    Japans 4 Most Powerful World War II Battleships
    Posted on Wednesday, May 22 @ 00:00:08 PDT (5 reads)
    College Guide Japans 4 most powerful world war ii battleships the pacific theater of world war ii highlighted the importance of naval power, with japan fielding several notable battleships before the dominance of aircraft carriers. Among japan’s world war ii battleships, four stand out. The pacific theater of world war ii was a [high-stakes](https://nationalinterest.Org/blog/buzz/china-vs-japan-war-senkaku-islands-why-it-could-happen-210860) naval engagement notable for its island-hopping and amphibious nature. Both belligerents, imperial japan and the united states, fielded capable and varied vessels. And while the [aircraft carrier](https://nationalinterest.Org/blog/buzz/japan-next-aircraft-carrier-superpower-210500) emerged from the conflict as the hallmark naval vessel of the postwar era, the conflict began with the battleship as the preeminent naval vessel. Let’s take a closer look at the battleships on the losing side and select the top four of [japan’s](https://nationalinterest.Org/blog/buzz/japan-could-join-aukus-program-209848) eight world war ii battleships. Nagato the nagato was laid down in 1917 and completed in 1920—and represented the super-dreadnought style that was so common in the early twentieth century. Named for the japanese province of nagato, the nagato battleship was fairly large, measuring 708 feet long with a 95-foot beam. The nagato was outfitted with firepower to match her size, boasting eight 16-inch guns that could fire two rounds per minute at a range in excess of 40,00 yards. One of the more distinctive features of the nagato was the incorporation of aircraft, which could operate at different times from either a catapult or a boom that lowered the floatplanes into the water. Of course, aircraft are more commonly associated with the aircraft carrier (naturally), but the nagato operated planes like the mitsubishi f1m, kawanishi e7k, and nakajima e4n2. The [nagato](https://warshipprojects.Com/2023/03/07/development-of-the-nagato-class/) survived world war ii, but shortly thereafter, was selected as a target ship for operation crossroads—an american test of nuclear weapons at bikini atoll. An underwater nuclear explosion caused nagato to list, eventually capsize, and sink. Today, nagato is a famed wreck site for scuba divers. Yamato like the nagato, the yamato was named after a japanese province. And while the nagato was moderately large and heavily armed, the [yamato](https://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=udrzcze_de0) was an absolute behemoth. In fact, the yamato is the largest battleship ever built. Consider the yamato’s hulking specs: 862 feet long; 127-foot beam, 36-foot draft; 70,500-ton displacement; twelve boilers; and a crew of 3,233 sailors. The yamato was pushing the size of a modern supercarrier, yet was built in 1937, just in time for imperial japan’s push to dominate the indo-pacific. The yamato was not only the largest battleship ever constructed, it was also the most heavily armed with a wide variety of weapons, including 18-inch guns; 6-inch guns; 5-inch dp guns; 1-inch aa guns; and anti-aircraft machine guns. The yamato was brimming with weaponry. Still, the massive vessel was sinkable, going down during operation ten-go in 1945, the victim of american planes. Ise the [ise](https://naval-encyclopedia.Com/ww2/japan/ise-class-battleships.Php) was modest in size relative to the nagato and yamato, measuring just 683 feet and displacing just 37,000 tons. The ise was laid down in 1915, making her somewhat dated by the time imperial japan began its aggressive outward expansion in the 1930s. The japanese, recognizing the ise’s shortcomings, retrofitted her in the 1930s, adding a pagoda-style mast and torpedo bulges to improve the vessel’s survivability in hostile waters. When the japanese lost four aircraft carriers at the battle of midway, the ise was converted into a makeshift aircraft carrier. Carrying yokosuka d4y suisei dive bombers and aichi e16a reconnaissance planes, the ise did successfully launch aircraft during world war ii. Yet, like the aircraft carriers she was converted to replace, ise was sunk in an air attack. After the war, ise was scrapped where she was ruined, near kure. Kongo the interesting part about the kongo is she was not japanese in origin. Rather, british engineer george thurston built the kongo—in britain. The arrangement seems odd now, knowing how the kongo was used, against the allied interest of which the british were so foundational. But in 1911, when the kongo was ordered and laid down, the british had no reservations about making a battleship for the japanese navy. While other japanese battleships of the world war ii era were renowned for their size and/or firepower, the [kongo](https://www.Usni.Org/magazines/proceedings/1948/november/kongos-world-war-ii) was known for her speed. Capable of reaching 30 knots, the kongo relied on steam turbines for propulsion. Despite the kongo’s speed, and despite the kongo’s british design, she fell to american torpedoes about 55 miles northwest of keelung, taiwan.

    ‘Plan B’ $750B student debt transfer to taxpayers draws bicameral rejection
    Posted on Wednesday, May 22 @ 00:00:08 PDT (5 reads)
    College Guide (the center square) – transferring student debt to taxpayers in a “plan b” costing $750 billion has drawn a bicameral rejection letter authored by a north carolina congresswoman and louisiana senator and sent to the head of the department of education. signed by 130 republican members of congress, secretary miguel cardona is told the latest rule-making proposal should be withdrawn and in no way could be the intent of the 1965 federal loan insurance program or its 2008 reauthorization. The letter led by u.S. Rep. Virginia foxx, r-n.C., And sen. Bill cassidy, r-la., Said the education department is making an even broader attempt to send the debt of 28 million borrowers, some with annual income exceeding $300,000, to taxpayers in a “backdoor attempt to enact ‘free’ college.” in part, the letter reads , “the supreme court has made it abundantly clear that there is zero authority to write-off federal student loans en masse last june when the department’s ‘plan a’ was ruled unconstitutional.” foxx, seeking her 11th two-year term in november, is chairwoman of the committee on education and the workforce in the house of representatives. Cassidy, a gastroenterologist before entering politics, is ranking member of the committee on health, education, labor and pensions in the senate. the department of education on april 17 filed a notice of proposed rule making , also known as nprm, describing “targeted relief.” The letter reads in part, “the department notes that the long-anticipated regulation to ‘cancel’ loans for borrowers facing ‘hardship’ – a broad term defined under the nprm to grant the department full authority to cancel any loan it pleases – is still forthcoming. According to budget experts, those additional changes would bring the total cost of the department’s ‘plan b’ to nearly $750 billion, at almost double the cost of ‘plan a.’” the letter further criticized cardona and his department for putting “resources to draft this proposal to benefit those who already were able to attend college” while “simultaneously” failing to “competently implement the free application for federal student aid.” Fafsa helps needy prospective college applicants and their families afford higher education. “we already know,” the letter says, “as of march 29, fafsa completion for seniors in high school is down 40%. Those who do not file will likely not attend college next year and maybe never will.” thom tillis and ted budd, north carolina’s two republican u.S. Senators, were among the signers. In addition to foxx, the other house members from north carolina signing were reps. Richard hudson and chuck edwards.

    UConn basketball’s Donovan Clingan reveals Nikola Jokic, other NBA inspirations
    Posted on Wednesday, May 22 @ 00:00:08 PDT (7 reads)
    College Guide The [nba draft](/tag/nba-draft) is coming up soon as it will take place on june 26th and 27th. This is a big time for draft prospects as they just wrapped up the combine, and they are going to find out where they are headed soon. One player that should hear his name called pretty early in the nba draft is [uconn basketball](/ncaa-basketball/uconn-basketball) star donovan clingan. Clingan has been the big man for the huskies for the past two seasons, and he is now ready to go to the league. donovan clingan and the uconn basketball team have obviously had a lot of success the past two years as they have won the last two national championships, and clingan is now ready to move on to the nba. He is expected to be an early first round pick, and that came as a bit of a surprise to people because of his play-style. clingan is a 7?2? Big, but his play-style is different than zach edeys for example. Edey was the best player in college basketball last year, and these two played the same position. However, clingan is going to be drafted way before edey. Clingan does have a lot of similarities in his play-style to traditional big men, but his athleticism and ability to move up and the down the court with speed does set him apart a bit. still, when clingan was asked about the players in the nba that he looks up to, he listed three guys that are traditional bigs excelling in the league. “ i enjoy watching rudy gobert, joel embiid, nikola jokic, and all those traditional big men that are having an impact on the game and helping their team win,” clingan said, according to an article from hoops hype. those guys have some abilities in their game that help them stand out among other bigs, and clingan is hoping that he will be able to find that aspect of his game that helps him flourish in the nba as well. donovan clingan was a beast in college donovan clingan had a great career with the uconn basketball team. Obviously, the huskies won two national titles when clingan was there, and he was a big reason why they were able to win those championships. clingan didnt play as much during his freshman season, but he was still a big contributor for the huskies. He played in 39 games and averaged a little over 13 minutes per game. He ended up averaging 6.9 ppg, 1.8 bpg and 5.6 rpg. during his sophomore season, clingan started to play more, and he ended up being a dominant force for uconn. He averaged over 22 minutes per game last season, and he finished the year averaging 13 ppg, 2.5 bpg and 7.4 rpg. Standing at over seven feet tall, clingan was extremely difficult for other teams to deal with. clingans uconn basketball career is now over, and he is taking the next step in his career. He is in the conversation to be the top pick in the nba draft, but regardless, he isnt going to have to wait very long to hear his name called.

