"Chinese could processing tumble last month to the lowest in two years And sources over neither told Bloomberg President Biden is Wayne and meeting with the cytochrome prince Mohammed bin Salman in a possible sign of thawing tensions What does it all mean Bob mcnally founder and president of rapid energy To the top story bob a thoin in relations Biden could meet MBS I'd probably that What does it say to the market and what might it mean for oil supply in reality You bet So we've been advising clients since March that there's this back channel negotiation going on Whereby there would be a reset in June between the United States and Saudi Arabia and the UAE about a lot of issues including oil but also Yemen and other things And as part of that OPEC plus would accelerate tapering We've been carrying a 30% odds I'm raising that now to 40% I'd like to see news of the trip confirmed We don't have confirmation that a deal has been struck But if the president goes I think odds of some form of faster tapering will go above 50% Now what does it mean OPEC plus has about 2.2 million barrels a day of spare according to our accounting One option would be to accelerate the tapering this plant you know And put the rest of the oil in Not all of that 2.2 By July or August right They meet June 2nd so they could lift as soon as July They could accelerate the quota increases beyond the four 32 Option B a bigger one would be for Saudi Arabia to do what it did in 2008 near the top And that is to go all in and maximize surges production to two 12 or 12.2 million barrels a day Right Those are the two options That's what's at stake Should this materialize I mean I think back to Valentine's Day in 1945 on the USS Quincy which was an American cruise ship The Saudi king Abdullah Z meeting with president Franklin D. Roosevelt at the time and they engaged in a deal that would last to this day which is basically America provides security guarantees in return for affordable energy If this kind of reset does not come to fruition what is the potential upside here for crude oil and Brent specifically Well I think crude oil prices and product prices are heading higher whether or not there's a reset The only thing that's going to stop this upward trend unfortunately is demand retrenchment probably in the context of a recession That's just the math of this As long as we're disrupting so much Russian oil China is going to come back from COVID shutdowns Demand there's no sign of significant demand response to already high prices It's going higher What a retrenchment or a faster tapering might do is give us a dip to buy But the prices will go higher until we hit recession and demand declines So bob the other aspect over now there's a couple of things in Chinese restocking via Russian fuel but I'm drawn to Javier blass's tweet And it touches on what you've said The world's oil spare capacity is inside Saudi Arabia The world's oil refining spare capacity is in China But bob oil refining is over two year low High tight is the supply side on the products for the world Or is it just a temporary tightness No it's structurally tight We've taken down a lot of refining capacity in the world and U.S. million and a half barrels a day in the last couple of years And also we've disrupted Russian product exports Gas oil vacuum gas oil nafta gasoline And so and China has imposing quotas on its teapots and is crimping its exports at least at least currently And it has had supply side problems as well affecting the refining like every other sector So no we're structurally low on refining We're tight and we don't think a root ramp up and runs either China or in the U.S. as we come back from maintenance which we will is enough to solve this problem Bob I'm looking at the gasoline prices in the U.S. and the average number came out It's sort of a weekly data point that everybody rallies around And we're looking at four 59 a gallon I mean those are record highs The administration is trying to ease those with some legislation that went through the house Is that going to work And if that's not going to work given your experience what could work Yeah So the record high gasoline and diesel prices in the United States are political problem number one for the Biden administration This house anti gouging bill is a message bill even the leaders realize it's going nowhere It'll die like most things do in the Senate So I don't think it'll ever get to President Biden's desk And the only thing unfortunately is going to stop this I think is prices getting so high And remember earnings are up We're more efficient So although our record high and prices we haven't really reached the maximum burden yet that oil prices place on the consumer if you think about where wages are and how much energy expenditures are of as a percentage of income So we can still go higher and we think we will And that will be necessary to begin to dissuade consumption Another thing you're going against here is pent up demand People are sick and tired of COVID and restrictions They want to drive They want to fly the fuel They want to get the United States expecting big big demand season big driving season this summer Absolutely And that'll drive the crack spreads We've seen they're going into the gas rather than the days of bob very quickly We've got a couple of other big issues to get through If Biden meets MBS does no peck fall off the table A lot of anxiety in our region about no pack why is it there How real is it So balance those two for me Yes if President Biden meets with conference Mohammed bin Salman no peck will remain a very low probability We have 35% The White House has already poured cold water on nope when it passed out of the house So I think that will.

