Gordon Chang Describes China's View of the Russia-Ukraine War

"Heard two different interpretations of how Putin's latest military action affects Beijing. One is it would be used as cover. It would be used to distract from a move against Taiwan and second I'm hearing that the international reaction to Russia, the arming of Ukraine has given strategic pause to Xi Jinping. Can we tell which of those is more accurate? Are they are they happy that Putin did what he did or are they annoyed at how sloppy he's been in the execution of the invasion. I think that Beijing looks at the Ukraine and they take away a number of lessons some which encourage them to be more aggressive. Some of them inhibit inhibit them. But I think that on balance, they've been emboldened. And the reason is that first of all, and this is the most important lesson. There was the greatest breakdown in deterrence since the start of the Second World War. Although the United States, the 27 nations of the European Union and Great Britain had an economy 25.1 times bigger than Russia's in 2021. We failed to stop that invasion. So you have a far weaker party. Basically defy the world. And they got away with it so far. And I think China looks at that and says that we would similarly fail to deter China that we don't have the willingness to use our power. The other thing is that although there have been sanctions on Russia, those sanctions have not been as effective as people had hoped. Russia's ruble is doing okay. They're selling a lot of loyal. By the way, to China. And so I think that the Chinese believe that, look, the west can't enforce sanctions. And by the way, the Chinese are so arrogant these days. They think that we wouldn't impose sanctions on them in the first place or that they would be able to skate by them. So I think that the only thing that they look at at Putin and our irritated is that Putin may have delayed their plans for attacking a neighbor,

Gordon Chang on the Rapid Decline of US-China Relations

"Give us the update from the anchorage summit to today, have things improved with regards to U.S. Sino relations. Are they static? Have they gotten worse? Give us an update, Gordon. They've gotten much worse. And the reason is that the Chinese have become much more aggressive. From anchorage, which was March of last year, we have gotten a series of propaganda blasts from Beijing around the fall of Afghanistan in August, where they're very clear and they're very open about it. And over the last couple of weeks, we have heard the Chinese say things and we've heard the and we've seen the Chinese do things which show utter disrespect for the United States. So we're at a point where deterrence is broken down and this is exceedingly dangerous. Perhaps the most dangerous times in our lives. And you know, people will look back at the Cuban missile crisis of 1962 or the checkpoint Charlie crisis of 1961 and say those look more dangerous. And yes, they did. But we also know now from the archives that both Kennedy and khrushchev knew that they would never start a nuclear exchange. We don't know what Xi Jinping thinks about using his most destructive weapons. This, I think, is more dangerous than 61 and

"He is the author of numerous works. You have to check out the most recent being the great U.S. China tech war. He is, of course, Gordon G Chang Gordon. Welcome back to America first. Thank you so much, doctor G. Gordon, let's start. Can I start with a kind of very prosaic kind of layman's question? We'll get into all the very technical and deep national security issues. But in the summer of 2022, did you expect for a nanosecond that we'd be where we are today in terms of China and America after the last two years? It seems as if just one issue. It seems as if culpability for COVID is not an issue anymore. Yes, this is astounding, because we don't know a 100% where SARS CoV-2 came from. 99% it came from a lab, but that's not a hundred. But there is something that we know 100%. And that is that Xi Jinping, the Chinese ruler, made decisions to deliberately spread this disease beyond China's borders. Now, for at least 5 weeks and maybe longer, they lied about contagiousness. They knew that this was highly transmissible human to human, but the told the world it was not. And then they pressured other countries to not protect themselves while they were locking down their own country. You put those two things together, it shows that they definitely wanted this disease beyond

Gordon Change Connects the Dots Between China and Russia

"What does China have to do with Russia? Well, one of the theories that we floated on this show is that Russia feels empowered and emboldened to do aggressive, action, such as invading Ukraine. When they have China in their back pocket, is the Russia China alliance, something as strong as now we're seeing a new super alliance of dictators that want to go against the west. Someone who knows China, better than anybody else, knows the CCP and the geopolitics surrounding it is my friend Gordon Chang, who's just terrific. Gordon, welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Thank you so much, Charlie. So Gordon, walk us through. What is the Russia China relationship? Why is China not denounced the invasion of Ukraine? And connect the dots for us. Well, first of all, Charlie, not only has Beijing refused to denounce the invasion of Ukraine, it actually refuses to call it an invasion, which shows you how close China and Russia are. When Vladimir Putin went to Beijing for the opening ceremony at the Olympics, February 4, they had that meeting Putin and Xi Jinping. What happened is they issued that very long communicate that announced the no limits partnership. But even more important, they announced a $117.5 billion in new oil and gas deals. And just a few days ago, Charlie, Russia announced the sale of a 100 million metric tons of coal to China. This means Beijing is actually financing Putin's invasion of Ukraine. And we see China supporting Russia in other ways. This is, as you say, a super partnership of really bad actors. This is perhaps the end of the Cold War post Cold War period. This really looks like beginning of a general period of conflict.

Students Protest Removal of Chocolate Milk From School Lunch Menu

"Let's stay with the schools. Is there a victory when it comes to yummy yummy chocolate flavored drinks in California? I love these kids. So in the line of holding protests, peaceful protests to make change. There was a school a small school district up in Northern California and apparently they decided to take chocolate milk off of the menu. Because it's too yummy. Two yummy two, who knows why they took it off the menu. And so the kids were very upset about it. And they decided to organize together this fourth grade class, and they said, you know what? We want a protest. We're going to protest to get our chocolate milk back. Now the teachers looked at this. God love him as an opportunity to teach kids about mediation and striking deals and about peaceful protest. And so they had a mediator come in between the school district and the kids. These are joking, right? Well, I mean, it was kind of just for the class classroom saying. It was this simulated medium. Chocolate milk. Yeah, that came in and worked it out and so now they're only picket line with their black leg, picket breakers. There were holding line and then antifa showed up. And they were very upset over the top of the mountain. But the cool thing is that the kids learned how this worked and ultimately they came to an agreement. I don't think it's good enough. I think they need me to get in there and do some collective bargaining for them. But they're getting chocolate milk every other week now. Once a week. So at least it's back to some extent.

Lord Conrad Black: Trudeau's Trucker Comments Are an Outrage

"Lord Conrad black. Welcome back to America first. Thank you, Sebastian. We've played multiple cards now from the chief of police in art who were the latest was the increasing violence from the protesters. Maybe it's not filtering through the mainstream media. Can you give us an update and indeed, can you comment on this cut we played in the last hour? This is the prime minister talking about the flags that are being waved, cut 7. This is a story of a country that got through this pandemic by being united and a few people shouting and waving swastikas does not define who Canadians are. So can you please give us a sanity check? Are there lots of truckers? Involved in violent acts and are there people waving swastikas lord black? No. No, it is in my opinion an absolutely disgraceful performance by the prime minister. There have been no arrests. There has been no vandalism. I accept that these guys honking their horns at night would be annoying. I understand that. But there has been no violence, no vandalism, there was one confederate flag, which is not a well-known flag in this country, but the person was politely and without excessive physical coercion seen off sent away. Yes. And the only swastikas that have been seen is only one photograph of the swastika flag. And that wasn't being weighed by a trucker. And the impression of the media informants I have is that these are just sort of trouble makers attaching themselves to a confused situation, a little bit like the hooligans who came to Washington on January 6th of last year attaching themselves that very large crowd legitimate law abiding Trump

I expected it to be bad Gordon, but did you think it was going to be this bad? Yeah, no. I expected China to have a lot of propaganda. But NBC just sort of relaying this without comment or criticism really was wrong. Yes, China does see itself as a leader of the developing world, but a lot in the developing world will take Chinese money, but they're really upset.

