"Hey WMAL listeners and Stacey Washington in for Larry higher today and I don't know about you but I'm feeling pretty safe today marks a former Cory Booker presidency the happy about it I mean he never pulled really well and he hadn't gotten traction in the black community which is interesting I'm seeing as how he probably should have been the kind of successor to the Obama legacy but it it didn't work and I'm glad to see him finally put this thing to rest like just put it out of its misery dude just let it go so he's doing that and I'm happy for him and when I say happy form he can go back to being the senator who screams at people about you know homosexual intimacy that was his thing before he ran for the presidency so I assume he will pick that mantle back up with leave out but it's it's interesting that he couldn't seem to get traction on his presidential aspirations I want to share with you one more time the website that I got the information from for the scientific survey showing voters widely except misinformation spread by the media that's just facts dot com this piece is from January second it's by James D. R. Gresty and you can find it there it's a fantastic reporting and I also will let you know that we have great gas three today at four thirty we're gonna have Adam Kennedy is the Deputy Assistant to the president and depth deputy director of communications at the White House and then mark Krikorian executive director for the center for immigration studies both of them have a fantastic topics for us today actually Adam is going to talk to us about the sanctions that are being imposed on certain sectors of the Iranian economy and markets gonna talk up to us about the refugee and local control issue which you might be reeling from this is actually really a strong connector for people who are in Maryland in the listening audience because Maryland's governor Larry Hogan who's a Republican is planning on accepting refugees as is the governor of the state of Missouri governor Parsons he said he's going to accept them as well and there's considerable backlash for both these men for making this decision so we're gonna get some background information in detail after mark Krikorian on this and and I can't stress how important this as president trump lowered the number of refugees that will be allowed into the country in total but he did give every governor who has received refugees in the past the option of receiving more or declining which is different from what the Obama administration did so this is an example of what local control looks like when a president respects the fact that every voter may not feel the same and in a representative Republic which is what we live in you elected governor to do certain things and if that governor decides he's gonna go all road can ride off into the sunset and you know he hi Katie up I'm doing my own thing you can do your own thing at the ballot box when it's his turn to be reelected that is what president trump is giving us the opportunity to do so don't sleep on that that's one of the at the things that the president is supposed to say whatever is not specifically outline to the presidency the judiciary or the legislative branch is remanded to the states and then anywhere Manding it to the states that gives us more control over our every day lives so we have to look at the impact of these things the complete impacts not just what makes us feel good or what makes for good talking points at the next cocktail party I know we're not those people so I have to worry about that but it's worth pointing out that feeling good and living well are not actually connected in fact we know for a fact that some of the best things you can do for yourself like exercising not over eating things like that they don't actually feel good but the results are amazing so you have to do a couple the idea that I will this makes me feel good so it must be good public policy no not good public policy so it I'm not so we can have any refugees obviously we're going to have some but should your governor be accepting them what have the voter set what is the point to what the voters have sat so yeah so weary talks about Cory Booker dropping out I'm so I'm so surprised by him waiting this long but anyway and then we just discussed Abby huntsman so who do you think is going to replace her like if you have somebody says say who you think who would you like to see replace her who can you think of right off the bat that you think would be good there and you might be one of those people who you stop watching like I have you don't care who their place arrested you're never going to watch it again or there might be someone you can think of who would go into that space and make it actually interesting to watch again someone who would be so much of a firebrand that that it would be fascinating interesting must watch television the person that comes to mind for me as Candace islands I think if anybody was to take over that seat and do it with like fireworks it would be Candace Allen's and fortunately it she's probably too busy to do that she speaks internationally now she spoke before parliament and she's really taken off or maybe she wouldn't even be interested in doing that job but she's the one that comes to mind for me and I'm sure there are others who would be good so you tell me who do you think would make a fantastic replacement for Abby huntsman I'm calling the eight eight eight six three zero W. M. A. al eight eight eight six three zero nine six two five so let's move into a little bit of discussion about Devin known yes so you have this interesting I don't know she's you've got Devon unions reacting to David cress of all the people in the swamp is this the guy that you come up with and this is about the FISA court an FBI kind of investigations of revelations that have just recently come to light this is cut three the fact that of of all the people in in the swamp I mean granted the swamp isn't very big but you know there are several million people that live in this area this is the guy that you come up with the guy that was accusing me of of federal crimes the guy that was defending the dirty cops the F. B. I. I mean look that's why I said this last night in a tweet the court must be trying to abolish itself because there is a long term damage and this is just another misstep so long term damage to the image of the FISA court if a dossier that was campaign product so something that was created for campaign can be taken and adjusted and kind of dolled up work I see that and submitted to the FISA court to obtain a warrant to listen to an American citizen who just happens to be running for the presidency then it calls into question the legitimacy of the FISA court to Devin unions his reaction is it's appropriate and and.

