How Biden's appointment will affect international religious freedom
"There has been in recent years. A fair emphasis placed on the notion of religious freedom. And the question arises. Of course on this, like so many other issues. What changes will be made with the change at the White House and we're joined now. By Susan Crabtree. White House and national political correspondent at real clear politics dot com. Susan. Thank you for being with us. Thanks for having me Jim, are you speaking here about religious freedom in this country or around the world? Well, in this case, I'm talking about international religious freedom. That was a big emphasis in the Trump Administration, State Department with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Thean Basseterre for religious freedom. Can't uh And Brownback another cans and seeming up to make it a big priority in the Trump administration. They really did more on this issue than And the administration. In the past, they held a huge summit that attracted 100 and five countries from around the world, the biggest of its kind. To really Look out on this issue and talk about issues that there are playing out around the world that are basically Terrible circumstances in China with nearly million Wickers, um being persecuted and forced into labor camp. And in places like Burma, where they're working. Go. Muslims have been slaughtered by the tens of thousands in recent years and pushed out become refugees. Think huge refugee problem. So this Thies air issues that the Trump administration made a huge, Ah, big priority at into integral part of it. Um, foreign policy, and we're wondering on a lot of the people in the advocacy community in Washington and around the world are wondering if it's going to continue. And I understand that. Ah, Mr Brownback is quite optimistic that this will continue as well as our speaker Pelosi and former Republican Congressman Frank Wolf. Well, I don't know about Speaker Pelosi and and Frank Wolf. They were they did get together. This is a priority for secret Pelosi over the years as well. She's spoken about out about human rights in China. When, as far back as when the Congress is considering most favored nations status that creates status for China. She's always been ah, big advocate of human rights when it comes to religious freedom. She and Frank Wolf teamed up and did have a big debate. And, um, at one of the summit that I was just talking about, But in terms of where Biden is, we really don't know it. Kind of a candle in his administration, because He has talked about his own personal faith quite a bit on the campaign trail, but we don't know where he stands in terms of making religious freedom the priority of its foreign policy. Because he seems like people are fearful that climate change is going to really be the big push. We already see John Kerry being named as the Called climates are on, and the President elect Joe Biden, has that pledged he would rejoin the Paris climate accord. Although, of course we are able to walk and chew gum at the same time. I believe, right. We could do both, couldn't we Well, one would hope, but they will see pretty soon here, whether a divided names and Ambassador for religious freedom And that would show that he is he. This is a bigger priority in one might think for his administration. Um, the Obama administration left that position. Taken for several years, and that concerns some of the activists and, um and they're worried, very worried that this is going to become less of a priority. Under Joe Biden. But you know, it depends on who he named to replace Sam Brownback. He There are a number of people named circulating. Certainly Katrina plant of what is one of those people. She is the daughter of Tom Lantos, who actually served in the administrations. Certain Congress with Joe guidance, and he was on Lee, Holocaust survivor to have ever held a seat in Congress. And he has quite a legacy going, and until then, it was very supportive that in fact, Between plant is what is now running human rights sanitation, and she gave Joe Biden, um one of its big first awards a number of years ago, and Biden had pledged to not turn a blind eye to this type of religious persecution. Um, he actually said that we have to be true to Tom Lantos. His legacy so If he names a between Atlantic Into sweat. I think that be advocacy, community community and globally will be a little bit more sure that he's taking this issue very, very seriously and will continue these big summit that we've seen during the Trump administration. And the groundwork that Come peyote and Brownback laid
Expats in Italy
"Let's start the hour with a look at the other side of the coin has a couple of americans explain how they reinvented themselves when they moved to italy. Have you ever liked what you saw in italy so much that you dreamed of actually moving there. I have to admit i've been tempted myself. We're joined now on travel. With rick steves by two people who gave into that temptation and now they're living their dreams and rod left her job and twenty fourteen and moved to cnn and long so for him. To medallion settled down within near sorrento above the coffee. Coast anna an and join us now to tell us their story. Thanks for joining us. Thanks so anna. How did you end up in sienna. I studied italian in college. Fell love with it. Decided to move to italy after college. Move to to rin then ended up doing graduate work in manchester became professor and then realized that i needed to get to sienna because i did my thesis on saint catherine of sienna and every summer i went every summer. Got harder to come back to the states. So i eventually just decided to move there. And that was a few years ago and You must like it. Because you're still there i do. I love it by the way big industrial city in the north. No nonsense fantastic city. Though the best food real interim people think about that but you ended up in sort of the fairytale medieval tower not an end lung. What's your story. I changed my major twice in university and so decided to take months break to go to italy to try to learn the language. Because i'd been there on vacation before and then after six months decided to stay in ended up marrying an italian and been thirty eight years living in sorrento thirty eight years in beautiful lemon cellos cream. Lemon cellos with those nothing. Better i can't think of a more dolce rental so now you've been there thirty eight years in a small town a small community in community above surrender. You always the foreigner You don't look italian. I'm a foreigner. I definitely have strange ways the way i do things It's foreign but i've been absorbed into the community. They think of me as a local. Because i've withstood thirty eight and you respect the do respect them and there's a lot of my friends that were foreigners that have left sense and they get no respect. I can respect accepted in the community. Are you taken seriously at community meetings or parent teacher meetings. Whatever you might be into you sit there at the table and and you're part of the community and they'll ask me about my opinion about local ideas and things and i'm raising family in the community as well so it touches my life. Now anna i always think of who settled in. Europe is experts. Yes but you're also just flat out. Immigrants immigrants exactly it which my friends in santa always remind me of ohio the immigrants. What's the difference between an ex pattern and immigrant. Well if we're going to be blunt the color of your skin. Isn't that something. I know in italy relationships seem to be really important to get things done personally and in your in your work life. Talk about the importance of relationships. In italy the hugely important and i think that had i not found myself in a contrada in sienna. I don't think i would have stayed because it's so important to be a part of a community. And i am the american in the she wolf so you really identify with the she wolf district. Yes loo- i know that because you guys won the palio two times in one year. Yes we did. And cnn has this passion for the neighborhood. yes. I mean famously. With these contrada. Yes and think that. Cnn is very much a walled city in in both senses of the word because it has the walls that are still there from medieval times. But there's this wall mentality as well where it's hard to enter and to become a part of the community. So i feel very lucky that i found myself in the contrada and they accepted me eventually but like and said it took awhile. Oh she's still coming back so she is she
Intel warning of possible nationwide attacks as D.C. locks down
"Director called a concerning level of chatter, a joint Federal intelligence bulletin warns the attack on the capital could be a significant driver of violence for armed militia groups and racist extremists who may wish to disrupt next week's inauguration. The bulletin viewed by CBS News, senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge. Warned law enforcement nationwide to be on high alert for potential attacks on state capitals, Federal buildings, businesses, even homes of lawmakers. Law enforcement has multiple concerns is certainly the militia groups Thank you and on proud boys, but there is also a concern for that long wolf. The Secret Service is considering closing the entire National Mall for the inauguration, a space usually open to hundreds of thousands who gathered to watch the ceremony. Much of Washington's business district is already locked down with roads closed to traffic. And the number of national Guard troops deployed to D. C could potentially pass 20,000 deceive Ning Vice President Mike Pence, attended an inauguration security briefing at FEMA headquarters. Anybody who blocks her and have its violence in the coming week should count on a visit Some lawmakers air so concerned they're changing their schedules and buying bulletproof vests. Our expectation is that someone would try to kill us. But it's not just D. C. There's alarm coast to coast. The messaging couldn't be clearer that there is ongoing discussions about attacks on government at all levels. And that we have to be in a heightened state of awareness heightened state of deployment the entire LAPD. Nearly 10,000 officers have been told starting Monday to be in uniform through the inauguration. Michigan, Ohio, Oregon and Wisconsin among the states now using the National Guard to help protect state capitals. All 56 FBI field offices have set up a command post. Other federal agencies have told all of their officers to be on standby, and the U.

