"Few years back, but still relevant about Thomas L Friedman of The New York Times. In his hatred for the State of Israel. And of course, he pretends he doesn't, like most. Secularists do. There's a man he married into great wealth. He lives on an estate, I think of Bethesda, Maryland. With many millions of dollars, it is youth, he spent some time in Egypt. He spent some time in Israel. He's he's rewritten his history. He wants you to believe he really became trouble Israel really around 2009 with Netanyahu. Of course that's not true. He was part of a group that demonstrated to allow Yasser Arafat to speak at the United Nations. He made excuses for our fat and the PLO. He wrote about them. As a young man. He has pushed hard for the so called two state solution. Even with all the terrorism that's taken place, he's a radical leftist is what he is. That's why years ago he praised the communist Chinese system more than once. And denounced our own. And denounced our own. At least they get things done, he said. Guess he's not aware that they don't have a free press and guys like him would wind up well, like other people. Head shaved and off to the salt mines. And so Thomas Freeman has been a radical leftist for many decades. He's been hostile to a truly Democrat Israel for decades. And so he writes pieces trashing that country and trashing our country. You need to understand his background. So I want to encourage you to read it. It is on my sights all the sights, right rich and it's from commentary magazine. And it's still a good piece, though. Even though it's a couple of years old, I want you to check it out. So you know more about Thomas Freeman. I want to tell you about something to help you protect your retirement. 2022 was a truly lousy year. And this year is going to be worse. It's already kind of started that way. Interest rates are going up. They're going to be pushed up by the fed that's trying to control spending by Congress, and yet you see Biden wants to spend an enormous amount of money, massive taxes. It's going to create really unprecedented economic dislocation. That's where we're headed here. This crazy spending

"A couple of notes here. Folks, I did this for a living for a decade of my life. I don't want you to get lost. I think the media is setting you up with this story The vice president, former vice president when they leave office, does not get Secret Service protection. Former vice president Joe Biden, I can't emphasize this enough, had no Secret Service protection. You can argue all day about Secret Service logs. I'm telling you for a categorical, unchallengeable fact, the former vice president does not get Secret Service protection. I have been there when these details are discontinued and I have seen well, I shouldn't say I've been there. I've been on the I was on the job when details for former vice presidents discontinued and guys I work with were on the details and couldn't believe Al Gore comes to mind, couldn't believe like that was it. What do you mean? Here's your airport. You should take it to Tennessee. What do you mean? You guys aren't coming with me? No. You mean I have to go through security? Yeah. No, I'm serious like they're told. They're Warren, and then when it happens, they're stunned. Biden didn't have Secret Service protection. Second, as president, he obviously does. The president of the United States is the one guy Jim. I got like a minute left. As president, that is the one position in the government. You can not quote sign off protection. You can't. The president can not under any circumstances sign off protection. He can't. Other protectees can sign off. I think the president and vice president, but foreign digs, they can sign all these adamant protection. You guys can leave. The president can't. So he's under Secret Service protection the whole time. Okay, Dan, so there's definitely visitors to the residents. The Secret Service would have vetted them. Yes, they would have. They would have done name checks, though. And I think where they're baiting you in is they're asking you for visitor locked. They don't keep visitor long. They may have kept some name checks, then that you could probably get your hands on. But if the staff says bring someone into the residence and let them in, the Secret Service lets them in. They take out the handheld magnetometer, the metal detector, they want them, they pat them down, but if the staff says go in, go in. Well, Dan, what if it's a terrorist? Yeah. No, the president's not allowed to meet with terrorists. Really? They do it all the time. The president's met with the Taliban. They met with Yasser Arafat. What are you talking about? They may be president with terrorists all the time. They're not going to allow him to bring bombs or guns in the room. The Secret Service is not the side who the president meets. I think they're taking you down a path here because they know it's going to lead. The somewhere and waste time on the real scandal. There may be there may be security checks. All right, I got to take a break. I mean, I'll get to more of this after the break. We'll be right back. Tragically, every minute unborn babies futures are sucked out of existence. But amid the darkness, there's a light that shines, and that's pre born. Pre born introduces mothers considering abortion to their unborn babies through ultrasound. When she hears on heartbeat, sees that precious life, the majority of the time she'll choose life. Pre born pregnancy clinics are positioned in top abortion areas where most abortions still take place.

"It wasn't certain that Oslo was going to work But I think that had Rabin not been assassinated and had he been able to continue working with Arafat Then they had a chance For the next ten years from 1995 to 2005 more violence prevailed A never ending battle for territory including the second intifada which lasted for 5 years This time Hamas took power in Gaza splitting the Palestinian population politically The chance of a peace deal with equal territory for both sides and the shared capital in Jerusalem as envisioned by the UN in 1947 became a distant dream Today the really big stuff is Jeremy calls it remains unsolved Jeremy why is Jerusalem so emotionally relevant even today to both Israelis and Palestinians When it starts with religion because Jerusalem is a place which has the holiest sites for Christians and for Jews and the third holiest place in the world for Muslims So it's immensely religiously significant and it's also a national symbol For both Israelis and Palestinians and it's always been through its history violently contested Palestinians say Israel is desecrating the mosque and extending its control of the city which Palestinians regard as their capital And I think the uniqueness.

"There's kind of an equivalence. Here the moslems commit terrorism and the jews commit terrorism. It's a bunch of crazies on both sides and while what goes into was totally unforgivable and morally reprehensible. It's important to understand that to be honest. That goldstein inouye represented the position of israeli government. Had he survived the attack. He would have been convicted but he's killed his killed by the people in the tomb but it's just important to not allow that moral equivalency to go completely derailed arafat was allowing hamas and his own fatah to carry out these terrorist bombings. The israeli government obviously had no hand in mubarak. Goldstein did but it's clear that the region is a tinderbox and israel is also a tinderbox because in light of the rising terrorism and in light of the increasing vitriol especially on the part of israel's right there is a real sense in israel that this is getting out of hand we are talking about each other in ways that we should not be talking about each other and we are talking about each other as being traitors when you call somebody a traitor. You're doing something very dangerous. In jewish law the term road. They've which means trader pursuer or something the punishment for that is death and therefore the vitriol. That was taking over. Israel was really really all consuming and talk. Robbing who is the prime minister there contributes to it in a small way. He actually says at a certain point. I can't be the prime minister of everybody. I promise certain people that i wasn't gonna pull out of this area. But what am i going to do. I can't represent everybody. And he kind of shrug that enrages people and as we all know tragically at the beginning of november nineteen ninety-five. It's robbing leaving. A huge peace rally in aviv is killed by amir assassinated the first real major political assassination in israel's history once it became a state thankfully so far the only one but that of course sets the country completely makes the country completely beside itself for those of you who've seen videos and you can find them on youtube israeli youth. Teenagers people in their twenties lit candles across the country by the tens of thousands. Something about what yigal amir had done shocked israel back to its senses and people wonder have.

But we want to cover is the beginning of the peace process with the palestinians over the course of our look at israel's history. We've talked about the peace process with egypt. We've talked about other attempts at peace with other neighboring arab states. But at the point of history that we're at now we're really going to start to get to the nitty gritty of israel's relationship with the palestinians that really begins to happen in the nine hundred ninety s. But we're going to back up a little bit just to make the story. come up to date. Yasser arafat founds the palestinian liberation organization. In hundred sixty four. We talked about how that happens before the occupations. So it's important to remember that the plo which was committed to israel's destruction develops before there is even an occupation. We've talked about that a couple of times. But it's important to mention it once again. And in nineteen seventy four in november nineteen seventy four five is actually asked and invited to address the general assembly of the united nations which is a pretty extraordinary thing for a man who was known throughout the world as a terrorist and he comes and gives a very famous speech at the un which is called the olive branch and gun speech. It's called the olive branch speech because he talked about how he was reaching out an olive branch to the israelis and it was time to make peace and so on and so forth but what everybody who was present noticed was that on. His belt are actually had an empty pistol holder. A holster on his belt he had come apparently to the with a gun obviously could bring the gun into the un itself but he kept the holster on and everyone understood that that was actually therefore a double edged message on one hand. He's saying with his words. I'm offering you an olive branch. But it's also a threat that either you accept the olive branch on my terms or the gun that you can see and nazi at the same time may become much more central so it was in many respects kind of a dark beginning to this long process which made israelis very nervous israelis have reason to be nervous a year later in the un once again when the united nations voted on a resolution which back in the day was considered huge news. But a lot of people don't recall it anymore. Today it was a resolution called zionism is racism resolution and basically it was a resolution. The general assembly passed which says essentially.

Because if you're like upper class you never ask how much something is you. You know that you can either afford it or you can shop. Yeah silly. This is is ludicrous but it is instructive. We're happy to report that over time. Technology improved in the world of ballooning 'aeronautics and as it improved hot air balloon pilots or arafat's became more skilled because they have more of an opportunity to gain experience and then soon enough. You could take passengers with you on longer. Excursions as long as they would pay for the trip We believe at the time that around the time glacier himself was descending the guy who went so many times during the short year period early balloon. Evangelists right yeah. Yeah the parmentier of the balloons there. At that time it caught. It would cost you about six hundred pounds which we estimate is somewhere north of ninety thousand dollars today to just a build a balloon so if you wanted to ride one you would have to pay fifty pounds to hire a pilot and just to rent the balloon and to pay for the gas for a single trip. So this was. This was expensive. This was not yet something the middle or working class could do and people loved people loved it. People love exclusive stuff right so they would just.

There's no easy gets tomasz there. Willingly part of hamas is a designated terrorist organization. That wants the elimination of israel and users the gaza strip from which to launch attacks on a daily basis. The rocket attacks. Your see now are not new. They happen every single. Damn day it's the volume of the attacks. That's different and why because the palestinians were going to have elections and fatah. The party of yasser arafat is in charge now with a guy mahmoud abbas and he realized he was about to lose to hamas the terrorist organization in the west bank so he cancelled the elections. So hamas is now lashing out and so now the left is peddling the talking point that israel is an apartheid state. No you know what if you're an israeli citizen whether you're an arab urge you get to vote and participate in the election if you're a palestinian and you're not an israeli citizen you can in the palestinian territory you can go into israel. Get get a job. But you've got designated territory. Live in and they want it to be a nation except the problem. Is those in charge. Don't just what though that land territories a nation they want an into israel itself. The palestinians have no state to protect their right to exist. What guess what. Israel was not firing missiles into palestinian territory until hamas that the gaza strip citizens put in charge decided to try to eliminate israel the palestinians out a perfect right to exist.

