2020.05.15 22:00 ModernJazz-2K20 A Beginner's Guide to the New Jazz Generation Jazzwise

This is a great place to start if you're not in tune with modern era jazz artists.

Theon Cross, Nubya Garcia, Joe Armon-Jones, Moses Boyd
https://preview.redd.it/dh27ubgsfzy41.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f792ca36f8216c8cb64145ce66d03dfaeaf78c71

SEED ENSEMBLE

Driftglass

Jazz re:freshed
Cassie Kinoshi (as), Miguel Gorodi, Sheila Maurice-Grey (t), Chelsea Carmichael (ts, f), Joe Bristow (tb), Theon Cross (tba), Joe Armon-Jones, Sarah Tandy (p, Fender Rhodes), Shirley Tetteh (g), Xana, Cherise Adams-Burnett, Mr. Ekow (v), Rio Kai (b) and Patrick Boyle (d)
Though Cassie Kinoshi is fully aware of 1960s American civil rights suites such as her alto icon Jackie McLean’s It’s Time!, they didn’t directly influence this debut, with its distinctly British roots and concerns. Perhaps the most concerted attempt so far at a major album from a generation of young London players more attuned to performing, Driftglass draws on Afrofuturism for its hopeful scope, our musical melting-pot for its sound, and Kinoshi’s classical studies for its structure.
Social engagement has again inspired ambitious black American music in these fractious, urgent times, but local racial oppression and liberation animate these songs. ‘The Darkies’ suggests post-war British films’ seedy, street-level jazz noir even as Debussy’s ‘The Golliwog’s Cakewalk’ threads through the tune, trailing both beauty and its title’s archaic presumptions. Poet Xana adds transcendent tower-block dreams in which, “my heart bursts out of my chest like a rocket/As I gather stars in my pocket”. Grenfell Tower’s stubborn symbol of murderous social schism stands accusingly at the record’s heart, as ‘Wake (for Grenfell)’ turns a Langston Hughes line into a mournful work-song chant, pointedly soured by Kinoshi’s tart alto tone.
The SEED Ensemble is another permutation of the London scene’s currently omnipresent players, and their individuality is crucially encouraged. Sarah Tandy splits keyboard duties with Joe Armon-Jones, but it’s her Rhodes’ glistening, slow flow which adds impressionistic colour, on ‘Mirrors’ especially. Lacking the obvious thematic baggage elsewhere, that tune floats free into its own atmosphere. Both the songs’ rigid overall structures and occasionally slack development hold Driftglass back from greatness. But Kinoshi’s debut bursts with often achieved ambition, and time is on her side. Nick Hasted

NÉRIJA

Blume

Domino
Nubya Garcia (ts, f), Sheila Maurice-Grey (t), Cassie Kinoshi (as), Rosie Turton (tb), Shirley Tetteh (g), Rio Kai (b) and Lizy Exell (d)
This long-awaited debut album from one of the most exciting young groups on the UK scene sounds like classic Blue Note with a contemporary London twist. On ‘Riverfest’, ‘Partner Girlfriend Lover’ and ‘Unbound’ strong melodies, richly-scored for the horns, and clever orchestral touches meet bustling grooves stitched with the distinctive silvery lines and creative chord-work of guitarist Shirley Tetteh.
‘Last Straw’ brings funk-rock grit and a bracing solo from trumpeter Sheila MauriceGrey (you could hear it in a 1970s detective movie or the soundtrack to Don Cheadle’s Miles Ahead). And Cassie Kinoshi’s ‘EU (Emotionally Unavailable)’ goes hard, leaving acres of space for the rhythm section who lay down a loose, grungy groove while Kinoshi’s alto spits anguished fire. Later on they shout out hip-hop as Nubya Garcia’s flute whirls through a cloud of effects. The title-track – all ethereal vocals and fluttering guitar – is split in two and returns at the very end. It’s a blissful conclusion to an excellent debut. Thomas Rees

MAISHA

There Is A Place

Brownswood
Jake Long (d), Nubya Garcia (ts, f), Amané Suganami (p, wurlitzer), Shirley Tetteh (g), Twm Dylan (b), Tim Doyle (perc), Yahael Camara-Onono (perc), Axel Kaner-Lindstrom (t), Johanna Burnheart, Barbara Bartz (vn), Tom Oldfield (clo), Madi Aafke Luimstra (vla) and Maria Zofia Osuchowska (hp)
Maisha brings together some of the stars of the young London jazz scene under the leadership of drummer and composer Jake Long. There Is A Place is their debut album and it’s one hell of an opening statement – echoing the work of spiritual jazz greats, including Pharoah Sanders and Alice Coltrane, and working in the infectious rhythms of West Africa.
‘Osiris’ is a dazzling start – a sonic Big Bang that unleashes the album’s lush, richly-textured soundworld. ‘Azure’ and the title-track evoke the tranquility of a Japanese garden, with Garcia adding wisps of flute; while ‘Eaglehurst/The Palace’ and ‘Kaa’ are swaggering and edgy. Here the band’s percussionists and the ticking guitar riffs and jabbing chord work of Shirley Tetteh come to the fore – bringing insinuations of Afro-beat, highlife and funk.
Long has also written some superb arrangements for a guest chamber ensemble, which make the album sound vast. The strings add folky sighs and shimmering clouds of dissonant notes, building beneath the soloists and carrying them higher. There will be inevitable comparisons with Kamasi Washington. Personally, I find Long’s writing more interesting and every bit as cosmic. One of my albums of the year. Thomas Rees

THE COMET IS COMING

Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery

Impulse!
Shabaka Hutchings (s), Dan Leavers (ky, syn) and Max Hallett (d)
The Comet Is Coming’s name alludes to apocalypse and a sense of human proportion in the cosmos, diving into religious and scientific concepts of end-times and rebirth. This second album confirms UK jazz’s pop culture resurrection while they’re at it. Where Sons of Kemet add Afro-Caribbean roots and ritual to current London music, Shabaka Hutchings helps reach for future visions here.
Updating spiritual jazz for a sci-fi age, Dan Leavers’ east London studio was fully utilised in his and Max Hallett’s flowing, precise production. But though Blade Runner’s soundtrack sometimes inspires Leavers’ synth glides, this is human, not cyborg, music. Big bang-expansive, relentless and restless, with Hutchings’ sax an attacking, integrated element in a bigger sonic picture, it could be played at a rave or place of worship, festival field or urban club. During ‘Blood of the Past’, a clearing appears for poet-rapper Kate Tempest to plead for, “a more soulful connection to land, and to lovers”; “Unable to listen, we keep speaking,” she adds, in an incantation against denatured life which resolves into a climbing Hutchings cry, beats slamming as if into soil.
The dance-floor transcendence of ‘Super Zodiac’ features some of Hutchings’ most exciting playing, his dancer’s feint into its final climactic seconds sending the whole album over the edge. Offering off-beat grime accents elsewhere, Hallett is the Elvin Jones-like energy core of ‘The Universe Wakes Up’ as Hutchings ascends, untroubled, cruising between modal hyper-speed and free rawness, Coltrane rising into view like a lost star. Nick Hasted

JOE ARMON-JONES

Turn To Clear View

Brownswood Recordings
Joe Armon-Jones (ky, syn), Moses Boyd, KwAkE BaSs (d), David Mrakpor, Mutale Chashi (b), Oscar Jerome (g), Nubya Garcia, James Mollison (ts), Dylan Jones (t), Asheber, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Jehst, Obongjayar and Luke Newman (v)
Fans of Ezra Collective and Nubya Garcia will be familiar with Joe Armon-Jones' soulful keyboard playing, but his second album also establishes him as a gifted composer and producer. Created in collaboration with Maxwell Owin, Turn To Clear View is a beautifully crafted journey through jazz-infused neo-soul, dub, Afro-beat, broken beat and hip-hop that feels like a wander through Armon-Jones’ record collection or a cult mixtape called something like ‘Sounds of London 2019’.
There are some big tunes here, among them ‘Yellow Dandelion’ (a standout feature for vocalist Georgia Anne Muldrow) and ‘Gnawa Sweet’, with its mellow horn lines and killer outro (bassist Mutale Chasi and drummer KwAkE BaSs really dig in). ‘Icy Roads (Stacked)’ is blurry and euphoric, ‘You Didn’t Care’ is a powerful tenor feature for Nubya Garcia and ‘The Leo & Aquarius’ is a neo-soul jam sandwiching a few choice verses from rapper Jehst.
It’s as much about the little details though: the electronic murmurs and snippets of endearingly mindless studio chat, spectral field recordings and blurred sax arpeggios (very To Pimp A Butterfly) that segue the tracks and give the whole thing such a wonderful sense of flow. Turn To Clear View is full of personality, which ties in nicely with the album’s message, hinted at in ‘Yellow Dandelion’ and confirmed by vocalist Obongjayar’s husky encouragement on the final track: “Be yourself”. Thomas Rees

