"balkan peninsula" Discussed on Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

"It's merriam Webster's word of the day for January 24th. Today's word is balkanize, spelled BAL K, balkanize is a verb. It's an often capitalized verb, meaning to break up a region a group, et cetera, into smaller and often hostile units. It can also mean to divide or compartmentalize. Here's the word used in a sentence from fortune by Andy purdy. The so called clean networks initiative used a trusted country of origin requirement to insulate the U.S. from Chinese technology, while pressing American allies to exclude Chinese equipment from their 5G telecom networks. But splitting the digital world in half would balkanize the technical standards that companies and governments use to collaborate across borders. Thereby restricting their ability to innovate. The Balkan Peninsula of southeastern Europe is lapped by the Adriatic Sea in the west, and the Black Sea in the east. It is named for the Balkan mountains, a mountain range which extends across Bulgaria from its border with Serbia to the Black Sea. The word Balkan comes from the Ottoman Turkish word, meaning wooded mountain or mountain range. The Balkan states are commonly characterized as comprising Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, and Slovenia, with mainland portions of Greece and the European portion of turkey often being included as well. The English word, which is often capitalized, is the lexical offspring of geography and history. The decline of the Ottoman Empire in the 18th century led to a series of revolts that accelerated the fracturing of the region into smaller states, whose unstable coexistence led to violence that came to a head in World War I. Since the early 20th century, balkanize and its related noun, vulcanization, have come to refer to the kind of divisive action that can weaken countries or groups among other things.

"Yeah, this is a unique moment of political upheaval for the country. As incumbent populist strongman, jair Bolsonaro, a man who he kind of hates the rainforest. He loves his football. I don't know what the rainforest ever did to him when he was young. But my God, it has been awful to watch awful to live through. It was ousted by 2 million votes in last month's election, and he used the shirt itself that iconic yellow and green Brazil international Jersey co opted it as a symbol of Bolsonaro's nationalism. Really, think of it in Brazil right now as the equivalent of a red maga hat and a stat that was startling one in 5 Brazilians have said that they will not put on the national team shirt anymore because of its political ramifications. Yeah, well, not among those projects Neymar. He has happily endorsed Bolsonaro had the election. Also, it doesn't like the rainforest match rumors swirling about a quid pro quo, Bolsonaro letting Neymar off the hook for unpaid back taxes. In exchange for his endorsement, pro Lula, Bolsonaro's opponent, Brazilians chanting, hey Neymar, you'll have to pay your taxes in the streets after the election results came in. A Neymar vite de Clara. It's quite catchy actually, not as catchy as I proper hate the rainfall. Yeah, that's a catchy one, but not quite the swelling of support from fellow countrymen you'd hope for going into the World Cup rod. Manager tite, on the other side of the aisle, he channeled his inner Megan Rapinoe and announced that he wouldn't visit Bolsonaro at the presidential palacio with the team, even if Brazil won and intriguing question with Brazil, as always, beyond can they win becomes whose win is it if they do. And to be honest, I think they're still working that out. Well, if they don't work it out, it's going to be an interesting next couple of weeks for Brazil, but now onto a country with a political history. No less complex than Brazil's Balkan Peninsula hope falls, the only nation in the world that punches up and down with equally and across it's the Republican Serbia. Serbia, a state about the size of Maine, population 6.8 million small nation with a complex history. They've only been playing international football as an independent entity since 2010 and the memory of the war that gained them that independence always very much present in the minds of its players and its citizens. And the minds of my very complicated Serbian Friends, if this group looks familiar, it's because we have actually seen it before. Brazil, Serbia, and Switzerland, were all grouped together in 2018, rod, the only difference was Costa Rica in that fourth spot rather than Cameroon, it was Serbia's second World Cup appearance, they finished third in the group, only managed to beat Costa Rica, but do you rate them differently this time around roger? You'd really have to realize this is a team that stunned Portugal in qualifying a 90th minute Alexandra mitrovic header against Portugal in their final qualifier took Serbia a tiny Serbia to the top of the group was amazing, sent Portugal. You go and scrap out the playoffs Portugal, not a single loss for Serbia, the entire campaign, Alexander Mitch, the Fulham striker rod easily, one of the most informed strikers in the Premier League right now. Some questions about his fitness going into Qatar almost every weekend to be honest. He's been battling a foot injury for the past month. He claims he's going to be fit for Qatar would certainly be a massive blow to Serbia's chances if he isn't. To be a coach, dragan stoic said on Monday that if the worst comes to the worst bits of it will quote go to the World Cup without a leg, we can also cut off his head, he'll still go. I think that's called Serbian man management thing. It's maybe the most serving thing anyone's ever said about a World Cup prospect. Oh, Dave, I like to think of this man as Serbian Benzema. A 28 year old Phoenix really. We've forgotten this part of his history because he's been so bloody good, but he was mediocre for a long time inconsistent that Newcastle. We've only got to form Scott Parker and him on the outs, but in comes Marco Silva and see where this is going, another team that Everton football club, everything Serbia, 'cause Marco Silva, we gave him to Fulham. A honey brought the best out of metro 43 goals. Yes, 43 goals in 44 games last season. Is that good? To bring full back to the Premier League and 9 strikes so far in this Premier League campaign. Yeah, let's call him Serbian Benzema for the whole World Cup 43 goals in a season is I believe roger the most goals ever scored in a championship season. That's an incredible stat plus. You've got do San flavi, Juventus starlet, $80 million transfer from Fiorentina last season. A 22 year old with a face of a young Keanu Reeves. Question is, will that face be enough to keep Switzerland and Cameroon at bay? Wash your mouth. We only have one rule on this podcast. Never and a me never underestimate the power of young Keanu Reeves. Switzerland first then roger, a country known for watches, financial secrecy, and hublot mountain yodeling. Oh boy. Home to 7000 lakes, Google it, Roger Federer, the good roger and that den of iniquity. Known as FIFA headquarters. Yes, Switzerland's best result to date is reaching the quarterfinals as hosts of the tournament in 1954, round of 16 in three out of the past four world cups, not necessarily a team you'd think of to make a run, but they do like to punch above their weight and major tournaments. One thing you can say about Switzerland, they love getting out of the group stage. Oh, they love getting out of a group stage of four knockout rounds in their past four major tournaments, confident looking, qualifying campaign. They had drew twice with €2020 winners Italy to win the group and pip Italy from automatic qualification effectively torpedoing the Italians campaign our condolences. So we should say to Italia. Red Bulls. Yeah, and obviously Switzerland had that world class €2020, taking out France on penalties in the round of 16 granite Jacques from arsenal, the