"Kindness and humanity. Now today's stories. Our first story Israel and its Arab partners took numerous steps to try to avoid violence during Ramadan and Passover. But for Palestinians, only so much can change without the dignity they seek from a political settlement. In late March Israeli president Isaac Herzog met with Jordan's king Abdullah in a rare visit, and Israeli prime minister Naftali Bennett followed up with a phone call days before Ramadan to discuss measures to ensure prayer gores, access to Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque. Israel also reached out to the United Arab Emirates and Egypt which, with Jordan, share an interest in avoiding a repeat of the chain of events nearly a year ago that saw heavy handed Israeli police tactics in Jerusalem help fan mass Palestinian protests and trigger a Gaza war, so why then is violence erupting once again in the holy city? Analysts say the pursuit of calm and diplomacy alone can't prevent conflict in the absence of a political settlement rooted in dignity. My Roth zone sign, at the international crisis group in Tel Aviv notes, there were lessons learned from 2021 to handle the situation better, Israeli police have changed their tactics, and have tried to keep things calm the first two weeks of Ramadan. But at some point, even if there are areas of improvement, things will always bubble up if there is no progress on the political side to the conflict. This story was reported by Taylor Locke in.

"I mean, that could be not a good idea. I don't know. And now, you know what, I kind of see where you're going at with the speed thing, maybe it wasn't that dangerous. Yes. He's got one foot over the edge right now. It just seems lighting is about short side. If the torque actually had $20 billion in, you know, a safe. That was before the speed highlight. It might be more than that. But that's probably like, oh, they don't have that. That money doesn't. I guess that's what it could be if they gave him access to it. He's like, I could turn this into 20 billion. It's just out of nowhere. It's like, man, this is so unnecessary. And it's like, okay, I think he has an argument that the Tor could update their media rights and relations. They could modernize some things, the leverage has worked as far as competition goes. The pip is an example of that. The key chick alliance. The business top ten just finished up. All the every single person has gone up, all the bonuses doing this, though, also. The FedExCup came around in 2007, that money has continually gone up like the tour executive job is to go out there into the market and create opportunities for the players. And this competition from the PGA and the STO has been a net good I think for making the tour like lighting a fire a little bit. I think communication wise though. I think it's the immediacy. If they had a plan of we're going to roll it out over this many years, it's kind of like they bump maybe some stuff up a little bit, but I think this money was gonna be coming. Like the TV deal, I don't think it probably actually players probably don't even think about this. Probably cost themselves some money in the TV deal or some clauses within that TV deal that are like, hey, if some of these rival leagues get off the ground, like CBS, MBC, are we going to be on the hook to broadcast, I'll say, because he's long been the joke. Broadcast Tom hoagie went in golf tournaments, but I think the leverage has helped the timeline, but I really don't believe that the tour all of a sudden was like, oh my God, we need to pay the players more. Or they're gonna leave. I think it was like the information does not flow very well. I think a lot probably due to ignorance from the players more so than the communication from the tour. I don't know. Probably both sides can understand it better. Regardless, things are happening. Right? Pip stuff. They're like, okay, we need to make sure that the top players feel like they're being rewarded. This is a definition of like it's like Phil that you have an argument on that stuff. The definition of overplaying your hand. Like yo man, I also like to live dangerously. Like what what's the point of and it's like the collateral damage is just like, yo, it's tough to root for you like that. Why did you have to go that extreme with this? It's so out of left field in a way to just lighting it all on fire to go to Saudi Arabia to collect a paycheck for playing the Saudi international in king Abdullah economic city at royal green's country club, whatever it is. And to use the phrase that the tour, which is not a thing, by the way, has obnoxious greed is like, dude, how are we? How do you sell this to people, huh? Go back in time, maybe walking into a bad example here. But for you guys, the year 2012, is there any tournament any moment that stands out to you off the top of your head? I would say the Ryder Cup. Okay, but like PGA Tour event. Is there a masters? Was something that happened in 2012 that you remember. For me, it's Phil shooting 64 at pebble and Tiger shooting 75 in the final group. Tiger and Phil playing in the final group at pebble. That's what that event was. Now, he's in Saudi Arabia that same week taking a paycheck and referring to something else as obnoxious greed. How much money has filled earned? These are $95 million on the course. Off the course, the numbers are probably staggering. Forbes reported in 2016 that he made $53 million, 2016 was probably not the peak year of his income. So if we're talking Phil's probably brought in between 508 100 million over the course of his life along maybe 20 billion for all we know by his count. So like, how can anything how can you take that money at age 51 and call this obnoxious greed? It's not good. It's such a tough look. I think we got a lot more to get that, but.

