"Several months ago I had an episode called. Welcome your loneliness, that's episode one hundred fourteen, and in it I shared a little bit about some of the loneliness. I've been feeling at the end of last year, and at the beginning of this year, specifically as it related to my work I wasn't actually planning to share publicly at all about my experience with loneliness for several reasons. I it can be uncomfortable to talk about particularly when from the outside. There may not seem to be a lot of logical reasons why I was feeling lonely and happily married I have lots of wonderful friends, a supportive family colleagues I enjoy working with what gives Crimea River Emily. Nobody wants to hear that you're feeling a little bit lonely. At least that's what I told myself. Another reason why I didn't plan to talk about. It was because I've experienced waves of this kind of loneliness for decades, and there wasn't necessarily anything remarkable about this particular time I've remained private about it in the past and got through just fine. This time would be different. Except this time was different. Because, this time of loneliness coincided with the beginning of new, year and one word that I've been circling around for twenty twenty. Was the word welcome? It's a kind word and I couldn't let go of it as I thought about the year ahead I held onto that word because I wanted to remember to be open to new things, new invitations and new collaborations, I wanted to be a welcoming presence for new experiences and for opportunities, even if maybe they felt a little bit scary. But it wasn't only opening myself up to the good things. In fact, this word welcome came to me during a conversation with my spiritual director, as I shared with her about some fear, anxiety had been experiencing, and she invited me to become a better hostess. Even unwanted circumstances I was curious about what it would look like to have more welcoming posture as it related to anxiety. Which I realize, might I? I sound counterintuitive, but the more I learn about anxiety and worry the more I'm realizing what the experts say is true. The few try to push anxiety away? It only makes it worse, but when I welcome it or at least acknowledge its presence in the room. I have a better chance of knowing what to do next rather than spending all of my energy trying to get rid of the fear. Elizabeth Gilbert says something I quote often from her book big magic. She says you're fear is allowed in the car. It's going to be there anyway, so it's not even a question of whether or not. It's allowed. You can't get rid of it, but it doesn't get to drive. Let your fear. Ride Shotgun. I love that image of our fear riding shotgun. We waste our efforts. If we try to kick it out of the car instead welcome it, but don't let it take the wheel. well as I already mentioned, the beginning of the year brought a wave of loneliness I haven't experienced in a long time of course little. Did any of US know that this entire year would bring a level of cultural loneliness that we have never experienced before? But that's a conversation for another day, so I came into this new year holding onto this idea of being a welcoming presence and being open to what might come and to welcome it. Q. Foreshadowing music. Will during the season of loneliness, I reached out to my longtime friend Anne. When I first met Anne downs, it was over ten years ago and to be honest. I approached her with a little bit of caution is not because I didn't trust her, but because I really wanted to be her friend by wasn't sure. How here was the woman who I had a lot in common with? We both love. Jesus we both were trying to get our first book published. We both had a passion. Passion to serve teenage girls. We were both contributors for the same online blog at that time, but for all the ways we were similar, we were also super different. Anti got energy from being with people, and I got energy from being by myself. Any seemed perfectly comfortable, surrounded by laughter and lots of activity and fun and I like to watch people from a safe distance and make up stories inside my head. Anne is right on the outside and I brewed on the inside. If you know anything about the, she's seven and I'm a four and again. That's a conversation for another day. But it didn't take long before any, and I became true. Friends mostly impart. To her, inviting to our house for the weekend and me being smart enough to say yes. Our whole family promptly fell in love with her and the stories you've heard told about any remained true to this day to know her is to love her. So! We've been friends for over ten years and in that time we've had some adventures. We went on tour together once and by that I actually mean. She went on Tour for many shows as a speaker and I joined her for two of those shows we shared a book, released a back in twenty twelve. Her Book for teenage girls came out on the same day that my book for teenage girls came out. We've traveled together around. The world celebrated business and Personal Wins and grieved some losses, too. I met her because of the Internet, but our friendship goes way beyond the screen.