ASHLEY HENRY

Beautiful Vinyl Hunter

Sony
Ashley Henry (p, ky), Theo Croker, Keyon Harrold (t), Judi Jackson (v), Sparkz (rap), Daniel Casimir (b), Eddie Hick, Marijus Aleska (d), Artie Zaitz (g), Makaya McCraven (d), Binker Golding (ts) and Moses Boyd (d)
London pianist Ashley Henry has made significant steps forward over the last five years or so by holding down several invaluable gigs as a sideman with fine British and American bandleaders – Theo Croker, Keyon Harrold, Jean Toussaint among others – as well as developing his own music. This debut long player is very much a consolidation of his progress to date and the presence of the aforementioned as well as some of the young Turks of UK jazz – Binker & Moses, Daniel Casimir, Eddie Hick – makes this a transatlantic affair with a contemporary edge.
As he made clear on last year’s Easter EP, Henry is plugged into the populist source of black music and the marked hip-hop and soul sensibilities of the material reflect the inspiration drawn from the likes of Robert Glasper among others. A confident yet measured soloist, Henry is also a producer who is concerned with the challenge of both songwriting and beat-making, and some of the most accomplished pieces on the record see him balance these skills with guests such as Mancunian rapper Sparkz and London-based American vocalist Judi Jackson. An auspicious account-opener from a talented player whose commercial appeal does not come at the expense of his artistic integrity. Kevin Le Gendre

BINKER GOLDING

Abstractions Of Reality Past & Incredible Feathers

Gearbox
Binker Golding (ts), Joe Armon-Jones (p), Daniel Casimir (b) and Sam Jones (d)
Saxophonist Golding shows his versatility on an enjoyable set. This is a markedly different proposition to the duos formed with Moses Boyd and Elliot Galvin insofar as there is less abstraction in the material, and the additional resources of the quartet are deployed with suitable flair and restraint.
Mostly set at ambling mid-tempo, the tunes are all Golding originals that show the strength of the blues as an ongoing source of musical inspiration as the leader investigates its various related idioms, from 1960s hard bop to 1990s neo-soul, all the while retaining a strong composer’s signature. Themes are clearly mapped, sometimes with a dancing quarter-noted led character, sometimes with more wistful long tones, and Golding’s improvisations are well-paced developments that build steadily rather than rushing towards a crescendo, allowing effective input from a rhythm section whose cohesion has been honed through extensive work with artists such as Nubya Garcia.
The occasional forays into reggae-inflected territory also appeal, and if Sam Jones’ crackling rimshots are particularly resonant then the imprint of legendary engineer James Farber, who mixed this in New York after the session was done at Abbey Road, is worth noting. At its peak this album has some of the modernist gospel finesse of Billy Harper, but Golding asserts himself convincingly as a writer-player who has an appealing voice of his own. Kevin Le Gendre


https://preview.redd.it/6rgkfkqjhzy41.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e1053a165f02e0ec7424ceecb05bb9a0fe640b25

THEON CROSS

Fyah

Gearbox
Theon Cross (tba), Nubya Garcia (ts), Moses Boyd (d), plus Wayne Francis (ts), Artie Zaitz (el g), Nathaniel Cross (tb) and Tim Doyle (perc)
Having built momentum with EPs, gigs and a gathering media storm, many of London’s new jazz generation are finally making their album debuts. Tubist Theon Cross has already made his name on LPs with Sons of Kemet – Fyah, though, helps define how a changing London is changing jazz.
The fat tuba squelch reverberating through the first seconds of ‘Accelerate’ is a statement of intent matched by the runaway, intricate momentum which follows, from a dream trio completed by Nubya Garcia and Moses Boyd. As dance music, this is funk turned inside-out, finding off-kilter rhythmic emphasis under grime’s influence.
Cross and Boyd are tireless, Blakey-esque engine rooms for the new beat, which they speak as a native tongue. ‘Panda Village’, meanwhile, uses synths to add a gleaming sheen, production technique no longer a shibboleth in UK jazz studios. As important as Cross’s borrowing from contemporary musical contexts are the elements he retains from jazz. ‘Letting Go’ is all whispered hi-hat hisses and subtle interweaving by Cross and Garcia. ‘CIYA’ is boppishly beautiful, like a lost Blue Note tune. Cross’s conversationally inviting solo, like the introspective quiet during ‘Letting Go’, offers individuality worth as much as the community this scene describes. Nick Hasted

DANIEL CASIMIR & TESS HIRST

These Days

Jazz Re:freshed
Daniel Casimir (b), Tess Hirst (v), Robert Mitchell (ky), Tobie Carpenter (g) and Olly Sarkar (d)
Tess Hirst’s words give barbed force to Daniel Casimir’s open-hearted music, which is grounded in hard bop while exploring a wider palette. Mingus’s dramatic litany of persecution, ‘Fables of Faubus’, is adapted to our own fearfully racist moment during ‘These Days’, while over brewing Blakey-esque drums, ‘What Did I Do’ digs into Hirst and Casimir’s home streets in London’s far west, where disrupting crime and change alienate, and the singer wonders “if the patient will survive the operation”.
A bluntly titled instrumental with added Hirst lyrics imminent, ‘They Come Over Here’, is spy-movie ominous, suggesting surveillance paranoia and the Specials’ haunted ska dancehalls with the serrated edge of Tobie Carpenter’s guitar, Casimir’s jittery bass and Jerry Dammers-like, cinematic piano. Guyanese-Briton John Agard’s rebel poetry also acerbically interjects, riding Windrush currents: “Me not no Oxford don/ Me a simple immigrant from Clapham Common... I don’t need no axe/to split up your syntax.” Instrumental or otherwise, this is another bulletin from a London scene engaged and unquiet about careless injustice. Nick Hasted
Daniel Casimir Interview

CAMILLA GEORGE

The People Could Fly

Ubuntu Music
Camilla George (as), Sarah Tandy (p, Fender Rhodes), Daniel Casimir (b, el b), Femi Koleoso, Winston Clifford (d), Omar Lye-Fook, Cherise Adams-Burnett (v), Shirley Tetteh (g) and Quentin Collins (t)
African folk tales of slavery and lost powers of flight sent Camilla George to sleep as a child in Nigeria. An enflamed imagination and restless nights must have followed, judging by spiritual jazz lullaby ‘Little Eight John’, in which Cherise Adams-Burnett warns of “raw head and bloody nose” from whatever awaits wakeful children in the unknown dark. George’s second album explores her nostalgic memories of these slavery-steeped stories.
Leading a band of peers in London’s new jazz scene, her alto playing is so sunnily optimistic that the shackles fall from her subjects, even before ‘The People Could Fly’ recalls myths of former freedom. Rattled chains introduce the sourer, knowing tone of George’s slow blues on ‘The Most Useful Slave’, followed by British soul elder Omar vocalising Curtis Mayfield’s lament for the slavery by other means of America’s drugs apocalypse, ‘Here But I’m Gone’. But George’s warmly liberated character dominates. As so often with this group of players, it’s remarkable how traditional she is on several hard-bop solos. It’s the soft power of an open heart and mind which keeps her music present-tense. Daniel Casimir’s limber funk bass and Shirley Tetteh’s sometimes Afro-funk-inflected, bubbling guitar prove the scene’s subtle variety, and their own worth as versatile, Most Valued Players.
The incubation of George’s talent in Gary Crosby’s Tomorrow’s Warriors, Courtney Pine’s Venus Warriors and Jazz Jamaica shows how determinedly British jazz’s black elders are passing torches. Flowering in a new generation, this is the sound of a woman who has already overcome. Nick Hasted

