"french government" Discussed on The Peter Schiff Show Podcast

"We finally see a big drop in the value of the us dollar. But i just read a story that the french government was going to try to protect its consumers from increasing natural gas electricity costs. They're doing all sorts of things to keep prices from moving up even higher. I think they may be delaying certain tax hikes that were already built into the budget for energy. Or maybe they're going to roll back some existing hikes. I'm not really sure what type of price controls this might involve or some kind of subsidies where the french government pays money directly to utilities or other providers. So that the costs are not directly born by the consumer but of course all of this is counterproductive and politically motivated because the elections are coming up and so the french government doesn't want voters to be pissed off about their rising electric bills. But the reality is if the government doesn't cut back on its spending so it simply delays or reduces taxes on energy but does it cut spending to offset this loss of revenue. It's just the shifting of the burden of the cost of energy from the consumer to the taxpayer and the same thing would be true if the government directly reimbursed companies for their costs. Keep them from raising prices. Since in many cases the tax payer and the energy consumer are the same person. All that's happening is that the government is giving you money with one hand and then taking it away from you with the other except maybe you don't notice the government's hand in your back pocket as it's putting money into your front pocket. Of course they're going to be some people in france who don't pay taxes at they're on welfare and so all they do is pay the energy bill in which case the tax payer is actually on the hook for more because not only does he have to pay the cost of his own increased energy bill albeit in the form of higher taxes but he has to pay even higher taxes to cover the cost of somebody else's energy bill that is not paying taxes but the bigger problem with what the french government is trying to do is that it will actually exacerbate the very problem. And this is the problem with government..

"Today we're talking about westward expansion. Yes earnings comforting. Yes in the united states yes so in eighteen zero three president. Thomas jefferson bought the territory of louisiana from the french government. For fifteen million dollars. This was known as the louisiana purchase. That was a lot of money back then. It was a ton of money. I wonder what it translates to today. Do that just curious know sure. It's like billions of dollars. Yeah so that. Land stretched from the mississippi river to the rocky mountains and from canada to new orleans so that like mid section it doubled the previous size of the then young united states and as as soon as jefferson signed the treaty. He sent the explorers lewis and clark to find a route to the pacific ocean. Many other explorers made the journey as well and so began the expansion of the country to jefferson. Westward expansion was the key to the nation's health. Jefferson believed that a republic depended on an independent virtuous citizenry for survival and that independence. Virtue went hand in hand with landownership especially up small farms. He wrote quote those who labor. The earth are the chosen people have gone. Wow yeah it doesn't correlate to me but okay yeah right so you're virtuous visuals and land or work. Yeah ok you work. Land make something from it. Honest work i suppose. Yeah if you're thinking kind of thing you take away like what we know about him. I'm think stop thinking of him as a person and the right he wanted the country to expand. And i think he planted the seed for the pioneers. Till i look you know you can go right. Make something something for yourself. Yeah so in. But in order for jefferson's dream for the country to come to fruition expansion had to happen so he maybe the country the dream of the country came first. And then thought okay. I need to have more land <hes>. People to do <hes>. So while the westward expansion is one of the defining themes of the nineteenth century american history. This growth was certainly fraught with struggle and won't get into that way by almost about forty years later. Nearly seven million americans forty percent of the nation's population now lived in this area. Well they know that way from eight eighteen three from eighteen hundred eight forty k. So pretty quick. Wake seven million. That's pretty big. Most people left their homes in the east and followed lewis and clark across the country as promised they were searching for economic opportunity like jefferson. Many of these painters believed that they would find land to farm trusting that ownership would lead to freedom in nineteen eighty five. Sorry wow a lot in eighteen forty five. A journalist named john o'sullivan put a name to this idea. That helped pull the pioneers to the west. He said that it was americans.

Right ideas are planted in their head. Like if you go out there you will make your money. you'll survive you'll be happy. Happiness is just. Yep exactly yeah you'll have your own lambs have all the freedom that you'll have yeah <hes>. So that term became controversial. You know throughout time. Meanwhile meanwhile while this kind of happening the question of whether slavery would carry onto to the west was at hand around this time. The missouri compromise was made which attempted to resolve the question of whether or not slavery would be allowed in the new western states <hes>. That the louisiana purchase sort of like you know was responsible for create <unk>. Them so this whether slavery would be in. These new states shadowed almost every conversation about the frontier. The compromise admitted missouri to the union as a slave state and may had to change main to a free state had they needed to have. They had to preserve the fragile balance in congress between us owning states in nonstop hunting state. Yes i say. I'm surprised that main was asleep. At i mean because she just think of the south. But i know. I'm know an i don't really know actually <unk> slave-owning or they like the changes such. Yeah just to keep that the same number okay. Half-and-half just have to say i know going.

