"How a Tiny Elections Company Became a Conspiracy Theory Target"
"Just a couple of days ago, October 3rd, The New York Times published an article and investigative report how a tiny elections company became a conspiracy theory target. That's the headline. And goes on to talk about election deniers. I'm just going to read a few lines because it'll give you a very familiar flavor of the kind of rhetoric we've been hearing now for almost two years in this country. A group of election deniers unspooled a new conspiracy theory about the 2020 presidential outcome. Continuing using thread bear evidence or none at all, the group suggested that an election company conic had secret ties to the Chinese Communist Party that had given the Chinese government backdoor access to personal data about 2 million poll workers in the United States. Now interestingly, what group are they talking about that is spreading these conspiracies and election lies, true the vote. Yes, true the vote. Now this is not material covered directly in 2000 meals, but true the vote has been doing this work for now. I believe about a year. And they disclosed it in a series of events, notably something called the pit, a kind of public event online in which they talked about their research into this company conic and the basic idea here is this. These election companies and let's back up for a moment. We have been assured now by the left for the longest time. Regardless of what you think about mules, the simple fact is machines are secure. The simple fact of it is that software is secure. No problems whatsoever. None at all, most secure election history. This is all very familiar territory. And so when true the vote came out, they basically said that this election company clinic. Has collected a great deal of very specific and personal information. We're not just talking about the names of poll workers, but who they are, so in some cases, the identities of family members, phone numbers, addresses, or where they live, all this data is being stored on Chinese servers
Nancy Pelosi's Delegation Departs D.C. With Fighter Jet Support
"You care? If Nancy Pelosi goes to Taiwan. You know, the Chinese government has made it pretty clear. That if Nancy Pelosi goes to Taiwan, there's going to be some consequences. Now, a buddy of mine in the Washington D.C. area does a local TV show there. My friend's Armstrong Williams, for those of you in the D.C. area who might know of Armstrong. Armstrong since he and I, in turn, in senator Strom Thurmond's office, many, many years ago, Armstrong posted some video on Instagram, showing what was supposedly Nancy Pelosi's delegation leaving the D.C. area. And it was quite the showing. There was this huge, some type of U.S. Army airplane, it was a monstrous airplane, had several fighter jets, next to it, and then the next plane behind it was supposedly the one that Nancy Pelosi was in, again, accompanied by, I don't know, 6 8 other fighter jets. And obviously that is needed, I guess, I suppose, because of this threat, from China.
Thomas Friedman: Nancy Pelosi Should Stay Home, Not Go to Taiwan
"Thomas Friedman is in my view a show for the communist Chinese and why not He's a wealthy man through marriage who lives in Maryland Maryland wants to be very much like the communist Chinese government But there you have it And free men and just so you know the Roberts who is the chief justice may have heard it the couples are very very close Tommy and Johnny And their wives are very very tight I thought you would want to know that In so Freeman is asked you know this Pelosi going to Taiwan and all What do you think about that Cut 14 go So what do you tell Nancy Pelosi then A lot of folks that apparently according to The New York Times our paper saying that inside The White House are very concerned about her going over there Just stay home This whole trip is completely out of context Eyes on the prize The prize is Ukraine defeating Russia China is helping us do that right now Did you know China is helping us defeat Russia right now Just staying home Nancy capitulate
Biden, Xi to hold talks amid new tensions over Taiwan
"Renewed tension over Taiwan will likely be part of president Joe Biden's coming call with Chinese president Xi Jinping A U.S. official says President Biden will talk with China's president Xi Jinping on Thursday The plan call comes amid word that House speaker Nancy Pelosi could soon visit Taiwan The Chinese government has already warned of forceful measures should Pelosi visit the self ruled island that China claims as part of its territory Last week Biden told reporters U.S. Military officials believed it was not a good idea for the speaker to travel to Taiwan at the moment The plan talked between Biden and she will be the 5th in a series of regular check ins and has been in the works for weeks Tim McGuire Washington
Are China and Russia Still Allies?
"Russia and China actually not natural allies. They're both totalitarian dictatorships that want to try and reconquer lands that they believe are ethnically theirs. Now, Russia is no friend of the United States, but it doesn't have to be a bitter enemy. Russia very well should be in the neutral category the same way that we used Russian power to defeat the Nazis. We should use Russian power to defeat the Chinese. The Chinese Communist Party and Russia, they're playing nice together, but they're not natural allies. You should always try to be dividing them apart from each other. Now, I believe that we must make the Chinese Communist Party and the Chinese government, the clear and total enemy of the United States government. That's where we need to focus our attention in our time. Not on Russia, but instead the country that has well over a billion people, a growing economy, they're ruthless to the core and they are really quite honestly ahead of pace in world domination. We have pushed Russia into closer CCP orbit due to bad Ukraine policy.
Biden Family Grifters Sold Joe's Influence to Chinese Government
"It's about influence peddling. It's about the Biden family, shamelessly. Enriching themselves with China spending millions and millions of dollars. Here we are selling our oil reserves to China. You think the big guy doesn't know about that? I mean, if a tenth of this crap is true, the Biden family not only are they a bunch of grifters, but they're compromised. Biden is compromised. He took his son over to China on air force two. And Hunter Biden is wheeling and dealing, if you see the numbers that Hunter Biden made, we're not talking a few million here. We're talking tens of millions of dollars. That the Biden family, this, what about this uncle Joe? Our uncle Jim rather, Jim Biden, Joe Biden's brother. The family had their handout, this is like a lifetime TV movie. The grifters, these opportunistic, I have to say it. Low class low rent grifters trying to enrich their bank accounts by shelling Joe Biden's influence. To the Chinese government, it's unreal. And of course, the mainstream media isn't going to touch it. The mainstream media is cover is, well, it's social salacious. I mean, it's too bad. Poor hunter has a drug problem. Hunter is troubled. He's disturbed. Yeah, there he is, naked in the drug rehab smoke and crack. It's really, that's their cover.

