The Lancet medical journal revealing Russia Sputnik v Corona virus vaccine has been deemed to be safe and effective results from a late stage trial. We found the two dose vaccine has a 92% efficacy against symptomatic Cove in 19. Mike theoretically know if Arizona ran out of all other vaccines. Would you take the Russia vaccine yet? Not a chance. No, I'm not taking a Russian vaccine. Who said I'm fine. Hey, does yes, he does. The former KGB agent says it's fine. I'm in eighties kid. The Russians were our enemy. When I was a kid, Reagan talked about the Russians. Am no offense to anybody out there. I am not believing a thing that Putin says and knew the people that wouldn't taken American vaccine in their arm would take a Russian vaccine in their arm. Are you kidding me? Not a chance.

British double agent George Blake dies in Russia at 98

"President of Russia. Vladimir Putin has paid tribute to the notorious Cold War spy George Blake, who died in Moscow aged 98. Mr Putin described him as an outstanding professional. Blake was a Soviet double agent working the British Secret Service. Here's Gordon Correra. George Blakes. Treachery did enormous damage betraying agents, summits thought to their deaths, as well as operations, like the tunnel built by the British and Americans under Berlin to spy on Soviet communications. He showed the KGB could run agents deep in the heart of the British state. Creating distrust in Washington on his escape from prison compounded the national embarrassment. A decade ago. I asked Blake if he would explain why he did it. It's no longer of particular importance to me whether my motivations are generally understood or not, he replied.

"I looked at the corner of my eyes I saw Sergei wince because KGB employees warned supposed to have their picture taken. He couldn't say no. So this is the only picture that I have and I think it wound up in the book where it's me Sergei where the picture was taken by her husband. So somewhere in Soviet Russia, someone's going holy crap. There's a picture of my dad with this guy says, he's the KGB's by my dad worked at a shoe factory. What's doing in there? That's A. Possibility. Love the guy. I. Wish I could meet him again I. Wonder What happened to him. He was a genuinely nice person just like me. You know he had bought into the ideology Hook Line and sinker I. Wonder what happened to him because it was so much easier for me to shed my baggage because I lived here and I was able to gradually move away from the nonsense that I was taught in my youth but to people like him, it was like boom. Soviet. Union. No more Communist Party. Fringe Party and what we got now is an oligarchy. which is not any better than. Before. But the whole ideology is gone the fellowship still be alive I'm wondering what happened to him. I wonder if any of the sort of fellow spy espionage geeks listening to this, have any idea how to get a hold of people who used to be in those nieces. Knows there's probably some clubs in the former Soviet Union, especially, Russia where KGB guys hang out and drink beer until war stories and who knows I mean if they know that that is in the book, they might be able to say, Hey, is in this very, very possible. The guy's still around I, mean he's probably just your age is my age A. Secret ended anonymous maybe they exist have not been contacted. The thing is we know one another only by first name and I would like to add that was very strong likelihood that the first name was phony. Now he knew my first name, but I don't know if I know his first name wasn't a cover name I was introduced to many many other folks. Indicate to be on the my one of my covenant, which was Bruno and my official cover name by which might the records were kept was. The I. E. T. E. R. R. Yeah. So figures out when somebody says, my name is so and so as I okay. What my name is that and then you go on because it doesn't matter right so course. Sergei. Just basically the named John in Russian essentially so common that it would be impossible to pull it out. So of course, I'm sure. You're right. It probably was a name in some way. Now when you're learning to be a spy when you're learning to be an espionage undercover agent here, your had a lot of counter surveillance training and drills tell us about how you were trained. It seems like they were chasing me through town and things like that. Super Interesting. Yeah I mean, this is what? People. Think about espionage what it's like to work on the cover. This is as close to how it's portrayed in the media as possible. Even though what you see in the media is just like false in its execution and I guarantee you it even nowadays if somebody wants to know whether they're being observed, being followed, they need to do what I did. Because there are not enough cameras in the world yet that can be marshalled to follow somebody to know what they're doing. It took phenomenal amount of time for me just to find the right places to visit the right route to Moscow to determine what I was being followed in every month I had one exercise where like on a Sega evening before a second. Would call me and says I tomorrow nine o'clock to go. So then I leave my apartment and I go on a three hour trip for town. You know visit all kinds of public places, shocks, possibly a museum by a ticket at a theater and you do all kinds of things that one could do even though nobody in their right mind would do. All of this but at least there's no proof. It may be odd. But if somebody follows you, there's no proof that you're doing something that intelligence officers would be doing. So and the whole idea was to then get to spots where somebody has to get close enough. So you can see him. So my ability to recognize faces was very important because if they. Don't get close enough than they lose you and even though I typically had between eight and ten people on my tail even though they would switch places all the time they ran out of switches. So to speak and when I got to a point where I saw the same face again I know that I was being followed. So that's I wrote my. Report they were there and it was sometimes was interesting to get the report that they wrote because you know I realized. Oh I missed dot one I missed that one but ultimately, I was never wrong the ultimate score and these were like highly trained professionals but the ultimate goal was me like ten nothing but one thing I would like to share with the. Audience, which was really interesting. One Guy got. Caught he knew that he was too close I saw him and he did something that is the ultimate diversionary tactic he came up to me and ask before light. I never thought that he was one of Sevilla's group. So well, dot paid compliment right? Because he did the opposite of what you would think which is he was supposed to Bono saw me I'm supposed to duck out of sight or pretend the JIG is up instead he walked up and said, Hey, do you have a lighter and he thought Oh, well, this can't be him because he's right in my face. Absolutely. As I said, these were professional I know that because there were the teams that would be deployed to follow American diplomats or high level visitors from the West they were army. So then but the guy who was in charge of these groups I worked with him individually, he was a master of disguise discussed in the book..

Russia moves to protect Putin from prosecution

Monocle 24: The Briefing

Russia moves to protect Putin from prosecution

"We start in russia. Where the duma has backed a bill which grants the country's rulers and their families immunity from criminal prosecution after they leave office and it has set tongues wagging about president putin's political future putin's allowed to stand for two more terms in office when his current stretch ends in twenty twenty four. But is there any need for him to do so if he can retire sooner without fear of prosecution or we're joined for more on this by the russia analyst and regular monocle twenty four contributor. Stephen deal welcome back to the briefing. Stephen always good to hear from you. Tell us it's funny if we if we look back. I don't know a quarter of a century almost now to the sort of an days a of yeltsin now was lots of talk about potential prosecutions and of course putin Gave him immunity as soon as he took over. Is that something Will be very much john on. Putin's mind as well right now. I'm sure his the yeltsin when he stepped down on the thirty first seven nine hundred ninety nine the one thing he'd been looking for in that second term since he's been president since the middle of ninety was someone who would guarantee him immunity from not only him in fact his his blood family and also his wider political family immunity from prosecution for the rest of their lives and the very first decree of then acting president vladimir putin on the last day of ninety thousand nine when he took over as acting president was to grant yeltsin and his coterie fact that immunity and on one thing. We're surprised that this hasn't been done before. But if you think back much closer to to where we are now this year of course we were talking about putin being being able to be president for the rest of his life because of course they changed the constitution earlier this year in russia and it means that the is white cane he can stand again for president in two thousand and twenty four and then if he wants to he can stand again in twenty thirty. They've overturned the previous idea. That president couldn't have more than two consecutive terms. But what this does. I think this is even more significant than and giving him that. Johnston president for life. It means that truly fall ill or something then. This means that he can. He can step down and not be prosecuted at the moment. The russian president compu- prosecuted while he's in office but until this is passed he can be prosecuted if he if he were down. Well it's really interesting statement. I guess it's sort of fun to speculate in a way. What appeals to vladimir putin most is it to just stay in office To sort of become superannuated president be there for decades as it will turn out or is he more concerned about protecting as you said his nearest and dearest and in the immediate coterie from from what we understand and we know about him. What do you think is most appealing to him. In the here and now is the consolidation. Is that endurance that longevity or do you think he'll be drawn to just melting away into the shadows. The shadows putin is someone who doesn't really have friends. He doesn't really trust anyone. That's his whole background as a street ladd in petersburg when he was growing up and even more so when he was kgb officer and so what he feels is that he he can never be sure he always reminded of sort of you know to broussais. And julius caesar and and that that to me is where putin stands that. He's always afraid that someone were to step down. Someone might change things and then drawing prosecute him and there's a number of things that they might want to prosecute for most not be now if we thinking well it's got to be after he's president. What does the state of the russian economy at rome. It's pretty awful. There are some very few at the top who are just unbelievably wealthy. Russia has nine thousand nine billionaires in the country at a time when thirty eight percents of the country at least according to official fingers are living below the poverty line. Russia is still very much dependent on oil and gas. And it's very interesting today. We have the news. That britain is saying no more petrol cars with diesel cars from twenty thirty. You know the world is going away from those fossil fuels and russia's not really doing anything about it and rushing. Business is is is not in a good position and so you know you could say one of his worst legs could be the state of the economy if you want to choose to step down but if this is passed in the duma has has given it its nods so far it has to go to the federation council. The house and then ironically putin himself would have to sign it off which. I have no doubt he would do. I mean i just wonder what do Russian pro democracy activists Putin's opponents have to say about the sorts of moves. Stephen because presumably there would be appetite in certain limited quarters to say look. We can't have a situation where people are protected in perpetuity from their alleged misdeeds. Particularly if it's a question of. I don't know following the money this sort of thing. Do you think that there will be a a counter. Lobby is ernie president to being able to sell it. We can review these These rulings down down the track or is that just a nonstarter. Right now is a non-starter. The doom is heavily stacked with putin supporters. Then indeed the federation council houses to. There's being talk over the is of of election. Rigging putin generally has a lot of popular support out in the country not so much in moscow some of the other big cities but those who are in power now would definitely know passes laura have no doubt it will become more and because what putin were he say to foil in five years time and so having been reelected in twenty four finally can't carry on steps down if this law is not in place then what frightens him is the idea. Is that in fact with. He's the hub of the wheel and he's taken out. Then we'll spokes collapse will then a real opposition which does exist. but it's very small and sat on very hard when it raises his voice. That actually stopped means something in which case could be a threat of prosecution. So he's he's trying to cover every base. I think it's very interesting that this is come on top of the idea that he could serve the rest of his life. This gives him the get out. I'm not well or on board. I want to step down. But i can still be secure. Won't be prosecuted prompts. The question stephen wh what does any eventual succession. Like i appreciate this. Very very speculative and it could be twenty four. It could be twenty thirty indeed but do we have any better sense of what putin's own Mission is you know he. He wouldn't want to melt into the shadows of you as you suggested but is there any hints of sort of you know a dynastic succession or do you think he's more interested in in the here and now i wonder if we can speculate even about what happens after he takes his hand from the tiller right now to be honest tom. I wouldn't want to name a name. Because i have no doubt that he will stand again. Twenty twenty four. So we're looking ten years since two twenty thirty two elections after that and because he can't stand again if he's still in good health and he's generally a fit man he's you know he's still does his judo and he's sixty eight years old now. But as we've seen in america being in your late seventies doesn't preclude you from standing for president so if he carries on fit. Well no reason why in twenty thirty he wouldn't stand again so you know. There's a whole generation of politicians would come up behind him. Then they may be the ones that maybe twenty thirty six fact we may be looking at three. Fold as a israel change. I'm if there is a change. Before that i can't really see it happening if health matters. Don't intervene before two thousand thirty so really as standing where we are now looking ahead. Ten years that famous phrase in brisbane week is a long time in politics. Ten years off it on.

