"Reliably voted Republican. But the suburbs have changed. And last November, Donald Trump lost them in a big way.

But when I moved into Montgomery County 21 years ago, it was already starting to change in 2016.

Forces to be reckoned with: Afghan peace talks
"Today. Russia will host a conference on afghanistan aimed at supporting the peace process. The talks will bring together the afghan government and representatives of the taliban as well as several international players including america. The meeting comes at a crucial time for afghanistan. Last february following negotiations with the taliban the trump administration agreed to withdraw all american troops by may first of this year on tuesday president. Joe biden told george stephanopoulos of abc news. That america may miss that deadline. I'm in the process of making that decision. Now as to when they'll leave the fact is that very solidly negotiated deal that The president the former president worked out. And so we're in consultation with our allies as well as the government and That decision's gonna be. It's process now likely to take longer. I think a lot longer but may i. It's tough could happen but it is tough because as it stands there are two and a half thousand american troops and a thousand more special operations forces in afghanistan. that's down from a peak of more than one hundred thousand as with its predecessors. Mr biden's administration will be keen to end america's longest war who premature departure could spell disaster. The peace conference being held today in moscow is an attempt to bring together the taliban insurgents and the afghan government to try and come up with some kind of arrangement for how afghanistan could be run in future and therefore stop the war between those two sides. Edward mcbride is our asia editor. This is just one of several peace conferences underway or planned. There's going to be another peace conference in turkey. In april and for months now there have been peace talks underway between the afghan government and the taliban in qatar. And they haven't been making much headway. Which is why. Russia and the. Us have tried these new initiatives and one big question looming over all this is whether or not to the biden administration will fulfil the promise to pull out troops by may first. What does it look like for for that commitment. That deadline was agreed in separate peace talks between america and the taliban concluded over a year ago under the administration of donald trump and it always looked quite optimistic and i think the difficulty for the biden administration is to decide whether or not to stick to that deadline on the one hand if they take all the troops out. The taliban may decide to hell with the peace talks. We'll just try and overrun the afghan government by conquest. And that would obviously look very embarrassing and would call into question all the work that the us has done over the past twenty years to try and institute a different kind of government within afghanistan on the other hand. If they say they're going to stay and ignore the deadline of may i. Then they face the prospect of renewed taliban offensive so then there's the prospect that america will find itself embroiled justice heavily as it has been for twenty years in the afghan civil war more american casualties and more expense and difficulty without any clear prospect of how the war might end but coming to a decision on those questions is exactly what these peace talks are about right absolutely so in theory. The peace talks provide a great way out for everyone. The hitch is that the peace talks that have been underway encounter for many months. Now have not yielded any kind of a breakthrough and unfortunately there's not much reason to expect the talks today in russia or indeed the talks in turkey next month to yield any more of a breakthrough and so why the impasse for what that. They're not getting the bottom line really. Is that both. The taliban and the afghan government think of themselves as the rightful rulers of afghanistan. And they're not really working to their own schedules. Right hold process has been determined by the fact that the trump administration originally but by administration now are both keen to end america's longest war neither within telenor within the afghan government has the sort of internal process of deciding how much they're willing to give up really preceded far enough to meet that deadline of the first of may the way out of the impasse that america has been pushing in recent days is sort of power sharing agreement whereby both the taliban and the afghan government come together to form a government of national unity. Where they both control some ministries. Perhaps they both have some kind of control over the security forces and whilst in that power sharing government they reach some kind of final agreement about a new constitution or a new sort of power structure. The problem is neither side has really agreed to to both are worried about being justice. Sort of adjunct to the real power within a power sharing agreement neither side is very comfortable sharing power with the other because they've been fighting for so long and what about that. Fighting now has the taliban been honoring its side of the agreements. The have been made while the peace negotiations are going on right so there. Lots of people who think that the taliban just isn't sincere about this whole process that it's got an advantage on the battlefield that the area under the government's control keeps shrinking. The taliban is just waiting for america to go