"Are with a program called America Trends. So we're never more grateful of them. Lincoln get we can get our friend Gerald Salon Tian. He is with trends research. He has got this website trends research dot com. He developed the first global gnomic methodology to identify track forecasting managed trends. He calls himself a political atheist and is unencumbered by political dogma. And he says, there are a few things to watch out for. They have to do with Corona virus and another great Depression jailed. Welcome back to America trends so glad whenever you can have time for us. No, it's great being always. Thanks for having that. So what is going on? What should we look for a really another great depression? I mean, I guess we are in the twenties now, Right? Well, so the roaring 20 twenties? Yeah. We think we're going to have a depression will move into it. By 2031. Excuse me 2021 22 21. So just a few months now? Well, yeah, because we're going they're going to do is going to lower interest rates this year. A couple of times. We think by this time around November will be 202 negative interest rate policy. And they're Ah, There's a global slowdown going on. You just saw growth in in Europe for the last quarter came in at the grand total is 0.1%. This is Germany become country's, so there's a global slowdown in his corona viruses going Tio slow it down even more. Okay, So we just got note of this Corona virus. Just a couple weeks ago we had a doctor in Wuhan, China, who tried to alert us. Several weeks ago. He died just a couple days back after being censured Arrested by China. For trying to put out the notice. You say Corona viruses overhyped despite the World Health Organization, State of emergency What do you have to say about this? Gerald? I look at the numbers and was nearly 1000 people died in China, and when you look at the people that did die, the majority of them are elderly, chronically ill. And is there What do they have 1.4 billion people, and it is worse than the SARS virus. Back in 2003 more people have died at this point. It's a shorter amount of time. So they say it. It spreads more quickly. But it's not his deadly or vice versa. Well again how many people died with the SARS virus 800 in a population of 6.5 billion Peter Point And in America. How many people died last year of the flu, about 61,000 So I'm just looking at the numbers and they don't add up. It looks like I'll tell you what this looks like to me. This looks like a Chinese drill. And the drill is how can they shut down quarantine and control of people like that? That to me, is what more of this is how the Chinese government is taking total control of its country. 1.4 billion people locking it down. I'm locking him out. Anyway. They want to do it so as their global Kaisa global economy goes down and shine is indeed trouble economically, You know, there's a GT debt to GDP ratio. On average, a good a good country was about 70 80. China's over 300 If $40 trillion in debt their economy slowing. China's greatest fear isn't America, Russia or anybody. It's their own people. And when you have a slow down in that country, and people are out of hand when people lose everything and have nothing left to lose, they lose it. To me. This is a China drill on how they could control their country when they need to do it because the numbers again just don't add up to pandemic scale. Well, in fact, we do have we've already had thousands of deaths just in America just in the season from the flu alone, and we hear all these. You could say inconveniences from people. They're stuck on cruise ships they flying to America. You have to be quarantined for days up to 14 days, and when this how long it takes to to tell if someone might have This. What question? Should the mainstream media be asking China the people there every day. We're hearing about them being sprayed down with chemicals in the streets. What? What? What is your eye? From your vantage point Say regarding that. How how Governments control the people. They're doing it everywhere. When something go, they become fascists and dictatorial against spraying down everything. Nobody knows the deadliness of this and from what I'm reading, you know from from the reports in it, this virus is a is one that hurts people that are already chronically ill or elderly and ill. So again. If this shows me how governments could take control like that and run and ruin your life and turn it into a police state in a country near you. Very true. You know, China has gone some decent press because phase one of the big U. S. China trade deal has been completed Face to maybe will happen after the election. Anything more. You want to talk about Karan or the Depression? If not, I will drag you into the impeachment ordeal. Well, the impeachment ideal is wonderful because that had to be one of his stupid, most moronic presidential reality show Siri's I've ever seen in my life. When it happened on in early September. We said two hours subscribes to the trends. Journal. Don't waste one second watching or listening to this because it's going not going to go anywhere. When it gets to the Senate. It has they have to convict him, and they need a 2/3 vote. Understanding. Republicans already control the Senate. There's no way in the world, they're going to get a 2/3 vote. It's a total waste of time. As a matter of fact, this to me ties back into the Corona virus. Let's sell the headline. Let's sell the fear, and by the way to get what's going on on Argentina. You don't have to know the damn thing. What's going on in Chile? Lebanon? Who cares? What about Algeria? Where's that? Oh, well, those stones, those strikes and France. What's a strike? Without the puppet? The plating eggs? 123 They struck out Oh, how bout with Hong Kong? What what's going on around the world? Look what's going on with the new world is never seen anything like this. People told taking to the streets trying to protest and overthrow the government and the American media focuses on one of two stupid issues a week. Friends. You've got to subscribe to transit search dot com. Gerald Celente, He, as he says, they are trying to tell us Look over here, There's stuff going on. But really, it's way over here when we should be paying attention and using our own knowledge and critical thinking, right and about a minute left, But I love to hear how you got into this anyway. Because you say you're a political atheist. I usually do hear you. Speaking. What I think it sounds like truth and I never can really tell. I don't know. The man voted for I thought it for Mr Boogie.

