"Okay scott wins and fails danon. What do you have anything. i don't die. Don't they don't have any wizar- fails i think. I think i was glad. Facebook made its decision. I think as usual it was qualified. So i guess i'll give them a win for finally doing the right thing that everyone else has been suggesting forever so i guess that's kind of a win. What's it called like. That commentator is that commentators glad that they did it but that commentator also thinks what the fuck took so long That's what i wouldn't. I would say so. My win is Global cooperation or super powers a species. i'm real excited about this g seven tax treaty My fail is i think one of the signals of atop or win economy comes vulnerable to a crash versus a correction is really poor corporate governance. And you see how it happens when everyone's partying and everyone's making money and when at the same time you couple that with our we diminish our institutions under sec doj and this gross idolatry of innovators. We lead to Company's totally disregarding corporate governance and i think you see it around mark manipulation from ulan moss. It's happening everywhere. Company called coin base has to insiders not independent directors now on its audit committee and the audit committee. If you're on a board there's always a dude in his sixties who thinks he understands business and pontificates and you have to remind a. You're just here because you're in a partner accounting firm in your the audit of our. You're the chairman of the audit committee and that person plays a really important role because their job is to be the source of truth and go. No we're not going to give into temptation to juice the stock and start double-counting revenues. There's all kinds of games. shenanigans. You can play. In terms of what. The audit committee approves or doesn't approve. In terms of how affirm accounts for reports its earnings so under armor was found pulling revenues ford because they want the stock across the cheesecake factory by the way all this a wonderful article by linette lopez from the business insider cheesecake. Factory was basically flooding their numbers. And you're seeing you see. This is just being set up everywhere. Coin base has to insiders on their audit committee. That is totally not cool. Why because they're lockup so are they going to be sober and detroit about releasing accurate information. Are they gonna wait. 'til they're lockups over and they've sold their stock. Yeah you have tear check this shit out ocalan tier check this shit out. The had talents here is taking shareholder money and investing tens of millions of dollars in back in exchange for that company signing a long term contract with that money with jalan tier. And you think well what's wrong with that. That's an innovative way to finance customers. What's wrong with that is shareholders pailin. Here don't eat. Pollen tear buying for them. They can do that on their own. And what that does that creates related party transactions which were everywhere nineteen ninety nine it says paletta is not able after seventeen years as a company never turned a profit to grow its revenues organically just based on the value of its product. It's gotta lend people money by the way spac salote spectrum won't be around and so it creates is related party transactions that would stick. It's real you don't have a correction. You had a crash. Yeah so poor. Corporate governance all these financial engineering. What it does is it sets up an economy such that when things get ugly they got really ugly really fast and i do think that the corporate governance here is indicative of a top where we've decided well as long as the lights. Don't come on as long as the music's good we're going to ignore that. There's someone convulsing in the men's room where i got that. Anyways that was i guess i it's called the tuesday night at trillionaire house So i i think there's a lot of poor governance here at these companies. And i think the sec. Do we need guardrails. I think it's out of control. I mean it. My census michael milkin went to jail for less than what a lot of. This is going on here so and it. It indicates in addition to all the ratios. We look at whether it's the multi want earnings the percentage of gdp controlled by private About the stock market all these things are reminiscent of two thousand and eight hundred. Ninety nine is really poor. Corporate governance where companies are not acting fiduciaries such that they can keep their stock high until they get out. That's my that is excellent fail. I would agree with that. This is not a new issue but it sort of becomes. I think the levels of our temperature just like the planet get raised and raised and we adapt to them and just with john was talking about is the the constant horrify. -cation that these people bring to the table. Just makes you feel like okay. They're doing that now okay. They're doing that now. And you get really you get numb to it. I mean one of the things that happens is the as they raise the stakes. You becomes more normal to be thinking in crazy ways and therefore marjorie taylor. Green gets elected right now. I wanna here's the fail. I think twenty two people running for congress believed the election. Li- like have like a running on xtra was stolen. Like why would you run for office. If you think elections are stolen and of course the minute they get elected they would they. Those elections will not be stolen but It's really it. You can't tolerate what these kind of things you absolutely cannot tolerate this kind of stuff When you're when you're looking at it because it does as as as there's a really good new york times about the actual impact of donald trump's when trump was banned on social media. Well it did. Lower the temperature quite a bit. He's still you know. They have in october twentieth statements without half a million total leg. So we'd make a statement and they get lots of fifty three thousand shares on facebook or two hundred and forty eight thousand likes and re tweets if he said something crazy but now in march two thousand twenty one statement has has close to the same in other places because they've got donald trump fan page breitbart fox news. I love my freedom. There's one call jenna. Ls for like it doesn't stop proliferating just because the main source of the disease is gone and they they quote their statements. You know what. I mean they quote. There's whether it's newsmax or fox and friends or whatever it is and then people who are against him quote them to and and make world around so so. That's i think you're right. I think you're right that we can be. This is a really big topic and is it important. one in. it's quite doing this week. Cara this week. I am I don't know things. I'm podcast in. I'm doing all kinds of stuff. And i will be working on the co conference. I got you someone. I'm not gonna tell you who it is good. I'm not gonna tell you here. We're not gonna announce it yet but because it's not done done but someone you wanted interview and i go. What does that mean. I got someone that you wanted to interview for you. What barbara eden barbara eden. Yes you angrier. Grants pam isn't finally. I know pam grier by the way roy. Yes i do. She was on the lovely lovely person. She was a lovely prison. So i didn't know very well just met briefly In any case we will be. We'll be back on thursday. 'cause there's going to be a lot more news. Newsy week apple just add. It's had its big event when you talk about that a little bit more and we can go from there. It's a lot of small things but there's a ton of stuff they do. That was sort of innovative. And yet they're still involved in all kinds of regulatory problems in cases. anyway scott. that's the. It is a very hefty show. We'll be back on friday for more go to n. y. Dot com slash pivot to submit your question for the pivot. Podcasts link is also in our show notes scott. Can you read us out today. Show is produced by rebecca.