"Will soon be so it's almost November. It's almost a time for the vote. Oh, yeah. And Texas, one of the things Texas will be voting on. Is a proposition three, which is to add a clause to the Texas constitution. Oh. This clause would essentially make it illegal for local and state governments to impose any limits ever on religious services. Oh Jesus Christ. In their constitution? In the constitution. Oh, Texas. This includes, yeah, no public health orders can shut down anything. Yeah. So this is obviously a response to the fact that some crazy liberals were trying to shut down church just because of a global pandemic that was killing millions of people. Yeah, no big deal. Right. It's probably fake anyway. Yeah, probably. Anyway, I wish it was. Oh, wouldn't that be great? So yeah, that's happening. Prop three does have its critics, including religious critics. There are religious people who are saying that this goes way too far and that guess what? We've got plenty of protections in place. Not least of which being the constitution of the United States of America, but, you know, there are also protections in place in the state law, but it's not enough. It needs to be enshrined in the state's constitution. Everybody loves a constitutional amendment. I just want to go too far. I just want, okay. Lucien greaves, satanic temple, have some fun with this. If this shit goes through, fucking start practicing. You know what I mean? Like put it in your bylaws that one of your official meetings every month has to be done in traffic. If they can't put any restrictions on you, get creative. Okay, read it again. I don't know. Look, I haven't read the wording of the actual. But what are they saying? It's basically that government state and local governments can not impose any limit limits on religious services. Now, I don't know how far you can take that. I would have to, you know, a legal scholar would have to read the actual text of the thing. Right. But I think that probably there's a, they're not foreseeing the consequences. I say volume. Right. Just straight out. Yeah. Your services are at midnight. Yeah. You know, every night. And they're mobile. And they're mole. They're not even just get the city. Just get a city to want to pass a law. Yeah. Or shut you down for nuisances. Right. And it's like, no. And then. Yeah. So the state and make money. Yeah, exactly. That's just free money for you, satanic temple. Get out there. Enjoy. It doesn't have to be anything too complicated, right? Like just totally disturb the peace. Yeah. They keep fucking doing it. Yeah, every single night. You are a religion with it. Meets every night.

They're pretty excited about it. Well, I have another Islam story. Oh. Fun. Over there in Saudi Arabia. We've been paying attention to Saudi Arabia and they're attempts to liberalize their country. They're getting wacky over, you know, do crazy sort of things you can do in the west. This isn't your grandpa's Saudi. Oh no. No, no, no. Because up until this time, and actually it's still pretty much the rule. They're segregated beaches in Saudi Arabia, meaning male female men and women. Sure. Yeah, that kind of segregated beach. There's a lot of ways we could segregate people. Yeah, you're right, you're right. Men and women, different beaches, women, not I don't think even on their beaches with just other lady folk they could disrobe too much. No. No, they're still in the burkinis. Exactly. And well, there's a, they're calling it the king Abdullah economic city. This is their Dubai plan. Yeah, I think so. Okay. It's in an area outside of Jeddah. And anyway, there's something that they call pure beach. Oh. And for only $80 a person. You can enter pure beach. Where there's music, which public news music was not allowed up until recently. Oh wow. But they have music. Oh my God. There's dancing. I guarantee that's not allowed anywhere. They have an inflatable water park that spells out Saudi Arabia in English from above. Oh my. And it is some women wear bikinis. Wow. They can smoke shisha. I don't know if you can, you probably can smoke that everywhere. But is that how sheesh? I don't know what it is, though. Okay. And there were performers dancing to western music on a lit stage. That happens when the sun sets. And it is just like people kind of are like yeah, that's getting spicy. Crazy. Apparently, I think it said something about it's still like this is what's nuts about some of these things. If you're from Saudi Arabia, you can't go. Right, of course not. And this is for this is for tourists. They're trying they're trying desperately to appeal to more than just business travelers and pilgrims coming to visit Mecca. They are trying to develop into a tourism destination so if you're a Saudi national, get yourself a drone and do some flybys. Check it out. Pure beach. Scantily clad. People just singing and rolling about and dancing and frolicking in the going down full English lettered water slides. Sorry ridiculous. It seems like to be honest, the Arabic.

