How likely is a trade deal with China?
"How likely is a trade deal with China is one more likely after the topsy turvy last few days of the G. seven summit in France president trump talk positively about trade talks yesterday which seems to have calmed financial markets for the moment we were called and we're gonna start very shortly June negotiate we'll see what happens but I think we're gonna make a deal now that was a turnaround from a few days before when president trump tweeted that he hereby ordered American companies to immediately start looking for alternatives to operating in China including the alternative of bringing US companies back to the United States so to give us a sense of the administration's strategy we're joined by Michael Pillsbury he senior fellow and director of China strategy at the Hudson institute and he's also an informal adviser to president trump good morning Sir good morning so what is the president's strategy here well the president's strategy he's kind of telegraph himself when he said that this is how I negotiate and it's worked very well for me unquote you'll find an art of the deal and several other of his fourteen books he's co authored that he takes to go she Asians as a process very seriously he sees an opening he sees the application of pressure and exchanging of offers in the middle of the season in game where the final terms are agreed to and the lawyers get into it and make it binding here's the thing though markets and companies get jittery when the president tweets things like U. S. businesses should make alternate plans to working in China now let me throw China off that may make ten interest but it also makes US firms nervous we saw what happened to the market is really worth it well I think it depends on your understanding of China and just how much China has been to use the president's word ripping off the United States if your view of China which many people still have I called the obsolete view the old fashioned view people my generation have it sort of like eighty percent is that China is basically a friend it's on its way to becoming a democracy they basically want freedom a free market what's not to be happy about and yes there's a little bit of you know cheating but it's probably by individual companies no big deal if you have that view of China then of course you're right in a panic if you're an investor or a a CEO of a major corporation involved in in China or if you were alone Kane you're watching with the markets are doing right that's a lot or if you're a farmer in Iowa or former Minnesota so that groups important what the president is saying and I think Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and quite a few others on the democratic side support him in this they're saying that we now see a very different China than we thought this is a different China which seems to be focused on stealing our most innovative technology with a purpose not of sort of raising the living standards of a peasant and Sichuan but it Gerry in teen global primacy for China first in economics and then every other possible way and surpassing United States setting up a different kind of world order in which democracy will give way to surveillance and authoritarian regime this China it looks much more dangerous and so the need for a binding agreement with them to rein in his much of this misconduct as possible this time looks like it really needs a trade deal from us that can be enforced but can they lack in early may as you know we almost had that many people administration said were ninety percent of the way there so to be optimistic which what I am this trade deal was almost in hand then for various complex reasons on the Chinese side they reneged on the most important parts of it the legally binding part that laws either carefully to be put back on or lawsuits to be filed inside China the serious part of the agreement in other words so that's where we are now trying to close the deal is and what what president trump's book the art of the deal talks about is the in game yes what is the just quickly in the last thirty seconds we have left what if China is playing the long game just waiting for president trump to no longer be president well they're playing the long game that's the whole point and I think it's the bipartisan support from Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer in particular gives us a really good chance of getting a deal presence not alone on this a lot of people see this new dangerous China that I've written about in the book the hundred year marathon the problem is however there are super hawks who say let's not negotiate at all this country is just untrustworthy that's a small group but is growing in some parts of our country Michael Pillsbury author of the hundred year marathon China's secret strategy to replace America as a global superpower he's also an informal adviser to president trump thank you Sir an optimist about getting a good deal to her right

