Does TikTok Really Pose a Risk to US National Security?
"Hank Shaw. He's the senior manager on the security solutions team for the cybersecurity company lookout I asked him whether he thinks Tiktok is actually threat and how it compares to other Social Media Apps when it comes to your privacy, is it really that much different from what's being collected from other social media? In reality no these APPs we give them access to lot and we accept that right. There is this kind of level of access that we all except when it comes to our lives on on the Internet. The difference he says is tick talks parent company by dance, any access, the Chinese, Communist Party, which you'll hear them referred to as C. C. P. May get your data. The core of the concern is who owns it? It's it's the fact. That it's a Chinese own company in that the CDC has demonstrated certain data usage tactics that don't fly in the United States, and that's why the center this whole debate tic TAC itself at least says, the data is secure and doesn't go to China, but Hank isn't so sure by dances under contract with the CCP to promote propaganda in the Chinese equivalent APP, which is called Julian getting getting that pronunciation right? They do that in the Jinjiang Province where The government is to put likely controlling the weaker Muslim population. So when I look at it from a moral perspective, I just personally when want my data potentially accessible by people who are doing something like that and in comparison to a US based company someone like facebook or twitter obviously instagram's owned by facebook they at least have to answer to the US government. As we've seen, know can take a series financial hit they have the US government. In Regulatory standards to answer to, and they've they've got a federal by to answer to which in my opinion bite dance doesn't totally considering they have that agreement with C.. P.. That's why Hank feels the possible Microsoft takeover of Tiktok in the US would be a step in the right direction and would help set some new standards for the APP but I also spoke with Patrick Jackson. The chief. Technology. Officer at the privacy firm disconnect who's also worked. For the NSA test. APPS. For a living I look at the network communication I also reverse engineer, the binoculars areas to see what secrets they hold in them. He says not so fast I would say that anytime you let your data leave your device Goto even if it's a US company or a foreign company that data can wind up in the wrong hands and it's because data is sold, it could be shared or could be stolen he points. To, facebook scandal a few years back facebook a US company allow data to be used by Cambridge. ANALYTICA to possibly interfere with the US election that data was was misused by companies that were US based, and so it to think that just because this APP is owned by a US company that data will only stay in the US and users don't have to worry is is false because you know money talks and these companies will do deals that will. Bring in dollars in May mean exchanging data for those dollars and also data can be stolen if we're giving up all of this data about ourselves location things that we like you know how long we look at certain videos. If we're giving up all this data to a US company and that data is stolen, then we're still back at square one. In fact, he says facebook who owns instagram and is now rolling out the tiktok copycat. Reels may have. More information about us than any other company almost every single APP that I do testing on has an integration with facebook, and so if you think about how much data that facebook is getting not only from the APPS that you use directly owned by Facebook Messenger. What's APP instagram and then eventually reels they're also embedded in so many apps that they don't own including Tiktok and so it's it's you know for a lot of attention to be on TIKTOK. Justified. That's okay. It's it's people's right to be suspicious, but that same suspicion should carry over to even. US. Companies like facebook they know when you're opening your workout apps and they know how much time you spend in them, our phones go everywhere with us. Our phones probably knows better than our loved ones still patrick has found some abnormal things about Tiktok specifically even beyond. Who owns it the amount of data that they collect within the first I counted the first nine seconds I counted two hundred, ten network requests from my device back to tick tock servers. It's clear that they've architect did this in the way to suck up as much data as possible. So knowing what these experts no I had to ask, would they ever download Tiktok? Henshaw says not right now personally for the privacy concerns until it's all hashed out I just is just something that I don't want to be the potential of Patrick Jackson on the other hand has downloaded it, but he gave it very limited access are revoked all the permissions that it's asked of me in the APP is still usable I can't postings because I don't give it microphone and camera permission. But if you just WANNA browse what's popular, you can do that and he says that's a good rule of thumb for any APP give the least permissions prop possible. See that APPs still works without permission that they were asking you for, and if it does then great if it doesn't and let's say you need, it's a calendar APP and you needed to actually access your calendar thing just give it that single permission ultimately, both experts agree it's up to us to understand where our data might be going for. As much as we use mobile phones in for as much as as comfortable as we are with them, people generally don't really know what to do to keep themselves safe. So we have to get really savvy about being able spot that abnormal behavior and then decide for ourselves. What do we feel comfortable with as they know that this is that this is happening then they could make better decisions. But if you don't know that you know High Fructose Corn Syrup is in your children's you know Pancake Syrup. Then you'll continue to buy it, but once you realize then you might say you know what I'll pick this other natural one over here. That just has a sugar
Trump signs executive order that could ban TikTok and WeChat in 45 days
"President trump's threat to ban. TIKTOK is now a formal order. Trump signed two new executive orders to ban US companies from working with the Chinese parent companies for both the popular video sharing APP Tiktok, and the messaging APP we chat, the ban will go into effect. September. Twentieth is an American company does not by the APPS. First, the president cited national security concerns for the sweeping new restrictions, both APPS, are owned by Chinese companies and tensions between the US and China have continued to escalate. Trump argues the APPS. APPS give the Chinese Communist, party too much access to Americans data and the ability to run disinformation campaigns in the US. Still Tiktok has insisted that is not the case, and that data is not even stored in China to be clear cybersecurity experts have said, it's tough to know for sure one social media professor told USA Today if the Chinese government were to request Americans from Tiktok, the parent company by Dan would likely have no choice but to hand it over. So what would trump's ban really mean? There aren't many specifics out yet, but likely the APPS would no longer be available in apple or android APP stores as a start. Then end, the ban may never actually happen. Remember Microsoft is already confirmed. It's in talks to buy parts of TIKTOK and plans to decide before the orders deadline. Oh and also both executive orders are expected to be challenged in court since they're so unusual. In fact, the reports, it's still unclear if the president actually has the legal authority to enact the ban,