before it pushes it should vantage and certainly even though the taliban agreed not to attack american troops it never agreed not to attack the government troops and it continued its campaign and even in a certain sense increased it insofar as there have been a series of tax representatives of civil society the kind of urban elite in kabul assassinations bombings. The taliban sometimes denies being a part of but the one suspects. It's behind the taliban. I think see this violence as their strongest card. The government has to negotiate. Because it's very much under the cosh from the town of forces on the ground but that bloodshed also makes it really difficult for america just to up sticks and go right now because it really does look like america's abandoning the afghan government to its fate. And so do you think that points to the biden administration. Being rather forced to delay any troop withdrawals. I think what america's looking for is some kind of middle way where the talks seem to be making enough progress or there's some kind of idea of where we're headed that they can agree with the taliban a bit of an extension and not actually have to stick to that deadline of the first of may but also not have to sort of down on backing the afghan government with a renewed troop presence. I think the instincts of the biden administration really similar to the instincts of the trump administration. They don't really think that it's going to be possible to build a strong modern nation state in afghanistan. They don't want to be embroiled in a war. That just drags on forever. So i think the by administration is looking for any way can to get the troops out of afghanistan and without the afghan government collapsing or some kind of horror unfolding in terms of an escalation of the civil war. The thing we don't know is whether the taliban is willing to sort of provide the biden administration that option and give substance to all these different peace talks or whether it thinks after twenty years it has finally beaten america and it does indeed intends to take over the country as soon as the american troops are gone. We still don't quite know the answer to that question. And that's what all of this hinges on

"moscow" Discussed on The Jordan Harbinger Show
"Everywhere around us but they weren't really after us. They were after the Russians that were working with us. They were after the people in their country that were committing treason. Were betraying their country. Working Press and if they could get to those people they would execute them and they did that so much pressure and I definitely want to discuss that later in the show because there are some very specific examples of people that just sound like they either had a tolerance for stress. That was well beyond just not even in the solar system is the level of trust that the rest of have or they were wired completely differently and I wonder what you think about that. But this is nineteen seventy-six Moscow. And what through eighty five? What time period are we talking about here runs up to about eighty nine and I think in the book I think the first case we talk about was really our first case there? That was in sixty three. That was at the beginning when we were unable to basically manage an espionage case in in Moscow that one only lasted eighteen months and they found him and they arrested him and they execute him was only been coffee. That's so terrifying looking back. Eighty nine not that long ago it is but it isn't and I was born in one thousand nine hundred. I'm not even forty right now so to have a country that's like this in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine so to tell. -Tarian is crazy. I've been to North Korea a few times and I would imagine it's kind of similar. North Korea seems I can't imagine anything more controlled than North Korea. But maybe it's possible. I'm not sure North Korea's almost in a category of its own. I haven't been to North Korea so I can't really comment but I've read a number of books about it about how it operates about how they control their citizenry and I mean. We've all seen little peek set. What happens if step out of line including if you're an American student over there who pulls a poster off wall you know incomes home basically brain dead so they yeah they know how to keep the lid on and how to keep their people marching in line. What's interesting about this? I think a lot of people will be like. Oh America's not free either. I always get those emails after I do shows like this but I think what people don't understand is the reason that they were able to keep such a tight grouping of you at a tight embrace on you is because they don't have any back then they had no semblance of freedom. They could lockdown anything. They wanted people had no right so they could just absolutely flood the city with state resources and monitor everything and everyone and that type of thing is just not possible in a free society. Would you agree with that people who speak that way? Probably haven't travelled very widely. You almost need to go take a look at the other possibilities places that you could have been but you weren't places that you could be living today but you're not. You're living in the United States to really appreciate the freedoms that we have. You know I I never WanNa talk about politics. When I'm talking about this book but it ebbs and it flows there are people who would like to tighten up security. There are people who are much more relaxed about security but even when security is tight back here doesn't even begin to approach. What