"Contact us. There's so much news happening around the world that were somehow supposed to stay on top of. That's why we launched the big take. It's a daily podcast from Bloomberg and iHeartRadio that turns down the volume a bit to give you some space to think. I'm west Kosovo. Each weekday I dig into one important story and talk about why it matters. Listen to the big take on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcasts or wherever you listen. It's hard to keep up with breaking global business news that was a mixed day here in the states. Volatility is sky high. But at Bloomberg, our season reporters and anchors make it look easy. You've been stocks hit a fresh record fares have basically been rendered obsolete. The right height dance is playing out on a belly of the curve. Are you worried about a wage price spiral?

"Days headlines, back to Tom. Thanks, Emma. After weeks of escalating tensions between Serbia and Kosovo, the Serbian army says it is at its highest level of combat readiness following claims that Pristina is preparing an attack on ethnic Serb areas in north Kosovo. The Serbian army has been put on a heightened state of alert with Kosovo multiple times in recent years. The last time in November, after the government claimed that several drones entered Serbian airspace from Kosovo, well, we're now joined by Monaco's Balkans correspondent guide alani, guy, why is trouble flaring up again? It seems a bit daft to say this, but this all started with a dispute over vehicle license plates. And Kosovo, the government and Pristina wanted all the ethnic Serbs who mainly live in the north of Kosovo to stop using Serbian issued number plates and start using number plates which were issued by the authorities in Pristina. And this is all part of Kosovo's attempts to show that it's a functioning independent state. Now this isn't the way the Serbia sees it, Serbia doesn't recognize Kosovo's unilateral declaration Declaration of Independence, which it made in 2008 and ethnic Serbs living in Kosovo don't generally recognize your authority of the government and pressure in there. So we had this row over number plates. That rumbled on. We ended up with situations like the entirety of the ethnic Serb contingent in the Kosovo police force resigning en masse, we've had all the ethnic Serb people who have worked in Kosovo institutions, resigning. We've also seen barricades going up on the ethnic Serb areas of Kosovo and the crossing points between Kosovo and Serbia. They've now been in place for two weeks. So we've got a very heightened state of tension and what isn't helping here are the reports that we're seeing in Serbian tabloid media who are basically saying that the authorities and Pristina are preparing to attack ethnic Serbs and that this is the final step in expelling all ethnic Serbs from Kosovo. So this is the excitable tabloid press at work here and you can imagine the impact that's having on the Serbs in north Kosovo and also within Serbia itself and it's giving the authorities in Belgrade the pretext to say right we're increasing the alerts and the state of our troops we're putting them on a high state of alert. We're moving artillery pieces closer to the border with the Kosovo. It's all very worrying. A lot of saber rattling, but nonetheless, when you've got this sort of rhetoric and those sort of high tensions at play, bad things can happen. So how is the international community reacting to this? It's been a bit slow to react to it over the Christmas break. It has to be said. We've now had a statement coming out of the EU's foreign affairs department saying that they're calling on the leaders of Kosovo and Serbia that is to say prime minister Albin courty of Kosovo, president Alexander vucic of Serbia to talk to deescalate to find a political situation to find a political solution to the situation rather than the situation escalating into violence. It needs to work a lot harder at getting the party around the tables and getting them to back down from these positions that they're taking. I mean, I've heard about what Serbia is doing. It's worth pointing out also that the government and Kosovo is telling the NATO peacekeeping force K four that if they don't remove the barricades that have gone up in north Kosovo, then the authorities and pristine will do it themselves. Now that's an obvious point where you're going to have conflict. If not with Serbia, then at least with the people who are Manning barricades in north Kosovo. So we're also seeing a change in Serbia's population makeup with the first results of the 2022 census just out. What has it told us? It's telling us that Serbia is losing people at a very rapid rate. Half a million people have left Serbia between now and the time of the last census, which was in 2011. So in just over a decade, half a million people have gone, that's 7% of the population. And you can imagine what portion of the population this is going to be. The people who are leaving the people who are mobile are going to be the youngest and brightest. And they have been going off to largely European Union countries, not waiting for Serbia to join the European Union. They're already finding their so called European future now. And this is leaving a lot of parts of Serbia. I would say apart from the capital Belgrade and the second city Novi sad. The depopulation is quite significant in Serbian am. Now guy, if you don't mind, as our Balkans correspondent, if we could hop to Croatia and end on a lighter note, it's hard to avoid a storm brewing there in a winter resort all to do with Sunday thing. So this is a patio, which is in a bay in Croatia. And this was originally the winter resort of the Habsburgs, and it still has that sort of slightly grand feel to it when you go to a patio. I often spend a little bit of summer just around the corner in a place called love ran. And it love run isn't quite so hey toy as a patia. But the locals who live in our patio are getting really quite exercised by the fact that they're seeing concrete blocks being installed on the rocks, which as basically crouch has a rocky coastline, the sea is beautiful, but there's a lot of rocks around. And the seamless concrete blocks installed, which they know is a prelude. These artificial sunbathing platforms being installed. And they're saying that this is going to ruin the traditional sort of hapsburg winter resort air of aphasia as the hospitality businesses try to basically expand and get more money. Well, there will be no sunbathing for you as you take over on the briefing tomorrow here in Midori house. Until then, guide lorna, thanks so much for joining us. You are listening to the briefing on monocle 24. Hey, you're back with the briefing with me, Tom Webb.

