Pastor Jack Hibbs on the Role of Faith in the World Economic Forum
"World Economic Forum that recently met, like you said in Davos, they produce they published a bunch of papers, but one of the papers that they put out was a discussion that they had regarding the role that faith plays in the World Economic Forum. Now you see Jack, what are you guys talking about World Economic Forum? A gathering of some of the world's most powerful financiers, bankers, politicians, movers and shakers will sum it up that way. These people go there and they get these ideas from globalists, then they come back to their countries and they also speak attempt to speak the same language. Environmentalism, socialism, whatever is them. Let's all talk these talks. We go there to Davos, we unify our speech, we try to assemble what was dissembled, we're trying to put it together, and then we're going to launch it in the world and talk one language. What's very interesting is, and I just read it today on faith, they recognize that faith is a vital role to the human machine to humanity. And they seek to work with faith based people, individuals, because it's such a vital role. They said that they want to meet with faith leaders of the world. They said that they want to have a dialog with them. And then they published, I think it was 7 concerns that the World Economic Forum has regarding religious people. And they listed them. And one of them, I'll bring up a few of them. They're in my memory right now. One of them is that one of the problems with religious people that they need to get over is that they are not willing to experience change. Well, I disagree. Jesus changed us dramatically and radically.
Keith Rose on the Enmity in America
"I was thinking about the turmoil in our nation today, and it's really been heavy on my heart. I'm new rob says I was a fell away for a season. It was a really long season. Till I was 45. And I lived in my head. I've talked about it before. And I was trying to build a kingdom just not God's kind of my own. There's a lot of people are trying to do in America today. And they're trying to do it in Switzerland now, too. In Davos. But I wanted to understand from a biblical standpoint what's going on because I know I don't have all the answers. But what I look at is really complicated, God looks at and goes, it's ridiculously simple. And so I went to the Bible. I was reading one day in ephesians two, 14. And it says, for he himself is our piece. Who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall. By abolishing in his flesh, the which is the law of commandments contained in ordinances so that in himself he might make the two into one new man, the establishing peace. And my reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross by having put to death. Again, the enmity in us. And I read that in something in my heart, the Holy Spirit hit me really hard. And I was so excited, but I had to figure out what enmity meant. I kind of knew what it meant, intuitively, but I really wanted to know the exact definition. So I looked it up. And tell me if this doesn't describe our nation today or what they're getting ready to deal with. It's a deep seated, often mutual hatred. Affiliate or state of hatred or animosity. The quality or state of being hostile or feeling a condition of antagonism ill will Discord. Man today is living in the enmity. In total Discord, we have one group against another group. We have one faction against another faction, our founding fathers warned us about this. But it's happening today in America. And so I wanted to understand what is the root cause because a lot of times we see content and we make a lot of judgments off that content, the Discord without the context. Why and how? What can we do about it?

"Of what the economy looks like, right? If they think it doesn't feel right, then they want it to be out of the data by experts calling it a recession. If they think it's okay and they don't know what everybody's going on about, they're happy that people say it's not. It was that your impression as well. Yes, actually you've summed up what most of them were saying. Like the language really doesn't matter, but what people are asking in short is what is going on. And what are we supposed to do as consumers as people who are in this economy, they just are not really concerned about the language, whether it's a recession or not, they just want to know what is going on and what is expected of us. And I think one of them must have said that their learning to humanize these stories, whereas for most of them, they were so used to writing for a niche audience. You know, they were writing for people who understood how stock market works. They were writing for people who actually understood the business. They used to intervene economies. They used to interview people who know how the Federal Reserve works. And they're used to giving that to their audience who they assume and understands that they are not so used to talking to ordinary people, even myself. But then now it's the ordinary people who are asking what is going on. And some of them admitted that they are struggling with language, they are struggling with packaging in a way that is going to be relevant to the people who are asking this question.

"So a week or so ago, I wrote a newsletter for CJR about Davos, and the coverage of Davos and frankly how much I hated it. And what the coverage told us about bigger flaws in the way that business reporters are covering the economy. It's like there's a disconnect between what I read and what I experience and hear people talking about, having to do with the state of business and the state of the economy. And I'm curious why what I see isn't better reflected. So I'm really happy to be joined in this conversation by Rana ruha. She's the associate editor and global business columnist for the Financial Times. Ron has been covering the economy in the U.S. and around the world for three decades during that time she's written a few books, one about the 2008 recession, which we'll talk about. One about big tech and her most recent book, which came out last fall, talks about economic localization. Rana is very good at distilling big ideas into information that's directly related to real life. That's why we thought she'd be the perfect person to discuss how business journalists should be thinking more directly about their readers. Welcome Rana. Ronna, thank you very much for joining us. Oh, thanks for having me. I thought a good place to start would be to talk about Davos. You didn't go this year? I didn't. I decided that last May was my last Davos and having done 2020 or so. I can't really remember if it was 2021 years. I feel I've done my time in the minds, and I'm done now. What is your problem with it? Gosh, where to begin. I mean, I'm tempted to quote Jill Abrams, and I don't know if I'm allowed to say this in my podcast, but I guess you can edit me out that it's a corrupt circle jerk, but I do think that she captured something important about both the demographics, which despite efforts over the last few years are just unbelievably old white male, but also the psychology, which is,

Larry Taunton Reports From Poland on His W.E.F. Experience
"Our friend Larry, Taunton. Whom you know from this program, he is now in Poland. He was just in Davos, Switzerland with the Antichrist convention. Or whatever they call it, Larry, thank you so much for making the effort all the way from Poland to be on this program. Hey, great to be with you, brother. What part of Poland are you in, sir? I am in Warsaw, and I've been here with Ukrainian refugees almost exclusively women because of course the men were required to stay in fight. And just trying to get a look at what's going on there. And it's very interesting. Well, I want to talk to you of course about where you just were. You were at the world economic forum, I am, again, amazed that you made your way there, we've got a few minutes, tell us what did you see and hear, what are you thinking? Yeah, Eric, you know, you learn from experience that there are some things that you just can't deduce not being there. They're just certain experiences that you're going to get. Things you're going to understand by just having boots on the ground. And that's the way I felt about Davos by going there. I thought, you know, I'm probably going to get some insights here that I otherwise would not get. Now let's be clear, the World Economic Forum, there were over 50 heads of state at this particular gathering. There were more than a 115 billionaires, 600 plus a major CEOs in about 2700 attendees. And my approach here, rather than doing what in some ways you and people at home probably had a better idea of what was going on with the big picture than I did. You're in an individual session or something and you don't see the big picture of what's going on. But that stuff was being covered very well by other people. My approach was to try to get some idea of the people who are attending and the big ideas that are driving the forum. And of course, at bottom, it is utterly atheistic.

Never Give an Inch
"You know, I am surprised that you're not in Davos this week. We are pre taping this the week before never give an inch comes out. And John Kerry's in Davos, so I just assume that every former Secretary of State would be in Davos. Have you ever gone to Davos, mister secretary? Never been to Davos, kinded out my vibe, you. You and me both, I got invited this year didn't go. I want to ask you know about the Aspen institute. The one thing that didn't get dragged in never give an inch and there's a lot of D.C. that gets dragged here and we're going to get into that is the Aspen institute. I think it's been totally captured like the Chamber of Commerce by the left wing and now doesn't serve the function it used to serve. What say you, mister secretary? Yes, it's too bad. It's always been a place where ideas were to exchange, I think, in fact, they call it the ideas form, something like that. I did go there once to speak. I was interviewed by Brett Stevens. There's an example of someone who's just brain melted down, right? Brett's David was with someone for whom I still have enormous intellectual respect, but he lost his mind with respect to president Trump. He just he could no longer breathe in his way through problems and solutions and accept when we got it right with a handful of exceptions. I went and I went to the Aspen forum. He was the unfortunate bystander when I spoke directly to The New York Times about something they had done that was devastatingly awful. They had named one of my best at CIA officers. They put his name in print. I had spoken to the publisher. I'd spoken to the editor. Asking them to please not publish this man's name, we had to provide security for he and his family as a result of what The New York Times did. There was Hugh. There was no news element to publishing his name. He had simply been responsible for large pieces of the counter terrorism operation for the last 20 years. He was running my Iran mission center. They didn't like that. And so they put his name in print, risking the lives of his family forever. It was