Why is it not the most important when I was there as a kid that was on the news? Every dang night When my dad would turn on the news? There's always something about what's going on in Israel. You know what? Okay, let's talk about that. Then I want to circle back to the border. But I think part of it is that when we were younger, younger adults, younger kids, there was a belief that there could be peace brought to the Middle East. Yasser Arafat would sit down with Menachem Bagan, and they would actually come to a peace deal that would stick. Famously. Arafat rejected it at the last second with shock and horror of the negotiators, and I just don't think there's a perception that it's it's gonna be fixed. Yeah, I know people that were. I know A lot of people were legit, wanted that problem fixed But also, you know, unrest in the Middle East meant higher oil prices and higher gas prices. And that doesn't mean that anymore because we are self supporting in that way. That's an excellent palm and you know that's part of it. But are we just so inwardly focused on You know our domestic politics that the border and Israel stuff like that just doesn't just doesn't cut it anymore. I don't know what politics is about personalities now, not issues. I think that's also part of it. By the way I mentioned earlier. I think there's an unspoken truth behind the Israeli situation. At this point. You mentioned the settlements in the Reston and they're tough to take and seem like a bad move. If you're moving towards some sort of peace deal. I think the Israeli people are at least two large extent of politicians have decided there's never going to be a meaningful peace deal with these people. We're just going to grow. We're going to expand. We're going to swallow them. Expansion is their only option seems to be the case anyway. Meanwhile, back in the border Anybody got a nylon string guitar player, Little Mexican sounding refer anything. Meanwhile, back at the border Apprehensions in April, 178,622 in one month highest one month's total in two decades. Wow and disaster. Hardly any attention in the news. Armstrong and Getty Hey, parents. Have you ever wondered how to talk to your kids about the crazy.
"arafat" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Could he shake his hand? Tell us a bit about that interaction. The amazing thing about you, Chuck. We're being is he was the most honest person most honest leader I ever dealt with What I mean by that is a he couldn't tell a lie. He physically couldn't tell a lie. He was also intellectually honest with himself. On. He couldn't disguise what he felt. And he his feelings towards our fact We're so ingrained so deep because of acts of terrorism that our fight had been responsible for. That just stayed with him emotionally stayed with him. So when he gets to the White House even before he gets to the White House, he wants to be sure are fast, not going to be in uniform. He has to be assured. He's not gonna be bringing a gun. We tell him. Don't worry when I let anybody bring guns into the White House, But he is everything is is grudging with him towards our fat because it's so difficult for him. To actually be there with him, and then the idea that he has to shake hands with him. It's just it physically emotionally viscerally is simply difficult for him. And I had something to that drama Ringo head, you know, I heard the process of making the movies. I heard all those amazing stories from Dennis and from all the others. And my my challenge was how do I create visual references to what they're speaking about? I was gonna ask you about this because the visuals are amazing. The film in the stills Yeah. Yeah, And, amazingly, we discovered that all of those events which have bean happening behind closed doors. Have been documented by the White House. Still photographers and there is a lot and they are almost invisible. So they are like a fly on the wall. And they document all those amazing moments that I only heard the stories from Dennis and And when I managed to create to combine the those moments that were told to me like Arafat, Rabin sees our effort for the first time in what police have described Now and you have that visually in the film in front of you. So you see all those moments all those amazing moments in front of you in the film. There's dramatic tape in on the South Lawn when the two leaders speak. Arafat speaks. It's in Arabic, and it's translated on the film, but we do have some tape. Have a bit of Utah Rabin's speech. Remember, it isn't easy for him to shake Arafat's hand. Here's some of what he said to the crowd that day..

In Defense of Plants Podcast
How Plants Fight Disease
"The microbial world and to my listeners. Probably the most. Famous interactions are the mike arousal associations or maybe some of the bacteria that form in the knowledgeable lls and help fix nitrogen but there is a wide spectrum. Oftentimes pathogenic interactions between plants and microbes. So what made you go sort of the pathogenic or at least like disease route with them. Tie back to where. I kind of realized that when they get sick they actually died and when they died. Then there's less moves go around the world that means prices will go up and that means people that are less fortunate probably not gonna be able to bottles plants or bottles products eventually and it just kind of tie back to where i wanted to katina help others. So it's still tana original passionate helping others. i'm just doing it at a bigger in a much broader implant. That's really cool. Yeah and thinking about sort of all of the threats we face with climate change and just habitat loss. And you know everything. We're going through society right now. Understanding how plants are going to either survive. Stressed out or die has huge impacts across the board whether you're an ecologist worried about conservation or the idea of like food security and just getting people with their right to have access to good food. All of this can tie back to plants on some level and really that stressor. It's not like they're all just gonna fry because it's too hot out a lotta times. They're getting stressed and dealing with a lot of other stuff. Which is where your research. A lot of your research comes in so you mentioned They have similar ways of fighting disease but not exactly because their plants. They're not animals and so let's think about how plants interact with microbes. Do plants have and immune system on a broad spectrum. Is it anything akin to like what we have so. Am i get some backlash for this. But i go hanley. Okay always been. That's always been this debate whether plants have immune system and i some people like to use it I don't like it at all. Okay just put a bad. That they don't have white blood cells. They don't have antibodies. They don't have this like adaptive immunity like we do. I don't really consider that as amused. Glance what. I like to call that. Halfway is planning needs. So they have immunity something. They have components that they made themselves the fan against grows okay but they don't really have that adaptive like components that you will call an immune system so i think If we want to go down with differences so plants and humans One thing they do have in common is they both. Have these receptor like proteins or something that helps them to chat micros. Okay so the way. That dataset microsoft similar invoke lanson mammals. The difference with the malians is Wadis components that water similar allow these receptors are intracellular and Mammals while plans are intracellular. So they stay outside of plant sale and they perceive those microbial related is cool now thinking about all of the different sorts of microbes that can cause an issue for a plan. I mean there's bacteria viruses fungi. I mean does the response. Sort of differ depending on. What's coming in or is it. Just kind of all lumped in and sort of the mechanisms of detection might have some variants. Or where does it begin depending on. What kind of micro talking about here. And i think that's what kind of Fascinate me about this. Feel is like Depending on what the pathogen is or what motive of affection is doing like you get a totally different defense mechanism front of land. So let's say bacteria for example That's half jello. So that receptor. Or the estrogen receptor of plants dakin that said a certain points of jello or from some better and when they detect that part of on they send like a sidney lynne halfway or finland was biased. Light through the plant sales down the activate a defense response or to defend ourselves against the pathogens. So that's like the plant site first response to it But bacteria what they have evolved to do as they had these small proteins or relatively small proteins call factors and these factors what they can do. They can kind of turn off that plants. Though plans they try and go for gel on. They'll try to turn the pathway on and a bacterial cells secrete of that. There's an plant sale and l. Shut off that halfway. Jeez yeah no and that allows the bacteria to continue to invade the vet the planned sale with some cases plant sales. They of all some of these Resistant genes components which are located intra zillur so when arafat their turns off there signaling pathways. You have somebody's resistant. Genes that can detect those offenders and entered on this really robust defense response to kind of just get rid of packaging and so it's just this back and forth on race between planning micros is kinda fascinated with and i'm so glad you said the arms race analogy because that's all i was thinking of is like it's like tit for tat. Every new thing that one develops the other one kind of has two counter end to think that you know obviously there are different players nowadays but this is something that's probably been going on. Ever since plants evolved are crawled onto the land with their roots. And to think of all of the ways. This has been going on through time. It's just this constant change evolutionary pressure to just constantly be going back and forth with these potential pathogens and the ways you can fight them. That is so cool. Yeah i mean it's still kinda going still going on to this day like they're still evolving is still trump

Rohingya Refugee Camps Recorded First COVID-19 Death
"As hard as it can be for most people to maintain social distance consider how much harder it is for refugees packed into makeshift camps that is the reality for one a million Muslim minority rocking guy who fled Myanmar their camps are in neighboring Bangladesh and those camps recorded their first confirmed deaths from covert on June first Michael Sullivan reports two weeks ago Bangladesh declared parts of the Cox's bazaar district where the camps are located a red zone and climb to lock down on those areas as the virus spread I think everybody is very concerned that the numbers are going to increase significantly Louise Donovan is spokesperson for the U. N. H. C. R. in Cox's bazaar if you look at Bangladesh's Utica Cox's bazaar the numbers are increasing very rapidly and we're concerned that the same thing will happen in the camps camps that have some of the highest population density in the world Rahm das runs the roving the relief effort in Cox's bazaar for the NGO care international it is four times the density Arafat New York City eight times the density of Wuhan city about how activities but here you are at and that he says make social distancing in the camps almost impossible your contact the people inside the house thirty four hours they have to go out for food they had to go to the community Charlotte they have to go to the house that does though it thank you photo make sure that all the a million people followed the thunder one million people aid groups are struggling to finish twelve new clinics for COPD patients with a total of nineteen hundred beds by the end of June Robert look what does food for the hungry opened the first a few weeks ago we are using it as a crime I think casting top style because of the need on the ground we had to modify each better faster and to ensure that we are responding to that I did to needs which is called his clinic has fifty beds for isolation and treatment of moderate to severe cases another clinic outside the camp has one hundred and fifty more but critical cases the require intensive care and ventilators we'll have to go to the government hospital in Cox's bazaar and that worries him the number of beds in Cork's Bastos de limited as I talk now I told you there any beds that are blind right now with that being said all I did accident dropping their question Keysight Torah the number of cases another concern Rohingya in the camps are reluctant to come forward for testing and instead self medicating with help from makeshift pharmacies inside the camps so Tom Raheem ola runs one after another not that excited again about it do you fear he's the go to the clinic the doctors will send them to a different team not just them but their whole families so they come here in the state yes me Dara is arriving activist who works for an international aid group to build awareness in the camps my name and the lamb are bad I hope they will guide you right now some deep blue sea yeah I'm afraid to go to the cleaning because they have heard there will be Q. we told them no and explain what isolation and quarantine are and we told them if there are C. will get treatment and Judy are better then they will go home but people are still suspicious the Bangladesh government's ban on internet in the camps isn't helping people get information either and then there's the rainy season which brings a slew of illnesses that present much is cobra does with costs eighty bones and fevers that leads people to self medicate for those elements instead of getting tested combine that with the fear factor and it's little wonder that some aid workers worry the number of cases in the camps is far greater than what's being reported so far