some of these foreign countries but their citizens through I watch documentaries all the time and I saw recently in Belarus and there's a group of students that do these plays that are kind of like. Hey we should have more freedom and look. They're locking down or internet and they get busted beat up by cops and thrown in jail and they go missing. It's really crazy to have a country like that in Eastern Europe in two thousand twenty. You know there was a rock band in In Russia will be. They called Pussy Riot. Yes she was on the show. Actually really yeah sorry. I didn't hear that I'd like to hear one of them. Talk about it but it was a great opportunity for the government to make a statement to remind their citizens that this is not allowed. This is what will happen faith through her in prison for years and they had her making uniforms and they were beating up and salting are she's toughest nails. You'd have to be to be in that position. She's just one of the toughest people that I know. She's a true. Her international notoriety is an artist is for a good reason. What's strange is you know you think. Oh who's GONNA commit treason against their own country? They must hate Russia. They must hate the United States. She actually loves Russia in hates Vladimir Putin so she's very specific about that. I said why do you still live in Russia? And she said I would die without it I would suffocate without it. I'm Russian Vladimir Putin and his cronies we have to get rid of so she is just not afraid of anyone obviously a lot of Russians have that same visceral attachment to their country. They love their motherland. It's hard to separate them from it. We've exfiltrated some people we've had defectors come out from Russia. They come to this country they see all these choices. They have in a drugstore. You have to choose from like forty kinds of toothpaste. They have trouble coping with that and a lot of them. Get very very morose and depressed and discovered that they would like to go back. That's what Russia now of course capitalist more or less I mean yes. There's a lot of cronies stuff going on there. And that's a whole that's a whole different show. We talked about some of that with bill browder before foot having that kind of environment in communism like Old School. Stalinism or Leninism. I guess it would be called. Well I don't know I'm not up on that. It's either North Korea's certainly Stalinist having that kind of society with no choice and no free commerce to miss that is kind of like an alien notion to those of us who grew up in the United States or the Western world at all. That's right you know the mark that Stalin left on that society carries on today. If you sit down with a Russian couple and you say that your family history in your country. What part of Russia were they from? How did that go? You almost always hear the stories about the purges you'll hear stories about arrests and murders where their widows were orphans. There were just these tragedies on a scale that we can't imagine stolen was just he was just so brutal isn't even a big enough word for what he did and he left a mark that continues today. There are people in Russia who can't proceed further in their careers because say their grandfather worked with the Bolsheviks or the white Russians there's a mark there's mark in their personnel files somewhere that says they can't be trusted they can't be promoted beyond a certain level and that's one of the things that drives that citizenry into our arms. They hate that part of Russia. They that piece of Russia and that is a catalyst for them to work with us. I have a friend who I grew up with and went to college with him and lived with his father. Has I think too. And he worked for Dupont and had a pretty darn good career guy with two chemistry. Phd's I said. Why did you leave Russia? And they said well. I wasn't allowed to have a job because I'm Jewish and they said we have to. Phd's what a waste of human capital and needs to know why they're doing how they're doing compared to countries that don't deal with that kind of thing exactly. Yeah so going back to the Moscow rules. I think it was at a CIA official that quoted in the book. That said it would be easier to run agent on Mars that Dick Helms one of one of our legendary chief CIA. That was his comment. And it was right on the mark. There's something like fifty thousand KGB agents in Moscow to counter the CIA and other foreign intelligence agencies just thinking about that. I read that I wrote that down and going over my notes this morning. I thought I think the town I grew up in which was not that small had forty thousand people in it now. It was next to other towns so it seemed larger for that reason but fifty thousand people. There's you'd need multiple high schools. That's the size of the University of Michigan campus including all staff and faculty all the students from all the different university campuses in the area. That's still more people you know that number came from Oleg Kalugin and only was KGB officer. He didn't defect quality lives in the United States now. He transplanted himself he became he became disenchanted with KGB and he went into politics in Russia he was in the parliament for awhile and then he decided he'd start a new life over here they had already taught him as a spy in the KGB. Perfect English I mean only came and just fit right in these board member of the international spy museum. Now he's a Russian representative there He was the one that gave me the number. I hadn't seen that number until I interviewed him. I interviewed Jack. Barsky also on