"extrajudicial killing" Discussed on Quick News Daily Podcast

"There is a lot of anger in those thoughts as well. It's not all sunshine and roses for trump I'm sorry to jump in here like this I usually don't do this but I was editing and I had a whole different start to the episode lined up. But as I was editing I saw this come across twitter, we send in the US marshals. Who was over? Fifteen minutes. God? They knew who he was didn't want to arrest them fifteen minutes at A. But they call themselves peaceful. You can call me crazy. But that sounds like the president of the United States sanctioned murder unlawful on a United States citizen breaking I don't know how many amendments I mean, who does that, and if one person comes out and says, he was joking then. I'm sure they will because they're just morally depraved people but this has to be the biggest headline everywhere. He sanctioned murder. We kinda thought this was what was happening all along. But man to so freely admit it. To get cheers. If Congress could do their job. They wouldn't be approving his Supreme Court nominee they'd be impeaching and removing him. I cannot wait to see him in an orange jumpsuit. I can't wait to see him locked up for real. How many crimes does he have to commit? Unbelievable? I guess that's a good place to start because both of them are having separate events televised night, this was supposed to be the night of the town hall debate, but obviously concerns about Donald. Trump's true health status means that it's not really safe for anybody to be around him especially, not for that. Long there are a lot of reports coming out from NBC that employees are disgusted that the company allowed trump equal time because he's actually scheduled in the same timeslot. As Joe, Biden's ABC event I do think it's kind of scummy for NBC to do. So to divide the audience like that at the same time, it offers trump a great opportunity to go ballistic I. Guess that would be an opportunity for us because the more he's on TV, the less people like him. But also can you imagine what trump's reaction will be if Joe Biden gets better ratings than him, he's already complaining because stop me if you've heard this before his. Sizes at his rallies bigger than Joe, Biden's according to him. So he thinks people want to see him in that. There's more enthusiasm the actual difference. Is, that Joe Biden doesn't pay people to attend his events like you did this last Saturday at the White House not only that but he's following scientists advice against holding rallies because they're super spreader events. So my plea for all of us is that we tune into Joe Biden's townhall event tonight on ABC. It starts at seven PM Central Time Eight PM Eastern and I hope we can really drive up those ratings. I know a lot of us have mostly ditched cable but if you do still have it or you use an antenna or something I, think that would be sort of fun. Don't you? By the way we also learned this morning that two members of Communist team Comma Harris tested positive for the corona virus but she said she was not in close contact with them in the two days prior to their diagnosis in that sense. Then she has tested negative several times I'm not sure though this is recorded earlier in the day but I'm not sure if this would have any implications on Biden's event tonight especially, if he's had close contact with her, we'll have to wait and see. Speaking of testing positive Malania trump dropped a big revelation yesterday although I'm sure we all could have guessed it. She released a personal story about what her battle with corona virus has been like, and it does sound like she got a more moderate case not mild to not symptomatic. That's for sure. She said, she experienced coughing headaches fever and excessive fatigue. However, the big reveal that she dropped was that Barron trump also tested positive which the White House has previously denied and outright said, he tested negative I, guess it really shouldn't be surprising that Donald? Trump in the White House lied but the total indifference that trump displayed towards his son tells you all you need to know about what he thinks of US I don't think trump was necessarily patient zero at the Emmy nomination ceremony just because of the bubble that he lives in but I would not be surprised if he is like patient one, who spread it to all these other people because he seems to be the one common thread among all of them it actually sort of feels like a sick game of clue donald trump in the Rose Garden. With the Supreme Court nomination of radical judge well, good news Melania and Barron Donald says that you're now immune and you should go out and kiss the entire audience like he says at every rally now for some reason. Good News Dexter fans. There's a reboot in the works scheduled very tentatively to premiere in fall of next year Michael C hall is returning as Dexter in. Clyde, Phillips as returning as show runner Phillips was previously the show runner for seasons one through four, which most fans of the show agree are the best the article I read on deadline seemed to think it's a reboot sense. It's a ten part mini series but here's the official statement from the CO president of entertainment at showtime quote Dexter is. Such a special series both for its millions of fans and for showtime as this breakthrough show helped put our network on the map many years ago we would only revisit this unique character if we could find a creative take that was truly worthy of the brilliant original series well, I am happy to report that Clyde. Phillips and Michael, C Hall have found it and we can't wait to shoot it and show it to the world and quote that doesn't necessarily sound like it has to be a reboot. Maybe, I'm just