star of that show. Best granite since the granite state day where everyone in world football says that it feels like Shaka has always been for Switzerland, the player that Arsenal fans needed them to be for asshole. The one that he is now consistently for arsenal as well. And I don't want to speak too soon, but I think it's possible we may be witnessing. The golden age of here's a question for you though, roger, who are you hoping to see at this tournament, natural shocker, or blond Shaka, because that Euros performance, that was blond jacker, blond Jacques, a 100%. If only because the less he looks like Cristiano Ronaldo, the easier it is to root for him and I'm not a superstitious man Dave. I'm also not a haired man. True. But if I had beaten France who had blond hair, I'd be bleaching the life out of those luscious locked bad boys, right about now. At the risk of wading into former Google slavy and politics. It's worth noting that Serbia Switzerland is a game with a bit of history to both Jacques and Jordan shakiri have Albanian heritage, not a lot of love between the Serbs and the Albanians. As I've said, countless tones on this podcast are due to World Cup is that when two teams take the field, their nation's history and politics take the field alongside them and it will be rarely truer than in this game Jacques and shakiri, they didn't make headlines in Switzerland's 2018 group stage win for Serbia when they use the Albanian nationalist double eagle symbol as a goal celebration, which got to be honest day. It looks a lot like the butterfly DCL makes when he scores. I don't think DCL properly knows what is waiting into there, but they were both accused of stoking or ready overheated relations between the Serbs and ethnic Albanians in Serbia, shakiri, who's actually a Kosovo Albanian, also been known to wear the symbol of Kosovo on his cleats. And for those still keeping up at home, Kosovo, it's got its own set of even beefy a beefs with the Serbs last time, the boots came out, let's just say, oh, the Serbs were not happy. And the great Alexander mitrovic himself snipped if shakiri loves Kosovo so much, why doesn't he play for them? That was my attempt to do a menacing for you so I'm not sure if it came out Davey, but let's just say choppy choppy waters to be navigated on cute Calvert Lewin made up World Cup preview. Last in group G but certainly not least is Cameroon roger nation that has survived three successive European colonizations, the indomitable lines they live up to their name, historically, the most accomplished national team on the entire continent of Africa.

"But I want to start with a different piece of news. I actually want to honor one of the great men that lived in the 20th century. And I actually think it can be rather instructive. Of exactly what is in front of us right now and what we need to help solve our problems here domestically. Yesterday, Mikhail Gorbachev passed away. Now for many young people out there, they have no idea who Gorbachev is. In fact, I was talking to some young people recently. I said, oh, you know, tell me about the Soviet Union never heard of the Soviet Union. In high school, never heard of the Soviet Union. They don't learn that stuff in school anymore. Now Gorbachev was a very special leader. Gorbachev by all estimates was ethical and full of integrity. In a country that was basically run by thugs and criminals and was nothing more than a massive cartel enterprise. Now Gorbachev was met with a fair amount of anti Soviet Union protests and he was one of the first people not to crack down on the anti communist anti totalitarian protest with force. Now, Gorbachev is not totally beloved in Eastern Europe. He's not. In fact, Vladimir Putin has said many times that one of the greatest mistakes that Russia ever made was the dissolution of the Soviet Union, brokered by Gorbachev. Gorbachev ended the Cold War. And yes, Gorbachev was outmaneuvered and out strategized by Reagan, but he was always inclined towards peace. Gorbachev was probably too good of a person to run the Soviet Union. And he did bring a lot of he brought a movement of sovereignty of in Estonia and Lithuania and Latvia in the Balkan Peninsula. The Soviet union was a far reaching totalitarian communist blanket over the eastern part of Europe and a lot of that has broken up and Russia is doing their best job to try to recreate that. Albeit very difficult and clumsily and at a very, very high cost. But Gorbachev was a realist. The Gorbachev wanted peace, and if I look right now at our struggle against the American left, if I look at the totalitarians that run the administrative state in our own country, I say boy, do we need a Gorbachev of the Democrat party. We need someone that wants peace that doesn't want to have this endless conflict that calls us semi fascists. You see Gorbachev was not loved by his base. Gorbachev got done what needed to get done. He liberated many of these countries. He restored private property rights, consent to the government. And of course, the gangsters took over not too long after, but there's no doubt that the standard and quality of life in many parts of Eastern Europe have improved dramatically thanks to the moves of Mikhail Gorbachev. One of the most important people to live in the 20th century worked well with Reagan, understood the necessity of markets and of decentralized power, but if I look at our struggle right now against what could be called the administrative state, the fourth branch of government, the shadow government, the deep state. I ask ourselves, we have to ask ourselves, where is the Gorbachev of the left and there is no. There is no one. Someone that recognizes that this endless struggle between the two incumbent factions is not going to end well. Instead, Joe Biden goes out and taunts conservatives saying that if you really are going to want to fight your government, you're going to need F 15. Hold on a second. We never say we want to fight our government. We said that God forbid we're ever going to have to push back against the usurpation tyrannical government of which the 20th century had plenty of examples of, then that is what the Second Amendment is designed for. We've been very clear on the program. That's what the founding fathers wrote the Second Amendment for. That's why the Second Amendment exists to protect all the other amendments. Does it make people feel good to hear that? It's just true. Where is the Democrat that actually wants peace? The thing is, we on the right would love it. We want to live in the country. We want to live in America. Where we are not at each other's throats all the time. That is the heart of your modern conservative. That is the heart of your maga conservative. You talk to a mega conservative, they would love to go back to the country in the 1980s and 1990s. We're going to talk about politics all the time. But if you even say that, you are called a racist and a fascist. By your government. By the left wing regime. You see, because leftists find their identity, they find their meaning in their activist causes. We as conservatives only use politics as a unfortunate necessity as a means to the end to protect our meaning. Politics is not our meaning. Family. Business. Maybe a local small business. Church, your relationship with the divine is far more important than politics. Gorbachev in the 1980s and 90s showed us away that peace is possible. And for many young people, they don't teach about the Soviet Union in school at all because the Soviet Union shows exactly where the modern left wants to take us. You can read the gulag archipelago. You could read darkness at noon by Arthur Kessler, whether it be the secret police, the KGB, gulags, forced confiscation of property, the kulaks, the lessons from the Russian Revolution from Lenin to Trotsky, to the assassination of general tukhachevsky, to Joseph Stalin, Russian and Soviet history is instructive to exactly what they're trying to do here..

