"David Camp, Scott Robbins. What in the world happened here, David With our ambassadors, o our diplomats, boy. So the Chinese government? Uh well, they promised now they're going to stop using Anal swabs on American diplomats to test for covert 19. Because diplomats were like, Hey, this is this is a little undignified. You're telling us to drop Brow, bend over and say, Ah! Don't like this State Department spokesperson says the State Department never agreed to this kind of testing and protest to directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and we learned that some staff were so, uh, subject to it. Beijing says Okay, yeah, the test was given in error. Oh, do you believe that? No. I mean, the Chinese government is basically just seeing what they can get away with for fun at this point. How do you swab someone's case, sir? By mistake. This is how we test their. I mean, there is such a thing as a test there, understand? Covered, And it just so happens that the U. S diplomats get that test. Yeah. I mean, you think the nose one is uncomfortable? This one you're talking about? Right? Going three inches in diplomat was like I'm not doing that.

Fresh update on "chinese government" discussed on Radio From Hell
"This is one of the few positive things to come from The coronavirus in February is usually the height of the flu season. But with all the masks in the distance thing, and I'm not leaving our houses, they say the flu is virtually disappeared. There are almost no reported cases. Of the flu. So if you got diarrhea this year, you'll only have yourself to blame for it. There's a new covert variant spreading in New York right now, one with the mutation that may weaken the effectiveness of the vaccines we can't get, and that's just here. There are new variants coming from all over the world in China, you probably heard they've developed a covert tests that's said to be much more effective. When it comes to identifying which strain of covert you have and when you got it, that kind of stuff, But with this test steady, your nose swab goes into your bottom, and that has resulted now in a diplomatic crisis between nations because some officials that the U. S State Department claimed they were forced to take the anal test. Some kind of power move, I guess. But the Chinese government is saying no, they weren't forced. China claims the test were given in error, which is quite an error.
an Update on China's Digital Yuan
"An update on china's digital yuan and its relationship with private fintech companies we've been following the testing and the rollout of the digital yuan and the significance is a couple different pieces. There's i significance in the context of china trying to create an alternative to the. Us led global financial system. But there's a second context as well which has to do with the relationships between private fintech companies in china and the chinese government itself indeed it seems increasingly clear that step one in creating that alternative system is consolidating power at home what we saw late last year when china stepped in and stopped the financial groups. Ipo and really reshape. The way that company was designed are all a part of that larger battle today. Bloomberg is running a story about how china is pulling in two of the biggest fintech companies to its digital you on trial. The article is titled china. Enlists aunt backed my bank expanding digital you on trial and here are the key lines. My bank service will soon be introduced to the people's bank of china's digital yuan app. People familiar said requesting not to be identified because the matter is private tencent backed. We bank will also participate. One of the people said the e wallets from the two firms will have exactly the same function as those from. The six state owned lenders in the trial said the person adding the two banks to the pilot will help china's central bank expand its influence and user coverage in its push to establish the first national digital currency from a major central bank. When the people's bank of china. I announced its plans. It was viewed as some as a government move to reclaim the two hundred ninety. Three trillion yuan about forty five trillion dollars payments industry from ant groups ali pay and tencent holdings we chat pay. So again i think there are two really important dimensions to keep watching here. The first is the geopolitical battle. Us versus china. But then there's also the question of public versus private money within china itself
Space Junk Chronicals
"Since nineteen fifty seven. Humanity has been launching satellites into earth orbit. It's estimated in the last four years almost nine thousand satellites in total have put into orbit for the vast majority of space age. There was never a plan for what would be done with the satellites after their lifetime. They were launched without any thought as to how or if they could ever come down the nine thousand or so satellites. Five thousand are still in orbit. Two thousand our service in three thousand are dead. D satellites are usually quite large. They can vary in size from a bus to a box and they aren't the real problem when it comes to space junk the big problem is debris when you send up a rocket there's all sorts of miscellaneous parts on the upper stage of the rocket that holds the satellite. That will go into orbit with it. This can include metal panels bolts screws and even flakes of paint. You'd think that given how big spaces that space junk might not be a problem as douglas adams noted quote space is big really big. You won't believe how vastly hugely mind. Bogglingly big it is suppose you had a million pennies that would be enough to easily fit in a minivan. Now let's suppose you distributed those pennies all over the world including the ocean and antarctica. Each penny would have one hundred ninety. Seven square miles of space or a single penny would have a square which was fourteen by fourteen miles factor in that the lowest earth orbit is a sphere larger than the earth. And that there's a vertical dimension where we could put pennies at different elevations. Then it would seem that space junk was a big problem if the object just sat there. That's true it