You would be very impressed with yourself data that I could tell you delivering the truth. Are you a citizen? Or are you a subject Because I'm a citizen, and I last whatever question I want to whenever I want to. If your subject you go on and you be a subject, I'm a citizen show. Well, I think that the Chinese have a lot of levers to be against us. But I think the Chinese are kind of shocked because they only elite and I think they're trying to figure I believe that you can say no, There are leads to disagree, But the president is going right directly against the elites in a way to be able to show that the Democrats don't Aren't tough. I think he's trying to distance himself from Biden. Yeah, that's Jim Cramer, by the way, and for these elites in China They who don't They don't believe that they're owned by the Chinese and central government pushed back against that. A Chinese government say something good about Taiwan, for example. And see what happens. And Jim Craner. I'm putting it out there. You know this this this political decision that we need to make in November? I don't think and I don't recall ever looking at A more clear difference. Ah, wider chasm and political philosophy than this very this election's coming up November 3rd. No, it's in essence. Think about it. Who controls you? Who are you going to choose? To control you. Are you going to choose? Who control yourself. In other words, choose Not exactly not completely you controlling you because, yes, there's so many instruments of of politics and government that already go into your pockets and into your bank accounts. Like I said earlier. You know, some people say, and I would save taxation is theft. And it's It's sad that all these property taxes still stand as individuals. We say, Well, I own this land her on this business on this house. Well, really, If you're paying taxes all that you do you really own it. If you having to pay rent. To the governmental entity that you're having to pay taxes, too, on a yearly basis, But can we just keep things where they are right now and not go completely off the cliff when it comes to political decisions, the political culture that we elect into our country? We were making a decision looking just political philosophy here. You're making a decision and you controlling you. A CZ provided right now. And maybe working towards pushing back the tentacles of government in your pocketbook and in your bank account, pushing back against having the opportunity to push back. Or deciding that the state eventually we'll need to control you in every aspect of your life. You know that Daddy Government will protect you. The paternal state will protect you and Look down.

As Trump bans TikTok, some in China turn to Triller

"Big story. This week was a proposed ban. On the insanely popular Chinese APP Tiktok. TIKTOK. It's the APP where young people congregate to watch short funny videos of people, lip synching, and doing silly things. President trump says it's a national security risk because all the information, the data that's mine on Tiktok go straight to the Chinese government. But you know the the data that's mind on facebook go straight to the American government. It's that sort of thing. So for another follow up on the story decided, you know who I should speak to some kids. I spoke to a man named Ben Finer who's twenty seven years old his reaction. Is this really what you're worried about president trump kids making videos online aren't there any more pressing issues. Now. He likes Tiktok because the algorithm is different than on facebook and instagram in. If you do something there, lots of people can see it. It's not this weird algorithm that only some people will see your stuff. He told me he posted a video in one day got a hundred thousand views. That's a lot of us. Talk to other kids who just said it's just this time. Suck you. Once you turn it on from your quarantine, you are just entertained. There is so much fun stuff. This is a time when you can't go out and see your friends and but you can see him on Tiktok. What will people do if Tiktok is indeed bannon goes away which I don't think will ever happen. Well. They told me. They'll just moved to an APP called trailer, which is a tick tock clone. We'll have to see if take a good look at that instagram, which is owned by facebook also came out with their tiktok. Tock clone as well. This week it's called wheels and it lets you make funny short video set to music.

