China Warns US About 'Playing With Fire

"President Biden and general secretary G have concluded their Zoom call, it went a long time and there were read apps on the United States side and there are redoubts on the Chinese side. I think what's most important, The New York Times is reporting the Chinese readout shows general secretary G bullying, President Biden on Taiwan. Irene, China's leader Xi Jinping, this is The New York Times. Urged the United States not to test his country's resolve on the question of Taiwan and island democracy, Beijing claims as part of its country. We are patient and willing to strive for the prospect of peaceful reunification with the utmost sincerity, mister GE told President Biden, according to a readout of the meeting, released by Chinese state media. But China will have to take resolute measures if the Taiwan independence separatist forces provoke compel or even cross the red line. In vivid language that has come to define Beijing's steadfast rhetoric, mister G criticized politicians of the United States who he said sought to use the island status as leverage over Beijing. A trendy described as dangerous. Quote, it is playing with fire. And if you play with fire, you will get burned. The Chinese readout cited mister G

"To the bad day for the world. Joe Biden is going to negotiate with general secretary G the genital maniac running China now today by telephone. So we might not have a country by the end of the day. What do you think G says did the first person after he gets off the phone with President Biden? What do you think he turns to the guy who says to him in Chinese Mandarin? Yeah. That's what I was looking for. What do you think he says? I think he says that guy's an old, or do you think it's move up the plans for Taiwan? Is that what he says? No, I think he says if I were to work to him a little bit more, I could have gotten Canada too. I could have gotten Canada. It's like the Treaty of Paris in 1763 when Great Britain got Canada from the French. This could be a bad day. They're meeting by Zoom call.

Jen Psaki Flubs Question Over China Missile Development

"That. Now I want to go to a Jen Psaki whopper yesterday. And were you in the press room yesterday? Yes. Okay. Do you know what I'm going to get? I don't know. Okay. It is cut number 17. You comment on reports that China has saved a nuclear capable hypersonic missile over this summer to the surprise of your professional as accurate and raised concerns about Chinese people's capability. I know general secretary Austin, I should say, was asked this question this morning and addressed it. But I'm not going to comment on the specific report. I can say echo what he said, which is generally speaking, we've made clear our concerns about the military capabilities that the PRC continues to pursue. And we have been consistent in our approach with China. We welcome stiff competition, but we don't do not want that competition to veer into conflict. And that is certainly what we convey privately as well. We welcome stiff competition, caught the eye of every person who follows nuclear weapons and especially hypersonics, Michael scheer. Did that sound like a clunker off of your ear when you heard it? Yeah, it did. I mean, you know. Welcoming stiff competition is what you normally think of in terms of perhaps development of consumer technology or something that doesn't have national security implications. It's hard to imagine the administration truly welcoming stiff competition when it comes to development of nuclear weapons or advanced advanced deployment systems of nuclear warheads. I mean, so yes that seemed to me to be at odd way of phrasing that

Africa now free of wild poliovirus, but polio threat remains

"The World Health Organization declares Africa polio-free. By Jeffrey Kluger. Nobody will ever know the identity of the thousands of African children who were not killed or paralyzed by polio this year, they would have been hard to keep track of no matter what because in ordinary times they would've followed thousands last year and thousands the year before and on back in a generations long trail of suffering and death instead, no African children were claimed by polio. This year or last year or the year before it was in two thousand sixteen that the last case of wild circulating polio was reported in Nigeria the final country on the fifty four nation African continent where the disease was endemic and with the required multi year waiting period. Now, having passed with no more cases, the World Health Organization today officially declared the entirety of, Africa polio-free. A disease that as recently as the late nineteen eighties was endemic in one hundred, twenty, five countries claiming three hundred, fifty, thousand children per year has now been run to ground in just two remaining places, Pakistan and Afghanistan where there have been a collective one, hundred, two cases so far twenty twenty that's one hundred to too many. But there's no denying the scope of the whol announcement today's victory over the wild poliovirus in the. African region is a testament to what can happen when partners from a variety of sectors join forces to accomplish a major global health goal says John Hueco, general, secretary, and CEO of Rotary International. It is something the world can and should aspire to during these turbulent times. It was Rotary and International Nonprofit Service Organization that kicked off the polio endgame in Nineteen Eighty eight with the launch of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative the GPA. That program aimed to leverage the power of rotaries thirty, five, thousand clubs and one point twenty, two, million members in two hundred countries and territories worldwide to make polio only the second human disease after smallpox to be pushed over the brink of extinction.

