Fresh update on "france" discussed on Men In Blazers
"We have some French fanship after opening. Does anyone support Denmark here tonight? If everybody else enjoy life, you support them. Yeah, true. After opening up with an emphatic four one win over Australia, France are forced into a good old fashioned, scandalous scrap. Killian and bappe put France ahead in the 61st minute, but just 7 minutes later, Andreas Christensen pulled Denmark's hige 11 level. But with just 8 minutes left, it was that man again, Killian and bap a rising at the back post and knocking it in with his Mbappé. France win two one to go top of group D a game between the defending champions and a tactically savvy Danish team like a hoagie Ricky ticky tacker team had beaten France home in a way in the nation's league. That's European food we don't give a crap about these games and France. The nation's league is only really deeply deeply meaningful and important when it's played in Concacaf. France pounded them Mark. The Danish backline Ben, but didn't break, they frustrated France. I'm afraid to muscle wrestle repelled by all means necessary and bap a finally broke the deadlock stolen like said kind of Frank a phone and a Valencia. With a stealth finish, you're not the ball into the ground so intelligently. It was like watching a player who's watch a lot of Greg berhalter bounce passes. Confounded a goalkeeper. My God, 30 French goals that was aged just 23 and it felt like a hay maker of a punch in the moment. The commentators started to talk up, but maybe Friends will defend their title. And they said, maybe they will go back to back for the first time since Brazil in 1962, but God, this Danish team was so robust. They are so collectively tenacious, 7 minutes later, set piece, and by the way, just saying because I know Greg balls listens to this podcast. Set pieces. Oh.
Europe scrambles to help Ukraine keep the heat and lights on
"Countries such as France, Britain and the U.S. are pledging as much aid as possible to ensure that Ukraine can endure the upcoming freezing temperatures. Ukrainians are struggling to stay warm already as a Russian onslaught has cut off energy and electricity supplies in much of the country, U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Bridget brink, said Russia's latest on slaughter on the capital is inadmissible. We just faced here and me and everyone who is here in Kyiv, some 100 missiles being sent by Russia to try to cripple Ukraine's energy to put millions of people men, women and children in the cold and dark. France's foreign minister said Francis sending a hundred high powered generators to Ukraine to help people get through the coming months. On a visit to Kyiv, British foreign secretary James cleverly said a $60 million air defense package will help Ukraine to defend itself from further Russian attacks, likewise brink said the U.S. is stepping in to help. The United States is going to continue to do everything we possibly can working night and day to provide help. I'm Karen Chammas

I couldn't even say the name of my own book. Blazer tanica. Thank you, David, for the assist. I once met a Polish waiter in London, a real about it, and he explained to me really sadly. I actually bring my heart kind of room at dinner, kind of give me a crappy night to be candid. He said, it was right ahead of a World Cup like 2010. He said, we polls have a defined rhythm of our countryman's approach to world cups. He said, every single Polish campaign my whole life is the same. We polls have three group stage games, which leads to an inevitable impotent elimination match they want opening game in which everything's possible. Match day two, the must win game in which our team is very survivals on the line. A match day three, the dead rubber that we in Poland called the game of honor. And I watched this, and I was like, this game, please God, please, God will break the cycle and I want to raise my glass to you anonymous Polish waiter wherever you are today. Probably drunk in a bowl or probably doing heinous political things in Poland with democracy. Hugging your mates, they were making memories that will last forever. Yeah, big game for them coming up later this week, roger. Okay. Onto group D, you ready, roger? We begin with France to Denmark one.
Caring for the Forgotten Generation
"What a great area of ministry, you know, so often we think of the elderly as maybe, you know, they live their lives and we think of them of having family that cares for them until the very end, and that's true of many, and that's a good thing. But so often, like I said, 1.3 million reside in nursing homes. I think there's another million people who are in assisted living facilities. So that's a lot, 2.3 million people. And there's something like 35% of the elderly who will be in one form or the other of that kind of living environment. And I guess the right place to start is so often those older folks are neglected. So what got you into this ministry? Would you admit it's kind of funny because I had no idea how I got into this. That's usually the lord then, right? Yes. I have a mechanical carpentry kind of a background. And so I knew that that's what I would be doing for the church, maybe building buildings and stuff like that. But somehow I ended up, I actually heard an interview on a radio program. They were looking for volunteers at a nursing home. And so I went and interviewed and they said, would you bring people out for the church service on Sunday afternoon? We have 5 pastures that rotate through the months and bring them out, let them sit through the service and then when they're done, take them back to their rooms. And so that's what I did. But after about a month or two of this watching the hunger inside their hearts for what Jesus offers, I began to pray and ask God, what can be done? What can I do to help these people grow closer to Jesus? And that's how it began. You know, it's interesting because even our experience, you know, we kind of fell in that direction because my assistant patty Watkins had said, hey, do you want to sign up to do this? And that'd be great to expose the kids to that. Now the reality is your experience will be all over the map. I remember one woman that we encountered, she was dressed to the hilt, and she was sitting on the edge of her bed, mentally sound as could be. We walked in and she said, it's so good to see you. Thank you for coming and visiting me. It was sweet. She was lucid. She had all her faculties and what was so sad about her situation, she said her two sons had put her in this nursing home and that they rarely come to visit her anymore. That broke my heart because she was capable of so much. I mean, she was older, but she was all there. And I thought, man, my heart just broke for her that they're not even stopping by to visit her. And I just remember that experience because I felt like, wow, she needs people to stop in and say, hi, that's all she needed. Yes, about 80% of the residents receive less than one visit a month from family or France. That's really heartbreaking.

