Hong Kong marks handover anniversary under shadow of security law

"Could Beijing finally getting it away and silencing Hong Kong's democracy protests once and for all the Chinese President Xi Jinping has signed off strict security laws, which critics say will place the likes of the right of free speech and an independent judiciary at risk. The law has already had an effect one of the leading voices in the pro democracy. Movement Joshua Wong said he's left. One protest group what I'm joined by Monocle Asia editor and Hong Kong Bureau Chief James Chambers by Isabel Hilton. The editor of China Dialogue Welcome both backed Monaco for twenty four at James, let's begin with you. You are in Hong. Kong whether has been A marking of the twenty three years since British rule ended. What's the atmosphere like today? Yes, what was meant to be called establishment day a day of celebration for Hong Kong returned back to mainland, but for a lot of people here it's a solemn day to protest against. Beijing and usually there's a big march that takes place around three PM Hong Kong time in about an hour and leave from Victoria in Causeway Bay and on March to the government headquarters that hasn't been given permission to go ahead to see the police because of the COVID, nineteen restrictions but there are people starting to gather in Causeway Bay. and the police have already made their first arrest under this new national security bill. On the question, we're all asking waiting to see how this bill would be enforced. And I guess the the worrying onset is. Enforced very harshly. The first arrest was a guy who's who had a flag that just said Hong Kong independence on it. So there's no doubt that the police are going to use their full powers under under this bill to dampen down any goals. For Hong Kong independence, and it's going to have a massive impact on the ability of of activists and pro democracy protests in Hong Kong. To to to operate as they have done. For the last twenty three years. Where unlikely to see a big march this year like we did in years before because the police on hand, the right police are on the ground and are very quick to to arrest people. Isabel. It's not long since we were all given the details of what's in this bill. Could you just summarize it for us? Please well indeed. I think almost nobody outside the National People's. Congress was given the details until after the bill was rushed through a rigorous fifteen minute session. it criminalizes any act of secessions, version, terrorism, or collusion with foreign are external forces. The problem with all of those is who decides Schwarzenegger as secessions, version, terrorism, glues, and and exchange, said the question of how the law will be enacted. Is ABS will be? We'll be applied is absolutely critical including which judges. How will the? How will the legal authorities in Hong Kong React Carrie, Lam has the opportunity to appoint judges that she chooses. And the bill, also the acts now also contains a rather sinister provision. Which says that in got his described as complicated cases at Beijing can simply takeover the prosecution of the law now again. All of this is is. Subject to subjective judgment from Beijing, Beijing designs what collusion with Foreign or external forces Beijing decides. What subversion is and Beijing, can prosecute cases? There is no guarantee that they will be held in. Public is provision for them not to be and. Given the state of of the rule of law in China. I think this is really really serious concern. It's also we should remember the. Legal State in Hong. Kong has been robust and widely respected and indeed lawyers have frequently taken to the streets to defend their. That profession and the application of the law in Hong Kong in very large demonstrations when they felt that Beijing. was encroaching on it, and so the capacity to appoint different judges to these cases is signed that I didn't think Beijing trusts Hong Kong's lawyers who are after school didn't principles of rule of law and equality before the law and all those good things. To do it's will.

