"To politics weekly. extra. I'm joanie grieve in for jonathan freedland. It's been fifty years since national security advisor. Henry kissinger made a secret trip to the people's republic of china in july nineteen seventy-one coming amid the backdrop of the cold war in the us imagination. China was red china and to the chinese. The americans were devils. So kissinger's trip marked a massive turning point in twentieth century. History there can be no stable and enduring peace without the participation of the people's republic of china and it's seven hundred and fifty million people less than a year later. President nixon himself traveled to china to meet with chairman mao. After more than two decades of no contact this was the beginning of what would become one of the world's most important and fraught bilateral relationships in the united states interest that china continues on the path of success Because we believe that a peaceful and stable and prosperous china is not only good for chinese but also good for the world and for the united states john. Young jaw is chinese american writer and journalist who grew up in beijing during the one thousand. Nine hundred seventy s. She was eleven. When the announcement came the president. Nixon would come to visit by the time nixon actually visited. I was twelve but even for someone my age. I think you had a vague sense that this was something of a watershed is going to be attorney point of some sort though i clearly. Couldn't you know grasp the real implication of it. But i think all of hanna sense. This is a beginning of something. Nearly a decade after the visit jinyan was one of the first chinese students to be allowed to study in the us on a special scholarship. Kissinger nixon's visit was absolutely critical event in my life but the lives of my generation in china. I wouldn't be alone to say that. This changed my life but despite the hopes that stemmed from that first kissinger trip to china in nineteen seventy-one this was not to be the start of beautiful friendship but rather the beginning of a pretty rocky relationship with former president donald trump and the coronavirus pandemic escalating an already fracturing. We must hold accountable. The nation which unleashed this plague onto the world. China with president biden now at the helm and the chinese economy predicted to overtake the us. In just a few years. How have relations between the two nations changed since kissinger's visit in nineteen seventy one. And what is the future of these.

"Weekly extra. I'm joanie grieve in for jonathan freedland. One of the biggest decisions that then presidential candidate joe biden needed to make during the campaign last year was who he would pick to be his second in command. His vice president knows how to govern. She knows how to make the hard calls. Last summer. biden. Announced that kamla harris the california senator would be his running mate that i will support it still in her. Fifties harris represents a younger generation of leaders and picking the first black and south asian american woman to ever take such a role biding was hoping in part to appeal to a wider swath of the electorate but since taking the oath of office in january harris's rarely been in the spotlight. Save for drawing the ire of some democrats and all republicans who are not particularly happy with her response to two of the issues. She has been tasked with voting rights and the migrant crisis on the southern border. Be clear to folks in this region for thinking about making that dangerous trek.

"First up today. A story that broke right after Friday's show all seven Democrat scheduled to appear at this Thursday's debate said they would boycott it due to a labor dispute. That means there might not be Thursday debate unless the situation is resolved resolved promptly reading from a story by Z.. Shan Aleem in. Vox Quote Senator Elizabeth. Warren declared that she was willing to boycott next week's democratic debate at Loyola Marymount University in California in solidarity with campus workers who are picketing for better pay and healthcare. She immediately set off a domino effect. That would eventually Ashley See. Every other Democratic presidential candidate who qualified for the debate make the same pledge unite here local eleven a union that represents one hundred fifty cooks dishwashers cashiers and servers on. LMU's campus who are employed by the Food Service Company. Sadako plans to pick it at the debate next Thursday to express their disapproval of his handling of negotiations with the Union and quote. So the way this happened was Warren tweeted on Friday. Just just after noon saying she would not Cross Union picket lines. The domino effect played out quickly with the remaining candidates tweeting that they too would not cross the picket lines. He's here is the order in which they jumped in Warren I than Sanders Young Biden Steer Buddha judge and club. HR This it's all happened over the span of about five hours one note on club. Hr is that she was actually speaking at a Labor event when the news broke and she said at that event that she would not cross cross the picket line but her tweet didn't come out until a little bit later this all. Obviously it causes an immediate problem for the various entities organizing the debate it has governed by the DNC but sponsored by PBS news. Hour and politico. They had already moved. This debate once stood who he different labor dispute at Ucla and with just days days to go the most obvious way to resolve the issue would be for the Union and snack so to agree on a contract but it is unclear how the DNC and to media outlets outlets can make a labor contract. Happen all right. So what exactly is the labor dispute about well. The Union unite here local eleven represents represents service workers at Loyola Marymount University in a press release. They described their members as quote. Cooks dishwashers cashiers and servers. Who to prepare and serve meals for? LMU Students Faculty and Staff LMU subcontracts.