How BlackRock Can Control America's Future with ESG
"Hey, it's pretty good when you're BlackRock and you decide you're going to go all in on ESG investing and then you get your guy who used to run the ESG team at your firm to be head of the economic council in the Biden administration where you can once again perpetuate this ESG ESG investing, it's pretty good for BlackRock, which by the way has some $9 trillion in assets under management right now. I mean, that's like a country. I mean, that's a lot of money. I think U.S. GDP is somewhere around 20 some odd $1 trillion. I mean, France, the size of France's economy is probably around two or $3 trillion. Germany may be four, so hey, if you're a BlackRock, with some 9 $10 trillion under management, let me tell you, you're getting the white passes at Davos. That's for sure. And you're controlling America's future by using this so called social equality to your own capitalist advantage. I

Delusional Davos Elites Just Proved Their Hypocrisy And Stupidity
"Face it. The way things are going, we need all the help we can get. These folks over there at Davos, they think that they run the world, and I guess they probably do, and that's very scary, because they have no clue what is really needed. Again, let me go back to this whole diversity inclusion theme that they got going on. The hypocrisy of it is literally. It's on display on every single person's ski parka. I'm not kidding. You have to wear a big badge and on the badge you have a color and depending on the color, you have access to certain things or not. So white is the highest that's reserved for the big CEOs and heads of state and all that good stuff. And then you get orange and then you get green and purple and blue and red and strangely gold is actually at the very bottom of the rung there. And people are really into this. It's a big deal. You only get so many of these fancy schmancy passes. They go through a lot to get these right passes. It's totally stupid for an organization that makes itself all about this a quality diversity. How do we make everything fair, fair, fair? They themselves are not very fair. For an organization that's obsessed with climate change and how are we going to make sure that we don't have people using energy needlessly, you have all these billionaires flying in on their private jets.

"Slash breakdown pod. All right Friends, well, for this weekly recap, we are turning our attention to Davos. I think in many ways, Davos and the World Economic Forum more broadly are one of the more fascinating and telling phenomenons of our time. Certainly from the standpoint of big picture power shifts and people's appreciation or lack thereof of the global elite and globalism more broadly. When people talk about Davos, what they're referring to is the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum. Each year it happens in Davos Switzerland in January. It has since its beginnings been an elite global gathering, and so in many ways, one can chart the shifts in attitudes about global elites and globalism and globalization on how people discuss Davos. One of the big themes of discourse from the past few years has been, for example, the contrast between the stated goals of working towards a greener world and fighting combat change and the images of hundreds of private jets that brought the guests there. And of course, that's just the tip of the iceberg. For some, Davos in the WEF represent the Illuminati, a global conspiracy of elites trying to shape the world to benefit themselves in their own objectives. TBD's Mike Brock wrote, I don't really care about Davos, like at all. But I'm always somewhat amused by the crazed, unhinged conspiracy thinking on social media in and around it. His colleague Daniel who works on decentralized identity at TBD writes, I don't think Davos is some conspiracy event, there are just a bunch of politicians slash elites there who people despise many have earned it. It seems Davos has become something of a lightning rod for the collective expression of dislike for those attendees. And indeed, even if one doesn't think the Swiss gathering represents a hotbed of global conspiracy, it's hard to deny that as people in countries around the world have shifted away from the globalism of the 90s and early 2000s, the event has become more discordant and dis resonant with larger global trends. There's also the critique that it's just a bunch of people jaw boning. As Elon Musk put it on December 30th, my reason for declining the Davos invitation was not because I thought they were engaged in diabolical scheming, but because it sounded boring AF LOL. Still, I do think that Davos provides a chance to get a sense of what the world's establishment thinks about various big issues of the time, and for the last few years there has been a perhaps a small but still solid crypto industry presence at the event. As you might expect, the crypto presence there this year was significantly down compared to last year, but you still saw big firms showing up, holding many conferences panels, et cetera. The attendees of those events have included United Nations representatives, officials from the U.S. commodities futures trading commission, and numerous global lawmakers. So what themes have been on display at these events. One big theme is the ways in which cryptocurrency and blockchain technology can integrate with the other subjects the attendees of WEF are interested in. For example, some of the topics that have been covered include how crypto adoption is driving, growing dollarization of the world. Tokenized climate solutions and use cases in delivering humanitarian aid. Another huge theme this year as you might well imagine has been image rehab. Significant energy is going into rehabilitating the industry's image following the collapse of FTX. With speakers drawing the distinction that although FTX was a crisis for the industry, it didn't represent a crisis for the underlying technology. PayPal president and CEO Dan schulman said quote, it's important not to conflate cryptocurrencies in CBDCs. Stablecoins are distributed ledger technology. They're very different things. He said that although the crypto markets of crash quote the underlying tech is performed perfectly. The promise of a distributed ledger is that it can be faster and cheaper to settle transactions simultaneously with no middlemen. That's an important thing. End quote Dante despair, chief strategy officer for circle, expressed his eagerness to move on from the events of last year. We're coming in with guns blazing, 2022 was crypto's dot com bus moment. Now we're bringing in key executives and putting on a lot of content that shows that the

John Kerry Tells the Davos Crowd Climate Change Fight Needs Money
"He said that the world needs most what the world needs most to flight time to climate change is, and this is a direct quote. Ready? Money, money, money, money, money, money, money. That's good. I'll bet in the history of the English language, the word money has never been repeated. Or stated to be precise 7 times. I wonder if they have Guinness Book of records for that sort of thing. How often was a noun repeated by a public official? And The Wall Street Journal adds correctly by which he means other people's money. He's very wealthy, and he will remain very wealthy. But you won't. And for that matter, I won't. The key is philanthropy, he said, translation, government and financial institutions must make grants and low interest loans to poor countries with no expectation of a financial return.

"All right, well let's break into Davos. So I wanted to, of course, Davos is the World Economic Forum. They're meeting in Davos, Switzerland, their headquartered in Geneva, but they've been meeting since 1971. They were just some background here. They originally were called the European management forum and they were founded around Klaus Schwab's ideas of stakeholder capitalism. Of course, that is just socialism lite. That's what he started this as a stakeholder capitalism where you had a duty and responsibility to the world more than just your shareholders. You had stakeholders that you had to serve. So that is a socialist idea. Anyway, in 1974, father Kamara, who was the founder of liberation theology. He was the outright communist. He was persona non grata in the west, but he was invited to speak at Davos. And guess what? Klaus Schwab called him his spiritual father. So Klaus Schwab called this massive kami his spiritual father. Anyway, and you can see this strand of Marxism and communism all the way through the WEF with their great reset where you won't have any private property. You won't own your own nothing and be happy, right?

"After the war finished, he could very well have stopped doing his forgeries because obviously the moral imperative had gone and also the need to do it in France had gone, but his attention turned then to other struggles that were going on in the world. Which needed some help with full documents, for example, for guerrilla fighters for leftists who were wanted by the authorities. And so on. So he found himself making full documents first for agents of military intelligence in France, who were needing to cross the Germany to find out about the death camps, then in the 1960s he began to work for the FLN guerrillas in Algeria, who were fighting against the French colonial power. Then he moved to anywhere there was a leftist group rising against the right wing of fascist authorities, so in Chile, in Nicaragua, in Guinea and Guinea-Bissau in Angola in place after place that she didn't apart its South Africa too. He lent his services to all these groups, and he even helped Americans who were hoping to avoid the draft to go and fight in Vietnam. And kept on doing this work until he was in his 70s, when at last he retired. Not having told anybody what he had been doing, his family didn't know why every so often he would just disappear, and in fact he left them once at four two whole years. Again, not explaining anything, it all had to be kept extremely secret this work that he was doing. In order to keep the secret, he had always had a cover. And the cover for him was to be a photographer. He was actually extremely good photographer. He started doing it in the war and he went on afterwards. It is photography of people in the street or scenes in France, particularly in Paris. When he was dealing with awful inhumanity and death and evil in the work that he had to do in his forges work. He could find some respite and some freedom going out into the streets and finding instead humanity and beauty. The whole spectrum of humanity that he found in Paris and that warmed his heart as opposed to depressing him. And in a sense these lives too, he was rescuing from oblivion.

