Fresh update on "justin trudeau" discussed on Stephanie Miller
"That's the speaker of the House of Commons, Anthony Rota, who invited Yaroslav Hunter. Rota This House is above any of us. Therefore, I step must down as your speaker. I reiterate my profound regret for my error in recognizing an individual in the House during the joint address to Parliament of President Zelensky. That public recognition has caused pain to individuals and communities, including the Jewish community in Canada and around the world, in addition to survivors of Nazi atrocities in Poland among other nations. I accept full responsibility for my actions. On Wednesday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, also formally apologized. I also want to reiterate how deeply sorry Canada is for the situation this put President Zelensky and the Ukrainian delegation in. It is extremely troubling to think that this egregious error is being politicized by Russia and its supporters to provide false propaganda about what Ukraine is fighting for. Friday's joint session was about what Canada stands for, about our steadfast support of Ukraine's fight against Putin's brutality, lies and violence. It was a moment to celebrate and acknowledge the sacrifices of Ukrainians as they fight for their democracy, their freedom, their language and culture, and for peace. This is the side Canada was on in World War II, and this is the side we are on today. Meanwhile, Canada's conservative leader, Pierre Poiliev, described the event honoring the former Nazi soldier as the biggest single diplomatic This week Poland's education minister issued a statement calling for Honka's extradition to Poland to be tried. For more, we're joined by Lev Galinkin. He is the Ukrainian -American journalist who's looking for the forward, first confirmed Yaroslav Honka was a World War II veteran who fought in best a unit. Nazi SS Lev has reported extensively on the Ukraine crisis, Russia and the far right. Welcome back to democracy now, Lev. So explain exactly who this guy Honka was. How was it that he's standing there, 98 years old, in the gallery and pointed out by the House of Commons speaker and everyone who have Trudeau apologizing? I don't think Zelensky has said anything about this yet. He has not, as far as you know, Zelensky has condemned this unit SS Galichina in 2021 when there was a march in honor its in Kiev. So he condemned it in 2021. He's been silent since as far as this incident. I'll tell you this, Amy, as soon as I saw the news that he was described as fighter a for Ukraine's independence against Russia, I knew that he was a Nazi collaborator. The only question, the first question that just went through my mind was which unit was he in? Because that's a euphemism that they used to say, you know, we didn't fight for Germany. We fought against Russia. It's a cheap rhetorical trip because when they fought against Russia, they were fighting alongside and under and under. This dark history and taking in Nazi collaborators, including in the nation about Canada's Nazi monuments, which they have monuments to this exact division, this is a country that on its soil has monuments celebrating the Waffen -SS, as does the United States. So, in many ways, Jaroslav belonged Hunka up in the parliament because he was there as of part a country that took in at least 2000 SS Galicianavets, 2000 of these Waffen SS soldiers from a division that committed horrific war crimes. And one of the interesting things is because they were taking in partly because they were enemies of the USSR, so it was Cold War politics. But, and this is something that gets often lost, an extraordinary benefit for why Canada took them in was the using them as strike breakers to break the powers of the unions. The unions were growing strong after World War II, and these men that were organized and ready to act as strike breakers. So this is a stark part of Canada's domestic policy and foreign policy together. So if you can explain further when it comes to World War II, how All these Nazi units were formed, what their relationship was with Germany? Yes, it's very important to know that these people described as their Ukrainian heroes, the overwhelming majority of Ukraine fought against the Third Reich. Two and a half million Ukrainians perished. They gave their lives fighting against the Third Reich. The only ones who really say that Ukraine, Ukraine collaborated with the Nazis. That's what Vladimir Putin says. That's what Moscow propaganda says. The reality is that that a small region in western Ukraine welcomed the Nazis. And this is the same region where they started slaughtering Jews as soon as the Nazis invaded. In many cases, the SS didn't even have to kill the Jews because the Ukrainian nationalist death squads have already done it. So, this small percentage rose up. They joined the Nazis. And in 1943, when Germany needed even more soldiers because Germany was losing the war, they created this Waffen -SS division, which was mostly composed of volunteers and people like Hunka said that they volunteered for this division. They committed war crimes. At the end of the war, they were taken in and they were released. And many of them, thousands were taken into the UK, into the US, into Canada. So, the biggest thing that people should understand is that when we think of Nazis being taken into the new world, we think of Argentina and Nazis hiding there and keeping a low profile. These Nazis were openly proud of what they did in Canada. They formed organizations, they formed veterans associations. I think, you know, people have been asking me like, what was he thinking? Why was he even putting himself out there? And the answer is because Canada spent so long turning a blind eye to these people and allowing them to be proud of who they are. The notion that anything would happen, the notion that people would complain, I don't think it crossed this man's mind because I and everybody else, the few people who report about this, we were Russian propagandists. And even though these were literal Nazis who were historically strictly proved to have committed war crimes, people don't want to hear it because they were, it's Holocaust revisionism. They were portrayed as heroes. These are war criminals who successfully painted themselves as heroes. So I was stunned that all of a sudden Canada decided to face its past. So why do you think the Ukrainian President Zelensky has not said anything given he's condemned that unit in the past? I mean, there he was along with obviously Justin Trudeau, the House of Commons speaker who has since resigned applauding man. this And how was he brought to the House of Speakers attention? I think he lived in his area to be brought to the House of Commons to be celebrated as Zelensky met Well, this is a man who was active in the community, especially I think there's evidence coming out that he don't he definitely donated money who did his family did he donate money to the University of Alberta, for was this a person who was active in the community. So he wasn't just some random, random person plucked at random. So as far as that, as far as Zelensky, I mean, he's in the middle of fighting a war. That's obviously a something that's in his mind. He was just away on a state visit, he came back. think But I the important thing is so far, I don't think anybody's asked him in the media. And I think the important question not is why hasn't he said anything, but why wasn't he asked for his response when Trudeau apologized when the Canadian Parliament Speaker apologized. And they also just want to suggest to understand how entrenched this is in Canada. Canada's deputy prime minister, Christian Freeland, has spent presenting years her grandfather, who was a Nazi collaborator, as a war victim. attacked him. OK, so the Canadian Parliament Speaker spent 30 seconds turning A perpetrator into a hero. Christian Freeland has done it for decades. And it. Explain exactly who her maternal grandfather is. Her grandfather worked as a propagandist that took over a Polish newspaper.

"646. Newsradio 1000. FM 9077. Your Information Station. Sponsored by K2 Vision RLE. Thanks for joining us. I'm Kim Stepper. Bill O 'Neill at the Editor's Desk. And here's what's happening. Canada seems to have infuriated India after the Prime Minister indicated India may have murdered a religious leader in Canada. Diplomats have been expelled from both nations as well. Coletta Amanda is covering this for the Washington Post and spoke with Northwest News Radio's Taylor Vansice. Before we get to what it was that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said this week. Tell us about the Sikh leader and his murder this summer which happened just north of Bellingham and our border in Surrey, British Columbia. So Hardeep Singh is a prominent Sikh leader in British Columbia. He was the president of a Sikh temple and he was murdered on June 18th while he was sitting in vehicle his in the temple's parking lot by two masked assailants. He came to Canada from India and became a Canadian citizen several years ago. India has labeled him a terrorist for his advocacy for an independent homeland or Sikh separatist movement in the Punjab region of India and it saw his extradition from Canada several years ago saying that he was linked to the slaying of a Hindu priest in Punjab. So whatever the circumstances he's killed this past summer and what is it that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told lawmakers about that murder this week? On Monday, which was the first day that Parliament returned after the summer break, the Prime Minister stood up in the House of Commons and said that he needed to speak to Canadians about an issue concerning the country's national security and he said that over the summer Canadian intelligence and law enforcement agencies had been actively pursuing what he called credible allegations that agents of the Indian government were tied to the murder of Nijar in British Columbia. And we should say that Canada has a significant Sikh community. From your reporting I think it said 770 ,000? So this isn't the first time that an issue in India has resonated with such a massive population in North America. Mr. Trudeau, Mr. Modi, they're both expected to be at the UN General Assembly in New York this week. How is it expected to play out? Well, Canada and India, the sort of frosty nature of ties was sort of on display at the G20 summit in New Delhi this month. Prime Minister Modi had many bilateral meetings with world leaders. Trudeau notably was not one of them. He was sort of visibly we sidelined, though the pair did chat sort of on the sidelines. And Modi's office said that he right. He raised some concerns with Trudeau, including what the Indian government sort of sees as the Canadian government being sympathetic towards six separatists in Canada. Now, Canada for its part, has said that it can't do much to prevent people from holding peaceful rallies in favor of Sikh separatism, that they have freedom of speech and freedom of expression rights rights in Canada. And Trudeau told Parliament on Monday in his announcement that he had actually raised the allegations with Modi about possible links between his government agents and this murder. So I would expect that these kinds of frosty, thorny relations will be evident at the UN General Assembly as well.

