"Michael gove, who's the smartest member of the British Parliament, is out there pitching her. And he went on one of the Brit stations yesterday on LBC with Andrew marr and made this pitch about kimmi bad not cut number one. Michael goat. To be fair, she has Mormons through the experience and Tony Blair or David Cameron has when they became prime minister. And she's been in a runner party of course. Jeez. Oh, absolutely. And also, she's the same age as Rishi and she's been in government in three very different roles. All of which she's accomplished successfully. I know all of the candidates. I've either worked with them because they've been junior ministers and departments that I've been running all these supported me in previous leadership elections. Our new hesitation saying that of all of the people who worked with me in a department that I ran, cami was undoubtedly the outstanding minister. She has an intellectual grasp second to none. She has a capacity to communicate with confidence, but also with empathy. And also, she's brave. It's a rare junior minister who tells their Secretary of State where to get off because their secretary state is getting something wrong. Can we do that to me repeatedly? There were a number of occasions where I told her that I disagreed. She took it in very good part. But it's that confidence based on an understanding from first principles of what you want to achieve that you need in a

"Booth And I'm filling in for my good friend, Dan bongino. It's an honor to be with you guys today. And look, if you've got a pen and paper, I want you to take down this number if you get it, your phone out, take down this number, when you're taking your calls later today, 844-484-3872 again, it's 844-484-3872. And so what we've been talking about today is just looking back on fourth and 4th of July and looking back at the foundations of our nation. We've got to get to the back to the basics as a country, right? Like if your foundation is rotten, if your core is rotten, the rest of its run. So we got to get back to the basics of the country. We've got to fix our foundation. And I was talking about before the break, the stamp act. I did this podcast interview with historian doctor Brian mcclanahan on the foundations of her nation, the American Revolution. I think part of our obligation too as a country is to look back on history to understand it. Because if you don't understand what makes our nation unique what makes us special, then why fight for it, right? So we've got that duty, so I did this interview and it was really meaningful to me and one of the discussions we had was on the stamp act and the importance that that played in a really starke or starting a revolution. And what happened with this is what it really indicated was just the heavy hand of the British government coming in because really for over a 150 years you had the colonies were used to self governance, which is so important as Americans. And it was this first internal tax that was levy directly on the colonies by the British Parliament. And so you look at this small tax, help spark a revolution. Over the role of government in their life, that was unacceptable to them. It was tyrannical. You look at what we accept now as a country. I mean, look at what happened in the wake of roe versus wade, the overturning of it. He had politicians like AOC and senator Elizabeth Warren, calling for the federal government to just open abortion clinics on federal lands. Listen to her. Open abortion

"A flag Drake coffin I know 13 One of those so she said Mitch 13 of them it was a clear reference to the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan last August and there were a few of those highly partisan moments throughout the speech There were and that one was particularly noteworthy especially when you consider as he was referring to his son Beau Biden as well as just a very very heart wrenching situation involving the veterans there So I'm sure that will get at least a moment of attention One of the more traditional if you will moments where you actually had both sides kind of going at each other although the U.S. Congress doesn't do it quite like the British Parliament but you did hear some booing early in the speech when the president was starting to talk about his economic plans and referred to former president Trump's tax cuts and that brought some booze and some hisses from the Republican side Most of the speech I thought was about what we expected after Ukraine It was basically a laundry list of things that the president would like to do However there was a lot of shortness on specifics related to how that's going to get done You'll notice we never heard the words build back better You heard a lot of the elements of that including trying to get a national plan for family leave raising the minimum wage lowering the price of prescription drugs The president trying to frame everything to show that people would actually be able to save money under these programs Republicans of course very skeptical of that He also said that his top priority is actually getting inflation under control Again however somewhat short on specifics there I'm sure Republicans will be chipping away at that because he really didn't go into any specific plans other than to say well we want to get away from supply chains overseas These are a lot of things that will take a lot of time I also thought it was interesting that he went back to some of the big things that happened last year The American rescue plan of course with COVID And as well as giving some more details related to the infrastructure plan giving some props to Republicans for helping to get that past noting that it's going to fix 65,000 miles of highway and 1500 bridges across the country So again trying to tout some of the things that he's done over the past year also citing the fact that more than 6 million jobs have been created and that economic growth is going higher However Republicans as you know have been really ripping into the president in connection with those rising prices in the supermarket and at the gas pump Capitol.