"Week, the rich and powerful have made their annual pilgrimage to Davos. The World Economic Forum's jamboree of free market thought leaders has plenty to wrestle with. Conflict in Ukraine, inflation, wobbling energy markets spreading economic protectionism for both politicians and business leaders, it's a fraught time. So is any mint and beto's our editor in chief trekked up to take part in perhaps the world's fanciest talking shop. I've spent the past few days in Davos, which is most of the year a Swiss mountain resort to which thousands of the world's movers and shakers come for one week. When I arrived, it was snowing. It was cold, and the town itself is really built along one main road, the promenade, and in the middle of the promenade is a large Congress center, which is where all of the official action of the World Economic Forum takes place. But along both ends of the promenade, the what I assume are usually hairdressing salons, bakers, shops, are taken over by all manner of governments and big companies. So when I walk from my hotel, which is a lovely little ski hotel along the promenade, I pass the India inclusivity lounge, the Malaysia house, the Ukraine house, and I get tons of exercise because I spend my dive walking between meetings, you know, this is a cliche now, but it really is a very small place into which thousands of people who I think would not ordinarily be wandering around in snow boots. Walk along this road. So inside all of these meetings is a sort of generalized buzz of a lot of people from all over the world coming together and meeting each other, trying to grab seats to have a quick conversation. It's like a sort of adult speed dating. And it feels a bit over caffeinated and a little bit of are you in the right place at the right time? There is so much going on here. I think there's a lot of fomo amongst a lot of people wondering about whether they're in the right place at the right time. So in this scene of over caffeinated speed dating, what was the mood like? So one of the things that struck me this week is I was expecting a sense of gloom and pessimism. This Davos was taking place when the world economy had just been hit by a huge shock, right? The invasion of Ukraine obviously the energy price shock, high inflation. Lots and lots of economists forecast in the last three weeks or so saying that inflation was very likely in many parts of the world this year, but actually there is, I think, among the business people, there's a surprising sense of optimism that actually maybe Europe can Dodge a recession that the U.S. may Dodge a recession and particularly because of China's opening. The Chinese vice premier Liu he arrived for I think 23 hours with a considerable contingent of Chinese officials and gave a very upbeat speech about China being open for business, clearly a charm offensive. And I think that combination of the sense that China is going to bounce back this year plus the given the shops may be more countries might Dodge recession. Has given amongst the business people, I think, a sense of surprising optimism. So those are the kind of emergent themes, but what's formally on the agenda? What are people actually here to talk about? So the official theme this year was cooperation in a fragmented world, which is a pretty broad phrase, but actually quite accurate because I think everybody realizes that the new post pandemic era is quite different to the world that we had before the pandemic. It's different because of the growing strategic rivalry between the U.S. and China. It's different because countries are focusing much more on industrial policy. It's much more of a zero sum world. And it's a different world actually because there are now accelerated new technologies that was a lot of talk here about how things like chat GPT could be harnessed, what that meant for the future of work. And so overlaying all of this, I think people realize we're in a new world. They're not quite sure what it is. There isn't yet a anodyne Davos phrase for it, but underlying it was a lot of this short term optimism that we talked about Jason, but a sense of disquiet about what does this new world really look like and is it a world in which the kind of cooperation that Davos espouses can really continue? And amid all of those different topics was there anything that sort of bubbled to the top a single issue in particular? You know, one of the striking things about this gathering is actually most of the real work most of the real impact takes place away from the cameras away from these big slightly stage discussions in the Congress center. And between individuals at meetings behind closed doors that cocktail parties at the private events, that's where people really have their conversations. And I think those conversations are on a huge number of topics, but there was an awful lot of discussion about what China's reopening means, a lot of discussion about the whole energy market, where that is going. And of course, what is happening in Ukraine. And I think amongst the political leaders who were here and Olaf scholz was the only G 7 leader here. A lot of conversation about and actually a lot of questioning of Germany's reluctance to supply tanks. So this is all timely useful conversation. Those of us down at sea level understand Davos to be just a sort of talking shop for the elites without much relevance to the wider world. That's a widely held and frankly somewhat reasonable criticism. And I think if you listen to the public statements from Davos, it is full of platitudes. And it is kind of ridiculous that a bunch of rich people trek up to this fancy resort and make big sweeping remarks about how to make the world a better place. But that said, I'm sort of reluctant to be too cynical about this because I do think there is a usefulness in having people come together to talk. And all of these conversations that take place, they are conversations that are useful to have, particularly given the fragmented state of the world today. And if you didn't have something like that, you would probably want to invent it because more talking is better than less talking right now. Okay, clearly talking is better than not talking, but must all of this happen at a snazzy Swiss ski resort? I completely take your point. It's a ridiculous place to have it, particularly at a time when the economy is in such a tough position. You have very rich people trekking to a ski resort. It's absurd in lots of ways. But underpinning it, this notion that you have people talking to each other is actually really important. And it's quite hard to replicate this network effect. So that is to say that Davos is the important high star power event that it always was and needs to be. I think that challenge that Davos faces is not just a PR challenge. It's that it clearly is not the place where politicians were global leaders feel they have to come and wear actually big political breakthroughs are made. In years past that used to be the case. But this time, Joe Biden is not here using ping is not here and my father is not here, which is soon acts not here. And I think that's partly because it is really faintly toxic for political leaders to come here. And so I think that does raise a question if you don't have the politicians for how long can this place continue to attract all of the CEOs. If it basically just becomes a business leaders gathering, that's somewhat different to the kind of pretensions that it has. And so I do think it may be well be fading. That doesn't mean that what happens here is not useful. So with that, what will you be thinking

"Then we're looking back, the country is laughing at these clowns at Davos. The World Economic Forum, I will never stop teasing my friend and colleague Hugh Hewitt for announcing that he was invited. That's a bad thing. You don't want to be invited to this nut house. It's hysterical. I mean, these people are carrying on Brian stelter is one of the distinguished panelists. This is the guy that got fired on CNN. The bald headed guy? Greg gutfeld on the 5 had a very funny take about Brian stelter somehow being an expert on misinformation in the media of all people. The irony, of course, is lost on all of these globalists and Davos, listen to this. Stelter's there, but all this fails. Stelter is there talking about disinformation. Isn't that amazing? What's he going to talk about next? How to get washboard abs? Seriously. I'm not invited to these things because I have solutions. And if you go there with solutions, they can't have their fun anymore. So the climate change thing is great because every year that's always going to be the problem. Always the problem. You can still have your Davos party, you can still fly in because it'll never be solved. And fly in on your private jets, which to me is the one that makes me crazy.

Ron DeSantis: No Discrimination, No Requirements Over COVID Mandates
"Ron DeSantis knows it. You know, there's this debate about what's going to happen in 2024. Trump versus desantis. I'm hearing from people who don't like the fact that president Trump spearheaded operation warp speed. These are people who don't like the vaccine. That throws them, I guess, into the desantis camp. I don't know. But what I do know is Ron DeSantis is on record as saying no more mandates, no more vaccine requirements, no more mask requirements in the state of Florida. If you have the booster, you can eat lunch normally. If you don't, you got to be segregated in the corner for not having the booster. Maybe they make you wear a mask all this stuff, even though the boosted person is more likely to be getting it. So it's insane, it's irrational. And so no discrimination on this fact status. No requirements of masking in lieu of vax or for any other reason. And those are really, really important. You know, sometimes you just have to say, enough is enough, sometimes you have to say enough is enough.

In the way he points out the chickens are coming home to roost, the justice, the Justice Department, smeared Trump with the Russian collusion crap, and now they are being forced to atone for this entire Biden scandal in a way that no one ever saw coming. There is something is happening. In America, something has happened in the world that goofy New Zealand prime minister? Who had some of the most ridiculously draconian and onerous COVID mandates in the world? If you see your neighbor call the police, if she closed everything down. And apparently the people of New Zealand are through with her, so she tearfully resigned yesterday. All over the world, people are saying, this has got to end. You can not use COVID as a tool anymore to try to control people. You can not continue to use the pandemic as a weapon to control citizens. Enough is enough is enough.