Is Mourinho to Blame for Spurs' Poor Form?
"It's thursday. i'm gap. He's jewels jobs. We got so much stuff going on because mountie. She'll put your gino winning his first trophies manager. I think his first kofi ever i. We'll be joined by franklin buff to talk a little bit about that in a minute. Manchester united top of the league first time in january. First time since the sir. Alex ferguson era by your munich. Out of the german cups is i don't mean the be. Let's start with tottenham hotspur because we've been talking about their chances are they're going to be better worse than last year. How they're pushing. I feel like i've seen this again. I think they've dropped ten points from leading positions. They played fulham last night. You figure you know not easy but full no time to prepare as well. We'll get to that in a minute. And there's more count sempe gab. They take the lead the play well for twenty five minutes and then they stop the talking and they just want to protect that lead. They want to control the game to manage the game. But there's another hour to go. But he's not a bad idea necessarily when you've sawn and harry kane and all these counter-attackers but you don't even counterattack. You do nothing. You just sit deep and you just wait and we saw that against wolves. What wolf scored in the end we against palace. Guess what in the end and now we see that a home at home against fulham where you just stop playing hurricane. One sean tonga. The whole game. That's his goal twenty minutes in after that. Nothing just nothing and i just don't understand why i'm more for protecting your lead in the last ten minutes you bring another center box in or i don't know you you put back five and you you make sure that you don't leave to more space and etc but no one. There's an hour to go. Don't give not extra confidence to the opposition team. Don't invite pressure. don't let them play. I i take your point. I'm wondering if maybe this was a game. Where i thought was very good when he was on the pitch. This is maybe a game where i always mentioned him. But if you have a lasalle so that you can bring on that may be all of a sudden you can keep the ball more. You can keep the ball further away. You can be a little bit more balanced in in how you do it. You know rather than going. I mean if you're if you're just right now do you go and you knock it down. Levi's store and say look. Don't look at me. This is the best i can do in this thing. That's true i don't. I'm sorry. I don't think that's the best you can do. I don't know the price. I lease the last time i spoke to some of them. They were happy but since december the six when they went top of the table the seven in the league. They lost two hundred four. I mean this is. This is not good enough. This is just not good enough. And i think you could say your needs better player or you need different profiles there and they're still. I still think that he gets his wrong. That tactics is wrong because the pleasure doing what he says. he's saying. Okay win the lead saw against arsenal in a second of and they were up and that was fine and they managed to get out and okay good but as we said against war against pilots against on this. Just not good enough. I'm sorry you keep talking. Last night. In a game against tim against fulham who had played three days three days before with the strongest team in the africa because he didn't play again for another week.
Walsh says Boston 'is not just my hometown, it's my heart' in likely final State of the City address
"Year year run run at at Boston Boston City City Hall Hall is is about to come to an end. We may be hurting. But the state of our city's resilient to state of our cities United the state of our city is hopeful in the state of our city is deep down Boston Strong there. Marty Walsh is giving a virtual elbow bump to the city and what is expected was his final state of the city address and like everything else during the pandemic. Crowd of thousands is relegated to the couch to watch an emotional mayor offer words of thanks and encouragement as he prepares his next chapter in Washington, where Wolf deliver the speech, virtually live from the newly renovated Roxbury branch of the Boston Public Library, talked a lot about the pandemic. Said that while the city is hurting, we are deep down Boston strong And then his voice cracked, and he seemed to tear up a little bit toward the end of the speech when he talked about how he is leaving his job to become U. S secretary of Labor. The truth is, I'm not going to Washington alone. Bringing Boston with me. This city is not just my hometown is my heart. By the end of the speech, there was no question how much the city means to the man. And despite the pandemic, he spoke of hope, saying, We have tough days ahead of us, but we've been knocked down before and we always get back up. Carl
U.S. Justice Department investigating more than 170 people over Washington, DC riots
"Six days after the violent attack on the us capital law enforcement finally help the first federal press briefing about what happened. That is an acting attorney. General united states the podium or the director of the fbi not just the local guys acting us attorney the district kumble columbia and the assistant director in charge of the fbi. Washington field office to talk to the country on camera for the first time about the attempted insurrection against the us government at the capitol. And what they are doing to bring the rioters to justice. We have already opened one hundred and seventy more than one hundred seventy subject files meaning. These individuals have been identified as potential persons that committed crimes on the capitol grounds inside and outside so of those one hundred and seventy cases that have already been opened in. I anticipate that's going to grow to the hundreds in the next coming weeks we've already charged over seventy cases just yesterday. Our office organizers strikeforce of very senior national security prosecutors and public corruption prosecutors. they're only marching. Orders from me are to build seditious and charges related to the most heinous acts that occurred in the capital some encouraging actions. There is still feels like things are not quite moving that quickly given the scope and stakes of what is at issue here and more importantly the impending threat of further armed assault politicos national security correspondent in touch with virtual joins. Me now natasha. I what what did you. What was your takeaway from the briefing today. Well it was clear that the fbi first of all was trying to do some cleanup on its own behalf. So the fbi official their emphasized that the warnings that they received were in fact shared with their state and local partners so they did share them with local law enforcement officials according to official. And that was i. Think an attempt to say look. We did our part of the job and it was up to say capital. Police are the members of the joint terrorism task force in washington. Dc to kind of put together. The security measures that were necessary in order to respond to the kind of violence threats and intelligence that they were that they were receiving. So i think this was part of what we've seen in the last week as a continuation of the fbi's attempt to say we did our job. Now the rest is up to you and then with regard to the attorney's office which michael sherwin was talking about. They want to say look. We are taking this seriously with regards to pursuing further charges. But take aways obviously is. We're not seeing the fbi director on stage not seeing briefings directly from the head of the fbi and from senior officials who might indicate to the rest of the country and to potential violent rioters. Who might come back to the capital that this is something that has gone to the highest highest levels of government that will not be tolerated. And i think that that is something that is also concerning some folks tonight. I mean it's a week after it happened six days and no i mean i don't know who runs the h s. Now chad wolf gone. Lord knows who's running that place. Fbi director chris. Wray the acting attorney. General jeffrey rosen image. Just it is shocking to me shocking. Inexcusable that we have not had a briefing. It's remarkable and national security officials who have spoken to have also said. Look you know one of the reasons why we might not be. Seeing them is because they might be afraid that they could get fired. You know in the week. That's left of this administration that speaking truth about this and the reasons why it was incited the realities of why these protesters came in and the capital would force them to lose their jobs and that you know take it at face value. Which is that. The president has never accepted his own officials. Speaking the truth about and and speaking In criticizing him anyway. So i think that's part of it.

