coronavirus and pierced city lubkin reports there is a lot that still unknown about the variant such as whether vaccines will hold up against it The omicron variant is worrying some scientists because it has around 30 mutations on its spike protein There's fear current vaccines may fail against omara since they prompt antibodies to recognize that spike But the former leader of operation warp speed mons laue says the vaccines do more than that They also spur on T cells which should be able to recognize and react to parts of the variant called epitopes even if the spike protein is quite different There's still a lot of potential T cell epitopes spread all over the sequence of the protein And therefore that's what makes me more cautiously optimistic But clearly we need to wait for the data

"Freedom Such hypocrisy Jess says Tom you sound like a psychopath And the virus isn't going anywhere And then Andrew says how could you possibly enforce this Well what is it that they're raising all these questions about Well here's today's piece My headline is locked down the unvaccinated so America can get back to normal Now let me lay out this argument for you The German parliament just mandated that everybody working in any kind of healthcare setting which includes elder care must be vaccinated to maintain their employment There are already laws to that effect in Greece and France and Italy And in multiple states in the United States Including here in Oregon They also will be deciding soon whether to extend a mandatory lockdown to all unvaccinated Germans across the entire nation This is what the Financial Times wrote yesterday Quote using what is known in Germany as the two G rule soon only the vaccinated and those who have recovered from COVID will be able to go into shops and cultural institutions Once the rules are implemented a household of vaccine holdouts will only be able to meet two people from another household Now meanwhile President Biden just put forward a fairly anodyne proposal that the occupational safety and health administration say that with large companies which they can easily regulate that if you have more than a hundred employees everybody has to be vaccinated That has been put on hold by four different Trump appointed judges Talking about liberty liberty Yeah So why would these partisan Republicans and judicial drag make such nakedly idiotic rulings Well all you need to do to get their reasoning is step into the wayback machine and go back to 2020 You know last year this is from the Boston Herald editorial by grace curly She says the Democrats are D.C. or cheering for the coronavirus keep in mind This is when Trump was president The Democrats in D.C. are cheering for the coronavirus Sad to say but it's the truth House speaker Nancy Pelosi and her ilk want the president to fail at all costs The coronavirus strongest allure as far as Democrats are concerned is the effect it's having on the stock market Right Donald Trump Jr. on Fox News He said that Democrats are hoping the coronavirus quote comes here and kills millions of people so they can end Donald Trump's streak of winning Right Freedom wire Ryan James Here's my theory in a nutshell The Democrat Democrats want to increase testing because keep in mind this is back in April of 2020 Because they know the more tests will increase the number of confirmed cases thus ensuring the economy doesn't reopen for an even longer stretch of time You might be asking why they would want this Well because it will hurt president Trump's reelection chances Rush Limbaugh a year and a half ago or almost two years ago said it looks like the coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump The media thinks this is the new Russia This is going to get Trump They're gleeful They're happy This is going to destroy the economy magically by November And then Eric Trump weighs in and says they're doing it for one reason They want to hurt Trump After November 3rd coronavirus will magically all of a sudden go away and disappear and everybody will be able to reopen You get the idea right Throughout the Trump presidency all these right-wing commentators You could literally find thousands of these kinds of commentary on the Internet All these right-wing commentators were saying oh the Democrats are talking about the virus because they want Trump to fail in November of 2020 Well the virus did take down Trump because it took down the economy And when economies go down people vote for the other party It's been going that way since the election of 1800 And now that the Democrats are in power Republicans are trying to reverse that but look at what they're doing I mean you've got this army of hustlers and grifters who are out there selling stuff like Ivermectin You've got social media trolls from other countries telling us hey look out That vaccine is dangerous stuff And but the Supreme Court ruled on this in 1905 the case was Jacobson V Massachusetts And the court goes through this thing where the defendant says that his liberty is invaded When the state subjects him to fight or imprisonment for neglecting or refusing to submit to vaccination and they go through all of his arguments It's an assault upon its person that it's unreasonable that it's arbitrary that it's oppressive that it's hostile to the inherent right of every Freeman to care for his own body and health The court summarizes the arguments of mister Jacobson And then the U.S. Supreme Court says and I quote but the liberty secured by the constitution of the United States to every person within its jurisdiction does not import an absolute right in each person to be at all times in all circumstances wholly free from restraint There are manifold restraints to which every person is necessarily subject for the common good on any other basis organized society could not exist with safety to its members And then they go on to say the upon the principle of self defense of Paramount necessity a community has the right to protect itself against an epidemic of disease which threatens the safety of its members And in 1905 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Massachusetts could mandate vaccinations In this case it was for smallpox But basically what they said was that the mass holes right to spread a disease is not more important in America than the right of the rest of us to be free of that disease which is why when our governor here Kate Brown showed some steel in her spine The Republicans were like oh my God she's a tyrant because we got 40,000 state employees in this state And she said you all 40,000 of you have to be vaccinated or you're going to be fired And the Republicans and the.