EU nations work on rift over gas price cap as cold sets in
"European Union and energy ministers have met at an emergency meeting on gas prices as winter approaches EU nations have not been able to agree on the question of gas prices, which are expected to skyrocket the soaring prices are a result of Russia's war in Ukraine with Moscow slashing gas supplies to all the European nations critical of Russia's actions. The meeting was focused on trying to break a deadlock between countries like Greece, Spain and France who want to cap on prices to ease household bills, and those like Germany and Netherlands that are insisting a price cap could cut supplies. Estonia's minister of economic affairs Leonard believes the price cap is necessary, but it is a tricky balance. I understand that we have kind of a long way and it is a real proposal on the table, but still the security of supply is paramount if the price is too high, we can compensate. We need to compensate. But we can not threaten the security of supply. I'm Karen Chammas
What Have We Learned and What Is Our Strategy?
"Says Charlie, this is actually a really good question. Charlie, what have we learned and what is our strategy? Look, a movement that does not adapt. A military that does not adapt. An organization that does not adapt will die. It's that simple. You must always constantly be adapting and improving. And one thing that we have to learn from is in Maricopa County, if we just all broadcast election day election day election day, it doesn't go well. You can sabotage ambushes all this nonsense. So instead, and I want to make sure I'm very clear about this. The ideal, the ideal way, how we want elections to operate is different than what we have to navigate. The ideal I would love to have a national day where everyone goes and votes. Voter ID, one day of voting, that's it. The way France does it, you know the winner by the election night, but that's not the world we live in. So if you live in Georgia, I would not recommend voting by mail. But in person early voting. In person early voting, go get your vote banked. We need the entire America first, the entire conservative movement in Georgia. I could tell you there's going to be shenanigans and nonsense and all of this, but we have got to get Herschel Walker across the finish line. This is the difference between the Democrats, having reliable 52 48 Senate or a 50 50 Senate. And with a 50 50 Senate, you're going to have cinema in a tough reelection fight and cinema with hopefully a tough primary challenge that seems to be bubbling up in Arizona with congressman gallego. And also Joe Manchin, who's going to have a very difficult race if he decides to proceed. Joe Manchin just might go become a lobbyist. Where it looks as if the popular governor justice might run Morrissey might run. There's a lot of different people in West Virginia that will keep pressure on Manchin. So this Democrat 50 50 majority won't really even feel like a majority.

"To beat Denmark or Frank's favorite. Spain then to take on Brazil in the quarter finals. So I imagine we're going to say Brazil, Argentina. Yep. And then we go semifinal, let's take it through to the other side of the bracket, England against the dark corner and then take us through Jules. Of course. Yeah, I mean, I've got England because I live here and I don't want them to expand me, so I can give them a really, really strong game. Then from there, of course. Yeah, France. France, Belgium and semifinal. So that means the final will be a repeat of 1998 joules. I think I said Franz Argentina in the final. Because you know, I think I think Messi and Argentina would be there really think they've got something special going on. And I think for France because I want fonts to win and I think they can win this. Even against Morgan's deodorant four years ago, maybe because there may be no favorite as Brazil Argentina are still think they can go all the way.