one one battler battler but but it's it's a a much much longer longer our our war war in in Hong Hong Kong Kong for for for for greater greater independence independence from from China China what what was was the the response response from from the the police police from from the the authorities authorities much much more more forceful forceful than than we've we've seen seen in in the the past past because because they they they they were were trying trying to to get get to to let's let's go go as as a a threat threat finance finance religion religion council council and and anywhere anywhere near near it it right right no no but but but but but but there's there's been been I I mean mean do do these these protests protests have have literally literally been been going going on on for for almost almost a a year year right right and and and and so so today today yes yes perhaps perhaps the the protesters protesters didn't didn't get get to to where where they they wanted wanted to to go go but but in in some some ways ways because because you you are are talking talking about about her her I I think think the the protest protest on on back back right right I I mean mean it it is is very very clear clear that that the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong are are upset upset with with the the new new legislation legislation proposed proposed in in Beijing Beijing and and they're they're taking taking to to the the streets streets again again even even though though the the virus virus situation situation Hong Hong Kong Kong perhaps perhaps without without fully fully eats eats them them and and that that to to me me I I think think is is almost almost more more important important than than sort sort of of what what happened happened in in in in in in in in in in for for today's today's round round right right and and insist insist it's it's round round after after round round after after his his vision vision care care about about with with the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong upset upset me me what what real real effect effect does does it it have have on on the the vital vital interests interests of of China China itself itself well well I I mean mean for for for for Beijing Beijing right right Bayview Bayview Hong Hong Kong Kong and and and and the the protests protests over over the the last last year year to to the the land land of of opportunity opportunity right right and and then then when when when when Britain Britain I I reverted reverted to to Hong Hong Kong Kong in in in in Britain Britain and and a a training training issue issue in in Hong Hong Kong Kong diversion diversion which which took took place place in in nineteen nineteen ninety ninety seven seven but but it it was was under under this this rubric rubric of of one one country country two two systems systems in in the the one one country country was was tryna tryna therefore therefore Hong Hong Kong Kong was was a a part part of of I I tried tried it it but but there there be be two two systems systems of of governance governance and and within within that that Hong Hong Kong Kong would would enjoy enjoy a a substantial substantial amount amount of of talking talking and and the the protests protests that that have have been been happening happening it's it's in in the the last last year year for for responding responding to to efforts efforts by by I I bet bet you you can can basically basically took took a a certain certain greater greater control control over over a a dead dead inside inside Hong Hong Kong Kong kind kind of of squeezing squeezing that that economy economy so so from from Beijing's Beijing's perspective perspective there there were were writing writing in in my my furnace furnace and and in in my my system system they they over over exaggerate exaggerate the the fact fact that that sort sort of of any any kind kind of of true true independence independence movement movement Hong Hong Kong Kong or or the the fact fact that that might might succeed succeed in in the the main main event event at at the the symbology symbology here here is is important important and and clearly clearly the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong are are kind kind of of standing standing up up to to China China and and and and that that of of course course kind kind of of adaptations adaptations for for other other US US sovereignty sovereignty disputes disputes involving involving China China including including Taiwan Taiwan also also has has implications implications for for domestic domestic politics politics what what is is left left at at this this point point in in your your assessment assessment of of the the two two systems systems as as part part of of the the one one country country two two systems systems some some of of the the United United States States a a look look at at it's it's basically basically gone gone but but is is that that an an exact exact I I think think that that overstates overstates the the situation situation but but clearly clearly I've I've China China has has on on one one level level right right the the national national security security level level are are much much more more forcefully forcefully asserted asserted itself itself it it hasn't hasn't moved moved out out to to sort sort of of take take down down everything everything else else that that makes makes the the Hong Hong Kong Kong what what it it is is today today and and what what makes makes the the system system also also different different from from that that in in the the mail mail about about it it certainly certainly if if adding adding an an extra extra layer layer of of screaming screaming in in actual actual air air pressure pressure also also it it sort sort of of has has been been backsliding backsliding on on on on efforts efforts to to serve serve allow allow other other people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong greater greater autonomy autonomy and and how how did did she she shoot shoot their their chief chief executive executive so so I I think think some some