"Last time i was there still true. Yeah there's quite a bit connected to the wall and that also now quite a bit connected to the environment and the climate crisis so that's some of the newer street art. That's been going up. And it has been under a somewhat threat of being. Torn down for redevelopment right. Yes that happens every couple of years. I think actually that section along the river is a bit controversial because the city and to be honest berlin even though it has so many visitors. And it's the capital germany. It's basically bankrupt in terms of trying to earn. Money was trying to sell basically rights for housing business development there and actually the last time that happened or quite a lot of demonstrations and petitions and they managed to keep the housing I forget whether it was housing business development company from removing the east side gallery and taking it somewhere else so it still remains there but that's a contested area because it's prime real estate but it's protected right now because of these i gallery world. Should we see. I would also say to visit the brandenburg gate which is kennedy iconic actually used to be one of the original gates to the city berlin when it was a walled city and next door. To that is the reichstag which is kind of the german parliament. One thing with that is now you have to. It's free to go up there. You can go up to the dome and they have a nice audio tour that you can pick up but you have to reserve that in advance. You have to go to the website and pick a time in a place. And the reason why i say that is a few years ago you could just walk up there with your passport and you could go up but now they actually have specific times reserved in advance. Now another way to get around that if you really wanna go up there because it does provide really nice views of the city is. There's also a cafe on the top of the parliament. Yes so also to make reservation there for breakfast or coffee or lunch in that way you get around the lines and can go up to the top well. Then besides the spring views of the city to the reichstag has the staircase as it winds. Its way up to the top of the reich. Shaq is really beautiful. So it's a beautifully designed building and then on top of that. This sort of audio guide interpretation is really excellent and well done so. That's one of those things when people will tell people about it and then they'll say oh. I wasn't able to get a reservation. It's really unfortunate. So that's one thing to look into. An advance of visit is getting a reservation. There will and if people are picturing the old pictures of what the building looked like. It's changed quite a lot. And there's one significant that we haven't mentioned in terms of the reichstag new dome. It's glass and and what can you see. Let's say it's also all mirrors on the inside and bigoted just run through my head thinking so you can actually look down on the german parliament. And the the architects idea was that coming out of world war two and coming out of the reunification that this basically was an idea that the parliament is transparent. And so they did this in a very intentional statement of transparency fascinating beautiful architecture in this old restored building..

A reminder wildcard is a company that deals in other dealt in the handling off credit card transactions and the story behind it was that they had billions of euros inside their books for which there was just no actual essence and the thing. Was that a lot of german. Politicians were very keen on getting on board Saying that this is a hoping that this would be one of the biggest success stories in german thought of worth then.

"Agree on. I don't want red and black. I don't want that at all but it's In the moment it seems to be the only possibility but i. i don't want it. And i think a lot of social democrats don't want that not the second time. There is one other thing that many here can agree on that sunday night. Where populism lost if the loudest cheer in this hall went up when the spd's was shown to be in the lead perhaps these second loudest cheer went up for the loss in popularity of the right wing alternative for germany. The far right populist party that stormed into parliament for the first time for years ago fell back again on sunday just about scraping ten percent of the vote but it was not just the far right that lost the far left fared even worse on the night as the left party support collapsed to just five percent dangerously close to tumbling out of the german. Putin's tack altogether so while german voters may have split their vote across four parties. And we don't really know who is going to govern this country over the next four years. The one thing that is clear from sunday's election is that germans voted for the political center. And not the extremes. I'm gonna macklin may not have been standing in this election. But her brand of commonsense pragmatism in politics that seems to be alive and well for monocle twenty four. I'm chris. tarmac and christians live on the line from berlin. Good morning chris. Good morning emma. Having had a long night as suspect after huge night but very unsettling night for german politics. It seems yes. I think that's a fair way to put it. It's been unsettling at as i described that piece. I mean it was a night of for the social democrats but the question now really is what comes next and You know some of the things. I didn't talk about in that piece. They always they have this fun tradition. I shouldn't say fun. This rather strange in a way tradition in german politics where they bring all of the leaders together for a tv debate on the night Of this and so that happened last night. we're all. I'm in las shut. Olive shorts degrees the free democrats all got together to discuss the results and it was interesting to watch already there. Everybody kind of jockeying for position on this next step if you will particularly also i'm in luscious of the christian. Democrats was quite open and almost campaigning. For the greens and the free democrats to join him instead of joining all our shores in a future government. So that's kind of where all of this uncertainty lies and it's really up to the greens and the free democrats in some ways. They're more in the driver's seat than than offshore is to say. You know we want to work with you. Or we don't and delighted to say sitting next to miss quentin peel associate fellow the europe pregnant which has a man who follows german politics incredibly closely morning. Get heavy back. What's your reaction to last night's results. No great surprise but hugely unsettling for german politics. I it is absolutely fascinating because They're not going to be weeks of negotiations. And chris just said the people in the driving seat are actually the greens and the liberals and if they connection agree on something. Then clarity will emerge. I still think probably. On balance the night belongs to olaf scholz and the likelihood therefore is what they call a traffic light coalition red green and yellow. But having said that explain the traffic light system there's jamaican system as well coming in. Just the no one gets left behind. This explains what traffic lights. Traffic read is is as pd. Green is the grades and yellow liberal. So that's a traffic light. Coalition whereas jamaica coalition is the center right led coalition of black. Which is it's jamaican flag. Black green and yellow black hist christian democrats green is the greens. Yellow the liberals. So it's between those two but the one there is a slight Uncertainty because any future government has to have a majority in both houses of the german parliament and even if it looks likely that one particular coalition will emerge in the stock the lower house in the bundesrat. The upper house a jamaica coalition would have a much easier time so the balance is actually quite difficult to get. And maybe that's why you'd suddenly get the possibility of a grand coalition reemerging which nobody actually wants. We are now in a situation not Chrissy if you just look at the political climate in germany this hearing that one voter. Who's at the spd's victory party. Who said