Eric Welcomes David Berlinski to the Show
"Thrilled to be sitting here in the studio. With my guest, David berlinski, David welcome. Thank you so much. Many people know just because I've mentioned it, I mentioned a few minutes ago in my introduction with Alvin, but that we had a Socrates in the city event last night at the union league club where you and I discussed principally the subject of your most recent book human nature, but I thought since you're in what I like to call America all the way from Paris, France, I thought it would be nice to get you here just in the studio. Just to continue our conversation, whatever that would be. It doesn't have to follow on where we left off last night. I'm just happy you're here in New York. I am too. Do you really think of New York as part of America? Nah. Technically, yes, I do. Technically me too. Well, you know, the funny thing is people always assume that they're sort of that there's monolithic thinking. There are so many people in New York who think politically or theologically the way I do. And so we all live in our little worlds and so I don't really feel set upon by hostile adversaries.
Rumble Refuses to Submit to the Censorship Demands of France
"The video platform rumble is really proving its reliability as a free speech platform. And by a free speech platform, what I mean is it genuinely is open. To all kinds of different viewpoints, so that the kind of open debate that is essential to self governing societies can move forward. Now, a full disclosure, Debbie and I are close to rumble. We helped to build up rumble. We actually are investors in rumble because we wanted to encourage the growth and proliferation of an alternative platform. Now, the latest news is the following rumble has apparently being was being pressured by the French government to ban certain foreign sources, particularly Russian. A source called RT France and also Sputnik. And basically the idea is the French were saying this these are adversaries and you have to ban them. And rumble said, no, we don't actually ban foreign news sources, even though there are foreign sources that are hostile that have their own accounts. By the way, there are foreign sources that have their accounts on Twitter and YouTube and Facebook, and they are not banned. They just happen to be the adversaries that the left doesn't want a ban. So for example, the Iranian government and various Iranian authorities have accounts on Twitter. They have accounts on YouTube. They have accounts on Facebook. And none of these platforms have banned them. So think about what's really going on with France coming to rumble and saying ban these Russian sites. In a sense, what they're telling rumble is we get to decide which kind of foreign bad guys are allowed and which are not allowed.
French Government Demands Rumble Shut off Certain News Sources
"But you know I've had a lot of business experience in my life with various entities and I got to tell you I said before in the beginning in the first hour that you can't fix bad people even in a good business They're going to take the business now But you can actually fix a bad business as long as you're surround yourself with good people And I'm really proud to be part of a rumble The CEO rumble Chris pavlovsky who is a good friend I'm an equity investor in rumble I try to put my money with my mouth is as often as I can It's one thing to talk about a parallel economy It's a whole other thing to try and build it But Chris had a decision to make the other day They came after rumble overseas a foreign government representative from France demanded that rumble censor a bunch of content that they didn't want on the platform Of course rumble being a free speech platform doesn't do that And we are not going to do that So they threatened rumble and said well listen you don't do this We're going to take you guys down in France So Chris said you know I know what I need to do here And I said I know you know you need to know you know what to do too So he tweeted this out yesterday The French government's demanded that rumble block Russian news sources Like Elon Musk I won't move our goal posts for any foreign government They demanded the same a Musk's Starlink by the way Rumble will turn off France entirely and we will challenge the legality of this demand Folks takes a lot of guts to do that And I want to say Chris and the team at rumble I'm proud of you I'm proud to be part of the liberty rebellion and the parallel economy And the fight against censorship and totalitarianism And the French officials trying to pull this off You should really be embarrassed We are a platform that believes in free speech If you don't like the news sources on there and you think they're fake news then start your own news channel and put out a news channel that discredits the channel you don't like
Plato Tried to Warn Us About Democracies
"Guys read in great detail? What Plato tried to warn us about when it came the democracy? Dictatorships naturally arise out of democracies. And you're going to see that happening in Brazil with this left wing leader. The Electoral College is one of the mechanisms which helps spread power over geography. It protects the country from sectionalism, it perfects the country from the urban masses. A political movement that dominates in just one area can force its will on an entire country. The Electoral College necessitates balance. And so now Brazil is going to have this far left wing Marxist take power. So look, Bolsonaro was and is a nationalist. He was a great president. He did a really good job in Brazil. Bolsonaro was very popular. Except in one region where Lula ran up the score. And Lula is a very left wing candidate. He's going to open up the prisons and make Brazil even more dangerous. But thankfully, we're not a democracy. They say Brazil is a democracy. Now, I would love for anyone to come on this program and show me a prosperous, safe, democracy right now in America. I say, oh, France, Germany. You think Germany is a prosperous country? They might be temporarily rich, but it's just a matter of time. And by the way, Germany does not respect freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of religious conscious, they don't at all. Why would they? They're not a republic. They're a democracy. It's about whoever gets the most amount of stuff.
Elon Musk Officially Owns Twitter
"Elon Musk now owns Twitter. The head of Twitter is gone. Their entire sensorship regime is gone. It is like the liberation of France from the national socialist Workers Party. It's like the fall of the Berlin Wall. The censorship Stasi, the Gestapo that excommunicated the Babylon bee and doctor Malone and Donald Trump and the restriction on speech. It is gone. Because of who, a man that the entire uni party can't control. Now, the story of Elon Musk is such an interesting one. And I am by no means a Musk apologist. There's plenty of things he says and does that I don't like his business in China, neurolink. There's all sorts of stuff. However, Musk is doing something that we have been hitting on this program for quite some time. We believe in hierarchies because we believe in reality. In nature, you are going to have hierarchies. There'll be some people that are richer than others, some people that are smarter than others. Some people that are better at sports, some people that are better at making music. Some people are performing drama or acting. A law of nature is the pareto principle. There will be a small amount of people that owns and produces a lot of stuff. By definition, you're going to have elites. The Marxist egalitarian promise of utopian future is nonsense. You're never going to have that. That's why Marxism always results in smaller and smaller groups of people controlling a lot more and more.
Why Is Joe Biden Meeting With the TikToker Behind 'Girlhood'?
"There is this very sick person. He's very demented, and he has a show called girlhood, kind of learning alongside you. I know a little bit about this. So it's a comedian turned influencer famous for a TikTok series of a hundred days of girlhood. Which tracked the biological man's journey from being a non binary to being a girl allegedly, was just invited to The White House Thursday to speak to President Biden. In a TikTok video showing the before and after meeting with the president, Dylan Mulvaney, giving a signature over exaggerated performance of woman, squeals with delight at the prospect of meeting the leader of the free world, and France is about showing off the outfit in the colors of the trans flag selected for the all important meeting to discuss quote unquote trans issues. I'm reading, by the way, from the post millennial dot com. So let's just kind of get an idea of what this person believes, meeting with the president of the United States, play cut one 25. But I was walking around in everyone was staring, and I was like, oh, okay, what's going on? And they were all staring directly at my crotch. And I went, oh, I forgot that my crotch doesn't look like other women's crotches sometimes, because mine doesn't look like a little Barbie pocket. Like a little Barbie pocket. So this person is participating in a equivalent of gender blackface, which is trying to pretend to be something that he is not. Appropriating an identity that is not his own. It's so funny. They always get so upset about blackface. You can't do that. Why is it you could appropriate womanhood then? And by the same time they say, it's going to be the year of the woman, you know, what is a woman exactly? But what we don't know what happened in the meeting, the interview will air Sunday Night. So is this kind of Joe Biden's new get out the vote strategy? Recent projections from RealClearPolitics shows Republican take Senate 53 47 winning an Arizona Georgia Nevada holding Pennsylvania Wisconsin. I tend to agree with that trend. So it's now the Biden geo TV strategy. Hey, I know that we're struggling with plumbers and coal workers in central Pennsylvania. I know that moms in Paradise valley don't like what we're doing. I know what we'll do. We'll go get the dude who thinks he's a woman who's on TikTok to go drive voter turnout.

Have the 'Thatcherites' Died Out? Mike Graham Weighs In
"There enough decent real I would call if I were in the UK now? I call myself a Thatcher ride. At the saturates died out, are they living a good life in the private sector? Are there enough to have the back of the next prime minister if they're a real conservative? Well, do you know the ex Home Secretary, Sue a brave man who basically resigned her job because she wasn't being allowed to run the immigration policy and to stop the illegal migration onto the shores of our country from France. She wasn't allowed to do that so she resigned, the accusations made against Liz truss was that she was a far right leader. I mean, incredible stuff. This was coming from inside the Conservative Party because it is unfortunately has always been driven by the European question. And people have started to say that they want actually to make sure that there is still a relationship with the European Union, which is absolutely a basket case. I mean, inflation in France is worse than it is in the UK, having blacked out in Germany. You know, it's absolutely horrendous over any has never been a better science and lead the European Union. Donald Trump said Germany was too reliant on Russian gas. And so it proved. So we need to get to a return and there's plenty of thatcherites who are voting conservative and they're not getting the conservative government. They're asking for.