"An agency of of of certain individuals and thomas paine wanted to publish commonsense his barrier to entry was just a very minimal one. He went and found founder printer and published it and it went out And so i can't think of a president who the only thing i think of is there are there have been moments where networks have said. We don't really see why this deserves prime time. But if a president summoned day the press conference they'd have to come so. I think it is unprecedented. But i would argue that. With the exception of andrew johnson And some of his actions during reconstruction trump is unprecedent so we shouldn't be surprised that a an actively undermining force to the institutions of a free in popular government in that strum would face some consequences in that sphere. Scott john john. A nice mitchum of handiwork when as a historian when you observe president biden's tenure so far what other presidents does he remind you of. What does that say. Possibly about the ways to govern a great question. I should say that he's he's a friend of mine I'm proud of that and I do help out occasionally on a volunteer basis. So i know policy influence. whatever But i do help with some speeches up from time to time. So all that said this is like nineteen thirty three in some ways because of the scope and scale of the crisis that he stepped in to have to deal with The divisions in the country are as profound as the ones that lbj stepped in doubt after dallas and sixty three and nixon and sixty not. Skip over that one. It's interesting as an analogy but nineteen sixty eight was such a cataclysmic here. you know. Forty seven americans on average died every day in vietnam not captured not wounded by forty seven day. Dr king senator kennedy chicago convention and the fact that george wallace on election day nineteen sixty eight carried. Thirteen point five percent of the popular vote and five states. So that was you know. Nixon was not coming into a a a circle where we all singing coon by Here's the fearsome the fearful answer the troubling answer to your question to me. This increasingly feels as though we're living in eighteen fifties america where you have a minority of the country in this case the republican party in that case southern slaveholding interest driven by in arizona. Crecy of economic power Structural advantages within the constitution itself and a self created theological and philosophical doctrine of justification. For the course they wanted to persist. Now what's troubling about that. So that makes by lincoln right. What's troubling about that. Is abraham lincoln and we sort of skip over this sometimes and when we're talking about it lincoln didn't solve our problems in a vacuum seven hundred and fifty thousand people died from eighteen. Sixty one eighteen sixty five in order to create the country that at least is continues to be worse defending so i'm not predicting civil war but the divisions feel i want to be very clear this is not a both sides that it's the republican party that has gone off the rails. The democratic party could go off the rails by this afternoon but they haven't yet. They are having a coherent conversation about the relative role of private enterprise and the public sector a coherent conversation about the role of the state. You can disagree with that. I disagree with a lot of it. But it's a conversation that would be recognizable to franklin roosevelt and ronald reagan. The conversation that it. Which is i really a conversation. But the this passionate elemental argument about the will to power that. The republican party is having is not part of that coherent conversation. Can i ask you a question. What what what fuels it is it. Just trump or is it the social media the polarization. It sells podcast centers on american cultural polarization. Which is not a new thing. It's not a listen. There's been so much polarization if you go back at every period so where does that come from now. And how do you come back. Because i think these social media platforms have become the feel of that or at least partially or it's one of the one of it certainly certainly part of the infrastructure polars action right. There's there's no doubt about that Did it exacerbate existing divisions i would. Yes my argument. That i make in the in the podcast and this is just my opinion. Is that one way to understanding trump as part of a coherent if troubling american narrative is pretty straightforward. He's george wallace. He strummed thurman. You know he's pat buchanan navy huey long of so. He's a populist figure. So if this is just about trump that's one conversation and a coherent one and joe mccarthy right joe mccarthy had become president nineteen fifty-six that's what that's what was so. That's that's a coherent sort of almost straightforward conversation. What i've come to see. And i wrote a book about this three years ago What is different today. Is that one of the two parties that we depend on to create a politics about the mediation of difference. The conciliation for a given period of time of conflicting interests is no longer a coherent good-faith actor within that system and that is a difference of kind not degree. And so my argument in this in this podcast was why is that. So why was the republican party so very to this tako to this Manifestation of itself. And i think part of it has to do with conservative. Americans.

"He is a distinguished visiting professor at vanderbilt university. A contributing writer for the new york times book review and a fellow of the society of american historians. He is also. The host of the podcasts hoped through history and it was said and now he's out with a new five part documentary. Podcast called fate of fact. Jon meacham welcome back to the show. Thank you very much well. John adams famously said facts are stubborn things but you argue on your show that they're not stubborn as they used to be. And in fact you trace the evolution or devolution of truth and politics in fate of fact you certainly seem to be a man on a mission john. Wh what is your goal with this. Podcast facts are not as stubborn as adams would've wanted or as we would want them you know the the mission is pretty straightforward america's at our best when actually agree on the contours reality Weakened in disagree and should About what to do about that reality. But we spin off into chaos and even autocracy when half the country decides. They're not going to engage with the evidence of their is. But they're just gonna make stuff up and we're seeing that in the most vivid Most tangible Most ambient ways right now and so. My my goal here is not to argue for some crazy liberal departure in american history but to argue for. What is fundamentally in classical terms a conservative interpretation of the world which is as edmund. Burke had it you address reality as you find it You are skeptical of broad ranging reforms because of the law of unintended consequences but you at least dwell in an observable and fact-based universe. And i think we're in a place where it's not both sides could be the left could go nuts does afternoon In in anything can happen. But they haven't yet. And what i wanted to do in the gas is sort of gift people for what it's worth my interpretation of the road to january sex and this enduring cult of personality With the greeter more lago. Well there's also a sort of a paradox here in that..