"He's a senior fellow at the Hudson institute. Okay. Let's get to that. What you call Russia gate. I wanna read from you to you, which is pretty rare for an author to have his stuff to him. Flattering. Thank you. That's very sweet of you. I after nearly two years the special counsel found no credible. Evidence of collusion. It found no credible. Evidence of a plot to obstruct Justice to hide evidence of collusion. Miller should have filed his report on may eighteenth twenty seventeen the day after the special counsel started. And he learned the FBI had opened an investigation on the sitting president of the United States because senior official officials at the world's premier law enforcement agency thought Trump was a Russian spy. All right. What do you say? Why didn't he why didn't he? I think Robert Muller is I think Robert Muller was part of a cover up. I mean, I I, you know, I heard a good case to be made a journalistic writing epoch times have been just 'cause he's been terrific work and jet said that he actually thinks I I mean, I may be misrepresenting his point of view here. But I think that he believes it was important that this time period was prolonged so that everything could get resolved and that after this period. Now, people have to believe that there was nothing there, which I think is a really excellent point. My my point is that that for two years the American public was put through this insanity by Robert Muller. Robert Muller was definitely a part of this Muller. Saw what was going on? I again, just the idea that you've been walk into he would walk into this investigation. And he found out that the deputy director of the FBI had opened an investigation on the president. Because he feared he was a Russian spy. By based on the Clinton funded dossier. It's just insane. The idea that mother didn't say hold on a second here. Ladies and gentlemen, something has gone awfully wrong at this at this institution that I ran for more than a decade this. This makes no sense. You have to get to the bottom of this. Instead there was nothing like that. He was nothing like looking at what had gone wrong at the FBI. And Jay was nothing like looking into the leaks. Michael Flynn conversation with the Russian ambassador instead Muller prolong this for two years looking at the wrong people looking at the wrong problems. You made a big charge here that he was part of this from the get-go could you expand on that? Yeah. I mean, I mean one thing is first of all they'd been listening to they'd been monitoring Carter page is communications at that point. For six months. I warrant on pages October twenty granted a pain October twenty one two thousand sixteen Muller comes on may seventeenth two thousand seven hundred seventeen that is more than six months. They have all of Carter page is communications going back as far as he hasn't deleted that Moore SARS filling the NSA database. They have all those communication. They know exactly what Carter page of said who cartoons in communication with they found nothing. We know they've found nothing on Carter page and nonetheless, Robert Muller, keeps us investigation open at that point for nearly two years. Even though the moment he stepped in there. He knew there was nothing on collusion. That's why it seems to me very. Clear that Muller's work was to cover this up with. I mean, we've heard different people talking about this since the Andrew McCabe, parents is I mean, it happened even before its intention to Kate went out peddling his book, then people describe it as a coup when they wanted to wear a wire just discussions between Medicaid and Rosenstein about wearing a wire. To record the president. And then invoked the twenty fifth amendment people refer to it as a coup. I think correctly, I think that's absolutely what happened at a certain point. When mother was appointed Muller to control of the coup that this was this was now under Robert Muller's control. This is never an investigation. This was an operation. It started as an operation against the president. And modern merely took control of it may seventeen two thousand seventeen. Wow. So I I have to infer from what you said that he's disappointed in his own conclusions. I think that I think take notes for a long time. They had absolutely must name. I think that he that mother wanted to keep this pointed at Trump for as long as possible. I think that the twenty certainly to the twenty eighteen election's. Absolutely. And what happened right after the twenty twenty eighteen elections and Republicans lost a house. Jeff Sessions was removed attorney general now, I, you know, I I don't know much about Jeff Sessions. I think the people who speak respectfully respectfully of hand. A a a good man is a good Senator and did some important things in general. I think they must be right. However, I also believe the president was cracked. I mean, the attorney general of the United States which used himself from these election-related investigation before he even took the job. He may not have known it. He may have just given them the benefit of the doubt, the, you know, the people at DOJ and FBI who will going after President Trump, but he laughed Trump exposed for more than two years. So I think that it's I think what happened was. After sessions lapping William Barr was appointed. He's a serious, man. He saw what was going on. He understood what was happening. He saw the paperwork, and I believe that he did it very subtly. But I think it must have been very forceful nonetheless. Like this needs to be shut down now. Okay. Back in a moment with leash Smith. This is a dark chapter in American history may dear friends, but the media is not letting you know that either. We'll be back the Dennis Prager show life from the relief factor pain-free studio.