Gordon Chang Discusses China War Games With US Targets in Secret Desert Site

"With us now is the foremost expert on China. He's terrific. He is the author of the great U.S. China tech war. And it is Gordon Chang and Gordon are you with us now? I am Charlie and thank you so much. You bet you do a wonderful job and talk about our enemy, China, and you have been on the cutting edge of this for quite some time. So let's talk about this breaking news here. China war games with the United States targets in secret desert site. What is going on with the Chinese Communist Party militarily right now? It seems like they're ramping up and I'm not really sure what we're doing domestically militarily. That's a separate issue. So give us the insight, give us the breaking news of what's happening from the Chinese Communist Party militarily. The breaking news is that satellite imagery has seen an aircraft carrier and a destroyer a replica in China's Xinjiang in the northwest part of the country, used for target practice. This has occurred before where China has built replica replicas of U.S. Navy ships. And so to a certain extent, this is ground log day, but the American people are starting to pay attention and that is what is the news. And the broader context, Charlie, is that China's involved in the perhaps the world's fastest military buildup certainly the fastest since the Third Reich, and we know from history that when militant regimes build up their militaries like this, they always use them in acts of aggression. That's definitely true. Do you anticipate China making a move towards Taiwan in the coming months, it sure seems that that's what some of the rumblings and intelligence is showing. It could be coming months. It could be after the Olympics, which start in February of next year, or it could be India could be Japan could be any other country that borders China because we know that China believes that it should be much larger than it is today. And in fact, Chinese leader Xi Jinping has been hinting that he should be ruling the world. Chinese officials since 2018 have been saying that the moon and Mars should be considered sovereign Chinese territory. This is the most ambitious human history.

Will We Ever Know the Truth About the Wuhan Virus?

"We're back on America first one on one with my friend Gordon Chang. We have to mention because it is back in the news again, Gordon. Wuhan, the coronavirus. Now there's even talk of the dnieper virus being involved in one shape or another. My take as somebody who's worked in a post communist nation for 15 years whose parents escaped a communist nation, as long as there is a communist party in China running that dictatorship, we will never ever know the truth. Unless, of course, there is a high level defector that brings the goods out. We condemn to just constantly hear the prevarications and the propaganda or do you think at some point we will find out whether or not it was artificially created whether or not it was a leak or a weaponization. What's your prognosis? Yeah, I think we will eventually find out said, but it'll take a little while, and it's precisely for the reason you said. You know, we have had some very brave Chinese souls actually put themselves at risk to come tell us what happened. Like doctor Lee mignon, who fled from Hong Kong after being threatened. You know, we have heard these voices. But the other thing, of course, is that this virus leaves a trail. And for instance, there are unusual combinations of amino acids like the double CGG sequence, which does not occur in nature. Only occurs after genes placing. So we're getting a pretty clear picture about where this came from. And I'm sure that within a couple of years, we will have even more. But there's one thing we know said, a 100% that regardless of where this disease came from. Xi Jinping took decisions that deliberately spread this virus beyond China's borders. He's lied about contagiousness and while locking down his own country, he forced other countries to accept rivals from China without restrictions without quarantines. That's what spread this

And we have a hard time understanding the concept of evil. Well, in China, we are seeing evil tactics, whether it's the deliberate spread of COVID-19 beyond China's borders, whether it's the sale of fentanyl, which is a Chinese Communist Party project.

We've seen an increase in the number of these incursions meant to intimidate taiwan taiwan. For the part they look at this and of course they're extremely concerned especially when it's connected with the hostile propaganda That was directed against the taiwanese foreign minister but most people in taiwan have now Got to the point where they're more resolute than they were in the past because china's tactics are encouraging the taiwanese to actually realize that they must defend themselves and they must take action. Now is a taiwanese in estimates. You're you're not really getting nervous that he didn't have helped them United states japan of somebody or they extremely nervous because china's provocations have generally been on the uptick this year Japan has actually been much more resolute. There have been statements from senior. Japanese figures that They consider taiwan to be integral to the defensive japan. Which it is. Because it's one long island chain with taiwan onto south and japan and the north matter of fact the southernmost inhabited japanese island is actually south of taipei. And you can see the island of taiwan from yonaguni gumi Also the united states has started to step up. Its deterrent patrols. These are the us navy in the us coastguard in china's peripheral waters. But everyone is extremely nervous because there are a number of things going on especially inside china. That would drive. See jinping the chinese ruler into even more belligerent actions.

Twenty second district congressman. devin nunes. welcome back to america. I always a pleasure thank you yes indeed. My friends call me sea bass. Don't ask why so. It's a special reason we've got to talk about dr. We talk about the only time to come out after almost two years. But first things first your reaction to the tragic footage coming out of the haitians under the bridge and del rio and then today what happened. Now with the un. He's leaving biden. Says we're going to get it under control. I thought they fixed the border that we broken. The trump administration congressman. Well like always there up you skating. And they're hoping that the press covers them. I mean the challenge that they have now is becoming impossible because there's so many people at the border remember. You've got the del rio crossing where the haitians are. But you still have multiple other crossings where there's thousands of people a day that are coming across. I was just down there a couple a couple of months ago. It just never stops never stops because the binding administration changed the rules on where you can apply and how you can apply for asylum. That's all that's going on here so I would like to know how these haitians all arrived here. It has to be that they paid money to the drug cartels. Essentially what you have. Is you have the drug cartels running people into the united states of america where this is now a money making scheme and and i say that not to go into something This was the california border. But just a just a month ago or so. I was down there and i ran into people and i thought they spoke spanish and then i realized they didn't speak spanish at all.