"All these other people with these counts that have been hiding so that they don't have to pay taxes so that we can hold them accountable. You know, if you as the average person figure out how you can hide your money from the government and they find out about it, they will crush you and they will put you in prison. But nobody wants to say anything about these filthy rich people in our country that are doing that and getting away with it in these offshore accounts. That should have never been allowed in the first place because it was only established specifically to allow rich people to hide their assets. And that is bullshit. I don't get to get away with that in my taxes. So they shouldn't either. Yes, what kinds of says pendo purpose show the wealthy hearting trillions. Not only that, you know, Donald Trump's name is on there. Well, I mean, very well, could be. And you know that Mitch McConnell and Joe Manchin, their names are on that. The Kavanaugh's names on there. Well, you know what, when you're talking about somebody like Joe Manchin, nothing would surprise me now. You know, I mean, we now know that Joe Manchin over the course of the last ten years has basically received over $5 million in dividends from coal companies. Joe Manchin doesn't give a shit about us. You know, and that's the thing is these things coming out will start to paint a real picture of who these people are. You know, I can't do Jack shit about the prime minister of the Czech Republic. I can't do Jack shit about the person that's connected to Vladimir Putin that does this yet. Because at the end of the day, they're not friendly assets of America. But we in the United States of America need to know the names of every single person in this country who has been hiding their assets and their money to not pay their fair share in taxes. And then they need to be made to pay their fair share in taxes. And then we should create laws to make this illegal for what they're doing, because that's absolute bullshit. You know, they take their money and they hide it so they don't have to pay taxes. I don't get to do that. You don't get to do that. And nobody right now that's on this podcast gets to do that. But once again, when you're at a certain level in terms of wealth, apparently you're allowed to get away with stealing from our government. And that shit needs to stop. Are they going to release the American names that are on that? Well, I would assume that that's what's got to be next. I mean, right now they've already talked about certain people from other countries, but this is over 330 people that are absolutely some of the richest people on the face of the earth. And, you know, we need to know. And oh, by the way, I mean, you know, if king Abdullah from Jordan is buying properties in the United States of America, you know, I mean, I'm at the point where like, you know, you got people from other countries coming in here, buying up our land? I mean, you know, what about Americans? You know, I mean, this is stuff that's being allowed it's really a bunch of bullshit. And it shouldn't be allowed. And if Mitt Romney is on the look anybody, anybody in the United States of America, if they're a member of Congress, if they are an actor of musician, I don't give a shit. Nobody should have the ability to basically hide their assets and get away with pay it without paying taxes..

"Saudi Arabia. A powerful neighbour in the throes of multiple crises. Deb Amos has been covering Saudi Arabia for years. She's an award winning foreign correspondents at NPR and a professor at Princeton. She recently talked with David Rondell. He was chief of Mission at the U. S Embassy in Riyadh. And his author of Vision or Mirage, Saudi Arabia, at the Crossroads Way, saw Ah, remarkable thing on television, the Abraham accords. It's a big deal, not a peace deal. The missing player, of course with Saudi Arabia, although we know that Saudi has back channel relations With Israel. The Saudis have opened their airspace for the first time for Israel to fly to Dubai where you live, and I wondered if there's a timeline for the Saudis. Are they out? For good or is there something that has to happen for them to sign on to this? The first answer is that the Saudis are a status quo power and they want to have peace and stability in the Middle East because they have a lot to lose. They actually liked things the way they are so anything that rocks the boat, whether it's Arab nationalism from NASA or bin Laden and his jihad or the Arab spring or the Arab Israeli dispute. Is something that they would like to see resolved, So they have a longstanding interest in getting this thing resolved, and they have tried more than once to do that. The previous two Kings, King Fahd and King Abdullah both proposed peace plans, which Pushed the Arabs as far as they could at that time towards an acceptance of some sort of a two state solution, So the Saudis have an interest a longstanding interest in resolving this problem. The immediacy of wanting to solve the problem has grown because the costs to them of not having relations with Israel has increased. That is to say. Their lack of trade, their lack of tourism, their lack of investment opportunities. These economic opportunity costs have become greater, particularly as a result of the Cobain which has damaged the Saudi economy. So at the same time, the benefits of not having your relationship have gone down there. Older generation still gets a lot of psychic value from being part of the Arab nationalist movement of feeling sympathy for the Palestinians. But the younger people do not share that. I've talked to a lot of them and most people under 30. They say, You know, I'd like to go to Israel. I'd like to go there. I'd like to see it. I'd like to be trading with them. I'd like to do business with them, then. This may sound harsh to some years, but it's what I hear is that they say, you know, Look, these guys have not been able to solve this problem. We can't solve it for them. We did. It's the cost of this are too much for us now And also they blamed the Palestinians. They say that Palestinians weren't all that grateful to us. They backed Saddam Hussein in the Gulf War against us so Anyway, There's less sympathy there than you might expect, and people are willing to reevaluate the cost benefit the other things there. Saudis do feel threatened by Iran. And increasingly, they feel threatened by the