Chapter 1, "Work as Slavery", from The Ideology of Work by P. D. Anthony (1977) [part 2 of 2 of this post]
Source: Google Books
https://books.google.com/books?id=SajrAgAAQBAJ&lpg=PA15&ots=-O2JExtBVo&dq=%22The%20greatest%20contrast%20with%20our%20own%20attitude%22&pg=PA15#v=onepage&q&f=false
This coincidental stratification was not always true of late societies. In first and second century Rome, a good part of the intellectual life of society was carried on by slaves, often of Greek origin. It is as though, today, the civil service and the professions (particularly teaching and the universities) were largely dependent on the lowest order of society. It suggests that slavery is not necessarily and indissolubly identified with the most menial or manual kinds of work. Where any activity becomes specialized and is divorced from the possession of power, it becomes possible to regard it as a subordinate activity, subordinate even to the point of slavery. Where political power is in the hands of an oligarchy it is possible to regard culture as the activity of specialists.
The distinction between manual and intellectual specialist work becomes important again in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It became commonplace to assume that the intellectual specialist was privileged by virtue of his greater authority, economic resources, and culture. He was also believed to be fortunate in the pursuit of satisfying and enjoyable work. Karl Marx finally suggested that as functionaries of the bourgeois, intellectual specialists were not significantly different from other members of the proletariat. Perhaps George Gissing was one of the first to clothe this insight in imaginative reality when he showed the intellectual worker as reduced in effect to the position of a slave.
But the re-appearance of intellectual functionaries or slaves is some two thousand years removed from the period we have been discussing. The most immediate and potent legacy of Stoic philosophy was a theme of egalitarianism. The egalitarian tradition began in an even earlier classical myth of a golden age in which all were equal, there were no rich or poor, there was complete sexual promiscuity and work was not necessary. The golden age had vanished when "the wary surveyor marked out with long boundary lines the earth which hitherto had been a common possession like the sunshine and the breezes" (Ovid: Metamorphoses), and when covetousness had produced private property. "At least by the third century AD, Christian doctrine had assimulated from the extraordinary influential philosophy of Stoicism the notion of an egalitarian State of Nature which was irrecoverably lent" (Cohn 1962: 201).
The distinction between natural law and the law of man was reflected in the distinction between the state of nature and the existing conditions of man.
"It was agreed by most of the later Fathers that inequality, slavery, coercive government and even private property had no part in the original intention of God and had come into being only as a result of the Fall. Once the Fall had taken place, on the other hand, a development began which made such institutions indispensable. Corrupted by Original Sin, human nature demanded restraints which could not be found in an egalitarian order; inequalities of wealth, status and power were, thus, not only consequences of but also remedies for sin. The only recommendations which could be authorised by such a view were recommendations directed towards individuals and dealing solely with problems of personal conduct. That a master ought to behave fairly reasonably towards his slave who is as dear to God as he is himself ... such were the practical conclusions which were drawn, within the limits of orthodoxy, from the doctrine of the prime egalitarian State of Nature." (ibid.)
St. Augustine in The City of God, held that man had been created as a rational being and was intended to be set above animals, not above other men. But sin had created servitude "by which man is subjected to man by the bonds of his condition". This was orthodox Christian teaching. St Ambrose pronounced that nature "created a common right, but use and habit created private right" that "The Lord God specially wanted this earth to be the common possession of all, and to provide fruits for all; but avarice produced the rights of property".
Cohn (1962: 206) suggests that the myth of an egalitarian state of nature was popularized by Jean de Meun in the Roman de la Rose, about 1270, which, he says, was a forecast by some five hundred years of Rosseau. Once upon a time, runs the story, society was simple, all were equals and there was no private property. They knew well the maxim that love and authority never yet dwelt companionably together. But the vices of Deceit, Pride, Covetousness, and Envy promoted discord and distrust, men "became false and began to cheat; they fastened on properties, they divided the very soil and in doing so they drew boundaries, and often in settling their boundaries, they fought and snatched whatever they could from one another, the strongest got the biggest share." The resultant anarchy led to a search for order, men chose "a big villein as lord and the lords needed taxes to pay them to enforce order. Men fortified cities and castles ... for those who held these riches were much afraid lest they should be taken from them either by stealth or by force."
The Church advised a communal life of voluntary poverty but as an ideal possible only for the elite (another startling illustration of the inversion of our own values). This advice led to the establishment of the religious orders of monks and friars and, after the eleventh century, to the creation of lay communities sharing all property together. "But to imitate this imaginary version of the primitive Church was not yet to restore, or even attempt to restore, the last Golden Age of all humanity which had been portrayed for the ancient world by Seneca and for medieval Europe by Jean de Meun" (Cohn 1962 : 208).
The myth of a golden age was a picturesque representation of the difference between the ideal and the actual, the distinction that was recognized in a plurality of laws, natural and civil. The contradictions involved in this dualism challenged solution. One response (by St Thomas Aquinas) was to resolve the contradictions by a higher synthesis, to build them into a bigger system. Another response was to try to create the ideal and to substitute it for the actual. The attempt to recreate a golden age again on earth "produced a doctrine which became a revolutionary myth as soon as it was presented to the turbulent masses of the poor and fused with ferocious phantasies of popular eschatology" (Cohn 1962 : 210).
Cohn suggests that the myth of a golden age began to be considered as a plan for the immediate future around 1380 in Flanders and northern France, and in England in the Peasants' Revolt of 1381. Froissart repeats a sermon attributed to John Ball: "They [the lords] have beautiful residences and manors, while we have the trouble and the work, always in the fields under rain and snow. But it is from us and our labour that everything comes, with which they maintain their pomp. Good folk, things cannot go well in England nor ever shall until all things are in common and there is neither villein nor noble, but all of us are of one condition." Power and wealth came under general attack; partly on theological grounds concerning their threat to salvation, partly emanating from a less spiritual injunction to revolt by a lower clergy eager to assume the role of divinely inspired prophets. Cohn adds that "it must really have seemed that all things were being made new, that all social norms were dissolving and all barriers collapsing ... Certainly it was a situation in which it must have been easy enough to proclaim and to believe that the path lay wide open to an egalitarian, even a communistic millenium" (Cohn 1962: 216).
The construction of utopias, past or present, here on earth, is a process to which the upper orders can give only limited approval. The church hierarchy attempted to solve the contradictions of the dualism by looking in the opposite direction, by searching for a synthesis. The architect of this construction was St Thomas Aquinas. The synthesis incorporated classical foundations: "The Catholic ideal of economical life finds condensed expression in the principles of the Gospels, which were elaborated successively by St Paul, the Fathers, and the Doctors till ... St Thomas Aquinas, prince of Catholic philosophers, grafted Catholic principles on the old, all but forgotten trunk of Aristotelianism" (Fanfani 1935 : 119). Aquinas created a complete and consistent conception of a Christian universe in which human law was a part of the system of divine law. The system contained three parts, a hierarchy of knowledge, a hierarchy of nature, and human society, "a system of ends and purposes in which the lower serves the higher and the higher directs and guides the lower". Following Aristotle, Aquinas described society as a mutual exchange of services for the sake of a good life. Many callings contribute to it, the farmer and artisan by supplying material goods, the priest by prayer and religious observance, each class by doing its own proper work, "rulership is an office or trust for the whole community. Like his lowest subject the ruler is justified in all that he does solely because he contributes to the common good" (Sabine 1951 : 219).
Human society is governed by the same principles of reason and order that permeate the whole universe, principles of which human law is a manifestation. "Since all things which are subject to divine providence are measured and regulated by the external law ... it is clear that all things participate to some degree in the external law ... This participation in the eternal law by rational creatures is called the natural law" (D'Entrèves 1970: 115). Human law derives from eternal law and the ruler is as bound by it as is his subject. The power of the ruler, if it is just, is the power needed to maintain the common good, no more. This notion of sufficiency is applied also to property and to wealth. They are provided and justified by need.
"Material goods are provided for the satisfaction of human needs. Therefore the division and appropriation of property, which proceeds from human law, must not hinder the satisfaction of man's necessity from such goods. Equally, whatever a man has in superabundance is owed, of natural right, to the poor for their sustenance .... But because there are many in necessity, and they cannot all be helped from the same source, it is left to the initiative of individuals to make provision from their own wealth, for the assistance of those who are in need ... [But] if a person is in immediate danger of physical privation, and there is no other way of satisfying his need, - then he may take what is necessary from another person's goods, either openly or by stealth. Nor is this, strictly speaking, fraud or robbery." (D'Entrèves 1970 : 171)