A you can understand. Why right as we enter. Twenty twenty one at least in the short term. Not much will feel different from the past months. And if there's anything we've learned since mid march of two thousand twenty. It's the essential and irreplaceable role of flowers and plants for our survival. And that's why. My outlook is deeply connected to humankind's pursuit of nature. And how floral entrepreneurs like you cannons should tap into and enhance that. Through your efforts. I learned about the term biofuel. Iaea in october of two thousand and nineteen when i interviewed tom. Pract and sarah dakin of grateful gardeners.

He discussed the definition when i interviewed him. But here it is again a to. Miriam webster a hypothetical human tendency to interact or be closely associated with other forms of life in nature by affiliate. Well all you have to do is read the headlines of twenty twenty to see a collective shift toward nature plants the environment and yes flowers.

It went on to say the benefits of being outdoors for your physical. Mental wellbeing are well documented but in this corona virus. They may be immeasurable then. I saw forbes headline reading nature is good for your mental health. Sometimes i'm not sure what that means.

Applications and Impact of CRISPR/CAS9 in Bioprocessing
"Today. I'm joined by fanling. Wong director of cell line development and protein sciences and zane starkey wolf director of corporate development from wishy biologics. I'm excited to be speaking with both of you. Today about crisper cast nine technology and its possibilities in the discovery and development biopharmaceuticals. We will also conduct a deep dive on its potential impact on bioprocessing and bio manufacturing. Welcome fanling and zane to the podcast. Zinke randy glad to be here. Thank you brandy before we get too far and because of our audience is quite diverse with regards to their experiences in life sciences. Fenland could you please provide some background on. Crisper cast nine as molecular biology. Gene editing tool. Yeah sure so christmas. Nineteen action system is actually adapted from a natural procure arctic defense mechanism to bacteria to simplify. What could spec assistant can do is took leave the face she and i was. It has been incorporated into the bacteria routine on so that to keep the fate from reproducing. Crisper is actually akron stands for clusters servers regularly interspace. Shot had a dramatic repeats and kissed by the most well well-researched variant of the class outcasts nucleus. Which has been used within the gene editing function. So i think the research community have actually adapted this mechanism to revolutionize how we perform the genetic modifications Not only in pro arctic. But or so. You can arctic sales since the system was first published and zane i know from our previous conversations that you were saying that crisper casts has an intriguing origin. Would you be able to elaborate. Yes interesting research can be found on crisper that dates back to the late. Eighty s Other work has been conducted throughout the first decade of the two thousand however it wasn't until two thousand twelve that two pivotal research papers were published in the journal. Science one by jennifer down nov uc berkeley and manual shopping chair of the university of vienna and then another pianist by doctors cross unanimous and sickness at vilnius university. All demonstrating the use of bacterial. Crisper cast nine as simple programmable. Gene editing jewel. But i know that the story doesn't stop there does it no. It certainly does not in less than a year in two thousand thirteen. The labs of dr fung jong and will chong of the burden student. Mit dr george. Church's lab at harvard reported success in adapting. Crisper cast nine for genome editing in your area cells and both mouse and human cells. And i know that we could really spend an entire podcast. Just on the history of crisper so i wanted to stay focused on the technology here. There's been a lot of excitement since discovery about this molecular biology tool. Can you explain why. Sure the remarkable functionality of this tool is that it allows scientists to target specific locations within the genetic code of an organism to cut out or replace a segment of dna due to the high specificity and exactness of utility. The applications have far reaching potential. And it has already become a much to walks game changer. In many fields of life science because it enables efficient cost effective and precision gene. Editing that has a wide utility for development of biological therapeutics including so and gene therapy disease modeling diagnostics agriculture industrial biology and more. And this has me thinking just about alternatives to crisper casts altogether Are there other ways to edit genomes. And if so what makes a crisper cast so much better. Great question brandy many of the other gene editing systems utilize today such as zinc finger. Nicholas's talons the use of mega nick. Liaises or other by all vectors like a. Iv compared with christopher cast nine are in the end very complex and time intensive often requiring many more steps and thus are more costly as well also and this may be greatest benefit. Is that crisper chess. Nine as a low off target affects profile which again makes it an ideal gene. Editing tool justify along with that. I've read many Recent advances using crisper technologies. Could you elaborate a little bit on those. The advances are extensive and continuous. We speak one example includes crisper a crisper i which are techniques to up and down regulate gene expression using dead cast nine dead cast nine removed the nucleus capability of cast nine but still allows for the targeted binding to a double stranded. Dna sequence of interest using the highway. Specific guide are a that is one of the cornerstones of crisper genome editing. I'd like to add that another application. It's a using crisper for hamas directed repel or so called a the are so this technique in simple terms can repel a double stranded. Dna break which is very important for genus ability. But what does the crisper made. Sdr can do is that. It cannot only to repel a break. But or so crew. Eight the break and then replace it with a small mutation or as elijah sequences so this techniques have actually substantially opened ability or researchers to make gino added more quickly and more efficiently

"Even if ruby ridge waco and oklahoma city weren't about race there was overlap and white power activists seized on these events and use them for their own propaganda according to kathleen. Oklahoma city was the culmination of a process that began after the vietnam war. It showed how far people were willing to go to bring down the central government and even though it still stands as the largest act of homegrown terrorism. Ever in recent years we've seen smaller attacks in charleston in charlottesville and the leaderless resistance model. That louis beam was still alive and not in prison by the way promoted continues to pose a major threat the. Da chests just released a threat assessment report that says that not only does the white power movement pose the largest terrorist threat to the united states. Right the largest one that means much more than quote unquote antifa and the left but even more than radical islamist terror which i think people are quite willing to worry about. They not only think that white supremacist. Extremism represents the largest terrorist threat. But they also noted that twenty nineteen is the most fatal year for this. Since nineteen ninety-five this makes for an incredibly challenging law enforcement issue. One that continues to worry experts by kathleen balu almost every expert in the field. Feel more worried about this now than at any point before you know. I've been studying these groups since two thousand five. At that time. I mean it was not at all clear. We're we're going to have this mass public resurgence of this problem. And i certainly never imagined a moment when they would have a claim on even a accidental green light from a sitting president. These kinds of historical push factors are just completely overwhelming. And i think we should all be very worried about this. What we're seeing is a string of events. A rising tide of activity and one carried out by activists who are very deeply interconnected through social media. And who are pushed by a number of historical factors towards radicalization. So i think we have to listen to the people in surveillance agencies who are sending the red flag because these groups again are not fundamentally interested in the preservation of the united states and its democratic institutions. These groups are.

