Hong Kong Teachers Union Decides to Shut Down

"The security law imposed in hong kong last summer has been the force behind change. After troubling change in the city in nebulous turns. The law says police can arrest people for any conduct. That seriously endangers national security i. They came for the protesters and activists who ground hong kong to a halt in two thousand nineteen. Then they came for the media outlets such as the pro-democracy newspaper apple daily and its outspoken owner. Jimmy lai now. It seems the authorities have their sights set on the city's storied organized labor outfits a few weeks ago chinese state media called the city's largest teacher's union a poisonous huma that had to be eliminated and hours later. We sold the hong kong education bureau. Say it would no longer recognize the union of around one hundred thousand members or about eighty percent of the city's teaches swollen wong as a china correspondent for the economist. So then the union tried to mollify the government it cut ties with several pro democracy organizations in hong kong as well as education international which is a global group of teachers unions it also announced it would form and you working group to try to promote chinese history and culture among teachers and students but despite these compromises the union still declared it was disbanding on august tenth and it sounds as if that's not the only union that's been targeted no in july we saw five liters of speech therapists union also arrested so they had published three allegorical picture books for children about sheep protecting the village from wolves and the police accused them of writing stories that incited hatred of the government on top of this over the past euro. So we've seen three of the city's top trade union leaders arrested and that really has been deeply chilling to the labor movement. More broadly this is all part of a broader crushing of civil society in hong kong.

Apple Daily Increases Print Run as Hong Kongers Queue to Buy Paper

"We must press on, said the chief of Apple Daily newspaper as he was arrested. At the end of last week, the journalists on the best known pro democracy paper in Hong Kong carried on producing and writing. They also sold hundreds of thousands of copies. Some Hong Kong has elected to show their support by buying 10 at once and then just giving them away. But for how much longer Last week's actions by the Hong Kong authorities are making it very difficult for the newspaper to carry on to remind you, its owner, Jimmy Lai, is in jail, serving a sentence for unauthorized assembly and senior staff at the paper are being held at the moment, it's feared the paper may not survive for long, like a matter of days. Mark Simon is an adviser of the owner Jimmy Lai. The government has frozen the access to the bank accounts. They've frozen any interaction with the bank account, so they and they've informed Hong Kong banks not to deal with Apple daily. So basically the situation is the company is up, unable to operate its bank accounts, and that's basically that's as bad as it gets. But I mean, you're a large company, 600 employees and so on What's on the agenda for the board meeting, then right now that sounds like the agenda for the board meeting is going to be basically how to work to get the accounts on frozen and then what's the progress there? But it's not really a decision that I think Apple Daily is making. It's not really a decision that's on our side. That's really the decision on the government side at the Security Department wants to open, let The paper operate. That's fine with them. That's fine with us. If not, there's nothing we can do you It's they've cut off every every vehicle and every venue for us, they say if they don't if they don't unfreeze the bank accounts can you carry on operating? I don't think I don't see how nobody can carry on operating without financial, you know activity. In other words, if you can't conduct your business, how do you carry on operating? Uh, it's illegal action. It's illegal, also in Hong Kong. In other words, you can't contract for services or tell employees to work without the ability to

"Marco werman the world. It is good to have you with us on this friday. We begin with news out of russia yesterday. The biden administration slapped sanctions on the kremlin this afternoon. Moscow responded the rules. Daniel offman has been following the story for us and gets us going today. Daniel just remind us of the valleys in this back and forth. What were some of the measures. Us put in place yesterday and house. Russia now responding. We'll since president biden has come into office. His administration said that they would review what they call. Malign activities from the russian government and yesterday was the day when they announced robust sanctions against russia and that included sanctions against russia's economy that included kicking out ten russian diplomats from washington some of which the by administration said were intel agents and they also sanctioned thirty two entities and individuals who the biden administration. Say attempted to influence the twenty twenty presidential election so what is russia now doing in response so from russia's perspective. This is tit for tat. So russia is going to expel ten american diplomats from moscow. Russia will sanction eight members of the biden administration. Personally finally russia's saying that. It wants john sullivan. The us ambassador to russia to go back to washington for quote consultation. The us and russia have long. Been at loggerheads. Daniel can you some. How the relationship got to this low point. Well we could go. As far back as the obama administration remember. When obama came into office. they tried a so called reset. With russia with the kremlin and that didn't quite work out because of a number of factors one of which was russia invading crimea in two thousand fourteen and illegally annexing the peninsula and also leading to a war in eastern ukraine and that was followed in twenty sixteen with russia. Meddling in the us elections so many of these themes linger in addition to some other malign activities that the biden administration says russia's responsible including hacks and other influence campaigns so with all of that lingering. The tensions are only rising which has led to the sanctions we saw yesterday and now the counter sanctions that we're seeing from russia today right and very little correction to the relationship under trump. What kind of pathway forward is there now for the us. russia relationship. We'll earlier this week. President biden did call. Russian president vladimir putin in part to say that the us stands with ukraine and supports ukrainian sovereignty. But at the end of the call both leaders also mentioned that they would like to meet in person for a summit so there is a sense that both sides would like to talk even with tensions being high but it seems like that won't happen anytime soon. Due to these heavy sanctions from both sides. The wolves daniel offman. Thank you for being on this news. Thank you very much marcle. It seems mainland. China is not hitting pause on its crackdown on democracy in hong kong today. Multiple pro democracy activists and opposition politicians were sentenced in hong kong court including prominent democracy advocates. Like jimmy lai and martin lee. we're joined by jeff wasser strength professor at the university of california irvine where he studies modern chinese history. First of all professor your reaction to the sentences. I mean these are some high profile hong kongers and some of them are not young. Are you surprised by any of this. Well it's not surprising that it's happened now the sentencing. It was a surprise a year ago when they were arrested. Because it's not just their age but it's also they were largely seen as moderate figures within the democracy movement so it was surprising how widespread the crackdown on anybody who has supported even the mildest form of protests. And even the most gradualist moves to try to bring more democracy to hong kong which has never been fully democratic but all the partially democratic aspects of it have just been hammered away during the last year so these two prominent figures who were sent us today. Jimmy lyon martin. Lee remind us who they are. So martin lee. Whose was part of the group of lawyers who actually helped negotiate the deal by which hong kong will become part of the people's republic of china guaranteeing that it would have some degree of difference from mainland cities went to became part of the pr c and nineteen ninety seven when it stopped being british colony. He's a key figure in the democracy movement. I would add a third figure. Margaret ing is also crucially important. She's a highly respected legal force within hong kong and another person who's seen is very moderate. Jimmy lai is more of firebrand journalist. He's the publisher of the highest profile pro democracy newspaper so the three of them really stand out and marketing. Had i think the best lines she reta statement about the fact that the law needs to serve the people not people be forced to serve the law. And it's a really powerful statement. Jeff from where i sit. It seems like some of the younger protesters and hong kong have been much more vocal. In out mistreat strategically finding ways to out with the police. Generally more of a difference against beijing ruling hong kong then like jimmy is. Is there a reason. Beijing is going after these higher profile moderates. So jimmy lai has a very powerful voice through apple daily his newspaper and the whole media group and so going after him symbolizes going after. What's laughed of freedom of the press in hong kong going after margaret. Hang in a sense is going after. What's left of hong kong. Having courts that had a high degree of independence a legal system. That was quite different. I think it's important that the british colonial system it was never democratic in hong kong. At all there were just small places where people could express their views and there was a high degree of rule of law on the mainland at has often been much more rule by law with the government using law to shape how society works rather than lobbying around in which people can contest things that the government is doing so in realm after realm. It's the government trying to rein in the areas of hong kong life. That could be separate. But you're right. These are not figures who were on the front lines doing the most militant actions during twenty nineteen. I mean it really seems like many. Maybe most of the prominent pro democracy. Lawmakers the protest organizers the public figures that they're caught up in the government's crackdown many of them now facing jail time what is left of the movement the pro democracy movement at this point so the movement. You're right anybody who had any degree of kind of leadership who is still in hong kong is either in prisoner expecting to be in prison soon the important thing to notice that a fair number of people have gone into exile and i hate to ever for close possibilities because hong kong has shown a steady process of making fools forecasters. It was never supposed to be a great city and it did. There was a lot of expectation that right after the handover in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven it would immediately die and become just like any other mainland city and yet somehow it managed to preserve a degree of difference. I think it's important not to think of hong kong as being dad but the one country two systems framework that provided a lot of breathing space for there that i think is dead by move such as this and the whole last year of moves like it that have been coming jeff. Wasser studies modern chinese history at the university of california irvine. We've been speaking about today. Sentences of democracy activists and high profile leaders in hong kong.

