What do we know about Joe Bidens cabinet?

"Us president donald trump was never going to react to losing the two thousand and twenty election gracefully us. President donald trump has never reacted to anything gracefully as we go to air trump continues to insist that he's crack. Legal team are going to unveil conclusive evidence of monstrous voter fraud any day. Now although on current form trump's personal attorney rudolph giuliani clearly. Clearly voter fraud easily. Provable seems just as likely to unveil the heron he has appointed his deputy however earlier this week trump or whoever priced his sweaty phone from his. Tony hands grudgingly tweeted that the us general services administration the body which oversees presidential transitions should do what needs to be done. This will make life somewhat. Easier for president elect joe biden. Who will now have access to government funding office space senior officials and intelligence briefings among other things. It also means that he can name his cabinet with increasing confidence. Very possibly because president-elect biden has wanted to emphasize legitimacy in the face of the incumbents ongoing tantrum vis-a-vis the election results. We've learned a lot quite early about the administration. He intends to lead from january twentieth. Is a team that will keep our country and our people safe and secure. It's a team that reflects the fact that america is back ready to lead the world not retreat from it once again. Sit at the head of the table. We will come presently to who. And what is in biden's cabinet but at least as significant things being as they recently have been is who and what is not biden has not at least as of this broadcast awarded any government position to any obvious crooks crepes clowns ding bats. Yahoos griffis spivs cracks. He's own ghastly children or they idiot husbands but wild president-elect biden does have the advantage of a low bar to climb over. It doesn't mean that he's choices are excused scrutiny especially those pertaining to foreign policy on the grounds that. Us foreign policy often has a way of becoming of the people's domestic reality president. Trump's first secretary of state was to put it charitably unorthodox unorthodox choice. I'm not here to represent the united states government's interest. I'm not here to to did norm. Norma here to criticize it. That's that's not what i do. I'm businessman. Rex tillerson a career oil. Baron wants personally awarded. Russia's order a friendship medal by president vladimir putin president-elect to biden could scarcely have made a moral docs pick as america's top diplomat. And that's where the men and women of the state department foreign service officers civil service. That's where they come in. I've witnessed their passion their energy their courage up close. Antony blinken is a career foreign policy. Boffin who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the presidency of barack obama with national security advisor trump also tried to be a bit left field. He named lieutenant. General mcmaster a serving soldier and actually not a ridiculous choice. Mcmaster is a smart serious and sensible man and all of those reasons fell out with trump. who replaced him with incorrigible. Neo-con head banger. John bolton who only looksmart serious and sensible when standing next to donald trump but this arrangement proved unworkable. Good to everyone. I'm paul affairs. We are coming on the air right now with our breaking news just moments ago. President trump tweeting that he has asked his national security adviser. John bolton to resign. Joe biden has named jake sullivan. I pledge to you. And to the american people that i will work relentlessly in service of the mission you have given us to keep our country and our people safe to advance our national interests and to defend our values who was the president-elect's national security adviser when the president-elect was vice president he also helped negotiate the nuclear deal with iran from which trump famously flounced trump's first. Us ambassador to the united nations was not a completely absurd choice former south carolina governor nikki. Haley he's second ambassador to the. Un was a completely absurd choice. Prodigious republican donut kelly craft. It could actually have been worse. Trump wanted to appoint his daughter. Ivanka but griped that he would be accused of nepotism. I've heard i've already vodka. I've heard how good woody vodka the people that know. There's nothing to do with nepotism. But i want to tell you the people that know no that evacuate would be dynamite about You know then. Be accused of nepotism if you can believe it right. This was accurate in as much as demanding money from bank tellers. Gunpoint can lead one to be accused of armed robbery. I want to say to you. America is back. multi-lateralism is back. Diplomacy is back.