Poll: 60% of Americans Believe Biden Mishandled Classified Documents
"This is getting worse and worse. They have no explanation. I saw a poll this morning, 60% of Americans believe Biden mishandled the documents. What are the other 40% saying? Because they literally mishandled the documents. You could say it wasn't intentional or he shouldn't be having classified documents in his garage next to the Corvette. And certainly if you don't think Donald Trump should have documents in the fortress of Mar-a-Lago guarded by Secret Service agents, then you sure don't think, and listen to be fair. I've made that kind of equivocation, but I want to be totally transparent and fair here. Biden has had Secret Service protection, too. I don't think they were at the house in Delaware, but I get it. You can't, you really can't say, oh, there's nothing wrong with Trump's documents at Mar-a-Lago and the world comes to an end. Over Biden. But you can't do it the other way around either. You can't say that it's okay for Biden to have done it and have a whole different set of standards and a whole different application of the law, no raids on Biden's home in the middle of the night. None of the garbage we saw associated with Trump, there is a double standard.

Al Gore Rants About Climate Change at World Economic Forum
"Listen to him yesterday at the heralded World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. A missions are still going up. When are we going to bring these emissions down? And just to put the science in a slightly different context, people are familiar with that thin blue line that the astronauts bring back in their pictures from space. That's the part of the atmosphere that has oxygen, the troposphere, and it's only 5 to 7 kilometers thick. That's what we're using as an open sewer. If you could drive a car straight up in the air at interstate highway speeds, you get to the top of that blue line and 5 minutes. And all the greenhouse gas pollution would be below you. We're still putting a 162 million tons into it every single day. And the accumulated amount is now trapping as much extra heat as would be released by 600,000 Hiroshima class atomic bombs exploding every single day on the earth. That's what's boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers and The Rain bombs and sucking the moisture out of the land and creating the droughts and melting the ice and raising the sea level and causing these waves of climate refugees predicted to reach 1 billion in this century. Look at the xenophobia and political authoritarian trends that have come from just a few million refugees. What about a billion? We would lose our capacity for self governance on this one. I mean, if you're watching this on the sale of news channel, his you're watching this on the sale of news channel, his veins are bulging. He's purple in the face. Yeah, that's normal. Here's a great Twitter, a tweet I saw. This man who arrived in Davos on a private jet and was ferried to the hotel in a full sized gas guzzling SUV and owns three mansions is a complete and total fraud.

How Could Al Gore Defend Flying Private to Davos?
"Let's bring nonpolitical for 5 minutes. Can we do that? I think you and I can do it together. We can do this. Let's be nonpolitical. How could Al Gore possibly defend flying private to Davos? Considering him ranting and raving about rainbow rain bombs. Quick duck there's a rain bomb coming. The boiling waters, manstein's, he really does, it sounds like you're overhearing a conversation in the mental ward. There's something wrong with the guy. And how would he answer the question, how can you rant and rave about the perils of climate change and harm the environment that much by flying private big gas guzzling ozone destroying private jet like you did?
Donald Trump Jr.: DOJ Purposely Waited Before Assigning Special Prosecutor
"What do you make of the most disgusting aspect of it which reeks of the policy is they waited till after the election They knew they knew it was before the midterms They had the basics of this information And then they wait And then they appoint someone who absolutely hates Trump to go after Trump and they appoint a never Trump to look at Biden I mean we all know going and it's going nowhere It's just like the domination today where magically they appoint someone from the security guard at the Supreme Court to look into the imaginary they can't find out where it was If it was a conservative leak that benefited a conservative cause weaponized against the American people right before an election someone would be in jail by now but now magically they can't do it It's hard to have any trust in these systems anymore The media covers it up The everyone's on the payroll of the Democrat party it seems The only people that they just look at where we are Now versus where we were under Trump even in the midst of a pandemic it's not even close and yet as long as the Washington D.C. elite can get rich As long as we can keep fueling these wars and you've heard all the commentary about how we need to be engaging now today at Davos all the billionaires preaching about climate change flying on their private jets burning up a carbon footprint like no human being on earth has ever done before telling you the American people you can't have a gas burning stove but the rules are never really going to affect them Mark So we'll just keep going this way It's absolutely disgusting And I just hope that there's a point where I hope it's extreme enough that regular people that aren't consuming this stuff like you and I do on a daily basis are realizing just how flagrant it is They don't care they're throwing it in our faces and they're laughing It's disgusting

It's No Surprise Prostitution Flourishes at the WEF
"Apparently there are a whole bunch of prostitutes that have flown into Davos for the World Economic Forum. Now this is not because they are speakers or attendees. They are apparently providing services on the side. And the daily mail interviewed a couple of them. One of them said that. She charges €700 about $760 for an hour. This is or €2300 or $2500 for the whole night. Plus travel expenses. Another escort service, which is about a hundred miles away from the summit. The manager says she's got an 11 bookings and 25 inquiries and they're going to be a lot more coming in. This week with the conference in full swing, now these prostitution rates seem kind of high. I mean, I don't speak from experience. I have all these speaking from looking at the rate itself, but I think the rates are actually too low because when you look at the caliber of people at the World Economic Forum, I mean, this is going to be a hard, this is going to be a lot of, you know, these days they don't call them prostitutes. They call them sex workers. And I guess what I'm saying is it's going to be a lot of work. I mean, imagine, for example, being a prostitute servicing Paul Ryan, I mean, this is a guy with the personality of an electric chair. Or Klaus Schwab, Klaus Schwab is the guy who runs the World Economic Forum. I mean, this guy is like a hundred years old. I mean, I met Klaus Schwab about 1995. I thought he was around 80 then. I mean, I don't think he was. He probably wasn't in 60s. I think he's now in his 80s. But imagine being a prostitute, servicing Klaus Schwab. I don't feel anything.

"Really need the end and the victory to be this year says Ukrainian lawmaker, Alana scrum. Noting that neither Ukraine, nor its partners can afford for this war to go on indefinitely. We can win. We just need more weapons and more air defense. Businesses donating humanitarian aid is one thing, supplying funding for defensive weapon systems is quite another. But as some Ukrainians see it, donated laptops to support the education of Ukrainian children can only go so far in a country that barely has electricity. Let alone schools that can be shielded from Russian shelling. It would be cheaper to buy the air defense systems and close the sky than to rebuild later, says Ukrainian lawmaker Alexandra ustinova, who leads Ukraine's temporary special commission on arms control, but understandably she adds, businesses don't want to get into this. The Ukrainian delegation are not the only ones raising the issue of the war at Davos. Belarusian opposition leader Sviatlana Sikh Anushka, the first representative from Belarus to attend WEF in three decades, has spent the past few days reminding attendees that the crises and her home country and Ukraine are intertwined. Belarus now is overlooked. We feel this seeker told time, noting that so long as Belarusian dictator and Kremlin ally, Alexander Lukashenko remains in power and so long as men's continues to host Russian soldiers on its territory, there will be a constant threat to our neighbors. Phrase of the day. Ukrainian First Lady Elena zelensky has been quizzed about many things during her time in Davos, though perhaps nothing more so than the prospect of Ukraine fatigue. To be completely honest with you, I really have the fatigue of the questions about the fatigue. Zelensky told time during a press briefing on Wednesday. Based on her experience at Davos, she added, it seems like an exaggeration. And I think this may be a part of the information warfare, because I think our enemy would be very happy if people were fatigued from Ukraine. Hot topic. Chat GPT and the potential of artificial intelligence have been hot topics at this week's WEF. Microsoft chairman and CEO Satya Nadella, extolled the virtues of GPT technology in a conversation with WEF Klaus Schwab Wednesday. The company is reportedly mulling a $10 billion investment and OpenAI, the company behind chat GPT. But as a time investigation reveals, the workers in Kenya, who helped make chat GPT possible faced poor working conditions. The story of these workers demonstrates that for all its glamour and boss, AI often relies on hidden human labor in the global south that can be damaging and exploitative. These invisible workers remain on the margins, even as their work contributes to $1 billion industries. Peak moments, German Chancellor Olaf scholz pledged to continue supporting Ukraine as long as necessary amid calls for Berlin to authorize the export of German made leopard tanks to Kyiv. When asked by a Ukrainian delegate about Berlin's hesitancy, Schultz said such discussions would have to be taken in coordination with friends and partners. Schultz also announced Germany's ambition of attaining climate neutrality by 2045. Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky led a minute of silence in honor of the 14 people killed in Wednesday's helicopter crash in Kyiv, including Ukrainian interior minister Denise monastery. Tragedies are outpacing life, zelensky said afterwards. The time the free world uses to think is used by the terrorist state to kill. Zelensky's conversation with time editor in chief Edward felsenthal was canceled in light of the crash.