It wasn't just seen as a military loss. It was seen as a national embarrassment. It stands as the i lost war and people take that very deeply to heart. The nature of engagement is very different. It's a war not for territory but for this much more amorphous sense of victory. It's a war with a very difficult to measure outcomes. Many of the soldiers who fought in the war were drafted meaning. They had to fight. It was the last time the. Us instituted a draft. The war happened in difficult terrain vietnam sometimes in areas where there were lots the civilians and when soldiers returned home they weren't always welcomed as heroes and then on top of that there's all kinds of structures around how people are deployed that really threaten bonds of the unit and also create problems for people processing combat trauma or. Ptsd on the way home. So that's like the whole experience of the war that makes it a very traumatic event for a whole lot of people and that complicated experience of failure in vietnam birth the narrative of betrayal betrayal by the government because it failed to give the troops the support they needed to win the war and betrayal by the public who failed to properly encourage the war effort that narrative has been sort of mobilized as a way of appearing to be making a neutral statement but actually working to kind of obscure a bunch of kinds of critiques. People make up the war. You just don't turn it off. It wasn't my war. us we. I didn't ask you do to win. But somebody wouldn't let us win and this narrative of anger shame. Embarrassment and resentment was hammered home by hollywood films like apocalypse now and the original rambo movie first blood back to the world. Does all those max. At the airport killing all kinds of crap protests me when i started writing this book i wondered if what i would find was a rambo story about veterans. Who sort of can't turn off the violence of combat and so they keep doing that at home but to be clear. This is not just about veterans who come home and do violence. And in fact. But i'm talking about is a super tiny percentage of veterans as a whole what we see in the scholarship. Is that all of us. Are more available for violence in the aftermath of warfare. The humiliation of the vietnam war sank deep into the psyche of the american public and contributed to some people joining white power antigovernment groups. We know that the vietnam war was used effectively to recruit people and that the people in the in the movement doing that were making a claim that they believed they had been wronged they. They made a claim that they had been wronged. Therefore it showed that they needed to bring the war home as they said over and over again surges in klan membership and white power activity align more consistently with the aftermath of combat than they do with any other major historical factor. Just a few veterans can bring an enormous amount of escalation in violence because of the tactics and skills and access to weapons that they provide these groups. Do you promise them your everlasting. Hey contam- utter opposition until this country is read of them until america is taken back until they are all. The land are under the man. This is the voice of a man named luis being. He was the vietnam war veteran from texas and someone who had become a leader in the white power movement. Why would you it away to these tannock. Devil-worship child the less the homosexual. Back phone sodomizing washington. Louis beam served two tours as a huey helicopter governor in the vietnam war and wrote and spoke often about that experience is deeply traumatic and as kind of a rationale for continuing the violence vietnam in the united states so when he returned to texas louis beam got involved in klan activity Eventually affiliating his group with a national organization called the knights of the ku klux klan. Which was led at that time by david duke. He used the money from texas state. Veterans land board grant to buy a property and create a paramilitary training facility and then if found a community of local fishermen not that far away In the galveston bay area. Who were really really angry about the resettlement of vietnamese refugees in their region richer. My government work with them for over a year and a half begged him help the situation and do something about it and they wouldn't do it so i'm white american i went to the. Kkk is built to be taken out of the war destroyed. Beam train kkk members in paramilitary tactics. The used that knowledge to then harass and threaten the vietnamese refugees. Mr bean. the grand dragon of the texas fox clan has issued an ultimatum. And that is that. If the fishermen not out by the fifteenth of may date shrimping season opens he will take matters in his own hands fishing boats and a mobile home owned by members of the vietnamese fishing community for firebombed the community however wasn't just gonna take it. They fought back in court with the help of the southern poverty law center. They filed the suit against the knights of the kkk. Who beam was involved with at the time at the trial of video was presented of beam conducting military training at one of his camps. He said in the video utterly destroy everybody. Maximum damage maximum violence in the shortest period of time. They can only do one thing die. He's somebody who kind of came from the southern baptist and charismatic. Speaking tradition and part of why he rose in this movement was that he was very effective at rallying people.

"Just a few months ago in october the department of homeland security issued a report that said white supremacist. Groups are the most persistent and lethal threat to domestic security and that same month another report this time by the center for strategic and international studies found that forty one of the sixty one terrorist plots and attacks in the first eight months of twenty were connected to white supremacists. It's been nearly twenty years since nine eleven and during that time. Much of the media and government has directed our attention to the threat of radical islamist terrorism. Yet during that time it's been domestic terrorism from groups of armed mostly white american men. This pose the biggest threat. The reality is some of these. Groups are highly organized. They have paramilitary capabilities and they are part of a deeply interconnected movement. I'm running. I'm that fateh. I'm routine out of louis and on this episode of through line from npr.