The G S a is now releasing those transition funds. John Hudson is covering it all for the Washington Post intact with Cuomo's Taylor van sighs a lot of names that we're gonna have to learn over the next weeks or so. Nominees for some of the bigger jewels in that cabinet crown today. We're for secretaries of State in homeland Security. U. N. Ambassador director of National Intelligence Let's start with Antony Blinken. He's the nominee for secretary of state. What's his background? Well, he's been with fighting for a very long time. He has a sort of mind meld with the president elect, and they worked in Congress together in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Hey, worked at the state Department of Deputy secretary of State and Blinking also worked closely with Biden when he was vice president. A deputy national security advisor s O. They know each other. He's reputation is sort of a liberal internationalist does believe in a strong and large role for the United States. In some ways is a little bit more hawkish in interventionist than the president elect. Hey, support. Blinken supported the intervention in Libya something that Biden did not support. Blinking also supported Ah, large U. S intervention in Syria on so they are totally ideologically in the exact same place, but he's a very sort of faithful servant of the president elect. And the nominee for U. N Ambassador is Linda Thomas Greenfield has been described as a career foreign service officer. She's coming out of retirement, right? Yes, she did retire in the Trump era, didn't her last job in the Obama administration of is our top diplomat for Africa? She comes with, you know a lot you know, over two decades worth of experience in the foreign service, not a political type person per se. I'm not like a lifelong Democrat or anything like that. A career diplomat On, so looks to be someone who would be, um you know, a good soldier over at the U. N. For Biden not heavily ideological. But what has been helping the president elect, reform the State Department and promote diversity, And some of these names that we've seen come out aren't may be familiar to those of us outside of Washington, D C. Like Alejandro Mayorkas Tol head the Homeland Security Department. And Averil Haynes, for director of National intelligence are a lot of these intentionally a political picks or or lesser known names. Well, you're right that these they're not super bugs were the names, but there is a commonality in them in, but they all had, you know, fairly senior roles in the Obama administration, and so this really is sort of a revenge of the foreign policy establishment. And of course we're talking about. We're talking about foreign policy related jobs. So these are not like celebrity type folks. Uh, they are part of the sort of great suited bureaucracies that was often behind the scenes. But these people had sort of fairly senior roles in the Obama decision. Now they're going today be nominated for very, very senior positions in the defied an administration John Hudson with us on coma, news and more announcements to be made. I'm sure in the next 24 hours or so, John. Thank you very much. And that's

"Senate control is still up for grabs as you know. Democrats will have to win both runoffs in georgia to take control of the senate. Here's what the president-elect told me about the importance of senate control back in february. I think i'm more ready to be able to defeat. Donald trump and equally importantly george elect a democratic senate. It's not gonna be enough just to beat him. We have to change the senate in order to get things done. Wasn't he right. Then you know one. Former obama official told dan balls to the washington. Post is the difference between having a transformational president versus having to not negotiate everything with a republican senate. Well those two senate seats georgia is important. And we're going to do everything we can to help. Those two cats great candidates in georgia helped them win. We've already move people who were working on the bike. Campaign on the recounts down there over to be supportive in the field work for our two candidates down there and i expect you'll see the president-elect travel down there before election day so it's very very important to win those seats the thing the reality of course georgia's that even if we win them. Both and i think we will win the both. I think both candidates doing a great job. We're going to have a closely divided senate kind of under any scenario and i think one challenge that president-elect taken on is trying to work with members of both parties to build consensus for action on things like economic relief like climate change like dealing with our other crises are racism crisis the challenge of fixing our immigration laws and of course obviously fighting covid so We're gonna have a closely divided. Senate whatever happens in. Georgia obviously ruined a win. Those seats i really want to see. Chuck schumer be the next majority leader in the us. Senate i think he and the president-elect have a great relationship. But i know they have a great relationship but however that comes out we are going to deliver for the american people. And that's the mission. Look i think that voters sent a clear sign in twenty twenty and the sign they sent was the want to see things get done. They want action on cove. The economy climate healthcare bringing down health. Care costs wants the action on all of that. We're going deal with whatever lineup. We're faced with in washington to get that done. It would be better if that light was a democratic senate. But if unfortunately i think. I don't think this will happen. But if we were to lose those seats in georgia we're gonna move forward with whatever senate gets elected. There's going to be some tension between getting unity. Getting things done working with republicans in investigating any wrongdoing that occurred during the trump administration. The vice president's been reported as express a preference that he has is