It always had to be part of the conversation. Yeah it's crazy for another strong decade. A yeah i think even on that of course of an attorney but while they're formation was been the biggest conversation sure. Oh yes right. See that the okay. So the missouri compromise also stipulated that slavery would be prohibited north of the southern boundary of missouri. So the the thirty six degree latitude line okay <hes>. It couldn't be north. Slavery couldn't be north of that but missouri was north of that so i think like after missouri said that they were going to be a slave. Nobody else could that was it. Yeah grandfathered in so many.

DDT would arrange for virtual sit ins in which they would schedule a coordinated effort to attack a specific target, like the White House servers, and then users would all use that drop down menu to launch their individual attacks as a big collective. So as a collective of individual attacks in that sense it again In this case, it was a voluntary action. It wasn't like they were infecting computers and trying to, uh Take them over without the user's consent. In 2000 Michael Cow, say teenage hacker who used the handle, Mafiaboy launched a series of distributed denial of service attacks against high profile targets like Yahoo, Amazon, del and others. He also attempted to attack the DNS system by targeting several of the route name servers. He had compromised computers at university networks and used them to send traffic to his targets. It would overwhelm the targets. And years later, he would say the whole purpose behind it was so he could impress and intimidate other hackers. So he was doing it for the online street credit. In other words, he was eventually tracked down by agencies like the FBI and got a pretty light punishment. All things considered. He was sentenced to eight months and a youth group home. And part of the reason for the relatively light sentence is that the law was dragging behind technology because it's hard to charge someone with a crime when you don't have a law defining that crime yet. This is something we've seen in technology over and over where the developments of tech have outstripped the social constructs like law in 2007 in Russia, a massive DDOS attack shut down, not just a site or made a service slow it actually shut down. Internet coverage for entire cities. The attack was aimed at an Internet service provider, and it was so effective that the provider went offline multiple times in waves of attack that hit over the period of a month. So they would get back up and then they would be hit by another attack and would go down again at the peak of an attack. Traffic being sent to the provider reached 10 gigabytes per second, which was pretty darn staggering back in 2007. Later Anonymous. The most famous secret society of activists and techno anarchists began to make use of voluntary but nets to attack targets. They urged people who wanted to lend their computers power to an attack to download software called the low orbit Ion cannon. This would make the user's computer join a large but net which then could be directed to attack specific targets. Essentially, this is what hackers often try to do through tricking others to install malware. Only in this case anonymous was outright saying, Hey, your computer is going to be part of this if you download the software, so if you want to help bring down the man Download and install it Now that wraps up this episode in our next one, we're going to talk more about how de DOS works and also the various strategies that people and companies used in order to try and mitigate the effects of de dos.