Will Joe Biden be the Food Tech President?

"We're here for another editorial podcast. We're gonna go around the horn. We have with this gin marston jen. Hello chris albrecht are you. I'm good how you doing mike. I'm doing well. I feel like today's this week is a little more relaxing than last week. Which i know about you guys kept hitting refresh. My browser to get news. Don't have to do that this week. just a little bit of a relief on that regard but the the food tech news is actually pretty hyper active this week and i feel like there's been like three or four stories around mcdonald's in the new plant beefburger alone chris the mkx plant. Can you tell what's going on with that dude. I have no idea. It's kinda crazy. So they announced yesterday they had some investor virtual investor day. today were recording on tuesdays. This was monday suddenly like. Oh we've got this thing called plant. So this is a notable for a few reasons. One of which being mcdonald's has sort of sat out here in the us anyway on the plant based burger craze so whereas burger king introduced impossible whopper last year and white castle has it's impossible sliders and even burger king had an upper. Kfc had dipped its toes in with some pilots on plant based chicken. You hadn't heard anything from mcdonald's than they had run some tests with something. They called the plt eighties. Kid makes me think of pyti but the plt up in canada which they did in conjunction with beyond. Now here's where it gets interesting. Because in the announcement yesterday they said. Hey we're making this plant Which on its own makes you want to say macpoilin for those people who watch the it's always sunny in philadelphia the The so this mc plant burger is coming next year But they didn't say who what they said. Actually they said developed Culinary team made by mcdonald's for mcdonalds so hearing that was like okay. they're making their own. They tried beyond didn't do what they wanted to do. So they're making their own and then a lot of people reported this right so beyond stock took a tank took a dive yesterday. Because they're like. Oh you're not be doing it for mcdonald's and then mcdonald's came around and said oh actually you know actually rephrase this so mcdonald's center around a clarification and let me just because this gets crazy so their pr person sent me calms team. Sent me an email saying in the same way. Mcdonalds has not run its own farms. We are not manufacturing plant based meat for the client platform notice. It's a plant for platform about a food We will rely on our suppliers the third leg and mcdonald's three legged stool blah blah blah blah blah. Right then it says mc beyond meat was our testing partner for the plt plant based burger in canada and we have not announced which suppliers we will work with on mcclymont so clear as mud like cagey cage. Yeah well and then beyond came out yesterday and said hey actually. We co created the plant and You know they were but that was on their own call. Mcdonald's didn't say anything about it right so The but beyond said beyond meat and mcdonald's co created the plant based patty which will be available as part of mc plant platform. But they don't say going forward. That beyond meat is the supplier right. So this may sound muddled because it we're still trying to figure sort through the news it does sound like there may be implying it but there's no definitive i did I think you may be posted in the slack. The picture of the beyond beyond meat stock in lewis. One of those pictures were it. Went off a cliff around eight. A m and win. There's a curfew Around at all of a sudden jumped back up like it was a huge like And so i. I don't understand the kgb's mcdonald's wants everyone to think that they do everything themselves. But like we know they don't grow their own potatoes or simply naito they. We know that they work with the we know they don't own a cattle. The work with farmers wasatch secretiveness. I i don't have. They ever co branded a burger before I don't think so no so. I mean that you could say that for anybody like i don't have white castles. That are burger. King has ever done that but you know they look at impossible. Burger right with the impossible Beyond the big. Doesn't i mean burkey has impossible right rapper. And and i guess from mcdonald's perspective maybe thinking well there's not a lot of differentiation if like all of a sudden a bunch of other fast food restaurants are having beyond meat in their burgers I think maybe they just wanna claim that it's uniquely felt for them I don't know other than that. I can't really feel why. I mean i think then possible walker was developed. Fairly uniquely for them. I mean it. Has that weird kind of gross x-ray on like that a grill taste or that flame royal tastes that his uniquely burger king. Impossible has Which makes me think they've spray somewhere chemical on it but But i i get it and by the way mc plant can we just discuss the name a little bit like myself walked in. He goes dead. Mcdonald's has a new plant burger called mc plan because he goes. I started laughing. How dumb the now. This is my teenage son. So yeah it's not playing well the number that it is has it said. It's like so absurd. You can't forget it

"kgb" Discussed on Spies of London

"Did try to kill US cripples that purpose in doing the interview of cost to the opposite. So the fact that the VR never hits the news or at least not the mainstream news is perhaps one sign of success. One thing the research for this episode has shown me that the VR is very, well worth research is worth coming back to in a future episode and it does pay to get better acquainted with what they are trying to do because they are the closest to my sakes in the CIA of all of the Russian agencies therefore. Given that mix and CIA to that hit the news and hit the James Bond Film. So often in fiction that perhaps the ESPN should be better known than it is so I will be looking in more detail in a future episode out the SVR. So I've just got time for the final factoid before taking a closer look at the book for those people who thought that the Cold War ended when the USSR collapsed in the early nineties have a look at, Aldrich Ames who was charged in February nineteen ninety four with providing highly classified information from nine, hundred, ninety, five to the Soviet Union and Russia. It is believed that the information he passed let the execution of. Nine US agents in Russia in April of Nineteen, ninety, four, he and his wife pleaded guilty to espionage and tax evasion, and he was sentenced to life in prison without parole solo that spy starts in ninety five. He was active through the fall of the USSR on the Berlin Wall and as list here on Wikipedia of spies who were arrested during the nineteen ninety S, and in two thousand one Robert Philip Hanssen was arrested for spying for the Soviet Union for more than fifteen years out of twenty seven that he served with the FBI. So the Cold War never ended. Okay. So it's now time to handover to Paul for the review of the new spies by James Adams. Thanks Paul. So this book by James Adams, this is the paperback edition of James Adams from Nineteen ninety-four but Adams, himself claims that he takes him about three years to write a book. So it was certainly being evolved and researched as the wall was coming down and Gorbachev was being replaced by Yeltsin, and that fails these names to me feel like a different universe almost. Okay. So I was a teenager back in the. Early, nineties, but everybody felt like the fall of the wall in particular the dismantling of the USSR. So soon after it meant that the Cold War was over I think that that is the assumption that everybody made who was outside of this world. The book starts with a look at Tash Trees, which I've mentioned in the early factoid there a red brick mansion that was used entertain spies from behind the Iron Curtain and. After the curtain collapsed. It was opened up to people like James, atoms, western journalists, and intelligence agents to come and talk and see how things have changed to say that this kind of complex which was built in nineteen seventy-two by a Finnish architect and dominated by twenty two story main building was being dismantled but even here months after the fall of the USSR atoms claims that the buildings of tennis trees had an air of k the. Guardhouse a single wooden structure looks like a relic from Stallard Loft. Any size this in chapter one how times have changed five years ago the KGB had an army of three hundred thousand men kept files on millions of Soviet citizens absolute power to enforce. One of the most ruthless tyrannies ever seen three, hundred, thousand staff that dwarfs anything Britain ever had I'm pretty sure it dwarfs anything Britain combined with America ever had it was genuinely a secret. Police force which had informers in every avenue. Every corner of the USSR somebody claimed that there was no part of the world that had never been visited by somebody from the KGB and I think that's probably true to an extent at least in the places that were interested in any way. So in this time period way short time period form head of the CIA we're going to ten ashtrays and Russia talking to people in Moscow. One of the directors of the Sismi Sakes were going flying into hungry fly into East Germany Russia trying to lobby I suppose the former KGB to become more open, more transparent, more westernized but such a history of cultural spying and snooping was never going to disappear within five minutes and as I've just said there about the VR, it was the mid nineties. The legal framework was still being agreed and by nineteen ninety nine when Putin came along. I think he reversed pretty much everything that he could as quickly as he could. So James Adams feels privileged in sitting in Moscow with the head of the former. KGB and I think he was I cannot imagine that conversation happening today items felt thrilled and privileged to be allowed into the former KGB officers and to talk to people and to get the lay of the land it seems to me he was one of the optimists so. By page six, he admits that there were believers and skeptics the latter the skeptics argued that the Russian I was very much alive and a military coup or even take over orchestrated by the former KGB could see the communists revert to type today. So by nineteen ninety, four, the skeptics have either left or been forced revise their thinking as the reforms of proof to last longer than expected so I think some people expected the reforms to last. Literally five minutes, but three or four years after the coup the reforms were still ongoing and going in the right direction as the believers would see it. But now he says although the skeptics the real hard liners left, the community has divided between the true believers and the cynics who claimed that much of the old intelligence structure remains an has to be said from twenty twenty s perspective. The cynics correct there is absolutely no question about. that. Perhaps, some of the skeptics of returned the group of cynic say the KGB may have changed its name and its missions but we'll remain active against Western interests for the foreseeable future particularly in the former Soviet republics and immediately Belarus springs to mind. I bought this book as an optimist. I was very excited by the possibilities of the United Germany we had grown up in the eighties with the risk and the threat of nuclear war government. Films that were air-raid tests on a regular basis we were conditioned to believe that life on earth could be stopped within seconds at any moment, and although I didn't particularly by that because this idea of mutual showed destruction was meant to access tarrant and I think the Cuban missile crisis as long ago as the sixties shows that it did act as a deterrent people even in Russia were. So terrified of the possibilities of nuclear war that even the Russians even the USSR did. Not Stoop. So low and of course, famously only the West has ever detonated a nuclear bomb in anger in Japan. So we were growing up through the with fear of electricity being turned off every five minutes, coal strikes and shortages nuclear war. There are no doubt that the parents of that time were more terrified than the kids but for that to be switched off virtually overnight with the fall of the wall and the collapse of the art seemed like a massive story a massive. Event certainly as big as corona virus or the financial crash or any kind of hurricane or soon army. My Bait was a massive massive thing and for James Adams of professional journalists to write this book, hit the ground at the right time. The majority of people were optimists I've already said in a previous episode that John Kerry and some experts were never ever of the mind that the threat was finished from Russia, it was just regrouping evolving and they've been shown to be. Correct I feel that James was optimist back in the early nineties perhaps because he went there first hand and spoke to these people and realized they were just humans like everybody else. He wanted to believe that they had changed their approach and they did try I believe that until nineteen ninety nine Russia was very much desperately trying to modernize and join the international community if you like. But Times change attitudes, change people change and I'm certain now that the FSBA GRU if not the. VR have taken many many steps back towards their Kub past I'm not saying that this is good or bad true tried to be objective. Clearly. I. Don't agree with the script Nevada assassination attempts and I think that Russia should not pretend to be democratic I think if you're going to have elections, they should be free. In fact, there is their right to not hold elections. But if they hold elections, they should be fair wants and that goes for America as well as Russia. Democracy as we all know, he's a terrible idea but it's the least terrible idea that anybody's ever come up with for running a country and you should try everything you possibly can to be objective unbiased allow the elections in the votes to be counted properly. Clearly, that's not what is happening in the East right now there's been tensions in Ukraine Crimea Belarus. Now, we are a long way from Russia reestablishing the US saw, but we have a lot closer to that than we were. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, four. So I think James is an excellent rate. I really enjoyed it when I read it in the nineties I was on the side of the optimists. Then I was only a teenager I. Am now on the side of the cynics and the skeptics who would can see what is happening with chemical weapons assassination attempts political kidnappings, interrogations, fearmongering targeting paypal's families, and friends, and colleagues to try and silence them. This is a very dark time for many people. In many parts of the world, and this is where it becomes harder to stay detached because I didn't give talking about specific spies like Gordon Lonsdale back in the fifties is easy after fifty or sixty years to treat them in a somewhat academic and something's going on right now with is still in hospital Russian elections taking place Bellarusse in a big state Lebanon a big mess that becomes harder to detach, and it really tests your commitment to object vets and all the rest of. From this that I'm fighting that on a daily basis I, think you've got somebody being a dictatorship pretending to be a democrat dot is bad news for the people of their country and for everybody else in the world as well. Okay. So the book reviewed. So the book we reviewed in this episode was the new spies exploring the frontiers of espionage by James Atoms published.