presence he consumed by trump investigations that has raised some concerns about among some democrats including congressman. Bill pascrell. Who had this to say this week. Failure to hold financial and political wrongdoing accountable in the past has invited greater malfeasance by bad actors. A repeat of those failures and twenty twenty one further emboldens criminality by our national leaders and continues america down the path of lawlessness and authoritarianism. There must be accountability. How do you balance moving forward with getting accountability. Well let's be clear george. The president-elect spoke about this many times the campaign and what he made it clear that joe biden is not going to tell the justice department who to investigate or who not to investigate. That's what we saw the past four years. The president tampering with the justice department. Egging on investigation so and so forth. He's gonna pick an excellent attorney. General an independent justice department and that department will make decisions independently free of politics free in either direction as to how to enforce the laws. That's the way it should be. That's the way it's always been. That's the way it needs to be if we're going to have the kind of rule of law that so important in our country we're gonna see attorney general state department of treasury. Pick this week. What what. I can confirm george is that you're going to see the first of the president-elect's cabinet appointments on tuesday of this week Meeting the pace Beating in fact the pace that was set by the obama biden transition Beating the pace set by the trump transition So you're going to see. The first cabinet picks this tuesday. But if you wanna know what cabinet agencies they are a who's going to be in those cabinet agencies you'll have to wait for the president-elect to say that Himself on tuesday. I knew you were gonna tell me who it was. I was hoping you might tell me which ones thank you well. We watching claim we want people to to george.

Pompeo Attempts To Cement Trump's Legacy In Israel Ahead Of A Biden Presidency

"Workers at the Capitol are dressing up the West Front for Joe Biden's inauguration, members of the current administration are rushing to cement Donald Trump's policies in place. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo was in the Middle East. This past week, he unveiled new pro Israel policies that could be hard for an incoming Biden administration to undo NPR's Daniel Estrin reports from Jerusalem. Compelled, became the first secretary of state to visit an Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. He had lunch at a winery that named one of its wines, Pompeo. The U. S used to take a dim view of settlements, seeing their growth as an obstacle to peace because they take up land Palestinians claim for an independent state. But Pompeo says Israel has a right to settle the land featured in the Bible for a long time State Department. Took the wrong view of settlements. It took of you that didn't recognize the history of this special place. Pompeo announced a new policy favoring the winery He visited products made in West Bank settlements must be labeled made in Israel when shipped to the U. S. A ghetto front with peace now and Israeli group against Settlements says this could make it hard for consumers who don't want to support settlements if people want to boycott Or not to participate in the occupation. They can do it by not buying products from settlements. This is going to be labors that his friends and they cannot know if it's from occupied territories. Then. Boyce is being revealed all of Israel. Pompeo announced another new policy last week. Today. I want to make one announcement with respect to a decision by the State Department that we will regard The global any Israel BDS campaign as anti Semetic BDS has boycott divestment and sanctions, a movement that calls to boycott Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians. Some Israel supporters see it as a threat because some boycotters oppose Israel itself as a Jewish state, But boycott activists say it's a non violent form of protest. So why unveil these new policies right before Biden takes over. Dead. Ravi V. And Israeli settler leader close to the Trump administration says Pompeo is playing chess with Biden one step before Checkmate. It's putting buy them some sort of check. If you really reversed his decision that were done by the constant ministrations. You might have to confront criticism. As to why doing it. Other administrations have taken steps on Israeli Palestinian policy right before leaving office, like when President Obama allowed the United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel's settlements. Scott Lisinski was an adviser for the Obama administration. President Clinton himself using his presidential transition, trying to move Middle East peace forward George Shultz at the end of the Reagan presidency. Negotiating a very careful formal diplomatic dialogue, the first ever between American and Palestinian leaders. These are examples of diplomatic opportunism. Palestinian leaders see this as their opportunity to make nice with Biden. They've agreed to resume security and economic ties with Israel after a six month stand still, and they say they might change a practice, Democrats criticized paying stipends to Palestinians convicted of attacking Israelis. Many Palestinians criticized the gestures like former Minister Nabil Armor in this video he posted. He had the infertile into Paloma that America, he says. Why give more ground before Biden enters office, while Israel is taking advantage of this time to announce more settlement construction. Israel got another boost yesterday with news that the U. S. Justice Department decided not to renew restrictions on the parole of former U. S intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard. He was convicted of espionage for giving classified U. S documents to Israel and is now expected to move to Israel where he has popular support.