Islamists which our collection of Muslim brotherhood, sympathetic movements and governments, one of which happens to be turkey, and I think if you talk to some people in Israel, they will tell you that they see Turkish expansion Certainly into Syria, as much of a threat is and maybe more of a threat because the Turks are a lot closer to them than the Iranians, and then the final feature that I think would move the Saudis is their desire to maintain a close relationship with the United States. They depend on the United States for their security. That hasn't changed and they need to have a good relationship with whoever's in the White House. And they believe that they understand that we would like to see this Paul and they have every time we've tried to do something they've usually stand. Not almost always. They supported our Efforts Now you the bottom line is are they going to get out in front and I would say there that they're not going to get out in front. They're going to wait for a consensus. They would be more than happy to create that census either through the Arab League or through the Muslim World League, But they're not going to give their enemies which is the Iranians and the Islamists. The forces. If you will the factions in the Middle East that opposed them. They don't want to give them a stick to beat them over the head by saying You're that you just betrayed all the Palestinians so they will wait. For a consensus, and that's before they make a no overt gesture to normalize relations. But in the interim, they are taking a lot of incremental steps like you mentioned. You talked about the overflights, which haven't happened in 70 years, and now they're happening. There was a TV show, which you probably know about the mother of Aaron TV show that appeared on Saudi television, where there was It was about a Jewish family in the Arab world, and they were actually talking Hebrew on Saudi television. That certainly wouldn't happened five years ago. And to me. One of the more interesting things was the fact that the former justice minister of Saudi Arabia are religious figure in Saudi Arabia. The justice minister is a religious shake. This fellow now the head of the Muslim World League, went to Auschwitz for the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and made a number of speeches denouncing Holocaust deniers. That's a big change for coming out of Saudi Arabia, the two generations that you mentioned the 60 year olds versus the 30 year olds. Perfectly describes the generation between the King and the Crown Prince we've seen in the past that when Mohammed bin Salman gets a little too far ahead on the Palestinian issue that the king Mix another expected appearance and pulls it back. And so I think my question is I have read the people say they won't have the same relations with the Israelis until the king dies. And I wondered if if you thought that it would be that long if it is the king who can't quite bring himself to do this or something else has to happen. And I think you've downed it. I think that the king You know, he's not 60. He's 80. He's very much from the generation that it's in his DNA. If you will, that you have to support the Palestinians that it's an abandonment of the Palestinians. You know, there've been a lot of surprises in Saudi Arabia. So you never say never, but I would be surprised if the king Changed his mind unless something happened. I mean, the king. The King has said very clearly, he's happy, too. Recognized Israel. If a few things happen if there is some kind of a settlement that the Palestinians are happy with, if they get some kind of a state, probably if there's some kind of resolution for the refugee problem, these are issues which have been on the table for a long time. So the King is not saying I don't want to deal with the Israelis. She's saying that We have a plan. These are the commitments that we'd like to see. And if those are met will have peace. I don't see him abandoning those in the near future. No. Let me come back to the sun Mohammed bin Salman, usually known as M. B s. It was a letter written in the financial Times at Malcolm Rifkin wrote it former UK defence on a foreign minister on DH, he writes. Once again, Mohammed bin Salmon's unpredictable behavior is becoming a cause for concern. This is not about Jamal A Shoji, but it's about Mohammed bin Naif onside algebra. NBS is now bearing down on these two men, both who had high and powerful positions in the government, and it is causing concern in Western capitals. The State Department In a rare rebuke to the Saudis have defended both of these men. Why do you think this is such a big deal for NBS? He knows that Western capitals don't like this. They felt an alliance. Certainly with Mohammed benign if he did a lot to quell Al Qaeda in the kingdom and was a partner with intelligence..

Jordan's prime minister spoke with Steve Inskeep. Omarosa's is a longtime Jordanian political figure who is now a top official beneath Jordan's King Abdullah. Jordan exists in a very tough neighborhood and it's this neighborhood's been tough for you. Decades, Jordan borders Syria and Iraq and also Israel. If you look at a map, you see that Jordan touches the occupied West Bank, which is called that because it is the West Bank of the Jordan River. The Westbank is territory that Jordan controlled until Israeli troops took it in 1967. Jordan is one of the few Arab countries that have since made a peace treaty with Israel. But it is watching with alarm is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promises to an ex portions of the West Bank. Israel maintains that it has both security needs and historic ties to that land, while the Palestinians have long lived there wanted for a future state. What happens if Israel begins annexing territory in the occupied West Bank is the prime minister. Netanyahu has promised to do Well, we hope it won't happen because Jordan on his Majesty the king. We have been for a just and peaceful settlement in the region, which includes a two state solution. With the Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. Any unilateral action undermines that and puts the whole region and if I might say the world in a dicey situation, this is not in anybody's interest, frankly at all, and If the two state solution becomes not viable because of this annexation, then my question is what is alternative? What his other option two the Israelis visit.