"Welcome to Spies of London. This episode is a book review of the illegal by Gordon Carrera from the BBC the hunt for a Russian spy on a post-war London and it's about the Spy Gordon Lonsdale Gordon. Lonsdale was a Canadian man who came to Britain by ship. He told everyone had been born on the 27th of August 1924 in Ontario Canada in reality. He was Conan meladi born in Moscow. Now, I've come across God in Lonsdale many times. He was easily one of the best and most Professional Russian spies operating in Britain at any time. He was known to me because he was involved in a prisoner swap without wanting to give you too many spoilers as he was highly valued by the KGB and he met George Blake in Moscow and George Blake & Garden Lonsdale were betrayed by the song. So some people suggest that if they hadn't been portrayed particular Lonsdale might never have been discovered by the time he was discovered clearly his super deep secret undercover of work which involved him taking on this Canadian identity living in Britain away from his young family was taking its toll and more than that as with so many of the best writers when Lonsdale go back to Moscow. He started to compare it to what he'd seen in the west and realized that the West Was better. I was richer more exciting more interesting more. Make more fun and he had serious alcohol problems, but there were a few details about Lonsdale which intrigued me and I have to say I thought God unless there was a man name

Tens of thousands of people rally against Lukashenko in Belarus

"Where Can Belarus President Turn Now? Thousands of people were back on the streets protesting this weekend still angry at what they believe was a rigged presidential election President Lukashenko who claimed as he returned to power with an eighty percent approval rate responded by flying over the protesters wearing riot gear with a rifle slung from his shoulder. Well, drained over is L. Editor of Belarus Anna Leasing at the University of Brain and I'm delighted to say she joins us on the line now Auger a very warm welcome to monocle twenty four. These absolutely bizarre scenes of President Lukashenko yesterday. Well. Yes. I was actually also quite as to see you know him banning public with a gun and also his fifteen year old son campaign him so to say so it's the definitely assigned for me that he he's kind of knocked children confidence in front of the people who through testing by his residence, and it's also not you know not that Jerry. Addict from me because the protest is peaceful, protesters will not trying to receive this residents in the state needs. said the wall spread the information that there was some attempt to seek the? Residency so it's quite an emotional psychological reaction from him. I would say and will. Nobody. that. So it's also very strong sign that there is now readiness of from from the official from the state site for any kind of luck that you know this new to build coordination committee by Dehaan Oscar and she team is is trying to do initiate and I think everybody most notably people. In Belarus itself have been absolutely taken aback by the brutality of the reaction by the the Lauren forces to the protesters and the fact that Alexander Lukashenko was was dressed up in riot gear suggests that he doesn't have anywhere to go other than a violent approach. Yes I would also I would also expects it. You know what targeted repressions and they're ready started last week and they continued this week. So what what would serve now is definitely not base wave of unprecedented repression that we. Saw Three days and nights after the elections but still there are targeted repressions and against. Most active people are also criminal case has been initiated against the newly built coordination committee and people. People are invited to some talks with KGB officials until also people actually also bill will try to strike there actually threatened. By the direction openness of the state owned enterprises that they would lose their jobs and so on. So observe already targeted pressure on people, but this wave is still not to the tide because you know. So what international reaction was so the state drives, you know just show from the one handed, it's not ready for the data from the one hand there is the rest of. You know not not to let this protests spread. Within the country how much do you think that's what the foreign observers of said about what's been happening in Belarus for the last couple of weeks is actually forming any decision made by Alexander Lukashenko at the moment. Well I think that it will quite an important aim has been achieved ready and that we actually we have understood that he's not legitimate within the society right within the boat society and I think also problem was that he really did not understand that. Shortly after the elections or before the elections so and. Actually. I think that the reaction was not is at least that. He and his circles really have the distended. Okay. He doesn't have any majority in society, but it has not led so far to his readiness for dialogue just in the all the way he kind of supports the security structures in internal, Misteri Ministry and actually he even gave you know about three hundred medals to those who are actually responsible of for for this incident violence. So he kinds of stresses that the security two structures military is. Actually the most important pillar his powerful for now for the moment, the Steve Kerr show is joining us now he's policy and advocacy. Directorate. Freedom from torture and author of St Spirit Steve. Welcome. Thanks for joining us. Hey On monocle twenty, four Olga a moment ago mentioned the fact that the secret police is still called the KGB I mean, what does that say about the level of influence at Russia's still has in terms of the way that Belarus's going and whether Russia just going to sit this out. Yes I mean I either it reflects influence of Russia, which is August is certainly, very great or it's just almost bizarre retro element to to better under Lukashenko. He doesn't mind thinking in those terms I think it is going to be. So Russia will certainly be an important factor and but at the same time Mosca really doesn't want to be. Getting, further involved in in a very direct since that's going to be difficult for Russia as well. So I think that Lucas. Is playing a very difficult game. If he was giving small confessions, I think he might have some a little bit more success in some homage to blunt things but so far at least the violence has had absolutely opposite effective people become more and more angry the fear obviously quite rightly the last Sunday was absolutely crucial. I would argue that the US huge threats of on ahead of Sunday hoping that people. Would back off and stay at home and actually it was a big rally than ever. So not particular face off. There's no question that Lukashenko loss what happens next we'll still see I'll steve has suggested that Sunday was a pivotal moment some people waiting for what is described as a tipping point when an event causes things to go one way or the other would you say that Sunday was part of that? Tipping Point. Demon this Sunday last Sunday. To Sunday. The Sunday. Just gone when tens of thousands of people came out onto the streets to set by a threat the first Sunday directly after the elections. Yes. I it just completely I mean people never any. Okay. What we're talking about batteries and Ballard who's says, Chris it's not the first Sunday that actions pulses side will have to admit that it also not to the extent that people actually being tortured eating the prisons will have also. took a beast fag, but it's for the first very time that such vast majority of people. So it with their own is is of their families or friends in stone. So you can imagine how many are nets were the strategy when they're where our seven seven thousand arrests. So it's it's quite a big part of the country said it's really I would agree it had an opposite effect and it's also for the first time that you know this special. GRANITZ or gas or a also rubber bullets on there were actually used against own population. It never existed in the history of Belarus in October election protests, people widget shocked and I think it was a shock from the both sides because the state net expected to such mass protest before also before three weeks before the elections would be solved by. About two to five or even six percent of local population came to to railways with Hannele. It's also unprecedented thing was kind of shock from both sides and of course, people people were also by this eighty percent because nobody really believes that anymore I mean. People also really did not quite believe that before I, would say people heading out some kind of feeling that president steelhead had a majority maybe not eighty percent maybe fifty five, maybe sixty but this feeling was there and this style with completely different. So quiet in Jersey, you know quite a big part even I think I would say the majority of people just didn't believe that he actually has any kind of fifty plus and that was the problem that we still have this eighty percents I think people would just. People were just humiliated by that of course, activate shortly afterwards by this unprecedented wave refreshing stave when we look to the further history of batteries, which is being written right now when considering what sort the former eastern bloc countries of have seen in the last three decades. When regime ends, it's generally quite a peaceful affair actually the deleted. is of removed from office. This is unlikely to happen here. Isn't it? Well, I mean, sometimes it has been an sometimes it hasn't been. So when I was a journalist working for the independent, I was the East Europe during the eighty nine revolutions and also join me the fall of Milosevic Milosevic in Serbia and cover dot and there a number of those leaders were ready to use very significant violence and what I'm fascinated by very moved by what was seeing with the courage. A better as protesters today is to see that they are defined vence in the same ways that work very effectively for example, in East Germany where people were threatened with extraordinary for someone particular day in Leipzig in. October nineteen eighty-nine the fact that so many people came out meant regime which had publicly declared its loyalty to force actually back down in Romania I very much. Hope it weren't turn into remain, but we do already see that there are splits within Belarus at the riot police remain loyal. The moment we've seen a number of police units splits off. We've seen a lot of establishment figures putting off in the same way as also does something happened in in Ukraine and the Orange Revolution, and once you see security forces a different security forces splitting away going like enough already as August said, I mean the eighty percent. Claim was was absurdly insulin and the degree of the virus even Grayson seen before and I think this is really interesting. It might end up in huge volumes but I think Lukashenka would lose very very badly that to happen I think it's a regional issue. How if you like bluntly how crazy you are Milosevic. For example, he survived on one occasion ninety seven by giving some concessions and then re clamping down and people just got tired and went back when you use real violence I think it's really difficult. It was a great book written by Richard couple the Polish off I was written about the Iranian revolution. Charlotte. Charlotte's but very much reflected his own country Poland which forty years ago. This month solidarity kind of a huge opposition movement didn't call itself opposition challenge the regime and unthinkable circumstances laying Brezhnev for the very reactionary Russian leader was still in power. They managed to become successful and he said the moment where people stand in front of eastern threatens violence, the pre curry signing backstops, and instead someone stands there and doesn't back down he said, this is where the revolution begins, and after that in effect is the exact the precipice. If you're to violence, you make people more angry if you start making concessions than people go. We have lost our fear and in a sense the certain moment difficult to prediction events but describable. There is no way back to the regime and it still seems a little bit early to say but I think it's very, very difficult to see how Lukashenko come back from this. If he steps back more gently than, of course, it will be peaceful. The protests have been fun tastic peaceful and very, very consciously so far the extended even cleaning up rubbish because I really vary consciously very civic. Minded. So he might just go off and disappear off to Russia for example, and as it will live happily ever after but he tries to bring out all of the guns. Then I think you know all bets are off but I don't think it was a good ending for him whichever way it goes Steve Crozier and Elga agenda over there. Thank you for joining us on monocle twenty four.