Trump administration wants to purge Chinese tech from US networks
"In a speech yesterday secretary of State Mike pompeo outlined a new five pronged quote unquote clean network effort designed to curb potential national security risks allegedly posed by technology from. This would specifically include banning untrusted Chinese apps from us, APP stores. Let me go through the five prongs line by line. I, a concept called clean carrier. The US government is working to ensure that untrusted Chinese telecoms can't provide or interfere with US communications second clean store quote we want to see untrusted Chinese apps removed from US APP stores, and quote Third Clean Apps Pumpido said he wants to keep Wa and other Chinese manufacturers from pre installing or Even, making available popular US apps. Fourth Clean Cloud, making sure Americans data is protected and can't be accessed by cloud systems from alibaba China Telecom tencent and Others v Clean Cable keeping undersea cables secure particularly from Wa Wa quoting CNBC with parent companies based in China APPS TIKTOK and we chat and others are significant threats to personal data of American citizens not dimensioned tools for Chinese Communist Party content censorship pompeo said during a press briefing, the nation's top diplomat. Added that the State Department would work with the Commerce Department as well as the Defense Department to limit the ability of Chinese cloud service providers to collect store and process data in the United States and quote.
Made in Hollywood, Censored by Beijing
"Back on its feet, many movie executives are wondering what some of the administration's tough talk regarding China will do to their relationship with China. Studios have been looking for a greater box office share in China, which right now sits at around 25% compared to about 50% as it is an other nations. What many people don't know, though, is some of the demands that the Chinese Communist Party puts on these movie makers to get a movie into China so it can be seen in that market. I had a chance to catch up with Chris meant, and he's an entertainment industry veteran and author of the book. Feeding the dragon he shares some of the hoops movies have to go through to be played in China, where I have the big problem is when they're giving us cross border censorship. Mandates, which involved a censoring content for the rest of the world to see because they want a particular narrative taken by that content and given to audiences around the world. In the Ted Cruz example, they've asked Paramount to remove the Taiwanese flag. I'm Tom Cruise's jacket in the new top gun movie, not just for their market. But for all markets around the world that I say has to end and we need the leverage of the country back Paramount back the filmmakers and say no to that and make sure that they're not retaliated against inside China and for Yusa Radio news.

Elaine Pearson on free speech at UNSW
"Battle of free speech on Australian University campuses. Allying piece was interviewed by the Media Department at the University of new. South. Wales about the human rights implications of Hong. Kong's new national security role as. Director at Human Rights Watch and an adjunct law lecturer at the university. She expressed concern about the laws and called on the United Nations Secretary General to appoint a special envoy in Hong Kong. Well, it's hardly a very controversial stuff in democracy lock Australia Russia. Will sell you think. We'll after the article, win online the pro. Chinese Communist Party students at the university they demanded the article be removed. You see caused a fence it was hurtful to the communist government in China. The university caved in and pulled the article. Only. After an outcry in the press was the article riposted. So. How did we get to the point when one of Australia's leading universities agrees to political censorship in favor of another nation state? Elaine. Joins me now aligned welcome to between the lines. Great to have you on the program. Thanks Tom. Now, the article is back on the University of New South Wales website but with caveats that the views expressed do not represent the views of the university you happy with this outcome. Well I'm glad that they put it back up. But I am pretty disappointed at the university's response I mean I think you know the views expressed in that article of us about the human rights situation in Hong Kong and I think that shouldn't be something that should be controversial and I was a bit surprised actually that the university was so quick to distance themselves from those views and I think you know I presumed that the ferocity of the campaign by the Pro Chinese Communist Party. Students really took them by surprise. But I think now the question really is how is Going to respond to this and I, think the students you know really are looking to see what is going to be the public response and what next is the university going to do to address these shoes mind you. This is not the only incident of academic freedom being compromised. Can you tell us about some of the other cases? Yeah, Human Rights Watch has actually been documenting Chinese document lit threats to academic freedom since two thousand fifteen not just in Australia about universities all around the world we've looked cases in the US the UK Canada France and right here, and what we've seen is that there is A universities are in a tight bind because the become quite dependent on foreign students. Many of those students coming from China those students have a very different world view, many of them and when they come here. Obviously you know coming here should come with a guarantee of academic freedom and what these should be quite basic things for an Australian university education. But in reality if those students try and for instance, join protests on campus about Hong Kong or Fin Jiang they are often then reported to the Chinese consulates So they are very afraid of doing anything like that they just. Try and keep the hits down and you know you only have to look at the controversy that's happened on Q. Withdrew Pavlou and how he has been treated to see that you know we you know it's not a very impressive response from the universities to to say, Scott Free speech and academic freedom only sorts of sensitive topics like shin-jang like Hong Kong, and like human rights in China. Now you mentioned drew heavily, he was expelled from the University of Queensland in part. For, organizing, what was it very noisy pro Hong Kong protests is that right? Well, he's been suspended. So I, think you know the industry who six months suspension six month suspension so He has been you know he's had been a pretty provocative campaigner. Some of these methods may have been a bit unorthodox, but at the end of the day, look at what happened to him on on that campus I. Mean there were fistfights erupting you cue between the different student groups you had in our pro CCP's students you