These days they looked so just hauntingly familiar right we. We thought That that northern ireland had gotten through the troubles. And i would argue that it that it has but i think this is a real return to serious violence and it's it's deep-seated problem. It's a different dynamic argue. This is not so much the protestant neighborhoods squaring off against catholic areas. This is Really this is really about loyalists Protestant loyalists who are loyal to the crown who feels slighted who feel that. Their culture is slipping away. Who feel That they're just in this in this decline. And they're reacting to it and they're reacting to it out of a fear of what brexit is going to mean for their you know for for their culture such. I think it's more of a culture war right now than it is anything else. And that's we're really seeing on the streets young protestant loyalists who are taking it. Very violently to the street with molotov cocktails confronting a northern ireland police and challenging the british government and what it what it would see what these these loyalist forces would see as really a failure to understand how protestants in northern ireland.

"Over the AstraZeneca covert vaccine has been resolved. Germany has announced its to restrict its use again. The German chancellor Angela Merkel, says it will only be given to those over the age of 60. The move follows a recommendation by Germany's vaccine commission, which has been investigating more than 30 cases in which people mostly younger women, developed blood clots in the brain after receiving the jab. Here's our Berlin correspondent Jenny Hill. These are people who 4 to 16 days after they received in AstraZeneca job developed a very rare form of blood clot on the brain. They've bean five such cases in the U. K Here in Germany. Nine people have died and the vast majority of those affected why the younger or middle aged women now we don't know whether that's significant. It may simply be that Younger women, a disproportionately represented in the priority groups have been given the AstraZeneca vaccine here. Angela Merkel announced the decision She didn't want, she said to sweep these very rare but very serious cases under the carpet. This number all Has cancer infant Does Alice. We know that vaccination is based on one principle on that is trust. We have to be able to trust the vaccines on. That's why we wait until each vaccine has passed the approval process. That's why we only use vaccines that have European approval. This'll also includes the ongoing testing of their effectiveness and safety on the permanent weighing of risks and benefits. Nevertheless, this does present the German chancellor. With a problem. Germany's vaccination rollout is extremely slow, just 11% of the population have received Ah first dose, and she herself acknowledged this will further erode public confidence in the AstraZeneca vaccine.

"China has been recent years trying to improve its global image.

The C GT N That's it's known, opened its European production center here to great fanfare about two years ago. Today off come, the British regulator announced it was pulling the network's license. Officials said. The reason was straightforward. The people in charge of CG Tien's editorial policy are ultimately beholden to China's Communist Party in British Broadcasting law forbids political bodies from controlling license holders. Thank goodness, Finally, this license has been taken away. Peter Humphrey, performer fraud investigator in Shanghai was glad to hear the news. He filed a complaint against CGT in last year. Not over Communist Party control of the network. But over Chinese state media is airing of what Humphrey says was a forced confession. It followed his arrest in 2000 and 13 on charges of illegally acquiring the personal data of Chinese nationals. Well, of course you go way up 10 personal information by illegal means. I regret what I did and apologize to the Chinese government. Humphrey insists he never actually confessed and that the interview was doctored. He also says his captors pressured him to make a statement by withholding medical treatment for his prostate cancer, considering the kind of brutal human rights violations that CD Tien has been involved with extracting and packaging forced confessions from prisoners held under torture in China, who've never been in front of a judge. I just think that we should have no organization like that on our soil in Humphries case, Afghan found CGT And had seriously breached fairness and privacy rules. It also found the network had failed to cover the Hong Kong democracy protests with quote due impartiality CG Tien was indignant with today's ruling. It blamed quote the manipulation of far right groups and had I China forces for the off calm decision, according to a statement on way ball, China's nearest equivalent Twitter. The loss of the license undermined two key Chinese government strategy. Steve saying is director of the so as China Institute at the School of Oriental and African Studies. University of London.

COVID-19 vaccine may reduce virus transmission.