"Thing, Charlotte, let's talk about Ukraine, because I think that's very important. Now, you understand I'm an actual old cold warrior. I was in Germany when the wall fell as part of NATO, part of the United States forces there. For years, all I did was train on how to kill Russians, okay? So I'm not a Russian pal. I went over to Ukraine four times to train Ukrainian soldiers. There was a Ukrainian Polish battalion with my unit in Kosovo. I respect the Ukrainian people. I like them. It's most corrupt place I've ever been. I mean, I mean, Nigerian princes in awe of its corruption. And look, I understand there's a huge history there. I understand everybody's got their arguments. I don't think there's any good reason for Russia to invade with a couple armored cores and kill a bunch of people. And I don't have a problem with Ukrainians fighting back. And I don't have a problem. In theory, with Americans supporting them. However, you can't just dump $45 billion into Ukraine. That's crazy. And the idea that a McConnell says, it's a Republican's number one priority. Dude, it's not. It's not even in my top 5. I think there's a good argument to be made for supporting Ukrainian resistance to the Russians. No one's making that argument, okay? I'm a war college graduate in Midland. It was the army war college, the party war college. We could have used a turning points branch there. The thing is, where's our strategic objective? What are we doing? Look, I could be convinced. Again, I'm a guy who grew up learning how to kill Russians. I know how to kill a motor rifle regiment. Most people don't even know what one is. I

"Was which. The fact is, these two bills, they were historically probably two of the biggest labor bills to give rights to people in the workplace in a very, very long time. My conversation with representatives frankel and bustos continues after the break. I'm west Kosovo and this is Bloomberg. On the latest edition of the Bloomberg surveillance podcast, a conversation with Jeremy stretch of CIBC, three central banks report. The fed, the Bank of England, the ECB. There is a real dichotomy in terms of the inflation profiles that we're seeing from those requisite central banks and the pace of the moderation in terms of the Eurozone is very, very glacial in effect. And of course, as you quite rightly say, those core inflationary pressures are going to be pronounced over the medium run. And that is going to be a real difficulty for the European Central Bank. So I think in the context of some of the discussions you are having after the bed last night as to who has the greatest potential policy problem of policy dilemma, then I think the ECB definitely falls into that remit because, of course, as we know there are those fragmentation risks as well. So it's going to be very difficult to see how the CV is going to be able to square the circle by trying to type in policy, but without creating significant degrees of uncertainty against what is still a backdrop of very elevated and amplified core inflationary pressures. And they do concede that the Euro area economy may contract in the current quarter and next. So there is a hint at that recession, although not necessarily coming out with the same kinds of prognostications as the Bank of England. Also talking about food and underlying inflation, Germany, is the ECB, which I think it was a lot more interesting in terms of the statement than the Federal Reserve, is the ECB just sort of getting ahead of what the federal have to deal with in recognizing a stickier inflation for a longer period that goes beyond what the markets are currently allowing for. Yes, I think that's true. I think we all are going to see core inflation proven to be remarkably sticky. So yes, we can see headline inflationary pressures gradually easing if we are correct in assuming that those energy forward curves are correct.