The U.K. finally leaves the EU — nearly 4 years after Brexit vote
"Brexit day is finally here it's happening at eleven PM European time that'll happen this this afternoon here in America and we wanted to check in on a day I wasn't sure was ever going to come with Daniel Hannan welcome Daniel thank you glad it's a real pleasure as always to be with you and I'm delighted to say it's actually happening at eleven PM UK time your time is something different I I just to make clear to your listeners I'm not a European I'm Rick so you're here and the markets have been collapsed and the seas aren't on fire and there's gonna be food in people's mouths and grocery stores will be open tomorrow I'm looking out my window I don't see any dinosaurs or an asteroid strikes there isn't World War three in fact not only about planned but the UK economy has outperformed the eurozone for the last couple of years we have more people in work than ever before in our history the stock exchange has surged exports are up on manufacturing is up we've attracted more inward investment than any country in the world except China so I think we can reasonably look forward with some optimism and confidence to what the future holds so what did you what does this mean you first well let me let me just say this Hey congratulations B. thank you I appreciate that you guys are you did what we did and seventeen seventy six except we had to have a war over it because you guys are so stupid and stubborn but but when I'm watching what I watch Nigel for AJ is a speech Hey that will I mean I can believe what they did to him in the end they made his point but I thought this is a shot heard around the world just like our declaration of independence was a date eat each you did a very American thing and you did it right you you would you did it without arms and riots I mean that's a remarkable thing you guys have just pulled off well I I could turn that around and and channel Edmund Burke who is of course an empty at the time of the revolution and save you guys did a very precious thing in seventeen seventy six which was to to take to its logical conclusion the arguments in favor of personal freedom and democracy but I tell you this no country that I can think calls ever got poorer as a result of becoming more self governing and I I do think we are feeling something of the mood of optimism that swept over there at that then colonies in in seventeen seventy six I was looking at at John Adams is less is and he I he was only the gloomy est of the found it you know about the fallen nature of man but when that on the day of the declaration of independence even he got caught up with the mood and he wrote to his wife Abigail through all the glue them I can see the rays of ravishing light and glory I can see that the end is worth more than all the means and the prosperity will triumph and you know the bridge or if any reserve people we wouldn't put in such poor returns but that is the mood heather of parties going on all around you know just just I'm I'm speaking to you from London the crowd a little bit down the road outside parliament it is a happy good natured people waving the flag and as I walked past a minute ago they were singing sweet Caroline so it is one of the it's called the great meal but you'll you'll back in charge of Arafat so what do you think's going to happen with the European Union because as I I watch that and are you connected to what he was saying about an out of control government that that's not what we signed up for it's corrupt you are your ignoring us you go your own way you be little us and you belittle the people yeah and I thought if I can relate to it surely the people in France or Germany or you know or Norway or Sweden they're looking at that going Hey you know what what are we doing yeah and that's the thing that I really scared off how old is the E. U. responds to break a person's going to be fine but what's going to happen in the eurozone icy again I don't know but I I don't kill this massive federal justice Powell by over doing it but since you started it there's a fairly because actually started it just by you thought it what is it that the bridge immediately after Yorktown we're in the same kind of mood the Brussels is in now they will hurt and angry but it didn't take long for the British government to realize that its own interests depended on having a good quality old relationship with the new country and so that the new administration under Sheldon in in seventeen eighty two that we're gonna open all of our ports in the in person in the carribean to all American vessels we're gonna renounce all our claims on all the transmetalation terror trees you know Adams in NJ infringing couldn't believe the general city but from the British point of view it was the correct thing to do because we understood that free trade is good for everybody that it that that we wanted to have rich neighbors because rich neighbors make good customers and that's how it worked out now please remember the you did come back in in eighteen twelve to you know start a war and and burn our White House only the most ridiculous wall at the right the reason but it won't be guy and was over before the first it is the only significant engagement took place after the peace terms have been fined for news right but it's a bit too but I mean that that that that the interesting thing is if he could respond to the brexit vote by saying okay I wonder why we got that wrong maybe we we become a bit too remote baby we need to reconnect maybe the Italians all that dot jewel the poles of the Danes will feel similarly let's try and anticipate let's trying devolve a little bit of but you know so far they've done exactly the opposite they said all great now that the Brits are the way we can have a European army and we can have a European tax system and we have more and more power to the center and I think if they insist on taking back line then the E. you will fall apart sooner rather than later so Daniel I've never understood the parliamentary system never understood I mean you guys seem to be going through prime ministers like water it we have a different system with our impeachment but that's really what we're talking about now is whether you can impeach someone that didn't do anything illegal may do stuff that you didn't like but but really if impeachment is more of a vote of no confidence which our founders never intended what what do we look like to you a as a historian can you give us some perspective where you're not connected to it and and and be just as a as a brit well I mean I'm not gonna say something that is is probably guarantee to offend every single person listening to you whether they're Democrat or Republican whether they support or oppose the impeachment which is a I don't think that Donald Trump colluded with Russia and I don't think that he behaved in an impeachable way over the Ukraine business but I think that what we know of his behavior is so on presidential and and so indicative of bad character and bad judgment that should count against him politically and I I reckon that statement is offended absolutely everybody be calls one of the things that is very striking about the U. S. discourse of the moment is that everyone has to be a hundred percent one way or the other yes everyone has to be you know and to say anything in between to say for example is great the Donald Trump is cutting taxes although it's a pity he lied about releasing his own tax return or to say it's fantastic that he's deregulating radio but you but you know what a pity that he thinks his okay to mock the family of a deceased American servicemen the you never hear anybody saying those things because it's become so tribal I'm so polarized I'm not gonna say that does worry me you know the the the extent to which people in the U. S. now see the other side as enemies rather than as fellow citizens with a different opinion and and a great democracy can only take so much of that so as a historian you've watched us for a long long time Hey you know our history the I think it was Churchill said one of the great your greatest things about Americans is after they've tried everything else they finally to awry do we do we how do we get out of this one Daniel yeah I mean that America is still the greatest Republic on a this is a fantastic fantastic country and saying that because it's true but the main street yeah I mean you liberated millions of people from tyranny you put the flag of your country on the moon you you created the most open and free system of government on a and those things have deep roots but I would say you know they they depend on people valuing the rule of law and the process and the rules and business the thing that I find alarming about the US now is how in different people did you process when they happen to favor a particular outcome I mean yeah it's a trivial example but I would say that both Barack Obama and Donald Trump exceeded that powers and cycling Congress in order to tamper with the rules on immigration Obama did it to liberalize immigration trump did it to Tyson and oppression but the number of people who who condemns in both you could come pretty much on your fingers you know and the thing is I have the address right or is wrong it is not right when it happens to be your guide the wrong one is the other guy and the the the the the the as soon as you lose sight of that and you get into this kind of anything goes that's when you risk becoming like in our Guatemala rolled through all all all somewhere else that is it it had a a much weaker history of the rule of law and of a peaceful democratic politics Daniel Hannan it is always great the two to talk to you and your your insight is great and I I'm so happy and there are millions of Americans that are cheering for your freedom today to chart your own course and to be your own country and to fly your flag with pride we appreciate that cousins right back after Douglas's thank you Daniel Hannan from London
Between The Lines
Does killing Soleimani really change anything in the Middle East?
"For a generation Iran's May General Sulejmani he was a consequential Fica League in the Persian Gulf for the Americans in the region Sunnis? He was a terrorist mastermind for the Iranians the Assad regime in Syria Hezbollah in Lebanon. Sulejmani was a hero who protected the Shia cresent in the region. So it's no wonder the Iranian generals death via a drone attack attack in Baghdad. That was a huge news story. Earlier this month cast into the money rainy and military commander assassinated in the US drone strike on mm struggling marks a huge escalation coming just days at was revered by Iran supporters in proxies being blamed for the deaths of hundreds of Americans in the Middle East over the we took took action last night to stop a war. What comes next? What's the broader strategy? Here we did not take action to start a war. Your since the American killing of Sulejmani Tehran launched a missile strike on your spices in Iraq and in the process mistakenly shot down a Ukrainian Ilana carrying one hundred seventy six passengers something. The Mullah's had initially denied responsibility but crucially the Iranians signings avoided killing Americans. which was the red line? The president trump has drawn. US military response. So we'll this episode. Leave Iran Ryan stronger or is tyron now more isolated than ever and what is the showdown between Tehran and Washington Maine for Iraq the US military Tori prisons there and Iran's nuclear ambitions. Danny Applica- is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington and Co host of the AAAGH. Ah podcast what the Hell is going on. Making sense of the world get identity. Hey Tom and I'm in. Sokoll is author of Iran Rausing the survival and and future of the Islamic Republic and CO author of Islam beyond borders the Oma in world politics. Welcome back to Iran. How good morning now? Also Amani abetted genocide in Syria to keep the Assad regime in power. He's responsible for the deaths of many American troops. He armed Hezbollah in. Lebanon with rockets is to attack. Innocent Israelis killed many innocent Sunnis in Iraq. So I mean isn't the world better off without Sulejmani. Were president trump. I think so. And also quite a number of American allies in the region Probably I think the same way but at the same time demand was a national hero and in fact that he was the one of the top strategic brains behind Iran's overseas operations and expansion of eight onion influence in the region. I will just support related to the fair that it only leadership has about the possibility of an American attack or an Israeli attack on a combined and attack. But let me see this Tom that nobody is commendable. dimitris full of commanders. Top commanders into the Nobel Prize winners and so on General money is being replaced And I think e to the debt is a widespread view in the West. That if you bump one or two individuals isn't the situation is going to get better We duty cold in history that take for example a Prime Minister Anthony Eden go around the nineteen fifties and calling for the elimination of Jamaa Nasser as the national president of Egypt and has was that this man is removed from a then. Everything will be fine. Nothing died in nine hundred. Seventy and a situation has not improved a cold and and at the same thing was said to be so I mean the point though. Is that knocking off Salomon. He's not going to make a great deal of difference. But also can I just add to this Dani salamone and these Iranian backed Shia proxies. They did help inadvertently into why help. America Islamic state. So does it worry you that people cheering the loudest about this. Guy's death other suny jihadists in there are slighted areas in the desert and the mountains of Iraq and Syria. I don't think they're the ones who are cheering the loudest I. I think you heard pretty loud cheering from here. I think you heard some plenty of loud cheering in In Iraq and Lebanon and and elsewhere throughout throughout the region. Look you know. I think it's important to acknowledge that. That as the head of the cuts force Qassem Soleimani was a very powerful folks very influential very strategic and very effective leader and he brought that effectiveness to things. That would terrible And the arming of Hezbollah. The murderer of half million Syrians. The arming of mass. The arming of in Yemen. We could go on for a while here but but But he did all of those things but when when the challenge was from Sundays you had is. He helped set up and guide ride. The hoste. Shabby the popular mobilization units in Iraq that That that ended up being part of the battle to to defeat Isis. The problem here is that every situation in the region is is more complicated than the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Just because Stalin Fort with us to defeat Nazi Germany did not make stolen a good guy. And if you look at these anti-regime protests some and. I've been breaking out in Iran since Tehran admitted that its military military shot down. A Ukrainian passenger Ilana have the Iranians overreached because despite the Iranian successes in Iraq Syria and Lebanon on on their rule out officials sites there on stable they print across he so have the Iranians overreached. There's no doubt that many Iranians feel about the Ashim and today have protested over the last few months in order to bring about A structural reforms today as a system of governance and economy which is setting enormously under represent- trump's sanctions but has the Iran overreached. What are I pointed out earlier I mean Iran does fear a a very strongly as possible American that much Israeli combined attack and therefore what update on your the humans done his belt reasonable security and press such for itself which would really want? Shepherdess Arafat at all costs but that does not necessarily Saudi mean that Iran is only Aggressive power in the region aggressive actor in the region. I mean. Let's not forget that that that the destabilization Iraq really started the two thousand three. US invasion of that country. Okay so the. The American invasion of Iraq helped Iran on because it overturned the suny state and it created a Shia majority Stein. I saw a natural law with the Shia brethren in Tehran following following on from that Danny shortly a problem about striking at pro Iranian sheeham paramilitary groups as trump has done is the now part of the Iraqi state. So is it any wonder. Washington's increasingly modulation is part of the world. First of all. I think it's offensive talk about Shiites. As if they're all some sort of monolith. The share of Iraq are Arabs. The Shia of Iran are Persians. These these are different people this. These two countries Shia versus Shia fought a bloody war for eight years in which there were one million casualties casualties in the nineteen eighties. The notion that somehow Iraq is a natural satellite or or or or slave to Iran is wrong Iran has chosen to try to dominate that country and demonstrations throughout the central and southern part of Iraq. Over the last month have been against Iranian domination the Iranian consulate in Jeff was burned to the ground at the end of last year not by Sonny's he's not by Sunni jihadis not by Isis not by Kurds but by Shiites carrying placards yelling out to out for Iran. Get Out of our country and I think that that is absolutely right to suggest that Iran has gained more influence in Iraq since the demise of Saddam Hussein. I I guess I I'm just not that big a fan of Saddam Hussein and the and the stability that he brought to Iraq. I wish that the United States had done more in the aftermath of the wall. I think thinks that we I think that we failed miserably. In many instances I think it was absolutely fatal in two thousand eleven when at a time of genuine stability in Iraq Iraq. President Obama withdrew troops and really provided the opportunity for Isis. To rise up again. My guest Daniel Placate from the American Enterprise Institute. And I'm in Sokoll. He's the author of Iran rausing and Islam beyond borders. I mean how would you respond to all of this. Because we've got these tensions here between Tehran Iran and Washington and the Iranian backed Shia politicians released most of them in Baghdad. I support if not closer ties with Tehran. They want the the Americans out of Iraq. But don't the sooners and the Kurds fee for the Iranian intrusion in Iraqi sovereignty. I absolutely and of course sir. The APP is not only the president of the American so who'd be which are being the opposed to in Iraq but also the presence of eight onions there. No question Ah about that but at the same time if we know that the majority of the Iraqi population is made up of the Shiites and some powerful elements among the Shiites have got the value equals relationship and relationship. What they don't know in the meantime ago? The Iraqi parliament release the iranian-backed Majority Shia legislators I support the withdrawal of US troops Danny now given trump's ambivalence about the region and the fact that he was elected impact to get the US out of the so-called forever awards isn't a US military withdrawal from Iraq. Just what trump and many war-weary Americans want. Well it's kind of funny. Isn't it because we start off talking about the you know the Iranians and what they want and and of course. The number one goal is to get the Americans out of the region and that is in fact the instruction is that has gone out to all of their proxy groups. All around the region. Is You need to step up activities to get the Americans out. Then we've got the president of the United States. It's who dearest and fondest goal is to get American troops out of the region so so a couple weeks after killing Kassim Sulaimaniyah. We have this unbelievably in coherent bizarre response. Where we where we're doing exactly what the around him one let? This is what Donald Trump has to sort out. He has to sort out whether he's the president. He's the kind minded president who who leads in a forthright fashion against men like costume ceremony. Who Seek to destabilize the region and extend Iran's hegemony Germany or he is going to be the kind of president that like Bernie Sanders like Barack Obama wants to turn around and high tail fin is to the Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump's uh-huh Washington energy independent America Stein fought these endless wars danny well A? They aren't endless wars. We have lost fewer people in these. This was than than than we lost a single day in World War Two so while they are conflicts that have continued on and off to a certain extent. You know the notion Shen that we've been sold that somehow we've still got one hundred and fifty thousand troops on the ground and losing them at a rapid pace is just wrong. We lost six in Syria. I I mourn every single one of them but the Kurds lost eleven thousand in their fight against Isis. So what what. What is the reason? We'll tell you very straightforwardly woodley because every time we turn tail every time someone says let's get out of that bloody Middle East. Let's pay attention to something fun. Like Asia and you'd like that. Tom Would now but hang on your way but every time we say that we end up being dragged back because the dynamics in the region of the ones that bring us back we need. We need a long-term solution that lets us. Stay away for good rather than one where we run away. Anita did it come back every single decade I mean the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal Provided tyron with as much as apparently one hundred fifty billion dollar windfall. Aw and certainly many people who are skeptical of the deal side that the Iranian spent lavishly arming the Shia militias across the region. So what it was trump right to pull the US out of the deal and instead impose maximum Prussia built around these economic sanctions on Iran. I think he was totally wrong and and I can care. There has been a backlash president. Trump's would would you withdrawal has a basically a provoked said that on Not to really go for the for police. Speed to in order to rebuild that they have nuclear program and. I think you're going to really do that. And of course that also carries the risk of a possible confrontation from tation between the United States and Iran possibly Israeli attacks on Iran and that could easily dissolved in a regional warfare. That at the end nobody may may be able to control it Danny. Any I mean a lively debate. Thanks so much for being back on. ABC