Windsor Police Arrest Protesters Who Remained at US-Canada Bridge
"So a good rule for governance is that the more decentralized the form of government, the less centralized it is, generally the more free the people are. Why? Well, because in order for the central kind of authority to be successful, is they must be right 100% of the time. Where if they're wrong, then you're wrong for everybody. This is what Louis Brandeis called the laboratories of democracy. Now there's been plenty of instances in the past where president suspended writs of habeas corpus, like Abraham Lincoln did. Now the justification was that we were at war against a power, a Civil War. Now, Canada, we got our Canadian history here, was actually founded by the British Parliament, so that totally proves my point. That it wasn't the states that came together and created a federal project, it was a foreign power that came and created the federal project. And so Canadians and their history and their culture, they don't really know how to deal with this sort of encroachment on their freedoms and liberties. Well, Windsor police on Sunday started arresting protesters, blocking the ambassador bridge. I'm reading from the post millennial. Up to 30 protesters had been arrested, most of whom were charged with criminal mischief. Police also seized 5 vehicles from protesters and 7 vehicles were towed Saturday. Police started detaining protesters after a judge ordered them to leave the ambassador bridge some protesters moved away on their own as police approached. Sunday morning. So the emergencies act is an act of parliament to authorize the taking of special temporary measures to ensure safety and security during national emergencies. So the British Parliament created Canada and then Canada has remained subservient. To the power ever since. So what's going on in Ottawa remains to be seen? But the push by Trudeau to get rid of these protesters crush them and early is very clear.
William Federer Shares the Story of Yale's 8th President Timothy Dwight
"Tell us if you would the story of Timothy Dwight. Right. So the setting is we have a revolution and then France has a revolution. And our revolution was preceded by a great awakening revival. France's revolution was preceded by Voltaire, who mocked Christianity and had a very skeptical viewpoint and undermined morals. And so as a result, the French Revolution became very bloody. And so Timothy Dwight was the president of Yale during this time, and he wrote comments on the difference between our revolution and the French Revolution. In my post on Timothy, why did I go through a little history? Yale, it was founded in 1701. There were ten congregational ministers who sort of felt like Harvard was getting to religious and stodgy. They actually used a term called old lights versus the new lights. And the old life were the religiously strict orthodox, the guys that had their positions and they looked down upon emotional preachers like George whitfield and so forth. The university was originally called the Connecticut collegiate school at killingworth milford, but then they moved to 1716 to New Haven, Connecticut. So the college group, as a result of reverend Jeremiah drummer and he defended the colonial charters against overreaching British Parliament. So the Chargers were given, then you'd have different kings that would want to take away the old charter and consolidated and he would defend them. He secured 700 books for the college's library and solicited donations from many individuals, including the English playwright, Richard Steele, the scientist, Sir Isaac Newton, and he also got contributions from a merchant named elihu

The deal comes after months of negotiations following the uk exit from the european union in january. Joining me now to talk more about it is wall street journal. Uk and brexit. Editor stephen fiddler. Hi steven thanks so much for being here more booger so stephen. This deal follows months of talks. It's a big agreement. Tell us more about the key terms of the deal which covers a really broad range of issues here covers everything from trade to security to terrorism sharing of information on crime databases. It includes traffic Regulations you know who can drive on. Who's roads it includes fishing and who can fish in waters and the british waters and and how much fish they can take out of it. I mean there's a vast agreement of more than a thousand pages. The main thing it does is avoid. The imposition of time on trade between the two sides for the first time since one thousand nine hundred seventy three came down really in the last days to fight about fishing which is just a tiny proportion of both economists about zero point. Three percent of of both economies in terms of gdp a hugely important places like the uk but also in france and the netherlands denmark and spain and in the end it came down to a sort of a haggle over but the species. That could be caught from the waters of the of the uk species by species over the next five and a half years so it got down into kind of incredibly detailed negotiation in the haggling over various things that are actually in the end. Very small points economically the question was how much does the u k agree to follow standards and regulations set out by the eu in order to ensure that the uk could get tariff-free access to the market a full hundred and forty million people and in the end. That was a compromise on that that you didn't the uk to become a major competitor on its doorstep with free access to the eu market. And be able to undercut it and things. I m environmental standards on on things like subsidies for companies on things like labor standards and labor rules so the uk basically you had to accept in general a lot of those standards as the price. It paid to get tariff-free access to the eu. But in general the uk is now sort of a much freer to settle agreements with other countries including wanted hopes. I think with the united states that's free trade agreements because in the u. It's basically locked into and it has been locked into the us trade arrangements for decades so now that a deal has been reached. What will be playing out over the next few weeks. Well it has to be ratified. That's the first thing so that the british parliament will has been recalled. I think for december thirtieth to ratify. The agreement will do that on on one day. European leaders also will have to approve it. That's a fairly foregone conclusion. I think that both sides get approval from both sides. It also technically needs the approval of the european parliament. So that's the eu legislature. That will happen some point in the new year so in january one the agreement will go into place provisionally and then it will be ratified presumably at a later date by the european parliament. This is a basis for the future relationship of the eu and the uk. They're right next door to each other hugely important to each other in lots of ways and it's wrong to think of this as being kind of static thing that's that's now setting concrete foil. You know the rest of time. It's the start of a relationship that will change. According to how each side sees their own best interests so it sounds like this isn't quite it for brexit. Although a lot of reporting has referred to this as sort of a capstone deal here what other loose ends need to be tied up. Well it is a capstone really in in the sense that it's as i said the main of the major framework for their relationship. There are things that need to be tied up. And these are sort of unilateral in a way so the eu has to make rulings on the ability of you've to shed data with the uk. It hasn't done yet. That's a unilateral designation. It will make and we're expecting that to come. There's also some eu declarations to come on allowing financial services firms for the uk to do certain operations inside the eu after january. The first so there's technical things will follow. It's not going to be in terms of financial services anywhere like the relationship. That was there before that allowed london. Essentially to become the capital of a you finance and do some huge percentage of old finance business in the eu. Certainly all wholesale finance business that has gone away. There's already been drift of capital adrift of personnel. From the city of london to other places in the eu and that drift is is likely to continue. That's u k and brexit editor. Stephen fiddler stephen. Thank you so much for joining me. Today you're welcome