Aquinas stressed the virtue of civil obedience but allowed that if tyranny went beyond the point where it threatened the free moral nature of the subordinate, the subordinate had a right to resist it. In modern times we might say that Aquinas conceived of society as a closed system in stable equilibrium. He regarded Christian society as eternal and the universal application of his theory with its interdependent and interlocking parts reinforced any tendency within it to resist change. Aquinas was concerned "to construct a rational scheme of God, nature, and man within which society and civil authority find their due place. In this sense his philosophy expresses most maturely the convictions, moral and religious upon which mediaeval civilization was founded" (Sabine 1951 : 225).
Mediaeval civilization was founded on an agricultural economy and its society for the most part was composed of small, local, self-sufficient communities. But local villages and farms could not, in times of great disorder, be self-sufficient for the purpose of the protection of life and property, and a relatively weak central government was prevented by primitive communications from exercising a policing function. In the circumstances the weak had to seek the defence of the strong; a hierarchical system of landowning was reflected in a system of protective dependency and of obligation, service was returned for protection and the system extended from the king to the serf. At the bottom of the system various services and dues went to the lord of the manor - merchet in payment for getting a daughter married, chevage for permission to leave the manor, week-work of two to three days a week on the lord's land. These activities which once might have been voluntary, had been turned by long practice into customary and therefore unquestionable obligations. Some of these obligations tended to preserve the stability of the system. The villein could not sell or exchange his land and needed his lord's consent to sell his cattle. He would also seek his lord's agreement before his children could enter holy orders or take up a trade.
The network of obligations, rights, and protections ran through the whole society. The economic relationships were such as to stress not effort or zeal or initiative, but the simple performance of obligations. Work was necessary in order to ensure the survival of the family, and as a kind of tax due to the lord. There could be little point in working harder or more productively because, as the market economy was rudimentary, there would be nothing to do with a surplus. The taskmaster was, as is always the case with those at work on the land, not so much a man as nature itself; what was done had to be done according to a rhythm dictated by the natural cycle.
But there was a primitive management system, and in it the subordinate exercised a measure of control. The management of the strips of land cultivated by the village was communally exercised. The management of the lords' demesnes, at least the largest of them, was conducted by officials who superintended the farming of vassals and tenants. The chief official was the bailiff, the lord's man, but he was assisted by the reeve. The duties of the two officers were sometimes confused and they were often amalgamated but the reeve was sometimes a representative of the peasants, chosen from among them from a list which they might have nominated; he was not necessarily a free man.
The economic structure was an expression of Aquinas's view that society was "a mutual exchange of services for the sake of a good life ... The common good requires that such a system shall have a ruling part, just as the soul rules the body". The functioning of such a system would depend upon obedience, on the correct carrying out of duties, upon respect for custom and constituted authority, virtues emphasized by the early Christian fathers. It was a society which might last forever - as long as it did not change.
But in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries it did change. Lords of the manor found that wage-labour paid them better than the services provided for them by peasants, so the lords began to take annual payments in the place of the services. The villeins often left for work in towns or for wage work on other demesnes, severing their feudal obligations by a payment or, simply, by absconding. "By the 1370's and 1380's great lords in most places were finding it an unsupportable burden to administer the old 'manorial system'. It was difficult when the price of produce was low to pay for a whole system of bailiffs, reeves and servile workers ... labour was hard to get; expensive if it had to be bought, and unobtainable if the old cheap labour services were demanded. Men simply ran away" (Du Boulay 1970 : 54). In order to retain those peasants who remained, the lords made concessions, relieving them of many of the customary personal obligations. Nabholtz suggests that, by the beginning of the fourteenth century, half the dependent "cultivators were free. Sometimes the lord gave over the whole of his demesne for complete cultivation by peasants in return for rents, fixed payments in place of the old obligation. In this way the lord not only got the money that he wanted, but he saved the expense of officials by leaving everything to the tenant. If the tenant paid regularly, his lord no longer worried about the details of his farming" (in Clapham and Power 1941 : 511).
Work could begin to be taken seriously, particularly as markets began to develop. Nabholtz argues that it was becoming both possible and worth-while for the tenant to put more work into his own holding because increasing mobility made it easier for him to sell his surplus produce in a town market; the transition from a self-sufficient to an exchange economy was taking place. With the growth of markets and a money economy came new cleavages in the old stable social order. Trevelyan (1944: 10) describes the filling-in of the great distance that separated the land and the villein: "Indeed the villein serf is in process of extinction. He is becoming a yeoman farmer, or else a landless labourer. And between these two classes enmity is now set. The peasantry are divided among themselves as employers and employed".
Between 1348 and 1368 change was tragically accelerated by the Black Death, which, in an economy experiencing falling wages, contributed a labour shortage and a rise in wages of up to fifty per cent. In consequence conflict of interest between lords and peasants led to an attempt to control prices and incomes. An ordinance of 1350 said that the labour shortage had led to demands for excessive wages which it pegged to the level of 1346. Like most attempts at an incomes policy it was unsuccessful and like some more recent attempts it may have made things worse; wages "rose highest, not immediately after the plague, but in the fifties and sixties. So the stiffening of the law had results exactly opposite to what was intended" (Clapham and Power 1941 : 515). In a situation of inherent advantage to the peasantry the lords were attempting to restore crumbling feudal structures and to reinforce their own position.
There is great debate about the causes of the Peasants' Revolt of 1381 but it succeeded widespread protest and violence, by labourers against the suppression of wages, by villein farmers against irksome feudal restrictions, by townsmen seeking greater municipal liberties, by parish priests against the power of the church. Feudal society, in which each man's position was carefully prescribed and in which the prescription was given the authority of theological doctrine, was being subjected to considerable stress. To the pressures of economic change, revolt, and plague two new movements added their weight: "the first, the subject between 1485 and 1640 of twelve statutes, seven Royal Commissions, and endless pamphleteering, concerned the tenure of land. The second ... related to credit and was described as that of usury" (Tawney 1925 : 19).
The problem of land tenure concerned the enclosure of land for sheep-farming. The effects of enclosure may have been exaggerated, even in contemporary accounts. [1] One reason for doubting the extent of the movement up to Tudor times is that so much land remained to be enclosed in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. But, "the amount of noise made over economic and social change is determined, not by the extent and importance of the changes that actually occur, but by the reaction of contemporary opinion to the problem." (Trevelyan 1944 : 117) And the reaction was vociferous. Here, for example, is Sir Thomas More (Utopia : 24):
"Therefore that on covetous and unsatiable cormaraunte and very plage of his natyve contrey maye compasse aboute and inclose many thousand akers of grounde together within one pale or hedge, the husbandmen be thrust owte of their owne ... For one Shephearde or Heardman is ynough to eate up that grounde with cattel, to the occupiyng whereof about husbandrye manye handes were requisite. And this is also the cause why victualles be now in many places dearer. Yea, besides this the price of wolle is so rysen, that poore folkes, which were wont to worke it, and make cloth thereof, be nowe hable to bye none at all ... And though the number of shepe increase never so faste, yet the price falleth not one myte, because there be so fewe sellers. For they be almooste all comen into a fewe riche mennes handes, whome no neade forceth to sell before they lust, and they luste not before they maye sell as dcare as they luste."
Attitudes and practice concerning both enclosure and usury were confused. The outcry against both was considerable but both were widely practised and for different purposes. The enclosure of arable or common land for sheep pasture was detested but some enclosure was carried out by peasants to bring about a more rational distribution of their open field strips. Usury, the making of money out of money without an advantage to both parties, was proscribed by theological doctrine, but lending was necessary to maintain a rudimentary economy and the lenders were often yeomen. But the extension of practices which were condemned led to wider social acceptance, a diminished doctrinal attack, and, finally, to the incorporation of practice in preaching: old ideologies cannot survive new worlds. To begin with, "to live by usury as the husbandman doth by his husbandry" had commonly been treated as ignominious, immoral, or positively illegal: when it evolved, money-lending was on the way to enjoying the legal security of a recognized and reputable profession. But the change itself was part of a larger revolution which
"set a naturalistic political arithmetic in the place of theology, substituted the categories of mechanism for those of theology and turned religion itself from the master interest of mankind into one department of life with boundaries which it is extravagant to overstep ... the issue at stake was not merely the particular question, but the fate of the whole scheme of medieval economic thought which had attempted to treat economic affairs as part of a hierarchy of values embracing all human interests and activities, of which the apex was religion." (Tawney 1925 : 106)
The question was determined neither quickly nor decisively. The distinction between preaching and practice survived for a long time, as it always does.