know supporting the Communist Party trying to tear down. The messages from? Hong, Kong democracy supporters and the only person who's actually suffered any retaliation or reprisals is is drew himself, and so we wanna see universities really safeguard academic freedom and free speech and I think that means also acting against those who are intimidating or harassing all those on campus and making the campus a safe space to express all sorts of different views. Now in your case, a lot of the outrage amongst the Chinese students was expressed and organized I understand on Chinese soil media platforms way chat. which are now apparently watched by Beijing and to what extent you concerned about those platforms like we had and I think the other one is is a waiver we Yes that's right. Yeah I mean. These were the platforms where they organize. Look if students want to express different view an opposing you that's fine I think. I'm concerned is the extent to which this campaign became one of intimidating and harassing other students who expressed different views and as I understand it were threats made that they would report people to the Chinese consulate. For expressing excuse so I think the universities actually really need to monitor. Their social media channels and not just use them as a means of advertising for you know potential new students come to the university but also make sure that those channels are being you know being up being watched not to to censor free speech. But as I said, you know where that free speech is crossing the line. I also think they just need to be clear to the students. You know what what that means that it means. Going to a means being exposed to two different views and a free to discuss and debate those issues, but you're not free to shut down. The views of others. Of course, a line universities in Australia and this is cried sacred I've become increasingly dependent on. Overseas students for their budgets. Some have more diversified student bodies but others locked. University of new, South, Wales away opposite talking about University of New South Wales because of your special case this week they heavily concentrated on the Chinese market now since covert. US W has been one of the hardest hit by travel restrictions at recently made nearly I think five hundred staff redundant. Do you think this budget anxiety affected their handling of the issue align peace and? Yes I've been I think this reliance on the revenue from foreign students is something that you know all universities are facing now and so it it is putting them in a difficult position but I think that's why actually universities need to have a unified front. I think they really need to look at their existing. Codes of conduct they don't actually deal with these issues of foreign students might come from very different oil you, and so you know what I've suggested to you, and it's still view and to many other universities in Australia is to adopt a twelve point code of conduct specifically on these issues and they need to be alive to these issues. They need to incorporate it more into the orientation when you foreign students coming to campus so that they really understand what academic freedom means with our and they need to sort of monitor and. Safeguard, for you know acts of intimidation or harassment because I'm not so worried about myself but I'm more worried about other students on campus who will see how the situation has developed and then they might be too scared to speak out on. Hong Kong will fit in the classroom or other academics who might think twice about taking a meteorological on Hong Kong because they'll be worried about the potential backlash. So you know I think universities really need to take a stand on this and you know it needs to be done. You know jointly. By by all USTRALIAN universities.
Has China Won? With Prof. Kishore Mahbubani
"Professor Shore Mahbubani welcome to the Model Majority podcast today my pleasure rejoin you. All right. So to get a conversation started, you know the focus of our interview today is your New Book Has China one, and there are a lot of things over to dive deep into with you on this book. The first thing I wanNA chat about is this notion of the Chinese civilization party as you know, very well, the as an acronym is sort around quite. Casually, in the media in foreign policy circle to describe China as a whole right the Chinese Communist Party and you believe that this is actually quite an inadequate framing to understand China as a country as a people and you believe that by thinking of the CCP as the Chinese civilization party is perhaps a better way to think about it. Why do you think this kind of change in terminology is helpful in helping the United States in particular understand China. I think it would make a huge difference. If the American people came to realize the truth. which is the main mission of the Chinese Communist Party. Is Not export communism to the rest of the world. which was the mission of the Soviet Union's Communist Party. But to try and reform I've and strengthen China's civilization. I what I told you is is a basic of. But most Americans, do not know this basic truth. Because, when they hear the what Chinese Communist, party. The what communists in the American imagination. is by definition somebody WHO's evil and doing bad things. That good a good communist continent, an oxymoron. In America, in American linguistic discourse. So when you when you tell them that they're dealing with the Chinese Communist, party the by definition, they believe they dealing with an evil party that is out to undermine America out to oppose the American values out to diminish. America's standing in the world without realizing. That the core mission of the Chinese Communist, party is is to make China's strong and what's interesting. And to understand how deeply rooted this mission is remember remember the send the words that Chairman Mao us. When the People's Republic of China was established in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, nine, he did not say, Hey, today we celebrate the victory of communism over capitalism and said that he said that she that the keyboards used that China has stood up he said it twice. China has to. So, even chairman mouse goal and he was much more of a communist clearly than the current leaders are in many ways was still China's strong. Too. That's why I think that the communist is. Creates a form of intellectual. Laziness in American minds because they cannot look behind that what the see what is really the purpose and mission. Of the Chinese Communist Party that's why I think that thinking of it as a Chinese civilization party, then they'll begin to realize the most important thing that America in China and live in peace because Chinese civilization is not opposed to American civilization American civilization and not oppose the Chinese civilization and both can live together in peace. Right right. What do you think the US not just a public but really even the foreign policy circle. Right. The folks in DC. The people who are supposed to understand the stuff for living because it's their job. To kind of display, this laziness intellectually speaking, is it just because the Cold War was still such a recent memory I guess for the United States generally positive memory. 'cause we won that we just kind of put the Communist label back to where it was just because it was something that we think we understand. You ask them very difficult question because this is the great. Paradox. About the United States in the United States spent more money. On strategic, think-tanks than any other country in the world I think he spends hundreds of millions of dollars. You not billions of dollars on tragic thing. And yet America the America is the best digit think-tank were. America has the worst thinking in the. And and is shocking for example, though any comes to understanding China? More strategic think tanks very Lisi and using all the conception tariff Nelia the Cold War in the Soviet Union. And then applying it to China, when is clearly not relevant? China. So. The inability. Of the strategic think tanks in in the United States to understand the real nature. Of China. Is actually quite a frightening. Thing to watch today,