"And of course, the Ukrainians aren't willing to accept that because their momentum is really going very much forward. They're having successes and they feel that if they press ahead that they will be more successful in pushing the Russians back and maybe even pushing them out entirely. I think so at the moment, neither side is really willing to sit down and talk seriously. Jenny, thank you very much indeed. That was doctor Jenny made us. Now, here's Emma sell with the day's other news headlines. Thanks, Georgina. Peru's new president Dina baluarte has announced she will send Congress a proposal to move forward the general elections by two years to April 2024. It follows widespread protests where two young people died and four were injured after the former president Pedro Castillo was ousted over his attempt to dissolve Congress. Ukraine's top security officials have ordered punitive measures against 7 senior clerics as part of a crackdown on a branch of the orthodox church with long-standing ties to Moscow. More than 30 priests are under investigation and the intelligence services have mounted a series of raids and monasteries and churches across the country to root out pro Russian clerics. Iran says it is executed its second prison and detained amid the nationwide protests challenging the country's theocracy. Was hanged in public early on Thursday in the city of mashhad after a court convicted him of the charge of enmity against God after finding he had stabbed death two members of the paramilitary by siege resistance force. And the EU economy commissioner published gentleness as the corruption and money laundering scandal at the European Parliament is seriously damaging the parliament's reputation. Belgian prosecutors have charged four people and seized more than 600,000 U.S. dollars. Those are the days headlines, back to you Georgina. Thank you, Emma. Barricades and roadblocks are still in place in majority's Serb parts of north Kosovo as tensions remain high between Belgrade and Pristina. The protests started after the deployment of police to majority Serb areas and the arrest of an ethnic Serb former police officer. The EU U.S. and UK are all calling for the removal of the barricades and for Belgrade and Pristina to deescalate. Well, let's get more from Monaco's man in the Balkans, that's guy de lone guy, thanks for joining us. What's the current situation? Well, coming, it's very difficult to get around north Kosovo is the situation. You've got roads blocked by buses and heavy goods vehicles. And that includes crossings between Serbia and Kosovo. So the only way into north Kosovo now you're coming from Serbia is to go through the south of Kosovo, which is the way that you go through to Pristina rather than the usual way that ethnic Serbs would enter Kosovo Overwatch Serbia called the administrative crossing and what Kosovo calls its national border. Schools have been canceled as well in the north of Kosovo. And we've got this war of words going on between Serbia and Kosovo who got prime minister kurti of Kosovo saying that criminal gangs are responsible for these barricades and Serbia's president Alexander vucic saying that merely ordinary people who are worried about their safety. And what was the trigger for all of this guy? So the final straw was as you mentioned the arrest of this ethnic Serb former police officer in north mitrovica, which is the largest majority Serb area of north Kosovo. Now the authorities and Christians say that he's a suspect in an incident at an election office where there was some violence last week. The bigger issue though, I think more than just this arrest is the fact that the authorities and Christians have deployed police from the south to these majority Serb areas in the north. This has happened in essence because there aren't any police officers in the north anymore because all of the ethnic Serb officers around 600 of them resigned en masse last month in protest at another dispute, this one involving vehicle license plates which listeners might remember. So pristine is saying we're just bringing law to the area and the ethnic Serb saying hang on a second by the agreements which have been made between Belgrade and Pristina, you're not meant to do this. We're meant to have our own police and you're not meant to be sending yours. Because deployment of police does always cause issues in north Kosovo. That's right. They're seen very much as an instrument of the majority Albanian government in Pristina. The north, as I mentioned, had its own ethnic police ethnic Serb police officers. Who although they are part or were part of the Kosovo police force, they were crucially members of the ethnic Serb community. Now, what people in north Kosovo fear. And this is genuine. There's certainly some hype around this, there's certainly politicians saying certain things. There's other people stirring things up. But genuinely, ethnic Serbs living in north Kosovo are worried that deployment of any sort of authority by the Pristina is going to be bad news for them because they remember what happened for example in 2004 where there was a lot of violence against ethnic Serb people in Kosovo and quite a number of them were killed more than a dozen were killed, hundreds more injured and thousands of families had to flee their homes. This is the kind of thing that people fear a repeat of when they're seeing the I suppose the arm of Pristina reaching into their neighborhood. What's cause of those point of view? Well, I mean, as far as that point of view, this is all down to Serbian troublemaking and fear mongering premise to Alban Curtis has been very busy saying that this is all really Serbia looking for an excuse to militarize the situation to send its troops into Kosovo after all Serbia still doesn't recognize Kosovo's unilateral Declaration of Independence from Serbia, which had made in 2008, and in mister Carter saying all of this is being stirred up by Belgrade. They're behind all of these problems they're behind the people on the barricades, and they're the ones who need to back down. And what Serbia is saying. Well, president vucic of Serbia is calling for Serbs to be calm and peaceful and not fall for provocations. There's also talk about whether pristine risk planning false flag operations to discredit ethnic Serbs in the north. But I think the really key thing from mister vucic's remarks are that he's calling on ethnic Serbs in Kosovo to respect NATO's K four peacekeepers and the EU's ulex police. Now this is really crucial because the presence of in particular of the NATO K four peacekeepers prevents anything serious from going on. There are 4000 multinational troops in Kosovo. Serbia does not want to interface with them, Kosovo doesn't want to fall foul of them. That's what's keeping anything bigger from happening at the moment. And they're going to meet today, aren't they? The National Security Council. Yeah, we've got a national security council meeting in Belgrade at 3 o'clock, local time. We've also been hearing quite a lot from various international officials on this, the EU foreign policy chief Joseph Burrell, again calling for DS escalation. Again, calling for these barricades to be taken down and saying how unhappy he was that ulex police came on the receiving end of a stun grenade over the weekend. That he says is completely unacceptable. We've also heard Germany's foreign minister and Elena bear bok as saying that she believes that the issues are coming from Belgrade and this occasion. So that won't that will give Serbia certainly pause for thought about what it does next. Absolutely. Thank you very much indeed. That was guide to learning.

"It's a big take from Bloomberg news and iHeartRadio. I'm west Kosovo. Today, farmers are protesting rules that order them to slash emissions. Not from their tractors, from their cows. The tensions we're seeing in the Netherlands are also playing out in other countries around the world to talk about that agnieszka de Souza joins me from London. She is a food reporter and also known affectionately as Bloomberg's food czar. Aggie, thanks for being here. Thank you for having me, Wes. Hey, when we talk about the biggest pollutants, it's often oil or coal, but as we just heard from Dietrich, the Netherlands is zeroing in on agriculture pollutants and in your own reporting you describe how other countries in Europe and around the world are also targeting agriculture. Why is this happening now? Farming and agriculture is still relatively little understood driver of climate change. There's more effort and more understanding that I think the public opinion is changing. When it comes to impact of farming on the environment, it's actually pretty big. Agriculture itself accounts for a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions, growing your food, but then also transporting the food all the way to retailers. That actually accounts for about a third of global greenhouse gas emissions. So it's actually substantial. And just looking at livestock, livestock is a major driver of emissions of the land usage of water consumption of so many different aspects and cleaning up agriculture can not happen without tackling the environmental footprint of livestock. And what exactly is it about livestock that is so polluting? Environmental footprint of life stuck is so multi