thought thought that that over over the the course course of of time time through through Hong Hong Kong Kong economy economy I I was was going going to to wake wake our our hotline hotline didn't didn't get get it it in in the the agreement agreement that that led led to to Hong Hong Kong Kong reversion reversion to to the the mainland mainland and and and and as as basically basically have have stopped stopped at at the the I I try try to to sort sort of of saying saying look look how how how how you you can can pass pass through through a a town town in in the the but but you you can't can't have have maybe maybe what what you you thought thought you're you're going going to to have have the the and and we we Beijing Beijing and and I I have have the the final final say say on on how how the the territories territories governed governed so so that that it it does does not not impinge impinge upon upon how how the the departing departing Beijing Beijing views views are are kind kind of of sovereignty sovereignty it's it's not not just just the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong were were upset upset about about the the developments developments with with a a fair fair number number of of people people in in Washington Washington both both Republicans Republicans and and Democrats Democrats I I should should say say who who were were also also in in sync sync some some genuine genuine concerns concerns including including today today with with sector sector prepares prepares saying saying he he will will not not certify certify that that Hong Hong Kong Kong is is autonomous autonomous which which as as I I understand understand it it puts puts a a question question it's it's trade trade treatment treatment by by the the United United States States does does that that put put pressure pressure on on Beijing Beijing it it feels feels like like it it hurts hurts Hong Hong Kong Kong more more than than it it does does Beijing Beijing I I think think ultimately ultimately it it will will hurt hurt Hong Hong Kong Kong more more than than hurt hurt gained gained attention attention because because Beijing Beijing views views this this through through the the land land sovereignty sovereignty much much more more than than through through the the lens lens of of finance finance and and economics economics think think back back twenty twenty or or thirty thirty years years ago ago Hong Hong Kong Kong was was greater greater China's China's financial financial sector sector right right it it was was it it was was sort sort of of the the engine engine of of of of a a kind kind of of coastal coastal economy economy would would be be under under close close he he played played an an enormous enormous role role in in China's China's opening opening reform reform but but now now try try as as much much wealthier wealthier too too much much stronger stronger and and then then many many people people try try to to talk talk about about how how they'd they'd like like to to see see John John hi hi I I play play the the role role that that Hong Hong Kong Kong once once before before and and so so it it just just pushes pushes out out more more companies

that that give give president president G.

Hong Kong protestors call for massive demonstration over new flag legislation

"Well in Hong Kong protesters a call the call the calling for a massive demonstration tomorrow as a legend of councils about to meet a new piece of legislation protecting the flag for more on this week's turnout arose in maths and she is Bloomberg international government executive editor Russell thank you so much for being here so as I say they're sort of to Pisa was was is we tend to think about the security legislation coming to Beijing but there's also one pending in Hong Kong as I understand it well that's right at that moment I took that to the flag obviously in Hong Kong but as far as really about the one central issue which is how much and in what way China encroaches on what Hong Kong sees as essential freedoms all people and companies home call rather see as essential freedoms that they sold was guaranteed with the handover of Hong Kong to China signed years ago and if they feel has being encouraged to call and and and that that's the question how Chinese guy kicking tile S. defense particularly that's happening in Hong Kong so you're saying that protests planned for tomorrow you could see those getting quite rowdy quite lazy possibly quite violent the question is just how much broad support is that still behind that great because you will see the hard core activists out to our age but otherwise is arrested home culturally still behind them today's hurricanes could be quite destructive but they may not be that sizable now because there are still restrictions on protests inside the protests in Hong Kong more than eight people eight Chrysler protests that at the moment but what we really need to try and understand is just how deep is the well still disappointment with China in Hong Kong locals lately so protests originally last year our number of almost half a million people I'll be at the point where we would start to see those number of people coming out again or are they simply worn down by a year a price tag bye said corona virus impact in Hong Kong by an economy that clearly in trouble and just one down to the point that they decided this is what it is exactly Rosalynn and that's why I had to borrow a term for the markets as Beijing basically price this in I mean they must have known there would be protests they must of not known to the United States might impose sanctions things like that the fact that they're willing to go forward the national people's Congress does that indicate basically Beijing's take a hard look at it the man I like it but they're willing to take the hit for the larger goal they have what seems to be the case that China is considering the moment here and there's a number of factors that come into that one is that there are legislative council elections in Hong Kong coming up in September and is a quite possibility that