Today is a book from Alan Nelson before the throne. His latest book is now included in this. So we've been adding to this and we'll probably continue adding to this and so there's a long list here so so that we got Twenty seven books currently being given away five. DVD's those DVD's actually more because one of them is a conference series that it has Several DVD's in there there's a bunch of CD's sixteen CDs and again there's a conference series in there so there's more the NAT and then three flash drives so this is all the stuff that we're giving away breath and again you can get to it by going to bitterly dot dot com slash C. P. C. contest. And if you do that you'll be able to to Get to this and be able to see everything that we're giving away. We want. Let you know that because you're saying but it doesn't start for nine days from today but on December number fifteenth you want to get in there gonNA be some things you can do to enter every single day and you get more entries for doing so and so each. There's different points that you get for different entries that and there's like over a hundred different ways to enter so there's plenty of options for you so so that's something we just WanNa give you there so I encourage you to check that out and in nine days and that way you can you you can see that so just trying to read the comments Someone's saying look on watching an apple TV okay But if you want to join us and ask any questions and challenges Recommend that you go to Politics Live Dot Com. That's where you get in. There's a link to join in and ask questions and so until we have some folks as usually folks don't come in right away which I recommend getting right away. That's when you can get your questions answered so what I'm GonNa do is I'm going to torture many of you. It and because some of you will find this to be torturous and others may not maybe some of you are going to be agreeing with critical race theory and Black Liberation Theology Someone's asking when the contest states start against the the dates of the contests are December fifteenth. But I guess what I didn't didn't say when does it end. It ends the end of February. So we're going to have all of You're GONNA have half a December but Christmas time you're going to be focused on family so so those of you who really want this are going to make sure you're sharing it over the holidays while the other people are going to wait until January to kick in. But you have all Walla January or February do this. It's a leap year folks that we're going to do it. On February thirtieth figured out. There is snow February thirtieth woods. So we'll draw. We will do the drawing on the twenty ninth of February so maybe some of you have heard of the idea of black liberation theology or critical race theory. Social Justice intersection out. These are all terms. You're hearing more and more and and these are terms. That are not going to go away in fact if you are watching the Democratic National Committee's debates you're hearing these things come up it is is kind of funny if you watch those debates. They just figured out that. Elizabeth Warren is white because the only black woman is out of the race now. And you're saying that the Democrats are they're basing attacking their own now. They're basically going after the Democrats in saying that they're not black enough because I think all of the black African Americans have now dropped out. Maybe the only one that may still be in this. African American is Unfortunately the senator senator of my state Yeah so we have A. I don't know of Cory Booker still in the race or not but So that may be the only one dono. But they're the argument that they're even going after they're saying that there's not enough African Americans who are running that somehow that is showing that the Democrat Party may be racist and this is a thinking. Maybe you you've heard around somewhere somehow. There has to be a enough African Americans or enough. You know if you listen to glad glad I forget what it stands for. But it's like gay lesbian I forget but it's like some action committee to promote homosexuality. And so what the you end up seeing is that they are saying there's not enough homosexuals in the In the marine industry and therefore for there. They should do something about that that somehow they're very got to correct that problem which I not the church exactly a problem but they. They were arguing. That there's only twenty percent representation of people who practice homosexuality inside of Hollywood movies. Now think about that. Twenty percent of the movies are played played by people that practice homosexuality or they're representing homosexuality in presenting it in the movie and yet when you look in America We had a recent census that came out and basically reveals that those who are in homosexual relationships are basically point. Seeing it was point zero three or point three. Forget but let's go with point three. That's higher point. Three percent of America so point three percent of America and yet they have twenty percent representation in Hollywood and they argue. That you'll hear this argument that somehow if you don't have enough females or African Americans or homosexuals or whichever the victimized group that they're arguing for if you don't have enough of them being represented somehow you are racist you're sexist or whatever and this is where critical thinking critical race theory comes in and where you start to see this You know you see this playing out and so we we. We end up seeing a lot of the what's called Black Liberation Theology. It comes from a man James Cone and what I WanNa do is give view some of what he writes so that you can see where this comes from and see a little bit about why. This isn't going to go away and there's no end to it. There's no endgame game so this is going to read the some quotes here today from James Cones Book. Black Theology Black Power Power And so what he's arguing for is he's arguing for a Basically for this black power that he says that we need to have and some of the things that you see. He's going to talk about things. Maybe you've heard people talk about white supremacy let's see And the the thing that you're you have to understand with this when you read his writings and you read what they had what they say. Their arguments are really stuck. I would argue in a century old arguments. They're arguing that African Americans or blacks black power that the reason for black power is because blacks are not treated as human. They are subhuman women in America and because of that that's going to be an issue there also not equally represented in their Voting which I I you know if you think about those two issues yes that was centuries ago an issue where blacks were treated as if they were not human beings almost almost no actually exactly. Shall we say like children in the womb. Today we're children in the womb are told they're not really human human their sub human by the way African Americans in at least in America are aborted at the largest number of any group so if if African Americans really were believing that then what we should see is we should see them being against abortion in killing off so many of their own so there's a whole bunch of quotes here that we could get into and I'm trying to not take the really long ones because that could take two to read so so some things you end up seeing here is here. Here's a quote quote that you have black power. What is black power mean? According to James cone quote black power means black freedom black lack self determination wherein black people no longer view them cells as without human dignity but but as men human beings with an ability to carve out their own destiny unquote no. Let's break that quote down in an exam and he's saying that black power is freedom lack freedom house. He defining black freedom as by self-determination. Well who's determining things in these blacks right now in fact son to think about if you look at this you have many African Americans that what they end up doing is they will will be conservative. And what do we hear when you have African Americans that are conservative. They're an uncle Tom. They're an Oreo black on the outside side. White on the inside because they're not voting the proper way will then. Is this really about self determination or is this about a political agenda because what you end up seeing here is that they're arguing for an end. Someone in the chat is is even saying and look at how they treat How they attack black American candidates own and that's a great example So Mats Madsen here saying that he texted me when I take a breath come in I said the the URL. He's gotTa check his texts right. Would you interesting. How do they treat candace Allen and anyone anyone wants to join just go to apologize? Politics Live Dot Com. The link is there When we get some folks in Andrews in here right now but we get he always lets me know what he's got questions but Oh here uh-huh Matt There we go and so if anyone wants to join an ask questions We can we can discuss those things so so let me let me. And we'LL SUV mess. Thinks about this quote met. Did you get to hear the quote that I read or now a little bit Has Thirty stations here okay. So so here's the thing you end up seeing with this Barack power when folks talk about this you have to ask the question of are they being treated or viewing themselves as not having human indignity. If if that's case where's that coming from. Where is it coming from that? African Americans are not not being treated the dignity. Now the the issue here that you see is this becomes a ever moving target because when you say that someone doesn't and view themselves as having a certain amount of dignity well they can just change once they get to one level of dignity. Change it and say I still don't feel like I have enough dignity because I need need something else. The argue that this is something that can realistically never be achieved. And why James Cone will say and if I can find the quote on quote him. But he's going to argue that it that they're never in in America. Will there be whites. Who will ever see African Americans or blacks.