"Covid nineteen vaccine shows a hint that it may reduce transmission of the virus in office strong protection for three months on just a single dose researchers said on wednesday in an encouraging turn in the campaign to suppress the outbreak. The preliminary findings from oxford university. A co developer of the vaccine could vindicate the british government's controversial strategy of delaying vaccine shot for up to twelve weeks so that more people can be quickly given a first dose up to now the recommended time between doses has been four weeks. The research could also bring scientists closer to an answer to one of the big questions about the vaccination drive. Will the vaccines actually curb. The spread of the corona virus. It's not clear. What implications if any the findings might have for the two other major vaccines being used in the west pfizer and madonna in the united states. Dr anthony found. She dismissed the idea of deliberately delaying. Second shots saying the. Us will go by the science and data from the clinical trials. The two doses of the fis into madonna vaccines are supposed to be given three and four weeks apart still. The research appears to be good news in the desperate efforts to arrest the spread of the virus and also suggests a way to ease vaccine shortages into more arms more quickly but it was unclear whether the vaccines could also suppress transmission of the virus. That is where the someone inoculated could still acquire the without getting sick and spread it to others as a result. Experts have been saying that even people who have been vaccinated should continue to wear masks and keep their distance from others.

EU Reverses Move To Restrict Export Of COVID-19 Vaccines To Northern Ireland

"A mistake. That's how British Cabinet Minister Michael Gold is No describing the use sudden decision. To impose vaccine export controls of the Northern Irish border. The European Union quickly reverse that step after was loudly condemned as a violation. The key clause in the E U's Brexit deal with Britain, in other words, that there would be no hard border on the island of Ireland, but this crisis isn't over yet. Northern Ireland's First minister, Arlene Foster, Vehemently criticized the U. What's absolutely incredible act of hostility towards those of us in Northern Ireland. It was nothing to do with making sure that Northern Ireland was in a peaceful state and all to do with the European Union's vaccine, embarrassment and mismanagement. The prime minister and I need to act very quickly to do with the real trade flows that are being disrupted between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Arlene Foster with you more, but that vaccine makes management shortly. But Mrs Foster also called on the British government to abandon and replace the existing post Brexit protocol for Northern Ireland. Agreed with you up until now. We've been trying to deal with these issues on individual bases, but the protocol is unworkable. Let's be very clear about that, and we need to see it replaced. Because otherwise there is going to be real difficulties here in Northern Army, Alan Foster again with us get more details on this. Richard Morgan is the BBC's business report. Hurry Northen Ireland, he explained the background to this reaction. This Roy is really as a result of the European Union looking to trigger what is known as article 16, which is ah clause within the Brexit agreement, the Northern Ireland's protocol. That essentially change is hard up protocol works and what was going to happen here is that if article 16 had been triggered, it was to control the supply of vaccinations. Throw it the EU and there were real concerns essentially that vaccines arriving in the Republic of Ireland. Could basically get into great Britain using Northern Ireland as a backdoor because Northern Ireland is still part of the EU single market for goods and there would be no checks, but one article 16 would have done Is created a hard border on the island of Ireland when it comes to vaccines. The whole point of preventing that hard border was to protect the good Friday agreement and to protect the peace process on this island. So, of course, it has escalated as you mentioned beyond vaccines. With Arlene Foster, now, basically calling for replacement of the Northern Ireland Protocol. Is there any chance that that would happen? Well, I think unionists it's worth saying or absolutely furious. They view this as Brussels about to hit the nuclear option. They already here the Northern Ireland Protocol because it has essentially placed a border die in the Irish Sea, requiring goods arriving in Northern Ireland. From Great Britain to undergo some checks and processes to prevent those checks happening on the island of Ireland, where the border currently is, and I think, essentially unionist, they're saying, Well, look, what process was willing to do At the first sign of any trouble of any problems on this was to do with vaccines. What could happen down the line? I has this set a precedent and could we see Article 16 being triggered for anything on any concerns that arise on what uncertainty will this create for businesses and for Northern Ireland's economy Because we'd already bean been seeing pictures of empty shells and Northern Ireland Linds supermarkets, So this comes at a time where there already were growing trade issues. Yeah, Things haven't been smoothed over the last couple of weeks. As you say Supermarket shelves have bean empty. There have been issues around getting certain goods across the Irish Sea Jew to those new checks. We have retailers, well known high Street stores, who have simply stopped selling goods to Northern Ireland on the online retailer Amazon. It's currently drawing up a list of products that it will no longer offer to customers in Northern Ireland's and this is really concerned business on politicians, particularly unionist politicians, who have been calling on Boris Johnson, the British prime minister, and the U. K government. Trigger article 16 themselves in order to ease the supply chain issues on. Many are saying that if solutions aren't find that tree, a disruption is only going to get worse as we get further into this

"An agreement has been reached to partially reopen the. Uk's border with continental europe. There'd been chaotic scenes.

