thank you. Happy Friday because of you. Complimentary. Get you everywhere you've been called a single issue candidate. Would you disagree with that name? Yes. Because climate change is not a single issue. It's all issues. It's a matter of saving our economic assets where we had one point six billion dollars in lost because of leading west on the downside. The upside it's the number one job creator in United States in the next several decades clean energy jobs today are going twice as fast as the rest of the economy. The number one job fastest growing jealous. Today's solar installer. Never to wind turbine technician. So it is as much an economic promise as it is an environmental peril. It's a health issue. Look, it's with the thousands of our kids are suffering from from fossil fuel pollution, increasing the range of infectious diseases because of insect vectors loss of life during during hurricanes and heat waves. It's a national security issue. We know that the Trump is trying. To ignore the clear warnings from the Pentagon, and our intelligence services that this is a national security threat because we know that increasing droughts have potential to drive mass migrations with consequent political instability in violence. So it's not just a single issue is all of the issues, and is one that we have no more opportunities. This is our last chance. And when I've learned when he was governor as I've been for six years in the most successful economy in the United States you need to make priority decisions. It's one of the first functions leadership, and what I am saying is defeating climate change has to be the first foremost and term on duty of the next semester. Ration- because it is our last chance if you look at the clearest science fi report, it is becoming quite obvious that we've gotta move right now. Someone so much of the impacts of climate change that you were taking off there also seem to be included in the the green new deal that is working its way debating through congress, would you if you were still serving in congress, would you have your name among its co-sponsors? I think this has been a welcome development. I wrote a book accosted a book in two thousand seven that basically set out a vision for economic growth round clean energy. So I really welcome a wet. This is done to light up interest in this as as you indicated it's really important to get climate change on people's radar stope, and this has been very successful getting into the national conversation. It's also been very successful raising the scope of people's ambition. This cannot be just a check the box kind of issue. It has to be dominant organizing principle, the United States and insert. It's it's engaged. More communities in this discussion marginalize means frontline community just color in poverty that was the first victims of climate change. And so it's made clear something I believe that. As we go through this transition to decarbonised economy and a clean energy economy. We have to make this not. Just the transition. It has to be just transitioned so everyone can participate. So now, we start the heavy work at hard work of developing the policies that hopefully will follow what we've done in Washington right now, we're of beating the efforts in Washington state. And I hope we keep that that ball rolling. So how do you answer people who say addressing climate change is is too expensive? Or they want to take your hamburgers away from you. Well, I just say baloney. You know, I was having a discussion with big McCain of you a couple of weeks ago, and she was seeing exactly that. But, you know, Democrats take away your planes and your your railroads in your car. And I said, well, that's interesting Megan because as of this moment, I had a shiny blue General Motors all electric bowl. It was made by the American workers and Oreo on Michigan. And that's the type of destiny that we have. Usually, we'll have a president to unite the edgy nations in the innate can-do optimistic spirit of the American people to grow our economy around clean energy. We know we are capable of doing this. Because we've done we've done it so many times before whenever there has been a technological transformation. United States has been able to lead if we have leadership to get us going in. If I'm giving us Highlander I would intend to provide that that spark of leadership just to like John F Kennedy did when. When I was, you know, ten or eleven years of anything, and I believe with the spark of creativity ambition America can do that kind of thing again. But do you think that you know, I remember the Kennedy years? I remember the challenge they go to the moon. I remember Lyndon Johnson taking it over. I remember landing on the moon during the Nixon administration. This was a generational and decade long effort. Do we have that kind of political muscle now to see something through that we could change a whole society? Yes. Not only do we. But we have to have that. You know, what I think victory is the only option here Churchill in World War Two. So sure victory. You said it's really simple. It's only option because without victory. There's no survival. And that is the situation that we have to realize today if we follow science, and we we are scientifically literate nation. We deserve a scientifically literate president. And we have a scientifically illiterate person in that office right now who couple of days ago said that wind turbines cause cancer for goodness sakes. And that if we wind turbines, you won't be able to run your television here, we are going to Konami in my state. We've developed the best economy in the United States in part because we focused on clean energy. We have focused on science in. When you do those two things. Good things happen. Not only to your health. To prevent your force from burning down. And by the way, this is very personal to me 'cause I've met the victims of climate change. I was in paradise California a few months ago, and you know, this town of twenty five thousand people that was burned to the ground looks like a post apocalypse movie in Hollywood, I remember meeting a woman named Marsha. Moss in in seminal springs community about one hundred mobile homes burned. She lost everything. She wanted us to to do something about climate change to produce these forest. Fires. And I think we need a president that will do just that. So yes, I do believe we we the company's ready. And I and I believe that park is pulling in shooting Iowa one of our democratic voters. So I'm happy to the just in time at the right moment. He yet carbon pricing ballot initiative failed in your own state in the last election for the second time another pricing initiative failed in two thousand sixteen. What do these failures mean to you are, you know, are people still not getting it? I think what they show is that we have to be willing to use the most powerful