"So I was like, this is what I would want to hear. This is what I'd want to hear. So the next time we went out and we did a show at I think it was buca Iraq, where they had the big prison. And we did some I love the sketches we did. A lot of fun, but on the stand up portion of it, I made it about their world. And it changed the whole dynamic, and it was so much more entertaining in my opinion. So it was great advice from Jon Stewart that helped on that too. And he's done those too, right? Oh, he's done several of them. Yeah, he's all over those. And then I went with the chairman of the joint chiefs on his holiday. Tour. And I went with Brian urlacher and Doug fister from here from the nationals and Kelly pickler and Diana agron and of course this little known actress that was just coming on the scene, Meghan Markle. So it turned out to be the Duchess of Sussex, but whatever. Yeah, she was wonderful. So we had a great tour. We all bonded. As a matter of fact, tonight, one of the ladies Nicole Murray from the nationals who was on the tour with us that she's going to be here tomorrow and I thought it would be fun. Fantastic. You can also bring your experience into the entertainment that you do apart from the USO shows and I'm thinking particularly 12 strong, for example. And other things that you've done, how do you bring your personal experience into some of those roles, even if you haven't had the same experience as those characters. And perhaps how do you help the other actors who haven't been where you were to kind of get a better idea of what the story is all about? I think just talking it out, you know, talking it out. Thinking, what is thinking? Thinking is asking and answering questions. That's all thinking is. You know, so it seems to think about it and say, okay, well, ask a question and then try to answer it. And that's all it is. So when I create a character or what I get a character on the page, I have to try to understand who is this guy, what's his world, how does he fit into the world, what's his tone? What's his attitude? How does he view things? And then you start asking and answering questions in that character's mindset. And once you can do that, it was an old improvising training technique or when we used to do improvise shows or whatever. If you had a character that you had created, you needed to be able to answer questions as that character without even thinking, you know? So if I was playing a redneck, you could ask me any of that. I'd be like, yeah, I know exactly what I do then, son. You know, or whatever. And you think and act and react and so I was lucky because I had some experience in some of these very personal experiences like 12 strong, where I ended up playing lieutenant colonel max Bowers, who was my boss in Afghanistan. You know, the movie ends in 12 strong where the movie ends.

Reported closer to south capital streets should be right by the ramp to south capital street. If you're headed on the eastbound side of New York avenue near north capitol street, there was an accident scene blocking two right lanes should only have a single left lane getting by.

Middle East Deals in the Trump White House

"If you were still at The White House, if president Trump were still president, what Arab countries would you be working with now? What do you think we're working? I'm sorry. Or do you think you exhausted the list? Oh no, we were just getting warmed up. We got our first deal signed in September, first deal announced in August after that we were able to and that was very tightly held. We worked in an environment in Washington with a lot of leaks and a lot of people always looking to sabotage everything we worked on. And we're able to keep it a secret between three governments, our government, the emirati government, and the Israeli government. And then once it broke out that we announced it and we really broke the news with the presidential tweet and shocked the world, even The New York Times had to admit that it was a pretty groundbreaking achievement. We started speaking to Bahrain. We got them on board. Then we worked very hard to get to get Sudan and Kosovo to join as well. And then even during our lame duck period in Washington, we were able to get Morocco to make a peace agreement with Israel as well, which was a big breakthrough. And so at the time, we had very active discussions with Mauritania, which I think is a real possibility, which is important to get. And then the big prize is rolling the gulf of Saudi Arabia, Qatar. I think the GCC will come together. I think there's different dynamics to play to get one to go before the other. But the last deal that I made I write about this in the end of the book is really we were sunsetting in our time and government was we brokered a deal to end the GCC dispute, which was really a blockade between Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Bahrain that they had on Qatar. And so we couldn't really advance further with those countries until that was resolved. And so we also spoke to Indonesia, we spoke to Pakistan, both of them are waiting on Saudi Arabia, but it's gone from an if it will happen to a win it will happen. And I do think it's just fundamentally transformed the Middle East. And the momentum that it hadn't been left was extraordinary. So