What happens if this annexation goes ahead is Jordan in a position of saying we will advocate a one state solution in which Palestinians would seek their rights within the Israeli state? Well. Jordan has historically been committed to a two state solution, and it is still a viable solution. If Israel does not go ahead with annexation. If it does, it's creating new facts on the grounds that will undermine the two state solution. And by undermining the two states of solution.

Some figures on the Israeli right have been asked when you take land in the occupied West Bank. What happens to the people Do you end up with stateless people?

"We're talking football here like King Abdullah on ESPN 1000 ESPN Chicago at You wanna join the conversation calls at 3123323776 I also have a NBA player that I think Bulls fans will want to root for when the playoffs start back up in the N B A. I will tell you about who that player is coming up in a couple minutes, But we're talking about pro football focus on ESPN. They combined forces to release a ranking of NFL rosters and we're looking at the rosters in the NFC North. And in the NFC North. This is how it ranks 12th the Packers or 12 the Vikings or 17th the lines or 19th The Chicago Bears 21st. I think if we dissect all of this different conversation, aboutthe rosters all this different stuff all the information the I think the one conclusion I continued to draw from all the preview stuff heading towards this season. Is that OK? You might have a point. And I also may agree with that point that the Bears are not the worst team in the division based on the rosters. Based on what pro football Focus suggests based on the grades in the last season and grades from previous seasons. I get that. What are people underestimating? How good the lines might be. When I say how good I'm not saying they're going to be 12 and four. Listen to what I'm saying. I don't think that they're a team that's like a five win team, and I think that's what we saw with this division heading into last season. Remember the projections for last season football. Outsiders had every team in the NFC North projected to be 500 hate name. They projected every team because they thought based on the analytics. The margin of victory between the Vikings, packers, bears and lions. It was going to be so close that all the teams we're going to be about the same, and I think we're going to kind of have that again this season. I don't think the lines and the Bears are far off from the Vikings and the Packers and I think you know, pro football focus shows the Packers as 1/12 best roster, but then you go down 17 19 21st. You get the other three teams to me. That's pretty close. I think people are slippy. We hear too much here in Chicago that the lines are terrible. You know Matthew Matthew Stafford before he was hurt last year was having a pretty dang good year. I think people underestimate that. I agree with you. I think that the Lions will be better than the three and 12 team that they were last season. I think they're closer to an eight team. Point. So are the bears that there's air, also in 18. Sure, so I don't think the Lions are going to come out and win the division, but ultimately I think that they are because of injuries. They were three and 12 team last season, and I think 3 12 and one, whatever they tied one game, But ultimately you know what I mean. I think that they're closer to a 500 team. I think that you know for the Lions. The Bears have dominated in the last few years, Like like Matt Maggie knows how to beat the Lions. So I feel like the Bears will still have their number. But ultimately there still will be a decent team. I think those games will be tougher. There's divisional games. They're always gonna be tougher. I still think the ranking is Vikings. Packers bears lions As Faras, The division goes The Lions are getting better. Let me ask you this if we look at the offensive side of the ball Quarterback who has the edge the Bears of the lines. You can pick your quarterback. Your suit. George. Who would you like a biscuit or folds? What would you like? You know, I'll take fools. Okay, Strabinsky and and who is the better quarterback Matthew Stafford or Nick Foles? Well, probably Stafford. Probably. Yeah. Matthew Stafford, that CNN's okay, So listen. You do know the room could stay healthy. Okay, So, Safford, That's the answer is Come on, Don't be. Don't be a hater on Matthew Stafford. Pretty good coin. You really think that Stafford unfolds is a flip of the coin? I think that Audi here is gonna be staffers got a bad back. You have.

I'm still taking the bears on that one still taking the Bears. It drops off the table with Miller and gave your Robertson is better than it up. Kenny Golladay. Yeah, He's much better.

You understand that I'm agreeing with you, but I'm still taking out Robinson now with without getting into it, So in depth plea, I need the lines. Offensive line is better than the bear's. Yes, they played better. I mean, Stafford gotta go off the grades. I'm going off radio, right? Your players of the 5 17 I agree with you. I don't want to fight. You need to fight me over here.