"Stunning to see in this day and age a tyrant Roll it into a country This is the same time at who attacked our democracy in 2016 This is the same tyrant who is opposed to democracy and wants to minimize trivialize it to downgraded in the eyes of the Russian people Let's have a flashback show we didn't know puppet no puppet you owe the puppet This is why I'm wearing my I apologize for the visual of Trump and Putin spooning but it is what it is Have I mentioned Hillary was right about everything and I'll die mad I don't know if I've mentioned it Yeah And I concur Yes You mentioned you have mentioned that to Hillary as I recall I have indeed Okay so you can't be fitting away with this Can he Travis Okay so we everybody's talking about the obviously the New York case against Trump And I know it's only one of the many things he belongs in prison for But we still we don't know what the hell is going on do we What is actually happened here with these two prosecutors I'm sure I find out soon because the story is going to keep unfolding but right now none of us can say why these guys just suddenly resigned in this case Well time is running out for the grand jury The pause coincides with an escalation in activity of a parallel civil inquiry by New York attorney general letitia James whose office is examining some of the same conduct So some expert legal experts are saying Bragg's office must meet a higher bar to bring a criminal case and has encountered a number of challenges in pursuing Trump including the inability thus far to persuade any Trump administration executives cooperate Once again here we are with mob rule right They are such a mob that this is how you think like Gotti and Capone got away with it for as long as they did And speaking of which the interference in 2016 that's why we didn't get to the underlying criminal conspiracy because of so much obstruction in the Mueller investigation right 100% So Trump's lenders might also not make for sympathetic victims with a jury according to experts the lenders which made millions of dollars in interest from mister Trump conducted their own assessments of his assets I mean there are these things that have enabled him to get away with this for as long as what is clearly fraud right that you or I would be would have been in jail for ages A 100% and we also know he never gets his tiny little hands dirty It's always the people around him He's been very good at this as entire life Right That being said of anchor Trump apparently is in talks with the House committee investigating January 6th about the possibility of cooperating Again not clear if this is another stalling thing or she's actually going to want to understand it's not going to be under oath So just like every other Trump kid for some reason God forsaken reason they don't have to testify under oath in front of Congress This is just a deposition that she's giving Right Right I'm will Don Junior has been officially served with court papers in the lawsuit brought by colonel Alexander vindman for witness intimidation and retaliation He is also named Giuliani Dan scavino among others He's accused them of intentional concerted campaign of unlawful intimidation and retaliation in connection with his role in the first impeachment of Donald Trump which we should have because remember that was magically full circle Dana about the Ukraine about Ukraine and the withholding of the military Okay Oh yeah that little thing Yeah It is amazing I always say that statement but it's amazing how everything is one story It all comes back to what Nancy bell has to say All roads lead to Putin 100% It's just it appears to all come back to Russia and what's going on now I just can't believe there are people defending this murderous thug That are American I mean you got Ted Cruz at least speaking out against him And so he had Ted Cruz is speaking Until Trump says something Wife or his father would never get back in line Yeah absolutely Your wife's even uglier than I said last time Putin is a good guy He made a good deal He'll be right back to Trump's talking points in a minute Robert in Florida you're on with Dana Hey Robert Hey how happy World War three day You too Hey coach I love you I love you too Hey you know every one of these former satellite countries those Balkan Peninsula countries everybody that was repressed or impressed by Russia all those stains the Jeep is staying all the Stanley countries over there They've got to say they're next The Balkans are already saying that Yeah Oh okay They're already worried that they're next Yeah my sister has lived in every stand I have to ask her what she's thinking this morning yeah Mama my point is if they want to make a uniform effort against Russia and they see what's going on in Ukraine every one of those fan countries has to rid themselves of all the Russian influence that they have in their borders And even here in America if you get off a 13 hour plane ride from Russia to Moscow I mean to my annual rear from aeroflot that airline that looks like they're women there in the wings you got to send them straight back Don't even let them into the airport They say I'm sorry for guys didn't know people going home You got to send these people home I know I got a lot of flack for my friends Karen and Anita And they don't like you know but I'm telling you this is a different time We're in war here We don't even know it yet you know And we really got to focus and we got to.