Uk's border in a bid to stop the spread of a new variant of covid. Nineteen while i'm joined by lance price former director of communications at number ten downing street. Welcome back to the globalist lands. What's the latest on this situation. Well the border is now as she said partially open which means that lorry-drivers particularly but also citizens and even british citizens at the moment who are resident in frost term cross. If they have had a test on the case of lorry-drivers. That's the whole living as the lateral flow test Which can be done pretty quickly and you get results within twenty to thirty minutes although it is nothing like as accurate as the pcr tests and the the one that take up to seventy two hours to get fall more accurate And if you know drive basically that's the tests you have to have. Can you just describe what was going on there because it looked like complete an utter chaos. These drivers have no no sanitary arrangements. They were running out of handle limited access to food terrible weather. I mean this. This seems to be absolutely no forward-planning no coordination whatsoever and that is curious because it calls the government. The british government had been a daily for this sort of eventuality if and when brexit's customs without ideal and Under those circumstances entirely predictable will be cues of nor is on the on the military's and that literally eight days away so the government had been preparing or exactly this kind of eventuality. I think what happened under these circumstances is that It happens quickly and said the individual lorry-drivers some of them depending on the kind of qods. They gossip senators got older than others but that they were taken by surprise they hadn't had any warning and this okay found up with the brexit closely. Get to the end of the year without a deal. The agreed at means that it's impossible for people who will still be trying to cross that border on the thirty first of december. Come what may to prepare for the circumstances fundamentals. Now the home secretary pretty patel's been doing the media rounds trying to defend herself. Frankly putting off a poor performance. What she said. Yeah we've pushing patel comes from the school of applicable communications. Says you never apologize.