"General secretary of the Chinese Communist Party. She Jingping. To a centralized power to a degree not seen since the dictatorship of outside. Go on. Now speaks openly of China, moving closer to the centre stage, building a socialism that is superior to capitalism and replacing the American dream. With the Chinese solution. China is no longer hiding its strength nor biding its time. From the perspective of its communist rulers. China's time has arrived. It's I believe we're fully on in a cold war just like we weren't the Soviet Union and the attorney general yesterday and the FBI Director Ray a couple of weeks ago, saying they've gotten All parts of society effort going on to become the lone superpower by whatever means necessary, so that means stealing killing Whatever they got to do, they're going to be in charge of the world. Absolutely. They're the world's greatest loan shark. They Get countries on the hook financially and then dominate them. They determined policy, they say, You know, we're going to cut you off. If you don't comply with this, that the other and they become essentially proxy dictators for these countries they have nothing to do with, including Ethiopia were that Dr Ted Rose is that his name is the head of the W H O Chinese. China has ah, chokehold on that country. Right now, That's why they're lackeys in charge of the W H O Attorney General Bar warned yesterday. The Chinese Communist Party has launched an economic blitzkrieg to topple the U. S. As the world's superpower. Calling for the free world to join together in the whole of society approach against it. How the United States response to this challenge will have historic implications and will determine what the United States and its liberal Democratic allies will continue to shape their own destiny, or whether the CCP and it's autocratic tributaries will control the future. It's a battle for the future of the world, just like it was with the Soviet Union, and that is not an exaggeration at all. In my opinion? No, I don't think so. And it's the most important story of the century without a doubt. Now that all stuff was all on China and for what they're doing. I did like the portion where he went after Hollywood real, But now you're scratching me where I itch. Attorney General William Barr blasted Hollywood for cow towering to the Chinese Communist Party, all while preaching the need for more social justice. Quoting now take Hollywood. Hollywood actors, producers and directors pride themselves on celebrating freedom and the human spirit. The bar noted that the annual Academy Awards at the annual Academy Awards Americans are offering lectured about how this country falls short of Hollywood's ideals of social justice. But Hollywood now regularly sensors its own movies to appease the Chinese Communist Party, the world's most powerful violator of human rights. Which is not even a question. Attorney general pointed to two films. He saw his egregious examples of catering to China. Why do you think he's taken on a Hollywood like this? Because I think he understands that unless the American people understand the threat And the seriousness of the situation. There won't be the will to fight it, and we need pop culture along for the ride. Now, some of the some of you if you're trump haters, you you'll say, Attorney Bar. Everything he does is to make Trump happy somehow. But Christopher Ray, the guy runs the FBI. He'd unlike Trump guarantee you and Ah ah! And he said the same thing. They both used the phrase hole of society. I think that's really interesting. I doubt that's a coincidence that the FBI director said China has ah, on all of society effort and that we need and then bar yesterday saying We need to have that right. So the clearly what you're saying is true. It's got to be every aspect. Well, one of the the key tenets of Chinese philosophy. Political philosophy is the harmonious society, the society where you are all working together for the goal, no matter who you are or what you do. And so, Yeah, if this is their great goal, everybody from the guy selling what bats To the farmers to the tech guys. T. Everybody needs to be in on this. So, yeah, That's probably why they said that. The attorney general pointed to two films. He saw his egregious examples of catering to China. World War Z. The 2013 films starring Brad Pitt about Azam Zombie pandemic. I didn't see that movie. I did. It's pretty good. It's pretty good. The book is great, Okay, Yeah, The movie just screwed it up like movies often does the movie really Hollywood reportedly removed the reference to the zombie causing virus, having originated in China Bar said the movie was made in the hope of landing a Chinese just distribution deal. Sure. Um, of course. The second example was Marvel's blockbuster doctor. Strange, based on a comic book created by Stanley, which changed the comic character Ancient one toe a Celtic woman from its original Tibetan monk. We challenged about this. A screenwriter explained that if you acknowledge that Tibet is a place and that he's Tibetan, you risk alienating your 1,000,000,000 people. Or, he continued. The Chinese government might say We're not going to show your movie because you decided to get political bar explained. Bar said These were but two examples of how Hollywood films were changed to conform to CCP propaganda. Listen, I'll put my loathing of Hollywood up against anybody's bring it. But I will tell you the idea of cow telling to the Chinese to make a profit is far from restricted to the entertainment industry. I mean, we all got high on Chinese money to a large extent. I mean, not us, really. But Although I suppose indirectly, I mean, if if ah Joe's giant tractor Multinational is selling lots of tractors to China. Maybe they did buy more advertising on the Armstrong and getting show. I don't know, but I think we just we started to realize in a lot of us have these experiences through our lives. That person who I knew is awful, but was getting me some benefit money, sex connection career, whatever. Uh, they're clearly awful. And I need to stop this well that n ba story from earlier in the year. The N B A R. Yeah. Yeah, when they when they at least briefly until they got so much backlash made it clear that nobody involved in the N B A is allowed to stand up for Hong Kong, right? Whoa! That's frightening. Even his freaking LeBron James is lecturing all of us on what awful people we are, Hey, went on to say Bar went on to say Chinese government censors don't need to say a word because Hollywood is doing their work for them. This is a massive propaganda coup for the Chinese Communist Party. So one of the ways that they have so much influence over the movies is China only allows a set number of quote unquote foreign films to be released in their country every year, Right..