missing something either way that should be fun and thank God they didn't try to recast. Here's a story that I'm sure none of us will be surprised by, but it's still kind of shocking that it has been confirmed I'm talking about this story from the New York Times where they found that just as there are going on CNBC and Fox business telling everyone that the corona virus situation was under control the Economic Advisers for the trump administration were telling their wealthy donors a very different story they're saying that this is going to be a problem in that American life would be disrupted. This article is written in. A way that it's a bit hard to tell where the information is coming from and who exactly provided it to the Times. But the gist is that the trump administration hosted a couple of days worth of off the record talks with members of the Conservative board of the Hoover Institution, which is a part of Stanford University. This was back in February, and that's where these trump officials like Larry Kudlow and Peter Navarro I brought up the fact that this could get bad before any of the board members even asked about the virus. This was just hours after Kudlow was on CNBC saying that the US was pretty close to airtight. That's almost a direct quote in that we wouldn't have an issue here. The importance of this is that is just another part of the pattern of trump's corruption how he gives his donors important info while lying to people like you and me is just salt in the wound to realize that these important donors spread this info to their friends on wall, street, who started selling a bunch of stock causing the market to drop three hundred points in one day I mean I am just shocked Mr Trump. The man who's banned from running a charity in New York because his last one stole money that was raised for kids fighting cancer he told me he was going to drain the swamp is that working out? Guys. I think we should just take a second pat ourselves on the back for predicting this guts because I stood up for cavenaugh when they try to destroy that man's life and the unpardonable sin politics has helped Donald Trump. My opponent has raised fifty seven million dollars the most in the Senate in the history of the United States Senate because they want to take me out Menzies Graham Dot. com helped me close the gap to all people listening on this show you've been buried Jacobs. Help ever Republican Barbara Streisand is trying to get you thrown out of the South Carolina's. And so I guess Rosie O'Donnell to right. Yeah. You know I got to midnight less port on. South Carolina's not for Sale Yup that was Lindsey Graham once again begging for money on Fox News last night I guess that's what you have to do when you're raises fifty, seven million dollars and you raised twenty six million less than half pathetic. I don't want to counteract chickens before they hatch, but I want to be the first to say it if Jamie Harrison wins this I think he'll probably be in the conversation for Democratic nominee for president or vice president in twenty twenty four. His campaign has been phenomenal. He seems to have a natural political skill that reminds me of another president who only spent four years as a senator. Personally, I'm kind of rooting for calmly to be the presidential nominee in Harrison to be the vice president because if they win, can you imagine Republicans freak out when the go from trump the confederate president they've always wanted to a black president and a black vice president let's make it happen people but speaking of that confederate president let's take a listen to another clip of him calling into Fox business this morning. To be an interesting. H This is this is a financial program as you know. So may I wrap it up on a financial note? Sure. You came into this interview saying, yes you're prepared to go higher the one point eight, trillion dollars correct. You don't expect a phone call from Speaker Pelosi but you would go higher how The Republicans well too. Because we like stimulus, we want stimulus and we think we should have similar list because it was China's fault it was not the American workers fall to the American people. So why not just go with Speaker? Pelosi two, point two, trillion dollars because she's asking for all sorts of goodies wants to bail out badly run Democrat states and cities. She wants money for things that you would never just couldn't I just. Couldn't let it happen. So what would you? Say. If you want to up your off above one point eight trillion, what would that extra money Goto? It would go to the worker it would go to the people directly to the people so they can live nicely and their lives won't be shattered because of China. Have you told second friend Mnuchin to get out there off more than one point eight trillion. I told him so far. He hasn't come home with the Bacon. Okay Mr President the. Swollen to Florida. Short. We, do appreciate you being with us. Oh. Always unto thank you very much for doing that. I, think you have a great show Stewart I. Really. Do I like his show a lot I like you a lot. Thank you very much. So. You. Thank you. Once again, trump shows that he is. So mentally incompetent that he can't talk about policy or details at all all understands is who's on his side and who's not. Okay folks I. think that's where I'm going to call it for today. Let's remember to tune into ABC tonight to watch Joe Biden's townhall eight, pm Eastern seven central and let's get his ratings higher than trump's tomorrow I'll have a lot of clips from that as well some General Biden versus trump facts and just voting facts in general. So look forward to that. There's nothing new on my end yet. So stay safe make your plan to vote. No Sierra back you tomorrow..