wouldn't be a problem however all that junk isn't just sitting there. It's orbiting earth at extremely high speeds. Any piece of space junk is probably travelling at at least seventeen thousand miles per hour when something is traveling that fast no matter how small it is it can cause a great deal of damage. Moreover everything is on a slightly different orbit that means over time these orbits can cross and the longer something remains in orbit the greater the odds that these past will eventually cross and that things will smash together some of the things which are floating around in space include two cameras that got away from astronauts players a screwdriver or wrench a full toolbag garbage bags a lens cap a spatula and microscopic flakes of rocket propellant and that is on top of all the rocket debris and dead satellites if a ship with astronauts were to be hit it could lead to the deaths of the crew if important satellite were to be hid it could lead to a loss of critical communications. Gps signals or observational capabilities. This isn't just a theoretical problem. There have been cases of collisions in space. The space shuttle headed many tiny impacts from debris in space on the seven space shuttle mission. In one thousand. Nine hundred three. The front windshield was hit by a fleck of paint which damaged the window. It looked very similar to what happens when a rocket. your windshield damage. To the shuttle's he tiles was so common that the eventually began flying the shuttle backwards in space so that the engines which weren't used during re entry took most of the damage. The shuttle endeavour was hit by an object so large that its radiator looked like it was hit with a bullet. The international space station has to move on average at least once a year to avoid space debris the soviet cosmos twelve. Seventy five satellite was hit by an object in one thousand nine hundred eighty one which was believed to be the first case of a satellite being destroyed by space junk. Perhaps the worst case occurred in two thousand nine when the kosmos twenty fifty one satellite which was dead smashed into the iridium thirty three satellite at a relative speed of twenty six thousand miles per hour. These collisions and there have been several more only make things worse. In the first case three hundred objects were created from the collision in the second there were suddenly thousands of new objects thrown off on different trajectories in orbit in two thousand seven. The chinese government didn't anti-satellite missile test. That blew up a satellite in space creating tens of thousands of pieces of debris this problem of junk causing collisions which then creates exponentially more junk risk. Something called the kessler syndrome. This hypothesized in nineteen seventy eight by nasa. Scientists david kessler. He proposed that collisions could start a cascade of debris which would cause more collisions and even more debris rinse and repeat.
How Clubhouse Cracked Chinas Firewall
"When you go and clubhouse can feel like a weird cross between listening to a tedtalk and a confessional. Sometimes people give what sound like canned presentations other times. It's much more personal. Is essentially real time audio a phone call. None of the content and the conversations are saved. So if you miss a chat then you miss the chat. These rooms sometimes have thousands of people and those who want to speak put their hand up and sometimes they wait for hours does it. Does it feel different for you than other social media platforms i've got on. It's it's just like eavesdropping. Kind of it does feel different than other social media apps so you know better than anybody the intimacy of audio in certain rooms especially the rooms that i ended up spending a lot of time in people really shared personal thoughts in a way that you wouldn't share even if you had a meal with somebody that he met for the first time and then on the other hand there is an anonymity to it in the sense that it's not like a zoom video conference where you see the other person's face and so you can sort of hide behind your avatar your profile picture and just talk like with any social media app. It's impossible to verify that people clubhouse or telling the truth about their lives but melissa said these detailed conversations felt real and raw there. Was this moment where somebody was talking about. She john and what was going on there and the person offhandedly mentioned yet. I'm there right now and wieger An ethnic group in xinjiang region have been systematically surveilled and detained by the chinese government. More than a million have been sent to internment camps. Getting to hear their voices especially in real. Time is astonishing rare. It was like a voice that i've personally been wanting to hear so much i mean. Of course there's been so much. Good journalism done about the detention camps in in xinjiang. But to hear somebody in real time it just felt very visceral. What were you hearing. So everyone is sort of like open mic everyone gets on stage and then talks for a few minutes and then sort of somebody else comes up and says their share so people were asking people in the room including han chinese and when i say han chinese i mean the ethnic majority han population in china were asking him what was going on there and he was confirming things that has been reported such as security checkpoints friends who've were in rate reeducation camps. But were now. He said they were being forced to learn mandarin that they had to learn about xi jinping political ideology and. They didn't really like to talk about what happened when they were in there. Then there was a hunt. Chinese woman who has but she had grown up in china and she was clearly fairly new overseas. And she started talking. About how ashamed. She felt being chinese knowing that her government was doing this feeling so helpless because there is no way you can lobbying authoritarian state and. She felt helpless about what was happening. She john and she was saying this and you could tell that she was tearing up and she was saying that chinese are standing on the wrong side of history and there were weaker in the room. Both of course this person who had said he was in china and a few weaker activists who live and work overseas but the rooms were not all about coming together. There was conflict to there. Were several thousand people in a room and there was a hunt chinese who denied that anything had happened to the week that it was all western media propaganda and fake news. And after this person's spoke a wiegert took the stage and tried to methodically rebut. What was said but he just broke down and started crying about to cry and and he put himself on mute. So that we couldn't hear the sobs but you imagine it and the room was just quiet. No one knew what to say. And it reminded me that. What's happened on clubhouse for the chinese speaking world hasn't just been a kumbaya moment. It's also been extremely painful. Sometimes