A New Bill to Reintroduce the GOLD Standard
"Gold standard is back in play right now after a congressman introduced it recently. Just this week, in fact, it was representative Mooney who came forward with a plan Bill to put us back on the gold standard. Just like we were pre Nixon, just like we were from the days of World War II on, right? Because if you go back in time, the history being that we won, we won the war, and we had most gold reserves, and we wound up pegging the dollar to gold, and that was sort of the start of the hegemonic power of the United States of America. Where are you going, honey? Fluffy again. He's crying all over my desk. I let him up here and he's taken over. Pretty soon he's going to be writing all over the keyboard. Anyway, the idea was the U.S. would be able to help sort of regulate the world economy. And that is what we did for so long. But once we lost the gold standard, once we broke that gold standard and we no longer pegged gold to the dollar, well, then we had to, by the way, we had to at the time, there was a lot of stuff going on in France, you know, wanted all its gold back, et cetera, et cetera. So we kind of had to do that, but nonetheless, in light of it, we have been able to print just as much money as we could ever possibly want. I mean,
"france" Discussed on ESPN FC
"Making this stand against companies against products with France, but then you win the World Cup and you have to be subject to being a part of those campaigns. And that's where the contradiction might come back to haunt him. No, again, I say that without fully understanding it because it just wasn't a thing in our day. But you've seen this happen time and time again even back from all day when you had so many bare sponsors in English football and you had players coming out and speaking out about whether they were gambling or beer or whatever but then they had the emblems blazed across the front of their club shoots. And that for me is weird always gets a little bit tricky. And Frank, let's just talk about France overall because there's just so many problems that just want to try and sort out going into the start of the World Cup, which is what just two months away. What's your biggest concern with this French side looking head to defending the title? I'm concerned because, yeah, you have to try to sort all the problems out. Sorry, but at the same time, you know, in I think it was 92 for the European Championship, 2002 for the World Cup, two years ago, 2020 were really 2021 for the European Championship. Everybody made clearly French favorite to win the competition and it always been a disaster. So when in a perfect world, when everything worked well for France, it never works. But when we have issues concern problems, well, we become champion of the world in 1988 with a bad French national team before that is what the press and the media said. When in 2018, everything was everything was perfect. They won the World Cup, and so many times like the Italian did it in 2006, so in 82, with so many problems. I think Latin people need to be problems to be better, maybe, and to make it to make the impossible being possible, and it's what it happened. So I'm concerned, but I know that the character and the personality of the players can allow them to dream of the impossible, which is, again, winning the World Cup. When you think of problems that World Cup and in fighting, you automatically think of the Dutch though, don't you marry you very much. The kings of that. Look, I want to tell but I was definitely part of the, you know, the, I came after, and I think what we have, the Dutch, you know what a thing is, we are definitely a country that allows players to have the conversation with the coach or whatever it is. That's why I jumped in a situation where you were talking about it. But going on, we definitely have the conversation. What we do normally, we have a board. We have a group and we talk about it in some agreements and some disagreements. But away from that, when this happened in the national team, it was, it was an interesting thing because they said that we had two camps. As soon as they mentioned the two camps, it really boiled over and it became a big fight. Eventually, we stepped down, it was a lot of things side tracking of it. And then it calmed down. And everybody went back to his club, and then other things spike them. But what the key thing was, the thing for Holland to come back on track was that everybody had to respect each other again. And I think that is by winning. I've never won it. I mean, Frank is clearly there, so he could talk about it. But I think when you are among players, they want to win a big tournament like that. You all got to respect each other, have the same objective and the coach got to be strong enough to keep you together. And I think that's why the fight and Holland happened because they didn't have that. Mario chakras third favorites going into the World Cup. Where would you have France? Third treasury? Yeah.

So I actually got the chance when I was younger to go. So while my mother, she just didn't trust no one with us. Nobody did my mother ever trust. Especially me, because I was her only child at the time, for many, many, many, many, many, many years. And when she had other children, she entrusted with nobody either. So, she says, so one day I come, I said, mommy, I got the chance to go to Paris. She said, really, I said yes, are you gonna allow me to go? So my mother said, well, let me see. Show me, you know, who are you going with? So I tell her and I show her to take it. So my mother's she reps to take it out. She ripped a ticket up.