So long, and were keeping all the fish: Brexit
"There should have been something of a resolution at last to the brexit drama. This morning ursula von der line the president of the european commission and boris johnson. Britain's prime minister and said yesterday as an extended deadline to work out the fine print on britain's divorce papers yesterday came and despite the exhaust soon after almost one year of negotiations. And despite the fact that deadlines have been missed over and over. We both think that it is responsible at this point. In time to go the extra mile mr johnson used similar language to ms vonda. Lions having repeatedly warned that no deal was a very likely outcome. Where there's life there's hope we're going to keep talking to see what we can do. The uk certainly would be a will key away from the talks. I think people would expect us to to go the extra mile. Neither side wants the regulatory and logistical chaos of a no deal scenario but neither side seems willing to make much in the way of concessions and now an immovable deadline looms december thirty first. We are very much convinced. The end of the year. When the transition period finishes john peet is brexit editor. So the risk of nato is still high but the mood between the sides is probably better after the extension of the deadline than it was last week and what are. The main areas of disagreement still the main areas of disagreement being the same almost all year. There is a quarrel about fisheries giving european votes access to british waters. And there's a quarrel about what's called a level playing field which the rules for competition to make sure britain does not undercut european companies insatiable environmental labor and state. Subsidy rules the eu. On britain to stick to most of the rules it follows now. Britain wants the right to diverge from these rules and some way of settling that bigger argument fisheries will be needed. If there's going to be a trade deal but as you say these have been the points of disagreement. Better part of the year i mean What room for compromise left. Well they all talking. As i understand it about possible dispute mechanisms for settling quarrels about measures that be taken by britain or indeed by the eu. After the first january that deemed to be anti competitive. And i think that's the focus where you might find some way of agreeing what the europeans want is a dispute mechanism that would allow them to retaliate. If they deem britain to be behaving in an uncompetitive way. Retaliate by imposing tariffs or withdrawing trade preferences. The british could do the same to the eu. And i think in that area there is still scope for agreement and all this is about rules and regulations but what the personalities involved here. How does that play into. what's happening. The european union negotiator is michelle bonnier. he's french and he obviously has relationship with french president. Boris johnson has been trying several times to go round michelle bonnier and negotiate with others but the europeans are very strict on saying. This is the job of the european commission. Michelle baez negotiator. His bosses are london. I on the president of the european commission. I think boris johnson gets on reasonably with all of these people but none of them quite trust him. And i think that's one of the reasons why they want to have a very clear sort of legal framework that includes dispute settlement mechanisms and the right to retaliate. Because they never quite trust. Boris johnson not to go off and do something that will damage them. And how much do you think that issue of trust has has helped things up so far in yet still i. Trust has been very important in this negotiation. And i think the behavior of boris johnson has not made it easy a. He refused to consider extending the deadline for the negotiations earlier in the year when the europeans wanted him to and he then suggested a couple of times that he was going to rewrite the withdrawal treaty. Which is the agreement reached last year under which britain formerly left the european union. Even though that's an international treaty that would be a breach of international law. And i think if you put those things together. There is every reason why the europeans feel. They shouldn't trust will rely on the british government. Under boris johnson. Not to babe in a way that they think might be bad for the european union its members so the us official negotiator is michel barnier but that the national leaders are playing something of a roll here to national league is obviously critical. I mean Michelle bonnier as the negotiator. Us on the line. As the president of the european commission are operating under a mandate as they call it which they've been given by national leaders for these trade talks the mandate is quite a tough one. The toughest person in this mandate of toughest of bits of the mandate have been insisted on by the french president last week. Emmanuel macron said. I've consistent. So now i don't want to have my cake and eat it but i do want the pieces cut. He could it. Because i'm not giving my peace away. Michelle demander busy discussion janardan pam. I'd meanwhile angela merkel the other key european leader the chancellor germany. she's regarded as a bit more of a soft cup than emmanuel macron. She's very keen that there should be a deal beneath them. Dusty dusty. alice gibney super communists. I say funds and she's also quite strict and she has recently said. I think we should do everything together. Result goes saying and the threat to both sides. All along has been the chance that this should end without a deal or are both sides ready for that. I think no deal would be highly disruptive for both the and the uk. The impact would be worse but britain because it is more. Reliant on trade across the channel and largest sheriff's exports go to the european union. If there is no deal that will be intensive customs checks and problems at ports and trading across between britain and the uk and then also be tariffs which are quite low. But they're high for certain sectors ten percent for cars forty percent for sheep metex bullets about the same for beef exports and that would certainly cost people and be very disruptive of a very big trade relationship. The europeans think it will be worse for britain but britain also thinks that it would be disruptive for the eu particularly for ireland. Most of his trade goes through the united kingdom and say both sides want to avoid new deal and so does that mean that. This may go right down to the wire that there may be negotiations. Happening on new year's eve at some point people will have to say look. If we can't strike an agreement we are just going to turn deal. I mean what. The negotiators come up with has to be approved by national parliaments by the british parliament by the european parliament. That's the surprises. That sometimes takes weeks or months. You can tell escape it. But i think if we get to the thirty first of december they haven't reached an agreement that it will mean. No deal really have settled before christmas. Have any chance of ratification for january-august john. Thank you very much for your time. Once more. thank you.