Russia's plans for Crimea were long in the making
"What America has officially calling a Russian invasion of Ukraine Russian troops reading out throughout the strategic Crimean Peninsula before we get into how such a stop might occur. Let's take a look at why a theory circulating for Awhile has held that Putin sees the annexation of Belarus as a means for extending his tenure in the Kremlin under constitutional term limits. He has to stand down in two thousand and twenty four but those of course are the constitutional term limits of Russia a new country the Republic of Russia and Belarus. Perhaps would have a new constitution. Which might will be less concerned with such niceties however more recent shenanigans suggests that Putin is pursuing other means of installing himself as president for life though he may also be keeping in mind that he will timed unsuccessful. War rarely hurts and incumbent and or Russia's coveting of Belarus might be an expression of Russia's eternal and deep seated desire to put distance between itself and its enemies actual or imaginary and maintain what Moscow still sees as its rightful dominion Russia's recent incursions into Georgia and Ukraine have been obvious enough endeavors to keep those countries out of the wests orbit and more importantly out of NATO. She wouldn't yep criteria today. The hysterics need to stop and the Cold War rhetoric needs to be rejected and the obvious thing admitted. Russia is an independent active participant on the international sane like other countries it has international interests. That should be considered and respected important. When you look at you when you still there is also and it can never be holy discounted. The fact that much of Russia's foreign policy appears currently to revolve around just annoying everyone else for the sake of it inflaming. Russia's concerns about Belarus a recent indications that Russia can no longer take Belarus or its president for granted. Lushenko who is as his name suggests of Ukrainian descent refused to recognize Russia's annexation of Crimea. In two thousand fourteen and has been quite supportive of Ukraine generally. He has resisted Russia's pressure for close ties even as Russia has squeezed energy supplies to Belarus. He has reached out to the West. He has hitherto disdained sourcing oil from Norway and hosting. Us Secretary of State. Mike pompeo in Minsk it advocates wanted to help Belarus built its own sovereign country our energy producers stand ready to deliver one hundred percent of the oil. You need a competitive prices. The biggest energy producer in the world. And all you have to do is call us. We can't be part of some of the country. Lukashenko told his people last month. I can't betray you and dissolve Belarus even into brotherly Russia. If I agree to US Belarussians would eat me alive within a year. It might be tempting to interpret this. As pre election flag-waving Lukashenko will be seeking a sixth term in August. Were it not? For the fact that Belarusian elections tend toward the predictable indeed since independence in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety. One Belarus has not held a presidential election which Lukashenko has not won and often by these sorts of margins which have regrettably prompted suspicions among some petty fogging. Cynics that the results have had a certain preordained. Quality as for how a Russia this as Bellarusse conflict might unfurl. We've pretty much gotten the idea. From Russia's other recent military adventures they would be perhaps grim muttering about oppression of an ethnically Russian and all Russian speaking population which is about eight percent of Belarus and as recently as Monday Eagle Miroslav. A member of the upper chamber of Russia's parliament the Duma felt it necessary to pronounce upon a Social Media Storm which followed a dispute in Minsk cafe between a Belarusian speaking customer anti Russian Speaking Server balaclava-clad gentlemen in unbudged. Uniforms may arrive from somewhere. Certainly not Russia obviously in unmarked trucks and armored vehicles accompanied by smoking denials from Moscow. Nope nothing to do with us. Never seen these people or their russian-made weapons before. Probably just some lads on a stag do at Cetera. At which point as in Georgia and as in Ukraine Russia will have stick in Belarus's side which it can prod twist or pretend to withdraw as it sees necessary. Russia may also calculate that the West would be unlikely to risk much to ride to the rescue of an obdurate autocrat like Lukashenko. This might not be likely exactly but especially if one bets with form. It's not exactly unlikely either. That
Senate report details Obama administration's response to Russian interference