A Weekend Of Chaos In Britain

"Been a weekend of chaos. in britain. the prime minister. Boris johnson gave a press conference on saturday which kick started a chain of events that is now being felt worldwide launch price former communications director at number ten downing street joins me now and monaco own editorial director tyler overlay is on the line from our studio launch. If we could begin with you can you talk us through. What's happened since saturday afternoon. Well basically christmas in britain has not quite been canceled. But it's come pretty close to it and it's enfold a pretty massive change of direction if not u-turn by the british government only on wednesday of last week. The prime minister was saying it would be inhuman draws people to cancel that christmas plans And then on saturday. He was forced to do a news conference in which he said that that is exactly what he was asking them to do. So that now people in in this country because of this new variant of covid nineteen essentially will be asked to just see a small number of people depending on where they live in the country on one day only on christmas day and then of course. We learned yesterday overnight. that's because of this New variant which is understandable because in great concern around the world. People struggled to see whether or not they have already with a. If they haven't they can they can contain the to prevent it coming. In from the united kingdom of borders closed all over the place huge queues to lorries trying to get to the at channel pulse dover in in particular where the crossing is to france and The french assigned that they won't take any huge queues at the an railway stations that get out of london and also chaos at the airports with likes being canceled to just about every destination you can of and it's hard to keep track of all the buddhas being closed at the moment. Tyler could bring you in here. What is the european view. We'll good afternoon georgia. European is one of not just canceling flights and cancelling connections. But also what we're seeing now. are now new quarantines going up so you know brits and also we also focused on maybe on a territory close to your heart or close to your heart also south africa as well because south africa is very much in the news as well it it. It is really in line with the uk as another country. is seeing outright bans on all travelers arriving whether the company from cape town or Or johannesburg into germany into switzerland and elsewhere as well so you have mean proper borders closes. It looked to for that moment. Yesterday we saw the dutch saying that. Okay airlinks We're going to be suspended but now we're looking at you. No one is allowed to arrive. in many countries the uk. And as you said almost minute by minute there are new measures going by countries across the continent here I mean lance one of your former colleagues listed campbell says it looks like the whole country is being put in brexit four by the rest of the world when incompetence meets venality and covert and brexit combined to expose the worst possible government at the worst possible. Time which you agree has this been woefully mishandled. Mile does have a way with words doesn't he. And he's absolutely right to in pretty much. Everything within the he says. Of course you have to separate this from from brexit brexit the final brexit deadline. Which is the thirty first of january. Hasn't yet hit us but as honestly suggests it's a taste of what we thought who's going to come anyway and he's also right to say that it raises a big question over the competence of the government other new variant of covid. Nineteen isn't boris johnson. Falls it's not anybody's walton in the in the british government but their reluctance to recognize. What so many other people around the world were recognizing and what their own scientific medical devices with telling them. Which was that the original plan for a five day. Christmas virtual virtually a free for all in the uk was just madness to only for that only to dawn on them on saturday. In the light of the new virus i think does call call call into question their their competence the end of the year when actually frankly dot competence has been called into question many times. I mean you think that johnson used the fact of the new variant to excuse his u-turn and was that then the perfect excuse for european borders to to fall like dominoes and shut us off physically from the block. Is there a little bit of perhaps schadenfreude going on here. We'll do spend a lot of speculation today georgina. You look at a number of different european news. Outlets are we also heading for some type of emergency extension Which could potentially happen. Which would again this would be of. Course be you know the perfect measure You have this new strain. You have borders. Of course being closed eros suspended cetera There there's no better excuse to if they wanted to kick this into the grass. I mean no one wants this But certainly you have to think here we have incredibly busy government Who have to deal with logistics issues. they have to deal with A media and public storm around this. I think we could be could be heading for certainly if you're listening to a lot of the correspondence at have brussels today. Maybe an extension talking about those logistical issues. Lonzo i mean. There are serious concerns about supply chains. How will the border closures affect availability of because then indeed traffic. Kent is already gridlocked in terms of traffic coming into the uk. Of course the roots are still open. If people wish to use those rates as a question ma about whether eu holiest would want to send their vehicles into the uk If they didn't get out again especially in the run-up to christmas and the other thing to remember is that a quite a lot quite a high percentage of trade across the english channel is unaccompanied freight. So it goes in containers dr flirt. It's picked up on the other side so there's no physical as a human being crossing with it and that can continue so the supermarkets and the many people in industry. I'll say don't panic yet. But we may be days away from them saying actually. Now's the time to panic I mean tyler is britain and by extension boris johnson. The sick man of europe. Is this an unprecedented crisis. Could we compare it to. I don't know one thousand nine hundred nine well if you look at some of the headlines in the papers certainly in the german press. We've been seeing the word pariah state being used at. This is not something that you throw around lightly georgina and of course. Adrian has lancer as well. You're there've been so many missteps on the part of this government of boris johnson's government over the last year You know just you fits and starts Throats and certainly near the stop start notion of of how to deal with this and then there's just the pure calms issue that you had the health secretary matt hancock. You're really using the words out of control. No one wants to be quoted and heard to be using the world words out of control. But that's of course what is what is popping up in the media all over the place so this is very much a situation Which is a on number ten. Watch and i really. I mean unfortunate viewing You know when we have just a little over week to run to the end of the year absolutely. I mean the whole thing about boris. Johnson is his popularity. He's been trying to do everything. Save christmas to just remain popular. He's he's a brinkman he makes. He puts off decisions until the last possible moment. He's had to do this thing he didn't want to do. What does this mean for his future. Well it certainly calls into question. I think quite a lot of wiser heads in the conservative party. A wondering about the man that elected as their leader elected him as the leader essentially because he was offering a clean break with the party's and and with the country's past as a member of the european union but there were a lot of alarm bells were ringing even before he was elected leader of the conservative party so prime minister about whether he had the kind of character to do the job. Not as those questions are even more relevant today but one aspect of his character is an shown this time and time and time again is that he thinks he can get away with almost anything so things he said in the past that might have ruined other people's political raise. He shrugged them off with a joke or or a struggle. Whatever it whatever it may be decision sees a potential scandals in his private and professional life. He thinks he can trump the more often. Just get on with it. And i think that Which is a kind of you know. Fly by the seat of your pants. Premiership simply isn't up to the task that now faces and and we're we're finding that out and a lot of people paying the price for it absolutely tolerate wonder. If i could just end with you. I don't know how much of an astronomer who are but saturn jupiter comes closest. They've been in almost four hundred years today. The the two giants of the solar system will be just not point one degrees part in the night sky that makes them appear to be one bright star just about the moon the great conjunction as it's being called also coincides with the winter solstice. Now we all know what happened. Two thousand and twenty years ago when there was a bright star. Do you think this is a potent from the heavens. Are we to expect the second coming or the end of days. I think we were corresponding last night. Georgina did use the word biblical then. So i didn't know if that's sort of foxfire. D'you into into that orbit certainly feels like that with this. It is really a convergence on on so so so many levels. I mean if you if you break this down thinking about the the the the ongoing political story that we've had around brexit Really pretty much a year that we've now been dealing with at least global level with this pandemic And then all of these other we call them niggly. Bits that are also I think surrounding the uk at the moment As well so this will be on. This will be revisiting. The story of sure later today and we'll be talking about it across the week for sure. Absolutely and i think just to tear each other up if we could schedule a zoom call later where we both sing. Tutsi-run emma sheet.