You know so upset about all of this it will make them very unhappy will make them disturbed and actually they just really didn't care of them so although the tune in our in our study one was a bit unhappy about it the rest of the rest either the majority. I'd say we're just not very interested. You know they would say things like well. You know it's just there's so many other more interesting things being in my life. This isn't many an issue for me. And then there was some a smaller group who actually felt very positively about it and would say things like well. I like it. You know this is something special about me you know. It's a good story to tell my friends and so on so you know there were all these an predictions about the bad things happen again. It turned out not to be the case. So i think that's the advantage of doing longitudinal research. So you know you can her the children up from very young before they know anything about their conception and also allows you to look at things like well. When did parents begin to talk to their children. How much difference does that make. So that's why going back to see the families every few years has been a very Illuminating approach i think in terms of addressing the concerns about surrogacy so the research has a has fed into legislation on surrogacy and You know you're in new york. And i know you involved in the change in legislation. That happens in new york state. And i think my research did contribute to that fed into debates on the actions but also in the uk similar things happening so in the united kingdom but actually we've had legislation on surrogacy since nineteen eighty five. The the idea that point was surrogacy. Surrogacy is not allowed to be commercial in the united kingdom so though sarah gates can claim expenses. They're not allowed to be paid such so. The idea was surrogacy would disappear because if surrogate could be paid. It was thought well we wouldn't want to do it. Not turned out not to be the case so at the moment the commission is working with the united kingdom government to route to again have another review lawn surrogacy and it seems very likely that surrogacy legislation will go before new legislation will go before the british parliament and twenty twenty two and the aim is to make more straightforward easier for people to have surrogacy..

Politician, Eleanor Rathbone
"Today we're talking about one of the first female members of the British Parliament who used her position to push for gender equal legislation. Please welcome Eleanor Rathbone Eleanor was born in London on May. Twelfth Eighteen, seventy two. From a young age, she grew up in the world of politics. Her Father William was a liberal member of parliament. And often entertained other politicians and intellectuals. In eighteen ninety, three at the age of twenty one. Eleanor. Left home to study at Somerville College Oxford. There, she studied classics and was allegedly nicknamed the philosopher by her peers. When Eleanor realized that her college refused to give degrees to female students, she took matters into her own hands. He joined a group of women called the steamboat ladies who sailed to Dublin. To get honorary degrees from Trinity College. After graduating eleanor worked alongside her father investigating the working conditions of Industrial Liverpool. After his death eleanor continued her work in the city she volunteered for the Liverpool central relief, society where she dedicated her time to helping families in poverty, improve and change their living conditions in the eighteen nineties. Eleanor became a supporter of the women's rights movement, which she saw as integral to widespread social reform. Eighteen ninety five, she was appointed secretary at the Liverpool Women's suffrage society as well as the women's Industrial Council. Eleanor didn't agree with radical tactics to promote women's suffrage and instead pushed a more moderate approach in nineteen. Oh six, the Liverpool City Council Open. It's elective positions. Two women in nineteen o nine eleanor ran and was elected as an independent candidate a position she held until nineteen, thirty five. In nineteen thirteen, she co founded the Liverpool Women Citizens Organization to promote the involvement of women in politics. When World War One broke out eleanor organized association to help wives and other dependents. She continued that work when soldiers returned home, she saw mothers were struggling to provide for families and advocated for the installment of a family wage system. This method would pay family allowances directly to mothers, helping them to support their children and simultaneously fighting against the notion that men had to be the breadwinners. In nineteen eighteen at the end of World War, one British women over the age of thirty. Got The right to vote that same year eleanor established the nineteen eighteen club the following year eleanor became president of the National Union of Women's suffrage societies. And renamed it the National Union of Societies for equal citizenship in Nineteen, twenty, two eleanor ran for British parliament. She lost that year but was elected in nineteen twenty nine as an independent member for the combined English universities. She was one of the first women to hold a position in parliament. There Eleanor continued her lifelong activism in her first speech. She criticized British colonial ISM, and it's anti-feminism. She specifically called out the inhumane practice of female genital mutilation in Kenya. As. The Great Depression loomed she campaigned for the People's rights to cheaper milk and better benefits for dependents of the unemployed. Eleanor was also one of the first politicians to warn of the danger of fascist uprisings across Europe. She spoke candidly about her disappointment in British neutrality concerning politics in Germany Spain Italy and Czechoslovakia. She joined a nonsectarian anti-nazi council to support human rights and set up a parliamentary committee that took up individual refugee cases throughout the war at one point eleanor allegedly tried to charter a ship to cross the blockade of Spain Rescue Republicans from the country. Later, in the early nineteen forties, eleanor devoted resources to get an Jewish people out of Poland. In nineteen forty-five eleanor finally saw her fight for family allowances put into law by the Labor Party with the Family Allowance Act. However it was initially passed on the stipulation the allowance be paid to fathers rather than the mother she fought for. Eleanor's rage was short-lived. The bill was contested by many women in parliament and was amended within the year to be paid to mothers. Eleanor died suddenly of a heart attack on January second nineteen forty-six. Forty years later, a blue plaque is dedicated to her by the Greater London Council at her former residents. It calls her the pioneer of family allowances.