    Can’t Make This Up… James Comey Warns MSNBC Cranks that Trump Will
    Posted on Wednesday, May 22 @ 00:00:08 PDT (6 reads)
    College Guide We support our publishers and content creators. You can view this story on their website by [clicking here](https://www.Thegatewaypundit.Com/2024/05/cant-make-this-up-james-comey-warns-msnbc/?Utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=cant-make-this-up-james-comey-warns-msnbc). Dirty james comey warned the msnbc audience about the dangers of a second donald trump presidency. James comey will go down in history as the man who, along with chris wray, the current director, turned the fbi into a corrupt stasi-like entity used to target innocent americans, catholics, and their political opposition. Comey led the efforts to set up president trump in the mueller collusion hoax knowing it was all a lie from its very beginning. Comey, obama, top doj officials, the fbi and top democrats used this lie in their attempt to remove president trump from office. This goes down as one of the greatest criminal acts of sabotage in american history. On tuesday james comey told the cranks on morning joe that he fears in a second term, president trump will “target his enemies” – much like james comey did in trump’s first term. You really can’t make this up – the criminal official who led efforts to impeach and jail donald trump in his first term is worried trump will target his political enemies in his second term. Talk about projection! James comey: “he is a threat to the rule of law in america. To me, that’s what this election is about. It’s not about policy differences, it’s about what kind of country are we going to be. If he has the ability, smarter than he was last time to use the power of the department of justice and the fbi to target his enemies especially the rule of law in america will change in a way that we haven’t seen in our lifetime.” This is literally what the democrats are doing to trump today! The rubes on msnbc all nodded in agreement. James comey on morning joe asserts trump is a ‘threat’ to the rule of law that will target his political enemies: “he is a threat to the rule of law in america. If he has the ability, smarter than he was last time, to use the power of the doj and the fbi to target his enemies.”… [Pic.Twitter.Com/48jkbozqic] — eric abbenante (@ericabbenante) [may 21, 2024] these same self-deceiving hacks that support the 91 junk indictments in the ongoing lawfare suits against president trump. Here is a reminder of [more than 100 actions](https://www.Thegatewaypundit.Com/2019/03/the-list-more-than-100-times-the-fbi-doj-and-or-mueller-gang-deviated-from-standard-practice-or-committed-crimes-in-effort-to-exonerate-hilary-and-indict-trump/) the deep state fbi and doj took that were either outside of policy and/or were corrupt and/or were criminal surrounding the 2016 presidential election and exoneration of hillary clinton and the setup/attempts to remove donald trump from office. Via [joe hoft.](Https://joehoft.Com/) - in 2008, a questionable person on john mccain’s presidential campaign caught the attention of fbi counterintelligence, and the fbi privately approached mccain. That questionable person was quietly removed from team mccain. The trump campaign was never afforded this same courtesy [[source]](https://www.Redstate.Com/streiff/2018/05/18/crossfire-hurricane-story-paints-ugly-picture-fbi-department-justice/). - Paul manafort interviewed with the fbi twice before he joined the trump campaign [[source]](https://www.Businessinsider.Com/mueller-manafort-court-documents-takeaways-2018-4/)(if manafort was guilty of anything, he was guilty during the time period he served as mccain’s campaign manager, not trump’s campaign manager, and if manafort was guilty of anything, why did it take ten years for the fbi to take action against manafort?) And why didn’t the fbi warn trump about manafort if they had concerns? - Somehow every clear security breach in the clinton camp was no big deal, while every fourth-hand contact with someone who could possibly be linked to russia was evidence that donald trump was secretly serving as a russian agent [ [source](https://www.Foxnews.Com/opinion/mark-penn-fbi-trump-russia-investigation-shows-deep-state-was-worse-than-we-thought)]. - Comey made no public show of his announcement on the oct. 28, 2016, decision to reopen the clinton email investigation. Instead, comey quietly sent a terse and private letter to the chairs and the ranking members of the oversight committees on the hill, informing them, vaguely, that the fbi was taking additional steps in the clinton email investigation, unlike the public announcement about the counterintelligence investigation of the trump campaign [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - Fiveeyes has a standing agreement to not spy on each other’s citizens without a warrant, and yet, the fbi and the cia frequently accepted both official and unofficial intelligence on members of the trump campaign, from not only fiveeyes but other countries as well [ [source](https://www.Theguardian.Com/world/2013/nov/20/us-uk-secret-deal-surveillance-personal-data)]. - Additionally with regard to fiveeyes, not using normal intelligence channels for a major counterintelligence investigation and, instead, relying on political channels is another deviation from the standard practice, such as in the instance of alexander downer relaying information to the state department who then passed it on to the fbi [ [source](https://omny.Fm/shows/the-dan-bongino-show/ep-893-what-are-they-hiding#description)]. - Andrew mccabe, the former deputy director of the fbi, told house lawmakers during a closed-door interview in late 2017 that other than the probe into hillary clinton’s unauthorized use of a private email server, he was not aware of any instance in which an fbi exoneration statement was drafted months prior to the conclusion of an investigation as was done (twice) in the case of the midyear investigation [ [source](https://www.Theepochtimes.Com/exclusive-mccabe-told-congress-that-comeys-draft-exoneration-of-clinton-was-unprecedented_2763927.Html)]. - Right before the election, the doj also inexplicably dropped all charges against marc turi in the benghazi legal matter that had lasted for five years. Some saw it as a way to protect clinton [ [source](https://theconservativetreehouse.Com/2018/12/25/the-fbi-and-doj-were-working-to-protect-hillary-clinton-a-lot-longer-than-generally-discussed/#more-158158)]. - Comey sidestepped direct questions over whether clinton’s carelessness should disqualify her from future access to classified information but indicated that any government employee who had similarly handled secret government information would be subject to a rigorous security review to determine “suitability” [ [source](https://www.Usatoday.Com/story/news/politics/2016/07/07/james-comey-house-committee-clinton-emails-chaffetz/86793176/)]. - Ig report: nobody was listed as a subject of this [clinton email] investigation at any point in time (so neither hillary nor her top aides were formally under investigation by fbi at any time in 2015-2016, but the agents handling the issue thought it was a criminal action) [[source]](https://twitter.Com/paulsperry_/status/1009102551814373376). - There was no investigation regarding bill clinton’s famously clandestine meeting with the head of the department of justice, loretta lynch, on a private plane in phoenix just days before the fbi announced its decision to exonerate clinton [ [source](https://themarketswork.Com/2016/10/24/comeys-crimes/)]. - Lindsey graham recently argued, in the washington post, “you can be an fbi informant. You can be a political operative. But you can’t be both, particularly at the same time.” (The fbi knew of steele’s politics but continued to engage him). - A deviation from the standard practice is to start an investigation without a crime. Under fbi and justice department guidelines for opening a full investigation, agents have to first establish an “articulable factual basis,” which means facts must be specified and verified. And investigators have to have a “reasonable suspicion,” as opposed to mere speculation, that a suspect committed a crime. In a may 19, 2017, text message to mccabe’s counsel lisa page, strzok [remarked](https://www.Foxnews.Com/politics/fbis-strzok-allegedly-dismissed-mueller-probe-no-big-there-there), “my gut sense and concern is there’s no big there, there” regarding collusion. Page also [admitted](https://www.Foxnews.Com/politics/lisa-page-testimony-collusion-still-unproven-by-time-of-muellers-special-counsel-appointment)during a private 2018 congressional interview that when mccabe opened the probes, “we still couldn’t answer the question [of whether trump conspired with the kremlin]. … It still existed in the scope of possibility that there would be literally nothing” to connect trump with russia [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2019/03/02/mccabe_of_fbi_re-engaged_with_fired_dossier_author_after_comey_firing.Html)]. - Investigators are tasked with “detecting and interrupting criminal activities at their early stages, and preventing crimes from occurring in the first place,” which is much more preferable than “allowing criminal plots to come to fruition.” According to the diog, assessments and investigations should be proactive to stop crimes or “national security-threatening activities.” In other words, law enforcement can’t just sit back and eat popcorn while they watch subjects weave their way toward a crime so they can catch them in the act. The purpose of law enforcement is to actively stop danger in its tracks, not urge it on with passive observation (this occurred not only during the russian hacking incidents but also with the elements of the trump campaign that the fbi/obama admin declared to be troubling) [ [source](https://bwcentral.Org/2018/06/the-real-reason-why-the-fbi-had-a-spy-in-the-trump-campaign/)]. - The fbi’s miss of the russian influence operation against the 2016 election, which went largely undetected for more than two years (the fbi had the chance to kill this russian intrusion years before it reached crisis point in the election). Mueller’s russia probe has found that moscow’s operation against the 2016 election first got underway in 2014, but the fbi failed to grasp the scope and danger of what was unfolding [ [source](http://time.Com/5264153/the-fbi-is-in-crisis-and-america-is-paying-the-price/)]. The bureau missed the significance of the damaging 2015 hack of the dnc database [ [source](http://time.Com/5264153/the-fbi-is-in-crisis-and-america-is-paying-the-price/)]. - Instead of opening an investigation as procedure demands, comey usurped the role of loretta lynch, further compounding the first error) comey would later say he broke with normal procedures whereby the fbi collects evidence and the department of justice decides whether to bring charges, because he believed attorney general loretta lynch had engaged in actions that raised doubts about her credibility, including secretly meeting with clinton’s husband, the former president, just days before the fbi interviewed her [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - Peter strzok forwarded a draft of the warrant to his personal email account in violation of fbi policy and further violated department policy by editing the warrant affidavit on his home email account, bypassing the fbi system for recording such government business. He also began drafting a second exoneration statement before conducting the search [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - Two fbi investigators were in a “relationship” while they were working on the clinton email investigation and later were married [ [source](https://gellerreport.Com/2018/06/fbi-hillary-clinton-president.Html/)]. - Peter strzok/lisa page were having an affair in the middle of a counterintelligence probe and later became part of the special counsel mueller probe, which in and of itself is a compromise [ [source](https://thehill.Com/opinion/white-house/420408-comeys-confession-dossier-not-verified-before-or-after-fisa-warrant?Amp)]. - Initially, the fbi and department of justice claimed [bruce ohr] had no involvement in the probe, despite his marriage to a fusion gps contractor. Then they claimed his role was unique and was unknown by others in the department [ [source](http://thefederalist.Com/2019/01/17/top-mueller-officials-coordinated-with-fusion-gps-spouse-in-2016/)]. - The obama administration pulled the levers of every available tool of the state (cia, fbi, nsa, fisa etc.) To not only illegally surveil the campaign of their political opponents but to usurp and obstruct mr. Trump’s every effort even after assuming the office of the presidency [ [source](https://www.Americanthinker.Com/articles/2018/08/the_deep_state_state_vs_the_american_people.Html)]. - The fisa court continued to authorize fisa warrants on the trump campaign members after finding that the obama admin had used the fisa process to punish political foes [ [source](https://www.Ignet.Gov/sites/default/files/files/olc%20ig%20act%20opinion%20-%207-20-15%20.Pdf)]. - James clapper limited the ic report for review to only 3 agencies rather than send the report out to all 17 agencies for review. This way he was able to control the outcome of the investigation [[source]](https://www.Thegatewaypundit.Com/2018/05/brennan-in-hot-water-two-top-officials-contradict-ex-cia-directors-denial-of-reliance-on-dossier/). - The fbi failed to farm out the classified information found on the unsecured laptop to other intelligence agencies for review as part of a national security damage assessment — even though horowitz confirmed that clinton’s illegal email activity, in a major security breach, gave “foreign actors” access to unknowable quantities of classified material and despite the fact that an internal fbi review did find that the server was compromised by unauthorized individuals [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - 2016-08-02 peter strzok, while still in london, submits a report on his interview of uk intelligence officials “summarizing report was a “break in diplomatic protocol.” The following text message from peter strzok-lisa page is referring to this report. This information in this report “helped provide the foundation” for the case – instead of sparked the case – as has been claimed” [ [source](http://www.Breitbart.Com/big-government/2018/05/16/leakers-to-nyt-confirm-fbi-ran-spy-operation-against-trump-campaign/)]. - Comey’s fbi did not pursue “intent” with mrs. Clinton during the late hour interview. While this may not sound all that important, simple acceptance of the explanation that the server was purely for personal convenience allowed for mrs. Clinton not to be charged with evading federal statutes. Indeed, lack of intent was one of the primary excuses comey used in his decision to declare her cleared [ [source](https://themarketswork.Com/2016/10/24/comeys-crimes/)]. However, in the case of dr. John m. Deutch (similar case to clinton’s), “intent” was never a factor of that investigation [ [source](https://fas.Org/sgp/othergov/ig_deutch.Html)]. - “An unclassified email system is no place for classified information,” he [comey] added. “The root of the problem is people using personal email systems to conduct business that is classified’’ while fbi agents in charge of the clinton email investigation violated these same policies [ [source](https://www.Dailywire.Com/news/26408/report-fbi-agents-used-private-devices-while-ryan-saavedra)]. - During the low-level assessment stage (before the counterintelligence investigation is formally opened), there can be no use of a confidential human source or undercover agent (such as was done in the case of stefan halper). It’s strictly forbidden. Only public records, information from other departments, voluntary interviews, etc., Can be used at this stage [ [source](https://bwcentral.Org/2018/06/the-real-reason-why-the-fbi-had-a-spy-in-the-trump-campaign/)]. Roger stone and mike caputo say they believe they were the targets of a setup by u.S. Law enforcement officials hostile to trump….They cite records showing that the man who approached stone is actually a russian national who has claimed to work as an fbi informant, which, if true, was before an official investigation had commenced, a deviation from standard practice [ [source](https://twitter.Com/paulsperry_/status/1008746855684100096)]. - The doj knew that political actors were involved in the creation and use of the steele dossier at the time of initial fisa application [ [source](https://themarketswork.Com/2018/02/02/the-house-memo-an-examination-some-implications/)]. - Peter kadzik requested that the subject of his investigation employ his son and then shared classified case information with the representative of the same subject (john podesta) and attended intimate dinner parties with that representative as well. Additionally, records indicate kadzik and podesta were close friends in college [ [source](http://www.Foxnews.Com/politics/2018/06/14/ig-report-doj-official-sought-clinton-campaign-job-for-son-then-shared-case-info-with-podesta.Html)]. Peter kadzik refuses to confirm or deny whether the doj is investigating clinton [ [source](https://www.Zerohedge.Com/news/2016-11-02/more-collusion-between-clinton-campaign-and-doj-kadzik-provides-heads-podesta)]. - Joe biden (whom the doj and fbi reported to) and his son enter into a financial relationship with china who was concurrently under investigation for hacking at the time [ [source](http://thegatewaypundit.Com/2018/03/dr-gorka-stunned-biden-china-deal-potentially-one-biggest-pay-play-scandals-outside-uranium-one/)]. - The fbi wasn’t adequately investigating “high-risk” employees who failed polygraph tests (but, in fact, putting them in charge of high-profile investigations, like peter strzok who failed his poly). In one instance, an fbi it specialist with top-secret security clearance failed four polygraph tests and admitted to having created a fictitious facebook account to communicate with a foreign national but received no disciplinary action for that [ [source](http://time.Com/5264153/the-fbi-is-in-crisis-and-america-is-paying-the-price/)]. And the fbi agents in charge of investigating the polygraph results, like andrew castor, had questionable pasts all their own [ [source](https://www.Executivegov.Com/2013/10/andrew-mccabe-appointed-fbi-natl-security-branch-lead/)]. - The threat assessment stage of the fbi’s investigation in 2016 likely occurred sometime in late winter/early spring because former attorney general loretta lynch testified that she met with comey about the intelligence “matter” during this period. At this early stage, she and comey decided not to tell the trump campaign about possible national security threats regarding his campaign. When the topic was revisited in late spring, they again decided to say nothing. This choice to remain silent was a deviation from established guidelines (at the same time, however, lynch was warning the trump admin about michael flynn) [ [source](https://bwcentral.Org/2018/06/the-real-reason-why-the-fbi-had-a-spy-in-the-trump-campaign/)]. - The obama administration took extraordinary measures to withhold information from congress about its trump-russia probe — such as not briefing the bipartisan leaders of the both chambers and their intelligence committees, the “gang of eight” [ [source](https://www.Nationalreview.Com/2018/05/strzok-page-texts-trump-russia-investigation-origins/)]. - Andrew mccabe entered into a financial relationship with the dnc/terry mcauliffe, a close friend and confidante of hillary clinton, who was also the subject of the investigation that mccabe was overseeing. Then the dnc endorsed mccabe’s wife’s political candidacy. Mccabe later recuses himself from the investigation into hillary clinton but then maintains some amount of control over the investigation after the recusal [ [source](https://www.Judicialwatch.Org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-new-fbi-records-show-fbi-leaderships-conflicts-interest-discussions-clinton-email-investigation/)]. - Andrew mccabe lied to the bureau’s internal investigations branch to cover up a leak he orchestrated about clinton’s family foundation less than two weeks before the election and had lied for months about it [ [source](http://time.Com/5264153/the-fbi-is-in-crisis-and-america-is-paying-the-price/)]. - Not following the woods procedure: trisha anderson admitted that the page fisa process was handled outside of normal procedures, receiving early approvals from leadership officials at both the fbi and doj—including deputy fbi director andrew mccabe and deputy attorney general sally yates—prior to the document reaching her desk [ [source](https://www.Theepochtimes.Com/senior-fbi-lawyer-did-not-read-carter-page-fisa-before-signing-off-on-it_2793879.Html)]. - The fbi interviewed carter page in march of 2016 about his russian ties before his being hired by team trump. Two months later, comey is briefing the nsc about his concerns about carter page. Nothing of any note happened in those intervening months to cause a rise of concerns, so whatever concerns comey had comey had them before page was hired on as an adviser. It was a deviation from the standard practice for comey to not have warned trump about page. Comey warns obama instead who also takes no steps to warn trump either. Comey had the opportunity to prevent someone he believed to be a russian spy from infiltrating the trump campaign and failed to do so [[source]](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/06/07/carter_page_russian_spy__or_fbi_honor_scout.Html). - “The attorney general seemed to be directing me to align with the clinton campaign strategy. Her ‘just do it’ response to my question indicated that she had no legal or procedural justification for her request, at least not one grounded in our practices or traditions. Otherwise, i assume, she would have said so,” comey later recounted in his memoir, a higher loyalty: truth, lies, and leadership [ [source](https://www.Washingtonexaminer.Com/news/fired-fbi-deputy-director-andrew-mccabe-rips-loretta-lynch-sally-yates-in-new-memoir)]. - Comey also said he had seen material that he thought might cast “serious doubt” about lynch’s independence [ [source](https://www.Washingtonexaminer.Com/news/fired-fbi-deputy-director-andrew-mccabe-rips-loretta-lynch-sally-yates-in-new-memoir)]. - Later, though comey repeatedly told president trump he was not a suspect, he gave house testimony patently geared to lead the public and the media to believe trump was a suspect – which is exactly how the media reported it. In so doing, the fbi (and the obama holdovers in the justice department who authorized comey’s testimony) violated doj rules about publicly confirming the existence of an investigation, and publicly identifying a subject of an investigation: the trump campaign, which comey publicly announced was suspected of “coordinating” in the kremlin’s widely reported cyber-espionage interference in the 2016 campaign [[source]](https://www.Foxnews.Com/opinion/andrew-mccarthy-fbi-russia-investigation-was-always-about-trump). - Comey’s unprecedented leaking of classified material to the press and then denying it [ [source](https://www.Google.Com/url?Q=https%3a%2f%2fthehill.Com%2fopinion%2fwhite-house%2f420408-comeys-confession-dossier-not-verified-before-or-after-fisa-warrant%3famp&sa=d&sntz=1&usg=afqjcnfkdcyhy7xug8iwajc2zservqz8rg)]. - Comey sent fbi agents to question general michael flynn about perfectly legal conversations they already had transcripts of, without following white house protocol, in a deliberate effort to entrap him [ [source](https://www.Foxnews.Com/opinion/mark-penn-fbi-trump-russia-investigation-shows-deep-state-was-worse-than-we-thought)]. - Unprecedented leaking to the press: 13 different individuals at the fbi were feeding a journalist information [[source]](https://www.Thegatewaypundit.Com/2018/09/report-thirteen-different-deep-state-fbi-agents-fed-information-to-one-liberal-reporter-video/).