"But I'll know here, you know, the apse been downloaded more than 100 million times and it's really one of the first APS out of China to become A huge global success. But this order it would be fatal for them. So the Trump order also put pressure on an American company to buy Tic Tac and Microsoft is in talks to acquire it, Whereto, where do those talks stand? Yeah, yeah, I mean, the order was seen basically as a way to kind of speed up an acquisition of Tic Tac. And as you mentioned, Microsoft is one of a handful of companies considering buying Tic tac on, I talked to people close to those discussions, and they all say talks are early. There's a lot of work Still, you know, like how many countries would Microsoft control tic tac and wood tick talks. Chinese parent company bite dance, then become a competitor and some of the other markets. What would that look like? So there's a lot that needs to be hashed out. But you know, in the US, there are millions and millions of teens who would just be utterly heartbroken. If TIC Tac disappeared, You know, especially in the pandemic, it's just become a really important place for young people to digitally congregate and share videos of them dancing and cooking and even political activism. It's really become ah, place for young people to do all sorts of things. Right. And so the big question is this tic tac? It's It's been a target in Washington over concerns about ties to China, but are those fears justified? Tick tock collects Justus much data as any up on your phone. The big difference is in its terms of service. So in the fine print, it says it can share that data with its Chinese parent company, And there's absolutely no proof as of now that Tic Tac has given that information over the Chinese authorities and, you know, foreign policy experts and even Some in the intelligence community have examined the TIC tac app and said it doesn't look like it poses a big national security threat that said if the Chinese government wanted data experts have told me they would be able to get it from Tic tac under Chinese law, So yeah, it's possible in theory that China can get its hands on Americans data, but right now there's no direct proof. Showing that's happening and tick talk. For its part, you know, has been bending over backwards to show it is not beholden to China. Its primary servers for US data are based in Virginia. It's even opened up its algorithms for regulators and experts.

The Executive Order To Ban TikTok and WeChat

"He went ahead and did it president trump has signed an executive order to block all transactions with tiktok maker Bite Dance, as well as all transactions with Chinese tech giant tencent beginning on September twentieth. Now, it's worth noting that September twentieth would be five days after Microsoft's deadline to acquire the non-chinese parts of Tiktok or not. Quoting the verge, the spread of APPs controlled by the Chinese government continues to threaten the national security foreign policy and economy of the United States. The order reads the United States must take aggressive action against the owners of Tiktok to protect our national security and quote a parallel order. Banda transactions with we chat a texting APP in China that maintains a small user base in the US in both orders, the president names, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act as authority for the move, as well as the national emergencies act effectively naming talks continued operation within the United States as a national. Emergency such. A move is highly unusual and will likely be subject to a legal challenge. The executive branch has the power to levy sanctions against individuals and corporations by them on the entity list as the US did against Y. and Z., t. e. last year but such sanctions are typically put in place by the Commerce Department rather than the White House and Senate to specific rulemaking procedures that seemed to have been short-circuited by surprise executive order. The president also has the power to force the divestiture of US companies from foreign ownership through the committee on foreign investment in the United States or. But doing so also requires a specific process that seems to have been discarded in favor of a broader executive order. It's unclear how the order will affect talks ability to operate in the short term unlike Weiwei Z. T. The company does not require licenses to operate its network and nothing in the order seems to require APP stores to seize hosting the APP. However, it explicitly covers subsidiaries of by dance specifically, the US based TIKTOK division, and we'll apply to any and all financial transfers to and from those subsidiaries as a result. TIKTOK. Likely to seek a stay of the order in court or be forced to abruptly discontinue services as it takes effect and quote. So everyone basically scrambling to figure out what all this means. There does appear to be a loophole in the order because the order has a clause that reads quote to the extent permitted under applicable law and quote. But also, as Alex, tweeted quote, if I'm reading this correctly, it obliges apple to remove chat from the Chinese APP store, which would effectively kill the company's phone business in China. China represents a little under fifteen percent of Apple's global revenue. But at the same time, the order says we chat quote has over one billion users worldwide, which means it's counting Chinese users as we chat users given the references to chat having more than a billion users. It's clearly intended to apply to the APP globally I. think that would be substantially more damaging for apple in China then losing Google services was for way in the West. I. Think and yet this is the US government doing it to both and quote indeed, Bloomberg has a piece of art that we chat is banned from the Chinese APP store. The ramifications would be huge because we chat is a communication and transaction cornerstone in modern Chinese life. Being without chat would be a big enough deal for Chinese users as to essentially possibly kill the iphone business in China, and at the very least would probably be a big deal as to go to China into some major form of retaliation. Now tencent owns wechat tencent has a market cap of six, hundred, eighty, seven, billion dollars. Its stock was down more than ten percent afterward of this executive order came down. As Dan primack tweeted quote the tencent we chat order maybe more consequential for us tech companies because it seems to ban any transactions with tencent tencent invest in lots of us, companies including fortnight maker EPIC Games. Let's play this out. tencent has an investment in read it tencent can't do transactions after forty five days. So must tencent divest within forty five days if not, how would it ever sell trying to get clarity on this to end quote? Yeah I WANNA put aside the questions as to whether or not Chinese apps represent a security threat for the moment. I for one have uninstalled Tiktok on my phone because I don't trust it. But more immediately, I think most in silicon valley are watching to see if there is. Any immediate cascading of retaliatory actions by the Chinese that could put a cramp in wet silicon valley can do globally. Sources are telling buzzfeed news that an all hands meeting Mark Zuckerberg told facebook employees that banning tiktok would set a bad precedent code I. Just think it's a really bad long-term precedent and that it needs to be handled with the utmost care and gravity whatever the solution Zuckerberg said. I'm really worried. It could very well have long term consequences in other countries around the world and quote. While noted that tick Tock Band in India in June was being hit. Now he alluded to the idea that facebook products could become a target for another country. Later, he did however sympathize with the trump administration's national security concerns. Quote. I. Certainly think that there are valid national security questions about having an APP that has a lot of people's data that follows the rules of another country government that increasingly is kind of seen as a competitor Soccer Berg said quote.