"Well, look. I love how people talk about personal freedom. If you're exercising personal Freeman, freedom, put someone else in jeopardy. Their health in jeopardy. I don't consider that being very damn it freedom. Let's actually play out that statement. Biden would ban driving, immediately. Driving by definition puts other people's health at jeopardy. People die every single day on the road every day. But is that personal freedom? Or is it not? That same sort of argument will be used to confiscate firearms. That's a whole separate topic for a different time, but all the public health arguments all the language they're trying to get you to be propagandized, hypnotized by is going to be used to take your guns away very soon. But in order to push back against much of a lot of this nonsense, it's going to take courageous truth tellers. And honestly, someone that I have not spent, I don't think any time on this program talking about, but I have a great deal of respect for the Kyrie Irving of the world. And the Novak Djokovic of the world. Now I grew up with a lot of Serbs in Chicago. I had a soft spot for Serbs. They're awesome. I know the worst thing you could say in the Serbian language and I will not say it on air because the FCC would find some way to still find me. I played on a Serbian basketball team actually. My name was sheva Kirk. Could you not? I have a Jersey that says Kurt govich, the name of our basketball team was the Illinois white eagles, boy you couldn't call it team that anymore. And we were all white. Illinois white eagles. In AAU basketball team. And we meant nothing racial about it. Of course not because we actually lived in America that was awesome. We used to play all black basketball teams and we used to get along. I kid you not. We were in all white, everyone else was Serbian, except me, but I kind of looked the part a little bit and kind of look a little bit like I'm from the Balkan Peninsula. I could pull off a Croatian Bosnian Albanian Serbian kind of deal. And we would go to these basketball tournaments AAU, which is really competitive basketball and Joaquin or Zion Benton and Elgin, we travel all across the country. And we'd play these all black teams and no one cared. It was never like this racial thing. No, it's like we all got along and we all hung out. It would be like all white team versus all black team and we never thought anything of it. I kid you not. There was never a moment ever. And this is a little bit of a detour. Where all of a sudden we were like, yeah, we're the white team. We were like, yeah, we just kind of all know each other and they all know each other from like a Serbian community. It's kind of cool and it was that. But Novak Djokovic is a Serb and he's a proud Serb, he's awesome. And I just want to, I just want to spend a couple minutes here applauding and encouraging him and saying, this is what a hero looks like. Now, if we had an honest press, he'd be on the front page of the papers he'd be like, this is someone who's willing to sacrifice money and pleasure for virtue and courage. Play cut 44. And I understand that not being vaccinated today. Unable to travel to most of the tournaments at the moment. And that's a surprise you're willing to pay. That is the price that I'm willing to pay. Ultimately, are you prepared to forgo? The chance to be the greatest player that ever picked up a racket. Statistically. Because you feel so strongly about this jab. Yes. I do. That should move you. More so than the fake icons that we hold up write a Thunberg and LeBron James and Joe Biden and all this nonsense. That's a real hero. He's willing to sacrifice not just money, but his legacy. For medical freedom and anti tyranny and guess what? Novak Djokovic is what? 38, 37, 38, you see that old now 35, 36, 37. His parents definitely grew up under Tito. Tito was a tyrant, Tito was someone that 34 years old. He's 34. 6 years older than I am. Tito was the communist leader of Yugoslavia before it became all these separate countries. But I think he knows, he knows what this is, he grew up under it. Well, 6 years, yeah, it's about right. Tito died in like 91. Play cut 45. It was never against vaccination. But I've always represented and always supported the freedom to choose what you put into your body. Tito died in 1980. I got my years off. But yeah, the Balkan war broke out about ten, 12 years later. Novak Djokovic is a hero. He deserves to be platformed by every freedom, liberty loving person in the west. We're going to be doing that. We're going to be celebrating him and cheering for him. There's so few people like this. Freedom is a value. If you do not fight for it, it will disappear..

"There's a couple more stories I want to get to here that I think are really important. Obviously, we had the ISIS raid that just happened. Let's play cut 55, Joe Biden taking credit for it saying last night operating on my orders. The United States military forces successfully removed a major tariff threat to the world play cut 55. Last night, operating in my orders, the United States military forces successfully moved in major terrorist threat to the world. The global leader of ISIS. Known as Haji Abdullah now, one of the main reasons why Biden is executing a lot of these foreign policy decisions right now is obviously trying to resurrect his abysmal poll numbers. And the consensus in The White House is not that he's actually doing a bad job. It's that Afghanistan was for whatever reason, the alleged turning point when things started to go awry. In The White House a lot of people say, yeah, that was really, you know, kind of where people had a misunderstanding of how great our administration actually is. This is also exactly why Joe Biden wants to mobilize troops to the Ukrainian Russian border. You see Joe Biden thinks he can get moderates and people on the center right to think more highly of him if he's going to try to quote unquote put wins on the board for foreign intervention. Play cut 50. The current situation demands that we reinforce the deterrent and defensive posture on NATO's eastern Flank. President Biden has been clear that the United States will respond to the growing threat to Europe's security and stability. Our commitment to NATO article 5 and collective defense remains ironclad. As part of this commitment and to be prepared for a range of contingencies, the United States will soon move additional forces to Romania, Poland and Germany. So you're starting to see a lot of activity overseas, and it's by no mistake. This is all by design. You know, I'm glad to see the leader of ISIS taken out obviously. I'm not glad to see the escalation of troops in the eastern theater. But it's all trying to distract from what is happening domestically, which is a rise in crime, drug overdoses, suicides, incredibly weak economic figures, half a million people, displaced from the job market, otherwise that would not. A total failure when it came to allowing early interventions when it comes to treatment to the COVID-19 virus or the Fauci virus as we'd call it, and so when you look at what's happening overseas, you could call it a wag the dog effect. Here's the big problem. And here's the takeaway. But when you have politicians that try to use foreign intervention as a way to boost their poll numbers as Bill Clinton was accused of doing in Bosnia and Serbia, the Balkan Peninsula in the mid 1990s, post Lewinsky, scandal, which is what wag the dog was basically about in so many words is that you could get into some really treacherous and let's say regrettable foreign policy entanglements. How.