State Department watchdog was investigating arms sales; Pompeo denies retaliation

"The State Department's Inspector General. I thought to be fired for investigating. The Secretary of State for assigning personal tasks to a department staffer also was investigating the approval of arms sale to Saudi Arabia without congressional approval officials from different congressional committees told NBC News. They believe Inspector General. Steve Clinic was fired in part for investigating Saudi arms sales that Congress had previously rejected house foreign affairs. Committee member Eliot Engel of New York. Confirm that investigation by late Monday. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding a more complete explanation for Lennox firing according to the hill. Senator Chuck Grassley Republican of Iowa sent a letter to the president on Monday. Senator Grassley reminded president trump. The law requires detailed explanations for dismissing departmental watchdog to ensure that inspectors. General are not removed for political reasons. President Trump said the claims the secretary of state potentially misuse of government resources are overblown and seeing to consider them acceptable. Even if they are true look he's a high quality person. Mike is very high quality Zuri brilliant guy and now I have you telling me about dog walk in washing dishes and you know what I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader. Then have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are you know. What are you telling me it's terrible. It's so stupid you know stupid. That sounds to the world unbelievable head to wash dishes because his wife wasn't there. The president also confirmed Monday. That secretary of State pompeo requested the dismissal of idealistic but did not directly address the issue of retaliation. President isn't there. At least an appearance of a conflict of interest of secretary. Pompeo is asking you to fire inspector. General's I don't I don't think so. I think maybe he thinks he's being treated unfairly again. He wanted to. He asked me if that would be possible. I said I'll do that. Your I think it should have been done a long time ago. Frankly and this is a man that has had some controversy. This inspector general but So again I don't know anything. I haven't even read much about him. I see that it's a little bit of a story not much of a story. 'cause everybody agrees that. I have the absolute right to fire. The Inspector General's secretary pay later dismissed the idea that his requests for the firing was in retaliation for links investigations into arms deals. And those errands saying quote. Because I simply don't know I'm not briefed on it. I usually see these investigations and final draft form. Twenty four hours forty eight hours before the is prepared to release them. So it's simply not possible for this to be an act of retaliation end of story says Secretary Pompeo the State Department's under-secretary for management told the Post that concern over linen had grown because of a quote pattern of unauthorized disclosures. Leaks to the news media about investigations. That were an early draft form. He added officials had no evidence. Linac was personally responsible for the leak so Casey Hud. There's a lot to unpack there. Let's go back to the arm sale though this was a year ago in. May when the president and secretary pompeo declared an emergency bypassing congress to sell about eight billion dollars worth of arms to Saudi Arabia and the UAE and it drew condemnation by the way from Republicans not just from Democrats but there was bipartisan. Condemnation of this move and now it appears that inspector general was looking into that declaration of emergency. Yes that's what. Nbc News learned late yesterday when Chairman Angle confirmed that this investigation was going on that they were angry that essentially he had the president and Pompeo tried to circumvent Congress on this arm sales question this was something that there are a lot of. Republicans as you point out who are very invested in what was going on in that particular situation. And who opposed this move by the administration but let's not forget to put the firing of this inspector general in to kind of the broader context in pattern that we're seeing going on here. This is not the first time something like this has happened and the administration has already ignored the rules that they are supposed to follow when something like this happens in the case of Michael Atkinson in the intelligence community by not explaining to Congress within thirty days why they did it and so I think there's a question here as to whether the administration will do it in the case of the State Department. This has been something that has drawn as you pointed out. Bipartisan condemnation chuck. Grassley though senator from Iowa has been particularly focused on this but the reality is Congress's relatively toothless in this regard they can make these demands asking for more information but the laws are not necessarily written in a position. That's strong enough to let them make a real difference here. And what we're left with is kind of a government that is increasingly. Not being held accountable. Now how that lines up with the president's campaign promise to drain the swamp I will let our viewers decide but they seem to be at odds. Donald Trump talked about how incredibly stupid thing sounded at his press conference. And I agree Casey. I want you to listen to this clip. One more time and let's focus on the part where Donald Trump says that he doesn't want Mike Palm. Oh doing dishes if his wife isn't there take a look. Look he's a high quality person. Mike is a very high quality his brilliant guy and now I have you tell me about dog walking washing dishes and you know what I'd rather have him on the phone with some world leader than have him wash dishes because maybe his wife isn't there or his kids are you know. What are you telling me it's terrible. It's so stupid stupid. That sounds to the world. Unbelievable quoting the president of the United States to you know Mr President how stupid that sounds to the world that in twenty twenty you say he needs State Department officials to washes dishes in case his wife. Isn't there

