Because then we'll be able to go precinct by precinct which right now we can only go county by county. Certain states are releasing their precinct data. Soon some already have because then we'll be able to go congressional district by congressional district. Remember the founding fathers actually wanted presidents to be elected based on congressional district originally leaving it to the states but be at every congressional district voted for president and that was their singular electoral similar to how nebraska does it. And then we'll be able to see actual precinct by precinct data not just county by county data. We'll be able to zero in exactly where a lot of this a regularity and manipulation very well might have been concentrated. You see president. Donald trump executed a surprise red soon.

Sydney went underground for the next four days. As each day passed. His beard grew. Oh so did his anxiety he might get out of Russia yes but he had completely failed his mission on these dark nights. Sydney felt deep pangs of fear. Fear that he would die without redeeming himself. Hopefully the beard would give him that chance.

While he'd never had had much loyalty to anyone not even his homeland. Sydney hated the communist Soviets. The cruel regime led with terror and barbaric punishments. They stood against everything. Sydney believed in namely wealth and ambition. The Bolshevik revolution ignited a fury in Sydney. That would drive him for the rest of his life but even Napoleon had been defeated in Russia When Lennon took power on November eighth nineteen seventeen? Britain was firmly in agreement with Sydney's kidneys discussed Lennon's first order of business was to negotiate a peace treaty with Germany. Losing Russian support meant that the allies including Britain could lose the war. The Soviet government had to be brought down. Sydney was called indices indices office at M. I.

"Under the direction of Kaiser Wilhelm Wilhelm the second the German military was expanding at a breakneck pace building new armament factories as quickly as possible? Britain believed the Kaiser was preparing for war see explained that they had placed an agent inside one of the German factories. Called the Krupp works. The agent had only just begun to send back reports when he vanished without a trace. See believe I believe the Germans had discovered the spy and killed him now. They needed a replacement Sydney any. Despite the danger was game to prepare for the mission he worked for a few weeks in British welding factory there. He developed developed a competent set of trade skills to back up his new legend. A legend is defined by the international spy museum as a despise claimed background or biography usually supported by documents and memorize details. It is essentially a false identity entity adopted to give a spy credibility in a new environment. Sydney's specialty this time. Sydney created the legend of of Carl. Hahn a German speaking Russian from the city of rave all or Modern Day Talon in Estonia Hans background included employment as a welder in the massive shipyards of Saint Petersburg as Carl Hahn he had little trouble getting a job as a welder in crops growing factory in Essen Germany and Sydney actually did the job working long difficult hours on the plant assembly line for several months in nineteen zero nine but he was simultaneously taking notes for his other job. He noticed that the arms factory had added several new workshops and had plans for more these notes however were not enough enough. He needed copies of the plans to send the London. Getting blueprints and production. Schedules would not be easy as leaving his station on the assembly line would quickly aroused suspicion but Sydney came up with a solution solution. He would volunteer for the factories. Fire brigade the fire crew worked night shifts and patrolled the entire plant Sydney. Use the freedom of this new role to begin making nightly visits to the factory office. Lock pick and flashlight in hand hand but he was faced with another problem. He couldn't take the plans out of the office without raising alarm and he couldn't take photographs offs in the dark. At first he