"Window of time to mend its ways for Russia to honor its commitment. Tomorrow that time runs out. Russia has refused to take any steps to return real verifiable compliance over these sixty days. The United States will therefore suspend this obligations under the IMF treaty, effective February second Russia has jeopardized the United States security interest. Then we can no longer be restricted by the treaty while Russia's shamelessly, violates it. Return to full and verifiable compliance with the treaty within the six month period by verifiably, destroying its INF, violating missiles, launchers and associated equipment treaty will terminate secretary of state might Pompeii oh announced earlier today that the US is suspending the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty, which is an important part of European nuclear security since the Cold War. It seems like kind of a big deal. What does it mean? And what does it tell us about Trump's relationship with Russia? Brought on somebody who answers this and oh so much more Rebeccah Heinrichs is in the house. She is a senior fellow at the Hudson institute and a missile super expert Rebecca thanks for calling in. I'm so happy to do it. Thanks for having me. All right. So what is the just before we get into the the what comes next tell us? What's come before? Here. A little bit the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty. What is it is it a big deal wash people? Care. Sure, what the end of the Cold War. This is one of those treaty people think of it as it is a major Cold War treaty. And what it does is it abolished possession that the testing and deployment a whole category of missiles ground launch cruise missiles. So did your missiles that can range, and we we removed hours from Europe European theater? The Russians Sergei union at the time got rid of theirs. And the reason that we don't like them the reason that we thought that they were stabilizing at the time is because each particular kind of missiles are their shorter range. So that the person who is in range of them, these countries who are arranged them have met shorter decision time if Russia decides to launch one they had many many of the the particular type missiles, and so we. Ronald Reagan negotiated this treaty, and we abolished and successfully removed this particular range missiles from the European theater now since then though Russia has been cheating. They have not only been testing this particular type of missile. But now, they're deploying several battalion of this particular missiles your bomb administration knew they were doing couldn't get Russia to comply, but we're still bound by the treaty. And so now, the Trump administration tried for a couple of years to get Russia to come back into compliance with the treaty and routed and do that they just gone the other direction and to deploy more of them. So Trump administration announced today that we are not going to be suckers to use the president. You know, president has said that in the past we're not going to be suckers anymore. This is the perfect example of that and fair, we are you have announced that in six months the freshest longer complying with the treaty, then we are out of the treaty with threes. Gone. So we'll be out of this treaty. What what's the concern because people anytime you talk about pulling out of a nuclear treaty. You're telling me that Russia is cheating. We've been no we've known for a while that Russia's cheating. So why wouldn't we want to pull out of the treaty? I'm sure there must be some. If Trump is doing it. It has to be bad. There are a lot of people out there that that will think and so what are they going to say this is destabilizing? This is Trump pushing us to nuclear war. So the argument arguments for ion I support this I support this. I think that you know, for too long the United States has sought that recall, its arms control. These are the treaties. We have with other countries that constrain those parties to the treaty from what they can deploy things that they can possess different types of missiles, more had numbers, etc. And and a lot of people who have a lot of competence in these agreements think that by having these treaties that the world is safer more stabilizing. But but those parties have to abide by them, otherwise it just constrained the United States. It's just ties our hands and doesn't constrain bears. So I think it makes sense to get out of trees in which the United States, we abide by treaties like boy scouts 'cause we're American's how we do it countries. Like Russia, just try to cheat which on the margins they cheat outright. Sometimes and in the United States continues to try to get them to comply. So the fear is here for those who think we should be party to the treaty continue to try to get the Russians to complain day in the treaty. They fear that there's going to be an arms race if we get out of the treaty. But my argument to that is, but the Russians are already doing a Russians are already developing into point these missiles, so we're not going to incentivize them thing that they're already doing it. Just now gives us the oxygen to one perhaps did I deploy these things back in the