The next of 1,000 cuts: Hong Kong activists on trial

"Rock. It's a scene. That's becoming ole too familiar in hong kong this week more pro. Democracy activists are on trial before appearing in court. One of the accused lee. Cheuk yan said hong kong's rule of law is deteriorating because he became a in some political him eight other profile figures have been charged with organizing and participating in an unauthorized. The charges stemmed not from hong kong's draconian new national security law but from the protests prior to its introduction in june twenty nine thousand nine millions of hong kongers began taking to the streets. They were opposing and extradition bill but they saw as a grave threat to the territory's delegate independence from the mainland government over months. The demonstrations escalated vandalism and violence were met with tear gas and rubber bullets. This week's training focuses on one particular protest so on august. Eighteen two thousand and nineteen mole than one million. People gathered to protest despite very heavy rain that day. Su lin wong is a china correspondent for the economist and is based in hong kong so the police had granted permission for people to protest in victoria park but they weren't granted permission to march on the streets but because there was so many people showed up inevitably people flowed out but the eight hundred august protests. Actually marks the first tig free weekend in a month so really was extremely peaceful. Compared to many of the protests that had come before it and so if that days protests remained peaceful wire or activists on trial for for being a part of it. They're nine high profile activists who on trial charged with organizing and participating in unauthorized and so they faced penalties of up to five years in jail. It's important to know that they haven't been charged under the national security law which was introduced after up. These protests occurred so the prosecution is accusing these group of defying police. Instructions encouraging crowds to watch and causing traffic disruptions. While the defense doesn't contest the facts that helped to organize and participate in the peaceful assembly. What they're arguing is that. The charges violate a basic right to assembly guaranteed under hong kong law and they are challenging the constitutionality of the polices ability to ban assemblies especially when the protests were directed at the police themselves. And you say that all the defendants are are high profile. Parts of hong kong's democracy movement. Yes so interestingly. This particular case is focused on an older generation of pro-democracy activists in hong kong who are generally considered to be moderate and who believe in trying to change the system from within by for example running for parliament in contrast to a younger generation of protesters who we saw take to the streets in two thousand nine hundred eighteen. So the fact that it's it's this group of older per democracy campaigners indicates the dominant is trying to crush the democracy movement as a whole as opposed to going after particular protesters who a particularly violent the two most high profile defendants in this case. Are martin land. Jimmy lai so muslim is considered the father of the democracy movement in hong kong. He's now eighty two years old. The other high profile figure is jimmy. Lai who is a media tycoon and runs a pro-democracy tabloid in hong kong and his despised by the chinese communist party. And so how do you think this trial will go so two of the nine have pleaded guilty to the charges and the remaining seven have pleaded not guilty to the sentence for the to pleaded. Guilty is expected next month and then the trial for the seven. He pleaded not guilty. Expected to last two weeks and so courts in hong kong still have a relatively high degree of autonomy and as a high standard of evidence it's expected in cases so people hoping that the courts will will still remain as independent as they were known to be prior to the protests as you say targeting these fathers and mothers of democracy in hong kong is quite telling so i think the outlook for democracy in hong kong is extremely grim and while some supporters did rally outside the court on tuesday since the national security law was introduced me last day. Her beam very few protests harshly because of covid restrictions but also because there has been a real layer of fear that is settled across the city. People have been arrested for holding up blank posters and slogans that we heard all the time on the streets in two thousand and nineteen have now being labeled seditious

"Start, you know whoever great just asked. That's cool. I'm sorry. Goodbye, compounds. I'll tell you why I come on. Okay, Great. Great. And where does Jimmy lies? Story? Start. Where do you begin this conversation. So Jimmy Lee. I was born in Canton. It's not known is going Joe in mainland China. He's born in 1948, just before the Communist takeover of China in 1949. And this is a very wrenching and difficult period for for a lot of people, including Jimmy lies, family, and by the time he's AH young boy, there's a mass collectivization campaign called the Great Leap Forward. And it results in a famine in which tens of millions of people are believed to have died. And so while he lives in Canton, which is a comparatively relatively well off place in China, it's still quite difficult for him and his family. Well, I Worked us a boy. Lucky's carrier. And, uh, Railway station in Canton. He told us that he was working at a railway station as a porter. And that's where he sort of first got the inspiration to go to Hong Kong. One thing I carry your baggage. For a guy who was 18 a bar of chocolate. And he gave me to indicate that the Tropic TV also that he almost half of it. And I was shy, you know, turn around and that my dear, is it What's this is chocolate. I said, Where you from? Hong Kong. Hong Kong must be heaven. At that moment, he said. I have to get to this place. So for this poor young man, wherever that talk like came from, he wanted to be that's right, and his parents are reluctant to allow him to go. He's quite young. He's 12, but He tells us that his mother also realized that there was a real risk of him starting my manga and she allow me to go just because you know you stay here. Maybe you you die from friends. And I left. And smoke under the fishing boats from but cows to Hong Kong. From a cow. He makes his way onto a fishing boat and he smuggled by a fishing boat in the Hong Kong. And so what does he do with this newfound sense of freedom in this land where there's finally enough food? What happens next? Well, he proved to be a very capable worker in this clothing factory. He works his way up the factory. I was not even 21 was made general manager off a factory or 300 people. What did the factory me sweaters? Nice work, and we've locked Was able to perform in the profit that they haven't made in a couple of years. One year he uses his bonus money to invest in by his own factory. And so within a few years he's running. His own factory. It's quite impressive. In many ways, it's a very Hong Kong story. It's a knopper to nitty that he just would not have been afforded the state in mainland China. So what happens to this factory that he buys? It does well. I was working as many fracture for T shirts. Be producing a lot for polo. Ralph Lauren. And some other brand names. On. He eventually creates his own clothing company. Then it's called Giordano's Jordan. This is very good Italian night and I was stupid enough to think that if I used Italian name people would think that because for military he takes that name thinking that it will give this Hong Kong clothing company a sort of Ah ah, European Claire. And Giordano becomes a success, and it sort of becomes the gap of Hong Kong and beyond Hong Kong they open up in China and other parts of Asia. And Jimmy Lai is on his way It comes up a multi millionaire. So within a very short span, this child of mainland China Who used to carry the bags of Richmond on their way to Hong Kong. Is now himself. A massive Hong Kong success story. So how does he get from retail in tow media? So it starts with Chinese politics. This is you know, the 19 eighties was a period of opening up in China and people in mainland China begin pushing for Even more. And so there is a Protest movement in 1989 in Beijing and other large Chinese cities, where students and workers come together and demonstrate and try and demand greater say in their government. And this is something