tried tracing the plans on thin paper but the process took far too long then he had an idea he convinced the fire brigade chief. They needed a complete set of plans for the factory to indicate where ear. All the fire extinguishers hydrants were located all the blueprints were copied and moved into the fire chiefs office where Sydney could easily consult them and memorize each page one by one however however his frequent visits to inspect the plans brought questions pretty soon Sydney had to back off. There was Only one tactic left to try. He would simply steal the blueprints and disappear. It was easier said the done once. He stole the plans all of Germany would be looking for him he would have to get out fast so he reached Out to London for help. Sydney bought a train ticket to the city of Dortmund where she had a contact waiting with a new passport. Close in money money then. It was time for action after everyone had gone home for the night. Sydney slipped his lock picks into his pocket in clicked on his flashlight. He approached the fire chiefs office and snuck inside expecting to be in and out within minutes. But the chief life was still there. Sydney quickly adapted. He leaped forward and wrapped his arm around the fire chiefs throat strangling singling him until he felt the man go limp. Sydney dropped him. Grab the stack of critical blueprints and began again. Tearing them into quarters. He stuffed each quarter into a separate envelope he had smuggled in under coveralls. Each one was addressed addressed to a separate contact in London Paris Brussels and Rotterdam this way. Even if one set of the plans were lost in transit. The other three parts would still arrive. Sydney stuff the full envelopes back under his dirty coveralls and made his way to the S. and train station dropping the envelopes in a mailbox before he boarded the train for Dortmund the next day wearing a new suit and carrying a leather briefcase with a crisp British passport. Sydney boarded a train for Paris. He had escaped the while. This story was heavily embellished by Sydney. He returned to London in nineteen eleven. Eleven try on Fendt but see was an interested in celebrations. He was eager to send his most valuable agent back into the field within weeks. Sydney was on his way to Saint Petersburg to gather Intel about Russia's efforts to rebuild its navy adopting the legend of wealthy businessmen Solomon Garrison Bitch. It didn't take Sydney long to strike up friendships. With several high level navy officers boozing and dining with them regularly his mission was long long term and would rely on these relationships all the way. They're small talk helped him fill in the con- tours of Russia's current situation him after the war with Japan the czar had ordered his armada to be rebuilt even bigger than before it was is a massive task that Russian shipyards couldn't possibly handle on their own so the contracts were being sent to German shipbuilders blohm on Voss us due to his fluency in Russian in German has well as his now extensive list of Russian naval contacts Sydney was able to earn a management position in the German companies office in Saint Petersburg as a manager Sydney now had access access to all of the communications and construction plans moving between Russian naval offices and the German factories then Sydney requested access to the blueprints for German ships to other German owners were suspicious of his sudden interest in their ship designs signs but Sydney knew how well ego and vanity could be used to persuade potential assets. He spun a clever story about comparing preparing the lackluster Russian designs with cutting edge. German ships the delighted German owners gave their full cooperation thus Sydney was privy to the technological developments of both the Russian and German navies during the buildup to war over the the next three years and the war was indeed coming by early nineteen fourteen political stability stability on the continent was crumbling in June. A Bosnian assassin killed and archduke of the austro-hungarian Empire on August first nineteen fourteen war was declared in retaliation the two largest military forces in Europe.