What sets Trump's Mideast peace plan apart from previous proposals?
"The trump brings out this peace plan yesterday is this plan is effectively very simple basically get knowledges realities on the ground that's what this from Middle East peace plan is that what you're hearing from the media today is that trump has changed the game in the Middle East that from his abandon prospects for peace when what to wear is about this is the prospects for peace have stopped all wounds the reason they have stock always in the Middle East is because you have one side that would like to white the other side off of the map now a lot of prospects for peace over there in order to understand the Middle East conflict what you have to understand is one very simple truth Israel has accepted every piece offer that has ever been put in front of it and every single piece offer has been rejected by the Palestinians and the Arab world generally back in nineteen seventeen when the ball for declaration was first promulgated that said there would be Jewish national home in Palestine meeting now will be Jordan as well as Israel when that was first put out there the Jews immediately accepted the herbs turned it down and when people talk about this vast territory for the Jews get let let's be real about this there's some fifty eight Arab and Muslim countries on planet earth Arab or Muslim countries on planet earth all the Arab countries are all Muslim country there is one Jewish state I'm plant earth it is tiny Israel is something like fifteen thousand square miles is extraordinarily small Israel is half the size of New Jersey in a region that is extraordinarily large so the idea of a Jewish national home there not only is not any sort of giant cram down on the on the Arab population it is eight eight eight tiny percentage of the total land mass in the area and of course Jews have never stop living there there is a historic Jewish tie to the land of Israel but the reason I'm going back in history is you need to understand why it is the pieces never happen there and then because of the Jews okay so the Jews were originally told by the British Mandate by the British they're going to get Jordan as well as Israel okay then sliced off Jordan then they slice off half of Israel are they sliced away most of today and Samaria they sliced away half of Jerusalem it's like the way the Gaza Strip and then did you accepted that you like okay the U. N. says that Israel can be a state jurors will be an open international city right under the tutelage of the west right will not be in fact owned by the Jews are owned by the Arabs will be under the tutelage of the United Nations whatever is real touch that deal except it right granted an indefensible rum state in the borders in nineteen forty seven Israel accepted and the Arabs rejected has been termed by people living in Israel be out of its borders because they're completely indefensible completely understand how small Israel is you have to understand the borders before nineteen sixty seven included an area of Israel that is nine miles wide okay the distance from our office to the Santa Monica beach and that is the distance and and without traffic okay for without traffic you can travel the with of Israel with a bit of the state of Israel you can travel that without traffic in four in forty seven forty at worst you can travel that in under fifteen minutes and that is the worst in the entire country in that particular area if you've never been is really don't understand the geography you don't actually understand what's going on and understand how closely everything is packed together okay so Israel accepts that and the Arabs rejected and they declare war the Saudis the Jordanians the Egyptians the Syrians they all declare war on this new state the British were very much afraid of taking off the air is because they didn't want to drive the Arabs in the arms of the chair of the Soviet Union they refuse to allow Jews to emigrate to British Mandate Palestine so during the world during World War two as the Holocaust is happening the British mandated preventing Jews from moving in specifically because they don't want to take off the Arabs in the area the Jews largely go along with that Ben Gurion largely goes along with that in the interest of venture we getting state the state is finally granted by the United Nations and once that happens the user like okay fine I guess we'll just accept it okay if I like okay good at least we have a place to go at least now there is a Jewish national home and everything now okay this is when all of Japan's Maria Andrews wasn't international control and the Gaza Strip all of that is delegated to the Arabs who had pre sixty seven borders and say no and they want you in an isolation attack on the state of Israel and Israel fights back in the early stages of that of that war Arabs are urged by the Arab leadership to flee the area specifically because they're supposed to get out of the way of the onrushing Arab armies are gonna come in and crush the Jews and so they they're so hundred thousand Palestinian Arabs for living in the in the British Mandate Palestine in the Jewish area of what will be the the Israeli state of Palestine the the Israeli area Palestine hundred thousand arms fully he then as the war progresses it turns out that a lot of the Arab villages are actually if columns operating on behalf of the Arab armies which is exactly what you would expect because this is an ethnic conflict Hey the the Arabs are using these as bases of attack against the Jews they're cutting off supply lines supply rolled and the and the Israelis put in place some called operation dollar which says we are not going to lock down our tiny army in guarding these villages that are effectively in many cases a fifth column instead we're going to tell people that they need to leave these villages and move over to the Arab side okay now remember when the state of Israel was declared the state of Israel declaration of independence urges the Arab citizens to stay to stay here be part of the part of the work that we are doing be part of the state Ben Gurion didn't understand why the Arabs are fleeing using you can live here what's the problem she's lived as minority in Arab countries for thousands of years why exactly should there not be one Jewish state where Arabs are a minority and the assumption on the part of the Israeli leadership is that as all the Jews flowed into Israel from the other Arab countries and from Europe that that would become minority population more minority population their population okay sell people flee and then the Israeli army in the second wave is fighting these battles in in the middle of war there's always population term well people always leave to get out of the way I'm on rushing battles and the Israeli army can't afford to be locked down pin down transitive van insurgent campaigns in certain villages into the clear the population out okay so after the war ends there now something like for it anywhere from four hundred to seven hundred thousand Palestinian refugees at the same exact time nearly the same number of Jews are expelled from Arab countries around the region of ever talk about this right like the reason that there's so many Moroccan Jews who live in Israel the reason there's so many Iranian Jews living in Israel the reason there's so many Syrian Jews living in Israel is because at the time of the Israeli sounding seven hundred thousand Jews were expelled from the surrounding Arab countries and Israel took all of them in all of them it'll take all of them and with no international help he normally the U. N. helped fund the placement of refugees in new places no help at all Israel takes all of them in the Arab states instead of absorbing these populations into the general population decides that they're going to keep these populations refugees so the first movie is we are not going to actually allow them to return to the state of Israel when I can allow them to move back to division because that would be acknowledging that we lost the war and that they would have to then be Israeli citizens then very quickly within about a year the Arab leadership says you know great if we could infiltrate the state of Israel with a bunch of people who are on our side one of his state of Israel destroyed at that point the Israelis like well guess what we are not letting people in back into the state when they fled their homes were not letting them back in just to stand in favor of the destruction of the state is not never in human history has been the obligation of a of a state that was declared war on by its surrounding population to take in large numbers of members of people who are trying to destroy the state from within that has never been anything okay in in the aftermath of everywhere they're refugees the idea of resettlement of the refugees back in their original homes has never really been a thing either in fact is in the aftermath of World War two there were huge population transfers all over Europe they're in the aftermath of the of the declaration of the division of Pakistan and India there were tens of millions of people who are refugees and they were taken in by their countries and they did is that Indians live in India and Muslims live in Pakistan and the specific area where there is no separation cashmere has been a hot spot ever since but there's never been any call for less sixty years for all of the Indians were expelled from Pakistan and left Pakistan to have their original homes back in Pakistan right is never been negotiation point the Palestinians then are used as a tool by the Arab world to club Israel into submission and their use as an excuse to claim that Israel ought to be is right this is the so called right of return it's a great book on this at recommended yesterday called the war for turn by a couple of the leftist Israelis one was a former labor MK member of Knesset and one of them is journalist hearts okay so I'm just explaining history because it you're not going to stand from fees plan until you understand okay so there's never been anything internationally that says the Jews cannot live in Judean Samaria it's a ridiculous suggestion the notion that it is somehow a violation of international law for the Jews who won a defensive war in nineteen forty to settle in the areas they want is upset it's absurd okay in nineteen sixty four the Arabs still have yes merry on Gaza Egypt is in the Gaza Strip but has not an exit specifically because it does not actually want the Palestinian population absorbed into the Egyptian population density area have not been annexed by Jordan right they've not been technically annexed by Jordan for the exact same reason but Jordan is ruling intraday and Samaria Hey this is a so the notion that Israel was always ruling all of these errors all is just not historically true the Palestine Liberation Organization which is Yasser Arafat's organization now the Palestinian authority which rules the Palestinian areas in the west bank an area act the Palestinian authority effectively is founded in nineteen sixty four now you might notice something on the time line here nineteen sixty four is before nineteen sixty seven in nineteen sixty four the Arabs are talking about the liberation of Palestine at that point Jerusalem is split the Jordanians are in control of the old city of Jerusalem they've banned all Jews mentoring the old city of Jerusalem they discriminate against Christians in the old city of Jerusalem they build barbed wire fences around Jerusalem Hey they already control Judea and Samaria Egypt controls the Gaza Strip and yet there's something called the Palestine Liberation Organization weird what exactly are they seeking to liberate make very clear in their charter what exactly they're seeking to liberate every square inch of territory between the Jordan River in the Mediterranean Sea in other words the murder of every Jew in that region and the ethnic cleansing of Jews from that region a second Holocaust get a made this clear since nineteen sixty four in the nineteen sixty seven war happens and all the Arab countries under the leadership of NASA in Egypt decide to mobilize against the Israelis they decide they're going to want to second war every time shin against the Israelis and the Israelis get wind of this and the Israelis
Trump unveils his "realistic two-state solution" for Middle East
"Is president Donald Trump speaking just a few hours ago and announcing the peace plan that might actually be the peace plan that works between the Israelis and the so called Palestinians it is a great accomplishment I think and I think that his son in law Jared Kushner has been working on this for some time but Donald Trump role that plan out today standing right next to Benjamin Netanyahu the prime minister of Israel standing next to him at the White House in the east room saying that his plan could be the last opportunity for the Palestinians the Palestinian liberation organization has already rejected the plan it says that it recognizes Israel's colonization and annexation of occupied land so they're back to the same old language they use for a long time but I'm gonna keep my powder dry and and have best hopes for how this is going to work out to talk about a representative Ted but who's a member of Congress to north Carolina's third congressional district joins me now congressman thanks for taking the time to deal with it was good to see a last week out west as well and good to chat with you tonight it's nice to have you on because here's here's the concern I've got I want to see some kind of you know plan that works and if people say well why is this a problem for Americans the American interest I think is not only are the Israeli as our allies but the Palestinians are constantly ginning up attacks on our allies missiles and terrorist attacks within Israel if we could get peace in that region and get the other Arab nations and the Palestinians to recognize the right of the state of Israel to exist week we'd see the president solved one of the thorniest problems that we have anywhere on the globe so does this plan have what it takes to make that happen I think it's a great start and what would you really going to see how that's received by the Palestinians and that's the you know yet to be determined that was the integrations go for that I've seen this you know top line but you got to really look at the geography when you look to the north and you see Lebanon northwest you it did you look to the northeast you see that these are simply proxy state ran to the the big issue is much bigger for Israel and just this Middle East peace plan because there are factors not included in this peace plan but just how is the rand want to receive this but it is much more complex than just what being addressed here but I think it's a good start and I think I'm I'm very proud of president trump proceeding on this Jared Kushner course you know of course being Jewish himself and having a great relationships there with Netanyahu and having that yeah right next to I did not think that he would be as for this this Tuesday type of plan but you know I'm encouraged I'm encouraged to see how this is going to be received well whatever the coming weeks you know congressman I've been there five times and I've always been impressed with what they've done but they're surrounded by states that have vowed to destroy Israel so anything that gets in the point where their neighbors start to admit that they have a right to exist I mean I know I would have a tough time living in a neighborhood of my neighbors all said we're only going to be happy when your dad Lars we don't accept that you have a right to exist it's tough to negotiate there but the president is laid something out that preserves Israel's you know geographic integrity it preserves Jerusalem is a city that any of us can go to which literally wasn't the truth before nineteen sixty seven when the old boundaries are there the one that Obama the boundaries that Obama wanted to bring back and impose which I thought was foolish and it offers the Palestinians you want to state you get a state out of this you want to you want to be able to run your own affairs you run your own affairs and when you're when you've set that stayed up and it's been established the president even said we will be happy to establish a U. S. embassy they're so they'll get recognition from from the United States so it sounds like a pretty good deal although going all the way back to Arafat they've turned down pretty good deals before but if the president is saying this is sort of your last shot and if you turn this one down then then where do we go from there but but again it has the potential to work if if the rest of the world maybe can can muscle the Palestinians and that some of their backers their terrorist backers including the state of Iran into backing down and letting them have their state and leading Israel exists one of the first things we need to stay at the lack of good will from the Palestinians to the Israelis is to see the Palestinian stopping rocket in Israel and stop and stop supporting terrorism against Israeli civilians that would be great and you know we're also seeing a lot of anti semitism arise around the world and our country as well but so many of these attitudes influence the peace deal but it'll be a great start for the Palestinians just but let's chosen peace and good will and let's see if we can have some we go chasing here our Congress so let's see how far we can go with this I don't like anti semitism either I'm an unabashed fan of Israel just as I love his religious I love my own country but you've got a couple of members of Congress if you're looking for anti semitism all you have to do is look down the hall to to leave and and Omar don't you I can look across the aisle and the committee on financial services and and see the anti semitism there so yeah it's it's really tough who would have thought that two years ago that we would have this but we certainly do now it's a real problem even in cities like New York which as you know such a great presence of of our friends from Israel there but you know it it's it's really scary and we're addressing this about a resolution on this which in in partnership with lease Elton of of New York and we're really forgiveness head on we want to expose it so that we can deal with that and put a stop to anti semitic card so what does it take here I mean can we as you said you've got some some Democrat friends on this is this one where the Republicans on the Democrats could actually get together and work on this together and say look here I mean the the support for Democrats from Israel or from the Jewish people in the United States is is almost overwhelming are Republicans get a very small percentage of the Jewish vote the United States Democrats get the most of it you think the Democrats would want to get on board something that supports peace for the Middle East and and a and a state for the Palestinians have always complained that they don't have a state you know I don't think either Republicans or Democrats should own this issue I think just being a great Americans being friends of Israel being decent human beings we should be against anti semitism so I don't want to own this as a Republican it seems increasingly that we are but we're very open to working with people either side of the aisle and working together on this I think I'm encouraged that we will be able to but will say I know the representatives out of course he's on financial services committee is a Republican great under the president and you know was one of the managers on our side for the defense but just a great member of Congress but we we look forward to having some Democrats so at join us as well in this fight against anti semitism board sure insure be nice if the the party and again I would love to see you bye bye be a part bi partisan solution as well but if the party that gets almost no support from Jewish Americans is the one that's leading the way on peace in in the state of Israel and the party that gets most of the votes from that side is is dragging its feet that's that's a pretty sad situation I'd love to see the major media kinda hold some feet to the fire and say can you get on board a plan like this congressman rod it's a pleasure to have you on the program thanks