A highlight from News Block: Bitcoin Outperforms Other Assets, FTX's SBF Jury Questions, Binance vs SEC, Anti-CBDC Bill, Grocery Inflation
"Welcome to the CoinStories news block. I'm Nathalie Brunel and in the span of just 10 minutes, roughly the same time it takes to mine a new Bitcoin block, I'll provide you with concise, insightful updates on Bitcoin and the global financial landscape so you're well informed on the week's top stories. Everything you need to know in one place in one block. Let's go. Bitcoin started the week with a nice little green candle. But zooming out, Bitcoin is officially the best performing asset class in seven of the last 10 years. That's according to data shared by market strategist Charlie Bilello. Between 2011 and 2023, Bitcoin's annualized return was about 145 percent. Compare that to the Nasdaq 100 index at 17 percent, the S &P 500 at 12 .5 percent and gold at just 2 percent. Sorry, Peter Schiff. And for those lucky enough to buy Bitcoin in 2011 and hold, their cumulative return exceeds 8 million percent. Wish that was me. More institutions are eyeing a spot Bitcoin ETF, the latest being Franklin Templeton, another giant asset manager with 1 .5 trillion dollars in assets under management. Franklin Templeton's application joins BlackRock, Fidelity, ARK Invest and several others. As I've reported here on the news block, a spot Bitcoin ETF would make getting exposure to Bitcoin as easy as buying any other stock or bond in a traditional brokerage account. It would increase access to Bitcoin and make it easier for funds to flow into the space. But of course, that's dependent on approval from the SEC, led by Chairman Gary Gensler. The SEC's main complaint for why it has rejected spot Bitcoin ETF applications is market manipulation and fraud. In a Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs hearing last week, Gensler answered questions related to the SEC's oversight of the entire crypto industry. Gensler testified, quote, given this industry's wide ranging noncompliance with the securities laws, it's not surprising that we've seen many problems in these markets. Thus, we have brought a number of enforcement actions, some settled and some in litigation, to hold wrongdoers accountable and promote investor protection. Gensler is continuing to hold the court decisions for him in the SEC's lawsuits against Grayscale and Ripple Labs. And when pressed in the hearing about how the SEC will protect investors from crypto fraud, Gensler responded by saying these companies need to be compliant with existing securities laws, adding this. But right now, unfortunately, there's significant noncompliance and it's a field which is rife with fraud, abuse and misconduct. We saw some of that fraud and misconduct with the high profile downfall of FTX. FTX founder Sam Bankman -Fried's case is set to go to trial October 3rd. But this week, a story gaining attention is related to the proposed questions SPF's lawyers want to send to potential jurors. And prosecutors are trying to stop this. The would attribute a crypto firm's failures to the owner of the firm and why, and whether they think it's wrong to donate large sums to political candidates and lobbyists. Another question was about SPF's effective altruism, the idea that he only wanted to amass wealth to give it away and improve the world. And yet another was about whether the juror had experience with people with the medical condition ADHD. Now, the DOJ's prosecutors are worried these questions are aimed at getting jurors that would see SPF in a sympathetic light and have written a letter to the judge to remove these questions entirely. SPF faces more than 100 years in prison if convicted of a number of charges, including fraud, conspiracy and money laundering after he allegedly stole and lost billions of his customers' funds. Meanwhile, Binance, another exchange in hot water with the SEC, also made headlines this night, including the CEO, the head of legal and the chief risk officer. Binance US has also cut a third of its staff. Binance issued a statement blaming, quote, the SEC's aggressive attempts to cripple our industry. Now, the layoffs arrived just as the SEC is accusing Binance of not cooperating with its ongoing investigation. The SEC says Binance US has failed to hand over proper documents that ensure that its customer assets are safe and in sole control of the organization. The recent resignations of Binance US leadership, including CEO Brian Schroeder, only added to the growing concerns. Binance CEO CZ responded saying, quote, there has been some speculation regarding recent management changes at Binance US. Brian Schroeder deserved a break after accomplishing what he set out to do two years ago. Ignore FUD. Keep building. Binance makes up about half of Bitcoin's trading volume, so the government complaints and investigations could delay any spot Bitcoin ETFs from being approved. So I'll be staying on top of this developing story. Now, in other news, in an industry first, Swann Bitcoin announced its plans to launch a Bitcoin only trust company with crypto custodian BitGo. This comes after Swann's former custodian Prime Trust filed for bankruptcy in August, and its current custodian partner, Fortress Trust, was acquired by Ripple Labs. The creation of a Bitcoin only trust company is a positive development given the risks that we've seen arise when custodians hold other cryptocurrencies or do business with companies that handle them. Let's turn now to a bill reintroduced by House Republicans that would outlaw a central bank digital currency or a CBDC. Last week, Republican House Majority Whip Tom Emmer, along with forty nine co -sponsors, reintroduced the CBDC Anti -Surveillance Act. The bill aims to prevent the Federal Reserve from issuing a digital dollar due to the risk it imposes to privacy and individual freedoms. Tom Emmer tweeted, quote, if not designed to emulate cash, a government digital currency would dismantle Americans' right to financial privacy and embolden the administrative state. I won't let that happen. Specifically, the updated bill prevents the Federal Reserve from issuing a, quote, intermediated CBDC, which would be a digital currency issued by the Fed but managed by retail banks. This is a similar system to what's currently being deployed by China with its digital won. Congressman Emmer adds that this bill puts a check on unelected bureaucrats and ensures the U .S. digital currency policy upholds our American values of privacy, individual sovereignty and free market competitiveness. Whereas Republicans are focused on stopping a CBDC, the Fed is only concerned about bringing down inflation. But this past month, inflation was on the rise again. CPI rose to three point seven in July, and that's mainly driven by rising energy and food prices. But don't worry, economist Paul Krugman, the guy who famously said the Internet was a passing fad, notes that if you exclude everything people actually need, like food, energy, shelter and used cars, inflation is actually down. But here in the real world, people continue to struggle with the rising cost of essentials like groceries and gasoline. And instead of taking responsibility for their inflationary policies, some politicians are identifying scapegoats for the rising cost of living. In a speech last week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blamed grocery stores for price rises and said the companies could be hit with new taxes if they do not take steps to control food prices. And let me be very clear. If their plant doesn't provide real relief for the middle class and people working hard to join it, then we will take further action and we are not ruling anything out, including tax measures. Leaders of the Canadian grocery store chains responded by saying they are not profiting from inflation because although prices have risen, so have their costs. Grocery store profit margins remain razor thin. In fact, the CEO of one major Canadian grocery chain, Loblo's, said that on a customer's $25 grocery basket, they earn just $1 in profit. Performing price controls or taxing these companies would only negatively impact the available supply of food even more and risk putting these grocers out of business. But once again, government policies are threatening to worsen the problem they helped create in the first place. This is true in America, too. Grocery store profit margins remain some of the lowest in the economy, averaging about 1 to 3 percent. Some grocery stores are struggling to keep their doors open here, especially in big cities amid massive waves of theft. This has even led to cities like Chicago proposing to open government -run grocery stores. Will this help the inflation picture? Doubtful. Of course, inflation isn't the result of grocery stores profiteering. It's the result of central banks and governments injecting trillions of dollars into the economy since 2020. As politicians continue to blame inflation on everything but their spending and central banks continue to raise interest rates to try to bring it down, inflation continues to erode the savings of every household holding the currencies that these institutions manage and control. Bitcoin fixes this. All right, let's wrap up this news block with the craziest Bitcoin headline of the week. It was reported that Paxos accidentally paid more than $500 ,000, that's more than 19 Bitcoin, in a transaction fee. Bitcoin fees are up in 2023, but not by that much. Now, the good news is the mining pool that won that block is going to refund that payment to Paxos. That's got to be a relief.