"Frozen by paralysis of analysis hamstrung by constraints both real and perceived that's how the chairman of the Senate intelligence committee describes the Obama administration's response to Russian interference in the twenty sixteen election in a statement Republican senator Richard Burr says president Obama's national security team debated courses of action without truly taking one Bure was commenting on the latest installment in his committee's long awaited report on Russian efforts to disrupt the presidential election four years ago I'm joined now by the vice chair of the Senate intelligence committee mark Warner of Virginia senator welcome thank you for him do you agree with that statement that the Obama team was was paralyzed well I think there are clearly lessons learned and I and I think the Obama administration with the benefit of hindsight should have acted more aggressively but let's face it I think our whole government our intelligence community writ large our law enforcement community were caught off guard I think there was such an abundance of caution shown by the Obama administration that this might politicize an already very political time in retrospect you we have to realize these kind of threats are ongoing and that when we see evidence of foreign intervention the president the administration needs to be more forward leaning did to put Americans on notice to be be wearing be on guard let me push on that the the point you're making that that this good but that the Obama administration was caught off guard that they were worried about politicizing an already very political moment but how much of a parent should they be given there this is the job of the national security team to balance competing factors to look out for national security even in an election year well again I think we have never seen this level of coordinated attack from an adversary in in the midst of our elections to happen not only into the DNC but a series of senior Clinton official like John Paston others and then selectively weaponize at information on how they dribbled out over a period of time now you could say if we'd done a little more homework and looked at what Russia done in Ukraine what Russia done previously in the Baltic states we should have been more aware I think at the same time the administration on one hand was looking at what Russia was doing on the geo political basis where we had Russian actions in Crimea but that kind of geo political analysis was totally separate from the Russian cyber and misinformation disinformation effort the point of doing a report like this is to avoid a similar situation going forward how confident should we be that the problems your report identifies have been fixed I wish I could say I was a hundred percent confident I wish I could say point two broad bi partisan legislation that had been passed I've gotten bipartisan legislation that would make explicitly clear that if a foreign government tries to intervene the appropriate response is not to say thank you but to actually reported to the FBI the fact that we've not pass that kind of legislation is bothersome although it was installation that was necessarily a fault here that there wasn't some you know law that the Obama administration lacked was there well I think we're talking twenty twenty if there was any gaps making explicitly clear that foreign intervention is wrong I think most Americans would realize that but if we need a lot it explicitly make that clear we ought to have that the problem is we still have a president it refuses to fully acknowledge the level of intervention that took place refuses to fully acknowledge that the Russian efforts have not stopped that they will continue and instead unfortunately has been out there putting forward totally debunk theories that somehow it was Ukraine rather than Russia that was intervening in twenty sixteen that's very by the way which no one in the intelligence committee the law enforcement community and for that matter I don't think any of my Republican colleagues at least on the intelligence committee believe there's any credence to let me ask you the basic question in your view how serious is the ongoing threat of election interference Christopher ray the director of the FBI said as recently as yesterday that the Russian efforts are ongoing by the way you know the Russian playbook is now out there so the expectation that the Chinese the Iranians the north Koreans other nations in an asymmetrical way may try to intervene in our elections is a very real ongoing threat senator many thanks thank you so much it's Virginia Democrat mark Warner we also invaded the Republican chairman of the intelligence committee senator Richard Burr to come on the show he
Has China lost Taiwan?