Understanding the Importants of Taiwan
"I have a couple of questions for you because I'm not an expert on foreign policy and it's just doesn't sound right when president Joe Biden goes out and says he's going to defend Taiwan militarily. It seems inconsistent with what we would normally do. Obviously we would help fund them and their military action, but I want you to explain it to the audience because is this a bad thing that President Biden said this or is he right on track with his comments? Yeah, it's a great question. And so I was in the military for 25 years. And after that, I've been doing foreign policy national security heritage for almost 20 years. And been all over the world, talk to people all over the world in the Taiwan before. So here's the reality. This is the cold reality. And this is actually been true since the 1950s. Since Dwight Eisenhower was the president of the United States. The reality is the United States would fight to keep China from taking over Taiwan. And here's why. Taiwan is the key island in what's called the first island chain. If the Chinese government controlled everything from Taiwan down to the South China seas, essentially they could deny the United States access to the entire Asian continent.
Phelim McAleer Describes His Film 'My Son Hunter'
"For those people listening who are not familiar with the film that you and Ann are making, tell us what is this film because you've been on the show, but not everybody listens to the show every day. My son hunter is the film. It's about Hunter Biden's dodgy dealings. I say it's part Austin Powers, parts on the carrier part House of Cards. It's about Hunter Biden's dodgy dealings. It's about Joe Biden's dodgy dealings. It's an absurdist romp through Hunter Biden's drug adult past and possibly present. And it's true. It's true. I mean, the best source of a lot of it is hunker Biden's autobiography, where he talks about, I mean, this is a guy who says, I had to leave the board meeting of burisma every 20 minutes to take a crack hit, you know, to get some crack in my system. This guy was getting paid $83,000 a month by burisma for four years. He was paid millions of dollars. He was part of a $1.2 billion fund. By the Chinese government, he was getting money from the former mayor of Moscow's ex-wife, 3.5 million, he was money was just flowing in from these foreign sources, and he has emails. Joe Biden is called in for 10%. Joe Biden has come in for 50%. These are facts. So anyway, but that's the fact. Not anyway. I want to be very clear. So in case anybody's driving in their half listening, this is true and fail them an Ann a journalist and they're making a film about this. A movie. Whatever the difference is. Filming a movie. Stop it. This is what happens to me like I always put into the room. But my question is, you're making, you're making a movie. Okay, but the point is it's true. And it's about the biggest story there is. We're talking about corruption. In The White House, corruption at the highest level with our foreign enemies. Everyone ought to be clamoring to cover this and as we know, it's crickets. That's how you know we're living in truly mad times.
Peter Schweizer: Interior Secretary Husband's Tied to Communist China
"The problem is her husband Andrew Moffat is an investor and a major stakeholder in a company called path AI and here's the thing Mark the commerce secretary's husband's company their biggest investor is a Chinese equity firm called Dan hua capital which happens to be linked to the Chinese government So we thought this is really interesting Is this affecting perhaps in some way the decision she's making and lo and behold you look at the things that she's doing and saying she's done a couple of favors for Huawei the Chinese telecom company that 7 countries including our country says is linked to the Chinese intelligence service She's literally giving away concessions that the Trump administration is secured from China She's giving it away for their benefit and I think that's directly tied to the facts that her family's financial fortunes are linked now to the Chinese government That is unbelievable And of course as long as the Democrats control both houses of Congress they're never going to look into any of this are they That's right That's right It's really troubling that you can not find anybody in the Democratic Party that wants to take a simple honest look at some really basic questions like how Hunter Biden got these deals How treasury sorry commerce secretary raimondo's husband got this money They don't want to look at these deals Corruption which used to be an issue that people tried to look at in a nonpartisan way has become partisan as well And it's to our country's great detriment
Federal Investigation of Hunter Biden Heats Up
"So you have The Washington Post coming out saying the laptop is true. Miranda divine to her great credit led with the story with the article laptop from hell. The New York Post published it and they lost their Twitter account for even talking about it. And now you're starting to see in mainstream regime media pretty extensive coverage about a an indictment that might be looming because of a very serious and real federal investigation against Hunter Biden. This is CNN play cut 42. Well, Brianna, this is a very real, very substantial investigation of potentially serious federal crimes. We are seeing federal prosecutors in Delaware. Do exactly what you would expect to see federal prosecutors doing this situation. They're talking to witnesses, they're bringing people into the grand jury. They're issuing subpoenas. And I would expect, as Evan reported, they're now gaining steam and they need to make a decision, I think, in the at least intermediate future. In this case has been going on for four years and there is a realistic chance this could result in federal charges. Of course, then we be in unprecedented political territory, not legal territory, but a situation of having potentially the Justice Department prosecuting and trying to imprison the son of the president. And look, it's not like Hunter Biden is being investigated for doing something completely unrelated from his father. It's not like they're investigating Hunter Biden for not paying taxes because he's a sports star for the Lakers or for the New York rangers. Now this is because a business dealings he was doing with his father for his father and because his father who was who he was. The federalist dot com kind of summarizes some of truck grassley's findings, as chuck grassley and Ron Johnson have been on the story for years now and smeared at every single turn by the activist media but turns out they were totally right and completely on the Mark. Meanwhile, the activist press was not, according to the documents obtained by the senators, energy company CEFC, and an official arm of the Chinese government paid, Hunter Biden $100,000 cash further credit to a wasco, hunter's firm. There's no middle man in this transaction. This is a $100,000 wire transfer from what is effectively an arm of the Chinese government directly to Hunter
Tony Bobulinski Exposed Biden's Business Dealings in October 2020
"Flashback October of 2020 Here is Biden's business partner Tony bob balinsky giving a speech He is a business partner of hunter Jim Biden and Joe Biden talking about how we met Joe Biden How he was referred to are the best the big guy and a Chinese company associated with the Chinese government was going to pay 10% to the big guy Remember this one Check this out On May 2nd 2017 the night before Joe Biden was to appear at the milk and conference I was introduced to Joe Biden by Jim Biden and Hunter Biden At approximately at my approximately hour long meeting with Joe that night we discussed the bidens history the Biden's family business plans with the Chinese with which he was plainly familiar at least at a high level After that meeting I had numerous communications with hunter walker gillier and Jim Biden Regarding the allocation of the equity ownership of May 13th 2017 I received an email concerning allocation of equity which says 10% held by H for the big guy In that email there's no question that H stands for hunter big guy for his father Joe Biden And Jim for Jim Biden In fact hunter often referred to his father as the big guy or my chairman I can't believe I have never in what 15 years of my life working in the law enforcement space I have never seen a case so open and shut with such conclusive evidence of suspect shady criminal activity than