A highlight from Why Tucker Carlson is a Bitcoiner | EP 825
"Yeah, welcome to Simply Bitcoin Live, we're your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin and religion of carbon making news called Traumatic Warfare. We will be your guide through the separation of money and state before anyone makes fun of me in the chat. My mother -in -law got me these like blue light blocker glasses and I put them on last night and I felt like immediate relief and there's like different shades for it. So like these are like nighttime when the TV is there and then these are like right before you're gonna go to sleep but apparently these are for daytime. Anyways, they're badass, your eyes literally feel like they're relaxing and Opti of course is already trolling me and as well, I'm sure the chat is as well. So that's why I'm wearing these, maybe I'll continue wearing, they feel good, I'm on my computer all day, you know what, I don't care at this point. Anyways guys, today's gonna be a great, great show, orange tinted glasses, I didn't think about that. Today's gonna be a great show, we're gonna talk about the man, the myth, the legend, Tucker Carlson himself. His show last night that he released on Twitter, which I highly, highly recommend, actually has last time I checked, 320 million views, it beat the interview that he did with Donald Trump by like 100 million views. And once again, you have a politician, right, so Justin Trudeau is basically gaslighting saying like, you know, we have to put price controls on the grocery stores for raising the prices and all that stuff. But you have a politician who is literally identifying the problem, he's literally saying the government is the problem, the money printing is the problem, the government is the sole cause of these things. You have an Austrian economist who has a really good opportunity, really good shot at winning the presidency. And why I believe this video was so popular was the same reason as to why I believe that video Richmond, North of Richmond, went viral the way it did. People are feeling the pain, people are questioning the current system, and people are desperately seeking an alternative, which is why I believe this this hardcore libertarian Austrian economist has a really good shot at winning the presidency in Argentina, and the country is currently dealing with 100 % inflation, like, like, obviously, people are questioning it. And when you have a politician who's actually identifying the real cause of inflation, like people put two and two together, right? Javier Meli wouldn't be popular if he didn't strike a nerve. Richmond North of Richmond wouldn't have gone viral, right? Without any of the marketing and any of the push by the big studios, it was just basically a very small studio, it's a guy in his backyard with his dog, literally singing into a microphone. That would not have gone viral if it did not resonate with people, if people weren't feeling the pain that he was feeling, right? So this is, we are living through, in my opinion, the separation of money and state. All these roads, like even if Oliver Anthony, and even if, you know, Javier Meli, you know, and we know he likes Bitcoin, but you know, he wants to dollarize the country, all roads eventually lead to Bitcoin. Some people take the longer road, some people take the shorter road, but eventually it all leads to the inevitable conclusion that we have to separate money from state, because as long as the state has the privilege of being able to create money for free that everyone else has to work for, they will abuse that privilege to benefit themselves and benefit their friends at the expense of everyone else. And this is exactly what Bitcoin fixes. So this is really, really exciting times. Tucker, I don't think he would be at this point if it wasn't with the conversations that he had with Naeem Bukhale. Tucker would not be at this point if it wasn't, if he didn't have the conversations with Michael Saylor. Tucker would not be at this point if he didn't have the conversations with Max Keiser. And even though he was the most popular broadcaster on the legacy corporate media, his words were so dangerous that they had to fire the guy. And that makes sense. Look at all the other articles that are that's coming out of the legacy corporate media attacking Naeem Bukhale, attacking Javier Milli. Because I think they're exposing the fraud that is fiat money and the fraud that is the current established system anyways, it's going to be a great show before we get to it. I want to bring up my legendary co -hosts. We're both wearing glasses now, Opti. Opti was making, I was telling you hard, it's so much fun of me in the beginning, but I'm going to buy you a pair. You're going to be you're never going to take off anymore because I need the colorblind one. Your eyes are literally going to relax, bro. Like your eyes are literally like look at my eyes are like relaxing right now. They're like they're like, oh, like I don't even know what that means that your eyes feel relief. Like you don't even know what that means, bro. I have no idea. I've never looked as cool as you do right now with those glasses on. So I wouldn't know. I wouldn't know. But anything anyways to the opening monologue, which was great, very, very eloquent. And you had that politician rhetoric going right there. I really liked it. I really enjoyed it. One of the things that's pretty crazy is the fact that Tucker got so many views on this. What what I don't know what it is now, but last time I checked, it was like three twenty two, three hundred twenty two million. Like that's damn near the whole U .S. population. And we all know that Fox wasn't getting to every single person in the U .S. Obviously, it's global. But that reach that Tucker has on Twitter or X is just it's absolutely crazy. And this goes back to what we keep saying all the time of breaking the echo chamber and planting these ideas. And of course, Tucker doesn't have to go full Bitcoin maxi like we do on our show. But the fact he's having these conversations, I think does feel like a shift in the zeitgeist and people are waking up. And we've been kind of covering pinpoints and receipts about this constantly, whether it's the song, whether it's a post that I did yesterday in the culture, whether it's the tick tock videos, like people are feeling the pain and they're asking the questions. And so, you know, the soil is right for people to understand Bitcoin and for everyone to get on the Bitcoin standard. So it's just, wow, three hundred and thirty five million views now. OK, the Overton window is crazy, man, is shifting, man. People are sick and tired. People are sick and tired of the gaslighting. You had Opti's ex -girlfriend literally telling people that the cause of inflation is because workers are asking for more salary. Like it's absurd. Anyways, we do have a very special guest today. We have James from Stamp Seed and we're going to talk about the stamp seed before. Look, I got to show off my stamp seed hammer. Look at this thing. Nice. There you go. We got we got to we got to stamp seed hammers. So I'm very excited for the culture. We're going to talk about the stamp seed, why you should back up your Bitcoin wallet seed words on titanium, one of the strongest metals on planet Earth. Is that is that correct, James? That's correct. One hundred percent. Yeah, man. So we're going to we're going to we're going to. We're going to dive deep into all that. And I know a lot of you guys I know that you did you guys did a lot of the stress testing. I think it was Lop that did some of the stress testing comments. Migo, you remind me of Bono from YouTube. It's true, but I don't think Bono was wearing these. I think Bono was wearing these for stylistic reasons. I'm wearing these so that my eyes could relax from the from the evil blue light that's coming out of my screen anyways. So, yeah, you guys did a lot of stress testing on the stamp seed. That's correct, right? Yeah. We haven't had Lop stress tested yet. I think that's in the works right now. But we tested ourselves in house, various different sources of heat. One of them was a blowtorch, which is similar to Elon Musk, not a flamethrower, which is reaching temperatures triple the average house fire. This is one of the plates that we had stress tested. You can see it's been burnt to a crisp. That's why there's all that discoloration. We marred it up. So where you can see those hammer marks are hit. You can still see your letters. It might not come out too clear in the camera. Bent it, crushed it, you know, being that it's one solid piece and your letters are stamped deep into the metal when you bend it. Things aren't going to. There you go. Look at that. Look at that. Yeah. Things aren't going to fall apart. You know, there's no loose pieces, no loose tiles, you know, Scrabble pieces, I like to call them. Everything's in there. Yeah. Like this is like as if your house caught on fire that elephants stamped on the ruins afterwards. Yeah, right. This is what this looks like. Yeah. Or if you know your house, you know, you have two floors, maybe the first floor collapses during that fire. And, you know, you have some crushing issues on top of it. But chances are things like that hopefully aren't happening to most people. But if they do, you're secure. If they do, your money, your generational wealth is protected. Anyways, guys, let's jump into the numbers. I want to talk about Tucker. I want to talk about with about everything that's been happening. Let's check it out. The Bitcoin numbers, is your Bitcoin and cold storage really secure? Is your seed phrase really secure? Stamped seeds do it yourself kit has everything you need to hammer your seed words into commercial grade titanium plates instead of just writing them on paper. Don't store your generational wealth on paper. Paper is prone to water damage, fire damage. You want to put your generational wealth on one of the strongest metals on planet Earth titanium. Your words are actually stamped into this metal plate with this hammer and these letter stamps. And once your words are in, they aren't going anywhere. No risk of the plate breaking apart and pieces falling everywhere. Titanium stamp seeds will survive nearly triple the heat produced by a house fire. They're also crush proof, waterproof, non -corrosive and time proof. All things that paper is not allowing you to huddle your Bitcoin with peace of mind for the long haul. Stamp your seed on stamp seed. All right, guys, I literally made it super easy for you guys. You can scan the QR code on your screen. It'll take you directly to the stamp seed website and you can use promo code simply to get 15 percent off any of the stamp seed products. And I know you guys are doing custom back plates, too. I saw some that were really bad ass. Yeah. So do you have one, by the way, on hand? I do, actually.
A highlight from Ask Charlie Anything 158: The Mass Graves Hoax in Canada? DOJ v. Tesla? #BantheADL is Trending?
"The U .S. dollar has lost 85 % of its value since the 70s, when the dollar decoupled from gold, and the government seems bent on continuing the tradition. Charlie Kirk here. From now until after the elections, the government can print as much money as they want. The last time they did that, inflation went up 9%. Gold is the only asset that has proven to withstand inflation. Invest in gold with Noble Gold Investments. You will get a 24 -carat, one -fourth of an ounce gold standard coin for free.