"Taiwan's president secured secured a second term over the weekend started scenes of the woman who stood up to China because China always believe China. Taiwan's recent election is widely seen as a watershed moment a referendum between Wayne. Two very different choices saw in win. She's the president since two thousand sixteen. She promised to protect Taiwan's freedoms from an increasingly assertive. He said he's an autocratic Beijing or the nationalist combing Tung came to the opposition which stressed causes ties with Beijing. The result a landslide two cy and her ruling independence leading Democratic Progressive Party. It was her warnings about China that hit home. We've voters this threat Israel with these respect from China situation has changed you. You cannot exclude the possibility of a war. And it's high invading. Taiwan is something that is going to be very costly fled China Taiwan's president saw in win on the basis now. She scored move odds than any other presidential candidate since Taiwan hi one began holding democratic elections in Nineteen ninety-six. So why has Beijing's efforts to control. Taiwan was it backfired and we'll China Now back off from what it sees as a renegade province remember most nations including the United States and Australia. We adhere to the one China policy which means we formally acknowledge Beijing's claims over Taiwan but what can Washington and camera do to help this vibrant democracy of twenty ninety four million in the face of arising China. Natasha Qassam is research fellow at the Lowy Institute for International Policy where she directs the annual Lowy Institute suit poll. She's a former Australian diplomat. And he wants is emeritus professor of Strategic Studies at the Australian National University and author of how to defend Australia. He's a former deputy defense secretary. Natasha Hugh Welcome to Iran. To be with you thanks for having is time now Natasha. Why has China lost the battle for public opinion in Taiwan? Look I do think there's a real question as to whether China ever had a chance in this respect. You've got a longstanding up position in Taiwan to unification with China. You've got a long standing position to one country. Two Systems the model that China developed in the eighties Fulbari Taiwan and Hong Kong. And of course we see the problematic way that's playing out in Hong Kong today but the most important issue here I think has been the emergence of a unique Taiwanese identity entity. This is what has really changed over the last decade the majority of Taiwanese people they see themselves as Taiwanese and in part this is in opposition to a growing authoritarian -tarian reach from China but in pilots a product of Taiwan's transition to democracy. It's unique history in terms of its different periods of colonization and indigenous peoples. I think today we can say that. This far more that divides Taiwan and China then unites them. Is that growing sense of independence in Taiwan. And Natasha you mentioned Hong Kong and how that was supposed to be the roadmap for China's One Country Two Systems policy the clearly rebuked in these elections hugh. How does Beijing you all these? Well I think they must be very gloomy very concerned and I think getting pretty angry because I completely agree with Tushar I think the elections very significant because it confirms assumes absolutely that the prospect of an eventual consensual reunification of Taiwan agreeing to be absorbed or reabsorbed helped by the mainland looks more and more remark and the problem for everyone including for Taiwan is that Beijing is very unlikely to accept except that Beijing for Beijing reunification as I sit bringing Taiwan back into China is an essential part of their agenda of Xi. Jinping's agenda to for the rejuvenation as he calls it off of China overcoming of that century of humiliation which which began with the opium wars lower back in the forties and which she has set himself to overcome overturn. I think for him getting Taiwan back as he I would say it is. There is nothing more important to him. Nothing more important to the Communist Party and so we have The seats of a real tragedy because as Natasha says it's clear and clear that the Taiwanese don't want to be part of China and it says clearest safe obtain the Chinese determined to make it part of I hear you say Washington Santon. Sorry Beijing won't accept Taiwan's growing assertiveness but hasn't by aging conduct here been counterproductive. I think of John is if it's to intensify military not exercises around the Taiwan Strait. If it's to US light diplomatically. A Taiwan a hasn't that just stiffened the resolve of the tonys. ESO expected. Has I think I think that's been effector I think is Natasha. Says I think what's happened in. Hong Kong has has disabused anyone in Taiwan of any illusions about what one-country-two-systems three two systems would really mean. If it was applied to talk to Taiwan I think the growing authoritarian nature of the Chinese Communist Party ruled in China itself under under Shuzhen Ping Has Added to that. Boils I think as Natasha says again. That that the the the long term development of Taiwan itself Tallinn's entity that the the evolution of a very vibrant democracy there Meant that perhaps. Whatever Beijing done even if Beijing it'd be much less frightening that it has been it still would have been unlikely that Taiwan would move voluntarily to do what Beijing once and it's actually is hugh why wrought out here and he's not alone? We've had on this program over the last few years Professor Jon Meacham from the University of Chicago. The argument here is that not only will China be much more powerful awful than it is today but it will also remain deeply committed to making Taiwan part of China. I think she's deadline. Is this attender of the Communist revolution. Which would be a twenty four nine in other words? Tom Is on China. Saad your response. I disagree that Taiwan is really significant priority for Xi Jinping's China. But I think it's important when we think about what their highest priority is and for me that is always the domestic legitimacy of the potty state and and so by Beijing's policies primarily directed at that domestic audience. They might be failing in Taiwan but suddenly what they ought designed to do is to demonstrate two people in China