"If they wanted schools and businesses to remain open. And now you are seeing cases rising and you're having to close the schools. I'm wondering what you think is behind this. I mean, obviously, there is some politics at play here. Some people simply don't believe the Corona virus is a problem. I think that we have an attitude in Montana of local control and independence. And so the use of masks and restrictions and so forth doesn't set well with a large portion of our population. And the public debate that's been going on about the science and what we understand about this virus in particular. That debate is raging across the country, and Montana is no exception to that. But I think that for the most part in our schools across Montana and here in great falls Because of the strict protocols that we put in place in our schools for sanitation, physical distancing the worrying of masks. We haven't seen The outbreaks in our schools. But I am curious because people do take cues from their elected leaders, and it has taken on Lee until now from Montana to put in new restrictions, including a statewide mass mandate. Do you think this should have happened sooner? And when you talk about a sort of debate about the science, that debate seems to be happening within one sector of society, and I'm not really at large. We had a debate at the board of Health. We had a public forum where we took him put on tightening the restrictions and my encouragement all along to our community is let's do the right things for the right reasons on a person by person basis instead of having Have our public officials imposed restrictions and so forth and appeal to People's personal sense of responsibility to take care of others. And maybe that appeal came a little too late. What is your biggest way right now for your district? Oh, I think overall obviously the health and safety on the mental health and well being of our staff so that they can Teach our Children and the stress that they have been under this fall. They worry about mental health and the overall well being of our students when we're not able to meet with him face to face and The fact that as a isolate and become more distance from their peers and from their teachers that has an effect on their psychological, and you know they're effective growth and development. And I can I'm concerned about that. Sounds like you have a lot on your shoulders. Yeah, It's uh It is a concern and in a, uh, an issue that I take seriously daily. Ah, lot of lot of prayer and a lot of concern for others in our community. I have an excellent team of people here. Tom War is the superintendent of Great Falls. Public schools in Great Falls, Montana. Thank you very much, and we'll be thinking of you. Thank you, Lulu. I appreciate it. Thank you to the listeners. Europe, like the U. S, is again reeling under a coronavirus resurgence. But unlike the U. S, most European countries introduced lockdowns and other tight restrictions after the pandemic picked up speed in October. The World Health Organization, says that the region faces a tough six months ahead. But experts say the restrictions are beginning to produce some results. Joining us now to talk about the situation in Europe is NPR correspondent Eleanor Beardsley in Paris. Hello. Hi, Lulu. How bad is it? Louis bad, you know, huge rise in cases and deaths. Health systems are being pushed to the limit in France. ICU beds are at 95% capacity for the last two weeks, and even Germany is showing signs of strain Here is Hans Clue. He's the head of the World Health Organization. Europe, speaking on Thursday last week Europe registered over 29,000 new Covet 19. That's That is one person dying every 17 seconds in European region from covert 19. That's a shocking statistic. But tell us what's being done. I mean, there is a lockdown in France. What's the situation for a long time, The French government said they would not institute a second locked down. But then French President Emmanuel Macron went on television in at the end of October, and he laid out different possible scenarios to curb the virus. And he said, Actually, a full lockdown was the on Lee way to keep the country's health. System from collapse. But I will say it's not a strenuous his last time bars, restaurants and nonessential businesses are closed. But this time schools are in session. You still have to fill out a form every time you want to go out, stating the reason you know you have one on your phone, and I was actually stopped by police Today. I usually go out twice a day once for my walk and to the grocery store. Elsewhere. You know, Spain has a national curfew and is in a health state of emergency. Italy has a nationwide curfew and regions are classified 12 or three according to the gravity of the situation. If you're in Naples, a red zone, you can't leave your region and you're supposed to stay home except for you know necessary outings, and even Germany has a federal lockdown through the end of November. And is it producing results? It is producing results. Slight results. French health officials have talked about it. And the W H o so they don't want to let up too soon. But it does seem to be working. And is anyone protesting the measures. You know, Lulu? We don't see anything like we see in the US we did see, you know, the police in Berlin break up thousands of anti lock down protesters this week. But, you know the majority of Germans support the restrictions. Even Ah, poll recently in Spain showed that people are ready to go into a national lockdown. If it will help despite you know, devastation to the economy. So let's talk about that. Why is there not more fear of economic devastation in the U. There is fear of it every day you hear about businesses closing, but European governments are spending billions. To keep companies going, You know, from major companies like Air France to mom and pop stores, and it keeps the unemployment down and people from losing their skills. Listen here to what the French economy minister said this week. New petition is until please it. Is that all you so basically, he said. Our goal is to reassure French citizens We're gonna get through this. We're gonna protect companies and people through the duration of this virus. But still, stores and businesses have lost so much and they're clamoring to reopen in the holiday season, and the French and other Europeans have a lot of hope in the vaccines coming up, and frankly, they're just hoping to get this under control enough to be able to salvage some sort of Christmas this year.

Coronavirus: Paris to shut bars and raise alert to maximum

"Will shut all nightclubs completely from tomorrow on after the French government raised the city's Corona virus alert to the maximum level. The news from Paris is not good covert infections are up above 250 per 100,000 people, which means the city's hit on higher alert level. And automatically new measures are going to kick in the headline news is that bars and cafes we're going to shut completely for two weeks from tomorrow. They were already having to close doors at 10 o'clock, but that hasn't been enough to stop the virus spreading. There's some respect for the hard hit hospitality trade restaurants and bistros, which also expected to be told to shut can stay open if they observe new rules as