Andrew Kolvedt, executive producer of The Charlie Kirk Show, filling in one last time for Charlie Kirk. This is an Ask Me Anything with producer Blake Neff joining me. We take your questions, including the DOJ's investigation over Tesla and the secret glass house project. We talk about the trending hashtag, ban the ADL. Is it a good idea? Is it a bad idea? What's behind it? And what the heck is the ADL even doing these days? We break it all down. We bring receipts. We talk about Oliver Anthony. Is he a traitor to conservatives or is he just a Rogan bro? And then we break down the intriguing race hoax out of Canada. Mass graves? I think not. We have the details and a really tragic story for Canada, which is just, you know, what can I say about Canada? That and so much more. Buckle up. Here we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House, folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created. Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives. And we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. I'm going to welcome back Blake Neff, our resident foil contrarian, editorial producer, The Charlie Kirk Show. Blake, welcome to The Charlie Kirk Show. You're trapped with me for the next 60 minutes, Andrew. I know it's that's what our audience is saying in the chat right now, too, by the way, Blake. Blake is fantastic. One of the smartest guys that we have around. One of the smartest political minds, too. The way this works, you guys send questions into freedom at charliekirk .com. We take your questions, we answer them. Normally it's Charlie, but now you got Blake and Andrew. Our first question, Blake, and I know this is near and dear to your heart because we're tweeting and texting about it. Andrew, I just saw a news story in the Daily Mail about a fake mass grave at a Christian school in Canada. I vaguely recall a lot of news coverage of these mass graves two years ago. I think the Pope even traveled to Canada to apologize. What's the deal? And that is Clive from New London, Connecticut. Clive, great question. This was a story breaking this morning. Very interesting stuff. Blake, why don't you fill the audience in on the backstory and then we'll riff. Yeah, Andrew. It's a great story and maybe the audience will like me more because we get to talk about an important topic in American life, which is that Canada sucks. One of the problems with Canada is they really have this national identity that they've embraced over the last few decades. What does it mean to be Canadian? It means to be America, but more liberal. More liberal in every way. They've been really out of sorts, especially since this George Floyd thing blew up. They're like, we didn't really have slavery. We didn't have this great historic crime. They kind of have this Me Too idea that they need to have a reason that they are also Hitler, that they need to be really ashamed of their history. And what they really fixated on was they fixated on these residential schools, which is America had these two. Obviously, they have American Indians in Canada or as First Nations as they call them. And to sort of try to Westernize them, Christianize them, make them sort of more culturally European, they ran these boarding schools or residential schools as they called them and educated First Nations children there for like about a century. And these schools had issues with them as you'd expect. They're often in the middle of nowhere. They were often on sanitary. Physical and sexual abuse would occur at them as has occurred in every and society in schools all around the world. But Canada really fixated on this. And then about two years ago, there was this explosion, this bizarre story where they started these kind of amateur investigators were finding, they claimed to be finding a mysterious possible mass graves at these various residential schools throughout Canada. And this fueled this insane conspiracy theory that children had been murdered in mass at these schools and then buried in mass graves and it was all covered up. And instead of debunking this, the government leaned in on it. And there were dozens of churches in Canada in response to this were attacked with arson attacks, vandalism, some were burned to the ground completely. Like, like I have the numbers 83 that were burned or vandalized. And if you could throw out that other graphic from UnHerd, 83 churches were burned or vandalized in the aftermath of this fabricated hoax. And this this I mean, this is an interesting graphic when they put it up. It says why the Canadian left is burning down churches while progressives tweeted churches serving indigenous communities burned 83. I mean, that's a shockingly high number. It's a huge number. And it really was it's like there are yes, there are anti Christian people in the First Nations community. But a lot of this is really similar to how you'd see it in the US where you have these very radical activists, often just like white activists in big cities. And then like, what are the actual beliefs of the First Nations themselves? Well, a lot of them actually just are Christians. Because, you know, the residential school succeeded in a lot of their mission. And then they get these their churches, which, you know, they might only have one church for 10s of miles. Canada is not a very densely populated place. And these places are getting torched and attacked. And Justin Trudeau's government sort of said like, Oh, well, we oppose we oppose these attacks. But it's very understandable that people are angry. They got the Pope to show up and apologize. The the question was correct about that. But now two years later, they're following up and they're actually okay, well, you claim the remasked graves. Let's dig them up. Let's go find it. And they're either discovering one, often they're just not they're they're just normal cemeteries. And maybe like the headstones, you know, the headstones were made of wood, and they decayed. Or there's just nothing there at all is this story that there was no bodies in this alleged mass grave, they literally had a massive meltdown, which resulted in an anti Christian spasm of, you know, arson and violence that the government enabled. And it was all based on a lie. And it was a lie to fulfill this, like, BDSM type motive that the left has where they like they crave this, a basement, they crave the ability to be like to wail wildly about how evil their ancestors were. And so like, again, it was like it was like me to George Floyd is like, we want to also be evil. We want to also be really racist in our history. We want to say Canada is evil. And so they just inserted this really grave crime into their history that did not happen. Yeah, I mean, I think I think it's it's pretty tragic, because we we've seen this too. And we have a video of this, I believe. Let's let's go ahead and play some of the fallout. As a result of this, not only were they burning down churches, they were tearing down statues, a movement that we saw happen in the United States as well. Let's go ahead and play cut 199. No Pride and Genocide. So here you have a bunch of petulant little children, also known as leftist, dancing on the the the the foundation of a toppled statue saying no pride and genocide. And meanwhile, they are. Yeah, go ahead. It's a statue of Queen Victoria, which the Queen Victoria did not really personally preside. I mean, she was a constitutional monarch. She's really just a symbol of the British Empire at its apex, but she was not running the genocide. She was just the queen of Britain. And but they again, they're like, well, America, they and their entire identity is so bound up with America. They're like, well, America's toppling Confederate statues. We don't have any Confederates because we weren't in the American Civil War. So who do we get? Get rid of the queen. Well, in this, this self hatred that the left has for their own history, you know, colonialism, patriarchy, whatever. It's really this insidious virus that has crept into the the West. We call it a collective psychosis in the Western world. It's, it hates anything strong, it hates anything exceptional, it hates anything that can dominate something else. So if you have enough power to dominate, whether it be indigenous populations in this instance, or become a global hegemon, because, you know, this is why you don't see the left, you know, especially our leaders in Washington fight back with any gusto against the de -dollarization movement that's happening. It's almost like they, they want to self flagellate to the point of parity with the rest of the world, if not us getting dominated by them. And it's a, it's a very distinct characteristic of the left, I believe the Unabomber actually had some interesting quotes about this, but like, maybe we can bust those out for next segment. But what do you think, and we've only got a minute in this segment, what do you think drives this passionate response on the left? You know, if I had a full easy answer to that question, I think it'd be easier to defeat this, because it really is. It is a profound force. You know, the Unabomber thing, he points out that they do, they hate the West, but not because of any of the bad things they've done. They specifically it is because they've been so successful. And in a weird way, we're victims of our own success, which is, you know, the West kind of flagellates itself over slavery, because we had the innovation of deciding that slavery was morally wrong, and abolishing it purely on moral humanitarian grounds. That was an innovation of the West that we have exported to the rest of the world. And our reward for ourselves is to destroy ourselves over this, or in Canada's case, to go the extra mile and invent crimes that did not happen, because we are so desperate.
A highlight from Bitcoiner Wins Argentine Presidential Primary | EP 802
"It's all going to zero against Bitcoin, but it's going up forever, man. Yo, welcome to Simply Bitcoin Live. We're your number one source of the peaceful Bitcoin revolution, killer breaking news, culture, medical warfare. We will be your guide through the separation of money and state. And I think we're witnessing it firsthand. Breaking news. I think it happened over the weekend. A pro Bitcoin president won the presidential primary, literally destroyed everyone else. I'm talking about Javier Milli. This guy has said, quote, in the past, Bitcoin is the natural reaction against the central banker and scammers to make money private again. Now, of course, can't trust a politician. I just want to start with saying that. But this is in itself, it is it is just you could even call it noise. But this is a continuation of a trend that we're not only seeing in Argentina, obviously, we saw it in El Salvador. We're seeing it here in the U .S. as well. Right. On both sides of the political aisle, on the Democratic side, you had RFK Jr. On the Republican side, you have two candidates. You have Vibek and then Ron DeSantis, which have gone out and said something very similar. Obviously RFK is a more staunch supporter of Bitcoin, he names it by name, but also in the DeSantis camp as well. And then also in Canada, you have Pouliere Polyvart, who is running against Justin Trudeau in the next election. And he's pro Bitcoin, anti central bank digital currency. So it's like this the political momentum is starting to pick up steam. And in five years, I really, really believe this and I really stand by these words. I think it's going to be politically unviable to be against Bitcoin. But why is this happening in Argentina? Well, Argentina is currently enduring more than 100 percent inflation. And when that happens, you know, the the bread and circuses, so to speak, the distractions aren't as effective as they usually are when people can't make ends meet, when they can't save, when they have to buy a used car or washing a washing machine just to maintain their purchasing power, they start to ask questions about the system. They start to ask questions about the money and the powers that be know this. Remember when the IMF bailed out Argentina once again, one of the conditions was that the Argentine government had to deincentivize the adoption of Bitcoin in the country.
A highlight from US Governor to PROTECT Bitcoiners and BAN CBDC | EP 795
"You Yeah, we're gonna submit Bitcoin live or your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution of car breaking news culture manic warfare We will be your guide through the separation of money and state we have been talking about this concept about It's not red versus blue it's not left versus right it's the party of orange versus the party of green and it's interesting that Predominant political candidates here in the United States on both sides of the aisle on the Democratic side. You have RFK jr. It Literally his speech at the Bitcoin 2023 conference was saying that he's gonna protect the right for Bitcoiners to take self -custody It's interesting on the other side on the Republican side in the second place for the presidential Republican candidacy is Ron DeSantis and he released a meme I would call it because that's really what it is an ad you could say better said and it was called the Declaration of Economic Independence and One of the tenants or one of the things and it was a list of ten things that he's gonna do if he gets elected President number eight it was rain in the Federal Reserve and in there There's a specific section that focuses exactly literally it says word -for -word. I'm not even kidding protect Bitcoin So I think that's interesting how this is heating up. This isn't a phenomenon that's only happening in the United States This is also happening in Canada You have Poulier Polyvar who is running against Justin Trudeau and he's also against central bank digital currencies And he's for Bitcoin So I find that really interesting how you know, this political debate is heating up at the end of the day These are politicians. I know I'm not a big fan of politicians I don't trust politicians, but look I you know, I'm I'm a fan of This happening during the transitionary period from a fiat standard to a Bitcoin standard I think the more people on our side the better Especially with you know, what we know the other side is doing on yesterday's episode We covered the proposed bill Bipartisan bill sponsored by Senator Cynthia Lummis and Senator Warren that would force validators miners wallet providers to KYC, which is Freaking crazy. So, you know the more people we have on our side of the football the better in my opinion And also we have a very special guest today. We have the CEO and founder of start 9 Matt Hill, how you doing, man? Hey doing good. Thanks for that meal. Thanks for coming today, and I'm a big fan of start 9 I think they make some of the best nodes in the space and you guys are all about that sovereign computing Which I'm a big fan of I got myself. I think you've rebranded it. It's not to start 9 Pro anymore But I got one of the founder additions and I'm absolutely loving it. What's the rebrand called? What do you guys call in it nowadays? The pure Start 9 pure and it's a it's a workhorse. I think it runs on an i7. Is that correct? Yeah, the reason why we renamed it is because it doesn't actually pack the punch that you would expect a pro device to pack So it is powerful. It's far more powerful than almost anything. People are running Bitcoin nodes and personal servers on but It's not It's not the most modern chip You know as you start talking about like AI applications, it doesn't have enough RAM It's it's a good powerful device But we have plans for what we're gonna call the pro and it's going to crush this thing from a performance standpoint but this thing is unique in that it touts a Ninety nine point nine percent open software stack through to the firmware, right? There are no proprietary drivers for Wi -Fi or graphics cards or anything like that It is a it is a very pure device that is based on some of the work that Purism put into opening up the firmware and excluding the Intel management engine and stuff like that So it's a privacy and security oriented device rather than a pro power device, even though it does pack a good punch So we renamed it to the pure gotcha. So you're gonna take even more of my money understand Very looking forward to the the new and what you're gonna call it Anyways, I see Opti laughing his ass off. What's up, man? Man doing good doing wonderful this morning and shouts out to everyone on yesterday's show You guys loved the lightning giveaway live we handled it but won't be happening again until I figure out exactly the The kinks on it because some of y 'all ruin all the fun for the rest of us, but I'm excited for this one Obviously, you know, we've been seeing Ron DeSantis talk about CBD seeds for a while now Hopefully he can get that conversation going in all circles and it's becoming very interesting that you know the CBDC and Bitcoin narrative is becoming a point of contention for political candidates and It's going to it's looking like it's gonna be a crazy ride and then we get the talk start 9 all day Which is I don't know Nico's Nico's been getting me on and I'm like, man I really need to get one of these these things are looking amazing. So I'm excited for this one Nico Let's get into this. It's gonna be great show. All right, everybody no more delay Let's jump straight into numbers. Let's do it The Bitcoin numbers is your Bitcoin in cold storage really secure is your seed phrase Really secure stamped seeds do -it -yourself kit has everything you need to hammer your seed words into commercial grade Titanium plates instead of just writing them on paper Don't store your generational wealth on paper papers prone to water damage fire damage You want to put your generational wealth on one of the strongest metals on planet Earth? titanium your words are actually stamped into this metal plate with this hammer and these letter stamps and once your words are in they Aren't going anywhere. No risk of the plate breaking apart and pieces falling everywhere Titanium stamped seeds will survive nearly triple the heat produced by a house fire They're also crushed proof waterproof Non and -corrosive time -proof all things that paper is not allowing you to huddle your Bitcoin with peace of mind for the long haul Stamp your seed on stamp seed our guys and you could scan the QR code on your screen right now I'll take you directly to the stamp seed website Don't put yourself in the position where you have to explain to your grandchildren Why you lost your generational wealth because you stored your seed phrase on paper Store your seed phrase on the titanium seed phrase storage kit available on stamp seed and you can use a promo code Simply to get yourself a major discount at the time of report at the time of recording the Bitcoin prices 29 ,250 sats per dollar three thousand four hundred nineteen block height eight hundred one eight hundred one thousand five hundred and thirty blocks to having thirty eight thousand four hundred and seventy having estimate April 20th 2024 total lightning Network capacity four thousand six hundred ninety one Bitcoin capacity value 137 million US dollars realized monetary inflation one point seven six percent The market capitalization is five hundred sixty eight billion dollars with the B Bitcoin versus gold market cap four point three eight percent Alright moving on to the video that I want to talk about today. You know, they're saying the quiet part out loud Let's check it. Let's check this out. This is Ron DeSantis at a political rally. It's a threat in Florida we've seen them talking about it. So I actually signed legislation where we don't recognize Central bank digital currency now Congress could override us on that but the Fed unilaterally I don't think they could override us on that. So we've protected Floridians, but as president on day one CBDC goes into the trash can we're not going to allow it And we are gonna let Americans invest in things like Bitcoin and cryptocurrency No one's forcing you to do it. If you want to do it, you can do it Biden's war on Bitcoin and cryptocurrency will come to an end when I become president. It's a threat. I mean look, it's very very interesting It's not just Bitcoiners that are like Hypothesizing and like, you know like that mean with the guy like pointing at the board with all the wires connected and stuff Like look what's going on? It's becoming apparent that operation choke point 2 .0 is not just some meme that Bitcoiners came up with on the internet like V moves by the current administration whether it's the custodia bank with Caitlin long We had her on the show the other day. Like it's clear that in the eyes of this current administration They don't see Bitcoin as money they want to push forward the central bank digital currencies and look at the Look at the launch of the CBT of the American version of the CBDC which they say is not a CBDC But it sure feels like a CBDC which is the Fed now, right? And here is the Declaration of Economic Independence I was mentioning in the beginning of the show and If he were to be elected president, he would block a CBDC and he would protect Bitcoin doesn't say crypto He says Bitcoin by name. And of course, he's not just doing this out of the kindness of his heart He's doing this because he's a politician. He wants to get elected and his direct opponent I would say rather than Biden really is RFK jr. On the Democratic side and he's been very vocal about Supporting Bitcoin and being anti CBDC. He had a speech at the Bitcoin conference They got a tremendous amount of press and then he had another announcement which he did on a podcast Where he would vow to bow Bitcoin He would vow to back the dollar by Bitcoin and he would exempt Bitcoin from taxes Of course, you know, I don't trust politicians But it's just interesting how it's like kind of like this forcing function Like one politician says something and the other ones like yeah, I want to get those votes too. I support Bitcoin, too This is this is very interesting. I think that by you know the end of the decade I think that it'll become politically unviable to be something to be against Bitcoin. That's that's my opinion. But again, you know never underestimate You know these people and the lengths that they are willing to go to In order to maintain their privilege of being able to create money for free that everyone else has to work for so Matt You're a builder is all of this stuff noise to you What's what's going on in the sidelines and I really want to focus that I wish we covered that on today's show, which is Yesterday we had a very very scary bill that that came out and in that bill it basically said That they were going to force validators and you could say validators or nodes to KYC their customers So it's very interesting that that wording that they use. So what's your take on that? The the first part or the the validator part let's Everything everything. What's your take on everything? I I care deeply about politics. I'm I read history. I Understand and read about politics and economics and but I spend most of my time writing code I am NOT up -to -date with every current event or which politician said what I Buy into the thesis of the sovereign individual that technology is the primary driver of political change throughout history And so I personally spend most of my time trying to Create and innovate on technologies that forcibly push power to the edges of the political system and thereby influence change From from a layer beneath where these politicians are operating So as I see people like Ron DeSantis or RFK Talking about Bitcoin I do not believe that this is coming from a place of them necessarily understanding or even caring but from a place of necessity right, like the the the Winds are changing and they are trying to say whatever they need to say to get votes and their polling is telling them that these Are the things that they need to say to get votes. And so we're it's working right? Like I don't believe them I don't trust them. But that is proof that Something is happening that is causing them to take this seriously and not only to take it seriously but to side with it right Bitcoin is forcing political change Not asking for it And so what I get annoyed by is when I hear them say things like we're gonna let you trade in Bitcoin and stuff like That and sure I get why they're saying that and I count that as a check mark in the win column But also I'm like fuck you, you know, you're not gonna let me do shit We're gonna do whatever we want and you're gonna go along with it because you have to because technology makes you comply I love that. I absolutely love that and we're big fans of the sovereign individual and simply Bitcoin We reference it at least once a week on the show and I completely agree and you know It's it's the but it's it you're just watching the state as they they lose, you know This this this they lose their control over society in a way You're seeing them kind of like go through this denial phase where they're like look we'll let you do it You know what? Actually, we're big fans of digital currencies, too. We like CBDCs. We're supporters of CBDCs Why don't you use that, you know, so it's just interesting watching them squirm around it in a way I feel like they're panicking a little bit like they they want this thing to go away, but it just won't go away That's that's correct. It's not going away. You cannot un -invent technology Technology that empowers people Doesn't want to be un -invented people are going to use it And it's great that it was designed the way that it was that's what made Bitcoin so innovative Is that it really is fuck you money and Good luck trying to get validators to KYC people. I mean it it's silly that they At this point do not understand it Well enough to refrain from saying such a silly phrase, right? Generally politicians speaking try not to look foolish, right? They don't want to take hard lines against things that they can't enforce because it just makes them look silly, right? That's the one thing they always try not to do is look silly they can lie They don't care if they're malicious whatever but they don't want to look foolish And so that's gonna make them look very foolish, right? If something like that were to come into into practice It will be un -un Done overnight as they realize what a mistake they have made 100 % and what I'm referencing everybody also is just a you know Just to kind of show everybody what I'm referring to it is the digital asset anti -money laundering act Which was included into this defense bill and it included extend bank secrecy act responsibilities Including KYC customer requirements the digital asset wallet providers miners validators and other network Participants that may act to validate secure or facilitate digital asset transactions. I agree with Matt 100 % I think that is unenforceable, but it doesn't mean that they're not gonna try anyways, so Opti What's your take and then we'll move on to the news? Yeah So first I think it's very interesting to hear dissent to say what Bitcoiners have been saying for a while that there is a war against Bitcoin coming from the Biden administration and Maybe it carries a little more weight because it's coming from the political class and not from you know us fringe conspiracy theorists on Twitter or whatever you want to call us but To Matt's point I was gonna say the same thing Like we don't need the president to let us do anything with Bitcoin its permissionless money and completely legal by constitutional standards So it's nice to hear And of course, I don't want friction in regards to Bitcoin like, you know, make my life easier as a Bitcoiner Would love to see it but honey bad you don't care this is a global phenomenon and America will continue to shoot themselves in the foot by fighting Bitcoin and of course as someone that lives in America I don't want to see us continue down this path and would like to see people embrace Bitcoin It really doesn't matter because of entrepreneurs like Matt out there that are building the freedom tools That will force the narrative like they've lost control as far as I'm concerned and now they're they're trying to pander to Bitcoiners So on the one hand just love to see it and on the other hand It's just like I don't know it just seems like lip service to me But I mean personally I know I know Nico you're in Florida and you have different views and we'd love to hear the conversation I don't really think that Santas has a has a chance to win but it's cool to have these conversations.
Toronto Principal Commits Suicide After Allegations of Racism
"Toronto school principal committed suicide. I Must tell you committed suicide is so much more Truth telling Died by suicide. It didn't happen to him. He did it. It doesn't honor the person After he was accused of supporting white supremacy for calling out a black instructor during anti -racism training You know that arguably Canada is Moving towards totalitarianism at a greater rate than the United States with Justin Trudeau and Blocking The truckers ability to use their own money in their bank accounts. I think that they they surpassed us at that point But it is definitely a competition downhill For which society can die by suicide More quickly Canada or the United States Richard Bilk stow Bilk s z t o so it's not it's probably bill stow because it sounds like a Hungarian name and I believe s z is so much in Hungarian worked in the Toronto School District for 24 years had been serving as fill -in principal at the Burnham Thorpe Collegiate Institute Where he faced workplace bullying as a result of the argument with an anti -racism trainer And tell you because we know if if there's one country that is truly racist When I think Canadian my first thought is racist
Why Canada's PM, Justin Trudeau, Is Taking Aim at Elon Musk
"Begin with the Canadian broadcast corporation, which is a little bit upset because Elon Musk dared to say on their Twitter profile what they are, which is state funded media. 69% state funded was actually what Elon went with. Nice. Well, this is not going over well. Look at what the prime minister Justin Trudeau had to say. He runs to American billionaires. The tech giants that they continue to defend in committee. Conservatives are always there to defend them. So when they're trying to attack a foundational Canadian institution, the fact that he has to run to American billionaires for support to attack Canadians says a lot. Okay, okay. So they're all worked up. Elon's just telling the truth on this one. Let me give you some of the numbers. If you look at their financial report from 2022, they got 1.24 billion from the government, wow. I mean, that's a lot of money. And 651.4 million from advertising. You tell me what kind of business it is, right? I mean, let's just call a spade a spade. And you see, when it's a government funded media organization, I'm sure you have some very well meaning journalists there, but look, you know, bite the hand that feeds you. You got 1.24 billion coming in from the state, chances are you're doing a lot of the state's bidding. Aren't you? I mean, this is just reality. And it's worth having that transparency. Why shouldn't we know this? We see something that comes from the CBC in this way. We know this is an organization that is funded by the government, primarily funded by the government. So they have their bias, right? And I have mine.
Biden's Canada agenda stacked: NORAD, migration deals likely
"President Biden is in Canada's capital for talks with prime minister Justin Trudeau on a bunch of big global issues. I'm Ben Thomas with a look. Several of the world's most difficult challenges are on the agenda, the war in Ukraine, climate change, trade, mass migration, and an increasingly assertive China. But two important areas of agreement already appear in hand. U.S. and Canadian officials say Ottawa will escalate its timeline for military upgrades to the North American aerospace defense command. Norad, and an update to rules for migrants seeking asylum, the deal eliminates a loophole under existing rules that's resulted in thousands of migrants annually crossing into Canada at a non official checkpoint, enabling them to stay in the country. As part of the agreement, Canada is expected to announce that 15,000 migrants from the western hemisphere will be given slots to apply to enter. I'm Ben Thomas