the majority and that would swing to opposition parliamentarians that they claim they want to get this done before that I want to get it done while of course people are still restricted in movement in Hong Kong and the house while the world's attention very much focused on the current virus and the difficulties that each country is having with that many countries are grappling with questions around I've seen their economies how to support their people in its linemen and that might be a good mind that to China to choose to do this they're obviously banking on the fact that international condemnation will be bad but the real hit to them from countries including U. S. and elsewhere might be limited on the white B. the appetite to have to hit them as hard as they could be affected in all the time so this was a finally this is the British gave Hong Kong back essentially to China it's been one country two systems some people think that may be gone now is that an overstatement to are we still gonna have one country two systems or as Beijing on the way to saying it's one country period full stop I would find a thoroughly Hazlett sectors to the idea of one country two systems also because I need to be careful in other areas including the capital and I don't of course when the front No Way international business including the banking sector too quickly the Hong Kong but one thing that's been interesting Mason is as hot as China's saying that I need home call as much as they did maybe ten years ago because I have a strong financial sector at hiring many international companies including banks can operate just on the border of mainland China and that does not fit in bed that can design considered promote the business of doing finance in China the trade that they trained three put the cursor Hong Kong and China is minimal so China has been saying for some time that we don't need Hong Kong as much as we used in the past did you think we might and baffle it's less important to us dissidents that maintaining pretense of one country two systems anymore because we can cut come coming out of the global financial system and it really doesn't matter that much so that's very much that thinking they were aware of at least say publicly that one's one that the cheapest and awful off the gate remains it's important for them to decide up front facing at least to the reality to many people is that it it it it's less of an issue a formal okay thank you so very much as R. bloomer calling Roslyn Matheson on Hong Kong

But it's a good sense of community but come rotary everyone's GonNa there. There's music on in people yelling and shouting and you've got different different personality types. Yeah it's pretty. It's pretty cool because the and how we managed to Kinda like and I guess it locked but I guess there's also some sort of skill for us is that we we managed to create some sort of atmosphere around. That is really really really cool. And I've been I've done last time. I think I've done eight thousand nine competitions myself. I have exactly no occasions zero occasions. I had the privilege of lifting from that kind of audience that we've had on the permit Never and I've done Europeans world's multiple multiple table national championships and local meats and regional. So whatever and don't absolutely none of them we've had the atmosphere that we have here and it's very special I think that's is it stems by like it's a very tight community. People show up to see that to see their friends and so forth and especially on on the While the females are lifting females brings other females to watch them females also just happens to bring other guys watching them and it's still. It's kind of like that. New flavors seemed girls lifting weights. I think that's really really cool And then of course we have people watching the guys also but it tends to be less people watching the guys Because like everyone see once in a while the guy lifting heavy weights so that's not as cool but we have good. It's good atmosphere affair there also but I think the special special atmosphere comes when the girls are lifting and the easier the lighter guys live. That's insane I think the the last time we had the first Omani woman hating yeah that was on the on the five had at the hotel. Yes take the Dumont. Strength System guys brought one of the girls That was really really cool. And I think that but it's also something that is as for me really humbling. Being in this this kind of lack area or this region and being in the forefront of that because already from the start we had to Kuwait the guys came over for. I think it was the first or second maybe the second part meats and then they went back back and from that sprung. Do the Barber Club. So they have like a hobby in Kuwait. Then you had to monetize coming.

"And however while establishing link between pollution and lower test scores the study didn't prove costs, and the fact first of all is the pollution getting into out brain shit. We be Warri. I think we should. Would be worried because this study does confirm with other studies show, and it seems to be logical as well as scientific. So I I am worried in I do think that there are things that we can do is individuals in things that we can't do that the government can do. And I must say that this autumn. We've had much better weather pollution wise than we've had before. Is it an accident of fluke a statistical fluke, maybe, but I don't think so, you know, four years ago at the National People's Congress Premier Li basically declared war on pollution, and I think it's working we can see it outside, and there is data, for example, the worst kind of pollution the smallest particles pm two point five and smaller is down by one third in China since that announcement, and if you look at this. Study that has been discussed in about the brain in the top ten polluted cities in the world. China is no city in China is as there. So we're not saying things are perfect. But I think they're getting better, but we still need to worry. We still need to take individual and collective action. But