European theater? If we believe that that's what we need to deter Russia, or perhaps in the Asian theater because the Chinese have never been party this treaty. And if. If the Chinese were party to the treaty more than ninety percent of their entire missile force whippy in violation of it. It's basically like during tire missile force as INS noncompliant missiles, if they were party to the treaty, and so this gives the United States option now to look at different theatres and say, hey, maybe we might want to invest in this particular weapon system again, also politics, right? They're going to be able to look at this through that lens. Here's what Kellyanne Conway had to say after the announcement came out today while he's been tough on Russia for a while. And I like to see how they're going to spend this one on this is this is a president who has put additional sanctions on Russians on bad actors where he and the treasury department has seen fit. He's expelled sixty plus Russians from this country shut down to their conflicts last count. And I think push back on Putin. Not once but twice when one of his puppets Assad in Syria gases, his own people when the president does that he took action immediately people have to. Start looking at the facts and the figures about how the president's been Russia at the same time trying to negotiate peace where he can and big resolve by two major countries where it's appropriate. What do you make of of this? I mean, we we always hear from at least some of the media that Trump is not just soft on Russia. But he's Putin's pop people actually say this kind of stuff, and yet you just heard that recitation of different facts. From Kellyanne Conway throw a few others in there too that she left off. What do you make of it? I think that Kellyanne Conway is exactly right. Listen, I I've been watching. I I've been that's kind of my main areas specialty I focused on US Russia relations US China relations because these are the great powers that have a lot of nuclear weapons. This is an area that I focus on for many years. And a lot of people have asked me, we're back. Aren't you worried about Trump? Aren't you worried that the Russians have something on Trump that could harm US security, and I have said since the since he was Republican nominee, and since then I'm going to be able to tell if there's something on Trump, by the way, he conducts US foreign policy vis-a-vis, Russia, and and Kellyanne Conway is exactly right. This administration has been far tougher as a matter of policy on Russia in doing what the United States needs to do not looking to aggravate Russia, but to look to bet you pursue US interests, regardless of if the Russians complain about what the thing is that we're doing and and I support president trying to look for opportunities to extend an open hand to Russia where we can get along with them. Because what we don't want to happen is an alliance between Russia and China if we can find opportunities to cooperate with the Russians that we can counter rising China. Then we should do that. If we can find counterterrorism opportunities to work together. And we should pursue our interests like like, the IMF treaty, for instance, if if they're not gonna comply, then we don't eat we shouldn't be party to that treaty. So Kellyanne Conway is exactly right. And you can see now the same people who accuse President Trump being an agent of the Russian government are pretty quiet now when it comes to the IMF treaty, or they're saying owners are going to aggravate, you know, they're kind of all over the board on this. So I President Trump does not get enough credit for for leading an American foreign policy. That's good for the United States. Anti-us win the rush Russia when the Russian need need need it. And it's tougher than the Obama administration was by far. Rebeccah Heinrichs everybody. Hudson institute senior fellow Hudson. Hudson institute dot org, check out.
US-China trade war still on despite Trump-Xi 90 days truce
"President Trump is agreeing with Chinese leaders not to impose any new tariffs for ninety days while the trade talks continue Christian Whitten was senior advisor to President Donald Trump and President George W Bush. He tells Fox News what this deal is all about. I think the president in this agreement may have undercut the emerging strategic vision that we were going to be much tougher on China militarily economically that was our invited. Vice president Pence at a speech, the Hudson institute and again at APEC right now, the Chinese I think think they've won in President Trump. I think he will be tough. And I hope at the end of ninety days he is tough as the Chinese haven't done anything.

They're saying he died in a fight. It was fighting. He's like a fifty nine year old journalist fighting against eighteen like hired killers, but they're saying he died in a fight. Trump is ticked off. Everybody's ticked off, but Durant had just a great piece on it. We'll talk to knows about politic on political on. I have to say the one thing I really liked about politic on is they actually have right wingers and left wingers there. It's not one of these events. This has become all right, wing all the time.