From End Sars to End Swat, Nigeria protests explained

"It's been more than a week of protests against police brutality in Nigeria tens of thousands of Nigerians have taken to the streets where police officers have opened fire on demonstrators and arrested hundreds at least ten protesters have been killed so far. Protesters have been calling for police reform and specifically the end of a unit that has been accused of human rights abuses. The unit is called the specialize anti robbery squad. Or SARS over the weekend the President of Nigeria said the unit would be disbanded but demonstrators remain skeptical and are continuing to protest until all of their demands are met joining us now is the BBC's Nigeria correspondent, my any Jones from Lagos. Welcome to the show Miami High Tanzania. So we said that people are protesting this unit but what was was there something that set off the protests to begin with? So the process initially started on early in October when a visual appearance to should meet the appearing to show some young men being dragged by a sales offices out of a hotel. It's unclear when the video was taken, but it was shared very widely on social media in Nigeria and started a resurgence in a Hashtag the had been seen in the poss which was. The HASHTAG and saws. This hashtag first appeared thinking twenty eighteen and had been used a couple of times before when similar videos had been posted showing solves officers allegedly brutalizing members of the public but this time round it picked up a lot of speed and this movement. This youth led movement that seems quite organic has emerged from it what types of policing tactics Are. Residents are Nigerians protesting and who are SARS targeting generally. So, Nigerians have been protesting everything from extortion to torture to extrajudicial killings. I'd be see that's Members of Saul's particularly allowed to act with impunity. on targets often young members of the public who? hops occurring mobile phones laptop they accused him of Internet's cameras The also occasionally target people driving nice calls and particularly they young female asking them how they made their money and they say that these practices are completely unacceptable and that they're taking advantage of their position as plain clothes, policemen to extort people for money. And and carry tile carry a brutal acts of violence against members of the public. Now, we mentioned that the president of Nigeria has since said that he would disband this unit but protesters are still wanting demands to be met. What specific demands are they asking for Miami Su they have a number of demands had a half five key demands they want all protesters to be released. Divest full justice for victims of police brutality who've been killed and compensation for their family they want an independent body to overseen investigation into police misconduct They've also asked for a psychological evaluation and training of members of SAWS, and they want to increase salaries for policemen across the board. Protesters have been killed by law enforcement ten people we understand so far has there been any accountability or. Justice for those people. So that's one of the key reasons why protesters is still out on the street despite the dissolution of sauce for them the dissolution does not constitute any actual justice for victims and they said the fact that people have been killed these protests at no officer has been charged investigations being launched. Nothing appears to have been done to that the forties and not committed to reforming police in any. Substantive Way and they said, they'll keep coming out onto the streets until they see some actual chain beyond just rhetorical the government beyond promises of reforms that they say they've seen before they want to see officers charged they want to see changes puts into law and wants to be assured that police officers in Nigeria would no longer be allowed to act with impunity. Let's talk a little bit about who these protesters are. Are they largely young people? Are they women? Are they men? Who are we seeing? That's taking to the streets that's what's been very interesting about this latest wave of protests. It's just the shit -versity of people who've gotten involved. You have members of the Nigerian DASS per sending money from abroad from the U S from. From the UK, you have young middle class people who live in Nigeria who educated abroad who are lending their skills be it's legal skills medical skills kills in logistics and organizing, and then you have you know ordinary Nigerians perhaps who've lived here their whole lives who are often targeted by the police because they seem as as powerless with not. So well connected all these diverse groups are coming. To a these protests because they say that the violence committed by south under underway to police because this is also a protest about abuses of police in Nigeria a whole affect everyone.