Trump Administration Imposes Deadline For TikTok To Be Sold
"Chinese company that owns tiktok is under a little bit of pressure from President Trump and is considering selling you the president says, he thinks tiktok is a threat to US security even given the company kind of deadline by set a date of around September fifteenth at which point is going to be out of business in the United States. Now, over the weekend president trump talked to the CEO of Microsoft, which is a potential buyer here NPR's tech reporter Bobby. Allen is with us this morning. Hi, Bobby Hey Rachel. So take a step. Back, Bobby, why does president trump have an interest in tick talks US operations in the first place? Well, trump never mentions TIKTOK without saying China to talks parent company. Bite dance is based in Beijing and trump says that means tiktok could be harvesting the private data of millions of Americans and sharing with the Chinese Communist Party now whether that's really happening is up for debate but trump, it's black or white right? It's took talks either stays chinese-owned and will be banned or the APP is bought by an American company like Microsoft and can stick around. Right. So No L. Mention this Microsoft CEO talk with President Trump over the weekend about the possibility of requiring Tiktok but that's rather remarkable. Right? Like why did the CEO of a private company feel the need to run this by the president right and that's because the trump administration including trade adviser Peter Navarro has been peering on Cable News and saying the White House does not trust Microsoft. And while it looks like right now that Microsoft has won back the confidence of the White House. The company just really wants to make sure absolutely has the blessing of the administration before trying to take Tiktok over and a big part of Microsoft's pledge is to ensure that no TIKTOK data ever leaves Americans shores. Yes to your question. The president getting intimately involved in a private company merger talks is not typical but talk right in APP known for dance challenges and Prank Videos. No last finding itself as the latest political football in Washington is dealing with just that. Can we close by talking about the business end of this like what's in it for Microsoft to buy Tiktok? What do they get out of this potential? So we hear the word Microsoft when we think of the company many people still think of windows, right? It's not exactly the hippest image in the world, but Microsoft does own xbox. It's one actually one of its most successful businesses and there's a lot of crossover potential between gamers and tiktok users not to mention bringing on tiktok would allow Microsoft to go toe to toe with facebook. Which sees talks huge popularity and is pretty envious.
Trump Administration Imposes Deadline For TikTok To Be Sold
"TIKTOK has on the market president. Trump says, he's giving the company that owns the video sharing up a month to sell it, or if not, he wants to talk banned in the US I, sent a date of around September fifteenth at which point is going to be out of business in the United States. Over the weekend, the president spoke with the CEO of one potential buyer Microsoft to explain what's going on with the future. Of TIKTOK, we've got NPR tech reporter Bobby Allen with us this morning. Hi, Bobby Tae. They're just take a step back, explain why president trump is so interested in tiktok right now. So trump doesn't talk about tiktok without talking about China, and there is a reason for that tiktok parent company Bite. Dance is based in Beijing and trump says that means tiktok harvesting the private data of millions of American citizens and sharing it with the Chinese Communist Party now wasn't that's really happening is up for debate. There's no conclusive evidence that it is, but trump views it as a black and white issue to talk either stays Chinese owned, and we'll be banned or the APP is bought by an American company like Microsoft, like you mentioned and it can stick around. So we mentioned this in the intro that Microsoft's CEO actually sat down with President trump over the weekend I mean is. The CEO of Microsoft feels it's necessary to actually vet this potential purchase with the. President. Yeah. Because the walls have been closing in on Tiktok for some time, the president has been threatening economic sanctions against Tiktok. Other members of the trump administration have been talking about other ways to basically ban Tiktok from the United States completely and Microsoft spied opportunity here. Microsoft said. Well, let's see if we can acquire the American assets of Tiktok and The do that they need to get the blessing of the trump administration. So I think Microsoft CEO just wants to be one hundred percent sure that trump is not going to try to. And challenge the acquisition because that's the last thing you want when you make a huge merger like Microsoft is looking to do with Tiktok. So from the from a business point of view, bobby wood, a tick tock acquisition I mean is that a good buy for Microsoft? Yeah, it would be huge. I mean Microsoft already is a one point, five, trillion dollar company. Right. I mean they absolutely are a global powerhouse, but not really has Microsoft isn't really known for being on the leading edge of social media platforms for young people. Many people. Still when they think of Microsoft, they think of Windows, the operating system, not exactly the hippest image in the world, but Microsoft also owns xbox. It's one of its most successful business lines in fact, and there's a lot of crossover between gamers and tiktok users not to mention bringing on to talk with allow Microsoft to go toe-to-toe with facebook, which has been looking at Tiktok and has been pretty envious. So envious that facebook has announced a copycat service that sounds a lot like tiktok. So in addition to all this Tiktok is also wrapped up in a big court case. Can you explain what that's all about? Right. So as the focus has been on Tiktok Washington troubles, another problem has been quietly brewing in federal court There's a massive class action lawsuit about allegedly stealing data from users, and the crux of sued is about whether Tiktok has been sending data about American. To China, the lawyers claim they have proof of this, but it does still have to be proven in court tiktok lawyers though say, yeah, the APP captures and stores all sorts of data as all APPS DO, but they're not giving any of it to Chinese authorities at least that's what Tiktok says.