"France would appear to have recovered from its spooning by australia. With commendable speed and equanimity though smarting from australia's decision to abandon an agreed. Purchase or french submarines. In favor of buying american france earlier this week concluded a major defense deal with greece. Greece will spend circa five billion euros on french. Built warships and combat aircraft and the two countries have agreed a mutual defence pact. This is not obviously a straightforward case of a rejected partner seeking comfort from heartbreak in the arms of the next available suitor. Major procurement deals are rarely slung together in a week or in the grip of vengeful rage. But france will at least be glad of the timing. Which will remind everybody of france's importance and reminding everybody. Over france's importance has long been a cornerstone of french foreign policy. The details of the deal are approximately as greece will by six further. So rafael fighters bringing total complement operated by the hellenic air force to twenty four. This will please. France which has had much less luck. Exporting the raphael than it did with its approximate predescessor dassault's mirage. The mirage was a huge hit from the nineteen sixties until quite recently notably in africa the middle east and south america. The raphael has thus far sold only to greece in europe and to egypt india and cata outside it though croatia does have a dozen secondhand raphael's on order the hellenic navy meanwhile is believed to have signed up for three french frigates and three corvettes with an option for for the purchases. Greece was known to be keen to significantly upgrade seaborne forces and several countries offered on the tender francis bid was reportedly the most expensive that greece went with any way tells us much about recent history and about the current relationship between the two countries listeners could be forgiven for zoning out of spats between greece and turkey the two countries become more or less constantly and it has been awhile since anything much came of it but last summer you may recall. There was an amount of algae biology in the eastern mediterranean. Turkey was acting in what greece believed an untoward. Lee proprietor fashion about natural gas reserves in the vicinity of cyprus half of which has been since nineteen seventy four eight turkish puppet state recognized by nobody else as legitimate amid indignant maneuverings both diplomatic and maritime there was a prang between the greek frigate nas and the turkish frigate camel race and you may take a wild guess as to who blamed whom battleship what was much more instructive whilst the reaction of france to french. Raphael's were flown to crete and the french helicopter carrier tunnel and the frigate lafayette will ordered to the vicinity in a dispute between two of its nato allies. France had unmistakably picked aside. Greece was clearly grateful. Indeed prime minister carry across mitsotakis. Speaking about this new agreement hailed a very strong alliance that goes beyond the obligations of one to the other in the context of the eu and nato the precise details of any mutual defence clauses. In the new franco. Greek alliance are unclear. That statement will have arched a few eyebrows in ankara. Picking a side in general has been something that french president emmanuel macron has been keen for more european countries to do speaking upon the conclusion of the deal with greece macron admonished europe. To stop being naive and to take its own defense more seriously. He has a case. The donald trump aberration should have been bracing reminded that europe cannot or at least should not take the united states for granted forever. Certainly as macron would see things right now the us urging it submarines on australia reinforces the lesson that america is growing ever more interested in the pacific less so in the atlantic macron's warnings and not entirely selfless no french. President lacks aquin sense of francis grandeur and macron lax it less than most if the us is more focused on china and the uk remains more naturally instead with the us especially now it has departed the eu and embraced orcas then. France is europe's naturally dominant military and diplomatic power since brexit france is now the only country indeed which is a member of the eu an nato and also has a permanent seat on the un security council. Miffed though macron clearly is of australia's snub of francis subs he. Nevertheless senses opportunity in reordering world.

"Last wednesday president biden stepped up to a podium at the white house. I'm honored today to be joined by to america's closest allies. Australia united kingdom joining him. Virtually were uk prime minister boris johnson and australian prime minister scott morrison. The three leaders were announcing a new security partnership in the pacific and the cornerstone of that agreement was a big defense deal. Because we are launching consultations with australia's acquisition of conventionally armed nuclear powered submarines in a deal where tens of billions of dollars. The us agreed to sell nuclear powered submarines to australia. We're joining together. We're partnerships are getting stronger. This is what we're about. It was the kind of new story. Generally fades from the headlines. Pretty quickly except this one didn't because one country had been left out of last week's announcement. France what none of those world leaders mentioned was that the us is new submarine deal with australia would replace a previous submarine deal. That australia had with france and that made france mad. She was view uncle. That's the french foreign minister. John yves le drian in an interview on french radio. The day after the us announcement the draw said he was angry in this radio interview. He completely lashes out at the us. That's our colleague. Matthew dalton he said that the by the administration has stabbed it in the back seat mobile phone say. Uncle don't do. And perhaps worst of all from the french perspective they said that the biden administration was behaving like trump. Said this zoom need at the previous ziebel.

I wanna start on afghanistan In we've covered this Very very closely on the show including The the particularities withdraw. But i'm going to kind of step back with you because you were one of the voices I think challenging the conventional thinking that this was the end of the world that the withdrawal itself was a faulty decision. And i think also speaking to the the fact that the the the the hysteria in some quarters about the withdrawal kind of actually exposed just how divorced from reality aspects of our foreign policy. Discussion are now that we've had a little time. Like how do you reflect on this as an inflection point potentially obviously present biden was trying to make this case at the end of this is inflection point it how is it afghanistan inflection point. In what does it say about. Kind of the disconnect between a lot of the Establish voices on foreign policy in in in kind of the reality that joe biden's dealing first of all. Thanks for the great work team. Have done on this trying to right size our expectation. Thanks for letting me put up a a an opinion crooked. That sort of goes through. What i see is the primary dangerous i'll talk about the inflection point but i you know my real worry. Is that these. Lessons are refusing to be learned by the dc foreign policy establishment.