that Beijing holds all the cards that they have a able to exit military pressure on Taiwan that they can exclude Taiwan from international organizations and that is the highest priority and under Xi Jinping's China. I think the hotline inflexible policies will just continue for godless. The effect that they have in Taiwan. But at the same time I do think it's a self fulfilling prophecy to argue that China will become so powerful so we should roll over and do nothing and therefore it will allow be allowed to become even more all powerful in military and economic times. I think this is almost a given Alpha China. But it's not a given in terms of China's power. China's power has been restricted in the region winslow in many ways many countries including Australia do not recognize the ages over the as traders say. China hasn't succeeded in achieving. Its goals in the South China Sea. It hasn't succeeded in closing bases in Japan. There's that in South Korea in numerous ways. I wouldn't say that time is on China side if anything I I think. China as a rational actor recognizes the cost of a protracted war a much higher than the cost of their patients on that knowledge has as Shea Jingping pink overreach. The embroiled other countries led by the US but including Australia to a newly skeptical view of Chana. I look clearly Thomas. China's Powell grows as system becomes more authoritarian as the way it seeks to exhibit influence throughout the region becomes to put it politely a more assertive a lot of countries. You Niger and beyond becoming more and more worried about what. China's power and hatch on is going to use its power mains over the next few decades but that I think we'd be too optimistic to imagine that China is somehow becoming a self limiting problem. I do think Jonah's power has grown. I think it's influences growing there. It's I still true. Of course. There's Natasha is that there are lots of things at China would like it. It hasn't yet got but I'm more pessimistic than she is that about China's capacity not to get its way increasingly as time goes on and it's worth bearing in mind all the things that China does get that yes Not everyone accepts what China wants to do in the just south China Sea but Australia. Itself hasn't undertaken serious remove navigation operations Australia and self does not acknowledge China as a strategic rival. The United States does Japan treating China increasingly cool. She asleep as it becomes less and less confident about Donald Trump's America. And we'll push you. It's Responsibilities towards Japan onto the treaty. So I think actually China is doing pretty well. I think we've made a big mistake. To underestimate raced tonight. But China's resolve in its capacity to use. Its Influence to get what it wants. I guess. Hugh Watt for my new and Tasha Qassam from from lowy and we're talking about Taiwan and China in the wake of the all in democracies election widely seen as a rebuke to Beijing. The TASHA you say Beijing's going to weaken Taiwan's democracy house. Oh look I think I said that it was going to try and I think it is trying in many ways. It's trying through disinformation Ryan and bypassing more media outlets in Taiwan and then controlling the narrative in that way it is certainly trying to infiltrate grassroots organizations like temple organizations sations and farmers and fisheries groups. The thing is that Beijing is very much moving away. I think from trying to support. Just one side of politics. The Guangdong Minggong which has always been seen as more friendly towards Beijing insofar as has been unsuccessful because the dog is not able to as. We've all of the reasons since we've already outlined. They are not able to deliver Taiwan in any way because of the way of public opinion against China. So now I believe that Beijing is trying to undermine undermine the democracy itself to undermine people's faith in institutions trying to essentially mess it up I think the best expression I've had tended into Crimea so that you have a government paralyzed a government that people do not trust and in that way the system would be much weaker. You Natasha to agree that Beijing is going to try awaken Taiwan's democracy and certainly badging will increase the pressure to open talks on reunification. I suppose the question here is wise. China so sensitive about Taiwan one. I mean think about it Taiwan or Formosa as it was earlier known. It's only been part of China for something like four out of the past one hundred twenty twenty five years since Japanese colonization nineteen ninety-five four out of one hundred twenty five and those four years when the nationalists who fled to Taiwan. They were running the mainland alien so why the sensitivity. He what. We'll Tom Because one hundred and twenty five years is not very long time in the way of China's paypal and the Chinese government see themselves CBS and has precisely one hundred and twenty five years that I see correctly in some ways as being a very black period in the history and that the the great mission of the Communist Party has been to bring China out of that as I said before the rejuvenation of the Chinese people. It's hard to underestimate. Overestimate the the emotional power Al behind this idea of China returning to its previous position and Taiwan has become a and the Chinese Communist Party has made Taiwan into a a symbol of everything bad that happened to China before and everything that Diane resolved to fix and the way in which they they put Hong Kong back into into the fold the YM which have grown their economy the way in which they have reasserted China's military power and have trying at least to reassert itself the parish cultural pass at a speak. All of that is part of the deal but Taiwan is in a sense that the jewel in the crown for them and so I think the the political political and to a certain extent the emotional fright that the Taiwan issue carries does make it absolutely central to the Communist. Party's not just its own sense of itself but it's confidence that it can continue command. The loyalty and achieved legitimacy in the eyes of the Chinese people as what Communist Party delivers not just in terms of prosperity but in terms of China's dignity and position in the world symbolized by Taiwan that is so central to its legitimacy as the government of China Anna.