this show. Who Have you heard of him at all? Yes yeah that kind of story to know that that's happening is absolutely crazy. Because when I look at the people who let's say defect which is the wrong word but the people that go and they move over to Russia. It's like Steven Seagal where we're just kind of like all right. See you later. Nobody's going to miss you. You know. It's not some high level parliamentarian who decides to go start living in Washington DC or Manhattan. Because they're sick of it. It's somebody who's kind of generally not stupor beloved type of person and has maybe a rough or strange passed in actually prefers authoritarians over normal societies. And that's I think speaks a lot. I'M NOT ANTI RUSSIA BY ANY MEANS. I think the police fascinating and I think the people are brilliant. Two Cultures Amazing foods amazing. I pretty much like everything about that. Other than some of these major sort of little tags on the reputation of the way that they treat people. It's hard to say that as an American given our track record but it it is different and I wonder what you think about that. Because it's definitely there were kind of not really in the same league when it comes to health society functions. In my opinion you know in the thirties and the forties. There were a lot of Americans who were interested in that experiment going on in Russia. They kind of bought into that idea of this capitalist state where you worked as hard as you needed to and and you will get everything that you needed to carry on. It was interesting. A lot of people went that way for ideological reasons. You meant communist right. Yeah I'm sorry. Yeah and then that tapered off entirely and the ideological flow shifted and the people that they would come to us were looking for our society our freedoms our openness our our ability to live a life unencumbered by all of the restrictions that you find Moscow now the embassy in the Soviet Union. They discovered later head microphones in all the rooms to price. The price ceilings but even in the foundation during construction. I always wondered about this. I thought how come if we're building a embassy that's obviously going to be used for intelligence and diplomacy in a country that might be hostile to the United States. How on Earth can we build that? Where there's no spy gear placed into the actual fabric of the building? And that obviously happened. You know what I'm talking to a public audience like it was yesterday and we get to this point if it comes up first thing I say. How many is there anybody? Here who's worked for State Department? Usually there is not because then I talk about State Department in not best terms the seat we were given originally an old building. It was an apartment building and the United States embassy was in that building for many many years. It was a fire hazard. It was the electricity. Didn't work everything was wrong with it and it was sprinkled with bugs of course then we decided that we needed a new embassy and the Russians decided that they needed a new embassy in DC. It's always reciprocal. Whatever we do at one an embassy we can do to the other. They move forward together so they started building their embassy in. Dc WE started building our new embassy in Russia but State Department brokered the whole deal and stay department for all the wonderful things that they do. Security is not nearly as high on their list is it is at CIA show for starters they gave the Russians the highest piece of ground in Washington. Dc and that's where they built their new embassy which is allowed them to intercept all kinds of microwave. Signals I mean from that kind of point of view. It's an ideal location. They gave us the lowest point in Moscow. It's almost down in a little bit of swamp so we started out on the wrong foot. State Department decided that there was no reason that the pieces of our building couldn't be pre assembled by Russian citizens the pre cast concrete. Rebar the big pieces that go into making. A high-rise building was all put together in Moscow whereas the Soviets in Washington DC insisted on bringing all their workers and no American touched anything not a brick when they built the Soviet.

Yeah have everything Packed it's kind of heavy. That's because it's not. It's not overweight my luggage but kind of heavy because I'm bringing a few things for our participants that way something but yeah we'll see tomorrow is a is my flight to Moscow where we'll do before the Siberia Lake Baikal. We do a bit of an extension there a few days to see Moscow and visit some sites there which after several times and I even have the same guides that we used to have a few times ago Julia. She's a photographer. And she's taken us around and going to show us a few things and then we'll also explore some of the markets in Moscow. That's one thing I really love doing is to go to markets at the destinations because they are so not pretentious. Usually no postcards of them just regular people doing regular stuff. That's the kind of market. I'm looking for food market with just normal people so many great street opportunities there so that's one of the things that will do during the extension and then after that we'll take off from Moscow to Irkutsk in Siberia and. Yeah that's it for now. All right a bit of a change in pace. What you're hearing is the What's the name of the station? Scam come some o scared so this is Julia. She's our guide here in Moscow. And we're just doing a tour of the Moscow subway which is photographic lead just amazing. 