I am a assistant professor of history at the university of chicago. He's also the author of a book that came out this year called bring the war home the white power movement and paramilitary america. What it is is a movement brought together around a common story of government betrayal in the vietnam war. This happened in the late nineteen seventies and the reason that it's important call it. White power is first of all. That's what these activists come in her book. Kathleen says that the post vietnam war years provided a launching point for new white supremacist narrative that could unite bunch of groups and activists that had not been able to get together before these included. People like clansmen neo nazis people who followed white supremacist theological beliefs. Kathleen says it was the birth of a new movement a movement that advocated for new kinds of tactics not just sort of the vigilante violence that clan groups had been operating with earlier in american history but instead in a a project of guerrilla warfare and revolution against the united states.

"That was wolves from a brand new released by jumping Janey. Never mind the blocks. Here's jump Janey. You're listening to the children's hour and we have with us on the line. John Oak Leaf. He is the field projects coordinator for the Mexican Wolf Program at the US Fish and Wildlife Service. Thank you so much for being with us. On the children's hour how many wolf reintroduction programs are there in the US and Canada right now? So I think of three four that are going ongoing or completed and so the active Wolf Reduction Program where you're actually putting wolves on the ground. There's the Mexican Wolf Program here in the southwest. There's a Red Wolf program which is in the South East on North Carolina area. And then there's Active reintroduction that's going on Isle Royale which is up in Michigan where they're trying to recolonize wolves on the island and then there's the famous rear induction programs that they aren't really putting wolves out any more at that the yellowstone and Idaho which I worked on a little while when we talk about these programs. How many wolves are we talking about? That are in these programs. I mean how many do you put into the wild and Wendy? You know that your success fall for the northern rockies and for the Mexican wolves we had recovery plans and so recovery plans to give you a road map to where when you're successful your actions so for the northern rockies. They called for ten breeding pairs in three populations scattered across the northern Rockies. Be and so they did releases for two years and then natural. Reproduction took over and that Cosmos the growth from there pretty quick reintroduction down here on the Mexican Wolf Project We're calling for three hundred twenty wolves over eight years and then the Mexican wolves were almost gone extinct from the wild so we had to start with a captive program captive breeding program that required to build up captive stock and then release them. And we're at about a hundred and sixty today And were mainly focused. Not on growing the population with our releases but improving the genetic stock. So there was seven animals when we got the last Mexican moles seven wolves in total in the whole world. That's all that was left of the Mexican wealth so this is back in the late seventies early eighties. At that time the Endangered Species Act just came nineteen seventy four and so the fish and Wildlife Service. Sanada trapper down to Mexico to trap some of the last remnant wolves and he got some wolves and there was a few samples in captivity. That were there that proved to be your Mexican wolves and so we had a founding stock seven and even the ones that he had caught down in Mexico. Those wolves disappeared and were largely gone by the early nineties. Every gone what happened from there is are zoos and our capital partners. Build up this population so they build up three hundred plus wolves today so that you could release wolves into the wild and still have the genetics staw in captivity where that wouldn't positive to go extinct by the risks in the wild we built from seven was a great success by our captive partners in the zoos and bill from seven to one hundred fifty in ninety eight we start releasing Mexican wolves since the while. Today were focused on the genetics. Getting diversity out there out in the wild and so what we do is we but young pops less than ten days old from captivity in two wild dance so we figured out where the wild will thin is. And put these young outs. And and wild dens it's called cross fostering and then those buffs are raised by their act and a raised like wild wolves and then they incorporate. This doesn't genetics into the population. How do you convince local ranchers and farmers that it's okay to have wolves be reintroduced because it seems to me like maybe those are some of the people who be the most resistant because they'd be worried that the wolves would may be killed or sheep or cows? And I I guess I don't try to convince them because wolves are a lot about how you see the world and so certain people stealing as as citizens of the of wilderness and and kind of showing than. It's a wild area in a wild place and they very much appreciate the how wolf in the wild and then other people they're more Utilitarian or out there on the landscape there actually working on that landscape and they make their living on that landscape and so those folks tend to be more concerned about the presence of wolves and they have to live with them and and there's economic impacts their business. So what I do try to do is work with the ranch. Our shared goal is none of us. Want depredations on live stuff. What do you mean depredations So when Wolves Jill livestock something that people own. It's considered a depredation. Something that person owns we're talking with John Oakley from the US Fish and Wildlife Service about wolves. He's the field projects coordinator for the Mexican Wolf Program. We're GONNA come right back and talk more with John Oak Leaf right after a break. You're listening to public radio.