"Let's play some sound here. There's a military build up you're supposed to care about this, right? You're supposed to be so worried. That all of a sudden, you know what's gonna happen? Russian battleships will be coming for Manhattan soon. Be afraid, be very afraid. Meanwhile, there's a 1.7 million person criminal invasion. Occurring on the southern border plate cut 44. High stakes call between President Biden and Vladimir Putin in the next 24 hours tonight the Biden administration now warning Russia that if it does invade Ukraine, the U.S. will help neighboring countries. And tonight, the images, those satellite images showing tens of thousands of Russian troops amassing your Ukraine's border. Tens of thousands of Russian troops. I wonder if what would happen if we had tens of thousands of troops on our southern border. We could prevent the 1.7 million criminal invasion into our country of people that just waltzed right in, no paperwork nothing. Now, it's really interesting because why is it that Ukraine continually pops up in every possible drama? Impeachment Hunter Biden will because Ukraine is so close to Russia and because they have these disputes, the United States, security apparatus and military apparatus and political ruling class uses Ukraine as a pseudo piggy bank. On both sides, by the way, Paul Manafort was doing it and Hunter Biden was doing it. Both Republicans and Democrats have ties to Ukrainian gas companies because it's such a corrupt country and it's near Russia. It's justified to send a lot of American foreign taxpayer money there and then through repatriation, American politicians go on diplomatic trips to Kyiv with their kids and their nieces and their nephews and their spouses, and then magically. Who knows how this happened? All of a sudden there, kids become board members of those Ukrainian companies. For example, barisma, we all know that, and we don't have we don't have a media that actually covers this stuff, but barisma, of course, was the most was the most famous. Where, remember, Trump was impeached over a phone call, a phone call, where he asked the president of Ukraine to investigate Biden as vice president, remember he said we're going to get that prosecutor fire. Do you remember that he withheld foreign aid all of that? Is tied right now to the fake saber rattling that is happening between the Russian and Ukrainian border. You see the people that make money, monthly, off of the Ukrainian regime, such as the Biden family, were Hunter Biden made $83,000 a month sitting on burisma. So of course it's in the best interest of the Biden family to try and keep the conflict going. Give them weapons. Give them machinery. And I know a lot of native Ukrainians that are emailing us freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Charlie, you don't understand. Russia's really bad. Like, I'm not saying that Russia's good. That's not the point. But if you're an American now, don't ask me to go fight your battle for you, okay? We got our own problems. Enough of the like we have to come in and we got to solve everyone else's. That might have been a wonderful thing in the 1990s. When we had a balanced budget and a secure southern border and our children loved the country and everyone said the Pledge of Allegiance and we didn't go rename schools that were called Abraham Lincoln. Must have been a wonderful thing to be able to solve all the world's problems in the Balkan Peninsula, not anymore. No, no, no. You see, there's a thing called triage. When you go bring a patient into the hospital and all of a sudden there's one that has a gunshot wound versus someone that has a paper cut, you're gonna treat the gunshot wound first. You have to triage when you have limited time, energy and resources. The three things that matter. But instead we are seeing the collective bipartisan drums of war, this is a major deal. We have to care about this. And each side has their own take, right? The Democrats say we have to care about this and Putin got strong because of Trump and Republicans are saying this is all because of Joe Biden because he didn't stand up against them. Both are wrong, by the way. They're both wrong. If there was one that was more right, like, yeah, of course Joe Biden is weak he gives money to Taliban and doesn't stand up to anyone. Who cares? We have multiple catastrophes happening. Domestically. We can not solve the most basic. We can not decide. Whether or not our flag is a symbol of hatred and white supremacy or something worth preserving. Maybe we should resolve that one before we go and send a bunch of missiles and troops to the Ukrainian Russian border. Like, let's just figure out first, whether or not we like Thomas Jefferson or not. Basic issues. Hello,.

"Nick rolovich. Rolovich sounds Serbian or Croatian. Sounds as if he's from Yugoslavia, formerly Yugoslavia before Tito died in the early 90s. Early 90s, 92 93 94 Yugoslavia then broke into its original ethnic parts of Croatia, Albania, Bosnia. Serbia, now there's vina. Kosovo, and many others. Now I'm going to go on a limb. I'm going to go out on a limb that Nick rolovich and his family lived under that he grew up in or his parents grew up in Serbian or yugoslavian communism, and he knows the weight of what a vaccine mandate is. Play cut 36. Today, Nick rolovich was formerly notified by the university that has failed to meet the requirements as stated in the state of Washington, governor Ensign's proclamation 21 14 one related to vaccination requirements. The non compliance with this requirement renders him ineligible to be employed at Washington state university and therefore can no longer fulfill the duties as a head coach of our football program effective immediately. It's pathetic. So because he won't take the vaccine, they fire the head football coach. I just want to say, that's what courage looks like for that coach. He's willing to put his career aside, and by the way, I've been to Pullman before. Pretty nasty people there. I'm sure that we have a turning point chapter there and I'm sure they're fine. Cut 9. Is a police officer that is now signing off and saying I'm done. Police officer signs off for the last time to vaccine mandates. Jay inslee can kiss my blank before you play the tape. I want to go back to what Sam Francis wrote in 2005 and arco tyranny. But we have in this country today is both anarchy, the failure of the state to enforce the laws, for example, if you defecate on the streets, you do drug on the streets. You are waltzing into the southern border. If you burn down a Wendy's, remember, zero people have been charged because of the violence in Portland and Seattle. Remember that? Zero people of the domestic terrorist arsonist charged of what they did in Portland in Seattle, Minneapolis, D.C., remember when they tried to take over The White House and during Floyd palooza, last summer? None of those people were charged. Anarcho tyranny. So here you have here a police officer. That is being fired, yet the lawless, the people that actually burnt down Seattle, the people that actually created the Capitol Hill autonomous zone, a new country, chaz. They could do whatever they want, play tape. This is my final sign off after 22 years of serving the citizens of the state of Washington, being asked to leave because I am dirty. State ten 34, this is the last time you'll hear me in a state patrol car. It's being Jay and Lee can just penalizing the lawful rewarding the lawless. Now this is pretty cool. I gotta say, I saw this one coming from a mile away. Nick rolovich's. Grandfather came from Montenegro, which is right there on the Balkan Peninsula. Settled in Pennsylvania, who found steady work in coal mines. The family moving west to mitigate the ravages of black lung disease and giving rise to one of Bay Area's greatest family trees of public safety professionals, Montenegro, Serbia, it's all in that kind of yugoslavian Balkan penis. I grew up with Serbs, they're some of the greatest people in the world. It's my dearest friends in the world. Growing up were serbians. I could tell you they hated communism. They knew what this meant. I want to go cut 12 and you've seen this before. There's no sound on this. Meanwhile, Biden and Jill Biden, they can waltz around maskless in Washington, D.C.. So In-N-Out burger has to be closed in San Francisco because they don't want to be. They don't want to turn their front door into checkpoint Charlie. We'll talk about checkpoint Charlie later this hour if we have time. Police officers have to sign off in Washington. And give away their careers. The head football coach of Washington state university rolovich has to resign or be fired, meanwhile Joe Biden can waltz through restaurants. Without a mask on. Play the short tape. So there's Joe Biden, no mask on indoors doing whatever he wants to do. It's not about hypocrisy. It's about hierarchy. Email us your thoughts everybody freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. We're living in a state of affairs where we are using government power to go after the people that are doing the right thing, and we are pardoning and allowing subsidizing and rewarding people that burn down the Wendy's. The people that engage in violent crime, that walk openly into the southern border. The through sensitivity training, multiculturalist curricula hate crime laws, gun controls that punish or disarm otherwise law abiding citizens, but have no impact on violent criminals who get guns illegally. The vast labyrinth of other measures in other words is anarcho tyranny, which is what we're living through right now. Look,.