"To haiti in in cases where you know an individual hadn't lived there in years and years and years and now they're forced to figure out how to live in a country that was basically economic freefall before the president of the country was assassinated and before the experienced another earthquake in july. So i don't just like pausing there bags. I don't wanna sound self righteous about this because this is brutally hard problem for the biden administration. Republicans are going to blame him for everything that happens at the border fairly or not The infrastructure to house people crossing the border is already overwhelmed. talking about this months ago. I'm sure they. The biden team is worried that let's say they figured out a way to grandfather these fourteen thousand people under the gps designation right and let them stay somehow. That consent is more migration but all that said like it is totally fucked up in wrong to deport people to haiti right now given the security situation right like it's deporting. Everyone title to does completely disregard our asylum laws to the point where even chuck schumer is criticizing this decision today so like again. I know i'm like literally sitting in the cheap seats like outside of government. Criticizing one of the hardest things they'll deal with but i'm just wondering if you thought on how they're handling this and what they should do. I did see that. The biden team said they're going to raise the refugee cap back to one hundred twenty five thousand twenty twenty two so that is a sort of a good piece of news on this on the ledger. Here i mean there's there's the image the question around the images that we saw clearly what we should all agree on is that enforcement is grotesque in needs to stop and it's both kind of cruel. It's also like i kept thinking. What does this look like around the world like people watching. This is america. this is still america. Donald trump's not president and this this garbage is still happening and by the way that i failed to mention it. What you're what you're mentioning is like you know. Customs people i see beyond poor seback chasing down. Haitian might yeah. And kind of flogging horrify you know and and kind of reinforces the worst stuff. We've seen in coming into southern europe or you know and dehumanizes these people And then there's this question of sending people back i remember. During the trump years i randomly was in cape verdi. Now don't the guy was hanging out there like a a stop over and on a flight and talking to somebody there now. So what's the issue here you know and it was like a lot of people have been deported back there. Who'd like not live there like you're saying f- for for really long period of time. I mean the the idea of like sending people back to a place that they haven't even lived recently that is in a shambles has multiple challenges in earthquake and political violence. That just doesn't strike me as the humane answer and the thing that combines these two issues the kind of the the appearance in those images and that the issue itself is like this. This feels like it's still a punitive policy. It's punishing people the get to the border and of an orderly rules based kind of legal policy where there's some process other than kind of rounding people up on horseback and putting them on planes to like adjudicate asylum claims in a look. It's a wicked the hard problem. You're correct and like where do you put them. And how do you finance that. And and how do you get more asylum judges but like i think the we have to be going the extra mile to show that this is. This is the kind of being done with with an appreciation for the humanity of these people with like a fidelity to a set of rules. And it's it's not kind of punishing people who are already in dire circumstances to kind of make some demonstrative point you know It's just and look it's it's haiti. We have some ownership yoyo over the centuries for the circumstances that those people find themselves in this is the same argument that i think europeans wrestle with two like. Why should we like take our share of of refugees. Well we created a lot of the circumstances that like contribute to the fact that there's still refugee flows from these places And so that has center into it. Yeah not Chasing people around on horseback treating them like cattle is like the bare minimum the bare minimum. Let's at least clear that bar. Yeah and let's be clear. I'm sure that Allowing people resettling people in the us who cross the border without documentation polls horribly. Yeah figure out a way to do with it. We gotta make the kate. I'm well aware it's horrible. Politics sending someone back to haiti where gangs or kidnapping people were the kitchen. Governments basically will give you a hundred bucks in local currency best of luck like that could be a death sentence for a lot of people and we have to be honest about the stakes here and we should also be clear like joe biden order the border patrol to like chase people on like is it knows this is an out of control. Some of this has to do with like the need to to reform the kind of the way in which agencies like the border patrol and ice operate cause clearly you know when the trump people like unleashed i mean those are already challenging agencies in the bombers i don't want to sugarcoat like trump kind of unleashed i think the kind of fury of of those agencies and so like reforming those has got to be piece of this too big So the un general assembly is this week that is the annual gathering with members. Get together leaders. Give really long speeches. And then they try to coordinate on major issues sort of on the margins. Usually president biden spoke today. Ben the media narrative going into The un general assembly or ungava as we always called it Is that everyone is mad. At joe biden. Because i've ghanistan. They're all pretending that this previously mentioned dustup with france is some sort of big deal and overplaying that Biden has one on one meetings. With boris johnson. Later this week. I believe leaders must rilya indian. Japan are coming to the white house and a few days any big takeaways from from news. We've seen so far there..