"The other animals came back as well because they were eating all the elk and deer where they had many many of them because nobody else was eating them before and so they also started being more aware of the wolves and now started moving around more and so more vegetation started growing because they were eating everything which meant more songbirds came in and they will also driving away the coyotes so they were more bunnies and more other animals so the whole ecosystem changed in Yellowstone National Park. When the Wolf's came back and all the other animals came back as well so they are very very important a players in the ecosystem. One might say they weren't only in. North America they were also All over Europe in the Northern Hemisphere. And the coming back in certain areas to their old stomping grounds so to speak what other kinds of keystone predators are there. Do they all work in a similar way to wolves yes they work in similar ways to wolves and they're very important eating the old sake and week? Wa avalon's of a herd of deer and elk for example or taking out there little animals and evading diseases because where the Wolf Sargon for example there's more chronic wasting disease among the deer. What's a chronic wasting disease? It's a disease among deer when they are in one place together. See The wolves. They are keeping the herds of deer and elk moving because they always have to look over their shoulder and see if there's any wolf's around and he can't just hang around and they break up in little bands like for example the the females and does and the their offspring for example then never together in huge herds but humans often put them in enclosures or put them together and in huge herds for the hunters and a feeding them at in villa situations. When there aren't any wolf's around there is a lot disease because they're giving it to each other. It's kind of like right now. We have to stay away from each other to not pass on the virus to each other. It's the same with the an elk when there's too many of them and one of them is sick and the wolves not taking out the old sick and weak ones of a herd of deer elk. Then they'll pass it onto each other and a whole hurt is compromised by that. We have found that in New Mexico as well in northern New Mexico within L. Kurt for example. What can you do to stop this disease? The best way is to bring the walks back because they will. They're the ones that That can eat kill and deere for example. That is sick. They are the only ones because they walls that way. And when they were looking at wolf skills in yellowstone national.