Boris Johnson will delay decision on quitting Brexit trade talks
"The brexit transition period is due to expire on the thirty first of December at which point the UK will leave the single market without a deal unless an agreement with the EU is reached in the next few weeks British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he wanted the broad outlines of the deal to be in place by the time the European Council Summit begins, today. The McCaffrey is your news political editor. He joins me on the line from Brussels could money cheat today it's the deadline. So why aren't we walking away? In this process is brexit process. We're very very used to deadlines coming and going out we gene and two large degree. At today he's GonNa come and go again and what we're expecting is no deal at the end of today when. Leaders meet in Brussels who were also not expecting Britain at top walk away either in fact we're expecting. Probably weeks of negotiations. Why is that I? Think because progress has been made though it is interesting last night the Boris Johnson spoke to US London line the EU Commission, Presidents and chose Michelle the EU council president in a joint to call and he. Exposure of his disappointment that the had not being a substantial or not progress. But clearly think that there is still an opportunity to get a deal. Hence why these talks will continue. We have to remember at the end of all of this book Britain and the e You have repeatedly said, they do wolves future trade deal I. Think both of them are willing to give it another shot of you like a bit more time So what are the underlying issues that holding up this process? Will listen to you though kind of three key areas in all of this at first of all is the so-called level playing fields or state AIDS, which is essentially the e you wanting you to adhere to the same rules and regulations to a large degree that and they already do as a former member of the European Union and things like environmental protections, food standards, for example, so that Britain can't undercut those in a more competitive way and join to that is this issue of state AIDS. The idea that the state can subsidize heavily industries to keep them afloat if you like, and again the EU is king the Britain essentially really can do that because it could convey. Could gain a competitive edge. Undercut the E. U., two degree now Britain would point out and rightly so some would say that actually if there is any part of the two sides who are used to subsidizing their industries, it's more likely to be countries like France and Italy than it needs to be the UK or indeed Germany for example, who just failed out Lufthansa to the tune of ten billion euros I mean the UK hasn't yet bailed out any of Big Airlines then disease you have governance How to settle speech future future disputes in essence the EU, has conceded that it's no longer going to be the European Court of Justice and they're trying to work out to kind of independent tradition if you like. And then finally, there's this kind of issue of fishing which economically is not important either to the EU or the UK in the sense it doesn't really make much of any countries economies to large degree, but it is politically symbolic. Ephraim. Brexit. As it will is what Brexit was all of out retaining sheesh water and also some European countries. It's incredibly symbolic importance at French fishermen, for example, or at pretty significant force in France and Emmanuel macron is staring down election in the not too distant future. So that is an issue. That actually is always the most difficult of issues because as as a Britain wants to gain back control of its waters, the EU still wants to be allowed to fish in those waters and it suggesting that if it cannot will. Then Britain is not going to be able to sell its fish to the rest of Europe and that is by far the largest markets. So shortly, collapse the whole deal on fishing. Think not though there are genuine concerns that it could be at the key issue. In the trade talks over the next couple of weeks, not least of all, because as become this to the issue in from both sides that for Britain. It's very symbolic as I say what Brexit is, they are absolutely determined. That they can have you know European fishermen essentially in the seas for years and years to come. Katrina to the fish they just think that is fundamentally unacceptable. It is not in essence taking back control. For the EU are equally determined. That if Britain wants to gain access to it single market by selling fish and eighty I, think it's eighty percent of British Fisher exploited in sixty percents. In, total those to the rest of the EU then. You're. Not, GONNA be able to sell your fish and you can have all your efficient chips he wants, but they'll have to be British people are going to eat them and not the EU, and they would also point that actually half of the so-called Bush's boats that fish in fresh waters at the moment are actually forward. So in practical terms, would it make that much difference I think the compromise, the them at may well come, and with this idea of quotas every year that potentially will start where we all now and year after year decrease. On a negotiated faces a bit like Norway has dumb but for Emmanuel macron fishing is a key key factor in all of this. Simply because you know French, fishermen are a potent political force but for the countries like Germany. In essence fishing's not very important and they would be very, very disappointed when push on for the deal to collapse on that single issue. So I mean what happens next and is a no deal Nella a probability rather than A. So. When you talk to people here and is being a whole range of MVP's and official yesterday, they were putting it at a probability of sixty percents. Gene essentially, that will be no deal, which is point stalk in many ways given the fact that we are getting into the game and we really all because time is to Michelle Volley ticking in this process I think what will happen next though is that they will conclude. Leaders at tomorrow that enough