China Censors Ukraine; Surgeon General Censors COVID 'Misinformation'
"I told you before the break how I got an email from the email morning blast from axios this morning and they're one big thing story was China's censors Ukraine Apparently the Chinese government doesn't want any pro Ukrainian messages getting out there because they're tyrants and they want to make you to believe we want to make you believe that there's this large and growing support for Russia and that the Ukrainians are evil awful people for fighting for their freedom So they're censoring it Which I thought is super weird Because the Surgeon General of the United States just did the exact same thing with regards to COVID policy here and yet people like axios the cat lady Politico and others never seemed to make the connection The Surgeon General of the United States in name only the sagano Vivek Murthy had just put out an edict demanding that big tech companies produce to him He's the Surgeon General He's not George Patton like a four star general or 5 surgeon He is a Surgeon General And he's demanding big tech companies produce them information about COVID misinformation online And when they say misinformation what they mean is anything that doesn't align 100% with their already false narratives about COVID
China's Mixed Messages on Russia Invasion
"This morning about China's reaction to this. We've got maybe about a minute and a half here, Josh. Tell us a little bit about what you're seeing out of China as well. And what it means, what it doesn't mean, maybe, for what Vladimir Putin is doing. Right. Well, the Chinese government's reaction has been all over the map to be clear. There are four Ukraine sovereignty, but there are four Russia's grievances and they're also for diplomacy, but they're also supporting the idea of the invasion. So it doesn't make any sense on its face. So that's where Chinese foreign policy is right now. It's essentially a set of lies and strong men. And I don't say that lightly. If they want to have a foreign policy that's based on sovereignty and territorial integrity, then they would stand up to an invasion of Ukraine. And they're not doing it. And when they look at Taiwan, they don't see Ukraine because they don't think of Taiwan as another country. They think of it as their territory, but it's not exact parallel. So this is torn the Chinese up in knots. They don't really know what to do, but in their flailing what we've learned is that what they say is not what they mean. And that in the end, all of their principles will fold when they're put to a choice between supporting their thuggish ally Vladimir Putin, which is essentially where they've fallen down. And this is exactly