"In the matter of trade ... canon law in the early twelfth century still spoke of it as an occupation scarcely compatible with Christianity. But as the growing needs of society produced more elaborate forms of commercial organization, the ecclesiastical lawyers began to have other thoughts. They modified some principles and interpreted others until a large field was cleared for commercial enterprise, and the restrictions that remained were largely ignored or circumvented." (Southern 1970 : 40)
There is an inescapable danger of settling this particular issue summarily by simply concluding that the feudal system gave way to the development of a market economy in preparation for the emergence of capitalism. Any such perfunctory simplifications must be qualified by the understanding that the changes so described developed over some four hundred years, were the result of a variety of enormous and complex social forces, and are the subject of considerable disagreement among specialist historians. The middle ages did not come to an end abruptly and there is a wide range of emphasis over the characteristics which marked significant change. Sombart "if he were forced to give a single date for the beginning of modern capitalism ... would choose 1202, the year in which appeared the "Liber Abbaci" a primer of commercial arithmetic" (Heilbroner 1968 : 55f); Spengler emphasized the invention of double-entry bookkeeping in 1494; Tawney concentrated upon changes in the sixteenth century as marking the "rise of capitalism". It is easy to oversimplify. There is a danger of suggesting that the Aquinian objection to usury and to trade as base "in that it has not of itself any honest or necessary object" was briskly overcome by the protestant ethic. We shall follow this argument in the next chapter but it is worth remembering that Catholic theologians in France, well into the eighteenth century, continued to thunder that usury was "a vice detested by God and condemned by the Church", that usury is "a species of robbery and derives from it as a stream from its source" (Groethuysen 1968 : 202, 203)
Change on this scale is the result (if that is not, already, too deterministic a conclusion) of a conjunction of a variety of forces which themselves took hundreds of years to develop. The scale of events is not that of ordinary history but must be compared with the change from one geological period to its successor; a change so slow that it cannot be perceived, but which undeniably took place because the world was transformed by it. The reduction of Europe's population by plague contributed to the end of feudalism because it encouraged the commutation of feudal services for money, which itself helped to promote a money economy and the development of free labour (and, therefore, of the concept of labour itself). These changes encouraged changes in agriculture which are summarized in the movement for enclosure. The development of a money economy was assisted by increasing supplies of gold and silver from German and Austrian mines and by the influx of treasure following Spanish conquests in the New World. These conquests indirectly assisted the independence and commercial freedom of the Low Countries which was to help "to make Antwerp the base for financial operations of unexampled magnitude and complexity" (Tawney 1948: 84). On a lesser scale the development of towns demanded and made profitable the organization of markets and the growth of industries. At the same time the protectionist attitude of the towns to "foreign" trade "forced the territorial State to the fore as the instrument of 'nationalization' of the market and the creator of internal commerce ... Deliberate action of the state in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries foisted the mercantile system on the fiercely protectionist towns and principalities" (Polanyi 1944 : 65).
Positive forces of development may help to explain the transformation of the mediaeval world; negative forces of decay may help to explain its decline. There is some argument among historians as to whether the later middle ages were poor or prosperous. The disagreement seems partly to be resolved by a tendency for English historians to concentrate upon expansion and for French historians to dwell upon decline after the Hundred Years' War, but a less chauvinistic explanation suggests that both development and decline were taking place in different regions at the same time. Mediaeval Europe certainly suffered from a sequence of cataclysms which might have been enough in themselves to end one world in preparation for the development of the next: "from the beginning or second quarter of the fourteenth century until the second quarter or middle of the fifteenth, a series of disasters occurred which led the economy and society through many crises towards the forms which they assumed in modern times". Du Boulay (1970 : 170-2) goes on to catalogue these disasters following the plagues:
"There were deadly famines causing villages to be abandoned by the thousand ... Cultivated land which had been won from waste and woodlands by centuries of effort, reverted to fallow and pasture. The Bordeaux vineyards exported only a tenth of their early fourteenth century production. The countryside was continually overrun by bands of adventurers ... There were sudden peasant risings sparked off by distress, an unmistakable stiffening of the exploitation of the peasants by the lords and a continual fall in agricultural prices. Industries declined or disappeared ... trading or banking companies failed, the currency was debased and monetary stocks exhausted."
It is not our purpose to attempt some superficial explanation or summary of mediaeval economic history because such an attempt would be ridiculous and ill-informed. It is necessary, on the other hand, to take some account of descriptions of changes in the economic background of the middle ages which transformed a stable agricultural society so that a "naturalistic political arithmetic" came to replace theology.
"When the age of the Reformation begins, economics is still a branch of ethics, and ethics of theology; all human activities are treated as falling within a single scheme, whose character is determined by the spiritual destiny of mankind; the appeal of theorists is to natural law, not to utility; the legitimacy of economic transactions is tried by reference, less to the movements of markets, than to moral standards derived from the traditional teaching of the Christian Church." (Tawney 1948 : 272)
The destruction of this transcendence of spiritual over economic values and of the emergence of a high regard for the virtues of work will occupy us in the next chapter. During our excursion into mediaeval economic history, precious little has been said about work. This is because, as with the Greeks, there is very little available concerning the attitudes to work adopted by any level of society, by lords, or guildsmen, or peasants. There is a great deal about the content of work, about the extent of week-work, about artisans' changes of occupation at harvest time, about food, drink, and clothing. But there is no evidence of an ideology.
The explanation lies in the ground that has been covered. It grows out of St Thomas's doctrine of the harmony of the Christian commonwealth in which every class did its own "proper work". The social, political, and spiritual system are harmonious as long as each member plays the part allotted to him. No aspect of human affairs could be isolated for special attention, especially one which, at the base of a theological system and still carrying Aristotelian connotations of contempt, seemed furthest from spirituality. The Church had elevated work and the worker from the base position accorded to him by Aristotle, but there were limits to how seriously they should be taken. The worker might contribute to the mutual exchange of services for the sake of a good life, but the good life was the end and it was not to be measured in ergonomic or economic terms. The church developed a new doctrine of the importance of work but strictly as an instrument of spiritual purpose. The Benedictine rule emphasized the spiritual danger of idleness and ordered regular work at fixed times of the day in order to reduce it. The church also recommended labour as a penance on good scriptual authority emanating from man's fall. Work was a discipline, it contributed to the Christian virtue of obedience. It was not seen as noble, or rewarding, or satisfying, its very endlessness and tedium were spiritually valuable in that it contributed to Christian resignation. The distinction between labour as a spiritual discipline and labour as a means was made clearly by Groote in the fourteenth century, "labour is wonderfully necessary to mankind in restoring the mind to purity ... Labour is holy, but business is dangerous" (Southern 1970 : 348).
Work was not a special subject, it was a part of the general social and spiritual framework. Work was done out of necessity, because it was ordered so by a natural cycle and by God. The popular agitations of the time were probably not radical in any contemporary sense and did not aim at a different order in which workers would take a different place: "to be told that social disorders take place because an envious proletariat aims at seizing the property of the rich would seem to them a very strange perversion of the truth. They want only to have what they have always had. They are conservatives, not radicals or levellers, and to them it seems that all the trouble arises, because the rich have been stealing the property of the poor" (Tawney 1912 : 333).
Until the speed of economic change became so great as to carry all along with it, until it revealed the irrelevance of traditional doctrine and demanded the construction of a new ideology, the agitators could draw support from their betters. They could ask for the assistance of authority because authority was under attack and authority could respond with a passionate defence of the poor (like Sir Thomas More) or with attempts to slow down the rate of change (by acts against enclosure). Both reformers and conservatives had custom and authority on their side; "In the middle of the sixteenth century the English peasants accepted the established system of society with its hierarchy of authorities and division of class functions, and they had a most pathetic confidence in the crown" (Tawney 1912 : 339).
What we have done so far is to sketch out a background which, as it includes the distinct civilizations and histories of Greece, Roman an mediaeval Europe, contains many different and irreconcilable features. But it is possible to speak of some kind of cultural inheritance which related the three. Roman culture borrowed heavily from Greek; translated Greek theology and employed Greek teachers. Christian doctrine and mediaeval theory looked back to Roman law and to Aristotle. And there was an element noticeably absent through this development, an element which we cannot imagine as separate from our own outlook; economic calculation, the concept of material value, its production and measurement.
There always have been economic men, of course. The Roman empire was a monument to material acquisition and display. But perhaps what divided the Greeks and the Romans was that Greeks did not care about what they did not have, and Romans did not have to care about what they had (by conquest) in such abundance.