They're all making their way across some rolling around in the snow though eight nine. Ten a grey one. I eleven twelve thirteen fourteen. Fifteen fifteen moles. There's more wow. After a busy morning of rushing around we finally found the right spot and everyone finally state still. There were probably twenty people in the group by now. Jeff made hot chocolate for everyone. In his winnebago. It really is a community. A lot of these people have been watching wolves together like this for decades. We were watching. What's called the junction Butte Pack? I was amazed how much rick seemed to know about. Every single wolf in the pack knows a lot about all the wolves in yellowstone and the wolves the came before them because he comes out like this and watches and takes notes for hours. At a time there's one wolf in particular that is fascinated him from the beginning. A small wolf ate wolf ate was one of the original fourteen brought. In during the reintroduction in Nineteen ninety-five he was brought in as a pup. Just a few months old and his whole family was put an acclamation pen about an acre in size and while they were still in that acclamation pen. Park Rangers began to notice that one of the wolves was much smaller than his brothers. The run he was chased around and teamed up on. He was always the last one to eat when the pack was released from acclimation pen wolf ate was about a year. Old everyone monitored this reintroduction very closely and Rick says that the park Rangers were kind of rooting for Wolf Ate. It wasn't going to have it easy and then one day. Rick was observing wolf. Ate Out with two of his brothers. They ran behind trees and when they reappeared. One of the brothers was carrying an elk calf in its jaws but right behind was grizzly bear chasing them. It was the Grizzly Bears L. CALF. The brothers had stolen from him in because it was the slowest. Wolf. He was last in line. Which meant that? The bear was gaining on him. And just as about the bail was to catch up with eight. He stopped and turned around and confronted the bear. He stood between the bear and two brothers and The bear was just several times. The size of the little will but the beer didn't know what to make of this guy and the beer just gave up just turned around and went the other direction but I was the only one that saw. What eight did that is? Two brothers had run off with the Cath and when he finally caught up with them. Not only did they not know that he had saved them from the bear but they didn't share the calf with. That was when I really begin to understand that there was way more than just being the runt of the litter rick watched as eight continued to get beaten up by his brothers pin down his food. Taken away any began to notice that eight was spending more and more time wandering around by himself. Meanwhile one of the other packs of wolves that have been brought from Canada the Roost Creek pack was expecting a litter of pups. The mother was known as Wolf. Nine and the father was called Wolf Ten. He was enormous in on the very day that she had her pops which should have been a time of great celebration and yellowstone. They would have been the first wolf pups born in Yellowstone. Sixty-nine years on that day the Father Wolf was illegally shot and killed. That meant that number nine was a single mother with no help and alliterative eight puffs. That's a very large litter. There was virtually no way that she could enable those popstar survive very young pups have no ability to keep themselves warm to regulate their temperature. So the mother Wolf has to be in the den with them so they can cuddle up next to her and absorb the her body warmth if she was leave the den for too long. When she got back they could've died of hypothermia. She was an impossible situation. She couldn't really leave the pops. They would likely die if she did. But if she didn't leave them she would have no food to support your milk. Production and they would die of malnutrition so normally the park. Service does not intervene in a situation with wild animals. But because a bad guy had killed the father wolf and that family represented forty three percent of the yellowstone will population at the time. They decided to make an exception. So the captured the mother in the POPs in the plan was to put them back in the Rose Creek Penn where she had originally gotten pregnant and keep him in there for six months and then released them they would be about the age of human children six seven years old something like that meaning that they still would know nothing of hunting so the mother. Wolf would still have plenty of problems but at least she would have a chance of keeping them alive if she was good enough hunter. Maybe they could survive. Here's what Rick Things probably happen. Next Wolf ate was spending most of his time wandering around alone trying to get away from his bully. Brothers it was easier being by himself. He'd likely heard the Rose Creek Wolf pups hallway and eventually got curious enough to go see what was going on. We think that one point came around and turn in the in the ravine and saw something that he had never seen before in life he saw the first two hops to come out of the den and the process of being released and for him every day of his life he was always the smallest wolf and so he had no conception that there was out there were smaller than he was so He ran over and befriended those pups so we played with them. Share some food and whether he realized it or not he was being watched by the mother Wolf. He wasn't the ideal candidate to be here. New Alpha male. He had a lot of things going against them including his his size and his inexperience in youth but he was acting benevolently to her pops and essentially she invited him into her family to be their new. Alpha male eight essentially adopt raise those pops like they were his own. So if you came along after there'd be no way that you could tell the difference between him being the adopted father and biological father so pretty much eight in in the course of day had gone from being this underappreciated run to the family to having his own family with a number of children he could forget about what had happened to him when he was growing up yes he was and day not only had wolf ate never seen wolves smaller than him but the wolf pups he was now raising as his own had never seen an adult male wolf before they didn't know eight with small one of the wolf pups eight was raising was called. Wolf. Twenty one and twenty one would grow up to be very big and very strong even bigger than his biological father but he learned everything about how to be from eight wreck says the two were inseparable. They perfected technique of hunting. Were there are very successful. The operate as a team kind of like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid and then they would come back to the Dan in their mother and the new POPs and bring food to them so wolves. A big male can swallow about twenty pounds and then when they come home. They can regurgitate that. They bring it up to the pops they can also carry me but it's more efficient to do it internally when the pups e either eight or twenty-one come in they have an instinct to run over to them and they will lick their muzzle and that triggers the regurgitation. And I say that because when a modern dog sees its human friend coming along the dog wants to lick the face of the of the human and that's a remnant of that behavior from their wild ancestors so that's what it really means. They want you to give you twenty pounds of neat that you just did it the restaurant. It wasn't long before. Twenty-one grew so big that he was much larger than eight. He was a better hunter. He was faster he was stronger but he was always willing to be subordinate to the wolf. That raised him. Twenty-one watched eight defend the packers territory against the Alpha male of another pack the Druid Wolves..

"In January of nineteen ninety five. Fourteen wolves were brought into the park. The first wolves to make their home in yellowstone in nearly seventy years.

We are grateful to Jeff. This was our first introduction to the way these wolf watchers in yellowstone. Help each other out. We formed a Caravan Rick in the front and Jeff.

This is the morning the sun is not up yet. But it's coming. This is what we call first light. Which is maybe about a half an hour before the official sunrise. So we want to be out here at first light because wolves are active most at this time and then at the corresponding time around sunset. So I'm just going to start scanning eastern West will be listening for how as well how likely I mean. How many days do you now still go out and look for wolves every day? And how many days out of seven do you see them overtime? Pro We bought ninety percent when those fourteen wolves were brought into the park from Canada. They were initially placed in acclamation pens. Because wolves have a homing instinct if they were let loose right off the bat brick says they just had north back to Canada.