Legislation due to be introduced this week in the U.S. regulating technology from China, senator Mark Warner, one of the sponsors and Bloomberg's Kaley Lyon says concern is secrets. And it gives the U.S. the authority on national security concern grounds to ban or prohibit certain Chinese technology here in the U.S. and says, of course, it would include TikTok. A report today, U.S. House speaker Kevin McCarthy says he's going to change plans for meeting with Taiwan president Tsai ing Wen.

I want to know too about the origin of this pandemic that upend years and cost millions of lives and damage. But that have to be at a standstill while we hear this information. And Bloomberg's Rick Davis has definitely time to move. How serious do we want to take this? Do we want to actually get investigators to go into these labs, create a global pressure campaign to do it? And I'm sure China's not the only one we should be looking into. Yeah, U.S. official position at this point is that most likely COVID began in a bio lab in Wuhan.

We're going to have investigation. We're going to see exactly what occurred. But in the meantime, we're going to have to hold them accountable to make sure the community is made whole again. The bill is a bipartisan effort being spearheaded by Ohio senator sherrod Brown. One of the things our bill does is create a two person crew. Norfolk Southern wanted to have a one person crew on these trains. Another is to notify emergency agencies at a train carrying hazardous materials is going to be crossing into the state.

Are We Under Attack?