"Well in Virginia it seems the Democrats have secured a majority in the state legislature overturning Republican control for the first time in a decade joining us now from Washington is Jessica Taylor political reporter for NPR so Jessica what do we know for sure all say far we do know that the Virginia is it state houses will slip in this means unified democratic control both the governor's mansion and the General Assembly there for the first time in twenty five years so that means that they could pass stricter gun control measures especially in a state that is had several unfortunate mass shootings recently and could also I further expand Medicaid and healthcare in the state we can also see this is the final state needed to actually pass the equal rights amendment that would result in a new amendment to the constitution say these elections I see do you have a lot of national residents that I mean Virginia is a state that has been more of a swing state traditionally but is moving more in the blue column and that sort of spurred by the growth especially in the DC suburbs in northern Virginia and then there in Kentucky I mean this is one state that I think president trump really put a lot of his political capital and he went there the Republican governor there Matt Bevin had been incredibly unpopular including with many Republicans he picks fights with teachers in the state with others Republican state legislators but it can Kentucky is a very Republican state president trump what it by thirty points and that we have seen in the past you've been able to sort of transfer that political capital that you had two other Republicans but he was not able to do that there is and that sort of is a blow to him right he's facing this impeachment inquiry hearing here in Congress because he was in Kentucky campaigning the day before the election wasn't a and really pleading with people to vote Republican how worried when he be that he hasn't been able to turn that around that well I think that also like this was still a referendum on bad then and just how unpopular he was because other down ballot candidates like for Attorney General secretary of state where did still when in Kentucky but I think that you know he really did go all in there I think one thing that it shows is that we have seen traditionally voters here in the United States have been able to make a differentiation between state and federal candidates by in that sort of hyper partisan era that we live in here that was becoming harder for them to do but it does show that it can still maybe can it's matter local issues matter and can ultimately went out there if you have a really problematic candidates Jessica thank you that was Jessica Taylor who's a political reports that with