"60 am the answer. Welcome back America. You you were talking to Dr Larry are in the Hillsdale dialogue, Isn't it Z coming towards the stretch here and the key part of this is how to be the opposition when you have lost and you haven't expected it and Churchill lost in 1945, and he didn't expect that you have a choice on how to govern in the opposition and Churchill was as doctor and said the leader of the opposition How did he carry on that opposition doctor on because I think it's important, especially for the Republicans to hear this. Well, one thing he did was You know, Churchill believed that the alternation of power was inevitable. He also believed it is very parallel of this situation. Does the opposition would up, wrote the British Constitution? And so that meant that he fought them fiercely. On the other hand, he recognized the constitutional forms that had put them in office. So there was a It was a handy thing. There is a huge thing of extremely important thing. Which was pie international relations and policy toward the threatening Soviet Union, which emerged is the strongest power after the second World War. What are we going to do about that? Well. The foreign minister in the Adlai government was a man named Ernest Bevin and Ernest Bevin was a very left wing shop steward and labor organizer. And Churchill had dealings with him because of labor disputes the government got involved in and he found out that this guy was very tough and that he was both anti Nazi and anti Communist. And once in Churchill himself brought him into into British government in the in the during the second World War and gave him a Cabinet position. And so he was, you know, on the left of the Labor party. And yet he was loyal to Britain and opposed to her enemies abroad. And so Churchill agreed with the foreign policy by and large of the Adlai administration. And that set Churchill up by the way to give the Great Iron Curtain speech in Fulton, Missouri and 1946. Where he made this sort of great international statement. That signal the beginning of the Cold War. And if he had had a British government back at home that was gonna chop him up about that. Uh, that would have deflated the thing and you know it's interesting thing if he won the election. He would not have been able to give that speech himself because you couldn't say the things in that speech is the policy of the British government because it would have to be worked out in advance with United States. As the Harry Truman Kg guy that he Woz He understood. The Churchill was the greatest man in the world. And so Churchill gets this note from the president of Westminster College. But they really come and talk and there's a P s. On the bottom. Uh, nice college in my home state. I will introduce you, Harry Truman. You see? Well, Clement, Atley and Winston Churchill worked that out together. Oh, my Truman. I always learned something. I didn't know that. Yeah, and see that Z And you know, Churchill is sending them cables to the to the socialist government. From from Washington and keeping them involved blow by blow. And then it was just a wonderful little dance well prepared because You know, Latest Storm Stalin attacked is they are times attacked it name to people who somehow fit in the group. Um and But and Truman said, Well, I didn't know What are you going to say? Well, you know, they wrote down together on the train on and from twice in Missouri and the and Churchill cable back home to the socialist government. Read the speech and he loves it right And then the British government said, Of course he's not speaking for the British government. And Churchill is very artful in the way he introduces that speech because he's standing there and it is academic Garbett. Westminster College and Fulton, Missouri. And his beginning of speeches as you know. After a long life, you know, occupy no official statement Station. There's nothing here, but what you see. Well, I have a photograph and what you see is Winston Churchill at the podium and immediately to his left the president of the United States that's elegant position. They're things that you conduce together and there are sign of health in the nation when that happens. And both sides should be looking for those things. Now our politics are You know, we're in sort of 18 fifties kind of politics right now. And you know there's two Americas and they're contending and one of the reasons this These questionable things in the election, and there seem to be a terrible lot of them. One of the reasons they spark so fast, so much is because There's two radically different directions to go. It. But I I want to close by by Lincoln. We are friends. We must not be enemies. I hope I have the quote. Correct. Why not? Oh, yeah. And you know, the mystic chords of memory will keep us united. Well, that's what I pray for, and You know some of the things that were proposed, which wouldn't happen if those two get the Senate. Is, you know that there's an interest in making one party on undefeatable at electoral politics, and that that's a change in the structure of the nation. And that can't be agreed. T. That's gotta be resisted..