have you don't look like worried at all to me. And I'm not too old. Very high IQ and you don't worry about the decree. It's it's it's because you know, I believe that. I'm not worried as Harvey said, you're worry by you. Don't really look worry. I think while he has no years. We don't eat too. We don't need worry. But we need action. Correct. We need to do things. And then by the way, I do not why because I'm not men said the worst hit a men and senior men of the reason the reason why men are with low education active outdoor activity. Most of them are doing work outside. It's not it's a simple that as if more women were doing work outside. Yeah. Exposure sorry. Okay. Okay. I'm I'm sorry. according to another report from the Wall Street Journal is shows and air quality index. One hundred greeter is considered unhealthy for sensitive individuals during this year, according to the rankings, then couvert British Columbia one hundred sixty five which is on top of the list and associated one hundred and sixty two there are high on the ranking if the pollution chat board on my goodness adult is one hundred sixty two two by wander nece, if to to Peru hundred twenty seven guess, what is the number for Beijing? It is sixty one that means Beijing gets better. Okay. According to the air Vija wishes de source in the reason, it's getting better is that China's making a big effort to get rid of the major polluters, which are big factories. It's hard to wean these and stuff off of coal. It could be done more quickly, but it's being done, but this country. Seems to be making great progress in electric vehicles. So they're less polluting. Also, they're making great progress in solar and wind power to cleaner cleaner energy. So but the stuff it's not done overnight. So the fact that war was declared on pollution for years ago. And there's already been a thirty percent improvement gives me hope that the situation is getting better my eyes. Tell me that it's getting better. My nose tells me that it's getting better in your dust China do enough to help environmental protection during this year. And what else should also be paid attention to? I think we have tried our best and as still trying our best. But if if we agree agreed eighty I would say, hey, we're not doing enough. There are a lot of other things to do in besides closing down, the polluting factories and covering up the construction sites, you know, to cover the dust and then switching.

"How are you doing really well good to see you? So last Tuesday's results, and you know, you, and I were talking before the election that we thought from some of the national people we know that I will was the one place they consistently told us they had no read on whatsoever. And then they would ask us what we thought. And we're like we have no rain on we live here. We have no on it whatsoever. Right. And if you would have given me. A multiple choice. Which of these scenarios rank them in order. Do you think is the most likely to occur, and you would have given me the three or four most likely scenarios the one that did happen? I would probably ranked having the least possibilities in the reason being is because we had an incumbent governor. But not really meaning Kim Reynolds had never won election, which means she's kind of getting all the backlash of being the established candidate. But none of the benefit by virtue of never having put together a successful statewide organization with the built in advantages and name ID because everybody says they hate income bits, but they get reelected like ninety percent of the time in America. Right. So she kind of was in this no-man's land where she's not really an incumbent. But she kind of is she's running against one of the few remaining Democrats in America who openly run on capitalism, whose family has been very successful corporately in our state and has created a lot of jobs and a lot of economic development interstate. Sure. But the problem he. He has is while that should be a platform to establish himself as the moderate. Democrat. He's also the former head of Planned Parenthood of Iowa. Which makes he's got to. He's got a threat in the he's the capitalist on one hand. But he's also the head of Planned Parenthood on the other. So he's trying to threaten needle at the exact same time. And then you have three established congressional Republican incumbents in the state two of them. One of them is very established. He's he is holding on in the most Republican part of the state Steve king barely barely. And he's there's calls for his excommunication from the party and everything else right now. Then you have the middle part of the state, which even though the western part of the states, the most Republican it's this middle third of the state where you and I have operated the last seven or eight nine ten years. It's probably the most conservative meaning that a lot of the activism the judicial retention election. The tea party movements in recent years when you ran for governor. This is the middle part of the state has actually been the more conservative part of the question. Right. And her congressional camp. Candidate David Young. I think they call that race three seconds after the polls ended right and then out in eastern, Iowa, a very likable Republican who's conservative, but more populous small business guy built a nice base in rod bloom. He's getting destroyed. So she's getting no coattails. In fact, the Republicans on the ballot in parts of the state. She needs to do. Well are dragging the ticket down and yet on election day. She's the one who survives. Now. I think this is fascinating for the country going forward because I don't think there's too many persuadable voters left in America. And I think the ones that are persuadable aren't necessarily persuadable the way that they used to be. Tell me why you think we got these results in Iowa, and what lessons can be learned going forward. Because I do think this is a test market for what the next election cycles going to look like well after election night nephews, you summed it all up. I said this..