Newell fuel in the country, and that's perseverance, and we have to use perseverance, and we have to use a multiple tools in the toolbox carbon pricing system is one of them with. Fortunately, there are dozens of others. And so we are we are now addressing I'm promoting five bills in my legislature, all of which are moving forward one of which would would guarantee Washingtonians of one hundred percent, clean electrical grid, another that would provide us with clean fuel standards. So we have cleaner transportation fuels and other that would require net of euro commercial building. So we don't waste energy another that will have an incentive program. So more people not just you know, wealthier people, but more people have access to the cars and the like, so we know there's a. Multiple ways to go forward on this. And we're doing this in my state, and I think we have to have the same attitude inner nation, we can do that. If we have a president who's both knowledge of what these things and has had a multi decay. Oh commitment as I've had I've been at this year over twenty years now into some of the first legislation in two thousand three I started the US climate alliance with governor Jerry Brown, we know twenty three states or moving forward. I think this is a good sign, by the way for those. Who question our ability to move forward? This organization that I helped start now twenty three states that are committed to defeating climate change. So and we did this in part because we wanted to world to know they're still intelligent life in the United States. And we've demonstrated that it's one of the reasons that the rest of the world is continuing to move forward. So there is reason for optimism because we know there's there's many ways to to build the clean energy. And we're doing that right here in my state. Let's go to the phones. Eight four four seven two four two five five. Let's go to Ames Iowa. Joe? I welcome to science Friday. Hi, thank you. You know, I think it's really points out of a real flaw. We have in our election system every four years. I see all of these politicians come to Iowa, and they speak at these forums put on by our agriculture powerhouses, all of them speak in favour of everything. That has to do with, you know, animal agriculture ethanol all of these things that really cause global warming and all of them are scared to death to speak out against anything to do with animal agriculture because they know that the farm bureau is other powerful egg this will sink in that even goes, I mean, it's it's completely true for the Republican party.

One of the interesting things that most people are not aware of is that years later report came out in the New York Times that the f. b. i. had conducted a CPR secret poll among black Americans and found that more than twenty five percent of African Americans were supporters of the Black Panther party felt that the Black Panther party was fighting. Their interest is significant portion of the America of the African American population of this country was supportive of of your revolutionary organization. And yet as you were saying Nixon immediately ordered that you be crushed, could you talk about what happened in that first few years of the Nixon administration to the panther party. Exactly the year of nineteen sixty nine is the year. Now, remember I said he had a meeting with j. Edgar Hoover and Jade ago who were in the December the first week of December stated nationally on television that we were threat to the internal, the blackout, the party is a threat to the internal security of America. Come come. What was February seventeenth seventeenth. John a buddy Carter and John Huggins will murdered at UCLA. They were the leaders of the black path to party and loss Angeles California now. But she Carter really had gotten out of his gang group. 'cause he, he ran a three thousand member gang and he created a political organization call wretched of the earth delay to become and he later became rub. They headed up to southern California chapter the black part in the Los Angeles community. Eric, the what I'm trying to say here is that. That was the first attack on the part of the power structure using the us organization, etcetera. In a conflict situation to kill and murder. The leaders of the Los Angeles chapter, the blackout, the party do that process in the next three or four months. They attack more than twenty two offices I'm talking about in Indiana. I'm talking about the, they blew up the office and demands. I will literally got the crew Clinton of blew up that blow up that building. And I'm telling you. In San Diego brother. Bell was opening up to San Diego office at eight AM in the morning, and the police and FBI came jumped out of cars and came into place and shot him dead killing murdering. So I'm just says that period of tacking by the end of that year with the murder of Fred Hampton and then the shootout in Los Angeles, four days later after that cetera I have in my organization, I had twenty eight dead blackout to party members sixty nine wounded and defending ourselves. We defended ourselves and many of these attacks. By the end of that year, fourteen police were kill because we shot back when they came in shooting in us. We did not play. We shot back

I hear some top news headlines a Senate panel overwhelmingly approved a Bill that would protect special counsel Robert Muller from being fired without cause the proposal which passed the Senate Judiciary committee fourteen to seven represented a bipartisan show of support for the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election, but serious political and legal hurdle stand in the way of the Bill becoming law with some questioning, whether it's constitutional or even necessary President. Donald Trump said he has decided not to interfere with the Justice department, which is conducting an investigation of his associates alleged ties to Russia. But he suggested there was a point at which he might saying in an interview with Fox News, FOX and friends. I may. Change my mind at some point. Mr. Trump has publicly criticised top officials in the Justice department and the F B I over the Russia probe and earlier this month privately mulled taking steps to remove them. Dr. Ronnie, Jackson President Trump's nominee to run the veterans affairs department withdrew his candidacy Thursday morning. It followed the release of allegations that erect a government vehicle while drunk and freely gave out prescription drugs without paperwork. Dr. Jackson, who is Mr. Trump's White House physician took himself out of the running after Democrats on the Senate veterans affairs committee released a summary of allegations. They had compiled through interviews with about two dozen people who've worked with them in a statement, distributed by the White House. Doctor, Jackson said, the charges were completely false and fabricated.