You know you put in so much work into content creation only have like ten people. You know region blog post an like this. Mom. Come on. This can't be life so I, did a lot of research and tested out Pinterest, and within three months might traffic increased by over three hundred percent, and now I have millions of views on the platform, and so it's been incredible, and I'm really passionate about helping other MOMS who wanna get into business because spoken to so many who feel like having a fulltime job after having children doesn't serve where they're ad in life, and they're exploring how to have online business, and so I feel like they're my people and I want to teach all of them.

And you know to take things off and so when you were like you need to implement as you're learning. Start Coaching people right now. It kind of messed with my head in the best way. Possible sells like okay. I'm GONNA do this. And it was great because I realize after doing it, it was that accountability pressure that I needed to actually get it done because I've been talking about having an online course for three years, and then within six weeks of doing the course I had done and dusted

Defund The Police??? - burst 01

"Patriots Paul Spartan here from the Midnight Patriots. So, one of the. Feel about anchored now. When we started this insanity we always tell people. The reason we do this is because insomnia sucks almost as bad as tyranny. We would have these conversations between ourselves the group chats. Throws and things like that. We thought, hey man, you know we should just record a podcast but the more we looked the more expensive became. We Cross anger. Anger gives you all the tools you need to do this to make your voice heard and get your voice out there. You have an opinion you gotta use anchor everything from recording to editing to distribution that you'd be all the tools that you need. To allow you to record your podcast right for your phone or your computer. Anchor covers distribution by getting on. Apple. spotify and many many others I mean how you can make money right from your own podcast with no minimum listenership. It's everything you need in one spot in one place simple and effective. So get yourself anchor make voice her. All Right Patriots welcome again to another episode of the Midnight Patriots. Here from the Mile High Command Center the paper to PRICELESS DOT COM studios. Of today, we're going to be discussing the defunding police movement an idea that has picked up steam recently has become a rallying cry for far left protesters, rioters and seemingly anarchist groups. And we wanted to put some thoughts out there about this It seems to me that. We have a problem that requires more of a solution than just defunding. Systemic racism in my opinion is Beth. now, some people would with that. That said. If the narrative that we're going to be that is being shoved down our throats is to be believe that people of Color of. All Ages? Seated shining see in this country are being quote hunted by racist armed hate-mongers. Now that said if if that is in fact, the case. Why would you wanNA define the one organization that has the legal authority in the equipment. To protect you. That seems like a pretty fall said, it seems like a false dichotomy false comparison a false premise to start conversation PHOENIX. What are your thoughts? You know I'm GonNa take this a step further. The phone, the police movement. That is going to move a certain direction and stop. Once, they have figured out that. The one entity. That has sworn upon their own life to defend. There's like. Is Actually doing the job. We. Look at Minneapolis looks. legit. Atlanta's for the three top of my head. All of them have the same premise of less defunding. On the police, define the police. It went a step further into. Let's abolish the police install a private. Very. Force. That has absolutely no training. As No understanding of each individual law that a grand jury a whatever. If. Going to try and paying on. A criminal, a offender, a day walker anybody. Whatever you WANNA call it. So. My name might taking this step further into the question is what exactly we're trying to de-fund. I. Do numerous other people and no. One can give me an answer. It's always just defined defunding. Okay. So Great. Now we have a narratives being Ramdan, our throat. When all in all actuality is, hey, let's just bringing this back to the wild west little set like men up. Yeah I mean that's exactly the way I. See it is if you're going to defend the police and define them then yeah. What we're GONNA have is is you know the your your proverbial gun show earth sugar your gunfight at high noon in the middle of the street. That said cryptic. What are your thoughts on the matter? While I mean if you go I, find that going to be very odd if they try and go wild west because you know the same group behind the protests in the defunding, the police are the same ones who want to raise taxes and have all these limitations on ammo and guns and everything else that. You're going to be able to do that. We're going to have to throw stones at each other. Because, they're going to keep trying to get rid of. Guns and AMMO. I mean. It's maximilian face with white gloves and We'll go back to sword fight fifth. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because you know guns don't have near the range of a sword. A you know. That's an excellent point. I mean, they're they're trying to you know the presumptive destroyed comedy Slimy Joe. Biden. Has Basically announced that east common for the guns and they're going to basically raise taxes on firearms and ammunition to where they are completely unaffordable to anyone that's not in the billionaire boys You know that'd be that being said. How and how the me get to this point I mean you're you're talking about defunct not not obviously not us we think it's a crazy. Lunatics idea. What do they want to replace it with? I mean, let's let's be honest mental Minnesota in Minneapolis the same city council that saw fit to abolish the police department Arben has hired mercenaries for the private security force. Now. I see a far more disturbing outcome here boys, and that is that you know we have people acting with the fourth and backing of the law. And have no oath to uphold the constitution they're loyal only to money. That's a win win. If you're a leftist Marxist wants to light the constitution on fire because you have thugs running around at the under the color and force of law with automatic weapons. Now, if people think that trump is ending in in the army, what do you think's going to happen when we have quote unquote law enforcement that has no that are basically political puppets. Call that. KGB Custodio or exactly. Exactly. You'RE GONNA turn from. You know right now everybody's all up in. Arms with you know Military. Being, sent to Seattle and stuff like that like military forces or. Whatever that whatever they are that they're complaining about having martial law budget they wanNA with the funding this which are gonNA run into is you're actually GONNA run into mercenaries Latsis. You know either they're working for the buck or they think they're doing good by be judge jury and executioner for anybody they come across you know doing something they don't like because nobody can have their own opinion like and be civil about it. It's either you agree with me or you're wrong. that. You'RE GONNA run into all these fights and all these these vigilantes more or less that are going to sit there, and they're going to have guns and they're going to. Attack and kill innocent people just because they don't agree with what they think. About. Exactly. And like I said, that's a win win for Marxist politicians who have somehow seized power and now want want to run rampant over the constitutional whether we like it or not. I don't agree with with the with the with a lot of the things that bid the organization black lives matter stands for the organization to me is a self admitted Marxist. Violence approving organization now. I can't get kind the organization I. Don't think that any of US disagree the that black lives do matter just like every other. Form of life matters and regardless there everyone in this country is is is entitled to due process. I agree there's you know that there is race racism racism exists we we've seen. Plenty of it and I completely agree that that needs to go away. Of course, I'll ever. I do not believe that there is systematic I mean everybody. One way or another has the opportunity. And responsibility to themselves to. Get, the life that they want. Why agree that's? That's what that's what pursuit of happiness is all about. It's not the pursuit of joy quote unquote it was meant to the in that context as it context as written in the declaration of independence in the Constitution as pursuing your own circumstances. Working working to be what you want to be. I mean honestly I, you want to so defend the polices. The wrong way to go now do I think you know there are almost every state I can think of Over uses their budget. Or uses it incorrectly and find themselves up Shit Creek and some point now inside the funding the police. What should happen is that the police have you know? Better, I mean, honestly better training. Right I. Mean sometimes, you have the the. The police the Police Academy or whatever, and then you're thrown right out. You know on the beat with a superior or something like that, and obviously you being a fresh gumshoe sitting there dealing with somebody who's been on the force for a while you're learning from them. So you know if you get a bad cop as a superior, they're gonNA freak out because they don't know. To stop them, they don't know what to do. Because they're too worried about their job because there isn't training for that kind of thing. So I, I think that they need to revamp the training and they need to make every All officers that. that are serving should have to do. Something like a fresh training course or A. An up-to-date with all the changes that happen because we know societies like a computer, it's something it's out of date and six months. Air Every you know every year, every two years they have to get recertified training or something to that extent that just helps them. Update helps them mitigate the issues that they come across in a better way. You know take that. Then some of these God awful construction plans that they don't need to do like take Colorado's redoing stapleton. Oh God right spent millions of dollars. They're now you take that you invest in getting in creating another sub department doesn't the police but you get a another department that deals with you know Domestic domestic disturbances and. Family matters they can be counselors therapists whatever now they should have cops with them. You know in it is something that requires a police officer or Some sort of. Of Force or. Something that the police are trained for but I think some of these things like the people that do actually have mental health problems that. They you know they they don't have self-awareness were there at all they become crazy or something some of them would be able to. Diffuse the situation before a cop has to. Think that they're. Defending their life from somebody who's just acting rational because they just mentally aren't there. Well, that's the that's the real question is it is is that how how do we Do we define those situations because I'm going to get into a few things here after the after the break your boys and we will will continue on and I'm probably GonNa Piss a lot of the cops that I know off by some things going to get GonNa say so patriots stick with this year will be right back. Patriots is Paul sparking with a shameless plug for our New Year store. That's right. Midnight Patriots now offers t shirts, coffee mugs just about every other purchase where on your body the check it out go to shop midnight gatriways dot. com is way to both embrace your insomnia display your patriotism, and tell your governor to go himselves. So that Shop Dot Patriots Dot Com fifteen percent off right now for a limited time now back to the show. Okay. So as I mentioned in the previous segment, probably going to piss off a lot of cops that I know and I can't believe I'm actually going to say part of what I'm going to say. here in the Mile High Command. Center. We. Are. Unfortunately in the current being subjects of governor, jared police. Now I want to state unequivocally I. Have Zero problem that he is day openly that doesn't bother me a bit I don't care that he watches a different kind of porn than I do I don't care who he sleeps with. The guy's a timer. I gotta say I will criticize words do and I will give credit words do. Now, I'm not going to go over the whole article, but there was an article that recently appeared to the dead post about the some of the things that we were just talking about as a pretend to what I feel like our common sense police reforms. Now. I'm not GonNa Not GonNa read the article which but everybody can go look it up, Denver Post. dotcom can't believe I'm giving them pleader but. that. said. Cookie issues really stood up three sorry, three key issues really stood out for me in this legislation. Firstly that they're going to demilitarize a patrol police which I can't help but agree with okay If Your average ordinary citizen is not to not able to carry an AK47 or a ar fifteen around without being assaulted without being questioned by police than the police shouldn't have meter I don't have a problem with that and they said that the details are in the. Second. Is that. They have in fact. reinstituted or excuse me reduced. All immunity. Now, a lot of people may not know what qualified immunity is basically what allows cops to do what they do without any sort of fear of repercussion. So what? The Colorado Legislature has done is institute civilized ability for individual officers that are not accused but but found to be I don't WanNa say guilty but found responsible for the violation of an individual's civil civil liberties. And that liability is up to twenty five, thousand dollars per incident. Number three police are now held to the same standard that has gone on in corporate America in the private sector for. Decades You know we've all been through those work in the corporate world have all been through sexual harassment or bottomline harassment training okay. it's no stranger.