that's followed very closely in Hong Kong. By this point, it's clear that Hong Kong will return to Chinese control and Jimmy Lai. He has this belief that China will open up. But that doesn't happen. China since in the troops, and on June 4th 1989 Chinese soldiers kill hundreds, possibly thousands of demonstrators in Beijing. And that is the end of the protest movement. And how does Jimmy Lai we acted the news of that massacre. He still believes that China will become a democracy that that time when the Tiananmen massacre happens. Fought there. Away for China to go. Forward. Liberalization. Was reversible. E was wrong that I was a dreamer. I'm stealing your life. Yeah, on and he wants to do what he can to push it in that direction. He sees the way of doing that is through the media. S o. As a child. We saw food is freedom. Now he sees information is freedom on by being a publisher himself. He can deliver that. So his first publication is called Next magazine and people in Hong Kong Talk about, you know, in those days like waiting to get the next issue of next magazine, and five years later, he starts Apple Daily, which is a daily newspaper, and it's a very similar sort of mix of Gossip and celebrity and also hard hitting news and investigations and Everything somebody might want to read. Basically. So how did these publications next Apple Daily? How did they treat China? So they're very critical of the Chinese Communist Party. In fact, Jimmy like gets into a lot of trouble over this, he has a column and in this column he insults Li Peng is the Chinese premier and person. Generally believed have ordered the troops into Beijing. E don't know what year was that maybe a couple years after the Tiananmen Square. He was saying something ridiculous, you know? So I wrote a letter because you basically questioning both his intelligence and his parentage, huh? Then China's Century. On and Order me. Two. Self Stick injured Animal Would be in five days or wherever to the otherwise them close The shop in B G.

"Citizens, Jimmy Lai. Lai. Has Has been been charged charged with with endangering endangering Chinese Chinese national national security. security. The The businessman businessman and and media media million million billionaire billionaire who's who's in in prison prison in in Hong Hong Kong Kong at at the the moment, moment, is is the the most most high high profile person to be charged under sweeping new law covering conspiring with foreign forces. And carrying a maximum life sentence. Antony DAP. Iran is a lawyer and writer in Hong Kong who spells out what these charges against Mr Lai mean for the direction of Chinese rule in Hong Kong. He's being charged with colluding with foreign forces under the National security law. It's very significant given that Jimmy Lai is such a high profile figure among of the pro democracy parties in Hong Kong. But it's not surprising. It's always expected that he would be one of the key targets under the law after it was introduced. What sorts of things has, he said about Beijing that have obviously cause such a fence. Well, he has bean very public in calling for sanctions to be imposed on both the Hong Kong and Chinese governments in retaliation for their actions here in Hong Kong, and that is specifically under the law constitute the the act of colluding with foreign forces. And so that's the the the actions that we expect that has got him into trouble This time. It's quite a sweeping law, isn't it? And he's not the first to fall foul of it. That's right. It is a very broad law drafted in such a wide way that it can catch all sorts of act. Devotees are so far there have been four people arrested and charged under the law. None of those cases have yet worked their way through the court system. So we don't yet know how Hongkong's judges are going to define the parameters off this law, but it's certainly potentially could be very broad. Reaching indeed. Can you tell us about the case of a teenage activist called Tony Cheung? Yes, Tony chill has been charged under the National security law for inciting succession and subversion. And this is in relation to social media posts that he's alleged to have made with messages of diligently promoting Hong Kong independence or subverting the government. He's also being charged with it with a number of other offenses, including just today he was convicted off. Desecrating the national flag for snatching a Chinese flag off a pro Beijing demonstrator at a protest. He's also facing other charges resulting from his various protest activities. How successful a warning shot Against other protesters. Do you think that these actions are, it's certainly likely to be very intimidating to other protesters and and pro democracy activists in Hong Kong. This is all part of a much broader campaign by the authorities here to crack down on all forms of dissent, and that has included, of course, arrests under the National Security law and under other Hong Kong laws. It's also included the disqualification of legislators the intimidation of the media a crackdown on the education system. All of this really designed to silence any form of dissent here in Hong Kong, and it certainly is having an effect in terms of intimidating people. I think you've described what's going on in Hong Kong in the moment as CAFTA esque. Maybe you could explain what you mean for those who might not be familiar with the works of France, CAFTA Yes. I mean, what we're seeing in Hong Kong isn't often arbitrary Use off state power or the use of the state and the Lauren and I about predictable and inconsistent ways. And you really see it in the way that the government challenges these pro democracy activists and protesters with all sorts of legal charges, often it being unclear exactly what the behavior is that they're being charged with. So I think for many of the pro democracy community here, it feels a little like they are lost in a sort of Casca narrative, not Quite sure when the Lord is going to to swept upon them. Clearly, Beijing thinks it can do things like charge. Businessman Jimmy Lie with impunity is that the case is standing up for Hong Kong falling down the list of priorities for Western governments. It certainly seems that even if Western governments are inclined to take action, this little action they can take that is likely to have any impact on the Chinese government. And we've seen that with sanctions that the United States has a Lied to both Hong Kong and Beijing government leaders. They seem to have have reacted really with defiance. I'm haven't changed their policies or approaches in Hong Kong. It all have been very dismissive of the sanctions and the impact that they've been having all these leaders. And so even these sorts of very assertive actions are not able to sort of change. Attack that the Chinese government is taking here. I'm not sure what else will and so I think that China certainly regards any action by foreign government as an interference in China's internal affairs, and they've given every indication they don't intend to be influenced by that. Antony Dappy ran in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, a reporter working for the American news agency Bloomberg has been detained by the authorities in China. Hayes fan who's a Chinese national hasn't been in contact with her employers for four days now. Robin Brent is the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai and asked him what more we knew about her detention. Well, the truth is not much or we have is the details coming from the American news agency Bloomberg, which were released late today, on Friday, China Time Now they say they last heard from her in a conversation with her editors before lunch on Monday. They haven't heard from her since. But shortly after that conversation, she was seen being escorted from her apartment in Beijing by blankly. Those police officers and in the intervening four days, Bloomberg say they've been in touch with the government here. They've been in touch with the Chinese Embassy in the United States because hes Fanny's a Chinese national on itwas on Thursday when they discovered confirmation that she had been detained. She had been taken and she was being questioned in relation to allegations off breaching national security and the Chinese authorities have recent form. Don't they were foreign journalists are concerned Australian journalists flown out of China recently. American journalists not having their press cards renewed. Yes, I mean, you know, we could have ah, much more longer and detailed conversation about