"Are more legitimate than others so on the baseline you're right like the australians can buy substance they want. Why wouldn't we want them to buy ourselves And why would we want to have this kind of closer partnership and of course. The french are gonna be pissed. They lost a lot of money. Um it's industrial hit for them I do think it's a little weird that they kind of weren't notified in the sense that like. I don't know how important like surprise was you know like If you had told the french today before something it would have leaked out. Okay you know but even. That's that's a small notification kind of roll out issue right. I think on the bigger issue. There's a couple of things going on one. I think the french are probably going to try to extract some something from us. So hundred part of this is like it's like when you get in a fight with your your friend and you know that you kind of like like you know you did something not wrong but your friend was harmed by something you did here you know and they throw a tantrum and then they're like. Can i borrow your your car next weekend. Like i bet you the french. You're gonna come back in this conversation with biden. They're gonna have some list of asks though one to be made whole in some fashion for this. Yeah i feel like francis brazilian soccer player who was fouled and now is doing. His seventh somersault on the ground. Trying to get the red card like we get it guys. We'll we'll get you back. Need like they could have been invited into this broader alliance could have been aquifer or whatever i mean maybe that's the recommendation aucas for. I mean. well. That was the other point i was going to make it. Is i think important. So you you've heard this. I heard in a in four years of trump i. I'd go to europe. And i get an earful about well. You know. obama started to pivot away from europe. And they're these disagreements on things and then trump comes along and that this builds on a series of issues where the us in france have been out of step and the french didn't like the putin summit didn't feel like they were brought into that. That biden did. But i mean while some of that i think is you know is kind of noise. I think the the the true point. That's hard it's just difficult is that i never understood this argument that saying that. We're pivoting to asia at europe's expense. No because what we're talking about is ending. The wars in the middle east wasn't away from europe. It was away from things. Like the war in afghanistan and the iraq I do think what the biden team needs to do it. Is you actually want europe to pivot to asia with you like we want to have common positions on issues that are implicated by china whether their environmental or human rights economic. We wanna common front with australia. And other countries. I mentioned but also with europe and it would be bad if out of this. The french and the eu. You were like screw you. We're not going to develop a kind of common approach to the indo pacific or to china all these things So i think the biden team does need to figure out a way to kind of find more common ground here but yeah i think some of this is quite performance live And probably going to be used to try to leverage the biden team for for for concessions in other areas. You know macron's been calling nato brain dead for awhile and you know expressing concern about the waning commitment to the transatlantic alliance in us. Going like i i just. I do think there's something real here. There's something touch performance. They're probably really pissed at their intel people for not picking this up ahead of time. I don't know it just hard for me to suss it all that. Yeah i mean the nato peace is always talk about developing and more independent european defense and and frankly that's fine. I mean your europe. Nato can still be the kind of cornerstone of of our lines partnership if you're went to develop some more independent defense capability particularly to deal with challenges in their area. That's fine. I do think it's in america's interest and europe's interest to have a common approach to these issues with china because if you're talking about trader tents if you're talking about democratic backsliding like our basic worldview is pretty is pretty similar to the europeans so i think it'd be mistake on both sides of the atlantic to let these kinds of irritants kind of like distract us the fact that we kind of agree about how we'd like. The world operate like what the rules should be in with the values. We should be upholding like let's get back to basics here and you know. Hopefully the french returned to hasa having ambassador and and the gala party you know. There was cancelled scheduled. They've probably cancelled that day party. That some some celebration of a war that like ended in the seventeen hundreds. Yeah i think like the administration should be like look like emmanuel macron. We owe you one. We'll get you back. Yeah they should dial it down. They should find a way to get him back and they should go an extra mile because we got this subcontract and can move on. Yeah we move on uh speaking of french-speaking friends Canada just voted ben and things that are kind of the same. Yeah justin trudeau. It's going to be prime minister. Still he'll be. The head of a minority government took trudeau had called this. Snap election the couple years early because he wanted to win more seats in parliamentary system and gain outright parliamentary majority of voters said. I don't think so. We're a little pissed. The you call this election in the middle of the fourth wave of covert so it looks like liberals will end up with around one hundred fifty eight seats The conservatives will end up with around one hundred nineteen seats With the numbers are about the same. The new democrats will get around twenty five seats any big takeaways from you from this election. I listen to you guys. Analysis of kind of the california recall thing It's kind of a similar result in the in the sense that it's basically what shows. His politics actually hasn't changed that much in canada And what's different here. Is a trudeau himself. Called the election. But but i think it it shows you that this this idea of having Like a minority lead trudeau led government with a A partnership with the more progressive party like people pretty much comfortable with that and and people should keep in mind here that even though it's a minority government if you add together the liberals and the end ep like this is a center left. Progressive government So to me again far far preferable to a conservative government. Even though the canadian conservatives aren't quite as insane as is our conservatives So yeah it's kind of status garanti and i think the message that i presumably digested by the trudeau team is like stability you know. And and kind of plug forward and and make the best of this arrangement rather than going for the majority is kind of the the order of the day now. Yeah that makes sense So the russians also had elections or at least they pretended to have elections Those russian elections are bullshit before they start because the most popular opposition figures people like election of all new. We've talked about before or not even allowed to run in the first place But the cheating doesn't end there a partial results of the election. Release on sunday. They seem to show that opposition parties had made gains but then when the full final quote unquote official vote was released on monday by russia's central election commission. You'll be surprised to hear that that lead or that progress for opposition parties had been erased and that putin's united russia party was firmly in control and will keep supermajority and parliament. Opposition leaders are particularly angry about delays tabulating online voting It seems like that was the place where they fucked with the vote. Tabulations the most So far been the reaction has been pretty muted. There have been huge protests like there were in twenty eleven one foreign development that did come out of this election like around. It was Actually involves american tech companies so navales allies created app. That was supposed to help. Russians coordinate essentially that protest votes To help you figure out like okay..

"It's a different thing. You know. Because i was reflecting on this. Just come back from the uk and it's incredibly hard gets over in the uk because it's every way you know you've got like advertising in the cheap you know. It's all the time on tv programs. Like every cooking program it's so normalizes absolutely everywhere and english culture revolves around that festive drinking binge drinking pablo so i was like a got back and also while you know like actually even though france had its own challenges in a way. It's been easier because i don't have to do with that. I don't have to deal with my family system. I don't have to deal with my friend system. I've been able to kinda do on my and being drunk because a woman again. This is something that. I kind of struggled against. Because i'm a feminist but being drawn because women in france is no well seen so this certainly was that kind of backlash like yeah. You know rain. In so i did have that kind of reaction to at one point. I would have a drink with alerts like and they loved it. They were like wow this. Go drinking whiskey and cognac with us so in that sense the drinking too much in france is not celebrated but as you say not being able to drink tool is almost offensive. Because it's you know it's pride of fraud. It's kind of like jogging recently. Because i've got. I've got issues and knows i all my goodness i'm going to be that past. Doesn't drink red wine. Eat dairy or like you know like. I'll be a social pariah. Actually people i think when you frame it in a positive way to frame it through health. It's like because the french so health conscious Just so say i just you know. I'm i'm just. I feel so much better when i drink tool i still get those comments and there is a narrative in france that still very black and white like either an alcoholic. The disease model which is still talked about in france. Which luckily we're moving away from anglo saxon culture so i have had a couple of times where people at dinner parties across the table. We like say. What are you in alcoholic slightly inappropriate. And now i wished i just so said yeah. I am and walk. Do you know what i mean. i mean i use that time. I'm no in twelve step program. It's not something that. I don't let labour myself as an alcoholic. Purely because i i knew and have experienced of end stage dependency and drinking and that wasn't where i was so it's kind of in respect for their own amazing journey to get out of that place. You know there is this gray area. And that certainly where i was you know i. I could stop by myself without any kind of medical intervention. it was hodge. But i could do it but it was very much so social relationship to alcohol rather than end stage thing so i think that's a respect but france. They don't know any of that. They're just like your either an alcoholic a new on the streets or your have one of wine and season. Doesn't it over the years just to Away and have your own way of dealing with it. I'm quite proud to be released is whereas i used to be terribly embarrassing. Yeah yeah i mean. I think it's like with any of that. So recovery journey is it takes time..