The power of the Black Lives Matter movement

"We in wave one wave to if there is a low dose that mark an end because we're gathering of strength these questions we ask about corona virus but what if we understood social movement moments in the same way the death of George Floyd and the uprisings that followed can seem like the birth of a new social movement and the new host of possibilities disbanding at the funding police departments commemorating Juneteenth ads addressing the on going silent apart taped the systemic racism woven through the society and everything from voting rights to healthcare urban planning it seems as sudden as a lightning strike Alan Kwabena Frimpong is an activist and consultant with ad astra collective which provides tools to build social movements he says the explosion was ignited by what his group calls a trigger event or several of them the killing of George Floyd the pandemic the previous extrajudicial killings of black people these events where we can no longer be complicit with the conditions of the status quo that way in and then once the triggering event unleashes this long accumulating rage comes the heroic phase everybody's on the streets anything seems possible which leads you say to a honeymoon right people believe anything is possible that we've been dreaming of that we would like to see in our world a future without police without jails and prisons now that not only seems possible it's becoming possible so we thought that with the disbandment of the Minneapolis police department but the vote that was taken by the city council and so if in this space that possibility can live and then history tells us the honeymoon inevitably ends leading to disillusionment contraction you call it the women's March and occupier quintessential examples and likewise the first wave of black lives matter what's happening with the disillusionment sets in any time during this period we think we've failed that when the cameras turn off when there's not as much attention to the issues and mass media or even in social media we think that the movement activity has somehow ended but it hasn't it's that what is required of us as shifted or it gets to share in this phase of the cycle and it's a time to build strategy and to build organization to find unity around the issues and to figure out the infrastructure needed to be able to create the visions of the world that we actually want to live in an analogy might be that you light the grill the flames jump out of the cattle so big you could get singed but then fifteen minutes later you come back and all you see is a heap of calls but underneath it is smoldering the cycle does seem to reflect at least American history going back to the Boston tea party these kind of waves that we've seen this country has dealt with since its inception when you invoke the Boston tea party that history a card with the backdrop of slavery and the removal of indigenous folks we have to understand our ways of rebellion and Ryan I'm here in Jersey New Jersey eighteen eighty four of you have black people riding here in Newark because of the erection of what was then the school system and how black people were being locked out of participation there are the strength of events in our history that lead to these moments so let's call this the the second wave of black lives matter does the same pattern still hold I mean if this is the second honeymoon should we expect marital reality to kick and with a second loss of energy why wouldn't we we still live in a culture that upholds capitalism mmhm and that holds white supremacy the fact that we have people still talking about the reform of a police state I think it's indicative of that what feels different indicates the value of corporations who want to put out statements saying black lives matter so yeah we're and if you want to call it a second wave of black lives matter but the reality is that as we've talked about before the construction phase we really will have to ask the deep question what will be required of aspen organizer activist members of our communities to ship the material conditions are you in the process of trying to manage expectations show how the cycle works and say we're not gonna leave the news for much longer be prepared to build networks and continue to organize continue to lobby what we will need to deal with in this contraction phase is what are going to beat the alternative institutions that people can look to that people can trust and that people can believe in that show that the path to the new normal that we deserve and to me what that looks like is worker owned cooperatives credit unions to me the control of our public safety health care for all public education accessible to all those things would need to change if we're asking for the abolishment of police because what it requires of us then is to change our relationships with each other and build community with each other and that's what we're going to need to prepare for as this contraction phase comes to life and the question becomes what we choose to do that work we choose to build with people in our