Gold & Silver On The Blockchain | Peter Engeman Interview
"Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the crypt update shows against the gold. Silver balloon as well as tasty on big claimed various other bits and pieces. It's Paul Angelman. Who is the director of angrily gold and and Reserve Vault Thanks for being with us. Look up pretty interested in this because obviously I've tried commodities for for a lot of much try and create a one of my favorite things to try because they do have a lot of high look us are low high volatility around certain events and can't be somewhat predictable in their trends so you tell us first about little bit about your background. Have you been in gold and bullying precious metals. Your whole career has being just recently. I saw actually a civil engineer by training twenty years Mike Craze in property development in AH companies like around Sorry stock starting getting into precious metals just in full GMC so luckily luckily identified. That was probably gonNA madelene before. Then we put everything into a Sola which worked up quite nicely and then in two two thousand fifteen Night property into into Ainsley. Boy It's been here for about six years is and join change so I mean that's pretty cold nights. I'll try to through that period when I was in London and try to it was just it was wonderful. We're trying to reduce. It was fantastic which I was. I mean what. What sort of things wasn't that? The major really get that bullish Golden UNCIVIL. Of course it went on one one of its big runs ever period. What what were you looking for it again? He's saying anything now. Look pretty sound a lot like I think in that lane up. Gold Gonzales Dot net a bold run new two thousand and four so I guess the reasons behind that where exactly the reasons why getting some bachelor of FBI the financial systems and really none of that strange. We've we've gone through the jam. Same which was essentially a on a credit cycle crosses and while the dog is just as united just. I'm trying a whole lot more than stimulus so often. GMC was head of the half trillion dollars of debt Way Back at one hundred and four train since semi POPs up to two hundred side so that all market that we're saying now now is is the central bank implanted and on the mental. So on then go look fundamentals things like gold silver not hot assets. Sir You make sense. I mean that's what I don't understand. Is You know I I've to exit a lot of my equity positions about eighteen months ago because I'm on a care to catch the bottom or the top. I WANNA chunk in the middle. Let's Mahal being tried investor. Take safe money. If there is now sued Goldman goals had a pretty decent little ron earlier will threat thousand nineteen. I mean. It's pretty damn good run. I'm sticking to a market. That's what a Point four trillion. Eleven eleven hundred fourteen. Three and what's the goal Marquette. Now it's hard to tell and I will need story because if you look at all the galaxy that'll be nine hundred ninety thousand about in Sarande seven-night trillion dollars. But if you look at what's actually I guess a mile to try to investable. I estimate that one train. So that's illu roadside. You've got three hundred training in financial markets to retrain private property all panics and tries to get into that little one trae not spice that savant process equation. This is only one variable at some. So that's the alluring heightened Rhonda Rhonda sales fills very similar to that of We'll hope will happen with bitcoin. Suppose and I and it financial sense if you consider how small bitcoin and the crypto asset spice is it's I mean it is very very similar to that of what what big clinics to goal is what the goal is to other financial assets. I think goals probably going to be the one that produces more goods out of that simply because it's a tried and tested Safe Haven if you will and there's a lot of people are getting towards look people have assets have opportunities to trade with that which brings me through Nazi. What you doing with a token is Asian? Because what you're actually doing there is using block trying to essentially use a block to the gold gold silver on is that right even slightly. I guess looked back. Story is in two thousand seventeen we actually added the Ties dies to Arafat mcada pretty well I strive anyone's doing it person to person value. I will secure so the natural progression of merging. Nice to wells was up on this new fangled thing Wear so beautifully same as that because it just addresses some of the physical metal so and the only. I don't think we looked around at what else was out a very scratched the surface new very quickly. Find yourself in multiple trivial so these sort of ranked wide convictions. So they had to have something. Don't solved in strikeout Saw Enough by pretty well preeminent lawyers in the spice mistrial via out by forty five year old. Oem Deal and not a startup end and hundred sent backs and in my absolutely preoccupation compassion with all of this is to Address any concern. Because you're all the stories of Ray Nation and they don't have enough ed all this sort of thing that you absolutely visibility and assurances that every talking on issue outside one gram collar one gram Sola That you know Mice definitely that that's sitting in reserve a video ordered that every quarter and that order. It's not just that is a now. It's it's that has moved so we haven't gone. I'm between audits. So that's completely addressed as fully insured bungalow inside. So that was that was something that was allocated you can get the bank. If you will benefit solve watch shine and all of transferability security and against that that The the the economic trump as well the terms of auctions watches. Now how did he get around. Like I mean one of the things. I think that tell them the listeners and viewers will want to know is this. I believe the way that You know the the coal of your central banking system I operated was by the golden is coming in and go back. Then I get these nuts suggests that have this much goal of some brought spark went will high on I only ten percent of people taking the gold out of here. Let's inflate now. What what it is and that was a a gold back? Currency came from really. So how do we know that the goal that's in reserve vault isn't somewhat earned by somebody else and planned to Siam. I'm Donald Putting it costs by the physical that you probably showed I can buy Kill Gaul have its seat in reserve vault silently Hughley with Moss to undermine my name and then you're selling half of that of gold while the you know bullying Bah into the talking. How do we have the reassurance that that's not happening yeah good question and also space to the obvious question over what guys bright side? So what so what we've done again. There is dried. I completely claims game company. It also. The Standard Custodian that companies Eilly assets. Mental Paul's has any liabilities. Times on that have wrought to that nettled.