that they voted for greens It seems totally counter intuitive. This was an election which has absolutely split. Germany's voting allegiances traditional supporters who've gone to different parties. What's led to this well. I think that's true to some degree. I think the one the one thing. I would add though that as well as yes. There's been a split in the votes but it is important as i said at the end there. What's what's also interesting. Is that these. These splints came but with parties that are relatively moderate in their stance latte twenty seventeen. We also had quite a split of the vote but it went more to the fringes. You had a strong strong showing for the alternative for germany. You also had a strong showing for de link the left party this time that that sort of vote that outlet if you will went to the to the greens particularly and also saw the social democrats in the ascendance and then the free democrats as well. So i mean where where that comes from it. It's hard to say. I mean in a way. It actually didn't come off as much as we might have expected already even a month ago. It looks more like the greens would be the party in the sentence over the social democrats that they would be the new strong left-wing force so in some ways actually that that sort of looked for for on alternative. Didn't come off quite as strong. We might have expected and yet we're still as As clinton was saying there were still in this position where it's actually the greens and the free democrats who who are in the driver's seat here and have to decide who they who they want to work with going forward do you clinton bring the greens and the free democrats together when both parties have said that they are politically at opposite ends of the scale. They do not want to work together. opening the probably haven't said that there is a suggestion that behind closed doors. There is no way the greens who left leaning And in a very environmentally conscious obviously in the free democrats. Who are the business party. They are liberal. How'd you bring those two together. Well that's why it's gonna take till christmas. I mean the truth is yes absolutely. The free democrats won't lower taxes. They want to be nice to business and they really wanted to go. Slow on on a measures to tackle climate change whereas obviously that his top priority for the greens and the greens and the social democrats are both perfectly happy to see business and the wealthy attacks more so a very difficult bridge to cross really I think nonetheless..

"They had to buy Russia that it was all arranged and that was that was really very shocking to everyone and when that came out in the film when sailing came in germany that were questions asking the asking that windisch dog the german parliament It was a huge roar and in fact the whole film. 'cause a lot of a lot of discussion and dispute an argument and you know we were attacked by the germans who were attacked by the israelis palestinian instant and in some ways. I oh that's good. Readers equal opportunity trail kind of irritation from everyone. But at the same time. I think you know for young Maker young filmmakers myself juicer yet it we made the so. We were kind of a rabbit. Scott and headlight. It was a very tense experience. Actually being the center of the controversy that and the fact that the olympics continued now if now looking back in the twenty twenty one imagining that a small country or countries athletes were taken hostage and the olympic committee would continue with an event. Is it a surprising today as it was. When you made this film yes. I think so. I mean i think that that is. I think you could see a parallel with what's going on today. The you know this huge worldwide on denic. It's not under control and yet the olympics. Going to go ahead without an audience with people having decorum teams all of restrictions but the olympic committee is so determined to go ahead and the country is determined to go because they spent so many billions and billions of dollars. And that's the same thing happened in nineteen seventy two. It's very hard to stop that train. Because as much vested interest and yet the human cost is not taken into can. And i think there's no doubt in nineteen into the olympics should have been stopped. Eleven people just being eleven athens just been killed or harris had been killed. It was the most horrendous situation things every.
"german parliament" Discussed on MSNBC Rachel Maddow (audio)
"Weeks of donald trump's presidency the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark. Milley was so worried that trump might attempt some kind of coup to stay in power that millie was making plans with other military leaders about how they would block an order from the president if he attempted to use the military to remain in office. Those revelations are contained in a new book due out next week from washington post reporters carol lennick and phil rucker. Here's one excerpt. Msnbc is obtained ahead of the book's publication next week quote a student of history milly saw trump as the classic authoritarian leader with nothing to lose. He described a wage that he kept. Having stomach churning feeling that some of the worrisome early stages of twentieth century fascism in germany. Replaying in twenty-first-century america he saw parallels between st trump's rhetoric of election fraud and adolf hitler's insistence to his followers at nuremburg rallies that he was both a whip a victim and their savior. This is a reichstag moment. Milley told aides the gospel of the fuhrer. Now there's an inherent shock and hearing the country's top military leader comparing the us president to hitler but it's worth drilling down on this a little because according to the new reporting mark milley wasn't just casually throwing around nazi references as epithets disparage president trump. He was using historical context. This wasn't a case of trump bad. So i'll call him. Nazi names milly saw a very specific historical analogy in what donald trump was doing in february of nineteen thirty three. The german parliament building. The reichstag in berlin went up in flames german. Chancellor adolf hitler who up until that point had attained power by democratic means blamed the communists and said it was the beginning of a terror campaign by the left on that premise. His government proceeded to suspend constitutional rights giving hitler. The power to rule by fiat and germany literally turned from a democratic to an authoritarian state. In the weeks after the november election milly feared the donald trump was creating his own version of the reichstag fire and emergency the justifies the suspension of the rules that demand and authoritarian response. The election was rigged and stolen by shadowy leftwing forces. Therefore we must stop the counting of the votes. We must suspend democracy milly feared the trump would attempt to use the military to achieve this suspension of democracy instead. It took the form of an insurrection that sought to stop the certification of an election and insurrection that succeeded for a few hours but ultimately failed and given that it failed given that trump did leave office and democracy did prevail. It's tempting to leave this all behind us to read carolina and phil rutgers book as a kind of stoorikhel artifact reporting on a period of our history that is thankfully behind us except it is not over. Donald trump has never had more of an iron grip over the republican party. Then he does right now that framing so alarm mark milley that the election was stolen. The results should be thrown out and trump should be reinstalled as president that it's basically the republican platform for the twenty twenty elections right now up and coming. Gop candidates have to swear fealty to the notion that trump is the real president just yesterday. the house. republican leader made a pilgrimage to trump's new jersey golf club to kiss his ring when republican voters are asked who they want to be the two thousand twenty four. gop presidential nominee trump wins by a mile and republicans are enacting voting restrictions and stripping power from nonpartisan election officials. So they can