DVD's those DVD's actually more because one of them is a conference series that it has Several DVD's in there there's a bunch of CD's sixteen CDs and again there's a conference series in there so there's more the NAT and then three flash drives so this is all the stuff that we're giving away breath and again you can get to it by going to bitterly dot dot com slash C. P. C. contest. And if you do that you'll be able to to Get to this and be able to see everything that we're giving away. We want. Let you know that because you're saying but it doesn't start for nine days from today but on December number fifteenth you want to get in there gonNA be some things you can do to enter every single day and you get more entries for doing so and so each. There's different points that you get for different entries that and there's like over a hundred different ways to enter so there's plenty of options for you so so that's something we just WanNa give you there so I encourage you to check that out and in nine days and that way you can you you can see that so just trying to read the comments Someone's saying look on watching an apple TV okay But if you want to join us and ask any questions and challenges Recommend that you go to Politics Live Dot Com. That's where you get in. There's a link to join in and ask questions and so until we have some folks as usually folks don't come in right away which I recommend getting right away. That's when you can get your questions answered so what I'm GonNa do is I'm going to torture many of you. It and because some of you will find this to be torturous and others may not maybe some of you are going to be agreeing with critical race theory and Black Liberation Theology Someone's asking when the contest states start against the the dates of the contests are December fifteenth. But I guess what I didn't didn't say when does it end. It ends the end of February. So we're going to have all of You're GONNA have half a December but Christmas time you're going to be focused on family so so those of you who really want this are going to make sure you're sharing it over the holidays while the other people are going to wait until January to kick in. But you have all Walla January or February do this. It's a leap year folks that we're going to do it. On February thirtieth figured out. There is snow February thirtieth woods. So we'll draw. We will do the drawing on the twenty ninth of February so maybe some of you have heard of the idea of black liberation theology or critical race theory. Social Justice intersection out. These are all terms. You're hearing more and more and and these are terms. That are not going to go away in fact if you are watching the Democratic National Committee's debates you're hearing these things come up it is is kind of funny if you watch those debates. They just figured out that. Elizabeth Warren is white because the only black woman is out of the race now. And you're saying that the Democrats are they're basing attacking their own now. They're basically going after the Democrats in saying that they're not black enough because I think all of the black African Americans have now dropped out. Maybe the only one that may still be in this. African American is Unfortunately the senator senator of my state Yeah so we have A. I don't know of Cory Booker still in the race or not but So that may be the only one dono. But they're the argument that they're even going after they're saying that there's not enough African Americans who are running that somehow that is showing that the Democrat Party may be racist and this is a thinking. Maybe you you've heard around somewhere somehow. There has to be a enough African Americans or enough. You know if you listen to glad glad I forget what it stands for. But it's like gay lesbian I forget but it's like some action committee to promote homosexuality. And so what the you end up seeing is that they are saying there's not enough homosexuals in the In the marine industry and therefore for there. They should do something about that that somehow they're very got to correct that problem which I not the church exactly a problem but they. They were arguing. That there's only twenty percent representation of people who practice homosexuality inside of Hollywood movies. Now think about that. Twenty percent of the movies are played played by people that practice homosexuality or they're representing homosexuality in presenting it in the movie and yet when you look in America We had a recent census that came out and basically reveals that those who are in homosexual relationships are basically point thing. It was point zero three or point three. Forget but let's go with point three. That's higher point. Three percent of America so point three percent of America and yet they have twenty percent representation in Hollywood and they argue. That you'll hear this argument that somehow if you don't have enough females or African Americans or homosexuals or whichever victimized group that they're arguing for if you don't have enough of them being represented somehow you are racist you're sexist or whatever and this is where critical thinking critical race theory comes in and where you start to see this You know you see this playing out and so we we. We end up seeing a lot of the what's called Black Liberation Theology. It comes from a man James Cone and what I WanNa do is give view some of what he writes so that you can see where this comes from and see a little bit about why. This isn't going to go away and there's no end to it. There's no endgame game so this is going to read the some quotes here today from James Cones Book. Black Theology Black Power Power And so what he's arguing for is he's arguing for a Basically for this black power that he says that we need to have and some of the things that you see. He's going to talk about things. Maybe you've heard people talk about white supremacy let's see And the the thing that you're you have to understand with this when you read his writings and you read what they had what they say. Their arguments are really stuck. I would argue in a century old arguments. They're arguing that African Americans or blacks black power that the reason for black power is because blacks are not treated as human. They are subhuman women in America and because of that that's going to be an issue there also not equally represented in their Voting which I I you know if you think about those two issues yes that was centuries ago an issue where blacks were treated as if they were not human beings almost almost no actually exactly. Shall we say like children in the womb. Today we're children in the womb are told they're not really human human their sub human by the way African Americans in at least in America are aborted at the largest number of any group so if if African Americans really were believing that then what we should see is we should see them being against abortion in killing off so many of their own so there's a whole bunch of quotes here that we could get into and I'm trying to not take the really long ones because that could take two to read so so some things you end up seeing here is here. Here's a quote quote that you have black power. What is black power mean? According to James cone quote black power means black freedom black lack self determination wherein black people no longer view them cells as without human dignity but but as men human beings with an ability to carve out their own destiny unquote no. Let's break that quote down in an exam and he's saying that black power is freedom lack freedom house. He defining black freedom as by self-determination. Well who's determining things in these blacks right now in fact son to think about if you look at this you have many African Americans that what they end up doing is they will will be conservative. And what do we hear when you have African Americans that are conservative. They're an uncle Tom. They're an Oreo black on the outside side white on the inside because they're not voting the proper way. Well then. Is this really about self determination or is this about a political agenda because what you end up seeing here is that they're arguing for an end. Someone in the chat is is even saying and look at how they treat How they attack black American candidates own and that's a great example So Mats Madsen here saying that he texted me when I take a breath come in well I said the the URL. He's gotTa check his texts right. Would you interesting. How do they treat candace Allen and anyone anyone wants to join just go to apologize? Politics Live Dot Com. The link is there When we get some folks in Andrews in here right now but we get he always lets me know what he's got questions but Oh here uh-huh Matt There we go and so if anyone wants to join an ask questions We can we can discuss those things so so let me let me. And we'LL SUV mess. Thinks about this quote met. Did you get to hear the quote that I read or now a little bit Has Thirty stations here okay. So so here's the thing you end up with this back power when folks talk about this you have to ask the question of are they being treated or viewing themselves as not having human indignity. If if that's case where's that coming from. Where is it coming from that? African Americans are not not being treated the dignity. Now the the issue here that you see is this becomes a ever moving target because when you say that someone doesn't and view themselves as having a certain amount of dignity well they can just change once they get to one level of dignity. Change it and say I still don't feel like I have enough dignity because I need need something else. The argue that this is something that can realistically never be achieved. And why James Cone will say and if I can find the quote on quote him. But he's going to argue that it that they're never in in America. Will there be whites. Who will ever see African Americans or blacks.