Clearing Up The Scene After The Mysterious Inspector Generals Briefing

"Late breaking item this one involves the president's TV loiter lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Mike clear the mystery of what was a very bizarre in chaotic scene after that so called Urgent State Department Inspector General Briefing Today C. N. N.'s Michael Warren joins us now with more so this is a complicated story. I'm not sure I fully understand and what happened today regarding this. Can you just lay out what we know happened. That's right Anderson so the State Department Inspector General made a very abrupt announcement that that they would be briefing lawmakers today they did that and in that briefing the I G provided a a large trench documents that included in that trench a number of allegations sort of outline of allegations against Joe Biden regarding Ukraine some allegations against the now former US ambassador to to Ukraine let lawmakers and staff on Capitol Hill wondering exactly what this had to do with anything now. CNN is reporting Rudy Giuliani spoke with me just a few minutes ago confirming that some of the information in in what the I g presented originated with him so okay so rudy Giuliani. Do we know how I mean Rudy Giuliani what handed it to somebody in the secretary of State's office or we know so so what what Giuliani told me is that he somehow routed this information again. This is at the end of March earlier this year. He says he routed that information to WHO Secretary of State Mike Pompeo it's kind of unclear exactly what that means but he did say that he received a call a couple of days later from POMPEII himself who said that he had gotten these documents and that he would refer it for investigation Giuliani telling me he was very frustrated that he never heard anything back from the State Department thereafter after so the three chairs Germans shift angle incomings released a statement tonight on the State Inspector General Briefing that happened today which is when and these documents were handed over by the Inspector General to them in Congress and I want to read you a paragraph from what they said. Inspector General stated that his office interviewed Dude Secretary Pompeo's counselor Thomas Alrich Brek Bowl who informed the inspector general secretary Pompeo told him the packet came over and Brek bowl presumed it was from the White House and quote. Does that match with your reporting or yeah. What does that wanted it to you? It's an open question again. Giuliani not being very forthright about exactly how he got these documents. He says to the State Department but look you have to remember Anderson that Rudy Giuliani is in the inner circle of the president. He's talking with the president a lot. we've seen a again from the whistle report that this seemed to annoy a lot of the national national security team around the president that Giuliani had such access so it isn't a determined exactly if that came from the White House but that suggestion from those chairman suggest it very well may have in the White House may have been the conduit for Rudy Giuliani to get those documents to the State Department and Michael just clear the documents were all handed over. I mean was there more of a briefing or was it just handing over these documents and are they all just things alleging stuff about the Biden's and Ukraine and the whole conspiracies that the that Giuliani has been pushing so this is interesting. I think some of the documents Giuliani says he was unfamiliar with and included in that transform the at the State Department our number of emails from State Department officials cels essentially taking those allegations that Giuliani has been propagating through conservative media and other media for the past several months and saying it's bad information so it really does seem to me that that the State Department is really trying to make an effort here. The I G is to say the State Department had this information and really urged each other to say hey. It's not true. Okay Michael appreciate it a lot to talk about tonight. Although it's still a