attempt to make sure they win elections one way or another joining me now is one of the most perceptive thinkers on this subject. Tim snyder professor of history at yale university. His books include on tyranny listens from the twentieth century. Twenty twenty lessons from the twentieth century. Tim snyder professor snyder. Good to see you tonight. I want to one of the reasons. I wanna talk to. You is because of an essay that you wrote barely a month into the trump administration back in two thousand seventeen titled the reichstag warning in which you write. The reichstag fire shows how quickly a modern republican be transformed into an authoritarian regime. The american founding fathers knew that the democracy they were creating was vulnerable to an aspiring tyrant who might seize upon some dramatic event as grounds for the suspension of our rights as james madison nicely. Put it tyranny arises quote on some favorable emergency so i wanna get your response. Professor snyder to this reporting about what general milley was fearing in the in the last days of the trump administration my personal responses that ungrateful the general milley reits history. And i think the the broad signifcance consult us is that our our leaders in our aspiring leaders should be reading history there to really important references in in what you decided. I is federal's paper. Forty eight in which madison who himself thought. Very historically recognized how fragile republics are and recognized that people would overturn them. We'll use a real. Or the case of mr trump this time an artificial emergency and the second important reference is the reichstag fire and again. I think general milley was right to be thinking in those directions as idea that mr trump was a victim and therefore because he was a victim. Everything was permitted. That is familiar from fascism and using something to do with parliament in this case or congress as the pretext is also familiar the idea that he lost the election. Something dramatic had to happen to parliament. That's terribly familiar. So i'm grateful that general as is referring to history. I think that's very word one of the things. You told dana millbank this week. The journalist dana millbank is that a failed. Coup is practice for a successful coup. Your view is not that this insurrection failed. We're glad that failed and now we know better. You're worried that to the people who were inspired by to do what they did. On january six they remain inspired. What we're now working within the framework of a big lie. One of the things. I was trying to explain. Less fall is that wants. Mr trump makes this big claim that he actually won the election. We're gonna have a polarized society or in one political party which makes it their single issue which is basically what's happened so long zorin framework of a big lie. We expect one of the political parties to try to rig the system because after all if you tell people that the other side cheated you're basically promising your people that you're gonna cheat as well in the scenario is now playing out with the voter suppression with the culture wars. We get ourselves to a scenario. Where in two thousand twenty four. The republican candidate could lose a lot..

It's not necessarily to supply a uk address for service for it for the european patent the european to take effect nor is it necessary for renewal however you will need supply. Uk justice service if you want to do anything else in relation to the patent so if you want to make an amendment gretchen stopped proceedings etc. Then you will need. The address for service said there is guidance available. Any questions or concerns to i. Paul is to look at the garden website but then if anything other question that police do do ost he hasn't i. I guess the safest bet would be to heaven address for service in the uk or give you an address for service. Uk in just in case for example would be attacked by revocation proceedings. So so someone would be notified right. Okay thank you very much. It is very hopefully the answer. One more question regarding patents and the german parliament Finally voted again on the topic of the unified patent court and germany is now expected to ratify agreements. Who won the. Upc agreement Do you think it would be possible for the uk to stay in the ups's system that would obviously be very good advantage for the applicants of european patents. And if yes how do you think that would be possibly the worst in terms the upn upc and again. That's been a big year for that this this year But you did has made the statement earlier this year saying that he's not seeking to have involvement in the up or upc system Going forward your participation. The court doesn't mean the various aspects of avilla law apply and would need to be bound by the way you and that's not consistent with the names of becoming independent self governing nations so We're not. We are not looking to take part in the up upc And in terms of how that will develop going forward that will be for the remaining members off of the upc to decide how that goes forward so okay. That's the that's quite clear on how that's working for for the foreseeable future. And i would guess that that will also cover the seat of the upc. One of the three seats in london would stay there or would that be given up. I mean regarding the future location of that seat. I mean that is a matter for remaining states to decide. Obviously we've been involved in in setting up the the in london but given the uk will no longer be part of of the up up system. The other member states needs to decide what's going to happen with with that seat of the court going forward. It's not something. I would love to travel to the uk to london for the proceedings. So i would love to seep to to stay in london. But i don't know as a good reason to come to london so we're leaving new. You still have strong ties with end is really important relationships for so yup we look forward to seeing you the uk. That won't change. Thank you so much so. I have another various pacific question that i was asked before this interview. So let us assume the following next year one of our clients to oppose a trademark in the uk based on an earlier european trademark which has spawned trademark by first of january and then the question would be where the use of the earlier trademark for example in germany. The earlier you might be sufficient for proof of us In these opposition proceedings or is it necessary for the newly created opposing. Uk trademark to have been used in uk by them. Now you're get into the real technical details for me. So i'm grateful. I've got a fantastic team of people that You know this detail because If it was left to me that would be much harder I think it's a really important question. and you setting considering any sort of a before the first of january though things will be taken to account so you know the the five year periods for Looking at sort of use and things that any period before the first of january twenty one in europe would be taken into account so your example in germany. If you appeared at that time it's been used in germany. That could be used as part of proof of of use of trademark. After the first of january things will be different so as long as that. Five year period has an ultimate before the first of january. Then things will be taken into account going with. That's something that people need to think around and coming to effect but it is very generous. Thank you so much for that information very helpful in the very generous solution grateful for that so to make it make it make the system work for everybody and i think that's that's important and ultimately saying look. The system is is fundamental to the way all our economies work and making sure that that carries on is is really kate. The uk has a great system will continue to have a great system. I'm just some of the relationships change and we want to make that transition as smooth as possible for everybody. I'm sure there will be certain things. That unforeseen circumstances that may crop up but said the aim is to to make things work for customers to ensure that business and trademarks.