  • Day 315.3 Three Dead Bodies in the Potomac on Water Street - YouTube
    • Well hi everybody walking to court if I spend one more day here in Virginia when I consider Virginia I'm gonna be talking like Dred Scott
    • I'm find in my inner soul--my mother's from Birmingham
    • So I get near the south her accent starts coming out--she'd make me all those grits and all that stuff
    • So a little bit that's coming out here in Virginia
    • So I can't help it I I'm a mimic in a lot of ways
    • Not in reporting unfortunately there's nobody who wants to copy what I do
    • But in an accent it certainly does come out
    • So I'm just walking these electric skateboards are quite impressive they go straight up the street
    • It's always kind of funny seeing a kid go that fast uphill on a skateboard
    • But walk into court and it's it's funny how right before the hour or the striking of the clock at the twelve, I get all the messages saying "don't you understand don't you get it the three dead bodies the three dead bodies in the Potomac--Water Avenue that's where you were broadcasting from those three days in a row when you were preparing the motion don't you connect that to width you're doing now don't you get it's a threat"
    • I don't know I still don't know who knows maybe a lot of people jump in the water there
    • I don't know I don't want to presuppose that
    • But I go back to Jill Kelly, but I look across that Tampa Bay
    • What do I see when I look across that Tampa Bay? I see 20,000 CENTCOM messages 20,000 in a bottle messages in a bottle all floating out there
    • 20,000 of CENTCOM messages think we got another little tip with Andre, saying that maybe some of those Blackberries had military markings
    • And that's why he turned them in, and he's a military man and a military man with no military markings
    • So that I thought was interesting that was a nice little pointer a nice little breadcrumb potentially at the CENTCOM emails
    • The CENTCOM emails that maybe on Imran's server that then end up at the Clinton Foundation
    • Don't forget Bravermans coming back into this thing
    • Braverman was the one who called BS on the pay-to-play
    • Braverman is the one who got the FBI involved
    • The story is coming back to Braverman, but anyway everyone's saying don't you get it it's a threat Pennsylvania Avenue may be a little bit noisy
    • So I might go down and one one for
    • So yeah I get it I get it
    • But they would have to fill up they would have to fill up the Potomac with dead bodies like Jill Kelley filled up Tampa Bay with CENTCOMM messages
    • There would have to be 20,000 bodies out there in that Potomac before I didn't go to court today not gonna happen
    • There's one way to stop it throw me in the Potomac too but there is no choice no choice we have no choice
    • Now interestingly enough this is a good story I had breakfast I sat next to two people from the National Archives
    • And I said sandy Berger finally got that story right
    • And they said I said where did you go yeah yeah they worked there the woman sitting there worked there she lived in DC the guys sitting there living in Maryland worked there was
    • Both were working there at the time that he took the documents with this stuffed in his pants
    • Now what I didn't know this shows you how far the deep state or whatever the I don't really think it's a deep state I think it's just an Admirals Club it's gonna turn out to be the same Admirals Club in Chinatown whatever that Club was twelve twelve Joint Chiefs of Staff retired and active all saying well we really should be able to have the spoils of war
    • We are generals we should be able to share in the spoils of war
    • They don't call it all at what it is the ratlines
    • We should be able to share in the spoils of war
    • Well Okay. what are those was war we're getting back to them Sandy Berger
    • I said I don't what was he taking and both of them said I don't know maybe he's just a dumbass
    • But then what the guy said that it's like you would just go into the archives pick out some random documents, shove them in your pants, seven eight times however many times you did, just for fun!
    • That's what they would have us believe that's what this DoD spoils war operation would like to have us believe
    • When somebody does go in and do your dirty work there's nothing to see here he was just doing it because he's a dumbass
    • He's not covering up a crime he's just a dumb ass how idiotic is that logic?
    • There's the capital
    • So we're going to court
    • Everybody says well why don't you get the court a little sooner like what sit around look at each other
    • What good is that? What good is that?
    • So anyway this little Club this little Navy Club
    • I'm not talking about mr. doyen who died serving his country or the 99.99% of people that serve their country and don't know what the hell is in those food containers that are going in and outside of the Navy Yard or the National Harbor
    • It's just a special food for whatever diabetic or what however the hell they label them
    • Most food inspectors they pull those off
    • Oh got a little car accident on the way to the courtroom
    • Let let me just be real clear you're gonna have to fill up that Potomac with bodies to keep me away from this Court
    • Okay? Just letting you know I know your game part
    • That's pissing you off--I'm talking to the Admirals of Foxtrotting Yankees Right Now
    • Part you don't like about this because I'm saying exactly how it is
    • This Imran a1 and the little gang you brought in was brought in to protect your little game
    • Because you figure it's spoils of war--you worked hard for this--you came up the ladder--this is spoils of war--that's just the way Andrew Jackson said it--to the victor go the spoils
    • What you don't realize is there's lots of Huma suffering out there
    • Now your spoils of war are ratlines
    • Your spoils of war our dark weapons weapons in general inner ordnance in Florida--weapons in general but then dark weapons really horrible weapons DU
    • Three billion years is enough time to spoil any battlefield WP weapons bur Walla's face off that's nice
    • It causes desertion that's why they liked that weapon so much it causes desertion
    • That's just one ratline as long as we were there we had the UAE Minister just a couple days ago describe how child marriage is not a violation
    • Not a violation! Thirteen year olds fourteen year olds
    • The ambassador to the United States from the UAE! is drawing up paperwork about how thirteen year olds and fourteen year olds are of sound and mind and body to make a decision about getting married and going to another country to live with a sheikh, because that's a part of our religion
    • That's not a part of your religion
    • That's just a rationalization for your "spoils of war"
    • Oh well we're gonna have these people they're they're growing crops (I'm outside the courthouse so don't worry)
    • They're going to grow some crops
    • They can't maintain a subsistence growing what they've grown for two thousand years, so we got to teach them how to grow a cash crop
    • We got to teach them how to go cash crop we're gonna teach them how to grow opium
    • The latest statistics we've got and this is mr. Hudson deep uranium whatever you want to call him all those guys hundreds of years over in that theater of war say that for opium production is a 48% higher this year than it was last year which was an all-time record high
    • All-time record high!
    • Interdiction you you feel like figure more traffic you can have more interdiction no no
    • It's down 27% interdictions down 27%
    • Opium production up 48% from a record high from a record high
    • Sounds like somebody's sleeping at the switch it's what it sounds like
    • It sounds like we've let our little spy ring and our little spoils of war game, along with our Foxtrotting Yankees got a little out of control
    • They need to turn it down a little bit turn it down
    • I know I'm yelling I know I'm yelling I'm on Pennsylvania Avenue it's busy
    • So what this is about today it's not just about a spy ring
    • I know it's not just about a spy ring I know it's not about bank fraud that's for sure
    • The prosecution has us over here in the weeds
    • Prosecution has us here picking this up while somebody's dying of a heart attack right over here
    • Actually prosecution has us right here growing wheat germ worried about the wheat germ, when there's a spy ring going on right there
    • It's a spy ring going on in that capital, but it's not just the spy ring isn't just because it's a spy ring because people like stealing secrets it's to protect the game this little Navy game
    • So dark Navy game
    • Now everybody hates me because they don't they won't want somebody messing with their dark navy game
    • They're gonna throw a few people in the Potomac
    • Well you could have to throw one more
    • So today I'm not going in to hurt Imran Awan or Hina Alvi like I said I want them to go home they want to choose to be here they have to answer our laws I know he has diplomatic passport he can leave any time he wants what I'm here to do is get to that game get to that game
    • Because the game of these Foxtrotting Yankees I think they've served their country
    • So well and they deserve the spoils of war, they don't overrule that
    • That's the people's house that's the house
    • That's on fire right now that's the house that still still has the spy ring
    • Still to this day Tuesday up until Tuesday still active with secret account
    • We don't know what got sent out
    • The prosecution has this data has this data already had its fingertips it's letting it slip through their fingers
    • The prosecution has been neglectful the prosecution has obstructed
    • Now it's the prosecution's turn to take a rest
    • The prosecution here should rest permanently, and let somebody step in the shoes as a private attorney general
    • That will prosecute this case robustly
    • The evidence is there there's a 20-page report imagine that capital being plastered with twenty pages
    • That says that describes the burglary that we're going to hear about inside
    • Did the prosecution bring up the burglary? No!
    • The reports right there right in the front front steps it's right there all I had to do is just pick it up it's right there at their fingertips
    • Imran Awan ordered one hundred fifty iPhones and iPads to his home instead of to the Capitol
    • Did the prosecution do anything with that? No! They let it slip through their fingers just said well that's not important
    • All this evidence has come up about illegal email to the most sensitive subcommittees in our government our key liaison our key liaison between that Capitol and the DoD
    • Playing video games with an a member of the emerging threats committee that oversees the Office of Defense of National Intelligence, which covers our 17 Intelligence agencies
    • The prosecution bring that up? No no the prosecution wants us over here in the weeds they want us tending the weeds in the garden rather than that house it's on fire
    • And that's the people's house
    • So here we go
    • I actually got up this morning to come out here to see ya.
  • Day 315.4 Meeting Imran - YouTube
    • Okay. Everyone just finished here at the 333 Constitution Avenue
    • Did a livestream with Jason just now and I thought for my channel I would just get everybody up to speed
    • Met Imran I was about an hour I would guess the court proceedings were about an hour
    • My motion was denied on law there was only two cases out there and the judge struck it down saying I couldn't cross that gap between civil law and criminal law for rule 24
    • I had kind of anticipated that, and I had prepared a second argument which is the equity thing
    • She did not consider that motion because that motion had not been entered by the time the court convened
    • So so the next date is October the fifth next time Imran entered a plea of not guilty
    • They tried to change his amount of Radius on his GPS system
    • I think you're going to consider that in writing and they'll probably get that which I hope he gets
    • I don't really care if he goes out 100 miles I just don't want him going to the Canadian border he probably wants to go to Florida, but I just think 100 miles is 150 miles for being an uber driver is enough
    • I don't want any real restrictions on Imran other than its current 10:00 p.m. curfew I think is enough we don't need him at 2:00 a.m. spend a 2 to 3 thousand bucks a night with all the diplomat friends as Luke has reported