He was smart enough to know that a world war would provide ample opportunities for profit especially if he could get to America. Where many of Europe's wartime supplies were being produced? A on December member twenty-sixth nineteen fourteen. Sydney boarded a ship bound for the United States. He spent most of the war in New York City.

"True to his future as a spy. There are many conflicting versions of Riley's early life. It's nearly impossible to settle on a true version of events. This principle is true throughout most of Riley's life and career ear from beginning to end the account he gave is often at odds with the established facts and the lies. He told in a way reveal view as much about him as the actual truth does so throughout this story will mainly follow Riley's own version of what happened but we'll also also point out any obvious untruths for the listeners. Benefit the legendary intelligence agent known as the ace of spies claim to be born in Odessa Ukraine on March twenty four around eighteen. Seventy three then a part of the Russian empire in his early years. He was called Georgi Georg rich after his Russian father. It wasn't until eighteen ninety three when he was nineteen that he said he learned his family's terrible secret he was not his father's son. His mother had an affair with a local Jewish doctor named Rosenbloom. He was the result and his real father had had named him Zygmunt on this was all hidden to protect his mother's reputation when the truth came out his identity changed overnight. However Odessa's birth records show that Riley was likely born Shlomo Rosenbloom? The story of his mother's affair is reportedly still true. Although evidence suggests it was his father's cousin and not a local doctor. Although the reasons are unclear the boy was now known as Zigmund Rosenbloom. He claimed that after discovering his family's lies as he left a letter for them implying he was going to hurl himself into the frozen sea near the port writing that they should look for him. I'm under the ice of the Odessa new harbour however Zigmund lund had no intention of killing himself. He just wanted to escape. He said he did go to the harbor but instead of suicide aside he stowed away on a British merchant ship bound for South America and quickly disappeared into the vast plantation lands of the Amazon the perfect place to lose himself and find a new identity by the time he resurfaced in Brazil in eighteen. Ninety five now twenty-two he learned to speak fluent Portuguese. This was is not surprising as even from an early age Rosenbloom demonstrated an incredible aptitude for languages like many spies. He was polyglot this meant. He spoke many languages with near native fluency including Russian German English and French all of which would be imperative in his future missions but to find work in Brazil it was better to blend in and avoid questions going going by the name Pedro to hide his European background. He signed on as the Cook for a British army expedition. Three officers were heading up up the Amazon River. With a native guide to explore the UNMAPPED forest according to Rosenbloom the expedition was ill fated from the start the British explorers knew little of the native tribes or languages linkages had no exposure to the native diseases and were poorly equipped for the heat and humidity. All three of them soon came down with fever then. The voyage became even more treacherous one night while the expedition party slapped Zygmunt awoke awoke to the sound of rustling leaves approaching footsteps. He got up from his ten to investigate and saw shadows moving in on their encampment. Can't it was an attack. Zygmunt launched into action. He grabbed one of the officers. Revolvers and end with the help of gunfire drove the hostile natives back into the dark trees revealing another of his many talents he was an expert spirt marksman when the chaos subsided. The guide was nowhere to be seen. His betrayal was clear he had had hatched a plot with one of the local tribes to kill the Brits while they slept then steal their weapons and supplies it was only Rosenbloom blooms keen hearing and quick action that had saved their lives on. The journey was far from smooth sailing after this. It wasn't long before one of the British officers succumbed to fever and died the other two men decided sided turn back and Zygmunt offered to lead them out of the dense jungle but even after his heroic rescue the officers were suspicious. This of him he could be a turncoat just like the Brazilian guide so he came clean and unusual action for him and revealed that he was not pedro but Ziege Mond Rosenbloom a Russian emigre who spoke English. The officers were astounded founded and delighted. Finally someone from their part of the world generally speaking someone they can talk to who knew the local language As well as their own from here the party got more. Cheerful Rosenbloom proved to be capable river guide and the leader of the expedition addition major father. Gill was increasingly impressed with the young man's abilities when they returned to Rio de Janeiro. The grateful major wrote a check for fifteen hundred British pounds to the young man. He now affectionately called Ziguinchor League and he also gave him an official British passport with this passport. The twenty two year olds Zygmunt. Rosenbloom had get another chance to try on a fresh identity to become someone even farther from that shamed young man. He left behind in Ukraine. He didn't hesitate to take it once again. This story likely isn't true. Evidence shows that in eighteen ninety five live. Rosenbloom wasn't in Brazil but had just arrived in London from France no archive records show and Amazonian owning expedition. During that time and the only major father gill retired in eighteen eighty one on despite that in London Zygmunt Rosenbloom was truly a new man. Money burning a hole in his pocket he bought a new wardrobe of lavish suits in tailored shirts. He went to the gambling tables at high end hotels and he was always with a beautiful woman however this free wheeling lifestyle quickly depleted his funds and made him few real friends by the end of the year. Zeke Monday was almost out of cash and had no one to turn to but major father gill the major supposedly supposedly proposed a solution to the young man's predicament. He mentioned that he had connections with the British secret service and suggested that Zigmund might return to Russia on behalf of the Intelligence Agency Zygmunt however refused the prospect of returning to his homeland where he had supposedly lost his honor and his family was too painful for him instead instead. He ignored his problems. He stayed in England and allegedly began a passionate affair with a writer named Ethel Lilian Voinovich. She was several years older than him and she was making her name in the British literary scene however their relationship would not survive their Italian Italian vacation. While in Italy Zygmunt discovered another love. That would drive him for the rest of his life. The study of Napoleon. He was dazzled by the story of the Little Frenchman who'd come from nothing but risen to the greatest heights of wealth and prestige on the back of his ambition as he contemplated his is money problems on the hotel balcony and Florence smoking his customary cigarette Zygmunt thought of this new hero then he recalled called major father.