'cause I think stalin-built this and it's sorry for the noise in the background Let's wait for the train to leave those Stalin build this because he just loved expensive architecture right not only for this reason in fact he needed the Mitterrand for transportation and for military purposes but he decorated it highly because he liked beautiful perfect she is so full of ornaments and mosaics and duty for light fixtures. And here's an extra. I think I'll stop now. I'll be back in a minute with something else. It's less noisy. I'm back motel. We finished our detour today in Moscow. Which is part of the two day extension of That we tacked onto the front of our Lake Baikal tour so I had Julia as our guide who is who has been our guide for a few other times. We've been here she's great. She knows everything. She knows what photographers like so. She's she took us to the right places of course including the the most important landmarks. Today's kind of the. Yeah let me call it the tourists today. But if you're here in Moscow you have to see the Red Square you have to see to Kremlin which by the way is the heart of Moscow it used to be only Moscow. The Kremlin if you don't have a if you don't know what to imagine the Kremlin is like a portrait. It's a it's a city inside. The city has a wall around. It used to be Moscow and then it started growing the outside. There are so many Kremlin. Here you'd be surprised so yeah we went in there. Of course the cathedrals in there there are several cathedrals in there and we just as you heard finished off the day with visiting some of the famous metro stations here. The Moscow metro is quite something. I mean it runs like clockwork and the trains Brady every two minutes. There's a train maybe less than two minutes. It's really Bang Bang Bang Bang. It's very super-efficient and We got around really quickly so if you come to Moscow. The Metro is the way to go. It gets almost everywhere and quick that are not expensive and tomorrow. We're going to take the metro and go to two markets. One is a food market and the other is It's hard to explain. It's souvenir market. But then it's right. Next to another Kremlin that is now kind of used as a place where people held weddings and photography. Point of view. Just wonderful and Then there's a flea market and so we'll be doing some street photography on the markets and have our lunch there and then after that back to the attell grab stuff head to the airport because tomorrow night we'll fly to Irkutsk in Siberia and we're at the next stop little night session ahead. I'm in the hotel lobby waiting for our driver. Because the he's not over yet we are going to Take the tripods out and find a few places. There was a couple of spots that have already been to that. I know that are really good for some long exposures with Some bigger buildings reflecting in the water of the Moskva River Then there's the crisis Sabre Cathedral which is kind of weird place but it looks really nice and at night It's really interesting with all the lights and everything around it so there will be some some good opportunities and yeah we'll just be out for like a couple of hours maybe To go to some of those spots and then yeah then the day is really over. The city of she said this station is example. Would just look so. It's the next day and We have finished our our main markets tour of the two markets again. It was super easy to get around with the Metro and Yes or recording. Why are there because we're just way too busy but It was fun to the second markets by the waste. Called is my loss key. Market is yeah. It was exactly as I wanted to be Last time I was there it was a bit smaller and this time there was so many sellers flea market everything you could imagine of course souvenirs but also just just the the the thing that I kind of expect from a flea market which is people bringing stuff from their homes and selling it there so you saw A really good insight into Russian life into what Russians consider. They don't need anymore. Want to sell everything you could imagine so that was really fun and we are pretty much on a way to the airport and we will take off later tonight to Siberia and then. I guess that's where I end this episode and then the next one will be from Siberia..

You know look this the mcconnell supporters who were being gross about the a._f._c. z. cutouts supposedly were high school students so like you know is mcconnell entirely responsible for them no of course not on the other hand shaming him over over them a little bit like that seems fair game.

I mean i think that sure i don't know i guess i'm just increasingly uncomfortable with like death and violent images being tied directly to actual people and i am thinking of gabby giffords as i say that i you know you know like look. It'll probably be fine. We are awash in violent disgusting imagery etc but i don't know it just seems like really his his co. But his critics okay i'll stand up for mitch mcconnell his critics label him as an insult. The grim reaper he ju jitsu turns turns around owns it and then some of his supporters put on this display.

All right. We're going to help you make sense of the cacophony of coverage today on the show. We're going to lay out the new information we found about Trump's Moscow efforts and there were a number of them. His last effort which happened during the campaign, and as other investors were fleeing Moscow involved a partner who didn't appear to be in any position to get the job done. It was a deal in which Trump's proxies needed and sought help from the Kremlin that put Trump the candidate in a position of seeking favors from a hostile foreign power.