"kosovo" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing

"To Kosovo where a dispute over vehicle license plates and identity cards has left the government accusing Serbia of trying to destabilize the country. Officials in Christiana had planned to require Serbs in northern Kosovo to replace their license plates with Kosovo plates starting today. But protests that turned violent over the weekend have led the plans to be postponed until at least the 1st of September. While joining me to discuss more of this is Monaco's Balkans correspondent guide Lonnie, guy good to have you on the show. Let's start with sort of take us through why this move from Kosovo was seen as so or is seen as so controversial by Serbian, particularly by the ethnic Serbian population in the country. Well, what we have at the moment with Kosovo is as a fudge in essence. So Serbia does not recognize Kosovo's unilateral Declaration of Independence, which it made in 2008. As far as Serbia is concerned, Kosovo remains part of Serbia. And that largely applies to the ethnic Serb population of Kosovo as well, who are a minority in Kosovo these days. But there's a large concentration of ethnic people in northern Kosovo in particular. And they have since 2008 and right now and an ongoing situation, they maintain strong ties with Belgrade and they have jobs in many cases which are related to the government and Belgrade and their license plates on their cars and their identity cards are issued by Belgrade rather than Pristina, which is Kosovo's capital. So if you go to, say, north mitrovica in north Kosovo, you'll see number plates there on cars which have KM on them and insignia implying that those are Serbian number plates. This has been getting on the nerves of the government in Pristina, in particular, the government of Alban kurti, the current prime minister. He's an Albanian nationalist. He makes no secret of his dislike for Serbia and he doesn't see why people who are in the borders of Kosovo shouldn't have Kosovo insignia on their cars, Kosovo ID, cards, and so on and so forth. This has been a real bone of contention between Belgrade and Pristina. We had a standoff last year about this, which lasted for a couple of weeks with blockades on the roads. And we've had a repeat of this over the weekend, which again threatened to turn a bit nasty, but then everybody's back down again. Okay, so everybody's back down for now, but where do you expect this to go then? I mean, as you say, Kosovo tried this last year. It clearly seems determined to try and push this through. Are we going to see a repeat of the protests and violence a month from now? Or do you expect some sort of deal to be reached? Well, what we've had right now is we've seen the problem being kicked down the road and only kicked down the road by 30 days. So what happened last year was the issue was kicked down the road for slightly longer because two sides agreed that the fudge they would reach. And fudges are terribly important when you have these sort of situations. They reached a fudge that the number plates the Serbian insignia on number plates would be paced over with stickers when those cars entered the administrative across the administrative line into Kosovo. That was going to be the fudge so you have to put a little sticker on your number plate. Vice versa, if you have a car with a Kosovo number plate when it goes into Serbia, they have to put a little sticker over the Kosovo insignia on there. This fudge worked, but it was only going to be a temporary fudge. Nobody's really worked out a permanent solution to this. So Alban Curtis has said, well, we're now going to enforce the deadline for the end of this particular compromise and this is happening and it's happening at midnight on the 1st of August. Nobody was really ready for that to happen. The U.S. embassy in particular took right and asked the government and Pristina to delay the implementation of these measures. We've also had remarks as well from a militarized who's the EU special envoy to the western Balkans saying he welcomes the decision by Kosovo to accept Joseph Burrell's the EU part of foreign policy chief proposal to postpone by one month so the EU is involved as well. Everybody is saying good grief that this really isn't what we need at this moment. It's not going to go away. Alvin Carti is playing to his constituency, which is in essence Albanian nationalists and people who really don't like Serbia at all, and that's the majority of the ethnic Albanian population in Kosovo. President Alexander vucic of Serbia is playing to his constituency, which is Serbian nationalists who believe the Kosovo Serbia. So the game will just continue. Well, it's a game, but at the same time, guy just from the way you even discuss it there. It's always amazing with these kinds of things how something seemingly small where both sides act on principle and refuse to back down can create far far greater tension than perhaps the issue itself even deserves, frankly, you know, we're talking about license plates at the end of the day, but what sense does that should that give us about just how tense things still are politically between Kosovo and Serbia. When generally things rub along, that's a thing. It's a bit like the situation we used to have with China and Taiwan. That everybody really knows about Taiwan's status that Taiwan has its own government to operate in all respects as an independent country. But most countries around the world follow a one China policy and nudge nudge wink wink and everybody was quite happy with that for quite a number of years. That's been shifting over the past three years. Well, likewise, with Kosovo and Serbia, if you ask president Alexander vucic, you know, what the situation is with Serbia and Kosovo and Kosovo's independence. He can be quite Frank sometimes and say, well, you know, we have to accept the realities with Kosovo. But he won't really say the south loud to his voters. And it's a problematic situation for Belgrade because it's a bit of a pain to have to keep on dealing with these issues with the province as they would see it. Whose population is 90% ethnical. As unilaterally declared independence does help Serbia, the great majority of the population now. That's all quite clear. But it's not politically feasible for Serbia of the government of Alexander vucic to recognize Kosovo's independence. It simply isn't. Meanwhile, prime minister Albin kurti of Kosovo keeps talking about mutual recognition, which is quite funny really because the idea that Serbia is waiting for Kosovo to recognize its existence is slightly ironic to put it mildly. The little fudge is the little compromises is how we get by on these things. And it's why the talks

Kurt Schlichter's Thoughts on the Potential DOJ Trump Investigation

"Kurt schlichter is with us. He is always fun. He's the author of we'll be back. The fall and rise of America, Kurt, welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Kurt, I want to start with you about this story that seems to be breaking the last 24 hours suggesting that the Department of Justice is criminally investigating Donald Trump for January 6th. What are your thoughts? It just reminds me of Jeffrey toobin making a Zoom call. It's a lot of undignified activity that is ultimately sad. Nothing's going to happen. I hope nothing's going to happen because this is kind of a recipe for disaster. The idea of trying a president who have the American population thinks was wrongly stripped of his victory in a Democrat stronghold 95% Democrats stronghold like Washington, D.C., it's one of those things that pulls about 5 blocks of the Jenga tower that is our country now. But why wouldn't they do it then Kurt? I don't know if I totally see it the same way. They'd love to unravel the country. They would love to try to create some form of civil unrest. That could only further justify their national police powers, I mean, why wouldn't they do that? Well, look, they very well might. I mean, these guys aren't geniuses. These are the same guys who brought us the Iraq War and the Afghan and of course the Washington Wall Street meltdown. So these are geniuses Charlie. But I'm put to mind of the place where I served in the army last, which is Kosovo, where you had one group of people deciding they weren't going to play by the norms and rules anymore. And for a little while, they did okay. And at the end of the day, I was walking through their utterly destroyed and ruined villages.

Colonel Douglas Macgregor Reacts to Sen. Graham's 2017 Russia Speech

"Colonel, I want to play cut 72. It reinforces something you said where the west was the one that was pushing towards the border of Russia. This is Lindsey Graham and John McCain and Lindsey Graham giving a rather enthusiastic speech saying, we're going to take the fight to Putin. We're going to go straight to the border. We're going to play offense. Play cut 72. Your fight is our fight. 2017 will be the year of offense. All of us will go back to Washington. And we will push the case against Russia. Enough of a Russian aggression. It is time for them to pay a heavier price. I believe you will win. I am convinced you will win and we will do everything we can to provide you with what you need to win. Colonel, your reaction. This was very dangerous, obviously. And they had a receptive audience unfortunately in Ukraine given its tragic history. And I think this actually has its roots in the 1990s in Bosnia Herzegovina and then subsequently in Kosovo and the attacks that we launched against the Serbs, which were aimed ultimately to eject Russia for all intents and purposes from the Balkans and Europe to marginalize Russia. Russia was weak. We were strong and we made no secret of our desire to marginalize them as a power. All of this is connected. And it's unnecessary. I couldn't understand why we even continued to maintain forces in Europe once the wall came down because there was no threat from Russia and frankly today there isn't one when the president of Finland was asked why he wanted to join NATO. He made it very clear that he didn't feel as written by Russia in the least. And I don't think that's the case with anybody right now in Europe to truly understand contemporary Russia.