We were right in the thick of working on the first comprehensive climate build of passage Chamber of Congress, the law would have limited greenhouse emissions using a method called cap and trade. But the farm Bureau, a lobbying powerhouse, said the cap part would drive up costs and put farmers out of business. Don't cap our future, I think was their slogan, and they had those on caps. That people were wearing up on on Capitol Hill, and they succeeded. The legislation died this week. The head of the farm bureau, Zippy DeVol, struck a different tone. We're gonna have a real common sense science based discussion about how we protect the climate. And our farmers want to be part of that he was announcing a new food and agriculture climate alliance. It includes other farm groups. Also big environmental organizations like the Nature Conservancy, where people Elias is director of agriculture it feels like in the past. 18 months, The conversation has just really shifted. The shift is happening for a couple of reasons. Many food companies have promised to reduce their greenhouse emissions. And they're pushing for changes on the farm, sometimes paying for the changes. And Barb Glen, who CEO of the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, says it's partly just what farmers are experiencing everyone in this unique coalition. Understands and is witnessing the changing of the climate, and we all want to be involved In impacting this. The new alliance is proposing dozens of policy changes that encourage farmers to install equipment that captures methane, the powerful greenhouse gas from Cal manure or farm in a way that builds healthier carbon rich soil, actually removing carbon from the air. Farmers would get paid to do this, maybe by the government, maybe by private companies that want to offset or cancel out some of their own carbon emissions by paying for greenhouse gas reductions somewhere else. Some environmentalists who are not part of this alliance, like Jason Davidson at Friends of the Earth are dead set against some of those ideas. There's a heavy reliance on voluntary market based solutions. But those carbon offsets that farmers might sell just allow polluters somewhere to keep polluting, he says. Also, it could be hard to measure what some of these farming methods actually accomplish. MEREDITH Niles, specialist on farming and the environment of the University of Vermont, says scientists are working on that measurement problem. And the fact that farm groups are finally talking about reducing their own greenhouse emissions, she says, is a big step forward. A lot of farmers didn't want to speak about it because it might mean potential regulation. They're fine with incentives, though. And there are signs that the incoming Biden administration is thinking the same way. The leader of the Biden transition team for the U. S. Department of Agriculture recently called on the USDA to set up a so called carbon bank. It would pay farmers to fight climate change.