"Good morning america. This is the cantabile trunk. Cast mccabe's here sunday morning. What a mess. The world is in. What is today. Is gordon chang. And his twitter. Handle gordon g. Chang signed after his twitter handle. I'll gordon chang. The morning on sunday morning. What the heck is going on or charter is a mess They've got twin problems. Internally one of them is the flooding which is getting worse and worse and the other is the delta variant There was the outbreak. That's they say started on july twenty now spread to most of the country including the big cities like beijing. China has really no answer to it. So it's got to internal problems and it doesn't really have the ability to deal with either of them right now. You know they let loose. You know god punishes you know. They let it loose in the world. They protected themselves from the original covert nineteen. Then let it loose on europe. They let it loose on on on on the united states intel. Anybody now. I guess it's payback time. What else can you tell us about that. Well people around the world have been talking about karma when it comes to china and covered nineteen I it appears that it started in a lab in wuhan but the one thing we know john is that see jinping. The chinese ruler took steps in two thousand nineteen and early twenty twenty To release this virus on the world. He lied about contagious nece. He knew it was highly contagious. Told the world. It was not and then while he was walking down his own country he was pressuring other countries not to impose travel restrictions and quarantines on arrivals from china and it was those arrivals that spread this disease around the world. It should not have left china Right now it's come. Back and beijing has had zero cova paulie but the bug doesn't respect it worldwide. A big problem. I mean what did they. What did it chinese do doing. They have isolated cities from travel employed. The county messed methods that they started with and muharraq in two thousand nineteen which means that for instance they save it was only one case of covert in a worker at ningbo port but they shut down that facility which is the third largest container port in the world. Now i tend to think that there were more than just one infection. But this is what they do And also there's mass testing so for instance in nanking which is where china says that delta variant entered the country. Some people have been tested three times. Some people have been tested nine times. So it's a method of of just trying to overpower the disease. Which is not working and chinese propaganda is now starting to signal that they're going to move away from their zero covert policies. He in addition last week was the they sentence a canadian citizen eleven years. Yes this was just a couple of days ago. This is michael spa for. He's a canadian. He was detained just a couple of days after canadian authorities detained mum long. Joe the chief financial officer of wall way technologies at the request of the united states which filed an extradition request. China has grabbed two michaels to canadians. Michael spam for the one you referred to and michael korva big And they are awaiting Their their face they also took a canadian drug smuggler. Somebody who was convicted and given a fifteen year sentence and then gave him in addition a death penalty which has just been confirmed so they're going after Canadians as hostage diplomacy. And this says john that china is not safe for foreigners especially not safe for canadians but certainly not safe for americans either. Is anybody traveling to china. Would see through is from the united states. Tourism from every place is down to almost zero. There is some business travel But china has been locking down Air travel and this is a covert measure. I'm so there isn't very much travel. These days but I i believe that americans should not be staying in china given the nature of china's attacks on the us We have another minnesota left. If he if you give advice for americans. I guess the first one is Stay out of china. And the second one is i play. I play this jingle on On radio on in the afternoons supplies cd. usa in a chevrolet. Do you remember that. Also i have a chevy cruz. John i love my car and we do see usa. And 'cause we travel around we try to stay off the planes as much as possible so when we have to go somewhere most of the time we drive and yes they should stay out of china they should also stay out of hong. And whether you drive a chevy or not. This is a great time to tour our country. When chang and gordon g chang Thank you so much for coming on. Always letting the american people know what's going on. Thank you so much john..

Xi Jinping Vows China Will 'Take Down the Old World'

"For the purpose of this interview for this discussion explained to us the significance of the hundredth anniversary of the communist revolution in two thousand nine hundred forty nine and the concept of one belt one road in how these things tied together tied together golden july. First of this year The communist party marked the centennial of its founding. Twenty forty nine will be the centennial of the establishment of the people's republic and between now and then there are certain dates that do have some significance for the communist party. But let's just take a look at what season ping said on july first. He is widely quoted as saying that We will cracks skulls and spill blood for those who stand in our way on but there was something even worse that he said Which i thought was more ominous. He said quote the communist party of china and the chinese people with their bravery internati solemnly proclaim that the chinese people are not only good at taking down the old world but also in building a new one really what siege ping was saying. Was that they were gonna take down the existing westphalian international system which recognizes the sovereignty of states. And they were going to replace it with what we were talking about. Before this notion that chinese rulers had the mandate of heaven over and by the way for people who are interested. Don't read the official chinese translation of things words because actually quite benign in a number of spots you have to read a literal english translation of the chinese. Because really what that does is it. Shows the the maliciousness of the chinese system. We're dealing with a militias ruler. Dangerous arrogant bellicose. Who wants to go out and kill people and indeed jinping has his own death toll which is now somewhere in the neighborhood of about a four and a half million

Do the Chinese Want Democracy? With Gordon Chang

"Gordon let me ask a tough question for you on sir. Do the chinese want. Democracy is the culture with the confucian background with the emphasis of the collective over the individual. Is this even possible to countenance in this part of the world. I think that it is because we see taiwan which is not a chinese society but is closely related to china where you have a vibrant very very prosperous society very And by the way they run elections far better and taiwan than we do which is do. They have voted gordon to the have votes. Reidy date not only have voter idea. They have a system said whereas paper ballots. What happens when they count these ballots. Everybody is in the room and the government official responsible for the balanced actually holds it up to everybody. Everybody then counts it because they can all see it and the process might take a little bit longer than ours but it is virtually. It's virtually fraud-proof now But put that aside for a moment. People in taiwan are passionate about their democracy. They don't consider themselves chinese. They consider themselves taiwanese But for many people you know they they look chinese. They and they speak a language which is very similar to mandarin and they've got the same Or at least they had the same characters until mao went to simplified characters but the point is yes. The chinese people they want. They're just like the rest of us. They want what everyone else has on. The mainland is a complicated question. And we don't really know the answer because you can't a survey of something sensitive like that. Okay if you want to know what. The chinese people have a preference for toothpaste. You can do a survey it will be reliable if you're going to ask them on something that the communist party feels. It has an interest. Such as for instance. Do you want more say in your life. You can't do that. You're right that there is a confusion culture there you're right that that is in many respects anti-democratic but we also know that the chinese people do want more of a say in their lives and so You know at the particular time. Even though communist party propaganda has been extremely effective in molding views. The truman show. I mean this is the only thing that people know nonetheless. We do know that there is discontent with the government style of the communist party and if they really had a choice Who knows what they would eventually choose.