Microsoft, TikTok officials in White House talks to prevent total ban
"Tiktok is a short form video social media platform, extremely popular with Gen, Z. and millennials during the global pandemic the APP outpaced instagram in of download eating the two billion mark back in April. If you know any teens or adults lockdown and board, you're probably familiar with the platform. Tick Tock has over two hundred, million users us but it's owned by Chinese company Bite Dance, which is where most of the political drama begins United States Secretary of State. Mike Pompeo has consistently voiced concerns about the APPS ties to the Chinese government back in July he lumped Tiktok in with wall way in terms of national security. We are now evaluating each instance where we believe that US citizens data that they have on their phones or in their system or in their healthcare records. We want to make sure that the Chinese Communist Party doesn't have a way to easily access that president trump this weekend suggested banning the APP in the US. We're looking at Tick Tock we may be banning talk. We may be doing some other things that are a couple of options. And Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has confirmed that the department's Committee on foreign. In. The US is reviewing tiktok citing. National. Security concerns, he spoke to ABC over the weekend. I do chair Syfy, which is the committee on Foreign Investment on the United States I've said publicly that it's under review I will say publicly that the entire committee agrees that Tiktok cannot stay in the current format exit risks sending back information on a hundred million Americans. Amid, Washington's focus on national security Microsoft announced that it made by tick tock or at least part of it. Over the weekend the tech giant confirmed that it's in talks to acquire the tick Tock Business in Iraq Canada, Australia, and New Zealand and then it's working with the government deal.
Trump Wants to Ban TikTok, NASA-SpaceX Mission Success, & Unemployment Benefits Expire - Monday, August 3rd
"It's Monday August third president trump wants to ban TIKTOK. Info on the NASA spacex mission success plus unemployment benefits have expired why trump's team is interested in Biden's VP pick and more. Welcome to Rob Song, podcast where I bring you the latest Progressive News and politics and ten minutes or less I'm Robert Cunningham thank you for tuning in. Let's get informed. So president trump announced on Friday night that he wants to ban Tiktok Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that trump would be making an announcement on these matters in the coming days he said this on Fox News Sunday morning futures where he also said that Tiktok, the Chinese owned short form video APP needs to be taken down via executive action in addition to Tiktok. Mike. POMPEO. Pointed to we chat, which is a Chinese messaging APP saying that both of these are feeding data directly to the. Chinese Communist Party quote for a long time a long time. The United States just said well goodness if we're having fun with it or if a company can make money off of it, we're going to permit that to happen president trump said enough going on the secretary of state added and we are going to fix it and so he will take action in the coming days with respect to a broad array of national security risks that are presented by software that connected to the Chinese Communist Party. Microsoft has emerged as wanting to potentially by all US operations of tiktok accents reports that trump does have a deal on his desk where Microsoft would lead acquisition of the US operations of six talk and Microsoft seems to believe that it's possible that a total separation can happen from tiktok parent company by Dance. It's important for you to understand that presidents normally can't just order a ban on individual companies like this but the fact that Tiktok has a foreign owner allows the Treasury Department to have broad. Authority over it. Now, at this point, it's unclear whether trump is going to allow Microsoft to buy it or if trump is just going to push for an all out ban, we don't know. But what we do know is that this is super weird coming just months before an election six does have one hundred, million US users, and so it is rather strange move it could alienate some I mean granted I don't know if it would make much of a difference, but it just seemed strange. NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Bankin are safely on earth after a historic flight to and from the International Space Station provided by SPACEX Axios says on Saturday afternoon both astronaut splashdown into the Gulf of Mexico after about two forty, eight PM eastern time a space x vessel was able to recover both astronauts from their crew, dragon? Capsule. Hurley in bank in two month mission was the first time that people have been launched into orbit from the United States. The end of the space shuttle. Program in twenty eleven. This new move of partnering for Space Exploration, with private companies can allow NASA to act more of like a buyer instead of a provider of these services now and will free up NASA's budget to focus on things like getting people to the moon and eventually other planets in the future. In fact, NASA and SPACEX already have another trip planned this time for six months with multiple. NASA. Going up to the International Space Station, this will take place around late. September. So be on the lookout. Additional unemployment benefits of six hundred dollars per week expired on Friday July thirty first and reportedly the White House Senate. Republicans and Democrats are all know we're closer to a deal? Apparently, all sides are on board though for another twelve, hundred dollar check like was done with the cares act earlier this year the main point of disagreement is the additional unemployment benefits six hundred dollars extra. A month is what people have been receiving since the cares act was passed Democrats want to continue at that rate while Republicans want to. Bring that down to two hundred additional dollars per week while eventually moving holy to seventy percent of lost wages Republicans additionally wanted to get a one week extension on the six hundred dollars per week of additional benefits passed quickly. But the Democrats are refusing because they think that the Republicans are just GonNa. Use It as just a quick win and move on. But the Democrats are saying that they want a full robust bill. Now, the Democrats have proposed a three trillion dollar deal while the Republicans are looking to pass. A one trillion dollar deal, and as of yesterday junk Schumer the Senate Minority leader said that there were significant divisions remaining but good progress is being made quote. We made good progress. There are lots of things we are still divided on and we're not close to an agreement yet, but we are making good progress and I'm hopeful that we can get to an agreement. Now they're going to resume talks today. Okay. But do not be fooled. The Republicans are trying to place the onus here on Democrats but Democrats came. Up with a bill back in May the bill back in May like I said had a three trillion dollar price tag. It was approved by the House but then has not been voted on in the Senate and Senate Republicans want to have a one trillion dollar bill that does not do nearly enough in my opinion. So but as of right now you know who's GonNa Suffer America, the American people that are unemployed we just had on Thursday. One of the worse GDP records for quarter ever if not the worst. The percentage of GDP lost was close to thirty three percent. I hope we get a deal soon things are super hard to pass in Washington obviously, and I'm glad that the Democrats are sticking their feet in and trying to get this thing passed the Democrats are not perfect and I fear that they're going to cave too much here. But we've got to get something done because there is an eviction crisis looming we need to renew the moratorium on fictions.