No, we can't is not going to things are getting intense because we're reaching the mid terms. And the thing about the midterms as the midterms approach, it is the right way to read the news right way to look at vents that everything is being constructed and placed as a campaign issue. So the big store you you're hearing about or not hearing about if you're watching the mainstream media, is this caravan is invasion of people coming up from Honduras and now Mexicans are joining as well. They broke through the Mexican lines. They re gathered, they say by there's something like the start at four thousand now maybe seven thousand. They may get up as high as ten thousand Trump is saying. He's going to cut off aid to Central American countries. He saying these going to send the army down which is completely within his rights to do to defend our border. And of course it's going to they're going to get here just in time for the midterms, right? And, and we know as they get here and I'm not usually suspicious about stuff like this, but. In this case, I think you have to be as we get to the midterms. Suddenly, you know, they're not gonna have enough food because obviously somebody's paying for this, obviously somebody supporting them along the way. We're going to start to see you haven't heard a word from the Democrats. Democrats haven't said really anything, but soon you're gonna have the crying baby pictures. Oh, the babies and all this stuff and look, I, I don't believe I don't believe that we should just spit on these people or say, you know this, you know, I, I believe they're stroke. First of all, they are carrying the coming out of Honduras and they say they're escaping and they're carrying Honduran flags. So what the hell you know, I mean, if you carrying an American flag, maybe at least we think you want to be in the country. But you know, there's just something it's just very, very, very suspicious to me and, and you know, we'll start to hear about the humanitarian crisis of it all and will start to hear, you know what terrible people we are, but really, really, we cannot take in everybody what, you know. It's a problem because if we stop that, we don't want anybody to get killed. We don't want there to be violence, but if we just let them in what happens next caravan.

"So there's no question that they've missed them opportunities here, Jeremy set the table for us. Beth. What what happens now? What happens tomorrow with this vote and then through the weekend? Well, you know, the Senate is peculiar place with its own peculiar rule. So what what's going to happen is. The cloture motion that that majority leader McConnell put into play. Last night has to go over two days. Once you put the cloture motion in, you cannot vote on anything related to the nomination the next gate next day that being today. So tomorrow that means that this thing comes up for cloture what that means it human terms is you're sending it out to the floor for final passage. So there's one more chance right now basically for Senate Democrats to to to vote, excuse me for some of these undecided folks to vote, no. And then they'll have another chance when the final passage comes along probably on Saturday after several hours of debate. So perhaps something new will come up between the cloture vote and the final vote that will change people's minds about this nomination. But right now it doesn't really look like it's going that way. We, it'd be senior politics editor. Thank you. You bet. Thank you. We'll mean we'll vice President. Mike Pence is ratcheting up White House rhetoric against China. Pence us to speech at the Hudson institute today to accused Beijing of meddling. American democracy. China has initiated an unprecedented effort to influence American public opinion. The two thousand eighteen election's and the environment leading into the twenty twenty presidential elections to put it bluntly President. Trump's leadership is working and China wants a different American president has correspondent Scott Horsely joins us now and Scott, this speech by a Pence follows the accusations. The president made at the UN Security Council when he accused China of interfering in the midterms now Pence today, same accusation and also tough on China for its record on human rights. When it comes to the interference in the election, what proof did he give? Well, he didn't offer a whole lot of specifics. He said some of what they're talking about is based on intelligence findings, but he accused China of using covert actors, front groups and propaganda to try to sway both midterm elections and the twenty twenty presidential contest. Again. This president and his agenda, the specifics he cited were not really covert. They were certainly over it. He was talking about, for example, the tariffs that China has imposed on American exports in retaliation for US tariffs on Chinese goods. He said those are largely aimed at rural areas, parts of the country where President Trump did. Well, that's certainly true. But you could say the same thing about, say the tariffs that the European Union has imposed on the United States or Canada, and I don't think anyone's accused them of necessarily monkeying in the US political process. What what China is certainly doing their overtly is trying to put the squeeze on people who might have some political leverage with his president today. The vice president referenced head inserts in the demoing register, calling this example