Biden Gives New Hope To Refugees Fleeing Religious Persecution

"Million refugees around the world who need to be resettled. That is, according to the United Nation, which says many of them have fled religious persecution. While the Trump administration has highlighted the plate of many religious minorities. For the most part, it has shut the country's doors to refugees. NPR's Tom Geltman reports that President elect Biden is promising to change that. Shortly after his election, Joe Biden told the Jesuit refugee service that his administration would aim to bring 125,000 refugees here each year. United States has long stood as a beacon of hope. The downtrodden and you're pressed. Leader and resettling refugees and our humanitarian response. I promise as president, I'll reclaim that proud legacy for our country. That would be a sharp change. President Trump last month said he'd allow only 15,000 refugees to come here next year. At a campaign rally in Minnesota this fall. He proudly contrast in his attitude toward refugees with that of his opponent, Sleepy Joe Biden's extreme plan to flood your state with an influx of refugees from Somalia from other places all over the planet. Not withstanding such refugee bashing. The Trump administration has actually earned high marks for how it highlighted the persecution of religious minorities around the world. Trumps State Department hosted to international meetings on the issue, even issued an executive order mandating that support for religious freedom become a guiding principle of U. S foreign policy. Knox Tame is was a State department advisor for religious minorities under President Obama, and he stayed on his part of the Trump team. I think on promoting international AGIs freedom, it's safe to say they did more than any other administration has. But then, he says there was the Muslim ban and Trump turning his back on refugees, including Those fleeing religious persecution. Here. We are working to defend the right of people to believe anything or nothing to change faith. We're pushing governments to reform their laws. And then when you see thousands of people who are being persecuted for their beliefs needing to flee their homes, And suddenly we're at the back of the line. We're no longer a leader Teams left the state Department for months ago. Groups that try to help refugees were likewise dismayed by Trump's steep cut and refugee admissions. Jenny Yang is vice president for advocacy and policy at World Relief, a Christian humanitarian organization. Just in the past few years, there's been a decline of over 40% Of countries that are admitting refugees into the refugee admissions program. And it's because if the United States is not taking its position as a world leader, other countries are effectively shutting their doors as well. Yang welcome Joe Biden's promise of a new refugee policy. But she says it's set up a challenge groups that work on resettlement laid off people when refugee admissions dropped off under Trump. World relief is among those that will now need to ramp up again. Not only do we need to hire staff that have expertise in this area, but we need to train them. We need to prepare our offices, even re open offices in certain communities where refugees are going to be going, and that takes a lot of time and investment. Eventually, a Biden administration may want to give religion related issues more attention. U S foreign policy. Disciple is president emeritus of the Institute for Global Engagement. You need to think about how we train and equip all U. S personnel with religious literacy as a function of a broader engagement strategy, because religion is not something you tack on as another box. Religion is, in all the boxes a Biden administration could that make refugee policy part of a larger effort? To deal with what drives people to leave home in the first place like wars over religion.

"She's here later in the hour. A major player has emerged over the past year in internal state -partment family wellness initiatives. Susan Pompeo wife of secretary of state, Mike Pompeo has taken cues from a couple of wives of former CIA director's who built up family initiatives at the CIA when their husbands headed the agency, you'll recall, Mr. Pompeo, was also CIA director before becoming America's top diplomat last year. More on MRs Pompeo's emerging role from guy Taylor national security and foreign policy reporter at the Washington Times. Guy, what have you seen? This is the third time she traveled with him. She captured some international headlines back in January when she went with him to the Middle East and at the time, we're in a government shutdown, and there was some media reports that diplomatic unnamed sources, of course complained that it was inappropriate that she would travel with him. At a time when. Department employees weren't getting paychecks because of the shutdown. So what's interesting is that she would be willing to talk at this time. And she, she kind of opened up in this really behind the scenes way where she talked about how, you know, Mike, Pompeo's got this, this kind of reputations as somebody who's really liked in private meetings, having this sort of charisma, when the cameras are turned off other foreign leaders and diplomats. They like appreciate this. They always seem to leave meetings with him smiling, even when they vehemently disagree with conservative policies such as on Iran, nuclear deal, trashing the Obama administration's foreign pulsing species, his promotion of Trump's America, I share, etc. So in public Pompeii, oh, has this other reputation of somebody who's really kind of stiff and a little bit grouchy? He doesn't really connect on a charisma. Level. That say former secretary of State, John Kerry did on his trips around the world, especially in Europe, and that's where Susan pond, pale really comes in where if she's traveling with her husband suddenly, you'll see him out in public smiling at times, which is which is interesting. It's almost like he's a little bit softer and more likable. It's definitely an interesting dynamic, and anything, you know, in terms of inside baseball, it's worth considering given that she is traveling, as far as we know on the taxpayer dime. We're speaking with guy Taylor national security editor at the Washington Times. His piece is called. Do you feel safe? Susan Pompeo makes happiness and security of diplomatic families her mission. So you mentioned or she mentioned to you that she asks, do you feel safe? She picked us up on her own. I think it's a big priority for Mike Pompeo and look, I'm not going to pretend that I went