"Marvel studios. Black Panther showed Hollywood changing, it was always much more than just another superhero film. We don't know if it will be nominated at the Academy Awards voting for Oscar nominations opens this week. That was Vincent Dowd. Well, nowadays, it's getting harder to distinguish between the two formats that will be covered by the Golden Globes, TV and film as the best acting, directing and screenwriting talent seems to make no distinction between the big screen and the smaller screen when it comes to taking on work. Well to discuss some of the favorites for tonight's Golden Globes. And why you might be hearing a lot more about them as award season continues right up to next month's Oscars ceremony. We're joined in our London studio by the British entertainment writer, Emma, Bullimore, Emma. Welcome. So let's discuss I how film and TV are beginning to overlap. What's driving that? Well, it's interesting look at the nominees list. Hugh Grant, Julia Roberts, Amy Adams. These are film stars there will nominated for TV categories. It's really starting to change. Netflix started this. I think it's made TV cool again and actually at a time where it's very expensive to go to the cinema and your option seemed to be big blockbusters which. Are in front of a green screen or little nashvillehomes that no one is actually going to see is very tempting for these great actors to think if I do something on TV, a it's cool again be there's some cachet, and I actually get to get into some really interesting material. So we're seeing a real shift and as a critic, how do you respond to this change? I think it's really exciting, and it's also really exciting for awards ceremonies because it tends to be the films are films that were released. I mean, some of them haven't even been released here yet and some of them were only released a week ago or something so people don't feel as engage whereas the things up for TV awards bodyguard killing eve, very scandal off things we've been talking about for ages. Let's get to some of the recommendations that you have in that our panel might have let's start with TV. Let's talk about a BBC film last year about a disgraced politician in the nineteen seventies, Jeremy Thorpe, the film is called a very English scandal or the TV program. Let's hear a bit more of the trailer for that before you tell us more about it. Liberal. Norman. Youngest man to lead the party. More than a century. Sure. Very dramatic. This is such an exciting coming together of British talents. You got Russell t Davis is such a fantastic writer and Hugh Grant who versus audience is a fall in love with his Iran Qatar actually getting to show that he can properly act, and this is fantastic performance from him with Ben Wishaw who was so celebrated as well. And I really hope it does. Well, tonight, he Hugh Grant is really doing some of the best stuff of his career. Isn't it? I've got I have to admit I loved him in Paddington to. He was fantastic. He was so willing to take care of himself. It's it's really great. Because he you know, he is a good actor, but he got causing this or four-page card type role. And now, it's really nice to see him blossom. Okay. Well, let's bring our guests in here. We have to bring Candace Allen in particular. You're still a member of the directors guild America. You get the tapes for all the nominated films. What's what's really impressed? You this season? Well, the the diversity not just the diversity in in the films like the big films like black Black Panther and so forth. But the. The the the smaller diversities in you know, the favorite. I mean who would have thought I mean, it's just unbelievable. I don't think it's going to win the Golden Globes because it's a bit too edgy widows, Cold War. I mean, there is just it's it's an interesting time. It's an interesting time when MS talking about in terms of the net the net flicks influence on what's going on in the industry. It's just blasted it open now. And there is there is still a place for going to spend all of that money to go and see certain things on the big screen. I mean, I think Rama for example. It's a net flix film. But to see the beauty of it, you need to be on a big screen, but other things like spider verse you really need to be immersed in it. And so that is a. I think the big screen is like books. There's a point where they think that it's not there. It's you're not going to need them anymore. But they come back because people want that particular experience in getting back to the Golden Globes in terms of film. I suspect that a stars born is going to to it's it's the fourth incarnation of this story people like love it in Hollywood, Bradley Cooper, did a wonderful job. I I was really impressed particularly with a backstage stuff really visceral. But it's fairly conservative. I'm upset that widows didn't get any love whatsoever from people because it's so edgy the favorite. I don't think is going to win. They green book, which again is a very conservative take on on interracial relations that gets a lot of love, you know, the the Golden Globes it's a big party and it's important for. The impetus. But in terms of really critical of evaluation of of what cinema is that's not what you go to the Golden Globes. It's less stuff. Isn't it? It's more of an industry party, and you get Emily blunt nominated for Mary Poppins bohemian rhapsody is there. It's it's allows you if you're not into really criticizing films, and almost pretentious about it. You can have a good time at the Golden Globes people that you recognize will be there. It's film and telly says very accessible in a way that some of the other all ceremonies aren't just just briefly. I wonder are you seeing a net. Flicks. Productions are they getting the same number of awards has the industry has the awards industry really pivoted to to to hand out Oscars and things at the to the same at the same rate to those kinds of productions. Yeah, it took a while. And it was really the crown that saw that that shift. They really wanted. They were very popular. But they wanted that cash. They wanted that gold standard of proper awards Baptist Globes. And now they're starting to get it. But what is interesting is that bodyguard will be there as a Netflix original, even though we know as as a BBC show they into all these car production. So they're taking credit for certain shows. We would not classes Netflix show. So interesting times. Okay, Paul assist and briefly with you. What would what would be your quick pick film? What what's piqued your interest? The one that I would really like to see just at least get noticed is is vice I think, it's such a brilliant idea because Cheney was such a key figure sort of half in the shadows in the Bush presidency. It would really be good to see. See him portrayed up there in this slightly comedy way. Okay. Fantastic. Well, thank you to all of my guests. Emma, Bullimore Kansas Allen and Paul Melly were just coming up to the end of the hour on weekends on the BBC World Service..