Hong Kong erupts over China extradition bill

Hong Kong erupts over China extradition bill

"We're looking at Hong Kong, which has been the scene of mass street purchase and indeed pitched battles with police triggered by a proposed new law, which would make it easier to extradite suspected criminals to mainland China. Joining me to discuss this here in the studios. James king, global China editor and on the line from Shenzhen just across the border from Hong Kong and mainland. China is our correspondent there, sue Lynn Wong James, first of all these scenes are pretty unprecedent, don't they, it's more than twenty years since the handover has anything like this happen for there hasn't been anything on this scale there was in two thousand fourteen a major movement in Hong Kong, the umbrella movement. But this is a clips that in scale there were about a million people on the streets of Hong Kong last couple of days and you know what happened today is also rather different from what happened in two thousand and fourteen with the police. Really getting heavy with the protesters using tear gas and rubber bullets. And there are some very disturbing videos that have appeared on Twitter and other forms of social media of police rushing at unarmed demonstrators, and beating them up with truncheons as they lay on the floor. This is also rather uncharacteristic of how demonstrations of this type are normally handled in Hong Kong, and different, again, from what we saw in the umbrella movement of two thousand fourteen so we are in slightly new territory with this one, and the other thing about this demonstration is that it's absolutely clear that Beijing wants this extradition law to be passed by the Hong Kong authorities, and it's equally clear that a very large majority of Hong Kong, people are implacably opposed to it. So there is an ongoing standoff right now and it is difficult to know how this will play out, but it does feel as if Beijing. Normally fairly in control has has lost control of events in a way that must be very worrying to them. This is the thing about Beijing, and Beijing track record when it comes to dealing with opposition. Of course, let's not make too much parallel with thirty years ago that TNN crackdown, the massacre in tenement square which you covered at the time, which I did cover at the time, but I would say that there could be a parallel in one regard, only, and that is that when Beijing is backed into a corner, it can decide to take uncompromising measures. I'm not from minute suggesting that there will be violence on the type of scale that we saw thirty years ago. But the records to strong arm tactics that we've seen with rubber bullets and tear gas and beating up demonstrators has I think, surprise people and this has happened fairly early on the hallmark of the umbrella movement of two thousand fourteen was the restraint with which the Hong Kong police dealt with the demonstrators. Those. Demonstrations went on for weeks were very prolonged indeed. And eventually kind of petered it out. So we are in different territory this time. And soon, you're just across the border in mainland China is this being reported that are people aware of what's going on. Everyone working two inch engine which is just across the border from Hong Kong has no idea, what currently happening didn't know that a million people to shape of Hong Kong on Sunday. There are few postal social media from pro-beijing newspapers, which characterize the protesters evil and being used by foreign forces, but on Chinese social media, almost everything has been censored, it's extraordinarily isn't it because the interaction between the two cities must be quite intense. I mean there's a lot of business going one way or another presumably the secret count kept for very long. Yes, so ironic in a way because Beijing is really pushing this new greater bay area, which is trying to increase connectivity between mainland China and Hong Kong Macau. And yet, obviously, when it comes to increase information sharing on sensitive topic or topics that Beijing insensitive like the. The protests that you something that is not happening at all between Hong Kong and Xinjian and other parts of mainland China. No. You both spent a great deal of time in Hong Kong being based there. You're currently base there. Now, James could you see this coming, suppose, is the question I'd like to ask both of you James, I, I left Hong Kong few days ago, and obviously, that was before these demonstrations have taken place. But in the run-up the extradition law was definitely a very strong topic of conversation in the business community, and among ordinary Hong Kong people. There was a great sense of pessimism. I would say among the business community and I was talking to some very senior. Longstanding members representing big western and Hong Kong companies there. There was a great sense of pessimism that the high degree of autonomy, which the mainland Chinese government has signed up to, to preserve in Hong Kong until twenty forty seven that was under the terms of the handover between the. U K. A and China back in one thousand nine hundred seven there is a great deal of pessimism these days, that high degree of autonomy is being eroded. And in particular, the rule of law, which is essential to the operation of Hong Kong is being eroded. People are even getting concerned about, you know, in the future. We'll contracts be enforceable in Hong Kong or will. They always be enforceable because effectively, what this extradition law can mean is that if China decides it doesn't, like somebody in Hong Kong, it can get that person extradited back to the mainland, and it's quite possible based on recent experience that that person could be a dissident or could be somebody with whom China has some kind of commercial dispute. So it's really hard to overestimate, the sense of pessimism. That's being felt in Hong Kong with regard to this extradition law and ceiling. That's I guess the view from the boardroom in a way if you like, but the umbrella movement in two thousand fourteen was very much a young person's moving. It was led by. People like Joshua Wong who had teenagers at the time. What's the mood among the young in Hong Kong? Some people said, after the umbrella movement that it had faded away again. But this would suggest known. So I think the pretend is possibly could really come as surprise, because there's widespread agreement that the umbrella movement ended in failure, the purchasers didn't get genuine universal suffrage what they were fighting for. And since then we've seen freedoms in Hong Kong slowly eroded by the government. And a lot of young people have been very despondent about what they see is the future direction of Hong Kong. And yet this week, we've seen a real shift in mood, and an outpouring of anger and frustration on the streets of Hong call. And the overwhelming feeling is that this might be the last chance to really take a stance and to really protest. Because if the expansion Bill does get passed which, like will get passed through parliament, a lot of people fear that it will become too risky for them to publicly protest during just to put to you against the Beijing response, and indeed, the Hong Kong government response as I understand. That they say this is all over done. This extradition thing was partly result of a murder suspect, not being able to be extradited in this would only apply to very serious crimes. It wouldn't necessarily affect freedom of speech anything in that. Well, I mean, obviously, we should pay attention to what the Hong Kong government is saying, but recent history shows that China extradites all kinds of people, there was the case of a famous mainland. Chinese businessmen who was sitting in the four seasons hotel with an all female bodyguard, that was literally snatched from the poolside and taken back to China, admittedly. He was a mainland citizen, but people have looked at that and drawing their own conclusions. We had the case of the booksellers booksellers were take an either from Hong Kong, or from other countries in the region and take him back to China in one case, the case of gleaming. Hi, this is a Swedish citizen, who has basically hardly been heard of since. And so people do. To appear to be extradited from Hong Kong on a non legal basis. And then they tend to sort of disappear within the security system in China, I won't call it the legal system in China because quite often these people are not actually charged. So I think there's a whole nexus of concerns that people feeling right now and ceiling again, one of the cliches about Hong Kong. Get sometimes hear from people, you know, top levels of business owners that it's a business city people don't really care about these political issues as long as prosperity is guaranteed. But again, that doesn't seem to be the case at the moment. That's a very important point in all of this. Unlike other protests for exactly the umbrella movement, where it was mostly after the who were fighting for democracy, or even previous protests before that. This is different because there's a real sense that the extradition law ethics everyone, it's not just about the activists so the young people it cuts across the board. It impacts the business community impacts the pro establishment community and the people who often often pathetic to Beijing, because they're the ones who have a business in China and could very much be targeted through the extra to law and James taking steps back, what's changed. You think because as I say, it's now twenty two years since the hand over the first ten years or so, you know, I'm a tasteful visits to Hong Kong, a lot of the liberals were actually pleasantly surprised and said Beijing not being too heavy handed. You still have things like the commemoration of Tiananmen Square every year. And. Hong Kong, which thinkable in the mainland, but they don't seem to be in a shift in attitude, in China in the sense that they're now suddenly pushing for things like this new extradition law. What do you think's changed? I think there's been a couple of changes one is the big climate of the Chinese government. You know, it does appear that the authorities in Beijing of become more hard line in recent years. We've seen several cases of dissidents that have been locked up or had their movement, restricted even more than in the past. We've seen an erosion of the very tenuous freedoms of the press in the mainland. It's rather difficult. These days to find any kind of dissenting voice, certainly not on politics and even on economics, these days within the mainland itself. I mean this is effectively a shift towards author terrorism as controlled by CD ping, the Chinese general secretary of the communist party. So that's the big climate. The small climate is Hong Kong itself, and I think. Quite a lot of the analysts, I've been speaking to in Hong Kong say that the mainland took fright at the umbrella movement. They saw that many people on the streets of Hong Kong. They sold the aspirations of the younger generation of Hong Kong has four direct suffrage, and they thought this is an exit stencil threat. You know, Beijing has a completely different type of governance system and they thought we need to nip this in the bud. We need to get tough with this, and quite a lot of analysts in Hong Kong believe that that is, what is playing out today with the increase strong arm tactics of the Hong Kong police. Okay. Well, it's obviously moving situation in both senses of the word something, I'm sure return to quite soon. But for now that's it until next week goodbye. But thank you very much indeed, to James king here in the studio and to sue in one insurance on.