whether that how this fits in with the diplomatic hostilities between the United States and China. Between China on Australia and the Chinese government's use of its very ambiguous national security law to target people to target journalists for things other than genuine allegations off breaching the law, But look a Chinese born Australian journalists Chen Lei, who worked for the state run TV CT TN station, She was detained several months ago in similar circumstances. She hasn't been seen since. Details about her fate have not been forthcoming. There is some continuation that this may be linked to that, but we just don't know the evacuation as it was off to journalists. Australian journalists a couple of months ago linked to Chang Le's detention Pretty much ended Australia's ability to report from this country. Certainly when it comes to TV, anyway. Yesterday as well was the two year anniversary to the day off the detention on Don't going detention off two Canadians Michael Coverage of Michael's favor. One of businessmen want a former diplomat, two men who were detained by China in China. In the days following the arrest of a very high profile Kuala Way telecom company executive in Canada. So look, it's seen on used frankly, by the Chinese as a tool is a tactic off diplomacy, but I have to say We don't know any details about Hayes fans detention why she's being detained how she was detained where she's being detained because the Chinese authorities are not saying so. They're simply confirming that they have her. What does it say, though about the state of Open reporting in China, particularly by foreign nationals, the foreign correspondent's Club of China Says. It's very alarmed, for instance. Yeah, but it's hard here. It's hard for foreign nationals that believe me. It's even harder for Chinese nationals. Hayes fan is a Chinese national. She's an experienced journalist she's working for Bloomberg. Last three years, but other organizations before that, and she is what's known as a news assistant here. Chinese nationals aren't allowed to be employed to do what I do to report you know, prominently in newspapers or on camera or on the radio. They can only be employed his news assistance. But that is a huge understatement of what they do. I have a Chinese colleague who is my new system and she is absolutely vital to our operation here in Shanghai.

"Now we have election days, weeks and months and lots of bad things happened during this ridiculous period of time. Especially when you have to prove almost nothing to exercise our greatest privilege the right to vote. Yes. That's true. Democrats don't want voter ID. They want mail out voting. Why is that? Well, because that makes it easier, though it does make it easier to cheat and to life. Is there fraud as there have been fraud? Had there been irregularities? Obviously a great great many irregularities very well documented. Very well. Dr. Fraud fraud right now. Is this something? You You know, There's a judicial standard for that, because irregularities is not a crime fraud is a crime irregularities, maybe Metamucil or something. But Political Metamucil. But fraud that's a that's a felony. That's a criminal charge and the allegations have been made and let me say this. Um, there may not be what you'd call ground proof of fraud at this moment. There is a great deal of evidence. Proof and evidence. They're not the same thing, not the same standard. There is a great deal of evidence in a great deal of testimony firsthand on the record by name in public on camera testimony by people who are giving their accounts of what they described As fraud. Now, either these people misunderstood what they saw, or these people are lying or There's been a lot of fraud. Now that I'm gonna I'm gonna go with there's been a lot of fraud. I grew up in Chicago. I've got a lot of Democrat relatives in Chicago and they love vote fraud in Chicago, and they're very proud of it. And because it's a Democrat machine thing That's how it works. It's corruption that works and there have always been very proud of that. But the news media is treating at all as though and they've changed their terminology of it. There's you know, without evidence that the now they're using praise, like without substantial proof of widespread fraud. That would change the outcome of the election, But now you put 13 qualifiers on it. Don't you guys just go ahead and report the news instead of President Trump yesterday. They're not about to start doing that. I don't think President Trump yesterday on Joe Biden and his behavior leading up to Election day. My opponent was told to stay away from the election. Don't campaign. We don't need you. We've got it. This election is done. In fact, they were acting like they already knew what the outcome was going to be. They had it covered, and perhaps they did very sadly for our country. It was all very, very strange. Within days After the election, we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint a winner even while many key states were still being counted. Now that is a that is an absolute fact. That is a ground fact. There were votes still being counted there and and the media who declared the winners. Well, the media declares the winners Don't Don't you know who they are? They're the media. And they declare the winners. What about the electoral College? Come on. Yeah, Get a constitution. Cancer solution. That's your CNN and The New York Times have declared Joe Biden, the president. They all voted for him at CNN in New York Times, but that's another thing for another day. Uh And and as I was having a rational back and forth with a couple of people are, you know serious people yesterday. And and I'm like, Well there, you know, there's no proof. There is no proof that and I said, Well, it's not that there's no proof. There's a great deal of evidence. There is a mountain of evidence evidence when it accumulates becomes proof. You know, I've used the O. J. Simpson analogy recently. We have the footprint of the Bruno Mali shoes. All right, you know the bloody footprints of the root of Mali shoes. We have the glove at one location and then the other glove at the other at the O'Jays asked We've got the blood in the car. We've got a lot of stuff here. We've got a whole lot of stuff. We have the pleasure of the prior record of police being called because of domestic abuse. We have the Democrats prior record of political corruption over the course of years. President Trump yesterday, Um, talking about the the well the outcome of the election itself, among other things, All you have to do is watch the hearings. And see for yourself. The evidence is overwhelming. Fraud that we've collected in recent weeks is overwhelming having to do with our election. Everyone is saying, Wow, the evidence is overwhelming when they get to see it. But really, it's too late to change the course of an election. It's too late to change the outcome. In fact, there is still plenty of time to certify the correct winner of the election. And that's what we're fighting to do. But no matter when it happens when they see fraud when they see false folks and when those votes number far more than is necessary. You can't let another person steal that election from you. That certainly seems like a noble goal, not a loving that person is still the election for you when you've got a great deal of evidence, and again, one of the things I've been talking about for a couple of weeks now, maybe what we're discovering is that this is perfectly normal for Democrat jurisdictions and presidential elections.

This is what you see Every attempt. This is what Democrats who President Trump in his video yesterday. I watched it yesterday of Sun was still up was not last night. It was daytime. Released it on Facebook. You can see it there. I guess we could post it to Um And, um you know, fraud is the fraud everywhere. These are not the actions of people who want fair elections. These are the actions of people who want to steal elections who are willing to create fraud. The only conceivable reason why you would block common sense measures to verify legal eligibility for voting. As you are trying to encourage, enable, solicit or carry out fraud. Uh huh. And And honestly, you look at some of the behaviors and and you have to ask questions. If you're a curious minded person, and if you're interested in getting to the truth on these matters There is a lot of truth to get to no doubt about it. I've got more from President Trump from yesterday and I've got I've got a lot more audio and all kinds of.