Zelenskyy ramps up pressure on Western allies to send tanks
"Ukraine's president has spared his frustration about not obtaining enough tanks from some western nations to help his country defend itself from Russia in a breakfast video link meeting president volodymyr zelensky and his disappointments with certain countries such as Germany, Poland and the United States for hesitating and sending tanks. Zelensky complained that winning the war in Ukraine can not just be done with motivation and morale. The Ukrainian president was speaking with U.S. senator Chris Coons, Dutch prime minister Mark rutte, and former British prime minister Boris Johnson, the meeting was held on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, zelensky used an earlier speech to leaders that had gathered in this whisky resort of Davos to urge his allies not to hesitate. His supplies or western tanks must outpace another invasion of Russian tanks. He also argued that by helping Ukraine, they would also be protecting themselves. Restoration of security and peace in Ukraine must outpace Russia's attacks on security and peace in other countries. I am Karen Chammas

"And we need to rein in the anti climate activities. Rain and I just have to play this tape and then I Savannah I'll get your reaction just to show you the lack of credibility Al Gore has on the topic. This is Al Gore in 2009, saying that the polar ice may be gone in 5 years, play cut 38. And some of the models suggest to doctor maslowski that there is a 75% chance that the entire north polarized cap during summer during some of the summer months could be completely ice free within the next 5 to 7 years. The next 5 to 7 years census in 2009 not only is it true the opposite is true, Savannah, your reaction on the focus of environmentalism. So what I want to bring up with this is the concept of mental health because I keep asking people on the ground, hey, let's talk about the climate crisis and they keep bringing up mental health. And the reason why I am bringing this up is because, like I said, previously, all of these statistics and all of this propaganda that has been fed to the masses is leading to honestly a depopulation effort. We have an entire generation now that is afraid to procreate and have children afraid to eat meat, afraid of farming, afraid of the very fossil fuels that fuel this entire world. So, you know, again, this is just one of the most effective tools we saw with COVID, we saw the fear mongering around that. We saw how easily people gave up their rights and freedoms. When they became afraid, and that is why they continue to push the climate crisis on us that have been debunked to time and time again. Savannah Hernandez live from Davos be safe and continue your great reporting. Thank you so much and check out sav says on YouTube, do a great job. Thank you. Thanks, Charlie. Email us your thoughts freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com, the World Economic Forum is continuing to meet as they are going through their different plans and policy proposals to usher in a one world government. Elon Musk has spoken out against the World Economic Forum. He said, this is something people did not vote for. It's not something they want, and it's incredibly dangerous. Elon Musk is correct. Notice Elon was not invited to the World Economic Forum. The World Economic Forum is meeting here. If you do not fight evil early evil will metastasize. It will grow into something larger than itself that could capture institutions and with it your society. I want to go to this cut here, and then I want to try to get to a call or two. Remember, they, at the World Economic Forum, they need a crisis. That's why they call it the poly crisis. Tyrants are in need of a crisis. When a crisis occurs, you're allowed to have a lot of power act decisively act unilaterally, take people's freedoms and liberties away. Never let a crisis go to waste, you're allowed to have emergency powers. Like we saw in COVID, tyrants and dictators were almost never say everything's fine. No, they need a crisis to be able to expand their Leviathan over your life 30 days to slow the spread 90 day COVID emergency. We are still living under emergency use authorization powers so they always need to try to find a new crisis to justify their power grab over your life. They are crisis hunters, crisis creators, crisis seekers. If everything was just fine and things got back down to normal and the temperature went down and the blood pressure went down, a dictator a despot would not be able to justify their existence. No, they're trying to enter you into a mindset where the crisis is perpetual and the only way to get rid of the crisis is to give me more power. Play cut 56. Scientifically, this is not a climate crisis. We are now facing something deeper, mass extinction, air pollution, undermining ecosystem functions. Really putting humanity's future at risk. This is a planetary crisis. This is a safety crisis, but above all it is also a justice crisis. Many areas in the world are uninhabitable. This uninhabitable zone is increasing. If we continue with our greenhouse gas emissions, then by 2070, as many as 3 billion people will live in uninhabitable zones. So wait, it's a just this crisis that the climate crisis is an existential crisis. And it's not just that, it's also a spiritual crisis. What is not it's a planetary crisis, it's every type of crisis you can have, which of course they need to say that. You think they're going to go to the meeting and say, actually, it's time for us to give away power. Actually, COVID is not what we thought it was. No longer do lockdowns, the vaccine was a failure. Sorry guys, here's your power back. Would you expect that from, of course, not? There are always going to get up on stage with some sort of strange bizarre abstract word Taylor, like a PR firm tailored description of, well, now we have a planetary crisis. We have an existential crisis. No, but now there's this woman, there's this, oh yeah, the hat woman, it's also a spiritual crisis, which actually I agree. That's actually the root of all of this. They actually said something that was true, but they just got to add it into the mix. Play cut 62. And also, our faith leaders, they know that this crisis is much more than physical and environmental schisms. We have a deeply wounded spirit as a people that is in desperate need of healing and restoration. And we must look to our almighty creator to find our proper place in humanity schism. It's a schism. Okay, I want to get to a quick call here. Craig from Michigan, a question about Davos, Craig, thank you for calling in. What's your question? Yeah, I just wanted to ask you if you knew anything about Gretchen Whitmer's. Part there. He had any video on her speech because we're in a bad way here in Michigan. And we got these very bad people running on state here. Yeah, thank you for the call, Craig. I have not seen anything from Whitmer, but I do find it interesting that she is going to Davos. I haven't seen her on a panel. I'm sure something's going to surface soon. We saw JB pritzker. But isn't it interesting that the person who has the state that oversees auto manufacturing is also in Davos, it's intentional. They need to try to get all of the civic governmental and domestic leaders in harmony of their agenda to try to transition. Remember everything to them as a transitory to smash what is and to try to create what is to come, but the only way you do that is through this messy dialectic process of transition and having the governor of Michigan involved is a key partner in that. It's probably one of the great disappointments I had in the midterm election cycle, the fact that Tudor Dixon didn't win and Gretchen Whitmer, the wild, the wicked witch of the west was able to win reelection, and I put win in quotes.

"Savannah Hernandez, who is on the ground at the World Economic Forum, Savannah, welcome to the program. Thank you so much for having me on Charlie. What are you seeing? What are you hearing on the ground? What is the vibe in Davos? Well, one, the first thing Charlie is that it's absolutely freezing over here, okay? So, you know, we heard about global warming for years, but I have been freezing. I'm not joking. I was interviewing people on the streets because I wanted to get the mindset over here. And of course, the climate crisis at the forefront for the World Economic Forum every single time they convene for their meeting. I was speaking to one attendee who told me that there is no snow on the Swiss mountains as a result of the climate crisis, I would beg to differ there's snow everywhere. It's absolutely freezing. So just an update on that, but a couple points here, Charlie, that I wanted to bring to viewers bring to the show. Now attendees and members of the World Economic Forum that want to join these meetings are of course being PCR tested. Now this is not surprising to any of the audience members, but this is really interesting to me because if you reject this PCR test, then your digital ID badge is deactivated and you're not allowed access into the meeting. And I think that this is very telling of where the World Economic Forum's mindset is at, right? For the population that might not want to adhere to their net zero policies that might not want to adhere to a lot of what they're pushing on the world population if you don't want to capitulate to them if you don't agree with what they're saying, then they are simply try to excommunicate you from society. So very interesting mindset with that. So you were reporting live from the streets of Davos and they're talking about potentially having more hate speech laws. A focus of this year's meeting seems to be trying to restrict dialog and freedom of expression. Can you talk a little bit about that? It seems as if all roads lead back to the relentless crusade on our ability to speak. Absolutely, Charlie, I have really been looking into the World Economic Forum and everything that they stand for. And they're a very restrictive organization. Now they are trying to come down on us via speech because they want to be able to control our thoughts. They want to be able to control our opinions. One of the reasons why the climate crisis is consistently put to the forefront with these people is because it is a great tool for your propaganda essentially and we know that a population that is afraid is a subservient population that is willing to give up their rights and freedoms. And so if we look to the hate speech laws and what is being passed with this, what is one thing that we're not allowed to speak out against, the climate crisis. This is one thing that we're never allowed to push back against. And when we're not allowed to really inform the population about how, okay, back in the 1970s, it was the ice age that we were potentially going to be going through global cooling in the 80s. It was then global warming. We were also dealing with a hole in the ozone layer, which actually closed up, and now it's climate change. Now we are with these new hate speech laws, not going to be able to inform the public about this history of climate change, how it has been used to fear monger to the public for decades, and again, this is just another control tactic. I totally agree. I want to play a piece of tape here of just some of the chatter. And again, turning point USA are turning point USA team is live on the ground in Davos. And it's quite a quite an effort to get there. And so we're very thankful for that. I want to play a piece of tape here. Let me find it. So it's Brian stelter, I believe.