"Not sure he knows ultimately either. Yes, he's taken steps, but I don't know if he knows what the follow through is going to be. Here's what I mean. We're looking at Tic tac. We may be banning Tic tac. We may be doing some other things. They're a couple of options, but a lot of things happening. So we'll see what happens. But way are looking at a lot of alternatives with respected, picked up president on Thursday in vote emergency economic powers to sanction TIC Tac, signing an executive order to ban it's operations here in the U. S unless it is sold to an American company in the next 45 days. But it's unclear if the order will be lifted. If it's sold to any American company or just Microsoft and Microsoft is to company in theory, which is trying to buy it. And does sold mean simply the controlling interest or sold outright. Does it mean just the U? S operations? Or does it mean international operations or the company in totality? It's not clear to me. And also the president signed an order effectively banning we chat, which is a messaging service owned by 10 cent. Ah, company I also mentioned last week Now the administration is still alleging that this is being done for quote unquote national security reasons. But if you know anything about Tech That's a really thin justification. Given Tic Tac is arguably arguably less connected to the Chinese government than the other tech companies. And if you when I say other tech companies, the other Chinese Originating tech companies. And if you just look at what way, which was formed by a former military officer of the Chinese army and member of the Communist Party of China, if you just look at that company alone, You should raise your eyebrow why? The focus is on tic tac and not wall Way and again. Let me remind you, while away is the world's largest manufacturer of telecommunications equipment and second largest manufacturer of smartphones. Now you tell me, which is the greater national security threat. Tic tac O okay, which has more data, a smartphone or a singular app. I got about 180 f's on my smartphone. You tell me Now far, be it from me to defend Tic tac. I am not defending tic tac, but I will always defend common sense. Tic tac doesn't get any love for me and isn't even on my phone. Tic tac is just the latest thing. In the tech world in the AP world and it will cool off just like any other app. You know, they come and they go. They get hot and they cool off. There'll be some other video. AP Tomorrow there'll be some other messaging app tomorrow. But in other tiptop news, there is a new Stupid and dangerous challenge starting to make its rounds well, that's been making its rounds. But it's garnering Mohr news coverage as of late. There is now the Benadryl challenge, and it's not all that complicated. You probably configure it out, ingest more than a dozen Benadryl tablets and watch your head explode. Have a friend recorded even sounds like a lot of fun. And just in case you didn't know the obvious been a drill because it is a pharmaceutical can be extremely harmful in high doses. Imagine that. Not so obvious is that it can cause a high heart rate. Arrhythmias, hallucinations and seizures, and you should be able to extrapolate from that death, Possibly Multiple teams around the country have been hospitalized after this. The Benadryl challenge. This comes on the heels of the nutmeg Challenge, in which TIC tac users drink 2 to 4 tablespoons of nutmeg with milk or water and film their reactions. Allegedly that will get you high, too. I don't know. But for me the only challenge I can remember growing up. Was pop rocks and Coke. If you're too young to know what pop rocks were Googling But for me it was just pop rocks and coke.