China bans BBC World News from broadcasting
"Television channel from London. NPR's Frank Langfitt reports that the move comes after a British regulator revoke the license of a Chinese state broadcaster. China's broadcast regulator accused the BBC of failing to report accurately and impartially while undermining China's national interests and ethnic solidarity. Most recently, the Chinese government criticized and denied BBC reports that women and internment camps for Wiegert and other Muslims in Xinjiang were subject to rape and torture. The BBC says it's disappointed with China's decision and insisted reports fairly impartially and without fear or favor. Chinese government already censored some BBC content on the broadcasters. TV audience in the country is tiny. The BBC has not been allowed to broadcast directly into Chinese homes. It's been available in international hotels and the homes of some foreigners and more globally minded Chinese Frank Langfitt. NPR
China bans BBC World News from broadcasting
"And other charges. This is NPR. The Chinese government is banning the BBC from airing its world news program in China and as NPR's John Rule, which reports the move comes just days after a decision by Britain's communications regulator to strip a Chinese state TV channel of its broadcast license. China's radio and TV regulator says the BBC violated requirements that news be truthful and fair and that it harmed China's national interests and undermined national unity. The BBC came under fire in China for report this month on conditions in reeducation camps for ethnic wingers in the Xinjiang region. The report cited former detainees describing systemic rape and sexual abuse of women in the facilities. China's Foreign Ministry says the report has no factual basis. But there may be more to China's decision to ban the BBC World News Last week, The British government said it was pulling the license for C G. T. N. China's state run global television network. It says it did so because China's Communist Party oversees the network's
WHO says coronavirus unlikely to have leaked from China lab
"Keane is retired four star general and the chairman of the Institute for the Study of War and a Fox News. Senior Strategic analyst. General King Great Have you back with us here at the large angry here? That's America, Sir. Big news this week. One of the big headlines. I'm not sure how much we can take from it is the World Health Organization announcing that we should no longer look seriously at the idea that the Corona virus originated in A Level four laboratory in Wuhan, China, that Wuhan Institute of our ology, they said. It's very unlikely it came from there, and in fact, we shouldn't research it anymore. The United States came out and said, Well, not so fast. The jury's still out. That's what the State Department said the White House, Additionally, saying they're looking forward to actually scrutinizing the data to come to a conclusion. What do you make of this? I think we have to have a pretty healthy dose of skepticism when it comes to anything dealing with The World Health Organization. It was not a completely dependent investigation that because the Chinese were getting graded on on the back on that entire team. Uh, you're right. And from what I understand most of what the team was looking, that was Chinese analysis of data, as opposed to the raw data itself. That remains to be seen. I have certainly haven't seen Seen the report. But given the lives that have come out of China for almost a year, given the fact that it is well over a year since the disease broke out of Wuhan City, and the Chinese have had denied anybody from taking a look at this issue. Certainly by now, they've got this story straight in the Davis Strait to support their conclusions. And it's likely took place transcript from from bat stolen animals to humans and that likely place was in the Wuhan market. They want to see her hurt anybody away from the fact that this could happen in the Chinese government laboratory. Uh, where possibly of experiments were taking place with that particular disease or similar diseases themselves for their own purposes, not the least of which is Uses a pie biological weapons. General Kane. Additionally, my concerns don't just aren't just about the Chinese members of this team. There's a member of the team called Dr Peter De Zack. He's a molecular biologist from Rutgers University is one of the lead guys here for this World Health Organization investigation and he's been responsible for directing American and British taxpayer funding. To that lab. Specifically, that's not that's not unknown thing. That is public knowledge. Should he even be a part of a team that's investigating? Ah place that he directed money to certainly absolutely not given that that particular conference Conflict of interest, which is alarming in it of itself, much less you know why he's on the inspection team? Yes, we know full well that the fusion Of what has taken place in the civilian and commercial sector and the military in China is very, very significant. It is priority one at any activity. What's the weather like this? Under the guise of trying to bend after prevent pandemics could possibly lead. To military capabilities is the issue. I really have the whether this guy's on the inspection team or not, but it does point to the bias that's likely inherent. On this inspection team will begin with sure.