"Oh, Yes, so it's natural to feel as if nothing like this has ever happened. And for many of us, that's probably true. Our country has been through hard times before. The influenza of 1918. Great Depression, Panic. Second World War polio. And the Cuban missile crisis. Military build up on the island and in each case our national character has been tested. Let no one doubt That this is a difficult and dangerous efforts on which we have set out. Many months of sacrifice. Self discipline lie ahead. Months in which both our patience and our will will be tested. The greatest danger of all would be to do nothing. I'm Jon Meacham. And this is hope.

Karen, We tried to get ahold of Moses on your project. We're going to still continue. Okay. Now, um What I'd like to know is well not not like to know. We'll find out on what you want to do. I think what you said, was you just wanna wherever he is now stop and paying for what he's done or any materials you have and move on. I think Mark has a good relationship with him and can probably negotiate that. We did try to get him on. But we will talk to him later. So thank you for calling and make sure Daphne gets all of your information before hanging up or if she has it, you can hang up. James has a contractor. He is ah, wealthy young man who inherited some money. And this contractor, I think is taking advantage of him. He fired the contractor. He wants to know what to do now, James. This guy could put a lien on it and all that stuff and be a jerk. Is he a friend? Do you think he's nice enough not to do that? I have no idea what this guy's going to do. Okay. You said he was a friend. How is how is he, a friend? He's not a friend. That friend is his employees. Oh, I see. So this guy does he have a pretty big company. Give us the name of the company. Indeed, development Hey and G. Okay. And where is he? Is this in Denver or in Colorado Springs? Or where? Hey, Andy Development then. They just moved their offices up north. There are like 90th and 92nd and Okay, That's all right. That's all right. And and okay, and, um where was the building going To be? What part of town Just in general, where Inglewood. Okay. And what's the guy you were dealing with a K and G This? This person you you know, you thought would have been dependable. Curtis. Curtis. And what was the last you heard from Curtis? What was the last thing? He called me up on like two days. Tell me a bunch of, uh, cries, I guess. Yeah. Bunch of crap. So he just tell you anything you want. He thinks you want to hear. In general, I just want to try to get an accurate picture here. What are you doing now? Do you need someone to finish this? Yeah, I need to get it finished before we got a great deal building company. We do have got big. Go ahead. Sorry. That guy who poured the Dad is, uh Honest, it seems like and he's looking into finishing it. But like, but be be careful, James. Well, we'll give you some recommendations to but be careful. Okay? And and out of curiosity, and again, James, I swear to you. I think what you're doing is wise on depending on yourself and not getting financial planners unless you know one just beware of people. And I say this and I know good people. What I'm saying. Don't ever go to a one trick pony who sells something and then calls themselves the financial planner. I'm not saying that's a bad thing for I love for example, I love uh, Kion. Oh, I love these guys, but they do. Um, What they do is has become the banker. But that's basically the most of what they do, and that doesn't necessarily mean it fits everyone And I'm not saying it's not good. I'm just saying If you have a financial, a true financial advisor is licensed, independent and consult a number of different financial products, and you do it two ways. You either do it by a percentage of assets manage. So if they manage a million dollars for you, they do it by a percentage. And, um, um, benefit Rose about the garage, not finances. I know, but I was just telling you if you look for a financial planner, it would be best if you found one that that is honest and doesn't sell one thing. I was just giving a some parting words on the on the goalie before they poured that. I'm just curious before they poured that. Did they actually bring dirt in tow? Level it? I mean, what did they do before they poured it? Um A. I have a sighting gate with a concrete pad. Yeah, for the gate mechanism, and they just but it's their pad right up again. I know. But did they bring in? What he's asking is that you feel like doing anything, Phil Dirt. They actually compact the dirt toe like 99%. I mean, I don't even it's just so screwed up, man. Yeah. Did they did they do you? You didn't really watch him is what you're saying. Do you know that creates this forms? Do you know anything about the building? Did they say who makes the building or what kind of a building No. They were like Well in the steel building. They're like, Oh, it's way cheaper than what? No this other stuff. Well, what's weird is you're talking about a steel building. That's not even on a foundation. Yeah, That's the problem. James, a steel you got to be. You just have to be careful that it's going to be allowed where you are. It sounds like this guy didn't try to get a permit. He doesn't even know if it's allowed there like are theirs. Is there zoning where you're putting it? Commercial zoning? It's residential doing okay. Potential property. Okay. Does the residential property you gotta make sure before you put more money into this, James, what we're saying is make sure that the kind of structure that you want to put their is acceptable. Because it may not be Yeah, but it made okay. It's a garage. It's a garage to you, but it may not be a garage to the neighborhood. Even though you call it a garage. It may not be if it's a pole barn. Some people don't call those garages even though you could call it a garage. So you just That's what we're saying, Man. Just be careful. It sounds like We've got a company on the referral list. I mean, he'd probably talk to you for free man. In fact, I know we will just give him a call and ask him tell him where you're at. But it's great Western building systems, and this guy did mine and he did a bang up job. It's 804 97 21 35. He's a local guy, but he works the entire front range and they're honest and all that stuff, But just ask him, man. I mean, just ask him and then make sure we're moving on to another call, but make sure that Can't stress enough. Even though you're calling it a garage that the type of building that you are building is accepted in that neighborhood. That's either by neighborhood associations by covenants or by ordinances with the city. You've got to be be be really careful there. All right. Thank you very much for calling James. Appreciate it. 303. 713 talk 7138255 and we have more coming up on the troubleshooter show. Listen, here's the deal.