Monocle 24: The Foreign Desk
Why is Aung San Suu Kyi at the International Court of Justice
"Awarding someone the Nobel Prize for peace is always tempting. Fate saw cha the vagaries of human affairs. Yesterday's warmonger is tomorrow's peacemaker and vice versa. That it's not really the Norwegian Nobel Committees Fault when Pulse Charity Makes Mockery of some of their judgements. When you give a piece Gong to someone like Henry Kissinger oh Yasser Arafat? It's just a risk you run. And it is nevertheless startling to see an actual Nobel peace laureate appearing at the International Court of Justice in The Hague to defend the government they lead against allegations of genocide. It's pretty much the one thing that isn't supposed to happen. History had given us the opportunity to give up our best just for a cause in which we believed when the Nobel Committee chose to honor me. The road had chosen of my own free will aw became less lonely path to follow sang suci daughter of the founder of modern Myanmar Aung San and a formidable politician diplomat and and activist in her own. Right won the Nobel Peace Prize in Nineteen ninety-one at the time she was rivaled only by Nelson Mandela as a universally admired Royat. Avatar of all. That was good displaying exemplary courage in resisting. All that was bad. She led the National League for Democracy as it faced down only terrifying and ruthless military GIONTA which had turned Myanma into North Korea with Palm. Trees saying SUCI spent most of the period between Nineteen nineteen ninety nine and two thousand and ten under house arrest. She was a hero aside from the Nobel Peace Prize. She was awarded the Sakharov Prize. US Congressional Channel Gold Medal and Presidential Medal of freedom an honorary order of Australia. Honorary Citizenship of Canada and Amnesty International's ambassador of conscience since award. Luke pestle made a film about her. U2 wrote a song about and in time she triumphed the NLD won a landslide election victory in two thousand and fifteen though denied the presidency on a technicality. She became state councillor effectively. Myanmar's prime minister it. It was hailed worldwide as a victory for decency determination and patience and now she's denying that she is some kind of an accessory to crimes against humanity he sang Succi has been fair to say on a journey. These ban mind this complex situation and the challenge to sovereignty and security already in our country when you're assessing the intent of those who attempted to deal with the rebellion. Surely under the circumstances genocidal decider intent cannot be only hypothesis loan and it is important to be clear that while Aung Sang. SUCCI is in The Hague. She is not in the dark. She is appearing voluntarily and has not been charged with any crime the allegation before the ICJ EJ is against her country. Not Her the case has been brought by the Gambia. Backed by the fifty-seven members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Asian a coterie which includes several nations who might want to pause before mounting their high horses where human rights are concerned. The allegation is essentially essentially that Myanmar's recent persecution of the Hindu people Myanmar's Muslim minority. Who lived mostly in the country's raccoon state amounts to genocide this? This is a term with specific legal meanings and it will be for the court to determine if events in Myanmar meet the threshold. What is known is bad enough? Enough since two thousand and sixteen perhaps a million ranger have fled Myanmar mostly to neighboring Bangladesh journalists NGOs and the UN win have reported a consistent pattern of atrocious violence much of it directed at civilians not excluding children Myanmar's military known as has the top Madore have consistently claimed that they are waging a counter insurgency against Islamist terrorists though Sang Suci does not directly command the Tatmadaw. Aw this is also the line that she has held. The most sympathetic imaginable interpretation of aren't sang Suu Cheese behavior. And it's a reach is that that she is still in some respects the prisoner of the same military which once held her under house arrest. She may have calculated. This is a compromise. She has to to make to maintain such democracy as me unmanned now has that if she takes hold in the military the military will once again take charge of the country. This is a question unlikely to interest the hundreds of thousands over hinge in now wondering if they'll ever be able to go home again and they of course are the ones who have have survived the Tatmadaw's pogroms justice for the victims. If it is coming at all maybe years away