"A look ahead to tonight's glamour and glitz at Hollywood's Golden Globe awards will this film be a favorite to walk off with the big prizes. Cleanest, mixture ordinary passage. What I can tell even if I cop say. Darren I did not she's been struck by tragedy. Everyone leaves me. Well, we'll discuss the favorite and some of the other leading contenders to be best film during the Hollywood awards season. And with us for the rest of the program until eight thirty GMT, our guests Candace Allen, she's an American born novelist journalist and filmmaker now based in London and Paul Mellon. He's a journalist and researcher at the Africa program at Chatham house here in London more from them in a moment, but first provisional results from last Sunday's presidential election and the Democratic Republic of Congo redo to be announced later today, but indications are that not going to happen on Saturday. The head of the country's election commission said fewer than half of the tally sheets for the vote had been received. And that the results of wouldn't be announced until sometime this coming week. We're still waiting for the commission to confirm that statement. But some foreign governments and the Roman Catholic church and the DRC have criticized those remarks. Wchs. Stephanie Walters is a central Africa analyst and head of the peace and security research program at the institute for security studies in Pretoria since BBC reporters are getting mixed messages about what's happening about today's scheduled announcement of the provisional results, what is this uncertainty doing to the credibility of the vote. Well, I think we are already in an extremely tense environment. We had a week where we had different declarations from political parties. Also from observer mission we've known for some days that it was unlikely that we would see the publication of provisional results today. And of course, it's also weren't you? Remember that the internet is shut down. So all of this is happening in a climate that is already quite tense, and where the independent electoral commission lacks credibility as a result of a of a relatively poorly run electoral campaign process in two years of delay. So of course, it's no surprise really that. We will be getting the results today, but it will make matters significantly more tense earlier this week. The Roman Catholic church made an extraordinary intervention by claiming it knew who the Victor of the election was what do you make of the church's claim? The Catholic church has the largest domestic observer mission in the DRC has about forty at about forty thousand observers on the ground during the elections. And this was significant because most international observer groups that you normally see in elections were kept out. We had a handful of African Union observers and a handful of Sidanko service. So the Catholic church really does a lot of credibility in terms of where it was located in its spread across the DRC is also, of course, a significant player in civil society has been a very important voice in the last few years when the elections have been continuously delayed. I think would be what the Catholic church is trying to say is essentially, we we are watching you very closely to the independent literal commission, and to the government, and we also have our our own truth about who won this election. Of course, there's been concerns that the government may not announce the actual real outcome of this election, and that there may be cheating, and I think. The Catholic church is trying to preempt that indeed the opposition leader was was far ahead in polls throughout the campaign. How will his supporters react if he doesn't win? Is there a serious thread violence? I think that there is a very serious threat. Violently seen violence and ongoing protests in the DRC for the last three years, even during the electoral campaign, peaceful assemblies of opposition groups, we've seen the security services respond violently shooting a supporters of the opposition. There about ten people who were killed ten civilians were killed during that period. So there has been a recurrent violence in the DRC around these elections. There's a lot of tension. There's a lot of expectations. There's a lot of hope that there will be real change in the DRC as a result of this election and all of this again in a climate where the independent electoral commission, really lacks credibility and doesn't have much trust from the population. So if we do see in announcement that the the incumbent successor that is Sherry has actually won this election. That's what the senior announces. I do anticipate that there will be protests and violence in the DRC, and what about others who were observing this election. Regional representatives could could they have said or done anything more to highlight concerns about the way the elections been conducted. I think that the African Union inside anchor the to national mechanisms that were on the ground could've done a lot more ahead of the election. In terms of of expressing concern about killing the key technical issues. Notably a six million voters who didn't have corresponding biometric data who were registered about introduction of new voting technology about the political climate which was very repressive about the exclusion of some key opposition members. These are all things that those organizations could have been clear about ahead of this vote. Their preliminary reports after the election have been similar in some ways to the Catholic church and others have said that there were irregularities in terms of the the opening times that there were delays that the voting machines sometimes we're caused complications. And ultimately, we're essentially, quite quite wishy washy and didn't really say much. So I think that they certainly could have been much stronger ahead of time, and we'll have to wait and see what happens. Now, we know that the union. Can union has met with head of the observer mission in the DRC anticipate that they will be watching closely. What happens in the coming days and their voice in what they say about this will be really decisive Stephanie Walters. Egypt appears to a failed in its attempts to block the broadcast of an interview by American television network CBS with the President Abdel Fattah SEC among other things. The sixty minutes program special features, the president talking about his covert military cooperation with Israel CBS says it has refused to pull the interview and will broadcast later today. A Dula alario is an associate professor of history at Georgetown University in Qatar. I asked him what the leaders said in his interview that led to his own government's concerns. There's a question here of the fact that he's planning to multiple audiences said, so one of the revelations, of course, was Egypt's very high level military cooperation with. Israel, which I think initially perhaps that that that CC believed that this was going to be something that would endear and his regime in particular to. Western leaders and policymakers and at the same time, this is something that could kind of jeopardize some of his popularity back home. And I think as a result perhaps they wanted to walk back some of those statements, then of course, there was the other question regarding the the plight of political prisoners in Egypt. I think the number of sixty thousand was quoted in the interview. And so there there was this question of, you know, whether they're even our political prisoners, of course, something that the regime completely denies, but which is so well documented by Human Rights Watch. And so many other organizations that are keeping tabs on the very widespread repression in Egypt ever since the coup of two thousand thirteen that brought CC to power in the first place. So I think these were at least two of the major revelations that have come across so far in this interview before it even aired. He also spoke about the crackdown that was launched after he led the military's overthrow of president Mohamed Morsi in two thousand thirteen. Yeah. So there there was this was the robot massacres it's become known in. This was following a six-week sit in by protesters who oppose the military coup. Of course, if you remember this was at the time when there was still the Egyptian uprising the revolution. That was being attempted to transition the country to democracy away from the thirty year dictatorship Hosni Mubarak. And of course, the military coup. Signalled