"Treasury. Think of Figure out how many bonds to sell this week. Uh, figure out the T bills. No Treasury would became central to defense in a matter of hours. So what? How do you sort through priorities, one of the decisions that get made at Treasury. Well, the first thing this your question reminds me is that Biggest comments possible. I mean, given what you just heard Karen and Condi talk about that is hard. By the same time. Americans alive. We have terrible damage in Wall Street, but we can markets can function. I think that message was out there. But then, Peter, we had a lot to do specifically, you mentioned terrorist financing that probably occupied our time right away at the Treasury. By the way, we're just across Away from the White House. I meant to hundreds of millions. The situation room and I just thank Indian, Karen for all the work, But this this stopping the terrorist financing was a big deal. Mark. I think the support from the rest of the government is going to just have a line. President Bush in the Rose Garden, said this war on terrorism will be fought on a variety of fronts. The front lines will look different from wars in the past. It is a war that will require the United States to use our influence and a variety of areas in order to win it, and one area is financial. This was essentially a rallying cry for A lot of people to it is candy. Noted that there's an inherent turf battle in this area, all sorts of agencies involved in finance and I think she said, John, we need an action plan. So, with that matter of hours we have we worked. Uh, we got a good action plan. And we wanted to be sure there were inter prattles that prevented information. So we had a phrase convey information don't contain information. And I think this idea of stopping the flow of money was key. That's the stopping a terrorist financing. Part of it was simply to stop the flow of money to the bad guys. But there was also a lot of financial intelligence that came from this network, and we were emphasized that that was a part of the spirit. We set up a war room. And can I just want to that point? So the moderator is Peter Robinson, former speechwriter in the Reagan administration. We just heard from John Taylor, former Treasury under secretary for international affairs in the George W. Bush administration. This is a reflection on the September 11th attacks on America, hosted by the Hoover Institution. Former secretary of State in the George W. Bush administration. Condoleezza Rice is among the Panelists here as well as former defense secretary in the Trump Administration. James Mattis and former counselor to George W. Bush. Karen Hughes and now back to moderator Peter Robinson Treasury became its own source of Intel. Oh course. Yeah. Yes, defense until you've got CIA established intel agencies, But Treasury develops its own source of intel on the terrorist. Is that correct? Yes, But of course, we're depending on the intelligence agencies. And this is something which I think is important. I think the coordination of the cooperation with the state and Defense Department was key. We didn't have enough of that. We set up a little a poster in the Treasury, the North lobby and said, We are at war. Are you doing all you can? And so the idea is that we were we were work trying to work as much as we can. And by the way, I many millions. The situation room. I'd make a comment about the economics. And the secretary of state or defense. There goes Taylor again. Talk about the economics, and the thing is, it was hard to get it. Get it in. Let me mention one other thing. I think international support was huge. We spent a lot of time on the phone first of the G seven, and then that's that's spread out. I've never experienced such cooperation. Everybody was our friend. It just It didn't last as long as I would like. But everybody was our friend, and that made it possible to do things we couldn't do otherwise. The U. N security Council. Help. Uh Condi helped I did mention whether thing which was kind of proud of at the time, there was a report of the 9 11 Commission came a little later. Um, gave us a day minus It was the only a There were seas and there were these even an hour. So I'm sure they miss the important parts and they just Oh, my gosh, Treasury is we've got to give them some great anyway A minus and, uh, in a sea of season, D's and F's so I'll stop there. Jim Mattis. You went to war You went to war between Vietnam and what and our, uh And Afghanistan. There have been conflicts, of course from Grenada to bombings in the Balkan peninsula, Serbia and so forth. But what as a professional what was it like to be fighting on behalf of it Nation? I don't know how to put this as a crude way to put it, but the nation was roused and angry. And righteous. And unified. Did that make a difference to you as a professional? Not really. I would just tell you, Um, that really wasn't what happened was many years of naval deployments. At least I'll tell you because I would attack in the Naval Service. Navy Marine Deployments. This was situation. Normal crisis deployments, routine deployments. There was a conviction best summed up by one of my, uh, my Marine from New York. Who, by the way, it was Muslim. Uh, who? Probably This is a perfect war general. They want to die, and we want to kill them. I mean, I'm giving you the rough soldiers, humor that allows them to go forward into the uncertain parade of the battlefield with a certain amount of conviction, and he summed it up. I think for a lot of us And the international support that John was talking about was immediately felt in the military area as well. And the CIA military connection, uh that that's really restarted. Their um, has held all the way through to this day. Where the military relations of trust and the CIA military, Uh, spirit of collaboration unleashed. I think a very effective early campaign in Afghanistan. When we were having to do things with the limit of man and machine. They were so far inland. Uh, Dr Rice and the State Department team. We're getting US air bases up on the northern flank of Afghanistan. This sort of thing, But really, it was what we do, and we had the most important thing was we had the logistics legs to do it. We have 11 nations come in without a whole lot of M O u. S or treaties raising of just show up. We had the Norwegians there and the Jordanians. The Turks. Canadians. New Zealanders, Australians. Um, the Germans were there. I just check to make sure they were on our side. This time. They were so tally Ho. Let's go. Uh, but we were united. As far as going after the tariffs. We lost much of that unity of purpose. With the attack into Iraq a year and a half later two years later, But at that time, it was exactly what the national security adviser who gave him one hour class to all new brigadier generals and rear admirals that I was in. The adviser was Dr Condi Rice, and she said We do things with our allies. Not to them. And I've never seen a finger 18 inches long as he instructed us on this primary, uh, thing but another point to bring up for those of us like me who than dealing with the Middle East and 1979. Um, we had no doubt about this..