progress has been made and the talk should continue. I expect the British will accept that and talks will continue for the next couple of weeks. up until. Either the end of this month or the start of next. But then a deal is going to have to be done or essentially both sides have to accept the will be no deal because ultimately if there is to be a deal, it is a massive. Weighty Hefty document that has to be translated into all the official languages of the EU. EU Paul, we'll have to vote on the British parliament, some national parliaments to and so that decision will have to be pretty soon at the start of the next month because ultimately, they'll only have up until the end of to send the. It's because Boris Johnson his always all. And that he will not extend beyond December thirty. First, we've heard of course that before I think this time that really is a hard deadline and so at the Mo- wind, you'd have to conclude or less things substantially change that you know no deal. Is a real. Possibility, but probability, how is the British parliament reacting to this brinkmanship? Well, there's this. Thing is when we kind of what? It's not weird actually, it's probably not surprising the tool. But, it's not really consuming European on British national politics. At the moment clearly, we're in the middle of a pandemic. Clearly everyone's focusing on not just the fact that there is a second surge affecting almost every corner of Europe and deed every corner of the British isles. And Other increasing restrictions, talks about lockdown. So not not anyone's really talking about Brexit I think. Boris. Johnson's going to take enough majority that no deal is not good to trouble him like it. It was last year when there was a possibility that the government collapse on the issue I don't think that's GonNa happen this time round for the genuine concerns in Britain about what this will mean. Already, the government is already having to spend millions and millions of pounds to get a border posts. Customs checks to employ people essentially to work on that border from the first of January and no matter what the trade will be there will be extra checks a respectable. What happens
A Conversation With Erin Vilardi, Founder And CEO Of Vote Run Lead
"Into the podcast thanks for having me. So I saw talk where you showing the ranking of presentation by women at the highest levels rate, and there was a ranking of countries by countries and the US came in rather slow. And I just have one quick clarifying question for that was that at the government level or all executive leadership that I think is the inter-parliamentary Union I you which keeps the records around parliaments. So that's the most. Equitable body across various governments and so that's actually what they're comparing. So our Congress to say like the British Parliament, the UK parliament I don't know what year you talk but where are we now in comparison to that year and how we rank with other countries? So. It changes frequently. As elections happened across the globe, but I can actually pull that up and tell you that it's not good. We are tied at seventy six according to the inter-parliamentary union with Afghanistan, and that is from March twenty nineteen. So it looks like and now we are eighty three. So actually we've gone down we have our ranking has lowered in the last couple of years, which often means because even though we had quite a wave of women, right the two thousand eighteen election is often called the wave of women. Especially when it comes to Congress, we didn't see that large of a dramatic increase in moved to about twenty eight percent and you know that was fantastic because it actually ushered in A. Wave of women of color it ushered in a wave of young women, but it wasn't that kind of exponential growth or getting us anywhere near you know parody or reflective, which would be the majority we should be closer to fifty one, hundred, fifty, two percent to be fully reflective of women's representation in this country. So and you see other countries making different kinds of progress ahead of us as we remain pretty stuck pro because I think one of the points he made in that talk that we were at twenty percent and we've been at twenty percent in in terms of representation for twenty years. Try. So that is statistically around the state legislatures and same thing twenty eighteen we saw state legislative wave happen very much mirrored what we saw at the congressional level. So predominantly, democratic women rising through the ranks for the state legislatures I think there we are also. So the Congress has something like twenty four percent and I think actually the state houses around twenty eight percent. And, a fantastic resource is actually something called the Center for American, women and politics tracks all of these numbers really closely as either people retire or things change. They're doing a really great job of keeping those numbers up to date but again, it's pretty stagnant, right? It's not enough to make significant change you end up having to have women who are taking really really deep risks. An order for policy change to occur rather than the change where you see a more equitable government or more equitable legislature and allowed you mentioned the center of American women and politics because I interviewed them at least once or twice and I remember Kelly Dittmar from there, you know saying something that really stuck with me was before the two thousand, eighteen midterms before the election happened and their historic number of women running for office and everyone was really excited about the fact we had so many women running for office right and then you pointed out the fact that like all of these women. Won't win right so we have you know this is a multilayered issue we have you know getting them to run for office, we having them winning their elections, and then you know there's something that you mentioned in your talk that really stuck with me. You said something about term limits right? We forget that the fact that these women once they actually when they actually have to stay in office and then you know sometimes they aren't reelected. So we have all these these multilayered issues that keep women out of office in keep these percentages low well, and you also have pretty weak party infrastructure. There's. A great article outright now, I will find it and share it with your audience about you know really questioning. Is there a real? Paul, within the Republican