Trump's campaign paused ads over the weekend, which is really weird because they wanted to rebrand their messaging and new ads launching today are going to be depicting Joe Biden as a puppet of the radical left. This comes from two senior campaign officials but the most recent internal polls show that the puppet of the left's attack on Biden is going to resonate with voters and speaking personally in someone who lives in a very heavy trump territory. The this is the talking point that I've heard Oh Biden's not the problem it's. Going to be the VP you have to look out for as if Kamla Harrison. Some sort of crazy radical assuming he chooses someone like her speaking of the VP spot trump's campaign is very interested in that because the quote unquote radical left thing that they're going to be using their ads is a placeholder for whoever Joe Biden ends up picking. By the way, we will learn who Joe Biden is going to pick around on tenth multiple sources have suggested he said now he pushed back his self imposed deadline from. The first week of August to the second week and one source has said that it's going to be August tenth now. So be on the lookout here. No matter who Joe Biden picks. I think that Joe Biden is well-positioned. Of course, we all have to go out and vote that. This is not a matter of that we have to vote even if we live in California or Massachusetts or Oklahoma Even for God's sake, we have to vote for Joe Biden, but it doesn't really matter as much who he picks. Think this go around because trump's campaign is reportedly very upset that Biden doesn't have the unfavorability rating that Hillary Clinton did in two, thousand, sixteen, all of this trump at drama gotta be Biden's campaign to respond Andrew Bates. Director of rapid response said quote the American people know Joe Biden and after seven consecutive months of failed leadership during the worst possible health crisis in generations they know that our nation's capacity to join the rest of the world beating back cove nineteen has been crippled by one overriding burden donald trump. Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina said on Sunday that he believes trump is trying to put a cloud over the election and that he does not plan to leave office. If he loses Clyburn told CNN that the American people had better wake up to trump and he compared trump to Mussalini and said Russian President Vladimir Putin is akin to Hitler further representative Clyburn said quote I don't think he plans to leave the White House. He doesn't plan to have fair unfettered elections I believe that he plans to install. Himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold office. Now, all of this is to say everything that Clyburn is saying here means that we have to so overwhelmed the vote that trump cannot cheat. We have to force him out of office because on January twentieth at noon no matter how hard trump tries he will not be the president if we overwhelmed the vote and like Joe. Biden.

"What is the relationship between those great corporations which were as powerful now's anything in the world and the party because he said nothing happens without the party but if you are Alibaba off you are Jack Ma what's the nature of your relationship with the Party and the Party leadership political power and China's obscure right so we don't no it's not transparent. It's not meant to be transparent so the honest answer is I don't know and nobody does but obviously they they. They look look at each other. They talk with each other and I'm sure they are aware of each other's power under certain limits what a party has done has brought in a lot of the wouldn't have done before is bringing a lot of these merchants into the party system but people like Jack. Ma Know that without party approval cool nothing that they would do would happen nothing that they would like to do and if the party opposes it. It's not going to happen so they will be careful. They can make a lot of money to in all kinds of stuff. Don't get into politics don't do that and with Jingping. There is now a personality cult which again as described in in West sometimes it said that this is going back to kind of Maoist version of how the Party operates sometimes as you hinted. It's a much deeper and longer tradition in Chinese political and social life the imperial model which which how should we say it is this is it is it. I think go back for neither. I think the answer is that China politically is still searching for a new form of government that derives from its own traditions but also seen as highly modern inefficient and actually the democratic. One of the things that's happening today of course is that China claims to be as democratic or even more so than Western democracies McAfee's in our Western democracies haven't done very well. The last three decades the case against it's not very hard to make as you know but what they mean gene is that through various avenues including social media the leadership knows or thinks knows what is happening at the lowest possible level level so one of the I think the key element of the Chinese political tradition it is tradition is a direct connection between the top and the most bottom. mm-hmm individual there's Chinese phrase for this opening the avenues of dialogue something like that and I think one of the reasons that the culture has that was close so how did not know this kind of the Chinese arguments he hit China did not mouth did not know what was happening so that naive you that was ed in the nineteen at the age of the Internet that was going to explode these kinds of regimes in white clay now that does a case for saying that the age of the Internet is really good for these kinds of regimes because there is that long tradition for authoritarians wanting to know what's going on a now you can do it. You can hear what's being said at the bottom before it had to pastoral as filters and now now you just get that direct access. I mean that's a great example of this is the social credit system in China which is abhorrent to Westernise. I suppose it's completely violate any idea of privacy but the social system measures all kinds of things. It's like financial credit. There's money but also your behavior education better. You pay your taxes what you've done what if cross the street in the right way and all that has pulled together into some sort of credit score. Some people are not able to board trains because they see as dangerous and with social media. Yes I mean I think the Chinese central leadership is extremely concerned about what is actually but people are actually thinking and they tried to get a handle on that as much as they can so yes and what role does ideology still play if any in the Chinese Communist Party because you can do here and it's very hard to understand it from a Western perspective that the leadership still talks about marks a useful source of knowledge.