They're asking for better wages and better healthcare and claims that Sadako broke off negotiations recently sued exo denies that they broke it off reading once more from vox quote sick. So is one hundred percent committed to reaching an agreement and any statement that we have left. The bargaining table is not accurate so spokesperson told Vox and quote meanwhile the DNC released a statement of its own late on Friday it read in part quote the DNC and LMU learned to this issue earlier today and it is our understanding that this matter arose within the last day while Lmu is not a party to the negotiations between Sadako and unite here local eleven. Tom Perez would absolutely not cross a picket line. Had would never expect our candidates to either end quote by the way Tom Perez Chair of the DNC so they also suggested they were looking for a way forward with Thursday's debate while the the method for doing that isn't entirely clear. One reporter had a suggestion on Friday in New York magazine's intelligencer at Kilgore road quote you'd think the DNC NC or the media sponsors of the Los Angeles event PBS. Newshour and politico could have vetted the venues a bit more thoroughly and avoided this embarrassing situation and fortunately they have six days to find a third spot barring a quick resolution of the unite here slash X.. Oh dispute to make sure they don't screw it up again. I would recommend a union hall end quote and now the impeachment news in three minutes or less over the weekend. Both parties released competing reports on the details of the impeachment inquiry reading for Medical Joanie grieve and the Guardian quote in the six hundred fifty eight page report. Democrats on the Judiciary Committee accused trump of committing constitutional and and criminal bribery by trying to press Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and the twenty six election. As the country's military aid was held up applying the constitutional definition of bribery. Here there can be little doubt that it is satisfied the report reads president trump's elicited presidents Alinsky for a favor of great personal value to him. He did so corruptly and he did so an esteemed influence his own official actions respecting the release of military military and security assistance. And the offer of a White House meeting. Although president. Trump's actions need not rise to the level of a criminal violation to justify impeachment impeachment. His conduct here was criminal. Republicans on the Judiciary Committee wrote it. A sent to the report arguing. Their Democratic counterparts had committed a grave. Steve misstep that could jeopardize future presidencies the starkly different perspectives on trump's actions toward Ukraine likely foreshadow the Wednesday impeachment vote vote which is expected to fall almost entirely along party lines and quote and this brings us to Wednesday which is when the house is scheduled to vote on the articles of impeachment went various members of the house have publicly stated how they intend to vote one notable announcement came from Democratic Representative. Jeff Van drew of New Jersey Second District. He criticized Democrats handling of the impeachment inquiry and signaled that he would join the Republican party within a week. Six of his staffers resigned. Zayn over this past weekend in protest. The Washington Post actually published portions of a letter in which those staffers explained why they relieving and meanwhile in the Senate Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wrote his own letter. Schumer's letter is the beginning of negotiations. About how the Senate impeachment trial might work. He asked for four witnesses. Mrs Including Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick. Mulvaney plus former National Security Adviser John Bolton neither of them has testified before he also wants the hearing. Going to start on January ninth while Schumer doesn't have much power in this negotiation. At least he's expressing what he wants. Schumer is signaling that he is open to to a trial that includes witnesses and that matches up with what we've heard from President Trump and Republicans including Senator Ted Cruz. Who Want to call witnesses? So while we don't have a timeline or precise format ironed out from that Senate trial yet. Those are presumably coming soon and finally today I have not read these six hundred page report released by Democrats. If you care for some light reading there is a link to that in the show notes.

Van Andrew has announced his party switch that causes a shakeup. In New Jersey Politics van drew had previously endorsed Senator Cory Booker's presidential run. While I haven't seen in an official retraction of that endorsement. That might be coming after booker decided to tweet today. Booker wrote quote Jeff. Van Drew has put his reelection in prospects ahead of his duty at a time of crisis in our country. Let's bring courageous. Leadership Back to New Jersey second district please donate to support his eventual eventual Democratic challenger and quote he then linked directly to a fund accepting donations for democratic opponents of Van drew. He also included Vandross. Bruce official twitter handle in his tweet. So I checked out the Andrews twitter account the last time he tweeted was back in March when he sent a message in support of national dentist's Day to Van Rouge credit. He does not seem to be on twitter very much and that would probably be a lesson for all of us. Meanwhile the call for a Democrat to to replace van drew might not work anyway. His district went for trump in two thousand sixteen and the Cook Political Report previously listed that district as a tossup now. They've moved it to lean Republican and that Republican might not be Andrew Reading from an article by Adam K Raymond New York magazine's intelligencer quote his decision to join the. GOP comes after an internal campaign. Poll showed seventy one percent of Democratic primary voters. I would oppose him if he voted against impeachment switching parties might leave Andrews only hope of keeping his job but even that is no guarantee there are already three Republicans who have filed to run for Congress in his district next year including one who says he is willing to put one million in dollars of his own money into his campaign to defeat van drew and quote..
