"Lot historically. The New York State AG is definitely does institutionally consider itself to be one of the foremost regulators of the financial industry. Celsius was not really a New York company and was not really a financial company in terms of. But yeah, she saw this behavior and she said, this is not good. And one of the things that makes it a lot easier for her to do this and the SEC is that she doesn't need to prove securities for it. They don't need to be securities here. She can just say this is fraught. You are making these statements these statements were false. People trusted you because you were making the statements and they gave you money and they lost their money. And that's all she needs to prove. If it was the SEC, they would also need to prove that the things that people were buying were securities, and that would be a harder hurdle to clear. How hard would it be? I mean, I think the product at issue in Celsius correct me if I'm wrong. And I know in genesis, the winkle vie company. No, no, no. No, that's Gemini, Gemini. Genesis is digital currency group very soon. All right, fine. So back to Celsius, I believe the product at issue was basically they marketed it to look like a savings account, but it was very high interest like you could deposit your crypto or your dollars, I think, even and get you can. Stablecoins. You could deposit coins which are always worth $1 and you could get 8% interest on them. Yeah. And people, I think, viewed them as a relatively safe bet, akin to an FDIC insured. Bank account. And the SEC went after a few of these, but not all of them, and now there are people that do have money kind of trapped in the Gemini. Do I have that right? Yeah, Gemini, because it's twins, it's winkle vibe. Their account was Gemini. And yeah, I've been messaging with someone who has like thousands of dollars trapped in these accounts. And I feel like that is pretty clearly, isn't it? Securities, I mean, you can't go around saying. You're like a bank when you're not a bank. No, okay, that's the two different statements there. One of which is true and one of which is false. The one which is true is that you can't go around saying that you're like a bank when you're not a bank. 100% agreed on that. If you go around saying that your FDIC ensured the FDIC will crack down on you, you can't do that. There are very, very strict regulations about calling yourself a bank or implying that you're as safe as a bank, or that you have the government insurance that is inherent to being all of that. So insofar as Celsius was doing that. And this is what the Tisch James lawsuit is basically doing is that this guy was inclining that he was a safe investment when he wasn't. That's fraud that's illegal. 100%. The thing that's not true is that bearing savings account is pretty clearly a security because it's not an interest bearing savings account is not a security. If I have an interest bearing savings account at Bank of America, that is not a security. So it's not clear how the SEC has jurisdiction over that. Okay. It is confusing. It's like web of regulators in the United States. You have individual states attorneys, general, you have the federal attorneys, you have the SEC, the CFTC, the FTC, the Federal Reserve, the CFPB, the OCC. There's no end of regulators. And you need to as a regulated company be on good terms with all of them. And that one of them can come out of the woodwork. You barely even knew existed and start cracking down you. It's not easy being a financial company in America in terms of clear visibility into who you have regulators are. But that's what they that's what not to sound conspiracy for your risky. But that is what they want. Is what who wants? The financial institutions, they don't want to be heavily regulated, typically. We can say that's I'm not sure. I'm not sure about that. Come on. They don't want it, but they do want clear guidance, especially in crypto about what the security and what doesn't. Well, the crypto, well, no, the crypto people just want everything to be clearly not a security. Of course. They weren't the SEC to come out and say explicitly. Right. Well, they wish they have actually done. The SEC has actually come out and said that the two main ones Bitcoin and Ethereum are not securities. I think it's pretty clear that the bank lobby for example has been fighting the CFPB since it was even before it was created because they don't want to be strictly regulated. They don't want that kind of supervision. They don't want to be restrained in what they can do. I think that's half true. Banks in general prefer less regulation to more regulation. But at the same time, when there is when they're worried about upstart competitors. When they're worried about fintechs, one of their big comparative advantages is the fact that they have massive compliance departments who can make sure that they get everything right and who are in touch with 87 different regulators in 50 different states, right? And they have the wherewithal to be able to do that. They spend billions of dollars a year on compliance. And if you are some FinTech startup trying to compete with them, you can not spend billions of dollars a year on compliance. And that makes it very hard for you to get off the ground. And they kind of like that. They like that kind of oligopolistic status that they have of you can't break into this big boys club because you don't have deep enough pockets to be able to deal with that massive alphabet soup of regulators. So there you go. That actually proves what I was saying initially, which is the banks want there to be a big alphabet soup of regulators because it makes the landscape really hard to navigate. I think it's bad for regulation, bigger picture, to have so many different players with so many different ways of working, and various degrees of revolving door stuff going on. You know, there's people who say the CFTC is lax or the SEC is this or blah, blah, blah. There was no good reason why the SEC in the CFTC should be due different organizations. It makes no sense or the only reason for that is politics in the Senate. You know, one of them is governed by the finance committee and the other one is governed by the agriculture committee. And that's the dumbest possible reason to keep them separate. But it is the reason that has kept them separate. The one good thing that came out of the financial crisis in 2008 was at least we got rid of the ludicrous system that we had before then that there were two different bank regulators. There was the OCC in the OTS. And everyone's like, why are there two different bank regulators? That makes no sense. So the OTS got effectively abolished. Now everyone is just the OCC. That's good. But we should do the same thing with the CFTC. We should just abolish it and move all of that under the SEC. Yeah, there should be some consolidation amongst the regulators. But towards the stricter end of the regulation. Exactly. On the side of stricter, right? That's what the libs want. That's what we like bleeding heart liberals. It's money.