neighborhoods we choose to depend on them and create modalities for our safety reeking of other institutions the show is called on the media and I want to ask you about us and I'm gonna go back to occupy to do it when the protesters vanished from the public parks and went home sometimes chased away by police we in the media seized on that extra this is a sign of the movement's failure because its goals were too quixotic it's politics too fragmented and so what is the contraction phase of the cycle reflected by or influenced by the media characterizations when people are not in the streets anymore and there there is in this huge spectacle what is there left to cover America is so infatuated with the spectacle of its own violence and the trauma that ensues from may the disillusionment in the contraction of the cycle I think is a representation of what we tend to be stuck in in terms of our own habits we enjoyed the trauma of the story of the victim the perpetrator and the savior and the way we tell our views as from that have been jewel norm if so what would it look like to shift away from that and perhaps tell news that connects the dots then tells a much more nuanced and complex story that the viewers or listeners deserve to hear where people can actually show authentic stories about what is going on from a place that is moving for people that shift something for them that doesn't truncate in flag in their lives and to just these one dimensional identities there's a lot of what media frames and that then leads to some of the assumptions that get made about whatever happened to the much as whatever happens to the people organizing the rally is people are still doing that work but it may look different we in the media have focused on the tip of the iceberg the protests of the violence the repercussions but you have been talking of what's going on beneath the networks of people building power over time the organization what do you think we can do to tell the story of protest better folks in the media need to ask themselves why do we feel compelled to tell these stories in these ways what do we believe about our audience about what they're ready to hear and what they're ready to listen to we can then have a conversation about whether the human stories that need to be shared that connect the dots people think that somehow Minneapolis was just able to do this overnight but they have been in a protracted struggle for years to get to this point if media where to tell the stories of what it took to get there that would be a different kind of conversation that has different kinds of implications and the time that it would take to tell those stories with me the focus of the story is not just around making a profit but we would actually have to honor people's time contributions much differently than the ways that we do right now are they willing to shift as an industry to live into the kind of lives that these movements are demanding in the clearing for

Jeff Bezos Got A Shady WhatsApp Link From The Saudi Crown Prince And Was Hacked

"Reuters writes that the Saudi Foreign Ministry has again dismissed claims of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman's involvement in hacking Amazon founder. Jeff bezos is phone as absurd. That is they didn't do it. And especially the the crown prince didn't do it but investigations are in progress and it certainly seems that something was done to Mr Basis device. Is it possible. The Crown Prince May Himself Elf have been hacked either his phone or WHATSAPP account as some have suggested. Well sure maybe. And it does seem odd that a crown prince would directly actually get his digital hands dirty on the other hand who better to hack the richest man in the world's device than a fellow billionaire who's met him at the places where billionaires go to meet in any case buzzfeed notes Saudi aligned. Twitter accounts have been doing a lot of anti bezos wolfing with accusations of insincerity concerning his expressions expressions of mourning for the late Jamal Kashogi a discreditable personal life. As evidenced by the intimate pictures someone provided to the national enquirer and so on buzzfeed thinks the accounts doing the tweeting are a part of a coordinated and inauthentic campaign presumably directed from beyond so does the United Nations in Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial killings. Agnes Alamar told buzzfeed quote the hacking and the campaign are two actions taking place place alongside each other both of which aim in my view at intimidating creating fear and ultimately controlling or silencing the people who are the object of both hacking and the campaign and quote. Mr Bezos has been the target of such campaigns before. NBC News reported that they began shortly after. Jamal Kashogi who had been a columnist columnist for the Bezos owned Washington Post was assassinated inside the Saudi embassy in taboo a murder which occurred on October second of twenty eighteen twitter at that that time took down a large number of the accounts involved. The platform has yet to take large-scale action in this latest round.