Party to actually elect women now I think some Republican. Women will tell you. Yes including some younger republican congressman who are doing things outside of the party leadership but there isn't the same kind of concerted effort that you see on the left. But let's also remember that the Democrats effort towards recruiting women is pretty new and they still do things that actually for example, they after the win of Alexandra Customer Cortez. Long term incumbent, the D. triple, which is the Democratic congressional campaign arm said any vendors, any people who do business any consultants such sort of Konami around political campaigns you can't do business with these insurgent candidates like an see in the future also be blacklisted from doing business with the triple endorse candidates, and that was basically a slap in the face to nontraditional candidates, which primarily are winning overwhelmingly women of Color. So there's While we do have one party sort of doing better than the other around recruiting and activating uplifting as part of the leadership pipeline. It's really a reckoning we have to have with ourselves as a country with all of our political parties to do

"The person to lead on this issue and comment on the people who have not. We are talking with Conrad Black in Canada. He is a member of the British Parliament. He was a member of the House of Lords. Author most recent updated book, a paperback version of president like No other Donald J. Trump in the restoring of America. You have owned prestigious Media outlets, newspapers in Canada and in Israel and in the United States. So you addressing the media moments ago and you said You expressed incredulity like we all feel here in the United States cannot possibly understand how Thinking people can in an unthinking way, end up supporting a candidate like Joe Biden, who Put the lid on his campaign at nine o'clock every day does not go anywhere to draw. Crowds can't draw crowds. President Trump has has engaged more people with covert 19 the past three days and Joe Biden has, and he was ostensibly healthy out one explanation for this. Conrad is the media is, of course not reporting anywhere near what you want. I know about about Joe Biden to the majority of their consumers and the people consuming mainstream media in America today simply are Uninformed. They simply do not know. Because mainstream media today is devoted totally To the destruction of President Trump. I'm afraid but except for the News corporation, a glass Fox News Wall Street Journal in the New York Post. That is true. What you said, is exactly true. And this, of course, ah! I think an unprecedented state of affairs and will be the subject of a lot of analysis by historians and media specialists in the future. I'm not my own. Impression has bean. The reason for this was that when Donald Trump around 20 announced 2050 and carried on from there. He made it clear that unlike other candidates in the past Hey, was running against the entire system in his ranking, install factions. Both parties was running really against the bushes as much as the Clinton and Obama and he's been true to that he's been turning that he's been true to that. But once once Elected. He I think made conciliatory moves to bring the Republican Party and congressional delegation especially was just sat on its hands for six months waiting to see if we can impeach her out. I mean, Paul Ryan, unusual speaker in the first For six months or so. Mitch McConnell wouldn't lift a finger to help him. But once they saw that he was for reals, I think he's made an effort to bring them in under the tent, not Ryan personally, but the most of a Republican congressman Sanderson, and they've responded to that. I think he's clearly at the head of that. Artie officially now never Trumpers, or, you know, cowering in the camp of the Democrats firing missiles backwards over their backs, like right, throwing the flowers. But, um ah, Surtees key part of what he attacked the whole system and specifically included this attack on the national political media. I think they, You know, I don't want to take liberties and mind greed, large, varied groups, But as a group, I think they felt that he was threatening them as he was threatening the whole political establishment. But he was going to say In effect, they had no hitting. The Emperor had no clothes. The Washington Press corps is accustomed to elevating promoting political leaders as it wishes. Andi Andi. He ran with a social media understands sort of Broadcast journalism and you're involved in the leader of and on DH. He countered their influence on guy for a long howl. I know I'm not an expert in social media, but he may still be kept me. He obviously has a direct line scores of millions of people. Through through Twitter and so on. And so he e think they feel that he is threatening their influence in the political life of the country, and I'm liking now. Add to that. Most of them tend to be left dish and snobbish on da Left. Snobs don't much care for Donald Trump, because, ah, he is not a man of the left, although he's certainly not a reactionary either, is a man of the people, not the left. But of course not the same thing and Andi hey, is informal and straight fucking and politically incorrect and that tends to instate stupid playing levels of snobbery. Andi. He is the victim of that. But he's also the beneficiary of it, because, as all polls indicate the media uniquely low people in the country and incidentally young greatest, but I will if I pay, I think, but that whole State of affairs is worrisome because we have to have a free press and the functioning democracy and we can't have anyone government. Certainly one else tampering with it. But we have a very inferior press not only in the United States, but it's a problem throughout the advanced Western On DA and when the public disdains the press. I believe that it's a potentially dangerous situation. We have to have a free press that is respected, but it only be respected and bitter inside respect. And as you said a minute ago. The media in this election campaign has been absolutely scandalous. They're full of mallet, and they are liars, and one hesitates to use such a planetary phrases. No, I cannot take issue with the president when he said that they are enemies of the people. To the extent they deliberately misinform the public. That's what our enemies Conrad Black is our guest. A brief obscene profit time out, and we will return right after Thiss.