Do you think that they had to match up like they compared it like when you compare the colors on the wall? And you've got different ones. What's going to be the closest to his skin tone here? Match the paint. Make everybody study it. I really want to know teach you. Where was he going? Oh, he had practice. He jumps up. He shot out of a cannon. He was obviously nervous, nervous, your mouth gets dry. So your mouth gets dry, you hydrate. You tend to over hydrate. Now the way that man was running, it was clear. You had to water and fertilize something. That's why you had to do this. Josh Allen is a giant compared to case Keenum. He's keen. Case Keenum's like my height. He's not nothing. Case Keenum. He comes up to his shoulder. Yeah, there's definitely a wrap. I mean, Josh is a Josh has got to be 6 5, right? 6 four? He's 6 5. Somewhere around there. And case is 6 foot flat. Case Keenum has a lot of things going for it. He's got guts. He's got moxie. He's got toughness. He's smart. Not so much, which is how you can be as prolific as he was in college. And then not get drafted and spend your career. He's on his 7th team, I think. I was just going to say my head, touch me on this. Texans. Know that one. He's still the all time waiting passer in NCA history. He was on the rams, I believe in both places, both LA and St. Louis. I know that. He was on the Vikings, who's on the Broncos, he was on the browns. Now the bills, am I missing one or is this one? He was on the football team between Denver's Cleveland. When was he there? 2019. He started 8 games. He started 8 games for the commanders for whatever they called it. I think they were, I think they were still in 2019. They might have still been the Redskins. I somehow have blocked that out completely from one in 7. So he probably blocked it out as well. Well, you know why? Because it was 2019. And anything can happen in 2019 and quickly got forgotten once 2020. Four times. If you don't remember when we started two games in the last three years, went to an over Cleveland in 21. And he got traded in the same sequence where the browns did obviously acquired deshaun Watson. Then they were signing Jacoby Brissette and worked out a trade that had to stay quiet for several days. I ended up breaking that on a random Saturday afternoon that the browns had traded case Keenum to the bills. Which seems like a thing. It's a pretty big deal. What were you doing that Saturday afternoon? That's a great question. That one was not no offense to case Kim. That was not a big enough break that I remember the specifically what I would do. I'm pretty sure I was in my office like I always am at home in the basement waiting to go on home cam and talk about whatever exactly was going on. Also another inter update Matthew Stafford. Questionable. According to Sean mcvay, questionable means something different in the concussion protocol. That's a very specific thing. So he's not yet been cleared. He's doing some level of activity. This means he has a chance to get back for Sunday, but everything would have to get every box would have to get checked. And then he's going to be cleared, you would think, prior to Sunday morning. I can't remember the exact timeline on it. But really the next 24 hours are going to be crucial for Stafford, if not, it is going to be his backup, John wolford, gain a start against quite possibly called McCullough McCoy from the Cardinals. So that's your state of the NFL at this moment. We get more to get to here, some additional injury updates, also rich eisen is going to join the show. We think that what time is in Germany, we determine this. It's 9 hours ahead. So it's almost 8 40. Okay, so he's probably going to be at another dining dash dinner with Michael Irvine. Hopefully not. He was drinking wine when we talked to him the other day. That night of him rich sharing his schnitzel with him. And I was like, this is minutes before Mike said I'm out. We've also got some sneaky, good game. Yeah, buddy, we're on to get fired. We're on fire time for this show is up. So let's take a quick break here. Rich himself can review the job I'm doing and talk about a lot more important stuff from Germany after this. Tom peles, inver rich eisen, my final segment after a fun few days and what better way to celebrate this glorious run and a drink, one I've enjoyed greatly than to have rich himself all drink would be good too. Rich himself. Maybe he's had a drink. From Munich, Germany right now, rich, I believe you saw the Buccaneers today where we speak to you. I did, the bucks were working out at the academy for Bayern Munich. It's unbelievable. It's a sprawling complex that's just like an IMG academy, but just for Bayern Munich. It's kids. As young as I guess, from what I was told 8 years old who trained there. And if it all works out, they wind up playing for the big boy club, which is where Seattle is working out. This week, I mean, it was wild. And bucks came in today and went straight to the practice field. And then some of them are going out to dinner and enjoying their sights out before hitting a curfew and then starting all over again and we got a game in two days. People are lit. People are fired up here. Rich, nobody cares. Did you hug Tom Brady for me? I did not. I did not hug. So back off. Back off. That second hand. I'm just happy rich. I'm happy you found time to go see the Buccaneers amidst all the food photos that we've been watching from you. In your Instagram story for days now.

We're going to the home of Bayern Munich, the Seahawks are training on where Bayern Munich, the big boy club, and this is where, you know, all the youngsters who are training to hopefully join that club one day, you know, come and do their work too.

That's not necessary. Yeah, but who's to say Rogers didn't win with ayahuasca and his personal life. Maybe not as professional life, correct. But I mean, he might have had a win off season and off the field and a few losses on that not necessary. It's hard. It's a Friday. It's a meat Friday. I didn't even get to what we're having today.

"But anything else at all, as far as I'm concerned, cut them off at the knees. I have no desire to have any connection whatsoever with the Chinese, at least economically. I agree with you because people always wondering what is trying to cut out the semiconductor supply to the U.S. and my industry is very simple, just like if tomorrow Amazon does exist. Does that mean you no longer can buy groceries for dinner? Does that mean you're no longer any good you need? Because if there's a money to make always, there is a business to be. And if worried about the China too much, we become independent on China, but in reality and the U.S. is strong U.S. efficient U.S. as money resource technology and the people to build everything by their own. Does that mean you guys need to cut out for anyone from the world, but if we can not be strong by ourselves and definitely people will use that as an advantage to control the U.S.. All right, thank you, mister hope for being with us, Jason Ho, China observer, artificial intelligence expert and offering some thoughts about China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, as that region of the world continues to look like a possible problem area for this country. We'll continue with more on the Jimbo hadn't shown in a moment. I have long felt, I think that it was a noble effort, frankly, to try and open up China. Following the paranoia of Mao Zedong. It was a noble effort. And we tried, we should have from the beginning in forced the agreements that the Chinese were signing and then violating we should have from the beginning said no, you can't do that if you want to be a member of the big boys club. You've got to abide by what you sign. The Chinese learned quickly that the civilized countries of the world can be bamboozled. And that the Chinese can with impunity violate the deals they sign and the rest of the world simply offers a shoulder shrug and a big oh well. And that was a big mistake on our part. And it is time that the Chinese were called to account. On currency manipulation on a host of things that they have done intellectual property theft intellectual property extortion for countries which do business in China. If you, for example, open a factory in China. You have to hand over a lot of the trade secrets of your company to the Chinese. For that access to the Chinese market and they're out there such total whores as the National Basketball Association. Not a bigger pack of prostitutes in this country than the NBA. Oh, they love China. Anything to make China happy. They are absolutely shameless in that regard. And it's high time we rethought that. I just don't think that it is critical for the success of American business to have access to that market. It would be nice, but we're not dealing with a nice regime. We're dealing with the one of the most malignant regimes on the planet. Not as bad as the North Korea probably or even Iran, but so much bigger that their capabilities are awesome and therefore extremely dangerous. It's time to disassociate from the Chinese government. Again, with that involves some economic hardship, a little bit, but not enough to make it worthwhile to keep on sucking up to the Chinese again, it is just pointless to think that we're ever going to quote convert them by being nice. The only thing that could change the Chinese is to be cut off at the knees. They are fairly dependent on the American economy. And perhaps they might learn such civilized behavior as not lying on the deals that you make of actually giving your word on something and then letting that word be trustworthy. All kinds of things. We've got more to come on the Jim bohannon show. One 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo, one 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6, including something very basic. We don't think much about it.