To speak to the Adam and Rebecca issue, though, because obviously there have been lots of questions raised about their ability to manage a business. Sure. Well, first of all, they've brought in a management team, which is running the day to today business, an incredible powerhouse trio that we're excited to work with super closely and have been nothing but impressed by so far. But I think Adam and Rebecca's vision is a key part of the story and that's really what gave birth to the company. We're very excited to work with them. I think they have an incredible vision for it and really want to do something great environmentally here. Ariana, we want to thank you. Congratulations on the new fund and look forward to following your progress. Thanks again. Thanks so much. Cheese will be next. Next on squawk pod we're getting more on the metaverse and on tech innovation in general, from Accenture CEO Julie sweet. As we think about our business and what we're doing with clients every conversation is how do I use technology to save money? How do I use technology to create new growth opportunities through new business model? You're listening to squawk pod where today we're zeroing in on all things metaverse. Here's Andrew Ross Sorkin with Accenture CEO Julie sweet on the hillside in Davos Switzerland. Got some good reason to talk about business, the world and everything that's going on in the global economy. Joining us right now is Accenture CEO. Julie sweet, who has a better perspective on this than most, you're talking to people from all over. How many employees do you have no total? 700,000. 700,000. So we've been talking all morning as we have, I mean, there's a lot of handwriting going on here about a recession, inflation and the like. Do you have a different take? Do you have a more positive optimistic take? Or you think we're in the soup? I think that there's a lot of uncertainty about the economy, but there's one certainty that's embedded in every conversation I'm having is that IT spending is going to continue. IT spending up. So yes, and right now it's 5% of GDP. It's an estimated to be 7% by 2030. And so as we think about our business and what we're doing with clients, every conversation is, how do I use technology to save money? How do I use technology to create new growth opportunities or new business model? And that is continued here, particularly around ESG and sustainability. But since you live in the IT world, how concerned are you, or maybe actually this is an opportunity for you. All of these startup companies that may, unfortunately, not have enough cash to survive a downturn. And all of these stock options, which are underwater, is that an opportunity for you to pick people off? Is that an opportunity for what happens? You know, there's a war on talent. Right. So we see ourselves as being a great place because we're doing innovation. We have a business in space. So when you can tell somebody, hey, you can come here and you can work on space, right? You can work on AI. You can create the metaverse. And so in this kind of an environment, I think we're an even more attractive employer because we have the innovation and we have a lot of security. So the other topic besides recession and inflation and Bitcoin that everyone seems to talk about here is the metaverse. And you are a believer in the metaverse, like in a big, big way. Well, on board, a 150,000 people, their first day at Accenture, they will go into the Accenture metaverse. And when they're there, they're not just going to talk to each other. They're going to go visit an innovation hub. They're going to learn all about Accenture. Hold on. So when you say that you're onboarding, a 150,000, and a 150,000 people are doing this. Over the year. Over the year, and they're going into the metaverse. What is the extension metaverse look like? So it's a place. It's a place. So you go into the metaverse. You will meet up with other people. So right now, when you do the Internet, it's one way. And are you talking Oculus using a horizontal headset and we use 2D, because you actually can experience the metaverse involved with 2D and 3D. Okay. But when you are talking on a team's call, only one person can talk at the same time. When you go to the Accenture metaverse, it's like being at Davos in a conference. You talk to the person near you. You can't hear the people farther away. And you can move around the room. And then we can port you. So in the middle of the pandemic, when we couldn't take clients to our innovation hubs, I would host meetings with clients in our metaverse. Take into lead Julie or you like a cartoon character. I'm an avatar. You're an avatar. Right? And I get to pick my wardrobe. I have to tell you that there's not enough choices yet. But I'm going to Avatar. And it's so real and the fact that you can like, I can come up to you metaverse and not hear someone else. That you almost forget that you're not physically with someone. And we've actually built, I hope you go to it. We've built in partnership with Microsoft. And Klaus and the World Economic Forum, we built the global collaboration village here at the forum to reimagine how we're going to collaborate, because as great as being here is, you can't actually immerse yourself in experience. So if you go take a tour of it, we can take you to sub Saharan Africa, and you can see the effects of climate change. And you can be talking to people about it. And you can do this across the globe. Becky has a question for you back in New York. This is like our own metaverse actually called the squawk verse. Yeah. Julie, that's really interesting. I just wonder, I mean, is that the end of big conferences like Davos? You're in Davos right now. What's different about what you can offer versus what you're doing right now in Davos? So what's different is the immersive element of it. So the limitation we have here, Becky, is that we're not actually able to go see this. So think about refugees. Imagine if you're taking people to a refugee camp, you're meeting the refugees, you're understanding the real conditions. And then your problem solving. So it's not an alternative to, but it's also not the same as saying is what you're doing here. It allows in an immersion. And actually there's science, the reason we onboard a 150,000 people is the science says that you have 30% greater retention in immersive learning. Now you can't do that for hours. So they're not spending hours. But there's actual learning impacts as well. Julie, I want to thank you. We'll see you in the metaverse. It sounds like. Absolutely. And we have so many more to talk about. It's kind of crazy that you're doing that. That's where it all is. Thank you. That's the podcast for today. Thank you for listening this entire week.