into deep discussion with Susan Pompeo about this. But the presumption from the journalistic side secretary Pompeo really made a name for himself back in the Benghazi hearings. The really went after then secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, where of course ambassador Chris Stevens had died in an Terry who tack and Libya, and Pompeo really paid a name for himself on that you can imagine that now that he is the tide th- the roles switched and here he is, as secretary of state the security of diplomats a huge issue for him. He's, he's, he's kind of obsessed with it because I think he understands that it would be politically bad, if an incident in which American diplomats were endangered on his watch. But at the same time, you know, the whole Benghazi thing. Away from politics that Harvick incident really elevated the awareness of the fact that American diplomats route dangerous situations. You just don't really hear about it. We've got embassies in well, over one hundred countries around the world and a big thing for him. And I, I think that, that Susan Pompeo, she has a unique opportunity to, to really look at the secretary of state spouse shows up at your embassy. And you might you you as a career diplomat year. You're amongst one hundred American State Department employees at an embassy anywhere in the world. And the secretary of state comes through, you might get a selfie with him or a few minutes of private greeting that he gives diplomats. But if the secretary of state's wife shows up and his actually holding a round table meeting. You know, you've got a chance to sit down with the top directly in cock. And kind of author wick, it was interesting because she told me that she feels that people are really Janu. Even with her and these meetings for the Astra should, you know, do you think people just tell you what you want to hear and they're afraid about, you know this being like a whistle blower thing. And she cheat definitely felt that people are people are genuine, and they recognize kind of uniqueness of this, this setup sort of unfolded before our eyes.

She was tapped to be the campaign director for this new Ukraine communications task force. He began to notice some strange things about the way that the conflict was being described on Russian media. I saw people claiming that the CIA had put dead bodies inside a plane, and then purposely shot it down in order to create propaganda against the Russian government people were repeating that story again, and again, and I realize we had gone through the looking glass at that point that if people could believe that they could believe almost anything SRI and his task force were responding in real time. They noticed that. There are a few influential. Names who are driving the narrative on the Russian side. We would have certain actors who would pop up again.

"Well, yes and no. And just seems to me that that just because an adhesion to truth is not necessarily comfortable. American. The American sense of it is different because Americans America's still living in present Britain's living in his post as an empire. So you fail that what you're doing is right because you're living your now. Whereas Britain is living its postal the time. Yes. I mean, the point is that Great Britain was the empire certainly till the end of the nineteenth century and still continuing into the twentieth and the Americans weren't really a world power till after the first World War all this stuff about the rise to world power from eighteen seventy on is just wrong. I think that's looking backward. That's not how looked like then the point is now, of course, the Americans are now in conflict with another growing global empire. And of course it's not the United Kingdom, but it's China. So the Americans are already an empire. China is now rising. Are we going to see two centuries after the first one, an interesting sort of clash because Britain was the major financial power. During that time, the pound was as good as gold financial system you know was was didn't precisely rule the world all. Sorts of things. The Americans have now, you know, and and no empire thinks it's going to end. The Americans don't think it's going to end. Well, guess what. Can I ask you about that point? Because it's interesting if you look at the the the, the current incumbent in the White House, for example, a man who as far as are wild guesses probably only have read books about himself. When imagines would he be amongst those many frontline politicians? He seemed to display a worrying lack of understanding of the nuance of history or just knowledge of it who'd be well served in reading like this, particularly if it might then inform the decision making this, you know, the relationship with China or how to do diplomacy that has an enduring benefit for the people whom you represent, maybe a little too much to hope. But there is a trend isn't seems to be a trend of a lack of historical perspective from any of the frontline politicians, which alarming it's not just the frontline politicians. The problem with the American State Department, is that well, not that not the, the drowns at the bottom would be such as me, for example, but all those who are political appointees, there's no institutional history. So when you have Nixon and Kissinger thinking, what really is difficulty in the Middle East is communism and the extension by the Soviet Union that is just so terminally stupid. It's hard to believe that Kissinger really believe this, and that does worry me. I must say. Interestingly, when my last one old real new world was published because said, Burke does war well and so forth. One of the reviewers in the time said that this book should be on on the desk of of of in ten Downing Street on the foreign office. But it does show how America spent century and a half trying to destroy the British empire. And then when it was destroyed, mighty all of a sudden they wished it were there. So it book ends with the droll of the British from east of Suez Singapore and Aidan and so forth, and the Americans incandescent with rage because they're, they are stuck out. Vietnam all by themselves. They no longer have British territory. One of the. Nineteen fifty seven. The head of first head of the CIA covert operations told the British Foreign office official who happened to become Philby and fact that whenever we wanted to stabilize the country Britain has an island nearby. Well, they lost access to all these islands except Yorio. Yeah, go Garcia. So yes, the Americans didn't like the British empire until it wasn't there anymore. Thank you very much.