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, backed by the king, moves for absolute power
"It is easy to forget that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Bin Abdulaziz. Al Sowed is not actually technically ruler of Saudi Arabia. That title belongs formerly to his elderly Father King Salman however since his appointment as crown prince in two thousand seventeen. It has been widely understood that. Nbs often known is the heir designate. Power behind the throne and at the age of thirty four very much the future of Saudi Arabia in this unofficial role mb has furnished considerable cause for concern he has overseen a terrible onslaught against Yemen and a blockade of Qatar. Neither of which appear to have accomplished much. He has interred dozens of his fellow royalty. For a time in a Ritz hotel and more or less kidnapped the prime minister of Lebanon perhaps most infamously. Nbs is widely supposed responsible for the murder of Washington. Post columnist. Jamal Khashoggi even by those standards. This week's palace intrigue in Riyadh is remarkable. Several members of the court appear to have been arrested at MBA's instruction including one of his uncles and one of his cousins dozens more army officers and civil servants are also reported to have been rounded up east this NBA swatting a coup. D'etat conducting one of his own. If he does manage to reach the throne when King Solomon's time comes. What does he want to do with it and is in BS? Perhaps not quite the Mariah Carey loving modernizer. He would have us believe. This is the foreign desk when you bring in Mariah Carey and all these singers and pay them views amount of money but you do not have an any universities anyplace to learn music. There is no department in any Saudi university to learn. Play ride to a drama making this these other forms that you should look for. And whether this massive youth constituency what she has to some extent manage to bring behind him is still behind him in five years time because young people need to get jobs. They need to be able to get married. They can't subsistence promises forever. So I think Basch is going to be the key determinant his credibility rather than some of the things that I looked with more interested in the book. We must remember that. Donald Trump has given unequivocal support. D'amato Vince on who is heavily implicated in the killing of the journalist. Jamal Hasha he. Trump has had his back on that one and I think as as long as trump remains in power that this relationship will continue quite strongly. You're listening to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Miller on today show. I'm joined by Ali Al Ahmed and Laura James Ali. Ahmed is a Saudi Scala. The Institute for Gulf Affairs joins us from Washington DC. Laura James is senior Middle East analyst at the Global Advisory Firm Oxford Analytica Ali. Al Start with you and I'll start with well it's not always an easy question to answer with Saudi Arabia's concerned which is the the pretty basic one of as far as we know what has been going on this week Mohammed bin Salman the heir apparent of King. Solomon who has a lot of political ambitions obviously has members of the ruling family who are his rivals and they do not want to see him become king if they would like to see him ousted some just by talking and some by plotting so what has happened is Hamad discernment is extremely insecure about that and he took measures to stop any attempt to remove him. We have two groups here those who are talking and then the sort of speaking ill of Like his uncle Ahmad but Abdelaziz who who thinks that he has better in terms of becoming king and you have his cousin especially the younger ones who rallied around the his main rival. Hamad bin naive to try to dislodge him for power by by force even and that is why we have seen these steps of arrest and monitoring hundreds of members on family who are eyeing the throne Laura to bring you in his they one fundamental thing looking behind this extraordinary shakespeare in intrigue. Is it a reasonable assumption that MBBS is trying to nail down his future in anticipation that King Mohammed who is eighty four years old and not in good health? Con- last forever. I think he's done really since he became Crown Princeton before has been based on that assumption. It's been about shoring up his position within the family and I think if when his father succeeded nobody would have predicted that he could have done it. This effectively. He is essentially unchallenged. Do we understand. If the differences between the rival factions are actually political or is this basically a more atavistic. Instinctual family feud. I'm not sure that you can draw the distinction very clearly in Saudi Arabia between family in politics the two very much Banda with each other. I would say one difference between Mohammed bin Salman. His rivals is that he thinks that the anyway food. Saudi Arabia is essentially for one person to be in clear charging for that person to him whereas some of the people who oppose him wants to get back to a more consensual style family managed rule and Schering of resources and consensus in enslave change whereas if a political as well family reasons bin Salman says no that model work for Saudi Arabia. Dunga all these possible to be clear on rich factions of the house of sowed supporting. Nbs this point. Does he actually have the numbers? I think? So the most important in Saudi government and the ruling. Saudi Arabia is not even the ruling family anymore. It was about power previously. The model like Laura speaking about the there were centers of power at King. Abdullah had the national guard was his own militia guns so he can force his His agenda and his position and so on the delayed crown prince was also minister of defense so he had the army under his control so he can push his agenda and most importantly then the ministry of the interior with late conference knife had the interior ministry. Which has the largest number of security personnel and across the country and so he can use that to push himself to the throne in all of these people reach the throne. Some some did some died before they they got to to become king now all of these powers the Army National Guard and the Interior Ministry has been gutted and removed. Everything that's powerful about. It has been moved to something called the State Security Agency