The media and how they interfere with elections. Okay, I was going to talk about China says what China want to mention. Though New York times that they're rolling 14 day average of deads in America from Corona virus, it's down 7% are 14 day average. Case is down 18% cases. You've got to tell me like Are we testing fewer people find Mrs Moore or the same. I know. It's just I don't know what I'm supposed to do with that number. Hey, we got 100 more tests today and we have 15 more cases. So cases are up respond stupid people and all of the media stupids unfair people who haven't studied how statistics work. I apologize for my my harsh language and retracted. The US ambassador to Israel said Trump has dramatically changed Middle East foreign policy for the better. I hope so in the hope is That the U. A e ah, normalizing relations with Israel is just Ah. The first on other countries will say OK, it's OK. You can do it. It's now It's now a thing we can do. None of the countries will start doing it right right. It's a huge huge development and goes to further isolate Iran, which is Incredibly important. Absolutely there. There are days I am so glad from got elected. And I so wish you could just dial back on some of the more you know, Trumpy aspects of his trump Penis. But, you know It's like you go down that road. The pandemic is going to end one of these days and then the economy will recover. Some point is it will it. I hope But the story that is going to be with us until we're all dead and beyond is ah, China's role in the world. A zit relates to the United States. And China's view of the world going to prevail or is ours. I think it's a serious question going forward. I hope ours. We're recognizing what a threat. China is, but anyway, this guy Jimmy Lai Who runs Apple Daily. It's a a news organization in Hong Kong and was pro democracy and anti China. Hey, got arrested a couple of days ago. Which was seen as a huge move by the Chinese and that they just don't care. World opinion is about this sort of thing. I legit. Thought that might have been the last time we ever see him. Yeah, me too. Well, he's out on bail. I don't quite get what's going on here, $64,000 bail. Now. They did seize his entire net worth of $50 million. They've taken his passport, so it's not like he's you know. Going anywhere right or living a normal life. Yeah, this article here from the Global Times says it's just the way The judicial system works in Hong Kong. You get out on bail. You're you're not in any sense free. You're just not in jail while it moves toward your trial, But I'm surprised he's out at all. I don't know if that was a look. We're willing to do this. You better keep your mouth shut. It's not gonna work on Jimmy Lay as we played clips of him from 60 minutes. He's not going to shut up. No, he's a true believer. God bless him. He's he's a patriot, and he's a hero. He's actually willing to give his life for this cause. You know, we'll see what happens. I hate to turn this bitter or away from, you know the Communists, But a couple of things struck me lately. Number one, this guy who is risking everything for freedom and freedom of speech. And the contrast between him and the woke young trust afari ins who are smashing things up to prevent free speech in American cities and who pretend like they're taking great risks with their masks and everything when they know they're perfectly safe in the The lefty fathers and mothers of some of these cities have announced. We won't prosecute you. And then there were there have been a pro democracy protests in Belarus lately. There's there's essentially Communist dictators was really asserted his power in Belarus in a video came out the other day off. It was a Vater inter nine young people, men, young men and young women. Who were paraded out in front of the cameras, and they the fellas were visibly beaten. I mean, they'd been beaten. The girls just looked terrified. God knows what would happen to them or what was 13 of them. And they were on the camera saying No, I will never take part in any protest again. I'm sorry I shouldn't have done it. I won't do it again. It was absolutely horrifying and the contrast between those young people Actually risking. Awful treatment to express their their desire for freedom and the woke. People want nothing but power and control in this country. It was just it was. It was shocking in a way it was. It's beautiful that there are still people out there who reminds us how precious liberty is, and they're willing to fight and die for it. Kind of on that topic in a good lady, and we're going to tell you about simply safe here in the second is the Oregon State Police captain Timothy Fox announced yesterday. We're moving Resource is away from the federal building in Portland. Because there we arrest these people. They don't prosecute them. They let them out. There's no point I'm paraphrasing now, but where, he said. We're inclined to move resources back to counties where prosecution of criminal conduct is still a priority. Wow, So the police are actually saying what? We're not going to read. We were backing off, writes the point. We arrest people. You don't prosecute me. Let him go right now, And there's a large element of We are not going to bear the.

"So I wish to end today's episode on this story, the Chinese Communist Party have upped their game on their attack on the Hong Kong, protesters and the civil rights of the people of Hong Kong. They just ransacked. They took a couple of hundred officers and they ransacked Apple Daily News, which is one of these opposition free speech papers. In Hong Kong, it's run by journalists. And tycoon Jimmy Lai Jimmy Lai's a really cool guy. He's incredibly smart. He's running for just about every legit. Newspaper in the world I mean, he's Rynd just recently even for national review a really cool guy but he's also a staunch Hong Kong protesters and Apple News has been telling the truth about the evils of the Chinese. Communist. Party. They have spoken true and strong on this in Fort punished our recent defense law that the the CCP pushed through their pop bureau. said, it would respect free speech rights. But of course, all of us know that was complete BS and so they had a couple hundred CCP officers in the guise of a Hong Kong police and the difference doesn't really matter anymore and they went in there and they arrested a bunch of people including Jimmy Lai and activist Agnes Chow. He is quite shocking. You have these images of all these people in these blue uniforms. Frog marching Jimmy Lai out It is a really shocking image and the CCP has not stood by anything. I mean a they have taken great control the Hong Kong elections they've said WHO's allowed to run and who isn't and they stopped someone that was you know on the table for winning like Joshua and have just kicked him out completely and The things that the Hong Kong police are doing in the dark every day we don't really know most of what they're doing, but I imagine it's quite horrifying What the CPI trying to do is they're trying to shut up the people who are still fighting back against it. Now, a good portion Hong Kong. Protests is still going strong just today they are meeting. At. Trying to stand against what the CPR doing Tiktok just got banned in the US big hurt in that executive order by President. Trump hurts the company that owns Wechat, which is ten cent. All that is fantastic. More countries are becoming harsher about the that is fantastic but we also we have to recognize that the tensions are getting worse I've talked about in previous podcasts. China is preparing more more for the chance of an armed confrontation with the United States in the rest of the Western world. A, we just have to be prepared that this is something that the great powers of the world right now are preparing for. This is just part of our new reality but what happened to Jimmy Lai and Apple Daily News Josh along the rest of Agnes Chow. All of that is just grossly disgusting but easily predictable. I've told you guys time time again, I'll keep telling you the Chinese Communist Party is. evil. Is Evil. It's evil. Incarnate is just as bad as any of the great tyrannies of the past like the the Nazis. During the twenties, thirties and forties in Germany or just as bad as Stalin's Russia and the Communists I mean they will engage in all the evil things. They possibly can get their hands on they are not just happy to end their control. Their one of the things that we has pushing is that you have to bide by the free speech restrictions that the rest that China is having China doesn't say Oh people who are in China you're inside China you aren't allowed to have free speech though they're saying the rest of the world you guys aren't supposed to have it either. And I could go on and on and on this just become a rant. But I'm telling you China is stepping up its skiing. We just had a big escalation. I'm not saying the United States is escalator here because it really isn't there more reacting to what has long been stealth war by the Pete but a huge piece of news that because we are all focused on our own problems, the United States. the first US White House official just landed in Taiwan. We have not had a member of the cabinet or secretary or of any kind. Any legit big US official has been in Taiwan since one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, nine. And President Trump's sent one of his cabinet members Alex as are. So we are heading into a brave new world. So to speak between the United, states and the Chinese.