China-U.S. Trade Agreement Fail
"Jad bound welcome back to the indicator. Thanks for having me so chad. We know now that china is falling short of spending as much money on american products as it had agreed to spend to buy so. Give us some details. Which products is china. Not buying as much of as we might have expected based on the terms of the agreement the one everybody focuses on. I think is is soybeans. That's you know sort of been in the news The most at the end of the day china actually bought a fair amount of soybeans. It's just they didn't buy as an enormous amount as as the agreement had hoped it would buy so. I think that's that's the big one. The other two that really stuck out to me though in the farm sector at all that really got less attention and and those were things like airplanes and cars so we sell tens of billions of dollars of airplanes every year to china and then cars and those were particularly hard hit starting in twenty eighteen during the trade war and they just really never recovered last year. By the way chad i gotta ask. How much can we blame. The pandemic for china. Not buying as much as it said it was going to buy. Look it's it's certainly contributed. The pandemic did hit china. hit them. I hit them hard. But but in terms of all of the economy's out there in the world china grew more than than most last year. I think it's growth rate was around two point three percent or so so yes. The pandemic certainly played a role. But it's not the entire explanation for why they didn't live up to the agreement. Jad one of the things you've emphasized in your analysis of this trade deal is that there is something inconsistent. Maybe even contradictory between the nature of this agreement that the us reach with china and the goals that the us had been pursuing in the trade war in the first place and there's an important economic lesson in that contradiction. So what do you mean by that. This agreement really was unique. We never see trade agreements that include these these purchase commitments. That they say they're going to buy this amount of money And it's especially strange in in the trade war context because one of the complaints that the us has had with china is that it's not a market economy that it's state mix too many decisions. It doesn't let the private sector Interact with mark enough and so here you have the. Us government telling the chinese government. This is how much you want to buy. These are really big. Numbers will the only way they're ever going to get close. If the chinese government tells its companies. Don't go buy from somebody cheaper. You have to buy the stuff in the united states in order to live up to the deal so it is very you know kind of inconsistent with what the overall us policy and being worried about china's not being market economy in squaring those two things in the the trump administration obviously negotiated this deal and so far. We only know that the biden administration is looking at the agreement. A new. but we don't actually know what the biden administration is going to do about it as a given that china has not done what it promised to do. Does the biden administration have to do something about that or can it just kind of like let it go. Just ignore it. If the united states government kind of ultimately let's just slide without acknowledging that that something has gone wrong this kind of would call into question all of america's trade agreements right if trading partners think that they can sign something on the dotted line. Not come anywhere close to living up to its obligations and there's no penalty for a you know. Hey that that that. That sounds great. So it's clear the by administration is going to have to do something here They're going to have to renegotiate this some element of this and finally chad. The the biden administration has also said that it's going to work with other countries with us. Allies in trying to figure out how to approach trade with china. But you said a second ago. This agreement with china essentially says that china needed to buy all these products from the us which could in turn mean that china would be spending less money. Importing these same products from other countries including from those same that the us is trying to work with now. So how does an agreement like this one influence the way that other countries would think about partnering with the us right now. They think that all the united states cares about is getting china to buy more soybeans from us more airplanes from us in in in in not airbus in europe more cars from us in not japan and if they think that then they're not going to be as willing to work with us on the common trade issues with china as president biden has said that he wants to do right. He wants to work with allies. Well in order to work with allies. You gotta get the to trust you in right now. They don't really trust the united states because they think all we care about is getting china to purchase our stuff. Not there's where you're saying. Is that an agreement like this one goes directly against the interest of us allies and to that might undermine their willingness to be our allies to work with us. It's exactly right. You know if what they're concerned about is watching their back because they don't think the americans are actually willing to work with them They're not going to be willing to work with us either. So i think this is the first thing that the president biden needs to convince these allies of that. We actually have their interests at heart as well.