"In years past Sarah Katie Andrew and the rest of the CNBC Davos crew have sat on a roof in frigid temperatures bundled with hand warmers to chat with the biggest games of business and politics about the world order and innovation and the fresh Alpine air. But this year, a lot of things have been different. It's a little bit different having this event in May after two years of pandemic than the typical January captains of the universe event that we've seen in the past. It has felt very different, not just because the weather and the dress code is totally different, but because we're seeing each other for the first time. So I think there's a lot of excitement around face to face interactions. There's really no replacement for that. Everyone had enough of zoom and when it comes to meeting the top leaders in business and politics and the economy and civil society, everyone in one place, there's no substitution. So I think everyone's really happy to be here. But at the same time, it's a really uncertain time for the global economy. And there is a lot of pessimism and negativity. We're looking at a war in Ukraine, which is the less than three hour flight from here in Davos. And it's changing all sorts of geopolitical relationships. It's elevated tension significantly. We're potentially looking at a global recession and a spike in inflation that's causing a lot of harm on developing economies in particular. I did a panel today with someone from a development bank in Africa where they're looking at more than 13% food inflation on already stretched finances. So you are seeing these pain points. But at the same time, everyone's really happy to be here talking about it together and it makes you feel like global cooperation or at least dialog is alive and well, which is what Davos always is, but it's nice to do it in good weather and it's nice to do it after a two year hiatus. A lot has changed in those two years and top of mind for everyone is the war in Ukraine. This week, Russian forces continue to press in on Ukraine and on Wednesday alone, they staged dozens of attacks, killing at least 6 people. Watching from honestly not so far away, German Chancellor Olaf scholz spoke to the Davos community, and his comments made global headlines. We can not allow Putin to win his war, and I firmly believe that he will not win it. And mayor of Kyiv vitali Klitschko also came to Davos to deliver his message from the Ukrainian people to the international community. Main priority are starting my speech main priority for every Ukrainian for every citizen saw a hometown safety. Mayor Klitschko's brother of Vladimir also attended the forum. That's who you'll hear from today. He gave Sarah eisen an idea of what life is like back in Kyiv. There were depressing parts of the interview where made you pause, I didn't even know what to say. But there were hopeful parts of the interview as well. And that was when I asked him when it was like in cube right now because he said three months ago, it was very scary and dangerous and everyone was hunkering down and a city of 5 million people was completely empty and a lot of people were fleeing and there were sirens and air raids and bombing and now people are back and they've defended Kyiv. And we've seen world leaders. We've seen members of Congress go there and walk freely with president zelensky. There have even been stories of remote workers gathering at cafes and Kyiv, logging into their jobs. But as kiv residents attempt to find normalcy in the middle of a war zone, the world is watching. Closely. Russia has for many years sent a delegation of leaders many companies. You've seen a lot of the traditional oligarchs, you've seen people from the Russian energy companies come here in the past. But this year the World Economic Forum did not allow any Russian delegation to Kim at all. Is that what sort of message do you think that sends? To the global community. It was noticeable because, as you mentioned, the Russians are always here and full force. They at least wear the best parties. And they always have the best Caviar at those parties. And it was obviously a strong statement to Russia that it is not included in a global dialog in the global community. But at the same time, you have members of the Ukrainian delegation that are here at the foreign ministers here. President zelensky addressed mister Davos on video to a standing ovation here. You're playing this short on time. They're calling on the world community and world leaders to do more. They're calling on Europe to have an oil embargo and there's still some struggles with that with that situation. They're calling on investors globally to put money into Ukraine and pull it out of Russia. So there's more that can be done, but clearly it's a statement. It's a statement of unity against Russia from a lot of the world's most powerful people. You spoke to one of the cleats co brothers, two twins, from Kyiv, Vladimir. He has sort of given up a very different career to throw himself into the cause in Ukraine now. Tell me about your conversation. So he is top ranked heavyweight boxer. Very widely decorated. And international superstar and celebrity turned freedom fighter essentially. He's in less than in the Ukrainian army, his brother is the mayor of Kyiv. As you said, and they are staying in Kyiv with this fight, I asked him what he was doing here in Davos. And not in Ukraine. He said that he's left two times since the war broke out about three months ago. Once was to meet with the German Chancellor and the other was to come here because he thought and his brother came as well. It was so important to spread the message to keep supporting Ukraine and his bigger message, I would say, is that Ukraine's fight is the world's fight. And Ukraine is fighting for freedom, and he also had a lot of warnings about the consequences and what could be coming with Russia, because he says the world hasn't been paying attention to the signals from Russia, going back to Crimea and Putin's language before then. And so he had some interesting and scary warnings for what could come next. He also spoke to me, he said, and has been speaking to media because he wants it to stay in the forefront of western media. And he really made such a point on telling me how important the media was to tell the right story because if you look at what's happening in Russia, the propaganda there and how they're explaining this war from Ukrainian perspective is just ludicrous and is completely wrong. So I think what you'll hear is that he has come with a very powerful message and after Davos, he's going to drive back into your brain to the war zone, which is really sort of unbelievable juxtaposition when you think about it. I asked him, how did it feel to be here? He said, totally surreal. First of all, I'm curious why you come here to Davos in the middle of the war. Now, in Davos, two worlds are colliding, meeting each other. On political side, the leaders of the governments and on the economical side, the lyrics of business world. And it's so important to work together in one front against this Russian aggression and the war in Ukraine. Because without isolation, on the political side, and on economical side of Russia, these wars will keep on going. Because every cent that Russia is gaining on trading oil gas coal, whatever the trade is, is going to be spent on the military equipment and paid for the soldiers that fight and kill us today in Ukraine. Do you feel like your message is being heard? Europe is.

"Are here. Brought to you by Andrew and Todd a Sierra Pacific mortgage for personalized loan services you can count on, go to Andrew and Todd dot com, the wonderful Andrew and Todd dot com. Lot to go through this week, action packed week, and we are going to start with the most important thing happening in the world right now. All eyes are on Davos. Davos is a mountain town for the elite and the ruling class in eastern Switzerland. When you hear about Davos in the coming days, it is the meeting of the World Economic Forum. The World Economic Forum is a member organization of prime ministers of heads of government of treasury secretaries of celebrities, business leaders, people of influence who want to remake the world in their image. You heard president Donald Trump back in 2016 say over and over again that we need to stop globalism. Well, Davos is the center of global government. Davos is where the most powerful people in the world engage in almost sandbox type behavior and they throw around ideas on how they want the world to operate. Some of them might seem radical at one period of time and then all of a sudden we go through something dramatic and unprecedented and those very predictions that were made years prior all of a sudden seem to be in closer grass. We're going to go through in great detail. What is the World Economic Forum? Who's in charge of the World Economic Forum? What are the stated goals of the World Economic Forum? Because right now as we are doing that program, this program, they are whining and dining and having martini hour and champagne sipping, enjoying how the global agenda in some parts of the world is closer to being ushered in. The World Economic Forum has some specific stated goals. And we're going to go through all of them. But what's interesting about the World Economic Forum is they hide in plain sight. You see, instead of trying to do it all secretly, the elites of the world said, well, what if we actually lead with our greatest vulnerabilities? You see, the World Economic Forum led by Klaus Schwab, a German engineer, they engage in their activity in forums and in panels and speeches instead of smoke filled rooms or private meetings. Those happen as well. But you see, they've decided to design a paradoxical communication strategy. Where the treachery is televised. Listen to Klaus Schwab and cut three, say the future here is built by us by a powerful community as you are here in this room. The stakeholders of larger communities as we collaborate. Now for those of you that are James Bond fans as I am, I love the James Bond series for a variety of different reasons until they've gone woke, which seems they are going woke. There is a, I think rather entertaining and well written James Bond film called Specter. The villain in that film is acted out by an individual by the name of Christoph Waltz, who is also German, and he dresses the same as Klaus Schwab the entire movie is about how the world elites all meet hiding in plain sight at opera houses and other public areas to design how they are going to take over the world..