'Red-Handed' Author Peter Schweizer on China's Leninist System
"I'm back with author Peter Schweitzer, the new bestseller, red handed, how American elites get rich helping China win. Peter, one thing that struck me about the book is, you know, you have people who might habitually say, well, listen, you know, China has moved from a socialist to a capitalist economy. True, it's a state directed capitalism, but it's capitalism all the same. What's the big deal of doing commerce with China? But you're not talking about mere trade back and forth and which is in which the normal rules of comparative advantage apply, it seems to me you're talking about the Chinese government having a long-standing policy of corrupting politicians by sweetening their pockets in the hope and expectation that these politicians will then do the bidding of China. Isn't that the core argument you're making here? Yeah, no, I think this is a vitally important point for people to understand. China's not a Marxist Leninist system. It's a Leninist system. So yeah, you have capitalism, but it's state directed capitalism. And what we're talking about here is not, you know, wanting to import potato chips or export potato chips to China. What we're talking about here is getting access to critical Chinese industries, being able to invest in certain companies and certain industries that are restricted and sweetheart deals where it's really not at all merit based. It's not based on some competition. It's based on the Chinese government deciding to enrich a politician and their
Pelosi Urges Olympic Athletes Against Angering the Chinese Government
"Nancy Pelosi has some comments here about the Olympics. Now, I don't defend Nancy Pelosi. But I think that it's actually a little bit unfair to attack her for what she said here. Minorly unfair. I think some of the criticisms towards Pelosi here have not been totally wise and I'm gonna tell you why. Okay, so Nancy Pelosi tells U.S. athletes not to speak out against the Chinese communist regime, lest they risk incurring the anger of the Chinese government. Now, she's being called a shill in the pup of the Chinese Communist Party. That's right, but I'll be very honest with you. If I was sending athletes to China, I'd be telling them the exact same thing. Unless you want them to end up as hostages like LaMelo Ball was. You gotta tell them what they're getting in for. I'm not a fan of trying. I think China is an existential enemy. So play cut 79. I would say to athletes, you're there to compete, do not risk, incurring the anger of the Chinese government, because they are ruthless. I know there is a temptation on the part of some to speak out while they are there. I respect that, but I also worry about what the Chinese government might do to their reputations to them families. Now, here's the way it should be done. Okay? First of all, why Pelosi's commenting on this? I don't get that. Is Biden should say, listen. I have given every athlete from America a green light to speak as you choose China, you lay a hand on them, you got a problem. 200% tariffs. China's now a free speech zone. Welcome to the party. That has to come from the president, not from Pelosi, I'm saying if I was just like a House of Representatives and I were like Pelosi, she's actually not wrong. That's not the point. The point is that Trump or Biden whoever was president should say, okay, we're going to go compete in your COVID zero games, you lay a hand on an American, you are not getting a product into America for a year. It's that simple. Will Rockwell rec your economy.

Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi, on the athletes, the Americans going to Beijing. Got to. But the Chinese government works desperately to cover up their abuses, rewriting history and projecting a very different image to the world. I would say to our athletes, you're there to compete, do not risk, incurring the anger of the Chinese government, because they are ruthless. I know there is a temptation on the part of some to speak out while they are there. I respect that, but I also worry about what the Chinese government might do to their reputations to their families. What about our reputation, John, when the Speaker of the House says that? Well, this is the problem. This was never about we're not doing a genocide. Of course we know we're doing a genocide. The whole scam here is nobody can look us in the eye and attack us for that. And what Pelosi just oh, we can't say anything to the Chinese because they're big and mad and scary. That's empowering and that's in terms of strategic risk. That's the biggest problem with the game. We're telling the Chinese, there's no accountability for bullying everybody else. And the one thing I would really point to is the shameless smug reporting of NBC, which pretends to say, oh, we are going to address these issues head on. And they'll say, China genocide. And then they'll say, oh yeah, but the Chinese say they're not having a genocide. How could there be two sides to a genocide story? And on so many of these issues where they say, well, the critics say this and then they say, and the Chinese deny that, but many of these issues are things that are not, he said she said there is undeniable factual evidence that the Chinese are

"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.

"More of an impact in arctic regions. But what happens in Arctic areas doesn't just stay there. That's because melting at the polls leads to higher sea levels everywhere. China may be the biggest greenhouse gas emitter in the world. The U. S is still the largest on a per capita basis. But China is also the forefront of renewable energy innovation and also has some of the world's largest conservation projects. Beijing is trying to get to net zero carbon emissions by the year 2060. That means contributing no additional greenhouse gasses to the atmosphere. You've alias, studying just how China could get there. He's an environmental researcher at New York University, Shanghai and the author of the recent book China Goes Green. If in your book you Talk about China's ambitious goals envision an ecological civilization. How would you describe what's at the heart of the Chinese government's vision and goals for 2060? The Chinese government is seeing and using this term ecological civilization as a national strategy, and and they're doing this to really describe the Chinese Communist Party. As an actor that tries to restore China back to its former glory. So the official history that a Communist Party has been teaching its people and has been paddling in official history. Ah, graffiti is that China had a glorious past, and it's not just any kind of glory, not just any kind of civilization, a leader The Chinese Communist Party sees itself is building a uniquely ecological kind of civilization. A leadership for the world ecological civilization does sound like a noble goal. But you also described China's green ambitions as coercive environmentalism. Explain that The idea being that if the goal of environmental protection is noble enough, an important enough, and perhaps we can use that gold to justify the means of authoritarianism. In other words, using authoritarians approaches to accomplish environmental protection goes What the Chinese government seems to be doing systematically at home and overseas is using environmental protection to accomplish authoritarians ends right. Well in your book to get specific, Geetha you describe how the Chinese government has used the pretense. Of environmentalism to exert control over communities. Give us some examples of that. Very much. So we're seeing the Chinese government using, for example, facial recognition technologies to control how citizens sort their garbage and recycle under the pretense of a national park initiative or conservation program. They are systematically relocating ethnic minority groups to create new national parks on what China cost the belt and road initiative. The Chinese government is pursuing a lot of government to government deals once again in the name of environmental protection, But these projects turned out to be categorically insensitive. Dissenting voices received the Chinese government using environmental protection as a reason to intensify trade manipulation. So does this model work either and service to the environment or to human or civil rights? Success of China's brand of state led environmentalism doesn't depend on a strong state, and in fact, the success depends on mechanisms that place Chinese state power in check. We see successful moments of Chinese coercive environmentalism when the state is open. To public inputs from all sorts of non state channels. To give you an example, the Chinese government developed to this interesting app, which everybody can download that's called black and smelly waters. Now through this app, the local authorities are getting inputs from the public. When they see a polluted body of water. They snap a picture and send them to the government through this app. In the government, then send their inspectors. What really can help the Chinese government achieved long term in from you know success is opening up the Chinese state to input from various walks of the society..