Israelis vote in repeat election centered on PM Netanyahu
"To get but let's talk for a second Israel's election self coming up in next forty eight hours is Israel's second election within like six months or eight months according to Reuters Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu stepped up a bit for far right votes two days before a closely contested election convening his cabinet in the occupied west bank and having it approved legal status for an unauthorized outpost okay first of all there's nothing under international law that says that Israel is barred from building in the so called west bank injured and Samaria those are at best a disputed territories into his caretaker government met on Sunday in the Jordan Valley a largely agricultural area which announced on Tuesday he tends to annex if he wins a fifth term Israeli cabinet and barely held sessions in the west bank now in reality so is that election gambit of course it is but is it illegal now I not only is it not illegal his opponents in the same exact race are celebrating the fact that Netanyahu is talking about doing something with regard to the Jordan Valley the Jordan Valley strategically important area for Israel and always has been and this bizarre notion that Netanyahu is annexing the territory as opposed to applying Israeli sovereignty annexation and applying Israeli sovereignty are not the same thing. is gonna Mitchell bard right about the sort of stuff just need to know the statement was widely misreported as calling for annexation of the territory but he chose words carefully. he said applying sovereignty which Ariel Davidson of the federalist nodes has a different meaning a nation cannot an excellent over which already has sovereign claims meeting that is not that this land is owned by the Palestinians and never was owned by the Palestinians this land is owned by the Jordanians was lost in a war and then Israel to get over. as with other issues related to the status of the disputed territories is as much a part the wisdom of such a move may be debated however it is important to know some of the facts about the Jordan Valley that there were settlements in the Jordan Valley dating all the way back to nineteen sixty seven then any prospective peace deal those areas would end up in Jewish territory you talk about being who is the sponsor of the Oslo Accords also wanted those areas to be under Israeli control because the Jordan Valley has to be under Israeli control or the Jordan River could be cut off from Israel's population. it is also true they say that the blue and white party missing out his chief opponents in this election actually support him. according to the according to an interview in The New York Times the blue and white party supports his basic idea here early in the Jerusalem post they say the blue white party said was pleased to see he was adopting and would like to plan for recognizing the Jordan Valley so the international media trying to turn the Israeli election into a referendum on Netanyahu Netanyahu is the obstacle to peace of only got rid of Netanyahu everything would be all better and they headed out for Netanyahu's and broke a bone headed out for Netanyahu and Barak Obama headed out from Seattle because you want to see a widely reshipment least in which Israel's influence was diminished Mysterons influence was maximized. no one was not he's not lying about this is pretty obvious he kept talking about Ron being a well respected regional power and how he saw the Israel Palestinian issue as one of the key wheels to turn in order to achieve some sort of balance of power in the Middle East now as we've seen that alternate out then that all turned out to be a bunch of nonsense the fact is that Israel and Palestinians have nothing to do with the broader Middle East Israel has made no concessions to the Palestinian authority over the last several years now should day and yet war has not really broken out there specifically because the Saudis are not interested in backing the Palestinians neither are the Jordanians neither are the Egyptians the only people who are interested in pushing a Palestinian terrorist aspirations are exactly the sorts of groups the back terrace in first place for talking of the Turkish government we talk about the Iranian government. in any case writer suggest at this new meeting the government announced it had approved missing out his proposal to turn the outpost above all get a call into a formal settlement twenty years after he was stabilised as a farming community in the Jordan Valley without state sanction. it requires a tension meddling in public remarks of the session Netanyahu said it would be up to the government formed after Tuesday's election to grant final approval. now according to the according to Reuters this is all about how brutal Netanyahu is appealing to far right voters in the cruise supporters deterrent large numbers Netanyahu has been portraying himself as being in lockstep with ultra nationalists of retaining west bank land through annexation. well no that was always we could plan from the could platform was that Israel would retain an enormous amount of the Jewish settlement activity in any peace deal well it is also the perspective a blue and white. it's amazing to watch as the media get an attempt to turn it in Yahoo into the villain here as opposed to the reality the peace deal died a long time ago it died because the Palestinians refused no less than four or five times any effort at peace their views the original Oslo Accords any refused a deal tried to cut by Bill Clinton in two thousand between Ehud Barak and Yasser Arafat Arafat walked away from the table and started intifada there's a ten two piece of our Sharon that was bought out by the Palestinians and would only tried one that was blocked out by Palestinians. Yahoo himself in his first go round in the nineties signed over eighty percent of your day and Samaria in the in the wye river accords but always the problem for the media is that Israelis to intransigent not that its opponents are terrorists. which is the real problem here. opinion polls right now so that we could and its main challenger the centrist blue and white party are running neck and neck. there is no real division on on these issues now blue and white may approach this more slowly and maybe this is an election gambit again the this bizarre idea that your going to be able to cut a different foreign policy of blue and white is not for now the election polls are showing this thing very very close the latest election because the way that works in Israel is there are a variety of parties they get elected to Knesset you have to have at least four seats to sit in the Knesset which is a hundred twenty seats I need to form a majority by putting together a coalition now last time Netanyahu did have enough for a majority the problem was a big door Lieberman who leads one of the parties the Israeli Tina party. refused to join the coalition without earning some concessions from it you know who sent it to ya who simply called an election it looks like the results are gonna be pretty similar right now blue and white are neck and neck with we could but the other parties that would side with Netanyahu in the elections are winning more seats so you mean which is the the sort of right wing alternative to Likud is supposed to win anywhere between seven and ten seats in the in the various polls labor has turned into a non party which is unbelievable a labor used to be the the other major party in Israel all the way up until about nineteen eighty with the election Megan labor had every prime minister of Israel and now they are winning forty six seats in the selection which is truly incredible. so we'll see how this ends up. if you had to lay odds right now you would suggest an anti who probably retains the prime ministership and that again is not because of the people of Israel have fallen for Tierney or anything like that that's because everyone in Israel agrees on security and a no at this point that regardless of whether they nominate Matignon who to leave the government or whether they nominate any guns to lead the government that security is only going to be a shirt by taking a strong stand against terrorism and by refusing to make deals with the Palestinian authority nonetheless there is this bizarre notion in the media that whenever there's an impasse in the Middle East the only liberal democracy in the area is involved in a long piece in The Washington Post about Robert Kagan it's a truly egregious please. Israel and the decline of the liberal order into it really quite disgusting piece and the idea is that BB Netanyahu siding with the nationalists as opposed to liberal internationalists and it really it would be in Israel's best interest if they would just side with a liberal internationalist like France and Germany there's only one problem those are precisely the states that had some of the worst anti semitism problems in Europe Jews are fleeing their on mass there's also the governments that are. trying to make concessions to the Iranians as the Iranians open the call for the extermination of every Jew in the region is unbelievable but this tell me you're going to cover this thing anything yeah who's the bad guy by the way as I say there a lot of people I know on the right who don't want to Yahoo to be prime minister anymore they want any guns suggested that the media will recognize that this is not anything Yahoo problem this is the rest of the world just like in Israel and that's the
CNBC's Fast Money
"This is this fast money. I'm Melissa Leo Traders on the Desk Tim Seymour Karen Feinerman Johnathan and guide Dommie just breaking a little while ago Oracle. CEO Mark Her taking a leave of absence due to health related reasons since the stock selling off after hours. Conference call expected within the hour. We'll keep you updated as the story develops then if you didn't know SAS. SAS stands for software off whereas service but it could soon stan for software as a source of pain down nineteen percents these scales Hong Kong stock exchange launches an aggressive thirty seven billion dollars bid for it wait for a London stock exchange. We'll get perspective from one of their biggest rivals. CME group chairman and CEO Terry Duffy joins US exclusively here here on set but I it's still on and we are talking about the great rotation so many here on this desk. I've been skeptical of maybe even Poo pooing at times the sector showing continuing strength the Russell banks retail just to name a few so what is going to make you a believer guy. It's a fascinating question. Market has an uncanny way not that I need help by the way of making me look extraordinarily silly and here we are as as we just heard within a percent suddenly all time high the S. and P. Five hundred and everything looks fantastic. When do I become a believer I. I don't know the answer that question but I'll say is the headwinds that exist in a couple of weeks ago looked really haven't gone away all that much. Yes rates have backed up a little bit. Probably a healthy move yes to go. Market is an exploding to the upside. Maybe maybe some of the concerns with the China deal situation of Hong Kong have abated but they haven't gone away. There's still there. The markets is looking pass them so I don't know how to answer that question because it concerns since I have. I don't think it get resolved in one day. Well I know how to answer the question like when the rest of believers simple when the rest of Maga- makes the new high and apple is on its way to doing that. It's about ten bucks from the all time highs last September. I'd love to see Google Amazon participate again. Those are three and a half trillion dollars. Dollars of mega cap the largest in the market the other one. You know you mentioned the Russell. I'd like to see the Russell breakout above the seven month range and really kind of get people thinking about okay well. Maybe small caps have digested a lot of the bad news in the ready to go a little bit so those are two areas. I want to focus on. I'm not so interested in seeing Alcoa rally twenty percent off. Its you know that doesn't really convey about too much yet. Karen you know I I love to buy when things are trading down into gers. I'm kind of more more inclined to sell. Some things are trading up and injures less. I talked about taking a little money off table selling by Selig's. JP Morgan calls I I why do on something like a united rental that has obviously participated to the downside heart and back to the upside hard. I still think it's attractive here name like Fedex that Tim and I talked about a lot. That's unknown news. Whatsoever is gone for line one forty nine to whatever one seventy one. I liked it higher than one seventy one so even though that one's up a lot. I'll hang onto things like that the vix today coming in a lot. I want to own volatility here because I think we are one tweet away from going back to those markets you you seem so fresh in my mind they could be any second week could be the Mcginn Tim even sort of on board the rotation since it. You pointed it out to sort of I don't WanNa say a believer Uber but you acknowledge. Its its presence here. Why don't you try to die down your gender. Your Rangers Rangers compatriot here well. He's missed. I've moved from three twenty five down to one forty five on the ten year in effectively six months. Maybe seven months was was was way way too. Excessive relative to the fundamentals in the US economy maybe not to the global economy and I continue to think that some of this rated namic was a function of buns pulling us down in a relative value trait. I think some small and this is not full. Reconciliation and Hong Kong has been important to set the tone tone for at least we're regionally. There's a little more stability going into October talks. Which I think are very important. Unfortunately I'm not sure what we're going to get out of that but then we had reaffirmation of the US S. consumer off a couple of data points and that's the ice and the services I assume which is really the backbone of our country not a manufacturing reading and so while we know the PM is going down down around the world. I think that's been part of the story. The most important from a market perspective is I think we've had these rotations many times in many cycles throughout the last last two years so it's easy to pooh-poohed at the market almost nothing but I actually think you know if if you look at where retail is retail underperform the S. and P. almost twenty percent for a year until suddenly it it makes a lot of that back up recently if you look at what's going on and transports and banks but the thing about it is that the valuations to me do make some sense and we sat around here and we talked talked about food stocks. We talked about restaurant stocks. We talked about things that really were tough to explain and I think the markets rationalization is that those things can only go so high and recession question is off the table for the next six months. That's where the central bank at your back. That's been the justification and it didn't happen three days ago. This happened three weeks ago. When when the rest of the world started rallying relative to our market. Thanks for educating us but do you think that was particularly bullish. When you're the president of the United States vote head Fed should go to lower grades two zero arowar negatively lower because to me that doesn't elicit a whole heck of a lot of confidence in this economy. Is Picking up because you saw good services number less so you're talking about psychology. Do you want one. I'm in an AP economics class again. I think we've got a case where the macro data doesn't add up to a market that should be falling off a cliff with soot and you just mentioned that the last two years the market hasn't done much because you said that you've acknowledged the fact that we've seen lots of rotation so you know the thing is here. We are three thousand the S&P eighty five hundred and we'll make a new high. Do you think we're going straight up. Do you think we're GONNA go to thirty thirty and then go straight up. Five seven eight percent not particularly weekly likely if you look at over the last two years when we made new incremental high. We've gone down a lot. I mean I don't think I don't think most of our audiences is making a call on the market out so and so I think people are investing in stocks. They are themselves rotating in and out the fact that the semi's which I think are again been an easy target of volatility and the volatility in that space has been enormous but semi's are to make another fresh high and semi's are still up almost now they make that fresh high. They'll be nine percent from June of two thousand eighteen when everyone everyone said that's it that's it. I'll take ten percent and I'll take ten percent of the time. We don't really ten percent to thirty percent drawdowns. I mean does that. Make aren't trading those drawdown. I look I understand those people another individual again. I understand statistics and I understand standard deviations and we are split up to tell me that that people should not have been investing in things that overall business you. Are you saying that because they went up a lot and they went down a lot. They were on investable during this period and I think most people aren't trading like that. What's the flip side to not believing in this rotation. What's it's the flipside to necessarily know if you don't believe that this rotation is for real. What did the market do the have. I've been training opportunities listen. I'm the first to tell you I mean I thought the market's going down for quite some time I don't hide from it but within the context of that we brought up some pretty good training opportunities we as a matter Arafat couple of weeks ago. We power pitched bank at a time when nobody likes you did if you recall that was pretty much universally th you know pooh-poohed you use that word but not me by the viewing audience and that's gone from six to one and a half. I think closes sixty nine today so within the context of being a non believer there are trading opportunities again by only the point is everything that got us down to where we were a month and a half two months ago have not gone away. It's gotten a little bit clearer but they haven't gone away and I think in a fifteen fixed accounts point. It's just too it doesn't make sense with the backdrop that that's out there right now all right well. Our next guest says the value rotation can continue and new highs are coming with it. Let's bringing Margaret Kalonovik global head of quantitative and derivatives strategy at J.P Morgan market's always great to see you so you have a bunch of skeptics on the dust in terms of this rotation so so what has to answer guys original question what has changed to make you believe that this value rotation is here. We'll first positioning is extremely low so if you look at the sort of hedge from equity exposure it's about zero percentile so close to all time lows match in two thousand eight. If you look at the individual investors a I will be our sentiment is basically similar to two two thousand eight so a lot of these early price in the market right like and positioning is very low then generally. There's upside. That's pure mechanics. This is not even a economics one to one so so so so that's that's something that we can sort of hold onto low positioning and then you had some positive things within mentioned already. You know so you have a services in us. You had a little bit on Brexit a little bit on a little bit on Hong Kong Essay are and then you had this October negotiations so if we we have like two to three weeks before October where we still have a buyback full force when the Biggs declined from twenty two to fourteen fifteen so all the sort of systematic folks who actually really ever and you have discretion investor who's basically zeroed invested in the market so that's what we think you can continue now why valutation can continue so people adds to market the first thing they will close the short while net positioning get zero percent but the gross positioning gross exposure according to JP Morgan prime is ninety nine percent out so you have like a massive longshore trade where people are super long low vault of quality momentum and growth and they're super short value so if they want to increase the increase the net exporter. I don't think they're going to triple quadruple on software and stuff like that. They'll close some of the energy oil than gas some of the some of the banks and other value stuff so we think that this can continue okay so it can continue in our view until October in October. Basically you have negotiations anything. Anything can happen right so if the negotiations blow up we go back. Even negotiations actually produce some results. I think this loss for a full year like in two thousand sixteen and Seventeen when when it lost more than eighteen months so that's very strategic trade so strategic is until October right and in October. I think we need to reassess. If there is actually progress towards its radio this can can be new two thousand seventeen eighty two thousand two thousand sixteen age seventy two kinloss another eighteen months if the if we have more of the same back you know back and forth tweeting and stuff like that then we go back to software guy thinks will when when you say we go back if there are stumbling blocks oxen trade does that mean that we re-test the ten year yield lows like legal retail would have on