Hatice Cengiz's mission: Don't forget Jamal Khashoggi

"I'm with ruler Caliph the deputy editor of the F. T. and she's had recently rather astonishing interview. She met recently Hattie's challenges who of course found herself at the center of an international drama indeed something of a horror story last October. This is when the young Turkish academic were seen waiting outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul for her fiance who never appeared that man of course was the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi details of whose murder at the hands of Saudi the thugs would leak out over the coming days and weeks so so really just start by telling us. What is the state of the investigation into Khashoggi's death? Well depends what you mean by investigation and which investigation in Saudi Arabia Arabia a group of people are being put on trial but we know very little about this trial elsewhere. There has been a U._N.. report by a U._N.. Expert on the murder however that report does not or have any legal basis it only makes recommendations and it has recommended an impartial international investigation for that to happen however you would need you on Security Council approval and I don't expect that exactly exactly 'cause you're touching on the really important point of the sort of full out of this whole saga namely. It doesn't look as if we're going to be many repercussions for the Saudi regime does it and why is that. I think that there were initially some repercussions for the. The Saudi regime mainly reputational a lot of business. People and political figures stayed away from Saudi Arabia. There was a bit conference. That was a flop but I think over time things of return to normal. I don't think the reputation of the Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman the man we know as and BS will ever really fully recover but I think that once Western governments and especially the U._S. government can't say that doing business with Saudi Arabia's fine he was for example at the g twenty in fact Saudi Arabia is going to be hosting the g twenty next year that is kind of rehabilitation Saudi Arabia hosting the g twenty year stunning given all that happened and imagine particularly appalling news for your lunch companion. The other day had tease Chang who is campaigning passionately for Kashoggi's motorists to be brought to justice. is is Here a clip now so I want to know who gave the order to kill them out and who else knew I want to know. Where is his body? I implore you to take action darkness essay. It is time for sanctions so that was her tease. Chang is speaking at the U._N.. Human Rights Council in Geneva last month. The Agnes was referring to as Agnes Calamar the special reporter on extrajudicial killings who had in fact just revealed called the results of this investigation you talking about ruler which found quote credible evidence clothes quotes that senior Saudis implicated in Mr Kashoggi's murder but let's turn to at t's challenges this was a powerful and really poignant. Poignant interview you had to do rule tell us what impression did you make. It was obviously a painful interview. It's painful for her to speak about Sharma but I think she's also now very driven. She is so frustrated by the silence she so frustrated by the fact that there has been no action that she's now turned this into her mission. Jomo Hachioji was essentially fighting for human rights. It's this is what he was writing about and she now feels that she has to take up that fight as I write in my lunch with the F. T. she now knows that she is part of the story. She's been studying the Middle East for a long time and now she feels that she's become one of its victims and there are so many of them so she was fighting back tears the whole lunch at one point when she tells me about the nights when she knew for sure that Jamal was dead. That's when her tears came rushing down one of the many things that struck me about her accounting hug conversation with you was relatively brief had in her relationship with Jamalco. Gee I mean they don't known each other for a few months. I wonder if you could just say a little bit about how they met in the nature of their relationship yes they only met in May of last year they met at a conference about the Gulf in Istanbul. Jamaa was speaking at that conference and she had only known him as someone who should seen on T._v.. She'd read him. She was very interested in Saudi Arabia and she was very keen to interview him about what. What was going on in Saudi Arabia what he was writing about and so she just goes up to him and introduces herself and says can we talk? Can you give me a few minutes and she speaks to him in Arabic because she speaks pretty fluent Arabic and I think that impresses impresses Jamal and so they meet up he asks her by Turkish awesome about Saudi and then she contact him again to tell him when the story is going to be published and two. I think check some quotes that's next time he goes to Turkey. They meet up again but this was a very quick romance in many ways but from what she told me this also has to do with the fact that Jemaah was in a very uncomfortable place ace at the time he was sort of looking for a new life. He'd been exiled in the U._S.. He was on his own so he was looking for a companion and he was very depressed and I think that they found in each other. You know the person she understood him. He understood her and so yes. This was a marathon romance. When he was murdered? He was writing columns for the Washington Post but as his then fiancee points out in this interview he actually in previous part of his life. He'd been an advisor to some members of the Saudi Royal Family Herself says in this interview