"This is Jon Meacham. We keep. Do you concur that that is the way we are used to hearing from our president's absolutely tonight marks the entire election results. Mark a renewal of an American conversation. So he was touting the Biden speech. But what he didn't tell, even line Brian was that he helped write that speech. John meets him and believe it or not, the most shocking thing happened. MSNBC actually fired the guy from actually fired him. That is the most shocking, shocking aspect of the whole thing. Jon Meacham, whose I know very well used to be on. I miss all the time he is. He is weasel personified this guy. He's just ah, a real squirrely spineless character. John meets him. Don't buy any of his history books because he's a bad guy, and he sucked as a writer as well. Now listen, a guy who I like a lot. Mike Tyson and I told a personal story myself. This is similar, and this is why I like the story. Which is back in the nineties. I actually use my wife's. Ah, you're in AA for a urine test. And I'm not proud of this, but I don't advocate people do this, But it was for life insurance, and I had been known to on a weekend maybe partake in a substance or so and I smoked cigarettes. When I drag. I don't want that to show up in my yard because that would increase Your premiums, right? So 100%. Well, they don't actually goes. They wouldn't even give you a policy, man. Listen, when I wrote my book, you're wrong in your ugly back in 2010 and I admitted to drug use And alcohol use in the book. We could get life insurance for the better part of seven years ago. So so the book and this is what I was fearing. So I actually my wife couldn't believe I had to do this. I said you're in the bath and put it in this. Put it in the bathroom in the Cabinet under the sink, The guy comes over Nice life insurance salesman. And it's like it's time of time for the urine and I went in, and I poured her urine in the tube that he gave me gave it back to him. And of course, I got the life insurance and that was in the nineties of Statue of limitations is long gone. Mike Tyson had a similar story was a Whizzinator was a prosthetic. Yeah, it was with you Put clean urine output. My baby's urine. I'm hoping I'm hoping that one day I used my wife, my wife. Baby. You better hope that he'd come back pregnant, Effective way to use. You know we're going to use the kid, but I got a kid in the pit might come back pregnant. You're pregnant? Yeah, I think that's happened before in the world. But I think a male was great. I guess I did. He hurt here. That happened since I was afraid of that. What did you have the right color Whizzinator? Because it was that NFL guy won round one that I heard this this guy. This guy was so much skin. Wrapped it on him, and I think the couple look at me. Yeah, Of course. He used the brown Whizzinator. I mean, what is he stupid? Like Tyson? He ain't stupid.

"Michael Krasny. Our guest is Jon Meacham and his new book is called The Soul of America. The battle for Excuse me? No, because his truth is marching on John Lewis in the power of Hope. He's also the author of the Soul of America. The battle for our bet, Elaine Jizz on. I don't know how John Mitchell got in there. The man was Nixon's attorney general and the inventor of the Southern strategy. But we're talking about John Lewis and John Lewis is someone whom we both admire greatly and It was a man of terrific principles and who believed in the bedrock of this faith, not only faith in religion because he was a man who is very tied to the Bible but also in humanity and Gets into Ah, a little story. We've got a lot of callers and a lot of people want to talk with you, John. But a story that I wanted to highlight in your book. I was remember the line of words Words, child, his father to the man. Even you write about being a Campaigning for Ronald Reagan when you were age 10 Here's John Mitchell preaching to chickens. At the age of four. I find that such a charming story in many ways and Mother's going toe, essentially take one of those chickens and make it into dinner. And we could talk a lot of hear about chickens coming home to roost. But I want to just talk about this episode of this anecdote. He refuses to eat it. I mean it. Sze talk about child being father to the man. It's really a very revelatory and wonderful story. Hey, said it was his first act of nonviolent protest was not not eating The chicken hey, overcame a stutter by preaching to the chickens in Pike County, Alabama. Was born in February of 1940. His great grandfather was a slave. Eso slavery was not an abstraction to him. He had an innate revulsion against the segregated order that into when she was born. Of that tributary intersected with the tributary of his faith. I've never known anyone in my life or the life of the nation who personally who Closed the gap between the profession of religious faith and fairness on practice as much as as John Lewis did. I believe he was a saint in the classical Christian tradition of that holy man In the great Today tradition. He was a Figure who Was willing to die for an ideal and that ideal was to make really commandment first found in Leviticus and re expressed in the Gospels to love your neighbor as yourself. There's nothing more radical revolutionary because who wants to love their neighbors as themselves? Right there, Not you There. Your neighbors. You wish him well, right? But ultimately when it comes down to it, do you really love them as much as you do yourself? And that's why it's so revolutionary. Sometimes you can find your neighbors not only not worthy of love, but you're feeling a lot of empathy toward neighbours as well. Unfortunately, In many cases, so John Lewis was really a profit for his time and also a congressman. As many people are aware. Let me get a collar on here. John joins us first, John, you're on. Hi. I was struck as a progressive with the headline. Basically, that just slightly half of the country is not buying what we're selling. And I think it has more to do with not for what that we're selling. But how we're trying to communicate, which I think goes very deep roots about identity and people feeling of a need for respect for how they identify themselves. So the issue to me and I'm curious John. What do you think about whether the question is the messaging and the way in which we communicate with the other half that we would love to be on our side? As opposed to trying to re think what it is. We're selling. This is an issue of how not what A marvelous question, and I think it's one that it is a kind of a perennial one in progressive circles. It certainly was the story of It's kind of go late 20th Century Democratic party right? It led to the new the Democratic Leadership Council. It led to which itself has created AH, critique produce a critique rather I I I tend to agree with your point because to me And I'm not. I'm not a partisan person. I am not a party operative, but I'll just tell you as a citizen what I think I think we've always grown stronger. The more widely we've opened our arms. A phrase I used all the time is From Seneca Falls to sell.