And how we repeat over and over again, it was it catalyzed the entire Cold War mentality and the efforts of the United States and the free world, but I have to slightly disagree. I think that human beings are even more compelling than the context of the times. They are. I think if you are sitting in an audience and someone comes up like Barack Obama. There wasn't a huge amount of context there when he took the stage in two thousand four it was the force of this personality beyond intensity freshness of his perspective. The self effacing all of that. And it was like, wow. This is a different kind of politician. He created the context that drove his his assent within four years at the presidency.

The China Corruption Crackdown: Sincere Or Cynical?

"Peter Lawrenson is an economist at the university of San Francisco Peter says that it is important for communists to study not just economic policies, but sometimes also politics itself, so which candidate is up in the polls who's down, and what do politicians have to do to win elections, those kinds of questions, and that is especially if you want to understand why it is the politicians so often choose policies that are bad economics. So then the question is what can we look at about their incentives their motivations for getting reelected or staying in power to whatever political system, they are? And how does that in the juice them to do things which may not be in the interest of their citizens and might not sound economically rational, if you're just a public policy person, but do sound rational if you're looking about how you stand power and the political system that Peter has recently studied is the one in China where Xi Jinping rules the country as the general secretary of the pull up bureau standing committee, which has seven members back in two thousand twelve she launched. A massive corruption crackdown on political and military officials and on others throughout the country. And it led to indictments of thousands of thousands of people in the process. And so a natural question to ask is was this an actual tempt to go after actually corrupt officials or was it a political maneuver by Xi Jinping to further consolidate his own power within China will Peter studied that question in one of his recent papers. And after the break, you'll hear the actually kinda surprising answer from my conversation with Peter earlier this year at the American economics association annual meetings where he was presenting the findings of that paper. This message comes from NPR sponsor NCR NCR believes in small businesses. That's why they built NCR silver more than a point of sale NCR silver delivers big enterprise management tools, built for small business owners NCR, silver, search NCR, silver support also comes from mizzen and main creators of moisture wyking wrinkle resistant, dress shirts that require no ironing or dry cleaning heads and mizzen and main dot com and use code NPR at checkout to receive ten dollars off your dress shirt. Okay. Let's turn now to the paper you presented here at the as can you tell us a little bit about the topic. So this is a paper about the corruption crackdown that's happening in China. So under China's current top leader general secretary, Xi Jinping the who took tower in in two thousand twelve there's been this massive wave of arrests and detentions of officials under corruption charges. And so what this paper looks at is. Why is that happening? Okay. So two options here is this sincere crackdown that's actually targeting corrupt political officials getting rid of them and trying to clean up the system so that the Chinese bureaucracy works better. And so that it's more competent, or is it just an attempt by chairman, she to get rid of some of the connections to his political rivals and thereby consolidate his power in China that basically it. Yeah. That's exactly right. Okay. And what did you find? It was really both. We think the corruption goal was the primary one. But we definitely see evidence that Xi Jinping protected people who are connected to him. Okay. So it was both. This is all the above basically. Yes. That's right. How did you actually figure this out because I have to imagine that there are quite a few methodological challenges to studying corruption in China and how it's targeted right corruption is really difficult to study anywhere. Because of course, people try really hard to hide it. So what we did is we looked basically at who was who was getting promoted in different parts of China. And we found that people who were promoted despite not having good economic performance were more likely to get arrested for corruption later in most of China. You get promoted for having the right skill set. And through four performance in you in terms of economic development. In these provinces where a lot of wrestler occurring. People seem to be getting promoted, even though they didn't have the usual background and training, and they didn't have a record of economic performance. And so what we take from that is that these people may have actually been more corrupt. Maybe they bought their job things like that. And that so that supports the idea that really corruption and crackdown was going for the people who who were most