of China's efforts to undermine the president. We getting supplements from China in local papers here for well, for you know, a few years now. I don't think. There recently, but prior that in in the Washington paper was well, it was interesting that they use the Moines Register that is the home state paper of Terry Branstad the US ambassador to China and the former governor of Iowa. And of course Iowa's a major producer of pork and soybeans to commodities that have been aggressively targeted by China in its trade battles with the United States. So you know, perhaps they're not aware of that, but was Pence actually saying that this was evidence of of what he was suggesting that this amounts to election meddling or propaganda. Again, this is the kind of thing that foreign governments do not not unusually in the United States. Other other countries have done it. Russia does it. I think it's a little different than what we think of is a little bit. The more subtle election interference that, for example, Russia has been accused of, again, Pence alluded to more covert actions mo- more hidden hah. Hand actions. He didn't spell out what those might be this. This whole conversation about election interference by China was part of a broader indictment of what Pence described as China's growing power and assertiveness, both economically and militarily around the world mentioned Russia..

"I'm Greg Jarrett. You're listening to Bloomberg markets with Pimm FOX and Lisa Abramowicz on Bloomberg radio. We are very lucky today. We are back with Bill Rhoads president chief executive of William r Rhodes global advisors senior advisor to the Hudson institute. Also seamer advisor to city where he has advised number of sovereign entities on restructuring their dead over the decades. We are so glad to have you in the office author of banker to the world a terrific book. Bill. I wanna talk about China, and I wanna talk about Asia in general when people talk about emerging markets, and some of the weakness recently that has emerged they say, well, China's different it's such a strong economy. It's still managing its debt situation at a good pace as we await the end of the comment period which happens today for these two hundred billion dollars proposed national tariffs on China. Do you agree? Do you think that China is immune? No, I. I do not. I think they've got some real problems. I've said on this show for the last few years, and I've written about. They have a debt to GDP which is still growing up three hundred percent of GDP, which is sort of incredible. When you look at it now, people say, yeah. But they got three trained in reserves. Well, two years ago they had four trillion in reserves. And so they have to be very careful how they managed to step situation. They still haven't cleaned up the shadow banking situation with banks. Now, the main Chinese banks are fine. The big state owned banks are fine. But you have some of these regional banks, particularly in northern China who had some real problems because they can't collect on loans name eight because the municipalities borrowed heavily. You have a lot of real estate heavy borrowing. And then most of all you have the state owned enterprises, which barred tremendous amounts of money and a lot of them are not efficient, and the government has not taken the decision to clean that up to the extent. They should plus say you're spending. Constantly more money on building up their armed forces. Because Xi Jinping has his vision of Asia. Not just the belt and road, which is his version of the historical Tang dynasty silk road, which originally loops supposed to extend just to Asia. But now, he's got it in Africa talking about Latin America, and they're spending just got through an African summit, which he does every three years in in China with the heads of state of of Africa. And so they're spending tremendous amounts of money. Also. And so they have to be very careful with their exchange rate. Now, fortunately, the People's Bank of China is one of the best run central banks in the world. They just changed from my friends. You'll shush one was their record sixteen years who kept warning about a key moment because he was very concerned about the growing debt. And fortunately his successor. Ye Gon was was a teacher of economics at the university Indiana for eight years, he speaks English as well as you. I do and he's very much aware of these problems. And so when you add onto all of this these trade difficulties it's it's not an easy situation for China. Now, the Chinese have his view taken, you know. They can basically Wade out the United States. In something like this. But the truth is this trade war because you start out as a skirmish now, we're in a full scale trade war if something can't be worked out on this. It's not only going to affect China. It'll affect us eventually and the world. Now, we also need China for Korea because we have all these kisses and love ends from time to time with these letters became between Kim Jong and President Trump. The truth is that not much has happened since the summit in Singapore, three months ago. And the problem is they still are seeing on all these nuclear weapons are continuing to develop their their missile capabilities, and we need China because ninety percent of the trade is with China. And the only thing pushing Kim Jong Hoon to do anything is a trade side because they're actually in recession there and the thing he wants he wants to