Defund The Police??? - burst 01

"Patriots Paul Spartan here from the Midnight Patriots. So, one of the. Feel about anchored now. When we started this insanity we always tell people. The reason we do this is because insomnia sucks almost as bad as tyranny. We would have these conversations between ourselves the group chats. Throws and things like that. We thought, hey man, you know we should just record a podcast but the more we looked the more expensive became. We Cross anger. Anger gives you all the tools you need to do this to make your voice heard and get your voice out there. You have an opinion you gotta use anchor everything from recording to editing to distribution that you'd be all the tools that you need. To allow you to record your podcast right for your phone or your computer. Anchor covers distribution by getting on. Apple. spotify and many many others I mean how you can make money right from your own podcast with no minimum listenership. It's everything you need in one spot in one place simple and effective. So get yourself anchor make voice her. All Right Patriots welcome again to another episode of the Midnight Patriots. Here from the Mile High Command Center the paper to PRICELESS DOT COM studios. Of today, we're going to be discussing the defunding police movement an idea that has picked up steam recently has become a rallying cry for far left protesters, rioters and seemingly anarchist groups. And we wanted to put some thoughts out there about this It seems to me that. We have a problem that requires more of a solution than just defunding. Systemic racism in my opinion is Beth. now, some people would with that. That said. If the narrative that we're going to be that is being shoved down our throats is to be believe that people of Color of. All Ages? Seated shining see in this country are being quote hunted by racist armed hate-mongers. Now that said if if that is in fact, the case. Why would you wanNA define the one organization that has the legal authority in the equipment. To protect you. That seems like a pretty fall said, it seems like a false dichotomy false comparison a false premise to start conversation PHOENIX. What are your thoughts? You know I'm GonNa take this a step further. The phone, the police movement. That is going to move a certain direction and stop. Once, they have figured out that. The one entity. That has sworn upon their own life to defend. There's like. Is Actually doing the job. We. Look at Minneapolis looks. legit. Atlanta's for the three top of my head. All of them have the same premise of less defunding. On the police, define the police. It went a step further into. Let's abolish the police install a private. Very. Force. That has absolutely no training. As No understanding of each individual law that a grand jury a whatever. If. Going to try and paying on. A criminal, a offender, a day walker anybody. Whatever you WANNA call it. So. My name might taking this step further into the question is what exactly we're trying to de-fund. I. Do numerous other people and no. One can give me an answer. It's always just defined defunding. Okay. So Great. Now we have a narratives being Ramdan, our throat. When all in all actuality is, hey, let's just bringing this back to the wild west little set like men up. Yeah I mean that's exactly the way I. See it is if you're going to defend the police and define them then yeah. What we're GONNA have is is you know the your your proverbial gun show earth sugar your gunfight at high noon in the middle of the street. That said cryptic. What are your thoughts on the matter? While I mean if you go I, find that going to be very odd if they try and go wild west because you know the same group behind the protests in the defunding, the police are the same ones who want to raise taxes and have all these limitations on ammo and guns and everything else that. You're going to be able to do that. We're going to have to throw stones at each other. Because, they're going to keep trying to get rid of. Guns and AMMO. I mean. It's maximilian face with white gloves and We'll go back to sword fight fifth. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because you know guns don't have near the range of a sword. A you know. That's an excellent point. I mean, they're they're trying to you know the presumptive destroyed comedy Slimy Joe. Biden. Has Basically announced that east common for the guns and they're going to basically raise taxes on firearms and ammunition to where they are completely unaffordable to anyone that's not in the billionaire boys You know that'd be that being said. How and how the me get to this point I mean you're you're talking about defunct not not obviously not us we think it's a crazy. Lunatics idea. What do they want to replace it with? I mean, let's let's be honest mental Minnesota in Minneapolis the same city council that saw fit to abolish the police department Arben has hired mercenaries for the private security force. Now. I see a far more disturbing outcome here boys, and that is that you know we have people acting with the fourth and backing of the law. And have no oath to uphold the constitution they're loyal only to money. That's a win win. If you're a leftist Marxist wants to light the constitution on fire because you have thugs running around at the under the color and force of law with automatic weapons. Now, if people think that trump is ending in in the army, what do you think's going to happen when we have quote unquote law enforcement that has no that are basically political puppets. Call that. KGB Custodio or exactly. Exactly. You'RE GONNA turn from. You know right now everybody's all up in. Arms with you know Military. Being, sent to Seattle and stuff like that like military forces or. Whatever that whatever they are that they're complaining about having martial law budget they wanNA with the funding this which are gonNA run into is you're actually GONNA run into mercenaries Latsis. You know either they're working for the buck or they think they're doing good by be judge jury and executioner for anybody they come across you know doing something they don't like because nobody can have their own opinion like and be civil about it. It's either you agree with me or you're wrong. that. You'RE GONNA run into all these fights and all these these vigilantes more or less that are going to sit there, and they're going to have guns and they're going to. Attack and kill innocent people just because they don't agree with what they think. About. Exactly. And like I said, that's a win win for Marxist politicians who have somehow seized power and now want want to run rampant over the constitutional whether we like it or not. I don't agree with with the with the with a lot of the things that bid the organization black lives matter stands for the organization to me is a self admitted Marxist. Violence approving organization now. I can't get kind the organization I. Don't think that any of US disagree the that black lives do matter just like every other. Form of life matters and regardless there everyone in this country is is is entitled to due process. I agree there's you know that there is race racism racism exists we we've seen. Plenty of it and I completely agree that that needs to go away. Of course, I'll ever. I do not believe that there is systematic I mean everybody. One way or another has the opportunity. And responsibility to themselves to. Get, the life that they want. Why agree that's? That's what that's what pursuit of happiness is all about. It's not the pursuit of joy quote unquote it was meant to the in that context as it context as written in the declaration of independence in the Constitution as pursuing your own circumstances. Working working to be what you want to be. I mean honestly I, you want to so defend the polices. The wrong way to go now do I think you know there are almost every state I can think of Over uses their budget. Or uses it incorrectly and find themselves up Shit Creek and some point now inside the funding the police. What should happen is that the police have you know? Better, I mean, honestly better training. Right I. Mean sometimes, you have the the. The police the Police Academy or whatever, and then you're thrown right out. You know on the beat with a superior or something like that, and obviously you being a fresh gumshoe sitting there dealing with somebody who's been on the force for a while you're learning from them. So you know if you get a bad cop as a superior, they're gonNA freak out because they don't know. To stop them, they don't know what to do. Because they're too worried about their job because there isn't training for that kind of thing. So I, I think that they need to revamp the training and they need to make every All officers that. that are serving should have to do. Something like a fresh training course or A. An up-to-date with all the changes that happen because we know societies like a computer, it's something it's out of date and six months. Air Every you know every year, every two years they have to get recertified training or something to that extent that just helps them. Update helps them mitigate the issues that they come across in a better way. You know take that. Then some of these God awful construction plans that they don't need to do like take Colorado's redoing stapleton. Oh God right spent millions of dollars. They're now you take that you invest in getting in creating another sub department doesn't the police but you get a another department that deals with you know Domestic domestic disturbances and. Family matters they can be counselors therapists whatever now they should have cops with them. You know in it is something that requires a police officer or Some sort of. Of Force or. Something that the police are trained for but I think some of these things like the people that do actually have mental health problems that. They you know they they don't have self-awareness were there at all they become crazy or something some of them would be able to. Diffuse the situation before a cop has to. Think that they're. Defending their life from somebody who's just acting rational because they just mentally aren't there. Well, that's the that's the real question is it is is that how how do we Do we define those situations because I'm going to get into a few things here after the after the break your boys and we will will continue on and I'm probably GonNa Piss a lot of the cops that I know off by some things going to get GonNa say so patriots stick with this year will be right back. Patriots is Paul sparking with a shameless plug for our New Year store. That's right. Midnight Patriots now offers t shirts, coffee mugs just about every other purchase where on your body the check it out go to shop midnight gatriways dot. com is way to both embrace your insomnia display your patriotism, and tell your governor to go himselves. So that Shop Dot Patriots Dot Com fifteen percent off right now for a limited time now back to the show. Okay. So as I mentioned in the previous segment, probably going to piss off a lot of cops that I know and I can't believe I'm actually going to say part of what I'm going to say. here in the Mile High Command. Center. We. Are. Unfortunately in the current being subjects of governor, jared police. Now I want to state unequivocally I. Have Zero problem that he is day openly that doesn't bother me a bit I don't care that he watches a different kind of porn than I do I don't care who he sleeps with. The guy's a timer. I gotta say I will criticize words do and I will give credit words do. Now, I'm not going to go over the whole article, but there was an article that recently appeared to the dead post about the some of the things that we were just talking about as a pretend to what I feel like our common sense police reforms. Now. I'm not GonNa Not GonNa read the article which but everybody can go look it up, Denver Post. dotcom can't believe I'm giving them pleader but. that. said. Cookie issues really stood up three sorry, three key issues really stood out for me in this legislation. Firstly that they're going to demilitarize a patrol police which I can't help but agree with okay If Your average ordinary citizen is not to not able to carry an AK47 or a ar fifteen around without being assaulted without being questioned by police than the police shouldn't have meter I don't have a problem with that and they said that the details are in the. Second. Is that. They have in fact. reinstituted or excuse me reduced. All immunity. Now, a lot of people may not know what qualified immunity is basically what allows cops to do what they do without any sort of fear of repercussion. So what? The Colorado Legislature has done is institute civilized ability for individual officers that are not accused but but found to be I don't WanNa say guilty but found responsible for the violation of an individual's civil civil liberties. And that liability is up to twenty five, thousand dollars per incident. Number three police are now held to the same standard that has gone on in corporate America in the private sector for. Decades You know we've all been through those work in the corporate world have all been through sexual harassment or bottomline harassment training okay. it's no stranger. It's that class that you have to. You have to guzzle coffee in and remain silent while world hold what sexual predators we are for. You know where we place our gaze to you know every other male male behavior that said as part of that training. What we're an abuse to is the idea of collusion what collusion means is that if you witnessed harassment or bullying or something that blatantly violates company policy or law. That if you don't come forward, report it and it's found out that you know about the new face, the same disciplinary measures as the offender. That includes that because liability Does your jobs.

