Tens of Thousands Are Protesting in Belarus

"Let's head over to Belarus and try to understand what's going on over there. The protests are continuing after the election they had on August ninth where the current president, the president who's been there for more than twenty five years Alexander Lukashenko said he won a sixth consecutive term but a lot of the people of Belarus are saying there was huge election fraud. What do you do in the people start to rise up against you you deploy in the the troops essentially. And like we've seen here with the troops to the streets, it's gotten pretty violent. I mean much more violent they're. They've arrested over seven thousand people and two thousand and hope and released so far. Those who are still locked up our allegedly going through beatings and tortures in jails. So what do you do if you're Lukashenko and have those allegations against you? Of course, you signed an order awarding three hundred medals to law enforcement for impeccable service. During this deployment, the protests have gotten stronger this week since thousands of factory workers have begun walking off the job to join the protests. Apparently Bellarusse produces a fifth of the world's potash fertilizer. So when these factory workers who are really the backbone of these countries, the manufacturing countries, that's a big deal. The head of the independent miners union said, the authorities should understand that they are losing control only Lukashenko's resignation and punishment of those in charge of rigging and beatings can call must down we will not back down the strike will continue to grow until he steps down. So it doesn't sound like these are coming down anytime soon and actually sounds like they're heating up a bit Lukashenko. I came under fire when he jailed his opponent, the person who running against, you just put them in prison after that his wife stepped in to replace him. But shortly after the election results, she had to flee the country because I mean rightly. So I imagine she assumed they were gonNA. Come for her to the key that's allowed Lukashenko to get away with this thus far. But who knows how much longer is that Russia is their closest ally in they have offered unspecified security assistance to Lukashenko Putin has also told German chancellor. Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron to stay away in avoid putting pressure on the government in Belarus. So he's trying to tell them to stay out of it but there's a lot of these NATO countries including those on the western border Belarus saying, Hey, man we can't do nothing about this. We have to take some action. It's hard to see what the end game is here. I can't emphasize enough how notable it is that the factory workers are starting to join in I do have a sneaky suspicion that Donald trump is taking comprehensive notes about what Lukashenko is doing

Lebanon's government steps down in wake of Beirut blast

"This week, Lebanon's government resigned amid mounting anger over the explosion that devastated parts of Beirut and left more than 200 people dead. The announcement was made on television on Monday evening, Courtney Is this an act of self sacrifice herself preservation. S o. I mean, the announcement was not what you would expect if a prime minister actually came out and berated Lebanon's ruling a political leader for fostering and promoting corruption. And said, You know, we tried to do our best but way we can't. We can't fight it. Um, and it's it's interesting because he's only been in that position. For what about eight months now he's only been in there this year. So I the the problem is You know, the president has asked the government to stay in a caretaker capacity while new government is formed. So the we're still going to see these same people running the government for most likely for awhile, because the way that they form a government there is if it's anything like what they went through last year in 2019 It's going to take months while they while they the Parliament determines who is going to be a new prime minister. But the issue is even with a new government thes. These underlying problems of corruption are going to still Be there. The issues that the people in Lebanon have with their government didn't start with this horrific explosion. Last explosions last week they began last year last October. Lebanon's currency began just losing value dramatically losing value and protests began Then since then, their currencies lost about 70% of its value. Poverty is soaring. The World Bank is projecting that more than half of the country's population will be considered poor by the end of this year. And and the explosions at the port. This is devastating explosion. Only exacerbated that, as did Corona virus. So the people there are desperate for good leadership, and the reality is the way that the government is set up. There's going to be a parliaments goingto have to appoint a new prime minister. But there's going to be delays. There's going to be gridlock and doing that. And the new government is not going to be going to see some end the systemic corruption that the people are are desperate to see end and to see some real leadership in their country. In what world is the international community have to play here? No. There were concerns about eight coming in tow Lebanon and that aid being misused. But according to the Economist, 11 these currency has lost 80% of its value since October. Inflation is at 90%. As Courtney said, people are deeply in trouble. So what's the path ahead? Absolutely, You know, the international community has a huge role to play potentially, you know, we saw in the kind of immediate aftermath when these protests could have began. You know, against the corruption and mismanagement and just incompetence. Really. Of the Lebanese government. We saw even you know thousands of of Lebanese signing a petition literally asking France to basically reimpose the mandate and take over control of the country for the next 10 years. Right, Remember, you know, France used to have the mandate over Lebanon and run things. The idea that people would essentially beg for a return to colonial era rule is just is such a stark Kind of clarifying moment to realize just how bad things have gotten Lebanon and you know the international community we saw we saw the French president Emmanuel Macron. Come, Teo, the streets of Beirut and walk around and people were literally saying, Please help us. Please help us so France, in particular, has a huge role to play here in terms of how they help aid how they help work with the government to form potentially new structures, But but we'll see what happens. A lot of this depends on what the government and the political players, including Hezbollah do inside Lebanon.