"kosovo" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing

"Is the briefing on monocle 24. Now 23 years since the end of the war to which it is applying justice, the Kosovo specialist chambers in The Hague has returned its first verdict to Kosovo Liberation Army veterans have been sentenced to four and a half years each after being convicted of intimidating potential witnesses to further such trials. I'm joined with more on this by Monica's Balkans correspondent guide alani, a guy, first of all, what is the verdict and who has been verdict? Well, the people verdict had Andrew loved that, and nassim had a deny and his sati, and they weren't just any old veterans over the leaders of the Kosovo Liberation Army veterans association. And what they've been convicted of is, as you've said, leaking information about what was going on at the court. And this is crucial because it isn't just a case of these trials are going ahead. These people are being charged, but they were naming witnesses. They were identifying whom might have been called to testify against senior former leaders of the Kosovo Liberation Army. They were calling them all sorts of names, including traitors, and they were making it very clear where these people could be found. As the judge said, clearly held in contempt, not just the court, but anybody who wanted to cooperate with this, and they were absolutely brazen in this contempt staging a series of press conferences in which they divulged this confidential information leaks from the court and actually encouraged people to come forward with more so they could leak that as well. I mean, it was all weird at any number of levels, but it's important to clear up that one of the weirdnesses of it is that this is not some international court dispensing remote justice. This is actually a kosovar court operating under kosovar law, isn't it? And it's set up by a kosovar active parliament. And this is the thing, and it illustrates why the court was set up in the way that it's been set up. They were always concerned about these issues of judicial interference and witness intimidation, so they set up the Kosovo specialist chambers in The Hague with international officials, so none of the judicial officials are from Kosovo at all. It's largely funded by the United States and the European Union, but it is a court of Kosovo, even though it's in The Hague. And it had at the time it was set up 5 years ago. It had the support of the president of Kosovo and the National Assembly of Kosovo. That doesn't mean it hasn't been the subject of sniping by politics, politicians ever since it certainly has. But the extraordinary thing had a DNI the two men had been convicted today is they thought that they could get away with these public press conferences, divulging all this confidential information and that nothing would happen and rather gloriously the Kosovo specialist chambers who have police on the ground in Kosovo said, well, no, that's not how it goes down, promptly sweeped, picked them up, took them to The Hague and the four and a half year sentences the result. But that brazenness to which you allude does suggest a certain belief on their part that they had an amount of public support. How would you quantify that now? Because these are not the last trials at the Kosovo specialist chambers will consider indeed there's some very high profile ones coming up, including that of senior KLA commander and indeed former Kosovo president hashim faci. How do people in Kosovo see this now? Because at one level, the KLA leadership are still regarded as the leaders of a heroic liberation struggle and not entirely without reason. You've got it in a nutshell there, Andrew. People in Kosovo, 90% of whom are ethnic Albania. Now this ethnic Albanian majority does indeed view Kosovo Liberation Army as an instrument of righteous struggle that in the late 1990s, they were the defenders of the Kosovo Albanian people who were suffering under government of Yugoslavia, which was run at that time by slobodan milosevic, who was utterly notorious. And highly prejudiced against Kosovo Albanians to the point where the lives and livelihoods were in peril. It was only because of the fight of the Kosovo Liberation Army and the later intervention by NATO, many Kosovo Albanians believe that they are living in an independent country today, of course that's a country which unilaterally declared its independence, and that's a complicated matter as well. But the view is, and I think this is I think it's safe to say this is widely held in Kosovo today, is that the senior leaders of the Kosovo liberation armies were heroes of a liberation struggle which was a righteous struggle and they should not be standing charges standing trial for war crimes or crimes against humanity. And how they feel about them as politicians and governors of Kosovo since its unilateral Declaration of Independence is another matter, but when it comes to the liberation struggle, they're definitely coming down on the side of these men being heroes. Guide alonna, thank you very much as always for joining us. You're listening to the briefing on monocle 24. You're back with the briefing on monocle 24. Now, since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Japan has taken fewer chances than most countries where the outside world is concerned, it raised the early and is only just now beginning to winch them back down again. Having begun to admit business people and students, Japan has now announced that what it describes as test tourism will begin this month. For more on what this will actually mean, I spoke a short while ago to Monaco's Tokyo bureau chief Fiona Wilson. I began by asking what the new rules are. I don't think people should get too excited just yet. It's very limited. It's tour groups from the U.S., Australia, Thailand, Singapore. They have to be triple vaccinated, small groups, fixed itineraries, and it's really being announced as a test, a trial run. It's a very cautious opening. But it is something anyway. This is, as you say, an incredibly tentative way to go about it. Does that suggest that there is a reverse gear back into isolation here if this doesn't work well? Yeah, I think so. I think really it's probably in step with the way people it's the way the whole pandemic has gone for Japan. People have been quite happy to be masked to be cautious. They were quite happy the borders were closed. And I think opening has to be a slow process. To keep the population on board. And at the moment, it's been a gradual prizing open. They opened up. 1st of March, they opened up to some business people, foreign students who've been waiting for visas for two years. I mean, we haven't had tourists in Japan for two years. So it's been a long process. And I think people were waiting to see golden week, this big Japanese holiday did infection numbers go up after that. They did slightly. That's just happened golden week. And it's just a slight rise, but nothing major. So I think they feel confident now in going ahead with this trial, which should have happened in December. I have to say, but omicron took over in December and the whole thing was shut down. So cautious, but positive first steps, I think. Is it possible to get a sense of how public opinion feels about this, whether people are excited about welcoming the world back or perhaps a bit apprehensive or perhaps some people have rather enjoyed the peace and quiet. I think all of the above actually, I think it's a bit of a particularly in some places like Kyoto, I think it's been a shock to the economy in Kyoto, but quite nice for residents very, very busy there with tourists before then. So yeah, I think it's a bit of everything. And when you see polls, NHK did a poll. And a third of people said they were quite happy to keep the borders closed. Continue to keep them closed. So it's not exactly that. I mean, there will be a warm welcome once people see that it goes okay, but I think prime minister kiss you to he knows the population and he knows they.