an end to that process and signalled a return back to the kind of authoritarian dictatorship that Egyptians were trying to move away from and part of that crackdown involved a really violent massacre in which over a thousand options were killed at two different locations in Cairo. In the break-up of that city. And of course, as has marked this regime as being the bloodiest that Egypt's long history of authoritarianism at least in terms of a single day death toll. And of course, this is something that has been very meticulously documented and and recorded in a number of different reports. So we have one interview three big bombshells dropped in that interview. What explains it was was he simply unprepared does presidency. Have a history of saying surprising, things and interviews. Well, I think the real issue here is not so much cici's lack of media savvy as as much as it is really thinking in terms of the choice of venue because I think if we look back not that long ago just last spring, sixty minutes did a similar kind of sit down this time. It was with Hamad bin Salman, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, and if people go back and watch that interview it was actually quite celebratory. I think to a certain extent that's possible. That CeCe was expecting similar treatment in this interview, where they would simply a celebrate, you know, whatever he he believes his achievements to be. But beyond that, I think also he's never really shown any kind of acumen in terms of dealing with the media. He doesn't have a very strong presence. And for that reason has really kind of shied away from from being very particularly public with his presidency. That was up Dula. I'll our an he's an associate professor of history of Georgetown University in Qatar palmilla. I'm curious to hear your thoughts on this. Any did any of those revelations, raise your eyebrows? Well, I think the confirmation of the cooperation with Israel is probably the thing that particularly particularly for an Egyptian audience will attract most attention after anybody in Egypt, and particularly those people who politically interested will be well aware, whatever their point of view, this is an authoritarian regime, so even if the figure of the number of political prisoners that's alleged gets a bit more airing that wehrley won't be perhaps taking things forward. But the confirmation that Egypt is actively strongly cooperating with Israel, and it's not just doing the minimum service for two countries that have shared frontier and recognize each other. But it's actively cooperating with these rarely government that that will make make quite an impact, and may also have some sort of wider resonance in the Arab world in terms of perceptions of how one how one relates the Israelis. But of course, as with all. These things in today's media environment. You can't put the genie back in the bottle. Once he said it in the interview, then any attempt to get her grand pool will simply give massively more publicity to to a program that actually probably many people might not have noticed was going to be broadcast. Absolutely. I it is fascinating to hear how this came about the interview took place and apparently shortly after the authorities made the request to CBS interview be pulled. I frankly, it's no surprise that. The CBS has said, no, so far, they're they're really pushing ahead with the broadcast will they they wouldn't have had much choice, especially if when you think of Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi Crown prince if he was given a a rather gentle ride a few months ago, then given all the controversy over Saudi policy much more recently CBS may have felt well we we can't ever be accused of being too gentle ought to lacking. In questioning we have to be seen to be very rigorous. Absolutely. What you are listening to the BBC World Service. It's eighteen minutes past the hour..

They're not doing where we this friends not being good at school. Do you feel assists inferior, and he finds a way in the games? Upon getting connected. He feels himself like a hero. That's an few minutes time with for the rest of the program until eight thirty GMT. Our guests Candace Allen, she's an American born novelist journalist and filmmaker now based in London and Paul Melly. He's a journalist and researcher at the Africa program at Chatham house here in London, both he and candidates are here with me in the weekend program studio, Kansas I hear that you have another novel in the works. Yes. In the works for a very long time, tentatively entitled after this redemption, which follows the failed love affair between two black student radicals of my generation. And how the global into connections that they that they pass through and it's from nine hundred and forty four with their found that their parents to two thousand and one and goes from the United various towns in the United States to contrast, Angola across Paris Kazahkstan. Yes. Many places many places Provence she becomes a restorer of renaissance art. He has been chasing conflict diamonds and coal tans in the DRC's iron, the which is hence my my familiarity with that. So next month. I I mean this month I finish writing. Finally. And I thank the macdowell colony for pushing me for it. I did a month there. And yes, fingers crossed. We shall see. It's long. How many pages are you at this point? Five hundred and one. Wow. Think for Utah. Okay. Let's let's let's turn to you in something that you've that's been capturing your interest in recent weeks. Those are the happenings in insanity. I can you take us through the latest from there. Well, the very latest is that the courts have finally rejected the almost pulse almost final possible avenue of appeal for the former mayor of Dhaka who was previously seen as the likely challenger to the current president, Mikey Sal in the election, which is coming up in February. But he was convicted of mismanaging municipal finances and this rules him out of the election, and he's just got one very obscure final possible legal option to go. But with with the election just a few weeks ago the way that that looks unlikely an Olis' really matters because Senegal is a country with a really long history of quite serious, constitutional politics, democracy is meaningful. There hasn't been a coup. People in Senegal elected their first member of parliament to the French parliament in the colonial system before the first World War and. People in particularly in urban areas in Senegal, they're very politically focused on this isn't just a middle class thing is all Senegalese really particularly connected interested in what's going on in politics and win as as in politics in any country when it's personalized in this president mukisa who has previously been very much seen as a reformer a defender of. Democratic Republican values Republican in the French sense of the principles of the constitution and all of that. And yet he's accused of using the judicial system to shut out the man who would have been his biggest challenger. And yet technically the municipal finances were mismanaged and the math former mayor Khalifa who's not a relation despite the same surname. Did actually has effectively admitted that he done it. Yet, many Senegalese feel the system has become too vindictive in shutting him out of the race. And it's rather strange because Mikey cell would almost certainly a won the election quite comfortably his record on basic stuff economic governance, rural development is really quite strong. So it it's a Senegalese terms and also for west Africans generally looking at a country that they see as a model of democratic success. You can be in other countries in the region, and people will say, I will Senegal's like Paris. You know, there's a perception that it is. It is an example to the region as a whole and the Senegalese often feel that themselves. So it's a very loaded issue this contentious election, it shows how quickly things can change in in almost any country. It really cause Senegal was considered to be relatively politically stable. Well, it is still politically stable and the election probably will happen in a fairly normal way. And there is technically legally the excluded. Former Mercalli fossil did break the rules. But the question is did the could the president of intervened earlier, and for example, pardoned him last year after he was first convicted in time. So that he could run many people feel that this. It's it's it's more about