Has China lost Taiwan?

"Taiwan's president secured secured a second term over the weekend started scenes of the woman who stood up to China because China always believe China. Taiwan's recent election is widely seen as a watershed moment a referendum between Wayne. Two very different choices saw in win. She's the president since two thousand sixteen. She promised to protect Taiwan's freedoms from an increasingly assertive. He said he's an autocratic Beijing or the nationalist combing Tung came to the opposition which stressed causes ties with Beijing. The result a landslide two cy and her ruling independence leading Democratic Progressive Party. It was her warnings about China that hit home. We've voters this threat Israel with these respect from China situation has changed you. You cannot exclude the possibility of a war. And it's high invading. Taiwan is something that is going to be very costly fled China Taiwan's president saw in win on the basis now. She scored move odds than any other presidential candidate since Taiwan hi one began holding democratic elections in Nineteen ninety-six. So why has Beijing's efforts to control. Taiwan was it backfired and we'll China Now back off from what it sees as a renegade province remember most nations including the United States and Australia. We adhere to the one China policy which means we formally acknowledge Beijing's claims over Taiwan but what can Washington and camera do to help this vibrant democracy of twenty ninety four million in the face of arising China. Natasha Qassam is research fellow at the Lowy Institute for International Policy where she directs the annual Lowy Institute suit poll. She's a former Australian diplomat. And he wants is emeritus professor of Strategic Studies at the Australian National University and author of how to defend Australia. He's a former deputy defense secretary. Natasha Hugh Welcome to Iran. To be with you thanks for having is time now Natasha. Why has China lost the battle for public opinion in Taiwan? Look I do think there's a real question as to whether China ever had a chance in this respect. You've got a longstanding up position in Taiwan to unification with China. You've got a long standing position to one country. Two Systems the model that China developed in the eighties Fulbari Taiwan and Hong Kong. And of course we see the problematic way that's playing out in Hong Kong today but the most important issue here I think has been the emergence of a unique Taiwanese identity entity. This is what has really changed over the last decade the majority of Taiwanese people they see themselves as Taiwanese and in part this is in opposition to a growing authoritarian -tarian reach from China but in pilots a product of Taiwan's transition to democracy. It's unique history in terms of its different periods of colonization and indigenous peoples. I think today we can say that. This far more that divides Taiwan and China then unites them. Is that growing sense of independence in Taiwan. And Natasha you mentioned Hong Kong and how that was supposed to be the roadmap for China's One Country Two Systems policy the clearly rebuked in these elections hugh. How does Beijing you all these? Well I think they must be very gloomy very concerned and I think getting pretty angry because I completely agree with Tushar I think the elections very significant because it confirms assumes absolutely that the prospect of an eventual consensual reunification of Taiwan agreeing to be absorbed or reabsorbed helped by the mainland looks more and more remark and the problem for everyone including for Taiwan is that Beijing is very unlikely to accept except that Beijing for Beijing reunification as I sit bringing Taiwan back into China is an essential part of their agenda of Xi. Jinping's agenda to for the rejuvenation as he calls it off of China overcoming of that century of humiliation which which began with the opium wars lower back in the forties and which she has set himself to overcome overturn. I think for him getting Taiwan back as he I would say it is. There is nothing more important to him. Nothing more important to the Communist Party and so we have The seats of a real tragedy because as Natasha says it's clear and clear that the Taiwanese don't want to be part of China and it says clearest safe obtain the Chinese determined to make it part of I hear you say Washington Santon. Sorry Beijing won't accept Taiwan's growing assertiveness but hasn't by aging conduct here been counterproductive. I think of John is if it's to intensify military not exercises around the Taiwan Strait. If it's to US light diplomatically. A Taiwan a hasn't that just stiffened the resolve of the tonys. ESO expected. Has I think I think that's been effector I think is Natasha. Says I think what's happened in. Hong Kong has has disabused anyone in Taiwan of any illusions about what one-country-two-systems three two systems would really mean. If it was applied to talk to Taiwan I think the growing authoritarian nature of the Chinese Communist Party ruled in China itself under under Shuzhen Ping Has Added to that. Boils I think as Natasha says again. That that the the the long term development of Taiwan itself Tallinn's entity that the the evolution of a very vibrant democracy there Meant that perhaps. Whatever Beijing done even if Beijing it'd be much less frightening that it has been it still would have been unlikely that Taiwan would move voluntarily to do what Beijing once and it's actually is hugh why wrought out here and he's not alone? We've had on this program over the last few years Professor Jon Meacham from the University of Chicago. The argument here is that not only will China be much more powerful awful than it is today but it will also remain deeply committed to making Taiwan part of China. I think she's deadline. Is this attender of the Communist revolution. Which would be a twenty four nine in other words? Tom Is on China. Saad your response. I disagree that Taiwan is really significant priority for Xi Jinping's China. But I think it's important when we think about what their highest priority is and for me that is always the domestic legitimacy of the potty state and and so by Beijing's policies primarily directed at that domestic audience. They might be failing in Taiwan but suddenly what they ought designed to do is to demonstrate two people in China that Beijing holds all the cards that they have a able to exit military pressure on Taiwan that they can exclude Taiwan from international organizations and that is the highest priority and under Xi Jinping's China. I think the hotline inflexible policies will just continue for godless. The effect that they have in Taiwan. But at the same time I do think it's a self fulfilling prophecy to argue that China will become so powerful so we should roll over and do nothing