"Into Kabul. I was in Afghanistan and we sent a cameraman out to go province. To interview the Taliban commander there because the Taliban were already in charge of that province, and you know, he said, women and men are not created equally. Women are not as smart as men. Women don't have the same brain. And that's what that's the translation of what he said. And I think that a certain population of the Taliban really believed that, that women can't do the same things that men can do. That they should not be going to school. They should not be going to work that they have to be covered. And. It's hard to explain, right? How people can think like that. And I know that not every single member of the Taliban believes that there are some who want their daughters to be educated. But I think that power struggle that's happening inside Afghanistan right now among the Taliban themselves has yet to kind of work itself out. What is it that makes you keep going back there? It's the people. You know, I have so many friends who are Afghan and every time I go, it just you reconnect. And it's 15 years of watching them flourish, right? Afghan women, you know, they've become teachers, lawyers, doctors, activists, and it's been it's really been a privilege to witness that over the last 15 years and that's what keeps me going back. Finally, last year you reported on the abduction experience of three Nigerian women who had been held by Boko Haram. Obviously a story very, very close to your heart. What are the parallels that you are drawing now from the experience that you had and the experience that other women are having? I think that it's important to share the story. So what happened to, you know, we might think three Nigerian girls being adopted by Boko Haram, that's such a faraway experience that we can't even imagine that. But actually, you know, I can relate to them in a lot of ways. And I think that the violence done to women in conflict and in war is universal, right? And we all know that rape has been a universal weapon of war. And so I think that by sharing similar stories, you know, we can bring the world a little closer together. This is a funk. Thank you so much for joining me in the studio. The time here in London is 7 31, a quick look now at the latest news headlines. The leading Republican Liz Cheney has accused her party of embracing Donald Trump and a cult of personality after she was ousted in a primary election. Miss Cheney was defeated by the political newcomer and Trump back candidate in Wyoming. China's water ministry has warned that severe drought conditions in parts of the Yangtze River could last well into September. It comes as local governments race to find new supply sources and irrigate crops ahead of the autumn harvest. And authorities in Venice have criticized two surfers who were filmed on the city's busiest canal, surfing along with sports such as paddle boarding and canoeing is prohibited underground canal, the pair have been caught and find, and those are the headlines. It's time now to cross over to South Korea where Monaco's soul correspondents jab as kwok is standing by J welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. Right, what's making the headlines where you are? President yunsong y'all has just passed his hundredth day in the office with an abysmal 20% approval rating. And at the moment he's just seems to be struggling a bit about finding his footing still in the office and he's going through a lot of what a lot of pundits are saying, a similar pattern as Joe Biden. He seems they seem to be doing things, but then it doesn't seem to translate into approval ratings or some kind of a good PR strategy. What's going wrong for him? At the moment he's been having a lot of infighting in his own party and there have been a myriad allegations against the First Lady as well, but none of them have been proven. But I think the general sense is or the bigger problem, the bigger picture problem is how South Korea is becoming a bit unsure about where they see themselves in the world. Whereas there are so many big problems from Ukraine, Ukrainian war, to the U.S., China conflict that are happening right at our doorsteps. But South Korea seems to be playing a very, very safe and a reluctant role of being a quiet neighbor. So tell us what problems that could land South Korea in in being a quiet neighbor. Sure. So the problem has been that in the past 30, 40 years, it has risen from the ashes of the Korean War to one of the top ten economies in the world. And in sectors like cars or tech, and now even entertainment that we have seen through COVID, it's really shown that it can punch above its weight. And so, I mean, more young people, especially seem to be looking to Korea to give some kind of solutions or at least some alternatives to what's going on around the world. And set the agenda as one of the very rare countries that has lifted itself out of war poverty. Tell us a little bit more as well in terms of the way that South Korea is placing itself recently when Nancy Pelosi went to Taiwan. Your president just had a phone call with her. There was no great meeting when she was in town. And there is that constant U.S. China Taiwan push and pull nearby, isn't there. So where does South Korea try and place itself? Sure. So South Korea has long been reluctant to set the agenda on the international stage. Or even make a strong statement or that phrases the U.S. or rebuke rogue actors on the international stage, it has rarely placed blame on even North Korean hackers. Publicly. So this so called strategic ambiguity has been the long held foreign policy for them. And it has, in a way, helped the country to rise up the ladder of the world economy and become a major exporter. Because it has not taken sides in an international conflict or led a global initiative that might not be popular with a certain part of the world. But as you just mentioned about the recent visit by Nancy Pelosi, the president made a very strange move by opting to speak to her just on the phone while she was still insole. I mean, both of them were in Seoul. And he was on, he was on holiday, he said. But that was a very strange move that a lot of pundits called and appeasement of Beijing because, of course, this was just the day after Nancy Pelosi had left from Taiwan and it had brought such a such a strong response from China. So in a way, a South Korea is being squeezed a bit in the region because China obviously is the strongest. Is the biggest export market and also in a significant import. Importer as well for South Korea. I think China, the trade with China is as big as that of the U.S., Japan and the European Union combined for Korea. So obviously it's South Korea has to walk this tightrope going forward. But as we've seen with this escalating tension between the U.S. and China and of course, between the U.S. and Russia over Ukraine, South Korea is finding itself in this weird position where it wants to play a bigger role on the international stage B you know join the big boys club, if you will. But it has not been able to be very confident in making a statement that way. Monaco's soul correspondent, thank you for joining us on the globalist.