You are anti American Racists and therefor leadership position in the Democrat Party. But the violence last night two police officers shot in Louisville. One police officer in in Seattle, Fortunately was where he was bicycle police officers. So he was wearing a bicycle helmet. But Antifa Criminal committed. It was lethal force. It was definitely lethal, Deadly force used against the police officer running up behind a place officer blindsiding him with an aluminum baseball bat and hitting, I'd say a triple with his head. Unfortunately, the place officer was able to escape the violent mob there, but he could have been killed, quite clearly broken that next match Go. Could've been ah lot worse than it was, but this is today's Democrat Party. It's very well organized across the country. Lot of clear signs of organization in Louisville. You've all seen the video of the U Haul truck. That's where back truck Pulling up and pull up the back of the thing. You all check, pull up the back square back and pulling out all their they're prepared in advance banners and signs, which are used as weapons to the polls and them are used as weapons and this is all quite organized and orchestrated and who rented the truck. Everybody's asking who's paying toward on his credit card, in whose name Is there a national organization? Why were all the banners and signs and tifa a lot of people? These three arrow things, which comes from eyes, derivative of the German Socialists of German Socialist who you know Hitler was a German socialist. He was the head of the National, the National German Socialist Workers Party, and that's you know, just another Socialist Workers party in Europe in the 20th Century and the Antifa Democrats here in the United States. They've modelled themselves on impact. I was I made a note to myself because you know, lunch bucket Jo and the Democrats. They are blaming President Trump for the violence across the country. Which is kind of an updated burning of the Reichstag. You know, the story goes that Hitler's boys the National Socialists of the Hitler era, they allegedly set fire to the German Parliament. The right stock in 1933. And then they blamed the Communists because that was one of their opposition parties and the national Socialist German Workers Party was an opposition party to the Communists, and they were vying for power. And it is alleged at least that the National Socialists of Adolf Hitler set fire to the right shagging and blamed the Communists in orderto create kind of an emergency order. And about that they really didn't then blamed blamed. The other guys blame their political enemies. And that's what the Democrats and Joe Biden are doing. Right now. It's the old Hitler playbook. You know how they are old habits die hard with socialists around the world. And so they burn our cities and then blame the guy and the people that are doing anything, you know, Look, the Communists in Germany were guilty of all kinds of things and still are because they're communists. Let's let's be honest, Biggest murder is in the history of the world. But this is the updated version of the old Burn the Reichstag routine, where you set it on fire and blame your political opponents. And that's what Joe Biden is doing. Just like Hitler. I'd like to throw in there just like Hitler thing they loved. I played audio yesterday where they were calling President Trump Hitler for what was that I don't remember what it was for because it's so commonplace that they just go everybody Hitler all the time. And you're a fascist on your was morning, Joe. It's because President Trump questioned the loyalty of Ilhan Omar to the Constitution of United States, which is pretty funny, actually, because she's utterly disloyal to and disrespectful of our founding documents. Our Constitution, the bill of rights, the rule of law. And the United States of America. Our founding our history, our culture, our customs, our language on She's hostile to all of it. And so President Trump there to question that which made him a racist, A fascist Aunt Hitler. That was that We had a montage yesterday from MSNBC. When in reality, nothing could be further from the truth. But we'll get into all kinds of stuff related to that D. C. And again the organization. You saw the U Haul truck in Louisville. With all the antifreeze signs coming out. They got their own camera crews everywhere, and it's all organized and they're they're yelling Shields over here. I got shields like there's Helen hot dogs at the Ballpark. I got. Why did they bring shields to a peaceful protest? Why? Why would anyone need because the pigs man Because the pigs are often the brothers and the sisters because they're racist, which is another epic lie just like they're burning of the Reichstag. Utterly untrue. In fact, I brought a list today of how many of 12 Anglo Caucasians that have been killed by the police this year while unarmed list of 12 while I did a little research yesterday so far this year Nine people unarmed who are African American have been killed by the police. Now the thing is sometimes you're like choking the place officer with your hands and your thumbs and things like that. Sometimes you're it varies a lot of variation. Nine African Americans 12 Anglo Caucasians killed so far by the police while unarmed while unarmed. Much greater number than that killed while shooting at driving at in committing crimes and stuff like that, because we're a nation of 330 million people, and it's just a statistical and there is that, and then I looked up something else because I think this way I looked up how many people were killed in lightning strikes. How many people have been killed in lightning strikes? You know, by a bolt of lightning.