and therefore it will allow be allowed to become even more all powerful in military and economic times. I think this is almost a given Alpha China. But it's not a given in terms of China's power. China's power has been restricted in the region winslow in many ways many countries including Australia do not recognize the ages over the as traders say. China hasn't succeeded in achieving. Its goals in the South China Sea. It hasn't succeeded in closing bases in Japan. There's that in South Korea in numerous ways. I wouldn't say that time is on China side if anything I I think. China as a rational actor recognizes the cost of a protracted war a much higher than the cost of their patients on that knowledge has as Shea Jingping pink overreach. The embroiled other countries led by the US but including Australia to a newly skeptical view of Chana. I look clearly Thomas. China's Powell grows as system becomes more authoritarian as the way it seeks to exhibit influence throughout the region becomes to put it politely a more assertive a lot of countries. You Niger and beyond becoming more and more worried about what. China's power and hatch on is going to use its power mains over the next few decades but that I think we'd be too optimistic to imagine that China is somehow becoming a self limiting problem. I do think Jonah's power has grown. I think it's influences growing there. It's I still true. Of course. There's Natasha is that there are lots of things at China would like it. It hasn't yet got but I'm more pessimistic than she is that about China's capacity not to get its way increasingly as time goes on and it's worth bearing in mind all the things that China does get that yes Not everyone accepts what China wants to do in the just south China Sea but Australia. Itself hasn't undertaken serious remove navigation operations Australia and self does not acknowledge China as a strategic rival. The United States does Japan treating China increasingly cool. She asleep as it becomes less and less confident about Donald Trump's America. And we'll push you. It's Responsibilities towards Japan onto the treaty. So I think actually China is doing pretty well. I think we've made a big mistake. To underestimate raced tonight. But China's resolve in its capacity to use. Its Influence to get what it wants. I guess. Hugh Watt for my new and Tasha Qassam from from lowy and we're talking about Taiwan and China in the wake of the all in democracies election widely seen as a rebuke to Beijing. The TASHA you say Beijing's going to weaken Taiwan's democracy house. Oh look I think I said that it was going to try and I think it is trying in many ways. It's trying through disinformation Ryan and bypassing more media outlets in Taiwan and then controlling the narrative in that way it is certainly trying to infiltrate grassroots organizations like temple organizations sations and farmers and fisheries groups. The thing is that Beijing is very much moving away. I think from trying to support. Just one side of politics. The Guangdong Minggong which has always been seen as more friendly towards Beijing insofar as has been unsuccessful because the dog is not able to as. We've all of the reasons since we've already outlined. They are not able to deliver Taiwan in any way because of the way of public opinion against China. So now I believe that Beijing is trying to undermine undermine the democracy itself to undermine people's faith in institutions trying to essentially mess it up I think the best expression I've had tended into Crimea so that you have a government paralyzed a government that people do not trust and in that way the system would be much weaker. You Natasha to agree that Beijing is going to try awaken Taiwan's democracy and certainly badging will increase the pressure to open talks on reunification. I suppose the question here is wise. China so sensitive about Taiwan one. I mean think about it Taiwan or Formosa as it was earlier known. It's only been part of China for something like four out of the past one hundred twenty twenty five years since Japanese colonization nineteen ninety-five four out of one hundred twenty five and those four years when the nationalists who fled to Taiwan. They were running the mainland alien so why the sensitivity. He what. We'll Tom Because one hundred and twenty five years is not very long time in the way of China's paypal and the Chinese government see themselves CBS and has precisely one hundred and twenty five years that I see correctly in some ways as being a very black period in the history and that the the great mission of the Communist Party has been to bring China out of that as I said before the rejuvenation of the Chinese people. It's hard to underestimate. Overestimate the the emotional power Al behind this idea of China returning to its previous position and Taiwan has become a and the Chinese Communist Party has made Taiwan into a a symbol of everything bad that happened to China before and everything that Diane resolved to fix and the way in which they they put Hong Kong back into into the fold the YM which have grown their economy the way in which they have reasserted China's military power and have trying at least to reassert itself the parish cultural pass at a speak. All of that is part of the deal but Taiwan is in a sense that the jewel in the crown for them and so I think the the political political and to a certain extent the emotional fright that the Taiwan issue carries does make it absolutely central to the Communist. Party's not just its own sense of itself but it's confidence that it can continue command. The loyalty and achieved legitimacy in the eyes of the Chinese people as what Communist Party delivers not just in terms of prosperity but in terms of China's dignity and position in the world symbolized by Taiwan that is so central to its legitimacy as the government of China Anna. And does that mean Natasha Qassam. That is now a very real danger that the listen Beijing takes from size relection. Is that the only way. Taiwan will ever a unify with mainland China. As at the end of a gun. Look that's entirely possible but I have to say I'm not convinced that as an argument mainly because we like to think think of China's military palate in terms of it being this very quick victory. RV Taiwan because they are coming late outgunned in that sense but none nothing about this would be. It would be very difficult to take Taiwan in terms of its geography and even an invasion is really just the beginning. When you have twenty four a million people who don't want to be a part of your country you have? Refugees flocking to other countries in the region including Australia. You'll have resistance in the streets. You'll have disruption to global supply chains at which Taiwan lies at. Its hot this is not an easy proposition. It is laden with

