"Reddit here new episodes from Ben Brock Johnson and Amorous Iverson each Friday on endless Red available on apple podcasts. This is here and now as the pandemic continues to dampen economic prospects around the world, the two largest economies are in a bit of a fight. China and the United States have been squabbling over the virus trade, Hong Kong and territorial disputes. In the South China Sea and Kevin Rod, the former Australian prime minister, is worried things are getting out of hand. He's currently the president of the Asia Society Policy Institute in New York and has written about his fears. In the current issue of foreign affairs, which will link you to adhere and now dot org's Kevin Road joins us from prison Australia Prime Minister Welcome to here now Good to be with you in the program. When you write that the growing tensions between China and the United States could lead to a crisis, even armed conflict. Do you really see that happening? Reason for writing. The article is because I think the risks are now riel. Political tensions between the two countries are at an all time high. At least that lost is We're in the midst of a presidential election campaign in the United States. And cheating Ping within Chinese politics is under internal pressure. So for those of us who look up this relationship closely important, Tio simply posed the question. Be careful what you wish for at a time like this because of crises erupt. Then cross this management becomes very difficult indeed. Well, our listeners obviously know about the domestic pressure on President Trump. But tell me more about the pressure on President Xi in China domestically as you see it. In the period since the cover daunting crosses hit in China A She Jinping himself has come under considerable internal criticism over his own handling of the crisis. Then with the slowing of the economy with rising unemployment. And, of course, further criticism as well in terms of the deterioration of China's relationship with a number of countries, not just United States but with Japan. With various countries in Southeast Asia, with India on the border and with various of the Europeans as well, Canada and Australia to be trying into the mix. So these various reasons there has been a reasonably Boston furious debate underway within China's politics. Very little of this is fully visible. The external I There's enough indication to suggest that President shaken itself is under some internal pressure. Hence why questions which arise from a crisis difficult to handle the times like this. He's also facing an increase in the heat of the rhetoric from President Trump. Let's listen here to President Trump talking about the Corona virus, which he's called the Kong flu and the China virus. Here. He is speaking last month it came from China. It should have never been allowed to get out. They could have stopped it. They could have stopped it easily. They chose not to. Is that kind of rhetoric matter in China? Does that matter In terms of the relationship between the U. S and China, Or does President she just see it as talk? Well in Chinese politics. When these things are said it does matter within Beijing because of China's own sense of nationalism responses, therefore need to be delivered. Therefore, it does contribute to another rule for the deterioration in the relationship. Myrrh roll point, however, in the article that I've just written is that if the political nature of the relationship between Beijing and Washington continues to deteriorate If you then in that context haven't incident on unplanned incident, an accident at sea or in the air and have been so many near misses of lost years. But then the politics of all this just makes it very difficult to handle escalation and then to deescalate. When you talk about a near miss of ships hitting each other or aircraft hitting each other, I assume that the place where that would happen. Would be around these islands in the South China Sea or parts of the South China Sea, which China claim sovereignty over even though a lot of neighboring countries also claim sovereignty over what's happened with that area in the South China Sea during covert 19 while we've all been focused on the pandemic Himself trying to see where you do have multiple Clement States. The United States has intensified its number ofthe freedom of navigation operations on deployment. Naval vessels through the area. Several years ago. That would have been about to such operations each year. Now we're up to about nine or 10 year on DH also in the coast, the US they go with him. 12 model limit which China has declared surrounding its territorial claims in the South China Sea. In response to this increased activity by the United States of being for the deployment of aircraft by the Chinese Air Force. And on top of that the United States has issued a change in its declaratory position. On the legal claims or the foundation legal claims shoot by China about its territorial position. The area as well put all these factors together. It does contribute. To a serious intensification. And that's why many of us who follow this relationship closely have bean issuing alarms of one form or another. What do you think could be done to de escalate the situation between China and the United States? Not just on the issue of But the South China Sea but also the trade war. Also Hong Kong also other issues that have come up between the two countries. The tastes off the overall U. S. China by that relationship. The list of disagreements. Now the fundamental nature is a very long one brought across the national security space brought across foreign policy, economic policy, trade, investment technology, hallway, human runts. The list is for medical If any significant improvement was to appear in the relationship, both sides would need to agree to push the pause button and to engage in some level of recent As far as China is concerned, for example, a positive way to improve the relationship with the United States would be to stop any further repressive measures in Hong Kong. If China was serious about wanting to improve the overall dynamics of the political relationship with Washington, it could start by, as were.