"Talking you could say the origin story of the Chinese Communist Party is just this incredible success story essentially more or less from nowhere within about twenty years to be governing a vast empire. How how did they do it. It is an incredible story. I think first of all many are you have a group of young kids students in the twenty s there were two other figures but there was not that relevant for very long time the meeting Shanghai from across China some have been embarrassed but I was coincidental and as you say thirty years later they run this vast country and then take it on and become make it into superpower so it is an amazing story. How did they do it. I think the first thing in communism of course this is history driving all this. The outcome is inevitable but that's clearly not the case. I think one of the problems for party now to admit is it. A lot of luck was involved a real great amount of Oh luck there could have been destroyed in the twenty. S indicate should at them in nineteen twenty seven. Do I tear that perch. There could have been destroyed. Loyd then in the nineteen thirties of melting setting up this this communist base in Junkie Social Beautiful country very poor nationalist again surround the nearly killed and gone along mart a huge defeat and to begin with troops of one hundred thousand people kids drawn out of the villages going along Mike hundred thousand troops by the end when you move into north China driven into this horrible horrible north China which is copied it was supposed to die. There's ten thousand people left and then in one thousand nine hundred eighty five suddenly have trump supposedly a one million. Let's say half of that would be real and then four years later in the civil war. They actually roll through this country so luck is important because we're not for the Japanese invasion day would have never gone anywhere and Mao in the nineteen one thousand nine hundred ninety s when he was welcoming Japanese visitors who want to trade with China because the Japanese believed that was important to them they kept apologizing for what they had done to China China and Mao as usual. Don't apologize without you guys. We would still be hills so it's fine and thank you very much and so he acknowledged that. I think that is a problem for leadership today. Who Keep saying again and again without a party in China would be nowhere we are the ones who will survive the the Chinese culture tiny civilization because you could say the other way to frame an origin story which is based in luck. Is We should have died so many times. The fact we didn't mean to actually destiny was on our side. There is a kind of destiny element to it the Long March and other things the closer you get obliteration not obliterated it means. You're always going to win right. That is absolutely absolutely true. They that's not the argument day. Make It is inevitable and we were always right. We make mistakes we corrected them and someone that's the kind of history create tell about themselves and was actually the first one to enforce that following of course Stalin who made the same kinds of arguments in the short course but there is something like the Tory party they are able to change leaders when it is really really necessary. I'm not suggesting to the Tory Party will actually survive this particular crisis in the same way that maybe one way to think about the problem that is useful in two years time the Chinese communist piracy. We'll have to commemorate at hundreds anniversary now. That's a big transition because it's the longest communist party in control and it's still going strong now. Why would that be special. What is the answer to that so I'm very curious to see how they will do that in two years time and I'm sure they're extremely nervous about this so we'll we'll get that but go back to the story that gets to the present..