Like the program today as well as Purna ship with startups with universities with many local nonprofits through our skills to succeed initiatives with our recently formed apprentice program as well as with our clients throughout the valley from San Jose to San Francisco. Additionally, I'm very proud of Accenture continued commitment to achieve a fifty fifty gender balance workforce by twenty twenty five. And we're absolutely dedicated that to that here in our local market. The state of the valley conference is absolutely one of my favorite events. I'm very excited to be here representing center and very excited to have the privilege to introduce our keynote speaker today. We spent the morning talking about Silicon Valley region are trends where innovation is taking us. The challenges we face and the things that we can be doing right here with their own leaders and our own community. The purpose of this. Final session. However is to broaden the scope and talk about silicon valley's place in the nation about our dealings with our national leaders about our impact on Washington and Washington's impact on us. Finding someone who could discuss all that was a tall order. We wanted someone who's close enough to Washington that they weren't speaking generalities. We want someone who could provide those necessary nuances those crucial and interesting details, but we wanted that person to have sufficient distance from Washington. So they could see the big picture. So they could talk about it, systematically analytically. And finally, we hope this person would have a sense of history. We thought it'd be really helpful. If our keynote speaker could help us make sense of the moment, we're in today by comparing it to other critical times in our history. There were also mocked also marked by division and fear. But also hope. That person is Jon Meacham. I'm not going to do a long introduction of Mr. Meacham because you already have his bag graphical information in front of you. But instead and simply to tell you that I considered Jon Meacham to be exceptional, and as evidence it's worth mentioning his Pulitzer prize. Extended periods. His books have spent on the New York Times bestseller lists and the constant demand for him to peer on talk shows on major networks, and yet perhaps exhibit A is his extraordinary capacity through the written and spoken word to make our nation's history and historic figures, both real and relevant in the present. Thanks to Jon Meacham are rich history is alive. Well, and meaningful to us all for those reasons and more. I'm so honored to present you with our culminating speech speaker, Mr. Jon Meacham. It's very doc. Severinsen? Y'all just old enough to get that a my last book tour, I was with a book to be a book publicist you have to be over twelve but under twenty as it turns out. And so I made some joke about Johnny Carson in front of the people who were working with me, and they said deeming Carson Daley. And I realized it was really getting too old. My favorite moment. Like that was teach at Vanderbilt and once a year ago subject came up of how student newspapers used to be run. And I said, well, you know, you would print out the copy, and then you'd cut it, and you'd pasted and a young woman raise your hand said, oh my God, that's cutting paste came.

Trump, who likes people who weren't captured, honors former POWs anyway

"Said somebody should run against John McCain who has been in my opinion, not so hot. And I supported him. I supported him for president. I raised a million dollars from a lot of money. I supported him. He lost. He let us down. But you know, he lost. So I'd never liked him as much after that. Because I don't like to lose. But but Frank Franklin we'll get to he hit me. He's a war hero. He's award. He's a war hero presumes captured. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. I hate to. That was a moment July of twenty fifteen and many people who saw that thought in the moment that it might end his month-old presidential campaign, right then. And there as we laid a learned it did not the president has since doubled down on his dislike for the now. Dead American hero. John mccain. It sounds as though POW's have not been his thing. Nontheless as president. He did what others have done on this date by declaring April ninth as national former prisoner of war recognition day still with us our measures, Michael Beschloss, and Jon Meacham. Michael, no, mention no reverence. He was blocks away from the Hanoi Hilton. Where so many Americans were tortured in Vietnam. No visit it's not his thing. It is gross and disrespectful to the memory of John McCain and self knowledge that I may not Donald Trump. You sort of wonder if it occurred to him when he was approving the idea of a national POW day that this was not exactly in sync with the terrible comments. He made about John McCain for years ago when he was beginning to run for president and those he's made even after John McCain passed, I just don't get it. This doesn't help them in any way that I can see Jon Meacham last night on this broadcast. We aired part of speech delivered Sunday by mayor Pete Fort, Wayne, Indiana, Pete Buddha, judge it was about his life in large part as a gay man in this country the last item on a long resume. He as I said last night. He's a lot of things. He's a Harvard grad.