Boris Johnson faces Brexit revolt in parliament.
"I'm Anthony Davis. The European Union on Monday ramped up pressure on UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson to step back from breaking the brexit divorce treaty. Delaying a key decision on London's euro clearing justice. He faces a rebellion in the British parliament. The European Union says Johnson's plan would wreck trade talks and propelled the United Kingdom toward a messy brexit while former British leaders have warned that breaking the law is a step too far that will tarnish the country's image. The House of Commons will vote on moving the internal market bill which the EU has demanded London scrap by the end of the month two, its next amendment stage after a debate that Johnson will introduce. As Johnson prepared to try to persuade lawmakers that he's planned to explicitly break international law was worth supporting a derivatives industry source said the European Commission had delayed a decision on euro clearing. Johnson who has a majority of eighty in the lower house of parliament faces a growing revolt. All of Britain's living former prime ministers have expressed concern about his plan as have many senior figures in his Conservative Party. The leader of the opposition Labor party kissed Obama who is self isolating due to the corona virus said, he would oppose a bill that broke international law. Johnson's plan to explicitly break INS National Law has plunged brexit back into crisis less than four months before Britain is finally due to
The Encryption Debate Rages On
"So etiquette you've talked about encryption before. Got Fascinated. Encryption in the nineties already, I've been most interested in societal aspects of cryptography lately since I've seen quite concerted attacks against the freedom of businesses and individuals on using encryption, you're doing a horrible job tooting your own horn. You're not mentioning the UK parliament or anything like that at all. I was. Invited by the British parliament actually, they had a giant comet A. When they were deliberating the investigatory powers bill, I can today's so they invited me to to give evidence on encryption and I was happy to. Explain how what they were. Planning to do was horrible. Davor. Nicely listening to are they paid no attention to why opinions? I was also participating in the European Union Commission Panel on. On dual-use aspects of encryption. And similarly to European Commission. noted. That the guy from Finland appeared on, they pay no attention to what I was telling. So I have good track record of. Being listened to, but look necessarily followed or that's all we can. Anyone of, US, can ask for. But. You sound like the right person to briefly summarize what the Christian debate is all about. Technology. And from the mathematics point of view, we have gotten to a point where good quality encryption. is now available and good enough quality would in this context me in that if I choose to protect. Some piece of information and communication with quality. cryptography means. It. Is Too costly for the adversary to try to break. That encryption in. reasonable. Amount of time. So everybody on this planet currently has access to technology and know-how on good quality encryption at this is unprecedented in our times, and of course, this medics. Punch off authorities unhappy because quite many of those intelligence gathering mechanisms and. The law enforcement investigatory methods have being built around the notion that the authorities would be given access to people's. Communication. Day. Regardless of how it was protected. In case, there is a legitimate need to obtain that access If there's a good quality could Covic protections, there's nobody but the actual personal interest that they all started these are now. Tracking, or trying to interrogate. So nobody else would be positioned to decrypt the material sold that makes of course, the authorities have begun happy, and that discussion has been going on for centuries. and. Only now, a small people to sit. And individuals are in a position to utilize encryption without having to ask for permission. Yeah. So like before when when regular citizens tried to encrypt their information so that it wasn't available for law enforcement lawyer I was just like all you sweet summer child and just cracked it anyway but they can't do that anymore implementation. They were either week because the computing power was not that abundant in the past. All they were artificially weak. So they were basically I. The back door, all day were deliberately written. To be faulty so that the authorities would be in a position to crack the conversation open.

We want to see every nation who understands freedom and democracy to understand this threat that the Chinese Communist Party is posing to them and to work both themselves and collectively. To restore what is rightfully ours. China's criticized the U. S and U K for engaging in what it calls a Cold War mentality. But this isn't just about geopolitics. With more than 140,000 Americans dead from covert 19 in the economy and recession.