Airbus' Ambitious Hydrogen Plans

"I'm happy to welcome with me on the program senior editor, Guy Norris and tier to our France Bureau chief who as you surely know if you read ideation? Gregory is an expert in aerospace technology subjects to. This week, we are going to talk about three aircraft concepts that Abbas presented for the first time. They are very different from each other in many ways, but they do have one thing in common they are supposed to be powered by hydrogen. And Abbas Vision in the transformation of aviation into a greener more sustainable, future exciting ideas but lots of questions too. So let's take a step back I wonder if I can ask you to just walk us through the plans that Abbas. Presented this week. Sure So basically, there are three concept plaints. At the center of the city they called him supplies because none of them will actually be built but three directions that are going to be studied in depth. One of them is looks like turboprop aircraft to wing configuration. I think the maximum. Capacity would be around one hundred passengers. The other one. Sorry. The first one, I mentioned a because it would burn hydrogen in relatively conventional outside rented conventional. Engine turbines. The second concept plane is also conventional Tuban Wing country duration from be powered by two defense number props to defense money hydrogen. Again, capacity is between one, hundred, twenty, two, hundred passengers, and just like the first concept plane the shooting hydrogen attack is located at the rear of the fuselage and the third concept is definitely the most spectacular. It's a blended wing but. Again powered by defense. So often concepts contemplates both hundred ten. Engines but the big difference, the May feature of the sudden is the blend buddy consideration, which means you can much more optimize hide myrow dynamics, and you can also dispute passengers and fuel tanks. I, know much more efficient way in the in. So. Roughly speaking this, all three concepts that are is. Speaking about so we're we're kind of fifteen years right I mean they're talking about enter enter into service in twenty thirty five but already, they're making some very important technology choices you mentioned liquid hydrogen for instance can just walk Ciragan. You know what are the steps that are coming up in between now and twenty, thirty five so between now one, twenty, thirty, five, the and again, twenty thirty five is the plant date for entry to service our first main Maislin if she wishes twenty twenty-five by then they expect to have majored some technology bricks as they. Call them to choose from and they would launch a program in twenty, twenty, seven or twenty, twenty eight. So that would be a food program for the Industrial Program between or twenty degrees and would would be very, very informative for us to follow is the next five years they plan to do several demonstrations. So they will demonstrate that technology bricks such as hydrogen storage, for example, and one of the most demonstration projects is about hydrogen storage and distribution they were stopped on the ground, but they also plan some instructional on the sorry in the era in. which could be quite a spectacular and they plan quite. Surprised by this, they plan to start with gaseous hydrogen storage demonstration before moving to liquid, and as they seem to have made a choice ready for liquid hydrogen meet surprised by the fact, they are going to also test guess. So Guy. Abbas. Seems to be really enthusiastic about this and it's kind of came out of nowhere but it came a bit of as a surprise to me. That's enthusiasm isn't really shared by everyone in an industry particularly in the engine industry they're still seem to be quite some serious reservations about this. So can you tell us what what what you're hearing? Yeah Hi there. It's basically a very is a very interesting time because, of course, the engine manufacturers like the fray manufactures they're all facing this kind of cliff of how do we meet the sustainability targets in really thirty years seems like a long time but but in the aerospace business, it's really not They've got. So they've they've been approaching this idea of whether to adopt the new transformational approach. Mostly based on alternative fuels, which would be dropping into the existing kind of infrastructure, the existing propulsion designs and the existing tube and wing configurations that the framers of loved and developed and perfected for the past fifty years all nor so you can imagine that there is a bit of a shock going on here to how do we suddenly move all of that towards a hydrogen based ecosystem. Of course, the other thing is that they've saying, well, you know we have been that before we've studied this, we started in the nineteen fifties, for example, more based for military type applications again, in the seventy s during the fuel crisis when they the first global fuel crisis and again in the nineties when there was the first glimmers of the emerging environmental issues this time of course, it's different as you both said, you know the there is a driving force has never been there before, and of course, the the French government tying the. Incentive. Package really to sustainability is the big decision making sort of driver on this. So you know the fact that. There's much more urgent need now is is changing the game, but doesn't change the fact that there is seventy years of history of safety and certification and development behind a no operational cycle around kerosene people know how to handle it. They know how to certify it, and this is a whole new ballgame. So why would you know bus get buy in from the other industry participants if that wasn't possible for one reason or another over the past? Several decades well I mean one of the thunder, the reasons that time does move on and technology has improved. They're all ways of coping now as a couple of ways to look at it. One is from a big picture perspective. The big challenge that a lot of them see both in and out of aerospace is the fact that they feed stalking. The actual production of hydrogen has to be done in a sustainable way to make this entire equation balance