"Scott spacing. Author of China hand a thriller. And more calls here. First, let me simply note after Mao Zedong took power and of course we saw that the paranoia that existed during his reign and he died and son of a gun. It looked like reasonable people had taken over in Beijing. And so the powers that be in the world said, welcome to the big boys club. Here's your seat on the UN Security Council and membership in the World Trade Organization all the rest of this. Here are the agreements that you make sign here here and here. And I'm not sure that there is a single agreement they've ever signed that they didn't break. They're a pack of liars. I refer, of course, to the Chinese government. I don't see why we deal with them in any way, shape, or form. I mean, we've got to find another source for rare Earths. I don't see why we buy anything made in China. So a broom costs more made elsewhere. So what? I really see no reason why we deal with them at all Scott. Yes. You've raised a bunch of points there. I'll try and I'll try to comment. I'll try to link them going from mile to the present. I mean, what I'd say is look, I think there's no debate that Mao Mao is a disaster and that will culminate with the cultural revolution and complete disaster for China. And China was impoverished. You had hundreds of millions of people living very pre modern lives and that was very bad. I will say that really starting with Deng Xiaoping in 1980 two, you could say, well, for the last three, four decades, China was perceived to be moderating a lot, right? And they certainly took a more pragmatic course with regards to the economy. And there was a view and you could say it was a theory, but it was there was a view, and it's not unreasonable in my view. There was a view that the best thing to keep China on this peaceful course as they developed is to integrate them into the world economy, as you said. To allow them to continue to develop. I mean, like I said, I remember viscerally how poor China was, even in the 90s, right? And I don't think, and then I will say that the TO agreement and trade with China has helped and has helped lift hundreds of millions of people out of poverty and I think that's a good thing. And then it's although I don't particularly care, especially when they say they'll do one thing and then they violate the agreement. Well, so I'll get to that now, right? So on the one hand, what I'm trying to say, that's not to paint this with two finer brush. But on the one hand, it's a good thing for the Chinese to not be impoverished. Frankly, it's also benefited U.S. consumers because Chinese have a lot of talented and motivated people and skilled workers and they've built made a lot of things for the U.S. that's benefited U.S. consumers. So I'm all for that. But I do agree with you to your point about breaking agreements. What I had seen is certainly in the last two decades since the WTO agreement, China has on the one hand promised in many cases to open up their economy to reduce tariff barriers to provide licenses to operate in China to have a more fair and balanced kind of trading relationship with the U.S. and they largely have kind of dragged their drag their feet on that. And the U.S. has remained certainly until Trump and even with Trump, very open to Chinese goods and the trade imbalance is really out of control. And frankly, a lot of that or at least a big chunk of that is driven by the barriers that make it so difficult to sell into China from outside of China. So I'm all with you that on the one hand, where it makes sense where China has an advantage or where we don't want to make things. Of course, China should make it we should buy and we should have an equal trading relationship. But I also think if it's something that is critical, I don't care whether I agree whether we would prefer to make it if it's important, but then I go beyond brooms and we should just make it. Well, I agree. That's my other point, as I say, in cases where it doesn't logically make sense for China, if the only reason China is making it is because they're subsidizing it and blocking imports, of course, then that should not, we should not allow that. We also, to your point, we also should never allow ourselves to be held captive by China or coerced to do what they want simply because they are a monopoly producer of anything from pharmaceuticals to semiconductors to anything important by agree with you, the U.S. needs sulfur alliance in critical technologies and I believe we've let that go, currently.

"Guerre badger and an anecdote. Recently we had a task to save some of our soldiers, but we couldn't get to them because we were under heavy shelling. And on the radio you could hear calls for artillery to back us up. And artillery answered, we can't help you. We have no more shells. That may be changing. In his nightly address, Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky said the effects of allies powerful new precision weapons are being seen on the front for the first time. Our defenders are inflicting noticeable blows on warehouses and other critical logistics points of the occupiers, he said. Despite the huge toll, the war is taking on Russia militarily, economically, and politically he says Putin will continue because Ukraine is just a piece of his overall plan. Russia wants to have a new European security architecture, but also they have ambitions in the broader international order. If I would simplify, I would say they would like to revert to the 19th century. It's basically a concept of a new concert of great powers. A kind of big boys club says this where countries like Ukraine, the Baltic nations, or even Poland wouldn't necessarily have full sovereignty or control their destinies, such a vision is completely unacceptable to the west, she says, but she doesn't believe Putin will stop until somebody stops him. Eleanor Beardsley in pure news, dnipro, Ukraine. In the Pacific Northwest, tribal governments are pressuring President Biden to make good on his pledge to uphold treaties in Indian country. Tribes there want four large dams removed from the snake river in Washington state in order to protect the salmon, whose numbers are dwindling. And pierce Kirk siegler reports. Growing up, Shannon Wheeler heard stories passed down from elders about the enormous salmon run here on this tributary, just a few miles upstream of the snake river.

What's the second sarly? Yeah, okay, yeah, yeah. The second version of fucking but barrel. I'm very early. I would normally not have any of those Pokémon, but that's just like the strong Pokémon I've been catching the other way. And then they get replaced as a stronger one comes along. I have Lux ray alpha rapid ash. I feel like it looks raised just on because of its fangs. It's different things coverage, you know? Yeah. Right. And I forgot. Railway. Yeah, yeah, yeah. And something else. I don't know. They're not great. I'm not attached to them. I'm not like, oh, I need these Pokémon. Catching Pokémon, but like, I don't know, I just found some more starters. So I'm like, okay, cool. Maybe I'll try to get the alpha versions of those. Ideally, I want a team of all alphas. That's what I'm going to do. I'm just going to have a big boys club, and that's what I'm going to call them, and we're going to hang out and play video games all day. Marcus, tell me what I haven't been able to fight any alphas yet because I just haven't been strong enough. I mean, I thought some, I got like an alpha cricket dot in like a Baba. They're all the same. Yeah, but like what about it in the game do they have higher stats or something? They're bigger and I think they have better stats. Oh, like their IVs. I don't look into that. I don't care about that stuff. For me, it's just a bigger Pokémon. And I'm like, bigger is better, baby. Let's go. I will American. Let's fucking go. The dope. I mean, honestly, an alpha of all our favorite Pokémon would be so cool. Oh my God. If I could have a fucking toxic croak on my team on a fucking 9 tails on my team, toxic crew? Nice toxic. I'm so sorry. That's a PEX. Oh, yes, yes, you're right. This game would be very cool.