"Gordon. You mentioned mile in your discussion of china today and the fact that xi jinping is creating a semi authoritarian regime. He's not mao. Help us to understand who now is and why for some i mean we talked about communism. My parents suffered under communism stalin. Lenin these are the figures we think of but the chinese regime is the deadliest of all we are talking about. Maybe fifty sixty million people killed in. The name of karl marx is a utopia told to us about the significance of mile in the building of the communist state and the significance of now still today. Yeah now is one of the early members of the chinese communist party which was generally formed around. Nineteen twenty one. The official birthday is july. First one thousand nine hundred ninety one mile was a enormous vigor dominated china and indeed dominated asia for quite some time When mouth was successful in forming the people's republic of china which was declared on october first nineteen forty nine mao became the most powerful china's theater and eventually he pushed out others And during mouse era the death toll was staggering far beyond any other leader. People say for instance in the great leap forward Which was the campaign. Nine hundred and fifty nine thousand nine hundred thousand nine hundred sixty one time of the great salmon as it's called there somewhere between thirty and seventy million people died now. In addition to that you have five million people in the cultural revolution. You've got several million here and there But maoz death total could very well be somewhere in the seventy seventy five million range other people put it less. But the point is that this was one man directly responsible for policies that resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of people And this is i believe. The person most has the biggest death toll in history now. Charismatic figure he was able to kill so many people because he intimidated everybody else and because of that chinese communism has never been the same before in pin admires mao talks about now visits smile places around china historic locations and he's driving china read as they say and that means that we've got to be concerned that we've got another msa dong who is now currently rule in china with you've described the incredible hotels the businesses the investment. What shanghai looks like. Can you give us a glimpse into what the reality for chinese nationals. Who aren't part of the communist party elite. Just how comunced a nation this still is and what kind of persecution not just we but ethnic han chinese suffer today yes just to take a look at for instance the ordinary chinese there ninety five million people in the communist party of china but only three hundred or so really count and the ones who are the most important. Sit on the pull up bureau standing committee which seven people and of those seven. There is only one figure of significance as days and that's siege ping because he believes that he has to have absolute control over the communist party and that the communist party of absolute control over society most chinese a have a decent snl of living but nonetheless they have certainly not as prosperous as they would have been if they had a democratic form of governance. And we know that because japan south korea taiwan were as poor as china was in the late nineteen forties and those societies are so much better and by the way in those societies. You don't have the death toll that we of course have just been talking about but the problem in china right now is not so much prosperity but it's people chafing under this dictatorial system. And that means for instance. If you're a christian even if you don't have any sort of revolutionary tendencies. I'm a christian. They just want to pray. But china has made them enemies of the state same tibetan. Same leaguers china has created these enemies by Forcing them into complete subservience and obedience. And of course if you're a turkic nardi if you're a wieger a kasich or one of the others Life is hell on earth because what we have witnessed since ninety two thousand seventeen when these policies were. I put into place in in sin. John which is the northwest part of the country. has been people been detained in concentration camps We know people are dying in those camps said because the regime is building crematoria. Next to them there is brutality. There is institutionalized rape There is forced organ harvesting from all that we can determine. and there's a policy of genocide. You put all this together. These are the most horrific policies since world war two. They're comparable to what the third reich did prior to the mass exterminations of nineteen forty one. And we've got to be concerned that china will actually make that next step because the policies are horrific. Yeah and american businesses In pont profiting from them like a nike and others. We're talking to gordon chang author of the right. Us china tech warfare. Him gordon g chang onto a gone told us about hong kong which was a a paradise of freedom in the region and financial center of asia. it's kinda fallen off the radar of the legacy. Media's not interested. What is the state of the plight of people living in hong kong now on the communist chinese control hung which was once a relatively free and open city has become moving very fast to a totalitarian system in one thousand nine hundred. Four britain promised to return hong kong to china as it was said it was to be handed back on july first nineteen ninety seven and from then on for fifty years. It was going to be a one-country-two-systems formula where although hong kong was formerly part of the people's republic it would be separate it. The only thing that hong kong wouldn't do would be to be responsible for its own defense. That was part of Beijing's responsibility so what beijing has done is is abrogated. The sino british joint declaration this one thousand nine hundred four treaty with britain and it has taken full control of hong kong. This became evident june thirty of last year. When china impose open losing against china in china and post what gone national security law on hong kong and that has been as people have said the end of law in hong kong because it's given china the ability and the right under that law to do anything that it wants what we have seen in the last couple days is for instance the arrest of singer. Tony wong and he was arrested. Because in two thousand eighteen he gave a speech at a political rally for a candidate who won. Beijing didn't like it so he's been arrested under an election law but we have also witnessed about a hundred people in hong kong arrested under the national security law and in addition to that china's closed apple daily which was not only hong kong's main pro-democracy newspaper. It was hong kong's main newspaper So this has been a total assault on civil society in hong kong and it is on the way back to being just another chinese city as the phrases used in that territory Let's let's go a little bit Broader without discussion. With gordon chang. It might be a cliche when you say you are what you eat. But it is absolutely true. Eating the right food ensues. Your body gets the nutrients it needs to maintain your health and that includes whether you like it or not guys. I'm sorry fruits and vegetables. If you're not a big fan and most of us guys aunt you still need to eat them. Do what i do. Dr douglas howard's balance of nature is a game changer.

"Welcome dear friends back to america's but it's one on one. It is our opportunity to go a little bit deeper to get to know our special guests our regular contributors people who we have great respect for and who does a to be better known by millions of people across the nation and across the world. Somebody who. I relied upon for years. Who i got to know through my good friend. John bachelor and his radio show is as far as i'm concerned sign. Knowledge is number one. He is the china expert. I refer to when. I want to understand what is going on in asia. His name is gordon chang. You can follow him. At gordon g chang gordon. Welcome back to this special one on one. Thank you so much. So i wanna talk i wanna. I want to cross the waterfront all the key issues. Not just what happened in the last six months. Not just what's happened since a china has a new self anointed emperor. But i wanna talk about The broader geopolitical aspects. You have a very robust twitter account. You have been very outspoken. In terms of the threat of communism writ large to western civilization. But i for those who haven't heard of you before who are tuning in for the first time to this discussion or listening to it on a video platform. Tell us a little. Bit of who. Gordon chang is and how you got the very robust beliefs that you have today said. I'm a writer. And i wrote a book the coming collapse in china in two thousand one in which i predicted the communist party would fail in ten years so as wrong about that The reason why i wrote that book was because lydia ni- were living in china We moved their august. Nineteen ninety-six because i went there to work for my primary client citibank. We were doing all sorts of deals and it was a very optimistic time. And i can remember when we moved to shanghai. Lydia got on the phone and said mom china's not communist anymore. And i agreed with her because i saw clients they would buzzed into shanghai. They would stay at the grand. Taio was just one of the most spectacular hotels in the world and they would say the same thing but as we lived in china As we traveled around talk to people work there We saw a very different country and that led us to believe that the regime was not stable. I think it still is unstable. It was able to get through largely because of the two thousand eight downturn and also because companies didn't hold china to its world trade organization promises which i thought they would so i've been wrong about timing but we're seeing a china right now. That is a dangerous now. A lot of people say that it's dangerous because it strong. I think it's dangerous because it's weak but fundamentally we have agreement on one point and that is that china poses and existential threat to the united states and to the international system. One thing you know me my. I'm a national security guy. I'm a big picture. Grand strategy guy. That's what excites me. And one of my mentors at a distance somebody. I admire greatly who we lost too. Early Colin gray a u. s. brit and national national who has written the books on grand strategy. If you're not familiar with his modern strategy difference read calling grey's modern strategy and he developed this idea with some of his british colleagues of strategic culture meaning that every nation has a peculiar strategic culture. Meaning how it's people and especially how it's decision making elites look at the world. Look the concept of national security and defense and it's different but belgium has different nash security from vanuatu or different national security culture way of looking at the world. Will you help us. Let's just start at the beginning. That's build the building blocks of of understanding the cont environment by understanding. What is different. about china. In my estimation it hasn't really changed since the end of the warring kingdoms period and it has been an empire in all but name whether or not who was in charge. But help those who are not steeped in the culture of this nation on geopolitics to understand what's different from china and america or china and belgium. China is in sense unique and as you point out all countries are unique but china is unique in a way which is actually frightening because see jinping. The current ruler has views. That are the same as those during two millennia of chinese imperial rule which ended in in nineteen twelve. The problem is that chinese leaders today as they did during the imperial era. Believe in tints. Ya or all under heaven and that means that they believe that they are not only have the right to rule All under heaven but they're also compelled by heaven to do so no many people talk about the mandate of heaven. And that's all a part of this so this has gotten too frightening proportions because see jinping has extended this concept not only to all of planet earth but also to the near parts of the solar system specifically the moon and mars which now chinese officials are talking about should be considered part of the people's republic. So we've got the most ambitious bowlers in history now and that is their culture. They believe that they have a right to rule. The united states on the other hand is powerful. But we don't believe that we believe that everyone works well when everyone is prosperous. Got to remember that at the end of the second world war united states was more powerful than any other nation in history. Not only is an absolute matter but also relative to everybody else but what you did was it tried to strengthen europe and we created competitors for ourselves with the marshall plan and with other things so this was the united states saying look. We need to make sure. The world is prosperous and stable. We understand that this is going to undercut our relative power but this is good for everybody. That in essence is the difference between american and chinese strategic thinking just to clarify for conservatives and for others. There is a sense. That america has a manifest destiny that it has a role to play is. The nation with the oldest constitution is the only nation that has a constitution based on the concept of individual liberty. But if these are both nations that have a sense of manifest destiny. The big differences one wishes to impose its system which is not based on liberty on all others have all nations as satrapies or tributary nations. In america wishes to be the example to the rest of the world of how to create these systems. Is that affect contrast. Oh absolutely Because the united states believes You know we go through the post war era when you have the creation of all of these multilateral institutions the un world bank international monetary fund. And the idea was to create this system of rules conventions treaties norms guidelines and. That's what the united states put in place that's the system that survive the cold war. Now there are problems with that system which have become deep in fundamental but generally speaking the united states has always said look..