one of the many powerful lines she says Jamal was from the palace not from outside it. He was not their enemy. Can you tell us why were they so frightened of him. Why did they have to kill him well? It's a very good question Alec. I don't think that anyone really knows why they were so frightened of him but it is also possible that they weren't that frightened of him. They had a strategy. Ah of silencing anyone who was critical of the Crown Prince Jamal wasn't the only one many of journals friends who stayed in Saudi Arabia are in jail and this new regime demint Saudi Arabia requires not only that you don't criticize they require that you approve the reason Jamal had left was because he did not want to engage and to support award a very hostile strategy towards cutter he was required to write in support of the strategy and that's where he drew the line and so there is such an intolerance that even someone who is only a writer actually not a writer who schooling for revolution a writer who wants Saudi Arabia to correct and to move on a better path. I mean you can even argue that much of what he was. Writing was advice to the crown prince but there is zero tolerance. It's not going to be easy for her. T snow is it nearly a year has passed as you said earlier for some parts of the sort of Western business in foreign policy establishment is not quite business as usual but they are going to re apply some of those ties to Saudi. What do you see happens to her now to? She pursue this cause at U._N.. How does she make any headway? I found and her to be very determined. I think that she wants to use the Kalama a report to try to put pressure on Western governments but may be more broadly she. Will become a voice that is just fighting for human rights at some point. I imagine she would even have to address that in Turkey. Because of course there are a lot of journalists who are jailed elden Turkey for hottest today. Her cause is Jamal but I think that she may also in the future want to broaden her course that it's not Jamaa and the Truth About Jamaa which I'm sure she will continue to fight for but YEP. She may very well be campaigner for human rights all is thrust upon her shoulders after just knowing him for a few months extraordinary I think we should end with a clip from Matisse which is also something of a call to arms from in her and she said this at the U._N.. Session in Geneva last month echoing what she said to you in this remarkable interview it's not only my below Jamal who was more that they but also democracy human rights and freedoms the failure to punish murderers F._X..

"I just think that the country is so on edge and part of that is okay what we're two weeks out from a midterm election. Right. That's a pretty boring conventional reason. But then I think the other half of it really is that like, I think post Trump the American imagination has a very different sense of our own capacity for political violence. You know, it feels like the nineteen sixties away that no other decade since the nineteen sixties has felt like yeah. I was thinking about how it sort of. Call back to the late sixties and seventies where there was a ton of bombings going on all across the states from various radical groups, a lot of left-wing radical groups back then, but one thing that I think is happening now that's really messed up is that already while most people are sort of holding off until we find out what happened. There's already this huge push of the false flag narrative from the right wing media. I mean, I think that's interesting because that is actually a very common, and at this point programmatic response that the right wing has to anything like the fact that whether you're talking about a school shooting or you're talking about pipebombs being sent to all of these high level politicians. The fact that the definitive reflecting talking point for any violence of a certain stature. In America is false flag. False flag that phenomenon is just strange, and I just don't know where to begin to unpack that. Literally is a sort of impulse that people on the far, right? Have for talking about murders. Extrajudicial killings in America is somewhere in a basement a secret cabal Democrats got together and decided to kill children or like Barack Obama. Yeah. In this case the themselves. Yeah. And it's just this information could have incited these attacks. And now disinformation is warping. What happened there? There's people out there who are understanding these events in like such a skewed way. I think that the perverse thing is that. They're people right there right wing people there Alex Jones's who their first response to this is how can we ju jitsu this again these attacks till like help encourage turn out among Republicans on November. Like, that's that's literally a way that people with not just random people on the internet. We're not talking about like egg with eighty six followers. We're talking about prominent right wing figures with huge platforms like their way of processing this is to think about voter turnout in two weeks among the voting base that his in even aligned with the people who are just the subject of these attacks. Like that's something about that. That's like a -standingly in human. I know I went to the info wars site today to see what Alex Jones saying. And yeah who is like false flag. Democrats are just trying to fix the midterms. I guess it's good that he doesn't have his social media platforms anymore. But this has been interesting to watch unfold because just this week there. There've been a lot of parallels drawn between left wing protests where are not even left wing just like liberal or anti GOP when prominent like Republican politicians get heckled at restaurants..