the spirit of. Modern democracy, which is how the Senegalese see their system than the fine legal points. Technicolor is that mean that the the former mayor probably won't be taking part? Okay. Well, thank you for taking us through that Paul. It is thirty eight minutes past the hour at you're listening to weekend on the BBC World Service today, thousands of orthodox Christians celebrating Christmas Eve in Ukraine, we'll be doing. So as members of a brand new church. The orthodox church in that country had been under Moscow's authorities since sixteen eighty six but to splinter groups joined together last year to get recognition for a breakaway church. And yesterday, the head of the new church was an Istanbul accompanied by Ukraine's, president petro Porsche Anco to receive a charter legitimising the split. I've been discussing the new schism in the orthodox church with arena pep Cova a research fellow at Georgetown, university's Berkley center for religion, peace and world affairs. She told me it's about. A lot more than differing interpretations of the bible. It's a huge rift between the two most important churches enrolled, and it's unclear how that rift will be resolved within our lifetime. I think it's huge. It may actually be irreparable the political significance of it. Obviously is that unfortunately, it's happened in a country that happens to be the bone of contention between Russian not Russia and are all sorts of political actors on both sides of that defined who are using it for their own games. So they're making what is essentially a religious dispute into something that that it shouldn't be okay. Let's unpack that a little bit. So you mentioned that this has been a religious dispute. This is a dispute that's been brewing for quite some time. Is it the political element? That's really led this split to to happen now. Absolutely. Because their problem is that in Ukraine after the cops. Are you ended up with three independent orthodox churches operating in Ukraine? Two of them were not recognized for the rest of the world. And one of the groups was recognized bear also considering the I don't I don't know if I should use the word legitimate orthodox church in Ukraine, but in the eyes of the rest of the orthodox world. That's what it was. And for twenty five years, they sort of coexisted in Ukraine all three of them were allowed to operate all three of their own relationship with the government. The government was not playing favorites with an EMC some and as elections are looming in Ukraine. All of a sudden, it becomes very useful for president petition to say. Well, you know, how do I my own popularity which isn't all that high? And while we can do that by making it. So that we have our own Ukrainian national church and turn a unify them. All and it's the one that has the Moscow affiliation doesn't like it. If they don't get with the program. Well, we're going to do what we can to de-legitimize their existence and trying to shut them down altogether. Do you think that the rest of the orthodox church will recognize this this new group in Ukraine? I don't think. So there are fifteen independent orthodox churches as an intern maybe two or three of them. Well, I have a strong feeling that the vast majority will not and what will that mean? Then for for this new group, if it doesn't receive the recognition that it seeks it means that they won't have what's known as consideration. So they won't be able to serve together in the churches or their sacraments might be considered to be not quite legitimate. And so basically they're going to be rolling to second status. Liquor relative that you don't really want to talk about because they're not quite there. Can this be seen as overall as as as a loss for Moscow? How how do you think that Vladimir Putin will respond to this? If at all. Well, I think in terms of how it actually plays out in Russian politics are in Russian foreign policy. I think obviously Putin is going to come out and say some negative things about it because this is going to slap in the face. But I think if whatever he says or does is mainly for domestic Russian consumption. You know? I mean, it's not as a Russian tanks are going to roll over into Ukrainian territory to like try to reverse this religious situation. That's just not that's just not going to happen. And just one last one Huck how to members of the new church feel about this how how will churchgoers be affected on a on a daily basis? There's a tendency for premium snow to start kind of preferring kind of the national orthodox church. However, what's interesting is that the expectation was when this new church was founded, the vast majority of the cranium would flock to it..

"You're listening to weekend on the BBC World Service with me Celia Hatton. Coming up later this hour US born professor of linguistics now. Based in the UK tells us about the words which crossed the Atlantic from American culture to British usage and vice versa. Sometimes people don't like the new words because they don't like what they represent. So for example, black Friday for the shopping day after thanksgiving came to Britain, and nobody likes that. Because it doesn't suit the place. We'll be hearing more about that in a few minutes time. But I that's apply pleasure to introduce my two guests he'll be with me for the rest of the program. They're both here. Looking at me in our London studio. They're going to be giving us their personal take on the news and issues of the day. We have Candace Allen, she's an American novelist journalist and filmmaker now based in London and Paul Mellon. He's a journalist and researcher at the Africa program at the Royal Institute of international affairs here in London can let let's start with you. So you were originally from the United States, but you began a quite a long career in film and that brought you over to Europe. No actually of love brought me to Europe times. But for the first time when I lived in Berlin. In the eighties. A film brought me to Europe. But when I came in ninety four was something else, which would then went on walkabout. But that's another story. Yeah. No. I I. Entered the film industry fire, the director skill training program and was the first African American female directors guild, but worked as an assistant director that is, you know, the production and running sets and so forth. And I did that for twenty years and was around the time of my moving. I sold a script, and it was around that time that I came to the K in ninety four. So I'm a member of the directors guild and the writers guild, but although I vote for the direct scaled awards. I haven't worked a set in a very long time. It's still in my blood still like one of these. Chronic a persistent viruses. And that's okay. Well, we'll be speaking about the Golden Globes much later in the program. So I'll be interested to hear your your thoughts on that Paul. I I understand that your interest really lines with francophone Africa. How did that interest begin? Well, I've always been fascinated by Africa and by France, and I've got quite deep connections. Longstanding connection since I was a kid with France. And when I started working as a journalist the child, the first very first job, I had actually they business magazine. And they were looking for somebody who could occasionally do the audit Africa story because they had people doing far eastern people doing the Caribbean and South America and Europe pencil, and they sent me to Congo Brazzaville and Cameroon and that was like. Sudden complete introduction, and that was back in the eighties and ever since I've been fascinated with it and sometimes in jobs, I haven't had the chance to work on it so much, but over the last twenty years, it's mostly be most I've been doing from an interlude covering politics in the Arabian Gulf, which makes departure quite a departure, and sort of striking contrast because. In the Gulf there. They're economically, of course, vastly more affluent. And in some ways them in that sense, they think of themselves as much further ahead, but in political terms, west Africa is particularly is much more advanced in terms of developing democracy and governance institutions and so on so it's been really interesting to sort of come back and work on Africa over the last ten years or so, okay. Let's let's stay with affairs in Africa. For our next story. Let's let's focus on what's going on in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Provisional results for last