Biggest Takeaways from Week 1 of College Football
"From the never ending drama of Antonio brown and the raiders to another week of college football let's bring in ESPN college football insider Phil Steele for some insight and Phil before we look ahead let's look back what was the biggest thing you learned from week one of the biggest challenges that the group of five does have a chance to go on when I woke magazine I thought all the group of five teams would have one boss became wait very impressed with boys the Cincinnati you see Arafat I think there is a legitimate chance of group product he does run the Cablevision I was focused on the to ABC gamestop Franklin to getting number twelve Texas a and M. Saturday afternoon Trevor large through a pair picks the Tigers opener offense paced by A. T. and in the ground game what do you need to see from Lawrence against the Aggies. well how about a performance I mean I expected server once the clearly the best quarterback in college football this year I don't think he will be white guys going to have to cut down on the intersections and then last year only had nine interceptions born of sections in the open so they're going to improve secondary I think that's going to be the key because Colin mind I believe will move the football I love Clemson be part to took over four hundred yards last year it comes in at a great defense of one they accounted for four touchdowns in the opener as well it's a top ten match up on Saturday night later on Ellis you getting Texas Sam L. in Europe and borrow both combined for nine touchdown passes last week what are you expecting when they do step on the same field. our I think we'll have a little bit lower scoring game in which you might be anticipating but I do think quarterbacks will live I'm really impressed with how Joe burrows picked up a new offense William classes there now and you know just gonna have to build up a big game. the top six are running backs but guaranteeing them is there yeah I think if you play the game on paper I wish you probably went to stand by time but it's not played on paper and Thomas one of the best underdog coaches out there even underdogs sixteen times in his coaching career one fourteen into a dentist but with eleven I wake up sets and then a large home dog VS the openness scale come it's all the way up to six and a half I'm gonna think it's gonna be closer than the experts expect their game to look forward to Jalin hurts over five hundred your mind it is Oklahoma debut six total touchdowns in his first game for the Sooners Oklahoma has the last two Heisman winners coming into this season would be fair to characterize Lincoln Riley is the quarterback Whisperer. yeah absolutely quote about cool whatever you want you know last year I had been a warning quarterback the previous year and I said you know Alan Murray is gonna have great staff this year but the way this March break the Mayfield stopped many surpassed them and others a chance hurts to do even better you see so many open receivers Amazon mom and I love the way he works with these quarterbacks remember hurts did hit seventy percent in Alabama last year well do ya he's my official quarterback who were. it's interesting because he was a big time when our banner bam I think was twenty six into as a starter did you see ways that Oklahoma use them that you didn't see at Alabama. Iago Luxottica tomorrow's offense different the one Alabama is run especially when her through the quarterback there were more of a one of the offense because they open up last year with two a and I think you saw him be able to solve the problem I like the way you get seventy percent of his passes the family on those receivers are just so open not only surprised me at the top customers stats from last year it was a phenomenal

U N chief Antonio guitarist has said that he's following with great concern. Intensifying clashes in northwestern Syria that have claimed it yet more lives and displaced thousands in recent days, the secretary general's comments come amid reports of aerial attacks on population centres and civilian buildings within a demilitarized zone in southern rural. It live and northern rural hammer that has been guaranteed since last September by Russia and Turkey mister Gutierrez said he was alarmed at news that hundreds of civilians had been killed and injured in fighting between Syrian government forces supported by the allies and armed opposition forces, including isolate Filat at terrier, Al sham.

Ridha told you a news one dose of anti. Venom currently can cost up to two hundred dollars a violent and an adult person needs at least four if not much much more.

WHO says that children often suffer more severe effects than adults are into their smaller body mass one of the problems in treating people who've been bitten is a loss of confidence in available serums by health professionals and patients this has a road to demand full the medicines. But WHO intends to address this and other challenges when it launches its strategy for prevention and control later this month in Geneva. Daniel Johnson UN news.