"I've spoken of a shining city, all my political life. But I don't know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind, it was a tall. Proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans windswept God, blessed and teeming with people have oh kinds living, in harmony and peace a city where the pre ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the wheel and the heart to get here note has mentioned there of walls that was the nineteen eighty nine. Farewell address Ronald Reagan from the Oval Office thirty years ago to day still with us the historian and author Jon Meacham, there is the current occupant of the White House his address from the Oval Office this week, John there were Democrats. That election night when Jimmy Carter lost in tears because they thought that our country was ruined. And we were going to be laughing stock of the world, then came Ronald Reagan and in a country where unless you're a scally wag we tend to look affectionately back on our former presidents question is to you did people in real time. Look at this guy has farewell address and say, you know, what that's just an a shining example of what we want our president, and our presidency to be or has it been fuzzed up and history along the way. Well, there's different than something being fuzzed up in our seeing it more clearly, and I think that in a lot of times with presidents. We had this Truman we had with George H W Bush for mountains tend to get a little larger, and we judge them more effectively the farther we are away from them, President Reagan left office, pretty popular. We tend to forget Iran-Contra. We tend to forget that as you say there was this quite compelling, or at least widespread view that. He was as he put it somehow combination. The mad bomber and ebony or Scrooge and you're right people. The people fault the presidency itself in the late nineteen seventies had become diminished where we had the equivalent of four one term presidents from nineteen sixty to nineteen eighty whilst wanting to assassination one to Vietnam. One to Watergate president Ford loss. Carter and then president Carter loses to Reagan. So we had five presidents in twenty years. There was an op-ed Lloyd Cutler White House counsel for Jimmy Carter wrote a piece in the Washington Post saying the presidency was now too complicated for any one person. And then a long game Ronald Reagan and whoever does get disagree with him. But he certainly proved that the office it self in the right hands could be a force for good the speech that night remarkably thirty years ago, we're now separate as far from that speech as he was from Eisenhower leading Washington, which makes us all feel old. I think that night it was saying as a kind of grace note, the old boy was having one more one more turn on stage. And that in the paper though in the New York Times that day Bill Safire conservative had a column saying Reagan had had a good first term. But we wish you hadn't had a second term. So he was not a Rushmore like figure, what's so remarkable to me about this speech written by our friend and colleague Peggy Noonan is that you realize that it should be with Eisenhower in Washington's that his argument for openness for big heartedness for all the pilgrims from all the laws places link through the darkness toward home. You realize that he was warning us in that Reagan esque way that we had open our arms and not clench our fist a terrific point. In part of the reason the American people in all their affection routinely rank Ronald Reagan among the top ten favourite presidents in their lifetime. Jon meacham. Thank you very much have a good weekend, sir. And we're lucky to have you after a night light tonight coming up for us. We all heard the president's words this week. But we will show you how one organization heard his Oval Office address in a different way..

"Just the same old lies the same old rhetoric over and over again delivered an incredibly boring and flat affect to know political or legislative impact whatsoever. And you know, I think that Jon Meacham second ago said that you can't have negotiators in corner. What you saw tonight was Donald Trump in an Oval Office. Stuck in a corner of around office unable to find his way out of it? No path forward. No solution. And I think as your guests have said tonight Lawrence. We're going to gradually see house and Senate Republicans melt away from the. President joined with the Democrats reopen the government and then have a conversation. But what the best way is to secure our border. Jon meacham. You tweeted something earlier that really struck me. And I'd like the country could consider it. We're gonna put it up as I read it. You said America should build a wall of steel Awal as high as having against the flow of immigrants, Georgia governor Clifford Walker at a nineteen twenty four convention of the Ku Klux Klan than a powerful force at a time of strain for the white working class and John of the anti immigrant. Awal concept has been around for a while. Sure has Walker was a Georgia politician who had not been a member of the clan had lost gubernatorial election. So he joined the clan and he won. He gave that speech at clones occasion. They called it in in Kansas City in twenty four remarkable period. Nineteen twenty four as you know, was the democratic national convention it drove the convention to one hundred and three ballots because there were something like three hundred twenty seven members of the clan who were delegates to that convention, and they couldn't vote for this radical figure out Smith why because was an Irish Catholic. And there was this ferocious anti-immigrant sentiment goes all the way back to seventeen ninety eight when we passed the sedition acts anti-immigrant sentiment ebbs and flows right now is flowing. The interesting question is to what extent is genuinely flowing beyond the fever precincts of the president and his base, and that's going to be the. Fascinating question is as you rod. We're just saying when we see if there is a resolution, this particular moment will there be Republican politicians who will realize that. In fact, the Fox News world in which so much of the right wing lives is not in fact, where the country is in twenty eighteen John Ron clan. Thank you both for joining us. Really? Appreciate it. And when we come back, we'll be joined by a former acting director of immigration and customs enforcement. We'll get his reaction to what the president had to say tonight..

Bush’s note to Clinton in January 1993: ‘Your success now is our country’s success’

"I wish you will. I wish your family. Well, your success now is the country success. I'm rooting hard for you. Karen? It's hard to believe in two thousand eighteen that those words passed between presidents, but that was the decency of George H W Bush it was although he was hurt. And for a long time. He did kind of disappear. He went home to Houston. He would joke about walking the dogs and loading the dishwasher, and certainly there was some vindication. Eight years later when he and Bill Clinton are once again on that inauguration, the inaugural stand, and then it is George W Bush taking the oath of office. So. So the president did have some time to to sort of reevaluate take stock again. But also had had the satisfaction of seeing two of his sons become governors one of his one of them president and ultimately in doing good works with Bill Clinton for a very close personal relationship to the point where the Bush brothers would would joke about him being there other Jonathon Allen. You have been prolific this morning in your analysis of of president, George H W Bush, and you when one of your stories this morning, you you sort of describe him as being the end of ehre. Absolutely. Thank you for the direction. They're really in a lot of ways sort of the last of his kind. I know Jon Meacham has been on our air the author who wrote about him. He describes him as the last gentleman. He was also the last president to start flight and finish a war. And I think most importantly, he was a president who represented a moderate brand of republicanism of the last of those that we've seen there's been an evolution in the Republican party.