"Samir tweets at Ethan Bearman. They're calling it an explosive standoff now between the United States and Saudi Arabia. This will have major ramifications across the Middle East and potentially the world. As a Turkey has now done their initial investigation at the Saudi consulate in stem bull related to. What is now? The kashogi family is a acknowledging the death. The death of Mr. Jamal kashogi the reporter for the Washington Post who was allegedly murdered at the consulate the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul Turkey. He is a journalist. He's report. He's an opinion columnist whatever you wanna call him. He worked for the Washington Post. He was murdered allegedly because he dared to have problems in right about it. With the Saudi regime of King Solomon is still alive. But he really handed over the reins as it were. To m B S prince, Mohammad bin Salman. And this is a major issue. So I saw Senator Lindsey Graham on Fox News this morning. He said. This is such a big problem. NBS can never be seen. Never be seen. As a world leader never accepted as such that was South Carolina. He's regardless we think it was Baltics. He's a powerful Senator from South Carolina, and congress that has a lot of controlling this. Marco Rubio, Senator Rubio, I heard from Florida. This morning talking about implementing sanctions against Saudi Arabia for this horrific event. By the way, the Turks have come out and said. The consulates been scrubbed. And they saw evidence of it having been freshly painted, which of course, why do you do that is to cover up a crime? Scrub and repaint your consulate in a two week window between when a guy like Jamal kashogi disappeared they have video now they've put together of entering the van leaving him never being seen again. I mean, very serious crime. Remember under international law. This according to the United Nations human rights chief Michelle Basch allay quote under international law, both a forced disappearance and an extrajudicial killing. Are very serious crimes and immunity should not be used to impede investigations into what happened and who is responsible. So again, the Republicans in congress are starting to speak up saying we're going to do something about this. We don't need the president. Congress has the authority damp. Lament sanctions against Saudi Arabia. Cancel weapons deals at cetera. Congress Republicans are actually standing up on this topic. Do you agree with them? No. I'm just I'm very curious, especially for Trump supporters prison. Trump's like, no I want them to keep buying our weapons. Right. They have to keep buying our weapons. I love the Saudis. They give me their money. Remember, forty million dollars for a condo? So he loves them. Are you on the Republican side of what is kind of bubbling up now? Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham and others calling for sanctions now because Saudi Arabia hid this. They lied about it they hit their Mur murdered a journalist in another country because he dared write things that were critical of the crown prince where do you think? They ought to be focused on. No, no, we just we just need to maintain the peace and we've got to stop. We gotta keep Saudi Arabia close as a block against Iran. I don't know if you saw, but we implemented more sanctions on Iran just minutes ago as well. Went into place. US treasury announced new sanctions on Iran, targeting banks factories and several firms that just happened minutes ago. So do we just continue cozying up with Saudi Arabia, or do we actually say you can't? I mean, look, you can't just do these things. Four one five eighty eighty eight ten and what is really fascinating to me is President Trump has been brutally hard on our closest allies, Germany, Canada, the UK France while not as much France because macro played the game and kissy kissy.