Sunday's presidential election were due to be announced later today. But indications are that's not going to happen on Saturday. The head of the country's election commission, so fewer than half the tally sheets for the vote had been received. And the results wouldn't be announced until sometime this coming week. We're still waiting for the commission to confirm. That statement, but some foreign governments and the Roman Catholic church in the DRC have criticized those remarks, Stephanie Walters is a central Africa analyst and head of the peace and security research program at the institute for security studies in Pretoria, she joins us on the line now, Stephanie BBC reporters in the DRC have been getting very mixed messages about what's happening about today's schedule announcement of the provisional results, what is this uncertainty doing to the credibility of the vote. Well, I think we are already in an extremely tense environment. We had a week where we had different declaration from political parties. And also from observer mission we've known for some days that it was unlikely that we would see the publication of provisional results today. And of course, it's also important to remember that the internet is shutdown. So all of this is happening in a climate that is already quite tense, and where the independent electoral commission lacks credibility as a result of the relatively poorly run electoral campaign process in two years of delays. So of course, it's no surprise really that. We will be getting results today, but it will make matters significantly more attempts earlier this week, the Roman Catholic church made an extraordinary intervention by claiming it knew who the Victor of the election was what do you make of the church's claim? The the Catholic church has the largest domestic observer mission in DRC has about forty about forty thousand observers on the ground during the elections. And this was significant because most international observer groups that you normally see in elections were kept out. We have a handful of African Union observers and a handful of Sadak observer. So the Catholic church really does a lot of credibility in terms of where it was located in. It's spread across the sea is also, of course, a significant player in civil society has been a very important voice in the last two years when the elections have been continuously delayed. I think what the what the Catholic church is trying to say is essentially, we we are watching you very closely to the independent electoral commission and to the government. And we also have our our own truth about who won this election. Of course, there's been concerns that the government may not announce the actual real outcome of this election in there may be cheating. And I think the. The Catholic church is trying to preempt that indeed the opposition leader was with far ahead impulse throughout the campaign. How will his supporters reactive? He doesn't win. Is there a serious threat of violence? I think that there is a very serious threat of violence, we've seen violence and ongoing protests, the DRC for the last three years, even during the electoral campaign, peaceful assemblies of opposition groups, we've seen the security services respond violently shooting supporters of the opposition about ten people who were killed ten civilians were killed during that period. So there has been a recurrent violence in the DRC around these elections. There's a lot of tension. There's a lot of expectations. There's a lot of hope that there will be real change in the DRC as a result of election and all of this again in a climate where the independent electoral commission, really lacks credibility and doesn't have much trust from the population. So if we do see in announcement that the the incumbent accessible that is Amazon is Cherie has actually won this election. The announces I do anticipate that there will be protests and violence in the DRC, and what about others who were observing this election. Regional representatives. Could they have said or done anything more to highlight concerns about the way the elections been conducted? I think that the African Union and the international mechanisms that were on the ground could've done a lot more ahead of the election. In terms of expressing concern about the key technical issues. Notably a six million voters who didn't have corresponding biometric data who were registered about introduction of new voting technology about the political climate which was very repressive about the exclusion of some key opposition members. These are all things that those organizations could have been clear about ahead of this vote. Their preliminary reports after the election have been similar in some ways to the Catholic church and others said that there were irregularities in terms of the opening times that there were delays that the voting machines sometimes we're caused complications. And ultimately, we're essentially, quite quite wishy washy and didn't really say much. So I think that they certainly could have been much stronger ahead of battalion, and we'll have to wait and see what what happens. Now, we know that the the African Union. Union has met with the head of the observer mission in the DRC anticipate that they will be watching closely. What happens in the coming days, and they're bracing what they say about this will be really decisive? I want to bring my guests in to the conversation at this point. They might have some points or questions of their own only, Stephanie how far do you think the influence of the church really can exert pressure on either on Kabila in the government or generally on the people in the in the current regime and the current bureaucracy. The people are invested in the system at present to accept the possibility. At least that there might actually be changing. They might have to cope with it. Or do you think the Catholic church can't exert that sort of pressure? It's a good question. I we know that of course in the within the population. The Catholic church remains a very important voice. This is essentially the only voice many ways that still has a lot of credibility about forty percent of the colony's population is Catholic. But of course, people even who aren't Catholic dude do feel it's a credible. Now, how how much it can influence the response of the government? I think it is in fact, minimal it's pressure. It's it's a it's a way of saying that the population civil society won't take a outcome lying down. But I do not think it can convince the government to impact. Change its mind if it has chosen to present Ramazani, Sherri as the real winner. This is a this is an elite that has done everything it can to cling to power net has isolated itself. It hasn't listened to really anybody. There was a moment where there was regional pressure question. Of course, I'm betting helped to convince Kabila not to stand Bernie the legal third mandate. But I think that's as far as can be learned his leader willing to go. So ultimately, it's it's a very strong message that the Catholic church is put out there. But I don't think it will convince the government to change its mind about its strategy. Stephanie. Wondering if in on the odd chance that the opposition candidate is allowed to win what real change that will bring to the economic infrastructure infrastructure, the the situation and kiva with all these, you know, the smuggling and all the commercial interests through really don't want organization in the DRC and education is it possible that they could actually come up with a government that the did anything for the country in defiance, or even alongside of what goes on with taking all the minerals, etc. Out of the country. I think the one the first important thing about an opposition leader being allowed to win is that it means that there is there is partial democracy in the DRC. And that of course, is is a is a measure is something that people look at in terms of their own confidence thrown willingness to invest in the country of that size. So this this particular crisis, which is now really in its third year has has has paralysed economic development has distracted the government from from. It's real business of getting on with trying to to build an economy and Bill jobs. So so that is the first significant change I would say better greater investor confidence in the country. And it's it's it's institutions and hopefully a refocus on on economic development in the real priorities in the DRC..