I think the second thing that people really value in these trackers is the accountability of declaring goal to people the third aspect, and I think strategy has been very good at doing this, but people like to compete, we have a thing called segments. And it takes small bits of road and turns them into your runner if you're cyclists the opportunity compete with others who are gender, maybe in your age group and see how did your performance compared to your friends? And then the fourth is just the documentation of something that had happened. So I think those all ladder up back to the beginning. Those all motivated people.

"general secretary" Discussed on KQED Radio

"By both for Russian person to become a comedian because Russians infamously don't have a sense of humor. We lose our sense of humor. When we lose our virginity. We never had them in the first place about products of western propaganda. But I'll try my best. And I spent my teen years in the US hands this accent? I got that accent there. Also, the sense of style of a vodka Trump. Don't get me wrong. I love the west, right? Especially the diversity in Russia. It's more of the same. Whereas here, I have all kinds of friends. Now, I have white friends. I have black friends, I have male, friends female friends. I have gay friends at straight friends. I have friends who don't like to identify as friends. All kinds of people. I've been trying to learn more about Russia because I was born in Russia. Very interesting time the thousand nine hundred ninety two right after they just the Soviet Union right after Gorbachev Mikhail. Gorbachev was the general secretary of the communist party in Russia. And if you're not laughing you are learning. So in nineteen eighty-five general secretary of the communist party, it was a man called Constantin Chernenko, and he died the protocol in the Soviet Union when something like this happened when someone died or there was an uprising or war instead of covering it in the news. But they would do is. They would play SWAN LAKE the ballet on TV and on radio twenty four seven which meant that Russian people in my parents in particular developed this Pavlovian response that whenever they heard SWAN LAKE they knew something was going down. Like if I ever hear SWAN LAKE as a ringtone or anything. I'm like, why are you? So. It's very inconvenient at parties. But yes, the silver lining goes does was that me how Gorbachev became general secretary and meal, Gorbachev is famous for a lot of things dismantled the Soviet Union. He tore down the Berlin Wall started a policy called glasnost, which let people say whatever they want it for the first time in one hundred years, but the most important thing that me Han. Gorbachev did was say the following quote what we need is star peace not Star Wars. I was born in the nineties, and it was interesting to watch my parents like see things for the very first time. Right. Like, they saw products for the first time ever like tequila or nappies? My mom was thirty four years old when she first saw both a tampon and a tea bag in the same day. She couldn't tell the two apart. I like to make fun of her because I consider myself so progressive, but when I moved to the US as a conservative Russian teenager. I distinctly remember walking into a pharmacy looking at a pack of her pleasure. Condoms and thinking to her pleasure. Condoms break on purpose because the only pleasure. A woman can know the joy of motherhood. And I was born in one thousand nine hundred and it was the year that Russia elected its first ever president. And that start a very long history of Russian people electing presidents all over the world..