Beirut Digs for Survivors as Death Toll in Explosion Rises

"Responders in Beirut are still looking for survivors after a massive explosion Tor, the city's port on Tuesday, at least 150 people are dead and another 5000 are injured. Hundreds of thousands are homeless. Indira. What do we know about how this happened? Well, we know that there was an explosion that seems to have been two explosions on dit was really caused by a 2750 ton stockpile of ammonium nitrate. Which is a really explosive chemical that is often used as a fertilizer. To have this amount of ammonium nitrate stored in a port is really kind of stunning and I'm sure we'll get to it, but it's linked to protests that we've now already seen in Beirut among Lebanese who are already upset about government corruption. Government mismanagement, political and economic problems. And this just looks like one thing on top of that. That since 2013 so we're talking seven years this ammonium nitrate has been stored in a warehouse at the port when a Russian owned vessel stopped in Beirut, and then the ship was abandoned. So how is it that for seven years this has been sitting there. And no one has done anything about it. Even though Port officials had apparently written many memos asking, how is this going to be disposed of? I mean, just to give listeners a general sense. This is essentially like fertilizer, which you know, we know is quite explosive. And National Geographic had a really interesting story out yesterday where we talked about Just all the chemistry behind this and why it was so deadly and it's happened before in other places in this country, and by the way listeners may remember the horrible Oklahoma City terrorist attack that was an intentional bombing, but it was made out for the same chemical ammonium nitrate will French President Emmanuel Macron visited Beirut on Thursday to mixed reactions. For the past years. Mick Howard. Lebanon's leaders responding Very defensively. I mean, this is a level of governance, apathy, governance and aptitude that that is simply difficult to comprehend. You know, as Indira was saying, this has been In the port for six or seven years, senior Customs officials are saying claiming that they warned about the danger of having so much Ammonium nitrate at the port, a handful of times the judiciary onto port officials, and they got no response. So many people in Lebanon are talking about a level of criminal negligence. Today, authorities say that they're going to Interview the head of the port, the head of customs on We'll see what comes of that. But at this point, the Lebanese people are so sick. Of a level of corruption and the love of kind of a corrupt core of the entire political class. And that's why this was recently compared to share noble. The idea that this exposes that corrupt core of the government could lead to government and falling again. We saw the government fall again fall last year, replaced by a technocratic successor. This year. Or we could just see increased anger that leads to no reform. But at the very least, this is proving eso awfully so tragically, some of the in confidence at the core of the Lebanese government Nancy talk a little bit more about what comes next with the layer the level of anger so high with the government even before this disaster, What are you going to be watching for in the region? That's a great question. And I should say I have almost bias has spent five holidayed in Lebanon as recently as last year and holds a very special place in my heart and so to see the devastation is just breathtaking. You got it earlier. You know this is a country where people were suffering tremendously before this explosion. This is a country ruled the value of its current had dropped by 80% in the last year. People were hungry. The Lebanese cannot afford. To do the kinds of repairs to their country to their city. In the wake of this bombing, many could not afford to eat before this, And so I think long term, the question becomes, Will we see fundamental changes in the government? In the system in Lebanon because we've heard about port officials being on house arrest or having their assets frozen, but those air sort of on the edges in terms of the issues in Lebanon, the fundamental issues governance. You were asking earlier about the Lebanese reaction on Ly, the Lebanese mayor has walked the streets. There's been no resignations. There's been no sort of out point, even the trash that people are gathering from the debris pile up, and there's no government trash service to pick it up. And so these air Corps problems with the the governance of the country, and so I think for the Lebanese unless there are fundamental changes to that Such that when someone reports thousands of tons of nitrate is near the city center that it's dealt with and not ignored repeatedly over and over again, and so, what we're looking for is whether we're going to see fundamental changes and how the system Operates.