It is a deviation from the standard practice for law enforcement agencies to give up/share their assets. Furthermore, the cia is prohibited from spying on american citizens. Was this transfer enabled to bypass this prohibition? [ [Source](https://disobedientmedia.Com/2018/08/evolution-of-the-russian-collusion-narrative/)]. - The director of the fbi is either a blatant liar, completely ignorant, or both: “i kind of just put it out of my mind,” he [comey] said, because he claimed it did not “index” with him that abedin was loosely connected to clinton. “I don’t know that i knew that [weiner] was married to huma abedin at the time” [ [source](https://www.Americanthinker.Com/articles/2018/08/the_deep_state_state_vs_the_american_people.Html)]. - The fbi found clinton guilty of essentially every act they investigated. Despite these findings, director comey cleared clinton by making a statement that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case”. This allowed loretta lynch at doj to announce the matter closed. It also allowed clinton to pronounce herself cleared of all wrongdoing. Note, the fbi does not decide who will be prosecuted. They investigate [ [source](https://themarketswork.Com/2017/05/13/the-injustices-of-obamas-department-of-justice/)]. - James comey made it clear that the exoneration of hillary clinton’s crimes is only a one-time offer; that others committing the same offenses could not expect to be cleared as well: “to be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions” [ [source](https://themarketswork.Com/2016/10/24/comeys-crimes/)]. - James comey took copious notes in the form of the comey memos that were later leaked to the press and diligently informed others of all interactions with trump while lying about having had any interactions with obama, never taking notes or notifying anyone [ [source](https://www.Google.Com/url?Q=https%3a%2f%2ftwitter.Com%2fbdomenech%2fstatus%2f984559202692722689%3fref_src%3dtwsrc%255etfw%26ref_url%3dhttp%253a%252f%252fredstatewatcher.Com%252farticle.Asp%253fid%253d124613&sa=d&sntz=1&usg=afqjcnfodufwyrrorvnuol29grtc00ijla)]. - James comey briefed john brennan, james clapper, samantha power, loretta lynch on the alleged russian interference into the trump campaign, yet the trump campaign was left in the dark [ [source](https://saraacarter.Com/pandoras-box-trump-russia-may-expose-extent-of-five-eyes-spying/?Utm_source=onesignal)]. - The fbi notifies members of congress of sensitive matters on a quarterly basis; however, james comey failed to notify congress of the trump-russian investigation due to the “sensitivity of the matter” [ [source](https://www.Google.Com/url?Q=https%3a%2f%2fwww.Bongino.Com%2fjune-7-2018-ep-737-the-media-continues-to-ignore-this-exploding-scandal%2f&sa=d&sntz=1&usg=afqjcnf19ngukqlokcv3dxv-aae_h7tlea)]. - James comey breached justice department protocols in a july 5, 2016, press conference when he criticized hillary clinton for using a private email server as secretary of state even as he cleared her of any crimes [ [source](http://time.Com/5264153/the-fbi-is-in-crisis-and-america-is-paying-the-price/)]. - James comey reopened the clinton email probe less than two weeks before the election (which violates the fbi’s policy of taking action so close to an election date) [ [source](http://time.Com/5264153/the-fbi-is-in-crisis-and-america-is-paying-the-price/)]. - James comey broke with justice department rules and norms by assuming authority usually held by prosecutors and speaking in public about a case that did not produce criminal charges [ [source](http://time.Com/5264153/the-fbi-is-in-crisis-and-america-is-paying-the-price/)]. - Comey’s follow-up release of the fbi’s investigated file was done on the friday before the long labor day weekend – a timing sure to stymie full reporting [ [source](https://themarketswork.Com/2016/10/24/comeys-crimes/)]. - Director comey did not interview clinton until the end of the investigation – three days before the press conference where he announced his conclusions. This runs against standard fbi protocol. Typically (always) they get the witness on record early so they can see how the testimony holds against what they find in the investigation [ [source](https://themarketswork.Com/2016/10/24/comeys-crimes/)]. - The fisa court application to surveil carter page — an application that breaks every rule in the book: anonymous foreign sources spouting multiple hearsay, no corroboration, no disclosure to the court that it comes from the opposition presidential campaign, no explanation that the foreigner who supplied the unverified allegations has been booted from the investigation for lying, etc., [ [Source](https://www.Nationalreview.Com/2018/06/ig-report-fbi-no-bias-conclusion-may-not-supported/)]. The initial fisa application does not include steele’s employment by fusion gps or founder glenn simpson. Fusion gps was paid by perkins coie – a law firm representing the dnc.

On march 31, 2015 an employee of the company that maintained the server deleted the archive mailbox from the server.

Besides, he had bigger concerns, such as, “you know, is the government of russia trying to get somebody elected here in the united states?” Strzok and headquarters sat on the mountain of evidence for another 26 days [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - The fbi made public claims that the new emails were duplicates, but at least five classified emails recovered were not duplicates but new to investigators [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - Sally moyer — a registered democrat, the lead fbi attorney on the midyear team who had initially discounted the trove of new emails as “duplicates” and failed to act upon their discovery, who drafted an unusually narrow scope for the search warrant, and was also head of the email “filtering” team — after various searches of the laptop, she and the midyear team came up with 6,827 emails they classified as being tied directly to clinton. Moyer then culled away from that batch emails she deemed to be personal in nature and outside the scope of legal agreements, cutting the stack in half. That left 3,077 which she deemed “work related” out of 694,000 emails on nov. 5, moyer, strzok and a third investigator divided up the remaining pool of 3,077 emails — roughly 1,000 emails each — and rifled through them for classified information and incriminating evidence in less than 12 hours, even though the identification of classified material is a complicated and prolonged process that requires soliciting input from the original classification authorities within the intelligence community [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - The search warrant crafted by sally moyer on the abedin/weiner laptop was too narrow: “the fbi only reviewed emails to or from clinton during the period in which she was secretary of state, and not emails from abedin or other parties or emails outside that period,” horowitz pointed out in a section of his [report](https://www.Justice.Gov/file/1071991/download)discussing concerns that the search warrant request was “too narrow” [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - Also excluded from the search warrant were abedin’s yahoo emails, even though investigators had previously found classified information on her yahoo account and would arguably have probable cause to look at those emails as well [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - Also removed from the search warrant were the blackberry data — even though the fbi had previously described them as the “golden emails,” because they covered the dark period early in clinton’s term [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - “Noticeably absent from the search warrant application prepared by the midyear team is both any mention that the nyo agent had seen clinton’s emails on the laptop and any mention of the potential presence of blackberry emails from early in clinton’s tenure,” horowitz noted [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - Even though the blackberry messages were “critical to [the] assessment of the potential significance of the emails on the weiner laptop, the information was not included in the search warrant application,” he stressed, adding that the search warrant application appeared to misrepresent the information provided by the new york field agent. It also grossly underestimated the extent of the material. The affidavit warrant mentioned “thousands of emails,” while the new york agent had told them that the laptop contained “hundreds of thousands” of relevant emails [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - Strzok and his team never forensically examined the weiner laptop to see if classified information residing on it had been hacked or compromised by a foreign power before nov. 6, law enforcement sources say. A complete forensic analysis was never performed by technicians at the fbi’s lab at quantico [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)]. - No electronic record exists of the case agent’s initial review of the weiner laptop. The case agent told us that at some point in mid-october 2016 the nyo asac instructed the case agent to wipe his work station. The case agent explained that the asac was concerned about the presence of potentially classified information on the case agent’s work station, which was not authorized to process classified information. The case agent told us that he followed the asac’s instructions, but that this request concerned him because the audit trail of his initial processing of the laptop would no longer be available. The case agent clarified that none of the evidence on the weiner laptop was impacted by this, explaining that the fbi retained the weiner laptop and only the image that had been copied onto his work station was deleted. The asac recalled that the case agent “worked through the security department to address the concern” of classified information on an unclassified system. He told us that he did not recall how the issue was resolved [ [source](https://www.Google.Com/url?Q=https%3a%2f%2fwww.Scribd.Com%2fdocument%2f381806566%2fig-report-on-fbi-and-doj-handling-of-clinton-investigation&sa=d&sntz=1&usg=afqjcngyonnan9h1rln0igdd5blp-uly8g)]. - The department of justice reportedly refused to impanel a grand jury in either the e-mail case or in connection with the fbi’s investigation of the clinton foundation pay-for-play allegations [ [source](https://themarketswork.Com/2017/05/13/the-injustices-of-obamas-department-of-justice/)]. “Los angeles agents had picked up information about the clinton foundation from an unrelated public-corruption case and had issued some subpoenas for bank records related to the foundation. Anti-corruption prosecutors at the justice department told the fbi they wouldn’t authorize more aggressive investigative techniques, such as subpoenas, formal witness interviews, or grand-jury activity” [ [source](https://themarketswork.Com/2017/05/13/the-injustices-of-obamas-department-of-justice/)]. - Anthony weiner’s laptop was sent out to a private company, granite intelligence, after being seized by the fbi instead of preserving the chain of custody within the fbi evidence lockers [ [source](https://www.Google.Com/url?Q=https%3a%2f%2fwww.Documentcloud.Org%2fdocuments%2f4465430-weiner-search-warrant-2016.Html%23document%2f&sa=d&sntz=1&usg=afqjcnfvmhu5fnh52f-xraaujs-abjpaba)]. - “Most of the emails were never examined, even though they made up potentially 10 times the evidence” of what was reviewed in the original year-long case that comey closed in july 2016, said a law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation. Yet even the “extremely narrow” search that was finally conducted, after more than a month of delay, uncovered more classified material sent and/or received by clinton through her unauthorized basement server, the official said. Contradicting comey’s testimony, this included highly sensitive information dealing with israel and the u.S.-Designated terrorist group hamas. The former secretary of state, however, was never confronted with the sensitive new information and it was never analyzed for damage to national security [ [source](https://www.Realclearinvestigations.Com/articles/2018/08/22/despite_comey_assurance_vast_bulk_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.Html)].