U.S. Military having to shoot down the third airborne object. This one now, in the Canadian territory, they had the permission of course of the Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, we shut it down, and it follows the other two that we've had to shoot down and you start to say after a while, what's really, really going on here. There is a fourth, by the way, that nobody's talking about. Which I'm amazed by that the Chinese have admitted to it a fourth balloon, it's been hanging out in Latin America. Now the technically they've only admitted to two of these balloons, but they are trying to say that they're both weather balloons. Yeah, right. Well, anyway, the weather ballooned down in Latin America. That one is still there. And because they have some countries like Venezuela in their back pocket because these countries are so indebted to the likes of the Chinese or in some cases Russia. You've got Nicolas Maduro saying, oh yeah, you know, I believe them. I mean, he sounds a lot like James clapper, James clapper, the former head of U.S. intelligence, under president Obama recently saying he's inclined to believe the Chinese. Amazing what people will do and what people will say when they are so desperate to try and appease,
'Unidentified object' downed over Lake Huron, 3rd this week
"Authorities in Michigan are reporting another aerial device has been shot down over their state. The fourth in a series of suspicious objects. Michigan congresswoman elissa slotkin says an unidentified object was shot down over Lake Huron. After authorities restricted airspace and military jets were scrambled. It follows the shootdown of another flying object over Alaska on Friday. And another Saturday over the Yukon in Canada, which was described by prime minister Justin Trudeau on CTV. It represented a reasonable threat to civilian aircraft, so I gave the order to take it down. Both are believed to be balloons, according to Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer, who was briefed over the weekend. They believed they were, yes. He tells ABC's this week with George Stephanopoulos. Intelligence analysts are reviewing what was recovered from the Chinese surveillance balloon shot down the weekend before, off the coast of South Carolina. And piecing together what all this means.

The Bio-Medical Security State With Dr. Aaron Kheriaty
"Examples, doctor Kerry, of what the biomedical security state is. So this is the welding together of three things that used to be distinct. Number one, an increasingly militarized public health apparatus. And I'll talk more in a minute what I mean by that. Number two, the use of digital technologies of surveillance and control to manage entire populations. The vaccine passport is a good example of the use of this during the pandemic that the QR code that you had to show just to get on a plane get on a train go to a restaurant or a social gathering. Get back into your own country of origin. Back in 2018, if you were to hold Americans, we're going to be doing this soon. They would have thought that you were insane. But after a year of the propaganda and the year for the lockdowns, people were willing to do just about anything to get back to a semblance of normal life. But we know that digital technologies were used in much more insidious ways. So for example, back in 2021, Israel passed emergency legislation along with the shin bet, basically their verge, the FBI. To extract without the public's consent track and trace data from their phone to see if they were following lockdown orders or to look at exposures to omicron. Now they at least did that publicly with legislation from people that could be voted out of office. Canada admitted a few months later. That they had been doing the same thing throughout the pandemic, even though Justin Trudeau had promised the public that they wouldn't do so. And their public health had agency admitted they were going to continue doing the same thing on into 2026 using this data for applications beyond COVID. In May of last year, vice broke the story that the CDC was doing the same thing. Again, without the notification or consent of the public, the data was supposedly anonymized, but some researchers from Princeton showed that with only four data points you could actually identify the individual that was associated with this particular cell phone. But they
What Do the World's Worst Leaders Have in Common?
"I were to ask you, what does Mao say tongue Hitler Mussolini? Stalin and Pol Pot, what do they all have in common? Now you might say, oh, they were all had some form of Marxist or totalitarian impulses. Yeah, that's true, but there's something else they have in common. There's something else that the most murderous members of the world community, the world leadership community, the 20th century, had in common, and each one of them did not believe at a fundamental level that the eyes of God were upon their actions and were judging them. They did not believe that there was a sovereign that there was a divine creator that was watching what they were doing. Now, interestingly enough, this is beautifully depicted in a film that I watched several times growing up and the main kind of message went over my head as I watched it. So Woody Allen film, it's not very well known. It's called crimes and misdemeanors. It's beautifully well done. Dennis prager agrees because he mentioned it in his speech. I was like, wow, that's so beautifully put. Where the whole idea is, how would you act if you did not believe that the eyes of God were upon your actions? And the movie basically makes the argument you would murder and get away with it. And that is the story of the 20th century. If you did not believe, if you did not at least that some idea had the fear that God was judging you or an idea of a God what would you do? So now we look at Davos right now. Klaus Schwab, Justin Trudeau. The heads of state from around the world. I must ask the question how many of the people right now in Davos that are talking about changing human beings as they are and transforming them, creating transhumans. How many of them that are talking about an insect diet? That's one of the things that you will own nothing and you will be happy. How many of them believe actually believe it? That not that they say it, but they believe it at a fundamental level that there is a creator that there is a divine that there is a transcendent force that is watching their actions. Now,
The Campaign to 'Re-Educate' Jordan Peterson
"I've been talking about cancel culture and James Madison. I now want to talk about the extension of the same cancel principle to the Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson. Not sure if you're familiar with Jordan Peterson. But Jordan Peterson sort of, you may say, emerged on the scene several years ago as a psychologist who was challenging a lot of the entrenched doctrines of the left. And specifically the whole doctrine that there are no such thing as men and women, there's no important distinction between the two sexes, people can be whatever sex that they choose to be. And Jordan Peterson was bringing a wealth of credentials of intellectual sophistication of understanding of human biology, but also understanding of human psychology, to you may say, call BS on this on this whole project. And it became kind of a sensation, not just because he was a critic of the work. But also because a lot of young men who themselves feel a little bit lost. They are a little confused. They hear all the stuff about manliness. And really what the left is doing is presenting a notion of manliness that's kind of unmanly, at least unmanly by traditional historical standards, and it leaves young boys who are growing up to be men a little befuddled. And so it was refreshing for them to hear. And so Jordan Peterson would he became almost kind of a rockstar. He'd go from you'd have these large speaking events, almost like they were put on by live nation or one of these tour groups and you'd have large numbers of young people, mostly male listening to him and kind of holding on to his every insight, then Jordan Peterson developed a kind of a serious illness. He withdrew, but now he's back and so and he's back in a big way on Twitter and he posted recently breaking the Ontario college of psychologists. Has demanded the I submit myself to a mandatory social media communication retraining with their experts for among other things retweeting and he names a guy who's a kind of a classical liberal and criticizing Justin Trudeau and his political allies.

Those are our top stories. Today marks 6 months since the war in Ukraine began 6 months that have changed the world upended the energy market and prompted fears of a recession in Europe amid surging inflation. Yesterday, European equities retreated to their lowest level in nearly four weeks as Euro area economic activity declined for a second month. Joining us now is Bloomberg intelligence as senior European equity strategist, Tim Craig had Tim good morning to you. Looking across European equities during the last 6 months, the 4100 is the one market that has been relatively stable. Where do you see its prospects now and how do you coach its upside and downside risks? Thanks for having me on. We published in those this morning looking at our continued share value scenarios as we would as we would term it. And the way we think about the FTSE currently is it's pretty close to fair value and as you said, it's been really remarkably stable. And that owes to the composition, I think we've discussed before from the standpoint of having a core commodity part of the index energy miners that have done well with high energy and metals prices with sanctions. It's got a big financial sector that's done well with rising interest rates. And if a global business that it's got with the likes of Staples and healthcare, et cetera, have benefited from a weak pound and all the current fee translation that comes back. So we see this at its core being relatively stable going forward. That said, if we all of a sudden miraculously have an easing with Russia, Ukraine and sanctions ease in China recovers very rosy scenario. We do see a better earnings outlook a better valuation and we see upwards of ten, 15% upside. We have the opposite can also occur if we really fall into a stagflation scenario and our work points to finally to put the maybe buckling with more than 20% downsides, but that's not the core forecast. Okay. What's your assessment though about the key earning drivers from here after a very strong showing for the first half results? What's the sort of resilience of the FTSE? Yeah, okay, this is one of the most interesting elements Caroline. If you look at oil prices and industrial metal prices, and I mentioned they're really important. Those have taken a breather, if you will, over the course of the last couple of few months, look at where bread crude is now treating. That doesn't immediately reflect into the foot these earnings that reflects in fixed to 9 months. If oil and metal stay where they currently are, is one of the reasons why the earnings outlook right now into 2023 does fall prey to very low earnings growth. Interest rates are also quite important and we have seen the ten year move back up. That's good for the financial sector all else being equal. And the United States, the pound just can't catch a bid. And to the degree that that continues to stay as these week levels that does give some offset to that metal and energy price pullback we've seen. So there's a number of interesting drivers right now. That are creating, I suppose you'd say sort of a static marines outlook, but it's not for lack of underlying volatility. Okay, Tim Craig had been broken intelligence as senior European equity strategist. Thank you very much for talking us through that Kylie and we're going to be talking a lot about this 6 months since Russia began their invasion of Ukraine later in the program.

Pastors Need to Be Talking About the Great Reset
"All of us here is you go back to your church. If you're a pastor, it's not openly talking about the great reset and the implications behind it, then they are not properly shepherding their flock. We did a whole conversation with Jack hibbs last week that has now been seen millions of times in just one week. Podcast and YouTube explaining what is the great reset. Just by background, there is an organization, an international organization called the World Economic Forum. They are outwardly secular, and they have 8 specific goals of what the how they want the world to look like by 2030. Let's just run by Klaus Schwab. You've heard the term globalist. I used it internationalist. The World Economic Forum is run by these group of people of celebrities world leaders, financiers, that do not want a strong America. They do not believe in Christian values, don't believe in Christianity at all. They want to deteriorated border and they want all these sorts of different things. If you look at the World Economic Forum run by Klaus Schwab, it is the tension point and the collision point with everything that we as Christians believe. Let me read some of their stated goals. By the way, Justin Trudeau, a manual Macron, Gavin Newsom, are all graduates of the World Economic Forum young leaders graduate program. Most Christians have no idea this is going on. Most Christians don't even consider this to be the threat that they are international forces that are trying to crush our civilization on our way of life. Number one of the great reset, they say, you will own nothing by 2030 and you will be happy. So let's just focus on that for a second. Not only will you own nothing, but you'll be happy. How totalitarian. They're going to tell us that we're going to enjoy owning nothing. Private property ownership
Justin Trudeau Says You Should Trust Your Government
"Cut 20, Trudeau says the MPs who vote against the emergency act indicate that quote, they don't trust the government to make incredibly momentous and important decisions. Obviously they don't trust the government, but the fact that they say that out loud and it's some sort of insult in Canada shows the different philosophy governing a country like Canada versus America. In America, not trusting the government is a huge part of one of our major political parties. We are naturally skeptical of centralized power and you should be. If you are embracing of centralized power, you hate history. Either you either hate it or you are ignorant, your intentionally ignorant of it. Big anything usually falls apart. Big anything is usually corrupt, the big UN, the big WHO, big China, big pharma, big Hollywood, big government, the big IRS, play cut 20. I can't imagine that anyone who votes no tonight is doing anything other than indicating that they don't trust. The government to make incredibly momentous and important decisions.