maker rivian automotive lowered today by 10.3% I'm Charlie pellet that is a Bloomberg business flash Thank you so much for that update Charlie pellet Really appreciate it Well a big part of the conversation when it comes to financial literacy has to do with building credit But as lily Liu found that when you pay rent on time you're not actually rewarded when it comes to building credit You're not rewarded for giving your landlord thousands of dollars each month if you're doing it on time hence the app pinata Lily Liu is chief executive officer of pinata Lily joins us on the phone from Los Angeles Lily how are you I'm there doing well Thanks for having me Well thanks so much for joining us Help us understand what exactly pinata does and how it helps reward people for paying their rent on time Absolutely Can you only rent rewards program that rewards all renters across the country when they pay their rent in full and on time Now keep in mind renters They do not have to change how they're paying for rent They pay exactly how they're currently paying for rent All we need to know is that you got your rent in full and on time and you get a series of rewards on our program You have the ability to also have that payment reported to the credit bureaus to get that credit score boost And so does pinata require buy in of sorts from the landlords in this scenario Great question We don't We're actually open to anywhere inter across the country regardless of who you are from And so you can download piata You just search for pinata rents in the App Store You sign up for your free account and there are a couple of screens that ask you for some information And after that every month you're going to get your piano cash You can spend that on a bunch of different emerging and big game brands like casco Amazon target Walmart on things like everyday essentials to groceries that's home good health and fitness and more Lily how does the business work How are you able to offer those rewards just by people paying their rent on time Where do the margins come in Where does your money come in So we have a multi sided business model We work with brands that are on the platform Now keep in mind some of our brands we pay for out of pocket as a benefit to our renters And To participate in the program and see Hey lily we're going to hold off Lily we're having a little trouble with your connection The team in the control room is going to try to get you back and get that connection set in the meantime just stand by because we're going to try to get the CEO of pinata back on the phone with us She's joining us from Los Angeles Kati it's a really interesting question and the idea of how lily is able to do this Pinata is able to do this without getting the buy in from landlords because when I was reading about this I actually thought okay well it seems to be like a B2B thing where you have to get a major corporation perhaps like a large landlord to participate in the program in order for it to work but it sounds like you can actually have a mom and pop landlord If that's your landlord you can actually get rewarded that way too Yeah I was wondering that as well and hopefully we get lily back because I'm also curious to hear how the pandemic played a role in this as well because as we know rents went crazy All right well let's bring back lily Liu the CEO of pinata Lily come back in here and talk a little bit about how you're able to make this work business wise Tell us the model Absolutely So we work directly with brands And again oftentimes many of our brands we pay for at the pocket and then many of them pay to participate on the program and on the platform as well These are brands that want to give us renters things for free and want to give them rewards Hopefully building up great rapport with the renters and they find new customers that love their products and their brand as well And so that's kind of our business model We also work directly with property management companies And so in that case what they're doing is they are giving access to their renters to a premier rewards program so their ventures get even more panic cash every month to use on those great rewards They also have the ability to have access to additional gift cards and other great perks in the program But again keep in mind regardless of whether or not your landlord or property management company is partnering with pinata you can sign up for free and use the program So those mom and pop glamours they can all have their renters participate And they don't have to have a direct relationship with Tiana And lily talk to us about where you see the pandemic fitting in with this because like I was just saying to Tim you've seen the rental market really go crazy initially you saw rents fall in cities during the real dark early days now It just feels like rents are going higher everywhere How do you see that impacting sort of demand for pinata Absolutely 2021 was the most unpredictable year for real estate Who knows where 2022 will land although we're predicting that renters ship will continue to increase next year at outpace home ownership obviously with the rise of murder rates projected to hit 4% by end of next year that even while rental rates are increasing a lot of consumers will have no other option So whether or not you're renting as a predicament or you're renting as a lifestyle choice which many of our renters are increasing to rent because of the lifestyle choice that gives them flexibility.