There were classified emails on the laptop that was in anthony weiner’s possession.

Others further down the fbi chain of command, however, said agents were given a much starker instruction on the case: “stand down.” When agents questioned why they weren’t allowed to take more aggressive steps, they said they were told the order had come from the deputy director—mr.

The fbi and doj are two of the most mistrusted entities in the us today because of the actions of the leaders of these departments during the obama administration through today. The mueller investigation which resulted from their corrupt and criminal acts is an extension of the corruption. This must be addressed or the us will officially remain a banana republic.

Nick schifrin: from the hague today, devastating and divisive allegations by international criminal court prosecutor karim khan, accusing israel of -- quote -- intentionally directing attacks against a civilian population and -- quote -- starvation of civilians as a method of warfare and requesting arrest warrants for israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and defense minister yoav gallant. Karim khan: these individuals, through a common plan, have systematically deprived the civilian population of gaza of objects indispensable to human survival. Nick schifrin: at the same time, the icc also seeks arrest warrants for hamas leader yahya sinwar and military branch leader mohammed deif on the right, both of whom are hiding in gaza, and political bureau head ismail haniyeh, who lives openly in qatar, for killing more than 1,200 and kidnapping more than 250 on october 7. Karim khan: there are reasonable grounds to believe that these three hamas leaders are criminally responsible for the killing of israeli civilians in attacks perpetrated by hamas and other armed groups on the 7th of october 2023. Nick schifrin: israeli and u.S. Officials argued the icc had no jurisdiction, especially during ongoing domestic israeli investigations. Prime minister benjamin netanyahu called the announcement and khan himself outrageous. Benjamin netanyahu, israeli prime minister: through this incendiary decision, mr. Khan takes his place among the great antisemites in modern times. He now stands alongside those infamous german judges who donned their robes and upheld laws that denied the jewish people their most basic rights and enabled the nazis to perpetrate the worst crime in history. Nick schifrin: the announcement united usually fractious israeli politicians. More than 100 lawmakers condemned the icc, as did opposition leader yair lapid. Yair lapid, former israeli prime minister (through translator): its unforgivable. We have and we are managing a just war. And it needs to be clear that we wont stay silent over it. Nick schifrin: president biden also called the announcement outrageous and said: there is no equivalence, none, between israel and hamas. Hamas also condemned -- quote -- the attempts by the iccs public prosecutor to equate the victim with the executioner. A panel of judges will now decide whether to issue the warrants that khan requested today. For the pbs newshour, im nick schifrin. Geoff bennett: were going to get two perspectives on this now. Adil haque is a professor of law at rutgers law school. And yuval shany is the chair of international law at the hebrew university of jerusalem. Hes also a former chair of the u.N. Human rights committee. Thank you both for being with us. Adil haque, we will start with you. How significant is this move by the chief prosecutor at the international criminal court to seek arrest warrants for top leaders from both israel and hamas? And what might the practical impact of this be, given that israels government doesnt recognize the icc? Adil haque, rutgers university: so, the significance is tremendous. We have the prosecutor of the international criminal court bringing extremely serious charges against both the leaders of hamas and the leaders of the israeli military and the political establishment. And there are really a variety of crimes, ranging from, in the case of hamas, murder, rape, torture, taking of hostages, and, on the israeli side, the use of starvation as a method of warfare, the killing of civilians, and the crime against humanity of extermination. Indeed, both the leaders of hamas and the leaders of israel have been charged with crimes against humanity, as well as war crimes. So these are incredibly serious allegations, extremely serious crimes. And so the fact that they are being charged in an independent and objective manner, an even-handed manner by the prosecutor is of enormous significance. The practical significance may be limited. Even if arrest warrants are issued by the pretrial chamber, it may be very, very difficult to execute them. But theyre significant in two other ways. The first is the expressive value of affirming the rights and the dignity of the victims of crimes committed by both sides of this terrible conflict. And the other is to hopefully catalyze a political process that bring the conflict to a close and hopefully create accountability for the many victims on both sides. Geoff bennett: yuval shany, what about that? And whats been the reaction in israel? And do you think this move by the icc might change the way israel is carrying out its war in gaza? Yuval shany, hebrew university of jerusalem: well, thank you. I tend to agree with adil that this is quite a dramatic development. I would note that the prosecutor did -- although the charges are quite significant and broad, ultimately, they deal with a relatively narrow set of facts. So, with hamas, its really dealing with the murders that took place on october 7, the taking of hostages, and the mistreatment of hostages. And on the israeli side, it has to do with the policy regarding humanitarian aid, which has been characterized, like adil said, as a form of a policy of starvation. The reaction in israel has been, as one can imagine, extremely negative. The very idea that hamas -- the israeli leadership is being put on a similar level to the hamas leadership has been regarded here as a form of insult. And i imagine that israel is not going to cooperate with these proceedings going forward. It has also been commented that this is -- at least by the opposition, that this is a diplomatic failure by the government that it has led us to such a low place. Will it affect the war? In the short run,probably not, because israel has changed its policy with regard to humanitarian aid. And now the declared policy is allegedly flooding the gaza strip with aid. But i do believe that, beyond the very short-term range, this could be another impetus for israel to bring the war to an end, because it does appear to be in a state of a tailspin, where the legal front and the diplomatic fronts are basically complicated -- are becoming more and more complicated every week that passes by. Geoff bennett: well, in a statement, president biden called the application for arrest warrants against israeli leaders, he called them outrageous. And secretary of state antony blinken, in a separate statement, said the u.S. Fundamentally rejects the call for arrest warrants and he says it could jeopardize diplomacy for a cease-fire or a hostage deal between israel and hamas. Adil haque, how do you assess the u.S. Response and the u.S. Position here? Adil haque: so the u.S. Response has been disappointing. One striking feature of it is that i have not yet seen any defense of israeli policy on the merits. The objections are to a supposed equivalence thats being drawn between israeli leaders and hamas leaders or objections based on jurisdiction or process or propriety, but nothing really on the merits, nothing saying that the israeli leaders are not guilty as charged. On this point of equivalence, its important to understand that international law does not compare individuals with each other. It compares each individuals conduct with their legal obligations. So the standard is not, is one side better or worse than the other? The standard is the law. Is each side complying with its legal obligations? And, certainly, according to the prosecutor, neither side is complying with its legal obligations. And so both have to be charged and brought to justice. Geoff bennett: yuval shany, the iccs chief prosecutor had faced significant pressure from washington for months to avoid bringing arrest warrants against top israeli leaders in particular. And yet they moved forward anyway. What do you think accounts for the timing? And what is the overall impact on the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, his political standing? Yuval shany: well, his political standing, may be again for the short time -- for the short time, we will see some rallying around the flag. And there has been already more than 100 parliament members in israel out of 120 have signed a statement which condemns the proceedings. But i think, in the long run, it does increase the perception of netanyahu as a political liability on the state of israel. And netanyahu, who has ran for many campaigns on the basis of his diplomatic skills. I think may be running out of road in this regard. Geoff bennett: yuval shany and adil haque, we thank you both for your insights. We appreciate it. Yuval shany: thank you very much. Amna nawaz: in the days other headlines: the container ship that caused the deadly bridge collapse in baltimore has finally returned to port. This morning, the dali made the slow 2.5-mile journey back to land escorted by tugboats. Its bow is still covered in damaged containers, steel and concrete. Port officials said today theyre getting closer to fully reopening the channel. Jonathan daniels, executive director, maryland port administration: so, as far as the depth and the draft thats necessary to bring the larger vessels in, that depth is there. We just dont have the width. Theres still material, theres still bridge sections that are in place. But as the army corps and the unified command has indicated, theyre looking at the end of may. Amna nawaz: in the meantime, shipping company officials are working on allowing the ships 21 crew members to disembark. Theyd stayed on board for maintenance and to help investigators determine what led to the crash. Wind and hail battered large parts of oklahoma and kansas last night, as the latest bout of severe weather sweeps through the region. Nearly 20 homes were damaged in western oklahoma.