"Portion of the program with Peter Schweitzer the cofounder and president of the government accountability institute in New York Times bestselling author and his latest work is titled red handed its published by Harper and subtitled how American elites get rich helping China win There is no doubt that there has been a stampede on the part of the corporate America and a number of other corporate entities around the world to gain access to that 1.6 billion population Chinese market where people do for the first time in their history have a fair amount of money to spend after a lot of time in a strictly third world status They don't have a lot of political freedoms But money they got And under the new rules there although the Chinese Communist Party still calls the shots but it's kind of a sort of kind of thing Revisionism I'm sure Mao Zedong would call it and as I've noted before you could power Beijing off of now spinning in his grave over those millionaires driving around Shanghai with their Ferraris So Peter is the fact that American elites are getting rich helping China win Wouldn't they reply hey it's three enterprise and that's what we're practicing Well they probably would Jim but what you have in China today is not a Marxist Leninist system You have a market Leninist system And what I mean by that is yeah they have markets They're not entirely free markets They're really controlled by the Chinese Communist Party But what you have is you have a lemon system which is of course the governing elite Chinese Communist Party is calling the shots So it's a situation where for 30 years the leadership in the United States Republicans and Democrats certainly corporate America Wall Street and Silicon Valley have all been saying that if we open up our markets to China if we invest in China they're going to become more like us They're going to wear our blue jeans but they're also going to start embracing liberal values The fact of the matter is the opposite has happened The government in Beijing is more repressive now than it was 20 years ago And you could argue just some extent that they have rubbed off on us more than we have rubbed off on them Well you certainly could so argued that the great opening up to China the period after Mao Zedong's admittedly rampant paranoia that period of time in which Mao was gone and the big boys club said to hey China okay you get the permanent seat of the UN Security Council with the veto You can join the World Trade Organization all these other groups You've got to agree to a certain things Sign here here here and here and the Chinese signed everywhere I'm not sure there is a single agreement they ever signed that they have a violated repeatedly be it manipulating their currency to export their unemployment being stealing intellectual property at worst at best looking the other way while that intellectual property is being stolen And I would even go as far as to say okay maybe you could have called it a noble experiment naive in retrospect but noble But now after decades it's over Okay anybody who thought that was gonna work it's over Now let's cut the crap I would frankly be in favor of cutting them off at the knees And for those who would say yeah well they won't buy any more of our tea bills My response is what's the nicest thing a drug dealer can do to a junkie That's cut them off We are red ink junkies and if they were to cut us off my response would be thank you China for some momentary pain and eventual security while we learn to live within our means And your thoughts Yeah I mean look the reality which I think you are captioning with your attitude is that Beijing particularly under president G use itself in a race and a competition with the United States And they've been quite open and explicit about this And president Xi has said that the technological race is akin to a war and whoever wins the technological race is going to seize the commanding heights and become the dominant convening authority on the planet That's pretty scary And China is very confident they're going to win that race provided provided they continue to get access to western capital markets and western technology And we have a situation today Jim where you have the largest corporations in America companies like Google and Microsoft that are literally sponsoring with money and also with brain power research laboratories in China looking at say artificial intelligence that are known to be linked to the Chinese military So you literally have America's great minds in corporate America in the area of technology subsidizing supporting Beijing in their race against the United States And I think as I've said China is very explicit about what they think that means and the fact that they can win that race with our help The Chinese certainly in terms of technology aren't doing too badly I mean the high tests of the hypersonic missile space program said probes to the moon They plan to be the second country to send people to the moon a very ambitious things that are coming forward They have their own space station up there with the people aboard And they are a Chinese not the Russian American whoever wants to pay space program And that front they seem to be working in terms of the capitalism part I mean they build entire cities that are sitting there empty They don't seem to have a great handle on free markets but technology they're not doing bad are they No that's right I mean they're ability to take technology and apply it is remarkable where they still are substantially behind the United States is sort of the innovation and the development of new technologies And this is where they really need access to U.S. companies and U.S. technology in order to compete with the United States And the problem is we're giving it to them Microsoft for example actually accepts interns from China's People's Liberation Army there are all sorts of examples of American corporations who are quite happy to invest in Chinese companies that develop military technologies sell technology to those companies It's the classic phrase that Vladimir Lenin used that we are going to the capitalists are going to sell us the rope by which we will hang them The Soviets didn't have enough rubles to accomplish that They didn't have the economy where the amount of money to throw around Beijing certainly does And we are in a situation now where we've got a lot of people on Wall Street and in Silicon Valley that are quite literally selling the rope to Beijing and they mean to hang it with us So we need to decide what we are going to do as a country about this And the problem is compounded by the fact that you have certain people in America's political class which have commercial ties with China which I would say in a understatement has clouded their judgments in how we should be dealing with China Now I think we call going all the way back to the Clinton administration That was at the end of the last century and I forget who it was what some company provided the Chinese with the technology required to more accurately insert satellites in orbit and somebody in the Clinton administration said excuse me but the same technology that helps you accurately put satellites in orbit is the identical technology that helps you aim intercontinental ballistic missile warheads more accurately And they were called on the carpet and as I recall that came to an end Now have we really lost that much ground in the last three decades Absolutely That was Laurel was the name of that company and you're absolutely right in the way that you described it The.