Put this in the story, but it was never real. It was like from May dream. So that's an and so it's scary like I watched so many of their videos I was like all I. Hope, I'm not indoctrinated like by the end of this because I'm consumed like so much of their content and it's just crazy like once you get into these like. you know rabbit holes on Youtube which reminds me a lot of the New York Times rabbit hole todd cast. If you listened to that of that, it's all about like youtube radicalization. Once you're like a in these rebels youtube. It's so easy to understand how like people get into this and swept up into this and have it changed your whole life because. You're just like okay. Here's another what yet? Another one though play and it's just great. It's wild and so I'm I'm really glad to be done because I needed a mental health break. and. I think that's a great note to end on I mean you said at the beginning the story touches on so many major issues that get talked about all over and other aspects of society with race and religion and just. Youtube radicalization and people using tech and You this group, using all kinds of different like messaging APPs. I hadn't heard of and they've got John's and all kinds. There's just like all kinds of stuff in here and it touches on so many issues that. It's like. If you spend enough time on the Internet reading about other topics, this story intersects with so many of those. Yeah it does and I think that's why it's like people have from what I've seen on social media like seems like people have actually read all three stories like people one like came back for two, and then came back for three just. social media feedback like everyone was like. Wow, this is enthralling. Every word was just fascinating. And I think that's why, because it is like so many different parts of society of twenty twenty right now are wrapped up in this story, and it's sort of you know you know it's this guy was a local hero. And now the community fears him because of the actions that he's taken recently so I think it's just kind of your. classically fall of a hero story as but with so many new things added to it so I learned a ton from reporting this and help.

Yeah, living, Yanko, he survived long enough that he helps solve his own murder. There's a really great Guardian autorite on it called Alexandra Living Yanko. The man who sold his own murder and it's definitely worth reading for sure. Yeah, I mean just a couple years ago, What was that Guy's name scrawl? Sergei screwball he was, he was the one with the nerve poison. He wasn't killed. There was an attempt on his life, though yeah, but it was just. Just, like every time you think man, this is Cold War stuff. It just POPs up in the news again like man. It's still happening. Yeah, and I mean we should say. Both of those attacks were in London like this wasn't in Russia Moscow or anything like that. This was in London these guys lived in London in exile, and they were still murdered in London through like radioactive material and nerve gas that was smuggling the country and that actually is kind of goes to stand as evidence that there still are these illegals these deep cover sleeper agents that are working for what used to be the KGB is now the FSB. Yay and that's why it's a really big deal. that the president of the United States would wanNA cozy up to somebody like Putin. Who is making great efforts to put. Who He wants an office, yeah!

"It's really is staggering. This kind of stuff still goes on to this degree. Yeah, there's nothing we can do about it. Yeah for real. So, so let's. Let's step back for a second. Because we kind of hopped head, but back into KGB history, KGB was around from nineteen, fifty, four, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety one, and we said earlier that the The KGB had a direct role in the fall of the USSR. They did because there was a KGB head who is appointed by Gorbachev because he thought that he was an intelligent moderate person was opened new ideas, and it turned out he wasn't. He was part of that same old KGB establishment who wanted things to stay the way that they were and He actually led a coup against Gorbachev, I, I was too young to know what was going on, but there is a coup against Gorbachev where he was under house arrest for a minute. Yeah, and The coup finally failed because it became clear that the military wasn't wasn't in on it or wasn't going to take part in it but eventually led directly within months to the downfall of the US are the break-up of the USSR because in the meantime they elected for the first time, a democratically elected president, and when Gorbachev saw that basically this coup was a vote of no confidence in him. He stepped aside separated the Communist Party from the presidency, and all of a sudden. The USSR wasn't there anymore. It was just Russia because the alight states started saying Hey. We're independent. Now we'll see later Soviet Union and the USSR fell apart kicked off by this coup that the the KGB initiated. Yet and I. Think He Elston. or Yeltsin's excuse me officially split it up right. Yeah. Yeah, he said. KGB dissolved. We're going to break you up into the FSB and the do the same stuff. Right exactly, but just do it separately I figure if I separate you guys, you might be less evil, and apparently that was not the case..

"Back in Nineteen ninety-one although. As, we'll see. There's actually a lot of direct influence that the KGB had on that, but there's this idea that throughout its history there was stolen kind of kicked off that thing. Where just tell me what I wanna hear real some right literally going to kill you, or two in that that it was carried on even long after Stalin was gone. Sure that sycophantic kind of intelligence, which is really surprising, because there was a really successful organization externally It was that they think that potentially. For as good as they were espionage and stealing secrets the the Soviets were apparently not. And I have to preface this. Let me just caveat this. This is reading American sources about the KGB right. The KGB was really good at keeping a code of silence. There were especially toward the end of the USSR. More and more. KGB started to defect, but even when they defected. We weren't sure if they were plants, so there is still like. What they said was taken with a grain of salt but the the idea that that the KGB was was very successful in stealing secrets. Supports this. Idea now that the Soviet Union would not have been superpower Part of this to to superpower polarity ran the world in the Cold War. Had it not been for stealing secrets, which assures an explicitly say, but suggests that they were they did not have the best and brightest as far as technology and sciences concerned, which is Kinda surprised to me because I'd always heard that the Soviets had really really smart scientists in their own programs to, but this researching the KGB made it sound like they wouldn't have been able to keep up. Had they not stolen advanced weapon technology and built their own versions of it? I'm confused I have no idea what's true anymore. Yay. It's definitely true that. They're spying efforts in the Cold War, especially when it comes to nuclear armament were very much ramped up because they were spying with us yet, but I think they. They were saying. They were saying. Wasn't just getting the atomic bomb, but basically like all their advanced weapons technology. Of stealing the the point is is kind of a two handed compliment backside, compliment that they they were really good at stealing secrets, but that they wouldn't have been able to be a nuclear superpower without stealing secrets I. think that was that was what I was. It's what I found. Well and it also could have been an I'm just speculating could have been a thing where that was such a part of the system. was that is. Hey we don't need to put resources for steps one through five because we can steal that stuff, right exactly, and we can just start on step number six, or whatever once we have whatever intelligence we need sure. But what do I know? I'm just a dumb podcast. Do. You want to take another break, you know. Let's do it, okay. We're GONNA. Take another break. Everybody. That's no secret. Stuff you should know..

When we we recorded I, wrote on, and we recorded on Delta Force. Really I was really nervous. They're gonNA. Come kill you. I don't know I. Mean there's supposedly they're not supposed to exist in. We were talking about how they do exist. I was like surely not but no I i. know you're talking about. It didn't happen in this one, so maybe this is the one that will get me. 'CAUSE KGB. Those are the. In even says in this article like when you think about the knock on your door in the middle of the night. come with us. That's KGB. OPS Right there right? But that was. If you were a Russian Soviet citizen, which is true something. It's weird, because like you know all about the KGB just having been raised as a Cold War Kid. You know But I never really put two and two together that it was a really all encompassing secret police kind of thing that they had going on, because not only were they big on spying and giving their hands on advanced weapon technology, running disinformation campaigns around the world, and trying to destabilize the United States and its its reach around the world they also. Also were really focused internally domestically as well so that they were a secret police force that would come and get the centers and send them off to prison camps in the middle of the night. They they basically did it all in all of it was geared chuck toward keeping the Soviet Communist Party in power and they. They were successful for several decades actually. Yeah and I mean from reading this research. It seems like. I mean they did do all the things, but their main charge was squashing from within teams like squishing.

Referendum In Russia Passes, Allowing Putin To Remain President Until 2036

"The Kremlin said Russians had shown how much they trusted. President Vladimir Putin with a nationwide vote that gave him the right to run for two more times while people wondered on Thursday whether he really would stay on another sixteen years, announcing final results of the week long votes, officials said nearly seventy eight percent of voters had backed changes to the constitution, allowing Putin who's fourth term as president ends in twenty, twenty, four to run for two more back to back six year terms. This means the sixty seven year old former KGB officer, who has ruled Russia, over two decades as either. Either President or prime. Minister could be in power until he's eighty. Three go loss say non governmental organization that monitors elections said it had recorded numerous irregularities during the vote, including ballot, stuffing and widespread cases of employers, forcing staff to cost a ballot already the longest serving leader in modern Russian history since Joseph Stalin Putin has said he has yet to decide on his political future, but wanted officials to avoid getting distracted by the question of who one day might succeed him. Opposition activists have called the vote illegitimate and said it was designed to legalize a Putin presidency for life. Only, one of Russia's eighty-five regions, remote nenets was recorded as having voted against the constitutional changes amid discontent there over a plan to merge it with another region.