and the control of bin Salman so our bin Salman controls all the military and security apparatus in the country. So who is his real challenge? No one they can speak. They can talk about. They cannot do very much. There are members of the family who want to see him out. This is not strange to the Saudi ruling family King Faysal was shot and killed by his own nephew. King Salad was overthrown by his brothers. And also there was an assassination attempt on his life after he was deposed and expelled. This is nothing new in the history of the family so I expect to see some harsh measures against some of those younger princess like Nawaf bin Ni- F- Who was arrested and Mohammed bin? Naif who is basically the boss the boss of this of this of these people because he has the best chance in rivaling Ahmed bin Salman let us remember. It was the Obama Administration C. i. a. A and Obama who brought Hamad Knife as the future king and gave him a lot of accolades And supported him and tell trump came and push 'em B. S. INSTEAD AND MR. I'm mad but was pushed out and he still. Mr Benign has a lot of support in Washington in day democratic side. So that was the fear that MBBS had Laura how much might MB S.'s? Stature in court or credibility in the court of being damaged by his own somewhat petulant impulsive behavior over the years whether that's launching this war in Yemen his involvement? In the murder of Jamal Khashoggi would there be a concern in the rest of the court that he might be quite the loose cannon concerns among some parts of the ruling family and very strong concerns internationally. I think there are two distinct issues. One is about foreign policy mistakes. And as you've said in terms of Yemen in terms of Qatar in terms of the confrontation with Iran and particularly in Lebanon. It seemed that. His foreign policy initiatives haven't worked very well. I think within the country that's less important like the Ritz Carlton and this latest. Crackdown are actually less important than the nuts and bolts of vision twenty thirty which is his transformation plan so Mohammed bin Salman has stepped forward and said we know we need to change. The oil is going to run out. We've got to move into a new era. Diversify the economy. Be ready for this. Get Jokes Young People Change Society? I need a huge amounts woods that intensive transforming the way in which Saudi Arabia

An Interview with Jason Rezaian
"Jamal kashogi journalists who was brutally murdered by the Saudis in in Turkey, who's your colleague at the Washington Post, use your friend. You wrote a great piece about the total lack of response to that horrific crime in the total double standard of US policy towards Iran and Saudi Arabia, and that took a lot of shift for that piece. And I continue to because people come to me and said, well, you know, you're an apologist for the same regime that took you prisoner first and foremost, I I've got no love for his Llamas Republic of Iran. Yeah. But I'm alive and Jamal kashogi is not he was murdered in the most despicable inumane way that you can imagine. And you expect that sort of thing in a country like Iran in the you know, dark corners of of a prison. You don't expect that in a in a consulate, you know, within the. You know, biggest city of one of our NATO allies. Yeah. Right. So I think that there is this massive double standard. There always has been everybody knows about it. But you know, I always thought. Yeah. Just assume not that we're going to like going, you know, jump into the warm embrace of Tehran and forget about Riyadh and LV. But like, let's even the playing field just a little bit. Yeah. So it was interesting because we took a lotta shit for this, obviously because it was our policy to essentially say to the Saudis, the you gonna have to figure out how to share this neighborhood, and the more you because some of these conflicts, you know, Iran is precipitating, but some the Saudis are escalating as well. And it's a back and forth. And that if you guys don't try to figure out some way to cool the temperature down here, you don't have to get along. But like you also don't need to be at war and multiple countries right now, Iran and Saudi Arabia through their proxies are fighting in most countries. In the region in some men. So wasn't question of shifting sides to Ron at all which is what the Saudis, and they're kind of proxies in Washington would say it was about trying to find some degree of balance, and we tried very hard. And I haven't talked about the so much publicly but in twenty fifteen and sixteen to say to them open up a channel. And by the way, we were sitting to the radiance to you know, you guys need to talk to each other. Yeah. And I remember when we went to Riyadh for one of our last trips through we had been our last year we had an early twenty sixteen we made this case to them. We laid it out. We said look people that we think would talk to you on the Iran inside. And all we got was, you know, we're going to confront them in Yemen. Right. Was that from NBA it was from yesterday. Right. And it's been young and say, he's just kind of pop off about Yemen. And and, you know, the king is saying, and I always wondered, you know, King Abdullah hated the Iranians to, but he was a little bit more pragmatic guy. And it's an interesting question. Because essentially what happens is we tried to facilitate some capacity for there to be. Some conversation at least that like whatever you think about the geopolitics. This is not good for the hundreds of millions of people in Yemen who could die in a famine because the RG see in who these are fighting against the Saudis rotties and their proxies in Yemen. So just if you wanna just talk about saving lives and just put aside the geopolitics of it like figuring out where to cool things off. It'd be in the interests. And what's interesting is, you know, the Saudis Emirati is pushing back against that. They got everything they wanted in the Trump administration totally sided with them. You know, one hundred percent on their side on every question. And look what it's gotten them right there deeper into the quicksand in Yemen. They're opening fucking embassies in Damascus. Yeah. You know? So they they got what they wanted. And guess what they're not taking back Syria. They're not even their objectives in Yemen. So they're proving that they're just punching themselves out here completely.