There's the fact that Pyongyang and Washington don't have diplomatic relations. Hence, no embassy or consulates in the US. Hence where the heck do you play for visa, then there's the challenge of booking flights Air Koryo North Korea's state owned national airline does not accept credit cards or wire transfers from US Bank. And then once she finally get there, and you want to talk to North Koreans. Good luck with that. And you have a lot of advice about this. Right. Mary Louise been dealing with these obstacles last couple of weeks. Tell us more just back from reporting North Korea, as you know, because my stories have been airing on the show and all these people wrote in with questions about. Just the practicalities of getting there. So I thought I'd crack open my reporter's notebook a chair a little bit of it. That's a long list of obstacles we mentioned at the top. So how does one get started just saying like, you know, you wanna go what do you do next so obstacle number one? How do you get a V sits North Korea that road runs through New York and through the North Korea mission to the United Nations? They have an ambassador to the UN who I met for coffee in the lobby of this Manhattan hotel. He was with another senior North Korean diplomat. We talked about it and months and many emails and phone calls later. They said we might be able to put you in business with a visa then. So that's the North Korean side. Then you have to deal with the American State Department, which will not let you travel on your regular passport. You have to apply for and get a second passport as a journalist. You have to make the case that this would be in the national security interests of the United States. So we applied and last month. We got this letter back on State Department letterhead saying permission. So you have permission you have two passports where do you get a plane ticket? Yeah. This is the challenge because air corio as we mentioned the North Korean state owned airline does not take credit cards. They do not take wire transfers from a US Bank. So you can go on their website. They have an English language version. You can see that they've got seats. You can see the flight. And you think how the heck do? So we noodled around on that and ended up booking flights from Beijing. One of only three cities that you can fly to Pyongyang from and my producer Becky Sullivan found a travel agency in Beijing that specializes in travel to North Korea. So we reached out to them, and they were able to help hook us up with tickets once you land, we know North Korea is famously restrictive right with visitors especially journalists. How did you know how much freedom? Did you have in deciding where you went and what kind of interviews you would do zero. Zip zilch. We had no freedom, and this is standard practice for any journalist going to North Korea that you will be accompanied at all times by a government minder. We had at least one somebody's to at our side at all times. And they tell you where you're gonna go they tell you where you're going to stay. They actually stayed in the hotel not in our rooms putting out in the same hotel. So that they would be with us at all times. We did go see a lot of things that farm factories concerts. We were invited for the seventieth anniversary festivities celebrating the seventieth anniversary of North Korea. And we saw kinds of stuff, but bottom line is you see what they want you to see that. They've given you a journalist visa, right? And they have allowed you in. But then they basically say you can't talk to anyone. Yeah. That's that's basically how it works. I mean, they told us we're inviting you to cover the seventieth anniversary. And we did they took a stall kinds of parade concerts, all these commemorations. So they the North Korean government kept its end of the bargain that was the invitation and they made good on it. But yeah, we asked to see all kinds of other stuff at for example, the metro the subway in Pyongyang. I really wanted to go ride the metro just to see what the daily commute is like, and I'd been asking from before we left I asked from the moment we landed. I asked after we landed the very last morning we were right across the street from a metro stop. I could see it. And we were told there's no time I said for the I think there's time our minder said I have no time then he told us metro as close today than another reminder got involved said for your own safety, you might get lost. So I never got a straight answer. Why we couldn't go see the metro? I think it has to do bottom line with. There's no upside to the North Korean government. Of western reporters wandering around trying to talk to ordinary North Koreans. You know, what what good could possibly come of that? And that's their perspective. Finally, how did you weigh risk? I mean, fundamentally did you feel safe traveling there? I did. I mean, certainly compared to more Jones that I've reported from for for example, I never felt in physical danger in North Korea. You do way the risk the cost versus benefit of a reporting trip to an authoritarian state. And I think that cuts both ways you also weigh the risk to the people. You're speaking to because I have a US passport. I can I can leave. Two US passports at this point. But the people I'm talking to have to stay in love with the consequences of anything. They may say to me, and as mentioned anything they say to me is going to be overheard by North Korean government official, and we'll be recorded on my tape recorder and shared with all the world. So you always have that in your head. When you're asking people. What do you really think about something you thinking about what could this mean for the person I'm talking to it's been fascinating hearing these stories. Thank you so much for taking us behind the scenes. It's been my pleasure. Thanks. Animal from the Muppets Azizi top beard. These are some of the ways that Philadelphia.