country's very violent breakup in the 1990s because the U.S. and NATO bombed its foe its enemy Serbia The U.S. continues to support Kosovo's economy and military to this day There's this saying here God in heaven and American earth and it means that Kosovo has to save years I heard this from a prominent imam here named labinot malice So he's saying that the U.S. gave us our freedom It made us independent It ensured that we would have peace and stability We are safe he says because of the U.S. So given all of that it's no surprise that Kosovo agreed right away to take in Afghans evacuated by the Americans Yeah that's right Kosovo raised its hand right away The president here of Josiah osmani told me that kosovars can relate to the Afghans She says that people here know what it's like to be displaced They can feel it Here she is For people who go through war for people who go through a tariff These are things beyond human imagination What is in common is the human suffering And when you understand that you can always find a way to make things happen and to help people So the goodwill is there but the government struggled to find a place to house the Afghans Kosovo is one of the poorest parts of Europe So the government decided that the Americans should house the Afghans on camp bonds deal for like a year But what do we know about this camp It's a military camp right Yep that's right So campon steals about an hour's drive from Christiana It's the biggest U.S. Military base in the Balkans It can hold about 7000 troops In kit bonds still also supports Kosovo's economy because many kosovars actually work at the base Right now bonds deal is also a temporary home to hundreds of Afghans We're not exactly sure how many the Afghans are not allowed off the base and very few people can go in So hardly anyone in Kosovo has seen the Afghans One of the people who's actually seeing them and met them and spent time with them is the imam we heard from earlier malice He leads priors there every Friday for the Afghans And another's president osmani we also heard from and she recently visited the camp But we have tried to visit ourselves for weeks now but the U.S. has not let us in Why not What reasons are you being given So officially we've been told that there are health and safety issues logistical issues But two U.S. officials who are not authorized to speak to the media but who are involved with this group of Afghans told us that a small number may be a few dozen again the number is not clear We're redirected to Kosovo because they triggered security issues during vetting at the ramstein U.S. Military base in Germany And then there's this question about what to do with this group like where should they go if they don't pass vetting Because no one wants this space in the middle of Europe to turn into anything anything resembling Guantanamo That's Joanna kaki kisses reporting from Christiana Kosovo Thanks to Anna You're welcome Sarah 28 million kids

"The united states shame right over its precipitous sprint out of afghanistan shadow this country's conscience for generation every horror story and they will keep coming is partly the result of our decision to bug out the death and destruction that occur in previously secure parts of that country will be on the bipartisan decision to exit the fiasco of president biden ordered quick march out of the country with its arbitrary deadline and false proclamations of the heroic airline effort. Airlift effort will garner the most shame but barack obama and donald trump all wanted the same thing they wanted out to all three presidents lacked. What abraham lincoln possessed and george w bush often display the strenght to shoulder. The suffering of war brought home in dead and wounded. Young soldiers sailors airmen and marines the country. Tired of it too. We do not have the ability to fight a long war. Even with minimal casualties be because for us. There is no such thing as a minimal casualty. We can take station troops on board. We peacekeeping missions in kosovo but we cannot endlessly endure the loss of american life to enemy combatants so we left but our greatest centers to have left without first overseeing an exodus of those who were desperate to run from baruch theocracy. We did a portion of the saving at the last minute and those tens of thousands who did escape will be forever grateful for the eleven marines. One navy cormon and one army soldier who gave their lives at those refugees might live but for twenty years. We pretend it all of us at some sort of middle ground might emerge between the darkest midnight and the dawn of democracy. Turns out there wasn't such a middle ground and yet we owed an exit to those who relied on falso.

His team was ultimately swept in the second round by the Sun's at 3 32 mark in the third quarter following a foul in Phoenix guard Cameron Pain that certainly didn't appear to warrant an ejection Joker was tossed as you can imagine, Denver head coach Michel One didn't agree with the rest, decision or explanation.

It's going to make it even harder to track to stave off elimination. Uh, this losses things no one likes to lose. But when you find some time to reflect on the season, remember all the great things that we did this year, Yogis becomes just the fifth mbpd get swept in a playoff series and likely the first or certainly first in a long time to get ejected from An elimination game.

Saudi Arabia says it seeks a way to end dispute with Qatar

"I think that we should talk about the gulf because the gulf cooperation council due to meet in riyadh on tuesday to discuss a potential end to the blockade of qatar. That has been going on since twenty seventeen And obviously this is provoked Quite a bit of coverage about whether we will finally see a deal and see an end to this blockade So if for example you look and you have to look pretty hard but you will find coverage in the saudi daily arab news Which started with statements from the kuwaiti ambassador to saudi arabia. Says there is a for tunnel and positive atmosphere ahead of the talks. And how credible is the report of fraternal positive atmosphere Extremely good question. A lot of the coverage that we see so for example if you look At some of the coverage online at fronts. Twenty four Aljazeera tells aljazeera which is Very much the focus of some of the irritation from Blockading countries for that coverage They help they also covered this story. it took me a while to find that story to interestingly enough But they both they give different reasons for how close or how far this this group of countries might be to a resolution so if you look at france twenty. Four they mentioned A coach an analyst is saying that bahrain hasn't signed but the other blockading states have They quote The abu dhabi minister for foreign affairs on walker gash a big figure saying that political and social atmospheres in the gulf are looking to end the koto crisis. If you consider that to be a meaningful statement But if you look at what. Al jazeera is doing They kind of casually mentioned that you know any deal. won't be a comprehensive agreement it will be a set of principles and they say the pressure is on saudi from from the us To come to an agreement But the the uae has. It's own agenda so quite different versions of the same situation. What will break this. Because there's no way surely that kosovo will say we supported terrorism. Yes we're too close to run. That's very true. I mean previously. There was a list of i believe it was about twelve points that The blockading states for trying to get caught up to agree to that. Included things like shutting down Their state broadcaster aljazeera And qatar essentially said well. We're we're going to wait it out and did nothing as far as we can tell At least from the outside And so i think that what the customers have shown is that they can outlast this. So i mean i think it will really start with the idea that any agreement has to be a negotiated on more reasonable lines Looks like it will be about things like use of saudi airspace for example And so things you know if they start negotiating along things that where you might be able to reach agreement then an agreement perhaps could be on the horizon.