TikTok Sale Is Shelved
"Last year. Tiktok was a hot topic. The trump administration had threatened to ban the popular video app owned by china bytedance. If the company didn't divest its us operations to an american company after a lot of twists and turns the trump administration signed off on a preliminary deal between tiktok or and walmart and over the past few months. Regulators have been working with the companies to hammer out the final details. But now there's a new wrinkle. We report that the biden administration is shelving the deal indefinitely pending a broader review of potential security risks. John mackinnon covers tech policy for the wall street journal and he joins me now to explain. Hi john thanks for being here. Glad to be here. So john catch us up. This deal was reached in the fall. What's happened since then. The short answer is not a lot has been happening. The deal that was announced in september kind of language since then for a couple of reasons one is that president trump himself kind of lost interest in it as the election. Season heated up. And then you know the post-election drama kind of consumed him then the biden administration took over and they have decided to do kind of a big picture. Broadscale review of all of the china tech issues that the trump administration kind of left hanging and that's causing them to want to rethink basically the entire tiktok arrangement. So what can you tell us about some of the reasoning behind that. And what does it say about the administration's priorities concerning tech policy. Especially when it comes to well. I think that there's recognition on both sides of the political spectrum that the issues being raised by chinese tech platforms and chinese technology in general are real concerns and are substantial concerns and the trump administration to its credit was kind early to recognize some of these concerns but their approach. I think the biden people feel was a little bit scattershot. That's not a word that they use. But i think that that's really how it looks to them. And so they're trying to find a way to address all of these data security national security issues in a rational way that kind of can be used across the board in different contexts and with different chinese tech companies. So they're they're trying to avoid the kind of individual targeting of companies that the trump administration was effectively. Doing how are tiktok and its owner bytedance responding to security concerns. You know bytedance has offered to do a lot of different things but so far. I think it's fair to say has not done everything that the us government would like the us. Government wants to find some way to make sure that american users data stays out of the purview of the chinese communist party of the chinese government and the folks who run bytedance assure everybody that they would never turn over american users data to the chinese government. But so far. I think it's fair to say. The american government is not convinced that that's right and they're really looking for some assurances that this chinese based company will not ever ballot to the wishes of the chinese government in turn over american users data and it's frankly tough nut to crack so that's what led the trump administration to try to concoct a deal that would effectively transfer ownership of the american operation to a majority. Us company but nothing has come of that so far now i think it's fair to say that the bytedance folks think that they have sufficient protections built into their system now to keep data out of the hands of the chinese government but us officials are not convinced that it's enough. What's the impact for oracle and walmart of shelving this deal even if only temporarily well i think there are different implications for those two companies. I think walmart went into this with the idea of developing a closer relationship with tiktok and building up its promotions and its brand through tiktok in i think that they have sort of reached enough understandings with the bytedance folks and tiktok on the marketing side. There was they've developed enough partnerships on the marketing side that they are basically happy even if they don't ever wind up with an ownership stake in the us operation oracle. I think is hoping to play a role in maybe hosting. The data may be securing the data that's developed by the us operation. I think that they would still like to own a chunk of this business. I think that they would like to have more of a presence in platforms in social media. But they'll be happy with what they get. If this deal does go forward. There are still a couple of legal loosens here to write. What would still need to be tied up will. There are a lot of cases that are going on but you know cases come and go As the needs arising go away. So i think that there are a lot of interesting issues being presented by these cases you know the extent to which the american president can exert this kind of control on foreign based tech platforms. That seemed to present a national security risks. I think that that's an issue that even congress probably will need to address further and there's some interest within the biden administration in trying to do that to try to get congress to do something. It may be that the next move is really in congress's court all right. That's wall street. Journal reporter john mackinnon. John thank you so much for joining me today. You're

Walmart's use of TikTok will likely continue, even if deal with Oracle falls apart
"Well. I'm sure glad we wasted all of our time worrying about this a few months ago. Sources are saying that the trump administration plan to force the sale of tiktok to a group including oracle and walmart has been shelved indefinitely quoting the wall street journal. Discussions have continued between representatives of bytedance and us national security officials. The people said those discussions have centred on data security and ways to prevent the information tiktok collects on american users from being accessed by the chinese government. They said but no imminent decision on how to resolve the issues. Surrounding tiktok is expected as the biden administration determines its own response to the potential security risks posed by chinese tech companies collection of data quote. We plan to develop a comprehensive approach to securing. Us data that addresses the full range of threats. We face national. Security council spokeswoman. Emily this includes the risk posed by chinese apps and other software that operate in the us in the coming months we expect to review specific cases in light of ak- prehensile understanding of the risks. We face and quote so that definitely sounds like they're kind of sweeping under the rug. What i can't figure out from this whole mess is was it always kabuki theatre at least for the smart money like did everyone that mattered know that this was just gonna blow over eventually anyway and that's why you didn't see big players wanting to touch it with a ten foot pole. They basically just let the unlikely rubes of oracle and walmart. Step up to play the mark until the jig was up. It certainly seems like that was the case now. In retrospect
TikTok Divestment Reportedly Indefinitely Suspended
"The wall street journal. Sources say the. Us plan to have bytedance. Divest tick tock. North american operations to a group including oracle and walmart have been indefinitely suspended. Talks have reportedly continued under the biden administration between bytedance and us national security officials but specifically regarding ways to prevent tax information on us users being accessed by the chinese government.