"On Twitter at Jimbo talks Don't talk about China in this portion of the program of course it's been much in the news of late The impending Winter Olympics part of that news also of course the Chinese and their ambitions regarding Taiwan in a host of other ways of brinkmanship with the U.S. forces in the western Pacific and on and on We are a long way removed from the nation of well over a billion just a simple illiterate peasants Today China is approaching us in terms of the gross domestic product China of course has nuclear weapons that has intercontinental missiles it has an active and a pretty effective space program It is a player and although the fall of the evil empire left Russia as well essentially a giant nuclear armed third world country which depends on a natural resource energy pretty much for its national income not so the Chinese They are a player The key question of course is what is their intent in terms of being a player Hence we are talking tonight with Mark L Clifford He is president of the committee for freedom in Hong Kong That website is the C F HK dot org and he is the author of the book today Hong Kong tomorrow the world from Saint Martin's press and subtitled what China's crackdown reveals about its plans to end the freedom everywhere Mark good evening Good evening Jim Good to have you aboard here tonight I must say being I guess maybe somewhat cynical but a person who heads up the committee for freedom in Hong Kong is heading up a group with a rather risky shelf life Yeah well let's see what sort of success we have We were formed last year to try to push among other things for getting political prisoners out of prison in Hong Kong I have to say the idea that Hong Kong would have political prisoners even three years ago was almost unthinkable So we're new and we're looking to try to do what we can to advance the cause of freedom in Hong Kong But not easy under the communist Chinese rule When of course the British ceded Hong Kong back to China and the government is Beijing said oh we'll leave Hong Kong in its special status that is to say a source of some considerable hard currency a little if you will pocket of free expression and free self governance I have to really ask that anybody by that notion I mean if you look at the Chinese track record with the Uyghurs with the Tibet with a host of other entities did anybody really think they were going to let Hong Kong stay there Is this festering sore of democracy Well I think it was always a problematic I think a lot of the Hong Kong elite certainly indulged in wishful thinking And it wasn't just them even cynical journalists and I count myself as a recovery in journalists occasionally had our moments and we thought that not only could Hong Kong thrive for some time but that it could perhaps stand as sort of a place at Beijing might learn from a sense that you could have this little enclave You could have Chinese people or they could be ruling themselves We had great government there our own taxes our own currency And the beginnings of democracy I mean Hong Kong was free but it was never democratic under the Brits under the British who ruled for a 156 years A pretty light catch colonialism but still a colony And it was time for the bridge to leave And so I think everybody tried to make the best of it and see if they could do And it was clear as time went on that China was not going to keep its word despite an international treaty at the United Nations It's just sort of ripped up the trade Let's face it ever since the end of the Mao Zedong paranoia and the other big powers of the world decided to admit China to the big boys club Here's that permanent seat of the UN Security Council with the veto That's all yours the World Trade Organization all the rest of this Just sign here and here and here and the Chinese of course signed and everywhere they signed I'm not sure if there's anything they ever agreed to ever They didn't violate concurrency manipulation exporting their unemployment to the United States a theft of intellectual property is there anything they haven't broken their word on I mean I will grant that opening up China was a noble experiment But it flopped miserably and surely the hell the world has learned You can't trust this government ever ever in anything Am I being overly cynical I don't think you are I think it was worth trying engagement because the alternative was seem to be worse China was liberalizing not politically but certainly economically and socially But interesting the 1980s were more open than the 1990s the 1990s were more of an in 2000 and of course the last decade has been a disaster I mean the Ascension to power of Xi Jinping not only shocked and surprised many many people in the open societies But I have to believe that the guys.

"Welcome back to the Jim bohanna show at one 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo on 866-505-4626 we're talking with elbridge Colby former deputy assistant Secretary of Defense the author of the new book strategy of denial It's from Yale University press as to go to some calls here I must say that some of what we have just said reminds me of the old linen axiom when it comes time to hang all the capitalists they shall be found bidding on the rope Particularly our dealing with China where American enterprise from the NBA to retailers are slobbering all over themselves in a chance to get at that burgeoning $1.6 billion billion people market and a market where more and more of those Chinese are entering what would be called the middle class and it strikes me that we are in some ways a pack of horrors I mean I'm sorry but there are more important things than the almighty dollar Well I think you're I mean I think you're absolutely right in the sense that I think our policy over the last generation that policy of a kind of unfettered engagement has been a debacle And I think John Muir Simon wrote a very good piece in the last issue of foreign affairs to this point I mean I think that there has to be some level of commercial engagement just given the size of the economies and even historically it's been common for rival states to trade with each other but there has to also be a political and sort of you could think of as a kind of a geo economic perspective And I think we've seen it with COVID and with their large scale theft of our high technology and defense related industry and kind of secrets I mean this can't go on So I think we're going to have to figure out how to trade with them in ways in particular where we reduce our exposure especially those most sensitive parts of the economy and anything they could use to try to coerce us which is what they're doing with the Australians right now So they're totally willing to do it But I think certainly there's more to being an American citizen than the almighty dollar I agree with you about that Although the business of America is business at the same time so we can't ignore it obviously We can't ignore it No I would go so far as to say that our experiment in trying to open up China post Mao was a noble effort but it failed I mean we said you know hey welcome to the big boys club Here's the permanent seat on the UN Security Council Here's your UN veto The World Trade Organization all the rest just sign of the dotted line and they've signed everywhere the dotted line and broke I guess virtually every agreement they signed from not to exporting their unemployment to the country by this country by means of currency manipulation to the theft or at least looking the other way at the theft of our intellectual property I mean just right down the line the government in Beijing is a pack of liars and so we tried that but I think you're right Forget about it I mean except for a bare minimum We do not need to deal with China It's not I mean it's not on I sort of don't put it on them I put it on us for being fools about it I mean I would say the first stage that Nixon opening to China and bringing China into the coalition at the Soviets who were the bigger threat at the time that was a success but that was done by the end of the 80s Then we moved into this position of opening up China And I think that could have been a good policy that would inevitably China is going to become part of the global markets But they were never held to account So there were all these promises made and pledges and commitments as you suggest associated with the WTO The China was never held to account And they conducted massive IP theft force joint ventures I mean you name it it's all listed out there It's all very public now And I think there was an arrogance that particularly in our elite that held over from hey will we take it over We dealt with the Japanese and they had shown they had play feed And we figured the same thing would have with China And the consequences have been far far greater with China both because of their I mean the scale of how sort of they were trying to take advantage of this but also the scale of their economy And now we're paying the price and I think we will be paying the price for generations Justin and Manchester New Hampshire good evening Good evening Jim Thank you for taking my call on our speak with you Jim And thank you to your guests as well I wanted to ask both of you gentlemen I know this would be a worst case scenario What do you think the chances of us seeing a third World War in our lifetime And if so if you think there is a chance what alliances do you see forming for that Interesting Well of course they've got this she Putin's summit coming up and supposedly defensive alliance what are the odds in the direction that Justin is going Eldridge What are the odds that the two decide okay Putin you take Ukraine and we China will take Taiwan Let's see which the United States reacts to Is that even remotely possible can they miscalculate what our reaction might be Well I think it's certainly possible And in fact I imagine they're thinking about it And I'm not sure that we can assume that it would be a miscalculation in the sense that that depends on the military balance and what I think as justice pointed out what those alliances are So I think World War three is a distinct possibility I'm always load to put probability on it because I'm not a widow More so since the days of the evil empire and regret we have a clock that has times that do not wait for us so we will pause and come back with more of that in.

Yeah we have some big guys raising money for this because they're probably okay on their statewide and congressional. We have enough hotel rooms.