"The culture and italy. Yeah yeah. I'm now. I'm thinking about when i went skiing in switzerland once we this was so cool and i wish that we had this in united states so much but when you funny because i was just saying that i was skiing. We also went hiking because there was not a whole lot of snow. It was like christmas. Two thousand fifteen. And my brother and i went skiing in switzerland and the very next day. We went hiking at the same like ski area. And we hiked up to a chalet where both days either on skis or on foot. It didn't matter once we got to the top. We had fun do a charlotte were taking different. We're in different places heading up different aspects of the mountain but there are lodges like you said there were people their houses up on the mountain and people live there and they have for so long. I mean you ski around him. You know these lodges but sir fondue in the sunshine on top of swiss alps. That is what i wish we. I wish we had a chevrolet culture here that would be your boarding hiking to food. Do cheese cycling tour through the swiss alps by the way. Lots of fun due zealand's kind of like to recommend latte potatoes tasty some pretty good swines as well so and beer. Yeah yeah it's You know i just kind of find. It's it's pretty amazing. I mean and and you just brought up like skiing. It's like disley you know a winter is such a great time to go over there too because there's good skiing. There's you get out. Do cross country. Skiing snowshoeing snowboarding. Of course you know all the fun winter. Thanks if you want to get you know if you're a hardcore like you know rock climber ice climber there's places for that so yeah and replaces yeah. This might be helpful to as if that interest you. You can rent everything you need over there so when my brother came to visit me that time when we went skiing in switzerland he brought me my my my out my outer like my ski pants and my ski jacket because those are two things. I didn't have obviously traveling with me. But i think maybe my goggles but that's it because everything else like the ski the hard equipment. We were able to rent very very cheaply in my experience. I've skied in to. I think two different ski resorts in italy and then one in switzerland and in all of those experiences i would. I feel confident saying it's way cheaper to ski in europe than it is in the united states. Oh yeah a even to rent. It's it's just it's really cheap And so i wouldn't let cost or or the fear of having to carry your baggage with you Stop you from exploring what it might look like to go. Ski over there because it's not. It's not that big of a deal and you don't have to bring everything with you. Yeah well i figured you probably could rent everything. I'm just surprised it's it's cheaper. No that's cheaper I mean if there's this big mountain west like in the west now. I live in montana. Big sky is it's like two hundred dollars for a lift ticket in a lot of the places in in colorado in montana. You know it's just getting so expensive. And so i wouldn't. I probably cheaper to go on. A ski into europe isn't a states right now. it might be. It might be an interesting thing. Is i remember reading. I remember reading. I think a blog post by somebody that i follow and she talked about like the tatra mountains which are doing poland and slovakia and that there are some areas there And again. I think like down in bulgaria as well and those places are even cheaper up. Then you know going. Obviously places like switzerland or france or italy. You're talking about going to places that probably have some pretty decent snow and yeah and then they're gonna have you know definitely cheaper prices for everything. Absolutely bulgaria incredibly overlooked underrated. I love bulgaria is country. It's so you guys need to go. It's gorgeous it's covered in mountains there's sandstone formations. There's wine country. There's the black sea on the east and becoming a promo pro-peace for bulgaria. It's like if they have everything it's such a good spot for and since we're talking outdoor i mean i've been biking in bulgaria not like multi-day thing but i have con- biking there and it's just like the snowcapped mountains will make you wonder where am i. What is this you know and here. You are in bulgaria. But nobody talks about bulgaria other. It's another flight like all that whole balkan peninsula. It's an extra flight but you get an extra reward for going the extra step i think. Yeah i yeah. I i think you're probably right like i said i mean i've only gone as far as croatia when it comes to that but everybody that i've talked to. I know somebody. That's actually from bulgaria. So yeah i mean he's you know he goes back every year because he's you know that's where he's from but You know everybody that's been in to those parts. I mean you know whether or not you're talking about the balkan countries or you then coming up until like places like romania or something like that everybody says you know it's worth that that extra time to get there because you know you're kind of in places too where you know they're just starting to maybe build a little bit more of a tourist infrastructure but you know it it's not it's not crowded it's cheaper and you just have their. The people are just like so ready to like. Welcome you as well. So yeah there's lots. There's there's a lot of places that i want to go and explore their so many places so little time. I know it's the problem. Isn't it so with you on the man. Yeah yeah yeah. So do you wanna share like We kind of wrap up. If is there like a certain adventure at certain place maybe you've been that's kind of one of your favorite places in. Yeah seattle's big question. What for for what we're going for for for going for getting into the outdoors or you have like one specific story that really kinda sticks out.