"Today on squawk pod, the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Today's big interview from the Alps, chief financial officer of Google parent Alphabet, Ruth porat. One of the important elements is, regardless of markets, make sure you're focused on long-term growth because those who don't actually miss that and try and catch up. Weathering text market volatility and regulator scrutiny and planning for the long term. When you're starting with deep computer science and a set of opportunities, look at cloud. We believe we are very much still in early innings. Plus, the other international story that got us walking today, China reacts to President Biden's comments on Taiwan. Our Beijing bureau chief Eunice yu. Obviously, this looks like a way for the U.S. to pressure companies to diversify away from China. It's Monday, May 23rd, and a very global squawk pod begins right now. In three, two, one, two or three. Good morning, everybody. Welcome to squawk box here on CNBC. We are live from the NASDAQ market site in Times Square. I'm Becky quick along with Joe kernan, and Andrew Ross Sorkin is reporting live from Davos this morning, Andrew. It looks beautiful. This is like the hills are alive there. It is like the sound of music, guys, and you are missed. I should tell you, it's a 67° here. So you wouldn't need all of our winter wear. In fact, I think everybody's sort of struggling with what to wear here because I think people brought all the wrong stuff. But take a look around, you can probably even hear the sounds of music behind us. The bell's ringing as it is noon here in Davos, Switzerland, but we've got a huge lineup, lots of folks making their way here. A little bit different than in the past, but I think we're going to get some insights into what's going on in the economy around the globe. Lots of concerns, of course, about inflation about crane, Russia, this news this morning, the president commented on with Taiwan already making its way around. President zelensky kicked off the Davos session this morning, piping in from Ukraine this morning. Andrew, what's the mood there in Davos? The moon, I gotta tell you guys, and it's sort of sad. It's depressing is what it is. The Davos consensus and we've talked about whether the Davos consensus is ever right or to contrarian indicator, but we got here late yesterday, went to dinner immediately and almost to a man or a woman around the table, there was a view that we are headed for something worse than at least what the markets are reflecting right now. And so I would just say a lot, a lot of concern. Having said that, this is a place where there has always been a lot of hand wringing, as you know, people talk about what worries and concerns the most. So perhaps that's what's reflected in terms of those conversations. But we've also been here all together when people have been remarkably positive. I remember when we were here, frankly, just before the pandemic began. And I think there was some positivity from some. Just before. Have you been briefed by the CDC? Are the words about a pandemic at this point? No, we're not at all. And we have it totally under control. It's one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It's going to be just fine. Days before, I don't know when we had the first case in Washington. And Paul Tudor Jones. Washington state, right? Washington state. Paul Tudor Jones said, coronavirus. And then that was and we've been in it ever since. I've been into soup ever since throwing a war and another potential video ever since. Yeah, and a monkey pox, hopefully, which is not going to be on. And a monkey box. I will tell you the monkeypox issue is something people are talking about here as a COVID as well as you might imagine. There is a testing regime that they've set up, but we will see how successful that testing regime turns out to be. But that does seem to be the mood here. But you're missed. Both of you are missed. I would tell you wherever I go, I get a say hello to Becky and Joe. Where are they? So I say this. We'll be back soon enough. We're waiting for the snow 6 months and it's like a blink and it'll be here. When is 2020 23 edition is January? Yeah. Maybe 700. You watch this hang out. I know you like that. I know you like that. I don't know. Right here. I would love to see this weather. I actually would. Yeah, I would love to see Davos in the spring. The Alps with Julie Andrews with watching everything in bloom, that's kind of gorgeous. That's a nicer backdrop, Andrew. It was Austria. But the von trapps are around probably. Still to come on squawk pod a rare interview with alphabet's chief financial officer, Ruth porat. One of the critical elements in everything we do on regulation is you need to constructively engage with regulators because it's really key to go through. So what are the unintended consequences? Google's rough stock ride Capitol Hill scrutiny and what's next for Internet innovation. I'm Sarah eisen, from the open to the close. CNBC has you covered. From what's driving the market moves to how investors are reacting, we'll guide you through each trading session and bring you some of the biggest names and newsmakers in the business. Be sure to follow and listen to CNBC's closing bell podcast today. Welcome back to squawk pod where Andrew Ross Sorkin is sitting down at the first World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland since January of 2020. It's a huge gathering of the world's biggest, most influential names in business and international politics. So naturally, we go. The interview we're bringing you today is a very rare sit down with the chief of financial officer of Alphabet, Ruth porat. There was plenty of ground to cover starting with a rough market year for alphabet and for the tech sector at large, shares of Google are down more than 20% year to date. Here danger. I think this may be your first time on squawk box. It is. It's great to be here. Thank you for thank you for coming in. You've been at Google for a very long time now, but you were also wearing Morgan Stanley. You've seen the economy and you've been around the block quite some time. Help us understand what you think is happening right now. I think everybody here is trying to make sense of where we are. Is this 2001? Is this the 1970s? What do you think is happening? Well, I think having been around the block actually helps because the global macro environment is clearly complicated. It keeps shifting. You're talking about it every day. And at Google, we're clearly not immune to it. I made this point on our earnings call as well. The most important metric to look at and when you're thinking about our ads business is actually GDP growth. But we know that we can't control the macro environment. What we can control is our ability to deliver on all the exciting opportunities ahead of us. And what's made Google extraordinary for all these years is this deep roots in computer science. And we think they're continuing to be extraordinary opportunities to deliver for consumers around the globe for our partners, for governments. And so we're continuing to invest in invest quite aggressively for long-term value creation. But even, but I assume you must sit around, I don't know, maybe virtually now and say, okay, we think the next 18 months is going to be more challenged. And by the way, more channels may be good for a big company with a great balance sheet like yours because there might be lots of opportunities. Do you save yourself okay? Here is this moment. Maybe we're going to be starting to buy other things. There's other things going to happen here? Well, I think when you look through it, it does come back to the point that cycles come and go, whatever they may be. And when you look at the set of opportunities, we're continuing to invest. So core to your question, we always try and look at portfolio optimization and make sure that we're making the right choices. And we're continuing to do that. But I think at the highest level, one of the important elements is, regardless of markets, make sure you're focused on long-term growth because those who.

"But we don't have the time to waste. So we really need to put more and more efforts into carbon sequestration since that is something that we can do today capturing carbon from the atmosphere and reducing the carbon debt that we have in order to be more and more sustainable in a short term. When you think of Finland, you think of trees, so I'm guessing trees and planting of trees plays a large role in that sequestration plan. Absolutely. And while Finland has a lot of forest, I don't know if you've been here. You know, we have a couple towns and then we have lakes and forests. So obviously we already have quite a big carbon sink. But we need to not just look at Finland or Sweden or Norway. We need to look globally and really that's the low tech solution that we can do in vast amounts already today everywhere around the globe. But at the moment the hindrance in the development of carbon sequestration is that it's actually not a tool in the regulatory box for companies to reduce their climate impact on a regulatory space, it is very much on the focus of voluntary, but when anything is voluntary, it will not take as rapid development as it would if it is actually under the compliance markets that we have. Whether it's emission trading system or whether it's some regulatory mandates to CO2 from energy. That's what we need to get so that we can really ramp up the carbon sequestration globally. So in Davos, I guess you're hoping to have the ears of the world's leaders and the people in whose power those decisions are is that one of your key messages that Davos absolutely that's definitely the core of the message that we have to do things that we can do commercially viable and today in large scale. And that's definitely the message to be taken there. We need to be serious about it. We need to act swiftly and create those regulatory places and regulatory markets for carbon sequestration that we really get the large investments into this space because that's really the hope that we have in short term carbon reduction. And in a forum like Davos, what value does the brand of Finland? What does it mean that you're finished company going there, do you think? What impact does that have? Well, I think that can actually be very interesting because there hasn't been really that many finished companies before in Davos. And but then Finland is known to be very sustainable and having very kind of audacious and sustainable ideas. So actually when we're talking about carbon sequestration and carburetor sequestration through forestation, there's quite a lot of knowledge base that we've had and developed over the years as a country and a society into the forestry area. So I believe that it can be a really good brand value of Finland supporting the message and what we're trying to aim there and in Davos really what I've also researched is that carbon sequestration and this and the forestation has been really in the focus over the last couple of years and I really hope to get some good contact points there to really take this wider in the agenda of a global actions.

"The annual World Economic Forum at Davos is finally taking place again from the 22nd to the 26th of May and this year, there's going to be some new participants representatives from 8 cutting edge Finnish companies which are innovating within energy technology, healthcare, and education under the group banner, Finnish flow. The Finns have been working in their characteristically thorough but quiet way in these fields for many years, but their traditionally unassuming approach will no longer do. In recognition of both the urgency and global nature of the problems the Finnish flow companies are addressing, they're aiming to take Davos by storm with their solutions to everything from the green energy transition to helping kids catch up on their COVID struck education. We start with Raphael majeski, CEO of ice eye, a Finnish micro satellite manufacturer that uses data to prevent and assist in natural disasters. More of that in a moment, but first, I ask raffle to tell me a little more about Finnish flow and its Davos debut. I think of it as an initiative, which is designed to bring really and showcase the finish innovation and maybe finish a thought leadership, a Davos, there hasn't really been a lot of Finland in Davis in the past. And it's one of the most important forums to discuss the world matters. There's quite a lot that Finland and the Finnish entrepreneurs and young generation can offer. And what was the selection criteria? They had to be part of a venture. And that venture had to represent an idea of sustainability, high degree of innovation, and basically be of interest to the future of the world. And now that the second criteria which I'm not sure how official this was, but it's clear that Finland wanted to select a representatives of the younger generation. I'm personally 32, and all of the people that go with me are of similar age. And I think World Economic Forum in Davos has actually been known as a forum attended by a specific group of individuals and sort of bringing the younger generation into the debate. It's not only wise, but necessary, really. The Davos demographic does tend towards the over 60s, doesn't it? That is correct, yes. I was trying to find the right way of describing that phenomenon, yes. Well, hopefully you'll bring the average age down a little bit. And how does ice I.