sanctions off and the only one who can really implement those sanctions China. So it's a very difficult. Situation that's going on. Now. Unfortunately, President Trump is not going to these Asian summit meetings, which are taking place. In the coming weeks. He's decided to send the vice president, and you're going to have both Xi Jinping there, and you're going to have Putin. And I think it's a big mistake because of the very point you made how important Asia's, and the reason I've been told that he's not going is because he wants to be campaigning to try and retain the house here in the elections. But I think it's a mistake when you look at the the world economy the global economy. So I think China is very concerned. Bill roads as a as an experienced banker when do all these problems become the bank's problems. And I just give you one example we were talking about Argentina. But this could apply guest to China, although in different ways because of the ownership of banks in in China, I n g rob a Bank and the World Bank's International finance arm. Trying to collect on a debt that is owed by a corporate titan in Argentina named Aldo. And he happens to also own a golf course outside of Buenos ours. They're trying to press him to sell the golf course to pay debts that are related to his own corporations. And his response is you guys have a problem not me in talking to the banks. When does this all become the banks problem? That's what Mark Twain used to say when you talked about the debtor and creditor. I think it's happening already. I mentioned Turkey. I think this is gonna be a big problem in Turkey. And in a big problem in Argentina because the borrowings in many cases are bigger for the private sector, which is a case foreign currency debt in the case of Turkey. Now, unfortunately, Argentina went out in barred heavily on the sovereign side. Also. But there's no doubt, Pimm. You put your finger on it. This is going to be come problem for the private sector. Therefore, it's for the banking sector and one of the key problems. At drove, you know, really drove Greece into the ground was almost a collapse of the banking sector there because they couldn't collect any money on their loans. They kept rolling them over. And this is something that has to be watched very carefully. Also in China. Because these things flow right through and the end of the day, it ends up with the banks.

Us he's written, several books you need to read them all freedoms forge Gandhi and Churchill. Are two that I can't recommend highly enough Arthur d. do. You can you draw parallels between today and The red scare are, we are we facing a new form of of McCarthyism except it's now the hunt for? Those who will not abide with Postmodernism I. Think there's still a lot of truth, to that and let me. Come to realize is when you really studied the history of intellectuals an MBA interesting dog, wouldn't answer the intellectuals to history particularly in the modern. Age and what you come to, realize is, that contrary contrary to the their own. Self image they don't tend to be supporters of liberty and, freedom you look at the role, that for example German academics played during the. Nazi period we may, basically closed ranks with the. Government expelled their their their Jewish colleagues and signed, petitions winding up in, support of the Third Reich during the nineteen. Thirties you had a similar group think on the far last supporting communist and solid traveler organization signing petitions which got him into trouble the nineteen fifties And then in, the nineteen fifties when there were attacks on Descent and Scrutiny from government about the curricular that was being used in classes in sociology and in the, social science, social sciences generally, in literature the universities with a few exceptions basically went along with the with the attacks when. Bertrand Russell, for example the British philosopher was was denied entry into the country because it was. Eight theism there were some who stood up for his right, to speak even if they disagreed like. Sydney look and there were others who did not many others. Who didn't and I think what we're seeing right now is that radicalization long March through. The institutions remember that line for the nineteenth Has really come into its own in the American Academy in, the humanities in the liberal arts and in the social sciences and what they've done is to, create a, kind of I'm gonna use this term intellectual gulag in the sense. That if you don't it here to the party line if you are even even waiver from it or express doubt about these about the wisdom of, having such, a party line, then punishment is meted out to you not beatings and attacks unless of course you're Charles Murray. But with, being silenced and being denied tenure and be in coming under attack the difference of. Course Glenn in the irony is that this is all being done not as a result of government. Pressure being put to bear on institutions as was the case. You know with the universities in Germany or universities during the so-called red scare this is. Pressure coming from within could administrators If you look at if you if you look at, Nazi Germany though a lot of that was internal pressure as well not, just from the government I mean especially when it, comes to science the you know the. Doctors and nurses which, I've written about is you now, written about in my idea of declined book about the info the influence of.