Tiffany Files Lawsuit Against LVMH To Enforce Merger

"Let's turn to the latest developments in the ongoing legal battle between the US jewelry giant Tiffany and French luxury group lvmh. Last November lvmh agreed to acquire Tiffany, but tiffany has since accused of trying to run down the clock in order to let the deal run out of time. So then now trying to fast track the process well, Dana Thomas is the author fashioned police, the price of I fashion and the future of clothes, and to say, she joins us once again from Paris good morning. Good Morning. So bring us up to date in a story that twists and turns an awful lot. Well. This is this is the third time in my career that lvmh's done this week it's become a big big the deal the takeover deals become a big news story. They did it with Gucci they did it with our they lost both of them, and now they're doing it with tiffany and we'll see what happens the latest news is yesterday. The Delaware Court of Chancery where because they'll tiffany is registered in the state of Delaware. In the United States. Has, set a digital hearing date for four day trial starting January fifth and they're gonNA. They're if they don't settle this beforehand, they're going to go to trial and tiffany is pushing for the trial November while Lvmh, wanted it in March or April. So the courts split the split the difference in set it for January this is important because it's right before the US regulatory approval for the sixteen point two, billion dollar acquisition expires on February third. This is the largest bid for a takeover that lvmh did and it's I think the largest ever in the in the luxury industry. She doesn't want to pay that much now and understandably so. Tiffany is down. Had A first-half operating loss of forty, five, million dollars a loss of forty five in the same time. Last year, it had earnings of three, hundred, forty, five, million. So they feel like, yeah, we made this bid last November before Kovic. Everything else hit and Tiffany was thriving and now it's not worth sixteen point two, billion dollars. We'd like to reevaluate that and Tiffany's like saying too bad for you. Well, neither seemed to be giving any leeway on this because toughen says that it it doesn't see what has to cut its prices. It's ready to go to court and LVMH's saying start rushing us because you know the reason why I'm trying to Russia's you don't want us to look at the way that you handle your books during cove it. Well, it's not even just handling the books. All the stores were closed out around the world and people still ordered online. Could you would you order a ending tiffany jewelry online? Have it delivered to your mailbox? I don't think so unless you really needed to get married and that was that but I think that Tiffany Tiffany is. Really pushing for the most important thing which is that you know if they if they go to court lvmh. Chairman. Bernard Arnault could be deposed in the case and asked if he pressured the French government to help give the French group and out is the with this deal because the French government is the ones who stepped in and said, you know we're not going to you can't do this so. The firm, you know originally said that they were dropping this because of a US trade dispute, which is you know. Not terribly clear. So are no what have to swear you know in the courthouse on a Bible or or not in the courthouse because it'll be digital and say no I didn't ask the government to given how well connected he is with the government and with. President. Matt Cole. I wonder and and I'm not the only one to wonder and obviously tiffany wonders, and so it'll be interesting to see how that plays out. Dana how is this going to play out given the fact I mean you mentioned the fact that Lvmh's attempts to by the likes of Gucci didn't work out. Right well, there's a couple of different scenarios. The first one is it tiffany gets. To close the deal at the original price. I, doubt that's going to happen because Bernardo is a really shrewd businessman and he does not overpay. The second one is that the deal is done at a lower prices previously agreed they get some mediators in there they work it out before you tiffany's a publicly traded company. This could really make their their stock collapsed to a point that you know they're really. Hurting thirties at you know Arno. Tries to go hostile takeover because it is a publicly traded company and starts buying tiffany on the public market at a reduced price and eventually has so much that he says, boom I'm owner of the company too bad for you.

"This is what if global coin. What if libra became the I could see out what there's no? If there's no Vig going to the banks, it became a dominant form of payment. It's how you do in an I we use pay pal. We have international hosts we you. We have to use. It's easier for us to use pay pal to support is interesting on this. Yeah. For sure. I'm sure there's enough revenue to go around. I'm sure they'll figure out a way to get something out of it. But, but to me, this doesn't strike me from at least, certainly for Facebook's point of view as either a pl- economic play. Like we're gonna make a lot of money on this. Although they might have a hand in every transaction going forward. That's Amazon's plan. Right. And I don't think this is a privacy thing. I think that's missing the poll point of this. If you say all Facebook's just doing this, so they can get more information about all transactions. I think this is a power play. I think this is Facebook saying who needs a government who needs banks. Imagine being paranoid Davinder. No, I think I think that's probably a good way to look at it. It's to me, it's a little less scary than something like the portal that they, you know, they're, and I should point I have I have two of them, which because. Well, I thought I need to talk to the other one. It makes us which is good tech. But probably came at the wrong time for them. Whereas this like, yeah, it does seem like a power. It does seem like how can we be a global superpower? What if we what if we didn't need banks? What if we could just manage our own ecosystem, you know, it's preparing us for the world of the future, where we're all living in VR, and just buying stuff digitally. He'll make sense. Yeah. And I guess I'm not the only one is paranoid, because the French government has already said, we're investigating and Facebook is going to have to go to congress next month to explain explain yourself Facebook, because there's some, I think reasonable concern in government about what is Facebook up to. So maybe I'm not completely paranoid. Although lately, getting getting grilled by congress is just kind of table stakes for anybody who wants to play this game. Yeah, I thought it was interesting on that the congress investigation articles that I've been reading that it's both. It's a sort of a bipartisan suspicion of this plan, and you can you can easily see what, what in what sort of stakes that each side is thinking about one side's thinking about the sort of social and data privacy. Implications on one side is thinking about, but banks. Stepping in and taking over banks. So it, it is interesting that it is a bipartisan concern. That's, that's a the expressed here if you think about banks, not just central banks national bags but just Bank commercial banks that really are an important constituency to congress. I would imagine. They spend a lot of money on congress. Congress has a certain sense of responsibility to banks, and I'm sure that's what some of this is. And and, and honestly. I, I some so torn about this because as you probably gathered, I'm not a fan of Facebook, but at the same time anything that dissenter mediates, especially banks. I think that's a good thing. So I don't know what we're gonna come down on this one. Well, it's so easy to, to sort of fast forward a few years and imagine that, you know, the kind of investigation that's been going on over the last couple of years about the Russian involvement in the two thousand sixteen presidential election than the campaigns. It's so easy to imagine a couple years down the road, this whole obfuscation that happens as a result of this all happening through Swiss Bank. And with a, you know, there's some data trail, of course. But yes rail instead of subpoenaing Deutsche Bank. Who are you going to subpoena, if it's Lieber coin? Yeah. That is a real concern..