"Stir the social justice left who will make up his administration This is not something that just conservative Republicans believe fifty seven percent dependence believe this forty, nine percent Democrats believe it. This you just want start this discussion about law. So that, you know that these feelings thoughts you are having our legitimate, you're not making them up the media is just trying to guess white you like crazy and they are gasline people on all host of issues, which is the theme of today's episode. So why is Comma Harris a bad pick for Joe Biden let's not I will go into her character deficits but why in general why Kamla was a really bad idea for Joe by so So far basically Joe Biden is killing it okay five thirty eight and this is site I. They got twenty sixteen right or more right than most and they give Biden before this announcement seventy three percent chance of taking the White House. And why is this well I see it with my Democrat friends all the time people high respect but you know go blue and they believe strongly in many Americans do because the media has supported debt, the decline of Western civilization declare society that talk -sity hate we have for one another all of this is due to trump okay I. IT really is for people who are on the right. There are some never trumpers and Kinda think this but even. Though my good never-trumper friends understand that trump is a symptom of the decline of our society, he is not a cause of it. He might be a negative feedback loop in some regards, but he isn't he didn't cause the US to start to try to tear each other apart this kind of cold civil war we are already in as I've talked about several episodes back go check that one out if you WanNa know more about this concept and idea. But people who are on the left. They honestly believe that the hate is coming from a single man in White, house? Maybe they'll extend that to the Republicans at large or the conservative culture at large or even brain Christians or whatever. But generally, your mainland normally Democrat is very likely to believe that trump is the cause of the dysfunction in our society today and D- Joe. Biden. To them is a return to normalcy. This goes back to the the the old famous campaign after woodrow, Wilson and then again after FDR, the candidate Stan say we're going back to normalcy baby You know we get harding why love and then Coolidge who's like my favorite president of the twenty th century they won because they said okay. So you guys thought everything was craze the. This president did X. and now we're gonNA bring us all back to normal classic example you guys might be familiar with this Truman and especially President Ike and there's this move by the Republicans that they pass constitutional amendment to make sure that people can't go beyond two terms. There's a great. Cultural and economic renewal. We are America going back to our foundations. Everything's could be peachy Nice were out of the Great Depression. Everything that was bad is now good people generally speaking what that I mean we as humans we all know we all want to go where the grass is greener. That's that's human nature and With your culture, your tribe or whatever believes that candidate X. or Y. is the reason for the problems going on right now, you want to get rid of him. And so to the Democrats Joe. By to people who are on the left, they felt that yeah. Job By might be he's not maybe not progressive or woken up, but he will get rid of the trump guy and really that's the number one priority. I you know I, have my I of very big issues with trump didn't vote for him very likely not to vote for him again this time. So I understand this feeling that we have to get the big orange band out of the office and that way we can return the country back to normal, and so the people who are with the Biden campaign the this was even true at the end of the days when it was, you know just Democrat primary was we're GonNa make Joe Biden as inoffensive as vanilla as milk toast as a flavourless pancake as we possibly can. Okay, we want no one and they see In to be offended by him that we don't want people to feel anger with on a see him. He's like up he's like a wall. He's just like your normal white office building wall at you have no feelings whatsoever and that's okay because our thing is working for the trump and we don't want to give people reasons to not go for not getting rid that trump now people are saying well, Hey. This is a very ethical. You're not putting your guy out there. He's not debating on the full ideas and the matters and he's she's not being front and center as during Normal Merican Campaign We do at least since Kennedy okay with the tea with a television and your cat, it's being front and center. You had the bay primaries the whole nine. That's how American politics has been I seventy some years. Joe Biden is actually in many ways to return to pre Kennedy politics where we're almost, you know you're doing the front porch and so every port shows and even in states like Georgia, Biden has a fighting chance to take this state and while it's technically battleground state, the way things have been lately you would think Georgia would be something that president trump could easily get but that's not the case. The polls are showing that trump is down three, four, six points routinely. Biden. Is Just creaming. The big orange ban currently, he's just just owning the field. And this the strategy, whatever we want to call the front porch strategy call at the the milk toe strategy is working. It's a really smart thing in our day and age of. Social. Media politics by not having something you can get offended about not having something to gain attention on I. Mean that is actually pretty smart because if you have a big enough base and you and there's this one guy pulled pulled pulsing out all this negative stuff. This is a smart way to win an election. Now I, get people could say this is unethical. I mean the there's a very good chance at least under the old this this model on talking about the President Biden would go to the debates because if it's the strategy. this is why and I hope my friends who Democrats care about. Picking of the P like Comma Harris wasn't strategically wise whatever you think of her policies envious. Okay. Because Kamala Harris is a very polarizing figure she similar to trump in this way she's she's open about her her feelings matter. She's not she's not afraid to kind of go way out there now often she goes way out there and she tried to pull back but she went out there You know there are some times in her primary, not dissimilar to trump where she was on both sides of an issue you know I, she was four Medicare for all she was against it than she was back in the middle She is her history has shown that she's someone that is very passionate and very aggressive to to get what she wants is an advantage is a person if you're trying to get through politics, Machiavelli would approve however in American politics. The way we view politicians normally, it is kind of character flaw and then you look at actual her policy issues, things that she is come up very strong on when it comes to executive orders to put it in full gun control when it comes to Private health insurance which she walked back on but I mean, she still was willing to say this out in debates. Those clips are still around I'm sure the the GOP with the people are putting together these TV ads are just. Really happy to be able to grab that clip back. where it was when it comes to her views on fracking, she still is an full on anti fracking ban which whatever your views on it. In I I, the science shows that fracking is really where we're getting most of our our push against global warming the the reason why the US right now is a leader in putting out less carbon emissions is due to fracking. Now, there's an argument to say it may be too violent fracking happens. It's not a good idea but. This is a debate you need to have for sure but in Pennsylvania. Saying you're anti fracking is that's just a great way. To lose that state and that's a very important swing state She has been on incredibly strong on the environmental issues. She was willing she tried to put the Exxon oil exacts into prison for while, I mean when she was at, she was one of these people that. Didn't really want to do the work of being a tough on crime person I'm I'm GONNA clean the city up kind of like Rudy. Giuliani. In the late eighties, early nineties. But she put out the appearance of it and what she did was she basically she she went after people for example, who had used marijuana she put over two thousand people just with marijuana use. That's all they did nothing else and got them into prison and she if she was tough on. Parents of truant kids and this was a big push that she had. I mean we could go on here. You talked to the innocence project people. And? I'll give you an example. Here's a good one joe. Rogan, just talked to big officials. One of them was a founder. Another was New Basser instance project and they talk about Kamla Harrison and to them did the innocence project is firmly a creature of the left and they're like look we're going to be going Biden no matter what because anything anything not trump is better than trump they said clearly that Tom La- Harris is the worst picture buying could make because she was someone that in this is the from that Tulsi Gabbard clip I showed you. In my monologue, a tech at one of these labs, these crime lapse that California law enforcement uses had been found that they were cheating they were making up false tests were stealing drugs, they were they were doing things that are endangering clean evidence to be used for prosecutions, and there are people that were sitting in prison right then and people who are right down in the middle of a in court and you're the Aga. California received this information by law you have to let the defense no, you have to give this information to the public. She withheld that she did not share that. Comma Harris at to the to the criminal justice reform activists is just just an example of the worst kind of law and order prosecutor because Kamala Harris and there have been people that have looked at when she comes in does she have an impact on the crimewave to do the stats, go down and generally speaking most the experts have looked to this? WHO said no because her her efforts were big loud ones but again, really do anything occur tail. Firmly against the drug war. So I guess that probably means that Kamala Harris