I mean for as many people who were rooting for him to win, lose or whatever. There were some people on the other side of that that he says, you know, what? The hell are you doing? Throwing the ball. We were one of them at the time because he would hit the parley and everything. But once again, let's give the guy credit. He put his money. Anybody puts their money up. Believe me gets respect for me 'cause I've done it for so long. And just to recap, it's about twenty or thirty thousand pop on each of those. And then a parlay at William Hill. One ten to win three thirty eight was the was the was the math on that. And that's one hundred ten thousand so good stuff there. Jimmy. The NFL is here week one. This is what year forty-three for you out in Vegas. Yeah, isn't that amazing? We'll start year forty four and January since I actually landed year forty two and actually had what I would call Michael going, give me my. My break when opening up the sports vote for him way down at the Royal in which was his first hotel shooting first casino and that was in nineteen seventy seven. So I've grown up with this stuff Doug naturally, you when you living out here and doing all the stories out here you can see how sports betting has changed. I'm glad I'm a part of it now and hope to be a part of it for a while only because you know, way back thirty forty years ago, people like me the old time was a railing on people to listen to say, listen to sing to be nationwide. And here it is some thirty five years later, but I'm glad I'm here. I don't mind having competition from anywhere else. So we're just as open as anyone else and trying to land some deal. But it is gonna be kind of fun. And does suggest that the, of course you talk for more national people than I do this particular point. But I'd say three to five years, we're doing fifteen to seventeen states. It'll be really, really involved in and also so for an old timer like me, it's about time. I sure hope that's the case. And I love that you've embraced it because. Vegas isn't going anywhere and the more the merrier I like that approach. Is there a story that sorta stands out to you in your week? All his years of for week one. For we, it's it's unique just coming tomorrow night when we had a gentleman wander and event better, you know, but he wanted and this is four or five weeks ago and us and like everybody else, which is different. What I mean by that Doug is like putting up his first week games, you know, months in advance that was never done before we were sleep at the wheel meeting the bookmakers, giving people a chance to do what they want year round is something that we've learned over the years. So we put up the first week like everybody else, and we were taking pretty good bets on both sides of a lot of these games. But then the gentlemen came in and we had the Philadelphia Eagles a four point favorite over the Atlanta, Falcons and actually know all about the eagles winning last year. Nash, we're all about the stuff of Super Bowl, hangover and possible injury to the eagles quarterback gentlemen. I give all the credit world. He put his money that one hundred ten thousand dollars to win one hundred thousand on the falcons plus four the games down to two and a half. Right now..

What'd you say, Paul, go ahead, Dave, go ahead, Dave. Good afternoon Mark I was at the game. With my son we saw. Hater warming up we're anticipating what kind of welcome. He would get we, did not stand but, we vigorously clapped and. Here's the deal I think your analysis. Is spot on we weren't clapping for what he did. Seven years ago we were clapping for what he's done since, the all-star game and I'll tell, you the fans there are the most. Educated about this, the fans thirty eight thousand in the. Stadium that night they've seen the follow up these guys, that are commenting. These national people they probably haven't. Seen Joshua's apology They'll all say, that it's irrelevant that haters a slug. And a bigot, and he shouldn't be baseball and by. Standing you're endorsing his comments that's their take right but, what's your response. To respond to what they said We, were clapping. For what he's done in the last. Week, how he. Didn't lie about it he didn't minimize it he took it like a man he apologized to his. Players his players have this back figuratively and well we don't. We don't know that we saw that no we don't That's something you never know I mean. Let's suppose, Paul does something terrible I might. Come on the air and say polls, got my full support and I could be seething behind. The scenes we really don't know what the play we at the players have said but we don't we actually don't know if they have as back I mean you can't really speak for them the ones that have chosen to speak which is, a select number have. Said what they've said but I think that that's a tougher call what his teammates actually think about. This just as, we learned with regard to the Packers. That so many of those players who said. Publicly that they had. The back. Of super, tight, end. His name I can't remember anymore and later said that they, were furious for the way he. Was from the descent. Of the team so that part's. You just can't automatically assume. That anyway let's go to jail of the, northwest side. You're on news talk eleven thirty WINS. Said, hi Mark Go ahead Dale. Okay I was at the game and like a total Paul just tell me we stood in clamp. Forum when it came on the field because of what. He did when the news broke he apologized. Did everything is supposed. To do and everything we're, apology Showing hater that we support him and he, is not what he was as a teenager he did everything correctly And you know and then we cheered after he got. Done with his pitcher I know but how do you respond, to the point that you're standing up at endorsing a bigot Because that's what. The attacks. Are saying there that is an out note live we were not doing that at all They'll say this is the first time that he appeared on the field sense we. Learned about the tweets that is correct But. So it was your first chance to boom if you wanted to if you. Wanted to your everybody could. Have they didn't I'd say good at least ninety percent or more did not feel that way otherwise they wouldn't have I I think. That the critics are saying that that is the way that you that you want to feel, thank you for the call now people are making the tie in here and I'm going. Fast here as you. Can tell people are making the tie in how can you criticize somebody. For dealing for the anthem that's an obvious argument the people that. Are kneeling for the anthem are, doing it right, now they're. Not making a mistake that they're apologizing for. Seven years later they are. Disrespecting their fellow man their country soldiers police officers anybody else's ever fought. For represented that flag they're doing it right now there is a difference in criticizing someone for something that you have done now in won't apologize. For at a situation. In which a guy did something when he was. Seventeen years, old has apologized for so two equate the two is ridiculous I'll. Also point out that the.