And it was all very complicated. The BBC's Andrew Walker's in London. Hi, andrew. Hello, david. There were high hopes for this merger. The idea was, maybe this could signal a kind of coming together in Europe, the way we think of Airbus, being a multinational, European consortium, but it was not to be well that suddenly the way it looks at the moment. The reason that this fellow Paul was because the French government, which has a fifteen percent stake in Reynaud simply for more time now according to the finance, but it's a brutal, the envy reason hails from more time was because he wanted to ensure that the Japanese Makinson Nissan, who has a slightly smaller shareholding in was on bold and the signs that they were going to abstain at the vote, quite surprising. I think for many people that fit Chrysler so rapidly decided to call the whole thing off. So I don't think you can completely discount the possibility that this. Idea might be revived. But for the moment, at least, I certainly have to conclude that it is the released. Dp Dumond, the BBC's Andrew Walker.

I guess if you get if you're tractive and you get naked let somebody polaroid of playboy headquarters in Chicago at the time. That means you've come on tell us untruthfully that vaccination might give your kid autism. Well, thank you, Jenny. It says some people making America great again. Some people are making America more AMIS again. That accused of 'em mixed. Martial arts making measles, America. Whatever they go. Decades of neglect threaten Notre Dame. Well before it burned. I just want to say something about Notre Dame few interesting things, especially being on the heels of Easter. The French government owns said Notre Dame Notre Dom here. I go again, the Chicago poll Aachen me, see, they had the tell me because I I that's that's how my my my little Brian works. Okay. But the French government owns any churches on in their country made after a certain point. Our four before certain point, excuse me. And they're such their secular country as we all know. And so but put a Sherwin bend and make sure that Islam gets put up on a pedestal. But that's another point the French government is secular and note, Notre Dom gets forty thousand thirty forty thousand visits a day, and they don't put the money. They should. And Catholics in America have been asked before all this to to contribute money to Notre Dom to which I'd say, no. But here it is. And it's thong decades neglect. The thing was absolutely from the Wall Street Journal. Just absolutely a joke and how poorly maintained it was. And then you have these billionaire Frenchmen like Louis Vuitton LV giving tons of money. And then you've got these clowns protesting that too. Well, because in France, it's like it's like what beta wants to do here and Elizabeth Warren at all. They wanna make it. So that we have like nine weeks year mandatory off three day weekends. And you know, whatever and some rich person that owns the American version of Louis Vitton can pay for it. Until we get all that and free health care and free tuition, free everything. Gosh, darn we're going to be upset. But the irony of sadness of a second nation not taking care of it's one of its most important things, the irony and sadness of a second nation revering something, by the way crying out and saying oh my God. Who am I got really? Well, you don't care much about him but uses when things burn down. Interesting observations. From me. From one little person over here or there.