Defense secretary lloyd austin is vowing to keep the flow of weapons moving to ukraine as russia intensifies its attacks on the countrys northeastern region of kharkiv. Austin spoke this morning to a virtual meeting of some 50 defense leaders from europe and around the world. He promised that weapons would keep coming week after week. Lloyd austin, u.S. Secretary of defense: we are again delivering urgently needed assistance to ukraine and the security assistance that we are now rushing to ukraine will make a difference in this fight. The united states remains determined to do our part. Amna nawaz: secretary austins comments come as ukraines president zelenskyy expressed frustration over the pace of western military support. Speaking to reuters news agency, he said that for, every one big step forward, there are two steps back. A british court has ruled that wikileaks founder julian assange can challenge his extradition to the u.S. His lawyers had argued that his free speech rights would not be protected if he was sent here to face trial. Supporters outside the court celebrated the decision. The australian activist has been indicted on 17 espionage charges over the publication of classified u.S. Military documents. His wife, stella, called for u.S. Authorities to drop the charges. Stella assange, wife of julian assange: as a family, we are relieved, but how long can this go on? The united states should read the situation and drop this case now. Now is the moment to do it. Amna nawaz: assange has spent the last five years in a british prison after seeking refuge in the ecuadorian embassy in central london in 2012. Also in the u.K., A public inquiry has concluded that a decades-old blood transfusion scandal was not an accident. It finds that britains national health service knowingly exposed tens of thousands of patients to hiv and hepatitis-tainted blood from the 1970s to the early 1990s, then tried to cover it up. An estimated 3,000 people are known to have died. British prime minister rishi sunak apologized to the victims and their families today.

Iranian president ebrahim raisi and the countrys foreign minister were found and confirmed dead today hours after their helicopter crashed in fog, leaving the islamic republic without two key leaders as extraordinary tensions grip the wider middle east. Supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei, who has the final say in the shiite theocracy, quickly named a little-known vice president as caretaker until the new election and insisted the government was in control. But the deaths marked yet another blow to a country beset by pressures at home and abroad. Special correspondent reza sayah in tehran has the latest. Reza sayah: it was a crash felt across the middle east. In irans mountainous northwest, a dense fog thinned out this morning, revealing the helicopters mangled tail and shards of debris wedged between the trees. After an hours-long search, rescue teams found no survivors. Among the eight people on board, irans hard-line president and the supreme leaders protege, ebrahim raisi, as well as the countrys foreign minister, hossein amirabdollahian, two of irans most senior figures killed. Man (through translator): this is a serious incident for all of us. Reza sayah: a stunning loss that threatens instability. But, today, the countrys newly appointed caretaker, first vice president mohammad mokhber, delivered a message of reassurance. Mohammad mokhber, interim iranian president (through translator): the country will continue moving forward under this leadership. Everyone should continue on with their roles, despite this incident. In no way will this tragic incident interfere with the government and running of our country. Reza sayah: raisi was viewed as a regime loyalist, rewarded by irans supreme leader with numerous promotions, and finally a presidential candidacy in 2017. That year, raisi lost. Four years later, he won after a carefully choreographed election campaign. Raisis government cracked down on internal unrest after the death of mahsa amini sparked mass protests in 2022. Raisi won the 2021 presidential elections with the lowest voter turnout in four decades. He was clearly not a popular figure. Even so, many believe his carefully engineered political rise was not going to end at the presidency. Many believe he was being groomed to replace irans aging supreme leader. With his death, the most important question now may not be who irans next president will be, but who irans next supreme leader will be. In tehran today, hundreds of raisi supporters gathered in the streets to mourn. Mohammad beheshti, tehran resident (through translator): we were shocked that we lost such a character, a character that made iran proud and humiliated the enemies. Reza sayah: outside irans borders, a very different sentiment. In berlin, iranians living in exile showed little sorrow. Mohammadreza sharafati, iranian exile (through translator): we are very, very happy. And we hope that we -- as soon as possible, we will take our country back. Reza sayah: raisi and his convoy had been flying back from azerbaijan late sunday, where, hours before the crash, he met with leaders and visited a dam construction site. Flying conditions were poor, but officials did not immediately say what caused the bell helicopter to go down. U.S. State department officials blamed iran for flying the helicopter carrying the president in bad weather. Matthew miller, state department spokesman: ultimately, its the iranian government that is responsible for the decision to fly a 45-year-old helicopter in what was described as poor weather conditions, not any other actor. Reza sayah: acting president mokhber spoke by phone today with leaders of russia and turkey, and condolences poured in from countries around the world. Officials in lebanon, syria and iraq announced a mourning period to span the next three days. For the pbs newshour, im reza sayah in tehran. Amna nawaz: and to break down what this means for irans future and how it impacts foreign policy at this crucial juncture, we turn now to suzanne maloney. Shes vice president and director of foreign policy at the brookings institution. Thats a washington, d.C., Think tank. Welcome. Thanks for being here. Suzanne maloney, saban center for middle east policy, brookings institution: thank you. Amna nawaz: lets begin with this helicopter crash. Is there any reason to believe that this was anything other than an accident, that this could have been foul play? Suzanne maloney: i think the most realistic explanation is one that is the most obvious. It was very poor weather, based on some of the scenes from the rescue efforts. This was -- there was fog, rain, and it was a helicopter that was quite old. Its quite understandable that there are conspiracy theories. Iranians have a tendency to interpret events in the light of their own history. And, of course, in particular, the region has been aflame recently. Iran recently struck israel in an unprecedented attack. And the israeli response was quite mild. And so, given the past history of israeli assassinations on iranian territory of nuclear scientists, i think its not surprising that there are conspiracy theories within iranians and around the region. Amna nawaz: tell us more about ebrahim raisi. We heard reza sayah report there, not a popular man. But tell us about the role he played in leadership, how he was seen by the public. Suzanne maloney: well, his most notable achievement was his role in the deaths of thousands of political prisoners back in 1988 who were sent to their deaths in sham trials over which raisi and several other judges presided. That seems to have cemented his rise through the judicial apparatus within iran, which is typically not a path to power within the executive branch. And yet raisi was plucked from the judiciary, clearly being groomed for something greater by the iran supreme leader. He had close family connections to irans powerful religious establishment in mashhad and had run irans largest religious shrine there. And many considered him to be the most leading candidate for succession. The supreme leader in iran, who holds ultimate authority, is 85 years old and is expected to pass from the scene in coming years. Amna nawaz: and raisi was a protege of khomeini. As you mentioned, he is 85 years old. Succession talk is ramping up. Is there a clear successor to khamenei in raisis absence? Suzanne maloney: well, the only other well-known candidate is actually mojtaba khamenei, who is the son of the current supreme leader and who is quite influential behind the scenes, but has never held a leadership role and has somewhat dubious clerical credentials. And so, given that this is a system has inveighed against hereditary monarchy for the past 45 years, it would be quite controversial if mojtaba becomes the only figure who is in contention to succeed his own father. Amna nawaz: this is a jarring moment for a nation to lose two leaders like this so suddenly at a time of enormous upheaval in the region, especially as we see iran working through so many of its proxies at the moment. Could the uncertainty of this moment have broader implications outside of iran? Suzanne maloney: i think that it will have a big shock to the system. The foreign minister who has killed, hossein amirabdollahian, was quite influential, well connected to the security bureaucracy and played a major role in irans coordination around its proxies across the region. His loss will be felt. And the regime, i think, will be on edge as they want to avoid any appearance of vulnerability. They have got to stage-manage an electoral process among a population that has demonstrated very little interest in these heavily managed elections. And they have got to ensure that they actually set the leadership up for a smooth transition with the expectation of a potential succession for the supreme leader. Amna nawaz: do you see any future leader dramatically changing irans posture or its strategy in the region at the moment? Suzanne maloney: its hard to imagine someone coming from within the system of the islamic republic who would make major changes at this point in time. There have been periods of time in the history of the islamic republic in which there have been movements to try to promote gradual reform. Those have all been completely shut down by those who control the security bureaucracy and the judiciary. Raisi was a key figure in that repression, and hes likely to be replaced by someone who comes from a similar background. Amna nawaz: its less than a minute left, but i have to ask you about what one gentleman said in sayahs report there, that raisis death could somehow empower or embolden the resistance within iran. Do you see that happening? Suzanne maloney: i think its an opportunity. And iranians have very few opportunities to both celebrate and potentially dream of something different for their country. And so i look forward to seeing what may happen in tehran and around the country over the course of the upcoming weeks. Amna nawaz: suzanne maloney of the brookings institution, thank you so much for joining us. Appreciate your time. Suzanne maloney: thank you. Geoff bennett: cross-examination wrapped up today for michael cohen, donald trumps former lawyer and fixer who is also a central witness in the criminal hush money trial against a former president. Mr. Trumps lead defense lawyer, todd blanche, portrayed cohen as a serial liar and someone who was profited by turning against his former boss. The prosecution has rested its case against the former president. William brangham was in court today and joins us now. So, william, the cross-examination of michael cohen ended today, his fourth day on the stand. How else did mr. Trumps legal team try to undercut the man who is arguably the most important witness for the prosecution? William brangham: geoff, they did what they did a lot of last week as well, which is basically just point out all the ways that they could where michael cohen said one thing one time and then said the opposite another time. They kept bringing up stories how michael cohen said once upon a time that donald trump had no knowledge of the stormy daniels hush money scheme and now claims that he did. Todd blanche again was saying that michael cohen is not motivated to be some truth-teller, as cohen sometimes likes to portray himself, but is instead motivated by vengeance and greed. He again brought up how cohen has made millions of dollars off books and podcasts and things like that. Hes arguing that, if trump is convicted, cohen will make even more money on top of that. He got michael cohen to admit that at one point he actually stole money from the trump organization. And, again, all