    • So anyway Rosiak was down here he had a chance to come up and say thank you--didn't say a word
    • If you if you sense hard feelings there is because he left me hanging out to dry for a hundred days
    • And then now he's trying to call I don't know what off the record isn't well I was the one knocking on doors and breaking open the story for him and he's the one who that kept his story going with the with the BlackBerries
    • Which makes it a real case which makes it a spy ring in Congress which is the only thing that matters
    • Getting Imran convicted on a banking charge and having you pay a fine does nothing
    • So all that all this is for naught if we don't go for the spy ring in Congress, because it is a spy ring in Congress
    • So I'm a little bit pissed off Luke had a chance to come up to me shake my hand say thanks for the lead thanks for keeping this story going he didn't do it
    • I would have apologized at that point and said hey I'm sorry I exposed Andre's number
    • But remember that was a hundred days that was a hundred days after I was being called people were saying I made up the Taggart interview I made up the Blackberries I made up the smashed hard drives I made up the marine on the on the front porch I made up the Abbas and Ranna come into the back door I made up the shipments going to that location the Hawks head location I made all that stuff up right?
    • All of it came true with Andre Taggarts interview
    • And so I thought hey with him having seen the Taggart interview, he would come over and he would say hey wow you nailed it, and I blew it
    • I should have called him that night
    • And I should have had this story where it is now finally a hundred days ago but he didn't
    • So 120 days actually because he didn't say Andre Taggarts name until this week until this week
    • And I also think by socializing this case other people who have been duped by Imran can now see his picture and now are aware that they have been duped and then they can come forward to the prosecution
    • That's how we got the second secret email the second secret email was a landlady who filed a small claims claim against Imran for some part of a air conditioner in October of last year
    • That's how we got the one two three mail gov address
    • This is the people's case if the people's just come forward with small leads like that small breadcrumbs like that we will build this case
    • We will force the prosecution I offered service to Mirando I offered service to Stephenson as they walked by the attorneys they basically had a marshal in the way would not accept service
    • So all along the way the prosecution has let key evidence just slip through their fingers slip through the fingers and then tried to suppress other key evidence, like the number of passports
    • Just happened today
    • So anyway that's the update meeting Imran face to face he looked at me I looked at him
    • I had kind eyes for him I wanted him just take a diplomatic passport go home you don't have to pay any fine just flip all the information about this firing and just flip all the information about this spy ring in Congress
    • And then be on your way
    • Maldives have as many drinks as you want
    • But give us the information about the spy ring in Congress
    • So we can stop the spy ring in Congress right
    • Now there's his hand-picked surrogate Bravo boss in Congress still today she vetted by who Imran Awan not vetted by Mike McMahan not vetted by the FBI vetted by Imran and one that's still a spy ring in Congress to-day
    • How many other secret emails exist?
    • So that's the wrap here from three three three Hina Alvi has all he has her arraignment I believe at one o'clock
  • Day 315.5 Meet McDuff's Son - YouTube
    • Okay. I'm gonna just get right in here alright
    • So here we are live this is Macduff son. This is John
    • JOHN: Hi I'm John!
    • So he's a great Shakespearean actor in and of himself as well as a a baritone can you
    • JOHN: Now George I told you I was a bass oh right is it different see I learned as I go obviously
    • So
    • Now I know there's a difference between a bass that had a head a man a baritone C but George when we first talked on the first thing that happened to us is we fell into talking about Shakespeare and especially a Shakespearean opera such as those done by Verdi which has been my pleasure to to sing in in the past few years and there's an awful lot you can learn from Shakespeare and as well as you can learn a lot from Verdi -
    • So how look at how Shakespeare has been informative every step of the way right every step of the way Shakespeare and as well as the rest of English literature but I mean there's Iago with my McCain and I'm sorry Mike McCade there's all these villains in this thing the spy ring as well which is I don't know which which romeo-juliet would be the spy ring the Capulets of them I don't know oh I don't know there's some spies in Hamlet - I'm spies in Hamlet yeah spies in Hamlet all right
    • Now what's your favorite and
    • Now if for all those who don't know who Macduff is Macduff was the guy that Kennedy that's my name for him Kennedy wanted to pick out this kind of Irish kitchen cabinet that would get something done right
    • So he hired all these Irishmen to go change Washington and one of the guys to clean up the CIA was John's father which I have never named his last name but he was obviously very important in trying to clean up clean up the CIA breaking into a thousand pieces this was Kennedy's man you wanted to say a little bit about him well sure and my father's name is not a great secret but I do love the idea of referring to him like George does as Macduff I think it isn't an inspirational character and I think that my father was a very inspirational man sadly his life was cut short in 1971 with a sudden onset of of cancer which took him from us when I was 18 years old
    • So the the time we had him with him was was limited but and of course he was a complete FBI through and through g-man through it through through and through that's that's why George calls me FBI John because I grew up as an FBI kid out in suburban Maryland and you're also an attorney
    • Now you came to the trial today well yes indeed I mean I I was in the courtroom today that I had probably been in twenty years ago when I was an active trial lawyer since since then I'm out in Maryland and semi-retired still do a little bit of legal work here and there but anyway what did you think of Imran Awad I thought that Imran Iran was an awesome looking gentleman a person whose character I think is is very strong and deeply rooted of course we didn't hear him speak but in in a way I think he makes a very attractive appearance yeah I mean he's definitely gonna be and they're gonna say look I didn't understand the laws I made I shipped some money I felt pressure I I didn't know what I was doing I blah blah blah and they are going away from the spy ring thing it was 150 180 degrees can I ask a question George well let's refer back to the earlier case which is the theft of the computer equipment from the 20 members of Congress right
    • Now is he not implicated in that there's a report right over there was with the who did the 20 burglaries and what was stolen and that prosecution has decided to let that slip through their fingers and I believe that is very germane to this case well here's here's the point that I would say is that number one
    • In the Imran Awan and Hina Alvi case there is an allegation that there's a conspiracy
    • So the idea that this is a conspiracy theory is out the window right we
    • Now have a real conspiracy what George I think you're trying to do is to explore and to air in the sunlight the true nature and extent of this conspiracy
    • Now if this conspiracy that we've looked at this morning is attached in any way to the conspiracy of these 20 different which obviously is a conspiracy because there's 20 different office offices involved
    • So if those things are connected then I think the American people have got to really wake up and take a hard look at this situation yeah and I suspect that they are yeah and then we also have the Credit Union investigation where the guy resigned the previous guy resigned the person who did both reports for the credit union investigation as well as the 20 burglaries is the same guy a guy named Kalyan James Kalyan
    • So he doesn't have he has no vested interest in coming forward and daylighting these documents all all my emotions do the first motion and the second motion is just daylight the documents that already exists George you're doing everything a Huma being possibly can without hiring a huge law firm I mean if you've got the bucks we've got law firms this is DC Okay. for a man to go out there on his own and to fight like you're fighting right here I mean that to me is the American spirit and I applaud you yeah well thank you we're getting it applaud from a no-tell oh I mean a tour doctor faustus did you ever play doctor faustus I have not played doctor faustus no Okay. you played the doctor in Hamlet though well the doctors in in a number of operas the we basis get to either be doctors or villains
    • So uh the doctor in travail oughtta is one of my favorite and the doctor in dr. Julia I haven't done that the doctor in Macbeth Macbeth and but of course I also like to be a bad guy likes paruppu qi they in Rigoletto yeah but you also can doctor things up me the doctor back then it was always the apothecary stirring up some kind of thing to make somebody drug rape somebody oh well I don't do that no no I know that's not you
    • So I just wanted everyone to meet Macduff's son and if you don't know the thing at the end where we're trying to make Washington a good place again after all the troubles and travails and double double toil and trouble and all that and all the backstabbing and killing we're trying to make it a better place and we say lead on Macduff George I want to show you one thing while we're on walk out on this video and that's right here I don't know if you can see this on my phone on my hand here wrong hint bat hand you see that that's a ring he's called a special-forces Star Sapphire rune and this was something that was given to my father by all I know is a bunch of guys and this is his ring I brought it today to wish you good luck - wow that's amazing thank you very much that's very heartfelt I do want to say if you don't know the story of Macduff the real that are are Macduff Navy graduate Harvard football decides at that point I'm not going to take a job on Wall Street and a big bank firm I'm gonna come down to Columbia and they this quick training this what they call 90-day wonders well it was Columbia Midshipmen school of which he was the regimental commander of the 10th class graduating in February of 1943 and then shipped right out on to the USS Nashville into the island-hopping campaign with General MacArthur and the Leyte Gulf campaign
    • So just to finish this off my dad was in that same theater in Bougainville and and new Georgia and also Guadalcanal
    • So your dad's Navy ship was I supplying my dad when he was in the Army they're not exactly my dad's Navy ship was supplying the Japanese with a whole lot of ordnance yeah the Nashville was the tell me tell us about the National real quick well the USS Nashville lost CL 43 was the flagship of what is called MacArthur's Navy also known
    • Now as the 7th fleet
    • So regardless Navy that was in the MacArthur's flagship yeah and didn't they get did it get hit yes sir it hit a lot yeah well it did when it got hit he got hit really bad and your dad did kamikaze we've June dad did they what do you call it was the damage control your dad yeah my father was was was a lieutenant who was
    • So one of the damage control officers at the time when the kamikaze attack occurred you can read about that online a USS nashville kamikaze attack and you'll see that there was a hundred and thirty american sailors that were killed in that attack and I think about a hundred others that were severely wounded
    • So and the survivor's guilt that always seems to happen with damage control officers is that they never think about all the guys they say they always think about what if I had done that differently at that moment could I have saved that one guy or that one guy did he have any of that well my dad was with was the guy that would work well for instance once when we were little I would guess how seven or eight years old and some some neighbor had run a car into right into a telephone pole enemy it was a major accident my dad immediately ran into the house grabbed a blanket and ran to the scene with the blanket