UK strips China's state media channel of broadcast license
"China has been recent years trying to improve its global image. That effort took a hit today in London, Britain's communications regulator announced it is stripping the state run China Global Television network of its broadcast license there, MPR's Frank Langfitt explains from London. The C GT N That's it's known, opened its European production center here to great fanfare about two years ago. Today off come, the British regulator announced it was pulling the network's license. Officials said. The reason was straightforward. The people in charge of CG Tien's editorial policy are ultimately beholden to China's Communist Party in British Broadcasting law forbids political bodies from controlling license holders.

Not over Communist Party control of the network. But over Chinese state media is airing of what Humphrey says was a forced confession. It followed his arrest in 2000 and 13 on charges of illegally acquiring the personal data of Chinese nationals. Well, of course you go way up 10 personal information by illegal means. I regret what I did and apologize to the Chinese government. Humphrey insists he never actually confessed and that the interview was doctored. He also says his captors pressured him to make a statement by withholding medical treatment for his prostate cancer, considering the kind of brutal human rights violations that CD Tien has been involved with extracting and packaging forced confessions from prisoners held under torture in China, who've never been in front of a judge.

They're considering are a combination of hand tracking i tracking a dial on the headset or something. They call a thimble like accessory. Oh boy well the thing that jumped out to me. I because we have talked about this before. This rumor has been swirling. I mean really for years but it seems to be more of a reality than ever. Is that three thousand dollar price points now again. It's a rumor and yes. Apple tends to make things that are similar to other products that are more expensive and then says but it's apple so you know we can do that sort of thing. Three thousand dollars. Oh my goodness Compare that to oculus to for three hundred dollars. That's a crazy price point. I don't know how the company could get away with such a thing.

China gets in on the SolarWinds act
"Reuters reports that the fbi investigation of the solar wind supply. Chain attack is looking into evidence that chinese threat actors successfully exploited a vulnerability in the company's software to compromise the national finance center a payroll system operated by the us department of agriculture. The department of agriculture's reaction to the story is ambiguous. The agriculture department emailed reuters to say that. Usda has notified all customers including individuals and organizations whose data has been affected by the solar winds orion code compromise but a second departmental spokesman said after the story broke that there was no data breach related to solar winds at usda but offered no further clarification the vulnerability the chinese threat actors are believed to have exploited is said to be different from the one used by. Unc twenty four fifty two. The thread actor widely believed to be a russian intelligence service. Reuters anonymous sources told them that the campaign used and infrastructure that have been previously deployed by state backed chinese cyber spies as the washington post observes many have suspected another group was also actively exploiting solar winds but reuters. Report is the first to suggest that this second threat actor was connected to the chinese government. The chinese foreign ministry denied any involvement observing i and in fairness correctly that attribution is a complex technical issue the ministry then moved onto unlikely insistence on the usual pieties. China resolutely opposes and combat's any form of cyber attacks and cyber theft. It's doubtful that any government on the planet even say the holy sea or san marino resolutely opposes any form of cyber attack unless cyber attack is construed narrowly as to rule out any form of interception surveillance or retaliation if any pure cyber are running any government. It's doubtful that government is in beijing. Some have said that majors cyber attacks are often more like riots than bank jobs with multiple actors going after the same targets for their own reasons. Reuters quotes former. Us chief information security officer retired air force general gregory to hill. Who thinks it's not that unusual for more than one group to hit the same product. He prefers the racing metaphor to the criminal. One quote it wouldn't be the first time we've seen a nation state actor surfing in behind someone else. It's like drafting in nascar. To heal said it's worth noting that while the national finance center is housed in the department of agriculture. Its responsibilities aren't confined there. The nfc also handles payroll for other government agencies. Some of the more interesting ones from the point of view of national security are the fbi the state department the department of homeland security and the treasury department the nfc claims on its website to payroll more than six hundred thousand employees and also provides customizable and flexible financial management services and integrated shared service solutions. The data held by the nfc would include social security numbers phone numbers personal email addresses and banking information and also associations between individual employees and their agencies.