Rep. Cawthorn (R-NC): State Board Asserts Power to Suppress Voters
"Here he was last night cut 8. This is Madison Cawthorn appearing with Tucker Carlson on Fox News saying that this group of lunatics, these activists who are trying to invoke the Fourteenth Amendment and use some kind of North Carolina process to get somebody removed. I guess it's the Fourteenth Amendment. They get this, I guess it's a federal process to get somebody removed from the ballot, congressman Cawthorn says this group might just succeed. I can't think of a clearer assault on democracy itself than preventing voters from voting for the candidate of their choice. How close are they to preventing you from running for office? They are actually very close. Now what's going on in North Carolina is that the state board of election, a panel of 5 people is asserting that they have the ability to bar 740,000 plus Americans in my district from being able to elect me to send me to Washington to be their weapon to fight against the deep state. Why they're saying that this is a viable choice in North Carolina is because of the Fourteenth Amendment to the constitution. I'm sure that you were puzzled by as I was after following January 6th when they started saying that we were insurrectionists. Your seditionist, your traders. I thought they were just trying to get a flashy headline. But the reason they were trying to set this basis for fact is because they had a plan to execute a version of lawfare, hashed I'm sure by Mark Elias, the quarterback for a hijacking our lecture in 2020 to try and actually bar America first candidates from being able to hold office in 2022.

"Told that February 16th will be the day of the invasion We'll make it a day of national unity The relevant decree has been signed We will put out national flags put on yellow blue ribbons and we'll show our unity to the entire world Here's the thing his office later said it was meant to be a sarcastic comment about the rest of the world predicting a date for an attack by Russia Let's get to the latest with our reporter Bruce and Bruce sort of surprising comment at a very sensitive time Yes and as you pointed out his office quickly issued statements saying that he was being ironic Don't take him seriously Which reassured markets a little bit after a lot of jitters The significant thing that took place in Russia was president Putin had a meeting that he staged on TV with his foreign minister and his defense minister sitting at a very very long table with Putin found quite distant from the other two Of course it's COVID So they're keeping their distance from one another But in this meeting the foreign minister said that the west was going to talk with Russia about security guarantees that Russia has asked for the west has dismissed as non starters Russian demands about Ukraine never being allowed to join NATO that said the west has offered to talk about things that Russia does want such as missile restrictions And that's something that Vladimir Putin in this televised meeting said that he approved the idea of continuing those talks The other thing that happened in this meeting the defense minister said that some of the military exercises have already concluded others will end later the significant day to look forward to now is February 20th February 20th is the day that the exercises in Belarus are supposed to conclude And so the question will be then will the troops return to their barracks or will they stay on the border So we'll be looking to that Today the German Chancellor Schultz Schultz is scheduled to meet with Vladimir Putin so we might be getting some more news from the diplomatic effort to avert a crisis today Bruce thank you very much We'll be tracking that story throughout the day Bruce einhorn there with very little rush Ukraine Well to the impact on the market Citigroup say that oil prices could rise 10% if there's a Russian military action in Kyiv That's from the bank's global head of commodities and research we know and while it's at most Let's get to Steven stepinski He's in Singapore Steven we put on 208% yesterday on these comments from zelensky Now add more says the folly of conflict could add another 10% in a market which is delusional about OPEC plus supply You know absolutely I mean we're in the market right now that is tight We're in a market where OPEC plus is supposed to be adding supply to the market They're promising to add 400,000 barrels a day but they're not able to do that They're not able to meet those commitments In demand despite omicron it's showing that as having very little impact on demand folks are using cars gasoline demand is strong Inventories in the United States Europe other regions are getting drained pretty quickly So there's already this bullish sentiment in the market Add on top of this the geopolitical risk and you have quite a price premium If there is actually a conflict if Russian supplies of oil are cut off from the market that is going to have as these economists are saying and enormous impact on prices And that's why the market is watching this They're so closely and that's why when you hear leaders in the Ukraine saying something like that while it might be sarcastic the market reacts to that very strongly because that's how tight things are And that's how worried traders are at their desks as they try to figure out how to navigate these at the moment Stephen thank you very much for the analysis That's the steam industry that's there in Singapore Let's get to another important driver of sentiment in Asia That is a China Central Bank They've stepped up support for the slowing economy by pumping cash by a policy loans for a second straight month For more of this we're now joined by our chief economics correspondent for Asia

over coming months Juliette mentioned earlier they didn't change the one year lending rate but that is expected to come down over the months ahead possibly that march April time And I do speak to the idea that the economy remains under pressure to real estate sector we know slowing down the consumer continues to be dog by the outbreaks of Walmart car and of course the disruption that goes with that and there's some expectation that manufacturing will eventually cool this year And it also just drives home this idea that China's monetary policy really is diverging with the rest of the world Global markets of course are focused on fed tightening on those others who are typing but in China they are easing and all the signals are that they further eating still to go And thank you very much quick check in on the equity market You just seem we've pivoted from green into rad across the U.S. and Asian complexes obviously deeper into negative territory There you go you think you said it was vintage There's huge hedges out there by the way For 20% drop in the S&P 500 huge butterfly went through yes So let's have a look at Asia and the collapse there A lot of that could be to do with the iron ore movement the steel done by two and a half percent Yeah so JPMorgan wrote that investors pricing in several rate hikes this year equities are likely to fall single digit at first and stabilization expected about three months after the first hike we're counting down of course to some of the speculated dates and also the commentary from the Ukrainian president really underscored

They dropped their costing on a saturday after the debates. Yeah four weeks into the campaign. I mean they obviously don't give a shit about the costing and they were doing whatever they could to bury it now funny way. I don't think that was necessary because it's not as though they're creating a more dire fiscal picture than any of the other parties that are out there but they knew that this was not their strong suit. They knew they didn't want to be arguing. The specifics of sanctioned numbers and so they left it for The week before the election just so they could say they did it without sweating too much beyond that corey.

Air tools says by the thirtieth end of the month. If i become prime minister those flags will be raised. A little well proud of canada will get to work etc would. If you're a tool would you have gone with a bit. more riskier. sort of strategy here was less risky than what he just did or this. This was fine. This played needed to. What do you think. I think this was fine. Anything further than that and you really risk a. This is one of those issues that i suspect. There's a lot of canadians who will agree with our tool but know that they're not supposed to agree in polite company but the to go any further would really invite a conversation erin. O'toole is just not equipped to have when you looked at the reconciliation section of the debate. Right if you wanna take nothing else from the debate take this away. Which is justin trudeau is got pretty good. Command of this file and aaron tools. Answers deeply unsatisfactory. So i'm not sure that he wants to spend an awful lot of time about reconciliation. This does seem to be in notwithstanding. Justin trudeau's failures on this issue or shortcomings on this issue. This is very much more in his box than oh tools box. Carter same question to you. would you have gone for riskier. Perhaps more upside approach with o'toole less risky than what he put out there in terms of his stance to to raise flags by the month or or left to the same corey would suggest more. Risky i would. I would have said we're going to raise the flags fix the water. We're going to do it the day after we win the election. That'll be our priorities. We're gonna make sure that we're putting the water and we're gonna get core. He's making a face because he knows that they're not the fa- can't be done.

I great question. You know look. Canada is the best resource producer in the world. If you look it. What's called environmental social governance. I know you're familiar with this. Es g frameworks to sort of say are you looking at the environmental impact and mitigating against that social impact in including benefit agreements and participation from indigenous groups both directly impacted or supporting a large project in this overall governance theme rule of law human rights records. I think canadian resource producers whether they're oiling gas whether forestry mining minerals we are world leaders in the s g and in fact the duty to consult and engage with indigenous peoples developed now. For over a generation supreme court Jurisprudence has us at the forefront of making sure that resource development is done responsibly. You mitigate the impacts on the environment but also maximize the benefit for for indigenous communities and and direct stakeholders in a project. So this is where i think. The relaunch of the economy is key. And where i think. Igniting the indigenous economy and leadership is central. I i really do think. The justin trudeau has left. Canada more divided and less prosperous after four years of prime minister. Many of the ideological moves. He made actually hurt indigenous canadians. More then Other canadians if you look at the cancellation unilaterally of northern gateway pipeline for example. That was that was owned equity owned to a one third level by indigenous communities. No consultation with them on the cancellation of the project. I view that as a violation of the duty to consult.