"Longer. Some people now a little. Yeah i mean if you use a company like bike tours. Which is what i was going through. You can customize your trip however you'd like so if you have extra time do take extra time because then you can spend more time in. The little village is on the way. And maybe do a couple more castle tours or like monastery or wine wine country tours you know so sounds really great and and you're right. I mean that's such a great way for like somebody. That's maybe you know worried that they wouldn't be in like you know good enough shape or something like that. I wanted something that was relatively easy. That sounds like the perfect thing to to do. Totally missing by an e there. I mean that's like recipe her speed. Just don't see children. Let's say one more thing because people might be thinking about. This too is being worried about traffic. And if you go on a proper bike tour like one basically what i mean by that is if it is organized and has By a company that's local which that's who bike tours uses as a bunch of local companies and so it's luggage supported which is great. So you don't have to take your bags with you like you don't have to wait on your bikes and also most of these routes are very carefully selected to be as little traffic as possible. So that's not generally an actual concern. Yeah no cars almost. Yeah if you if you do it right then you can be just completely supported and Completely on your own too. I mean. I never saw people who were in the background of my trip. It was just me. But you know my bags would disappear from the front desk and didn't reappear at the next hotel just on my own during the day and i had a. I had a phone. That could text if i had any problems. You know like. I felt totally safe and supported the hallway. So it's it is a really good entry point for those people seeking maybe some extra. Yeah yeah yet that having that supports great i mean. That's how i did the west highland way. It's your your bag. You put your bags somewhere into shows up at your next place and all you have to worry about is what you need for the day and off you go whether or not you're on a biker or you're walking so so brilliant so let's talk about some of our favorite places in the mountains. Because i know you. And i are both mountain people. Yeah so what did you know. I remember listening to a podcast of yours. Think it was. You were in bosnia. Who yes at the long and you're out kind of on a on a longer track. I think with some friends writing Yeah i loved that episode. By the way. I was just tell you that and be sure that we get to that in the show notes but yeah tell me about that because that was so little different it is yeah. It really was so Have you ever been to the balkans. The balkan peninsula. I've been to croatia. And that's okay and slovenia but they don't consider that the balkans are okay so so the via dinara is what we're talking about here and the this what this is is a trail of which consists of a bunch of trails that basically already existed have been connected together along the dark alps To form a long distance. We're talking if you were to do the whole thing. Start to finish in one go. It'd probably take three months for like a really Down yeah really if it person and so you can do pieces of this. All starting in slovenia all the way down to albania. So it goes through the entire former yugoslavia all it touches all of these countries which is the point. And so my girlfriend's i so i've montana and have this group of traveling girlfriends just so much fun to plan trips with. Because they're always like where. Where are we going next. what are we doing. And it's not city travel like we go hard we go big we've done Patagonia tracks and like island volcano hiking in nicaragua. And you know so we. We like to do big things and we decided to do a week. In the back country of bosnia on the via generic we picked up picked out a piece of the trail and got somebody in sarajevo to drive us like an hour out of town to the middle of nowhere where they're just happened to be like this trail connecting and i mean our friend jolie had figured all of this out just by what research she could scrounge up on the internet. You know and talking to people in sarajevo and trying to get like these logistics together for us and i will never forget her face when we got to this point and there was actually a trail there. She almost cried. Like it's going to work you know and and the poor driver who's like this twenty year old kid like a local. He's like are you. You want me to leave you out here. you know. We're like five women from montana with our backpacks ready to go. We'll see later. You know thank you so much for the ride in. He's like okay. You guys are crazy and so we set off and we ended up bending think it was the next four nights Just in the back country. We did two of them in forest service cabins and we didn't see anyone else hiking along this trail the whole time. We were there and we ended in suggests national park in bosnia in the in the southern part of bosnia. And that to me me of yosemite. It was like huge but it was incredible absolutely beautiful and we're talking mountainous really really really big mountains. Big views big landscapes and Super rugged we had apps to follow like where the trail we're using. Gps basically to get us from point to point and to make sure we were on the trail which sometimes existed in sometimes. Didn't it's kind of always a work in progress this thing but that was one of the most adventurous really adventurous trips. I think i've ever done in such a short time. He was only five days. You know but it six or something like that but just being out there and being so remote in a region where there's no people and none of us spoke the language you know because it's They're speaking serbian bosnian. And you know. That's that's foreign enough. That speak that yet. I should say but that was. We did it in such a way that we didn't have to bring our camping stuff We wanted to travel light. And so that's why we stayed home. Stay one of the nights where we actually stayed with a couple who lived on a farm and they cooked our meals and kind of us with Like lunch the next day and the two nights that we did in the forest service cabins. We had kind of camp food with us that we stocked up on in sarajevo before we left and man you know. I remember before that i was a little overwhelmed. I was really stressed out. That's just where. I was in life at that point and i was nervous about going on this trip into the back country in this state you know of like i'm kind of stressing out and and i slept so well on that. It was just so quiet. Been so i don't know it was just i think being so remote so far out there which is time to actually reconnect and rest and be quiet with nature and just each other. I mean we're the five of us are such good friends you know so it was a beautiful time to be out there with my girls in the backcountry horn places. This is i love this. This is my love language.

Caller Comments That Critical Race Theory Divides by Igniting Past Resentment

"Well, let's see. I've got a comment about critical race theory, which I Suggestion here after we called the people's Democratic race history that way, it can be anything you wanted to be imagined. Right? Well, anyway, so hard problem with critical Race theory is that it is designed to actually stir up old resentments rather than bring understanding and racial harmony, So it's counterproductive for what they claim they wanted to do. So it's sort of like what they did in the Balkan peninsula Back in 1990 the hero after when the Yugoslavia fell apart, you know, so you had the Croats and the Serbs and the Albanians and everybody else fighting each other because they stirred up all the hate It's from the past, and that's what this Bob, you know, That's an X.

"Round the northeast of the black and caspian seas were coming the meads and persians confused with days and the records of the time were sitting ins and summations from northeast or northwest came. The armenians from the north west of the sea barrier through the balkan peninsula came sumerians frigid and the hellenic tribes. Who now we call the greeks.