"Let's talk about the media yeah the media is a powerful Trojan horse seven mereka if it's not a and I mean they have attacked president trump relentlessly yeah and the problem we have is we have fox okay yeah now fox is okay but Rupert Murdoch is ninety years old right and his two sons are liberals okay we have newsmax rage has been growing and that's a good thing yeah we have one America right which is a good thing but these are national programs they don't get into Vince's crab house they don't get in the fells point being close they don't get into those things go and they don't get into helping our people who need help to fight against the beast and as you pointed out the Baltimore sun doesn't report on any of these issues involving her son is one of them yeah right exactly the Baltimore sun is part of the super shadow government yeah they protect them yeah people say that the media has fallen in the tank for the left they fell in the tank for the Obama no the media never found the check for anybody the media are leaders in this offensive they are legally are part of the natural America they were and and they were targeted specifically for that purpose because of the vast influence they have they were targeted for subversion and infiltration by the Soviet Union in the nineteen thirties and we could go on for hours about how that happened and who infiltrated but just for example one person remember Edward R. Murrow of CBS Edward R. Murrow is one of the people primarily responsible for bringing communist it's two Columbia teachers college to begin inserting all of these destructive America narratives into our universities he was responsible for bringing those people over and he worked with a guy named Laurence Duggan whose son was an actual Soviet agent and he was friends with his son and he became a news anchor for CBS that's just one example there are many many trusted a man in America yeah right right he he gave the Vietnam War at eight a story that was a hundred and eighty degrees from what the truth was riled tell your doctor about with Walter Cronkite yeah that young people don't know who has what we member we only had three major networks in this country now I can tell you let me say some about yeah because the networks are required by FCC regulation as part of their contract to provide unbiased news nobody has ever called him that if I were in a position to do so I would pull their FCC licenses tomorrow and tell them that they better straighten out their newsrooms and start reporting what's going on because they should be challenged in the courts right absolutely be challenged because they have been really but they have such power and such influence and Americans have to get a constitutional public there operates through elections has to be given the facts at what's happened instead is they've been given the left narrative for sixty eighty years in World War two The New York Times was engaged in treason it was exposing things mark Levin's book yeah I mean it's just stunning it's stunning when CNN first started Ted Turner used to go on a show and he would bring some five Soviet KGB agents on the show with him had a first among them was Georgy Arbatov who is the head of member for US and Canada old KGB agent they would talk down president Reagan they would just sit there and terror attacks president right that was C.

What's happening with the oil markets?

What's happening with the oil markets?

"I WanNa talk about something that has confused people no end and that is what's going on with the oil markets which is causing the stock markets around. The world. Have a really really rough time. So here's the scoop and we alluded to this on the show. Last week is that it was possible. That oil would go negative that people would actually have to pay to have somebody take their oil. And that's an oversimplification. But the way commodities markets work is people buy and sell contracts on futures exchanges where they're guessing what the value is. Something is going to be the next month months down the road. And what's happening with oil right now? Is there such an enormous oversupply that nobody wants it? People who own the contracts or essentially having to pay people to take them over and so we have had a double whammy first. We had the thing that Putin so successfully engineered that massively over produced oil from Russia and then intern from Saudi Arabia as demand for the products that come out oil gasoline and the others fell off a cliff because of all the sheltering in place around the world what. Putin has been trying to engineer is to destroy the US energy market the US energy market had become the world's largest and the situation for us different than Putin and Russia and the Saudis. And some others is that costs us more to produce each barrel of oil using principally hydraulic fracking than it cost to get it easily. Accessible reserves that the Russians and the Saudis and some others can get too so hydraulic fracking costs. More to do then. Most any other method of producing oil out of the ground or pumping it out of the ground and so it normal prices for oil. Our producers are marginally profitable to not really highly profitable but enough they can make a living what Putin saw was an opportunity to destroy the some of the economic strength of the United States and to create more market share for Russia's oil. And so he's been able to do both by pumping way in excess. The amount of oil needed in the world make no mistake dictator. Putin is dedicated to harming the United States. That's what he's always been about. That's who he was when he was with the KGB when it was still the Soviet Union. And that's what he's still about so where we sit today is the effects of what. Putin unleashed has essentially worked and now the world is so awash in oil that the problem is nobody knows if we're going to have any place to store the excess as a result you're going to see one oil exploration company after another and one oil producer after another in the United States. Go Bust and that's what he wanted to do and that's happening now. Historically when that's happened the oil industry in the United States has always been a boom and bust industry. Putin's victory will be short-lived because even as companies get cleared out as competitors when oil's price recovers as people around the world more or less eventually. Go back to work. The oil price will get to a point where players will get out there and start exploring and producing oil out of the ground again in the United States. So right now. This is really hideous with taxes as I read one story in forget if it was the Houston Chronicle or the Dallas Morning News both follow the oil industry so much particularly the chronicle. Does that Texans think of themselves as energy producers not necessarily one particular type of energy and already in the Permian basin the core of where hydraulic fracking has been so successful. Companies are pivoting to producing energy from solar because the Permian Basin is one of the best places in the United States to efficiently produce sewer and it's extremely profitable to do so there so no that one of the things about American capitalism is when one door closes. American entrepreneurs are willing to take a risk on another. And I think you're going to see that the big pivot in Texas in West Texas is going to be the sole were for now. But let's talk about what this means to you and me and our wallets so the last trade for an a gallon of regular gasoline at wholesale spiff four cents the effective. That is that around the country. What we pay for gasoline once people start going back to work and get on the roads and more normal numbers. The savings to your wallet operates like a big tax cut so this is a complicated thing in that a sector of the. Us economy energy production is taking a body blow. You and I as consumers have been just eaten alive by Corona virus but there is a dividend for us as consumers is. We'll go to fill our vehicles. Is We go through months of trying to recover from Corona virus? We will pay much less for the fuel we put in our tanks. There's lots and lots of things that the United States can do to strike back at the Russians not militarily but economically and one. That may be confusing. But you'll likely hear more over the next. Few weeks is having a very high tax on oil imports since we have such a massive supply in the problem is a price side problem with no demand out there that if we create a price disadvantage for the Russians with the oil that would maybe flow into the United States. It provides a bit of protection our producers. The problem is that creates a conflict between what works best for you and me as consumers which is having a lower price per gallon of gas and then the other side what works best for the producers which is to have some protection from the hideous actions of dictator Putin.

Barsky I WANNA know is it not also applicable to communism in fact to me this sounds like the motto for Communism Awesome. It's too good to be true. So it's not true yeah except under communism. They won so many opportunities to be taken for a fool. You were taken for full as far as your entire way of life was concerned but there weren't any shady operators. That could come up to sell you. Something that was so special a showdown as many there were some and by the way even capitalism. You know I know people with WHO I can do. Business on handshake. For instance by publisher if this were Society I would do another book just based on a handshake but in New York City. It's not very likely that you find white people like that out in public. Who Promise you a great deal definitely not what were some of the initial differences you saw between living and capitalism in New York capitalism H. Q. Versus under communism? There must have been some things where you holy cow. I really miss this about Communist society or this is so different that that sticks out right away to be honest I did vis anything. I really didn't miss. Anything would be more of a WHO. Who Am I missed was friends not so much family friends? Mike German wife but as far as way of life there was nothing to miss. I didn't even being a chemistry. Professor is one word supermarket the variety of food that you could bet there was astounding. The other thing I missed was German food. It was quite indicative when I had my first real apartment with a little kitchen. The first meal was boiled potatoes. Man We have those despoiled potatoes and butter. Now you got a job as a bike messenger and you're making deliveries all over the city. You once made a delivery from Russian tea room to Dustin Hoffman. The Dustin Hoffman. No that he came face to face with KGB spy of course not any by the way he was not highly regarded by us. He didn't tip. I was very cheap cheap. The Russian tea room was his favorite restaurant and he wasn't a hospital. I don't know what the reason was. That's incredible that's so funny. Doesn't often multimillionaire doesn't tip got got his food delivered by the KGB. So did Jacqueline Onassis. I never got to see her but I had a carpet. Sample delivery So there was some tenuous touch coins between the KGB and so rather famous people but they didn't amount to anything and you get married in Nineteen naty actually and you have a kid with girl. Linda how do you compartmentalize your two identities at this point. Right you've got spy mode and then you've got Jack Barsky American guy with a wife a kid mode. Does that not 'cause you just ridiculous amounts of stress and so when you ask the question how I can't add to but I did. It's really odd. This is one of the things that I had to really analyze. Whether that was true which nowadays I can say with some confidence that I had manufactured annual factored adult personality to some degree not fully and that was really clear about six years into my career. Here's an agent. So every two years I would go back and spend time with Kalinda that point my son. It was great to be home with great to meet my wife. If wise still loved very much my son have driven food drink. A lot of good beer felt like home termine again and so. This is what happened happened when I went back to the United States and I usually would not arrive in New York. City usually was a different airport so as to not run into people that know me as Oh had wait a minute you come from Europe. 'cause I was traveling on a different David false passport. So let's say I would touch down in Washington. DC or in. Boston get off the plane late night here. American English will be home because I already had the start of a good life. I started a career as a program on that work for Metlife I love. I love my team. I loved what I was doing. A had become so accustomed to the American way of life. Clearly not enough to ultimately stay here. Some people misunderstood understood that because I loved the American way of life of lease nice date was Chelsea my daughter but this certainly helped to a degree because I had Americanized to a large extent already after six years. Tell us about the process of Americanization. He started working at metlife. You make friends with this guy. I Patrick Year Insurance Job essentially starts to change your ideology. Can you walk us through that how that happened as I say. The book is one of the most evil entities entities that of capitalism to us as we were told in East Germany in those days. What the insurance companies? I had no idea why they would. Zero in on insurance companies was banks insurance. The company's Wall Street these days epitome of Capitals Evil. Greedy money quarters and people played others first of all. I spent three years in college the United States and that was interesting but at that point I still didn't know what it was like to be at work as an American I got my first job in an insurance company. I like the work. I mean programming for the first time in many years my brain got engaged again. I was allowed to do logic. I was allowed to create eight and then I met so many smart people and they were all really good people. They became friends. The other thing is metlife. In those days was a mutual company knows that but in those days mutual companies were extremely paternalistic. They didn't pay that. Well but they treated you really well D- Untold Compact was. When you find employment there you have a job for life and you will retire with a Golden Watch a great pension and then between you have dot security at metlife even gave us free breakfast lunch dinner if you care to eat three times out of their kitchen so that was completely contrary to what we we were told by then about the evil of the insurance companies on top of it? You know my bosses for all nice and he and I couldn't find anybody evil eye nude sort of that. There were some and they will probably in government in the highest level of American industry but at least down at the level of the work of be. I didn't feel exploited. That was a big change in my fundamental ideology and at that point I had shifted from being an ardent communist this to sort of becoming a socialist not too far away from where Bernie Sanders is. Nowadays that's interesting so you sort of shift from this hardcore communism. Awesome to all right. Let's just make things more fair for everyone. Like you mentioned Bernie Sanders. More fair sure. Capitalism is not a bad thing because it creates. Well we just WANNA make sure so. You know it's more evenly distributed. And interestingly enough there was a street that became pretty strong in eastern European Communist. Party's was called in convergence. Theory by which capitalism and Communism was on a path to converge becomes some kind of a happy socialist kind of conglomerate and this was actually also that had infiltrated the KGB. Because one of my handlers actually volunteered that to me without me even talking about it he says. Oh by the way CONVERSI- series words at and that's Gorbachev Wow and this ultimately how the Soviet Union eventually disappeared softened softened. It became very soft in its ideology and became therefore very vulnerable to to be over with. Now you started to feel at some point like spying was actually getting in the way of your job which I thought was funny. If you have friends who work in information technology you probably know what I'm talking about us. Worker bees who operated computers and computer systems often on call twenty four seven. A desire to do a good job of my competitive spirit was was focused on doing a great job for the company that started paying me very well and that included over time weekend word late night word night calls and all that and then I had to do. There's other stuff you know and when I talk about this other stuff there was tipping point. It would not at the beginning but when I started kicking in and became a really valuable contributor. It took about two two years when I knew that I was really good and I was appreciated by my bosses. That's when my focus shifted towards doing a good job for mid life rather than the KGB. Not Be and it became a nuisance. The communication as well as surveillance detection all this kind of stuff takes a lot of time in takes phenomenal amount of time. So what we're join US talking back and forth the information that I just give you for me to actually hand that amount of inflammation to the Russians. I would have to write it down. Take a picture. Put an undeveloped film into a container. Ask for a dead drop operation. Make sure that I'm not being followed. Dropped his thing some place and wait great to see that the person actually picked it off and as a sign some place that they picked it up the whole operation end-to-end not real time but end to end would take a are we to all kinds of activity in between that interfered with my real job so to speak so funny sitting there doing the insurance thing programming something something that you thought would be a aside cover and now they're saying hey we need a full report and he thinking these guys what a pain. It's so funny they're communicating with you. On the shortwave. By the way they're communicating with you. On the shortwave radio. Right how is it done. What are they saying? Because they're obviously not saying. Hey come in Jack. Barsky spy for the Soviet Union. What are you listening for on this radio? If you watch the Americans Americans.