"I think seventy five. He's probably gonna spend the rest of his life in jail in a chinese jail in the united states does something to free him which we should absolutely do i. Some of the left wing. American people say communism's better way of life. Have you feed it going. I have no answer to that because we have seen Not only what's occurred in The five established communist countries but also What was occurred recently on the streets of pomona and forty other cities and towns in cuba. it just doesn't work. I mean people may say they liked the idea of communism socialism but they forget that the only way to implement it is to for the regime to use force because communism goes against life. It goes against human instincts and as much as we'd like to think that people aren't perfectible. No they're not penzo. Communism has never worked and what we've seen our genocides and mass killings wherever communism has been put in place taiwan. We snuck fearing that. Something may happen. Taiwan will it be challenging us in the near future thing. I mean a lot of our chips. Come from taiwan for computers. Yes well taiwan. Semiconductor manufacturing company is the world's leader producer of sophisticated chips. I mean americans designed the most sophisticated computer chips in the world but we can't make any of them They're are made by tsmc and Many people actually say And this is subject to some dispute but some people say that china will invade taiwan because it wants. Tsmc other people say well. No they won't invade taiwan because they need tsmc chips. I actually think you know. Probably of there's a real risk of invasion. There are a lot of reasons of course china not to invade. But the one thing that we don't think about are the problems in the chinese communist party in senior circles that is see jinping the chinese ruler a very low threshold of risk. So he could do something. Which is we consider irrational something that we think is impossible but he has been sentenced to do it because we at this point don't really understand what's going on there but we can see the symptoms of severe stress. We've got a minute left. What else you have. The american people on a sunday morning the way that china treated. Wendy sherman The deputy secretary of state on monday intention was disgraceful. And it really shows that. As much as the united states wants to talk to china. China is in no mood to talk to the. Us that signs of problems in beijing. But it's also signs that we should stop our efforts to pursue the chinese. Because they're just not in the mood or they're not capable to have meaningful discussions with us. There was rooms around that When hunter biden was in china he refused to have the secret service around with him. Is there anything to that. That's just a lot of bs. I don't know but The one thing we have to be concerned about hunter biden in china is that we know he's a troubled individual if he actually did something. I'm sure that china's ministry of state security has video and audio recordings and they could be used as blackmail And we might never know about it. Because this'll be a private conversation between some chinese diplomat and President biden father will protect his son. We've gotta be concerned their national security implications here.

We are about is standing up for Basic principles basic rights and a rules based international order. Well he never brought it up when he was humiliated in alaska last week again. They don't want to call china to account the communist chinese party on allowing the virus spread throughout the world intentionally. What are your thoughts on that. Co-ord- yeah it was not just. China allowed the disease to spread beyond its borders. It took steps to ensure that that would occur. It lied it told the world. it was not transmissible. Not contagious when it knew that it was highly contagious and they pressured countries to accept a rivals from china while they were locking down their own country. That shows malicious intent. And i can understand Secretary of state blinken saying we don't want to contain china but you can't defend the united states. you can't protect the international rules. Based order in less you oppose and contain communist china. I it just. It's not possible because they're attacking us and you can't defend us in less you go after china. It's unfortunate but that's the way it is secretary of state. Lincoln should recognize that and start defending us. Yeah it sounds like it doesn't sound like that's going to happen. These sounds pretty spineless and biden saying that the the wego concentration camps well. Let's just a cultural things. That doesn't bode well for how we're going to handle our adversary china.

What amounts to superman soldiers while we're worried about mill diversity and inclusion in our military yes as director and then director john radcliffe of the director of national intelligence said china's experimenting on members of the people's liberation army to enhance them. We know that Professor at xinjin which is near hong kong in china is the world's first person to use crisper a gene editing tool on live embryos he produced Twin girls in Late two thousand eighteen. He said he removed the sea. Cr five gene from them. He said he was doing that to give them immunity to be but he also we believe was doing that to enhance their intelligence. There have been experiments in china on human embryos they are trying to put actually human embryos into monkeys to increase their intelligence and to give them the ability to speak languages. This is really weird. Science going on in china right now. They are fundamentally altering the human genome This can't lead to any place. Good so i understand. Also gordon the communist. Chinese government is pretty much colonizing the third world. they're building roads. they're everywhere they're they're forming an alliance with iran.