"You're listening to writer than you on cbs sports radio what's going on welcome back into the show bill rider with the here on the way tuesday that feels like kind of a friday tomorrow is a holiday for most of you i'll be here the guys will be here when i was a sports writer in kansas city missouri i discovered this guy's work i'm a huge fan i've been reading them ever since i've had dinner with the mcgraw's doesn't kansas city he is the voice of oklahoma city berry trammell the very talented sports columnist for the daily oklahoman and he joins me now on the show mr trammell my friend how's life in the in the midwest while we're doing all right i think that march so i'm about i'm about to get back up to kansas city favorite restaurant in the world you got to eat there all the time they're fort while i did i was at once a week they gather the chickens badeni berry barry let's start here i i could not have been more wrong the show writer the new renamed writer the no one as it relates to the paul george situation i thought there was a i'm not gonna math berry but i thought there was a negative fifteen percent chance that he was going to be there what what did i miss what did all the national people miss as it related to paul george obviously returning to the thunder i think what i wasn't i mean i wasn't quite as deep of negativities year but i was not on the on the upper side of fifty fifty i was on the lower side of it i think we miss couple of things one is when a guy has the guys kind of injury the paul george i think security in a certain level of familiarity matters to it more so than a guy who has not gone to a catastrophic catastrophic injury like that so security what mattered to paul george stance the the three plus one year contract but also i don't know that fall wanted to give away any season in which he wasn't sure what what he was getting into the other thing we missed is this weird against conventional wisdom but just because it looks like russell westbrook pain to play with just because everybody has sad that he would be a pain to play where just because kevin durant has tweeted it out or or late night tweeted he's leaked it out that he wasn't crazy about playing with westbrook doesn't mean that some people wouldn't find it find it good and it's pretty clear that all george armed to bond with russell westbrook's i didn't see that coming even when they were saying it was happening last season i didn't really buy into it but that's clearly what happened and so you know the thunder turns out to try was a was a whole month for them they got they got a long term commitment from paul george barry trammell sports columnist for the daily oklahoman here on the show writer than you with me bill ryder berry one of the things that i love living in new york and i love living in l a for four or five years but one of the things that that puts me off when i'm in those markets when people use the word flyover country and i hate it and i'm from the midwest my brother was born in oklahoma city there is a perception i think an unfair one but it perception about that part of the country and let's start with oklahoma city in particular that it's a backwater it's obviously not can you give us some perspective on the advantages in the appeal to superstars living in that town because we saw cal i know kevin durant eventually left but he didn't leave the first time that he obviously paul george is willing to live there and once lived there for several more years what is the difference for a superstar living in oklahoma city oklahoma than some of the other markets that.