Since I'm the only one seeming to cry out how ridiculous this is that we look at the Chinese government and believe that these numbers are accurate. First of all, one of the things they talked about is manufacturing industrial production. Here's the problem with that. The problem is very simple. Every economy pretty much in the world is in deep, deep trouble on the verge of recession. Unemployment globally is extremely high. There aren't a lot of consumers buying a lot of things. For their industrial manufacturing production to be high in maybe, but that means that the other thing that is high would be the number of shipping containers that are stacking up on their ports because it's hard to believe that a country that is.

president trump to run against well you know it's funny I've been thinking a lot about this I mean I think you know bring it up let's let's have a real debate in this country about two diametrically opposite couch do we go with socialism slash communism or do we go with the free enterprise system and let the American people decide let's not but yeah big old white color differences between these two parties sell and you know what I appeared that I kind of admire Bernie Sanders because at least he's being honest about what he wants to do it's called American Eagle we're gonna socialized medicine government can take over the healthcare system we're gonna have a lot you know that the government's going to get rid of every day an old form of energy we have that works on the counter and other we use when it's all of our gonna give all this free stuff for people and you're gonna be able to forgive your student loans and and a lot of people decide what do you think I think you're absolutely right and that's what we need in this country the problem is the Democrats have wanted this all along they're not brave enough to say it in public this what they've been trying to do for many years Bernie Sanders as you mention he has been strongly saying this since twenty fifteen when he ran for president the first time I got screwed out of it by Hillary Clinton and he's got a lot of supporters out there he's got a good still has a great grassroots grassroots movement out there all the same yeah it's amazing but it's very sad to me I mean when you're is if you know I saw this poll the other day something like seventy percent of Democrats would go for socialism yeah that's me I mean what is wrong with our education system in this country that these kids you have to spend a hundred thousand dollars educating these kids in the end young people it's where the name thank socialism is superior to the goose that laid back bags which is our free enterprise system I'm even more surprised about there in the bay area where you guys out where the you know it seems like you know that's only three rational people I know and all bay area right there in the you and Katie and sure

can't understand that because you have to know you know the steeple are you know my my plan right which is that the and the young person who wants to vote for socialism thinks we need more but we send them a one way ticket to Caracas Venezuela and that they can find you know two weeks or a semester there and then they can come back and tell us what they think about I mean because it's so interesting to me proud every time I give talks on college campuses and I talk a lot about socialism versus you know capitalism it and the ones that people come up to me after my talks tend to be the students who were born somewhere else outside the United States people born in Hungary or Poland or Cuba or Venezuela or you know some of these you know western socialist countries at and they say you know I love it Poland I left Cuba or left East Germany because I wanted freedom and now I come to the United States and all these crazy Americans want you know the government takes take over the healthcare system or the dead this is about you know and and they don't understand that because Americans sometimes we don't appreciate how important the freedoms we have why would we want to give more power to the government to do anything everything exactly right we want to write absolutely I look out the the Democrats can't even run a crock caucus properly in Iowa you know that you know what

thank you Iran is a country that it's hard to cover for journalists on the ground because the government doesn't much like letting foreign reporters in when it does they need a strict visa which usually only lasts for a week while reporters are that that strictly shadowed by the authorities but Nicholas Pelham who's the Middle East correspondent for the economist magazine had the luxury of spending seven weeks in Iran only it wasn't quite luxury he managed it by getting arrested and although he was released after a few days he still wasn't allowed to leave the country he's been telling me about his unusual experiences that it sounds a bit of a cliche but I think I would use the words liberation in captivity that is a genuine the tension in captivity for the first three days or so I was stopped from traveling this house having out to the apple and told her that this could be under investigation for up to forty eight hours a Muslim for was to end the call for us to the apple X. where I was interrogated and then plan fills put on me has taken to a detention center and I hope that for about a day and after that put in a safe house for another two to three days and then remarks being told that Mike conditions are going to be upgraded as can be put into a hotel and I was free to roam around the city but would have to be available for questioning my studies of the started this he must've thought goodness this is really bad it's a strange sensation everything happens so quickly and in itself no individual instant it's not allow me why do you think the government in Tehran

seems quite internally divided over to finance a government that was saying different things the context probably is important this is at a time of heightened tensions between and their own person that sees an old tank Iran then sees a little time because of it so you and I may have been caught up in that sort of pass struggle between the two countries but nobody ever it explained why I was