"This is the catch roundtable chunk. Mckee's here sunday morning. You know we have a new president president biden. And how is it affecting the world with us. Today is gordon chang As attorney columnists a famous author television personality. And he's going to tell us how. The new presidency of joe biden affects the asian countries. Good morning gordon. How are you. I'm fine thank you so much. You know he's had a lot executive orders he's had a few phone calls here near How is the asian countries Reflecting on a joe biden presidency with china has to be very happy because those executive orders you mentioned really gave china a lot of free gifts to down a lot of trump era protections that Really there were no reason for for biden to do that and more important biden didn't get anything in return. So for instance in may of last year president trump band grids of operators in the us and electric companies from buying from china for the grid and on january twenty just a few hours after being inaugurated by executive order president repealed that ban. That was indefensible. I can't think of a reason why he would do that. He's also put on hold a number of other Protections that president trump wanted so for instance on confucius institutes reporting requirements. but also. he's asked a federal district courts. or federal appeals courts To not consider trump era bands on we chat and tiktok popular chinese apps that injure american security so this is not been very good for the american people. But i'm sure china is loved it a lot. We understand the relationship of president by no with china in the past and his family. Is there any relationships in in the korea or vietnam peninsulas or any other countries really. The big issue of course is Hunter biden Because hunter biden received a ten percent interest in doha. harvest are s. t. Which is that shanghai based private equity firm. That was a sweetheart deal. It looks like it was arranged by the communist. Party's united front work department And this is really going to be a continuing story because there's a money trail there plus there's also other linkages that should cause the american people great concern but we haven't seen You know other countries try to do the same thing to the biden family though of course or at least in in the region but of course There's gonna be a lot that's going to be. It's going to come out in the next several months now. The question is the big news in the bad news. china's already taking over hong conscious about Is there any bad from what china and hong kong was. Just life goes on. I think the china has suffered reputational damage But they've also of course suffered reputational damage because of spreading covid nineteen beyond their borders and also because of the genocide and crimes against humanity against wiegert kasichs and and others so that's just cumulative i'm the trump administration in its final months actually imposed some sanctions on hong kong and chinese officials. It's not clear what biden's going to do during the campaign. He said that he was going to be the human rights president when it came to try to But so far. We haven't seen any evidence of that. What else do you speak..

He was a chinese agent and he was fired by feinstein. Never went to jail. Never win nothing. I don't believe so That he went to jail Is this is raises. Another issue john. And that is that A lot of chinese agents they get prosecuted but they get prosecuted non for espionage but for technical violations Like not reporting contacts with china receiving cash and not reporting it to the irs. These are are just sort of minor. Technical crimes and punishments are pretty light and anything else. You want to tell the american people. We're at grave risk right now. I mean we americans we think oh well you know we're such a powerful country We don't have to really worry about Future well yes. We do because china means to overthrow our government. They were As i mentioned inciting violence this year which is more than just version. That's an act of war See jinping. The chinese. Ruler has been dropping hints. That china is the world's only sovereign state which means that we don't have a republic in his views that were not legitimate and indeed. He acts that way with regard to the united states that we have no right to exist. So let's remember that. This is an existential struggle. China's challenge cross at us is fundamental across the board. And we better start defending ourselves or we're not going to have a republic.

One of the experts and on what's going on that whole asian community. He's an attorney columnist an author and a real smart guy. Good morning gordon. How are you. I'm fine john and thank you so much give us an update is so many so much news about spying. There's so much news about a subversive stuff going on you. Tell us tell the american people. What the heck is going on. We have seen so much of china's relentless attack on america. In the last week there was of course the revelations that The china's ministry of state security almost certainly had contact with eric swallow. Well the democrat from california who sits on the house intelligence committee in at the same time there are. We are hearing that biden. Joe biden's son is under federal investigation. There's a tax investigation and it appears that money laundering and bribery at issue. And then finally There was the of the video of professor dog. Shung remind university in beijing talking to an audience in shanghai on november twenty eighth Brought cast throughout china and professor d is talking about how china owns. The united states has influence at the core circles of america's real power as he put it and that They were looking forward to the return of america's elites to the white house and influence in washington so What we're witnessing really is china's comprehensive attack on america. I mean the. I saw that video There was almost laughing at us. You know we don't have an intelligence department or something so yeah the takeaway from that city. Oh is not what he said about china's influence in washington You know it was very clear that in the obama and bush administrations before them that China had outsize influence. What is striking about. That video is sheer arrogance of the chinese. Elite is political editor of cultural academic They just believe that. The united states is terminal in terminal decline. That china can do whatever it wants. And this is extremely dangerous because first of all. It's not true. America's a far stronger country than china. But what's really dangerous here. Is that because chinese. People think that way in beijing It's very hard to deter them. It's very hard to have cooperative relations with china and at this point that We have got to understand the risks to the american republic. Because anything could happen at this point when chinese leaders think this way. Well being this way but the what's reality here in our in our country. I mean i. It seems like how many students are there in our colleges. There's about three hundred and seventy maybe andrew. Ninety thousand chinese students at american universities and colleges and the chinese communist party has control over them because most a lot of them are their parents still live in china and if they.