"Some exercises in perspective the IRA bomb which severely damaged Canary Wharf in London in Nineteen ninety-six was estimated at just over one ton of ammonium nitrate Timothy McVeigh's bomb which demolished a federal government building in Oklahoma City in nineteen ninety-five was just over two tons of the same material. The boss which erupted in Beirut's port on Tuesday was estimated at two. Thousand seven hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. One of the biggest peacetime non nuclear explosions in history as Bhai. Route begins the barely imaginable task of cleaning up and is understandably enough growing tear gas was fired yesterday at protesters near the parliament building I'm joined. Now by Lila Milana, Allen France twenty four's correspondent in Beirut Leyla. First of all, you have been visiting the port which was the epicenter of the explosion. I can't begin to imagine where you would even describe such scene but I'm going to ask you to have a crack at doing that the scene is as you say, almost indescribable does smoke still rising from the charred MBA's off. Destroyed packing crates destroyed shelving and it says every kind of. Utility things you'd expect to see in shops. Twisted. Washing machines on the floor items from pharmacies because this of course port, this is the one thirty functional in Lebanon imposed everything and everything was stored than in the center. You have the remains of these enormous grain silos that carried the grain for the majority of the country completely destroyed and parts of them. Still collapsing there you have a aid workers desperately trying to dig people of rubble that's thirty meters deep, and the conditions are horrific temperatures of thirty degrees baking hot sun. The air is thick and brown the smell acrid burning metal and plastic. It really is post-apocalyptic and this goes on for over a mile. Entire poor is just smoking twisted metal and daybreak. Nash. have. You got a clear sense of how widespread the damage across Beirutis. How far can you go from the blast without seeing broken windows? So it. was about nine kilometers where we're still doing things like breaking windows the impact of it and having people. That's it really has spread incredibly far, and it's an uneven spread as well because. What's happened is that the grain ciders positioned in a certain way which meant that it protected half of the city of West Beirut, which historically has in many disasters. Conflicts actually born the brunt of of problems in Beirut and actually deflected the majority of the blast towards the East and the south, which is why a famous areas like Gymnasium Ohio Asha fear completely The buildings there obliterated and one of the concerns now is a lot of. Buildings the older buildings in Beirut the few buildings left in the east of in pre-civil war, which were much loved already, quite delicate on the point of collapse yesterday as people were trying to clear the streets constantly civil defense volunteers trying to pull people back away from these buildings with balconies hanging down stone starting to crumble because of course, that's a huge dangerous. People are still sifting through rubble trying to find loved ones that buildings could. New Buildings that had not yet collapsed could collapse on top of the other issue is that the new builds a lot of them are concrete and speaking to an engineer what can happen with concrete is that with a shockwave blast like this concrete cracks easily under pressure and so that can be in tunnel cracks there that you don't know about in can't be seen from the outside, but the make the building unstable and because there's really been. Very, little help from the government with people trying to go back into their homes, clear up and see what they can retrieve and whether their homes are still livable. Many people going back into very unstable buildings and some living there because they have no other former shelter. So a real risk of further injury as buildings might potentially collapse over the next few days very similar to the aftermath of an earthquake, which is what this is compared to. A among the people who was serving the damage in Beirut yesterday was of course, President Emmanuel Macron of France undertaking a extraordinary spontaneous visit. How is that being received? I mean, it's it's understandable enough that Lebanese politicians don't want to interact at a personal level with the public at the not only for their own safety but is it being regarded as strange that the first high profile politician to to take a walkabout should be the president of an entirely different country? Well, it is strange, but it's not being regarded as strange. I was down on the street yesterday when McCone was was walking through glad-handing the crowd I mean, he really was you know playing up to it and was supposed to be going to Baabda Palace, the Presidential Palace to meet with politicians and delayed that for an extra hour on the schedule to stay with Lebanese people in the streets of course, playing up very much. The fact that he was there to see them he'd said before the visit my main priorities to go and be with the people of Lebanon. And extend, solidarity's to them, and then after that I will be dealing with the political varieties speaking to them. So in the streets, he was absolutely mobbed by people he's hugging people shaking hands with them people coming up tim saying, please don't give those politicians any money that corrupt criminals we don't trust them and he responded to one woman I know you don't trust them graffiti everywhere saying don't give one. Euro. To those Michael help us. So he really did make himself as I say a man of the people yesterday I spoke to a couple of young women afterwards. WHO said to me? That man was more of a leader to us in fifteen minutes than any of our politicians have been where all day no one has come to see us where are they wears the help and later in the day after a lot of commentary that. The. Obviously. Lebanese politicians feeding quite shamefaced one. The justice minister did come down to the streets to try and speak to people clearing up and she had water thrown in her face and chanting protest. Immediately, they're not welcome and that people absolutely fading that the government has no interest in safety in their health in their wellbeing and their ability to rebuild hiding away from them as everybody marshals together to try and get things. Back to nothing like normal but something livable at least just to follow that up finally, regular listeners may recall that you and I were speaking on Monday talking about the resignation of Lebanon's foreign minister and that seemed like a pretty big story at the time He's probably ruin his timing at this point but have you seen or heard anything in terms of actual messaging attempts to help or anything from the alleged government of Lebanon or d you kind of assume that they've all got to the point where they just realized the games up nobody really wants to hear from them anymore. It's quite extraordinary. There is honesty nothing happening in terms of that what the government is doing a lot of finger pointing at each other and previous administrations about who's to blame for this they've put everybody associated with the report under house arrest and saying that they're going to find the perpetrators. But of course, everybody's saying somebody else's the perpetrator on what we know so far it seems that for six years has been ongoing negligence at the highest. Level where a several reports were were built up by the head of the port and have customs sent to the government center the Prime Minister's Office the judiciary about the fact that this was a ticking time bomb and something has to be done completely ignored. So the government is going on about this investigation saying they'll find responsible meanwhile three hundred, thousand people in Beirut homeless, five, thousand injured hundreds still missing, and honestly all you can see on the streets is volunteers. The. Lebanese. breath volunteers, obviously with their ambulances civil defence wanting tears, young people armed with spades and rooms marching down the street just going into people's homes into buildings and sweeping up what they can and moving onto the next one cleaning up themselves. They all said to me of course not here we wouldn't expect anything else from them with the only people who can help ourselves and today international aid. Groups coming in different countries, sending their own firefighters medical support in, and still a complete absence of the Lebanese government anywhere except the poor area learn Milana Allen in Beirut thank you very much for joining us.