Thanks so much for joining us Thank you so much for having me It's definitely an honor. Also with us is Isha Clark, an organizer and co founder of Youth versus Apocalypse of Climate Justice Organization. Welcome to Foreign. Be sure, Clark Thank you for having me And did I hear right? That yesterday was your 18th birthday. It was actually Saturday Saturday. Well, birthday. Thank you. Also with us is Michael Goffman, former vice chair of the California Federation of College Republicans and former student body president at UC Davis. He graduated last summer. Michael Kaufman, thanks so much for joining us as well. Thank you for having me. Well, Elizabeth Roaches and you got I'll start with you. First of all I want to know we were just talking with Nina role about the issues that matter, most to young voters. What issues mattered most to you? What? What is it that you would really like to see the Biden Harris administration focus on first? Yeah, I don't think it's much of that question. I completely agree with Nina when she said that racial justice was something that we definitely heard about this election. Additionally, I think something that really mattered to me was immigration, and I have not seen an administration be able to Try to address this issue systemically other than a bad administration with the current conversation he was having with DACA and other pathways to citizenship. And so that matter to me, the most alongside, of course, climate change. I think that is something that a young people are heavily driven with to address and seeing that Biden really cares and want to listen to young people and Listen to voters. I think that climate change is something I look forward to seeing addressed not just by rejoining the climate Paris Accord but by other means that he has talked about before. Um and override doesn't think uniting the country is what I look forward to a swell you should Clark as the organizer and co founder of as an organizer and the co founder of Youth versus the Apocalypse. Climate change, of course, is a real central issue for you. We know that immediately. Biden Imposed a moratorium on oil and natural gas leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. And as Elizabeth Roaches and Megan mentioned, rejoining the Paris climate agreement. Is this something that will be central what you'll be watching closely in terms of the way the Biden Harris administration operate? And would you like to see more as Elizabeth would Yeah. So the thing for me is that climate change is not just about climate. Because we are in this state of climate crisis because our country and our world frankly was built on top of a foundation of White supremacy and colonialism and patriarchy and economic exploitation. That's why we have climate change and so fighting climate change climate policy. Has to be about Completely re imagining the way that we exist on this planet and in our country. It's about the way that we treat people. It's about You know reparations for those who have been harmed by the systems that have created climate change. And so my hope for this administration and what I will continue to push them on every day of their administration is That we need climate policy in criminal justice, reform in immigration policy in our plans for health care, and all of these You know, big things that we're talking about. All of it is climate related. And with that being said, like If we don't have racial justice in this country, then we will not survive because we will continue to have climate crisis if we don't change the way that we treat people who are seeking asylum in this country. None of us will survive. If we don't make sure that people have access to the health care that they need. We will not survive and accept her. I could go on and on. So that is the way that I'm looking at this and that's my hope for this administration. Yes, And I think what I'm hearing and what you're saying you should Clark is is Not just the fact that it's brought an expansive and connected to everything, but that it takes. It'll take a lot more than this administration that it will take all of us. Exactly And, you know on that point I think what's really important for me to recognize and for others as well is like this win was a win for the people. Joe Biden and Kamila Harris are in office right now, because of the blood, sweat and tears of the people on the ground, who were organizing who got out of bed at six o'clock in the morning and make calls and made pamphlets and did all the things that we did to win that election that was barely free and fair. Because of all the voter suppression and Jerry man during in the electoral college And on top of that, you know we won the Senate so we cannot forget that. Elected officials are in their positions to serve the people, and we're the ones who put them in there, so we have to continue to push for what we need, regardless of who's in office. Michael Goffman. One of the things that I heard in terms of why you're excited for abiding presidency is because you'd like to just see some stable governance. What do you mean by them? What I meant when I said that more than anything, is that a return to What I would call traditional Government leaders will mean that most of the most important government rolls and functions are going to be filled out properly again. Have very serious disagreements with Biden's policy agenda, but Am excited that our departments and agencies of the government are going to be run responsibly and filled. Properly is really what I was touching upon with that particular point. What did the trump presidency teach you about democracy or what were your thoughts and feelings going through it? Because you're using the word sort of filled out properly. It sounds like you were feeling like the people who are in charge may not have been the right folks under in the Trump administration, in some cases, I think that last caveat is very important in some cases. I would say that In turn this argument repeating. Yeah, just what is it true what his presidency was like for you? Trump's presidency as a member of the Republican Party, right and what it taught you about our democracy. So in terms of of a member of as a as a member of the Republican Party, living through the past four years under the Trump presidency has been a very difficult It's been a very difficult time because it's been a matter of trying to balance Principles and My traditional Faith in democracy in this country and its leadership. And in my own conservative principles. Grappling with the fact that I had incredibly serious political policy. And personal disagreements and with the way that the president was running this country I had been in my time in the California Federation of College Republicans and as student body president at UC Davis. Out, spoken in my opposition with many of his policies. What it is. Tell me about our democracy in particular is that democracy is very fragile. We saw this. Just in this past few weeks, watching the events unfolded the capital and watching so many of these baseless conspiracy theories float through. Previously well respected news media around this country and through online forums with no respect for fact that have convinced a significant Portion of our population that this election was fraudulent and that the results of it are invalid. And I think it says a lot that the information that we're receiving is important. Conspiracy theories should not be ignored and should be tackled head on. And that an educated population must exist for democracy to continue to flourish. You know Elizabeth Russia's didn't you go Michael go often brings up.

"Change solutions. How does the U. S reposition itself as a global leader on climate action? The world's environment Correspondent Carolyn Beeler reports the Obama administration joined the Paris agreement officially in 2016 President Trump announced he'd pulled the plug the following year is the feeding that is like whiplash player. He only works on climate diplomacy at the European environmental think tank, the three G If one minute they're in than the out in the end, and that just undermines, I think trust and that they'll be able to do what they say they're going to do on a long term basis, and that's a problem. The Paris agreement is built. On trust and a healthy dose of peer pressure. It doesn't legally bind countries to cut planet warming emissions. So for the system to work, experts say, the U. S. Has to regain that important trust. Rejoining the Paris agreement is the bare minimum. This is former Colombian climate negotiator Isabel Cavalier, and there's a lot of expectation. On what will come with a big change in administration and policy. Cavalier says One of those expectations is about money. The U. S is part of the developed countries that committed under the Paris agreement to provide finance to developing countries Finance to help developing countries adapt to the impacts of climate change and switch to greener energy. The U. S is currently $2 billion short of a pledge it made during the Obama administration to a U. N green climate fund. Climate finance will definitely be one of the big expectations. That the developing world will be placing in the U. S is new administration. There's another big promise the world is waiting for a pledge for how much the U. S will cut carbon emissions in the next decade. Here's Claire Healy again. We're expecting a 2030 target, like UK and Europe have By how much is the United States going to reduce its emissions by 2030, the U. S. Said an older target under the Obama administration that it is now over shooting because the main policy aimed at meeting it was then reversed by the Trump administration. And here's that whiplash problem again to combat it, Healy says With the U. S needs is climate legislation. The UK has a climate law. The European Union is working on its climate law. If you couldn't legislate, then that signals to the world. This is more durable. It's not going to fall at the first political hurdle whether any legislation as possible in a closely divided Senate remains to be seen. Republican Senator Ted Cruz has already criticized but in for re joining the Paris packed but some domestic progress is essential for Biden to make good on his promise of becoming a global climate leader again. Especially when it comes to the relationship with China. Kelly Sims Gallagher is a professor of environmental policy at the Fletcher School at Tufts University. Before the United States can effectively engage with China. The most important thing is to get our own house in order. And we will need an intensive effort on domestic policy to be able to position ourselves to be influential in U. S foreign policy. It's about restoring American credibility on an issue that the U. S. And China used to work together on. I don't think it's possible for the world to get on track without joint leadership from the United States and China, but is already sending signals aimed domestically and abroad. He's created new, high level positions focused on climate change and appointed former Secretary of State John Kerry to one of them. Gen. Austin is a former State Department official. Establishing those very senior positions in the White House shows how higher priority it's gonna be. Austin has experience as a U. S climate negotiator. She says. Buy in from the very top helps diplomats get their jobs done. It's not only that there's a few senior climate leaders, it's that climate has shown up as an issue in the discussions around nominations for the leadership of the whole bunch of important departments. As President Biden starts making phone calls to foreign leaders tomorrow, Climate change is expected once again to be on the agenda. For the world. I'm Carolyn Beeler. In Baghdad today to suicide bombings ripped through a crowded market. At least 32 people were killed and dozens more wounded. It had been more than three years since Baghdad faced the suicide bombing like this, this attack comes obviously on the first full day of the Biden presidency. We wanted to look at how his administration is going to approach Iraq and what changes in U. S policy we might see Abbas Kadhum is director of the Iraq initiative at the Atlantic Council obviously just won't understand First of all, how head Iraqis been feeling prior to the attack and What does today's horror change for them? It is sad news to see this done Wake up in the morning to for this kind of news, but also to budget and perspective. It is an indicator that this isn't anomaly. This is abnormal. But that has for a long time has bean safe and but never really completely immune to any kind of security incidents like these. I'm really curious to know your thoughts on just what President Biden is facing in Iraq. If you had to cut characterize the situation that he's inherited their what would you say? Are the problems still fundamentally connected to Washington and So what's by his responsibility to the government in Baghdad? The past administration has left some challenges on the security and also on the political fronts and the Iraqi US Iranian conflict that has manifested itself mostly on Iraqi soil has been a big challenge for the Bilateral relations. Having a U. S Iraqi policy that is attached to the U. S. Iran Iran policy has been a problem for for the U. S Iraqi relations. I think the couple ng least two policies would help, and this would be probably an advisable thing for it here by the administration to do Obviously not. Everyone in Iraq wants a continued U S presence there. Can you talk a bit about the fault lines that exist within Iraqi politics and how various militias there are exerting pressure on the U. S to leave in a significant way. Well, this isn't a problem, not just for the United States. It's a problem for the Iraqi government, often in my my commentary say that Iraq is need to have an Iraqi Iraqi dialogue regarding their nature on dish ape of the U. S. Iraqi relations, of course, marked off what the problems that the Iraqi government is facing is because there are many entities and Iraq that have alliances, regional alliances with Iran with Saudi Arabia, Turkey and other countries. In the region on those relations and the meddling of this country's in Iraqi affairs, mostly by proxies through Iraqi actors do hindered the Iraqi government ability to adopt a logical relationship with the United States and logical approach to the U. S. Iraqi relations. There is a big worry, though, that with elements of Isis slipping quietly back into towns and cities across Iraq, that they've been pushed from their now regrouping s O. Do you think today's attacks signifies a return to the violence that we witnessed? At the height of Isis is power in Iraq acts like those disturb the peace. They keep the population and just the Iraqi government needs to appreciate its approach towards combating terrorism right now, by putting more emphasis on prevention on intelligence capabilities on but also keep the security forces well prepared on performing to the best of their abilities. It is not a disheartening this strategic problem, but certainly it is a tragic reminder to us that terrorism is a fact oflife or just in Iraq, but everywhere else. Abbas Kadeem is the director of the Iraq initiative at the Atlantic Council in Washington. Thank you very much for speaking with us today. Thank you very much. President Biden wasted no time redecorating the Oval Office, one prominent edition behind the Resolute Desk, a bust of the civil rights and farm labor leader Cesar Chavez. Explain. The symbolism of this is Ricardo Sandoval. He's the public editor at PBS and along with his wife, fellow journalists isn't Farris, the author of the Fight in the Fields, Cesar Chavez and the Farm Workers movement. So it seems. Every time President Biden it will be sitting at his desk. We'll see that image of Cesar Chavez behind him. How significant is this? And what was your reaction When you saw it? It represents Biden's commitment to a community that I think helped him. Tremendously during this last campaign, you know, he is closely allied.