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,

When Covid Subsided, Israel Reopened Its Schools. It Didn’t Go Well.

"Since its debut and twenty seventeen, the Chinese APP tick tock has become one of the fastest growing social media tools with more than eight hundred, million active users. The APP lets users make short videos that are often shared across the Internet, but Tiktok isn't all fun games for months. Now, a lot of the attention about the APP has been focused on the national security concerns and the collection of user data, and as a result, the platform has been banned in India, by multiple branches of the US military and by Wells Fargo employees most recently however, president trump took aim at tiktok himself by threatening to ban the APP. We're looking at Tiktok we may be banning TIKTOK. We may be doing some other things, a couple of options, but a lot of things are happening. So we'll see what happens but we are looking at a lot of alternatives with respected dictum. Those remarks were before reports surfaced that Microsoft was pursuing a deal to buy TIKTOK in a press conference at the White House yesterday president trump claimed Microsoft or any other company would have to wait until September fifteen to acquire the APP and would be expected to give a percentage of the profit from the sale to the US Treasury. Joining me now is Graham Webster editor of digit China Project at Stanford University's Cyber Policy Center and a fellow at New America Graham thanks for being with us. Thanks for having me. And Cowan Rosenblatt is a youth and Internet cultural reporter for NBC, News. Dot Com callen thanks for being with us as well. Glad to, be here. Cowen who is the average tiktok user? The average tick tock user really is is a dynamic question because there is a huge range of different people who are using the APP but I'd say the most common person you're gonNA find is someone who is either at the tail end of high school or College who is definitely a solidly in generation the Gen Z. and he was using me APP mostly for fun to do dance challenges trends an engaged with communities that serve to their world. Graham. All of that sounds pretty basic I mean it doesn't sound like there's anything to be concerned about so far what type of data does tiktok collect from its users Graham? We'll TIKTOK is like a lot of social media companies these days It's using an AI driven or machine learning driven algorithm to figure out which content to to individual users. So to get this accomplished, they pay attention to obviously whatever you post that also you know what posts on your feed you look at how long you look at them where your device location is They also tried to track individual users like many apps do by looking at things like screen size and operating system and of course, they have a fair amount of information about your social graph, your your connections to friends and other people that you follow. And so what were some of the concerns around the data collection that way Graham given that it feels like there's a lot of, as you mentioned, other social media platforms and advertisers and the like that are tracking everything that we do already. Why? Why is Tiktok being highlighted here and banned in some of the institutions that we mentioned at the top Well, the basic reason is that tick tock is owned by a Chinese company named Bite Dance and they're a fairly new social media company. They had a breakout a few years ago in China with an APP called junior Tokyo that that is a you know an algorithm, IQ news feed and this is China's first big breakout internationally in terms of social media APPS and really getting take-up in in many different countries around the world not just the United States. So there's A concern that data collected by Tick Tock could end up in the hands of the Chinese company or the Chinese government and wild tick. Tock says that it stores all US user data in the US or in Singapore we don't really have a good way as a society right now to check that type of thing and to make sure that companies commit you when they commit to you know storing data and the Safeway making sure that they're actually doing that. Doesn't sound like we have a lot of that in the United States either though Graham. I mean, we have constant security breaches left and right Right. Well, the United States doesn't have a central data governance or data security or privacy Regulatory System the most prominent example of one globally as Europe, which has the general data protection regulation called the GDP are, and that governs things like when an apper services going to collect your personal information they have to gain certain types of consent and follow certain types of rules and there's also kind of limits the. Idea that if you collect data for a certain reason that you got consent for you shouldn't be able to use it for other reasons and that type of governance is just not that prominent in the US partially because the big US social media companies are not especially keen to have their practices heavily regulated they. They find GDP are in Europe to be burdensome and You know get in the way of making money. Kalland back in June president trump organized a rally in Tulsa Oklahoma and rumor has it that tiktok users promoted buying tickets for the event and didn't show up so that the event would be empty. What do we know about how that rubbed of the administration? So, what we know is it seemed to sort of frustrate the administration. Now, there's no evidence that the Tiktok users and K pop stands who are fans of Korean pop music that they had any impact on turnout. We are going through a global pandemic. There are a lot of factors going on right now. So it is really hard to know sort of what that impact was. But what we do know is it likely inflated expectations for turnout. The administration was planning to have a second rally after the main rally in Tulsa. which they then had to cancel, and so we think that it really messed with them. It was a it was a real genuine troll on the part of these tic TAC users against the president, and it really seemed to rub him the wrong way and there are lots of Tiktok users young first time voters who are telling me that when trump said, he wanted to ban this APP that was a retaliation for what they did the stunt they pulled the prank they pulled in Tulsa most what they think is happening. That's what they think is happening why there is no evidence that that's the president's line of thinking but that's what these eighteen to twenty two year olds are telling me that that's their beliefs. Cowan, we talked about The you know whether or not talk users actually had any effect on the trump rally in Tulsa back in June but more more directly here wondering if you're seeing any more political movement on the APP, whether it's a pro trump