Lebanese officials have now put a number of higher ups at the port in Beirut under house arrest. New York Post says the 2700 tons of fertilizer believed to have caused the explosion had been confiscated from a Russian businessman seven years ago who had abandoned his cargo ship after making an unscheduled stop. It was all being stored in a warehouse where Reuters says there were repeated warnings to local officials since 2013. It was a disaster in the making.

EU Agrees To Relief Package In Grants, Loans To Bail Out Pandemic-Battered Economies

"The European Union is hoping and out of the box approach will bring some economic stability to the region during the pandemic leaders agreed to a two point one trillion dollar package. What makes this different is for the first time it's offering hundreds of billions of dollars in common debt for more on this game changing agreement. We're bringing in our Brussels bureau chief Dan Michaels Dan. Thanks for being here. My pleasure Dan in our reporting we have called this. Relief package unprecedented. This is a big shift. Perhaps in the way that the EU in the past has really shown it's fiscal power. Indeed this is a dramatic shift for the EU because you members until very recently have avoided giving the central authorities in Brussels the power to issue debt or raise taxes but the economic crisis brought on by the coronavirus has been so dramatic that this was the measure that they have decided on to stop the worst impact of the the recession that is hitting Europe particularly in the most Hard hit southern countries like Italy. Spain and Greece. Let's talk about Italy. Spain and Greece in particular. We spend a lot of time looking at the hardship among those three countries in this case the EU is saying the needs there are greater and were showing priority to the region. What sends out most is that the EU is willing to grant to those countries many of these the same countries that struggled a decade ago in the euro crisis but at that time Germans and other northern European countries only wanted to give them low interest. Loans Italy this time as a people remember was the first European country to be hit by corona virus. Northern Italy was devastated by the Italian. Konami was really hit hard. Spain was also hit very hard by the coronavirus Nelson for Greece because our economies are so dependent on tourism and summer travel and since the global economy has shut down it really has been damaging to those countries and so the economic after-effects even as Europe has reopened have been quite painful.