"On. This is the pot calling the kettle black. Supposed to say that. Which is doing is engaging systemic campaign of industrial espionage to steal sensitive technologies. Intellectual property and apply. It really not only to effort to dominate key sectors of the emerging global economy to apply to an unprecedented military buildup, and what China did in two thousand fifteen when ping visited the rose garden with prison. Obama presence Pinkston we promise we're not going to do that anymore or China. Did is they shifted that effort a large portions of it over into the private sector and. Produced a law that said if you're Chinese company you have to support our intelligence collection efforts. Why would anyone in the right minds? Right. Let China establish communications infrastructure, if you know that this authoritarian police state is going to collect all of your data label that data and try to use it against you later. Hundreds of thousands of records of our federal employees have been transferred essentially to the Chinese communist party of the ten really big communications hubs in in North America. Chinese telecom already owns those the Chinese communist party has access to communications between the US and Canada. Bye. Bye. Bye. Bye controlling those hubs. And so it's just responsible. I think on the part of any government who would let the Chinese communist party into their systems, if the Chinese communist party treats its own people the way it does. Do you think they're going to treat you any better? I don't think so so so I think this could be the extinguishment of privacy. And globally is which I think is endeavouring to do by the establishment of this infrastructure. Yeah. Advisor McMaster, the key is Vance and spying, and I completely agree with general McMaster that it is wrong. One story. One point. I was in Vancouver. A few weeks ago, not buy property. In sticking to his talking point. And by the most powerful speaker that was British cattle. If you haven't watched a talk what? And she describes graphically how Facebook she says in her woods, destroyed Videsh democracy. How? By injecting lies into Facebook account that enter and disappear without trace it took months and months before the British violin could actually see the lies that Facebook had fit. So what's the solution? The solution for the problems of Facebook. While we any such corporations is to create open. Set a multilateral rules agreed to by all countries. That's what the Liberal International all is about and say, these is what is acceptable inside. But wolf in. And this is what is unacceptable inside wolf. And I can say confidently that the number one country that will oppose this will be the United States of America. Because the United States have America has fun the best civilians capability of any country in the world, and my source for this is the best professor in. This field is really mad. Google. Inside a welfare by fun. Number one is United States. Number two is Russia number three and four together, Israel and United Kingdom and the five is China. And that's the reason why Chinese get caught. It. Let's on the last topic for this free for all. And then we'll go to closing statements. This debate is originating from Toronto from Canada. And I want to go around the horn here and gets this distinguished groups advice on when the elephants are either making war or making love what do smaller powers like Canada, like your Singapore. Say do what is the strategy? Let's hope you can thrive. But maybe it's simply to survive. This clash of superpower rivalry Michael start with you. Well, small powers as you Frizette can have an enormous amount of influence when they gather together in a coalition in one of the organizations that does this. The most important is the UN general assembly been efforts to declare that US practices, torture or does Valence. If you do it kind of test count in the UN general assembly in won't pass. There's a number of why by the way, I praise Lester Pearson for his role in the shaping of the UN charter in nineteen forty five and his almost time the secretary general of the UN the UN structure is self is probably the most important part of the global international order. It includes arms control treaties and Canada's also played an important role and getting into to powers of the Soviet Union Russia and the United States to have bilateral nuclear arms, control treaties. There are a number of successes. China has just destroyed one of the most important arms control treaties. There ever was a treaty on inter so-called intermediate nuclear missiles of a certain range that we and the Russians would destroy completely. We had teams in each other's factories. To make sure nobody built missiles like then everything was fine. And then China began to deploy missiles thousands of them in just that range causing both Russia, which has concerns and even fears about Chinese military and us to withdraw from the treaty it caused the Russians in response to these Chinese nuclear missiles to even say we are now going to place more emphasis on nuclear forces than ever before to have some kind of countermeasure to China's doing recently, the American side asked China could you join us in three way talks with Russia, China and America to reduce those missiles and all the others because soon the entire arms control agreement on ICBM's expire. Can you also reduce defense spending help us reduce defense spending all three capitals, China gave its answer? Yes yesterday. No. No. So that's in the international system that really worries me a lot. So what's the can? Kendrick can help with that can contain. We like this idea of three way talks China. Why don't you get on board? Really tried to set up is really a false debate here about China versus the United States and everybody in between gets trampled on. This is really an issue between free and open societies enclosed authoritarian systems, and despite the narrative of unilateralism there's been tremendous multinational cooperation on confronting the predatory and and dangerous policies of the Chinese communist party. So if you just consider, for example, the bad effects of the one belt one road, and how that's creating these debt dependencies and failed projects and bolstering corrupt authoritarian regimes really from from from as I mentioned. Venezuela to Cambodia to Imbaba way. What we've done is worked with candidate States, Canada, Japan, Australia. New Zealand have come together to say, you have to be some standards standards. And so now, we are stab wishing standards that can help help reduce the threat of one belt one road to these other countries, and we're also putting our money together. So that there are financial alternatives to the predatory policies of the Chinese communist party. Henry mentioned the IB as funding. Some of these projects very few projects were funded by the. Because candidate and other sit on its board, and they won't conscience. The funding of these corrupt projects in corrupt governments. That's another example. Another example is on December. Twentieth of last year. Canada was at the vanguard of sixteen other countries who simultaneously exposed the systematic campaign of industrial espionage affected by so-called. AP ten all nations out simultaneously range of sanctions and indictments against individuals. That were engaged in that espionage the prison. She had promised. There would never they would never do again. And again, don't let short trick us into thinking that this is about the United States and China the European Commission last month officially recognized China as system Matic rival promoting alternative models of governance. And so also recent. Media exposures, the US Canadian journalists investigative journalists have worked together to expose how the Chinese communist party could have allowed this drug Fenton. All this murderers drug to be exported without any checks into both of our countries. And by the way, the per capita death rate in candidate is even higher than the massive death rate in the United States. And so journalists an investigative journalists not just governments play a very very important role in exposing the activities and efforts of the Chinese communist party to export its authoritarian model. Sure. By national security adviser, HR McMaster. Kyushu Mahubani philosophy. I would say though them on said you'll question. Your question was what most doing that question? They went on and give features. So the question is what should small states do and the States, Canada and Singapore by the hundred and one hundred nine hundred members of the UN. China the US hundred ninety one. Ninety-one states. They would like a stronger United Nations they would like stronger international law, and they would like things to educate educated by impartial bodies and not sort of months made by one follow on the other countries. Now, I know. American papers, in general McMaster was the national security adviser. He fought a very noble fight. He tried very hot to persuade President Trump not to walk away from multi-lateral agreements. Not to walk away.