or pro biden or anti-trump anti, Biden has it started to move away from dance and song and move towards more political leaning so far. It can do both things at once actually. So there are still the dance trends. There are massive accounts that are just enjoying music on the APP but we see a lot of politics on Tiktok now maybe more than ever some young people are telling me they feel that because their home in quarantine and because politics ramping up nationally as we get closer to this election that they're seeing more and more politics in their feet, and what we're seeing is a not so much pro by content, but a lot of anti-trump content and I WANNA be clear. There is Republican Todd Democrat tiktok liberal Tick Tock conservative Tiktok. But what it appears to be is a lot of generation. Z.. Has a anti-trump sentiment and that does not mean they heavy pro biden sentiment. But things that we see our young people say, Hey, on this day, everyone go to president, trump's campaign store and put these products in your cart. But don't check out because allegedly that messes with their inventory or everyone on this day go to president trump's twitter account and report account, and let's see we can get a taken down. So we're still seeing these sort of organized movements sort of Troll, the president and a lot of discussion of politics but whether or not that is in in favor of vice, President Biden or in favor of president trump is sort of yet to be seen. Graham LE. Let's talk a little bit. But I mean, it sounds like tiktok users are for the most part having fun on the site sort of trying to do the things that Collina's talking about here but. On a more serious note, the trump administration has been trying to ban the APP. They're citing national security concerns, concerns over censorship by the Chinese government. Valid are any of those concerns really given what you know about China US politics Well I think it's you have to separate them out So the the concern about censorship I think is legitimate there was there was an example a little while ago where it looked like some of the censorship that they would do in China restricting conversations about things the Communist Party doesn't like discussed had bled over into the international product Now, Tiktok said that they were addressing that wasn't intended again, we don't really. Have a good way in the United States to check up on that and to kind of make sure that speech isn't being censored one way or the other the national security issue I think requires a lot more imagination Now, you know as was mentioned, the the military has has told service members to not use the APP and I think that makes a good amount a sense you know if if you're concerned about an APP Having links to a potential adversary There's all sorts of possibilities of ways that it could be exploited even just using location data of of service members or people who work in sensitive facilities. But if you don't work in sensitive facilities, if you're just sort of going around and and and doing the fun things and engaging in some of the political discourse that Cowan was mentioning you know there's not. A real big national security issue there a I will say that some people think that collecting the full aggregate totality of US Tiktok users could be used later in a analysis to try to do something, but it's really imaginative at this point whereas I think the censorship concerns a real and could be checked on and data privacy concerns are real but should be able to be checked on as well. What about the fact that we we just heard from Ian Bremmer, the president of the Eurasia Group in the previous segment talking about how the United States is viewed internationally in terms of our response to the corona virus. But I did ask in also about his thoughts on what this Tiktok dust up between president trump and China what seemed to Be Rooted in and he said, you know this is also part of trump's sort of relationship with how he views China and Chinese technology he's gone after while way he's gone you know talked a lot about five G. technologies. So do you see that I mean? Do you see that as a pattern in how the president views technologies specifically that's coming out of China. Yeah I think the you know the trump administration's been. Pursuing a campaign of you know escalating what could be a new type of Cold War approach to China and a lot of it is wrapped up in technology and and I think the focus on Tiktok really makes the most sense. If you consider it a distraction from two things I is a distraction from actual problems with China you know the the trump administration got this phase one trade deal which didn't really get to the deep issues of subsidy and market access and intellectual property protection. And, on the other hand, it's distracting from the fact that a lot of these security concerns should apply across many apps. Why just tick Tock you know you're talking about including American made apps like facebook and twitter. Yeah I mean the concerns are different when the parent company is in China but there are really unaccountable data collection methods going on across ad networks and data brokers are building profiles of Americans and people in other countries that can be purchased just with money and you know it's not only add companies that by this data governments can get it to. Callan, as we sort of touched on this earlier. But of course, we I, say this all the time we're heading into one of the most consequential presedential elections in my lifetime at least social media is constantly changing is tiktok going to be a thing and twenty twenty and November, or is it going to be eclipse with something else or it'll change the? Will it change the election? Calvin what are your thoughts on that? I don't see Tiktok going away anytime soon, as long as the president allows it to operate in the United States I think we're gonNA see more is eight organizing on the APP among young people and I think we're GONNA see. TIKTOK. As long as Microsoft buys it or another company comes in to allow it to operate in the US I think it's going to stick around for a long time. I mean the president did Callan has also asked that Microsoft give money to the Treasury. If it makes this sale, we is anybody else interested in buying tiktok or is it just Microsoft right now? I don't think anyone else has come out as far as I'm aware and said that they are interested in purchasing Tik. Tok I think Microsoft even just recently confirmed that they were interested in this conversation, but it appears a deal needs to be made by September fifteenth. So if someone's going to buy it, it has to happen soon. Well you heard it here I guess I callan Rosenblatt is a youth internet culture reporter for NBC News Dot Com and Graham Webster is the editor of the digit China Project at the Stanford?