"I'm John bachelor that is McCotter, my colleague and co-host WJR. The great voice of the Great Lakes. We start with the sound of missiles report over these last days that North Korea fired off a projectile what is characterized as a short range vehicle. There is a photograph. You can all find it on Twitter of NASA. Taking a photograph from space. I believe this is NASA. Maybe it was commercial commercial shot of the North Korean. Trail the missile trail Gordon Chang of the database. John's we will speak to the China trade negotiations soon enough, but we begin with the sound of missiles, Gordon, this firing of a missile is in violation of sanctions. Correct. To end is contrary to the conversation by North Korea. These last months, correct, good evening to Gordon. Good evening, John. And Thaddeus Corea said that they fired off a barrage of projectiles. And I think the best reporting is that there was a short range ballistic missile, if it was John it would be a violation of UN Security Council sanctions, but it's not a violation of North Korea self-imposed moratorium on the launch of intercontinental ballistic missiles, and that's what people have been focusing on. Because that would of course, concerns Americans, but we got to remember that even short range projectiles of are able to reach US. Forces in South Korea. So we gotta be concerned about whatever it was that they tested and before I turn into Thaddeus, Gordon. This is a pattern we've seen before. Yes. The rhetoric starts two weeks ago. Then there's a believe some kind of test last week that was not a missile and now this so they're walking up steps. Cho- posturing, again, haven't we seen that over the years? Oh, we certainly have. And you know, we have had in the last two and a half weeks or so two sets of firings. What the North Koreans are doing? They're starting a new cycle of escalation and clearly at this point. They are unhappy. They're unhappy not only President Trump. But there are also unhappy of president moon of South Korea. And we also got to remember that the North Korean regime will use violence to upset status quo that they find to be unacceptable, and that might not be too far down the road. That is Gordon what has president moon done to incur their wrath? Usually we've talked about him as being rather sympathetic to the north. What does he done now that has put them rightly opposed to him? Well, I think that moon Jae-in has not been supportive of Kim Jong UN enough. Now if it were up to moon, he would give give the moon to the North Koreans but moon, unfortunately for him is still the president of a democratic nation though. He's trying to undermine that, of course. But he still is the president of a democratic nation. He can't move as fast as he wants. And he's certainly not as moving as fast as Kim Jong UN watts. So mood is sort of not in good odour in. Pyongyang these days. And it really means that Kim on is trying to show his displeasure to get moon to move faster to support North Korea. The secretary of state on television was asked a provocative question. He was asked if members of the negotiating team for North Korea after no the second summit had been executed executed. Do you have any information about this, Gordon, and what how does that make sense? He would execute negotiators. I don't have any information beyond what is reported. This is interesting because we've heard reports like this in the past. I mean, the people who have been quote unquote, killed or executed by Kim rollers and show up about a year later after they have been rehabilitated. So we won't know for about a year. Whether this story is true or not. I mean, it wouldn't surprise me. If negotiators were killed, and the reason that they would do that is to instill terror in negotiating to make sure that they did what? Kim wanted and to make sure that they did their best to obtain the results that the regime demands. So yeah, it sounds a little bit extreme. But the Kim family has done this in the past probably will continue to do this. But we don't know whether it infect occurred in this instance, that is. Who didn't Gordon obviously somebody leak this to the reporter or the past as a precedent? I mean, do they really think that somehow this makes us more conducive to striking agreements with them because they're the most bloodthirsty ruthless murderers on the planet. Yeah. We want to be your friend. Yeah. That's how it's supposed to work. And sometimes it does work that we are so intimidated by the canvas because we think that they are willing to do things which are extreme. So there is you know, they've continued the Kim family's continue to do this over the course of decades. And the reason is because they believe that in fact works and sometimes it does Gordon. Beijing. Watching this this dance of Korea North Korea wanting money they won sanctions lifted. They want cash payouts was Beijing on here. Well, big Jane, of course, wants to keep the US and South Korea of balance once Kim Jong UN to be provocative, but not too provocative. I get the sense John that China has not been paying that much attention to what's going on in North Korea largely because I do believe that there is extreme distress in the regime, and we're starting to see it over trade. So my sense is that Chinese leaders have sort of left the building when it comes to North Korea at least for the last maybe month or so that is Gordon what's the best US response to this latest provocation. Is either to ignore it missile firing or to impose severe costs on Kim's on? It is not to do what President Trump did. Which was issue a tweet sort of indicating that he first of all knows about it. And it's going to be pressured to do something because Trump's tweets sounded like he almost was a little bit of a panic that. Yeah. Okay. Don't worry about it Kim Jong UN I'm going to give you a deal. I think that was probably the worst response possible. There's esscalation North Korea. Gordon, this the pattern? If we follow as you said the pattern of the past. There will be more missiles, and they will be bigger, and then we'll walk up to the ballistic missile. Correct. Yes. And it very well may have been a ballistic missile. Not just a hell ever wasn't obviously an intercontinental ballistic one. But nonetheless, you're no, you're absolutely right. This is a new cycle of esscalation. It's going to continue until the north premiums get what they want or they are completely defamed. And I. That President Trump is eventually going to change his mind and actually go hard against Kim's on because there's only so much that we can put up with from Kim. And I think that the president understands that ultimately will see much better policy out of Washington. You saw the phone call to prime minister Ave Orden. You saw that the negotiation with Ave is about esscalation. Yes. You know, this sort of gets the region much closer to President Trump so Kim doing on. Although he's playing a very dangerous game is also playing a game that is helping the United States. Ultimately by solidifying, our alliances and our friends in the region as they're becoming more and more conservative course about Kim Jong on. Gordon Chang of the Debbie's, Thaddeus McCotter, WJR, we turn to China, the China trade negotiations.

"By colleague, Gordon Chang of the Daily Beast is here tonight to discuss this very topic with our colleague, Dr Arthur Waldron, professor at university of Pennsylvania. Gordon, a very good evening to you. I turn this over to you Arthur to discern the weakness. Yes, there's certain things that are going on in Beijing. And I know that people have different interpretations. But clearly something is afoot. And I think that the better interpretation of events is at CJ jumping because of all the turmoil over the years is losing control. Arthur when you look at the top of the communist party, what do you see happening? Well, what I see is that they're not following. Their calendar of meeting switches sat out they have canceled or postponed without telling us when one major meeting, and then they have convened smaller meetings, and this meeting that we're talking about today is a meeting of provincial officials, which is not something standard. So my reaction is that if you have an organization that is well oiled. It. It follows. It's rule. The shareholders meeting and found a certain day directors meetings around certain days, and so forth. And this simply is not going on that suggests that they're banding the calendar because there are pressures on certainly the meeting that you referred to the major one that was not held is the fourth planet of the nineteen th central committee. This plan is almost always held before the end of the year, and it wasn't. And so it is now also not on the calendar. It hasn't been scheduled. Instead would see Jinping has done is he's gone to the central party school. And he's held a study session for a number of senior officials not only those in Beijing. But also from around the Republic, and that suggests something is very very different than in the past. And the problem is that you starting to see all of the issues that China has been able to avoid are now starting to have an effect, and obviously because see Jinping has accumulated unprecedented accountability, he's now responsible for all the bad things that are occurring. And so you would think that if there is this major change inside the party, it's probably events going against siege of ping, not in his favor. Well, I certainly agree with that. With what you say if the president can't sit down with his. Inner circle at least as inner circle on paper than we ever problem. I just like to think what it might be. And I see it as very very fundamental. It really comes down to the fact that back in the days of Nixon and kissing. Sure, we never really saw through the fact that the jigsaw puzzle piece for the free economically open democratic society if United States and the tightly tightly controlled communist days of China, which does not even have a real currency that they could somehow work together economically now until about I'll maybe a year or more go for thirty or more years. We were so enthusiastic about China that we were really her enabler. We got her into committees. We got her around problems and so forth. And so on. But in so doing we help Chinese create a very large. But really rather weak stay let me just tell you three things that are wrong with it were wrong with the economy. The first one is the economy is based on borrowing from state banks, ordinary Chinese could only deposit their money in state banks, the state banks, then lend the money mostly state enterprises at are never paid back. And the only reason the banks are not bankrupt is periodically the government refill the coffers and remove the bad loans. The second thing is that another major source of capitalist foreign investment is not domestic investment. It's not Chinese it's international corporations, or perhaps a very very rich Chinese and the third thing is that instead of being based on growing command growing demand from a. An economically independent Chinese Bill class. Let us say the. The Chinese economy cells to foreigners. So they depend on having a balance of trade surplus that is very very much in their favor. And maybe if you're Singapore, you could rely on back about a trade surplus world is big enough to absorb everything. Sam poor may, but China is so big that she cannot rely on this model if it isn't even a model that works on on paper. But she's certainly has to be have a cycle that is internally contained which she manufacturers goods using her own capital goods, which you then bought by her people and the money then recycled around that way. What's happening now is a vis. Sort of bombs from different directions. They're starting to converge on the party. And of course, the party doesn't make money the cart party spends money. And if the economy goes badly, the party becomes unpopular and people start blaming each other. They're already articles by many, I mean, there are thousands or hundreds of economists in China who know just for the problem is the thing is unknown of the party will listen to them. This is going to lead to split in the society. And Arthur in addition to those trends, you just talked about, you know, you have Jinping who believes in a state-dominated economy. And so what he's had he's enriched large state enterprises. He's actually merged some of them back into formed monopolies, and he's for the most part starves, the private Chinese sector. So that the really engine of growth in the Chinese economy, which of these private businesses are now very much. With their backs against the wall. And of course, now, you've got, of course, the so-called trade war. So a lot of countries not just the United States are challenging this whole notion of the economy that you just laid out and see Jinping has no answers. I I think I think that's right. We have for member she's it, although he's said to have graduated from a very famous university. If you look at it, you find out that at the time he was attending. It was it wasn't really a university at all. This was still under mouth influence. He wouldn't have studied anything serious sound effect. He's a high school educated man, and he's surrounded by many other people who know far more than he does. But he doesn't like that. And as you say, he's simply doing the wrong things. He's doing and he's doing more of the wrong things. Rob you've been listening to economists. Who said look what we've got to do is get rid of these. Money-losing state enterprises. He says, no no there are so big invaluable in there. What we depend on. We'll turn them around and so forth. So he's he's the wrong, man. If he were a CEO of a fortune five hundred company, he would be out right now, Arthur watch you described works only if there's absolute authority absolute authority backed up by the barrel of a gun is that true does that exist? Now is is the are the Chinese people frightened of the regime? Well, I I don't think so, and I will say someone very close to me was in China just a few weeks ago and at the airport was picked up by police from the immigration line and taken to a back room. And then asked a lot of crazy questions for our made, no sense. No, no police with any brains. Detective whatever do this. Why did they do that? Because they're looking at their dashboard, and they say they may have enough oil and they've got enough gas. But the terror gauge is is slipping and slipping and slipping because even though the society has got more people in uniforms than ever before the actual degree to which the people are in terror of the government is going down there. Much more eager to sort of play it and violate rules and all the rest, there's the balance of power between the people of China, and the communist government has been steadily shifting towards nineteen eighty nine. Said the government is becoming a source of ridicule not of fair. Well, certainly not fear. I'm not sure I think some ridicule. Some people actually are just as loyal and say, well, that's our government. But they are putting themselves in a position where people are gonna say. Well, look what the heck is going on. Because all the supplies everything. They have become accustomed to come into an incredibly complex network of supply routes and sort of distributors and all the rest, which are fundamentally in the hands of the government. So that means if you go somewhere, that's not private and more than half is not private, and there isn't anything. Then you blame the government for the private sector. How is it going to operate in an economy half of which is dysfunctional, Arthur Waldron university of Pennsylvania, Gordon Chang? Daily beast. I'm John Batchelor..