"And what about the downside of civil rights with this model? We've seen examples such as hydrological departments, where large scale hydropower dams are put in place without fully consulting various communities whose lives are affected, and when these projects go ahead, they not only have very substantial human costs. In fact, they turn out to have very significant environmental damages over the long run as well. China is the biggest emitter of greenhouse gasses in the world. They also have one of the most ambitious plans. Ago. Carbon neutral in the world, aiming to reach net zero emissions. As as I said by 2060, How do you think the government ultimately plans to get there? Will the policy continue to revolve around a government that remains insular? There seems to be a very strong emphasis that China will continue to develop its carbon cap in trade mechanism domestically that is a warring sign. Chinese government, essentially his granted itself or well grant itself sweeping power in determining who will have these allowable emission credits that's assigned to them. Every business that there is will have some sort of a carbon footprint. I just don't know what kind of allocation mechanism will be the most equitable one, and if that mechanism is completely dictated By the Chinese government. There will be some Maurin consequences down the road, whether we like it or not, will the rest of the world and the years going forward be essentially following in China's environmental footsteps its policy simply by virtue of the massive scale China presents a lot of the things that China has been doing are indeed Environmentally beneficial, at least in dish work term, But I don't think we're in a position to make environmental gains by paying social and cultural.

class families without college degrees actually Reagan started that twenty one of a blue collar Americans some anymore and and they're not mutually exclusive either again that for another day the China hawks economic nationalism advocates of industrial policy of found themselves playing the role of Cassandra who saw the cost of war fresh tan after warnings were dismissed and it goes on it's a smart piece this fellow is a smart guy he writes very well but I'll tell you when all this will change I even heard somebody on TV or somebody on radio whatever it was who's who is we got to spend big and go back but I have a little concerned possible inflation this is the only show that's been talking about inflation and I'm gonna talk about it Sunday also with Steve Moore what they've done with this two point two trillion before that three hundred and fifty dina before that AT some billion if they do it again and what they've done with a trillion dollar deficit each year and Republicans and Democrats in Congress and this administration is the of baked in inflation it's just a matter of time and some of them are proud of it they're proud that the federal reserve's gonna have another four trillion dollars to put out there some other brand this is really a six trillion dollar quote unquote stimulus do you know how selfish and package this is for future generations you know what inflation does those health care dollars become less the cost of ventilators go up the cost of beds go up that's what inflation does it drives up the cost of food if tries at the cost of everything because there's so many dollars chasing fewer and fewer services and products they can't keep up and so when you're pumped two point two trillion in a four point five trillion dollar budget six point seven trillion dollars in one year into the economy when you've been running trillion dollar deficits each year we'll get to that later and now we're talking about bailing out the state what do you think's going to happen to the stage where we have inflation and their budgets go to hell and these hospitals go to hell and GM and Ford these magnificent patriotic companies what's going to happen to them and moreover what's going to happen to your social security what's going to happen the cost of Medicare and your little pension that you're trying to earn a retire on what do you think's gonna happen when there's ten eleven twelve percent interest rates I want your money is worth less inflation is an attack on the currency it is a cancer on the economy and it's very very difficult to get it under control and if you think health care costs are expensive now and beds and ventilators and everything else that you need to nationalize aspects of GM you wait we can't be sure when it's going to happen nobody can but you cannot have ten years of quantitative easing now the biggest spending bills in American and world history and not have consequences we saw that after the great society when I spent a fortune on Vietnam and a fortune on the welfare state and by the way this spending back then compared to the spending now the spending back then looks like they were Piper's we made an announcement apparently it's now the official policy of the United States government that they are the employer of the last resort indirectly but it's true you lose a job as a result of this you're gonna get paid you're going to get paid matter fact some people are going to get paid even more than they're paying now you're going to get paid and it goes on and on the government's going to take a percentage of the airlines but we're not socialists and what I guess what bothers me is almost the gleeful nous like the attack on GM today it's likely furnace and for your next for you better not you better not step out alone will do the same thing to you I ask you blue collar workers who work for Ford GM and Chrysler and these other companies you happy about this are you happy about this do you want the federal government in charge your company Gee I wonder what could go wrong do you know how complicated and difficult it is ladies and gentlemen to retool for making pick up trucks to making ventilators you know how expensive it is in this press release stuff that we saw today this announcement today we have no idea what they're talking about you are not just point to this whole thing what exactly where the negotiations about what exactly did GM one what exactly did they want in terms of pay if you want twenty thirty forty thousand ventilators why did they six to say six thousand do they not have parts I would like to know before joining in on the bop I want to know what took place what happened why are we threatening for it now these are companies that volunteered to help

"Larry what are these two sides saying well. They're saying that they're violating their term. They don't wanna be abused and misused by any government or any the other actor when it comes to misinformation and propaganda and this is getting pretty nasty. According to the new york times the chinese government is putting up posting that the protesters in hong kong or linked to isis fighters and her like isis fighters in their put up there by western power so they're really doing pretty heavy duty eighty misinformation campaign going on hong kong and that's reminiscent about what the russians did win came to our elections and other forms of misinformation in facebook twitter and other social media companies that are very sensitive to that now and don't want that to continue to happen learn from a technology standpoint. How tricky is it for for any of these entities facebook twitter whatnot to actually track the source of some of these messages well. It's not terribly tricky to track the location where it's coming from unless the people who are doing it are going out of their way to use virtual private networks in other ways gift zero to their location so depending upon how the chinese are if the chinese trying to hide where they're coming from it could be it could be hard of the other problem is when it comes to artificial intelligence. It's often difficult difficult to block messages like this could they can look very very similar to legitimate messages so they have to use a sort of a theory things location the type of messages how how people are interacting with it to try to highlight what's going on and then you to verify that they're actually misinformation. It's just opposed to somebody's ideas..