of these stories are just to reiterate to the jurors that michael cohen is not a trustworthy witness and that everything thats coming out of his mouth on the stand in front of you, jurors, cannot be believed. Now, cohen himself under all of this cross-examination reiterated what he has said all along, which is, yes, i lied at one point for michael -- for donald trump because i was loyal to him and i was under his sway, but im not anymore and now im telling the truth. Geoff bennett: so when it was the trump legal teams turned to present their case, it called as a witness the attorney robert costello, who tried to further undercut michael cohens credibility. What did mr. Costello have to say on the witness stand? William brangham: costello is a former federal prosecutor, now a lawyer in private practice. And back in 2018, after michael cohens offices and hotel room and apartment were raided by the fbi with regards to a different investigation, costello offered himself to cohen as a legal adviser. And, again, this was back during the time when michael cohen was still saying that donald trump had no knowledge of the stormy daniels affair. And cohen says that costello, to him, felt like he was part of a pressure campaign by rudy giuliani, who costello is very close with, and by donald trump to make sure that michael cohen never changed that story. On the stand today, costello said: when i first met michael cohen, he said, i have nothing on donald trump to offer any authorities. Donald trump knew nothing about the stormy daniels business. He said that the michael cohen was somewhat manic and near-suicidal, and he rejected any notion that he had been trying to pressure cohen to change his story. Costellos testimony was something of a last-minute addition, and he was truly a cantankerous and feisty witness. At several times today, he expressed verbal displeasure with judges comments, with the judge sustaining certain objections. And, at one point, the judge was so perturbed by how costello was behaving that he cleared the courtroom and basically gave costello a tongue-lashing, saying, when you are in my courtroom, you will not behave this way. You will uphold a certain level of decorum. You will not be giving me any side-eye. And, if this keeps going, there are going to be repercussions here. The jury was brought back in, and costello finished his testimony. He will still be on the stand for more cross-examination tomorrow, though. Geoff bennett: so, in the less than 30 seconds we have left, william, walk us through the timing for the rest of this trial. Expected to wrap up as early as next week? William brangham: that was the plan originally that we would be done this week, but the judge did not want to have a circumstance where, this week, jury got to hear the closing arguments from both sides and then sat basically with that information for the entire memorial day weekend. So he said, because costellos testimony ran a little bit long, were going to push all of this off and have closing arguments tuesday after memorial day. Geoff bennett: all right, that is william brangham again in new york city for us tonight. William, thank you. William brangham: thanks, geoff. Amna nawaz: rapid advancements in artificial intelligence continue as companies roll out new products sparking both wonder and concern. Over the past week, openai unveiled its next generation chatbot, or chatgpt-4o. The new a.I. Assistant can respond to voice, text and visual commands in real time, as in this presentation when engineers asked it to tell a bedtime story. A.I. Voice: oh, a bedtime story about robots and love? I got you covered. Gather round, barret. Once upon a time... Man: i really want maximal emotion, like maximal expressiveness, much more than you were doing before. A.I. Voice: understood. Lets amplify the drama. Once upon a time... Woman: can you do this in a robotic voice now? A.I. Voice: initiating dramatic robotic voice. (Laughter) (applause) a.I. Voice: once upon a time. Amna nawaz: openai actually paused the use of that particular virtual voice after some pointed out its similarity to the robot voiced by scarlett johansson in the movie her. Scarlett johansson, actress: good morning, theodore. Joaquin phoenix, actor: good morning. Scarlett johansson: you have a meeting in five minutes. You wanted to try getting out of bed? Joaquin phoenix: youre too funny. Scarlett johansson: ok, good. Im funny. I want to learn everything about everything. Amna nawaz: google also unveiled a new a.I.-Powered search function this week. For more on that and all these developments, were joined by nilay patel, editor in chief of the verge and host of the decoder podcast. So, nilay, lets just start with google, the most visited web site in the world. Its making major changes to how billions of people search the web. Users will now see an a.I.-Generated answer for their search. How big a deal is that? Nilay patel, editor in chief, the verge: its a momentous change for how the web works today. A lot of web sites that you visit are driven by the need for google traffic. Its up to 30 percent or more of most big web sites traffic comes from google. So when google starts keeping more of that traffic for itself, thats going to change the economics of putting content on the web. It might shift some of that content to platforms like tiktok and youtube and instagram. And it will certainly shake up how the web is organized and structured, because, instead of getting links from google, publishers might try to gain their way into those a.I. Previews. And i think google has a big question to answer around what the incentive to put new content on the web is, if its just going to synthesize that content and present it to people searching for free. I talked to google ceo sundar pichai about this. He said its a paradigm shift. Theres going to be changes that he believes the web will endure. Amna nawaz: you described the reaction to the news of this new search from people who actually make web sites as fundamentally apocalyptic. Why? Nilay patel: yes, i mean, the web has reached a steady state over the past 25, 30 years, where people put up web sites, google indexes those web sites. We allow google to do that because thats whats considered fair use. And then, in return, google sends traffic to web sites. And its a huge portion of traffic for a lot of the web sites on the internet is google search traffic. If google starts to keep that traffic for themselves, then a lot of businesses will fail. Amna nawaz: ok, what about this new chatbot that chatgpt -- that openai just revealed? We saw a brief demo of that. Is this basically the model for how all of us are going to be interacting with our tech one day? Nilay patel: its the vision. Google unveiled something thats very similar to called project astra, this idea that you have a multimodal search interface, where you have got your phone in your hand, your phone is looking at things with its camera. Its talking to you about what it sees. You can ask it questions. It has a personality. Openai is really leaning into the personality factor here. What we havent seen is a huge leap in terms of accuracy. So, because the chatbots are very good at language, that you can build these products that are very convincing, right? They can talk to you that have these personalities, they can emote in different ways, they can do different kinds of image generation. They can recognize videos of broken toys in your home and tell you how to fix them. The flip side of it is language and intelligence arent 100 percent correlated, maybe not at all correlated. And so youre seeing this gap of the demos where you ask it questions and its very confident in what it tells you. But, sometimes, its wrong. And i think thats actually the thing thats going to hold these kinds of products back from widespread adoption is they have got to get better at being accurate. I think were seeing incredible advances in facility with language and were seeing a pretty steady state in terms of actual intelligence. Amna nawaz: meanwhile, microsoft, we should mention, is also going to make its own big a.I. Announcement this week. What do we expect to hear from them? Nilay patel: so, today, microsoft unveiled a new line of a.I. P.C.S, copilot p.C.S thats what theyre branding them as. They have got a new chip in them which they claim will be faster than the chip in apples macbook air that has been a benchmark for the industry for a very long time. And theyre rolling out a new version of windows. And it has a bunch of a.I. Features built into it for consumers, including one called recall, which is fascinating, where the operating system or windows basically watches along with you. As you use your computer, you can ask it questions. As youre playing games, it can talk to you about what its seeing on the screen in the game. You can ask it questions for help in the games. As youre using the applications on your p.C., You can ask it for help, it can drive your p.C. For you. This is a big vision for in -- computing. Its been the dream for a long time. You will have an intelligent agent on your computer that is actually helping you use that computer. Microsoft took the first steps of that today with the copilot p.C.S. It seems very compelling. I have a lot of questions about privacy and security, and where all that data is going, and whos tracking, and who has access to it. Microsoft says its all being done locally on the p.C., But i really want to test this stuff out and make sure that thats actually true. Amna nawaz: you mentioned privacy, security concerns, also accuracy concerns with some of the other a.I. Functions. I guess the question is, how much insight do you have as someone who covers this into where all of those concerns rank, in terms of how quickly some of these tech firms are pushing out new products? Is that a shared concern? Nilay patel: i dont think that concern ranks nearly highly enough. I think what youre seeing here is an extraordinary battle -- extraordinary battle between a bunch of big tech companies who feel the competitive pressure for the first time in a long time from openai, from one another, and theyre racing these products out to capture market share, so they dont get left behind. In just a few weeks, apples going to roll out a bunch of a.I. Features in the new version of ios for the iphone, and we will see them partner with a google or an openai for some of the features in a way that might cut against some of their privacy promises. We have to see what they claim, and that that is all because of the pressure that this is a paradigm shift on the order of mobile, on the order of social networking. And if you get left behind, youre going to lose a ton of market share. Amna nawaz: that is nilay patel, editor in chief of the verge and host of the decoder podcast. Thank you so much for being with us. Nilay patel: thanks for having me. Geoff bennett: as donald trumps criminal hush money trial nears its conclusion, high-profile republican supporters continue to make appearances to the new york city courthouse to show their support for the former president. Is this the new litmus test for gop candidates? One of the questions for our politics monday team. Thats amy walter of the cook political report with amy walter and tamara keith of npr. Great to see you both. So lets start there, tam, with this stream of gop elected leaders who have been making this pilgrimage to this new york city courthouse to speak out in support of donald trump. What should we make of this? These leaders, these elected leaders, say that theyre there to speak on behalf of mr. Trump because he cant speak on his own behalf because of his gag order. Tamara keith, national public radio: and they are delivering the message that the former president wants to have delivered, a message that, both with their presence and with their words is saying, this trial isnt serious. This trial is a witch-hunt or a democratic prosecutor run amok. By making that pilgrimage up there, often dressed in the trump uniform, they are standing behind him quite literally and signaling certainly to republican base voters, its ok. You dont need to worry about this thing no matter how it turns out. This is fine. Dont worry. Geoff bennett: and, amy, speaker mike johnsons appearance is notable, i think, given the constitutional heft of his office. And by being there, he is effectively leveraging his speakership and all of the symbolic weight and significance that carries against the justice system. Amy walter, the cook political report: yes, although i would argue, geoff, that really what hes trying to do by going there and showing his support is actually trying to keep his own job. We know the role that donald