"Good afternoon it's wednesday. The first of september twenty twenty one just after one o'clock welcome to uk. Call them news today. Like roman civil myself. Brian garish. And we're delighted to be joined by. Alex thomson Well where back all the time. School is restarted. School is response started. So we'll reports on the madhouse that sir you caddy well. Yes and of course What happened while we been away. Afghanistan seems to be the only thing that's been going on a fascinating but he joe change of topic for the nation. Yeah so joe. Biden is defending. The extraordinary success of the afghanistan evacuation amid criticism. Will most of the criticism seems to be coming from the uk government. And hopefully alex something to say about that in a second but Well the question is how much of it was to do with joe biden and probably not very much because Us over while we were away he well. The express here said appeared to fall asleep during a meeting with the israeli minister. Mr bennett and well ha'aretz. I did notice. We're saying that this was untrue that he had maxi phone sleepy just looked like he was falling asleep or the looked like he was sleep. So the question. Is you know how much of this was. Spiders decision will come onto that in the second in the meantime thought Tony blair's Response to this was was probably the best of any that i saw He said today account remember when he actually said this was during the break. Anyway today. we're in a mood. That seems to regard the bringing of democracy as a utopian delusion an intervention. virtually of any sort as a fool's errand that we didn't need to do that's we didn't need to leave afghanistan. We chose to we did an obedience to imbecilic political slogan about ending the forever wars as if our engagement ended twenty. Twenty watt was reportedly combustible commitments twenty or even ten years ago and circumstances in which truth numbers declined to minimum and no allied soldier had lost their life and combat for eighteen months. So alex maybe i could say welcome to the program. The response from many of the british establishment figures have tony blair could be described as up. has been quite marked But as we'll see in a second it shouldn't have come as a surprise to anybody because the negotiations with the taliban be going on for a very long time said halfway through the trump presidency So why is anybody surprised about this all seems a bit fishy it a bit contrived this got to be some attempt to distract from something might Because as long ago as ten years Wrong poll and he was just the most vocal of many in the us political scene but there was some in britain to will saying if we do not pull out two thousand eleven we will still be there in ten years very foreseeable. The bitter cynicism of tony blair's tone as you just started. That unafraid is how to interpret any other way than that. Britain by being in the big lead by being in the big boys club takes it opponent self that some of its troops will just have to be sent out as well policemen on a kind of room basis permanent rotational basis of battalion. And this is of course is completely unlawful because troops off of the defensive realm and have to be agreed every parliamentary period in until the very recent past every year in a new active adamant. So that we don't get tyrannized. One of the provisions of the bill of rights was that this would come in to effect so that we didn't have a standing on the colonel over two courses. That black is more at home. In the internationalist globalist and the eu model over the ownership of troops which is they are owned effectively by corporations and international bodies and they can be pledged permanently together with warships and air assets and space assets and cyber acids and intelligence assets in a way. That's not local in the british constitution is only britain within the european media. Seen as i can see which is spinning this line to its domestic audience now via mainstream media that this was a betrayal of us and our military interests on the continental though set nations like no way in the netherlands with very heavily invested in sending troops to afghanistan. There hasn't been any line of that has been much more concentration on civilian deaths rather more. I think accurate and and humane way of looking at the situation so if people have only been listening to mainstream talking heads in britain about the sad tragedy of afghanistan will it certainly is a sad human tragedy and incomparable. But i'm afraid entirely will see. It was found back in two thousand and five when i was on shift work for the first time as a young age q. Officer we were there on a special operation for the protection of sas troops who were accompanying the afghan national army in eradicating poppy fields and within a couple of hours of the sas accompanying the a anna. The local troops newly recruited. It goes into a poppy field area. Either in the northeast in dongguan in the south helmand the opium factories we could see on. There is intelligence acids was starting to cook get. This has got to be well unusual similar things in the city of london. The the same time it's got to have been a foreseeable plan and from the beginning. The west was in afghanistan militarily to ensure that the drugs got to europe to keep the financial system afloat. This was well known by people who are great dissidents and outside fifteen ten years ago. But i'm afraid now plausible main street where we're going to be coming onto that issue of drugs and just a second but just before we do that This is telegraphs headline this morning. Am i six. Holes talks with taliban to prevent terrorists plotting attacks from afghanistan. But my question. Alex is you know who exactly has been airlifted out of afghanistan into europe and into the united kingdom. And you know are we d think. Are we going to see a re igniting of the types of so-called terrorism that we've seen over the last twenty years with happening within the uk were islam and terrorism. Starting to come to the surface again which we haven't seen since cova strangely enough. It's almost as if the government is was too busy with with another agenda and didn't have time to run any terrorist attacks in the uk. But maybe i'm just being too cynical there. I'm afraid go forbid. i do. Foresee the likelihood if more shots and banks in western europe and north america and australasia. Because we haven't had those for a couple of years. The script of islamic terrorism has been somewhat retired. That has we'll be covering from switzerland. Shortly there all these nebulous claims of covet related to terrorism. That doesn't ever a bogus islamic angle attached to it as yet but who knows it is likely to swing back into action because in order to Have one of these waves of terrorist threats. You need an inscrutable nation. More instable the better. The less the intelligence officers let alone. The general public really know about the culture and mentality particular country in afghanistan. It really the back of beyond all the major power certainly the west ones. The more plausible is to wind up a few Mind fiddle mind control. People let them loosen the west with libyan islamic fighting group in manchester of course and then plausibly denied that it was anything to do with the western spooky. Yes indeed so at anyone and eddie thought that That this should be understood. This is the council on foreign relations from March twenty twenty and their headline.