"I think Kenner might have been slightly over reaching there, but you know, he's entitled a little well. It helped get to Leary. In that context just that might that might have been his? His endgame. I, I hope that's what he was intended or maybe he was not himself or one way one reason or another and thought, legitimately that there is. I mean, someone had to take the case. Yeah, says someone must've believe there is the, you know, the opportunity for the producers of DR to either read his script or seen the film or what. I don't know what the catalyst was to believe that beyond the setting and the basic premise that one was a riff on the other is it's a bit far-fetched. There's no, I guess, I guess in this industry, there's there's no such thing as as possible. I guess there. I'm sorry, I stop myself before intern turns events. However, I wouldn't mind Alan Rickman being in kings and desperate men and Kamya. That would be fun. I have comrades in around the world languishing in prison. American State Department enjoys rattling to say before it's loons and now I can read it for me. The following people out to be released from their catheters in Northern Ireland, seven members of the new ProVia front in Canada, the five imprisoned leaders of data back shoe, not the nine members of Asian dawn. Heard about them in time magazine. I'm not aware that Patrick was ever really asked much about this particular phone, although I think it's a, it's a great performance. Yeah, I think it's, I think it's it's got see as hell this to know. No. I mean, it takes a lot to put yourself out there like that takes a lot of trust in your director as well. You know, knowing that you know, you can. You can go all the way and you know what will get you. And that's, that's that to me is is the best that you can do as director is assured your performance of that, you know, go all the way and if it doesn't work, we'll do it on the take, can't you? And I think that was offered to her unit, no matter how much Bouza had. I think I think that was their Mugune was a replacement for another actor originally, which is article mentions here, I guess. And then the the guy who was supposed to play Miller. That he had difficulties of a legal nature. The first shot needed him for was in Canada, and no one is allowed across the border. There's a legal question unresolved, so Kantar wound up at the last minute filling his shoes at three thirty in the morning, he says, and it was it was actually a, it was a bang on his door that time in the morning and it was. It was McGrew insane. You'll do it last minute limb. Impetus trivia, I guess. But I think there are people these days outside of the connection to Margaret Trudeau. He will come to who have enjoyed the prisoner, love the interplay between Mogollon and Kanner and living in harmony who as an all oligarchy, discover the film in that context. And I really if they do that, they're pleasantly surprised that this is it. It shares some narrative similarities to the subtext of the prisoner while taking it in a very different direction, direct. Conviction in the way we were talking about earlier, does help to have some sense of Canadian history to to set the stage for for what happens in the film. You know, even though by the time it was released, a lot of that was mood while guys. I wanna. Thank this week's co host annual, Jonathan, Danny, what's been keeping you busy lately? I'm editing my epic. I guess you might say, which is to after three hour movie, it's gonna turn out to be probably do a shorter festival cud, my preferred version of pretty long at long last movie at Titian of early American novel, which I think the last time I was on your show, I was.