"Let's not talking talk about ryan o'reilly because that's the key linchpin right now for the sabres is ryan rally gonna get traded not traded whatever i think ryan rally as a role on this saber steam but if he gets treated as long as you get the return that you should expect from so you that's what he talks about is you they have to get faster well when he i understand that ryan when he's at the top of his game thinks a fast game and we'll let the puck do the work for him and then you play faster that way and you can get away with it and there are many nights when ryan riley is your best player on the ice but i remember him saying during the season on a post game show that because i said can you did he say it's on me yeah after that but but we're i said can you do you think you can be a seventy point player in this league is i think he can be never has been and he goes and he goes oh my yes absolutely i can be he goes there are too many slumps that i go in that last too long he goes i get into a slump and they last longer than other players do and that's why my point totals are down and he's right that's exactly right but why if he's good as a lot of the national people make him out to be why does he go in these prolonged slumps why in overtime my sitting with brian cosio saying rhino riley meet a horrible play on that overtime goal to get them to delusion we said that more than once we also said what a great play by rhino rally to help you win the game is it is it conditioning is in preparation what do you think he's he's well conditioned the throwing it out there i think he needs to shave his beard he's gonna be faster and younger i'll lovie lovie shaved his beard looked like he was younger i'll tell you things about for me for rhino rally i think that there's a difference with ryan rally at home in on the road if you have them in the right role because you can have will be your number one center and played the other teams second line because you can have rhino rally tried to shut down the teams first line which frees casey middle stat to play third line and you're at home and i think it works perfectly so that would be my role for rhino rally on my buffalo sabres seem to i think they overuse them in his face off abilities like it breaks the rhythm of the game so much when every time rhino rally takes defensive zone has to go to the bench can't sustain that rush because you can score a goal win a face off get it off the wall defenseman pinch you're up to on one year scoring but rhino rally is on his way to the bench i think he's gotta take way less face offs and have more of a contained role to be success and i'm with three ex players here so i'm going to throw this out here i think not being a former nhl player that the constant i need to be better i i was bad here even after a win.

"You know it's funny the letters have become much more national over the years and i have some know the column has a bigger audience so you know if somebody shows a friend in california they wind up getting hooked on it and yet it's almost as if the national people and international people give a nod to the fact that it's in boston you know i'll get letters from london and they'll be no i'm in boston right so i i also think that a lot of people come through here come through college and i notice that a lot of the letters i get might come from other states but their alumni of boston university of other places like that so you know it's interesting even even when it gets bigger which it has you know what's on boston dot com and the boston globe so people people will say well i know with winter there but here it's summer where they're writing that i'm not in some place and i think that's cool too that even if it gets bigger you still feel like you're you're swooping into boston for the day about the city that people respond to outside in a good way or a bad way i don't know i think more so than a lot of other cities except maybe new york but something of a boston i it just people immediately somehow take sides when it what is involving the city at least i found found over the years here now you have other things you do at the globe how do you balance your time you know it used to be that i was very fifty fifty between the advice column and writing features and the names column and just because the book it's been a lot of love letters and my wonderful colleagues at the globe have helped you know handle some of the work i can't do but we we recently did a love letters podcast that has one season and eight episodes and so that that was some time too so i find that more of migraine of spend thinking about love lives than it used to be but that's probably a good thing it means that no i.

"Yes technically speaking there a small parties that are not part of the communist party of china and they have names like the guomingdang revolutionary committee for instance will a chinese party these are actually sort of remnants kind of leftovers from the period before the chinese civil war way back in 1949 which existed from a brief period when china had a genuine but actually rather limited and very chaotic multyparty system however these counties are allowed to stand against the communist party this new competition against them within a system and therefore you might think in the morris advisory elements rather than being multi party in the sense that we understand it in some like europe or north america so just talked to a bearish the the national people's congress and a ten flew in over there the real top topdogs in the game the national people's congress is century the parliament joined at sometimes characterized in a sort of that standard the adjective as the rubber stamp parliament because of course it never actually vets down anything that's been put it by the leadership occasionally and i am talking about occasionally you do get certain amount to send in the vote about twenty years ago when a large and very controversial project the three gorges dam across the yangtze river was being put through they were actually some tens old no votes in congress because there were set number of the nbc's members youtube that that damn might coors too much uh ecological damage or indeed give way to a a disaster if it were to collapse but that's a rare example the policy not going through is a certain amount of debate there behind closed doors but it's very far again from the kind of parliament that you would expect in a liberal democracy so how does the ponzi kind of uh enforce rules upon its own members.