"Drugs of using one thing that helped Alex's mom who is a career. Cop at one point she sat him down and gave, him a drug test, and then they'll tomato but she helped him get. Out indirectly as well the one big moment where I realized what I want out of life is when my mother talked to me in, rehab on the phone she was talking about her and her and her fiance. When shopping for dehumidifiers she was so excited like she got a good deal on his dehumidifier and she's comparing them and talking about. The, differences in, them It was just the most boring in the world So mundane and I just couldn't help but think That's all I want I just want to be able to go with my girlfriend and get excited about getting a good deal, on a dehumidifier because when you're a heroin addict all you can think about is an upon. Humidifier or I would never buy one of those that's not even in my top. Thousand list of things I would buy right now the other thing that helped Alex get clean, was the internet using the internet, as a, tool whether you're trying to get higher. Stay clean isn't new back in. The nineteen nineties when ecstasy was exploding in popularity there were websites constantly updated with photos have pills. And information about whether they were. Good or bad same kind of sites. Exist today blue light is a website people use. It's like Mostly functions is. A harm reduction website so helping. People use but hopefully preventing them from. Overdosing yeah You. Can't learn where to get it on, their that's against the rules but is common information about. That Alex also uses a website called red it's a huge. Group of online communities sometimes called the, front page of the internet, where people can interact and trade stories, here's, a, recent post that Alex route if. You want an. Idea just imagine looking at your mother. Crying girlfriend angry and begging you to please stop imagine you're cute old grandmother saying you're breaking my. Heart imagine being ashamed having your most prized possessions owing a. Lot of money to a lot of people imagine having the flu times. A thousand you wanting to die imagine having multiple, close calls where you, did too much and couldn't breathe Imagine. Having a college degree and knowing that all you have to. Do to get rid of your misery is simply not use heroin again Then imagine getting in your car driving to the. Shady part of the city at two AM going into a run, down house was scary people. And seeing gun on the table. Spending money you borrowed from your fifteen year old brother for gas on heroin and then doing its second you get back to your. Car Alex says even before he was clean he used the opiates recovery community on read it but. It, was for a strange reason he didn't buy into the idea that sober life was possible. The most common thing I did was sit there and search all day for people who had been clean for a while and said they were happy because I needed to believe that was. That was possible and I didn't I I needed to see that, one hundred times before I, could even begin to believe it Because I would see, one post like that and I would. Be like there's no way and then I would see to. Posts where people are clean for a year and having heavy cravings and I'd be like yeah that's what it's like that's going to be me and it's like one post like that against one hundred posts saying I'm happy. I'd, take the one because I just couldn't believe that there was a way out of that Eventually Alex. Found his way out and remember when he mentioned that his mom talking. About dehumidifiers made him wanna live a normal life, well now he's living that normal life shopping. With his girlfriend Casey and I knew that it clicked for me when Casey and I were shopping. For shower curtains and, I, felt myself excited to. Go put them up in. The bathroom because we have picked the ones we liked and really, put some. Thought into it and I paid my money that ironed with Nigeria for them with her and That felt amazing to just care about something that. Monday, for here now I'm Ben Brock Johnson and we checked. In with Alex this week he's been.

"On the npr one app or wherever you listen to podcasts this is on point i'm ben brock johnson we're looking at judge brett cavanaugh president trump's pick to be the next to supreme court justice republicans and democrats are gearing up for what is expected to be a fight to the finish is this embattled democrats can win should win follow us on twitter and find us on facebook at unpleasant radio my guest all this hour is david savage supreme court correspondent for the los angeles times and joining us now also from washington is kimberly atkins the washington bureau chief for the boston herald and an attorney we should say kim thanks for joining the show again thanks for having me so just a quick reaction from both of you here i want to note something that's kind of popping off on twitter now people are talking about this is from jeff bennett source familiar tells nbc that justice kennedy had been in negotiations with the trump team for months over kennedy's replacement once kennedy received assurances that it would be cavanaugh his former law clerk by the way kennedy felt comfortable retiring kimberly what do you think about this yes there has been some rumors floating around for a little while about just how much involvement retiring justice kennedy had in the selection of his successor there's also a reporting today from politico that that similar but says that the time line is a little different that it was once kennedy announced his retirement went to the white house and spoke to the president that's when kennedy began talking a lot about judge cavanaugh his former clerk so not so much that it helped him make the decision to tire but that he clearly had favorite in this race and it doesn't seem that that could very well be the case my reporting throughout this process was that cavanaugh was always the front runner okay in part because he was a kennedy clerk kennedy kennedy clearly had a good relationship but also because president trump liked him and one of the reasons that president trump likes him so much could have been because of the word good word that anthony kennedy put in so really only the president and the retiring justice no for sure but the fact that i think that justice kennedy at the very least is found of cavenaugh in that way positively on his nomination so not necessarily any impropriety there at least how these things usually go david i don't know the details of this either it certainly would be reasonable i suppose and you wouldn't be surprised if justice kennedy said you know i really recommend judge a judge b because they're former clerks for mine they're excellent people i know them and i'd recommend him highly that wouldn't surprise anyone i don't think and i think it's quite likely that justice kennedy said something like that now the idea to say he was negotiating if his departure dependent that sounds like a different matter and sons i would find that a little surprising that if it could be characterized as justice kennedy said i will retire only if you agree to appoint nominate bread kavanagh or rake athlete who was also a kennedy clerk's recommendation sounds reasonable negotiations sounds who sort of out of line if something like that happen interesting let's let's hear some sound now from judge cabins himself in his speech last night supreme court nominee brad cavanaugh said president trump did more legwork than any president ever before to choose a nominee no president has ever consulted more widely talked with more people from more backgrounds to seek input about a supreme court nomination so whether we're talking about kennedy or or or trump i guess there was a pretty rigorous process at least according to the nominee i wanna talk to a caller now kathleen is calling from dayton ohio kathleen thanks for talking on point which your comment or question yes if taking my call but we know the dem's do not you know do not have the vote is however i want your panel or your couple of guests to discuss the strength of the argument that mitch center mitch mcconnell went off on that you know vote like this shouldn't happen prior to an election so talk about the strength and the validity of that argument if the dem's are to use it and here's a basic question why executive legislative initial why why are judges lifetime appointments a lot of questions in there kimberly any response yeah i mean look.