Before coming in studio and felt, like a smoked a whole pack of cigarettes it's seventy one degrees in Seattle at KOMO news Late last night we learned, that Microsoft discovered and disabled several websites that were made? To hack into the computers of? The people who visited who's, behind the effort apparently a group affiliated with the Russian government Craig Timberg is a. National technology reporter with the Washington Post in joins us, on the KOMO Newsline good afternoon high you right it, was the group known sometimes as fancy bear or ABT Twenty-eight what can you tell. Us, about them has been one of the most active and aggressive nation state level hacking. Groups for some years they've been involved in many, of the big hack you know of including the DNC in back. In two thousand sixteen. And their their various active and they have a great name Vancouver who's being targeted what are. These websites look like if you go to them what happened is that the fancy bear hacking group made what they call spoof sites so the two targeted organization where. The Republican International Institute which is a democracy promotion Group and then there's the Hudson institute that both conservative leaning groups and what happened is. That that phony sites were made that we're. Supposed to look like their site and there's all this malicious software so if you ended up on the wrong side there's, a. Very good chance your computer is going to get hacked and taken. Over and to Microsoft say anything about whether anybody actually got these websites or was it kind of blocked before they they got out, to the public they have told us that they, were blocked, before they got the before any actual cyber attacks took place but I will tell, you when I when I hear about a handful of? Of these sorts of attacks my? Mind immediately goes to the, question of well what about the ones who that Microsoft didn't catch I mean this. Is what this is what hackers do so he's caught, two or six or whatever I think it's safe to assume there's? A, lot more out there that nobody has called for a guy like me I like tech news I like following it. But I'm not an expert why did Microsoft of all companies. Find and disabled these websites why not some government agency the tech companies often have a degree of visibility about what's happening out on. The internet that that he's even beyond what the, government has Microsoft runs a. Lot of products including online products the post you know Email is hosted, on Microsoft's outlook pot farm so Microsoft likely had kind of visibility that that the government doesn't? Have and you know we don't. Really really want the you know the NSA which is the preeminent cyber security agency of the us government, kind of monitoring people's political activity right, he's Microsoft allowed to do this are they making money doing this, or setting themselves up to try and get, a, government contract to protect US voters they they've rolled? Out a, surface that would allow campaigns, and candidates and. Government agencies that deal with elections to have Kind of? Expanded cybersecurity protection and they're. Offering that for free but of course we know companies offer things for free because they see the prospect of making. Money down the road. So on some level, you know everything that a. Commercial company does is is is is a capitalist play but? It doesn't? Mean that what. They're doing isn't level publicly spirited as well and they're allowed to do this though you think that they have the the legal standing to. Just kind of jump in and and and these. Websites service, it had, to go to court to get a judge, to give them this authority but my impression is that this is a. Kind of standing, theory that Microsoft, has used in, many cases, before the, judges have been okay with Microsoft using it in this way I mean there's not an obvious, profit? Motive shutting down people site that. May be a profit motive and being seen as it could have aggressive on cybersecurity and any response from Russia at? This, point I'm guessing just the it's not us why would we do such a thing they use those exact words They have indeed said that they just thought us they have no idea what we're Microsoft is talking about and it's a bunch of course..