is someone they probably wouldn't like already but. She has made it so that she has made the the criminal justice activists mad because she went after she kept people falsely in prison. She withheld evidence she went after people in the drug. War. At the same time she's not really a friend to the right because again her efforts were largely. Skin Deep I. Mean they were they were skin deep and then worst kind of way. But there. They were largely ineffective as so when you look at a record as a prosecutor, it's like you're not doing enough to make the people who are like hard on pushing law and order. Happy. But you're doing too much that you're making the people who are crime reformers unhappy. and. She is just a polarizing figure even when you go to her time delay. Her time as a Senator Comma Harris. As soon as she became a senator was very clear that her goal was to advance her political career, and so she would always be front and center to be the loudest in the front, saying the strongest things about whatever subject was in front of her. So she's in she's in the committee and they'll bring in people from ice and then she'll go on this tired about this ice agents say that you're just like the K. k. k. and I mean like really loud and Boisterous, and while I'm sure there are people on the left who you know maybe fifteen percent maybe at most thirty percent of country to this is awesome. Most people special than armies that don't pay attention to politics just kind of want things return normal. They hear that they're like wait what. What they? I think that's a little extreme. Maybe already said this health insurance where she saying we have to get rid of prey to health insurance for everyone and push medicare for all while you put them on the normies like wait what. She was bold front and center when he came to the Brad Kavanagh Situation and when people point to where people went too far when the are going after Cavanaugh sometimes to the point where they are putting their case. To Stop counting on you know if you go if you lean over too far and you use things are too far away from provable evidence, it actually weakens your case Kamala. Harris was one of these people that was actually doing damage to the cause of trying to prevent cavanaugh from making it in. She has not done things really to make friends Eh even Chris Dodd and this was from I wanna Say New York Times I could've been wrong maybe it was Wall Street drug. Chris Dodd said in the interview K. This very long time very influential Democrat senator. He said that he was very concerned about her that she seems to be someone that does plays politics has a game and there was anonymous report that politico put out where he said we interviewed over four dozen Democrats officials in politics. And there was a strong reluctance for many of them about having Kamla Harris as the VP for precisely the reasons I listed she is not really a team player Okay Kamla Harrah's isn't known for boosting other people in politics. She has very strong and open and boisterous on. These are two values that in campaign politics while look great on television I mean the Ao see kind of style of politics. I'm sure we can find someone on the right maybe a Josh Holly on the right He's kind of like this to. The looks great on Fox News or MSNBC is just awful to work with when you're trying to win elections generally speaking and. She is just not someone that fits well at all with the campaign strategy, they had used previous to this. Tuesday. She just wasn't a good fit. To the idea of I'm Joe Biden I'm milk toast I'm vanilla. I'm your old pal. You know me all your life I've I've been front and Center for decades. I'm safe Joe. Biden. You don't like trump. I'm safe vote for me. A Hairs Camara's. Say What you want about. Her is now known as big safe. She's known as being vicious aggressive strong These are these are pronounced to describe her as so before you ever get to the issues that you know I personally am concerned if she got into the Oval Office, you just have to recognize that she could be. A detriment. To the campaign to the strategies now. I could be wrong. I mean I don't think I'm wrong in that the math sense but you know it's a long way from here November even though it's only a few short months. And anything can happen the media is going to carry water. Who the VP was picked on, that can cover up a Lotta sins, and of course, as has always been the case with are the big orange man. He will find ways to shoot himself in the foot. I mean he will find ways destroy the campaign efforts of his people and that by the way that last bit about trump that is in my opinion that's fact we have evidence of story after story after story when he says things, they're just wrong or they come off as being in the worst possible light you could frame it it doesn't help him. And you know if president trump continues with the strategy that he's been stewing. Comma Harris being a firebrand. That is going to be too much of a problem just by itself. So what is the advantage to choosing a Kamala Harris what you get for choosing her as a can't well for number one and this is my best guess There are a lot of insiders that were already pushing her forward. They're happy with Joe Biden kind of put himself into a corner when he said He. Said across to debates. One Obey said, he would choose an African American and other debate said, he would choose a woman kind of ended up. Now you have an African American woman and that's five percent of the population of the US Kaz African Americans make about ten percent. Then you have to choose someone that's enough in politics has a name recognition, Comma Harris's kind of on a very on shortlist. And you know the other ones they go up against you you have people like a Karen Bass, who has the the head of the Congressional Black Caucus. And she she was probably the best next pick. Likely to be picked on their shortlist, but she has some history where she worked with frontline communists, which is a a Cuban. Group. With the Castro regime in Cuba. So that would have been a very bad idea and I get the feeling that Tulsi, she's not African American but Tolsey kind of on the outs right now and so. You know best chance you choose someone that you think some people are in the in Saragan alike, and you're going to pick someone that has name recognition. Here you go what I can't prove but this is my guess is that they chose Comma Harris because they are getting some internal polling right now. Big, campaign operations even smaller ones they do what they can to get idea of what the populace thinks at any point about any issue and their campaign. So they have internal polling they pay for and my guest here is that what we've seen with the the George Floyd protests that. into the never ending summer riots that Gel really badly with a borderline Democrat try sometimes trump sometimes obama voter. That they need to get these people back on track and so they need to pick someone that might say, Hey, we're for law and order to. and that's why they chose Kamala Harris. Hey look. We have this very tough prosecutor. She was so tough. She withheld evidence for people who are Riley convicted. Okay. They won't say that. So there there I tried to frame it as best I could things coming from the political side more from centre-left as they understand, of course of my own biases in there in the mix for the Republicans, the general impression I'm getting from following twitter. Other social media, and reading all the news is Republican special people after work for the trump campaign are pretty happy right now, they are smiles and glee and salivating at the chance to make the ads against the Biden harassed ticket on president trump even said as much. He said shoe was number woodham shortlist I was rooting for her and. If you're a trump began see why she has one heck of a record and she of course being a candidate out there in front of the TV for so long there a lot of material to us. And when you have people who are saying, this is what the general public beliefs that there's a very good chance. Buying is not gonNA make the full four years and you're effectively going to be voting for her to be President Dwight. That that that is not a hard pitch to make. and. So there are many Republicans. who were just like jumping for joy right now they're like. We are in the dumps, buying his killing us the president doesn't help us with these things. All my gosh. They just chose Comma layers. And I saw the reaction over and over and over again are Republicans right in their enthusiasm for the choice by for his vp they might, as the reasons I late here she's a very polarizing figure. She has kind of a shady record at parts at least enough use it as a wedge issue. She is someone that is going to galvanize people who are never trumpers in. Maybe trumpers sometimes trumpers people who are going to be like I sometimes right for the bulwark. And I didn't vote for trump last time but you got the Democrats you pick someone bad enough I just might do it I've had these thoughts even myself because you're thinking well, you take someone that has literally said that if you know Congress, doesn't do what I want. I'm just GONNA, push it through and see when when on the debate stage and the Third Democrat. Debate Joe Binds it's unconstitutional. She makes fun of Joe Biden for that you're like, do we want someone like that in the Oval Office necessarily even from my crock paint activists side and white she is really bad when it comes drug work to we need and other drug warriors president for those reasons, I am very much hoping she does not win but the question is do Americans even care about. Some of those things, this is kind of thing don't think Republicans are getting. There's this belief in the silent trump voter. It's called a concept silent trump voter, which is this idea. There is the set of the silent majority that will come up for trump, but they won't Sich show their support for trump nine even in anonymous polls or surveys. And Being honest I as far as I can understand it. I don't believe this is true to such a significant degree that it's going to turn the election in twenty twenty and as we just saw president trump did what President Obama did you know I have a pen and a phone congress? You don't do what I want to. Here's DACA. President trump just last week. He didn't get what he wanted in a debate two-week debate with the Democrat House. Sorry Democrat controlled House and he just did his own little executive order and there.