"The reaction of the population in general In the sense that for example they have made these crazy declarations Some of the experts on television one of them said a we. We will force vaccinate people even if we have to come at your home on with a yes on with policemen on another one said you know The new threats is the antibac- says it's not the virus anymore because we can fight. We can treat. That is yantai taxes and what is really exception. I believe is that the population is not reacting in what could be expected as relief fighting each other baxter's you know again anti and so they will go together out in the street and they say you know some people say i have been vaccinated again to safety bass. I won't freedom. i want medical freedom. I want this country to remain in the country of liberty. And we're not gonna take it so that's one very positive. Sign for another example is Some hospitals you know in the icy news where people just Went on strike against. We have no covet patients here. We have nobody. So we're we're just stopping it. In the beginning of the pandemic everybody was clapping in their hands. We were the heroes and now we are detroiters because we don't want to be vaccinated and so They just stopped working and said we're stopping in until you know we get it done so i don't know what's going to happen. It's but it's so extreme. What has been announced. Almost let's say mandatory vaccination of almost every professional category except for the police. Yes yes except for the police so but a lot of the police and those are. The military are reciting with population. So we don't know what's going to happen well. It's certainly up in the air everywhere. But i am. You know it's really inspiring to hear that the people are standing together that they're not pointing each other out and i think that that is a beautiful thing and as soon as you said it you know. I was reminded that our statue of liberty is a gift from france. And the idea of liberty really truly is in you know coursing through the bloodstream of the people of france. So our hearts are with you and all of your friends in france and I i'm so proud of them for the way they've stood up and you know and i'm glad to hear that we show these images of police that are being very brutal but it is nice to know that some of them are dropping their hands and standing with the people. So we'll just see how this all plays out. Actually if i can just come into a little bit on that because what's happened you have to put it in account state context it. You see germany had a lot of protests during during the whole year on the uk in other countries and france. Not so much. You have to remember that. There was the yellow vest movement two years ago and so so the people have been on the streets for owes more than a year every week and already the repression was extremely violent. The police repression. The black blocks are very very aware that the government is working with anti foul black blocks. Or whoever you want to call them. And so They're very aware of this. When we know that the repression has been extremely violence. So what could happen. Is that European forces orrin nato forces circle than If the actually local Many times the local police or even people in the army say they don't want to fight against the people and so Yeah that's that's the risk that other versus would intervene. We hope not and center. Thank you for those details that you know as i've said as we look around the world. I don't know that you're seeing our news. We're really not seeing yours.

"I think the one nation that stands out in amongst many. Because it's had such an about face and you know when we talk about france. Is we think about. I think about les miz. I mean i grew up. That was the one of the biggest shows on broadway We know about the french revolution. But then this musical that captured our hearts and minds about the student revolution standing up for their rights and and better living circumstances all of that so the power of these people the french to stand up. We've seen them marsh for different reasons whether it was for better wages and you know those arguments that were happening for the pandemic came. Well now the boom has dropped macron. Has you know pushed these this vaccination policy and Passports in the future and clearly these images that are coming out of france are some of the most shocking. These are brothers and sisters and is this really just a glimpse into our future. The future of every nation if when we think about if there is some global agenda and some smaller group of governing beings that are driving this. What is it they want. And is france enacting it exactly the way they want. How is it. They want the entire world to respond. When we look at france. Ask yourself is. My president is my leader as my prime minister in meetings where they're asking this to happen to my nation take a look at this thousands of protestants descendant of pirates during the bastille day celebrations on wednesday as many believed.

"It's already everything's established and People don't fight for position anymore. So obviously this was. This was a complete surprise for for you know you see a crash like this in the first week. I can say okay. You know it's everybody wants to be in front. But this was at a moment where i don't think the writers were fighting for position. There they were. They were going fast. That's for sure but you know. It was not as stressful as in certain stages. We've seen in the first week. Even you know as regular cyclists we've been in scituate thinking about that surface when they showed the road it looks really rotten and we've all been on rides where you're you're on some really lot rough chip in seal and all sudden u-turn and hit a new section of road that smooth and it's like it's like this whole relief on your body it it's it's brutal that's It can it can just really It's it's more fatigued than i think. A lot of people real. That's gonna resort areas of france or have this kind of pavement. It's it's it's tough. It's tough combined with the heat than i mean that part of france. Obviously i saw the road surface. And you know. I have memories of of racing and you know racing on these kind of roads. It's hard you know it's a lot. I mean it adds a lot due to the toughness of the course already. You know you you feel like you're you're bike doesn't go smoothly you know it's like you have to always push work the bike and of course you know if you you crash on those roads at has it. It's a lot. It's a lot worse also on smooth pavement. So i mean that was a little guys down i mean. Luckily a lot of them went off in the grass and it looks spectacular. But i don't think the injuries are going to be that bad for some of them but Those who hit the pavement. That was that was stuff to see a lot of raw meat. Yeah yeah another thing of interest. Today that i think is our say we think is progress for cyclists as a union is a group. Is that you know we've had three k. Rule in effect for some time. Which means if there's a crash within the last three kilometers they get the same time and it takes a lot of that pressure off. Let's the sprinter's do what they do. Today they've made an adjustment because the writers asked for the app today today. You know as far as i know it was only for today. They changed the tree kilometer rule to four and a half kilometers which is obviously depending on the course so That was a request from the writers union. Do they could think they could foresee that. This was going to be a bunch sprint and When looking on the map or when scouting the course. They saw that. There was some difficulties in the in the on the course with for between five and four kilometers to go So that request came and this time the uci did approve it. So i think that's progress. I think that's that's good. You know it's it's a pity they didn't do it in the first week. You know We would have had some less crashes but still you know it's It's a good thing And hopefully this sets a precedent that they can actually be flexible on this three kilometer rule depending on the course i've i've said I made a suggestion to always do it when the city limits start because then typically you get into more construction. More houses more turns But you know if they could be flexible on it and and make a decision based on every every finish. I think that would be a great Great step forward so that was good good to see today are before we talk about tomorrow and get into some email comments and questions. Here's lance to tell you about one of our show partners here on j. b. squared today show also brought to you by rocca.