"The earlier sanctions on after the invasion of crimea in two thousand fourteen as you pointed out they do hurt the russian economy in the short run people and i when i say people i say the average russian citizen new is fed a constant stream of kremlin propaganda because the state owns the television these people the average russian are still they're very patriotic and they view russia as being embattled by this evil west but in the longer term because the russian economy is is weak and it isn't recovering really at a good rate and these recent sanctions of course we'll add extra harm in the eye it some point the average russian is going to say wait a minute why are you know why aren't my pensions being raised when the inflation is going up what's wrong with the healthcare system why can't i ride on the road so in the long run i think that this will end up harming vladimir putin but of course it's a question of time it is and to speed that up we do things like we're pushing london england to start telling the russians get out of the london banks european union to stop accepting rush investment that will begin to get through to them because if they don't want to build it the military's in defend themselves and least they could back us economically in our push to get russia's attention don't you agree i do agree and i think those types of measures will eventually exerts some influence on on the putin regime but you have to remember that that the oligarchs that we're talking about and a high level russian officials and of course these these categories kind of overlap because some high ranking watson officials are all the guards in the sense that they're hugely wealthy but if you look at this whole array of people who give putin his support yes it's this is going to damage them a lot of them can no longer travel to the west they can't send their children to fancy private schools in england and the us but it's it's a it's a matter of time and you you also have to remember that these people are.

"And and tell you what you also have to understand is that putin has a very clear goal here he's got a clear political goal which is to get the united states lift sanctions which were imposed by the obama administration on russia in two thousand fourteen after the war in ukraine and after putin basically stole crimea heat using had admitted she and the thing is sort of sanctions play into the russian domestic political conversation because they've despite what state tv says that have had an overwhelming effect on the economy people have felt them they fantastically irritated putin's kind of oligarchy ache in a circle he many from an sanction can't travel to the us they contravene the european union they can access that they yeltsin the mediterranean all that will that wine cellars in switzerland they see this as an affront and dignity and so i presient really wants to get rid of sanctions and really he viewed trump is the best vehicle the king that because trump kept on saying that be friends with russia meanwhile we know that secretly his aides were emailing the kremlin asking for assistance with bellinger hotel in trump tower and then of course trump winds to putin's surprise but the problem is that the russia's story becomes such a kind of billowing scandal that trump is now to of politically able to deliver an end to sanctions and i i think what's interesting about this it's so to speak stood bigotry if you like is that actually i think without exaggeration i think job on one level what what happened in two thousand sixteen america was was you might consider to be the greatest espionage operation ever by the russian side which is now say that the tens of millions of people have voted for donald trump didn't do do say sincerely because of course they did but that actually russia possibly successfully pushed trump across the line so that was instead of tactical trump for putin but in other respects it was a strategic fadia because as she sanctions is than in place it's now imposed for donald trump to lift them and i think what it shows is that the problem with the way the kremlin thinks about the world is that imagines other countries to.