"Now we know dogs and wolves have a lot in common women and that leads us to this question. Hi My name is Maya and I'm six and a half years old. My question is why do we have dogs as pets but not wolf's quaffs ourselves dogs in Fox's Fox are so dogs so why not have them as pets. My name is Leila. I live in Brussels Belgium and my question is how dogs evolved from wolves here to help us answer these. This question is bridget von Fault. She's an evolutionary biologist at Princeton University. Welcome Bridget Hi. Thank you for inviting me. Touted dogs evolved awesome Wolf's. This is a really complex change to go from a wild animal to being domestic dog that we have in in our lives and in in our homes so this process happened over thousands of years and really what happened is that people originally formed this relationship relationship miscommunication with wild wolves. We suspect that this had a lot to do with how they hunted. That early on as humans were still hunting and gathering food that way that there was this relationship and maybe communication with the local wolf pack where they were also doing the same hunting being and gathering a food resources. That transition took thousands of years. This was a really long process early. Dogs we're really rather what they were are. Wolves are living closer and closer to human settlements so some hypotheses say hey that these wolves were living closer to our trash dumps where we would put empty carcasses or any other food waste we had and eventually as he's wolves reliving closer and closer to people they had to be more tolerant of people's presence ultimately the idea. Is that these wild wolves were adjusting to human presence. And we're living in and among the villages so often dogs even early Leeann domestication were just living with people but not necessarily inside a house and being restrained on a leash or harness. Why can we have dogs pets? But Not Wolves as my original question. Wildlife are unpredictable. They're not tame they don't live even a house. It's hard to train them so most of the reasons why we shouldn't have a wolf as a pet is because it's for the health of the animal and and it's not easy to handle them through that domestication. We've turned these wolves into dogs that way. We actually have this little the animal that we are very closely bonded to and they rely very heavily upon us for everything from food to shelter in companionship. Chip how did this like one. Species of of wolves trenches shown many different breeds of dogs and like types of dogs. Just like is that like hume doing or is that natural. That is such a good question. this ends up being a combination of both both to give maybe a little example of the natural side of this. If you look at maybe a litter of puppies and they all come from the same mom and Dad. Sometimes some of the puppies might have brown for others might have little splashy colors. Another one might be white with bigger black patches on them but they all come from the same two parents so the natural part of all of this variation Shen dogs that we see is because every individual has a slightly different set of genes so now if we talk about how all people became involved in that if we imagine that we were a dog breeder and we wanted to maybe create a brand new type of dog and and we saw something interesting. One of the puppies was maybe this unique color that we'd never seen before we would really want us that dog when it grew up to have more puppies in hopes that it would have more like it and as we started doing that a lot we found that humans could create create lots of differences between animals from tiny little teacup dogs to these giant. You Know Great Danes. It's quite light incredible. Wow thank you so much for being here today. Brigitte thank you bye. Thank six by canines and people have a special no relationship. Wolves in particular are very important to many native American tribes wolves and humans are seen as brothers and sisters.

"Those older wolves have probably come across the other wolves before so they know the strategies they know what works what doesn't work they may not take place in in the actual dispute or the the disagreement the argument the fighting but but they're the ones that really guide the younger wolves on on how to how to act in how to conduct themselves it's it's really important and you know it's in today's culture we tend to marginalize our elders and when we really have so much to learn from them so a wolf howling at the moon is this archetypal image and you all film these and they don't just do it alone like they do it in unison which i think is interesting do they know like bothers no why wolves just how just howl together in unison oh gosh you know i i did all the sound recording and i like to say that wolves held for more reasons than we will ever know you know they hell when they when they're just happy when they feel good they'll hell after meal they'll held search for each other there's a thing called a pet apac rally where generally the alpha will start helling and then all the other wolves will come in and it's his big kind of jazzy so full hysterical hal and and then just all of a sudden it'll it'll start break into play and then it'll die off and so it you know if it really serves a huge purpose wolves will also hell by themselves kind of we find like to check in on each other in the middle of the night you might get one wilted it'll hal and almost like you saying hey i'm here i'm fine in another willful hal off in the distance like okay i'm over here so it's it's pretty spectacular but they're they're array of communication is so buried that we've got hal's growls winds barks these sounds that i like to call chewbacca sounds because it sounds actually like the the stars.

"That was the reason we approached the project that we we did okay so you know i'm jamie just talked about the social lives of wolves wolves are famous for their social hierarchies right there's an alpha wolf abed wolf bullet liz i think there's a lot of misconceptions about how wolf hierarchies work what do you think are what do you think are the main misconceptions about with social hierarchies that people might have i think one of the biggest misconceptions is the term alpha and alpha seems to be falling out of favor with a lot of people but we still use it to describe you know the leader of the pack the alpha is is generally the the father of the pack the alpha male and female or are the parents of the pack generally and so they would be you know the the parents in your own family and they're the ones that really determine how the day to day operations of the family works and i think a lot of people have this idea oh the alpha you must be this tough strong aggressive we use it in a very negative way nowadays were really the alpha are alpha was very benevolent leader he led with kindness he was a very caring leader and father of the pack and it it really showed us that there's more to being an alpha than just strength that really they they take care of the family they they decide who's going to eat i in last it's it's a very sensitive caring thing a another interesting point they've been discovering actually in yellowstone since the wolf reintroduction is that it was always thought that must be the alpha male that leads the pack there have been sightings where people have been watching the wolves the alpha male will get up and stretch and get ready to go somewhere and the rest of the pack doesn't pay attention but if the alpha female gets up everyone stands to attention they want they know something's going on.

"Jim and jamie dutcher welcome to the show thank you so much for having us brett thank you very much so youtube recently published a book the wisdom of wolves and this is based on a project you all did back in the nineties you filmed from nine hundred ninety one to nineteen ninetysix a pack of wolves and it's called the saw tooth pack let's start for the background of that like what was the impetus behind the project of filming a pack of wolves for such a long time to well i've been filmmaker that specializes in animals that you just don't get to see in the wild mountain lions beavers undersea subjects and after finishing a successful film on mount lions we put together a puzzle with abc television to do a special on wolves and but it just can't go out and find apples and film them in a meaningful way you can but they're so far away there so intelligent that they change their behavior and run away we wanted to be able to get into their lives into their social lives so we set this project up with puppies bottled feed them from the moment they opened their eyes and camped with them for six years afterwards but to regain their trust by being with him from the moment they realize they were here in this planet and where did you all get the wolf pups from the initial thoughts while there was a woman up in montana that inherited or to just took over a pack of wolves that was they were being experimented with in they weren't alaska and she she said if you give me the paca i'll take care of them please don't euthanize them they will the project was finished in they were going to put them all to sleep so she had also seen the mountain lion they'll and thought we could.