President Emmanuel Macron and Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel Merckel in particular has had this reputation of being very fiscally conservative yet. She's going out of her comfort zone. German Chancellor Angela Merkel's shift here is one of the most dramatic elements of what's happened over recent days for more than a decade. She has opposed anything like grants to other countries She couldn't imagine giving her attacks. There is money to Italians or Greeks Spaniards with no strings attached. No interest payments. Nothing like that. But a combination of factors over recent months changed our view. One is a French. President Emmanuel macron lobbied her. Very hard on this. She saw how dire the situation was. When when CORONA VIRUS HIT EUROPE IN MARCH BORDERS WERE CLOSED? Supply chains shutdown.

As Gavin Lee explains, You have what's called the frugal for the likes off the Dutch, The Austrians to Swedish, the Danish An add on top of that you have the budget, which is basically how you gets itself through for the next seven years, and what that means you have. An increased amount of money that each country will have to put into the coffers take away the UK from the equation. That means the money that the UK is no longer putting in. Others have to basically dig into their pockets deeper. So that adds to the complexity of all this. Expect this to be I'm told by the senior You saw the mother of all

Without complaint battled not for control and domination. But for liberty democracy and self rule. Let's talk a little bit about the speech itself with ABC's Tom rivers, who was there in the audience, you described President Trump speeches as presidential something very different than we for the president in the past. Right very much. So Sherry, he stuck to the script very well, written. And I think the the salient points that he got a cross he, he referred to two of the US veterans that were on the stage behind him. And he kind of recalled what they had done their, their bravery in the fact that these were young young men, nineteen twenty twenty one years of age and what they had done, and you know that really resonated with, with, with the old that were on the stage, but the younger generation people to reflecting upon what the greatest generation did and comparing it maybe to what's happening today with young people on the other side of the coin was president Akron. The certainly did. Again, very presidential speech, and I guess, a highlight of that was handing out, these, you know, the, the valor medals which is the highest honor in France, five of them to five of the US veterans that game over that involved in D day, and that went down, very, very well indeed. Yeah. And you could see that President Trump was was actually really moved by this anniversary of d day, especially when he and the first lady Emmanuel Macron and his wife walked over where they overlooked Omaha beach, and, and you could see them. It was a beautiful day, unlike seventy five years ago indeed. But it really meant a lot to President Trump seemed like certainly look that way. And also, when they're walking amongst the markers, and, you know, I think it happens to everybody, if you feel it in your chest, you feel it a lump in your throat when you look down at that crosses the stars of David and you look down. You realize these, these were these were people had just come out of high school. Many of them and meant they could not have families gonna have careers. Their life cut short for you. And I really for the generations to come. Yeah. The invasion of Normandy, eventually did lead to the allied victory in World War. Two, let's hear one more line. The President Trump said on that day Normandy, the men behind me will tell you that they are just the lucky ones. As one of them recently, put it all the heroes are buried here. And that's what President Trump wanted to get across the men who are on the stage. There were the ones who made it and all the thousands, who are in that cemetery. Did not exactly exactly and the numbers speak for themselves. Something like four thousand plus on the five different beaches perished on that very, very first day. And of course it wasn't easy. They didn't get that far in those five sections were not connected, certainly on that first day. And it took many, many weeks of battle to make some progress against the deeply entrenched Germans at that time, so yes, where the lucky ones, I guess they were but it was like a flip of a coin who is gonna live who's going to die. ABC's Tom rivers, joining us from Normandy, on the seventy fifth anniversary of d. Thank you, Tom. Thank you, share..