Poor ship thing, and any of us that are going to in the future are going to experience that, that letdown of something's not going, right. We hit obstacles that are so hard to overcome and a lot of times it can take one or two or five or fifty efforts before something actually works out. And part of being a successful entrepreneur is just not giving up just going back, if it fails once do it a second time of fails five times due to six, if it fails twenty times due to twenty and so it sounds like you had that failure early on.

"Six forty. And welcome back to coast to coast George Noory with you this past weekend. I was at the big bear lake California at the alien snow fest two and one of the keynote speakers, of course, was Nick pope, Nick, author journalist and television personality ran the British government's you Afo project at the ministry of defence. He is recognized as one of the world's leading thirties on UFO's. And he has got some gang BUSTER information for tonight. Nick, welcome back. And it was great to see you in person this past weekend. Absolutely. They could a great conference getting there. And I think alien snow fast is going to be one to watch for the future. They want to carry on with that. Now. They sure do. And I gotta tell you people just admired your presentation. Thank you. You know, the credibility of what you bring to the field of Ufology Nick has just unprecedented. I mean, here's a guy. You who ran the British government's UFO project at the ministry of defence. I mean, it doesn't. Didn't get much higher than that. No. And I guess unlike some people making claims of having what on this program that program, you can find out the press office and probably get off of my resume off, and you can go to the British parliament website and see some of my work. And of course, as we've discussed before many times much of the documentation that relates to my old job is now in the final throes of being declassified and released by the British government, all sorts of documents that I worked on and indeed wrote at the national archives in the UK, we're gonna talk about some of that information. But of course, you have obtained a published Defense Intelligence Agency letter to congress about the Pentagon's UFO program. Tell me about this. Well, this is something a bombshell, though, I say to myself the the letter is actually dated January nine. Last year bought I literally only got hold of this on January sixteenth this year. So so just just over a week or so ago, and it is a latch from the Defense Intelligence Agency to congress, basically saying you're starfish have been asking us about this program. This is what we did under the chip contract. And the latch win to the late. John McCain, who of course, was chairman of the Armed Services Committee ranking member Jack Reed. So so this is is absolutely unassailable in terms of of its prominence and for the first time in black and white. We have a letter from the DIA who ran the program to congress basically saying what they were getting up to. And it's extraordinary. Can you tell us how you obtain this letter? Yes, no. It's a complex trail. And there are a number of other people who who deserve a shout out for this back in April of last year. April nine the daily congressional record was published and a Swedish research watch glass spotted a little throwaway line in. I know amongst forty three pages or whatever it was where it said, essentially the. Onto the daily business was the DIA had sent a letter to congress about this. And I found out that Roger glass SEL and the number of other. Researches Keith back to feel Paul dean, John green will Collins people like that. We're making freedom of information act request for this document if it's in the congressional record. Well, let's let's say congress was told we the people should be told to I went down the different route. I work as a journalist Nelson UK's national newspapers. So I approach the office of corporate communications at the DIA. And I tell you I was I was chewing froing with them for months trying to get hold of this. This latter was clearly a huge internal debate going on about the release stability of this. And I finally got it. I emailed it on January sixteenth. Subsequently found out that it went in parallel to some other people who had made freedom of information act quest. I took the decision just to immediately tweet, you talent was such huge public interest in this story, and I figured that others others would be onto this too. So I thought you know, what I'm just gonna put it out there. And we'll see what happens I checked with the DIA. This was okay. And and the only the only restriction that was put on me with this was given on an unattributable basis. In other words, I could say that I got it from from that press office. But I couldn't name the specific press officer who sent it to me. But it didn't matter it's into the public domain, and and I'm very pleased. Nick, how do you know that it's authentic? Well, I this is quite interesting because it's been a few conspiracy theories about this. I mean, I received it. In an Email from the DIA. I had I had emailed them at the official corporate communications address. I had been dealing with one specific press office. So there so I knew that it was genuine, but the the proof of the pudding so to speak with the empower Lal's as I mentioned, a number of other researchers and journalists had made freedom of information act, request and sure enough it turned out that they had received exactly the same letter. So it's not just me coming out with this Steve often good. I think federation of American scientists also acquired the latter and published it a day off to me. So so there are now whole bunch of different journalists fan researches who received this latter some Email some via snail mail, but from the DIA itself, so there is absolute. Zero doubt that this is authentic. I mean, this is one hundred percent the real deal. Now some time ago, my colleague, George Knapp talked about this as well. Now, are we talking about the same thing? We we are. I am in impart. He he's the thing George who. Obviously his investigative journalism played a huge part in this story and continues to play a huge part in it. It's still unfolding. Of course. Georgia quiet, by means, which I suspect, but because of protecting his sources, he's not prepared to go into what looked like a list of projects undertaken by the Pentagon's UFO program, and she published this. But of course, it it was partially redacted. I think parts of it were with classified and. Of course, quite understandably with him wanting to protect his sources and standard journalistic process. There was not this authentication anytime, you get something leaks. They're always going to be people questioning you. Well, of course, George was vindicated because when when I and others go this latter from from congress for enough the attachment was pretty much the same. There are top of interesting differences in some of the information that was redacted hold on for a second. Nick. We'll talk more about that. Next hour. We'll take phone calls as well. Nick pope with us as we talk about disclosure. Don't forget to watch our TV show beyond belief.