    • So this is training you don't he didn't run to this accident without having that what he needed to make sure that this person didn't go into shock this is the kind of training that he had and that is the kind of reaction
    • So
    • Now you're gonna have an opportunity have a really great interview this is a street interview I'm a street reporter like I tell the judge like I tell everybody you could be on crowd source of truth later tonight with Jason I don't know I'm looking forward to meeting meeting Jason and hopefully uh showing them a little bit around my neck of the woods look she's right across at Colby's house in Maryland right well it's it is last canoe ride it's kind of freaky and yeah for my house if you step outside you can actually see we're about William Colby's residence was down in Southern Maryland were child I'll show Joyce Jason this evening
    • So so for for Karen camera interview really get into the JFK stuff tune in to crowdsource the truth tonight thanks everybody thanks John you're everyone thanks for coming out this morning oh thank you sir I appreciate everything you do and believe me I that ring thing you really made me feel great thank you all right everybody bye for
    • Now
  • Day 315.6 Blackberry Enterprise Server Controls It All - YouTube
    • Ok everybody we're back with our technical expert this is Chris Hughes correct Chris I and you are in Maryland but you work here in DC right yeah as a contractor your IT decades right yeah okay
    • So you are a BlackBerry Enterprise Server expert and I'm sorry I'm getting rid of these don't worry about that you came to the trial today
    • You saw that Gateway pundit reported that there was a BlackBerry Enterprise Server at Imran's house we don't have confirmation of that from the actual equipment list yet from the from either NCIS or FBI or Capitol Police
    • But now this is all speculative but had he an BlackBerry Enterprise Server they are at his house would he what would that kind of control that give him over the email accounts?
    • Depending on how its configured the BlackBerry Enterprise Server is a think of it as a traffic cop or a hub where emails come through and route through to be put on the different networks
    • So he would be able to say, and we're gonna project a little bit because we're but he'd be able to say I want all your email to sync every time you get near a certain Wi-Fi hotspot right?
    • Yeah that's configurable as well as it depends when I say it depends how is configured that whether it was configured to log everything that was going through there's there's options on logging in we have to figure out how that thing was set up and what it was actually doing
    • Now the the counter-argument by the defense is oh well there's a secure network in Congress there's a secure network on the Senate side there's a secure Network on the house side--therefore these Congressmen will always be careful they never would send anything important on they would they're at lunch with a donor they're gonna run back to the Congress just send that email or are they going to use the phone that's in their hand?
    • So we got more of our friends in coming this way--I always give them a salute. If your right hand is occupied you can always salute with the left hand and that serves as a salute
    • So so what do you make of that argument the washing opposed to ask you that question about well what about the secure network that they have?
    • It's a matter of convenience I think we've seen that that's not always used for secure communications
    • Wouldn't it be an easy thing just to pull the server logs and just say let's see the server logs let's see what went back and forth to Pakistan let's look at the IP addresses let's just look at the forensics?
    • The logs would be key yes
    • The logs would be the first thing that prosecution would want to produce you would think right right because before a crime is committed you commit a crime and that don't mind, right?
    • Matter of fact I don't think you can be tried for a crime unless you also first think of it mensa reya or something like that if a person doesn't know they're committing a crime a person that limited Intelligence or whatever they are not guilty of it because they didn't think of it
    • Now the communications that come before a financial transfer are you thinking about it why wouldn't that prosecution make that communication available?
    • Well that and why wouldn't they present all any of the other evidence or the information that you found?
    • I mean it just wasn't there they limited that hearing just to the fraud charges
    • Now how about this issue of the 20 burgers in Congress have you ever been a part of an IT organization where there has been a theft
    • And there was a report written about it and to explain it and then a role in a full investigation yeah remediation and recommendations remediation
    • Yep a lot of times that's done behind the scenes but they're definitely they do have the investigation but this is a criminal case where we're deciding if a spy ring as in Congress or not
    • Wouldn't you want to daylight those kind of reports to make a sound decision the judge would would have to have those reports right?
    • So Okay. well
    • I want to thank Chris Hughes for coming out being at the trial as an expert witness Washington Post certainly talked to you a lot One American American network
  • Day 315.7 Appealing Carmichael Motion One - 50 Irons In the Fire - YouTube
    • Okay. back in Shawn Lucas's neighborhood you notice I say Shawn Lucas not Seth Rich keep reminding everybody at the SEIU fun house Clubhouse over there that case ain't closed yet
    • But anyway thoughts here I was talking to Jason and talking to Jon and talking to Chris
    • And they all kind of said the same thing like you got like 50 irons in the fire
    • You're all these different places and all these different irons in the fire all these angles the BlackBerry server the maids and Virginia the people up in Maryland the folks in DC down at this office to folks in DC over there at that office the BlackBerry server here the configuration of whatever
    • And the idea being that if you have 50 irons in the fire, something's always poppin
    • There's some little lead you never know I the Maryland are shooting the Northern Virginia cleaning lady or landlady in in Maryland not Maryland Virginia Alexandria Virginia is a classic example
    • She comes up with 1 2 3 at mail.house.gov and that cracks the case wide open
    • Now they still didn't publish Imran's picture which again hobbles the case this is prosecutorial misconduct
    • And as this case goes along our case or prosecutorial misconduct gets better and better
    • And it's not gonna be good
    • Now the first kid the first motion gets turned down by the judge
    • How did that get turned down?
    • Well she might have had it a day
    • She's got a full docket I'm sure she's busy she had to probably give it to a law clerk law clerk would have used it quickly they do case law look up
    • Maybe the higher to an attorney to government hired out somebody to do a review on it I haven't seen a written it was like Clapham gang or something in the Clapham gang her case we clearly ruled that you couldn't use criminal you use a civil rule for the criminal law clapping ganger versus so-and-so and then I started thinking
    • Do I want to slam the door, do I want to slam the door on journalists when they have something to add to a case when there is prosecutorial misconduct, do I want to... say this is new case law this is new case law just focus three different attorneys
    • This is new case law there's so little case law here that we're making new case law
    • So if nothing else nothing else we made new case law but I still think now I have a point which is the merits if you do have prosecutorial misconduct--now I'm saying there's gonna be a different test but if you do have prosecutor prosecutorial misconduct which is what we have in this case, why wouldn't you want the First Amendment to be employed?
    • Why wouldn't you want the press to intervene?
    • That's what Carmichael says the press can't intervene if it's in if you have merits that's what Carmichael says she just dismissed it out of hand that didn't consider the merits and the more I started thinking about this I thought about it in an hour now
    • But I was doing interviews it was kind of much occupying my mind
    • Now that I've had some time on the train just think about it
    • I'm thinking about it saying wait a minute I disagree
    • Now I respect a judge tremendously but I disagree in the ruling and I'm not sure that I just want to shut the door and slam the door in the journalists face when there's prosecutorial misconduct
    • If I hadn't been in this town for a month and seen what goes on here, I cannot believe I mean you everyone can yell at the TV when they're there at home but I've seen it
    • Now up close
    • This is a corrupt town this is using the taxpayers dollars for everything but the taxpayer
    • I mean I know that sounds trite it's easy to say in DC it's way worse than you think it is right
    • So you just have to come here from up and see it firsthand
    • So do one
    • So really I've seen maybe journalists are the only break left
    • They're the only check left there is no more checks and balances
    • There's only checks going out to their friends
    • There's no balances
    • The real checks that framers wanted is left now to the Fourth Estate
    • The Fourth Estate has become an organ for the DoD
    • Look at look at the PPTA look at for using GPS they're still talking about look at Mueller they're still talking about these things like they're real things
    • The GAO is considering Trump's travel receipts
    • So what I'm saying is do I want to take that right out of the out of journalists hands for all time, by not challenging this
    • If it's an incorrect interpretation of law and again it's not the judge it's some law clerk that has to make a quick decision before this thing goes to trial--maybe they did it this morning who knows the law clerk looked over it for an hour to get a quick look up on Westlaw and said ok he really just cite this one
    • And I think they might have just taken the other case and looked what they used to deny that and throw it out but like I said I only had to to choose from
    • But I think I I think that law clerk mate is in a rush I just don't want to take that right away from all journalists for all time by not challenged in this case
    • Now I don't want to make the judge mad I just want I think we all want the best in jurisprudence here and the best minds to fall on this
    • So I'm gonna review the Carmichael case
    • I mean I've thought about it an hour and I just started thinking about the implications of this
    • It's kind of like it's not Dred Scott but it's something it's it's does a journalist have a right to say something if they see something going down that's bad which prosecutorial misconduct
    • If I hadn't seen how much prosecutorial misconduct or it has been in this case I wouldn't feel that way
    • But this is a case it clearly demands for this decision to be overturned
    • So we're gonna go to the DC Court of Appeals and we're gonna learn about Appeals all together
    • Now that's yeah Georgia yet another iron in the fire are you crazy well I'm gonna have 50 of them in the fire
    • I'm gonna have 50 of them in the fire, because we're gonna get to the bottom of this case
    • We're gonna find out the truth never East it's always secure network you found out about the Senate has a secure Network
    • Now you found out today that the house has a secure network well are those servers over at the CIA
    • Does the American people know that those servers are over at the CIA
    • If we hadn't challenged them this morning would we have found out that there was a separate secure network at the house?
    • Now the key question is now our questioning can become much more refined Imran Awan did you have access to the secure network in the House of Representatives
    • Imran Awan did you configure Blackberries which had access to the secure network in the House of Representatives
    • Is that why you someone asked for your top secret clearance laid in December 2016 why not deutsche Jackie Speier asked for your in order to cover the tracks
    • The fact that you were configuring secure Blackberries all the time before that