Thanks for listening everyone. It's something that hasn't happened for nearly half a century. The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits fell to the lowest level since December nineteen sixty nine. The Labor Department says initial jobless claims fell twenty four thousand last week to a seasonally adjusted. Two hundred nine thousand joining us from Washington to talk about falling jobless claims is Josh Mitchell, economics reporter for the Wall Street Journal, Josh two hundred. Nine thousand claims is the lowest level since early in the Nixon administration. This is yet another sign of a tight labor market, isn't it? Yeah, it means employers are laying off few workers that has been declining this year and two hundred. Nine thousand is an exceptionally low level of the number of workers being laid off. And that's basically what jobless claims are. It's a proxy for layoffs and this is just one of many signs that the labor market is pretty tight. It's as strong as it's been in years, and it bodes well for the jobs report that is set to come out next week and the latest figure was also considerably lower than expected. Yeah, the projection. I think was about two hundred twenty eight thousand among economists. And I should mention these numbers go up and down each week so it could be, you know this latest number could be revised later on next week. You know, the government tries to estimate these things pretty well, but sometimes they get it wrong. It's, you know it can be pretty imprecise. But whether it's two hundred nine thousand or whether it's two hundred, twenty thousand still very low level. And it's just another another sign that the labor market just pretty strong right now, do econ. Honest and other observers. Take a closer look at the broader trend, the four week moving average of claims? Yeah. And again, if you look at that, the trend is still the same planes have been falling. I think they were down by a couple thousand. If you look at the four week trend, which is basically just looking at what they've done over the past month. So the level again is very, is very low. And I guess the question is, what does this mean for wage growth? For example, what does this mean for the the fed? The fed looks at a lot of different aspects of the jobs market to determine whether we're at what they would consider full employment, which means they might have to start raising interest rates. If if it appears that we're there or for even, you know a above that level that something the feds trying to see right now where exactly are well, does the fed talk about something like jobless claims as much as they talk about the unemployment rate, which is been at four point, one percent for a long time or job growth to do. They talk about jobless claims as much. I guess they figure everything into it, right? They're just trying to. Look at all the pieces to the puzzle jobless claims I would imagine is not nearly as big of an indicator of the labor market, for example, the unemployment rate, but it is something they look at it and you know the, the unemployment rate comes out once a month basically. So these jobless claims data kind of gives you a preview week week to week. It's one of those indicators. It's one of the few indicators that comes out each week. And so one good thing about it is you don't have to wait a whole month to to get some type of PICO with the jobs market is doing. Could a report like this, make it more likely that the fed would raise interest rates. Additionally, this year, I know they're on scheduled for three, right? And you know, again, I don't think they would ever base their their decision just on jobless claims. In fact, I know they want it. They are looking at a lot of different things. The main ones are inflation and the unemployment rate, how tight is labor market. Again, I think the big question now is if we are at this maximum level of employment, are we gonna start seeing higher wage where we have seen signs of higher. H growth and we've seen signs of higher inflation. That's kind of the theory that if the labor market gets tighter, if employers are finding a hard time to find workers, they will start paying more and bidding up the wages of workers. And if that is happening in their signs that it is then that'll keep the fed on track to raise interest rates. They wanna make sure that the labor market continues to expand at a healthy pace, but that you don't have this skyrocketing inflation that that would cripple the economy. And so this is just another indication that we, we are, you know, either there or or approaching that point where we are to healthy level of expansion. And so the economy is strong enough to withstand additional interest rate increases Wall Street Journal, economics reporter, Josh Mitchell, joining us from Washington. Thanks, Josh. Sure. Thank you.