"And I think what creek was saying was actually the histories extremely fraught here and may made another blunder in that interview, which was to say, well, you know, I personally might not have been doing anything to get Mandel. Out of jail, but the British government was conveniently forgetting that at the time, the British government was one hundred percent behind the national party in South Africa and very busy. Koi Mandela terrorists officially, yes, but on officially known memos released of thatches meeting with PW. Bertrand nineteen Ninety-four said that off the record, at least she was saying, you should release Mandela, and you are going to have to start dismantling. This that that that I think is is true. But I think the public statements that the British government when making at the time and the breaking of embargoes both culturally and in terms of sport, and in terms of the economy doing an enormous amount of damage while these quiet negotiations might have been taking place. Okay. Well, let's move along some Walter. Indeed, quite a lot. When US President, Donald Trump met North Korean leader, Kim Jong Hoon in Singapore in June one of the concessions made by the great deal make in return for the magic beans. He bought back to Washington, was I suspension of the regular immense joint military drills between the United States and South Korea. These exercises have long prompted picturesque connections. From Pyongyang who perceived them not unreasonably as dress rehearsals for an invasion of the north. The US secretary of defense, James Mattis. One of the members of Trump's administration perhaps least likely to be imprisoned in future has now suggested that the drills might be back on Charles. What he's actually said is that there's no plans to suspend any further or future drills, which I guess is a way of say year, we're going ahead and doing this. Is there any reason why they shouldn't? I mean South Korea and the United States are perfectly entitled to undertake immense joint military drills if it pleases them. So to do on their perfectly entitled to do whatever they like in the zones. All you know, close to the border and in offshore waters and in the skies. But presumably then they have to be prepared for the consequences in the one of the consequences that we, we wind up where we were six months ago with President Trump and Kim Jong UN hurling insults at each other. And then basically the state like Hawaii when there's an accidental emergency alert feeling that it's. About to be bombed by North Korea by mistake. And so the United States is welcome to re-engage in military exercises, but it has to understand that the chip it trades is realization and a return to a higher state of military and missile alert from the north. Just to follow that up though. Is there an argument that deliberately or accidentally Trump has pulled North Korea far enough out of its pariah status that it can't go back into that easy isn't imaginable that North Korea would resume its previous program of just, you know, annoying missile launches because if if they if they launch one more missile over over the, you know, the islands of Japan, they making a pretty significant statement at this point out they, which is that we are basically irreconcilable irredeemable. Well, the other way of looking at that is to think that Kim Jong UN now seems absolutely legitimized on the international stage, he is a person who has met, but not not want to keep it that way. All the more reads, first of all, he's an incredibly unpredictable. Murderous dictator. There is, oh, there is a little bit of difficulty in plotting his trajectory, but he must now feel incredibly empowered. He's now a legitimate nuclear power on the global stage. Why not have another go? Why not take it up another notch? He probably doesn't feel that either the Japanese or the Americans are gonna shoot down any of his test missiles as long as they're not aimed at Guam. So why not either conduct another underground test? Why not shoot another test missile, you know, into waters that are, you know neutral in far enough away and see where this gets you. He's a big boy now at the big table fill. This does follow. This announcement does semi announcement by Mattis does follow the recent abrupt cancellation of secretary of state, Mike Pompeo's sheduled visit to Pyongyang?.