Hey, Chris, you know, that Norodom Notre Dame thing is not just a fiction. That's a lot of us have that. Thank you. I'm glad to know that I'm not as bad as I've been, you know, I've been I've been self flagellating let the Catholics living myself over here. Go ahead, sir. Hey, listen. You're earlier you were talking about the cartels. And and and how it's in their interest to bring people across the border, and I don't agree with that. But what it made me think of? And I I've thought about this for a long time. I would like to see us focus. Let's pretend we're gonna run Boorda battleship old Iowa class battleship, and I gotta shit my targets, I gotta really charters correctly. I don't wanna be shooting at a secondary or tertiary charter on his own a shoot out something that I think is the primary target. Let me explain. Yes. The way I see it here in California and the one party state of California, the coastal reefs and everybody else. Yes, we got they they are owned the politicians in this state are owned by Google Disney. Apple I mean, I look at the house of representatives speaker house, the speaker of the house of representatives Nancy Pelosi flying on corporate jets go into their retreat. These politicians are doing their bidding. And so when when I when I think about it. Always buying influence. It's not the the the drug cartels buying influence in the congress to influence our laws or to prevent our laws being enacted is members of congress. And we've got them here in California. We've got them in in your state of Texas. Arizona New Mexico, southern New Mexico. Governor today called out the cops on that on the bed. The guy who was trying to you know, indefens- the that's the the militia people on the board in defense. He is a felony. He's not allowed only got far. I don't know about you. But I support felons not have firearms. Yeah. With young with you there. Arms, and my brother, and and the first amendment is unequivocal in second amendment anniversary moment is unequivocal. But anyway, go ahead. Yeah. Look the way I don't have the best word for it. But I describe it as a global corporate state that is buying influence. I see that when we get on the radio, and I hear you me everybody else. They talk about what's happening is we're being divided and we're being divided because they're bringing any legal Elliot's. They're hiring the H one Bs. They call us racist. When we want to build a wall while they're building walls around their their palatial mansions like Nancy Pelosi, and what's happened. We're we're being sucked into kings. They are dividing us. So then what should we do? We got you know, like one get the black guy called earlier who you are you're ragging on them. And I kinda got it. But I know what we need to stick together. Guys. We need to really focus those guns like on the battleship, New Jersey, whatever's on what the real problem. Okay. Okay. Yeah. Okay. I got unity. I tried. I couldn't didn't you hear try to have unity with the guy. Commonality of being Christians. He couldn't do it. At that point either roll over and like like like like my little five pound five point one five point one pound while east roll my back because they please pet. My little belly here. Or is. So I mean, but no. But I I love what you said though, about all your your stuff about the Google and flying the jet and all that you had me at Hello. Okay. Let's go to Anthony in Alabama. You're live on Red Eye Radio Chris crock in for Eric and Gary. Hey, chris. Yeah. We're just a ball for the last caller, Alabama. Ten we we became a Republican majority since one hundred years since reconstruction and the first thing they did was coming in the ethics laws. Now, they want to change because a couple of guys got caught with their hand in the kitty talking, you know, so what Sarbanes Oxley what are you talking about? No, this is just state ethics laws. The down in Montgomery Montgomery, Alabama. I. Wait actually crossed my Cajun with my Obama. Good. Bridge is on fire. What? Oh, you know. I I was watching CBS news, and they were talking about sanctuary cities and Trump sending all the legal to those cities. And they ran a map, and you could see all the states and the cities then they ran a meal the next day, and they overlaid almost identically then they said, we have a new disease the fungus, and it's incurable. And then every time they run these maps these maps overlay each other with the eagles. Now, I know that Alexander customer Cortez says that if we give one of these people shot, it's abuse. So I don't think that actually cities are exact- exactly healthy American people. But I getting back to the measles. I was once against vaccination only because the measles vaccination had a preservative of mercury. And I was. Mirasol whatever. Yeah. Had mercury. There's there's there's a very attractive woman who got naked for a camera for playboy and got in there. She tells me that she tells me that tells me that that was causing it now. Now, one hundred pounds, overweight and ugly. Inside. Yeah. Long as you. I catch it. That's why the media is so good and telling people that Trump was Russia, all by the way, this cackling half naked girl was also on the view of for a little bit there. Well, you know, they're all buddies over there. Yeah. Let me tell you. If you one reason is because I actually read a book Kamali I actually read anyway, Dr Eustis Mullins wrote a book called death by injection. It's interesting dry read. But he talked about the the way congress had initiated vaccines in our history of vaccines. But once I took the mercury I I had no problem. All right. I appreciate your call got role. But fa- mongo.