I'm looking down the road and I follow her and then she stops in talks to some lady who comes out of the Coronell to enforce the best. Now Nice while keep an eye out for that. I love that show and I'm always been obsessed with the Soviet Union that started because I used to live in the former East Germany. Which is where I know you're from and I went to high school there? Oh yeah in Hala Zala no right right. Yeah that's about sixty seventy miles from where I studied chemistry. I know so when I speak German you and I probably have the exact same accent are year from the same area where I learned German ambition. Doing this wall yeah Zakian unhugged autozone us. You know that look. This is super interesting. I've been waiting for this for a long time. I'm very excited about this. I know that just to give a little context. While the allies rebuilt West Germany the Soviet Union effectively looted looted East Germany. Setting it a back about thirty years so when you grew up there was a struggle for survival. You know you had to clear your plate. There was not an food. I guess as we now know where that habit comes from for the United States for all of our eastern European ancestry and things like that. I know that when you're young you mentioned that your mother and your parents were pretty pretty cold. Can you tell us about your childhood because I think it does inform some of the things that happened later in your life. Yeah I reflected a lot about it because the bottom line is when you you think about people would bothers people or what is get sort of in the way of them. Becoming fully developing is usually the baggage they take within from childhood and my baggage was not necessarily all bad was disciplined. It was sort of a citizen in that the extremely long period of the delayed gratification and whether harm was was the lack of emotional love that was just done. I can't remember member any and that was somewhat typical of Germans in post World War Two but not necessarily to the extreme that my parents took it. No my pounds dislike didn't manage to even hug and kiss or say I love you. That just was completely not part of my childhood. Not Having had that you. You don't know you don't know what you're missing. You don't know what you should have had. The took me a long time to get to this partially because of having to reflect on my past partially when I was writing reading the book I was thinking about all this in the light bulb went on. And how I'm sort of making up for this I have a late comer. Six year old child in she gets mother would lawson kissing. I love you because I know it is very important. I think that's extremely important and I think a lot of people would agree that as well and there's story in the book where your stomach hurt and your mom made you take the bus to the hospital which turned out to be an emergency appendectomy so it seems like early on you learned learned to ignore your emotions. You learn to ignore pain. This is just like totally bizarre. When you think about it what normal parent in this day and age would make their fifteen year? Old Teenager walked to the bus. I could walk straight anymore. The pain was bad as you go to the hospital and again again. That was anything that I thought was the wrong thing to do. This was just the way things worm and it wasn't in fact a an emergency appendectomy that it could be performed in the book by the way deep undercover is the tidal my secret life and tangled allegiances as a KGB spy in America for those a who are looking for that will link to that in the show notes.

So they erected the Berlin Wall to protect you over there from from the West German Fascist Cetera. And at that point in your childhood you saw a bright future ahead compared to capitalism right. You're thinking wow we have the socialist paradise going on. What's the dialogue in? Your head is a young man. There wasn't a dialogue. There was a monologue. All we ever got was a heavy does of Communist ideology. which as as you know is very appealing to young people? You know the whole idea that we all can live together. Be Nice with each other and make sure that the rich don't get too rich and everything is jointly owned wonderful. This is incredibly appealing to young minds. And since we didn't get any counter argument that stock and that was informally chatting with you about the stickiness of ideology boy. Oh boy the stock with a coke for a long time. It is I- contemporaries of mine even though they got royally screwed by the communist state are still deep down inside their communist. Yeah it seems like in your book again titled Deep On their recover. The school doesn't have any discussion. The truth comes down from the top and that played a part in once you became a spy when she became an operative you have this near Delusional usual confidence and very little emotional attachment which probably comes from your childhood as well as learning and propaganda and things like that and you talk about how this affected some of your early relationships and obviously you brought some of those patterns with you which no matter what anyone might look back. Twenty twenty hindsight sorta shows okay once he joined the communist Communist Party as a brilliant chemist. You got the knock on your door from the mystery. Guy Who still don't know who the heck that is of course they're looking for people like you right. Oh absolutely I mean I was also most inviting Was a standout. I got a national scholarship. I was active in the Communist Youth Movement. I was a member of the party at the time. They recruited me I am a spotless record. And then I fathered a child out of wedlock which by the way in those days. The party didn't like a lot in the normally they would've would've called Read me the riot act. Nothing happened so I was already out removed from the masses quote unquote and I was judged by. We're using a different yardstick. I had joined delete not necessarily knowing it but I know the nine. That's interesting so by the time you're in the KGB. You are already the untouchable to some extent inside the government and we see that in shows like the Americans were there busting people who are doing a bit of a racket at the supermarket in Soviet Russia the woman goes off and goes. You don't understand. This is how the whole country works. You reason you don't see it as because you're in the KGB and the two guys are sitting there that gives them a little bit of pause because they realize oh yeah we kind of do get special treatment. Maybe this is how people survive. Yes I was untouchable was above the law because I broke laws internally earliest well as in other countries. I wasn't courage to do things that you want supposed to do. Like watch Western television I was going to the West right but when I crossed the the border between East Germany and the Soviet Union I was always bypassing customs and Pasco control so I was young. President really feels good. Because I never liked rules. I really you know had a problem as a child and I almost got kicked out of school because I was rebellious until I learned to fit in otherwise you know life wouldn't be so good but when I got the official imprimature to break rules in support of a good 'cause you know it's having a cake and eat it too. which in real life doesn't has not been but for a while I added? Yeah I can see the lure for a young person doing that and when the KGB was recruiting they had you doing profiles on other students and on people. Well what we're those profiles. What are they having profile while the proof typically though what are they like just very general profile? I I strongly believe that this world SORTA exercises for them to determine how well I can judge others the KGB didn't do internal spying on he's trump's In it wasn't really very well targeted. Now when I profile people while in the United States I also had the angle too. Could they be useful to US US being the Soviet Union. And so how could they be recruited such as they have weaknesses they have ideological preferences. They need money they have a drug habit owl any of the oil that stuff when I profiled my fellow students in those days Doug was the early beginnings and and was just like undercover work. WanNa one very very elementary. So they were just trying to see. Yeah how can you read people. Is there some sort of light reconnaissance but that it's it's basically a drive around to see what you can do. They sent you to West Berlin. When you're you grew up in east Germany you're kind of in this era especially post war? Not a lot of things are being rebuilt. There's a lot of propaganda coming down from the top. What was your first impression of West Berlin when you finally were able to go and see it firsthand? I don't know if I wrote that in the book if I didn't Nice should've because I told people on time ago than my first impression was oh wow they got caller and so I would tell people you're not. The West was a movie shotton Colin in the East they only black and white because with immediately hit you was that contrast between the Brown and the gray and all kinds of calls that were visible once you step out of the subway and appeared on Western territory. So it's kind of like going out of black and white movie and into a technicolor. Yeah indeed and that was enemy territory. Now go on ask question that would be. What did you figure out that might be better on the other side? Plus I did. There was a reason because they took all the wealth away from Third World countries. And so. That's why you had poverty in Africa and South America because the evil capitalists such as in England and the United States Franson West Germany. They became rich because they exploited the the rest of the world. You're listening to the Jordan Harbinger. Show with our guest. Jack Barsky. We'll be right back.

"The combat Gozo Dr nast of annoy Besse pass nasty, aka the KGB of the Soviet Union was established in March nineteen fifty four in Moscow. And those are the toughest words, I'm gonna say all show long. The KGB was the world's largest spy and state security machine involved in every aspect of life for the everyday people of the Soviet Union more than five hundred thousand people worked within the KGB at its peak. And there were thousands of agents also working as spies abroad, the main duties of the KGB were to gather intelligence and other nations conduct counterintelligence maintain the secret. Police the KGB military corps and the border guards suppress internal resistance and conduct electronic espionage. The KGB also enforced Soviet morals through torture imprisonment and executions and promoted Soviet ideology through propaganda and total control over the Soviet media. The KGB fell apart in the late eighties along with the rest of the Soviet Union. Officially dissolved in nineteen ninety one. Well, before it crumbled, it made life real real real rough for a lot of Russians and a lot of other people, and it's foreign agents infiltrated the ranks of the world's other national intelligence agencies, including the CIA in United States. The KGB also inherited the vast Soviet gulag system of forced labour camps from its Soviet intelligence predecessors. And there were a lot of predecessors. The KGB is one a long line of Russian secret police acronyms that regardless of the actual words always represented the same thing to the average Russian person fear and oppression Russian secret police, tortured and killed hundreds of thousands of people during the long reign of the various organizations, and we're gonna look at a lot of those organizations today, you've a brief overview of other nations secret police programs talk about some cool spy shitting.