"Here check point Charlie this they can. simply charging now through the small gate to the fed. nineteen eighty nine in the fall of the Berlin Wall a seminal moment in the history of not just Germany but your up and beyond during the Cold War communist East Germany old the GDR had at its heart a feared and hated Stasi secret police force which built a repressive apparatus of surveillance and intimidation using offices and informants bugging technology and secret prisons they created millions of files on ordinary citizens recording what they had learned if people were too critical of the communist regime they could be jailed now the German parliament has voted to close down the authority which holds the Stasi files from twenty twenty one they will be kept in the state run national archive instead it's a move that some say will push the lead on history eighteen years doctor who versus Kanab ran a museum in Berlin which used to be a Stasi prison. I think this is a big mistake because of the biggest institution not only in Germany but on the whole of itself dealing with the pasta for dictatorship would be dissolved and also an example for other countries how to deal with the past will be eliminated with that what why is it so important that there is a separate place where these files in this historical archive is capped because the argument from the parliament is that this archive will be better preserved and still be accessible the stars you the secret police tried to destroy all of that commands and then. it is and who went into the offices and occupied the offices and they really struggled for conserving these documents and they were successful at the end and then it was decided to constitute a special institution it was also necessary because of coffees documents the very sensitive and these five opened two years of the end of the stars he and this is something really exceptional and write history. there are people who like you are critical of this decision and talk about a need to being put on history for those who don't remember remind us what the style the deed they really tried to get very detailed picture of ball down the minister of state security always said we must know who is who that is all main question who is who and that means not only leave knowing when somebody's acting already but knowing before what he's thinking and therefore they developed a very sophisticated system off getting and foremost of educating and foremost and also of course of technical survey ends one terrible as soon use in East Germany Karen tries if you would for Ross what what the atmosphere was like which was created by the way in which the stars the operated via a blank fear of this state of policemen of the neighbor or even all of the members of your family because they have a lot of people who have been supplied by family members and you couldn't trust anybody when I saw my own flies I also stopped to trust other people it was a very strange experience I said I can only trust one person and that serve me and of course my wife was very angry with me and the dictatorship which is constituted so much on the FIA told discipline the society. it says something which is also difficult to explain and to and to understand and to feel for noticeable GT always think call full of strange because for example when we don't think about this feeling of fear I'm hopeful since things were people picked up four and thrown into jail full. yeah I remember for example and assuring hats she only caught up in the best German embassy in Budapest to get some information how it's possible to leave East Germany and there was a reason to arrest and she was in these awful prison and she's only one example of around two hundred thousand two hundred fifty thousand political prisoners and G. out times why do you think it's important for people to continually be reminded all of this particular system. this ideology die rechte went on to Tara and dictatorship because human beings are not equipped and if you want to make to make but you must use repression and physical force at school it's nearly No Way talked the information level is very very poor it's nearly nothing. and to so it's difficult to run the office to review don't know the history.

Democrats say all don't scape goat immigrants stop don't you know it's not all women is not only illegal immigrants you're being potentially racist then if there's a G. heart attack you know someone yelling Allahu Akbar wall slaughtering non Muslims right here in America again the leftist don't scapegoat does cake of mobile homes don't scape goat implements no no no but but when a bad guy does something with a gun the liberals are all about scapegoating the second amendment constitutional rights every single American other more than a hundred million Americans who live in a house with a gun the tens of millions who shoot for sport or hunting or keep guns for self defense or have guns in the house as the nuclear option against a tyrannical government that our founders intended it to be which is what they wrote it in the bill of rights it's find a scapegoat them it's trying to to talk about them having guns fetishes to talk about the abuse their obscura fold FOB I've heard the word to ran a phobia and that's not a dinosaur actually that is hilarious are you are you that okay. are you joke and the fear of. that's called an American in an article by Eric pose nor and Adrian Vermeule of Harvard with eight they they try to explain that all American culture is corrupted by this unhealthy fear all my god that's like an unhealthy fear of being stabbed to death yeah okay John let my guy standing in front of you I know life I know what you say in the article but before we get into that and it's fantastic folks you can find it at my Twitter feed or Facebook page or on stream dot org right Johns murex Twitter feed but but I I just want to say this I had a conversation with my niece over the over the holiday on this issue and was a very clarifying conversation for me because what it made me realize in this is kind of a problem we have in America right now we have in you just said it brilliantly we have competing narratives we we have things that get conservatives all upset and things that conservatives ignore only if things get liberals all upset and the things that liberals nor ignore because if it doesn't fit your narrative and so what we need to do and I want to obviously get into the article you wrote but I I just realize certain things come up in these conversations over and over and over again and these are not bad things like it's logical to think this if you have the wrong facts right for example people always say that we need to do something. and what they really mean is the government needs to do something and I think John part of what you're getting at in this article is that sometimes the government ought not to do something sometimes another was this clamoring for the government to do something with gun laws whenever anybody tells me something already I think the appropriate response is not the right side is literally on fire what happens to spend the cost for exactly exactly what