Well, it's one person's trying to get a certain amount of signatures that they can bring to Trenton and say we want to recall governor Murphy now as Frank said, you can do that New Jersey. You can't the New York. But here's the thing. Three and a half million people stayed home on election day over a year ago when he was elected. So if you don't like this governor, those three and a half million people that sent home should have been often reruns and innovating booth voting for whomever, other than governor Murphy, whether it was Kim Gordana or somebody else that was on the ballot or whatever. So you have nobody to blame. But yourself here. He's not going to get the required. Number signatures. It requires going door to door. Let's face it. Joe if they somehow found your house in the middle of the woods, which the FBI can't even find your house. Do you really think you'd answer the door and sign this petition? Knocked on my door. I probably wouldn't answer it and most New Jersey people wouldn't on the problem is is the number. Right. So the number of you have to get twenty five percent of all registered voters in the state to sign this that's over one point four million signatories. Now, that's more people than voted for governor writing. So he got one point two million. They have to get one point four million just to get a recall question on the ballot. So I mean, they've got the whole year to do it. But it's very unlikely to succeed. How many how many people did they get in California? When we call Governor Gray when Arnold Schwarzenegger step. That's a good question. I'd have to look that one up. Yeah. Yeah. Pretty well. No. That's not gonna happen in jersey now. And then we, but your point Albert is your is right on the money when you say people just didn't jump three million three million over three over three and a half eligible vote. Eligible voters show Albert. Gotta get off the boat. That's the point. I and then you have this other idiot Cardi B who screaming about about Trump. Yeah. Right. We'll go. We'll go there. Let's go. I wanna go to Georgia. I wanna talk to Georgia. Thank you, an eight seven seven nine seven thousand nine hundred. And I think we have all the technical things in order here. So I want to go to George Magnus if we can again, so see it at the China center at Oxford University. Former chief economist at UBS author of red flags why she's China is in jeopardy. Hey, Mr. magnets. Welcome to the show, sir. Really great to have you with us and a good morning to you. Thanks, joe. You know, you're Oxford University. You know, we're not I feel inferior to you, sir. And your way more educated than I am. So we are honored to have you with us, George can I call you George. Equals. The accent intimidating me to Mr. magnets is very refined. George is China. Really, we talked to Gordon Chang who I knew, you know, he's a friend of the show, and he tells us along the lines what you talked about is China really in jeopardy. Mr magnus. So what I mean by that? Explain it. I'm predicting down of the communist China. Call to make. The narrative that China has an interest in propagating to the rest of the world. And a lot of us have kind of solo about. Who you know? Steps ahead. No, go to stick it out. I think is not quite white China. Talk about his position in congress. More than I think we meant to believe. Kind of an authoritarian control. I mean, that's right. You can count on everything going right over time. In china? I think. Wrong. Well, how has China jeans to George under president, gee, both economically and politically, sir? Well, that's that's really the publicist because economically trying to we have aspirations in the future to help. People better often won't be big cheese in technology and all of this kind of stuff. So trying to certainly doesn't look forward law still to economic improvement and economic advantage in power. But originally, I think when she came to power in two thousand twelve something changed twice over China. New during the eighteen. Thousands change because the governance system. Basically did a great leap backwards to the times all mal and an era when authoritarian control Richard when the party was prevalent in everything whether. Kony or society on technology whenever it happened to be this tension between a looking economic. Cooking political government system is something which will not work out too. Well to be honest, and what effect have the tariffs played on. What's happening in China right now, George Magnus? Well, I thought. Imposed lost on the first fifty billion dollars of some attorneys products coming into the US. Hasn't really had a dramatic impact on China, so far, but I think China. I want to cut a deal because. Would've gone up on the first of January this. Yeah. Play ball. Intellectual property on. Measures would have had a profound impact on. Different sectors now. So it's. Walk straight talks are really important to China. That the president. For different reasons. Maybe. Was. Get the devil from the detail about terrorists would inputs cultural products. And so on. These things basically. On these kinds of things. But. Doc is. That's. Foreign companies in China. Be very surprised if they could agree anything on this much. Well, George Magnus Georgia to come back. We we're we're always on a time constraint on the show. We invite you back, sir. It's great. It's great to chat with you. And we love you taken everything and really love your accent. So you have to come back. Grace grace us with all your dollars. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Great to have you back this right there.