"But you've got Venezuela. He'll playing out before a very is so that should be kind of clue to people on how well, socialism works. It doesn't but guess students were asked. By campus reform, if they trusted the Chinese government over Donald Trump. Here's what they had to say here on campus and about hundred other campuses around America there. Confucius institutes the Chinese government, essentially, partnering with universities to in their words spread the Chinese culture, teaching Mandarin, courses, cultural exchange things like that. Now twenty of these confused institutes around the country, shut down in the past few years, because some people are worried that they could be centers for propaganda from the Chinese government. The Trump administration department offense are saying you're spreading misinformation on campus. The Chinese government saying another not were just teaching culture and history who do be more inclined to trust the Trump administration or the Chinese government Chinese government. In this situation, probably the Chinese government. Jeez. I don't know anything about enough about the Chinese government to know if they have a reputation for honesty or dishonesty, but about Trump that he definitely has repetition for dishonesty. So it wouldn't trust him. I do independent research on my own. The Trump administration is very anti intellectual very anti like university like calling them like liberal propaganda machine. So it's like it's not only every cisa tack against Chinese people, but it's also like an anti intellectual attack. A lot of support our president, obviously lied about country..

"Of Chinese tech workers seem to be Dr Lee points out. There's also a real cultural difference between a lot of tech workers in China. And those in the US, certainly China is in very unique circumstance that many of the entrepreneurs, so we're actually many of the people have had families that have been poor for ten or twenty generations. And they carry the burden of as a single child having to support to parents and grandparents in their future. So it is understandable. Why the work ethic is really incredible while I think. China has some work ethic. Advantages so to speak. It is not the primary thing. China has created an alternate universe. That has completely different ways of starting entrepeneurship systems. Dr Lee's point is that because intellectual property is not well protected in China. It is a very fiercely competitive business environment while here, we may be spending money on defending copyrights trade theft lawsuits over there. Entrepreneurs tech workers are just furiously working to stay ahead of their competitors. Even bigger advantage for Chinese tech companies is they have access to incredible amounts of user data from all of their users within China, we talked about the Chinese app, we chat earlier, imagine a Facebook, Amazon seamless van mot an Uber were all in the same app. That's kind of like we chat. It's a giant repository of data about its users friends. What its users by what they eat where they go. How much money they spend all collected in one place, and that massive data can be turned into smart AI algorithms that provide a better user experience and helps the companies who make those software make even more money. One thing that makes China very different. Of course is the role that the government plays in business. The Chinese government is involved in the tech sector there in all sorts of ways that we would never see in the United States. They provide financing to companies they can help companies build factories in areas where people might be living by demanding that they move. I mean, they can really almost wave their hands and clear the path for these companies to expand or develop or come into being in the first place, the approach, the Chinese government takes is what I call techno utilitarian when the new technology like mobile payment comes out US will tend to debate it and have regulation, and then the products come out in China. Generally, they're allowed to go out while the government watches to see if there issues the government will tend to let new technologies grow faster and not worry as much about protecting the incumbent the crash. Edit cards, the banks, Dr Lee downplays, the Chinese government's involvement, which might have something to do with the fact that the private sector in China where he works and makes his living and the Chinese government are closely intertwined, I would personally believe an an argue that the innovative business model thinking is the primary contribution in China working hard is secondary. And then government is actually lower..