people don't get that you know we have to explain the the the Reichstag in nineteen thirty four thirty three I can't member thirty thirty three and a three okay so Hitler had just taken power and somehow the Reichstag the German parliament is set of flame and the **** brilliantly in market value in dastardly fashion decided let's use this crisis to do something and what they did of course is to spend you know most of the liberties that Germans had at that time and it was for safety against the maniacs who were lighting our buildings on fire that's kind of what you're getting at in this article people are clamoring to do something but there's a time when the government does something and it in fact harms people. absolutely and and you know if this horrible shooting in Odessa Texas. this is a is an example of failure it's a failure of local police even before any of the facts came out Elizabeth Warren was tweeting that Congress must act okay but she didn't even know what happened there because nobody knew when you actually dig into what happened this was a mentally ill guy living in a tiny house without electricity I don't know if you've ever been in a Texas summer. living without electricity air conditioning in the summer in Texas he would sit on top of his house shooting animals in a residential neighborhood at night shooting at like squirrels and opossums that went by his house he threatened his neighbors with a rifle local each had called the local police on him the police couldn't find him because his address didn't show up on their Google map I'm serious. and so they didn't bring a man and he and he shot up the town this is not the leader of the federal government don't you know background check would have prevented this in fact this guy failed a background check. this guy for alien legally background check in body gonna legal okay that's kind of the point in the in the conversation with with my niece I was saying that listen when we clamor for new gun laws it sounds so easy and and I think the reason I always want to think about if somebody has a point of you why do they have this point of view John right now in the in the issue is that people are convinced that it's very simple and that there are you know people who don't care about solving the problem who are giving money to the NRA and the NRA doesn't care about the problem and and in other words it's a false narrative and so they say if only we would do this if only we would do that and I said listen most of these shootings are done by people in places where there are gun laws that have already been broken so the laws are are meaningless but again it's and it's just a narrative that's taken hold in what we have to do and I like on the show by having you one is is talk about the specifics right and in this specific case this guy should never had a gun he didn't buy the gun legally the police were called on him he should have been brought in examined by psychiatrist and committed to a mental institution but liberals closed all the mental institutions back in the sixties and seventies when they were seriously promoting the theory and listen to me carefully I'm not making this up that schizophrenia is simply an alternative way of seeing the world. there are three Eric's who just heard that right now and two of them agree that that's a bad idea the other one doesn't know what he thinks we're gonna be right back folks are gonna Johnson the rack amazing stuff this is their contacts to show you can find him a taxes talk dot com and you can watch us on YouTube on the attacks show

"That Thurston on K G O eight ten problems more difficult than I imagined that the be responsibilities placed in the United States are greater than I imagined. And there are greater limitations upon our ability to bring about a favorable result than I had imagined. And of course, that's John Fitzgerald Kennedy on this president's. They were playing sounds of presidents, and I'm John Rothman. And you know, what John I'm Pat Thurston that I'm glad that that was the sound that was played of John Kennedy had difficult. It actually is it's supposed to be. That's what you get. When you have a really functioning government. It's not easy to just make massive changes. It's not easy to accomplish everything that you want to because there are a lot of factions existing in a country of our size and at toward that end. I think I'm not done with discussing what I believe is the immense danger. When one branch of government attempts to usurp the power from an echo, equal branch of government. You know, where they're supposed to be. Able to balance one another out. It's it's really frightening to me. And so one of the things that I was hoping he would talk a little bit about because John Rothman, you are a scholarly you are an historian, and you also Jewish and because you're Jewish. The fact of the matter is having those other things in your background means that you paid very close attention to some of the most important and impactful events that have affect us around the world. And of course, the biggest was the holocaust now prior to the holocaust. They're worth things that happened in Germany under chancellor Hitler. He was the chancellor, right? Correct. That gave him an inordinate in ordinate amount of power. Now. I'm gonna ask you to talk about this in a minute. Not because I want to make a comparison between the holocaust and what's happening in the United States of America today. The holocaust is something. That is incomparable. It is something that is set apart. And hopefully, it will never have an equal. However, the rise of the power of Adolf Hitler is something that Americans need to know more about how did it happen? And one of the things that happened was the enabling act talked to us about that. So Pat when you and I talked as soon as this happened, and Pat, and I do talk when we're not of air, we we're very good friends immediately. I told her that what hit me was the enabling act formerly titled the law to remedy the distress of people and Reich, it was an amendment to the Ymer constitution that gave the German cabinet in effect. Adolf Hitler the power to enact laws without the involvement of the German parliament. The enabling act gave Hitler plenary powers and followed on the heels of the Reichstag fire decree, the Reichstag was burned down. And so don't don't go past that so quickly. There are a lot of people. Don't even know what the right was the German parliament and one night it burned to the ground Hitler immediately. Decided that this was the excuse he would have and a law was enacted by the Reichstag by the German parliament, which met at the Kroll opera house in Berlin. And what they did was to advocate their power and give it to the chancellor of Germany. You must understand that the non Nazi members were surrounded and threatened by members of the essay and the SS. The social Democrats were kept away. And in the end, most of those present voted for the act, except the few social Democrats voted against it. But the lesson here, and at the first thing that hit me, and I I never compares Pat said I never compare Hitler with anybody