Hey, you know, if you want to go places in life, you ought to do this. And it was so interesting in the in the crowns and the demos people were saying he's being so condescending to us, and it was this idea that you don't need to explain something to us better. We have understood just just go away and rethink everything. People seem really agree about domestic issues. How do they feel about Emmanuel Macron on the world stage? How do they view his relationship with Trump Mike is criticized a lot in front, but what people like him for among other things that people love in the most for his foreign policy for being, you know, important on the world stage for making FRANZ important on the world stage again, and so he absolutely had to convince Trump to come on site. And he was being described in the early days, the Trump whisper who could bring Trump into the fold and his hand on Trump's like van is absolutely deliberate. Everything every bit of body language between Trump and micro is totally calculated and deliberate. Elected president though frats. Credible campaign and had a tremendous is seen as having won the handshake war with Donald Trump, which was which was the first time he met Donald Trump as president was in Brussels before NATO summit into this famous white knuckled handshake where he gripped Trump hand ages and kept on shaking in this kind of alpha male standoff showing he was a dominant male and he had he and his team had been studying videos of Trump's handshakes for data. This is really count related. And of course, Donald Trump loved coming over to Paris. And he he loved this military parade that was put on for him, which was obviously the best deal parade that was happening anyway in America had already been invited before Trump was elected. So it wasn't a specific Trump move. What we've seen after that is Trump playing to his own domestic audience, particularly right now at the moment. So when he came over for the centenary of wells will want and we're not quite sure exactly what tips Tump Trump over. But he went back home and started furiously tweeting against Emmanuel Macron. Let me just read this one. You know, this is the president of the United States. Emmanuel Macron suggesting building its own army to protect Europe against the US China and Russia, but it was Germany in World War One and two. How did that work out for France? They were starting to learn German in Paris before the US came along pay for NATO, or no, I mean incendary in the extreme surely, I know I was actually sitting with one of them on microns advisers close advisors when that tweet dropped Ashley. And it was very interesting to see the reaction. The reaction was no comments. No comments were not going to be drawn into any kind of Twitter. Trouble this. I don't know. Tweet. I always prefer having thyroid discussion or answering questions at making my my through tweets, but his relationship with Donald Trump. What about his relationship with Theresa May? They do get on. Well, I went with him to London when he went to see Theresa May at Downing Street during the election campaign. He's really at ease with Theresa May an easing downing street's. She came over to see him while he was in holiday in the summit tool Brexit, and he hosted her his fortress on the on the Rivera presidential force where he's building a pool they got on. Well, but you see he's a pragmatist. How is he using Brexit? What does it mean to him? Brexit is really really important mccown. Why why because if there's one ideology can define Emmanuel Macron by its he is pro Europe. He is hugely pro the EU. And so he uses the Brexit metaphor for French domestic politics all the time. And we particularly seeing it now with the protests in the citizens protests against his fuel tax rises, the idea of people versus the elites. So he's trying to style himself as the progressive you. Europe's main progressive that will stand up against populism and nationalism and he's really playing that code..

We can't speak about the new world order without talking about Emmanuel Macron and the other players in the new world order. Did you just catch? What French president Macron said he said, nationalism is treason. Then, you know, there's a big election going on right there with the European Union and populists and France, Hungary, and Italy or surging in the polls and Emmanuel I'm going to talk about that. In a second MAC, Ron is basically saying this is treason. But you know, what else he is said. And what's concerned me is he's on record stating that if in fact, President Trump fails. Bringing peace to the Middle East. He has a plan that he's been working on for the last year that he will propose between Palestine and Israel friends. Do you know what that means? That means if that happens the bible in terms of end times of biblical prophecy comes to pass the seven year peace treaty and an anti Christ will rise. How about if that antichrist's does Macron his first name is Emmanuel God with us. Anti christ. Basically says I am God. And the world rejects it, and there's the tribulation. Oh, I know it's maybe just a little conversation tonight. But are you going to tell me and times biblical prophetic? Revelation doesn't seem to be kind of taking center stage here with all the corruption not only in America, but around the country, and now bio hacks international in the United Kingdom is in talks with their government to make not allow make thousands of employees receive a microchip implant. So that they can trade. This is legitimate. Biohacking international is a biotech form, and it's offering implants to businesses and individuals. It has already fitted a hundred and fifty implants in the UK alone. The tiny chips are supposed to be implanted in the flesh between the thumb and forefinger kind of similar to what you do with your pets. You know, how you have a chip but get this. This is supposed to be convenient for people. You can pay your bills this way, you can pay at the grocery store, you can withdraw money at the ATM. You can actually start your car by waving your hand, and your medical data can be stored in there. Friends. There is a new world order. There are players in new world order and in America, the Luciferians players are Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and many of these other Democrats, some of them don't even know they're involved in this type of agenda. They've been manipulated. They've been brainwashed. To believe it. One of the biggest reasons is open borders. Let's have an open society a one world government one religion one world currency. Look, I'm telling you French president Emmanuel Macron is macaroni is on is on record. On record of saying these very things. So you tell me why Trump is having a bad time of it. You tell me why the constant attacks by the media, you tell me all the while the accusations, you tell me why all the fraud and cheating is going on. Could it be true? Could it be possible that God did intervene in the two thousand sixteen election? Could it be true that Hillary Clinton was supposed to win? Could it be true that the polls were real they were accurate? Hillary Clinton was supposed to win and God intervened. One last time to say, you know, what you better get it together.