"Oh, man. So what are some examples of how they worked to get against him? There there several in this book. So some of saxes enemies tried to undercut him by using their influence in the music world to make sure sax's instruments, for example, his bass clarinet were not accepted in orchestras. Right. So they they would have influence over somebody in in some big influential orchestra and say like the lead clarinetist and some Paris orchestra. Who would then say, you know, if you let instruments invented by Adolphe sax into this. Stra? I will walk out. I will not play with you anymore. Yeah. I was reading about some of these. And then the other text where people were like, yeah. I'm not planning at off sacks instrument. It's really it's very difficult. I think for us to really imagine this kind of world 'cause I know for all of my life. I kind of thought of instruments or fixed. They're all old well established instruments like the newest instrument is going to be like, the, you know, an electric guitar not. But the, but no new new instruments are being invented all the time. I mean, one thing that does come into become an issue here is that win a new instrument is invented it doesn't yet have like compositions written specifically with it in mind. Right. So if you're playing older compositions for an orchestra, they're probably they're not going to have a saxophone part written in them. Right. And then, of course, not every instrument has a lot of civility like, obviously, the saxophone has quite a bit of versatility. But on the other hand something like the thera Mun has limited usage. Yeah. In music, even when it is. It's played exceptionally. Well, yeah. But even if the these orchestras were considering. Incorporating say a bass clarinet of of Sachs's design or a saxophone or a sax horn. You know, any of the stuff he put together there would be ways that these rival instrument instrument makers could try to shut that down and prevent it from happening. Also in the French government was considering adopting some of sax's instruments for the reform of its military on samba lls because apparently at the time, the French government considered the the old sort of decrepit state of their their military marching bands to be an embarrassment. They needed new military music to show off which is kind of a funny thing to consider that they'd be super concerned about that. This would be an expression of your military prowess since is different time. Yeah. But then again, it is technology. And that's one thing that that that we should never look like like, we're talking about musical technology. Yeah. So th this was going on. There was a so the French government was considering adopting some of saxes instruments for their for their military use. And then opposition to sex really intensify the rival instrument makers, they formed this association that was basically just organized to attack sacks and shut him down. And they tried to sue him to prevent him from getting a patent on the saxophone one of the tactics. They tried is downright diabolical. So in I'm going to quote here from lily's chapter quote in another tactic several saxophone were purchased and sent to other countries saxes identification was removed and the instruments were then Rian grave to indicate foreign manufacturer rights of the ideas to say, oh, no sacks of is sack. Saxophone? I'm calling him. Saxophone? Sax did not invent the saxophone. There are already ones being made by other people over here beforehand. How mad so they're just straight up falsifying evidence for this idea that he's stole the saxophone designed from other countries. Right. But of course, fortunately, the the Lilla says that these forgeries were poorly. Executed and quickly revealed as a ruse, but it just did not stop here from the late eighteen forties on through the rest of his life. Seem sacks was just plagued with money troubles and constant lawsuits. His biography at this point really just reads, mostly as one miserable sounding court case or bankruptcy threat after another and he eventually died in eighteen ninety four in poverty. I believe. Yeah. I think so, but I think we should turn back to the eighteen forties to look at the invention of the saxophone in particular. But maybe I we'll take a break..

"french government" Discussed on Talking Politics

"And as they say the nomination race escalates salaries than is going to become an ever-greater constraint. So want to get on with to Miller in second. But lost mention Brexit. But we are at that point with this. Where we can speculate about possible resolutions, and there's a political logic perhaps behind some of them. But then when you feed that logic into where we are to clear with the personalities involved and also the pressures on all sides from various forms of public opinion. It's really hard to get to a resolution presented like with Brexit. We can't stay here forever. I mean, it has to be resolved. I seem has to be result. And I have read warranty people saying is really bring out the difference between American European politics. Shut down the French government. Not least because employs half the French relation and the entire countries out on the streets. And that there's a little puzzling. There's not a lot of public protest. I mean, there's not a lot of actual resistance around this yet would that grow. I mean, there are is eight hundred thousand people who are not being paid. Is partial shutdown is not. I mean, what would it do to get people on the streets. This would be solved in a day if the security people at the airport walked off their jobs, and no one in America could fly or the air traffic controllers who by the way, are not being paid said we're not gonna work anymore until we're being paid. This would end today. But what stands behind this is? I the law which says federal workers can't go on strike. And then Secondly Ronald Reagan nineteen eighty one when the air traffic controllers, go on strike firing all eleven thousand of them saying you will never come to work for the United States government again. And that is the moment of trauma from which modern labor has been born. And it's an extraordinary chievements by conservative Republican to legitimate public resistance and to confine and to limit what workers can do and that has not been talked about. But that you can be sure is on people's minds there in the folk memory of many American of memory of the union leaders. Who worry that something similar might happen? I actually think it wouldn't happen. It would be quite bold or be quite a lot of sympathy. And I think you have to get wealthy people in America hugely inconvenienced by this. And then it would end today. But you're right. There has not been that kind of public demonstration of resistance. Have there have been no demonstrations in the street, if you think of some of the actions taken in the nineteen thirties labor uprising people sitting down at their workplaces and say we will not be moved until this matter settled if TSA workers at the airports that this would be over today. And it's a Mark of the weakness of labor and part of what is missing in American politics that this doesn't seem to be on anybody's mind. I think Barbara ehrenreich called for strike put it didn't resonate with anyone. It's it's really striking known as the left faction of the new Democratic Congress, not cooling labor action. I mean think as the Causey Kuta position is not labor. So for a lot of things, but she. Sure is allegedly has not yet called for an action on the part of government workers to shut the entire government down. That would end this in a day, that's old left politics. And then she doesn't represent old left politics in that respect elements of some of the things that she talks about including in relation to tuck -sation and sometimes into what she talks about about debt and have to pay for things that do I think echo back to that old left wing politics, but not the focus of where agendas, so not since what's happening in the democrat party is interesting because it's taken the democrat party is to the left without going back to the place, the central place that lay behind in the Democratic Left to does this mean that the resolution will in the end have to be something that comes out of the legislature some back and forth between the two houses, and it will happen in the next week few weeks..