because there is no comparison. But the the fear that I have is when you give up power, and I must tell you that is what the German parliament did. And if the congress, particularly the Republicans stand idly by and give this president the power to declare an emergency, which doesn't exist to spend money, which congress it self refused to appropriate. If congress allows the president to order, the military to build a wall rate fence, or whatever it is. And they do nothing to prevent it. I have to tell you that there is an analogy by the time, the German people understood what was happening. It was too late for them to take action. And if this president is allowed to get away with it. If as with the enabling act the government would be able to issue laws without the consent of the parliament, or the congress, it would lay the foundations for the complete abdication of congress from being able to really make a difference. So and in the enabling act John and correct me if I'm wrong, but the chancellor was able to enact laws that were in contradiction to the German constitution, they were able to deviate from the constitution. That's why we opened or we in the last hour repeated the presidential oath of office. Thirty five words, I do solemnly swear. That I will faithfully protect and defend the constitution of the United States look fit or the Nazi party used intimidation. And persecution to ensure the passage of the enabling act they prevented all Eighty-one communists and twenty six of the one hundred twenty. Social Democrats from taking their seats. I want that German judges and the courts are going to be critical in all this German. Judges did not permit challenge the law. They viewed Hitler's government as legitimate and continue to regard themselves as state servants who owed him their allegiance and support. What will our courts do and the president outlined it in his press conference. He said it'll go to the night circuit go somewhere else. Ultimately, go to the supreme court. Hopefully, we'll win. They're all I can tell you is that the enabling act in Germany became a cornerstone of Hitler's dictatorship. Now, I don't want to exaggerate nor am I comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. But I want to be crystal clear, we have never had a president of the United States who has abused his power as completely as this president. I want to remind everybody of the the steelcase in one thousand nine hundred and fifty Harry Truman now, arguably viewed as one of the ten best presidents this country ever had seized the steel mills and he did. So because we were at war in Korea. And the supreme court of the United States overruled the president. They said that the president had exceeded his authority. So what I believe, and I believe this very strongly is that what we're going to see now are the courts and the congress put on the spot. Did the president of the United States exceed his authority four one five eight zero eight zero eight ten do you believe that by the way? Just so you're aware of this on June. Second nineteen fifty to the landmark decision by the supreme court Youngstown sheet and tube company versus Sawyer said that the president of the United States who had issued this seizure. Order lack the authority to seize the steel mills, and it was interesting because it went all the way to the United States Supreme court every member every member of the court had been put on the court by a democrat. There were no people who've been put on on the court by a Republican and yet the court ruled against the president of the United States who was a democrat. And I say this. Because the independence of the court is so critical. So please as is the balance of power's here. And that's the thing. I don't think anybody would compare this emergency declaration by President Trump to the enabling act. That's not exactly the point the point is that these that any sort of attempt to usurp power from one branch, and and have that happened by another branch of government have them be able to steal the power to do an end run around one branch of government is something that if it ever happens should be the rarest of circumstances. And it should be something that every American questions, and it should be something that the supreme court puts to the ultimate rigorous constitutional tests. I point out that ruling of June. Second nineteen fifty two was a six. Two three ruling. And the ruling autumn line was this the president of the United States lacked the authority to seize the steel mills and writing for granted a heavily divided majority. Justice Hugo black held the president listened carefully had no authority under the constitution to seize private property on the grounds of national security. Now, wait, why am I saying that because in order for Donald Trump to complete this wall? He calls it a wall he would have to declare eminent domain. He would have to seize private property on the grounds of national security. And if you look at this case, and I urge you to do it Youngstown sheet and tube company versus Sawyer the bottom line by six to three vote. The president of the United States had no authority under. The constitution to seize private property on the grounds of national security. You know, this that is really unimportant case John because right now of the court actions that are taking place one that has been threatened by I'd say the majority of the property owners because a lot of the property. We're talking about is not government property. It is private property that is owned on the Texas border. The congress people who represent those districts have come out in opposition to this. And in opposition to Trump's wall that Mexico's going to pay for those individuals are not gonna go quietly if eminent domain is declared and their property is seized. They are going to fight it, and they are going gonna fight it tooth and nail. And I think that Trump's going to have a real hard time with that to this whole idea all the court cases that we are talking about this is going to take years and years to get through how on earth. Does that constitute an emergency only that it if it weren't? Urgency. Why did he wait two years and some months, right? And why did he say I don't have to do this? We have to take a break here. But we will get to your telephone calls the numbers eighty eighty eight ten hang on. We'll get to you. I'm Pat Thurston. And he's John Rothman. This is K G.

And he and she said, how old are you turns out he was born in one thousand nine hundred eighty six and then she realized well, okay? I can what you know, if I sit at home and hate Germans, just because they're German that makes me just as bad as as the Nazis, then who hated Jews just because they were Jews you can have individual judgments about individual people based on their characters, but we shouldn't be judging people as groups, especially not as national groups, and by becoming we'll taking on German citizenship. I feel very strongly that I'm actually doing something to honor my ancestors rather than to disgrace them. Simon wolf fish is a British musician with German citizenship since last year.