"Of Her name and people get this wrong all the time to make it easier for the on C.. Don't get called out as being a hater. It's pronounced Comma Law Harris. So what does the American public think of Miss Harris? Well, let's look at some stats a stack him out Monday about the view of the American public especially Democrats of Joe, Biden as being a nominee for president in the White House the report. Came from Rasmussen. It was a national telephone and online survey that found that fifty nine, percent fifty, nine percent of all likely voters believe it is extremely likely that Biden's running will be president before the end of Biden four year term. This general thought for the American public doesn't stop with Republicans and independents who lean this way forty, nine percent of Democrats according to the survey believe that whoever is the VP pick will? Likely become the president during Biden's first term I bring this up because this is a very important fact you going to be gas all the way till. November, and beyond if you say that Joe Biden isn't quite there that he's frail, he's elderly he talks like dementia patient sometimes, and the evidence is there over and over even political with the announcement of Kamala Harris referred to her as quote Biden's living will unquote so. Everyone knows we all see it Joe Biden is falling apart. The man is not quite there and I feel for him I really do I have a family member that I love dearly, that is struggling with some of these issues. It's hard to watch. It is hard. It's painful when someone loses their cognitive when they go into cognitive decline, it is painful and sad horrible things. So I don't take any joy out of Biden's decline. It is happening and so all of you guys out there who say well I see it but maybe it's just me because the media tells me this isn't happening. They bring on these sites colleges. He's experts say it's not happening. So I must be wrong. And I want to tell you. You're correct. They're lying to you you biden is in the decline physically mentally he just doesn't seem all of their. He seems like an empty suit for whoever's going to be the VP and the the woke stir the social justice left who will make up his administration This is not something that just conservative Republicans believe fifty seven percent dependence believe this forty, nine percent Democrats believe it. This you just want start this discussion about law. So that, you know that these feelings thoughts you are having our legitimate, you're not making them up the media is just trying to guess white you like crazy and they are gasline people on all host of issues, which is the theme of today's episode. So why is Comma Harris a bad pick for Joe Biden let's not I will go into her character deficits but why in general why Kamla was a really bad idea for Joe by so So far basically Joe Biden is killing it okay five thirty eight and this is site I. They got twenty sixteen right or more right than most and they give Biden before this announcement seventy three percent chance of taking the White House. And why is this well I see it with my Democrat friends all the time people high respect but you know go blue and they believe strongly in many Americans do because the media has supported debt, the decline of Western civilization declare society that talk -sity hate we have for one another all of this is due to trump okay I. IT really is for people who are on the right. There are some never trumpers and Kinda think this but even. Though my good never-trumper friends understand that trump is a symptom of the decline of our society, he is not a cause of it. He might be a negative feedback loop in some regards, but he isn't he didn't cause the US to start to try to tear each other apart this kind of cold civil war we are already in as I've talked about several episodes back go check that one out if you WanNa know more about this concept and idea. But people who are on the left. They honestly believe that the hate is coming from a single man in White, house? Maybe they'll extend that to the Republicans at large or the conservative culture at large or even brain Christians or whatever. But generally, your mainland normally Democrat is very likely to believe that trump is the cause of the dysfunction in our society today and D- Joe. Biden. To them is a return to normalcy. This goes back to the the the old famous campaign after woodrow, Wilson and then again after FDR, the candidate Stan say we're going back to normalcy baby You know we get harding why love and then Coolidge who's like my favorite president of the twenty th century they won because they said okay. So you guys thought everything was craze the. This president did X. and now we're gonNA bring us all back to normal classic example you guys might be familiar with this Truman and especially President Ike and there's this move by the Republicans that they pass constitutional amendment to make sure that people can't go beyond two terms. There's a great. Cultural and economic renewal. We are America going back to our foundations. Everything's could be peachy Nice were out of the Great Depression. Everything that was bad is now good people generally speaking what that I mean we as humans we all know we all want to go where the grass is greener. That's that's human nature and With your culture, your tribe or whatever believes that candidate X. or Y. is the reason for the problems going on right now, you want to get rid of him. And so to the Democrats Joe. By to people who are on the left, they felt that yeah. Job By might be he's not maybe not progressive or woken up, but he will get rid of the trump guy and really that's the number one priority. I you know I, have my I of very big issues with trump didn't vote for him very likely not to vote for him again this time. So I understand this feeling that we have to get the big orange band out of the office and that way we can return the country back to normal, and so the people who are with the Biden campaign the this was even true at the end of the days when it was, you know just Democrat primary was we're GonNa make Joe Biden as inoffensive as vanilla as milk toast as a flavourless pancake as we possibly can. Okay, we want no one and they see In to be offended by him that we don't want people to feel anger with on a see him. He's like up he's like a wall. He's just like your normal white office building wall at you have no feelings whatsoever and that's okay because our thing is working for the trump and we don't want to give people reasons to not go for not getting rid that trump now people are saying well, Hey. This is a very ethical. You're not putting your guy out there. He's not debating on the full ideas and the matters and he's she's not being front and center as during Normal Merican Campaign We do at least since Kennedy okay with the tea with a television and your cat, it's being front and center. You had the bay primaries the whole nine. That's how American politics has been I seventy some years. Joe Biden is actually in many ways to return to pre Kennedy politics where we're almost, you know you're doing the front porch and so every port shows and even in states like Georgia, Biden has a fighting chance to take this state and while it's technically battleground state, the way things have been lately you would think Georgia would be something that president trump could easily get but that's not the case. The polls are showing that trump is down three, four, six points routinely. Biden. Is Just creaming..