But it is training camp time so we should talk a little bit of chiefs while before we get outta here first of all open question. Anything that you've seen or heard from camps so far that picture interest. And i've really liked. The sound of one phone hill. Was saying how he pointed to the fact that he's one hundred percent ready to go. He acknowledged the fact that he wasn't one hundred percent austere. and i. i know it's easy for people to turn around and say they weren't under percent when they have it down yet but we've hill genuinely believed that he meant it and so for him to say that he's one hundred percent and then you've got him paired with matthew dominant last year but the year before as a pair. They looked really good. They made it so much. Easier for the cornerbacks super bowl run and i think we've us not really known what we're going to gather. Defense is how. I think foreign hill being ready to go. He's a massive bad news for the defense. Yeah i think I think but i would say is I've really been impressed with all orlando brown. The way he's been handling himself just as He seems ready. Just he's just fired up ready to to to see what this is new logo line can do. And he's east very much pa the kingdom of the moment as knee. All of those guys are right. Tracy I'll say why i actually just wrote about orlando brown good Good call brad And and the other part of is the trey smith at that quote man that quoted camp out the other day talking about how much he loves violence and these people up and man. He knows how to. He knows how to get the hype train. Going form 'cause i mean that's that's gonna fire up chief's fan here and a guy say you know he just and you could see in this space. He's just like oh man. I love this. I love just beating people up any kind of said that in the was it. What was the jess schwartz. Called the big boys club. He said kind of a similar thing in that clip too. So you know this guy when he's on the field he's going to try to bury someone. And that's what the chiefs offense line really needed the self-proclaimed goon i love it. Yeah can't wait to see them actually with pads being able to hit each other. I think that's gonna be really fun to see. Especially with smith and orlando brown was just gonna say like the more the longer goes on the more. I'm convinced that trey smith is going to be the guy on day one and like before if you ask me this question for you weeks goddess at night. I've been convinced it without et. But the more we hear about trey smith and the more we hear about create humphry. We probably accepted. The might remers is going to be the guy on the roy on a right tackle. There's every johnson. We're gonna have to two rookies starting on the offensive line. Which for any reason heard of. But i'm genuinely excited for project on the offensive line is going to be so much fun now. It's funny you say that tom could. I actually had a very similar thought. Just actually like at. Yeah today i wanna say i was just thinking like man i i. I've kinda just had lt pendon. I hadn't really even considered it for a while but you know why not or garden. You know it's a guard. I i think the tackle position will be a little harder for them to say all right. We can put a rookie out there. Because i think tackles will just a little more important. You're on an island a little more guard. You can kind of protect them a little bit. They don't have to be. You know maybe experience they can just use their you know their their weight their power and and just you know bulldoze a defensive tackle and not have to worry about you know maybe a a premier edge rusher on the edge on an island like i said so. Yeah i'm with you. I think if he really does show off athletically and there's just a guy that's just physically dominant elite is not you know. He's not going to be a physically dominant dude. I'm yeah i'm with you tom. I had that same thought. You know we might just see trey smith week. One good lead into our twitter question from dom at dumps ethan on twitter asking about who's getting reps and final predictions at offensive line so we just came to a consensus. I guess that trey smith as a good chance at right guard. I still think they're going to start off with l. d. t. and then trey smith will have to win it from him. Even though everybody. I think in the building hopes that that happens but what other predictions do you have for offensive line linebacker or wide receiver on. Who's going to get reps that we are anticipated. I think clear the wide receivers guy hail hartman deer up. I icon see them bringing elevate anyone up to that w off real to spa as much as i want like a kornel powell or a callaway. Come on. Come in and just take evolves snaps. Because i'm not the europe guy. Remember talk i'm just i'm just not there. I think he does a job. I just think the amount we rely on him is too much for a player of his if his ability say a non border that i can't say any surprises day. Because he's the andy reid offense because its renowned for being typically hard for wide receivers to pick up from days. I think he's gonna tried and trusted. And he's gonna go tara kill hardiman and then then they and then you he's probably gonna look to bring blake bell and snaps in travis county Heavier it's high ends as opposed to bring in the full from guys on on offense. And i think i'm more interested in the The linebackers Because i am. I'm quite on this nick. Bolton kid I keep talking about every single episode that we have Tom's police it can be talking about Nick bolton i think he's got a good opportunity to to to try and force his way in. I mean it won't probably won't be obviously as you know as the mike linebacker that hitchens's but I think he's got a good chance may be sitting on the weak side may be for a bit..

"How to answer this. So please enlighten me my mazda. I was thinking about the difference. S a and i think for neither team. What's the french is the source of funds so for independent vc's As interim believes brady from rich people and funds were. They have what they call them. Partners out you go for a corporate dc because most of the time the source of funds s the corporation so for example we see and so you come from or a now is the act of which you just open you know. He's into that fund our you know gore and other business units so that's the first source of funds The second i think is how investment decisions are the or the composition of the investment committee. I guess we call it. Independently cease to complete the dissertation Free investments are the partners of fines. What you would call the geez or general arthur's So you'll wanna bus. No find themselves are the ones who say yeah exactly Whereas for corporate these we have an investment committee that can be need up old brit representatives like people from different business units or on the case of kickstart on. Yeah i think we're be like me have a mix of People from globe but also independent Disease and advisers who share guy know their experience their perspective which is a site the global perspective which also inboard then but knicks that with a side points of view that discussion third is measured. I think so foreigner an independent. Vc success is measure britain much by financial desserts hours. It's it's you know how much money to hide. Access did give you back exactly the power though there whereas for corporate of uc's again it can be a mix economic financial thirds but also The strategic value that he corporate able to drive for the mother the mother ship or the mother come charted. Okay in terms of the closing clients if i can just jump into the united sink for independent. Dc in general. I feel The decision making density faster because like if a partner meets you can think about it. They can for their other partners and come up with its cheap. You know in restart about the time. I guess for He's obviously very sometimes of your decision. I guess the other thing is he sees as mentioned earlier. Kind of clear clear agenda have clear metrics for success. It's just all about like kudu. I get the most companies could and also i think the They also are viewed as being able to to value a company objectives mccarthy. Looking what should i not you this company today so i can still make money tomorrow. Where's dc's I am strengthening on either objectives of value ethers companies. Because maybe they're also evaluating not just how much your company's worth. But how is your company is worth if i integrate that in might mrs operations and stuffing it's out but the flip side the womb. Y you wanna work with corporate piece. I would argue in a region where you have a lot of prominent Influential business houses sharper. There is the you'll get access to wu. Corporate decision makers forum said that can help Scaled up your business faster if you know how. The decisions are being made of You know you have partners who can help facility discussions in and chrissy so you don't get somewhere there so i was gonna say that These kinds of value. And you think your job is the seals accompanying your or just a resisting. Money for company is putting together their sake. Mix the of injuries. Mo of investors. Who can add. You know i need. But the strategic advice bundy's in order but also commercial bills every investor completed point that it's about learning how to manage that constellation in snow absolutely and the guy always remember. This is not zero sum. When you say that okay. There's a corporate vc in in for there's an independent music. Who should i choose. You can do both okay and kim. They fit the around that you're trying to raise. Because if you have both they both you think less money from each of us the you meet the requirement that you need for that round.