"President Donald Trump said he will take action as soon as Saturday to ban TIKTOK for popular chinese-owned video APP that has been a source of national security and censorship concerns. Trump's comments came after published reports that the administration is planning to order China's bite dance to sell tick Tock. There were also reports Friday that software giant Microsoft is in talks to buy the APP. As far as Tik Tok is concerned we are banning them from the United States trump told reporters Friday on Air Force One as he returned from Florida.

US, national security officials of been reviewing the musical dot L. Y. Acquisition in recent months while US armed forces have banned their employees from installing Tiktok on government issued phones.

"That is essential to the cares act they all criticized the Chinese government for lying about the corona viruses that spread throughout the world on Capitol Hill then the viruses elevated the senators and staffers who spent the last few years calling for realignment of Republican politics away from the prerogatives and priorities of corporate America and toward those of middle and working 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

"For the Chinese government could be anything to explain this but the way it's being you I believe the way it's being weaponized is by virtue of the media and I think that it is an effort to bring down trump and one of the ways it's being used to do this just to scare investors to scare people in business to scare people into not buying treasury bills at auction to scare people into leaving cashing out of the stock market and true enough as the show began today the stock market the Dow Jones industrial average was down about nine hundred points supposedly because of the latest news about the spread of the corona virus and if you go deeper into China you will see that all of the high tech Silicon Valley firms are said to be caramel yet suppose they could be suffering a disastrous year why you may not be able to buy a new iPhone of any model this whole year do you know that because the corona virus is so bad that the factories may never open and if they do they may not be anywhere near full capacity so apple may not be able to release no problem you think that's not going to panic investors it most certainly is apple is trying to do what they can to suggest that these rumors are not true they got new products coming this year but but the tech media hates apple a love anti apple stories they love anything and let them report the apples on its last legs course that's not your Warren Buffett came out today said apple is V. best run company ever so this is that he's a big stockholder so people say he's biased about it but the buyers you have to pay attention to is how much money he gets that thirty six billion dollars in apple stock that at that Berkshire Hathaway has they sold a hundred million dollars of apple stock last week all my god he's getting it now is not gonna thirty six billion he sold a hundred million no big deal want to allocate it somewhere else so this is I thank the corona virus is an effort to get trump it's it's it's it's not gonna work it's one of the large latest in a long line of efforts that the drive by media is making this somehow say that trump and capitalism are destroying America and destroying the world just keep in mind where the corona virus came from it came from a country that Bernie Sanders wants to turn the United States in two way mirror image job communist China that's where it came from it didn't come from an American lab didn't escape from an American research lab it hasn't been spread by Americans yeah it starts out in a communist country it's tentacles spread all across the world ends in numbers that are not big and not huge but there be reported is just the opposite just try to keep it all in perspective I'll help you do that along the way we'll take a brief time out come back with the media meltdown over crazy Bernie winning every thing in Las Vegas.

"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..

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..