We have conservative values. What the hell is wrong with you idiot. Then why let me ask you this. And I asked the same thing to the Hispanic community. Why then do we not have more conservative Muslims stepping up running for office? And basically putting away the myth that Muslims are liberal. You know, what's being one of the problems that we have is mind control brainwash, the mob mentality in units tied to stand up. Like like what I'm doing? Oh, you're a conspiracy theorist euro white or right winger. It's like, no, I'm not I'm pointing out facts to you people. I mean, I mean, Steve did you see what I'm on? Head about President Trump on ABC. She hasn't even been sworn in yet, and she's already calling him a racist. And we have to accept that. As a fact lady. You haven't even been sworn in yet.

They're prepping her man, I'm telling you they're gonna they're gonna prep her like they did Obama Obama came out of nowhere Khalid. He came out of nowhere Obama, and he won. You know, what Steve I hope to God. If it's not Hillary Clinton. It's coretec because Trump is going to beat her. But see it won't be now because she has to be a certain age. So this would probably be two thousand twenty four maybe even two thousand in twenty eight but they're already planning this is how the Democrats operate. They're putting together Manchurian candidates to literally go take elections. Why do you think Khalid? They want a legals here. I'll give you the final word before we go to break. Well. Just before I go I have two quick questions for Jack. I know he's going to join you in the third hour. I wanted. I wanted to know what did he think about Trump pointing Michael Whitaker as the temporary and turn them attorney general you can ask him that. Okay, absolutely effect and question. And then the second question is I want more information about the Thousand Oaks shooter shooting. Apparently, I've been hearing that all he was and he was a radical Muslim Paris. And so far, I haven't confirmed that. I don't know. Maybe he is. I don't know. I'm not saying he is. But I want Jack if he can he has any information. I wanna know what's this guy's deal. Why did he do it for? Yeah. Jack, Jack is already on hold on a on a special line. And he will be addressing those things. I've seen it on the notes Khalid small segment I got a bounce.

But perhaps Europe should I fades fair share of NATO, which the US subsidizes greatly. In fact, McCaw says reference to protections against the US was a reference to cyber intelligence capabilities in any event, it was a typical Trumpian move designed to get attention which it did. I asked Macron weather a clash between him and Trump was inevitable. We had a very good discussion to s- moaning, and in confirmed an front of suppress said he was he was a K. I think there's that mean that his tweet was a mistake. His tweets, and I always prefer having thyroid discussion or answering questions at making my my diplomacies tweets bets that I think we had a very clear discussion e is in favor of a bitter burden-sharing with within native. I agree with that. And I think that's not to have a better better sharing. Office do need more Europe. And I think there's a big mistake would to be very direct.

I do believe is that if at this stage Europe has to become a more consistent and most suffering IMO United in democracy far. And today, it's not it's a case, we build something very. Original during the past seven decays bets. Arisen new step for wall to be organized. And this is a case today. Let me ask you about your relationship with Donald Trump. He says that now that he's he's made up with you. After the tweet he says, you have lots in common. And I'm wondering what that is. Because he calls himself, a nationalist he draws on this populace forces, and you describe yourself often as one of the great opponents of these forces of nationalism in populism. So what do you think you have in common? That Botha's outsider of the classical positions. I would say and arrive from from the business side. He was not the favorites. And it was an unexpected candidates. And I was pretty mentioned the situation in France hubby because we'll very much in line in the fight against terrorism, and we would very closely together following this this line. We know where we disagree, and we offer right for that on climate on trade on the internet. But we we work very well together because we have ferry wriggle on direct discussions. But obviously, you rights I would say I'm patriots. I do believe in the fact that peep out people are very important and having French people is different from John. German people. I'm not a believer in sort of thump. Globalise in without in differentiation. I think it doesn't it's very inconsistent. And it's extremely it makes people very nervous. But I'm not an a nationalist. Which is different for me from being the patriots. I do defend my people, I do defend my country. I do believe that we have a strong identity, but I must hung believer in cooperation between the different peoples. And I'm assume believer of the fact that this corporation is good for everybody where the nationalists. I'll sometimes mush more. Based on the union approach and is a low of the strongest which is not my case. Pull up y'all difference. Do you think it matters to have a personal relationship with Donald Trump because of all foreign leaders? You certainly seems to warm toward you..