trump can play in keeping the fractious republican party together. And, in fact, he was pretty much responsible for making sure that congresswoman marjorie taylor greenes call to oust mike johnson failed. He put out on truth social that shes really great and everything, but nows the time for us to come together. Dont vote to oust the speaker. But he had a very important note at the very end of that missive where he said, we may -- at some point, it may -- very well may be the case that he needs to be ousted. That is not now. So, ultimately, if youre mike johnson, you know that literally every day your ability to keep your job depends on getting the support of the former president. Geoff bennett: and, at the same time, the so-called big lie about the 2020 election has now become this big litmus test for republicans. And its expanded to their willingness to accept the results of the 2024 election. Congressman -- rather, senator marco rubio, said to be a trump v.P. Hopeful, was on meet the press yesterday, and he wouldnt accept or wouldnt commit to accepting the 2024 results. Kristen welker, moderator, meet the press: will you accept the election results of 2024 no matter what happens, senator? Sen. Marco rubio (r-fl): no matter what happens? No, if its an unfair election, i think its going to be contested by either side. Kristen welker: no matter who wins? Senator, no matter who wins? Sen. Marco rubio: well, why dont you -- i think youre asking the wrong person. The democrats are the ones that have opposed every republican victory since 2000, every single one. Geoff bennett: and hes not the only one. Senator tim scott would also not commit to accepting the results of the 2024 election. This has very much become party orthodoxy now. Tamara keith: and this is very similar to language that many republicans, including mike pence, landed on after the 2020 election and before january 6, where they didnt want to go all the way as far as trump is going and say that the election was stolen, but they wanted to say, well, you should look into it. And what theyre saying here is, well, we will support the results if its a fair election. But its worth noting that former president trump really only thinks an election is fair if he wins. And i will just remind you that, after 2016, he won, and then he claimed that there was election - - there was voter fraud in california and new hampshire because he didnt win those states. So he is someone who has a very lengthy, proven track record of denying election results. And now you have republicans out there, mainstream republicans, creating sort of a permission structure, saying that, if its fair, then maybe i will support the results. Theyre not willing to commit in advance. And that creates a permission structure for mainstream republican voters to say, well, if theyre ok with this, then i can be ok with this. Geoff bennett: and, amy, we know how damaging this denialism is for our democracy. How does it play politically? I mean, is there political utility in republicans rallying around this issue? What does it do for moderate republicans or independent voters, who are going to be the swing deciders in this election? Amy walter: when you see folks like marco rubio or those other candidates you discussed going on tv and answering questions like this, they really arent speaking to voters. Theyre speaking to an audience of one. And that is donald trump. Many of them are essentially in tryouts to be the vice president. What we know about this president, its always been the case, but i think it has even ratcheted up in the most recent time period, that he looks for loyalty above all else, and especially in his vice president, the person who will be with him if he gets back to the white house. He wants to make sure that, no matter what, this person is going to stand with him. And i think were going to see similar loyalty tests all the way down to any office that would get filled by a political appointee, should donald trump win election to a second term. Geoff bennett: lets talk about the debates, because i think that news broke last wednesday. It was after we had a chance to speak with you both last monday. We have got the first scheduled debate now just six weeks away. Its going to happen in june on cnn. The rival campaigns have skirted around the commission on presidential debates. Tam, whats the risk/reward calculus for both sides here, having this debate in a studio, no audience? Tamara keith: so both trump and his team and biden and his team think that his opponent cannot stand there for 90 minutes and conduct a debate without embarrassing themselves, falling asleep, slurring their words. You name it, they think that their opponents are incapable of going into a debate. So that is part of the calculus on both sides. What i will say is that, on the biden side, i have spoken to people close to the biden campaign. They really believe, and they have been saying this for months, that people are not focused on this campaign. And so when trump said any time, anywhere, they said, lets do it in june, because we want people to start paying attention to the choice and being aware of the stakes in the election. Thats the theory that the biden campaign is operating under, is that their numbers will improve if people realize that, yes, in fact, joe biden and donald trump are the candidates. And so theyre trying to jump ahead of the conventions, which would be a traditional time when people would become more aware of the election. Geoff bennett: amy, how do you see it? And is june too early for a debate that will matter? Amy walter: i think that if youre the biden campaign, as tam pointed out, its not too early. You need to shake this race up. I think, if anything, what -- the decision by the biden campaign to accept this debate suggests that they know that they are running behind, or at least not in the position they want to be for an incumbent president. They need to turn this election from one thats a referendum on biden to one thats a choice between biden and trump. The risk, of course, is that either it doesnt work, and now its june, the numbers dont move very much, and the president goes into his convention a few weeks later with an even more depressed and anxious base of voters, and trump is able to go into his convention with a lot of wind at his back. So there is, i think, a very big risk for biden here that it doesnt go as planned. But if the biden campaign, as tam pointed out, their entire theory of the case is that this has to be made clear that it is a choice, that choice has to be put in front of voters as quickly as possible and as often as possible. Geoff bennett: all right, amy walter and tamara keith, thank you both, as always. Tamara keith: youre welcome. Amy walter: youre welcome. Amna nawaz: some 50 years into her career and almost 90 years old, artist lorraine ogrady was recently honored with a prestigious guggenheim fellowship. If that sounds like an honor delayed, much of ogradys career has played out with a slow burn. With her first ever museum retrospective now at wellesley colleges davis museum, she looks back at her long path to acceptance in the art world. Special correspondent jared bowen of gbh in boston has the story for our arts and culture series, canvas. Jared bowen: in her work and in life, artist lorraine ogrady has long confronted a world of black and white, as in either/or thinking, as in her own art-making, but also in racism, including what she experienced working at the bureau of labor statistics in the 1950s. Lorraine ogrady, artist: even though we were all intellectuals and they saw me as an intellectual, they could not imagine a black intellectual or a black female intellectual. They had not seen it. And that was because the black middle class was being willfully ignored. Jared bowen: but she would not be ignored and, over the next 20 years, she established her voice, covering the arts as a writer, translator and rock critic. And then ogrady decided to be seen. In the 1970s and 80s, she became an artist herself, zeroing in on the new york art world by reinventing herself as a conceptual and performance artist. Lorraine ogrady: those fields did not have a history. And that meant that you could make a history. You could make the present and the future. Jared bowen: and make career-defining statements. The art world of the time was deeply divided along racial lines. So ogrady called it out. She invaded new york city art spaces under the guise of mademoiselle bourgeoise noire, a fictional character ogrady devised with a backstory, that shed been crowned miss black middle class, complete with crown, sash, and a gown comprised of white gloves. It was a vision that had come to ogrady after many encounters with what she describes as the safe white art world. Lorraine ogrady: i said, oh, thats what that art was. It was art with white gloves on. This piece had two motivations, to kind of introduce myself as an artist and to answer the white art world. Nikki greene, associate professor of art history, wellesley college: shes an icon. She is one of the most prominent contemporary conceptual artists that we have among us. Jared bowen: nikki greene is an associate professor of art history at wellesley college, ogradys alma mater. On view now at the colleges davis museum is her first ever retrospective, coming nearly half-a-century into the now 89-year-old artists career. Nikki greene: because of lorraines persistence over the last four decades, i think people have finally seen the light in many ways. Jared bowen: gallery after gallery reveals ogradys argument that the world is so much more than black and white. Cross-pollination courses through her work, the trunk of a palm tree crowned by fir tree branches, a family album that features egyptian queen nefertiti alongside the artists sister devonia, harlem parade attendees suddenly framed as art. So are they simply joyous bystanders or the subject of a portrait? Is it a fir tree or palm tree, royalty or family? The answer, as ogrady has argued time and again, is both/and, the name of this show. Nikki greene: she always had a sense of a kind of duality in her own personal heritage, being black, but also having ancestry of european descent, being american, but living at home with parents who had very strong jamaican accents. Jared bowen: in 1982, ogrady depicted her life in a one-day-only performance in central park. Called rivers, first draft, or the woman in red, a figure emerges from her blended new england and caribbean background. Lorraine ogrady: the key moment is when she sees a white stove and she realizes its now or never and she begins to paint it her own color. She paints it red. Its me becoming an artist. Jared bowen: for her project titled art is... Ogrady hired dancers and actors toting gild frames to join the annual afro-american day parade in harlem. Mademoiselle bourgeoise noire was there, but the greater focus was on the community, where parade-goers joyously made themselves the art. Nikki greene: when one thinks of an ornate gold frame, often, theyre thinking of precious, fine art, perhaps from the renaissance or baroque era. So taking a gilded frame means you are the finest, most precious art as well. Jared bowen: less precious to ogrady, the new york times. In one of her most famous series, she spent successive sundays cutting out headlines, words and phrases, restructuring them into her own poetry. Nikki greene: we see it too in quilts. I think thats probably one of the most beautiful examples, invisible examples of how this cutting and pasting and stitching can really create something on its own thats completely new and innovative. Jared bowen: for ogradys latest work, shes gone back to the beginning, remembering statues of both athena and joan of arc that adorned her boston high school. She commissioned her own suit of armor. And in making this, shes also going back to her creative roots, fusing renaissance armor with a caribbean palm tree. Lorraine ogrady: i never know which part of my body is getting me into trouble and which part of my mind is getting me out of it. So i said i need an image thats the opposite. So i knew i needed -- i needed - - in the position of the body, i needed europe. In the position of the mind, i needed the caribbean. Jared bowen: for lorraine ogrady, the sum of her parts is as great as the whole, or, as she would put it, both/and. For the pbs newshour, im jared bowen in wellesley, massachusetts. Geoff bennett: and join us again here tomorrow night, when we will have our interview with late-night host bill maher. And that is the newshour for tonight. Im geoff bennett. Amna nawaz: and im amna nawaz. On behalf of the entire newshour team, thank you for joining us.
